Historians Taught Global Facts
All students took part in social studies this year.
The sophomores traveled around the world in
world history. In American history the iuniors
came to understand their own country's history
better. The seniors studied the background of
social living. Through the use of visual aids, pam-
phlets, and panel discussions, the students re-
ceived a greater understanding of what they were
studying. The students weekly newspapers, Our
Times and The American Observer, informed
them on the present state of affairs in our nation
and the rest of the world.

It Was Anything But English
Three foreign language clubs lent that cosmo-

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
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-
Each of the clubs participated in the Home-
coming activities and Friendship Week.
Six spirited cheerleaders were elected by
a vote of the student body to promote and
lead school pep. 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.

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.

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-

was so busy making matches that she didn't have
time to do any matching for herself.

Seventy-one students were selected as members of
the 1954-1955 Little Dodger staff. 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

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-

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-

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-

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

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
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-
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
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.

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
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.

Panthers crossed the double line in the first quar-

and were leading 12-7 with Time running out.

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

Panthers Broke Their Losing Streak
Hopes were high in the Panther camp at the be-
ginning of the 1954-55 basketball season. 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.
Kudron makes a Iwo-pointer.

And There You Are...
and the shop in room 8 is now closed. 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.
