The enrolment continued to increase that year until a peak of '537 was reached on January 18, 1955. During the year a total of 412 pupils were enrolled. The student bodydwas composed of pu- pils from 25 states, the District of Columbia, and the Pro- vince of Saskatchewan, Uanadag they came from schools rang- ing all the way from a one-room rural to the largest in New York City. u The first .day of the second year found the school en- larged, the ninth and tenth grades being added, and the faculty increased from nine members to twelve. The temporary school was moved from its former position in the barracks to the location of the permanent school to which two new wings had been added. The enrollment the first day was 529 of which 96 were in the ninth and tenth grades. The en- rollment continued to increase until a peak of 551 was reached on April 16, 1936. The total enrollment for the year was 471. Although it was only a two-year high school, the students and faculty, with full cooperation of the community, presented an original Christmas cantata which has been used as a- basis for succeeding programs. They established another precedent by offering an operetta, "H. M. S. Pinaforef' by Gilbert and Sullivan. This was the first year of competitive sports in the Fort Peck School.'n1e new coach, Clyde Banfield, led both the basketball and track teams to honors. No change was made in the school the third year. The en- rollment the first day was 529. 'me peak, reached March 1, 1937, las 420, and the total, 494. 'Exe students carried on the traditions established by the second-year members in that they again presented a Christmas cantata and the oper- etta, "8honita." An inexperienced track team succeeded in placing second in the district meet. The basketball team improved and for the first tim? the Fort Peck School was re- presentad in the district touxilqmnt. In the fall of '37, the eleventh and twelfth grades were added, and the faculty was increased from twelve to fourteen mowers. The enrollment the first day was 472, of which 211, were in the junior-senior high school. The peak of the year was 502. This was a gala year for extracurricular activi- ties in the Fort Peck School. ln addition to the traditional Christmas program, oparetta, and sports, the ever ambitions students put out a school paper, organized a pep club and science club, presented a play, and edited an annual. The Junior Class sponsored a junior-senior banquet and prom on lay 6. Baccalaureate and Cormmncement were held May ZZ and 25 respectively. Several school dances were scattered throughout the year.

Starting on September fourteenth,1938, a body of students elected Stanford Hall editor of the new volume which, at last,totaled fifteen issues, A revision of tit1e,design and illustration, adding new features to the contents, and a new method of printing, were the notable changes which helped to bring new information to its readers.

Clyde Banfield's initial call for practice. Included in this squad were four first-string veterans from the '38 quiz? tet who formed the nucleus of the team that lost only two district games throughout the season. after thefirst flurry in the scramble for postions the squad was cut to twenty, and later a final reduction to e- leven wa made, those surviving the last cut, earning their coveted FP. The Bnnfield Basketeers opened the season suspiciousl.y by smashing their three-year old jinx with the Opheim VikinGS in convincing style. Highlights of the season were the Brockton, Nashua, Wolf Point, and Malta games, every one of which played before 8 packed gymnasium of wildly-cheering spectators.In the second Brockton contest the Indian warriors trailed all the nay,to come from behind only in the last quarter as they sank six- teen out of seventeen free throws. The Nashua game at Nashua featured a spirited rally by the Porcupines which Costerlinq substitute Beaver Center, halted with a bee-utiful bucket from the middle of the floor with seconds to go,as Fort Peck came out on the long end, Z5-30. The followiny night the Blue-and White Bombers evened the score with the Wolf Point Wolverines as they countered from the field and the gift line to win 27-24. The Malta set-to was one of the fastest ever witnessed on the Recreation Hall floor, as the shifty Mustangs fought the Peck Passers tooth-and-nail to keep the outcome in doubt up to the final gun, the decision going to the home five by a Sl-30 margin. The tournament was a Qremorseful one for the apparently championship-bound Fort Peck aggregation, as they were un- ceremoniously bumped off in the semi-finals by a distinctly hot Wolf Point team. They came back with a bang,however,to easily overpower a hapless Malta five, 41-50. First Bowl Left to Right: Lewis Armstrong, Russel Farmen Eugene Fryberger, Stanford Hall, La Verne Crosse .

Chasing through it, page by page The breeze unfurled a story, ind now I know how Helen of Troy Aeheived her feme and glory. Though years ago through ages old These people once existed, Their life is here for all to see Pow lives and loves were twisted. The breeze fades to a whisper In volume and in chill, I close the book and lay it down But Helen lives on still. --Dolores Coryell -41- SOPHOMORE IREMNER When you try so hard to think But your mind just has to wander, I feel myself joyously sink Into thoughts of what's out yonder. Far away pastures are always greenest Or so the saying goes, I know with me I like the farthest best When I sink into a glad repose. I never seem to get much doneg In fact I'm awfully slow, But just the some it's lots of fun To sit and dream--or don't you know? --P. E. Corey -42- 5 FRES MAN HUM! Hcme isn't just a place to eat and to sleep Nor is it a place your belongings to keep. It's not just a place to be mpty all day Where the family and friends all stay away, But home is a place for love and for joy A place where each one, each girl and each boy Gan welcome his friends with heart warm and happy, That is the way home ought to be. --Barbara Flood -45- BIRTH or A SENIOR On October 1, 1954, the Fort Peck School opened its doors to the students of Fort Peck and the surrounding townsg the enrollment was 215 and a faculty of nine members. The enrollment steadily increased and reached the peak on January 18, 1935 with a total of 337. The main school build- ing, located in the townsite, was not large .enough to accomodate all the pupilsg therefore, three barracks in the 52 block were used as class rooms for grades 4-8 inclusive. The eighth grade is of prime interest not only because it was the highest grade when school opened, out because several of that class are still in the midst and are finish- ing their high school course here. The eighth grade teachers, Marguirite Hannen, the class advisor, and Grace Donlan, have positions in other schools. Miss Hannan left two years after the school was established here and Miss Donlan stayed for three years. The eighth grade graduation took place in the Recreation Hall on June 14, 1935, and since that time twenty-four out of the thirty-two students have separated and moved to dif- ferent parts of U. S. Those who are still attending school in Fort Peck, and are among those who graduate, this year, are: Stanford Hall, Helen Herbold, Dona Hively, James Lessley, Blanche Sauber, Velma Weeres, and Mary Wright. Boyd Neustsl attended school here during the eighth grade and after his freshman year left school, to return this year as a sophomore. Dorothy Chorpening, who also started here in the eighth grade, left before the end of the term and went to Washington. She returned the next year and entered as a freshman. Those students who left Fort Peck are attending school at the following places: Bill Williams, Seattle,.
