HISTUHY OF FORT PEGK SCHOOL
The Fort Peck School first opened its doors on Gctobsr 1,
1934,as an elementary school of eight grades with an enroll-
ment of 215 and a faculty of nine members. 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
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. 'me basketball team had a most suc-
cessful season, and the track team had improved so much that

Time: 1950 Place: This troubled world
I,Jimmy Lessley, now aged 30, wish to write down my exper-
ience on the night of June 29,l950.0n that date after an ex-
tremely heavy meal which my butler brought up to me, I lay
down upon the couch. The combination of green pickles and
whipped cream brought troubled dreams to my repose.It seemed
that I was in a vehicle which transferred me from place to
place with great rapidity.I was carried to a great orthope-
dic hospital where Marjorie Armstrong,a great brain special-
ist, was in the operating room, performing a delicate opera-
tion on Dru Darwin Harbicht,the great paleontologist,who was
injured by the falling of a great dinosaur which he was re-
constructingo Dr. Armstrong was aided by Viola Gagnon, a
blood specialist, and Claudia Christensen, an anesthetisto
I was then carried to the battle-front of a savage civil
war in Germany. At a small telegraph station in the midst of
a bomb-barded area was Stanford Hall, war correspondent for
the AlBOGl8t6d Press, sending back a full report of the hero-
ism of General Robert Lee's volunteer batallion from the UCS
national guardo Their heroi m had been immortalized on film
by Sammy Sampson, ace news reel reporter who barely escaped
with his lifeo
The next scene in my wanderings takes me to Schofield Bar-
racks in Hawaii to the home of Commander General McKeever,
head of the army 'post, and his charming wife, the former
Dorothy Chorpening, who gave up a brilliant com ercial car-
eers General and Mrso McKeever were being honored by the
presence of Captain Trudo and Lto Brick, who had recently
been posted in Hawaiio
Again the scene changed and I was carried to Washington DQ
CQ where a conference was being held in the White Houses The
topic of general discussion was whether or not the farmers
were receiving just pay for their cropso The farmers' side
was presented by Homer Reno, Senator from Montana. Sitting
at another desk was Dona Hively with e shorthand pad on her
knee, rapidly taking down everything that was being said. In
an adjoining office of the Secretary of State sat Velma
Weeres pounding a typewritere
CLASS PROPH CY Qcontinuedl
Suddenly I found myself in the industrial section of New
York. In a secluded place I sau a dress shop bearing the
name of Wynona Le Glairec On entering I perceived Alice Dee
Tienne abosrbed in fitting a dress on the former Helen
Bsrbold, who is nov the wife of a famous doctoro
My magic vehicle then transported me to the slum district
of the city where an accident had occurred, which injured
two street urchineo Immediately upon the scene appeared
Myrtle Flateng who by this time had become a distinguished
Social Service Workero Two walleknown nurses were called
and Blanche Sauber and Edith Norman appearede
Then I was taken to a transcontinental airport where I
saw Grace Nonne, a stewardesa, assisting Mary Wright ' into
the planet Mary had become a welleknown art designerclnside
I also saw Waneta Long, who was traveling to San Francisco
where she will superintend and orphans' homer
A loud knocking on the door disturbed my dreans and I IBB
brought back, back to realityc The butler announced Wilford
Casterline. It appeared that Wilford had been studying dies
sal engineering quite intensely the last few years and had
some project in mind that he wanted me to backs

4 Daemon HISTORY
On November eighth,l957, THE DREDGE appeared for the first
time in Fort Peck High School. Our policy always has been
to inform, reform, teach and uphold the tradition of truth
and honesty. Free speech is s great blessing which should
not oe abused, and we have endeavored to respect this ideals
The first volume consisted of eight issues, the
first three of which were edited by Sa my Sampson---the
concluding five by Rae Jeanne Berube.
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.
The staff is to be complimented for its perseverance and
coordinance in bringing about greater ease of operations.

supervision of Mrs. Eriksen and Mreo Noyes, work was begun
on the Fort Peck yearbook on April twentieth, 1939,
Last year's yearbook featured the administration of Fort

title to correspond with this themeo
As the project has become noted also for its excellent
fossil beds, the theme became prehistoric in nature, and the

Basketball prospects for the season of '59 were unusually
bright when approximately thirty athletes responded to Gooch
T. 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
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.

Fort Peck's track accompdishments for the year 1959 were
rather meager, due to lack of the usual District f3 meet,men
cf veteran standing lost from the '58 season, and the fetal
occurence of the Juniors' Promenade on the eve of the annual
Big Four Track and Field Meet,

THE REEZES BLOW ,
Gently through my window came
A breeze that stirred the ppges,
A tome of romance and history
Of a love of the Middle Ages.
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.
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
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.
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.
