The many pictures, articles, snapshots, etc. were all done on their behalf,and without their cooperation they would not have been pos- sible. As you probably know, this year our annual staff did not have an advisor. In the past, it has usually been the work of the ad- visor te turn out the annual with very little cooperation from the students. But, this year, student, teacher, and staff member alike all played their parts and played them exceedingly well, what you find on the following pages of this yearbook is the finished pro- duct, and we hope it will recall the school year of 1949-50 for you over and over again in the future very accurately. If it does that, we will have succeeded in our purpose and achieved our goal. Yes, this year, as the annual staff dedicates this annual to the entire Student Body, the Pierce High School takes a great deal of pride in announcing the fact that every page of this book is the work of the students. May the Student Bodies in the years to come at P. H, S. look back at our experience this year,and benefit from it. 4-, SUPERlNTENDENT'S M SSAGE nLeugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone, For this brave old world must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own.n To the ones who are leaving these hallowed halls of learning this ycar, I wish to state the following: you have been a truly wonderful class, you have always cooperated 1001 in all things we have asked you to do, and cooperation is one of the most important things that are acquired in school. You have, indeed, learned your lesson very well. , To the people who will be with us here next year, I wish to say this: I am looking forward to working with you again. These have been very enjoyable days that we have all spent together, and I only hope that the days in the coming future with you will be just as enjoyable as those in the past have been. Again, I bid e farewell to the people leaving and welcome to those who are staying. Good luck to all of you! Myron L. Hunt, Superintendent of Pierce Schools. .4 - 4-0 Mvaou L.

Our class officers chosen for the Junior year were as follows: Advisor ------ - -------- H ---------- Mrs, Hunt President ------ ----- ------ Cole waldemar Vice President -- ------------- Robert Bacon Secretary and Treasurer -- Virginia Robinson Representative to the Student Council Maynard Anderson Those active in sports during the Junior year were: Leonard Stewart, Robert Bacon, Louie Larson, Cole Waldemar and Darrel Fra- zier of the boys and Virginia Robinson of the girls. In the play last year WThe Cannibal Queenn, Louie Larson and Virginia Robinson took part. In our school carnival last year, the Junior queen candidate Clarice Johnson placed second in the contest, administered unto us by the Sophomore Glass. Our Junior-Senior Banquet was held on April 14, 1949. we en- joyed a very nice dinner prepared by Mrs. Donohue and we also heard and enjoyed many ensuing speeches, 1 -11 Our next event, the last for our Junior year, was the Junior Prom. This was held May 21, 1949, our theme being WSpring Gardenn. Everyone enjoyed this very much and we were sincerely looking for- ward to our Senior year. Here we are at the top of the ladder, which means that we are Seniors at last. Our officers this year are: Advisors ---- ------ -------- Mr, and Mrs. Hunt President ------- -------- Robert Bacon Vice President -- ---------- -- Jack Johnson Secretary and Treasurer ---- Clarice Johnson Rep esentative to the Student Council ------ Virginia Robinson At our first meeting of the year, we chose our class motto which was WThere is no formula for success, just hard work.n Our class colors are blue and yellow. Our class flower is the red rose. , ' The Senior Ball was held December 17th in the gymnasium, but we didn't do very well on it. Our boys represented us very well in the line of sports this year, we had our pictures taken in Lewiston on March ll, 1950. The Seniors had a Saint Patricks Day party on March 17, 1950, and a very large crowd attended, and fun was had by all, iFinally, our graduation exercises were held Saturday, May 20, 1950, and it was very well attended. gyti.. 3, R Cf? gfhsyqn L.

WHO KNOWS??????? SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY---- I, Glariee Johnson, have been the one chosen to write the Senior Class Prophecy for our annual this year. I had been vacat- ioning at Yellowstone National Park for quite a few months and one day I happened to be introduced to the owner of the resort, who was none other than Jack Johnson, In addition to being the owner of this very popular resort, he was also a very talented radio singer over the local radio station. It seemed, that at one time or another, all the members of the Senior Class of 1950 had stop- ped at his resort. It was through him that I learned what each of them was doing. Here's what I found out: Darrel Frazier was part owner in his father's service station business in Pierce, and doing quite well at it, too, Louie Larson was the owner of a large ranch outside of Weippe. He was getting rich awfully fast. June Knapton get married a few months after she had graduated and then she decided to go back to her old home town of Draper in Wisconsin. Maynard Anderson is new in the logging business with his chum Leonard Stewart. They are now the owners of Potlatch Forests Inc. after working there for thirty years. Virginia Robinson finally made it through college and after quite a few years of teaching school in different places, she fin- ally get the position of Superintendent of the Pierce High School. Robert Bacon and Cole Waldemar are partners in a very good car selling business in Lewiston and are doing very good for theme selves, Janice Ball is the head waitress at the Pierce Cafe and she is married now. nwell, thank you, Jack,n I said, WI enjoyed my visit with you very much. It's been fun reminiscing over the past years, and I hope to see you again.' nwait a minute, Glariee,N he said, Nyou haven't told me what you are doing yet.n WOh, I'm married now and living in Pierce,W I told him, as I waved goodby from my car and drove towards home, ....J June Knapton ,,,..

S I, Cole Waldemar, do hereby bequeath my ability to make ex- cuses for skipping school to anyone who can use it. SPRING BREAK-UP Another school year has almost gone! Once again it is time to clean out lockers, files and desks, discard old papers and keep my best work of the year, Perhaps it would be a good time to clean out my department in the art room and do the same for my box in the homemaking room, What a conglomeration of art material! Scraps from almost every craft we tried during the year! A few small rocks and bits of dyed weeds left from my ming tree, CRemenber what fun we had making them? No two were the same and there were no complete fail- ures,l Herefs a small copper plaque I must mount---almost forgot it wesnft finished. We made so many plaques this year and then when we were given a set of transparent metal lacquers the craft took on new life and we all tried for the new effects. Here are a few scraps of leather, and my book mark sampler. Leather craft did not dominate this year as it had the last three, although Dar- rel Frazier made a beautiful ladies handbag the first semester, not to mention several ammunition belts and a gun holster. Some of the other students made belts, photo albums, coin purses and of course the usual popular bill folds. What's this b ight glittering stuff? istmas nwhy of course, bits from the time. Remember how Laura Mae glitter birds we made at Chr- Stroud turned them out by the dozen? Her nimble fingers made more than all the rest of us com- bined. Here's a small broken shell-a reminder of the shell pin and ear ring sets we made. Guess I'll throw this old plaster paris plaque away. It was one that turned out badly, and I made a bet- ter one later, Even with the rubber molds we made ourselves the plaques were not always perfect especially if the plaster was not of the right consistency. Most of these scraps are from the paper flowers we made of duplex crepe, The results were usually better than we expected. Guess I'll keep these pieces of cork from my hot dish mats--they might come in handy for novelty pins. Here are even a few bits of dried clay. My fingersawere not especially clever with modeling clay or carving those tiny vases fron tene Oh well, I found enough to do anyway. If time hangs heavy on my hands before the last days of school, I'll try braiding a rug or perhaps making a vase with a frosty finish. Right now, I'm won- dering about that muddle of material in my home-making box down- stairs. JUNIOR GLASS HISTORY In 1947, twelve young lads and lasses entered the Pierce High School as Freshman: Lois Lang, Betty Jo Gardner, Doleris Carlson, Robert Hohnstein, Albert Hansen, Reba Kinard, Patricia Tondevold, Merriam Lepka, Darlene Gerrard, Delores Stacy, Bobby Brown, Bobby Stroud, Ann Orava, and Patsy Donohue. we were subjected to the usual treatment by the Sophonores to initiate us into the ranks of the Student Body. They gave us a party after the initiation so all was forgiven. About two weeks later we gave them a return party and also invited the Juniors and the Seniors. Our Sophomore year brought back all of our old classmates and added Ann Orava from Orofino, Darlene Gerrard from Ashton, and Syneva Lands from Orofino. Syneva later left us, making 15 in the class. we got ou revenge by ititiating in the new fresh. " At the first of the yean everybody of last years class turned' up, but at the present there is only five Juniors. Bobby Stroud is the President, Robert Brown is Vice-President, Lois Lang is our SecretarybTreasurerg and Robert Hohnstein is the Student Council Representative for the Junior Glass, Patsy Donohue is the other Junior. we made a little money this year by serving refreshments at a turkey shoot, and at a basketball game. We also later put on a movie, we have already put on the traditional Junior-Senior Banquet, and it was very nice. The Junior Prem is yet to come, at the time that this article is being written, and the plans are, as yet, rather indefinite. The Senior Class hasn't tried to put up their letter or go on their sneak yet, but even if our class is small, wefll do all in our power to stop them, Yes, we have had a very successful school year of it this year and we only hope that our coming Senior year will be just as suc- cessful. , Oh, yes, we'd better give credit where it is due---our class advisor this year was Mr. Burns. Thanks a lot, Coach!

Carnivaln, The fact that we were the first class to defeat the seniors in such a contest, made us feel very proud indeed! To increase our treasury, we gave several parties, sold pop at some of the home basketball games and sponsored a movier As a class, we consider ourselves in good standing and look forward to two more plentiful and happy years at P.H.S.

Jennette McArthur was the prompter. In the past school year, the Freshman Class sold Green and Gold nPepU hats that aroused quite a bit of good school spirit, that was badly needed, indeed, Our very helpful class advisor for the past year has been Mr. Galvin. we are glad that we have finished our very first year of high school with such ease and accomplishment, and we are also looking forward very eagerly to our Sophomore year, which we hope will be just as successful.

Each class ran several concessions and had charge of decorating and operating their own booths. Each booth had different gay colors which made a very festive effect, As in former years, we had a Carnival Queen contest, For variety, a King candidate from each class ran with the Queen candidate of that particular class. The Carnival Queen and King candidates were: Clarice Johnson and Cole WaldomarCSoniors7g Patsy Donohue and Bob Brown fJ'l1I1lO1'S,3 Mary Wurdolla and Robert Richel CSoph- omoreslg Lois Dryden and Larry Fry Glroslmenlg and Billie Jean Calhoun and Jimmy Richel for-ada Schooll. After the contest was closed, and the votes were all counted, Mr. Hunt announced that the Sophomore candidates, Mary Wurdella and Robert Richel had ibn, Robert Bacon, the Student Body President, crowned the winners as "King and Queen of the Pierce High School Carnival for l9L9." This was the first time in P, H. S.'s history that any olds! had ever defeated the Seniors in such a contest. After the crowning was over, the drawings were made for an electric mixer, two wool blankets, and an electric blanket, which we had sold as raffles. Over fou hundred dollars profit was cleared on our school carni- val this year, which made it an overwhelming success, Our school gym was absolutely packed, And so, we are looking forward to our school carnival of 1950 and we hope that it will be as good and successful as the one for 1949 was, SPRLEG ER3AKeUPww--E-Continued Here's the box with ny name on the end. Before I can get to the well stuffed inside I'l1 have to remove the stack of booklets, recipes and test papers on top. Then Ifll dump the box on a table and start with the material gathered at the first of the year. Here are my canning booklets--perhaps I'll use them this sumrmrg next my stitch and seam samplets-what a time my poor fin- gers had with themg then my apron, all done by hand,if you please, and not bad for a beginner, if I do say se. My dress was next, but it's not here in the box. I've been wearing it for some time and you can judge for yourself. Of course, I had to learn to use the machine first and we studied patterns and cutting before we could make a dress. we were glad to change from sewing to baking --especially since each cooking group had a new set of baking dishes and a nice new electric range. We had fun exploring the mysteries of baking biscuits, muffins, cakes, cookies, and pie recipes that I know I'll be using after school is out, My booklets on good grooming as well as shampoo samples have been taken home, but here are the pamphlets containing washing instructions and stein removal directions that went with our good grooming unit. And here's all my leaflets on nutrition and meal planning--guess Ifll keep them although I don't believe I can ever forget the nBasic Seven.' These tables for vegetable cookery will come in handy and here are my test papers for meat cuts and meat cookery. These canned food booklets will be worth saving, They tell how to use canned foods in so many different ways. And of course my book- lets on desserts,' This sizable scrap book was my semester project. I got an A on it, too, I took interior decorating for my theme and found some wonderful ideas for every room in the house. And my booklet on silverware and table service will be tucked away to be used later, I still sigh over that gorgeous sterling flatware we had the use of last fall, Perhaps some day-that reminds me- some of us helped serve the Junior-Senior banquet this year and it was quite easy after we learned how in class. we practically cook- ed the dinner for the play cast from N.I.C.E, Iive been told the advanced class in homemaking have covered much the sane subjects as we, except in a mo e detailed way. In addition they have stud- ied reupholstering and recovering furniture--rebuilding a set of davenport and chair cushions for the community club, They also made our kitchen curtains and decorated household linens with texa tile paints. What a busy year it has been, but even so, I did not realize we had accomplished so many things.

Hopes were high for the team when six lettermen returned from last years team: They were: Louie Larson, Cole Waldemar, Leonard Stewart, Darrel Frazie , Robert Bacon and Bobby Brown. New members were as follows: Bobby Pollock, Jack Moscrip, Robert Knight, Ronnie McFadden, Bobby Stroud, Noel Williams, Pat Fidler, Keith Vaughan and Robert Richel.

They were: Reba Kinard, Dora Kinard, and Anita Stewart. They did very well during our 1949 football season. They really cheered and lead the crowds in peping the boys up, They were there at all of our home games. But even before basketball season stepped around, two of our Yell Queens get married and left us. They were Reba Kinard and her sister, Dora Kinerd, When the basketball season came around, we added two new Yell Queens, They were Joanne Cleveland and Adele Waldemar. And then, all through our basketball season, there they were--always leading the crowds in yells and cheering the boys, Anita, Joanne, and Adele did a splendid job of being Pierce High Schoolfs 1950 Yell Queen.

There weren't very many students enrolled in Band during the first part of the year, but as time went along we picked up more and more members. Most of the new members came from our grade school. Mr. Hunt, Pierce High School's music director, started quite a few grade pupils in a Eeginner's Band, and it wasn't very long before they were with the rest of us. There were approx- imately twenty-five members in the band. Adele Naldemar was the leaiing majoretne. The other majorettes were: Joyce Flodberg, Marcellene Holt, Sally Barnes, and Lois Dickinson. The flag hear- ers were Janice Pall and Patsy Donohue. The membership in Chorus ft the besinning of the year was practically nil. Put, as the year proqressed, the Chorus depart- ment picked up members like the Band department did. It gained a few boy members in addition to the girl members. It, too, was under the direction of Mr. Hunt. During the latter part of the year, both the Band and the Chorus went on two music festivals. First, there was the Prairie Music Festival held at Grangeville on March 25. Then, there was the Lewiston Music Festival held at Lewiston on April 29. The Pierce Hilh School made a good showing at both of these music fes- tivals and received high ratings. de were considered especially good in our marching. The hind and chorus from Pierce also par ticipated in Mass Chorus and Mass Band at both music festivals. . isa' fl 'S " F33 ' ' S A Q L' wir-fun, HUF Pfht J Ki" " N ' . 4' v 5' Jew emi Q Goo D ' A R CAD HUF! f. 0 X' ff, gpyil gqdlwuf ur: L" P"'fv-nb ' gf - 'F '?'f:, ' Q -','-+6 :fc 'R' WHA1, Fun 11 LM FY-0.SiVl SN 1 041+ Fel' H K 3 iii' A Vikil Wh ' ' fmgp uv ,f Juvlf- ' X W 44 A Q , , 5' ' W , Ga' .- ,?'f!-fi Ra licvf DHKR LUCKY '-60 9 . x ID 4 ki W A 'x "' 7 4' pon ri 5 A1 0 W., imap:-lQ13'lTw gpEi.E Q ,Q...Q39 7 ' pwxcfeaff kfefrff: j'1uvn0l1 B 6 1 DO YGU PH-LE'-'EEEZRT The first day of school and the timid new nFroshU---when so many girls get married and quit school-M-umThe crowning of King and Queen at the Carnival and how proud the Sophomores were ---- -Some of the funny costumed characters that appeared at the Freshman Hallowefen Partye---When school was closed because of snow and cold weather----How the girls swooned and raved about the cute accordion player that was at a national assemblies program---- When so many of the Junior Class members quit school until there were only five left--N-How much fun everyone had at the Senior Ballfeveryone, that is, except the Seniors themselves who went in the holel---Jock Johnsonfs pretty pastel colored nylon shirts and dark colored harmonizing cords----Meryls giggles----Toots' romance with a college boy----Claricefs diamond ----- when Bob and Adele started going steady---The school play and big dance after- wards----The Cole-Anita-Leis triangle---Semester exams---The Sophomore parties----The Junior Promf---Midge's crush on Chuck Brown----The basketball trips and serdine snacks-----The trouble the paper steff had in issuing e good paper---4Remember when Bob Richel set with Marlene in Letter Boys' Initiation---Patsy fell down in the street in Kamiah and get the spotlight turned on her- ---Jeck and Midge's secret romance---4How the boys razzed the girls when they get their cute green hats---Graduation exercises.

Members of the cast included: Jack Johnson as the Great Ben Allahg Cole Waldomar as Ed Westeng Adele Waldemar as Ruth Aldrich, Lois Dryden as Mrs. Aldrich, Virginia Robinson as Roberta Houstong Marlene Minden as Helen Johnson, Mary Wurdella as Mrs. Shyler van Shulerg Laurella Frazier as Dorothy, the maid, Jack Mescrip as Hawkins, the butler, and Louie Larson as Randolph Rawlings. Other participants wore: Jennette McArthur, pronpterg Laura Mae Stroud, make-upg Glarice Johnson and Joanne Cleveland, tickets and box officog Bob Bacon, Bobby Pollock and Ronald Adams, stage crewg and Patsy Donohue, Anita Stewart, Marlene Starr, and Lois Lang, advertising. WThe Great Ben Allahu is a very amusing and interesting play which revolves around Mrs.Aldrich, a hobby maniac for spiritualism who refuses to let her daughter, Ruth Aldrich, seo the man she loves because he is not a sriritualism, A plan is made by the very understanding and dear aunt of Ruth's--Roberta Houston, They de- cide that the only possible way for Ruth to see Ben is to have him pose as a Hindu spiritualist, He is aided by his pal, Ed Weston, who has his oyc on Helen Johnson, a friend of Ruth's, who is in on the plot, too. Mrs, Aldrich falls for the tricks played on her, but Mrs. van Shuler, her more skeptical friend, becomes very sus- picifms of them, Everything seems to go pretty smooth until The Great Ben Allah, pretending to hypnotize the butler and maid,finds to his amazement that he really has hypnotized them and can not break the spell. Professor Randolph Rawlings, an old flame of Reberta's, cones to the rescue and breaks the spells, Everything ends fine with Ben and Ruth, Randolph and Roberta,and Ed and Helen all altar hound. Mrs. Aldrich, after a terrible ordeal, is through with spiritualisn, but--not with hobbies! Mrs. van Shuler rushes in to tell of a wonderful auction sale on antique bathtubs, which both of them take up for a new hobby. Mrs. Pearl Dundas, high school speech instructor, was presen- ted with a dozen red roses at curtain call, on behalf of the cast in their appreciation for the time and effort of which she ably directed another successful play for P.
