One objective of a scrapbook is to bring back memories. Vile sincerely hope that our "scrapbook" has fulfilled that objective. PAGE TWO Qeallccitloifi To Superintendent Harland H. Hanson, whose keen interest in all school activities has lead to the realization of a new auditorium-gymnasium for our school, we, the Class of '50, dedicate this yearbook. He has helped to make our school an efficient institution whose objective is better education for the graduates of tomorrow. We know he will continue the good work. PAGE THREE Seated Left to Right-J.

The omfal of Ealificoitiom Pictured above are the people responsible for the "character" of Hol- stein Public School. When any problems confront them, and there are many, they alone make the decisions. Past decisions have taken a course by which the school and the community of Holstein have benefited the most. The responsibility placed on these people is great, for they mold the future of the students of this school. The people of Holstein can be proud that they have this capable group who are willing to give so generously ot their time so that we may have a schqool whose "character" is good. PAGE SIX MR.

CLASS FLOWER CLASS COLORS White Rose Maroon and White CLASS MOTTO I "Out of the quiet harbor, into the billowing sea" PAGE FIFTEEN Glass History Dear Diary: SEPTEMBER l937 ..... This week we went to school for the first time. Already we have learned to sit still, hang up and put away things, and to obey. Miss Keene has told us that we will also learn to print and read this year .... OCTOBER l938 .... Entered the new building and like it fine. With the aid of Miss Gray we are brushing up on our printing and on our reading. She has also given us new readers. We have desks this year ..... NOVEMBER l939 . . . And across the hall to the second grade where we are under the careful guidance of Miss Glor- feld. Subtraction is new to us, but we are learning ..... DECEMBER l94O . . . Back to the old building again and with the help of Miss Manteufel we are learning how to write. This will be a great accomplishment. . .JANUARY l94l . . . School is getting harder. We have six-weeks tests now and also home assignments. Mrs. Steig Porter is our leader .... FEBRUARY l942 . . . . Miss Carstens met us in the fall and introduced us to long division and lowa History. Here we received our first experience of different classes taught by different teachers. Lyle Munz and Louise Scherner joined our class .... MARCH l943 . . . Back in the new building to stay. lt's been an interesting year. Judee Bagenstos entered our ranks and also received in- structions with us from Miss Kitchen, our leader . . . SEPTEMBER l944 and SEPTEMBER l945 . . . . Junior High at last. Here Miss Johnson and Miss Perry guided us through seventh grade and Miss Herzberg and Miss Zell through eighth grade. These were happy days for here we had our first taste of athletics, plays, operettas, and study halls-A preview of high school. LaVaughn Lill, Harold Arp, Orville Miller, Darlean Bremer, and Shirley Wiese joined us this year ..... JANUARY l947 .... This year was to be a great year. We were recipients of the traditional initiation along with Frank Sokolowski, Howard Dittmer, Eugene Gehrts, Robert Hintz, Wendell Kastner, John Rochau, Phyllis Bergmann, Duane Ruhser and Dean Earnest, who came from rural schools to further their knowledge in HHS. We had much to learn in the next four years, and here we found out you learn as much as you want and mostly on your own .... SEPTEMBER l948 . . . Back again to school. This year we felt somewhat superior as we looked at the green freshmen, but we remembered that we were freshmen once too ..... MAY i949 .... Juniors at last. To add to our income we worked hard selling magazines. While at our games, we peddled food of all kinds to earn enough to put on a swell prom with the theme LUXURY LINER, where we danced till the wee hours of the morn to the dreamy music of Bob Calame. So far this was the evening of evenings in our lives. We worked hard to put on our play, "Shoot the Works" early in the fall. After the first semester we picked our class rings and received them early in May . . . . SEPTEMBER l949 . . . . . This month we have registered for school for the last time. And we have with us a new member, Florence Bumann, making us a class of 27. Of those who registered in l937, only 8 remained with the class through these l3 years. They are William Bienlien, Joan Carnes, Maxine Hansohn, Donna Jensen, Jeanne Kolb, Delaine Lemke, James Sindt, and Betty Bremer. All of us are looking forward to the production of the MOO, skip day, and graduation. Up to and through this our lives have been well-planned and prepared for us. Soon we shall each be keeping our own diary, each one with his own adventures, joys and sorrows, successes and disappointments. We shall always remember our school days, our teachers, our friends, and our activities. We are going out ,into a world where some will lead and some will follow, but all will advance. PAGE SIXTEEN Glass Will We, The Class of '50 of the Holstein High School, of the City of Holstein, County of Ida, and State of Iowa, in twenty-seven separate parts, each being of sound mind and overflowing with knowledge, a nervous system run down from endless hair-breadth escapes, and wit sharpened through dire necessity, being about to pass out of this world of education, do hereby make, publish and declare this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills, bequests, and devises of whatever nature made by us.

They placed five boys on the football team and three on the regular bCISl4eTbGll team. They 'l'1OVe also been GH lrlfegral part of a fine girls' basketball team, with three first string regulars to their credit. 'As has been the case in the fall, the juniors were privileged to sell magazines in an effort to se- cure money to finance the Junior-Senior Prom. They realized a net profit of some 5740, which is the largest amount ever earned by any class in Holstein High School. Along with this magazine pro- ject, the juniors also handled the concessions at our football and basketball games. On November l6, the juniors presented a very successful three-act comedy called, "Saved By the Belle", under the direction of Miss Harriett Baker. The play meant lots of hard work, but lots of fun and pleasant memories, too. The last big event of the year was the annual Junior-Senior Prom, where the juniors gave their guests, the seniors, faculty, and the school board, an evening of pleasure and enjoyment, the last of its kind to be staged in the old school gym.

Sopliomoifes The Sophomores organized in the tall under the leadership of Mrs. Jatho, choosing for their class officers-Shirley Dauigaard, President, William Agnew, Vice-President, Harold McDermott, Secretary-Treasurer. Their curriculum this year gave them a wider selection of subjects and an oppor- tunity to search out new paths of learning. The first week ot school found them partici- pating in the following classes: English, world history, biology, advanced algebra, business training, and speech. Almost the entire class of 28 took part in the athletic program of the school, while the success of the band, glee clubs, pep club, and The Hilarity may be traced in part to the loyalty of the sophomore members. All in all, our school is proud of its lOth graders and will be happy to welcome them as next year's juniors. SPONSORED BY THE FARMERS' ELEVATOR CO.

Although this year's freshmen were not smeared with cosmetics, they were still very dis- tinguished by the costumes they wore. Departing from tradition, the seniors decided to let the freshmen do the work for once, and the freshies gave the whole high school a big "feed" in the city park. The food was solicited from the people of Holstein and what a "feed" it was. Later the freshmen were guests of the seniors at the annual dance, held especially to help them feel formally initiated into high schoolroutine. The freshmen have participated actively in athletic events and were runnerups in the lda County Junior High Boys' Basketball Tournament. lt's the good-natured freshmen that helps keep the school spirit alive.

' PAGE TWENTY-EIGHT SPONSORED BY VOLLMAR'S SUPER SERVICE AND DOWNS AND DIERSEN JUNIOR HIGH The achievements of the junior high were very noticeable this year, not only because of their very good athletic season, but also a very fine academic year. The junior high football team won two of six games. The boys' basketball team won twelve of their nineteen games and were runner up to Odebolt in the Maple Valley Basketball Tournament. Noon-hour basket- ball games also were enjoyed throughout the winter and one of the highlights of this program was a win over the freshman team. The junior high girl's team played ten games, winning five. Holstein grabbed top honors at the Ida County Spelling Contest by placing Martin Lohff, Shirley Michaelsen, and Jerry Jean Cole in first, second, and third places res- pectively. A number of junior high stu- dents participated in band. Truly, they are quite capable of entering into their senior education at Hol- . T stein High. FOOTBALL Front Row-R. Schuett, G. Breyfogle, V.

Danbury wins the open mile at Holstein Relays The Pirate cindermen collected a total of 3 and one fifth points in the Holstein Relays through the efforts of the two mile relay team CEndrulat-Ehler-Agnew-Schubertl, which placed fifth, and Rickard, who tied with four other jumpers for third, fourth, and fifth place in the high jump. At the Pocahontas meet, which was held April 21, Holstein garnered 3h points. Rickard tied for fourth in the high-jump with several other entries, while Ehler placed fourth in the broad jump. The Tomahawk Relays, held on April 22, at Cherokee, was a class "A" meet and the "B" relays did not count in the scoring. Holstein placed fourth in the 880-yard relay fWiese-Bienlien-Rickard-Fahanl, sec- ond in the mile relay tFahan-Arp-Ehler-Bienlienl, and fifth in the football throw. Ruhser and Kastner have been throwing the shot, but as yet haven't placed. The Ida County Meet, an annual affair on the Holstein track, was postponed from April 25 to May l0 because of bad weather. The boys are expected to improve as the season progresses and should give a good account of them- selves in the local meets and the "B" meets coming up.

'lhe season's record tallied lO wins to 3 defeats in the regular sched- uled games. TOURNAMENT PLAY The Piratettes came out on top in the first round of the Maple Valley Tournament at Battle Creek with a win over Arthur by a score of 59-38. The next night gave them a glorious win Over Galva by a thrilling score of 43-4l, and brought home their first trophy of the season. They then journeyed to Kingsley to take part in the Sectional Tournament. Again they came out on top by defeating Grand Meadow, C'ViIle and in the finals, Kingsley. This made a second trophy for them and a trip to the District Tournament where Holstein had not been represented since l946. Holstein fell to the powerful Charter Oak sextet in the first round but came back and took Consolation honors by defeating Sloan in the finals. That made a third trophy for the Piratettes. A fourth was added when they received the Maple Valley Conference trophy, having won the highest percentage of games in the Maple Valley Con- ference during the season. With the accurate shooting of Joan Broderson, Doris Breyfogle, Jean Kolb, and Patsy Ellerbusch and the powerful defensive work of La Vaughn Lill, Evelyn Gebers and Louise Scherner, the Piratettes had a grand total of lo wins and 4 losses to end a very successful season of fine play. The average number of points netted per game was 54.

Under the direction of Mrs. Kuchel, the Girls' Chorus reorganized this year into two groups, one group composed of seniors and juniors, and the other of sophomores and fresh- men. From these two groups thirty-two were chosen as the chorus group to enter the Pre-State contest at Sutherland on April l5, l95O. Although they were hampered by the fact that they had few practices together, the chorus still turned in a creditable performance and received a Division ll rating. The songs chosen by the group were "But The Lord" and "Swiss Skiing Song." These songs were also presented at the Spring Concert. After the Spring Contest a mixed chorus was formed by combining selected voices from the boys' and girls' choruses. This group presented selections at Baccalaureate services.

Donna Lu Con- over, Zoe Ann McCubbin, Patsy Ellerbusch, and Joan Broclersen were chosen as regular cheerleaders, and Donna Jensen and Shirley Daugaard were selected as alternates. The Pep Club's chief aims were to arouse greater interest and better loyalty in support of athletic contests, To promote this, the club sponsored pep meetings preliminary to all home games. Highlights of the clu'o's activities were the sponsoring of homecoming activities in the fall and activities of the spring track meets. During the year the Pep Club purchased new cheerleading outfits for the Cheerleaders and sold Black Pirate pencils. MAJORETTES CHEERLEADERS ' J. Brodersen, Jean Kolb, Janet Kolb, S. Daugaard, M.

JUNIOR CLASS PLAY SAVED BY THE BELLE The setting is the den of the Aurora Sorority House at Stonehall College for Women. The central character, Rita Powers, is an orphan who has been kept in school through the gener- osity of her almost mythical Uncle Henry, who lives in New York and whom she rarely sees. When Uncle Henry passes on, Rita discovers he was far from the millionaire she had supposed him to be, and it looks as though she would have to forgo the balance of her ed- ucation and leave school. But Uncle Henry has left Rita one bequest, and this "bequest" turns up at the sorority house in the person of Jackie Clark, a young contender for the mid- dle-weight championship, who is accompanied by his trainer, Slugger O'Day. Uncle Henry has left his fifty percent interest in Jackie to Rita, but since both Jackie and Slugger are penniless, the girls have to put them up in the garage while they train for their next fight. To explain the presence to Mrs. Fish, the house mother, they are introduced as dancing teachers-with highly omusing consequences. But Warren Sands, a young reporter enamored of Rita, learns that the girls are hiding Jackie and Slugger, and threatens to expose them in his paper. To prevent this, the girls kidnap Warren and hold him captive in the house. From here on out complications really piled up, but of course they were overcome and all ended happily.

J u d ee Bogenstos Lovice and Kenneth McLaurin stand to lose a fortune if Lovice's Aunt Tabitha and Ken's Uncle Sappington, who are the bitterest of enemies, learn of their secret marriage. Lovice writes her aunt that she has married an imaginary Thornas Mack, and Ken writes his uncle that he has married a gal named Susie Jones. Immediately Uncle Sappy wires that he is on his way to see the bride. Ignorant of the fact that Lovice has induced her bosom friend, Fran to play the part of his wife, Ken procures the services of Rosita, a flaming actress, while Ken's pal, Russ, an amateur hypnotist, hypnotizes the cook, leaving her under the delusion that she is Ken's lawful bride. When Uncle Sappy arrives and finds three wives, he thinks his nephew has started a harem. When Aunt Tabby suddenly enters, consternation reigns supreme. Lov- ice has her aunt hypnotized as a Greek statue to keep her away from any possible meeting with the hated Sappington. The twin Negro servants, Pernicious and Anemia, seeing her lying under a sheet, think she is a "corpse." When Aunt Tabby suddenly rises and poses as "The Flying Mercury," the terrified darkies do some flying on their own account. The play rollicks at a galloping pace to a riotous climax, in which the two old enemies are brought together in a surprising manner and all is forgiven. SPONSORED BY C. E. CONOVER PAGE FIFTY NINE C The 7 Q prom "The Junior-Senior Prom! Here at lastl" This was a night to remember. On May 9, T949, the "USS Lux- ury Liner" departed tor the land ot dreamy music with Bob Calame and his orchestra. When our voyage had reached the mid way mark, we stopped dancing to crown the king and queen and award the door prizes. Lyle Leinbaugh was crowned king and Vonita Bumannn queen. The door prizes, two table model radios, were won by Mrs. Bernice Kuchel and Mr. Ray Bagenstos. Dancing continued, with refreshments and lounging in the hall on the side, whichever the choice might be. About ll:3O, we reached our destintation, and the ship dropped anchor. The gangplank was lowered and we de- parted leaving behind a night of perfect memories. PAGE SIXTY SPONSORED BY THE GALVA RENDERING CO SPONSORED BY CHUCK'S BODY SHOP AND THE MCGUIRE AUCTION CO, PAGE 5'XTY'ONE .gl Holvo CDW September 20, i949 Hobo Day, a break from the traditional initiation, proved to be a great success. Each freshman made a designated senior a paddle according to senior specifications. The day previous to the event the freshies canvassed the town begging for food. At noon the freshmen were transported down town in a cage-like corn crib and pulled by a tractor. They made a colorful scene, each dressed to "out hobo" each other. Upon reaching the Main Square, the hobo contestants were welcomed by a committee of townsmen, and given a key to the city. Then they paraded before the judges stand where Queen Flor- ence Kruse and King Jim Lenz were chosen as the outstanding hobos. After the coronation each senior was presented with a paddle. Following several races, in which seniors were escorted by freshies, all the high school students were invited to the park for the "feed" furnished by the freshmen hobos. The "feed" consisted ot the loot of the previous day: beans, sandwiches, potato chips, canned goods of all descriptions, cookies, cakes, and dozens of other items. At 7:30, the seniors were hosts at the traditional dance where stunts were performed by the class of l953. All in all, Hobo Day turned out to be a great day and thus the class of '53 truly became a part ot Holstein High. SPONSORED BY THE HOLSTEIN STATE BANK '--- ---- '-W"-ri'--fr r' - M - - omecoming Oct. 7, l949 The night was a typical October evening and a big event for Holstein. lt was Oct. 7, l949, and Homecoming. At the half of the Onawa game, Queen Jeanne Kolb, King Lyle Munz and their attendants, Shirley Wiese, LaVaughn Lill, Wendell Kastner and James Sindt were feted at a colorful coronation. The Queen received a dozen red roses and her attendants each received a cor- sage. To make the evening perfect for Homecoming fans, the Pirates won a tough l8-l4 game over the traditional rivals from Onawa, while the queen along with her fair attendants viewed the contest from her dais on the sidelines. January l5, l95O Cherokee, 'Iowa On this day the sociology class and the seniors traveled to Cherokee by bus to visit the State Hospital for the Insane. Coach Kraai had made arrangements before hand so that a planned tour was scheduled for us that morning. First, we were taken to the auditorium where our host talked with us about the causes of mental illness and the general nature of the institution. We toured the kitchen, the laundry, the recreation room, the heating plant, and the hypo, the place where violent patients are kept. lt was an interesting tour and many of us were surprised to find how self-sufficient an institution of this type with its large number ot employees and patients really is.

' October I5, I949 Ames, Iowa Our group of twenty-six football boys left Holstein at 6:45, arriving in Ames at l2:30. Before game time, we drove around and looked at the sorority and fraternity displays dec- orating the lawns. At l:0O, we obtained tickets to see the game between Iowa State and Kansas State at Clyde Williams Field. It proved to be a real thriller and a perfect Home- coming for Iowa State, as they edged Kansas State 25-21. March, 4, I95O Des Moines, Iowa The girls' basketball "A" squad left for Des Moines at 6 o'clock to see the state tournament and arrived here about 9:30. The time between our arrival and dinner was spent shopping and sightseeing. Part of our afternoon was also spent up town. At 4:00 we left our hotel for the fieldhouse. We had a time trying to push ourselves inside the Drake field- house, however the games were certainly worth watching. In the consolation round Winterset took Mallard and in the final round Slater beat Kamrar for the I95O title. March 24-25, l95O Iowa City, Iowa The boys' basketball "A" squad left Holstein on Friday about 7:l5 and arrived in Iowa City about 2 o'clock in the afternoon. We went immediately to the fieldhouse to see about sleeping arrangements and toured the downtown area. Friday night we saw the Ankeny -Winfield game and the Dinsdale-Davenport tilt, with Ankeny and Davenport emerging as the winners. Saturday we looked the city over, returning to the fieldhouse early to see the consolation and final rounds of the tournament. That night Winfield took Dinsdale while Davenport trampled Ankeny for the state title.

PAGE SEVENTY-FOUR if The ffualitoifmm-gymnasium The picture above was taken before spring construction had started on our new auditorium-gymnasium building. Since then a network of steel beams has been hoisted into place and the general shape of the building can now be seen. Early last fall the furnace room had been excavated, ,and the foundations and part of the stage completed. At present, the work is concentrated on the steel framework. The Edson Construction Company of Storm Lake is the contractor. A Plans have also been completed for the remodeling of our high school building as the new addition will allow more classroom space, a hot lunch program complete with modern kitchen space, and more room for our music department. The new structure, which will provide Holstein with some of the best gym facilities in Northwest Iowa, is expected to reap a good share of the local tournaments as well as some of the larger ones. Seating capacity will be around fifteen hundred. Everyone is looking forward to the day of com- p etion. PAGE SEVENTY-FIVE Ah! So you have finally reached the last page?
