foreword . . .
Here is your book. Long hours have been spent to make it a memorial
that you will treasure all your life. Through these pages we have tried to
show you the life of Holstein Public School.
Not only have we tried to show you the extracurricular activities, such
as dances, sports, and organizations, but also we have attempted to show
you the curricular side as well, through actual classroom pictures.
We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all persons who,
in some way, helped to make this one of the most outstanding years in the
history of our school.
To our graduating seniors, we extend our best wishes and hope the work
they have done here will prove to be of value as they take their next step.
We hope you enjoy the MlVlOO,' as much as we enjoyed publishing it.
It was ours for almost a year. Now it belongs to you.

EACH TYPICAL school day calls upon the time and effort of the above group.
This library staff under the direction of Miss Stoner is in charge of some 2800
books, which they shelve, arrange, dust, mend, charge out, check in, collect the
overdues on, and keep in order at all times. Besides these fiction and reference books,
our library has available to each student seven sets of encyclopedias, and many
other reference volumes. Also on our shelves are found such prominent magazines
as LIFE, LOOK, READER,S DIGEST, AMERICAN, THE NATIONAL GEO-
GRAPHIC, POPULAR MECHANICS, POPULAR SCIENCE, and many others.
No day passes without someone asking to be directed to a certain section of the
library, a particular reference book, or a good story. These librarians are there to

This year's HI-LARITY STAFF organized early in the fall under the guiding
hand of Mrs. Christie. The expressed hope of the group was to edit a paper which
would be of interest to everyone . . . After assignments were made, the business man-
ager with the circulation and subscription groups sold ads and subscriptions to finance
the paper . . . Hi-Larity went to press sixteen times this year. Special issues were
printed at Christmas and for senior graduation. The editing staff found publishing
the paper a full time job. Assignments had to be given and articles written to meet
our deadlines. Typists, fingers flew on the days when that uunreadablew penciled
copy had to be deciphered.
Seeing oneis own article in headlines was a terrifying reward for the effort and
time spent in composition.

music created by a group of students who have worked and worked hard for long
hours. They have practiced and marched and braved all kinds of weather to perform
out on the football field for their school and team. They have practiced and practiced
to please the home folks with the third annual POPS CONCERT. And then they
have struggled and practiced some more to strut their stuff at the 1955 Music
No little credit goes to Band Conductor Harold Halvorsen who has helped make a
fine Holstein High School Band.

AGAIN THIS YEAR we had a fine representation of the student body in the
vocal music department. With three fine mixed groups, the girls' sextet, the boys'
octet, the mixed quartet, and ten soloists warming up consistently, lots of harmony,
skill, and entertainment came out of 'gthis old housef' Along with these small groups
the two glee clubs and the mixed chorus tuned up regularly and with zesto. One of
the music highlights of the year was the impressive Christmas program, featuring
literally hundreds of singers in a fine program. After Christmas attention was cen-
tered on the preparations for the annual spring music contests.

The Black Pirates of Holstein High came through a
very successful season of rockim-sockim football. ,lust as
all teams do, we had our ups and downs, our triumphs
and our failures. After the season ended, we wished we
might have played three of the games over, but one can-
not do that. After five wins against three losses, the final
wind-up came with a smashing victory over Odebolt, giv-

The PIRATETTES, consolation winners of last year, with all the poise and grace
of true veterans came through the season with twenty-six straight wins to reach the
state finals in Des Moines March 1-5. At Des Moines they won the first three rounds
by knocking off district champions, Oakland, Eldora, and Royal, but lost to district
champion, Goldfield, in an overtime. ln the thirty games played during the 1954-55
season, the Holstein Runner-up Champions scored 2056 points while their opponents
counted 1127. As a team they averaged less than twelve fouls per game. To the
outstanding sextet of Iowa-Lois, Jerri Jean, Mary lane, Nancy, Shirley, and Verna
we extend congratulations for a wonderful record and a job well done.

Homecoming festivities began on the cool and windy night of October 14. A parade-
consisting of the Saddle Club, Band, Class Floats, and the Royalty Float-paraded
through town and terminated at the gym where the coronation program took place.
The seniors presented a take-off on Macbeth with the three witches and their magic
cauldron, the juniors, "A Wedding of Holstein and Victory"g the sophomores, "The Hol-
stein Machine"g and the freshmen, "Jarrin' Jack Jackson."
Then came the highlight and the most breathtaking event of the evening - the corona-
tion. Thirty high school girls in blue robes carrying lighted candles formed an aisle for
the royalty to the stage which was decorated as an autumn scene. A spotlight caught each
couple as they proceeded up the aisle while the boys, glee club gave the final touch to
the impressive occasion by singing "Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland."
The attending couples. Nancy Janssen and Kenny Kruse. and Jane Leonard and Jim
Clausen were crowned by Miss Stoner. The girls were presented with mum vorsages and
the boys with boutonnieres. Then Queen Jerri and King Charles were crowned by Mr.
Christie and took their respective places where Jerri'received a bouquet of red roses and
Charles a carnation boutonniere.
The climaxing event, held outside, was the burning of C'ville's effigy and the serving
of cocoa and apples to the student body.

of confusion after meeting up with Horatius Xenophon Hooley. By using Grampis
money, they tried to obtain a patent on Hooley's rat trap only to be interrupted by
Mrs, Morton's social friends and her relatives. The disappearing of numerous items,
including jewelry, money, and Aunt Polly's menthol tube, added to the excitement
and comedy of the play. Mrs. Christieis hard work paid off in the fine evening of

AS A FRESHIE TOLD IT
The highlight for the ufreshiesv this year was the September 4-th initiation day.
The girls came dressed as Pappy Yokum and the boys as Mammy Yokum. An all-high
school dance followed a day of excitement under the rule of the mighty potentates,
Freshmen in ,55 were active in many high school activities. Over 5076 of the 29
in the class participated in sports, while the vocal and instrumental departments
occupied the spare time of eleven members. Many had an active part in the Pep Club
and the school newspaper, the Hi-Larity.
With Miss Moran and Mr. File as
class sponsors and Kurt Leonard as
president, we put on our first dance
on January 26.
Early in the year we chose the fol-
I. lowing officers for 1954-55:

THE SOPHS REPORT
Sponsored by R. E. UNDERRINER, M.D.,
Th1S year the roll of the sophomore class stands at 39. Dick Bagenstos was elected
to serve as spokesman for the group in the role of president. To be his right hand
man, Rodson Ellerbusch was selected vice president. Harold Butcher was given the
roll of pen-wielder or secretary, while for a careful check on the precious funds,
Sally Blackmer was chosen treasurer. Most of the sophomore year is spent trying
to boost the prom fund, but we still had time to stage two dances, the outstanding
one being our "Snow Hop" in December.
For our part in the annual Homecoming pep rally we came up with a hilarious
pantomime "The Holstein Machinef' Highlighting the skit was the appearance of
our own somewhat curvaceous "Miss Victoryf'
Sports found many sophs participat-
ing and a number of letter winners.
We owe a vote of thanks to our two
faithful sponsors, Mrs. Christie and Mr. , as ,S K 1
Halvorsen, for their guidance in a very "'

We juniors started one of our busiest years under the direction of our sponsors,
Miss Vollstedt and Mr. Piper. We elected as class officers these capable people:
Stephen Curtis, president, David Bircher, vice president, Marilyn Stoneking, sec-
retary, and Carol Breyfogle, treasurer. Dave moved to lreton and we chose Connie
Halvorsen in his place.
Early in November we presented our junior play, a comedy "Grandad Meets a
Palf' under the direction of Mrs. Christie.
At the beginning of the second semester we began making plans and working
on our spring junior-senior prom. To finance this biggest social event of the school
year, we had sold magazines when were were freshies and operated a concession
stand at track meets when we were sophomores. After our experiences in working
toward the prom, we now look forward to the time when the prom will be given
in our honor.

One again the end of the school year is here. The prospect
of summer vacation sends happy echoes through the resounding
halls of Holstein Public School. Some will walk down these steps
for the last time, never to return again. Some will be happy, some
will be sad, others will be prepared to face that future squarely and
honestly, knowing full well they are ready.
If these stained and stolid walls could speak, what secret would
they reveal? Are they merely masses of rock and mortar, used
only for a functional purpose? No, this and other buildings like it
are symbols of manls thirst and quest for truth and knowledge.
Seniors, as you go out the door, down the steps, and onto the
sidewalk for the last time, stop, look back and up at the silent majesty
of this building. Give it a smile and a "Thank Youn before you go
on your way.
