To these three teachers and coaches who have helped to develop and foster this brand of character and skill, we respectfully dedicate this Moo of 1956. Mr. Kraai, Mr. Gerber, and Mr. File have spent long hours on the athletic field and in the gymnasium trying to develop good teams, win games, and teach the value of good clean sports. In the regular classroom we have also found them showing just such an interest in helping us to learn in thc fields of the social studies, mathematics, and science. We deeply appreciate what they have done for our school and feel that it is an honor and a privilege to make this dedication to them. Sponsored by JAMES W. MARTIN, PHYSICIAN and SURGEON. 6 We carry on our school life under the guidance of these advisors. Teachers and school board working together make it possible for us to achieve much in the field of learning. . , f 0. 5' ' 4 .QI l . -gh 1.

The boys were dressed as babies and chorus girls, while the girls were dressed in outlandish pigtail and engineer outfits and as farmers. The freshmen of '55-'56 are very active in all of the activities of the school. More than half of them participated in girls' basketball, boys' basketball, football, band, glee club and pep club.

Holstein Speeders Snatch Eight Trophies The Holstein High School cinder specialists had another highly successful track season as they gained first place team trophies at the Ida County, Alta, Estherville, and Maple Valley track meets. Cold, rainy weather was the earmark of this year's season as the Holstein, Ida County, Estherville, and Maple Valley meets had to be postponed due to the had weather. The Pirates started the season slowly but soon gained momentum as they placed third in the meet held at Pocahontas. The team then won the Ida County Relays, and in the high point of the season upset a strong and highly favored Aurelia team at the Alta meet. The thinclads then won the Estherville Invitational and made a clean sweep of the Maple Valley Conference by winning a decisive victory in the Maple Valley Re- lays. The team finished second to Sac City in the District Meet as six boys qualified for the State Meet held May 19th. Those boys were: Don Fritz in the discus, Dean Hammer in the pole vault, Larry Leinbaugh in the 440-yard dash, and the mile re- lay team of Dennis Kolb, Francis Bienlien, DeWitt Cries, and Larry Leinbaugh. The chief characteristic of this 1956 Holstein Relay Squad's success was team depth as these cindermen turned in one of the finest track records in Holstein High School history. 1956 Holstein Relays Royalty: Connie Halvorsen, Carol Breyfogle, and Nancy Michaelsen.

The officers chosen by the band members were: Stephen Curtis, president. George Hueschen. vice-president, Connie Halvorsen, secretary, and Mary Kruse, treasurer. The marching band, directed by Mr. Harold Halvorsen, performed at all the home football games. The band put in many long hours drilling on different maneu- vers.

After the football season a concert band was selected from the marching band personnel by Mr. Halvorsen. George Hueschen auditioned at Spencer and was given a seat in the All-State Band. Five members of the concert band-George Hueschen, Charles Jones. Louise Halvorsen. Bonnie Blackmer, and Mary Knuth-were selected for the Northwest lowa Band. Each member of the band received private, individual instruction each week and kept a record of the number of hours practiced. Positions were assigned according to the number of technique assignments passed. Points were awarded toward win- ning a letter.

After the business staff spent many hours selling ads Io finance the paper, editors Marilyn Stoneking and DeAnna Goettsch assigned jobs to eager reporters. And the ball began rolling ..... A cooperative staff took their job seriously and with untiring ambition met their Wednesday dead- lines.

The story took place on a small island connected to the mainland by only one bridge. Elaine Blair, coming to claim her inherited property, found it occupied by the mysterious Dr. Fersig. his sinister house- keeper, and her deaf-mute son. Knowing there was a large sum of money in the house, Dr. Fersig had Ollie blow up the bridge after the visitors had left. However, they had not yet left the island so they had to stay overnight. Bobby and Kinks, the youngsters, added the needed humor to the play. The skeleton walking through the dim shadows of the house brought thrills and chills. Elaine was found hypnotized after she had disappeared, and Mrs. Donahue was discovered to be the strange little lady in thc attic. After the money was found and Dr. Fersig tried to make his escape, he was stopped by the famous detectives, Mr. and Mrs. ,lack Dow, who had been disguised as the housekeeper and her son. The audience was kept in suspense until the very end when the mystery was finally solved. :il ll ' 1 T7 fb ,, CAST OF CHARACTERS Dr. Harold Fersig, a scientist .............

Queen lerri lean and King Kenneth Evening in Paris April 25, 1955, is an evening long remembered by the juniors and seniorsgthe eve- ning of a very big party. Guests entering the gym were met by eight French waiters and waitresses. Carol Hoothby, Phyllis Vohs, Karen Butcher, Nancy Henrichsen. Kurt Leonard. John Leck- band, Steven Janssen, and Alfred Hass were the freshmen selected for this honor. Going through a gold Arc d' Triumph, we entered the lounge shining red with scenic and modern paintings hanging on the walls. Looking around the lounge one found comfortable chairs, tables with lamps and three easels. As we entered the ballroom we spied the huge Eiffel Tower standing in the center of the dance floor. Around the floor were flower carts filled with pretty flowers, while street lamps surrounded the floor with soft light. Walking through an opening in the brick wall, we entered a sidewalk cafe. Here were tables and chairs for the tired and hungry spectators and dancers. lf one looked up, he found a red and white candy-striped awning. Tony Bradley furnished us with wonderful dance music from the stage whose back- ground was a large red, white, and blue flag of France. From 9:00 p. in. to 12:30 a. ni., we danced and danced. During the intermission Jerri ,lean Cole and Kenneth Kruse w ere crowned Queen and King of the 1955 Prom. The juniors will always remember the fun they had in working on the prom, whilc to the seniors it was a big deep mystery until that very night. Those attending this party will always remember it as one of the highlights of the year 1954-55.

The guests'--the senior'-. fav- Ulll- illllf svhool board- as well as other visitors anxiously waited for the doors of the transformed gymnasium to open to see the result of the hard work and Careful plan- ning of the juniors and their sponsors. Miss Vollstedt and Mr. Gerber. Entering the realms of the "Mysterious Jungle." the guests were greeted by dark-haired. dark-skinned native girls and white hunters. The freshmen who served as guides and later as waitresses and waiters were: Maxine Vohs. Camilla Hanson. llonnie Christiansen, Loretta Claus- sen Bob Kraai. Albert Leonard. Dean Gerber, and john Kolb. The entryway. resembling two paths in the dense forest. led to the lounge with the soft chairs and couches for the viewers and those with tired feet. llemanding the attention of all was the beautiful jungle waterfall and stream. Snakes and lizards crawled near the stream in true jungle fashion, while thirsty elephants peeped from behind trees to take a drink. Through the dense vegetation. the visitors found their way to the ballroom. ln the middle of the floor stood a grass hut. with a native cautiously peering out the door. Near the hut and beneath a tree bearing three coconuts lay a leopard. The stream. breaking out of the thick tree-lined wall. was surrounded by jungle flowers, and. caught in the middle of the stream, was a pink-plumaged flauiingo. From the far side of the ballroom a native had forgotten his cauldron and drums. Rising out of the jungle on the back of the stage be- tween the tents. rose high mountain ranges and volcanoes in colorful murals--the results of long hours of patient and painstaking work by Roger Coettsch and his artist crew. When the guests felt the need of a snack or a cool drink of punch. they entered the lean-to of the tents. Mosquito netting provided complete protection from jungle mosquitoes and tsetse flies. Throughout the jungle. tropical flowers and butter- flies lived in profusion. Musit' for the evening daneing was furnished by Bob Conley and his orchestra. .Nt intermission Mary Kruse and Steve Curtis were honored as Queen and King of the 1956 Junior-Senior Prom. As the last piece was played, everyone left, carrying with him pleasurable memories of the '56 Prom. The Care- fully guarded secret of the theme helped to make the "Mysterious Jungle" more impressive and the night spent there a real highlight of the year. ,H f, , Queen Mary and King Stephen f " i 3' Memnrles are made of these b ured hy OLR LADY uf f.

SKIP T0 OM.-XHA Bright and early Tuesday' morning. the twenty-eight seniors and our two spon- sors for the day' Mr. Piper and Mr. Kraaiffpiled into a chartered hus and started on our way' to Omaha for our "skip" dav. We arrived in Denison shortly' hm-fore seven o'r-lor-k aml after touring the gas stations and auto parts stores. we had the lvrakes on our hus repaired and proceeded on our w av. Our first stop in Omaha was at Boys Town. Vile saw the hoys working at their various trades--woodworking. a hody shop. a lwakerv. a tailor shop. a barber shop. and so onsin the trade huilding: we saw the indoor field house used for track. footlvall aml hasehall practice. We toured the grounds in our hus and visited the ehapel. It was nearing noon so we went to the Virginia Cafe. the oldest cafe in Omaha. founded in 1376. where we were served our dinner in the party' room. After a leisurely' meal we again elimhed into our hus aml went to the Swift packing plant. Vlfe were taken through the smoking. refrigeration and packing de- partments. Yve spent considerahle time in the killing department watching the animais heing killed. skinned. and cut up. .M WOW-TV station.we watched a homeniaking program that was on the air. Wie found the behind-the-scenes action hoth entertaining and interesting and could have stayed there much longer especially when it he-came movie time. but our time was passing swiftly' and we had to hurry' on our way. We were taken uptown and set out on our own. Vve returned in an hour with tales of our little eseapades. ln that short time we had covered music stores. hotel telephone hooths. and nearly' every' department in Brandeis store. Ten people had missed the escalator ride. We left the city' and went to the municipal airport where we watched. from the tower. two large planes take off. Wie settled in our hus and returned home. stopping for lunch in Denison. l am sure that all ofthe seniors will reineinher this day as one of the most mem- orable events of their high school days. The little talks. the group singing and the general confusion on the bus added to the enjoyment of the dav. A A word to the wise from the seniors: If you want to have fun with your class- mates on Nskipii day. no matter where you go. take a hus. We've been convinced!
