History of the Holly Spring School
From 1850 till 1880 the schoolhouse was located near the
present Walter Scott residence. Then the school was moved
to the place it is now 1ocated.and a new schoolhouse was built.
ln 1917 this building was moved to the north corner of the
school grounds and construction was started on the present
In 1941 a large gymnasium was added. This was a delight
to everyone and many hours have been spent in good recreation
The old school is still in good condition considering how
many students pass in and out of its doors daily.
The first means of transportation to the Holly Springs
Consolidated school was four horse drawn, wooden wheeled
busses. Later wooden busses with balloon tires and a roof were
brought out. These busses were helped out by three of four cars
with school bus signs onthem. These wooden busses were used
until about 1939. The four wooden busses were model "T's".
Still later these busses were replaced by 1939 "VS" steel
busses, they have heaters, all have tire chains, cushioned seats
and many other improvements. Fire extinguishers, signal flares
emergency door and stop sign that, can be turned from the inside
of the busses. We hope these busses will last a while yet.

The History of Holly Springs
The history of Holly Springs is a very quaint one but yet quite common
compared to that of other communitites.
Many changes have been made since the original location of the town.
The first signs of a community were further west than that of the present
First was a store built in 1885 by a man named Bushey-a small distance
east of the present john Gallagher residence. Later it was moved further west
to the corner near Lewis Sulsberger. Next an Indian agent named Price, who was
formerly from Holly Springs, Mississippi, bought the store. From here the town
got the name of Willow Springs later it was changed to Holly Springs.
A few years later George Laper bought the store from Price, and after hav-
ing possession for awhile, it was bought by Batman, and again it was bought from
Batman by Wengert who moved the store to the present site of Holly Springs, on
the north side of the highway. In later years the store was sold to the Rose Bros.
who built a new brick building and then in 1946 sold it to Bruce Haddock when they
moved from the community.
The settlement grew larger and finally a school was built, and in about
1914 it was decided that all of the small country schools should be consolidated in
to one larger one in town. These four of five school houses were moved to the
school grounds and were used while the new school building was being built.
Many additions were made as the year went by including a new gymnasiiun and
auditorium. This was a government project, and was completed in 1941, This has
added a great deal to the town and has served for many hours of entertainment and
Up to the year of approximately 1926 all of the roads were unproved or
graveled. A new concrete highway was constructed which helps to make up the
state highway known as the "Denison,"
There are now two churches in Holly Springs and they are: Christian
Church which was erected in 1894, and is located in the south part of town. The
Open Bible Church was built in 1945, and is located on the site of an old black-
smith shop many years ago.
The telephone system was introduced approximately 45 years ago-and it
was located in one of the farm homes, this was later moved to town, and has been
operated here since.
Holly Springs, now has many new buildings and business houses. A new
building across the highway--a repair shop was built in 1945. A new business house
has been erected in 1947, which is an implement, and electrical appliance shop.
And also a new locker plant has been introduced and proved to be very successful.
All these and other places make up the business part of town.
At present the population is approximately fifty-one. Many of the members
of the town have left, but others have filled their places.
Other things have been added. A large bus line runs through Holly Springs
six times a day. This proves to be helpful to everyone.
Holly Springs is not large in size but everyone is proud of it and the history
behind it and what it means.

Hot Lunch Prog ram
Our hot lunches started November 19, 1945. Mrs. Grace Unkel
and Mrs. Clem Rose, known to us as Eva, left us-when they bought a
home in Missouri in April of 1947. Mrs. Grace Unkel still keeps up with
the good work. Mrs. Rose's place was taken by Verta Mae Hanner.
When they first started serving us our noon lunches they had noth-
ing to cook on but an old fashioned cook and oil stove, The water was
heated in teakettles. The floors were in bad condition and there were no
Recently they have purchased an electric refrigerator, electric
stove, a deep freeze, and a water heater. A cement floor has replaced the
wooden floors in the eating room about six tables and benches have been
built by our very capable janitor, Oliver Weber,
The usual pattern for the lunches are:
Sandwiches fbutter, meat, or cheese,
Cookies or fruit
Beverage lmilk or fruit juice,
We sincerely hope these hot lunches will be as successful in the
years to come as they are now. Even though we seemingly crab on our off
days we would all hate to go back to our cold sack lunches again.

The Nail We Drive In Now is the Peg on Which We
I-lang our Future.
For twelve years we have traveled that long, hard wearisome
path toward the goal which we have long aimed. We have now conquered
all the ups and downs and finally have reached the top,
When we entered High School we had the whole sum of five. We
were as follows: Darrel Sulsberger, Betty Weber, Dorothy Dowling,
Phyllis Hopp and Nancy Meyers. Our number has increased and decreased
throughtout the years.
As Seniors we are: Darrel Sulsberger, Betty Weber and Dorothy
Dowling was with us but received all her credits by mid-year and is
coming back to graduate with us in the spring.
Darrel has been the only boy in our class all through High School.
He was often a good loser, but we girls gave in on many arguments! Did
you ever notice how red his ears get when he blushesi '.'.2 I I
Our class seems to be one of the smallest except for the class of
'45, They also numbered three. We three have held a class office every
year of our High School. The Senior Class officers are: President--
Darrel Sulsberger, Vice-President--Dorothy Dowling, Secretary and
For our jr. and Sr. Banquet last year we had a Hawaii setting. After
our big dinner at the Mayfair Hotel we went to the Grace Methodist Church
at Morningside. There we saw a play, "Murder in the Cathedral", put on
by the students of the college,
Although it seems as though we seniors never got into much mischief,
we have had lots of fun at roller-skating parties and Freshman initiation and
etc. I'm sure we will miss Whitey coming to school late, Betty always
chewing gum and whispering and Dorothy hurrying through lunch at noon
hour: I 2 I 1
So it is the Senior Class bidding you farewell forever, never again shall
we have the opportunity to say"so-long or "be seeing you next year", its
just plain old--"Good-Bye".

junior Class History
One bright fall morning in the year 1937 the junior class of 1948
started on their long journey through school, Along this journey we have
had our ups and downs but difficulties were soon settled by the sound
judgment of the teachers.
Six pupils started, Lucille Claus, Esther Morey, Wylma Davis, john
Sulsberger, Irvin Dale Sherman, and junior Gallagher. From time to time
different ones moved and Loran Rose, Phillip Hanner, Teddy Ericksen, and
Betty Lou Miller joined us. This year Loran, Phillip, and Betty Lou
left Holly Springs leaving junior, Teddy, and john to show thei ' ational
The class officers are, President--Teddy, Ex-icksen, Vice-1 esident
and Secretary--junior Gallagher and Treasurer--john Sulsberger.
Much credit is due Miss Palmer our first grade teacher for her
patience and quick methods of learning. Other grade teachers incl--ded
Miss McCutchen, second grade, Miss Dawson, third grade, and M- 4 Vander
Schaff, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade.
Since entering High School we have been fortunate in having the same
Superintendent, Mr, Brouwer. Other High School teachers this year are
Mr. De Maine, Principal and Coach and Mrs. Nyren, English and Home
The junior Class has been ve ry active in athletics, both baseball and
basketball. Every minute of playing is enjoyed even though we do not al-
ways win. At least we can say we are good losers.
The Juniors enjoyed putting on their class play "johnny Grows Up."
They well remember the night they presented it. How the worst snow
storm of the season caused the lights to go out during an important part of
the play and also the doorbell that never seemed to ring on time.
The juniors have received their rings and are very proud of them.
They have been trying to raise money for the junior and Senior Banquet
in different ways such as selling pop, taking orders for the annual, and
selling magazine subscriptions and cards.
Unbelievable but true, our junior year is almost completed. Our
colors are blush pink and cream and our class flower is the sweet pea.
Since there are only three juniors left we look forward to our Senior year
as being a class of quality not quanity.

The History of Holly House
In the fall of 1947 our Home Ec. teacher, Mrs. Nyren told us that
through the co-operation of the school board, we were to have a whole
house to work and live in during class. We decided to call it the Holly
We each had to make a room plan as to color and furniture. We
also took a field trip to Sioux City one afternoon to learn something a-
bout buying equipment for a house. We looked at stoves, refrigerators,
laundromat fautomatic washerj, and we were first introduced to FM
Radio Reception. They showed and explained the different parts to us.
At Martins we looked at stoves and kitchen-ware. From there we went
to Sioux City Crockery where we looked at and priced dishes, glassware,
and silverware, Some of the students went to Cooks Paint and Wallpaper
Store to pick out our wallpaper. A wonderful time was enjoyed by all.
While our equipment was being bought and set up, each girl made
an apron. They were pretty good considering very few of us had ever made
a real garment before. We also made curtains and hemmed dishtowels. AWe
refinished and painted the furniture in the house and made a table for the
dining room. .
When we finally moved into our house, situated in the Science room,
we wound ourselves and others up in wall paper and paint. But I guess in
the end the paper was hanging straight and the holes not showing.
We divided into four groups and made cookies and Christmas candy.
At the beginning of the Second semester we lost two class members
so decided to reorganize into three groups.
One group made blouses while the other two groups made and served
We studied the way to set the table and Mrs. Nyren tried to teach us
some manners. Group I started on their blouses while Groups II and III
started planning and preparing breakfasts.
ln the spring we plan to make a print dress, plan and prepare lunches
and simple parties, We hope to climax our year with an "open house"
tea and show our room to the community.
Our Agriculture class under the leadership of Mr. Brouwer have
planned many interesting projects. We are nearly through our book and
when we finish we have planned many interesting trips.
Our class consists of five members: Edward Weber, Frank Modde,
Elden Baker, Melvin Hanner, and Dick Pixler,
In October we went on a field trip and estimated the yield of corn,
In january we visited the Art Beem farm and judged dairy cows and test-
ed milk. We plan to go to see a drainage project and to test soil samples.
At the present time we are studying different types of farming, Grain
farming,'Livestock farming, dairying, poultry, and hog raising.
We found that by specializing in one type and carrying one or more
of the other types a farmer was more assured of a steady income.
Soil conservation and contour farming is very essential type of farm-
ing if we are to preserve our top soil which is depleting very rapidly.
As a conclusion to this article on Agriculture, we feel that an Ag-
riculture course is very worth-while and one that every high school boy or
girl should take that lives in this belt of the United States.

Carnival Days ,
A record crowd gathered on the night of October 24, 1947 to witness
our big annual carnival. The audience enjoyed the play "Why Some Folks
Leave Home---and Others Don't." Boy was that birthday cake good!
Dick Pixler brightened the scene with "Women, and How to Improve
Them." fStrict1y the masculine ideas., Herbies First Date another hum-
orous event, was our final play for the evening.
The crowd was then dismissed and urged to spend freely at the
various stands. They could choose from the Doll and Basketball throws,
our Exhibition Booth, Fortune -telling, the Fish Pond, Beauty Parlor,
Telegrams, and Novelty Stand. Not to mention the delicious cakes and
pies, among other things which were sold in the Home Economics Room.
Everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time, especially at the Novelty
Stand and with our "Fortune -teller."
Our "Carnival Queen" was selected by popular vote from three can-
didates selected by the High School, Evelyn Beem, Betty Weber, and Betty
'Lou Miller. No-one knew who the queen was until all three girls appeared
on the stage in formals that night, and Betty Lou Miller was crowned by Mr
Brouwer and was presented with an engraved locket.
An electric radio was given to Eldon for having the most tickets, and
Mr. Brouwer presented Mary Modde with a class pin for selling the most
tickets. One of our bright little fifth-graders Ronald Anrdoy was given an
electric lamp for being the best guesser.
Our little Novelty girls Marilyn Haddock and Marion Weber won the
heart of our patrons with their bright costumes, blithe singing and tempting
wares, which included bubble gum.
Telegrams became popular for sending messages--silly and other-
wise, it was one way of finding some one in the crowded gymnasium.
The vast auditorium looked lonely ve ry late Friday night or Saturday
morning, as everyone went wearily home with empty pockets and happy

or cookies, and the committee served coffee. lt was a real success.

Our baseball season this fall was inte resting and enjoyable but did
not bring in as many victories as we had hoped. Out of the 6 games we
played we lost 5 and the other game ended in a tie with Climbing Hill.
We started out our season with L. Rose, pitcherg D. Sulsberger,
catcherg J. Gallagher, first baseg Ed Weber, second baseg J. Suslberger,
third baseg M. Hanner, short stopg P. Hanner, left field: E. Baker, center
fieldg and D. Pixler. right field.
Our first game was Sept. 16th with Smithland at Holly Springs. The
game started slow but Smithland finally began to score to beat us 17 to 1.
Then next came the Sectional Tournament Sept. 20th in which we were
defeated by Bronson 15 to Z.
Our next game Sept. Z3rd, came with Climbing Hill in which we tied
them at the end of 10 endings at 17 each. The game was called off because
of darkness. Gallagher and Rose traded off pitching and playing first base
Next we went to Smithland on Sept. 26th where we 'lost 18 to 10 in an
exciting 'extra inning game.
On Oct. 7th we went to Salix with out Rose who quit school and moved
to Missouri. Gallagher did a good job of pitching by striking out 9 of their
players but the game ended with Salix ahead I2 to ll after we had played
an extra inning.
For our last game we went to Oto and lost 8 to 9 in another extra
When Loran moved to Missouri we changed around some with j.
Gallagher, pitcherg M. Hanner, catcherg D. Sulsberger, first baseg B. Hanner
short stop, P. Hanner, left fieldg E. Baker, center field and D. Pixler,
During the season our pitchers struck out 49 of their ppponent's
players while only 30 of our players struck out.
The Holly Springs Basketball teams decided on "The Hawks" as
their name for the season. It seems that the Hawks had an unlucky year
and won only l game out of 13. We still have two games and the Section-
al Tournament to play. We do hope these last games will be in our favor.
Our only victory was when we played Salix over there. Some of these games
were very exciting and close, but it seems that our opponents always came
out on top.
Come on boys--Lets see if we can do better next year! Z

Holly Springs Band
In the month of june, 1946, many strange noises were heard in the
small town of Holly Springs, Ia. yes, the young folks of Holly were
practicing their'clarinets, trumpets and other instruments that was later '
to be organized into a small band, Mr. Walter K. Schofield, of Sioux City
was the director of the band, and under his direction the band has pro-
gressed very rapidly.
When first organized, the band had a membership of fourteen. In
September we lost a trombone and saxophone but these two were soon re-
placed by four new instruments which gave us a new membership of six-
teen. Private lessons and band rehearsal were still in order and the band
made their first appearance at Community night in October. More appear-
ances were at school activities and basketball games of that year.
During the following summer Mr. Schofield came from Sioux City
every Thursday, and gave private lessons. Band rehearsal was held in the
afternoon with an outdoor concert in the evening.
At present the band consists of:
5 Clarinets: Orval Cox, Evelyn Beem, janice Coover, Margery
Brouwer, and Betty Weber.
3 Saxophones: Ilene Balknap, Robert Dietrich, and Marilyn Haddock.
Z Trombones: Dick Pixler, and Esther Dietrich.
l Baritone: Mr. Brouwer.
1 Trumpet: Edward Weber.
3 Cornetsg Ronnie Haddock, Bette Belknap, Robert Hanner, The snare
drum is played by Lois Zortman and the base drum by Bette Ericksen.
Many of the community members often help in the band on special
occassions, by playing various instruments. This help is greatly appre-
ciated by eve ryone.
The band also took part in the Music Festival at Correctionville last'
spring and all of the members enjoyed it immensely.
Upon being asked his opinion of the band, Mr. Schofield said, "In
my opinion these children are the best talented students I have ever had,
in many years of teaching."
We're all proud of this and all in all we wish the band the best of
luck for years to come.
