Senior Class Motto
KA LIVE WIRE NEVER GETS STEPPED ONJ
Twelve years ago on a bright fall morning in the year 1937 the Senior Class of
1949 started on their journey through school. Along the way various problems
crossed their paths but they were soon solved by using the Golden Rule.
Six pupils started-they were Lucille Claus, Esther Morey, Wylma Davis, Irvin
Dale Sherman, John Sulsberger, and Junior Gallagher. From year to year different
ones moved and Loran Rose, Phillip Hanner, Ted Ericksen, and Betty Lou Miller
joined us. Last year Loran, Phillip, and Betty Lou left Holly Springs leaving the class
with only three members Ted, John, and Junior, called "The Big Three." '
The Class officers are-President, Junior Gallagher: Vice-President, John
Sulsberger, Secretary and Treasurer, Ted Ericksen.
Our grade teachers included Miss Palmer, first grade: Miss McCutchen, sec-
ond grade: Miss Dawson, third grade, Miss Anderson, fourth grade: Miss Lindquist,
fifth grade: and Miss Vander Schaff, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.
Our previous high school teachers included Superintendent, Mr. Brouwer,
during the years, 1945, 1946, and 1947, Mrs. Wright, Mrs. Brouwer, Mrs. Haddock,
Mrs. Nyren, Mr. Mathers, and Mr. DeMaine. The teachers this year are Superinten-
dent, Mr. Heacockg Principal, Mrs. Heacock, and Home Economics, Mrs. Nyren. We
must say the teachers have shown us great co-operation and although we have been
mischievious at times, we still meant well.
The class subjects include Physics, Algebra 2, English Literature, Trigono-
metry, Government and Manual Training. We shall never forget the Iowa Essay Con-
test Junior Gallagher won in his ninth year of school. He told the story of Iowa's one
hundred years of progress in less than one thousand five hundred words. The Cham-
ber of Commerce gave him S25 and presented the school with a large map of Iowa.
We Seniors have been very active in athletics-both baseball and basketball.
Our basketball team consists of only six players. Even though we do not always win
we enjoy playing the game and are considered good losers. We felt quite fortunate
having new basketball suits this season. Holly Springs School is small, but at that
we feel proud wearing our new royal blue sweaters lettered with gold.
The Seniors had their class pictures taken at the Genelli Studio in Sioux City.
Each one seemed well pleased with the results.
We Seniors took part in the Junior Class Play, The Ready Made Family. We
look forward to presenting the Senior Class Play later on.
The Junior and Senior Banquet last year was held in the Holly House, Mrs. Nyren
and the Junior Class Mothers, Mrs. Ericksen, Mrs. Lewie Sulsberger, and Mrs. John
Gallagher cooked and served the dinner. Later in the evening we went to Sioux City to
the Orpheum. Everyone seemed to enjoy the banquet and show very much.
Our Senior year is almost completed, we have finally reached the top. We cannot
say we have finished school as we are just beginning. Life is now our school, our
teachers and friends will greatly be missed. We shall never forget those study periods
and wonderful times we enjoyed together.
The Seniors, John, Ted, and Junior, will say Good-bye but memories will linger
on of Good Old Holly High.

CLASS PROPHECY FOR '49
After work one day Mary and I were reminiscing over some old keepsakes
from college days. The diplomas of '54 reminded us of our fantastic ambition.
' After working and pinching pennies for the last five years, we decided to
check our bank account. At the bank, we found by pooling our savings we'd have
an encouraging amount. We drew out the entire million dollars, astonishing the
teller, who asked, "Are you folks leaving town?"
While l was counting the money, Mary answered, "Better yet, we're going
to fulfill our ambition at last, and visit and explore Mars! "
Determined to travel in style, we decided to get a Jet-Propelled rocketship.
Wasting no time, we set out, suitcases in hand, for the nearest rocketship factory.
After consulting several dealers, we finally saw one that would suit the purpose,
but to secure this ship it was necessary to see the President. After much red
tape, we finally carrie face to face with the President. Being so excited, his farn-
iliarity didn't strike us fully, glancing happily at the bill of sale he handed us we
noticed the signature of J. J. Gallagher. Scrutinizing him more fully we recog-
nized none other than Junior Gallagher, from good old Holly Springs! I 2 2
After reminiscing about school days for a while, he offered to take us on
a tour of his plant. We saw how much he had accomplished in the last ten years.
Offering our congratulations and arnazement that he did become President, we
wished him luck and left the office. Passing his secretary's desk, we heard her
say, "Yes, your husband is in, Mrs. Gallagher." Turning around we saw a short
blonde woman going towards his office.
Next stop was a grocery store where we bought supplies enough to last a
couple of months.
Five days later we reached Mars. Since it was the first day of summer it
was very warm and sunny. We won't attempt to describe Mars, but we are sure
anyone would enjoy it very much. After touring the planet for a couple of days,
we grew tired of our canned food. One noon we happened upon a small city. The
first building we saw was a poultry house. Outside we saw a sign for fresh fried
chicken. We hurried in and to our astonishment it looked very much like home.
While we were enjoying our delicious meal we saw an American approaching us.
I-le seemed glad to see someone from home and immediately started a conversation
We learned that he owned the poultry house and was doing a very profitable bus-
iness. When we learned he was also from Iowa, he suddenly looked familiar. When
he discovered we had come in a rocket ship, he inquired as to where we had pur-
chased it. When the J. J. Gallagher Company was mentioned he seemed interested
and said that he was one of Junior's High School classmates. We looked at each
other, and l asked if he could be Ted Ericksen.
"Why how did you know?" he asked in surprise.
Then Mary said, "Don't you recognize us ?" Ted suddenly recalled who we
were. We told him all about Junior's factory: and then and there we decided to
name our ship the H. S. Torpedo. After recalling various old school incidents,
we began talking seriously on the latest scientific discoveries. Among those men-
tioned were the new planet, Gastrophita, about which Ted was very excited. We
had heard vaguely of it, and he proceeded to explain more about it. When he learned
it was located between earth and Mars, we decided to visit it on the way back, by
going 100 East. Telling Ted to say hello to his faxnily, and wishing him luck we
bade him good-bye and proceeded to our hotel room to make plans for visiting the
Three days later found us at the landing field in Gastrophita. It proved to
be much smaller, but not less interesting, than Mars. ,
America seemed to be quite a novelty here, and the reason was soon evident.
They had an Arnerican King. We were escorted to the Palace and made very com-
fortable. We were to meet the king at dinner that evening. With much ceremony, we
were introduced, but it wouldn't have been necessary, because Johnny Sulsberger
hadn't changed much in the last ten years. He said he had farmed for a while but
he became bored so he journeyed here for excitement. We discovered he had a
harem, but nevertheless, he is still courting his red-headed school-day sweetheart.
Johnny provided us with official guides and we really tourned his planet.
Diminishing funds finally forced us to return to earth and we received a
hearty welcome by fellow classmates and teachers, accompanied by reporters.
This trip was very interesting and held many surprises. Little did we know
we would meet the good old class of '49 as well as many other schoolmates. Johnny's
and Ted's families were also very happy when we visited them and gave them the
messages the boys had sent.

THE COMMUNITY OF HOLLY SPRINGS
There have been a few changes in our little town since last year. The General
Merchandise store which was "Haddocks Cash Market" had changed to a new owner
and is now called "Westfa11's Farm Market." We wish Mr. Westfall the best of suc-
A new basement and vestibule has been added to the Christian Church.
The repair shop that was once Scott's Repair Shop is now managed by Bud
Oliver Weber has taken over the locker services since summer.
Does this poem remind you of our town? ? ? ?
"A Little Town"
I like to live in a little town,
Where trees meet over the street:
You wave your hand and say hello
To every man that you meet.
I like to stop for a minute,
Outside of a grocery store:
And hear the kindly gossip
Of the folks moving in next door.
For life is interwoven
With friends you learn to knowg
And feel their joys and sorrows
As they daily come and go.
So I'm glad to live in a little town,
And care no more to roaxnp
For every house in a little town
Is more than a house ---- it's a home!
In the fall of 1945, the community of Holly Springs started having the monthly
The first one was held September 1945. It was a reception for the teachers.
So every year after that the month of September has been reserved for the annual
Every-year we have an amateur contest. The winners are chosen by the
audience, and are given a prize.
There is a month set aside every year for a ladies night and one set aside
for mens night.
We have a month set aside each fall for the annual Carnival. This year every-
one in the community co-operated and helped to make it a success.
The month of December is always set aside for a Christrnas program put on
by the grades.
The last Community Meeting of the school year is always the annual school
picnic which is in May.
The Community Meetings this year so far have been a real success.

BASKETBALL AND BASEBALL
The Holly Springs Hawks have ended another basketball season with a record
of three wins and eleven losses. Although many of our games were very close it
seemed we just couldn't come out on top. Our basketball team consisted of only
six players which was a handicap especially when one of the players was absent
from a game and also hindered us in our practices by not having enough boys. The
nurnber of points each player made this year are as follows:
NAME OF PLAYER TOTAL POINTS AVERAGE POINTS
Junior Gallagher 280 20
Edward Weber 51 3.63
John Sulsberger 35 2.5
Ted Ericksen 21 1.5
Dick Pixler 20 1.42
Elden Baker 9 .75
Due t.o only six boys in high school this year we had to use Junior High boys
to have enough for a baseball team. We cou1dn't play any regular games but had a
few practice garnes with different schools which was lot of fun. The positions played
were as follows, Elden Baker: catcher, Junior Gallagher: pitcher, Ed Weberg first
base, Ted Erickseng second base, Bud I-Ianner: short-stop, John Sulsbergerg third
base, Dick Pixlerz right field, Gene Belknap: center field, and Robert Dietrickg leit

OUR COURSE OF STUDY
Everyone was pleased with the variety of subjects the faculty was able to
offer our small group. The four Freshman girls are taking Geometry, General
Science, English II, and Home Economics l.
The Sophomores take the same subjects as the Freshmen, except the boys
take Manual Training while the girls have Home Economics 11. Juniors and
Seniors had quite a choice of subjects. They were: English Literature, Biology,
Physics, Commercial Law, Algebra Il, Geometry, Home Economics, and Manual
Training. Both classes took English Literature: the Junior girls took Biology, 1
but the boys chose Physics. The girls chose between Advanced Algebra and
Commercial Law the first semester and everyone took Civics the second semes-
ter and everyone took Civics the second semester. Geometry was carried as a
fifth subject by a few Junior Girls. Some of the Senior boys continued Advanced
Algebra the second semester and also took Trigonometry to prepare for college.
Our extra curricular activities and opportunities consist of Band, Sextet,
Trio, Solo and group singing, and also Basketball and Baseball.
S HOT LUNCHES
The Lunch Program in our school has again proven to be successful.
At the beginning of this year we had as our cooks, Mrs. Unkel and Betty
Weber. At the beginning of the second semester we changed cooks to Mrs.
Hanner and Mrs. Coover.
Our lunches are priced at twenty-two cents for High School and Junior
High students and twenty cents for the lower grades.
The lunch usually consists of two hot dishes, three sandwiches, a dessert
and milk or fruit juice to drink.
This year the order of serving has been changed. At 11:00 the primary
room is served. Then at 11:30 the second and third grade room and at 11:45
the upper grades and at 12:00 noon the High School is served. This order has
proven to work out nicely.
Each month our school received commodities from the Federal School
Lunch Aid. These help out alot! Y I
THE HISTORY OF HOLLY HOUSE
At the beginning of the school year, September 1, 1948, we again welcomed
back Mrs. Nyren as our Home Economics teacher for another year of homemaking.
This year we have two different classes. The Freshmen make up the first
year class and the Sophomores and Juniors are the advanced class.
We started the year by taking a field trip to Sioux City where we visited the
Old Home Bakery. lt was interesting to watch them make bread, rolls, and buns.
The Juniors went shopping for curtains and slip cover material. Mrs. Nyren
thought they did a very good job. '
The Freshmen started the year by making simple aprons and blouses. Then
they cooked three types of breakfasts, light, medium and heavy breakfast. Next they
made plans for their own ideal home. They each figured up how much it would
take to furnish a house with everything. They were all amazed at the amount of
money it took to satisfy their dreams.
The Sophomore girls started by making drapes and glass curtains, and the
Juniors made slip covers. The drapes, curtains and slip covers brighten up our
house very much. The drapes and slip covers are blue with large clusters of
flowers. The Freshmen papered the living room with a light tan with specks in
the wall paper. We next made wool and corduroy projects.
We planned our school board-faculty banquet around the Christmas theme.
The Sophomores planned banquet, the Juniors cooked, and the Freshmen served.
The Banquet was held December 15, 1948. We were very happy to have Mr. and
Mrs. Hadley as guests. After the banquet Mr. Hadley showed moving pictures for
entertainment. Everyone enjoyed the evening very much.
We their studied Family Relationships, and caring for the sick. Everyone
looked pale when we discussed living on a fluid diet while sick. .But after cooking
a fluid diet and a light diet everyone found it wouldn't be so bad after all if the food
was fixed in an appetizing way and the tray decorated and arranged neatly.
Next we studied how to set a table correctly. We gave a tea for the High
School boys, teachers, and Freshmen for practice. There weren't enough tea bags
but everyone had a good time.
We then made plans for party desserts. We made ice cream, Lemon Schaum
Torte, Meringue shell, forzen fruit salad, and frozen whipped cream. We all en-
joyed making them.
The Freshman girls rnade spring dresses after the banquet. They look very
The advanced class are planning to make jackets or a good spring dress for
their spring sewing project.
We are all looking forward to entertaining our mothers on April ll. We are
planning to have open house and style show the last of April.
We have all enjoyed working with Mrs. Nyren and doing the various inter-
This year we had a change in instructors in our music department. We wel-
comed Mr. Luedtke. He came in June and gave lessons and instructed out door
band concerts every Thursday night, last summer.

for days ahead to make this annual carnival a success.
It started with a program which the grades put on: followed by a play pre-

After the play everybody had an exciting time at the fishing pond, fortune
teller, telegram office, basketball throw and the numerous other concessions.
The climax of the evening was the crowning of the King and Queen. With
the playing of Pomp and Circuxnstances, the Royal party marched to the throne.
Who were the King and Queen? ? ? ? Johnny Sulsberger was the King and Pat
Heacock was the Queen? '? ? ? Junior Gallagher and Ilene Belknap were first
attendants. Dick Pixler and Marian Oldis were second attendants.
