For ten years she has worked tirelessly and zealously to instill good music into the hearts of her students as well as to the public at large. Miss Willie Lou Robertson is leaving. She will be missed not only as a teacher of the school but as a neighbor and friend. With these brief words, all wish her and her mother Mrs. W. Robertson, who also has played an important part in the musical life of the community, happiness in the future. Page three Page four "WE MADE THE NEWS" With pride and humility we set forth individuals teams, units and departments who have "made the news during this school yearf Our recent appearance in an outstanding publicatior made us recognize that this honor was awarded becaus of the combined efforts of students, faculty, administre tion and community. We have established ideals . . . may we live up t them!

All were a part of the everyday bedlam that broke loose sixth period in Mrs. Griffen's art room when the eleven members of this year's "Mountaineer" staff ioined forces to edit another year book. However, out of this be-dlam, came the i953-'54 "Mountaineer" which we, the annual staff, hope will be a complete and meaningful book of memories of another year at Mount Baker high school. Particular credit is due to Mrs. Griffen, our patient adviser, to our faithful photographers Mr. Clift and Mr. Smith from Jukes Studio, Bellingham, to Western Engraving and Colortype Company, Seattle, and to Cox Brothers, our printer.

Stuart, President There are sixty members this year in the Ski Club, ranging from seventh grade Through twelfth which is the largest membership ever had under the leadership of Mr. Bronson. For raising funds the club collected seven and a half tons of scrap paper and the money was used to carry on club activities as well as finance a ski bus to Mt. Baker. Approximately twenty-five students have taken ski lessons from the Junior Chamber of Commerce Ski School. Other activities of the club were a skat- ing party, the showing of a ski film, and de- signing a suitable club emblem. L. Rivord, B. Howell R. Tuck, J. Barter G. Denny, C. Bronscn, J. Tuck, J.

Forestry, wildlife and gamefish are three subiects that were stud- ied this year in conservation. The task of hatching 20,000 sal- mon was one of the difficult ac- complishments made by the class. On the newly acquired farm they built 35 shelters for wood ducks. Another improvement on this land was a dog-proof fence around the game area. Birds were a big item this year as the students raised preasants and planted a feed plot for up- land game. "OUTDOOR SESSIONS" K. Gates, L. Halldorson Row l: D. Davis, N. Nienaber, S. Ethridge, P.

Winning a "GOLD EMBLEM AWARD" in the National Chapter Contest provided the stimulus for another "banner year" of F.F.A. activities. The award was announced in September and with it came a trip to the national convention for our adviser where he was awarded the degree of Honorary American Farmer. Nlt. Baker is the fourth chapter in the state to ever win a Gold Emblem Award. Larry Richner, who has capably and efficiently served as State F.F.A. president, led our team to another win-Parliamentary Pro- cedure Contest at the state convention this spring. This was the second win in three years and Mt. Baker became the first chapter to ever win the contest more than once. A widely varied but well balanced activity program was carried on throughout the year in an attempt "To have a iob for every member and have every member on the job." Activities which drew malor attention were: sending Beacons and newsletters to former students in the armed forces, development of an ever expanding supervised farming program, entering various judging contests, participat- ing in Northwest Washington Fair and Washington Junior Poultry Show, presenting of programs throughout district for various or- ganizations, passing of S7000 mark with thrift bank, giving of Christmas baskets to needy families, rewarding girls who served at banquet with dinner and all-school dance, annual Open House, New Year's Eve Party, publishing of "Spreader" each quarter, public speaking with Kim Maleng winning district contest, basketball, rifle club, swimming parties, skating party, fishing trips to British Columbia and Lake Tomyhoy, posting of quarterly scholarships and citizenship ladders and continuing of all cooperative projects. Ross Allen, Duane Jacoby, Roger Kvamme, Lane Ehle and Duane Vanderyacht were awarded the State Farmer degree to raise our total to forty-six to lead all chapters in the state. Robert Pettigrew presented the chapter with a registered Jersey calf which was given to Charles Workman. John Blickenstaff as a winner of the annual Jersey Cattle Club was presented with a registered calf by the State Jersey Club.
