Her superior teaching and her sincerity will be re- membered for many years. Miss Massie resigned late in the spring of 1955 so this page becomes a belated honor in recognition of the many services she rendered to Mount Baker High School. Her interest in the Mission Fields was not new. When the opportunity came for her to serve as a teacher missionary she felt that it was a prayer answered. We wish her success.

From where did that spot come? What causes the big curtains to draw back? Who painted the scenery? Who built the stairs and the furniture? Who clears the stage after every performance? Answer: The Stage Manager and his unglamorized crew. It takes many hands to present a stage production or to merely set the stage for an assembly program. Students who accept places on the stage staff know they will have no special recognition. They have the privilege of serving their school in an “‘unsung’” way and take pride in as- sisting directors to present fine performances. Many other students, not on the regular staff, assisted with painting and building. The following deserve special mention: Beverly and Joan Orr, Hazel Pefley, Chuck Workman, Tom Gay and Mike Reitan. Terry Unger had the difficult position of manag- ing the unpredictable mikes. Light Crew in Cage B. Lovelace, G. Denny, R.

We ask our Father in Heaven To give us strength and will— To fulfili our purposes.” These were the familiar words repeated by Nancy Ziegler, our chapter president, at the opening of our regular monthly meetings. According to Gloria Hayes’ accurate secretary’s book, the F.H.A. has spent a very active and interesting year. Twenty girls served at the annual F.F.A. Parent and Son Banquet in the early fall. At the first meeting Mrs. Jacob Zender and Mrs. Faye Dixon were elected as Chapter Mothers and Ray Hockett was the lucky senior F.F.A. boy to be chosen as Chapter Hero. Girls from Whatcom, Skagit, and Snohomish counties attended the Regional Meeting to which Mt. Baker was host. Ann McBain, state president from Sunnyside, Joan Kerr, state treasurer from Monroe, and Janice Aslackson, state secretary from Brewster, headed the list of honored guests. Page forty-six National F.H.A Week was observed October 30 through Novem- ber 5th. All members carried a stuffed animal one day. Displays pertaining to F.H.A. were seen in the front hall and were under the direction of Clarice Nyhus, Vice-President, and Colleen Moors, Songleader. Thelma Bay, Janice Barter, Peggy Spreadborough and Marilyn Kuipers were stars of a very amusing skit presented at a Student Body meeting. In cooperation with the F.F.A, eight Christmas baskets were assembled and distributed to needy families in the community. Under the direction of National Projects Chairman—Jenny Tuck—ten dollars worth of UNESCO Stamps were purchased and distributed. According to the records kept by Margie Chase, our treasurer, a ee F.

They in- cluded a bake sale with Beverly Sweitzer in charge; making and selling Christmas corsages and p ins; selling cards; making and selling small dolls made of yarn. Peggy Spreadborough served as chairman of the Ways and Means committee. In March an All-school dance, the Cotton Ball, was co- sponsored with the F.F.A. Thelma Bay, program chairman, reigned as Queen, and Kim Maleng as King. Eleven girls attended Demon- stration Day at Nooksack February 25th, with Noreen Turcott repre- senting our chapter, giving a dem- onstration on cake decorating. Sue Nyhus, State Projects Chairman, was in charge of arrangements for the day, and registration at the Regional Meeting. Kaye Verkist, our reliable re- porter, kept the Beacon staff, State F.H.A. Newsletter, and Teentimes, the National F.H.A. magazine, well posted on our activities. Early in April, Clarice Nyhus, Nancy Ziegler, Colleen Moors, Sally Richner, and Mrs. Niegemann spent three days in Pullman at the State F.H.A. Convention. Sally was our candidate for State Membership Chairman. Clarice, Nancy and Colleen were awarded their State Homemaker degrees, the highest F.H.A. award possible to earn. Nancy also received a $100 schol- arship toward her future work in Home Economics. In May, the Senior Tea and Installation of of- ticers were the featured events. “Future Homemakers of America —Our destiny as homemakers beckons us toward the new hor- izons that rim the world,” HHS. 8 al Sule Ai sg. by Hin” 44 reps: = whi : i ee . f yg zs , a " ty tit HH ft Picture I—Nancy Ziegler, Cherry Pie Contestant who placed first in district and sixth in the state Picture II—F.H.A.

We tied Concrete 6-6 in the practice game of the season and eight days later the Mountaineers defeated the Anacortes Seahawks, 14-6. On September 30 the Mountaineers suffered their first and last defeat of the season in a non-league game. The Bellingham Red Raiders defeated us 24-0. The Mountaineers started their league games by downing the Ferndale Eagles 33-10. During the next four games the opposing teams scored 19 points against our 170 points. In the first of these four games, we took the Whatcom County Grid lead from the Lynden Lions by trouncing them 38-0. Mount Baker beat the Blaine Borderites 39-12, October 28, at Blaine and the following Friday the Nooksack Pioneers were downed 45-7 to win the Whatcom County Championship.

In the county jamboree, their first contest, the Mountaineers lost an overtime thriller to the Blaine Borderites. Following two practice tilts the Mountaineers braced for league play in which they compiled a ‘4-8’ record and a tie for fourth place. Perhaps the highlights of the season came when Mount Baker lost a 64-62 thriller again to Blaine. Lack in height of the Mountaineers proved an obstacle throughout the season. However, the squad was considered one of the fastest in the league and as final points indicate, was not lacking in scoring ability.

An extra “milk bar’’ was an added convenience and its sales- men were members of the Knights of Baker club. BUS DRIVERS L. Stone, W. Ristine, A. Hunt, T. Ryan, J. Holdt, C. Hagen, H. Sweitzer gchOUy PUD BUS DRIVERS The Busman’s Creed: Through storm, wind, hail and snow, the bus must go through! Day in and day out the same old routes. Same kids, same schools, same noises — How many nice “good mornings” or pleas- ant “good nights’”—Here’s a “hand” to the men and wo- men at the wheel in recog- nition of their safe driving and endless patience. Page sixty-four OFFICE “Click” goes the light on the P. A. board— “Buzz” goes the telephone—Quick goes an office girl to answer either with “office” or “Mount Baker High School.” She takes the message pleasantly, even though she may have been interrupted while typing or running the mimeograph. These girls collect slips, enter absentees, type letters, do odd errands, and jobs that are always at the “beck and call” of the faculty or administration. LIBRARY Novels! Encyclopaedias!
