Y BLACK GOLD fCCEWCCD We are again presenting to you a year¬ book, “Black and Gold”, from the Steinbach Collegiate Institute. It has been prepared in the hope that it will serve as a means of enjoyment to you, our parents and friends. It is also our sincere hope, and belief, that this yearbook will, in future years, bring back pleasant memories to you who have spent this year at the S.C.I. Preparing this year book has been in many ways a difficult task but it has been enjoy¬ able and beneficial. I would in particular like to thank for their help the staff advisor, Mr. John Peters; the assistant editor, Pat Mueller; the business manager, Edmer Rei- mer; the advertising manager, Gerald Rei- mer; the circulation manager, George Rieger; and last but not least, all our advertisers. The Editor. Mr. W. D. Kornelsen (Sec.-Treas.), Mr. S. B. Rieger (Chairman), Mr. J. Kruetzer, Mr. A. B. Rempel, Mr. Wm. P. Wiebe, Mr. E. J. Friesen. Message from the School Board It has been said that education is an econ¬ omical method of assisting an initially ill- adapted individual, during the short period of a single life, to cope with the ever-increas¬ ing complexities of the world. Commonly speaking, we are restricting the term “educa¬ tion” to those adjustments made by the im¬ mature individual through the special insti¬ tution of the school. Of late, much criticism has been directed at the learning processes found in the schools of our province. Many maintain that our children are not receiving as good an education as they deserve. If this is true, then we must either contrive to make education more effective or we must be satisfied with a simpler civilization. To you who graduate, we say that you have chosen wisely in completing your high school studies, in spite of some apparent shortcomings in the programme. You have learned not only with but by each other. It is to be lamented that so many drop out too early and thus fail to help raise the standards of society. We congratulate you on your effort to publish another yearbook. Though the pur¬ pose of the school is to provide something more worthwhile than memories, yet your schooldays will remain forever a part of you and your lives. They should be memories not only of childhood escapades but of effort and accomplishment, shared with others, and directed and encouraged by interested and able teachers. In the years which lie ahead of you, always remember that to a great extent you will be the masters of your fate. Success or fail¬ ure, joy or sorrow, good or evil; these things are largely in your hands. May these few years which you have spent in school help you live lives that are rich, full of meaning, and of service to your fellow men.

May I first of all extend greetings and best wishes to the Black and Gold for a successful year. The service rendered by a collegiate in¬ stitute such as you have in Steinbach is be¬ coming increasingly more important with the passing years. The complexities of living and of making a living have become much great- ter than they were when your parents were students at school. It is well if you think about this occasionally and attempt to assess the value of the contribution your collegiate life and training have made, and is making, to life and living. Much of what you learn from books will not long be remembered. Cold scholarship is a lesser achievement, but the fact that you do labor and strive in co¬ operation with others to achieve scholarship leads to greater development such as charac¬ ter, personality and intellectual interest and ability. Your daily associations with your teachers who know you well contribute more than you will probably ever realize toward these greater achievements. As students you learn to work and play together, that is you learn to live together. Thus you become citi¬ zens, better equipped and more able to make a greater contribution to the world commun¬ ity of which you are a member. Your Colle¬ giate is opening the doors of opportunity for you, and when you graduate may you be able to say “It has been good for me to have been here.” To all, graduates and students, I wish success and happiness. J. W. Muirhead. PAGE EIGHT Another school year has almost run its course. Let us pause briefly to indulge in a little reminiscing. The year 1955-56 was a year filled with activity, a year in which we attained some goals we were working for, and also a year that had its quota of disappointments and moments where we had to acknowledge de¬ feat. But, all in all, it was a good year. Though I am not by nature too lavish with praises, at this time permit me to hand out a few bouquets. I want to thank my col¬ leagues for their fine cooperation throughout the year. All the teachers were willing to go the ‘second mile’ when an extra duty was pushed their way. Because of you the year was a success. Then, also, I am grateful to you, the stu¬ dents. In the name of the teaching staff I can tell you that it was a pleasure for us to work with you, and for you. Honest effort, on your part, though not necessarily always successful, was really appreciated. I have very much enjoyed working with the differ¬ ent executives of the Student Council in their various endeavors. The McLean-Hunter mag¬ azine selling campaign, the sports events, the literary activities, the socials, and this Year¬ book testify of your zeal and cooperation. This year our enrollment almost reached the two hundred mark. We worked in seven classrooms, the Shop and Home Economics Department, and in addition thirty-one type¬ writers were intermittently tickering out monotonously uniform music. Truly, our school was a hive of activity. In closing, I wish you luck for the final hurdle, the approaching June examinations. May the work we did this year make us more capable to render to our communities the services they will expect of us, and may we be prepared to pass those Grand Finals which no man will ever be able to bypass.

IX The President Speaks At the termination of any phase of a per¬ son’s life, it is natural for one to look back and review the period just passed, and to measure, as it were, the successfulness of one’s efforts. As I view in retrospect the extra-curricular activities of the Steinbach Collegiate Stu¬ dents’ Association, since my first year in high school, I cannot but feel a certain amount of satisfaction in our attainments, during this span of time, and particularly during this past school year. Our various projects and activities such as the MacLean-Hunter Mag¬ azine Plan, literary, socials, inter-school sports and the spring play have all been suc¬ cessful. That these various functions have been successful suggests the fact that by working together we have achieved some¬ thing much more valuable than only the fin¬ ancial gain realized by our magazine selling campaign or the enjoyment of a social func¬ tion — co-operation. The co-operation we have learnt at the S.C.I. this year, will help to make us better citizens of our country and our community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the fine school spirit you have exhibited. Working together with you, your council and committees, has for the most part been a pleasurable experience. Finally I would extend to my fellow grad¬ uates, as well as to those of you who have not yet completed your high school educa¬ tion, my sincerest good wishes for success in whatever vocation you enter. May each of us take advantage of the opportunities for service to our Maker and to our fellow men. Gerald F. Reimer. PAGE TWELVE QxaduateA AT THE CROSSROADS You to the left and I to the right, For the ways of men must sever — And it well may be for a day and a night, And it well may be forever. One ship sails east And another sails west, While the selfsame breezes blow ' Tis the set of the sails and not the gales That determine the way they go. Like the ships of the sea Are our human ways As we journey on through life Tis the set of the soul determines the goal And not the joy or the strife. PAGE THIRTEEN Valedictory . . . Mr. Chairman, Honored Guests, Inspector Muirhead, Ladies and Gentlemen: In every person’s life there comes a time when he interrupts his duties to reflect on the past and ponder over the future. This is particularly beneficial in that from past mistakes and disappointments we may alter our principles and aims to insure the mould¬ ing of a stable character and the selection a career which will bring happiness to both, ourselves and others. Therefore, with our de¬ parture from the Steinbach Collegiate Insti¬ tute imminent, this is a fitting time to do just that. The early years of our education are times to which we look back with nostalgia. Though we may not fully realize it, many character¬ istics and ideals were assimilated during that early formative period, both at home, in church, and at school. This graduating class may have been scattered over a wide area, but teachers were busy cramming facts and figures into our little heads, complementing them with the occasional word of praise or disapproval. Since that time, however, we have matured considerably, our convictions and guiding principles, have become more in¬ grained in our characters. During the past year we have shared ma¬ ny happy, occasionally frivolous, but on the whole, profitable times together, both after and during school hours. There was, for in¬ stance, the day when everyone came to school, dressed so nattily as to attract atten¬ tion. And we did attract attention — what with the boys wearing rainbow-hued neck¬ ties “matched” with many-colored shirts and large suspenders. All our fun and frolic, however, was not comprised of originating nightmarish concoctions of that kind. Be¬ fore Christmas the entire class enjoyed itself at a banquet, followed by suitable entertain¬ ment. Then, too, there was the crisp winter evening when the sleigh ride was held. When we view the vear in retrospect we must not forget the work of the Student Council, the various committees, and the I.S.C.F., for, be¬ ing the seniors, we quite naturally supplied rrmr»h of the leadership. These, then, are the activities which will long remain synony¬ mous with our last year at the S.C.I. Although we have apportioned some of our time for extra-curricular activities, we have spent hours mulling over mathematical pro¬ blems, delving into the hidden mysteries of the chemical world, absorbing the inspira¬ tions of great authors, and tracing the past events of human history. Through all this we trust, that we have learned something to prepare us more adequately for our life’s voyage. You, our parents and friends, are at the gang-plank wishing us a pleasant voyage. The ship which we are boarding represents the medium by which we hope to fulfil our ambitions or reach the port. This will entail the selection of a career or vocation which is an important step in life. To my fellow graduates I would like to give this advice: Once you have made a definite decision re¬ garding this, stay with it, and strive mightily for it. As an example we might consider one of O. Henry’s humorous characters, James Turner, who was on his feet all day, working in a hat-cleaning establishment. His concep¬ tion of happiness was different from those which we might harbour, but he clung to it, even though a multi-millionaire offered to be his benefactor. What was his idea of bliss? Why, he would take off his shoes and socks, place his burning feet against the cold bars of his iron bed and was happier than any millionaire ever could be. There are a number of things we must keep in mind during this voyage. The crew, i.e. our friends and advisers must be true and faithful ones, for when storms brew, they will be very valuable. Then last of all there is One who is the most valuable man on board, the Captain, who guides the ship through all difficulties. May our Captain be the One who says: “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the wav which thou shalt go In closing I would like to extend a vote of thanks to parents, teachers and school¬ mates for making this graduation possible, to all of our worthy guests and to all of you friends for making it a success and lastlv to mv fellow graduates who bestowed upon me the opportunity to deliver this valedic¬ tory. Edmer Reimer PAGE FOURTEEN Gerald Reimer Gerald is a cheerful, good-natured fellow, who al¬ ways has a smile for everyone. His energetic nature enables him to take an active part in extra-curricu¬ lar activities, besides keeping up with his duties. Gerald served as Vice-President for the first term. During the second term he was President and did a very good job as Advertising Manager for the Yearbook. His Saturdays are spent in Winnipeg where he works for his father at “Reimer Express Lines.’’ As to his future plans - time will tell! Henrietta Reimer Henrietta is an industrious student who takes her subjects seriously. She is inclined to philosophize on humanity and things in nature. She has sound ideas and often expresses her opinions in class. She takes delight in finishing her English assignments to the minutest detail. This skill is made good use of in her editing of the Collegian. Henrietta is also active in the I. S. C. F. organization and on the Social Committee. Her immediate plans for the future are to go to Normal School, then to become a mission¬ ary teacher. Edmer Reimer Edmer is an all-around good student and is ge¬ nerally well-liked. He spends much time on extra¬ curricular activities. He was President of the Stu¬ dent Council during the first term and Vice-Presi¬ dent in the second term. On the Yearbook Com¬ mittee he served as Business Manager. In his stu¬ dies he does well and deservedly won the Chamber of Commerce Scholarship for highest marks in Grade XI. His capacity for hard work and his knack for speech-making has earned him the honored role of valedictorian. Edmer is also a great sport en¬ thusiast. Though many responsibilities are thrust upon him, he retains a uniform weight throughout the year. His brilliance seems the proper requisite and augurs well for his future career of lawyer. Elaine Loewen Elaine is a dark-haired, well-groomed, attractive girl who has been with us now for two years. Her home is in Twin Creek and she drives back and forth every day. In her studies she does quite well and her favorite subjects are German and Mathe¬ matics. She has decided opinions on different sub¬ jects, is never stuck for words, and expresses her ideas freely. During the first term she was the So¬ cial representative for her class. If her present am¬ bitions materialize we may in a year or two from now find her in some schoolroom teaching the three R’s and what goes w ith them. t l 1 PAGE FIFTEEN Gilbert Friesen Gilbert is a tall, blond gentleman and the be-spec tacled genius of our class. If anyone has some ma¬ thematical problem, he is ready to solve them. Dur¬ ing the second term election campaign Gilbert re¬ vealed his poetical talent, and has been dubbed “poet-laureate” of the S. C. I. Now he takes order for poems to suit any occasion. Being musically in¬ clined, he takes and gives piano lessons after school hours. He may not star on the rugby field, but he certainly shines in Composition. Though of a tacit¬ urn nature his speeches make sense and reveal the thinker. We are quite confident that he will not bury his talents, for he intends to take several years of university training. Gordon Kreutzer Gordon is one of our more sports-minded students with a friendly personality and a liking for jokes. He takes an active part in extra-curricular activi¬ ties and has been class representative both terms. Though he tries to keep up with his homework oc¬ casionally it is not done. He excells in physics and maths. One of his most used expressions is, “That’s right.” He has a lot of ambition but hasn’t decided what he will do in the future. Shirley Rempel Shirley is a tall, comely, young lady with a friend¬ ly disposition. Gifted with a fine soprano voice, and being musically inclined, she has often served as soloist at Christmas and Easter programs. Shirley participates in many activities, having served as treasurer for the Student Council of both terms, as well as the Assistant Editor of the Collegian and class representative on the literary committee. Her hobbies are reading and skating. As to her plans for the future — she intends to continue and round out her education at a Bible school. Helen Paley This dark, dimpled young lady usually wears a smile which makes her quite attractive. Her home is in Pansy, and she has been with us for two years. Her friendly disposition helps her to make friends easily and she keeps them too. Jokes, funny or otherwise, are always sure to be supported by her hearty laugh. Helen has a very important posi¬ tion in our school, and her absence causes anxiety and apprehension in class — you see, she is our of¬ ficial bell-ringer. She is not quite decided as to her future, but next year may find her in Normal School to prepare for teaching. PAGE SIXTEEN Ernie Toews Ernie is a tall fellow who occupied a seat in the back of the room and enjoyed “needling” Sylvia. He participates in numerous sports including football hockey, curling, and crokinole. He also took part in the Manitoba High School Bonspiel. Being a sports enthusiast, he served on the Sports Committee dur¬ ing the second term. He enjoys playing the trumpet in his spare time. Considering his interest for work¬ ing with electrical appliances, we may well assume that his career will be along that line. Henry Pankratz Henry has been attending the Steinbach Collegiate since Grade X. He finds pleasure in the solving of mathematical puzzles. Active in sports, he partici¬ pated in the Manitoba High School Curling Bonspiel. Class humorist that he is, we can envision him as future television comedian. Seriously though, he plans possibly to teach for a year and then to begin studies for the position of a chartered accountant. Though he is tall, Henry is usually heard before he is seen. He is one of the prime movers of class-room activities. Anne Wiebe Annie is a quiet, hard-working student. A sport enthusiast, she particularly enjoys baseball and hockey games. She missed one year of school be¬ fore returning to complete Grades XI and XII. She likes knitting, reading, symphony, and baking choco¬ late cakes. Some day, she will be a very sufficient nurse. She plans to enter training right after her completion of Grade XII. Although she takes her work seriously, she does not lack a lively sense of humour. Among her favourite subjects in school are Drama and Poetry and Novel and Composition. Martha Block The ray of sunshine in our class is Martha. Upon her entrance into the classroom she dispels gloom. She takes active part in class discussions and wil¬ lingly offers her own opinions. For the first term she capably served as class represen tative and as social convenor. For the second term she was re¬ elected social convenor and Student Council secre¬ tary. Martha had a year of teaching experience be¬ fore she enrolled for Grade XII and found it enjoy¬ able. She plans to attend Normal School next fall and thereafter become a school “marm”. Her cheer¬ ful nature will certainly help her to succeed in that vocation. PAGE SEVENTEEN Walter Schroeder Walter is a friendly chap, with a deep bass voice and a pleasing personality. His dark wavy hair is always well groomed. He is quite often seen com¬ ing to school in his Dad’s Plymouth. Good at sports, he specializes as a quarterback in rugby. German to him is an easy subject, but still he claims he doesn’t like it. He has not definitely decided what he will do after h e graduates, but his interests lie in the field of aviation. Robert Shelby Robert comes from Arnaud and manages to get home only about once every three weeks. He is short, dark, and quiet. Although he does not waste many words, his answers prove that he is a deep thinker. Robert is a conscientious student and usually has all his assignments well done. His fa¬ vourite pastime is reading. He enjoys sports, like curling, skating, and hunting. He is not sure about his future plans, and at present is interested in joining the air-force. Shirley Churchill Shirley comes from Piney where she received her previous schooling. She is a quiet girl but is very friendly. Her favourite subjects are Drama and Poetry. Shirley takes her Grade XI French by cor¬ respondence. Her hobby is reading. During recesses she is often seen with Martha Goertzen. Shirley goes home with the Fort Francis bus but her Dad has to bring her back early Monday morning. “Is she any relation to Winston Churchill?” “Sure he’s her brother!” (That is, a young Winston at Piney) Shin«v nians to become a teacher. Sylvia Rieger Sylvia is a blue-eyed lass who lives across the street from the school. She is a hard working young lady, who always has her school work done. She ex¬ cels in mathematics, but does not like chemistry. Her favorite hobbies are skating and reading. She is the Grade XII class representative, secretary of the I. S. C. F. organization, and the editor of the Yearbook. You always find Sylvia in the thick of things when such events as socials, play-perfor¬ mance, Christmas or Easter programs or just plain MacLean Hunter campaigns are brewing. This ex¬ plains why she has no time to get into mischief. PAGE EIGHTEEN John Goossen John lives on the outskirts of town, and so he has quite a walk every morning. He manages to coin¬ cide his walk to school with Ken Oswald’s drive, thus speeding up his arrival. Being of a cheerful disposition, he takes most everything as a joke. “That’s easy’’, is his pet expression. Beware of his smile, for it’s catching. His dreamy look is deceiv¬ ing, for when it comes to ‘brass tacks’, John knows his “stuff”. His hobbies are reading and stamp col¬ lecting. If his ambitions for the future materialize, he may visit town businesses as accountant some day. Martha Goertzen Martha is a tall and friendly lass, who decided to return to the Collegiate and finish her last two years of high school after a year’s absence. Coming from Lorette, she prefers the country to the town. Of the sports Martha favors curling. In school her favourite subject is German, at which she shows considerable skill. Her plans for the future are to attend Normal School and then to enter the teaching profession. Virginia Brown Virginia is one of our attractive looking students who is blessed with lovely brown hair and a charm¬ ing smile. Her quiet but congenial personality makes her presence delightful. Meticulously and conscien¬ tiously she prepares her assignments. We are proud of her, for she ranks first in class. Reading and sketching are her hobbies. Being gifted in sketch¬ ing, she serves as artist on the Yearbook Commit¬ tee. She intends to take University training and to specialize in scientific research. The calibre of her work during her years in Junior and Senior High School augurs well for her and we are confident that she will make a success of further studies. Kenneth Oswald Ken is generally known as “Ozzie”. He comes from the country and drives back and forth every day. Though he is but seldom heard in class, he is always seen, as he is one of the taller members of our room. This is the third year he is with us, and his friendly disposition and pleasing personality make him well liked by teachers and classmates. In his studies he is fair. History is a favourite subject, but Maths he cannot much appreciate. His ambitions for the future he has not divulged to us. PAGE NINETEEN Glenn Keating Glenn is a friendly fellow always ready to lend a helping hand, whenever one is needed. He enjoys his four mile homeward journey each day. Occasion¬ ally he has been known even to walk it. Scholastical¬ ly, Glenn prefers English. Glenn’s hobbies include sketching and oil painting in addition to letter writ¬ ing. We understand he corresponds with no less than a dozen pen-pals. As for a future vocation, Glenn is undecided though the scope of a possible choice ranges from a farmer to a world traveller. Arlyn Reimer Arlyn is a well liked, friendly girl, who is known as Kathy by her friends. She has represented our class on the Sports Committee for both terms this school year. She has also been class representative on the Year Book Committee, and has served as the secretary of the same. Her hobby is collecting stamps. In school she enjoys typing, but Maths is just too much for her. Arlyn plans to work next year and after that she wants to become a nurse. Warren Kroeker J Warren’s home is near Lorette. He has a friend¬ ly, happy-go-lucky nature, and boasts a brush-cut. He is a sports enthusiast, enjoying such athletics as football, hockey, and curling. Most of his time in school is spent in the Grade eleven room, but he takes German, History, and Drama and Poetry in Grade twelve. His pet peeve seems to be German. One of his jobs during the first term was to repre¬ sent the Grade XII’s on the Social Committee. War¬ ren may have an ambition, but his future plans are as yet unannounced. PAGE TWENTY 1.

He likes sports, his favourite being football. His ambition is to become a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force but he is undecided whether he will further his education. Mervin Brandt Merv takes an active part in sports and was the first term sports convenor. In the spring play he was one of the “odds” and “ends”. He is well liked and somehow finds the time to get his assignments done. Besides this he is a trumpeter in the lo¬ cal band. Jim Schellenberg Jim is a cheerful young man who thoroughly enjoys all out¬ door activities and spends much of his time at the curling rink. He seems to find no difficulty doing his physics problems. Clarence Mantie Clarence just loves a good joke, although sometimes it would be better if he didn’t. He is often heard stating his opini¬ ons during literature discus¬ sions. Stamp collecting is his hobby. Clarence Giesbrecht Clarence is fond of sports, particularly hockey and base¬ ball. He studies diligently and is rewarded accordingly in times of “testing”. His future beyond Grade XII is indefinite. James P. Penner James loves to read and is good at his schoolwork. Mathe¬ matics is his favourite subject and stamp collecting is his hob¬ by. He is fortunate enough to miss school some winter days when the roads are closed. Af¬ ter completing his education he would like to work in an office. Walter Hiebert Walter is called “Hiebert” by everyone. He drives from the farm every day. He’s a “jolly good fellow” and takes life easy, but intends to finish Grade XII. Maurice Pylypiuk Maurice lives in Trentham and comes to school in a car every day. His favourite subject is typing and his favourite oc¬ cupation is getting into quar¬ rels with Myron. He enjoys hunting and fishing. John Dyck John came back to school after a few years of absence. He takes an active part in sports. His favourite subject is German. When he is through school he wants to be an accountant. Myron Smuk Myron is a sports enthusiast, who enjoys playing hockey. He usually has his assignments done.

Memories As the school year closes And our worries o’er, We shall recall the pleasures, Which we will have no more. Those English classes bring to mind A host of various topics, From “Romeo and Juliet” To essays, poems and novels. Oh yes, and all those Mathematics classes By which our mind was to be trained. And yet, I do recall the time The elastic snapped, our mind was sprained. But oh, those dear old German periods When Schweitzer’s philosophy we learned The words! Their meanings such a chal¬ lenge, That oft the midnight oil was burned. To mind there come those History periods, When notes we took with unending zeal. But when the examinations were corrected. Our weak self-effort was revealed! The Chemistry course was the other subject, With its matter very explosive. Beside defining and experimenting, There was much formula composing. But we must hurry onward. The closing bell has rung! The echo of it brings to mind That our work here is done! Martha Block PAGE TWENTY-SIX even Erna Heier Erna is one of our out-of-town students.

Der Unterschied zwischen der kanadischen und der deulschen Schule Als ich im Dezember 1955 nach Steinbach kam, wusste ich schon durch Erzahlungen und Berichte, dass ich andere Schulverhalt- nisse vorfinden wurde. Bereits bei der Ein- schulung machte sich das fur mich bemerk- bar. Wenn in Deutschland ein Schuler von einer Stadt in eine andere kommt und damit die Schule wechseln muss, so ist seitens des Vaters eine schriftliche Anmeldung erfor- derlich, wobei auch die Abmeldung nebst Entlassungszeugnis von der alten Schule nicht fehlen darf. Hier wurde nichts von alle- dem von mir verlangt. In Deutschland gibt es die Volksschule, Oberschule und Universitat. Die Volksschu¬ le wird von der 1. bis zur 8. Klasse besucht, und dann kann man einen Beruf lernen. Aber wer die Oberschule besuchen will, der kann schon mit der 5. Klasse aus der Volks¬ schule austreten und weiter in die Ober¬ schule gehen. Diese hat 9 Klassen; am Schluss dieser 9 Klassen macht man sein Abi- tur und kann jetzt auf die Universitat gehen. gehen. Ein grosser Unterschied gegenuber der ka¬ nadischen Schule ist auch: In Deutschland hat man nicht die Moglichkeit (wie hier in Kanada), sein Studium in der Volks- oder Hochschule fur V 2 , 1 oder 2 Jahre zu unter- brechen. Die Schuljahre mussen dort nach- einander absolviert werden. Die Schulzeit ist in Deutschland bis 1 Uhr. Der Nachmittag ist frei. Das ist besser als in Kanada. Aber irgend ein Ausgleich muss ja da sein, und darum ist in Deutschland auch am Sonn- abend Schule. Schularbeiten sind in Deutsch¬ land mehr zu tun, weil es dort mehr Facher gibt. Ich hatte in der 10. Klasse schon 14 Facher: Deutsch, English, Franzosisch, Ma- thematik, Physik, Chemie, Biologie, Erdkun- de, Geschichte, Gemeinschaftskunde, Zeich- nen, Musik, Religion und Sport. In den obern Klassen werden es noch mehr. Davon sind 6 Hauptfacher, fur die man alle Tage zu ar- beiten hat. Die meisten deutschen Schulen besitzen kein ,,work shop” und auch keine Bibliothek, aber dafur eine Turnhalle. Im Winter wird Hallensport getrieben, im Som¬ mer Leichtathletik und Schwimmen. Zwei- mal im Jahr bekommt man ein Zeugnis, in welchem die Leistungen aufgezeichnet sind. • Ein weiterer Unterschied zwischen den kanadischen und deutschen Schulen besteht darin, dass in Deutschland Jungen und Mad- chen getrennt unterrichtet werden. In den oberen Klassen des Gymnasiums, das ich be- suchte, waren seit kurzem auch Madchen aufgenommen worden. Aber dies war bedingt durch den Mangel an Schulraum und ist im allgemeinen nicht ublich. Erst auf den Uni- versitaten sitzen mannliche und weibliche Kommilitionen gemeinsam im Horsaal. Alles in allem ist die kanadische Schule besser, weil ich zwei Jahre spare und es hier viel kameradschaftlicher und herrlicher ist. und herrlicher ist.

Margaret is her twin. Alfrieda, from upstairs Grade IX, is her good pal. Richard Letkeman That innocent expression and sweet smile can be quite deceiv¬ ing. He is usually planning some¬ thing. Ritchie dislikes homework, but manages to get it done, when his busy schedule allows it. Harold Funk Harold is a friendly, reliable person, whose aim it is to be a road engineer or a pilot. He holds a part time job — delivering pa¬ pers after four. Kenneth Letkeman Ken likes Shop and watching T. V. Those commercials provide time to get some more of that homework done. Too bad there aren’t more commercials. He oc¬ casionally helps his dad. Reading across, left to right: Neddy Smuk, Sophie Melnyk, Alvin Steingart, Lois Wiens, Peter Vogt, Deanna Enns.

His big ambition just now is to raise some marks considerably. He may operate a Steinbach-Warroad express line some day. Sophie Melnyk Sophie is the lassie that loves the good old western songs. She likes embroidery, she likes Eugenia, and she likes nurses. Her favourite expression is “Oh Man!” Alvin Steingart If the neat little freckles of Alvin Einstein Steingart would cooperate a bit more, what a love¬ ly Jack Canuck tan he would sport! Alvin likes work and he likes people, and his quarrels with Mervin are always quite, friendly. Lois Wiens Solving for x, ranking highest in class, and volunteering for any job that needs to be done, are just “matters of course” with Lois. She’s a natural for the ca¬ mera. Peter Vogt Peter loves music, curling, swimming, and school but main¬ tains that — “I don’t love girls” — yet. He will be a doctor but could be an actor. Deanna Enns Some day you’ll pick a “best seller” off the shelves and find the author to be Deanna Enns, if she has not changed her name. She has the vocabulary and the ambition to be a good writer. Irene Wiebe Irene is always listening when she can spare the time. Quite fre¬ quently she finds that she can spare it. She likes everybody and everybody likes her. Larry Tarasenko The mechanical engineering student gets ready. He knows Grade IX comes before university. Meet Larry in big power con¬ struction jobs seven years from now. Agnes Oswald Agnes is a person who does not like to argue. She gets along quite well without disagreements. Friedensfeld has sent us a fine student who cares about her work. Grade IX-2 Willie Nickel He can “coin” jokes and make mathematical hurdles. He cannot always figure out, how others can figure it out. His will power returns to him afterwards. Loreena Penner “Where there’s a will there’s a way”, and a will there is. She beats many a student when it comes to maths. She believes in the old virtue of getting assign¬ ments done properly. Raymond Wiebe Ray has an array of titles: the artist, the giant, the all around student and rugbyist. His future plans are not exa ctly mapped out yet, except that a good general schooling shall come first. Charlie Penner Charlie is made up of a vast amount of mirth, girth, and fun. He wears steel heels that click to 4 4 time ordinarily, and 2 4 after rugby. Charlie is a good salesman. Alfrieda Klassen We have a petite, and up-and- coming black-haired artist. Her name should have been Lois, or maybe Alfrieda Rembrandt. Gra¬ de IX seats are too big for her. Peter Wiebe Peter knows most of the ans¬ wers. If he cannot express them the way you would, well he ex¬ presses them. Being quite a dis¬ tance out of town, Peter “makes” the Piney, drift or shine, most of the time. Marjorie DeFoort Marjorie is our little bookworm from Giroux. She doesn’t go for arithmetic so much but you can¬ not blame her — she never in¬ vented it. Daniel McNeil Dan has long thought on the matter of the teacher shortage. Chances are he will come up with a solution. Dan reads so much that Spelling “almost” suffers. “Ah skip it” and “dare” are his favourite expressions. Margaret Thiessen South Junction may send us more fine students like Margaret. Miss Thiessen likes reading and people, and she loves a challenge. Well, that’s enough to make good, isn’t it? Eugenia Derbowka Her laugh is just like music It lingers in the heart And where its melodies are heard The ills of life depart. How’s that for a prospective, vi¬ vacious nurse? Mervin Unger Mervin used to play the harp with a rubber band, but he doesn’t any more. Mathematics comes natural with him. He plays dodge the ball in rugby. Rosie Friesen Little Miss Rosie has a sweet little undetected “lithp”. She sails on the ice as well as in Spelling and German. There’s really no¬ thing she cannot do. Gordon Schellenberg Meet the twinkle-eyed live wire of o»:r class. He’s a “guy” that will go places. Arnold thinks he’s good at jumping — to conclusi¬ ons. Helga Warkentin Helga is rather prominent in the class. Her giggle is contagi¬ ous; her jokes are rich; her marks are good; her day-dream¬ ing eyes —. Reginald Toews “Shorty” looks down on all of us from “up there”, and queries “How’s the weather down be¬ low?” Well, we look up two yards to a congenial smile and shout: “How rare the stratosphere!” Roman Pilypiuk Roman of course won’t tell us. but he’s getting ready for some¬ thing. Neddy knows, but he would not tell either. Maybe it’s dentist¬ ry! Ouch! Well the Conservatives may soon be in need of him. Arnold Reimer Arnold has too many hobbies to be able to pick a favourite. Maths is one of them, cartooning is an¬ other, and radiating a pleasant and willing desposition is surely a third. His ambition really is to become a “sigh-chologist”. Betty Reimer Here trains the future secreta¬ ry of the Premier or maybe of the Prime Minister. She doesn’t mind asking questions. She likes sports and should have joined the Olympics to represent Canada. Johnny Wohlgemuth Farming is going scientific and Johnny knows it. That’s why he studies. When you hear “You’re cracked” then Johnny is not far away. Jake (Bob) Schellenberg Bob likes to sketch Hitler, Bis- mark and Borgia from Italy. He’s a good-looking little mixer. You can call him Jake or you can call him Bob, but you can be sure that he’ll do the job! PAGE THIRTY-EIGHT CORE :Mr . ' . ■ ' v- 1 - f • .

Seminar Report July 12 - 16, 1955 saw approximately 110 young people from high schools in Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario converging on the Fort Garry campus of the University of Manitoba for the third annual United Na¬ tions Seminar. Sylvia Rieger and I had the privilege of representing the S.C.I. at this Seminar. The Seminar was sponsored by the Winni¬ peg Branch of the United Nations Associa¬ tion in Canada and by the Department of University Extension and Adult Education of the University of Manitoba. The purpose of the Seminar is to teach young people of Canada about the work of the U.N. in the world today, and to equip them to further the work of the United Nations. Lectures on the Work of the U.N. were given by various well-informed speakers, twice daily. One of the main speakers at the Seminar was Mrs. A. L. Caldwell, B.Sc. who was one of the memb ers of the Canadian delegation to the eighth General Assembly of the U.N. Through the lectures and the discussions which followed, we learned that the United Nations is seeking to prevent a World War by ridding the world of the four “germs” of war: hunger, disease, poverty, and ignorance.

Social Committee Report The Social Committee has enjoyed plan¬ ning the socials and they in turn have been enjoyed by the students. “Hallowe’en, Hallowe’en, Jolly Hallowe’en!” was the theme of our first social. The evening con¬ sisted of a short skit and various games among which was the side-splitting per¬ formance of commercials. After a delightful lunch the social ended, thus allowing the students to venture out into the haunted night. Another social was the Christmas party. Due to a very busy pre-Christmas week, the social took place after the last performance of “The Lost Carol.” Gifts, Christmas carols and confectionery were the main course of the evening. On February 17, we enjoyed a skating party which was complete with hot dogs, fine music, and a warm stove. The highlights of the evening were a broomball game and a girls’ hockey game. The close of the school year concludes the committee’s various duties such as provoking our students to laughter and filling their stomachs with delicacies. —Martha Block PAGE FORTY-THREE Literary Committee Standing: Charlie Penner, Johnny Barkman, Gordon Kreutzer, Glenn Klassen. Sitting: Joyce Smith, Shirley Rempel, Miss N. Rempel, Pat Mueller (convenor), Hildegarde Enns, Gracie Kliewer. Inset: Pat Mueller (1 st term convenor). Literary Committee Report The Literary Committee has enjoyed a successful year. We have completed two ma¬ jor projects. In November we organized a Literary which we presented to the student body. First on the programme was a debate. After weighing the arguments of the speakers carefully, the judges agreed that “Education Increases Happiness.” The debate was follow¬ ed by a contest and a vocal trio. The main item of this programme was the S.C.I. inter¬ pretation of Sir Walter Scott’s poem “Loch- invar”. This bold, daring, young knight, with broadsword in hand, provoked the audience to constant laughter. Even though we realiz¬ ed no financial gain from this literary, we certainly tabled it as a success. During the second term we were faced with the difficulty of selecting our spring play. Finally teachers and students agreed upon presenting J. M. Barrie’s “The Admirable Crichton.” Since three of the four Acts of this play had different settings, much addi¬ tional work was required. Then too, the stage was enlarged, and new, movable walls were installed. Mr. John Peters consented to over¬ haul the stage and build the stage properties. The play is a satirization of the class dis¬ tinctions which were preserved in England. The satire plays continually upon the conceit of Ernest Woolley (Richard Barkman), the futility of Lord Loam (Travis Reimer), and the servility of Crichton (Glenn Klassen). In¬ cluded in the cast were Lord Loam’s three daughters, Agatha, Catherine and Mary Las- enby (Joyce Smith, Grace Reimer, and Pat Mueller), the Loam servant, Tweeny (Hilde¬ garde Enns), the athletic clergyman, Tre- herne (George Rieger), and the arrogant La¬ dy Brocklehurst (Martha Block) and her son, Lord Brocklehurst (Jake Epp). The audiences were impressed with the elaborate stage settings and the acting ability the charac¬ ters presented. The committee was pleased with the re¬ sults obtained from each literary undertak¬ ing. PAGE FORTY-FOUR Collegian Staff Standing: Marjorie Steel, Gilbert Friesen, Edmer Reimer. Sitting: Shirley Rempel, Henrietta Reimer (editor), Mr. N. Toews, Pat Mueller. Inset: Henrietta Reimer (1st term editor). The Collegian Report It is a delight to make a mental survey of the Collegian activities of the past year. The members of the staff have so willingly con¬ tributed their time and talents that it has been a pleasure to work with them. Indus¬ triously they have been writing articles to give students a glimpse of general activities of our collegiate. Articles which have been written are as follows: editorials, general news, sports, social, and literary activities, and last but not least, anecdotes by our faith¬ ful Pat. We trust that these articles have served to give our parents and fellow- citizens a true picture of the calibre and standard of the students and school respec¬ tively. Now it is our pleasure to thank those who have supported our staff by faithfully reading the Collegian and expressing appre¬ ciation for our efforts. For a number of us in the staff it means farewell. This is the last year that we serve on a Collegian such as this. But we are confident that those who will serve on the staff in the future, shall not dis¬ appoint us. On the contrary, they shall present, each year, a bigger and better Collegian. —Henrietta Reimer PAGE FORTY-SIX Sports Committee Standing: Mervin Brandt, Mr. H. Reimer, Thelma Funk, Peter Vogt, Mr. G. Reimer, Arlyn Reimer. Sitting: Joyce Smith, Raymond Loewen, Travis Reimer (convenor), Ernie Toews, Phyllis Penner. Inset: Mervin Brandt (1st term convenor). Sports Report The sports activities of the S.C.I. were ben¬ eficial from three standpoints—participation, enjoyment, and inter-school competition. During the football season teams were or¬ ganized and games taking up two recesses each were played. The all-star team which was chosen, proved itself in a number of games, winning all of them, including two against Goodwill High. The girls were less fortunate in their baseball games wit h Good¬ will, winning one, and losing one. In two hockey games, played against our perennial rival, the S.C.I. team triumphed both times. The boys managed to come through with a 6-5 win in a thrilling game played in Grun- thal. In a return game at the carnival, held February 17, Goodwill went down to a 6-1 defeat. Curling, as usual, captured much of the sports spotlight this year. There were seven rinks participating in the regular high school curling schedule. Again, this year a bonspiel was held in which Henry Pankratz and Ernie Toews captured the first and se¬ cond events respectively. Sports equipment was not lacking as the Student Council provided a substantial a- mount of money for that purpose. Three rugby balls and a volley ball were purchased. The school hockey team looked especially sharp this season attired in the uniforms, ac¬ quired with council funds. Looking back, it seems quite evident that sports at the S.C.I. enjoyed a successful year in 1955-56. PAGE FORTY-SEVEN I. S. C. F.

Inter-School Christian Fellowship The Inter-School Christian Fellowship of the Steinbach Collegiate Institute is part of a world-wide organization comprised of Un¬ iversity and high school students, student nurses, and student teachers under the lead¬ ership of a large and capable staff. The aim of the Fellowship, “To know Christ and to make Him known”, sets the pace for its various activities. The importance of personal quiet time— concentrated Bible reading and prayer — and group Bible study, is emphasized as vital to knowing Christ. To make Him known, we are encouraged and instructed in our daily walk and talk to reflect Christ, that it may be said of us, as it was of Peter and John, “and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” As a group of thirty to fifty, we have met weekly on Wednesday after four. Our pro¬ gram has included guest speakers, panel discussion, talks by fellow students, and a series of student-led Bible studies of the gospel of St. Luke, for which we divided into smaller groups. We have generally closed our meeting by separating into small groups for prayer. Special events on our calendar were the fall social, complete with games, singing, testimonies and chili-con-carne, and a tally- ho, followed by a wiener roast in the snow. All students are invited to share in the aims, activities, and beliefs of the I.S.C.F. PAGE FORTY-EIGHT The Lost Carol The Christmas Cantata-Drama rendered this year was “The Lost Carol”, a moving story of the events leading to the writing of the most beloved of all Christmas Carols, “Silent Night.” His wayward son has brought shame and bitterness to the name and life of Franz Gruber, former organist and choirmaster, so that he can no longer compose any worth¬ while music. On Christmas eve the prodigal returns in penitence. The father’s struggle to overcome his bitterness and forgive is aid¬ ed by the pleas of the mother, the frank advice of the village choirmaster and by a vision in which appear the scenes of “The Prodigal Son”, “The Good Samaritan” and the “Nativity”. The climax is reached when the father, waking from his dream, welcomes and forgives his penitent son and is rewarded by the recapture in his heart and mind of the music of the beautiful “Stille Nacht” which has been lost since the time when his son disgraced his home and name. The part of Gruber was admirably portray¬ ed by Glenn Klassen, Frau Gruber by Eliza¬ beth Neufeld, the choirmaster by Travis Rei- mer, and the son by Reginald Toews. The drama was directed by Mr. John Pe¬ ters. Miss Norma Rempel was in charge of costumes. The Collegiate Choir was led by Mr. Ernie Friesen. PAGE FORTY-NINE The Chief Needs of Our Town Steinbach is a little town on the edge of the great Canadian prairies. It is just forty miles south-east of Manitoba’s capital, Win¬ nipeg. Though it is located in a farming belt, you need only go a few miles east to en¬ counter forest and lake. The population of Steinbach is steadily incre asing, and has now almost reached the three thou¬ sand mark. Already, in 1947, Steinbach had grown to the required population for it to become an incorporated town. Steinbach’s rising prominence among the towns of Mani¬ toba, is due to its progressive and enthusiastic spirit. Business is kept alive and attractive by the fine developments that have taken place in this field. The fine residences, lawns, and well-kept streets make Steinbach plea¬ sant to visit and enjoyable to live in. In spite of these fine developments, Stein¬ bach is still in need of some civic improve¬ ments. On many of Steinbach’s streets, there are no sidewalks yet and other provisions for pedestrians are not what they should be. The streets are fairly good, but to make them entirely satisfactory, many more should be paved. An improvement in telephone equipment is also made necessary by the rising importance of Steinbach business. This improvement has been promised, but time is needed to bring the plans to maturity. An¬ other public utility which Steinbach needs, and which has been discussed for a long time, is waterworks and sewage disposal. This would solve water and sewage problems for individual home-owners and would sup¬ ply a source of water to combat house fires. Besides the needs mentioned above, every town must have places where the townspeo¬ ple can play together and enjoy themselves. The specific needs of Steinbach along this line are a hockey arena and a swimming pool. Present conditions make it an ordeal to watch a hockey game. The town needs a place where the townspeople can gather to cheer on the home team, thus strengthening good will and cooperation among the people. Swimming is an excellent sport in which al¬ most everyone can take part. This favorite summer sport should be encouraged by building a public swimming pool. This would not only give the “team” the pleasure of playing, but everyone could use the swim¬ ming pool for his own pleasure. The cultural needs of Steinbach are also worth discussing. Every community should have places where the people can appreciate the cultural arts such as music and drama, and also a place where the young people can develop these skills. The greatest need in the field of education in Steinbach is a new Collegiate. A great demand for a high school education by the young people of the town has made this necessary. Next in im¬ portance to this development, I think is the need for a public library. I think it would be well used and appreciated by the people of Steinbach. Another need which Steinbach is facing is the need for an auditorium. In this auditorium the finer arts such as music, drama, and art could be appreciated. The future of this little prairie town, Stein¬ bach, seems bright and promising. Business is expected to rise as sharply as it has in the last few years. This would bring Steinbach added prosperity and would improve the general conditions in the town. The national importance of Steinbach has increased great- lv in the last few vears. If this continues, Steinbach can become a very important fac¬ tor in the industrial and agricultural life of Manitoba, and even of Canada. Glenn Klassen — Grade XI Religious Periods Our activities and studies of each week have found a fitting close in the Friday after¬ noon religious periods. Here, in the study of God’s Word, in worship, in the challenge of messages from guest speakers, and in pic¬ tures presenting the need and work in many areas of the world, we have had fellowship together and turned our thoughts and hearts to the Creator and the things of God. Guests have included Rev. William Thomp¬ son of the Latin America Mission. Miss Agnes Carmichael of Child Evangelism Fellowship, Mr. Lloyd Wiebe of Pacific Coast Children’s Mission, Rev. John Koop of Sudan Interior Mission, Rev. Sherman Williams of Scripture Press, Rev. Allan MacLeod of Gospel Mis¬ sionary Union, Rev. Wm. Peters, Stuartburn, Mr. Wilbert Loewen, Rev. Archie Penner, Rev. H. G. Rempel, Rev. Jacob Epp, Rev. Peter Martens, and others. The services of these men and ladies are deeply appreciated. PAGE FIFTY Activities PLAY UP! PLAY UP!
