Upon entering the city limits of Sumner one is immediately attracted to the large, wrought
iron sign which reads "Sumner, Washington, the Bulb Center of the West. " As one of the
principal industries of the valley,. local bulb raising 'ls over thirty years old and engages
more than 1 , 000 people from every part of this area. The prosperous, bulb industry not only
affects individuals, but it penetrates deep into other industries and companies all over the
world. Each year over 20 million daffodils and daffodil bulbs are shipped to points throughout
the United States and also to many foreign countries. By far the most famous of the bulbs
raised here in the valley is the beautiful, golden King Alfred daffodll.
As a climax to the two months' daffodil season the annual Daffodil Week, which includes
the famous Daffodil Parade, is held in early April. Over the years the parade has become
much better publicized until now the Daffodil Festival of the Puyallup Valley ranks as one of
the largest and most colorful celebrations in America.
Because the daffodil so typifies Sumner, we the members of the annual staff felt it only
fitting to choose a daffodll therne for the 195.6 Spartan as a tribute to the "Golden Valley, "
the beautiful Sumner valley, which each spring literally glows from the thousands of golden
daffodils which luxuriously adorn the landscape.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd--
A host of golden daffodils,
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle in the Milky Way,
They stretched in neverfending line
Along the margin of a bay: F
Ten thousand saw I, at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

JUNIOR HIGH PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS SENIOR HIGH PRINCIPAL
Mr. Evans Carlson Mr. Clayton Willard Mr. Arne Strand
Were it not for the capable guidance and sincere efforts of the Sumner School Administration,
we the students would without doubt be deprived of many privileges we now enjoy--such as, the
facilities of the recently new shops and Maple Lawn Grade School and most of all, the new P.E. -
Music Building. Through the leadership and foresight of the men who comprise the administration,
future plans are being made for better, more modern school facilities, which include a new junior
or senior high school and a new athletic field.
Comprising the School Administration are the School Board, the Superintendent, and the school
principals. The School Board, which consists of six men, is headed by Fred Henry. Under the
supervision of the superintendent, Mr. Clayton E. Willard, are four principals: Mr. Arne Strand,
senior high school: Mr. Evans Carlson, junior high school: Mr. Robert Miller, Wade Calavan
Grade School: and Mr. Jack Burns, Maple Lawn Grade Schoolt
Those are the men who stood an endless vigilance over Sumner Schools and the students therein
in order to provide the students with the most up-to-date school facilities, classroom materials,
and above all, individual guidance and friendship. The latter is perhaps the most predominate
reason why the students of Sumner gained so much both scholastically and otherwise from the time
they spent"ln Sumner Schools.
School Board: Mr. R. vauqhan, Mr. c. wluard, Mr. r. Henry,
Mr. P. Benton, Mr. A. P. Riddell, Mr. E. Hansen.
