TAMA HIGH SCHOOL TAMA, IOWA
Welcome to Iama High School and a trip through the year 1958 59 We the Iuka staff
hope you enjoy our efforts at recording the events of the year
We snapped pictures sold ads argued over covers and suggested the impossrble to our
photographer Time was wasted and tempers flared During the sales campaign we begged
and threatened trying to out do each other and wm a free book We complained to the pub
lisher and worried over finances and lay outs After all this we finally came up with a yearbook
The layout of this year s book IS in a different form from previous years You will find that
they occurred We sincerely hope that some of those precious moments of the school year have
been recaptured in the 59 Iuka

The basketball squad finished in a triple tie for the South Iowa Cedar League championship
this year with Sigoumey and Montezuma. This is the fourth consecutive year that Tama has
won or shared the title. No other school in the conference has ever accomplished this. Tama
won 10 games and lost two in conference play. Ta.ma's overall record was 17 wins and 6 losses.
The basketball team also won a sectional championship this year. Tama's sectional was one
of the toughest in the state. They had to defeat St. Patrick's of Cedar Rapids and Keystone on
the way to the championship. Tama was eliminated in the first round of the district by a red-
hot Montezuma squad which made it to the state tournament. This was the second year in a row
that Tama was eliminated by a team which reached the state tournament.
Tama placed four boys on the first two conference teams. Six players were elected to each
conference team, with no regard for the player's position. Pete Zhome and Allan Youngbear
were first team selections. Pete and Allan also received an honorable mention on one of the all-
state teams. Larry Rifile and Pat Skala made the second team.
The normal starting lineup for Tama was Petelhome and Larry Riffle at the Guard positions,
team captain, Dennis Sernotan and Allan Youngbear at the forward slots, and Pat Skala at center.
However, several substitutes filled in very capably and started several ball games when starters
were sick or injured. Bud Wiese played a great deal at all of the positions during the course of
the season. Bob Brecht filled in as forward and center several times. Jerry Potter played center
when Pat Skala became hampered by fouls. Roger Pagel and David Oldbear shared a guard slot
during the first Toledo game when Larry Riffle was bothered by a sprained ankle. David Peters
came in at a guard spot during the hetxic closing minute of the Keystone game. Seniors Quentin
McCune and David Garrels hustled and helped the team in practice, although they saw little action
in the games.
In individuals departments Pete Zhorne led the team in scoring, Pat Skala grabbed the most
rebounds, and Larry Ribble had the most assists.
Coach Carey points out that the team hit only 36670 of its shots from the field, which is not
a very high percentage in basketball now. He says that Tama's great spirit and tough defensive
play were what made possible the team's success.

"Willy, the Worm" and "From Pillar to Post" or "How to Raise a Dog" will probably always hold
a place in the memories of Sally Kriegel and John Lewers. With these selections, they won I's in the
state speech contest held April 2,3, and 4 in Grinnell.
Janet McRoberts and Sam Salomone entered in interpretive reading and radio speaking respectively.
'Ihey each received a H rating in the state contest.
This was indeed a wonderful year for speech at T.H.S. Mr. Albert French did a tremendous job
directing all the speech activities.
Rebuttal? What's a rebuttal? This word had Pearl Metcalf and Sharlene Lenhart, the newest members
of Mr. Pettengill's debate team stumped more than any other. Pearl and Sharlene joined veteran debaters
Novie White and Joe Duffy for a year devoted mainly to becoming acquainted with the world of Debate.
Pearl and Sharlene performed the duties of the affirmitive side, and Joe and Novie the negative side.
The Debate Contest was held at Waterloo. The debaters, with no previous experience, came up with
a win and four losses for each team. Mr. Pettengill contemplates a great future for his young sophomore
Joe Duffy, Sharlene Lenhart, Mr. Pettengill, Novie White, Pearl Metcalf.

The juniors, under the direction
of Mr. Alben French, presented the
Emmy award winning play, "Dino" in
a two night stand which was successful
not only to the tune of 35225, but also
in loads of enjoyment for both the
participants and the audience.
"Dino," an adaptation by Reginald
Rose from a presentation on "Studio
One" is a timely drama of juvenile
delinquency in a big city.
The plot centers around Dino
Falcaro fSam Salomonep a boy just back
from spending four years in the state
reformatory for participating in arob-
bery -murder at the age of twelve, and his
difficult adjustment to society.
His parole officer, Mr. Mandel

James Street Settlement House, namely
a psychotherapist, Mr. Sheridan Gerry
Pottery the receptionist, Jackie fFaith
Lewisj and Miss Haines fCarolyn Suchyj
try to help him. On the other hand, his
parents never take the time to try to
understand him and his father even goes
so far as to "belt" him and tell him
never to go back to the settlementhouse.
The plot is deepened by the pre-
joined a gang called the Silk Hats. The
Silk Hats want Dino to lead a robbery
of a filling station.
No dramatic play being really com-
plete without a touch of romance, Shirley

Everything comes out right because
of a simple gesture on the part of Mr.

and leaves him saying, "Have a ball,

An ever-memorable trip to the windy city of Chicago marked the last stop for 13 seniors on a jour-
ney which started from Initiation Junction, and made stops at such points as Homecoming, Class Plays,
Sophomore Servers, Junior Prom -Planning, Senior Banquet, and Graduation. Although only a fourth of
the class braved the winds, high prices, and heavy traffic of America's only inland seaport, this group
showed enough enthusiasm for a class of 80 students. From departure to return the trip was eventful in
every minute of its three-day existence.
