his life has been devoted to the interests and needs of boys and
girls. Buses, buildings, teachers, parents, workmen, salesmen,
architects, books, banquets-all these and more are the responsi-
bility of our superintendent of schools. One of the busiest men in
our community, he still has time to attend our games and dances,
to stop for a friendly word in the hall and cafeteria - actions
which reveal his deep and sincere interest in us. .lust as his devo-
tion and service to the students of Toppenish cannot be measured,
neither can our appreciation be fully expressed. In dedicating the
1956 Tohiscan to Mr. A. K. Temperley, we confer a well- deserved
honor. Thanks, Mr. Temperley, for your share in "The Time of Our

The class of '56 began their last year
at Top-Hi with Spence Barrett as class presi-
dent. Other officers were: Vice President,
Ellen Schmella, Secretary, Faye Arens,
ROW l: .lerry Booth, Dick
Ward, Spence Barrett.
ROW 2: Mr. Morin, Miss
Ross, Alair Sutton, Faye
Arens, Ellen Schmella,
"One, nine, five, six, who'll click, we'lI click. One, nine,
five, six, who'II click, we'lI click. One, nine, five, six,
who'll click, we'II click, Seniors."
Treasurer, Dick Ward, and Social Chair-
man, Alair Sutton. Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Morin,
and Miss Ross served as advisors.
A few of their many activities were at-
tending the College Conference, sponsor-
ing a couple of dances after games and
participating in many pep assemblies.
Graduation plans. occupied much of their
time, and announcements, exchange of
pictures, robes, colors, mottoes, and
speeches were a part of the year's prob-
lems. The group chose blue and silver for
their colors, with light blue for their robes,
"Not finished, iust begun," was their mot-
to, the rose was their choice of flower.
Janet Chase was chosen Homecoming
Queen and Sue Leming was the senior
princess. "The Patsy," the senior class play,
was presented November l8th. December
l6 was the date of the Senior Ball with
the -theme "White Forest," where Spence
Barrett and Dorothy Bittle became royalty
for the night. Spring highlights were the
Senior Award Assembly and Baccalaureate,
events which led to the night of May 24,
the conclusion of "The Time of Their Life"
for one hundred ten graduating Seniors.
"The Patsy" is a modern story of Cinderella, despised by
her mother and older sister, who after much turmoil finally
gained the respect of her family and won the man she loved.
This rollicking play was presented November l8 by the senior
closs under the direction of David Berg

A successful time ot the year was enioyed by all at the annual Senior
Ball, where the "White Forest" theme was carried out. The centerpiece was
of a doe and her fawn, with a huge white pine tree in the background. The
sides of the gym were edged with white trees, with one wall for a snow
scene painted by Spencer Barrett. A ceiling of white and blue hung with
snow flakes completed the dream-like scene.
General chairman was Louie McCord, assisted by his many chairmen.
For those who planned and attended the ball, December l6 will always be
present among memories of "the time of their lives."

his year Toppenish had a very success- one for e Wildcats, with a l ss to M r- '75
ful football season. Although they didn't win
all of their games, they were always fighting
for the glory of the school. They wanted to
make the school proud of them, and they did.
They lost the first game to Ellensburg, in
the last few minutes of the game, by a score
of 14-7. This loss didn't seem to hurt their
spirits at all. They scored a victory in the next
game 13-7. In the game with Naches, the
strength of the Wildcats came through with
a 27-19 victory. The next game was a high
scoring one with a win over Plosser, by 33-
25. ln a runaway game for the Wildcats
when they played Cle Elum, the score was
33-13. The Selah game ended up in the
hands of Top-Hi, with a final score of 13-O.
The Homecoming game proved to be a fatal
quette 13-6. In the final game of the season
with Wapato the Wildcats couldn't seem to
do anything and dropped the game with a
Louie McCord was taken out of the
Homecoming game with an iniury to his right
arm. He could not finish the season.
Three players made the All-Valley 2nd
team. Louie McCord rated in the backfield,
Durward Thetford as an end, and Larry An-
giano as All-Valley tackle.
Reo Clark was elected, by secret ballot,

The 1955-56 basketball season proved to be a successful one
for Top-Hi. Mr. Sam Mitchell, Top-Hi's new coach, brought the team
through the season to a tourney berth, where they lost the first game
to Wapato and were eliminated by Richland. This terminated a sea-
son which began with promise when Toppenish came out with a
respectable third place at the annual Wapato Jamboree.
The Wildcats began the regular season in a flurry with a win
over West Valley and then Prosser. Hopes were high when Top-Hi
met Grandview and proved to be the superior team that night. Selah
was the next opponent and was too hot for Top-Hi. Toppenish over-
came this loss and beat Naches. The team then went into a slump
and was beaten by Cle Elum, Marquette, Highland, and a second
game to Highland.
Again the Wildcats came out fighting against Prosser and
our favor. Selah came to Toppenish and with everyone on the edge
of their seats as the game went into overtime, Selah came out on
top by one point, 70-69. The next two games Top-Hi took with no
trouble over Noches and West Valley. After another spine-tingling
game, Top-Hi triumphed over Cle Elum, ol-60, and the spectators
went home as exhausted as the players. The night following, Mar-
quette saw Top-Hi outnumber them in rooters and scores in another
wild game which ended, 50-48.
Team and spectators will remember the '55-'56 season as one
of ups and downs, marked by three of the most exciting games in ,
the valley's year. For the five seniors on the A squad, Ron ,
. Thomas, Jim Meagher, Gene Tollefson, Louie McCord, and Q
Durward Thetford, their last year as high school hoopsters Q
rates high among the time of their lives. Ron, a Top-Hi f
2 Grandview and with the students behind them, tipped the scores in

. and Gene rating honorable mentions. Jim was ,

Gene Tollefson, ASB president, led the student
body government of Top-Hi through a very active
year. The Board of Control first sponsored a drive
to sell ASB's. The competition was between the three
classes, with the Junior Class winning the new trophy
that will be presented every year. The next campaign
was to promote neat school grounds. The Board of
Control also planned the Homecoming activities and
sponsored the March of Dimes Assembly. A proiect
to encourage good sportsmanship was carried out
and in the spring three one-act all-school plays were
Representatives from every class and club
worked with their advisor, Mr. Strom, to give their
fellow students "The Time of Their Lives."
BOARD OF CONTROL: ROW I: J. Carlton, S. Hardy, C.
Blttle, D. Hill, R. Hamilton, M. Shequln, G. Thomas.
ROW 2: Mr. Strom, A. Barnfleld, F. Arens, S. Stout.

ROW 4: S. Barrett, E. Schmella, J. Booth, R. Clark, D.
You, Class of l956, are now approach-
ing the close of a period often
thought of as "The Time of Your
Life." For the past few years,
you and your younger class-
mates have been old
"""'-we-M.. enough to do many
things on your own,
some good, some
of your age,
1 you have been
' excused by adults
for many of the fool-
ish things you've done.
Also, you have been
praised for many of your ac-
complishments, such as the fine
iob you did on the Senior Play and
the Senior Ball. The past few years,
and more surely the next few years, will
is determine whether you are going to be a
4 success. The motto that your class chose,
"Not finished, just begun", indicates that you
V do partially realize how to approach life, and
that you hope to use your high school experiences, in
class and out, as the basis for further achievements.
Take hold of life with a purpose. Labor earnestly, steadfastly, confidently with a good
goal in mind. The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their
industry, application, and perseverance, under the, uiding hand of a brave and, deter-
mined spirit. Good Luck, Class of '56.

You perhaps have noticed signs posted-
near clocks reading, "Time passes.
Will you?" When you do pass
from high school classes into the
world of adults, you will
probably look back on
the hours you spent in iii
high school as "The
Time ofYour Life."
time of your
life is really any
time and all time,
not necessarily your
high school days. Each
day you live can be a
part of the time of your life.
Time is a commodity which, if
used wisely, will grant you a rich,
satisfying life, significant not only to
you but to all who know you. Take time
to work a little, play a little, ponder a little,
and to take stock of yourself. A clock ticks,
and a moment of your life is gone forever. Has
it been worthy of you and the people who believe
in you? As your superintendent, I have truly enioyed iiii
having "The Time of My Life" with the class of '56 and
my best wishes go with them.

The Junior-Senior Prom and banquet was
presented April 20 with the theme "Shangri-
La." The Senior Service Award was presented
to Dick Ward at the banquet, recognizing his
activities to clubs, classes, faculty and school.
Outstanding features among the ballroom
decorations were two Oriental murals, a ter-
raced flower garden, and a beautiful water-
fall centered in a sparkling flower-covered,
moonlit rock garden.
Reigning over the Prom were Queen Wilma
Smith and King Durward Thetford. General
chairman of the Prom was Bonnie Higgins.
