MISS MARY K CLEMENS
To be a lnttle kindlier
With the passing of each day
To leave but happy memories
As I go along my way
To use possessions that are mine
ln service full and free
For larger good to be
To give of love in lavish way
That friendship true may live
To be less quick to criticize
More ready to forgive
To use such talents as I have
That happiness may grow
To take the bitter with the sweet
Assured tis better so
To be quite free from self intent
Whate er the task I do
To help others faith stronger grow
In all that s good and true
No matter how things run
To work play pray and trust
Until the tourney s done
God grant me the strength of heart
Of motive and of wall
To do my part and falter not
His purpose to fulfill
To sacrifice the trivial things To keep my faith in God and right

In the fall of 1956 THS was honored wrth the

For the first time, Willi Gym was designated as
the site for the Prom and many said we couldn't fix
up such a huge place, but in one week it was trans-
formed into an oriental paradise.
Multi-colored streamers formed a ceiling, while at
one end of the gym was a large beautiful mural of
Mt. Fuiiyama, painted by Kenneth Korte.
Refreshments were served in a teahouse by two
sophomores, dressed as Japanese servants. The king
and queen were crowned on a bridge, while the
band was located on the stage behind the bridge.
The evening opened with the traditional banquet,
which was held at the Presbyterian Church, then
came the Prom. All in all, it was a night to remem-
ber for years to come.
Before the year was over, TO members of the
class were selected for National Honor Society, while
16 were awarded the Scholastic T, presented for the
first time in the eastern Wyoming and western Ne-
Shirley Meininger handled the iob of president,

Donna Rae McHale, Kay Wiand, Sharon 'Meininger and
Shirley Meininger were Torrington's representatives at the
1959 Girls' State. Later, Donna Rae was named to represent
Wyoming at Girls' Nation.
September, 1959 found us reaching our long-
awaited goal-we were seniors! Out of 123 fresh-
men, our number had dwindled to lO6.
First on the agenda was the battle for Student
Council president, with Dean Johnson edging out
Lonny Rawlings. Then we re-elected Sharon Mein-
inger to the post of class president, while Ray Lapp
was named vice-president, Karen Porter was elected
secretary and Dave Lundgreen returned as treasurer.
Once again Mrs. Marian Ayars was named head
sponsor for our class, assisted by Al Butterfield, Carrol
Butts and Paul Boucher.
lt was a busy fall, annual pictures, Homecoming,
Twirp Week, and finally the selection of our class
colors, flower and motto.
Winter brought concerts, Court Queen, new equip-
ment in the senior home room, on-the-iob training
for lo girls, plus the senior class play, "December
Then came spring with the Educational Tour, the
Junior-Senior Prom, and finally graduation. As time
goes on, the experiences we had in THS will be
among our fondest memories.

rington had another top team.

at Casper. They continued to shine throughout

role in Torrington iunior high. Under the di-
rection of Carroll Butts for the fourth straight
year, the band had 48 members.
The iunior high band has grown steadily
since Mr. Butts took over as instrumental music
instructor. From 28 members in his first year,
the group has nearly doubled.
This year's activities featured the annual
Winter All-School Concert in' late January,
which combined the grade school, iunior high
and senior high bands.
In March, the band took part in the South-
east District Junior High Music Festival at
Officers for the i959-60 school term in-
cluded: Mickey Zanoni, president, and Janet
Baumgartner, secretary. Serving on the band
council were Joan Backer, Cheryl Crossley,
Mike Muhm and Mike Warren.

The past school year has been a busy but
enioyable one for members of the Torrington
iunior high school choir.
Last year the practice of having a large
choral group was discontinued and TJHS stu-
dents were limited to small vocal groups.
However, under the direction of Jerry Miller,
serving his first year in the local system, the
choir was reorganized and played an important
role in the school's list of extracurricular ac-
The choir opened its calendar by singing
Christmas carols in the halls of THS on Dec. 22.
In March, the group traveled to Guernsey
for the annual Southeast District Junior High
Next on the agenda was a spring concert
in early May, while the final appearance was at
the eighth grade promotion exercises.
The boys' quartet, featuring Steve Kurz,
John Nolan, Lonny Foreman and Mike
Griske, practices with Jerry Miller.

great year for Torrington's pep club, the Blaz-
lt was easy to identify a member of the
Blazerettes on the day of a game as the girls
scurried through the halls in their new uni
forms of white sweaters and maroon skirts
The girls performed for a number of foot
ball and basketball games at home and made
two trips as a group traveling to Laramie

ing the basketball season
For the first time an Honor Pep unit was
organized within the club Membership in this
group was limited to seniors and these gurls

mester, freshman girls were given the oppor-
tunity to sit in on the meetings but they could
not wear the uniform or participate in the
activities or business

The law of averages finally caught up with
Torrington as the Blazers dropped seven out
of nine games during 1959.
lt marked the first losing season for Coach
Al Butterfield, who had guided Torrington to
six straight state championship games prior to
the 1959 campaign.
After ruling the Southeast District scene for
six straight years and eight of the past nine,
the Blazers skidded to third while Douglas and
Lusk wound up as co-champions.
Riddled by graduation, the Blazers were
forced to field a green line that took the brunt
of a rugged schedule that featured five Class
AA non-conference foes.
However, Dean Johnson maintained Tor-
rington's monopoly on individual scoring
laurels in the SED as he tallied 37 points, while
teammate LeRoy Hare shared runner-up honors
Hare was named to the fullback spot and
Jim Matthews was named at tackle on the all-

downs to feature the Sheridan attack.
Torrington's deepest penetration came early
in the fourth when the Blazers drove 64 yards
before fumbling the ball away on the Bronc
BREAKS CHECK GAELS
Taking advantage of the breaks, a green Tor-
rington club upset St. Mary's of Cheyenne in
a l2-6 battle at Blazer stadium on Sept. ll.
Torrington's first break came early in the
initial period when Frenk Henning covered a
Gael fumble on the St. Mary's four. Three plays
later LeRoy Hare plunged over.
The Blazers made it l2-O late in the third
when Dean Johnson slashed over from the
one. Frank Rodriguez covered a Gael fumble
on the latter's 27 to launch the drive.
By the same token, St. Mary's recovered a
Blazer bobble on the Torrington nine and two
plays later John Manewal scored with 2.30
left in the contest.
Laramie scored its first win in four starts
when the Plainsmen romped to a 34-6 deci-
sion over Torrington on Sept. 25 at Laramie.
The Plainsmen scored in every quarter, grab-
bing a 14-O halftime edge and extending it to
28-O early in the third period.
Dean Johnson broke the ice for Torrington
late in the third when he scored on a 46-yard

downs, Casper had no trouble in notching a

DOUGLAS SHATTERS STREAK
Wyoming's longest prep winning streak
came to an end on Oct. 8 when the Douglas
Bearcats scored a 20-12 win over Torrington
on the Douglas turf.
Ironically, Douglas was the last conference
team to beat Torrington-a 19-14 upset in
1952. Since then, the Blazers compiled a 27-
game winning streak.
After the Bearcats grabbed a 7-O halftime
lead, Torrington bounced back in the third
for a 12-7 edge on a 4-yard plunge by Dean
Johnson and LeRoy Hare's 54-yard sprint.
Douglas turned an intercepted pass into a
touchdown late in the third and turned a fum-
ble into a touchdown drive early in the fourth
to wrap up the game.
INDIANS MAINTAIN JINX
Once again the Indian iinx hangs heavy
over Torrington as Cheyenne scalped the Blaz-
ers 40-7 in the Iatter's Dads' Night game on

pace as Cheyenne built up a 21-O halftime
lead and moved to a 28-0 edge early in the

strong directed a 61-yard drive and flipped
an 11-yard scoring pass to Ken Stimson. Arm-
strong hit Ron Keller for the extra point.

Lusk returned to the Southeast District
throne for the first time since 1949 when the
Tigers notched a 28-20 win at Torrington on

Blazers an early 7-0 edge, but Lusk forged
back to gain a 7-7 tie at the half and lead by
14-7 entering the final frame.
The hectic fourth saw LeRoy Hare shake
loose on a 39-yard sprint and Johnson plunge
over from the one as Torrington closed to 14-13
and 21-20 before Lusk finally wrapped it up.
WIN HOMECOMING FRAY
Long runs and a sharp passing attack offset
snow and freezing weather as Torrington rolled
to a 25-12 win on Oct. 30 in the Blazer's Home-
After Dick Lockman gave Wheatland a 6-0
lead, Dean Johnson returned the next kickoff
88 yards to pay dirt late in the first period.

Rodriguez and sprinted 40 yards, while LeRoy
Hare slashed over from the three as Torrington
moved to a 19-6 halftime.
An 11-yard pass from Rodriguez to Ron

third. Rodriguez hit 5-for-5 on passes for 134
ALLIANCE WINS FINALE
Turning three Blazer fumbles into touch-
downs and a 19-O first period lead, Alliance
went on to hand Torrington a 40-20 setback
in the season finale on Nov. 6 at Alliance.
