A. F. BENNEST ARDEN IBSEN
Every organization must have a leader. He must be a man
capable of making many decisions. He must guide and direct the
course of the school, and yet he must be a man the students can trust
and confide in. Such a man is Mr. Bennest.
However, a good leader does not make an organization. There
must be the worker, the man who must carry into execution the decis-
ions ofthe leader, and the man who you know will do a superlative
iob. Such a man is Mr. lbsen.
We, the class of '53, therefore dedicate this annual to these
men who have worked so hard for the betterment of Vashon High

H. R. BARTON
By definition, music is a beautiful or pleasing
arrangement of sounds. What is pleasing to one
individual is not necessarily so for another. Some
find rest and comfort by the blending of instruments
in the rendition of a Beethoven symphony, others
will prefer a blues singer in the interpretation of a
Hogy Carmichael composition while others receive
satisfaction in a Harry James rendition of a iauy,
rhythmic composition. A very small percentage of
individuals find no inspirational effects in music.
Education is not universal in its effects and it is
good that it isn't. lf we all had the same degrees of
desires along the same line, society would cease to
exist in a very short time. We can't all be doctors
or engineers or common laborers. There must be the
designer and administrator as well as those who
perform the task of constructing or assembling. ln-
dividuals must be schooled in the various lines of
duty. It is the obligation of the school to partially
train the individual sa he will be equipped to accept
the responsibility that confronts him.
A. F. BENNEST
Of all the arts, music is perhaps the most uni-
versally accepted. Music is o part of our daily living.
The artists who thrill us and the musical ensembles
of top rank exemplify the highest type of devotion
lo the ideal of selfqsacrifice and the qualities of
teamwork that find a counterpart in the field of
education. Your school training is intended to make
you better fit to play your part in the responsibility
that you have to yourself and to society for successful
living and useful citizenship.
It is the hope of all those who have contributed
to your educational opportunities that you have
learned your part well ond that you will find a useful
expression of that learning in your future happiness.

The biggest and most important goal to a boy in
his high school career is to earn membership in the
Lettermen's Club. Any energetic boy who receives
a letter for a season of hard work and effort in
athletics is justified in being proud of his worthy
achievements and is undoubtedly entitled to mem-
bership in the organization.
This year the organization, consisting of 3l mem-
bers, under the direction of President Allen Plancich
and Advisor Mr. Lew Morse, sponsored several sock
dances in the high school gym. Again this year,
according to tradition, they held a large banquet
with such distinguished personages as Royal Broughf
am, well known sports editor of the Seattle Post-
lntelligencer, "Babe" Hollinbury, Eastern Washing-
ton businessman who was previously coach at the
Washington State College, the O'Brien twins,
Johnny and Eddie, from Seattle University, Bob
l'Hooks" Houbregs from the University of Wash- LEW MORSE
ington and Al Brightman, coach of Seattle Univer- Adviser
sity, the specially invited guests to the annual Let-
terrnen's Club Banquet.
The Lettermen's Club helps in the keeping up of the high school grounds, operating the popular
concession stand, caring for our new athletic equipment and protecting our gym floor from hard abuse.
Since our athletic equipment was brand new, it received their extra special attention during the year.

., M Through the combined efforts of the Girls' Club
a the Girls' Athletic Association, the Girls' Ath-
Ie 'c Letter Club was formed on February 3, l95O.
Concessions at all home games were made the
responsibility of the club, and with twenty per cent
of all proceeds going into the club treasury, suffic-
ient profits were realized during l95O-Sl to pur-
chase letter club pins.
The club was ably guided this year by Patty Svane,
with Velmetta Stroble serving as vice president and
Woodis Bibbins as secretary-treasurer.
On october io, following a football game, they
sponsored the "Autumn Leaf Dance."
As in the past the club worked zealously to main-
tain a co-operative and sportsmanlike spirit in all
athletic activities about school.
The club is composed of girls who have received
a letter through the Girls' Athletic Association. ln
determining points for letters not only participation
in athletics, but sportsmanship in class and school
activities are important factors. Points are earned
by regular attendance at meetings, medical and
dental examinations, participation in tournament
games, and activities outside of school such as
swimming, horseback riding and the like.
ln order to finance at least half of the money
needed for pins, the club this year sponsored a pie
sale, which appealed not only to their treasury but
the whole student body.
"To promote ideals of health and to foster a spirit
of good sportsmanship." This is the goal of the
Girls' Athletic Association of which Karlista Lane .
was president this year. Assisting her were Frances mm ,"s 51:
Larson, vice-president, Velmetta Stroble, secretary- ' S
treasurer, and Lorraine Holmes, point chairman. s .-: . .J
The officers, point chairman, adviser and repre- .VQ',. 1 F ,Q-.-e.,,y M. i
sentatives from each class made up the executive Q-',. 1
board which meets when any special problems arise. V J
Class representatives included Dorothy Ward, sen- ,
iorg Barbara Jolly, junior, Louise Holert, sophomore,
and Sharon Holert, freshman.
Our adviser Mrs. Kennett, although new to the
association this year, was loads of fun and did a
wonderful job. The several activities in which the
girls participated were volleyball, basketball, volley
tennis, badminton, bowling and baseball. Tourna-
ments were held at the end of the basketball and
volleyball seasons with the sophomores taking both
The playdays are the most important outside
activities. We attended one at Yelm in January and Advisof
another at Bethel in April. Those who attended the
Yelm playday were Karlista Lane, Patty Svane, Karen Udell, Frances Larson, Sharon Holert and Mrs.
Kennett. They report having had a very nice time.
The year ended with the awarding of letters to many of the girls who did outstanding work in
GAA for the year.

The first event of the year was the annual Pep Rally held each
fall in Vashon to stimulate the interest of the Islanders in our football
games. Cheerleaders Patty Svane, Freda Seltenreich and Eldra
Brown, songleaders lsomething new at the school this yearl Barbara
Jo Campbell, Marjorie Whaley and Carol Hawley, and the Pep Club
helped the Student Council plan this gala rally.
This year football season ticket sales were sli'ghtly different than
sales of other years. Each student in the school was given a few
season tickets to sell. After a week's campaign everyone who had
sold ten dollars worth or more was eligible for one of four 55.00
prizes given away at a drawing held at our first Pep Rally, We sold
more tickets this year than ever before.

Liz Novak, Karlista Lane, Stan Faas, and Dinny Cleb were chosen
by the Council to attend the annual student leaders' conference held
every fall at the University of Washington. Here they entered into
group discussions of such problems as school spirit, money raising
projects, attendance at school dances, and better co-operation in all
Once again all the former graduates were welcomed back to the
annual Homecoming dance held this year on December 23. This year,
unlike all former Homecoming dances, there was a king and five
princes as well as the queen and her tive princesses. The theme of
the dance, "Make Believe," was carried out in pink decorations which
were very beautiful. Everyone who attended agreed that this year's
Homecoming was the best ever.
ln the spring of l952 the Curtis Publishing Company offered us
a sure fire proposition to make money. The students sold subscrip-
tions to many popular magazines to the residents of the Island. We
were able to sell S2320 worth. Our share was 3580.
Needless to say this year's student body has been very, busy.

l'Ladies and gentlemen, honorable judges, worthy opponents and
colleagues-." Yes, that is how it starts out. The question this year
was "Resolved: That the North Atlantic Treaty Organization should
form a federal union."
The debaters were for the l6th year under the direction ot Mr,
Ostrom. The first big event ot the year was held at the College of
Puget Sound in the spring. Participants from about 80 schools gath-
ered tor the tournament to determine who would win honors for
their schools. There were many types ot debating and public speaking.
The second event was the Speech Festival at the University of
Washington. Since this meeting was the last one of the year there
were many subjects to be discussed and worked out with students
of other high schools in a round table discussion.
The schools we met this year were Bellevue, Stadium, Seattle
Prep, Lincoln of Tacoma, Kent-Meridian, Auburn, Clover Park, and
Foster. Ot this list, Stadium is considered our arch rival. We work
hard to beat the rest of the schools, but we work overtime to best

Debating takes plenty of work: however, there is plenty of
fun in it, '
The object of this organization is to establish good fellowship
among the students interested in the pursuit of knowledge, to encour-
age scholarship by recognition of merit and to promote good school

This year the Girls' Club, under the excellent supervision of
Mrs. Gladys Kennett and Mrs. Alice Keyes, has been very active.
To start the year out right, we had our annual Big-Little Sister
party. It took place in the later part of September. The purpose of
the party was to welcome all the new girls to the school. The "little
sisters" gave two skits, "The Three Bears" and "Napoleon Says
Good-Bye to his Beloved Grandmother." But the "big sisters," not
defeated, gave the skit entitled "School Days" and Laura Fry gave
an excellent reading.
On the Zlst of November we had our annual fall tolo. The
theme of this dance was "Autumn Scene." Under the direction of
Kay Green, the decoration committee decorated the walls and cur-
tains of the stage with leaves of all colors.
As is our custom every year, we decorated the halls at Christ-
mas. Barbara Jo Campbell and her committee hung holly wreaths
on the doors and bulletin board. At one end of the hall they placed
a sign with "Merry Christmas" on it. When they were finished the
halls had a very festive look.
Although there had been some rumors going a-round that there
would be no Polka Dot Revue this year, we were delighted that they
proved false. This is a joint project that we share with the Boys' Club.
We feel that Polka Dot gives everyone a chance to join in school
From the money received from Polka Dot we gave our mothers
a tea in May. At the tea we had a style show, and a program put on
by the music department added further entertainment for our
mothers. The Home Economics department furnished the food and
the girls did the remainder of the work such as decorations, table
setting, and making corsages.
ln the spring, we again sponsored the "Cotton Ball." We are
proud to say that it was a success as have been all the Girls' Club
projects this past year.
"We've got a Girls' Club in our high school,

Our annual induction ceremony held at the Vashon Presbyterian
Church in November was the first Hi-Y activity of the year. Cary
Karlberg, Don Church, Warren Yeend, Charles lngraham, Dennis
Priebe, Dennis Putney, Rolf Petterson, Stan Faas, Bob Elmore, and
Richard Fuller were initiated into the club. All who attended were
impressed by the ceremony.
First on the program of Hi-Y activities for the school's benefit
was a sock dance following a football game. The job of improving
the schooI's parking facilities was a task continued from the previous
year. Putting up the logs for parking spaces was this year's contribu-
tion. Campus Day, a day in which all the students willingly pitched
in and cleaned up the school grounds, buildings and busses, was
sponsored and supervised by members of the Hi-Y. We also sup-
ported the United Good Neighbors' Drive. These were just a few
of the many services which the Hi-Y performed for the school and
community. To raise funds we sponsored a movie at the Island
Theatre. Every seat was filled and the project was a success. Our
last activity of the year was a trek into the Olympics.
This year the Vashon Boys' Club waslunder the able guidance ot
Mr. Morse, adviser, and Tommy Hellesto, president. We are proud
ofthe many projects we have carried out this year. Our first job was
to sponsor a dance to bolster our depleted treasury. The next task
was to conduct the "March of Dimes" campaign at Vashon l-ligh.
Through cooperation we attained our goal.
Following tradition, we sponsored intramural basketball and
baseball. This provided students with entertainment during their
lunch hour and was fun for everyone. "When Rooster Tails Fly"
was the name ot the movie sponsored by the Boys' Club on February
lOth. The movie was about the Seattle Seafair and the C-old Cup
Races, and since these events are close to home, the interest of
everyone present was apparent. Another of our projects was the
appearance of the light in the parking lot by the locker room.
We were prepared to make up Thanksgiving baskets to give to
the needy, but we were not called upon to do so this year, as we
have been previously. We invited some interesting speakers to come
to the school and give talks to the student body, It has been a lot of
fun working together on all the projects- we have mentioned, and
we won't forget them for a long time.

The library staff consists of eleven members. Two librarians
work each period of the school day, except the fourth period, where
due to boys' and girls' physical education classes, Leo Long and Mike
Harrington tend the library three days a week and Mar Vaa Johansen
and Jill Johnson tend it twice a week.
First period librarians are Marlene Kalland and Myla Schmidt,
second period, Mar Vaa Johansen and Jill Johnson, third period,
Nancy Pruitt and Paula Law, fifth period, Nancy Pruitt and Laura
Fry, sixth period, Melvin Thelin and Don Kolesar.
The books are listed and filed according to the Dewey Decimal
system. Each librarian is in charge of a section of books and is respon-
sible for keeping them in order. The library also stocks three daily
papers and many popular magazines. There are several sets of
encyclopedias to aid the students in their studies as well as many
different reference books.
The librarians have had a very successful year and wish to
express their thanks to Miss Cammell for supervising them in their
n About the busiest place in the school is the office. Here the
office girls are kept busy, under the supervision of Mrs. Metzenberg,
doing miscellaneous jobs for Mr. Bennest and Mr. Barton.
Starting first period, the absentee reports are collected from the
rooms after roll has been taken, Admission to Class slips are made
out for students who have been absent, tardy slips are written for
those who neglect to get to class on time, homes have to be called
to find out why students have failed to report to school, and the
bulletin must be printed.
Throughout the next four periods, besides the same jobs, there
are errands for Mr. Bennest and Mr. Barton, and the candy money
from the lunch room to be counted after the noon hour. Sometimes
there is typing to be done for the different teachers.
During the sixth period the duties are much the same with the
exception of collecting the Admission to Class slips and adding up
all the lunch money at the end of each month.
Working in the office is fun, and if we happen to run out of
work, there is always school work to keep us out of mischief.

This clever mystery play, which has been played by more than
three thousand schools after a long, successful run on the professional
stage, was laid around an isolated country estate called mystery manor
because of the alleged hauntings.
Erma Lowrie, a young shop girl, inherited the estate from her
eccentric aunt, and according to the terms of the will she must
occupy the house for the period of one year.
Erma's cousins, Arthur Hale and Oswald Kerins, her living Aunt
Sophia and Peggy Van Ess, a former girl friend, were all house guests
when things begin to happen! The plot revolves about a necklace
which was stolen from the Tiger Cult of Africa. All in all it was a
very exciting and mysterious play and provided fun and entertainment
tor all who attended.

The past school year was a busy one, and we might add success-
ful one, for the music department, which was under the direction
of Mr. Leslie Walden. ' The first program of the year was the com-
bined Christmas and Winter Concert on December I8. We had
two exchange assemblies this year, one with Federal Way and one
with Fife. As a new member in the Pierce League, Vashon was host
for the League Choral Festival. Several groups appeared in the Polka
Dot Revue and the Spring Concert. The boys' quartet-Stan Faas,
Dennis Reuter, David Bargelt, and Chuck lngraham-sang for the
Kiwanis Minstrel Show and entertained in other community pro-
grams. The mixed quartet, girls' quartet, and the Madrigal group
also sang at the Christmas program and at Homecoming.
This year a girls' drill team was formed that worked in con-
junction with the band at all the home football games. Our band
could always be depended upon for "pepping up" our teams at home
ball games. The end of a perfect year came with the Baccalaureate
Services in which the mixed chorus sang, and with the Commence-
ment Exercises in which the band and chorus participated.

On September 3 we arrived at our section of the high school,
ready to begin our new life. We plunged into our school life and soon
found that it was much different than grade school. Our first busi-
ness of the year was to elect class officers. After two weeks of
meetings in Mrs. Constans' room, in which we held a primary elec-
tion and read our campaign speeches, we elected our officers.
On October 30 at eight o'clock, we held our first party of the
year-a halloween party in the high school gym. Everybody thor-
oughly enjoyed themselves. ln December we decided to contribute
ten dollars to charity. After some debate we decided to buy a CARE
package. We also had to answer the question of who was going to
represent our class in the Homecoming as prince and princess. After
an hour of discussion and voting the field of many was narrowed down
to two candidates for princess and two candidates for prince. The
student body voted on those candidates, and Pete Purgalis became
prince and Sally Rush became princess.
. The Eighth Grade contributed eight musicians to the band. Our
chorus sang two numbers in the Winter Concert. After Christmas
we elected new officers, and being more experienced, we held a
much more orderly election. We know that this last year has aided
us greatly in our future years as regular high school students.

Well, we made itl After eight years of battling our way through
the grades, forty-six new freshmen entered the doors of Vashon
High, official members of the school at last. s .
Most girls like to recall the days of their tender youth, and they
were certainly given a chance at the Big-Little Sister party. Some of
the upperclassmen were a little disgusted with our "juvenile" be-
havior, but wasn't that the whole idea of the party?
A few students attended the freshman basketball jamboree at
Bethel, at which we scored our first victory, beating DuPont.
We sponsored a dance after a football game to give our sagging
budget a lift. Mary Ann Roncevich, Diana Dahlgren, Linda Hallberg, V
and Joy Sherman turned out for debate and have all debated with
Two groups of cheerleaders turned out and although it was
hard to choose, Marlene Kalland, Shirley Whittaker, and Myla
Schmidt were given the honor. They led cheers for the frosh and
second team games.
Fifteen freshmen, either in the band or Girls' Glee Club, per-
formed in the Winter Concert. December 23 was the "big night"
for two of our classmates, Ronnie Brinton and Barbara Heien, prince
and princess at the annual Homecoming Ball.
A number of girls turned out for GAA though many of them
had to walk home. Sharon Holert was among the eight outstanding
girls in the organization elected to go to the January playday.

When we came in as freshmen we were pot entirely green to
our position because of our sojourn at the high school as eighth
graders the year before. Although we still aren't upper classmen we
don't regret it for a minute. We have for our adviser this year Coach
Morse, back on his own two feet again.
Early in the year we sponsored a tolo after a football game to
raise funds. Dona Munro and Woody Hedman were our representa-
tives in the Homecoming Court as princess and prince. Our annual
class picnic was the finale for the year.
The boys winning letters in football this year were Dave Tellvik,
Bill Miller, Jeff Smith, Roy Miettenun, Woody Hedman, Marty Lar-
son, and Richard Ellingsen. Many of the sophomores were among
the enthusiastic group turning out for basketball. The girls were
far from lazy when it came to sports. There were seven girls--Joan
McLeod, Francis Larsen, Maxine Beall, Sally Evans, Claudia Thomas,
Louise Holert, and Bonnie Ryan-who won letters in C-.A.A. in their
freshman year. These were the nucleus making possible our G.A.A.
championships in volleyball and basketball this Year.
lt can safely be said that we, as a class, are extremely satisfied
with our progress this year and are awaiting anxiously the time
when we will be able to demonstrate our abilities as upper classmen. l-LEWELLYN D' MORSE

September 7, i952 marked the birth of a new and better Junior
Class into the Vashon High records. Chuck lngraham very ably led
our class through the various minor difficulties. Many of us were
occupied with extracurricular activities. Football letters were earned
by Bob Elmore, Warren Yeend, Don Church, Marv Lester, and Dennis
A dance after Bainbridge game provided us with funds to help
carry us through our financial worries. We were well represented
at the annual Homecoming at which a new feature had been added,
that of electing a king and princes. John Purgalis was chosen as our
prince and Barbara Jo Campbell our princess.
Basketball found us ready also. Bob Elmore, Jerry Garvin, Gary
Karlberg, Marvin Lester, Chuck lngraham, Warren Yeend and Dennis
Putney were on hand to contribute their talents. Warren Yeend,
Mary Jo Wolverton, and Dennis Putney carried the banner on' the
tennis court. Baseball claimed a few Junior boys also. Bob Elmore,
Chuck lngraham, and Gary Karlberg were among those who returned
to the diamond.
We also contributed Patty Svane and Eldra Brown as cheerleaders .

ROY L. OSTROM
As entering frosh we were a large class-somewhere in the
number of 65, but as the years rolled by we decreased, leaving us
a grand total of 32.
We were ambitious, with some of our class joining into school
activities and sports.
At the beginning of our sophomore year we sponsored a dance
and party for the frosh. Five boys earned football letters, and two
girls earned letters in GAA.
In November of our junior year we sponsored a sox dance and
pie sales to get money enough to finance our play and prom.
Our play was a comedy concerning the trials and tribulations
of a high school student's life, with the appropriate title of "The
Hickory Stick." lt was ably directed by Mrs. Evans.
We used a Mexican theme for the prom, but even though the
orchestra was too expensive for us, programs weren't printed until
the last second, and we lost money, we had tun putting it on.
As seniors we sponsored a play titled "Tiger l-louse," an exciting
mystery. Our Senior Ball, too, prospered, and the final year at high
school came to an end tar too quickly.
We've tried to contribute a lot to our school-how successful
we've been is for time only to tell.
