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 School. ,QW b ' n , Y.

Nebraska State College Catholic University of America University of Pennsylvania Band, Chorus, Music Appreciation ri -ur' i ,ew I Kids M.,-ff ,,o,,,-,.,,.,,..cs..-an we H. R. BARTON Superintendent 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 Principal 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. gg i ix we 1 uxlxxnxulllll lt i- gli 5 Q 1un1nvvnvuwx1x1w11 NHS A -' ' ' sa'fz,,.g3allvNi ef...,w.n.u-minus-e .wewffm-.sms ,.,..,..., ' x ,r N ik M W wx wW' ,. qw xNNMxg?Wf1w4 -JXJAJ SJ xyvofwi-VW ' QW, W cw Mk M M W W?

Aff- .sf 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. ettermen's Club FIRST ROW: Bob Dunlap, Tom Hellesto, Dinny Gleb, Dennis Putney, Roger Brown, Chuck lngraham, Bob Elmore, vice-presi- l dent, Dennis Priebe, Bill Mickle.

W is 55: 1 1 Tflo f' if 1,1 is 'ff W ' wg' GLADYS KENNETI' Advisor i r s e t t e r u ' I ' L C I Ii ., 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 championships. 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. irls' Athletic Association FIRST ROW: Mary Lou Hartman, Claudia Bibbins, Jackie Errington, Gail Watson, Patsy Drummond, Barbara Heien, Diana Dahlgren, Sally Evans.

Elizabeth Novak was our president, the second girl in the history of our school to attain that honor. Assisting Elizabeth were Dennis Priebe as vice-presidentg Kay Green, secretaryg Dinny Cleb, treasurer, and Mac Steen, assistant treasurer. 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 school activities. 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. SECOND ROW: Kay Green, Cleb, A.S.B. treasurerg Tom lngraham, Woody Hedman.

ROY OSTROM Debate Coach Debate 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 Stadium, which we did, 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 citizenship. Eligibility depends on grade averages and activity points. To be eligible your sophomore year for membership and to be able to receive your one-bar pin, you must have maintained a 3. average with no activity points your freshman year. To be eligible your junior year for membership and for your two-bar pin, you must have maintained a 3. average your sophomore year and have earned two activity points. To be eligible your senior year tor membership and to receive your three-bar pin, you must have received a 3. average your junior year and have earned a total of five activity points. ln order for a senior to receive his torch pin, he must maintain a 3. average his senior year and have earned eight activity points during his tour years at high school and been a member of the Honor Society tor three years. During this past year, the Honor Society has sponsored a pie sale and dance. The group has been carefully guided by Mrs. Keyes.

You have often heard that yell coming from a group of energetic girls. They are the Vashon Hi Pep Club. We work on a little of everything around the school. We help out in fire drills. We decorate the goal posts. We mark off the visitors' section of the bleachers. You will also find us working in the office at times. Then, too, you see us dashing around the halls in costumes, trying to get a skit ready. For our fun, we have a trip to Lake Wilderness in May. We also do some work on this trip, for it is then that we check the eligibility of members for next year, To get into the Pep Club one must earn a certain number of points, by the end of the sophomore year. Points are given for the various activities in which a student participates. ln other words, to become a member depends upon interest and effort in the activities of the school. The initiation takes place at the Award Program. The girl with the highest number of points, or the one who really deserves it, is awarded the inspiration cup at the end of her senior year. R were I I pledge, as a member of the Vashon Tri-Hi-Y, to create, main- tain, and extend throughout the home, school, and community, high standards of Christian character. I will prove, by being friendly and courteous, that I believe all people have basic worth. I will try to be an honest and sincere student and citizen in my school. I will be willing to cooperate to the fullest extent in any project which the Tri-Hi-Y undertakes. I will be careful of my personal appearance-remembering that it is not what I wear that counts, but how I wear it. I will not smoke or drink. I believe that by all my words and actions I must represent the highest standards of Tri-Hi-Y, and I realize that all I say and do is a reflection on the club. I am willing to relinquish my membership if at any time the club feels that I have not lived by its standards.

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. MOTHERS' TEA Club 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 activities. 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, lt is the fairest in the land, We work and tight to keep our honor, And we'll protect you to the end.

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.

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 work. Office taff 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. .ia Q 'Y an ,- EVA METZENBERG Adviser Rosemary Ofdenkamp, Carol Spencer, Kay Green, Woodis Bibbins, Karlista Lane, Arlene Benzon.

CZJ F: TO DAY I believe thatthe teen- agers of today aren't half as bad as they are thought to be. Sure, people think we are worse than our par- ents were, but that is just because in this day and age things aren't as well hidden as they were twenty years ago. Also, in this modern age things that were taboo twenty years ago aren't thought about twice now. I think that most par- ents do know and care what their teenage children are doing out of school, and that those who don't wouldn't come tothe P.T.A. meetings anyway. It's true that the kids on the Island don't have much to do when school is out, but if there was a WTeen Canteenn or some- thing similiar, how many kids would go there to have their fun? Not many, sure a few, but not many. After a while the newness would wear off and there would be less going. On thewhole I don't be- lieve high school students on the Island are any worse than any place else.

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. iii I aka Omcx her puncse harp. Chmese nuufserq rLu1vneS.

' 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. Benzon. 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. LESLIE E.

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. Adviser GLADYS CONSTANS . 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. Adviser ROBERT G.

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 other schools. 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.

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 Adviser FIRST ROW: Joanne Puz, Maxine Beall, Frances Larsen, Bonnie Ryan, Joan McLeod, Claudia Thomas, Meriel Wyman, Diana Baldwin, Betty Swenson, Joanne Christensen, Mary Hartley.

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 Putney. , 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.

OSTROM Adviser eniors 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.
