Class History WE CAMEQ ws sAws ws coNQUEREDu Almost twelve years ago we came, weak-kneed and just a little scared, Only three-Donna, jim and Gary-have not sailed all the way with us. Through the years we have seen that if we were to conquer we fir st had to conquer our selves, So far we have con- quered but we have not done italone, We owe much of the credit to the hard work and advice of our parents, teachers, and com- munity. Motto - HE CONQUERS WHO CONQUERS I-IIMSELF. Colors - ROSE AND GRAY Flower - AMERICAN BEAUTY ROSE Class Poem They're gone! They've left! They will return no more, The willful, skillful, fighting group- The class of '54, ' They lead! They were The best we ever knew, Twelve frollicking, rollicking years of school And now they're finally through. Oh Say! What now? How can we carry on? The great, the noble, the mighty ones Of '54 are gone! Class Will Eleven victims of the desired disease, graduation, have passed into the outer world of which we think we know so much, On their deathbed in the final days of existance they bequeathed their earthly possessions to those unfortunate enough to remain behind. The class leaves its temper and pep to the Freshmen, It wills its exuberance to Betty Lindquist, its energy to Dick Oller. It leaves their sleepy days to the Sophomores and bequeaths its talkativeness to the teachers, To the juniors goes the title "Seniors" and to all the students and faculty they leave the wish that they will never forget them--the Seniors of '54-. Senior C1ass4P1ay "junior Prom" was the Senior play which was presented No- vember l3 and 14, It was directed by Mrs, Ellis. All the Seniors and Claude Hulce were in the cast which was as follows: Hildy Haines --------- Virginia Hullinger Olivia ------------------- Barbara Heath Oueenie Smith ------------ Donna Heston Chuck Haines ------------- Burton Heath Frankie Brown ------------- j im Howder Mrs, Haines ----------------- Kay Hilton Cora Haines ------------ N adine Clickner- Willie Vermin --------------- Alvin Hall Jerome Haines --------- Gary Silvernail Clarence Weegar -------- Dean Lindquist Cassandra Cholmundeley--- Gayle Stolley Doctor Prescott ---------- Claude Hulce V ' Senior Skip Day With a whoop and a holler the Seniors took off for the Black Hills, Thursday afternoon, May Z2 on their Senior skip day, Rapid City played host to them that night and bright and early the next morning they arose and went on to Deadwood. In Deadwood they set themselves gently down upon the chair lift, fdangling their number 10's as gingerly as possible, and watched a mile of Terry Peak slide underneath them, They toured the Homestake Mine and spent the rest of the afternoon in the Homestake Recreation Center, After spending Friday night and Saturday morning around 'Spearfish way' they streaked on to Rapid. Saturday night it was viewing the movie at the drive-in theatre and dancing in the Bon-Air. After that they called it a day and trotted back to the cabins and to bed. ' Sunday morning dawned to find sleepy 'Seniors stretching, yawning and reaching for their "Sunday go to meetin' dude." The majority of them loyally went to churchg the rest just layed around and took life easy. The last bit of money was splurged on a Sunday dinner and so ----they returned----br oke and tired, fbut looking well around the waistlinel. Senior Snaps Q5 1 5, rss. N ill.. if' y I: ,,.
