THE MODERN VIKINGS
THE NIIIDERN VIKINGS
ADVENTURES IN LEARNING PAGE
The sages of the original Vikings, of Norway, Sweden, and Ice-
land, may be compared with the progress of the modern Vikings
of Wyoming High. Their constant search for new ideas caused
them to advance their civilization more rapidly than any other
people of that period.
The modern Vikings are seeking just as earnestly as the Vikings
of the past. The Viking of Wyoming High advances as he explores
the Helds of learning, social relationships, and athletic rivalry. The
training which he receives will serve as a guide and the basis for
his growth in life.
ADVENTURES IN ATHLETIC RIVALRY PAGE
ADVENTURES IN SDGIAL
ODER IKI G
The modern Vikings are the students, faculty,
and administration of Wyoming High. Their out-
look on life is one of great anticipation. This was
the attitude of Leif Ericson, and many other
great Vikings, who left their homes in search of
fresh discoveries and adventures.
They are the ones who will contribute their
leadership to advancement in tomorrow's world.

FACULTY PRO IDES LE DER HIP
Mr, JOSEPH BROZAK
B.S. Western Michigan University
MA. University of M'chigan
Mr. KENNETH DAVIS
A.B. Indiana State Teachers' College
MA. University of Michigan
Mr. Brozak, superintendent, and Mr. Davis, prin-
cipal, make up the administrative office of Wyom-
ing High. They are the source of leadership for the
faculty and students alike. Without their direction
and guidance our school would be far less significant.
The coordination of the school's program is a job
which brings a challenge to the men in charge. To
join studies and extracurricular activities into one
program takes planning and hard work.
Communications between school and community,
managing the financial department, and keeping the
school records are only a few of the many problems
that are faced by our administrative office.
The faculty of Wyoming High is another key to
the school's, and the student's standard of values.
Theirs is the job of training good citizens from the
student bodyg this can only be accomplished by their
personal interest in the students as individuals as
well as a group. They set the example for good citi-
zenship in both school and community.
A teacher's work day does not end at 3:36, when
the bell ends sixth hour. Extra hours of work are
needed to correct the endless pile of papers that con-
tinually confront them.
Through the faculty's leadership the students of
today will become the competent, capable leaders

Mrs. KENNETH FRYE
For the example she set, for the good will, the success we ex-
perienced through her efforts, and her dynamic personality, we
will always remember Mrs. Kenneth fjoanj Frye, who was taken
from us in the summer of 1958.
Under her direction the choir gave successful performances, pro-
duced operettas and won many first place ratings.

AD ENTURE I LEARNING
The preparation a modern Viking receives is the
foundation upon which his future career is based.
The structure of his entire life is formed by the
instruction and guidance given to him during
these years at Wyoming High.
just as the Vikings of old adapted to himself
the knowledge and social standards of those whom
he encountered so does the Viking of today, his
knowledge is gained by experiences and experi-
ments in the fields of science, literature, language,
mathematics, and vocational skills.

English is our link with the intellectual past.
Literature relates the valiant deeds of Caesar
and the gentle song of Hiawatha, but without
the proper background of grammar these stories
and tales would mean very little.
English is not always the exciting world of
entertainment that we desire. In fact, sometimes
it is downright dull and uninteresting and we
may thinkiof it as the daily grind, with no fu-
ture in diagramming sentences or learning what
an adverbial phrase is.

Donna Bt-nk and Brian Cox accept and reject

Thelsound of clicking typewriters and the whirr of
the mimeograph machine could be heard on Friday
afternoon as the Journalism Class rushed to get the
bi-weekly "Beacon" out on time.
Interviewing teachers and students for "beat-
reports" was only one of the objectives that kept the
class busy producing the "Beacon,"
The "Orbit'i also consumed much of the staffs'
time. Hours of after-school work went into making
page layouts, writing copy, and preparing the pic-
tures for the annual.
This 1959 "Orbit' is the result of a year's plan-
ning and effortg it is hoped that you enjoy it.
The careful planning of Miss Rogers and her stu-
dent assistants has made the library a source of
ready knowledge and entertainment. The variety of
books and magazines at our disposal satisfy our need
for both cultural and pleasure reading.
Audio-Visual is another service which many of
us have taken for granted. The hopeless maze of
film catalogues, and the need for prompt delivery are
a challenge to the members of A.V. Department and
Mr. Overmire, the co-ordinator.

various activities he receives the social experiences
which are also an important factor in his develop-
ment. Whatever the student's interest he is sure to
have an opportunity for growth through the
adventures of his day.

The Student Council of Wyoming High
School, with its various representatives of the
student body, met together to discuss the prob-
lems, which arose during the school year, then
proceeded to do something about the diiliculty
by examining the issue from every viewpoint.
Mr. Davis's opinion was taken into consideration
before the final decision was made 5 thereby the
student-faculty relationship was strengthened.
Through the encouragement of the Student
Council the students became aware of the im-
portance of sportsmanship, and the fact that a
discussion will settle far more than an argument.

The Varsity Club is one of the clubs at-VVyoming High which corn-
bines both recreational activities and a dehnite goal or purpose for its
Their recreational functions were to assist the faculty in administer-
ing the intramural basketball program and the traditional initiation
ceremony when the new members are put through an ordeal of eggs,
raw oysters, and long hikes.
The club's primaly aim is sportsmanship in all sports. Through its
membership of letter winners, the Varsity Club strives to promote sports-
manship among players and spectators alike.
This year the Varsity Club members received blue and white varsity
jackets with a large "W" on the front. This jacket serves as a badge of
honor and respect for the best of Wyoming's athletes.
Varsity Club officers, Don Drake, vice pres., Roger Ziel, president, Ed Finn,
sec.-treas., and Wayne Kidder, sergeant-at-arms, inspect the track record board
which the club donated to the school.
Doughnuts and a Korean Chapel may not
seem to have much in common to the average
person, but to the boys of the Hi-Y Club they are
practically interchangeable. The Wyoming Hi-Y
Club, along with all the other clubs of the Michi-
gan Hi-Y Association, contribute part of the
money they earn toward the support of a chapel
in Korea. The rest of the money is given to vari-
ous other charities.
The boys also participate in sports, such as
swimming, bowling, and basketball,
Y.M.C.A. and this year they collected for the
March of Dimes.
All these things are done in an effort to build
"Christian minds and bodiesf'

Maurice Mullins fPete Vander Haarj
resurrects Charles Jasper QBob W'hit- to life
fordl, whom he had poisoned, as a hal-
lucination of his tortured, unbalanced
mind and confesses the murder in a dra-
matic closing scene.
After years of comedies, Wyoming finally has given a
purely dramatic play. True, the play, 'GA Murder Has
Been Arrangedfi contained humor, such as Carole Dut-
meris unforgettable characterization of Mrs. Wragg, or
Larry Abbott Cas Jimmy Northl in his attempts to
convince Mrs. Arthur CMarbo Turnerj that he is a
newspaper man, but the plot of the play depended on
dramatic scenes which required convincing performances.
Presented November 20, by the senior class, the play
was directed by Miss Spradlin. The cast also included
Sharon Ehle as a woman, Judy Van Dyke as Beatrice
Arthur, Sharon Hagan, as Miss Groze, and Jay Gro-
endyk as Cavendish.

" YOU GMAN'S FANCY"
April 10 and 11 were two very big nights for

tion of "A Young Man's Fancyl' was given in
the new gym. The setting was a co-educational
summer camp in northern Connecticut. A rustic
bunkhouse was the scene of the hilarious activity
which took place throughout the three acts of
The plot revolved around Dickie Crandall,
played by Mike Hannum, and his attempts to
promote a tender, but laughable love affair be-
tween Joe Kramarz and Sherry Postma, who
portrayed Camp Freedom counselors.
Nancy De Puit played the part of Heler
Greenly, a co-owner of the camp and firm be-
liever in "progressive education." Her four
major problems were in the form of Mike Dyk-
stra, Ron Hazelwood, Orie Kalee, and Dave
Carlton as Buddy, jokey Stephen, Duvie, and
Grilly. The boys' amusing antics ranged from
sudden drenchings and falling bunks, to a slight
brawl with boys from another camp.
The cast was rounded out by Merry Bean,
Ruby Lemon, Bill Ferguson, Lynn Raven, Eileen

main on the bench for three games, due to an elbow
injury, he continued to show his skill in the following
games. His height and scoring ability made him a
double threat, he was able to control both backboards
and shoot an average of 15W throughout the season.
Wyoming will benefit from his support next year when
they will be without the scoring and rebounding of Ed,
who is a senior this year.
