"Freight train, freight train goin' so fast."
The next stop is our stop. It is the station where
we get off this train and get on a different one -A
one that will take us to our place in this great
country ot' ours.
The last few weeks of school are hectic weeks
for the seniors. Many things have to be done now
or they won't get done at all. Invitations for grad-
uation have to be sent out. Those who haven't had
their pictures taken or haven't got them back are
wondering whether we will get them by gradua-
There are also a few dogs running around the
senior class and high school, trying to get as many
autographs as possible. These dogs are not real
dogs but autograph hunters called Personality pets.
The boys don't say much about getting a new
suit or a new pair of shoes but among the girls,
getting a new dress or a pair of shoes is the main
topic of discussion. Every outfit has something
different about it. Maybe it is the way it is made,
its color or maybe the thing that makes it different
is the way the senior describes it. There is a happy
look on their faces as they think of their outfit
and of the big day not too far off in the future
that will in some way change each of their lives.
Even semester tests aren't dreaded as much
because they are the last ones the seniors will have
to take in high school. A question that has gone
around the senior class these last couple of weeks
is who is in the top third of the class. Many wish
they had tried harder so that they, too, could have
been near the top.
Finally, with the last minute papers being
handed in and last minute parties and get-togeth-
ers, the last year of high school for the class of 1958
creeps to a close. The pleasant 'memories of the
high school years are folded up and packed care-
fully in a drawer in the back of the minds. and
dreams and plans for the future are coming closer
We're the hottest class of Alta
Our year is "58"
The Juniors we will challenge
To show them that we rate
Our colors we are proud of
Baby blue and white
Through the air they're flying
And for them we will fight.
So come on all you seniors
And shout our yell with glee
And show the other classes
What victors we will be
Our loyalty and spirit
We're proud of for you see
We strive to be the greatest
Class in history.

A Teenager's Romance was the theme of the
Senior Class Play, Strictly Formal, which was
given on Friday, March 28, in the high school audi-
The play begins when the Senior Prom is only
two weeks away. Jane Cutler and her best friend
Sally, tborene Peterson and Kathryn Sievertl still
have no dates for the prom. George Ahern and his
buddy Jim tCharles Dahl and Burton Johnsonl
haven't said a word about taking them. But their
worries are only beginning, for Sally's cousin, Mar-
cia from New York lDeanna Johnsonl snares one
man after another with the old "go-get-em" tactics.
Elroy tBob Kindwalll, who is constantly practic-
ing the shot put, is allergic to her tactics. The girls
get reinforcements, as Cindy Collins tFaith Obergl
arrives. Cindy is a movie fan and ready to solve
any problem on the basis of a movie. The movie
plots only complicate the real life problems. Cindy
"gets in Dutch" with everyone and finally gives
up trying to fix things. Then Elroy puts the shot
into the prize peony bed, and what started with
a mild worry about prom dates becomes a war of
dads and peonies, shot puts, mumps. and movies.
Other characters who aided in making the
play entertaining were: Andrew and Nettie Cut-
ler, Jane's parents CAI Miller and Sharon Lichten-
bergl, Agnes. the maid iJacque Ottol, Mr. Ahern,
George's father tGlenn Hartmani, the neighbors,
Mrs. Tilton, Rose. and Jasie tJudy Brown, Jennie
Smith. Sara Ryherdb, Marilyn, another senior
minus a date fJane Dreierl, and Lt. Bob Cunning-
ham, a flier fJerry Sandinel.
As usual everything turns out all right, but
first there must be Changing Partners.
