FRESHMAN FLOAT, "We're Small But
SENIOR FLOAT, "We'II Hatch A Victory"
Junior: Doris Johnson, Sophomore, Sharon Huse-
man, Freshman. Then the football boys bowed low,
worshiped their king, Roger Peterson, and yelled,
"We want Rog." Due to this persuasion Rog came
out of the crowd and gave a good pep talk which
satisfied his worshipers. This put an end to the
pep meeting but it was not the end of work on the
floats. Some classes still had a lot to do on theirs
so off they went to finish the job.
Friday morning there were many sleepy heads
in school. At midnight the students finished work
on the floats and then, since it was the end of the
six weeks, they had to go home and study for tests
till the wee hours of morning. When it was about
time for the parade. everyone appeared a little
brighter because of the excitement. The members
of each class strained their eyes to see if their
float was coming, and if it wasn't they began to
wonder if maybe it had fallen apart before they
could get it there. Finally, however, everything
was assembled and ready to go. Leading the par-
ade was the band followed by the king and queen
and her attendants, next came the floats, in order
of the classes with the Seniors first. On Main street
the parade stopped for the pep meeting. The king,
Roger Peterson, gave another pep talk as did Mr.
Samuelson and Mr. Melander. After the pep meet-
ing the band led the parade to the school house.
They decided they would lead the floats past
the hospital and show them to Mrs. Clawson, the
coach's wife and to the coach's new son, Charles
Junior who, so his father says, is going to be a
spin-back as soon as he can. After this the kids
headed home for a brief rest before the game.

On Thursday night, October 10, 1957. we had
si parade led by the football boys who rode on the
back of a truck. The queen. Jennie Ann, and king,
Roger, occupied seats of honor in this parade on the
front fenders of the truck the football boys rode on.
After the truck the band came. They were a little
bit behind because they lacked the horsepower that
the truck had to give it get up and go. Following
the band was the student body, ready and willing
to lend the band some of its steam. Following the
parade a pep meeting was held by the light of a big
bonfire which the Junior High football players
built. At this pep meeting was a dummy represent-
It was "One In a Million." Like stars on a
summer night, there is one that out-shines all oth-
ers. One of our brightest stars is the one that shone
on October 11, our Homecoming. To the Seniors,
especially and to all the student body. its bright-
ness surpassed all others. The preparation for this
night began around two weeks ahead of the actual
game. At this time the classes are choosing the
themes for their floats. Although it is a lot of fun
to put a float together, the kids know also how
much work it is and how much of a hole it puts in
their class treasury.

tiful bonfire the three coaches, Mr. Clawson, Mr.
Beals and Mr. McCoy could not resist the chance
to give him a hot seat. so in he went. This symbol-
ized what we were going to do to Sutherland Fri-
day night at the game. There were pep talks given
by .Mr. Hammond and the queen, Jennie Ann
Smith. During her pep talk Jennie introduced her

That night at the game you could tell this
was something special. The Seniors were ready
to make it a night to remember since they would
never again play at Homecoming. At the half
time the band entertained with a few songs and
formations. Then came the big event, the arrival
of the King and Queen, her attendants and their
escorts. They were: Seniors, Lorene Peterson and
Jerry Sandine. Juniors, Kathy Radke and Robert
llinkeldey. Sophomores, Doris R. Johnson and
Gordon Radke. Freshmen, Sharon Huseman and
Myron Radke. Next came the crowning of the
queen and king. The hand played a fanfare to an-
nounce the queen's coming. There was silence as
the king crowned the queen and when the queen
crowned the king. After the ceremony the king
escorted the queen back to her car, followed by
her attendants and their escorts. After the half-
time the game continued and ended with Alta on
top making our homecoming a bigger success.
For the homecoming dance the Seniors got
"The Rhythm Knights", a band which everyone
enjoyed. When the dance ended there were many
tired feet but happy people who were glad to see
the week come to an end. Many were sad because
this was their last homecoming, but they knew
they could not have asked for a better one. Home-
coming really ended when the last float was rob-
bed of its last decoration. Just like Cinderella
when the clock struck twelve.
