Alan Harms, Jerry Endreson, Dean Radke JANUARY THAW Mr. Gage, a writer of a little regard and of no little debt, packed up his belongings and familv and moved into the old farm home of the suppos- edly dead Rockwood family. He was contemplating a long period of peace and quiet in which he could finish a novel, which held promise of redeeming him with his creditors. Such was not the case. Just as the January thaw was setting in, the Gages found themselves confronted with three very live and very lively Rockwoods: father, mother, and son. The younger member of the Rockwoods soon became implicated in a romantic situation involv- ing George Husted and Barbara Gage, the young lovers. With the Rockwoods for boarders, three daughters, suitors, disgusted maids, and Uncle Walter, a Mount Idy type character, to contend with, the Gage family soon became involved in a farcical series of misadventures. Finally, these misunderstandings were resolved, however, and the Gages had a happily married daughter together with two amiable neighbors who had decided that the merits of the Rockwood barn were decidedly greater than those of the house.

A MOMENT OF GRANDEUR After the last furious days of winter and dur- ing the last days of March, the second floor of Dr. Noble's office became the scenery of preparatory activity. With a great deal of sound and fury, work had begun, the occasion, the imminent junior- senior prom. Although the planning of the program was the responsibility of the members of the junior class, these stalwarts were not without assistance. The mothers were in charge of the preparation of the banquet meal, and the class sponsors, in charge of the students. Numerous citizens were prevailed upon for the loan of materials, and much apprecia- ted refreshments. A vote of thanks is due to all those who helped in any of these ways, to Mr. Bishop, who had charge of the prom, Miss Aegerter, who headed the banquet, and Mr. Elliott, who di- rected the entertainment, as well as the other class sponsors. While one committee worked independently of the others on the decorations for the school lunch room, where the banquet was to be held, most of the others, with one week left until the crucial date, transferred their operations to the Legion Hall -- scene of the impending dance. More nights than not, during the last month, were devoted to very necessary labor on the project. The pace was at times less than rapid, but never less than hectic. Somehow, sometime, everything would be in order, and with late hours and the blessings of fate, the sometime proved to be the right time. The decorations in the Legion Hall were to be shown on two occasions, the night of the dance and the following Monday night With dinner prepara- tions in order, the initial apocalyptic moment had arrived, the occasion of the banquet proper. The lunch room was bedecked with painted cartoons of sea creatures, the tables were gold fish bowls, and the girls in billowing formals. The food was dis- posed of, and the formal ceremonies began. The junior misses and misters provided entertainment intermittently, receiving, as did the speakers, their introductions, from Dean Radke, master of cere- monies. The banquet was at an end, and the jun- iors and seniors, some of them pausing to find dates not belonging to the participating classes, trickled into the Legion Hall. The much labored over decorations. hitherto seen only in the rough. were revealed. Under the auspices of dim, colored lights their character was improved, and now the cardboard and paper went a fair way towards looking romantic. The seascape on the east wall, south of the door announced through the veiling of fish nets the theme, Nep- tune's Garden. In a cave west of the stage lnow masquerading as a boatl a smiling octupus guard- ed an open treasure chest, and in the southwest corner Neptune, reposing in his illuminated sea shell and escorted by mermaids, drove his sea horses. In the northwest corner, the ancient sunken city gave way to the cave of Minnie the Mermaid, where punch was served by the same gobs and mermaids who had waited on tables during the din- ner. A colorful coral garden lay on the remaining side of the door. The opportunity for the sophomores and fresh- men to get into the act came with the presenta- tion of the Sea Show by the Sea Sho, and the softer strains of the Art Kermse Band prevailed through the evening. The scene described, the object of so much labor, darkened as the Cinderella hour struck. The music was gone, and the young hearts and tired hearts dispersed: the former, to smaller or private parties, and the latter, to their comfortable berths for the night.

Ji ! HOMECOMING QUEEN AND KING Doris R. Johnson and Norman Peterson HOMECOMING ACTIVITIES The week of September 28, 1959 began the homecoming activities at Alta High School. At the beginning of the week the classes were busy pre- paring their floats for the parade. On Thursday night there was a bonfire and pep rally at the park. The coaches gave pep talks and introduced the team. On Friday afternoon rain made it impossible for the Homecoming Parade to take place. A pep rally was held in the gymnasium. The traditional judging of the class floats never took place this year. Friday, October 2, the football team did their part to make the 1959 Homecoming a success by defeating Sutherland 22-0. The game was played in ram. The band entertained at halftime and the crowning of the King and Queen took place. Doris R. Johnson was chosen Queen and Norman Peter- son was named King. The attendants were Connie Lichtenberg and Gordon Radke, seniorsg Mary Huscman and Jerry Endreson, juniors: Jean Man- gold and Robert Radke, sophomoresg Karna Berg- mann and Paul Ruehrnann, freshmen. Following the game the homecoming dance was held at the community room with the Rhythm Knights furnishing the music. A Qi
