IT f nuaTO YOU IRVIN KAUFFMAN WE DEDICATE THE 1955 BACKTRACKIN' You have made our schools more pleasant places In which to learn in the twenty three years you served as custodian. You were proud of your position and took pride In your work. Your long hours and unselfish devotion to duty will long be remem- bered by those who worked with you and by the students whose school life was more pleasant because of your efforts. We wish you continued success and happiness in your retirement. iThe Student Council members meet regularly to discuss issues of importance to the student body. They are: Marcia Opland, Gary Ellingson, Louise Durkee, Janet Halsch Lowell Harris, Joloyce Larson, Marlys Rorem, Dawn Howard, Curtis Olsen, Karen DeYoung, Arils McKee, Karen Renll, Norris Wika, and Paul Herness. The Board of Education of Canton is composed of Mrs. Josie Ellingson, Mrs. Helen J. Hamilton, Mr. Elmer Anderson, Mr. Carl K. Anderson, Mr. Cloid Green, Mr. Harold O'Banion. The School Board meets once each month and also on special occasions to discuss new matters which arise.Publishing an annual is a much greater task than most of us real- ize . We were most fortunate in having two capable people as edit- ors this year. As a result of their determined efforts and will- ingness to devote countless hours to working on the Backtrackin' they have earned all the credit this book will merit them. This big Jod could never have been brought to completion success- fully without the aid of a very co-operative staff—some of whom spent more than sixty hours in actual work and planning of the book. We of the annual staff wish to express our sincere thank3 and deep appreciation to our advisor, Mr. Kurtenbach, who devoted many hours of hard work to make this annual a success. The members of the annual staff who have worked four hours or more are: Gary Carlson Roger Zebarth Curtis Gifford Juel Fee Carole Nordseth Lois Wood Helen Harris Marlys Rorem Donna Hall Deanna Gray Marcella Paulson Karol Sundvold Betty Scholten Sharon Stapf Marienne Huffman Gail Monk Janet Halsch Janice Tollefson Bernice Gardner Shirley Eastmen Clyde Fisher Beverly Anderson DuWayne Anderson Pat Sweetman Peg Bartling Myrna Johnson Louise Durkee Mary Peterson Jane Teeslink Kenny Thorson Chuck Nelson Karen Dykstra Connie Johnson Arlys Severson Sonja Hackman Karen DeYoung Karen Warness Ann Bartholmew Mardelle Jone3 Janet Caswell Tom Vickerman Jim Steensland Janis Molstad Ruth Anderson John Vickerman Gay HopkinsBOB OLSON ■Why take life seriously. you111 never get out of it aliveF F1A 123.

They were John Vickerman, Dennis Monk, Marienne Huffman, Doug Tuttle, Drew Johnson, Mary Harris, Joloyce Larson and Karen Dykstra. The vocal groups sang seventeen numbers as their part in the Living Pictures Program on December 16, 1954. A new experience for the choir this year was the Music Festival held at Augustana College in Sioux Palls on April 16. They participated in the mass choir and sang two solo numbers. Judges for the small ensemble contest held in Vermillion on February 18, awarded high superiors to the boys octette, mixed octette, tenor soloist, con- tralto soloist and mezzo soprano sol1st.

The entire staff met every Tuesday and Thursday from three until four to plan the make-up and to gather and edit news worthy items. Each year selected editions of the Echo are sub- mitted for rating in the South Dakota High School Pres8 Association contest conducted by the Jourred- ism Department of State College. Last year a rat- ing of first-class "honor paper" was earned with 806 out of a possible 1000 points. The arrange- ment and the make-up of the paper was rated the maximum number of 250 points. The November 18, 195 , edition won special recognition as having the "picture of the week." This was a picture of the All-High play cast in which the faces of the group were backlighted by the light reflection from a large mirror in the room.The Girls Athletic Association met Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:30. Each month a business meeting was held in the evening. A recreation program and refreshments followed the business session. Each member who attended the group meetings earned four points for the year's activities. However, members could earn extra points through participation in such activities as golfing, hiking, tennis, badminton, ice skating, etc. Three GAA points were earned for each hour spent in these outside activities with not more than two successive hours for each playing session. The member with the most points at the end of the year received a special award. Softball was played during the fall and late spring months as a part of the organized group activity. The winter months program consisted of a variety of activities such as calisthenics, marching, swimming, basketball, hiking, ice skating parties, etc. One of the goals the group worked for this year was to earn enough through candy sales to be able to purchase a volley ball set.Mui IS A FRESHMAN "Mother is a Freshman", a three act comedy, was chosen as the 195A All-High play. The story centers around the efforts of Professor Daniel Michaels (John Vickerman) to win Abigail Abbot (Karen Eykstra) and, in the meantime, to avoid her daughter Sue (Sharon McKee) B0B0 Jackson (Curtis Gifford) a college boy, is more than willing to help, for he wants Sue for himself. Other char- acters were played by Karen Warness, Marienne Huffman, Jo- loyce Larson, Mardelle Jones, Audrey Linder, Ann Bartholomew, Peggy Bartling, Dick Bogue, Den- ny Monk, Drew Johnson, and Doug Tuttle. Barbara Christensen directed the play.Every second and third Tuesday evening of each month, the forty members of the shop club met to work on various projects of their choice under the super- vision of Mr. Tupper. During these two-hour meetings from seven to nine, the members worked on 3uch projects as seasonal decorations for their homes, wall plaques, kitchen knife holders, fruit bowls, display boards, etc. JANET HAISCH ESTHER WOOD AUDREY LINDER| Report Card3 Come In KM ■ Government Days Committee Chem ry n f Welding Sweetheart and Prince Charmln Ag Shop of 1955 Finishing up Backtrack!!
