X 4 THE BULLDOG Published by THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1957 V De Smet High School DeS ei So thDki CLASS HISTORY The Class of 1957 began its education as first graders supervised by Mrs. Marion Hendricks. There are ten of the original class graduating. They are Allen Wellman, Nancy Wehrkamp, Jerry Walline, Phyllis Smith, Janet Seeley, Barbara Moore, Joan Kruse, Cheryl Hinz, Roger Fritzel and Margaret Glover. As second graders we were under the supervision of Mrs. Vern Belzer. In the third grade Lynda Jacob came to study with us. Our teacher was Mrs. Esther Basart. As fourth graders we were happy to welcome to our class Donald Schultz and Lyndom Gehm. Anita Knudson joined us in the middle of the year and left again at the end of the year. We were again under the supervision of Mrs. Esther Basart. In the fifth grade Miss Jewel Anderson was our teacher. We were happy to gain Nadine Patterson and sad to lose Margaret Glover. As sixth graders Mrs. Phyllis Graham Smith was our teacher. As we entered Junior. High we neither gained nor lost anyone. Miss Lorem: Anderson was our supervisor. We welcomed DeEtte Krieger and Wayne Langland into our class during the eighth grade. We were directed by Miss Marion Hinz. As green and humble freshmen we entered high school, and, after initiation we settled down to business. Our class was enlarged by 15, with the addition of Anita Knudson, Curtis Stensland, Clifford Poppen, Sharon Olson, Janet Muscr, Charles Lee, Sylvia Janssen, Mary Ann Iverson, Irene Harvey, Ruth Dykstra, Donna Cavanaugh, Margaret Apland, Larry Apland, Neil Bowes and Noel Bishop. Our class advisor was Mr. Dutcher. In our sophomore year we enlarged by three more. They were Donald Carroll, Virginia Studer and Rayice Gildseth. Our class advisors were Mr. Mohlenhoff and Mr. Mundhenke. As juniors we welcomed Robert Carroll, Karen Rasmussen and Margaret Glover. Our advisors were Mrs. Blaine Root, Mrs. Marie Sanders Fox and Mrs. Loris Brakkc Carlson. We had a lot of fun publishing the Barker, staging our junior class play, "We Shoop The Family Tree," and putting on the Junior-Senior banquet. Our prom theme was Oriental Gardens and the music was supplied by Don Warren. Now at last we are seniors. Publishing the Annual was a lot of fun and we en- joyed staging the senior play, "December Bride," by Brainerd Duffield. Our play was given May 3 and was directed by Mrs. Root. Our class advisors are Mr. Graham and Mr. Lester. On May 20, 1957, 37 joyous seniors donned caps and gowns to receive their diplomas. -A Cuurtis Stensland Margaret Apland Vice President Secretary Joan Kruse Rayice Gildseth President Treasurer They Have Chartered the Good Ship "Destiny" in the year '56-'57 TWO m f7 ' a 952 E , I LWHQ -get-F :J H fx!

The Class of 1957 proudly dedicates this year's Bulldog to the man who has been our school's chief administrator for the past six years. Mr. Lyle W. Lester came to De Smet in 1951 from Colton H1gh.Schoo1. In these six years he has cultivated the respect of practically everyone in the community of De Smet. This he has done in a surprisingly subtle, inconspicious mannerg which is really Mr. Lester's trade-mark. Being Superintendent of a High School of any size is a big job because of the various problems and decisions for which the superintendent is responsible. Yet Mr. Lester has always been busy and productive and has stood for what he believed was best for D. H. S. As the students of this school well know, he has met with opposition on many points, yet he has never been known to dodge the issue. Though he is not overbearing, he must always be con- sulted whenever a big decision must be reached. His opinion of a plan or program makes it effective or ineffective throughout the school. Thus Mr. Lester is the head of the organization. Mr. Lester has been very capable as the head of District 15. This year, because of a shortage of teachers, he has taken on additional class work. He has proved to be one of the most popular teachers in the school. Thus we seniors wish to take this means of paying respect to Lyle Lester for his service to De Smet High.

This year's student government organization has been very active. The group is composed of two representatives from each class, plus the three officers which were elected at large in an all-high school election early in the year. This year the officers are: President, Allen Wellmang Vice President, Sharon Kay Schmidtg and Secretary-Treasurer, Irene Paulson. The group meets at least twice a month and, with the counsel of Superintendent Lcster, deliberates and passes judgment on various problems which arise in school government, e. g. the Homecoming event. In addition, this year the Student Council has done some money raising for the school. During December the group sold decorative "D" pins which identified the wearer with D. H. S. These were very popular and were a good device for school promotion. Later on during the basketball season the Council sold mono- grammed sweatshirts to the students of D. H. S.

It was the opener for the local high school season, the first game under the coaching of Charles McCluskey, Carthage, new mem- ber of the faculty. The victors showed power ear- ly in the first quarter by punch- ing over two touchdowns. The first was on a pass, Wellman to Schultz, good for 15 yards and a touchdown, Schultz kicking the conversion. The second was on the combined efforts of Muser, Skyberg and Wellman, setting up a power play over right tackle for a touchdown. Schultz kicked the conversion, only to have it called back on an offside pen- alty, and his second attempt was short. In the second quarter the third touchdown resulted from a series of power plays. Muser. Skyberg and Wellman carried the ball in- to Egan territory and Wellman punched over center with half the Egan team on his back. Schultz's place kick was wide and the score was 19 to 0. On a pass play, Wellman to Schultz, that covered 17 yards, the second touchdown of the quarter was made. A. bad pass from center spoiled the kick and Wellman grounded the ball. The score at the end of the half was De Smet 26, Egan 0. In the middle of the third quar- ter, Wellman, behind good block- ing, passed to Schultz who gal- loped the remaining 30 yards in broken field running for the touchdown. Again Muser and Skyberg set the ball in position for Wellman to drive over cen- ter for the touchdown. Schultz's kick was wide and the score was 38 to 0. The Bulldog line proved strong, enabling Wellman to get passes away and holding Egan's vaunted power and passing attack to but three first downs in the entire game. In five attempts at pass- ing they never completed one. The Bulldogs travel to Colman for their second conference game Friday night. -N- Cheerleaders Chosen ' Monday afternoon, 'September 10, seven girls tried out for cheerleaders.

After holding Colman to no gain, De Smet gained possession of the ball and after Muser's sweep around right end for 20 yards, Wellman punched the re- maining six yards for another touchdown. Schultz kicked the point and the score was 14 to 0. De Smet again held Colman and gained possession of the ball and Lee scooted around left end for ll yards, setting up another play for Wellman to punch the re- maining yardage for another touchdown.
