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.
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.
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.

We Are Proud to Present . . .
Our "Ch1e of Operations" of D. H. S.
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.
