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.

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.
