This year's theme and dedication are quite closely related since both inv ve
teachers and education.
In past years we have dedicated annuals to well loved students who met untimely
and unfortunate deaths, and to such worth while ideas and ideals as the search for
peace or the extension of man's physical and mental universe. Last year we dedicated
the annual to a number of people, not faculty members, who have served the school
is ar we hope our annual presents a fair picture of the studies and activities
hw belie e for well rounded individuals. Our theme, then, is an education
e p .se t g he year and the day of the student. It is dedicated by the staff to
have made this school year and school day a rich and satisfying ex-
8 xy o he
R A fe ' nce.
H In mak' g this dedication to our teachers, we would like to mention three individu-
als who have served the school and students well--two are former teachers and one
is a former janitor. Miss Olive Smith and Mrs. Kathryn Wardman taught for many
years in this school. They lavished the kind of love and the kind of teaching upon the
young people of Deadwood which has made for at least three generations of fine citi-
zens. The janitor mentioned is John Chovaniec. John Chovaniec loved his work. He
often said, 'Work is my life." His years of service helped Deadwood to have an un-
usually neat school and all of us know that students do better work in clean surround-
The students' year and day are just ahead. Please join us on this trip through

Someone once said that variety is the spice of life. Any
annual editor is willing to agree to this but will be quick to
add that variety in yearbooks requires a lot of thought.
In previous years we have pictured our teachers in school
surroundings. This year for the sake of variety we took pic-
tures of our faculty members in their homes with their fami-
lies. We hope you like them.

THE CLASS 0F '54
'The cream of the crop,'
But, the cream supreme!
Our class history goes back to the year 1950. A large group of 'fgreen' freshmen was ushered into DHS,
56 to be exact. Our newly elected class officers were: Kay Roberts, president: Dick Dunwiddie, vice-
presidentp and Carole Rypkema, secretary-treasurer. Student Council Representatives were David Klein
and Carole Rypkema. Carole Rypkema was chosen as the frosh queen to reign over her 'Bronc Stew,"
the theme of the float. Bonnie Roebuck won the English award.
-- Time Passes--
When we were sophs, we were really on our way to the top. At that time, we chose Jeannine Cowles to
sit atop our 'DHS Birthday Cake." Jeannine Cowles and Reece Palmer represented the sophomore class
in Student Council. Officers of the class were: Eddie Morris, president: Reece Palmer, vice president,
and Jeannine Cowles, secretary-treasurer. Then came the proposition of making money for our future
banquet. As the situation stood, we needed money--badly! The Board of Wisdom ca.me up with a clever
idea for a dance: a Sadie Hawkins Day knee. Spring came at last, and guess what! lteam went to the
state 'A' basketball tournaments. On the team were: Eddie Morris, David Klein, Reece Palmer, John
Smiley, and Bill Jones. Kay Roberts was elected drum majorette by the bandg and, at the awards assem-
bly in May, Ellen Morris received the sophomore English award, while Bonnie Roebuck and Kay Shama
received the Home Economics awards.
We made it! We were finally juniors! The class chose for their 'Queen of Hearts," Ann Jordan. Student
Council representatives were Dick Dunwiddie and Gail Williamson, while our class officers were: David
Klein, president, John Smiley, vice-president, and Loyola Moser, secretary-treasurer. The first "five"
on the basketball team consisted of junior boys!
Our class play, "The Little Dog Laughed' was very successful and the financial standing for the junior-
senior banquet was rather good. The juniors chose as their theme of the banquet, "Springtime in Paris."
Many awards and achievements were earned this year. Kay Shama was assistant editor of the Bruin while
her colleague, Kay Roberts, was assistant editor of the Bear Log. Carole Rypkema. fwith Marie Besharal
went to the semi-finals'in the regional debate tourney at Philip. Ellen Morris won the English Award and
Bonnie Roebuck was chosen as the 1953 Girls' State representative. Boys' State' delegates were Eddie
Morris and Reece Palmer.
We had only 37 members in the graduating class. But, remember, there isn't quality in numbers. 'Jean-
nine My Queen' at football time was the popular melody Bear Day. Jeannine Cowles, all school queen of
1953, and her attendants, Carole Rypkerna and Gail Williamson served such a fabulous reign that the 1953
football squad fof which six were seniorsj went on to win the Black Hills Conference Football Champion-
ship. Not only that, but they became the only team in DHS history to remain undefeated during any one
Frances Wagner was the senior queen and became a vivid memory in our book of 'Memories of DHS."
Our class officers were Reece Palrner, president, Cal Geary, vice-president: and Frances Wagner, sec-
retary-treasurer. Student Council representatives were Eddie Morris and Carole Rypkema who were
president and secretary-treasurer, respectively, of this group.
Fame was equally shared by members of the basketball and debating squads in their 1954 season. The
basketball tearn placed second in the Black Hills Conference race. Four seniors: Bill Jones, Reece Pal-
mer, Eddie Morris, and David Klein helped make this possible. Incidentally four of the five cheerleaders
this year were seniors: Frances Wagner, Kay Roberts, Marcia Pavlich, and Jeannine Cowles.
The debate tea.m cornposed of Carole Rypkema and Bonnie Roebuck tnegative side, and Marcia Kay Pav-
lich and Gail Williamson faffirmative side, were awarded a trip to the state NFL tournamext in March
as a result of their arduous work throughout the season.
The Christmas Ball, sponsored by the senior class, carried out the theme: 'Over the River and Through
Kay Roberts and Betty Wells, co-editors of the Bear Log and Kay Shams, editor of the Bruin,all did ex-
Bonnie Roebuck was winner of the local and Lawrence county DAR Good Citizenship award.
The senior class has participated in all of the music festivals and Christrnas plays. The pep band played
at the Section 8 tournaments. The class colors are red and white, the class flower the red and white car-
nation, and the class motto is 'Finishedg ready to begin.
We've had a wonderful time during our four years at DHS, and we extend our best wishes to you---the
future senior classes.

and won the conference championship for the first time in the school's history. During the season
the Bears won five and tied one. The Bears scored a total of 195 points and only had 59 points
scored against them.
Six seniors are leaving this year's team and they can certainly feel proud of their record.
These seniors are: Reece Palrner, Bill Jones, Eddie Morris, John Smiley, Don Gabel and Al John-
Bill Jones, one of the Bears, had a great honor bestowed on him. He was made captain of the

Although we couldn"t possibly know it when we were celebrating our 1953-54 homecoming, we
were to go through the football season undefeated for the first time in fifty years. Of course we
knew we had a lovely queen and charming attendants -------

We hope this book has given a fair picture of the studies,
activities, and fun in this year of 1953-54. It has been a good
Fun and activities build pleasant memories for later years.
Study makes for a rich full life. Since this is true, we thought
we would close our book with two silhouette pictures, one to
represent the girl students of DHS and one to represent the
boy students of DHS.
Our title for this picture is:
