THF B AR l06 FOR 1956
This year we have chosen "Nature" as a theme for our annual. Whether one has stopped to think
about the influence of our natural environment or not, its influence is there.
Often in late autumn I have overheard a group of fellows in study hall talking. One says, "Well
I finally got my buck. " Another says, "Boy, you should have seen the one Tommy shot- -five pointer:
dressed out at 200 pounds! "
Gradually the talk of pheasant, duck, and deer seasons fades away, put into the background by the
ermine blanket of deep winter, and thoughts turn to skiing and skating--from Terry Peak Slope to lo-
cal hillside, from Blacktail Rink to beaver pond.
Then in years gone by if the first of May fell upon a school day, it was declared a holiday and all
went fishing. The usually crystalline streams, bordered by water seeking spruce, might be muddy
with spring thaws. The "purist" fly fisherman in that case, after a covert look around, sometimes
whipped out a number six hook, put on some garden hackle, and continued his pursuit of Brook, Loch,
Just as the sheltering hills shut out the dry and burning prairie winds of summer and the bitter
frigidity of winter's winds, they also close around us with beauty beyond description--streams of
pristine purity, autumns made rich by golden leaved birch and aspen, majestic pines, flat topped
with age, pines that were standing when George Washington crossed the Delaware, pines that stood
when the Sioux came to their sacred Pahasapa hunting grounds.
Because of our love and enjoyment of nature and its influence upon our lives, we have employed a
nature theme. Please join us on our trip through nature's realm.

FOR THE BEAR l06 STAFF

DEADWO0D, SOUTH DAKOTA
We of the 1956 2292-Liog staff wish to dedicate this annual tothe memory of
Coach Stewart Ferguson who died suddenly on December 29, 1955. For eleven
years "Fergie" gave his best to us not only as a. coach but also as a history
teacher. His industriousness, kind heartedness, syrnpathy and understanding
won for hirn a. place in the hearts of all who knew him.

ADMIN! TRATORS1 FAU!! TY ARE
H. S. Berger, Superintendent of Deadwood Public Schools
since 1928, received his B. S. degree at Northeast State
Teachers College and his M. A. degree at the University
of Missouri. This school year, like the last, has been un-
usually busy for Mr. Berger. Overseeing the completion
of Deadwood High's armory--auditorium has occupied
many hours of his tixne over and above his regular duties.
He enjoys golf, dogs the has two, Bobby and Frecklesj,
Principal R. H. Krug came to Deadwood High School in1925.
Mr. Krug received his B. A. degree at North Central Col-
lege, Naperville, Illinois, and his M. A. degree at the Un-
iversity of Wisconsin. Other than his regular duties, Mr.
Krug acts as adviser to the student council. D. H. S. students
know their principal as a ma.n who is firm, fair, and who has
a kindly sense of hurnor. In his leisure hours, he is an ex-
cellent fly fisherman.
Miss Lola. Kersten, Secretary of Deadwood Public Schools
since 1935, is a friendly and efficient person whom all
know and like. She and her dad spend many surnmer hours
at Tomahawk Country Club. When asked her score for 18
holes, she replied, "As ex-president Truman so frequently
remarked--no comment. "
After an active career of school work and extra. curriculars,
Mary Rotter, an "o1d grad" of 1955, has assumed an im-
portant post in D. H. S. , Secretary to Mr. Krug. Welcome
OREST RANGER 0F DJ-l.S.
Franklin Brainard, English, social science, and publications
teacher, became a member of Deadwood's faculty in 1946.
Mr. Brainard, an ex-merchant mariner, received his B. A.
at Jamestown College, Jamestown, North Dakota, and his
M. A. degree at the University of North Dakota. His photo-
graphy hobby is, in part, an outgrowth of his work as ad-
viser for the lag-M125 He is also adviser for the Bruin.
Pictured he re with him is senior, Paula Engebretson, who
edits the Bruin.
Basketball coach, Glenn Burgess, came to D. H. S. in 1952.
Mr. Burgess, who also teaches physical education and as-
sists in coaching football, earned his B. A. degree at Black
Hills Teachers College. Like Mr. Krug, Mr. Burgess is a
fine fly fisherman, though there has been a rurnor circulat-
ing that he was once caught fishing for trout with worms.
Mr. Burgess is shovsm discussing a "two-one-two" with jun-
ior basketballer Ray Jones.
Deadwood High School's instrumental music program is con-
ducted by LaVerne Clark. Mr. Clark, who joined the faculty
in 1949, is an active and excellent musician himself. Through
his efforts Deadwood High's band has made great strides
forward and Deadwood's new armory-auditorium will be the
site of All State Band for 1957. Mr. Clark earned his B. E.
degree at Black Hills Teachers College. Pat Williamson,
junior, is shown getting some special instruction.
Deadwood High's science teacher, George Conklin, began
work here in 1948. Mr. Conklin received his B. A. from
Mount Union College, Alliance, Ohio. Mr. Conklin, though
he may not have a "Gold Mine In The Sky" does run the Bro-
ken Boot Gold Mine, a local tourist attraction, during the
suxnmer months. Both he and Mrs. Conklin are active in
church work. Mr. Conklin is telling senior, Kurt Machler,
which way Reddy Kilowatt went.
Music and draxnatics teacher, Mary Craig, canie to Dead-
wood in1929. She has a B. A. degree from Black Hills
Teachers College and an M. A. from the University of Wy-
oming. Though, as a dramatist, Miss Craig deals with the
sad mask as well as the happy one, we in school see only the
happy one. She constantly surprises students, faculty, and
public with the variety of play fare presented. Arne Sjorne-
ling, one of Miss Craig's senior thespians, gets a coat of
Mrs. Louise M. Farrens began teaching in Deadwood in
1955. She holds a B. S. in education from the University
of Nebraska. Mrs. Farrens teaches English and Latin.
She is pictured here helping student Yvonne Lee with an
English assignment. Home and children are Mrs. Farrens
Mrs. Edna Ferguson, school librarian and English teacher,
carne to Deadwoodl-HghSchool in l-944. Sie received her B. A.
degree from Arkansas A. 8: M. Here she is showing Sharon
Farrens how to use the card catalogue. What does she do for
a hobby? Why read of course.
Eldon Gran, master of trenchant wit, joined Deadwood
in 1953. This commercial teacher received his B. S. degree
at Black Hills Teachers College and was formerly employed
as local grade school principal. Here he is overseeing Jolyn
Kimble's work on the adding machine.
"Please, Miss Rachetto make your point more firxnly. " One
can just imagine Mr. Lowden Heller saying this to the lady
at the lectern. Mr. Heller, who teaches English, speech, and
debate, likes to fly, to fish, and to golf. He says he is going
to learn to ski. This organizer of"Deadwood High On The
Air" took his B. A. at the University of South Dakota. This
year is his first in Deadwood.
J. Ora Horsfall checks Chuck Hendrickson's mechanical
drawing. Mr. Horsfall has held the manual arts post since
1929. He received his B. E. degree from Plattsville State
College, Plattsville, Wisconsin. Mr. Horsfall enjoys golf,
but finds ve ry little time to play. Why? Well, he and Mrs.
Horsfall are too busy--running Tomahawk Golf Course
Miss Lucie Jensen, mathematics teacher, began teaching
at Deadwood High School in 1947. She is pictured here with
Gary Collins, overseeing his framing project. Each year
she has her students experiment with the construction of
varied geometric forrns--bridges, towers, and Christmas
mobiles. Miss Jensen received her B. S. degree from the
University of Washington.
Mrs. R. H. Krug is shown here giving instruction to Dar-
leen Lester. Elsie Krug, Girls' Physical Education Instruc-
tor since 1936, obtained her B. S. degree from the Univer-
sity of South Dakota. What does she do as a hobby? You
guessed itg fishes for the wily trout with her husband, Prin-
cipal R. H. Krug.
' Mr. Donald Swanson, Deadwood's B. M. O. C. , holds a B. A.
degree from the University of the South at Sewanee, Ten-
nessee. Though usually an English-drama teacher, he is
at present teaching some social science and history. He en-
' joys directing plays, reading, and music. Shown here get-
ting the special word from Mr. Swanson about general bus-
iness is Douglas Luger.
Miss Jean Van Heuvelen, home economics teacher at Dead-
wood High since 1946 is shown here discussing a pattern with
Romell Kaelbe rer. Incidentally, the dress Romell is wearing
is one she made under Miss Van Heuvelen's direction. Miss
Van Heuvelen received her B. S. degree from Dakota Wes-
Merlyn W. Veren, assistant basketball coach, gives Peter
Loveridge, seventh grader, some pointers on guarding. Mr.
Veren received his B. E. degree from the University of
South Dakota. An all round sports participant, Mr. Veren
turns to golf during the surnmer. This is his second year
on the faculty of D. H. S.
It goes almost without saying that people who produce annuals strive for as much variety in pictures,
make-up, and content as is possible.
For years we have tried to vary faculty pictures, to show different phases of teachers' lives. We
have used pictures at desks, formal portraits, and family pictures. This year we thought ofourteach-
ers as forest rangers, helping to plan for Deadwood's most precious naturalasset--its youth. In
keeping with this nature theme idea and with a desire to be journalistically straightforward, we tried
to present in each picture a teacher and a student in some typical relation. Then, too, since the re-
lationship of today's student and teacher tends toward less formality, we endeavored to present in-

The major projects of the Deadwood School Board for the 1955-56 school year were the gymna-
sium-armory-auditorium, grade school annex and hot lunch program, driver education course, and
the purchase of band uniforms.
The armory which cost a total of S283, 000. 00 will seat 2200 people for basketball games, 3000 for
music festivals or conventions, and 600 people for banquets. The armory will be completed about
the first of May.
The completion of the S86, 000. 00 grade school annex was a much needed addition to the Deadwood
school system. It alleviated crowded conditions in the elementary school and provided us with three
class rooms and an excellent hot lunch room. This hot lunch program has been heartily received,
averaging 180 persons per day.
The school board has approved the addition of a driver education course to next years curriculum
is course will begin with textbook work at the beginning of the second semester, and the actual
driving instruction will be offered during the su.mmer months.

the better the future staffs will be.

Inexpe rience marked the Deadwood Bears at the beginning of this years season but the Bears
kept improving under the able leadership of Coach Ferguson and Coach Burgess. The Bears finished
the season with two wins, three losses and two ties.
The Bears opened the season by falling to the Gillette Camels 19-6 at Gillette, Wyoming. The
team then traveled to Hot Springs and took on the Bison in their first conference game. The Bears
made fewer mistakes against Hot Springs but still fell. The score was 14-0. Deadwood next met the
Belle Fourche Broncs at Spearfish and evened up their conference record to one win and one loss.
The score of this game was Z0-19.
Next week, homecoming, the Bears met a much heavier Spearfish team and the two teams played
to a 13-13 tie. This garne along with the Lead game were probably the two most outstanding games
played by the Bears this year.
The Bears seemed to let dovm against Sturgis and cou1dn't seem to get their offense started until
the last quarter. Deadwood fell to Sturgis 14-6.
Deadwood again traveled to the Southern Hills, this tirne to take on Custer in the Bears fifth con-
ference game. The Bears won the game 13-12 even though they had two touchdowns called back.
The Deadwood Bears climaxed the 1955-56 football season by tying Lead 7-7. The Bears went
into the game against the conference champs as underdogs, but the fighting spirit of the Deadwood
boys stopped the Diggers powerful ground attack.
All in all the season was a successful one and a lot of the success of the Deadwood Bears in the

TROUBIE WITH Tl-IE TREE
On November 10, in the High School Auditori-
um, the junior class presented "We Shook the
Family Tree," written by Perry Clark.
ln this three-act comedy, Hildegarde, played
by Jill Anfinson, is desperately trying to attract
an eligible senior boy, for she has no date for the
big school dance. When the other girls begin to
throw this up to her, Hildegarde's mother, Judy
Semrrv ons, takes action. She tells Hildegarde
not to worry since she knows just the boy who
would be very happy to take her to the dance.
Though Hildegarde doesn't know the boy's name,
she boasts, before the other girls, making him
sound like a glarnorous, Hollywood type. Imagine
her surprise when she finds out that her date is
Freddie Shermer, her father's boss's son and
the only boy in school who wears knickers!
Freddie, the "cool" date, was played by Larry
To add to this hurnorous situation and to all the
other is Sally, played by Marlyne Kuykendall,
Hildegarde's younger sister, who helps her turn
the town upside down, Bob, her older brother,
who has a passion for fishing, Jerry Pontius,
Jimmie, played by Don Gross, who invents hil-
arious gadgets, Mother, Judy Semmonsg Father,
Ronnie Henneng Ellie May, Jeannie Clevelandg
Jill, Pat Williarnsong Paige, LaRee Redinger,
Mr. and Mrs. Shermer, played by Charles Ed-
rnudson and Nancy Newell, who insist on knickers
and Freddie, their son.
