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.

Veren received his B. E. degree from the University of

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-
