Ill:-. Ray Holgft
Things I Believe--
That there is no substitute for thought.
That there is need for more inductive reasoning and
less deductive reasoning.
That we must be mindful of the rights of others as
well as the needs of others.
That friendship is not bought but earned.
That a pei-son's success is determined more by the
application of the abilities he has than by the native
ability he possesses.
That initiative should always be recognized and re-
That the Golden Rule will always be a good rule to
That to be successful, it is necessary to have goals.
That mo st people use only a very small part of their
That civilization cannot exist long unless there is a
belief in the Deity.
That all people are fundamentally honest and decentg
it is only their sense of values that sometimes be-
That everyone should practice introspection. 3
We, the staff of the Bear Log, wish to set aside
this page as a memoriam to a well-known and
highly respected member of the Deadwood High
School faculty, who died early in January, 1959.
Ray H. Holst was a man of fine character with a
definite feeling of responsibility for the future
of all young people with whom he carne in contact.
However, we feel that it is not our place here to
laud and extol. We sincerely believe that Mr.
Holst's "Faculty Speaks" column, published in
the Bruin shortly before his death, brings out
the magnitude of his thoughts and his true self-
lessness in a better way than we could do with
our own words.

TWELVE YEAR STUDENTS: First row, left to right: Patsy Steinlicht, Julia Clark, Helen Pon-
tius, Arlene Jacobson. Second row: Roana Merritt, Dave Roesler, Dave Curtis. Third row:
Cal Minard, Charles Sederstrom, Adam Hudson. Fourth row: Mr. Krug and Mr. Berger, both
of whom have been with these students through their entire course of study.
In 1928, Harry S. Berger came
to the Deadwood Public School and
assumed the post of superintendent,
a position which he has held since
that tirne. In the position of superin-
tendent, Mr. Berger administers to
and directs the school as a whole.
He received his B.S. degree from
Northeast Missouri State Teachers'
College in Kirksville, Missouri and
his M.A. degree from the University
of Missouri in Colurnbia. He completed
his graduate work at the University of
Colorado in Boulder.

Robert H. Krug, principal of the Dead-
wood High School, came here in 1925. For
two years after his arrival, he was the sci-
ence and mathematics instructor in the high
school and in 1927, he was given the high-
school principalship. Since 1927, he has
worked steadily at the job of raising the
ethical standards of the students as well
as improving their scholastic standards.
He received his B.A. degree from North
Central College in Naperville, Illinois and
then went on to obtain his M. A. degree
from the University of Wisconsin.
The Student Council is a true replica in minia-
ture of the all-school governing body, the School
Board. Presided over this year by president, Judy
Cartner, the Council has accomplished several
goals which will be of lasting interest to the school
as a whole.
Perhaps the mo st important action taken by
the Council this year was the decision to set up
a memorial for the late Mr. Ray Holst who died
suddenly in the early part of the month of Janu-
ary, l959. Their drive for funds was a true suc-
cess in every sense, and their goal of an annu-
ally awarded math trophy to the highest ranking
math student in the high school is rapidly materi-
Again this year, the Council presented the
Cr le of Ethics to the students for their consider-
ation and approval.
Aiding Judy Cartner this year in the adminis-
tration of the Council were Steve Sibell, vice-
president, Randy Latimer, Secretary, and Mr.
Robert Krug, advisor.

The School Board, the governing body of Deadwood Public School as well
as of Deadwood High School, had a full year of projects this year. The presi-
dent, Elmer Pontius, led the Board into such actions as the revision of the
teachers' salary schedule. The installation of a meeting room for the Board
of Education on the first floor was one of the major projects which affected
the Board most closely. They also instigated the re-decoration of the rooms
on the second floor of the grade school building. The construction of a new
bridge on the school grounds and replacement of the roofs on the building
because of hail damage were two of the construction programs undertaken
by the Board. Secretary "Bud" Coburn aided Mr. Pontius in administering
to the Board and making possible a thoroughly successful year for both the
school and the city.

About to turn a new page in their book of life, the class of '59 looks back over its partially
completed volume and finds it filled to the brim with nurnerous incidents of fun and accomplish-
Starting with 69 members and dwindling down to 39, this class has been the smallest through
its four years, but the effect it had on the school was anything but minor. The scholars and ath-
letes of this class have given Deadwood High School many honors.
Leading the class through its four years of high school have been class presidents, Cal Min-
ard, Patsy Steinlicht, David Roesler, and Charles Sederstrom.
Classhomecoming queens were Arlene Jacobson-1955, Margie Lindstrom-1956, Julia Clark-
1957, and Leatha Heinrich-1958 senior queen. Patty Whalen, All-School Queen and her attend-
ants, Judy Cartner and Barbara Rachetto, reigned over 1958 Bear Day activities.
As juniors, the class very successfully presented "Maudie and the Opposite Sex" as their
class play. The seniors chose "Tower Room Mystery" for their final production.
Another project of this class as juniors, was the prom and banquet which was very cleverly
planned and won high commendation for its originality. The theme of the event was " Hernando's
Boys' State representative honors went to David Roesler and Stanley Hughes. Helen Pontius
was chosen as the delegate to Girls' State and was also honored with the DAR Good Citizenship
Award. Roana Merritt received the Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow award.
Four members of the class of '59 served as cheerleaders. They were Julia Clark, Patty
Whalen, Margie Lindstrom, and Judy Cartner.
The seniors finish this chapter of their life and show signs of completing their life's story
with just as happy an ending.

Highlighting the Juniors' school year was the annual Junior-Senior Prom and Banquet, planned
and sponsored by the Junior Class. The Oriental theme, "Teahouse of the August Moon, " added
much to the prom and banquet in the way of chop suey, Japanese Lanterns, and cherry trees
The class of 51 students was led this year by John Fuhrmann, elected president at the be-
ginning of the 1958-1959 school year. Also, at this time, John Fierro was elected Vice-Presi-
dent and Randy Latimer, Secretary-Treasurer.
Representing the Junior Class as their chosen queen for Bear Day activities was Susan Gil-
bert. The Junior float, "Sailing to Victory," took first place honors in the judging of the Bear
Day parade floats.
The Junior Class representatives to the Student Council for this year were Steve Sibell and
Under the direction of Miss Mary Craig, the Junior Class presented the play, "Foot-loose, "
by Charles Burdette. Proclainied an immense success by all, the play was one of the most en-
joyable events for the Junior Class as a whole.
The year was a busy and a thoroughly enjoyable one for the class. Making next year as en-
joyable is the aim of the students.

On November 8, 1958, the Junior Class presented their
production of the three -act comedy, "Foot-loose, " by Charles
The play revolves around the problems of a suburban banker,
his wife, and their four all -American children.
John Fuhrmann and Carol Benderas the parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Richard Early, have always b en overly protective to-
ward their children. Resenting it igvardly, the Early off-
spring talk their parents into leaving on a world cruise for
the good of all concerned.
With the parents gone, things begin to happen. The oldest
daughter, Hope, played by Randy Latimer, is forced to take
over the supervision of the household when Delphie, the trusted
maid, portrayed by Elizabeth Schlax, comes down with pneu-
monia and is taken to the hospital. Bill Wilson, in the role
of the oldest son, Dick, marries without his parents' consent
and brings his new wife, Ruth Hendrickson, home with him.
Mary, the coquettish high-school senior, played by Betty Gnirk,
falls madly in love with a designing college sophomore. And,
too, the general confusion is increased whenthe football-playing
son, Bob, portrayed by David Mitchell, is involved in an
automobile accident and resulting cash settlement.
When the parents return from abroad, all the troubles are
resolved as the oldest daughter is reconciled with her lawyer
fiancee, the younger daughter returns to her high-school
steady, the oldest son and his wife receive parental bless-
ing, and the riotous son solves his legal difficulties.
The other members of the cast included Michael Stangle
as Buzz Daly, Bob's chum, Steve Sibell as Randy, Mary's
high-school sweetheart, Patricia Dahlberg as Miriam, Mary's
friend, Frank Hansen as Jack Milford, the suave college lov-
er, Chan Biggs in the role of Stanford Wells, Hope's lawyer
friend, and Susan Gilbert as Mrs. Forester, a fancy-dressed,
cranky old widow. The play was heralded by all as a "re-

The Bear Day activities began at 2:00 in the afternoon on October 10th, as the entire school
was excused to attend the coronation ceremony at the armory. It opened with the traditional
processional march to the stage. Each class queen was escorted by her respective class presi-
dent. The all school queen was accompanied by Harold Hicks, the co-captain for the evening's
game with Belle Fourche.
Entertainment for the ceremony consisted of a solo presented by Cheryl Arends and a trum-
pet trio performed by Patsy Steinlicht, David Roesler, and Steve Sibell. Helen Pontius acted
as Mistress of Ceremonies for the prograrn.
The parade traveled down Main Street and then wound its way back through town, by way of
the courthouse and ended up at the school.
In the evening, the Belle Fourche Broncs traveled to Deadwood to compete with the Bears on
Ferguson Field. The all-school queen and her attendants were driven around the field during
the half-time ceremonies, while the band and the majorettes contributed to the festivities. The
annual burning of the "D" took place during the half-time period as well. The Bears lost to the
Broncs by a score of 13 to 12 for a heart-breaking, but nonetheless rewarding finale to Bear
