were arranged. The girls assisted with the

The school also boasted a chorus, or-

the annual Music Festival, at that time
sponsored by one of the Hickory Stick clubs .

Junior-senior banquets continued to be held
in the school or at the hotels. Themes and
decorations became more colorful and elaborate.
Records give evidence of banquets to honor
the Basketball squads. These were sometimes
given by individual "fans" who were interested
in the teams.
Added to the Junior, Senior, and One-act
plays were the grade and high school operettas,
produced annually beginning in 1931 and con-
tinuing through the 3O's.
After a lapse of many years, senior class
days were resumed in 1937. The programs con-
sisted ofthe class will, history, prophecy, the
giving of letters, and presentation of awards.
Camivals began in 1932 and were first held
in conjunction with the presentation of the Junior
Play. Later they became a full evenings entertain-
ment with short skits by the grade school preceding
The,first annual, published in 1937, was
a paper-bound volume containing all the issues
of the Hill Top Flashes . Pictures were pasted in
by individuals after receiving their annuals.
The 1938 yearbook was the first to be published
by a printer, the Will A . Beach Company. It
was a twenty-five page volume. The yearbook
was called, with the exception of 1949 when it
was named the Viking, the Cactus until 1953.
The title was then changed to the Viking and has
remained so since .
