Students were whisked away as recruits to design business windows and white wash the streets. Everyone knew the preparation was worth the effort when they witnessed the splendor of the Legend presented by the Masque and Thespians. Tension rose in the auditorium as LaDonna Cox and Dale Kjerluff were chosen by the entire student body to reign as Prin- cess and Chieftain. Orie Leisure, as chief of Arrows, promised a fighting valor. The biggest parade in Ki-Yi history, with 28 floats, two bands, the Royalty, majorettes, and color-guard, strutted through the streets. A snake dance, consisting of the winning floats, the Royalty, band, and pep squad made its way to the stadium. When the rain began to fall, so did the Arrows as the Bucks slipped through with a 13-6 victory. Officially ending the festivities was the Ki-Yi Dance with music by Francis Hess.

STUDENT COUNCIL SETS FINE EXAMPLE Jerry Jorgenson held one of the schooI's most important offices this year - that of the Student Council President. As president, Jerry presided over the Council's weekly meetings and often opened convocations. This year five Council representatives journeyed to Huron on November 10 to attend the annual Student Council Convention. Student Government Day, this year held on February 16, is another Student Coun- cil project. For SG Day students are divided into wards and after three days of intense campaigning, during which WHS's halls are lined with campaign posters, the student body votes for a boy and a girl mayor, and boy and girl judge, and eight aldermen. On SG Day students get a taste of municipal government by actually taking over Water- town. .,--W-M ' ' f .

Senator Karl E. Mundt of South Dakota, president of the NFL, was also on hand to speak at the cere- monies. An accumulation of 17,000 points gave the Watertown chapter the Leading Chapter Award for the second time in 12 years. Initiation of new members was held in March.

At the first public appear-f ance on Ki-Yi Day the 75 band members were sporting snappy new purple and gold uniforms. The double breasted gold jackets and purple trousers were set off by gold K'West Point" caps with purple plumes. White bucks and gold socks added to the striking appearance of precision marching by the band. But with all the finery, the band did not rest on its laurels as musicians. In fact it might well be said that it was inspired to new heights by the new costumes. Besides playing for all home football and basketball games and pep meetings, the band lent its talents to the Hobo Day Parade at South Dakota State College in Brookings on October 31. The musicians also per- formed with the Brookings High School band at the Arrow-Bobcat football game in Brookings. The sectional basketball tournament in Webster was enlivened by the band's popular rendition of "Rock Around the Clock." Performances by the band at the Fall, Midwinter and Spring concerts were well received by the public as was the appearance at the Music Festival in Milbank. Band officers for the year were Mary Pulscher, president, John Miles, vice-president, Har- lan Stein, secretary-treasurer, and Ed White, seargeant at arms. Armond Pappone wielded his talented baton as director of the group. Several band members were selected to go to All-State Band at Sioux Falls. John Miles, baritone horn player, has been an All-State Band member for four years. 62 ? il Q -s RV . 1 l.l I , S9 1 5. ff Y if if xr r if 3 V A i fn 1 5 Q, is x f 'gg 'Q' 1' ' 3 Q 7 K A ,.

Starting with the orchestra's first appearance at the Fall Concert and continuing through a school convocation, the Midwinter Concert, and the final Spring Concert, the "Little Symphony" added a cultural touch to the lives of both WHS students and towns- people. The group provided an orchestral background for both the Junior and Senior Class Play. It also lent its harmonies to the Music Festival in Milbank. The string ensemble added a unique touch to the Christmas concert when they accompanied the Mixed Chorus. Members of the ensemble include Lylah Hayford, Mar- ilyn Magner, Inari Numminen, and Florence Sikkink, violinsg Darrell Bale and Joanne Nelson, violasg Linda Hertz, cellog and Carol Sue Hagen, piano. Sixteen members of the orchestra contributed their talents to the annual All-State Chorus and Orchestra which was held in Aberdeen. But the Orchestra's big moment came when, with the strains of "March Militaire," it ushered the class of '56 to its Commencement. Lylah Hayford was selected president of the group by orchestra members. Inari Numminen was elected to the vice-presidency. Marilyn Magner is secretary and Phyllis Anderson serves as treasurer. 64 f 'Q N S S .nf ' lk M EQ.-W, 1 f. gg 5' L 5 I, A i YS .

The Choir's appearances at the Fall, Midwinter, and Spring Concerts were applauded by appreciative audiences. At the Hi-Y sponsored Thanksgiving and Christmas convocations, A Cappe1la's music added the necessary reverent touch. A Cap- pella members represented WHS at All-State Chorus, and the entire 70 voice group was in attendance at the Music Festival in Milbank. Mixed Chorus, also under the direction of Mr. Anderson, sang at all four annual concerts and competed at the Music Festival. The 82 voice chorus was accompanied at the Christmas Concert by the string ensemble. The members also performed at the annual Ki-Yi Kapers student vaude- ville show. Eighty-two voices were lifted in song twice a week when the Girls' Glee Club rehearsed under the direction of Maynard Anderson. Singing for the Fall, Christmas, Midwinter, and Spring Concerts and appearing at the Music Festival were among the many activities of the organization. A new small group ensemble joined the Boy's Octet, Aeolians, and Cecilians, this year. This nine voice girls' group is call the Melodears. They, along with the other small groups, per- formed at a school convocations, service clubs, and at the Music Contest. 68 x S . A is gi '50, 5, S3 V mlm 7' 3 0, .. M w Q ' nm' E 5 SN!! ill!!

ARROWS FINISH SEASON WITH 6-3 RECORD Watertown's 1955 football season opened with a four-day camp at Pickeral Lake, sixty miles north of Watertown. Spirit, team co-operation, and desire were woven into the minds of the boys attending this "boot training." A long trip to Sioux City resulted in defeating the powerful East team 7-6. This was the game the Arrows had trained so hard for. The following week Huron was handed a 33-7 loss by a determined Watertown ball club. The Golden Eagles of Aberdeen received the same treatment with a 22-7 defeat. A well-organized Ki-Yi day brought with it the usual street painting and captivating floats, but was saddened by a 13-6 loss to the Yankton bucks. The fancy running of Cathedral High's backfield accounted for Watertown's second de- feat, 26-18. Mitche1l's defeat over Watertown, 27-26 provided the most thrilling entertainment of the year. Bouncing back from a three-game losing streak, the Arrows conquered Brookings 26-13. Watertown High ended its E.S.D. competition by defeating the Madison bulldogs 33-19 and thus tied for second place in the conference with Aberdeen and Yankton. The Arrows closed their football year by trouncing the Flandreau Indians 33-0. Gene Alexander, the Arrow's hard-charging fullback, was the top scorer in the E.S.D. with 60 points. The Arrows had no real outstanding players this year. The ability and potential was balanced throughout the whole team and it was by combining these two factors that the Arrows accomplished what they did. 74 VOGT FIGHTS FOR YARDAGE AS HEATHCOTE 1813 CO-CAPTAIN S GENE ALEXANDER AN DICK PAULSON 'Q 75 DICK PA ULSON tw!! fpffff 1 MM 1701 yew' pmol MW if qfdfb QW 18 i H L p JAKE KRULL JOHN MILES JERRY KRANZ TOM FRANKENHOFF KEITH HANSON GENE ALEXANDER GOES DOWN FIGHTING AGAINST MITCHELL BRUCE WILLIAMS HAROLD SUTHERLAND x E..

ARROWS FINISH IN E S D CELLAR When Jim Marking took over the reins of head basketball coach at WHS, he was confronted with only four returning lettermen and a promising crop of underclassmen. Despite this lack of experience, the Arrows got off to a whirlwind start defeating Sioux Falls Cathedral 52-50 and Brookings 64-59. But Yankton upset the applecart with a heart- breaking thriller squeezing by the Arrows 53-50. Watertown returned to the warpath by soundly trouncing Webster 72-60. With the Christmas holidays at hand, the Arrows trailed off into a dismaying slump losing decisively to Aberdeen 43-29 and to Huron 79-59. In the holiday tournament at Sioux Falls the Arrows lost to Belle Fourche and Lead. With the return to school a fired-up Arrow team came from a ten point deficit to upset Mitchell. This proved to be the last win of the regular season for the young inexper- ienced Watertown team as they dropped their next game to Madison 59-47 and then went on to lose to Sioux Falls Washington 59-50, Brookings 50-46, Yankton 67-62, and Aberdeen 66-46. The Arrows, scrapping fiercely to the final gun, dropped a close one to a topnotch Huron team by the score of 48-45. After losing to Mitchell 57-51, the team came within two points of downing the ESD king, Madison, being defeated 52-51 in the final ten sec- onds of play. Completing the regular season with a loss to Sioux Falls, the Arrows went to the sectional with high hopes. In the first game, they breezed by Milbank, soundly thrashing them 76-51. In the championship game, however, Sisseton's phenomenal shoot- ing ended the Arrows season, as the Redmen scored a 68-57 victory. Although the team's season record does not show it, the whole season was not a failure. The young Arrows gained valuable experience and know-how which will enable Coach Marking's crew to give the Watertown fans plenty of thrills in future years. 79 n Orie Leisure Morrie Hanson i293 and Jake Krull C27J' cage a Huron Tiger.

DeWlTT IS NEW HEAD OF WHS TRACKSTERS With the event of spring also comes the call of the outdoors for the tried and true track men of WHS. Headed by a new coach, John DeWitt, the cindermen took to the field officially on March 12. Spearheaded by eleven returning lettermen, the Arrows had a good season. Track is of such a nature that you can find a niche for yourself no matter what your physical endowments may be. Even though track is considered a minor sport in the field of athletics, it still remains one of the leading sports in the training and develop- ing of young men.
