CHIEFTAIN DALE KJERLUF F
On a sparkling day and with radiant spirits,
the 32nd Ki-Yi Day dawned. 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-

BAND MARCHED AND PLAYED
This was a red letter year for the Watertown High School band. 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.

ORCHESTRA ADDS CULTURAL
Elmer Carey has led the Senior High Orchestra through another successful season of
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-
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.

CHORAL GROUPS WERE
Again drawing rave notices for its brilliant performances, was the A Cappella Choir, under
the direction of Maynard Anderson. 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-

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.

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.

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.
