Carol has shared some wonderful visual memories with us.
Beginners Luck Is
Recalled by Teens
   Curiosity finally got the best of this Tower reporter and a few of the Knights and Ladies of this Castle were asked the question:
   "What I remember about my first date." The following statements are the facts and just the facts!!
● Eddie Steiner ─ "It was kinda dull!!"
● Eleanor Nelson ─ "I had to walk!"
● Tom Creel ─ "She wasn't very cute and I didn't have a very good time!"
Barbara Pierce ─ "I had to pay my own carfare."
● Luann Mitchell ─ "My feet hurt."
● Louis Eckstein ─ "I had a wonderful time."
● Betty Nelson ─ "I wore my first pair of nylons!!"
● Kay Harkins ─ "I couldn't remember my date's last name so I could introduce him to my parents."
● Carol Hamarstrom ─ "Wow!"
● Carol Means ─ "It wasn't very ex-citing."
● Joann Fish ─ "I went to the show with his folks."
Chit Chat
   Liz Crosby's house was the scene of a bang up birthday party. Carol Hamarstrom, Nanette Preston, Carolyn Stewart, Carol Gain and Sandra Steele were a few of the many senior gals having a grand time
All of these articles came from issues
of the Tower published our senior year.
Chit Chat
   Mary Lou Alexander, Oletha Ludwig, Louie Erickson, Claudia Horn, Leann Riggs were some of the girls I saw eating and talking (of course) at a birthday party. In case you're wondering, it was Carol Hamarstrom's 18th birthday
   The Christmas holidays will be extra happy for Kay Harkins, Mary Lou Alexander, Luann Mitchell, Shirley Fenton, Dixie Leone, and Carol Hamarstrom.  Looks like Santa is bringing Sonny, George, Bob, Tom, Conrad, and Raymond back home.
   Here's wishing all you crazy Knights and Ladies a "Cool Yule? and a "Frantic First."
Hill to Head Crusader;
Eckstein, Eichman Aids
   At the beginning of the new school year our Crusader Staff promptly began work. Mr. Tira supervisor, chose the staff: Danny Hill, editor, Louis Eckstein and Don Eichman, assistant co-editors; Mary Louise Erickson, secretary and business manager; Ann Atchinson, literary editor; Lois Garner and Darlene Stanley, art editors; Oletha Ludwig, senior editor; Leann Riggs, junior editor; Shirley Fenton, sophomore editor; Carol Gain, freshman editor, Jane Seitz, eight grade editor; Carol Hamarstrom, clubs and activities; Phyllis Graf, athletics. With this staff, we can be looking forward to an outstanding Crusader in '54.
Carol and Dan Stanley   Party, Party, Party. When did you study?
These "charming" members of the varsity football and basketball teams sang and danced to "Clementine".
These "boys" led by Coach Patterson (Carol Hamarstrom) sang and danced "You've Gotta be a Football Hero".
On a More Serious Note
Oletha Ludwig presents a plaque inscribed: To the team we love best, Mr. McMillan and Mr. Powell from the class of '54. Clark Smith presents the Class of '54 Shield to the Class of '55.
