Upper Des Maine* Thursday, June t, 1961 ONE OF THE LOVLIEST ROOMS I have ever visited is the auditorium in Algona Community high school. This is true partly because it is a beautiful room, with its artistic carvings at the ceiling and its wonderful acoustics, but mostfly perhaps, because for me the pl'ace is haunted I Always when I sit there, waiting for a program •to begin, the songs, long sung, come echoing back to me; ithe triumphs savored there long ago return to cast itheir gflow; and I feel again the tremors of fright which make ithat large stage seem twice as big as it really is .to one facing the public upon M. * * * THE AUDITORIUM, OR RATHER THE building thait houses it, gave to me my home town — Algona. My father had the electrical contract on the high school and he decided Algona would be a> good Dlace .to settle permanently, so exactly 30 years ago my family moved lere, A few years later, I received my diploma in the auditorium. In ,hat same class of 1934 was 'the man I was to marry, but I had no dea of that then. I cried when I received the certificalte of gradua- ion for I thought it was the end of learning. They are right when hey call it commencemenlt, for although my days of formal! schooling were almost over then, education was just beginning. And some of that education has taken place in the high school auditorium . * *. * » 1$ THE AUDITORIUM, I'VE HEARD lectures and concerts; I'vz 'thrilled to plays and orchestras and I've been a part of com- inunity meetings when we've hashed out school and charity affairs There remain memories — of the late John McDowell and Minnie J. Coate, beloved high school principals; and of J. F. Overmyer at thie'end of his Hong career as superintendent and his "new" successor, Otto Laing. I see John Bishop.and Isabel Greenberg on (the sftage there in a- performance of "Everyman", directed by Ruith Messenger; and Nettie Grubb sings again as "Lelawala"; Grace Melba Miller directs her choruses again in my memory, as do Harold Weber, Del Carver, and, lately, Willard Snustad: I am again the third dancer in the fourth row as some tenor sings, "Waiting For Ships That Never Come In" in a home italent show, and Don Hutchins and Opal Bourne sing a civic performance of "The Fortune Teller". Bandmasters starting with D'Wayne Collins up to Russell Guster, wave the baton at musicians. * * * LATER. PAT COWAN AND DICK Zwiefel moved me to tears in a performance of, "A Man Called Peter"; Tom, Zender amazed me with his performance in "Death Takes A Holiday", and I swelled with pride as Pam Waller, not only played Grieg's piano concerto at Commencement,- but took several prizes for her brains as well, was pretty proud, too, at a performance of one of Ruth McVay's Kindergarten classes. The second of the "Three Little Bears" was my daughter, Mary Ann. • ' • * * * THE AUDITORIUM HOLDS SPECIAL signifigance for me again his year, for I am a parent of a graduate for the first time. Always, " know, a great deal of parental planning, hopes and dreams go into iny graduating class, but I am just beginning to fully realize this Yom personal experience.' Prejudiced as I know I must be, I think the class of 1961 is simply (loaded with brains, talent and good looks ! * * * • THERE'S KAREN ALT, TOP STUDENT, with a part-time job who according to her co-editor on .the yearbook did "three-fourths of the work"; handsome Gary Angle; George "Mickey" Balluff with 'the talent for science; Barb Bartlett, with her enthusiasm for wrestling and her politics contary to her parents'; Kathy Bay, Merit Scholarship Winner; Harriet Benschoter aiid Sharon Bilyeu.
