Lithographed by COMMUNITY PRESS Orem, Utah
As the sun slowly ascends from the east after having pushed the last mists of darkness from
her grasp, school buses start opening their doors to release their harbored passengers. Excitement
lingers in the air. Sophomores are frightened, not much, but a little bit. They look at the
beautiful new school and think, "Gee, if we only Tiad grass now." Then quickly their thoughts
turn to what they are going to do. What if they can't find their classes? Where is the music department,
and where's room 231? On the contrary, the seniors are bold and confident. After all,
they've been through this experience before. And with the juniors, the seniors and sophome*85*'^

An estimated 40,000 persons lined the parade route during
Peach Days as the Box Elder Chamber of Commerce staged
the longest parade and biggest celebration in the history of
Brigham City. Box Elder High contributed two marching
groups, the B'Ettes and Rockettes, the marching band, three
class floats, and car entries from each club and organization.
The Class of LXIII's float, "Roma Antiqua,"
captured third place in the Peach Days float
contest. The float was portrayed in brilliant
shades of chartreuse and silver. Plans for the
float were designed by Phil Nelson with
Carolyn Hansen helping as co-chairman. Work
began in Barbara Bott's garage, but the fin -
ished product, illustrating Roman gallantry
w ith a chariot led by two brilliant horses
made of paper-mache emerged from under
the wings of Box Elder High.
The w o rk was supervised by the class
parents, Mrs. Rosamond Sleigh and Jordan
Larsen. We all worked together to produce
another outstanding float for the Class of '63.
A contrast to the abstract designing of the
junior class float was Judi Oss, adding a
touch of earthliness to an otherwise "O ut of
this W orld," as the float was called, creation.
Those w ho worked on it still refer to it as
"the horseshoe, boomerang, box, and flow -
ers." It was done in shades of blue and pink.
O riginality and free-style expression were
used in its planning. Kim Butze was chairman
and Susan Valentine was co-chairman.
A fter many headaches, thrills, and cokes,
the float was finished and came from its hiding
place behind the Capitol theater. Class
parents, Miss Fern Gardner and Tom Davis,
supervised the work. The juniors w ill never
forget the tim e they spent working on their
Behind the closed doors of the high school
shop a magnificent creation was in the making.
Piece by piece the materials were assembled.
The sophomores watched proudly
as their float took shape. Although they didn't
have any class parents as yet, Mr. Grant
Moser supervised their construction. Later
Mrs. Marion Hicks became class mother.
As w ork continued on the float, shades of
lavender and pink came into view . Class o f-
ficers, Louis Christensen, Diane Shelton, and
Karen Bush acted as chairmen.
At last the float blossomed forth under the
title of "Stairways to Success," portraying
steps leading to a book of knowledge.
Jose Francisco Arias Nunez, or jusl
plain Francisco, was our foreign exchange
student fro m Costa Rica. Fie came from a
fam ily of three brothers and two sisters.
He lived w ith Mr. and Mrs. Francis Todd
and his new brother and sister, Larry and
Loreen Todd. In Costa Rica he w e n t to an
all boys' school. No homework was given
and the only studying done outside of
class was fo r major tests. Francisco has
won a place in the hearts of every Box
Elder student and faculty member. He
was chosen as M r. Hello during Hello
Week. The girls chose him as the boy
most wanted to be found in their Christmas
stockings on Christmas morning.

The day had fina lly come. The town was alive, w ith
dashes of purple and w hite paint on every sidewalk and
on clothing in many mothers' washings. Students' enthusiasm
rose during the pep rally and they let their emotions
go as the senior boys battled the junior boys in a
tug of war. The fire department furnished the water that
soaked more seniors than juniors.
As game time approached, the excitement hit a higher
key. The B'lvers lit the bonfire and a bear, representing
our rival, Bear River, was burned. Shouts of joy rose as
the last of the bear turned to ashes. As the game began
we noticed how big the Bears looked next to our Bees.
We felt a sprinkle of rain. Gusts of wind blew papers
across the field. Although a light fuse blew out and the
half-time was ruined, the game was exciting, ending in

"Harvest Times Around the W orld" was the theme for the
'62-'63 Harvest Ball. The assembly represented countries all
over the w orld. Music fo r the dance was furnished by the Collegiate
Q uintet from Logan.
The sophomore-sponsored Christmas dance was held after
the final showing of the all-school variety show. The theme
was "Christmas Cheer." They danced to the music of the Cache

"Has anybody seen my gloves?" was the cry coming
from the speech room as the girls readied themselves for
their performances on the variety show.
Under the direction of Mrs. Fontell Messervy, "Happy
Holiday" was presented. The audience was thrilled at the
talent illustrated as each season passed to their view. A ll
in all, the variety show was a joy to all who spent hours
rehearsing, to those who came to see and hear it, and to
all faculty members, who spent many hours in preparation.

The senior play, "A ll My Sons," was one of emotion and stark
tragedy. It was devoid of the "escape from realism" that-has plagued
our time. Joe Keller, portrayed by John Nabors, was a successful
businessman w ho developed a callous insensitivity to life. This didn't
matter until a situation arose which made him realize that being just
"A light moment" a " |jft|e b jf" dishonest can destroy one and those around him.

"The Late Christopher Bean" was put on in the little theatre
because of its intimate drama, so that every word and expression
could be heard. It is the true life story of one of France's greatest
painters in an American setting with American characters. Mr. Bean
lived, painted, and died at Dr. Haggett's place. He became famous
after he died. The theme is: it is characteristic of humanity to appreciate
our great painters after they die.

Under the handicap of losses due to graduation
last year, L. J. Sylvester did a fine job of rebuilding our
wrestling team. Although we won only'four meets, one
man went to state, and the team grew stronger with
each meet. Both team and coach are looking forw ard
to a better year next year with more experience and
strong school support.

year, placing fifth in the state and breaking three

record, the "Fish" placed second in region and
second in the state qualifying meet. A very good
showing for a growing sport at Box Elder. Congratulations.

As the closing strains of "Now is the Hour" echoed
through the new auditorium, we, the seniors, said farewell.
Through our tears of joy and sorrow came memories
of years past.
As sophomores we were hailed for how we lit the
"B" at homecoming. We were proud of our "state championship"
Our junior year began w ith our float, "Deep Sea Fantasy,"
winning first place in the Peach Days parade. Our
prom, "The Green Leaves of Summer," was a creation to
be proud of.
Our senior year brought another prize-winning float,
"Roman Antiqua," and a region championship football
team. Our talented "m om " and "dad," Rosamond Sleigh
and Jordan Larsen, guided us through the problems and
activities of seniors. We learned to love them as our own
parents. Then, as the graduation ended, we took one last
look at BE. We had been a good class: intelligent, w elldisciplined,
and courteous. We had set a good example
and pledged to always live so that Box Elder would be
proud of us.

“So live that when you die you won’t be afraid
to sell the fam ily parrot to the town gossip.”
FROM THE OLD TO THE
We, the seniors of Box Elder, started our sophomore year on the beloved campus of the old
high school, now known as Box Elder Junior High. How can we ever forget the way we lit the "B"
at homecoming and how everyone marveled at its splendor? We w ill always remember our remorse
when we were kicked out of the assemblies. We were proud of the football team when they took
State. The year was characterized by study and by singing and yelling in the halls and the auditorium.
We found a change, however, in our junior year, for the new high school was nearly finished.
We missed two weeks of school while the workmen worked harder than ever. Peach Days came
along and our float, "Deep Sea Fantasy," captured first place. Then at last school started. Of course we
shared our new, beautiful, grassless school w ith the workmen, who even insisted on w orking in our
classrooms w ilh us. The most fun was in attending P.E. classes in the ne w sem inary b u ild in g , band
in the library, and choir in the cafeteria. We soon grew accustomed to our surroundings, but there was
one rule we found hard to adjust to: No singing, yelling, or whistling in the halls or the auditorium. As
Spring pushed W inter from our doors, we were proud to produce the Junior Prom, "The Green Leaves
Ig jS jlf^ flf l«L; was our senior year. We helped level the ground around the school building the
ootball field, and the baseball diamond, and helped plant the grass to give B.E. a more landscaped
look. We realized that this w ould be our last year at Box Elder and we wanted it to be worthwhile
Some of us had fun by giving our teachers a bad time, but most of us decided to buckle down and
study to prepare ourselves for college and for our future lives in an adult world.
We were filled w ith mingled emotions as we walked across the stage in our caps and gowns to
receive our diplomas. There was satisfaction in the completion of our high school work, and sadness
in the knowledge that one phase of our life was giving way to another. High school friends and teachers
w ould soon become a memory, but it would be a proud and happy memory. We had every reason
to be proud and happy, for we had helped to mingle the new with the old: we were the graduating
class of 1963! Like the M ariner II on its way to Venus, w e blazed new trails for others to follow , but
like the sun and all that's true, we were able to remain loyal to BEHS and all it stands for in any building
"The gem of the Junior Class**
The Juniors have experienced a year that few of them
w ill ever forget. The first thrilling event started with the
traditional painting of the town. Many w ill always wonder
which got the most paint, the sidewalk or the Juniors.
Their Junior Prom was truly a work of art.
Individuality showed up when the Juniors voted for
oval class rings instead of conforming to the custom of
Having proved that they were worthy of the title of
Juniors, they w ill strive to live up to the respected name
of the Seniors.

"Students, guess w ho is the center o f attraction?"
The Sophomores entered Box Elder as the underdogs. But soon
they proved that they were able to accomplish all that was required
of them, although many times it took the skilled guidance
of their class parents and class officers in order to succeed.
The determination of the Sophomores to successfully fu lfill all
that was required of them has helped to gain the respect that they
have obtained. Their pep, vitality, and friendly manners have
added greatly to the school spirit.
Having lived through a year of high school, the Sophomores
have emerged with a greater knowledge of what is required of
them at Box Elder. By successfully filling the responsibilities of
Sophomores, they have prepared themselves for the responsibilities
of a Junior.

"The Home of the Bees". This is Box Elder
High School's slogan of achievement. A slogan
which recognizes in symbol and in action the
unity of purpose at Box Elder High School. It
now symbolizes a new phase called STUDENT
GOVERNMENT where unity is achieved by emphasizing
the in d iv id u a l. Each is responsible fo r
himself, for developing his abilities, for behavior,
for developing ones own personality to prove
its uniqueness and its ability to make worthy
contributions to society. Student Government
provides a new look at youth in whom w e should
find as many differences as there are individuals
and a belief that no tw o persons can be alike.
These variations in personalities provide the
opportunity for an unlim ited future o f achievem
ent here as w e ll as in space. Because o f our
differences you can be what you want to be if
you w ill pay the price.

THE CLASS OF 1963
The Class of 1963 has a history to be proud of from the time we first walked into the halls
of Box Elder High.
As sophomores, we looked up to the seniors as being wise and more experienced than we.
They seemed so big, and w e were almost afraid of them. But we grew up that year. We only had
to be kicked out of the assemblies once to know how it felt and to be quiet during assemblies.
Our class parents, Mrs. Sue Jensen and Mr. Lloyd Hust stuck by us in all we did. Our class
officers were Jay Stokes, president; Pam Rollins, vice president; and Betty Endo, secretary. The year
was full of tests and we met each one w ith determination to succeed. Our first test, the Peach Day
float, we called "Devil's Torment." We w ill never forget building our "red project," or the sore
fingers w e got when w e missed the nails. We added a really beautiful lighting of the "B" to our
first homecoming. We stood taller as we heard people exclaim that it was the best they had ever
seen it lit. A ll year w e just about popped our buttons w ith pride for the football team who led us
to state championship.
As the air became filled w ith smells, sounds, and thoughts of Christmas, we planned our
Christmas dance and assembly. We chose "Frost Fantasy" as the theme. Our assembly and dance
were well done and we were proud of the results. Ellen Gray was chosen as our Snow Queen
w ith Pam Rollins and Marsha Chlarson as attendants.
As the time for the Prom rolled around, we began to get snoopy. We'll never forget the
juniors who tried to keep us from peeking into the gym while they were decorating. Although most
of us didn't learn that the theme was "Kashmir, Land of Romance," we did discover that the decorations
were beautiful. We were thrilled w ith the school play, "Kiss and Tell," which showed a
portion of the life of Corliss Archer.
At the close of the year we looked back with satisfaction on a job well done. We had spent
most of our classtime in tin shacks, but our hearts had been captured by the spirit of Box Elder.

Our junior year was one of wonderful and treasured memories. Our class parents were Mr.
Lloyd Hust and Mrs. Arlee Laird. They worked w ith our class officers, Dennis Yamasaki, president;
Nancy Burtcher, vice president; and Pam Meals, secretary, to lead us through a fabulous year. Our
Peach Day float, "Deep Fanta-Sea," glistened in the sun and brought applause and much comment
from the people of Brigham City. It won a first place rating and gave us good cause to be proud.
Our new school building had not been completed. School had been postponed for tw o weeks.
Still, for the first part of school we attended classes with workmen painting in the same room. We
accepted this fact and made the best o f if. The only thing w e really missed were assemblies. The
only ones we had had to be held in the gym because the auditorium wasn't finished until spring.
When homecoming came, juniors could be found all over the streets of Brigham City painting
the town. We painted it with actual paint-purple and white. We used our creative abilities and
made the town look beautiful w ith the colors of Box Elder.
Our biggest task of the year was the Junior Prom. It was the first prom to be held in the
new BE gym. We had problems which resulted from inexperience in working in the new larger gym,
but everything turned out beautifully and we were proud to announce "The Green Leaves of Summer'
as the theme. The fam iliar gymnasium slowly lost its true identity as we diligently turned the basketball
court into a lovely southern plantation with all the necessary atmosphere. Hours were spent cutting
out green material to make leaves for the many trees strewn throughout the gymnasium. The
|grge stately mansion surrounded by a beautiful fountain added to the atmosphere of the southern
estate. Three chandeliers hung from the ceiling, adding a note of dignity and authenticity to the entire
We w ill never forget the school play, "Blythe Spirit," or the ghost which appeared in it.
O ur basketball team w ent into the state basketball tournam ent and emerged as consolation
champions w ith a huge trophy to add to our collection. We also received the Region I sportsmanship
trophy. Once again our hearts surged with pride f )r Box Elder.

"We painted the town"
As our senior year began we realized that we were nearing the end of our school years and
that everything we did we would be doing for the last time. We vowed that we would get the most
out of the year and work hard, so that we might look back on our year and be proud of our accomplishments.
We have done this and we have good reason to be proud. The faculty w ill agree that our
class has been one of the best classes ever to graduate from Box Elder. The scholastic abilities of the
students was w ell above average. We had learned to get along w ith the faculty and our fellow
classmates. As seniors we were leaders of the school and set examples for the juniors and sophomores.
Our class parents, Jordan Larsen and Rosamond Sleigh, advised us well and were always there
when w e needed them. O ur class officers, Lynn Ritchie, president; Kenny Davis, vice president; and
Kathleen Owen, secretary, and our class parents helped us produce the senior play, "A ll My Sons,"
which w ill long be remembered by everyone who saw it.
The Class o f LXIII produced another outstanding Peach Day float when "Roma A ntiqua"
em egred from the shop to w in th ird place in the Peach Day parade. The floa t illustrated Roman gal
lentry w ith a chariot led by tw o brilliant horses made of paper-mache.
The boys in athletics thrilled us and worried us, too. We represented our region in the state
football tournament. We entered the state basketball tournament as third place holders in the region.
Free dancing lessons were given during the early spring for several weeks on Monday nights.
Many of us took advantage of them and learned some new dance steps.
The school play, "The Late Christopher Bean," was another great achievement of our school.
The drama and emotion shown in the play proved the ability of our director and cast in doing a good
job in dramatics.
The last few weeks o f school were filled w ith parties and practices. And then, as w e walked
across the platform to receive our diplomas at graduation, we looked back over our wonderful years
at B.E. and tears began to fa ll. Some tears w e re o f sadness because w e w o u ld never again return to
Box Elder, but some were tears of joy that we had made it and were now on our own to face an
adult w orld and show it what we had learned.
