1963 Boomerang







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.

"Studentbody Officers"



"Color Guards"




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

original creation.


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.

'Much practice went into the half-time performance"

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

a tie.

"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

Swingette band.

Sophomore royalty reigned over the Christmas Dance.

Sadie Hawkins' Day began with the donning

of outlandish hillb illy costumes. The

girls' choice dance turned out to be a real

Hill-Bee-Billy dance. All boys wore vegetable

corsages concocted by their lucky captors.

The main event of the evening was the exchange

"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 Junior class, their year was now complete,

their Junior Prom was also complete. The decorations

were some of the most beautiful ever

seen. The spirit of Rome was present everywhere.

The lilting strains of the Weber College

band floated dreamily over the maize of dancers

as they glided gracefully about the floor.

The sight was awe-inspiring as the girls waltzed

about in their elegant dresses. The dream of

every Junior had come true.

A very special dance.

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.

they have th rille d B.E. fans w ith the ir

The members have felt a feeling of

have all been fun, especially the scavenger

the city, and the Christmas party, when

Mrs. Messervy brought tears to their eyes

by reading a story. They w ill never forget

were officially welcomed into the club September

"O ur Harvest Ball Dance."


The Future Farmers of America jointly w ith the Future

Homemakers o f Am erica sponsored a beautiful and successful

Harvest Ball, "Harvest Times Around the W orld." They

appreciated the help of their sponsors, Mr. Dee Hortin and

Mr. Norwood Hyer, and the FHA sponsors, Mrs. Mary Ann

Page and Mrs. Donna Hurst.

The members of the FFA put in many hours learning

agriculture, but their efforts are paid off when they come

home with the blue ribbons.

All in all, whether it was sponsoring a Harvest Ball,

winning blue ribbons, or just having fun, the Future Farmers

of America did it and did it w ell.

Even though they lacked

height this year, Box Elder's

basketball team played a

great season, showing ball

handling and teamwork,

that more than made up for

the lack of height. The Bees

had some tought breaks but

still managed to qualify for

the state tournament. Both

Coach Grant Moser and the

team deserve great credit

for the fine efforts and

team work that went into a

successful year.

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.

Coach Dunn's Tankers had a great year this

year, placing fifth in the state and breaking three

school records in the process. W ith an even 6-6

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.

"There is one in every class."

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"

football team.

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.”




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

of Summer."

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

or circumstances.

"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

rectangular rings.

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 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.

ja y

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.

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.
