CENTRAL HS "ROYALTY"
Miss Central is elected
each fall as the Football Queen. She continues her "reign"
through the production of the annual all-school talent show "The
DAZE". Seniors nominate 3 candidates of the senior class to
be voted on by the student body for the honor of King DAZE; the
identity of the winner is kept secret until the opening night of
The first High School
DAZE was presented in 1927. Prior to that first production, there
were five football queens. Speech teacher Miss Alphild Larson directed
the student shows from 1929-1954; Mrs. Iona Ballew Freeman, 1955-1964.
Albert Martin directed the staging of the shows from 1929 - 1970.
As a student, he helped stage the first two shows. Many nationally
known artists began their careers on the Central stage and in the
DAZE: Ralph Blane (Hunsecker), Paul Harvey (Aurandt), Tony Randall
(Leonard Rosenberg), Susan Watson, Linda Roark-Strummer, Jim Hartz.
