Ada, Minnesota DEDICATICDN FORWARD Well, dear friends, we. as seniors, have come to the close of our high school days. Do I hear a few cheers? Surely no one could be happy at the thought of Finishing school! fOr could they?J Don't you remember how glad you were when you practically broke a leg racing up the stairs only to have the door slammed in your face and how you beamed with joy when someone would spring a test on you? I'm sure you all remember the night you wanted to see a movie in the worst way, but you had to study for three tests. You just went into Hts of laughter. fMaybe it was just plain fitsj But seriously, we've had a good time and just to prove it, we present our '42 Viking. WALTER DRENGSON We seniors hope that by dedicating our annual to Walt we are giving a little of the honor due him. Each year he has brought the attention of many to our school by the outstanding organiza- tions which he has pro- duced. fsxclmlmstratlon A C Pederson Supelmtendent Norman M Wxdsten Prmclpal B A Luther College Latm B E Bem1d31 State T C BOARD OF EDUCATION Semor H S Sclence Mathematics Flrst Row Mlke Roesch Clerk O N Boddmg Treas urer Carl Volkerdmg Sec ond Row W M Aschbach Leonard Ol on Dr A Nel son Presldent 6 I l I . ., . . . . . . . , 1 - - r ' v - ' c ' - ., , . . , . o Top Row Cleft to ughtj Walter Drengson Ada Mlnnesota B Mus Concordla Col lege Mus1c R B Johnson LaCrosse WISCONSIN B A Carleton College Bookkeepmg Hlstory X Soc1alSc1ence Publlcatlons Guy W Long Mxlnor N Dak B S Umverslty of North Dakota Ind Arts Genexal SCIENCE 7th and Sth Blanche Olsen Ada Mmnesota UH1VeFSlty of Mlnnesota Llbrarlan and Secretary A C Pederson Superlntendent Ada MlnD6S0t3 B A Luther College Latln Second Row Florence M Renner Pel1can Raplds Mmnesota B E Moorhead State T C Art Econonnc Geography Engllsh XI Hlstory XI Marle A Rlste Hendrum Mlnne sota B E Moolhead State T C Jumoz H S MHthCm1tlCS Myrene E Ronshaugen Roslyn S Dak B A Augustana College Gen Sclence Gen Busmess Physlcal Education Dramatlcs Damel H Ruoff Ada Mmnesota B S Unlverslty of Mmnesota Physlcal Education Blology Couch Athletlcs Glenna Sad Valley Clty N Dak B A Umverslty of N Dak Jumor H S Enghsh Socl'1lStud1es Declamatlon Dr'1mat1cs 1 Thlrd Row Marjorle Strand Fargo N Dak B E Moorhead State T C 7th Geogra phy General SCIGHCO Art Engllsh Hlstory Ethel Symons Ada Mmnesota B A Fargo College UnlV8fS1ty of North Dakota Sen1or H S Engl1Sh Joye Whltten Mlnneapolls Mmnesota B S Umversxty of M1nDQSOt8 Art Home Economlcs Norman M Wldsten Prlncxpal Ada Mlnnesota B E Bemxdjx State T C Senlor H S Sclence Mathematlc Evelyn W1ll1HmS Wadena Mmnesotx B S Unlverslty of Mlnnesota Shorthand Typlng Faculty 2f1lOl'S Top row Qleft to Flghtl Vlola Bloom Archle Chrls t1anson Loren Chr1st1anson Neola Dlxon Second row Murlel Eckhoff Myron Eldsmoe Jesse Elhngworth Daphme F1scher Thlrd row Arllne G1Ul6T Esther GllSOUl Robert Gnadt Alm1ra Grothe Fourth row Lowell Haaland Ahce Harms Jams Larson Anthony Merck f l . , ' Q s f . , , , .

We were all kept one noon be- cause one member of the class whistled. We all gave out with our best whistles to help the teacher tell which one of us had committed the crime, but it remained unsolved. We were excited taking our new places in the senior assembly as sophomores. The new member in our sophomore class was Jesse. We built the bonfire that year and had a hard time but with Mr. Johnson's assistance and after scouring the country side and vicinity of Ada, we produced the particular edifice, and our bonfire proved to be one of the biggest and best ever. For baccalaureate service our class decorated the auditorium. Our annual class picnic was held at Twin Lakes. It was rather cold for swimming so we decided to have a wading party, but might just as well have gone swimming, for after engaging in a water fight we came out soaking wet anyhow. As juniors we won first prize for our float in the Homecoming parade. We showed our dramatic ability in our junior class play, "Mountain Mumps", which was a great suc- cess. A trophy of which we were very proud was won by our boys in the Inter-Class Bas- ketball Tournament. Anthony joined our class that year. We must not forget to mention that ours was the first class in recent years to have a prom following the Junior-Senior Banquet. Our decorations for commencement were con- sidered to have been very beautiful. We used great quantities of ferns, lilacs, plum and ap- ple blossoms. It was truly a bower of beauty. As thirty-one high and mighty seniors we are now drawing to the close of our story. Our senior year has truly been a memorable one. Our Homecoming Queen was Viola, and our float again won a prize for its beauty. In the spring we were entertained by the juniors at a banquet. In the past years our class has not had to take a "Back seat" in any of the follow- ing activities: band, choir, football, basketball, publications and dramatics. Our Annual has been the biggest undertaking in our senior year, and we are proud of it. 1. Bob, our class president, has a later model now. 2. Those knee pants, Dutch! 3.

Juniors Plan Banquet and Prom . . . This year our class of 46 members has been headed by our president, Betty Remarkg vice president, Chester Dekkog secretary, Fay Christianson, treasurer, Jerome Vilmo and advisor, Miss Renner. In November when homecoming took place. our float brought us a first prize of three dol- lars for its originality. After many wearisome, yet interesting practices came the exciting date, October 17. Our class play, "Miss America", was present- ed before a large audience for the matinee and a full auditorium for the evening performance. The cast of 12 members was directed by Miss Renner and Miss Ronshaugen, During practices the cast was entertained by Ruth Austinson, Fay Christianson and Mavis Sorenson at Fay's home, Betty Remark at her home and by Miss Renner and Miss Ronshaugen at the school house. Other mem- bers of the cast brought apples and candy. Of the 33 contestants in the spelling contest in February, 16 were juniors. Donald Nustad was awarded second prize of a silver medal and Marette Williamson the third prize of a bronze medal. Our biggest task of the year was the ban- quet and prom at which we entertained the seniors on May 18. We carried out a "Keep 'Em Flying" theme. Our class is well represented in the extra activities as basketball. football. journalism and music. First prizes in both the essay contests held this year were taken by juniors. Ardis Horn received first prize on her essay "Education For A Strong America." Betty Remarks essay "Characteristics of a Good American" rated First and Fay Christianson's second. Decorations and ushers for commencement exercises were taken care of by our class. Front Row: Cleft to rightj Elaine Eckhoff. Elizabeth Dittmer. John Jamison.

Bu Id Bonfire for I-lomeoommg We, the class of 44. have for the past nine months been under the leadership of our pres- ident. Malcolm Ripleyg vice president, Betty Lou Olsong secretary, Elaine Hovland and treasurer, Shirley Thompson. Our class ad- visor was Mr. Johnson until January when his vacancy was filled by Miss Mary Jean Bowe. Our curriculum consists of the required sub- jects of English, physical education and world history and the selective group of biology, geometry, home economics and industrial arts. Many of our class members also take part in the extra activities. Eighteen students take part in the music activities, four in football and basketball, nine are on the paper staff and two of our girls have been cheerleaders for thc past two years. In order to have a good homecoming it takes a good bon-fire and we sophomores had an excellent one this year. Although we had the misfortune of our float being destroyed before the parade, we feel it would have taken a prize for it was a huge military tank with a V for Victory and Vikings. To help our country, we began buying De- fense stamps as a class project. The rest of the high school followed our policy later in the year. Our class party was held on February sec- ond. It was a farewell party for Mr. R. B. John- son who was our teacher and class advisor. He resigned to accept a position in a defense in- dustry. As is customary. the six highest ranking girls and six highest ranking boys acted as waitresses and waiters for the junior-senior banquet. We also had the privilege of decorat- ing the gymnasium for the senior s baccalaure- ate services.

During the course of the year the various organizations of the music department have played a large part in the social activities of the community. On February 3 the choir sang at the Winter Shows Pageant at Crookston. They also appeared on a Meet Your Neighbor program at Perley and at several Legion and Farm Bureau meetings. The most outstanding organization of the music department this year was the pep band. They appeared at most of the sub-district bas- ketball games and at both the sub-district and district tournaments. During the first week in August they went on a trip to Yellowstone Park. a tour they'll always remember. They. too, have performed at many community func- tions, including a Farm Bureau meeting at Hendrum and the Meet Your Neighbor pro- gram at Perley. Band Brevities proved to be the highlight of the year for all musical groups. The band opened the performance and were followed by a miniature minstrel completely costumed. A picture album constituted the third part of the program including both modern pictures and pictures from the gay nineties. A choir of 80 voices concluded the performance. '20 S y.

And finally the paper is out on the desks and in the mail submitted for reading and criticism. Now that you know what we do perhaps you are wondering what we do it with.

This was done through a senior snap- shot party and by student's donations. Most of the pictures, however, had to be taken by our photography editors to fill the extra snapshot pages that are in the annual this year. At the Northern Interscholastic Press as-Q sociation held in Grand Forks last year, the Viking rated "A" and was the best printed annual in its division. It also was the best Min- nesota annual entered. Viola Bloom, Leona Writer represented the Viking at the conven- tion. This is the sixth Viking published and is the fourth to be printed. The other two were mime- ographed and planographed. As you probably have noticed, this annual has been improved as much as our limited resources allowed. The new, streamlined cover is different from any- thing used previously and the editor has tried her best to make the make-up of the book varied and interesting.

So we didn't have our funny paper characters either. Well, to start off with, several of us seniors were excused from school to prepare the first prize float, the Statue of Liberty, the part taken by Leona Writer, and boy what a float! 'We used Sprug Remark's t'Chevy,' and what a car. The junior float had to push it three- fourths of the way in the parade. Well, the parade was supposed to start at one- thirty, so by two it finally got underway. As usual the band strutted out in front, then came the noisy fire trucksg you might say they took the place of the usual trumpets or bugles that hail the coming of someone of royalty, because following them was the Queen's float. The Queen was perched on top of Mr. W'idsten's car and the four attendants were riding on the fenders and such. Behind the Queen came the famous senior float. the Statue of Liberty. 1, Queens float. 2. Senior float. 3. Junior float. 4. Sophomore float. Following this was the juniors' float, I don't remember what it was, but it was given the prize for the most original float there. The seniors want to thank the juniors for pushing us in the parade, of course if we had had a car it wouldn't have been necessary. Well, after the juniors was supposed to be the sophs, but they didn't get very far cause as the huge white tank turned the corner, BANG! Y I ! Y it smashed into another car. It sure wreck- ed the thing. You know if all the tanks are built like that we sure won't stand a chance against Germany, but I think it was the people who made this one, of course it might be that they hit a better car. On second thought I know it was. Parading behind was the freshies, and the seventh and eighth grade floats, I didn't see them, but I heard they had Hoats in the parade. And of course, as usual, along behind the floats came cars and all the kids. Well we paraded down the streets of our big town and then the bunch kinda split, some to the fairgrounds, and some to the school house. I went out to the fairgrounds and sat around until the game started and what a game! Nothing much happened in the first quarter, and we thought sure we would shunk 'em, but during the second period something happened, cause gol-darn those Indians, if they didn't score two touchdowns. Personally I think the girls were the inspiration, cause from what I hear Mahnomen girls aren't as good-looking as us Ada girls, course I wouldnlt know. Well, during the half came the crowning of the Queen, I couldnlt see much of that because of all the kids running around there, but Viola was crowned, not the way she should be, but that's O.K., we took care of that later. The Queen marched out onto the field, with the two Betty's holding her train, and the other two attendants carrying the crown-it was so heavy with jewels, the ten cent kind, that it took two to carry it. Betty Remark set the crown on the Queen's head, then the Queen gave out the float prizes and things and all marched back. I don't know how Viola carried the crown on her head when it took two to carry it before, but she did it, I guess maybe she's stronger than we gave her credit for. .29. By the time the third period rolled around I had yelled myself hoarse and to top it off it looked as if the Indians were out to beat us, but we fooled them by taking the ball away at their one yard line, course they fumbled the ball, but anyway we got it, and then Hadler ran 78 yards for a touchdown. his second of the season, and then the Indians got mad and they tried to make passes, but all the wind from their bragging kinda helped us to inter- cept their passes. At the end of the game we were clear down on our twenty yard line again, and we beat the Indians 38 to 18, of course everyone knew we would. Well I guess that's enough about the famous Ada High School Homecoming for now. Be seein' you soon I hope. Love, Bette 1. Our Homecoming Queen. 2.

On September 12th the Vikings opened their 41 season with a bandhdefeating their hosts Hendrum by a score of 51 to 0. An odd incident about this game was that although Ada scored 51 points they made only one first down with Hendrum also making one. This can be explained because whenever they got the ball they either scored, fumbled or returned punts for scores. In the second quarter a pass play, Ness to Vilrno, clicked for a touchdown. This victory greatly encouraged the team and as a result they edged out Borup 24 to 12 the following week in the First home game at the fairgrounds.

But not for long for they immediately buckled down and held giving up only one touchdown the rest of the game. From then on the game consisted of smashing advances by both teams with Ada batting down the op- ponent s last desperate attempts to score. Un- der their new coach Fertile cut loose with a razzledazzle style of play that caused the Vikes plenty of trouble. This win placed us with a first place tie with Beltrami in the Conference standings. On our homecoming we played Mahnomen. Although outweighed, the boys were not out- fought. Using pile-driving tactics and showing plenty of drive for a light team they continual- ly broke through the opponent's line for long '30 Top Row: Cleft to rightj Thomas Farag- her, center: E u g e n e Hadler, halfbackg Del- ford Johnson, fullbackg Donald Ness, fullback.

Loren Christianson opened the scoring by picking up a lateral and out-racing his pursuers to tally six points. The score was pretty close at the half, 19 to 12. with the In- dians dominating the play the second period. But the team came to life in the second halfg scored three more touchdowns, and were camped down inside the twenty yard line at the final gun. Final score: Ada 38. Mahnomen 18. Next on the list was the unbeaten Waubun team and the Bombers swamped the Vikings 46 to 0. After ten penalties in the first quarter which amounted to the total of Waubun's 30- yard line, a series of penalties followed which Vikes showing their stuff in the Borup game. QQ put the Vikings deep in their own territory for the remainder of the game. It actually turned out to be more of a referee's exhibition than a football game. This game blasted all the team's title hopes as they were now down in second place. Somewhat disheartened from the Waubun game the Vikings bowed to a hard-charging Twin Valley team 24 to 0. They were con- tinually stopped by the Tiger's line. When their running game failed to click, the boys let loose an aerial blitz but their scoring chances were blasted by interceptions. This year's trophy was presented to Waubun the only 100W team in the League. Action in the game with Twin Valley. Basketball Team Has Hot Season Prospects for the 1941-42 basketball season looked very promising with nine lettermen re- turning. We had a total of 19 wins and four defeats out of our 23 games, which included such teams as East Grand Forks, Crookston, Bagley and Detroit Lakes. The Vikings scored 634 points to their opponent's 428 points. This made an offensive record of 30.2 points to a defensive record of 20.4 points per game. For the first time in the history of the new sub-district, Ada closed the season with 100W and then came through with the sub-district championship and second place in the district. In the first game of the sub-district tourna- ment, Vikes met strong opposition in the Fer- tile team, but won 31-17. In the second game Ada took Mahnomen 44-28 and won from Wau- bon 34-27 in the championship game the fol- lowing night. Waubon beat Borup in the semi- finals which put them into the championship with Ada. Borup won from Mahnomen for third place. Friday, the thirteenth, proved a jinx to the Vikes for they played Bagley for the District championship and lost by one basket 20-18. Bagley's Flyers outplayed the Viking team in this game and went to the Regional at Fosston March 19-20. They edged out East Grand Forks 30-28 in the title match for the Region 8 Crown after upsetting the favorite Bemidji the previous night. Ada won the Halstad Invitational Tourna- ment held January 1-2 when they defeated Halstad 33-9 in the first round and Hillsboro for the championship the last night 33-27. The Vikings have won two championships in the three years which the tournament has been played. The fourth annual Inter-class Tournament was won by the seniors for the second succes- sive year when they defeated the junior high 36-17 the first evening and the following night the juniors for the class championship. The sophomores downed the junior high 34-16 in the consolation game for third place. 1. Another basket for us. 2. Take it away from 'em. 3. Who's got the ball? 4. We did it again. 5.
