THE 1946 VIKING
'A' i' i
ADA HIGH SCHOOL
School days, good ol' school days! What memories those
words bring back as we think of the days gone by. Some of
the Seniors will remember the days spent in physics and those
beloved social science tests. The Juniors will think of planning
for the prom, and the Sophomores of the work spent in getting
the bonfire ready. The Freshmen won't forget the task of
cleaning up after the school parties.
We hope that these pages will bring back to your memory
some of the incidents that happened to you and your pals.
AO 3fc ANTHONY MERCK
U. S. Navy Air Corps
Ile graduated from the Ada High School in
1942. He entered service on July 10 of the same
year, and was sent to the Great Lakes Naval Train-
ing Station, where he received his training. He
died in Fernandina, Florida, in an airplane crash
on July 2, 1943.
IAGICJICF love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends." John
These words express our appreciation and gratitude as we dedicate this annual to Selmer
Garness. Clarence Johnson, Anthony Merck, and David Scherf, graduates of Ada High School
who gave their lives in World War II for the country they loved so well.
These boys were young and loved life. but more than this, they loved their country. free-
dom, and God. For these reasons they worked, fought. and died for their fellow Americans.
PFC. SELMER A. GARNESS
U. S. Army
A graduate of the class of '37, he entered service
on April 21. 1941. He was a member of the
medical corps, receiving his training at Camp Clai-
borne. La., after which he was sent to the South
Pacific, where he was shot November 22, 1942,
while aiding the wounded.
2 The 1946 Viking
PFC. DAVID D. SCHERF
U. S. Marines
He graduated in 1941. On November 10
1942. he joined the Marines: and after his train
ing was completed. he was sent to the South Pa
cific. He died on Peleliu Island, Palau Islands,
September 18, 1944.
We can not repay them for their sacrifices, but we can show our respect to them by living a
true American life, striving to do our best in all we do: and by upholding. in peace, as they did
in war, the torch passed on to us.
God grant that they shall "not have died in vain" but that their sacrifices have helped to
bring about a peace that will last, so that we and future generations may live in security and
freedom in a world where all men are friends and comrades.
CAPT. C1 Avnrvfits O. JoHNsoN

Bright and early one morning the beginning of the
Senior Class of '46 trudged to school. There were
seventeen: Arne Aasland, Lorraine Carman, Jane
Dullum. Bill Fischer, Arne Ciarness, llene Gerjets,
Ronald Grothe, ThelMona Healey, Barbara Herringer.
Naomi Hovland, Florella Johnson, Raima Kloety,
Leslie Ness, Yvonne Peterson, Duane Shelland, Har-
riet Sprung, and Ada Mae Teters. Remember the old
phonograph and how we tried so hard to keep in step
as we marched behind Miss Youmanns?
ThelMona and l.eslie left us in the second grade.
"Tee Hee" came back in the third grade. Muriel Ness.
Russ Onstad and James Schultz became members of
our class in the third grade. Carman and Vonnie won
first and second awards in declamation. Miss Bell,
although not our teacher, bestowed her affections upon
all of us.
In the fourth grade the girls joined "Girl Scouts."
What a time they had that first year at camp! lla
Rasmussen was our new class member that year.
An eventful year, that fifth grade! We tried very
hard to get one hundred in our spelling test. Reason:
We got to slide down the fire escape from the top!
That was the year Garney liew Carman's kite with
their string and Fischer's all tied together. They
won and split the profits-fifteen cents. Our new
member was Gloria Moon, who came from Thief
River Falls. She soon learned her way around. We
began spattering with ink. Of course. an ink bottle
or two were spilled.
"Rumpelstilskin" was the operetta put on by the
grades when we were in the sixth year. Florella was
the queen. It was all very exciting. Leslie came back
and l.oIa Mae Horn, one of our brainy members.
joined our grade. Bill Fischer got his glasses that
year. And we couldn't forget that wonderful picnic
out at l-arson's and the fun we had swimming.
Were we thrilled when we finally got to the seventh
grade! So many different teachersl Remember R. B.
Johnson, of whom we were so deathly afraid? We
now had three more members, George Gilbertson. Mike
Merck, and Rhoda Olson. Was Barb ever mad when
Miss Strand gave her a zero in her history test for
We will never be able to forget those memorable
days we spent in the eighth grade. especially those
spent in the English room with Miss Sad, our class
advisor. Donna Fynskov and Lois Miller, two new
studious U3 students, added their two cents, too.
Ten more joined us in the ninth grade, Chester
Bartz, Duane Foster, Raymond Jacobson, Royal Mae
Johnson. Alice Krogstad, Eunice Riste, Helen Ruebke.
Jerry Scott, Velarie Skalsky, and Marvin Williamson.
Some girls got together and decided it was about time
the boys knew how to dance, so they gave some parties
to teach them.
Finally we took our place in the Senior Assembly.
Our desks were really something. Everyone swiped
each other's drawers and passed them all around-
what a mess! We had a hayride that year on a
Saturday night and drove 'way to Hadler and back
and all over town. Remember Miss Roith's and Miss
Saari's shoes? Our carnival was that year, too. For
the second year we won first on our inter-class tourna-
ment decorations. Elaine Wagner and Clarice Wer-
mager were additions to our class.
lt was really fun putting on our Junior Class
Play. "Wind in the South." "Mat" directed it. and
at dress rehearsal he gave us a party. The money we
made on the play helped us to put on our Prom. which
had a Dutch theme, with loads of tulips and a picket
fence. Connie Burrill made her appearance in the
Class of '46 that year.
At last, we were SENIORS!! Jimmy, who had
left after our Sophomore year, returned from out
West. making a class of forty-one. Yvonne Peterson
was chosen home-coming queen. Our class presented
the play, "What a Life." directed by Mrs. Hetland.
Our graduation pictures finally arrived. and everyone
was madly exchanging them and then hurriedly send-
ing for more. We finally got our annuals out and
filled them with scribblings. And last. but not least.
we got our diplomas? Good-bye. Ada High!

The opening of football season saw the re-
turn of seven lettermen, Ron Johnson, Noel
Haaland, Russ Onstad, Capt., George Gilbert-
son, Mike Merck, Les Ness. Duane Foster.
However, the Viking team was greatly handi-
capped by the lack of practice due to potato
The Viking season opened the 8th of Oc-
tober with their strong rival, Mahnomen.
The Vikings had not practiced for three
weeks, and the strong Indian team proved to
be too much for them. Score: Mahnomen
After another short vacation the Vikings
tangled with the Tigers. The Vikings showed
much improvement, but still could not come
out on top. The Hnal score was Twin Val-
This game was the Viking Homecoming,
and at the half time Capt. Russell Onstad
crowned Yvonne Peterson queen of the l945
On October 25, the Viking squad traveled
to Fertile. The first quarter found the Vikes
at the small end of the 6-O score. Fertile
scored again in the second quarter, leaving the
half time score 14-0. The third quarter
saw the Vikes march down the field to the
two-yard line only to lose the ball, which
resulted in another touchdown for Fertile. In
the fourth period there was a nice pass from
Garness to D. Ness for the only Ada touch-
down. Final score: Fertile-20: Ada--8.
October 30 found the Vikings in Borup,
Borup had a nice team and forced the Vikes
to work for everything they got. Every-
thing seemed to work in this game, and the
Viking defense was in its prime. Final score:
November 2 brought snow and cold wea-
ther, and another football game with Hend-
rum, but the people that braved the cold were
rewarded with a very good game. The Vi-
kings came through to wind up the '45 season
with another victory. Score: Hendrum-6:
This game ended the careers of seven sen-
iors: Capt. "Russ" Onstad, Duane Foster,
Arne Garness. "Mike" Merck, "Les" Ness.
George Gilbertson, Duane Shelland.
Next year will see only five lettermen back.
They are Noel I-Iaaland. "Ron" Johnson,
"Ron" Baker, "Seny" Larson, and Dwain
Ness. There are other fellows that did not
make a letter, but promise to be valuable
men, so the '46 season should be a good one.

The Ada Vikings gOt off to a good start
this year with their fine coach, Dan Ruoff.
and the return of several lettermen: Arne
Garness, Mike Merck, Leslie Ness, George
Gilbertson, Dwain Ness, Noel Haaland, and
Ronald Johnson. James Schultz returned
from the west coast to join the team. Ada
had a very prosperous season, winning l3
games out of the 18 played, and a 1,000 pct.
standing in the subdistrict.
They won the Halstad invitational tour-
nament on December 28-29, defeating Hal-
stad, 47-18, and Hendrum, 40-34, and Win-
ning a line trophy.
At the subdistrict tournament at Fertile

feated Gary the first afternoon, 49-22. On

future basketball teams. The Seniors won
the championship title and the Junior High
received the award for their decorations.

l.Ol.A MAI: HORN
On the Hrst floor of Ada High School in a little room off the Biology room you could
usually find Connie, Lowie, Lola Mae, and Mrs. Johnson slaying over the '46 annual. Else-
where in the building, if you saw a flash, you would know that it was Mike and Bob tripping
over the electric light cords, getting a snap of some school activity. These people have worked
hard with our Annual, and they really had a hard time getting everyone 'Alined up" for the
class pictures and the informal snapshots.
The members of the annual staff did some scampering around town to sell tickets for
the annual movie, "Music for Millions," which was presented on January 17, 1946.
All in all, I imagine everyone gave a sigh of relief when the '46 Annual was Hnally
completed and distributed.

take much effort to guess that the paper staHf was hard at work trying to get the paper out by
Raima Kloety headed the staff the first half of the year. and Dorothy Tomhave took
over during the second semester. Jacquelin Scherf was chosen to be assistant editor. Mrs.
Austin was always present with suggestions and help.
Many new features were added this year. Among them was a page of fashions where all
the latest styles and fashions were exhibited by original drawings by the art editors. This
added greatly to the paper. '
The staff was composed of members from both the Junior and Senior assemblies. They
numbered forty-seven. which was one of the largest staffs the Log has ever had. These stu-
dents acted as typists. reporters, feature writers. mimeographers, distributors. and artists.

Three cheers for the Ada High School Bandf It continues to be the outstanding music
organization of the school. l.ast year the band numbered forty-one members. This year,
even though eight members were lost through graduation, the membership has increased to
forty-five. This year we again have eight senior members who will graduate. However. we
have seven sixth-graders in the grade band who will enter junior high next year. So you
can see how our number is growing. Next year we look forward to a band of hfty members.
The Band Brevities of l946 was well attended and the large audience was thoroughly
pleased with the program. The stage was so arranged that each row was on a different ele-
vation. The girls were dressed in formals and the boys in white trousers and suit coats. Th:
effect was really lovely to behold. Besides several numbers by the band. there were four vaude-
ville skits. The Toreador Act was the favorite of the kiddies.
"Coronation," a musical episode by Joseph Skornicka, was the most highly acclaimed num-
ber presented by the band. This number has been selected as one of the contest numbers to be
played in the State Music Contest this year.
Other outstandinf and favorite numbers la 'ed b the band this 'ear are concert

The Ada High School Choir of forty-two voices sang for the Christmas program and
furnished numbers on various occasions in the spring of the year. The choir. as well as
the band, will take part in the State Music Contest this year. The contest number for the
choir is the popular Negro spiritual by Nathaniel Dell. "Listen to the Lamb."
A mixed ensemble from the choir sang three numbers on the Band Brevities' program.
These were A'Serenade." by Romberg: "Lullaby," by Brahms, and MOI' Man River," by
Jerome Kern. The latter proved to be one of the outstanding numbers of the year. Solo
parts were sung by Marvin Williamson and Donald Larson.
Other popular numbers of the year were 'Come to the Fair" and Schubert's A'Serenade."
The year's work consisted of patriotic music for Armistice Day and the Memorial Day
program. sacred numbers for Commencement and Baccalaureate, and secular numbers for
school programs and other occasions.
It is hoped that in the not too far distant future choir gowns can be purchased so
that the choir. as well as the band. can be uniformly dressed for contest occasions.
