W-. ca., t ,- ' 1 THE 1946 VIKING 'A' i' i ADA HIGH SCHOOL Ada, Minnesota ofzewotb 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. I IAGICJICF love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13. 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 U. S. Army Air Corps He graduated from the Ada High School in 1938. He joined the National Guard in Moor- head and left here with that unit on February 10. 1941. He completed fifty missions in Italy and North Africa. After a trip home, he volunteered for service in Europe and was shot down some- where in Germany on September 23. 1944.

CLASS HISTORY 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 14 Merck, and Rhoda Olson. Was Barb ever mad when Miss Strand gave her a zero in her history test for talking. 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!

Our class is very well represented in all extra-curricular activities. We have one letterman. Ronald Baker. in football already. We also had members participating in football. basketball. band. choir. declamation. and track. Peppy .lean Anthony was elected as a cheerleader for the year. and Ramona l-ien. Aud- rey Hetland, and Joyce Sjordal were on the Viking I.ot1 staff. lldward Merck and Beverly Roesch were on the annual staff. The curriculum of the Freshman class this year consisted of general business or home eco- nomics. algebra, English. general science. physical education. and health. We elected the following to serve as class officers: Audrey Hetland, president: Ben Fischer, vice-president: Joyce Sliordal. secretary: and Bill l,arson, treasurer. Miss Riste was our class advisor. XVe had two grand parties during the year. Both were full of fun and eats? Our homecoming float consisted of a jeep. decorated in orange. black, and white. Although we have had very much fun as Freshmen. we are looking forward to our Sopho- more year. Remlmq left to right: l" rott' 4 .lerome Pinske.

Duane Foster. However, the Viking team was greatly handi- capped by the lack of practice due to potato vacation. 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 -44: Ada-8. 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- ley-20: Ada-12. This game was the Viking Homecoming, and at the half time Capt. Russell Onstad crowned Yvonne Peterson queen of the l945 football season. 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 20 4 5 BALL 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: Borup-6: Ada-22. 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: Ada-20. 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.

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. 22 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 on February 27, 28, and March l, Ada de- feated Gary the first afternoon, 49-22. On the second day they defeated Mahnomen, 34-25.

At the Regional at Thief River Falls the Vikings played Bemidji. the regional favor- ites, and lost the game, 44-36. The last event of the basketball season was the interclass tournament on March 25-26. This revealed some very good material for future basketball teams.

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.

"VJho's writing humor?" "Remember the deadlines" were just a few of the remarks that were often heard coming from the typing room. It didn't take much effort to guess that the paper staHf was hard at work trying to get the paper out by Friday. 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. Rernling from It-'fl lo right: Ifirsl rotu-Ada Teters, Iilayne Wagner. Helen Ruebke.

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 3 P V Y V arrangements of "Oklahoma," "My Moonlight Madonna." and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes."

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.
