You very seldom missed any of the boys' after school basketball practices. You even made the long trips to the tournament and encouraged the boys before the games. At our interclass tournaments you often acted as coach to one of the class teams.

' ooiball 1949 The Viking Football Coach. Donald Schlattrnan. started the season by building a team from a squad of boys with very little experience in football. He had only five returning lettermen from last year. They were Clinton and Sanford Sorenson, Jerome Rage. joe Books, and Larry Skalsky. As Ada switcvhed from six to eleven man football, all the boys were inexperienced and had to learn new tactics. Due to this the season wasn't very successful in the line ,of winning games. but a lot of good experience was picked up by the boys. which means better teams in the future, as most of the gridders were underclassmen. The Viking Team started the season bygoing to Mahnomen to battle to a twenty- seven to nothing score in favor of Mafhnomen. The next week they held Waubun to a seven to nothing. When they met their traditional rivals, Fertile. one of the best teams in the district. they lost by fifty-seven to nothing, although they did put up a good fight. The last game of the season was the homecoming game with Waubun. The Vikings lost nineteen to six. Dan Ruoff had charge of the second string and Stanley Pederson had charge of the B team.

Betty Habedank, Donna Mae Larsen. Geraldine Ness. Coach Dan Ruoff built this year's team from nearly all new and last year's D team boys. The only returning lettermen from last year's District Champion Team were joe Books, Walter Books, and Morris Sprung. They started the season by playing a grand game against Halstad, losing by three points. The next close game we had was with Hendrum with two overtimes, with Hendrum beating us 58 to 56. There were three games between the Hendrum game and the one Ada fans had waited for since the start of the season, the Fertile game. The Ada players weren't doing so well that night, and as a re- sult were defeated 42 to ZZ.. However, they defeated Climax soon after by a score of 45 to 28. Then the players came up against an extremely tough team. Fosston. They play- ed good ball, but came out on the loose end, the score being 51 to 37. The next game drew a crowd which packed every available seat and all standing room too. Fertile was out to beat Ada again, but Ada didn't agree, so after a very exciting game plus an overtime, Ada won by one point, 34 to 35. They also played two very good games against Mahnomen and Wauban and defeated them both. The B Team show very promising signs for a very strong team for next year's A Team. The Cheerleaders are not to be forgotten. Both A and B Team Cheerleaders did a very fine job. Both groups worked out many new yells and changed the style of cheer- leadin . The A Team Cheerleaders also worked out several Fight Songs. The cheering 8 section proved to be a very fine one consisting of a good response from the kids and peppy Chee rleade r s .

The work is primarily a refresher course for the young men that have been farming. and who intend to make Agriculture their career. It is a laboratory training program with the students using their farms as laboratories to carry on the work that is taught in the classroom. through extension meetings. and clinics of various kinds. Shop work is a major course to help the students receive a better knowledge of repair of farm machinery, and its care and operation, and also to make the farm a healthier and better place on which to live. The Veterans enrolled are also encouraged to participate in all activities relating to Agriculture and making the community a better place in which to live. Many of these men are now or have been members of their local school boards. township officials. or officers of local farm organizations, Veterans Organizations and many others in which they have been receiving training as leaders, and in making them better citizens of the community. During the past year these men have exhibited grain and livestock at the Crookston Winter Shows and the Norman County Fairs. winning many honors for themselves. '59 ere and llefe Burton Rockstad.

Geraldine Schultz., and Hazel Teters. We were all talking over our kindergarten days. and remembered bringing our little rugs to school for our afternoon nap but thought that was rather childish now. We were all waiting for Friday afternoon when we could play in the rhythm band. Such beautiful music! Kenneth Iverson joined us in second grade. We will all remember Miss Bell hugging jim all the time. Third Grade brought Alice Brantl and Maxine Miller into our midst. Remember laughing at Maxine's declamation about the big yellow squash? Fourth grade saw no additions to our class except in the form of a globe we bought--the better to understand our geography. Remember Betty's birthday party when we all had ice cream and cake right in the room? Alvin Vakoch, Donna Mae Larsen, Morris Sprung, and Walter Books joined us in the fifth grade. If we weren't spending our time listening to the radio we bought. we were sliding down the fire escape. Remember when we all got stuck in it fthe fire escape, not the radiol. and everybody wanted their "mommy"? joyce Olson, Charles Ambuehl. joan Running, Lucille Drake, and Verona Hasz were added in the sixth grade. Everybody was always looking at the clock we bought for our room to see if it was time for afternoon lunch. Only trouble was they didn't give us enough. Act II--junior High School Geraldine left us in the seventh grade but Clinton Sorenson, Sanford Sorenson, Arne Strom, Wilma johnson, and Burton Rockstad joined the rest of us scared little things and prepared to venture out into the big unknown world of high school. Remember when Miss Magee gave us tap dancing lessons? fAfter school, not during calssl. Remember the program put on before the Carnival when we were in the eighth grade? jim and Erlin were the front and hind parts of a ferocious gook in the "Adam Hindpaw Barndoor Bailhy Ringless Circus and Carnival. " Ruth Anderson, johnny Brarner, Robert Burley, Iona Mae Hinrichs, Petra jacobson, Larry Skalsky, and joAnn Wilkens were added to our class in our Freshman year. We all thought we were pretty big 'cuz now we could go to the school parties. Act lll--Senior High School We worked hard on the bonfire in our Sophomore year. We took about half of Gerald Cirk's woods to make it. Remember Philip's Christmas present to jim at our class Christmas party? The color was pink. So was jimmy's face. We were really proud of ourselves in our junior year. Everybody feven the Indexl said we gave the best prom Ada has ever had. We really worked hard enough on it! We also took second in the Inter-Class Tournaments. Silas Simonson and Ben Fischer were added to our class when we finally became big Seniors. Geraldine Schultz came back too. Everyone will agree that Phyllis made a very pretty homecoming queen. One thing we will never forget is Mr. Eid's Social Class and his lovely tests!
