EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
In writing a preface for your publidation, nThe Argo,' oneFs
thoughts at this time of the year naturally turn towards your '
coming graduation. For many years you hive been preparing your-
selves in order that you might lntelllge tly take your place in n
society. The days of formal school preparation are drawing to a
closeg the days of active participation in business and community T
activities are rapidly approaching. The journey,of life that you e
have traveled so far has been relatively smooth, with parental andj
teacher guidance at your assistance at e ch step. Now you will be
placed more on your own initiative, and the progress that you will
make will be determined by your own ability, ambition, perseverance
and the preparation you have and will meme. l
Be not numbered among those hoping for success, but unwilling
to pay the price. Let not the philosophm of the d1sgruntled-- l
that success to you can come from some helpful influence from the ,
outside--divert you from tolling towardsayour objective. Our v
civilization was not developed by wishfu' thinking. Learn early l
these old fashioned truthsg that gain do s not come without toil, p
that authority means responsibility, that toil is essential beforel
profits may be realized, and that progress comes through pain. i
Noble lives are built on this philosophya
My hope for you is that you preparelyourselves efficiently o
for the task you hope to perform. That with high ideals and noblel
purpose, and with the courage, perseverance and confidence of the i
crusader of old, you view the problems confronting you as they are,
not as you wish that they were, and thatlyou grapple with these v
problems as they are. This is the first step towards making them
be what you wish they were. No one can do for you what you can 1
do for yourself. ,
. I v
With this philosophy in mind you will find that the world does
have needs. We have not found the perfect solution for any of ourl
problems. There are better ways of making things. There is a l
need for making better things and more things for mo? people. 4 d
There is a decided need for courage, for,d1l1gence, qr understand+
lag, for wisdom, for invention, for selfireliance, and for leader-,
s ip. , Q Q ,
. Q Q
What you do, do it the hard way. Give more of yourself to
your job than your Job requires or has alright to expect. Do it, l
better than it need be done. Allow nethlng to stand between you
and a difficult task. The world greatlyyneeds what you can give. t
May this nArgoU help perpetuate thefpleasant memories and.
cherished friendships you have formed amdng both students and
teachers., May the record of your schoolzday achievements serve
to inspire greater accomplishments in years to come.

THE HISTORY OF THE ADAMS HIGH SOHOOL
The first public school of the village of Adams was built in
the year 1869, with an accomodation for 100 pupils, and twenty
four years later the second school was built east of the tennis
court with an enrollment of 120 pupils., John Griffin of Austin'
was principal and had charge of'the upper classes, and Miss Loretta
Guinney had charge of the lower classes. The following are the .
names of the teachers that taught in the succeeding years: Supt.
Thaddeus Thompson, Miss Susie Rattely, and Mary Scanlon Howell.
T 'With the increase in the number of pupils a new room had to
be added with Miss Carrie Slindee in charge. Miss Andrews had
charge of the primary grades, making an average of 52 pupils to
each room. p
Occasionally plays were given for the purpose of obtaining
money to redecorate the rooms., Every two weeks a program, which
was similar to our present P. T . A., was given.
When William Masteloor became principal in 1902, he had a
class that undertook the work of the first year high school, which
was continued until our present school was built. ,
Superintendent Scow remained three years in the public school.
In 1903, the Catholic School was built, which took one-half
of the students from the public school.
-The present school was built in 1916-17 and opened in the fall
of 1919 with L. S. Kildahl acting as superintendent. Since then,
R. A. Peterson, R. G. Hoveland, C. E. Ulvestad, V. D. Ha1vorson,,
and H. J. Sorkness have been superintendents. The dedication pro-
gram of 1917 discloses the cost of the building as being S44,000.
The members of thetschool board at that time were:
Schneider, , . . , , President., J. JZ Fardahl
A. Amble.......... Treasurer L. Lewison
A. Torgerson...... Clerk Ole Bergene
In 1918-19 there was an enrollment of 240 pupils in the whole
school. Today we find more pupils are attending high school both
from our own district and from the adjoining rural districts, so Q
that the high school enrollment is as large as our grade enrollment
In 1918-19 three students were graduated on completing their
highschool course, and in 1920 eleven students were graduated af-
ter.hav1ng completed four years of high school. The smallest
class of nine students were graduated in 1922.
I.. ' ' d 1 I , P
. In January 1936, work was started onzour gymnasium auditori-
um and was completed in September 1936. On October 30th, the ded-
ication services were held in the auditorlum with Dr. John Rock- .
well, Commissioner of Education, giving the address. I

This new addition has provided splendid facilities for our f
physlcal education classes, basket ball games, dramatic contests,
school plays, concerts by our musical organizations, and for our
P. T. A. meetings. This new addition serves as a nucleus around
which all our school activities, as a whale, center. The sub-
distrlct basket ball tournament has been held at Adams during the
past three years. i 9 9
Practical training in vocational subjects ls also given our.
students. 'The boys have agricultureg theggirls, home economics.
In 1937-38, a commercial department was added to our regular
course of study, which included typewrlting,.bookkeep1ng, and
shorthand. Q - ' 1 I

4 The total enrollment in the grades in 1939 is 109 pupils,
and the total high school enrollment is ll5 pupils. Our en-
rollment in high school is steadily increhsing. '
7 During the school years 1937-1939, tsansportation has been I
provided for many of the high school pupils living outside of our I
district. The transportation costs have been paid-for by the I
rural districts. These districts are pantially reimbursed through
state aid for their transportation costss Mr. Gosha is transport-j
ing the high school.pup11s from districts 74, 99, 67, and 96 to
the Adams High School. We hope that transportation will soon be
provided fer all students living in the Adams High School area. I

Hoist the sails! Draw up the anchor! All aboard I In Sept.
1927, with twenty-four eager little passengers, we embarked on
our twdive-year Journey in which we were to visit the twelve
ports of Adams Public School. These bright-eyed children were:
Joel Anderson, Harold Asper, Ila Mae Bates, Helen Bates, James'
Erckenbrack, Marjorie Halverson, Bernie Hanson, Alton Johnson,
Pearl Knutson, Rose Carol Larson Warren Matteson, Sigurd Osmund-
son, Kenneth Peterson, Lorraine Quale, Gertrude Ruetten, Marcelle
Severson, Vernon Sorflaten, Howard Thompson, Eunice Torgerson, '
Roy Torgerson, Isabel Wohlers, Pearl Williamson, Dale Williamson,
and William Wiste. We began our elementary school career under
the supervision of Miss Hazel Hageng and through her careful guid-
ance, we received the essentials of learning in Port I.
Upon completion of our first year of the voyage, we entered
Port II with a cheerful attitude. We were indeed a peppy group
and always had a new idea which we wanted to put across whether
lt was good or bad. Miss Blakeslee took over teaching duties
during this period.
Miss Kampa led us safely through third grade. A check up
at this time reveals that there were nine boys and eight girls.
,Sevenl had dropped out since 1927.
In 1930 we entered Port IV with Miss Alma Harris as teacher.
At the end of this grade we felt as though we really knew a lot
and sail ed into the fifth grade with a great desire for deeper
In 1952 we were trfnty C15 boys, 7 girlsi little voyagers
in Port VI. Miss Helen Cole, who was keeper of Port VI, did her
very best to teach us all the fundamentals of knowledge. I
Miss Helen Bertram governed the twenty, seventh grade pupilsg
and in the eighth grade we increased to twenty-four in enrollment
Miss Bertram taught us the good policy of discipline and courtesy.
When we learned that we were to go into the freshman class, we
felt we had accomplished something great. With eight years of
knowledge with us and four more to receive, we were ready to drop
anchor in the high school assembly.
I 11 .. n w . ,L,-MMM
On freshman deck were found twenty-six passengers with their '
usual green initiation caps. The class consisted of: Frieda Amble,
Ruby Anderson, Roberta Barthelme, Cleo Heimer, Madonna Keifer, g
Pauline Kloekner, Pearl Knutson, Angella Miller, Lorraine Quale,
Eunice Torgerson, Juletta Winkels, lsabel Wohlers, Terry Ganney,
James Krebsbach, Alton Johnson, Wilbur Koloen, Willard Knutson, t
James Erckenbrack, Forrest Lane, Vernon Schaefer, Vernon Sorflatem,
Martin Prescott, Howard Thompson, Roman Winkels, Laurence G00fGCHf.
and William Wiste. With Mr. Allyn Hagen as our class advisor we
carried the following-subjects: algebra and business training
taught by Mr. A, Johnsong general science by Miss Kraker and Mr.
Hageng English, Miss Petersong home economics, Miss Krakerg and
agriculture, Mr. Hagen. We also took part in many activities such
as glee club, basketball, and football.
Leaving our freshman year behind, we scrambled up one,deck
higher to take the proud title of sophomores. As a class we got
the most enjoyment we could out of everything we undertook. Miss
Lois Padelford, English teacher, was our aimiable class advisor
on this deck. A
In l957, we took another big jump and found ourselves on
,third deck and excitedly holding the title of Junior Class. The
big event of our junior year was the junior-senior banquet at the
Hotel Austin in Austin, Minnesota. Our class meetings were al-
ways a scene of enthusiastic and excited pupilsg but when it came
to deciding something really important, we were all together and
a true class spirit reigned over all, Mrs. Zimmerman was our
class advisor during this year. We took part in various activ-
ities other than our school subjects. Another important event
of the year was our class play, nLitt1e Womenn, presented on March
51, 1958. After selecting our class rings, we felt prepared to
go into our senior year.
In 1958 we took our last important step on our voyage and
became dignified seniors. With a lot of class spirit we cooperat-
ed in publishing a very good Argo and presenting our class play
Mr. Sorknes was our class'adv1sor duringuour senior year.
During our four years of high school we formed many friendships
that will be deemed precious in years to come.
Of the twenty-four pupils that started first grade together
in 1927, only nine remain to be graduated together. They are:
James Erckenbrack, Alton Johnson, Pearl Knutson, Lorraine Quale,
Vernon Sorflaten, Howard Thompson, Eunice Torgerson, Isabel Woh-
lers, and William Wiste. ' f
Leaving dear old Adams High School behind, we are all going
out into this big world extending our most grateful appreciation
to our parents and teachers for all the,helpful advice and ser-
vice they have given us on our long journey through this insti-
tution of knowledge, Adams High School. Our most pleasant and
remembered days were spent in school

lt 18 the big event of the year! Homecoming at dear old
Adams High on November ll, 1944. It is a huge success, for
beside winning the football game, most of the 1959 seniors are
back to witness the football ability of the 944W team.
Passing down the sidelines and walking through the newly
constructed bleechers, a young man could be seen sitting very,
tense and looking very proud. It was Dr. James,A. Erckenbrack.
Why was he so proud? He had pulled a tooth for Judy Garland
just two days ago, and he isn't over the thrill, M
Beside the doctor sits a good looking chap. It is Terry
Canney, who hltchhlked all the way from Florida to be here for
homecoming. Terry now has the title, known the world over, of

A young lady now raises her voice to call the popcorn man.
Well, if it 1sn't that famous dress designer, who ls at present
a fashion councellor at Marshall Field's in Chicago. Isabel 4,
always said that was her goal. The series of articles she wrote
after her trip to Paris certainly is tops in the fashlon world.,
Sitting next to the young lady is a handsome man. Yes, it
is John Sorflaten,' He's really a success as an accountant with
a salary simply enormous. He has just been promoted to business
manager of a large firm in Maryland..
- Say, that voice sounds familiar, Of course, it's James
Krebsbach. He has that rather dignified look now, for he is
teaching school at Duluth, Minnesota. ,

has a very promising future in beauty culture.' P 1
That can't be Eunice Torgerson, can,1t? How she has
changed! She must have done something to her hair lshe got her
last permanent at the Star Beauty SalonJ. Eunice is quite proud
of herself and has reason to be for she is a Home Demonstration,
agent up North. Now she is making plans of using her Home

That chap that just walked by was Mr. Knutson, president of
the National Bank at San Francisco, and the man down in front who
can't be quiet is Wilbur Koloen, now better known as Billy Kel
whose orchestra is heard every Wednesday night on the air.
Doesn't Miss Barthelme look cute in a nurse's costume and
cloak. Being head supervisor at a Los Angeles Hospital cer-
tainly keeps her looking fine. ,
Juletta Winkels enters the bleachers now, She certainly
knows the law now, for she is private secretary for a very

The traditional Junior-Senior banquet was given at the
Fox Hotel in Austin on the evening of May 20, 1959. The theme of
the banquet was the New York World's Fair.
The senior class colors, old rose and silver, were carried
out in the table decorations. The center piece on each table was
formed by miniatures of the two main buildings at the Fair, the
Trylon and the Perisphere. The place cards were also outlines of
these two buildings, and each guest was provided with a means of
transportation which were toy cars, ships, airplanes, and busses.
A three-course dinner was served, consisting of the following
menus: Fruit cocktail, Assorted relishes, Roast Loin of Pork, ,
Apple sauce, Buttered peas and carrots, Whipped potatoes, Waldorf
salad, Hot dinner rolls, Coffee, Milk, Pineapple Sundae, and Cake.
W After the dinner a program was presented. Herman Klapperich
very ably aoted as toastmaster. The program consisted of the

where they saw the show, uI'm From M1ssour1.'
THE 1959 SENIOR TRIP TO FARIBAULT
On May 10, 1959, Mr. Sorknes took his senior Social Problems
class to Faribault, Minnesota to visit the state institutions.
We have studied, during the past year, the education of the blind,
deaf, and the feeble-minded. It was very interesting to visit
these state institutions.
The institution for the feeble-minded was the first place we
visited. A social worker took us through the administration build-
ing and then to the various buildings where the different types of
the feeble-minded were kept. She explained to the class the dif-
ferent types of inmates, those where heredity was the cause and
those where the mental defectiveness were a result of secondary
causes, such as high fevers, accidents, and injuries. We visited
the industrial classes where those of higher mental ability were
working. , '
We next visited the institution for the blind. We gathered
in the chapel where Mr. Burhow, the principal, gave a talk on the
education of the blind. He had a girl from the second grade read
for us from her readers. The librarian showed us the school lib-
rary. She explained the system by which the blind throughout the
state may receive books from the library. She also told us that
no postage is charged for carrying these books through the malls.
We then visited the school for the deaf. The principal,
Miss Quinn, took us to the first, second, and third grades. She
explained the process of teaching a child to talk who,1s unable
to hear, The process is a purely mechanical one and a great deal
of patience is necessary in teaching the deaf to talk.' She showed
us a girl they have there who was born both deaf and blind. Her,
case is similar to that of Helen Keller. They have worked with
this girl for three years before any noticable progress was made.
She will be sent to Boston next yean'where more specialized instru-
ction for both the blind and deaf is provided. We were then taken
through the upper grades and high school. The principal took us
through the various trade schools where the students may learn
EL trade 0
On our way home we stopped at the Woolen Mills, where we saw
how Faribo Blankets are made from the time the wool is carded to
the packing of the finished blankets in boxes. Most of the wool
in this factory is from our native land, about one-fourth of the
wool used 1s imported.
Our next stop was at Owatonna where we visited the Josten
Company. There we saw the process of making rings and trophies
for schools. No matter how small or how large a ring is, it must
go through the same process in making,

The newlyweds, Skip and Jean Tolliver, come with the real-
estate agent, Dr. Wilfred Steele, to buy a house of questionable
character. While the two men go to prepare the contract, Jean
falls asleep and dreams this very unusual play
Dr. Wilfred Steele is the proprietor of Wildwood Sanitorium,
a questionable institution for the feeble-minded. Sonia Petroff,
the head nurse, has allowed herself to become a victim of the
doctor's hypnotic power through infatuation. Rose Colfax, a
lovely girl in her teens, is brought to the sanltorium by a de-
signing aunt who desires that Rose be declared insane for mercen-
ary reasons. Rosefs beau, Clyde Loring, and a friend, Eve Pat-
terson, feel that there is something amiss when Rose is secreted
from her home and follow her to the institution. There they find
a succession of the most gruesome chills awaiting them.
Suddenly interest turns to Jean Heather, a delightful '
assistant nurse, and Skip Tolliver, a young man of all work. The
audience find them taking a particular interest in all that is
going on. And in the

Our voyage, as a whole,was a very interesting one during
our freshman year. We drew in the anchor in June for a three-

position. The following year we had Captain Emily Hanke. .
In the fall we began our voyagegjust where we left off and
sailed successfully for another year. We were then called
We are now Ndignifiedu juniors with two new sailors in our
crew, Margaret Duggan and Herbert Jasperson. On October 15,
1958, we were saddened by the death of one of our dearest mates,
In May our crew presented the play, NPanther's Glawn, under
the supervision of one of our captains, Miss Sylvia Larson. Our
trip ended with the Junior-+Sen1or Banquet.
SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
In September, 1957, our crew, consisting of 42 sailors,
glided into our first harbor. We are proud to boast that our
crew is the largest in a number of years. We were treated like
a mere fresh crew. One day it was our privilege to entertain
the rest of our shipmates with our green caps, dresses, and shirts
worn backwards, with different shoes and stockings on our feetg
and an amateur program in the evening. fFreshmen.initiationJ
Hallowe'en is always a time of fun. On this occasion we
held our first party. Many interesting games were played: after
which a lunch was served. ' - r
For one year we sailed along successfully and finally land-
ed in an unfamiliar port labeled USophomoren. A few sailors
left us: but we welcomed two more, namely: Lucille Heffern and
Paul Larson. Of our 42 beginners we have 55 left.
The officers elected for the past year were: President,
Virginia Becky Vice President, Byron Husebyg Secretary, Mary
Gerber: and Treasurer, Eugene Knutson.
After two years of sailing, we are all glad to welcome a 1
three month vacation. r
FRESHMEN CLASS HISTORY
As freshmen we enrolled September 5, 1938 in the Adams High
School. Our class was composed of thirty-three members, of which
twelve were girls and twenty-one, boys.
The requirements for the freshmen course of study were
mathematics, English, general science, general business training,
home economics for the girls, and agriculture for the boys.
. Last fall the freshmen held their first class party in thef
gymnasium, We played games and enjoyed refreshments afterwards.
Another social event of the year was the freshmen initia-
tion. The boys were required to wear dresses, and the girls
dressed like boys. The upper-classmen painted our faces and,
tied green ribbons around the boys' heads, and the girls wore
green neckties. Some of the freshmen were hard to recognize.
In the afternoon we entertained the football fans with a snake
dance in the center of the field. In the evening, the fresh-
men were given a party by the rest of the high school.
T Some of the members of our class did good work in extra
curricular activities. Carleton Johnson won the Junior High
School free throw contest and get a letter in basketball.
June Otto won first place in the sub-district high school
declamatory contest in the humorous division and won second
place in the district contest. Edgar Meister won first place
in the oratorical division in the local contest. We hope that
our class will distinguish itself in future years as much as it
has this year. ,

We are the UArgonautsF
And lay away a treasure t
That cannot be forgot. 4
When friendship links seem broken
A And memories fade away, .
Just open wide the WArgoW
And while the hours away.
I love to take WThe Argon .
And look its pages throughg
I know that I shall find there 4
My friends and teachers too.
And when my heart is lonely
And days seem void of grace,
I like to take WThe Argon
To see each smiling face.

SYNOPSIS , ,
y WSantafs,Vacat1onW takes place in the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Santa Claus at the North Pole. When the operetta begins, we
find that Mrs. Santa 1s,a bit disgruntled over a last minute
order for five additional Christmas dolls. Fairies, too, complain
about being over-worked. Elves are out of spirits. They had
gone ahead without Santa's orders making toy soldiers and guns,
and Santa had thrown them on the junk heap, for he was done with
such presents for good.
e All the irritation is blamed on Santa, and all insist he
needs a vacation and they could manage as well without him.
Santa good-naturedly consents and starts in his airplane for
the South Role. When he is gone, it is discovered that the
Sandman, the Magic Sack, the reindeer, all have gone with him,
for they were all too much a part of him.
is at its height, Santa returns, just in time, to the relief
and delight of all, for they had learned that there could be
no Christmas without him.

bers of the crew received a letter WAN signifying one year of
sailing. p p I
The senior members, Roberta Barthelme, Frieda Amble, Isabel
Wohlers, Eunice Torgerson, and Cleo Heimer, received their letterc
earlier, a reward for four years of sailing with the Glee Club.
BOYS' GLEE CLUB
The snip ofdnusic added a new department, the Boys' Glec
Club, to its crew on March 29, 1939. The captain of the club,
M1SS Jones, has proved very capable in directing us. .The total
membership of twenty-seven include fourteen tenors and thirteen
bass voices. .
'We worked on several selections for boys'.and men's voices,
and also for mixed chorus. Among these were: WDr1nk to me only
w1th,Th1ne'Eyesu, nRoses cf Piccardyn, and nShcrt'n1ng Breadn.
We have also worked on several old favorites for our own amuse-
The boys have taken a great interest in the glee club, and
next year we hope we will have the privilege of singing at sev-
Anchors Aweighll When the ship pulled out of the harbor last
fall, it had on its deck a good band, ln which there were about
thirty-five members. This band is under the direction of our
faithful captain, W. Stegeman. A
The band has given two excellent concerts during the year, at
the Adams High School. For special numbers our captain had on
deck the three trumpeteers, the saxaphone quartette, and instrua
mental soloists. On these voyages we were also accompanied by
the glee club. -
The band seems to have a pet march, called WThe Mariner Marchu
the one.where Bergene can show his talent on the base horns This
march made a hit with the public as well.
In the distance we saw the lighthouse, and anchored into the '
harbor again. We seniors, who will not be back on deck next year,
hope that there will be many new members, and we firmly beleive
that old Adams High will have a good band.

ber 5. A great deal of interest was manifested by the people of
the community in this corn shew, A very liberal award of prizes
were provided by the business and professional men of Adams.
There were over 55 entries of field run corn. Entries were re-
ceived from farmers in all directions, as far south as the Iowa
line and east into the Taopi area.
Since this was a contest of field run corn, the picking of
the corn was supervised by Mr, Brooks and the agriculture boys.
The boys were extremely busy during the fall picking: weighing,
shelling, and testing the moisture content of the corn, The ag-
riculture room was decorated most appropriately for a show of
this kind and the corn was very attractively displayed.
Although this was primarily a contest of field run corn,
many other prizes were listed and entries received. Prizes were
offered for the best ten ears of corn, for grains and seeds of
all kinds, for sewing, baking and canned goods. The woman's de-
partment was housed in the home economics rooms. Nineteen lots
of entries in sewing, cooking and canning were provided for. A
wnmanfg Committee consisting of Miss Ardys Christiansen, Mrs.
J, C, Knutson, Mrs. Clara Torgerson, Mrs. William Wohlers, and
Mrs, Roland Brooks arranged for this department., ,

matter what the odds are. The night before the game, there was
a pep fest and fire works to instill in the boys the school
spirit. The day before the game dawned clear and bright.
Right before, a large homecoming parade was organized, which
paraded through the main section of town and beck to'the school

The tree that never had to fight
For sun and sky and air and light,
That stood out in the open plain,
And always got its share of rain, ,
Never became a forest king
But lived and died a scrubby thing.
The man who never had to toil,
Who never had to win his share
Of sun and sky and light and air,
Never became a manly man,
But lived and died as he began.
Good timber does not grow in ease,
The stronger wind, the tougher trees,
The Tarther sky, the greater lengthy
The more the storm, the more the strength
By sun and cold, by rain and snows,
In tree or man good timber grows.
Where thickest stands the forest growth
We find the patriarehs of both,
And they hold converse with the stars
Whose broken branches show the scars
Of many winds and much of strife--
Thls is the common law of life.
