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 I 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.

Z4 Gvida 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. W I 1 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 - - 1 . 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.

W l 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 Q - 1 v J 7A fl dleo-Heimer" A e I 5 3 I I . ' I 3 It 1 .shura , W , 'nh Nt!

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 learning. 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. W ,. 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 WBeyond,Reasonn. , 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 f ' Isabel Wohlers ' LAST WILL AA A of ' A THE 1959 SENIOR CLASS A We, the 1959 seniors, of Adams High School, of Adams, Mower County, State of Minnesota, do hereby make, publish, and declare this to be our last will and hereby revoke all former wills and codioils by us at any time heretofore made. lLawrence Goergen leaves his faithful old jalopy to Sigurdy Osmundson.

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 nLadies Gentlemann. , 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. , The game ls to start in five mlnutesg and in rides Mr. Lawrence Georgen, king of the speedways, with his H1926 Jalopyu. Lawrence has just returned from Indianapolis where he took first prize at the tin can derby.: The girls with the1r hair just so, why of course, that's Miss Iverson, now the owner of the Star Beauty Salon at Albert Lea, and girl with her is her assistant, Madonna Kiefer, who 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 Ec. knowledge in a home of her own.f All congratulations to her, h,.,,, Here comes Miss Heimer in a stunning frock. They say she ' is part owner of a dress shop in Miami. - Who is the young lady with the notebook and pencil? Why of course, that's Lorraine, now a private secretary to the govere- nor of Minnesota. . ' 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 prominent attorney at Dallas. A ' , U A The man who just drove up in the blue packard is Bill Wiste 0 He is a prosperous farmer near Owatonna, and his corn won the blue ribbon at the state fair last year. , , " There are Ruby Anderson and Pearl Knutson together. I hear .these girls now have a novelty shop in Toronto, Canada. , ft lThat distinguished looking gentleman on the left is Mr. M. Prescott. He took his Ag, boys with him too, I see, for Martin is an Ag. teacher at Seattle, Washington. I Down by the south goal post are two men deeply engaged in conversation. I believe that is Mr. Gosha, a dairy farmer near Racine, Wisconsin, and he is talking to Mr. Schaefer, who owns a filling station in Racine, 9 Look at the sailor, girls! Well, one boy from our class took to the sea, That's Roman Winkels in the spiffy uniform. Listen to that pep band. It is quite a treat for them to have as their guest director, Miss Frieda Amble, who now swings a baton at Roosevelt H. S. in Washington D. C, . ' There's the president of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. of the Washington branch. Kevin really made a name for himself. A Here comes Alton Johnson, now known as the WAr1zona Cattle Kingn. He owns a thousand acre cattle ranch in Arizona. .Time marches on, and so does Mr. Thompson. He has a,very business-like manner and is carrying a brief case. No wonder, he is a salesman for a large concern in Detroit, Michigan. , And so the whistle blows and the game starts with a bang! What a homecoming!

V .-5 'L As IL .l.., 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 following: Welcome to the Fair ------- - Margaret Wllkey Going to the Fair --------- Cleo Hiemer Piano Duet P - - - ------ - - Miss Sanders Miss Jones Class Will - - - + ------- - Wilbur Koloen Class Prophesy ---------- Kevin Sass Vocal Trio - - - - 'Harbor L1ghtsU,Cleo Hiemer Margaret Wilkey Arlene Otto President of the Fair Board ---- Mr. Sorknes Here is New York --------- Mr. Glesne Farewell ------------- Mrs. Zimmerman At the close of the program, the entire group joined in singing several school songs. The Juniors then took their guests to the Paramount Theatre 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, COMMENGEMENT Pnocalm ' ' Thursday, June 1, 8215 P.M.

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 two colored servants, spirits. Wolfe is an midst of this bedlam are Dusty and Delilah, who are dodging what they suppose are inmate who has been locked in a dungeon and tortured for five years. All members of the cast took their part in a very creditable manner. ,The play was well presented and a great deal of credit is due to Miss Jones for the excellent coaching that the students received. y PROPERTY: Lawrence Goergen, Eunice Torgerson, Eugene Gosha, and Frieda Amble.

' Our total crew on that September was twenty-six, namely: Joel Anderson, Harold Asper, William Asper, Florence Brewer, Genevieve Brewer, Gall Bundy, Robert Flnbraaten, Evelyn Harring- ton, Joseph Jax, Emery Johnson, Herman Klapperick, Shirley Lar- son, Bernette' Mandler, Warren Matteson, Mae Meister, Roman Mullenback, Sigurd Osmundson, Arlene Otto, Frederick Schaefer, Bertha Severson, Marcelle Severson, Jean Tiegen, Roy Torgerson, gelestine Vogt, Ethelyn Wigness, Vernon Wlnkels, and Marie inkels. Our voyage, as a whole,was a very interesting one during our freshman year. We drew in the anchor in June for a three- month rest. Our captain, Allyn Hagen, then received another 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 nsillyu sophomores. 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, Genevieve Brewer. 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. Jean Tiegen 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 . -4, 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 Neva Quale 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. , Natalie Erckenbrack -Q -I 4- H rpg. 'A' 51:92.

A THE GRADE OPERETTA, NSANTA'S VACATIONN A Christmas operetta presented by the grade children has become a tradition at Adams. This year the grades, under the direction of Miss Sanders, presented the operetta, WSanta's Vacation.u 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. When consternation 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.

'Thirty-five high school girls have made up the crew this year. We have had hardly an absence all year, with the excep- tion of a few cases of sea-sickness. . Our first-mate, Frieda Amble, was accompanist for our crew, The shlpmates have sung in many special ports, some of which are: the concert given at P.T.A., the.Chr1stmas program, com- mencement exercises, and baccalaureate. I I A few members of the sh1p's crew: Arlene Otto, Jean Tiegen, Virginia Beck, Eunice Torgerson, Ruth Anderson, Isabel Wohlers, and Marjorie and Margaret Duggan sang at many special occasions. Some of the songs they sang on this trip are: WThe Bells of St. Mary'sn, WGo1n' Homen, WI Passed,by Your Windowu, Ultalian Street Songn, WG1ann1an Mian, NThe World is Waiting for the Sun- rieeu WAllah' Holida 0 WThe Glow Worm' US athyn and U 1 S yy 3 !

Q This year, when our ship came into home port, all the mem- 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. ' Margaret.Duggan 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- ment. 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- eral performances. Eugene Knutson e BAND 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. ' Q Frieda Amble 7 ' JUNIOR HIGH CHORUS ' A The Junior High Chorus was begun in 1956, by Miss Marie Sanders. -A number of new members have been added this year mak- ing a total of thirty-one members, namely: Amanda Bratten, Marion Smith, Elsie Wood, Le Donna Johnson, La Verne Johnson, Vivian Severson, Archie Hanson, Allen Knutson, Frederick Bolton, Ralph OWU, Junald Berg, Willard Anderson, Donald Tiegn, Vincent Bolton Dorothy Torgerson, Patricia Erckenbrack, Donis Osmundson, Evelyn' Anderson, Margaret King, David Wiste, Irwin Tiegen, Ward Bergene, Arvella Johnson, Merna Barke, Katheleen Lewison, Romona Anderson, Neal Sllndee, Robert Wigham, James Berg, Adeline Hanson, and Eve Tucker. - A During the past year we sang WMountain,StreamW by Mary Brew- ster, an arrangement from Beethoven's nM1nuet in GU and uFa1th in the Futuren by Marion Lord. At commencement we sang the selec- tion, WThe Old Ganoen. J ' A large number from the Junior High Chorus participated in the vocal selections in our Christmas operetta. During the coming years We hope the grade children will be interested in the Junior Chorus and continue making it an out- standing muslcal organization in our school. A Elsie Wood ' A fffffe ,6TF?9.

GOOD TIMBER 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. 4 wsmrwlll W I L. u lg 2. 32 49 5? 54 72 89 92 10, 11, 12, 15, 14, 15, 16, 17, 12, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 24, 25, 26, 27, 22, 29, so, 51, 52, cs, 54, 55, KEY To SNAP SHOTS ON OPPOSITE PAGE 0 A familiar view from the school ground.
