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.

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,

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
