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
