My congratulations eve extended to the members of the senior
class for satisfactorily completing your high school training.
For twelve years you have been preparing yourselves that, you
m1ght,more efficiently and intelligently take your place in soc -
iety. 'To many of you these formal days of training are past. The
future, as the brilliant rising sun in the early hours of the
morning, now rises before you.
A phillsopher once divided people into classesg the tough--
minded and the tender-minded. The tough-m1nded.he called the re-
alists. They see matters not as they wish they were but as they
are. They set out to grapple with them as they are, which is the
first step to make them what they wish they were. They have con-
fidence in themselves, and they depend upon themselves.
The tender-minded see matters not as they are but as they
wish they were. They are looking for improvement to come from
some helpful influence outside themselves. They are the perpet-
ual wearers of rose-colored glasses. They want gain without risk
honor without sacrifice, security without denial, profit without
investment, ease without toil, progress without pain. They don't
want to pay.
Each age has had these two classes of people. The world will
always have them. Our country was built, developed and will go
forward to even greater accomplishments by the realists, who see
matters as they are, not as they wish them to be. The pioneers
who struggled westward over barren prairies with their oxen and
covered wagons had visions that their efforts, planning and hard
work would transform these barren prairies to the land of their
dreams. They were tough-minded realists who were willing to pay
the price. U
Each age has its opportunities and its problems. Has the
world no needs today? Are all the tasks finished, all the new
ones hbegun? Is there no need for courage, for diligence, for
understanding, for invention, for self-reliance, for leadership ?
Have we found the perfect solution of all our problems, for un-
employment, for justice as between all men, for unity among all
people? Has everyone everything he wants?' Are there no better
ways of making things, of making better things, or of making
more things for more people? Viewed in this light the world
never presented more opportunities.
As the years go by may this ARGO help perpetuate the cher-
ished friendships that you have formed among students and teacher
May it help recall the ideals that you have been taught and serve
as an inspiration to make your life rich and your contributions
many and precious.

'ik MOTH R on a September morning came to the foot of
Ava a twelve-year hill with a small child. When it was
ig almost nine o'clock, she came to a school house
X27 1 ?QL which was so silent that it seemed empty of all
life. Trembllng with fear of what might come before her child,
she softly opened the door of the first grade room. Then she
waited. Around her were many-little desks: and in front of her
were several large windows. Again she waited and then she saw
coming toward her a strange teacher who was called the centaur.
Knowing that the teacher would be a good influence
on her child, the mother stepped forward and said, Class
" I have come before thee and bid thee, if thou
wilt, take this child, Jason, and guard and foster him. As he
grows, instruct him with thy wisdom."
Then the centaur smoke. saying, HFor your sake I will rear
and foster this chi1d.N Jason, already seated at a desk, looked
up at the centaur. Now the teacher took Jason by the hand and
told the mother that she would teach him to the best of her ab-

1 M Earl Tiegen, the treasurerg Mr. Boyum, Mr. Knutson,
and Mr. Bergene. The beginning of all these hapnenings was in
a small Minnesota town by the name of Adams.
Now there was a kind hard-working man who had tration
for many years been the Janitor of the Argo and
knew all the ways of the life therein, His name was Joe Adams. He
always wore a friendly smile and welcomed the Argonauts as they

Mr. Sorknes was the captain. He had for First Mate, Mr. Glesne,
who was ever with the Argonauts in the assembly, He bade them
pass into the holds of the Argo in which they wished tO'Studya
The holds were marked by a sign entitled, HDa1ly Programn.
Some of the Argonauts went into the commercial hold of the-
ship. They found there Miss Jones, who was to be their lgader.
Others went into the agricultural hold where Mr. Hatle awaited
them. A group went into the home economics department. These
were instructed in the principles of homeemaking by Miss Christ-
ianson, During a part of the day the Argonauts were taught their
native language by Miss Larson. In order that they might be un-
derstood wherever they traveled, Mr, Stegeman directed them in
the art of a universal language, music.
The young Argonauts in the gr:des, who were also learning
the fundamentals that they ' j
might enter as great heroes 9 K
were taught in separate holds. I f
The seventh and eighth group guided ,p Wfb I
by Miss Batalden were about to begin S W N

first ship in 1869 Now there were 100 ouolls,
5 hence the dream for a better ship came to the
V ,WI T was many years before this that great timbers
builders and in 1893 this dream was fulfilled.
Then there were 112 Argonauts in the ship. The one who had this
wonderful dream, Mr. John Griffin, was in charge as orlncinal
over the whole group of sailors. His helper was Miss Loretta
In years to follow more were apoolnted to assist in the run-
ning of the ship which is called Argo. There were now four ass-
isting at the great task. Professor Thaddeus Thomoson, Miss
Susie Rattely, Mary Scanlon Howell, and Carrie Slindee.
Every year, the school grew larger and larger. During one
year,l905, the Catholic school was built and half of the pupils
left the Argo. In l902,under William Masterloor some were taking
first year high school work.
At last in 1916-17 after much labor over many years, the
great Argo which is our school at present was built. And when
it was finished a dedication program was held. It was here that
the cost of this great Argo was revealed as 344,000. The men who
oversaw this work were: Mr. Schneider, president: History
A. Amble, treasurerg A. Torgerson, clerkg J. J. School
Fardahlg L. Lewisongzand Ole Bergene. And in this
ship there was a neifcagtain, Mr. L. S. Klldahl. Since his time
other captains have been elected, R. A. Peterson, R,L. Hoveland,
C. E. Olvestad, V. D. Halverson, and H' J.AVSoI'knes.
As the message was sent over the whole land each year, more
and more Argonauts came. It was found necessary to add to the
Argo an auditorium. This was constructed in 1956 and on Qctober
50 of that year it was dedicated to the Argonauts by Dr. John
Rockwell, Commissioner of Education.
This new addition has proved a splendid help for physical
education, basketball, dramatics, plays, and concerts. It is a
place where all school activities center.
In order that the Argonauts might be trained in all ways
of life the home economics and agriculture departments furnished
special training and in 1957-58 the need of business training
was felt and the commercial hold was added to the ship.
And when the heroes for 1959-40 assembled aboard the great
Argo, it had in its holds 125 grade Argonauts. Jason and his
high school comrades numbered 112.
Everything was ready,and a good morning's breeze filled the
sails when the Argonauts set out on their seventieth voyage.

if 'e Qfwqi, HE centaur nourished Jason on the three r's read-
ing, 'r1t1ng, and 'r1nnme1Q1c.F0:f Shelter they had
555 AE a new building which had been erected in l9l6.When
kg! gk he had grown wise enough to leave the first grade,
the gentaur, which means teacher, let Jason have a card, whigh
showed that he was ready for the second grade. As he passed thr-
ough each grade: Jason began to know more and more about the sub-
jects he was studying and the course he was taking. The Centaur
would let the boy see her play with the hall and bat and fly the
kite and Jump the rope, Soon Jason, running beside her, lgqrnqd
to play the same games. No players were ever better trained than
those whose childhood and youth had been spent with
Centaur, the teacher. She made them more swift of H?g:ggy
foot than many of the other children: she made them
more ready with the ball and hat. Moreover the centaur taught Ja-
son the knowledge of the stars and the wisdom that had to do with
the ways of life in his country.
One day Jason started dreaming about his high school days.
Jason saw in his dream a vision of a new teacher.
When he reached the end of the eighth grade and proved him-
self ready by his ability, he took the examinations over all the
centaur had taught him, The centaur told Jason that he was not
ready to make the voyage through high school. Now the til Game
when he bade goodbye to the centaur, his great instructor. And
then he went from the grade school for the last time and started
off for high school, On his way he came to a river of difficulty
--choosing the course of his voyage. And as he was pondering on
what he should do, there came up to him this new teacher whom he
had seen in his vision, Her name was Medea. She asked Wwouldst
thou enter high school, where so many things await thee?N Great-
ly was the youth astonished to hear the woman whom he had seen.
Before he oould answer,she asked again, WWouldst thou enter high

He stood on the bank knowing that she had given him new
strength to go on. He now accepted her as a woman of great know-
ledge. Then she said, UGo into the schoo1,, Jasong go into the
school and whatever chance doth befall thee, act as one who has
the knowledge of a scholar.N She spoke and she was seen no more.
Then Jason went on into high school, a tall,great-11mbed,unknown
youth, dressed in a strange fashion, wearing but one sandal.
That day King Pel1as,walk1ng through the streets toward the
school, saw coming toward him a youth who was half shod. King
Pelias then remembered his mission, and straightway he gave ord-
ers to his guards to detain the youth. But the guards wavered
when they went toward him, for there was something about the
youth that put them in awe ,
of him. He came with the
guards, however, and stood
before the great Pellas.

Pelias being fearful of Jason gave way to the weaker side
and Jason entered his sophomore year, but Pelias resolved within
himself to detain the youth from the Golden Fleece. Jason came
into the sophomore hall.Here he was reunited with his old class-
mates and he told them his past experiences with the centaur and
other happenings in his life.
UT the time came when Jason rejoiced that his
E tAwfLe?: sophomore year had been so successfully spent.
gwwkyvu dig' The year had gone by and Jason found himself a
REA' junior. During this year the junior and sen-
h-hw?mM!Ml l5Q Argonauts were taken into a feasting shall,
the Fox Hotel, where they visited a great fair. In the banquet
room they saw long tables beautifully decorated with rose and
silver. In the center of each table was placed a miniature of
the Trylon and Perisphere, two large buildings at the fair.
All the girls strove to add grace and beauty to the banquet
They sat down at the beautifully decorated tables. And before
all the Argonauts the waiters placed a very delicious dinner. At
last Herman Klapperich, who acted as toastmaster, stood up.
Suddenly all became quiet as he spoke to them and said,HNow that
they got the Wor1d's Fair bu11t,they have to build it over again
because a man was so big he couldn't get 1n.H He
Spoke about what they would see during their ad- Junior-Senior
venture at the fair. Hwhen you go to lunch,N he May 1959
said, "beware of prices and of food, 33.50 a hot
deg and mustard with Grover Wheel1and's perm1ssion.N He told us
about a place called Ritz Hotel, where the manners were the best
and where lamb chops came with slacks on.
In this place there was an automatic bell and every time one
took the wrong weapon with which to eat, the bell rang. ,There
was one person there who made so much noise eating his soup that
the bell always rang--boy was I embarrassed!
Then Herman introduced Margaret Duggan as the first speaker
saying, WPleese listen to one of the nicest and best girls of the
junior class. With ease and grace Margaret rose and Uwelcomed
the Argonauts to the Fairn. Cleo Helmer told them how they might
WGo to the Falrn. Miss Jones and Miss Sanders played a piano
duet. When they finished playing, Herman smiled to himself and
looked upon them and said, WMy, but that was purtyiu

Then Wilbur Koloen arose and said, UTo you our instructors
and to you, future heroes we, the seniors, give all that we poss-
ess on condition that you make the 'best use of lt.N And when he
had flnlshed, he looked at many faces in the crowd and noticed
that Mr. Hatle's Judging team which brought high honors back with
them, was there: Mr. Hatle was there, too, but he brought some-
thing better, a maiden from Minneapolis.
Keven Sass was introduced, and he read a prophecy prepared
by Isabelle Wohlers, who told of the wonders that the fArgonauts
were to perform over the land after they gained the Golden Fleece
When the guests became quiet, Herman said, UHere we have
something different. The girls' trio will sing WHarbor Lightsu.
The beautiful strains had died away when Mr. Sorknes, as presi-
dent of the Fair Board spoke. He talked about the fair and soc-
ial problems class. When he had finishedx the toastmaster said,
nWe're not only having a banquet but regular classes as well.n
H Then there was much laughter, until Mr. Glesne spoke. He,
too, had many things to say about the year's adventures. Mrs.
Zimmerman bade the Argonauts, farewell, for she had decided to go
on another kind of adventure. In her address she said many things
that pleased the Argonautsg but, above all, she wished them much
success in their voyage in quest of the Golden Fleece or high
school d1ploma.' Now, the guests left the beautiful hall to go
back to the Argo. On the way back the Argonauts stopped to see
the show, nI'm from Missourin at the theatre.
The NGolden Fleecen rang in their ears, as the Argonauts re-
turned. The task was most difficulty but now, Jason and his com-
rades were even more resolved to win honor for their names. Soon
they were to have a long rest during the heat of the summerg and
then return to put their hands to the oars again.

All the places that the Argonauts came unto and went past
need not be told. However some experiences are worth relating.
While going through a place known as Chemistry Class they barely
escaped a great explosion. They were making Esters Cor should
we say Esthersl and because one of the Argonauts did not follow
the directions of Mr. Glesne, the first mate, he heated his sol-
ution too strongly and suddenly to his surprise an ester explod-
ed, but our faces stung and we knew it was no joke.
Afterward, for several days no wind blew and Exper-
the sail of the Argo hung slack. But 'the heroes
swore to each other that they would make the ship go as swiftly
as they could. Mightily they labored at the oars and no one
would be first to leave his bookkeeping desk. And then just as
they were in the midst of their Potter Practice Set, spent with
labor, the oar that Herman still pulled at, slipped, and that
slip caused him a ninety-dollar deficit in his bookkeeping bal-
ance. Herman sat there in ill humor and threw up his hands for
he did not know what to do.

filling their sails. And the next day they
Af! il came no a football field, No sooner aid they set

feet upon ground than Jason and his team
went off into the field for the first game of the year. Now the
while they were there,they came upon a strange team heavily clad
and protected with helmets, Although the Argonauts were greeted
with courtesy and hospitality, all the opponents shouted at them
loudly, W We are football players and demand that any team which
comes into this field has to get into a game with us. That's the
law we have laid down. Unless you can stand up against us, you
cannot go back to your ship. If you don't abide by the football
rules something will happen to you.W The Apggnautg

One of them called, Bernard, stepped fgrward and
B81f33,'?We are ready to

Then said Mr. Glesne, the first mate, WWe have come tO the

no one have they told how the passage might
be made. But knowing how badly they defeat-
ed Plainview the week before,1t may be well
for us to play 'heads up' to 1t.'
Whilst on their way back to the Argo, the first mate, Mr.
Glesne, spoke to the team and bade them tell the WT1gers"fSpr1ng
Valleyi of their coming. The team was fearfulg and as Jason and
his comrades were wondering what there was about them that was
to be feared, the First Mate came amongst them and said, nWere
it not that they had Bacon, their snatcher, we would not fear
them. Never did we lstrive to put the ball over the goal line,
but he snatched the ball and swooped down and 'still armed' the
After this fearful encounter with the Spring Valley monsters
no wind blew and the sail of the Argo hung slack. But the heroes
swore to each other that they would make their ship go as swiftly
as if the storm-footed team of Grand Meadow were racing to over-
take her. Mightlly they labored at the oars, and no one would be
first to give up. Then just as the breeze of the evening came up
and just as the rest of the heroes were preparing for the combat
with LeRoy, the oar that Byron pulled at broke.

Now as they were wafted toward LeRoy where the Red and White
ruled, and as Byron was away from them, Mr. Glesne sat in ill
humor. The Argonauts saw that his face was covered with the damp
of fear and that as he stood before them, he was as if blinded
and 1ooked'from one to the other, searching for faces to replace
Byron, who had broken his legg and Robert, who had become seasiokg

to row faster, there came huge men, from the land
of St. Ansgar,clad in the best of armor and ready
to overtake the Argonauts.

i day Game when the captain of the Argo,Mr.Sorknes,
is i gathered the Argonauts about h1m,and he told them
QQ that they would have to stop for a vacation. It
was near Christmas so the Argonauts left the ship
ahguall who were their frlendsg Before they parted, the Captain
spoke to the heroes saying that they needed a rest after re ing
for so long a time,
He said they should not forget the Golden Fleece that they
had sailed to gain. He suggested that they sing
some of the beautiful Christmas carolsgand as they Vacation
sang, their hearts were filled with Joy at the
thought of having been so successfully guided and protected by
God. Then as they left the ship the captain and the teachers bade
all the Argonauts farewell.
Now when they had so-journed for a period of two weeks, they
came back to the Argo. Then they shouted about all the good times
they had had. For several days the Argonauts forgot about the
Fleece of Gold, that they had sailed to Qain. Jason blushed to
think that he had almost let go out of his mind the quest that
had brought him here. Hs heard the clear voice of Mr. Sorknes
as he spoke to the Argonauts. Bravely and wisely he said, 'For-
getfulness and shame will cover your names, if you do not work
hard to pass the tests that lay before you.u
They came near the sea of tests and there they sighted piles
of papers filled with questions. Mightily they rowed and swiftly
passed several until they came to the last pile which was social
problems. It was then that Jason cried out, WOh, what a test! N
HE Argonauts strained at the oars until they bent
like bows in their hands, and then they felt the
sun as it streamed upon them, The ship sprang for-
ward. Surely, they were now on the wide sea of the
second semester. The Argonauts shouted. They saw
the piles behind them and now above Jason's head, the bird of
peaceful days fluttered. And the Argonauts knew that this was a
sign of good sailing.
Then Gail, in a clear voice, spoke to Jason and the heroes.
NSurely some spirit possesses me,u he said, UDespite all I do or
say, it will make me go to Spring Valley.H The Argonauts shouted
farewell to him. A strong breeze blew them onward and Argonauts
sailed on without their comrade.
Now the sailors came upon a place where there was a great
snow storm, and it seemed useless to continue their journey, be-
cause of the denseness of the air. Many of the people who came
to this place became sick with scarlet fever. Jason and all but
three of his worthy friends became frightened: so much so, that
they left the Argo and spread themselves abroad
in the town. WTO the Lockers! To the Lockers! Seniors
we must go. There we will not be seen by those School
who watch us."
When they came back to the Argosthe skippers looked 'Bt each
other and shame came over each of them, for they knew that they
had done wrong. The next day the captain, Mr. Sorknes, went be-
fore them and said, uNow you will have to row later at night or
else you cannot get the Golden Fleece for which you have sailed.
ri ' '
The voyagers knew that there was something in that speech
that might not be gainsaid. They put their hands before their
faces and said no other word. There was only one thing that
brought an end to their shame: hope, hope that they would not be
deprived of their trip to Faribault.
2- IKE the wave that breaks over a ship and gives the
' sailors no rest, the basketball season faced the
A Argonauts. Mr. Glesne began to fashion new plays,
2 and the thoughts of all were turned toward the
coveted basketball trophy at LeRoy.
The first encounter to which the Argonauts came was LeRoy
in their new court. The Argonauts were victorious and since they
overcame them Mr. Glesne said, Ulf we could go down into Spring
Valley and across the Grand Meadow, then surely we can get into
the sea of Albert Lea. But the passage through Grand Meadow is
most perilous and few teams dare even make approach to 1t.'
Said Jason C'Rny, the
captain of the team D,

of the passage are, and

There were hundreds of Argonauts and followers of every
tribe eager to see the outcome of this contest.At the half mark
of the passage the outcome, seemed hopelessg but Jason and his
team resolved that no passage however perilous must stop them.

came out with a 26 to 25 point victory. Trumpets blew and the

day the Argo was wafted against the strong Le Roy

watching their favorite teams. Many had bright shining instru-

the Argonautsg but Jason and his team would not listen to their
threats and again fought a victorious battle.
The great crowd arose as if it had been Adams 34

basketball was given. They went back to the Argo where they
were again honored by the home economics maidens who prepared
a table for them. The First Mate ate with his heroes and no
dread thoughts came before himg for he was a victor.

seas and won so many battles lost this one, but they fixed their
oars and set sail again with the morning breeze.

EFORE the dark of night had left the earth,some
of the Argonauts went from the ship. They gath-
hered together and they came to a path which
led them into a strange country called Waterloo
When they came nigh to this new place,they
Saw mHUY Strange machines and from a dlstence they heard the
voices of many people. Large buildings were filled with cattle,
and now they could hear much howling, as from the hounds of
Hades, all around them. Fearful indeed grew this howling as they
came near.They almost turned to flee. Then Hr. Hatle,their lead-
er, brought them into the'aenSe crowd of people.
The Argonauts scattered,and each one found a place where he
satisfied his own desires. They saw many interesting things. In
the afternoon they gathered again at
hippodrome. Here the saw gladiators, gayly dec- Waterloo

Faster and faster did the men row until they came to fields.
in which corn had been planted and from which sprang golden ears.
Quickly the Argonauts scattered themselves and gathered the gold-
en ears.And when they had done this they brought all they could
carry, back. In the agricultural hold of the Argo, the corn was
arranged in orderly piles and displayed ln a beautiful hall which
was decorated with blue and gold, These colors represented the
blue sky and gold corn. The home economics hold was decorated
in the same colors and here was a display of the best po king
and sewing in the country.
All the men of the land were called in to view Show
these piles of gold which they had raised, They listened to the
speeches of Mr. Rinke from the university. All the ladies Came
to the Argo to learn. the art of cooking as it was demonstrated
by Mrs. Zella Duncan. She showed them new ways of cooking and
gave them new ideas which she had learned,

HOSE Argonauts who were in the agricultural hold
Qeasfus ,.-'- :'2ad
,H gg MH banded together to form the Future Farmers of
E Americag and as the days were dull because they
had had no new adventures, Mr. Hatle announced a
FE D Father-Son banquet for all those who belonged to
their group. At last after great preparation the time arrivode
The group had turned their hold into a feasting hall decorated
with their favorite colors, blue and gold, ' '
- A feast was prepared by Miss Christianson pather-50n
and the girls of the home economics hold. They Banquet
served the men and their sons: and as they passed through the
hall, they heard the sounds of much gayety. After all had feast'
ed, Herman Klapper1ch,who was toastmaster, stood before them and
told the eager fathers of their sons' suceess and the worthwhile
ambitions of the group, He then asked Mr. B. J. Huseby to speak
saying that the captain, Mr, Sorknes, was ill and could not come
to the feast. l A
Now, when Mr, Huseby had finished, Mr. Ulven spoke. Pe told
a story about Mr. Huseby, who went into a Jew's store to buy a
pair of pants. The Jew wanted 35.oog but Huseby also was a Jew
and Jewed him down to .50 and then thought he should have two
pair for that price. g
To settle the laughter Herman played an accordian solo. He
then introduced Mr, Glesne. nThls being an agricultural banquet
we should hold it such,u he said. wgne day I overheard a conver-
sation between Leonard Vogt and Frederick Bolton, Leonard asked
Frederick if he had planted an5,sueumbebs in his garden.
Frederick said he hadn't because the directions said cucumbers
should be planted on hills and his garden was perfectly level.
When the warm breeze of spring came, the Argonauts anchored
and Mr. Hatle and his group went forth upon the ground. Here
they went into barns and pastures where they saw cattle and foul
of the earth. With the knowledge they had gathered, they judged
the cattle according to their fitness and quality. They went
from farm to farm even unto late evening, judging to acquire a
standard so great that they might enter a contest.

Many days were spent in this work until these Argonauts
knew well the best cattle and foul. Then the Argonauts, were
grouped into teams which went to the state Judging contest. When
Mr. Hatle began picking his teams, he called upon the boys to
find out how much each knew and who would be best to carry out
the task. And then he called upon Raphael King and asked him to
Compare two kinds of beef cattle. Raphael stood up and said,
"OHS beef animal has deeper hams than the other."
Before they went, Mr. Hatle said, UBut the judging that I
would have you do is hard for a great hero, even. Know that at
the university farm, yonder, there are many well-bred animals
that you must judge. If you cannot accomplish what I want you
to accomplish, you will have to come back from the city empty
handedg for it is not right that a good Judging team Cannot
show itself with honor.
Whilst the Judging Argonauts were out among cattle, the
rest of the agriculture Argonauts had regular
sessions called Future Farmers of America. At Farmers
these meetings they decided a course they were to
use, for a successful year. And after they met, they had lunch

Many of the Ar-gonauts who had come on this ' long voyage
formed a group known as the 4H club. These youths were under
the guidance of Mrs. Wallace Johnson and Mr. Noel Hatle. They
did many wonderful things, and a record of great dead was left
by them. This group was called the nAdams Full O'PepU club. One
tour was taken, to Wildwood Park where they enjoyed a picnic, and
an ice cream social was sponsored by them later in the season.
- Two members of the group who exceptionally successful were
awarded trips to the university farm. Richard Johnson and
Virginia Bonnallie spent one joyful week there and then returned
to the Argo.
When they came nigh to the Mower County Fair, they erected
a booth which won fourth place. Most of the members received re-
cognition here, so much so that two of them, Lorraine Meyers and
Robert Flnbraaten, were sent to the Junior Livestock Show at
South Saint Paul, because they had prize-winning beef.
The Argonauts again set sail, but suddenly they saw before
them a sign, UDetour Ahead.N The Argonauts rested in the waters
to await their pass. In order that some of the delegates of the
4H club might go to the 4H week, at the university farm, the
members held a festival in the great gym of the ship. From the
bordering lands many people came to the Argo.
When they arrived, Vincent Bolton gave them and
a welcome address.And then there was much enter-
tainment consisting of a vocal duet by Lorraine AMeyers and
Donls Osmundson.There was also a tap dance by Elnathan Anderson,
a piano solo by Mary Terese Meurer. And then came the play

brought unto her their personal
troubles and cares. These they
placed in a box, and every day
the questions on their problems
of dress and manners were taken
out and studied until the girls
were lovely maidens.
All strove to surpass the
others in their work. Miss
Christiansen taught them to see
and feel the quality of mater-
ial before they bought it and
trained their hands to sew gar-
'ments, lovely as flowers,
They also learned to mend the boys' suits which had been torn
after hard games in other lands.
Ons day while the'students were-adwiring a mevia-sthr one
young girl said, nGh tell us,N1ss Christiansen, how we can
make ourselves as beautiful as she.H
Then said Miss Christiansen, HThis movie star is lovely
to look upon because she has lovely apparel and all the means
of keeping herself beaut1fu1.Her skin remains fair, her fhair
keeps its gold, and her lips are ever red and her eyesf shin-
ing because the means which she has of keeping lovely are in
jars of creams and powders and soaps.H And so they studied ab-
out the washes and the creams and in a little while they knew
the ways of making themselves as lovely as the movie star.
Not only did they study about beauty in clothing and ap-
pearance but in household tasks as well. One day when they
were talking about wash1ng,M1ss Christian- I

jg ND now the Argonauts were no longer on the ship
1 ff Q2 that was being dashed on by the sea and beaten
5 QQ upon by the winds. Easter vacation was a change
Q' figim that was welcome to the wearied voyagers. ' They
went home again.There they stayed several days,
thinking each day a fresh adventure. The ship and the voyage
they had been on now seemed far away to them. The quest of the
Golden Fleece seemed to them a story they had heard and thought
of,but that they could never think on again with so much fervorJ
It was not long after Easter vacation that Jason and the
other youths who had won many victories were taken into the
feasting hall. They marveled at the beauty and magnificence of
the banquet. On the walls were bright streamersg the tables were
long and decorated with shiny strips of purple and gold. In the
center was a trophy which had been won by Jason and his men, and
at both ends of the table were lovely vases filled with flowers
of different colors.
The guests were already assembledg- Jason and his team were
royally honored, When they looked at all the lovely things in
the hall and all the friendly faces about them, they felt that
they were far away from the daily routine of school.
A delicious meal was served at the tables. They brought be-
fore themg pork and beef roast, mashed potatoes, gravy, buttered
peas and carrots, banana salad, celery, pickles,
rolls, coffee, milk, ice cream and wafers, While Athletic
Jason and the guests ate heartily a group of
musicians played pep songs and marches for them.

Something in this last speech drew Jason's attention more
than anything else. Mr. Huseby said that above all athletics,
the voyage and fight for the QGolden Fleece or diploma came
first. All were delighted at that speech. V
Then Jason spoke of his experiences with the centaur, and
he told them he would get the Golden Fleece in the auditorium.
He finished speaking and all in the hall shouted out, UThe
Golden Fleece, the Golden Fleece.u

was placed over other

to a strange land, Chat-

ed by Mr. Stegemang the mixed chorus by Miss Jones, and the jun-
ior high chorus by Miss Sanders.
One day Mr. Btegeman said that the band of trumpeters was to
give a benefit concert at the Adams High School auditorium. And
the proceeds of the concert were to be used for uniforms for the
members. He said, WWe will do what no one else has ever done be-
fore, we will do what no one else ever thought of doing, We will
go down into the auditorium and give this great concert."
When the trumpeters came that evening, they played upon their
instruments as they had never played before, They proceeded, they
played such selections as the 'Merry Swiss Boy," "The Golden
Bears," and "Little Gypsy."
They played the deepest tones and sweetest melodies. All
would play the"Sp1rit of the Sioux" and "The Fighting Irish." And
in this great band of trumpetelvs there were forty
enthusiastic members. On and on through the days
the mihstrels went. And as they went, the members Lygmf
of the mixed chorus were filled with the Christ- .
mas spirit. Whilst they worked on the Christmas
contata their hearts were filled with the "Music N
of Bethlehem.n They went to the auditorium and 1
stood before the watchers. When Miss Jones 'bogan -iii iagyezy
to direct they were filled with ,joy and the chorus sang, "Ring On

Gosha. With baritone voice he sang, WA King Shall Re1gn.N Four
minstrels then came forth, Arlene Otto, Margaret Duggan, Herman

And the young Argonauts were also filled with the christmas
spirit. All became dark in the hall. The great pageant was being
presented. Before them the watchers could see shepherds: eight

As they went along, the trumpeters played upon their instru-
ments regularly. With their hand and their heads they showed that
they were inspired to practice long and hard for a great concert
to be given on one of the beautiful days in May.
They came at last to the auditorium and the spectators heard
soft music. It grew louder and louder. Before them they saw many
members in new uniforms of purple and gold and shining instru-
ments strapped to them.

.uas.-ggwhwb HEN Jason's comrades, the Juniors, who had prac-
ticed long put forth a play, "Young Barry." It
t was at this time that the Argo was anchored and
tgwa the juniors could call upon the people of the
land toicome, listen, and see them.
Young Eddie Barry, Raymond Finkelson, returned G from a
strange land, New York, where he was a radio singer, Mrs. Barry,
Virginia Beckf Mr. Barry, his Dad, Virgil Bergenegand his sister
Beatrice, Eris Heimerg left the place where they lived to go to
the station to meet the youth. Instead of coming by rail, he
motored to his folks' dwelling place.
Throngs of people were waiting for Eddie, but the youth re-
fused to see them. How glad his comrades would have been if they
could have had sight of him theni Sheriff Sibley, Paul Larson
and the camera man, Vince, Eugene Knutson, arriv-
ed from the adjoining land to take pictures of Class
the great star. D
NEddle1 Oh Eddielu cried Ann, Thelma Kallandg WI have heard
somethlng.H Eddie turned and looked at her with a face that was
blushed and confused, He was afraid she would know the, truth,
know that he was not the singer Barry whom they thought.
Then she said, HEdd1e you have another g1rl,a society girl,
Gale, Kathleen Johnsong who is playing against me for Eddie.H
At last he could stand it no longer' and confided to his
Uncle George, Bernard Canney, his trouble with Ann and his fail-
ure as a singer.
George who was engaged to Mable Warren, Virginia Bonnallie,
knew something about these love affairs and thus could help pat-
ch the trouble.
Two young and fair youths Sally Davidson, Dixie Elliot, and
Tommy Granville, Byron Husevyg said, UWhat's the matter with you
Eddie, why do you sit there so sad?N And thus they tried tc cheer
But there were yet two who were making things hard for the
youth. They were clubwomen, active members in civic work who
made things unpleasant by flinging out,he was not the real star,
They were Miss Dalrymple, Marcella Petersong and Mrs. Granville,
Then the youth told his story, things were made r1ght,Edd1e
in the end became the singer in place of the other Eddie Barry
who was quitting, and Uncle George became more bent on having
Mable Warren as his wife.

All the Argonauts were divided into two groups. One gr0UP
consisted of the grade Argonauts up to the seventh grade. Then
the junior and senior high school students formed
the second group.
After the first mate took roll call, all the Figigal
Argonauts left the Argo for a day's fun upon the F1333

answered the captain. NStudents, it may' be true that you are
ready to summon the Golden Fleece, but I shall put you on 'trial
and then I shall give you the Golden Fleece, to bear with you.
The trials I would make of you are three. I would have you
accomplish these in one week and they are: First, you must come
on Sunday evening and witness the Baccleaurate ceremony. Second-H
ly, follows the greatest of all the tr1als,the final examinations.
For this you shall have three days. And the third is to come
Thursday evening at which time you must capture the Golden Fleece.

When darkness came upon the earth,Jason and all his comrades
filed into the auditorium. After some musical selections, Rev.
Breivlk stood before the heroes and all those present and Spoke
about the future trials of Jason and his comrades, He wished
them much success in their future undertakings. And when - the
exercises were over,the captain bade them go and make ready for
the second trial because it was this trial which would determine
their winning of the Golden Fleece.
When several other musical selections were Exercises
given by the Junior High Chorus and the Girls'
Octette,the seniors and all the people left the auditorium.
Jason and his classmates had only three days left.
Jason said, NI will dare this trial, I will face this doom.
I have come far, and there is nothing else that I can do.P
That night they lay upon the land and rested themselves for
the task of the morrow, When dawn came, they once more went
aboard the Argo. NToday, said Jason,Uwe shall see the'beginning
of tests and by Tuesday we shall be ln the midst of them.N His
voice was also filled with hope as he sald,WSoon, 0 voyagers, we
shall be back in the city from whence we came to gain the Golden
The Argo went on and the tests came.Never was there silence
as there was on those days. To the heroes upon the Argo lt seenr
ed as if black chaos had come over the world again. They knew
not whether they were dolnc English or social problems. During
these blackened hours no hope pierced their minds, no beam of
light came upon the test.
After' these GWB that seemed many days, the dawn came In
the light they saw graduation with its beauty, its glory, and
its pomp. They hailed each other as inf they had met ,gffjer a
long parting. They raised the mast and unfurled the sails.
But sorrow was yet to fill their hearts.As they stood upon
the ship looking toward their homes,the sorrow of parting from
each other and the Argo came over all of them. For long they
stood there in utter numbness.
Then said Jason, "Although we cannotreturn to the Argo, we
have landed successfully over the voyage.,There are other har-
bors and other cities that we may go into. And all the places
that we go to we will be honored for we have gone through tolls
and dangers, and we have brought to us the famous Fleece of
Gold! " F r,
And then their spirits
came back again to all the ""
heroes-but not to the teach- Ag,

Florence Brewer, the salutatorian, welcomed them and gave
great honor to the heroes who had faced such labors and great
dangers to win the Golden Fleece. ,
And when she had finished, Mr. Theodore Utne from the State
Department of Education in St. Paul stepped forward. He told
them of the dangers yet to be encountered. Chances for going on
further to school are even more difficult now. He sa1d,'Ton1ght
you commence. It is the last time that you will sit together as
a class. In but a short time your parting will begin.n
This the seniors heard. For one moment it seemed silent,

way to enjoyment. Then the, valedlctorian,
