NO MORE KIDS 'b DRIVE Us NERT5 I F O R E W A R D 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.

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 Senior on her child, the mother stepped forward and said, Class History " 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- lllty. fr d Us g , 1 I m 1 3 l K.

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 ix the fundamentals that they ' j might enter as great heroes 9 K were taught in separate holds.

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 Guinney. 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 of 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. 94. 1' ss A 'N K N sm sa qw w xi L jf .,-?- J ,gy hh g Al 6 V, -,t .ng V f 1 ,, U as J.

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 schoo1?N Jason smiled, UHow fool- 1 C: ish it seemed that she could , rv , .f'aw,,F help him in his difficultyln s gQf Q fri , s , She came near him and took f an - ,a, ,M QQ fi WWW him by the hand, as the cen- Sffsstfe? 1 'fgf7 ,Q 11 " J I J asf, taur had a n 1 u ar b - ' o e e gh ye s e 2 xv,,s xYfAaN !55gg fore, and showed him where to A y df ? so.

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.

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 Banquet 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 1 2 .41 1 'T -- G X ,Q L 'X ' if J lk wx 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. lh. f fl H. :?,7L-5 I 4ggg!Wirf,?5E:.J"ilf fb- izjrfi , HE school board sent out through the whole district First there came tventv one now composing the Ps V ij a message of the voyage and naked' for lolunteers.

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.

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 Foot- were not dismayed at the words of their opponents' ball ' 1939 One of them called, Bernard, stepped fgrward and B81f33,'?We are ready to obey the rules that you have U laid down Willingly do we take up your challenge,and play a game with you.W Then said Mr. Glesne, the first mate, WWe have come tO the place where there are Q 7 I at sf' .g., t ' if t, 1 l -v ' 111 .5 girls- L' gif- ,- J!gQ,ww4N',ndiL many gritters fixed as rock that will dash against us unless we find a pass wh1ch'11 bring us to that goal line.

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 players.U 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.

All the Argonauts now boarded the Argo to take sail into the sea of basketball. But when they came to the ship, Mr. Glesne, the First Mate, told them they would have to go abroad without their shlpmate, Lloyd Anderson. And as they traveled on, they heard a sound coming from the distance UCheer1o my Dearlon. They stole softly off to find a huge crowd gathered in a great hall.

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 Christmas some of the beautiful Christmas carolsgand as they Vacation Brings Joy 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 'wi 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 A 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 Skipped 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 I E 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.'

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. When the feast was finished, sail was set into the sea of Albert Lea. They brought their ship near to the giants of Free- born. Here they were welcomed by a manager who had heard of the voyagers and their quest. They stayed and worked hard for vict- ory, but a loss was to befall them. As they played they were overpowered by the Freeborn Giants. They who had braved so many seas and won so many battles lost this one, but they fixed their oars and set sail again with the morning breeze. 1:25, gs l gf: 'f J 5' .V "Xxx fri! fgil A , mari ft , 12 51 VN. ad.. 1, ee.. -.wr t 4415- . .ayggi " 1 . , Q QQ- g,9- or - .. ---sa r' 1-' - -, 1 Y r sf. jf T , V iff' -- 7 ' -l ' , --., , .

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 the vast Trip to hippodrome.

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. Aa'-2.2 .5 w JU'i'1: ii . agwegll "" 3 ig , ' af' " 5 4 K uv " L ' I ,, ' fx,-sf-5.-Z b mp LVL W 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 Future sessions called Future Farmers of America. At Farmers Association these meetings they decided a course they were to use, for a successful year. And after they met, they had lunch Raphael King, who was their chief chef, was the best hand at preparing lunches. The Argonauts decided that one of their members should rope resent them is the State Future Farmer Band for the fall pf 1940 Paul Larson was chosen, so next fall he will tfavel SeDaP6te1Y from the Argonauts into the place called Kansas City Missouri. In order that, he might do this the other-Araonauts pruned and sprayed trees. 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. 4H Play When they arrived, Vincent Bolton gave them and Program 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.

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.

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 Hanquet Jason and the guests ate heartily a group of musicians played pep songs and marches for them.

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 The program was closed with a peppy number by the Girls' Octette which gave the Argonauts new encouragement on their voyage.

A11 1 E 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 0 Song.u Of all these minstrels none was so famous as Vernon Gosha. With baritone voice he sang, WA King Shall Re1gn.N Four minstrels then came forth, Arlene Otto, Margaret Duggan, Herman K1apper1ck,and Vernon Goshag uThe Snug offHopeN filled-the room.

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.

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- Junior ed from the adjoining land to take pictures of Class Play 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 him. 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, Neva Quale. 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. ! 7, , r .

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 land.

Second-H ly, follows the greatest of all the tr1als,the final examinations. For this you shall have three days.

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. s Baccleaurate When several other musical selections were Exercises May 26 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 Fleece,u A 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!

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, until music by the Junior High Chorus and the Girls' Octette gave way to enjoyment. Then the, valedlctorian, Graduation Celestine Vogt, stood before them. no fr1ends,' Eierogges ay she cried, 'the quest on which we dared the gulfs of four years of study is accomplished.
