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.

were cut and brought down to Adams to build the
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.

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.
