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.

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.

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.
