Eleven years ago, We trotted off to schoolg Warned by our mothers, Not to break a rule. We were gradually progressing, As we all grew olderg An advancement to another grade, Would make us grow bolder. Yes, we made those eight years, And were glad of it, too. Here we were Freshmen. How could it be true? Initiation Day Was the first thrilling sight, And we ended all that with a party at nite. We took the blue ribbon With our one-act play, We just did it up In our own little way.

Mr. Abbot was portrayed by Donald Larson, and Jean Ross took the part of Mrs. Abbot. The Abbots have three daughters: Dorothy, Cordelia Whitney: Eloise, Shirley Moewsg and Jacqueline, Lorraine Meyers the tomboy.. Mr. Abbot had always wished for a son, and, as a result, is determined to make his youngest daughter, UJackie,n as much of a tomboy as possible. JacKie's favorite pal is Larry, David Schneider, who is a lad of seventeen, and is very far from being a sissy. Larry is the son of Mr. Abbot's law oartner. Jaccueline's oldest sister, Dorothy, is engaged to Ernest, John Nagel, a young, dignified doctor, who bo- comes the victim of one of the tomboy's oranks. Leo Wilson took the part of nAlfred,u a young banker, who is extremely well-dressed.

Before the wedding, Mrs. Hawkins, Florence Gerber, and Mrs. Simpson, Edythe Stern, arrive at the scene. Mrs. Hawkins, who is Mrs. Abbot's sister, is very old- fashloned and a decided pessimist. Mrs. Simpson is the dressmaker. Jacqueline and Mr. Abbot return from the golf matches, Jackie when all of a sudden a news photograph- er, Lorls Larson, bursts into the room to take some shots of the nChamp.u Mrs. Abbot thinks he intends to take some shots of the brides-to-be, but soon finds out that this is not the case. Next, Alfred, who is attending a banquet, takes ill, and Mrs. Abbot, who has been under a strain, suddenly feels 111 also. On top of all this, three people--a radio representative, Herman Winkelg a golf goods salesman, Raymond Hagen, and a cosmetics repre- sentative, Luverne Johnson, burst into the room and de- mand that the uChampU sign a contract with them. Mrs. Abbot soon chases them out of the house. The wedding finally takes place, and the two cou- ples are happily married. But wait! Something new develops, when in the last act, Jacqueline falls in love with Larry, thus ending the play. John Nagel xv- . B .

We entered the assembly, went to class, Returned again, and were told to pass. On October 2, The seniors held sway, Fun for them, woe for us, Was the plan of the day. Soon after we started, Two left our class. Then entered the Swansons, And Ted Whipple at last. We needed reporters To tell of our classesg So we chose Pat and Barbara Two capable lasses. We're restless and noisy In English 'tis true. We study too hard, For we've much work to do. Wefe a boistrous bunch, But not hard to control. We'1l abide by the rule, And someday reach our goal.

The following have either been in the band sometime in the nast yearg or they are working tediously trying to galn a cherished soot, ore- viously held by someone else: ' John Sjobakken Joyce Anderson Neal Slindee Ruth Hamilton Luverne Johnson Florence Gerber Lorraine Meyers Marion Smith Donis Osmundson Frederick Bolton Dorothy Torgerson Cornets John Nagel James Bergene Roger Beck Raymond Olson Gloria Ehlo Clarinets Delores Lewison Ramona Anderson Barbara Schneider Idore Lewlson LeDonna Johnson Beatrice Merton Drums Arvella Johnson Kathleen Lewison Saxo hones Donna Le asseur Norman Olson Robert Freid Bernard Hukee Beverly Ehlo Wayne Stern Ruth Stern Harold Wiste Owen Anderson Donna Fischer Patsy Wollweber Ruth Walker Barbara Klaoperick Lorraine LeVasseur Mary Therese Meurer Flute Patricia Erckenbrack -Baritones Wilma Hardecopf Ward Bergene Ruth Berg Altos Edythe Stern Joyce Boyum Trombones Cordelia Whitney Ruth Larson - Eugene Stern Basses Donald Larson Eugene Finkleson Evelyn Hass ,The above list shows that our director, Mr. Steze- man, has had the very nerve-wrecking Job of to ching forty-seven students.

Very few of our band members are graduating this year, so we look forward to a better band next year than before. - L Pa 1: Erckenbrackl ' ZAI 2 , Z s. rs.. tx 3 -X, '-2: "fl 1 X.

The chapter has twenty- flve members this year and fifteen of them are new members. The F.F.A. is a nation wide organization but this year, because of the war, there will just be local ac- tivities. Because of this, the local chapter is plann ing on doing more. Every year the F.F,A. sets up the objectives and the goals they plan to accomolish, and thereby have a olanned program to follow throughout the year. They are going to test milk, and by doing this they can tell vrlcn cows have to be fed more in order to produce more butterfat. They are testing about two hundred and fifty cows a month, which requires a lot of time. They are also testing sows and ear marking them,so they can keep the best pigs to produce stronger and larger litters. The parents are co-operating lOO5, in letting the boys do this. The club has a seed trertor and will treat the grain. Because of gas rrtioning the meetings are held during school hours, insterd of at night. There is not enough time for entertainment this wry so some of the meetings will be held in the evening.

However, we are glad and proud to say that such is not the case. Of course the most obvious contribution to the war effort has been the purchase of stamps. At the present rate of sales, approximately S900 worth of stamps will have been bought by children during this year. This is a notable achievement, but I wonder if it is the biggest and most important, We have done much in other fields too. . For instance, through the agriculture 6cH-rtmcnt. Mr. Smith conducts Rural War production Training classes which are not only for the boys, but for adults as wells He conducts these classes both, here in Adams and .also at Johnsburg. In the agriculture classes, the boys also practice, Food Production by doing farm practice work and Junior cow and sow testing. The F. F.A. boys had a paper collection, through, which they collected three thousand pounds of paper. The 4-H Club also has pledged to give its best efforts to each 4-H Victory project. It was the pupils of this school who campaigned the community for the scrap drive last fall. Many of them worked'hard and I'm sure it proved successful. Now let's see what the girls are doing. They oere talnly can't be sitting idle. We'1l travel up to the home economics department and visit Miss Christiansen, and find out. QF FF QF QF Q? QF F CPE- If S, 15. E: ' S. R X X.

In her classes we find she teaches nu- trition food, preparation, 'hone projects, clothing, budgets, sewing and mending. Physical education classes for the girls are being taught by Miss Christiansen So, we will agree that the g1rls,too,are playing 'their part. Mathematics and science are important studies to the carrying on of a successful war. This is shown in all induction centers where men who are trained along these lines are called. Pre-induction courses are of- fered in the high schools as it has been shown that the inductees are locking the fundamental knowledge of these important subjects. The courses from now on will be built around these studies. Then, too, where special programs are offered, science and mathematics are a prerequisite. Uncle Sam needs typists,bookke+pers, end stenog- raphers, end our high school offers f complete commer- cial program to train students to fill these positions. Physicrl education and etheletics fre rlso stress- cd more new than ever before. Too many men enter the service whose bodies are not developed physic'lly. Physicfl educftion, through the classes offered in our school, helps develvp strong bodies. And etheletics help develop quick thinking, which is needed much when the going gets tough in the thick of the fight. Ath- eletics and physicrl education go hand in hand, and it is hoped thet the boys crn be helped in high schoelg so that,when they enter into the service of their country, less time will be needed to build up their bodies and mind to the point where they can be most useful in com- bat or to their country. Ramona Anderson 'S , t 1, 1 - , - ef? esesesssssssse X Sadie Hawkins Day Sadie Hawkins day originated in Dog Patch in the early eighteen hundreds. On this day all the belles of the town ran after their favorite beau. To bring it nearer to our home, it was observed by the .stu- dents of Adams High School. To make the day more interesting, Daisy Mae and Lil' Abner were chosen from the student body. A week before the final contest candidates were chosen. Those chosen for Daisy Mae were: Lorraine Meyers, Lorraine Levasseur, and Elsie Wood. The can- didates chosen for Lil' Abner were: Archie Hanson, Willard Anderson, and Frederick Bolton. Out of these, Lorraine Meyers and Archie Hanson received the largest number of votes, and were therefore given the title of Daisy Mae and Lil' Abner. To further the excitement of the dey, each girl asked a boy ,to e party which was held at night. A series of games were played, followed by a lunch served by the Cheerleaders.

Party, at the Stegedoor Canteen, in New York City. As we enter the canteen we are met by the tingling music of Fritz Bolton'snL1cKety Splitsu playing nJungle Rhythm.nThey are on tour from Hollywood. If you haven't noticed it before, that throbbing rhythm is due largely to George Ulrich's expert nsendingn on the bull fiddlE,f' We are now met by our charming hostess, Hazel Bell who leads us to the ugrubu line. There we renew our acquaintance with our old c1essmatg,Marion Smith while she is spearing doughnuts. She is the assistant hostess. She bashfully takes us into her confidence and tells us that tonight she intends to announce her engagement to a Marine. As we grab a uhot dog,u we hear a most delightful Latin voice comming from the direction of the stage. We are pleasantly surprised to find Carmen Lopez as the owner of the voice. She was better known to us as Edna Segobia during school days. She is currently starring with the uL1ckety Splits.u We are nearly bowled off our feet as we see a Naval officier, a Marine,and an Army officier come in srm-in- arm. We.recover slightly when we discover their .true identities. The Navy is represented by Petty Officeir, Willard Andersong the Marine is Sgt. Harold Mnndler,nnd Major Wilfred Thome is the soldier. Harold thas just returned from the Far Eastern war as witnessed by his slight limp. Jillard was in Q Nsvil bfttle nenr the island of Honshu,Jnpnn, and Major Tnome is an instructor in a tank school in Georgia. A big, burly Military Police officier has followed , this queer trio in. He suspects trouble abrew with a" combination like tnnt.He is our old friend Donold Bissen His face becomes wre thed in smiles as he shakes hands with everyone and then returns to his best with a sure promise to return later when off duty.

Two'Angels of Mereyuput in their aneearsnce,dressed in their starched white uniforms. They are Lt. Lorraine Levasseur and Lt. Dorothy Winkels. They are both army nurses. Dorothy is with a hospital in Oklahoma, and 'Shortyn was attached to the Provisional Base Hnspital during the invasion of Italy, We spy First Class Seaman Maurice Severson of the Coast Guard, as he stops at the candy counter for a package of gun and a candy bar, We learn from him that his outfit has been patrolling the Eastern seaboard. He is on leave and intends to start for home tomorrow. Sgt. Wilma Hardeeopf of the WAACS has entered the :tom and is greeting everyone with a smile and a warm greeting. She is a typlst in the WAAC office in Kansas City. She had been previously teaehiny school near Rochester, Minnesota. The room suddenly becomes hushed as Col. Archie Hanson of the U.S. Army Air Force enters. He is well known to the entire nation, now, as the pilot who Fei the second raid on Japan. He was personally crefited with blowing up the Mitisukii Arms olant. Everyone in the eante n is Friftiny towari the stage room where famous Hollywood stars are about to present a new drama. As we Scan the sheet of characters, we discover that the leaiinp stars are our classmates, too, Shirley Mae Oliver, the leaflng lafy, was known to us as Shirley Tolsteadg ani Dean Ruth, the leading man, is our pal Bob Hanson. Bob has become the screen's most famous lover since the days of Clark Gable and Tyrone. Power.We'll see him in action tonight. The play tonight will be, uLove By Moonlight,N written ani directed by Norieen Snortum, the New York playwright and producer. The play is about to begin so we move with the rest of the wroup into the theater. We join in wishing the graduating classes of the future all the health and prosperity that we have enjoyed.
