A hundred boys and girls and more, Their Freshmen lessons learning, With eager hearts and wondrous lore, But for gay parties yearning, In nineteen hundred twenty. Then a class of Sophomores they Do a vast knowledge assumeg More than for their good, teachers say, While the Freshmen meet their doom ln nineteen twenty-one. Junior boys and girls so gay Combating with Seniors stern. With basketball they often play While fewer lessons they try to learn ln nineteen twenty-two. As Seniors grave they now are known, Their heads all filled with knowledge. Each Freshman looks of wonder bestows On their plans to go to college, Int nineteen twenty-two. When future years come and go, And their classmates they often pass, A fleeting memory will show Their intense loyalty to the class Of nineteen twenty-three. B.

Delora Allis l923 AI-I LA HA SA 1923 Senior Class History It was a sunshiny September clay way back in 1919 that the wonderful class of '23 tremulously entered Albert Lea High. Their infant eyes gazed with awe upon all the other classes, especially the one in which manhood and woman- hood had been attained. Young minds wondered if it would be possible ever to walk and talk as the others did. On and on they labored, struggling to master and learn. So persistent were their efforts that attention was natur- ally drawn to them. It is always noticeable that clever infants cause a great deal of commotion. They came second in the annual candy sale and first in the Stunt Night program, under the leadership of one Helen Paulson, president. At the end of that eventful year, the infant class stepped into childhood. Yes, the green hue slipped away, but there was no regret for mis- takes, only eagerness to use the new knowledge. The period of childhood passed swiftly, as it always does. George Mc- Cornack, acting as president, led the class onward. Great pleasure was taken in all the new accomplishments and interests. As a rule, childhood doesn't accomplish a great deal, so this stage demurely passed without ex- citing unusual notice. Nevertheless, the honc-r of coming second in the candy sale again was worthy of mention. The class party in the fall, and the picnic in the spring will always play a part in childhood reminiscences. Youth! What a delightful word it is! It spells a glorious period of this class! The haze overshadowing infancy and childhood was lifting to let in the sunlight of knowledge. "Knowledge is power," so success gleamed and beckoned, luring youth onward. The crown was neared in declamatory, where George lVlclVlillen, class president, carried off the blue ribbon, and lone Spencer, the red. The Junior-Senior banquet proved a great success, owing to Youth's ingenuity. The timely, beautiful decorations added charm to the dainty meal and enjoyable entertainment. Youth and manhood min- gled in good fellowship after a period of hot rivalry and wholesome compe- titlon. At last! Manhood and its crowning glory! The sensation was new and thrilling. Toys were all put away forever or else willed to the younger set. To replace old amusements, deep thought and brave deeds asserted themselves. Manly labor produced glorious and supreme success. The first party of the year proved to be the best that this body has ever enjoyed. Nothing slow or monotonous had any place there. The interclass basketball championship was carried off with honors. The two plays given before Christmas showed manhood's ability. Then again, victory came forward in the candy sale after three periods of "second best." Yes, indeed, manhood is the most glorious stage of all! Then it is that effort brings success and victory. RUTH E. LARSON.

ALICE LARSON, The Senior Class Prophecy l940 The hot August sun beat down on the city of Manchester, Minn., as the 4:30 train came puffing into the station. Amid the crowd that alighted, one stopped and looked around bewildered. She turned back and asked the conductor, mls this Manchester?" and receiving the answer, "Yes, Madam," she went into the depot. A tall fat man was coming out of the depot, how familiar his face looked! She racked her brain to think who it was. As he came closer, she suddenly thought who it might be. Stopping him, she cried, "Are you Helmuth Anderson?" "Yes! Why, are you Evelyn Thykeson?" he answered astonished. Not until she had exchanged greetings with him, did she notice a woman that had come up beside Helmuth. "Meet my wife," said Helmuth. "Why, Resa Young," exclaimed Evelyn. "For the goodness sakes! l am so glad to see both of you. Let's go some place where we can talk. l want to know what you are doing and where you have been. Tell me about the rest of our classg l haven't heard from anyone for ages. As you know, l went to Africa in l926 as a missionary, l was lost for three years in the jungles. l have thought of you all so often and am curious to know about everybody," said Evelyn as she took from her bag the Annual of '23. "Oh, l am so proud of Helmuthf' piped up Resa. l-le is manager of the Manchester Creamery and makes the best butter in the state. Today, we just came from a trip to Armstrong, where we have been visiting Elmer Soren- 33 . I923 AH LA HA SA 1923 son, who is running his father's grocery store. He married a Spanish dancer, so that he might improve in his Spanish. They built a beautiful Spanish home and consequently spend most of their time in the patio. "All the four hundred are rushing Thalman Fretheim, the noted beauty specialist. Thalman, several years ago, while hunting ducks, fell in Mud Lake. It was there that he made the marvelous discovery of a new facial mud. i'Anna Nelson and Claire Gleason, who go by the names of Misses Mutt and Jeff, are tight-rope walkers in the Peterson Circus. The business staff of the circus consists of Edith Peterson, owner, Norris Peterson, business manager, and William Peterson, zoo king. lt's fine, we saw them just a short time ago," said Resa. "Where is Alice Lrason and what is she doing?" asked Evelyn eagerly. i'Alice Larson is a well-known actress, famous for her violin playing, beautiful voice, and characteristic giggle. When Welmon Niles gets blue Washing dishes, he tunes in on Number 9 to listen to Alice giggle on the radio. "Vernon Bjoro is an up and coming salesman for the 'iManchester Weeklyg" he is a piano tuner also. He has been going with Alice since 1927, we don't know what has happened to Vernie's nerve," said Helmuth. "And where is Anne Sutton?', Resa beamed with pride, "Anne Sutton, or rather Anne McMillen, is President of the United States." i'What!" exclaimed Evelyn. "Yes, she married George McMillen. The Women's Club put up Anne, last election, on the Republican ticket. Strange as it may seem, George was put up as the Democratic candidate. It was either Scottish George or lrish Anne. Anne won the race. As she is very busy running the nation's affairs, George is running the household and tending to sc-cial functions, such as afternoon teas and the like. l-le is making his fortune by running his picture in an advertisement for the Marcelle Wave Company." ul-lereis Douglas Nelson's picture,' said l-lelmuth. "Our football hero is teaching penmanship to the Africans in Alaska. I-le is divided between melting and freezing." "Oh! How did Harold Stenseth's trip tc- Mars succeed?" asked Evelyn. 'iwhy he was caught on the North Star, and last week we received a radio from him, asking for military assistance to pull him off. So Emyline Jenson has taken it upon herself to 'rescue the perishingf She left yesterday for the North Star on her Kiddie Kar." "Oh! How brave she is! ' cried Evelyn. "You remember the jefferson Cafe? It has been run out of business by the Koch 'em Young' Cafe, which is owned by Maude Koch and Muriel Young. Their specialty is spring chickens which are furnished by Leonard Sipple who raises and deals in chickens. "Leslie I-loium, who has for the past few years been in Switzerland hu-nting for cheeses, ran out of cigarettes, and he is now in the Sahara seeking 'Camelsf' ul-la! Ha! l-lal, laughed l-lelmuih as they came to Garland Morten- sen's picture. UGar advertised for a beautiful, model wife. When he re- ceived the answer, he 'dolled up' to go to the station to meet her. Ha! Ha! When he go-t there he met her all right! Guess who it was? Maude Morri- son! They are the happiest couple in Freeborn County excepting Resa and myself." "Lenore Salthun and Ruth Larson were to be married and have a double 3,4 l r I923 AH LA HA SA 1923 wedding in the summer of l928. The two girls started in a perpetual motion car, to the Cities, to do their shopping, but much to their sorrow, their fiances are married to other women because their car is still going. "Ruth Babcock and Mabel Bagaason are selling imported snow balls and popcorn balls in the tropic of Capricorn. "lVlrs. Paul Fentress, formerly Miss Alyda Overgaard, is suing her hus- band for divorce because she can not eat his cooking. Alice Olson is his lawyer, and lnez Nelson, her lawyer. It has been a long hard fight and a case in which the lawyers are able to show their genius." "Are there any more members of our class at the White House?" ques- tioned Evelyn of Helmuth. "Yes, Ruth Hanson is private social secretary for the Presidents hus- band. Ruth attends all the pink teas." "Here's Lowell Stivers picture, he is head milliner at Skinner and Cham- berlain's store. He has the best millinery department in Southern Minnesota. "At last Henry Ford has a competitor in Helen Sorenson, who has con- cocted a six-passenger, two-wheeled motor car, which runs fifty miles on one pint of salted peanuts. The reason Helen invented this kind of machine was so that Walborg Wayne would have a greater demand for peanuts from her factory." h "Oh! There's Ray Ostrander's smiling face," beamed Evelyn. "What is he doing?" "Oh! Ray is very busy! He has saved all the gum he has chewed since l923. He is now making himself a gum-bo palace." "You mentioned what Walborg Wayne was doing, but you didn't say anything about lngeborgf' "We mustn't forget lngeborg Wayne and her partners, Isabelle Whitney, lVlarion Skjcfnsberg, and lVlaurine Skinner, because they have been of great service to the country. You probably noticed the peculiar stucco that the depot is made of. These girls make the stucco of peanut shells from Wal- borg's peanut factory and broken dishes from the Koch 'em Young Cafe." "Well, well, people certainly make use of every thing these days, but they certainly must be careless with dishes at the cafe." "Oh, when you hear who washes dishes you won't be surprised. ltis Welmc-n Niles, but the reason he breaks so many dishes, Cyou see he is a worse radio bug then he was in school! is that he is always 'listening in,' for- getful of dish washing and crash! Over goes a stack of dishes on the floor!" HWhy do they keep him if he is so careless?" "Oh! But you see they get such a good price for broken dishes that they are glad to have him. ln fact, they had to triple his salary to keep him, because Director Oscar Russel Jensen heard of Welmon's wonderful acting and offered him a position in the Slap Jack Comedies." "But Russel, a movie director-impossible! l thought that he was go- ing to Harvard," protested Evelyn. "That is what is so strange," said Resa, "Russel graduated from Har- vard, and was well known in the political world. Two years ago in Nlay he was appointed minister to Denmark and was supposed to sail in September. He decided to go west to take a vacation and he became so interested in the movies that when September came, he refused to go to Denmark." "Are any more of the Class of '23 in the movies?" uOh, yes! Several of the girls are in the movies. Yarda Palmquist is a star and she makes a very beautiful one too. Eula Moore, Grace Free- J5 1 1923 AI-I LA I-IA SA l923 man and Myrtle lngvaldson are very important characters in the movies. We see them quite often on the screen." "You haven't said any thing about Estella Hayward and lone Spencer." "Estella Hayward is a great cartoonist for the "Flytrap Weekly," at Blankville, Africa. She has written the famous books, 'How to Retain One's Girlish l..aughter,' and 'Men l Have Scornedf She once held a position manicuring the hands of the courthouse clock." "And we were both in Africa and dicln't see each other!" cried Evelyn. "lone Spencer is now the famous fashion creator for Sears and Roebuck, having made a large fortune raising dates from calendar leaves. She is na- tionally known because of her latest novel, 'Eat and Grow Thin'." "Tell me about Viola Roclsaterg does she still sing at beautifully as ever?" "Viola do-es not sing as much as she used tog she is now a whistling and dancing teacher here in Manchester. She is so very busy that she has two assistants, Margaret Christenson and Margaret Quinn. "Grace Johnson also lives in Manchester where she is a famous doctor. She goes to Rochester twice a week to treat patients there. She goes to and fro in an airplane." Hlsn't it strange," asked Resa, "but have you noticed how many mem- bers of our class are famous? We have all been lucky. We are not through yet of speaking of famous members of our class. Robert Steiler is the most renowned designer of women's clothes: he has become famous for his design- ing but he has become wealthy from selling ice cream cones at baseball games. Oh, Helmuth, don't forget to tell about Leonard Schott." "Leonard is a traveling salesman for perfume, but that is only a disguise for he really is a detective." "Oh! How thrilling!" exclaimed Evelyn. ul saw Robert Flint last week at Hayward," said Helmuth, Hand he tc-ld me that he believed that he had found his calling. He is going into the dairy business if he can get milk weeds to grow on his father's farm." 'iwilma Willadson has a reducing school at Bancroft, under her Wonder- ful care and treatment a person can lose fifty pounds over night. You know l have been threatening to send I-lelmuth thereg he has gained ten pounds in the last week," laughed Resa. "Olive Leeper married a French count, so you see we even have mem- bers of our class marrying royalty. "Evelyn Van Guilder is singing for the Salvation Army. She is very proficient, l hear, at playing a tamborine. "Oswald Nelson is a traveling salesman for electric fans in Alaska. He visits Douglas Nelson quite often to keep from getting homesick. "John Bergen, who, you remember, worked for the Freeborn County Bank when he was in High School, now has a bank of his own, a Sand Bank. "Arnold Fossurn is a taxicab driver and meets all trains. Between trains he hauls ashes, he told me that it is a money-making business. "Of course you haven't heard about the author in our class. just last year Harold Baarsc-n published his book, 'The Secret of Successf to pay the debts incurred during his long co-urtship of Marie Thompson. While Marie was waiting for Harold, she ran a farm out south of town." HlVlarie running a farmg this is realling interesting." "Helen Lehman and Annetta McCall are manufacturing wooden flat irons.

He is absolutely refuses to work before eight and after four. He demands two hours for lunch. "The other day when I went to John's bank to get some money, he told me that Reuben C. Johson is the minister in a fashionable Fifth Avenue church, New York. He was given this position to prevent any occasion for needing a larger church." "What is this world coming to?" "Martha Nelson has just completed a four-year course in electrical engineering and is now operating the electrical elevator at Skinner and ChamberIain's. She believes in starting at the bottom and working her way to the top. Horven Dale is the proud owner of the best Holstein herd in Minne- sota. His prize cow, Korneating Bossynio, has won the world record for butterfat production. "Leo Miller is running a ranch in the wild and wooly west. At present he is training Helen Nelson and Helon Saxon to be cow punchers. "Elmer Bagaason is the owner of a chemistry plant which puts out five million gallons of non-intoxicating alcohol annuallyf' "What is the name of that magazine that little newsboy is calling out?" asked Evelyn. "Oh! I must tell you! George Mccornack is publisher of one of the most widely known farm magazines, 'The Chore Boyf He was appointed Secretary of Agriculture by President Anne MclVIillen.

Maurine Skinner l923 AH LA I-IA SA 1923 A Long Voyage CPart D On a clear morning in the first part of September Ninteen hundred twenty, the "Ship of '24" embarked to transverse the "Sea of Accomplish- mentf' The vessel set out against a background of blue and white, a perfect dawn for the beginning of a bright and promising voyage. Although this was the ship's first encounter with the seas's storm-blasts and pitfalls, it set out with flag unfurled, upright keel and the determination to break all precedents by embarking boldly and courageously. With such a determination and re- markable crew and helmsman fcaptain I-lenryj, this ship was bound to reach its goal. As continued calm prevailed through the first two moonsg these bold sailors and this sea-faring crew, actuated by the spirit of the ceaseless motion of the briny waves about them, held a large celebration in the main cabin of the ship which was enjoyed by everyone. After about a month more of navigation on this tranquil silver sea, dur- ing which much headway was made, the captain was notified of a race to "Volley Ball Point" in which the four ships on the "Sea of Accomplishmentn were to take part. This race was to be staged with girls at the helms, so the girls of the i'Ship of '24" made the vessel ship-shape and cleared the deck for action. ln this race the "Ship of '24" brought defeat to the more ex- perienced "Ship of '22." So, through the whole cruise, this famous ship with sloping masts and dipping prow, plunged and plowed through all storms of wind and wave and came forth intact! Oh, lucky, those fortunate enough to have been members of the crew of this wonderful ship which completely shattered all precedents! fPart ID After being rigged out for a longer and more difficult cruise, the Hship of '24" embarked for the second time, with Captain Turner at the helm. ln honor of the successful voyage of the preceding year, this most wise captain judged that there was time to stop for a bit of revelry. And truly, gay revelry it was, for a party was held at which everyone enjoyed a wonderful time. After such pleasure, everyone settled down to do his part to direct the ship in its proper course. When the first naval battle was fought at Basket Ball Rock, the signal having been given to engage, the "Ship of '24' plunged fc-rth and forced all other vessels, even the "Ship of '22," the oldest on the sea, to retreat under tattered flags. After this, the 'Ship of 24" was looked upon with new ad- miration and respect for her crew by the crews ofthe other ships. As before, this famed "Ship of '24" 'igrouncl guns" in all nautical enter- prises. Each time it covered its name with honor and plowed through the heavy seas by the excellent aid and co-operation of the crew and captain. fpart IIIJ Being one hundred-fold stronger than for any preceding journey, again embarked with Captain Grobel at the helm and the determination to live up to every inch of its excellent reputation. Feeling the strength of experience, the crew decided to hold a celebration somewhat different from those of 43 I923 AH LA I-IA SA 1923 other years. Thus, one evening, in the salon of the ship might have been seen every kind of person from Martha Washington to a ferocious rnusketeer. At this gathering, everyone enjoyed a remarkable time. iDuring the journey, every member of the crew took advantage of all intership organizations from which they had heretofore been excluded on ac- count of their youth. Then when two more intership battles were fought at Basket Ball Rock, the crew mounted their guns and with white dipping sails, went through the foam and fog of both struggles and clawnis lazy sunbeams loitering up the gloom, found the "Ship of '24" still erect and calm victor of the day, much to the chagrin of the "Ship of '23"! This famous ship was well represented in every intership contest and those from the "Ship of '24i' taking part were true representatives of the talent and splendid spirit of all the crew. Each struggle, although some were but mild ones, only made the vessel better able to weather the storms and the crew more determined to win out in the end. Then as the end of this part of the journey drew near, the "Ship of '24'i entertained the "Ship of '23" at the most glorious celebration in the history of the "Sea of Accomplishmentfi So, with delightful memories of everything that had taken place during the voyage, just as the gleams of the red-gold sun setting behind the hills lighted its way, the crew of the "Ship of '24" steered the ship's course toward the promised land. I VALOIS DEZELL. THE SPIRIT OF YOUTH The spirit of youth elates us today, And bids us cast all our troubles away As the lightest of bubbles that float on the air, These are to us the slightest of care. The spirit of youth gladdens us too, And makes us sing out our joys anewg For the tiniest tinkling sound we hear, Is a sound to be counted a gift most dear. Oh! Keep this spirit of youth so gayg Happen what will or come what may. So you can accomplish a great success By hoping for all and winning the best. Such is the motto we Juniors shall take And value it high for its own true sake. Thus along through the journey of years This spirit of youth shall vanquish all fears. HELEN ELLIOTT '24.

Riding in, he looked about curiously. iiwhat ho!" And he rode through the second gate. Barely inside, he was accosted by an unearthly ten-foot creature, who ordered, "Dismount!" Trembling, Sir Jonathan obeyed and turned around amazed, to find the creature gone. Now that he was off his horse, he proceeded cautiously along the castle wall. He was terrified by the clanking of chains which he realized to be his armor, when, rounding a corner, he came upon a large, iron chest. He lifted the cover slowly, expecting to see an animated skeleton, but instead, he saw a huge folio volume, on which, vividly emblazoned, were the words: "History of the Class of '25." Jonathon heaved a sigh c-f relief, for here his quest ended! "Verle Borland-President" it was recorded. "One class party at Christmas. "High scholarship-first place in declamation. "Defeats and glories in basketball. "Candy sales. "Large class." - So that was all! With a dismayed expression on his face, he closed the book. Must he return to King Bernard with these meager details? At the bottom of the page he had noticed these words: Hseek ye further!" Putting the book back, he accordingly proceeded along the wall, into the castle. After walking down a long hallway, he approached a door, from whence came sounds of revelry. Entering, Jonathan saw the Class of '25 feasting bounteously. He jumped upon a nearby table and addressed the crowd: "Wake, ye' Class of '25," bellowed ,Sir Jonathan, forgetting his fear, 'iwakel and do great things. Ye have won great renown in football and basketball, and in high scholarship. Ye have done well in candy sales, and the like. Awake, I say, ye laggardsln He- left the hall, intending to search again for the chest and book. He was disappointed, however, for it had mysteriously disappeared. Mounting his horse, he set out for junioria.

They were greeted with jeers and shouts on every side, but the upper classmen were soon to find out that the Class of '26 was good for more than jeers. The Freshies, as they were usually termed, soon chose an able leader, Harold Ruble, by name, who piloted them safely through the year. They chose as their colors old rose and gray. "Have you bought your ticket yet?" "What time does it begin?" These, with others of like import, were the cries heard throughout the Fresh- men World, on a certain Friday in November. And why not? Was it not the day of the Freshmen party? What a wonderful party! Many games were played and the evening was topped off by a grand march and a wonderful lunch. December came, and with it the annual candy sale. The Freshmen strove mightily and succeeded in ranking next in line to the Seniors. Following the holiday season, the Freshmen lads and lassies donned "gym" attire for it was time for the lnterclass basket ball games. But, alas, although they did their level best, they succeeded in capturing only the Uboobyn prize.

Oftentimes he makes queer blunders And gets laughed at, and confused, But before the year's half over He forgets how he's been used. And he proves to other classes That heis full of pluck and vimg To his high school he is loyal And it soon grows proud of him. With a show of splendid courage I-le subdues all qualms and fearsg And he learns his lessons daily, To prepare for future years.

Over near the horizon there was one big, white cloud that looked exactly like a mass of beaten egg- while. It was an ideal day, yet the girls at Camp Wenonah had chosen this particular afternoon to stay at camp and Htake it easy" as one of the girls expressed it. Marion, the jolly, energetic chaperon was sitting at a table on the porch pretending to be busily engaged in writing letters. Out on the bank close to the lake, Jacqueline sprawled full length on two white pillows, poring over a classic, not the kind of which English teachers approve but the one telling the triumphs of Rodolph Valentino, Gloria Swanson, and the rest of the film world. ln the hammock nearby, Mickey, ,Iac's dearest friend and chum, was reading The Post or "cheap literature" as the prejudiced ,Iac called it. Marion disturbed the quiet of the camp. "l think, Jac, that you'd better stop gazing at that sheik pose of Rodolph if you expect to get to town before the postofhce closes." Jac jumped up with alacrity. "Hurrah, Mickey, it's our turn to go to town. Any supplies to get, Marion?" After receiving instructions to buy hair nets, cold cream and corn plas- ters, the two girls rowed across the lake to the little Village of Elysian. Enter- ing Main Street, Mickey remarked, "This town certainly lives up to its name if Elysian means quiet and peaceful." "Yes. l don't 'spose we'll even shock the natives by our attire as they're probably used to seeing girl campers in knickers.'s go get a soda right away. l'm so thirsty after that row in the sun." After drinking a lemon soda apiece, they decided to have each a pine- apple sundae. Finishing these they went to the postoffice, received all the camp mail, then stopped in at another store and had a bottle of pop. Jac in- sisted on buying some I-lershey's and chocolate creams to eat in bed that night. Camp regulations forbade that candy, pop, ice cream, et cetera, be eaten between meals. Mickey scented salted peanuts and soon had a large package of them in her hand. Their shopping completed, the girls made their way to the boat, leisurely eating salted peanuts and l-lershey's. "You know, Mickey, I like strawberry pop but I don't believe it likes me. I feel sort of sick already." "Well, why lay it to the strawberry pop? You had a lemon soda and a pineapple sundae, too, remember." "Yes, l know, but l'm pretty sure it's the pop that doesn't agree with me." The girls reached camp just in time for supper and found a pitcher of ice-cold lemonade ready for them. Of course they were thirsty after eating salted peanuts and-well, they drank not only unwisely but too well. Here there is a lapse of three or four hours, until 'ilights out" and Mickey and Jac are in bed with a bag of chocolate creams between them. 65 I923 AI-I LA I-IA SA 1923 Mickey was sleepily reciting Hin l492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Soon they all drifted into the arms of Morpheus and quiet reigned in camp. This time there is a lapse of two hours. lndistinct murmurings, seeming to take the form of pleadings and supplicatic-ns, are heard from the corner of the porch occupied by Mickey and Jac. Then ,Iac hysterically screams, "I Wc'n'tl l simply won't eat one single peanut!" She is sitting up in bed frantically rocking to and fro when Mickey wakes and shakes her into consciousness. "Whatever is the matter with you, child, yelling at the top of your voice like a Comanche lndian? Explain at once." The darkness hid ,Iac's sheepish grin. ,"Sh-sh. I don't believe the others woke up. Oh, Mickey, live had the most awful nightmare. I dreamed that you and l were hiking across the Sahara desert. Just when we were about all in, we came to a sheik's tent- house or whatever you call 'em. Anyway, the sheik was none other than Rc-dolph Valentino and we were invited to enter and recline on beautiful cushions. He understood that we were famished so he clapped his hands and soon two of his slaves appeared with refreshments. But, horrors, what did these refreshments consist of but chocolate creams, l'lershey's and pineapple sundaes. l could have torn my hair, but we dared not displease the sheik so we managed to eat most of it. It seemed tc- me as if that horrid Rodolph had the most hateful, grinning expression on his face all the while. We signified that we were thirsty and were given a choice of strawberry pop, lemon soda or lemonade. A large dish of salted peanuts was then set before us but l refused to touch them. The sheik was highly offended and said l must eat some of them or die. l was in the act of begging mercy at his feet, l guess, when you woke me. l swear that l shall never eat another salted peanut or drink another strawberry pop or go to see movies featuring that silly Rodolph Valentino. l've had enough! "Words, are cheap and candy isn't. Youive been lying on this bag of chocolates all night." "Oh, spare me any more misery." There is a thud as the bag of crushed chocolates is dropped to the floor. The next morning there is a suspicious spot close to Jac's bed, where every description of ant: great ants and little ants, red ants and black ants seem drawn as to a magnet.

There was a movement of the head on the pillow: then two sleepy, in- quiring eyes, surmounted by several wire horns, opened, and the not un- beautiful feven though it was morning, face was stretched c-ut of shape by a prodigious yawn. The eyes turned tc-ward the window. Upon seeing the silvery sheets drenching the window, the owner of them sighed and said, "Aw, Gee, such weather! just the kind for sleeping, and here l have to get up and go to school." Crushed by the sorrow of this, she, for the leading character of our story, is a girl, prepared for a stolen nap, for the hand of the dressing-table clock pointed to a quarter to eight. "Margaret, get up now, if yc-u're going to have anything to eat. If yc-u'll hurry, I'll have some warm waffles for you. But hurry, because the washwoman's herefi "Yah !" The girl, torn by the usual morning affections for the nice, warm bed, and a growing appetite for waffles, yielded to the latter and got up. She had to get up eventually, so why not now? Thinking about those licking-good waffles, for her mother could make good waffles, she started to sing forgetting that old saying: "Sing before breakfast: cry before night." However, she soon stopped when she saw the moist stringy tresses that she unwound from the curlers-"guaranteed to give your hair, a beautiful marcel wave." This time was the exception to the rule, perhaps on account of the weather. Nevertheless, a new hair net covers a multitude of sinsg so after a final glance in the mirror-that is, the one in her room--and a pat, she ran down to the breakfast room, where two cold waffles were the only members of the reception committee, her mother being down in the basement. At school, all the instructors seemed weighed down by the ominous sig- nificance of the day. One of the teachers-her favorite by the way, about whom she day-dreamed and at whom she smiled all during class-after she had said, ul don't understand" to a question-replied, very sarcastically, and to the delight of the class, "You might understand if you'd study once in a while." She had said nl don't understand" at least once every day since the school year had begun. ln another class the examination papers had been returned. Our hero- ine received 69. "Wasn't the teacher mean? l don't get through with it, it was so long, and she took off ten for every little mistake! l don't see anything wrong with this, do you?" et Cetera, for so the alibis for the poor marks go. Consequently, she was, as we might say, a little "Crabby" when she Went hc-me for luncheon. Her mother, after one look at her face, refrained from saying anything about helping with the meal, but just said she had pressed lVlargaret's dress for the dance that night. Before pressing it, she had noticed a tear in the lace panel and had pinned it up for the pressing. She, Margaret, 67 1923 AI-I LA HA SA 1923 must be sure to mend it before the party. Her daughter heard her out with- out replying, forgetting the words as soon as she had heard them. After a long laborious afternoon, during which the rain had ceased and during which the clock had been studied more than the text books, she was glad to accept her chum's invitation for a ride. All went well until they reached the suburbs of the city, where they encountered the only nail within ten blocks. After much struggling and much breaking of carefully mani- cured finger nails, the two girls succeeded in changing the tire. None of this improved Margaret's temper. It Was striking six as they drove into the main section of the city, and it was half-past six before Margaret arrived home. The family was eating dinner, and she slid into her place without saying anything, for her father be- lieved in punctuality at meals. "I don't wish for any dessert, Mother. I'll have to hurry to get ready in time." And the girl made a movement toward leaving her place. "Margaret, you'll eat your dessert and finish with us, do you hear me? If you can't start the meal with us, you can at least finish with us!" At the note of irritation in her father's voice the girl subsided, although it was after seven and the party began at eight. A She had just put the finishing touches to a very mature-looking coiffure when she heard her escort arrive. Whereupon, she hastily put on her dress, and snatching up the inevitable and necessary vanity case, ran down stairs. At the party, all the girls had blossomed out in new spring attire, making Margaret's dress, in her opinion, look old and dowdy. She wished she hadn't come. At the conclusion of a very satisfactory dance, a Well-meaning friend came to her and said, "l've been trying to tell you all evening, but couldn't get the chance. The tip of your left ear is showing through the puff." For the rest of the evening, Margaret graced the sidelines of the room, for worn out, cross, and in an old dress, she could not keep the smiles, gay chatter, and the repartee going. V Thus, it was with a sigh of relief that she welcomed the time for re- freshments and seated herself on a davenport to await her partner, who had gone to get the ice cream that, as usual, constituted the refreshments. The young gallant, coming with two dishes of half-melted cream, gave one dish to her and sat down. Alas! He almost met himself coming up, for he got up faster, much faster than he had sat down. Margaret, with sudden enlightenment, pulled away the lacy panel that had been adorning the place where her now very much embarrassed partner had seated himself. The Pin! Overcome by confusion and despair, she fainted, crying uThis is too much!" Before she lost consciousness, however, she sent a prayer toward the skies that the thirteenth might never, never, come again on a Friday. LUCILE KNUTSON '24. Let the world slide, I should worry.-"Happy" Olson. 68 I923 AH LA HA SA I923 IVORY SOAP "Where are you going, young man? You look wild," said the man across the street. "Well, I feel wild. I'm on my way to the doctor. I first noticed it when I forgot my own name in roll call yesterday. I never could remember other peofpleis names, but, when I forgot my own name, I thought it was serious. Well, if it isn't gone again. I know it has something to do with the farm. Let's see, farm-corn-hay-Oh, yes, my name is Hay," was the reply. "I decided to go to the doctor because yesterday Mrs. Hay told me to go to the department store and get some Ivory soap." "Well, I went down to the store thinking of a half a dozen ways of re- membering Ivory soap. I joined a mob of women who were all trying to buy bargains in linen. Then I consulted the first floor-walker who wasn't sur- rounded by inquiring women and said, "I want to buy ships." I-Ie answered, "Toy department in basement." "No," I said, "Life preserversf, "Oh, life preservers are in the sporting goods department, fourth floor, sir." "Well I left him in disgust, and tried another. I said, 'I want six cakes.' u Bakery department sixth floor, sir." "No, no, it is something in cakes." u Grocery department, same floor, sir." "No, no! They are white cakes." "Oh, angel food! Same Hoor, sir." "I-Iold on, they're made of pure vegetable oil." "Oil doesn't come in cakes. It comes in bottles, same floor." I shook my head and summoning all my wits, remembered and said, "This thing is advertised everywhere, and it comes in kitchen size." Surgical goods-seventh floor, sir," said he, trying to walk away, but I grabbed him by the wrist, determined to make him understand. "lt's good for the skin and the complexion." "You're sure it isn't Mother Hubbard? Underwear department on se- cond floor." I then saw he was making fun of me and I left him. Soon I met an- other floor-Walker who put his hands up to his ear as soon as he saw me open my mouth to speak. But to my joy, one of the words I wanted came forth and I quickly said, "I want some soap." "What,s that?" "Can I get soap here?" "Can you get what-soup?" "Not soup-soap." an All soups are in the grocery department, but I don't think they carry that brand." "Brand nothing, I want soap." "Oh, you want to eat, restaurant, top floor, sir." "Eat nothing, I want soap." 6.9 1923 AH LA I-IA SA 1923 By this time I had lost my temper and said to the next floor-walker, "Oh, you know what I want. lt's advertised in every magazine in the world." iiwhy, my dear friend, you had better take the store aisle by aisle and keep your eyes open, and when you see what you want, put your hand on it and ask for it." Suddenly a brilliant idea struck me that if l could get to the drug de- partment, l would likely see some cakes but could not think of the name of the department, so l wondered aimlessly about on various floors for an hour and a half. Soon l came to the department where ivory articles were sold. l shouted at the top of my voice, nl want lvory soap. l want ivory soapf' ln a minute the detective had seized me, and was struggling to the street with me for he thought l had gone mad. ultis all right, l'rn not mad, there it isli' l yelled. l stopped the clerk and told him to send six cakes to my house C.O.D., and then l left the store in a hurry. It was not until evening that l remembered that l had forgotten to give them my address, so of course l did not get my soap after all. So now l am going to the doctor and have him treat my brain, for while there is life, there is soap, I mean hope for me. I believe l'm the only man in the United States who could ever forgot the name of so useful a thing as Ivory soap." OLGA I-IINTZ '2 5 MARY ELLEN SMITH Mary Ellen drew out her handkerchief to wipe away the tears that forced their way out of her bright blue eyes. She meant to draw away from the cloakroom door, but "she," being the subject of gossip must listen to the rest. "Really, l don't like her at all. She isn't any good, and Mary Ellen for a name, why, it sounds babyish. What do you think Carrie?" "lm not thinking this afternoon, Marian, l have nothing to sayfi Marian Carr, who was the "whole cheese," as some called her, liked to talk about people and bring them down to nc-thing. Ever since Mary Ellen had come to their school, she had hated her for reasons of her own and she wasn't afraid to say so. Mary Ellen clinched her fists and Words not spoken made her grit her teeth, "I'll show you, Marian Carr." The biggest event of the school year was not far off, the annual candy sale. All classes were excited and worked hard for the prize. When the com- mittee was chosen for the Freshman Class, Mary Ellen hoped she would be one of them. But luck seemed against her. No one wanted a girl they dicln't know very well. She kept her eyes fastened on the class president who was choosing. Marian Carr, Ranny Davis, and Carrie Thomas were selected. Mary Ellenis eyes turned to Ranny's. He caught the glance and seemed to understand. I-le liked Mary Ellen. He knew he did. 70 1923 AH LA I-IA SA I923 The day before the candy sale, Mary Ellen brought her candy to Ranny. He took the cover off the bo-x. He said nothing, for words were useless. Lovely French Kisses, creamy and tempting, wrapped in clean white waxed paper. A smile was sufficient. Annual Candy Sale! Hustling, bustling pupils, hurrying hither and thither, excited and busy! Ranny put the Freshman candy on display. Mary Ellen's candy he placed in the center of the table. It was a sure drawing card. He hid a large box so it would go faster. But alas for Mary Ellen! The evening before johnny Watner ran over her with his bicycle. She wasn't hurt much but her mother insisted upon having her in the hospital where she would receive the best care. "Say! What do you call these?" asked Billy Malone, the clown of the class. "French Kisses," replied Ranny, smiling. "Gimme a quarter's worth moreg they sure are good." ul-leyl Joe, co-me on over here and try these kisses." "Do tell me, Ranny Davis, what do you call these?" asked Amy White. "Why, they are simply delicious." "French Kisses." "Do you know where l could get the recipe?" An idea popped into Ranny's head, ul surely clo. Amy, you come back in a little while, and I'll have one for you if you pay for it." "I'll be back." A half an hour later Ranny came with fifty neatly typewritten recipes. Two boys had helped him, and it had not taken him long. Billy Malone got on a chair with the recipes in his hand. "Right this way, ladies and gents! Get the famous recipe for 'French Kisses, only a dimell' After the candy sale Ranny went to the hospital. "Oh! Mary Ellen we sold five dollar's worth of recipes for French Kisses,' and we won the candy sale." The words Mary Ellen wished to speak choked her. "And by the way, l'm going to have a party soon, and you'll come, Won't you?" "You bet I will, Rannyf' GLADYS TUBERTY '26 What I know, I know I know.-Oscar Russel Jensen.

From ten boys and fifteen girls, six were chosen by a faculty committee to take part in a further elimination contest. The decision was narrowed down to two, Arthur Gil- bert and Evelyn Thykeson. These two contestants were awarded first places at the sub-district contest held in Faribault, February sixteenth. At Dodge Center, a month later, Miss Thykeson won first place again, and was sent to Minneapolis to give her reading at the state contest held March thirtieth, at the Mcphail School. The entire school is grateful to Miss Larsen for her skillful coaching of our contestants. Ilebate Question: Resolved, That a court of the Kansas Industrial type should be adopted in Minnesota. Decision of Judges: Fairmont 3, Albert Lea, Aff. 0. Decision of Judges: Mankato 33 Albert Lea, Neg. 0. Debate is one of the best of our school activities for the development of citizenship. its object is to arrive at the truth of a stated question through an oral dispute. Empty assertions or denials are not sufficient. Evidence or facts must be presented to prove or' disprove the proposition. ln order to do this an analysis of the entire situation is necessary. The main issues must be discovered and kept clearly in mind in C-rder to select the proper facts. Likewise, the relation of the facts to the main argument must be shown. Iso- lated facts are meaningless. This gives almost unparalleled training in the acquisition and organization of information. ' ln addition to this the debator must be able to present to an audience the truth as he sees it. He must take to the debating platform a clear head, sound judgment, and self-confidence-qualities which are essential to the effective participation in any of the activities of a citizen in a democracy. Ability to distinguish between truth and error in public discussion and to pref sent the true facts c-f a situation is essential to progress. The best training for life is participation in life itself. Debate gives this training and should be recognized as equal to athletics, student self-governf ment, and other school activities in training for citizenship. Work on debate was begun late this year, but a more creditable showing was made by both teams than the decision of the judges would seem to indi- cate. The debators are to be commended for their untiring and sincere efforts. 76 l923 AH LA HA SA l923 NEGATIVE Russell Jensen Helmuth Anderson Herman Gustaveson Coach Svendsen l AFFIRMATIVE Maude Morrison Robert Stieler Lenore Salthun 77 A .

Such a night comes infrequently, but when it does come, you know it's here. Shakespeare had nothing on us, when it comes to writing plays and acting 'em out.

On the second night of its appearance, February ninth, it played to an audience of at least three hun- dred. lVlost of those present at the second appearance had been turned away the first night. The clearance from this comedy went to pay for the new curtain. The members of the cast are to be especially commended for their tact in their admirable presentation of so difficult a play. Miss Tupper, the lead- ing lady, deserves especial praise. She played a dual part in which as a Southern heiress and as a typical lrish cook she imitated perfectly the Southern, pleasant drawl and the lrish brogue. ln every play there is someone around whom the entire play is centeredg trembling either upon the brink of utter Conlinuerl on page H21 80 I923 AH LA HA SA 1923 WINNERS OF STUNT NITE 81 1923 AH LA HA SA 1923 "COME OUT OF THE KITCHEN" fC0ntinuef1frvm. page 30j collapse oi' upon the pearly threshold of glorious success. To Miss Tupper belongs unquestionably the acknowledgement of the success of this pleasing comedy. Mr. Scotton, the hero, was a typical northern gentleman upon a visit to the sunny South. Here, so he thought, could be found the best places for a delightful vacation. He, too, played his part to perfection and deserves much praise for his contributions toward the playis success. Mr. Hallin, as butler, was probably the most perfect butler to be had for the northern gentleman. Miss Featherstone truly upheld the cavalier characteristics and poise of the cultured southern family. Her vivid portrayal of a society girl as a chambermaid was highly amusing. Miss Dickinson and Miss Bringgold played their parts with remarkable artistic skill. Miss Sargent, as Thomas Lefferts, a second rate pc-et, succeeded very well in a difficult role. Mr. Svendsen, an A-l lawyer, proved to be a gentleman of good taste but bad behavior. Mr. Stegner, a land agent, very cleverly crawled from most of the difficult situations thrust upon him. Mr. Emmons, as Brindy, was a Hscreamf' The part, we mean, and not Mr. Emmons, was a scream. No other member of the cast could hardly have tried harder to live up to his part than did Brindy. To him we owe our side-aches and tears which accompanied our mirth. Miss Goodall lent the very essence of a southern at- mosphere to the play. She, as a negro cook, was placed in unceremo-nious dis- grace by the Uwhite gemmun from de Nawthf' We are agreed that this comedy was the best and most successful event that took place upon the high school stage this year.

A jitney lunch was served in the gymnasium at ten o'clock one morning. For the second time in three years the Boys' Club won the annual Stunt Night contest. The officers of the Club for the first semester were: George McMillen .......... .......... P resident Reuben Johnson . . . .... Vice-president Harold Baarson . . . . . . ......

Edward Truesdale, Warren Stegner GIRLS' CLUB The Girls' Club of Albert Lea High School grows bigger and better every year. The girls have had their interesting programs once a month under the leadership of competent officers headed by Estelle Hayward, during the first semester, and Emyline Jensen, the seco-nd semester. The members of the Girls' Club consider themselves very fortunate in having had Mrs. Hayward and Mrs. Spencer as mother-sponsors. All indications at present, are that the Mother-Daughter Banquet will be better than ever, if that is possible. The Club became interested in holding a Girls' Conference at Albert Lea similar to'the Boys' Conference. It was found to be too- late for one this school year, but plans are on foot to have a Conference next year, and it is to be hoped that the girls of '24 will carry out the good work which the girls of '23 have begun. 100 I923 AH LA HA SA I923 E E UB RLS' CL GI l 101 1923 Al-I LA I-IA SA 1923 EL CIRCULO CASTELLANO The class in second year Spanish, not being satisfied with the short thirty- five-minute period allowed them each day, decided to inaugurate a new club. Consequently in the fall of 1922, El Circulo Castellano was added to the list of organizations in Albert Lea High School. With their motto, "Ejercicio hace maestro," kept clearly in mind, they have conducted meetings in Spanish on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. The first year Spanish students were invited to an open meet- ing held in November. The club made a favorable showing on Stunt Night. El Circulo Castellano owes its success to its sponsor, Miss Sargent, and to the following capable officers: Maude Morrison . . ...... President Anna Nelson ..... . . . Vice-president Evelyn Thykeson . . . ...... Secretary Thalman Fretheim ..................... Treasurer The many, varied programs of the meetings have been both entertaining and instructive. Outside of the enjoyment afforded, the members believe that El Circulo Castellano has enabled them to make a noticeable stride toward better Espanol. - JUNIOR BOYS' CLUB The Junior High Club of Albert Lea High School is a comparatively new organization, having come into being in the year 1922. About forty Freshmen and Sophomore boys are members of the Club. Meetings were held twice a month and were fairly well attended. The Club was represented at the Older Boys' Conference held at Rochester. This or- ganization is capable of doing a great deal of gc-od among the younger boys in High School and should receive hearty support and co-operation. The oflicers are: Cornelius Clementson . . ........ President Merrill Nelson ...... . . . Vice-president Herman Anderson . . . ...... Secretary Robert Thykeson . . . . . .

The Board has been able to defray all expenses of this yearis athletics, all out-of-town expenses, and new jerseys for the football team. The Board with the Business Women's League put on a lecture, Octo- ber 31. This lecture was on Alaska, given by Edgar C. Raine. This lecture netted a small amount to the Board. The members consist of a boy and girl from each class, captains of the football and basketball teams, coaches, and one faculty member. The offi- cers are chosen either from the Board or high school. This year's members are: john Bergen, Emyline Jensen, Vernon Bjoro, Seniors, Clair Grobel, Mildred Johnston, Ralph Thykeson, Juniorsg Orrin Hansen, Cleo English, Lane Demmon, Sophomoresg jack Wiley, Leo Donovan, Freshmen, lVlr. Hallin, lVlr. Truesdale, lVlr. Stegner, Miss Neal. THE ALL HIGH SCHOOL COTJNCIL The organization of the All High School Council adds another step toward making our school the best. Mr. Brown, our superintendent, the originator of this council, presented the idea to the student body, and after a lengthy discussion, it was unanimously accepted. The constitution was drawn up and brought before the student body, November twenty-fourth, by George McCornack. After a thorough discussion, the constitution was adopted. The council consists of the presidents and another elected member from each class, the editor and business manager of the Ah La Ha Sa, and the presidents of the Athletic Association, Older Boys' Club, the Junior High Club, and the Girls' Club. Reuben Johnson was elected president and Bernard Flesche secretary and treasurer. Because the council was organized in the middle of the year its only big accomplishment has been its organization, but greater things are expected in the years to come. 107 1923 AH LA I-IA SA I923 THE ATHLETIC BOARD OF CONTROL W ' T wx l923 AH LA HA SA l9Z3 L STUDENTS COUNCIL LL HIGH SCHOO A W IU!! 1923 AH LA HA SA 1923 THE RADIO CLUB Perhaps one of the least known organizations about school, but certainly the most interesting, is the Radio Club. Its members are those about school who are interested in science and especially in the operation and construction of wireless receiving and transmitting sets. Meetings are held regularly or irregularly as the occasion demands, and the program is always one to be remembered. Lively discussions keep everyone alert, and novel experiments are the rule, and not the exception. At one of the club meetings some time back, after the regular business had been taken care of, or else laid on the table for future discussion, Waldo Hilton gave a discussion on "How to build an aerial properly." His explana- tions cleared up in the minds of all who were present, many of the questions which are likely to bother a novice. lVlr. Scotton, of the physics department, was next called on, and he explained in a vivid manner a number of the sources of electricity, showing especially by the aid of numerous pieces of apparatus, that the dynamo was the present-day source of most all electrical power, es- pecially for radio work. An interesting and startling series of experiments were given by Waldo Hilton and Earl Hillebrand for the Radio Club's exhibition on Stunt Night. Thus in school and out, the work of the Radio Club is certainly interesting and novel. The officers for the club the first semester were as follows: The President ....... Vice-president ..

They have put themselves whole-heart- edly into the work and by their personalities have inspired many a "glum" student to become interested in the teams that have represented the school. Every student took great delight in learning the new yells the boys found and printed on attractive yell sheets. 113 1923 AH LA HA SA l923 FOOTBALL REVIEW This year has been a very enthusiastic football year in Albert Lea High School-by far a greater success than the total scores would indicate. Our coach, lVlr. E. C. Truesdale, picked a team from green material. With only two letter-men back Coach Truesdale put this team into shape and launched a successful season. The prospects for the 1923 football season are exceedingly bright. Only two football men graduate this year, Mortenson and D. Nelson. l-lowever, these two men will be greatly missed and their places will be hard ones to fill. Sept. 23-Albert Lea 19 vs. Austin Boy Scouts 0--Here The initial game showed plainly Coach Truesdale's efforts in developing the team. The teamwork was fine. Sept. 30-Albert Lea 25 vs. Waseca 0-Here Waseca's line was penetrated for gains. The end runs were excep- tionally good. Oct. 7-Albert Lea 6 vs. Winnebago 25-There Winnebago won by a series of end runs and forward passes. The game was played on a wet, slippery Held. Oct. 14-Albert Lea 27 vs. Bricelyn 0-Here Line drives and backfielcl work won the game. Sensational end runs and fine football displayed. Oct. 21-Albert Lea 0 vs Faribault 25-There Large delegation of rooters from Albert l..ea witnessed the game. It was a hard-fought game. They fought to a finish against a better team. Nov. 3-Albert Lea 6 vs. Shattuck 13-Here This was an exceedingly rough game. Albert Lea kept ball in op- ponents' territory nearly all the time. Ellsworth Nelson had the misfortune to break his leg in this game. Nov. ll-Albert Lea 0 vs. Austfn 0-Here This was the tightest and most hard-fought game of the whole season. Albert l..ea played the offense during the entire game. Each man gave his best. The team: Left End-E.. Nelson and Welton. Left Tackle-Brown. Left Guard-Morrison and l-lopperstad. Center1G. Mortensen. Right Guard-J. Vandegrift Right Tackle-D. Nelson and Wulff. Right End-Hendrickson and Wiley. Quaterback-Haynes. Left l-lalf--Porter. Right l-lalf-R. l-lanson and Wulff. Full Back-Grobel, Captain. Our football team-a group of manly boys who gave their best to their school---strong, determined, forceful, loyal, and true boys, everyone of them. Self is lost in the all-ruling motive of loyalty to schoolg they become as one with one purpose-to win. Our boys represent something of the best in school life-the athletic ideals of the student body. A school without foot- ball would be as the sky without its moon-inconceivable. 114 1923 AH'LA HA SA 1923 D FOOTBALL SQUAD THE X 115 1923 AH LA HA SA I923 ' ' 116' 923 AH LA HA SA I923 Q 4: Q od U1 P: ,J A fn F H M CD 4 sn rl A fi 117 -I . 1923 AH LA HA SA 1923 BASKETBALL To secure a well-balanced team was no easy matter at the opening of the basketball season. Only one of the last year's letter-men was eligible to play throughout the season. Though the record of the games appears to show an unsuccessful season, yet it was a highly successful season in that it has trained our boys and put them in running form for next year. Two men will be lost by graduation, Reuben Johnson and Garland lVlortenson. Much praise is due our coach, lVlr. E. C. Truesdale, an all-state man from Carleton. His untiring efforts in developing and training the team are fully appreciated by the team as well as the student body. The character of the boys deserves comment. They played hard, never ceasing, against odds, when everything was lc-st. They stuck to it through thick and thin-all for their school and our school-Albert Lea High. Thanks to the fine spirit and fine backing with which the student body showed its appreciation of the team's efforts! Thus all things considered, it can justly be said that the basketball season was a success. Austin Scouts, Here, December 15, 1922 Albert Lea easily won the first game of the season by a score of 16 to 10. Northwood, Here, December 20, 1922 Northwood, the fastest team of Northern lowa, overpowered us by a score' of 30 to 15. Northwood, There, January 5, 1923 The lowa quint again downed us 22 to 7. Wells, Here, January 12, 1923 The Wells five won in a close exciting game-6 to 8. Winnebago, Here, January 19, 1923 The Cherry and Blue were again frozen out in a hard-fought battle, --5 to 11. Mankato, There, January 26, 1923 Mankato won in a very poorly played game, 7 to 19. St. Mary's, Here, February 3, 1923 The locals downed by a score of 23 to 20. Wells, There, February 9, 1923 Albert Lea won in the hardest fought game of the season. Two extra periods were played. Score 17 to 15. Mankato, Here, February 16, 1923 Albert Lea won a game of intense excitement-19 to 20. Delevan, Here, February 21, 1923 The locals lost by a score of 26 to 1 1 in the poorest played game of the season. V Fairmont, There, March 2, 1923 Fairmont won to the tune of 12 to 27. The team: Forward-G. Mortensen. Forward-R. Dale. Center-O. Dale and Rodli. Guard-R. Johnson. Guard-L. Brown and Schott. Substitutes-A. Anderson, l. Johnson. R. Thykeson, W. Anderson. 718 I923 AH LA HA SA I923 119 I923 AH LA HA SA I923 GIRLS' INTERCLASS GAMES The girls' games this year were of unusually good quality. The teams had practiced hard and fought for the championship with the usual zeal and en- cleavor. The Sophomores eliminated the Freshman in the First round by a score of I8 to 2. The Juniors took a hard-fought battle from the Seniors by a 8 to 4 score. ln the final game the practice and skill of the Juniors showed itself in their game with the Sophomores when they took them into camp by a score of II to 5. The Junior team has worked together for two years and make a skillful working team. The Junior team as follows: R. C.-V. Hanson. L. G.-A. Larson. J. C.-S. Westberg. R. F.-O. I-lalling. R. G.-M. O'Byrne. L. F.--E. Pihl. "The Two Little Women."-Helen Pihl and Gladys Kennelly. 120 1923 AH LA I-IA SA 1923 JUNIORCHAMPIONS THE BOYS' INTERCLASS TOURNAMENT The interclass this year was the most closely contended in years. The big upset came in the Junior-Senior game. The first game between the Seniors and Freshmen was a hard fight but the Freshmen were both out-weighecl and out-played, the score was 28 to 5 in favor of the Seniors. The Juniors took the second game from the Sophs by a score of 24 to 0. In the second round the Seniors beat the Sophs by a score of I2 to 6. This game was slow and unexciting. The juniors took a one-siclecl game from the Freshmen by a 38 to l score. I The flnal game of the tournament was the Junior-Senior game, result- ing in a win for the Junior team by a score of I5 to 3. The games were very poorly attended and not as exciting as the spring tournament. Hay faltas?-Miss Sargent. May I please see the following.-Miss Bringgolcl. This is a democracy.-Miss Streeter.

The purpose of this department is to train stu- dents to teach in the rural schools. The work consists of fc-ur main lines, a review of the common branches, methods in the technique of teaching, prac- tice in handling classes, and instruction in industrial work such as sewing, hot lunches, primary hand work, manual training, and so forth. The stu- dents have a chance to observe and practice in the grade schools and also have three weeks in observation and teaching in the rural schools. Until this year Seniors have been permitted to take this course, but by offering it to graduates only, a higher standard of work can be required and more credit is given to those who wish to go on to a state teachers' college. After teaching a year, a graduate of this department may now go to any teachers' college in the state and receive a full year's credit, thus finishing a two years' course there in one year. It is hoped this will greatly increase the number taking the course. HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT The Home Economics cc-urse is divided into two departments, cookery and sewing, with each department offering special work: Foods and Cookery, a study of food principles, food stuffs and their cookery, taken mostly by first year girls, though not necessarily, and Home Management, meal prepara- tion and home managing-by those having first year prerequisite. The sewing is divided into the garment-making-enabling the girls to get a working knowledge of the machine and the fundamental principles of garment constructiong the second year offers a semester of Textile and Dress- making-more advanced work in garment construction. Paralleling these courses, as required by Smith I-Iughes schools, is the science fbiology and general science, related to foods and art related to clothing. The aim of the department is not to turn out girls expert in technique in either department-but to give the girls an appreciative practical working knowledge in the fundamentals of each course-a basis for more work whether continued in the home or school. This management group did an excellent piece of work in remodeling the lunch room-changing it from an unattractive room into as good-looking one as possible under the circumstances. I-Iot lunches were prepared and served during the winter months. To note the success of this, one only needed to come early and watch how eagerly the students waited to be served. From time to time the sewing girls have done their bit helping with the costumes used in the pageant and making curtains for the assembly room and stage doors. A 4 I-I Club, state garment-making and bread club, was organized this year. The club is making itself known even though it may not accomplish what it hopes until next year. Come down and see us. We may be on the bottom shelf-but not ne- cessarily lacking in enthusiasm and good times. 125 1923 Al-I LA HA SA l923 MANUAL TRAINING DEPARTMENT The Manual Training Department of the Albert Lea schools consists of a flve- year course, two of which are in the grades and three in High School. Mr. Tellet has charge of the first three years of Manual Training, in which they take up the elementary work. During these years the pupils learns the foundation principles of Manual Training. In the Freshman year Mechanical Drawing is taken up over which Mr. Neudecker has charge. During the Sophomore year the real work begins, making large pieces of furniture. Mechanical Drawing is also more advanced this year. The most complicated work comes in the Junior year. Pattern making is taken up in Manual Training and Architectural Drawing is studied in Mechani- cal Drawing. With Mr. Neudecker and Mr. Tellet in charge of the Manual Training Department it is sure to continue to prosper. AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT A large increase in the attendance in vocational agricultural course set up in the Albert Lea Public Schools under the provisions of the Federal Vo- cational Act of 1917 is shown, according to the following enrollment: At the close of 1923 there was an agricultural enrollment of twenty-five pupils in six and nine months' course, and over 200 in the part-time evening course. At the close of the year l9l8 the enrollment was only eleven. An inrease of nearly 128 percent is registered for the period. Don't call me lvlerlee my rremee Fat.-Merle Neleerr.

This is a sad mistake. The only people who made an agreement to pay the editor fc-r omitting their names from the Joke Department are: Oswald Nelson, Ruth Babcock, George Wiley, Evelyn Pihl, Harold Baarson, Anne Sutton, Clarence Olson, Helen Saxon, Reuben Johnson and Maude Morrison. The terms specified in the contract were 352.02 per word: the first payment to be made the first of September. Owing to the fact that no payments were made the editor has used their names at will.
