The place of pleasant memories.
Where friends are made - - not for one
day - - but forever.
Work and Play -How significant
a phrase. Here is a formula which leads
to success. Every member of the Class
of 1937 desires to be successful. It is
well to renzenzber that in this life we get
nothing save by ejort. The highest
form of success comes only through toil
and struggle and sacrifice.
Though we should all realize the
importance of work no one should over-
look the importance of play. Both are
essential to success. He who labors has
earned the privilege of play. You have
learned both. Practice both as you go
through life-Wfork hard. Play hard and
yours will be an abundant life.
H. N. PETERSON
High school life is not all work,
but neither is it all play. Life outside
of school is also made up of these two
components, and we are apt to find
more of the first than of the second.
If the members of the Class of 1937
can find their life,s work so interesting
and absorbing that solving its prob-
lems and perplexities will prove to be
a game to be played with zest and eag-
erness, that spirit of play will go far
to bring that high measure of success
which I hope may be the portion of
each and every member of the Class.

As governing body of the high school, the student council un-
der the supervision of F. Herda, has carried out its assigned duties
very effectively. During the past year the council has been kept busy
planning programs and executing and administering rules and regula-
tions within the high school. Its duties include the controlling of the
point system, and the planning of lyceum and auditorium programs.
Business meetings were held regularly every Monday throughout the
Before Christmas vacation the council conducted its third
annual Have A Heart campaign for the purpose of creating a com-
munity fund for needy students. To obtain money to purchase a new
curtain for the auditorium, they sponsored the Spring Revue , which
was held in April.
june Hobart and Marjorie Thompson represented Alexan-
dria at the annual convention of the Northwest Federation of Student
Councils of which the Alexandria council is a charter member. Ed-
ward Dahlsten and Gerald johnson also attended this convention at St.
Cloud as unofficial delegates.
The officers of the student council for the past year have been
Marjorie Thompson, president, Edward Dahlsten, vice-president, June
Hobart, secretary, and Lois Studlien, treasurer. Other members are
Earl Wunderlich and Luetta Knebel, seniors, Gerald Johnson, Darwyn

To those members of the faculty who have struggled for three
years to impart to us, some of their Wealth of knowledge, We wish to ex-
tend our heartiest thanks and especially to those who have acted as our
advisers do we Wish to show our appreciation.
Lawrence Reck has been more than successful in his position
as financial adviser of the senior class, but We will remember him
chiefly for his amiable smile and continuous good nature.
Enthusiastic co-operation in all the senior activites has been
shown by Miss Adelle Jarchow, member of the faculty and senior class
adviser. Miss Jarchow did much toward making the junior-senior prom
Although Bill Williams has been a member of the faculty for
only two years he has won the hearts of all the seniors. Mr. Williams
coached the basketball team which achieved such great success this year.
He also took a prominent part in the planning of the prom.

As the time of graduation draws near and we have come to the
parting of the ways, it is well to remember that the plains are past and
yonder lie the hills. May we never he satisfied until we have reached the
summit. This can only he achieved hy putting forth our very best effort

Let our aim he high and let us never he satisfied with anything

National Honor Society
.K - fit,
The highest goal toward which every student of this highs ' j
school strives is to become a member of the National Honor Society.
This is the highest honor bestowed on any student. The aim of the Na- 45 V'
tional Honor Society is to develop scholarship, leadership, character, and-
Fifteen per cent of the senior class are admitted to this society,
five per cent being taken in at the end of the junior year, and the other
ten per cent being taken in during the senior year. To be eligible for this
society, a student must be in the upper one-third of his class and fulfill
the four qualifications for membership: scholarship, leadership, charac-
ter, and service.
On April 3, 1936, the following became members of the Na-
tional Honor Society: Doris Larson, who is now president, Lois Stud-
lien, vice-president, Marjorie
treasurer and Kathryn Brown.

- For the first time in the history of Alexandria, all three divi-
sions in the local declamatory contest were won by sophomores. Helen
Marie Backlin participated in the dramatic division, Peter Unumb in
the humorous, and Glenn Reuter in the oratorical.
These same people won the sub-district contest held in the
local high school. In the district meet, Helen Marie Backlin's selec-
tion, The Monkey's Paw , and Glenn Reuter's oration, Whither
World placed second in their respective divisions.
Peter Unumb, who gave the selection, Exit The Big Bad
Wolf Won Hrst in the district and also in the regional. Winning in
the regional contest held at Staples, gave Peter the privilege of going to
the state contest.
Miss Esther Gould, the dramatic instructor, efficiently coach-
ed the contestants.
K. Westerheld, W. Woolliscroft, Mr. Logan, L. Peterson, F. Herzog
This year a different plan, that of extemporaneous speaking
in debate was carried out in connection with the present day question,
Resolved: That all electric utilities should be governmentally own-
ed and operated.
In the inter-class tournament held on January '27 the victor-
ious Senior class was awarded the Kiwanis cup. Members of the sen-
ior teams were Frances Renner, Winfred Vfoolliscroft, Vernon Coy-
kendall, and Francis Herzog.
Winfred Woolliscroft and Francis Herzog on the negative
side and Kathryn Westerield and Lyman Peterson on the' affirmative
side were chosen to constitute the high school team.
Under the competent guidance of K. Otto Logan this year's
team, which did not begin work until much later than in previous years,
won the district title and entered the regional debate.
Alexandria secured the district title by defeating the Kensing-
ton and Cyrus teams both by 3 to 0 decisions. Later they lost the re-
gional debate to the Moorhead State Teachers' College High School
which had a very strong team.
In preparation for the regional tournament, debates were held
between the two sides of the local team and a practice debate was held

A. H. -S. BAND
This year has been a most progressive and inspiring one for
the band section of the Alexandria High School. It has become one of
the greatest assets to the school. Under the capable direction of Mr.
Arentsen the military and concert bands have provided entertainment
not only at football games, but at basketball games as well. Regular
concerts are played at the City Park during the summer months.
The band is divided up into four different organizations: Be-
ginner's Band, Second Band, Military Band, and che Concert Band.
The senior members of the band are Pearl Barr, Vernon Bur-
gess,'Sidney Carlson, june Fleming, Florence Froemming, Jean Harrison,
June johnson, Doris Larson, Robert Patton, Marjorie Thompson and
THE MUSIC CONTEST
The music contest this year was held in Glenwood on April
23 and 24.
This year's rating was determined on a much lower scale than
previous years, as a consequence the marks of the various organizations
were much lower. This does not mean that the groups this year were
infe 'or to those of last, but simply that the judges were much stricter.
' 1 The ratings of the various groups were as follows: ,
- Senior High Girls' Glee Club ......................... A

Some of the small organizations which have been growing dur-
ing the past few years are: the girls' sextette, girls' trio, mixed octet, and
the boys, quartet, string quartet, brass quartet, and woodwind quintet.
These groups make up the chamber music of our department.
Doris Christopherson, Catherine Peterson, and Marcella
Grube compose the girls' trio. The boys' quartet is made up of Lyman
Peterson, Leighton Knudson, Woodrow Mathiason, and Sidney Carl-
son. In the girls, sextet are: Doris Christopherson, Doris Larson, Bet-
ty Wegener, Lois Roth, Frances Renner, and Catherine Peterson. The
mixed octet is composed of Earl Wunderlich, Clyde Peterson, Lyman

quartet. In the woodwind quintet are Doris Larson, Dawn Ripley,
Deloris Wilkes, Kathryn Westerfield, and Mary Preston.
CHIMES OF NORMANDY
The music department and stage force under the leadership of
Harold W. Arentsen and Gordon B. Melby presented Robert Plan-
quette,s comic opera, Chimes of Normandy , on December 3.
The talented leads along with the skilled orchestra and well-
trained choruses in colorful costumes all co-operated to make this pro-
duction a success.
Mr. Leland Wright as a simple country Hsherman called Gren-
icheux and Miss Gretchen Stieler as Serpolette, a village peasant with fan-
tastic ideas, added much hilarity to the opera.
Other leads sung by Miss Eunice Ann McCart as Germaine,
Clifford Rykken as Henri, Theodore Ording as the old miser, Gaspard,
Karl Nordgaard as notary, and Karl Kolstad as the Bailli, were excellent.
Students who took minor parts in the opera were Marcella
Grube as Jeanne, Marion Hanson as Nanette, Lois Roth as Suzanne,
Frances Renner as Gertrude, and Leighton Knudson as the Registrar.
To Gordon Melby and his stage force, with Kathryn Brown
and Vernon Burgess as managers, goes much credit for the beautiful
lighting effects and artistic scenery.

1 ' DRUM CORPS
- Since its organization in 1929, the Drum Corps has become
widely known in both Minnesota and surrounding states. Under the
efficient leadership of Harold Arentsen, it has gained a widespread rep-
utation for its skillful playing.
The corps consists of twenty-nine girls: a drum major, twelve
snare drummers, two base drummers, ten tenor buglers, two base bug-
lers and the cymbal players.
In addition to their street drills, the girls also have eleven other
Besides performing on many different occasions, the corps
sponsored a moving picture, The Garden of Allah . They also had
several food sales and in January gave their annual banquet and dance
for alumni members. Members who graduated in the preceding spring
were awarded medals as symbol of their work.
Graduating members of this organization are: Pearl Barr,
drum major, June Fleming, June Hobart, June Johnson, Doris Larson,
Bernadine McArdell, Myrtle Newhouse, Catherine Peterson, Marjorie
Thompson, and Viola Wagner.
MUSIC POINT SYSTEM
Last year the music department adopted a new system of com-
parative rating whereby a student who takes part in musical activities is
credited with a certain number of honor points.
The total points earned at the end of the year, bestow upon
the student an A, B, C, or D rating. These points are given for mem-
bership, co-operation, attendance, and condition of instrument. Points
are deducted for such things as poor attitude, slow progress, unexcused
absence or tardiness, and untidy uniform.
At the end of the individual's school years, he is given a spe-
cial award if he has maintained an A rating.
This new system has proven very satisfactory in that it has
created a greater interest in music among the students.

The stage force under the supervision of Gordon B. Melby,
has been managed by Kathryn Brown and Vernon Burgess. Betty
Nichols, Marcella Beheng, Vivian Peterson and Dawn Ripley are re-
sponsible for all designing and decorating. The boys responsible for the
construction and lighting effects are Winfred Woolliscroft, Glenn
Berglin, Boyd Bergsten, and Robert Westerberg.
The objective this year was obtained in the three complete
scenes for the opera, The Chimes of Normandy .
The stage force develops its scenes in the same manner as used
by professional stage designers such as gathering historical data, and col-
oring ideas for interiors and exteriors. From this data drawings and
diagrams are made to fit our stage. The scene is then modeled in ex-
act miniature of one inch to the foot. This model is tried on the mini-
ature stage to overcome mechanical difficulties, to get correct dimensions,
and to acquire correct lighting effects. After these various difficulties are
overcome and corrected, the sections of the scene or jogs are construct-
ed. These are then covered and painted. The scenes are made in three
dimensions and therefore are heavy and diffcult to handle. When the
scene is set up, all jogs are matched and lights are tested. Each color of
the light produces a certain mood in the minds of the actors and audi-
ence. Correct lighting effects are essential together with furniture
and other properties which constitute the finishing of the scene.

istant has had charge of the library one night each week. To create
more interest in reading, the group has made attractive the bulletin

With the abandonment of spring football this year many husky
gridders turned to the cinder paths, swelling the ranks of Coach Has-
tings' track squad with an abundance of fine prospects.
Besides these muscle men, Hastings had five returning letter-
men headed by Captain Leonard Olson, and some new men for a total
squad of seventeen. The following boys were members of the team:
Captain Leonard Olson, Reuben Hogan, Rollance Verkennis, Earl Wun-
derlich, Eugene Johnson, Russell Krafthefer, Freddie Krafthefer, Vern-
on Burgess, Donald Chase, Otis Prinkey, Eldo Falk, Alfred Dobberpuhl,
Jack Wardell, Bob Patton, Carroll Youngner, William Slipper, and
With daily workouts at the fairgrounds and at the athletic
field the boys slowly rounded into shape. Alex played host to Osakis
and Sauk Centre in a triple meet and proved to be far superior by scor-
ing firsts in all but two or three events to win by an overwhelming mar-
g There has been only one running at the time of this writing,
but Coach Hastings has a couple more lined up, including one with St.

Eldo Falk, and Alfred Dobberpuhl, together
with new material, worked into a mighty ma- g
chine that swept through a heavy schedule with 1
a great record of seven victories against one loss, l
finishing second in the big six conference. Much
of the success of our team was due to the fine
coaching of Harold Hastings, and to the inspiration provided by receiv-
ing new red and black silk uniforms.
In the opening game of the season played on the local field on
September 18, the Red and Black emerged victorious over a powerful
Mechanic Arts team from St. Paul when Bob Patton, quarterback, took
the ball on fourth down and drove through from the three yard line for
the only score of the game to give Alexandria a 6-0 victory.
On September 25, the Alexians journeyed to Sauk Centre
where they defeated the small but stubborn Main Streeters by a score of
15-0. Alfred Dobberpuhl was shifted to the fullback position in place
of Godfrey, who was out with injuries, and made some nice gains, in-
cluding a touchdown run.
The strong Little Falls eleven was the next obstacle in the path
of the onrushing Red and Black, but were vanquished in a furious game
of give and take. Urness' great pass catching was too much for the
Millers and they were forced to take the short end of a 13-0 count.
Our arch rival, Glenwood, came over to play the locals on Oc-
tober 9 and were administered a crushing 32-0 defeat as Alex collected
its fourth consecutive victory. Godfrey and Falk ran wild in this en-
counter, time and again they broke through the line and dashed past
the bewildered Glenwood secondary for long gains. Alexandria kept
possession of the famous bell trophy which they won last year.

The following Friday, the Red and Black annexed their fifth
triumph in a 26-0 rout of Staples on their own held. Godfrey, Falk,
Schultz and Sturnick ran all over the held as the powerful Alex line
punched huge gaps in Staples' forward wall. Schultz made a sensational
sixty-yard run, reversing his field and speeding to a touchdown which
won him the block award as the best player in the game.
Seeking its sixth victory, Alexandria was finally upset by a
great Brainerd team in a heartbreaking game which ended 13-12 for the
Northerners. Unable to gain through Alex,s stonewall line defense,
Brainerd took to the air and paved its way to victory by completing nine
passes in twelve attempts. Alex matched them in touchdowns, but was
unable to convert either of its tries for extra point-hence the defeat.
Hastings' men topped off Alex,s homecoming celebration with
a thrilling victory over the formidable Tigers of St. Cloud in one of the
greatest games ever witnessed in the local enclosure. It was the last game
of Keith Godfrey's great four year football career at Alexandria High,
and he made it a memorable one by breaking loose for two touchdowns
in the last few minutes of the final quarter to pull Alex from behind and
win 19-12. Urness, Falk, Peterson, and Patton were other Alexians who
ended their playing days with this contest, and all gave a good account of
themselves. It was Alex's first win over Tech in ten years.
The Red and Black had two more games scheduled but Wadena for-
feited and heavy snows prevented Aitkin from coming, so the locals
wound up the season with a record of seven games won and one lost, shut-
ting out six teams without a score. Alexandria's tricky forward and later-
al passing brought much praise from local fans.

Confronted with the seemingly impossible taslfof molding a
winning basketball team out of nothing as the cage season rolled around,
Coach Bill Wfilliams went earnestly to work with what he had and came
up with the most amazing team in local history.
Among the candidates at the initial drill the only returning
regular was Captain Gayhard Urnessg although Karl Sturnick, Vince
Ifiala, and Selvin Zabel had seen some action the previous year. The
rest were new and inexperienced, and the outlook was very dark indeed.
ln spite of it all, Wfilliams with his masterful coaching and
the matehless lighting spirit which he instilled in the team, whipped into
shape a quintet that rang up nine consecutive victories, and carried the
Red and Black as far as it has ever gone in the basketball wars.
ia r r'efa
While using mostly set plays on the offense, Coach Williams
developed the famed, impregnable man for man defense that stopped
the strongest quints in this area, and became a veritable legend as Alex
defeated team after team of its opponents.
In its regular season's record of 15 won and S lost the Alexians
boast triumphs over the pick of twin city and upstate teams, which in-
cludes Marshall of Minneapolis, Washington of St. Paul, Brainerd, Sta-
ples, Little Falls, and St. Cloud Tech.
Alexandria copped its fourth district title out of the last ive
tournaments by outshooting Long Prairie and Sauk Centre in the pre-
liminaries and then romping over Upsala 46-17 in the finals. Advanc-
ing to the regional at Wadena they became the fourth Alex team ever
to reach the region finals when they handed the formidable Benson Plow-
boys their first defeat in 21 starts by a score of 26 to 23. Alex bowed
to the speedy Crosby-lronton ballhawks in the finals, but were well sat-
isiied with their record-breaking season of 19 wins to only 6 reverses.
Alex cagers who will receive letters are Geyhard Urness, Vin-
cent Fiala, Keith Godfrey, Selvin Zabel, Karl Sturnick, Lloyd Peterson,
Elmer Sherlin, and Edward Carlson.

Out of this large group of husrling hopefuls Melby chose a
squad of 19 to advance the Alex baseball standard. His task was made
easier by the return of five lettermen--Captain Eldo Falk, Howard Max,
Lloyd Peterson, Dean Melton and Geyhard Urness, and che fact that the

The Cardinals showed a little improvement in the next set-to
with Parkers Prairie, but lost 12-8. Howard Max blasted out a triple,
single and double, but it wasn't enough to make up for the many field-
ing miscues by his mates.
Settling down behind Dean Melton's scintillating shut-out
pitching, the locals belted three Benson flingers for eleven runs and bagged
their first victory 11-0.
Playing with greater confidence after breaking into the win
column, Melby's men trounced Brandon 6-1. Urness, on the hill for
Alex was greeted with a double and single by the first two batters, but
clamped down to pitch no-hit ball the rest of the way.
On the whole, this year's team seems to be well balanced. lt
is strong in pitching and catching and has lots of spirit. Melby knows
how to handle a ball club and it is a safe bet that he will pilot this one
to the championship. The schedule, the longest ever lined up for an
Alex team, calls for 10 games yet to be played.

Juniors who exhibited wonderful team Work in both their games.
In the first round of play, the Seniors were defeated by the

juniors continued their victory by swamping the Sophomores by a score
of 25-16. The Seniors retaliated in the last game by winning over the
