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 Superintendent. 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 school year. 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 Olsen, Merlin Roth, Phyllis Peterson and Karl Sturnick, juniors, Mary Preston, Orley Tart, Elsie Carlson, and Genevieve Gustafson, sopho- mores. Nine is K was Mears as Class Advisers W. Williams A. Jarchow L. Reck X 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 a success. 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. Tell se K ?'Qf SENIORS Class Officers E. Dahlsben L. Studllen E.Wunderl1ch J. Hobart L. Knebel M. Thompson' x Fellow Seniors: 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 whether it he at work or at play. Let our aim he high and let us never he satisfied with anything hut the best. I f you have enjoyed our friendships as much as I have, these few years will never be forgotten.

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- service. 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. At the induction on senior class received this honor. topherson, and Edor Brostrom. At an impressive ceremony on May 18, 1937, the following were inducted into the National Honor Society: Sidney Carlson, Leon- ard johnson, Luctta Knebel, Ralph Max, Lois Roth, Viola Shogren, sen- iors and Harry Halstead, Gerald Johnson, Darwyn Olsen, Lyman Pe- terson, and Kathryn Westerneld, juniors.

Reuter - 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. Twenty-two 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 with Morris. Twenty-three M 0 . f fy l,.f'i 'f reg ?'efm Lag!

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 Viola Wagner. 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 Junior High Girls' Glee Club .............. .............

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 Peterson, Leighton Knudson, Catherine Peterson, Frances Renner, Doris Christopherson, and Doris Larson. Present members of the string quartet are Bernadine McAr- dell, Ruth Bartz, June Fleming, and Dennis Nelson. Darwyn Olsen, Sidney Carlson, Bob Patton and Russell Krafthefer compose the brass 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.

Twenty-nine re r 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 formations. 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. Thirty is r t':t2frs.M5ra ra if m 1. Betty Nichols, Vivian Peterson, Dawn Ripley, Marcella Beheng, Kathryn Brown, Bob Westerberg. Second Row--Vernon Burgess, Winfred Woolliscroft, Glenn Berglin, Boyd Bergsten, Mr. Melby. 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. Thirty-one -I 4 rj K r'ef Library Board Peter Unumb, Edor Brostrom, Lois Studlien, Marcella Grube, Genevieve Gustafson, Margaret Renner, Winifred Larson. Second Row--Miss McCart, Jean Harrison, Helen Baer, Betty Knutson. Under the direction of Miss Eunice Ann McCart, the library board consisting of eight girls and two boys has carried on the work in the school library the past year. Duties have included routine work before school and during study periods. Each senior member together with his sophomore as- istant has had charge of the library one night each week. To create more interest in reading, the group has made attractive the bulletin board display. Bronze, silver and gold pins for one, two and three years ser- vice are awarded the students of this organization. Seniors on the board are Edor Brostrom, Marcella Grube, Jean Harrison, and Lois Studlien. Sophomores who have assisted this past year are Helen Baer, Genevieve Gustafson, Betty Knutson, Winnifred Larson, Margaret Renner, and Peter Unumb, School Patrol "Safety First,', the slogan of the school patrol, has been effi- ciently carried out under the direction of Forrest Willey and patrol chief, Eldo Falk.

Williams J. Eheman F. Fabro G. Melby rlqraclz 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 Verner Josephs. 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- ln. 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. John's Prep. Thehdistrict meet will be held on Maw.

The lettermen, Keith Godfrey, Geyhard Urness, 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. Geyhard Urness 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. Thirty-Hve rr r'efaMx' , 5 I A . ,. 4 L!

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. Thirty-six as K Wea Lilwra ra rf at Bzlslzelhzlll ' J. 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. Thirty-seven 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.

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 entire battery, chief bulwark of last year's team, returned for another campaign. The initial encounter of a 14 game schedule was at Little Falls where the locals were blanked on three hits S-0. The purchasing of classy new baseball suits for this year's nine - 1 'X Q. 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. Thirty-nine W' rr r'efami' f Girls, Baslzetball Honors for the girls' interclass basketball were awarded to the Juniors who exhibited wonderful team Work in both their games. In the first round of play, the Seniors were defeated by the Juniors in a hard-fought game which ended with the score 33-25. 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 Sophomores 25-22. In former years the Seniors have shown a record to be proud of, having won the championship title three times, and capturing sec- ond place once. Miss Josephine Olson coached the Juniors, Miss Bertha Carl- son the Seniors, and Mrs. Harold Hastings the Sophomores. Miss Joy Eheman, physical education instructor, directed the tournament, while Forrest Willey was referee. Forty me K rea.
