DEDICATION To you---Whose interest and co-operation have aided in making the 1938 Alexian a reality---We dedicate this book. WE PRESENT-- Faoulty Personalities Book l Eall Book ll Winter Book lll Spring Student Personalities FACULTY PERSQNALITIES 1 The concluding chapter to the history of the class of 1938 is heing written. This is a story of struggle and sacrifice. It is a story of work, play, and achievement. One finds here records of lost opportun- ities, and it hecomes a story not only of success and satisfaction, hut one of fail- ure and disappointment. In short, this is a story of life itself. The record which the class of 1938 shall make in life, will, in all prohahility, differ very little from the one which it is completing now. Individuals may vary, some may do better, others not as well-hut in the main, your future per- formance will not ,differ greatly from your past. I hope that all of you shall he ahle to improve and to make a valuahle con- trihution to life, and in turn, may you enjoy your fair share of the good things which life has to offer. H. N. Peterson Superintendent The world presents many prohlems 1 which the members of the class of 1938 must help to solve. The world needs men and women who have the knowledge to apply to these prohlems, who are will- ing to give their services to their solu- tion, who have the character to stand for the right, and who can either provide the leadership for the attack on the proh- lems or have the intelligence to follow such a leader. The challenge is yours, Seniors. May you meet it in the same fine spirit with which you have mas- tered the prohlems of the past three years. My good wishes and those of our faculty are with you. F.

Nelson Miss Krauss, member of the faculty, and Senior Class adviser, showed marked ability in her coaching of last year's Junior class play, "Where's Peter?". She has acted as a faithful servant to all high school activities and her pleasing personality has been implanted into the hearts and minds of this yearls graduates. Although Mr. Logan has been quite shy in expressing his view- points, we can readily see that he has been one of the most influential advisers any class could possess. With his sociable character and his unlimited amount of work with the debate team, Mr. Logan will always serve as a guiding light to the up and coming seniors. For his unsurpassing intelligence along che scientific lines, for his work With the baseball team, and for his efficient work in transmitting his knowledge of stage scenery and set ups to the Stage force, Mr. Melby will always be remembered for his splendid co-operation as a class adviser. Miss Nelson, adviser of the Alexian staH, probably did the most to make the first Junior-Senior prom a success. The Senior class is Very grateful to her for her undying friendship to her students and for her art in establishing a greater commercial department into the high school. We, the members of the Senior class, feel that a hearty thanks should be extended to the members of the faculty and especially to the class advisers. May we, as individuals, take this opportunity of showing our appreciation to you for your patience in dealing with us during our high school days.

SECOND ROW-Richard Olson, Anton Pilversack, Gerald Johnson, Harry Halstead, Frank Blanchard, Lyman Peterson, Martin Munson, F. J. Herda. Under the able guidance of F. J. Herda, the Student Council has been an active organization and has carried on successfully the duties of a governing body for the Alexandria High School. Planning and controlling the point system, regulating hall traffic, and choosing lyceum and auditorium programs are included in the activities of the council. Representatives to the annual convention of the Northwest Federation of Student Councils at Stillwater were Kathryn Westerfeld and Gerald Johnson. Dorothy Seed, Harry Halstead, and Lyman Pe- terson also attended the convention as unofficial delegates. The council sponsored the "Alex Hi-Larities" on January 20, the program being built around AleXandria's Ragtime Band. The fourth annual "Have a Heart" campaign was conducted by the council the week of February 14. The purpose of this drive was to provide a fund for needy students. This yearis officers have been Gerald Johnson, president, Kathryn Westerfeld, vice presidentg Dorothy Seed, secretary, and Ly- man Peterson, treasurer. Other members have been Kathleen Kiger and Harry Halstead, seniors, Genevieve Gustafson, Margaret Griffith, Tony Pilversack, and Richard Olson, juniors, and Doris Melin, Warren Christopherson, Frank Blanchard, and Martin Munson, sophomores.

The Alexandria football eleven composed of eight seniors and three underclassmen played a bangup schedule this season. The first opponent encountered was the formidable Alumni, who found to their amazement they couldn't score on the fighting Alex- ian eleven and consequently the best they could do was keep the varsity from scoring. The outcome of the battle was a scoreless tie with the team showing much promise. Another pre-season game was against the classy Johnson High School that also ended in a scoreless tie. Johnson High was favored to win by a large margin, but was held in check. Captain Sturnick got off a punt in the third quarter which traveled 90 yards and was hailed as the greatest kick ever made on the Alex field. Cn September 24, a mighty Staples eleven downed Alex in their initial season game, handing the Red and Black their first confer- ence defeat by the score 13-6. An outstanding play in the tilt that gave Alex their one and only touchdown consisted of a reverse from Sturnick to Prinkey, who ran 38 yards through the opposition only to be tackled within a few yards of the goal and thus leaving the task of scoring to his teammate Sturnick. The first of October found the Cardinals on their first road trip to St. Cloud. Matching brains With the brawn of the Graniters, Alex was again defeated by one touchdown, the score being 12-6.

Upon the completion of the high school in 1930 and the addi- tion of a larger auditorium, there was a need for an organization that would be responsible for all stage settings, designing, and decorating. The first stage force was organized under the supervision of Mr. G. B. Melby with Everett Drummond as manager. As years passed, better class plays were chosen, and classic operas were produced. Each year the stage force determined to improve its work until today the Alexan- dria High School has the reputation of having the most elaborate scenery and lighting effects of any High School in the state. Small models are made for all productions. In this Way the right perspectives are measured and all difficulties in lighting and color are overcome. The scenery is made in jogs and fitted together to com- plete the scene. In late years huge double jogs have been made and painted on both sides, having one scene painted on one side and a second scene painted on the reverse side. The many tricky lighting effects are part of the scenery. This year the stage force, under the management of Gordon B. Melby has been co-managed by Dawn Ripley and Bob Westerberg. Other members are, Seniors: Eunice Anderson, Viola Burgess, Betty Nichols, and Vivian Peterson. Juniors: Gladys Brown, Bob Bondus, and Rudolph Siira. Sophomores: Warren Christopherson.

Perhaps the rain added to effectiveness of Alexandria's passing and running attack. Alex made eleven first downs to St. Cloud's ten. The next game, on October 8, Alex easily outclassed their arch rivals, Glenwood. Scoring at will the Alex first team ran up a formid- able score, after which the second and third teams finished the game. Standouts in this game were Karl Sturnick and Otis Prinkey. October 15 th Alexandria traveled to Little Falls, returning as victors with a score of 26-0. Prinkey opened the scoring on the first play that Alex had the ball and ran 5 S yards for a touchdown. Alex completely riddled Little Falls the last quarter. In this game, Sturnick, intercepting a pass on his goal line ran 100 yards for a touchdown. In the following game held October 22 on the local Held, Alex clashed with a hitherto undefeated Brainerd team. The Bunyanites proved too strong and defeated the locals by a score of 13-0. One touch- down came by an Alex fumble on the goal line. The game was well played with both teams putting up a strong defense. Alex proved superiors in the next encounter by defeating a strong Crosby-Ironton team 13-7. Outclassed in every department, Alex had to rely on trick plays to win. Alex used many laterals ef- fectively during the game. The passing and punting of Sturnick as well as the elusive running of Donnie Schultz was noteworthy. November S the local high playing a whale of a game defeated Sauk Centre 39-12. Alex pulled every trick play possible and had the spectators in an uproar from start to finish. During the last few min- utes of play Sauk Centre scored several touchdowns against the third and fourth teams. Thus, it is well to note that two of the three Alex defeats were by two undefeated teams. Credit for the successful season goes to Coach Hastings as well as the boys.

Band The music department this year, as usual, provided an excellent military band and marching band, each under the direction of Mr. Harold Arentsen. Loren Olson acted as drum major for the seventy- two piece marching band and this organization drew much favorable comment for their formations between the halves of home football games. Seniors who graduate from the band this year are Ruth Bartz, Irene Erickson, Melba Hanson, Donald Holmquist, Yvonne Hustad, Harold Kiehne, Leighton Knudson, Russell Krafthefer, Darwyn Olsen, Dawn Ripley, Ralph Thornton, Alyce Wald, and Kathryn Westerfeld. Operetta A magnificent combination of the orchestra, supplemented by additional experienced musicians from Alexandria and neighboring towns, and the mixed chorus, together with various other talented in- dividuals, made "The Student Prince" the most successful annual op- eretta presented in recent years. The orchestra was under the expert direction of Mr. H. W. Arentsen and Miss Gretchen Stieler was in charge of the chorus. Gretchen Stieler, who took the lead as Kathie, and Leland Wright, playing opposite her as Karl Franz, portrayed their respective roles with characteristic excellence. Four students took leading parts: Marcelyn Stoppel, as the Duchess, Darwyn Olsen, as Lucas, Lyman Peterson, as Detlefg and Leighton Knudson, as Van Asterberg, all showed unusual acting ability.

Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief Ralph Thornton and Associate Editor Dorothy Seed, the staff of the "Alex High Timesv, a bi-weekly school newspaper, successfully finished its fifteenth year of publication. One of the notable innovations which made its appearance in the paper this year was the "streamlined" form of make-up. Several staff members attended the Minnesota Press Associa- tion Convention at the University where they attended classes on jour- nalism. Later, several copies of the paper were submitted to the Na- tional Scholastic Press Association Critical Service from which the "Alex High Timesu received a first class rating. Kathryn Westerfeld managed the business department with Bette Sather as broadway columnist and Kathleen Kiger as circulation manager. Gerald Johnson served as Sports Editor until a heavy load of activities forced him to give up the position which was filled by Roy Heinecke. Dennis Nelson was in charge of editorials. Other seniors on the staff included Marcelyn Stoppel, Andrea Wick, Yvonne Hustad, Merlin Roth, and Janet Anderson, reportersg Edward Fiala, Elsa Monagle, Irene Erickson, and Geraldine Skoglund, typists.

"Activity" was the symbol used by the Sigma Beta Phi girls during the past year. Knitting, dancing, dinner parties, needlecraft, social, and helpful work illed its calendar. The Beta club this year attained the membership of eighteen girls. Each girl must have had at least seven points before she was con- sidered. Officers for 1937-1938 were Kathryn Westerfeld, president, Bette Sather, vice president, Marcelyn Stoppel, secretary-treasurer. Other seniors in the organization were: janet Anderson, Lucille Brueske, Irene Erickson, Kathleen Kiger, Meryl Hanson, Yvonne Hustad, Dawn Ripley, Dorothy Seed, Verona Streu, Andrea Wick, and Alyce Wald. Miss Ardell Stull and Miss Elizabeth Paulucci were advisors. J !

Nelson Debate FIRST ROW-John Unumb, Kathryn Westerfeld, Gladys Coykendahl. SECOND ROW-Mr. Logan, Lyman Peterson. In the interclass debate tournament this year, the Senior teams were again victorious. Merlin Roth, Ralph Thornton, Kathryn Wes- terfeld, and Lyman Peterson comprised the Senior teams. John Unumb, Gladys Coykendall, Kathryn Westerfeld, and Lyman Peterson were chosen to represent the school in debate. The squad was fortunate in having the opportunity of attend- ing a large debate clinic at Moorhead early in the season and later in attending another tournament at Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis. Alexandria automatically won the District debate crown when other schools in this district did not produce competition. In regional competition, Moorhead S. T. C.

Girls of the class of 1938 made a record when they won the girls' inter-class tournament for the second consecutive year. In the first round of the Senior game, the Senior girls eked out a victory over the Juniors by a score of 35 to 23. In their second game they came back strong and trounced the Sophomores 34 to 21 for the title. The Juniors gained second place by virtue of their victory over the Sopho- mores. Seniors on the team were: Eunice Anderson, Janet Anderson, Florence Hirshey, Isabelle Platto, guards, Irene Erickson, Eavis Holm- berg, Phyllis Morse, and Betty Nichols, forwards. Mrs. Hastings coached the championship team. i Twenty-six 6 ...N ,MI I Debate FIRST ROW-John Unumb, Kathryn Westerfeld, Gladys Coykendahl, SECOND ROW-Mr. Logan, Lyman Peterson. In the interclass debate tournament this year, the Senior teams were again victorious. Merlin Roth, Ralph Thornton, Kathryn Wes- terfeld, and Lyman Peterson comprised the Senior teams. John Unumb, Gladys Coykendall, Kathryn Westerfeld, and Lyman Peterson were chosen to represent the school in debate. The squad was fortunate in having the opportunity of attend- ing a large debate clinic at Moorhead early in the season and later in attending another tournament at Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis. Alexandria automatically Won the District debate crown when other schools in this district did not produce competition. In regional competition, Moorhead S. T. C.

Twenty-three y Declamatory Helen Marie Backlin, Miss Lee, Glenn Reuter, Peter Unumb. This year three Juniors represented Alexandria in the sub- district and district declamatory contests, two of them going on to the regional contest and then to the state contest. It is noteworthy that these same three declaimers placed high last year also in declamatory work. In the sub-district contest Helen Marie Backlin placed first in the dramatic division with the selection "A Toast We Can Drink," and Glenn Reuter in the oratorical division with the oration, "The Supreme Menacef, while Peter Unumb won in the humorous division with the selection "David Garrick". Helen Marie Backlin and Glenn Reuter won first places in the district contest also, and received plaques for winning the regional contest. Never before has Alexandria had two contestants in a state declamatory contest. Helen Marie Backlin and Glenn Reuter, accom- panied by Miss Lee went to Minneapolis to compete in the state contest. Twenty-fom' s CX B gas. ,ri i X -vs:-i 'Six wt X f Dramatics w Xixx " 'A DRAMATIC CLUB G, A The Dramatic Club is an organization for the purpose of giv- ing inexperienced students a chance at directing, acting, make-up, cos- tume and stage Work. The Club is to present a series of one-act plays during the year. The proceeds of the productions are to be used to obtain a mem- bership in the Thespian Society and also for make-up materials and costumes. Due to the fact of late organization, the club produced only two one-act plays which were called "Romancers", directed by Edward Fiala, and "Will O' the Wisp,', directed by Marcelyn Stoppel-both which proved very successful. In the future years, we hope the Dramatic Club continues to grow and become more successful! EXTEMPORANEOUS SPEAKING Extemporaneous speaking, after having lain idle for a year, was again revived in Alexandria this spring. Since the district in which Alexandria is classed did not have a meet, the Staples district invited us to send two participants to enter their meet. Gerald Johnson and Ken- neth Melin were chosen as representatives of Alexandria. ' The general topic chosen for discussion was "Labor." During the weeks prior to the meet the participants, under the guidance of K. Otto Logan, collected and studied information on all phases of the topic. An hour before they were scheduled to give their talks they drew two topics from a list of approximately eighty, and on one they prepared a talk. Miss Ethel Tainter of the Moorhead Teachers College, who is an authority in this line was selected as critic. This meet was non-com- petitive and after the talks were over she gave criticisms on each speaker and his speech. The constructive criticisms were of great value to the participants. Miss Tainter expressed her opinion that this non-com- petitive extemporaneous form of speaking is on its way up and in the future shall supplant the present forms. Twenty-tive 1, x, rig ' E . w l .

Bill Williams, Alex basketball coach for the past three years, was given the hardest assignment of the year when Alex drew one of the toughest schedules in the history of the school. Coach Williams built this year's team around Vince Fiala and Karl Sturnick, co-captains and the two returning regulars. Karl was honored with a guard berth on the mythical All- Regional team a year ago, and looked good enough to repeat this year. Vince who was a regular for the preceding two years, is one of the smartest basketball players we have seen for a long time. His grad- uation this year will leave a very large gap for Coach Williams to fill next year. The season, to some, would not seem a success, but when all points are considered, it doesn't exactly look like a failure to us. Those who made letters this year are: Karl Sturnick, Vince Fiala, Bob Jensen, Otis Prinkey, captain-elect, Donald Schultz, Bernard Eckman, John McCabe, John Peterson, and Lloyd Erickson. The last five will return next year. Twenty-seven Winter Calendar Dec. 3--Basketball season opened with Parkers Prairie game. Dec. 12--Thursday--a speedy get-away to a grand Christmas vacation.

Eighteen members of the Senior class and six Juniors have received this honor by fulfilling the four quali- fications upheld by this society for membership, namely: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. To be eligible for this Honor Society one must also be in the upper third of his class scholastically. Five Seniors were admitted on May 18, 1937, during their Junior year, they are: Gerald Johnson, now the president, Lyman Peter- son, vice-presidentg Harry Halstead, secretaryg Darwyn Olsen, treas- urer, and Kathryn Westerfeld. On October 15, 1937, the following five Seniors became mem- bers of the National Honor Society: Wa1'ren Froemming, Dorothy Seed, Marcelyn Stoppel, Ralph Thornton, and Andrea Wick.

Each year the Drum Corps tours some part of the country, last year traveling through part of South Dakota and putting on exhibitions in various towns in Minnesota. They also played for special events in Alexandria. There are twenty-nine girls in this organization, namely, ten snare drummers, two base drummers, ten tenor buglers, two bass buglers, two cymbal players, and a recent addition--two Scotch bagpipe players.

By this system each music student is given a certain number of points for attendance, condition of instruments, progress made, co-op- eration and membership in chamber groups. At the end of the school year each student receives an A, B, C, or D rating, based upon the number of honor points received. Those maintaining an A average throughout their school years receive special awards at the close of the senior year. Thirty-three RAGTIME BAND One of the most popular organizations, noted around the com- munity for its execution of "swing", is concluding its second very suc- cessful year. The band is under the baton of Darwyn Olsen, and is capably supervised by Mr. Herda and Mr. Arentsen. After playing at numerous Carnivals, revues, and assembly programs, the band purchased handsome new uniforms, consisting of white mess jackefs with black trousers or skirts, and maroon ties and sashes. J Along with their soloist, Lyman Peterson, the group amused audiences with their entertaining skits and musical numbers. They performed at several surrounding communities, including Marshall, Osakis, and Henning. The members are Loren Olson, Gene Johnson, Kathryn Wes- terfeld, Deloris Wilkes, Anton Pilversack, Bernard Ekman, Leighton Knudson, Joe Thornton, Dawn Ripley, Donald Holmquist, and Ralph Thornton. SCHOOL PATROL Safety is the object of every member of the school patrol. Patrol members are under the direction of Forrest Willey, and Wesley Wesen is Patrol Chief. These patrol members are stationed at various corners and intersections to aid pupils coming to and from school. Members of the School Patrol are Richard Hintzen, Ellsworth Love, Marvin Erickson, Marvin Landeen, james Swenson, Oscar Sorum, Douglas Oppel, Robert Flanagan, Robert Rairdin, Harold Peterson, Richard Stevens, Kieth Jackson, and Donald Ellertson. The benefit basketball game, sponsored by the School Patrol, showed a large profit and this money will be used to send six or seven members to the School Patrol camp next June.

Thirty-five Baseball FIRST ROW-Warren Yunker, Richard Hintzen, Karl Sturnick, Robert Jensen, Darwyn Olsen, Marvin Feda, Werner Pearson, Allard Lundgren, Otis Prinkey. SECOND ROW-Coach Melby, Harold Pederson, Robert Tessmer, Richard Olson, Warren Froemming, Vernon Lindquist, Lloyd Erickson, Robert Englund, Dean Melton, Ralph Jacobson, Howard Max. Baseball seems to have hit a new high this year, for an unusual- ly large number of anxious rookies were out at the beginning of the season. Out of the fifty some boys Coach Melby had the task of picking 19 to work with the rest of the season, however, he was very fortunate in having the aid of 7 lettermen to build his team around. Otis Prinkey and John Peterson returned to the outfield, Karl Sturnick, Bob Jensen and Warren Yunker are back playing in the infield, Rich- ard Olson and Dean Melton, captain this year, composed a strong battery. In the Hrst of the 13 game schedule which was with Little Falls, here, turned out very close. The local boys iinally emerged with a victory, 2-1. In the game with Brandon, Melton brought the team a 3-0 victory. By a score of 11-0, the Cardinals showed some improvement in the Sauk Centre game. The Evansville game ended with a score 4-0. Dean was on the mound for Alex. The locals had a new experience in the Glenwood game. While Olson was on the hill the Glenwood nine found it difficult to get any hits. During the fourth inning the Glenwood nine, in an effort to acquire some runs resorted to bunting. They brought in three runs before the locals found themselves. However ,the Alex boys held their lead of two points and the game ended S-3, the Cardinals again victor- ious. There are still eight games to be played, and the future looks bright as the ball club seems to be very well balanced, and they show fine spirit this year. Thirty-six J 1 I 'X li' f i -li viii-7.' . f, I an ENR pf A, X li ii iii erik xl 'Track Y l X X ' wi ' W U i i Y . With the advent of an early spring season, Coach Hastings' call for track candidates was answered by a number of boys with ten returning lettermen. Captain Hogan, last year's star, again headed the tracksters. Other returning lettermen were: Gene Johnson, Donald Chase, Russell Krafthefer, Donald Schultz, William Sliper, Otis Prinkey, Verner Jo- sephs, and Rollance Verkennis. Alex district winners last year under the skilled coaching of Hastings, showed their determination to repeat and eclipse previous performances by the enthusiasm shown in the daily workouts. The Al- exandrians also proved victors in two triple meets last year. One of these was held at St. John's College stadium where Alexandria, St. John's Prep School and Holdingford were represented and the other held here in Alexandria with Osakis, Sauk Centre, and Alexandria competing. The Alexians won the District 22 track meet at St. John's with 87 points, more than all the other schools combined. Hogan was h' point man of the meet and Krafthefer was seccpnglf lv , Tumblinghr W Thirty-seven Spring Calendar This quarter was one of festivity--it was the Spring quarter-- it should be gay. Spring is like that--so they tell us. April 8--Easter vacation--meant new bonnets to most of the feminine members of Senior High. April 29-30--Music contest at Glenwood--climax of the Work of all musical organizations for the year. May 12-13--Senior Class Play--"Seven Keys to Baldpaten. Very en- tertaining mystery. May 28--Junior Class reception for Seniors--lovely prom put on by the juniors for the graduating Seniors. May 29--Baccalaureate June 2--Commencement June 3--School year ends--The Work and play of another class is done. May they go out into the World with higher ideals and ambi- tions inspired by this high school. SPRING In that certain tirne of year When winter's on the wing, The teachers have good cause to fear A fever brought with Spring. The cold and icy hlasts are gone, Spring has come to stayg The Rohin ehirps in early inorn To greet a longer day. Flowers start to rear their heads, Children shout and singg While from within its wintry hed All nature turns to Spring. LORRAINE MOUNSDON Thirty-eight f ' ,LVL L ' K'A XUVV v 'i U, L" Lf' Af LJ.

We order and direct our executor hereinafter named, pay all our just debts and funeral expenses as soon after our demise as con- veniently may be. I, Dawn Ripley do devise and bequeath to Bob Westerberg the right of dictatorship over the stage force and also my old brush and paint pot. I, Katie Westerfeld, because I like them young, do leave a trail of broken hearts from the staff room to the Hrst grade room. We, Karl Sturnick and Vince Fiala, do pass on the torch of leadership of the basketball team to Donnie Schultz. I, Donald Lundgren, by making an exception to myself, do bequeath my old football jersey to some up and coming scrub. We, members of the Times staff, being of big heart, bequeath to Walt Eidem, our faithful janitor, all the paper in the staff room. It may come in handy for lighting fires and things. I, Ralph Thornton, leave to Roy Heinecke a somewhat di- lapidated heap of junk which used to pass as a drum outfit and the name "Satchelfoot', as applying to wild and Wooly drummers. I, Lyman Peterson, leave to John "Banjoeyes" Unumb, my old berth on the debate team and the right to be called "Windy." We, the Senior class as a Whole by violating the old practice of handing down our old seats in the assembly and the right to wear edu- cated looks and sit in the auditorium balcony, leave you such trifles as school dances, the faculty, leaky roofs, etc. Lastly, we constitute and appoint Shorty Olson, Junior class president, to be executor of this, our last will and testament. In testimony whereof we have subscribed our name and af- fixed our seal this first day of June, year of our Lord, 1938. Fifty-five 5-.gk IW 54. w'5'f'Qf a i . 7 X ' In Ed!! if 0-iff , ,7,, 1, ,y sf!
