How often we have proudly repeated these words during the last nine months! Only now, as we walk out the doors of our high school, as a student for the last time, do we realize how lucky we were to be able to say this. Our four years in high school have flown by and we have only memories left of our school days. As we look back now, the one- act play was a highlight in our freshman year. We got a funny but proud feeling to see our own friends and classmates on the stage before us, acting as we had seen it done in senior high. But our chance to be in senior high came fast, and it seems only a short time ago when we were hanging silver stars and blue crepe paper for the 1949 Christmas Dance. In our sophomore year our feeling of importance was great as we at- tended teen canteen, senior high auditoriums, and went to the school dances without a special invitation. The fall of 1950 again brought the Sadie Hawkins Dance. We used dogpatch characters in huge frames for the decorations, drawn and painted by the artists of the class. Taking part in Hilarities and assist- ing with the Alex High Times helped to make our junior year complete. "Neptune's Garden," does that remind you of an im- portant night in our lives as juniors? Of course, the Junior-Senior Prom and Spring Party are two events we'll never forget. Buying formals, wearing new suits and having the girls wearcorsages all made us feel older. "Our Miss Brooks" was the Junior Class Play which was pre- sented on May 10 and 11. Not un- til the class of '51 graduated in June did we begin to realize that we were now the class that reigned over Alex High. All last summer we beamed when we said, "We're seniors", and when September 3 rolled around, the mighty class of 1952 was able to yell S-S-SEN-I-I-IOR and have the feeling of leadership and im- portance. In September the class pictures were taken and we began to work on our '52 Alexian. Before long Thanksgiving and Christmas were in the past. Yes, September-- October-- November -- and December had passed by helplessly. Our SeniorC'.ass Play started the spring's activities followed closely by exchanging pictures and learning to keep the beat as we practiced marching for graduation. Honor Day and the Senior Banquet came and went and as the high school band played "Pomp and Circumstance", we marched up the aisle at our commencement ex- ercises. The stage was beautifully decorated and as Mr. Hafdal gave each one of us our diploma, we felt a bit sad, because now we were leaving dear old Alex High. SENIOR CLASS PRESIDENT JIM FITZGERALD In addition to being president of the senior class, Jim also heads the 1951 Cardinal Band. Key club, "A" Club, Thespians and instrumental groups occupy most of his spare moments but he still finds time to work part time at Kolstads Clothing Store.

I 28  Enjoying a tobaggen ride are junior class officers, Lee Crosenick, president; Larry Shear, vice president; and Marilyn Bauman, secretary-treasurer. In the annual elections last September, Lee Grosenick was elected the president of our junior class. Larry Shear and Marilyn Bauman were elected vice president and secretary-treasurer. On January 21 and 22 we presented our first class play, "Old Doc." Whoever thought we'd be able to act? We had watched the plays for years before and there we were, before the people of our town, representing the junior class of 1951-52. Our class was well represented in all sports this year. Bob Sieling was elected next fall's football captain and Merlin Ekman led our basket- ball team this past season. The Prom and Spring Party were, of course, our largest projects of the year. The Prom was held on May 2. We had a large crowd at both events so we were again successful. Now our junior year has flown by and next September we'll enroll in Alex High in grade 12. Just think, we'll be seniors, and we have only one more year with our friends in high school. 29ROW 1, L - R: ROW 2, L - R: Arvidson. ROW 3, L - R: ROW 4, L - R: K. Bergstrom, M, Hggert, B.

"Mistletoe Magic" was the theme of the 1951 Christmas Dance which we sponsored on December 22. Our sophomore class also put on the annual Sadie Hawkins Dance on November 9. Both were very successful and our officers and committees were highly complimented. Conrad Muzik was our class president this last year with Ramon Hill and Jeannie McKay assisting as vice president and secretary-treasurer. Our first year in senior high was exciting. We thought it was wonder- ful to attend auditorium periods and dances without having a special in- vitation. Yes, this was our first year in senior high and it seems only yesterday that we were bragging because we were 7th graders, carrying our books from class to class. We only hope that our junior and senior years will hold a lot of mem- ories because, after all, they are all that we'll have when we leave Central High in 1954. 32Row 1, L-R: G. Groesnick, M.

Our freshmen class has been chosen to represent the junior high in the Alexian of 1952. Paul Ballard has been the president of our student council this year assist- ed by Jane Hustad, and Joan Luke, and Bob Flaig. Our junior high paper, the Variety, has been published every month this year and was sold for 5£ a copy throughout the junior and senior high. Miss Bertrand was our adviser. Next year we'll be in senior high. We'll be proud, we know, but we only hope that the next three years will be full of fun and memories as our years in junior high have been. 36Row 1, L - R: B.

The Alex Cardinals began their 1951 season by conquering Fergus Falls by a score of 12-6 to avenge a previous loss to the Otters. After stopping Osakis by 22-0, the Cards went on to suffer a loss to Detroit Lakes by a score of 14-7. Alex won the next three games with Wadena, (Homecoming), Glenwood, and Staples by substantial margins. The Cards' winning streak was broken when Park Rapids took advantage of a fumble in the third quarter to tip the Cards 14-13. The Alex eleven made up for the loss of the week before by stopping Melrose 26-0 with the Cardinal defense as the key to the win.Captain Dwayne Soderholm Donald Ruhl Frank Gadow Chet Nightengale 'pO-athzU Bill Lerbs 42 Kyle KrusemarkPlunging through that red shirted line.

At the completion of the season the Cards had won 12 while losing 10. Alexandria opened its season on the night of December 1 by defeating the Morris Tigers 53 to 49. The following week the Cardinals went on to win their next 3 games defeating Osakis, Park Rapids and Detroit Lakes. The following 6 games were all played away from home with the exception of Fergus Falls whom Alex defeated 73 to 51 and probably had their hottest night of the season. Alexandria's cagers were then given a 10 day Christmas lay-off. The Cardinals resumed their playing on January 4 when they traveled to Glenwood and lost their first game to a Glenwood team since 1948. The following three weeks found the Cards falling into a bad mid-season slump, losing their next 3 games to Hutchinson, Melrose and Long Prairie. By defeating a strong Breckenridge team 48 to 38, the Alex five rose out of their slump. The next two weeks Alex went on to win four out of their next five games, losing only to Granite Falls' undefeated Kilowatts. On Friday night, February 8, Alex met the Melrose Dutchmen. After a very hard fought game, Melrose emerged the victor by a score of 51 to 44. Alexandria concluded their season by splitting the four remaining games, de- feating Sauk Centre and the St. Cloud Teachers College Freshmen while losing to Minneapolis Central and Fergus Falls. Alex then entered the District Tournament at Glenwood on March 4, by defeating Long Prairie 58 to 39. They advanced to the semi-finals where they met and defeated Sauk Centre, which saw the Cardinals rallying from a 10 point deficit. The final score was 45 to 43. The victory gave the Cardinals the right to meet the Mel- rose Dutchmen, the winner of the other bracket, in the finals. In the final tilt Melrose won by a score of 52 to42. This gave Melrose the right to enter the Regional tournament at Fargo. This concluded the Alexandria's Basketball season for 1951-52. Looking ahead to next year I think we can all agree that Alexandria will again be one of the tougher teams in this area of the state, having seven out of the ten returning for the 1952-53 season. 4546 Ekman scores.

The climax of the season came when the Cards won the Lake Region Conference title by defeating a strong Melrose nine. Due to the number of talented underclassmen on the team, future prospects for the Cardinals are very good. Lettermen for the 1951 season were: Dean Bircher, DennisGilbertson, HolgerHanson, Jerry Krohn- feldt, Robert Kendall, Rodney Max, Chet Nightengale, Herbert Olson, Leonard Bratton, Larry Shear, Robert Seiling, Jack Bundy, Bill Tobaben, and Tom Clifford. ROBERT KENDALL A special tribute is made to "Red " since he left our school during his senior year after actively participating in sports and other activities during the three years he lived here.

Hex 7inte Sta Editorial staff: Donna Erickson, Stuart McCoy, Janice Reynolds, Deanna Thompson. Presenting the news in an interesting manner has been the chief purpose of the Alex High Times staff. By featuring a different idea in each issue, the school paper has had a wider appeal. Such causes as TB prevention, school bond issue, and youth council expansion were brought to the attention of the student body through the paper. This year the paper was made available to all pupils through the activity fee paid at the beginning of the year. The editor, Deanna Thompson, was assisted by news editor, Janice Reynolds; feature editor, Donna Erickson; and sports editor, Stuart McCoy. The editors, accompanied by Miss Virginia Combs, paper advisor and journalism instructor, attended the annual Minnesota High School Press Association Convention which was held at Duluth on October 5 and 6.
