The Cardinals, playing on the home gridiron, came up with a 12 to 0 victory although faced by a fine opponent. In the second game of the season and the first Resort Region Conference game, the Cardinals survived a fine Moorhead passing attack to gain a 12 to 7 victory over the Spuds. Alex had to come from behind in the second half for their first conference victory. The Willmar Cardinals took advantage of many Alex- andria mistakes to gain a 14 to 7 victory over the Alex squad and hand the Cardinals their first defeat of the season. The fourth encounter of the season found the Cardinals putting up a stout defense to defeat the Wadena Indians by a score of 15 to 0. The Alexandria squad next traveled to Breckenridge where they outdistanced the Cowboys 19 to 6 to gain their second Resort Region Conference victory against no losses. In the sixth game of the season the Cardinals downed Glenwood. the age-old rival, by an 18 to 6 score.Summary In the next gridiron encounter, which was the third conference game, the Cardinals could do no better than salvage a 6 to 6 tie with Fergus Falls. In the annual Homecoming game the Cardinals won by a score of 20 to 6 over Detroit Lakes, a team which had not been beaten by an Alex team since 1949. This game also gave Alexandria an undisputed conference championship. In the last game of the season, the Cardinals won easily from the Wheaton Warriors 32 to 0. This final victory gave the Cardinals a Resort Region Conference record of four wins, no losses, and one tie. The overall season rec- ord saw the Cardinals winning seven, losing one, and tying one. . Three Alexandria squad members, Doug Backhaus, Roger Anderson, and Jack Iverson, were named to the Resort Region All Conference Team. Doug Backhaus was named to the Minnesota All State Defensive Team, and Jack Iverson received the Most Valuable Player award. Charlie McDonald and Dave Helgeson were elected as Co-Captains for the 1958 Football Season.STANDING: Coach T. Conner, Student Manager D. Clarke, R. Sarvie, L. Anderson, A. Shogren, D. Reynolds, D.

Deleski Slays! Senior Class Play The senior class play, under the direction of Mr. Rich- ard Halverson, chose Shakespeare's 'Taming of the Shrew" for its swan song production. Patti Hollingsworth and Edena Goodrich assisted Mr. Halverson with the production. The story of the shrew opens in the busy Italian city of Padua,a center of arts. A rich young tourist named Lufcen- tio arrives with his servant. Katharina, the elder, has such a violent temper that no one will marry her. Her sister, Bianca, is so gentle and soft-spoken that she has two ardent suitors; a young man and an old man. The merchant an- nounces that he will not allow Bianca to marry until a hus- band is found for Katharina. A vigorous young man named Petruchio arrived in town with only one thought in mind; to marry a rich wife. He heard about the merchant's daughters, and felt that he was the one who could tame Katharina, the shrew. The following cast of players unfolded the very interest- ing story of 'Taming of the Shrew." Baptista, John Whalen; Katharina, Carrol Herbert; Bianca, Sharon Lamb; A wealthy widow, Lynn Stenzel; Petruchio, Bill Unumb; Tranio, Tom Kalil; Lucentio, Bob Buuck; Hortensio, Jan Sather; Vincen- tio, Harold Patrick; Grumio, Gerald Timm, Jackie Deleski is Biondello; Stan Bolin, Gremio; Mike Ettesvold, Curtis; Anita Foslien, Nathianiel; Lester Herrmann, Gregory; Tineke deGraaf, a tailor; James Rippon, a haberdasher; and Donna Paulson and Barbara Olson as first and second gentlewomen respectively. The play was held for three nights; March 27,28, and 29 and was very well received by all. The settings were done by the art department.Administration and School Board G. A.

To list the many outstanding qualities which have endeared Mable Johnson to us all would be too ambitious an undertaking for one brief statement of dedication, but it must certainly be said that her devotion to her many responsibilities and her friendly interest in helping everyone has made for her a special place in the hearts of the thousands of persons with whom she has been associated throughout the years. 59Office Personnel Bus Drivers FIRST ROW, Left to Right: C.

Our class advisor was Mr. George Anderson. The publication of the Cardette, the junior high school paper, was one of the major projects sponsored by the Freshman Class. Among the many parties we had and enjoyed were the Fall Party, Valentine Party, and the Spring Party. We've enjoyed our last year of junior high school and are looKing forward to our Sophomore year.

It really doesn’t seem possi- ble that we will be seniors already. The time has gone by so fast, but the memories of our Junior year will always be close at hand in our minds. Our Junior attendant for Homecoming was Gayle Anderson. She was very lovely. "Meet Mein St. Louis” was the title of our class play. It was pre- sented in November, under the direction of Mr. Halverson. It was a lot of hard work, but proved to be successful. Planning and sponsoring the Junior-Senior Prom was our major ac- complishment. Making and putting up the decorations took many hours of work, but the evening was a success.

Wicken. 70We,the class of 1958, are now gazing toward a long, winding path, a path called future with its many hopes and opportunities. But first, we pause to cast a long, backward look, before slowly turning and en- tering our journey of life and knowledge. As we glimpse back to our past, our Freshman year stands out for most of us. The auditorium was over flowing as we did our first class play. What a thrill it was to be big Freshmen, head of the Junior High! Our Sophomore year was off with election of class officers and the Sadie Hawkins dance. It was the night before Sadie Hawkins. Every Sophomore has visions of Little Abner's dancing in their heads. Purple Fish without water? Impossible! Not for the Juniors! It was the Junior-Senior Prom. Our theme was "Neptunes' Court." We had everything from Neptune's mermaids to a sunken treasure ship. Some- how that ship adorned with many treasures, symbolized our high school years, treasures of memories sunken deep in die past. A lasting tribute, the mighty Senior. This, our last year, started early widi class pictures and rings. Soon we were busy with the Alexian, the AlhiTimes, Christmas Concerts, andour class play. We were guests of the Juniors at the Prom. All too soon came die Senior Banquet, Honor day, and Baccalaureate. We walk slowly down the aisle, a mist in our eyes and a diploma in our hand. The goal has been reached. Good-by, Alex High! 72A ITT ALA, GENE ALM, RAYMOND AMUNDSON, MARILYN ANDERSON, JANE ANDERSON, KARLENE ANDERSON, ROBERT ANDERSON, ROGER 9 ANGUS, RICHARD ANNIS, SANDRA BACKHAUS, DOUGLAS BARTEN, SHIRLEY BEMO, BARBARA BERGLIN, KATHLEEN BETH, LUCRETIA BISEK, JANET 73BISEK, JOAN BLANK,PAUL BOCK, ROLLIE BOLIN, STANLEY BOLLARD, JAY BRAEGER, LAVONNE BREZINA, KENNETH BRUNDELL, FRANKLIN BRUXVOORT, LUELLA BUSE, OLIVER BUUCK, ROBERT CHRISTIANSEN, CAROLYN CUFFORD, JOHN COLLINS, MAUREEN COLONS, WILLIAM 74DAWSON, CONNIE DELESKI, JACKIE DROSKY, WILLIAM DUNNE, KATHLEEN EKDAHL, CLIFFORD ENGFER, JOYCE ETTESVOLD, MICHAEL FAIRFIELD, BRENDA FISHER, ARLAINE FLAIC, THOMAS FOSLIEN, ANITA GAWTHROP, DELORES GELLING, DALE GOODRICH, EDENA GRIESE, DEANNA 75GROVE, LAVONNE GROVE, WILLIAM GUENTHER, GERALD GULBRANSON, MAYNARD HALVERSON, NUEL HANSON, RONALD C.
