To the students ot A. H. S.
We, the editors of the "53 Anokan," have endeavored to record in the
following pages life in Anoka High School tor the past nine months. We
hope this publication will serve its purpose as a memory book so that when
we open its covers in the years to come, we shall recall one ofthe best years
of our life.
This yearbook has not been produced under our hands alone, but is
the result ot the combined efforts of many people. We therefore take this
opportunity to thank our business managers, Lowell and Lois for making
possible all our expensive ideas, our faculty advisor, Mr. Johnson, for his
excellent experience and knowledge and for giving us that extra nudge
whenever we needed it, Jean and Lois tor their splendid art work, Mr.
Jacobson for his invaluable assistance to the artists, the Anokan staff tor
assembling and writing the copy, the Greene Engraving Co. and the North
Central Publishing Co. for their professional service.

Miss HELEN stoizv
"More is thy due than more than all can pay."
lt is only natural that Shakespeare should aid us in
conveying our admiration for Miss Helen Story who
has given everyone of us a deep appreciation for
Shakespeare's works. She has undoubtedly helped
form a foundation for the understanding of English
literature which will guide us throughout our stay at
Anoka High School.
The pleasing manner in which she exemplifies a
true friend and teacher is not only found in the class-
room during school hours but is also carried with her
wherever she goes as an intimate part of her very
being, as are her keen expressions and her radiant
Miss Story has always been more than willing to
give a helping hand to Anoka High's amateur musi-
cians whether it be by accompanying a soloist or the
entire chorus in their numerous appearances.
In her capacity of Senior Class advisor she has
shown undue sympathy, kindness, and an unusual un-
derstanding of our problems. For this, Miss Helen Story
will always be remembered by the class of "53."
Our social science instructor, Mr. Carroll Johnson,
has won the unswerving respect and admiration of
the Senior Class of 1953. He has presented to us age-
long problems and has formulated answers in our
minds that we may better the world we live in. By
carefully analyzing world events and by pointing out
the good and bad points of our society, he has helped
prepare us for our life after we leave the halls of
Anoka High School.
Equally important is Mr. Johnson's supervision of
the Anokan. His kindness, consideration, and actual
technical knowledge of the production of yearbooks
have been the motivating force behind the publica-
tions of the Anokan in the past years. Under his
watchful supervision the annual has risen to its pres-
ent prominence and has become an accurate record
of school life, a record which is a priceless treasure to
all those whose many memories are pictured between
its covers. '

The Board of Education, a civic minded
group ot men, directs the use ot the taxpay-
ers money which supports our school and all
of its various activities.
This newly elected Board represents the
consolidated Anoka-Hennepin County School
District No. 220 which was formed last sum-
mer. Besides their regular duties the mem-
bers of the Board of Education have laid the
plans for a new Anoka High School.
Left to right: Mr. J. M. Wennerlund, Secretary, Mr. A. P. Franke, Director, Mr. H. G. Haugland, Vice President, Mr.
Morris Bye, Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Forrest Babcock, President, Mr. L. K, Reisberg, Treasurer, Mr. F. H. Moore,
Mr. Bye, our superintendent, is well known by
everyone in the community. His iob takes onthe addi-
tional importance this year with the formation of the
new Anoka-Hennepin school district. Although his
very successful term as president of the Minnesota
Education Association ended this year, he is still in
demand by a profession which recognizes his profi-
ciency as a leader in education. Everyone who knows
Mr. Bye respects his wisdom and judgment on school
administration. His excellent and efticient iob as su-
perintendent of Anoka High School is appreciated by
everyone in the community.
Our principal, Mr. Huston, is the person who is re-
sponsible for the day to day administration of the
high school, Although he has many decisions to make
everyday, he is always ready to listen to any student
who has a special problem. His friendly interest in the
problems of Anoka High is a decided asset to our
Mr. Huston is a firm believer in student government'
and cooperates in every possible way with the Stu-
dent Council. All in all he deserves our special praise
for his efticient execution of his difhcult duties.
The girls you see busily working in the outer omce are the secretaries to our superinten-
dent and our principal. Jeanne Brahs is Mr. Bye's able secretary, while Bonnie Swing per-
forms this oftice efhciently for Mr. Huston. Occasionally we see Ruth Lundberg and Marge
Collins who work part time. They can usually solve our problems, if only by saying "he's
in,"-or maybe relieve us a little with "he's out." The girls deserve a hearty vote of thanks
for their cheerful and willing assistance.

The Senior High Student Council consists of a rep-
resentative front each home room and the members
of the National Honor Society. The council was head-
ed this year by Bill Hunt, president, Jim Dale, vice-
president, and Barbara Van Hollen, secretary-treas-
The purpose of the Student Council is to promote
better relationships between students and teachers,
and to give the students a voice in the running of the
school. This year many important proiects were car-
ried out. The council ably supervised the football and
basketball homecomings. Buttons were sold for the
football homecoming and the annual parade was
held. The council also presents assembly programs
for the student body. For the fTrst time at Anoka the
council undertook supervision of study halls. A "Sock
Hop" with music on record and dancing in stocking
feet was held. Prizes were awarded for the most un-
The council is a very important part of school life.
It gives the students a chance to express their views
on school matters. It is democracy in action, student-

to make school life run more smoothly, All in all it has
been a very successful year, much has been accom-

The Junior High Student Council, under the super-
vision of Mr. Zimdars, is the governing body of the
Junior High. All the classes are well represented by a
representative from each English class and by their
class officers. The council was headed this year by
George Zubulake, president, Charles Wennerlund,
vice-president, Llewellyn Ridge, secretary, and Mona
The council has four standing committees to assist
in running its school. The welcome committee greets
new students and shows them about the building. The
pepfest committee assists the cheerleaders, while the
building committee takes care of such things as locket
cleanups. The program committee sees that entertain-
ment is furnished to the students,

"OK," kids, get out "Anoka Fight." That was band
leader Morrie Johnson telling the kids to get all prepared
for that favorite song in the hearts of all of us at the first
basketball game, Everyone agrees that no band could
be peppier at a game or pepfest than ours.
The band's concert season is not all play and no work.
Each day in practice sessions, breathing exercises and
technique skills are improved day after day, and these
many long hours of practice paid oft in the form of better
playing at public appearances.
The spring contest is always a big event for the band,
and they were well prepared this year vvith many solos
and ensembles representing the tornado school. At the
district contest in Elk River, no school equaled Anoka in
the results of the competition. Many groups, because ot
. lt gg K
g s. is .
their fine results in the district contest, represented Anoka
at the State music festival at the University of Minnesota
And then came the "Pop Concert." Anyone who is a
native of Anoka thinks of the "Pop Concert" as one of
the finest evenings spent in our community. The band
performed like professionals in their playing, the decora-
tions vvere superb, and its food delicious. Mr. Johnson
vvill never forget the tribute that was paid him by the
students that night. He forgot all the grief that the band
might ever have given him.
The band played their final strains of music May 29,
as the seniors marched up to receive their diplomas vvith
"Pomp and Circumstancef' But marching and playing
vvill continue all through the summer at diflferent tovvns
and in various festivities. The seniors and underclassmen
will long remember the band of T952-53.
Thanks to the determination, patience, and talents ot
Miss Ruth I. Hallenberg, the senior high school chorus
was again an extremely successful musical organization.
Much time was spent both during school and at evening
practices as the eighty voices blended together to pro-
duce harmony. As a result ot this conscientious work,
two beautitul concerts were given. Rehearsals tor these
concerts naturally were not too harmonious. It anyone
happened into Room T7 when practice on a new song
had just begun, they would have been greeted with the
sound ot absolute discord. This would be followed with
a burst ol laughter from the group and Miss Hcllenberg.
Then back to work they would go. Slowly the parts were
learned and complete harmony resulted.
Sunday, December lil, tound the high school auditori-
um hlled with the many people who came to enioy the
truly beautiful Christmas Concert, This consisted ot a
number ol unusual religious songs plus the many well-
known Christmas carols, among them, "God Rest Ye
Merry Gentlemen" and "Joy to the VVorld." Among the
ensembles that sang at this performance were the mixed
octette singing "Christmas Roundelay" and "Deck the
Halls," the boys' octette singing "Beautiful Savior" and
the girls' sextette singing "Lullaby ot the Christ Child"
and "Alleluia, Christ ls Born." Four solos were also sung.
These were a soprano solo, "Come Unto Him," by Cal-
lista McCauley, a tenor solo, "VVhen Children Pray," by
Bob Potter, a contralto solo, "Sleep My Jesu," by Raeola
Smith, and a second soprano solo, "Birthday of a King,"
by Pat O'Connor. The seventh grade ensemble, the
eighth grade chorus, and the ninth grade girls' chorus
also sang at this concert, Before the lcrst carol, "Silent
Night," was sung Gary Schake, in behalf ot the entire
chorus, presented Miss Hallenberg with a gift, a white
jeweled cardigan sweater and a pair' ot matching ear-
In May, the spring concert was given. It contained a

A hush came over The audience, the lights were dimmed, and as the curtain
parted, The hrst speech department play of The year was underway. As The
audience listened, The story of "Cheaper by the Dozen" was unfolded before
them. This was The story of The Gilbreth family which consisted of Mr. and
Mrs. Gilbreth and Their Twelve children. Bill Nelson and Betty Mattson did an
excellent iob as Mr. and Mrs. Gilbreth while The children played by Mary
Mork, Bill Hunt, Alice Foley, Lois Reisberg, Jim Johanson, Jack Blesi, Judy and
Lois Quickstrom, and Melvin Lofgren did Their best To make The play a humor-
ous one. A budding romance is also evident in The play when boy friends,
played by James Bouley and Dick Walter, come to court the Gilbreth girls.
The next play was primarily a children's play by the name of "Rum-
pelstiltskinf' For the first time, a double cast of characters was used.
The story was about a poor miller's daughter, played by Janelle Cass
and Mary Fahey, who had to spin straw into gold or be put to death.
Since the miller's daughter couldn't spin straw into gold, a little old man called
Rumpelstiltskin, played by Betty Beck and Mary Jane Gibelyou, did it on the
condition that the iniller's daughter would give him her first child. Other
members of the play were as Mother Hulda, Eloise Petersen and Pat Kane,
Miller, Bert Webster and Arden Hughes, and as King's Son, David Micheau
and Dick Haugland.
Shortly after the Christmas holidays were over, Miss Hoglund and The stu-
dents concentrated on getting prepared for the speech contest. In the sub-
district Anoka received ten superior ratings, placing the following contestants:
Janet Reed and Dick Walter, discussion, Bill Hunt, extemporaneous speaking,
Bert Webster, Mary Mork, and Barbara Brown, extemporaneous reading, Vir-
ginia Jacobson, original oratory, Audrey Gow, Betty Mattson, and Mary Fraz-
All in all The speech department has had an unusually successful year. This
would not he true, however, if it were not for the able assistance given by
"You in the bcick row, move to the right just ci
LITTLE bit. There, thc1t's right!" These ore the tomilior
words heord by dll of us students when pictures for
the T953 ANOKAN, edited by Eloise Petersen ond
Dick Ford ond supervised by Mr. Johnson, were token.
The ntciny hours ol herd work put into this yeor's on-
nucil begun wcxy lost summer ond followed through
until lvlcirch when the lost copy wos sent into the pub-
lishers. Since the cost ot publishing o yeorbook os

Every year The Junior Red Cross has a special protect. This year it was
the filling of a chest ot school supplies tor a needy European school. The
annual enrollment drive was held in February to raise the money to till
the chest. Then, under The very able direction ot Miss Melby, a box was
made and filled with The various articles required. They all came under
the general headings ot: School and l-lealth Supplies, Recreation Equip-
ment, Musical Instruments such as harmonicas, First Aid Kits, and Books.
Altogether the chest and its contents cost about STOO. The articles which
were sent had to be new and the quality of the contents was more im-
portant than the quantity.
The chest was then sent to Washington and tram there delivered to
the school that needed it most. Then everyone waited anxiously to see
it the school receiving it would in any way acknowledge the gift.
Before school started, Junior Red Cross members, Ann Alt, Gerry
Vetch, and Stuart Laird attended the Junior Red Cross Camp. They
learned a great deal and enioyed it very much.
Although The organization accomplished many things during the past
year, the most outstanding event was their annual project at the State
Hospital. At Christmas and on ValenTine's Day, they decorated the hos-
pital Tor the annual parties. l-lere's hoping that next year and for a
long time to come they do the same.
This year the Junior Red Cross was very ably led by President, Jack
Crawford, Vice-President, Stuart Laird, Secretary, Gerry Vetsch, and
Treasurer, Ann Alt.

The "A" Club is made up of all varsity athletes who,
by their efforts in one sport or another, have won the
right to wear the monogram of Anoka High School. This
group includes members of the football, basketball,
baseball, golf, track, and wrestling teams and will soon
be ioined by members of the newly formed hockey squad.
This year's organization is headed by president Sam
Hovet, vice-president Jerry Hall, and secretary Adrian
Beltrand. Under their leadership, the "AN Club has spon-
sored the football homecoming dance and the faculty
basketball game while co-sponsoring the annual Sno

in the cafeteria during lunch hour and the same boys
sold programs at basketball homecoming to raise funds
which, this year, went toward the purchase of the cheer-
leaders' new uniforms.

In the Suburban Conference race, the Tornadoes got oflf to a good
start by defeating their arch-rival, South ST, Paul, before a Dad's Day
crowd at Goodrich Park. Anoka's massive line held the Packers scoreless
in This contest while Fred lvlor counted The game's only touchdown. White
Bear Lake was next to fall, and Anoka made it Three in a row when
Ade Beltrand reeled oFf two 50 yard runs in the last quarter to disap-
point Columbia Heights, Anoka's line also starred on defense as it held
the Highlanders to IO yards rushing for The entire contest. However,
lowly Hastings Turned The Tables on The Tornadoes homecoming night
when The conference cellar dwellers upset Anoka and forced The Tor-
nadoes into a first place Tie with White Bear Lake. Bouncing back rapid'
ly, Anoka iourneyed to Stillwater where The Tornadoes trounced the
Ponies in a wild scoring battle which saw a total of 8 touchdowns. As a
result of Their play during The season, fTve Anokans were placed on The
T all conference Team. Anoka's line was well represented with Jim Dale,
3 Bert Webster, Dick Allyn and Dale Miller all making The grade which
Adrian Beltrand was chosen To a backfield position.
Outside of the Suburban Conference, the Tornadoes faced rugged opponents from all corners of the
state. They began the season by decisively defeating a St. Louis Park Team which later placed second in
The Lake Conference. Anoka then Tied Fairmount, a southern Minnesota powerhouse which lost only one
game all season, Minneapolis Marshall was next in the line of non-conference teams to fall before Anoka
and Little Falls, one of North Central Minnesota's stronger elevens, succombed to The Tornadoes in the
Pumpkin Bowl to end the season. ln all these games, The last two in particular, Anoka displayed a brand
of teamwork and spirit which made it difhcult to pick any star performers except the Team as a whole.
These victories coupled with Anoka's Suburban Conference showing, dehnitely marked the Tornadoes as
one ofthe state's Top Teams.

Mary Mork was crowned the charming Queen of
the i952 Football Homecoming by Co-Captains, .lim
Dale and Sam Hovet. Red roses were presented to her
by tho Senior class president, Dick Caswell. Mary's
royal court included six lovely attendants from each
grade, Janelle Cass, l2th, Bonita Wallick, llth, Joyce
Hauk, lOth, La Donna Alt, 9th, Mona Herrboldt, 8th,
and Ann Philips, 7th, Dale Miller gave Mary's history,
after which Marge Pipenhagen sang the Queens fa'
vorite songs, "Star Dust" and "Trust in Me." Then the
Faculty Fools added the comedy to the occasion in an
hilarious pantomime of "l Went to Your Wedding.'
The afternoon parade followed the coronation
where thousands of people crowded the sidewalks to
witness the unforgetable scene. The evening parade,
led by the Anoka High School Band, progressed to
the gridiron where the undefeated Tornadoes clashed
with Hastings to lose by a score of seven to nothing
for the most surprising upset of the season, None the
less, a wonderful dance ended the evening and an-
other successful Homecoming Day came to a close.
The T952-53 Anoka High School Basketball Varsi-
ty witnessed -one of their more prosperous seasons
with an overall record of ll wins and 7 losses. They
were third in the Suburban Conference winning'from
Columbia Heights, White Bear Lake, and West St.
Paul, twice splitting with Hastings, and losing twice
to So. St. Paul and Stillwater for a record of 7 wins
and 5 losses. ln non-conference competition the tor-
nadoes had a 4-2 record, winning twice from Elk
River, once from Milaca, splitting with Braham, and
losing to Crosby-lronton.
For the first time in a number of years, Anoka had
a short team, but, hard work, aggressiveness and
good training made up for this handicap. Dale Miller,
the tornadoes 6' 2" center, often outiumped opposing
centers 6' 5" or better, which is one of the reasons why
he was selected for the All-Conference team. Sam
Hovet, Anoka's other member of the All-Conference
team, was probably the best long shot in the confer-
ence. Sam has been a regular guard for three years,
and this year was high scorer with 221 total points.
He has had the distinction of being chosen to the All-
District team two years in succession. Erwin Dargis, a
forward, was Anoka's other starting senior. Erwin
won the free throw championship this year by making
a good 65.506 of his attempts. Jerry Hall and Dick
Hartfeil, the other two starters were juniors. The rest
of the team consisted of Randy Burns, Bob Johnson
and Denny Ward who were seniors, and Ron Kish and
Dick Walter, who were juniors.
Friday the l3th proved to be unlucky to the Home-
coming Tornadoes since they came out second best
to Stillwater. The Ponies iumped to a i5-i4 first quar-
ter lead, with the locals coming back to take a 27-26
half time advantage. The game continued even
through the third quarter with the score tied 40-40,
but early in the fourth quarter the roof fell in when
Miller and Hartfeil fouled out, Stillwater was able to
outscore Anoka 25-l 4 in the last quarter to win 65-54.
Although Anoka lost, the fans weren't too disappoint-
ed because it was a hard fought game and the out-
come wasn't decided until the final quarter.
In the first game of District competition Anoka
trounced Mora, the Sub-district winner. ln the first
quarter Anoka iumped to a 26 to 8 lead, which they
continued to increase until midway in the second
quarter Coach Campbell put in the reserves. The re-
serves then held the lead resulting in a 69-46 victory
for Anoka. Anoka's plans for a District Championship
were ruined in the second game, by a sharp shooting
Braham team. The game was close all the way, with
Braham taking the lead in the last minute. Braham
then went on to win the Championship. In the conso-
lation game, Anoka met Cambridge and were de-

The Anoka "B Squad" under The guidance of Mr. Wanamaker,
made a vast improvement through the season. Unlike other years,
Anoka didn't depend upon juniors or members of The varsity but
relied upon the talents of sophomores, freshmen, and 8th graders.
Although a record of 6 wins and lO losses is far from a fine record,
Mr. Wanamaker and Mr. Campbell feel that it was a successful
season because The purpose of The "B Squad" is to develop skill
and team work rather than win games.
This year's team was made up of T8 players of whom Dave
Adolphson, Chuck Wennerlund, Jim Bernstein, Bob Erickson, Bob
Potter, Bill Magers, Jack Blesi and Mickey Pipenhagen were start-
ing. The Reserves were Dick Castle, Dick Erickson, Jim Vandecar,
Jack West, Sheldon Lehman, George Zubulake, Bruce Eggleston,
Dave Mason, Paul Mayo, and Jerry Erickson.
The Junior Bucketeers won twice from West St. Paul, split with
Braham, Elk River, Hastings and White Bear, and lost twice to
South St. Paul, Stillwater, and Columbia Heights.
Anoka started the season with a win over Braham. The game
wasn't decided until the last five seconds when Blesi dropped a
freethrow to win the game for Anoka, 46 to 45. Another exciting
game was with Elk River. The lead changed hands five times be-
fore Anoka finally forged ahead in the last minute to win by 2
High point men for Anoka were Chuck Wennerlund with 93
points in l4 games for a 6.7 point average per game, and Dave
Adolphson with 99 points in lo games for a 6.2 point average.
Other standouts were Bob Potter, a good shot from the corner,
Bob Ericson, a scrappy forward, and Dick Castle, who the coaches
hope will develop into another Pete. Much is expected from these
boys in the future.

Conference, second in The district, and took first place
The District I6 Track meet was held at The Goodrich
Field. Ed Faherty Took first place in The 440 yard dash
and Ron Murphy ran second. Faherty came out on top
inthe high hurdles and in The high jump. In The shot
put event Jim Dale and Bert Webster placed first and
second respectively. Jim Dale also placed second in
The discus Throwing event. Bob Hunt ran second in

Anoka won The regional crown aT ST. Paul Central
with 34 points. Fciherty and Murphy again came in
Hrst and second places in The 440. Jim Dale and Bert
Webster placed first and second in The shot put event.
Faherty ran in tTrsT place in The high hurdles and
Hovind ran second in The mile run. The relay team
came in second place, this time with Bill Hunt, Fred
Mor, Ed Faherty and Ron Murphy running. Five Anoka
men, Ed Faherty, Ron Murphy, Jim Dale, Bert Webster,
and Bud Hovind, went on to The state. Jim Dale was
the only Tornado To place in The state.
Coach Bill Wanamaker was well pleased with last
year's Team, but questions T953 because ot a scarcity
The Anoka baseball Team became District lo cham-
pions although they won only one game during the
scheduled season. The tirst game of the season showed
The Tornadoes at White Bear where they were defeated
quite decisively aT 9-T. Stillwater was its second defeat,
at the Ponies field, by the score of 6-O. Anoka enter-
tained So. St. Paul in our first home game. The local nine
led 3-i in the last of the seventh, when The Packers broke
loose with a scoring spree The Tornadoes couldn't stop.
So. St. Paul went home with a 7-3 victory on their record.
Sam Hovet pitched T2 strike outs against Columbia
Heights in the next home game to squeeze out an 8-7
victory for the local nine. Then Hastings handed Anoka
a decisive defeat by crossing the home plate to score T i
times. This was the hnal scheduled game of the season.
Anoka really caught on to the winning string when
the District lo tournament came around. The Tornadoes
downed Cambridge in the opening game of the Tourna-
ment by the score ot 6-i. Hovet pitched a 3 hit game
from the mound of the Anoka ballpark. The second
game was played in Anoka too. Princeton was the victim
of a 5-4 win for Anoka. Gary Schake started the pitch-
ing assignment for the Tornadoes but was relieved by
Hovet in the Htth inning. Anoka traveled to Braham for
the finals ot the tournament. The Tornadoes rallied 4
runs to break a 5-5 deadlock and to make Anoka the
i952 district champs. ln the first game of The region
Anoka drew Stillwater and was defeated 8-3.
Curt Vevea was the only senior on the team. The rest
of the lineup was Dargis, Hovet, Miller, Vaught, Wenner-
Iund, Schake, Board, Caswell, Dickman, Kish, and Earl.
Coach Anderson was pretty pleased with his team, an-
ticipating a better season in T953 because of the many
Intramural sports are rapidly assuming an important
place in Anoka. Their popularity is well deserved be-
cause no other activity gives so many students an oppor-
tunity to participate, Little wonder then that even at the
early hour of seven, student teams are on hand to com-
pete with other teams, Such enthusiasm is partly due to
the well planned program of its sponsor, Mr. Klonowski.
Basketball starts the season which was an exception-
ally good one. Games were played in the gyms of both
the High School and Lincoln. The following teams par-

The spring sport, volleyball, had a lot of interest in it
this year. The games started at 7:20 and 8:00 every
morning of the week. Because of the large floor, four
teams could play at one time, therefore taking care of
eight teams a day, There were twenty teams in the
league so each team could play twice a week at the

The activities of the senior class came to a close
with the class play, "Annie Get Your Gun," high-
lighted by an uproarious evening ot good tun. In
rapid succession followed the Junior-Senior Prom,
the award banquet, and baccalaureate.
May 29th ended this year as the class in cap and
gown received their long awaited diplomas. On that
evening the doors ot Anoka High School closed on
us as students but re-opened to us as we toolc our
place in the ever growing list of alumni.
The climax of any students high school career is to
be chosen an honor student because only those who
have achieved an enviable scholastic record are sel-
ected. This signal honor represents long hours ot
study, the willingness to improve the mind and the
In any democratic society, the practice ot it begins
in the school. The leaders ol our society must receive
their training early and under the guidance of those
with more experience, For that reason, those students
who show ability and desire to assume responsibilities
deserve recognition. The National Honor Society with
a chapter in Anoka has this obiective.
Each year ten per cent ot the senior class and five
per cent ot the junior class are selected to compose
ability to choose the important from the trivial.
This year's group are worthy ot the great honor
given to them and proudly join the ranks ol those who
vvon a distinction coveted by all,
this group. To qualify, a student must be in the upper
third ot the class and must have shown outstanding
traits of scholarship, service to the school, leadership
in school activities and good moral character. Since
the screening ot eligible students is done by both
taculty and tellovv students, only those with high
qualifications are chosen.
A salute then to the National Honor group who in
the eyes ot their classmates deserve this single honor.

Here are the three hundred or more eighth graders
who are veteran citizens of the school community.
After a year of feeling their way, they earned the
recognition as responsible ithough livelyi members of
our school. This year president Charles Wennerlund,
vice-president Dick Grefe, secretary Richard Adler,
and treasurer Mona Herrlooldt steered their activities
under advisers Misses Gooclner, Williams, Schaeffer,
Mortenson and Messrs. Bauer, Hagman, and Buehler.
Their representatives on the Junior Student Council
were Jean Sower, Gerald West, Kenneth Davis, Lenny
McLaughlin, Charles Wennerluncl, Peggy Hartfiel, and
Bill Gunther. Mona Herrboldt and Kay Brindle were
the lovely attendants at the football and basketball
homecoming activities. Kay Brindle, Christine Greene,
and Diane Frank were the peppy cheerleaders who
supported the teams.

Just as a new recruit enters boot camp to be trained
and molded into a member of an indesfructible Hght-
ing machine, so the seventh graders, the newest faces
around our school, enter our ranks to be trained and
molded by their class advisers, Miss Morken, Miss
Gow, Mrs. Abbey, Mrs. Freeburg, Mrs. Linden, Mr.
Stimmler and Mr. Lappin.
These newest members of our school family elected
as their ofhcers: president, Robert Ridge, vice-presi-
dent, Janet Erickson, secretary, Myrna Blaska, and
treasurer, Kurt Driscoll, and Student Council members,
John Walter, Tom Grey, Daniel Brodhead, Eldon Mil-
ler, Carolyn Grandstrom, Tom Anderson, and Bill
lt wasn't long before this class were veterans taking
part in all school activities. Ann Phillips and Marsha
Bennett represented them as football and basketball
homecoming attendants. The Junior Red Cross Coun-
cil, Junior G.A.A. the Bombers and other groups were
well represented. Probably the climax of the year was
the class party held December l3th when square
dancing, games, and of course refreshments were the
order ofthe evening.
