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.

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 smile. 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." .leaked fion, 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.

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, Director. Page eight Umm pQl'50I'll'l8 -wSir s'l MR. BYE 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. MR. HUSTON 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 school. 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 council was head- ed this year by Bill Hunt, president, Jim Dale, vice- president, and Barbara Van Hollen, secretary-treas- urei. 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- usual socks. 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- elected representatives following the students wishes to make school life run more smoothly, All in all it has been a very successful year, much has been accom- plished, the students benefiting from the councils pro- iects and the members gaining a knowledge of sub government. 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 Herbold, treasurer. 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, .xdcfiuifiea - 1 . A Rf k" 'L "f 5, L , .- if ' Q ' f 2 nf V W'- bzf f ex Q I f 3 i :L t ,jill of dj I f S P X.

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 in May. 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. mr. joLn5on CA 0l"l,t5 0 Y Q,-5 .Slrfezfe 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 0,4 Offeffe 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- rings, In May, the spring concert was given. It contained a number ot light songs in addition to many beautiful reli- Oyif 7 Qu afiette Clow mixed Ocfeffv giious sl-lediorrs One ol The lriglrligjlrlfr ol This coruvrT was The clelighTTul Nl-giro Time, "Rock Ll My Soul," vvrlh The errlrre chorus clcrpprrrg lrcirrds To The lrec1T, Tire girls pusTul forrriuls also uclnlocl To The be41UTy of This corrcer'T, Chorus groups also sang aT Pl!-X, arrcl Church rrrnolirrgs arrcl oTher' social luridiorrs llre eriTiro Lhorus was lrorrormrll lay Mr. Bye's ruquvfxt Tlral They sing ai The operrirrgg session ol The Ml ,A rrr Oflolvor.lhisheirrgMr. Bye'slL1sTyoc1r r1sTlrosTc11ulVl,l',!-X. prusrclerrt, rT was rrrllmfrl 41 growl horror which he liv- stovvorl on This group.

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.

Page Tweniy'Two 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. ff'f'Y rwfvvmk W5 X- N lfU'lLOI' KPOZM 9' I E 1 ,yi N ia -1 J is if Y S yl I if as ' 6 3. ,WVJJJ K K l l l Page twenty-thre 94,4 Y I Bock row: P.

Uaraifg 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- Page forty-four 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- feated 54-42, The Anoka High Basketball team definitely had contrary to some people's pre-season beliefs, a very successful season. The team and coaching staff, Mr. Campbell and Mr. Wanamaker are to be congratulated for a iob' well done. l W, .SDCZUG .sv-if 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 points 31-29. 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. !lf""'W!,,,rfMw,1 ,454 0 'E' I ff' ! is jg: 5 9' 'Y ,Lim f lc 'li I, 1 " ,X , f T Mf it A if ,W 1 ' f, V G ' will X f filly!!

Edina, VVinona, Austin, St. Paul Central, and Wayzata were each beaten once by the Anoka grapplers, Their two defeats vvere to Wayzatcx on a return match and to Hastings with vvhom they also had their only tie. The hve top scorers tor the Tornado matmen were D. Board, J. Dale, B. Board, Hovind and Hardle. They all collected over 40 points with D. Board leading the vvay by 49. B. Dale, Moore, Herberg and Montague all had over 25 points. Others who scored tor Anoka were Wilson, Kline, Rogers, Scott, Skolte, Horbal, Trombley and Beltrand. At the end of the regular season D. Board, Hovind and J. Dale were still unde- teated. The Tornado grapplers lost the regional trophy to Hastings by tour points but not until they had tive champions and tour second places taken, D. Board, B. Board, and Hovind were crowned Region Four champions in the 95 lb., lO3 lb. and ll? lb. classes respectively, Don Hardle was crowned T45 lb. champ and Jim Dale the T65 lb, champ. Herberg, Montague, Moore and B. Dale all took second places in their weights while G. Lindgren took third place and A. Beltrand took fourth place in their weights. In the State Tournament Anoka vvon titth place. Captain Jim Dale won the state's l65 lb. champion- ship while Bob Board and Dick Board took second and third places. Leslie Hovind was beaten by the state champion in the first round as Don Hardle was elim- inated bythe runner-up in his weight. Coach Garth Lappin and his assistant Coach Chet Anderson should be commended tor their fine work in building what we think is one ot the best wrestling squads in the state, The future tor next year looks pretty good and you can bet that they'll have another winning team. i 'xggf 3 xisgff Q, iz. 4' , . 5 ik ,.p-nsnnunuh, I.,-,n f"""Nl gaussian...

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.

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 OT veterans. gtldegaf 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 returning lettermen. .9l'ltl"Cll'l'llll"6lK .S?90l'f5 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- ticipated: VV L Class "AA" Fairylanders T8 T . Pressurites TO TO Class "A" Royals T7 4 Globe Trotters TO 7 Class "B" All Stars T6 T Whiz Kids T5 Q Class "C" Doodle Bums T7 T Regular Drips 9 B Class "D" lmbeciles T2 4 Flashes 3 T2 High point men were the followingz "AA" Bob Dick- man, Milt Peterson, "A" George Eaton, Jack Beggsg "B" Charles Crandall, Richard Calhoun, "C" Wayne Bebeau, James Pfliederg "D" Vern McGonagle, Wendall Larson. On November TO, the Anoka High School Intramural Bowling league began at Vaughn's Bowling Lanes. Sen- ior High bowled every Monday and Junior High every Wednesday right after school. The following teams composed the Senior High section and by the end ofthe season had scored as follows: VV L P ct.

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 High School.

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. 0ll0l' StuJent5 av 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 Wafiona 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 3 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, 'J onor .Sociefy 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. l Page seventy-three C CMM I Catherine Ackley Richard Allyn Joan Anderson Phyllis Anderson Roberta Anderson Patricia Angelo Vernon Arvidson Phyllis Bauer Ted Bauer Eleanor Beckenbach Betty Blaska Karl Blomgren William Board Yvonne Bodick Barbara Boehm De Loris Boelter David Bouley James Bouley Donald Braucht Mary Brindle Barbara Brown Gail Bucklin Carol Burke Rand Burns Ray Canton Diane Carroll Janelle Cass Richard Caswell Celia Charest Ronald Chase Karen Constantine Amy Countryman Monica Crysler Phyllis Dahlgren James Dale Erwin Dargis James Davis Roger Dickenson Robert Dickman Roseanne Doege Geraldine Dudek Richard Earl George Eaton Margaret Elieff DuWayne Emmans Robert Erickson William Erickson Mary Fahey Alice Foley Richard Ford Carl Foster Eyvonne Fredrickson Harvey Fulwiler Edgar Gelle Gary Gerber Wayne Getchell Mary Jane Gibelyou Marilyn Giddings Page seventy-four LEAVE MY Dances Good naturedness Quiet ways Basketball Brains Twinkling eyes Size Skipping Theodore Our parties Blushing Wisecracks Ditching Mr. Huston Future Poise Diamond Sleeping in Social Taxi Ice skates Good grades Trombone Love forever Tobogganing Manly Charms Foley Road Out-of-town interests Going steady The baseball outfield Naturally wavy hair Reform Dave "verbals" Little waist Roller skating "police record" Laugh Intelligence Bus No. I4 Ambition Talkitiveness Disposition Football strategy Intelligence Pete Many cars Yellow Beetle Iviodestness Resolutions Long notes Versatility Sleeping in classes Study halls The girls of Anoka Agriculture class Bow ties Bashfulness "coffee pot" Sweet ways TO Johnny Bill Dale Joan Daly Pat Elieff Mike Rich Me Roger Hedstrom Joyce Berg Ted Werner Karen Wrabek Larry Swanson Joel Baumgartner Ade Beltrand Ralph Donalene Barret Myself Ronnie Kish To the snow drifts Dickie Pearson Jackie Moran Tom Hilliard Lyle Next winter Neal Guy Those who can find it!
