It is here that most of the school's major problems are solved by the very capable hands of the School Board. Mr. Morris Bye, our superintendent, is a very busy man. Coming to Anoka in 1943, he has since then in addition to his regular duties, been president of the Min- nesota Education Association, and presi- dent of the Minnesota Association of School Administrations, both very honor- able positions. He is also an executive officer on the Board of Education to which he reports the problems and prog- ress of the schools. He sees that the poli- cies of the board are carried out, works with the architects in planning new schools, and draws up the specifiications and supervises the purchase of new equip- ment and books. He does all this in addi- tion to seeing that the huge organization of nearly 4,900 pupils, 150 teachers, 20 janitors, 20 cooks, and 45 bus drivers act smoothly as one team. It is only fitting then that in closing another year, we pay tribute to an able administrator and genuine friend, and wish him the best of luck as he goes for- ward with Anoka into another school year. The members of the School Board are: Mr. Bye, the Superintendent of Schools, Mr. L. O. Jacob, Treasurer, Mr. John Hig- gins, Director, Mr. Fred H. Moore, Presi- dent, Mr Earl E. Olson, Administrative Assistant, Mr. H. G. Haugland, Vice-presi- dent, Mr. J. M. Wennerlund, Secretary, and Mr. Raymond K. Nelson, Director. P g gh! 'u.... W- riulaeruidion ma e 9006! 6CA00!l00ACi26 Our principal, Mr Huston, deserves a word of thanks for carrying on the day to day administration of our school. Even though he must make many routine de- cisions each day, he always finds time to lend an understanding ear to a student's problem. His unflagging interest in the school's life is a decided asset to everyone concerned. As a firm believer in student govern- ment, he has helped our student council in every possible way. When not in school Mr. Huston likes to relax by playing a round of golf or doing a bit of fishing. He would someday like to take a trip to Europe, and we hope he makes it. This was Mr. 0Ison's first year at,Qur school. As business administrator, he .re- lieved Mr. Bye, our superintendent, of many of his duties. He takes care of many financial details such as auditing the bills and supervising the lunch program. Although Mr. OIson's work affords him little actual contact with the students of A.H.S., his ready smile and friendly man- ner made him known and liked by all. In his leisure time, Mr. Olson likes to play golf, go fishing, read, or watch al- most any sports event. 'M W Mark Klonowski is our assistant prin- cipal. He is in charge of the junior high and with the enrollment growing larger each year, this is a big job, but he still finds time to listen to each student's prob- lem and to help them solve it. Also, he takes over Mr. Huston's duties when he is absent. In his spare time, he enjoys square dancing, golf, and volley ball. Two eve- nings a month you'll find him down in the auditorium calling square dances and teaching new numbers to the Square Dance Club. 19 -Q 'ie fi, E wg.-f AY' Glfflflfhy l'l'l6t 8 QXC2!el'lf te6l.CA2l 5 Vivian S.

After twelve long and adventurous years of anticipation they have finally reached the top rung of the ladder, their senior year. Events got under way early when the follow- ing officers were elected to lead their classmates through a year of unequalled success: Duane Schulte, president, Gary Kurilla, vice-president, Shirlee Weese, secretary, and Katherine Swan- son, treasurer. It seems that this graduating class has always been a leader in school activities and this year has been no exception. Seniors presiding over the various clubs were: Thespians, Gary Kurilla, Library Club, Kathryn Goodrich, Jr. Red Cross, Jack Crawford, Home Ec. Club, Joan Noreen, R00ter's Club, Gail Cox, A Club, Duane Schulte, Science Club, Jack Crawford, Spanish II Club, Bonnie Hathaway, G.A.A., JoAnn Strand, Band, Dick Walter. Barb Pease, Don Hardle, Betty Mattson, David Dilcher, and Ter- rance Mitchell were the seniors active on the Debate Squad. Of course, the biggest class project is publish- ing the Anokan which was under the supervision of Bev Bunker and Darrell Tilleskior, co-business managers, and Katherine Swanson and Anne Alt, co-editors. Another important publication to everyone at A.H.S., is the Anokahi, which is edited by Barb Pease and Betty Mattson. Page sixteen CVM 0 I 5 4 In the field of sports there were many senior boys who did outstanding work. As captain Jerry Hall led this year's football team through a successful season with the help of other stars. The wrestling team was able to keep up its excel- lent record with the help of Don Hardle, the team's captain. The co-captains of the hockey team, Larry Swanson and Dave Gleason, can't boast of their wins but they can tell about a lot of fun and hard work. This year's basketball squad starred many boys. Among them were seniors, Jerry Hall, Ronny Kish, Bob Young- quist, Jim Gabrick, Dick Harttiel, Bill Butler, and Dick Walter. Intramural sports provided fun and sportsmanship for many senior boys. The Royals copped basketball honors in the AA division. Audrey Gow was the lovely queen who reigned over football homecoming activities, with Donna Siodin as her senior attendant. Crowned as Sno- King and Queen at the annual Sno-Ball were Jerry Hall and Janice Fischer. Gail Cox and Ronny Kish were the royalty of basketball home- coming and Teanie Mueller was the senior at- tendant. Our cute and peppy senior cheerleader was Raeola Smith. Darrell Tilleskior was awarded the Bausch- Lomb award, and Katherine Swanson received the DAR award. Miss Story, Mr. C. Johnson, Mr. Wilcox, Miss Anderson, Miss Hoglund, and Miss Berg were the class advisers who must be given much credit and many thanks for being such a help throughout the year. The year was climaxed by the Prom, the sen- ior banquet, baccalaureate, and finally gradua- tion. Memories of the wonderful years of high school filled every seniors' heart as they joined the long list of alumni of AHS. IUMA. Anne M. All' Gerald R. Asplund Johnny N.

Youngquisi J , J , UIIUI' ,SIHILUIIJ To be an llonor Student is truly what the name implies, an honor. The fact that a student is so selected makes it known that all through high school he has made the distinction between that which is important and that which is not. It means that he has attained a scholastic rec- ord of which anyone can be proud. This record represents many hours ot' hard study. and the will to learn. Therefore, those who are chosen for this honor are the best representatives of the class ol' 1954. They greatly merit the distinction which has been bestowed upon them. Wlfllillllllf , onor , orfcfy To the National llonor Society are elected the members of the junior and senior classes who possess the qualifications which have made them leaders and good citizens in their high school. Each year live per cent of the junior class and ten per cent. ot' the senior class are chosen for membership. Eligible students must be in the upper third ot' their class and must have shown outstanding service to the school. leadership in school activi- ties, and a good moral character as well as a fine scholastic record. The screening of the eligible students is done democratically. by both the fac- ulty and the students. A salute should be given to those who have achieved membership in the National llonor So- ciety because in the eyes of their classmates they have what it takes. ltr, 49 Pcifp' tv.: llfxf' rum- Anne Alt Carol Anderson Clarice Anderson Gladys Anderson Gerald Asplund Carolyn Auspos Aileen Bebeau Betty Beck Jerry Behnke Johnny Bell Adrian Beltrand Joyce Berg Janice Bergstrom Mary Ellen Billstrom Donald Blaska Larry Blesi Darlyn Bovee Chuck Bowers Carola Breun David Brodhead Eddie Brown Bev Bunker Jackie Burns Danny Burton Edwin Burton Marilyn Bush Bill Butler Dawn Campbell Bob Carlson Diane Cech Ann Chouinard Charles Coler Gail Cox Jack Crawford Gerald Crosby William Dale Jeanette Daly Donna Daml Diana DeJarlais David Dilcher Joy Doak Leanne Driscoll Jim Duerr Sylvia Durland Shirley Elmer Bud Emerick Roger Englund Donald Erickson Bill Estenson Theresa Fields Janice Fischer Vernon Francen Paul Franke MaryAnn Frazier Donna Frischmon Jim Gabrick Bob Gerber David Gleason Kathryn Goodrich Audrey Gow Edward Graham Elmer Greeninger Page thirty ein? in Joun min TO LEAVE MY Back hall episodes Quietness Shyness Early bus rides Ballet lessons Flying Pleasing smile 98-pounds Curly hair Red hair Left half-back Skipping school Sneezing Dimples Bashfulness Being a big wheel Love life Weekends Place in lunch line Trombone Stop watch Nose plugs Pink car Old girl friends The Legion Club Nickname Hot Rod Magazine Parties Black book 7th hour bookkeeping Unexpected parties Shakespeare Basketball crown Hall manners Macbeth Arguing Brown eyes Haircut Art work Expert drumming Modeling Height Bunker Prairie Peroxide Skipping Beard Square dancing Quiet manner School daze Giggles Getting expelled Accidents Motorbike Future Camden Night life Bargain Burn's Girls Clarinet Football Queen Speed Limit Centerville girls Donna Alt Anyone who wants it Darlene Langseth Velma Arvidson Keith Kimberly The birds Kay Brindle Sherry Larson Mr. C.

Early in the school year they elected Skip Rither, President, Jim Bernstein, Vice-President, Jeanette Miller, Secretary, and Charles Crandall, Treasurer. On the student council they were rep- resented by Dallas Burns, Colleen Kerns, Gerald Herberg, and Jerry Frazee. The football A squad was bolstered a great deal by having Jim Bernstein, Greg Bergeron, Bill Horbal and Skip Rither as members. Later in the year'BiIl Horbal and Skip Rither were named co-captains of next yearls team. Four of our lively cheerleaders were from the eleventh gradeg Sharon Goss, Margie Schwandt, JoAnn Reynolds, and Colleen Kerns, with Rosie Payette acting as alternate. On the Basketball AH squad Dave Adolphson, Jim Vaught, Bob Potter, Bob Erick- son, and Gordy Swenson represented the Juniors. arid 0 '55 To help the winning streak of the wrestling team along were Stan Wilson, Bill Horbal, Bob Board, and Jerry Herberg. High on the list of important happenings this past year was the choosing of class rings. Differ- ences in opinion arose, but in the end everyone was pleased with the choice. Junior boys and girls were very active in vari- ous clubs, many of them acting as officers. Charles Crandall was field marshal for the band and Marilyn Meyer was one of the bewitching twirlers. Gay McDearmon was the lovely football queen's attendant and Rosemary Lindburgh at- tended the queen during basketball festivities. Basketball homecoming was topped off by a suc- cessful dance sponsored by the Junior class. Darla Van Dyke and Ginny Jacobson were select- ed to attend Girl's State. Climaxing a year of hard work and fun was the Junior-Senior Prom. Miss Melby, Mr. Greengo, Mr. Follrath, Mrs. Jurek, Mrs. Anderson, Mr. Wanamaker and Miss Nordlie were the advisers that supervised the Juniors. Fifth: E. Schlosser, D. Mason, R. Pike, B. Froberg. A.

The students chose for president, Jim Gleason, vice-president, Anita DeJarIaisp secretary, Donna Lindfors, and treas- urer, Elaine Kost. Many of the sophomores participated in sports. Among those on the basketball squad are Jack West, George Zubulake, and Sheldon Lehman. Gordon Rogers and Bruce Eggleston played on the football B squad. The very energetic cheer- leader who represented the sophomore class was Marva Sawvell. Some of the sophomores who contributed to the success of the band and chorus are Dave Bagaus, Susan Sallberg, Joe Ridge, Janet Arm- strong, Ann Cudd, and Gail Peterson. The two lovely sophomore queen's attendants this year were Anitia DeJarIais, football, and Shirley Talbot, basketball. Sophomore Student Council members are Steve Swanson, Richard Reynolds, Anita DeJarIais, Donna Lindfors, Don- na Alt, and Marva Sawvell. Mr. Thom, Mr. Campbell, Miss Fleischman, Mr. Gilbertson, Miss Hallenberg, Miss Lemberg, Mr. J. Wagner, and Mr. Jacobson are the advisers of the sophomore class, with Mrs. Hunt, chairman Fifth: J.

Kline, QQ X 1 The freshman class of 1957 has a lot to be proud of. They are very well represented in sports and music as well as other clubs and activ- ities in the high school. They started the year off right by electing Jerry West, president, Mona Herboldt, vice-pres- identg Bill Gunther, secretary, and Carol Warn, treasurer. The four very peppy and energetic Jr. Cheer- leaders this year, were from the freshman class. They are Kay Brindle, Lael Goss, Christine Green, and Jean Wrabek. 57 Nina Paul, football attendant, and Claudia Bauer, basketball attendant added much to the homecoming pictures as representatives of the freshman class. Chuck Wennerlund starred on the football and basketball A Squad. Dick Castle, Tom Pease, Jim Bowers, Dick Erickson, and Rudy Betlach, played on the basketball B Squad. The fresh- man class was also well represented in the mu- sical field. Jackie Moran and Judy Israel were two of the snappy baton twirlers. Bill Gunther led the freshman Student Coun- cil with Carol Warn as secretary. The class was assisted by the advisers, Mr. L. Wagner, Mrs. Bowers, Mr. Ramy, Miss Foster, Mr. Grefe, Mrs. Abler, and Mr. Bradley, with Mr. M. Johnson acting as chairman. Fifth: D. Pust L. Green, R. Holmes, L. Trombley, G. Tysver, G. Shannon, R.

V Twenty-two Junior Red Cross members were W These are the 320 eighth graders who have taken an active and responsible place in our school community. They are looking forward eagerly to next year when they will be the big shots in this building with the senior high out of the way. Led by president, Tom Grey, vice- president, Robert Ridge, secretary, Marsha Ben- netty and treasurer, Harriett Kimberly, the eighth grade has made a name for itself under the direction of class advisers, Miss Williams, Miss Mortenson, Miss Finneman, Miss Goodner, Miss Trostrud, Mrs. Petraborg, Mr. Holtzman, Mr. Buehler, and Mr. Alley. Representing them at the Junior High Student Council were Virginia Atwood, Chuck Larson, Paul Erickson, Mike Freer, Richard Pearson, and Jim Goodrich. Tom Grey was the council's vice- president and Dick Johnson, its treasurer. Manyl eighth graders, and Ruthann Brown represented them on the Jr. Red Cross Council. Many of the girls belonged to Junior G. A. A., and Brenda Kinney, Myrna Blaska, Judy Lingren, and Susan Scales. were officers. The lovely football and bas- ketball homecoming attendants were Gail Shan- non and Susan Scales, and to top football home- coming, the eighth grade float won second prize in the parade. Myrna Blaska was a substitute Junior Cheerleader during the year. Many of the class were interested in sports. The Bombers were well-represented, and intra- mural teams were very busy. Vern McGonagle was high point man in intra-murals among the eighth graders. Probably the highlight of the year was the class party on November 20, where the main at- tractions were a talent show, folk dancing, the grand march, and, of course, refreshments. Fifth: R.

Their class advisers, Mrs. Freeburg, Mrs. Knutson, Miss Gow, Mr. Lappin, Mr. Stim- ler, Mr. John Johnson, and Mr. Hansen, ably as- sisted them in adjusting to high school life. The class selected Dick Whitney as president, for the first semester, and Dottie Olson as presi- dent for the second semester, with David Castle as vice-president, Dennis Schumacker as secre- tary, and LeRoy Peterson as treasurer. Joyce Anderson, Mary Watson, Penny Foss., Judy Erickson, Audrey Hagen, Paul Lommen, and Francis Lewis represented the 7th grade on the Junior High Student Council. The 7th graders took part in many school ac- tivities. Sandra Cooper was the representative to the Junior Red Cross Council for the forty-five seventh grade members. Judy Erickson and Janet Hall were the football and basketball homecoming attendants respectively. Bill Brock was high point man of the 7th grade in intra- murals. In Bombers and Junior G.A.A. the stu- dents also took an active part. One of the most important events of the year was the class party on November 6, highlighted by a talent show, and square-dancing.

Democratic self-government in Anoka is represented by the Senior Student Council whose representatives are the members of the National Honor Society and six rep- resentatives from grades 10, 11, and 12. As projects this year they took charge of both homecomings and after careful consideration they decided on and laid the foun- dation for an ethics committee, which will probably be in effect next year. Representatives were sent to both the state and national conventions. Officers are President Jerry Hall, Vice President Eddie Brown, Secretary Anne Alf and Treasurer Jim Johansen. As junior members of Anokals student government, President Bill Gunther, Vice President Tom Gray, Secre- tary Carol Warn and Treasurer Dick Johnson were the officers responsible for the work of the Jr. High Student Council. The year was successfully started by sponsoring a parent-teacher open house. Other projects undertaken were locker clean up. yard committee, and a talent pro- gram of which half of the funds went to the March of Dimes. and the other half for a trip in the spring. FLOLCLIQ IQPQIDQPUQJ 0lfU l'l'lel'Yl0l'i05 Putting out a yearbook is the result ot' hard work as this year's co-editors, Anne Alf and Katherine Swanson, and co-business managers. Darrell Tilleskior and Bevalyn Bunker will veri- ly. Even before school started the editors and business managers went to the N.S.P.A. conven- tion at the University ot' Minnesota to get ideas and learn what other schools do in journalism, Then they spent hours taking pictures, selecting committees, and finally getting everything proof- read and sent to the publishers and engravers, Since a yearbook must be paid tor, the mana- gers supervised the subscription campaign. the selling of refreshments at the games, the solicita- tion of sponsors, and in general the making cer- tain that enough money was on hand to make the l'Anokan a 1954 storehouse of memories from Anoka High School. And because the book was a class project, just about every senior pitched in and helped in some way. Those who contributed in innumerable ways will never forget the fun of working together and the thrill ot' getting behind the t'Anokan and seeing it through to the finish Mr. Carroll John- son advised the entire project. KGHCJ Ld 5 l0CU a 8 HBAND! ATTENTION! O. K. HUGO, Line it up!, and thus started the 1953-54 season of the A.H.S. Band. Remember all the football games that the band marched at and all the pepfests they played and yelled at. Remem- ber when the band outyelled the whole student body? Oh, how can we forget? To those outside the band it was one of the organizations doing the most for the school spirit. I'll never forget the high- light of the marching season, Halloween. Boy, was that a day! Two parades, one rehears- al, and the game. We had com- petition that day, too, in the form of 'Bomba' and the Grand Rapids Band, but we were none the worse for it. And the tiger cage we formed with George Nold dressed as the tiger roar- ing to the tune of Tiger Rag. Yes, that was quite a day, but what I recall most was 'Anoka Night' at the Laker game, January sixteenth, when the band marched at the Min- neapolis Auditorium and was televised. Our high s p i r i t s didn't chill with the outside temperature of twenty below. BRR! Oh, and how about the foot- ball trip when we went to Still- water. We didn't get to march, but it was fun making the trip. You bet, and then how hap- py we all were when we found that we had passed our quota in magazine selling. No one thought we could sell three thousand dollars worth but we did, and got a beautiful plaque for it, too. I wonder how Tom Hilliard managed to sell so many subscriptions. The trip to the Ice Follies awarded to the top salesmen of ACAUO! acfiuifiea was surely fun. It made all the work worth while. Oh, and remember all the basketball games! It made you proud to lead the student body in 'Anoka Fight Song' and the 'Basket Song'. The Homecoming were real- ly tremendous this year. Play- ing the marches for all the beautiful attendants and the queens was really a thrill! Don!t forget the pop con- cert! It was the best event of the year for the band. Dick Walter as president, Paul Franke as vice-president, Dick Macko as secretary-treasurer, and JoAnn Strand, Jerry Her- berg, Dave Baugus, and Kenny Davis as class representatives on the band council supervised the committees which made the Pop Concert one of the milestones in the Band's his- tory. Then there were the dis- trict and state music contests. Anoka came home with so many 'A's' that they again proved that they were one of the top bands in competition. Wasn't Dick Walter a won- derful drum major? Charlie Crandall made a terrific field marshal, too. And the twirlers, Jackie Moran, Marilyn Meyer, and Judy Israel were really superb. Yes, they're all wonderful, but the secret of the success of the band lay in Mr. Johnson, who taught us musicianship above all else. Colleges that get people who have studied under him really appreciate the train- ing he gives us. He's tops. Hats off to him! Even Memorial Day is over and Commencement. Well, at least summer concerts are ahead so we can play once more. This year the chorus, under the able direction of Miss Ruth Hallenberg, has experienced another year of sparkling accomplishments. The chorus various soloists, and ensembles, not only enriched the school life but the community as well by appearing before church groups, P.T.A., and at other social functions. Sunday, December sixth, the chorus presented its last Christmas concert in the oldl' high school auditorium, to one of the largest audiences ever to attend such a function. It was a truly magnificent musical presentation. highlighted by a Christmas Cantata, The Nativityf' Eddie Brown, this year's accompanist, played the prelude to 'tThe Nativityf, Soloist, Ann Olson, sang While the Shepherds Watched Their Flocksng David Mason, George Zubulake, and Bob Potter sang the solos of the three wisemen in 'tWe Three Kings , while the mixed octette, girls' sextette, and boys, oc'- tette contributed several beautiful numbers. Mr. Bye gave his annual speech, and enough money was earned to buy ten new robes. On April second, the soloists and small ensembles sang in the district contest. Twelve soloists, the girls' sextette, girls' octette, boys' octette, and mixed octette were chosen in a preliminary contest and from there went on to the other contests. The girls' sextette was composed of Kay McCau- ley, Ann Olson, LaDonna All, Doris Walton, Judy Herberg, and Raeola Smith. The girls, octette was composed of the sextette plus Deanna Flint and Donna Daml. The boys' octette consisted of Eddie Brown, Gordon Lindgren, Robert Swanson, Robert Rither, Jerry Hall, Robert Potter, George Zubulake, and Robert Gerber. The members of the mixed octette were Kay McCauley, Pat Mullen, Doris Walton, Phyllis Jensen, Eddie Brown, Gordon Lindgren, Jerry Hall, and David Mason. Those who won A's,' in the district contest were allowed to go on to the state music con- test. At the state contest the chorus again made an enviable record. On April twenty-fourth. the mixed chorus and girls' glee club competed. The purpose of this section of the contest was not to win an opportunity to compete in the state contest, but just to receive constructive criticism by competent judges. In May came the spring concert with the music generally in a lighter vein. The beautiful formals of the girls brought a touch of spring into the auditorium. All members will remember this year as one of the very finest in the history of the chorus. The school and chorus are thankful for the sincere efforts of Miss Hallenberg and for the marvelous support given the chorus by the community. .x4n0LaAi Lelaf uri in orme If you've seen Betty Mattson and Barbara Pease, the co-editors of the Anokahi, busily engaged in conversation with Miss Fleischmann, their ad- viser, you can bet they were working out details for the next Anokahi.

Some of the most ambitious scientific giants of Anoka High School have been turning out to the meetings of the .lunior Acad- emy of Science. Capably led by Terrance Mitchell, President, and Nancy Schlafge, Secretary-Treasur- er, and under the guidance of Mr. Greengo, the club has experienced a successful year. They have been working on many different projects. One in- triguing project, a cyclotron, was made by Joel Baumgartner and displayed at the Fourth Annual Science Congress at St. Cloud Teachers College this spring. The club has gained much scientific knowledge through co-operation with one another. All along the way they have had a lot of fun. dckoof A 0 Opportunities are given for spir- itual growth and expression in this non-denominational club. Al- though a small group, they felt that there is a definite place in a busy school for an organization which places emphasis on Chris- tian fellowship. A lighter side to its yearly activities was the Hal- loween party. Mr. John Johnson advised the group with the assistance of Nan- cy Schlafge, president, and John Look, secretary-treasurer. if l l The 18 members of the Stamp Club met on each Monday noon in order to exchange ideas on col- lecting stamps and to show each other what new possibilities were open in this fascinating hobby. Their adviser, Mr. Buehler, helped with short talks on the important phases of collecting. During the year they had contests, in which they divided into teams, the win- ner of which was given an award. They also planned an exhibit, more collections of U. S. stamps old and new, and encouraged topical col- lecting. Because of its program, members discover that collecting is fun as well as informative and that the ways of building up a col- lection are extremely varied. cjvlegaevl uri earn cloing If you sec a new pin or medal this year, it's likely one of the new Science Club emblems. Some fifty members are proudly sporting them because of membership in a club which success- fully combines fun with serious ac- tivities. Highlights of the year were Dr. Breckenridge's nature talk, the Easter vacation trip, and the annual picnic, With Jack Crawford as pres- ident: Don Hardle, vice-president: Betty Mattson, secretaryg David Dil- cher, treasurer: Terrence Mitchell, program chairman: and Mr. Greengo, adviser: the club finished a most suc- cessful year. X - i 2 The Ilome Economics Club started oil' the year by making beanies for the football homecoming and selling cheerios during the noon hour. In this way they were able to purchase table cloths to brighten up the Home Ec. department. The annual Christmas banquet and the ice and roller skating parties pro- vided recreation for the members. Club officers were Joan Noreen, president: JoAnn Miller, vice-presi- dentg Helen Cox, secretaryg and Jean- ette Miller, treasurer. Jeanette Daly and Elaine Emmans were point chair- men.

These girls proved this year what a dependable and useful group they are.

Verbs, prepositions and idioms seem so difficult but are so much fun when they are mastered and are used in everyday speech. But learning a new language also opens the doors to a better understanding of the customs and lands of Span- ish speaking people.

E S A iss- Lgzcclenfd exce! in ramafic l The Thespian Society is a national organization whose membership is earned by conduct, leader- ship, cooperation, scholarship and just plain hard work. Membership is also earned on the point basis, with fifteen points as a minimum. They are earned in various ways, such as, one for every ten lines in a play, one for every ten tickets sold for a play, and one for every ten hours spent working on the play in some capacity. It is also possible for one to earn 100 or more points thus making one an Honor Thespian. The people chosen to direct the clubls pro- ceedings for the year are: Gary Kurilla, presi- dentg Mary Ann Frazier, vice-presidentg Leanne Driscoll and Betty Ruth Mattson, co-secretaries, and Coleen Kerns, treasurer. Due to the crowded conditions of classes, the Thespians haven't accomplished as much as they would have liked to do, and this has created keen competition for leading and character roles in the plays. The melo-drama, Under the Gaslightf' was the first major production given by the Speech Department on November 20-21 at the High school. The play was a success due to an excel- lent cast headed by Jack Crawford, as one of the New York bloods of that timeg Audrey Gow, as one of the Belles of Societyg Charles Coler, as the villaing and Bev Bunker, as the right hand of the villain. The supporting cast was Margareta West- man, Joeanne Slater, Jack Blesi, and Deanna Noll. Dick Walter did a very good job as Master of Ceremonies for the numbers between acts. Betty Ruth Mattson was the student director. The next production was Room for One More given the beginning of March. Betty Ruth Mattson was given the leading role as the mother. Gary Allen, as Joey, Leanne Driscoll, as .Ianeyg Raeola Smith, as Bettyg and Chuck Bowers, as Jimmy John supported by Eleanor Meyer, Margie Schwandt, Virginia Jacobson, David Larson, Co- leen Kerns, and Wendell Beckman. The play will be under the direction of the practice teacher Miss Jean Moland, and student director, Mar- gareta Westman. Aside from the good feeling derived from a play well given and well received, this group of Thespians will always remember the gay festive spirit, the colorful costumes, the flashing eyes and smiling faces of friends and proud parents. The little incidents have caused many a giggle and a few deep blushes. Torn skirts, falling hoops, misplaced props, memory lapses, hasty ad-libs, and many others contributed to a general gaiety that did much to make a 'thappy familyf' They will remember too, the get togethers after the plays and the little glow they got inside when Miss Hoglund praised them for a task well done. They will remember the patience, under- standing and even the occasional scoldings she gave them. And they will always thank her for the lessons she taught them through the me- diums of speech and play acting. Several Christmas programs were given by the speech students to P.T.Afs, Womenis Clubs, and various other organizations. Immediately after Christmas vacation the stu- dents concentrated on preparing for the one-act play and speech contest held in the Spring. .f4fALfic6 Athletics at Anoka High School .... is color, ex- citement, thrills .,.. exuberant Cheerleaders, dress- ed in maroon and grey .... the band playing Tor- nado Rag .... students shouting, cheering, stand- ing to sing the school song .... a capacity-filled auditorium .... tense, hushed moments at the end of a closely-fought game .... boys from our classes changed into athletes .... dressed in football jerseys or basketball shorts or another uniform .... playing with teamwork .... fighting to win .... heart- breakin defeats and 'ubilant victories .... new 2 J trophies added to the trophy case .... homecom- ings .... beautiful queens and their attendants .... good sportsmanship and school spirit .... the A Club and the National Honor Society .... this is ath- letics at Anoka High School.

There were 41 boys that reported for the first workout, and they all worked very hard trying to get ready for the first game. During the first two weeks the team scrim- maged Edina, Robbinsdale and St. Cloud Ca- thedral. Anoka's squad breezed through the first five games with three wins against only one loss to Columbia Heights and one tie to St. Louis Park. The last half of the season was not quite so suc- cessful as the Tornadoes lost three straight games. The first game of the year pitted the green Tornadoes against the seasoned St. Louis Park team. It looked as if experience would be the telling factor in the game as Park scored first but that didn't stop Anoka, The boys kept fighting until finally with only thirty seconds remaining in the game, Ade Beltrand, behind the best block- ing of the game, ran wide around right end and scored the tying touchdown. The next game was played at Columbia Heights. Although the team tried right up to the final gun, they could not push across the goal for the needed touchdown. The final score was seven to six, with Heights the victor. The team was really up for the next game with Hastings as it was Hastings which had upset the Tornadoes homecoming of the year before. After a very hard fought game, Anoka came out on top seven to six. The next game was played at So. St. Paul. It was the Packers' homecoming and they really wanted to win that game. Anoka, however, came from behind in the second half to defeat Page sixty-four Q she them thirteen to six. The following week was the Tornadoes, home- coming. Anoka's opponent was West St. Paul. This time the boys won as Coach Nelson cleared the bench in the final quarter. The final score was nineteen to six. At this stage of the game Anoka was considered a title contender mainly because of their fine defensive showings. No team had scored more than one touchdown against them. In the next three weeks the Anoka picture took a turn for the worse as they lost their last three games to put them out of the championship picture. With Stillwater, the Anoka defense only let up twice, but each time the Ponies scored. It was a big enough margin and they won fourteen to nothing. Dad's Day was the following week. and the boys were all out to show their Dads they could play football. They tried but the powerful White Bear team ended up on top with a score of twenty-seven to zero. The final game of the year and also the final game for the seniors on the squad was the Pump- kin Bowl. Here Anoka's opponent was a very strong Grand Rapids team. Anoka's stubborn de- fense folded in the last half and Grand Rapids came on to win nineteen to six. As the end of the season came around, Anoka had placed three men on the All-Conference teams, Jerry Hall and Roger Hedstrom making the first team and Ade Beltrand placing on the second team. All in all it was a very good season for the Anoka squad. Much credit should be given to Coach Stan Nelson, who did a big job during his first season at Anoka.

They dropped the first two games by one touchdown margin, losing to St. Louis Park, 7-0, and White Bear, 13-7. The Stillwater and Columbia Heights games both ended in ties 6-6 and 7-7. After these defeats the boys caught fire by downing So. St. Paul 20-13 and drubbing Ramsey in the final game 27-0. The team showed steady improvement throughout the year and should do a fine job of filling the vacancies of graduating varsity members. The Bomber squad, coached by Charles Zwie- ner and Jerome Wagner, are showing great promise as grid stars of the future. The 65 boys out have played three intersquad games. A A . Q X . .

Judy Hagen and Sally Bune were train bearers, and Robert Olson proudly carried in the football hel- met with which the queen was crowned. Homecoming festivities really got under way in the evening before homecoming, with the pep meeting at Bridge Square, the snake dance, bon-fire, and B Squad game. A pep band, with rolled-up pant legs, marched through the streets and did the Bunny Hop across the field at half time. Captain Jerry Hall crowned Queen Audrey at the program the next afternoon. Duane Schulte presented our queen with flowers, Dick Walter gave her history, and Bob Potter sang her favorite song, Tenderly.'i The German Band played several of their selections under the direction of Von Herberg. Everyone roared as Dick Mackovitch wiggled his toes in time to the music. Pep talks and cheers brought the assembly to a close. The Homecoming parade built around the slogan of Settle the Westw followed the assembly. Taking first prize honors was the G.A.A. float. Anoka defeated West St. Paul in the game played at Goodrich Field that evening. At halftime, Queen Audrey and her attendants appeared at the field in convertibles. The band formed two lines across the field and Queen Audrey was escorted between them by Dick Walter and Charles Crandall to the tune of You, You, You.

Jack CampbelI's. capable coaching and many hours of hard practice made this excellent record possible. Early in November our basketball team began to practice. From the twenty-seven boys who re- ported to those practices the fifteen members of our A Squad were chosen. Among those selected were five returning lettermen, Jerry Hall, Ron Kish, Bob Youngquisf, Dick Hartfiel, and Dick Walter. After three scrimmages with Robbins- dale and much practice, the team was ready for their first game. Our first game, December 4, proved that all the preparation paid off for the Tornadoes romped over Ramsey by a score of 69 to 26. By winning the next three consecutive games, Anoka made a clean sweep of the pre-Christmas season. During Christmas vacation, the team made their annual trip. This year the Tornadoes trav- eled to Coleraine, Minnesota, where they suf- fered their first defeat at the hands of Green Bay High School, 63 to 59. The fine floor play of Jerry Hall and Ron Kish helped us make the first game after Christmas vacation with Elk River an Anoka victory. Our first conference defeat was handed us by a powerful South St. Paul team. After a hard- fought battle, Anoka was handed its next confer- ence defeat by the Hastings Raiders. Then the Tornadoes came back into the winning column Page seventy by routing White Bear, 57 to 38 but dropped the next game to Braham, 75 to 63. A hard-fought thriller was the game with Still- water. Excitement ran high in the capacity-filled auditorium as the Ponies edged out Anoka 57 to 54 in the third overtime. The Tornadoes went on to win their next three games over Ramsey, Co- lumbia Heights and West St. Paul. The South St. Paul at Anoka game proved to be just as exciting as predicted. Throughout the game the Tornadoes held their own, only to have the Packers eke out a two-point victory in the final minutes of the game. Anoka's next three games with Hastings, Bra- ham, and White Bear were all Tornado victories. In the last game of the regular season, they were defeated by Stillwater by the lopsided score of 65-48. Anoka played Mora in the first game of the district tournament and was defeated by the heart-breaking score of 53 to 52. Backing up our starting line-up were some fine reserves who did an excellent job whenever they were needed. After watching these boys, we can be sure Anoka will continue to have good teams in the future. Our basketball managers, who sported their flashy yellow corduroys and blue-trimmed sweat- ers at all the games, were Duane Schulte and Jack Reeve. Much credit goes to these two boys for the help they gave our team. The 1953-54 basketball team can be proud of the record they left at Anoka High School. Page seventy-one 6Z?v.SD?uac! .gylzowd jiglzfing lairif This yearis B Squad, coached by Mr. Wanna- maker, ended the season with a record of 10 wins and 8 losses. Chuck Weinnerlund was the team's leading scorer as he dropped the ball through the hoop for an average of over 15 points per game to make a season total of 227 points. The first game of the year pitted the Torna- does against a green Ramsey five. With Wenner- lund leading the way, Anoka defeated Ramsey 39-31. The second game was another victory for Anoka as we rolled over Milaca 46-30. Our first defeat came at the hands of Columbia Heights, 41-29. Anoka stayed in the losing col- umn by dropping the next game to West St. Paul, 26-24. The Tornadoes defeated Elk River, 30-24, but were toppled again in the next game by South St. Paul by the lopsided score of 35-17. The boys then traveled to Hastings where they were defeated by the score of 39-24. Page seventy-two The Tornadoes bounced back in the next game to defeat White Bear, 30-26. Staying in the win- ning column Anoka traveled to Braham where the final score read Anoka, 55, Braham, 43. Anoka went on just about breaking even in the won and lost column until they met Hastings for the second time and defeated the Raiders, 46-44. The next win came at the expense of Braham. Anoka won this one, 37-24. Anoka rolled over White Bear by a 47-35 score and showing vast improvement in the last game of the season, the Tornadoes defeated Stillwater, 43-36. The season ended with the B Squad riding on a four game win streak. As we look back on the season record we see that there are many boys who will star on Anoka basketball teams in the future. Congratulations to a great coach and a fine team for a job well done.

The winsome little train bearers were Kathy Riley, Jackie Larson, Tommy Ward, and Ronnie Hannig. The attendants were escorted onto the glittering snow sprinkled stage through a green-trimmed arch- way to begin the afternoon assembly program. Every- one rose to their feet as the king and queen marched in to take their places and be crowned. Bob Young- quist crowned our charming queen, and Raeola Smith crowned our deserving king.

Bob Potter sang our queen's favorite song, Stardust and our king's favorite song, Ten- derly was played by Eddie Brown. A hilarious faculty skit, which gave us a glimpse of Anoka's 1984 cheer- leaders, was one of the highlight's of the program. A few zany selections by the German Band followed. Pep talks by Mr. Campbell and George Red Reyn- olds, brought the assembly to a close. Homecoming became a perfect success when the Tornadoes defeated Columbia Heights.

After a series of tough games, which included some brilliant playing, they brought home the cham- pionship trophy for District 16. The Tornadoes began their season on April 23 at Columbia Heights. The Heights scored five runs in the first inning and then added three more in the second and went on to win 12-7. The following week the boys played at Robbinsdale. Next was the game at Park Street diamond where Anoka continued on its F winning ways with a lopsided 7-1 victory. The Tornadoes were rained out of their game with St. Paul Central and then lost a toughy to South St. Paul 11-2. The Tornadoes traveled to Stillwater to play the Ponies, and although Schake pitched a good game, Stillwater proved that they were a little too tough, the final score being 5-3. Anokais last conference game of the season was played at home against White Bear. The Tornadoes literally threw this one, the final score adding to 7-3. Anoka had little trouble in the District as they downed the Princeton nine by a score of 12-6. The next game was by far the longest of the seasong and as far as can be found out, this was the longest game in the history of Anoka High. The final score after seventeen innings of play was 3-2 in favor of the Torna- does over Braham. Hovet had 31 strikeouts. The Tornado nine played Cambridge in the District finals which they won very deserviiigly by a score of 15-2. In the first game of the region Anoka drew St. Paul Washington. Washington scored five runs in the first inning and three more in the second. It was more than enough as they went on to win 10-1. The team was very fortunate in having two great coaches to help them to victory. During the regular season Mr. Anderson whipped the team into shape, while Mr. Gilberfson gave his able assistance for the playoffs. l aCL teal!! Hia ed 9006! 5A0lllll'lg The Anoka High School Track team started off the season by journeying to the Faribault Relays. Here Jim Dale set a new record for the shot by putting it 47 feet 110 inches, while Gary Kurilla ran 3rd in the mile and Fred Mor 5th in the 220. The team next participated in a triangular meet along with Stillwater and Hastings. Anoka came in second behind Stillwater as firsts were taken by Kurilla in the mile, Dale in the shot put event, Mor in the 100 yard dash and Montague in the pole vault. The seniors won an interclass track meet although they had only two first places to the juniors nine. After a fine season, Anoka went on to cop the Princeton-Elk River-Anoka meet by a wide margin. Returning lettermen were: Gary Kurilla, John Bell, Jim Dale, Jim Gabrick, and Eugene Montague. Congratulations to coach Bill Wannamaker for a fine season. He is looking forward to another winning team.

In a return match Anoka was again downed by pow- erful Stillwater. In the Suburban tournament Anoka finished second right behind Stillwater but ahead of South St. Paul and Hastings. In the Regional Match Anoka finished third behind Cen- tral, who went on to take the state and Still- water. Letter winners were John Reynolds, Dick Walter, Jack Blesi and Chuck Bowers. Jack Craw- ford, Ron Kish and Jack Beggs were reserves.. Although this was only the second year that Anoka has competed in the Suburban Conference in hockey, the squad was loaded with underclass- men. When the season started, the team was even greener than the one from the previous year. The boys worked very hard all season and came close to winning many times but just couldn't come out on top. They played two over- time games, the first one with Minneapolis Voca- tional, losing by a score of 1-0. In the other over- time game with Robbinsdale, the boys lost 2-1. Our congratulations to Coach Alley who did a fine job whipping the team into shape during his first year at Anoka. With many veterans back next season and with his splendid coaching, Anoka will have a first class team. Page seventy-eight wdedfdrd ya ace in :Sfafe fournamen The matmen certainly did a fine job this year placing as the top team in Region 4.

Individual winners of the regional were Henry Bird, Bob Board, Stan Wilson, Ade Belfrand, Bill Horbal, Don Hardle, and Bill Dale. Second place holders from Anoka were Charles Wilson, Joe Kline, Dick Board, and Gordy Lindgren. On February 26 and 27, Bird, Board, Wilson, Belfrand, Horbal, Hardle, and Dale wrestled in the state tournament at Williams Arena. As a result Anoka tied for third place for the state of Minnesota. Hardle, Horbal, and Wilson took second places with Bob Board as third in the state tournament. Next year Mr. Lappin is looking forward to an even more outstanding team, with wrestlers such as Bob Board, Dick Board, Stan Wilson, Bill Hor- bal, Joe Kline, Henry Bird, and Alfred Scott all returning. P ge eigh Lgnframura laroui ed afALfic5 Ar cz 'Y Intramural sports give all the boys a chance to participate in athletics. The intramural season began with basketball. At 7:15 each morning the schedule got under way. Because of the great number of good teams this year, the A League was split into the A and AA Leagues. The Royals, consisting of Schulte, Franke, Hedstrom, Lehman, and Swan- son, took top honors in the MAA League with the Bullets placing second. Duane Schulte was high scorer in the league with 107 points. In the A League the Hooplaws took first place with the Avalanchers a close second. Lar- son, Nygaard, Nicklow, Hanley, Hovind, and Coler made up the Hooplaws team. Dick Macko with 110 points was high scorer in the league. The Seven X's were the champions of the B League which consists of 9th and 10th graders. High scorer in the league was Wolff with 87 points. Some good prospects for our future A squads may be found in the HC League. The Jr. Fairylanders were the top team in this league, followed by the Doodle Bums. Vaughn's Bowling Alley was used to carry out the intramural bowling program this year. The winning team was the Whiz Kids. consisting of Larson, Strand, Herberg, Gamm, and Bergeron. Mike Rich and Don Blaska were two of the top bowlers. Later in the year intramural volleyball teams were formed and for several weeks they battled for the championship. Mr. Nelson deserves much credit for his hard work to make intramural activities a success.

Today I graduated. And yet, it seems that only yesterday I came to Anoka High School. Actually it was six years ago. I was a seventh grader, then, lost, be- wildered, and a little afraid at first but quickly adjusting to high school life. By the time I became a ninth grader, I was ready to assume the leadership of the junior high. Then, I became a Sophomore. I was glad to be counted as one of the upper-classmen. But the years went so quickly. It seemed my junior year had just begun when Prom-time came. And Poge eighty-eight the next fall, I was a Senior with all the privileges and responsibilities it incurs. It was fifty years ago that the first class came to Anoka High School. Ever since then, classes have Walked down the aisle and up onto the stage. They have received their diplomas and left. But a new senior high school is being built where next year's class will graduate. I was the last to walk down the aisle and up onto the stage. You see, I am the Class of nineteen hundred and fifty fourg and today I graduated. Qgafqiugf jg on. -OMJU wb fffffw W f 354 ww' 9 W 310414 L W' QWJWA 5 G'P5Qf5gp'Yy4Q 1 cb MM W ,M Wywfgggf 5 viii wi?
