R 5 Because our class is the last to graduate from this '
M high school, we have tried to record in, this book the 51 3
events of the present school year in such a way that ski.,
they will leave a lasting impression andvwill invoke EQ, Q X
many happy memories in years to come! f a
Without the co-operation of many people this
. yearbook could not have been a success. For this , '
- 1 reason, we wish to extend our sincere appreciation
R t to Mr. Johnson, our advisor, for giving us his willing 'E
l assistance, and advice, Bev and Darrell, for doing ofa,
such a swell job as business managers, David Bank X GX
Studios and Greene Engraving Co. for their under- Q L
standing help and the excellent job they did on our
pictures, North Central Publishing Co. for our print-
ing and binding, andi the Anokan staff for many
precious hours speintrinaxvgting our copy and doing
our art work. i X
Because of their untiring efforts to make this L
book possible, we can take pleasure in presenting '
to you the Anokan for 1954.

Through the years .... different faces with the
same friendliness written on them all .... the 3 R's
taught by constantly changing methods with the same
successful result .... the same willingness to help
and advise us in an ever widening scope of activities
and interests .... the same frowns for tardy and
gum chewing students .... the same cheerful man-
ner and ready smile on even the most trying days
. . . . the same unselfish dedication to helping us
learn .... from 1904 to 1954 they remain the same
. . . . symbols of knowledge, patience, and under-
standing .... for this we remember them ....

We sometimes fail to realize the im-
portance of what goes on in that little
room off the main office the second Mon-
day of every month. It is here that most
of the school's major problems are solved
by the very capable hands of the School
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
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.

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
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.
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
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

1954 . . . the magic number for 193 graduat-

dents, Margareta Westman from Sweden and
Kaisa Kotiaho from Finland. After twelve long
and adventurous years of anticipation they have
finally reached the top rung of the ladder, their
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-
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
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.
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"
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.

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

It seems that every year the Junior class is the
one most peppy and energetic. This year's class
of 223 students is no exception.
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.
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
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.

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

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

ketball homecoming attendants were Gail Shan-
non and Susan Scales, and to top football home-
coming, the eighth grade float won second prize

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
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.

Although many of them seem to think that the
7th grade must be the hardest, one look at these
346 students will assure you that they are having
a good time. 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,

Student Council officers are: Eddie
Brown. vice-president: Jerry Hall,
president: Jim Johansen. treasurer:
and Anne Alf, secretary.
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.

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

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

"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

ball trip when we went to Still-

py we all were when we found
that we had passed our quota

did, and got a beautiful plaque
for it, too. I wonder how Tom
Hilliard managed to sell so

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-

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.

year's accompanist, played the prelude to 'tThe Nativityf, Soloist, Ann

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
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.

Terrance Mitchell, President, and
Nancy Schlafge, Secretary-Treasur-

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

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

is fun as well as informative and
that the ways of building up a col-

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 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

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

The team coached by Stan Nelson and cap-
tained by Jerry Hall began practice at the fair
grounds on August 24. 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-
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
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
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
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
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

The Anoka High School "B" squad, coached by
Garth Lappin and Donald Thom, had a good sea-
son in football. 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.

Reigning over the 1953-54 Football Homecoming
festivities was our lovely queen, Miss Audrey Gow.
She was attended by Judy Erickson, 7th grade, Gail
Shannon, 8th grade, Anita DeJarlais, 10th grade, Gay
McDearmon, 11th grade, and Donna Siodin, 12th
grade. 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
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."
The annual homecoming dance brought home-
coming festivities to a close.

close. Jack CampbelI's. capable coaching and
many hours of hard practice made this excellent
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
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
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
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.

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
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.
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 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.
Jack Crawford gave the queen's history and Joe-
anne Slater enlightened us with some of the facts of
our king's past. 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.

In keeping with tradition, Anokals baseball team chalked up
another successful season. 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
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.

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.

The 1953 Anoka Hi h Golf team teed ofi' on
another season under the direction of Jack Camp-
bell by losing a close one to Stillwater. 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.

work. Congratulations go to Don Hardle, the cap-
tain of the wrestling squad, and to Mr. Garth

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

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
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.
