All day long each day of the year It Hoats thru sun and rain Deep in its folds it reveres the dear VVho fought for Old Glory, but not in vain. It was the day after the Fourth, Il dreary, rainy day. The streets were dirty, covered with the mud of people's feet. Tiny rivulets were running down the curbs. - A flag, that had been dropped by some one during the parade the previous day, lay in the mud, trampled on again and again under the muddy feet of the crowd. It was a small, silk flag, now ragged and dirty. A party of three pretty girls came walking down the street. They nearly stepped on the Hag, half hidden in the mud at their feet. "Oh, here's a dag, let's pick it up l" said the hrst girl. "VVhy no, not that dirty thing!" said the second, and they walked on. A well-dressed old gentleman came walking behind the girls. He was looking up at the cloudy sky. The innocent Hag with its broken stem, nearly caused the old gentleman to trip and fall. "I wonder why in the world these street-cleaners don't keep the sidewalks clear," he muttered to himself as he kicked the Hag forward. Tommy, a dirty, ragged, freckled-faced boy, with a bundle of newspapers under his arms was yelling out his evening papers. He, like the old gentleman nearly fell over the Hag. 'WVell, Old Glory," he exclaimed loudly, "what are you doing here in the mud? 'Why aren't you waving somewhere on high and show your spirit? America's not down and never will be." He stooped down, and picked it up. Holding it in one hand and laying down his papers,he took out his jack-knife and with his other hand carved a slit in a lamp-post standing near by. He then stuck the flag in the lamp- post, saluted it, picked up his papers, and went whistling down the street. ELSIE NVILDE. Rain and Forest It was a dark rainy dayg one that we so often see during the latter part of june. The rain fell slowly and in a way that seemed to say, "More is coming." The large forest which had suffered severely during a period of drought now began to freshen up. The animals had all scurried for shelter when the storm be- gan, and nothing could be seen except plants, trees, and a small brook whose water supply had been replenished by the rain. The rain pattered softly on the leaves of the trees and filled the brook with a certain cheeriness, making small rip- ples that chased each other merrily, then lost themselves in the steady onward flow of the stream. The flowers raised their heads thirstily to the cool, refreshing rain drops. The grass which had been a dull brown the day before, was now changing to a soft green carpet, with innumerable Bowers hexe and there peeping thru the surface. All nature with out-stretched arms nodded and seemed to say, "Oh beautiful rain !"

In a few weeks came the biggest event of our Freshman year-the Freshmen party. Being the first thing of the kind we had ever attempted, we naturally were rather worried, but it was linally successfully concluded. After this we really be- gan to settle down and get acquainted, and many of us made friends who were to be our intimates during all our high school career. W'e closed our tirst year with a picnic at Birch Lake, and left the school building with bright anticipations of the next year. VVe were all eager to get back to school in the fall of 1923, as there were to be several new teachers. As Sophf omores, we began to really realize what work meant. A few had dropped out dur- ing our Freshman year, but at the end of our Sophomore year, the class remained practically intact. The Sophomore Ball was a masquerade given on February 11, and was voted a great success by the rest of the high school. The class held their second annual picnic on a cold day in May, and parted looking forward to our Junior year. VVe entered into our junior year with the determination to make it our best year yet. A Junior was elected President of the Student Body. At the end of the li-asketball season some inter-class games were played at the pavilion. Both boys' and girls' games were won by the Juniors, much to the chagrin of the Seniors. The last day of school was a sorrowful one for all of us, because Miss Carney, our beloved principal, and Mr.Clark, our superintendent for three years in school, were leaving. Seniors! At last we were at the top, and with the largest class up to this time, ever to be graduated from the lilk River High School. The Seniors were to have the annex at the back of the room, and there was a grand scramble for the best seats. After a few days of merely "getting acquaint- ed" with the new teachers, we settled down to "work." At the end of the foot- ball season the Senior boys challenged the--rest of the High School to a football game, and the Senior girls offered to feed the boys if they won. The game ended as a tie, but the boys got their feed anyway. Those who represented the Senior Class in athletics were: james Mclciride, Lawrence Cornelius, Burton Carlson, Kenneth Schmidt, Richard Halter, Norman Spear, Russell Swanson, Martin Charvat, Ralph Kiichli, NVillard Cherveny, Mildred Jaeb, Helen Trask, Lois Bailey, and Doris Middlestadt. After the class play and the excitement accompanying it was over we settled down to study for our final examinations. Commencement night was a big occasion for all of LIS, and even after it was over, it seemed hard to realize that we really weren't going to be back next year. The Senior Class of 1926 extend their best wishes for a happy and successful high school career to all those who come after them. Page Sixteen EL CLASS PROPHECY Portland, Oregon, Feb. 7, 1932. Dear Mildred, I recently found out that you were still in Iflk River and was glad of your success as a milliner. There are many of our former classmates out west to grow up with the country. They are living in Portland, and I see a great deal of them. Arnold lingstrom, who lives next door to me, is director of the Portland Municipal Band. ln this band are several of our friends, including Donald Nelles, "solo" snare drummer, Howard Murray, baritone, and Doris Middlestadt, saxaphone "wizard," Ralph Kiichli pitches for the Portland Baseball Club and is going to the major leagues next year. Last summer I took a trip to Hollywood and was surprised to hnd that the great "Sonya Barre," who plays opposite Herman Bargabus in all his great film masterpieces is none other than .lilva Page. VVhen I congratulated Elva and Herman on their success, they said that all the credit was due their director, Leo Plude. I spent the afternoon with Herman and his publicity agent, VVillard Cher- veny. They told me that Helen Trask was one of Mack Sennett's bathing beauties, and that Kenneth Schmidt was a broncho buster in Arizona. On my way back to Portland, I stopped in San Francisco to bid farewell to Allen Kurrasch and Albin Keays, who were about to embark as missionaries to the Fiji Islands. Mildred Lloyd was also at the wharf to bid good-bye to the mis- sionaries. lVIildred is now president of the California Anti-Saloon League and is ably assisted by Elsie hfVllllE and Lucille Youso. She invited me to her home for dinner. Sherman Sachs is the butler and Vivian Powell the maid. I rode back to Portland on the "Storm Cloud," a commercial seaplane which is piloted by Norman Spear. If you find out anything about our other classmates, write and let me know. Your former classmate, LOIS DUNN Elk River, Minn., Feb. 27, 1932. Dear Lois, I was astonished and yet very glad to hear from you. I had been wondering what had become of you and the others. In telling about the others you neglested to give an account of yourself, but Gladys Blanchette, who is teaching in Anoka, told me you were an undertaker's assistant. - VVho do you suppose is mayor of our fair city? None other than the majestic Lawrence Cornelius. His efficient secretary is Edith Meyers. Richard Halter is our dignified county attorney and Lois Hailey has inherited her father's position, Register of Deeds. Oh, our former classmates have a large interest in the govern- ment here! Page SFTCII tcm james McBride left for Ireland a few weeks ago and already a revolution is threatening to upend the whole country. . Martin Charvat is running a bus line from the Lake Ann Resort to Zimmer- man and iinds it a prolitable business. A romance of school days finally matured a little over a year ago when Bur- ton Carlson, our local Methodist pator, and Margaret Anderson were married. To all outward appearances they are peaceful and happy. Florence Lange, after a brief diplomatic career in lfVashington, D. C., met and married Prince Olaf of Sweden. Dr. Russell Swanson, Ph.D., L.L.D., is practicing medicine in Orrock and is beginning to show 'brilliance in his line. Marjorie Taylor and Daisy Thompson have taken up professional speaking careers and are, just now, touring the state in Louise Schwanbeck's behalf. Louise is running for Governor on the F arm-Labor ticket. "Frances Nelson" is no more. Her new name is Mrs. Percival Archibald De Clancey. The De Clanceys, I understand, are the social leaders of Gottsboro, Utah. ' Now that we have found each other, let's write often, Lois. ' ' Affectionately, your old friend, , MILDRED JAEB.

The girls dominated by a score of thirty-three to twenty-two, but this score was quickly evened up when some of' the upper class- men caught sight of our handsome young damsels. After several weeks of constant blundering and still more constant razzing by the sophomores, we became firmly settled. Not knowing any better we elected the following officers to serve as our class officials: President, Henry Clark, Vice-President, Lucille Healy, Secretary, Hazel Morgan. and Treasurer, Eugene Murray. Although the Freshmen are usually noted for making blunders, it was tar from a blunder when We picked Miss Arnold as our class advisor. The Sophomores as usual were given the task of initiating us into the won- ders of High School life. The Sophomores did their duty and upheld in a very capable manner the reputation of Sophomores for preparing a stiff initiation for the Freshmen. VVe Freshmen acted as good sports and carried out all the tasks assigned us. Of course we attributed this to our standards of sportsmanship, while in reality we were scared almost to death. On Hallowe'en we staged the animal "Freshmen Party," which was voted a great success by every one except Mr. Clark, who spent most of the night pumping up his tires, the air having escaped in some mysterious manner. The next social event staged by the class was the picnic held at Big Lake in the early part of june. This proved to be a still greater success than the party. As we departed from the schoolhouse, bearing report cards which were very artistic with their combinations of blue and red designs, we looked back and muttered, 'Tm glad that's over," and resolved to inaugurate into E. R. H. S. in 1924, a new method of initiating the Freshmen, which would give us ample re- venge. Eugen, O. Little. Page T'zw11fy-Iwo EL Chapter II. VV hen we entered the assembly room September 7, 1924, and took our places in the section assigned to the Sophomores, we felt as if we were now part of the High School. The class-roll had decreased to forty-three, there being twenty-four girls and nineteen boys. For several weeks we were content to shun the Freshmen, but we were no exception to the rule that Sophomores must domincer the Freshmen. Consequent- ly, after the first class meeting at which the following officers were elected: President, Eugene Murrayg Vice-President. Edward Gammg Secretary, Ruby Vtfaltersg Treasurer, Herbert Greupner, we proceeded to prepare an initiation that would go down in history on the same plane as the "Boston Massacre." When the initiation program was submitted to our class advisors, Miss Arnold and Mr. Belsheim, they declared the program too severe and proceeded to weed out the more desperate measures including the beheading of the Freshmen class president and the hanging of their secretary. After our class advisors had censored the program to their satisfaction, we held the initiation. It proved to be a very tame affair. The Freshmen did their part like faithful slaves and we Sophomores superintended the thing like slave drivers, eager to correct and slow to praise. The next event for which blame was placed on us, was the Sophomore Ball. This party, a masquerade, was held in February with the post-graduates as the guests of honor. Everyone present declared the party a rousing success, and truthfully said, "I had a good time." The annual picnic was again held at Big Lake, everyone having a good time including Mr. Belsheim, who captured first honors in a stone skipping contest. Chapter III. VVhen school opened last fall we found ourselves Juniors, upper-classmen at last. VVe took the seats on the north side of the assembly room, but were recent- ly transferred to the annex,due to the removal of the Seniors to their private room for the purpose of escaping the contaminating influence of the other classes. Again our numbers had dwindled and there were but forty of us when school opened. Three of this forty have dropped out, leaving a grand total of thirty- seven. The girls have the majority, there being twenty-one of the gentle sex and only sixteen boys. Shortly after school started I1 meeting was called and the following officers elected: President, Lucille Healy: Vice-President, Emma Dobbins, Secretary, Evelyn Cornelius, and Treasurer, Anna Marie Gaffney. Miss Studnicka and Mr. Ireland were chosen class advisors and it appears that we made a wise choice. Athletically our class ranks high. The various teams we have contributed: Edward Gamm, star half-back on the eleven, forward on the basketball team, and the best baseball pitcher in the districtg Herbert Greupner, captain-elect of next year's football team, and second baseman on the baseball nine, Richard Goodin, quarterback in football and forward on the basketball quintg Robert McNabb and Dwight Moyer, tackles on the football machineg and last, but not least, David Daniels, who was center on the basketball team until he was forced to retire be- cause of old age. The class's athletic reputation has been ably upheld on the girl's basketball team by Harriet Nickerson and Emma Dobbins, stellar guards, and by Leta Thomas, whose ability as forward is unquestioned. Our class although not the smartest in the world, we hope is not the dumb- est, and if all of us survive the summer, we will have the largest class that ever graduated from dear old E.R.H.S.

E OC16 I I SOCIETY On the evening of October 3rd, Mr. and Mrs. Cooper entertained the Senior Psychology Class at a party. Mr. Cooper told us Something of the tricks of magic and mind-reading. Some stunts were tried, games were played and a de- licious lunch was served at 11 o'clock, after which we went home all feeling that Mr. and Mrs. Cooper were real sports--Kewpie smiled on all of us. , The Freshmen held a masquerade party at the school house on the evening of October 3rd, There were about forty-five Freshmen present, most of whom were in costumes. The evening was spent in dancing. Many of the Freshmen boys made their first attempt this night. The Grand March was led by Miss For- ester and Miss Studnicka, who were dressed as twin clowns. Mrs. Parsons led the Virginia Reel. A lunch consisting of sandwiches, cocoa, pumpkin pie and whipped cream was served. The Freshies are now well on the ropes of their new home. Football Banquet. To end up the football season, on the evening of November 24th, a banquet was held in the Home Economics parlors. The cooking girls prepared a very tempting dinner which was followed by short speeches from the football boys and members of the faculty. Mr. Cooper presented the letters to the boys. At eight o'clock more people came and an All High School Party was held. Some danced and others played games. a Later in the evening refreshments were served, thus the football season end- ed pleasantly. Big Banquet for Teachers by B. B. Girls. Miss Perlt, who left us January 23, was the honored guest at a banquet given for the teachers by the basketball girls. Yells were given by the girls, and the faculty returned in good style. A most excellent dinner was served, and the faculty voted the girls royal entertainers. Farewell Party for Miss Perlt. On the evening of January 22nd, a party was held in the I. O. O. F. hall in honor of Miss Perlt. The party started after the basketball game, and the Harmony Kings made their first appearance. At 11 o'clock, lunch was served, and a china tea set was presented to Miss Perlt by the Senior Class. Dancing con- tinued until l2 o'clock. Every one had a roaring good time. STUDENT GOVERNMENT ' - After we were settled last fall and had the regular routine going, Mr. Cooper and Mrs. Burns decided to try out a new plan of Student Goverment. An elec- tion was held and the following officers were chosen: President -------- A. Burton Carlson V ice President ------ Lawrence H. Cornelius Secretary -------- Lois G. Dunn Treasurer ------- Arnold M. Engstrom Executive Committee-5. Robert McNabb, Gladys Blanchette, and VVillard L. Nelson. As this plan did not seem satisfactory, it was decided that each class should elect two of its number to 1'epresent that class in an Executive Council. Those chosen were: Page T11 irty-four Seniors-Russell Swanson and Norman Spear. juniors--Helen Beck and Vllillard Nelson. . Sophomores-Catherine Carlson and XN'ilbur Taylor. Freshmen-Ethel' Kurrasch and Clayton Smith. This Council has been carrying on the business of the school. On December 10th, the Council made a trip to Minneapolis and visited the Bryant Junior and the Roosevelt Senior High Schools. Information was secured which has been of much use in developing our own Student Government. The organization has provided for the flooding of the skating rink, selling of season basketball tickets, and student corridor officers. Although the Student Government has not been in effect very long, it has done very well. VVith the co-operation of the students, by next year it will be able to manage the school and the teachers will only need to' act as instructors. As we make a success of it, cur school will win, not only state, but national renown. HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT Home Economics I. The girls in the Home Economics class have received a very practical train- ing in many new projects and have served dinners and luncheons to many groups. Among those whom the girls have served are: members of the Commercial Club, faculty, basketball and football banquets. The girls, becoming interested in Boys' and Girls' Club VVork, formed bread- making clubs and a garment-making club. Both clubs had demonstration teams which demonstrated their work in a contest at Becker, and in the fall, the mem- bers of the demonstrating team of the sewing club demonstrated at the County Fair. The members of the demonstrating teams were: Bread-making-Helen Baney and Gertrude Holzem, Gertrude Malmstrom and Luella Bobendrier. Sewing Club --Vernie Specht and Marie Kaliher. Home Economics II. The Home Economics II. girls in their "Dietetics and Meal Preparation," last spring received practical training in that they prepared and served meals for chil- dren and adults. This gave them good experience in estimating food costs. Miss Nolan, the new Domestic Science teacher, has been busy with the plan- ning for her classes. In the winter, the girls served two hot dishes for noon-lunch when formerly they served only one. The Domestic Science course has been very interesting and the girls consider their education in home-making and housekeeping invaluable. COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT This department has become one of the most active in our school. It prepares for practical business activities beside doing a great amount of work for the school and community. Some of our students this year are entering the district speed contest at St. Paul. HEALTH DEPARTMENT The aim of this department is to improve the health of the student body and develop strong, worthy bodies for a wholesome, active mind. VVe are verv seri- ously handicapped in that we have no gym in which to work but we have' hopes that our illustrious citizenship may soon rise to the occasion and build one.

Allen .Kurrasch Although the junior Hand is hardly heard outside of the Band room, it is just as essential to the regular band as a foundation is to a house, because this little Band is our future Band. The junior Band consists of twenty members. At first each new member is instructed privately to assure his getting the proper start and later is taken into the class. VVith the others he is then drilled on the fundamentals of music and on how to apply them to his instrument. Since clarinets are the predominating instru- ments in Band music, it has been arranged to have a large percentage playing clarinets. Next year those showing suflicient ability in handling their instruments will be admitted to the regular band. ' VVe have hopes for a High School orchestra next year under the direction of Mr. Elder. Page Tlzirly-six EL The Elk River High School Band, numbering twenty-eight pieces, has been a real success since its organization four years ago. Through the instruction and clforts of our present band master, Mr. Elder, the organization has exceeded all other years in development. More time has been devoted in the building up of a foundation than ever before, this being the most essential factor in band work. At the beginning of the school year the prospects for the band looked some- what discouraging. Only about a dozen young, ambitious-looking musicians re- ported for practice although there was plenty of material roaming about the school. Something was wrong somewhere and an investigation revealed the fact that this so-called material was so busy during school periods that they could not spare any time for band. This being the obstacle, the rehearsal period was chang- ed to the noon hour, which immediately brought results in the form of an increase in membership to almost thirty. Later the band gave evening concerts at Zimmerman and Becker. They played for the Anoka High School assembly, traveled to St. Cloud and played in the District Contest, where they won first place and a beautiful bronze medallion. On Friday, the first day of May, they played at the State Contest at Minne- apolis, where they won fourth place. On VVednesday, May 26, at 2:30 P. M., they played over VVCCO at the Nicollet Hotel, Minneapolis. Xvhile they were playing the director informed Mr. Cooper that it was the best high school band that had ever played over VVCCO, and invited the organization back to play on the evening of Friday, .lune 18, from 8:30 to 9:30 P. M. VK-le are indeed proud of our band of l926, and the honors which they have won for theyschool. The band's first appearance was at Monticello during a football game. Al- though this was not a pleasant trip due to the cold weather, the boys had such a good time watching the gridders defeat their up-river opponents that they forgot about the temperature. Their next performances were at two of the football games on the home grounds, plus numerous basketball games in the pavilion and informal entertainment in the assembly 1'oom. Below are some of the places where the Elk River High School Band has been heard: Milaca St. Cloud Minneapolis fltoys' weekj Mora Bertha Princeton VVaukon Clear Lake Big Lake Anoka Zimmerman Becker Four Radio Concerts, VVCCO Monticello Minnesota State Fair Roy Moos-"I think?"

Our big game of the season came on October 9th, when Anoka, our old time rival, came to Elk River. Anoka scored in the first quarter, but failed to make the point after the touchdown. Elk River's first chance came in the second quarter when Goodin tried a drop kick from Anoka's 40-yard line. This kick fell short, and Anoka fumbled the ball on her own 10-yard line. Elk River recovered and scored on a short pass from Goodin to Nelson. Goodin drop-kicked for the point after the touchdown and the half ended, Elk River 7, Anoka 6. In the third period Anoka scored again when Lippert, the Anoka center, broke the line and blocked a punt which rolled over our goal line when it was downed by an Anoka player. .Elk River tried hard to score in the remaining quarter, but the final whistle stopped their rally on Anoka's 20-yard line. Seniors O, Underclasses 0. A On November 4th, the Senior class team challenged a team representing the rest of the school to meet them in a grid battle. The game was hotly contested, and as neither team was able to gain ground regularly, both sides had to be content to share the honors equally. WHAT A FOOTBALL THINKS ABOUT DURING A GAME So many players handle me that I ought to be called a handball. I think they laced me up too tight in the back. I'm just like a woman-it takes a good line to stop me. I wish that referee would stop pawing me aroundg he's got warts on his left hand and they tickle. I sure am a "skin you love to touch." These fellows on the teams are always kicking about something, and I'm the something that's being kicked about. I may be passed, but as long as I don't pass out I'm satisfied. I seem to be the royal bouncer on this field, but the trouble is I never know which way I'm going to bounce. Many a woman would like to be hugged as often as I am. VVhat a nice pig I turned out to be. Miss Forester-"Where did you absorb those principles of yours-at your mother's knee ?" L. Moos fstanding for Leo or Louie, etc.j-"No, over my father's." Mr. Cooper-"VVell, Mr. Ireland, how is your football team coming ?" Mr. Ireland-"Like counterfeit money." Mr. Cooper-"VVhy, how's that ?" Mr. Ireland-"The halves are full of lead and the quarters won't pass." Lawrence C.-"Let's go- shooting birds, Doc." Kyle P.-"All right, I'm game." Lawrence C.-"Then why go ?"

' Elk River 15, Princeton 20. The next Friday, the team traveled to Princeton. Elk River played a fast game and deserved to win, but luck was against them, for Princeton won by a 20 to 15 score. Elk River 16, Monticello 20. On March 12th, the squad went to Monticello. The score of the tirst half was 9to3in favor of Elk River so four substitutes started the second half.

Elk River 21, Cambridge 12. Elk River went to Milaca on March 4th, to play in the district tournament. Their first game was with the fast Cambridge team, which was considered almost certain to get into the finals.

The Elks played their next game of the tournament with Anoka that evening. This game proved to be the biggest disappointment of the season as Elk River lost to the strong Anoka team.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL The li. R. H. S. girls were unusually interested in basketball this year. As a whole they showed n1ore team work, better co-operation, and better sportsman- ship, than they have in the past few years. A good record was made this year by the girls. They won most of their games, and those through which they met defeat were lost by only a few points. Miss Perlt, who coached for two full seasons and half of a third, was great- ly missed by the team, but her position was xery successfully filled by Miss Lund- gren. The players graduating are: Mildred hlaeb, Helen Trask, Doris Middlestadt and Lois Bailey. Record of Games Played. lilk River, 18 ...... ................................................... .... S t .

The season started rather early, with about forty boys out, which was more than usual, due largely to the Recreation Period. Many of the schools that had always been our rivals evidently made up their minds that we were too stiff competition, for they announced that they did not plan to play any hall this spring.
