The Fargo Aeronautic Club, which was organized last May, has been
largely responsible for Fargo's being recognized in the field of aviation. This club
was formed for the purpose of promoting a greater Fargo and Northwest. The
establishing of the air field here, through the courtesy of Mr. Martin Hector, Presi'
dent of the Fargo National Bank, was aided by the club. Through its efforts also,
Governor Sorlie of North Dakota came to Fargo to speak at the dedication of
Colonel Charles Lindbergh's visit here, as well as Verne Roberts' entrance in
the National Air Derby, representing Fargo with the monofcoupe, GofFargofGo,
was sponsored by this club. Other planes which have stopped here as a result
of the recognition of Fargo in the air field are: the Stanolin plane, which belongs
to the Standard Oil Co., the Royal Typewriter plane, and the Cotton Duster.
The first air mail, sponsored by the ,Fargo Aeronautic Club, stopped here on
its way from St. Paul to Winnipeg. It is probable that Fargo will be placed on the
proposed northern transcontinental airplane route, and also will be on the proposed
north and south route between Winnipeg and Omaha, according to Murray Baldwin,
president of the Fargo Aeronautic Club. This route would connect at Omaha with
the transcontinental air mail route. Mr. Ewald of Sioux Falls, South Dakota,
is one of the backers of this proposed line. Fargo was also on the route of the
Class B planes of the National Air Derby last summer. Likewise, it will be on
the route of the Ford Reliability Tour to be held this summer.
Fargo has one of the three regularly used air ports of the present time, and of
the approximately twenty airplanes of North Dakota, Fargo has six. Its aviation club,
the Fargo Aeronautic Club has two hundred and fifty members. Also, the flat
territory here, with the generally favorable climatic conditions, makes Fargo's
prospects of being placed on important air routes excellent.
Some of the visitors brought to Fargo this year through aviation projects are
Mr. Balchen and Mr. Bennettl' who were on Commander Byrd's North Pole trip
and are also on the roll for the proposed coming South Pole flight as pilots. They
stopped here to take on gas while delivering seven Fokker Cabin ships to the
Canadian government for use in Northern Canada.
Fargo's reserve officers who belong to the air corps are: Capt. Gerald R. King,
Lieutenant Charles M. Page, Major Victor C. Parker, Major john Lee Coulter,
George N. Powell, Arthur W. Dahl, Irwin Kruger, and Verne L. Roberts.

Once upon a time fand this isn't a fairy storyj as bright, green Freshmen we
straggled through the main entrance of the famous Fargo High School and made our
initial appearance. This all happened in 1925. Unlike many of the other classes,
we began our high school career with a bang and now we are about to complete
it with a flourish. .
Knowing full well the trials and hardships we must undergo we elected Mary
McKone for president, with the assistance of Ralph Platou, Kenneth Wyard and
Bennie Mellen, to guide us along our treacherous course. Though we are not given
to boasting, we were quite an acquisition in the way of literary and athletic skill,
even at that early period.
As Sophomores, behold the mob! Note the proud, smiling faces that conceal
with difficulty, the delightful anticipation of giving in full measure to the Fresh'
men what we received when we were in the same predicament. Hamilton Simons
was our pilot. -
To us, our second year was more than welcome, since we were granted the
privilege of accepting membership in the societies and clubs. Many members of
our class were represented on the basketball and football squads, in hockey, tennis,
in the musical organizations, and even in debate.
Charles Brown was our leader during our Junior year. At this time, our
strength lay not only in our quantity-we have the largest classes recorded in
years-but also, in quality. As everyone knows, the third year signifies Hard
Work. Editing the Cynosure Annual and sponsoring the Junior Prom and Banquet
were the outstanding events. Everything that we undertook as Juniors was a
complete success, which is as it should be.
Then, the inale!
In the Senior A Class, there are many who belong to the National Honor
Society, the Harlequins, Phosterians, Kents, the Science, Quill, Radio and Palette
clubs. They will be missed in no small measure. ,
When we realize that we .are actually leaving Fargo High forever, and that
it is not merely an event in the distant future, the realization will not bring with
it overwhelming joy. There will be a sense of loneliness, a feeling of having lost
something infinitely dear. Yet-
"Time flies with a fleeting foot. There is no meeting-there is no parting."

A Tailor-Made Man is the story of the rise of john Paul Bart from a mere tailor's
presser to the position of general manager of a great shipbuilding company solely by his
powers of keen observation and his magnetic personality, All classes of society are here
represented from the German scholar, Dr. Sountag, to Mrs. Kitty Dupey, a luscious divorcee
of the four hundred, from Peter McConkie the grasping tailor's hand to Abraham Nathan,
President of the American Oceanic Shipbuilding Corporation.
Because John Paul is ready when his star rises, he takes advantage of the presence of
a dress suit and a good story and makes his way into the house of New York's exclusive
four hundred. Always destiny threatens to wreck his success. But at length the world takes
him out of the tailor shop for the big jobs which Napoleon left undone.

Another class in the history of Fargo High School has almost reached its
goal. Although we have yet another semester, we are confident we will have a
feeling of triumph and accomplishment on Commencement Day.
Our class is few in number yet it has made itself vvellfknown. We entertained
the graduating Seniors at a banquet and dance. The dance was carried out with
the idea of leap year. The favors were diamond rings and corsage bouquets.
Our parties in previous years varied. As Freshmen we had a costume party.
Our Freshman party represented all nations and people while our Sophomore party
represented only the Eskimos. Igloos, snowballs, and icicles were the decorations.
We found it impossible to give a Junior Dance because of lack of support.
Class advisers have found the members of our class willing to work and co'
operate in order to carry out our plans.

We, the Junior A Class have optimistic visions of graduating from this
institute of higher learning in the leafy month of June, 1929.
We feel that, at that time, we shall not have passed from Fargo High School
as a matter of form' but that we shall have established records that represent every
Held of activity.
We have shown some distinguishing characteristics of barbarism in football,
basketball, and kindred pursuits. We have such stars as Morris Long, Paul Airheart,
Charles Wilson, Ralph Weible, Robert Weir, Bennie Mellen, Martin Enders,
Ronald Kvenmoen, and Abe Miller.
In debate and oratory, we show many traits of ancient Rome. ln music, we
are most ably represented by such artists as Jean Pote, Margaret Ristvedt, and

Behold! This is the Junior Classflast year the small Sophomores and this
year the growing juniors.
This semester we took our place in the assembly, feeling very important, We
thought it was a great privilege to be able to sit among the Seniors instead of
the Sophomores. This exalted position has been achieved by much labor, but it
is worth it.
While we were Sophomores A's we gave a combined party and dance. This
party, under the advisership of Mrs. Carstens, was a great success.
Now that we are Juniors we will have the great honor of presenting the two
Junior dances and the JuniorfSenior hanquet. As yet we have not accomplished
very much toward any of this, hut just wait until the next semester, when we are
Junior A's. '

Another group of Sophomores arrived on schedule time at F. H. S., September
1, 1927, and were ofhcially enrolled as the class of June 1930.
We were rather upuffedfupn for the Hrst few weeks, as is the custom with
incoming "sophs," but after watching the haughty seniors "parade around," wc
One of our first moves was to elect oflicers for the year. The election proved
interesting with former Agassiz and Roosevelt students striving to place their
favorites in oihce.
Cn Nov. 12, 1927, we met in the auditorium and gave ourselves up to thc
joys of social intercourse. Good fellowship reigned supreme as miniature "Qlympic
Games" were held. All had a good time except those who remained at home.
Many of the 10 A's have achieved distinction in one branch or another.
Some of the outstanding students are: Herman llalowsky, Nestor Hensler, Harold
We are represented in Athletics by Don Frederickson, Emmett 0'Day, Harold
There are also some promising musicians and actors among us in the persons of
Metta Cleveland, Rhoda Clausen, Erlys Hill, Sally Hunkins.
Although none of us have made any real outstanding achievements as yet,
we feel coniident that when we "get going" we will equal, if not surpass, any
previous graduating class.
You'll hear more of us as Juniors!

After spending the Freshman year in the two junior high schools, Roosevelt
and Agassiz, the ninth grades have combined and formed the midfyear class of '31,
When we had cast off the bonds of Freshmen, we felt free and joyful and proudly
took our seats in assembly. These thrills did not last long, however, for 'we soon
found that we were still the insignificant underfclassmeni This knowledge inspired
the noble desire to obtain the supreme positions of the Juniors and Seniors. We
fully realize that we must work steadily at our studies, for it is very necessary to
have a firm basis for our later training.
Our class has had few activities but plans have been made for a class party
in the near future.

national Tlfonor Society
Through the efforts of Mr. B. C. B. Tighe, our principal, the chapter of the
National Honor Society was organized in 1925. It is one of the more than five
hundred such organizations throughout the United States.
Realizing, as do most educators and psychologists, that scholarship is not the
only factor in success, the faculty elects fifteen per cent of the graduating seniors,
ten per cent of the Senior B's and ive per cent of the Junior A's to membership
on the basis of character, leadership, and service to the school.
Membership in this honorary society has proved to be a strong stimulus for
the development of scholarship and fine citizenship, as students have been made
conscious of the necessity of character and citizenship as a basis for success.

In February of this year, Fargo High School was granted a local chapter of the
National Sportsmanship Brotherhood by Mr. Daniel Chase, executive secretary of
the national organization. Fortyfiive of their number were elected to charter
membership by vote of the high school students after nominations had been made
both by students and faculty. In this club, ideals of true sportsmanship will be
fostered and made traditional. Each year the students of the high school will be
given an opportunity to elect to membership those in high school who have
exemplified a high degree of fair play in all forms of school and community activity.
The sportsman to be honored is one who not only believes in but practices the
square deal in the biggest of all games,-the game of life.
This club is still another organization of Fargo High School privileged to
carry aloft the torch that lights the way for others who also seek recognition as
sportsmen desiring to elevate the spirit of competition and rivalry to a higher

Since the pioneer days as the Hrst literary society of F. H. S., the Kents, fifty old and
new members, have during the school year 1927728 explored still further into the realms ot
the literary field.
Sometimes the way has been rough and the path covered with unexpected difficulties:
nevertheless the Kent adventurers have arrived at the end of the year with colors flying.
Under the leadership of our experienced guides, Miss Williams and Mr. Horlocker, much of
the underbrush was cleared away and new trails were hlazed. Along the route the Kent

Each year the Kents have endeavored to delve deeper into the wilderness and unexplored
fields of knowledge.
The dramatic Held was touched upon when the play "Not So Fast" was given November
19. The social activities were the two parties given each semester for the incoming members.
Along the journey, on March 23, the Kents joined with the equally adventurous band of
friends, the Phosterians, and dehated the subject: "Resolved: that the United States should
have uniform marriage and divorce laws." The arguments of the Kents who upheld the
affirmative must have been convincing because the judges decided in their favor.
The Kents have ever maintained the high ideals of learning lor which the society stands.
As the glorious rays of the sun rest on the end of the trail of 1927328 we may say: 'iWell
done, pioneers of Fargo High School."

"Spirit of Phosterianismv is the aeroplane that has carried the Phosterians into extra'
ordinary realms to unusual achievements this year. Every Phosterian is a "cog" in our
mighty machine. .There is a cooperative force that makes every flight a success, and no
airfpocket or "ta1lfspin" can turn us from our course.
We are utuned up" to every activity our school life offers. We fly high with no little
success in scholastic spheres and school affairs. Our meetings are attended regularly with
enthusiasm and have concerned such topics as "Evolution," "Mencken, Pro and Con,"
"Tofday's Magazines," and "James Matthew Barrie." A reading requirement for each
meeting has made openfforum discussions of real value.
Our parties begin with a hum and end in a whir. The motor runs along smoothly
without a knock, and the new members say they like the "air" of the Phosterians.
"Captain Applejackf' a threefact comedy by Walter Hackett, was the Phosterian choice
for the annual play. It proved a delightful experience, as did the debate and the picnic,
both annual affairs and big events in the lives of the flyers.
Miss Carlblom and Mr. Lipetz. have been the beacon lights of the club through this
eventful year of adventures in uncharted regions.

True followers of the legendary Harlequin and Columbine are members of the Harlequin
Dramatic Society. An Othello here, a Shylock there, and Portias in abundance. For that is
the purpose of the society-to gather actors and actresses as well as productive genius for
the purpose of presenting plays.
The traditional Harlequin initiation and a farce presentation of the classic Pyramus and
Thisby were features of the program at the first semester party for new members. A barn
dance, unique from the square dancing to the basket social luncheon, was the party given
for new members the second semester.
There is efiiciency and fame among the Harlequins. Of them, George Sheldon is an
"allfaround" actor. A Jewish antique dealer in "Be An Optimist," a yell leader in "The
Poor Nut," a detective in "The New Poor," a fun loving baseball boy in "Not Quite Such
A Goose," "Buster" portrayed each character with equal ability.
Lawrence Hall deserves special credit for eiiicient management of "props" and stage
hands. Jeanne Simmons has proved her worth as publicity manager and Lelia Morrow as
In a series of Harlequin plays, Elene Weeks has proved her ability to act the eccentric
old maid, Helen Jensen the flapper, Gladys O'Brien the sophisticated modern maid, Kenneth
Johnson the digniied gentleman, and Jean Pote the very mannish and independent women
Gladys O'Brien, a senior, was president of the society for the school year 1927f28.
Miss M. Louise Schmitt and Richard M. Still were faculty advisers, and Miss Schmitt coached
every play with untiring energy. Other oflicers were: Clair Peterson, vicefpresidentg Marion
Anders, secretaryg Jeanne Simmons, treasurer.

The Radio Club, the youngest of Fargo High Schools many clubs, was organized
the second semester, in 1928, under the direction of Mr. Brown. Any senior high
school student is eligible for membership. There are fifty charter members.
It is the purpose of the Radio Club to further the interest of radio in Fargo
High School. To carry out this plan, programs are held twice a month at which the
members endeavor to learn more about radio. In the near future it is expected that
the members of this club will build a receiving set for the general use of the high
school, besides sets for transmitting and receiving code. V
It is hoped that this organization, through the willingness of its members to
work and cooperate with those outside whose interest we hope to gain, will soon
win its place among the best of Fargo High Schools clubs.

In September 1926, the students of Fargo High School were attracted by a strange
humming and whirring. Upon investigation they discovered that'the sound was caused by
the dirigible S. P. RMI leaving its hangar. She was manned with a crew of twentyfivc
enthusiastic "Romans" determined to make a successful maiden flight into the field of the
Literary Organizations of Fargo High School.
The dirigible left its moorings again in September, 1927, for her second voyage. This
time the whirring was louder and as time passed it grew more audible. In December her
crew gained recognition by launching a new project, the editing of a paper, "The Nunc and
Tune." As a Christmas greeting from the S. P. R., a copy of this edition was presented
to each student in the Latin Department and to the faculty members. The magazine
proved so popular that a request was made for a second edition. In january the giant
airship hesitated in its course just long enough to add sixteen new members to its crew,
This second flight of the dirigible has been a very successful one with Florence Richard'
son and Stanley Thompson as cofpilots, Ethel Ludwig as Keeperfof-the'Log, Edith Peart
as Lieutenant of Finance, and Miss Gretzinger as Sponsor.

The Euthenics Club was organized in September 1927. The Hrst meeting of the club
was a "get acquainted party." The plan of work to be followed was worked out at this
time. Throughout the year the girls made many pretty articles which were used for Christ'
mas gifts and for personal use.
The club held a candy party in the Domestic Science Room. At this party some girls
made their own favorite kind of candy. Others were taught to make a new kind.
The club is to affiliate with the National Association of Home Economics Clubs, be-
cause this is the age of organization and cooperative effort.
The aims of the National Association are: to form a connecting link between the home
and the school: to work for improvement of the home and the community, ,to give a broader
view of the field of Home Economicsg to assist in the development of the Home Economics
The activities of the clubs airiliated with the National Association may be grouped
under four headings namely, educational, cooperative, social or recreational, and financial.
It has not been decided which line of work the Euthentics Club will follow.
The constitution of the National Association will be used but will be changed to meet
the needs of the local club. .

The Spirit of Pep has reached the end of a very successful and eventful
yearls flight. Its motor, Purpose, its fusilage or body, Enthusiasm, and its propeller,
Perseverance, have to a great extent been accountable for the success of this
journey. Then, too, our lubricating oil, More Democratic Spirit, has played no
little part in making our trip a smoothfrunning one.
At various points along the flight, such as in Assembly and at games, we
have performed our stunts. We have faced a very few headfwinds in the lack of
support of the student body. These, however, were never strong.
One of the new ideas worked out durin this 'ourne was the sale of tickets

Gbe Sistocratic Teague
The Sistocratic League, a new club for girls replacing the Girls' Advisory Board, was
organized at the beginning of the school year under the direction of Miss Schropp.
Any Sophomore or Senior girl is eligible for membership to the League.
The name embodies the two principles which form the basis upon which the club was
organized, Sisterhood and Democracy.
At the first meeting officers were elected to "The Big-Little Sister League," the
temporary name for the organization. Joyce Peterson was elected presidentg Metta Cleveland,
vice-presidentg Virginia Yirchott, secretary, and Sally Hunkins, treasurer. At this meeting
each Senior girl was given an opportunity to draw the name of a Sophomore who was to be
her little sister-the purpose being to acquaint the Sophomore with the traditions, rules, and
ideals of Fargo High School, to make her feel more at home, and to try to give her
the right principles upon which to build her high school career. I
A getftogether party has been held once a month after school for the Sistocrats. Games,
dancing, and light refreshments have been enjoyed. The most important result of these
p1arties,1 however, has been the general feeling of good will and friendship established among
t e gir s.
Meetings have been held twice a month. Most of the time has been spent in perfecting
the organization: the Constitution was written and adopted by the members, the colors,
lavendar and green were selected. Such committees as the Dress Improvement and the
Scholarship, through their reports at these meetings, have been helpful in keeping up the
general morals of the girls. The Friendly Committee, which visits the sick has done much
to cheer the girls.
Better Dress Week, March 12 to 16 was sponsored by the League. A committee
judged the general appearance of the girls and they were awarded tags for Approved Dress,
Approved Shoes, Approved Hairfcut, Approved Posture, and Approved Complexion. A
style show was given in a girls' assembly, the correct and incorrect dress for various occasions
were shown and talks were given about each model. This was instructive, in an interesting
way, and did much to help the girls improve their general appearance.
The Sistocratic League has become one of Fargo High's most important organizations
and hasldone much to make the general feeling among the students more friendly and
Much of the success of this fine organization is due to the untiring efforts and the
splendid leadership of its founder, Miss Schropp.
.literary ano musical Commission
L'Fostering mother" seems this commission to all organizations of Fargo High. For it
prevents conflicts in 'the activities of the societies, passes upon general rules of procedure,
and sponsors those school activities which are unable to support themselves. For that
purpose fifty per cent of the profit from every high school play is given over to this com-
mission. Receptions for visiting debate and musical teams are in its charge.
A calendar for the plays, parties, and debates is arranged by the members at the be'
ginning of each semester. Much like a House of Representatives this commission is made
up of the vicefpresidents and advisers of each organization.
S5 be :Axtbletic Commission
The Athletic Commission has followed a course similar to that of the previous years.
This Commission consists of representatives from the junior and Senior Classes and three
faculty advisers. The purpose of the Commission is to vote on the question of awarding
letters to those persons who have been recommended by the coaches. Various problems that
arise in the athletic field are acted upon by the members of the commission. The com'
mission pledges itself to work out financial problems and to prevent a deficit at the end
of the school year.

"The New Poor," a farce in three acts, by Cosmo Hamilton, was chosen by
the Harlequins for their fall play and was presented Dec. 2, 1927 in the High
School Auditorium. The plot is woven around the helplessly rich Welbys and their
new retinue of servants. Mystery shrouds these servants from the first, for they all
claim to be former Russian nobility exiled from their kingdom. The whole family
adores them, the Welby daughters, Alice, Connie, and Betty going so far as to be'
come engaged to three of the band. Amos Welby, a typical business 'lgrindf' falls
in love with Princess Irina, but the crash comes when the servants explain that
they are not Russians, but financially embarrassed students Seeking a novel way to
earn their living,
Kirk C'Farrell, a loud Irish detective, and Mary Maxwell Maudsley, his self'
appointed accomplice furnish abundant humor by their queer speculations in regard
to the real identity of the strange Servants. They even accuse them of stealing Mr.
Welby's old masterpieces. But the real criminal, Gutteridge, is brought to light,
and the play ends with a promise of four happy marriages.

"Captain Applejackf' an Arabian Night's adventure in three acts by Walter Hackett
was presented by the Phosterian Literary society, April 14, 1928, in the high school
auditorium. Ambrose Applejohn, a staid old Englishman, has lived in his ancestral home by
the sea so long that he believes he has become rusty. He is frankly bored With the humdrum
life he leads with his aunt, Agatha Whatcombe, and his vivacious young ward, Poppy Faire,
To seek adventure and perhaps to rescue a beautiful princess are his aims. His wish is
granted rather suddenly, for a ravishing Russian dancer with a French accent bursts into
his home and pleads for refuge from some horrid pursuer seeking some jewels she has in
trust. Not quite selffconhdent Ambrose promises to aid this fair lady with whom he has
fallen in love, at first sight, and engages in a grim interview With her pursuer, Ivan Borolsky.
Ambrose dozes and dreams the most exciting dream in which he is a pirate captain
piloting a mutinous ship.
After he awakens, the most hairrraising events in all Ambrose's life occur. The beautiful
Anna Valeska and her wicked pursuer, together with the Pengards reveal themselves as
commonplace crooks seeking the treasure in Applejohn's home, but Ambrose outwits them
and unexpectedly Ends a real treasure in a secret compartment of his bookcase. He is
much disillusioned in regard to the merits of love at first sight. However, he Hnds that
his true love is Poppy Faire who has lived with him so many years.

"Not Quite Such a Goose" and "A Pair of Lunaticsf' onefact plays, were
presented by the Harlequins in Assembly, January 17.
The first is a humorous sketch of the inevitable attitude of the average boy
toward a charming girl. Albert Bell, a regular "he" boy and an ardent baseball
fan, scorns girls and anything refined, much to the disgust of his sister, Sylvia,
who keeps company with Philip, Albert's idea of a sissy. The table turns, how-
ever, when Hazel comes to visit Sylvia. Succumbing to her charm, poor Albert is
completely' reformed and much to the surprise of his family scorns huckleberry

The Second, "A Pair of Lunatics" is a short comedy with its setting in an
insane asylum. The girl, played by Vivian Campbell, and the boy, played by David
Train, attend this party and after a rather strenuous time with the inmates, they
both retire to an adjoining room for rest. They meet each other there, and are both
startled, since each thinks the other a lunatic. A humorous scene follows when
they attempt to "humor" each other. At last the situation clears and they have a

The valiant never taste of death but once."
So wrote the immortal bard of Avon, and so thinks James Dyke, condemned

penitentiary and the attending priest have tried vainly for four months to discover
Dyke's real identity, but the task is hopeless. He is ready to be executed, but he
will not talk. A young girl comes to find out if he is her brother but goes away
comforted after a heartfbreaking hour. She is scarcely through the door before we
realize that he is her brother, and that it is to spare her and his mother. agony that
he has kept his silence to the end. Then the warden and priest leadhim out to

The Concert Band is one of the leading musical organizations found in Fargo
High School. It furnishes music for various programs, pep rallies, athletic games,
concerts, and other public performances including assemblies.
This band, which has a total membership of twentyfseven, is under the
direction of Mr. L. C. Sorlien. It is the advanced class, for its members must have
proved their ability to play or else they are put into the second band. This second
band serves a useful purpose, that of providing recruits for the advanced class.
The advanced band, called ofhcially the Concert Band, meets during the
second hour. The first semester the band practiced daily on exercises found in the
Educator, which helped build up time, theory and technique in playing. During the
second semester, the band practised less on the Educator and spent more time on
more diihcult selections. Every member in the band must meet the requirement
of home practice if he is to be allowed in the organization.
Grade band classes have been organizedg they do not all meet in the Central
High School, nevertheless, they are concerned indirectly with the Concert Band, for
they will furnish material in the future.

Not as a buttercup gently appeals to the child's sense of beauty, but as a mountain may
attract a philosopher, so for many generations the family of Jasper had responded to the
unbounded stretch of the sea or the infinite realm of the birds.
When Spanish pirates plundered the seas and exploited rich lands, Tarbim jasper
followed the lure of salt sea breezes and adventure, not for love of money, fame or country,
but for sheer joy. And-
"As the breezes wafted him glee,
A loud laugh laughed he."
Came a Corin Jasper, goatfherd and mountain climber, then his son, one Darcy Jasper.
carving colossal figures in the mountain sides.
The Confederate States of America thanked God for the daring men who slipped through
the blockades to the sea to bring them supplies, and king of the blockade-runners was a Jasper.
Perry Jasper junior, staunchly and persistently opposed his father's ambition to make
him an aviator. His aim was to be an architectg he took every opportunity to interest his
father in the St. Louis Institution of Fine Arts. But Perry, senior, was bound heart and
soul to the great business of the air. He loved to escort his son about the St. Louis School
of Aeronautics, explaining the courses of study, praising the equipment and faculty.
W 'iYet it isn't so much the technical training that counts, son," he would say. "It's what
you can get out of it later. There's a higher heaven and a broader earth when you're up
there in the clouds."
Glowing bronzed complexion, perfect physical mechanism, and an alert mind witnessed to
Perry jasper senior's thirty years of active air service. But Perry junior, protested that the
service was stealing his father from him, and Colonel jasper promised that he would resign
on his ifty-fourth birthday. For indeed, better than the freedom he enjoyed with the clouds
and Gulliver, his little monoplane, he loved his son. Loving him, the Colonel kept the hope
that some day his son might turn to the vigor and freedom of the life that was his father's.
Saying farewell to his beloved profession, Colonel jasper took several flights over North
and South America that year. After each of his trips, he described to his son the joys of
flying, told him the ease of thinking up above the rest of the world.
"Son, I'm way up and beyond your architecture when l'm flying, my viewpoint 1S
universal. Church spires and sky-scrapers are symbolicg the world is reaching higher and
higher for truth and grace and happiness. From up there I can see it all. Heaven's within
me always. It's harder to feel that same state of consciousness down here amidst the hurly
burly of mortal minds."
Two days before the fiftyffourth anniversary of his birthday, Colonel Jasper was requested
by the air service to go on a special mission to the Honduras.
"I must go this time," he said simply. "Never again though, son, I promise." V
A cablegram from the Honduras thirtyfsix hours later told of a safe arrival. Two days
more and there came a message from a government office in the Ladrone Islands: "Report
small monoplane Gulliver U. S. returning from Honduras wrecked - three miles out
For the Colonel, flying had been one lovely sojourn in heaven. It was most likely his
land of joy now was no further away than before. And Perry, the son of the Colonel
jasper, went to acquaint himself with the spirit of his father, to End that "higher heaven

When the pilot turns a ilipfilop in the air,
If up there you can keep your thoughts collected
Nor think of dashing downward to the ground
Each time you feel the airplane gently dipping,
And everything is really safe and soundg

There are smiles that make us remember
And smiles that help us forget,
But the saddest smile in the world, to me
Is a smile through eyes that are wet.
A misty smile through the tears of one
Who has found life's road too hard,
But has the courage to yet hold on
Though that life may be sad and marred.
When every thing's gone against you,
And no one can understandg
To still hold on with a cheery smile
And be ready to lend a hand.
To have a soul like that for a friend-
One Who'd smile and help you throughg
Just some one who'd cheer you up a bit
When you get to feeling too blue.
Smiles-the blessings of mankind
And yet they are sad sometimes too,
For a smile can be a sorrow,
When it comes through a mist of blue.

First in Literary Contest
It is easy to see the loveliness of spring: pale green willow trees, deep green grass, and
a cloudyfwhite sky. It is easy to see the loveliness of summer: thick foliage making cool
places in the sun, a chorus of birds under the eaves, and flowers strewn over the hillsides.
It is even easy to see the loveliness of early fall: the sumac all afire, air that is blue and
clear, and the wild geese hastening south.
But there comes a time when the leaves fall, the air chills, and all the green and gold
and scarlet have gone out of the landscape. The hedge is brown, the reeds along the river
are dead, and the trees have dropped their leaves. October passes. November comes, and
with it, the first wet snow. Everyone says, "Late fall and the world looking like a grave'
yard." It takes some one with bright eyes and genuine love of beauty to see the loveliness
of late fall. But it is there. Not the pale loveliness of spring, not the lush loveliness of
summer, nor the flaming loveliness of early fall, but loveliness of a very different sort. It
has a soft gray color, the color of a pigeon. The trees that were once beautiful with leaves
are now beautiful without leaves. The black ,branches make hundreds of different patterns,
some of them simple, some of them intricate, but all of them beautiful. And there is the
little stream like melted silver, so gray and shiny. -
So you see, there's nothing to lament when the summer has passed, and the fall is well
into winter. Beauty is never really dead. It merely changes its dress.
46 be Village mystery
Second in Literary Contest
It was a dark evening during late fall that I entered the sleepy little village of Gray
Valley. I was shown to the village inn, which was known as the "Governor Van Webber."
To my dismay I could not obtain lodging unless I accepted a cot in the parlor, which I did
not want to do, as I had five hundred pounds Sterling on my person, and on my burro.
So, thus deciding, I went about to the neighbors of the town and asked to be given a.
bed in a safe room. My luck was foul, though, as all of the honest countrymen took me
for a bandit or highwayman, as a result of having so great a packet of money with me.
None of them would even attempt to be sociable, whereupon I became despondent. I would
not condescend to rest myself in the open on that night, from fear of being plundered by
villainous bandits who might perchance pass.
A Also I knew from my contact with nature that the cloud formations, which were
coming up, were unfailing symptoms of stormy weather, and a large company of wind.
I was told by an old peddler that I could lodge at an old house at the head of the
village, somewhat by itself and dilapidated to a sad degree, but which would make me a dry
bed for the night. I started off at a quick pace, as a brisk breeze was already astir, which
sent shopkeepers in and warned them to close both doors and windows. Birds flew here
and there finding safe keeping for protection against the oncoming storm. Lamps were soon
lighted, and the tallfbridge keeper soon left his post and retired to his hovel to pray.
Knocking at the door I routed the man, who came to the door in a condition resembling

ague. He directed me, in' his nervous way, on tne last lap of my short journey, and
handing him a piece of money for telling me the way, I proceeded. I'
Then I walked a jog faster, for I could feel drops on the shoulders of my cape and on
my hat. The burro trudged along behind me, as faithful a beast as ever lived.
Now we left the row of little houses, and came upon a curved road, very bumpy and
hard walking. Within a very few minutes we came upon the house, squatting back from
the road and somewhat in an oblique angle to it. 4The whole scene was one of misery
and dilapidation, and somewhat disheartening. This was no time to split hairs, so amid
large splatterings of rain I shook the door open, and there being no barn, brought the
burro in after me, and made him comfortable in the wood shed at the rear.
Soon I lay down to sleep, and for at least a half hour listened to the storm in all
its fury out of doors, and blessed God that I was sheltered from it. Soon I wandered off to
sleep, and must have slept soundly for an hour when I was awakened with a start. All
was quiet. There was a slight wind blowing, but the rain had stopped. I knew that
something supernatural had awakened me. Soon I decided that was due to a nervous
condition produced by the dismal atmosphere of the house. Iust as I was about to drop
off to slumber I heard the faintest heralding of witchery, a low, melancholy groan, of the
most disheartening kind. I was wide awake in an instant. I listened for another, and
there came to my ears a second dismal, harrowing groan. Then followed a sickly shriek or
scream directly above my head. I shuddered. Certainly I must have come upon a hall of
spirits. They were all about me. Now I could hear a groan upstairs. Had somebody
slipped upstairs to die when I was asleep? What was the shrieking noise? Then came a
most miserable scream and a loud prolonged groaning. My burro bolted past me like a
flash, determined that he would be safer elsewhere. Trembling I rose to my feet and clung
to the wall for the purpose of steadying myself. The groaning had ceased. Suddenly there
was a thud on the old floor, upstairs. Had the poor wretch died? Was I to go up and
risk my life in order to help him? A low groan, which gave me courage, came down the old
chimney. I picked up a large stick and made my way to the feeble stairs. One stepg
and my heart was beating rapidly. Two stepsg and I was so nervous a cat could have killed
me. Three stepsg I could not control myself. Fourth stepg fifthg sixth. Now I had- one
more step before I could see the floor. Then there was a crash and the lower timbers of
the stairs gave out and down I came in a heap of debris, with my leg broken. There I
lay, in pain and unconsciousness till morning when I was found and taken to a doctor, who
set my leg.
I went back to this old house later, and found it had been burned to the ground,
with only the stone chimney standing, through which had come the shrieks and groaning.
What had been in the room upstairs? I could not Gnd out. It would forever mystify me.
What was it that had startled me?

Second in Literary Cofntesrt
I was created in San Diego, California, on February 28, 1927, through the order of a
Mr. Charles A. Lindbergh. In case you are not acquainted with the young gentleman, I
will tell you a little about him.
He was born on February 4, 1902, in Detroit, Michigan. He received a. good education,
entering the Force School at Washington, .D. C., in 1910. In 1918, he was graduated from
the high school at Little Falls, Minnesota.
This young man sent in an order for me, which was immediately filled. By May 10,
the same year, I was ready for use, and my owner came to the factory to claim me as his
own. He gave me a name of which I have always been very proud. It was f'The Spirit
of St. Louis." '
My name, as well as my master's, will appear in every history book published from this
time on for a very important reason.
On May 20, 1927, "We" fLindy and IJ took off from the Roosevelt Field, New York,
at 7:52 a. m. We were bound for Paris, competing in the transoceanic flight contest!
What a thrill for me. My engine never worked better, my propeller never went around so
fast, as then. Within one day we sighted our destination. The bright lights of that
famous city made every inch of my beautiful frame quiver with excitement! Lindy too, was
illed with joy.
At 10:24 p. m. on May 21, "We" landed on the LeBourget Field, France. A large
crowd awaited us,-and what honor and glory was bestowed upon my comrade and me!
They put me in a hangar for the night, guarded by several men. Lindy was taken to a
grand hotel as a guest of honor, and he, too, was treated in grand style.
After spending a week there in "gay Paree," we went to Brussels, Belgium, and from
there to England.
We were received by King George and Queen Mary, and treated very royally, indeed.
I was petted and tampered with, and the other planes who always went before me to
announce our coming, were all very jealous of me.
Though "We" were having a wonderful time in Europe among kings and queens, we
longed to go home to America. So we left June 10, and arrived in Washington amid the
wildest of wild welcome.
The following day my master was made colonel by President Coolidge. "We" were
later presented with the Distinguished Flyingfcross-the ceremony being held at the foot
of the Washington monument before thousands of spectators.
Soon after our arrival in Washington, we went to New York to be welcomed, though,
secretely, I might add, the main reason was to get that twentyffive thousand dollar Raymond
Arteig prize for our famed flight.
In this brief sketch of my life I have not described myself. I am a iirst class plane,
exceptionally small, and made by one of the most flourishing plane factories in the United
States. I look as if I were made of cheap tin, but that is not so. My frame is strong
and hardy, and according to the officials in Washington and Paris, it is also very attractive.
On my left side, near the engine, is printed my name, "The Spirit of St. Louis," in big
black letters. The most important part of this structure of mine is the engine of Ryan make.
From the above description, I believe anyone can see that I'm not a bad looking machine.
Cne thing I am very glad of, is the fact that I'm living in this day and age. The
reason? I foretell, that within twenty years, the blue heavens will be marred by the many
planes in the air, and trafic signs and "cops" will be necessities on the sky-scrapers
of that day.

'Gbe 1927 'football Season
At the beginning of the 1927 football season the prospects for a winning team
were the best in years. There seemed to be a wealth of able candidates for both
line and backfield positions. Consequently the loss of Carl Miller and Ed. Diestler,
the leading end candidates before the first game, did not cause Coach Lowe much
worry. However, when both Landbloom and Willie Folendorf who had been play'
ing ends sustained injuries which were destined to keep them on the side lines for
practically the remainder of the season, and Morrie Long, regular quarter, and Bob
Allison, regular half, were injured, it began to look as if the purple and white
would feel the sting of defeat before the season was over.
Breckenridge had been defeated 72 to O, Crookston 39 to 7, Hankinson 37 to O,
Bismarck 19 to O, and Valley City 13 to 0.
The next game was with Moorhead. Fargo received the initial kick off and
began a drive for Moorhead's goal which might have been successful but for an
intercepted pass. Another drive in the second quarter, in which Allison's 30 yard
run featured, brought the ball to Moorhead's 5 yard line where the plucky "Spuds"
held for downs and punted out of danger. The real tragedy of the game came
in the third quarter when the Midgets opened up with passes on their own 30
yard line. One of these heaves was intercepted and converted into a touchdown
which proved to be enough to win the game.

Grand Forks came next with a well drilled, clever, little team and gave us a
real scare by scoring a touchdown early in the game. Before the half was over,
however, the tables had been turned and Fargo was leading 7 to 6. In the second
half the Midgets with the drive which had been so lacking against Moorhead, put
over another touchdown, the final score being 13 to 6.
This victory gave Fargo the championship of the eastern half of the state. An
effort to arrange a game for the State Championship was made, but since Williston,
Minot, and Mandan were all undefeated and would not play off their ties, the un'
oiiicial championship was not decided.
The last game of the season was played at Sioux Falls on November 11th
and because of many penalties and unfavorable weather conditions, it resulted in a
3 to O defeat for our boys.
, The season, as a whole, was entirely satisfactory, and but for two unfortunate
defeats, would have been the best ever recorded by a F. H. S. team. Bob Lowe,
our worthy coach, proved that he was an inspiration to our boys, and under him,
our eleven gained immense football knowledge that will carry them far in college

Walter Folendorf, the other twin,
played most successfully at tackle. He

WALLA, Right guard
Walla never was willing to give ing

STEPHENS, Left guard
Stephens surely could break up the

FOLENDORF, Left end
Willie Folendorf, one of the best

Airheart played with a neveresayedie

1927-28 Basketball Season
In winning sixteen out of the twenty games played the Fargo High School basketball team
completed a successful season. Some of the most formidable quints in the Northwest were
defeated by the Purple and White clad Midgets under Coach Charles Kimball's direction.
'Ihree veterans and many promising boys from last year's squad answered the call, and so the
prospects were better than usual.
In winning from Moorhead, CrosbyfIronton, St. Cloud, and Willmar Fargo vanquished
the cream of Minnesota's teams. They also won impressive victories over Valley City,
Rolla, Devils Lake. Williston. Wahpeton, and Lisbon. Conquering Hope 3747, Lisbon
2946, Wahpeton 3248, and Devils Lake 4Of20. Fargo showed unusual possibilities in
these first games of the 1927f28 season.
In the first of the two game series with Moorhead Fargo was outscored 12 to 9. This
game was played in Moorhead before the largest crowd ever assembled on their court, and
the rival sections kept up a terrific din throughout the entire forty minutes.
The next weekfend Kimball took seven Midgets to Duluth where they were to meet
the strong Duluth Ceneral outnt. Everheart and Long joined the team for the first time.
strengthening it considerably. The two teams put up one of the classiest exhibitions
witnessed in Duluth, but in the final moments Duluth made two baskets and kept the lead,
winning 2349. The next evening our boys met CrosbyfIronton, winners of their district
the year before. In a well played game the Purple and White outfought the miningftown
team and won 2345. In this game Morrie Long again injured his knee and was out until
Our captain, Joe Olson, made his first debut in the Casselton game and in a rough contest
Fargo won 2846.
Valley City, coached by Claudie Miller, a former high school star under Kimball, was
defeated 2544 in a slow contest. Fargo was superior in every branch of the game, but yet
this team proved to be the black sheep in the State tournament at Mandan.

The Midgets gave the State Champs, Grand Forks, their hardest battle of the season on
the Fargo court. In the early moments of the game Grand Forks took a 9 to 3 lead which
they held until Fargo tied the score up with 18, all with two, minutes left to go. Grand Forks
managed to sink three baskets in this short time holding the Midgets scoreless, winning 2448.
The second trip into Minnesota taken by the Midgets took them to St. Cloud, where
they met and defeated the strong high school team there. After Fargo's early lead, Tech
rallied but the first half ended 15514 for Fargo. The next period, however, found the
Midgets a few points ahead, and the game was finally tucked away by Gregory's three
baskets. The final score was 2546. It is interesting to note that St. Cloud has never
defeated Fargo in their basketball rivalry in the last ive years.
Willmar High, boasting a record of fourteen consecutive victories, offered the Midgets
a torrid battle. Here they presented the best passing game of the season, their splendid
attack carrying them to a 27f20 victory. This broke Willmar's winning streak and added
further laurels to Fargo's record.
The next week the Midgets entertained the strongest team in Minnesota, Moorhead,
and in a thrilling overtime battle, Kimball's prodigies won 16 to 12. The game was witnessed
by nearly 1300 people, the largest crowd which has ever seen a high school game in Fargo.
The Midgets held the lead throughout the greater part of the game, being tied only at the
end of the regular playing time. The first quarter was 4fO for Fargo, the first half 8f6.
During the third quarter Moorhead held Fargo to one field goal and kept them without
any baskets the last period. Moorhead played a slow, cautious game, waiting for the open'
ings in which they could drive in. The score was 1Qf1O at the end of the game, but Joe
Olson was fouled as the gun went off, having two free throws to win the game. However,
luck was against Olson, and he missed both of them. In the overtime period Fargo opened
up by scoring a basket immediately. Another and two free throws brought the score to 16,
before -Moorhead counted a long shot just before the end of the alfray. An attempt was
made to arrange a third game but the efforts failed.
Sheldon was defeated in the first game of the subfdistrict tournament held at the A. C.
by a score of 46f1O. Sheldon offered little opposition to the strong Midget team.
Page had defeated Casselton. They were the next victims of the polished Fargo five.
An easy game which ended 49f1O for Fargo gave the Midgets the right to clash with Hope
in the finals of the tournament.
Because of the small population of Hope, they weren't considered very formidable
opponents, but in the game they proved dangerous until the final quarter, the score
being 42f22. '
The district found Fargo playing Wahpeton, which had defeated everyone in its sub'
district. An uninteresting game was offered-a poor class of ball being displayed by both
teams. The first half ended 12f11 for Fargo. In the final half the Midgets found them'
selves momentarily and sunk several baskets, holding Wahpeton for 3 points. By winning
this game Fargo was again awarded the right to represent the Hrst district at the State
basketball tournament at Mandan.
At the State tournament Fargo defeated Rolla, winners of the sixth district, after a
hard fight in the first half. In the semifinals Valley City upset the dope and won from the
Midgets in the last minutes by caging a long shot in the final 50 seconds of the game.
In the consolation game with Williston Fargo scored at will and would have, no doubt,
given Grand Forks, North Dakota's champs, a torrid fight for first honors had it not been
for the untimely upset given them by the HifLiners.
Lloyd Gregory was awarded a position on the Hrst AllfState team, and two of his team
mates, joe and Clair, were favored with second AllfState berths. Had it not been for
illness, "Wally" Everhart probably would have had an AllfState position.
Prospects for a winning season next year are splendid, Fargo having Morrie Long, Paul
Airheart, and Iunie Wilson, letterfmen from this year, along with several excellent second
team members- Weir, Fisher, Weible, Miller, lessen, Kvenmoen, and Culp.

Basketball and Track Coach flst team,
This tall, handsome boy was our
captain this year. In all the games he
played he performed brilliantly. He
started on the offense always making two
baskets a game. His defense work was
a shade below his offensive, yet he up'
held his position very well. Ioe was slow
to start, but when he got "hot" the
other team was put to grief. In his two
years of High School competition Olson
was awarded allfstate berths twice. He
leaves us this year.
"Greg" was the main cog in the Mid'
get offensive. As Kimball says, 'Greg'
was the most consistent player on the
team and always came through." In
every game he played "hea.ds'up" basket'
ball and was awarded another allfstate
position this year.
In Miller we had one of the largest
men in the state, consequently we were
usually certain of getting the jump. Dur'
ing the early part of the season, Carl was
just an ordinary basketball player, but
under Kimball's directions he improved
rapidly and couddn't be left out'of the
lineup. He took the ball off the bank
board as well as any back guard should.
"Wally" was the best ball handler
and pivoter on the floor. His basket
shooting was remarkable and many times
he dropped the little sphere in from un'
canny angles. This was "Wally's" first
year and his last as he is graduating.

so when the district tournament came

The basketball season was a very successful one for the Reserves, the team
under the able coaching of "Dutch" Schroeder, developed into a formidable team
which lost only one game on its schedule. This game was lost to Hope who
gave our Hrst team a real iight.
Since the material for this squad was excellent, there was close competition for
each position. Cooperation and iight carried them through many hard fought battles.
Weir and Weible did the most commendable work for the "Supers" although
Culp's floorwork was exceedingly fine. Fisher, Jessen, and Miller did' some
splendid work also and proved themselves worthy of the uniform.
The Reserves played and defeated such teams as the Moorhead and Grand

season to a successful close.

One of the most powerful influences upon the activities of the students
of our high school is intramural sports. From a comparatively small beginning,
intramural sports have developed into a well organized system of physical training
and culture. l
In the fall the Hrst iield of activity to stir the wouldfbe Joestings was interclass
football. The boys, loyal to their respective classes, turned out. in force, and
although equipment was lacking to some, spirit was lacking in none. Every game
of this year's interclass tournament was Hercely contested, and after the smoke of the
final battle had cleared away, the juniors and Seniors were found to be in a dead'
lock for honors.
The next sport to attract the attention of the aspiring athletes was interclass
basketball. As usual, enthusiasm reached its peak at the opening of the interclass
basketball tournament from which Mr. Kimball selects his charges for the coming
season. There was a mad scramble for the championship, but the highfpowered
Senior B machine outfdistanced the rest of the field to win the 1928 title.
At the close of the interclass basketball tourney, hockey lured all pucksters to
the Island Park rink, where the annual intramural league games are contested.
Among the cracking of sticks and shins, Bill Fuller's fighting aggregation topped
the list to win their numerals.
Intramural basketball heavers were sectioned in divisions or leagues, A and B.
The winners of the two divisions were then to play a series of two out of three
games for iinal supremacy. The Mellonites representing division A and the
Friedmanites, winners of league B, played in the championship series. The league
B team by winning the third game of the series 15 '12, won the title and numerals.
The Seniors again demonstrated their supremacy by winning the interclass
track meet with 85 points. The Sophomores with a total of 16 nosed out the
Juniors by one point. Although no new records were established a dearth of
material was unearthed and prospects for a successful track season greeted Coach
Kimball and Captain Gregory.
Everhart, Schalk, Culp, and Bond were chosen as captains to drill and baseball
nines through an intramural baseball campaign.

While the "Spirit of Camphorn was hovering over Paris looking for the land
ingfeld, Clayton Reeves suddenly burst into this song:
"Ten little Seniors all dressed up so fine,
'Frankie' lost her compact, then there were
Nine little Seniors didn't like to wait,
'Abbie' didn't come, then there were eight.
Eight little Seniors on their way to heaven,
'Dot' was admitted, then there were seven.
Seven little Seniors returned to play tricks,
'Renzie' got caught, then there were six.
Six little Seniors learned how to dive,
'Bobby' hit bottom, then there were Eve.
Five little Seniors started to roar,
'Squeak' lost her voice, then there were four.
Four little Seniors started to climb a tree,
'Margie' weighed live hundred, then there were
Three little Seniors feeling rather blue,
Helen thought of 'Ham,' then there were two.
Two little Seniors always on the run,
'Knut" got her dates mixed, then there was one.
One little Senior, blind, deaf, and dumb
'Larry' cried 'horsefeathersf then there was none."
"Oh, you're not the only pebble on
the beach. How do you like these?"
and Happy Wyard began to chant:

"What's the charge?" Judge Ridal
"But, your honor," the youth protested.
"Silence!" Judge Ridal cried. W
"You've committed the crime.
You must pay the fineg
Or in jail thirty days you'll abide."
"You have driven your horseless carriage
Through the street of Punkinwilty,
Nor your speed did abate.
Twenty 'per' was the rateg
And the court has found you guilty."
"Speeding," the aerial cop replied.
"Going Hvefifty 'per'
On a main air route, sir,
When I stopped his aeroplane ride."
"'Tis a minor oifensef' thoughtfully
answered the judge.
"This time you shall go free.
Not pay any ine.
Nor serve any timeg
But in the future drive carefully."
fl f--TA new Version
If you can keep your feet when all around you
Are rushing for a choice Assembly seatg
If you can smile and pay a dime admission
When others pay a cent for that same treatg
If you can miss a book from your own locker
And still control your temper and your feetg
If you can chuckle when you're caught a frunning
Through halls, and never heave a sigh,
But calmly sit upon the bench for mourners
With judgment quickly drawing nighg
If you can be a sport when Fate's against you
And then, if beat, you make no alibi-
Then you are certainly the model student,
And what is more, a pride of Fargo High.

The Cynosure Annual staif wishes to take this opporf
tunity to acknowledge its indebtedness to all those who have
helped make this annual possible. Without the cooperation
of the printing department during the advertising campaign,
the unswerving loyalty to the typewriter which Agnes Mitchell
displayed, the timely aid of other members of the typewriting
class, the artistic designs on the division pages and borders
made' by Harold Johnson, those clever cartoons in the feature
section which Margaret Fleming and Ruth Barrett drew, the
interest and help of the faculty advisers, the consideration and
kind suggestions given by the Dacotah Photo Engraving and
the Knight Printing Company, and last, but not least, the
financial support given by the business men of Fargo whose
names appear on our Honor Roll, the Cynosure Annual
could not have appeared so promptly and in the present form.
