If you have not already read Charles A. Beard's Basic History of the United States, do not Hiil to make
it a "must" on your reading list. You will get a refreshing picture of our country, its earlier days, its trials,
and its victories. You will get a refreshing picture, too, ofthe ideals and aspirations of those men and women
who did the spade work in our national life.
Before you have read hfty pages, you will come upon a page that is both true and startlinggif it affects
you as it did me. Beard says that it was not necessarily European wars, or enforced service in European
armies, or tyrannical rulers, or religious persecution that influenced our forebears to leave Europe and come
to America. If these had been the sole reasons, people would have
come by thousands instead of by hundreds. As it was, for every
man or woman who came to America, hundreds remained in the
old country and lived the rest of their lives under those humilif
Those who crossed the water and braved the terrors of a
strange land had something else. That something was a quality
of energy, enterprise, daring, and aspiration that made them diff
ferent from their neighbors who remained in the turmoil and
poverty of the Old World. I should stop this message at this
point, for the lesson is plain. It has not been external circumf
stances that have made America great. Our greatness has come 'M
because men dared to live dangerously and because they dared to
reach beyond their immediate grasp. Let us strive to keep it
that way. L'Hitch your wagon to a star", said Benjamin Franklin.
We have a great heritageg we have great traditions to maintain.
I know that my confidence in Young America will be justified.

WORLD UNITY ,
Today the world is strangely disunited. Europe is a seething mass of discordant humanity, and Asia
is torn asunder by many political, race, and religious conflicts. In fact, throughout the world generally,
dissension and disorder reign over peace and harmony, as a global disaster again looms ominously just beyond
the horizon of tomorrow.
The world is old, very old. The human race, too, is old but relatively young in the development of
social progress and of the refinements in human relations. Centrifugal social forces still based on envy,
greed, ambition, prejudice, hatred, and ignorance are too pronounced to permit the centripetal forces of unity
to operate in this contemporary repelling environment. If peace and world concord are ever to become a
reality, they will come through some form of transcendentalism based on a philosophy of humanitarianism,
having its inspiration in religious concepts which embrace a spirit
of comprehensive world fellowship.
We live daily in two realms. One is materialistic, the other
a realm of ideation. The one is a world of matter, the other is a
world of emotions and ideas. Life in the former is marked by
travail and unrest as the competing units of society strive for a
sufficiency of subsistence wants. Life in the latter is character'
ized by the ascendancy of thought over matter and the search for
truth asa basis of human accord and unity.
In these two worlds the province of education is twofold:
Hrst, to increase the productive efiiciency of each succeeding
generation, and second, to develop a cultural atmosphere in which
men may receive the inspiration and attain the wisdom necessary
to unite humanity through bonds of cooperation, understanding,
and good will. In this transcendent and rarified atmosphere
hovering over the scenes of our mundane existence as we daily
grope and toil lies the hope that in his quest for peace, harmony,
and unity, man may yet triumph over the elements of strife, disf
cord, and disunion. The fate of civilization hangs upon the realif
zation of this hope.

No one faculty member in Fargo High can boast of having taught every student that graduates from this
school. The deans, however, hold the distinction of coming in direct contact with more students than any
one else in Fargo High, Miss Carney and Mr. Bricker, because of their positions, are two of the bestfknown
members of the faculty. No student leaves this school without having at one time or another entered the
door marked "Deans' Office".
Besides maintaining the decorum of the student body, the deans are members of the counseling staff.
This staff advises the students in the subjects and courses to be taken in high school and assists them in making
a vocational choice which will help them to determine their college course. Helping the students with inf
dividual problems takes much of the deans' time.
Sophomore and senior girls spend an hour a week in Miss Carney's social education classes. From these
classes they acquire poise, good manners, and conhdence. All the girls who enter the doors of F. H. S. have
heard of the Sistocratic League. An organization open to all girls, it tries to create a friendlier feeling among
the students. Miss Carney is the adviser of this group.
Miss Carney received her B. S. degree from the University of North Dakota and her M. A. degree from
Columbia University. H
Mr. Bricker is the sophomore boys' best friend. He not only is counselor for all sophomore boys but
also teaches their guidance classes. He helps the boys become acquainted with Fargo High and interests
them in the clubs, sports, and other activities offered by the school.
He is an important member of the Athletic Commission. In this organization he helps to determine
who shall receive letters.
In the absence of Mr. Tighe, he directs assemblies and acts as assistant principal.
Mr. Bricker received his B. S. degree from James Millikan University.

The main project of the Student Council this year was to plan a driving instruction course. Under
this program all seniors were given an opportunity to learn to drive or to improve their driving. The prof
gram included lectures and movies arranged and scheduled by the Student Council and firsthand instruction
in the new dualfcontrol car provided by Wallwork's. The program was concluded for the year with the
state tests in April.
Another project of the council was the football banquet, given at the end of the football season, to
honor players, coaches, and managers. lt was at this banquet that the cofcaptains for next year's team were
announced and that letters were given to the seniors who had earned them.
In March they held a panel discussion on school life at the PTA meeting for the furtherance of better
understanding between the students and their parents and teachers. All phases of student activity were
discussed, including home work, allowance, and extra activities.
To divine the future of the FHS basketball team, a group of council members became gypsy fortune'
tellers and provided a lively pep assembly.
The Student Council advanced democracy in school government another step this year by joining the
National Association of Student Councils.

NATIO AL HO OR SOCIETY
The more observing students of Fargo High have noticed a small gold pin on a few of their fellow
classmates, the inquisitive among us have asked, "Whzit's that pin and for what does it stand?" The wearers
of these emblems have answered, "That's my National Honor pin". That's usually as fir as it goes. The
wearer of this pin never points out the letters C S L S on the pin, or the flaming torch which is the embodif
ment of all that the society means.
The C stands for Character, showing that the privilege of wearing this pin is bestowed on only those
that have wellfrounded personalities, the S is a symbol of Scholarship, signifying the intellectual ability of
the person, the L is for Leadership, and the other S is for Service.
That flaming torch signifies the desire of the bearer of the pin to carry forward the searching light of
truthg to lead, that others may follow, to keep our school spirit and ambition high, and to serve. This pin
tells his fellow students that the carrier belongs to a National organization and has been judged by a Riculty
committee on Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character, that the student belongs to the upper third
of his class scholastically and has exhibited these other requisites for membership.
Approximately 15 per cent of the senior class and 5 per cent of the junior class can be selected.
So the next time you see that gold torch on the National Honor pin, remember that the owner of it is
a person of high quality who is not only to be looked up to and followed, but is also one from whom to
seek assistance when in need.
Miss Tibert and Mrs. Crothers are the advisers of this society.

The Sportsmanship Club, which was organized in February, 1928, revolves around the betterment of
sports and general student activities. This club consists entirely of members who not only believe but also
practice the square deal in the biggest of all gamesgthe game of life.
Students from the junior and senior classes are elected by popular vote of the entire junior and senior
classes. Not more than five per cent of the total number of high school students may become members of
Elected as members of the Sportsmanship Club, the students must exemplify the high ideals of school
life. Their code expresses these ideals: i'Keep the rules, keep faith with your comrades, keep your temperg
keep yourself fitg keep a stout heart in defeat, keep your pride under a victory, keep a sound soul, a clean
mind, and a healthy body, play the game."
The purpose of the Sportsmanship Club is to recognize those students who are outstanding in their
attitude of fair play in all situations. In this club true ideals of sportsmanship are upheld.
Fargo High's Sportsmanship Club is a member of the National Sportsmanship Brotherhood. Mr..
Bernhoft is the adviser.

Debate, the sport of matching wits and words, has helped prepare many of our men and women for
success on the many walks of life.
Debate, like any other sport, demands thorough preparation. Exhaustive research is a necessary part
of debate preparation. After the debate candidate has established a full knowledge of the subject, the stu'
dent must learn how to debate through continuous practice. When the team is prepared on both sides of
the question,debates are scheduled with other schools and the season is well under Way.
The members debated with teams from St. James Academy of Grand Forks, Moorhead High School,
M.S.T.C. High School, and Valley City here. They also attended debates at Moorhead High School,
Concordia TrifState, and Jamestown College.
This club is under the leadership of Mr. Krueger and Mr. Rognlie.

Under the leadership of their new adviser, Mr. Lee, the Thespian Club members have spent a profit'
able and enjoyable year.
Because the Thespian Club is in reality a junior Harlequin club, much of the time is spent in preparing
the members for Harlequin.
The purposes of this drama organization are to furnish an opportunity for dramatic expression in high
school students, to encourage interest in worthy plays, and to gain some knowledge of the theatre of the
past and of the present.
During the first semester simple readings were the main topic of interest. The second semester found
the members focusing their attention on short plays. For this project the club was divided into several
groups which took turns presenting short plays. In this manner everyone had a chance to participate in
the presentation of at least one play.
Q A Christmas party was held at the December meeting, at which time a Christmas play was presented
and refreshments were served.
This club welcomes as members only those students who are seriously interested in developing dramatic
talent, in studying the production of plays, and in learning about the theater. The club membership is
limited to forty students.

That's where the Photography Club holds its meetings.
The purpose of this club is to develop an interest in all phases of photography. Besides learning how
to take portraits and scenery pictures, these camera fans are also taught how to develop negatives and print
their own pictures.
If the meeting is held indoors, the members often give talks or demonstrations on various subjects of
interest to photographers. However, many of the meetings are in the form of field trips. On these excursions
the members snap pictures of anything and everything which catches their eye. After developing these
photos, their proud owners may enter them in a special Black and White Photo contest, sponsored by the
club. The best entries will then be sent to the National Photography contest.
Cameras aren't the only necessary items at the Photography Club meetings, refreshments are also a
This club, under the guidance of Mr. Olson, is open to anyone who wishes to make photography his
profession or who enjoys snapping pictures for fun.

The Science Club, under the direction of Mr. Voth, consists of students who are interested in a better
understanding and appreciation of the importance of science in modern life.
This year the club was divided into several different committees. Each group chose a project which
was its work for the year. In this manner several different investigations were carried on at the same time,
and each member received additional information from his fellow students on research other than his own.
The club also boasts the maintenance of the wildflife displays which have been seen in the halls of
Fargo High School. These displays, which provide an excellent way to interest others in 'the wonders of
nature, are changed every two weeks, if possible.
The purpose of the Science Club is to create in its members an active and intelligent interest in natural
phenomena, thereby leading them to scientihc investigation.
Besides hard work this nationallyfaffiliated organization holds a Christmas party and a spring picnic each
year. At the Christmas party Science Club usually plays host to another school club. At the spring picnic
it joins with several other clubs for fun and refreshments.

Rated at the close of the season as being one of the state's most improved squads, the Midget gridmen
had a 1947 season's record of two wins, one tie, and Hve losses. Coach Harry Bridgeford and Assistant
Coaches Art Dronen and Joe Teie built the team around four returning lettermen: cofcaptains, Gordy
Badger and Bob Perselling Mel Weikumg and Ted Bayer.
The season opened on September I2 with our opponent being Sacred Heart Academy. With Dave
Pease scoring in the first quarter, the Deacons held Fargo until the fourth quarter, when Tom Mickelson
grabbed a touchdown pass to tie. the score 6-6. Pease then squirmed zo yards for the Deacon's second touch'
down and the winning margin. A belated Midget drive fell I2 yards short of scoring territory as the final
At Fergus Falls on September 19, the Fargo squad received its second defeat at the hands of a scrappy
Otter team. Led by Bill Foss and Bob Hotchkiss, who each scored a touchdown, the Otters blanked the
Midgets I3 to o. Keith Johnson scored the extra point.
September 26, at Moorhead, with the first quarter scarcely under way, Fargo scored a touchdown on
a pass from Maynard Toussaint to Tom Mickelson, and Moorhead retaliated the same quarter on a Glen
Souers to Ken Brewster pass play. Souers then kicked the extra point to make the score 7 to 6 in Moorhead's
favor. The next three quarters were scoreless for both teams, as neither squad was able to capitalize on
the other's mistakes.
Fargo's first win came at the expense of Valley City on their own field on October 3. In the second
quarter, Valley City loosed a passing attack which paved the way for Taylor to score their lone tally. Fargo
scored in the second quarter on a pass from Gordy Badger to Jack Lees to knot the score at 6H6. In the
fourth quarter Mel Weikum plunged over from the twofyard line to set Fargo ahead I2 to 6 and give the
Midgets their first victory.
Grand Forks gave Fargo its worst defeat of the year on October ro. With fullback Lloyd Hallada
scoring in the first and third quarters, and kicking both extra pointsg Bob Wood scoring on a passfintercepf
tiong and Jerry Schue racing into paydirt in the fourth quarter, the game ended with the score 26 to o in
favor of the Redskins. Fargo's line outplayed Grand Forks but was unable to stop the powerful backfield.
Playing Moorhead on our field on October 17, the Midgets gained revenge as they won zo to 6. Neither
team scored in the first quarter. In the second quarter Fargo scored twice on passes to end Roger Fercho,
with Jack Lees kicking the extra point. The Spuds scored their only counter this period on a running play
by Glen Souers to make the halftime score I3 to 6. The second half was closer with the only scoring being
Mel Weikum's touchdown in the fourth quarter and Bill Jackson's point after the touchdown. The final
score was Fargo zo, Moorhead 6.
Rallying in the fourth quarter, the mighty Midgets turned back a certain defeat and ended in a 1313
tie at the Fargo stadium in a battle with Wahpeton on October 21. Wahpeton scored its two touchdowns
in the second quarter on passes by Flaa and Jim Lauder to halfback Bob Voves. Fullback Gary Carr passed
to Jack Simonitch for the extra point. With neither team able to score in the third quarter, the game seemed
won for the Wops until Rodney Fercho, substitute Midget center, intercepted a pass to set the way for
Fargo's first touchdown, a pass from Maynard Toussaint to Roger Fercho. Jack Lees kicked the extra point.
A few minutes later Jack Lees raced across to tie the score at I5-13. Lee's drop kick was disputed by the
officials, who finally ruled it a little wide of the mark.
The Hnal game of the season was held on October 51, with the Midgets playing host to the Jamestown
BluefJays. Fargo was held scoreless throughout the contest, while Jamestown drove 80 yards to set up a
touchdown by fullback Win Hazielton in the sceond quarter. With but 30 seconds remaining in the game,
halfback Jack Burke raced 35 yards to score for the BluefJays. Hazelton's kick was good and the game ended
with Jamestown leading I3 to o.
Twentyftwo players received their letters at the football banquet, and Maynard Toussaint and Mel
Weikum were elected cofcaptains for the 1949 season. Bill Jackson, zzofpound Midget tackle, was named

CYNOSURE OF THE AIR
The Cynosure of the Air, Fargo High School's newest literary venture, was officially launched by its
first broadcast on March 19, 1948. It was the Hrst occasion in the history of Fargo High School in which
the school had taken part in a regular radio program.
The purpose of these broadcasts is twofold. First, it is the belief of the staff that is it to the advantage
of the community to be informed as to the interests and activities of the student body. Secondly, such a
program will afford an opportunity for the students of the high school to become better acquainted with
the operations of radio and use their journalistic abilities on the air.
The staff of seven high school students broadcasts every Friday at 545 over station KFGO. Pre'
ceding the broadcasts ,the staff schedules one rehearsal under the direction of its adviser, Mr. Rognlie, and
one rehearsal under KFGO supervision. The recording unit of the Speech department is used extensively
by the staff to detect errors and correct faults in speaking.
The staff is entirely separate from the BifWeekly and Annual staffs. There is no overlapping of either
personnel or coverage. Selection of the staff members is made on the basis of faculty recommendations,
scholarship, general ability, and results of voicefrecording tests.
Administrative advisement of the new staff will be for the present under a special Eiculty committee.
Eventually it may be placed under the jurisdiction of a board similar to the board of publications.

BI-WEEKLY LITERARY STAFF
Did you know that the BifWeekly is almost 50 years old? Yep. Some of the staff members were rum
maging around and found Volume 1, which was dated IQOI.
Has there been much change in 47 years? You should just see some of those papers! Of course, the
Cynosure used to be a weekly, and for a time it was a monthly magazine.
The BifWeekly has kept up with the times with modern headline type and streamlined makefup. This
paid off with a first place last spring at the NIPA Conference and the William Preston Davies plaque, which
was awarded to the best printed high school paper represented at the conference. We also came home with
the Adam Hat award for the best sports page and hrst places for editorials, columns, features, cartoons,
and photography. Quill and Scroll gave us their International FirstfPlace rating. We're not complaining.
Hard work usually will be rewarded. We aren't bragging, but the BifWeekly staff has worked hard.
Accomplishments this year include a new
V system of filing exchanges. We exchange papers
with 116 high schools and 17 colleges in the
United States. The latest issue of each of these
is available at the finger tips of any staff mem
ber who wants to examine it.
The BifWeekly is entering NIPA, NSPA,
and Quill and Scroll contests this year. Ref
sults will be available next hill.

lf' you should hear someone say, "I'll meet you clown in the laundry", chances are he is a member of
the Cynosure BifWeekly Business Staff, for the laundry is the BifWeekly Business StaH"s headquarters.
The staff is composed of three departments. Under the supervision of Miss Fowler, the adviser, each
of these departments is kept Working smoothly and efficiently.
The business manager, Marlys Eichmiller, is in charge of mailing out all the bills, receiving and ref
cording checks, and keeping the books in good order and upftofdate.
The advertising manager, W'anda Thompson, is in charge of checking in all ads a week before the paper
is to be published. Withoiit the aid of her eleven advertising solicitors she would be at a great disadvantage.
These girls go into the business districts of Fargo to sell advertising to the merchants. The girls are Aileen
Abelson, Delores Carsons, Dorothy Carsons, Virginia Edlund, Rita Eggum, Joanne Gilligan, Gloria Larson,
Gail Lohse, Marian Paris, Pat Ruud, and Beverly Thorstenson. On every other Wediiesdziy the assistant
advertising manager, Ruthann Mikkelsoii, proofreads the ads for errors.
Bonnie Gorthy, circulation manager, has
the duty to see that every person who subscribed
for a paper receives one. She also sends free
papers to former Fargo High students in the
military services and to all other outside sub'
scribers. On every other Friday, during the
sixth period,the fifteen members of the Distrif
hution Staff see that the Cynosure reaches its

NNUAL LITERARY ST FF
From September through May the Annual staff is on the job. First comes the selection ofa theme
and cover for the Annual. Then there is the preparation of the dummy. In the meantime a staff of photof
graphers are at work taking pictures. There is hardly a day that passes without some pictures being taken.
These are then sent to the engraver to be engraved according to a certain size set forth in the dummy.
Wheti the proofs come back, the editors identify the individuals in the proofs and write up the necessary
copy for the printer. just try to find the names for all the faces.
Anyone who has not served on an Annual staff cannot appreciate the amount of work and the number
of details involved in putting out a yearbook. At last the day arrives when the last page is sent to the printer.
Wliitt a relief to he alwle to relax once more! But it has been a lot of fun. It's an experience We wouldtft
miss for anything.

ANNUAL B S NESS STAFF
Although the Annual Business Staff is small, our job is a big one. For accomplishing the allfimportant
task of collecting necessary money and distributing the Annual in the spring, Mr. Skonnord, our adviser,
divided the staff into three groups.
Most students of FHS have seen at one time or another the photographers shooting Cvvith cameras off
coursej groups of students and action shots of our teams,
The advertising manager and the assistant advertising manager have the hard job of soliciting money
contributions from Fargo and Moorhead business firms.
The business manager does many of the necessary odd jobs, such as collecting the money taken in by
the teachers for the subscriptions and the senior cuts.
Mr. Skonnord is the man who really makes the stall' ntiekn. 'All our activities are under his close super'
vision and his approval.

The baton corps is made up of sophomores, juniors, and seniors. This year there are
thirteen girls belonging to this organization.
These girls meet mornings at eight o'clock. At these sessions they practice intricate
twirls, tosses, and formations to be used in future performances.
This year their performances consisted of football games, basketball games, the
tournament, and the Jack Frost Winter Carnival Parade.
Their costumes for the football games were white pedal pushers, purple letter sweaters,
and white sailor caps. Their regular costumes are made from silver jewel cloth and purple
velvet. Each girl was responsible for making her own costume.
A new board has been established in school to deal with problems confronting the
baton corps. This board consists of Miss Carney, Mrs. Thornby, and Miss Zarling.
Girls who wish to belong to the baton corps must appear before this board before they are
accepted as members of the corps.
Girls who wish to join must be dependable and willing to cooperate.

SMOKE AGAINST THE SKY
Blue smoke from
Twisting way in starlit
To be a flame.
Grey smoke touched the
Slipped its wily fingers
The oaks and stole
In the night.
Black smoke hovered
In the autumn noon. No
Of free men
No land, no name.
I --Mary Louise Whedon
THE KLEENEX PLAGUE
The wads of paper, candy, gum--A
Oh, I admit these gripe me some--
But, boy, the thing that makes me yell
Is Kleenex found in my inkwell.
No punishment could be too bad-
My only wish is that I had
The right to tar and feather those
Who use the stuff to blow their nose.
I guess Kleenex is here to stayg
It's used by thousands everyday.
So blow away, but meek we ask it-
Please drop it in the nearest basket.
One hundred nineteen
The sting of a long forgotten pain
Is the needle prick on my weary brain.
The sound of a long forgotten tune
Is like a shot in the silent room.
My mind is as a ship at sea,
The ponderings conflict aimlessly.
My thoughts are vague and unexpressed
And give my troubled mind no rest.
I strive for speech but make no sounded
My ship at sea can sight no ground. ' .
I ponder, think, and concentrate,
But thoughts will not make words, of late.
A forgotten hope, a dreamed of plan,
How in accessible to man.
Why cannot man express his thoughts?
Why do his words amount to ought?
Words are such inexpressive things.
Only in brain a true thought rings.
Only in mind may some thoughts dwell,
A word is just an empty shell.
Oh, would that man might turn his hand '
And point to some far distant land-
"There speech will say all wanted said,
There thoughtshnake perfect words", he said.
But this is not, can never beg
Some thoughts are only ships at sea,
They have no landing, know no rest,
Are merely ponderings in the breast.
Some ships at sea may yet sight land
Upon some yet far distant strand,
And there a word that's meant to be
May find a resting out of sea.
Yes, then is when a true thought's born
And vague conflictions true are torn.
For then a truth that's ne'er been said
May stir the living, rouse the dead.

ing students grow into fine eitizens .
These two men will be missed next year, but their
thoughts and ideas will linger in the sehool and among
the student body.
It is to Mr. Long and Mr. Wendell that we proudly
dedicate our IQ63 Deleakonian.

Superintendent Grant johnson acts as a median between the public and the school . It
is his duty to familiarize the school board and the public with the problems which may
come up in the functioning of our school system. Mr . johnson is also in charge of the
annual school budget, the faculty and personnel of the school, and the planning of ad-
Mr. Herman Hulin is the administrative assistant. Mr. Hulin directs public opinion
by presenting their ideas and wishes to the school board.
The members of the school board represent that communities views, its wants, and
its likes and dislikes and relates them to the school system. They also determine the
number of days in the school year, all vacations, selecting the faculty, and the
qualifications and salaries of the teachers.
As 1962-63 was the last of seven years at D.L.H.S. , Principal C. H. I-Iegdal Will be
greatly missed. He did much for the Detroit Lakes school system, and his absence wil
be a great loss to our school system. It was his responsibility to supervise class
schedules, teaching programs, disciplinary actions, and school activities.
The secretaries, Miss Marcille Marotzke, secretary of Superintendent Grant john-
song and Mrs. Ruby Wiedewitsch, secretary of Principal C. H. Hegdal, keep the routin
running smoothly. Their endless tasks are performed capably and cheerfully.
The administration of a school has a great influence on a student body. The ad-
ministration of D.L .I-I .S. is certainly one which is qualified as a molder of today s

Representing the country of Turkey,
we had Adil Zafer Zaim as a student at
our school the past year. Nicknamed
"Zaf, " he was the son of Mr. and Mrs
Tom Rogstad during his stay in D. L,
His real home was Istanbul, Turkey,
Zaf was chosen to represent his countrj
in the American Field Service Program
This choice was based on his scholastic
ability, participation and leadership in
school activities and character.
Zaf's academic program in America
consisted of English, social studies,
SMSG, physics and art II. He kept a
high scholastic average considering his
extra -curricular activities .
In exchange for his talks and dis-
cussions about Turkey, Zaf developed
first -hand pictures of the U .S ., which
he took home to his family and to the
people of his country.
As he looks back to this year, he
finds many happy memories, which
will be remembered through his life,
giving him the picture of the wonderful
year he spent in Detroit Lakes.
