She is a girl who can do almost any' thing and do it well. Being valedictorian would be enough for the rest of us, hut Barb lends a helping hand in every phase of school life. A day with her would probably include a beforefschool hand practice, a full six hours of studies, and, after most of us have gone home, more workaun the annual or the Otter. Come suppertime, and she hurries home, only to return for International, Thespian, or prefflight. Her spare time achievements have also included winning a state essay contest and participation in a district speech festival. Although quiet and eflicient, she is also wellfknown for her gay laughter and Mpractical jokes." Her dependability is a joy to her teachers, and her willingness to work is something ever. we students appreciate. She may be small, but she's going to leave a big void in Fergus High. Although younger than most seniors Walter has encountered no difficulty in holding his own among the "oldsters." Thorough and de- pendable, he carries through any assignment. His consistently level- headed and mature opinions are respected by all of us, and he has proved his executive ability as business manager of the Otter. During his three years in band and orchestra, he has developed into a mainstay of the trombone section. And what would the bass section of the chorus be without Walt? A firm believer in the saying, "clothes help make the man," Walter nevertheless proves his true versatility by doing equally well in overalls at home on the farm. Here is a man for whom opportunity will knock more than once, in fact, a man for whom opportunity has been looking. .PNWQ f- Seniors Mary Lois Rulifson: Fifteen rahs for Loueyl If she has a lot of pep, a ready smile, and a helping hand, that's probably Mary Lois you've been noticing. Refreshing, yet sensible, she is one of the outstanding personalities of Fergus High. Boundless energy and activity make her a familiar 'figure around school, at basketball and football games, and even on Main Street, where you will likely find her getting ads for the annual or leading a homecoming pep meeting. She is also noted for her efficiency- for the way she gets things done while the test of us are still discuss' ing them. Winning this year's D. A. R. award is a fitting climax to four years of high school activity. All this, coupled with a high scholastic average, makes us realize that here is a girl who will make her mark in the world. Gaius Thede: He may wander aimlessly down the halls with apparently nothing on his mindg but beneath that calm exterior lies morefthanfaverage ability, as evidenced by "Gayo's" long list of activities and scholastic achievements. As president of the Student Council, he has impressed us all with the importance of that body, and his fine speaking voice has made a success of many a convocation program. His ability as a writer earned for him first place in the annual V. F. W. city wide essay contest, and for his interest in science he has named recipient of the Bausch' Lomb Award. Gaius rounds out his character with his musical abilities-singing bass in the chorus, playing the string bass in the orchestra, and pound' ing a mean marimba. Having lived in Japan most of his life, Gaius has attended Wash' ington High for only one and onefhalf years, but in this short time, he has carved for himself a definite niche in Fergus Falls. AWARDS Imagine anyones having the stamina to take Latin for four years and to maintain a straight "A" throughout! Kathleen Sullivan ae' complished that feat and won the Eta Sigma Phi award as a result of her "A" work. lviayhe they're planning hig things hehind those knowing looks-- -perhaps a suhstitute for ruhher, or a way of extracting aluminum from its ore. Kathleen and Gaius, in the estimaf X 15 's I Her personality, willingness to work, and patriotism won for Mary' Lois Rulifson the coveted DAR award. XVe're proud of you, Mary Loi S. tion of the faculty, have made the greatest progress in science during their high school careers. For their efforts they were named recipients of the BausclifLonih award. Orator, Hrstfrate, f that's Adef line. Speaking on the topic, "To day an American Died," she placed first in a state oratorical conf test held at St. Cloud. As regional winner of the 4H contest for her extemporaneous talk on the "Four Freedoms," she won a S25 war hond and a trip to Miiineapolis. Good citizens, Norma and Walter, find it no hardship to he hetter Americans. They were awarded the VFW good citizenship award. ' O Democracy-Student Council fi, It's a wise council that rises early for the affairs of state. Maybe that's why the activities of the Student Council have been so success' ful. The homecoming was bigger and better than ever. The senior high beat the junior high in the junior Red Cross drive. The shine of the trophy case nearly blinds you when you enter the building. The bond campaign .,.. welll! Thats what comes out of early risers. Officers Trophy Project Donald Larson, Secretary Navy Underwood Gaius Thede, President Cams. Thede Colleen Campbell, Vice President Phyllis Barke Dorothy Froslie DREAM GIRLS "Within A Dreaming Harbor", "Dreaming", and other songs of this type have made the girls' octette an audience favorite.

This has been proved by the audiences' enthusiastic reaction at convocations, concerts, a "Food for Freedom" rally, and special programs. "The Morning, Noon, and Night Overture," "Down South," and themes from Beethoven's "Fifth Symphonyw are among its most popular selections.

The kids learn how to apply rnakefup: how to speak correctlyg how to pantomine, Oh. I could go on and on. By the way, you can win enough points to get into Thes' pians. XVhat do you say? "Be careful of my hair! Ouch, that stuff hurts my eyes! Do you have to put so much grease paint on? I look like an Indian!" Don't he alarmed. They are just exclamations that popped out of the feminine devotees of the drama the night they pracf ticed applying makefup. It was messy fun! 41 SPEECHMAKERS The most grandiloquent activity of the Speech Cluhs this year was the choric "If He Could Speak." Complete with chorus, orchestra, versefspeaking choir, and speaking actors, the spectacle portrayed in a graphic way the humanity and greatness of Wash' ington. Speech students, however, have lent their talents to other helds. They have discussed the prohlcms ot' the world in panel discussions and extempora- neous talksi and portrayed masterpieces of literature i in interpretative readings. Nr AND WE HAD A FORMAL INITIATIQN!! "Yes, our initiations really have that cerf tain something!" Besides presenting two elabf orate initiation ceremonies, one in which robed Thespians delivered messages under ghostly blue lights and one during which the audi' torium was filled with the swish of multifcolf ored formals, the Thespians found time to prof duce and direct a onefact play every month. The membership of the Thespian Society has grown by leaps and bounds. Starting with eight members last fall, they will finish the year with thirtyfnine enrollees. An honorary society in every sense of the word, it has ac' cepted only aspirants who have proved their dramatic interest and ability. Sadie Socks the Saboteurs Thank You, Doctor WHAT'S NEWS Studies vital to every American citizen kept nineteen Inter' national Relations Club members busy during 19-011943. They made it their business to understand better the aims and views of the United Nations, sketching briefly the background of each. Upftofdate supplementary news was discussed twice a month. With every American so concerned with world events, the International Relations Club holds a spot all its own among Fergus Falls High School activities. A BIT GF RESEARCH Seniors studying? A bit of scholarly ref search, no doubt. Mary Lois Rulifson, Bar' bara Barke, and Gaius Thede are getting set for a ine discussiondwell, maybe its on World Affairs.

Halverson If WINGS OVER AMERICA We're not fooling. The PrefFlight Class, new this year, is as modern as the latest styles. Providing a foundation of basic aeronautical knowledge, the class is designed to aid boys and girls in this air- conscious age to prepare themselves for actual flight. During the course of the year these airfmincled youths learned all about the principles of aeronautics and heavierfthanfair machines. Busying them- selves with maps, papers, pencils, and rulers, they discovered the fundamental rules of avigation, interception, compass work, and weather forecasting. The flight enthusiasts, who devoted a two' hour period every Monday and Wednesf day to the class, report that they had ample opportunity to gain at least an insight into the intricacies of aeronautics. We salute the future air power of the United States. 1 '1 Last, hut certainly not least, is the staff of loyal typists: Leora Schuetze, Marian Sundberg, Mildred jorgenson, Connie Trosvig.

Although the Hall men lost to the power ful "Wops", they showed marked improvement in defeating Alexandria and even in losing to Fargo and Moorhead by close margins. All of which brought the season to its climax, the homecoming game with the "Railroaders". The Otters "steamed through Staples" in their best game of the year. The Fergus eleven then completed their schedule by losing to mighty St. Cloud and defeating Barnesville and Breckenridge. ILIFF CHRISTENSON WINDMILLER BERGESGN SHEVA SEIM HEYEN JOHNSON BASKETBALL It was not surprising that the Otter basketball team should lose their first eight games of the 19424943 season when they had to build practically a whole new team. However, after their first win with Barnesville, the Hall men became one of the out' standing teams in the district. Although the season's record showed four wins against thirteen defeats, the Fergus Five was really better than these figures show In the subfdistrict tournament at Detroit Lakes, the Otters won the championship by defeating Frazee and Perham. However, in the district tournament, the Otters dropped their first round game to Moorhead in the most thrilling game of the year, BASKETBALL SCORES Fergus Falls ..,.,,............ 21 Pelican Rapids ..,.......,.,. 36 Fergus Falls Fargo ............
