Soon construction will begin and this imposing edifice will arise from the ashes and dust of past buildings that have succumbed to the ravages of time, hate, and destruction. It is the duty of the young men and women of tomorrow so to build this structure that it will withstand prejudice, distrust, and selfish greed. To these builders we dedi- cate this Annual. FF"'?.."1"-I 'Il fr:-Q, ."-f-- K if 4-I. FGREWARD Seniors, you have taken off from Wash- ington Field and are on your way to your chosen destinations. Many are flying directly to commercial fields where they shall start sewing mankind immediately. Others are going to advanced training bases where they will become better pilots and acquire better instruments. Some will soon bear the insignia of Uncle Sam. It is their duty to maintain freedom of the air. This Annual is a Flight Log of your basic training. As you glance at it in later years may it inspire you to open your throttle and climb from the clouds of doubt into the brightness of clear judgment. Good luck, and may strong tailwinds attend all your flights.

Kloster, Ralph Sinner. A student at Washington Field usually remembers his C. O. and Flight ln- structors but he may target the governing body behind this organization. They manage to obtain instructors and keep everything operating smoothly in spite ot difficulties they may encounter. To the schoolboard We owe a tremendous debt of appreciation and gratitude for what they have done in helping us toward our goal. YV Students of the Fergus Falls High School: Henry Van Dyke offers good counsel in, "The Foot Path to Peace." "To be glad of life because it gives youithe chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars: to be satisfied with your possessions, but not contented with yourself until you have made the best of them: to de- spise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except coward- ice: to be governed by your admirations rather than by your disgustsf to covet nothing that is your neighbors except his kindness of heart and gentleness of mannersp to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends and every day of Christ, and to spend as much time as you can with body and with spirit, in God's out-of-doors --these are little guideposts on the foot-path of peace." EDW. BECHTEL, Principal Students of the Fergus Falls High School: The older generations have failed miserably in attempts to solve the world's great problems. They have been deceived by the subtle shib- boleths of the past thirty years, deceived by in- competent selfish politicians who have sought personal gain rather than the promotion of the welfare of humanity, deceived by the wishful thinking of the masses who have had visions of an impractical Utopia not of this world. Former generations have produced geniuses in the fields of science and invention, and because of these inventions, a social order that they have been unable to control. The great need of the future is leadership- a leadership which is able to control the dis- coveries and machines produced by the inven- tive genius of the human mind: leadership in the social, economic, and political fields: a lead- ership which has discrimination of the highest formy a leadership that will build on the ideas, faith, and ideals discarded as useless by pre- vious generations. Such leadership will come from this high school and from other high schools throughout the nation. Through that leadership, the civiliza- tion developed through ages of bloodshed and torture, will be preserved and unfolded accord- ing to God's great plan for the universe. LEO H.

"She's all right." "Who says so?" "We all say so." For four years Dorothy has led the cheering section of Fergus High. Sometimes We marveled at any one person's possessing so much pep and energy-especially at 9:30 in the morning when a pep fest was included in the convocation program. Her devotion to sports, especially to football and basketball, was wonderful to behold, In spite of the fact that she worked at Norby's after school every day and on Saturday, Dorothy participated in band, G.A.A., and Thespians. She was a member of the annual staff, and furthered the democracy of our institution by serving on the student council for two years. We hope that the "Queen of the Otters" will succeed elsewhere as she has here ELLERY ROBERTS. Something important going on? Ellery's in it! Ellery around? Something im- portant will happen! That sums up Ellery as we know him-never a dull moment from morning to night. Ellery's leadership in extrafcurricular activities, including Thespians, radio club, and International Relations was certainly deserving of special recognition. He gained a high rank on the Honor Roll, was a member of the National Honor Society, and as a reward for his outstanding accomplishments in his science classes, he received the Bausch-Lomb science award. For many years he was a mainstay of the band and he also displayed special ability as a soloist on his sousaphone. lf there's a difficult character part in a play, Ellery is your man. He has given excellent portrayals of everything from a pampered darling to a nervous wreck. His ever-present wit and smooth personality will carry him far on the road to success. '11 uf 'tv N NORMAN GIORGINI: Would this little realm of ours collapse without this quiet, efficient, son o' the soil, Norman Giorgini? One would almost think so when we think of his accomplishments. Norman's studiousness won for him the rank of valedictoriang he was president of the National Honor Society, and also received the V.F.W. award. Play practice for several plays took up many of his after school and after supper hours. Being the announcer for the "School of the Air" sent his clear, distinct voice out over the air waves. He proved a valuable addition to the football team and to intramural sports. Norman's non-participation in the pleasures of "coke, girls, and song" is repre- sentative of quite a few of the senior boys, but he did have a good time anyway, and we believe that his "formal" education and his hard work will bring big dividends in the future. BEVERLY OYEN: "Bev" is the gal who puts her gray matter to good use and still manages to "get around"-all of which makes for quite a combination. Her seemingly ceaseless ambition accounts for her not only taking an active part in extra-curricular activities but also for working at the hospital and clinic before and after school. She belonged to Thespians, International Relations, and served faithfully as a clarinetist ir: the band for four years. As a result of her work in high school she was one of the initial members of the National Honor Society, salutatorian, and recipient of the D.A.R. award. At present she is interested in nursing, but no matter what her life work may be, fortune will surely smile on her. HCDNCDRARY AWARDS up-QL lsr-26 'nl R at qpaigx- W4 Two good citizens, Mardelle and Norman, are the recipients ot the V.F.W. good citizenship medals. This award is given on the basis of scholarship, leadership, courage, loyalty, temperance, and cooperation. The war didn't stop the Bausch 6 Lomb Optical Com- pany 'from Qivinq the science award again this year. Ellery, whose ambition is to be a chemist, has made exceptional progress in science studies dur- inq his high-school career. ig-Q-'f ,X ft , Beverly, the proud wearer ot the DAR. citizenship pin, en- joyed a trip to the state Conven- tion in Minneapolis last March. Dependability, service, leader- ship, and patriotism are the basis for which this pin is given.

Seated, left to right: Steve Alnes, Benny Heinze, Ellery Roberts, Dorothy Froslie, Mark Foss. Democracy reigns in Fergus High through our Student Council.

Our student council is a body of the students, by the students, and for the students' benefit. OFFICERS Ellery Roberts .......... President Benny Heinze ...... Vice President Dorothy Froslie--- D...

Various suspects have been found, tor Dan Winterslip's career has not been irreproachable. There is a story ot buried gold, a mysterious chest to whose ownership a jewel- ed pin is the clue. The pin was found by the floor near his body and it is sur- mised that a certain woman may have dropped it there.

"On Fergus" The Pep Band, which is directed by Mr. Hedlund and composed of members of the Concert Band, played at all Home football and basketball games. They also played at both the District and Regional Basketball Tournaments at Moorhead, thru the assistance ot the athletic department. Are You With Us? These peppy little gals helped to put plenty of enthusiasm into our cheering section at the games. These girls, the Iunior-Hi cheerleaders are Io Ann Deiseth, Ierry Iensen, and Pearl Miller. Lets Have a "Team Rah" Dorothy Froslie, Paula Iohnson, and loyce l-lagge, our blond Senior-Hi cheer- leaders, are tops, as has been evi- denced by the inspiration which they have been for the team, and student body. Whether losing or winning, these girls have been right out there, giving their all. GCOD MORNING STUDENTS AND . . Every Wednesday morning at 11:15, Fergus Hi goes on the air with a program of its own, originating in its studios in Washington Hi. Each department in both junior and senior high school presents one program. The performances of the Radio Club include several radio broadcasts and two convocations. The announcer this year was Nor- man Giorgini, with Warren V011- brecht as Newscaster and Dorothy Hoglund as Feature Reporter. Tech- nicians were Billy Vollbrecht, Delos Dunlap, Paul Thede, Duane Wething, and Art Barke. The faculty advisor and instructor was Mr. Carlson. DRAMA CLUB Amateur actors find a training camp for the National Thespian Society in the Drama Club. As evi- dence of this ambition, they have the play, "Why the Chimes Rang", which was presented at Christmas time, and a radio broadcast, also pre- sented at Christmas time. Aviation-Profession ot the Future Aeronautics definitely has an im- portant part in the future. For this reason, a Pre-Flight class has been organized under the guidance of Mr. Carlson. This group meets two nights a week in the chemistry rooms to study the science of aeronautics. G. A. A. Physically Fit -that describes these girls who meet once a week in the new gym under the direction of Miss lrmen.

Although the Otters were weakened considerably by injuries about the middle of the season, they managed to come through with a .500 percentage. Coaches McLeod and Pearce took the team to Wahpeton for the first game where they battled to a 7-7 tie. The Fargo Midgets proved too much for the Otters as they dropped a 14 to 21 decision to them in the second game. The Otters trampled their next two opponents, Barnesville and Staples, by scores of 46 to U and 39 to 6 respectively. ln the next game the Qtters bowed to mighty St. Cloud 31 to 6. Breckenridge next fell before the Otter charge 21 to O. Moor- head upset the Otter homecoming 14 to U. And in the final game Fergus Falls and Alexandria wound up in a 13-13 deadlock. By virtue of his fine performances at left half back, Evie Faunce was placed on the All-State Team. Pat O'Meara and Steve Alnes also received honorable mention.

They started rather slowly, dropping several games by one and two-point margins. After Christmas vacation, however, the Otters were break- ing into the "win" column regularly, When the season ended, the Otters had l0 wins to their credit against 8 defeats. During the course oi the season, the Otters broke two winning streaks, Elbow Lakes 8 game winning streak and West Fargo's 23 game streak. Going into the district tournament the Otters were determined to take the championship. They coasted through the opening round against Perham with the reserves playing most of the game. In the semi-finals the Otters were paired against Moorhead. lt was a hardetought coritost, but the Otters came out victorious, 30 to 25. ln the championship game the Otters sguaredeoft against the Detroit Lakers. ln a strictly defensive game the Otters came out victorious and were Crowned district champions. Ed Melby, Steve Alnes, and Evie Faunce were placed on the All-District Team. In the first game of the regional tournament, the Otters bowed in defeat before a tough Crosby- lronton team. In the consolation game the Otters were easy winners over Alexandria, 60 to 38. Ed Melby and Roger Larson were placed on the All-Regional Team.

INTO THE PAST Remember 'way back in grade school what a treat we considered it to get chocolate milk instead of just plain milk for our mid-morning repast? And how in the spring we had to drink it right away so it wouldn't get hot? .... Forever and everlasting, the favorite recess games were always pump pump pullaway and stealing sticks. On days when we couldn't go outside it was eraser tag . . . . . Remember the day over at Madison when little Evie Faunce made Chuckie Estrem pay him 15 cents for a birthday present because there were no eats furnished? ..... In those days the keyword to possession was "dibbies." And the plea for a hand-out was "Aw, come on! Bute!" unless tho other guy could get in "No buts!" before you spoke up . . . . Remember how little Dorothy Hoglund invariably traipsed into school every day with a new species of butterfly to show Teacher be- fore adding it to her already sizable collection? ..... Remember how proud we were when we became sixth graders and could take on that very responsible task of being school patrols? We always got an ice cream cone at the end of the year as a reward for our heavy duties . . . . . Remember the time Georgia Musser declared she was going to be a tap dancer? And Chuck Estrem's ambition was to be a mis- sionary! ..... Remember how we always believed that snap dragons really did snap? And how we steered clear of those blue beetles be- cause they had needles for noses and would stitch up your mouth good and proper if you ever told a lie? Remember when we entered the junior high school as timid little seventh graders? The way we dashed around wild-eyed the first day of school asking the first person we bumped into, please, where was Room 71 or what floor was Miss Whosit's room on? ,.... Remember how we always walked single file in straight orderly lines from class to class, never getting out of line by a fraction of an inch? Now when we have occasion to go over on the junior high side, we usually find our progress completely halted by a solid little line of seventh or eighth graders solemnly marching to their classes. Slight contrast from the senior high side-eh, what?!! ..... Remember the home room clubs every Friday? The girls always brought their embroidery and the boys messed around either with stamp collections or else those crazy little model airplanes ..... Remember the day Barb Hallett and Tetta Lee were sent to the of- fice for leaning out the window in the girls' locker room? .... Remem- ber how all the boys flocked to the cooking class when the idea was first inaugurated in F. F. H. S.? How cute the girls thought it was that those poor dizzies wanted to learn to cook? .... Of course you boys wouldrrft remember this, but do you girls remember the first day of gym class in seventh grade when we had to take showers? We were so very modest and so painfully embarrassed! We stood around with our towels wrapped carefully about us grinning at each other for about five minutes before anyone got up nerve enough to go in-and at that with their towels still wrapped around them. Wasn't Elsie Peder- sen the first brave soul to venture forth? .... Of course the highlight of every freshman's career is always Fresh- man Night. Remember ours 'way back in 1940? Do you remember the officers who were initiated? Donnie Larson was president, Mardelle Brandon was vice president, Dorothy Nelson was the secretary, and Chuck Bullock was treasurer. Remember how Mr. Haaby, the recently wed seventh grade history teacher, had to demonstrate to a lifesize cardboard Coca Cola girl how he proposed to his wife? And how poor Miss Mtdthun had to do a balancing act on the little conductor's platform held a foot off the ground while she leaned on Mr. Gustaf- son? Yes, it was quite a party ..... Remember the day in ninth grade when Miss Mitchell made Marion Lundeen and Lucille Willer go to the washroom and wipe off their lipstick? Remember in senior high how we always hollered so loud and long about those blessed little Unity for Victory and Unity for Peace themes-and never got any results? Well, there's one pleasant thought in connection with them-You always experienced such a feeling of re- lief when they were handed in-for that year, at least ..... Of course you all remember tas who could forgetll the episode of the velvet bow ties. There is history in the making, dear readers. Long flowing ones, they were, in the most delicate of shades. And who started the fad? None other than our dear friend, Mr. Ellery Roberts -closely followed by Warren Vollbrecht and Carroll Kastelle tto men- tion but a few of the demented malesl. But when the master scientist of the age, Marvin Strissel, made his appearance with a red velvet bow tie fluttering in the breeze, that was the touch 'sublime. Bring me the icebag, Mother. lt's just too much for me ..... Remember in our junior year the slam book fad that was started? And how Mr. Bechtel finally had to intervene? Those deals were pretty rugged. But at least you got to know what the other fellow thought ..... Remember that day in our junior year when we sat up in the music room while a red hot debate raged about us concerning the ques- tion ofa junior-senior banquet? Who would think that such thunderous oratory could emit from the lips of such outwardly shy and reticent per- sonalities as Steve Alnes fthe Senatorl, Patrick Henry O'Meara, Brad Brimhall, and Warren Luebke! Remember the growing excitement over the petition, the climax occurring when a two-thirds majority was reached? For a while it looked like a little more than friendly rivalry between the two "parties" But the banquet itself proved very con- clusive evidence to all of us that it was well worth the time and effort that was necessary to make it a success ..... Remember when Sin- atra first struck the hearts of all red-blooded female members of the F. F. H. S. student body? And the pictures and pictures and pictures of Frankie in every possible size, shape, and pose decorating every locker of every loyal Swooner? Remember the utter contempt with which the boys beheld those pictures-and the tems drooling over them? Remember how absurdly happy we felt that night at the district tournament when Fergus received the lEl44 championship trophy? How proud of "the boys" we were? Isn't it a wonderful feeling to remember that the year we were seniors, our school basketball team, four out of the first five of whom were seniors, won the district tournament? We had a right to be proudl ..... Remember the gruesome physical fit- ness program innovated in this time-honored and time-worn institution the year we reached the rank of seniors-just one year too soon to suit us? Those much loved "conditioning" units which far from con- ditioned us? On the contrary, it took about six weeks thereafter to recover from theml ..... ' Remember when we were seventh graders how we looked up at the seniors as if they were some brand of white gods? They seemed ages older than we were. Then as we grew older, each succeeding class of seniors grew younger. When we reached our junior year, we wondered how we could have thought seniors were so old. And after we became seniors ourselves, we were amazed at how young we still felt-in spite of ourselves! Ah, well, such is life .... And so we leave the past to proceed into the future-with a very interesting prophecy of the years to come . . . . . suv INTG THE FUTURE After that long tiresome journey from the past, bumping up and down in the old AA-26, how excited we are to be skimming into the future in our streamlined FF-44. Once inside this special airplane de- signed by Marvin Strissel and Donald lerien, we're able to look thru the new futuriscope and see what our former classmates are doing to keep out of mischief. tBy the way, this is the same machine Marvin used to go to Mars in. He made the trip in record time and got back the day before yesterday.l The readers twe do hope there will be a fewl must remember that we are traveling at such terrific rate of speed -faster than a bullet, faster than a speeding locomotive, and even faster than Superwoman Dorothy Nelson-that we can't possibly see everyone, but what we do get a glimpse of is quite authentic. Isn't it super duper to be whizzing through the clouds instead of study- ing? But look! There's a great tall factory. That must be where Pat O'Meara and Bugs Gamber manufacture lefsa and stolerolapulsa for the Scandinavians of the surrounding country. Ah ha, it looks like Ellery Roberts is booked up for another tour of Minnesota with his "Bevy of Beautiful Babes" starring Susan Hayward. His famous troupe is presented under the auspices of the General Ex- tension Division of the University of Minnesota. Margaret Alsaker has just been promoted to the position of head telephone operator at French. Roger Larson owns a ballet troupe in New York. He's rapidly be- coming wealthy since he doesn't have to pay his star ballerina. tNa- turally, a wife doesn't ever get much, does she, Gwennie?J Oh my! "Meatball" Melby has turned vegetarian and refuses to eat anything but shredded lettuce and beet tops. Rhoda Cloeter must have changed her mind about certain things because now she owns a factory which turns out slack ensembles- snood, organdie blouse, slacks, striped anklets and pumps. You may get the complete outfit for only 33.65. Better put in your order today. Kenny Braatz, manager of the Lyric Theaters, Inc., has a chain of twelve show houses in neighboring communities. lolyn takes tickets in the afternoon and the four little ones serve as ushers. Nothing like keeping it in the family! Marion Lundeen has settled down on a turkey farm east of Pelican Rapids. Also in the vicinity is Beverly Boen, who is the girls' athletic director at the Pelican High School. Iva Mae Boren and Shirley Wilkinson, who are now grandmothers, seem to be handing out advice to former classmates just starting their marital careers. The head mistress of a very exclusive iinishing school for girls is Alice Ash. Speaking about schools-Ieanette Carlson is conducting a Charlotte Atlast course for puny boys who want to become MEN. You should see the finished products! Warren Vollbrecht, "King of Burlesque," is the manager of the Alvin Theater. Among his troupe of burlesque queens are Virginia Smith and Alice Beske. Lorraine Fenske is making quite a hit as a blues singer and Ordean Larson acts as chief bouncer. Glen Peterson and Grace Gamble have formed the Peterson and Gamble Taxi and Transport Service. Glen keeps the Ford hot taking calls, and Grace operates a fast line between Fergus Falls and Elbow Lake. Leora Schutze is the supervisor of a large New York office. She has almost fifty girls in her charge and among the fastest ttypists, of coursel are Harriett Kalvick and Arlene Hagen. When not sleeping, Vernie Larson still matches nickels for a living. His income tax for last year amounted to S6,973.47. Patti Theurer has transferred her affections to the army. Norman Giorgini, tTommy Manville lll, the society playboy, has been married and divorced eight times. He is at present madly in love with a movie starlet and has very favorable prospects for his ninth attempt. loyce Rippie and Colleen Loomer are co-professors of German at Harvard. They attribute their success to the valuable training they received in high school. Mary Budack and Franklin Schutte have bought out the Wrigley Company. Willie Nelson has written a book to prove his point that just be- cause you give a girl your class ring, that doesn't mean you have to go steady with her. ' Dorothy Froslie is a cheerleader for Crosby-Ironton. Go CI! Go! Go CII Go! Go CI! Go! On his daily radio program over KGDE, Daniel Erickson, who is in partnership with Mr. Anthony, gives advice to all those victims of Cupid's arrows who are suffering from heart trouble. "Slip" Evenson is running a properous petticoat factory. Mardelle Brandon has accepted the position of campaign manager for the Republican party. Steve Alnes, former man about town, has become disgusted with the society in which he formerly circulated and has retired to a cave in the mountains. He refuses to speak to anyone save his two bosom buddies, Stanny and Bobby. Warren Luebke has just been appointed to the position of Poet Laureate by King George Marotteck of Corntopia, one of the new coun- tries formed after World War ll. Eleanor Pederson has started a beauty shop on the Fiji Islands. Instead of giving permanent waves, she specializes in the "De-kinker." That tough old line sergeant, Brad Brimhall, is still in the army and is still yelling at the trembling rookies to "pull in dat rutten podl" H Which is the bigger bag- Dorothy or the paper one?

I 91'- Well, we coulcl think of happier ways to end a Homecoming Festival, but evidently luck was against us. In spite ot the team's valiant efforts to make good the threats ofthe 1943 Homecoming slogan, "Behead Moorhead," the tables were reversed-with the result that Moorhead beheaded us, 14 to U. The various committees groaned at the thought of gas rationing, rubber shortage, crepe paper shortage, thumb tack shortage, inspiration shortage and a few other minor matters of the greatest importance, but they all managed to survive the ordeal, and had a swell time doing it-in spite of themselves. Also We might add that the results of their labors were really impressive. Homecoming Day started off in the wee hours lalong about 8:45 a.m.D with the Coronation of charming Queen Dorothy and the presentation of the various stunts cooked up by the classes. Then on with the show- the gay colorful parade and pep fest downtown in the afternoon. And of course the climax came in the even- ing when two strong rivals were pitted against each other in a hard-fought game of football. What if we did lose the game? Mere matter. Fer- gus got her revenge in basketball. There was still the usual happy aftermath down at Skogrno's. And chillun fthink of all the school we got out of! ll That's no mere matter! FAMILIAR Cllll AT Flllttl HIGH Does it taste good, Mary? Ah ha! Working during the Hem daytime-for a change. Danger! Woman at work! . Oh, oh! Who's wanted now?! M " agua Ah No comment.
