For the next few years the prospectors, Mama and Daddy, watched their little interests grow. Soon came the time when they decided that their investments needed some "lamin." Every Friday all the little "mamas" of the first grade proudly wheeled their doll buggies to school and exchanged tips on "baby care." After waiting patiently, the day came when the new Adams, Jefferson, and McKinley schools were finished. Although it was a great event, there were some disappointments. Vince Araskog, Marlys Larson, Melane Engen, and Joanne Elton of the Adams, shed big, round salty tears at the lack of a Ere chute in the new building. It seemed as if they had waited forever to be pro- moted to the 4th grade when they could have that thrilling slide down the chute at fire drills. Now they had to give up the chance. Over at the Lincoln, Kathryn Ruud, Anne Dahl, Dave Vogel, Audrey Loberg, and Henry Gerhardson were the envy of their class because they could travel "westward" to the new McKinley. B the time we were in the 6th grade we were really pa ing dividends. Of course sometimes we were baclf Mary Edlund became the first one to have scotch tape on her mouth for talking out of tum. Helen Lundeen was the first one in the Spring to wear anklets fthat is, until her mother caught herj. Out in District 28, Lowell Nissen was fascinated by the bell tower and climbed it at every opportunity. His brother, Norman, sat behind Gerry Drews and pulled her pigtails every time the teacher turned away. Then came the memorable occasion when we put on our new suits and dresses and started seventh grade. We were really growing up. Frankie Sinatra was the subject of a very dreamyf?J radio rogram in Home Room 73. We swooned and diol ed over him and collected his pictures. When the boys wouldn't cooperate, the talented 7th grade girls had to put on the Blondie and Dagwood play alone. Mil Straus played Blondie, Net Hanson, Dagwood, Helen Lundeen, Baby Dumplingg Doe Videen, Alvin, Dar Hanson, Mrs. Dithersg Ruth Morken, Mrs. Wippersnapper. Oh, yes, the Anti-P.M.B. Club was flourishing then too. As freshmen, our interests were changing somewhat. Girls went in for days when every- body wore red sweaters, slacks, and pigtails. The boys threatened to get heinies and wear white shirts, but they couldn't seem to unite for a common cause. Mr. Nyjordet's homeroom entertained them- selves and some lucky guests by hitching up old Dobbin for a sleighride. At the Freshman Party we were royally entertained by the Hill Billy Band. Remember the ofiicers' initiations when Paul Gust was only too glad and too willingfiij to show his motherly instincts by demonstrating how to bathe and change a doll? The next Fall found us migrating "westward,' into the great senior high. There we innocently joined the bustling throngs in the "great wide" halls. Fred Allen's radio program was the theme of our sophomore talent program. Orlin Fick as Fred Allen, and Ronald Anderson as Mr. Cassidy really stole the show. fBy the way, talent pro- grams were discontinued just after thatlj Our junior and senior years marked a drastic change in fashions. Everyone scrambled to lengthen their skirts and Gibson Girl blouses and ties were the latest fad. The long full- backed coats and knee socks came in handy when the mercury dropped and the north-"west" wind blew around the comers. "The Curse of an Aching Heart,', our junior Class Play, was an old-fashioned melodrama. Iuneal Lawrenson, the heroine, had a hard time to keep her water- soaked handkerchief from dripping before she was supposed to shed those tears. We sold a greater number of tickets than any other class before or since. In the Spring all our profits were spent in giv- ing the Senior Class a wonderful banquet based on the theme, "Dreamtime.,' Remember those crepe paper clouds that were strung across the ceiling of the church which kept getting lower and lower every time someone breathed? After a sensational Summer of traveling, vaca- tioning at lakes, working, baseball Lgames, and 'ust p ain loafing, we were all rea y to come back to roam our beautiful halls as high and mighty seniors. Homecoming was early this year as one of the events of "Know Your Own Strength Weekf' We were all very proud of our Queen, Mary jo Baker, and our King, Keith johnson, who reigned over our Homecoming Day. We were also elated over our great football team who won six out of their eight games. Although there were plans made for a new school to be built on the levee, we still don't have a new auditorium. One thing we are hon- ored to have a part in is the use of the inter- communication system. The first month or so its squeaks, blaring noises, and unexpected silences, were unusual, but we became accustomed to it. It proves very handy for the teachers when they leave for numerous trips to the office. All they have to do is turn on a switch in the office and everything going on in the room can be heard very clearly. We can't forget to make a special mention of our super basketball teams which have been tops for the three years we have settled in senior high. Our senior year ended in a whirl of fun. We had a wonderful party which took us way back to Grandmother's day to remind us that our state is celebrating its one hundredth birthday this year. We gave our class play "I Remember Mama" in April. Next year's seniors did a won- derful job of entertaining us at the annual junior- Senior Banquet. And then came june 2nd, and one of the most important events of our lives. We all marched down the aisles in our grey caps and gowns and received those cherished diplo- mas or which we had strived so long. Now we forty-niners wonder what our pros- pects for the future are, and, like the pioneers of old, we hope to strike it rich. -5- .bf 'er NORMAN NISSEN President HELEN LU NDEEN Vice-President CLASS COLOR Lavender Blue CLASS FLOWER Crocus CLASS MOTTO "Ever forward as whose virtue lies in struggle not in prize." a Pioneer SAGA OF A F ORTY-NINER fSung to the tune of "Clementine", I n a high-school, in a city, Excavating for a mind, Dwelt us minors, forty-niners, And our teachers, twenty-nine.

It was 2:30 on a dreary afternoon in Febm- ryg but as the electrons coursed through my body, ny ears began to buzz and my mind began to gitate. The bum of classroom conversation faded away, nd as I closed my eyes things began to crystallize before ly blurred vision. I found myself walking down a dusty trail when a imiliar voice cried, "Heyl Son, you're headin' the wrong ayl" A white haired fellow was peering at me from :hind a cactus. "You're goin' to town, ain'tcha?" he iestioned. "Town, what town?" I asked. "Why, Paul, Arizona, named after its founder. Chief ig Wind Gust." said the old-timer. "What's the matter, n, you looked kind of mixed up?" "I'll say I'm mixed up. Where am I? What time is it?" "Wal," the fellow said, "we're about live miles out of wn in the Arizona desertg it's 2:30 p.m.. Febmary 7. 99. and time for lunch. Come on into town and l'll ike you to a glass ololte. You could stand one." "0.K.," I said, rather bewildered, and we started down : road. Then I began to recognize my friend, Surelyl was Iohnny Miller. He told me he had become a 'ulthy man when he stumbled on a diamond mine lile searching for his pardners-Howard Baldwin and ike Anderson-who got lost while trying out their nged pogo sticks. Being very talkative, he went on to l me that the town is the home of the Silent Zipper mpany fonly factory-lubricated zipperl owned by Mae Deutschman and Katherine Holmquist. He said ice Araskog, chief street cleaner, and his helpers- ith Hagen, LeRoy Johnson, and Marvin Hanson-were ng very well collecting old oil cans. kt the edge of town we passed lCachel's Hardware re. In the window Judy Lawrenson was demonstrating "Cone Gadget" manufactured by the Duane Coese dget Company. On the other side of the strxet jo ter was working in a flower garden developing a new id" called L.C.K. She has as helpers-Dale Huse, FITI Schoening, and Dorothy Auseth. She told me she a filling orders for Betty Bergerud, Joyce Frantz, Kath- ie Simonson, and Shirley Muhlenbeck. Pat Frisch was :ding near by. She gave up fanning to take a college rse on conversation. . roar and a swirl of dust passed me, and Johnny in- ned me it was the Western Sightseeing Bus operated Iohn Holland. It makes regular trips to Keith John- s famous flower garden. Today he was taking Bix er, Dale Anderson, and jerry Heyen to see a new ety of barbed dandelion developed by Carol Malm- m. lso leaving town were Lowell Nissen and Donald 'o Gun" Pederson who have been elected Mayor and ill, respectively, of Podunk.

Junie Madsen, patronized them often. l Du Liber Augustine" with a mmba rhythm rang was out from a sidewalk cafe, "The Quick and Dirty," run hy George Teberg and Penne Johnson. In the trumpet section were Cookie Skugrud and Connie Lund. Next week, George told me, he was featuring Orlin F icl: and his band with Dave Aldrich and Bob Ripley as vocalists. By popular request jane Wefald may be added to form a trio. Following them will be Irene Schulz and Kenny Tiaden playing dinner inusic on the bass dmm and sousa- phone. This week "The Quick and Dirty" was having a special on "Munch,"-a food delicacy produced by Marcus Stortroen and Pete Willte. "There's nothing quite like 'Munch' for lunch," ex- claimed lohnnyg but I decided I wasn't hungry when informed that "Munch" was cucumbers aged in milk. On every table were placed copies of Vynnette Hanson's best seller Inside a Bowling Ball or Why I Cot Hole: in My Head. Now I knew I wanted to leave, but as we stepped into the street, another cloud of dust passed. Johnny told me it was a "Rekabecluts" lStudebaker spelled backwardsl, the car with four speeds in reverse. Its inventor, Bob Boren, says it's for one way streets. His only competitors are Roger Stein, who has a spring-wound auto, and Bill Boen, head of Pontomac Motors, and his super salesmen -Claire Olson and Marcus Opatz. The Fjord Garage closed after mechanics Marlys Haggstrom and Geraldine Drews fixed an inner tube with Scotch tape. Emie Sorben's twenty-four hour "You Yell, I Come" cab service was going full blast. Ernie was in the ollice reading Don Toso's book, Study of Colonial Problemsg although the noted critic, Alan Anderson, says it stinks. Emie was up on the news and told me all about those who were out of town. Since Connolly Bergene and Ber- nard Muths received their Ph.D.'s, they are touring the country lecturing on "How the High School Student Should Study." Emie said Thomas Robertson recently created a sensation by racing with Citation and winning by a nose, Mary jean Shaffer and Shirley Rix were in Canada with a girk' hockey team. Although the Canadian teams might be dangerous, Emie thought the girls would "melt the ice." Even farther north were Rose Ladwig and Phoebe Stock who were selling refrigerators to Eskimos. Yesterday Emie received a cablegram from Chinese missionary, Mary Lee Helseth. She and her assistants, Loma Mae Bergerson and Audrey Loberg, are teaching the Chinese Cennan. Wlnnifred Larson will soon join them. Back at Harvard, I was informed, Bea Holbeck teaches math and Jo Elton has charge of a Domestic Relations class. let Weaver is leading the Marine Band in Wash- ington. Senator Francis Sagdahl has been advocating "two families in every garage." Pressure groups are headed by Robert Quam and Kenneth Webb. In New York Lois Tomhave signed a contract with the Metropolitan Opera Company, while Marion Torgusson opened a hoop skirt shop on 5th Avenue. Lavonne Po- gard is first baseman with the Cleveland Indians. "Thanks, Emie," I said, 'but we gotta go." "Well," said Ernie, "if you need a cab, iust yell!" Johnny wanted to see the show across the street. Helen Lundeen was starring for the 10th consecutive year in the revival of "Annie Get Your Gun." The only other theater featured Pederson and Pederson fMarlene and Bevl in a can-can dance. We decided against a show but bought some Jolly Time Pop Com made by Joyce Anderson. Ordean Larson was busy mixing torn tickets with the butter. Joyce re- cw7wcQ called that Harriet Swenkrud was nominated as "The Girl We'd Like Most to Be Stranded Between Fergus and Dalton With" by the Dalton boys. She also told us that she and Evie Cichy were called to Hollywood to star in M.C.M.'s lMorken-Cortob-Melbyl "Lavender Blue" directed by Loran Johnson. The big news in Holly- wood is that Jen Swanton is associated with the famous designer, Audrey Brodin. Crunching our popcom, Johnny and I proceeded down the street. In a sidewalk booth Mildred Straus and Ioan Taylor were selling tickets for a summer cruise way up North on Minnesota's famed Lake Alice. They were also selling a pamphlet written by Elaine Ringquist and Doe Videen entitled "Bowling, the Long and Short of It." Bangl We were startled by a gunshot from a building occupied by the Erlandson and Erickson lArlene and LonAnnJ Detective Agency. They were working on the "Case of the Missing Spur." Two of their agents-Sybil Rossmiller and Kathryn Rund-are pursuing Darol Ander- son and Darell Carrison who tried to sell Manhattan back to the Indians. Johnny and I were stopped by jerome Miller who was looking for his pardner-in-crime, Lon Curtis. johnny told jerome that Lon was last seen heading for the Mexican border in search of a "warmer climate." "johnny," I asked, "what's that awful smell?" He told me that Dennis Boll had erected a factory in town to manufacture saddle glue. He employs Roger Tollefson, Mary Ann Schmidt, ,lim Kastelle, and Elaine Way. Their theme song is "I Can't Get Off of My Horse." The town had several inventors. Nomian Wellbroclr had a tractor that ran on whale blubber, and Nomr Nis- sen and Stanley Baglo were perfecting a square tumble weed that doesn't tumble. Johnny pointed out a restau- rant that Elaine Clausen had recently purchased from the food magnate, Joe Ierien. Her waitresses-Vivian Kort, Eleanor Jacobs, Marjorie Emery, and Doris Sander -were sewing aftemoon collee. I wanted a coke, but johnny insisted that I notice the fine educational system the town had. At the high school Mary Edlund and Mar- lys Larson taught Physics. For pin money the girls curl hair with static electricity. It was this school that helped train Lois Tenney and Mavis Vallevand. the world's fore- most typists. The girls hold the world's record of 360 words per minute. I.aVonne Evenson and Helen Bertle- son are in charge of the Chemistry department. This school developed Dan Quememoen, who has gained fame from his book, The Adventures of Cowboy Dun. His publishers are Nelson and Nelson Cliennetll and Lloydl. Newley, a photography school for shutter bugs, is op- erated by Mary Wylie and Helen Spldahl. Soon Henry Cerhardson will open his "Thschool for Thooth Who Lithpf' Dean of Women will be Gertrude Mantle-Ike. johnny and I proceeded to the other edge of town when' Bernard Muth's camival was playing. In the big tent we saw Ronnie Waldhan1, the clowng Dorothy Wanelt. the Lady Sword Swallowerg and the motorcycle racers- Mickey Halverson and Darlene Hanson. johnny insisted I ride the merry-go-round with him and I foolishly did. As we revolved faster and faster, my head began to spin again, and I could neither see nor hear johnny laughing beside me. I heard him mumble "76" and suddenly-Whaml a blinding llash flooded my brain! When it cleared, the class was laughing with Mr. Engan as he asked, "Did you feel it?" As the bell rang I thought to myself "Did l feel it?"- Physics-NUTSI Q 4 Ui c 0 MSW Sharing the highest scholastic honors are Vin- Previous to his lVest Point appointment, Vince cent Araskog and Lon Curtis, each with a 1.0883 was editor of the school paper, The Otter.

A charming addition to the Homecoming were two lovely girls-janet Davenport and Naomi Melby. In athletics the class of '50 also deserves great praise.

That period of our history is over. "We are in a life-and-death struggle for survival with com- peting systems of government, and competing sys- tems of economic organization." Two VVorld Wars have ushered in this era-an era in which the United States finds itself in the unwelcome position of world leadership with larger opportunities and greater ohligations than any nation has ever known. It is upon the assumption of these ohligations by the United States, and upon its acceptance of Di- vine leadership, that the future of mankind will he determined.

DOMINICK Superintenllenf i The vital pioneer spirit did not die or pass with the gold rush days of '49 or the settlement of Cali- fornia and our NVest Coast. New frontiers in Alaska, new explorations in the Arctic and other sections of the world offer new opportunities to many. The undiscovered frontiers in the fields of sci- ence, agriculture, mining, transportation, commu- nication, government industry and social service are a direct challenge to those who dare seek new outlets and activities, to those who want to make the world a hetter place in which to live. These new frontiers demand the same spirit of adventure, courage and fortitude as they did in '49, for in the words of Tennyson, " 'Tis not too late to seek a newer world To strive, to seek. to find and not to yield."

This year, for the first time, a junior Red Cross Coun- cil was introduced in the senior high. It was established to further the ideals of the Red Cross, and to aid the younger generation to think, plan, and work together both at home and abroad. An unprecedented high was achieved in enrollment of students, gift boxes were shigped, and the VVater Safety program enlarged. In ad ition to these projects, the council laid the foundation for international art and correspondence exchanges. To make the fact that "all are brothers" a living reality in the minds and hearts of children throughout the world is the goal of the American Red Cross.

The Student Council represents the voice of the student body in our school. Throughout the year they work for student-faculty understanding, and promotion of enterprises designed to better school life. For example, the Hall Patrol, Homecoming Day, and ticket sales are among their activities for the past year. 1" vf H 952 5 Qi I ifQ . 1.1 5.5: sg. .Wi .Cf . " k ' lzjlgk' ' I my 2 SA Y' , Q . .

Dear Students, Despite the many notices and announcements on the bulletin board about overdue deadlines, the Annual Staff proved com- petent and met its deadline, and the book went to press early in March. Editing the yearbook were Helen, Marlene, and Nor- man, who pushed and prodded, but finally got the work in on time. Although Lon, Janie, Vynnette, Sherman, Joanne, and Juneal were appointed as class and feature editors, they wrote copy for everything. However, they are to be commended for the excellent class history, prophecy, and senior sayings. What a time we had withcfanis, Jeanette, Marcus, and Dave in order to get all the ads sol , but it was their persistent efforts which finally brought results. Our wonderful division pages were made possible through the artistic ideas of Mary Jo and Mary Wylie, who did the actual picture taking and developing. Larry Norby, our sopho- more photographer, came to our rescue late in February and took all of the remaining award and club pictures. And of course under photography we can't forget Mr. Lawrenson, who left after the first semester, but who very ably took all club pictures. Mr. Clarence Lee took our athletic pictures. Of course we can't forget Mary Jean, Darlene, and Evie who typed like mad each night. Little Duane and Dorothy had enough to keep them busy with their separate sports section. Poor Dorothy had a spell one week when she was trying to write copy under C.A.A.-Oh, what a task it was until M.J. helped her out. The valuable assistance received from our advisor, Miss Helen Steppe, will never be forgotten. Without her, our Annual would never have been finished. We hope we have given you a complete picture of the life of the '48-'49 students in Fergus High.
