There is no death! The stars go down
To rise upon some other shore,
And bright in heaven's jeweled crown
They shine foreverrnore.
There is no death! The leaves may fall,
The flowers may fade and pass away-
They only wait, through wintry hours,
The coming of the May.
And ever near us, thouqh unseen,
The dear immortal spirits tread:
For all the boundless universe
Is life'-there are no deadl

PRINCIPAL FLATHEAD COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL
SUPERINTENDENT KALISPELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
MR. FLGTTMAIWS MESSAGE
IBELIEVE THE MEMBERS OF THE CLASS
OF l947: WILL avoid mental atrophy.
WILL continue to read cmd study worth-
WILL keep informed about local, state,
national and international affairs and will
take their responsibilities of citizenship ser-
WILL always distinguish between values.
WILL recognize intelligence and knowledge
of vastly more worth than wealth and fine
clothes. WILL recognize that service render-
ed society is the true measure of success,
and will place statesmen, scientists, relig-
ious leaders and teachers upon higher ped-
estals of esteem than baseball stars and
movie actors. WILL look upon a job that
needs to be done as being more important
than attendance at a house party or football
WILL direct their lives with fine principles,
ideals and moral convictions.
And WILL think of life in terms of human
needs and service to others, realizing that
one cannot live selfishly and really succeed.
MR. WOLLIN'S MESSAGE
Without a doubt education holds the most
important place and the most conspicuous
spot in the world today. The demand for
leadership has never been greater than at
the present time with straight thinking and
courageous hearts more than ever in de-
We, in Flathead County High School
have not only a wonderful opportunity, but
a great responsibility in helping to shape
the future of education in this community.
Even though there might be temporary set-
backs, may we, as students and members
of the faculty, never lose sight of the goals
that have been set, nor cease in our efforts
to put them across. May the fine spirit of
enthusiasm that has been manifest through-
out the year, and the splendid spirit of co-
operation exhibited in all our endeavors
carry us forward to bigger and better
We salute the Class of 1947.

The Concert Band of 1946-1947 has shown
much improvement over bands of previous
years in technical proficiency, intonation,
and in interpretive fineness. Three' concerts
were offered for the school and the public
and all were received with much enthusi-
asm by the students and people of Kal-
ispell. These proqrams were varied and
included symphonic works, sparkling semi-
classics, peppy marches, popular numbers,
and boogie Woogie.
Much of the band's excellence is credited
to its director, Mr. Beckstrand, who has
offered individual practice and lessons to
each band member. The band practices the
third period as a unit with the soloists and
ensemble members practicing during avail-
able hours or after school.

The Braves started out the season with
a returning squad of lettermen. The first
game saw the Braves up against the Libby
Terriers who, sparked by "Buck" Nelson
and Adamson ran the ends and passed
their way to a 20 to 0 victory over the help-
less Braves. The Braves showed lack of
experience and lack of confidence as the
Libby boys stopped the Braves on play
after play. Outstanding for the Braves were
Kevin Iohnson in the backfield ancl Ray
Arnold in the line.
Next the Braves traveled to the smelter
city of Anaconda to play the Class AA
Copperheads in a non-conference game. On
the first play of the game Rogers, Copper-
head fullback, took the ball on a quick
opening play from the T and streaked 55
yards to pay dirt. After that the Braves
settled down and played a brand of ball
that was outstanding and gave the Copper:
heads a bad time until the superior weight
of the Copperheads took its toll and they
pushed another touchdown over the tired
Playing their second home game the
Braves ran up against the Class A cham-
pions of the year before, the Butte Central
Maroons. The Maroons showed the kind of
football that won them the championship
the year before and pushed the Braves into
the turf 33-O. McCaughy was the flash of
the Maroons, operating from the quarter-
back spot in the T, he engineered all of the
Maroons' touchdowns with superb block-
ing from the line. In the line it was Ray
Arnold who kept the Braves from falling
apart in the final minutes of the game when
the Maroons threatened to score again,
while Thompson and K. Iohnson were ef-
fective in the backfield.
Going to Bozeman for the second confer-
ence game the Braves encountered a rain-
soaked field. Both teams were about evenly
-.-.....-.Butte Central 33
matched. In the first half there were six
men of the Hawks' team taken out of the
game for injuries. The Hawks threatened
in the second quarter but were stopped on
the two-yard line by the two guards, Swen-
nes and Carruthers. The Braves plunged
down the field on many occasions but were
stopped near! the goal line by the deter-
mined Hawks. The final score was O-O.
After the good game played at Bozeman
the Braves were decisively beaten by the
Livingston Rangers 31-U. The Braves dis-
played none of the spirit shown in previous
games and were unable to stop the Rangers
or even to make any headway against
them. Arnold played a splendid game at
tackle, holding the Rangers in check.
The Braves then traveled to Havre for
their fourth and final conference game with
the Blue Ponies. The Blue Ponies scored at
will on the Braves and had their second
string in most of the second half. Only
Iuniors made the trip to Havre.
Entertaining the Class AA Missoula Spar-
tans on our own field the next week the
Braves looked fairly good but were unable
to keep up with this year's State champions
as they romped away to a 33-O decision
over the battered Braves.
Traveling north to the Division City the
Braves downed the Whitefish Bulldogs 12
to O. lt was the first win of the season for
the Braves. They held the Bulldogs to a
mere 13 yards to their own 145 yards. The
Bulldogs are a Class B school.
For their last game of the season the
Braves took on the Helena Bengals, and
played their best game of the season even
though going down in defeat 25 to 6. It was
the last game for Arnold, Bolton, Burnell,
Daley, Enger, Handford, Hamilton, Bullman,
Turner, Swennes, and Fry.

The reserve football squad emerged vic-
torious in two contests with Columbia Falls
by 6 to U and 12 to 6 scores. When Flathead
played Havre, the varsity was composed
mainly of reserves. Although Havre won 45

The Braves started the season with seven straight victories and then ran into
trouble on the road. At home they lost only to Missoula and Anaconda tnon-conference1
in close games during the season. However, losses ,on foreign floors brought the
Braves' conference standing down to eleventh position with four wins against eight
losses and an overall season record of twelve wins and ten defeats. The climax of
regular season play came when Flathead knocked Havre out of the top rung of the
Big 16 by coming from behind to defeat the Blue Ponies 26 to 25.
In their annual 4-game series with Whitefish, Flathead emerged as the superior
team over their traditional rivals. The Braves won the first three games easily by
20 point margins: then played a listless ball to drop the final game to the fighting
Bulldogs 39 to 36 at Whitefish. "
In a three-game series with Anaconda, the Braves dumped the Copperheads in
the second conference tilt 51 to 44, thus gaining revenge for an earlier 45 to 34 loss
at Anaconda. The final non-conference game went to Anaconda 39 to 37 when a
second half Flathead rally fell short.
The Braves entered the Northwestern Divisional tournament as favorites for seventh
place in the division. In their opener they were defeated by three points-31 to 34-in
an overtime contest. This game was one of the most closely contested games of the
After their loss to Havre, the Braves faced the Lewistown Eagles and defeated
them soundly in what proved to be the Braves' best game of the season. The plays
worked and a fast break was splendid. Kevin Iohnson was high for the game with
13 points: score-Flathead 48 Lewistown 30.
For their Saturday morning tussel the Braves turned up one of their worst games
and Butte Central soundly trounced them. The score was-53 to 24-to place Flathead
fifth in the division: Helena came next: then Glasgow: and finally Lewistown.
Prospects for strong varsity basketball squads to come were in view as the
reserves finished their season's schedule with a record of ten wins against eight
defeats. The Papooses were composed of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who
concentrated on learning fundamentals and gaining experience. Bigfork, Whitefish B,
Butte B, and Anaconda B teams fell victims to the Baby Braves' hatchet. Al Pierce,
the squad's high scorer, Fuzzy Fine, freshman center, George Duffy, and lim Clark
loomed as future Flathead stars. Bob Neitzlinq earned a spot on the varsity before
the season was over. Fred Greitl coached the Reserves.

The Iunior Reserves basketball squad was organized for the first time this year
with the object of building material for future teams.
The Iunior Reserves were composed mainly of freshmen plus a few sophomores.
They were taught fundamentals and participated in several games. They defeated
Central twice, Somers, Columbia Falls reserves, and Libby reserves for a perfect
record. Several members, Keim, Mercord, Phillips, and Sather, were moved to the
Reserves during the season. Mr. Otto Gilbertson coached the Iunior Reserves.

ln Flathead's second year of baseball 52 hopefuls turned out for the initial prac-
tice and after two weeks of drill work on fundamentals the squad was divided into
four teams. Some of the '46 veterans returning were Charles Houston, Kevin Iohnson,
Willard Thompson, Iim Clark, Bill Winter, Dale Enger, Willard Croskrey, Bob Pettit,
Bill Smithers, and Verel Overton.
Class A and AA schools were contacted relative to scheduling of games as well
as the Montana University Frosh.
Stress on fundamentals has been great with an eye for league play on Legion
and City League teams during the summer months.
- Last year was Flathead's first year of high school baseball. Practice was started
loo late in the spring to schedule games with other class A high schools except Butte,
The game with Butte High School was cancelled due to a late snowfall. The baseball
team bought new suits and equipment. Three games were played with Columbia
Falls High School and Flathead won two of these and they also defeated the local
F. P. A. team.
C. Winston Borgen is the coach for the baseball teams.

and broad jump: Warren Anderson in the hurdles and dashes: Lawrence johnson in
the hurdles and broad jump: Everett Brink in the quarter and half mile events: Howard
Daley in the mile and half mile runs: Buck Swennes in the shot put, pole vault, and

Of these 'seven veterans four earned their letters in their junior year: Bullman
and Swennes, in their sophomore years and lim Hutcheson, a sophomore, earned
his first letter in his freshman year.
These boys, with the aid of the three members of the class of '46, won three of
their five meets last spring. The Whitefish dual was a sweeping victory t6l to 19? for
the Braves. The Polson triangular with Libby was a bit closer with Libby crowding
the Braves C64 to 617 but the tepee towners still won. The district meet was won by
lhe Braves over Libby by one point. K6l to 605. Bob l-lashagen was named manager for

With the theme "White Christmas" the
annual Senior Ball climaxed the social
events of the year. It was held on December
21, at the Odd Fellows' Hall. The ball, in
honor of the alumni, was attended by a
large number of veterans and graduates
home for the holidays from different col-
leges and universities.
The grand march, to "White Christmas,"
was led by senior class president, Bob
Bullman, and Barbara Olmstead. Tracy
Iohnson and his orchestra supplied the
music for the holdiday minded guests.
Wreaths, snow, and a beautifully lighted
Christmas tree carried out the theme. Larry
Blake, a rotund Santa Claus, handed out
The entertainment was furnished by Bill
Carr and Ierry Baldwin, home from the
university at Missoula, and the Moore girls.
Sponsors of the ball were Miss Dorothy
Schoknecht and Mr. Tom Richardson, class
advisers: and the parents of committee
chairmen and class officers.
Robert Louis Stevenson's poem, "The
Lamplighterf' was dramatized as a dusky
figure trudged from lamp to lamp to light
each as a prelude to the annual Iunior
As he finished his task the background
music of "The Old Lamplighteru became
louder and the setting Was complete for the
beginning of the lunior Prom of 1947. Cou-
ples then formed for the grand march led
by Bob Pettit and Colleen Olson.
As couples danced through the flower
covered arch, relaxed on the park benches,
or strolled along the picket fences by the
light of the lanterns, the l. O. O. F. hall on
April 19th indeed depicted a scene from
"The Old Lamplighterf' '
The evening's pleasure was enhanced by
the program which consisted of Dean
Keith's piano selections, Pat Knowles'
dancing, and Paul l..awrence's singing.
Pat Hunzicker was chairman of the dec-
oration committee. Miss Lonita Kurtz and
Mr. F. E. Wilson are class sponsors.
The first annual Arrow Ball was held in November in the high school gymnasium.
Thanksgiving was the theme for this gala event.
The grand march was led by Vera I-leitmeyer and her escort, Ray Barnes, and
Shirley Morton and her escort, Al Pierce.

provided by Paul Lawrence with three vocal numbers, pupils of The Webster School
of Dancing, and Ioan Baldwin, who presented a dance number.
Alumni, faculty members, and their wives were guests of the evening.
CARNIVAL AND lFlES'lFllVAlL
The Coronation of Gwen Shaw, junior,
as Festival Queen, officially opened the
high school carnival and festival and cli-
maxed the two days of the Northwest Mon-
tana Youth Fair. The Queen was attended
by Barbara Bangeman, senior, Ivy Mc-
Nulty, sophomore, and Carla Herzog, of the
The mammoth parade consisted of bands
from Flathead, Kalispell grade schools,
Polson, and Whitefish, and a galaxy of
cleverly decorated floats from high school
organizations, Kalispell business houses, the
Grange and 4-H groups of Flathead County.
The seniors presented a well conceived
motif, "The Seniors Have the World by
the Tail" for their float.
The seniors won first prize on their gaily
decorated game booth. Their theme was
Hawaiian. The Whitefish booth placed sec-
ond, and the Ushers, third.

As the leaves were falling from the
trees and lndian summer was approach-
ing, the wigwam doors opened and the
papooses journeyed out to the council fires
of higher learning. At first our steps were
faltering and hesitant, but as We learned
to read the trail signs we became more
We were greeted by Bob Ripley, Big
Chief of the Flathead tribe, who impressed
upon us the magnitude of the task ahead
-to get through the forest of learning. Mr.
Vlfollin, our principal, was also new to the
tribe, but the trail markings were more
familiar to him.
We papooses were properly awed. We
elected Wallace Fournier president: Law-
rence tlinxl Iohnson, vice president: and
Louise Franz, secretary-treasurer. Squaw
Dorothy Schoknecht and Buck Tom Richard-
son were counselors of the clan for our
four years. They gave us invaluable aid
and kept us upon the beaten track.
One of the first hunting expeditions un-
dertaken was up Old Baldy where the
papooses gave the "F" a new coat of war
paint. It was a long trek for those unused
to trails, and the war whoops of those who
rested upon a bee's nest resounded through
the hills. Bees' arrows are sharp.
There was a great pow-wow at the fair
grounds, the second annual Youth Fair, in
which ,the fast riding papooses took part.
All in all it was quite a stampede and the
school garnered a sizeable wad of Wam-
pum. Pauline Trankel, our fairest maiden,
was lady in waiting to the queen.
The Pep 'n F club was organized to pro-
mote school pep. Wallace Fournier, Pat
Damon, Pat Barrow, and Lawrence Iohn-
son of the class of '47, lent the organiza-
tion their vim, vigor and vitality.
The little chieftains, the Sophs, gave us
a hard-time party and entertained us royal-
ly. We were properly initiated into lodge
lile. We later gave them a return party.
Though young we fast learned the Ways
of the tribe. Those whose names were often
seen on the roll of the Wise ones were

and trapped their men for the day. The
arrows from the quiver of Cupid struck
hard. The girls' pocketbooks were struck
too. They didn't know that boys had such
We showed our talent in an assembly
on St. Patrick's day. Though papooses, we
had plenty to show. We were far from
being on the short side of talent. Arnie
Carruthers played and has been playing
the piano ever since in his own inimitable
Way in high school functions and dance
orchestras. Hawaiian trained soprano Mona
Ioy thrilled all with her lovely voice. Mona
had been in the islands when the laps at-
tacked Pearl Harbor.

of school to attend the theatre and really
appreciated seeing such shows as "Casa-

Warren Anderson became one of the
classy dressers of the German Band, while

Bob Zanon, from the village of Somers,
counted coup at the end of his first year
at Flathead by getting on the varsity bas-
ketball team in time for the tournament.
The cast of "Iune Mad," the all school
play, included Bill Vincent, Marjorie Iohn-
son, Louise Franz and Elwin Price. Crew
members were Evelyn Dunham, Orville
Anderson, Vera Heitmeyer, Ioan Dickson,
Dolores Kent and Patti Buck.
The bright morning star of the upper-
classmen was gradually dimming as we
once again entered the Pied Rock House.
Signs of dawn were breaking and We seem-

had passed since we first entered the house.

Everett Brink, Charles Houston, and

were no more war dances and the number
of our friends in war paint was decreasing.
However, there were friends of ours who
had gone to the Happy Hunting Grounds

The discovery of the atom bomb that led

controlled the Wampum.
