To THE STAFF OF 1912 we are indebted for its pioneer spirit
in undertaking the difficult and entirely new task of
issuing a school yearbook-the first Dodger. Since then
the Dodger has become one of the high-lights in the school
life of every student. Distribution day is looked forward
to with interest and enthusiasm, the book is a possession to
be cherished forever.
Twenty-five years have passed since the first Fort Dodge
High School annual, and in that quarter of a century, the
shifting sands of time have brought changes to both the
school and to the annual itself. With the enrollment in-
creasing from 258 Cless than the number of graduating
seniors this yearj, to 1432, the demand for an enlarged
curriculum and for newer and more extensive organiza-
tions in place of the few select groups of 1912, has been
recognized. New courses, various clubs, musical and dra-
matic activities have originated in order that every student
in school may find a group interested in the same thing that
he is. XVith these innovations, there have also been notice-
able revisions of the Docfger. Today every inch of space
must be utilized. Old elaborate styles have been abandoned
for simplicity and completeness, the goal of our modern
Perhaps just as many, if not more changes will occur in
the Fort Dodge High School during the next twenty-five
years, but it is the sincere hope of the staff of 1936 that the
future students may never be deprived of the pleasure found
in the publication of their annual, the Dodger.
In appreciation of the spirit of the pioneers, with the
desire to emulate their initiative and perseverance, we
gratafully dedicate this silver anniversary edition to the
yearbook of 1912, the first Dodger, and its staff.

"Wu H1iR11xv1TH present the result of our labors, limited as they have been both by time
and finances. We have endeavored to record with accuracy the events of the High School
year past. And to publish n work as characteristic of the Fort Dodge High School as our
ability and talent has permitted. lf, in this, we have succeeded even in the slightest
degree, amply shall We feel rewarded."

"During the past season Fort Dodge
had one of the best football teams it has
had in many years. We met and defeated
some of the strongest teams in the state.
The season started out with two victories
at home over Eagle Grove and Iowa Falls,
both games played in a field of mudf,
"The basketball season was not so suc-
cessful as predicted at the beginning of
the year. This was not due so much to
the inability of the players, as to the in-
conveniences which they had to meet
when playing on strange floors. At home,
however, they won every game except the
one with the Sioux City team, state cham-
pions of last year.',
t'For a number of years the Fort Dodge
High School has shown much interest in
track work. Last season Fort Dodge at-
tended two meets at Des Moines, the first
was the Drake relay meet and the second
was the State High School meet and both
times we made a fairly good showing. At
the Boone Valley field meet held at
Algona we took second place, Hampton

IT IS ALWAYS interesting to find out what
fields of work have engaged the interests
of high school graduates of former years
and with this idea in mind a Dodger editor
made inquiries concerning the present
location of former Dodger editors-in-
chief from 1912-1936 and wrote to them.

The answers received by the staff from
the former editors were both interesting
and informational. Nearly all seemed to
agree that the most outstanding thing
they could remember about their job as
editor was the great amount of work in-
volved in the job and the great amount of
pleasure derived from that work. The
experience was one of lasting value to them
as it helped to develop a sense of responsi-
bility and ability to cooperate with others,
and, in some cases, pointed the way to a
future vocation. The greatest thrill came
to most editors when they held, for the
first time, the completed book. Accord-
ing to many replies, the most difficult
part varied from choosing a theme to
writing senior quotations.
Various are the present occupations of
the former editors. Many of the girls have
chosen marriage as their career. Ethel Bart,
1917, now married to Ben James, a suc-
cessful writer, who published his first
book in 1934, made a trip around the
world in 1928 and a Mediterranean cruise
during the summer of 1935 and is now a
teacher in a private school in New York
City. John Butler, 1912, is a lawyer in
New York City. Granger P. Mitchell,
1912, is editor of the Fort Dodge Messen-
ger and Chronicle. Annetta Schroeder-
Kraft, 1918, Eleanor Mulroney-McKen-
zie, 19193 Alice Schroeder-Wallace, 1920,
Freda Schneider-Larson, 1921, Margaret
Nordstrum - Aldershoff, 1921, Laura
Kolb-Wilson, 1924, and Elizabeth Arm-
strong-Olson, 1926, are all busy home-
makers. Ruth O'Neill, 1923, is now a
teacher in the Fort Dodge Junior High
School. Carolyn Rogers-Schultz, 1925, is
at present a secretary with the Standard
Oil Company in Chicago.
Kenneth Greene, 1927, is a traveling
interviewer for the National Reemploy-
ment Service, and William Mulroney,
1928, is credit manager for the Marso-
Rodenborn Manufacturing Company in
Fort Dodge. Willard Minkel, 1929, holds
a position in the business office of the
Southern California Telephone Company
in Los Angeles. Everett C. Blomgren,
1930, is news editor of the Courtland
County Press in Prairie du Chien, Wis-
consin. Janice Maher, 1933, and Betty
Burnquist, 1935, are college students,
Gertrude Frost, 1934, a stenographer.

of Fort Dodge I-Iigh School, through
the opportunity which the Dodger
gives me, a most cordial greeting.
It is my feeling that every member
of our school has aspired to the ideals
of quality, courtesy, and service,-
those charcteristics which go to make
up the "Dodger Spiritf'
Fort Dodge High School has
ranked for a good many years as one
of the leading high schools of the
state. To continue this ranking it is
up to us, faculty and students, to

ONE of the innovations directed by
Mr. Feelhaver was the series of teach-
ers' seminars which replaced former
teachers' meetings. Problems of in-
terest were presented by individual
teachers and by groups in panel dis-
cussions. In four meetings this year,
the question of assemblies was pre-
sented by Mr. Ralph Nichols, a
resume of the Leonard Report on
English Usage by Miss Adeline
Sharon, a report of the St. Louis con-
vention of the Department of Super-
intendence by Miss Mary McCluskey
accompanied by a panel discussion of
a practical guidance program by Mrs.
Clara Dean, Miss Wilma Hastie and
Mr. Norman Cooper.

INAUGURATED in 1933, D. R. A. activity
books found ready buyers again this year.
Under this plan each purchaser paid at
the rate of ten cents a week for a period
of thirty-six weeks, his paid-up stamp
book admitted him to all athletic events
including eight football games, twelve
basketball games, five wrestling meets,
swimming and track meets. In addition
he saw the All-school, Junior College, and
Senior Class plays, and the High
School-Junior College operetta. A
year's subscription to the I.iz'fIc'
Dodger and two outside auditorium
events, a Shakespearean production,
The Tanzing of fbc' Shrew, presented
by the Misner Players and a concert
by the Ames College Band were also
a part of the D. R. A. program.
With the Stamp plan, the student
paid less than one-fourth of the
regular cost of the entertainments
offered. Reservations were handled
by Student Council members.

Brick AND FoRTii, back and forth from
Study halls 101 and 102 the student libra-
rians trotted, finding reference books,
magazines, newspapers, and encyclopedias
for the need of each pupil. Their job was
not as easy as one might think. They gath-
ered up orders for books at the beginning
of each period, checked the books out of
the library, and returned them at the end
of the period. Since this system was started
about two years ago, the student librarians
have been appointed for the semester by
jing 4' fiffry-eitq bf
the study hall teachers. There was at least
one for each period, and in those periods
when study halls were especially crowded
two were required to serve busy students.
In the winter months when many
pupils in the building wanted a place to
read or study, Helen Martin presided be-
hind the library desk during the noon
hour. Her daily record showed that from
December 4 to April 17 a total of 2,770
students had made use of the noon-hour
for many talents
Goin in Popularity
SINQE 1933, clubs in the Fort Dodge High
School have been organized as hobby
groups. Qnly those groups which are most
in demand are established, on the other
hand, at the request of twenty prospective
members, charters are granted for any
worthwhile activity. From a question-
naire listing many choices of attractive
hobbies given to each student in the early
months of the school year, a probable
schedule of common-interest groups was
secured. After the results of these ques-
tionnaires were compiled, clubs were
formed and charters requested. A definite
contribution to school life is to be stated
in each charter, a copy of which is to be
filed in the high school office, and each
provides for the club a faculty adviser to
aid in its undertakings, and for a meeting
on Wednesday night, once a month, in the
high school building.
Last year's organizations whose charters
were renewed were French Club, Camera
Club, Intermediate and Senior Hi-Y's, Tn-
termediate and Senior Girl Reserves, and
Modest Maidens, renamed Tips to Teens.
New clubs chartered were Stamp Club,
Press Club, Home Craft Club, Girls Craft
Club, Society of Silent Scholars QChess
Clubj , Airplane Club, and Harmonica
Harmonica Club, advised by Mr. Wil-
liam Schwendemann, was organized early
in the first semester and then disbanded.
Later on during the second semester it was
revived and practices were resumed. Of-
ficers elected by the Harmonica Club were
James Duncan, president, Dwight Dick,
vice-president, Gordon Nelson, secretary-
treasurerg George Fellows, Student Coun-
cil representative. Club meetings were
held every Tuesday night after school.
Home Craft Club
Home Craft Club, which met every
Wednesday evening from four to five
o'clock in Mr. Lawson Hockey,s work
shop, had two objectives in mind, to make
worthy use of leisure time and to develop
hobbies. Officers elected by the Home
Craft Club were Everett Quade, presi-
dent, and Fred Davidson, secretary. This
and the Harmonica Club are not repre-
sented by pictures.
Advisers of the fourteen clubs were
faculty members whose own hobbies were
similar to those of the students who made
up the personnel. Many teachers had been
leaders of the same or similar clubs last
year. Advisers were Adeline Sharon, Mary
Boxwell, Fred Cooper, Doris Lumley, W.
M. Phares, Vivian Peterson, Wilma Hastie,
Mrs. Carrie Longfellow, Elizabeth Fry, H.
Lynn Bloxom, Norman Cooper, William
Schwendemann, and L. E. Hockey, as-
sisted by Dorothea Huntley, Paul Hick-
man, and Harry Gleim from the Y's.
Business meetings in each club were held
monthly with the exception of the Hi-Y,
which holds weekly meetings, and lnter-
mediate Girl Reserves, which meets twice
a month. Meetings for practices and for
special work were held whenever neces-
sary. All clubs were represented in the
Student Council. For the program of the
joint Club meeting, sponsored by the Girls
Craft Club on April 22, the Press Club
presented an original skitg Society of Silent
Scholars furnished a talk on the history of
chess, and Tips and Teens provided inter-
esting demonstrations. This new feature
of the Club year ended with a match pre-
sented by the recently organized Boxing
HIKES, Weiner roasts, parties, and assem-
blies made up the social life of the "Young-
er Brothersf' Led by Norman C. Cooper
and Paul Hickman they have learned to
"create, maintain, and extend throughout
the school and the community high ideals
of Christian character," through pro-
grams of varied nature, such as social, rec-
reational, educational, or devotional. Of-
ficers: Herbert Lefler, presidentg James

biss, secretary, Donald Jensen, treasurer.

XVHEN Robert Wasem, fall chairman, was
elected president, Kenneth Bastian, vice-
president, and Kathryn Cooley, secretary-
treasurer, the Student Council started its
thirteenth year of service. The Council
was a representative group, and members
were chosen in a different manner this
year. Eight from the Senior class, four
from the Junior, two from the Sopho-
more, one from the Freshman, and one
from each of the various clubs made up
the personnel of the Council.
A very successful innovation this win-
ter was the noon-hour program. Handled
entirely by students under the supervision
of Miss Holman, the activities included
motion pictures, group singing, amateur
programs, and one-act plays. Tickets were
sold for two cents or six for ten cents,
bringing in a little profit for the Project
committee. Because of the increased num-
ber of students eating lunches in the
building during the winter, these pro-
grams were well attended. The committee
in charge was Helen Oleson, chairman,
Doris Johnson, James Fowler, Jack Foley,
William Cadwell, and Agnes Stanek.
Established committees, Dance, Assem-
bly, Bulletin board, Locker room, Super-
vision of halls, Trophy case, Lighting,
Ushering, Auditorium inspection, Ath-
letic, and Parking regulated the activities
of the school.
Assembly committee planned a play,
"XVhat Never Dies", presented in Janu-
ary, another entertainment was given in
May, and they also sponsored the Honor
assembly for the first semester. The Dance
committee supervised three dances,-for
the football season, for Valentine's day,
and a spring dance. Carefully planned
decorations added to each occasion.
Public notices were kept in ship-shape
by the Bulletin board committee, the
Locker committee made daily inspections,
and send out cards to students whose lock-
ers were found open. Light keys were in
charge of the Lighting committee, and
Supervision of halls committee watched
that the corridors were kept in good order.
The new center case added to the task
of the Trophy case committee by making
a complete rearrangement necessary. Ush-
ering at public functions, inspection of
auditorium seats, and assisting in the gym-
nasium at games and meets were the jobs
assigned to the Ushering, Auditorium, and
Athletic committees. Red warning cards
were given out by the Parking committee.
The Finance committee functioned
whenever D. R. A. events were given,
making all reservations for stamp book
holders, and the Clerical committee typed
notices, plays, and bulletins.
Miss Dora Holman, Miss Vesta Likins,
and Mr. C. T. Feelhaver directed the
activities of the Council.

AN APPRECIATION of the finest in music
has been instilled in the hearts of the
orchestra members through the inspira-
tional leadership of Miss Lucile Corey.
Building on the foundation that Mrs.
Elizabeth Carmichael laid in 1913 with a
personnel of six, to 1926 with forty-nine,
Miss Corey has helped the students to
realize that music has something to offer
besides modern swing rhythm.
Every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday
morning harmonious sounds issued from
the auditorium filling the corridors with
music from the various masters. Among
the numbers practiced Cesar Franckis
"Symphony in D Minoru, the Russian
Folk melodies of "Andantino" by Tschai-
kowsky, the ethereal grandeur of Wag-
ner,s "Lohengrin',, the romantic "In the
Garden" from Goldmark's "Rustic Wed-
ding Symphonyn, and the modern har-
mony of Debussyls "First Arabesque"
proved most popular.
As a part of Show Shop, a drama club
organized in 1927, the Show Shop Orches-
tra was created for the sole purpose of
furnishing music for plays. Although the
club was discontinued in 193 3, the orches-
tra still exists, and as a reward for diligent
work in the High School Orchestra, indi-
viduals may be promoted to this group.
Show Shop Orchestra has played for all
school productions, the Community Plays
and for the Milk Fund Charity at the
A rather new feature is the addition of
Chamber Music groups. Of these, there
are two - High School Ensemble and
String Quartette. The Ensemble is com-
posed of eight student members and Miss
Corey, accompanist. Many local dinners
and teas were the setting for their efforts.
An innovation this year was the String
Quartette with four instruments, two
violins, a viola, and a cello. These musi-
cians, who have studied the works of
Tschaikowsky and Haydn, are coming to
be more in demand.

Wound and yltound
BECAUSE of the continued improvement
of the High School Concert Band, the
student body has looked forward to every
program. With an increase in popularity
the enthusiasm of the members has grown
and they have practiced diligently and
regularly every Wednesday and Friday
morning with J. Howard Orth, conduc-
tor. A better balance was made possible
by the introduction of two new instru-
ments, a bass clarinet and a glockenspiel.
An appreciated addition to the reper-
toire was "Stephen Foster's Melodiesn in-
strumentation books, arranged by Luis
Guzman, and presented to the organiza-
tion at Christmas time by the publishing
company. Honoring the anniversary of
the death of Stephen Collins Foster, the
Band, in a special assembly, presented a
program made up almost entirely of his
beloved Southern tunes. This same pro-
gram was later given for a P. T. A.
Besides this group, there are Inter-
mediate and Marching Bands. With the
inexperienced aspirants as members, the
Intermediate Band has increased in num-
ber and ability.
At the annual "music nightv just before
Christmas, the Intermediate and the High
School Bands combined gave an unusual
novelty program. In order to give the
pupils of Junior High some conception of
the high standards of the High School
Band, a concert was presented for their
enjoyment. Another outstanding pro-
gram was given when these young musi-
cians entertained the visitors at the North
Central Teachers Convention. One of the
biggest thrills of the season was the Radio
Broadcast from Ames when forty lucky
members participated in a half-hour
program, April 22. The following num-
bers were included:
"His Honorn March sr ,,,FiHl1701't'
"Pique Dame"- .,... , .,......... ..... V 011 Suppr
"William Tell Overture" ...,..rr.r..... .Rossini
"Stephen Foster's Melodies' .,., .,-.GIIZlIIdl1
"La Golondrinau .........r.......... -.Se1fw1de11
"Rule of the People" .,,..,..r...... .ROSEl7kVd77S
A special arrangement of "The Stars
and Stripes Forever" March, by John
Philip Sousa, was offered by the Concert
Band on several occasions. In this selec-
tion, a trombone sextette, a cornet sex-
tette, and two piccolos gave a front stage
performance with the Band accompani-
ment. Colorful uniforms, white trousers
and shirts with the blue capes and caps,
added to the smart appearance of the Band
in its public performances.
Marching Band kept "the old spirit"
alive between halves at all the football
games in rain, wind, or snow. Three eve-
nings of every week after school, as well
as in the morning, the members paraded
the streets and the football field. Karl
King gave an outstanding performance as
Drum Major and Baton Twirler.
Band and Orchestra were represented
in the Student Council by Lois Lyders
and Harlan Pfaff.

WITH his magic baton, J. Howard Orth,
lover of the best that music offers, pos-
sesses that uncanny ability to play upon
the voices of high school pupils as he
would a mighty organ and to produce
inimitable effects by careful tone-shad-
ing and spontaneous expression.
Meeting Mondays, Wednesdays, and
Fridays as a combined chorus with sep-
arate practices for boys Tuesdays and
girls Thursdays, unusual advancement was
shown this year by the third period Glee
Club in its a cappella presentations. F.
Melius Christianserfs Motet, "Celestial
Spring,', proved an inspiration.
Several outstanding performances were
given by the High School Glee Club this
year. The first important one was the
third annual "music night", the second,
caroling in the halls, one of the loveliest
of school traditions. At the Christmas
assembly it has long been the custom for
the Glee Club to sing several favorite
Christmas hymns, among them always the
lovely "Cantique de Noelf, This year the
program was unusually beautiful. Girl
Reserves and Hi-Y, combined, presented
Christmas scenes in tableau while Mr.
Cortright read the story, and the Glee
Club sang interpretive music from the
balcony. Concerts were given at Junior
High and for the North Central Teachers
Association. Singing at the Baccalaureate
and Commencement exercises is the final
program of the Glee Club. An unusual
feature of this yearls Glee Club perform-
ances Was the broadcast from the radio
station at Ames. The popular operetta,
'iRose of Algeria," was presented April 16
and 17. Student Council representatives
were Helen McTigue, and Jack Jensen.
The Christmas program was the climax
of numerous noon-hour practices for the
Big Chorus which included second, third
and fourth period Glee Clubs.

"Rose ojf lgerzirify
Colorful Come gy
l'RosE OF ALGERIA," musical novelty,
with its goat, camel, and colorful cos-
tumes, was the center of attraction on the
evenings of April 16 and 17. A compli-
cated plot, lively comedians, clever songs,
and bright music combined to make a suc-
Miss Bernadene Kenison coached the
dialogue, and Howard Orth, the music.
Show Shop Orchestra, directed by Miss
Lucile Corey accompanied the solos and
choruses. Unusual scenery and properties
made necessary by the Algerian setting
were designed by the Art classes and
Marian Maag Findlay, assisted by James
Lucas and H. Lynn Bloxom. The artists
who designed and painted the desert sands,
palms, Moorish walls, window and build-
ings were aided by Mr. E. S. Cortright and
the stage crew.
The story is very romantic. Traveling
incognito as Miriam, a dancing girl, the
Sultana Zoradie searched for the poet, El
Mokrani, whose poems had won her heart.
El Mokrani was merely a nom de plunzcf
for Captain de Lome, a soldier who de-
voted his leisure hours to poetry. In the
course of the play, De Lome and Miriam
met and fell in love, however, because of
her vow to marry no one but the author
of "Rose of the World,,' a song which
haunted her day and night, she remained
firm and would not be wooed.
The pompous Governor-General Petit-
pons, uncle of De Lome, was very much
disgusted with his nephew because of the
attention he was giving Miriam. But at
the same time, he found very interesting
a Dr. Millicent Madison, in charge of a
corps of attractive trained nurses from
America, hired for the sole purpose of
"encouraging courage." His unsuccessful
attempts to carry on an affair with her
without his nephew's knowledge led to
many ridiculous situations.
Upon her arrival in Algeria, Dr. Mad-
ison met her three old suitors, De Long
Green, Carroll Sweet, and Van Courtland
Park, who had intended uthat she marry
one of them and take the other two as
boarders." These three inseparables, de-
serters from the Foreign Legion, were
given disguises by the doctor. They were
discovered by De Lome and were about
to be sentenced to death when the Gov-
ernor-General hit upon the bright idea of
having one of them pose as the poet. When
the time arrived to make themselves
known to Zoradie, the three companions
found that it was "every man for him-
self," for the success of one meant the
death of the other two.
At the opportune moment, De Lome
rushed in, and after recovering from the
surprise of finding that Miriam and the
Sultana were one, he convinced her that
he was El Mokrani, and all ended happily.
The newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Billings
F. Cooings, furnished many laughs.

THE 1936 staff was exceedingly fortu-
nate in having the privilege of issuing the
twenty-fifth volume of the Dodger. This
not only gave a suitable subject for the
theme-the passing of time, suggested by
sun-dials, horoscopes, and stars-but also
offered possibilities for a new section,
Alumni, especially former Dodger editors.
Aiming to give a graphic portrayal of
the activity of every student in the Fort
Dodge High School, the staff devoted
every page of each section to the interests
of the whole student body rather than to
just those who had apparently "reached
the top" in some activity.
It took the editor and copy editors many
long hours to plan and to draw up the
dummy, and then later to count out by
spaces just how much copy was needed for
each page. While all this work was going
on, the photographers were scouting all
around the school for small group pictures
that could be taken with their smaller
cameras. With their postage-stamp size
camera they were able to take many clever
candid snapsnots of students and teachers.
The Faculty, Classes, and Alumni sec-
tions this year proved more work than
usual, although perhaps they proved to be
more fascinating. An interesting feature
in building the Alumni section was receiv-
ing the answers from twenty-two out of
the twenty-eight questionnaires sent to
former Dodger editors.
Since the activity section concerns the
school life for the whole year, compiling it
was a long job. Many pages had to be held
up until certain events occurred. Because
this section involved so many students, it
was usually a mad scramble to name all the
faces in the pictures before the panels were
sent to the engraver.
Due to the enlarged curriculum of
intramural sports and the increased num-
ber of participants, the athletic sections,
both boys and girls, took more time.
Perhaps the most interesting section of
all to compile was the Hi-Life. The entire
student body was asked to contribute in-
teresting pictures which were then made
up into unusual panels. These combined
with the school calendar gave a day-by-
day account of Fort Dodge High School's
The fact that seven out of the twelve
annuals which Miss Mary Cruikshank has
supervised have won All-American rat-
ings is ample proof of her ability to organ-
ize entirely new staffs every year and to
build outstanding books.
At the Iowa State Press Association con-
vention held at Grinnell, October 18 and
19, Fort Dodge High School was repre-
sented by Isabelle Hurst of the Junior
College section of the Dodger, Delbert
Williamson from the College Campus,
Helen McTigue, Paul Buegel Qwho gave
one of the discussion topic talks on pho-
tographyj, and James Fowler from the
Dodger, Betty Ahrens and Kathryn
Cooley from the Liifle Dodger, accom-
panied by Miss Doris Lumley.

STARTING with a staff as green in journal-
ism as the freshman just entering high
school, Miss Doris Lumley, herself a new
instructor in Fort Dodge High School, be-
gan the task of issuing the bi-monthly
school paper, the Liffle Dodger.
The gift issue, one presented to every
student on the first day of school, was
edited by Delbert Williamson, and adver-
tisements were solicited by Harlan Pfaff
and -lack Pontius, members of former
Liffle Dodger staffs.

FORENSIC activities were supervised by
that versatile individual, Mr. E. S. Cort-
right. I-Ie was head of both speech and
dramatic departments, coached all the
major productions of the year, and di-
rected the Stage Crew in making the scen-
ery and effects used for plays in the high
The goal of the Dramatic department
has been to widen its scope in order to give
a greater number of students opportun-
ities of appearing before the public.
Each year a class in the study of drama
is offered for the first semester in charge
of Mr. E. S. Cortright. Many fine points
of dramatic art, such as character acting,
makeup, and scenery are taught. Each
student writes a three-act play. The better
plays are produced by the class under the
direction of students.
One-Act Play Groups
In the second semester of 1933, One-
act Play Groups composed of Freshmen
and Sophomores were introduced. The
project proved very successful the first
year and soon many underclassmen were
taking part. Another activity which
helped to broaden the dramatic field was
Interpretive reading. Its growing popu-
larity was proved this year, as the high
school had fifteen entrants and Junior
One-act plays were in charge of Miss
Bernadene Kenison, Miss Elta Jansen and
Miss Dorothy Mahlum. Miss Kenison had
charge of the Interpretive Reading.
That this dramatic program has been
successful in attaining its goal can best be
shown by statistics gathered since its in-
troduction in 1933. In that year only S5
students appeared in dramatic parts before
the public, in 1933-34 this number had
risen to 106, in 1934-35 it had increased
to 213, and in 1935-36 it reached a total
The Speech department is divided into
three sections, debate and extemporaneous
speaking under the direction of Mr. Ralph
Nichols and original oratory, directed by
Miss Dorothy Mahlum since Miss Dorothy
A debate class, offered as an English
elective, is organized each semester under
the direction of Ralph Nichols. From the
first semester class Mr. Nichols usually
chooses a number of the better debaters
who participate in several skirmishes with
out of town teams, from this group he
selects his first team. If a student in the
second semester class wants to make the
team, he may enroll again the first semester
of the next year. There can be only one
credit earned in debate so those who
schedule for two or more semesters take
it as an extra curricular subject.
Because there were no outstanding de-
baters at the first of the year, competition
was very keen and everyone worked hard.
The close competition had a great deal to
do with the success of the year because no
one could be sure of his place on the first
team. After each practice skirmish, there
was always a chance for industrious
aspirants to secure a place higher up in
the debate squad.
Extemporaneous speaking was another
activity of the speech department. From
some fifteen contestants in a local school
meet Joe Wall was finally chosen to rep-
resent Fort Dodge in the District Contest.
Unfortunately, sickness prevented Joe
from taking part.
THI2 above pictures are representative of
the work of the one-act play groups.

DIRECTED by Mr. E. S. Cortright the first
major dramatic event of the school year,
the All-school Plays, were produced No-
vember 22, 1935. Four one-act plays
instead of one long play gave a better
opportunity for more of the aspiring
young actors and actresses to receive parts
in the casts.

Behind the stage one can always find
that hard-working group called the stage
crew. The success of any production rests
a great deal upon their ability to provide
the right lights, sound effects at the right
time, and appropriate settings. The stage
crew for this year consisted of James
Fowler, manager and chief electrician,

Argued to the
UPHOLDING an excellent reputation with
a group of green and inexperienced under-
studies on a question full of so many dif-
ferent angles as was the 1935-36 question:
Resolved that the several states should
enact legislation providing for a system of
complete medical care available to all per-
sons at public expense, was one big night-
mare for any coach. Mr. Ralph Nichols
finally selected his first team from some
eighteen mediocre but hardworking de-
baters. This quartet composed of Edith
Arkoff, Herbert Lefler on the affirma-
tive, and Barbara Hudson, Richard Mc-
Mahon on the negative, developed into a
surprisingly successful team. During the
year this team competed in five major
tournaments and won four of them. They
reached the semifinals in the Drake
tournament and won at Luther, The Big
Five, the State District and that most
coveted of all, the State Championship.
They also took part in twelve P.T.A. de-
bates and a number of other practice and
Lady Luck smiled on Mr. Nichols' team
this year. They entered the Northwest
District tournament hoping at best to
place in the semifinals and were amazed to
find themselves the winners, winning
seven out of eight of the debates. They
next turned their timid yet hopeful gaze
to the State Finals at Iowa City. The pessi-
mistic forecast by all was that there was
no team which Fort Dodge had any sure
chance to beating. But Lady Luck, aided
by Coach Nichols and grim determina-
tion, again turned her bright smile on the
team and they advanced slowly and stead-
ily into the finals. The first debate of the
finals was between the Fort Dodge Nega-
tive and the Affirmative from Abraham
Lincoln of Council Bluffs. A very close
debate, it was finally decided in favor of
Abraham Lincoln who won it by one
point in individual speaker ratings.
The last debate was between Fort Dodge
Affirmative and the Thomas Jefferson
Negative. In this debate, broadcast from
Iowa City, Fort Dodge came through to
win by a six-point margin. This left
Abraham Lincoln of Council Bluffs and
Fort Dodge in a tie for number of debates
won and lost. Thus the State Champion-
ship had to be decided by the team which
had the lowest speaker rankings. In the
final tally it was found that Fort Dodge
had actually won the State Championship
by a five-point individual speaker's mar-
gin. And so this group of inexperienced
young debaters brought back the first
State Championship won by Fort Dodge
in six years.
Individual awards were won by Edith
Arkoff who earned a scholarship at Luther
and a four-year scholarship at Iowa City
and also a speaking cup at the Big Five
Tourney at Rockwell City, Richard Mc-
Mahon won a cup at the Big Five Tourney
and a four-year scholarship to Iowa City.
By winning the Championships Fort
Dodge was entitled to another four-year
scholarship but was unable to accept it
because of the requirement that it be used
within eighteen months. The other two
members of the debate squad, Barbara
Hudson and Herbert Lefler, were sopho-
mores. Negotiations were made to have
it transferred to Harry Jensen of Abraham
Lincoln of Council Bluffs who was an
outstanding debater throughout the
tournament. However, these two young
people will have an excellent opportunity
to win similar awards next year.

Interpretive Reading again proved to
be one of the outstanding forensic activ-
ities ofthe year. Students got together fre-
quently and under the guidance of Miss
Bernadine Kenison practiced reading and
interpretation. Besides deriving a great
deal of enjoyment and reaping many
benefits, they often entertained various
clubs and organizations of the city and
surrounding communities. Members of
this yearls group were joe Wall, Rudolph
Hansen, Francis Wfigdahl, Don Hauser,
Margery Trauerman, Virginia Yost, Betty
Trauerman, Margaret Ann Smith.
Frank Marlow, the choice of the home
judges in original oratory, entered the
Northwest Iowa District Tournament,
where he won first honors against compe-
tition from Humboldt and Sioux City.
He next went to the State contest and
placed a close second. His subject was
"Tralee My Tzipw
WRI'I'TIZN by Nat N. Dorfman, "Take
My Tipf' which was chosen for this
year's Senior Play, involves the Merrill
family: Mrs. Merrill, the shrewd grand-
mother, Henry Merrill, her widower
son, who dabbled in the stock market,
and Betty Merrill, his attractive daugh-
ter. Other characters are Mollie, the
maid in the Merrill household, Mrs.
Mary Wells, a talkative widow neigh-
bor, John Rogers, president of Triplex
Oil and chief instigator of Henry's un-
fortunate dive into the market, Mrs.
Dolly Browning, a grass widow, Frank
Graves, a local attorney, Wilbur Smith,
manager of the Merrills, soap factory,
Amy Philip, secretary to the family, J.
Sutton, a New York lawyer, George
Harvey, president of the bank, and
Gilbert, with whom Betty elopes.
Lured by the prospect of becoming
one of thirty-six vice-presidents in the
Triplex Oil Company, promoted by
john Rogers, Henry invests heavily and
advises all his friends to do likewise.
He is shocked beyond all comprehension
when the market crashes.
Meanwhile, Betty and Gilbert elope,
return, and are welcomed into the
family. But Gilbert, feeling the urge
for easy money buys stock along with
Henry. Betty leaves him, but in the
end they are reconciled, Gilbert goes to
work in the soap factory-and every-
one lives happily ever after.

FRED N. COOPER
HEADED by Fred N. Cooper, director of
athletics, and Harold E. Theile, director
of physical education, the coaching staff,
completed by J. A. McKinstry, Ralph
Bastian, Fred Graham, Lawson E. Hockey,
and XVilliam Schwendemann continued
to aid the physical development of stu-
dents this year.
Coach Fred Cooper completed his thir-
teenth year as the Dodger sports director.
However, he disproved the theory of the
uthirteenu jinx by turning out two teams,
HAROLD IC. THEILIC
wrestling and football, that compared
favorably with the best in his career.
Through the efforts of Coach Cooper and
his assistants, the football team finished
with a .500 average, and his wrestling
team won the state championship.
Improved gymnastics and a new intra-
mural program were the achievement of
Harold E. Theile,s first year in Fort Dodge
High School. Interest in the individual
boy, a spirit of fairness, optimism and en-
thusiasm have characterized his work.
Tony Chzxiwluiilizis Lucille Stewart Mary Shirk Glen Grazier
PHYSICAL DIRECTOR Harold E. Theile
came to Fort Dodge full of ideas for a more
varied and more interesting course in
Physical Education. One of his first jobs
was to complete the files of the physical
records of all boys. When a boy enters high
school as a freshman, he is given a complete
physical examination. The results are
recorded in the files and each year as a new
examination is given, these results are com-
pared with the previous record. Thus a
year-by-year record is kept, and when he
is a Senior, he knows definitely how and
to what extent he has developed during his
high school career. If he attends Junior
College, these records are kept up to date
during those two years. Thus a six year
record of each boyis development is kept.
Physical education has changed from
the old system of calisthenics until today
it is a course in hygiene, recreational
activities, social contact and educational
study. Physical education is required by
the state law. Each student, unless excused
by a doctor's permit, must have four years
in Senior high school and two in Junior
Credit for physical education is based
on attendance, achievement, participation
in intra-mural programs and in athletics,
knowledge of physical requirements, atti-
tude and conduct, appearance, and clean-
liness. Health is graded on a similar basis.
Hygiene as it is applied to the health of
high school boys, and rules for the differ-
ent sports were taught by talks and lec-
tures, and later an examination was taken
over these points. All absences were made
up by written work or by participation
in the various intramural activities.
In Gymnasium classes the time was
spent on the floor playing volleyball, bas-
ketball, wrestling, tumbling, ping pong,
boxing, and in learning gym stunts. Dur-
ing warm weather the boys played touch
football, baseball, horseshoe, speed ball,
and soccer out-of-doors on the lot east of
During the class hour each boy had a
choice of several games. On one end of the
floor a basketball game was played, on the
opposite end the boys wrestled or tumbled
on the mats. On the sidelines some of the
boys boxed and others played ping pong.
While the class was outside a choice of
kittenball, soccer, speed ball or any of the
other games was offered.
The swimming program was in a like
manner enlarged. Classes were given some
free play periods, some periods of water
games and some instruction periods.
In the period of supervised water games
the boys played water polo and water
baseball. During instruction period they
were taught life saving and the different
forms of diving and swimming. After
weekly practices a test was given, covering
each six week's work. Beside the regular
class work, extra swimming periods were
offered to all boys who wished to take part.
At the start of each semester a class man-
ager was appointed. It was his duty to
keep valuables, check the gym equipment
in and out, and to assist Coach Theile.
These managers did not take part in reg-
ular class work, but were graded on the
way they did their job.
Through the year all forms of physical
instruction and a chance for physical
development were offered to all boys who
wished to take advantage of them.
Upper- Basketball held the popular interest throughout 'the
year, providing entertainment and competition,
Center A typical swimming class just before their dip in
Center Left- Kittenball was played both in and out of doors.
Lower Wrestling was indulged in by many of the students
throughout the year. Much interest was shown by the
For Emery Boy
To give every boy in high school an op-
portunity to take part in some organized
sport seemed to be the motto of the Ath-
letic Department this year as the first
intramural program got under way. With
Coach Harold E. Theile as director, bas-
ketball, wrestling, ping pong, boxing,
swimming, track, tennis, golf, horseshoes,
baseball, and softball were the events
scheduled. Traveling trophies, for eight
sports were purchased by the school and
awarded to the winning teams.
After the football season, organization
of intramural sports began and the winter
program was initiated December 3. Any
student enrolled in Fort Dodge high school
is eligible for intramural activity. Anyone
who has been awarded the varsity "F" is
not allowed to compete in the particular
sport in which he earned his letter.
The system used in choosing teams for
the new program proved unusually suc-
cessful. Each advisory group was repre-
sented by one or more teams. Study
Halls 101, 102, and 12 were divided into
three sections each because of their size.
The captains were elected by the players
Opening the schedule with basketball,
preliminary winners were given the
chance to participate in the finals. The
number of teams was gradually dimin-
ished until Room 102 B, by eliminating
Room 183 and Room 12, by eliminating
Room 10, were left for the final round.
A hard-fought battle was waged between
these two, the advantage see-sawing back
and forth. However, when the final gun
was sounded 102 B, led by Kent Damon,
was ahead by the close score of 25-24.
Wrestling practices were also held
early in the year. Eliminations were over
and championship berths filled. Honor
winners were the following:

Rooms 12 B and 207 tied for high
honors. Close on the heels of these be-
ginnings came swimming, ping pong,
and boxing, providing sport and amuse-
ment for all participants.
To Coach Harold Theile is due the
credit for the instigation of this new form
of competition. Participation in these
sports developed that indefinable some-
thing called "team play," and, indirectly,
tended to promote better health and
The main purpose of intramural ath-
letics, to provide clean, wholesome recre-
ation for students who spend most of
their time in the classroom or at the study
desk, has been achieved.

WITH Co-captains Charles Bickford and
Robert XVasem the only returning letter-
men from last year's well-seasoned squad,
Coach Fred Cooper and his assistants,
Ralph Bastian, J. A. McKinstry, Harold
E. Theile, and Lawson E. Hockey, faced
the task of preparing a football team to
play the toughest schedule Fort Dodge
gridders have ever encountered.
An inexperienced but determined
eleven opened the season by downing East
Sioux City on their own field, 13-0. Dur-
ing the second quarter Isaacson caught a
punt and raced behind perfect blocking
48 yards for a touchdown. Sioux City,s
aerial attack in the last half failed to net
them any scores. The following week in
a game featuring the sensational open
field running of Henry Jones, the Dodgers
romped over West Waterloo, 19-7.
Approximately 3,000 loyal spectators
watched the team take Waterloo in the
second half, after trailing 7-0 during the
first two quarters.
just when the prospects began to look
bright, Central Sioux City, led by Ken-
nedy, all-state halfback, left Fort Dodge
on the small end of a 25-0 score, the worst
defeat suffered in years.
Undaunted by the crushing defeat at
the hands of Central Sioux City the pre-
vious week, a re-inspired eleven chalked
up a 14-6 victory at Dubuque. Threat-
ening the Dodger goal-line by a series of
short passes, the opponents seemed des-
tined for a touchdown until Strom inter-
cepted a pass, galloped 60 yards, and
crossed the goal line.
Playing the next game at home, the
Red and Black team here dropped a 20-6
decision to East Waterloo. Wasem's flashy
but futile defensive play in this game
earned him a berth on Jack North's
weekly honor roll. Traveling to Boone for
the thirteenth battle for the gold horse-

a 6-0 victory. Late in the fourth quarter
Castagnolfs perfect blocking cleared the
path for the only score of the game.
Playing against Mason City's veteran
team built around nine returning letter-
men, Fort Dodge was unable to take the
Mohawks, who at the time were unde-
feated. Our hard-fighting outfit lost by
a 7-0 score. Meeting another undefeated
team, the Red and Black gridders dropped
their final game to Roosevelt of Des

With the 193
FACED with a tough schedule and dogged
by bad luck all season, Coach Ralph Bas-
tian's basketball crew finished a hard
fought season with but three victories out
of eighteen games.
One of the first disappointments came
when Kenneth Bastian, star of the 1935
squad which reached the district finals,
was eliminated from competition by the
nine semester ruling.
Coach Bastian had four lettermen back
from last year-Wasem, Brunnenkant,
Wiren, and Gordon. Besides these, the
squad was completed by the addition of
about fifty newcomers to the first team.
However, many of this number were elim-
inated until only twelve remained when
the season was well under way.
The regular schedule included fifteen
games, seven of which were played on the
home floor. During these carded contests,
the Dodger Cagers lost twice to Boone,
East and West Waterloo, Mason City, and
Wfebster City teams, once to Eldora, East
and Central Sioux City teams, and North
High of Des Moines.
Although only one game of the regular
schedule was actually won, the scores were
always close and the games themselves were
always well-played and hotly-contested to
Fort Dodgeis only victory came in the
Storm Lake game. Both teams battled
desperately, the Dodgers had
eroy. After winning from Laurens, 30-26,
and Newell, 34-17, in two well-played
games, the losing jinx returned in the final
game and the Fort Dodgers were forced
to yield to Humboldt 36-21.
coached by Fred Graham, the fresh-
man-sophomore team coordinated well
throughout the year in winning all but
four of their games. Captained by Jack
Jones, they showed possibilities and no
doubt will be of great aid in forming the
first squad next year.

STARTING the season with five lettermen,
the Fort Dodge wrestling team became a
well balanced outfit and climaxed a most
successful season by winning the state
With the return of twenty-five experi-
enced men and five lettermen, Macek,
Isaacson, Gargano, Castagnoli, and Strom,
practices started in the Junior High gym-
nasium on November 21. In addition to
the rigid fundamental workouts, road-
work of five miles a night was required
at the beginning of the year.
The Dodgers opened the season by win-
ning a hard fought match with Valley
Junction, 20-18. However, the following
duals proved easy, the team winning by
not less than 12 point margins from
Eldora, East Waterloo, West Wfaterloo,
Hammond, Qlndianaj, Mason City, and
The Hammond meet was one of the
most surprising of all. With a crew of
eight stars, the Indiana squad entered Fort
Dodge with a wide margin over the local
team. Since they were Indiana state cham-
pions and a runnerup in the Kentucky-
Indiana A.A.U. meet, the Hoosier outfit
was highly rated. However, when the
meet was finished, the Dodgers emerged
with a 252-7M victory. The Indiana
school had won but two matches.
In the Clarion meet came the lone set-
back, the grapplers losing by the close
score of 162-UK2. This meet was the
most exciting of the year. Although losing
in the lower weights, Isaacson's draw with
Morford, 135-pound state champion,
started a Dodger rally and a nip-and-tuck
battle ensued until the end of the meet
found Fort Dodge nosed out by the slim
margin of one point. Nevertheless, the
page om' fuzmlrml izuo
Dodgers made a brilliant come-back later
in the year and defeated this same team in
the District meet and again in the State.
Securing two firsts and four seconds,
the Dodgers ended their season by winning
the State meet. Honors went to Kuhn,
125-pounder, and Strom, heavyweight,
who walked off with first, Muhl, Macek,
Gargano, and Castagnoli, who placed sec-
ond in their respective classes.
Willis Kuhn became the most sensa-
tional matman this year by throwing the
six men with whom he competed. Muhl
also proved outstanding, winning all but
one of his dual-meet matches. Roger
Isaacson, one of the most promising mem-
bers, was eliminated from district and
state competition by illness.
With seven full-year lettermen return-
ing and two for the first semester the 1937
season promises to be equally successful.

DESPITE the advent of a new regime in the
coaching staff, the Fort Dodge tank men
proved a competent outfit. Although
placing first in but one of five meets, the
scores were never complete walk-aways.
Opening the season at North High in
Des Moines, the Dodgers met a 43-32 loss.
However, the following meet was almost
a reversal, for when the foam of the Roose-
velt pool in Des Moines had cleared away,
the Dodgers were found to be on the long
end of a 41-33 score.
Omaha Technical High School proved
to be the unconquerable foe of the splash-
ing crew,-three times the Dodgers bowed
page om' !J7lI7tfl'f't1 four
to the Omaha mermen. The first was at
the Tech's pool,-the Fort Dodge team
losing the CO11t6St 43-32. The next score
was closer, however, the Dodgers drop-
ping the contest 39-35.
Climaxing the yearis competition came
the Kempler Military meet. With the best
schools of four states entered, the Dodgers
surpassed all but Omaha to take a second.
The competition included teams of Tulsa,
Oklahoma, and Jefferson City, Missouri.
The mainstays of the year were Melvin
Allen, Paul Kersten, Bob Leighton, Ralph
Merris, and Dick Newsome. Of these,
Allen and Leighton return next year.

THE 193 6 tennis squad, coached by Ralph
Nichols and composed of Kent Damon,
Harlan Mills, Bert Ganoe, George Rich,
and Eldon Mills Qpictures abovej was
entered in six meets.
Wfinning three meets, tying one, and
losing one proved to be the record of the
1935 team. The Dodgers won over Boone,
Roosevelt of Des Moines, and Lincoln of
Des Moines, tied with Eagle Grove, and
lost to the Eagles once. The season was
closed by the state meet at Cedar Falls.
Although the team did not place, Coach
Ralph Nichols Won the Coaches' division.
COACH William Schvvendemann began his
golf-coaching career this year with a
squad of 19 newcomers. The schedule in-
cluded Ames, Rockwell City, Webster
City, Boone, Roosevelt of Des Moines,
and Eagle Grove.
The 1935 squad won four meets and
placed second in a triangular meet. The
team, made up of Don Johnson, Morris
Haskell, Ed Zemke, Clyde Baker, Charles
Simmons, Emerson Hovey, and Billy
Hoop, Worked Well together throughout
the year. The season was climaxed by win-
ning the Big Four meet at Mason City.

STARTING the season behind schedule, the
1935 Fort Dodge track team showed con-
sistent improvement and climaxed the
season by nosing out seventeen other
schools in the State District meet.
With eight lettermen of the 1934 sea-
son, the Dodgers began their campaign at
the Iowa City Indoor meet, and were
fortunate to get seventh place.
The next meet turned the tide much in
the opposite direction, the Dodgers plac-
ing first in the Stuart relays. Bob Coff-
man, the negro flash, carried off high
After taking a first place at Estherville,
losing to Eldora and placing fourth at
Fonda, the Fort Dodgers entered the Dis-
trict meet a much more experienced
The best performance of the season was
given in the District meet in Fort Dodge.
Spirit Lake and Fort Dodge were practi-
cally even when Cleve Foster won the half-
mile to give the Dodgers the victory. Dick
Cornell surprised the fans by breaking the
District pole vault record.
The team was off form for the State
meet at Iowa City and the best they could
do was to secure eighth place.
With the opening of the new Big Four
conference at Mason City the season
ended. The Dodgers were in the running
all day, but a poor performance in the field
events gave West Waterloo the lead by two
points. In the newly formed freshman-
sophomore division the Dodgers placed
second to West High of Waterloo.
One of the best mile relay teams in the
history of the school was produced, con-
sisting of Moeller, Wasem, Hill and Coff-
man. At the District Meet here on May
ll, another combination consisting of

M TSS FLORENCE NORDM AN
GIRLS ATHLETICS, which for a long time
was a minor feature ofthe extra curricular
activities of the high school, has been ex-
panded under the able guidance of Miss
Florence Nordman. The program now
includes volleyball, baseball, basketball,
swimming, tennis, hiking, life-saving, and
ping pong so that everyone, no matter
what her interests, can participate.
Each girl was required to take two hours
of physical education every week. Many
girls, however, spent every night after
school indulging in some sport and in this
way earned letters, which were awarded
according to a point system, so many
points for each activity entered. Addi-
tional credit was given to girls who won
events in the annual swimming meet.

UIUDGING from the mileage average of the girl hikers, the old
saying, 'tNever mind the Weatheru, was a true motto for the group, for
during the first semester, they journeyed seventy-five miles and planned
to finish seventy-five more by the end of the second semester. Three
teachers, Miss lone Helgason, Miss Elizabth Fry, and Miss LaRue Guern-
sey, helped to organize and acted as leaders of the group. ln bad weather
the girls went by sidewalk, but on pleasant days they took long trails which
wound through the woods. Favorite beats for the hikers were Oleson
Park and the route to Lutheran Hospital. Mileage was clocked by speed-
ometers so that each mile was recorded accurately. Thus a large number
of points for athletic letters were earned, for every hike was well attended
by both former and would-be letter girls. Twenty-five points are awarded
for hiking fifty miles with a group during any one semester.

THERE is always a group of girls interested in less taxing
sports such as ping pong, tennis, tether ball, and soccer. Miss Harriett
Demorest, supervisor of ping pong, organized a tournament from ad-
visory groups. Elimination in these classes led to contests between indi-
vidual representatives. Tether ball, while not a competitive game, affords
interesting entertainment for many girls and requires only two players,
activity centering around a six-foot pole, at the top of which a strong
cord is attached. Cn the opposite end of the cord, two feet above the
floor, is a sponge ball. The girls are equipped with paddles, a little larger
than ping pong paddles, and they proceed to hit the ball in opposite
directions, attempting to wind the cord around the pole.
Plans had been made for a soccer tournament this year, but because
of the short fall season such a tourney became impossible. Tennis, although
new in the athletic program, aroused the interest of many girls who con-
tested in individual matches to determine the group winner.

HFAIR AND XVARNIERU was always good news for the feminine
baseball players. Long before the weather man gave encouragement for
an outdoor game, the batters were practicing their swings and the pitch-
ers their curves on targets on the wall in the gymnasium. The baseball
group, organized last spring by Miss Mary McCluskey, played off both
intramural and inter-class tournaments. Cold weather, which came
especially early last fall, meant disappointment for the baseball fans.
Wfhen the first sunshine of spring came and the field east of the build-
ing was dry, the girls vacated the gymnasium for the "open fieldf' Physical
education classes playing baseball always find interested spectators in
those students leaning over the window sills and those craning their necks
from the class rooms. Cheers for a home run resound all over the building.

MANY girls desirous of becoming American Red Cross life-
savers began their difficult training early in the winter months. There
are two tests, junior and the Senior, the latter being for advanced swim-
mers. The water requirements for the tests are three methods of approach,
three methods of releasing the grip of the subject, and four methods of
carrying the subject. During the boys, swimming season when it was im-
possible for the girls to practice in the pool, the group met in the gym-
nasium to work on resuscitation. Recreational swimming on Friday nights
between four and five oiclock proved popular for beginners, for they
could go into the pool and practice whatever stroke or dive they wished
to improve. Preliminaries for the swimming meet began in the classes.
The winner in the class event entered the championship meet.

AFTER the volleyball tournaments, the following fall sport
IS basketball. Both two court and three court games are played, the
Juniors and Seniors playing on a two court floor. Student leaders who
were chosen to help organize the teams for the intramural tournament
were Helen Stahl, Dorothy Fleetwood, Marjorie Anderson, and Agnes
Stanek. They managed four Freshman, three Sophomore, two Junior,
two Senior, and one Junior College team. A second tournament, the inter-
class, was played between one Freshman and one Sophomore team, one
Junior, one Senior, and one Junior College team. Members of the Junior
College Women's Athletic Association were referees, with high school
girls as time-keepers.

LUNCH upon fl time 21 CHRISTIAN girl lived on n
HILL near 21 MARSH. Each BALMy day, sitting
on a MOSS-covered STUMP that was as
HARDQIEQ as 11 STONE, she combed her BLACK
HAIR. Her IRISH eyes spnrkledg she was as grace-
ful as Sl SNVAN, and was considered one of the
WONDERS of the WOODS.
In another part of the FOREST dwelt a man
known for his ability to BOXWELL, strong as
SAMPSON with his BROAD shoulders, but who
had Z1 BLUNT and RUDE manner when SHOW-
ERS raised the BROOKQEJ S.
One summer he started with two NICHOLS and
a FORD CARR, and Fl HORN that wouldn't work,
when Ll RABBITT ran ZICROSS the RHODEQSQ.
On this trip he met a SWEET, TRUSTY ANGEL
wearing n GREEN HOOD and BROWN SAN-
DELLS that WRIGHT away sent 21 PAYNE thru
his HART until he found she couldn't COOK
RICE, FRY LAMB chops, nor was she 21 BREWER
of COFFEE. She WZIS CROSS SUMMERS and
Cartoon from 1912 Dodger
WINDERS when FROST was in the HIGHLAND.
QUICKly he ROSE and Ieft for CLEVELAND
to become a STEWART on ll long KRUSE to Chinn
where he became a COOLEY and 3 PORTER. Next
he tried L1 FOX CHASE in the NORTH, then n
MILLER in the SUMNER MILLS, and finally Z1
FISHERman. On his ship's DECK he found a map
in 21 CANNON which led him to 21 HALL CHAM-
BER where on L1 SILL he found che key to oil
WELLS which made him RICH.
As a NEWMAN he hurried to the GOOD girl,
BELLe of the FOREST, and found her by the
REEDs Still Combing STRANDS of HAIR.
HASTIEfIyj they were married just as ll RAY of
sun came through a CLOUD. They were DAILEY
happy raising PEACOCKS, FOXes, PELICANS,
and CROWs in their ASH FOREST, until the
KING made L1 PILGRIMage to their HOLM and
with him took his SAVAGE LYONS who ate all
the animals and BURDS, and they had to then live
on the BURCI-Ibark and the GREEN BERRY.

My goodness, but live been having
some exciting times lately. September 3-
School started and I never realized High
School was so terribly large. I got lost four
times the first day, and twice the second.
4-Which reminds me, just because I'm
a prep, Ihad no assembly seat assigned and
so had an elevated position Cmy legsj when
the teachers gave their radio talks. 10-
We heard an excellent pianist besides a
lecture. 12-Talk about cruel treatment
-the teachers skipped out for a picnic at
Olson Park and left us at home to study.
13-If I hadn't been so superstitious I
might have tried out for cheerleading.
We all went to Mexico for a visit Clec-
turel but the food was terrible and the
weather was so hot we soon returned. 19-
the school got on fire so we hurried out.
Later I was told it was only a fire drill.
20-At our first pep assembly we gave
the boys a send-off to East Sioux City
where we won 13 to 0. 23-Monday we
filled in registration cards. 25-The
teachers demonstrated the proper way to
sing from the platform. 27-The whole
team paraded across the stage. We also
discovered the reason for Mrs. Dean's
coaching in study hall. At first it was
extremely cold, but the game became
so exciting that I kept very warm-we
won 10 to 7. 28-I bet the teachers at
Okoboji didn't go near the water.
R October 2-We heard a piano-
accordion player perform and then the
College Dean talked. 3-Sophomore girls
entertained the Freshmen girls at a party.
4-The Dodger mascot, King Kong,
helped the cheer leaders inspire enthusi-
asm. Central Sioux City won 13 to 12 in
spite of the mascot. 8-I got my picture
julgcf om' Z7IlI74ll't'lI flL't'llf-Y
taken with the rest of the Freshmen. 9-
There was a demonstration of colored
lights in dumbbells and an anniversary
Y. M. C. A. talk. 10-I heard that the
Civic class went to the Court House. 11-
No assembly but anyway we beat
Dubuque there 14 to 6. 15-Try-outs for
the all-school play started, but I was too
timid Qor lazyj to go. 16-Tests while
waiting for our grades to be put on our
cards-some of them weren't really worth
17-We had a General Mills Amateur
Hour sponsored by the Alfalfa Breakfast
Food Company. Several amateurs re-
ceived the gong and the unlucky announc-
er got into trouble by interrupting the
program so often, but for the most part
the performers were just grand. 18-The
pep assembly had a special number with
a pianist, saxaphone player, drummer,
and boy-vamp dressed as a girl. We lost
19 to 6 to East Wfaterloo. 24-We heard
a very interesting talk on "XVorld Reali-
tiesn by Rabbi Mannheimer. 25-The
Dodger Team won at Boone 6 to 0. There
were over 250 tickets sold here for that
exciting game. 30-An Honor Assembly,
demonstrating the various departments,
was given. It included everything from
typing typists to buggie bugs with Ro-
mans, Themes, Music, and Math. thrown
in. Hurrah! We were let out of school
Thursday at 3:30 because of Teachers

gg I'm writing to tell you what hap-
pened lately. November 4-At P.T.A.
our parents followed our schedule and
then realized why we are so worn out eve-
nings. 6-We had another splendid one-
act play assembly. 7-In honor of Mark
Twain we had an assembly. 8-Talk
about a grand pep assembly-Miss Fry
honored us with a solo and other teachers
performed. We lost to Roosevelt, 6 to 0,
in spite of the solo. Last year's Annual
received the All-American rating. 11-
Club pictures were taken so I'll have my
picture in twice now. 14-Wfe had an
intelligence test and the teachers wouldn,t
tell us what kind of grades we received.
The teachers went on a peanut hunt that
night-wonder if they found any? 15-
Did the faculty give a keen assembly! Miss
Boxwell, chairman, received a huge box of
flowers while trying to make her opening
speech. Then Mr. Fred Cooper sang sev-
eral selections, Mr. Nichols recited the
most thrilling poem, and Miss Corey
played a piano selection, and next came
a most dramatic play. I didn't know
teachers could act.
16-We had an all-school dance with
footballs everywhere. The debaters also
debated for the first time, no decision.
19-The food classes gave the annual
Football banquet for the team. The Teach-
ers Seminar met-I hope they didn't talk
about me. 22-We heard a real C-man
talk-I think that kind of a job would be
thrilling. That evening the four all-school
plays were given-I wish they had had the
scarey one first. 27-For a Thanksgiving
assembly a man, who was born and raised
in China talked. We were also given our
report cards-no Thanksgiving there.
page one bIl174fVl't1 fwrfzfy-fzL'o
Then four whole days of vacation and did
I have fun! 30-A few boys helped Santa
Claus with his parade.
,gli December 2-Back to school try-
ing to recover from that turkey. 3-I
enrolled for next semester-what a job!
6-We had a regular style show with boys
demonstrating the old and modern outfits
and explaining basketball technique. It
was an exciting game that night even if we
did lose by four points. 12-For an assem-
bly a woman talked on the Bible. 13-The
faculty had a party with their kids as
guests of honor-I bet they were spoiled
that night. 16-The big chorus and the
Glee Clubs gave a Music Night-they
really looked nice behind the angel's hair.
18-We beat Valley Junction in wrest-
ling. 19-Another one-act play assembly,
but I had to go to Geometry. We had a
the Christmas story. The scenes presented
by the Girl Reserves and Hi-Y were lovely,
and so was the music by the Glee Clubs in
the balcony. They sang old Christmas fa-
vorites. Everybody was so quiet and not a
single person laughed or talked which just
shows how impressive it really was. The
Glee Club sang carols through the hall-
too bad I can't sing and then I could have
gotten out of class too. Now for two
whole weeks of vacation-I donlt have to
go back to school till another year.

admiration and respect of all the people
of Fort Dodge, the townspeople as well as

with him during these two years have en-
joyed their work and have found his co-
operation and sympathetic understanding
unusual. The college is very unfortunate
in losing such a man as Dean Nielsen, and

in Speech Wor
JUNIOR College received a great many
honors in the field of speech during the
past year. The debating team tied for
the state championship with Burlington.
Lyle Julius, representing the college in
artistic reading, was ranked excellent in
the state contest, receiving the highest
rankings of any contestant. Ernest Ulm,
the winner of the local extemporaneous
speaking contest, placed second at the
Iowa City tournament. Winning the
state championship climaxed a very suc-
cessful season for the college debaters who
included Samuel Arkoff and Dorothy
Wurtzer on the affirmative team and
Ernest Ulm and Virginia Williams on the
negative, with IsaBelle Hurst as alternate.
The state tournament was not the only
one in which the college was victorious.
The Elkader tournament to which Eort
Dodge, cornell, and Luther colleges were
invited was also won by the college teams.
Samuel Arkoff and Ernest Ulm, debat-
ing on both sides of the question, carried
off the honors at the Waldorf tourna-
ment and brought back Eort Dodge's first
Junior College debate trophy.
Other colleges met during the past
year included Waukon, Morningside,
Western Union, Sioux Falls, Wartbtirg
and Eagle Grove. In the Iowa City tour-
nament, the local teams were composed
of Samuel Arkoff, Ernest Ulm, who de-
bated both sides of the question, and
Virginia Williams. Here the schools de-
bated were Eagle Grove, Muscatine, Ma-
quoketa and Waldorf, and Eagle Grove
won all these debates. The question for
these debates was "Resolved that Con-
gress should have the power by a two-
thirds vote to override decisions of the
Supreme Court declaring their acts un-
jmgi' one f7IH1llI'l'4f fbi1'fy-vigfif
constitutional." In addition to these
debates, a college team composed of
Evelyn Osmanson and Ernest Ulm par-
ticipated in a radio debate with Iowa
State College on the question "Resolved
that the Iowa Blue Laws should be re-
pealedf, The Fort Dodge team upheld
the affirmative side of the debate. Mr.
Ralph Nichols coached the debate teams.
The local artistic reading contest in
which about fifteen readers participated
was won by Lyle Julius, who read "The
Barrel Organ" by Alfred Noyes and a
portion of the play "Escape,' by John
Galsworthy. Miss Julius was given excel-
lent ranking by the forty judges at the
state tournament, thus receiving the
highest score of any contestant. In the
local contest Helen Evans was winner of
second place, with Betty Lou Evans plac-
ing third. The readers were trained by
Miss Bernadene Kenison.
Ernest Ulm, last year's winner of the
state extemporaneous speaking contest,
again won the local contest before the
college assembly. As college representa-
tive in the state this year Mr. Ulm placed
second. The topic for the speeches was
In the local Oratorical contest in which
about six members of the freshman
speech classes were entered, John Rhodes

In regular speech classes of the college,
the four branches mentioned above, as
well as others, such as short talks of various
kinds, dramatics, and "amateur hours,"

are selected for further training in the
special branches. Others who desire to
may take the specialized speaking also.

HSUGGIZSTION is a strange and dangerous
thing-so easily put in motion, so diffi-
cult to stopf, These words of Dr. Weth--
erell give a key to the tragedy of "Child-
ren of the Moon,U this year,s annual
,junior college dramatic production, for
suggestion, combined with hereditary in-
sanity, was responsible for many of the
events in this three-act play by Martin
Flavin. The drama, directed by li. S.
Cortright, was presented for the public
on March 18, and for the North Central
Iowa Teachers convention on March 20.
To prevent Jane from marrying Major
Bannister, who had been indirectly respon-
sible for the death of Jane's brother in
the War, Laura, jane's mother, tells Jane
that the Athertons are "moon mad,', and
that she too is mad. Jane denies her mad-
ness, but she isn,t sure, so she asks her
grandfather. Under his influence she sees
the Wonderful things he sees on the moon.
Then, Major Bannister, realizing that
she has lost her mind, decides to fly to the
moon with her, as she suggests.
John Casey, who had the part of Major
Bannister, played the young man's role
very well. His portrayal of the scene

Where Janels mother pries the secret of
her son's death from Major Bannister was
exceedingly well done.
ln the part of Jane was Jennie Vie
Anderson, who gave an excellent charac-
terization in her dramatic role.
Delbert Williamson had the part of
judge Atherton, who believed he talked
to the emperor of the moon. To this tense
and difficult role he gave a splendid inter-
pretation. The role of Madame Atherton,
his wife, was taken by lsaBelle Hurst,
who gave a convincing performance as
the gentle, understanding old lady who
could be remarkably strong when the
Betty Lou Evans portrayed Laura Ath-
erton, -jane's selfish and self-centered
mother. Under the spell of her skillful
acting the audience came to hate her,

CoAc:H J. A. McKinstry who has sole
charge of college basketball teams, has
always turned out fine teams. His good
nature has always been a source of inspira-
tion for the team, and his past record
proves his ability as a coach. In addition
to basketball, Coach Mcliinstry has
charge of the ends in college football.
During the years the football team has
been directed by Head Coach Fred N.
Cooper, no team has lost more than two
games per season, a very brilliant record.
Besides his very fine football record,
Coach Cooper handles the position of
Athletic Director with fine efficiency.
Assistant Coach Ralph Bastian was a
welcome help in tutoring the line this sea-

Early in the year the Student Council
selected three cheer leaders, Stanley
Richey, Dorothy Wfurtzer, and Ifvelyn
Osmanson. Later, Stanley was made head
cheerleader, and ,lack Larson was added
to the group. As was customary these
four able performers, under the direction
of Stanley, could be seen at the many
Fort Dodge Junior college football games
as well as later at basketball games.
They were clever in their selections of
right yells at the right time, and faithfully
they continued to greet each successful
play of the home team, with a rousing
cheer of enthusiasm. They will always be
remembered for their willingness to work,
for the loyal backing they gave the team,
and for their lusty shouting.

tory, they spoiled the Panthers' five year
record of remaining undefeated at home.

UNDER the guidance of Head Coach Fred
N. Cooper and Assistant Coaches I. A.
McKinstry and Ralph Bastian, and fac-
ing the toughest schedule in the history
of the school, the 1935 football team en-
joyed a very successful season, winning
six games, losing two, and tying one. The
Panthers tied with Waldorf, Mason City,
and Estherville for state honors.
The Blue and White compiled another
brilliant defensive record, although a
little hard luck did dim their hopes for
a while. The fellows earned 128 points,
compared with their collective oppo-

countered in engaging Junior colleges
the previous years, Coach Fred N. Cooper
engaged five four-year colleges includ-
ing Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Graceland
of Lamoni, York, of Nebraska, Trinity of
Sioux City, and the Buena Vista Reserves
of Storm Lake.
The Panthers first encountered Sioux
Falls, S. D., and after a hard fought battle
Sioux Falls emerged victor. Next the
squad journeyed to Lamoni and held
Graceland College to a scoreless tie. York,
Nebraska, with a strong eleven could not
halt the Panthers anymore. They had hit
their stride and could not be stopped.
They trounced York, 20-12. Albia was

were used to aid needy school children.

FOR the first time Junior College women
have been awarded letters in athletics. At
the first of the year a committee set up a
point system, and upon this basis about
twelve girls are expected to receive Fis. In
the fall soccer occupied their attention.
Next came basketball. A team, captained
by Barbara Theisen, entered in two tour-
naments with the high school juniors and
seniors, the college team placing third.
Two volleyball teams, with Dorothy
Wurtzer and IsaBelle Hurst as captains,
page om' lrzzmlrml forfj'-six
played for two victories out of three. The
ping pong tournament was delayed, so
that the winner has not been decided from
among the fifteen contestants. At the
conclusion of these two sports, baseball
took their attention. Approximately
twenty girls started at the beginning of
the season, and with these players the
junior college expects to form a team and
compete in tournaments with the high
school teams. During the year swimming
was another sport.
