We as students suddenly realize what a fine job you, the teachers, have done in preparing us for responsi- bilities in the homes and commun- ities of years ahead, as Well as for the immediate present. So, in ap- preciation, we would like to say a simple "Thank Youv. O -30.. xNl ll ' A .run www.-,mw.q,, KV SCHOOL BOARD To I'l105t students the School Board is a vague organization. It is this group of men who formu- late the school policies which are passed on to the students in prac- tical application. SUPERINTENDENT Your future begins today and everyday. While we cannot overlook the present, High School and junior College students have too much of life ahead to let the war crowd out all plans for the future. just as illness sometimes helps us to appreciate health, so the trials of war should urge us to work out a more secure future. Someone else may be responsible for this war, but your future will be largely what you make it. '5 . H A IJ X LfLfQ,,L,g,t,u4j "Chiefs Nlr. John Mitehell, Mr. S. L. lkiekul, Mr. H. J.

Be encouraged, for the future has a lot of promise for you, especially if those who are fighting this war do a better job than we did in the last one. If they do this war up right and get the right kind of a peace this time-you will really have a bright future.

Now we can see the light, and the outlook is Allied victory. Before another year rolls around we may be through with the horrors of the last three years of war. We then will be confronted with the almost as serious job of readjustment. The way will not be smooth, nevertheless it is hoped that the young people will support actively and with enthusiasm the American way of Life for which we have so recently paid the price of life. Many thought enough of democracy to die for it. Will you think enough of it to work for it? Remember, Dodgers, "It is not how fast we go but the direction we takef' 625172 "FIELD HEADQUARTERS" The superintendent,s o f f i C e staff do more of the general work connected with all the schools rather than high school alone. Mrs. Rutledge handles the school board correspondence. Mr. Wllll.ll11S, secretary, Mil- dred Gustafson, replaced Mar- garet Oleson when the latter got married. Both are helped by Madalyn Lund. This is one of the busiest places in the building. Wlienevei' in- formation is wanted, the office always gets the work. Every day offers a variety of problems for Mrs. Buegel and Eltha Gross whose friendly smiles are always on display. They do everything from shorthand to filing, and have the help of a switchboard girl each hour who volunteers from study hull. UCGMMAND POSTU MISS BERNIFE HERNATZ Mnthvmativs poppy ILA.

Perhaps one of the "major courses" we should take is that of participation in extracurricular activities where the emphasis is upon doing. From our student organizations We derive ex- perience both in leadership and in "folloWership," which will bring to the present hour and to the future, intelligent and warmhearted living. O H54, "l-hzlzeulualinq the Positive" One of the extra things that add enjoyment to your school years is belonging to one of the various clubs. This year as before, there were several clubs offered for membership. A few of the clubs were for the language students, and many of the others were open to membership by everyone. Something new was added in the spring for the science enthusiasts in the formation of a Science Club under the direction of Mr. Templin. Belonging to a club enriches your school life, so take a tip from the seniors, join your clubs, because the clubs are for YOU ! ! SPUH Under the expert supervision of Miss Boxwell the Latin Club enjoyed many meetings during the past year. These were held every two weeks during the class period. The first semester there was both a Junior and a Senior chapter and they were combined later to form a joint club under the leadership of Seymour Spilka, Primus Consulg Bob Banwell, Secundus Consulg Tessie Pappas, Secretarious, and Dick Sandahl, Quaestor. -56- Iieslas Sin Siestas 99" ...M Starting off this year with a new title, the second year Spanish students formed their club which meets once a month during the class period. One of the year's standout events was the Christmas party to which the members could invite guests. Witli Mrs. Long- fellow as the able sponsor the year's officers were Dick Stephan, El Presidenteg John Fieseler and Shirley Rule, Los Vicepresidcntesg Ar- line Estlund, La Secretaria, and Bill Beers, El Tesorero. The programs offered pleasing variety with informational talks and Spanish songs. Uniting for the Fete de Noel Christmas party and a picnic in the spring, the two chapters of the Sans Souci, French Club, had a very successful year. The clubs are made up of members of first and second year French classes and meet once a month during the class period. Highlights of their varied programs this year included plays, contests, folk dancing, and French songs. Under the capable leadership of Mrs. Longfellow the presiding officer for the first chapter was Martha Mitchell, and in the second chapter Tessie Pappas and Robert Manning. Sans Sunni CTC S E .1 E "Easy, easy now," "hurry with that partition,', "where,s the paint brush?" might be some of the familiar expres- sions you might hear if you were back stage with the stage crew. This ambitious group erects the scenery for the plays and operetta, but more than that, they build the scenery too, in extra Saturday and evening work, and when everyone else is through they have the anti-climactic job of taking the scenery down. Timber! One of the most important but unpubllcized jobs in school is the work of the librarians. These are the girls who volunteer to help straighten up the books, keep them in order, and aid the students who need help in getting their material. Each period finds one or two girls helping Miss Young keep peace in the library. 4 ei gi. llluiei, Please! t Friendship ami Service li ll nt Nancy l'ili'hei': Vim- I're-snlf-nt, Lou Constantine: Sevretary.

Energetic and willing describe best the Girl Reserves as they carried out their varied activities during the past year. Meetings were held one evening a month and at several of these meetings work was done on Red Cross projects. The year was begun with the traditional "Gypsy Pat- teranf' highlighted by the presence of Dr. Carl S. Winters. Following this assembly conferences with Dr. Winters were held during several periods of the day. To end the Friendship Week the students enjoyed a "Frontier Frolic" and the whole student body could be seen clad in blue jeans and plaid shirtsg then during the sixth period there was a gala hour of square dancing. .l1iw h . , ,e1....y 1 N we-L+ sw -59- Hnvernmenl hy the Students Martha Pray, President Kenneth Carlson. Vice Presizlr-nt Betty King, Secretary With the bang of the gavel and the familiar phrase, "the meeting will please come to order,' the Student Council started off on another suc- cessful year. The first semester elections ended with Martha Jo Pray, president, Kenny Carlson, vice president, and Betty King, secretary. The second semester officers were Kenny Carlson, president, Dick San- dahl, vice president, and Carol Bodell, secretary. Always behind the scenes were Miss Likins, Miss Demorest, and Mr. Feelhaver with their reliable supervision and help. The Council operates on a committee system With each member belonging to one of the sixteen committees, which meet with Miss Likins frequently. The members all assemble for a general meeting once each month. Working as the governing body of the school, the Student Council members are representative of the school itself, so belonging to this group is one of the most important offices one can hold in his high school career. The Council works behind the scenes, organizing the dances, the plays, keeping the trophies shined and the halls lighted, checking the lockers and cars, working altogether to the best of their ability towards a better school.

Those colorful half-time programs at the sta- dium-the sounds of practicing throughout the building-the Christmas carols in the halls-the varied assemblies and special numbers-the school songs rousingly played by the brass sextet-all the special touches, the extra melody that helped make a good senior year a better one. -63- X X ,ya The Enndulztur Haises , ...-Q -W-iv' ' DALE HILTON President Under the baton of H. A. Bergan the seventy-piece concert band completed a very successful year. The first semester resulted in sight reading numerous pieces and im- proving tone and instrumentation. The first concert was given the early part of the second semester at junior high. Sunday, March 11, a public concert was given, the first of several to be given during March, April, and May. These concerts were largely attended and enjoyed by all. Dale Hilton and Bob Spillman were president and vice president respectively.

Dwane Mickelson, Dean Olson, Dunne Kingsbury, and Earl Nelson were chosen for the group. Performances in school .md to outside organizations were welcomed by all. L i i Brass Sextet Brass Sextet was one of the most p 0 p u l a r instrumental groups produced by Mr. Bergan this year. There were numerous places for which the group played, including many churches, civic organizations, conventions, and school activities. Members were Dale Hilton, Roger Brown, Scott Libbey, Kenny Butzier, Carroll Hovick, and Dwane Mickelson. Marion Carr replaced Roger Brown mid-year. Saxophone Sextet An entirely new and dif- erent group was the saxophone sextet organized the second se- mester. Made up of girl saxo- phonists, who practiced diligent- ly twice a week, much was ac- complished in conquering band and group music. Rita Ruebel, Dorothy Vogel, Betty Burnett, Norma Kutz, Janice Bailey, and Mary Alice Halverson made up the group. SHOW SHOP ORCHESTRA This year, Show Shop Orchestra was organized for but one purpose, that of playing for the operetta, "Her Regiment." Starting practice the middle of February, this select group of instrumentalists gave a fine performance when their big night arrived. TRUMPET TRIO Marion Carr, Dale Hilton and .lim Officer made up this year,s trumpet trio which carried on the work of last year's group. Appearing with the band in a concert, play- ing for Know Your Schools and several civic organizations, the trio completed a short but highly successful year. INSTRUMENTALISTS REWARD For the past several years instrumentalists have been rewarded for their efforts by hav- ing individual pictures in the Little Dodger and Fort Dodge Messenger. Those chosen are taken from band and orchestra members who show good citizenship, outstanding ability and the will to work. For the first band CO11CC1't this year Rita Ruebel, saxo- phone soloist, Dale Hilton, leader of the trumpet section, and Dwane Mickelson, head of the trombone section, had their pictures taken. ,671 Urcllestra Mr. Bergan, with the assistance in string technique of Miss Wfilliams, had a very successful orchestra this year. Music played was by more popular composers although the classical numbers did not get excluded. One of the most enjoyed pieces was "The Blue Danube XValtz', by Johann Strauss. Thanksgiving marked the first appearance of the orchestra, which was closely followed by the annual Christmas concert. The last semester was marked by several Sunday concerts in March and April. Highlight of the year was the renewal of the Spring Festival of Boone, Ames, and Fort Dodge. Held at Boone in the middle of May, the trip was highly successful. Kenny Butzier was this yearls president, and Bob Ulstad filled the vice-president's office.

Because of the reputation of excellence it has built up through- out the years the chorus was much in demand for programs at many of the city organizations. Along with outside appearances it also made several radio broadcasts and gave us several entertaining assembly pro- grams. ln the line of "something new has been added" the rehearsal time was changed this year and Mr. Hakes enlarged the chorus to include many sophomores who had previously been excluded from membership. The chorus combined a lot of work, their programs and the operetta, with the pleasure and fun that comes from singing in an outstanding organization.

The course of love never seems to run smoothly, as the hero Andre De Courcy QOrville Siversonj and the heroine Estelle Durvernay Qjune Lowryj quickly learned. But it wasn't all seri- ous, for some of the most enjoyable parts were the laughs furnished by Dick Stephan and Lois Olson as the carefree Blanquet and untidy Lisette Berlier respec- tively.

Juana Kirchner, as the Days' mother, was perpetu- ally overwhelmed with her many family duties and her husband so far away. The matriarchal mother- in-law lGwen Babbittj firmly took matters into her own hands only to have everything become much more involved. The WAC lieutenant daughter, Mary, was played by Marcella Stanck, while Lyall Butler imperson- ated the ultra-feminine daughter, Betty. Kenny liutlier, Bill Headlee and Norman Rosen took the parts of three Air Corps lieutenants in the cast, the first of whom furnished the love interest for the Day daughter, Mary. Dick Cervene provided many a laugh as the psychiatrist, Professor lfud. Sam Westbrook was in the part of Reverend Fredrick: Merle Fishel, jose. a Brazilian sailor, jim Greenfield, MacDougall, a Scotch lieutenant, ,lim Christensen as the plumber, and Theano Pappas as a woman re- porter, Beth Finley. Charlotte Jensen was cast as Piggy, Danny Day's girl friend. while Dick Stephan had the role of the exuberant I8-year-old Dannyg Shirley Oppel was Harriet Day, married to the Days, older son. Mary Alane Calahan and -lane Lloyd acted the parts of Grandma's spinster sisters. Peggy Dollivvr was I.eota the maid, and June Greenlief, Mrs. Hustle, cook and housekeeper. 3 ., I-3 2:1 .f 2-JG 5 ':..f? .- fl? 'LH ..

Almost anytime you looked there was a group of people all excited and pounding away like mad on the type- writers-that,s right, the Little Dodger staff. This year was as busy as always for the staff, but there were extra ad- ditions to the work. Along with all the usual frantic dashing, there was the endless task of typing the mailing list for each copy for the hundreds of servicemen to whom the paper is sent. But before that took place all the other work had to be done, getting assign- ments, chasing after needed facts or interviews, racking your brain over some eopy only to find there was more still to be done, of figuring out head- ings, checking and rechecking. Yes, it was work, hard and rushed, but it was -7g,, Al Sharun's Shup fun, too, the fun of seeing your copy in print, your heads set up, the reward of all the laughs when the Pi-Line or Iirom The Bench or the lnquiring Re- porter were read, the excitement and expectation and stolen minutes from class work when the Dodger Fridays rolled around. This year, too, the l.ittle Dodger became an extracurricular ac- tivity so all the time spent was the time of each individual. Hildegarde Sand- berg and klune Greenlief handled the liditor role capably and efficiently, with the help of Shirlee Oppel as Busi- ness Manager and there was always Miss Sharon's guiding hand. The whole staff did a super job, cooperating, help- ing each other, getting out the paper entirely on their own time, and to all the staff from all the school goes thanks for lots of laughs and enjoy- ment. -71, g 1 l 'N ,,-"""" H vb Rx Exe dv! wif, 'fa gf? fm?

Another year has passed and we are still at War. This year has been sig- nificant to us as a nation, for it brought us nearer our goal, total Victory, thru the Invasion of Nor- mandy, the liberation of Rome, Paris, the Philippines and so on. But to us, the year is not only un- forgettable for these things alone, but for the fun, good times, and experiences We have had. From these experiences we, as young people, will be prepared to make the most important contribution We can to the post-War World, that is, the influence of a fully matured and understanding mind.

Witli the return of five lettermen, Merle Davidson, center, George Knack and junior Janssen, forwards, Ralph Woodard and Bill Beers, guards, the cagers had the prospects of a good season. This combination started out by downing Boone, 34 to 19. Next they were squeezed out by one point when North Des Moines rallied at the last minute. Getting back into their reg- ular form, the Dodger quintet eased past Roosevelt and Iiast, both of Des Moines. At mid-season Davidson and Knack were lost by graduation and Janssen was called in the draft. Red Lockert, a tall, red-headed transfer from Minnesota, with the veteran guards Wfoodard and Beers, formed the nucleus of the team. One of the highlights of the year was the double defeat of both Wfaterloo schools by the Dodgers. Trav- eling to Wfaterloo before mid-year the Dodgers stopped a powerful Vlfahawk quintet the first night, and eased past the Trojans the next night. Coming up to Fort Dodge later in the season, with hopes of revenge, both of these clubs were turned by the magnificent play of the Dodgers. After this occasion, the Dodgers lost to Wfebster City, North, Iiast and Roosevelt of Des Moines by one or two point margins. Filled with high spirit and fight, the Dodgers moved into the State Tournament at Webstei' City. They were scheduled to play Rolfe in the first round. This game was one of the heart breakers of the year. Witli two minutes to go, the Dodgers led a hard-fought game by one point. Murray, from Rolfe, as the last seconds ticked by, dribbled down the floor and shot a long, left- handed, push shot, This shot went into the air as the buzzer sounded ending the game. The shot was missed and his fellow teammate grabbed the re- bound and put it in. The ref- erees and timekeeper didn't see this incident and there was a doubt as to which shot actually went in. Finally, however, the game was given to Rolfe. This concluded a fair season in which the Dodgers lost six games and won six in the Big Seven Conference.

Wresllinq The Dodger grapplers opened the season at the annual Eagle Grove invitational meet, winning second place. Being considerably handicapped with injuries, the Dodgers were only able to win two of the seven dual meets, but in a hard fought Big Seven tournament the matmen won a close second place. Eight men went to the District at Eagle Grove and placed third, four of them going on to the State the following week at Clarion. At the State meet Carlson and Smith placed second and third respectively.

Didn't have much in the way of natural ability. Everything he accomplished can be laid in the doors of fortitude and determina- tion. If Ed had another year, he would really go. W AYNE SMITH-129 Lbs. Fort Dodge never had a more consistent trainer, a harder worker, nor a wrestler that should have been champion than Wayne. He did win the Eagle Grove Invitational, the Big 7, and the District. He had to be satisfied with third at the State but in my heart, he will always hold the place of a champion. KENNY CARLSON-155 Lbs. He had a fine looking record. Eagle Grove Invitational champion, District champion, and second in the State. Accounted for S of our 7 points. He had seven falls out of thirteen matches that he wrestled during the season. Had it not been for his four weeks absence, our team record would have looked a lot better. When Kenny's right, he is unbeatable. HOWARD STEINHOFF-135 Lbs. I believe Howard was the competitor of our squad. He rose to his best under the most adverse circumstances, He was defeated only once during the dual season and won seven falls during the season. If we had had Howard or Kenny in the Big 7 tournament, Fort Dodge would have won it. lor tht tt im wt hive Ind lots better and we have had many that were more faithful to prictict and some that worked harder and longer, but never have we had a team that suffered my more from the handicapped circumstances. With just a few breaks, this slmt YLIIH might hlvt taken its place with the best. -114- .IUIIN HARRISON-105-112 Lbs. DEL CLAYTON LUWRY-118-123 Lhs. LYLE SCHUII-95 Lbs.

Cllayt was something of an "in and outerf' Something seemed to drag upon Clayt at times but his exhibitions in the Big 7 Tourna- ment showed that Clayt has the makings of a big time wrestler.

COACHES COOPER AND DUEA - 116-- .Ioe Casey-Student Manager As a manager, he takes his place among those we have had that were better than average. He was regular. punctual, and easy to work with. He always had the wel- fare of the team at heart. -2::e-fn' W 1, my V I WWE- .LY f ff ' JJ Come Sl17l'Il7g Men nf the Diamond This year's team has only three returning lettermen, Woodard, Con- stantine and Martin, infielders. The prospective candidates to fill in the positions are young but full of spirit and should prove to be winners. The schedule for this year was April 10-Moorland, April 13-Eagle Grove, April 17-Callender, April 20-Gilmore City, April 27-Man- son, May 1-Bancroft, May S, 7, 8-Sectional Tournament, May 14, 15-District, May 21, 22, 23-State, and May 25-Big Seven. ttf The Dodger Nine of "44" was one of the best teams developed here since the starting of this sport. Their record proves this by winning eleven in a row but finally dropping one to Davenport, 3 to 0, in the semi-finals of the State Tournament. Traveling to Mason City later for the Big Seven Tournament the Dodger batsmen lost their last game to West Waterloo, 1 to 0, in an eleven-inning game. The Dodgers had a a powerful hitting lineup and their fielding was something to be con- gratulated. Knack and Janssen took care of the mound duties with Bingham behind the plate. Wieshaar was on first with Schuh, Constan- tine, Woodard, and Martin completing the infield. Tomlinson, Dick- erson, and Peterson took care of the outfield. This team had a good record which will not soon be forgotten. -118- lH44'frack Snasnn Coach Ben Duea's cindermen opened the 1944 season with a tri- angular meet with Humboldt and Webster City. Fort Dodge Walked off with first place laurels. They then traveled to Cherokee for the Tomahawk relays where they placed third. At the annual Drake Relays, Fort Dodge placed fourth in the mile relay, first and fourth in the mile run, with Prohaska setting a first record for the high school mile run at Drake. Fort Dodge placed second at the Clarion Cowboy relays. Eighty-nine points were amassed as Fort Dodge won the District, and the following week the Dodgers placed third in the Big Seven at Des Moines. At the State Meet, Prohaska took second in the mile run, the mile relay won third, medley relay fourth, and Wasem won a fourth in the high hurdles. The lettermen were Bill Beers, Ollie Buckner, Joe Carpenter, Paul Eide, Charles Ernst, Leland Etzel, Art Kirsch, Roy Linder, Carl Loria, Elmer Miller, Duane Osam, Don Ploog, Melvin Pollard, Ray Prohaska Qco-capt.J , Gerald Ruby, Bob Schweiger Cco-capt.J , Henry Wasem, and Don Tilton fmanagerj. 1945 This year we look forward to a winning season. When Coach Ben Duea issued a call for trackmen, 71 men reported from high school and 12 freshmen came up from junior high. With eight returning letter- men the prospects are far better than at the beginning of the '44 season. The Dodgers will run in the Valley relays, Tomahawk relays, Drake relays, Fort Dodge Invitational meet, District, Big Seven, and State. As the schedule indicates the tracksters have a big season ahead of them. -119- Gulf Under the expert supervision of Coach Cooper the golfers of 1944 had a very successful season. Members of the team were Captain Harold Schill, Stuart Pfaff, Ray Kruckman, Brad Schaupp, Craig Walters. The team came in second at the Big Seven Tournament and also won the District Tournament. Although winning the District, the team voted not to compete in the State Tournament. Golf in 1945 was discontinued because of lack of enough boys to constitute a team. Tennis With the beautiful tennis courts at Dodger Field, tennis has really come into its own in the last couple of years. This year's schedule is a very tough one. Ames Dual, April 14, Eagle Grove Dual, April 21, Mason City Dual, April 28, Ames Invitational Tennis, May S, Big Seven, May 12, District Tennis, May 19g State Tennis, May 26. The boys, working under the able direction of Coach Cooper, are as follows: jack Walrod, Vince Swanson, Speed Spilka, Rob Rathermel, Dennis Wiewel, Bob Hughlin, Dean Glamon and Bob Manning. Coach Wright coached the tennis team of 1944. The team played in the District Meet but couldn't compete in any other meets due to the lack of transportation. Jack Bonnell was elected Captain. Other mem- bers of the team were Bob Rathermel, Speed Spilka, Vince Swanson, Bob Bickal, Dennis Wiewel. -120- Intramurals Basketball True to form, basketball was the most popular intramural sport this year. This season Coach Marquis used the round robin form of elimination. liach team played ten games, highlighted by fast action and thrilling finishes. Room 103, after many hard fought battles was found to be the victor. Members of this homeroom are: Morrill Mericle, Roy l.indner, Bill Fletcher, Will! O'Connor, Paul Lcssmeier. Wrestlixlg Again this year intramural wres- tling was very popular with 82 boys turning Ollt. The ten cham- pions are as follows: Marvin Griffon, 95 lbs., Myron Cervene 105 lbs., Sam Enzauro 112 lbs., Bill Headlee 118 lbs., jack lfowl- er 123 lbs., .Iohn Gunderson 129 lbs., Dick Savage 135 lbs., jack Anderson 145 lbs., Vernon Sor- enson 155 lbs., and lrv Robinson, heavyweight. Swimming There were 28 entries in intra- mural swimming this year with much close competition involved. Top honors went to Forrest Prine, Marvin Stringer, John Henman, Jim Demery, and Ken- neth Brown. Obstacle Course The obstacle course has proved itself to be highly successful in giving boys 11 more complete p h y sic al education program. Everyone taking part in this pro- gram is trying to better the rec- ord of Jack Blomberg which is 40.7 seconds. "Bloomer Girl" Miss Norrlman and Miss M smas- oss are really "on flacf ball. 123 Six kicks fo a slroke, girls. I for Iarlenifr. Floafiug Pyramid. Classes "Hang your clothes on a hickory line but don't go near the water" is a saying long disregarded by our own Dodger mermaids. The pool is the scene of practical jokes and many hours spent perfecting differ- ent strokes and dives. So much time is allotted for learning the fundamentals of the basic strokes such as the crawl, side stroke, breast stroke, elementary and rac- ing back stroke. Each girl is eager to perfect her own. Those who are more advanced concentrate their efforts on learning new dives and perfecting old ones. Their progress recorded on a chart, which lists some fifty tests, includes swimming from a width to twenty-two lengths on each stroke, stunts, and about ten dives. Lifa Saving Our Life Saving class under the direction of Miss Nordman was made up of 25 girls this year. This includes both Junior and Senior Life Saving. Classes were held between 4:00 and 5:30 on Thursday nights. Life Saving is divided into two parts: water work and general water safety. Water work is carried on during the warmer months and consists of: level- ing, head carry, chest carry, front surface approach, under water approach, block, parry, wrist grip, front and back release, head release, head carry, hair carry, fire- man's carry, saddle-back carry, and tired swimmers carry. During the winter, dis- cussions are carried on on water safety. This pertains to safety rules for beaches, pools, and for swimmers themselves and the techniques and skills in using Life Saving equipment at all times. Tests in both of these are given in the spring in order to be sure that each girl is prepared to carry on Life Saving. Glng, Glug. Oni goes flu' had air CD11 your mark- 1944 I"i4'l:flmll Clmnzjmx.

NOVEMBER-DECEMBER Throughout these months the volleyball courts are set up and volleyballs are in play continually. The tournaments, made up of sophomore, junior, and senior teams, create great excitement. JANUARY-FEBRUARY Basketball, one of our favorite sports, is played continually through these two months and Ll short while in March. MARCH-APRIL Badminton, deck tennis, and ping pong are competitive sports. Tournaments are held both in singles and doubles for each. MAY In May we return to the out-of-doors again to play softball-a good tourna- ment sport. Prnlic Our High School Physical Education pro- gram is divided into two groups: the physical education classes and the intra- mural sports. The class program is a period of instruction. Instruction is given in techniques, skills and rules to every student. Throughout the class program, the following are the objectives we seek to accomplish: l. The development of neuromusclar skills. 2. Development of organic vigor. 3. Knowledge of rules, methods, etc. 4. Ability to work and play cooper- atively with others. lntramurals take place from 4:00 until 5:00 o'clock after school. By participat- ing in these activities, girls earn points toward their letter award in girls ath- letics. This is a recreational program and purely voluntary. Intramurals are divided into three divisions: team sports, dual activities and individual sports, each of which is universally popular. This year we have over a hundred and forty girls participating in the different activities and more letters will be received this year than in past years.

The class officers were: D President, Don Sampsong Vice lresident, Karl johnson: Secretary-Treasurer, Dennis johnson, with jim Wfhittemore, Mary Ellen Baldwin and Georgia XVeideman as council members at large. December 12 marked the annual Christmas dance of the SAP's. In other years this has been a formal dance but it was chosen to be in- formal this year. Another social occasion that afforded much pleas- ure this year was "skip day." Every- one was packed into either one of the cars or the truck and set off to Dolliver Park. Of course, that was before Uncle Sam called most of che boys away. The spring banquet on May 8 brought the season's events to a close. Sigma Alpha Phi, more commonly called SAP's, is the sorority for Junior College girls. Meetings are held on the second Monday of every month. Officers this year were: President, Phyllis Wiseg Vice-Presi- dent, Rita Masong Secretary, Norma Dooley, and Treasurer, l.ois Burnet. Committees are appointed for each meeting to take care of refresh- ments and entertainment.

Q1-10 - BERNARD HAYDEN JOHN SEAR BOB KEARNS DON PLOOG Above are just a few of the Junior College boys who have entered the Armed Services within the past year. The year began with seventeen boys enrolled and of those seventeen, three remain. Some have gone into the Army, some into the Navy, and some chose the Air Corps. Besides those pictured above, the following boys have left during the year: Karl Johnson, Dennis Johnson, Jack Blomberg, Vernon Gustafson, Don Sampson, and Joe Harrington. -141- Puhlinatinns Big Dodger This year on the Big Dodger Staff, we have Georgia Weidanaaln, Lois Finney, Norma Headlee and Phyllis Wise. joan Pieper was with us at the beginning of the year hut she left us recently to help the govern- ment. Even with fewer students we have tried to mak our section as successful as it has been in previous years. After all our trouble we have gone to, to get pictures of our J. C. boys who have entered service, we have ended up with only a few. College Campus Due to our shortage of boys in C., our College Campus is composed of all girls. They are Norma Dooley, Lois Burnet, Shirley Grosz, and Arlene Willianms, with Miss Sharon as advisor. -142- '7hmk4... To Mr. Joselyn for being an ideal Dodger advisor-so understand- ing, so tactful, and so eager to go to Smith's and the Messenger. To che Waterloo Engraving Company for those fine engravings and such quick service. To Mr. Weston who made many of our dreams come true. To the high school office who so willingly furnished us with reams of information. To Eleanor, Dick, and Bob for adding so much to our book by doing such outstanding art work. To Nels Isaacson for taking our pride and joy, the colored frontis- piece. To Police Officer Gormally who was such a willing model for our Hi-Life division page. Was it three or four trips you made? To Jack, Bill, and Bob for coming out of the dark with so many good pictures. Say Jack, you never did teach me how to work our Graphic Reflex. To Wayne who not only balanced the books but helped Ralph and Jerry out tremendously. To Kay for being an editor's dream come true. Much of the credit should go to her. To Theano, who when not typing, entertained us with her vivid portrayals of the most touching scenes in "SO Seconds Over Tokyo." To the Little Dodger for letting us borrow their typewriters. By the way, one of them needs fixing. To "Mr. Mac" who was always ready with a smile and a "Hi, Blondie!,' To Smith Photos who gave us unrestricted access to their develop- ing department. To Dale, Joan, Martha, Madronna, Ralph and Georgia who worked so hard. To everyone who helped in putting out this 1945 Dodger.
