As the world becomes more com-
plicated and living more difficult,
the necessity of education presses
more heavily upon all of us. 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.

I congratulate you on the successful

Graudation from the high school is one
of life's worthy ambitions.
Be encouraged, for the future has a lot

are fighting this war do a better job than
we did in the last one. If they do this

A year ago when I wrote in this space,
the world picture was anything but hope-
ful for the allied interests. 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

the price of life. Many thought enough

in the future and we will strive for a record
similar to theirs.

While education takes place prima-
rily from one's formal studies, there
are also important values to be
gained from the school environ-
ment, and from one's activities as
a high school student. 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.
"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 ! !
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.
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.
"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.
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.

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.

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.
X ,ya The Enndulztur Haises
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

Witli such ll large trombone
section, the forming of a trom-
bone quartet was almost inev-
itable. 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 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

XVith the precision of a military unit the Marching Band carried on its regular between-
halves performance during the football season. Playing while maneuvering was em-
phasized this year and the resulting color added to a fine season. Again this year Mr
Bergan used a patriotic theme for the formations.

M R. HAKES
This year A Cappella Choir was again one of the outstanding activities
of school. 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

Against the colorful background of the Pomme d'Or
and Chateau Belleville in Normandy, the curtain rose
on this year,s operetta, "Her Regimentf, The yearly
operetta always has a reputation for being good, but this
one was outstanding, perhaps because everyone seemed
to be enjoying themselves. 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. "Her Regimentn moved smoothly and quickly
and the chorus and Showshop orchestra really came
through with that extra effort that made the operetta
one of the standout events of this year's activities.

A comical farce based on the home-front prob-
lems of an anything but typical American family
in the current war provided the general plot of the
1945 all-school play, "Days Wfithout Daddyf,
The play presents the complex domestic situation
of the four-generation Day family while Daddy
Day OVarren Stumpj is off to war in the far east.
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.

Nu Shortage nf Sharpness
Remember all those mornings and
noons dashing past Room 9 where the
activity made you always glance in?
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
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-
"Bing flruuntl Elizabeth"
As a Wind-up to the activities this year, on May 11 the Seniors pre
sented their play, "Ring Around Elizabeth." Comedy was definitely the
right word for it, with the heroine Elizabeth posing as an amnesia victim
to get the involved household straightened out. The clever dialogue
delivered by the "sharp eharaetersn made the play a real hit with tht

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.

Certainly one cannot measure the
benefits one derives from Working
together as a team or group mate-
rially. The spirit of fellowship and
cooperation developed today on our
gridirons and basketball courts is
an important phase of education.
In tomorroW's World, We shall be
working with people of all colors,
races and creeds. We shall be closer
together in our Work and in our
play than ever before. Our school
is fulfilling its highest duty both
to the present and to the future by
offering such programs.

The first five:
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

HOLLAND-l 35 Lbs.
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.
.IUIIN HARRISON-105-112 Lbs.
CLAYTON LUWRY-118-123 Lhs.
LYLE SCHUII-95 Lbs.
Of the five matches he won during the season, four were by fall.
This is in keeping with Dodger wrestling philosophy. "Johnnie
goes all out to pin."
BERT LEISS-155 Lbs.
Is another boy with not much of a gift for wrestling but was "all
wool and a yard wide" when it came to determination and an
insatiable desire to win.
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.
I.ost only two matches during the season. Wiis Eagle Grove Invi-
tational champion, Big 7 champion, District first champion, and
didn't have a chance to come back at the State. Threw nine
opponents of the eighteen he met during the season. Should be a
power next season.

XVasn't quite rugged enough to begin the season. He should have

start to the finish. He always did his best and the angels can do
Sometimes I think he wanted to wrestle more than anything else
and sometimes I don't think he cared whether he wrestled or not.
He had ability and if he had stayed with his wrestling last year
and allowed nothing to interfere with his program this year, he
could have been a champion and I think he would have been.
FORREST PRINE-145-155 Lbs.
Found himself at Osage. From then until the end of the season,
he came and came fast. l predict a successful future as a wrestler.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
There were 28 entries in intra-
mural swimming this year with
much close competition involved.
Top honors went to Forrest

"Hang your clothes on a hickory line but

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
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.

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
l. The development of neuromusclar
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.

With fewer enrolled and fewer subjects offered classes this
year are smaller and give each student more opportunity for
individual assistance. Miss Shannon is still capably acting as
dean until after the war when Lt. Dickey will resume his
position. The teachers pictured below are assuming their
duties as before.
Student Council formerly consisted of six members. The class officers were:
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.

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.
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.
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.
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
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-
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
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,
To Smith Photos who gave us unrestricted access to their develop-
To Dale, Joan, Martha, Madronna, Ralph and Georgia who worked
To everyone who helped in putting out this 1945 Dodger.
