I congratulate you on your successful completion
of the high school course. Graduating from high
school is one of life's worthy ambitions.
You are living in a tentative and changing society.
It is my sincere wish that you find yourselves prepared
in knowledge, skills and attitudes to live successfully
in such a dynamic World. To be capable of adjusting
yourselves to changing conditions is necessary if you
expect to live as a worthy citizen in this good old

May happiness and success follow you throughout
all the years.

Gone now is the glamour of war and destruction.
In its place we must find a new challenge to our
energy and ability. If we do not, they will bring us
chaos and destruction. To get this proper balance,
moral and spiritual values must be incorporated in
our Way of life.
Your education is not complete unless you have
learned how to get along with other people. I urge
all of you to plan your contribution to lasting peace
and good will.

The former thoughts and interests of the Junior students
concerning the future were focused on the war and its hardships.
Now, in the days of peace, we as the future rulers of our destiny
must realize the facts.
Today we are just students in any of the numerous schools
throughout "our country." It will be upon our shoulders to
discover what is expected of us.
In preparing for this great task we turn to the Seniors, the
leaders in style. It is up to them as Seniors to give us guidance
in keeping their high standard of school activities.

Now, with the close of Wforld XVar H, the future holds a
brighter outlook for high school students. The next thing in
line is the challenge to us of maintaining the hard won peace.
The upperclassmen have set a record of which they have a
right to be proud. I'm sure we sophomores will do our best to
equal or better it.
So, speaking for the sophomore class, I extend to the Seniors
the best of luck and happiness a peaceful world has to offer.

A lifflf' work, a Iitllf play
fo fervlb 115 going."
For the second time in Dodger history, the
champion football team of this year elected a queen
to reign over the Dodger homecoming. Beverly
Holmstrom, an attractive Dodger co-ed, received
this high honor. She was attended by six popular
senior girls: Martha Mitchell, Shirley Anderson.
Merope Mitchell, Helon Condon, Bev Branson and
Lois Olson, also elected by the football team.
Highlights of the homecoming festivities centered
around the colorful pep rally which was planned by
the cheerleaders. To start the evening, large crowds
of students gathered downtown to participate in a
snake dance which, starting at the city square,
moved up main street and from there out to the
stadium. Here the program consisted of stunts put
on by the students, and the burning of a huge "R"
of straw to signify the deat of our homecoming
opponent, Roosevelt, of Des Moines. As a climax
to the evening's events, Miss Holmstrom who like
her six attendants was dressed in a pastel formal, was
crowned "Queen of Homecoming," by the captain
of the football team, john Fieseler. The attendants
were escorted on the platform by members of the
team who presented them with corsages of the school
colors. This ended a successful homecoming cele-

and the camera were seen everywhere, anytime
snapping every bit of Dodger life. Each section
was then hard at work on the dummies and
things really started rolling. Copy was writ-
teng mounting and cutting began. It was all
new to us, but we soon caught on. Piece by
piece and page by page the book was sent
to the engravers and now it is com-
pleted. Witli the fine cooperation of
the staff and our wonderful advisor
and greatly appreciated outside
help, we give you your book.
We have tried in every way to
record the past school year
in the most interesting
way. Wfe are proud of
this book and hope
you all like it.

and certain facts, rushing madly down town to
get advertisements and then the folding and
mailing job that must he done, because hun-
dreds of copies are sent to service men and
alumni-but it's fun too, and wonderful
experience. For the first semester Betty
lflliot was at the editor,s desk and
Glenn Lundhlad carried on for her
efficiently the second semester.
Of course, Miss Shnron's skillful
directions and the co-operation
of the staff made this year,s

Membership in the A Cappella choir is the goal of all choristers who study
vocal technic in the second and fifth period glee clubs. Under the capable
leadership of a newcomer, Mr. Clayton Hathaway, this choir gained the
reputation of being a most outstanding and popular musical organization.
A very extensive program included many school and community activ-
ities. The Thanksgiving and Christmas concerts and the baccalaureate
service were the outstanding school performances, while the community
entertainments included those for conventions, service clubs, and Junior High.
The climax was the tri-city festival to which Fort Dodge was host. It was
directed by Henry Veld.
The members can look back with satisfaction upon this year as one filled
with enjoyment and achievement of invaluable training. Credit of its success
is due in part to the fine accompanists, Mrs. Peterson and Mary Henkle.

Many new and younger voices were heard in the Madrigal group as it entered its
second year bringing back tunes of the 17th century. Although they appeared in Costume
typical of this period their programs contained other types of choral literature, including
special radio arrangeinente. To typify "genuine madrigalsu in tonal caliber and dress
was their goal. This group holds great promise for the coming year.

Before a full house, members of the high school and junior college choruses took the
audience to the mythical land of Sylvania where the action of "A Wgiltz Dreamu was
laid. There, King Maximilian X plans to marry his daughter, Helene, to Niki, a lieutenant
in the Hussars. Helene, however, loves Rupert, a childhood sweetheart, and Niki is in
love with Kay Robinson, an American artist. As always, the path of love is rocky, but
in the end true love is victorious.
Bertrum Budget, an American eiheiency expert, the scheming of Count Sigismund,
and the antics of Count Lothar supplied the comedy.
A dancing chorus and two solo dances, a waltz and a tap, were outstanding,
The show shop orchestra and the choruses added the extra something that made the
operetta one of this vearis best productions.

Xvilll .1 wealth of skilled .ind talented material available, the prospects for the year were
promising when the orchestra was organized by Mr. Bergan last fall. They skillfully
mastered any difficult numbers, both classical and novel, for which Miss Wfilliams, in-
structor of string technique, deserves much credit.
The orchestra worked diligently at the beginning of the year to prepare for their
annual Thanksgiving and Christmas concerts. Throughout the winter they practiced
with anticipation of the May festival when Fort Dodge was host to the Boone and Ames
high school orchestras. Directing the final concert was James Robertson, director of the
Symphony Orchestra of Springfield, Missouri.

A large amount of the world's finest music has been written for string quartets. This
year, although the ensemble wasn't organized until second semester, the members became
acquainted with several masterpieces. Iispecially well liked were the Hayden "Minuettos.l'
Their programs for civic organilations also consisted of much lighter material used as

Several of the first trumpeters organized to make up this trio which was considered
the best in several years. Because of their close intonation and finesse of performance, their
presence was requested at many functions, especially at churches. The highlight of their
season was at the Milla Fund Show in which they were featured in Hennebergis "Triplets

The outlook for the 1945 season was none too
promising as coaches Marquis and Duea had only six
returning lettermen. Of the three linemen and three
backs returning only one had been a regular the year
Wfith these men as a nucleus, the Dodgers began to
roll. Captain Fieseler injured his knee in our first
game against Albert Lea and had to miss the Boone
game. Having Buckner put across two touchdowns
in the second half against Boone, the Dodgers went on
to race over Sioux City Central, West, and East
Waterloo in rapid succession.
Next came our jinx for two years straight East
Des Moines had stopped our winning streak. Even
with the field on their side we pulled through with a
victory. The last two games were the preview of the
"46" season as the reserves were played often against
Mason City and Roosevelt Des Moines.
For the first time in 26 years the Dodgers were
undefeated and untied. Fort Dodge was "Big 7 Cham-

The Dodgers, with six returning lettermen, started out on their tough schedule by
playing three Big Seven Schools. The Dodgers eouldn't hit their stride and play the kind
of ball that they were capable of playing until the season was three-quarters over. Then
with a revamped lineup of Sweeney, Vedvig, Robinson, Woltl, and Constantine, the
Dodgers won their last four out of five games. Improving all the time, the team won two
games in the district playing Eagle Grove and Boone. The Dodgers, next game in the
sub-state was with Le Mars whose average height was 6 feet 3 inches. The height was too
much for the Dodgers and they lost the game. Even with a lot of hard luck, the Dodgers
had a successful season.

When Coach Cooper went to Eldora, he turned the
wrestlers over to Coach Duea. He left him three lette1'-
men and two regulars along with some green ambitious
wrestlers. The team, with only one senior, developed fast.
The highlight of the season was the defeat of Osage, who
won the District meet from West Waterloo, which
in turn won the state championship. The prospect for
next year is very bright. The only regular graduating is

The 1946 track season started with the return of many lettermen. Witla their back-

were scattered throughout the squad in distance, sprint, and field events.
This year the squad has a tough schedule, it includes the follows: Valley Relays,

.. . ,p ,Q , ,S , 1945
The 1945 track team started the season with very good prospects. Eight returning
lettermen formed the nucleus of Coach Duea's team. Four of the eight were molded
into the 880 and mile relay teams in the state. Besides the relay teams, we had one of the
best hurdlers in the state. Fort Dodge took fifth place in the Valley relays with Heinie
Wasem defeating Jack Nygaard, 1944 champion. The Dodgers took fourth place in
the Tomahawk relays and won the 880 at Drake. In a surprise move, Coach Duea took
five men to the Grinnell meet, entered four events, and brought home four firsts. The
mile relay broke the record which had been set by Coach Duea's Valley Des Moines team.
The team forfeited its chance to win the District by keeping the relay team together to
break the records. They broke both the 880 and the mile records. The team then went
to the Big Seven and placed third. Then, two days before the meet, Duane Osam went
to the Navy. This broke up the relay team of Osam, Wasem, Kruckman, and Pollard,
thus Fort Dodge lost its chance of winning the State.

The beginning of the season did not look too good for the Dodgers, as there were
only three lettermen returning. They were: Constantine, Woodard and Martin. Around
these three a whole new and inexperienced team had to he built. There was much work
to he done to improve the team. The Dodgers proved to be a strong team they
dropped seven of the eleven foes by big margins. The last defeat was the hardest to take,
because the Red and Black had just started hitting their stride, when they ran up against
Somers. Eddie McNeil held the Dodgers to one hit, as he rang up an eight to three
victory. This dropped the team from the District tournament.

There has never been a time when the need for a
college education was more evident. The opportunity
to receive this great experience is reaching out to
many to whom advanced study has never before
been possible. Our government has recognized the
need for college trained men and women and has
opened the gates of higher learning to them. The
road to a college degree will still, however, be filled
with obstacles. Remember, that anything worth
having is worth working for. The challenge of edu-
cation is as great as that we faced when our demo-

Dodger. The College Campus had a slow start, and it was only in the second semester
that it was published in "The Little Dodgerf, Since that date it has appeared in each issue
and was the pride and joy of junior College. The Dodger staff also had a slow start, but
this section shows they came through.
