Gridiron of 1900
Fiity years of education in this century!
That is the milestone We have passed
Sometimes with amusement, occasionally
with regret, and often with admiration.
we glance at the school of 1900.
As we remember the past We record the
present, forever hoping that we may be
proud of the comparison.
Dodger Studi um
The Seniors of 1950 dedicate this book to
the advancement of secondary education.
The great hope for a free people rests in
universal education of its future citizens.
As our nation increases its responsibilities
our school is meeting this challenge by
preparing us to live in this complex world.
As we leave high school we owe a debt
of gratitude to the men and women of the
present and past who have helped us to
better meet the problems that face us. We
are proud to receive this heritage and hope
we use it well.

CARL T. FEELHAVER
Many changes have taken place in sec-
ondary education during the past half cen-
tury. The movement away from the classical
pattern began when home economics, shop
courses, commercial subjects, agriculture
courses, and other practical subjects were
introduced. During the same period the junior
high and junior college became members of
the secondary family.

now a part of the curriculum, social studies

It is quite evident that the secondary school

Those whose decisions
C. T. Feelhuver,
The past fifty years have resulted in many
changes in our high schools in America. The
greatest change is the fact that the high
school is offering education for all the youth
of high school age, not just the ones that
are going on to college.
In providing education for all the youth of
our nation, it becomes the task of the school
to offer work that fits all the boys and girls
of high school age. There is a trend today
for the high school to offer work not only
in academic fields but also in the field of
arts, homemaking, shop and music. The
school also provides work experience for a
large number of boys and girls who want
the opportunity to try out certain working
The high school today should provide
students with the ability to live as more
useful citizens as well as being able to make
a living in our democratic society.

A modern physical education program is
made up of three partsMthe regular physical

areas a boy can find an outlet tor his interests

HOWARD HUGHES Director of Activities
Preparation for lite in the world ot to-
morrow places great responsibilities upon
our students in high school and college.
Those students who have participated in ac-
tivities are in a much better position to meet
situations in lite than those who have not
taken advantage of the opportunity offered.
It is our desire that every student engage in
at least one activity of their choice.

96 '70 of the student body purchased
The sale of the 1950 Big Dodger was suc-
cessful and the staff was in the mood for a
lot of hard Work. They knew nothing about
producing a year book, but they were willing
to learn. After attending some after-school
meetings, each division planned their section.
One of the hardest jobs came later-copy
writing. There were problems and difficulties,
but with the help of Clair Culver, faculty
advisor, and Tom Pingel, editor, everything
came out fine.
Many hours were spent in the dark room
Where Bill, Duane, and Tom developed over
a thousand pictures which they had taken.

Dodger Third in Big Six Conference
Dodger gridders again completed another
successful season. From the opening practice
until the final gun the Red and Black were
filled with the desire to win. The record for
the season was six wins, two losses, and one
tie, against the best competition in the state.
The Dodgers placed third in the Bix Six Con-
After two weeks of pre-school practice the
Dodgers received their baptism of fire in a
victorious encounter with Central Catholic of
Sioux City. After this they swung into Big
Six competition by smothering North Des
Moines. The Red and Black then downed
Central High of Sioux City. The three game
winning streak of the Dodgers was broken
by a stalwart West Waterloo aggregation.
The Dodgers countered with victories over
East Waterloo, and East Des Moines. but
then lost a close one to Ames on a blocked
kick. After this, an outclassed Mason City
team fought the Dodgers to a tie. The Red
and Black ended the season with a victory
over Boone in the annual Charity Game.

Season 's Survey
The Dodger '49-'50 basketball team
finished season play with a 10 won,
9 lost record. Playing some of the
state's toughest teams, the Dodgers
made a creditable showing-combin-
ing coaching, skill, and spirit to pro-
duce an exciting brand of basketball.
The Dodgers dropped the season's
opener to Ames, but then retaliated
by dumping the North Des Moines
Polar Bears in a thriller on their home
court. The court aces continued their
winning ways by dropping East Des Moines
in their only defeat of conference play and
also winning over Algona and Perry. Power-
ful West Waterloo stormed past but their
cross town rivals, East, met defeat in an
overtime. In a slow game played on the
Mason City hardcourt, the Trojans became
the third team to defeat the Red and Black.
Webster City and Humboldt became the sixth
and seventh victims and the Dodgers seemed
to be headed toward a great finish. Then the
roof fell in as three successive road foes-
West Waterloo, East Waterloo, and Webster
City-dropped the fading Dodgers. Showing
more spirit and determination than previ-
ously displayed, the Dodgers edged by
Tom Pingel Jim Olson Noel Llkins
North Des Moines and Mason City. The
regular season closed as the Dodgers lost
two successive heart breaking, overtime bat-
tles-to East Des Moines and Boone. At the
district tournament at Sioux City, highly
rated Sioux City Catholic was defeated in a
thrilling 44-41 encounter. Again traveling to
Sioux City, the potent Sioux City Central
basketeers dropped the Dodgers in the sub-
state tournament. This put the lid on the
1949-50 campiagn-a season packed full of
crowd pleasing and heart breaking action.
High scorer was Captain Howard Franks,
all Big 6 conference forward, with 204 points.
He was followed by Lloyd Cleven with 146
and Charles Ditzenberger with 143 points.

Grapplers Big Six Conference Champs
Under the efficient coaching of Gerald
"Germ" Leeman, and Robert McCaffrie, the
Fort Dodge grapplers annexed their second
consecutive Big Six Conference champion-
ship. The Dodgers won six dual meets, lost
one, and tied one. The team took first place
in the Eagle Grove Invitational Meet, fourth
in the district, and tenth in the State meet.
The Dodgers established themselves as a
wrestling power by overpowering some of
the toughest competition in the state. They
defeated North Des Moines, East Des Moines,
East Waterloo, Mason City, Council Bluffs
Thomas Iefferson, and Clarion. The matmen
tied West Waterloo and lost by a one point
margin to Eagle Grove. Probably the out-
standing match of the season was the 19-18
decision over East Waterloo. This clinched
the Big Six Conference championship.
In the State meet Phil Haring, 155 pounds,
placed second, and Frank Patterson, 122
pounds, took third place. Phil Haring and
Harold Hayungs were undefeated in dual
competition. Phil Haring was elected team

THE 1949 DODGER TRACK SQUAD won
several meets and produced some outstand-
ing individual stars. In the Cowboy CClarionl
Relays the Dodgers narrowly escaped Mason
City's challenge but pulled the meet out of
the fire by racing to victory in the final event,
the mile relay. The mile relay team, consist-
ing of Don Seltz, Iohn Tarr, Willie Zuck, or
Harry Kiliper, and Dick Sampson, broke the
meet records in the Cowboy Relays and in
the District Meet. The medley relay team con-
sisting of Dick Sampson, Iohn Tarr, or Mel

1949 Dodger baseball team completed a suc-

and North Des Moines, the team exhibited a
fine competitive spirit. The Dodgers were

ably manned by an experienced -player.

Many boys participated in the
intramural program under the
supervision of Coach Duea. The
program started during the win-
ter when several basketball
quintets unleased some exciting
games in the noon-hour league.
Separate tournaments w e r e
held both semesters. Wrestling
then took the spotlight and
again keen competition pre-
vailed on the mats. The intra-
mural program came to a thrill-
ing close as tankmen splashed
to individual championships.
The purpose of intramurals is
to stimulate competition and to
give a sporting chance to all.

Girls' physical education is divided into
two parts: the physical education classes and
intramural sports. Instructions in rules and
skills of all girls' competitive sports are given.
The ability to play and cooperate with others
is greatly stressed in this program. Intra-
mural sports are after school, from 4:00 to
5:00. These sports are entirely voluntary.
Ping pong, badminton, quoit, volleyball, bas-
ketball, softball, and swimming make up this
recreational program. Intramurals are di-
vided into three divisions: team sports, dual
activities and individual sports. By partici-
pating in these activities, the girls earn their
letter awards in girls' athletics. Two hundred
points are required for a letter. At least fifty
points in team sports, twenty-five points in
individual activities and ten points in skill
tests are needed for a letter. All points carry
over from year to year.

Good times were no doubt common
but records do not include many social
affairs as part of the school calendar.
Class parties were held about once a
month at different homes. Automobiles
were still curiosities so the parties
started and ended in the same place.

Parties. teas, dances, picnics and after
the game get togethers all added to the
hi life ofthe graduate of 1950. The auto-

THE FORT DODGE IUNIOR COLLEGE
was established in 1921 and has been
in operation since that time. Fort Dodge
has the honor of having one of the
largest Iunior Colleges in the state of
Iowa and the present trend in American
education points to the fact that it will
continue to grow from year to year.
We feel that Fort Dodge Iunior Col-
lege or community college is designed
to meet the needs of students who wish
to attend school at home and for those
who are unable to attend the regular
four year colleges.
It is our feeling that not only the trans-
fer students can be cared for, but also
the students who wish to complete their
formal education at this college. We
provide a two year curriculum which
will prepare students to enter the four
year college as well as the two year
curriculum that meets the needs of the
population within this community and
at the close of that time the latter student
is ready to take a serni-professional or
We look forward to continued growth
in our community college.

Pan ther Players - important part oil C. activities
Carrying on the tradition established by the organization, the Panther
Players played a great part in this year's junior college activities. Three
one-act plays: "Dust of the Road", "Pure Gravy", "Grand Cham's
Diamond", and a three-act play, "Do Re Mi" were produced. Members
took part in the speech festival at Marshalltown and had a big part in
producing the variety show.
An enthusiastic, exuberant
quartet, Iohn Holt, Wilma
Belmer, Polly Iohnson, and
Bill Anderson led the junior
college in rousing cheers. The
school spirit was excellent.
The cheerleaders sponsored
several out-of-town trips.

"Do Re Mi" was a down to earth human
interest play portraying the average Ameri-
can family trying to overcome problems
Common to all. It was a comedy in three acts.
The outstanding feature of this family was
its delight in a good old fashioned argument.
Its quick moving tempo with both humorous
and serious moments demanded attention
throughout the entire production.
The cast was composed of the following
people: Beverly Carlson, Kenneth Engholm,
Ioe Carberry, Pauline Iohnson, Ierry Nord-
quist, Carol Parker, Charleen Schroeder,
Milton Poisnick, and Wilma Belmer.

Choir spent two days on tour
The Choir was one of the most active of
all organizations in Iunior College. It was not
only an extra-curricular activity, but also a
credit course. During the year, the choir as-
sisted in the Thanksgiving and the Christmas
programs. In the spring the choir toured the
surrounding towns for two days, and ap-
peared in numerous other performances
along with the Variety Show. The choir en-
joyed many social activities, including a
horseback riding party, a pot-luck supper
and square dance, and a picnic.
A new addition to the choir this year was
the new uniforms. The girls with their white
blouses and blue skirts and the boys in their
new sport jackets and grey trousers made a
very impressive appearing group.

Grid Men Won 3 Lost 4
The Panther iron-men galloped through a
fairly successful season, tucking under their
belt three wins and four losses. Coach "Con-
nie" Goodman's squad of seventeen gridders
showed all the spirit, fight and sportsmanship
of a championship team and more than once
proved themselves worthy opponents.
The Panthers dropped their opening game

at Worthington 29-O, but splurged back and
upset Graceland 14-6 at home in the top game
of the season. The Fort Dodgers unleashed
their two scoring attacks in the second frame
and held Graceland to a lone tally in the third
period. The last two games of the season
moved into the winning column by stepping
over Waldorf 9-O and Mason City 13-7.

The Fort Dodge Panthers coached by Lisle
Townsend had a hard fought season full of
thrills, heartbreaking losses, and last second
victories. Most of the games were won or lost
by a narrow margin. In several games the
Blue and White came from behind in the last
few seconds to emerge victorious.
Eight of the games were lost by four or less
points. Ellsworth edged by the Panthers 51 to
50 and in a fast game at Eagle Grove the
Panthers lost another 43 to 42. Later the
Panthers dropped Eagle Grove 57 to 51. In
the games with Boone, Ellsworth, North-
western, and Eagle Grove the Blue and White
split even. The Panthers drubbed Emmets-
burg 64 to 48 and Marshalltown 60 to 44.
Although the squad was small the spirit
was high, and the team had plenty of tenacity
and excellent teamwork. Iohn Stewart, the
Panther center, was elected captain of the

At last, the end of another year and, of
course, the completion of the 1950 Dodger.
Probably no staff member will ever forget the
part he had in making our dream in the fall
a reality in the spring. After each individual
section had finished drawing up their layout
the sections were assembled and we began
to have an idea what the 1950 Dodger would
be like. Over a thousand pictures were taken
by Bill and his assistants and the best of
these were mounted by the staff members.
Pehaps the hardest job was writing copy to
accompany the pictures. By the usual flurry
of activity during the last few days staff
TOM PINGEL, Editor
members were able to meet most of the dead-
lines. The staff deserves a lot of credit for
the splendid job they have done but we
know nothing could be cr better reward for
them than to be able to read their book from
cover to cover as another actually completed
We will always owe a debt oi gratitude to
Clair Culver for the part he has done in
helping us produce this book. We also
heartily appreciate the cooperation of the
Waterloo Engraving Company and the Mes-
senger Printing Company.
