THE SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
HE present Senior Class began its illustrious career in 1918. With
much l'lllSg'lVllllI, we became Freshmen of the "greenest" variety, keep-
ing true to tradition.
Being innocently ignorant, we knew no better than to whisper
without permission, for which grave offense we were duly punished oy
being made to sit on the platform for whole periods at a time. Fortu-
nately, we were not alone in our affliction, for this punishment was xnctcd out to
ah, benior, and Freshie alike,
The next year brought thirty instead of forty-three to the Sophomore round
of the ladderp older in years and experience, yet spirited. Wewere more careful
of our bearing and tried hard to overcome our giggling, whispering tendencies.
Our boys showed a keen intel est in Basket-ball and practised industriously. Our girls
were especially honored by being asked a second time to serve at the Junior-Senior
banquet. They were likewise prepared to shine socially, the following year.
Juniors we were at last! No more teasing by upper classmen, no more
superior glances from those above us-we were now upper elasslnen. We opened
the social year by giving a banquet for the Football boys which was considered a
marvelous success. Next came the Carnival, for the benefit of the Athletic Asso-
ciation, to which we glaoly lent our assisstanee and staged the success of the eve-
ning, "Gertrude the Governcssf'
Social activities culminated in the Junior Senior Banquet in May, where the
High School was represented as the Universe. ln a garden under the blue sky,
lighted by the mellow glow of moon and stars, we honored the departing Seniors.
Clarence Mittun, as President of the class and Toastmaster of the occasion, very
cleverly introduced the speakers who likened our High School to the Universe, the
Faculty representing the Sun, about which the life of the school revolvesg the Sen-
iors, me staisg the Juniors, the Satellites striving to shine as brightly as the greater
planets, High School pleasures were compared with thc enchanting Moonlight.
Our present year began as all Senior years do-with a rush of work and then
a sudden lull-the lulls, however, were always too short and periods of work,
lengthy. Becoming Seniors meant more than taking thc seats on the East side of
the assembly, it IllQllTli, added duties, added dignities, .new responsibilities.
This year the majority of our clnssmen belonged to the victorious "Yanks"
who triumplledin the sale of Lyceum tickets. Our success was undoubtedly due
to our experieneehas salesmen last year and our eilorts were littingly rewarded when
we were presented with a "Loring Cup."
The most strenuous'undertaking we have attempted. is the publishing of the
Focus. We have encountered many dilliculties in our venture, but they have van-
ished by persistent effort on our part, and we know that in future years we shall
remember with a sense of pride that we helped to make the i'Focus."
We have endeavored to support our high school in all its activities, our boys
have figured ercditably on the Basket-ball team, our girls in the Glee Club. In the
east of the mus' -al comedy, "Miss Cherryb1ossom" many off our Seniors played im-
portant roles ak helped make it a success. .
We have spent many happy hours in these halls and it is with a feeling of
regret and sadness that we depart and seek our place in the great world outside.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
E, as the Freshmen class of nineteen hundred and nineteen, were not
unlike any other Freshmen class as we entered high school for the first
time, that bright September day. We were forty or more timid,
trembling, green Freshmen, anxious to enter the portals of knowledge,
yet hesitant. The orders, "Sit in the first two rows of seats in the
assembly" were welcome words to us, for no one knows how we dreaded Walking
on those freshly oiled floors! Each of us felt that the sophisticated Sophomores in
the neighboring rows had singled us out individually as the object of their jilts and
Our first class president was Alvira Kipp, who piloted our bark safely through
the green waves of the sen of knowledge. Many were the rose-colored plans we
laid for the class of '23. Socially, we did not shine that year, for we were -a wee
bit shy on -such occasions. The Domestic Science girls however gave several parties
which were considered particularly successful and a few of our girls also joined the
The following September brought us again to the halls of learning, fewer in
number but undaunted in spirit. We had passed the perils of Freshmen days and
now we knew it all. We regarded the incoming Freshmen with scornful superi-
ority, and gloried in their traditional blunders. In the spring we gave a never to-
be-forgotten picnic at Cross Lake in honor of our friends and help-mates, the
Seniors. Many of our girls took part in the operetta, "Twilight Alley," which was
presented by the grade pupils and Girls Glee Club.
The biggest event of the year was the High School Carnival where the Soph-
omores presided at fortune telling booths and candy counters.
As Juniors our number has fallen to twenty-three but staunch in 'the faith
that we can conquer our enemy Chemistry, we are exerting every effort to move on
toward the goal. ,
Of course, we have had our good times along with our trials. We did our
part in initiating the Freshmen, an event they will never forget and one that we will
The Yankee versus the Giant Contest in selling Lyceum Tickets proved to be
both exciting and enjoyable. The Giants consisting largely of juniors were beaten
by the valiant Yankees hut we met our defeat unilinchingly. Down through the
ages come the words "To the victor belong the spoils." True to the adage we pre-
sented to our victorious opponents the magnificent "Loving Cup" fprice ten centsl
which now stands beside our Basket Ball, Declamation and Agriculture trophies.
This year we anticipate more good times. Many of our numbers are taking
part in the Musical Comedy "Miss Cherxyblossonf' and we shall all be actively en-
gaged when we entertain the departing Seniors at the annual Junior-Senior banquet,
which we hope to make the crowning event of the school year.
As our elnss president Gladys Larson has proved herself a capable captain
and under the pilot-ship of our advisor Miss Falkeid we hope to pass into untroubled

THE SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
N the fall of 1920, a vast multitude of children entered the assembly
room and hesitantly took possession of the seats on the west side of the
room which were assigned to them. Everyone turned to look at them.
As we gazed our curiosity was soon satisiiedg they were, undoubtedly,
Freshmen and the Sophomores immediately began tormenting them.
The Freshmen bore it all with good grace and seemed to ndapt them-
selves to their new environment with mnrked rapidity. It was not long before they
actually seemed a part of Fosston High School.
They were determined to show what they could do. when we put on the car-
nival. They worked with a will and made their part of the entertainment the must
successful featvre of the evening financially. We knew then that they would be a
credit to Fosston High School in the years to come.
The banquet at which they entertained the Juniors proved to be v. social suc-
cess and was all the more remarl-'able considering the fact that the Freshmen had
never before attempted as daring an undertaking as n banquet. In a modest re-
tiring way they proved to us that they could accomplish anything they attempted.
The girls have proved theniselx es so capable all year that they were chosen
as waitresses for tlfe Junior-Senior banquet. No one could have served with more
quiet grace than tl'-ese fair maids of the class of '2-4.
As Sophomores they are now permanent members of our High School. Death
hast claimed two of their members-yet they live in memory and will never be for-
In athletics many of this class have shove. Not only did they play on the
football team. hut they went out for basketball. too.
At the Freshman initiation, the Soyihomores were bent on humiliating the
Freshmen by holding open crxurt and meting out punishment for such grave of-
fences as chewing gum, sleeping. whispev-iiirz. etc. The Freshmen, of course, had
been guilty of all these during school sessions.
This class had made n marked begriming :ind should continue, and graduate
with many more honors and as a class which will long be remembered.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
School. The very foundations of our grand old building seemed to
txattgr when this band of sixty tive came to take up their permanent
a o e.
They are imbued with seeming super intelligence which confounds
many of us. Their coniident manner of superiority has distinguished
them from other -classes from the very start. Seniors and Suphomores alike have
learned to step aside when a mob of "Freshies" go on their intermittent trips to the
We often wonder whether Fosston High SchoolA can ever teach them any-
thing-they really know it all, if we may judge by outward appearances, but as Bas-
sanio so wisely said, "things cannot be judged by outward appearances? perhaps we
had better defer our judgment of their knowledge until examination week.
It is a question in our minds whether Fosston High School will retain her tra-
ditional forms of etiquette or not. The Freshmen would seem to indicate that com-
mon courtesy and politeness are out of date.
Once a week the Freshmen deign to give us a rare treat-this happens when
they appear on the Current Events program. They arise with due alfectation and
proceed to astound their audience with their surprising information.
There are, in fact, many different types ul' students in this class, but when
they all get together, their intelligence shines above their stupidity. The present
collection are under Lhe care of Miss Dahlen and there are many hopeful signs that
the majority of them will reach the goal which they have in view.

Their cool deliberation and good judgment in managing the affairs of the school have

THE FOOTBALL SEASON
HE 1921 football season was noteworthy for the success attained against
the obstacles which arose. The players present at school at the begin-
ning of the year were willing and eager to play, but there were not
enough of them to do anything. Consequently they had to wait until
more of the fellows were back in school. Finally, after about a month,
the team got to work in earnest, Besides the late start, the team was
also hindered by a lack of materialg there was xx shortage of boys of sutlicient size
to be of value. A third obstacle was the scarcity of available teams with which to
playg all the games were with teams from quite a distance.
The first game of the season was with Crookston High School at Crookston.
We were defeated by a 'score of 53-7. In the first quarter Johnson had the misfor-
tune of breaking his nose. This weakened the team considerably. The first half
was very one-sidedg but in the second half Fosston scored seven points to Crook-
ston's thirteen. After this defeat the team did not lose courage, but hucked up and
got down to hard work, practicing every evening.
The second game was with Thief River Falls High School, at Fosston. This
game was loosely played by both sides. Forward passes were tried frequently, but
we were unlucky in completing them. Thief River won, 32-6. The Ada game,
which was to have been the ,next, was cancelled by Ada. This was a disappoint-
ment, for a close contest was expected.
On Armistice Day the team journeyed to the Northwest School of Agricul-
ture, where they were defeated by a score of 25-G. There was poor playing on both
sides, on account of the cold, disagreeable weather.
The East Grand Forks game was the best of the season. At the time, com-
parative scores gave East Grand Forks the best record in the district. The game
with them was hard fought, and ended in a tie, 7-7.
According to the games played towards the last, it was evident that we could
have had a very good team if we had had more practice before the schedule opened.
Although the football season was not a success from the standpoint of games won,
yet much credit is due the team and the coaches, Mr. Troxel and Mr. Fred Delbern,
for the excellent showing made in the face of odds.

fr SA' ASICETRALL has always been a major sport in Fosston High School. Our
V Q sehzol is noted for the production of fast, scrappy, clean basketball
M M teams: and they have represented the first- district at the state high school
A IL basketball tournament seven out 'of ten times. The first year of the
S965 tournament, 15113, they captured the state championship. Every year
they were beaten by the team who played in the finals and only by
small scores. lt is the popular saying- of the teanrs of other towns that Fosstou
athletes were taught to play basketball as soon as they could walk.
Prospects looked bright for a championship team t-his yearg with two of last
years regulars and two subs as si nucleus upon which to build a team. The first
game showed the old dash and pep. and everyone looked forward to a successful
season. The loss of 'llygesr-n weakened the team, and for various other reasons the
remaining: games showed a decline in the 'standard of playimr.
There was hardly a game nlayed in which one of the men were not sick or
crippled, during.: the latter part of the season. Despite the serious handicaps which
we were forced to undergo throughout the season, our team was never considered
out of the running' in the district tournament. Fosston was looked upon as a strong
team and 11 team which would fight to the finish. The team made a credible show-
ing: at the district tournament, despite the odds against them.
The season opened by a game with Erskine High School on the home fioor.
This game was an easy one for the home team. although thc visitors put up a good
scrap. The dual score was -12-12 in our favor.
On December ltith, the Bagley quint visited us and were defeated hy the
score of 53-0. During the holidays, January 4th, the team invaded the eastern ter-
ritory, and brought back one victory and one defeat. January -lth, they defeated
the Cass Lake team by the score of 27-20. On the way back they were defeated
by the Bemidji Normal School team, 17-25. These games were not conference
games and were taken more as a pleasure jaunt. On January 13th, the buys went
to McIntosh accompanied by about one hundred routers. Here they were defeated,-
13-15. Johnson, who had been on the sick-list for the preceeding week, was unable
to play more than the first tive minutes. Tygeson's absence was keenly felt and
this had much to do with the lack of the usual team-work. On January 20th, we
defeated Bagley High School at Bagley, by a score of 31 to 18.
Ada was the next battle on the home floor, January 27th. and they gave us
a thrilling battle. The score was tied until the last quarter, when the boys stepped
out and defeated thcm by a 29-19 margin. February 4th brought a different. Story
with a defeat by Croekston at Greokston by a score of 15-29. February 10 Thief
River was defeated on our home floor, by the score of 25-17.
The McIntosh team, with blood in their eyes, accompanied by a crowd of
rootcrs, arrived on February 14th. The game was fast but at no time was there
any doubt as to the outcome. The final score stood 1'i-3 in favor of Fosston.
February 17th the team was defeated by the Ada High School at Ada, by
the score of 12-15. On the way back they were beaten by the Crookston A.C. team,
16-37. Crookston visited Fosston l"ebruary 2-ith and won by the score of 10-15.
The first three quarters, the home team were in the lead. but by accurate shooting,
Crookstun overcame the lead and won by a tive point margin. I.
On March ilnd, the team journeyed to Crookston to take part in the District
Tournament. Here they were defeated by the district champions, Crookston.
Captain Solberg: was unable to do his best because of a broken nose which neces-
sitated his wearingr a mask. Although the score was large against us, 9-24, by com-
parative score, we had one of the best teams in the district, and by the Showing
that Crookston made at Carleton, we have a good record.
We hope that the teams of future years will live up to the Fosstou High
School record as we found it and left it: that of being fast, scrappy players and
good sportsmen. We wish them success in all their undertakings.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
Tho Student Council was orgnn-
ized in October, for the purpose of
representing the studont body in
forming: closer cooperation between
students and the faculty, and pro-
moting school spirit. The cfouncil
is nmde up of two reprcsentativns,
a buy and a girl, from each class,
and Mr. Shogren, as the faculty
member. This body elected officers
for the various High School orgznzi-
zations, and helped to plan several

terined such. It wus a good feed. the teachers suid. We ull lrathered around the
Dre nfterwards and sang' until the woods became dusky and we were all for getting
out of them us quickly as possible.
The townspeople entertained the teachers at fl formul reception in October. The
program given by them was delightful. After the program, dainty refreshments
were served nt small tables. The rooms were henutifully decorated in uutumn
leaves. The Senior girls assisted at this reception.
The Yanks were most royally entertained at the Giant and Yankee party. This
was given to the victors in the sale oi' Lyceum Course tickets. The dining' room was
cr-sily arranged us a den with many comfy chairs and the whole thing: bespoke of a
homelike atmosphere. After the program, the Giants presented the victors with a
"Tin" loving cup-to the victors belong the spoils. We can give them credit for
being entertainers even if they nren't salesmen.
The Freshmen initiation was a gathering of the entire Hieh School. Hair
rvisim: stunts terrified the Freshies. but they came through it without injury and n
whole let wiser. They now feel that they belong to the High School.
Our Beslfetball receptions this year were given for Ada. Thief River Falls nnd
C"o"ksIf-n. The first was given by tl-e Seniors and Sophomore-s for Ada. The Jun-
iors und Freshies put on the one for Thief River Falls. The last :ind by far the most
siu'crssi'l'l. given for Croolfston after they had beaten us on our home floor, was by
the entire High School. We showed that we were at least good losers.
The Home Training: clnss gave il series of dinners as practice work. They were
given for the focully, school lvourd und mothers of the girls. By the success of
these dinners, it must mean that the training received along those lilies was not lost

under the Smith-Hughes plan. This plan was organized by the Smith-
Hughes Act, which passed Congress in February 1917. It provides
that the Federal government shall give each state us much money as
that state spends for agriculuturul education. This money is in turn given to each
High School that meets the requirements of the law. Thus there are two dollars
available to the State, whereas-there would be only one available if the Smith-
Hughes law were not in etTect. Three fourths of the expenses of running the Agri-
Q XBHE Agricultural Department of the Fosston High School is conducted
cultural department of the High School is paid by this money, and one fourth by the
The students in the department attend classes for six months, where they re-
ceive instruction on how to raise crops and stock, how to test seed, how to test milk,
and various other farm practices. They learn how to make things needed on the
farm, for the school has n well equipped shop for this work. During this time they
decide whnt they are going to raise during the summer, and study out various proh-
lenis which they will meet.
During the other six months they curry out a project. This may he nn acre
of potatoes, an acre of corn, a calf, a group of poultry, or something similar. They
do all the work and are ndvised and helped hy the instructor, who visits their farms
during the summer. In the full their projects are figured up, and they write an uc-
eount of how they did all the work. They ure given their credit after their work is
finished and the reports are made.
By this plan farm boys who could not attend the regular High School, get a
chance to come in when work on the farm is slack. They are at home during the
busy season and are studying when they have leisure time. They are, at the same
time, studying something they are greatly interestd in, and something that will help
them when they are farming for themselves.
HE three acts of the musical comedy "Miss Cherryblossomn- occur in
Kokemo's Tea Garden in Tokyo, Japan. Cherryblossom, in reality,
Miss Evelyn Barnes of New York, at the death of her parents is left
by her fatlver's secretary in the care of a Japanese inn-keeper. Her
fathei-'s secretary uses her property for his own ends. When Cherry is
about eighteen the secretary returns to Japan with a party of Amerie
cans one of whom, John Henry Smith falls in love with Cherry and wishes to marry
her. Kokemo, however who has brought her up as his own daughter. wishes her to
marry Togo, a rich politician. The play centers around Jack's efforts to outwit
Kokomo and Togo. Finally Cherry learns her true identity, comes into her own
property, marries Jack. and all ends happily.
After weary weeks of practicing, the operetta was presented on March 253
first one obstacle and then another had retarded its performance before this time.
When finally presented, it was a great success and exceeded our highest hopes.
The parts were all taken splendidly and brought forth repeated huists of
applause from the audience. Parnel Hillestad. as Kokelno. was admirably suited
to his part and caused many outbursts of laughter by his ridiculous slips of language,
Marion Vaaler. as Cherryblossnm was u charming little Jap and proved herself equal
to the role. Walter Solberg, as the American hero delighted the audience with his
solos. The dances uhich he and Cherry performed were graceful and picturesque,
and seemed to fit into the atmosphere created by the scenery. The part of Togo,
a rich politician, was played by Adellor I.aVoi, who was in every respect a digni-
fied nctor. His difficult solos were sune with remarkable ease. Gladys Howe as
Jessica. nlensed the audience greatly and played her part well considerinr: the fact
that her special training had been limited to two days. This part was to have been
played by Bertha Vingaard who was unable to perform because of illness. Leon
Johnson took the part of Hnrry. the ardent lover and friend who was willing to "die
chuck full of rice" in order to heln his pal win Cherry.
Too much credit cannot be given Miss Falkeid and Miss MacNair who coached
the chorus and nrincinals untiringly, and worked out the artistic stage setting which
went to make Miss Cherryblossom one of the best, ii not the best, entertainment
Fosston High School has ever produced.

The fixst. two acts take place in the studio of Henry Brown and Paul Green: the
third is a bungalow in the Adirondacks. Paul and Henry are struggling to achieve
fame and bread-and-butter money in literature and art. Utter failure is their lot
until one of Henry's paintings, accidently displayed upside down, is enthusiastically
purchased by an art collector. Paul. following the same idea, writes his stories
backwards, and success follows swiftly. Some innocent fibs. told for reasons of
necessity, reach the newspapers and the pals find themselves headed for trouble.
Their love affairs go awry and in thc predicanients that follow as a result of their
playful propensity for spinning yarns they find success an empty thing. A woman
who claims to be Paul's wife, an elusive vanishing painting, a mysterious sea-faring
man, and a meddling landlady all contribute to the mix up. In the end the affailu
are untangled so that the play ends happily.

s'rA'rE Dx-:CLAMATION i '
REATER interest was evidenced in declamation this year than has been
shown for several years past. On the evening of January 25th the
High School Auditorium was crowded with high school students and
their friends who had come to hear the contestants in the preliminary
to the State district contest. Seven girls and six boys participated, and
the musical numbers of the program were furnished by the pupils of the
Intermediate grades. That the entire contest was of high caliber, was the opinion
of both the judges and the audience.
Hilda Vaaler won second place in the girls contest in her interpretation of
a cutting from "Anne of Green Gables" and was given the privilege of represent-
ing the school at the Red River Farm Crop Shows in Crookston. Marion Vaaler
secured first place with Longfellows "Famine Scene from Hiawatha."
In the oratorical contest Clarence Mittun won second place with Wilson's
"League for Peace" and Walter Solberg took first place with his rendition of Presi-
dent Harding's "address before the Disarmament Conference."
Then came the grind of preparation for the district divisional contest. The
original plan was to enter the Thief River division but owing to the fact that their
contest was posponed until March 10th, arrangements were made to join the east-
ern division at Bemidji. The contest was held at that place the evening of Feb. 21,
in the Methodist Church Auditorium.
The oratorical contest was held First. Considering the fact that it was Wol-
ter's first experience in declamatory work he gave his selection remarkably well,
and won fourth place in the judges' decision.
Marion was the sixteenth speaker. The audience had become restless, but
she gained their attention and held every listener thru the final word of her selec-
tion. She secured first place in the judges' decision, and Fosston may be well satis-
Hed that their contestant was undoubtedly the best altho she was thrown out of the
contest lay the committee in charge because of several seconds overtime. There
was a di erence of over three points between Marion's rating and that of the next
nearest claimant for first place.
The goodly number of lower classmen who entered declamation work gives
promise for a strong department in public speaking next year, and assurance that
we will continue to send winners to the various contests of the district.

In our melancholy assembly hall,
When the bell has rung its fmnl call,
The tardy pupils stealthily creep,
And into their seats, quickly sweep.
Then a continual, "May I speak?"
Even from those who are very meek.
Then with long, pale, gloomy faces,
The pupils to classrooms take their places.
Mysterious problems to solve and not so few,
In English, Geometry, Latin, History too.
No wonder pupils get so weary
Living a life so terribly dreary.
This is the program
the whole long year,
Which we endure without shedding a tear.
As for tests they come in showers
And they last for endless hours.
Oh, it seems our brains will crumble
When in the midst of such wo tumble.
