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.

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 Jeers. 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 Glee Club. 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 long remember. 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 seas.

Page Tyenty-three FE 'll digit 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- go. en. 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.

P fy, n Q' 4 A s...s 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 drinking fountain. 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.

Hancock has successfully sewed for fifteen years. The length of these terms shows the appreciation of their services by the people of the coni- niunity. , Pa ge Twenty-eight ! ff' 5 QTL!

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. Pu ge Thirty-two FK AG, ,,..A BASKETBALL, 1921-1922 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. P age Thirty-three u I, .

This gave our szam the undisputed championship of northwestern Minnesota and eastern North akota. The district tournament furnished no opposition whatever. We duly won the right to represent the first district at the State Tournament. Two rnambers of the team were selected for the all-conference quint, Captain Olson at guard and Sol- berg at forward. At Northfield we made a creditable showing, losing to New Ulm, the runner up, by n close score 29-25. The team ran up a total score of 597 points during the season against a total of 262 gained by the opponents.

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 social events. 'Wk ..--a s--, Around n spooky fire in the dark woods, the Cnmn Fire Girls entertained the teachers at n "weinie" roast. This was the openiln.: of socizil events if it may be 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 on them.

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 School district. 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. Page Forty-one yi! lk rf Q ,, "MISS CHERRYBLOSSOMH 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.

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. Page Forty-two 1, I I 4" is e 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.

RED RIVER ' ' T VALLEY FARM CROP SHOW Mathias Landsverk, Clilford Lee and George Landsverk formed the Corn and Potato judging- team that so ably repre- sented Fosston at the Red River Valley Winter Shows in Crookston on Febru- ary sixth. Their ac- curateand intelliient judging' wonfort em first place as a Corn and Potato judging team. They brought buck a silver loving cup as their reward. This is the first year that it has been awarded to Fosston High School, but it may remain here per- manently if we win it for three years. r I 1 I In connection with the Red River Corn Crop Show held at Grookston, on February sixth, a declamatinn contest was also held in which representatives from the various districts participated. At the elimination contest held earli- er in the year, Hilda Vaaler, our representative, won first place. This gave her opnrtunity of tak- ing part in the final contest on February sixth. As her selection she gave a cutting: from 4'Anne of Green Gables." Her selection won first place and the silver lov- ing cup, which remains with the winner for one year. If it is won by the same school three times, it belongs to that school. This is the first time that Fosstzm has won the cupbut we hope it is not the last.
