Paqe 5 i-.4 Page 6 FCDRWARD THE TALISMAN, the title for the Fosston High School Annual chosen by the Seniors of the Class of '45, has fittingly proved its popularity in so many ways that We, The Seniors of '46, feel We must carry on the work thus far so well advanced. We have spared no pains or efforts to make this issue one of the most enter- taining ever published. To this end we have included in it all those activities belonging to our school during the past year that time and space would permit, those We believed most richly merit- ing attention. ' In submitting this year's Talisman to its many readers We shall ask'no higher reward than to know it has pleased you: and, that in years to come it will serve to bring back to your memories the most pleasant years of all-those spent in the Fosston High School. And may each one of you, Seniors of '46, wherever you may cast your lot, feel and live faithful toe- Out of the nigh! that l'0'lf'l'l'S mv, Bind: as the pil from pole to pole,- 1 thunk wlmtever Fales may be For my miconquernble soul!

Iohnson Miss Wennerstrom The long road is over for the seniors of 1946, but there have been several exciting events throughout our school years, which We will vividly remember. The lunior-Senior Prom ot 1945, of which we Were in charge, was a big success. Our class was well represented in football and basketball. We also have a cheerleader from our class. Many of the students have taken part in the various music groups. Our class will be one oi the smaller graduating classes oi Fosston. , Motto: The way is hard, but the prize is great. Class colors: Sky blue and silver. Class flower: Red Carnation. Page l 8 CLASSES , I v- 'V .t TAG. - . VALEDICTORIAN SALUTATORIAN HONOR STUDENTS The outstanding students of each graduating class are those students who because of intelligent use of their time and energies have attained scholastic success. Those who rate as the first ten in scholastic standings for the senior class are: Ruth Engan Donald Olson Blanche Bergh Opal Thomas Margaret Haugen Alene Rystad Arlene Ekeland Thelma Thompson Margaret Siol Elaine Tangen Ruth Engan is valedictorian and has an average of 94.05. Blanche Bergh with an average of 93.82 is the salutatorian.

All ten of the honor students will find that their success in high school will greatly enhance their success in the post-graduate years to come. FOSSTON HIGH SCHOOL There is a seat of learning A challenge to go onward, That sends its rays of light To hold the torch on high, In ever clearer vistas Till civic virtues flourish To beautify the night. And men to God draw nigh. ln twilight men are living, A symphony of kindness, And weighted down by chains. Of love and brotherhood To you, dear Fosston High School, Transforms our schools to beacons, This clarion call contains, O, Fosston High, you're good! -Iennie Wennerstrom CLASSES Page 19 L. ,77 , Bottom row: K.

The Fosston Chapter of the Future Farmers of America was first organized twelve years ago as an inter-curricular activity of the Vocational Agriculture students. The organization is operating on the principle of combining educa- tion and recreation for the good of the students and the community. Many varied activities are sponsored by the Chapter for the development of leadership, the building of a more permanent agriculture, and the improve- ment of country life. A few of these include garden seed sales, milk testing, Rural School Day, Community Canning for War Relief, basketball, soft ball, picnics, and banquets. The high ideals of the organization are clearly explained in the motto: Learning to do Doing to learn Earning to live Living to serve.

He played left end. Philip Megorden-A senior who played right halfback. Dick Wynne-A sophomore who played quarterback. Charles Aakhuswlk freshman who played center. Roy Biornerud-A junior who played right end. When Coach Bohnsack issued his first call for candidates for the 1946 foot- ball team, 15 men drew suits. Of this number 9 Were veterans and many of the others were promising young players. The Greyhounds again played six-man football in place of the regular eleven-man which had been played every other year. ATHLETICS Page 41 , . . , 4 if 3, . g..,vf.c5x.,,, RESUME OE THE FOOTBALL SEASON The 1946 football season got under way in September, when our boys put up a stiff fight against the strong Mahnomen team. Although the game was played on our home field, the final score stood 25-U in favor of Mahnornen. The second game was with Gonviclc. Improvement was marked. This game was a victory for our boys with the score standing at 32-12. The next game was with Mahnomen. The game was loosely played by both sides. Forward passes were tried frequently, but were unlucky in com- pleting them. Mahnomen won 32-U. We met McIntosh on their field October 19. Both sides put up a hard fight. The score was 13-U, but those thirteen points meant sweat and blood, as our boys played an outstanding defensive game. The Climax of the football season was reached when Fosston again met Mclntosh. Although we lost 18-l4 it was a thrilling game. Both sides were on their toes and that ball was really kept red hot. According to the games we played towards the last, it was evident that we could have had a better 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 to the team and the coaches, Mr. Bohn- sack and "Daisey" Hagen for the excellent showing made in the face of odds.

His quick of- fensive fake is his best bet and he scores continuously by using it. Ronnie "Goopy" Olson-"Push Shot Artist"-One of the team's three leading scorers, very aggressive play. Best year coming up. Boy "Gus" Bjornerud-Team's leading scorer and one of the most aggressive men on the squad, Hit the jackpot in the Bagley game with a 21 point total. Best year coming up. Richard "Dickie" Wynne-Defensive playing is his key point. Did cf fine iob as a sopho- more regular. William "Billy" LaVoi-The speed merchant of the team. Team's leading "Ball Hawk" and scored many a bucket as a result of his "stealing" tactics. Donald "Dude" Bakken-Fastest man on the squad. Turned in a stellar game against Bemidji and ended up high point man with 10 points, Harold "Boogie" Berglund-+Best defensive rebound man on the squad. Coaches' dream as far as attitude is concerned. Too bad it is his last year for F. H. S. Glenn Whaley--A comin' with a natural one hand push shot. We will hear a lot of Whaley in the next two years. Charles "Chat" Aakhus-One Freshman on the squad lettered in his first years. Should have an excellent athletic future. Clifford "Kippy" Norden-"Midget of the squad" but makes up for his size with speed and attitude. X ATHLETICS Page 43 BASKETBALL RESUME The season officially began Tuesday, November 27, when Bemidji came to F osston and defeated the Greyhounds by 35-21 in an exciting ball game. Friday, November 30, our boys played at Thief River where they played the Prowlers in a close game, losing by a 33-30 count. Gonvick tasted defeat at the hands of the Greyhounds who beat them by a score of 55-23. lt was a big scoring night for the team. Coach Lagather was unable to accompany the boys on account of illness. A A big throng of enthusiastic rooters and the band accompanied our team to Crookston, on December 7. Our team lost by a 29-27. It was a thrilling game of good basketball. On December 11, the boys journeyed to Erskine where they gave last year's district champions a real tussle. Our team lost this one by a score of 35-27. Mclntosh invaded our court and caught our team in one of its off nights on December 14. We were beaten by 21-10, the lowest score our team was held down to all season. During Christmas season, Coach Lagather scheduled a game with a good Morris High School quint. They won the ball game, but had to give their best to do so. Mentor defeated our team on their floor Ianuary 9 by a score of 34-22. The Greyhounds came back and handed Crookston a 27-21 defeat the following Friday, Ianuary ll. It was a big night for Roy Bionerud who hit the net for a high score. Our team lost a heart breaker at Cass Lake the following Tuesday, Ianuary 15, when the Cass Lake aggregation nipped our team by a 29-27 score. Roseau was just too good for our boys the following Friday, Ianuary 18. Iourneying north, our boys came home on the short end of a 39-19 score. Erskine did it again defeating the Greyhounds on our court by a 35-22 score. And then Clearbrook followed suit by defeating our boys by a 39-33 score on their floor on Friday, lanuary 25. The inexperienced Greyhounds showed improvement in handing Thief River Falls a 31-27 defeat at our gym, Ianuary 29. Page 44 ATHLETICS On Friday, February 1, our team journeyed to Bagley and in one of the most exciting games of the season lost by a score of 35-34. The Greyhounds gained another victory, Friday, February 8, defeating the leading conference team, Clearbrook, by a decisive 35-17 score. McIntosh was all set for the Greyhounds Friday, February 15 and won by a 25-19 score in an exciting game before a capacity throng. A double header was played at our gym Tuesday, February 19. The Grey- hounds won both contests defeating Gonvick 59-28 and Mentor 39-25. Friday, February 22, Bagley came here and eked out a win in the final minute of play, defeating us by a 29-28 score. Tournament play started February 28, our first opponent being Clearbrook. The game was hard fought in that both teams had won a game apieceearlier in the season. Our team was defeated by a 33-29 score. The Greyhounds won the consolation honor by beating Mentor by a 44-28 score. So ended the season for the Greyhounds. Berglund and Hagen will be missing from the squad next year. Promising material and a year's experience will undoubtedly make the Greyhounds a strong contender next year. To next year's best team, best wishes for a successful season. ATHLETICS Page 45 G. A. A. President ..... ....

Band Members Page 59 Tl-IE l-ICDIVIECCDIVIING The grid clash was the climax of the series of homecoming activities touched off October 31, on Wednesday evening when Mclntosh paid a visit to Fosston. At 11:00 that night they burned down the pile of material which had been collected for the Thursday night traditional bonfire. On Thursday evening after everyone had gathered together a bigger and better pile, the band marched around town and the rest of the student body snake-danced after them. A circle was formed in front of the theater and everyone yelled some of our school yells. The main feature of the evening was the burning of "Sleepy HolloW." On Friday afternoon the upper four classes proudly displayed their floats. At the half, the Seniors were presented with a gift for having the most outstand- ing float. The game on Friday was played on a cold and bleak afternoon with in- termittent snow flurries. The boys put up some stiff opposition only to lose to Mclntosh by a score of 18-14. At half time the Coronation of the homecoming king and queen was per- formed. A candidate from each of the four upper classes was chosen to take part in the contest. The junior entrant, Gladys Brenna won the honor as queen, Alvin Hagen, a freshman, won the honor as king. The annual Homecoming dance was held on Friday evening. lt was Well attended by all and proved to be a great success.
