We, the class of '38 have arrived at the
point in our lives when we inevitably
pause a moment to reflect on the past
four short years, which for us are so
full of memories.
Getting acquainted with scores of new
people was an early experience, the mem-
ory of which we shall always cherish.
Classes,study hours and extra-curricular
activities are all an integral part of
our memory. To insure the permanency of
these incidents we hereby edit this
Symbolic of our past and future aim is
our motto 'Onward and Upwardh. As we
look ahead the paths to our varied goals
seem steep but that matters not, we have
worlds to conquer and progress to make
so we shall forge ahead always N0n ard

On a bright September morning, as nine bells sounded, the Captains shouted,
N111 hands on deck,' and the call was responded to by the sixty-seven members
of the crew of the nGood Ship Junior Class,n all set to launch out on a joyous
cruise on the sea of Juniordom.
First the crew elected as captain, Bettie Walquist. Marita Witucki was elected
first mate KV1ce President! and Ruth Ott was elected second mate fTreasurer7.
Lester Anton was elected Log Keeper CSecretaryJ. To Alice Annett went the
position of Chief Steward lSenatorJ. Then, the crew set its course by the help
of the guiding stars Kadvisors, Miss Cleary and Mr. Otisl and set anchors aweigh
and spirits high and sailed enthusiastically out into a sea of adventure and
Taking the high waves along with the low waves, the Junior ship of state stirred
up the High School Ocean by its unboundless enthusiasm at each port predomin-
ated. Pom-poms were sold, and the school was made aware of the games by the de-
corations and announcements.
Similar activities took place at the winter port of UBasket Ba1l.N The HGood
Ship Junior Class' docked and spread its pep spirit by decorating the gym with
the schoo1's colors and also its opponent's and added to the interest of the
crowd by distributing programs.
On March 4th as the ship sailed out on to the full sea many of the crew had
occasion to WRemember the Dayn. Valdo Uhristenson and Helen Protosavage led the
ship to the port of success again, with the help of a good supporting crew.
Soon afterward, the Junior Class dropped anchor, lowered its sails, and drifted
on the calm sea. But ---- a storm came up, and in the excitement, those piratical
Freshmen stole on board and captured five members of the crew. Undaunted, the
captain sent out a life boat, reclaimed its members, and set out on a more dan-
gerous C?J mission ---- the guest cruise for the Senior director CProm Chairmanl.
He named Pearl Hansen, Marita Wituoki, Helen Protosavage, Elwood Pearson, stew-
ards with a great cast of assistants.
So ---- as a grand finale---the 'Good Ship Junior Classn, after a prosperous year,
sailed into a port of rest before its 1958 Journey into the Land or Seniordom.

Two years have passed for the Sophomores under the kindly guidance of Miss.Lee
and Mr. Braun, and this year finds them wiser, happier and more ambitious than
last. They are Sophomores with a capital WSH.
Leif Amundson has been given the honor of the presidential term of one year, and
Mildred Fleming takes the position of vice-president. Very faithfully Lanore
St. Angelo fulfills the responsible duties of both secretary and treasurer.Last,
but not least, Clifton Anderson holds the position of class senator.
Initiating the Freshmen was one of the Sophomore 'red letter' days although the
former would be apt to dispute it. The two classes met in the high school
gymnasium where the initiation took place and were later Joined by the upper
classmen in an all-school dance.
The great social event of the year was a pie social held in November in 1957.
The girls brought the pies and the boys bought them. More blushes! Auctioneer
on that memorable day was the class Wclownu, Alex Martin and our principal, Mr.
The sophomore class has been, and is well-represented in baseball, football
and basketball. Most of the second team in basketball is made up of sophomores,
and Reynold Westlund, is on the first team.
The class was represented by Ambrose Berry, Max Lindh, Clifton Anderson and
Bernice Fortmann in debate. We're looking forward to big things from them.
Phyllis Burgess and Mertyce Christensen were out for forensics. We have several
sophomores in the Girl Scout troop.
Robert Fleming, Harvey Berquist, Leif Amundson, James Kreutzian, and Gerald
0'Donnell show promise of being good boxers. The sophomore class, we believe,
has active members in every organization.
The sophomore program to be given to the assembly on March 29 is called, WA Day
On The Radion. The program tells about the trials and successes of the radio
squad. With it the sophomores hope to win the prize for the best assembly
program. This will undoubtedly be the climax of the year and the sophomores
will be off for their vacation.

Untrue to tradition the Freshmen class did not remain Wuneduoatedn very long,
but responded favorable in less than a month to the change in their environment.
On September 25, they took first place for nGoin' To Town,' their float in the
Community Fair Parade. It exemplefied a family of nine who were making their
first adventure from the country to the city. Sam Jones, as the mother, and
Ernest Brabec, as the father, with Harold Olson, as the baby sat in the gront
seat of an old car. Lillian Williams, and Betty Larsen, the twins, were being
cared for by Norma Lindh in the rumble seat. Gerald Knauber and Earl Karl rode
on the fenders taking care of the chickens, which were in a crate. The car was
laden with egg crates, sacks of grain, and melons.
The formal welcome was given the Freshmen by the Sophomores at the initiation in
October. The Freshmen returned a party in November. The boys and girls were
divided into four groups of schoolsg they chose the following namesg The Canary
High School, The Greenapple High, The Strawberry High School, and the Baby Blue
High School. Each school chose students to compete in various contests, which
were Judged by three Judges.
The inter-class basketball tournament was not wholly unsuccessful. They lost
to the Sophomores, but defeated the Juniors.
Our President, Vivian Wirtzfeld, moved to Dallas, the second semester, the
vacancy was filled by Georgia Coburn.
In accordance with the season, an Easter theme was chosen for the annual
assembly program, which was givenfapril 14, the day before Easter vacation. The
members of the committee in charge of the presentation were Norma Lindh, Georgia
Coburn, Marilyn Johnson, LeRoy Elfstrom, and Edna Paulson.
Some Freshmen gained recognition their first year in high school. We have LeRoy
Elfstrom, Harold Olson, Raymond Jeffrey, and Lawerence Hansen in Boxing, Elaine
Casperson in deolamg Marilyn Johnson, alternate in debateg Ernest Brabec, as a
tenor soloistg Velva Hansen as cheerleader: Georgia Coburn in tunblingg Iary
Dickenson as a poetg Lloyd Brown and Lawerence Swanson as future basketball

this year, due to the very competant direction of Richard Laursen. Members at
this writing, are looking forward to the district music meet to be held at
Rice Lake in April, while at the same time they are busy preparing for the
musical program which they will present jointly with the Graded School, on March
Perhaps the most active members are the group which comprise the 'PepN band that
has enlivened our basket ball games.
Since a number of the band members are from the graded school and are already
players of some merit, we are looking forward to having a first class
organization in the future.
The Orchestra has demonstrated its ability at several of our school functions.
It is directed by Mr. Laursen.

OCTET GIRLS' CLEE CLUB
The Octet is a new vocal group introduced into Frederic this year under the dir-
ection of Miss Meyer. The main purpose of this group is to sing at school
functions when it is impossible for a large group to be present. They have also
sung at several other schools and churches.
There are eight girls who belong to this organization. Two sopranos, two second
sopranos and four altos.
The Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Meyer, has been working hard this
year. The club is smaller this year than previously and is composed largely of
Sophomores and Juniors with a few Freshmen and Seniors for variety.
The club, at this writing, is looking forward with great anticipation to the
music contest, which is to be held at Rice Lake, May 6-7. They hope to improve
over their B ranking of last year to one of A this year.

This is yet a very young organization, having started at the beginning of the
second semester. The lusicale, on larch 18th, gave them their first opportunity
to sing before the public. On larch 26th, the Chorus had a pleasant trip to
Superior where they sang under the direction of Ashanbrenner.
The Mixed Chorus is going to the distrio contest which will be held at Rice
Lake this year. This is the first time the Chorus has been entered.
The membership of this organization numbers twenty-four. Seven of them will be
graduating this year. The number of Freshmen that Joined looks very PI'0U1i51n8-
The Pep Band is an organization which has enlivened our basketball games this
year and helped to give us a little more school spirit. This little band is
a group selected from the regular band and is always on hand to entertain.

GIRL SCOUTS BUY SCOUT
The Girl Scouts have been stressing scout activities during the past year and
every girl must become a registered second class scout.
The Girl Scouts used several new ways of making money this year. They conducted
a stew sale on the day of the dog derby. The same day was the occasion of the
annual debate tournament and they served a luncheon for the debatere attending
from the various schools. In the beginning of the year the Future Farmers
cooperated in the presentation of a play 'Hurdered A11ve'.
The Boy Scouts have been very active this year. They have given several public
demonstrations on scout work. Hikes and social activities have periodically
varied the program.
Tne scouts, at present, are diligently practicing for the annual Spring Round-Up
when they will compete in the 'fire by frictionn and 'wig-wag' signalling

P OT0 CL B
Amateur photography is a rapidly growing hobby in this school as well as in all
other parts of the country. It holds a fascination for those who are willing tc
run the full gauntlet of the many failures that come with learning a new
technique. That satisfaction is realized when a creation all one's own suddenly
appears out of the developer and the thrill that comes from seeing those
finished pictures, personally nursed through all the stages of developing from
the exposing to the squeegeeing, safely mounted in their rightful place in an
album. Many of the members have found this hobby so interesting that they are
building darkrooms in their own homes fwe'll bet many a mother will rue the mess
they makel. It is hoped this work here in school may lega some to a lifetime
hobby or even a vocation.
An interesting phase of photography is that of enlarging small negatives or
parts of negatives into large pictures. Unnoticed detail, new expressions, new
emphases appear in the enlargements that are completely lost in the smaller
prints. The club is looking forward to next year when it can launch a full
program of camera hikes, picture contests, and dark room activities.

F STOCK JUDCI C
The Frederic Chapter participated in the annual Stock Judging Contest for the
eighth consecutive year. The Stock Judgers were, Kenneth Wed1n,Dale Knauber and
Michael Marten, while Lawrence Johnson and Leon Ericson took part in the Farm
Facts Contest and represented the Chapter at the annual F. F. A. Convention.
Much interest was shown in ping-pong and a tournament was held in which Bill
Engstrom won the upper-classmen championship and Gerald Knauber the championship
of the lower classmen.
This year our chapter has a strong basketball team. We played our first game on
the home floor with Webster and won with a score of 26 to 10. We returned the
game at Webster where we were again victourous by score of 29 to 24. Grantsburg
came down to meet our squad on our home floor, where we easily won the game, the
final score being 26 to 15. We began the tournament by playing a game with
Milltown but due to an unexpected change in rules through which we lost two of
and with the absence of another player we lost the game by a score of 27 to 20,
still have high hopes of winning the consolation cup.

The purpose of the CFU club is to sponsor better sportsmanship and good fellow-
ship among the athletes.
Every year they make arrangements and conduct the athletic banquet. At the
present time they are advertising for the boxing matches. They will probably put
on an annual vodvil every year from now on as an athletic benefit.
The purpose of the H1-Y is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school
and community the highest standards of Christian character.
Inspired by this aim, and led by Hr. Buske and our officers, the Frederic H1-Y
club has worked earnestly through its second year as an activity in this school.
The club has had a very busy year. It has offered a varied program. Beginning
with an outing at Spirit Lake last fall where the year's program was worked out,
we held discussion groups on topics such as lar and Prohibition. le also had
some interesting talks by Hr. Glynn and Dr. Arveson. March 21 we plan to have
a banquet and, later in the spring, we will hold our first joint meeting with
another H1-Y Club. We are planning a Picnic with the Webster High School group.

The purpose of the Bibliotek Club, a newly formed girls' organization in school
for those who work in the library and are interested in books, is to make the
library a more cheerful place in high school, to promote the girls' interest in
books, and to provide an opportunity for companionship among the girls.
The first activity of the group was the Book Week celebration, for November
15th to the 20th. The library and the bulletin boards were decorated with book
displays, and new books were put out for inspection. Contests were conducted to
decide what students should have first chance at reading the new books. On Mon-
day, November 15, the girls entertained the high school and grade school facul-
ties, the village library board members, and the school board at the tea in the
library. The two honorary members of the club, Mrs.Morr1s Buske and Miss Doris
Shella, poured tea. The club officers and advisor Miss Cleary were in the re-
At Christmas time, the girls decorated the library with seasonal designs, and
gave hand-painted book marks to each student.
In keeping with their interests in books, the girls gave a skit from Little
Women as their part in the Vodvil, with Helen Protosavage taking the part of Jo
Grace Sederlund the part of Meg, Myrtle Summers the part of Beth and Doris
Beckmark the part of Amy.
Throughout the year, work meetings were held, at which the girls mended books,
took inventory, and learned about the many phases of library work. After sever-
al of these meetings, supper parties were held.
The Spring activities of the Biblioteks will be a trip to some of the large lib-
raries in the vicinity.

skating, skiing, tobogganing, sleighing, ballroom dancing, tennis, bicycling,
horseback riding, and ping-pongg the number of points given for each individual

The development of the art of public speaking has been an activity carried on in
the Frederic High School for a number of years. The four types of public speak-
ing coached are: declamatory, oratory, extemporaneous reading and speaking.
This year there has been a great deal of interest shown in this work, five for
declamatory, five in extemporaneous reading, four in oratory, and three for

The 1957-1958 debate season opened with four speakers back from the first squad
of last year. A total of twenty-four people went out for the debate team when
the season started in the middle of October, and began work on the question
uUnicamera1ism versus Bicameral1sm.N
After two weeks of preparation, the squad was divided into two man teams which
went through a schedule of debates with themselves. This was completed by
November 20, when a banquet was held for the debators. Mr. Buske announced the
first squad would be composed of Lucille Walsten, Lillian Fortmann, Pearl
Anderson, Alice Annett, Ralph Trumble, Clifton Anderson, Elayne Casperson, and
Marilyn Johnson. The entire squad, however, continued at work, and began
debating outside schools by November 5.
The next two months were busy ones. The team played host to Amery, Spooner,
and St. Croix here on November 5, and traveled to Amery, River Falls, New
Richmond, Eau Claire, and St. Croix for debate. At a New Richmond tournament
both Pearl and Lucille were on teams which went into the quarter-finals.
Pearl lost, but Lucille was not eliminated until the semi-finals.
One of the pleasantest and most profitable excursions of all was a trip to the
Hill Library in St. Paul on December 22. By this time every person out for
debate had been in at least one contest with another school.
After Christmas, the teams had one tria gular meet here, and went to the
Spooner tournament, January 22. The teams won three and lost three, showing
the need of more study. All but the six going to Chippewa were excused from
further work, and the squad put in two weeks of careful work at home. Then
came the annual tournament at Frederic, on February 12, which was non
By February 18, the teams were ready for the high point of the season-the trip
to Chippewa Falls. The team enjoyed its stay at the Northern, and enjoyed
still more repeating last year's performance of five victories and one defeat
in the preliminary rounds. The 'negative defeated Bloomer, Rice Lake, and
Baldwin, and the affirmative won from Augusta and Superior-Central, but lost
to River Falls. In the semi-finals Frederic was eliminated by Eau Claire,
winner of the tournament the past four years.
Next year's prospects look good. At least ten experienced debators will regain.
The team will, however, sorely miss Lillian Fortmann and Lucille Walsten. o

The team met St. Croix Falls on Community Fair Day at Frederic for their first
game of the season. St. Croix being one of our bitterest rivals made the boys
more determined to win than ever. Although trailing on the short end of the
score 6-O at the half the boys came out strong in the third quarter. Both teams
were unable to score in the rest of the game and so the game ended in a tie by a
score of 6-6.
The team west after their first victory of the season when they journeyed to
Osceola. Both teams played on even terms in the first half. But Frederic came
out in the third quarter to score the only touchdown of the game. The score was
in doubt until the final whistle and our team had a victory of 6-O.
Seeking to get into the ruin column again the team faced the frenohmen from
Somerset. The Somerset team though lighter than our boys put up a great fight
but could not withstand the much stronger attack of Frederio's eleven. The
final score was 12-0 in our favor.
Frederic lost to Amery by a score of 18-O. This was a night game and the first
one played by our team under the lights. It seemed very queer to play with a
white ball and to see darkness outside the field. I don't think this affected
the score any. With a little more drive and better defensive playing we could
have made a good game out of it.
The greatest defeat suffered by our team was with Grantsburg. Their excellent
running attack and defense seemed too much for us so we bowed to them by a score
of 61-O. This is one of the games we would have especially liked to win, but we
didn't seem to have what it took to win.
A new lineup was started at the beginning of the Shell Lake game. Many of the
boys were playing their first game. Their lead of 21-O at the first half was
not so great considering the inexperience of some of our team mates. In the
second half the old lineup was started which worked together very well and also
outplayed Shell Lake. We fell short of winning by one touchdown. If the game
would have lasted a few minutes longer, I think we would have won.
Frederic lost its last game of the season to Milltown. This was the last game
for all the Seniors. We all tried hard to win it, but in spite of this we got
beat 7-9. We can all look back on the games we have played together, but we
oan't play them over much as we would like to.
VERN WIKSTROM---Senior---He kicked and passed besides being a ball carrier, and
ELLSWORTH GLANDIER---Junior---A shifty ball carrier who has plenty of ability to
go places his senior year.
KICTOR WEINZIERL---Junior---WVICN developed into a very fine football player by
the end of the season. With continued improvement he should be one of Frederic's
GERALD O'DONNELL---Sophomore--Gerald is a new man who showed promise in kicking,
passing, and ball running.
HARVEY BERQUIST---Sophomore---Harvey seems to understand that football is a
great game which should enjoy playing hard and clean.
LEON ERICSON---Senior---Leon really loved football and had a very fine attitude.
He tried to play to the fullest extent of his ability at all times, which is a
trait that is necessary in all good athletes.
WILLIS WILLIAMS---Senior---Frederic's ace catcher whose services, offensively,
will be missed next year.
GORDON RENO---Sophomore---Gordon plays tackle and should be a valuable man if he
improves as much as he has during the past year.
ROY PETERSEN---Senior---Co-Captain and a hard working athlete who will be missed
for his blocking and defensive ability.
JOHN SMITH---Senior---A senior and tackle who was most effective when slashing
in on defense. Also a Co-Captain of the team.

CHARLES FERGUSON---Sophomore---Charles played and was fairly successful and with
a little more fight would be poison to Frederic's opponents.
KENNETH WEDIN---Senior---A consistently hard worker who was always doing his
JUNIOR STRUCK---Senior---A hard running ball carrier who was always a threat.
RAYHOND NELSON---Junior---Ray played center and, for a new man, caught on to the
game of football rather quickly. He has the physical qualities which are found
in natural athletes.
ALEX MARTIN---Sophomore---Alex saw enough action to show that, with a little
polish, he could be an exceptional blocking back.
MARVIN GRIHH---Sophomore---Marvin played the latter part of the game and gave a
gina showing. With continued improvement he should be a good kicker and a full

ROY PETERSEN---Senior---Roy was the hard working captain of the basketball team.
He was a true sportsman and a great fellow.
ELLSWORTH GLANDIER---Junior---'BUDH was an all around ball player who, at times,
showed promise of developing into one of Freder1c's outstanding basketball play-
EUGENE WIGDAHL---Senior---With few exceptions, Eugene could be considered Fred-
eric's best ball handler for the 1937-1958 season. His success was probably due
to mastering the fundamentals of basketball.
JAMES CARAGAN---Sophomore---Jim is a new man, who showed great possibilities
with increased effort.
ROY PELRSON---Senior---Roy portrayed that fight which is necessary if an athlete
is to do his best at all times.
KENNETH WEDIN---Senior---Kenneth was a hard working basketball player with whom
it was a pleasure to work. Frederic will loose one of its most cooperative
athletes in Kenneth's graduation.
WILLIS WILLIAMS---Senior---Willis was a consistent basketball player who was
strong on defense as well as being an offensive threat. He played probably,
his best in the final game of the season against Webster.
REYNOLD WESTLUND---Sophomore---Reynold was a new addition to the club during the
last few games and gave a fine account of himself. With continued improvement,
Reynold should develop into one of Freder1c's smoothest basketball players.

LEONARD HALLQUIST---After a slow start at the beginning of the season, Leonard
found himself and came through with some fine basketball in the final games.
WILLIAM TAYLOR---Bill was one of the scrappiest players on the second team all
season. He should make a good man for next year.
HARVEY BERQUIST---Harvey displayed lots of drive and fight all season. He will
be a much better player with each succeeding game.
JAMES BARNHART---Jim was our best defensive player and most consistent man on
the squad. Jim will be a big help next year.
ROBERT FLEMING--QBob fitted in nicely at a forward position. He displayed lots
of fight and pep. Bob lifted the team spirits up in spite of defeat.
HERLE ERICKSON---Merle was a valuable utility man and showed some good basket
ball when it was necessary.
MARVIN GRIMH---Marvin proved to be a fine passer and defensive man. He is the
coolest player under fire of the entire squad.
LLOYD BROWN---Lloyd used his height to good advantage in the games he got in..
With more experience he should develop into a fine player.
GORDON RENO---Gordon proved to be a dependable guard in several games. He has
the ability to get in under the opponent's basket and come up with the ball.
ALEX HARTIN---Alex should come through with some good basketball before he is
through at Frederic High School.

The mysterious stranger ---- Vern Wikstrom
uMurdered Aliven is a mystery comedy in three acts. The story centers aroun
the solving of the murder of Marvin Ryder.
In the first act, the people expecting to be mentioned in the will of Marvin
Ryder have gathered at his home, NH11lcrestu to hear the will read. It was
believed that Marvin Ryder was killed in the wreck his body was found in. From
the lawyer they learn the astounding fact that Marvin Ryder was murdered with
criminal intent. All this time, mysterious things have been happening at the
Ryder home with queer noises and things disappearing.
During the second act the strange things continue and Arden Ryder talks to her
fiance, Warner Melton, whom her mother detests and distrusts. He informs Arden
that he was the last one to talk to Marvin Ryder before he left on the trip and
that they quarreled bitterly. Tillie Meek, the maid, overhears this conversa-
tion and exposes this information and this points to Warner as the guilty one.
The third act is climaxed when Marvin Ryder returns, apparently unhurt and
explains everything. He and Warner Melton had been working on an invention to-
gether and this explained the mysterious noises at 'H111crest.W Marvin had
engaged a new chauffeur and they had only gone a few miles when the chauffeur
held him up and left him unconcious. With money and clothes gone, he donned the
chauffeur's clothes and lived as a hermit during these days in order to complete

Being the unimportant daughter of a socially minded mother who centered her
efforts on her older and more attractive daughter, Grace, nThe Patsyn was left
to devise her own way of attracting attention. Much to the confusion of the rest
of the family, Patricia practiced on them wise and witty sayings, which she has
memorized from a book she studied in secret.
The one person HThe Patsyn wished to impress was Tony who was oblivious of her
existance, because he was in love with Grace. Unsuspected support comes to nThe
Patsyn when her hitherto meek father champions her cause and aids her in getting
Tony to notice her, and forget Grace. Meanwhile, Grace after a quarrel with
Billy, decides she wants Tony back, but her scheme to regain his affections
fails. She finally patches matters up with Billy and Patricia gets Tony.
Highlights of this three-act comedy were scenes such as the one where Tony
coaches Patricia in the art of getting her man, when he didn't know that he was
the potential victimg the scene where Patsy, after a life of submission dares
to tell Grace 'That everything is a case of mind over matter dear1e.H Patsy
doesn't mind because Grace doesn't matter. It is a pleasure to see domineer-
ing Mrs. Harrington eventually subdued and the play ends happily.

One by one the sands are flowing,
One by one the moments fall,
Some are coming, some are going,
Do not strive to grasp them all.
One by one thy duties wait thee,
Let thy whole strength go to each,
Let no future dreams elate thee,
Learn thou first what these can teach
One by one thy grief shall meet thee,
Do not fear an armed band,
One will fade as others greet thee,
Shadows passing through the sand.
Do not look at l1fe's long sorrow,
See how small each moment's paing
Help will come to thee tomorrow,
So each day begin again.
Every hour that fleets so slowly,
Has its task to do or bear,
Luminous the crown and holy,
When each gem is set with care.
Do not linger with regretting,
Or for passing hours despondg
Nor thy daily toil forgetting,
Look too eagerly beyond.
