Text from Pages 1 - 152 of the 1930 volume:
To An Aviator
You who have grown so intimate with stars
And known their silver dripping from your wings,
Trod with the breaking day across the sky,
Known kinship with each meteor that swings ----
You who have touched the rainbows of fragile gold,
Carved lyric ways through dawn and dusk and rain
And soared to heights our hearts have only dreamed
How can you walk earth's common ways again?

.J E, the members of the Mi Kmm staff. wish to express our sincere appreciation to
the faculty members listed below for their aid in the publication of this volume
of the Mi Kana.
To Miss Eva Knuti for her conscientious efforts, patience, and willingness as
adviser of the Mi Kaua staff. Her aid particularly in the taking of pictures and
in the planning and carrying out of the theme of this year book has been indis-
pensable. Through thick and thin in the battle of editing this year book, Miss Knuti
has stood at the helm and guided the staff.
Miss Knuti has been more than an adviser to the staff. She has been an under-
standing and sympathetic friend to whom the students could take their problems and
be assured of aid in solving them.
To Miss Eleanor Mack much credit must be extended for the art work of this
book. Under her supervision much artistical ability has been developed in students.
She is ever on the alert for talent among students and has devoted herself unspar-
ingly to them. Her sympathetic understanding and amiable disposition has won for her
our deepest respect.
To Mr. John L. Coleman, who has helped us untiringly in the publication of our
annual. We were always sure to find him at his post ever ready with wise counsel.
His sense of service and efficiency has served as an inspiring ideal.

Highlights in Aviation
"The airplane knows no bounds-its highway is the sky"-Selected.
LT is possible here to merely list a few of the highlights in the development of avia-
tion, but they suggest enormous possibilities which lie ahead. The progress of avia-
tion is bringing about changes in civilization. Every secondary school should strive
to lead the way in a changing civilization.
In 1903 the Wright brothers made the first successful aeroplane flight at Kitty
C Hawk, North Carolina. Then, in 1908, Delagrange broke the European record by fly-
ing two and one-half miles without touching the ground. Curtiss invented the hydro-
plane and flying boat in 1911. Another important step in aviation was the invention
of an airplane compass in 1917 by Mendenhall and Williamson. Air mail service, which
is now becoming commonplace, was started in 1918 when the air mail route from Wash-
ington, D. C., to New York was opened in cooperation with the war department. In 1921
a transcontinental air route was opened. Two million, two hundred and fifty-six thou-
sand miles were covered by air mail. The number increases yearly.
Then came the attempt to cross the ocean by air. Honors went Lo the "Los An-
geles," which in 1924 flew from the heart of Germany to Lakehurst, New Jersey, cover-
ing 5,000 miles in 81 hours. The Arctic regions, too, were conquered by the air birds
in 1925 when Richard Byrd and Floyd Bennett reached the North Pole.
In 1927 our own hero made history when Charles Lindbergh, on May 20, alone in a
monoplane, carrying five sandwiches and a canteen of water, made a non-stop flight to
Paris from the United States. He flew 3,610 miles in 33126 hours. The Pacific, too,
was partially conquered by airplanes in 1927 when flights were made from California
In 1929 aerial transportation was developed further when it was demonstrated that
airplanes could be refueled in air. Several pioneers gave their lives in attempting to
demonstrate that planes could be kept in the air for hours without refueling. A record
of over 400 hours of continuous flight was established.
The present year, 1929-1930, ranks highest in aviation history, for in the summer of
1929, Count Von Eckener, who commanded the Graf Zeppelin, astounded the world by
encircling the globe with an airship. To him, a brave man with a "soul to dare," much
honor and glory should be given. He is not content, but is ever striving to open new
fields for aviation to conquer. He is a world leader in aviation and is an inspiration to
the youths of our country who are willing and eager to further this new development-
"the conquest of the air."

N October 2nd of last year, the senior class of 1930 were grieved to hear of the
untimely death of one of their mates, Tony Klobuchar. He was a member of the
class all through the grades and in high school. His agreeable nature and quiet,
unassuming manner had endeared him to the hearts of his fellow students. He was
a loyal student and cooperated in all school activitiesg he was actively interested
interested in the Orange and Black and was a member of the swimming squad.

A Message From The Superintendent
ff E RESPONSIBLE." This motto, which I saw displayed over the desk of a man
who is considered a success in his chosen profession, summarizes in two words
a necessary criterion for success in any line of honest endeavor. Responsibility
is another "R" that probably should be added to the well known three "Rs," if
our educational program is to be considered complete. If this characteristic is
lacking, reading, writing, and arithmetic are of little or no value. To be truly
successful, a person must be responsible to himself and also to his associates.
Responsibility for the choice of a vocation usually rests entirely upon the indi-
vidual. He should choose wisely and carefully the vocation in which he is not only in-
terested, but for which he is best fitted and to which he is adapted. It is his duty io
find what natural ability he possesses in order that he may choose the vocation which
will enable him to contribute most to humanity and will in turn make him happiest.
To gain the goodwill and respect of his associates, a person is responsible for be-
ing courteous, honest, loyal, moderate in speech, sympathetic, and punctual. Much has
been written on each of the aforementioned characteristics, and space forbids elabora-
tion on any of them in an article of this nature. However, one is being continually
judged on these traits, and his success or failure depends upon how nearly he ap-
proaches the standards of achievements in them set up by his fellowmen.
In bidding adieu to the Seniors of the Class of 1930 my parting message, before
you join the ever-swelling ranks of Gilbert High School graduates, is: "Be Respon-

A Message From The Principal
C"HE fact of the matter is, there is no such thing as anyone teaching anyone else
anything. We teachers can guide, correct, direct awaken-that is all. There is no
real education that does not come from a desire within a student. If he is in school
simply as a matter of requirement or because it is "being done," there is little
hope of his getting anything but a diploma-which is not at all synonymous with
getting an education. In order to really know English or Chemistry or History or
Art one must first of all want to know them-intensely. Then the way is clear, the
sources are open-schools, libraries, teachers.
One cannot any more hope to genuinely know things without a desire to know
them than he can satisfy physical hunger without the desire to take food.
Principal of the Senior High School.
MR. 1. v. LAWSON
A Message From Mr. Lawson
AOCIETY is ever changing. So long as this is true, the schools must be continually
making readjustments and improvements. This must be done in order that the
preparation for life given in the schools may meet the changed social and economic
conditions of coming years. Education must be constantly aware of the future. The
boys and girls in the schools today have the problems of tomorrow to face. The
schools of yesterday prepared for the responsibilities of the present. For this rea-
son education can never become static as the civilization in which we live continues to
change. The school, in preparing for future responsibility, can never bewme perfect
because its standard is a continually changing one.
Our chief responsibility is to prepare the next generation to "carry on" in our
place. The method is not the same today as it was yesterday nor as it will be tomor-
row but the purpose, nevertheless, is the same.

Principal of Junior High School.

Changes in Faculty
'PON our return to school after the summer's vacation, we students noticed two
new names on the list of teachers for the coming school year. When we investi-
gated we found them to be two of our former teachers. Miss E. Bell, now Mrs.
J. V. Lawson, and Miss Callahan, now Mrs. L. P. King.
Among the resignations tendered during the summer were those of' Mrs. C. J.
Moe, formerly Miss Garnet Bordeaux, assistant librarian. Miss Grace Goldthorpe
was changed from the English department to become head librarian. Miss Bessie M.
Casey of St. Cloud succeeded her in the English department. Mr. Austin, gas engine
instructor, resigned to accept a position at Brandon, Canada. Mr. Sandhoff, agricultural
instructor, accepted a position at Lake Crystal, Minnesota. Mr. J. J. McCann, the new
agricultural instructor, came from Ada, Minnesota.
Further changes occurred after the opening of school. Mr. Phillips, senior high
school principal, left Gilbert to go to Milwaukee, where he accepted a position in the
vocational schol of that ciy. He was succeeded by Mr. Glenn Powers, formerly prin-
cipal of the Ely high school. Later came the resignation of Mr. Koch, instrumental
music instructor and orchestra director. This vacancy was filled by Mr. Weeks, who
came here from Akron, Ohio.
Although we disliked seeing our teachers leave, we have been very happy working
under our new principal and instructors this year.

N so lliii asia so The Routes
UR high school offers three courses: the college preparatory, the commercial, and
the agricultural course. There are 223 students enrolled in the college preparatory
course, 50 students in the commercial course, and fifteen in the agricultural course.
This year there were nine people carrying five solids and only four carrying more
than fiveg thirty carried four and one-half solids. Most of the students carried four
solids, there being 215 of those, and only thirty carrying less than four.
Science is the term applied to the generalized and systematized division of knowl-
edge. There are several reasons why science should have a place in every high school
curriculum. First, because the study of science rests on the training in observation for
which it furnishes the opportunity, second, it trains the pupil in the organization of
his observation by comparison and induction, third, it gives employment for our
imagination and at the same time provides an especially sure means of controlling
its operationsg it trains the judgment by the way in which the nature of its subject
matter favors self-elimination, and finally, the information which it yields'is of a
special and particular value. .
Probably the most important function of American history 'in the school is the
excellent training in citizenship which it provides. The student of American history
becomes familiar with the principles upon which the nation is built, and the benefits
of the government. He learns of the sacrifices men have made in order to secure for
themslves and future generations the privileges which we now take as a matter of
course. World history is of equal importance, for the United States is not an isolated
unit, but part of a world federation which is striving for peace.
Public speaking occupies an important place in our school curriculum. The power
of forceful and clear expression is essential to all. Through the work of the Dramatic
club and in the tlass play, students are given an opportunity to show their ability to
act. This year debating has been added and has won a popular place as a form of
school endeavor. Declamatory contests include oratorical, dramatic, and humorous di-
visions. Gilbert always has contestants in th extemporaneous and discussion contests.
This year Charlotte Thompson placed third in the state extemporaneous contest. Julia
Maloverh and Sadie Rubenstein placed first in the sub-district declamation contest.
ECONOMICS and SOCIOLOGY
The various contacts which one has during each day of life should make him
realize that he is but a single unit of a large organization-society. On every hand he
is influenced by various social institutions such as the church, school, and family. A
knowledge of economics and sociology is essential to every citizen if he is to be of
value to our government in promoting the solution of many problems arising today.
The teaching of physical education occupies a position of extreme importance in
the high school curriculum of today. Experts in the field of education have proven
beyond a shadow of a doubt that a strong that a strong correlation exists between a
sound body and a sound mind. The gymnasium and athletic field can boast of even
more than mere physical benefits, because the participation of boys and girls in ath-
letic contests is a test of mental alertness, of cooperation, and of sportsmanship. In
life's battle only the sound in mind and body are victorious.
3 MAMA. 30 The Routes
In high school, commercial students gain certain qualities such as mental and
physical alertness, which will help to make them better business men and women.
From their study of bookkeeping, they learn the value of money, the writing and re-
cording of negotiable papers, and many other things. The study of typing will quicken
their power of mental perception and concentration. K
LATIN and FRENCH
Language is the tool of understanding. Any study that gives a greater command
of the English language should have an important place in high school. The cultural
and historical' element in the study of Latin cannot be overestimated. The Graeco-
Roman myths have been the background for many of our literary masterpieces, and
today reference is made to them in much of our modern literature.
The English course in high school aims to give thte student a practical knowledge
of grammar, composition, and literature. Much of the time is spent in both oral and
written composition. The student learns how to collect, organize, and present material.
Three things achieved in the study of literature are how to select good books, how to
read them appreciatively, and the stimulation of a taste for good literature.
The purpose of geometry is to call our attention to geometric facts, to lead us to
observe similar facts, and to relate and systematize them for use in solving various
Geometry increases our capacity for enjoyment by developing an appreciation of ar-
chitectural and engineering construction. Above all geometry develops in us self-re-
liance and initiative, being the only formal logic obtained in secondary schools.
The agricultural course in high school is divided into three classes-I, II, and a
part-time class. In Agriculture I, emphasis is placed on marketing. Agriculture II takes
up grains and livestock. The part-time work deals with any problems the boys may
have at home. From all of these classes, there has been organized a Future Farmers
of America chapter, which is an organization for the development of an agricultural-
vocational program, as Well as social and civic activities. Night school is held in some
of the outlying districts during the spring and summer months in which local prob-
lems are discussed.
HOME ECONOMICS '
Home economics was introduced into our high school for the purpose of training
the home makers of the future. In this course higher standards of food and clothing
are established. Girls must find their place in society as homemakers and in order to
do this they need to develop skills and judgments essential to the performance of
Under the term, Industrial Arts, we include all those subjects which teach .manual
skill and offer trade information. The subjects offered are: Woodworking, Printing,
and Mechanical Drawing. All of these subjects are taught as exploratory work, the
purpose being to offer boys an opportunity to gain information regarding skill and
mental equipment required in the various trades.

N a certain September morn in the year 1926 a large classe of little green passen-
gers started their struggle. The pilot of the class was Leo Bright, who was aided
by the mechanics in charge of the air-ports, who helped them through their first
y In October of the same year, the little green passengers were initiated by an
older group known as sophomores. This group was the last one to go through the
torments of initiationg initiation having been abolished by authorities.
Several parties and hikes were held by the different organizations and a great
deal of work was accomplished. Many talented people were found among them. A
group of five girls won the championship for the Junior High School in volley ball
and the following spring a few more of these athletes won the championship for both
the Junior and Senior High in baseball. They have held that championship ever since.
The boys of this talented group also made a fine showing both in athletics and in
At the end of the year all the green had worn off these passengers and they had
become an important group in the Gilbert High School. Thus ended their first suc-
cessful year of progress toward their goal.
In the year of 1927 when school again began its inevitable annual session, these
ex-green passengers began their work as proud and important sophomores. Toine Pel-
linen, Beatrice Bordeaux, and Carlo Paciotti were elected as the new pilots. Mr. Barnes
and Miss Woods were the mechanics.
In October, in place of the customary initiation, the sophomores gave a party for
the other High School passengers. During the year many of the passengers of this
famous sophomore group made athletic teams and took part in other activities. Many
of them took part in the "Belle of Barcelona." By the end of the year it surely looked
as though the world was going to have to sit up and take notice.
'In 1928 the group of '29 Junior passengers took up theirwork with a new gusto.
It would take them only two more years to make them full fledged pilots, ready to sail
anywhere in their own plane.
In January that year the successful opcretta, "Pickles," was given. Many of the
Junior passengers had leads in this operetta and a great many others were in the
chorus. The pilot for the year was Beatrice Bordeaux. The mechanics were Mr. Deal
and Miss Woods.
The high spot of the year was the Junior Prom, which was given in April. The
passengers proved that not only could they excel in sports and other extra curricular
activities, but they could be delightful hosts and hostesses.
The orchestra, which boasted of quite a few of our Junior passengers, gave a series
of successful concerts in Gilbert and the outlying districts.
In 1929, the group gathered for their last lap of the journey. They elected Peter
Maclnnis, Beatrice Bordeaux, and Elizabeth Hogan for the last pilots, and Miss
Feyereisen and Mr. Brookens as the last mechanics.
Most of the leads in the operetta, "The Gypsy Rover," were taken by Seniors, and
the chorus boasted of many of them also.
As they neared their goal, the Seniors seemed to take on new personalitiesg a
change which was very noticeable in the senior class play.
With the Senior farewell party came the close of their careers as passengers of
the G. H. S. plane-Graduation. The group of eighty-seven passengers was the larg-
est ever graduated from the G. H. S. plane. They left behind them high standards of
scholarship and ideals which other passengers in the future may strive to attain.

A Graduates Thoughts
A senior stepped from his high school days
And into the sea of life:
He knew not what was in slore for him
Of joy, sorrow and strife-
He remembered the pleasures of boyhood,
Yes, even kindergarten daysg
The teachers who had steered his bark
In all life's devious ways.
As he sat there sorrowfully musing,
He wondered why it must be
That one is always blind to the virtues,
And only the faults can see.
If he could but live life o'er again
What a differen. chap he'd be
His life would be one preparation
For the journey out on life's sca-
He would build life's bark far stronger,
Equip it with knowledge, and character, too,
Then no matter how stormy life's ocean
He would make his way through.
He thought, "What's the use of bemoaningg
Perhaps it was meant to be.
I'll start right now io build my bark
Ere 1 put out to sea."

We're leaving you, Dear High School,
Impatiently awaiting the day
Vlfhen our last "Farewe11s" are said.
And we shall go away.
But, when the time for parting
Is drawing quickly nigh,
We would linger still--. We ponder
On the years that have passed by:--
Incidents long forgotten
Come back to us-vivid and realy
Dear friends--old ties- loved places-
Beckon to us and make us feel
That something beautiful is passing,
Something we shall not find againg
And so we would linger still-and wait-and sigh
Our last, "Farewell, dear Gilbert High."

EMINISCENCES of our departev' friend and schoolmate, Joseph Lopp, will always
linger in our minds. The bright smile which always illuminated his face has faded
away fore: er, but his accomplishments and wonderful personality will always abide
with us. He took part in almost every campaign in school, and had twice won the
trip to Minneapolis for selling the largest number of Orange and Black subscrip-
C tions. He made a fine showing in Junior High football and had been a promising
player. He also acted as mascot for the basketball and football teams. Joseph was
popular and well liked by all his fellow-students. During his illness there was an
empty place which had previously been occupied by him in our class-rooms and then
came the unfortunate day when fate took him to a better world.

J HAT a blow it was to the freshmen when it was announced that they were to be
included with the junior high rather than senior high during their freshman year
in 1927. However, this did not hinder them from taking an active part in their
school work. Nothing could discourage this peppy and industrious group of stu-
We had started our high school course from a strong and sturdy beginning. We
had freshmen represented in swimming, basketball, football, and track. We also
boasted a 100 per cent membership to the Safety Council. Teachers found us to be a
willing and happy group. At the close of our freshmen year we had attained a high
place in the estimation of our teachers and principal and were a worthy class to be
taken into the ranks of the senior high for which we had yearned.
Our sophomore year was started with all the enthusiasm a class could put forth.
We could justly be compared to a pilot making his first flight in unknown territory,
but it didn't take us long to make ourselves known in the senior high school. Of course
some of our playful pranks had to be receded, and more time had to be devoted to
school work. Perhaps you have seen studious sophomores buried in geometry books,
trying to figure out some theorem which seemed to have no answer, or studying for
a Cesar or French test.
At the first class meeting officers for the year were elected. They were Theodore
Olson, presidentg Mary Ann Strathern, vice presidentg and Willard Borden, secretary
and treasurer. Carroll Clifford and Anita Saxine were elected Student Council mem-
bers, and Miss Knuti and Mr. Johnson were our class sponsors.
Before our sophomore days were over we had attained some places on the honor
roll as a result of strenuous and earnest labor, and sophomore names shone on lists of
all extra curricular activities. They were well represented in Pipers of Pan, Boys'
Glee Club, basketball, boys' and girls' swimming team, and many social clubs. Further-
more, sophomore talents were needed in the operetta, "Pickles" Several of the leads
were sophomores and also a large part of the chorus.
In June our 1928 plane had safely struggled through its six semesters and was
piloted safely to earth where it was placed in the museum of "Memories" with our
Now we are juniors! We can easily be distinguished from the sophomores by our
added amount of dignity. This year we mean business. Anyone should know this by
our serious faces. A business meeting was held at the beginning of the year in which
officers were elected, and various points of interest were discussed. The juniors are
noted for their ability to entrtain others, and therefore the students were all anxious
for us to give the junior prom. After meetings they would crowd about us and ask
how things were coming along, but the juniors loved to mystify the other students and
would not divulge their secret. At last it came! The junior prom was .announced and
girls began to worry about what they would wear. It certainly was a grand party for
everyone and lingered long in the memories of students.
Although we can never live over our school days we shall never forget how much
we had accomplished in our junior year of high school, for we really had climbed a
great part of the ladder of success.

ANY of the active seniors began to be leaders in their sophomore year, so, too,
many of the members of the Class of 1932 are beginning to stand out as leaders
in the high school. Among the sophomores are many whose names appear regu-
larly on the Honor Roll. They are Lawrence David, Edward Francel, Rudolph
Koroshec, John Laakso, Josephine Lestic, Edna Oja, George Pollock, Sophie Pros-
f nick, Alice Vaillant, Mary Vertachnick, Sulo Ojakangas, and Jane Radermacher.
In athletics, too, we find many sophomores. In football Angelo G. Gentile, Angelo J.
Gentile, and Joe Bombich proved to be strong men. In basketball, Joe Bombich became
one of the stars as did Angelo J. Gentile, Leo Sundgren, Angelo G. Gentile and Joe
Velacich. Raymond Laine, Arthur Poola, George Pollock, Uno Reinikainen, Stanley
Moren, and Matt Rauh were among the spohomores on the swimming squad. In girls'
athletics, the sophomores had as their representatives, Mary Lopp, Priscilla Lopp,
Mary Pintar, Mary Nekich, and others. Bernice Komatar, another sophomore, gained
the honor of being elected head cheerleader of the high school. Other school organiza-
tions such as the Dramatic Club, the Orange and Black, the band, and orchestra have
many sophomores on their lists.

N a momentous day in September, being advised by our mineralogist that weather
conditions favored our taking off, although squalls and storms were ahead which
he was sure we could overcome, we set out at the Ninth Grade Air Port and
planned to continue to the city of Graduation, being piloted by the capable and
sincere aviatrixes and aviators, Miss McKenzie, Mrs. Nolan, Miss Prouty, Miss
Dean, and Mr. Iverslie. There was much excitement aboard the gigantic plane as
each passenger was more eager to gain the "Roll of HOH01", than his fellow colleagues.
There wer many stops to be made at places of interest. We went hither, skither,
through History, rushing in and out of modern and ancient civilizations. When trying
to catch the spirit of History we were suddenly plunged into the city of Latin. After
arriving in Latin one was simply staggered by the thought of attempting to compre-
hend that ancient city. Then followed a swift but difficult flight through Algebra.
After that came English. We took a side trip to Civics and Social Science, Expression,
Music, Sewing, Cooking, Spelling, General Science, Wood Work, and other interesting
places. The Safety Council proved a point of attraction to some and we often found
members searching for ways and means by which to reduce the number of accidents on
the journey. A quota of the passengers petitioned a landing that they might investigate
a study in the land of Reading Club. These members put on a number of interesting
programs for the passengers who were weary of studying Algebra, Latin, English and
other subjects. For a short time every week the passengers stopped in the country of
Music where they held respective places in the orchestra. Most everyone of the boys
went down in a parachute to gain what they were able from Basket Ball, Football,
Track, and Swimming. Those who proved themselves prominent were Joe Bombich,
Angelo Gentile, Uno Reinikainen, George Rusestine. These were inspired by the cheer-
leaders-Bernice Komatar and Lawrence David. The Orange and Black proved a mar-
velous aid io all on board as well as a means of communication with those left behind.
Speaking is always a necessity. In this day and age of radio telephone service between
plane and ground it has accomplished much. Rudolph Faith, Bernice Komatar, and Jane
Radermacher were the chief spokesmen. Those who proved themselves the most heroic,
however, on the journey were Sophie Prosnick and George Pollock, as they obtained
the honor of "Best Citizens."
We went through a fog of extminations and after passing it We were informed
that we were on our way to the Tenth Grade Air Port. Our piloting cares changed
hands, as we were now under the guidance of our class sponsors, Mr. Johnson and Miss
Woods, and aided by Bernice Komatar, Uno Reinikainen, and Anna Zallar, our assist-
ant navigators. This lap of the journey found many new interesting things. They dis-
covered a Student Council which was a great aid to the navigation. Safety work did
not slack, neither did that of Music, for the Glee Club was added to the Orchestra. It
was necessary to practice economy or they would be short of preparations for future
flights. The strngest promoter of thrift was Gertrude Saline. In athletics, Angelo Gen-
tile, Joe Bombich, Uno Reinikainen, Leo Sundgren, and others were renowned. Many
again landed in that covet port, The Honor Roll. Social events on board the ship
changed in that the spohomores abandoned the annual Hallowe'en masquerade for a
party later in the year which took place in the month of January. '
Thus our plane journeyed through the route to Sophomo1'eland. Many records were
broken by our plane. Junior Year is our next goal and then will come our final achieve-

The Student Council has sponsored several of these. This body has played an active
part in developing good sportsmanship. It arranged with Mr. Johnson to have some
gymnastic programs between halves at each basketball game. Perhaps the most im-

"I am glad to testify to the accomplishments
of the Safety Movement."-President Hoover.
NE of the most recent steps in education advancement was the addition of a Safety
Council to our high school curriculum. It is composed of eight active members, one
elected from each home room. Any student of the Gilbert High School can become
an associate member if he meets the requirements for membership according to the
by-laws of the organization and keeps the following pledge:
"I will work for the safety of others as I would want them to work for my safety.
"I will try to be careful all the time, everywhere.
"I will not take unnecessary chances of getting hurt, and will warn others against
'JI will do my part to help reduce the numb?r of accidents this year.
"All this I will do for the sake of humanity and the honor of my school."
The aim of this organization is to reduce the number of accidents and to remedy
unsafe conditions. Some melhods by which the council accomplishes its aims are: Plac-
ing educational posters in each room, bi-monthlyg awarding banners for certain records
in mcmbrrship and no accirlentsg lectures and safe.y filmsg and checking up on unsafe
conditions at school and at home. The results are a decrease in the number of acci-
dents, better attendance in the schools, and greater efficiency generally.

Ever since 1923 the schools have taken great interest in teaching and practicing
saving. Mr. Deal is the head of the banking department. A Thrift Council, which
has two members from each home room, cooperates with Mr. Deal in encouraging
banking. In the percentage of pupils having banking accounts, Gilbert High School
leads all of the Range schools with the exception of Hibbing. The annual report
on school savings by the American Bankers' association, for all schools in the country,
gives Gilbert High School ninth place on the Honor Roll for Class D schools. Over
ninety per cent of the students of Gilbert High School have savings accounts in the
First National Bank of Gilbert. Each week a banner is given to the home room which
obtains the highest record in the number banking. Miss Feyereisen's senior home room
usually wins thrift honors in the Senior High School. The St. Louis River school has
the best thrift record of all the schools in the district.

AROM the time that the Athletic Association was organized in 1924, it, as a student
I organization, has contributed much to help the school. Membership in this asso-
-' ciation enables the students to see the games at reduced prices and provides trans-
portation to outside games. This body explains the financial condition of the Ath-
letic Association by issuing a monthly bulletin. It is up to the council to take care
f of all athletic funds and to choose sweaters and awards for the athletes. Each year
the student body elects a president and vice president for the association. Two faculty
advisers, three students, and the athletic director form the council. The membership
is divided into two classes-active and associate. The former is open to all senior high
students for the fee of twenty-five cents 3 the latter to all junior high students who pay
a similar fee.
In the five years of its existence the Athletic Association has been a financial
success, and has taken a responsible charge of all athletic finances. The athletic coun-
cil also took a leading part in furthering good sportsmanship.

National Honor Society
ACHOOLS of today realize that scholarship and character training are equally im-
portant in the making of good citizens, which is the primary aim of all education.
The National Honor Society has made it possible for different schools to promote
real work and honesty among the pupils wlio will some day be active citizens of
our country. In 1927, Gilbert High School organized a branch of this society and
received their charter. This year the following thirteen new members were voted
b-y the faculty into this society: Margaret Hoffner, Anita Saxine, Claire Saxine, Bert
Hanninen. Charlotte Thompson, Mary Ann Strathern, Vienna Isomaki, Meryl Culbart,
Mary Pacifico, Laila Alfton, Anna Tanko, Anna Mahovlich, Edith Peterson.
These students have all proved themselves to be very deserving of this honor.
Pupils eligible to be elected must be in the upper quarter of their class. Not more
than fifteen per cent of the twelfth grade or five per cent of the eleventh grade may
be chosen. Scholarship is not the only factor taken into consideration. Leadership, char-
acter, and service are also necessary to attain membership. Any member who falls be-
low the standards that were the basis of his election to membership may be dropped
from the society by a majority vote of the faculty.
Through this society it is hoped that studenf s will be encouraged to attain high
standards in scholarship, character, leadership, and service.

National Athletic Scholarship Society
NE of the most coveted honors open to the boys of our high school is membership
in the National Athletic Scholarship Society. A chapter of this society was organ-
ized in our high school in 1924 to promote high scholarship, better ideals of sports-
manship, and more outslanding loaders among boy athletes.
The rules which govern the selection of these athletes to membership are
stated thus in the National Athletic Scholarship constitution:
"Eligibility to membership in this society shall be limited to those boys earning
an athletic letter in one of the four major sports or letters in two minor sports, whose
average in their school work for three consecutive semesters is equal to or higher than
the general average of the school, and who have exemplified the highest type of citi-
zenship and sportsmanship."
In 1927 the School Board voted to award each member with the official emblem
of the society, a gold key, as proper recognition of membership to this honorary so-
ciety. This year ithe school board awarded twelve new emblems. The boys who received
gold keys this year were: Joe Bombich, Charles Nagolski, Frank Yambrik, Urho Korpi,
Edwin Koski, Arne Laakso, Uno Lindholm, George Pollock, Rudolph Maurine, Rudolph
Kukar, and Peter Zanna. Two seniors who attained this honor in previous years were:
,Ifno Maki, '29, and Jack Starich, '28,

C"HE "G" Club was organized three years ago by the athletes of Gilbert High school,
l under the supervision of Coach Barnes. The purpose of this club is to promote
better standards of athletics, to elevate the ideals of true sportsmanship, to create
better fellowship among the athletes, to prevent any misunderstanding between
visiting teams and the local high school, and also to prevent any student from
wearing a high school sweater unless he has rightfully earned it. A
Gilbert has always ranked high in sportsmanship, but this year the student body
displayed even better standards of sportsmanship. We hope it will be the aim of the
students. in vears to come. to maintain these high sportsmanship records, A
To be eligible to membership in the "G" Club, the student must earn a letter in
some sport which is being carried on in high school. The membership is open to both
boy and girl athletes.

Boys' Glee Club
"Music is the poetry of the air"
C"HE Boys' Glee Club has done some very fine work this year. This Glee club is un-
der the direction of Mrs. J. V. Lawson, music supervisor. It held its meetings dur-
ing the extra-curricular period on Frirdays. The greater part of the Glee club was
composed of new material. The Boys' Glee Club played a large part in the produc-
ing of the "Gypsy Rover," a colorful operetta which was given on December 6 by
the combined Boys' and Girls' Glee clubs. Most of the leading male parts were
carried by members of the group. Peter Maclnnis took the leading role of Rob. Ernest
Curnow played Captain Jerome. The part of an English fop was humorously portrayed
by Ernest Aijala. Chester Ahlin was the father. Anthony Indihar and Paul Cosgrove
carried humorous gypsy roles. Uno Maki, Willard Borden and Joe Glatch also played
important roles. The Glee club will lose several of its members through graduation.
They are Herbert Johnson, Uno Maki, Peter Maclnnis, Ernest Curnow, Peter Zanna,
and Willard Borden.

its practices every Friday. This year many new members from the Junior High
School joined the band. This organization has aided much in adding pep to the
rallies and the football and the basketball games. The band made its firsig public
e appearance at the pep assembly for the Virginia football game. Since then it has
been ready to perform whenever called upon. The band will lose some of its outstand-
ing members by graduation. Those who will receive their diplomas in June are: Ernest

"Sweet are the pleasures that to verse belong
And doubly sweet a brotherhood in song."
J HAT the high school girls took an active interest in the Glee Club this year, is
shown by the fact that we had the largasg cnrollrnent in the history of the school
The officers for the year were: President, Beatrice Bord:-aux, vice president,
Elizabeth Hogang secretary and treasurer, Jennie Prosen. Two of the most looked
for events during the year were the operetta and the May Festival. Because of
the efficiency of Mrs. Lawson, the director, and the cooperation and enthusiasm
or the girls, both of these activities were successful.
Our High School Glee clubs are to a good number of s':uden's the only means for
the cultivation of the most wonderful musical instrument of all-the human voice, and
to some the only musical training they receive. The young singers become acquainted
with the value of group singing, and the need of sacrificing the individual voice for
the welfare of the organization. During the year many songs of true musical merit are
studied. Through the Glee club, love for the true value of vocal music is cultivated.

l Dramatic Club
"Full of pep from top to toes
With a 'rep' to make things go."
C"'HIS group of laughing high school girls not only make up the Dramatic Club in
body, but also in spirit. 'Ihe club consists of seniors, juniors, and sophomores. All
members are voted into the club under very strict principles. Seventeen new mem-
bers were initiaced into it this year. The club started the usual round of high
school parties. Talents in this club vary from a "Hysterical Witch" to "Laughing
Judees" and "Gigglying Gertiesf' All members are willing to expose their talents
for the benefit of entertainments. It is no wonder that they are so immensely proud
of this organization. They have boosted and aided in the sale of the Mi Kana, several
members being as ambitious as to make up songs about the Mi Karla for various pro-
grams. The school relies on the Dramatic Club for much of its pep in the assemblies,
and it finds that the girls are always willing to participate in these programs.

The Orange and Black
"Great is journalism. Is not every able editor a ruler of the world,
being the persuader of it?"-Carlyle.
-'NDER the able editorship of Charlotee Thompson, the Orange and Black has
completed a very successful year. At the beginning of the school year, the
sales campaign was opened by a program in the assembly. The staff had its
weekly meetings, and the paper was published every week. Special issues
were prepared for Good Book Week, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. A spe-
cial Literary Issue was published in the spring which gave the talented stu-
dents an opportunity to publish their Writings. The staff also aimed for variety in
the make-up of the paper and in the news. A two-column editorial column was intro-
duced. In the Gilbert High Mirror the feature editor wrote a brief story about two
teachers each week, thus giving the students an opportunity to learn more about the
faculty. A column of personal news also proved of interest to the readers. Ernest
Aijala, the business manager, assisted by Peter Zanna in the advertising, made the
paper a financial success. Claire Saxine conducted an extensive exchange with other
school papers. The Orange and Black receives papers from pracibcally every state in
the Union and one from England. The paper is also a charter member of the National
Scholastic Press Association and of the Minnesota High School Press Association. The
Orange and Black, through stories, editorials, and features, tried to further the prac-
tice of good sportsmanship in the school. All extra-curricular activities, as well as
scholarship, were promoted and advanced by the Orange and Black. Miss Hughes di-
rected the junior high staff 5 Mr. Coleman was the adviser of the mechanical staff, and
Miss Knuti acted as adviser to the business and editorial staffs.

The Gypsy Rover
C"'HE "GYPSY ROVER" is an operetta which is built around the character of Rob,
later known as Sir Gilbert Howe, of the English Nobility. Rob is stolen when an
infant by his nurse, Meg, who laler becomes the wife of Marto, a gypsy. Rob
grows to manhood among the gypsies, believing Meg and Marto to be his parents.
One day, while riding with Lord Craven, her fiance, Lady Constance Martendale
. becomes lost in the woods. They wander to the gypsy camp where Constance and
Rob fall in love at first sight. Craven objects to Rob's altitude, but in a comedy scene
with Marto and Sinfo, he is made to tell Sir George, Constance's father, that Rob is
a charming fellow. In act two, Rob goes to the home of Constance where they plan to
elope, but are overheard by Craven who informs Sir George, and plans are made to cap-
Lure Rob. Rob is thrown into prison, but later escapes. Two years elapse and Rob has
come into his estates, his identity having been proven by Meg. He becomes a success-
ful composer. Constance has remained true to her love for Rob and on his return to
England, he woos and wins her for his wife. As Rob says, "The good fairies have led
me to the beautiful country after all, and our story, Constance, can end in the proper
way, 'They lived happily ever after'." There are also pretty love affairs between Nina
and Captain Jerome, and Zara and Sinfo, and many comedy scenes by Sinfo and Marto.
All of the parts were well portrayed, making it one of the best operettas produced in
the Gilbert high school.

"Speech is the golden harvest that
followeth the flowering of thought."
C"HE Gilbert speakers have again upheld the reputation of G. H. S. In the extem-
poraneous contest we had a speaker of whom we were indeed proud. After carry-
ing off the honors in the regionals, Charlotte Thompson entered the state contest
at Macalester College where she was awarded third place. Peter MacTnnis was our
representative in the discussion contest, taking fourth place. He displayed his tal-
ent as a discussion speaker in a wonderfully constructed speech. In the declamatory
contest, we were fortunate in having three experienced speakers, Sadie Rubenstein,
Julia Maloverh, and Donald Kraker to represent the high school in the dramatic, hu-
morous, and oratorical divisions, respectively. 'Ihe winning of first place in the sub-
district entitled Julia and Sadie to enter the district contest a Virginia.
This is the first year that Gilbert has entered the field of debate and the debaters
did very excellent work. They placed second in the district, Eveleth triumphing- over
them hy only two points. The affirmative team consisting of Meryl Culbert, Claire
Saxine, and Mary Pacifico won both their debates. The negative team composed of
Mary Ann Strathern, Vienna Isomaki, and Anita Saxine, won their debate with Ely,
but lost to the strong Eveleth team which went to the state. The question for debate
this year was: "Resolved, that the present petit and trial jury system should be abol-
ished in the United States." An interesting question to sudy, good material to work
with, an efficient coach, and backing from the student body have all contributed to the
success of this activity. Much credit goes to Miss Feyereisen for her efficient coaching.

Future Farmers of America
MOVEMENT worthy of support and attention in our school is the organization
called the Future Farmers of America. It is an organization of our agricultural
students, maintained and operated by the students with the cooperation of the
adviser, Mr. McCann.
Similarly, there is a national organization perfected to coordinate with the
various states and schools. The movement is well on its way in our state and
on its way in our school.
Each chapter in the state is under national charter and state constitution. This
gives it the stability and scope which it needs to assure its success.
The tentative objects in the constitution include the following functions: CU To
assist in the development of an effective program for vocational education in agricul-
ture. C2l To develop rural leadership and provide experience in its techniques. Q33 To
promote scholarship and all-around achievement on the part of the students. 141 To
promote wholesome school and community spirit. 151 To foster and develop a scien-
tific attitude toward the problems of farming. 163 To develop a good judging team
which will represent our school in the state contest.
Any organization which is to become great and powerful must do so by its own
merit. Thus each of our individuals accepts a personal responsibility for accomplish-
ing the work and unfolding the principles upon which this organization is built.

LF "variety is the spice of life," then Gilbert has surely had some spicy assemblies.
Gilbert stands out as an athletic town, and we like to think we get our pep from the
assemblies put on before each game. Our cheerleaders are "top-notchers" and are
backed by the student body to its utmost. The cheerleaders were ably assisted by
our talented Dramatic club and other high school students. Much credit is due to
C Miss Feyereisen, who directly supervises the stunts put on during pep meetings.
Interesting talks are given at each pep meting by enthusiastic professors and student
thletes. Several assemblies have been devoted to programs put on by contestant
speakers and students excelling in musical talent.
Special assemblies were presented before the Christmas and Thanksgiving holi-
days. The Christmas program was given by the Junior High Reading club, under the
supervision of Miss Hughes. The Thanksgiving program was an inspiring one. It por-
trayed the lives of the Pilgrims in three scenes. The first scene, a Pilgrim homey
the second, the courtship of Miles Standish, and the third, a scene of Salem witchcraft.
Another outstanding assembly was the Armistice day program. At this assembly
the students were honored by having as their guest and speaker Major De Cercy of
France. He gave us a very excellent talk on peace and good will. Another interesting
number on the program was a talk by Mr. Nate Keller, district commander of the
American Legion. Musical numbers were contributed' by high school students. A tab-
leau, "The High School Service Flag," was another feature of the program. In this
peace pageant, the characters of different nations were represented by members of
the Dramatic club. The nations represented were Japan, China, Greece, Italy, Norway,
Sweden, England, Scotland, Spain, Holland, Hawaii, Germany, Ireland, France, Rus-
sia, Mexico, Poland, Jugo-Slavia, Finland, Uncle Sam, and Peace. The concluding num-
ber was "Taps."
American Education Week was observed in the Gilbert high school with the follow-
ing programs for each day: Tuesday, November 12, was "Home and School Day." Mu-
sic by the High School band was the first number directed by Mr. Weeks. The second
was a talk by Rev. T. S. Thompson on "Home" Mrs. Glenn Powers gave a piano solo.
A vocal solo, followed by music by the High School band, concluded the program.
Wednesday, November 13, was "Know Your School Day." I naddition to the entertain-
ment furnished by the high school students, Miss Anna Palki contributed several piano
solos and Mr. J. V. Lawson spoke on "Know Your School." Thursday, November 14,
"School Opportunity Day." An interesting program was put on by the high school with
Mr. Powers as speaker of the day. Friday, November 15, "Health Day." There were the
usual musical number and Mr. Barnes addressed the high school on the value of health.
The last number was "Dr, Milk Bottle" by the junior high school hygiene department
under the direction of Miss Fulton.
Miss Feyereisen is in charge of all assemblies and to her much credit is due for
their. excellence, The students are trained in her expression classes, and she allows
nothing to be put on that is not perfected.
Junior High Achievements
C"'HE Junior High School includes the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades organized on
the departmental plan. Mr. Lawson is the principal of the Junior High.
Mr. Lawson has been with us for two years. He is well-liked by the students
and teachers. Mr. Lawson starts all the organizations at the beginning of the year
and appoints the faculty advisers. He has promoted organizations along many lines
Under the direction of Miss Dean the Junior High orchestra has been organized.
It has been named "The Jolly Harpers." It has appeared at the assemblies. Miss Dean
has put in all her available time to help make the orchestra a success. This orchestra
is not only an enjoyment to the members, but also a help to them in further orchestra
work. "The Jolly Harpers" hold practices every Wednesday at the extra-curricular
perod in the music room. The orchestra has been successful through the cooperation
and hard work of both the members and the director.
Under the direction of Miss Pagnucco, a newly organized Girls' Glee club was
started for the girls of the junior high. The members held their meetings every Tues-
day and Thursday in the music room. The group boasts of thirty members. For their
officers they elected Margaret Radermacher, president, Marjory Fulton and Phyllis
Ann Saxine. vice presidents, and Flora Vaillant, secretary. The girls have entertained
on the assembly programs.
For the second consecutive year, Miss Hughes has taken the advisership of the
Reading club. This club has produced considerable results and shown a great deal of
talent. The purpose of the organization this year was the study of modern American
writers and their books. It has entertained at various assemblies with appropriate num-
be1's. Hilda Niska acted as president, and Annie Malkovich as secretary.
The Junior High School Safety Council is an organization in which the whole stu-
dent body, through the active members, conducts meetings and does active, construct-
ive safety work in the community. Active members are elected to the council by their
class mates, each of the thirteen home rooms being represented by one member. Meet-
ings are held every Friday at the extra-curricular period. Safety membership in the
Junior High has reached a very high percentage. One of the most important events
of the year was the awarding of medals to Kenneth Culbert and Anthony Mesojedec.
They were awarded these medals as a result of placing in the National Highway Essay
contest, Anthony receiving second and Kenneth third place in the state. Safety scrap
books have become a yearly project for each room. The purpose of the scrap book is
to promote better safety. The books are judged and the three best are sent to the state,
the remaining books being sent to hospitals for the entertainment of invalid children.
Mr. Gardner has acted as faculty adviser. The heads of the Safety Council are: Cyril
Lopp, presidentg Louise Buncich, vice presidentg Agnes Semeja, secretary.

Junior High Achievements
The Junior High School has its own Orange and Black staff which takes care of
the Junior High and Intermediate sections of the school paper. In the special Christ-
mas edition they put out a page of their own. They have tried to give the latest news
of their school. Miss Hughes chose Sylvia Baye, Priscilla Lopp, Elizabeth Jegloski,
Cyril Lopp, and Edward Prosen from the list of candidates for the first semester. For
the second semester Marjory Fulton and Walter Frajola were chosen to hold positions
on the staff.
The Junior High School has shown its pep and enthusiasm by having active cheer-
leaders who have done their part at assemblies and games. They are Angela Maloverh
and Cyril Lopp. At the beginning of the year, Mr. Lawson put out a call for volunteers
who wished to try out for cheerleaders. Many people turned out, and Angela and Cyril
were elected by the school. They have had charge of the Junior High pep meetings.
The Thrift Department of the Junior High has been under the direction of Mr.
Deal. Miss Greeley and Miss Detert have been rivals for the banner, giving the other
rooms little chance to gain it. The statistics show that, the banking percentage has
increased twenty per cent this year over last year's percentage.

BUILDING A TEMPLE
A builder builded a temple,
He wrought it with grace and skill,
Pillars and grains and arches
All fashioned to work his will.
Men said as they saw its beauty,
"It shall never know decay,
Great is thy skill, 0 builder,
Thy fame shall endure for aye."
A teacher builded a temple
With loving and infinite care,
Planning each arch with patience,
Laying each stone with prayer.
None praised her unceasing efforts,
None knew of her wondrous plan,
For the temple the teacher builded
Was unseen by the eyes of man.
Gone is the builder's temple,
Crumbled into the dust,
Low lies each stately pillar,
Food for consuming rust.
But the temple the teacher builded
Will last while the ages roll,
For that beautiful, unseen temple
Is a child's immortal soul.

C"0 the boys' basketball team, the girls' swimming squad, and the speaker, we are
indebted for the trophies which have been presented to our school this year.
One of the highly prized trophies which our boys' basketball team has won
is the conference cup, given by the Moe-Indihar Post of the American Legion.
This is the second year of its existence and Gilbert has won it both years. The
standings of the teams are rated by the number of games played, the number lost
and the number won throughout the whole season, the team having the highest per-
centage winning the conference title.
For two years the Barnesmen have worked hard in the district tournaments, fight-
ing as runners-up in the finals to gain the championship of the seventh district, but
without success until this year they attained their goal. Their first opponents were
Eveleth and after eliminating them by a score of 23 to 17 they met the strong Bi-
wabik team. As a result of a hard-fought contest, Gilbert triumphed by a score of 25
to 22. Our last foe was the Tower quint, but they, too, were downed by a score of 36-
10, making our team possessors of the Seventh District championship trophy. The
players of Gilbert and Tower, as runners-up, were presented with individual medals.
This victory gave Gilbert the right to represent this district at the regionals, which
were held at Chisholm.
This season Gilbert was very fortunate in securing the much coveted "Gold Brick."
This is the first year of its existence. It originated at Virginia, some individual do-
nating it in hopes of its getting the reputation of the "brown jug." The brick is beau-
tifully decorated in the colors of each school which has at some time had possession
of it. Surmounting all of these is an orange basketball on a black background which
represents Gilbert. This has been the idol of all the teams and all struggled to attain
it for their school.
Miss Woods' mermaids brought additional athletic honors to Gilbert High School
in the state swimming meet held at Virginia in which ten towns participated. Gilbert
won second place and broke two records. Gilbert made a fine showing against tnese
aggressive individuals. Our relay team composed of Jennie Prosen, Teenie Mahala,
Gertrude Hogan, and Beatrice Bordeapx maintained a splendid record of no defeats
throughtout the whole season. In the state meet they proved their superiority to the
other teams by setting a new state record of 55.5 seconds by which the merited a
trophy. Gilbert High School is indeed proud of this trophy at it shows the hard work
and excellence of these four niermaids.
Jennie Prosen, a free-style swimmer, further honored our school by carrying off
the individual cup which is awarded to the swimmer with the highest number of points.
Jennie entered the 100-yard and 50-yard free style events, taking first honors in both
and also breaking the state record by two seconds, making it 30.8. The former record
was held by Mae Matt, a graduate of the Gilbert High School. The extreme speed
of her strokes was highly lauded.
Our team displayed many medals after the meet. Each member of the relay was
awarded a medal and Jennie Prosen carried off two medals in both free style events.
Our divers, Mary Lopp and Beatrice Bordeaux, achieved medals by placing third and
Besides all these athletic achievements our extemporaneous speaker, Charlotte
Thompson, Won a medal for taking third place at the state contest held at Macalester
College at St. Paul.

The coach is a vital unit in school activities. A
coach can do much for a school by virtue of his con-
tact with athletic activities. By this we do not mean
not only the actual participation in athletic contests,
but also in the building up of a school devoted to
clean athletics in a sportsmanlike manner, and se-
curing the support of the community. Gilbert High
School is fortunate in having in our coach, Mr.
Barnes, an able athletic director, a builder of great
teams, and a builder of good sportsmanship by be-
ing a builder of the right attitude of the participants
in the game and of the student body toward ath-
letics. Mr. Barnes is a builder of ideals and of the
appreciation of the student body and townspeople
We are fortunate in having a coach like Mr.
Johnson as a trainer of our swimming and track
teams, for these two divisions of athletics call for a
leader specialized in the various events in which the
teams must excel. Mr. Johnson has the foresight to
pick out good material and the ability to cooperate
with each individual to develop his skill to the ut-
most. Furthermore by building his teams up on a
basis of good sportsmanship, Coach Johnson has
been no small factor in increasing the fine sports-
manship of our school. X
Miss Vloods, the girls' physical 'training teacher
and swimming coach, deserves much credit for all
that she has done for the girls in her classes 'and for
the honor of the school. Her enthusiastic interest in
all her class work has enabled the girls to enjoy and
appreciate the various games and exercises. She has
also taught them what true sportsmanship is and
Why we should have it. In basketball, as well as in
all other sports, she has entered with a good spirit
irrespective of the ability of the players or the num-
ber of candidates. Her excellent coaching in swim-
ming will always be remembered, for the success of
the swimming team is due to her willingness to co-
operate with the girls and to do her utmost for the

The Gilbert high school students certainly have pep, and plenty of it, but it takes
our cheerleaders to bring it to the surface. This yearwe were very fortunate in secur-
ing two willing and capable cheerleaders, Bernice Komatar and Willard Borden.
Through their graceful motions and happy dispositions, Bernice and Willard enthused
the students body with Gilbert's "pet brand of pep" and through the loyal support of
the rooters have spurred the Orange and Black on to victory, Every Friday just before
the games, pep meetings were held in assembly. To the cheerleaders goes much of the
credit for the successful pep meetings and the development of school spirit.

T the opening of the football season last fall Coach Barnes began immediately to
try to find new men to fill ilie positions left vacant by the graduates of 1929. Un-
der the leadership of Captain Paciotti many veterans returned, among them ,Eddie
Kern, Uno Maki, John Vucinovich, Louis Zgonc, Rudolph Maurine, Mike Sterk,
Mike Malkovich, Fred Bonacci, and others. Among the sophomore recruits were
Angelo J. and "Scotty" Gentile, Joe Bombich, Uno Reinikainen, and others. Sev-
eral upperclassmen also turned out for the first time. Out of this Coach Barnes was
able to turn out a strong, fighting team.
The Aurora Game
Gilbert's team, composed largely of new men, journeyed to Aurora on September
21, for the first game of the season only to be defeated by the strong Aurora team
by a score of 12 to 0. In two plays the rival team scored a touchdown but failed to
gain the extra point. At the beginning of the second quarter Aurora scored its second
touchdown making the score 12 to 0 in favor of Montgomery's men. The Gilbert team
did not srcm able to get their bearings. The Orange and Black gridders came back
with a fighting spirit in the second half. A great exchange of punts was carried on
and both teams enjoyed the strife. As the last quarter began the Gilbert fans still
expected several crafty plays and breaks which woudl allow the team a touchdown, but
although the Barnesmen played hard they failed to score. Vucinovich injured his
ankle and was forced to leave the game. Aurora recovered a Gilbert fumble as the
final gun was shot, leaving the score Aurora 12, Gilbert 0. Captain Paciotti played
an outstanding game for the Gilbert team.

The Ely Game
The second game of the season proved to be a 20 to 13' victory for the local grid-
iron team over the strong Ely eleven on September 28. The first score of the game
was made by Kern who received a pass from Bombich. Captain Paciotti kicked a suc-
cessful goal. Malkovich intercepted an Ely pass and after a series of gains, Carlo
rushed over the Ely goal. Carlo kicked another successful goal. In the second quar-
ter an Ely pass was intercepted. Gilbert after fighting close to the Ely goal scored
by a pass from Bombich to Kern. This raised Gilbert's score to 20. Ely started the
second half with a furious attack which resulted in a touchdown. In the last quarter
Ely launched an aerial attack, but it brought no results. With about a minute to play
Nicholas of Ely received a punt and raced 70 yards for Ely's second touchdown. He
then raised Ely's score to 13 by a goal kicl-1.
The International Falls Game
The Gilbert huskies met their second defeat in their encounter with International
Falls on October 5. The game began with Kern receiving the kick-off. He carried
the oval to the 25-yard line. Although he Orange and Black gridders fought hard
they could not hold the Falls elevcn from making their two touchdownsg one in the
second quarter and the other during the last quarter. In the second quarter, Gilbert
came within 22 yards of scoring and in the last few minutes of play Zgonc caught a
pass five yards from the goal line but by a fumble Gilbert lost the ball. The game
ended with the Border team punting to Gilbert.
- The Eveleth Game
Gilbert broke a jinx by defeating Eveleth 6 to 0, on October 19. For the first time
in many seasons Gilbert was victorious over the strong Eveleth eleven. During the
first quarter and at the beginning of the second neither team came near scoring, but
as the 'end of the half drew near, the Gilbert huskies marched down the field challeng-
ing everything to stop their advance. A pass from Bombich on the 15-yard line to
Zgonc gave Gilbert the only touchdown of the game. In the final quarter Eveleth
made a strong attempt to score. Twice Eveleth was within scoring distance of the
goal but they could not break through the strong Gilbert line. The game ended with
the ball in Gilbert's possession.

The Tower Game
The Gilbert squad motored to Tower on October 26 and in a thrilling game turned
what looked like a, sure defeat into a victory by a 20 to 13 score. The Tower eleven
came within a foot of Gilbert's goal in the fifrst quarter but lost the ball on downs.
Tower scored its first touchdown by recovering a fumble by a Gilbert man inside of
Gilbert's goal. Tower's pass for the extra point was unsuccessful. At the end of the
half Tower raised its score to 13. Gilbert's plays were more effective in the second
half because Tower was weakened by lack of substitutes. After a pass from Kern
to Zgonc had brought the ball to the 1-yard mark, Kern plunged for a touchdown which
was followed by a successful kick. Vucinovich tied the score by running 25 yards after
receiving a pass from Zgonc. With less than a minute to play, Vucinovich intercepted
a pass in midfield and ran for the winning touchdown. The game was ended by a suc-
The Virginia Game T
The last, hardest, and most thrilling game of the season was fought on November
2 against Virginia with Gilbert having 7 against Virginia's 14 points. Virginia, in
the middle of the first quarter, carried the oval within two yards of a goal but lost it
on downs. Kern made the first touchdown of the game by an end run from the 10-
yard stripe. An accurate kick by Carlo raised Gi1bert's score to 7. Near the end of
the third quarter, Pepelnjack, the fleet-footed Virginia half-back, raced 50 yards to
score. The score was tied by a successful plunge for the extra point. Again, as the
final quarter began Pepe-lnjack ran 40 yards for Virginia's second touchdown. By a
plunge Virginia raised her score to 14. The Orange and Black gridders fought hard
in an attempt to regain the lead. A furious aerial atiack was launched and three times
Gilbert came within scoring distance but each time was held for downs. The game
ended as a Virginia player intercepted a pass.

- LOUIS ZGONC
"Cat" was a clever player at both defense and offense. He could catch passes and
carry the ball equally well, since he is tall and fast. His regular position was at end.
He is one of the three ends who are graduating.
This was Peter-'s first and last year out for high school football. He played well
throughout the season, for he was a speedy end. He will graduate this year.
Bombich is a product of last ycar's junior high school team who proved to be a
good field general. His skill in the art of the forward pass was uncanny.
Captain Paciotti played at left tackle where he starred for the Gilbert eleven. He
took a berthon the all-range first team. Captain Paciotti hails from an illustrious line
of football playersnile will surely be missed by next year's team.
H UNO MAKI
Experience, weight, and speed made Uno one of the most valuable men on the
team. He foiled many of the opponent's plays, especially wide sweeping end runs. Next
year's team will find it hard to fill Uno's place.
H RUDOLPH KUKAR v
Rudolph is heavy and well fitted to play as a guard. Despite his weight, he is a
fast man. These features made him important on the team. It is fortunate that he will
be back next year.
I9 NB A A 30
Tony is an excellent man for plunging. He is small, but is well built and can stand
the hardest of knocks without flinching. He played both halfback and fullback. In the
future we expect great work from Tony.
Mike played well at the position of tackle. He was a good man on the line who
could always be depended upon to do his share in the game. He will graduate this year.
ANGELO G. GENTILE
"Scotty" is another product of the junior high team. He should make himself a
very valuable man at halfback, since he has two years to play.
ANGELO J. GENTILE
"Ang" played end. Speed and craftiness' made him a useful man on this year's
team. He will be back again next year to make football history.
Uno still has two more years of football and great work is to be expected from
him in the future, for he is a fine halfback, although handicapped by lack of weight.
Although Rudy is handicapped by his left arm, he was a hard hitting guard that
spelled terror to the opponents. The term "fighter" characterizes Maurine.
e is 50
19-F L 30
"Rusty" was Gi1bert's reliable center. He played like a veteran. He used his weight
to good advantage on defense and offense. He will play several more years.
John was an excellent end who rarely missed a pass. Sperd, weight, and height
are the characteristics by which he made himself into one of the flashy ends of the
team. John will be lost by graduation in June.
The history that Malkovich made will be remembered. He was an illustrious half-
back who turned tables on the enemy by intercepting their passes. Mike was also good
at carrying the ball. We are sorry that this is Mike's last year.
Fritz was not heavy, but he was a shifty and a dangerous man when things did
not go right. He is among the many who will graduate.
Emerson played guard. He has weight and speed besides power and determination
which enable him to break through the opponent's line. He will be back next year.
Clifford has the makings of a good football player. He played well at his position
of halfback. It can readily be seen that with this year's experience, he will be a very
valuable man next year.

Prospects For Next Year
Although many of our football boys have played their last game under the orange
and black colors of Gilbert high and will graduate in June, Mr. Barnes will have sev-
eral veterans around whom to build another strong football team which makes the
prospects for a fine season bright. Joe Bombich, last season's quarterback, will be back.
Mr. Barnes has among the letter men for the halfback positions Clifford Noble, Uno
Reinikainen, "Scotty" Gentile. George Rusestine, who played center, will again be
eligible for play. Tony Tellerico plays well either as a half or fullback. Among the
guards who will return are: Rudolph Kukar, Rudolph Maurine, and Emerson Kieren.
For an end position, the team will have Angelo J. Gentile as a candidate. Besides these
letter men, there will be many recruits from the junior high squad, so G. H. S. should
have a season which will go down as football history.

C"HE Gilbert basketeers began the season by playing against the alumni. The alumni
consistcd of two teams of former high school players. One was from Virginia
Junior collegeg the other from Eveleth Junior college. At first the game was a
one-sided contest in the high school's favor, but in the last stanza the alumni by
fast playing increased their score by thirteen points, while the high school only'
added three. The game ended 22-20 in the high school's favor.
BOW T0 DEF EAT
On December 14, Gilbert played its first conference game and was left on the low
and of the score by the Ely five. Ely took the lead near the end of the first canto and
kept it throughout the game, excepting for a brief spell at the end of the half when
when Gilbert led by a 13-12 score. In ihe second half Ely scored eight points 'to Gil-
be1t's four and raised their tolal to twenty. "Cat" Zgonc played an outstanding game
A GLORIOUS VICTORY
Virginia met a decisive defeat from Gilbert on December 20 by a score of 25 to
15. Kern and Zgonc were outstanding in their defense and offense. The victory over
our old rivals was joyously received. It was a fast game and crowded with action.
The Eveleth quint next fell a victim to the Orange an dBlack on the local floor by
a score of 24-18 in a rough game. Kern and Zgonc again starred for the Gilbert five.
Eveleth kept the score quite close to Gilbert's throughout the game.
A THRILLING TRIUMPH
The following week Gilbert motored to Biwabik and defeated the Biwabik players
in a tough game. It was a game of ties and naturally the fourth quarter ended in a tie,
as did the first extra period. In the second period Vucinovich scored three points to
make Gilbert a winner by a 23 to 20 total.
MT. IRON DEFEATED
On the local floor, Mt. Iron was defeated 32-25, adding more laurels to the Orange
and Black collection. The outcome of the game was doubtful till the final quarter.
Both teams held the lead several times. Mt. Iron had the heavy end of the score at the
end of the third quarter. Both teams held the lead several times. Mt. Iron had the
heavy end of the score at the end of the third quarter. During the last canto the
Barnesmen broke loose and scored eleven points to Mt. Iron's three and made the tus-
sle a 32-25 victory.
In a one-sided game at Aurora Gilbert defeated the Aurora five with a final score
of 30-19. Because of Gilbert's air-tight defense, Aurora was forced to resort to long
shots. "Cat" Zgonc, star guard, played his last game under the Orange and Black
VIRGINIA TAKES REVENGE
Gilbert mourned the loss of "Cat," as defeat loomed from the hands of Virginia.
Virginia had been reenforced by two of last year's stars, Slade and Dammen, thus
making them much stronger than at the beginning of the season. Gilbert held its own
for the first quarter, but could not overpower the Virginia quint. Gilbert was the weak-
est in the third canto. The Barnesmen made a futile attempt during the final quarter
to win, but failed. The game ended with Virginia having 24 to Gilbert's 14 points.
Biwabik took its second defeat from Gilbert on the local floor' in one of the fastest
games played here. The score was close through the whole game with each team al-
ternating for the leading position. Not until the final gun went off was it certain who
would be the victors. The score was Gilbert, 175 Biwabik, 15.
ANOTHER LAUREL FOR GILBERT
Gilbert defeated Tower by one point in a hard-pressing game. Although the
Barnesmen had the lead throughout most of the game they found it difficult to outwit
the Tower quint which played a deliberate game with a delayed offense, which is well
adapted to their height. A field goal in the last minute ended the game in Gilbert's
I9 Ma sala 30 Basketball Review
ELY IS DEFEATED
Gilbert motored to Ely on February 2 to take revenge on the Ely quint for the
defeat which the Barnesmen suffered from the latter in the beginning of the season.
Ely held the lead in the early part of the game, but soon gave in to Gilbert, who held
the lead to the end. The substitutes played during the final minutes of the conflict.
The game ended to a tune of Gilbert, 283 Ely, 20.
"GOLD BRICK" VICTORY
The next night Gilbert played on the Eveleth floor, scoring another victory, al-
though the strain of the preceding night's battle had tired them considerably. The Or-
ange and Black quint took the lead in the first stanza and held it through the game.
The tussle ended with Gilbert on the heavy end of a 26 to 20 score. Gilbert took from
Eveleth the "Gold Brick." The two victories of this week end clinched the second con-
secutive conference title for Gilbert.
ANOTHER CONFERENCE TITLE WON
The conference season was closed by the game with Aurora here on February 28.
Each team held the other in terror. The greatest difference in scores was four points
and there were ten ties in the game. Fontechio, Aurora's high point man, starred for
the visitors while Yambrik and Kern were Gilbe1't's bright lights. Yambrik broke the
final tie of the game by making one gift shot. The score was 26 to 25.
The district tournament was held at Virginia on March 5, 6, 7, and 8.
Wednesday night Gilbert played Eveleth and downed them by a 23 to 17 score.
Friday night Gilbert played its second game. Biwabik was a hard fighting foe and it
took all the skill of the Barnesmen to overcome Coach Lee's quint. The final score was
25-22. The next night Gilbert defeated Tower by an overwhelming score of 36-10, prov-
ing that Gilbert without doubt had the right to the district title. The Tower team which
had baffled its other opponents could not penetrate the air-tight defense of Gilbert.
They also found it impossible to check the furious attack launched by the Gilbert
players. After the game the district trophy was presented to Gilbert and medals given
to the Gilbert and Tower players.
At Chisholm where the regional games were held, Gilbert fell a victim of the
Chisholm quint in a heart-breaking game. Chisholm playing on its own floor had a
slight advantage and held the lead throughout the game except at the beginning. Dur-
ing the last half the Gilbert score crept within several points of Chisholm's. The game
ended 32 and 29 with Chisholm in the lead.

ANGELO J. GENTILE
The man who invariably made abasket when put in a game was Angelo J. Gentile.
Although a first year man, "Ang" made the first eight. We all hold great expectations
pending' his basketball future.
Gilbert possessed in Nagolski an all-around man. A rangy build, a dead eye for
the loop, and nalural ability were "Nags" chief assets. His ability to play different
positions was invaluable to the team.
Captain Vucinovich ended a very successful basketball career with a smashing
climax. The much coveted championship of the seventh district was captured by our
team. With uncanny skill under the basket, and startling speed, Sonny Boy was greatly
feared by competing teams.
Yambrik, although a small man, was always big enough to stop his man in a
basketball game. Especially in the tournament games, did he show his ability. He
played a guard position, but was always a scoring threat.
A A- Va
X 1 I
MB ANA 30
Although this was Sundgren's first year, he showed coolness and good passing in
his playing which made him a man to be depended upon when put in the game. Next
year much is to be expected of him.
Zgonc is one of the men that had the misfortune to be unable to play the full year
because of the semester rule. Yet he more than did his part to win the conference
championship. "Cat" will always be known as a fighter and a clean player.
Bombich, with a wonderful control of the sphere, was an ideal guard. When Joe
threw the ball it always found its man. With such men, we should have a championship
team again in the near future.
Kern is without doubt one of the best open field runners that Gilbert has ever
possessed. This brilliant fullback has played his last year for Gilbert, and it will be
hard to find as capable a player for this position.

Boys' Swimming Review
C"HE boys' slate swimming meet, held at Minneapolis, brought to a close a success-
ful year for the Gilbert mermen. Gilbert's only entry in the state meet, Jack Star-
ich, placed third.
The strength of the team, which had for its captain Fred Bonacci, was un-
doubtedly greatly due to the splendid cooperation between Coach Johnson and the
individuals of the teamg and also due to Mr. Johnson's untiring efforts in training
The squad began the season with two easy victories over Buhl. Aurora also twice
fell a victim to the high school splashers. Ely was more fortunate and escaped with
only one defeat by Gilbert out of two meets. An index to the strength of the team may
be had when it is stated that this is the first year that the Gilbert boys' swimming
team has ever defeated Eveleth. Eveleth, however, retaliated by winning the return
meet. Gilbert met Virginia but once and lost to this strong squad.
The different types of swimming were represented by: Reinikainen, Starich, Ar-
thur Poola, Koski, Korpi, Laakso, Johnson, Lindholm and Captain Bonacci for the free
styleg Starich, Kutsi, Pollock, and Armas Poola for the back stroke. Zanna, Rauh,
Laine, and Captain Bonacci were out for the breast stroke. The members of the 160-
yard relay and the medley relay were selected from the above groups. Several letter
men will be missed by next year's squad because of graduation. Among them are:
Captain Bonacci, Starich, Johnson, Koski, and Zanna. Despite the fact that Coach
Johnson is losing several veterans, he has some excellent material left from which to
mold another successful team.

C"'O the call for track candidates, over forty promising young men answered. Most
of the men were rather inexperienced, while several were former letter men. Carlo
Paciotti, a veteran of many seasons, was chosen captain. By the last month of the
season, because of Coach Jonhson's persistent training, the spiked artists were all
in good form.
Representing Gilbert in the 100-yard and 220-yard dashes were Yambrik,
Malkovich, Vucinovich, Johnson, and Brinkman. The 440-yard men were Walled, Kukar,
K. Kangas, Johnson, and Moren. Those participating in the one-half mile were Koski,
Zanna, Maclnnis, Paun, Glatch, E. Mahala, A. Kangas, E. Laakso. We were repre-
sented in high jump by Vucinovieh, Lahli, Maurine, and Roseg in broad jump by Yam-

C'HIS has been an unusually good year for the girls' swimming team and it can be
traced back to virtues of the individual girls and their wonderful coach. Due to un-
limited cooperation on the part of the girls and the unselfish work of Miss Woods,
a first-class team of first-class mermaids was turned out. So well have they
worked that they suffered only two defeats-the first by Virginia through a dis-
qualification and with a score of 39-32, the second by Eveleth with a score of 37-
54. The relay team, however, always came out victorious.
Then on Marach 21, the girls entered in the preliminaries of the state meet in
Virginia with an unusual crowd of backers and a determination to go through. Five of
the girls were entered in the finals and all of them placed. The relay team, consisting
of Captain Teeni Mahala, Jennie Prosen, Gertrude Hogan, and Beatrice Bordeaux, took
first place, winning the state cup. Jennie Prosen and Gertrude Hogan swam in the
100-yard free style and 50-yard free style, placing first and third, respeclively, in both.
In dives, Mary Lopp took third place and Beatrice Bordeaux fourth. Besides the honor
of carrying away the relay trophy, Gilbert had the high-point swimmer. Jennie Prosen
was awarded the individual trophy for making the highest number of points in the
meet. Besides this, Jennie has three medals. Much can be expected of her, as she has
another year in high school.

N activity that interests everybody is basketball between the class teams of the
l high school girls, and the past season was a thoroughly exciting and interesting
The sophomore team, composed of speedy and clever players, won the cham-
pionship over the seniors and juniors. Those participating were: Bernice Komatar,
captain, Sylvia Guyott, Mary Yurehich, Mildred Biondich, Julia Skenzich, Zelinda
Laborie, and Mabel Schweiger.
Although lacking experience the sophomores showed their exponents that they
could play basketball. They defeated the juniors and ihe seniors by a score of 15 'Lo
11. The juniors played well all scason, but the team was not organized and regular.
The seniors put up a hard fight for the championship title. The teams were coached
by Miss Woods and the games were played after school. All teams showed fight and
head work in their attempt to win the championship. The other teams were as follows:
Seniors-Teenie Mahala, captain, Claire Saxine, Wilma Erickson, Elizabeth Hogan,
Lillian Niemi, Angeline Colosimo, Johanna Spanko, and Mabel Berquist. Juniors-
Florence Zulsdorf, captaing Grace Coombe, Gertrude Hogan, Lily Keinanen, Sylvia
Niemi, and Annie Marolt.

"Pleasure and action make the hours seem short."
AOUR years ago a group of skillful athletes showed the junior and senior high
I schools that they could play baseball. They copped the baseball cup that year and
-' have held it for the past three years.
Under the efficient pitching of Teenie Mahala and Claire Saxine the team has
held its own against many excellent teams.
f Johanna Spanko, the catcher on this star team, guarded the home plate so well
that they kept their opponents from bringing in many scores. The alertness and capa-
bility of the different basemen, Marian Nanti, Molly Podlogar, Ilma Rahko, and Wilma
Erickson has also spurred this team on to victories. The fleetness of the fielders is
seldom brought into the limelightg nevertheless, much praise is due to our fielders,
Anita Saxine, Theresa Komatar, Wilma Erickson, Elizabeth Hogan, and Mabel Ber-
quist. These girls also served as short stops, which is a difficult position to play.
' The ability of the individuals on a team is very important, but team work is more
essential. It was the teamwork, fair play, and sportsmanship of this group of girls
which has made them champions for the past three years.
Much credit is due to Miss Woods, who has taught all the girls how to enjoy the
various sports. It was her helpful training that made this team the good sports and
victorious players that they are.

ELIEVING that schools should develop strong bodies as well as sound minds, Mr.
Ryan has installed into the program of every school in the district a system of
physical training which is under the direction of Mr. Barnes of the physical train-
ing department. Part of this work consists of regular exercises which are done
each day in the schoolroom and a system of supervised play at recess time. This
work is motivated in such a manner that each pupil participates. During the win-
ter the schools maintain skating rinks at each of the outside schools as well as two
rinks in Gilbert. This year the athletic department sponsored a dog derby in conjunc-
tion with the Gilbert Herald. The climax of this program comes each year in the spring
with the annual track and field meet which is held on the athletic field and to which
each school in the district sends participants.

C""HE first field meet which was held last year proved to be very successful. The
grade contestants were divided into four groups: the midgets, lightweights, mid-
dleweights, and heavyweights. A pennant was awarded to the school making the
most points. The Junior boys were the winners in the high school division. The
Junior girls fthe present Seniorsj also garnered first honors in the high school
division. The Sigurd Moe school of McKinley was awarded first place in the light-
weight division. The Intermediate school of Gilbert won the pennants in the other three
divisions. The awards were presented to the winners at a special assembly program
held in the high school auditorium. In the first annual field and track meet many high
school students took part and won honors. Some of the events which made up the con-
test were the broad jump, the 220-yard dash, the 440- and 880-yard dashes, the high
and lw hurdles, pole vault, broad jump, shot put, discus, baseball throw.

Junior High Athletics
JUNIOR High athletics furnish an excellent training school for senior high ath-
letes. Many prominent senior high athletes first gain practice and training by
being members of Junior High football and basketball teams. Here the boys learn
the rudimcnts of the gamesg they learn the rigorous training rules which an ath-
lete must followg above all they learn cooperation and good sportsmanship. Each
fall, Mr. Johnson issues a call for football candidates. Regular practices are held
and a team is chosen to compete with other schools. Many games are played through-
out the season. Games are scheduled with Eveleth, Virginia, and Leonidas. This year's
Junior High basketball team had an excellent season, for they achieved a goodly num-
ber of victories. The Junior High teams in football and baskeiball are coached by Mr.
R. C. Johnson. Junior High athletics are justified beyond a doubt, for they early
teach a boy to develop his mind and body. This year the Junior High track team out-
ranked all the Junior Highs at the Evelcth Relays.

AOW still the night! How bright the stars! Was it a prohetic feeling that rose within
me? Were impending events tthe cause of my unusual feelings? Was it my
imagination, or did I, an old, old man, feel a sudden insight into the future? I sat
at my cabin door, my day's work done, to enjoy the coolness of the evening shade.
Here I rested and admired the hills in the distance, clouded with the veil of night.
It couldn't be just my mind's fancy! There was something-was it a curtain 'I-
between the skies and the hills. The haze or curtain parted and revealed a most dazz-
ling sight-a beautiful, silvery web from which emerged most harmonious and en-
chanting airs. An airy, fairy creature flew forth, herself surrounded by a web of haze,
and she sang with a tinkling voice, announcing that other magic webs were to follow,
each in its proper turn. This dainty creature was clad in snow-white, and she carried
a golden harp. Her graceful form swayed slowly to the rhythm of the exquisite music
which she fashioned on the harp. Strangely like the "sighing of the reed and the
gushing of a rill" were these ethereal melodies, and as the light grew brighter, I was
able to distinguish the form of Beatrice Bordeaux. Glad was I to learn that "Beatty"
was fulfilling the promise and hopes of high school days!
As the web disappeared slowly, a new one came to take its place-a green one.
An erect black-clad figure walked about in the recesses between my ferns. Two chic
brunette misses sat in the heart of the fernery, bending over their desks, another was
taking dictation. The black-clad man was Donald Kraker, a brilliant orator, world-
famed. Julia Indihar and Rose Dreshar were compiling his speeches into volumes.
Hilma Kangas was taking dictation.
This web faded away and into its place flew a bright, Sparkling gossamer. One
could almost fancy laughter issuing from it. When I could grasp the meaning of the
gay outburst, I saw on a dias, a gay Lochinvar riding a prancing Steed. B:hind him
sat a small, dcmure lady, her hair flowing in curls about her shoulders. Many wan,
upturned faces gazed at tthe performance. Yes, a charity performance given to the
slum children of New York. Mabel Berquist and Heimo Rahko were making a living
picture of romance before these little children, hungering for happiness. To one side
stood three business-like spectators. They were doing charity work: Clinton Carlson,
a prominent figure in businessg Claire Saxine, famous in music circles, and Anna Ma-
hovlich, a newly-rich benefactress of the poor.
Floating and swirling, its threads joined by sparkling gems, came the next web.
A slender lady, gowned in cerise velvet, reclined on a couch. She gazed upon gowns,
marvelous creations of her own mind, which were being appraised by a group of well-
dressed sciety women. They were displayed by two confident and precise women in
Well-tailored suits. An accountant was leaving with some papers in her hand. Near by
stood a man with good humor printed on his face. Madame Hervi with her "French"
blood and Finnish imagination had become a noted designer. Her salon was managed
by the good-humored Herbert Johnson. Elizabeth Hogan and Wilma Erickson directed
the materializing of the designer's creations and Hilppa Ohrn was her accounlant.
Among the customers, I especially noticed Ethelyn Noble, Ingrid Luoma, Lillian Niemi,
and Rose Saletti, society belies.
A black gruesome web flew over the web of brightness and wholly swallowed it.
In the center hung a skeleton with livid fire shining from iis sockets. There stood a

dark man in white costume, with an instrument in his hand. Every time he made an
incision, the fire dimmend in the skeleton's sockets. A white capped interne hovered
close beside him, whie two nurses took down noiations and handed him instruments
from a silver tray. Margaret Hoffner was the doctor's assistant, Ilma Rahko and Mae
Koski were his trained nurses. Peter MacInnis was the great doctor, making dis-
coveries to weaken the hands of Death. A class in nurse training was lined up on one
side, watching the doctor's motions. Among them were Mary Champa, Marietta Kan-
gas, Katie Kovatovich, Sylvia Salo, Johanna Spanko, Emma Spitznagle, and Helen
Kuutti. Peter Zanna and Ernest Saari had stepped in to marvel at the work which
they were backing finacially. '
A patchwork web came next. An artist stood before his easel, putting finishing
touches to his picure. I caught a glimpse of it-there sat a Dutch farmer with baggy
trousers. He had a corncob pipe in his mouth and a peculiar bulb in his hand. Beside
him stood a red-checked representative of Dutch life, wooden shoes and all! She held
a well-shaped cheese in her hand, and smiled ever so brightly. A man with perfectly-set
waves and a lavender shirt stood by, a trim business-like girl beside him. So here was
Charles Maloverh practicing scientific farming in Holland! And Josephine Mesojedec
was the blooming hostess for tourists. The artist was Harvey Gilbert and the on-
lookers Ernest Curnow and his secretary, Beatrice Hawley, touring Europe for a rest
from business worries.
The colors of the patchwork blended before my eyes into a rainbow web. The
sunny laughter of children--little children--floated out as the mist cleared. Someone
was reading, small hands applauded as the voice paused. Each tint, that had been part
of the rainbow, ttok the shape of a tiny tot in rompers-happy youngsters, clamoring
around the smiling instructor who entertained them. At last, I understood. This was a
nursery-school group having a juvenile lawn party with their guardian, Ilma Koski.
Several grown-ups had come to join their fun-Louis Zgonc, president of the school,
Irja Wallenius, the school dietitian, Ily Aho and Jenny Jeglosky, stenographers of the
institution, and Frances Benchina, the 11urse.
This, too, disappeared. The next was a miniature of Japanese life. A little Japanese
maid entered like a butterfly. She was singing "Some Day He'll Come," proudly de-
claring hcr confidence in a husband who--is not to return. I recognized the beautiful
voice and figure of Mary Ann Strathern, playing the part of ':Madame Butterfly" in
the opera of that name. The orchestral accompaniment was not to be overlooked, and
I was not surprised to see Willard Borden in the pit, with raised baton, directing. Just
behind him sat two attentive women, marked as critics-Molly Zadnik and Florence
Hazy clouds covered the beautiful scene and it was farewell to Japan. I did not
stop to think I might be dreaming but drank unheedingly of the promises displayed.
And when I distinctly heard the buzz of a bee, I foretold "Honey"-edible or other-
wise. But a bee rarely finds a habitat in the clouds and I condescended to wait. Closer
-closer-the buzz became a roar, and after a perilous loop stunt, a futuristic airplane
came close enough for me to see. Florence Francel was the aspiring aviatrix under the
tutelage of a smiling Uno Maki, who was happily whistling, HAI ask a if she loves me,
Alaska if she'll marry mc-"
Speaking of Alaska, the clouds turned to snow and a number of igloos. Two es-
kimos appeared and, shedding their furs, revealed orange and black bathing suits. I
MA A 30
recognized Teenie Mahala and Fred Bonacci, our swimming team captains, out for their
early morning swim. In a cloud of snow, a dog-team rushed to the scene. Edwin Koski
and Kalervo Kangas stepped down and began unstrapping the dogs.
"Turn on the heat!"-the snow and ice melted away and a pale lilac-colored web
floated into place. It disclosed a room--a summery one. Four youthful dancing figures
moved about, singing "Turn on the heat, etc." There were tables all around and a gay
laughing crowd of people sat enjoying the delicacies for which the place was famed.
A peppy orchestra was laboring to keep up the spirits of the crowd. Waitresses flitted
about. At one side, within a glass walled-in office, stood a familiar stout figure, beam-
ing produly on all this with an air of ownership. Carlo Paciotti was now the proprietor
of a famous sea-side resort, and was grateful for the help rendered by John Gill's jazz
orchestra, and the dancers, "Josie, Edie, Allie, and Angie," The steward, John Knaus,
gave directions to waitresses, two of whom were Katherine Sterk and Sylvia Toivari.
Other features of entertainment were "Little Jack Little" fformcrly Jack Starichj, the
Two Mikes tMalkovich and Sterki, and Eddie Holmes, the dancer.
Soon a door opened and an animated figure in bright scarlet costume appeared,
followed by a tall, sedate, young lady. They were accompanied by a big athletic man.
Charlotte Thompson, the first of these, had become a professor of Greek drama at the
University of Chicago. She was renowned far and wide for her clear-cut analysis of
the Greek drama. Mary Pacifico, the other lady, was an instructor of social economics,
and John Vucinovich a coach, both also at the same college. The rest of the group
turned out to be fellow classmates of the Class of 1930 of Gilbert High, and here they
were gathered for a reunion. Among them I recognized Vienna Rikala, a faithful ste-
nographer, Lila Alfton, head of the Girl Scout movement in Minnesota, Anita Saxine,
editor of the Ladies Home Journal, Toinie Pellinen, better known as Madame D'Ante,
owner of a Marinello Beauty Shoppe in Virginia, Meryl Culbert and Pauline Skoda,
noted criticsg Eileen Pudas, a modern authorg Vienna Isomaki, a retired speaker,
George Kobe, owner of a chain of grocery storesg Anna Tanko, head of a new Business
Schoolg the Pike Brothers of Wall Street famep Laurie Kivisto and Hjalmer Hautala,
leaders of a new farm relief movement. A
Still another web, the last, a soft gray one, came into view. A man with unruly
hair gazed at a magnificent bridge. He could see but a part of it, for it reached across
Bering Straits to Asia. This was the consummation of his great dream. Three men
stood beside him. Bert Hanninen was a great engineer. Alphonse Anderson, Albert
Phillipich, and John Snyder had been chosen by the League of Nations to oversee the
building of that bridge.
The web faded away. Again the veil of night descended. Slowly, I returned to my
little log cabin, back to reality again-
