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?

The year 1929- 1930 will stand out in history as a great year in the development of aviation as it marked Count von Eckener's flight around the world in the Graf Zeppelin. just as man is succeeding in the great field of avi- ation, so are the students of Gilbert High School succeeding in overcoming the obs- tacles which block "the trail" which leads to success. The staff feels that this book has suc- ceeded in its purpose if it brings a thrill of expectation to the under-graduate, and priceless reminiscences to the alumnus. 7 :1 fi 'giisgl S-I3 3 ix 0 1515 f'Y'k nfs dvr illiKANA 541 If Hanninen, Indihar, Domonoski, Aijala, Kraker, MacInnis, Saxine, Gilbert.

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. All FYNHA :vs x fx M Ama 30 ' 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 to Hawaii. 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." r' H gs 1 " i11?'-!?-" .- it A "' Q I X I' X AN A 30 I LUFTSCHIFFBHU ZEPPELIN G.m.B.

In Memoriam 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.

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- sible." MR. W. J. RYAN, Superintendent of Schools. I it 1 m ania 30 'ii 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. GLENN POWERS, Principal of the Senior High School. an IYNHA nys , , r 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. J. V. LAWSON, Principal of Junior High School. " ' .55 an -.5 A 'rx W . . 5 1 lltifsms 30 N I x t ' so B A A 56 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. df fN'N nn 'K MA 3 ' 1 H. E. Barnes Ph. B.

Zallar Registrar 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 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. . HISTORY 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 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. PHYSICAL EDUCATION 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. PIN fYN FY! :Vs 'I 3 MAMA. 30 The Routes COMMERCIAL COURSE 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. ENGLISH 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. GEOMETRY ' 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. AGRICULTURAL COURSE 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 household tasks. INDUSTRIAL ARTS 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. f' Q esta -- . -:.' .

These honors are conferred on those having the highest standards and medals are awarded at Margaret Hoffner has the honor of being valedictorian of class of 1930, with an average of 94.69. She has worked hard during her four years of high school and is very deserving of the honor. The American Legion Auxiliary medal was awarded to her in recognition of her merit. Anita Saxine Wa schosen salutatorian with an av- erage of 93.2. The best boy and girl ci'izens this year are Anita Saxine and Willard Borden. Anita has been very act-ive in both high school publications, being on the Orange and Black staff andeditor of the 1930 Mi Kana. She was a member of the debate team, the Dramatic club, and Glee club. Her athletic record shows that she has taken an active interest in sports. Anita was best citizen of the junior high in 1927. She was elected to the National Honor Society and is also salutatorian of her class. Wil'ard has been active in many lines this year. He was one of the cheerleaders, a member of the orchestra and band, and played leading roles in the operetta and senior class play. His oratory has made him well known as one of the outstanding expression students, and his trumpet solos were often enjoyed by the students. The American Legion medal, which is awarded each year to the boy excelling in athletics and scholarship, was won by Carlo Paciotti. Carlo has been captain of both the football and track teams and has won many honors for the school in both fields. He has been on the Orange and Black staff, class baseball, and basketball teams.

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 ear. 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 scholarship. 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. -Claire Saxine. X' - '...- ' i ' f' .

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.

I X 19 MiiEQA 30 Requiem 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. INR PYN rvs ff 4 Qwiik 30 'I Junior History 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- dents. 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 freshmen year. 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. -Cecelia Domonoski.

Sophomore Leaders 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. AB fYN nfs fi. N MAMA 30 Sophomore Log 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.

Student Council "That is the best government which desires to make people happy and knows how to make them happy." C' :IE aim of the Gilbert Student Council is to voice the opinion of the student body in communion with faculty members and their administration. All matters relevant to student activities or recreation are the business program of the council. It has been unusually active this year. It has revived the custom of having social hours. 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- portant duty of the Student Council is the nomination of the best boy and best girl ciizens from among the mcmbers of the senior class.

Safety Council "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 doing so. '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. 'vm fN"NnA -'Vs 4 x -Y?

Thrift Council "Economy makes happy homes and sound na- tionsg instill it deep."-George Washington. f"'HRIFT is an important part of the curriculum of the schools of the Gilbert district. 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. I UK. ia .AA V . - Jgixgftyi , . ii. N I Top row-Mr. Powers, Miss Woods, Mr. Barnes. Bottom row-Maki.

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. Ab IYN nfs If X 19 EWB ANA 30 N Mana 30 " Back row-Culbert, Tanko, Strathern, Alfton, Peterson, Isomaki.

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. f - 'Mx I ' V' J . -4"'h-it R1 ' 'Q 'sc 'NIA X H9 Wir A50 Back row-Bombich, Zanna, Ko:-pl, Nagolski, Johnson, Maurine, Koski, Lakso. Front row-Kangas, Yambrik, Pollock, Kukar, Vucinovich, Maki, Lindholm, 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, AR ffifn 1-qs 'Zi Nnhaam 50 L "G" Club 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.

"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. ff KYN nn :vu ,px if 1 AMA Top row-Wsrtinen, Skule, Berquist, Cui-now, Michaletti, Gruden.

F' HE High School Orchestra has completed a very successful year under the direction of Mr. Weeks, who became director of instrumnetal music in October. The orches- tra holds rehearsals every Tuesday and Thursday during the extra-curricular period. The orchestra has displayed much progress. It now numbers thirty mem- bers. The orchestra has played a prominent part in many school activities. It has assisted in many of.the special prpograms. It played at the Father and Son ban- quet in February. Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises also will contain musical entertainment by this organization. The most important event of the year is the May Music Festival in which all of the schools of the range participate. Five members of the orchestra will close their high school musical careers by graduation in June. They are: Laila Alfton, first violing Ernest Cui-now, first violing Claire Saxine, first violing Donald Kraker, first clariuetg Willard Borden, trumpet. lvl IYW IV5 1-vs N MAMA 3 Pipers of Pan "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. x 1 . x X 19 Mn A 30 Top row-Fomatar, C' rlson, Nagolski, Culbert., Paciflco, Isomakl, Saxine, Stark, Indihar, Korpi, Aho.

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.

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. 1-vw fYN nn xl U9 Mi A50 4-yn X Q?

Forensics "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.

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. JG-' .Q A AF, ' -57:1 Y'?'2-libs. X ' H" V if Assemblies 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. If - IYN nn X I imma 30 f' ZX f WTA 30' 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 of activity. 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. s" A A 'ff nil? A Z' - -, f m X 19 MHEQANA 30 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. The English Essential tests given each year have shown an improvement in every grade. The Junior High entered many participants in Field Day events this year. Exceptional talent has been displayed in music, speaking, and such lines at the Junior High assemblies. Plays have been put on by various students and clubs. The orchestra has also contributed to the entertainments. Numbers, both vocal and instru- mental, have been rendered by alumni, senior high and-junior high students. The Junior High' has football and basketball teams composed of students of junior high school which are coached by Mr. Johnson. Both teams have made a fine record. The students have shown their good sportsmanship and pep by giving their teams a wonderful backing. Junior High Best Citizens This year's best citizens for the Junior High school aer Marjorie Fulton and Ralph Kraker. They both have maintained a high scholastic record throughout Junior High school, and both are interested in the extra-curricular activities which the school has. To be chosen as best citizen is the highest honor which a boy or girl in Junior High may attain. The names of the winners are engraved on a tablet. If INGAA N I .

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. -Selected. ss H , as N :gait A X 5 E E l 4 ZW a 5 3 af 1 e li ,v A a n! 5 4 5 E 5 Trophies 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 fourth, respectively. 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. if fY'N nn X I ani s 30 . K if F PHA XO 'T LN Q , x Coach Barnes 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 toward athletics. Coach Johnson 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 Woods 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 team. 15.53 s i aa ,mx l j ,F irm N J ' J-sl!-Q: W ....g'-.71 I r im, wp wx 5' -1:4 J A h 5 J' , - hifi ' . is-pi, xg 1 ' 1 f .fb . .V i Q.

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. Gopher, Gopher, Gopher State Arrowhead country up-to-date Mesaba Range S-S-S! Boom!

Football Review 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. an f'Y'X nn 1 Emilia 30 If Mi Amit 30 " Football Review 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. 5 1 :tif ' 'E' . sl: ' c V A .Q A A X9 Q eu it .

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- cessful kick. 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. blk fY'N nn If ov N ANA 30 ' PBQTBALL.-39 H wi.- saw... vv.. ....,...........Y-ef ,. - 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. PETER ZANNA 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. JOE BOMBICH 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 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. f K, Q B My wr N I X 1 I9 NB A A 30 TONY TELLERICO 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 STERK 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 REINIKAINEN 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. RUDOLPH MAURINE 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. IV! fYN nfs N l, 1' X I e is 50 19-F L 30 GEORGE RUSESTINE "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 VUCINOVICH 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. MIKE MALKOVICH 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. FRED BONACCI 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 KIEREN 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 NOBLE 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. ,ff 1 QS F ,af Q a u, A Y' -feel . ,Egg hw 'iw M3 X I X w A 30 Next Season's Schedule September 27 .... ............. ......

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. if fifinh lynx . Dec Dec Jan. Jan. Jan.

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 for Gilbert. 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. ANOTHER VICTORY 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. Af! fYN rvs ryan ,f .fx 1 AMA 34 Basketball Review 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. AURORA CONQUERED 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 colors. 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. ANOTHER VICTORY 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 favor, 19-18. 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. DISTRICT CHAMPIONS! 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. REGIONAL MEET 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. fN'N nn ff N I N Q .Zh M.M-N,s3i ' 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. CHARLES NAGOLSKI 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 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. FRANK YAMBRIK 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 'if if 42. N f X 1 I MB ANA 30 LEO SUNDGREN 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. LOUIS ZGONC 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. JOE BOMBICH 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. EDDIE KERN 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. If fYN nn asf: X 4 9 MBIKANA 'I Jan. Jan. Jan. Feb. Feb. Feb. Mar.

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 men. 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.

State Meet at Minneapolis if 'U 4, R, . it uomulbwa 50 I Track Review 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- brik and Bonacci. Our shot putters were Captain Paciotti, Kukar, Bonacci, Maki, Mal- kovich. Promising material for the hurdles was found in Vucinovich, K. Kangas, Dun- das, Norman, and Reinikainen. In discus we were represented by Paciotti, Manella, and Kukar, and in javelin by Yambrik, Korpi, and Reinikainen. V INGHA isps x XX Jan. Feb. Feb. Feb. Mar. Mar. Mar. Mar.

O , I O GIIIS SWIIUIIIIHQ 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. Aff f'YN nfs If Q AN,fs3o ' Girls' Basketball 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. -Q , 1, effe- f risk '-43 ' 9 r sl' 027 , L ' Q3 I I it 1 lliiiibs 30 'I Back row-Miss Woods, C.

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.

Field Day 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.

Field Day 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. f' t my .s.s'lfi 'I:lffi .3-1 .f:Q'3S'v.x 1 . .Quia 1 1 I l r E S S A MBEQA AA 30 I CLASS TOAST Here's to our class of nineteen thirty, Her-e's to you one and all, And here's to 1:he dear old Gilbert High A name we like to recall.

Also We give and bequeath to them all the noise in the halls, an dthe right to attend assemblies. To the class of 1931, we bequeath our regular attendance at roll-call and also our most valuable possessions-our report cards. These cards are kept in the school safe, for they are the results of many a well-spent hour. However, we would like to have them distributed among the seniors at the end of every six Weeks, hereafter, so as to urge them to do better work, and above all, we leave our perfect attendance at all times. ' Collectively, we bequeath all the aforesaid. Individually, we will the following: Ily Aho and Jennie Jeglosky vacate their seats in the type-room in the favor of Frances Mastrianni and Christine Majerle. Laila Alfton and Claire Saxinc's places in the "fiddle" row are open to any new Kreislers. Alphonse Anderson wills his hairgroorn to John Erickson.

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 'yi' V vb . 0 . X , -' s Y' ' Lf sf .X ' 'fs-' 5' .alfa 'L "M . ' an . 9 Etdtlhfsalfs 3 it E9 3. 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 Gates. 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 nfs ' fYN YV5 K 'fx 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- Ilma Koski and Martha Hervi. 3' . 5 .
