Senior Class . . . Laura Klepitch and Jean Torala
Gone but not forgotten-the time spent in study hall, math class, and
chemistry lab, those hours spent in the cafeteria and main hall, precious
minutes between classes and during assemblies, pep meetings and gym
classes, basketball games and danc'es-memories of school days which
seem so ordinary now but will live with us for all time.
To hold these 'memories in a more tangible form, we, the senior class
of 1948, presents this MiKana as a pictorial review of the time spent
in our last year of school.

MR. JOHN ROBSI
In the three short years since he has come to Gilbert
High School he has proved himself not only a, capable
teacher and coach, but also has been a true friend to all
of us who know him.
His patience and willingness to cooperate have made
an indelible impression upon us.
Even though Gilbert High School is losing his services,
the things he did will live forever in our memories.
To this teacher, friend, adviser, and leader, we, the
graduates of 1948, dedicate this MiKana to Mr. John

Cold but happy
Those were the dayswwhen we be-
lieved in Santa Claus and Easter bun-
nies. When a game of hop scotch and'
jacks occupied the spare time we now
spend on dances and movies. When we
worried about who would be the fairy
quen in the operetta instead of who
would take us to the junior prom. Yes,
those were the days!
Aren't we cute
Bundled in stocking caps and snow
suits, we faced ,old man winter with a
smile and built snow forts for entertain-
ment. But all the time there were the
spring picnics and marble games to look
forward to. And we couldn't forget those
Halloween and Valentine's Day parties.
Never a dull moment during those pre-
cious grade school days.

Mr. Moe, who graduated from the

In passing, Mr. Moe leaves us
these words of advice by Ralph

LIVED ANOTHER HOUR."

MISS NELLE SI-IEAN
Principal of Junior High Building
ii Time has marched on, but the
seniors can never forget the influ-
ence of Miss Nelle Shean, our grade
school principal and junior high
school supervisor, who has helped to
develop young minds to meet the
great tasks which lie ahead.
Her guidance and skill in forming
our educational habits during these
years have made her an outstanding
figure in our school life.
She has won recognition by her
excellent work with the Safety
Council, which she capably heads,
and is the state president of the
Association of Childhood Education.
She also serves as president of the
Range Kindergarten Primary Asso-
ciation, a branch of that organiza-
Miss Shean has the qualities
which assure her of a prominent
place in the hearts of students and
people of the community.

Our Journey through school is capably guided by memberQW
faculty, whose time and efforts are devoted to molding the minds an
character of their students.
In addition to the many hours of instructing they do each day, many
of them also make it possible for various extra curricular activities by
unselfishly spending after school and evening hours as advisers.
They have inspired us to high scholastic attainments, and, in the
words of Lord Chesterfield, "to do everything we attempt well."
The sincere thanks of the members of the class of 1948 go to the
faculty of the Gilbert Schools for the example of righteous living they
have set before us.

ANTHONY INDIHAR 1930-1940
It is with deep regret that we look back upon the death
of Anthony Indihar during our fifth year of grade school.
The cheerfulness and good sportsmanship of this bril-
liant student made him loved by all who knew him.
The empty desk in our classroom holds for usmany
pleasant memories of a former classmate and friend.

A small fighting and scraping football squad was fielded by Coach
John Rossi this season. The team lead by co-captains, Bob Niemi and
Bill Kozel, faced a. tough schedule with the undaunted spirit, which is
found in every Gilbert team.
Journeying to Deer River in the first game, ,the Buccaneers outplayed
the Indians and returned home victorious. In the first home game of the
season, the local squad folded under the terrific pounding of a heavier
and more experienced Mt. Iron eleven. Coming back strong the Rossi-
men nearly upset the dope by pressing a heavily favored Morgan Park
team to the very limit. The Bucs again met defeat at Buhl and Kee-
watin. In the Homecoming tilt the local eleven dumped the Tower-
Soudan Eagles and the following week end surprised everyone by push-
ing a heavier and stronger Nashwauk team. all over the field, but still
bowing by a lone touchdown.
The season record of two victories and five defeats does injustice to
the Buccaneers. In many of the games they outplayed heavier and more
experienced teams, but through tough breaks and lack of reserves went
down in defeat.
