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.

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 Rossi. Qsxww 4. Av V ' IQQYE 'I L W., W f zz.-gkgwm A ,VW X!

The Class of 1 9 4 8 expresses its gratitude to these school direct- DTS. 'I'he main spring in our timepiece is our superintendent, Mr. George A. Moe, who has spent eight years of his time maintaining high educa- tional standards in our school. Mr. Moe, who graduated from the Moorhead Teachers' College i n 1927, has a Bachelor of Science de- gree and Master of Science degree in administration and supervision. In passing, Mr. Moe leaves us these words of advice by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Do not say, an- other hour of life is gone, but I have LIVED ANOTHER HOUR." We, the class of 1948, express our thanks to Mr. Moe for the inter- est he has shown in our classes and extra.-curricular activities. 80-G!LCZOfg ' G. Moe, H. Holmes, M. Marolt, J. Ocepek, E. R.

His friendly counsel and cheerful encouragement have made difficult situations tolerable. A man of action is our principal who works along with the students in all curricular and extra curricul- ar activities. His very presence in our midst gives a feeling of confid- ence and well being to all. Mr. Sekula has unceasingly at- tempted to make us aware of the necessity of working to our fullest capacity at all times, and has given us vocational guidance throughout our high school career. It is with grateful appreciation that we, the seniors, thank Mr. Sekula for his interest and friend- ship to the Class of 1948. Z N I MR.

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- tion. Miss Shean has the qualities which assure her of a prominent place in the hearts of students and people of the community. W Fifi," iaiifd? f' ' +V nl' i V .

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. First Row: E. Jacksha., M. Feyereisen, J.

Our time in high school is almost finished, but as we look back upon the records we established we feel a certain pride in our accomplish- ments. The most successful class project was the Carnival late in February to raise money for this annual. Several dances have shown the cooper- ation for which this class is known. Seniors have been outstanding scholastically, and have been active in sports and speech work. They form the nucleus of most extra curri- cular activities.

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.

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. I to co-captain Bob Co-captain Bill passes X. K .

M - The Gilbert High School basketball team's record of seventeen vic tones and three defeats, through tournament competition is a record f h' h o W ic we can be proud. Under the guiding hand of John Rossi the Buccaneers came through the regular season with only two defeats at the hands of Ely and Aurora. This year's team worked together as a skilled and smooth machine VV Lfliob Niemi and John Burger made up the forwards. Bill Holmes was in Al the pivot spot and Wes Niemi teamed with Floyd Olson, the captain, at the guards. uf The Bucs played one for all and all for one, which paid off in the winning of the district championship and runner-ups to I-Iibbing in the Regional finals.
