pictures and writings the memories of our high school days. This book
represents a tangible reconstruction of the multifarious happenings in this
A careful perusal of these pages will enable you to relive the fleeting
bits of happiness that have been ours through these past years.

During the years Mr. Mehle has been with us, he has al-
ways been a friend to us all as well as an excellent teacher and
advisor. We shall always remember his friendly smile and under-
We, the class of "54" dedicate this MIKANA to Mr.
Anton Mehle whom we will always regard with sincere apprecia-
tion. Education has profited by men of his caliber, who have dedi-
cated their lives to the development and training of young minds.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
e maketh me to lie down in green pasturesg
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art
with meg Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the pres-
ence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head
with oilg my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness, and mercy shall follow me all
the days of my lifeg and I will dwell in the house
of the Lord forever.
In memorium of Ronald Richard Kivela who died
March 30, 1943.

Principal W. J. Kaczrowski. Supp L- T. Lechnerh
I cannot find my way: there is no star
In all the shrouded heavens anywhereg
And there is not a whisper in the air
Of any living voice but one so far
That I can hear it only as a bar
Of lost, imperial music, played when fair
And angel Fingers wove, and unaware,
Dead leaves to garlands where no roses
No, there is not a glimmer, nor a call,
For one that welcomes, welcomes when
The black and awful chaos of the nightg
But through it all, -above, beyond it
I know the far-sent message of the years,
I feel the coming glory of the Light!
Edwin Arlington Robinson
jr. High Principal, N. Shean.
O world, thou choosest not the better
It is not wisdom to be only wise,
And in the inward vision close the eyes,
But it is wisdom to believe the heart.
Columbus found a world, and had no
Save one that faith deciphered in the
To trust the soul's invincible surmise.
Was all his science and his only art.
Our knowledge is a torch of smoky pine
That lights the pathway but one step
Across a void of mystery and dread.
Bid. then the tender light of faith to
By which alone the mortal heart is led
Unto the thinking of the thought divine.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
As enthusiastic Sophomores in the year 1951 we
looked eagerly forward to our first year in the senior
high school of G.H.S. At Hrst we were a noisy bunch.
Echoes filled the corridors as we passed to classes.
However, soon the novelty of being senior high stu-
dents wore off and we resolved ourselves into a year
of studious application. We sponsored a Thanksgiv-
ing dance this year and undertook the selling of pom-
pons and booster pins for the tournaments as two ad-
ditional means of building up our treasury.
In our junior year, things really started to get in
swing. Darlene Kosteliz and Joyce Carroll took their
places as the "B" team cheerleaders and Helen Sereno
and Annette Stupca became cheerleaders for the "A"
Although our junior class play, "Miss jimmy",
proved to be a lot of work we enjoyed presenting it
and it was favorably received by the audience. Our
treasury soon began to swell from the proceeds of our
basketball homecoming which was a great success.
Delores Fugina was queen and Lois Gaeloski and Dar-
lene jofs reigned as princesses of the court. The
duchesses honored from our class were Annette Stup-
ca, Helen Sereno, and Donna Lakso.
March 15, 1953 proved to be a memorable day for
us. For this was the day we proudly received our long
awaited graduation rings. Joyce Carroll held the
honor for the smallest ring with a size 4, and james
Sandstrom for the largest with a size 11.
W'ith NMARDI C1RAS" as our theme the junior,
Senior Prom was the event which climaxed our junior
year. The community center was colorfully decorated
with the Mardi Gras spirit of ballons, streamers, and
a colored moon. The punch was served from the
mouths of two jolly clowns, skillfully constructed and
painted by Ellen Aro and Lois Gaeloski. A wishing
well occupied the center of the dance floor and a
archway decorated with flowers and streamers graced
the main entrance to our "MARDI GRASH.
Now our last year and thirty seniors plus one,
Nancy Bordeaux a girl from Detroit Michigan, enter-
ed the halls of G.H.S. with the zest so typical of our
group. Class elections opened the year officially with
Sylvester Eumia as our president, james Veronick the
vice president, Peggy Mulden the treasurer, janet
Our football homecoming this year was a great
success with a pep meeting, game, bonfire, caravan,
and the coronation dance. Her Royal Highness, Ann-
ette Stupca, was attended at court by princesses, Carole
Stupca and Barbara Kukar, the duchesses were Donna
Lakso and Helen Sereno.
Class meetings were soon being held to decide
upon the many details for our graduation. Our class
motto "We have crossed the bay, the ocean lies before
us," and picking our class flower, the red rose was
decided upon. XX7e chose silver and rose to be our
The culmination of our twelve years of study
came with the baccalaureate and commencement exer-
cises. ln conclusion we express gratitude to our par-
ents, teachers, and all those who have helped and en-
couraged us during the past twelve years.

ln the fall of 1953, twenty-eight enthusiastic 'lun-
iors re-entered the halls of Gilbert High School. Of-
ficers were installed at the class election. They were:
president, Jack Lakso, vice president, Darlene Jofs,
secretary, Marie Malkovich, and treasurer, Barbara
The juniors determinedly set out to improve their
financial status. They began their junior year with a
deticit of 34.80. On November 9, 1953, they put on a
carnival in a gayly decorated gym. Starting in the
afternoon, the carnival consisted of many games and
prizes. The Cakewalk, with prizes being cakes made
by the juniors, proved to be very successful. The
sophomore-sponsored shooting gallery also was well
liked by everyone. Movies were shown during the
day, and in the evening the student council put on a
variety show. It consisted of songs, dances, and a
pantomine. Refreshments of pop, ice cream, hot dogs,
and pop corn were also served during the day and
evening. To climax the evening, a beautiful gold
horse with a clock embedded in it was raffled off.
On December 18, the juniors sponsored the fifth
annual basketball homecoming. Coronation cere-
monies were held at the homecoming dance following
the Eveleth-Gilbert game. Marie Malkovich, with
nine attendants, reigned over the festivities.
Also, in December the boys of the junior class
went out and used their muscles cutting Christmas
trees which were then sold to the school. These trees
were placed in the junior and senior high schools and
lended each room a Christmas atmosphere.
It was a great day for the juniors when their class
rings finally arrived. They claim that their rings are
the nicest that any other class ever had. Every ring
was kept well polished for the next few weeks.
ln the spring, the juniors put on the annual Junior
ior Class Play. The cast under the direction of Miss
M. M. Feyereisen worked hard for many weeks to put
on this play which proved to be very successful.
On May 21, 1954, the junior-Senior Prom, the big
event of the year, was held at the Gilbert Community
Center. A gay atmosphere pervaded the building as
class president .lack Lakso led the grand march. That
night for both Juniors and Seniors will remain as one
of the high-lites.
This past year, the "Class of 1955" has proven to
be very successful in all of its projects, may they attain
as much success in the year and years to come.

After the usual "chatterbox session" which pre-
ceded the opening of the school year, the freshmen of
1952 and 1953 took their first steps into the Senior
High School and were instantly transformed into the
sophomore class of 1955 and 1954.
To the auditorium they then went to hear the
"ring-out-the-old, ring-in-the-new" oration of Mr.
Kaczrowski. Soon they began to delve into the red
tape of the opening days. Class schedules were organ-
ized, homeroom teachers appointed, and books given
to the eager, hardworking students of the sophomore
class. The 10-A students found their home-room
teacher to be Miss Feyereiseng the 10-B class found
theirs to be Mr. Anderson.
The newly formed class then set about to electing
class officers and Student Council members. The lucky
students chosen to govern the class were: Betty Mohar,
president, Ellen Keller, vice presidentg Marlene Sny-
der, secretaryg and Joe Russ, treasurer. Nominated and
elected to the Student Council were Betty Sissila,
Ellen Keller, Roberta Ahlin, joe Russ, and Richard
To increase the volume of their already bursting
coffers, the sophomores set about to the task of selling
pins during the football season. They also had a cork
gun gallery in the junior's carnival, which popped up
by a few dollars the total amount of money in their
"Little Fort Knox".
Activities have been given a beating by the tenth
graders. Musically inclined students get a chance to
shoot their toots in the band, orchestra and in the
vocal groups. The girls have been active in the annual
queen contests, while the boys let off steam in the
junior Rifle Club and on the basketball court.
Thus far, the trainees of the drivers class have
passed their road exams, and received their licenses.
This means safer drivers, and an increase in the sales
of "Model T's" and "Model A's".
Mr. Anderson and Miss Feyereisen want the soph-
omore class to be nothing but tops, and with their able
advising, the new-comers to the senior high have
accomplished a lot.
Seniors were made for great things,
juniors were made for small.
But no one has yet figured out
Why sophomores were made at all.

The literary committee had to rack their brains for interesting topics to present and state them in a man-
ner that would be appealing to the readers. Articles hadto be cut down or enlarged because of space limitations,
and at the last minute, articles had to be written about some item that had been forgotten in the rush. No one
will ever know or appreciate the hard work that was put into this work.
One of the hardest working groups was the layout committee. Almost every night a light was seen shining
in the window of the Mi Kana room and if any one looked in they saw a hardworking group of girls cutting and
pasting. The layout committee has perhaps one of the most difficult jobs on the whole book. They must assemble
the given material into a semblance of neatness and order. They have to leave enough pace for the literary work,
rwlfmntnrrmhhs ' ' '
and art work, so that all are evenly proportioned throughout the volume. They put the entire book
everything, that goes to the publisher passes through their hands. The success or a failure of the
book is vested in their hands.
Without the art work
our book would be drab
and uninterestingg th i s
year we were fortunate to
have a fine artist to make
our annual more colorful.
Do not forget the poor
editors who must make
sure that everyone does
his job. They must suffer
the abuse that c 0 m e s

One of the major activities in the Gilbert High
School this year was the publishing of our monthly
paper, the Orange and Black. Witli Darlene Kosteliz,
our able editor, proddin' us on everyone managed to get
their articles in and the paper out on time.
The staff will never forget the last minute articles
to be typed up, the hurried mimeoscoping and finally the
finished mimeographed product being passed out.
We have tried to put out an interesting paper that
the students and faculty would enjoy. Under the advisor-
ship of Miss Pakola we have thoroughly enjoyed work-
ing on the paper and hope that its success will continue
through the years.

This year, both the band and orchestra made a very good
showing. Their members have practiced faithfully and the results
can be heard in their fine music.
Our band, this year, has played at all of the home games and
at several pep meetings. We had the privilege of being the first
1 Gilbert band to perform in our new gymnasium. Two forma-
tions were executed by the band during the Homecoming -
Dedication game: formed an and then marched into a "G",
L. A' Some of the band members formed a pep band and played at
the out-of-town games. They also played at a few of the last
minute pep meetings. All of the members in this group are girls.
The orchestra entertained between acts of the class plays and
also played at the Christmas program. As in the past they will
be featured at the graduation exercises.
5.2 Through the endless efforts of Mr. Frillici both organiza-
tions have gained much recognition throughout this last year.

The Mixed Chorus and Girl's Glee Club have pro-
vided the music for our Thanksgiving, Christmas, and
patriotic programs. They also sang many fine musical
selections at the spring concert.
But of course their biggest project this year was
putting on the minstrel show UDUSKY CLOUDS". This
was one of the very few minstrel shows ever put on in
our school and the students had a good time presenting
The senior high Triple Trio was one of the most in-
dustrious groups this year. They had the opportunity to
sing at a number of occasions, such as the Christmas pro-
gram, the Pot-Luck Supper, Honor Banquet, poster con-
test and the commencement exercises.
The ninth grade Triple Trio sang Christmas carols
in the halls as did the senior girls' Triple Trio. They have
been a very active group in helping out on various pro-
jects around the school.
A trip was taken to Virginia April 2, where the vari-
ous vocal groups from all the schools assembled to re-
ceive ratings. The final event, the Spring Concert, was
held in May under the able direction of Mr. Jones.

The Gilbert High School Buccaneers started off the 1955 football season
in low gear by being defeated by the Aurora Blackhawks, 27-O. Though the
Buc's play was marked with considerable fumbling they showed their fighting
spirit and stiff defense by holding the victory-bound Hawks scoreless in the
third quarter. They were, however, unable to stop Aurora's thirteen point
deluge which came in the last period of play.
The Bucs suffered their second loss of the season at the hands of the
Nashwauk Colts in a lopsided tussle. This night game was a rough, tough one
They came closer to victory in the homecoming game against the Tower-
Soudan Eagles by holding them to a 6-6 tie. Tower Soudan scored the first
touchdown in the remaining 35 seconds of the third quarter. Gilbert's scoring
pass from Micheletti to Sandstrom was just 3 minutes before the final gun went
off. Both the teams failed the extra point attempt and so ended the homecoming
game for 53.
The rampaging Bucs next sank their teeth into the unbeaten Mt. Iron
eleven and came up with another tie game. After many trips just short of the
goal line the Bucs finally forced themselves into the end zone via a pass from
Veronick to Fumia. The team showed fine defensive play in this well-matched
The next threat to the fighting Bucs was the strong Buhl team. The Bull-
dogs dominated this 26-9 skirmish which was literally "all wet" when it began
to rain late in the fourth quarter.

With their caps set for a victory in the last conference game of the season,
the Orange and Black Bucs trekked to Deer River. The "never say die" Gilbert
team fought their way to a 32-18 decision and their first win of the season. In
order to obtain this victory the Bucs had to penetrate the 18-12 lead that was
held by the Warriors at the beginning of the third quarter. Gilbert's T-D's
were racked up by Nanti, who scored two, and,Micheletti, Sandstrom and Vero-
nick with one a piece. The Buc's passing and blocking in this game proved ef-
fective, and was the main reason for their first victory.
The teams record stood as one win, four losses and two ties when they
went into the final game of the season, a non-conference with the Grand Marais
Vikings. There was no scoring in the first half, but both teams were evenly
matched in offense and defense. After the first touchdown was made by Grand
Marais the Bucs staged an 83 yard drive and crossed the stripe to tie the ball
game at 6-6. Another T-D by the Vikings and another by Gilbert again knot-
ted the score at 12-12. It was an all around even ball game until Grand Marais
scored another touchdown which the Bucs were unable to match. The end of
the game found Grand Marais in the winning column with a 18-12 victory over
Thus ended the 1953 season of play for the Orange and Black. The
laughs, thrills and heartbreaks will remain vivid in our memory as this year's
seniors leave the halls of G.H.S. In departure from their alma mater they leave
behind a tradition to be upheld by the remaining members of the team. This
tradition is their strong fighting spirit, the will to get up and win even though
the odds are against them.

"Ground the Eagles" was chosen as the 1953 foot-
ball homecoming slogan. Homecoming festivities open-
ed with a pep-fest made up of skits and original readings
by the Hy-Dramaticers. A grave yard skit was the main
highlight, with the football players participating. Three
girls, acting as witches, joined to mix a kettle of every-
thing into a brew, signifying the make-up of our team.
At the pep-fest james Veronick announced that Annette
Stupca was to be the 1953-1954 football queen. Follow-
ing the pep meeting a bon-fire and a caravan took place.
The Bucs kept in the shadow of their slogan holding
the Tower-Soudan Eagles to a breathtaking 6-6 tie game.
After a few short breathers all the fans gathered at
the Community Center to witness the coronation of her
majesty by co-captains james Veronick and Robert Nanti.
A dance ended the two day celebration, with the Jimmy
Michael's orchestra furnishing the music.
The queen's court included - princesses, Barbara
Kukar and Carol Stupcag duchesses - Helen Sereno,
Donna Lakso, Ellen Keller, and Darlene jofs.
Escorts were james Veronick, Robert Nanti, james
Sandstrom, Russell Palso, David Lopp, Edward Kodunce,
and Richard Butala.

On November 25, the Gilbert Buccaneers donned their basketball
togs for their Hrst try of the 1954 season. Buhl rolled up a 14 point lead
in the second quarter before the Bucs caught fire and scored 16 points,
narrowing the score to 21-18 at half time. Ten of these counters were
dropped in by Captain jim Sandstrom, who hit for 27, the high point man
of the game. The Gilbert attack came too late, however, and the Buhl five
remained indomitable throughout the game.
In the Gilbert-Biwabik game, the Bucs came through with a decisive,
one-sided victory over the Braves. Gilbert held the lead all through the
game and out classed Biwabik with their evenly divided scoring column.
With one victory under their belt, the Bucs came close to defeating
the highly favored Hibbing team from District 28 in a last quarter come-
back. This thriller was the first game played in Gil-
bert's new gym. After trailing by ten points they
staged their last quarter drive, coming within two
points of the jackets. James Veronick made a bas-
ket with but six seconds to go, but he was fouled
and the basket did not count. He tallied only one
of his two free throw attempts and the game ended
58-57 in Hibbing's favor.
Witli the advantage of their home court, the
Mt. Iron Red Raiders handed the Bucs their first
conference loss of the season. Although both teams
shot well, the Raiders defeated the Bucs by a score

season the Bucs dropped two games, one to Alex-

Gilbert-Virginia game, the opposition controlled the ball game until there
was less than three minutes to go. Then the Bucs went to work and melt-
ed down Virginia's 11 point lead in their traditional last quarter style.
The score was tied at 45--15 with only a few seconds to go when James
Sandstrom netted a shot from mid-court to bring victory to the Bucs.
Gilbert completely out-did the Hermantown Hawks in a 67-33 game.
Red hot Micheletti scored 22 for the winners.
The Bucs came up with their fourth straight win by trouncing Cook's
Little Gophers, 58-42, but tasted defeat in their next two games at the
hands of Tower and Cloquet.
Two free throws brought the Eagles a 60-58 victory over the Bucs
after a close last quarter. The Gilbert-Cloquet game was a one sided vic-
tory for the Lumberjacks.
Gilbert dropped the next two games to Ely and
Esko. In the Ely game a fourth quarter rally nar-
rowed the final score to 66-65. Esko handed the
Bucs their eighth loss of the season when they de-
feated the Kerzie five 60-46 in a non-conference
game played at the U,M.D. field house.
A superior height advantage brought the Falls'
Broncos a 58-49 victory over Gilbert.
The Bucs came out on the bottom of a 68-60
score in a hard fought game against Aurora.
Although Gilbert had gained one win over Bi-
wabik in the early part of the season, the Braves
upset the Bucs in a low scoring game. Gilbert grab-
bed an early lead, but in the final canto they were
downed to the tune of 35-53.
A last second two-

nick gave the Bucs an un- Michael Ahlin, Guard
expected win over the

the Bears when they gain-
ed a 15 point lead by the

This year's basketball homecoming was
much more thar1 just a gala celebration, it
also marked the dedication of the new Gil-
bert High Gymnasium. A pep meeting took
place that afternoon and the announcement
of our new 1954 queen, Marie Malkovich,
was made. Everyone had basketball fever, and
all were hoping to see the Gilbert Bucs pull
through with a victory over the Eveleth Gold-
en Bears. The game was a close one, but the
Bears proved to have more punch and pulled
through with a 56-53 victory over the Bucs.
During the half, Mr. Aldo Frillici directed
the band in formation. Gilbert basketball
teams that have gone to the state and the
1951 State Champions were honored and the
key to the new gym was presented to thf
school by Mr. Paul Damberg, architect.
After the game a dance was held at the
Community Center at which Marie Malkovich
was crowned queen by jack Lakso. The
queens court included - princesses - Bev-
erly Ambrosh and Betty jane Sissalag duchess-

trict 27 Basketball Tournament. It was a hard job for the Bucs to down the
equally determined Embarrass team, but they came through with a decisive vic-
tory thus entering them in the next game with the tournament favorite, Eveleth.
The Eveleth game is one that will be remembered not only by the team
and students, but by the vast crowd that packed into the Eveleth Hippodrome,
and by those who heard the game over the radio. It was a close game all
through the flrst half, but in the third quarter Gilbert gained momentum and
completely out played the Bears, holding as much as a sixteen point lead over
the highly favored opponents. Wlien there was only one minute and twenty-
seven seconds to go the Bucs held a 14 point advantage, the Eveleth Golden
Bears staged a rally that grabbed the expected victory from the Gilbert five. Be-
fore the team had time to gain their bearings, the Bears had nipped the lead
down to one, with 11 seconds to go. A last second basket by Eveleth ended this
heart-breaking game and brought to a close the 1954 season for the Buccaneers.
