For us and the alumni may the book reflect ioyous days at Morris High School, to our friends may it reveal the spirit of the school we have learned to love. In publishing our year book we have triecl to change the book to make it dilterent from those of other years. Motif has affected our changes, but most of all we have tried to achieve higher quality rather than novelty.

At the last meeting of the fates it was unanimously decided that all of the Seniors will graduate from Morris High in the spring.

Sflllllli CLHSS HISTURU Fifty-two strong, the nrst class to be graduc.ted from Morris Junior High entered the senior high. Apparently born leaders, they introduced our present student government and made it a success. To the first student council meeting they sent Betty Briclgtord, Dolores Ederer, Dick Smith, and Jerry Probst. Their greatest achievement during this year was the sponsoring ot a carnival. Six of their number had important parts in the operetta, "Hollywood Bound". Their otticers were Janice Hafdahl, president, Wayne Nelson, vice president, Dolores Ederer, secretary, and Gerald Probst, treasurer. At last, as upper classmen, the iunior class presented the play, "The Golf Champ". Dolores Ed- erer and Punk Moffatt captured the leads. With spring came plans for the annual prom. Under a canopy of gaily colored garlands, iuniors and seniors danced to the music of Jack Howard. The ban- quet was served in the Catholic Church basement. That year Jerry Probst was elected president, Dick Smith, vice president, Dolores Ederer, secretary, and Betty Bridgford, treasurer. To the Student Council went: Dolores Ederer, Betty Bridgford, Claire LaFave, Jerry Probst and Dick Smith. Now "high and mighty" seniors, Jerry Probst was reelected president, Dick Smith was chosen vice president, Betty Bridgford, secretary, and Dolores Ederer, treasurer. Bernice Nerhagen, Janice Hafdahl, Claire LaFave, Dick Smith, Dick Behmler, Vergne Marquardt, Robert Walker, were Student Council re- presentatives. l9l LESTER ANDERSON In-s wus "kin4I:t" quit-I tIlll'Illp.Z svlmnl tim--, lull on thv huskvl- h:lII lhnu' ht- xx':lsl1't In ht' Stup- pt-4I!

Reunions, celebrations, great festivities of all sorts, al! because the United States turned out to be the great peace- maker. In living up with the times, the great i940 Senior Class gathered its forces together at the ex- clusive Cruze Inn of Morris, Minnesota. Toastmaster for the great affair is none other than Mr. Kermit Anderson. After that great '30 foot- ball team, Coach was made successor to Bernie Bier- man at the "U" of Minnesota. Miss Carlson, our other class advisor, is now .Xm- erica's foremost women leader in politics. Rumor has lt that she will be our first woman candidate for president. P. D. the water boy Cmcmbcr, Paul lJripps?J went right along with coach and is now the Gopher man- ager. He still does justice to a convict hair-cut. Ret Nelson, being scared ol' machine guns and all that war noise, stayed right home and went to the "U, of M." for Andy. In 10 years he has a record of 250 touchdowns. His greatest enjoyment is a noiseless plane which he turns toward Donnelly every night. Mr. Simonson doesn't know where to seek refuge from autograph hunters. He was awarded the Nobel Prize of Science for the System and geometric plan he has made for reconstructing war-torn Europe. Grace Krause was the one who worked out that stupendous land-water-air-plan, wiping out all oppos- ing forces in the war. She has just completed a trip to 25 American schools and plans to build an addi- tional room at her "Home in the Orchards" for all the metals and honorarlties she has acquired. Punk Moffatt icturns to us from Hollywood, where he has just finished the picture, "String of the Navy" while on leave. He was commander of a squadron in a successful victory on the Goimans. Clarabelle Manska. and Rose- Verna Nystuen, mary Andrusick were called to fill positions left by Morris H1gh's flghting sons, so they took over the chicken farm of Leonard Hagen, Allan Heine, and Lester Anderson, located near the Great Northern water tank, at Morris. Dick Behmler was caught in the act of dropping bombs on Moscow. Stalin had him on probation, teaching all the little Russians the gentle arts of foot- ball. Lillian Ecklund now has to pay the highest in- come tax in the U. S. She and her assistant, Evelyn Winter, developed a new Bullet-proof dress for women during the war, which sold like nothing. fOnly about S500 per dressy. Stepping right into Thomas Dewey's shoes tlucky they were the right size, Dwain Benson is now cleaning up on the outlaws on the sidewalks of New York. Dolores Davidson returned to South Dakota where she instructed the Little Indians in the use of gas masks. Betty Cauldwell's high-school oboe playing really led to something. For tive years she played a Scot- tish bag-pipe in the army and was unable to attend the reunion because she has settlcd down with a Highlander in Scotland. Carlos Houston Comandeered the Morris National Guards in their excellent marching expeditions. As a reward, he was given several of Europe's best race horses, and i now staking their claims. Our former "Prima Donna," Betty Bridgford, has just finished a very successful run at Carnegie Hall. In private life, she is the wife on an assistant Aggie School professor. Dick Smith sorta turned the tables on us: while awaiting the climax of the decisive battle. he enter- tained all the pretty mademoiselles in France and brought back his Cinderella. 4 "No cash, no credit." is the new slogan on Wall Street. Reason is that Claire Lelfave took over the J. P. Morgan cnterprises, becoming the world's fore- most woman banker. LaRayne Meekins and Janice Hafdahl just weren't to be separated after high-school days were o'er- they have successfully operated a night club-skating rink for 10 years, with season tickets for favorites. U Bob Reickman also decided there was no place hke'home and constructed an amateur radio set, twhich really worked! thru which he received latest war news from a similar set, located atop the Leah- ing Tower of Pisa, with Bob Vllalker and Al Swanson gperagng. Incidentally Al does all announcing from is si e. Dud Hollenbeck, Adelia Proudfoot, and Irene Gra- ber helped to keep many a "buddy" warm: that ls, by "Beck, Grab, Foot" stockings for the soldiers. . Sheridan Halbe was entrusted with such an offl- cial job, he could not enlist. It was "Sherdy for Sher- iff" and he won. Feels pretty proud of himself. hav- ing all the cells at the county jail filled to capacity. D Arly Gilbertson reaped a fortune through a muni- tion factory, and now owns a chateau on the Riviera. Most outstanding of the house is the Flame Room, which is in perfect blend with Tookie's hair. A captive was Jerry Probst, caught while trying a new chemical wipe-out on Adolph I-Iitlcr's mustache. 'Course his lJl'llll8.Ilt lawyer girl friend did some quick thinking and his sentence was shortened to 9 hours instead of 99 years. Francis Lampert became employed by the re- search department down at Yankton and has dedicat- ed his latest Cross of the rose and sweet-pea to Miss Trudis Rader. He calls it the Lanipert Bud. Betty Hanson and Mary Galvin grew an idea from the increase in the town's size--they opened the "Gal, Hans?" dating bureau, a truly successful affair. Robert fI'aylor's successor in the recent develop- ment, televrsion, was none other than Vergne Mar- guardt. Critics say his eyelashes photograph much e er. Our gallant little lady, Dolores Ederer, became America's "A", number 1 camp cook: She specialized on hamhergherr, but without ham! Bernice Nerhagen conducts a newly constructed old peoples' and veterans home, with a special guar- antee for a place to live to the entire 1940 class, when they become aged. Energetic Art LeSage and George Judd lead an extremely successful bicycle march to the sea, across Iceland. Fact is. they drove out two herds of reindeer, and scared all the natives into the ocean. Ardcll Gilbertson and Harriette Ettesvold decided two heads worked better than one so they got to- gether and invented a contraption truly ownful of its name-the "Gone With the Wind" hair-dryer. And to a flnal wind-up, if our classmates do us justice, we'll be in prominence soon. Herb Sunquist and Harvey McRoberts are now associate editors of the social register of New Prairie and the 25-mile surrounding vicinity. In ending the affair, all of us who are gathered together salute those peppy 1940'ers and their faculty, hoping that we may meet soon again!

A two-ring circus and the series of high school parties were their contributions to the Morris High's social life. In this class lie the hopes for a fine basketball team.

L Football at Morris is definitely on the upswing, and Coach Kermit Anderson, in his fifth year as head athletic mentor, proved this fact when his team won eight successive games and the West Central Conference Title. This season's undefeated eleven was the first since l9l2. Morris opened with a 6-O win over Glenwood. Le- Sage, scoring on a spinner, opened their highly successful season. More power was displayed when the boys trimmed Wheaton 20-O the following week. Sauk Centre was next to be victimized as the fellows gained revenge for two previous setbacks. A sensational touchdown pass to Wagner and a reverse by Houston made Morris the victor I4-O. When the team made its first appearance at home Osakis was the unfortunate opponent. A powerful defense and offense materialized in a 34-O vic- tory. Homecoming with Wheaton was a huge success as the boys won 33-7. Strong blocking ,as in the preceding games, was a factor in their winning. Players and fans will never forget the Aggie game for all its thrilling moments. Morris trailed 6-O till in the second quarter when they gained a 7-6 advantage. They scored again in the last quarter to put the game on ice 13-6. The fellows won their third Conference game when Benson unsuccessfully invaded them. lt was O-O at the half but Morris scored twice in the last half to win I3-O. The final game was a Conference game at Appleton. Morris won the game and the title 27-O. It was in this game that Ret Nelson, star left half, broke his ankle as he plunged for the third touchdown. Re- taining the West Central Conference Title, which Morris won this year, will be the job of next year's football team. Coach Anderson will have seven lettermen returning from this year's squad with which to rebuild his championship eleven. L ' ln the upper left picture stands the coach of the Orange and Black football squad. "Andy" has vividly proven himself to be an A-i football mentor. Next in line is the Morris High School Honor Athlete. Students of Morris High this year selected an honor athlete. Wayne "Ret" Nelson was chos- en by a popular vote of the student body from fourteen eligible boys of the senior class. Qualifica- tions of the individual were athletic ability, scholarship, cooperation, leadership, citizenship, and at- titude. On the right are the two captains getting a hard workout. A typical Morris charge is illustrat- ed below. There was power plus in every Tiger thrust toward their opponent's goal this season. ln the lower left corner a view of the bench makes it evident that the varsity is building a comfortable lead for the incoming substitutes, The unsung hero of the season, handyman Paul Dripps, is next shown tap- ing "Muggin's" shoe.

The season's record shows 9 wins against i3 losses, but it speaks nothing of the pep and enthusiasm of the players and student body. Never before has a team been given the support that was given the ligerf throughout the season. lt mattered little whether the scoreboard showed a I5-point deficit or if Morris held a commanding lead, the ever-present will to win constantly urged them on. Much credit is due the cheerleaders: May Jean Haskins and Clythera Cruze. They have proven themselves invaluable. The Tigers were continually plagued throughout the season by broken bones, mumps, and other numer- ous illnesses which never allowed them to be at full team strength for any two games in a row. Whenever a crucial game was at hand, someone necessary to help win was missing from the lineup. Pitted against Star- buck, their toughest opponent in the sub-district tourney, they were again minus the services of Ret Nelson, star forward. Morris lost to Starbuck, 30 to 24, but came back the following two nights to trim Cyrus I8 to 46 and win the consolation honors by defeating Alberta 33 to 26. But regardless of a less than 50095 season, fans and players will long remember it for its enthusiasm and thrills from beginning to end.

Although smaller than most Morris High School bands, this band has complete instrumentation and balance. Stylish tull dress uniforms were purchased for its titty-five members who receiv- ed intensive marching drills. The concert band gave several concerts during the school year and participated in the annual music contest. The pep band, consisting of twenty members and led by Earl Eames, maintained the high standard set by its predesessors.

Leraas, Band Director. On March 29, i940 the vocal organizations of Morris High School, under the capable direction of Miss Helen Westby, presented the operetta, "Sunbonnet Girl". This operetta was the third in as many years. lt was exceptionally good because of the decorative and beautiful stage setting and the apt char- acterizations of the actors. The operetta was iust one of the many activities in which the vocal group par- ticipated. Among the others were concerts and a Christmas Pageant. The former were presented in collaboration with the concert band and the latter with the help of a number of grade pupils. Left-Christmas Pageant Below--Operetta..
