The members were elected for the full year. This plan was adopted by the '41 and '42 council and became a part of the revised constitution. Piloting the group was Lovelle johnson, assisted by Bill Rotramel. Orville Thompson computed the interest on the bank account and Virgil Anderson kept the diary. The leading project of the council was vested in the Homecoming celebration, based on the lumberjack theme, "Paul Bunyan." Other projects included the installation of an overshoe rack which proved beneficial to the students, janitors, and appearance of the school. Instructions for fire and air raid drills were outlined and directed by committees from the council. MHS graduates for the last five years would be pleas- ed to see their class pictures, minus the dust from the attic, adorning the walls of the library. Mr. Burrus acted as faculty representative in the student council. --I-a..,,,,,mN With a Zest for Life The Sophomore Qifioers Iresidtnt Ruth Skritn and Vice President Hazel Frederickson sit patiently by while Treasurer Don Dripps and Secretary Dick Bol- stad convince themselves that the petticoats" aren't trying to put gofzgomo 'ws Teeming with energy, bubbling over with en- thusiasm, the Sophomores, the class with orig- inality plus, added their bit to Morris High activities in staging pie sales at four o'clock, the skirt and sweater hop initiating the Conga line, novel skits for pep fests and the "Juve- nile Jesterf' a super stunt night utilizing Sophomore talent.

The Iten men defeated a strong Benson team 6-0 for their first win which was also a conference game. Next the orange and black defeated teams from Wheaton. Sauk Centre and Appleton. Probably the largest crowd in history ever to watch a high school encounter at Morris was on hand to watch the '4Tigers" go down in defeat very gallantly to a strong team from Glenwood, the eventual West Central Conference Champions. Two other defeats by the Morris Aggies and Monte ended the season for 1941 and high school play for eight seniors, Ed LaFave, Tom Mangan, Bob Wagner, Sandy Sirr, Jack Harris, Captain Bill Rotramel, Frank Snorek and Harry Nelson. Bob Wagner, star halfback of the 1941 team, was named All-Conference while Tom Mangan. Dan Wagner, and Bill Rotramel were named to the second team and Lester Bakke received honorable mention.

Coach lten"s squad opened its conference schedule by downing a fast Appleton team, 41-31. Next two victims of the Tigers were Benson, 44-39, and Litchfield in a very thrilling game, 27-24. Then the MHS quintet met the Benson Plowboys again and snowed them under 36-26. Next to fall before the orange and black were the Willniar Cardinals, 39-27, and a tall Sauk Centre five, 51-37. By rallying in the hnal few minutes of the next game the Tigers eeked out a 34-32 decision over Glenwood, the pre-conference favorites. This cinched the title for MHS, but for good measure they dumped Montevideo, the defending champions, 39-19. The whole of the 1941-42 season was the most successful of any Morris High team with a remarkable record of 19 wins against only 2 defeats.

In the Spirit of Christmas Our Sacred Pageant Nativity scenes portrayed as tabloids in a giant picture frame formed the back- ground for the sacred pageant which ushered in the yuletide season at Morris High School. Over a hundred voices blended together to fill the air with beautiful hymns of praise and rejoicing. This impressive and beautiful pageant was under the direction of Miss Gladys Borstad. Harry Nelson and James Peterson read the old, but ever in- spiring Christmas story. Supplementing the choruses in special arrangements of the old carols were the girls, sextet and the boys, double quintet. A medley of Christmas music was played by the concert band as an overture. ,ff iz 3 3 Recording School Activities The lwalcia Staff "An annual every student will want to ownm was the aim ever before the staff as they went to work compil- ing the 1942 lwakta. Selecting, trimming and mounting pictures, recording of school activities and careful editing of copy were only a few of the details which kept the staff busy on Monday nights-often to the melodious strains of Glenn Miller. Pointers on yearbook lay- outs were gleaned by Editor Daryl Bolstad and Assistant Editor Lovelle Johnson at the MHSPA Convention. The staff includes: Activities, An- nette Arnesong Classes, Norma Ish- erwood, Marjorie Frankg Sports, Bill Rotramelg Music, Clythera Cruzeg Photography, Betty Sisson, Bob XY'agner, jack Harrisg Head Typist, -lean Gustavsong Business staff.

That is always the aim of the staff in making the paper, the official organ of Morris High School, better with each suc- CCSSIVC ISSLIC. Partly for fun and fellowship and partly to learn, fourteen loyal staff members attended the MHSPA at Minneapolis in November.

In Poetry and Prose We Learn, to Interpret To learn how to interpret poetry and prose was the aim of the twelve senior high students taking part in Morris High literary activities. 'The subfdistrict speech contest Was held at Morris this year with four students Win ning superiors in three divisions-Clythera Cruze, in interpretative reading with The Waltz", Don Gunderson in learned oratory with "Pioneer Blood" and Lovelle ohn son and Mary Lou Moffatt in manuscript reading. AAnnette Arneson, Virgil Anderson, Ruth Darling, Barbara Julius, Esther Kroening, Hazel Frederickson and Dorothy Whipple entered in interpretative reading and Betty Sisson in learned oratory. The district contest was held at Breckenridge a week later and Clythera Cruze and Don Gunderson Won the right to enter the regional festival at Wadena.

"Eight sweaters to buy" seemed to be the major problem placed before the group which was advised by Coaches Iten and Osterberg. This year's "M" club boasted a membership of twenty-six athletes, eight of which will receive sweaters. They are: Frank Snorek, Sandy Sirr, Jack Harris, Ed LaFave, Tom Mangan, Bill Rotramel, Bob Wagiier and I-larry Nelson. The club was led by four seniors: Tommy Mangan, Bill Rotramel, Sandy Sirr, and Ed LaFave acting as President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer in that order. -.kx 2 Morris Concert Band Rates High Iractice makes perfect-well nearly perfect, friendly direction of Mr. Leraas the band made ball tournaments, pep fests, and community The marching band was a Welcome sight in and zest with its snappy stepping drum majors and military music.

Morris High Students Musioally Speaking For a "change of paceu Morris High Students gather in the band room to make sweet music. As a part of their repertoire and particular favorites are "The Lord ls My Shepherd" and "The Vale of Tuoni." Arrayed in beautiful new maroon gowns with crisp white collars, the mixed chorus made its second major appearance of the year in the spring concert held just before the festival at Glenwood. There are fifty members in the chorus. The schedule of revolving practice periods held twice each week on Tuesdays and Thursday, under the direction of Miss Bor- stad, was an inovation this year. According to this plan no student has to miss par- ticipation in mixed chorus because of conflict in his schedule of classes. 653' 72 LEFT: Standing: Dick Torgerson, Sandy Sirr, Clytliera Ciuze.

As if young love isn't puzzling enough, they throw in a romantic duo between two teachers. All together it was one grand performance and the cast, Miss Solien and the audience had fun. The Cream of the Crop Soholastioally Speaking Top honors in the classroom go to ten seniors, outstanding in music, forensics, dramatics and journalism. The selection, which is based on their scholastic record at the end of the Hrst semes- ter, includes Lovelle Johnson, Virgil Anderson, Dick Torgerson, Annette Arneson, Clythera Cruze, Betty Sisson, Norma Isherwood, Donna Dournquast, Daryl Bolstad and jack Gausman. t, 1 W ,, fi l is 3 i i - 5 sf 4 A .vii .

I've waited twelve years and now I can hardly believe it's true. Graduation. Isnyt it strange, diary, how different the words sound to me, a senior! When I was a sophomore, diary, the high point in my life was the "Three Ring Cir- cus Partyf' Oh, how hard we worked to make it a success. Things didn't look so bright for us at the start of the junior year with so little money in our treasury and the junior-senior prom staring us in the face-Oh yes, diary-remember the final dress rehearsal when we just couldn't get Aunt Effie's wheel chair over the threshold-and when we forgot our lines in the middle of the first act. And then, dear diary, the trouble and fun we had in transforming the gym into Neptune's Haven. How proud we were when we actually took part in that grand march and it was swell! And then this year-the best of all. Remember, diary, those nights I went up to work on the annual and mother said, "You won't be late, will you?" And I assured her I wouldn't, but there was always so much to be done.
