Memories OF Mound Consolidated Higk School PUBLISHED BY THE CLASS OF 1923 MOUND CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL i I i --------———.---------------— •———------——-—We, the Seniors of Mound Consolidated High School, Respectfully Dedicate the First fftCinoway to the Community for the Opportunities Offered Us in our SchoolHIGH SCHOOL BUILDINGMINOWAY—“THE MAGIC VOICE” of Our Alma Mater On the shores of old Lake Langdon, Near the mighty Minnetonka, In a clearing near the lake shore Stands our dear old Alma Mater; In the. rooms so bright and sunny Learn we from the books ot knowledge, Many are the lessons taught us Lessons always worth the learning, Mow the teachers try to help us With their-patient careful training, Try-to make us what we should be Try. to tell us what we can be; Give, us visions of a future Like the sun-rise, bright and golden When we leave our Alma Mater For the world beyond the lake shore. Marjorie Schoening, 1926. + 5“There is a tide in the affairs of men Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. " —Shakespeare. Only a few short years ago. five “Little Red” schoolhouses dotted the shores of Minnetonka. Today there stands an imposing, modern High School building equipped to carry on the process of school education and offering opportunities equal to the best—a fitting monument to the wisdom, foresight and generosity of those men and women in this community who have sought to stem the advancing tide of illiteracy and ignorance which is rising in our land. The boys and girls, and young men and women of the Mound Consolidated Schools have caught this spirit and are showing their appreciation of the o] -portunilies for learning and service so wisely provided for them. Gradually and consistently, enlarged courses of study and new educational activities are being offered designed to teach self-control, leadership, strong character. and independence in thought and action. It is with much pleasure and satisfaction that we welcome the latest and very important school enterprise, “The Minoway" presented by the class of nineteen twenty-three. We believe this, the first High School Annual to be published in our school, will be the forerunner of many more. Hail to the Class of Nineteen Twenty-three! S. M. PINNEY. SUPERINTENDENT $. M.

NEILSON Industrial Arts Department HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1923 Early one morning, four years ago, (luring the month of September, a number of young folks were up at sunrise all getting ready for school. They were all excited because they were going to start high school. As soon as they saw the busses come, they rushed out forgetting their hats and lunches and climbed into the bus. After having arrived at school, they went in at the front door and asked the first person they saw where the elevator was as they were anxious to get upstairs. Of course, everybody was surprised because such a question was asked, but they guessed that they were freshmen. At a quarter of nine, forty-four freshmen were seated in seats at the right hand side of the assembly room. The three other classes sat staring at them because they had never seen such a large number enrolled before. Soon after school opened, the three upper classes welcomed us to school by giving us a party. We were not allowed to take part in the activities that year but we were not disappointed because we knew we had three more years. As the second year of school opened, we w'-ere not as green as we had been the year before. Only thirty-five of our class came back but we were still the Largest class of any. At the beginning of the year our spirit was aroused and we chose our class colors—blue and gold; and our motto. The motto (TO RE RATHER THAN TO SEEM TO BE) suited us because we were determined to be something in the school. We entered basketball, literary work, and the declamatory contest. When the second year came to a close, the other classes thought that we surely had “pep”. Our third year began with only twenty-five Juniors. Loren L. Kuske became one of our group. This year was a busy year for all of us. Resides taking part in the activities vde planned a Junior-Senior banquet which proved to be a success. The seniors had always believed us to be a class worth while and we proved it to them. When school opened in 1922, we entered as seniors to spend our last year. Two new members joined us, Elizabeth Wheeler and Hector Nordquist. We welcomed them into our class heartily because we had lost two of our old members, Gladys 'Haucter and Dorothy Mix, who left to attend another school. This year we presented our class play, “And (Home Came Ted,” which was a big success. As we leave our school, we think of the many happy times we have had together and we wish one another great success in life.

O. W. “Where The Fun Begins” Owned and operated by the Sophomore Class, and located at Mound High School, Mound, Minnesota. Broadcasting the 1922-23 program of the class of 1925 for the 1923 annual. “The first number on our program will be a review of the first party of the season as recorded by the class society reporter. The class of 1925 met at the high school with more talent and historic art than had ever been assembled before. Marvelous feats of ledger domain were mingled with classic readings while clever pianologucs were interpolated between rich humor and dignified oratory. The services of the most famous eaters of Mound had been engaged to prepare and serve refreshments. When the doors of the spacious dining room were thrown open, the dim light of candles revealed decorations simple and refined in treatment; yet, presenting an effect of such artistic magnificence as could only result from the handy work of Mound’s greatest artists. Then followed a feast which for the richness and the delicacy of its food and refined elegance of its service was comparable only to the dinners of state in the days of medieval splendor. From somewhere in the distance came the sound of “taps” which was the signal for the carriages. A sufficient number of taxi cabs was provided to serve those whose chauffeurs failed to arrive.” The next number of our program will be a recital by the class historian of rhetorical events of the school year participated in by the Sophomores. “A contest was held in which representatives of the several classes competed for honors in extemporaneous and declamatory speaking. While the class of ’25 did not win first honors, it gained valuable experience upon which to base its hopes for better success next year. The following will be an account of a sleigh ride party as recorded by the class poet : “Palmer Cox, in days of old In telling tales of Brownies bold, Said: Too many cooks around the pot Will spoil the broth and doubt it not And too many hands to reins applied Will surely spoil the finest ride.” That saying, true so long ago Holds true today, as we well know Like Brownies then, with modern brains We substituted wheels for reins And tied toboggans, single tile Behind the truck for most a mile. We let the chauffeur at the wheel Gage the speed to suit his zeal While we hung on o’er creek and hill And fortune spared us from a spill, And the class of nineteen twenty five Pulled up at day-break, still alive.” The concluding number will be a prophecy by the class prophet: “Hear ye! lllear ye! Hear ye! Be this prophecy spread upon the mystic curtain of the future, to wit that the class of 525 wili leave behind its records for wit, wisdom, and wholesome fun; that will stand for all time; and that Mound will never have cause to blush for any number of this class.” This is station N. O. W. “Where the Fun Begins” signing off until 1924.

Ho! we are jolly good fellows. And as happy as we can be The very best class in the high school. We’re the Freshmen, don’t you see? We have the best class advisor That ever was known to fame. She is willing to help us. Miss Peterson is her name. Our president, Leonard Bernstein, Is the finest boy in the class. He always has his lessons So he never fails to pass. Vice president, Walter Huestis, Is a happy-go-lucky lad, Always bright and good natured, And never seems sorry or sad. To be the class secretary Is the easiest work of all, So we gave it to Marjorie Schoening At class election last fall. The treasurer’s job is the hardest But somebody had it to do. So John Jensen, being a brave boy, Said he would carry it through. When the Freshmen first entered High school They never meant to be mean, But the Sophomores started the trouble By hazing on Hallowe’en. They took us through dim, dark places And bumped us down the stairs; Ajade us shake hands with the spirits To fill us plumb full of scares. One night, I think in December, We had the best party of all. We called it a “hardtime” party It wasn’t a fancy dress ball. Soon after the hard time blow out, The party bee buzzed again. And not knowing what else to do We made it a “sleigh ride” then. Now that is the kind of a class we are And everyone’s glad to know us. If there’s any better in Mound High School, Just bring them out and show us. By Marjorie Schoening.CLASS PROPHECY (By Raymond Bleedorn) It was on June tenth, nineteen hundred and thirty-five, that 1 boarded the train at Washington, D. C., enroute tor the Pacific Coast. After several hours’ travel the train stopped, having been llaggcd by a woman with many pillows, a parrot, and a pug-nosed dog, which she led by a chain. After a short and hot discussion with the brakeman concerning her dog and parrot, she triumphantly entered the coach and 1 recognized Harriet Anderson. Xo need to say 1 whs delighted to see her and introduced her to Hector Nordquist, my traveling companion, whom she seemed to liave forgotten. Harriet had barely settled in the opposite seat and I had told her that Hector and i were going west on a trip, when the train came to a sudden stop. When Hector inquired as to the cause and found out that the track had been washed out, we left at once for the nearest farm house. Upon entering there wje were greeted by a peroxide Brunette, who was none other than Miss Koehler of old Mound. She took Hector out to see her chickens of which she was very fond. “You hatch your own cliackens, i suppose?’’, Hector inquired. “Xo,” she replied, “we alwtays let the hens do that.” After a short discussion Hector went in search of her husband, whom he found bashfully peeking over the top his silo. When the bashful piece of humanity finally descended, it was none other than Norman Engstrom. A joyful evening was spent renewing acquaintance? and discussing old friends. •Among these Norman mentioned Milton, who, after leaving Mound High, had acquired such a mania for having his picture taken, that now he sits before a brick, which he fondly imagines to be a camera, posing from morning to night. And Winslow Batdorf (who would have thought it?) became partially insane shortly after the Annual went to press, due to his untiring efforts as assistant editor. He was taken to an asylum, but escaped and is now living in Wyoming, leading a harmless life as a Stylite or polar saint. The next day (Harriet, Hector, and I continued our journey, and made our next stop at Mound to visit Mound High once more. Here w»e encountered many former classmates. Mound, itself, in its growth had outdone our imagina-tion. In looking over the grounds, we saw Edgar Sterne who now held the honorable position of janitor of the old building, planting bleeding-hearts. He told us to attend the movies to see Elizabeth heeler and Dora Lindahl play rival roles in Cleopatra. On coming out of the movie house we ran across Anna Swianson, who was now famous because of her books. Among the most noted of her books were “Love Aftairs of an Old Maid”, '’The Story of Five Proposals”, and “How to Grow Old Gracefully by One Who Did”.Now Hector and 1 had two old maids in our company. Since it was about supper time and we decided to look for a cafe. Passing the court house, Anne’s attention was attracted by a familiar voice from within. Upon entering we were confronted by Mathew Ilegerlc who looked very dowh hearted. I rving to offer some words of comfort Hector said, “Cheer up, old man! W hy don't you drown your sorrow? ’ Mathew’s mournful reply was, “She’s bigger than I am and besides it would be murder.’’ i le had barely finished speaking when the prosecuting attorney, Joe Linquist, began to fire questions at the plaintiff, who now stood up and raised her black veil. We beheld Pctrea Terp, who was accusing her huband, Mathew, of cruelty and lack of support. As the court proceeded, we learned that Cecelia Malone and Abeline Pederson were the main witnesses for the defendant. After the excitement Anna, Harriet, IHector, and I went to get a delayed supper. Upon entering the hotel we were confronted by Loren Kuske who we found out was bell-boy at the hotel. We were taken to our rooms by a short chubby maid, whom we later found out to be Frances Logelin. The next morning on our way to the station we stopped at a store since Hector intended to buy a shaving mug. Here we saw Evelyn Johnson, who. after many vain efforts to become a world renowned dancer and singer, had finally decided to go back to a more fitting job of floor walker in the ten cent store. A little farther on we saw in large letters, Dorothea Krause’s name, leading woman of a Dancing Academy for Hashful Boys. We resumed our journey westward until we reached Palm Beach, where wife intended to spend the summer. The following afternoon we attended a circus, where we saw Louise Terp, the world’s greatest bare-back rider. She was too popular to notice us. On our way part Margaret Larson’s fortune telling tent, we were hailed by Kenneth Nelson, who had just had his fortune told, (which as usual circled around a light haired, blue-eyed girl.) The next morning Hector was called home on business. This was rather unexpected and spoiled our vacation, but nevertheless we had heard many startling things about our old class-mates.CLASS WILL We tlie Senior class of Mound Consolidated High School, residing in the County of Hennepin and State of Minnesota, being of sound mind and memory, and realizing that this frail school life is certainly limited, do ordain and publish this to be our Last Will and lest anient.

In Testimony whereof, we have therefore omitted our names and affixed our seals on the tenth day of April in the year of our Lord 1923. Senior Class of 1923.FAREWELL SENIORS, FAREWELL! Mid joy at the close of a high school year, Many of the students to us so dear Will go from our presence to a broader lane. Expecting more knowledge and wisdom to gain, With you may success and honor dwell, Farewell, seniors, farewell! Sweet friendships with you, schoolmates, had we, Who in your different paths the world will see. Some of you will gaze on the field of success, Others just continue life’s highway at your best. With you may joyful memory dwell, Farewell, seniors, farewell: We hope your trials will be brief And that the future brings small grief. We of M. C. H. S. will always think of you, And to your mem’ry our thoughts will be true. With you may sweet contentment dwell, Farewell, seniors, farewell! Eflie Hanson. A DOUBLE TRACK !Tis hard to tell what I would do If 1 should get an "A” In all the lessons that I take For one whole dreary day. In sewing 1 forget and laugh. In Math. I chew my gum. My English is a failure, So I sit and twirl my thumb. My science is an awful bore; 1 never can get 4,B”. For iho 1 think I've done real well, The teacher marks me “C”. Seems like 1 try to study, Get my mind on cold hard facts, But 1 always find I’m running On a little single track. So I’ve about decided If 1 want to get an “A”, A double track might do the trick. So I’ll try it out some day. Isabel Me Walters. ---------—----------------» ■■ " -..........................................................- ■ » ■ - — • 32  THE WRECK OF THE JUNIORS With apologies to Longfellow It was the ark M. C. H. S. That sailed the stormy sea. And the Juniors had taken Miss Peterson To bear them company. Blue were her eyes as the fairy flax Her cheeks like the dawn of day. Her "Class Report” note book was in her hand, She carried it all the way. A Junior boy stood at the helm, His pipe was in his mouth He watched how the veering flaw did blow The smoke now west, now south. Then up spake a Junior girl The sanest of the sane I pray you. steer into Langdon’s port, For 1 fear a hurricane. The hurricane came, and with it a squall And Miss Peterson’s frightened looks Were changed to terror when the sky turned black, And rained Geometry books. And pitchforks shaped like big red "F’s”, And often times a "D” Hit her on the head, and then Bounced oft into the sea. "Oh, Juniors,” cried Miss Peterson, Oh, say what may that be?” And a Junior said, "It’s the ghost of the marks We got in Geometry.” “Oh, Juniors, 1 hear a mighty roar. Oh, say, what may that be?” Quoth a Junior “It’s the ghost of our grumbling O’er our marks in Geometry.” “Oh, Juniors,” she wailed, in anguish "If you’ll only take me back I’ll abandon all my wicked ways.’’ So we turned on the homeward track. Woe to the cruel Miss Peterson And to all teachers, woe! For this is what they all will get The next time our marks are low. Winnifred Turnham.A SOPHOMORE PROMISE A Freshman and a Sophomore Coming down the street The Freshie looking green And the Sophomore looking sweet. Said the Freshie to the Sophomore: “What ever do you do To make the wise old world Take off its hat to you?” Said the Sophomore to the Freshie, “Now, dearie, don’t you cry You’ll be a Sophomore Bye and bye.” Alpha Clawson. Note (To encourage the Freshmen in their honest endeavors the following theme is published). FRECHMAN THEAM I think its’ the same to bee a soapmorc as it is to bee a frechman only a little bit differnt. The last Sopfore I seen was scratchin his head in school which is very bad manners, so I guess we R all the sayme. When I was in Misses Jonhson’s room she says to me (tho she proclamed it out lowd) “All what ain’t swollowed ther breakfast will please put it in the waste basket” an I said “Mam this is all we had to eat for over a weak,” an she said, “leave the room emediately,” which I did. Mr. Neelson he says “Boys this means a sero." An I says? “I dint do nothin” an he says “Git in the other ruem to wurk.” It was a funie thing when Misses Gray came in an says “Pull you’re girta back.” But she ment, “Girls pull you’re chares back.” It was shure funny when Misses Peterson says, “Willis stand up, then she slapped him and says, “sit down an she gives him a push. I guess Misses Kreftin don’t do any funny things so we kan laflf. But when it comes rite down to it, tcatchcrs is funny things. Vernon Vandercook. 34 SONG OF THE BOOK REPORT (To the tune of “Old Black Joe”) Gone are the days, when all pupils lived for me. Gone are the days, when they never got a “D”, I want to be long, but I’m going to be short, The teacher will be happy, when she sees this book report. Chorus: I’m coming. I’m coming, but my author’s in a trance, I’d like to be a book report if 1 only had a chance. Where are the folks, once so happy and so free, That sat up all night to get an “A” on me? Gone from this earth, where all memories are short, Too short to write a lesson called a book report. Margaret Jackson. WHEN SCHOOL DAYS LAST PICTURE IS PAINTED (With apologies to Kipling) When school day’s last picture is painted, and the desks are twisted and tarnished. When the oldest book has faded, and the youngest teacher has vanished. We shall rest and faith we shall need it, stop studying for a score or two, Till the Master of all good students, shall put us to work anew. There'll be no teachers to praise them, and there’ll be no students to blame, And they’ll not work for mams, and they’ll not work for fame. But each for the joy of studying, and each for a separate star, Shall know his lessons as he sees them, for the good of things as they are. Clarence Ohde.SCHOOL STUDIES (With apologies to Longfellow) The bells of school were ringing fast, As through the crowded halls there passed A youth, beneath his arms were books, And muttering with downcast looks— Biology! His brow was sad, his eyes set deep. Foretold of many a short night’s sleep, As burning mid-night oil in vain. And striving on, his marks to gain In Chemistry! “You cannot pass,” the teacher said. "Unless you’ll try to use your head.’’ "1 use my head.” the lad replied, And catching up his books he cried, "Geography!" At break of day, on many a morn, A care-worn lad sat all forlorn, As if no other sound he heard. And through his brain raced wild the word, Just History! Then in his mind, though very sad, The good was conquered by the bad; In his right hand the volume took, And threw the unoffending book— Geometry! There in an ash-heap, far away. A torn-leafed, dusty volume lay; On the outside cover, in words aflame. It tells to all the world its name— Geometry! Hector Nordquist.THE ORCHESTRA “Talent and achievement in anv Art live upon the inspiration that public interest can give. A Mozart, a Duse, a Reynolds, are not miraculous accidents. They rise because many less talented have worked faithfully and expressed themselves courageously; and because the public lends support by encouragement.” The Orchestra was organized in 1921 and at once began practicing during the noon hour. There was much amusement among the audience when the orchestra was to appear for the first time, as the general opinion had always been that we had no ability along that line, but the opinion was soon changed. Since then the orchestra has played at the class plays and many programs. We should not forget to mention our appreciation of the faithful work of the pianist, Florence Koehler, who was never too busy to assist Miss Johnson at any time. •+ 37 i rI I I I I I ! Kowalke.

There were only twelve boys in the club the first year but in 1922 more boys joined making the size of the club twenty-two. We are very fortunate in having many excellent voices. There are only a few who will graduate this year, so there will be splendid material left to start with again when the fall term opens in September of 1923. Although the boys have not given any recitals they have rendered excellent music in many school programs and furnished the music for the Father and Son’s banquet held in April. Everyone is especially pleased with the work of the Boys’ Glee Club and we all hope that they will continue to climb their ladder of success. The efficient work of Harriet Anderson as pianist has been a great help to the boys. 38 Upper Row—Moline, Schooling, Bergftrom, Simonson, Wheeler, Iverson, Sinnerty, N. Tournham, Swenson, M.

Besides appearing in many minor programs they gave a very successful recital the first year. The next year they gave an operetta, “The Feast of the Little Lanterns.” The girls did especially well and were heartily applauded by the audience. Encouraged by the results of the last year s operetta they gave another the past year called, “the Feast of the Red Corn” which was rendered very commendably. On Memorial Day the Glee Club assisted bv the various musical organizations will give a pageant, “To Arms for Liberty.” We all enjoy our club and we feel that under the efficient guidance of Miss Johnson we have accomplished a great deal. Much credit is also due to Florence Koehler for her efficient work as accompanist. - - 39THE NOTE OF “C" Seated one day at the organ, (For so the poem goes) I struck a wonderful, beautiful chord. It was the Lost Chord, I suppose. And in this chord there was one note That rattled rather queer. So I took it up. and it told me the tale Which I have repeated here. I am not the Lost Chord. I am not even a .chord, lmt i am that which is much more important—a note, and my name is C. 1 f it weren’t for me, the beginning and ending notes of many a song wouldn’t exist because I am much used in that way. I have a re-markable history! I was l orn in a dying caveman's yell, together with my sisters, ( Sharp and C Mat, and I have been whistled, sung, harped, violined, yelled, and everything cls-ed. but drummed, since 1 detest drums! Horrid, rattly, growly, boomy things! t'gh! in 1492 I crossed the Atlantic Ocean, (my first long trip) in a sail l oat. A sailor sang me once in a while and I barely existed on such little use. I was very thin when I landed, and resembled my sister C Mat, more than myself. A creature designated as an Indian nabbed me and cut me into a flute. There I grew fat and prosj ered. 1 had knocked about in this rough and cruel world until, one day, a friendly looking young woman smiled at me, and 1 began to en-joy existence. I went closer to this young woman, and she seized me—seized me, mind you, and mashed me flat out on a piece of paper! She took me to a most unusual place called Alound Consolidated High Sichool. Later I found her name was Ruth Johnson, and she wanted me for several funny organizations called glee clubs and chorus and orchestra and for showing me to grade pupil. How silly! It wasn’t really bad the first year, but sometimes, instead of singing me, they sang my sister C Flat, and the funny part of it was that they didn’t know any better. Stupid! Hut at the end of the year they put me in an operetta “A Rose Dream” and I felt repaid for all my early torture. However, in the last two years, there has been a marked improvement. Very marked! Oh, very! Now they only sing me when I should be sung which is really astounding! Very astounding! Oh, most astounding! 1 used to be sung wrong, and now 1 am sung right! A chemical change! Ah. yes, a chemical change. Yes, yes— ahem! Winifred Turnham. IATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Athletics in Mound ‘High School is composed of football, boys’ and girls basketball, baseball, boys’ and girls' track and classes in gymnasium work. Any student of the Mound High School is eligible for any or all these events providing he meets the requirements prescribed by the local and State Athletic Associations. These rule? strictly govern athletic events in Mound Schools. Athletics plays a very important part in a school. They help to develop a good school spirit, give amusement both for school and community, help to keep some of the students in school and last but not least, the pupils arc brought directly in contact with the spirit of team-work, fair play and true sport manship. All of which are so essential to the ruccess of an individual in any walk of life. Just this alone is enough to offset any disadvantage for having athletics in a school. Students who play on these teams are awarded M’s in all the events they partake in, providing they have shown good sportmanship during practice and games and have lived up to the prescribed rule?. To be eligible for an M, the student must have played in at least two games of one branch of athletics. These M’s are awarded at the annual athletic banquet. Mound High School and community are proud of its athletic teams. 41HOARD OF CONTROL Officers 1922-23 RAYMOND BLEEDORN, President GERALDINE McGINN, Secretary EVELYN J. JOHNSON, Treasurer The Board of Control is the official body of the athletic association. It is composed of nine members, six of which are elected from the student body of the association and the other three consist of the principal and the girls’ and boys’ coaches. This board meets the second Tuesday of each month. All of the legislative, judicial, and financial powers of the association are vested in this Board. It has the power to punish members' for disorderly conduct, and by a two-thirds vote to expel. The board furnishes the various teams with all the necessities they need in athletic equipment, such as footballs, basketballs, baseballs, bats, suits and lockers. Money used for buying this equipment is received by charging- admission to’ the various games. Accurate records are kept of the minutes and finances bv the secretary and treasurer. This board is doing its work very efficiently. TRACK In the spring of 1921, the I ike District organized a track and field meet. This event was voted to be an annual occurrence. The first meet was held that same year at Hopkins. Our school rook second place. The second meet was held in spring of 1922 at Wayzata. Although we were not as successful as we were the preceding year we received first and second places in some events. The track teams this year should be quite successful as we have considerable material to choose from. Track work in our schools is a comparatively new event and must be worked up.

FOOTBALL Before 1921 football had been a minor sport in M. C. II. S. and was never really supported bv the student body. In the fall of 1921 when Mr. Hofstad called for the first practice, it again seemed a? though Mound would be easy victims for opposing teams; but after several weeks of practice things looked different. Although Mound went down with several defeats it showed that football was taking an equal place with other sports. The 1922 football season was the most successful one in the history of Mound schools. We played seven games and won four. Keen interest is shown in football games by the student body. Mathew llegerle. 43Standing—Blatzheim, Neemes, Sterne Sitting—Lin(|iiift, IHofstad (Coach), Bleedom I legerlc (Captain) BOYS’ BASKET BALL Basket hall lias always been the main s| ort in our school. From the time of its introduction down to the present time Mound has always had a strong team. The 1920-21 season was probably the first real success- in basketball for Mound Consolidated High School. Although we did not gain championship of the district, we were close at the heels of Excelsior for district honors The 1921-22 season war also a very successful one. But Mound was again held to second place bv Excelsior. At the beginning of the 1922-23 season things looked bright for district championship, but due to sickness of some of the players at the time we had our hardest games to play. Mound again lost out. YYc won seven games out of ten games played and scored 247 j oints to our opponents 166. The season was very successful and we still feel that our team is the strongest team of the district. Mathew Hegerle. 44Standing—Koehler, Wheeler, Anseth, Johnson, Brandtner Sitting—Krause, Mather (Coach), Johnson Logelin (Captain) GIRLS BASKET BALL The Girls’ Basket Ball Team of M. C. H. S. has an outstanding record back of it. Ever since girls’ basket ball was introduced into our school we have had exceptionally strong teams. 'Ellis is especially true for the last three years. The 1920-21 and 1921-22 seasons our teams won every game that they played, thus, winning the l ake District honors without a defeat. This year our girls close their season with one defeat losing to Wayzata. They tied Wayzata in the number of games won but won the Lake District honors on a j crcentage basis. Our girls played nine games this last season scoring 250 points against 101 ix ints for their opponents. The girls have a splendid record back of them which is hard to duplicate. Francis Logelin. 45Standing—Hegerle, Edlund, Sterne, I lofstad, Blatzheim, Bronson, Ohde Sitting—Block. Bleedorn, Linguist, Nordquist BASEBALL In reviewing the history of baseball in M. C. II. S. we find that our school always had a good team. We have not always had a champion team but our teams have compared very favorably with other teams in the Lake District. Sometimes' we have excelled. In the spring of 1921 we held the honors, winning every game scheduled. The last year’s record is not as good but we, nevertheless, won our share of the games. This spring we have prospects for a winning team. Seven of last year’s players are back and there is considerable new material to select from. We arc planning on taking all of the bacon this spring.

NIELSON, Advisory Members The Hi-Y Club was organized in the spring of 1922 by six of the older boys of the high school who felt the need of an organization where the boys of the scliool could meet for mutual friendship and to discuss topics of interest to boys. It? purpose is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character, to promote public speaking and provide clean sports for the boys. The club is composed of boys from all four classes in high school who have subscribed to the purpose of the organization. This year the club has been very successful. Besides holding regular meetings every two weeks, the club sent two delegate? to the Older Boys Conference at Montevideo, staged an All Boys Program and Father and Sons Banquet. This club has become a permanent institution. 1 he boys have enjo e-i the work and it is exj ected to be perpetuated by the boys of the years to come. Winslow Batdorf.‘‘GIRLS’ CLUB’’ Officers President, ELIZABETH WHEELER Sec.-Treas., DOROTHEA KRAUSE Vice-Pres., ABELINE PEDERSEN Faculty Adviser, MISS KREFITNG In nineteen twenty-one a Girl’s Club was organized in the high school under the direction of Miss Perry The purpose of the organization is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the high school higher standards, cleaner, and happier lives. All of the girls in the high school are members. Our meetings help to promote friendship, and bring about many valuable discussions. The Club has been very active this year as we have extended our work mainly to l ccome more interested in benefiting ourselves by helping others. We have learned to admire our girl friends in high school, to assist one another in a kind spirit and to be proud of the standards set up by the girls of Mound Consolidated High School.

MATHEWIHEGERLE, Sec.-Treas. EFFIE HANSON, Scc.-Treas. The Olympian Literary Society is an Organization composed of all the students of the high school. A student becomes a member upon entering high school. The society was founded in the year nineteen hundred and nineteen. Miss Perry, principal at that time, deserves a great deal of credit for the work she did in promoting this society. Her suggestion that Mound High School ought to have a literary society was met with approval from the student body as a whole. The purjxjse of this society as stated in its constitution is to form a more perfect school, promote interest in good literature, give students training in public speaking, develop a true school spirit and secure a good opinion of the people of this community. The officers of this society are: the president, vice-president, and secretary and treasurer. They are elected semi-annuallv during the school year. The meetings are held the last Friday of each month. The entertainments are selected by the entertainment committee which is appointed by the president. The committee is composed of two teachers and two members of each class, together with the officers of the society. This society in its four years of existence has meant a great deal to Mound Consolidated High School. Resides the regular monthly programs the society has had representatives taking part in district extemporaneous, discussion, and declamatory contests. At these contests Mound High School Has made a very good showing. Joseph Linqtrist. 49MY LESSONS The shades of night were falling fast, As through a country village passed A youth who bore ’mid snow and ice A note book with this old device, “My Lessons.” His brow was sad, his eye below Flashed with a stern determined glow. Vowed he, ‘Til sit up late tonight And 1 will learn by pale lamplight “My Lessons.” A maiden called to him on sight “Say kid, there’ll be a dance tonight.” A tear stood in his soft brown eye But still he answered with a sigh “My Lessons.” In spite of the pleasures for which he yearned, That wise youth stayed home and his lessons he learned. Quoth he, ‘‘For knowledge I’m all athirst. Be sure that hereafter I’ll always place first My Lessons.” If flunks, my friend, have made you cry, Resolve right now that again you’ll try; And if that resolve you only will keep You’re one who will never have cause to weep Over Lessons.
