The Class of 1924True worth is in being, not seeming,
In doing, each day that goes by.
Some little good—not in dreaming Of great things to do by and by.
For whatever men say in their blindness, And spite of the fancies of youth, There's nothing so kingly as kindness, And nothing so royal as truth.
We cannot make bargains for blisses.
Nor catch them like fishes in nets;
And sometimes the thing our life misses I Iclps more than the thing which it gets. For good lieth not in pursuing.
Nor gaining of great nor of small,
Hut just in the doing, and doing As we would be done by, is all.

I am going to take the privilege of calling our school “The Pioneer" of the people of the surrounding country. That is. it is a pioneer of the new day and age, which perhaps many would have never given much thought. But, for every statement there should be some explanation. To begin with. 1 will make clear what I consider a pioneer and then, the rest will he as easy as falling off a log. in plain English. In speaking of a pioneer one thinks of some one who goes before to remove obstacles, or one who has prepared the way for others. Need we always think of our school as only a construction? Can we not become allegorical and . think of our school as being human? Does not the school call out to you saying, “Come unto me, for I have put all obstacles away, and therefore can prepare you for your life work." Is not that statement true, for where today does one get without an education? Some years ago, one was able to make some sort of living on a meager education, but, today we are often stopped from entering a position because of lack of education, not even a thorough grade school education can fit one for the places that are waiting for competent men and women. But let us not forget that perhaps in time, that may even be insufficient, but for our day and age it is just what we need—a high school education. It at least is the biggest start. For this reason let us picture our school as “Our Pioneer" constructed in the midst of all these people. It is something which can prepare the way for those who must sooner or later enter into the whirl of life toward which we are striving. Why not catch the opportunity while we can prepare ourselves for the positions awaiting us? Now you can readily understand why I call M. C. II. S. “Our Pioneer.”

Each in turn, as we did enter Shall we leave this school of learning,
On our several different missions Some to higher schools of learning Some to eastward, some to westward Will we journey, never resting;
Seeking always something better,
Something brighter, like a rainbow All to learn the one great lesson That our life is what we make it In this world of joy and sorrow May the lessons life will teach us lie an inspiration always To be better, braver, kinder,
To be worthy of our loved ones;
May the Alma Mater spirit Guide us always on our journey.
On a bright morning in September in the year nineteen hundred and twenty, we began a new phase in our life as Freshmen. There were twenty-four of us. Out of this brilliant group we chose Chester Axvall to lead us, Harold Swanson to assist him. Charlotte Johnson to keep a record of our achievement and Clarence Koehler to collect our money. Miss Johnson was appointed our advisor.
Although we did not make a brilliant career in athletics, we had five of our class represented in the track meet. Later on in the fall we received an invitation to a party given by the upper classmen. When we got to the schoolhouse we were blindfolded and led through dark rooms. Then we had to do various stunts, after which we received some refreshments. Xow we had become full-fledged pupils of M. C. II. S., and what did we care then what tortures we had to go through?
In our second year, the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty-one, we entered as Sophomores, much happier and brighter than as Freshmen in nineteen hundred and twenty. Marcella Beise was api ointed commander-in-chief: Geraldine McGinn, her assistant: Clyde Alberg. to keep a record of our accomplishments, and Chester Edlund, the coin collector. Miss Johnson was again appointed our class advisor.
We took an active part in the initiation of the Freshmen. Although we did not permanently injure anyone, we let them feel as though they really belonged to high school and could take part in the various organizations. We kept our high standards this year also by havin°p representatives in Athletics, in the Glee Club, in the bread-baking contest at Hopkins, with the result that many of us were on the Honor Roll.
In the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty-two we began our brilliant career as Juniors. Realizing the tremendous work ahead of us, we immediately organized our class. We chose Ralph Kowalke as our president: Olga Bergstrom, vice-president: Clarence Ohde, treasurer, and Geraldine McGinn, secretary. Although there were many new members in our class, our number was only twenty-three. Harriet Thomson. John Neemes. Ralph Kowalke, Donald Dullum. Paul Swcnsson and Doris Kuske entered our class as Juniors. Miss Mather was chosen advisor but as she left before the school term was completed. Mr. Hofstad was appointed to take her place.
The Athletic standard of the school was upheld by our class; among these were Donald Dullum, Chester Edlund. Clarence Ohde, John Neemes, Charlotte Johnson and Geraldine McGinn.
By the financial success of our program, we were able to entertain the class of '23 to a banquet. This was a success and likewise the program that followed was very good, due to the talented people of our class. 'I his year we also chose our class rings. The classes of 1923 and 1924 dedicated to the school as a memorial. the curtains for the stage.
Half joyously and half regretfully we entered school in the fall of 1923 as Seniors. We knew this was our last year to have fun with our fellow-students and to work with the teachers. Miss True was appointed our class advisor: Kenneth Nelson, our president: Geraldine McGinn, vice-president: Winnifred Turn-ham, secretary, and Paul Anderson, treasurer. One of the first things we undertook to accomplish was the publishing of the Minoway of M. C. II. S.: with Mr. Hofstad’s assistance we have made it a success.

SYNOPSIS OF THE PLAY Time—I'resent Place—The Dangerfield Mansion in Virginia
The four Dangerfield children have rented their old Colonial home to a very well-to-do Northerner. He refuses to be served by the customary Negro servants. They are discharged and a retinue hired from New York. At the last minute, the new hirelings fail to appear.
Since the rental has been made to finance the father’s pursuit of health in a foreign country, the situation is a serious one.
Olivia, the ever alert and inventive young lady, immediately turns her brothers and sisters into servants, even against their vigorous protestations. They suffer many and serious complications in which the natural aristocratic and assumed servile habits of the young Dangerfields fail to fuse.
Crane, after dismissing all servants but the cook, and losing all of his guests, is alone with the cook, Jane Ellen. Despite Randy Weeks’ protestations, they come together and, after Crane recognizes Olivia in Jane Ellen, “they live happily ever after."

It is a rule that History repeats itself. Hut that rule has been openly defied and violated; and by none other than the daring Class of 1924 of Mound Consolidated High School.
Never before in the History of the High School have its annals been able to present such a striking amount of variety as was developed by that Senior Class of ‘24 within twenty-five short years after their graduation. Verily they embody all the spices of life.
Here is the record of that amazing class:
"Having learnt first hand from his last campaign manager, what the terrible effects of feeblemindedness are, Paul Anderson, leader of the Mormons, and Candidate for President in the last election, has established a large private institute for the feebleminded of the nation to keep them away from the rest of the citizens. Mr. Anderson is now a strong advocate of government by the "Intelligentsia.”
Mrs. Ole Olson, nee Charlotte Johnson, as wife of the Mayor of Gazump, is now basking in the matrimonial bliss of a happy marriage and motherhood. With all three of her children at college, Mrs. Olson is again trying her hand at the age-old game of match-making to bring together finally and for all time two school friends and co-citizens of Gazump, Miss innifred Turnham and Mr. Chester Kdlund. After an ardent love affair the two parted on a beautiful spring night after a petty lovers’ quarrel. Miss Turnham is now a prim and much-respected citizen. As to her age, the population of Gazump is still guessing. Mr. Kdlund is a full-fledged member of the "Bachelors Only" club, and, except when his chronic indigestion is extremely bothersome, he is a pleasing and rotund man of leisure.
After ten years of striving for the ixjsition, Marcella Beise has for the last fifteen years been chief bottle-washer for the Mikado of Japan.
Unsuccessful in love, Chester Ax vail underwent an operation guaranteed to make his face irresistible. He now occupies the back garret in a Minneapolis tenement house and subsists on a diet of milk and crackers, earned by shelling nuts and making paper flowers.
Mr. Boris Sineheff now occupies the high position of Chief Inspector at Ellis Island. Since he has undertaken the job there has been little clamor for complete suspension of European Immigration.
"Babe" Jackson, upon learning that in Canada the sexes equal ten males to every one female, taking all her wiles with her, migrated up north. It being leap year, she soon caught the good old scout Ralph Kowalke. They are now tearing down the old log cabin and building a frame one in its place.
Because of a short circuit in the wire, Ethel Terp, while taking a message at Art Gebo’s two years ago, died of electrocution. She remained a "Miss” to the end.
Since the beginning of the tussle between the United States and Japan, Doris Kuske and Angeline Brandtner have been operating Submarine Chasers around about the Philippine Islands.
Donald Dullum was for twelve years the second Valentino of the screen. He is now recuperating at a j)oorhouse in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Miss Harriet Thompson, the noted authoress of Rumpus Ridge, Alabama, has written many books, including her three most famous, “The Undying Pas-

We're just about to cross the bar Twixt things to be and things that are.
We look beyond with eagerness To heights to which we may progress.
With firm resolve we stand erect And linger not in retrospect.
We have the power of vigorous youth To seek to learn the glorious truth
That in the future lies concealed And day by day will be revealed.
If we but firmly keep in mind The one resolve to seek and find.
Thus may we enter with vision clear Upon our solemn senior year.
And prove our worth when we arrive At nineteen hundred twenty-five.

—24-(With Apologies to Shakespeare)
Friends, teachers, schoolmates, lend me your ears;
We come to praise the sophomores, not to knock them.
The mischief they do will probably live after them:
The good is likely to fall Hat.
So let it be with us. The teachers
Have all told you the sophomores arc ambitious;
I f that is so. it is a glorious fault.
And with glory they have proved it:
Here in the sight of all the faculty,—
For they are honorable—that we all know full well,
Come 1 to speak in favor of the sophomores.
They are your friends, faithful and just to all:
You know their worth: they are the banner class.
They are not boastful or vainglorious But are modest, retiring, and unassuming:
When some student would have given up, he was advised; “Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.'’
And they all agree the sophomores are ambitious And the sophomores are an honorable group.
They have received much praise
But which, instead of causing inflated craniums,
Has inspired them to higher things.
Is that ambition? Tis modesty.
You all love them. Why shouldn't you?
What cause withholds you then from giving them Your judgment? Where has it gone?
You have not lost your voices.
Let us hear from you.
Their hearts are with their Alma Mater And their love for her will live forever.

"It’s too deep for me,” said the drowning man as he sank.
As we have a few minutes we will tell you about the Freshmen. We are a large family (49) in all, but very well mannered. This is the best class I have struck yet. Yc get laughed at but we don’t care. We are used to it, and had the joy of revenge with our breeze.
()n 1 lallowe'en we were given an initiation party where every one of the upper classmen had a whack at us. They locked us in the basement, forced us to climb over wire, boards, fences, etc., set us in water, forced raw oysters and salt and pepper soup down our throats with other equally delicious things. And 1 hope everyone didn’t have as good a time as we did.
We had a class meeting and elected Robert Olson, Ira Peterson, and Walter Iverson, as our officers, and selected Maroon and Gold as our colors, and the tulip as our flower.
Three of the Freshmen boys should receive credit for their work on the basketball and football teams.
On the evening of February twentieth the Freshmen decided to give a party, which was well attended, in spite of the stormy weather. The lunchroom and tables were decorated in Red, White and Blue, games were played and lunch was served, and everyone reported a good time.
One day, not long ago, the photographer came to take our pictures. (Everyone was so nervous.) Regardless of the fact that we were excited, we didn’t have our pictures taken over again like some of our friends.
A rule was made that everyone who receives an “A” for a subject will not have to take a test in that subject, and I think we are all working harder. Under the direction of Miss VanCampen, our class advisor, we expect to lie a better class, so you will hear more of us next year.

GIRLS’ GLEE CLUE
The Girls’ Glee Club still remains one of the most popular of the musical organizations of our school. The girls have worked faithfully and have gained good results. “Princess Chrysanthemum." chosen as the annual operetta, was enthusiastically received by the public. A great deal of the success of the Club is due to the efficient work of Miss Johnson, the director, and Marjorie Schoening as accompanist.

The orchestra of Mound Consolidated High School was organized in 1921, by Miss Ruth Johnson, as director. It is now a permanent and stabilized school feature. A high standard of music has been maintained by this organization. Meetings are held each week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, at noon hour. The orchestra plays at Literary Programs and other school activities. It is well organized and reliable and it is one of the best advertisements for our school.

BOYS’ GLEE CLUB
The Hoys' Glee Club of 1923-24 has made a very creditable showing, owing to Miss Johnson's splendid leadership. It has been organized on a more serious basis and has learned to rely on quality rather than quantity. The able and painstaking work of Marjorie Schoening as accompanist has been especially valuable. The boys have furnished excellent music for the school programs and public functions of the community, and their results are in every way very commendable, hive boys out of the Glee Club were chosen for the solo parts in the operetta, “ I Vincess Chrysanthemum."
Chester Axwall played the part of “Prince So-True"; Elmond Hackleman the part of the “Emperor"; Charles Hall, that of “Top-Xot"; Clifford Johnson, that of “Saucer Eyes," and Gordon Pearson, that of “So-Sli."

34—Together with other departments in M. C. II. S.. the Library has become an important factor in the school life, as well as in the life of the community.
The object of our school library is, first, to.aid in cultivating a taste for good reading. It has been said. “Every cheap book makes a cheap boy, and for every book read, you have to leave some other unread."
Our second object is, to supply materials for reference work, supplementary study and independent research.
Our present library is the result of combining the High School Library and Public Library with a branch of the Hennepin County Free Library. It was opened to the public on March 1, 1922, and has had a growth in number of patrons and circulation which far exceeded expectations. The continued increase in the use of books is shown by the late reports. In January, 1924, 1.973 books were issued as compared with 1,856 during the corresponding month of 1923.
Many good things have come to our library during the past year. Notable, is the collection of books which formed the library of the late Robert Henry Crafts, also a valuable set of Historical works, presented by Mr. H. 1. Horton, Mayor of Mound. And last, but not least, is the new home located on the ground tloor of our school building, provided for us by the Hoard of Education, and attractively furnished by the Hennepin County Library of Minneapolis.
For these advantages we are grateful, and in return we shall ever strive to keep in mind, that the library is the scholar's work-shop.

A TOAST TO THE SENIORS
Your magic hark
Sets out from shore; Though clouds are dark And breakers roar.
She starts upon life's sea. Your eager faces Scan the waves:
Your hearts are true. Your souls are brave. For you arc young and free.
The future scaled By stuhl»orn fate,
To lx? revealed Aye soon or late.
With pleasure fraught or sorrow. You can learn As through the years.
You take turns At smiles and tears, Tomorrow by tomorrow.
So take just this From a friend:
Your share of bliss Does not depend On future woe or weal.
Twill all he well With things to he,
Through trough and swell.
On life’s rough sea.
If love is at the wheel.

OLYMPIAN LITERARY SOCIETY
The Olympian Literary Society is composed of all the students of the high school. A student becomes a member upon entering high school.
The purpose of this organization is to promote public speaking, maintain a good spirit, create an interest in good literature, and to he of service to the community. in all the years of its existence this has been carried out very successfully.
This year our school entered the State Debating League, and the debates were held under the auspices of our literary society. This was the first year that Mound has entered the State Debating League and in spite of that our Negative team took first honors in the Lake District. The student body has shown keen interest in these debates and we hope that Mound Schools will continue to take interest in these statewide activities. Louise Brandtner.
—36MOUND HIGH SCHOOL IN DEBATE
In the season of 1923-24 Mound High School made its first attempt in the field of inter-scholastic debating. Since our school is a member of the Minnesota High School Debating League, all the efforts of the debaters were confined to the question adopted by that organization. Resolved: “That European Immigration to the United States should be prohibited by law for a period of five years.”
Late in October preliminary debates were held to select the members for the teams. The following were chosen and placed on their respective teams:
A ffi rmat k r Nega tire
Anuklink Brandtner Alpha Clawson
Paul Anderson Paul Swensson
Norm a n Craft C i i ester Axvall
Mr. Marcell was selected by the faculty as affirmative coach. Miss Kierland was selected for the negative coach. But due to the lack of time Mr. Marcell resigned as the affirmative coach and Miss True, of the English Department, was obtained to take his place.
Two double debates were scheduled with schools outside of the district. The first was with North High School of Minneapolis: Mound lost in this debate. The second of these debates was with Litchfield. In this debate Mound lost also.
A number of inter-scholastic debates were arranged with schools in the district around the lake to determine the district championship. A silver cup was decided upon as the prize for the winning team.
Our affirmative team was scheduled to debate Excelsior on the evening of March 14. The negative team of Excelsior was unprepared to debate on scheduled time so they forfeited the debate to Mound.
On March 14 the negative team debated the affirmative team of Hopkins at Mound. The decision was 3 to 0 in favor of Mound. On March 18 the negative team of Mound debated the affirmative team of Wayzata at Wayzata. The decision was 2 to 1 in favor of Mound. The negative team of Mound has won all the debates on the schedule for this district.

It was in nineteen twenty-one that the girls of the High School first decided to form a club. Under the direction of Miss Perry the (iirls' Club was organized.
To be cheerful and kindly and to seek the highest and best in life has been the object of the club. Our greatest reward would be to know that we have helped in some way and that we have been an inspiration, perhaps, to the other students.
During the year of nineteen twenty-three and nineteen twenty-four. Miss True has been our director, and under her able training we have tried to live up to the principles for which the (iirls' Club stands.

The lli-Y Club, which is now in its third year of existence, has had another active year. The club has had many excellent meetings this year, discussing topics that are of interest to boys and which make for better manhood.
Besides holding its regular meetings the club sent two delegates to the State Older Boys’ Conference which was held at Mankato last November. The two delegates were John Neemes and Elmond Hackleman. It has also contributed to the work of Leonard Paulson, who is doing boys' work in South America. The boys in this way feel that their club is doing work for boys who do not have as many privileges and opportunities as they have. It gives the club a broader outlook.
The club is planning on staging a “Father and Son Banquet” before the end of the school year.
The club meets every two weeks and a business meeting is first conducted and then a program is given in which three or four boys lead, followed by a general discussion of the topic. After the program a period of recreation is held.
The motto of the club is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community a high standard of Christian character.

BOARD OF CONTROL
Charlotte Johnson - President Geraldine McGinn - Seeretary Chester Edlund ----- Treasurer
The Board of Control is composed of eight members, elected from the Athletic Association, including the girls’ and boys’ coaches.
This board acts as the official body of the Athletic Association vesting the judicial, financial and legislative powers. Its purpose is to act on any business concerning Athletics. It furnishes all necessary athletic equipment, which is financed by admission charged for the games.
At the end of the Basketball Season an Athletic Banquet is given in honor of the "M” students. The work of this board is very satisfactory and efficient.

The 1923 eleven, under the leadership of Harold Miller, finished the season with two victories and three defeats. Twenty-two men answered the first call for practice, including four letter men. This was the material Mr. Hofstad had to work with.
Phe team met Excelsior in the first game and surprised them by winning, by a score of 6 to 0, after Excelsior had threatened the Mound goal several times. The touchdown came in the last quarter after a very hard struggle.
The team played Wayzata next on the home grounds and lost by a score of 37 to 0. Experience and weight told the talc.
St. Louis Park was played after two weeks of practice and our boys showed a marked improvement. The visitors made three touchdowns the first half by forward passes, but were held scoreless the last half. The final score being 20 to 0 in their favor.
Excelsior came the following Friday expecting an easy victory, but the fastimproving team could not lie held. Mound beat them by an overwhelming score of 45 to 0. Excelsior threatened to score on a dropkick but missed their only chance.
The last game of the season was played with University High. Mound threatened to score several times on forward passes, but lost due to constant fumbling and playing against a heavier team.

The Girls’ Basketball Team of 1923-24 has worked hard to keep up the good
record of the three preceding years.
Although this year’s team was composed practically of new members the
splendid record has been retained.

The basketball season for the year 1923-24 was rather an unsuccessful one for the boys’ basketball team. “Buzz” Miller was the only veteran back from last year’s team. The other members of the team had had very little basketball experience before this year. Although not very many games were won the boys showed excellent improvement in basketball tactics. They excelled in teamwork. Their greatest weakness was in shooting baskets.
The boys should be complimented on their excellent spirit and sportsmanlike conduct they showed during practice and games played. This compliment was also given them by several of the opposing teams, which of course meant a great deal to the team and the school.
A great many of the high school boys turned out for basketball this year. 1 he prospects for next year look very encouraging. We expect to see M. C. II. S. win her share of the games in 1924-25. ‘ Kenneth Nelson.

—56—There’s A Reason
“Dairies may come, dairies may go, but we go on forever.”
“Milk is the most important and cheapest food given to man.”
Milk is a food, not a medicine.
The value of milk is based on two standards, its value as to cleanliness, and its analysis as to solid content.
Guernsey Milk has 30 to 40 per cent more food value than ordinary milk, one quart of Guernsey Milk contains 800 calories against 600 for ordinary milk.
To illustrate: Take one quart of Guernsey Milk, add to it one pint of water and you will find you have the equivalent of one and one-half quarts of ordinary milk.
There is a special flavor and color in Guernsey Milk contained in no other milk.
An abundant supply of good milk means proper development of the body and mind. No food can take its place, it spells health and HAPPINESS, provided your milk is of known quality.
Order your milk from disease free, tuberculin tested Guernsey cows.

Every day of the week there are nine dollars in bank checks used to every dollar of actual cash that changes hands.
The reason for this is not hard to find.
When bank checks are used they represent money that remains safely in the bank. The risk is eliminated. Checks are also far more convenient and business-like.
Every cancelled check is a valuable record of the transaction—a perfect receipt for payment and proof in case any question ever comes up concerning it.
The checking system is most popular because it is the best method ever devised for handling money.

CLASS HISTORY—Continued from page II basketball team, as they graduate this year. On March 25 a banquet was held at the school auditorium in honor of the athletic students who have earned their "M." There were seven ‘’honor" guests from the Senior class.
Instead of taking up extemporaneous speaking this year. Mound school entered debate work. We were delighted to find that four of our class, Angeline Brandtner. Paul Anderson, Chester Axvall and Paul Swensson, were chosen for the teams. The negative team has won the district championship.
Our class play, "Come Out of the Kitchen.” was given and it proved a great success Our classmate, Olga Bergstrom, left our school to enter a city school. We were very sorry to see her go. The only new member in our class this year is Boris SinchcfT.
We have chosen our motto. "Sometimes B’ sharp, never B’ flat, always 'B' natural." When we receive our diplomas we know that we have succeeded in keeping this motto and that all through the rest of our lives we will endeavor just as strongly to live up to it.

is a most unusual one for her in that it is very hitter, is entitled. "The Joys of a Single Life.”
What accounts for the hcar.ty of Movie Actresses? Why? Paul Swensson conducts exclusive l cauty parlors at Hollywood. Which also accounts for the fact that Paul is still a bachelor.
Clarence Ohde and Gordon Edlund have established a dual monarchy in the jungles of Africa.
The four remaining members of that admirable class are very closely related. A clipping from the New York Tribune, kept in the annals of Mound Consolidated High School, will explain how well they uphold the unusual standards of this unique class.
"Mr. and Mrs. John Neemes, of New York and Newport, celebrated their twentieth wedding anniversary Wednesday evening, June 16th, as befits a couple so highly esteemed and prominent in Society's Inner Circle.
Mrs. Neemes, after having for twenty-two years answered to the name of Geraldine McGinn has now for fifteen years been the dutiful wife of Mr. John Neemes, the Charred Coal Magnate.
Of the one thousand guests at the reception Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Nelson were the most outstanding couple. There arc few people in this world unacquainted and uninformed of the unusual career of Mr. Kenneth Nelson. Not so many years ago he was conducting a men's hoarding house in the Italian quarters of New York. Then he met Irma Olson, the famous Prima Donna, and she married him. She elevated him into exclusive society, and it was shortly after his marriage that he began to win fame as a scientist. He rose rapidly, and after intense research, deep study, and practice of his subject, he discovered the proper way to relax while resting. He is now hailed as the genius of the age for already the number of nervous prostrations has amazingly diminished "
Prodigies are rarely recognized while yet living, but the Senior Class of ’24 is already honored and held up as a standard in all great institutes of learning by those who wish to carry on that praiseworthy slogan "Variety is the Spice of Life.”
