SENIGR CLHSS HISTCDRY The Minstrels of 1940 We joined the Minstrel Show in 1937 and eagerly entered into the study of its production. With Lawrence Bodin as President, we progressed rapidly. Ralph Johnson was Vice President and Phyllis Fuller, Secretary and Treasurer. It was in our Sophomore year that the first extra curricular activity, the Camera Club, was organized. We were represented by Phyllis Fuller and Lawrence Bodin in the newly formed organization, the Student Council. As Junior Minstrels we chose as our officers Leonard Iverson, President, Robert Knudson, Vice President, and Sidney Swanson, Secretary-Treasurer. Miss Lola Edwards and Miss Edith Ia Pray were our Advisors. In that year our Student Council representatives were Shirley Kubon, Waynette Riedesel and Lawrence Bodin. Our Class Play "The Patsy" presented under the direction of Miss Pearl Klock, on December 22, was a great success. It was the first play given in the new auditorium. In March the Class got together for a toboggan party which proved to be a great deal of fun. - The Spring Frolic held on April 14 was enjoyed by all. We provedf our worth as hosts when we entertained the Seniors at a Prom given at Hotel Del Otero on May 19. The year's acti-vities closed with a picnic at the Excelsior Amusement Park. As Seniors we undertook with confidence our duties of managing and producing the Minstrel Show. Lawrence Bodin was again chosen to guide us as President. Miss Edith La Pray and Mr. E. L Allen assisted us as Advisors. Robert Deering was our Vice President, Sidney Swanson our Secretary and Leonard Iverson our Treasurer. Those representing us on the Student Council were Arlene Kutz, Beatrice Cavanaugh and Sidney Swanson. The first big event of the year was our Homecoming Carnival and Dance, which started the ball rolling for a year packed with excitement. In January both the Junior and Senior Classes got together for a toboggan party at Oronoi, followed by lunch, dancing, and games at the school house. On March 1, to help fill our badly depleted coffers, the Mohian Staff sponsored a Sadie Hawkins Day. A program, which was presented in the afternoon, ended with the crowning of a "Daisy Mae" and "Lil, Abner." The evening was given over to a costume dance and refreshments. The event was a memorable one of great enjoyment to all who participated. Time moves on to the next and one of our best contributions to the Minstrelsy of 1940. Our class play "Fresh Fields" was gi-ven under the direction of Miss Pearl Klock on April 26. V The next and most gala event of the year occurred on Friday, May 3, when the Junior Class honored us at the Junior-Senior Prom at Hotel Del Otero. Senior Day was on May 17. A program was given and the last Will and Testament of the class was read. On May 31st we rang the curtain down on the Minstrels of 1940. It is not without a sigh and a tear that we leave high school days behind us. May this little book serve to bind us to those days and may the memories grow fonder and richer with each passing year. ff CLHSS WILL ff WE, the Senior Class of Mound High School, Village of Mound, County of Hennepin, State of Minnesota, United States of America, having reached the turn of the decade and having fulfilled all of our educational duties and having imposed upon your hospitality during these twelve years do hereby depart, leaving this, our last will and testament: I.

Everything was just about the same in the school exce-pt for a swimming pool and indoor tennis courts. Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention the lockers. Remember back in the old days when you used to stage a battle with your locker several times a day to get it open? Well, that's all changed now. They've got time locks. Pretty nifty, don't you think? I It was a regular, "Old Home Week," for the class of 1940. The whole class had turned out en masse, and I never would have known that it was the same gang of twenty years ago. They've all made good in some way or another. William Budd has achieved his greatest ambition. He is now chief angler in the Izaak Walton League. Shirley Kubon is working as chief assistant in Miss Petterson's Finishing School in Wyoming. We hear that the sub-debs who graduate from the school are really polished young women. Great fencers, too. Willard Jenkins has been relegated to a desert island for the safety of humanity. On very clear nights you can see bright flashes in the sky. No, they're not Northern Lights, but merely Old Man Jenkins dropping test tubes containing powerful explosives. He's grown shaky in his old age. Leonard Iverson, that brilliant scientist, has accomplished the impossible. He has further improved on Enstein's theory of relativity. Professor Iverson is now planning an extended visit to Mars. Phyllis Fuller is writing an "Advice to the Love-Lorn" column in Edwin Parker's Gazette. Phyllis is so swamped with letters that she is seriously thinking of starting a movement to inoculate everyone against lov-ei. Marilynn Kepke has Marie Vander Hagen and Orville Hagman as her best costumers at Ye Olde Curlee Hairee Shoppe. Mademoiselle De Kepke's shop is New York's most exclusive beauty salon. Gerold Bickley has replaced Ted Husing as ace sports announcer. He has made quite a name for himself in giving a blow by blow description of the battle between the cocks owned by Confucius and Vivian Leigh. Arlene Kutz is private secretary to Elston Palmer, Attorney at Law. Rumor has it that Mr. Palmer has a very good chance of being the next D. A. Gene Anderson is investigating bugs in the dense jungles of the Belgian Congo where he heads an expedition. One of his na-tive bearers, who deserted the party, says that Gene has discovered the Love Bug but has extracted its teeth for the safety of all concerned. Joyce Anderson is in the Metropolitan Opera singing, "Oh Where, Oh Where, Has My Little 'Dog Gone." Don't be surprised if you see the animals from the New York Zoo purring around the stage door of the opera house for you know the old saying, "Music will sooth the Savage Beast." Lawrence Bodin is still up in the clouds. Stanley Shamp and Evalyn Weiland are collaborating on the animated cartoon-Lil' Abner and Daisy Mae., Ralph Johnson has replaced John Barrymore as the great lover of stage and screen in everything but the profile. CLHSS PRCDPHECY CONTINUED Leslie Johnson, our practicing dentist, is looking down in the mouth. Leslie can honestly hold the title of "painless dentist." Robert Deering has grown a smudge on his upper lip and is now chef in Bob Knudson's Hotel. Verona Kasten is hostess. Sidney Swanson has replaced John L. Lewis as labor agitator. Harriet Ledin is 20 years older. Inez Blekre is now employed as a stage decorator at N.H.N.

J. Behmler produced one of the best teams from here in many years. It not only had a lot of height but also fair experience and good reserves. Afte-r losing its first game to Eden Prairie, the team won its next two conference games. Our tall team, beating Robbinsdale 41 to 29 and U High 31 to 19, had the Lake Conference in a ditiher. In conference games after Christmas vacation, Mound lost to Excelsior, Hopkins, and St. Louis Park, but won from Wayzata twice and Robbinsdale again. The climax of Moundis season was its stunning victory over Hopkins, a team which they havenyt beaten in nearly a deca-de. The game was played at Hopkins, the score being 28 to 27. Mound led throughout the game but in the closing minutes, Hopkins gradually closed the gap only to be edged out by one point. The team finished 4th in the conferencej winning 6 and losing 6 games. For the first time in four years, Mound won its game in the sub-district and entered the district tournament where they lost to Eden Prairie 33 to 26. Mound was represented on the All Conference Team with Eugene Ellefson at center. Eugene won the scoring championship of the Lake Conference with a total of 156 points whiclh is an average of 13. points per game. Eugene also holds the 1940 record for points scored in single games. He scored 20 points in the U High game and 20 points in the Park game. The second team lost only three games this year, one to Marshall of Minneapolis and two to Hopkins. Many juniors got first team experience this year and with a second team record such as this, Mound should have a very good season next year. Basketball lettermen for 1939-40 are: Eugene Ellefson, Bob Knudson, Gerold Bickley, and Leona-rd Iverson, Seniorsg Earl Bruhn, Lyle Huff, Melvin Oelrich, and Carl Skreen, Juniorsg and one freshman, Robert Torgerson.
