"WILL THEY UPHOLD OUR REPUTATION?"
The Junior Class has marked eleven eventful years. Probably their biggest achievement was their class play, "Foot-loose.''
The class was under the capable direction of Mrs. Edlund and Mrs. Erickson.
Their officers were Jerry Dodds, President; Walter Peterson, Vice-President; and Elaine Johnson, Secretary-Treasurer. Their representatives in the Student Council were Betty Nelson. Herb Ovall. and Alfred Gale.

"WILL THEY UPHOLD OUR TRADITION?"
The Sophomore Class of 1944. with the beginning of the school year, met and chose officers for the following term. After a small struggle, the sophomores came out of the resulting cloud-of-dust with De Loi Herum as class president, Shirley Torgerson as vice-president, and Janet Jones as secretary. Jean Cavanaugh and Bob Keckhafer received honors in becoming the sophomore representatives on the Student Council. The class has breezed through the year with few unusual mishaps and placed one of our members, Gerald Geyen, as a state champion in wrestling. We all hope the class can keep up the great work in their coming years at Mound.

GREEN NOW BUT NOT FOREVER
We are very proud of the Freshman Class of 1944 for the active part they have taken in our school activities.
These activities included sports, (with our own Junior High cheerleaders), band, chorus, and the school newspaper, the Broadcaster.
May they live up to their great promise of leadership.

Mr. Miltich deserves much credit for building our band to a higher peak than it has reached for many years. The enrollment of the band has slowly crept up to the rather surprising number of forty-seven.
Among members of the band and Mr. Miltich, many good bonds of friendship were made; and when he left because of poor health, his loss was felt very much by members of both the band and orchestra.
This year the band has done much to improve the school spirit with both their music and cheers at the football and basketball games. During the football season the band was there at every home game in uniform to keep the spirit of our team up. They also played at many school programs including the class plays.
During the last three months of school the band held regular practices without Mr. Miltich. It played for several programs and also the sub-district tournament. The band deserves much credit, not only for its fine school spirit and pep, but also for the way in which it has kept together during the last few months of school under the student supervision of Elaine Johnson."MUSICAL MOMENTS"
The Orchestra is one organization that not many realize even exists at Mound High, but nevertheless it has been holding regular practices twice a week all year. It also survived the last three months without its director, but we look forward to the building up of the orchestra with the spirit that is being shown toward it by students in the lower grades.
This year three pretty baton twirlers have not only added pep and spirit to our football games but also a little beauty. They were present with the band at all of our football games, and the group helped to make the Homecoming celebration a real success.
The majorettes are Carol Torgerson and Joan Legus with Elayne Geldert as drum major. All three have worked their hardest to give Mound high a great feature."MIXED VOICES"

After its practice sessions in Room 9 every morning, second period, the Senior High Chorus has blossomed forth with several excellent performances. At the Christmas program, the group, directed by Miss Linde, sang several beautiful choral numbers as v ell as the old, familiar carols. “White Christmas," accompanied by the band, was the climax of that program.
In the Spring the lovely operetta. Rose of the Danube, was presented by the group. This is a tale of dreamy, old Europe with a movie talent scout and a producer added to make it a show not soon to be forgotten.
The Chorus represented Mound at the Annual Spring Festival in May and proved a credit to ye Old Mound High.
The District Declamation Contest was held at Mound High School March 15.
The contestants from Mound were: Earl Peterson. Virginia Lindquist, lames Clark, Joan Dale, and Joyce Batson.
Those to receive superior ratings from Mound were Joan Dale in Manuscript Reading of "The Ballad of the Harp Weaver" and Joyce Baison in Interpretative Reading of "The Little Joke."
Those who w re given superior ratings took part in the Regional contest at Hopkins High School, March 30. Joan Dale and Joyce Batson received very good ratings.Sitting: M. Gebo. M. Christ lumen. J Dale. J. Bat ion. W. Bowmen. K. Hohl. Miss Taylor. M. LlnqulM.

THE LATE MR. EARLY
"The Late Mr. Early” is one of the screwiest, funniest plays ever written. It was presented on our stage by the Senior Class of 1944. Don Early is a reckless young fool who doesn't know the meaning of "safety first.” He is engaged to a sweet young thing who sits at home and trembles every time he goes up in his plane. He has crashed twice, and when he comes down for the third time with his fiance's girl friend, the rest decide to teach them a lesson. They were both unconscious when the plane crashed, so the rest made Don and Doris believe they really were dead. It was a hilarious comedy. Everything turns out for the best in the end.
The cast was as follows:
James Clarke ...........
___Mary Jo Linquist
Muriel Christiansen __Theron Hokanson
_____Dan And resen
... William Layman
The play was given on May 5, 1944. It was directed and managed by Miss Doris Taylor."FOOTLOOSE"

Standing: J. Peterson. M. Hamilton. E. Johnson. R. Kullbcrg. R. Swanson. Mrs. Edlund. G. Dodds. D. Hanft.
Curtain coming up! Fourteen breathless amateurs from the junior class, under the direction of Mrs. Edlund, crossed their fingers as the play went on.
Richard Early, (James Clark) who tries very hard not to be taken away by his wife, Emily Early, (Joan Schaumburg) are both persuaded to take a vacation by their four children. In their absence, Hope, (Elaine Johnson) their oldest daughter, tries to supervise the household and family.
Mary (Rosanne Geldert), who is a senior in high school becomes quite fond of Jack Milford (Jerry Dodds), who is quite wordly, being a sophomore in college! But Randy Cunningham (Richard Swanson) who likes Mary, still remains true to her, and Mary eventually finds that Randy is best. Miriam Walker (Donna Hanft) is a cousin of Jack and a good friend of Mary.
Dick (Earl Peterson), who is about to graduate from college and become a doctor, falls in love with Jenny Malloy (Kamilla Dean), a young girl from Art School, and the two get married.
To top all of this, young Bob Early (Walter Peterson) persuades Hope to let him buy a car with his boy friend, "Buzz" Daily (James Peterson). Indignant Mrs. Forester (Marguerite Hamilton), a wealthy woman, appears on the scene, after Bob and "Buzz" have carelessly run into her Lincoln. But Sanford Welles, (Ronald Kullberg) a young attorney who has fallen in love with Hope, helps the boys out of the jam.
The Early's maid, Delphie (Jean Anderson) becomes sick, and the whole responsibility falls on Hope's shoulders.
Mr. and Mrs. Early arrive home just in time to see everything happily ironed out."THE ' MOHIA N' MEMORY BOOK"

"At last it's done!" Our editor heaved a deep sigh of relief as she proudly closed the covers of this Mohian 1944.
The 1943-44 Mohian staff has again been a source of memories to those who make up M. C. H. S. with its halls of knowledge.
The staff composed of members from all four classes, worked diligently collecting and preparing the material for this year's Mohian. In addition to the preparation, there was the matter of finances confronting the staff; but through subscriptions and candy sales, that little matter was taken care of.
An improvement in this year's annual is the following of a definite theme with plate divisions. We have tried to streamline it more by stressing better picture arrangement.
We of the annual staff present to you with pride this, our annual.

"ON THE GRIDIRON"
The Mound football season turned out successfully with four wins and two losses throughout the conference season to put us in third place. U. High and Hopkins nosed the Mohawks out of a possible championship and tied for first place. Under the guidance of Coach Loomer the boys used a single wing shifted from the "T" formation. The fake kick was used successfully against all opposing teams except Hopkins.
Two of our players. John Skinner and Dick Alhberg. made the All-Conference team, and Charles Jackson and Bill Hankee made the second All-Conference team. Dick Alhberg was the captain of the team and proved very efficient as a leader. Gerald Dodds and Richard Johnson are to be Co-Captains of the '44 team.
The games with U. High and Hopkins proved to be the thrillers of the season. In each case Mound was within good scoring distance when the score would have won the game for us. It was at U. High that the fake kick was used wiih such good results. The U. High boys were expecting the play, but nevertheless, Skinner went down the field to rake up a touchdown for the Mohawks. At Hopkins, we were very close to the goal line, but Hopkins' defense was too strong to penetrate..
All in all the season was played well an 1 afforded more thrilling moments for Mound than for many years before. The boys played brilliantly and displayed excellent teamwork.
Of course there was that game at Stillwater, but oh, those steaks!HIGH FLYING MOHAWKS

Mound’s Mohawks finished their basketball season in fourth place in the Lake Conference standings for the 1943-44 season. The team had hard luck all through the season -every game they lost, but one. they lost by four points or less. Charles Jackson and John Skinner, two of the starting five, left for the army when the season was still young. The toughest defeat of the season came when U. High played Mound at Mound. Mound led the whole game, but just as the gun went off ending the game, with the score 37-36 in Mound's favor, a U. High player was fouled. He was given two free throws, and made them both, giving U. High the victory.
In the subdistrict tournament Mound played Wayzata and had little trouble winning. This placed Mound in the district tournament. Mound had to play Chaska, the Valley Conference champs, and came through with their first close win of the season 28-26. In the semifinals Mound played Hopkins and lost only after giving Hopkins a tough fight. Watertown won the consolation game from Mound, thus placing Mound in fourth place in the district.
John Friden was chosen captain for the season. Paul Lindholm, who was high scorer for the conference, was chosen all conference and all district.
The final standings and scores for the season are as follows:

GRUNT AND GROANERS
The 1943-44 wrestling squad was a high caliber group under the watchful eye of Coach Wilcox. Led by their captain, Dick Alhberg, they won seven dual matches and lost one at the hands of Robbinsdale.
The District meet was held at Mound on February 24; and after a close race. Robbinsdale took the District 18 Championship, scoring 36 points to Mound's 31, while Wayzata placed third, St. Louis Park fourth, and U. High fifth. Mound, however, produced five individual champs in the persons of: John Condon. 120 lbs.; Fritz Soule, 127 lbs.; Gerald Geyen, 145 lbs.; Neil Palmer, 154 lbs.; and Dick Alhberg, heavyweight.
The next week these same squads met at Robbinsdale in the Regional meet. Here the Mohawks took revenge for the defeat in the District meet and beat the Robbins 44-42. Robbinsdale qualified eight men for the State meet however, and Mound had seven. The Mohawks had four champs there, they being: Condon, 120 lb3.; Soule. 127 lbs.; Geyen, 145 lbs.; and Alhberg. heavyweight.

Prospects for the baseball season of 1944 were mediocre with the return of only two letter-men, these being Kenneth Ess and Myron Segner.
Pitching duties were handled by Buster Layman, a reserve of last year’s squad. The squad lost Keith Drysdale, a pitcher, to the Armed Forces.
The track season looked very glum at the start with the losing of John Skinner and Kenneth Chapman to the Armed Forces.
Bill Hankee, Paul Lindholm, and Gerald Dodds are the only returning trackmen. Lindholm and Hankee will handle the weights with Dodds figuring in the dashes.
