Text from Pages 1 - 60 of the 1946 volume:

 Published By THE MOHIAN STAFFTo Mr. Irving Kepke, who has served the students of this school for twenty-three years, the Mohian staff wishes to dedicate this book. He has served the students, some directly and others indirectly, both silently and faithfully. When a class wished stage props, salefe stands, or any such articles, he lent a hand to see that they were constructed. It is unfortunate that every student could not have had his influence. But to anyone connected with the industrial arts department he will never be forgotten. We wish to congratulate you on your fine record and loyalty to your school and its students. You are worthy of unlimited praise. Pag® 2Medallions were first known to the ancient Romans who used them on coins to commemorate famous Roman leaders. The form that they used was a coin usually made of gold or silver, sometimes bronze. They were the forerunner of the bronze plaques given today for meritorious work or achievement. The drawings throughout this book are to represent medallions. Though they are only printers ink and paper, they represent and commemorate the work and activities described within. That is the sole purpose of this book.

Standing: Mr. Krantz. advisor: W. Llndholm. treasurer; Miss Berg-lund. advisor. At the opening of the school year, the class of '46 looked forward to a long and successful senior year. In time it proved to be far too short but it was nevertheless successful. And we soon realized that graduation would mark our final curtain in our 'alma mater.' The first notable event at the year's beginning was the election of class officers. Bob Johnson led the presidential race while Shirley Nagel became our competent vice-president. Barbara Lindquist became our pen-pushing secretary. Wallace Lindholm was the treasurer. Soon following was the noteworthy faculty-senior banquet. The seniors shall remember it for being a great success because of its mystifying entertainment and first postwar rubber balloons. Football season was also getting under way and soon Homecoming was upon us. A vast bonfire and a humorous program were the events that preceded the game. A parade and pep fest at which the queen, Lois Fredin. was crowned took place before the game. Park proved to be the victor, but only after a long hard battle. This in no way dulled the spirits and merriment at the Homecoming dance that evening. ''Just one point—one measly point! So near and yet so far! were just some of the feelings expressed by the disappointed sen- Pa«jo 18 iors. This was after the lo ing battle againr’Deephavt i for the District 18 Ba ketballChampionship. ''All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,'' or so the saying goes. The senior Jacks and Jills took heed and so they had parties in between long weeks of study. These took many forms, the first one being a weiner roast at Hogsback. This was followed by numerous roller skating parties and the hard times party. Many who attended this were arrayed in costumes ranging from nightshirts to overalls and plaid shirts. Near the end of the school year came the traditional Senior Skip Day. Only eight of the class of '46 had to don khaki or navy blue before their graduation. These were Russ Whittaker, Dayrl Blatzheim, Gerald Geyan, Stan Simonson, Frances Koechler, Jerome I-eow, Bob Werner, Bob Peterson and Lyle Gast. The Junior Class entertained the Seniors at the Curtis Hotel on April 27 for the annual Junior-Senior Prom. Baccalaureate service was held on May 26. On May 29, the seniors found the year had been all too short as they bade farewell to high school days and became part of the alumni. The senior class chose the red rose as its flower, green and gold as its colors, and "Not finished, just begun," as its motto.Row 1: E. Beecher. D. Koecheler, M King. R. DcCamp. D. Drysdalc. A.

Bruce Bartel was elected president; Chuck Harriman, vice-president; Estella Whittaker, secretary; and Yvonne Arnold, treasurer. In November, the juniors’ attention was turned to production of the class play. "Girl Shy.” It was originally scheduled for November 30th, but because of illness of members of the cast, it was postponed until December 8. The committee for selection of the class rings consisted of the class officers. This was the first year that a special crest was chosen which will establish a tradition throughout the coming years. The biggest event of the year, of course, was the prom held at the Curtis Hotel in Minneapolis. Hard-working committees and the co-operation of the class advisors, Miss Frank and Mr. Skow, helped to make this a success. Page 19 lomotes Bow |: R Danielson. D Anderson. M CttwIW.

Being their first year in Junior High, the first day they looked rather bewildered and uneasy; however it didn't take the students more than a day or two for self-adjustment. They, like all other class groups, made their first class event the election of officers. They voted that the presidential job was to be held by Lois Schaible with Priscilla Higus as vice-president. The others were Quno Wicks, secretary, and Richard Overby, treasurer. Mr. Berge and Mrs. Johnson were their advisors.

Mr. Skow taps the stand and says "Fus-sel's. page one." The last minute practices and warm ups quiet down and scon the band starts another day's practice to the melodic strains of "Fussers." One of Mr. Skow’s innovations which has improved the band is having sectional rehearsals weekly. Out of these so called sectionals came a saxophone, a flute, and two clarinet quartets. The band performed for the home football games, home basketball games, Junior and Senior class plays. Dramatic Club productions. Memorial Day services, and Commencement exercises. They also put on their own Spring concert in conjunction with the chorus. The band traveled to Wayzata to perform at a football game, to the field house to play at the District Meets, and to Hcpkins for the Music Festival. The band department has been in charge of ice cream sales in the lunchroom. The profits of these sales pay for additional uniforms and new trousers which are beige with a maroon stripe instead of the white trousers worn previously. Also, the band department conducted a magazine subscription sale for the purpose of raising money for instruments. The department was divided into two teams: the Navy, headed by John Overby, vs. the Marines. who claimed Barbara Lindquist as a leader. The Navy topped the Marines by a narrow margin. The band has been Invited to play at both P(vp 28 the regional and state conventions of the American Legion in June and August respectively. The band officers for the year were: John Overby, president, Barbara Lindquist, vice-president, Dennis Brettingen, secretary-treasurer. and Shirley Peterson as our music librarian. In a boasting manner, the band now can claim sixty members. The younger equivalent of the senior band is the second band. This up and coming group has participated in two Junior High basketball games. They also made their contribution to the Spring Concert. This group has now a claim to fifty members. Every Tuesday the hooting and screeching of the band gives way to the scraping and scratching of the orchestra. In fact this group began as a string quartet consisting of three violins and a cello. From this beginning it grew into a string section and finally this group was supplemented by brass, woodwinds and percussion borrowed from the band. Recently the instrumental department has Mr. Skow lists numbers to be rehearsed. added new instruments to its organization. These include: a baritone, a piccolo, a clarinet. a trombone, and a glockenspiel.

The Dramatic Club was organized in the fall of the year by Miss Eva Lou Russell, "Cherub” to most of the club members. The first meeting was dedicated to the election of officers for the year with Vivian Peterson being elected president, Mary King, vice-president. and Janet Eden as publicity reporter. Meetings were held every second and fourth Wednesday in ''Cherub's” class room. At meetings the club discussed such matters as finance, future productions, and the art of applying stage make-up. The club kept posted on the current stage productions being presented in Minneapolis. On several occasions members of the club traveled to town to see the productions and go back stage for first-hand information on stage make-up. In order to bring funds into the club treasury, the club presented a one-act, old-fashioned melodrama entitled "He Ain't Done Right By Nell." under the direction of Miss Russell. The production was presented February 21 for the students and February 25 for the P. T. A. As pictured the cast of "He Ain't Done Right By Nell” is left to right: G. Claybaugh, J. Sorensen, J.

It was presented on December 8. 1945, under the direction of Miss Eva Lou Russell; assisted by Miss Evelyn Reineke. 'Girl Shy" centered around shy Tom Ars-dale and his lady-killer roommate, Oke Stimson, in their college dormitory on the verge of their graduation. Upon hearing that his father is bringing a girl from back home to graduation exercises, Tom decides to pretend he already has a fiancee because his father is not going to pick out his wife. Babs Sanford, who has been most eager to meet Tom, meanwhile has taken over the maid's position by getting the maid. Birdie La Verne, a screen test. Thus Babs has a chance to work on Tom and the impression she makes on Tom when he first sees her is about as unnoticeable as two rockets cracking in midair. Everything is running smoothly for Tom and Babs, thanks to the help of Tom's Aunt Caroline, who likes Babs and disapproves of Mr. Arsdale s choice of a girl for Tom, when the maid returns to her job, after failing in her screen test, to complicate matters. Peaches Carter, Oke's girl of the moment, straightens things out with Babs and Tom, Birdie's boyfriend appears on the scene, Sylvia, the girl from back home, finds a big thrill in Alfred, the college poet. Aunt Caroline develops an interest in the dean of the college, Dean Marlowe, and Mr. Arsdale decides that Babs isn't so bad after all and—yes, you've guessed it they all lived happily ever after. Comedy throughout the play was furnished by the colored wash-lady, Asma. ?ac?o ?2Did you hear the explosion on April 4? It wasn’t dynamite, but the applause at the closing curtain of "No Way Out," the final production of the class of 1946. This three act play by Owen Davis is a mystery drama of suspense and intrigue and was directed by Miss Eva Lou Russell. The play centers around Dr. Niles Hilliard and the mysterious illness of his step-daughter, Barbara Trent. The doctor's wife married her first husband for his money and social position with which she is now supporting Dr. Hilliard in his work. The plot thickens with two shady characters, Hesther Darrow, the doctor's nurse, and Jim Slade, an old friend from Water Street on the other end of town. Dr. Enid Karley, sister to Barbara's fiance, discovers a would-be murderer and foils the plot, thus ending the play happily.

Many students showed interest in this activity and selected declamations of their choice. These students began studying and learning their declamations at once. The Mound declamation contest was held March 22. with the following results: Robert Johnson and Betty Nell O'Donnell tied in the oratory division, Jan Eden rated first in the dramatic interpretation division, and Don Price rated first in the humorous interpretation division. These winners participated in the district contest at Hopkins, March 27. Betty Nell O'Donnell received a superior rating for her oration, "High Noon.” This qualified her to participate in the regional contest held at Litchfield. April 5, where she again received a superior-rating, thus qualifying for the state. Betty Nell’s oration, "High Noon,” is a philosophical essay, which symbolizes high noon, the peak of the day, to the high ideals or objectives that we have in our lives. Jan Eden's oration. "The Yellow Wall Paper” is a psychological performance. The wall paper, which is a dirty yellow, of a room in which a woman is suffering from a temporary nervous depression plays its part in increasing this woman's illness. She sees women which are kept prisoners of this wall paper. This thought works in her mind until it finally drives her insane. ' The Blue-eyed Sheik" was a humorous oration by Don Price. The blue-eyed sheik was a teen age boy who was getting ready for his first date. While shaving, washing, etc. in preparation for his date, this boy was being teasted by his sister. But with his mom to the rescue, our blue-eyed sheik went happily on his way to meet his date. Pa jo 34Organized in 1942 by Coach Ed Behmler, there are honorary and active members. Active members are boys who have received a letter award for athletic accomplishments at Mound high school. Honorary members are those who have won a letter and have been graduated. Originating Senior-Faculty games, they have also promoted dances, sold Mohawk "T" shirts, and given shields to record holders in track. A steak dinner at the end of the year is another feature sponsored by the club. Annually inter-class tournaments under “M" Club leadership are held. Proceeds help pay for injuries received in athletic contests that are not covered by insurance. To conduct themselves accordingly to State Athletic standards, read and uphold ”M" Club constitution, and pay dues regularly are the responsibilities of good "M” Club members. Although the organization was really begun some time before 1942, Mr. Behmler and the letter winners of that year revised it and termed a new constitution. Insignias were given before the war but couldn't be secured during the war years. Officers are elected annually by vote of members from the preceding year. Officers for 1945-46 were Frank Groschen, president; Don Timpe, vice-president; Bill Hagg, secretary; and Oscar Haddorff, treasurer. Meetings are not held regularly only when called by President Groschen or vote of any three members. There are thirty-three members in all; seventeen are seniors, fourteen are juniors and two are sophomores. Captains are Bernie Plank and Bemie Linquist, football; and Bemie Plank, basketball. Track and baseball squads had not elected a captain when the Mohian went to press. Row I: D. Price. J. Overby. K. BJork. D. Dodds. F Groschen. president. J. Russ. V Andersen. N.

Get them while they’re hot!" might well be called the slogan of the Mo-hian staff for they have become expert chefs in that line. The staff has conducted concessions at all major sporting events to raise funds to help produce the book. And that is only one example of the versatile talents displayed by members of the staff. Much work is spent editing copy. The have also proved themselves adept at constructing and decorating parade floats; in fact they won first prize in the Homecoming contest. Their job calls for a variety of work including salesmanship, bookkeeping, and actual editorial work. Miss Mary Emerson, the faculty advisor, has proved to be a regular worker and deserves much of the credit for success. Miss Emerson has been advisor of the Mohian for the past two years. The Mohian is a member of the National Scholastic Press Association which makes it subject to critical review. This has proved to be an added incentive to better the yearbook. The staff effected a price raise per book this year to help meet the cost of the hard case cover.

Natcherlyl The Broadcaster staff has again made the dead line and come through on time. All through the day you will find all teachers sweetly saying, "Put those papers away cr I'll confiscate them!" For a few moments the papers disappear but soon they are out again for who can resist the temptation to finish reading the gossip column or the sports page?

Under the capable leadership of president Jean Nelson the cheering section of this year has responded more enthusiastically than it ever has before. Attendance to the games has increased, for the "Pep Club" provided school buses to take members to other schools. Our new school song was written by Mr. Skow, new yells were added, and enthusiasm was at its peak. The boys seemed to sense that the whole school was behind them and played very well. The "Pep Club" has also created numerous skits to enliven the pep fests. Coach Haddorff has this to say about the Pep Club: "The Pep Club has been loyal to the team, and the team really appreciates their loyalty. Anything to be said about the Pep Club is all in praise, speaking for myself and the team." Page 38Row I: R. Johnson, N. Hlgus. W. Jackson. B. Hagg. J- Russ and "Ollle' . G. Hokanson. G. Lewis. V.

Although it was not a winning season, it was a season of many thrills. The season was started with a loss to Rob-binsdale by the score of 26-14 in the Robbins favor. Aaron Hastings and Don Scherven tallied for Mound with Frank Groschen kicking both conversions. The following week Mound played host to Excelsior and defeated the visitor. 31-13. Hi-lite of the game was Bemie Plank's seventy-yard run to pay dirt on the third play of the game. The second trip for Mound was consider- ably more successful than the first away game as the Mohawks defeated a large U-High team 31-6. The following week was the Homecoming tussle with St. Louis Park. The game proved to be one of the most exciting played on the Mound gridiron with Park finally victorious. 14-12. Mound started the scoring in the first period by going fifty yards on a tricky forward lateral. John Hanson of Park returned the following kickoff to put Park in the lead 7-6. Mound came back to score a few minutes later to lead at the half score, 12-7. Park fought hard to score in the third quarter to win the game. 14-12, and break thehearts of the Mound players and coaches, as well as the rooters. One week later Mound traveled to Way-zata to play them for their Homecoming. They returned with an undecided score, a 7-7 tie. The final game of the Mohawk football season was an embarrassing loss to the Hopkins eleven. The resulting score being 35-6. After the season was completed, the Lake Conference coaches chose an all conference learn. Bernie Linquist was honored with an all conference guard position. Bernie Plank and Duane Dodds were placed on the second team. Members of the entire football squad and other athletic activities were honored by a banquet presented by the local Civic Club. The Lake Conference final standings are as follows: Wins Losses Ties Hopkins ... 5 0 1 St. Louis Park 5 0 1 Robbinsdale 4 2 0 Mound 2 3 1 Wayzata 2 3 1 U.

Next on the list was Excelsior who fell to Mound 32-27. Bemie Plank and Oscar Had-dorff tallied 9 points for the winners. Mound kept on rolling by trampling Way-zata 38-18. Mound was never in trouble leading 12-1 at the first quarter. Hopkins handed Mound's Mohawks their first setback, defeating them by the score of 35-26. Beautiful rebounding by Frank Major and nice shooting by Bemie Plank were highlights for Mound. Getting back on the win wagon. Mound dumped Robbinsdale 29-27. Wally Lind-holm's eight points kept Mound rolling throughout the game while Frank Major and Duane Dodds scored winning free throws. In a tight defensive game U. High bowed to Coach HaddorfFs Mohawks 28-16. All around team play was the best feature of the Mound five. After leading most of the game Mound lost a 38-36 thriller to St. Louis Park. Hotshot of the Oriole club, John Hansen made the winning basket. Lindholm and Plank were outstanding for Mound. Opening the second round of conference play, Mound again topped Excelsior, this time 44-32. Midget guard, Duane Dodds, was high man with twelve points. Trailing all the way Wayzata was never able to make a game of it as Mound crushed them 61-23. Bemie Plank scored 24 points for Mound. With a four-point splurge in the last nine seconds, Hopkins upset Mound 46-44. Robbinsdale gave Mound a scare, but Plank and Haddorff started hitting in the last quarter to give the Mohawks a 44-34 victory. Lindholm's twelve points were tops in scoring. U. High again felt the conqueror's heel as Page 42Joiitnament v' Mound rode rough-shod over the Little Gophers 50-31. Bernie Plank made 16 points for scoring honors. In the most exciting Lake Conference game of the year. Park nipped the Mohawks, on a last minute basket by Don McKay, to the tune of 49-47. Mound held the advantage all the way leading at one time 29-17. Scoring honors went to Wally Lindholm with 16 points. This completed regular season play which found Mound third in Lake Conference standings with eight wins and four losses. Sub-District Tourney was held here with Mound drawing Excelsior. For the third straight time Coach Haddorffs Mohawks downed Excelsior. A tight defense by Mound gave them a hard earned 26-21 victory. Nine points by Bernie Plank were high for the evening. For first round play in District 18 at Rob-binsdale. Mound drubbed Waconia 75-29. Wally Lindholm with 17, Bernie Plank with 15. and Duane Dodds with 12 points were high scorers. Sweetest victory of the year was 26-24 revenge victory over Park in the semi-finals at Minnesota's Field House. Again Mound's defense turned the tide as they were never threatened after leading 16-15 at the half. High point men were Gummy Lindholm and Oscar Haddorff. Selection of an All-District team was named by the coaches of non-participating teams. Frank Major, tall rebounding guard, made the team from Mound. Honors went also to Wally Lindholm. who was chosen on the Lake Ail-Conference team, and voted most valuable by his teammates. All conference, and captain of the 1945-46 Mound Mohawks were honors bestowed on Bernie Plank. Hoping to cop its first District 18 title in history, Mound failed by only one point losing to Deephaven 41-40. Loss of the championship game lies in the fact Mound never started to click until it was too late. Trailing 25-16 at the half, the Mohawks made one of the most sensational comebacks of their career. However Howie Roberts Co. were too far ahead and Mound couldn't close the gap. Bernie Plank played his usual high scoring game.

Mound’s lone victory was over Edina but to gain that victory they suffered defeats to Wayzata twice, Excelsior, Edina, and Delano. Mr. Berge was the coach. The Junior High football squad, under the coaching of Mr. Harry Bockhaus, played two major games. Because the junior athletics weren't recognized in all schools, their opponents were confined to Wayzata. The team suffered two defeats but has gained in experience. Page 44Ron I: E. Waters. J.

B Jones 'Huba. hubal" was a comment that was overheard a great many times during the year and especially since the girls had their gym classes on the baseball diamond, football field, or somewhere in the near vicinity. Baseball, archery, golf, and tennis put a glorious end to a full and eventful year. Miss Raer left Mound the early part of November. Miss Margaret Berven came here from Michigan to take over. In the next six weeks it is believed the girls improved in their volleyball form—form that is—. They topped this with a good deal of basketball, climaxed by a game between the juniors and seniors as pictured above on March 22. It was a hard fought game with the seniors ahead at the half 16 to 15. The game ended with the seniors winning 30 to 25. The high scorer was Vivian Peterson, and some other stars were Esther Waters, Dorothy Fries, Shirley Nagel, Jan Eden and Mary King. Pago 45a A eaten How 1: K. Dietrich. R. Inconn. J Goodmnn. J Wear.

Coach Ed Behmler, returning to Mound from the Navy, thought the main worry for the season would be hitting. However, he believed that the pitching would be strong. Don Timpe, with his trusty right arm, and Wally Lindholm, ace left hander, were the pitchers for the season. Doug Bryce was behind the plate. Lindholm, when not pitching, was doing first base chores for the Mohawks. Glenn Lewis, Oscar Haddorff, and Don Scherven rounded out the infield for the Mohawks. Power hitter, Aaron Hastings, played in the outfield along with Jack Russ, Daryl Messer, Jim Bryce, and Bemie Linquist. For the first time in the history of Lake Conference all seven teams of Hopkins. Park. U. High. Excelsior, Mound. Wayzata, and Rob-binsdale had baseball teams. Mound played a seven game schedule opening the season against Wayzata at Wayzata on April 16. The Behmler boys finished the schedule playing on May 21 against U. High at Minneapolis. The Mound nine were out to improve their record of four wins and three losses for the 1945 season. The schedule for the season was as fol- lows: Date—Team Location April 26—Wayzata ____________ there April 30—Robbinsdale ------------here May 7—Excelsior_________________there May 10—Park______________________here May 14—Hopkins___________________here May 21—U.

This year's squad was coached by Mr. Harold Rasmussen. Jim Bryce was elected captain. The position of manager of the golf team was filled by Paul Benson. Pago 48A- VC C focui eajon tOJ 7 cct The Mound Mohawks opened the 1946 Track season with a small group. However, Coach Oscar Haddorff's squad grew to about thirty-live in mid-season. The club was built around five returning lettermen. The letter winners were Bemie Plank, in the high jump, broad jump, and hurdles; Duane Dodds in the broad jump and pole vault; Don Scherven, in the half mile run; Dick Finley, in the shot put and discus; Walt Bittner, in the shot put and discus. Other prospects who looked good in early season practice were George Hokanson, dashman; Charles Hardman, middle distance runner; Bill Hagg, half miler; Lenny Koecheler, dashman; and Glenn Lewis, miler. Mound had a successful season last year placing second in the Mound Relays, third in the District Meet, and third In the Region. The Mohawks placed three men in the State Meet in Minneapolis last year. Bemie Plank in the high jump, broad jump, and hurdles, Duane Dodds in the pole vault, and Dick Finley in the shot put. Mound opened the Track season on April 5 at the Metropolitan Meet, and finished at the State Meet in Minneapolis on June 2. All the students were saddened by the news of Ollie's death. Ollie had just finished his last day of school and was chasing the fire engine. When the fire engine swung around the corner, Ollie wasn’t quick enough to avert being run over. Ollie. the mongrel belonging to "Bubs" Dodds, has attended classes off and on with his master since seventh grade. Lunch hour would find Ollie in the lunchroom eating bits of sandwiches or cake from anyone who would offer it. In the spring or fall he would join the band in marching practice, barking in perfect cadence with the bass drum. He also rarely missed a football or basketball practice and was the official mascot of both teams. He attended Junior class play rehearsals in which his master participated.
