MOUND CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Mound, Minnesota(Contents
LEADERSHIP—To have an •outstanding athletic group requires teamwork yet also develops individual initiative, as can be witnessed by the fact that many of our athletes also held offices in other school organizations throughout the year.
SCHOLARSHIP—Brains plus muscle and brawn are requirements for winning in any competitive event. Proof of this is the fact that a large percentage of our first team members retained positions on the honor roll during the year.
SPORTSMANSHIP—Athletics develops the ability to try as best you can and accept the results accordingly. To be a good winner is not difficult but to be a good loser is a sought-after character trait.
FRIENDSHIP — Co-operation with the aim of victory leads to a true, lasting friendship, not only among the team itself but also among the entire student body.
This year's football season has been the most successful in our school’s history since 1929. With football brought to our attention in this manner, we have thought it worthwhile to consider how this sport, along with ail other high school athletics, fits the student for his role in school and life after graduation. There has been a great deal written and said about the good qualities that football develops, and in this annual we shall attempt to show what we conceive to be football's part in student life.
Throughout our yearbook you will find the constellation Hercules, which we have chosen to represent athletic power. Just as a constellation is an association of stars, so is a successful athletic group an organization of individual star players.
Page TwoCoach Oscar A. Haddorff
We, the graduating class and Mohian staff of 1947, dedicate this, our treasured 'Book of Memories’, to Coach Oscar A. Haddorff, better known to most as just "Coach”, who truly symbolizes the four character traits brought out in this yearbook.
A great leader himself, Mr. Haddorff developed leadership, character, and scholarship in the boys whom he coached. An all-round sportsman as well as a good sport—that is also the coach. And last, but far from least, a true and lasting friend. A familiar figure to all, Coach Haddorff always has had a friendly smile and cheery greeting for everyone.
So to you, "Coach”, we present this, our annual, as a lasting memorial from us who appreciate your coaching talents and your all-round likeable personality.

m in id tra tion
MR. L.L. KRANTZ
We, the senior class of 1947, wish to extend our most sincere thanks to our superintendent, class advisor, and friend, Mr. Krantz. Only through his tireless effort and guidance was our last year of high school made such a successful and never-to-be-forgotten one. He also promoted the extensive athletic program sponsored at Mound.
Mr. Krantz received a three-year diploma from Central Wisconsin State Teacher's College, his B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Minnesota.
MR. J. M. JULSRUD
A faithful friend, an enthusiastic helper, and under standing person, and an able advisor—that is our principal, Mr. Julsrud. Among his many tasks were the advising of each individual senior about his future work and the directing of the Student Council in its year’s activities.
Mr. Julsrud received his B.A. degree at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, and took graduate work at the University of Minnesota.
MR. DALE NELSON
The past year was a very progressive one for the junior high under the capable supervision of Mr. Dale Nelson, principal. And through his efforts, the American Junior Red Cross carried out its most active year in our school’s history.
Mr. Nelson received a two-year certificate from St. Cloud State Teacher’s College and took graduate work and received his B.A. degree from the University of Minnesota.

Harmless looking stuff, eh? Don't let that fool you. The potent ingredients arc iron sulfide and sulfuric acid. Know what’s cooking? That beloved (by chemist) detested (by others) hydrogen sulfide gas. Odor! Yeh, man—Rotten egg!
Watching gleefully as the gas permeates the lab are Bob Jones, Marymar Warrington, Diane McDonald and Bob Stair (foreground). In the background are Miss Emerson, Gene Pardee, Bob O’Donnell, Estella Whittaker, Bruce Bartel, and Joyce May.
"Face this way and do fifteen Burpecs.’’ So ends the calisthenics for another senior girl’s gym class. Now comes the intra-class basketball games. The senior girls could always be found rushing eagerly into the locker room just as the bell was ringing—they knew the consequences if they were late. Demerits surely mount up quickly!
In this picture you see the class strenuously going through one of the exercises. Miss Berven, the instructor, is not pictured.

The guiding hand that directs the students in the cooking of those tempting tidbits and in the sewing of such fashionable clothes is that of Mrs. Catherine Nelson, head of the Home Economics Department.
Mrs. Nelson had charge of the table decorations for the Senior-Faculty Banquet in January, and was also affiliated with procuring the student help for the lunchroom.

The junior high students have a vivid course in geography, as Mrs. Johnson makes intensive use of the movie projector as well as map study and reference material.
Through the use of films, the students get a more comprehensive idea as to the habits, costumes, industries, and recreation of foreign peoples.
Many of the films arc presented as travelogues, often with native background music, and a few of the films are in technicolor.
Pictured looking at a map of South America are Josephine Nickisch, Jeanette Drcssel, and Mrs. Marie Johnson.
The past year proved the best in school history for Mound’s Junior High School. Numerous individual class activities, along with the organizing of a Junior High Student Council and Pep Club plus a keener and greater interest in Junior High School sports, were the factors comprising their 'school year.
For the freshmen, the past year had the widest field of elective subjects ever offered. General courses in language and business were offered, as well as Home Economics for the girls and Shop for the boys. With a permit from the director, band could also be taken as a credit subject.

Miss Hehn, a new director to the Mound vocal department, directed the group and several soloists in a very fine performance for the Christmas Nativity. In the spring the group took part in the district festival. Miss Hehn is shown below directing the chorus in a daily rehearsal.
A more extensive visual education program was put into effect in our school during the past year. More numerous and instructive classroom films were offered for our education and entertainment. Several full length features were also shown to the entire student body. Mr. Harold Rasmussen had charge of the program. It was his job to choose the weekly films and keep all the equipment in repair. He is shown below with several of his student helpers—Clayton Miller, Robert Lee, Ward Whalen, and Bob Kadeshka.
Poge TenENLIVEN CLASSES
Training for future positions on the school paper begins early in Mound, as can be witnessed by the fact that many junior high students took an interest in writing for "their” page in the tri-weekly publication.
In charge of these eager journalists was Miss Helen Dcgen, English and General Language instructor. Miss Degen was also very active in Junior Red Cross work throughout the year. She is shown here with Virginia Seguine, Trudy Martin, Ruth Inman, Joan Legus, Joan Haddorff, and Carolyn Gooder.
First aid is taught in the ninth and twelfth grade health classes. Not only is this a very useful subject in that it can be used all through one’s life but it is an interesting subject, particularly since the war placed so much emphasis on preparedness and civilian defense.

BORKEN CUTLER LAW
Speech Clinician Librarian Nurse
Under the direction of Miss Margaret Cutler, the library has been conveniently arranged to fit the student’s needs. Assisting her throughout the day were Ann Olson, Ruth Anne Kepke, Phyllis Lockhart, Mary-mar Iverson, Terry Tambornino, Marvel Boehner, Margie Larson, Stella Bowman, Delores Matthews, and Elray Payne. Delores Matthews assisted in the senior high library the first half of the year. Stella Bowman is finishing the year. This staff does such things as checking out books and assisting the students in finding books.
One of the most important departments of any school is the library. There one finds books for English reports or mysteries to occupy one’s free time. The large selection of literature in our library contains 520 volumes of fiction, 1200 volumes of non-fiction, 180 volumes of reference material. The library also subscribes to some 46 magazines. These figures are for the senior high library only. The students also have access to the public library.
Seated—Marvel Boehner, Delores Matthews, Catherine King, Terry Tambornino. Ruth Anne Kepke.
Standing-—Miss Cutler, Ann Olson, Margie Larson.
Sports can influence scholarship by inuring the student to hard work. To excel in football or basketball it is necessary to practice long and hard. To rate "A’s” in English or mathematics it is also necessary to work. It is a testimonial to this fact that a large proportion of the best athletes rank high in their classes.•Seniors

The class of ’47 chose for its class motto a poem rather than a traditional saying. The poem is as follows:
I never can hide myself from me.
I sec what others may never see.
I know what others may never know, and so,
Throughout my life I want to be Respected by myself and conscience free.
The entire senior class voted for the class motto, colors, and flower. This poem, which stresses the aims of the senior of ”47, was chosen by a large majority. Green and white are the colors, and Lilies of the Valley are the flowers which also represent the class of '47.
The motto, because of the majority of votes for it, represents the high ideals which arc present in this year’s graduating class. Our school can be proud of this
year’s senior, for he realizes the difficult tasks and the many important decisions which he or she, as a member of today’s world, will have to undertake.
A number of this year’s graduating class are going to further their education by going to college. If these students adapt themselves to college activities and base their actions on their class motto, success will be inevitable.
Pago Twonty-oneClass of '47
Presiding officials of the graduating class of 1947 were, left to right, George Hokanson, vice-president; Kathleen FitzPatrick, iecretary; Bruce Bartel, president, and James Harrison, treasurer.
To the teachers this has been just another year and just another class, but to us it seemed very important. We remember marching through our Freshman year feeling quite experienced as we watched newcomers take their places, and our feeling of loss as we entered senior high and rubbed shoulders with haughty upperclassmen.
Boy! that was a rugged year—class parties sandwiched in between biology assignments and attempt to learn what English themes were about.
Our Junior year—what a year! Remember the struggles we had putting on a play which we all thought would never be produced because of the flu epidemic, raising funds to finance the great event of the year, and then teaching the fellows in gym class how to dance so that we could attend the prom?
Another year rolled around and we listened once again to Mr. Krantz tell the Seniors (heavens! that’s us) to set good examples for the rest of the school and to take advantage of our last year in high school. We took a deep breath and swung into studies and school activities. Our pride soared as we watched our classmates on the football field and basketball floor. They surely were "on the ball." And were we proud when the wrestlers brought home the state championship trophy—the first in our school’s history.
Signs of the times occurred when we received our class rings in September, sat for the "birdie” in October, ordered graduation announcements in January, and were measured for caps and gowns in February.
We had parties, too. Our first one was a hay ride in the fall of the year with a big yellow moon hanging low in the sky—hmmmmmm. In spite of a few minor bruises, the entire class survived and had fun doing I:.
Then December came and with it the yearly holiday
festivities. The seniors took an active part in them all— the Nativity program, Christmas caroling, and decorating of the tree and study hall window.
The yellow moon changed to a cold silver moon, and in January the faculty honored us with a Senior-Faculty Banquet. During the course of the evening the lights went out—what an honor.
Spring came. Everyone’s hearts turned to thoughts of— you guessed it—a roller skating party. Satisfying our every whim, Mr. President scheduled the party for us in April, shortly before we settled down to the more serious task of producing our class play.
Now it’s commencement time. We girls will have to practice so that we can balance on our new high heels as we walk down the aisle. They tell us that we are going out into the world, so, ‘World’, here comes the Class of ’47!
"Oh! Come Let U Adore Him” For the first time in the school's history, the senior high school study hall window was painted. Here we see the beautiful masterpiece of the senior girls.

The senior class selected as their dramatic production for 1947, the Pulitzer Prize winning play, "Our Town”, by Thornton Wilder.
The story is composed of a day in our town—or any town—a wedding in our town, and finally, a death in our town.
The play is unique in that the stage manager explains the lay-out of Our Town on the hare stage, and all action takes place with a minimum of properties.
Throughout the play he tells the story of two families in Our Town—those of Emily Webb and George Gibbs —and shows the humor and pathos in everyday life.
After her death, Emily chooses to relive one day of her life, which she does. Realizing how little we understand and appreciate the beauty of life itself, she returns to the peace and contentment to be found after death.
Congratulations and due credit are extended to not only the cast but also the production staff without whom the success of our last class play would not have been possible. The big task of publicity chairman was held by Bruce Bartel. Lighting and stage managing was taken care of by James Harrison, and Daryl Blatzhcim and Don Mattson, respectively.

Pogo Twonty-four-And tradition at PROM
Did Bob Parker really try to saw Joan Abemaker in half? Did he really dye Mr. Abemakcr’s coat bright yellow? Did he steal those little rabbits from the zoo? Why did he break out of jail? All these questions and many more were asked during the course of the Junior Class Play, "A Case of Springtime.” Things happened to the luckless Bob Parker from the rising of the first curtain until the end. In his magic show he had tried to saw Joan Abernaker in half, and she thought he hadn’t enough polish for her and much preferred the suave college men. Dickie, Bob’s younger brother, accidentally ripped a coat borrowed from Joan’s father while showing off his muscles to his adoring girl friend, Gwen. In their effort to hide the coat from Joan, Bob and Dickie got it mixed up with the laundry; and Louclla, the maid, dyed it bright yellow. In the ensuing scenes, things get worse and worse, and the situation between Bob and Joan becomes more strained. The P.T.A. Ladies who have been invited to the Parker house by Mrs. Parker, Bob’s mother, to straighten things out between Mr. Abernaker, the school principal, and Bob, fell into the "booby traps” planted by Dickie and Gwen to get even with Joan. Bob was unjustly accused of stealing some rabbits from the zoo and was taken to the police headquarters. He made things worse by breaking out of

jail, but everything was set right when Miss Bright, the lady from the zoo, explained that the rabbits were really chinchillas and were not stolen. Mr. Parker then gave Bob the basement to raise them in, and the curtain fell with everyone very happy, including Bob and Joan who were the happiest making plans for their future.

The first year of junior high life was fun for the 91 seventh graders, and they are looking forward to their five remaining years of high school. Their first year’s activities were led by the two faculty advisors. Miss Degen and Mr. Ohman, who proved efficient and capable of promoting several entertaining social activities.
First on the social calendar was a Valentines Day party. The class officers appointed a competent committee to arrange the festivities. High-lighting the program was a skit in which Karen Hartman and Clifford Ford took the leading roles.
In the latter part of April the seventh graders had their Horoscope party. All the students were divided into groups according to the month of their birthdays, after which their fortunes were told. This proved entertaining to all.
The officers who were chosen to preside in their first year of junior high school were as follows: Mary Tambornino, president; Douglas Eden, vice-president; Sarah Lynch, secretary; and Robert Kickhacfer, treasurer.

True sportsmanship is due to teamwork and honest and fair play. Hence, a real team is comparable to a constellation of stars rather than individual star players. Sports condition students to ideas of good sportsmanship. This influence may become very powerful and act greatly to benefit the school.Mohawks Satisfy

The football team really came through in fine manner this season, under the able leadership of coaches Ed Behmler and Oscar Haddorff. They upset preseason predictions, which had placed them third or fourth, and won all of their first six games, losing only the last one, to finish second in the conference.
This was the first year of use for the athletic lights, too. Playing night games enabled many more fans to enjoy them. Attendance was strikingly high, too, and it reached a grand climax the night of the final contest, when a crowd of 6,500 jammed their way into the stadium to witness the conclusion of the season.
The boys started with a bang when they bewildered Excelsior to the tune of 20-0. Bubs Dodds, Windy Hastings, and Glenn Lewis tallied the points, and the whole team played neat ball to shut out the Blucjays.
Next the fellows trounced U. High 30-7 in the first game to be played on the Mohawk’s new lighted gridiron. Bubs Dodds, George Hokanson, Oscar Haddorff, Jr., and Glen Lewis shared scoring honors. U. High could only score in the last minute of play.
The following contest was one of sweet revenge for the Mohawks as they plowed St. Louis Park into the turf 7-0. Oscar tossed another one of those neat passes to Glenn for the only score of the game. The field was terrifically muddy so the gang had to fight uphill, but their scrappincss subdued the Orioles.

Again Bubs made a score, and there was another Haddorff-Lewis touchdown pass with Oscar making the third tally. This win and the big victory homecoming dance afterwards wrote a happy finis to one of the finest homecoming days in Mound’s history.
Next in line was a non-conference tilt with Anoka, who came out on top by 25-12. Bud Brooks was the difference as he led Anoka to their win. Bur Oscar Haddorff was Mound’s hero in this one. He raced 78 yards for one score on a quarterback sneak. He made the second score on another sneak.
Then came the annual rock ’em, sock ’em battle with Hopkins. Bubs and Hoke led the team to a revenging 12-7 victory, which exploded the so-called Hopkins myth. It was a close game, being 7-6 most of the way, but the fellows were not to be denied this hard fought game and ground Hopkins and all their fans into the beaten column.
The last game of the season was the climax as the Mohawks were playing Robbinsdale for the championship. Hoke electrified the huge crow’d by making a 96 yard run in the first quarter. Oscar plunged over from the one-yard line for the score. Hoke snared

Oscar’s pass for the extra point. But then fate dealt us a bad blow. Oscar’s knee was injured and this hurt our offensive; besides, Robbinsdale started to click, so we absorbed a 26-7 hcartbreaker.
However, this was one of the best football seasons Mound has enjoyed. Enthusiasm was at a peak, as evidenced by the large crowds at the games. Some local citizens also took the team to a hockey game as a reward for a job well done.
Three of the Mohawks made the All-Conference Team, picked by the conference mentors, due to their hard playing all season.
Bubs Dodds, the captain and sparkplug of the team, was chosen by all the coaches as the all-conference left halfback. This was no surprise to us, for little number 58 was all over the field, always playing a nifty game.
Vern Anderson, the rugged left guard, played heads up ball all the time, constantly recovering fumbles and blocking punts. He was the defensive signal caller, too, and if you noticed the man at the bottom of the pile, it was usually Vern.
Unanimously selected for the left end spot was Glenn Lewis, the sticky fingered guy who was catching touchdown passes all year. Besides that, Lew was virtually impassable on defense, so he really earned his honor position.
Two other boys made the alternate team to give Mound five on the first 22. Oscar Haddorff, Jr. was honored at quarterback for his fine field generalship
and deadly passes that the other teams soon learned to fear. And Daryl Blatzheitn was chosen at end especially because of his terrific defensive play. Daryl returned from the Navy and really gave the team a boost.
Then on December 11, the Upper Tonka Civic Club held their annual athletic banquet at the school. Lake Conference coaches and the All-Conference players were honor guests, and none other than Bcmie

Bierman was the feature speaker. Both coaches, Behm-ler and Haddorff, spoke to the assembled sports enthusiasts, too. And a hilarious part of the evening came about when a fellow named Hoff, a glib-tongued cartoonist, drew several satirical caricatures of certain well-known, beloved personalities. Enough said.
Later the letter winners, 22 in number, met and elected co-captains for the ’47 squad. Honored were two fellows from the first team who did a lot for the season’s good showing: Oscar Haddorff, Jr., quarterback; and Dick Tourangeau, center.

Mound’s basketball team finished the i946-'47 regular schedule by winning eleven games and losing seven. The record itself is not too impressive, but most of the battles were lost by close scores.
Looking back on the season, Coach Oscar Haddorff was fairly well satisfied. "Our main objective was to develop a good team. We had some returning lettermen, but wanted to find a right combination. Near the close of the year, I think that combination was found.”
The Mohawks started with four returning lettermen— Duane Dodds, Oscar Haddorff, Charles Harriman, and Aaron Hastings. Returning from the service, Daryl Blatzheim, who was a letterman of 1945, greatly increased Coach Haddorff’s hopes in early season.
The boys progressed well, although not too rapidly. Height was the big factor Mound lacked. Stanley Allen proved the "man of the hour", as he came along quickly to take over the center position with his six foot, three inch frame.
Different variations were used, but finally the combination of Dodds, Harriman, Allen, Haddorff, Blatzheim, and Hastings proved most efficient.
Mound finished third in the conference with seven victories and five defeats. Daryl Blatzheim tallied 154 points, Oscar Haddorff 143, and Duane Dodds 135 ro pace Mound’s scoring. Rebounding and passing of Chuck Harriman, Stan Allen, and Aaron Hastings were also important cogs in the Mound basketball machine.
Mound opened its basketball tournament trail by defeating U. High, 32-20, at St. Louis Park on Monday, March 3, in the sub-district eliminations.
Playing a good defensive game, the Mohawks bottled
up the Little Gopher ace. Bob Setzer, and clinched the game in early stages, leading 16-7 at the half. Oscar Haddorff chalked up 10 points to lead the scoring for the Mohawks.
In the District 18 tournament, the Mohawks copped a semi-final berth by edging Waconia 42-39. Winning on free throws, Mound made 18 gift tosses to Waconia’s five. The Valley Conference boys made 17 baskets to Mound’s 12. Leading 26-20 at the half, the basketecri stalled out the last two minutes to protea their slim, three-point lead. Daryl Blatzheim paced the winners by tallying 11 points.
In the second round of district play. Mound lost to Hopkins, 32-33, at the University of Minnesota Field

At the close of conference competition, the regulars overwhelmingly chose Daryl Blatzhcim captain for the season. Oscar Haddorff, Jr., was honored by the boys as the most valuable player. These same two fellows were selected by the coaches of the I.akc Conference a-, neinbcrs of the honorary All-Lake Conference squad.

Mound’s i946-?47 'grunt and groaners’. captained by Dick Iacano and coached by Mr. Harry Bockhaus, really 'brought home the bacon’ in the form of Mound’s first state championship in any sport.
The wrestlers had an impressive season from beginning to end, winning 17 matches and losing one. They
Joe Goodman with opponent, Percy Lowe, from U. High.
had an average of 34 points per match in comparison with their opponents 10. Individually the boys maintained a record of 143 wins, 44 losses, and 11 tics.
Mound’s matmen began their season by defeating Wayzata, 34-13, on November 25. Their season’s opposition consisted of three matches with Wayzata, two each with Anoka, Excelsior, Litchfield, Minneapolis Marshall, Robbinsdale, U. High, and Minneapolis Vocational, and one meet with Patrick Henry High of Minneapolis. The Mohawk 'grapplers’ were victorious in all meets except one which they lost to Litchfield, 18-22, in their last match of the season. On February 14, the wrestlers whipped U. High to the tunc of 44-2, the match in which Mound piled up the greatest number of points over its opponents.
The regional meet was held at Mound on February 22. Mound rolled over the other competition scoring 65 points to win. Robbinsdale placed second with 36 points, followed by Wayzata, Anoka, U. High, Hibbing, Lakeville, and Excelsior.
Mound had six regional champs: Swanson, 95 pound class; C. Schwalbe, 112; Iacano, 133; Goodman, 138; L. Schwalbe, 145; and Soderholm, 154. Pierce, Laumann, Dietrich, and McArdle took second places in the regional, and also entered the state tournament with the first place winners the following week.
The state meet was held at the University of Minnesota Field House on February 28 and March 1. Mound again emerged the victor with a total of 28 points, this time followed closely by Litchfield with 26. Calvin Schwalbe, Dick Iacano, and Lewellyn Schwalbe all placed first. Bill Soderholm finished second, and Lyle Swanson third in state competition.Joe Goodman ran into some tough luck for the second consecutive year. He was injured in the preliminaries and wrestled under a severe handicap for his next two matches, but placed fourth in his class.
Six boys on the first squad graduated. They arc Dick Iacano, Bill Soderholm, Lawrence Pettit, Lewellyn Schwalbe, Tom McArdlc, and Joe Goodman.
Wrestling is, year by year, proving more of a major sport. It is a sport that requires a good deal of hard work, strong determination, and stamina on the part of the individuals participating. This past season proved the most successful as well as the one in which the most boys showed an active interest. Many went out for the sport, and fourteen—Lyle Swanson, Roy Pierce, Calvin Schwalbe, Floyd Laumann, Kcrmit Dietrich, Dick Iacano-captain, Joe Goodman, Edwin Schumacher, Lewellyn Schwalbe, Bill Soderholm, Jerome Dickey, Tom McArdle, Lawrence Pettit, and Joe Gibson-mana-ger—received letters.
Next year the wrestlers look forward to another successful season with seven returning letterman and a large number of good prospects in their ranks.
The Mohian staff and student body again extend their congratulations to the 1947 'mat champs’ and their coach for a great job well done.

The baseball team, with eight returning lettermen, had an inconsistent season but came through with three wins against three losses in the conference, also splitting even outside the loop.
In the first game, the boys polished off Eden Prairie, 12-6. "Windy” Hastings got four for four in this one. and "Lefty” Lindholm and "Terror” Timpe allowed only three hits.
Waconia capitalized on seven errors by the fellows to win, 8-6, although both teams got six hits. Both of these games were non-conference.
In the first league tilt, the bascballers went to Way-zata and lost a pitchers’ duel, 8-3. Don Timpe struck out twelve men, and Dave Koch struck out nine Mohawks, but Wayzata won on strong base hits and running.
Next, Robbinsdale came out on top of a 5-1 score, largely because of a four-run fourth inning. Otherwise, in five innings, the Robins were set down in short order. Timpe got three for three to lead both teams at the bat.
But then the fellows turned to winning ways as they trounced Excelsior 6-2, with Pitcher Timpe getting eleven strikeouts. We had a good first inning, four runs to be exact.
St. Louis Park was the next opponent, and the boys won a ding-dong game, 4-3. Russ scored in the seventh inning on Haddorff’s double to provide the winning tally. Park’s seven errors helped, too.
Following this, Hopkins topped the Mohawks, 12-1, using a six-run second inning and five errors to win.
However, the last game was a beauty as the diamond demons belted U. High out of the park, 26-1. Jack Russ had five runs; Hastings and Timpe each had four.
Coach Ed Behmler presented favorite bats to "Windy” Hastings, Don Tunpe, and Doug Bryce—the three top hitters—at the end of the season, which found the Mohawks in third place in the Lake Conference.

As the 1947 track season opened. Coach Oscar Haddorff was hoping his ’47 cinder men could do as well as his '46 group. For in 1946 Mound compiled the best track record in Mohawk history.
Led by Bernard Malcolm Plank, Mound copped the Region 5 title. District 18 crown, and Carleton Relay meet.
Plank had the best day of his colorful high school track career at St. Cloud in the Region 5 meet, by scoring 24 points. Mr. Plank won the shot put, broad jump, high hurdles, and low hurdles. As if this wasn't enough, Bernie took second in the high jump. Towering Frank Major polled five points by winning the pole vault. Added assurance was given by Dick Finley who racked up third in the shot put. Mound assembled 32 points to overshadow St. Cloud's 24-3 5 and Hopkins 24.
In the District 18 tournament, here, Hopkins gave the Mohawks a battle, but Mound edged the Warriors 39 . to 38-5 6. On his last broad jump. Plank leaped through the mud 19 feet 10 inches to better Park's Don Carlson, and win the meet for Mound. Malcolmn garnered 22% points, while Finley, Major. Hokanson. Dodds, and Hagg all added to Mound’s victory.
Down at Northfield earlier in the spring. Mound won Carleton's Invitational Relays, defeating Hopkins 32 to 29-2 5. Bill Hagg's fifth place, half-mile win over Hopkin’s Jerry Slavin turned the tide to victory for Mound. Versatile Bernie scored 20 to again pace the Mohawks.
Plank also broke school records in the broad jump, low hurdles, and high hurdles. In the broad jump he leaped 20 fret 6 Vi inches, ran the highs in 15.9 seconds, and the lows in 23.7 seconds.
Coach Haddorff issued letter awards to Plank, Major, Finley, Hagg, Dodds, and George Hokanson. Other boys who played a prominent part, but didn’t earn letters were: Walter Bittner, Charles Harriman, Vernon Anderson, Don Ulrich, Glenn Lewis, Jerome Dickey, and Oscar Haddorff.
Bernard "Mac” Plank, the Mohawk’s all-round ’46 track star, garnered 22V2 points in District 18 meet and broke three school records.
Mound’s cinder men had seven returning seniors as the backbone for their 1947 track squad. They are pictured below displaying the two placques and the trophy won during last year’s competition.

This year’s Junior High football team proved a surprise to everyone, including themselves, by compiling a record of three wins and one tic. Their success was due to the co-operative effort, courage, and willingness to do their best, displayed by the whole squad and the coach, Mr. Joe Berge.
For the first time the Junior High awarded athletic numerals, which correspond to the varsity letters awarded in Senior High. Twenty boys were fortunate enough to win one of these numerals.
Junior High basketball began with interscholastic scrimmages. Later, they played games with Edina, Wayzata, and Excelsior.

The 1946 golf season was not too successful; however Coach Harold Rasmussen saw improvements in this year’s golfers and looks forward to a better organization in years to come with more boys taking greater interest. The 1946 golf competitors for Mound were St. Louis
Park, Wayzata, University High School, Robbinsdale, and Hopkins.
Two boys—Captain Jim Bryce and his brother, Doug —were entered in the state golf meet. These same two boys received letters, and eight golfers returned for the ’47 competition along with new members.

Mound’s athletic department initiated a new activity last fall, when a Cross Country track team was formed. Twelve boys responded to Coach Haddorff’s call, and three of them—Mel Hoaglund, Dale Lucdtke, and Bob Magnuson—participated in the state meet which was held Friday, November 8, 1946, at Lake Nokomis.
Eighteen schools entered the event, consisting of a two mile run, sending a total of 144 boys into competition. And, although none of our fellows placed high, they gained valuable experience that they can use next year.
This will be an annual autumn affair, and Coach Haddorff looks forward to improvements each season.

The school year of 1946 47 marked a milestone in the history of Mound’s Girls’ Athletic Association, as the official constitution was formed and adopted. Mound’s GAA differed from similar organizations in that all points were earned by activities participated in during after-school hours. This was found to be necessary because of the school’s bus system which makes it impossible to require girls to stay after school.
The association also differs from those of other schools because of the fact that we have almost 100% enrollment while in other organizations only those having the time

to participate arc the ones that join.
Every Monday credits were recorded for activities. The points counted toward awards which were emblems, pins, and charms. Each one counted, and it wasn’t long before you had enough for your award. Awarding was established on a Junior-Senior High basis.
Diane McDonald held the office of president, and each class, seventh through twelfth, placed two members on the advisory board.
Each year the student body looks forward eagerly to the annual Junior-Senior Girls’ Basketball game. The past year was no exception. In fact, it proved the most exciting game on record. The final outcome, a 32-28 victory for the seniors, was a surprise to many. The juniors, who had warked harder and were better prepared, were the favored team.
With seconds to play in the regular game, the seniors dropped in a basket to tie the score, 28-28. Referees Haddorff and Nelson called a three minute overtime in which the seniors sunk two more baskets, held the juniors to their former score, and rolled on to victory.
High scorer for the victors was Estclla Whittaker with 23 points. Jackie Etheridge was top scorer for the juniors making 14 points, followed by Barbara Allen with nine.
An added attraction to the already exciting game was a 'between-halves’ exhibition of feminine wrestling skill in which Pat Loraas, the Juniors’ choice, defeated Kathleen FitzPatrick, the Seniors’ contending champion, 4-0.
Football and other athletic teams, as well as membership in school organizations, foster a spirit of kinship and fellowship which is desirable.
Football and all other sports require teamwork; and a school paper, or group of class officers, or a pep club, which does not require teamwork is practically a nonentity.

The Homecoming got its rather damp beginning at the annual Bonfire, Thursday, October ioth. The Bonfire committee, under the able leadership of Lynn Klinkcnborg, had gathered a huge pile of wood and brush, but because of the bad weather, gallons of oil had to be added before the blaze made its appearance.
Next on the agenda was the Pep Fcst. The Pep Club had charge of this and helped raise the spirits of the student body. The Council of War with all the various braves, maidens, and squaws, each with his own gift to the team, really foretold what the fate of the Trojans was to be. The auctioneer, Estclia Whittaker, auctioned off choice belongings of famous Mohawks of the past, for promises by the team of T. D., good passes, and long runs. If any Trojans were present they would have known then that there wasn’t a chance for them. A more solemn note was struck with the crowning of our beautiful blond Queen, Mary mar Warrington, by Captain of the Mohawks. Duane Dodds. After due respect was paid, the pent-up spirit of the Moundites let go in singing the school song. Everyone left with thoughts of what a "Tripping” the Trojans were in for.

The decorating committee was divided into two groups. Those decorating the field had "Windy” Hastings for chairman and those who prepared the new gym for the traditional Homecoming Dance were under the direction of chairman Vem Andersen. This committee worked long and really transformed the gym into a place worthy of the festive occasion. The outside decoration committee met with bad weather and most of their decorations were ruined, but it still helped make it an unforgctablc Home-coming.

The crowds were tremendous that night of October it, 1946. Everyone who had ever attended Mound seemed to be there. The game, of course, was won as everyone knew it would be, but there were many tense moments when the outlook wasn’t so bright.
Some of the Alumni and almost all of the students attended the dance that climaxed one of the best Homecomings Mound has had.

What is a high school without someone humming a tune as they walk down the hall to their next class? And the person that may be humming that tunc is most likely someone from your high school chorus.
During the Christmas season the Mound chorus, under the direction of Miss Edna Hehn, sang carols in the halls and around the tree and provided the music for our Nativity Scene.
After Christmas, a Girls Glee Club was formed. The club met on Tuesdays and Thursdays to leam new songs and to learn how to blend their voices in harmonious tones.
Various organizations were formed out of the chorus. Some of them were the Triple Trio, who sang at the Junior Class Play and Athletic Banquet, the Boys Glee Club, and the Girls Sextet.
This year the chorus traveled to Hopkins for their spring festival under the direction of Noble Cain.
The purpose of the festival was to appreciate singing together. It was not a contest as it has been in the past; it was for the enjoyment received by singing with others and by meeting new friends.
The Triple Trio—Alice Weiland, Irene Skaret, Lor-
raine Martin, Mary Lou Soule, Janet Eden, Ruth Voll, La Verne Logelin, Marian Scharmann, Franny Gebo— sang for the entertainment of various clubs and organizations. They sang both popular and classical pieces, some of them being "Make Believe," "Why Do I Love You?” and "Anniversary Song.” Mary Lou Soule also sang a solo, "How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings" at a monthly meeting of the Women's Club.
The Mound High School Chorus is becoming a larger and more active student organization year by year. The past year proved a year of the largest memberships in recent times.
Miss Hehn, along with being director of the high school chorus, also directed a junior high organization and taught music in the grades. She also gave private vocal lessons to several students who plan on going into the held of music in the future.
The chorus is one of the school organizations that adds a little color to school life and makes the students pass to their next clases happily humming or singing one of their favorite songs which may be a reverent hymn, a . Negro spiritual, or a novelty number.Left to right: L. Klinkenborg, V. Andmon, W. Ogland, C. Harriman, vice-president; D. Dodds, president, M. Ibberson, secretary; D. Anderson, and G. Anderson.
'The meeting will now come to order ’ says Duane Dodds, president of the Student Council. "Will the secretary, Mary Ann Ibberson, please take roll?” "Grade twelve representatives, please.”
"Charles Harriman and Vernon Andersen.”
"Grade eleven representatives.”
"Lynn Klinkenborg, Delphic Anderson, and Gerald Anderson.”
"Grade ten, please.”
"Today we shall have a report on the history and functions of the High School Student Council and how Mound is following through with this plan”, says President Dodds.
The High School Council is a board made up of representatives from each of the high school classes. In Mound we have three senior representatives, three junior representatives, and two sophomores. These representatives arc elected by their respective classes at the same time as the election of class officers is held. They
Left to right: Mary King. Phyllis Lockhart, Gene McArdle (in air), and Kenny Bjork.
bring the ideas, criticisms, and complaints of their class up before the other members of the council, and these are then considered and finally decided upon by the members of the council under the direction of Mr. Julsrud, the senior high principal. In brief, the members are there to uphold the ideas and rights of their classes.
Our first student council in Mound was organized in the fall of the year 1938. It has functioned in our school every year since then.
One of the student council’s most important duties is choosing the University programs for the following year. The council also provides for unity and cooperation of the pupils and faculty and the developing of the spirit, ideals, and citizenship of the students. It also makes plans for the student government. Another thing the council tries to bring about in our school is more justice and equality among the students. The student council is your contribution to the many things that go into running a school which carries out its functions properly and with a thorough understanding among students, teachers and community.
"Our meeting will now be adjourned if there is no further business, and good luck to the future student leaders of Mound High—the future Student Councils.”
An important factor in the success of any competitive sport is school spirit which is upheld by the cheerleaders. Newcomers to the position this year were: Phyllis Engle, Mary King, Bill Bulbs, and Bob Stair. Before basketball season Gene McArdle and Kenney Bjork were chosen to replace Bob and Bill. These active cheerleaders introduced many new yells throughout the year and did much to build up the moral of the team and the students.

The Dramatic Club was organized at the beginning of the school year by Miss Eva Lou Russell, faculty advisor.
The primary purpose of the first scheduled meeting was the election of officers. Those elected were Lorraine Martin, president; Lynn Klinkenborg, vice-president; Ruth Anne Kepke, secretary; and Bob Claybough, treasurer.
Several one-act plays were studied by the club at their meetings, which were held twice a month. Two plays were presented to the public, "Andanre” and "Tell Doric Not to Cry”, which were produced for the P.T.A. as well as the student body. One of these plays was chosen by a judging committee to represent our school in the District Declamatory Contest.
The club members found entertainment in reading, practicing, and producing small plays, as well as in planning parties and social gatherings.
Spring meetings were devoted to the study of stage craft lighting, and make-up, which arc equally important to the success of a Dramatic Club whose aim is modern entertaining theatrical production.
Local declamation winners were Carolyn Gooder and Joan Lcgus in Junior High and Charlotte Anderson, JoAnnc Streater, Bcttincll O’Donnell, Ruth Voll, and Bob Stair in Senior High. Miss Clair Warweg and Miss Helen Degen coached the junior high students and Mrs. Doreen Savage and Mrs. Evelyn Hanson were coaches in the Senior High.
These seven students entered the district contest at Robbinsdale with Ruth Voll the only one receiving a superior rating. She also received a superior rating in the regional contest at St. Louis Park after which she entered the state finals.
An important parr of any theatrical production i» the "behind the scenes" make-up crew. In our school, the proper making up of the cost was strongly stressed. Under the guidance of Miss Eva Lou Russell, students interested learned all the ’do’s’ and ‘don’t ’ of the trade. Here Miss Russell is shown putting make-up on Dick Tourangeau before the casting of the Christmas Nativity.

The organization that boasts the membership of all Mound’s lettermcn is the popular "M” Club. The past year proved the most successful in that it boasted one of the largest ’star’ memberships in recent years.
In the first meeting of the group, Duane Dodds was elected president, Oscar Haddorff. Jr. was chosen vice-president, and Vernon Andersen was voted secretary-treasurer.
Thirty-nine members took part in the function of the letter winners club, twenty-four of whom were seniors.
Under the supervision of Coaches Oscar Haddorff and Edward Behmler, the "M” Club sponsored the Bomber vs. Intra-mural All-Star basketball tussle, and the Senior vs. Faculty bucketball game, or should we say ’riot’?
"Bubs” Dodds and his crew also took charge of selling and distributing the small individual pictures.
Seniors also were honored by receiving souvenirs bought by the surplus funds in the club’s treasury.
A special room was designated for the letter-winners, but most of their meetings were held informally in the boys locker room.
Mound had the honor of having returned vet’s on
her squads. Daryl Biatzhcim, Tony McArdle, and Kenny Skaret received letters in Football. Daryl was also a star guard on the basketball team. Tony was also a first team member of the 1947 st tc wrestling champions.
Mound, having a good material to work with this year, placed herself as one of the conference stickers in all sports. We had the honor to place these men on All-Conference Football berths—Duane Dodds, captain and speedy halfback, All-Conference backfield man; Vcm Andersen and Glenn Lewis, All-Conference man in the line. Oscar Haddorff, Jr., quarterback; and Daryl Blatzheim, end; placed on the All-Conference Second Team.
In basketball, Daryl Blatzheim, guard, and Oscar Haddorff, Jr., forward; were placed on the All-Conference Team.
The "M” Club was also proud to have on its roster, the State Championship Wrestling Team. Reigning individual champs were the Schwalbe brothers, Calvin and Lewcllyn; and captain of the state’s star grapplcrs, Dick lacano. Bill Soderholm placed second in the state, and Lyle Swanson and Joe Goodman placed third and fourth, respectively.

The year of 4 47 saw the initiation of the first Junior High Student Council. The Council’s aims arc those of higher standards, better grades, and better citizenship.
The ninth grade had three representatives, the eighth grade two and the seventh grade two.
Those elected were: Ninth: Ruth Inman, Norman Skaret, and Sammic Bandh; Eighth: Mildred Krueger and Qifford Waters; seventh: Graydon Watts and John Solberg. Their faculty advisor was Mr. Nelson.
At their first meeting they elected the following officers: President, Norman Skaret; Vice President, Sammie Bandh; Secretary, Ruth Inman; Treasurer, Mildred Krueger. They held meetings once a month.
One of their first projects was for neatness in the halls and lunchroom. Their campaign was carried on by speeches over the broadcasting system. Cooperation was asked and received, as a result there has been a general improvement in neatness.
The first student council was a success so it will be Pago Fifty-six
a "main stay" in the junior high in years to come.
The Mound Junior High Pep Club was organized for the first time this year. The purpose of the club was to sponsor the unification of the cheering of the Mound spectators. The club consists of seventh, eighth, and ninth graders. There are over 135 members and both boys and girls are represented. The first meeting of the Pep Club was held a little after Christmas and the purpose was to enroll the students.
The second meeting was for the election of officers. The officers elected were: President, Trudy Martin; Vice President, Ann Jaspers; Secretary, Joan Allenburg; and Treasurer, Mildred Krueger. In the third meeting the Pep Club emblem was selected. It is an Indian head to represent the Mound Mohawks and is very appropriate. The people that lead this student body are Lois Schaiblc, Marilyn Andersen, and Roger Thompson—our cheerleaders. The cheerleaders have done a wonderful job this year by leading the students in yell for both the Junior High and the Mound Bombers."BROOKTON"
