THE MOHIAN STAFF
MOUND CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL
INMusical notes have been written by many to express moods, emotions, or incidents. The notes throughout this book are meant to express appreciation for the qualifies which music bestows in each student through listening and performing.
I listened, motionless and still; And, as I mounted up the hill. The music in my heart I bore. Long after it was heard no more. William WordsworthTABLE OF CONTENTS
I. Theme and Foreword ............................... 2
II. Dedication .......................................... 4
III. Music of the Masters ............................. 5-10
The directors and instructors prepare us for our part of the performance in the great composition of the future.
To excel in any particular branch of music it is necessary to practice long and hard. Music can influence scholarship whereby the student exerts more effort on his studies.
V. Popular ........................................ 31-40
Activities symbolize a musical passage of gayety in our scholastic composition.
VI. "Organizations ................................... 41-50
Participation in these extra curricular activities gives the student a basis for determining his selection of a future vocation.
VII. Ability and Unity ................................ 51-63
Just as an orchestra or choir must have indi-
vidual ability for proper balance and unity, so must every participant in sports. A basketball team could not progress without individual ability and unity for teamwork.
64-72Because the majority of the class of 1949 has an exceptional amount of musical talent and ability, the Mohian Staff has chosen to dedicate this Mohian with its musical theme to Mound's capable band director, Myron E. Skow, to show appreciation for all the work and effort he has given to improve and make the band the superior organization it was this year. Through his insistence on daily practice, each student was able to develop his individual techniques and abilities.Dale G. Nelson becomes new Superintendent of Schools

"Money, Money, Money," that was the byword of the class of '50 during the year 1949. In the backs of some of the heads were hatching little schemes. Some of these turned into big schemes. All were for making money.
First on the agenda was a dance after one of the first games. Selling beanies was the next attempt to raise money. This one took a long time to go and
finally had to be supplemented by a "beanie dance." The price of admission was the purchase of a beanie.
The junior class play was reported to have taken in quite a bit of money; at least it broke a recently establi'hed record for attendance.
Only a week after the class play, along came Sadie Hawkins Day and the juniors sponsored a dance by the same name. A contest spurred some juniors to raise money when the magazine driveAt Allegro Tempo

came up. Though not much money was taken in, every little bit helped.
Then red and white emblems that glowed in the dark sold pretty well at 25 cents apiece.
Juniors also took part in other activities and, in their spare time, managed to chalk up a few for their side. Three of the five cheerleaders on the '48-'49 team were juniors: Trudy Martin, Mary Jo Birkland, and Jean Allenburg.
Eleven of their number were chosen for Quill and Scroll honors—Glorianne Kubasch, Lenore Anderson, Jo Haddorff, staff members of the Broadcaster; Carolyn Gooder, Mohian staff member; Mae Forde, service manager of Mohian; John Julsrud and Bill Goudy, next year's photographers; Ann Tuttle, next year's Mohian editor; Dorinda Reed, next year's Broadcaster editor; and Norman Skaret, Mohian business manager for 1949-50.

Brains! That's the word for the sophomores Facts and figures prove that 95 per cent of Minnesota's sophomores have less ability and have poorer grades in their school work than the average sophomore of Mound. Approximately half of the class have more intelligence than 75 per cent of Minnesota's sophomores. These figures are the results of the American Council on Education Examination in which all the present sophomores of Minnesota participated.
Ambitious! That's another word for the sophomores. Even though it was their first year in senior high, there were always some participating in every activity.
In the beginning of the year, many of the boys tried out for football. Then when basketball season arrived sophomores were again among those trying out.Sophomore Class Pace

Contest work also attracted them. Some had declamations, and others took part in the one act plays. The majority taking part were girls.
There were also a number working on the Broadcaster and Mohian staff, and 26 per cent of the band members were sophomores.
Dances sponsored by the sophomores were for the
purpose of supporting the Junior-Senior Prom of the coming school year. This is an expensive undertaking and a huge project for which sophomores begin raising money a year beforehand.
Maurice Tuman, John Kuefler, and Pearl Edlund, their class advisors, have been helping them at every turn.

Our Hearts Were Young and Gay This '49 Day
"Our Hearts Were Young and Goy," the seniors' choice for their class play, was presented at the Mound auditorium at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, April 29.
The play revolves around the antics of the two girls, Cornelia Otis Skinner (Nancy Andresen) and Emily Kimbrough (Audrey Myers!. It is partly autobiographical.
The two girls are going with their parents to Paris, France. They decide that they have reached the age whon thov should be emancipated, so they ore going to take a different boat from the one that their parents are taking. While they are on board the ship, they meet two fellows, Dick Winters (Tom Bell) and Leo McEvoy (Joe Tambornino), who ore also traveling to Paris. There are sparks of romance.
Cornelia has decided to become on actress, ond so her main reason for going to Paris is to take acting lessons from a teacher named Monsieur De La Croix (Ron Krogthorpc). Cornelia, in every way, attempts to go dramatic, and makes any little incident hilariously funny by giving it the theatrical touch.
Emily, on the other hand, is going to Poris to study bollet. Of the two girls, Emily is probably the most serious. She is extremely concerned about their boat trip—whether they will sink or whether they will make it. She is preparing for all sorts of emergencies. She has her lifo preserver out; she blows up her water wings, ond even goes so far as to load the two life boots with fig newtons in case the boat should be stranded.
Mr. Skinnor, (Mel Hoagland), Cornelio's father, is on actor and adds a lot of droll humor to the story as he subtly pokes fun at the girls.
Mrs. Skinner (Joan Legus) is simply an older voriety of Cornelia.
Mazie Andorson and Charlotte Anderson played the parts of two flippant English girls.
Maxine Brand proved the epitome of "une Francaise femme" (in the role of a maid).

Juniors Make Hit With Play,
"Beauty and Beef"
Tryouts for "Beauty and the Beef" were held on Thursday, September 30. Lots of girls turned out, but only a few boys came.
"The choice was difficult," said Mrs. Evelyn Hanson, but she finally chose the following cast: Wendy Bell, Ginny Allen; Bruce Halgren, Beef; Ann Tuttle, Franny Barton; Harold Marshall, Foggy Ryan; JoAnne Haddorf, Mrs. Allen; Don Bruhn, Mr. Allen; Don Trask, Mr, Woods; Don Paulson, Lester Allen; Carolyn Gooder, Dr. Spencer; Marlene Courtney, Mit-zi; Dorinda Reed, Miss Bigby,- Glorianne Cox, Dot; Keith Sayther, Steve; Marlene Perbex, Betty; Bill Heydrick, Bubbles,- Don Peterson, Scaffold; Mary Jo Birkland, Barbara; Bill Martin, Stretcher Bearer; Bill Goudy, Messenger,-Leonard Brozeman, Stretcher Bearer,- Roland Solberg, Professor Barton; Mae Forde, Molly Woods,- Jim Correll, Milt; and numerous extras.
As practice got under way there was much fooling around and lots of fun. A week before the play was given the kids began to settle down. Practices were held just about every school night and a couple of Saturdays.
Except for a few cases of absenteeism and a few discouragements the play come along quite smoothly. Little quips from backstage kept Mrs. Hanson and the cast in stitches.
The play was given at a matinee on Thursday, November 11, for the school and the fact that the 3:30 bell rang and people began walking out in the middle of the last act led to a bit of discouragement backstage.
The big night came on Friday, November 12, and after it was all over everyone was happy indeed.

Mound eliminations were held on March 2 in the auditorium. The district contest on March 15 saw eight Mound students, Pat Young, manuscript reading, Glorianne Cox, oration; Carolyn Good-er, dramatic; Joan Legus, dramatic; Geraldine Ledin, humorous; Maxine Brand, manuscript reading; Bil! Martin, oration; and Karen Hartman, junior high humorous, taking part.
Two of these entries, Carolyn Gooder and Pat Young, received superior ratings in their divisions. The others received "very good" and "excellent" for their selections. The one act play, "Grey Bread", also received a rating of "very good".

Seniors moke Root and vow Jo "Fly By Robins". Ned Buttorfield, Bill Kubon, Bob Englehordt, Mozie Anderson, Bob Mognuson and Dale Luedtke perform.
Despite the fact that pranksters destroyed the bonfire one night too early, the 1948 Homecoming got under way Thursday evening, October 14, with the burning of the second '"hurriedly gathered" pile.
Football co-captains. Wimpy Burmaster and Bill Simertz, set it off by the lighting of the Robins' dummy. Inspiration speeches were given by several facul-members, several alumni, and the "pig-skin" cocaptains. Music by the band and chorus, and cheers led by the cheer leaders greatly increased the pep of the attending crowd.
The traditional snake dance down main street climaxed the bonfire.
The pep fest which took place the following afternoon started the 1948 Homecoming well on its way. Skits consisting of musical impersonations and an imitation pep fest were presented by the Pep Club. The climax of the pep fest was the crowning of blond. Queen Margaret Olson by Wimpy Burmaster,
co-captain of the Mohawks. Queen Margaret had as her attendants Eileen Koch, Arlene Lewis, Janice Streater, Wendy Bell, and Helen Mosch.
The next event on the homecoming calendar was the parade down main street. Many colorful floats were entered, and here and there one could spot the Homecoming slogan, "Fly-By Robins." However, that evening the Robins flew just a little too high, for they downed the Mohawks to the tune of 32 to 0.
During the half of the game, the floodlights were turned off, and the band impressed the crowd with Five formations made visible by pen flashlights, held in each band member's hat. The beautiful Fireworks also awed the crowd.
The dance held in the gaily-decorated lunch room concluded the 1948 Homecoming. Queen Margaret and her attendants, accompanied by their escorts, led the Grand March, and everyone joined in dancing to the music of Bob Farley's orchestra.

As the school season began, the band with 73 members, wos determined to moke this the most eventful yeor it had ever hod. With their first concert on December 2, out of the way, these ambitious studonts settled down for some hard work.
The spring held many activities for which to prepare. Among these were the St. Patrick's Day concert, an all doy band clinic at Excelsior with Gerold Prescott of the University bond as guest conductor and critic, and the District and Stote High School Music Contest-Festival, featuring Schubert's "First Movement of the Unfinished Symphony."
Through the extended efforts of the Band Boosters Club, composed of band members' parents, the money wos raised for financing an exchange concert tour with Detroit Lakes and Two Harbors, Minnesota, on March 31. April I and 2, 1949.
Along with Margaret Olson, president of the band, and Shirley Peterson, who soloed during the tour, were several other soloists and ensembles who participated in the spring contests.
Mound High and the Mohian staff, because they are very proud of the musical organizations and their contribution to the personality of the student, have selected music as the yearbook theme, and hove dedicated it to the industrious, inexhaustible efforts of Myron Skow, director.

With more names on its roster and more experience to its credit the Mound High School Chorus, under the direction of Miss Violet Hy-der, began a "bigger and better" year with its first public appearance at the P.T.A. open-house on November 8. The choristers sang their much rehearsed rendition of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic".
October 28 was a big day for the 12 members chosen to sing in the All-State Chorus which gave a concert for the teachers during M.E.A.
All 80 members took part in the Christmas concert which was given on December 17. The Minnetonka Singers repaid the chorus for its help in their 1947 Christmas Concert by lending a few singers to add volume to Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus."
The next big project was the Easter cantata, "Victory Divine" by J. Christopher Marks. The weeks from January first to April third were spent in preparation of the cantata and the selections for the District Music Festival which was held at Robbinsdale on April 7.
Compositions by Minnesota authors were featured in a spring concert to celebrate the Minnesota Centennial.

The Mound football season was quite a disappointment to the fans as well as a tough one on the boys. The team opened the season with Park at Park. The game was hard fought for three quarters, but Mound fell apart and Park scored twice in the fourth. The score—13 to 0.
The next week Mound foiled to bounce and was whipped by Wayzata. The score was 25 to 6. Sammy Bandh scored for Mound. Don Hall was elected to the team of the week.
Blake was the next one to beat the Mohawks. Although Mound fought hard, they fell 8 to 0.
Mound then went to Hopkins to play one of the best games of the year. Except for two perfect plays and a blocked kick on the part of the Warriors the game was even. The score was 19 to 0.
Then came Homecoming and a sad one it was for Mound as they took one of their worst beatings in years. Robbinsdale 32—Mound 0. Bill Simertz was chosen on the team of the week.
Excelsior come next, but it was not so easy for them to run over Mound. The boys came up with the best game of the season. The score was 7 to 6. Except for a 95-yard run by Excelsior the Mohawks would have been the victors as Mound out-downed
the Blue Jays 14 to 2. Bill Simertz scored and John Dale was chosen on the team of the week.
U High then came to Mound to wind up the season ond believe it or not. Mound won! News! Mound 7— U High 0. Joe Tambornino scored for Mound and John Dale and Bill Simertz made the team of the week.
Bill Simertz was chosen on the all conference team at an end ond Don Hall made tackle. The team showed a lot of improvement toward the end of the season and should be tough next year. Returning will be Captains Bill Simertz and Sam Bandh, Dave Kragthorp, Gay Eidem, Ed Knutson, Roy Pierce, Roger Eckmon, plus a host of other boys who were on the B team.

Non-Varsity Teams Make Wins, Bring Trophy To Mound
The Mound bosketbollers got off to an unusually fine start, but they failed to improve as much as expected. However, the records show that the Mohawks won ten games ond lost eight over the entire season, which is an especially encouraging record because so many of the boys were only juniors.
The Mohawks opened the season against a nonconference foe, as usual, and showed the local followers more than they expected to see, although they lost to Patrick Henry of Minneapolis, 31-30.
After dropping the first conference game to a strong Hopkins quint, the locals won three in a row, beating Robbinsdale, University High, and St. Louis Park. The first of these was the Lake Conference "Upset of the Year". After the Robins had been selected the pre-season favorites, this game provided a great deal of the satisfaction gotten out of the basketball season.
After playing one of their poorer games of the season and losing to Excelsior, the men of the Red and White found themselves on the other end of one of the seasodn's upsets when they lost to a weaker Wayzata five.
During Christmas vacation Mound sponsored its first Invitational Tournament and kept the beautiful trophy right here in school by beating Buffola, district 19 champs, in the finals. In the first round of the four-team tourney. Mound beat Deephaven while Buffola was taking care of Delano.
The going was rough during all of January. The Mohawks didn't win a game through all of the month. Things picked up in February when Mound won victories over U. High, Wayzata, and St. Louis Park.
This left Mound in fourth place behind co-champions Robbinsdale and Hopkins and third place Excelsior.
The locals finished fourth in the district tournament Led by all-conference Bill Simertz, they edged Bloomington, the Valley champs, in the first game, but then fell to Hopkins once more.
Bill Simertz was elected team captain, most valuable player, and was also chosen for the all Lake Conference team.

Lack of a finished diamond was the straw that broke the '48 baseboller's back. With five conference games and two practice games to play, the Mohawks lost four conference and one practice games. Park was the conference team that folded up and said "Uncle" to the Mound men.
The '48 squad had seven let-termen back, all but two of which play some infield position. They were Roger Klingensmith and John Allenburg, catchers,-Corky Gothman and Robert Lindstrom, pitchers,- Oscar Had-dorf, short; and Ronald Krag-thorpe and Floyd Laumann, right and left fields, respectively.

Bill Simertz jumps for Mound points at 1948 track meet.
Mound's trackmen had a fair season, placing fourth in the district, and sending two cinder pushers, Bill Simertz and Oscar Haddorff, to the region and state meets.
Mound participated in ten meets of which they won two, came in third twice, fourth in two, and fifth in one.
Don Ulrick, Mound's "mile man", set a new-school mile run record at the St. John's Relays. Ulrick's time was 5.02.9 minutes; he replaced Hart Graeber's 5.04.6 record which was set in 1945.
The season started out with three lettermen and ended with 15, five of which were back for the '49 season. They are Sam Bandh, Leo Zaback, Lee Anderson, Robert Koechler, and Bill Simertz.
With some good weather and luck. Mound, aided by its veterans, should have a profitable season for the '49'ers to look bock on.
