The Mound gridders started their 1950 season under a new coach. Cal Stoll, who came from the U. of M.
Stoll led the boys through a successful season— six wins and only one loss. The 20-7 win over the fighting Edina team in the Homecoming game highlighted the season.
Dave Kragthorpe, Ron Bates, and Bob Dongoske were elected to the All Conference team. Dave came out on top again when he made the All State team.

MOUND’S ONLY DEFEAT
The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Mohawks’ mighty mites.
The score stood 14-13 beneath the Oriole lights.
Oh. to be away from this, the Orioles’ joint Where less is needed than Dongoske’s extra point.
Now somewhere in this League of Lakes.
The sun is shining bright.
But in a certain Mohawk village,
Not even burns a light.
For with Chapman. Bates, and Iverson guarding Dongoske’s toe.
The ball sailed ’neath the uprights—
Just a trifle low.

Getting a late start seemed to be the only set back of this year's bucketeers. Games were lost by the quintet in the early quarters of the game but were won by these cagers in the final frames.
Aside from Conference play the team went on a trip to Faribault and Stillwater. The Mohawks eliminated the Robins in the district tournament, who had twice beaten the Mohawks before. but were defeated by
Bloomington in the semi’s. Considering the lack of height on this year’s squad, the team did very well against some of the powerful teams in the conference.
Miller. Burgett tangle with two Robins for rebound in close contest.
Bates lays one in. while Smith and Bradley try to cover.

The Mound Nine under the
coaching of Ed Behmler had a fair season. Because of a muddy field the batsmen got off to a slow start, but ended up the season in full power. The highlight of the season was the one-hitter pitched by Dave Kragthorpe against Hopkins. The Redmen have seven lettermen returning
next spring and the outlook for a good season are the best for a number of years. The lettermen are as follows: Bill Marston. 1st base; Ken Nord, 3rd base; Dave Kragthorpe. pitcher; Rich Overby, 2nd base; Dave Iverson, catcher; Bob Dongoskc, pitcher and outfield: Don Brand, outfield.

This year the Thespian Society at Mound limited their membership to thirty.
Their first production was "Dirty Work at the Crossroads." presented two weeks before Christmas and by popular demand, again on Feb. 26.
Their second production “Two Crooks and a Lady” was Mound’s entry in the district declamation contest. The one act play received an “excellent" rating at Robbinsdale.
Officers of this year’s Thespian group are Joe Gerdes. president; Roger Thompson, vice-presi-
dent; Pat Young, secretary; Grace Christiansen, treasurer.
Because Chapter 1054 is now affiliated with the National Thespians. Mound’s Thespian troupe is on its way to becoming an institution. Although the present sponsors and founders, Mrs. Doreen Savage and Mrs. Charlyne Todnem will not be back next year, it is their hope and the hope of the present club that every effort will be made to continue the work and keep up the chapter in years to come.

Page Fort -nineMohawks Hoodoo-ed the Hornets Friday the 13th
"Hoodoo the Hornets” proved an apt slogan for our Friday, the 13th homecoming. Highlites of the traditional parade held in the afternoon, were the Commercial Club float with a complete ofTice on wheels and a little red hot rod that jugged and bumped down the street.
This year the identity of the
queen was kept secret until the coronation ceremonies, just before the kick-off of our game with Edina. Of the three candidates Shirley Gray. Joan Brooks, and Lois Schiable. Lois was given the nod by last year's queen. Jo Anne Haddorff. During the half the chorus and band entertained with several selections. The chorus,
accompanied by the band, formed two bells while singing the "Bells of St. Mary’s." Another formation was a huge American flag made up of chorus members. While in this formation they sang “Era of Peace.” Climaxing the Homecoming festivities was the winning of the game with Edina, 20 to 7. and the dance in the lunch room for the Alumni.
