No one will ever forget the work and enjoyment the cast, crew, and directors put into and received from putting on the play. Or will we forget the roll played by John Voll. the psychopathic maniac, who just wanted to be appreciated and Barbara Hempers wonderful job as Mrs. Gillis. the lady who hired Howard to help around the house for awhile. As the play commences Howard is applying for a job at the home of a poor widow, Mrs. Gillis. At her first glimpse she mistrusted him but she heard that he did such fine work she hires him despite this first impression. He did wonderful work for her but it took him an unreasonably long time. Howard was always snooping around her house and she didn’t care for that, because when she caught him looking at things he locked Mrs. Gillis in the closet. Ruth, Mrs. Gillis’ niece, came to see her and in the meantime she was locked in the closet and Howard had warned Ruth not to tell anybody. While he wasn’t looking Ruth tried to search the room but he always caught her. When Ruth finds out. she wants to leave and Howard lets Mrs. Gillis out of the closet. Just then Doug, the grocery boy delivered the groceries and instead of paying him with money, she wrote out a check and tried to write a note on the back of it, but Howard caught her doing this and then he became angry with her. Howard will be doing something then all of sudden he’ll quit and think with a real far away look on his face and then will chase Mrs. Gillis around the house or try to choke her. He then tried to rent a room but knowing what he was like Mrs. Gillis told him she didn’t have any room to rent. She told him maybe Mr. Stevens, a man down the street had a room that he could rent. When he left the room she tried to call Mr. Stevens, but of course he caught her again. Mr. Stevens noting that Mrs. Gillis was frightened decided to go over to see if everything was alright. When he got there he looked around and all of a sudden he saw Howard backing down the stairs looking at his hands. Mrs. Gillis never again appeared on stage.

April 17, in the school auditorium. As the curtain opened, three angels, Agnes (Donna Burandt), Wilfred (Vernon Syverson) and half-angel, Pilone (Mike Dale) descending down to earth on an artificial cloud designed by the stage hands. Rainbow lighting created a pattern for a sky-like effect. Trying to “make contact” with the souls of Augusta Applegate (Marilyn Herman) and Herman Howell (Dick Davidson). Agnes and Wilfred concentrated with their cosmic counters. Orpha Teel (Pat Pogue), a typical gusher, schemed a wealthy match for her daughter Ruthie (Judy Brown) and Robert Hanley (Ronnie Hayes) by using the aristocratic prestige of her sister. Robert, a rather near-sighted individual, missed the sofa, to meet the floor, and brought the audience with him in hysteria. Trying to squeeze a few dollars from Aunt Augusta’s, bank account to make a success of his new fangled invention, Baxter Bromsley, (Bill Duehn) came with his wife Millie, (Gloria Hehl) and his daughter June (Beverly Noren) to impose upon Augusta, too. Furnishing the comical humor of the play, Pilone played cupid only to entangle the love afTairs of June and Richard White (Terry Gunther) with that of Ruthie and Robert Hanley. Besides making everyone else fall in love, and softening Pilone, not to be outdone, fell in love himself with Augusta’s maid. Diana Clump (Patty Kullberg) who joined the troup of angels to climax the fantasy play. Under the direction of Mr. Donald Nelson, English 12 teacher, Susan Brandts student director, the cast practiced every night after school, “I acted as director last year.” commented Susie, "so it really wasn’t a new feat for me.” Working behind the scenes, the student stage crews helped make the play run as smoothly as possible. Painting and designing sets were Glenn Smith and Syd Alwin. Organizing the publicity was Mary Alice Skay, while Malakowsky headed the committee for sewing and making costumes.

WRESTLING The Mohawks had an unusually large turnout for wrestling this year. “Anchor Man," George Coffee leads by being state champ again with Bob Koehnen in his footsteps also holding a "Champ" title. Coach Boekhaus also comments on the work of Dave Trask and Ralph Pouliot. The Mohawks took first place in the regional championship matches, held at the University of Minnesota: and tied with Faribault for second place in one state. All in all 52-53 turned out to be an exciting and eventful one for our famed “grapplers.” REGIONAL STANDINGS WRESTLING SCHEDULE School Points Mound Op Mound 54 Dec. Robbinsdale 41 2 U.

BASKETBALL Playing 500% ball, the Mohawks were second to Hopkins (state champions), in scoring offensively. Ed Miller was high point man with 249 points; also the valuable man. Although the basketball players didn’t do their job exceptionally well this year, prospects for next year are much better. With Miller graduating, next year’s leaders should prove efficient and hardworking. “Tony Jackson, John Uner, and Don Hennings are good prospects," commented Coach Haddorf.
