MOUND HIGH SCHOOL Mound, MinnesotaThis hand is opening the door to our 1955 annual and to its theme, hands. Everyone of our days at school hos begun with a scene similar to the one above — a hand opening a door. Hands played an important part in our school days. When our hands opened this door, they opened the door to many fine experiences. During our life our hands may open many doors, but never one that will bring back any fonder memories than those of school.
To The Seniors:
You ore 102 strong; totally you represent a lot of potential. Properly applied, and in the spirit of giving your best, the community, your employer, and finally you, will benefit immeasurably. Whatever you do upon graduation, whether if be in the field of higher education, going to work, or into the armed services, set out with determination to do better than you ever have.
"You have to stay awake to make your dreams come true!"
J. M. Julsrud
Principal, Senior High School
To The Seniors:
If your education is to benefit you and the world in which you live, it is necessary that you be a doer.
Edmond Burke gave us the following truism: "The only thing necessary for the triumphs of evil is thot good men do nothing!"
Be doers of good and help preserve our democracy!
J. O. Berge
Principal, Jr. High School
To The Seniors:
You are nearing the end of your High School years. I hope that, wherever you may go and whatever you may do, you will always take advantage of the greatest inspiration man has ever known by asking for guidance from the Supreme Being. Our nation was founded, you'll remember, "With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence." That faith has been a touchstone of progress in this country, and has found expression down through the years to that memorable inaugural prayer of President Eisenhower. Some of the greatest men in industry, the professions, business and government have stated again and again that they could never have accomplished so much without Divine help.
You hove a long head start toward a life of service and accomplishment. Live it well!

Wo remember well the activities we experienced as juniors. "Turn Back the Clock", our junior class ploy, costumed in the 1920 "flapper era", was hilarious success. The highlight of the year was the prom, decorated in the theme of Neptune. Paper mache, miniature fish.
table decorations, gathering sea shells . . . How well we remember! Hard work and a great deal of fun is the definition of your junior year, but look to next year when you're a senior.

A new and exciting experience came when we entered senior high school os sophomores. Thot year we not only had to make acquaintances with new students but we also had to become familiar with new surround ings and meet a new corps of administrators. In the
spring of that year, we sponsored, as a closs, our first big undertaking for the school. This was a dance entitled "April in Paris". This year was the beginning of mony wonderful experiences for us in high school, just as it is for you. Have fun — the time goes fast!

In ninth grade we had our first opportunity to show our abilities in leadership as the upperclassmen of the junior high school. That year, the members of our class were the nucleus of the junior high activities: the athletics, the Teepee Talk (our newspaper), student council,
and homecoming festivities. We really had pride in our freshman chorus under the direction of Miss Mary Steg-ner. You freshmen, have just experienced a preview of the coming attractions in senior high school when you, as seniors, will play the leading roles.

We became more interested in the extra-curricular activities of the junior high when we were in eighth grade. We were now adjusted to the routine of changing classes and teachers every hour. A class skating party was our main social function of that year. You
eighth graders are now accustomed to the system of junior high school, but a bigger job lies ohead of you as you take your places and assume your responsibilities of leadership as ninth graders.

Seventh grade was the midpoint of our educational school years, but actually to us it was the beginning of a new type of school life. We will always remember climbing the four flights of stairs between every class. Becoming accustomed to changing classrooms every hour, carrying all our books with us, not having any recesses, and being able to pass through the halls with-
out the strict supervision of the grade school were our first adjustments in becoming acquainted with the high school. This year we first experienced taking part in homecoming festivities. This is just the beginning, look forward to the experiences and years yet to come, seventh graders; they really leave memories.

As the crowd sat tense and motionless, Denny Buchanan, game football captain, slowly ambled across the stage, eyeing the three Homecoming Queen candidates, Henri Humphries, Gretchen Diedrick, and Sue Overby. Finally, amid much confusion and excitement, the coveted, golden crown was placed upon the head of Gretchen Diedrick, "Miss Homecoming, 1954."
Gretch and her royal princesses were entertained
by the Thespian sponsored Homecoming Show. Then the royal court, consisting of queen and senior attendants, junior princesses, Karen Lange and Gretchen Rosch; and sophomore princesses, Nancy Skindelien and Joy Dolder, proceeded to lead the grand parade.
The royal court offended the game in the evening and Queen Gretchen finished her day by reigning over the "Mardi Gras" Ball after the game.

This year in football. Mound had a better than average season, as they finished with a record of five wins in eight games to place fourth in the conference.
In the opening gome of the season. Mound ran up more points than could be shown on the score board, as they defeated Choska in a non-conference game, 69-6.
Mound also defeated their next opponent, Minnetonka, 19-0. The game was marked by many errors by both teams. Minnetonka was unable to penetrate the Mohawk's defense; while Mound scored three times.

54The setback of the season come in the next two games, os the Mohawks lost to Edina 19-0 and to St. Louis Park 7-6. In each of these games Mound gained more total yardage thun either opponent, but foiled to out-score either team. Mound didn't have any trouble gaining yardage until they were inside the opponent's 30 yard line. Then their attack seemed to bog down and they failed to score.
Edina's three touchdowns all come on long posses that caught our defense sleeping.
Homecoming was made a success as Mound defeated Wayzata 13-0. Both teams had strong defenses, and it wasn't until the closing minutes of the half that Mound was able to score.
All Conference Defensive Tackle
In their next game Mound rolled over a young Richfield squad, 38-7. Richfield, a new school, was without a senior class and thus their team was made up entirely of underclassmen.
Mound's third loss came at the hands of Hopkins, this year's Lake conference champions. Mound scored one of two touchdowns against Hopkins in the entire season.
Mound and Hopkins played on even terms the first half of the game, with each team scoring once. During the second half Hopkins broke through our defense for several easy touchdowns to defeat the Mohawks 33-7.
Mound finished the season by Knocking Robbins-dale out of second place os we defeated the Robins, 13-6. This game was considered the best played by Mound and served as a climax to the season, as the game showed the players as well as the coaches the type of football the team was capable of playing.

The Mohawk motmen made another good record for themselves this year by ending the season with an overall record of 14 wins ond 3 losses in their dual matches. They did especially well in their conference matches, winning 9, and losing 1, to tie with Robbinsdale for the Lake Conference championship.
The sub-region tournament was held at Mound this year with ten schools taking part. Mound got five boys through the tournament, thereby qualifying them for regional competition. These five boys, Pat Newell, Ken Kenoyer, Bill Niccum, Charlie Coffee, and Bill Koehnen, all went right on through the regional tournament without losing a match. By taking first place honors for themselves, they were able to win the Region Five trophy for Mound for the third year in a row.
The state tournament dealt out some very tough competition, and Mound felt the blunt end of several referee's decisions. However, Mound was still able to place fifth in the state, as Bill Niccum ond Charlie Coffee took third place honors, and Ken Kenoyer placed fourth. Anoka took first place in the state tournament, followed

by Blue Earth, Mankato, and Owatonna.
Christmas vacation brought Owatonna, Mankato, and Faribault to Mound for on invitational tournoment. Mr. Bockhous hopes to moke this a yearly event, -for it gives the Mohawks a chance to test the strength of the powerful southern Minnesota schools. Mankato won the meet with 43 points, followed by Owatonna ond Faribault with 40, and Mound with 31.
Mankato held an open tournament at the beginning of the year which several Mound boys entered. Charlie Coffee came through with a first place. Harry Statts, who wrestled part of the season, took second, and Pat Newell took a third.
Coach Harry Bockhous and his assistant, Mr. Welsch were very pleased with the team's accomplishments this year, and they look forward to an even better season next year. Only Larry Betzler, Doug Trask ond Pat Guy will be graduating this year. Mound will hove nine returning lettermen next year. This includes the five region

Mound's junior high football team this year had a record of four wins, one fie and one loss to become the Lake Conference junior high football champions.
The young Mohawks' only loss came at the hands of Excelsior, as they were defeated 13-0. Mound had previously defeated Excelsior 7-0.
Their teamwork and the fine coaching of Mr. Soder-lund certainly paid off!
The junior Mohawk basketball team also had a good
season. Guided through their practices by the new coach, Bobby Krigg, they gained enough know-how in the gome to hold up a good record for the season. At the time this was written, the boys had won 6 games and dropped only 3. Two of these were losses to Hopkins and one to Wayzata.
After two fine records like these of the junior high teams, congratulations ore certainly in order for the boys that participated and to their coaches.
