WYNSTRA Superintendent N the peace-time world of tomorrow, you are going to play the major role. On your shoul- ders will rest the worldls illsg in your hands will lie the worldls future. If you could magically order that you of tomorrow to fit your dreams, you would specify a full measure of charm and wisdom and of wit and goodness. You can-you are-ordering that you of tomorrow, not magic- ally, hut slowly, painstakingly, step-hy-step. To- day's thoughtless act or well-considered action is tomorrowls hahit-an inseparable part, whether blemish or glory, of ltomorrow's you. W. S. VVYNSTRA S the seasons follow one another endless- ly in succession so do the affairs of men move inexhorahly across the stage of time. You have little choosing of the hour or day when you will assume the full responsibility of a man or woman. But you can choose how well prepared you will he when that day comes. Most im- portant will be your inner resources of courage, imagination, and daring. Dream great dreams- then boldly will them into reality! E. F. SAYRE E. F. SAYRE Principal Co Donald A.

The Pep Club under the direction of Miss Hazel Mitchell put on many clever drills, most ol' which were done with candlelight. Through all our years we took part in dramatic productions. ln our freshman vear, Nadine Bartle was in the all-school play and was the only freshman initiated into 'l'hespians. ln our second year, Gladys Oakland was the feminine lead in "June Mad."

Seniors holding major positions on the an- nual stail' were John Ferguson, business managerg Gladys Oakland, senior editor: James Anderson, boys' sports editor, and Johanna Teiseth and Annette Swanson, girls' sports editors. Several social events were sponsored by the class, the outstanding ones being the junior prom and the senior ball. The junior prom was a "Stardust Ballf, in April ol, I9-B at the Skagit country club. 'llhe senior hall, "Aloha," was an informal al'- l'air in May ol' 194-l. VVe enjoyed games, dancing, swimming and other sports at the annual senior picnic which we held at l-ake Goodwin, May IO. ll'e elected ten girls oi' the class, out- standing in scholarship, leadership, and character to attend the banquet given by the Business and Professional Wfomcnis Club ol' Mount Vernon.

I Honor Society HE Honor Society is an organized group of sophomore and junior students who have earned twenty-four and fifty points respectively during the year, according to grades. Our president this year was Robert Valentineg vice-president, Ray Tennysong secretary, Peggy Smith, and Mr. Ferris acted as our advisor. In the fall of the year we sponsored a banquet for the new sophomore members, welcoming them into the organization. Refreshments were served and an inter- taining program was enjoyed by all. At a general assembly the Honor Society pins were awarded to all members. The club also had charge ol' the assemblies during the year. Torch Society VVENTY-THREE seniors, outstanding in scholarship, were presented with Torch pins this year. Eighty points at the end ol' our junior year are neces- sary to be a member of the Torch Society during our senior year. If a student has earned one hundred ten points at the end of his fourth year he may keep the Torch pin. This gives us something to work for during all our high school years. Members of the society not in the picture are Anna Marie Looy and Bob Valentine. Our president this year was Bob Valentine, vice-president, Ray Pl en- nyson, and secretary, Peggy Smith. 36 I Front row Ileft to right- 'l', Irheary, I"r4-ts, Lutrn, . r. lit-iris. ack row Ile-ft tu righti- t Too row llc-fl to rip.fhU-Singletn-rry, Sayre-. ldklnnd, Lindberg, Lloyd, J.

Pro- gram committees presented some lorm of entertainment at each meeting. Our programs delved into modern dramatics a hit, and enlivened the more serious side of Greek Drama. Our lhespian Troupe now belongs to the National ilihespian 'liheater lor Victory Program and when called upon presents patriotic plays for different occasions. Advertising lor the senior play and the all-school play was carried on by us, mostly by carrying sandwich boards on hlain Street. Although producing sour laces at the time, it brought smiles as the success ol' the play was our crowning glory. Quill and Scroll HE would-be journalists ol' our high school who write three hundred inches ol' copy lor the Bulldog or another approved publication and are given the approval ol' the Quill and Scroll advisor, Mr. Ray Cowell, may become members ol' Quill and Scroll, an international honorary society for high school journalists. Credit toward membership is also given for holding a position on the Bulldog stall. Six journalism students who were accepted into Quill and Scroll this year were Barbara Bennett, Billie Carter, Nancy Mason, llclen Pinlterton. Shirley Rogers and Bob Russell. P eu Bulldog O us of the Bulldog staff falls the task of editing and publishing the high school paper, the Bulldog. Chewing a steadily diminishing pencil over a particularly hard assigned story is no small part ol' our job, for the paper is put out bi-weekly, under the direction of Mr. Ray Cowell, journalism instructor. Stall' changes are made every six weeks, and a new "beat" is assigned each reporter. Editors this year have been Billie Carter, Bob Russell, Helen Pinkerton, and Nancy Mason. Our business managers were Barbara Bennett and Shirley Rogers. This is definitely the place for those budding journalists with a nose for news-and a pencill S lc a gi n a E, the Slaagina stall, aided by Miss Cornelia Hanson as advisor, are con- stantly worltingq for a bigger and better annual. We are the official statisticians and compilers ol' events of great importance around school. It is our duty to capture forever the spirit ol' each particular school year and enclose it in this-the Slaagina as a pleasant and ever vivid reminder of school days. Stall' members this year were Helen Pinkerton, editor: Nancy Mason, assistant editor, John Ferguson, business manager, Jimmy Anderson, sports editor, Gladys Oakland, senior editor, lllargaret Lutro, junior editor, Peggy Smith, sophomore editor: and Nancy johnson, freshman editor.

VVe learned how to usher by practicing on one another and held rehearsals before each performance. Remembering that each section is lettered differently, that there are no rows for the letters l and Q, and that X, Y, and Z are in the balcony was necessary in order to lead a person to his proper seat. The officers that we elected were: Lois Billgren, president, and Eldora Alm, secretaryetrcasurer. bliss Dorothy Currie was our advisor. Library Club E, of the Library Club, celebrated our fourth year of service to the students of Mount Vernon High School this year.

Qrclfestra NDER the capable instruction ol' Mr. Harry Steele, musical director since l92O, we ol' the Mount Vernon High School orchestra, concluded our twenty-fourth successful year. Our twenty-five members were featured in the annual Christmas and spring concerts as an outstanding instrumental organization. During the past school year, our group included eleven string instruments, one drum, two bases, one bassoon, one saxophone, two horns, two elarinets, two coronets, one trombone and two flutes. Band E ol' the Mount Vernon High School band feel that we had a real part in the schools war effort this year. Among our many patriotic activities, LlIlLlCI' the direction ol' M r. Harry Steele, were our musical participation at a boat launching, the bond parade, the local Holstein show, the Victory Harvest Festival held in the late summer, and the dedication of the servicemen's roster at the American Legion hall. VVe played our school songs at all the home football and basketball games, and gave a 'Adress' assembly for the enjoyment of the student body of the school. As always, our participation in the annual spring Concert and in the gradu- ation exercises highlighted our yearly program, and we stand confident that our contributions brought enjoyment and inspiration to many. acalulh USIC! The word itself is magic. The inspiration and comfort it brings to all people, especially in these troubled times, can not be measured. The words of a song can bring a soldier close to home or stir him to great achievement. Unforgettable songs have been born in times of stress. Old and new songs, sweet and stirring songs-all these, we vocalists brought to our listeners this year, in our concerts and Victory sings. We sing the songs of a free nation with the hope that one day the song of freedom might be heard everywhere. CHOIR First row Cleft to right! Torseth, Schloemer, Carlson.

Choir E. of the choir, under the direction of Miss Frances Miller, have tried not only to develop our own musical interests, but also to bring entertain- ment to the students and faculty of Mount Vernon High School as well as to our parents and friends. We presented our usual Christmas and Spring concerts for the public, and also several Victory Sings in which the entire student body participated. At the beginning of the school year, we elected our officers. They are as follows: president, Bill Blackmore, secretary, Nadine Battle, and student leader, john Ferguson. Girls' Glee Club HE Girls' Clee Club, composed of seventy freshman and sophomore girls, made their first appearance at the Christmas concert and also for both students and the public in the spring. Of special interest was, "The Walnut Tree," by Schumann in which harp and violin accompaniments were played by Phyllis Lawson and Marjorie Sayre. Debussy's "Clair de Lunef' accompanied by Pat Calbom, and "Looking Glass River," directed by Mary Martin, student conductor, were also enjoyable. Lois Lillygreen, Dorothy Nelson and Marjorie Sayre sang the solo part in "If Thou Art Near," a Bach chorale. Boys' Glee Club HIRTY-TVVO boys, freshman and sophomore, sang in the Boys' Clee and participated in both the Christmas and spring concerts. "Nazareth," by Counod and "White Christmas," from "Holiday Inn," were outstanding in the Christmas concert. The group numbers which they sang in the spring concert were, "Old Man River," by Jerome Kern, "De Cospel Train," a Negro Spiritual, and a group of service songs including, "What Do You Do In The Infantry," "Hit The Leather," and "Song Of The Bombardiersf' directed by Richard Swanson, student director. Interesting bits of information about each number were given by Cordon Hanstad, president of the glee club. 1' ff ff N X N X . , f X fq f W WCM!!! wx xxxff jgfgy 1 ff ,X 4, lk 'wfgyfk 7 A A A "' +17 . 1 , , I if I .1 nv, W .',f,p! f , v,yl X 1 iff , I " ' if NE W!! fi I vu ' ay fxff X V 'r f ff M 0 XR af rjf' ' 443 1 , xxx xv '-A- X , ,J O VA f My 'V ,g l ,, V f 77 if! fff fl x ,gg f 1 if 'f'l,1', I X b Anderson Capt.

VVith the score tied O-0 in the last 40 seconds ol' plav, lN'lonroe's Vernie llerglund went oil' tackle 50 vards lor a touchdown. The Bulldogs outplaved the visitors throughout the game, hut lailed to punch over a score. lX'lount Vernon amassed over twice as many first downs as Monroe. lllurys1'ille 18-I3 Behind I8-O in the liourth quarter, Mount Vernon's injury-ridden Bulldogs made one ol' the liinest comehaclis ever wit- nessed on ,Xslxev Field. Plaving in 75 to 80 degree heat, the Mount Vernon team thrilled the lians with two snappy touch- downs in the dying minutes of the game. Clill' Schroeder scooped up a hloclaed punt and galloped five yards for Mount Vernon's lirst score ol' the season. Minutes later Duane Smith elimaxed a savage Bulldog drive to score on a line play from inside the IO-yard line. Seconds afterward the gun sounded. Snolzomislz I-I-0 A listless Green and VVhite elex en went down to delieat hetore a hard hloclting Sno- homish Panther team. Not scoring once, Mount Vernon was outplayed during the entire game. Nothing can he said for the Bulldogs, Snohomish looked like cham- pions. Burlington 13-6 Fans ol' Mount Vernon began to take heart after this game, defeat though it was. For three quarters the Bulldogs threw a scare into the undefeated Tigers, but vic- tory eluded them. Rex Hauser, giant Tiger hack, proved Mount Vernon's undoing. His savage line hucles finally wore down the Bulldogs who grudgingly gave up two touchdowns. Boh hflason, freshman hack, plunged over for Mount Vernon in the second quarter but a last minute spurt by the Bulldogs fell short in the fourth quarter. Ifirst row-Mgr. Starkweather, lr.

Hal Davis, speedy Eagle back, went around end for both of Ar1ington's scores. Mount Ver- non, never out of the game, threatened many times. Argus Blackburn was the main Bulldog offensive threat, while Ruth- ruff and Valentine got in the opponents' hair all afternoon. Cliff Schroeder, the fifth man in Arlington's backfield, covered him- self with glory as well as mud. Things were looking up for Mount Vernon. Edmonds 6-19 Playing like champions, the Mount Vernon Bulldog eleven annihilated the strong Edmonds Tiger team. Scoring twice in the second quarter and once in the third, the locals completely routed the visitors. The Bulldog line charged like demons to smother the vaunted Tiger attack. Herb Payne, Tom Henry, and Wally Pmuthruff pulled down 8 passes in 13 attempts. Two of them went for scores. Argus Black- burn and Scott Wynstra cracked the line, which was opened time and again by the charging Bulldog forward wall. Bob Val- entine and Blackburn drove the Tigers crazy with their daring end runs. It was a glorious victory for the Green and VVhite and optimism ran high. Lake Stevens 7-13 In a hard fought battle on Askey Field, the Bulldogs again looked like champions by trouncing the Lake Stevens Vikings. Sporting the biggest team seen here in years, the Vikings started out like a ball of fire, but were soon cooled off by the 52 scrappy Bulldogs. Using line plays and passes, the Green wave drove down to the two yard line in the second quarter from where VVynstra went over standing up on a weakside buck. On the first scrimmage play after the touchdown, Jimmy Ander- son intercepted a Viking pass and scamp- ered 36 yards for another score. This wound up the scoring for the Bulldogs, but Lake Stevens pulled a pass triple lateral with a minute to go in the fourth quarter which went for a score. The Bulldog line again dominated the field, while the backs made good use of their opportunities. .Anacortes 25-O In a sudden reversal of form, the Bull- dogs bowed to Anacortes 25 to O. Only in brief snatches in the second quarter did the locals look like the team of two weeks be- fore. Clifford Foss, Seahawk quarterback, tore the Bulldogs' line apart with his savage running, and his dead-eye passes were gobbled up by Olson, Erickson, and Mur- ray. There was little to say for Mount Vernon, they were a thoroughly beaten eleven when the final gun sounded. Ana- cortes looked very much like champions. Sedro-Woolley 460 Sedro-VVoolley's Cubs, led by Spud Walley, completely routed the Bulldogs on Greene Memorial Field in Sedro-Woolley. Mount Vernon threatened in the first part of the game, but that was about all. In the first, third and fourth quarters the Cubs scored at will, having no mercy on the hap- less Bulldogs. With a paper line and ab- solutely no pass defense, the Bulldogs played their worst game of the season. This game ended the season for the Bulldogs.

Sedro-Woolley, a strong team of veterans, was unable to shake the battling Bulldogs until the last few minutes of the game. Mount Vernon's inexperi- enced fivc gave a good account of them- selves, but were not yet ready for a team of Sedro-VVoolley's calibre. Concrete 37--Mount Vernon 43 Playing basketball like it was made to be played, the Green and White outscored thc Concrete Lions 43 to 37. Led by LaDon Henson, the Bulldogs completely outplayed the upriver five, who put up a great fight nevertheless. Anacortes 27-Mount Vernon 17 Fighting desperately, the local five had the champion Anacortes Seahawks sweat- ing all the way. Only a barrage of baskets by Bay Polly, Seahawk high-scorer, kept the Bulldogs from one of the biggest upsets in years. Mount Vernon was ahead for a time in the third quarter. LaConner I7-Mount Vernon 32 Playing excellent ball most of the way, Mount Vernon won an easy victory over the LaConner Braves. LaDon Henson paced the scoring with counters. The small LaConner floor hampered the Bulldogs somewhat, but could not stymie them com- pletely. Burlington 28-Mount Vernon 38 Charging out of the north, the Burling- ton Tigers started like a whirlwind on the local floorg but Mount Vernon's smooth- working Bulldogs changed the Tigers' stripes to spots in front of their eyes by a basket barrage that was beautiful to behold. The visitors fought all the wav, but they had met their match in the Bulldogs. Sedro-Woolley 39-Mount Vernon 35 Staving off a last minute rally, the Sedro-Woolley Cubs downed Mount Ver- non in a wild and wooly game before a packed house. The Green and White played desperately but victory eluded them. The Cubs played fine ball to win. Concrete 25-Mount Vernon 24 Mount Vernon played listless ball for three and a half quarters, and when they did wake up it was too late to save the game. A last minute rally fell short and defeat was the penalty. Anacortes 40-Mount Vernon 25 In the clutches of one of Anacortes' greatest teams, the Bulldogs were trounced severely. Anacortes displayed the type of basketball that marked them as one of the state's leading teams. The Seahawks were never in danger, although the Bulldogs played good ball even in defeat. LuConner 21-Mount Vernon 26 A stubborn LaConner team gave the Bulldogs a hard tussle on the local floor. The Green and White were hard pressed to win, and the game was in doubt all the way. The game was slow in its early stages, but picked up at the end. Some good shoot- ing was all that saved the Bulldogs. Burlington 22-Mount Vernon 26 The Bulldogs sewed this one up in the third quarter with an exhibition of basket- ball playing that left the fans agog. The Tigers were plowed under by the deluge of points, and a rally of their own fell short in the last minutes of play. The Bulldogs played spotty ballg at times it was brilliant, and other times not too good. It was good enough to win the last game of the county season. 5: ad Front row- Mf-Er. Pederson, Stover Sharp.

Milton Hanstad, infielder turned pitcher, handcuffed most opposing batters to date, only losing to Anacortes. The team has displayed much batting power, hitting the ball well in all but the first Sedro-Woolley game, where Pete Lee lost a heartbreaker. Herb Payne, early season star, was injured after the opening county game and forced to the sidelines for the season. The first nine was composed of Cannon, catcher, Tennyson, first base, Minahan, second, Silvernail, third, Mitchell, short, Gross, left, McLeod, center, and Anderson, right. The scores are listed on page 53.

We were led in a successful year of activity by 'lanette O'Leary, presidentg Annette Swanson, vice-president, and Nancy Mason, secretary-treasurer. Miss Hazel Mitchell was our advisor and coach of all teams. An unusually large number of freshman girls turned out for sports this year and became new members of the G. A. A. A new sport we took up this year was field hockey which proved popular with all the girls. Our "Foot Brawl" sport dance at the Y. M. C. A. began the social activity for the entire school. Highlight of our doings for the year was our Circus-Carnival, April 14, in the gymnasium. Both young and old enjoyed it immensely to judge by applause and proceeds. Grace Pedersen was master of ceremonies and introduced each of the acts which included vocal numbers, clowns, trained animals, strongmen, a Hawaiian dancer, a real live pony and an "honest-to-goodness wolf." Music was given out by june Sharp and her "Flats" After the circus, camival attractions were open to all. We took our annual weekend trip to Camp Kirby April 29 and 30. The camp theme, "Leap Year," was considered appropriate by all. Next year's presi- dent, Therese O'Leary, was toastmistress at the banquet the night of April 29. More than fifty girls went to camp and everyone reported that she had a memor- able time. The Girls' Athletic Association closed the year on an optimistic note for next year. Basketball Although turnouts for basketball were slighlty delayed on account of the boys' occupation of the gym approximately fifty-seven enthusiasts turned out to play. A hard fighting junior team came out the victors with the seniors second. Hockey Hockey, a sport that was just introduced this year, drew a large turnout of girls. In the final games the juniors took the seniors by two points, thereby com- ing out first, with the seniors second. Volleyball Turnouts for volleyball began in March and an energetic freshman team came out on top with the juniors second and the sophomores trailing. I. "Bye now." '.
