Prompted by the desire to become better citizens, we are endeavoring to emulate the work of our predeces- sors. During our three years as students of this high school, we have aimed to attain two things, leadership and cooperation, since we believe that upon these two principles all successful community life is based. As a class we have always striven to uphold and support all movements for the betterment of our school. We have tried to the -best of our ability to talce advantage of the social and educational op- portunities afforded us and as a result hope to become better citizens. We are represented in practically every curricular activity, including dramatics, band, orchestra, and athletics. This year we gave a three act farce entitled "It Won't Be Long Now." In May we gave our stellar social event, the Junior-Senior Prom. It was then a laughing crowd of beautiful maidens and debonair young men danced the night away under a shower of exquisite decorations. We shall ever soar "Upward and Onward" as our motto implies with lofty ideals and a definite goal, success, ever before us. President ....,... ,. HEWITT MITCHELL Vice-President ,.

Recently many new organizations have been added to the curriculum. An orchestra and a 'band composed entirely of junior high school pupils was organized this year by Mr. Radcliffe. They rehearsed once a week. All those who took advantage of this opportunity gained very valuable experience and excellent training. In the spring these two groups gave a splendid concert which the public appreciated very much. Another newly organized group this year was the 4-H Club which had thirty active members. They enrolled for various projects, such as bread making, canning, clothing, room furnishing, health, and dairy calf raising. Their motto was "To make the best betterf, On Friday, December 7, the club had a very enjoyable time at a Christmas party. Some of the members of the club made up a program con- sisting of a violin solo by Florence Cerlcvenilc and piano solos by Genevieve Barone and Lila Sampala. Eleanore Hoglund gave a demonstration on how to make child- ren,s morning slippers from old felt hats. The officers of the 4-H Club are the following: Mary Marincel, of the senior high school, president, Edwin Lahti treasurer, and Mary Marincel, of the junior high school, secretary. The junior high school is very active in declamatory work. This year two de- clamatory contests were held at which forty students competed in the first contest and fifteen in the second. The sub-district contest was held here on Friday night, April 7. The following readings were given: ORATORICAL "Held in Bondagei' ,.,,... .... ..,, ...,....,..,.......,,. .,......

Ann Grivich The junior high school publishes a school paper called "The Silent Spectator" which is under the competent supervision of Miss Violet Lampe. It is an excellent school paper and measures up to the other school papers of a similar type. Another new organization of the junior high school was begun this year. Af- ter the regular schedule of the Girls' Swimming Team was complete, the girls in the sixth grade and the junior high school, under the guidance of Miss Bleecker, Marive Dylen, Mariette Charmoli and Harriet and Henrietta johnson, formed the Girls' Junior Swimming Team for the purpose of improving their swimming and diving technique. There were forty-seven members in the organization. The junior high Basketball Team played an exchange of games with Leonidas. They lost one game at Leonidas and won one at Mt. Iron. On March 25 at three o'clock, the freshmen played the seventh graders for the junior high championship. The seventh graders gave the freshmen a big scare when they held the lead 3-2 at the end of the first quarter When the whistle blew at the half the score was four all. The final score 8-13 was in favor of the freshmen. Fiola with a total of five points, was considered high point man for the freshmen while Kangas and Koivanen were high point men of the seventh grade team The opening game of the umor High Tournament was played between the freshmen and the eighth graders on Thursday March 24 at three oclock in the high school gymnasium The freshmen team held the edge over the eighth graders throughout the game Fiola was high for the freshmen team with a total of five points The junior high school made splendid progress this year because of the un tiring and ceaseless efforts of Mr ohn Duckstad principal of the junior high school We wish to commend him highly for his excellent work PIPPA PASSES The year s at the spring The days at the morn Mornings at seven The hillside s dew pearled The lark s on the wmg The snails on the thorn Alls right with the world' Robert Browning ' 9 , , .

The journalistic course is studied along with the editing of the paper, for it is very essential that students should know the technique of journalism before they proceed to prepare a respectable issue for its readers. The staff has studied thor- oughly the qualifications of a good journalist and has also obtained reliable in- formation on journalistic work from the series of journalism books which were purchased this year. The Tell-Tale has been greatly appreciated by the student body and by the faculty. Ir has also been given an excellent rating by the National Press Associa- tion of which it is a member. We owe the staff and its adviser a great many thanks for rendering their ser- vices in promoting the high ideals of the school. We hope that the Tell-Tale may be as successful and even more so in the future as it has been in the past. Page Thirty-sever! Student Council The Student Council is composed of thirteen members. Five of them are elected from the Senior Class, four from the Junior Class, and two from the Sopho- more Class. The Council elects a president, a vice-president, and a secretary and treasurer. Mr. I-Iarbo, the principal, and an elected member, Mr. Mullett are the advisors. The Student Council is the governing body of our school. With so large a number of students attending the high school, it would be impossible for each student to express his opinions individually, when there is a real need for such ex- pression. It is here that the Student Council plays an important part by repre- senting the student interest and -by acting as a medium for communication between the student body and the school authorities. The Student Council is also entrusted with the power to refer matters, requiring a definite expression of student sentiment, to the student body as a whole for decision, to be a unit for self government of the students, to superintend elections of general interest, to sponsor Social Hours, to supervise the halls, and to preserve the good traditions and customs of the school. Although these services are typical instances of the way in which the Student Council functions, the council is not limited to them. Whenever a new situation or problem arises, it is the policy of the council to consider it carefully and to for- mulate new plans of procedure. President .. .. . . ,... .

Iron High School in 1930, has certainly done all in its power to arouse the school spirit of the students. In the course of the year, it has performed various stunts, which have spurred our football, basketball, and swimming teams on to victory. One of the most hilariously funny stunts was the play, "Romance of Mr. Iron" in which Mrs. Hope Victory Iron sued Mr. M. T. Iron because of his at- tention to Miss Ima Little Defeat. It is evident that this little court scene had much to do with the hard fighting of our boys at the football game with Nashwaulc. It is customary for the Pepmen's Club to have a party each year. In October, the club entertained the Football Team with a dancing party. This event was one that the members of the club looked forward to with great pleasure. There are twenty members in all. The new members are chosen by the old members. Those elected this year are Arnold Nenonen, Alfred Charmoli, Elmer Lahti, Joe Zeppi, Harry Comeau, Nick Pejavich, Nick Grivich, Carl Carlson. The old members of the club are Audre Forsland, Mike Grivich, Rayno Makela, Robert Pejavich, Raymond Muller, Carl Gullekson, James Crothers, Victor Bianchi, Rudolph Dimberio, Arne Carlson, Hjalmer Anderson, and Vernon Herrmeyer.

The game was scoreless until Menelli carried the ball half the length of the field for a touchdown. Joe Grivich scored second by a beautiful end run. Aurora 0, Mountain Iron 7. Mountain Iron defeated Aurora 7-0 on the Aurora field. The game was exciting because of the equality of the two teams. The first quarter ended 0-0. During the second quarter, Menelli caught a pass and crossed the goal line for a touchdown. Menelli drop kicked for the extra point. Keewatin 0, Mountain Iron 6. On October 1, Mountain Iron defeated Kee- watin 6-0. During the second quarter, Carmen made a line plunge across the goal line. The score at the end of the quarter was 6-0 in Mountain Iron's favor. The Mountain Iron team played their best to the last minute. Nashwaulc 6, Mountain Iron 0. Mountain Iron lost the game 6-0. Our boys fought a hard game. It toolc all that Nashwauk had to break through the "old stone wall", but they did it. This was the first team to score against us this season. Biwabilc 15, Mountain Iron 0. Mountain Iron was defeated by Biwabilc 15-0 on Saturday, October 15 on the local field. Our boys put up a hard fight. Several of the second team showed up well. Menelli starred for Mountain Iron. Buhl 22, Mountain Iron 7. In the last game of the season which was played in Buhl, the Mountain Iron eleven suffered the worst defeat of the year with a score of 22-7. Mounain Iron eleven played well in the first quarter by making the first touchdown of the game, but soon after the strong Buhl eleven began piling up the score in their favor and lcept Mt. Iron from scoring throughout the rest of the game.

In the opening game, the local boys, with the odds against them received a de- feat at the hands of Biwabik, 31-13. The team made up for their first defeat by retaliating with a run of three victories which were wrested from International Falls, 23-19, Buhl, 29-23, and the third 23-21 from Gilbert. The Gilbert game was one of the fastest games ever played on the Mountain Iron floor. The large attending crowd was constantly kept on its toes by the continued closeness of the scores. The game ended with the home team leading with a small margin of two points. The following games resulted in three defeats, the Mountain Iron men being triumphed over by Tower, 15-13, Eveleth, 29-17, and Buhl, 26-21. The Internation- al Falls game, which followed, chalked up another victory for the locals with a score of 27-12. The last two victories, preceeded by a defeat received from Biwabik, 33-27, were gained by hard play from Tower, 27-23, and from the Ely visitors, 27-23. The first team line-up included Sistie Menelli, captain, and Frank Cerkvenik, forwards, Roy Nordeen and Joe Grivich, guards, and Frederick Simonich, center. The home team played their best and most outstanding game of the year when they met the Virginia cagers at the District Basketball Tournament. The fourth period of the game was the real thriller of the evening with the score reaching 23 all and slowly creeping to 26-23, when Virginia went into a successful stalling game which resulted in a loss for Mountain Iron. The outstanding player for the villagers was Menelli who scored 12 out of Mountain Iron's 23 points. ......."1:.',1. ' . ' .

Under the expert leadership of Miss Bleecker and because of four nights of good hard practice every week, the girls have completed a very successful year by winning five out of seven meets. Thirty-four girls, including two managers, Murle Eilertson and Geraldine Doris, have worked hard and faithfully under the captaincy of Marive Dylen to make the season a success and to promote a spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship. Of the nineteen entrees in the State Meet held in Virginia on February 17 and 18, five of our girls, Mary Grivich, Katherine Grivich, Annie Marincel, and Katherine Muench, composing the relay team and Marive Dylen, who swam in the hundred yard breast stroke, qualified for the finals, but Marive was the only one who succeeded in placing in the final events. The swimming team will sorely feel the loss of the following through graduation: Marive Dylen, Melba Doris, Mary Grivich, Jene Nordberg, Evelyn Wick, and Mariette Charmoli, our diver, but next yearis team has some fine material coming up from the junior high school, namely, Viola McMahon, Esther Anderson, Esther Giru, I-lelvi Yoki, and Joyce Anderson, all of whom swam in some of the meets this year.

Page Forty-three Boys, Glee Club ' The Boys' Glee Club concluded a successful and profitable year. The club included eleven seniors, seven juniors, and nine sophomores. As a whole, the group progressed very well because of the cooperation on the part of its members. The boys were very fortunate in securing Miss Elsie Perala as their accompanist. We all expected much from the club, and we were not disappointed since the club was under the skillful and able direction of Miss Winifred Wherry. The glee club was expressly formed to study music and to develop musical cul- ture and appreciation in the school. The Music Department is trying to malce music a refining influence which will cast its spell not only on the student but on every one with whom he may come in contact. The club had a very active year with the boys appearing on the following pro- grams: Armistice Day Program Christmas Program Operetta-'Q-lerry of Jericho Road" Parlcville P. T. A. Festival Concert The following are members of the Boys' Clee Club: Hjalmer Anderson, Lau- rence Carmen, Harry Comeau, James Crothers, Rudolph Dimberio, Audre Fors- land, Joe Grivich, Carl Gullelcson, Vernon l-lerrmeyer, Steven Menelli, Raymond Muller, Ludwig Bianchi, Clifford Johnson, Russell Johnson, Daniel Lostrom, Hewitt Mitchell, Frederick Simonich, Donald VanPelt, Edmond Anderson, Robert Fox, Francis Gagnon, Armas Laine, Eino Lehtinen, Emil Marincel, John Nelson, Stanley Nyberg, and Harold Wick. Page Forty-four Senior Girls' Glee Club There's music in the sighing reed There's music in the rushing of a rill There's music in all things if men had ears Their earth is but an echo of the spheres. -Lord Byron The Senior Girls' Glee Club consists of about forty-eight members. The girls meet on Monday and Wednesday of every week. The club was formed for the purpose of helping those interested in vocal music. The glee club has made many appearances during the year. ln the fall they gave a short program. The following selections were given: "Thank God for a Gardenw "Green Catfvedralv "Good-bye, Summer" The club also appeared on the Thanksgiving and Christmas programs. The biggest event of the year was the operetta, "Jerry of Jericho Roadv, given by both the boys' and girls' glee clubs. After weeks of hard and diligent work, it proved to be of great interest to the public. The quality of the voices and the manner of presentation made it one of the outstanding events of the year. Miss Wherry is to be commended for this splendid operetta. The final production given this year was a Music Festival in which the Buhl and Mountain Iron glee clubs participated. lt was an excellent concert that every- one enjoyed immensely. Prige Forty-five The Treble Clef The Treble Clef is an organization made up of sophomore girls. This organi- zation was 'begun by Miss Winifred Wherry as a carry over from the junior High Glee Club and is now directed by Miss Helen Carter. It has proved a valuable addition to our Music Department. There are twenty-one members who meet each weelc on Tuesday and Thursday. They are as follows: Charlene Brozich, Dorothy Buchanan, Ruby Burley, Margaret Dimberio, Isadora Dodge, Geraldine Doris, Mildred Harwood, Sylvia Keto, Laila Koslcela, Jeanette Lambert, Carolyn Larson, Dagmar Lulclcari, Laila Martinson, Katherine Muench, Sadie Nelson, Mary Norcia, Agnes Pejavich, Saimi Perala, Edna Stauty, and Anne Vidmar. The Treble Clef has given several splendid programs one of which was on October 25 when the girls sang the following songs: "Dancing in the Snow" "Prince and the Fairy Talew "De Sandman Songv "Ola Singing Landi' "Play Make Believe" "Day is Donev "The Home Roadv On Lincoln's Birthday, they sang "The Flag Songv. One wintry night in March, having braved a storm, they sang "The Japanese Love Song." and "Play Malce Believe". The Treble Clef has done very creditable worlc, and it is to be hoped that they will continue in the future to gladden the hearts of all who hear them.

High School Band When music sounds, gone is the earth I know, And all her lovely things even lovelier grow, Her flowers in 'vision flame, her forest trees Lift burdened branches, stilled With ecstasies. When music sounds, all that I was I am, Ere to this haven of brooding dust I come, And from times' woods break into distant song The swift-winged hours, as I hasten along. The high school band, a very active organization of our school, meets every Monday morning to study the fundamentals of music under the capable direction of Mr. A. P. Radcliffe. The band is considered one of the most popular organi- zations of our school. This group has taken an active part in many high school programs and has furnished very entertaining music for class plays and the inter- class basketball tournaments. It should be commended for its faithful, enthusiastic services. The personnel of the band is as follows: William Voss, Ruth Nordberg, Ralph Emerson, cornetg Leonard Norcia, trombone, Harold Wick, Fred Koslci, baritone, Daniel Lostrom, bass drum, Charles Walker, snare drumg Rayno Kauppila, Kather- ine Muench, Rose Esther Whitehead, Everett Viicala, Patsy Charmoli, clarinet, Vera Mae Severson, bass violin, Reino Nelson, bass horn, Howard Severson, Alvin Saari, Edwin Anderson, alto. A unique distinction of the band this year is the fact that there is not a single member of the class of '33 in its ranks. And so, because it will not lose any mem- bers through graduation, the band is expected to continue it good work next year and to live up to its excellent reputation so richly merited.
