E, the class of '26, have brought
forth an annual, the aim of which is
to call back the memories of our dear
old class and school by recording the
scope of activities we have taken part in.
As we have always striven to attain the
achievements of scholarship, leadership, and
character throughout our high school course
we have attempted now to keep these virf
tues before our minds in making this book.
In doing so we hope that it will have the
tendency to inspire you toward them also.
May you receive as much enjoyment on
glancing through the pages as we have had
in publishing them.

Earurg IU. Svrharr
Harvey J. Scharr, for thirteen
years head of the Vocational Depart-
ment of the Virginia High School,
finished his earthly course April 3rd,
1926. Thirty-eight years old and at
the height of his activity, his early
demise seems an almost irreparable
loss to the well-being of the school
and the community.
Mr. Scharr was chosen as the
instructor of Manual Training for
the old Technical High School in
1913. As the result of an expert
survey of the needs of the commu-
nity a few years later, it was decided
to build a Vocational High School,
and in this undertaking he became
the right hand of the Board of Edu-
cation. He planned and arranged
space and equipment for eight trade
courses for boys and several for
girls. Naturally he became the head
of the department on the completion
of the school, and later assumed the
added duties of Boys' Advisor. In
these capacities his intelligence,
gentle courtesy, and justice won for
him utmost respect and loyal friend-
ship of the students and teachers
alike. He was strong in organiza-
tion and the amount of detail he
handled quietly and efficiently was
extraordinary: nothing was ever too
much trouble for him to do if it
smoothed the pathway of a friend
or fellow worker.
His acheivements, characteristic
of the man, were not spectacular and
his power was more of the spirit
than of the flesh. His modest per-
sonality radiated as steadily and
dependably as the North Star, his
calmness i11 the midst of excitement
smoothed the troubled waters, while
his keen sense of humor saved the
situation when the boat rocked in a
sea of hysteria. Always practical
and constructive in his suggestions
it was a clarifying experience to coun-
sel with him and he was never too
disinterested nor too radical to get
the other fellow's point of view.
This latter quality made him pecu-
liarly fitted to advise boysg they
felt that he never tried to high-brow
them. but considered their problems
with genuine interest.
His race is rung he has kept the
faith. No monuments are erected to
his memory, but in the hearts of
meng the respect of his fellow citi-
zensg the loyal regard of his co-
workersg the love of his friends and
the young people guided into right
paths by' his precept and example.
To his children he left that greatest
of all heritages, the memory of a
devoted and honorable father. While
all count his passing a bitter loss.
through their sorrow are heard the
"Well done, thou good and faithful
servant: thou hast been faithful over
a few thingsg I will make thee ruler
over many things: enter, thou. into
the joy of thy Lord."

THE LOG OF THE CLASS CF 1926
It was the fourth day of Septem-
ber, nineteen twenty-two, a calm,
peaceful autumnal day, radiant with
the sunshine of hope, cheer, and joy-
ous promise, that the good ship Vir-
ginia High School stood at anchor at
the wharf of a new school year. This
same old ship had carried many
young passengers to safe harbors in
the Land of Great Wisdom, but sen--
timent never grew cold, and people
gazed in envy and wonder at the
large group of girls and boys who
happily stepped aboard. And why
should they not be happy, for were
they not sailing over unexplored wa-
ters in quest of the Fountain of Per-
When we had all taken our places,
we were assigned certain duties and
it fell my lot to write the log of the
voyage-the voyage that, even then.
we all realized was to be the happi-
est and most important of our lives.
As I strolled down the deck, I was
overjoyed to meet lone Gurskell, an
old companion of mine who had
sailed with me through the eighth
grade cruise among the Islands of
Smaller Learning. We were busy con-
gratulating ourselves on the mutual
pleasure of continued companionship
when we spied out another girl, who
had come from a neighboring city to
take passage with us. We peeped
over her shoulder as she entered her
name on our passenger list, and
were surprised to find that it was
Esther Bristol. We had heard of her
before, and also of her charming per-
sonality and cleverness, so while we
knew that she would not be over-
fond of study, we knew that she
would furnish us sufficient enter-
tainment during our despairing mo-
ments. Before we could say ten
words we were surrounded by all the
other who had decided to take the
trip, and soon every place was filled
-sf. -sv. .
N 'Q-Nels -
i . .gg-
-Nvw -...ua ......
and we were assured of a happy voy-
Naturally, we were very enthusi-
astic and eagerly asked Captain
Quickstad many questions as to the
incidents of our voyage, and its pro-
bable length, and were assured that
if we conducted ourselves well and
were diligent in our duties, we should
easily reach our destination in four
years. So with hopeful hearts and
sparkling eyes we bade our parents
and friends goodbye and waved from
the deck at those left behind in the
Grammar Grades, as we steamed
away from the wharf, actually em-
barked on our voyage of High School
As we were young and socially in-
clined, it did not take us long to be-
come acquainted with our fellow pas-
sengers, nor to feel at home with
Captain Quickstad, Pilot Duffield,
Stewardess Macfarlane, nor even
Porter Hanson. Neither did we have
any fear of shipwreck, for our crew,
Miss Halberg, Miss Gibson, Mr. Pott-
smith, Mr. Flagg, and the others
were the ablest of seamen. When a
few of us became seasick and were
tempted to throw up Algebra, Latin,
Science, and a few other disagree-
able dishes and to toss some of our
best belongings overboard, Steward-
ess Macfarlane asured us that we
would have to consume these indiges-
tables over and over until they were
perfectly assimilated, so we bravely
managed to hold them down.
When we first started on our voy
age, we noticed that the stream upon
which we started was comparatively
narrow and sheltered, but upon using
our field glasses we saw large bodies
of water ahead, which led us to in--
quire of our captain the significance
of the situation. He explained to us
that the Voyage of High School Life
would lead us, in reality, over four
seas, which were so closely connected
26? ggg... .,.....
Xxm-...,,,.M,,,,,.....-0-is ---'----- ' ' W--2
that they seemed but one, and thai
the first was called the Freshman
The usual intimacy of shipboard
soon sprang up among us and we
have been loyal shipmates ever since.
Before we realized it, we had at-
tained the farther end of the Fresh-
man Sea, and those of us who had
not failed to do all our duties thus
far on our trip, and in consequence,
had extra duties imposed upon us,
received our identification checks
from Miss Keck, our Purser.
It would take too long to read the
complete log of this eventful voyage,
although I shall never forget the
many delightful experiences, the in-
teresting lessons, the changes in the
passenger list along the way, the
parting with one of our shipmates,
and the meeting of another, and the
change, at the entrance of the Soph-
omore Sea of our Captain from N. J.
Quickstad to E. H. Bosshardt. But
above all, I shall remember the last
quarter of our journey, over the Sen-
ior Sea. As we neared the end of our
voyage, we grew very jubilant. The
events that shall never be erased
from my mind are: the lovely ban-
quet that was given us by the offi-
cers of the company, with the de-
lightful party following it, the pro-
gram the night before we landed.
the little paper that kept us posted
on all that went on and had gone be-
fore, the favorite dessert of all, Wool-
ley, and the replacing of Pilot Duf-
field by Pilot Bolcom. After all, it has
but little significance to those other
than us, the few who are still here to
land in the safe harbor of Com-
mencement Wharf. We must not
forget the honor due the passengers
that won the loving cup on our
Cruise up the Basketball Channel to
Tournament Isle. We must not forget
the loyalty to our class colors so val-
iantly flying at the masthead. We
must not divulge the secrets of our
shipmates. The most vital history of
any person or thing is never given
to the world, and so must it be with
the Class of 1926!
It has been a wonderful voyage,
and we have collected many souve--
nirs, always careful not to retain ex-
cess baggage, or to take with us any-
thing that would not be of service to
us on the yet greater Voyage of Real
Life, upon which we are tomorrow
to embark. We have not been met
with any gale strong enough to with-
hold us, though we have at times
been baffled by threatening tasks.
The tides of our averages have con--
tinued to ebb and flow, the waves of
mathematical problems have never
ceased their motion, the billows of
examination questions have some-
times tried their worst to overwhelm
us, but none has succeeded. We have
been able to obtain the necessary
passport at the entrance to each suc-
ceding sea, from the different Purs-
ers we have had, and have been able
to pay the price of it by good, hard
work. We have sympathized with
seasick passengers as they started on
their voyages, and have helped them
in every way possible . We have en-
joyed the successful experiences of
those who have gone to other shores.
Now we look at the larger, more
majestic ocean ahead of us, and feel
that our experience has fitted us to
withstand every storm, and to
weather any oppressing force with
no fear of disaster, saying with By-
ron, "Roll on, thou' deep and dark
blue ocean, roll! Ten thousand fleets
sweep over thee in vain!" But not
in vain the Class of 1926! We will
go on writing new logs of greater ad-
venture, of more wonderful discov-
ery, for while the voyage of High
School of life is at an end, the voy-
of Real Life is just now and here at
its triumphant Commencement.

THE WILL GF TI-IE CLASS OF 1926
Ladies and Gentlemen, Board of
Education, Superintendent, Teachers,
Upon behalf of my client, the Class
of 1926, of Virginia High School, of
the City of Virginia, State of Minn-
esota, U. S. A., I have called you to-
gether upon this solemn and serious
occasion to hear her last will and tes-
tament, and to receive from her dying
hand the few gifts she has to bestow
in her last moments. Leaving life
so rapidly, and finding so many
things of importance to be attended
to before the end should come, real-
izing that she would not have time
in which to cultivate her own
virtues, she did, collectively and
individually, deem it necessary to
distribute them herself to those who
need them m'ost. As a result of this
announcement a wild scene took place
amidst frantic pleading and scram-
bling for this or that long coveted
gloryg but she has tried to be just
and impartial in distributing, to
those who will use them wisely, the
gifts such as she has in her power
to bestow, the talents that have
served her so faithfully these four
years. These are her decisions,
arrived at through deliberate con-
sideration. Owing to the excited con-
dition of her brain, and the unusual
disturbance in its gray matter, she
begs me to state for her that possibly
she was mistaken in her inventory,
but such things as she has, she
hereby gives into your possesion,
praying that you will accept them as
a sacred trust from one who has

ument, as duly drawn up and sworn

THE LAFAYETTE BLISS
One of the chief events of the past
year is the establishment of a chap-
ter of the National High School
Honor Society in Virginia high school.
This society is similar to the Phi
Beta Kappa organization in college
the scholastic standing which deter-
mines the membership is about the
same in both societies. The national
constitution, to which our local con-
stitution must conform, states that
not more than fifteen percent of any
graduating class may be elected for
membership. Scholarship, character,
leadership, and service are the quali-
fications considered by the electors
in determining membership.
The members of Virginia's society
chose to call our chapter the Lafay-
ette Bliss Chapter, in honor of
Lafayette Bliss, who was the super-
intendent of the Virginia schools be-
tween the years 1904 and 1913. Mr.
Bliss stood for scholarship, charac-
ter and leadership-the very things
for which the Lafayette Bliss Chap-
The key which is presented to each
member, when he is elected into this
honored group, is a small gold charm
in the shape of an old-fashioned key.
lt has the name ol' the society on the
front, while on the reverse side the
student's initials are engraved.
To the school the membership in
the High School Honor Society
means a raising of the scholastic
standing, to the individual student,
it means a recognition of high at-
tainment in scholarship, leadership,
and character building. The students
of Virginia High are very fortunate
in having an opportunity to become
members of this nation-wide society.
Charter members Cchosen from
the January 1926 class! are: Tordis
Vatshaug, president, Eino Jyring,
vice presidentg Milton Anderson. sec-
retary, Marion Makela, Helmi Koiv-
isto, Ruth Risberg, and George Cu-
cich. Miss Edna Gieseking was ap-
pointed advisor. -
As a result of the election from
the June 1926 class, the following
are members: Tyyne Huttunen, Le-
land Darin, Paul Cundy, Paul Koch-
aver, Helen Gill, Eleanor Freeman,
Jennie Nissinen, Evelyn Moilan, Toi-
vo Wiitanen, Hilda Nelmark, Hazel
Johnson, Arthur Soronen.

"ADAM AND EVA"
"Adam and Eva" one of the best
Mid-Year Class plays ever produced
in the Virginia High School was pre-
sented on December eleventh by the
January class. Much of the credit
for the success of this production is
due Miss Kathryn Darke, under
whose competent leadership the play
was directed, this is especially true
when we consider the limited num-
ber from which she was forced to
pick her cast.
The theme of the play was woven
around the spoiled family of a rich
rubber manufacturer, James King,
played by Paul Lundmark. Because
he always complained about their
extravagance, the family, consisting
of his younger daughter, Eva, the
part taken by Goldie Finn, his older
daughter Julie, portrayed by Gladys
Wennen, her husband Clinton De
Witt, taken by Milton Anderson,
Horace Pilgrim, Mr. King's uncle,
played by Abe Shandeling, and his
sister-in-law, Abbie Packer, played
by Agnes Charlesworth, persuaded
their neighbor, Doctor Delamater,
played by Clifford Larson, one of
Eva's suitors, to send Mr. King off
on a three month trip. Mr.King de-
cided to go and leave his business
manager, Adam Smith, the part
taken by Vaino Ronkka, to take
charge of the family.
Of course the family objected and
treated Adam with disdain. Finally
in desperation he decided on a scheme
of telling the family that Mr. King
had lost all his money in a worthless
rubber stock. To drive them still
farther into poverty he stole their
jewels and suggested that they go
to a chicken farm in New Jersey.
Clinton, usually so faultlessly dress-
ed, became a salesman for a company
catering mostly to small-town Beau
Brummels who delight in the latest
"Oxford" pants and red neckwear.
Uncle Horace pestered the life out of
everyone until he bought insur-
ance from him. Before the calamity
Eva had become engaged to a noble
man from Scotland, taken by Arnold
Nelson, who went to the country a-
long with the family and gave riding
lessons for a living. By this time
Adam was hopelessly in love with
Eva but, because of her engagement,
he was unable to tell her of it. How-
ever, this was all straightened out
by Corinthia, a maid, played by
Jean Sherman, who refused to desert
the family. Andy gave up his in-
heritance and retreated as a gentle-
man, leaving room for Adam.
Mr. King came home only to find
that his family refused to be support-
ed by him any longer. Each part
was portrayed wonderfully well by
the members of the cast. The play
is one that will not soon slip our

his path of crime and returned
home followed by two of his cronies

Mrs. Bascom was in, settled down
to help raise peaches and to turn

Virginia Wins One First, One Second, and Two Thirds
in State Music Contest.
Our local boys' glee club won first
place in competition with the other
glee clubs of the range at the district
contest at Chisholm, April 30. Be-
cause of their victory they were pre-
sented with a bronze shield emblem-
atic of the honor. The mixed chorus
won first place at the same contest,
and the girls' glee club, second hon-
ors. As Virginia gained the most
points in the contest, we were pre-

The boys' glee club and the mixed
chorus represented the range district
in the state contest at the University
of Minnesota, May 13 to 15. Both the
boys' glee club and the mixed chorus
were awarded third places, bowing
only to Minneapolis and St. Paul
high. This trip to the cities is all
that a wide-awake boy or girl could
long for. They were treated in a fit-
ting manner and an enjoyable time
was shown them. It was but another
form of education and we certainly
do learn through travel. The con-
testants from northern Minnesota
had a special train from Duluth to
the Twin Cities and on their return.
It is rumored that many of the mem-
bers, who made their first trip to the
cities, have not yet recovered from
the shock of the surprises that greet-
ed their eyes.
As organizations it can be truth-
fully said that the glee clubs are two
of the liveliest groups in the school.
During their absence it seemed that
the heart of the school was lacking.

VIRGINIA SUCCESSFUL IN
Virginia High School has just com-
pleted a very successful season in
public speaking, winning in several
contests. Over fifty aspiring can-
didates answered Miss Darke's call
for material at the beginning of the
year. Through a series of elimin-
ations, the numbers were greatly re-
duced until the local speaking contest
was held on January 16th. At that
time Ione Gurskell, with her humor-
ous reading, "The Wedding," won
over her rival, Mary Mokovich.
Reading her "Hum0resque," in a
fitting manner, Settima Cannosa was
given first place in the declamatory
contest. Irma Martin with "Peter
and the Angels" and Josephine
Krizer, reading "The Fleet Goes By,"
placed second and third respectively.
Clarence Westerlund was awarded
first place in the oratorical field with
his reading, "The American Spirit."
He was closely followed in the point
column by David Farrington with
"The Triumph of Peace" and Gordon
Bowers with "The Heritage of Noble
Lives." Clarence Westerlund and

THE SENIORS ON PARADE
NEW ASSEMBLY PLAN
A new method of arranging for
assemblies has been placed in opera-
tion during the past year, a plan
which has proved very successful,
that of student control. Previous to
this, the entire responsibility of ral-
lies fell on the shoulders of the cheer
leaders. During this past year, dif-
ferent school groups and organiza-
tions were assigned a certain assem-
bly to take charge of, for which they
planned several weeks. With the
competitive spirit, these meetings
grew better and better. The students
became eager and awaited them anx-
iously. These entertainments arose
to the heights of popularity in the
pre-tournament pep rallies, one of
which was held in the gymnasium, a
room heretofore unthought of for
As a fitting climax to this rise in
school spirit, a monstrous tourna-
ment parade, with almost a hundred
per cent turnout, was held. This
proved an overwhelming success.

Virginia Gridclers End Successful Season. Win
Three Cut of Six Attempts. Hard
The Virginia High School football
eleven ended one of the most suc-
cessful seasons in years. L. G.
Hurst, the new pigskin mentor, was
confronted with numerous obstacles
in selecting a team to represent the
school because of injuries to several
regulars of the squad. The whole left
side of the line was lost through these
Watson, giant tackler, tore several
ligaments in his knee, which forced
him out of actual competition for the
remainder of the season. "Moose"
Mokovitch,stellarguard and all range
prospect, was lost to the team in the
Rochester game, in which, because of
lime used in marking the field, he
lost the sight of his eye. "Rabs"
Lenci, left end and third member of
the injured list, broke his arm in
scrimmage, forcing Coach Hurst to
find a new man to replace him.
At the beginning of the season
sixty prospective candidates reported
for practice, which was being held at
the Oliver Athletic Park. After three
weeks of hard workouts the squad
dwindled down, until twenty-five
men remained. From this group the
team was selected to represent the
school throughout the' season.
Virginia tackled Ely in the opening
game of the season, winning 21-0.
The following week the strong orange
and black team ,of Gilbert invaded
the realms but were turned back with
a 3-0 defeat, which was attributed
to a mere drop kick. The third game
was to find Virginia tangling cleats
with Eveleth but due to a misunder-
standing of schools, the Rochester
team was brought to Virginia in
place of the Hilltoppers. The Mayo
city school was represented by the
strongest team in its history. The
locals failed to score on two occa-
sions after advancing the ball to the
1 yard line. The game, as a result,
ended 3-0 in the medicalists favor.
The following week Virginia played
at Aurora, where a heavy team won
the game by upsetting the newspaper
dope. In the last out-of-town contest,
the Queen City squad triumphed over
the Biwabik team by a 40-3 score.
The Blue and White lost their home
coming game to their ancient rivals
from Hibbing by a 2-0 count. The
following constituted the 1926 team:
Olivanti and Kochaver, ends, Kishel
and Gianlorenzi, tackles ,Johnson and
Doig, guardsgKonop, center and cap-
taing Abramson, quarter backg Hill
and Reese, half backs, Dasovich,

BASKETBALL SEASON 1925-Z6
Blue and White Win Ten Games.
The basketball prospects of the
Virginia high school were exceedingly
bright when the new basketball
coach, L. G. Hurst, issued a call for
candidates. Out of last season's
district championship team Hill, Wat-
son, and Konop returned to form the
nuceleus for the 1926 team. About
twenty-five candidates for the team
reported for practice with the re-
gulars. Abramson, a first string
man of last season, earned a regular
berth as a guard. Jaksha, Hill's
running mate, was not discovered
until just before the tournament
play. Out of Virginia's team Watson
and Abramson were selected on the
All-Range teams by the majority of
the critics. Hill was chosen on the
second team, although last year he
was placed with the first five.
Virginia's first out of town game
was against the strong Aurora team
and Virginia was nosed out in a close
The next contest was an easy win
over the Ely High school. The game
was played on the spacious floor of
the Vermillion Rangers and the score

seasonal defeat from Duluth Central

The locals hit their stride in the
first home game by taking Hibbing
into camp by a 20-12 count.

passing won over Gilbert and became

nament in March. The final score of
this game was 20-7.
In the sixth game the Blue and

The next basketball game was a
walkaway for Virginia who won from
Biwabik 26-11. The score does not
indicate how easily the visitors were
outplayed. Hurst sent in his entire
second team, the last half.
By defeating Gilbert on their own
floor Virginia accomplished an al-
most impossible feat. This was the
second defeat administered to an
Orange and Black team by Virginia
this season. The final sum up was
17 for Virginia and 16 for the
Duluth's second game with thc
Virginias e n d e d unsuccessfully
when they lost 21-16. The win for
Virginia was another avenged win as
the Duluthians had held a previous
victory over Virginia.
The following week Virginia was
off to a fiying start by winning two
games of the district tournament.
The wins were over Biwabik and Mt.
Iron by the same score, 22-11. ln
these two games the locals failed tc
play up to standard and they entered
the finals against Gilbert, a team
whom they had already defeated
twice. Up to now the Hurst men
had won nine straight games and
were confident of going through the
district unmolested. Before 3000
spectators in the final game of re-
gion II, district 7, the Virginia High
School lost a decidedly off color game
by a humilating score of 24-15. This
was considered one of the biggest
dope upests of the 1926 playing sea-
Virginia will suffer greatly as Il
result of the graduation of three of
the mainstays of the team, namely:
Captain Watson, who was one of the
stellar defense men of the cage team.
The captain played a steady, consist-
ent game all season but seasonal
worries completely upset him during
the tournament play. Konop, our
fighting center, also graduates and
his services will be greatly missed,
especially on defense. Last season
Charlie played guard but was shift-
ed to center this year to fill the posi-
tion left vacant by the graduation of
Ed. Johnson, all district center of the
team that won the district champion-
ship in 1925. Izzy Abramson worked
up form a substitute into one of
Virginia's finest players. Izzy start-
ed the season at center but changed
to the guard position with which he
finished the term. He was placed on
several all-district teams by many of
the coaches in picking their selec-
tions for the mythical five. Jack Ser-
aphine, although he did not play of--
ten enough to show his wares, was
one of Virginia's best bets as a for-
ward and his playing and spectacu-
lar ball handling will be sorely missed
in the lineup next season.
Coach Hurst must be given consid-
erable credit for developing a highly
successful team which won 10 games
and lost but three. Coach L. G.
Hurst came to Virginia from North
Dakota where he left behind him an
enviable record. If anyone felt the
loss of a district tournament cham-
pionship when the team should have
won, it was he. If L. G. returns next
season, we hope he has better suc-
cess and more of it.
Virginia ended the season with
274 points for themselves against
194 for their oponents. In this total
were three losses. The locals aver-
aged 21 1-13 points a game, while
the visitors averaged 14 2-13. This
is considered very fine and goes to
show the immense scoring power
possessed by the Blue and White the
past basketball season.

The boys' swimming team, under
the care of Coach Harry Boardman,
concluded a successful season of
swimming triumphs by Winning the
state championship water crown in
a meet held at Biwabik April 10. This
is the second succesive season that
the Blue and White swimmers have
turned the trick.
Although several of the regulars
pass out of the limelight by gradua-
tion in June, Virginia High School
will be again represented by a strong
aquatic squad next year. Among the
graduates will be found Captain
Johnson, Aalto, Richard Johnson,
and Gillespieg the passing of these
men will greatly hinder the cham-
pionship possibilities when the next
state meet rolls around.
Coach Boardman has a fine array
of Junior High School talent for his
team and with a little practice they
should be able to fill the holes left
by the four graduating veterans.
The 100 yard back stroke will be
greatly affected as both Captain
Johnson and Eino Aalto leave in
quest of new fields. Maki is the only
backstroke possibility remaining.
Virginia will be strong in the 100
yard free style next year, as Gordon

HOCKEY REVIEW, SEASCN 1925-1926
Coach Eide Has Successful Season, Two Men Lost
The Virginia High School stick
wielders turned in their equipment
after enjoying the benefits of a fine
hockey season. After doing so they
were given an opportunity to glance
back at the havoc they had wrought
through one of Virginia's successful
The blue and white this season
was represented by a scrappy bunch
which made a very impressive rec-
ord. At the beginning of the season
about twenty-five candidates report-
ed to O. J. Eide, the new hockey
coach. After a process of elimina-
tion and tryouts, the team was
picked from the following: Christ-
iansen, Reese, La Pointe, Tampte,
Onkka, Kelly, Toman, Keranen, Ran-
ta, Kearney, Weiss, and Gianlorenzi.
The season was hardly under way
when obstacles arose to thwart the
team's success. Nelson, star goalie,
graduated at mid year and Garvey,
last year's sensation, was declared
ineligible because of scholastic rat-

ings. Finally Onkka was discovered
and proved to be a fine guardian of
The locals played their first game
against Hibbing Junior College and
outplaying their opponents succeeded
in winning by a 3-2 score.
The next game was against the
strong University of Wisconsin hock-
ey team who nosed out the Queen
City youngsters by a 3-2 score after
forty-five minutes of intense skating
and puck exchanging. Chamberlain,
former V. H. S. star, was the cause
of Virginia's defeat when in the last
few minutes of play he made a goal
In a scrimmage game the high
school warriors took the Junior Col-
legians of Virginia into camp by
smothering them under a 20-0 heap.
Virginia's first real battle and
defeat came at the hands of the
strong Duluth Central team. The
Eide men seemed to have an off
night and were on the short end of
a 6-2 score before the tussle came
to an end.
The following week the high
school pucksters skated all over the
Hibbing team and were given an un-
disputed verdict of a 5-2 count.
The puck chasers played their first
out-of-town contest at Chisholm and
kept up such a furious pace that the
defenders were given a terrible beat-
ing of fifteen goals to one. This, it
is believed, was the highest score run
up by any team in the entire state
for the past season.
Virginia's return encounter with
Duluth was played at the Zenith City
.,....... 1.V..-.-.k,-.,,,.g519s5,Neem:.s wf..::,... .-
and there the blue and white after
outplaying their opponents the last
two periods lost a heart breaking
game by a score of 1-0.
Coach Eide's terrors played their
first game at Hibbing against the
strong high school team there. The
Virginians were forced to extend
themselves to win 3-2.
The final out-of-town contest
which concluded the season was
played with the Hibbing Junior Col-
lege at the huge skating arena at
the richest village. The high school
for the second consecutive time
turned the villagers down by tally-
ing 5 goals to 1.
The hockey team of the 1925-26
season probably scored more points
than any team that has previously
represented the school. H. Reese,
sturdy center, and "Lolly" Christian-
son, diminutive wing man, were the
high scorers of the year, but they
will be lost to the team next season
because of graduation. Kelly, a fresh-
man, played a fine defensive game
all season and through his work, the
team was able to pile up such scores
as it did. 'Duck" LaPointe and Tamp-
te, forming the second wall of de-
fense, were a pair that seldom failed
to stop the opposition. Tampte has
one year of competition left while
"Ducky" the most colorful player of
the season, has three years left. Hon-
orable mention must be given the
spares, namely Keranen, Kearney,
Gianlorenzi, Weiss, and Ranta. It
was through their honest efforts that
they aided the team in the form of
workouts and scrimmages.

The Knights of the Flying Fliver
This is the lay of the student gay
Who drives a flying fliver,
No knight of old was half so bold,
Or such a reckless liver.
He spins the crank, he gives a yank
Upon the little lever:
Then turns the curves with sickening
To get there now or never.
He has no horn, his top is torn,
His fenders all go flopping,
His lights are dead, both white and
And yet he knows no stopping.
With cut-out wide, the countryside,
He goes careening over:
And all he meets beat quick retreat,
For saftey to the clover.
When nights grow dark he likes to
Some distance from the highway:
Beneath the moon with her to spoon,
Beside some quiet by-way.
Now let's be frank, his vacuum tank
Beneath the hood is hidden,
And yet his head, by some 'tis said,
Of everything is ridden.
