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 Master's words: "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." ilu fllllmnnxg nf Mzuueg li Svrlmn E1 Ln as lu trod that dm to God 90 uallad hc from lm brrth Slmplgmss Q mlm ss and Mm mrrth BOARD OF EDUCATION Virginia, Minnesota I In 1-ry Iihnivr, 1'h:1irm:m HAZEL R.

Nb l .X N s - s.mff:::.:..1 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- fect Understanding? 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 iiiixifiiiigf 19 ass... St:-ss R9 -sf. -sv. . 5- hs, ----- N 'Q-Nels - . .-. su x i . .gg- -Nvw -...ua ...... E and we were assured of a happy voy- age. 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 Life. 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 ,,.,...-w-I 26? ggg... .,..... Xxm-...,,,.M,,,,,.....-0-is ---'----- ' ' W--2 that they seemed but one, and thai the first was called the Freshman Sea. 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 !"""""'-.-N... 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. ff. ......,,.,... ------- L .

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 gone before. Listen, then, while I read the doc- ument, as duly drawn up and sworn to: We the Class of 1926, do hereby make and publish this, our last will and testament, revoking all former wills made in rash moments. Item 1: To our dear school board we give and bequeath the right to following ours. Item 2: To our beloved Superin- tendent, Mr. Bolcom, we give and bequeath our sincerest affection and a mortgage on our future. Item 3: To the Faculty We give and bequeath the amazing knowledge and information furnished them in our various test papers. Item 4: To the 12 B's we give and bequeath our Wooley's-may they enjoy them just as we did. Item 5: The following seem but trifles, but they were given in all good faith and hope that they will be cherished by those receiving them as they were by those bequeathing them. I, Daniel Dasovich, ,bequeath to Teto Gianlorenzi the presidency of the Class of 1927. I, Helen McKechnie, will to Harriet Thurston my ability to flirt. I, Sibyl Riddell, bequeath to Vir- ginia Code my ability to chew gum. fHowever, Virginia, do not let Miss Runnels catch you.D I, Howard Harvey, bequeath to Frank Jaminski my bashfulness around the girls.

LAFAYETTE BLISS THE LAFAYETTE BLISS CHAPTER 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- ter stands. 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.

W..-Www at "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 minds. "TURN TO THE RIGHT" "Turn to the Right," a comedy in a prologue and three acts by W. Smith and J. Hazzard, was presen- ted by the June Class of 1926 on Friday, May 7th. The plot concer- ned a young lad, Joe Bascom, wh.: was one of a party of crooks in a large city. He decided to foresake his path of crime and returned home followed by two of his cronies Muggs and Gilly. Mrs. Bascom with her daughter was found rais- ing peaches and making jam for at living. The three men, after seeing the poor state of affairs Mrs. Bascom was in, settled down to help raise peaches and to turn to the right. The play ended hap- pily with three clever romances completing the plot. The cast of characters was as followes: Joe Bascom, Howard Harvey, Muggs, Fred Tomang Gilly, Dan Dasovichg Deacon Tillinger, Arthur Soroneng Sam Martin, Leland Darin Lester Morgan, Ben Finng Callahan Lawrence Christianseng Isador, Ben Finn, An old tailor, Eino Aaltog Mrs. Bascom, Elva Johnson, Elsie Tillinger, Hazel Johnsong Betty Bascom, Helen McKechnieg Jessie Strong, Mathilda Elliot. .s 's it ' A "gil . di-,,, sw-..,,.,.,.....,..w---'R 1 Q.. .hfigs lg 1 Jig? .

Both girls attained remarkably high averages. As a result of their victories, both girls entered the state contest held at the Faculty Play The high school pedagogues took a night off on April 29th, for that was the date of "Dulcy", that memor- able play. It was the night Miss Miller forgot she was a sedate English teacher to take the part of Dulcy herself, that Mr. Mcllvenna was in his prime as Mr. Forbes, a grouchy old manufacturer, that Mr. Nelson forgot the farm and listened to Dulcy's prattle, that Mr. Brown left his laboratory to become once again University of Minnesota, May first, however, neither of the girls was successful in placing, although each had a percentage of ninety-nine. Miss Smith, our advanced typing and shorthand teacher, must be congrat- ulated upon the success of the local girls, whom she coached for the con- test. Won Praise a playful youth, that Miss Healy left the pool to become Mr. McIlvenna's wife for the night Qfor better or for worsej, that Mr. Lampe wrote some- thing worth while, that Mr. Raps was silent, that Mr. Bosshardt was a lawyer, that Miss Hollingshead took orders as a maid, that Miss Diamond vamped them all, and that Mr. Taylor was a little off.

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- sented with a bronze plate which is awarded each year to the school win- ning the most points in the district meet. 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. X N - FE.

Virginia entered many contests and was rated high in all of them. A team composed of Carl Borgeson, Ray Westby, and Louis Tuomi went to the North East Experimental Station at Duluth where they entered both the Dairy and the Livestock Judging contest. Virginia took first place in the Guernsey judgingg Ray Westby made the most points. In the Live- stock Judging, the Virginia team placed second, with Louis Tuomi and Ray Westby standing third and sixth respectively, in the individual mark- ings. Virginia's potato bugs, T 0 i v o Wiitanen and Ray Westby, entered the Potato Judging contest at the Annual Biwabik "Spud" show. Vir- ginia was rated second while Toivo carried off high point honors. This same pair entered the poultry contest at Hibbing, Where they placed sec- ond. Much of the credit for these brilliant showings goes to Mr. Nelson, our agricultural teacher, who has taught and coached the entries in all the contests. E 1 ESE E N E 5 Kim?

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 Leland Darin were selected as Virg- inia's representatives in the discuss- ion contests. Clarence and Leland were the first speakers to carry Virginia's colors into these contests with range schools. Leland was awarded first place in the discussion at Coleraine. As a result of' their range victories both boys competed in the state con- test at St. Paul,but neither of our re- presentatives were successful in plac- ing there. Both girls represented the Queen City at the district contest in Chisholm. Ione and Settima were given first honors but Settima was disqualified for exceeding the time limit. As a result of her district victory,Ione was entered in the Duluth regional con- test where she was awarded third place. Katherine Bergeson, reading "Bud- dy and Waffles," won the district Junior High School Declamatory Contest. There was no state contest. E. T. Duffield Goes to New York. During the past year E. T. Duf- field, Superintendent of the 'Virginia schools for the past five years, re- signed his local position to accept an offer from the Albert Teachers' Agency of New York City. W. G.

Coming here unacquainted with surround- ings, Mr. Bolcom has taken hold oi' the reins in a systematic and pleas- ing way. We, the student body, wish him success.

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 this purpose. 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. Headed by Dan Dasovich, the mar- shall of the day, and the high school JNMNW Ng , . W... .... band, it stretched six blocks long, with gayly dressed students. The June Class of '26 was awarded first place by a unanimous decision of the judges. These upper classmen formed a charming sight as they marched along in their pretty blue and white costumes, headed by their little float, a car completely covered with crepe to resemble a large insect as it crawled along the street. The June Class of '27 was award- ed second place with their clever Hoat and red and white outfits. Mr. Bosshardt and Mr. Hurst deserve a great deal of credit for the interest and zeal they have displayed. in these assemblies. Coach Hursts brilliant acrobats featured many of the assembly programs to the pleas- ure of all. We sincerely hope that the work will carry on in an increased degree during the coming years and with its always rising school spirit, Virginia High School will gain a country-wide reputation.

Win Three Cut of Six Attempts. Hard Luck lnterferes. 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 mishaps. 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, full back. -MM.. ,....... ...

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 24-28 battle 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 ended 20-12. Virginia suffered their second seasonal defeat from Duluth Central by a 24-14 score. Virginia was com- pletely outclassed in the small Zenith City gym. The locals hit their stride in the first home game by taking Hibbing into camp by a 20-12 count. In the next clash Gilbert journeyed to Virginia favored to win. The locals by some stellar guarding and passing won over Gilbert and became . -.,,,.

The final score of this game was 20-7. In the sixth game the Blue and White again won from their rival, Hibbing. Virginia's stellar defense was impenetrable and the losers suc- ceeeed in making 12 points to our 25. The Hurstmen showed their real superiority over the teams or the district by defeating Aurora 26-11 and thereby avenging an early season defeat. 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 Michael clan. 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- SOI1. 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. ?"""'---.. ....... .,. ...-w"""X ..,.,++"'i 'Q 1' is S z S... .xxxx - .. .N,, - xxx,Qx .. .

In the dives Virginia has an all state posibility in Gene-- vieve McCabe. Lorraine Field and Bernice Johnson will break in for their share of scoring if everything goes according to Hoyle.

SWlMMlNG REVIEW 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.

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 athletic seasons. 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- - sv" X: 1. , ...... -fi. . sf , it . i' "i ses, R , i':.'Nf5l Y xxx vm...-Q 'E ,iss S .,,,,,,WMN WMNJQ N....wk--N----i""" .a.......u.m .,... .... , N H H .. . .. ,.

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 unassisted. 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 Sm., N .,....... 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. 'NNu.,,.,,,,,...nH"' 'NN' as N Y N c. E s 1: z E -E -i PE 'a .N , ..h.. ,, ,,,Q..

He spins the crank, he gives a yank Upon the little lever: Then turns the curves with sickening swerve, 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 red: 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 park Some distance from the highway: Beneath the moon with her to spoon, Beside some quiet by-way.
