Hurley's touchdown came in the final frame, but too bad. The extra point went wide of the goal-posts. Wakefield was still on the safe side. thriller. It was a Wakefield It was a sunny autumn day and a capacity crowd enjoyed the game. Ashland There It might have been a warm night for the Ashland fans but it certainly was quite uncomfortable for ours. And who wouldn't be down-hearted? Wakefield had the game in the bag. Only a few more minutes left would have looked like a tie game. Then the tables turned. A pass was intercepted and run back for an Ashland touchdown. Tears in the eyes of the boys who played showed hard defeat. They vowed that they would take it out on the Park Falls crew. Although our boys out- played Ashland, Lady Luck wasn't on their side. It was just another one of those Wakefield heartbreakers. Park Falls There 'It's the hungry dog that catches the rabbit,' said Coach entered a little restaurant. The boys soon discovered what he Poached egg on toast and a little fruit salad was all they had Just before the half the boys found themselves on the long end a touchdown and a conversion.

Coach Jordan substituted freely and touchdowns were abundant. Due to the coming Ironwood game the team was instructed not to use any trick plays until necessary. A fair Wakefield crowd saw the game as well as a few Ironwood scouts. The game was one-sided and all the breaks seemed to come to the local boys. The end of the game found Wakefield carrying 46 points, while Washburn didn't garner any. All the boys on the squad saw action Castle Guards. The first five minutes of Ironwood Here ' It looked as if the boys just couldn't get started when Ironwood invaded our field. Ironwood scored a touchdown in the first quarter and in every quarter after. Wakefield's lone touchdown came in the last quarter. The team's late start shat- tered hopes cf a Cardinal victory. A large crowd saw the game, both bands performed, and the drill team gave an exhibition on the field at the half.

Mr. Gowe first taught in ' the Junior High building and now is the Natural Science instructor in the senior high school. He coaches six man football and junior high basketball. Six-man football has just been introduced in Wakefield re- cently. A few rules change the game from regular eleven man football. This year the team has won its two games that it has played against Erwin. The scores are 21 - 20, and 37 - 6. The boys playing six-man football will become our high school grid players in the future years to come. TH ECHO 1941 Mr. Fred Trewyn was graduated from Whitewater State Teachers College. Mr. Trewyn was an active sportsman in college, playing three years of football, basket- ball, and tennis. At present he is our head basketball coach and teaches subjects in the Commer- cial Department. Mr. Trewyn The Wakefield High School Basketball Team got off to a good start this year but did not finish the season as was expected by the local fans. Probably one of the causes of the slump was the handicap of a few players being on the sick list during the season. However many of the games were decided by one or a few points. The team this past season won five of its games while dropping nine. In the Michigan-Wisconsin Conference they placed third with Hurley. Through graduation Coach Trewyn will miss the services of seven seniors. All the members of the WA' squad will receive letters this June. We hope to have an improved team next year.

A field goal and quarter rally gave Wakefield a 21 - 19 decision Stambaggg Here It was just an 'off' night for the local lads and the Hilltoppers went back with a 20 - 15 victory. It was a cleanly played game from start to finish. How- ever Wakefield was handicapped by missing too many of their sure scoring goals. This was the first set-back for the locals. You can't always tell when its opponents.

The Cards were short two points and - 20. Ashland There football game was just too good when Wakefield swamped the Purgolds by an overwhelming score of 41 - 24. Wakefield took the lead throughout the whole game and never were in danger until the final whistle. Bessemer There Many Wakefield and Bessemer fans witnessed one of the finest games played this year. The game was nip and tuck throughout the four quarters. The end of the game found the score at 25 all. In the three minute overtime each team gar- nered three points and again the score was tied. It was too bad howeverg the Michigan point system handicapped the locals and Bessemer won 27 - 26. It looked as if the boys Hurley Here played a better brand of ball when they met the midgets on the local floor. The game was cleanly fought and fast. However the game wasn't so easily won, as Hurley's threat had the fans on the edge of their seats throughout the game. Both teams played good ball but the Cards managed to drop through a few more field goals than Hurley and won by 28 - 24. The Wakefield fans would almost lost hope at the half when the score back strong in the second half and staged a Ironwood There see Wakefield take this one. They board read 20 - 6. The Cards came thrilling rally. The time left to have liked to play in the ball game wasn't enough and the Red Devils took a 54 - 51 decision. THE EQH0 1941 DePadua There The locals really went on a losing spree as the DePadua High School tem put on the steam and sent the Cards back home with a 25 - 17 story. The team just couldn't click and the opponents strong defense was a wrench in the Wakefield machinery. Ashland Here With the team back on its own floor Wakefield fans were quite certain of a Cardinal victory, as the locals held a decision over the Purgolds at Ashland. How- ever Ashland came out on the floor fighting and led at the half. The end of the game saw Ashland with 40 points to Wakefield's 54. It was the first conference victory for Ashland. Iron River There The Cardinals couldn't pull themselves out of the losing column and received a 31 - 28 setback. The Cards played a wonderful game but the Redmen forged ahead and collected another well-earned victory. The gym, like DePadua's was small, and hindered our players. A handful of Wakefield fans saw the game. Bessemer Here Probably one of the biggest crowds this year saw the Speed Boys take the Cardi nals into camp with a fine score of 28 - 25. The game was well-played, the lead exchanging many times. The 'B' team won an overtime victory in the preliminary and the Girls Drill Team performed at the half of the 'A' game. Lake Linden Here In a slow, poorly played game the Wakefield Cardinals took Lake Linden on the home court by a score of 29 - 22. The Cards were ahead at every quarter mark and never were in danger of the Lakes coming out in front. It was the last home game for the Cards and a capacity crowd saw the game. Ishpeming There The Wakefield Cardinals traveled to Ishpeming to conclude their season only to return with a 26 - 25 defeat. Ishpeming started off fast and held a comfortable lead until Wakefield took the reins and came within a point or two from catching up. Ishpeming finally rallied to win the game. The Wakefield 'B' team defeated Iron Belt at Iron Belt.

Wakefield High School Track Team Due to the early breakup this year Coach Ma11's thinclads were able to get out of doors sooner than was expected. The first track meet will be held on May the 10th, an invitational meet at Wakefield. The track team has been getting most of its points in the field events in past track meets. They were not so successful in the dashes, in which the team must win some places in this year to have a first place team. Coach Mall has eight letter men to work around this year. They are Eugene Danielson, Ernest Decur, Tom Elliott, John Evanoff, Tauno Jarvinen, Wilbert Pikka, Forrest Rosendahl, and Joe Sanchez. There are other prospects out of which may come a successful track team. Hr. Louis Mall was graduated from Northern Teachers College. During his stay at college he went . out for every sport. However, he was a better dramatist than an athlete and took part in some plays. Mr. Mall is Wakefield's physical education teacher and is the head coach of the track team.

THE ECHO 1941 SENIOR CLASS PLAY CAST The Seniors chose nJune Madn as their presentation to demonstrate their dramatic ability. nJune Madn is a very modern and down-to-earth play which centers around a few days in the life of a fifteen-year-old girl, Penny Wood, during the month of June. Until cosmopolite Roger Van Vleck comes to spend a week-end at the Wood home with Pen- ny's uncle, Mervyn Roberts, boys are nothing more than companions to her. Roger has a perfect nlinen for which Penny falls, hook, line, and sinker. Penny's rival is Julie Harris, nChuck'sn sister. Dr. Wood has a great deal of trouble trying to write a speech. HChucku Harris has a lot of trouble with his glider to which his father ob- jects. Thirteen-year-old Milly Lou is the neighborhood brat and not a bad Sherlock Holmes.

CLASS HISTORY ' It all started back in 1937, when we became nFreshies.W were we just green Freshmen? Oh, no! Our class began its extraordinary history that very first day, August SO. That year we elected Arleene Niemi to the office of president, Bernhardt Maki, vice president, and Bill Trezise, secretary-treasurer. We sponsored an all- school dance and had a very successful class party. We remember nTorchy,' WWasha,n and nDuffyn as the life of that party. On August 29, 1958, we entered high school as nSilly Sophomores.n That year g Tauno Jarvinen as president, Bob Kastelnak as vice president, and Adolph C. Bugnl as secretary-treasurer acted as the guiding genius of the class of '41, Anxious to prove that we were not entirely usilly,W we sponsored an all-school dance. This proved our worth, because it was a total success. When school closed, we were looking earnestly ahead to our Junior year. On September 5, 1959, we started the third year of our high school careers. Tauno Jarvinen had shown that he was a capable president and so we once more put him at the head of our class. Serving under him were John Williams as vice president, Rita Brack- et as secretary, and Jeanne Bruno as treasurer. Early in the year we started plans for gpg prom! Ye sponsored a dance, sold candy at basketball games and sponsored a doughnut sale as money-raising events. The theme of the annual promenade was nCarn1val.u It was a success! Of course, there were such important events as exams, the Senior class play and the Hop, but for us, the Prom began and closed the year. With falling leaves and fall winds, with our beloved prom just a memory and with visions of the class play, class day and graduation night in our heads, we began our lest year on September 9, or should have started it then, but because of Polio we started on the 16th. As this is being written, they are still visions, but are rapidly becoming realities. Somehow or other, we do not feel so much anxiety for the complet- ion of our four glorious high school years. Our pictures have already made it clear that we aren't so good looking after all. We have chosen our colors, forest green and Silver, our motto is, Uwe have crossed many ponds, but the ocean lies ahead of us:N the class flower is the gsrdenia. The football dance sponsored by our class, at the close of the football season, was another item written under the column headed WSuc- cess.N William Keskey, president, Roger Randall, vice president, Chester Deour, se- cretary, and Helen Jolllffe, treasurer, have lived up to our expectations of them and have been successful officers. Carrying on for W. H. S. in the gym and on the field, our class was represented byt'D1zzy,n WLeezy,' WBaker,u NStash,W HSh1nd1a,' WJohnny,u and Tommy, all-star ath- e es. On April 29, the curtain rose on our class clay, nJune Mad,W and on June 19, the curtain will fall on that grand class of 1941. ' THE ECHO 1941 CLASS PROPHESY A look into the future--we paid a visit to an Astrology Class the other day and that visit disclosed to us what grand glorious things our classmates, the class of '41 will be doing in 1951. .
