Senior Class History
In the fall of 1943, ten students signed aboard the H Viking" for a four year cruise on
the sea of education. Dot, captain of the maiden voyage, led the crew through waters
both stormy and calm, but failed to save Leslie Mcliung, Margaret Anderson, James
Aasness, and Thelma Moe who floundered and sank. At the port of Utopia, the crew dis-
embarked for a three months shore leave. Three months later only six-crew-men show-
ed up for the second sailing. Jean Ustrud left the crew to sail for lVebster, and Gerald
Haugen climbed on deck at Lily. The captain, Phyllis, led them through very calm water
and finally, at the end of nine months, took another well-earned shore-leave, this time
at Honolulu. When the voyage again resumed, five of the original crewmen were
back. Vera Johnson had signed off at Florence during vacation, but Herbert Aasness
floated downstream from Bradley to take her place. Dorothy was back to take the place
Wlieii the last vacation before the end of the journey was over, only four crewmen
returned to finish the trip. Dorothy Hanson, Mayme Gulbraa, and Arlene Fogel decided
to sail another sea, the sea of matrimony. That left Phyllis Urevig, Gerald Haugen, Her-
bert Aasness, and Ruby Nelson, who was picked up from a life raft near Cogswell, North
The senior year was crowded with activities. During April, the crew members as-
sisted the Juniors in presenting a play, on May 2, they sailed to Aberdeen for an inside
look at college life, on a later date in May, they anchored at the Black Hills for their
skip day, May 25th was the date sct for Baccalaureate, and on Commencement night,
May 28th, they left the good ship UViking" with many a backward glance and tearful
eye, each one admitting that this four year journey is filled with many happy memories.
As we sail along the sea of life we carry
with us memories of the past. Today we
think of the old school days and wonder
what the class of 4447" is doing, so we de-
cided to go visiting.
Cruising along we see the large and Well
developed farm of Gerald Haugen. Gerald
is out by the mailbox and so we stop and
have a talk with him. VVhile talking to
him, he informs us that Herbert is teaching
school a short distance a.way. As we enter
the doorway of the school house we find
Herbie teaching his pupils how to blow soap
Instead of disturbing him, we carry on
our journey. Our next stop is the home of
Phyllis Urevig, who is very happly with her
husband and family. As we visit with her.
she tells us that Ruby is a nurse and is ful-
filling her ambition.
Now with our memory refreshed we say
"My what ten years will do.'l
We, the four seniors of the class of 1947,
being of unsound mind, do hereby declare
this to be our last will and testament:
l, Jerry Haugen, do bequeath to Harlan
my basket making ability for a future
championship team and also my job as
"Clipper" editor to Arvid.
I, Ruby Nelson, do bequeath my writing
ability to Gaylord and Norris in hopes they
may someday turn in a class poem. I also
wish to leave my punctuality to Edith Moss.
'l, Herbie Aasness, do bequeath my sense
of humor Cfor my own jokesj to Marion and
all my used. candy wrappers to Beverly.
I, Phyllis Urevig wish to leave my study
habits to Reuben Cmay it improve the fresh-
man classl and my cheerleading position to

ln the fall of 1944, the Viking: lowered its gaiig plank and eight First
Class Seamen boarded to begin their training.
First class Seaman Ruth Bueide. left the Viking at the next. port and as
the ship resumed its journey again, the Captain sighted Seaman Bueide board-
ing the U.S.S. Oak Grove at Fargo, N. Dak. This left seven seamen aboard to
take up the duties of the ship.
The next year brought more results for the 4' Viking." Another recruit,
Seaman Roger Nelson from Cogswell, N. Dak., joined the ranks to bring the
'total for the "Class of 48N to eight.
This group has participated in numerous school activities and when the
ship HViking" pulls out again in the fall of 19-LT, these ambitious seamen will

VVhen the 'iViking'7 set forth in the fall of 1946, seven new passengers
adorned its prominent decks. Their bewildered expressions soon turned to re-
signed acceptance as the ship moved on.
Harlan Hagen, Marion Gieger, Reuben Hogstad. and Robert Tofte had
thoughts of the rural areas they came from, while Frederick Sonstebo and
Joan McClung were right at home. Claire Nelson, having just left the good
ship HCogswell, N. Dak.,'7 found the "Viking" much more to her preference.
The initiation for these new passengers was held on September 23, 1946.
The boys and girls were required to be on deck with the boys dressed as girls
and vice-Versa. That evening the salty crew members of the HViking" gave a
party on deck for the new passengers, who, after a series of tests, were offi-
cially welcomed into the crew as full fledged cabin boys. They are now look-
ing forward to the day when their educational journey will be over and they
will emerge from the ship as Captains, ready to lead the world.

Relying on speed rather tha11 size, the NVallace Bulldogs ended the season
with fourteen wins and nine losses.
They let the other Little Eight Tour11ey contenders know they were there
by winning the 3rd place trophy, being beaten only by the tourney champs,
ln the District Nine Tourney at VVatertown, they again copped third
place and the consolation trophy after bei11g beaten, in an overtime, 26-29,
by the champion, Hazel Mustangs, in the semi-finals. In the consolation
game, the Wallace boys very handily defeated a strong Castlewood aggrega-
During the season, the team lost two overtime periods and won one,
Henry beating them 30-22 and Hazel taking the long e11d, 26-29. Florence
lost to NVallace 38-34 in the other close one.
The Bulldogs seemed to delight in sending the crowd mad with close
scores. Of the 23 games played this year, nine were won or lost by two
points or less.
We wish those two fine ball-players, Gerald Haugen and Herbert Aasness,
a lot of luck as they finish their high school ball playing career.
Herbert was All-Conference guard, as was Gerald All-Conference center.
Without Gerry to spark us offensively, and Ilerbie to keep the opponents
scoring to a minimum, our win-loss record would not have looked very good.
However, even though these two are leaving, Wallace has bright prospects for
even a better team next year. because of the experienc gained and improve-
ment shown this year.
IicRoy's fast breaks during the District Tourney had friends and foes
alike marvelling at his speed, especially when he shot from o11e side of the
floor and then raced over to the opposite corner and 1'ecovered the ball before
it touched anything.
Guarding was Warren 's strong point. VVith he and Herbert back, the
opponents offense bogged down to a standstill. Of course, there were a
couple of times at VVatertown when he got over-zealous-his man stopped
suddenly and the crowd couldn't tell whether VVarren needed a saddle to stay
on better, or a pool of water to land in when he hit.
Herbert falls like a big old tree, slow and easy, and about five minutes
after the fellow bumps him, Timbe-e-e-c-r-r!! 'tShucks! I should have had
a shot on that one, Reff'
Gerry really thrilled his rooters whenever he made one of his character-
istic swish-shots. How do you do it so nicely and yet consistently?
People can't figure out how a Freshman could play such nice cool all-
around good basketball. You tell 'em, Freddy.
XVhenever a good replacement was needed, one who could take any man's
place and do it right, who got the job? You guessed it, Arvid.
Norbert was the jinx this year. The Refs were mean to him. "You big
lug, quit picking on those little guysf' In addition to that, one of his feet
wouldn't mind him.
Three of the fellows, Norris, Johnny fthe squirtl, and Roger helped the
coach retain his sanity during the close 01165.
There they are. Add them all up and you'll find a 11ice, clean, ambitious
bunch of youngsters that will fight to the finish and a very nice gang to work
