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 as captain. 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 Dakota. 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. CLASS PROPHECY 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 bubbles. 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 CLASS WILL 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 Dorothy Hogstad. lggljgggggmggvg VIKING gl947 Salututoricln RUBY NELSON Eighth Grade ,,,.,., Wallace High School Clipper Staff ........

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 be on their last mile of the Waters of kiiowledgre, their destination-HPORT SUCCESS. 6 1947 VIKING 1947 Sophomore Class Stlmdirigz limlith Moss, Glurizi Nelson, Shirley Moe, Mrs, Olson, l'l:1ss Advisor.

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 let the other Little Eight Tour11ey contenders know they were there by winning the 3rd place trophy, being beaten only by the tourney champs, Vienna. 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- tion 29-36. 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 with.
