-'WTHE ANOKANW- Dorothy Thompson, adored star of the silver screen, was resting from her latest box-office hit, "Blondie" Gordon Blesi was doing some of his fancy skating stunts to entertain the men and women at the A'Who's Who" convention at Lake Placid. New York. Among those present were Secretary of Radio Ca new office in the President's cabinetj, Philip DeJarlais: Evelyn Peterson, Commissioner of Education: and Edwin Bryan, Ambassador to Switzerland. In the spacious gymnasium of Wellesley College, Evelyn Grunquist was coaching the girls' basketball team. John Spence had all the criminals quivering in their shoes at his shrewd- ness as a detective, Paul O'Conner and Leone Sullivan were bringing down the house in a Broadway theatre with their comedy hit. Mildred Johnson was high on a house top, doing a shingling job. Evi- dently she was a carpentress. Marion Farrier was in a gold fish hatchery, trying to charm the fish into singing by the music of her saxophone. Edna Laws was in Louisiana determining how many particles of. salt flow- ed into the ocean from the Mississippi in 4 seconds. Dolores Grosslein had retired on her vast wealth, secured when she un- earthed a chest of precious stones while digging for clams in Massachusetts. Evelyn Swartout and Geraldine Petrie were successfully operating a sou- venir shop in Anoka, and many were the eccentric Europeans who bought tokens to place in their collections from famous spots in the world. Hazen Wilcox had made millions in the Autoplane business. These tiny planes were a great help to congested air traffic. Dan Felix was uproariously filling the place of the late Will Rogers. The World's Free-Style Swimming Championship .was held by Blanche Howell. Judson Roberts was in the Hawaiian Islands, designing grass skirts. Alvin Zeigler was champion pole-sitter, having sat on the North Pole for 53 hours 18 minutes. Marian Rogers, the happy bride of a political cartoonist, was making doughnuts and singing. Marian's song was brought to an abrupt stop by the clang of a bell. "The hour is up," cried Alice. We woke up, dazed, The four o'clock bell was ringing. Strange to say, we had all dreamed the same dream. We yawned, sighed, smiled hopefully, and filed out of the assembly. -FRANCES JOLLY, Panrommisr for Paramount. Tfweniy-one

-'ii THE ANOKAN Everett Russell was captain of a whaling vessel and never a mutiny arose among his jolly tars. Riginette Marander was in Stockholm, lecturing to the women's clubs on how to raise children like they do in Minnesota. Norma McArdle was matron of an Orphan Home. Lois Dougherty was cashier in the private bank of Al Capone. Lora Lee Chase was seated at a desk piled with papers. A visor covered her eyes while she wrote with a pencil in each hand. A few more stuck out at handy angles from her hair. Have you guessed? Of course, she was the editor of the New York Times. Gertrude McNelly owned a chain of little yellow and blue stores. They resembled doll houses and a quaint sign hung outside each shop-"GERTA'S DUTCH SWEETMEATS." A tall, well built man with pearl buttoned spats was throwing dimes to children along the street. His stride was strangely familiar and we recognized Chester Watson, the richest broker in the country. Dorothy Madigan was holding the hand of Arthur Wennerlund. He had hurt himself in the World Series Baseball game and Dorothy, being a nurse, was taking his pulse. i Margaret Sam sat in a weird corner of the "Cavern", and gazing deep into Edward Coleman's eyes and back into the teacup, she foretold Eddie's success as Flo Ziegfeld's rival in business. Carolyn Ciundlach was at the head of the Minnesota Board of Movie Critics. Q -John Keillor was manager of the Osseo Model Farm which included a miniature golf course, roller coaster, and swimming pool for his hired men. Mona McFee was vice-president of the "Scotch Women's Non-Shrinkage League." Recently she had discovered a chemical, which, when boiled with spinach. prevents its diminishing to nearly nothing. Floyd Peterson was a 4-H Club dentist. Many miraculous things had he done to relieve the toothaches of Horses, Hens, Hogs, and Holsteins. Anne DeLong had opened a cooking school in China to teach the natives how to serve rice in different ways. Lucy Ruffcorn was teaching school in Hoboken, New Jersey. In her class room were children of seventeen nationalities, none of whom spoke English. Mason Flint was in Spain. He was trying to set the record for heart- breaking. CThat is, to have a sweetheart in every country. Just then our Romeo was trying to evade a large Senorita who had quite fallen for the roman- tic idea. ' , Twenty

THE 'ANOKAN Class History Pioneers are we: yes, just as true pioneers as those adventurous forefathers of ours who dared the storm-tossed Atlantic: who pitted their strength against cold, hunger. and disease: who valiantly struggled across the vast plains-seelv ing new worlds to conquer. We are the sons and daughters of the pioneers of the middle west. Through the four years of high school we have worked and toiled with what have seemed to us mighty problems: but these have been but foot-hills to the mountains that lie beyond. As Freshmen, the mountains were merely a line on the horizon. What they were, we did not know, but the pioneer spirit within us bade us "Westward Ho!" Through the second year, we saw them a little more distinctly in the distance, and our third year found us ready to climb the last hill that leads to that towering peak whose summit lies covered with clouds, and beyond, the golden fields of the harvest. At last we have scaled the hills--now we must be trail-blazers. Noi longer will our paths be laid out by fathers, mothers, and teachers. Alone we must climb. We must push on for new worlds to conquer, for we, too are pioneers. -FRANCES JoLLY. Senior Class ADv1soRs Mr. Heinemann Miss Miller MoTTo: "Forward!"
