The Literary Society has again been organized this year, under the leader-
ship of Miss Miller, and the membership is large-about sixty.
The presidents of the society serve a three months term, giving more people
a chance in that capacity. Oflicers for this year are:
Presidents .... . .Frances Jolly, Arthur Wennerlund,
and Donald Swanson
Vice President . . ...,.,. Ruth Herbold
Secretary ,.... . .Marjorie Welshinger '-
Treasurer ..,,.,...,.,.... ...,,... A nne DeLong "
Last year the society was called just 'Literary Society", but this year the
name "Lambda Sigma" has been chosen. The symbol of the owl was selected
last year. We consider this one of the best accomplishments.
Another accomplishment worthy of mention is the Lambda Sigma pin.
This pins is a tiny silver owl inscribed with the Greek letters L S meaning
Lambda Sigma, and each one is proud to be an owner of it, as well as to be
a member of the Lambda Sigma Society.

"It Happened in June"
Wheelf The Senior Class Play-the Hrst to be given in the new high
school auditoriumf! Weather conditions were with the Seniors, even if it was
winter, and the play was a real success, under the splendid direction of Miss
The plot centers around Betty Branson, pretty owner of Shady Grove
Store, played by Dorothy Thompson. Paul O'Connor played the part of
Charles Atkins, the son of a wealthy chain store owner who, as a hero, saved
Betty and her friend from ruin. Of course every person has a friend, and in this
case, Katherine Ward, as Susie Crundel, was Betty's friend. Arthur Wenner-
lund played the part of a pesky insurance salesman, under the assumed name of
Randy Stewart. All life has some funny side and here we introduce the Bran-
son cook, Lora Lee Chase, as Molly Jessop, whose chief weapon was a pan of
dishwater. Mollie Jessop was the sugar in Jim Prichett's coffee, CDanna Felixl ,
who was the town roustabout. CWe hand it to you, Dan, you sure can make
people laugh.D Nell, the sister of Susie Crundel, was played by Kathryn
Tarbox. She won many compliments for her splendid acting. Ruth Arm-
strong played the part of Evalina Scroggs, the homeliest girl in the village.
fRuth, your dresses were surely be-au-tiful.D Jarvis Sneed, the meanest man
in town, was most splendidly acted by Chester Watson.
The success of the play was largely due to our coach, Miss Irene Miller.
Recognition is also due to Marian Farrier and Gertrude McNelly, business man-
agers: Anne DeLong and Delores Grosslein, property managers: and last but
not least-Gerald Mullaney, Hazen Wilcox, and Philip DeJarleis, stage com-

If "Aq all This year our team, Donald Swanson, Alice Schmoldt and Elwood McGee,

They debated with three schools-St. Louis Park with a decision of 3-1
in their favor. Chaska High School with a decision of 2-l in their favor, and
last with Excelsior High School with a decision of 3-O in Excelsior's favor.
Debate offers fine practice and a sure cure for those who wish to over-
come stage fright weaknesses. This sport also develops clear and quick think-
ing and offers an opportunity for those who do not care for athletic games.
We feel that our team has had a very successful year and although they
have not been victorious they have learned true sportsmanship and created a
spirit of friendliness between Anoka High and other schools. Much of their
accomplishment is due to the splendid work of Miss Ovegaard.
Anoka High was well represented this year in the field of declamation.
We are very proud of our "declamers" and also extend our thanks to Miss E.
Swanson for her splendid help toward our success.
In the sub-district contest, held February ll, in the Elk River High
School, we won two first places and one second: James Roddy received first
place on his selection "The Prisoner at the Bar," Dick Hall in the humorous
division with "Mr. Mishowsky and Der Younk Leddy" also received first place.
and last but not least, Ruth Herbold in the dramatic division with "Davy
Jones' Locker" received second place.
On February 25, the district declamation contest was held at Braham.
Our contestants here, James Roddy and Dick Hall, received second places.
There was keen competition between the schools this year and we feel
very proud and happy over the outcome of our "declamers."
