Father and Son Banquet
As a climax to the football season, an appropriate banquet was held in the
gymnasium on Thursday evening, November 6, 1930. The following ap-
petizing menu was served by the mothers of the players:
Chicken Pie Mashed Potatoes
Cake - Ice Cream
Mr. Adams, our superintendent, acted as toastmaster. The boys in-
troduced their fathers and adopted fathers for the evening. Mr. Heinemann
extended a welcome to the fathers and guests. Among other speakers were:
Mr. Faber. Jimmie Wennerlund, Mason Flint, Dr. Larson, Mr. Roddy, Mr.
Reed, Captain Pat O'Connor, and Jimmie Hollom. Jimmie was elected as next
year's captain. The following boys received certificates which entitled them to a
letter for their services. They are Bard, Betlach, Bergeron, Davis, Evans, Felix,
Flint, Haroldson, Hollom, Matheny, Miller, O'Connor, Reed, Russell, Spence.
Wennerlund, and Wilcox. Our faithful manager Jimmie Wennerlund will also
receive a letter for his excellent care of the boys. The lettermen were given
gold footballs by Ed. O'Connel in behalf of the Anoka business men. Dr.
Gates and Mr. Smith were then heard from. Mr. Smith stated that he did
not think a better climax to Va football season could be had than a Father-Son
banquet. I'm sure that we all agree with him.
The Seniors decided to have a party! First, to the theatre where they
enjoyed an interesting picture. Back to the school where games were played.
A square dance was performed by Flumpy and Chet. Mason and Norma, Mar-
garet and Art, and Leone and Pat. Soon "eats" were announced and everyone
rushed to the Home Economics room where apple cider, cookies, and carameled
apples awaited them. About twelve stanzas of 'AI-lome, Sweet Home" climaxed
The seniors are quite sociablel Another party was held December 19.
Dancing and games provided the evenings entertainment. Lunch consisted of
doughnuts, cocoa, and marshmallows. Due to the lack of attention, the cocoa
burned, so Eddie Coleman and Art Patterson hurried to purchase some more.
Everyone left happily, and the mishap was forgotten.

Glee Club Party
Now that the operetta was over and the members of the glee clubs had a
chance to breathe again, they decided to have a party. The members of the
orchestra who furnished the accompaniment for the operetta were also invited.
It was on the chilly evening of March thirteenth when all the children
gathered at the High School gymnasium. What sweet children some of them
seemed to be, and how they romped around the gym. Gerald Mullaney, with
his little cork gun made certain that there were no undesirable characters lurk-
ing around. Hazen Wilcox announced the games for the evening's entertain-
ment. When it drew near the children's bedtime, lunch. consisting of cup cakes
and ice cream, was served. Before long, weary heads began to nod and soon
all were plodding homeward after a very enjoyable evening.

John Norton, Blanche Howell, Marjorie Wells, and Frances Gordon were

The organization is another great success of our 1930-1931 school year.
All we can say about the "pep seXtette" is: "We can't sing. As singists
we are not a success. We are saddest when we sing. So are those who hear us.
They are even sadder than we are."
