Cyfistory of CfB'rookings ,Schools
The Brookings school district was organized during the winter of 1879-80. The
outlines of the district were in dispute until well toward spring when a compromise
was effected. The first district meeting was held early in April, 1880, at the home
of Erick R. Olson, who was elected director. Ole Mark was elected treasurer and
Hans Phillipson secretary.
Later it was decided to have three months of school, two in the spring and one
in the fall. Minnie Linclskog was hired as teacher for S20 per month and board. The
iirst two months were taught at the home of Ole Mark, where the college cow barns
are now. The fall term was taught by P. O. Peterson.
Mr. Phillipson took the first school census, finding 79 children of school age. The
district comprised half of Brookings township, east of the river, and 12 sections in
When the railroad came through in October, 1879, plans were started for a per-
manent school building. At a meeting held in December in the Geo. W. Pierce build-
ing-now occupied by the Eide shoe shop-it was decided to issue bonds not exceed-
ing 352,000 for the new building. A committee consisting of G. W. Pierce, R. H. Wil-
liams and H. H, Natwick was appointed to work with the school board. The location
for the new school building was adopted on motion of Geo. A. Mathews. Bonds to
the amount of 51,500 were sold to R. F. Pettigrew of Sioux Falls at 97 cents on the
dollar, and the first building was erected. This is now the main part of the Register
building. Only the first floor was completed the first year, the carpenter work being
done by Hans Christopherson for 3164. The irst teacher in the new building was
Miss Emily Stanton. The next year the second door was furnished, and 3300 worth
of bonds were sold to James Hauxhurst.
It was not many years until the frame building was outgrown and it was sold
and moved, to be replaced by the first half of the present Junior high building. The
enlarging of the Junior high structure, a new grade building, and the erection of a
fine new modern high school building followed at intervals. Now the facilities are
crowded again, and it will not be many years until more room will have to be provided.
From the 79 children of school age in the winter of 1880, the school census has
grown to over 1,110.

We started our high school career in September, 1930, with high hopes for
a very interesting and successful school life. For our class officers we elected the
following students: George Bartling, president: Margaret Kumlien, vice presi-
dent: Dorothy Enright, secretary: and Marie Trygstad, treasurer. One rather
outstanding event of the year was a short play given by members of the Fresh-
man class. As Freshmen we had begun to feel rather left out, and therefore felt
that we should be given the chance to act out a play, so Miss Test was kind
enough to oblige. That year we had our class picnic at Lake Campbell.
S 0 plz0-mo1'e-
After an enjoyable vacation, we returned to school in the fall of '31, with
renewed energy and a desire to make this year even better than the last. We
elected as our class officers: President, Ruth Otternessg vice president, Paul Mont-
gomery, secretary-treasurer, William Bonellg and social chairman, Margaret
Kumlien. That year we also had our picnic at Lake Campbell.
In the fall of '32 we resumed our school affairs as full-Hedged upper class-
men. We elected the following students as our class officers: President, William
Bonellg vice president, Robert Mallg secretary, Walter Lasseng treasurer, Bert
Rude, and social chairman, George Bartling. The Junior-Senior play entitled,
"The Goose Hangs High," had in its cast six juniors. That fall the glee clubs
put on an operetta entitled "1-Iulda of Holland." There were several juniors in
the main cast as well as in the various choruses. The Junior play given in the
spring was entitled "The Three Gracesf' That spring Arthur Larson was elected
student president for the following year.
At the beginning of our senior year we came back to school with the idea
of making this last year the best and fullest of all. We elected as our officers:
President, Virginia Nohlgreng vice president, Philo Hallg secretary-treasurer,
Dorothy Enright, social chairman, Ruth Lightner. The Junior-Senior play, "The
Importance of Being Earnest," was composed of a cast made up largely of
seniors. There were several seniors on the basketball and football teams, in
debate and various musical events as well as the band and orchestra, and the
senior girls have been champions in all the various sports practically every year.
Two seniors placed first in declamation, Margaret Schnaidt in the humorous
division and Sterling Simonson in oratory. All in all we have had a very suc-
cessful last year.

The Citizenship awards are made every year to tha-t senior boy and girl
who in the estimation of the faculty have proved themselves the two best citizens.
The principal, the girls' and boys' physical education instructors, and each
home room teacher rates each candidate privately on the following traits: ac-
curacy, cooperation, industry, leadership, reliability, proper attitudes toward
school, and general value to Brookings High School.
These ratings are summarized and the boy and girl who rank highest in the
consolidated judgment of their instructors are awarded the highly coveted honor.

Coach Cojfey needs no introduction to the
.vtudents of Brookings High School. His services
have been of untold value in the promotion of
athletics. Through him a higher degree of
spo1'ts1'1zar1s1zip and a feilling-ness to fmt forth the
best efforts has sprung up in all the students with
whom he comes in contact.

Six lettermen-Burandt, Means, Johnson, Tovsmsend, Taute, and Ulbrich-and a
host of new inexperienced material reported when Coach Coffey and his Bobcats
started practice in September. Out of this material a small but fast team was de-
veloped which fought hard for Brookings throughout the season, and what they
lacked in weight they made up in ight.
In the first game of the season, Brookings and Madison battled to a scoreless tie.
The following week end they were defeated by the state champions, Milbank, 39 to 0.
However, on the next weekend they staged a comeback in which they beat Yankton
14 to 0.
At the end of the season twenty-three men were awarded monograms: Burandt,
Gunderson, Mattison, Means, Hemmingsen, Ulbrich, Dewing, Taute, Gray, V. Rude,
B. Rude, Barrett, Grudem, Sundet, Jornlin, Searls, Sorensen, Bechen, Lee, Ellis, Muller,
Herbert Ulbrich was chosen captain by the squad.
Burandt, senior, left tackle, Mattison, sophomore, left endg and Gunderson, fresh-
man, left guard, received honorable mention on the all-state team.

Basketball fans of Brookings and students thought the season's prospects were
pretty dark when Coach Bob Coffey issued the call for the team last fall, as only one
man, "Speed" Burandt, was left from last year's "A" squad, the other nine being lost
due to graduation.
The team realized this and worked very hard all season to overcome the handi-
caps, and much credit must be given to the team and Coach Cofey for what they did.
They fought to the last and were called one of the scrappiest teams in the state. In
spite of their inexperience they gave some of the strongest teams in the state plenty
Brookings easily won the district tournament, in which they defeated Elkton 12
to 53, Estelline 14 to 37, and in the finals, Volga 44 to 21. During the tournament,
Burandt, Brookings center, scored 65 points.
Luck was against Brookings in the regional tournament, as two days before
that event "Speed" Burandt, center around whom the team was built, became ill. He
was able to play only a short time and then he was not at his best. Consequently
they lost to the strong Oldham team, 24 to 18, and to Egan in the consolations,
25 to 26.
Those winning letters were: H. Burandt, J. Lee, A. Taute, O. Eldridge, V. Rude
B. Rude, G. Bartling, and H. Bankert.

"QB" Squad Q5-Zlthletics
Under the able coaching of Lester Horrigan, the "B" squads of football and
basketball have worked hard. The purpose, of course, is to provide physical training
for boys and to teach them the fundamentals of the games so that in the following
seasons they will be able to play on the "A" squads of the sports, and for both pur-
poses the system has been a success.
"B" FOOTBALL SEASON
The "B" squad football team began practice shortly after school started and con-
tinued until the last of October. Many of the players were new as most of last year's
players were on the "A" squad.
During the season three games were played, as follows:

Intramural 5 ports
The intramural sports system has in the past few years grown very popular
as it provides amusement for all boys in high school except those engaged in
major sports at that time.
The program divi-:led into four different sports, which are: Home room
basketball, volleyball, kittenball, and track and field.
The home room basketball program is operated in a round-robin elimination
system. The school is divided into leagues, which consist of the eight freshman
and sophomore home rooms in the American league, and the junior and senior
home rooms in the National league. The teams are rated in per cent according
to the games won or lost, and at the end of the season an elimination is held in
each league. The winner of each league play, and the winner of this game ire-
ceives a trophy awarded by the Monogram Club. This is the hrst year that a
sophomore room has ever Won the championship, the team being Home Room
123, captainecl by Rex Wlaltz.
Both volleyball and kittenball are run on the same system during the spring
of the year.
A new club was formed last fall in which the boys may earn their physical
education requirelnents. It is called the Hundred Mile Club and is operated on a
graduated scale. Each boy must run one-half mile a night for one week, one
mile a night the second week, etc., until they arrive at a maximum of three miles
the fifth and sixth weeks. The club was a success, as 77 boys took part in it and
some very good runners for spring track were discovered.
The intramural track consists of freshmen and sophomores. During the
spring, several meets are held, each meet consisting of three to live events. There
is no limit as to the number of events one boy can enter during the season. At
the end of the season, each entrant's points are added up and the one having the
greatest number receives a medal.

Septewtfbelf 18. Dear' Diary:
Our freshman picnic is over. Invitations were sent to all the freshman girls
witl1 good results. All of us gathered at the school house, where we divided into
four groups for the treasure hunt. Each group followed separate trails which
at last led us to Fishbaek's pasture where we gathered around a huge bonfire
and ate our supper. Contests and singing followed, and the group broke up
with many prospects for new members.
That exciting season of soccer is just over, and the seniors are again cham-
pions. An elimination tournament was played which resulted in the thrilling final
game between the juniors and the seniors. Gladys Foft was the soccer head.
The big event of the year took place in the chapel last Friday, The champion-
ship game of the basketball season was played, and the duties of our basketball
head, Harriet johnson, were finished. The juniors again met with defeat from
the seniors in the thrilling game of IO to 5. The band helped make the program
a success by furnishing music.
December 15. Dear Diary:
T hirty-one new members were initiated into the G. A. A. Thursday night.
After they were formally initiated, lunch was served at tables decorated in the
Christmas theme. Christmas tree programs were presented and the initiation
ended with group singing. Informal initiation ensued the next day when the
girls were compelled to wear costumes designed by their big: sisters.
For the past two months the girls have been participating in tumbling and
in a ping-pong tournament. The final ping-pong game was played between Doris
Dyste and Ruth Lightner. The score was 2 to 1 sets in favor of Ruth.
On February 28 the annual G. A. A. dance was held. The Board, dressed
in old fashioned costumes, formed the receiving line. There was a grand march
led by Martha and..George VVashington. A novelty dance, the minuet, was given
by several grade children. jack Elton's orchestra furnished the music.

Another sport season is past. A round robin volleyball tournament was held.
Then an elimination of the two classes Having the most wins was run. off, The
juniors won from the seniors in the final game. Mildred Lakman was the volley-
Moy. Dear Diary:
Baseball, tennis, deck tennis, horseshoe, and hiking are all now well under
way. VVe are all looking forward to Field Day, when the finals of our tourna-
ment will be played. The memories of our G. A., A. days of 1933-34 under the
direction of Miss Miller will not soon be forgotten.

"The main purpose of the school is to teach the
pupil to do better the desirable things he is 'going
to do anyway, and to reveal higher types of ac-
tivity and make them both desired and to an extent
possible." -Dr. T. H. Briggs.
Extra-czlfrricillar activities are provided for the purpose of broadening a
SMlflC1ll,S 6'd1'lCl1Zl"l07t and building character. Outside activities allow a student to
work in a field he enjoys and to use his own ideas, as well as giving him a chance
to learn to associate with people.
A host of activities, other than the set curricular program, are finding prom-
inence in high school circles. Brookings High School tries to mai-ntaini a well
rounded Program including athletics, dmnzatics, forensics, music, and a large
number of clit-bs.
N early every student particifvates in one or more of oitr activities because
he is able to select at least one in which he is interested. Such- af wide interest
makes it possible for our activities to comjnare favorably' 'with schools having cz
much larger lIfl'C11dlfl7lC6'.

The French Club was organized for the purpose of stimulating interest in
French life and customs and for acquiring a better knowledge of the language.
It has a membership of forty, and is an active organization in the school.
Monthly meetings have been held during the year, for which amusing pro-
grams have been planned. Several dialogues, pantomimes, and skits were pro-
duced to develop a better knowledge of French and a greater fluency in the speak-
ing of it. Most of the members carry on an interesting correspondence with
students in France.

stunt by the S. S. S., pep talks by a numlber of the alumni, and selections from
the Alumni Band and from the High School Pep Band directed by Roger Frank-
lin. The Bobcat Day King and Queen, James Lee and Ruth Lightner, were
presented, after which the crowd gathered around a huge bonfire andf continued
their peppy yelling.
After the game the next day, a banquet was held in the Methodist Church
basement. The tables were decorated carrying out the themes of the Arrows and
the Bobcats, with football programs. The decorations committee was Betty Col-
lins, chairman, Vernon Hanson, Betsy Bibby, Bernard Butler, and Delores Lee.

VViseman, William Bonell, and Irwin Johnson. Arthur Larson, student presi-
dent, presided as toastmaster of the banquet. T oasts were given by Harold

carried out in the nut cups. Each place card bore the symbol of the "man in the
moon." Crescent moons constituted the programs. Vernon Hanson, the junior

master during the banquet. He introduced the following toasts: Comets and
Meteors, Elizabeth Wfrightg Constellations, L. D. Horrigang Milky Way, Philo

vocal solo, and a string trio furnished the instrumental music.
