Senior Class History Little Sophomores they called us and we just didn't count. Those above us must have forgotten that they too had been sophomores. But with Ewald Hohm carrying our banner and with Miss Bailey and Miss Redmond assisting him, we managed to survive. This first year Huron was hostess to the S. D. E. A. Getting exhibits and music ready for the convention took time and effort and we appreciated the rest of a week that the School gave us. After that we did settle down to work. Then came the op- eretta, "Melinka of Astrakhanf' which starred one of our classmates, Norman Schwietert, as the Chinaman Chin-Chin. Betty Jean Campbell represented us on the Tiger Staff and we also had our representative students in all the organizations, especially the "A" Club. Juniors! And as Juniors we really did count! Being so well pleased with Ewald Hohm's work we re-elected him to lead us, with Miss Bailey and Mr. Deklotz assisting. We rated a play, "Bab"g were well represented in "Moods and Music," our mu- sical production of the year, the Tiger Play, "Shirt Sleeves," as well as having num- erous numbers in the Glee Clubs, Band, Orchestra, Pep Club, Student Council, Tiger Staff, French, Spanish, and Latin Clubs, G. A. A., and "H" Club. Though it is the tradition that the Junior year is the most difficult of the three, we outranked our fellow classmates in the "A" Club. The two big out-of-town events of the year in which we Juniors had our part, were the basketball tournament at Sioux Falls where we won the State Basketball Championship in the Class "A" Division, and the Music Festival at Mitchell in which our members participated. Again we were approaching another summer and knowing that the Seniors would soon be leaving us, we entertained them at the annual J unior-Senior Ban- quet using as our theme, "Venetian Twilight." Vacation ended September eighth after an extended week in order to complete our new school building. We were now the "Dignified Seniors." We elected O. F. Jacobsen to guide us, along with Mr. Reutter and Mr. Shep- ersky as his assistant. The first outstanding event of the year was an unusual Tiger Day, Banquet and Dance. The Tigers overwhelmed the Aberdeen Eagles in a 14-7 victory. In the Tiger Play, "Campus Quarantine," eight of the parts were taken by seniors. Our hopes for the basketball season were high until we were defeated by Watertown and twice by Sioux Falls. Then at the tournament, for the second year straight, we won the championship. On the eight-man squad O. F. and Bob were Seniors. O. F. was picked as one of the all-state forwards for 1937 and also had the honor of being an all-state football end for 1937. Bob received honorable mention as an all-state basketball center. Besides having Basketball in our minds our members in the chorus were prac- ticing for the presentation of "Lelawala", the Indian operetta on February 19, then on May 7, they departed for Madison for the spring festival. And then last but not least, came skip day at Ruskin, May 13, the Senior Fare- well Dance, May 28, and Commencement. We had now reached our goal in high school. Diplomas were presented to 131 Seniors on June 2.

Junior Class 4: ,A Y., .14 1- . A To the success of the Junior Class! Outstanding activity in the many phases of school life has marked the accomplishments of this class. Athletically speaking, three members of the team-Sig, Vincent, and Norman-which brought home the State A championship basketball trophy, were Juniors. Many lettermen on football and track teams were also Juniors. Junior girls helped to shoot the G. A. A. All-star basketball team to its lofty position. Members of this class could be found in the various musical organizations and furnished talent capable of taking several leads in the operetta, "Lelawala." Jour- nalistic and forensic activities claimed the interests of others. One of the class was elected President of the SDHSPA. ln Forensics the Juniors established an enviable record. One Junior placed excellent in State Declamatory contest, another won third place in the State extemporaneous speaking, and four more were members of the debate squad. The climax of each Junior's career comes at the time of the Junior-Senior Banquet given in honor of the graduating Seniors. This banquet was held at the Marvin Hughitt Hotel followed by dancing beneath colored fish in the college auditorium. On this occasion couples danced while colorful fish decorations swam around overhead to music furnished by Scott Dexter's orchestra. Mary Haney and James Crawford as President and Vice-President shouldered the heavy burdens of the class' work, while Norman Engelbretson very ably as- sumed the work of treasurer. Miss Crossman and M1'. Deklotz were the class sponsors.
