Thus in an attempt to bring them closer to us, and the school closer to them, we have turned to the written and pictorial history of our school. Our work was fascinating. The material loaned to us by so many people made the selection of the historical markers difficult. WE COULD NOT HOPE .......... to publish a complete memory book . We have tried only to present our school--YOUR SCHOOL--as it is now, and was then .

Class Poem We are fifty years down the line ln this new year of '59 And in this good old Midland School, Ten good members have passed the rule. First of all comes Bobby Abel And on his sweater he has a label. Very active, but a little small, He won this letter in Basketball. Kay Abel with her background so fair Will be off to a salon to work on hair. Fix it up plretty, and comb it nice. lf it isn't too difficult, she'll follow advice. Sadie Dennis with her bright remark In her happy daysf sang like a lark. Now with a diploma that she has won A good job will be waiting for her to come. Blaine Dinsmore, a comical clown Never in a lake will jump to drown. He'll be a mechanic and work on his car And tend to his farm, that's better by far. Peggy Flom, a girl of delight Never too often did she get in a Fight. Yet she is quiet, quick and smart, Has to life given a good start. by Blain Dinsmore Judy Foshiem, as all can see ls as happy as can be. A neighbor has won her heart And soon, she hopes, they will never part. Maureen Gillaspie with knowledge and cheer Works an so easily her last year. Of all the twelve terms she has gone, l know she never was in the wrong. And now Roy Hunt we must mention The home guard gives him a small pension. He studies a little now and then, He is the tallest of our ten. Laurel Merkle, Editor will be Of the New York Times, you wait and see! She to the Eastern states will go Make Midland's name famous, that l know! Christine Nemec with a mind of her own Does her work willingly without a groan. Through a nurse's school she will get her training Then to a hospital her desire will be aiming. Now that we are gone from school, Our little "cherubs" will join the rule They will pass the twelve years too, Start their youngsters as me and you.

During the early years of MHS participation in sports, basketball games consisted of intramural contests held in the upstairs portion ofa structure then located at the site ofthe Standard garage now owned by Harold Joy. It was not until 1921, under the direction of Mr. R. V . Eckman that interscholastic sports were inaugurated and became a vital part of the high school activity . The school supported eleven-man football teams during the 20's and early 30's with the exception ofa few years when no contests were scheduled. The fall of 1938 ushered in the six-man team with Art Jones as coach . In this first year the squad completed an undefeated season, outscoring Kacloka, Philip, Okaton, and Wall. Changing to an eight-man game in 1956, the Vikings continued in this division until 1958-'59. No team was organized during the current season. MHS has sponsored basketball teams each year. ABE B. Abel, L. Foster, R. Hunt, B. Dinsmore, D. Coffey, R. Marshall in Z?a5LeIfdaf ..... Basketball, the only sport in which Midland High School participated during the l958-'59 term, was coached by Ronald Marshall. Twenty boys reported, including Five lettermen. During the season, the Vikings won 6 and lost lb. Contests consisted of IO conference games from which Midland emerged in Fifth place . The record was 3 wins and 7 losses . Two games were lost by l point and one by 2 points. In a Thanksgiving tourna- ment at Quinn, November 28, the Vikings won the opener with Wall in an overtime 42-39 contest, but lost to Quinn in the finals. The District toumament, February 26-28 consisted of seven teams, creating a bye which was drawn by Midland. Philip defeated MHS in the first game, and in the play off for fourth place, Interior squeezed by the home team by a one- point margin . Co-captains for the '58-'59 season were senior guard, Bob Abel, and junior forward, Leslie Foster. Highest scoring players were Roy Hunt, Blaine Dinsmore and Leslie Foster. 'N wsu .

A warm spring day, near the end of the school term, ushered in this "big event." Towns- men were warned by advance notices stating the date of the "invasion." Students and faculty, equally enthusiastic, entered into the spirit of the day. Sometime before noon, these hoboes dressed in rags and tatter., visited the homes of the villagers to find delicious ' hobo fare" ready and waiting. Assembling in a shady area along Bad River, the picnickers spent a wonderful day, shared a bounti- ful meal, and departed with pleasant memories. The "best dressed" were awarded prizes for their efforts. This traditional event was abandoned near the end of the 20's and other activities took its place . "Hark, hark! The dogs do bark! The hobos are loose in the town . Some in rags, some in tags, And some in velvet gowns." .A47A065-.j6lfLg:5- ULQQVLJ . . . WLGLVCA 6!0bUlfL dA? 190985 .fi idlfory. Carnival day with merrymaking and booths, started in l932, is now an annual MHS activity. Held since then, during the autumn months and somewhat changed in form, it has come to be a gala event that is anticipated by stu- dents and community. Per- haps one of the more important modifications is the election of royalty. In the fall of l935, Clara Fosheim, now Mrs. Roy Roseth, became the first car- nival queen. The following year a king was elected for the first time.. ln l958, Sonia Meyers and Jerry Nemec, Jr. reigned.

Prologue Before the turn of the century, when the west was still the "wide open spaces" of rolling hills and great expanses of prairie, the town of Midland was founded. In l89O, Charlie Russell came from Buffalo, New York, to Pierre, during the capital boom in l888 and '89, In the spring of l89O, soon after the territory was closed as a reservation and thrown open to white settlement, Mr. Russell organized a company, plotted a site, and called the town Midland, because of its position midway between Pierre and the Black Hills. He opened a store and later a hotel which was operated by Mrs. Emily Hall, mother of Mrs. Jennie Russell. Mrs. Hall had orig- inally settled at the Nowlin site. Wagon loads of goods were freighted from Pierre to stock the Russell store . Customers were ranchers, cowboys, and many Sioux who traveled the Spotted Tail Trail from the Rosebud reservation. ln those days, Mr. Russell said his doors were never locked and nothing was stolen until the railroad brought hobos, civilization, and the need for law and order. Mr. Russell and Jennie Hall were married in i895 and their daughter Grace was the first white child born in Midland . She was also one of the first two graduates of Midland High . Life in this "promised land" seemed ideal to the few early settlers. A dream of prosperity, plenty of game, wood, water, and sunshine was the bright hope of the future . ln the midst of this peaceful existence, during the month of Q November, came rumors ofa Sioux uprising . Scouts warned the pioneers that the path of the war party would perhaps head through Nowlin. Settlers, including Mrs. Hall and her three daughters, one of whom was Mrs. Jennie Russell, spent a cold and fearful night on the banks of Bad River. About fifty families gathered at Midland and began the long sixty-mile wagon train trek to Ft. Pierre and safety. Spending the nights sleeping on hay and under cattle sheds, and the days traveling their weary way, the party arrived, after three days, at Ft. Pierre where they remained until the spring of '89, when Mrs. Hall returned to Midland and opened the hotel which she continued to operate for seven years. One of the disastrous. events of the early day was the blizzard of May 5, 1905 which wrote a tragic story across the pages of the westem ranch life. Beginning as a rain which lasted two days, the storm came suddenly, sending temperatures below zero. Bewildered livestock drifted into creeks and draws and were covered with snow or died of exposure and cold. ln the same year, another blow struck the pioneers . On July 4, Bad River flooded its banks causing ranchers along the river to flee their homes in the dark hours of the night or early moming . Lives were lost and much property destroyed. i Q.. l 3 A symbol of those early days were the cowboys, many of whom are well known. They became members of our present community. Of these rugged individuals, Mrs. Emily Hall wrote in her account, "l found them to be the most generous and kind hearted class of people I have met." Mrs. Bastion, early hotel owner in this area, gives almost the same opinion. These cowboys rode the range and took part in the spring and fall roundups. Tom Jones was one of the very early foreman of the wagons. Many an evening was spent around the campfire after a meal prepared by the chuck wagon cook . Through the severe blizzards, droughts, floods, and prairie fires, these hardy pioneers continued to live, laugh, and share their sorrows. Many memories of those days are still alive in the hearts and minds of our people. Although Midland was named in l89O, it really had its start in the fall of 1906 when, on December 16, the railroad was extended from Pierre. This began the homestead caval- cade which lasted until l9ll when one of the driest yeals in the history of the west river hit the country and sent many back east. In about T919 much of the north side of main street was destroyed by fire. These buildings were later replaced by the C . E . Murray Store and the Legion Hall. Arriving on that first train was Julia Talledge, still a resident of Midland. Julia worked in the Nationcil Bank for many years, and since has held positions at the state capitol at Pierre and county offices in Philip. :. 'iw ln the very early days there were no churches and pioneers worshiped in their own homes in the way which best met their particular need . The Presbyterian Church, now the Lutheran Church, was completed in 1906 and a few years later the Catholic Church was built. In I948 the Open Bible Church was established . A Methodist congregation also had a build- ing below the school hill. Reverend Weiruch, Ft. Pierre, was the pastor for many years. Reverend Tell was another early minister ofthe Presbyterian Church . A pioneer Sunday School superintendent, Mrs. A . Beiler, inspired many a youth with Christian ideals. Those recognizable in the photo are: Milbum Fose, George Taggart, Frank Dinsmore, George Minard, Mrs. Beiler, Oscar Lane, Forrest Buchanan, Ronald Robertson, Cecil Fose, Glen McCracken, Burton Beiler, Hall Snow, Roy Abrahamson, George Anderson, Wulf Reinschmidt, Unidentified, Melvin Ravenscroft, Gale Fose. The scene of much of Midland's school and community life was the "Opera House" constructed in about 1908 at the approximate site of the present Irene Long home. Echoing voices of the past, this building held memories of home talent plays, dances, movies, bazaars, Christmas programs featuring the huge community tree, high school basketball contests, proms, dramatic pro- ductions, and graduation exercises. Destroyed by fire in l926, the loss was keenly felt, For students and community were deprived of a meeting place until the present Legion Building was erected in l929. iolfwem .... dozifcfkr ZLAQ fizfnre. Midland, at one time, boasted an orchestra, and for many years, a band, under the direction of V . L . Ferguson . A ibVI'6lW7, . . . 2l'C'0lf1fl05 Ha K There were no schools of any kind in the country. ln 1904, Mrs. Bastion, who lived east across Mitchell Creek taught Hazel Jones, and in 1905 and '06, Grace and Ruth Russell were also included in this private school. In September of 1906, a regular teacher was secured and school was held in a building located where the Masonic Temple now stands. Miss Ball continued to teach this second term. In 1908, the school was moved to a building called the Hanson Hall located iust south of the Stroppel Hotel at the present site of the Joy garage . Miss Nina Duryea and Mrs. Schroder taught this school. Work had begun on the present structure which was completed in 1909. Classes first met in this build- ing in the Fall of 1910 with 53 pupils enrolled For the first session . Prof. Hanson was the first superintendent and Gladys Hall the first principal. The photo shows the first high school, during the term of September 1912 to May 1913. This included grades 9, 10, and 11 . There was no graduating class until 1914. 52 1 s Organized December 3, l909, members of the board of education were Mrs . D . W. Bastion, C. E. Murray, J . C. Russell, M. C. Sherwood, J . E . Calhoon, and W. C. Kroclc. Early students were no doubt much im- pressed by the arrival ofthe "Horseless " Carriage " age . One ofthe First auto- mobiles to arrive in Midland, a Reo owned by Charles Coyne lbankerl, must surely have caused a sensation. W L 'Wm . r ir.yixxsstLi. '---.. l ,, ' My ,A E r'u.uf. at!

The class of l9l5 had only one senior, Hazel Jones, who later in the 20's returned to become a high school teacher in the local school. - The Jones' ranch was the scene of many an outing supervised by Mrs. Charles Agee, who was a leader ot girls' activities. Enjoying this particular "Fun-fest" are lLeft to Rightl, Ruth Russell, Esther Jones, Blanche Voshall, Lorraine Harren, and Hazel Jones. Occupying the driver's seat are Mrs .

World War I was a grim reality and the senior boys, John Larsen, Frank Miles, and Archie Rogers enlisted and were not present to receive their diplomas. Garrett Rogers, Ernest Elrod, and other graduates had already joined the armed forces in service of their country. During this period, it was necessary for women to take over many tasks . One of these chores, that of school ianitor, was assumed by Christine Ray and Audrey Armstead. They, as well as many other young women, helped by assisting with Red Cross Activities.

Eckman, who is largely responsible for the organizing of basketball and football as interscholastic sports which have continued to be a part of MHS history. Alumni always include pleasant memories of amusing incidents occuringon the trips taken by the teams. Conveyance to nearby towns along the railroad was by train, and to the interior by means of automobile. Both boys' and girls' teams were included. Games would be scheduled to fall on consecutive nights so several games could be plaved during the course of one trip, if rail transportation were used. Automobile iaunts were often spiced by breakdowns, or car-sickness caused by non-freezing preparations placed in radiators. Hot bricks, or charcoal burners warmed the cold feet of many a basketball player during 56 the days "before heaters." SEATED: Myrna Blackmore, Vera Rogers.

It was edited weekly by the Joumalism Class, and published through the courtesy of the Midland Mail. In I934, the paper became a member of the SDHS Press Association at Brookings, S . Dak. Scott Lovald placed first in the T934 State contest for editorials and also received, in 1935, a bronze medal for placing among the first ten in a Quill and Scroll Joumalism Contest. Scott also was selected as one of the high school iournalists to cover the SDEA meet. 60 as ., J., ' sr E- ? .. ll?

Yet, in spite of this, these were years of accomplishment and advance- ment. Dormitories, begun in I934, were maintained during this time. One of the teachers, or a patron, was appointed dean for each group md cooks were engaged to prepare the meals. G leanings from the Hill Top Flashes indicate the success of this project, both as a service to the students, and as a source of pleasant memories. Social and study hours were arranged. The girls assisted with the dishes while the boys carried water and sawed wood. The school also boasted a chorus, or- chestra and band which were very active and performed on many occasions. They attended the annual Music Festival, at that time sponsored by one of the Hickory Stick clubs . In I934, the band and orchestra were under the direction ofV . L . Ferguson, while G . I . Brende, high school teacher, directed the chorus. ' - f ' X it V ,,', -. ., ' r . , . . - , 2 ii:m'4sw v1fzf12's e asel ' z 4s's4sf4ez?4s '1 'ff-:z.:Mf- +. 1-'K 4.f:Q::f 1..,:11, .

Junior-senior banquets continued to be held in the school or at the hotels. Themes and decorations became more colorful and elaborate. Records give evidence of banquets to honor the Basketball squads. These were sometimes given by individual "fans" who were interested in the teams. Added to the Junior, Senior, and One-act plays were the grade and high school operettas, produced annually beginning in 1931 and con- tinuing through the 3O's. After a lapse of many years, senior class days were resumed in 1937. The programs con- sisted ofthe class will, history, prophecy, the giving of letters, and presentation of awards. Camivals began in 1932 and were first held in conjunction with the presentation of the Junior Play. Later they became a full evenings entertain- ment with short skits by the grade school preceding the carnival. The,first annual, published in 1937, was a paper-bound volume containing all the issues of the Hill Top Flashes . Pictures were pasted in by individuals after receiving their annuals. The 1938 yearbook was the first to be published by a printer, the Will A . Beach Company. It was a twenty-five page volume. The yearbook was called, with the exception of 1949 when it was named the Viking, the Cactus until 1953. The title was then changed to the Viking and has remained so since .

Midland was host to the District 12 tournament on February 25 of that year. Midland defeated Wall in this tourney but lost to New Underwood. In i937 the debate team of Juilanna Martin and Orville Bentley defeated Kadoka to take first place at the invitational tourney at Kadoka. Declamation was also an important extracurricular activity with Midland students often receiving superior ratings . Orville G . Bentley, right, was a graduate of MHS in l938. He is presently Dean of Agriculture at South Dakota State College, Brookings. Dr. Bentley delivered the annual commencement address to the Senior class of 1959. The class of '30 was the first ofa long line of graduates to march down the aisle of the Legion Hall to receive a high school diploma. ln October l934, a parent teacher association was organized and in the some year, District 30 organized the Bad Lands Athletic Conference. ln -i March, I935, the district organized the Hickory DORM DAYS Stick Club with Superintendent Norby of Midland as Big Stick fpresidentj . In l938, an alumni organiza- Lf tion was started, but apparently was not continued O ""'l as planned . Q I Basketball teams were well supported and were mx an outstanding part of the extracurricular activity K H program. According to alumni memories, teamswere first l called Vikings during dormitory days when an election il' was held to determine a name suitable for local school ffl athletics. The name "Viking," symbolic of the ,i Q Q numerous Scandinavians then attending school, was KX N Q Q Q chosen to impart a spirit of courage, inherent in ,J their ancestors, to those namesakes. QX A -K ,Q i x In I936, the team won the District tournament and was awarded the trophy . Interest in Girls' basketball was revived, and a G . A. A. was organized in l936. Participants were awarded letters for sports. ln the spring of l938, football, which had been dropped for a time, again became a part ot the piun ror the following year. Suits were purchased, spring practice was held to ready the team for participation on the i939 six-man football season. In that year they completed an undefeated season. Kittenball was a favorite fall sport during the early 3O's. The team participated in lnter-class games, neighboring towns contests, and tournaments.

The World War ll years--years of anxiety and 'ff strife, had their effect upon education. Many extra- 1 V curricular prograrrs were discontinued . 1 ' s lt ln 1947, a Red and White day was held in con- L A L 1 E junction with the Junior Class Play and Carnival. 9 ..1l.5J:43?z2ibi5x 1 ff g brmfyrrxnmw This was the first record ofa Homecoming Day. The last nine years have followed the same trend in activities and curriculum. The School, especially the grade rooms, have increased in enrollment. The football team under the direction of Bob Demery in 1954 had the distinction of winning the Champion- ship of the Bad Lands Conference, and was awarded a trophy. A football sweetheart was elected that year by the boys on the squad. Joyce Petoske received the honor. The identity of the sweetheart was revealed as she arrived at the homecoming game in a float decorated with a huge red heart. Since then a homecoming day, usually held in October, became a part of MHS fr0Cl1l10I'1- The Student Council makes the arrangements and all the classes make on all-out effort to produce beautiful and symbolic floats. The businessmen are invited to enter a parade, led by the Queen and football boys, to start the day's activities. On the evening prior to homecoming, a pep rally is held in the playground below the school. A huge "M" is ignited and cheers and speeches are heard . Here, since 1955 the identit, of the queen has been revealed. The rally ends with a wiener roast and a snake dance proceding through main street. Publication of a newspaper, begun again in 1954, was the beginning of the mimeographed form now used. The annual continued to be published each year. The school is a mem"er of the SDHSPA, and the editors and co-editors have attended the Brookings convention for the past several years .

Willard McMillan -- Commander Clarence Petoske -- Adjutant Don Slweeley--D epartment Vice Commander MIDLAND SOUTH DAKOTA Editors Note I It was our desire to include as many group and activity pictures as were possible to obtain, of MHS graduates . We regret that, in some cases, we have failed to do this because such photos were not available . Few were received of the 40's and 50's, due no doubt, to the fact that each class had its own annual after 1938. I would here like to add a note of thanks to the members ofthe Senior Class of 1959, and to Mrs. Haddock, our advisor, for the many hours they spent in the preparation of the I959 VIKING . I would also like to extend a special "thank you" to the alumni who so generously lent us the priceless pictures used in this volume. We hope you have enjoyed your trip through the pages of MHS and Midland community history, and that the few snaps have brought back many pleasant memories .
