NEKOOSA CLIPS VIROQUA 49 - 0
fAt Nekoosa-October 4, 19571
The Papermakers, being watched by a partisan home crowd, rolled merrily
over Viroqua. Viroqua put on the field a much stronger team than the
score would indicate. The teams were on somewhat even terms the first
half with Nekoosa taking a 14 - 0 lead to the dressing room. In the
second half the P ' ' ' ' '
D apeis ran wild scoring five quick touchdowns and
coasting to victory.
NEKOOSA STOMPS TOMAH 27 - 0
fAt Tomah-October 11, 19571
The Papermakers, out to win their 18 in a row, were all set to stomp
Tomah and stomp them they did, as the Nekoosa forward line completely
destroyed the Tomah offense, by holding them to 100 yards rushing. The
score of this game does not even indicate the kind of a game it was, as
Nekoosa was in complete control from the opening kickoff. The first two
times they had their hands on the ball the Papermakers scored. Coach
Gene Cardinal, wanting to play everyone, substituted freely throughout
the game to give all the boys a chance as Nekoosa's next two games
were to be tough ones. Leon Holden, Nekoosa's right halfback, broke
his collar bone in the first half.
NEKOOSA VICTORIOUS OVER SPARTA IN HOMECOMING 28 - 14
fAt Nekoosa-October 25, 19571
The Papermakers, primed after a week's layoff with the flu, showed very
little weakness in rolling up 200 yards and four touchdowns in the first
half. Sparta was completely baffled by the Papers strong defense. The
Papermakers provided much excitment for a large Nekoosa Homecoming

PORTAGE SNAPS NEKOOSA WIN-STREAK 14 - 7
CAt Portage-November 5, 19571
The Nekoosa Papermakers, out to win their 22nd game in a row, met defeat by a
stubborn Portage eleven who would not see defeat. All the scoring was done in the
first half. The Papermakers scored their touchdown in the first quarter, after an
exchange of punts. Nekoosa with a hard charging line led by Gene Winker and full-
back, Ken Kukulka, moved the ball down to the seven where Ken Milkey took it over.
Portage came right back with a score, when the quarterback ran 33 yards after
being trapped behind the line of scrimmage attempting to pass. Their second touch-
down came on a pass to the Portage left halfback after a series of penalties moved them
down the fied. At the half Portage took a 14 - 7 lead to the shower room.
Nekoosa received the second half kickoff and marched down the field, led by the
hard-running fullback: but the Portage defense was equal to Nekoosa's offense as
they stopped them on the two-yaxd line. This was the last serious threat of the
evening with Nekoosa losing this game, which put them in a tie with Portage for the
title. Lleven seniors played their last football game for the Papermakers, who in the
last th.-ce yeais ran up a win-streak of 21 triumphs.

JR. HIGH FOOTBALL
Twenty-five boys reported for junior high football in September with eighteen of the
g.oup ffnishing the season.
The first game was played against the more experienced Sacred Heart team
and we lost 20 - 0. After two weeks of hard practice we played the Saint Lawrence
team of Wisconsin Rapids. We won the game by a score of 62 - 6. Two other games
were scheduled but with the outbreak of the flu and limited practice, the games had
to be cancelled.
Several promising football players were uncovered and they should be fighting
for positions on the high school team in the next few years.

WESTFIELD TRIMS NEKOOSA 56-50
fAt Westfield November 22, 19571
Well balanced scoring and rebound control demonstrated
by Westfield's Pioneers dealt Nekoosa its first basketball
defeat of the season in a non-conference opener. Weak
spots in the Papermaker's game according to Grosshuesch,
included a lack of rebounding on fast oreak situations, and
mental lapses on defense which allowed Westfield several
easy layups at crucial times.
In a B-squad game Westfield trounced Nekoosa 38-13.
TRI COUNTY TAGS NEKOOSA 47-38
fAt Nekoosa November 23, 19575
Ragged passing and ball handling tagged the Papermakers
of Alexander High School with their second non-conference
basketball defeat, this time at the hands of Plainfield's
Penguins. Reeling from a loss to Westfield, Nekoosa
again failed to cope with a 7-C league outfit whose strength
is measured in rebounding ability. Plainfield, never behind
or in real trouble, held leads ranging up to 15 points.
In a B-squad game Nekoosa edged Plainfield 33-32 in
NEKOOSA LOSES TO PORTAGE 70-60

The amazing jump-shooting of Portage guard Ken Gravatt,
who garnered 41 points in a demonstration of accuracy
from the field, swept the Warriors past a scrappy but out-
manned Nekoosa squad in a South Central Conference
opener. The Warriors earned their first lead at 20-18 in
the half. Portage never lost the lead after that.
Nekoosa's B-team defeated the Warrior Bees 24-19 in
a preliminary match.

The Papermakers captured their first cage victory of the
season against arch-rival Port Edwards in a hard-fought
non-conference match, but the Nekoosans had to overcome
a 12-point, third period deficit and stave off a closing
Blackhawk rally to do it. Nekoosa led 20-16 at the

Nekoosa's Papermaker cagers stumbled to their fourth
straight South Central Conference defeat as the Reedsburg
Beavers registed in their initial victory in play on their
new court. The Papermakers scored as many points in
the final quarter as they did in the first three stanzas, but
a 21 point Reedsburg bulge at the end of three periods was
too much to overcome.
NEKOOSA MAULED BY MAUSTON 75-54
fAt Mauston December 20, 19571
The Golden Eagles of Mauston High romped away with
their first South Central Conference victory at the expense

The Green Devil cagers of Adams-Freindship High School
managed to outfumble a blundering Nekoosa quintet in a

almost the entire show in leading his teamates to
a victory over the Spartans in a hotly contested

times. Ken Milkey netted 14 markers in playing
little more than three quarters. Ken Kukukla
with 10 markers was the only other Nekoosan to
register double figures.
TOMAH PUTS PAPERS IN CELLAR 75-72

A last quarter rash of Nekoosa fouls sent four key
men to the bench and Papermaker reserves were

Indians came from behind to earn a hard fought
South Central Conference victory. Struggling to
gain possession of the ball, Papermakers Weaver,
Kukulka, Oleson and Milkey all left the game with

A great team effort by a Nekoosa basketball team
which showed a hungry desire to win defeated

Richland Center. Well balance Nekoosa scoring
was led by forward Bill Weaver who potted 27
markers. Dick Hultberg netted 18 points all in
the last half. Kukulka's layup, Weaver's brace of
free throws and Blackburn's jump shots were all
Nekoosa needed in the overtime period.

Unable to match Sparta's powerful rebounding and scoring
abilities, Nekoosa's Papermaker cagers floundered to a 24-

MEMBERS OF THE HIGH SCHOOL CHORUS
Alexander High School Band
The Alexander High School Concert Band under the direction of Mr.,
Howard J. Schuren, has had another of their busy years. In Novem-
ber, they went to Oskosh, Wisconsin to hear the United States Air
Force Band. There they heard a lot of good music, both instrumental
and vocal. Although the Air Force Band wasn't as large as they
expected it to be, it played a very good concert. The next trip took,
which was also in November, was to Wisconsin Rapids. There, along
with bands from Wisconsin Rapids and Schofield, they were divided
into two bands, for a band workshop. The bands were under the dir-
ection of two college music teachers. They were Mr. Schraeder from
Lawrence College and Mr. Sarig from the University of Wisconsin
Extension Division Music Department. The bands practiced two hours
and a half in the morning and three hours in the afternoon. Then they
gave a concert for the high school in the late afternoon and another
concert for the public that night. Although they did a lot of work,
they had fun doing it. All three bands get together once a year for
this band workshop. Next year Mr. Sarig will be one of the directors,
but Mr. Schraeder will be replaced by another college music teacher.
They change one band director each year.
Then the next event for the band was in May. This was the solo
and ensemble contest at Merrill. We are proud to say that there were
a large number of students who either took solos or ensembles or both.
Then later that month, the music tournament was held also at Merrill.
The ratings of the band last year were, first in concert, second in sight
reading, first in marching and first in inspection. The band also held
its spring concert that month. Also in May, 65 students, some from
Lincoln and some from Alexander, were picked to play in a concert.
Each piece the band played, they had a different director. There were
twenty dirctors in all.
The students picked, were not picked because they could play
their parts, but also because of their attitude toward the whole idea.
This was a convention of band directors. It started on Saturday and
ended on Sunday. The concert ended at four thirty.
Karl Sanger a member of the band was absent the day the band
picture was taken.
The Pep Band also did well this year. The student director was
Dick Blackburn, when Dick was not able to direct, Louise Arent took
over. They both did a very good job.
The students who took over the bands when Mr. Schuren was not
there were June Femling, Sonia Zellmer, Dick Blackburn, and Jean
Jepson. These are all seniors and are to be congratulated on the fine
job they did for Mr. Schuren.
The Cadet Band also did a very fine job this year. They went to
Merrill also, being entered as a class D band. There are some promis-
ing players in this band.
Mr. Schuren is to be complimented on the fine job he is doing on
the Alexander High Concert and Cadets Bands. He always said a band
is only as good as its poorest player. Mr. Schuren spends most of his
free time doing something to help the bands. He also listens to other
bands. Although some: students don't care to spend as much time on
their band practice as they should, if it weren't for Mr. Schuren, we
wouldn't have as good a band as we do now.
This year has proved to be a good year for Mr. Schuren. He was
voted president of the Wisconsin School Music Association. We are
very proud to have him as our band director here at Alexander High
