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 crowd. NEKOOSA ROMPS PAST MAUSTON 28 - 6 fAt Mauston-November 1, 19571 d h i I ' K M'lk y accounted for all 28 points: The Papers exten t eir winning stilelak to 6321.

' R 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. f N N ,-"bv ' 'Q X S' Q Q l 53 ii' 51 EEF- 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. -'fi l 2 'IF' -4 34 On October twenty-fifth, Judy Ploetz was crowned queen in a colorful festivity which took place at the Pep Assembly at two o'clock. Judy Ploetz, Gail Gjertsen and Joan Skibba were the three senior candidates: Sally Capek, Joye Wegner and Pat Vavrina were the three Junior candidates. All six girls were nominated by the vote of their respective class, and the queen, was elected by the vote of the student body as a whole, which consisted of grades 7 through 12. The queen's ballerina length dress was fashioned of aqua nylon net over taffeta. The neatly pleated net bodice was cinched at the waist with a taffeta cummerbund accented by a large bow and sash in back. Dainty net ruffles fell softely off the shoul- ders. The billowing triple tiered net skirt fell gently to ruffled points over a full taffeta skirt. Her wrist corsage was composed of red roses and white carnations. The Court's corsages were composed of contrasting flowers. The queen accompanied by Gail Gjers- ten and Joan Skibba rode in the parade in an open convertible. Riding in another open convertible following the queen's car were Pat Vavrina, Joye Wegner and Sally Capek. We were very fortunate to have Mr. John Jonnes, our school photographer niake a special trip from his Studio in Milwaukee to take pictures of our Home-Coming festiv- ities.

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 overtime. NEKOOSA LOSES TO PORTAGE 70-60 tAt Nekoosa November 26, 1957l 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.

Nekoosa led 20-16 at the quarterstop. Port earned a 42-36 halftime lead. Nekoosa's B-squad bombarded the Blackhawk Bees 49-13 in a preliminary match. NEKOOSA NIPPED BY DELLS 57-48 fAt Nekoosa December 6, 19571 The Papermakers lost their second South Central Confer- ence game to fast Wisconsin Dells squad. Papermaker forward Bill Weaver had his best night of the season, collecting 17 rebounds and 16 points to lead the Nekoosa quintet in both divisions. Dick Blackburn, filling in for Nekoosa's injured center, Ken Kukulka, garnered 12 points. In a B-squad game Nekoosa lost to Wisconsin Dells Bees 29-23. VIROQUA DEFEATS NEKOOSA 75-61 iAt Nekoosa December 13, 19571 A rangy Viroqua cage outfit crushed the Papermakers on the strength of a lopsided second quarter but the bat- teied Nekoosans didnt give up without a fight. The Papermakers were trailing 45-25 at halftime. Viroqua led 24 19 at the quarter In a B squad game Viroqua beat Nekoosa 40-36. XJ 2 L' P3 i1U'AlQb5U2 431374 g3D ry! V REEDSBURG TOPS NEKOOSA 66-56 lAt Reedsburg December 17, 19571 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 of the haples Nekoosa Papermakers who suffered their fifth straight loop defeat. Nekoosa was unable to hit its shots from the field to open the game as the Eagles mov- ed into a 13-7 first quarter lead. Nekoosa's B-squad lost to the Mauston B-squad 33-26. PAPERS NIP A-F DEVILS 64-55 lAt Nekoosa January 7, 19581 The Green Devil cagers of Adams-Freindship High School managed to outfumble a blundering Nekoosa quintet in a raggedly played tilt and the Paper City five chalked up its second non-conference victory of the season. The game had little luster as both teams booted the ball away time after time with bad passes and violations. NEKOOSA STUNS SPARTA 65-61 fAt Nekoosa January 10, 19581 Bill Weaver, Papermaker scoring wizard, stole almost the entire show in leading his teamates to a victory over the Spartans in a hotly contested battle that saw the score tied no less than 15 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 fAt Nekoosa January 17, 19581 A last quarter rash of Nekoosa fouls sent four key men to the bench and Papermaker reserves were unable to cope with Tomah scoring power as the 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 five fouls. BARABOO BUMPS NEKOOSA 58-41 lAt Baraboo January 24, 19581 An outstanding Baraboo defense held down Ne- koosa's cagers for three quarters and allowed a medicore scoring power to set the pace in thwart- ing a Papermaker bid for an upset South Central Conference win. NEKOOSA TRIMS MOSINEE 69-47 fAt Nekoosa January 28, 19581 Pounding out a non-conference win over Mosinee the Nekoosa Papermakers gained their third vic- tory in five starts since the Christmas holiday break. VIROQUA SMASHES PAPERS 64-44 QAt Viroqua January 31, 19581 Four players, including two from each team, were thrown out of the game for scuffling on the floor in the hotly contested battle. At the end of the first quarter Viroqua led 21-8. Viroqua left the court with a 34-20 halftime advantage. A nip- and-tuck third quarter put Viroqua ahead 49-33. NEKOOSA STUNS RICHLAND CENTER 78-T7 fAt Nekoosa Febrauary 7, 19581 A great team effort by a Nekoosa basketball team which showed a hungry desire to win defeated their second South Central Conference opponent of the year. In overtime, the Purple outlasted 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. , 2 D 21 -. 'X 'L f f i ' I . , E. 5 . Q 5 V 5 , , 3 1 j 3.

Eight seniors playing their last home game for Nekoosa were intro- duced before the contest including Hultberg, Weaver. Kukulka, Milkey, Blackburn, Oleson, Benchoff and Ruder. SPARTA 74 NEKOOSA 61 at Sparta Febraury 22 1 Unable to match Sparta's powerful rebounding and scoring abilities, Nekoosa's Papermaker cagers floundered to a 24- point deficit early in the fourth quarter and couldn't catch up with a closing spurt in blowing their ninth South Central Conference game of the season. TOMAH 84 NEKOOSA 64 at Tomah Febraury 28 After an entire half-game of the best brand of basketball they've played all year, Nekoosa's Papermakers suddenly collapsed under a barrage of jump shots by a Tomah guard and tumbled to their 12th defeat of the season. e 8 S -, .W-' Y: J, f saw MHS, 9 sk ' an 1.5.nb"4' CHEERLEADERS The cheerleaders are chosen by the student body The group IS com posed of two squads The A team and the B ' team The A team gxrls are as follows Kay Holmes Shlrley Frelberg Rolanda Jackson Judy Musch Juanita Crowns Joan Alexander The A ' team umforms consxst of purple sklrts whrte sweaters pur ple shoes and whlte socks The B ' team umforms consrst of pur ple sklrts whlte sweaters purple socks and whxte shoes Thls year we had a new attractlon wrth Robble Enerson as our mascot The "B ' team gurls are as follows J amce Hultberg J oye Wegner Joanne Paxnter buff G A A This orgamzatlon rs the Gxrls Ath letlc Assoclatlon wlth Mrs Newell as the advlsor They meet every Monday nlght after school There are 55 members and the offxcers are the followmg Presxdent Roxanne Jackson Vlce Pres Charlene Saeger Sec dz Treas Rolanda Jackson Rec Sec June Femlmg The dues are 50 cents per semester The gnrls recerve points for varlous actxvltles The award the glrl re cerves depends on the pomts she earns They play basketball deck tenms, etc ..,.- .

Y-f 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. Ale 1 i .,.-.-at 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 School. 47 Cast Louxse Arendt Jxm Schmidt Bonme Sablovltch B111 Weaver Darlene Guenther Gall GJertsen Judy Cole Davxd Benehof!
