When we, the Class of '26, entered in l922, we were perhaps as green as the rest,
but time has changed us: we are now the dignified seniors. The whole school body
knows the history of our class, but just to refreshzyour mind on this subject. we will
review it for you.
The best football team produced in the last four years was honored with eight mem-
bers of our class, who helped us win second place in the conference. Three of our
members represented our class on the high school basketball team: a senior captain led
each team. The senior girls' basketball team captured the championship for three years,
while the boys' team carried off high honors for two years. ln baseball. the senior boys
won first place for three years.
But outside of the athletic teams, the senior class was well represented. In debate, al-
though we lost the class contest in our junior year, we refer you to the present class of '27
as to the results of this year's debate. In triangular debate we were well represented by
three members of our class. Our class representatives carried off tirst and second place
in the extemporaneous speaking contest. In declamatory, a member of our class received
first place in the district contest.
In our junior year we staged the best prom in thc history of the school. All in all.
we feel our four years in high school were very successful, and although we don't like
to hand ourselves any bouquets, we hope we may gracefully say that we have done our
share in building one of the best high schools in the state.

lWe, the juniors, claim the distinction of being the honor class of the Antigo high
school. Through our achievements we carry out our motto, "To the Goal," in every
line of work or play we undertake.
Juniors stand high above all others in each branch they undertake. It was the
juniors, nine of them, who upheld the honor of the school and the glory of their class
on the football field. We are proud of them! Our class upheld the majority on the
basketball team-live out of the nine on the squad-truly a remarkable record. Can we
not be proud of them? Vlfe accepted defeat from the seniors in thc annual Junior-Senior
debate. Sportsmanlike, we said. "We will do better next time." We won by raising
our ambitions: now who really did win, the juniors or seniors? XVe have representatives
in other lines-the debate club, extemporaneous speaking, interpretive reading-who
if not the juniors. are on the top rung of the ladder of Success, Can we not be proud

"WE LEARN NOT FOR SCHOOL BUT FOR LIFE"
Isn't that a splendid motto to go by through the four years of high school life? It
belongs to the class of '28, that peppiest of peppy classes, that entered Antigo high in
the fall of 1924. Their colors are green and white and they have served as decorations
for many occasions. The freshman spread was a valentine party and everyone had a
"scrumptious" time. The first year of high school was very exciting and the days were
crowded with work and play. But the freshman year was over all too soon and the
green ones were sophomores then. They were much more important and entered into
the spirit of high school life at once. Officers were elected and an adviser chosen at the
first meeting. while later meetings were occupied by discussions about the spread, which,
it was decided, would be in the form of a summer party. It was a thrilling sensation
to come from a land of ice and snow into a room where palms grew and butterflies flut-
tered about. Japanese lanterns and wicker furniture made an appropriate setting and.
if one used his imagination. the effect was delightful. Basketball games always brought
out the sophomore class, and contests or outside activities were backed by the class at all
times. The class of '28 was further distinguished when Alice Sleeter won first place in
the local declamatory contest.
There is plenty of talent in this peppy class and the junior and senior years will give
the '28s a wonderful record. -MARJORIE DUCHAC.

Our team may win or our team may lose, but there is one thing that is
more important than winning, that is, to be a good winner and a better
loser-a true sportsman.
We have always striven to play the game fair, and, if we must lose, we
lose with fair play rather than to take a victory won by foul means. We
take our defeat with a smile, saying that the best team won: if we win, we
treat our opponents with courtesy.
Every man on the team knows what it means to be a good sportsman
for each one has the reputation of the school in his hands, and if he fails
to play fair his school must suffer.
Our school can be proud of the way its students have striven to live
up to the standards of Good Sportsmanship this season and in the past.
Undoubtedly, in the future, we will continue to turn out teams composed
of men who are True Sportsmen.

Antigo may turn out championship teams, but always through their victories show
the efforts of Coach Emigh. During the last several years. while he has had charge of
athletics here, Mr. Emigh has worked untiringly with the fellows, training them in the
ethics of good sportsmanship and developing them into winning teams for the glory
of the Red and XVhite. XVinning or losing, he was heart and soul with them, sharing
their joy or their sorrow. Vlhen they lacked pep, he instilled it in them, and when
they were downcast and embittered by defeat, he encouraged them. To all the fellows
he was "Coach."
Coach Emigh has been singularly successful with his teams, winning high honors in
both football and basketball. He hails from Ripon, where he won his letter and got his
experience. XVe hope he will be with us next year to coach our teams to victory.

The lirst football summons brought out a crew of warriors that any school could
be proud of. The prospects looked bright for a successful season with eight letter men
back from last year and experienced sub-string players to Hll the vacancies. A few weeks
of hard training put the team in trim for their Hrst tilt.
At Merrill, September 26. on a muddy field and in a drizzling rain. our warriors
started their season. In spite of the weather. both teams played real football. but run-
ning and passing were necessarily difficult. and Merrill held us to a scoreless tie.
On Saturday, October 3, the fast Stevens Point aggregation invaded our city for the
football game. A hard light followed. but the game ended with Antigo holding the
short end of a 12-0 score. The Pointers were a fast lot. playing an excellent brand of
football, but the game was much closer than the score indicated.
October lO found our Red and NVhite warriors and most of the school at Marshfield.
Our team was falling into its stride and decisively whipped the Orange and Black, mak-
ing two touchdowns and holding its opponents scoreless.
Our old time rival, Rhinelander, was our next victim, Half of Rhinelander came
over to see the game. but our team, playing in mid-season form, put the Green and
XVhite utterly to rout, defeating them to the tune of 48-O.

Our next tilt was with XVisconsin Rapids on their field. The game was played in
slush and sand and ended in a scoreless tie. Antigo threatened the Rapids goal several
times, but always lacked the Hnal punch to put the ball over.
Antigo had bowed before XVausau for four years and so on October 31 our war-
riors were all set for revenge when the former visited us. One of the hardest games
ever played on our Held followed, but our team, playing in their best form, annihilated
East Green Bay High is a much bigger school than Antigo, but, somehow, a game
was chalked up between us. Naturally, the Bay won. 34-3, but Antigo could get a
great deal of consolation from the fact that they scored the only points made against
the Bay all season.
Our final game was with Shawano on November 14. The Shawanoites proved to
be a fast bunch and gave us quite a tussle, but the game ended with the Antigonians on
Undoubtedly this season was one of the best Antigo has had in years. Out of a
schedule of seven conference games we suffered but one defeat. Two games ended in
a tie. Antigo won second place in the valley conference, being beaten only by

TO THE ALL AMERICANS
It's easy to play hard and take knocks when you are a regular and
there's a chance of playing for the Red and White with the din of cheers
sounding in your ears, but when the outlook is dreary and no one gives
you a cheer or a handshake or cares whether you play or not, when you're
sore from bumps and knocks and you know you will never be a hero, it's
hard to keep on and stay. That's what the All-Americans were and
that's what they did-through the whole season. When it was cold and
wet they gritted their teeth and made the first team light for every inch.
Because of their pluck and fight Antio developed the best team they have
had in years. Without the help of the second team this would not have
been possible. May we always have their spirit with us.

JOHN XVALCH 1CaptainJ
"Johnny" Walch, quarterback and cap-
tain. piloted his team through one of its
most successful seasons in years. Even in
the heat of the game, "Johnny" kept cool.
encouraging the fellows. and choosing his
olays with discrimination. Much of Antigo's
success was due to his ability to make the
right move at the right time. He will be
missed next year.
"Mike" Hoffman, veteran of three sea-
sons, was a consistent ground gainer. When-
ever he carried the ball he went for yards
and yards before he was downed and then
only after a fight. Left end runs were his
specialty, and it took a mighty good tackle
to bring him down. This was "Mike's"
Arlow was one of our hardest lighting
linemen. His build was ideal for a guard,
and his pluck and fight made him a most
dangerous player. He never failed to make
a hole in his opponent's line when it was
needed, and very few men ever got through
him for gains.
"Larry" was a veteran of last ear's
squad. This year he played half, iinuch
to his opponents' dismay, who found him
harder than an eel to catch. He squirmed
through all kinds of lines. making gain upon
gain for the Red and White. He will carry
the old pigskin no more for Antigo high,
"Pete" Nowotny donned the helmet and
corks for Antigo high for the first time this
year. His build was ideal for a lineman, so
into the line he went, and he proved him-
self to be an exceptional guard. Hilton's
graduation left Antigo without a punter
until "Pete" stepped into his boots, and.
like his predecessor, he was one of the best
punters in the conference.
"Fighting" George was a new man this
year. but, although new and inexperienced.
he earned his name by fighting every min-
ute of every game he played. Runners
never found easy ground through George's
territory, and they had to fight hard for
every inch they gained through him.
This year "Johnny" played end, and his
build made him a good one. He had won-
derful ability for catching passes and break-
ing up end runs, and it took a mighty fast
man to get around him. This was
"Hansa's" last year.
Although "Eddie" was rather light for
the tackle position, his pluck and fight more
than made up for his lack of weight. and
he proved to be a very dependable player.
Very little ground was ever gained through
"Eddie's" territory, for. somehow, he was
always right in the runner's way. bringing
him down with a thump. He will be .1
mainstay in the line next year.
1326 1, 9
"Fritz" was a veteran of last year's eleven
and a stone wall in the line. No ground
was ever gained through him that pluck and
iight could prevent and "Fritz" had plenty
of both. He was a favorite with the fans
and much to everybody's regret finishes high
school football this year.
"Olie" Miller was one of the best centers
in the conference. Whenever his opponents
tried to make ground through him they
found him as immovable as the Rock of
Gibraltar and as strong on the offensive as
he was on the defensive. Chet has one more
year to go.
"Crainie" was a new man on the team
this year, but his Irish and his fight more
than made up for his lack of experience.
He was a hard man to put out of the way,
and his tackles were fast and sure, always
bringing the man promptly to the ground.
'AClate" was a born fullback-big, fast,
fearless. When our halves found extreme
difficulty in running ends. or when there
were a few yards needed, "Clate" took the
ball and always netted the required ground.
He will be the mainstay of next year's back-
The end position is a hard position to
fill, but Bennie filled it admirably. He was
an expert at hooking passes out of the air
and breaking up end runs. Although he
was a new man, he proved his ability as a
football player, so watch for him next year.
By constant hard work. Joe earned his
"A" early in the fall. and luckily, for he
was laid up during the rest of the season.
Joe is a big man and although this was his
nrst year, he proved to be an excellent guard.
Next year, if luck stays with him, he will
be able to show everyone what's in him.
Aleck Becker was one of our most de-
pendable halves . Whenever he carried the
ball the fans were sure Antigo would gain
ground. "There are more ways than one,"
says Aleck. If there was a man on the
ground, he traveled through the air.
"Rollie" Jonas was a born fighter. and he
found his stride in football this year. He
played a fast game at guard and was a con-
stant source of trouble for his opponents,
for he was always tearing holes in their line
through which our backs made huge gains.
"Rollie" will be back next year. Folks.
just watch him go.

The call for basketball men this year brought out a whole battalion
of men ranging from lightweights to heavyweights. After a few weeks
Work Coach Emigh selected his team and put them through some stiff
practices in preparation for their first tilt.
Minoqua Was our first victim. The game was remarkably fast for
so early in the season, but Antigo's team work was far superior and We
finished on top 10-6.
Wabeno was another practice game but the locals had a stiff tussle to
win it. On passing and shooting we showed much improvement
and our team Was finding its stride. The game ended with Antigo on
the heavy end of a 16-12 score.
We suffered our first defeat when the Wausau basketeers invaded us
the next Friday. Our basket was hoodooed, and the locals only found
I l IXIXIXX
it three times while Wausau's basket seemed bigger than usual: they found
it for 18 points.
After a week of hard practice the wearers of the old Red and White
wiped Merrill off the map, defeating them by a score of 19-10. Thus
encouraged, they awaited Shawano.
Antigo suffered its second defeat at the hands of Shawano. Shawano
came close to winning the championship last year, and with most of their
letter men back they proved too much for the locals, defeating them 19-8.
Antigo was all set for revenge on Wausau. The game was fast and
clean, but the Wausauites proved to be the better team and again they
defeated us, this time 19-8.
Neenah visited us on the following Friday and sadly routed our team
in a lopsided game, winning 27-8.
Rhinelander was "doped" to win the next game, but when Rhinelander
and Antigo play, "dope" doesn't count. In one of the fastest games
ever played on our floor the locals triumphed over the Green and White
by the close score of 19-18.
Nekoosa would have been an easy victim if it had not been for an acci-
dent to our captain "Mike" after which the team could not hit their stride
and Nekoosa triumphed 17-8.
Antigo hoped for a victory over Shawano when they met again on
February 19. Shawano a second time proved too much for us, and we
suffered a 36-10 defeat.
Encouraged by our former victory over the Green and White we sent
our team to Rhinelander. The loss of Hoffman was keenly felt in the
game and we lost 29-14.
Our final game was with Stevens Point. The champion Pointers
proved too fast for the locals, running up a score of 30 points and hold-
ing Antigo to 5.
If we consider the number of games won and lost Antigo did not have
a tremendously successful season, but we can get a great deal of consola-
tion from the fact that we won from our old time rivals, Rhinelander.
Hard luck seemed to pursue the team. At the beginning of the season
Coach picked Rock and Hermann to fill the forward positions. Rock
quit, and Hermann fell tearing a ligament in his ankle. Next Hoffman
broke his finger and was out of several games. To top it off, just be-
fore the tournament several of the men contracted the grippe.
Considering the games we won and all of our misfortunes, we have had
a fairly successful season.

FRANCIS HOFFMAN fCaptainj
"Mike" was one of the hardest men to
get around, and when his opponents work-
ed the ball down into his territory they al-
ways found him there to get them. He play-
ed a fast game at guard and had a "dead"
eye for the basket. Sorry, but this is his
"Clate" was a veteran of last year's quin-
tette and one of our ablest guards. He
played hard and fast and had a good eye
for long shots. XVith two years of exper-
ience, much can be expected of him next
"Umps" was a born basketball player.
His shooting and dribbling often won shouts
of applause even from his opponents. He
was fast on his feet and much of our suc-
cess was due to his playing ability.
In basketball, as in football, "Johnny"
showed his usual supply of fight. Every
minute that he played he fought hard, and
the score usually showed it. He was an
accurate passer, and, if given half a chance,
he was sure to make a basket. This is
"Johnny's" last year and his loss is much
to be regretted.
Though this was "Pete's" first year on
the squad, he played like an old-timer, fill-
ing the guard position, which is always a
hard job. Pete has another year to go,
and with this year's experience he should be
an all-star guard next season.
Eddie" was a player of unusual ability.
was very fast, always making sure of
his passes and cooperating with the rest of
the team. He netted many baskets during
the season and his guarding on the five-man
defense spoiled many a basket for his oppo-
It was "Shiek's" job to lill the center
position left vacant by Hilton, and he did
it admirably. He was a good shot and his
floor work was remarkable. "Shiek" will
be back next year to make baskets for the
Red and White.
"Nigger" was a new man on the squad
this year, but his ability more than made
up for his lack of experience. He played
hard and fast, handled the ball like an ex-
pert, and was dead on all kinds of shots,
long or short. He will be back next year.

It's easy to practice for two hours every evening if you are on the first team where
you have a chance to play and hear the crowd cheer for you, but when you're only a
second string man, and, although you work as hard as a regular, there's no glory com-
ing to you, it's pretty hard to go out and practice. To keep up the spirits of the second
team, Asistant Coach Amundsen scheduled several games for them.
They appeared for the first time in a game with the seniors as a preliminary to Antigo's
first tilt on December 3. The game was fast, but it was early in the season, and both
teams lacked practice. The second team, though composed mostly of under-classmen,
soundly trounced the seniors 8-5,
Their second game, a fast preliminary with the juniors, ended in a 4-4 tie.
The second team, encouraged by one tie and a victory, traveled to Wausau for a
game with the Junior high. The Wausauites proved too much for our aggregation,
and they came home with the light end of a 13-9 score.
While the regulars were battling the Green and White at Rhinelander, the second
team again played Wausau, hopelessly outclassing them in the first half. The Wausau-
ites, coming back in the second half, however, whipped us for a second time 13-9.
Next year, undoubtedly, many of these men will be regulars and Mr. Amundsen de-
serves much credit for developing them into a strong team.

Although we had won only a few conference games we had beaten
Rhinelander once and so received an invitation to the tournament to see
if they could put us to rout.
When the tournament started, our team was not in the best possible
physical condition, for three of our men were just recovering from sick-
ness contracted at Stevens Point.
Although we were determined to whip Wausau and although we gave
them a stiff tussle, we came out on the short end of a 30-5 score.
Tripoli appeared to be an easy mark for our passing and team work
were much improved. They gave us a good tussle, but we won 10-3.
The next game with Medford was a warming-up match for the finals,
as we still had hopes of beating Rhinelander again and winning third
place. Medford put up a good fight but lost 13-16.
The iinal game was on Saturday evening with Rhinelandew The
Green and White shattered all of our hopes by beating us 21-6. '

Class basketball has always been popular in the school, and this year
was no exception. Class games aroused almost as much enthusiasm as
the high school games. Coach Emigh appointed members of the faculty
to take charge of the various classes,-he himself acting as coach for the
freshmen, Mr. Amundsen for the sophomores, Mr. Fehlandt for the jun-
iors, and Mr. Roith for the seniors.
Immediately after Christmas vacation practice began when teams and
their coaches Worked hard, each determined to win the cup.
Nothing could be judged from the outcome of the preliminaries as to
who would be the winner because all of the teams showed up in line shape,
and all of the games were close enough to give the fans some real thrills.
After the first few games the seniors began to pull away from their op-
ponents by beating their old time rivals, the juniors, in a very close game.
The freshman-sophomore game attracted much attention. Both
classes paraded around the gym decked out in their colors, singing their
songs. The sopohomores won the hotly-contested game.
Both teams were ready for revenge on the seniors and sophs, when their
games came around again. The freshmen fought their hardest and
whipped their rivals, the sophs, but the juniors were not quite as success-
ful. The seniors were determined not to lose and stemmed the on-
rush of the juniors, beating them in the overtime period.
Next the Frosh surprised the whole school by beating the juniors in
one of the final games.
The end of the season found the seniors in the top berth. As a re-
sult the Blue and White will decorate the interclass cup another year. The
juniors took second place and then came the freshmen and sophomores
in third and fourth places respectively.
The class interest in the games this year is probably due to the fact
that all the teams were evenly matched and were working hard for the

The final game of the tournament was played between the juniors and
seniors. The seniors carried off the honors of the tournament with the
exceptional record of never having been beaten.
All the classes exhibited line playing and teamwork this year. All
the teams were well-matched. No game was an easy victory. All had
to work hard and well. For the high standards and good playing that
were shown at the games, much credit is due to the careful coaching and

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
A new activity has been added this year to the extra-curricular activi-
ties which has proved to be a very successful organization. It is the Girls'
Athletic Association. The purpose of this association is to promote
among the girls an interest in athletics. A point system has been worked
out by which girls can earn letters for their efforts in the sports.
The girls chosen to represent this association and to have charge of the
activities this year were:
President - Wilma Heinrichs
Vice-President Marjorie McKenna
Secretary - - - Juanita Prehn
Treasurer - - - Wilma Peterson
Outdoor Sports - - Angeline Fierst
Indoor Sports - Marie Jones
Hiking - Dorothy O'Donnell
Track - Mildred McKenna
Faculty Adviser - - - Miss Phillips
This organization included not only the efforts of the students in gym
class, but also promoted an unexcelled and pleasant interest in all sports.
Those enjoyed were skating, coasting, skiing, hiking, and tennis. In
school, basketball, baseball, volleyball, track, and distance throws furn-
ished opportunities for exercise.
Every participant looks back with pleasure not only upon the excel-
lent exercise and training this organization has provided her but likewise
upon the fine enjoyment and good times she has had for her efforts.

Accordng to the usual custom the juniors met the seniors in debate on
November 20. On this occasion, one of the most remarkable events in
school life, the high school auditorium was filled beyond seating capacity.
The vast crowd gathered not only to witness a debate but also to see if the
hoodoo, which had favored odd numbered classes, would be broken. The
junior debaters, Edward Eriedl, Erdman Bassett and Hazen Raettig were
well strengthened with confidence by the loyal support of their peppy
The junior team upheld the affirmative side of the disarmament ques-
tion. Through the untiring efforts of their coach, Miss Koten, they did
their share in giving stiff opposition to the mighty seniors. After many
weeks of hard work under able guidance the juniors accepted defeat at the
hands of the seniors. In spite of this defeat, however, they stood up
against it in a true sportsmanlike manner.
The class, dressed to represent the many countries of the globe, march-
ed in to the tune of, "Yes, Sir, That's My Baby." After a promenade
about the main room, singing, their song for victory, they discarded the
swords they were carrying in keeping with their side of the debate ques-
tion. The canopy under which they were seated was artistically con-
structed with yellow and white, their class colors.
The mascot stunt which greatly helped to stimulate the interest in the
debate was very cleverly carried out. As the curtain was parted, the god
of war reigned supreme on his throne of power. The god of peace, how-
ever, vanquished him, thus acquiring possession of dominance. This
made clear the junior's advocations.

J UNIOR-SENIOR DEBATE
On November 20, the high school auditorium was filled with a large
audience which gathered to hear the annual junior-senior debate. Both
teams were determined to win. The juniors were favored by the jinx
of the odd-numbered classes while the seniors kept the defeat of the year
before well in mind.
The question for debate was: "Resolved, that the United States
should make an agreement with the nations of the world to further limit
all forms of national defense." The question is a vital one to all citi-
zens and attracts much attention today.
The senior canopy in the class colors, blue and white, represented a
beautiful hall. On the top of the canopy was the " '26."
The seniors, dressed to represent the nations of the world and armed
with balloons and confetti, had a typical Mardi Gras. The senior stunt
was also of different character. It was put on by members of the senior
and sophomore classes. The playlet was an interpretation of the nega-
tive side of the question.
The senior team was composed of Lu Verne Webster, Donald Clark,
and James Weeks, who ably upheld their side of the question.
The decision of the judges was unanimous in favor of the negative.
The judges were Mayor T. J. Reinert and Mrs. R. B. Johns.
Much credit for the senior work must go to their coach, Miss Greene,
whose constant and unsurpassable work led them to victory.
On February 20, the triangular debate season opened with a dual debate
when Antigo's affirmative team composed of Emmett Below, Jean Can-
non and Donald Clark met Shawano's negative and came out with a 2-1
decision in their favor.
The negative team traveled to Shawano and put up a good fight with
Shawano's affirmative, but the decision was unanimous in favor of Shaw-
The question for debate this year was: "Resolved, that Congress be
granted power by federal amendment to the Constitution to regulate all
forms of child employment." The subject is an extremely interesting one
for the late twentieth amendment is a duplicate of this question. The
high school auditorium was well filled at the debates.
The second debate was held with Wausau on March 4. Antigo's
negative composed of Stewart Johnston, Hazen Raettig, and James Weeks
debated Wausau's aflirmative here. Debating ability and team co-opera-
tion enabled the Antigo negative to gain a decision unanimously in their
With a 2-l victory to their credit, Antigo's affirmative journeyed to

the attack made by their opponents and received the short end of a 3-O
Triangular debate was operated somewhat differently this year. Early
in the year Mr. Tipler, debate coach, divided his squad into the freshman
and senior squads, each having separate meetings. This made possible
more individual work which is essential in debating. After try-outs were
held and teams picked, the senior debate teams were composed of Emmett
Below, Jean Cannon, and Donald Clark, with Erdman Bassett as alter-
nate, affirmative, Stewart Johnston, Hazen Raettig, and James Weeks,
with Edward Friedl as alternate, negative.
Another added feature to the debate work was the use of extemporan-
eous speaking. No learned speeches were used.
As usual, much credit is due to the patient work of Mr. Tipler, the tri-
angular debate coach. His untiring devotion in making Antigo stand
out in the debating field was not alone his purpose but to develop better
debaters and debating in the high school as well.
Debate next year will be well backed by Emmett Below, Jean Cannon,
Hazen Raettig, Edward Friedl, and Erdman Bassett, who will be back to
help make debating an important feature in high school activities.

The Extemporaneous club, whose activities have been substituted for oratory, began
its functions early in the year. The regular meetings were not held until after the be-
ginning of the second semester. One of the projects the club conducted this year was
the Junior-Senior debate, which was capably handled by members of the organization.
Officers were elected as follows: Donald Clark. president: William Fisher, vice-
president: Blanche Wolpert, secretary: and Irvin Dreher, librarian. Meetings were held
each week when topics which were to be used in the contest were discussed.
On Wednesday, March l9, tryouts for the annual contest were held. and two mem-
bers from each class picked to speak in the public contest.
Stewart Johnston and Donald Clark represented the seniors. Emmett Below and Erd-
man Bassett the juniors, Maybelle Stevenson the sophomores. and Clarence Marmes and
Harold Klessig the freshmen.
Those who won places on Vfednesday, March 24. were: Donald Clark, first: Stewart
Johnston. second: and Emmett Below, third.
Much credit for the progress of the extemporaneous speaking club is due Miss Mary
Keating, who acted as critic, Her earnest endeavor in this type of speaking has made
it possible for extemporaneous speaking to be substituted for oratory, in debate, and
other spee:h work, Extemporaneous speaking is much more effective and is much

Jones. Marjory Canfield. and Blanche XVolpert: of the boys: Donald Clark, James
Weeks, and Kenneth Popkey.
At the finals. which were held on the twenty-fourth of March, Blanche Wolpert re-
ceived first for the girls and Kenneth Popkey first for the boys.
At the girls' contest in New London, Blanche Wolpert won Hrst place. The school
wishes her the same success in the coming contests.

After winning the league and district contests last spring. Blanche XVolpert took first
place in the final declamatory contest held at Madison on May 30. 1925. with the
declamation "Mon Pierre." The Antigo high school is extremely proud of Blanche's
success. and we take this opportunity to express our congratulations to her.
On Monday. March 2, the declamatory finals were held in the high school auditor-

The freshman declamatory tryouts were held on Friday. March 19. From several
contestants. Janet McCarthy and Mary Ellen Janes were chosen to represent their class
in the final contest.
The sophomore tryout was held Tuesday. March 16. Seven sophomore girls par-
ticipated in the contest. Only two were chosen. however. for the nnal contest, these
being Alice Sleeter and Catherine Morse. Owing to illness, Catherine Morse was unable
to be present in the finals, and Mary Kelly, being next highest. took her place.
Neither the juniors nor seniors had preliminary contests. as only two members from
each class entered the contest. The juniors were Arleen Van Doren and Fern XX'in-
centsen. The seniors were represented by Dorothy O'Donnell and Carol Bishop.
The nnal contest attracted unusual attention, and the auditorium was filled. A banner
was presented to the class of which the winner was a member. Alice Sleeter was given
first place in the hnals with the selection. "Yellow Butterflies." Carol Bishop received
second honors with the declamation. "The Flower Shop." Third place was given to
Mary Ellen Janes. speaking "The Bear Story."
The winners of first and second places were present at the league contest held at Clin-
tonville. Friday. April 9. Carol Bishop took first place. which entitles her to represent
us at the sub-district contest to be held April 23.

SCPHOMORE DRAMA CLUBS
The senior class is not the only class to boast of a dramatic club .for, in the fall, the
sophomores also organized their drama clubs which have proved to be a great suc-
cess. All sophomores who were interested in this type of work tried out. and those
chosen were divided into two groups. Miss Adams had charge of the Powder and Paint
Club which elected officers as follows:
President - - - John Collins
Secretary - - Harold Bessey
Business Manager William Flatley
Librarian - Marquette Healy
Stage Manager - - - Dick McMullen
Mr. Moran had charge of the Silver Wig section of the drama club whose officers
were as follows:
President Forrest Wanninger
Secretary - Bob Yaeger
Librarian - Lorraine Matthias
Stage Manager - - - William Merrill
On the same evening that the Masque and Wig Club gave their four one-act plays.
the Powder and Paint Club verv successfully presented "The Ghost Story" by Booth
Both groups held regular meetings every Monday night. The club has been very
successful and doubtless will be continued in the future.

MASQUE AND WIG
One of the most successful clubs and. judging from the large membership, the most
popular is the Masque and XVig drama club which was organized early last fall. At the
first meeting, the club elected officers as follows:
President - - - Lucille McKinnon
Vice-President - Marie Flatley
Secretary-Treasurer - - - Carol Bishop
During the course of the year, the Masque and Wig have been very successful in pre-
senting their plays. On March 12, the Alpha group of the club entertained the D. A. R.
with the play. "Suppressed Desires," and on the last Friday before Christmas vacation
the Beta group entertained the high school with the Christmas play entitled "The Toy
Shop." The plays. "Mechanical Jane" and "Two Slatterns and a King," were given
in a program for the mothers of the girls in Miss Keating's advisory group.
On March 5, the Masque and XVig also presented the following one-act plays: "My
Dear," "Difference In Clocks," "At the Movies," and "Two Crooks and a Lady." The
plays were very interesting. and the players did exceptionally well in their interpretation
of the parts.
Much of the credit for the successful work done by the club must go to Miss Keating
and Miss Harrison. under whose supervision the club worked.

This organization goes on from year to year with a steady improve-
ment. The club has favored us several times in the main assembly with
very good selections. Everyone wishes they would sing oftener.
Think of the enthusiasm there must be back of this club to prompt
them once each week to leave their downy beds and speed to the school for
seven-thirty o'clock practice. lt is no wonder that their singing wins the
approval of all when so much spirit is put into it.

We all know how many good voices there are in the boys' glee club.
We only Wish that the occasions on which We heard them Weren't so
rare. But all in all we are very satisfied with the showing they make.

lt is certain that work in this division of the music department has
been of benefit to the members. Unlimited talent is shown in everything
in which they participate. Miss Mabel Verhulst is the director.

Probably the most prominent organization in school is the band. There is something
particularly novel about having a band in Antigo. This is perhaps because we never
dreamed of having one before this year. XVe can feel that the formation of this organ-
ization is one of the main achievements of the year. It will undoubtedly become better
with leaps and bounds in the future. judging from the present enthusiasm. Our band
will very soon prove to be a great asset to our school because it will inspire us with
pep for all our activities.
Many of us have stayed in the main room on Thursday and Friday nights and heard
the band practice under the direction of Mr. Phillips. They play very well. and we are
all anxiously awaiting the time when they will give their first public performance.

This year there has come into our school a new club. It is the club formed by the
senior French class. The meetings haven't been restricted to the discussion of French
architecture, art, literature, and customs, although these things were given some study.
Programs consisting of French musical numbers and plays have been enjoyed. The
French dinner given in April, which was a very sumptuous affair. was the climax of
their many parties. Of course, at all these meetings and events. everyone had to parle.
parle. and parle in the beautiful tongue of France.

An interesting light is being thrown on mathematics through this new math club.
According to all reports. quite lively times are had at the weekly meetings. Everyone
interested should join a club of this sort because a broader understanding of mathematics
is derived therefrom. Seventy-five students responded to the call of the Hrst meeting.
This is a very large number for a club so new. With this successful beginning, Alpha
Gamma ought soon to win an important place in the list of high school organizations.

What would we do without the orchestra which is ever willing to lend its services
on every occasion? And proud we can be of its ability, as there is much talent dis-
played therein. The orchestra has played for our main room assembly. our contests of all
sorts, our dances, our operetta, and even for our movies. '
Too many of us do not realize the work put into the making of an orchestra. There
must be faithful and steady practice the year through. The members of our club have
done their job well. They have kept up the long-standing reputation of musical ability
displayed by our high school orchestras.

On This Day of Days-
Happencd the senior spread. It was gorgeous! Cl'm glad my English teacher can't
read my diary.3 It was the last one we'll ever have a chance to remember, and there's
so much to remember, too! First, we all came in costumes of different kinds. You
could see cowboys, little girls, Chinamen, sailors, and almost every conceivable nation-
ality. Even an Egyptian visited the scene.
In the beginning, games were played, and a pie-eating contest was partaken of by
some of the men teachers and senior boys. We wondered why our principal had such
an aversion to blueberry pie.
We danced to most heavenly music before we ate, and then did we eat! Mrs. Fehlandt
surely knows how to make good sandwiches and such oodles of them.
We all went home happy, but. oh! with such a lost feeling in our hearts to think we
never could have such a time like that again: but then, it's always fun to remember.

The juniors all came to the gym last night, costumed and masked. The faculty far
surpassed the juniors in originality of costumes. Miss English as a Christmas tree. Miss
Daskam as Amelia from the pickle factory, and Mr. Moran as an Indian were the life
of the party.
After dancing for several hours, during which confetti, horns, and rattles were dis-
tributed. lunch consisting of sandwiches, salad, pickles, ice cream, cake, and cocoa was
served. About eleven-thirty everybody went home claiming that it was the best party
January 30, 1926
The sophomores had their party last night, and from the sounds I think they had a
really spiffy time. Here it is the middle of winter, but they had a summer party. Every-
body came all dressed up-the fellows in flannels and the girls in fluffy summer dresses.
lt was lucky they could make believe it was warm, 'cause I bet some of them almost
froze getting there. But after they got there it was all right, because they fit right into
the scenery, which was a lovely veranda on a summer evening.
They had a clever stunt-the sophomores always were a peppy bunch anyway-it
was a take-off on the famous Murton boarding house. A good many of the teachers
saw themselves as others see them.
After the stunt, they danced, and, just think, they didn't stop dancing until eleven-
thirty! Isn't that dreadful! What is the younger generation coming to?

Then they ate. I guess it was awfully good, to hear them tell about it. There were
sandwiches and lemonade first, then ice cream and little green and white cakes with a
'28 on each one. Here's hoping the '28 is as lucky as its sister, '26.
Everyone went home saying he had had the time of his life.

Oh! They let me peek in at the Frosh with all their pep last night, and they were
having such a good time playing three deep.
Then they had some races. You see, diary of mine, it was a county fair, so races
came in the natural course of events. One was an obstacle race. There were four
couples, each one had to put on certain clothes from a suitcase, then carry an umbrella,
chair, suitcase. and a few more things down to the opposite end of the gym, take them
all off. put them back into the suitcase and come back to the start. It certainly was a
treat to see "Micky" McCormick put on his overalls.
The kiddy-car race by the tallest boys and girls in the class also furnished the freshies
with much fun.
But I really was surprised at the talent displayed by the Frosh boys in putting on
their musical comedy. I never saw such realistic chorus girls.
Later they danced. and then the "eats" were served in paper bags, with bottles of
All the freshies went home happy after a night's revelry.
That's all I have for this time, diary, but I had such a good time out of it.

My Dear Diary:
I feel so old today because I'm almost an alumna-almost out of high school! I
can hardly make myself believe it.
I went to my Hrst alumni reception tonight and certainly enjoyed it. The programme
came first. and it consisted of an address of welcome by President Horace Kellogg, the
senior response by our worthy president, Edwin Williams, readings by Mrs. Engle
which were so greatly enjoyed that she was forced to give four encoresg and Mr. Fred
Berner gave some reminiscences which were especially interesting.
After the secretary, Mr. M. Olk, gave his report, there was the election of officers.
Mrs. James Collins was elected president and Mr. Ted Dvorak, secretary.
Soon the gathering adjourned to the gym where Tobey's orchestra played for danc-
ing the rest of the evening.
Oh, I almost forgot! Punch was served to keep everybody cool all evening.

My last prom in high school is a thing of the ages now. but it was heavenly enough
to supply material for day-dreams for at least fifty years.
We all went to Venice in a great big gondola to enjoy the most delightful evening
of the year. It's loads of fun when you can be whisked to as romantic a place as that
for a whole evening.
Many helped to make this lovely Venice for us. Marjorie Canfield planned the
gondola. Joe Mullen had charge of the ceiling that had the light for us to see by, and
planned the little balconies with window boxes all around the second story, too. The
lighting effect was so clever--there were small lanterns, the kind one always sees in
Venice, placed in the arches. This was done by John Dolsen. Even when one is in a
romantic place like that, one gets thirsty, so there was a regular fairy something to
drink that was called punch. Wilma Peterson was in charge of that. Tommy Durfee
planned the booths from which they served the punch. Folks say he's awfully witty.
but he must be artistic, too, because the booths were most attractive. Of course, when
we got tired dancing, there was a place for us to sit down. Under the balconies were
big easy chairs for the fair ladies and footstools for their escorts. This plan was all
worked out by Arleen Van Doren. The music was superb! I'm sure I should love
to go to Venice every night if I could hear music like that. Thelma Berner and Dan
Driscoll arranged for that and also the little programmes they gave us to keep our dances
straight. Around the edge of the room. covered with wisteria, were lattice work arches
supported by pillars. All this building was supervised by Harold McGinnis. "Punk"
Marx had charge of the walls which resembled those of a portico with colonnades and
windows quite different from those we are used to seeing.
Of course, the lords and ladies wanted to show off their fine laces and brocaded satins.
so we had a grand march. The queen of this ball was Marion Below. She and the
prom chairman, Lester Maxson, led the march. It was most solemn and dignified. but
I enjoyed it immensely.
The patrons and patronesses of the evening were: Mr. and Mrs. Waddell. Mr. and
Mrs. Maxson, Mr. and Mrs. Miller. Mr. and Mrs. Roehm, Mr. and Mrs. Peterson, Mr.
and Mrs. Below, Mr. and Mrs. Canfield, Mr. and Mrs. Van Doren. and Mr. and Mrs.
After it was all over, we left Venice and went to eat merry mixups to our heart's

POETRY CONTEST i
A poetry contest was conducted in our high school this year by the Antigonian staff.
Each edition carried some of the poems entered. The contest was open to all students
of the high school, and there was no restriction as to the number contributed by each
contestant. About forty poems were entered and ten of these were exceptionally well
The contest was judged by Miss Adams, Miss Marston, and Miss Bryan.
Bertha Reeves, a senior, was awarded first and also third place, and Margaret Brenner,
a sophomore, received second place. Mable Anderson received honorable mention.
Collections of poems were given as awards. Bertha Reeves received Untermeyer's
"The Singing World," and Margaret Brenner received "Dawn," an anthology of student
The winning poetry follows:
There is promise in the distance.
Far and faint but sweet it calls.
Telling of an endless freedom
Not enclosed by narrow walls:
Telling of a world of living
All untouched by petty strife,
With its bright, enchanting promise
Of a better, freer life.
There's a charm that comes from distance.
From beyond the meadows far:
There's a lure beyond the sunset
And where shadowy forests are.
Oh, it beckons me to follow,
Where I know not, but it seems
That beyond this boundless distance
Lies the land of all my dreams.
THE WORLD'S CLOAK
The winter set in cold and hard,
And snow fell from the sky.
While Mr. World put on his cloak
To keep him warm and dry.
The cold wind howled among the trees
And drifted snow banks high,
While Jack Frost with his painting brush
Drew pictures on the sly.

Not long could winter reign supreme.
For soon the World awoke,
And, looking at the calendar.
He quickly changed his cloak.
A lovely, light. pink suit he wore,
And called the southern breeze:
Then drove away the North XVind
Some other land to freeze,
Cold today. and the crisp. clear air
Makes fleecy columns everywhere:
Sparkling with glistening gem. the snow
Reflects the glitter of the sun's bright glow.
As a summer's sky is the sky's clear hue.
But the warmth is gone. it's a hard, cold blue.
Like pale blue marble the frozen lake lies
Hard and immue from the blue of the skies:
While the bare. gaunt trees stand still' and still.
Silent and frozen as the snow-clad hill.
Now the sparkling stream is a silver thread.
And its banks of green are white instead.
Across the meadows of snow-drift dunes
The hazy purple of the mountain looms
With the only color to be seen-
The rich. deep splash of the evergreen.
Yet beneath the frozen cloak of all winter's array
There's a vivid life lurking. though it's cold today.
From the snowy depths of winter
Came a warm. enchanting spring.
Rousing. with her birds and flowers,
A new hope in everything.
Chased away our petty sorrows,
Showed us how to live anew,
Bathed us in her wondrous beauty.
Made us young and happy too.
Taught us it was worth while living.
. For to all our troubles here
There will sometime be an ending.
Just as spring comes every year.

A RACE FOR LIFE
"There stands my murderer!" With these words on his lips, Judge Pemberton
passed away. The accused was the judge's nephew, a young man of twenty-one years
of age. His sister, Jean, stood beside him in the wildest amazement, only conscious of
the words of the dying man and of his pointing to Derry.
Stunned for the moment, Derry stood motionless: then realizing what it all meant, he
cried, "How can he die with those lying words on his lips! Oh, Jean, you do not
believe him? Tell me, tell me, Jean, that you believe me innocent!"
Derry and Jean were orphans and had been living with their uncle. Judge Pemberton.
The judge and Derry had had a misunderstanding that day and both had spoken many
Hery words. As a result. Derry had resolved to leave his uncle's house.
Late that night, when he was packing, he heard his uncle scream, and, rushing into
his room, he found him lying upon the floor, a dagger beside him. He stooped to pick
up the dagger just as Jean entered the room. It was then that the judge opened his
eyes and, seeing Derry with the knife behind him, believed him to be his murdered. As
a natural result, Derry was imprisoned.
Days passed and finally the trial started. These were days of great fear and fore-
boding for Derry and Jean. The circumstances were against Derry and they both real-
ized this, but they did not give up hope. Jean spent all her time at the jail trying to
cheer and comfort Derry. She was brave so she kept his spirits up. As the trial wore
on, hope began to ebb for the brother and sister-the judge's dying words seemed all
that was necessary to condemn Derry.
In his weakest moments Derry would say, "Oh, Jean, what can I do? I am innocent.
you know I am innocent. but how can I prove it? I can see no way out of it, but, oh.
to die as a murderer!" These were the moments when Jean needed all the courage she
She would answer lovingly, "Derry, dear, all we can do is to hope and pray for the
best. God will help us somehow. He knows you are innocent, and He is too good and
too just to let you die as a murderer." Thus she spoke, though her heart was breaking.
for she began to realize the fruitlessness of trying to prove Derry's innocence.
Finally the last day came, and it was a pitiful sight to see the brother and sister, so
dear to one another, pale and haggard and almost hopeless. The verdict came. The
judge read, "Guilty! The criminal is sentenced to be hanged." There seemed to be a
slight murmur of discontent among the crowd, for everyone pitied these two-so young
From that time the days passed quickly, and the time drew nearer for the execution.
Derry had given up all hope, but Jean was resolved not to give up. She wrote to the

A ' 'K1aacG me Q
governor, "Can't you please spare my brother's life? He is all I have, and I know he
is innocent. Pardon him and some day we will prove his innocence. But if you take
his life-remember-you are taking the life of an innocent man!"
All her efforts seemed to be in vain and Derry would try to make her realize this, but
she was resolved to save him at any cost.
The day before the execution arrived. The governor's sister was to be buried in a
small village thirty miles from the county jail on the day of the execution. This news
reached Jean and she resolved. as a final attempt. to go there and make one last plea
to the governor.
The hour of the execution was set for three o'clock on Friday. Early in the morning
of that day she set out for the village-it was the village where her uncle had lived.
When she got there she ordered one of the servants to have Rocket harnessed and ready
for her at any minute. Rocket was a thoroughbred, well-known throughout the coun-
try for his fleetness and endurance. He was the fastest runner that ever set foot upon
the turf. Then she went to the house of mourners to await the arrival of the governor.
It was about a quarter of two when the governor's carriage was seen in the distance.
As Jean stood on the step, waiting breathlessly, a man made his way through the crowds
and. stumbling up to Jean, cried, "Are you Judge Pemberton's niece?"
"Yes," she said.
Then the man, almost distracted, cried, "For God's sake, save your brother's life!
He is innocent-I killed Judge Pemberton! Here are the proofs," and he handed her
a bundle of papers. Just then he breathed his last and fell upon the ground.
When the governor's carriage drew up. Jean frantically ran to meet him and, giving
him the paper, cried. "Give me a pardon for my brother! There lies the murderer!"
The governor hastily glanced over the papers and said, "Alas, I'm afraid it is too
late!" Then, in a louder tone, "I will give a reward of live hundred dollars to the
man who will save this young boy's life."
XVhereupon three young men mounted three of the fastest horses and started for the
place of execution-a chestnut. a black, and a bay.
Then Jean. falling on her knees before the governor, pleaded, "Please give me a
pardon, that I may reach the place on time."
The governor looked at her in surprise.
"XVhat could you do. my dear?"
And, looking toward the road, he saw the three horses quickly disappearing.
"I fear even they will be too late. May God speed them on their way."

But Jean was not satisfied, "Please, I cannot leave my brother's life to strangers."
The governor smiled, but he gave her a pardon to satisfy her. Then quickly she
ran to the stables and in a flash she and Rocket were off.
It was now two o'clock, and Rocket seemed to realize all that depended on him as he
started off, putting forth his best efforts. His long strides made every step faster than
the last. Jean leaned down in her saddle and patted Rocket's neck, saying. "Rocket,
we must make it! Derry must be saved! On! On!"
Soon they were over the hill, leaving the village behind, and as they sped along they
discerned the bay far ahead. On, on they went, faster and faster, until finally they
passed the bay and left it far behind.
"On, on, Rocket, every minute means life or death to Derry." and again the iron-grey
It was now two-thirty, when suddenly they saw the black ahead, traveling at great
speed. At last the iron-gray came abreast the black, and as though this was a chal-
lenge, he gave a spurt and they were off. On they went and still the jail was not in sight.
A quarter of three, and far ahead they saw the chestnut and its bold rider. As Rocket
overtook the chestnut, Jean noticed that horse almost fatigued-foaming at the mouth
and all but sweating blood. Just as the iron-gray came abreast the chestnut, that horse
stumbled, fell, and hurled its rider from its back. Now everything depended on Rocket.
So on and on they went.
In the meantime a great crowd had gathered around the place of execution. At ten
minutes of three Derry was led to the platform and his last words were with the chaplain.
The sheriff stood beside him, looking toward the distant hill-he had promised the last
minute to Jean. The time slipped on, minute by minute. The tower clock showed
five minutes of three and the hands moved on. The black cap was drawn over Derry's
face, the noose was ready, when suddenly, like a ship on the horizon, a horse and rider
appeared on the top of the hill. The sheriff was almost exultant-he knew it must be
Jean. On and on came this fleet horse and his noble rider. As they drew near they
noticed her waving something in the air.
Just as the clock in the tower began to strike, Jean jumped from her horse and made
her way through the crowd. The noble iron'gray could not rejoice with the crowd.
for his great task was finished and, bereft of his rider. he fell.
The sheriff read the pardon aloud and as the clock finished striking the black cap was
withdrawn. Amid shouts and cheers, Derry was restored to Jean.

Mrs. Carnes was a woman of resources. That she was helping live sons through
high school and college, with only their father's slender salary as a bookkeeper to help
their own earnings, showed this. But the way she disciplined these tive sons was an
even more vivid illustration. She seemed never to resort to harshness and yet her control
amazed the neighborhood.
For two weeks of this vacation the sons had been home, earning money for the coming
year, and their mother was not exactly pleased with them. It seemed to her that they
had grown much too fond of complaining at real or fanciful ills and that they were
abusing even a college student's privilege of slang. This particular Sunday had aroused
'iMother, why on earth did you roast us out so early-no Sunday school for mine."
"Bacon and eggs every day, six months on a stretch, twice a year, makes me weary."
"What the cleuce did you fellows do with my pipe?"
"By Jove, you can't put a thing down in this place without employing a detective
to trace it," grumbled Carl.
"Mother, I wish you'd tell these sons of yours to leave a clean towel in the bathroom
occasionally," said father, just entering the room.
Mother's eyes began to flash. "Boys," she said, 'Tm not a complaint bureau and I
can't handle so many complaints in one day. I'm going to appoint a grumble day for
each of you. On that day I shall expect you to present all your troubles to the assembled
family, who will keep silent. For the remainder of the week that person will keep quiet
and listen to someone else. Father, as the head of the family, will begin on Monday."
Father looked decidedly surprised and embarrassed. "I did not suppose I was includ-
ed in this," said he. '
The boys laughed. "Come on, Daddy, play the game," Dan said.
"We'll let Dan have Tuesday, since he's the oldest son," Mother continued "and the
others follow also according to their age--the twins, Paul and Carl can draw 'straws for
Friday and Saturday."
The boys were smiling. but they looked uneasy, as they used to when Mother was
devising some new punishment for rifling her cake box.
"There is one day left, Mother," said Paul. "Who is to have Sunday or is to escape
the general desecration?"
Mother smiled. "Well, Sunday is the Sabbath, you,,know, whereon we rest, even
from grumbling. Besides, you usually have guests on that day and I don't think they'd
quite relish your complaints."
"Ten thousand thanks for one gloomless day," said Paul, bowing elaborately. With
accurate aim. John sent a balled-up napkin in his direction.
"But," continued Mother, "on Monday I shall take your father's place and grumble
in my behalf." A groan arose from all.
"That's the day I have an engagement away from home," asserted Dan. "Just think
of Mother's grumbling!" A chorus of assent followed.
"No," said Mother firmly, "after l am compelled to listen to you all week. surely you
will play the game squarely and hear my complaints!"
Then a queer week began. "XVhat did you mean by swiping my tie-pins last night,
IK l UNI' ULN-IRl'l FINI-
Carl?" John grumbled in surly greeting to his brother as he came late to the breakfast
table Monday morning.
"Close up!" came a chorus. "This is Dad's day."
The odd look on Dad's face brought an uproar of laughter. to which Daddy himself
finally yielded. It seemed to do him good, too, for he brought home some jolly stories
and told them at dinner and supper, and appeared in better spirits than in years.
Queerly, Dan didn't seem to find anything to grumble over Tuesday morning, and
during the rest of the day, when a complaint did rise to his lips. he found himself oddly
embarrassed to make it plain before the expectant audience.
And so it was through the week: every man of them was afraid to grumble on his
own day, because of his family's ridicule, and could not on other days because of its
forbiddance. Day in and day out it was continuous fun for the boys-this humorous
situation. They soon began to find a new zest in living-liking their home and its
So Sunday came, and not one of rest for Mother either. The sons had brought guests,
so Mother's time was filled with tasks to be done. The sons did not grumble after the
week of discipline, but their belongings were everywhere but in their own place,
and mother sighed as she thought of their still being there on Monday, but still
she smiled. Following a custom they had fallen into since coming home this vacation.
the boys slept a bit late on Monday morning and straggled tardily down into the dining
room one by one. But there was no mother to be found downstairs and no sign of
activity in the kitchen. The boys stared at one another blankly. Presently father entered.
"Why, boys, where is your mother? Is she sick?"
Instantly they all rushed upstairs, with such a roar as only masculine feet can make,
to Mothers room. Mother was dressed and sitting calmly, reading.
"What the deuce do you mean rushing in like this?" she asked.
Frank and Carl nudged one another. That wasn't a nice expression and Mother so
often asked the boys to refrain from using it. They all looked embarrassed.
"Why, Mother, we thought you were sick."
Mother looked at them. "By clove." she said, fDan and Paul blushed. After all.
that was a silly expression.j 'gif one of you wouldn't be a girl, I don't see why all of

twice a year, just to cook breakfast for a bunch of men makes me weary."
It shocked them to hear Mother talk so. They had always taken their breakfast as a
matter of course. They started at their task and soon made a good mess of things.
Soon she was down with them--to their intense joy-making order and getting some-
thing to eat.
When they were all seated at the breakfast table she started talking again, but in such
a sad voice it brought tears to her sons' eyes.
"When I think of the nights I have sat long hours sewing that my boys might have
as good clothing as other children: when I think of extra bookkeeping your father has
strained his eyes over-" She stopped. The boys had had enough. But mother was
crying softly. Amidst the confusion, Dan's voice rang out, "I move we abolish Grumble
"Until we need it again," added Mother.
"We won't need it again," they promised.
On Tuesday morning the Carnes home wore a different air. lt was tidy in early
morning for possibly the first time in years. The boys had all done their share.

The Antigo High School alumni association was organized in 1886.
This was just one year after the establishment of the high school. The
first member of this association was Miss Agnes Donohue. who graduated
in 1885. During the past forty years the membership of the association
has increased steadily until at the present time there are nearly lifteen hun-
dred members enrolled under its banner.
The Antigo High School has become well known throughout the state
by the great achievements of its alumni. Many of the members of A.
H. S. have met with great success, and others are making their way rapid-
ly toward that goal.
It would take too long to trace back and tell what has become of all of
our loyal alumni, so in these few pages we shall speak of the success that
has come to many and of that coming to others.
First of all we will think about our faculty in Antigo. Theresa Dris-
coll, supervisor of city schools, graduated with the class of '97, Margaret
Daskam, '15 and Esther English, '11, are both teaching mathematics in
the high school, while Lorraine Hopkins, '22, is teaching in the voca-
tional school. Elizabeth Healy, '08, is supervisor of the county schools.
Others teaching in the grades throughout the city are Patricia Garrity, '19,
Margaret Kavanaugh, '89, Roxia Baxter, '00, Goldie Madsen, '19, Lynda
Klessig, '20, Julia Wade, '13, Margaret Manthey, '14, and Georgia Latta.
Many of the business and professional men of Antigo are alumni of
the high school, namely: Lawyer White, '09, Dr. M. J. Donohue, '91, Dr.
E. J. Donohue, '98, Dr. Steffen, '05, Doctor Healy, '14, Dr. Boll, '15, and
Dr. Gillis, '13, Merrit Olk, '21, and Fred L. Berner, '98. Many of the
recent graduates are working in Antigo at the present time-making their
start with some of the above business and professional men, or with oth-
ers. In time they will be leading citizens of Antigo and will be pointed
out as successful alumni.
Others of the recent graduating classes are attending colleges or other
higher places of learning throughout the country, and we wish them the
best of luck in all they undertake. We have many good examples of
what some of these people are doing. For instance, the two McKinnon
' eil!-GRADUATE 1
boys, Arlo from the class of '22 and Cyril from '21, are well known for
their debating and oratorical ability displayed at Marquette. They have
both traveled with the Marquette Glee Club. At present Cyril is making
an extensive trip through the British Isles and Europe. Interesting ar-
ticles written by him describing his trip have appeared in the Milwaukee
Journal. Thinking of these boys and Marquette immediately brings
reminiscences of the achievements of some of our alumni in basketball and
football. There are "Bill" Curran, '22, "Dick" Craine, '22, "Micky"
McCormick, '22, who have all distinguished themselves in these lines.
They were always outstanding in athletics.
Last fall Margaret Stewart, '23, who is attending La Crosse Normal
School, was chosen to be one of the representatives to the World Court of
Colleges at Prnceton, New Jersey.
We have often come across accounts noting the fine work of Neal Thay-
er and Gustav Winter at the University of Wisconsin. Both of these
fellows graduated in '23. Asher Treat, who graduated in '25, and who
is attending the University is a member of the University Band. Just
recently we heard that a member of the class of '20, Blanche Reising, is
assistant chemistry teacher at the University. These are just a few of
Some of the alumni have taken to travel. Agnes Norem of the class of
'23, who is attending Lawrence College, made a trip to Europe last sum-
mer and can relate many pleasing and delightful accounts of her tour.
Mary Wright, '19, Kathleen Wright, and Margaret Collins, both of '21
have been spending the winter in Florida. They made the trip by auto-
mobile. Mary Edith McKinnon of the class of '25 is spending some
time at present in the East.
Besides these there are many who have already met their fate by taking
the last and final step-matrimony. We cannot begin to enumerate in
this list-not even the recent ones-because the number is exceedingly
large. We will only say that we hope they are happy and that they may
have all the joys life can give them.
Before leaving we will just cast one thought backward to our beloved
alumni who have already left us and have crossed the Great Divide.
Though they will never return, their memory will live on forever with
those who knew them.

THE LOST PULICIDUS
Seated one day on the door-mat.
I was weary and full of fleas.
And a hind leg wandered idly,
Scratching me all. by degrees.
I thought they were subjugated-
Things seemed to be going well:
Then came at once, behind my neck.
A bite, and it hurt like--everything!
I did a sitting high jump,
With a jack-knife dive to the rear:
I howled like a hound of the Baskervilles.
And pounded the porch with an ear.
I never have felt him since that time-
My heavyweight champion flea-
I wonder if he is in heaven,
Or if he may still worry me.

Stude: Which is the more useful to

GRADUATE "N 2
CLASS OF '26
Here l have written, may it pass.
The high school history of my class.
As a humble acorn our glass began,
The class I mean. guess you can.
And all the bumping the acorns get,
We freshmen got, but did not fret,
For it did seem but just a while-
XVhen we advanced in sapling style.
NVith sophomore flourish we faster grew,
Growing on large leaves and branches too.
And as we climbed for light and sun,
Lo! Our troubles were just begun.
Sprang up ice sleets, gave great pains,
We learned troubles, worked our brains.
And as time flew, so we went
Under heavy odds, yet all content.
Came one great day when we awoke,
Our class had grown into an oak.
We were the leaves: each waving breeze
Gave us knowledge, seemed to tease.
But as the year grew in days,
Soon we learned the weather's ways.
Since we were large enough to stop
The harsh storm winds. whirled like a top,
We soon received such awful blows
That made us quiver to our toes.
'Twas just a teacher, so people say,
To aid us fight life's greater way.
So we were buffered in wind and gale,
By sleet and snow, rain and hail.
During these tests, to our sorrow,
Some leaves came not on the morrow.
The strife was heavy, they fell below
The whip of knowledge as if from blows.
The rest stood staunch, won the test,
And so passed onward for a rest.
Time more than flew: of senior year,
The end was far, yet very near.
The joys we knew, we cherished more:
Our hearts at leave were very sore.
Then came the day the leaves were shed,
And to each other fond farewells said.
While the oak's broad trunk, made into sticks,
Formed the alumni of TWENTY-SIX.
