These hearts were woven of human joys and cares,
Washed marvellously with sorrow, swift to mirth.
The years had given them lfindness. Dawn was theirs,
And sunset, and the colors of the earth.
These had seen movement, and heard musicg lgnown
Slumber and walfingg lovedg gone proudly friendedp
Felt the quick stir of wonder, sat alone,
Touched flowers and furs, and eheelfs. All this is ended.
There are waters blown by changing winds to laughter
And lit by the rich skies, all day. And after,
Frost, with a gesture, stays the waves that dance
And wandering loveliness. He leaves a white
Unbrolfen glory, a gathered radiance,
A width, a shining peace, under the night.

ln the rolling river valley,
Wliere the Fox Hows by,
A famous high school rears the banner
'iAppleton" on high.
There the thin blue smoke is trailing
From the altar's fire,
Incense to our alma mater,
Floating ever higher.
Mother, loyal sons and daughters
Scattered through the world,
Strive to keep her glorious standard
To the breeze unfurled.
Sing her praises through the valley
Send them ringing on!
Do great deeds for alma mater,

Over twenty-five years ago, one winter morning when the thermometer registered
below zero, the citizens of Appleton awoke to find the old Ryan High School a
smouldering ruin. Up to that time, there had been no semblance of a union system of
schools, for the thirdi fourth, and second wards each supported an independent high
school. With the burning of the Ryan High, a great adjustment was necessary. The
citizens decided to have one union high school of size sufhcient to accommodate the
youth of the city. Those men of greater vision, among whom was Mayor Frank W.
Harriman, insisted on a building large enough to accommodate three hundred fifty or
four hundred pupils: but they thought it would be many a year before the student body
would reach that mark.
During the period of the construction of the new union building four present onel
classes were held in various buildings about the city. The students enjoyed little
journeys to the theater, city hall, and other build-
ingsg but we wonder how much else they accom-
lished and how the teachers survived.
In the early days of the union system liter-
ary and debating societies were in vogue. The
girls' society, lVlinervias, had among its early
7 members Esther Erb, Enid Saecker, and Flor-
ence Ross. Agora, literary and debating society
for both boys and girls, also elected the debate
teams. Doubtless many ponderous questions too
deep for more mature brains were definitely and
hnally settled by these groups.
For entertainment, plays, debates, dances,
and athletics held the attention. ln l906, a vau-
deville was given: the admission was twenty-five
cents, expenses were one hundred eighty dollars,
and the profit was eighty dollars. Girls as well
as boys participated in interscholastic basketball.
ln 1906, the boys held the state basketball cham-
pionship. The Hyde Declamatory Contest, the
Keller Oratorical Contest, and later the Heiss
Memorial Contest sponsored by the class of I9I 6
in honor of William Heiss who lost his life in the
'T--:L World War, were very prominent. In l905,
Mae Spencer won first place in a declamatory
contest in Chicagog in l907, Florence Canavan won a similar honor. During these
years the basketball teams captured championships occasionally and always played well.
On October 26, 1911, President Taft visited Appleton. The student body
marched to the campus of Lawrence College where from the steps of main hall the
president addressed the citizens.
About l9I I-IZ, the methods of dancing began to change. The pupils had been
enjoying the old-fashioned two-step and waltz, with variations such as the circular
two-step, broom waltz, and rye waltz. Then the Boston and tango appeared, much to
the consternation of the more dignified and staid elders. The occasional boy and girl
who dared brave the stares and comments of the chaperones were branded as belonging
to the "fast" set. The parties, as a whole, were very simple. ln the fall, the annual
loved "Cap" Harris. uCap" has been in the

"walk-around" whose purpose was to
introduce the freshmen to the upper
classes started the social season. Class
parties were held in the gymnasium and
were very inexpensive. Dancing com-
menced at seven and stopped at ten
o'clock. Then there was the junior
prom. Until the crowds outgrew it,
these functions were held in Harmonie
Hall: then in the armory. The decor-
ations were most elaborate. The danc-
ing began with a grand march led by
faculty members and prominent stu-
dents. The girls always had new
dresses, flowers, and were escorted to
the party in a Uhackn.
The "Clarion" First appeared as
a monthly publication of magazine na-
ture. The youth of the times blos-
somed forth in poetry and prose in
these pages. The last number of the
year was more pretentious and was
called a "senior" number. ln l9l3,
this number was dedicated to our be-
school as engineer for twenty-live years
and has been much beloved by each generation. At one time, he was so popular that
lVlr. Keller forbade the boys' going to the boiler roomy whereupon, they drew a line across
the doorway and decorated it with a skull and cross bones. During this past year, the
school celebrated HCap's" eightieth birthday.
As the ears mass, man new activities a ear which show rowth and ex ansion.
ln IOI4, the idea of the scho
presented annually to the class
which during the year has
shown the best spirit in every
way. ln I9I4, a school bank
with student officers was es-
tablished. Since then it has
been taken over by Thrift, ln-
eorporated, in cooperation
with the First National Bank
of the city, For a few years,
an organization known as the
Amateur Press Club flour-
ished. Ardent youths who as-
pired to achieve literary suc-
cess satislied their ambitions
in the pages of their maga-
zine. lVlr. lVloe was the prime
mover, with Alfred Galpin
and Margaret Abraham also
ol spirit cup was inaugurated. Since then a cup has been
rampant. May-Day also had a place in the extra-curriculars for a time. A lVlaypole
was erected on the east lawn, and about it frisked, more or less gracefully, most of the
girls in vivid costumes.
ln the winter of l9l 7, a unique project was undertaken by the home economics de-
partment. The girls, directed by lVliss Fern l-loag, adopted and cared for a baby girl.
The entire school was greatly interested in the child.
As the school grew, need was felt for a newspaperg so the "Talisman,' was started
as a weekly publication appearing every Tuesday. At the same time, the "Clarion"
was converted into an annual of rather elaborate style. The dramatics and music de-
partments were also enlarged. The
junior class play and operetta have J . -' L. N 'N I f I .

During the year of 1927-1928, a chapter of the National Honor Society was in-
stalled. The object of this society is to promote high scholarship. Seniors are elected
to membership by the faculty.
Of course, with the growth of the school has come the development of athletics.
For the past few seasons, Appleton has belonged to the Fox River Valley Conference
composed of Oshkosh, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, East C-reen Bay, VVest Green Bay,
Fond du Lac, Marinette, and Appleton. These schools participate in football, basket-
ball, track, hockey, and cross country sports. Entrance into state tournaments has been
Nor must we forget the war service of our Alma Mater. A bronze tablet placed in
the main corridor lists one hundred fifty students and teachers who took an active part in
the World War. Seven gave their lives in the cause for democracy. During the war
period, the school itself was not unaware of the conditions. Classes in the preparation of
surgical dressings, knitting sweaters and socks, and frequent letters from those at the
front were constant reminders of the great struggle.

The style in commencement programs has changed. The long, dry, original essays
formerly read by members of the graduating class have been replaced. Even the saluta-
tory and valedictory addresses have been abolished. At present, the commencement
exercises consist of a class play, class day exercises, and the commencement itself. On
class day, a pageant expressing school activities is usually presented. At this time, ath-
letic awards, typing awards, essay prizes, and the Craftsmanship Shield-the highest
honor possible-together with the awarding of other prizes are made, On commencement
night, a brief program precedes the presentation of diplomas.
As the city grew, and as people generally became more interested in education, the
once spacious building became most inadequate. It became necessary, with eleven hun-
dred students, to run
a ten period day. ln
spite of the fact that
every available space
was utilized, the sit-
uation became al-
m o s t unbearable. 5
Then another great S
change came. The
city voted to estab-
lish the union system
for schools to replace
the antiquated dis-
trict system and at
the same time it de-
cided to convert the
existing high school
into a senior school
and to erect three
junior highs. One of
NX X ..,,,.sswvwuuu
these buildings is located on the north side of the city, one on the west side, and one in
conjunction with the fourth ward school on the south side of the river. This somewhat
relieved the situation temporarily. A school day of six lifty-five minute periods with su-
pervised study was started, while things in general took on a more normal aspect. How-
ever, at present the situation is again unhappy, so that ways and means for erecting a
new building on an adequate campus are being seriously considered by the school board.
So far, no mention has been made of the principals who have so ably piloted our
Alma Mater over calm as well as rough seas. There have been but four men at the helm
for the past quarter century-a fact which speaks well for both the men and the institu-
tion. lVlr. Ralph W. Pringle entered his service when the building was new. He was
a man of manners mild, gentle ways, and much loved by the students. lVlr. P. C. W.
Keller succeeded lVlr. Pringle who went to La Grange, Illinois. lVlr. Keller impressed
the students greatly with his "fundamental principles", high ideals, staunch convictions,
and firm actions. The students soon learned that in lVlr. Keller they had a most valuable
friend. lVlr. Keller resigned to Lake a position in Waukegan and was followed by lVlr.
Lee C. Rasey. lVlr. Rasey, in turn, won the hearts of the pupils by his winning per-
sonality, sense of humor, and ability to be one of them. He left the school to enter busi-
ness. lVlr. Herbert H. Helble who has formerly taught in Appleton High School took
up lVlr. Rasey's work. His genuine interest in the youth of the age and his ability to
keep up with the rapidly changing educational methods have made him valuable to the
school and the community.
Teachers come and teachers go, and Appleton High School has had its share in the
vicissitudes of the teaching game. Perhaps, however, it has been a little more fortunate
than some in having a wealth of outstanding characters. Decima Salisbury is known
to every generation, having resigned this year after thirty-five years of service. Her in-
fluence needs no comment. Among others who have been specially dear to the students
are Rose Ellen McNevin, now Mrs. Jimmie Hayes of Chicago fwouldn't you know
she'd marry a perfectly good lrishman?D : Miss Grace Bennett of Oak! Park, Miss Calla
Guyles of Madisong the Reid sistersg Mr. Bjorklandg Mr. Moe: Miss Ethel Carter, Miss
Ada Hahn, Miss Mae Webster, and it shall have to end etc.
And, though the school has grown unbelievably, though the personnel of the fac-
ulty and student body is constantly shifting, though some have grown old and gray dur-
ing these years, it's just the same old school after all. Times change, styles change, even
faces change: but youth retains the same buoyant spirit, the same purposes, the same
ideals-in spite of some kill-joys' opinion to the contrary. And as the years pass, the
students and teachers in Appleton High School are still trying to carry on the work so
nobly begun twenty-five years ago.
Wliere are the children that we used to be,
Those golden children running down the wind,
Laden with laughter, swift hair flying free?
Wliere did youth die, and dreams escape the mind?
Over the meadows, misted aquamarine,
Over the hills we played, in sun-cool hours:
Homeward at dusk, where river-rushes lean,
And mill-lights strew the dark with yellow flowers.
Here is the winding path where clover grew
Brushing our knees with sweetness. Here our Fire
Kindled a clark flame in the eyes of you-
Here you leaned, grey-eyed, watching the fire. 5
Wliere have these golden children vanished then?
Wliere are the dreams, the laughter swift and free?
lVlust l believe these heavy-footed men,
These weary women, are reality?
We are not these at all-there is a place,
A secret place of sun and shimmering air
Beyond the dusk, further than Time or Space,
And our enchanted hours are gathered there.
We shall go back again with eager feet
Along the mysterious path to yesterday,
Dream the old dreams, feel the lost airs blow sweet
Laugh the light laughter Time has swept away.
We shall go hack, l know, for still l hear
Faint laughter through the twilight echoing clear.

Our Chielfs lpast and Present
It was late in the fall of l897 that I came to Apple-
ton as principal of the Second School District, which
included the Ryan High School. At that time there were
three other schools doing high-school work: the first offered
one yearg the fourth had two years: and the third ward
had a four-year high school.
The burning of the Ryan building seemed to be the
event that was needed to start a movement for a union high
school. Soon after the Appleton High School was
organized, l was asked to take the principalship.
To organize the work of the new high school, and
especially to bring together the two rival schools with their
various societies and activities, was a most interesting task.
The teachers that were retained from the faculties of the
two old schools worked hard to forestall all kinds of
friction and misunderstandings: and this part of the work was a complete success. lVluch
care was exercised to retain the names of societies and organizations in equal number.
"The Clarion" was inherited from the old Ryan High School. But there seemed to be
no way of combining the colors of the schools with any kind of artistic effect: hence they
were abandoned and new colors, Orange and Blue, agreed upon. ln less than a year
every vestige of the old feeling had disappeared.
I have always looked back to my work and life in Appleton as a delightful period:
and it is a pleasure to return, as we occasionally do, to see our friends.
Twenty years ago it was my pleasure to begin my
eleven years of service in Appleton High School. But,
what is time! The memory of the youth of Appleton High
during this period-their work, their play, their joy-their
sorrows-these are the worth-while things. This period
included the World War, in which many of our boys gave
their all to their countryg and one hero, Wm. Heiss, stood
He is the Known Soldier who is typical of what
youth gave to the world then. In my treasure library l
still have the many letters written to the school by the boys
"over there". Those of Wm. Heiss are especially preci-
ous. It occurred to me that possibly Appleton High School
would like to make up a memorial folder of some of these
letters. If so, I would be pleased to send some of them.
The joys of students, the happy labors of the faculty who made even "hard" sub-
jects a pleasure, my own G.l.B. group, a splendid Board of Education at Appleton,
all these give me a thrill and inspiration even now in my work, the work I dearly love.
D Q91 jr Z,
Our Chiefs lprctst and Present
While I have known the Appleton High School I
have particularly admired the wholesome enthusiasm of the
group for the finer things in student life. To me that is
the Spirit of the Appleton High School. It is at once a
tribute and an inspiration to the students, teachers, and the
homes that are represented. Cn the occasion of this
anniversary I could do no better than to urge the continu-
ation of such commendable enthusiasm.
Greetings and best wishes!
The inexorable Law of Life is GROVVTH. Nature says to Man, "Grow, or
This is as true of Civilizations and Institutions as it is of Man. The Institution
which has ceased growing, has begun to decay and die.
Our Alma Mater--the institution we all know and
love-now faces this problem of continued growth. Youth,
which believes in the truth of this natural law, will help solve
this problem. This is particularly true of our alumni, sons
and daughters of Appleton High.
In my six years of experience with Appleton High
School, this factor of growth has been noticeable above
others. Students and faculty have ever been eager to ad-
vance, to progress. Space does not permit recital of this
progress here. The Clarion Annual is an imperishable living
record of the onward march of our school.
Youth believes in climbing Upward and Onwardg never Downward and Backward.
May this be the message to be carried to the world by our twenty-fifth anniversary class-
the Class of l929.

The Bnirnzing of Ryan High School
To some, especially to those who are particularly averse to going to school day in
and day out, the burning of the school at which they regularly assemble would seem to
be a rather unusual stroke of good fortune. To others, who perhaps are a trifle more
broadminded or have a better conception of what a school is for, it would be more of a
catastrophe or at least something to stir the emotions. But disregarding the emotions
aroused I think it would prove to be an exciting time for all.
Think of leaving for school on some cold wintry morning. As you came near to
the school you saw the heavy cloud of smoke and flames rising from the school. Natur-
ally excited, you hurried on until you could plainly see the building. There stood what
was left of the former school-a great roaring mass of smoke and flames. The firemen
rush about like ice-coated maniacsftheir efforts long since have proved to be futile.
People standing in awe, watching the destructive work of the demon, Fire. Watching
a good fire would stir the soul of any man, even if he had the profoundly simple soul of
ln january of l904 the students of Ryan High School, which stood on the site
of the present High School, and the residents of Appleton experienced all the thrills
and excitement of a "good" fire. The fire was first discovered by the janitor, who, on
account of the severe cold, had been coming to the school at four o'clock in the morning
in order to get the building warm. He was about to enter the building when he noticed
flames shooting out of one of the the windows. He sent in a call immediately for the
fire department. Although the department responded quickly, by the time they arrived
they could not get into the building because of the thick smoke. It was said that the
fire originated in the furnace room and spread through the Ventilating system. By eighi
o'clock nothing but two brick walls of the building was left standing. These were
ready to fall at any moment. The firemen were greatly hampered by the sixteen degree
below zero weather. Although it was not a windy day, pieces of burned paper and book
leaves were found as far away as St. Elizabethls Hospital. All the records, textbooks.
manual training equipment, physical equipment, etc. were burned. The entire loss was
estimated at 550,000
At this time Appleton still had the District System of schools. By this system each
district had a high school of its own. After the fire, plans were immediately made for a
new Union High School, that is one large high school for all the district schools. ln a
few months work was begun on the present Appleton High School.

A Letter From Miss MeNervin
To grant the request for a word of greeting, or a reminiscence in honor ol the
celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Appleton High School, is to turn my
thoughts back into the yesterdays and recapture a thousand memories that brought at
that time so much interest into our lives as we were associated and worked out the
problems of Appleton High School together.
In the autumn of '04, Appleton High School had headquarters and some class
rooms in the City Hall building, but most of the class went on their merry-go-round way
from the City Hall and Library class rooms to the Lincoln School, to the Appleton
Theatre, to Lawrence Collce. Some of the science classes, and all of the expression
classes were held in the basement of the City Hall. Strangers thought it was a wild
animal zoo, or Bedlam, for there were always puzzled looking spectators lined up out-
side the basement windows. Later in the spring when the warm weather came and
windows were opened, curious children and grown-ups, and even the uncommon council,
put their heads in through the windows to see what was going on. It was usually a class
downing the "Romans", it may have been the "Charcoal Man" calling his wares, or the
ocean "Rolling On", or it may have been Bert Lennon bringing to an untimely end "The
Man with the Iron Shroud".
For our play that year, we undertook the presentation of a very pretentious one
called "Rosedale" in which there were several acts, and numerous scenes in each act.
I often wondered if because of that play and its complicated presentation at the Appleton
Theatre, we were in any measure responsible for the stage manager of the theatre having
lost his mind the following summer.
The following year we were installed in the new building, and what a marvelous and
happy change it was! Busy years followed, days and nights crowded with activities
and programs. Eager boys and girls swarmed into school each year and surged out
again,- always with faces glowing with hope, radiant with the joy of life, exuberant
as only youth can be, curious and hungry to prepare themselves for their great venture
in life. And what a blessed thing it is now to feel, reflected from that long procession,
so many happy memories and the warmth and loyalty of so many priceless friendships.
To the faculty, the alumni, the students of those memorable days, we extend our
hearty greetings. In whatever remote corner of the earth you may be established, know
one and all that our fond thoughts are with you, and we are sending best wishes for
much success and joy and blessings.

D. JI. S.,
To teachers and students of A. H. S.
Three significant letters are-UD. S."
They call to mind a woman, strong,
Who long has guided the student throng.
ln the days of McGovern, ninety-four
She began her work, with little more
Than a dream for the future with high ideal
Of a commercial department she hoped to make real.
The department was started in old Ryan High.
The beginning was small, the goal was the sky!
No two years alike, always planning things new,
Her enterprise flourished and steadily grew.
When Ryan High burned, and a new school was planned,
'Twas this same D. S. who worked hand-in-hand
With principal, architect, citizens, board,
To make needs, high ideals, and building, accord.
Then on through the years, to June, twentyseight
She worked for the school, both early and late.
Always progressive, never at rest,
She developed a department that ranks with the best.
No mere words of tribute could ever express
All it meant to her to achieve this success.
But summed up in one indisputable truth:
SHE HAS GIVEN HER LIFE TO APPL.ETON'S YOUTH!

A. H. S. has always had many distinguished sons and daughters in every field of
life. From the old Ryan High came Edna Ferber, Dr. John Murphy and others. From
our present high school we have a notable list of graduates. We are presenting briefly
some facts about a few of our alumni who have attached unusual attention since their
Francis Bradford, 'l6, has distinguished himself as an artist. ln l922 he won
the Prix de Rome which granted three years of study in Rome. Since he has been back
in this country, he has opened a studio in New York and is very busy. He is especially
interested in doing large mural paintings.
Alvin Kraemer, 'l2, has made a success as a dress designer in New York. Many
of the stage and screen actresses that we gaze on have had their costumes designed by
Oscar Schmiege, '20, has been elected three times as an assemblyman in the as-
sembly at Madison. When Oscar was elected the first time he had the distinction of
being the youngest assemblyman.
Rose Ryan, '20, is our only woman lawyer. She has recently passed the state
bar examination and is now practicing law in Appleton.
Gladys Bagg Taber, '16, now of Lynchburg, Virginia, has been busy writing
poems, which have been published in Poetry Magazine, and plays and songs in collabor-
ation with her husband who is a musician. Her first book of poetry, Lyonnasse, has
just been published by The Bozart Press.
Austin Saecker, '14, has won several prizes at the Wisconsin Artists exhibit, has
spent a year studying in France and now has a studio in Appleton where he is very busy.
We are proud to have some of his work for this anniversary number.
Irving Schwerke, 'l2, is at present the musical critic for the Paris edition of the
Chicago Tribune. He has also published two books on music.
The Clarion was much interested in the following letter. It came to us from Mr.
A. F. Warren of the National l..umberman's Bank of Muskegon, Michigan, who sent

GLADYS BAGG TABER, '16,
Of the many traditions of Appleton High School, the observance of Class Day
each spring is the most outstanding in the memory of each graduate as he thinks back
to the days spent at his Alma lVlater.
'lhe lirst records of Class Day date back to l9l I, during the first year of lVlr.
Paul Ci. W. Keller's administration. However, it seems certain that exercises on the
order of Class Day were held prior to this time.
'llhe custom was inaugurated with the atmosphere of a student-faculty fellowship
program. lntimate things concerning school life were projected, and a great deal of stress
was laid on the School Spirit Cup.
The first Class Day program recorded was staged on the steps of the main entrance
of the high school building. The program, as now, consisted of songs and speeches
written for the occasion.
lVlany customs were introduced in l9ll which have since been discarded in the
present Class Day programs. From these customs, however, have come several of our
After the fashion of Harvard University, a vine planting ceremony used to be held
each year. An ivy oration was given by a prominent senior and the spade used in the
actual digging was presented to the juniors for safe keeping. This gave rise to trouble
as the sophomores often saw fit to steal the spade immediately after it had been placed
in the hands of the juniors. The planting of the vine has since been done away with, but
the custom of handing down the spade each year to the incoming senior class is still
A second tradition which dates back to the founding of class day is the senior
processional. The purpose of the founding of this custom was probably to honor the
outgoing senior class.
Another custom inaugurated with Class Day, and which was later discarded, is the
presentation of a mirror to the best looking junior girl.
The 'Craftsmanship Shield was originated by the class of 1915. The members of
the class recognized the need of rewarding outstanding service to their Alma lVlater.
With this in view, they set aside a sum of money to be used in presenting a shield to the
most all-around student each year for five years. To be deserving of the award the
student must be one "who has shown the greatest love of work, perfection of work, and
has been the greatest all-around service to his fellow students."
ln i922 the American Legion offered a medal to the high school athlete whose
excellence in athletics and scholarship merited recognition. Since that time the Legion
medal has taken its place among the Class Day traditions of our Alma Mater.
No record has been found concerning the origin of the Class Day key which, accord-
ing tg custom, is presented each year to the president of the junior class by the president
of the graduating class. However, indications seem to point to the fact that it is a custom
of long standing.
This year a change was made in the general routine of the Class Day program.
It was felt that the significance of the maior awards was being lost in the confusion of the
presentation of so many less important. Because of this, a special award day was estab-
lished, leaving only the Craftsmanship Shield and the American Legion Medal, to be
presented on Class Day.
This is the story of Class Day-that tradition of traditions. But this is not the
end, for each year adds to the narration, and to the fame and glory of Appleon High

One gets out of school pretty much that which he puts into it. The quality of one's
daily efforts determines the quality of the final product. Building life in school is like
building a bank account. What one deposits determines the size of the account. Daily
deposits, even though small, made over a period of time, plus the interest earned, result
in a surprisingly large accumulation. But one cannot draw out more than the accumu-
lated result. So it is in school. Faithful, honest, intelligent daily effort, over a period
of years, yields surprising results. Yet the results cannot amount to any more than the
sum total of the daily efforts plus earned interest. One gets back in proportion as he
applies himself. It is the giving of one's self, the application of one's ability to the
work of the school, which has to do with the moulding and making of a life. Teacher
effort is important. It arouses interest, imparts inspiration, and gives direction. Yet far
more important is student effort. Without this growth is impossible. Inspired and di-
rected by teacher effort, student effort moulds and makes life. So one gets out of school
pretty much that which he puts into it.

We are celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Clarion and it calls to my
mind the literary work of the high school in its early days, when there were not enough
students to support a newspaper or magazine. We had, however, literary and debating
societies to which practically every student belonged. We had also weekly rhetoricals
in school from which no person was excused, and by means of these agencies many a
man, now on bench or bar, received an early training in public speaking for which he
would give nothing in exchange.
Nor was the drama neglected. Plays were not as elaborate as those of today, but
I recall productions in those days, which did real credit to the young actors. There was
a greater leaning toward the classical in the selections chosen for public reading at that
time, and at Commencement every graduate appeared with an oration, many of which
would have done credit to much older students. The average age for graduation was
seventeen, although many finished at sixteen. lixtra-curricular activities other than the
literary societies were practically unknown, so efforts were concentrated along this line
and were productive of excellent results.

We are commemorating the 25th anniversary of Alma Mater. A quarter of a
century is a long time in the life of a man, but it is less important in the life of an insti-
tution. Man comes and must soon go: the institution may go on indefinitely.
The quarter of a century that has just been completed has been momentous in the
life of Appleton High School. During that time, its student body has increased nearly
300 percent, its faculty has more than trebled, and its annual graduating class has grown
from 29 to 259. The problems brought about by these changes have been varied and
Perhaps the greatest of these is the need for a new senior high school building.
The Appleton high school of the immediate future will need to administer to i000 stu-
dents. An enrollment of i500 students is another probability.
This problem concerns every student and every citizen. Its solution is dependent
upon mutual cooperation, effort, and understanding. Believing that it is wise to plan for
the future as well as the present, I am calling this to your attention as the obstacle to be
removed in the continued progress of our school. It is a problem which will challenge
your young citizenship to the utmost.

'Ihe Seniors' Debt to Appleton High School
As the time for parting draws near, we seniors begin to appreciate what Appleton
High School has really meant to us. We realize now, and in the future we shall realize
still more, that our Alma Mater has been more in our lives than just a step toward the
completion of our academic education. Of course we owe much to our school for what
we have learned in this field. Knowledge of this type is very essential, and beyond a
doubt one of the main purposes of our school system lies here. Our teachers have known
this. We have profited through their guidance and loyalty to their work and are deeply
However, this is not all there is to modern high school education. We could have
obtained much of this information through a correspondence school course or through
private tutoring, but these sources would have lacked one vital need. Association with
others is the magic ingredient which makes group education advisable.
Association leads to the development of the "we" feeling. This is very true when
people are knit together by a common purpose or interest. ln following out this prin-
ciple, the organization of extra-curricular groups and activities was encouraged through-
out our entire high school life. Social affairs and athletics, particularly inter-school ath-
letics, were favored because they had a tendency to increase this same "we" feeling
which accounts for what is known as "school spirit" and for the formation of many
Group loyalty and the spirit of cooperation were instilled into us from the very first
through example and actual experience. We were taught how to get along with people,
how to achieve common goals. We were taught leadership and "fellowship" at no sac-
rifice of individual initiative or character. ln other words, we were taught the basic
lessons of good citizenship.

Senior Class History
As sophomores, the class of '29 entered Appleton High School four hundred strong.
We were the first class to come directly from the junior high schools. It took the first
part of the year to adlust ourselves to our new surroundings. We sponsored some foot-
ball and basketball games in the fall and winter, which gave us a start toward our goal.
lmhe class of '29 decided to give a velour curtain for the assembly as our class gift to the
school. As this was an expensive project it required united effort to carry it out success-
fully in two years.
Witli a stronger feeling of unity as juniors, we took an active interest in extra-
curricular activities. A large number of our members became interested in both football
and basketball, winning the interclass basketball championship as a result. The junior
class play "Puppy Love", which was given February 27, at Fischer's Appleton Theater,
was a great success. Our second year in Appleton High School ended with the decision
to sponsor an Older-Brother-Sister movement for the incoming sophomores in the fall.
Like all classes our activities became more varied in our senior year. We started
out by giving a get-acquainted party for the sophomores. This party was a complete
success, and it is hoped that the seniors of '29 have established a precedent in this respect.
We took over the sponsorship of the anniversary number of the Clarion, the staff con-
sisting almost entirely of seniors. We agreed to contribute ten dollars to the lyceum
fund at the end of the year to make up any remaining deficit. We also took charge of
the pep sessions for the Oshkosh and West Green Bay football games. During the second
semester the class of '29 sponsored a "Pay Your Debt Week" and two basketball
games. The class was well represented in athletics this year, having about thirty-five
men out for football, basketball, and track.
Much credit should be given to lVlr. Clement Ketchum, our class sponsor, for his
work in helping us with what we have accomplished during our three years in A.H.S.
Here's to the happiness and success of the sophomore and junior classes.

tmior Class History
Entering Appleton High School with an enrollment of three-hundred three students,
we, the Class of l93O, inexperienced but plucky, began our high school career. That year
started us on the Road of Life and taught us to master difficulties and depend upon our-
we had been accustomed to at the junior high schools. During
selves a little more than
the first part of the year, there was not much cooperation or initiative shown by the class
as a whole. Through the ready assistance and kind advice of our sponsors, we became
accustomed to our surroundings and began to show these qualities.
We made a good record in athletics, and our fellows showed very promising
ear. Two men received letters-one in basketball, the other in
football Ten men were placed on the track squad. The girls of the present junior
class should also receive credit for their work in basketball, volleyball, and the other
tournaments that were held, and tried with the best of their ability to have the Junior
material for the next y
Class on top.
As sophomores we had a high percentage of our class in extra-curricular activities.
Besides sponsoring some football games, the class, to a great extent, engaged in promoting
other activities, including Glee Club, Band, and Orchestra. Our class party, attended by
almost every member of the class, was a huge success. As a class gift we decided to
present a flag to the school.

Our junior year was ushered in with many plans for a successful season. The
enrollment was not quite so high as that of the preceding year, the class consisting of
two hundred sixty-two. lVluch credit is due the class sponsors and the class cabinet for
This year our record in athletics was very good. Eight men received letters in
football and five in track. Several also were placed on the hockey team. At the
football games members of the class sold pennants.
The junior party was attended by a large crowd, and an excellent program was
given in the assembly during the evening. Since it has been thought more advisable not
to have a junior prom this year, plans were made to hold a Junior-Senior Spring Frolic
on April l3th. This was perhaps the most successful social function of the year.
Assembly programs sponsored by the juniors have been received enthusiastically by
the school. Committees in the class have provided excellent stunts before the football
and basketball games we have sponsored.
One of the movements sponsored by the class of '30, as juniors, was ucourtesy
Week", which was held from February I8-22. This project was begun with a program
demonstrating the rules of courtesy. Posters were made in which the class tried to show
that courtesy should be used always, andishouldl be used not only in school, but at home
and in public places.
This year our class decided to present the school with a set of silverware, adequate
for large banquets. On the handles of this silverware will be the engraving "A.H.S."
We hope that our senior year will be as successful as our junior year has been.

Class of '31
For the first time in many years the sophomore class has played an important part
in the school spirit race. Until the end of the second semester the class of '3l was
leading in school spirit. The sophomore class was first to have one-hundred percent in
class dues under the able direction of John Rechner, class treasurer. We sponsored the
Appleton-Marinette football game with a very appropriate stunt preceeding the game.
The sophomore party, held on October 26, was a huge success. l'lallowe'en decorations
were used and the party was in keeping with the hard times ideas The class gift was
a flag, flagstand, and shoulder straps to be used on the stage. in the assembly and in
school parades. A gift of ten dollars was donated toward the deficit in the lyceum fund.
Miss Edith Brunschweiler, class sponsor, devoted much of her time and effort
to the class projects. Much ofthe success of the class is due to the work of Miss
The cooperation of the junior and senior classes in helping us during the school year
is greatly appreciated by the sophomore class.

Our class has been well represented on the school athletic teams, two sophomores
winning their letters in football, one in cross-country, and two in hockey. Many of the
boys are on the second teams and show promising material for first squads for the next

Many of the sophomores are in the band, orchestra, and the glee club. Eight mem-
bers of the Class of '3l are on the "Talisman" staff and two on that of the "Clarion",
and one sophomore appeared for debate.
The class started its first year here with "Wim and wiger", as Sam Weller would
say, and at the end of the first semester ranked first in the race for the School Spirit Cup,
which has never been won by a sophomore class, although in the first year's competition
the sophomores tied with the seniors.
We look forward to our next two years here with a great deal of enthusiasm, hoping
to accomplish a great deal, with the cooperation of the members of the class, and under
the leadership of our faculty guides and cabinet. When we leave our Alma Mater, may
it be said that the Class of '3l has left behind it three well-filled, happy, and successful

Appleton High School continues to pilot its classes with the system of class govern-
ment which was originated in l925. It is the work of each class cabinet to alleviate
problems which arise in the respective classes, to appoint committees and to act on sugges-
tions given by classes. Each class cabinet consists of class officers, student council
members and faculty sponsors. Thus it is readily seen that this system of class government
is workable because it is a body representative of the whole class. The cabinets acting as
advisory boards have aided in carrying on business in the classes more smoothly than is
possible in large governing bodies.
It is the privilege of any student, through their representative, to issue demands,
approvals and disapprovals to the student council. If the demands are sanctioned by a
majority vote they are instituted in Appleton High School. This year in addition to
their other duties the cabinets have carried out minor bits of business without the vote of
the classes in general. At the end of each six weeks home room representatives to the
cabinets compile two listsg one containing the names of those students who are outstanding
in school spirit and service to the school, and the other bearing names of students who are
dehcient in school spirit.
The representative government which has run so smoothly in Appleton High School,
gives the students an opportunity to express their opinions and take an active part in the
government of their school.

Keepers of the Flag
Each year it is the custom for the senior class to choose two of its
members, a boy and a girl, to care for the flag, the emblem of American-
ism. These students are chosen by their classmates for their high char-
acter, scholarship, and leadership. It is their privilege and duty to raise
and lower the Hag daily and to keep it waving over Appleton High School.
To be Keepers of the Flag is the highest honor the Senior Class can
bestow on any of its members. This year the Keepers of the Flag were
Ruth Cohen and Chester Davis.

The Craftsmanshzip Shield
The most coveted award granted an individual student at Appleton High School
during the past fourteen years has been the Craftsmanship Shield. Each year the Shield
stands as the tribute of the school to exceptional scholarship, leadership, character, and
Appleton High School may well be proud of the student chosen this year as the
winner of the Craftsmanship Shield, Norman Zanzig, so well does he represent that for
which the Shield stands-an earnest spirit of work, an inspiring leadership. high ideals
of character, and cheerful service to others. Norman has been editor of the Clarion
this year after working on the staff each year he has been in high school, president of
the Student Council this year and a member last year, a member of the Crlee Club and
Hi-Y for the last two years.
ln this, our Silver Anniversary Number of the Clarion, we are happy to remember
those to whom this honor has been given in past years: l9I6 Edith Wood, 1917 Elmer
Root, I9l8 Margaret Abraham, l9I9 William Buchanan, l920 Reed Havens, 1921
LaVahn Maesch, I922 Frank Hoppe, 1923 Beverly Murphy, l924 Richard Neller,
l925 Carl Shiebler, l926 John Catlin, I927 William Lee, and I928 Aloysius Gage.
The American Legion Award
Each year, as a signal recognition for excellence in athletics, the American Legion
Athletic Award is given to the most outstanding athlete in Appleton High School.
Because of his admirable qualities of sportsmanship, courage, and loyalty to the school,
the medal this year was awarded to Robert Kunitz.
"Bobby's" popularity was very wide spread, but more important, he was admired
and honored by his team mates. They came in close contact with him, realized that he
always put the success of the team before personal glory, and were themselves urged to
greater efforts through his example and radiant spirit.
In both football and basketball "Bobby" won all-conference positions. He was
high scorer of the 1927 football season in this conference. In track he was one of the
big reasons for Appleton's success. "Bobby's" record will be a challenge to the future
winners of the Legion Award, and it proves that he is deserving' of a rank with those who
have won this honor in the past. They are 1922 Reed Havens, l923 Harold Briese,
1924 Arnold Hillman, I925 Claude Bowlby, 1926 Carl Voeclcs, l927 Norbert

Election to Quill and Scroll, a national journalistic honorary society, is the honor
most highly coveted by high school journalists. lts purpose at A.l-l.S. is to assist and
promote "The Talisman", our weekly paper.
The Quill and Scroll Society was organized at the University of Iowa in April,
1926, for the purpose of recognizing and rewarding ability and achievement in writing
and other phases of journalistic work in the high schools. Now over seven thousand
of the ablest young journalists in America wear the badge of the society. Appleton High
School was granted a charter in l926. Quill and Scroll was the school's first national
society as the National Honor Society charter was not secured until l928.
Quill and Scroll standards are very rigid and election to the chapter is prized
more highly than the receiving of the journalistic UA". To be eligible for election,
students must be at least of junior rank: they must be in the upper third of their class
in general scholastic standing: and they must have done superior work in some phase of
journalistic or creative endeavor.
As the standards are so high only a few students are chosen each year. Eight
students were elected to the chapter in April of this year.

Each year the Remington Typewriter Company awards a gold medal to any student
who writes at least 55 words per minute for fifteen minutes with not more than six errors.
This is the goal which each senior typing student tries to attain and it is a difficult one,
as it usually takes two years of hard work.
The first student to win the medal in ONE YEAR was Louise l-lopfensperger of
the Class of l926. Since then five other students have done so.
Eight students from the l929 typewriting classes have won gold medals this year.

The Student Council as the self governing organization representative of the
student body has successfully completed the cycle of another year of service to the school.
Under the present system of membership, adopted in the autumn of l92 7, the council
is composed of twenty-eight students. These representatives are chosen by the home
rooms, each room being allowed one member with the exception of the four largest rooms
which are entitled to two councilmen.
Une of the biggest projects taken over by the council this year was the sponsorship
of the Assembly Lyceum Course through which eight well known Americans were brought
before the student body. Because of the success of the undertaking this year, this course
will again be sponsored during the next school year.
The annual activities banquet, was again part of the council's program. Two clubs,
the Sophomore Triangle and Booster Club, were granted charters: several all school
dances were conducted, including an alumni frolicg the student hand book was editedg
several pep sessions were conducted: the sale of basketball season tickets was directed:
and the care of the lawns was again taken over by the council.
Another feature of the council's work was traffic regulation. "Keep to the right"
signs were posted in the corridors to eliminate the congested situation on the stairways and
in the halls.
The Student Council deserves a great deal of credit for the splendid effort put
forth in anticipation of the many things they have accomplished for the betterment of
our school life.

T e Clarion
This is the third successive year that the senior class has sponsored the Clarion.
The staff was composed largely of seniors, but a few juniors and sophomores held
positions in order to give them journalistic experience for the next two years. The All-
American Honor rating of the 1928 annual set a high goal toward which to strive.
The theme of the book this year centered around the Silver Anniversary of Appleton
High School. The subscription drive began with an
assembly program including a talk by "Luke" Gage, a '28
alumnus, and ended with a home room canvass which result-
ed in a IOOW subscription of the seniors, the other classes
both having high averages.
A large number of alumni subscriptions were secured
by the business staff, and these, with the number of copies
sold to the sponsors, served to make this the largest Clarion
A special section was devoted to the anniversary
theme, and all sections of the book were enlarged, making
this the annual in Clarion history. The success of the
publication this year was, in the greater part, due to the
faithful work and the splendid cooperation of Miss Ruth
Loan, editorial sponsorg Miss Esther Graef, financial
adviser, and Miss Margaret Abraham, adviser of the an-
niversary section. These advisers, in cooperation with the
staff, have issued this fourteenth volume of the Clarion.

In its fifth year of existence in Appleton High School, the Talisman has completed
a most satisfactory term both from a financial and educational point of view.
The fine cooperation of the business and reportorial staffs, the Talisman, piloted
under new leaders enabled it to emerge at the end of the year, financially independent.
However, a certain amount of the success is to be credited to the advertisers of Appleton
who have patronized the Talisman. During the first year of the publication the local
men ran their ads in the paper merely to aid a newly found struggling organization. Now
that the paper has become established and is well known by the student body the adver-
tisers consider the Talisman in the same light as a larger
newspaper, and consequently feel that their ads are of value
More students are represented on both staffs this year
than in previous years, proving that the Talisman is gaining
a foothold as an established activity of educational and
Three tryout periods were held through the year by the
reportorial staff so that the students in the various classes
would have an opportunity to try their skill at newspaper
writing. The business staff, however, held but two tryout
periods during the year.
In lVlarch, a joint meeting of the two staffs was held
at which a talk on journalism was given by lVlr. F. G. lVloyle

Usually the year after the district conference has been sponsored by a Hi-Y, the
Club seems to go dead. The Appleton Chapter of Hi-Y disproved this by having one
of its most successful seasons. Although the club worked under many handicaps it can
look hack on its record and be proud.
Because it was found to be impracticable to have both an A and a B chapter of
Hi-Y, the two chapters were joined under the name of the Appleton Hi-Y Club.
During the past year the organization sponsored a second hand book sale, a Junior
High School free throwing contest, and a movie. One of the biggest projects undertaken
by this organization was the education of Junior High Ninth Graders to the various
extra-curricular activities. Representative members of each of the activities spoke to
the boys On the requirements necessary to enter each activity, the type of boy who would
get the most out of the activity, the type of work done in each organization, and the
value of the activity in school life.
The club held a joint meeting with the Girl Reserves at which the two organizations
discussed the desirable qualities of girl and boy friends. Throughout the year the club
attended the different churches of the city.
Witlm the able assistance of Mr. Orlando Skindrud, faculty sponsorg and Mr.
Charles Bailey, Boys Work Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., the Appleton Hi-Y Club
did its best to "create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high
standards of Christian Character".

The idea of school savings in the Appleton High School was originated in 1913 by
Principal P. G. W. Keller. Miss Rose McNevin was the first faculty sponsor, and
two students were chosen from each of the four classes to serve as directors. Deposits
were made just before the opening of school in the afternoon, on Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays, in what was then known as the Library, fthe alcove at the back of the
assembly rooml. The money was invested and students received 4? on all sums over
In l9l8, Miss May Webster succeeded Miss McNevin as bank sponsor, and
deposits were made in the south corridor, where a bank cage was erected. A year or
two later when the halls became too crowded at noon because of an ever increasing
enrollment, the place for making deposits was again changed, and room 206 was used.
In l923, during Mr. Lee Rasey's administration, this private system of banking
seemed inadequate for so large an enrollment, and it was transferred to the First National
Bank under the direction of Thrift Incorporated. The interest rate was then changed
to Tk for all amounts over one penny. One day was set apart as "Bank Day", and all
deposits were made in the various home rooms under the direction of cashiers appointed
in room. W
In September l924, Mr. Willard 'Cross assumed the duties of bank sponsor, reliev-
ing Miss Webster on account of illness. It was again turned over to Miss Webster the
following year, and she has since sponsored the activity.
Until 1927, bank records of the various classes were considered in school spirit
contests, and there was a good deal of rivalry among classes for high percentages. All
activities in any way depending on linancial support are now eliminated from the school
spirit cup race, consequently bank averages have been somewhat lower during the past
two years, but thrift has been so well established in the school., that 65? of the student
body are regular depositors.

Because the Sophomore Triangle Club was completely dissolved at the end of the
last school year, it was necessary to obtain a new charter from the Appleton High School
Student Council this year.
The membership of this club consists of Sophomore boys. During the past year
they were under the guidance and leadership of Mr. C. C. Bailey of the Y.lVl.C.A.
The club has been outstanding in its activities this past year. They have sponsored
an Inter-junior High School swimming meet at which they awarded ribbons to the first,
second, and third place winners in the various events.
The club has carried on in a fine way, a better comradeship for Sophomore boys.

The Tri-Square Girl Reserves feel that in this-their second year of organization-
they have carried on with some degree of success the purpose which the organizers had.
It has been the desire of the club to form, not so much a social group, as a group of
workers who will bear in mind the needs of the school in their program of projects.
With this in mind some of the projects undertaken by the Girl Reserves were:
giving chocolate bars to the men during the halves of football gamesg presenting a water
carrier to the football squadg sponsoring a pep sessiong improving the teachers' rest-room
by a thorough cleaning and by new furnishings: and by a ninth grade party. All business
meetings of the club were carried on according to parliamentary practice.
Social activities of the club were a party for the Girl Reserve Alumnae, discussion
meetings, a sleigh-ride, and various other parties.
To carry on the projects undertaken, money was raised by selling "hot dogs" at two
football games, by home-made candy sales, and by a rummage sale.

"Resolved: That the Direct Primary system of nominating United States senators,
representatives in congress, and state ofhcials be abolished."
"Resolved: That municipal public ownership and operation of electric light and
power utilities be adopted in Wisconsin."
Debate was carried on under a new system during the past year in the Fox River
Valley Conference of which Appleton High School is a member. Two questions were
debated during the season with two different squads working on each question. The
greatest change inaugurated by conference coaches was that of carrying on all conference
debates on the non-decision plan.
The direct primary question was debated from January I5 to February I5, with
Appleton meeting East Green Bay, Manitowoc, Oshkosh, and Marinette. 'Catherine
Hamm, Lenora De Wolfe, Lawrence Oosterhaus, Robert Mortimer, Paul Hackbert, and
George Schoehnlce debated this question.
The public utilities question was argued from February I5 to March I5. Teams
from Fond du Lac, West Green Bay, Oconto, ancl Sheboygan, were met by A.H.S.
squads composed of Ruth Cohen, Merlin Pitt, Virginia Ritten, Lawrence Morris, and
Mr. H. H. Helble considered that the debate program was very successfully
carried on this year, and that decided progress has been made in the held of debate in
Appleton High School.
Much credit for the successful season the debators experienced is due to the coach,

"Come Out of the Kitchen", the Senior Class play, fulfilled the expectations of its
title by being a story of pots and kettles, with its leading lady in the role of a charming
cook. The fabric of the play was woven from the loom of the plucky little Daingerfield
family and its attempt to help solve the financial difficulties of the home. And so the
merry story continued through a maze of delightful incidents from masquerade to discov-
ery and ultimate happiness. It stood as another splendid production to the credit of Miss

This year the Boys' Cslee Club surpassed all other records regarding the size of
the club and the quality of its productions. About sixty boys chose Glee Club, which
was again included in the curricular program, as an activity. The second period every
day at Moose Hall was always the most enjoyable in the day, according to a large
number of the members.
During the year two programs were presented in the high school assembly, and
several programs were given before the service clubs. "The Mikado" by Gilbert and
Sullivan, presented in combination with the Girls' Cnlee Club, on December Sth, at Brin's
Appleton Theater, was the most successful operetta ever staged by an A. H. S. Glee
Club. A difficult Easter cantata, "The Creation" by Haydn, was presented at Law-
rence Memorial Chapel on April 28th.
The annual party and "doughnut day" were two social events which added much
interest to the routine of the daily rehearsals. All in all the year was very successful, and
much credit is due Mr.McKee for his work in directing the organization. Mr. McKee's
retirement from the musical profession will be deeply felt by the students and music lovers

Because the club met every day this year, more and better work could be accom-

This production, which was the most difficult and the most expensive one the glee clubs
have ever attempted, was presented very successfully, due to the efforts of Miss Ruth
Mclfennan and Mr. 'Carl McKee. The sacred oratorio, "The Creation", by Haydn
was presented at Lawrence Chapel in the spring and was considered a very noteworthy
undertaking. Besides these two major presentations, programs were given in the student

The Appleton High School band this year had a membership of over
fifty students, an almost complete instrumentation. The organization was
fortunate in having a variety of instruments not usually found in a high
school band, such as the alto, bass clarinet, oboe, bassoon, and French
horn. The group played at the junior high schools, for the American
Legion, and at the lVlay lVlusic Festival.
The crowning event of the year for the organization was their entry
into the State Band Tournament at Stevens Point. The average experience
placed the group in the "B" class, but it was decided to enter class "A",
the more difficult.
The band is steadily finding its place with the best of organizations
in A. H. S. and their standing this year proves that the organization's
value in music instruction is at its height in our history.

The Orchestra ths year was perhaps the best Appleton High School
has ever had. This organization played many difficult numbers which were
beyond the skill of the average high school orchestra. Some of these
were "Norman, by Bizetg "The Magic Flute", by lVlozartg "Firefly",
by Friml. The orchestra has a very complete reed and brass section and
with the training that is now being given in the junior high schools, it
will soon have a section of skilled violinists. The orchestra entertained at
the junior high schools and at the various luncheon clubs during the year.

Since 1921 the Girls' Athletic Association has been a llourishing organization, and
under the careful direction of Miss Edith Small, the club has improved in many ways.
This year the association has a membership of seventy-six girls who have been
faithful in carrying out the slogan, "Every girl in some sport". Hockey, basketball,
volleyball, track, freethrowing, and baseball tournaments have been organized by the
clubg sleigh rides were giveng andlvarious hikes were led by members of the organization.
The girls sold peanuts and hot dogs at the football games, and Eskimo pies and candy
bars at the basketball games.
Besides sports the girls have completed the following projects: they made an
athletic Hall of Fame for the school by gathering all the athletic pictures, finding the
necessary data for each picture, having them uniformly framed, and hung near the trophy
case in the hall: they sponsored the Health Trial, a great movement in thc prevention of
tuberculosisg they sold poppies on Poppy Day: they sponsored the Marinette basketball
game and pep sessiong they have given two banquets, one for the football squad, the
other for the basketball team.
The constitution of the association has been revised, changing the point system,
and adopting three new attractive awards. A blue and orange felt emblem is given for
l50 points, a bronze medal for 600 points, and an "A" for IOOO points. Fifty-seven
emblems, nineteen medals, and six "A" were awarded during this school year.

conducting athletic contests. Members of this organization are given free admission to
football and basketball games in return for their services in putting up and taking clown

Athletics ln Appleton High School
ln the unwritten code of Appleton High School
athletics are these two commandments: "Honor the game
you play", and "Always play to win". These precepts are
in no way opposed to each other. To play to win does
not mean to win at any costg and, therefore, the first com-
mandment, which refers to sportsmanship, remains an
Our athletes recognize this fact, and records of Apple-
ton High School teams bear evidence that they live
up to their code. The season just ended affords an illus-
First, we hnd a broad conception of what it means
to "Honor the game you play". Every "Blue and Orange"
player felt it his responsibility to uphold the highest stand-
ards of sportsmanship. The student body in supporting the
A various teams, realized that it, too, represented Appleton.
ln the won-and-lost column, we find another very
J. R, SHIELDS enviable record. The world has little place for the
loser, but takes the winner to its heart. There is no place
what-so-ever for the loser who goes down without a fight. Appleton teams "always
play to win".
COACH josiaPH R. SHIELDS
What an absorbing activity athletics is! How W
much it adds of color to the life of an American High
School! And how necessary it is to bring about proper
balance between this great interest and the many other
objectives of education. This past year has been a
gratifying one in respect to this balance. There can
be no question of the success our teams have had:
of the success our treasury has met with: and of the
widespread and intensive interest shown by the student
spectators. Above all l feel confident that we have
fairly kept our heads, to the end that each side of our
life has not dictated, but rather contributed to, the
whole of our life.

The Football Season
The 1928 edition of the "Tackling Terrorsn was a team of which Appleton High
School could justly be proud. It enjoyed an extremely successful season, the best in
recent years, and finished in undisputed possession of second place. ln fact, Appleton
fell only four points short of the championship of the conference.
To be one of the leaders in the Fox River Valley race is a distinction in itself.
Competition has always been sharp and in 1928 it was
especially so. To win consistently, a team had to be good
in all departments of the game. Teamwork, and the "old
fight" were absolute essentials.
'gif Appleton met the requirements. Credit for this goes
to Coach Joseph Shields, to his assistants, Mr. Delforge
and lVlr. Cooper, and to the splendid spirit which the boys
themselves demonstrated. They were willing to work.
At the start of the season, the Shieldsmen were not
expected to be so good as they were last year. lVluch mat-
erial had been lost, including most of last year's "old
reliablesu. However. Coach Shields and his "Terrors"
showed that the "dope" was wrong. The improvement of
this year's team over last year's lay in greater teamwork
and less dependence upon individual stars. Each man knew
what his job was and did it. The coaches stressed the
importance of playing "heads-up" football and the
lb l9,3,A,.-,,,,,,,.3 "Orangemen" were seldom caught napping.

True, there were outstanding individuals. "Bobby" Kunitz and "Jake" Schaefer
earned places on every All Conference eleven. "Bobby" was high scorer of the
Conference, while Schaefer was Appleton's triple threat man. Kranhold, because of his
reliable playing ranked among the best tackles of the year. "lee" Berg's qualities of
leadership earned him the place of captain-elect for l929.
l-lere's the season, game for game:
The "Terrors" opened the season at Two Rivers with a non-conference win of
24-6. Every man with the team got his chance in this game, and Coach Shields was
able to learn where football ability lay.
The next Saturday the boys played their lirst con-
ference game. Fond du Lac provided the opposition and
the score was 0-0. With all due respects to the scrapping
Fcndy team it may be said that the only reasons Appleton
didn't win were constant fumbling and lack of scoring
Coach and his two assistants immediately concentrated
their efforts upon the attack. The defensive had been
quite satisfactory. Their labors bore fruit. The next
Saturday West Green Bay became Appleton's first con-
ference vfctim. After a listless first half the "Orangemen"
came back with a vengeance to win 9-0.
The game at Sheboygan, October 20, showed that
the boys had improved still further. Sheboygan scored
on a "fluke" early in the game, but after that Appleton's
goal line was never in danger. The "Chairmakers" played
well, but the score was I3-6 in our favor.

The next Saturday proved to be the high point of the season. Even the most
optimistic had been cautious about predicting an Appleton victory. Oshkosh was a
top-heavy favorite. However, the "Shieldsmen" gave the dope bucket a vicious kick and
put the sawdusters out of running I5-6.
A week later the "Terrors" ran wild over Manitowoc, piling up thirty-two points
to seven for the "Shipbuilders". Having tasted of success, the "Orangemen" just could
not be stopped.
And then, sad to relate, our heroes fell before the ucialloping Ghosts" from
Kaukauna. The "Ghosts" were pri-med for the battle, while the Appleton team appeared
disinterested. Evidently the "Orangemen", in anticipating the championship game with
East Green Bay, had neglected to give the "Kaw" game its full importance.
The big day of the championship game dawned grey
and cold. It rained, sleeted, and snowed, in turn. By
game time the field was one of those seas of mud you read
about. Because of the wet, fumbles were frequent, passes
were almost impossible, and punts could not be run back.
A couple of breaks due to the poor playing conditions paved
the way for two safeties by East. The hnal score was 4-0.
The "Red Devils" had a slight edge in the play because
of their heavier backfield, but many of those who saw the
game declared that Appleton's lighter, faster backs would
have made it a different story on a dry field.
The last game of the season the "Terrors" took some
sweet and long-awaited revenge on Marinette. It was the
first gridiron victory for Appleton over her northern rival
for a long, long time. The northerners fought hard, but
Appleton had the better team. The final score was twelve

The school owes much to the senior manager, Alden Fiedler, and the junior man-
ager, John Lonsdorf, for the success of the season. They had a big responsibility in
caring for the equipment and helping out the players, and they did their work well.
All details of financial management were in the hands of lVlr. R. Walsh. The
price of the season tickets was placed as low as possible so that every student could see
the games. Large purchases of equipment caused a deficit in the athletic fund, but be-
cause of the splendid backing of the student body, the basketball season more than
cleared this. -
This year was a big success. The "Terrors" of i929 will have to "step some"
to equal this record, but under Captain Berg, and with the real school spirit behind them,
they should come through with Hying colors. Come on, team!
"We will light, fight, fight,
When we're winningg
We will light, fight, Hght,

Every player knows when the whistle blows,
We will light whenever we choose.
We will fight, fight, light,

It wasn't an accident which gave Appleton High School second place in Cross-
country this year in the Fox River Valley Conference. Coach Richard lVleyer "knows
his stuff", and he had a hard-working, enthusiastic bunch of fellows running for him and
for Appleton High School. Each night they had a hard workout and one has to admire
them for showing real spirit.
Cross-country competes for interest with football, and very often people don't appre-
ciate what a distance runner does. Unlike most athletic fields, a cross-country course
is not lined with spectators and rooters who constantly cheer a man on to greater efforts.
A runner cannot depend on a team mate for aid. Everything is up to him alone. Each
man represents his school individually. Though not so spectacular as many sports, cross-
country demands real athletes, and it deserves more support than it is ordinarily given.
We are glad to say that at Appleton interest in distance racing is on the increase
and that it is attracting many students into this very healthful sport. i928 was the first
year in which letters were awarded to "Terror" harriers. Captain Warren Batley, John
Babino, John Reeve, Norbert DeYoung, Arthur Roemer, and Manager Lloyd Riehl
earned their "A's".
The Appleton runners swamped the Lawrence College Freshman squad in the first
meet of the season with a score of 28-50. fln cross-country the low score winsl. ln a
dual meet with the much more experienced Manitowoc team two weeks later the "Terrors"
found themselves outclassed completely. However, they came back and easily beat
Marinette the next Saturday, and in the conference meet November 3 they captured
second place for Appleton High School.
The beautiful part of it all is that the team was composed almost entirely of juniors.
This means experienced men for next year and, in all probability, a championship.

Basketball Season 1928-Z9
Big things were expected of Coach Shields and his "Fox Terrorsn in basketball this
year. Right here it may be said that Appleton teams fulfill expectations, and that this
season saw no exception to the rule. The "Shieldsmen" played sixteen games, six of
which were out of the conference, tied for second in the valley race, and lost but five
games. Three of these were by one point margins. Had it been possible for Captain
Rafoth to play in the crucial battles, it is entirely conceivable that Appleton might have
won the valley championship.
"Ben" was probably the most important cog in the "Orange" machine. He had all
the essential qualities of a good captain. He was a true fighter and a real leader. Apple-
ton's forwards were undoubtedly two of the best in the conference. "Nor" Berg was
high scorer of the valley. I-le'll be back again next year. just watch him! "Mike"
Gochnauer was seldom a Hashy player, but he could always be depended upon. l-lis cool
judgment and consistent play made him particularly valuable. As guards, Kunitz and
Schaefer were certainly one smoothly working pair. The low average of only thirteen
points per game for opposing teams speaks well for the "Terror" guards and their
"vacuum seal" defense. It is fitting at this time to mention a big man who had big
responsibilities. Manager John Dohearty showed himself to be a willing and hard worker.
However, just as Rome wasn't built in a day, the "Orangemen" didn't develop into
a well-knit organization until the season was well advanced. On December l4, they
traveled to Neenah and proceecfud to beat the ujorgenson Crew" 22 to ll. A week
later they defied the spirit world and "laid" the Kaukauna "Galloping Ghosts" with a
score of 23 to ll.

The first conference game was played at Sheboygan, and the "Terrors" won just
by "the skin of their teeth". These first three games were played very raggedly and
showed Coach Shields just one thing-that the "Orangemen" needed practice and lots
of it, especially as far as the attack was concerned.
He was given some encouragement on January 7, because "l:ondy" proved to be
no match for his sharpshooters and was swamped 28 to 9. Appleton hacl shown great
improvement, but the passing was still erratic, so a non-conference game was booked with
Stevens Point, primarily for practice. A tough break robbed the "Orange" of victory,
for the "Pointers" won by a single free-throw, I4 to l3.
Next week, lVlarinette got some first-hand information on how it feels to be beaten
by a score of twenty-two to sixteen. l-lowever, in the next game, Lady Luck turned
away from the "Terrors" again, and a rejuvenated Neenah five evened the three game
series, I7 to l2.
On February l, Sheboygan came to Appleton. From the "Chairmakers' " point
of view the game wasn't very good. Thirty to eleven was the score, and the "Terrors"
celebrated. They were still celebrating when, a week later, they playfully "snowed un-
der" West Green Bay to the music of 33 to 7. This victory put Appleton on top of the
percentage column, and the sport critics were at last convinced that the "Foxes" showed
It is always a pleasure for an "Orange" team to beat one from Kaukauna, so when
the "Shieldsman" trounced the "Electric City" bunch on February l5, they were merely
indulging in a bit of recreation.

SILVER ANN! VERSA R Y
But Lady Luck is extremely fickle, and in the next two games she actually
frowned upon 'Coach Shields and his warriors. Besides that, East Green Bay has always
been a "hoodoo". These two games were both with the "Red Devils". Both times
Captain Rafoth was kept on the sidelines because of an infected leg. Both times the
"Shieldsmen" fought hard and were well supported by the student body, but without
their leader they were badly handicapped. Both times the score was I4 to I5 in favor
of the wrong side. These two defeats eliminated Appleton as a championship contender
since the schedule was so arranged that the "Terrors" did not meet the Manitowoc
'fShipbuilders" who became the valley "champs".
Still smarting under these losses, they took a savage consolation at the expense of
West Green Bay with a 33 to ll victory on March I. However, a week later, Fond
du Lac managed somehow to garner four points too many and beat the "Orangemen"
22 to I9. The Appleton five was dead on its feet. This same dead bunch redeemed
itself, though, in its next game. Once again the "Fox Terrorsn barked a bit also.
lVlarinette was the victim of a 32 to I3 defeat.
The last game on the schedule proved to be a battle royal. Appleton and Neenah
fought to determine which was the better team. Vwien the smoke rolled away the score
was twenty-five to nineteen and in favor of the "Terrors". This last encounter was a
fitting climax to an eventful and very successful season.

The Hockey Season 1929
ln accordance with the idea of having as many students as possible take part in
athletics, Appleton has a full quota of sports. "Terror" teams represent their school
not only in football, basketball, and track, but in cross-country and hockey as well.
There is only one other school in the valley that has as varied an athletic program.
l929 was the first year to see hockey established as a major sport in A. H. S. A
team had been developed the season before, but because of unfavorable weather condi-
tions only two games could be played. However, this year the "Orange" upuckstersn
played seven games, won four, lost three, and tied Manitowoc for conference honors.
The Appleton team was an "all-star" aggregation. Coach Shields is quite a hockey
player himself, and he taught the boys plenty of tricks. The usual lineup found Kiley
and Jansen at the wing positions, Davis and Newland as defensive men, Babino at center,
and Holterman as goalie.
It is interesting to note here that although the members of the hockey team showed
as much aversion to sidewalk shoveling as any normal human beings, they never hesitated
once when it was necessary to shovel snow from a pond so that they could practice. The
winter of l928-29 will long be remembered as the year of the "big snow", and very often
the boys cleared the rink just in time for another blizzard. At one time they were
deprived of an out-of-town trip because the snow was so deep that they could not leave
A hockey player loves his game, and it has a decided appeal to the spectators.
Though a comparatively new sport in this locality, hockey has already achieved great
popularity and is fast coming to the foreground. Perhaps there is no faster or more
thrilling game to be witnessed today, at any rate a "puck-chasern must be a real athlete.
Above all, he must be courageous and able to think quickly.

Track Season 1928
The 1928 track season was nothing about which to be discouraged . In fact, a
conference championship shouldn't discourage anyone. Coach Shields again demon-
strated that Appleton High can produce real track athletes, and the "Terrors" won
their second first place in two years.
Captain "Chuck" Johnston was Appleton's scoring ace. He holds three conference
records. "Fifteen Point" Johnston could always be depended upon. Captain-elect
"Bob" Neller, Warren Batley, and "Champ" Roemer were three other "hoodoo" men
for opposing teams. Appleton's relay team was the "class" of the conference, won
several trophies, and never failed to give a good account of itself.
From our point of view, it seemed that the season
was almost perfect. The "Terrors" "walked away" from
the fieicl in their first meet, indoors at Green Bay. Several
Appleton men took part in the Mid-West Relays at lVladi-
son, April 28, and all made good records. A week later,
in the Fox River Valley Relay Carnival, the "Orangemen"
again took first. This was soon followed by still another
victory, this time over Manitowoc in a dual meet. On
May I9, the "Terrors" took part in the Lawrence Inter-
scholastic Track and Field Meet. Appleton competed
against larger schools where track is given more emphasis,
made a very good showing, and placed third.
The last meet of the year decided the conference
championship. Once again the ushieldsmenn won. The
result had been expected because of Appleton's previous
Q record. At any rate it was a fitting end to a season suc-
Mmmqcm cessful in every way.

With mud flying and a slight rain falling the hockey field became the scene of many
hard fought battles as one hundred and four girls took part in the first hockey tournament
even held in the history of Appleton High School. The game was developed in the
physical educational classes, and a color league consisting of eight teams was formed.
Although the hockey held was not in good condition, the girls made the best of the

Appleton High School Girls' Boslsetlmll
A succession of hard fought battles constituted the girls' basketball season for l929.
Fifty girls participated in the intramural tournament which was won by the team captained
by Bluebell Ryan. Their fast floor work and sure eye for the hoop gave them the
intramural tourney cup, while the Emerich basketeers came in second place.
The interclass basketball tournament was won by the senior team, captained by
Dorothy Rehfeldt. The Sophomores placed sccond and the Juniors trailed in third. The
winning senior team was composed of Dorothy Rehfeldt, Capt., Monica Van Ryzin,
Grace Sanders, Dorothy Kubitz, Doris Warning, Margaret Steir, Bonita Partridge,
Mildred Karweick, and Dorothy Shertz.

Girls' Free Throw Contest
For the third consecutive year Appleton High School girls took part in the annual
State Free Throw contest. Two weeks before the contest an interclass tournament was
held. Each girl was given twenty-five throws and the average for the class was taken.
The contest was won by the fourth hour classes taking physical education on Tuesdays,
Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
High point scorers from this contest were given intensive practice and a team
composed of Caroline Boettcher, Evelyn Ingenthron, Ramona Ryan, Leone Strutz, and
Monica VanRyzin was put into shape. The contest was held between the halves of the
East Green Bay basketball game at the Armory and the team made l73 points out of a
possible 250. Individual scorers were Ramona Ryan 40, Monica VanRyzin 38,
Caroline Boettcher 36, Leone Strutz 31, Evelyn Ingenthron 28.
The last two contests resulted in victories for the Appleton Girls' team, but this
year the girls tied for first place with Shawano. Platteville was second with ll2.
Shawano boys' team won first place with a score of I94, having the high point scorer,
Huntington, with 47. The Appleton girls' team received sufficient points to place them
third in the Boys' contest.

Of laurels never lost, of triumphs by the score:

But their colors ever lower to the

To the banks of the Fox River,
When years are past and gone,
When as schoolmates we have parted,
And our lessons all are done,
We'll return and show our comracles,
Though of course it isn't new,
That loyal we are, and ever will be

Our Cheer Leader
This little thing called "school spirit" that we hear so much about needs someone
to push it just as any successful organization needs its leaders. Possibly the greatest
upusheru of school spirit that we had besides the team itself was "Wally" lVloore.
Before every athlete contest "Wally" did everything in his power to get the support of
the student body behind the fighting "Terrors".
Throughout the athletic seasons, "pep" sessions were held prior to each home
game and a number of the out of town games. These sessions were sponsored by
various organizations, but "Wally" was always in charge of the real cheering and "pep".
The athletes themselves expressed their appreciation of his services by presenting
him with an orange sweater bearing the "Fox Terror" emblem.
The student body expressed its appreciation by turning out and supporting the team
in a greater fashion than ever before. lVluch credit is due "Wally" in promoting "school
spirit" in Appleton High School.

In 1904, when this high school was built, there was a city-wide search for an
efficient, dependable, engineer. These qualities were found in Mr. Orville Harris. He
has been our one and only engineer for the past twenty-five years.
"Cap" has been a great favorite with the student body. On September seventeenth
an assembly program was given in honor of his eightieth birthday. The students thought
it very fitting to present, at that time, an easy chair to "Cap" in recognition of his
twenty-five years of faithful service to Appleton High School. The program consisted
of speeches by Miss Ruth Saecker, Mr. George Dame, lVlr. Richard Tuttrup, and lVlr.
Herbert Helble. The presentation was made by Norman Zanzig. Mr. Harris after-
ward told us interesting facts of his life, thanking the student body for their gift.

In Appleton High School a group of faculty members served as class
sponsors for each of the classes. Without the help of these sponsors our
classes could not have accomplished the projects they have undertaken
this year. Classes and class cabinets have needed the guidance of those
who have wider experience. Beside acting as pilots to the classes, a num-
ber of faculty members have given much of their time to the Clarion, Talis-
man, and dramatic productions. Their suggestions and help have been
of inestimable value.

Guidance and Publications in A.H.S. V
Since 1925 the two major publications in Appleton High School have been the
Clarion and Talisman. Both reached the pinnacle of their success in this twenty-fifth
year of our history. The Student Handbook, edited and financed by the Student Council,
is a student's guide to A. H. S. This year two more publications appearedg "The
Senior High School Situation in Appleton", and "Facts and Possibilities", both written
and distributed by the Board of Education and lVlr. H. H. Helble. The purpose of the
two publications is to present to the common council and the citizens, the present high
school problem. Another publication, "A New Senior High School for Appleton" is
in the process of being compiled.
Besides a new junior high school guidance pamphlet written by lVlr. Helble, another
advancement has been taken in guidance work. Dr. Chester Sanford, one of America's
leading educators and vocational experts spent an entire week in Appleton High School,
and attempts are being made to obtain Mr. Sanforcl's services again next year.

And the glances that he sent her were the kind that boded ill-
Boded ill for babies still.
Suddenly his foot erratic, stepped upon a tack emphatic
And he tried to reach the attic but he could not leave the floor.
lt was then he yelled profanely, while the baby screeched insanely:
And his wife asked him urbanely, "ls it very, very sore?"
Yes she had the nerve to ask him if his foot was very sore.
Of course, with this Herb cussed some more-
Only that and nothing more.

First a signal, then a thucl,
And your face is in the mudg
Someone jumps upon your back,
And your ribs begin to crack.
When you're ready for a go-
Some giant lands upon your toe.
If you carry up the ball
All the gang upon you fall.
If you gain a yard or more,
Higher then your hopes will soar.
When at last the goal you clear
You're greeted with a rousing cheer.

"Come Om of the Kiztchenw
The Senior Class Play, "Come Out of the Kitchen", by A. E. Thomas, is, as its
title suggests, a story of pots and kettles. The leading lady, Emma Newby, plays the role
of a charming lrish cook. Her real name is Olivia, the endest daughter of the Dainger-
field family, but throughout the greater part of the play, she takes the name of jane Ellen.
The fabric of the play is woven around the attempt to solve the Financial problem of the
Daingerfields by renting the old southern mansion to a Yankee millionaire, Burton Crane,
played by Norman Zanzig. Each member of the family masqueraded as a servant.
Roy Marston plays the part of Paul, the older brother, who masqueraded as Smithfield,
the butler. Elizabeth, the somewhat-spoiled "kid sister" is played by Nona Nemacheck,
who poses as Araminta, the maid. Charlie, the devilish kid brother, is played by Bob
Neller, in his usual role of tricks and wise-cracks. Jean Embry plays the part of
Olivia's negro mammy.
The role of Mrs. Falkner, the aristocratic visitor of Mr. Crane, is played by Helen
Snyder, while the part of Cora, her daughter whom she is trying to marry to Crane, is
played by Dorothy Davis. Solon Tucker, the brother of Mrs. Falkner is played by Carl
Wettengel. Thomas Lefferts, played by Bob Mueller, is a statistical poet, who is in
love with Cora. Randy Weeks, the agent of the Daingerfields, is carried by Merlin
Pitt, who is also in love with the cook.

The very last day in February fit figures out to be the 28thJ, was a big day for
the juniors, especially those directly connected with the annual class play. Art Roemer
had the lead as "the youngest", a nagged young lad who wanted to be an author. Jean
Shannon played opposite Art as Nancy Blake, and was later the great influence which
brought about a vital change in the affairs of the Winslow home. As usual, Betty Meyer
did well as the sweet mother of the Winslow family. Lawrence Costerhaus and Al
Brietrick were brothers of Art, and both added considerably to his difficulties. John
Reeve played the part of Allan Martin, a young lawyer and the husband of Augusta,
the aristocratic daughter, played by Lucille Joram. We can't forget Virginia Oaks as
"Muff" the kid sister. The character of Katie, the maid was taken by Edith Lens,-
and how! We're still wondering who the chauffeur was, and if they ever held hands at
This year the play was produced at Lawrence Memorial Chapel with unequalled
success. During the production the school orchestra, under the direction of Mr. E. C.
Moore played several numbers.
Miss McKennan's ability as a director was again evidenced by the polished
appearance of the production. It was received well by the audience and certainly ua
good time was had by all."

The later part of this year, a new club in Appleton High School received a charter
from the Student Council. About twenty-five boys, interested in industrial arts, and
taking the manual arts course, organized a new club called the Industrial Arts Society.
The purpose of the l.A.S. is to sponsor all improvements pertaining to the Industrial
Arts Club, to promote better scholarship in the manual arts classes, and to promote better
fellowship in the shop.
Meetings were held on Wednesday evenings in the high school and worthwhile plans
for the coming year were discussed. lVlany interesting and valuable projects will be
attempted next year, which will prove the real value of the organization to the school.

In former years it was the ambition of every student interested in extra-curricular
activities to be the wearer of an HA". With the institution of honorary societies, one
has to reach higher for his goal.
Winning the Craftsmanship Shield is the honor most coveted by any senior. The
American Legion award is presented to the most outstanding athlete. Election to the
National Honor Society signifies that a student has shown excellence in scholarship,
leadership, character, and service. The Quill and Scroll pin is given for outstanding
ability in journalism.
"A" awards are given to those who have successfully participated in Clarion,
Talisman, Oratory, Debate, Declamation, Extempore Speech, Girls' and Boys' athletics.
To wear the school symbol signifies that the student has attained a high degree of
success in his activity and has been recognized by the sponsor of the organization and
the committee on awards as a worthy recipient.
Every wearer of the blue and orange "A", should keep in mind that he is a repre-
sentative of his school and his activity, and that the significance of that piece of chenille
depends upon the honor with which he regards it.
Appleton High Schoolilfrutdzitiorts
Of all the things that we remember of our high school days, the old time-honored
traditions endear the longest. When we think of graduation and departing from our
Alma Mater, what is it that makes the feeling of sentiment arise within us?-
As sophomores we lirst find it is tradition for us to present the school with a Hag
as our class gift. The seniors, each year elect two worthy persons to care for this symbol
of patriotism,-another tradition. Then the junior and senior class plays and the oper-
etta are major events of the year. The Dame Declamatory Contest for girls, the I-Ieiss
Memorial Contest for boys, and the Fischer Extemporaneous Speech Contest are all
looked forward to. Who does not try to win a journalistic, athletic, or speech award, or
even the enviable Craftsmanship Shield?
No senior would give up any of his cuztotns and privileges - the annual vaudeville,
the senior banquet, the class day with the passing of the spade and key to the juniors.
These are the things that make high school life worth while and that live the longest
in our memories.-Traditions! '
