It is particularly fitting that this theme
was chosen as the keynote of the dedication
at a time when the theories and doctrines
of democratic living are being challenged
in many parts of the World. Fulfillment of the
ideal of democracy is, then, the purpose to
which this finest of educational institutions
was pledged that evening. The Board of
Education accepted this charge when Mayor
Goodland on behalf of the city council
presented the building to the chairman of
the board, Mr. Gmeiner.
There is little doubt that those citizens
of Appleton who were among the audience
will ever forget the close of the dedicatory
ceremony. For as the lights dimmed and the
band rose to play lohn Phillip Sousa's
immortal "Stars and Stripes Forever," the
heavy curtains in the rear of the stage parted
to reveal, poised against a background of

Visitors who toured the building before
and after the program were impressed by
the unusual facilities for educational achieve-
ment. Never before have Appleton high
school students had such outstanding ad'
vantages as this year's sophomores, juniors,
and seniors. Through the medium of this
publication the students of Appleton High
School express their willingness to make
common cause with the ideal to which the
building was pledged.

Hundreds of visitors to Appleton during the last year have
driven along broad Badger Avenue and seen the vast, beautiful
building which is Appleton's new "million dollar" senior high
school. These tourists have been amazed at the size and the
magnificence of the huge structure. And no wonder!
Because it was recognized early in the history of the United
States that learning and knowledge are indispensable in a
democratic government, the agencies involved in the erection
of the school have made the institution the finest educational
plant in the state. Every advantage, every opportunity for
broadening the cultural background of each student, for mak-
ing the three-years' course as complete as possible, for prepar-
ing students to meet life's p oblems and situations intelligently
has been provided.
The building is located on a triangular section of land at
Badger Avenue and Winnebago Street. The dimensions of the
site are 1,624 feet by 1,126 feet by 1,142 feet. Surrounded by
spacious lawns, the school has a half mile of trunk line side-
walks, a quarter mile of service walks, and a quarter mile of
drives. Before the central tower entrance is a lighted fountain.
An architectural style known as "modern American"-
modern without being modernistic-has been carried out.
Built of red brick, the structure is comprised of four distinct
units-the academic section, which includes seventy-five large,
sunny classrooms: the gymnasium, which seats 2,000 specta-
tors on the bleachers and in the balcony which surrounds
three sidesg the auditoriumg and the shops in one part of which
are the three fifteen-ton boilers which heat the school. The
shop unit, really a separate building, is connected to the main
section by a 122-foot passage.
Particularly unique features of the gymnasium are the
bleachers which, when not in use, are folded into the wall, and
the movable wall which separates the gym into two parts, one
for boys and the other for girls. Glass bricks form the upper
walls of the gymnasium and provide excellent natural light.
One story above the floor level of the "big" gym is the correc-
tive gym. Other rooms include two handball courts, showers:
and dressing, equipment drying, and ping-pong rooms. Shuf-
fleboard courts are laid out on the tiled corridor which com-
pletely surrounds the main gymnasium. The athletic field, one
of the state's largest, includes a huge intramural fieldg the
track, the gridiron: and eight concrete tennis courts.
The heart of the academic unit is, literally and figuratively
speaking, the library, located centrally on the second floor. The
walls are lined on three sides with high, filled bookshelves.
Attractive and convenient displays for magazines and news-
papers are found on the extreme south end. Long windows, the
beauty of which is enhanced by Venetian blinds, extend the
full length of the west wall. To the right and left of the entrances
are the charging and receiving desksp between the two desks
is the large card catalog. A "browsing" section, equipped with
comfortable leather chairs, book stands furnished with study
hints and ready suggestions, and individual study tables, is
found in the center of the reading room. 140 students can be
accommodated in the library. At the extreme ends of the room
are doors leading to the two large study halls. Cn the shelves
of the library are 9,000 carefully selected books: equipment
6 ,. 'M
also includes four vertical files containing clippings, pam-
phlets, pictures, and bulletins.
The academic section has been built to accommodate 1,800
pupils. The length of the main corridors on each of the three
floors is 262 feet, a second corridor on each floor running along
the south side of the auditorium is 172 feet long. The 75 class-
rooms are all 22 and 24 feet long and vary in width. Through-
out the academic sections are the commercial classrooms, the
five science laboratories, modernly equipped, the sewing
rooms, the kitchens, the speech room with its miniature stage-
all complete to the last detail which will make educational
opportunities for Appleton High School students as great as
Probably one of the loveliest show places of the building is
the large Early American activities room on the first floor. The
room is used by various school clubs and societies for social
meetings. Paneling of light, natural pine, tasteful furnishings
upholstered colorfully, bookshelves, wall pictures depicting
scenes of the early American period, Venetian blinds, and a
stone fireplace with brass andirons gleaming on the hearth
make the room a thoroughly delightful place for students to
hold social gatherings. A small, but completely equipped kitch-
en where refreshments can be quickly prepared after meetings,
is found connected to the main room.
Rivaling any theater in Wisconsin in size, perfection and
completeness of equipment is Appleton High School's huge
new bullet-shaped auditorium. Nothing has been left to chance
in this carefully designed room. 1,654 persons can be seated
in the cherry-red stuffed chairs in the auditorium. tSee picture
below.J The color of the seats blends with the red velour cur-
tains, the cherry-tinted concrete aisles, and the rose trim along
the borders and over the stage openings. The walls and the
ceiling are painted grey. The equipment includes an asbestos
curtain, a motion picture screen, scenery, ropes and pulleys,
a giant switchboard which controls all the lighting in the build-
ing and may be used for any lighting effect, a projection booth
equipped for sound, radio, and public address, spot lighting,
six banks of cove lights, fourteen lights set flush with the ceil-
ing, and a paint studio, 30 feet above and behind the stage.
The stage is 34 feet deep and 78 feet wide with a proscenium
opening 24 feet by 36 feet. Above the eight-foot wainscoting
of wood paneling are acoustical tile lines. The stage floor is
built of fir and maple, and beneath it are rehearsal and dress-
soundproof rehearsal chambers where musicians may practice
ing room. Behind the large stage, which compares in appoints
ments to the best in the state and on which the most elaborate
productions may be staged effectively, is a corridor which
leads to the band, orchestra, and chorus rooms. The individual
practice rooms are a decided innovation.
Other interesting statistical facts about the building are
these: the huge smokestack in the shop section rises 100 feet
from its base, 770,000 pounds of structural steel were used in
constructing the building's framework, 2,100 keys to entrances,
cabinets, closets, and files are registered in the main office, and
3,700 steel lockers are provided for the students' convenience.

In the rolling river valley,
Where the Fox flows by,
A famous high school rears the banner
'Appleton' on high.
CXYOR many years citizens of Appleton have dreamed of a new high school building that
was to be worthy of the ideals for which democracy stands. ln 1938 this dream was at last realized,
and today we are enjoying one of the finest, most beautiful, and most completely equipped
buildings in the state, a monument to education and tangible evidence of the progress education
has made. lt should be and is a challenge for achievement to both students and teachers.
On the morning of September seventh, principal and faculty welcomed fourteen hundred
and fifty students who were impatiently waiting to enter the "new high school." Each senior,
junior, and sophomore must have earnestly resolved that he would attempt to be worthy of the
privilege that was his. Certainly every instructor was anticipating an eventful and a successful
Perhaps the next highlight in this year of "historic firstsf' was the initial lyceum program
when students entered the vast auditorium for the first time, That its remarkable beauty and
dignity both awed and thrilled them was evidenced by the hushed silence and the spontaneous
cheering which followed. It was a most impressive occasion. The excited audience was oppor-
tunely reminded by the speaker that success in life is dependent on the goal toward which one

A few weeks later visitors were in-
vited to an "open house" at which time
more than ten thousand people thronged
the halls and toured the building. On
every side one could hear school days
being recalled by former students busy
comparing the new school with the old.
Although all alumni were loyal to their
alma mater, everyone was sincerely gener-
ous in his praise and enthusiasm for this
new building with its many advantages.

and high school dances, they all realized .mundsosmoomy
again that adequate facilities for activities
do indeed add to the pleasure and success
of such ventures. Gratitude is due to those citizens who have made all this possible.
Finally came the evening of December sixthw-the evening of the formal dedicatory cere-
mony, when the building was officially pledged to 'lthe perpetuation and improvement of demo-
cratic society and representative government"-that is to the development of good citizenship
and real Americanism, something far more fundamental than building and equipment. And so,

S SOPHCMORES we entered the small door of what is now the Carrie E.
Morgan School. For two years we worked in pursuit of a high school education
in that building which was overcrowded and from which we could derive full
benefit only with difficulty. ln the fall of last year we had the privilege of enter-
ing Appletgxigfs new senior high school as members of the senior class. Now we
go forth from the wide and spacious portals of that new building as the first
Our entrance into and exit from high school symbolizes our development
during our high school years. When we entered those small doors of the old
building, we were small both physically and mentally. While we were inside
those doors, we grew in stature and intelligence. Some grew more than others
througligtll kcentrated effort. As We exit now, our increased knowledge has
given 'ide vision-wide as the doors from which we go forth. What remains
now is for us to put into practical application those things we did learn in high
The class of '39 may look back with pride to its record in scholarship,
athletics, dramatics, and forensics. Our scholastic record is enviable. Senior
athletics have maintained high ideals of sportsmanship in varsity and intra-
mural competition. Senior girls were outstanding in declamation. Many students
participated in debate, oratory, and extemporaneous speaking.
The class of '39 regrets passing on into the history of Appleton High School.
Our hope is that the new building we leave and the record we have made will
serve as an inspiration for those who follow in our footsteps to keep Appleton
High School forever on top.

K UNIORS have a distinction peculiarly their own: they can
be themselves. They are no longer sophomores struggling
to find their place in the sun, nor are they seniors attempting
to live up to a new-found dignity. Theirs is an assurance
born of experience and anticipation.
This year their three-act production, "The Late Christo-
pher Bean," proved that they could match the seniors in
dramatic ability. Although this was the first year that the
class attempted a full-length drama, its success will un-
doubtedly establish a tradition. Both witty and whimsical,
the story of the obscure little painter whose "daubs" became
so valuable had the audience alternately tearful and laughing.
The opportunity ot entertaining the school in an assembly
has been limited to senior vodvil until this year when the
junior talent show was presented. Proving that they were
in tune with their times, juniors won plaudits for their swing
music, their throaty singers, and thai skilled tumblers.
In the field of sports, the juniors boast that one ot their
number ranks among the valley's high scorers in basketball.
Home Room 318, winners in the class basketball tourney,
gave the seniors sturdy opposition, although they failed to
take the school championship.

BRAND new senior high school and a new, enthusiastic
sophomore class: that was the picture last fall. The first year
of opportunities has passed: sophomores have taken part in
all activities open to them and have been especially success-
ful in crashing band, orchestra, and chorus.
Bouquets of orchids to the class for presenting the first
and one of the most original assembly programs. Highlights
were throaty torch singing from a sophomore songbird, a
modern Punch and ludy show, and assorted interpretations
of hill-billy crooning.
ln the field of varsity athletics the class of '41 showed
unusually well: newspaper headlines frequently directed
readers' attention to basketball, football, and track stars.
Home Room 204, which just defeated Home Room 229 in
the finals, won the sophomore basketball championship and
competed against junior class champions. The swimming
team conquered the juniors and gave the seniors stiff opposi-

The Craftsmanship Shield, the highest senior honor vfliicl- can
be achieved by a student during his high school career, goes this
year to William Wolfe, who was chosen recipient by a faculty poll.
Selection is made on the basis of excellence in character, leadership.
scholarship, and service. This award, one of the oldest traditions oi
Appleton High School, dates from 1916. The bronze shield, engraved
with the winner's name and mounted on solid oak, is a tribute not
only to his fine accomplishments during his past three years' Work,
but is also a prophecy of future success and high achievement.
William's list of extra-curricular activities speaks for itself as to
his marked leadership and his unusual versatility in student affairs.
His years ot work on the Talisman, the weekly newspaper, were
climaxed by the co-editorship in his senior year. For three years he
has been a member of the Student Council. This last year he was a
member of the senior cabinet. His name is included also in the
membership lists of Der Deutsche Verein, the German Clubg Masque
and Book Club, in which ne Was corresponding secretaryg Trojan

An excellent scholastic rating, consistently high for three years,
undeniable attributes oi character, and outstanding service to his
school have made William highly deserving of the honor accorded
him. This award is a merited culmination to a full high school career.
For seventeen years, since 1922, on Awards Day, the Oney
lohnston Post No. 38 of the American Legion has presented an award
to that senior boy who has shown himself most outstanding in partici-
pation in athletics during his three years of high school, and who
has excelled in scholarship and been prominent in extra-curricular
work as well. The medal is awarded, in short, to a boy who best
represents the true spirit of the Appleton High School athlete.
William Besch has been selected winner of this honor for the
year 1938-1939. William has achieved unusual success in the three
major sports-football, basketball, and track. For two years he starred
in football contestsg in his senior year he was chosen to captain the
varsity basketball squad. As a sophomore he was a member of
second teams in both sports. His track record, covering three years,
is most commendable. ln addition to these achievements in the field
of varsity sports, he has been prominent in the newly enlarged intra-

Richard Elias has been selected winner of the
Bausch and Lomb Honorary Science Award pre-

three year science course, which includes biology,
chemistry, and physics. William Wolfe and lohn
Trautmann were awarded honorable mention.
lames Donohue, chosen in a secret ballot by
members of Der Deutsche Verein, the German Club,
at its annual spring banquet, has been awarded the
German Club plague. This honor is presented each

ficiency in his grasp of the subject.
The Lawrence College chapter of Eta Sigma Phi,
honorary classical fraternity, annually presents the

in the classical subject have been outstanding.
Eleven junior L were selected this year by the
junior faculty sponsors and an American Legion
committee to attend the Badger Boys' state which
will be held at St. lohn's Military Academy in Dela-

the forty-ninth state is to give these boys a knowledge
of the fundamental principles of American govern-
ment through actual practice in the offices of city,
county, and state.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Thirty seniors, fifteen boys and fifteen girls, the
largest award group in Appleton High School's his-
tory, were formally inducted into the National Honor
Society Wednesday afternoon, May 3, at a reception
held in the Early American room. Election by the
faculty to this society is attained by those students
who are outstanding in character, scholarship, leader-
ship, and service. It is acknowledged as onegot the
highest forms of recognition a senior can receive.
Because of the increased library facilities this
year the number of student librarians was increased
to fourteen. These persons, all seniors, were chosen
because of their school spirit, outstanding scholar-
ship, dependability, and leadership. Their duties
include much more than charging books and return-
ing them to the shelves. Equally important are the
unseen jobs ot slipping returned books, counting
and recording daily circulation, delivering fine and
overdue notices, filing book cards, and assisting
students who make requests at the desks.
Miss Adela Klumb receives the signatures of the new members ot the
national honor society while Mr. Ketchum, chairman of the faculty
committee in charge ot awards, offers the emblems ot the organization
and the congratulations of the faculty. Miss Mielke, head librarian, in

The Appleton High School's Student Council has as its aims
the promotion of school spirit and assistance in student govern-
ment and administration. Representatives and assistants from each
homeroom were elected at the beginning of the year to take
charge ot homeroom activities such as distributing the Talisman,
collecting weekly finance plan dues, and passing out tickets to
lyceums, athletic contests, and other programs. The group also
sponsored several informal dances and published the Student

MASQUE AND BOOK
Distinctly novel in the history of the Masque and Book Club
was the alumni banquet held this year in February. Each old and
new member was invited to frolic in mittens and scarfs at a make-
believe winter resort. lt was cold-and fun.
Originality is a characteristic ot this organization. Mcst
unusual was the initiation of the new members which was cele-
brated at a potluck supper. Bumps and falls aplenty the unfortu-
nate but happy members received at an indoor roller skating
party. Dramatic and comedy skits, monologs and book reports were
presented at regular meetings. The Burns Mantle book, "Best
Plays of l938," was purchased for the club library. En masse the
club attended an operetta at Lawrence Memorial Chapel. A
high spot of the year's events was the production of a play acted
and directed by club members.

Welcoming new girls of Appleton High School at a get-
together party was the first activity the Girl Reserves undertook.
To aim towards high ideals is the fundamental purpose of the
Girl Reserves, a club limited to forty members because the social
meetings are held at private homes. The girls strive to strengthen
their character by serving the school as well as various other
organizations. Among the projects the club carried during the
year was the selling of pencils, the profit of which bought food,
toys, and clothing for needy families at Christmas time. A candle-
light service for formal initiation of new members was held at the
Hearthstone in the fall. Business meetings were held every second
and fourth Wednesday afternoon of the month at school while the
social meetings were held every first and third Tuesday evening.
At these social gatherings talks devoted to travel, literature, and
vocations were given by several prominent business women in-
cluding Ruth Cope, Dean of Women at Lawrence, Nell Chamber-
lain, society reporter of the Appleton Post-Crescent, and Gertrude
Fentnor, interior decorator.
These young ladies looking so glamorous in the candlelight are at the
annual GR. initiation banque t. In the lower picture Dorothy Ogilvie
is preparing the initiates for the impressive candlelight ceremony.

A widely diversified program of reports on life and customs
of France, designed to make students more familiar with the
language and traditions of the natives, was carried out this year
by En Avant, the French club. Since this is the organization's
last year, members made the most of their opportunities.
At one of the monthly meetings, Sallie Rothchild, a fellow
student, gave an interesting account of her trip to Europe. She
illustrated her talk with movies. To increase their speaking pro-
ficiency, students enacted French skits and carried on conversa-
At the Christmas meeting gifts and the traditional original
French greeting cards were exchanged. The members enjoyed
singing carols and initiating new members. This club thought of
others too: at Christmas time toys were distributed to the poor. A
grand finale of an interesting year was the annual banquet.
A long way "Forward" the club has come since it was origi-
nated in 1934. We will miss the parlez-vous francais's and bon
jour's floating around the halls as much as we will miss En Avant
among the activities next year.

standing ot the year's events, the organization's activities lacked no
variety this season. Beginning with a get-acquainted matinee dance for
all German students and following through with such events as the
hilarious "bad taste" party, the annual banquet, exchange parties with
the Neenah high school's German Club, and the singing of familiar old
carols over the public address system late in December, Der Deutsche
Verein's program was widely diversified. With an eye to the purpose of
the organization-to acquaint members more thoroughly with German
customs and literature-German games were played and colorful
reports on the country's tradition and manners were given by the
students at the social meetings.
"Stille Nacht, Stille Nacht" . . . Richard Elias, Dorothy I-Ieilig,
and Bob Bohn are the merry carolers who spread Yuletide cheer
over the public address system just before Christmas recess.

To encourage and instill in the minds of the students an
interest in early Roman lite and customs is the aim of Foedus
Latinum. The meetings were conducted by officers typical ot early
Roman government. Members frequently entertained the citizens
at social meetings at which Roman games were played and Latin
skits presented. The spring picnic, a tradition ot the club, climaxed
the year's activities.
The Commercial Club, made up ot outstanding students in the
commercial department, has proved to be one of the most active
and versatile organizations in school. In addition to the regular
meetings, which were enlivened by short plays and speakers, the
club held a wiener roast on the lake shore at Neenah and a Christ-
mas party in the Early American room. Members had programs
printed for the homecoming game and distributed baskets to
Appleton's needy on both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

It's Wednesday evening, and sounds reminiscent of Wall
Street come from the physics lab: the Philatelic Society is holding
another trading session. The high school's only club for collectors
attracted so many stamp fans that hardly a day passed without a
few 'lbugs" negotiating "big business" in room 344. Members
frequently posted interesting articles on stamps and stamp collect-
ing on the science bulletin board. During the year local adult
Collectors spoke to the club on their hobby.
"Good Deed Club" seems to be an excellent nickname for the
Nature Club, for the greater part of their activities this year were
of direct benefit to the school. Members constructed Christmas
holly wreaths for every door in the buildingg the natural science
museum was furnished and classifiedg shrubbery and trees were
planted, and a movie machine for showing scientific movies to
biology classes was purchased with proceeds from a plant sale.

Deadlines-truly a big worry for the Talisman staff. Stories are
due on Wednesday, and copy is due at the Post-Crescent Monday
morning so the paper will be ready to be set up early Tuesday morn-
ing. The editors, copy readers, headline writers, and typists work
regularly Thursday and Friday after school. The sixth hour and Tues-
day night staff meetings are devoted to the study and discussion cf
journalism. This year the 'lTally" won the All-American rating oi the
National Scholastic Press Association tor the fourth consecutive year.
The Talisman is an entirely extra-curricular activity. Staff mem-
bers receive no grade or credit for the time or work expended other
than the satisfaction of receiving experience of a truly professional
caliber. One of the aims of the newspaper is to issue an eightspage
weekly instead of the present four-page paper, which is frequently
crowded for space.
Responsible for the financing of the paper, the capable ad and bus-
iness statfs solicited advertising and kept the "Tally" out of debt.

Deadlines piling up while harried editors and staff members blues
pencil copy and dash off articles by the dozen, earnest discussions going
on about new layouts that are modern and attractiveg photographers,
inspired and flashbulb-laden, rushing on assignments-these are but a
few of the varied activities of the Clarion editorial staff. The managing
of all the intricate details of finance-the sponsorships and the sub-
scriptions-is the duty of the more than efficient business staff.
Few high school organizations have the lasting effect both on those
who take part in it and the student body in general that the Clarion has.
lt is read avidly, autographed, laid away-and then returned to again
and again to bring back memories of school days. lt is, then, the duty
cf the Clarion staff to publish a book that will ably stand the test of years.
This year the Clarion celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary as an
annual publication. The book has been enlarged this year to one hundred
twelve pages, making possible a larger, more elaborate opening section
picturing the new high schcol building and an enlarged activities section.

was the first major junior production in six years and also the first full length play in the new
Built around the paintings of the late Chris Bean, supposedly owned by Doctor l-laggett and
his family, the plot becomes involved as the paintings suddenly become valuable. During the
hunt for more pictures the prices offered multiply. All are recovered after feverish searching,
and Doctor Haggett is about to sell the treasures when it is found that they belong to Abby, the
maid, who had been secretly married to the artist.
The unusual cooperation between the director, the cast, the backstage groups, and the
business staff resulted in an initial performance which set a high standard for the productions
that followed. An amateur presentation, professionally interpreted. Congratulations, juniors!

Revolving around Emma Woodhouse and
her knack for matchmaking, the plot unfolds
revealing her own longing for romance. She
continues, however, to try to lead other
women of her acquaintance into marriage.
When her predictions and plans go awry, she
resigns herself to a life of spinsterhood. But
such a state is not for Emma, and the play is
brought to a fitting climax as she accepts the
gallant proposal of the handsome Mr.
Knightley. All characters were nobly in-
terpreted. Distinctive costumes and an at-
tractive setting created a typical Georgian
The production was outstanding not only
because of the plot, but rather because of the
extraordinary opportunities to feature fine
acting ability. "Romances by Emma" proved
once again that the senior class play is the

The fine acoustical properties of the beautiful band room
and the new practice rooms contributed mightily to the out-
standing success of the l939 band in concert and on parade.
The band, under the skillful baton of Mr. E. C. Moore, was one
of the first musical organizations to perform in the new audi-
torium. Following the appearance in the after-Christmas
assembly, fearful students, shaking in their boots, were the
order of the day-testing time had rolled 'round again, and
the number "Wedding cf the Winds" was given a thorough
work-out as a basis for testing. Again this year each band
member was given an opportunity to advance in his own
section by challenging the player above him. One of the
high lights of the year's activities was the music festival held
in May, at which members of the Shorewood band, orchestra,
and chorus were Appleton's guests at a joint concert and a
dance in the gym.
As a fitting close to a full year, the annual formal dance
was held again at the Riverview Country Club. In an atmos-
phere of soft lights and sweet swing the seniors said good-bye to
the fine organization which they had helped to a successful year.

The impressive long blue robes and golden stoles worn by
members of Appleton High Schools chorus, under the direc-
tion of Mr. A. A. Glocksin, heightened the enjoyment of the
frequent audiences before which the group appeared this
year. The original number of eighty-five singers who began
chorus work in the fall was augmented later by new students.
Do, re, mi, fa . . . each morning the voices of diligent
choristers could be heard floating up from the rehearsal
room beneath the auditorium stage, practisinq Scales and
exercises. Activities of the group have been greatly improved
by the facilities offered by the new music department, rooms
being provided for sectional rehearsals and for the soloists
who spend long, arduous hours studying their notes. The
first formal concert took place at the dedication of the sohoolp
following were several recitals in assembly periods and the
joint concert with Shorewood High School in May. Six boys
in the chorus who showed unusual promise-Leo Griesbach,

High Schools grid squad turned in a not perfect but fighting record. The team ended up Cor downl

The Terrors opened the season in the wettest weather this side of the Atlantic. In the game
with St. Mary's ot Menasha, Menasha took a 6-O lead at the halt. Atter a deep discussion during

for 47 yards. The point alter touchdown tailed, and the game ended 6-6.

For the opening conference game Appleton
traveled to Fond du Lac not only to play foot-
ball but also to help dedicate a new lighting
system. Appleton put a kink in the dedication
by defeating its opponents 7-6.
Sheboygan Central played host to the
Terrors the following week. Sheboygan came
out to open with a superior aerial attack and
scored twice in the first half, while Filz scored
once for Appleton. The Chairs led 13-7 at the
half. Appleton came out refreshed to score
three touchdowns the second half and add one
extra point. Sample scored through the line,
Swamp passed two touchdown passes to
Buesing, and the final score stood 26-13.
The Appleton gridmen played on home
territory October 8. The West Green Bay
team was too strong an opponent for the
Terrors, however, for the squad took an early
lead and held it to the final whistle. Appleton
ended on the short side of a l3-0 score.
The Colemen entered the next week's
game at full power but were still too weak to
overcome the powerful Manitowoc eleven
and the Scotch backfield. Although Koehnke
scored two touchdowns for the home folks,
the half time tally was 13-6 for Manitowocy
and the final score stood 25-14 in favor of the
After being rained out on a Friday night,
Appleton traveled again on a Monday to clash
with a small but tricky East Green Bay squad.
East had complete control over Appleton from
the kickoff to the end. They ran, kicked, and
passed to give the Terrors a 20-O trouncing.
Sheboygan North, a new school in the Fox
River Valley Conference, succumbed to the
Terrors in a non-conference game, Appleton's
preparation for the homecoming tilt the follow-
ing week. Sample scored two touchdowns for
his alma mater and led his team to a 16-6
victory. Two points after touchdowns and a
safety made up the other four points.
ln keeping with the exhilaration that
accompanied the opening of the new school,
Appleton staged a gala festival for homecom-

ing. Activities commenced on Thursday eve-
ning, November tenth, with the pep parade
and bonfire. Almost every organization in
school and many ot the Hi-Y's entered floats
in the parade. The Ford Hi-Y iloat ot Snutty
Smith, "gunnin' tor them Shittless lnjunsf'
won first honors. The parade, led by the band,
ended at Schneider field, across from the
high school, where a pep meeting was held
around a huge bonfire. Mayor lohn Good-
land, lr., Principal H. H. Helble, Coach
Wallace Cole, and Field Captain Warren
Buesing spoke at the rally.
The homecoming game was played on
Armistice Day at Whiting Field. The team came
out enthusiastically and opened a passing and
running attack that carried it to the shadows
of the enemies' goal post but no tarther. The
Indians made two marches that netted them
13 points but were held at a comtortable
distance during the rest ot the game. The
tinal score showed Oshkosh on the long end
ot a l3-O final.
Running second to the homecoming tes-
tivities was the football banquet given by the
Lawrence Men's Club for the victorious
Lawrence College Vikings with the Terrors
as guests. Five hundred sports enthusiasts
from Appleton and the vicinity attended the
celebration honoring the two teams. Players
were introduced to the audience, and awards
were presented to both squads. Many former
stars of Appleton High and Lawrence College
attended. Fritz Crisler, head coach at the
University ot Michigan, was the principal
speaker. "Frozz" Kamps and Warren Buesing
were named honorary captains of the l938
gridders at the dinner.
Those boys receiving awards were: Charles
Balliet, Russel Becher, William Besch, Ray
Brasch, Warren Buesing, Francis Crabb,
Robert De Leest, Sonny Fitz, Allan Fraser,
Donald Heinritz, Frank Kamps, Robert Koehnke,
Henry Koletzke, Carol Cramer, Tom Reider,
Charles Rollins, Charles Sample, George
Swamp, and Manager Robert Massonet.

Since these boys will make up the future
Terror varsity, they were taught the same
fundamental plays as the Colemen. The team
showed great promise in its scrimrnages with
the varsity "subs" Coach Marvin Babler
worked each afternoon getting the boys in
condition. When the team traveled to Neenah
to play a regulation game with the Rocket
sophomores, the full squad was given a chance
to show its stuff. A promising superiority was
demonstrated all the way, but that final power
needed to score was missing. The sophs held
Neenah scoreless with a sturdy defense, and
the game ended in a O-G tie. Some of the boys

UBoy! A new gym and everything! l'm certainly going out for basketball this year." With
these words 50 boys reported for scrimmage one day last November. Many were "cut," and
finally only three teams remained. Fifteen boys made up the varsity, but the number dwindled
to twelve by the end of the season. Although Appleton ended in fourth place in the conference
rating, the team was one of the most dangerous. Six games were lost, but the Terror cagers
never dropped a tilt by more than five points.
ln accordance with a new conference rule, Appleton played two pre-season games, the
new set limit. Opening the season and initiating the new gym, Appleton defeated St. Mary's
of Menasha by a 29-19 score. Besch led the scoring with ll points. ln the second non-conference
game the team placed high over Neenah, 21-14. Buesing, Besch, and Bailey each scored six
To open conference play, the Terrors traveled to West Green Bay, where they failed to win
a closely fought battle, the final score
showed 23-21. Buesing scored seven points
for the losers. In the last fifteen seconds of
play in the next game with Sheboygan
North, Appleton won, 22-215 a last-minute
basket by Bailey ended the contest. Fraser
collected ten points. The team traveled next
to Fond du Lac with a 500 per cent average.
Although the boys played without Besch,
star center, Fraser took the game into his
own hands, scoring seventeen points: and
Appleton, in an overtime period, chalked
up a 33-29 Win.
ln dedicating the new gym, .Appleton
clashed with Wausau, state champs of last
season, and turned back the out-of-town
boys in a non-conference battle, 28-23.
Fraser again led the scoring with thirteen
points. Entering conference play again,
Appleton met defeat at the hands of East
Green Bay, 30-28, with Buesing receiving
scoring honors for eight points.

Again at a SOO per cent average, the Terrors
met the powerful Oshkosh team. Although they
played a better brand of ball than the Indians,
Oshkosh won, 23-19. Morris was high point
man. Appleton headed for defeat once more
when the team went to Manitowoc, for the final
score stood at 26-22. At Sheboygan Central
the boys finished far ahead, 39-25. Morris and
Fraser were high scorers.
Starting the second round, the Terrors held
the fire of revenge and succeeded in smashing
West Green Bay, 25-18. Morris again scored
seven points. They met Fond du Lac again, but
under different conditions. Continuing the Win-
ning splurge, they disabled Fond du Lac, 30-18.
Fraser was high scorer again, raising his total
ten more points.
ln the next conference game with Sheboygan
Appleton gripped victory on a flash of free
throws in the final three minutes. The score
stood at 34-305 Morris and Werner shared hon-
ors. Hoping to get revenge for an earlier de-
feat, Appleton went to East Green Bay, where
the Red Devils proved victorious by a score of
32-27. Buesing scored nine points. Next the
Terrors traveled to Oshkosh, determined to
knock the lndians off their high perchg but after
a hard battle the final score stood 34-29 in
favor of Oshkosh. Buesing and Bailey scored
high for the losers.
Appleton, tight-lipped now, determined to
trim Sheboygan for the second time. Using two
entirely different teams by quarters, the Terrors
overcame a Sheboygan lead in the second half,
showered the hoop for twenty-two additional
points, and Won, 4032. Buesing and Besch
scored fourteen and twelve points, respectively.
Terror cagers entered the final contest of the
season with nine seniors showing in their last

Appleton High School "B" basketball squad chalked up a perfect season this year, winning
eighteen straight games. Coached by Myrlon Seims, the boys showed much more power than
any of their opponents. They started with a win which placed them on the top rung, a position
which they never relinquished. The most valuable victory was their overtime game over the
Kimberly varsity, leaders in their conference.
The squad, members of which will probably make up the majority of next year's HA" team,
played preliminaries to varsity games. Among those who saw action are Blacher, Cooper, Powers,
Rollins, Lathrop, Reider, Kliefoth, Bayer, De Long, Schabo, Kessler, Koehnke, and Scherzinger.
The sophomore team, under the direction of Coach Marvin Babler, went through an almost
perfect season also. This team is made up primarily to teach the inexperienced players the same
fundamentals taught to varsity and "B" squads. This season the team played the Appleton junior
highs and Y.M.C.A. teams. lohn Bartmann led the field in floor and shooting ability. Following
him were such boys as Bill Morris, Bob Bowers, Strutz, Piette, Rouse, Lesselyoung, and labas.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
Moonlight hikes, bruised knees, baskets for the needy, comradely good fellowship: these are but a few of the
memories which the members of the Girls' Athletic association will carry away this year.
About one hundred and fifty girls claim the honor of active membership in the G.A.A. And this is, indeed, an
honor, for no girl is admitted unless she has earned seventy-five points and has passed the test of initiation. Points are
earned by active participation in club activities and by service to the group. The blue and orange felt emblem is awarded
when one hundred and fifty points are obtained, a bronze medal for six hundred, and the official "A" of Appleton, the
highest award, for one thousand.
This year several new activities were added to the already extensive program of the G.A.A. Miss Eileen Hammer-
berg, physical education instructor, taught the girls basic dance forms and rhythms two nights a week after school:
Miss Carol Anderson, physical education instructor, directed them in their tumbling routines: and many of the girls
joined the boys in making bows and arrows down in the shops and in target shooting after class time or on Saturday
Activities for the G.A.A. are planned by the executive board and the physical education instructors. This year
Rita Merkel was president: Iean Thomas, vice president, Margaret Albrecht, secretary: Mary Ann Schaefer, treasurer,
and Enid Kutz, recording secretary. A sport leader and a hike leader from each ward also participated at the meetings
of the board.
In spite of the rainy fall the girls hiked, bicycled, and secured sore muscles playing field hockey and soccer.
When the weather began to keep them indoors, they ran off badminton, shuffleboard, and ping-pong tournaments in
addition to regular volleyball and basketball contests. December snows called out the toboggans and skiis to be used
on the nearby hills. The Y.M.C.A. was the scene of splash parties and bowling tourneys. Following the seasons, the
girls brought their tennis rackets down from the attic and unearthed the baseball bats in spring to take full advantage
of the eight concrete tennis courts and the new athletic field.
And so as the year rolls to an end on this continuous round of sports, members of the G.A.A. are convinced
that the unique facilities of the new gymnasium have helped them to fulfill their three-fold purpose: to promote par-
ticipation in intramural sports for girls, to support all school athletics by interest and enthusiasm, and to make the as-
sociation a power for good clean living among the girls of the school.

by the Big League baseball games, we had our own in the fall and a
tournament in the spring.
Clarice Holcomb and Doris lngenthron are the two girls who "shuf-
fled" on to win the shutfleboard tournament held on board the good ship
"Appleton." The participants of this tournament met after school and
played on the courts which are in the corridors surrounding the gym.
All day long visitors coming in had to dodge the flying discs, and even
after school the courts were usually in use.
The archery club is one of the new clubs inaugurated this year.
Forty members made their own equipment, and learned the history and
technique of shooting. They don't contend they're champions yet, but
by the end of the season they intend to be able to hit the broad side of
a barn at fifty paces. The girls working hard on their equipment in the
picture are Margaret Albrecht, lean Thomas, and Eunice Forster.
lt looks like a game of keep away between Mary Ann Holzer, Peggy
Boyer, and Ruth Blahnik, but it really is basketball. Maybe they are not
quite so good as the varsity boys, but they' re plenty cagey just the same.
Basketball was one of the leading intramural activities for girls.

An important part ot the girls' intramural program is
winter sport activities. Almost every Saturday during the
winter months the girls went coasting, skiing, hiking, or
skating. Highlights of this winter's program were a winter
outing held at Butte des Morts golf course and a sleigh ride
party. The pictures at the top of the page are shots taken at
the winter outing.

be worthy of playing on one of the eight concrete tennis
courts. Such form! The high school is bound to become tennis-
minded after listening to the Bobby Riggs assembly program
Here's Genevieve Schaeffer on the receiving end of her
sister's badminton service from the following page.
Cecelia Speel and Dorothy Van Handel are only two ot
the many girls who took advantage of the special room for
ping-pong playing. This year about forty girls participated
in the tournament, which was held early in the spring. The
beginners especially appreciated the new room because the
elusive white ball was easier to keep track ot in a smaller
territory. Gradually, after the ball had bounced everywhere
except on the table, the players began to develop skill. This
is the success story of most ot the ping-pong players.
At least one girl in the gym class is going places. Here's
Billie Kolb, a sophomore, playing Tarzan on the climbing
ropes. Perhaps the monkey characteristics are showing up,
or maybe she's training to be a fireman.
Stitt joints and aching muscles were direct results of the
girls' gym classes which worked on the stall bars. Betty Collins
and Grace Christensen are shown limbering up.
In the inter-class volleyball tournament the seniors, as
might be expected, came out aheadg and the sophs took the
"booby" prize. Margaret Albrecht, Betty Hilgendori, Mary
Ann Schaefer, and lane Christensen are playing an after-
school game in the small gym.
"lt floats through the air with the greatest ot ease." The
shuttle cock does, at any rate, when Mary Ann Schaefer hits
it. When the badminton tournament was held in the fall,
Mary Ann and her sister, Genevieve, allied forces to win
the doubles championship.
As new as the high school are the after school orchesis
groups which study modern dance forms. The work develops
poise and grace along with sore muscles. When these girls
meet twice a week under the direction of Miss Hammerberg,
they interpret the music and dramatize stories in rhythmical
motions. The girls in the picture may be acting out London
Bridge, who knows?

The big night before the big game! There's a snake dance down College Avenue, and colored lights and flares play on the thirty-one floats that
depict the hoped-for outcome of the Appleton High School homecoming football game! "It's in the Bag," prophesies the float on which a typical
A.H.S. boy and girl-call them Sammy and Susie-are hitching a ride as the procession winds crazily up to the pep rally. In the second picture
the last ilames from the huge bonfire that was the biggest feature of the gigantic meeting die away as Sammy and Susie watch. CContinued on the
The thought, the imagination, the products of many men went into the building of Appleton High
School. They not only helped in some Way to construct or equip this "million dollar high school," but also
assisted in the publication of this annual through their generous sponsorship. The Clarion extends its sincere
appreciation for this service.
