Benton, Mr. l. F. Behnke, Dr. G. T. Heqner, Mr. C. K, Boyer, and Mr. Robert McGillan, standing, deceased April l7, and Mr, lohn Wood, Mr. Benjamin I. Rohan, superintendent, Mr. Seymour Gmeiner, president of the board, and Miss Myra B. Hagen, secretary, seated. Mayor Iohn Goodland, lr., is formally presenting the school to Mr. Seymour Gmeiner, president of the school board, the night ot dedication. On Tuesday evening, December sixth, Appleton's new senior high school, ablaze with lights, was dedicated to the perpetuation of democracy. A capacity audience ot towns- people attended the impressive, three-hour dedicatory program. The three musical organizations of Appleton High School-the band, orchestra, and chorus -Dr. G. T. l-legner, a member ot the Board of Education, the Reverend F. C. Reuter, Mr. C. K. Boyer, chairman of the school board's building committee, Mr. H. H. Helble, high school principal, Mayor lohn Goodland, lr., and Mr. Seymour Gmeiner, president of the Board of Education, participated in the solemn cere- mony which pledged the new school to send into the community Uthoughts, concepts, atti- tudes, and principles which are fundamental in a democratic nation." "We dedicate this school to the perpetua- tion and improvement ot democratic society and representative government, to the develop- ment ot self-respect and the preservation ot human rightsethe supreme value ot the in- dividual, to the continuation and perpetuation of the working principles ot democracy- ,im-ass uiwiuwitm M N X, 'i fi 'TJ Q N -' " ' 'VI by .J 1, K, f rule by the majority yet safeguarding the minority." 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 Old Glory, a white-clad Statue of Liberty holding aloft a flaming torch, the symbol of freedom. 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. i I I i . - 1 'l - 1 .l , dim' .Zallm"iZZ'leRef!S " 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 possible. 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 year. 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 strives. - Mgawfrrytsmyrussltf K k.'r4 md MU o A X, 1 i r .

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. "I'd like to go back again," was the most frequent comment. l As students, alumni, and townspeople attended various events such as basketball , , , In the upper picture is Mr. Werner Witte, assistant principal and teacher of games: the JUU101' and Senlor class plays: nomics and sociology. Below are Miss Hilda Harm and Miss Margaret Thom - - office clerks, who attend to all those million details which make the whee 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, Sing her praises through the valley, Send them ringing on. Do great deeds for Alma Mater, Splendid Appleton. -MISS ELSIE MUELLER ami '13 FACUPTY W fl v N O LANGUAGE: Elsie Mueller, Ruth Becker, Minne Smith, Irene Bosserrnan, Sophia Haase HOME ARTS: Mildred Nickel, Catherine Spence, Sofia Nicolazzo LIBRARY: Kathryn Fralish, Ruth Mielke HISTORY: Kenneth Edge, Elsie Mueller, Edgar Hagene, Lois Gould, E.

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 graduating class. 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 school. 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.

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. ,' N' IUNIORS lames Agen, Grace Albrecht, Margaret Albrecht, Ione Alesch, Ellen Arnold, Don Ashel, Lisbeth Atcherson Fern Barth, Vivian Bartlein, Margaret Bartmann, Lois Bauernteind, Ruth Bauern- feind, Norman Bauhs, Margaret Baumler Gerald Bayer, Sylvester Bayer, Bob Bayley, Bernice Becher, Elmyra Behnke, Eunice Behnke, Paul Behrent Burton Belling, Delores Belling, lack Belling, loan Belonger, Dale Bergner, Kathryn Beringer, George Bernhagen Carlton Beschta, Kenneth Biebow, Ben Blacher, David Bliss, Wayne Bogan, Max Bohatschek, Donald Bohl Merlin Bohl, Iohn Boon, Fred Booth, Mary Brandenburg, Raymond Brasch, Carleton Brecklin, Donald Brittnacher Martin Brock, Orville Brockman, Bernice Brouillard, Leonard Brown, Iames Burke, Virginia Burke, Gladys Burmeister Gerald Busse, Iames Campbell, Rita Captain, Carlton Casper, Beryl Chady, Harold Choucloir, Bernadette Clark Marlyn Clark, Patricia Connelly, Gordon Cotter, Kenneth Courtney, Francis Crabb, Helen Crowe, Gerry Curnber Roy Damsheuser.

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- tion. TOP: Raoul SmithfRicharcl Smith. Though the name may be common the boys certainly are super!

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 Hi-Yg and Quill and Scroll, international honorary society for high school journalists. 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. f CUL,4..D-' 14 WILLIAM BESCH 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- mural program. Because of his remarkably varied and successful athletic career in high school Che has been an "A" letterman for two yearsl, his scholastic record, and the qualities of leadership which he has dis- played, William is a highly worthy recipient of the American Legion Athletic Award. 'Kiwi MJ M67 MMD .feginn rqwaluf Bill starred in many sports during his high school carserg but most notable was his work on the varsity basketball squad, of which he was captain.

This traditional election of two top-ranking students to the coveted position is a time-honored Appleton High School cus- tom. As always, this office carries respon- sibility and honor which give it a dignity equalled by few awards. The 1939 cus- todians of the flag, both prominent in scholastic and extra-curricular activities, have proved by their services that they are most deserving of the honor en- trusted them by their class. student councilors and faculty sponsors, winners of the Spector honor are those students who have been outstanding in their first year of senior high school and who have shown greatest promise for future achievement. A.A.U.W. Audrey Lemmer this year received the one hundred dollar scholarship to be applied on tuition charges at Lawrence College. Each year this award is presented by the Appleton branch of the Ameri- can Association of University Women to a senior girl who has ranked scholastically high, who has been a leader in extra-curricular affairs, and wh has displayed constantly high qualities of per u f ality and character. , I 66 S, "fc C gg N315 RE'Au SCIENCE AWARD Richard Elias has been selected winner of the Bausch and Lomb Honorary Science Award pre- sented annually by the science department in an attempt to encourage students in research in the fields of science.

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. LIBRARY STAFF 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.

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 Handbook. QUILL AND SCROLL The Quill and Scroll Society adopted this year a new name the Edward Weismiller Chapter, because Mr. Weismiller, an alumnus, has made his name outstanding in the field of literature. During this year the group sponsored the movie "Suez," published the creative writing booklet Patterns of Stardust, and held in February an alumni banquet. Iuniors and seniors on the Talisman and Clarion staffs who have excelled in editorial or business work are eligible tor membership.

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.

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.

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- tions. 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.

Bartz, Hughes DER DEUTSCI-IE VEREIN Scrooge, the vision-haunted hero of Dickens' "Christmas Carol", the famous ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future: the Cratchit family . . . all in German! This unusual event was presented by Der Deutsche Verein, the German Club, which chose this year as their annual Christmas production the German version of the famous Yuletide story. Although the presentation of the mid-year play is the most out- 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. Iames Donohue, Virginia Grist, and Bernice Bleick, members ot thje cast ot the Christmas play, are in conference with Miss Haase, a viser. P S- AJ 3 T S' 73 szwfeayezie few saws FOEDUS LATINUM 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. COMMERCIAL CLUB 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. The toga-clad cives here are Fred Heinritz, Israel Shilcrat, Elizabeth Wood Cstandinqj, and William DeLong, Ken Thompson, Frances Wheeler, and Norma Crow. Ruth Deschler, Kathleen Krause, Audrey Childs, and Virginia Ginnow are the absorbed Commercial Club members shown. I UPPER PICTURE Ctrontl: Lemmer, Wood, Foote, C.

I PHILATELIC SOCIETY 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. NATURE CLUB "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. Frequent hikes to Center Swamp for specimens topped the year's events.

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.

Sole rulers of the switchboard and the intricate work- ings of the backstage processes are the lighting and backstage groups. These talented young people are responsible for the manipulation ot the complicated systems ot pulleys and ropes controlling curtains and dropsg they also have created the colorful sets for all school productions this year. Appleton's Garbo's and Taylor's comprise the club's acting group. "Stolen Fruit," an amusing romantic comedy of the Plymouth Pilgrims, was the season's largest production. At each of the weekly meetings, however, members enacted excerpts trom Well-known dramas and dramatic sketches illustrating various stage techniques. Under the direc- tion ot Miss Ruth Mcliennan and Miss Kathryn Fralish, speech instructors, and lack Burroughs, biology in- structor, the students who earned membership in Cur- tain Call by serving a period ot apprenticeship received thorough, practical instruction in all the agencies involved in the presentation of a successful play. wrt 744 Seam Swan? 0141 .-fix The 1939 edition of the annual Senior Vodvil was presented to the students and, for the first time in its history, to the public on Wednesday afternoon, May 3. ln keeping with its colorful tra- dition, the acts were as rhythmical, as syncopated, and as thoroughly modern as the best current Broadway hit.

Weeks of preparation--rehearsing lines, painting new scenery, testing new lighting effectse then, on February 24, the junior class play, t'The Late Christopher Bean." This performance was the first major junior production in six years and also the first full length play in the new auditorium. 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.

After a mo- mentary pause of admiration for the superb set, the audience settles back to enjoy two hours of entertainment by dramatists of the senior class. 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 atmosphere. 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 dramatic event of the year.

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.

Six boys in the chorus who showed unusual promise-Leo Griesbach, Emerson lury, lohn Meyer, Robert Meyer, Roland Vogt, and Ralph Woehler-were organized this year into a sextet. Accompanied by Lois Seith several programs were presented for school and civic organizations. We can practically hear the earnest 'Xml-mi'mi's" from the members of the Second chorus pictured here.

The team ended up Cor downl in filth place in the conference with two wins and tour losses. The team won and tied in two non- conierence battles. 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 the halt time, Appleton came out and scored on the first play when George Swamp ran oft tackle for 47 yards. The point alter touchdown tailed, and the game ended 6-6.

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 Shipbuilders. 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- 1.

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. l.

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.

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 points. 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.

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 game for Unew A.H.S."

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.

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 mornings. 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. fave U?

Inspired by the Big League baseball games, we had our own in the fall and a tournament in the spring. 5 - 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. Nwiwuf- 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. 8 - lt looks like a game of keep away between Mary Ann Holzer, Peggy Boyer, and Ruth Blahnik, but it really is basketball.

Wfinfen Speak- 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. 106 f-i lafqfQ1-0 SIAQ, ou 3 - Nancy McKee sinks a shot from mid-floor. fOh, yeah'?l Anyway, she hit the bounding board. .Baskin Ranm- Hurry up, tie up that shoe lace quickly, Helen Fox.

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. flapee' - At least one girl in the gym class is going places. Here's Billie Kolb, a sophomore, playing Tarzan on the climbing ropes.
