Typical ot Appleton l-ligh School graduates in many branches ot the service are Lieutenant Edward Blessman, who was the first
grafluate to be killed in action, Lieutenant Elizabeth Radtke, an army nurse, Seaman Vilas Burmeiser, Lieutenant Robert Vogt ot
the Air Corps, Private Paul Radtlce ot the Army and Lieutenant lohn Rosebush ot the Marines.
In the Service
The above pictures are representative ot Appleton High School alumni and their lives in the services.
As you can see, our graduates have tound places in every branch ot the armed torces. These are only a
tew ot the tormer students who have answered the call to serve their country.
lt past pertormances are any indication ot what is to come, we may expect all the alumni to give a good
account ot themselves. The pictures you see posted hero are only torerunners ot the many people who have
onlorcd thc sorviccs since thc war began.
A School At War
A school at war is not unlike a nation at war. lf an almost universal conversion to the war effort has
affected our everyday life, it has also left a very definite imprint upon our school life. A reflection of the
national emergency is to be seen in the entire high school curriculum for l942-43. .
The first tangible evidence of things to come was seen in the purchase of the magnificent stained
glass windows. The windows were dedicated as a memorial to the sons and daughters of Appleton High
School who served their country in World War ll.
ln keeping with the criteria set by our national government, the school instituted several courses
which would more adeguately prepare its students for an active part in the war effort. Our gym classes
were revamped to accommodate a new physical fitness program designed along military line's. An aviation
science course was introduced to acguaint senior boys with the science and math involved in aeronautics.
A pre-induction math class was started to help the senior boys brush up on math.
Students were recruited to give victory talks to civic organizations. Each student spoke on the civil-
ian's place in the war effort.
To afford the students an accessible and convenient place to buy War Stamps and Bonds, the office
set up a bond booth. The personnel of the booth sponsored drives timed to correspond with patriotic oc-
casions. As an added project they fostered a l'Buy a leep" week, in which the students were asked to
purchase S900 worth of bonds or enough to buy a jeep. The students and faculty also took an active part
in the host of scrap drives and registrations which appeared at regular intervals.
All of these things combined make up the school's contribution to the war effort. lt is in recognition
of the yeoman service rendered by all groups to hasten the day of final victory that the following pages
have been dedicated. Thus we have chosen as our theme 'TA School at War."
A Student's War Activities
Although the cartoon on this page may seem
only a cartoon, it is symbolic of the high school stu-
dent in the war effort. The students of the high
school have a finger in almost everything that per-
tains to the war and its host of salvage drives along
with anything else that the war entails.
Because these activities have occupied the
major portion of student life, the following pages
have been devoted to a pictorial and printed record
of these unusual times. The camera has caught the
students going about their war-time duties at school.
For a more detailed survey of student war conduct,
stories flavored with themes of present-day interest
accompany the pictures.
Since the days in which this CLARTON is being
assembled and published occupy such a critical
period in our history, we are presenting it in such
a manner that you will be able to refer to it in future
years and relive the days of this era. You will be
able to appreciate how the stress of the times af-
fected the course of your high school life.
The rapid changes which result from war have
made it difficult to set a definite pattern and follow it
religiously. Fellows have been leaving school regu-
larly and entering the armed forces. Teachers have
been accepting outside positions, and the civilian de-
mands on the school appeared at regular intervals.
All of these factors have contributed to a sort of chaos
which has demanded a flexible policy on the part
of our publication. ln offering you the 1943 edition
of the CLARION we have tried to depict faithfully the
atmosphere which surrounds a school at war.
Representative of the many students who faithfully purchased bonds
and stamps are lim Kluge and Marie Pelczynski, who are buying
stamps from Florence loecks and Miss Locksmith.

Aside from the other responsibilities that the
students of Appleton High School have accepted,
they have also faithfully purchased war bonds and
stamps each week. In recognition of its effort the
government has awarded the school a minute man
flag. This flag was formerly awarded only to war
production plants which had increased their pur-
chase of bonds to a total of 90511, of their workers
That we have been honored with this presen-
tation is indeed an honor of which we can be duly
proud. This is just one example of the spirit dis-
played here at school by everyone. Teachers as
well as students have accepted the challenge
which has been thrust at us and have performed
admirably. From what has been done no one
can doubt that the high schools of the nation
are an important factor in the successful prose-
cution of the war effort. This year was just a
start and next year with the experimental stage
over even greater success can be expected.
Each student volunteered immediately when
any duty was suggested. The number of stu-
dents who became vitally interested in first aid
and in civilian defense increased rapidly as
the year progressed.
Bond and stamp drives netted the school a
visit from a jeep. Miss Lila Locksmith, Uncle
Sam's representative in Appleton High School,
was the first to ride in the jeep.
The conversion of all the activities of the
school both curricular and extra-curricular was
immediate and complete.

Before one can learn math, science, or any
other subject he must have a thorough working
knowledge of the English language. The aim of the
English department is to help the students utilize
the basic principles of good expression both oral
and written to the fullest extent.
This year as a result of the war the teachers have
emphasized the all-important traits of precision and
accuracy which are essential to army or civilian
life. The students have been guided in a full aware-
ness of the present situation through extensive read-
ing. Long vocabulary lists of words pertaining to
war and specialized knowledge were studied and
learned so that the classes could add to their all-
around fitness. Long hours of study have been re-
warded by considerably enlarged vocabularies and
an increased fluency of both writing and speaking.
The non-college senior English classes have
organized clubs which meet during class time.
Presidents, vice-presidents, secretaries, treasurers,
sergeants-at-arms: all learn how to fulfill their
duties most efficiently. Reports on authors, poets,
branches of the service, and other enlightening
subjects are given as entertainment at the meetings.
This serves a double purpose as the students are
instructed through pleasure.
All contact with great literature and the human-
ities has not been completely eliminated to make
way for the streamlined English courses. The well-
rounded individual is the goal of every class, and
a sincere appreciation of literature contributes no
small part to this aim. Much fine literature has been
produced during the war, and the classes study
particularly all the greatest productions of their
Much specialized study has been incorporated
into the new English program. The study of V-mail
and letter writing has been particularly stressed as
one of the newer contributions to the civilian and
army morale. Many boys are planning on entering
the service soon, so they have to be helped in giv-
ing and receiving clear, efficient orders. All the
people who are planning on entering office work
must be given a thorough foundation in the mechan-
ics of writing so that they can save as many man-
hours as possible. Then, too, most people have to
know how to fill out innumerable questionnaires
and registration blanks. Students are taught how to
read these blanks comprehendingly and to fill

them out clearly. This will be a help not only to
themselves but also to everyone with whom they
come in contact.
There has been a greater emphasis upon being
able to express oneself orally. Without infringing
upon specialized speech training the English de-
partment has tried to help students overcome shy-
ness and an unwarranted reticence. Self-expression
in all fields is fostered, and much opportunity is
provided every student to write, read, or express
his originality in every form.
Being able to find material for himself helps
each student to increase his own independence and
to save work for others. Every sophomore has a
course in library exploration to further this end,
and much individual research is stressed through-
out the three years of high school training.
The army and navy's demand for more thorough
education in English has resulted in the intensifi-
cation of this course. ln all army and navy tests
vocabulary plays an important partg thus in order
to meet the requirements of these groups a thorough
knowledge of our language is necessary.
The English classes, therefore, gave each stu-
dent a chance to express himself in two waysg
namely, in writing and speech. These were devel-
oped with the strengthening of the personality in
View as well as technical mastery. Personality plays
an important part in the success of an officer in the
armed forces and this is so often neglected in Eng-
lish study. By speaking before the class the student
developed poise and overcame that uneasy feeling
that people so often suffer.
ln keeping with our high standards the regular
curriculum was not neglected. Although the de-
mands of war could not be ignored, still they could
not be allowed to completely displace the regular
English program. The effective manner with which

these two problems were handled and blended
into one well-rounded course is indeed a tribute to
the English department of our school.
Through the concerted effort of every teacher
and student the department hopes to make a well-
rounded individual of each high school student,
and by cooperating with all the departments in the
school to help each student realize all of his ability.

The weekly outpouring ot news and vin-ws in
and about the premises ot Appleton High School is
to be tound in The TALISMAN, the weekly publi-
cation. The "Tally" is a paper that cannot l5il under-
estimated. Each week, through the ettorts ol the
etlicient editorial statt, the Talisman comets otl the
press with current news and intorination as well as
the various entertaining articles and editorials. The
advertising statt, headed by Robert DeWitt, has
done an especially fine piece ol work this year in
obtaining ads and should be given a great deal ot

The talent among the students of Appleton High
School is really brought to the fore when they try their
ambitions in writing for the "Patterns of Star Dust,"
which is a publication of creative writing sponsored by
the Edward Weissmiller chapter of the Quill and Scroll.
The work that goes into the publication is appalling,
but the result makes it worthwhile.
The meetings of the organization are held on the
third Monday of every month, and there are many
speakers at these meetings. Each student elected into
Quill and Scroll has something of which to be proud,
for it is the only active honorary organization in the
school. Qnly the students who have completed at least
a year of work on the Talisman or Clarion editorial or
business staffs, who are juniors or seniors with a high
scholastic record, and who are recommended by their
advisor are eligible for membership.
ln addition to its regular program the organization
this year has made several afghans for the Red Cross,
and the emphasis of the program has been on an aware-
ness of our world situation. Many speakers have served
to increase the members' understanding and to open
new avenues of endeavor. The club also helps to edit
the Student Handbook, which is published for the con-
venience and help of every student in school. Quill and
Scroll not only fills the role of an honorary organization,
but it has proven itself to be extremely functional.

The library this year is centered almost entirely
around the war. Newspapers, magazines, books, and
pamphlets which will be most helpful to the students
are always at hand. The war information bulletin
board always has some display of interest to the stu-
dents. The pictures taken by the Post-Crescent and
other papers of various high school activities and
persons are posted.
In the school paper, the Talisman, the library
has a column of book reviews headed "Library
Lingo." This column helps everyone to know the
outstanding books in the library, and it gives an
accurate description of each book.
The sophomore English classes study a unit on
the library each year to acguaint them with the
library in all ways. Each sophomore class visits the
library and is given a talk on it by a librarian. Our
library is one of the best eguipped of any state high
school, and the students are efficiently helped to
make the fullest use of it.
The student librarians are chosen on recommen-
dation of teachers and must excel in scholarship,
leadership, dependability, and popularity. Those
that are chosen are more than proud of their job.
The library and its helpers do their part in the war
effort and it's an excellent job.
The library is under the guiding hand of Miss
Mielke and Miss Stilp, who are always there to help
a student with some reference guestion that has
become too knotty for him.
There are many special fields in which the
library is proud to have the most detailed source
material. Every student is kept informed on the
daily progress of the war by means of a map which
is changed every day. The most outstanding of the
many services rendered the students is the exten-
sive section on vocational guidance. There are
books and pamphlets on almost every known voca-
tion, and more addresses may be acguired in order
to get material direct from the source. The influ-
ence of this excellent library is felt on every depart-
ment in the school as all the librarians strive to fill
every intellectual need of the student body.

In Many Tongues
The rooms at the end of the first
floor house the language department.
Latin, German, and Spanish are taught
by Misses Elsie Kopplin, LaVerne Knie-
busch, Lila Locksmith, and Sophia
Each classroom has an atmosphere
of its own. Books in the particular lan-
guage taught in the room are kept for
use by the language students and teach-
ers. The works of Virgil, and Horace
are read by the advanced Latin classes,
Goethe is read by the second year Ger-
man students, and better Spanish liter-
ature is read by the Spanish students.
Music plays an important part in
the development of a good accent and
knowledge of constructions. Songs are
learned and sung by the students in
their respective tongues. At Christmas
time each class has a chance to sing
carols in the halls for the student body.
This year the Latin classes sang on the
third floorj the Spanish students sang
on the second floor, and the German club sang on
the first floor.
Spanish has been given a new stimulus this year
by the emphasis that has been placed upon our
South American neighbors. The other languages
have not lacked in their appeal, however, as stu-
dents who are preparing for a scientific or legal
career have discovered that the more they know
about foreign languages, the better it will be for them.

lems of other countries.
Each language group has its social activities ex-
pressed by a club. Many speakers are brought in to
increase the students' knowledge of the countries
and their customs. Many meetings are also held for
pure relaxation and to provide a place for the stu-
dents to know each other better. Through the medi-
um of a foreign language, many students have
known their fellow students better.

The Latin club is under the supervision of
Miss Kopplin and Miss Kniebusch. The member-
ship is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors
who are taking Latin, and who are elected to
the club. The club is conducted by two students
called co-consuls. This custom follows the pat-
tern of Roman government. The co-consuls this
year were lim Groh and Virginia Kamps. The
treasurer was loan Riedlg the secretary, Ger-
trude McMahong program chairman or praestor,

Qnce a year, the club invites Latin students
from the junior high schools to visit their meets
ings. This year the students were their guests on
April l. These students were selected by the
Latin teachers of the respective Tunior High
Schools, according to their marks. A program
was given tor them in which the members of
the club participated.
The purposes of the Latin Club are to enable
the students and teachers to come in Contact
with one another outside ot the classroom and to
bring out the cultural side ot the Latin language.

service reached out and grabbed one of the club's boys attracted Dan Garvey, the president of the
club. ln an effort to keep the club roster filled
some of the reguirements have been relaxed.
First year German students are now eligible to
enter the club immediately.
Some of the highlights of this year's activi-
ties were the annual Christmas party, the sing-
ing of Christmas carols in the halls, and an ocs
casional party. The club held regular meetings
at the homes of its members. The programs con-
sisted of topics given by students, student plays,
and refreshments. The building of a strong Ger-
man vocabulary was encouraged in anticipation
of future foreign service. To stimulate this prac-
tice the conversations at meetings were carried
on in German.
To stress the value of original German cul-
ture the lives of Germany's great masters were
reviewed on several occasions. These talks cov-
ered the fields of music, literature, and art.

"We must win the war!" This is the new theme
under which the social science and history depart-
ments of Appleton l-ligh School have carried out a
different program this year. The war has added
many new problems to our daily lives and has made
other problems less important. For this reason a
shift in emphasis has taken place in these courses.
The general aim is to better prepare the student to
meet, understand, and solve the many perplexing
problems of our modern world. A great deal of
stress is placed on our country's major war aims
and war issues, and an attempt is made to prepare
the students for their places in the war effort.
The Colonial Period has been omitted from the
study of American history. This step was taken so
that a greater emphasis might be placed on modern
problems. The world history course has been changed
to a study of modern history. These courses now
feature our neighbors in Canada and South and
Central America. More time also was spent study-
ing the customs and ideas of Africa, the Near East,
the Far East, and our island possessions.
The idea of studying history for history's sake
has been discarded. lnstead, more time was spent
in an explanation of the fundamental reasons for
our being in the war and the issues for which we
are fighting. The boys and girls were naturally
interested in the Marines, Navy, Waacs, Air Corps,
Waves, and the Army. Therefore, various branches
of the armed forces were carefully studied. This
included the process of induction into the differ-
ent services and application for officer training
The social science and history departments are
the only classes in school that are really next to
the war and follow it day by day. Every day the
progress of the war is studied and all of the battle
fronts are thoroughly discussed. lt is here that the
student actually begins to comprehend the war and
all of its aspects.
The relationship of all countries to the war is
carefully studied so that a better understanding of
the action is derived. Because we are living in a
time when history which will probably never be
surpassed for its magnitude and effect on the shaping
of the world is being written, much time is being
devoted to current problems.
Thus you see why this course is actually nearer
the world conflict than any other here at high school.

The advances and retreats of the enemy and our
own forces are studied carefullyg and oftentimes
through the lessons which were learned in the
past, students are able to predict with a certain
degree of accuracy just what to expect next.
Added time was also spent on studying the
global aspects of this war. lt becomes more and
more evident that this is a global or total war,
and because of this the implications and prob-
lems arising from such a war were learned. A
thorough understanding of our war govern-
ment was gained from an intensive survey of
the transition from a peace to a wartime gov-
ernment and the responsibilities and privileges
associated with a democracy.
Many students aided in the government
rationing program. They were able to do this
intelligently because of a complete explanation
of war-time economics which included ration-
ing and conservation. Instruction was also car-
ried on in the field of war-time economics in con-
nection with the financing of the war and the prob-
lems of inflation dealing with price and wage control.
To get a clear, concise picture of the present
war and its problems, material was gathered on the
background of the war. The aims of the warring
nations were studied so that the student might
understand why we are fighting to preserve our
way of life. Cne of the most important war aims of
the democratic nations is the formulation of a just
and lasting peace to insure a peaceful post-war era.
There were many problems which entered into the
study of the post-war period. The debate between
isolationism and internationalism was discussed,
and the new responsibilities which the United
States must accept with confidence were debated.
A great deal of study was also spent on geography
with emphasis on distances and the location of
Preparing a round table discussion for their history class are Dorothy
Simon, Winifred Wood, Betty Rossmeissl, and Bernice lens.
Students were encouraged to listen to educa-
tional programs over the radio and to read maga-
zine articles and books to further inform them-
selves on the problems that they will face. These
outside activities helped widen the students' views
and will help them in later life.
Many round tables and panel discussions were
planned and presented by both faculty and students.
Students were encouraged to think for themselves
and to form their own opinions.
The social science instructors assisted in the
rationing program and formulated a course of study
for the l'Sale of Stamps and Bonds" which was to
be used in all high schools in Outagamie County.
lt can be readily seen that the social science and
history instructors are doing their utmost to teach
the students of today to be good citizens of to-

This year the annual Bolton-Roth Extempore
Speaking Recital closed the l943 forensic season,
and five students under the supervision of Mr. E.
lohn Goodrich took part. Bill Younger, whose
speech was judged best, opened the program with
a discussion of the guestion, HAre We Going All
Cut for Victory on the Home Front?" lames lunge
then discussed the role of Russia in the war. Karl
Hoelzel enumerated the evils of inflation. ln the
fourth speech Charles Wallens described Turkey's
relation to the war. The program was concluded by
Maury Rosenblatt's informative talk on the status of
All the talks were on topics which were of cur-
rent interest. Each student studied as much as he
could about current events, and then an hour before
the recital each student drew a topic. With this
small amount of formal preparation he gave his talk.
The theme of this year's annual lnleiss oratorical
recital was current American problems. Ben Rosen-
thal's oration was entitled "The United States and
the Post-War World." Religion, education, and a
period of Hcooling-off" were stressed by Karl
Hoelzel in his oration, Harriet Krug presented
"Qualities of Leadership." 'llapanese Plans for
World Conquest" by Charles Wallens told of the
difficulty in defeating lapan. The Negro's part in
the war effort was revealed in lune Gerhartz's
winning oration, 'lThe Negro and the War." The
contestants were coached by Mr. Kenneth Edge.
lune Gerhartz represented Appleton High School
at the district meet and she took a second place. All

The debate question for the current year was
"Resolved: That a world government should be
established." A particularly timely topic, it en-
grossed the whole squad in many hours of study
As in many other departments, the present con-
flict limited the traveling of the squadg however the
lack of outside meets did not discourage the de-
baters in the least. Under the supervision of a new
faculty adviser, Mr. E. lohn Goodrich, a program
both varied and vital was planned and carried out.
Books and pamphlets on the subject were read and
discussedg and the entire debate squad, which was
composed of about twelve students, was divided
into negative and affirmative teams. These teams
held intravsquad debates, many of which were as
heated as those of former years when the team met
All the inter-scholastic dual meets were can-
celled, but the members of the team supplemented
their experience by appearing before various civic
organizations. They not only presented lucid, fluent
debating style but also indicated a wide knowledge
of the facts behind-the question.
The members of the squad should feel that what
has been gained in understanding of the community
in which they live more than makes up for the lack
of competition. Although the team cannot measure
the season in terms of inter-scholastic gains and
losses, the debate squad performed a signal service
to the school by bringing to the attention of the
various civic organizations the fact that high school
students are excellently informed on world affairs.
All these results were brought about by the per-
severance and cooperation of every member of the
team and its adviser.
While many people think of debaters as being
people who enjoy a good argument, they forget
the many long hours of study and preparation that
must be undertaken in order to prepare a good
speech. The debater must be prepared not only
with his own argument, but he must also be pre-
pared to answer and refute that of his opponent.
The students who debate frequently discover that
there are two sides to every argument, and they be-
come much more tolerant of other's views. Toler-
ance and understanding are attributes which will
make a much better world.

This year marks the first anniversary of Appleton's
newest safety movement, the Safety Patrol, which
has been organized in all of the schools by the city
police department. It has already begun to prove
its value to pedestrians and drivers alike.
The Appleton High School division of this organi-
zation is composed of members of last year who
were originally chosen by faculty members or by
student vote. New sophomores who were members
of the patrol previously were admitted to the high
school branch, and those who held commissions
had a chance to become officers here. Elected by
the patrol members at an early meeting, six officers
were chosen. The officers for this present year were
Lee Seims, and Dorothy Rohloff, captainsg and
Agatha Qskey, Bill Raney, Virginia Rhodes, and
Eugene Kohl were lieutenants. Business meetings
were held and problems and solutions for the patrol
were discussed by Patrolman Frank Frye and Ser-
geant Harry Salzman.
A glance at the social program of the patrol
proves that membership is not all work. During the
past year safety-minded organizations and mer-
chants have contributed for various parties and
other gatherings which the patrol attended in a
body. The Lions Club donated the snappy caps and
belts worn by all patrolmen, and a bean feed was
given them by the Kiwanis. A party was held at
Christmas time, and members have been admitted
to several free movies. Although the patrol is only
in its second year, under the supervision of Mr.
Kenneth Sager, faculty adviser, it has done much
to promote safety and to save lives. Through all
kinds of unfavorable weather the Safety Patrol is
always on the job.
Safety Patrol members of this year had many
problems that would not have beset them in ordinary
years. 'The weather was unusually unfavorable this
year, and they had to stand many long minutes on
the corner in rain and cold. They did not neglect
their posts, however, and they learned that one of
the first rules of good character and strong will is
to be faithful to their duty.
This close experience with the attention that is
being paid to safety all over the nation at the pres-
ent time helped the students to realize the frightful
toll that is being taken in lives and happiness every
year merely through carelessness and thoughtless
ness. Their jobs were to combat these faults through
education and practice. Their example has been
emulated by the other students and should provide
a safer and a saner society. The practice of care
and thought while crossing streets and riding
bicycles may seem like a small thing, but it is from
habits such as these that safety and care in all
matters will develop. Not only will fewer lives be
lost but better lives will be lived.
OE all the subjects taught at our high school,
the ones most affected by this war are the mathe-
matics and sciences. These subjects walk hand in
hand along the highway of civilization, one always
dependent on the other. The math taught in this
school is first and second year algebra courses,
plane and solid geometry, trigonometry, and a touch
of the higher maths as taught in the fourth year
classes. Miss Graef, Miss Duling, and Miss Carter
are those who ably teach these subjects. Biology,
chemistry and physics are those sciences offered to
the pupils. Biology, of course, is required of all
sophomores. The others are optional. These classes
are taught by Mr. Cfygi, Miss Ritchie, Mrs. Crow,
Mr. Ketchum, and Mr. Cole.
The two new types of mathematics introduced
this year are pre-induction math and pre-flight math
all under Miss Carter. The objective of these courses
this year and in the years to come is to practicalize
themselves, to omit the 'ttrimmings" and to con-
centrate on the type of math and science used to
better ourselves in the war. Many moving pictures
are used to illustrate plant and animal life, the
movement of the heavenly bodies as they travel in
their orbits across the sky, chemical and physical
reactions. These and many others are just a part of
the daily experiences of the math and science stu-
dents. The idea of being able to learn things be-
sides what is taught in the text book is a Welcome
one to students.
Chemistry at Appleton High has gravitated from
the old two hour lab three days a week course to a
daily hour course, condensed and practical. The
student is given the theory, principles, and ground
work of training in the subject.
The science and math departments have also
given heed to the requirements of the officer can-
didate schools, and have added to their courses the

course required and helpful to the examinations
with the optimistic outlook that many of the alumni
and students will prove themselves leaders in their
service to the armed forces of the United States.
Moving right along with the sciences is the
mathematics course, Emphasis this year was placed
on the type of practical math used by our armed
forces in the fight to better the world. Mathematics
is used to determine angles for firing cannon, anti-
aircraft guns, mortars, machine guns, and many
others. lt is used in navigation and astrogation, in
determining troop movements, in dropping bombs,
in following airplane beams, in the shooting of
torpedoes, in determining longitude and latitude,
and in countless other fields. lt has been often and
well said that this is a mathematician's war. The
two sciences combine to predict weather and other
necessary war sciences including the large field of

Une ot the new war courses introduced this
year in the high school was aviation science. lt is
sometimes called pre-induction aviation. The course
was handled by all tour consecutive teachers. The
tirst three weeks ot this course were handled by Mr.
Helble and Mr. Witte who taught a little ot the his-
torical background ot aviation and the social
aspects ot the new global geography. They demon-
strated how aviation has attected the world in
Then Miss Carter took over tor about eight
weeks. She poured torth into the minds ot the stu-
dents a mathematics review, mathematics ot naviga-
tion, and trigonometry ot aeronautics. Mr. Cameron
took care ot the next tive weeks and demonstrated

the construction and operation principles ot air-
plane motors and ignition systems.
Last, but tar from least, Mr. Ketchum had the
class tor the remainder ot the year. He split his
course up into tour ditterent parts. The tirst was
aero-dynamics or a study ot the physical parts ot
the airplane. The second was the study ot the
principal instruments used in tlying, and thirdly the
study ot the practical uses ot meteorology. The last
ot the course was the tinal completion in the study
ot navigation, or aerial navigation.
Through the integration ot science, mathematics,
geography, and history, the 'aviation science stu-
dents were able to grasp tully the scope ot avia-
tion. To them tlying became not a mere thrill to
be enjoyed as a novelty, but they discovered
that the commercial and social aspects ot avia-
tion were unfathomable. By means ot an over-
view ot the whole subject, these students will
be able to make not only intelligent pilots, navi-
gators, and crew members, but even it they
never enter the tield ot aviation commercially,
they have attained an understanding ot the prob-
lems tacing a world in which distances have
been so greatly curtailed.
Students who finished the course felt that
they had had a thorough review ot all the funda-
mentals in mathematics, science, and geog-
raphy as well as learning a staggering amount
ot new material. This course has been one ot
the most direct contributions made by students
toward not only the war ettort but also the peace
"Geared for war" best describes the com-
mercial department this year. lt was literally
swamped with war workg for example, in one
busy week two stencils and three ditto copies,
making a total of 2500 copies of cover sheets
for individual folders, were typed for the local
draft board by the office practice class. Copies
of the requirements for the naval aviation can-
didates and of the requirements to be met by
applicants for enlistment as officer candidates
in the United States Marine Corps were made.
The juniors did their share in the typing of the
war records for each Appleton High School
graduate who is in service. Some of the senior
girls helped with the gas and oil rationing.
Their work was alphabetizing and filing cards
and figuring oil consumption. lt is evident that
all year the typewriters were pounded furiously
on behalf of the draft board, ration board, state
guard, and other war organizations.
Not only was actual war work done, but the com-
mercial students were also prepared to take their
places in a country geared for war. Some students
were placed directly in war work because of their
excellent training. The military filing system, ab-
breviations, and letter forms were studied by the
boys. New war words were added to their vocabu-
laries, and aero-nautical terms were studied by all
the commercial students. Because of the shortage of
typewriters, speed in writing was especially em-
phasized. Special attention was also paid to a
thorough knowledge of the numbers on the type-
writer. ln short, the whole emphasis in typewriting
was put on a more intensive program than formerly.
Rough drafts and tabulation were other government
musts. Since all government typing is done with
six copies, accuracy is essential.

an individual help the war effort? These and many
other problems related to the war were discussed
in both the business principles and every day busi-
ness classes. These classes discuss the problems
that the student will meet in daily life and prepare
him to meet all these situations adequately. Many
social problems and financial problems are dis-
cussed, and many interesting projects are com-
pleted in these classes. Pupils discuss taxes, interest,
banking, and many other financial problems that
they will have to face every day. Many students
who are not commercial majors take these courses
just for the practical experience it affords them.

Another contribution to the war ettort by the
commercial department was the selling ot ten type-
writers to the government. Because ot the acute

accepted them, and probably more will be taken in
the future. The commercial department has done
more than its share to turther the war etiort in many
Constantly striving to maintain the high place

The training is divided in two sections, a general
training group tor business theory, and a vocational
division tor more technical and advanced study.

on hand to carry on most ot its business courses
during the coming year.

The purpose of the Commercial club is to promote
a better knowledge and understanding of the business
world. Educational talks are given at the social and
business meetings by local business men and women.
The social meetings are held once a month at the homes
of the members.
Among its activities this year, the club included the

This year more than any other year we must
realize how important our home economics course
is. The course has never been as fully extended as
it is at the present time. This of course, is largely
due to our part in the war.
The faculty advisers have done very wonderful
work in organizing their classes and planning the
units co-ordinately. They have had to make many
changes of plans for this year's work and make
many additions to their regular units of work.
Since food rationing has begun, people have
been paying more attention to the food they were
eating. The fact that foods of the same abundance
have not given us the same benefits is now being
fully realized. When mothers go marketing now,
they buy the foods which provide the proper nutri-
tion for their children. A course is very advantage-
ous in this manner. The pupils not only learn what
foods to buy but also how to prepare them to the
The home arts students have had quite a bit of
practice in re-styling old clothes, such as making
skirts out of old clothes and making suits for them-
selves out of men's suits. Along with helping the war
effort and doing their bit as good citizens, they also
helped themselves. This was good practice for them,
and the experience of sewing for someone else was
very helpful. When clothes rationing starts, they
will be very fortunate in being able to do this.
This year the home arts classes have been doing
Red Cross sewing. They have made numerous
afghans and some dresses. It is a big help to know
that they are serving the boys who do the actual

them. They really will have a future ahead of them
in their army life. If no other job is suited to them,
they can always be a cook. After all where would
the army be without their cooks?
Now that the girls are entering the service as
WAACS, WAVES, or the SPARS, they, too, are in
practically the same position as the boys. They fill
the shoes of men to relieve them for active duty.
All of the girls in service have their own particular
job to be done so the girls taking the home arts
course have their jobs cut out for them.
The teachers have contributed so much to make
this year more advantageous for all of their stu-
dents and we all hope that they will continue their
good work in the years to come at Appleton High

The sewing classes are divided into two parts,
dressmaking and general clothing. General cloth-
ing is a semester course offered especially for
sophomores. The basis of their first unit of work is
good grooming. The girls learn the fundamentals of
choosing and buying of cosmetics. They are also
taught the care of clothing, storing of woolens,
pressing and mending.
Pattern study is an important factor in the sew-
ing course. They have to study pattern markings
and pattern layouts.
The girls spend about two and one half weeks
on Red Cross work such as afghans and garments.
The dressmaking course is the advanced sew-
ing course. This is studied for a year. The girls
analyze the figure quite thoroughly. The correct
selection of clothing for all figures is quite an im-
portant factor. They study the color, line, and tex-
tures of all the materials.
As tailored dresses are the rage, the girls are
spending quite some time on this subject. They
learn how to make a suit for themselves from a
man's suit, a jacket from a coat, and to restyle
dresses. This is probably one of the most useful
studies for girls to take now when it will mean so
much to be able to make their own things. Con-
servation and carefulness are two of the ends of
today's clothing classes. The girls not only learn
the principles of sewing, they also learn to apply
them in the most practical way.

The Calorie Kids
This year, in particular, the home economics
teachers have been stressing the tact that the cooke
ing classes should use the pressure cooker in home
canning. The reason tor this is that this cooker in-
sures satety for the non-acid vegetables.
All ot the classes are stressing nutritions so that
we will all have more physically tit bodies, and we
will learn what the body needs and what foods will
supply them. Most ot us have the idea that as long
as we get the right amount ot calories a day we
should be perfect specimens! This is where we are
all wrong. We don't only have to have the right
amount, but they should also come from the right
groups ot foods.
Along with their tood planning, the classes have
had quite a bit of training in the care ot kitchen
equipment. This is very important, especially now
that these materials are very hard to get.
ln the tall the classes do their canning. These
supplies provide the classes for the remainder ot
the year and usually last until the tall ot the next
In the beginning ot the year the classes usually
study about calories. When they are a little more
advanced, they begin their cooking.
Planning and serving the meal is part of the
school year's work. The classes usually divide in
groups ot two or three when they prepare their
meals. Another important item is the cleaning up
after they have served their meal. After all, it's not
all play and no work.
Some time or other this year all ot us have prob-
ably noticed the window display up on third tloor.
This is prepared by ditterent groups either by vol-
unteering or appointing.
This year there has been a slight decrease in
the attendance of the cooking classes. This is due
largely to the induction ot the boys into the army.
War! l I
As this luckless word was being whispered
on Dame Fate's wagging tongue, A.l'l.S.'s in-
dustrial arts department was geared to the pace
which war's enmeshments produced in the in-
dustrial training shops all over the country.
Every course taught in the industrial arts
department of Appleton High School definitely
contributed to the war effort. Boys are given a
chance, while at high school, to receive pre-
liminary trade training. This training gives a
background for further instructions on machine
operations in industries.
In the machine shop they are taught how to
operate machines such as lathes, drill presses,
spot welders, shapers, and other machines used
in war and industrial plants. ln the auto mechan-
ics course boys fit themselves to take the places
of many young men already in the service. This
training is a step toward the training ground
crews at airbases receive. The mechanical drawing
classes develop young men to take important posi-
tions or aid in their further training as draftsmen.
The need of skilled draftsmen in war industries is
great. Airplane factories, tank factories, armament
plants, in fact almost every industry engaged in the
war effort has a need and a definite place for men
trained in this skill.
The Federal government has printed regular
courses which high school industrial arts depart-
ments are reguested to follow. Appleton l-ligh School
is proud to say that our department had been fol-
lowing an identical course long before the war
broke out. This is proven by the splendid records
that our graduates are making in the army as evi-
denced by the rapid promotions they receive. A
canvass of Appleton industries would show that
graduates of the industrial arts department progress

much more rapidly because of their fine preliminary
Even war work is done in the industrial arts
department. The printing department has printed
leaflets concerning salvage drives and rationings
as well as much explanatory material for the student
body. The woodworking classes are building model
planes for the army. These model planes are used
to teach soldiers to identify the different types of
planes both allied and enemy. These classes have
made many stretchers for the Red Cross. The drawing
classes design and build model planes also. Boys in
the machine shop make templates and tags for the
Then too we can not overlook the original pur-
pose of the industrial arts department. This course
was originally founded to give the mechanically
inclined student something with which he could

develop this ability. It has been instrumental in
turning out boys who have walked right into civilian
jobs upon graduation from the shop.
The training thus afforded can prepare a boy
for duties in almost any mechanical field he desires.
The high school offers the best equipment and in-
structors available and every precaution is taken to
insure the boys safety.
This department had not been as popular be-
fore the outbreak of the war, but now the value of
its instruction is recognized by many more students.
Not only the boys have shown more interest, but
many girls have become interested. ln the near
future it may not be uncommon to see girls among
the students in the industrial arts department.
Few students realize the importance and obvious
need of an industrial arts department in their school.
ln the past only the students taking one of these
courses fully realized what value a course such as
this would be and of what help it was in the future
vocational plans of these young men.
Although the war has placed a new emphasis
on the training gained through the industrial arts
program, the war is directly responsible for any
slackening of the program. Due to the shortage of
materials the scope of the industrial training has
been definitely limited. There has been difficulty in
securing many of the supplies which this course
demands chiefly because these same supplies are
needed by the armed forces.
l-lowever adjustments have been made and the
maximum of efficiency has been obtained. Even
though the war has made the work more difficult,
it has not impaired the guality of the students work
which this department is turning out.
Therefore, it is seen that the Appleton l-ligh
School industrial arts department has continually
played a large role in the war effort.

In the Air
The A,l'l.S. Model Airplane club was organized
two years ago for airplane enthusiasts and has
progressed steadily until now it has a roster ot
The officers of the club include Wayne Reichel,
president, Earl Ehlke, secretaryg lack Tock, treas-
urer, and Dick Bock, publicity agent.
The members engage in building all types of
models, including the larger and more detailed gas
models. ln the past they have given numerous
demonstrations to various civic groups and in the
course of the year have had their handiwork ex-
hibited in the lobby under the auspices of the
These activities plus their regular meetings have
in the past kept the members busy, but what with
the present conflict raging, they too are now play-
ing a part in the war effort. This brings to mind the-
fact that as the construction of these miniature air-
craft is a hobby so is it a science, for the government
has called on the club to help supply the armed
forces with the various types and models of the
airplanes and fighter craft of all the nations engaged
in this war. They will be used to familiarize service-
men with various planes of the Allied and Axis
forces. This knowledge will be of considerable help-
to them in combat operations and in civilian air-
The club has grown in importance until this
year it has become a first-rate war project.

The fine arts department of Appleton High School
contributed materially toward the war effort. lt wasn't
any one section alone that stood out, for it was all
three music, dramatic, and art together that furthered
our great war effort.
The art department has done some splendid work
this year which will stand out for many years. Their
greatest contribution was the fine posters which they
made promoting the sales of war stamps and bonds.
Several boys painted excellent airplane pictures to
be used in spotting, and whenever they were called
upon to further a patriotic project the art department
rose nobly. Art exhibits on the third floor corridor
attracted many visitors and excited favorable com-

ments on the quality of the work being produced in
the high school.
lf the band, orchestra, or chorus weren't playing
a concert for some bond drive, they were hard at
practice for their next appearances. More benefit
concerts than usual were given this year both in and
outside of school. Students in the musical organi-
zations put in long hours in practice and in concert.
They were always Willing to provide their soul-
stirring music for many occasions. Besides their
regular formal concerts, they played at the various
schools and civic organizations. This year the dra-
matic department really showed what they could do.
Putting on patriotic plays was their specialty. Through
the efforts of the instructors, student coaches, assist-
ants, back-stage crews, and actors, the sale of war
bonds was boosted, and they broadcast a war bond
selling play over the local radio station to reach a
larger percentage of the population.
All three sections of this department cooperated
to the fullest extent and by dint of their hard work,
made the whole season an outstanding success.
Each faculty member discovered that his work
had been increased a hundred-fold, but with the
whole-hearted cooperation of the students and the
worthiness of the cause for which they all worked,
the load did not seem so heavy. Along with increased
volume of productions, the fine arts department
showed a noteworthy high quality seldom found in
student productions. The music was sweeter, the
pictures were better, and the dramas were executed
with even more finesse than usual.

At the beginning ot the schcol year, it was
ieared that Curtain Call's acting plans would be
curtailed because ot the war, but after the tirst per-
formance these tears were seen to have no basis.
Appleton high schcol's dramatic club continued
its service as an outlet tor the acting ability ot the
students, and although there Was no junior class
play, several other productions took its place.
The three traditional programs, sophomore vod-
vil, the senior class play, and senior vodvil were
the highlights oi Curtain Call's most active year
since its founding. At the monthly meetings on
Thursday night, Miss Ruth McKennan, the club's
adviser, organized programs and talks designed to
teach and help the young thespians in their attempts
on the stage.
While remaining in silent anonymity, two-thirds
of Curtain Call toiled behind the scenes acting as
the stage and lighting crew and the make-up stati.

Breaking The Ice
The year started off with a loud bang
when the sophomores showed the upperclass-
men just what they could do, and the result
was a great day for the l'redemption" of the
sophomores. The entire audience agreed that
this year's talent show equalled if not ex-
celled the shows of previous years.
Bob Nolan as master of ceremonies pro-
vided ample laughs for the receptive student
body. The show started with beautifully cos-
tumed girls enhancing the scene while Mari-
lyn lens sang "My Hero" accompanied by
Beverly Belling. The girls who provided the
dancing foreground were loyel Defferding,
leanne Fountain, Alice Ann l-lammer, Don-
na Salter, and lune Robertson.
To satisfy the audiences desire for more
music, loan Heller and Lois Mielke played
the violin and piano. loan presented the play-
ful "Dance of the Elves" while Lois played
Chopin's difficult "Polonaise." A change of
atmosphere was supplied by Delores lenne-
man when she gave the humorous reading,
"My Little lacob Strauss," in German dialect.
"Memories" was sung by Shirley Riette while
Bill Raney and Mary Mueller ably enacted a
The popular "Manhattan Serenade" was
the piano solo of Mary Jeanne Voss. Mary
then accompanied lean Flanigan who did a
tap dance. To lend variety to the show, Shireen
Reiss presented an acrobatic stunt which
would have caught any talent scout's eye.
No show would be complete without go-
ing back to the days when "Daisy" and "By
the Light of the Silvery Moon" were popular
with Mother and Dad. leanne Ballard, Carol
Busch, Harold Chapnitsky, Eugene Kohl,
Lois Nelson, Calvin Stammer, Stanley Timm,
and loan Van Rooy sang these old songs. The
scene then shifted to South America where
lanette lensen and Doris Rehlender diss
played colorful costumes and dancing abilif
ty. loyce lacobson, with the dialect of a
Brooklyn clerk, made the audience roar with
laughter at her reading. Annette Kraus and
Robert Robinson delighted the audience with
an Apache dance that was little short of pro-
fessional. Clad in straw hats and overalls,
Virginia and Viola Witthuhn took us out West
, singing "You Are My Sunshine."
Patriotism was also a main theme of the
program as Tom Van l-lousen sang "This ls
Worth Fighting For" and Richard Verhoeven
twirled a baton while tap dancing. For the
finale, the entire cast formed a V for victory
on the stage.
The cast was ably coached by juniors and
seniors, and directed by Miss Ruth McKen-
nan and Mr. Kenneth Kuemmerlein.

ment of lively patter . . . Suave M.C. Bob Nolan tied the show to-

April, adolescence, and young love were the
three main topics of discussion for a consecutive
number of weeks in March and early April, for the
seniors were having the time of their young lives.
The reason for this deviation from the normal pro-
cedure of things was very clear: the senior class
was going to present its annual playl Not satisfied
with keeping peace with the weatherrnan, the dram-
atists transformed the stage of our spacious audi'
toriurn to a living-room in sunny California and
presented a delightful comedy entitled 'Young
April" on April the eighth in keeping with the
month, of course.
"Young April," which was written by Aurania
and William Spence Pouneral, was a sparkling and
refreshing comedy traditionally revolving about the
affairs of an average American family. The play
concerned the experiences of Professor and Mrs.
Mclntyre and their two children, Terry and George.
First of all, for a glimpse of the cast of characters.
Professor Mclntyre, an aristocratic looking man
with a very dry and refreshing humor, was aptly
portrayed by big fames Groh. His wife, Mrs. Mc-
lntyre, an attractive, intelligent, and deeply maternal
woman, was convincingly characterized by Tune
Gerhartz. Terry Mclntyre, alias Gloria Enger, was
seventeen and pretty as a picture. She was a highly
excitable and vivacious girl ignorant of human
nature, had much to learn, and found the learning
very difficult. Her brother George, portrayed by
none other than Ken Davis, was a goodflooking boy
who had just finished his freshman year in college.
George was more of an idealist than many boys of
his age, and found it difficult to accept reality.
Terry, as one might well imagine, has had her
beaux in rapid succession, almost marrying the
"wrong one," until the kindly intervention of her
Mother and Dad, together with the girl's own
growing understanding, steered her over to the
George was in love with his conception of "the
sweetest girl in the world," Diane Gilmore. Diane, a
very popular and charming girl and also very inde-
pendent of spirit, was convincingly played by Elaine
Hamilton. George discovered that she was only
human after all, and for a time he was very dis-
illusioned. However, he finally realized that he
loved her anyhow, just as she was. And finally, we
saw George growing up and adjusting himself to
some of the realities of life.
So much for the character developments. Under
the skillful and tireless guidance of Miss Ruth
MCKennan, "Young April" became a polished and
excellent play. However, into every director's life
some rain must fall, and fall it did during the weeks
of practicing. Measles attacked at least three or
four of the cast, but all recovered in time to make
Miss Mcliennan breathe a little more easy. The final
rehearsal went off as usual and even the night of
the command performance was without incident.
Some of the other personages that contributed
to the success of the play were a trio of three of
Terry's beauxp namely, Bert Parsons or lim Lueck,
Stewart Miller, played by lim Hammer, and Brian
Stanley fthe lucky man who finally got Terryb
played by lack Adrian. Laura Belle DeLong gave an
outstanding characterization of selfish, gushy Mrs.
Miller who wanted a daughter-in-law who would
be willing to share her son with her.
The backstage crew worked many long hours
to make a setting which would be realistic to the
last detail and artistic. The crew was under the
direction of Miss Frances Millis, a commercial
instructor. Much credit must be given to the light-
ing crew. They worked and experimented with
many new and unusual lighting effects to give each
scene the utmost in shading and atmosphere. Mr.
Kenneth Kuemmerlein directed the lighting crew.
George has much trouble to win the interest of the lovely Diane, but she finally sees him in his true light . . . Mrs. Mclntyre has a
hard time to prevent the professor from being impetuous and spoiling the children's plans . . . lust when George is feeling the loneli-
est, a group of his friends surprise him on his birthday . . . George makes quite a sum of money by buying a new lawnmower for
the family and then charging them rent for its use.
The lovers, lack Hill and Marilyn lens, are contemplating a new world of peace and freedom as they gaze over their beloved Russian
countryside . . , The Nazi officers, Nick Schaefer, Charles Wallens, Dave Bailin, and lack Adrian listen intently as Karl Hoelzel out-
lines the campaign.
Sunset At Dawn
lt is not often that an original play written and
directed by our own students is presented before
the student bodyg but SUNSET AT DAWN proved
that Pat Smith, the author, and Gloria McGregor,
the director, can make an audience laugh one
moment and cry the next.
As the great curtains of the auditorium parted,
the audience was confronted with a scene of the
peaceful countryside of Russia just before the pre-
sent war. This peace lasted only a short while, for
soon a Russian home was being shaken by the
blasts of German bombs, and the two young lovers,
Peter, played by lack Hill, and Alla, played by
Marilyn lens were called to help in the defense of
their country. Alla became a spy, but her mother,
Madame Balsis, played by Virginia Hedberg, and
her grandmother, played by Laura Belle DeLong
believed that she was a traitor to her countryg so
they asked her to leave home. Even Peter believed
that she was a traitor until Alla freed him from a
Nazi prison camp.
The climax of the play was reached when Peter
aided Alla in blowing up a dam and destroying
Nazi soldiers with it. The two lovers lost their lives,
but they were united after death as they stood on a
hill overlooking their- beloved Russia. They found
consolation in the fact that they had brought their
country nearer to the dawn of the future when all
nations will be free to love and laugh again with-
The cast also included Alla's brother loseph and
sister Sonja, portrayed by Bette Starks and layne
Van Rooy respectively, and lim Kluge as Akim
Tzcaronitch. The soldiers in the German army were
Karl l-loelzel as the colonel, Dave Bailin as Lieuten-
ant Schling, Nick Schaefer as Lieutenant Probst,
lack Adrian as Sergeant Krug, and Charles Wallens
as Captain Von Blen. The epilogue written by Lois
lohnston urged the sale of war bonds and stamps
and was read by Gloria McGregor. The stage crew
aptly showed its handiwork in the excellence of
scenery, lighting, and make-up.
ln presenting this play the members of Curtain
Call wished to encourage the students of Appleton
High School to write plays or short skits of their
own. They also wanted to acknowledge the fact that
a play can be very dramatic and serious and yet be
appreciated by a high school aduience. Under the
capable eye of Miss Ruth McKennan, head of the
speech department, the play, SUNSET AT DAWN,
was a highlight in the dramatic season of the school.
Naomi, the shepherds daughter played by Muriel Clapp, is released from the court of King Herod and she is free to return to her,
former life . . . King's Chamberlain Harold Hoile tells the shepherds family ofthe Star in he East . . . King Herod, played by Charles
Wallens, is surrounded by his court,
The Light Of The Star
"Ye old Appleton High School dramatic club"
really outdid itself in the presentation of the annual
Christmas play, llThe Light of the Star." Not only
was the cast superbly directed by Miss McKennan,
but the lighting and scenery under Mr. Kuemmer-
lein's supervision greatly inspired the audience.
Taking us back to the times of Christ, we entered
a lowly shepherds home in Scene l where Naomi,
her sister Ruth, and the mother sensed the divine
meaning of the brightness of the night. These parts
were played by Muriel Clapp, Betty Hollenback,
and Tune Gerhartz respectively. The blind child,
Miriam, could not see the starg but the family hoped
that someday her dream would be realized. Lois
Weinfurter enacted the role of Miriam. Soon the
father, Reuben, played by Iohn Davis, and his son,
Toel, played by Paul Verhoeven, returned from their
workg and brought the news that King Herod was
seeking beautiful dancers to entertain him at court.
The scene changed to that of King Herod's
palace where we saw Naomi as one of the dancers.
The others in the performance were played by Toy
Ann Babino, Marianne McCabe, Betty Starks, lean
Trautman, and Tayne Van Rooy. The ladies in wait-
ing enviously watched the beautiful Naomi and
they were as follows: Zares, Onnolee Laabsg Rhedeo,
Toan Gageg Deborah, Toanne Frawleyp Rhoda, Elaine
Smyrnoesg and Theodora, Lola Mae Boldt.
Naomi disliked the life at court and pleaded with
Michael, a seer, played by Charles Marston to help
herg and he promised to do so. King Herod, enacted
by Charles Wallens, was touched by her pleadings
and allows Naomi to leave with Michael. Salomi,
Tean Avery, was Herod's sister, and Dosetheus,
Harold Hoile, was the king's chamberlain.
When Herod heard of the Christ child through
the VJise Men, who were on their way to Bethlehem,
he vowed to kill the new-born babe. The Wise Men
were as follows: Balthaser, Bill Hatchp Melchior,
Ben Rosenthalp and Gaspar, lim Hammer.
As the play continued, we encountered two
women Rebecca, a seller of beadsg and Sarah, a
seller of vegetables. These were portrayed by
Muriel Sommers and Vera Tilly respectively, who
directed the travelers to the stable in Bethlehem.
ln the final scene, we saw a grand finale of all the
people gathered in the lowly stable to worship
Christ. Mary, played by Eunice Parker, layed the
child in Miriam's arms and miraculously her blind-
ness disappeared. Toseph was played by Robert
Fave: Gwen Kirkeide was the angel, and the part
of a child was played by Shirley Rogers. The shep-
herds were Nathan, Donald Knuijtg Malochy, Maury
Rosenblatt, and Nathaniel, Donald Meidam. The
prologue was read by Audrey Kiser.
Thus, another Christmas play is shelved, and
we only hope that next year's production can egual
the brilliancy of this year's,

Sub-Priorities ot '43
HEverybody ready? Qkay. Curtain." And in
trooped a band ot weary looking actors. The play
was HSub-Priorities ot '43," written by Donald
Knuijt. The troupe had come to this old hall to re-
hearse lor their show. Hoping and praying they
would get a Broadway booking, they began to clean
the place. While they were in the midst ot the work,
several members ot the cast rehearsed their num-
bers. Rosamond Terry, Rosemary Wiegand, loy Ann
Babino, and Harriet Krug sang. With such a good
beginning, everybody was happy, and Kenneth
Shiltz thought he could do it too. l-lis interpretation
ot "the poor woiking goil," made a big hit. Not to
be outdone by this, Don Knuijt presented his im-
personation ot Carmen Miranda. When Harold
l-loile sang to Elaine Smyrneos, all the girls nearly
swconed with envy.
lnto the middle ot this rehearsal walked Bette
Starks, who played an actress already established
on Broadway and who was helping to get the
company a booking. She easily persuaded Bill
l-latch, a tamous producer, to give it to them. The
surprise ot the show occurred when Mr. l-lelble ap-
peared on the stage as a young college lad "work-
ing his way through college." This practically
brought down the house. Harry Muench, the stu-
dents' idea ot a grand triend, was a janitor helping
the cast clean the hall. ln the background every
once in a while, one could see eight legs bouncing.
These belonged to the tloradora girls. When one
looked more closely, he saw the taces ot lanny
Frawley, loan Gage, Onnalee Laabs, and Nancy
Schuetter. The music tor the production was sup-
plied by Dick Bock, Norbert Delrow, Don Giese,
Wayne Lonsdort, Marjorie Schoenebeck, lean
Trautmann, and Keith McClusky. This was the tirst
all-student musical comedy to be presented in the
Gloria McGregor, Elaine Hamilton, Marilyn lens, Gloria Enger, Harriet Krug.
The Great Impersonation
The Annual Dame declamatory recital was given
before the entire student body on December 8.
Coached by Miss Ruth Mcliennan, head of the
speech department, five girls participated in the
program which was held in the afternoon, rather
than evening as of previous years. Due to difficult-
ies in securing adeguate transportation for groups
entering the Dame Declamatory recital, the Fox
River Valley Forensic league was forced to poste
pone the contest for the duration of the war. Thus,
the recital was called the Appleton High School
The speakers, introduced by Mr. Herbert Helble,

basketball games, tootball games, and paradesfe
besides regular concerts.
This year, because ot the war, the band played
a large part in keeping up the morale ot the school
and the city. Many times teeth would be chattering
and tingers would become numb as the organiza-
tion was playing tor the bond rallies in the brisk
November air. Still the band was 'ion the spot"
whenever and wherever they were needed.
The repertoire ot the band numbers this year
included everything from "Pennsylvania Polka"
to "Oberon Overture," and all the selections
were equally appreciated by the various audi-
ences. Concerts were played at the Lawrence
Chapel tor the college students, the Roosevelt
and Wilson lunior High Schools, as well as the
good old Alma Mater herselt.
Naturally, betore every concert and at the
beginning ot the year, the little white cards were
taken out by Mr. Moore, and the testing began.
The band members were prepared tor this
because ot a harmony course taken in the ninth
grade and the training which they received from
seventh grade until high school. The tuture
band members were able to start on tonettes in
the sixth grade. Ot course, the one consolation
tor the seniors was the tact that they could look
back at the past and laugh at the jokes as well
as their anxieties over testing.
Practice makes pertect was the motto ot the
year and as rehearsals continued day atter day
progress was noted as the mistakes were fewer
and any audience can truthtully say that the high
degree ot musicianship attained in past years was
upheld in all concerts and parades ot the band again
The Christmas concert and the big spring con-
cert on May 2 showed the favorable results of such
testing and practicing. In the spring concert three
guest soloists from the Lawrence Conservatory ot
Music were teatured together with six clarinets in a
clarinet soli. A trombone solo and an oboe solo
were also given at this time.
Thus as the year ends and the learned seniors
leave their uniforms and instruments to "Susie"
and "lohnny," who are coming up, we say, "Keep
up the tine ideals and standards ot the Appleton
High School band as we tried to do in the past."

"Give me A f Sound A f What's your A?"
These exclamations form the prelude to any
second hour orchestra rehearsal. Always on the
job the orchestra presented numerous concerts dur-
ing the past year. The first of these was given be-
fore the student body on Wednesday, October 14.
This concert featured Marjorie Schoenebeck, the
concert mistress, who played "Mazurka de Con'
cert" by Ovide Musin as a violin solo.
The highlight of the season was the annual
Christmas concert given jointly with the chorus on
Sunday afternoon, December 13. The beautiful

The orchestra gave another concert on lanuary
25 before the student body. In addition to the
orchestral numbers lean Risse sang a vocal solo and
lean and Mary Lou Trautmann, as duo-pianists,
played 'Danse Macabre" by Saint Saens.
Qne of the orchestra's most thrilling moments
occurred when Mr. Ennio Bolognini, the cellist and
one of our lyceum artists, directed a rehearsal.
Mr. Bolognini, a dashing Argentinian, handled
the orchestra with much finesse, and even the most
dubious of violinists was won over with Mr.
Bolognini's Spanish-inflected language. The
cellist is an old acguaintance of Mr. Williams
and was more than pleased to take over a re-
hearsal or two for his friend.

Do, mi, sol. Familiar chords heard by anyone
who happens to be anywhere in the music depart-
ment. The melodious sounds come from the chorus
room in the lower half of the right wing in Appleton
High School. This chorus, taught to the twitch of
Mr. Glockzin's baton, is known to be one of the
finest in the state.
There are really two mixed choruses. The first
chorus is made of junior and senior boys and girls
who have had at least one semester of second
chorus, and for other upperclassmen who hold that
desire to sing.
The second chorus consists of sophomores who
can and like to sing. A full credit is given for each
full year ot satisfactory work in either chorus.
The singers in the second chorus are being
groomed for the first chorus for next year. They
have all the enthusiasm of sophomores and lend
themselves readily to the lovely part singing that
Soloists for the Christmas concert were Carol lury, lean

The choruses give a concert at Christmas time
which is an annual affair. Of late, they have found
it nice to combine with the orchestra at Christmas
and have a double concert. Part of the concert is
played by the chorus, part by the orchestra, and
part by both together.
The chorus in its blue robes with the gleaming
golden stoles presents as lovely a picture to the eye
as their singing presents on the ear.
The first chorus generally plays for each of the
junior highs at some time during the school year,
and many of the luncheon clubs around town are
honored by the performance ot our chorus at their
respective meeting places.
Both choruses consist of a large number of
students. The first chorus holds about ninety mem-
bers and the second about sixty-four. Like the rest
of the organizations in this school, they have lost
many fine performers to the armed services of our
The community has come to know the chorus
well and to appreciate all the effort that has been
made by each and every student to develop his
own voice to the greatest extent. The test of a truly
great singing group is the facility with which the
voices of the singers blend as one. This perfection
the high school singers have achieved, and the
audiences sit back and sigh with satisfaction as the
harmony of the high school singers floats over their
heads. A note of war crept into the chorus's selec-
tions this year, as an abundance of songs of the
Service was shown in each concert. And any second

This year above all others in physical education
has been spent to develop the body rather than to
interest the students in competitive sports. Since
the government has called tor better physical fitness
in the school, new things have been added to the
curriculum, and easier games have been dropped.
The school year ot IQ43 has brought many
changes, but the most evident one was in the
physical education department. The teachers had
to change the whole curriculum in order to allow
tor gym every day in the week instead oi two or
three times a week. This change was at tirst a little
hard on the students and the gym teachers also.
What the students did once a day the gym teachers
did tive or six times. The classes are doubled in size
and seemed rather awkward to manage, but it did
not take very long until almost everyone was ac-
customed to it.
Body building exercises in general have been
stressed and they were samples ot those given to
the soldiers and sailors. Qt course, the boys had a
more strenuous gym course, but the one given to
the girls was not so very easy either. Every Friday
regardless ot the weather all the gym classes went
outside tor cross-country hikes.
Greater emphasis was placed on home hygiene
and tirst aid so that one would know what to do in
an emergency. All these changes were made to
help build up better bodies in Appleton High School.
The premise ot the program was that better
bodies make tor better living and healthier attitudes.
The untlagging energy ot the statt plus the unquali-
tied co-operation ot the students has borne out this
theory. Everyone was amazed at his own physical
endurance and how each day his strength increased.

Football may or may not be curtailed to a certain
extent for the duration, but if it is, the Appleton fans
may cherish the memories of the "42" season.
The gridmen of this year carved a peculiar
niche for themselves in the annals of Terror history.
They didn't annex the conference championship,
but many of their other accomplishments indicated
their championship caliber. Because of some of
these accomplishments it is felt that the coaches
Seims and Dillon turned out one of most potent grid
machines that the high school has seen for several
First on the list was a pre-season victory over
Racine Horlick of the Big Eight, which incidentally
is recognized as one of the toughest circuits in the
state. The game was billed as the proverbial small
town-big city encounter with the inevitable out-
come a thorough thrashing for the yokels. The
Terrors, however, upset the integrity of the pre-
game dopesters when they overcame a large, fast,
and veteran Horlick eleven by a score of 14-6.
Heartened by their upset over Horlick, the
Terrors prepared for their first conference tilt when
they played host to West Green Bay. The two teams
were well balanced, and the outcome was expected
to produce the strong contender for conference
honors. The game was a dogfight from beginning
to end. Not until late in the third quarter was any
scoring done, but at that time a fleet West back
scampered 60 yards for the only marker of the
game. This one play was the margin of defeat.
Final score: Appleton O, West 7.
Still smarting from their first defeat, the Grange-
men invaded Central. They engaged the Redmen
under lights, and the first half turned out to be a
see-saw battle. Both sides were apparently feeling
each other out. During the process Appleton man-
aged to sneak over the only score before intermis-
sion. The Terrors found themselves early in the
third quarter. From then on they took command and
never ceased pounding the Centralites. At the start
of the fourth quarter Appleton held a substantial
14 point lead. How ever they were not content to
rest, and the final score read: Appleton 21, Central O.
Having vanquished one of the Sheboygan schools,
Appleton prepared to meet the other. North She-
boygan was reputed to be considerably stronger
than Central, and they invaded Appleton with
hopes of being the first North team to defeat us.
North truly was a vastly improved team, and the
Terrors had all they could do to subdue them. Ex-
cept for an early tally the game was scoreless.
When the smoke of battle cleared, the scoreboard
read: Appleton 7, North O.
Next Green Bay East, ancient rivals, entertained
Appleton in their stadium. Once again the specta-
tors witnessed a battle which saw every inch gained
fought for grudgingly. It proved to be a duplication
of the West-Appleton battle and the margin of de-
feat was again one long run. An East back managed

to break away and was downed on the one yard
line. A one-yard plunge accounted for the only
touchdown and the extra point made the final score:
Appleton O, East 7.
After this setback the Terrors decided that al-
though a conference championship was almost out
of the picture, they might yet maintain an admira-
ble average. Things started out with a bang at
Fond du Lac. The Orangemen clicked like a well-
oiled machine. At half-time the score was all tied
up. After intermission things didn't go so well for
the Terrors, and soon they were slipping so de-
finitely that they could not recover. Fondy played
inspired football, and when the gun sounded, they
were threatening the Appleton goal line. The final
score: Fondy 2O, Appleton l4.
After two consecutive setbacks you might ex-
pect a minor explosion from a team which shouldn't
have been losing ball games. That's exactly what
happened. The next game was against Oshkosh.
Once again the Terrors started slowly. Once again
they came back on the field after the half to con-
vincingly whip their opponents. It was the signal
victory of the season. For ten years Appleton had
not been able to win a homecoming game. This
year the jinx was smashed when the Terrors de-
cisively crushed Oshkosh in the homecoming en-
counter by a score of 22-6. A dazed Oshkosh eleven
left the field as jubilant Appleton fans cheered
hysterically. More luster was added to the victory
by the fact that Appleton had not beaten the boys
from the Saw-Dust City since l937.
The season came swiftly to a close. Manitowoc
was the last team on the schedule, and a victory
for the Terrors meant the difference between a suc-
cessful and unsuccessful season. Realizing that this
was their last chance to redeem themselves for pre-
vious losses, the Terrors proceeded to drub Mani-
towoc. Reed Forbush, a brilliant junior back,
started things off with a seventy-yard romp to a
touchdown. All-conference Norb Horn entrenched
his grip on second place in conference scoring by
following with two more touchdowns. The final
score was Appleton 21, Manitowoc O.
Not only was this the last game of the season
but it was the last game for 14 seniors. This fact
probably accounted for zeal with which the boys
played the game. Because of present world condi-
tions the sophs and juniors weren't too sure that
they would be playing next year, and with all the
fellows ostensibly wearing the blue and orange for
the last time, their combined efforts were something
to behold. The result of the game might best be
summed up in these words of Coach Seims who said,
"l believe that the ball club l saw out there this
afternoon could whip the pants off any team in

Proteges ot N aismith
Reminiscent ot the 1930-36 Hgolden era" ot
Appleton basketball were the Blue and Grange
cagers ot 42-43. Compiling a record ot 9 wins and
7 losses, the Terror team had one ot those almost
typical Appleton athletic seasons. Although the
record stands as the best Appleton ettort since l938,
the Terrors still might have been closer.
Never slipping back to the second division, they
still couldn't guite make it to the top rung. This
year's hard charging quintet reminded local tans
ot those tive straight title teams in the early 3O's.
Three veteran lettermen formed the nucleus ot
what was heralded as a dark horse team at the
winters start. Coach Myrlon Seims was banking
most ot his hopes on seniors lim Lueck, Ray Bleier,
and Leland McGuire.
Lueck, in his junior year, had threatened scor-
ing titlist Van Ess all the way, and had tinished a
strong second with l37 points. The classy Terror
pivotman came through this year with another
brilliant showing netting l64 points, although
second to record breaking "Wimpy" Cartier ot
West. Lueck was plagued by concentrated guard-
ing all year as he was a marked man in the league.
He still used his smooth hooks and pushes to best
advantage as other Qrangemen were lett open.
Ray Bleier was one ot the tallest and best co-
ordinated sguad members. His showing this year
topped ott a splendid '4l-'42 performance, and
UDutch" was a valuable aid to the Terror rebound
forces. l-le split the nets tor 88 points and produced
a tlawless tloor game.
"Mickey" McGuire, although lost to the team
late in the year, played one fit the Qrlassiest floor
games in the -of"3f.s-ierice. l-lis B7 points in twelve
games was a leading scoring ettort. Qther promi-
nent seniors on the sguad were loe Qttenstein, a
rebound artist, whose rugged ability was one ot
the team's most valuable assets, Harold Timmers, a
lanky sharpshooter who developed as the year pro-
gressedy and Bob Schrimpt, a smooth passing guard.
A resume ot the Blue and Grange season in the
always tough Fox River Valley Conference shows
us on a par with every team except the champions
ct North Sheboygan.
The hot and cold Terrors started the season by
trouncing Kaukauna 33-l7 on the Ghosts tloor. The
Crangemen had little trouble in the warm up game-
as Lueck and McGuire led the team.
Neenahs Rockets, champions ot the Northeast-
ern League, took the measure ot Appleton, 26-24, in
the home opener. This was a thriller from start to
tinish, but the Redmen were too smooth in the
clutch tor the less experienced Terrors.
First blood in the Fox Valley Conterence race
went to the Blue and Grange as they drubbed
Central 27-l8 at Appleton. The Terrors outclassed
the detending champs and led them all the way.
Travel-weary and hampered by court conditions,
Appleton dropped a convincing ftl-29 decision to
the Redrnen at Sheboygan. Lueck had gone up
there last year to duel it out with Spence Van Ess,
and this year neither the crowd nor his opponents
would let him forget that the pressure was on. Our
star center was throttled by two or three men at
every move, but still produced ten points, This was
the first game ot the second round, and put the
Seimsmen in tourth place.
GREEN BAY WEST
Playing inspired ball against the team tavored to
win the Valley title, our men in blue and orange
took the West Wilclcats 80-28, at Green Bay.
McGuire's overtime push shot won the Clcllllit atter
a hectic tour guarters ended 28-28.
ln the second round the high riding West
seniors had too much Cartier tor Appleton, and the

while, and the precision of West's fine team was
something to remember. The Terror's will, as will
lim Lueck, who hit for ten well made points while
his scoring rival, Cartier, pounded through twenty.
FOND DU LAC
In a decided upset, the lowly Fondy Cardinals
edged a win over our team, 21-15, at Fond du Lac.
The Terror defeat has been attributed to over-
confidence, laziness, and several other things, but
the Orangemen were certainly off. Vengeance was
wrought on the Fond du Lac team, however, when
Appleton drubbed them, 41-28, on the home court.
Lueck and Bates shone in this game.

The cellar-dwelling Oshkosh lndians provided
Valley fans with two thrillers against Appleton, this
year. A rebound battle on the small Oshkosh floor
was decided with 40 seconds left to play as our
dependable lim Lueck dropped a free throw for a
27-26 Appleton victory.
Up here it was junior Duane Bates and Co-
Captain Bleier who sparked the Terrors to a 39-33
last quarter win over the lndians. "Dutch" turned
in one of the finest games of his career as his six
field-goals led Blue and Orange scoring. Oshkosh
was tall and troublesome, but our boys came through
with the chips down.

North on a par with West for the Fox Valley title.
Proof of this, and a big reason for North's resultant
winning of the pennant, were the two games the
Raiders took from Appleton.
At Appleton the tall, hard-driving Northmen
looked like a college team while beating our boys,
38-32. At Sheboygan the Terrors waged a might-
have-been-but-wasn't battle, and lost to the rebounds
and speed of North, 38-33.
GREEN BAY EAST
Our traditional Red Devil rivals fared poorly
against the Terrors this year. Lueck, McGuire,
Offenstein, and other football men gained sweet
revenge for the Appleton defeat on the gridiron.
"Luke" and "Mickey" poured them in from all
angles as the Orange outclassed East here, 46-28.

also said there was every hope that basketball
would continue in the league next year along the

Une of the first Appleton High School victims of
the national transportation problem was the Tunior
Varsity basketball team. ln recent years the Fox
River Valley Conference had maintained a Tunior
Varsity league, with all the member schools enter-
ing teams and playing varsity preliminaries.
ln those Ugood old days" the Appleton B sguad
went along in the bus with the varsity and played a
regular schedule. The 1942-'43 season, however,
saw every team in the Fox Valley loop desert the
road for trains, leaving the hapless Bees at home.
With an eye on the future, Appleton High
School refused to let this productive source of
varsity material die. A schedule that included pre-
liminaries to all home games and several road
trips was arranged for coach "Pete" Briese's Bees,
although the schedule was reduced.
This year'S lunior Terrors were somewhat handi-
capped by lack of height and ruggedness, but they
came along fast toward the end of the year. Home
games were played with two intra-sguad teams, an
all-star intramural team, the Liberty Hi-Y, Neenah,
St. Mary's Menasha and Kaukauna High Schools.
Every night after school the layvees, seven sophs
and five juniors, received their best practice in
scrimmages with the varsity. They never failed to
give a good account of themselves, and several of
the boys should work in with the varsity next year.
The following boys saw service with the B Squad
this season: Bob Derfus, Merrill Maahs, Reed For-
bush, Dick Bailey, and Fred Bauer, juniors, Bob
Eichinger, Norman Wassman, Don Steger, Dick
Boya, Don Brockman, Marty Werner, and Floyd

Rounding out an excellent year in Appleton
High athletics, the Blue and Orange track team
enjoyed a highly successful 1943 season. The Terror
thin-clads began the year with one ot the best
balanced sguads in the Valley. They were two and
three deep in every event, and Coach Marvin
Babler was a little more cheertul than his usual
cautious pre-season form.
Mighty lim Groh heaves the discus a goodly 40 feet.
An abundance ot lettermen was one cause for
encouragement. Back with letters and plenty ot
experience were co-captains lim Groh, Wes Bunks,
Reed Forbush, Mickey McGuire, Ken Davis, Norb
Stoeger, Don Hilgendort, and lim Lueck. Groh was
one ot the state's leading high school weight men.
McGuire and Bunks were two top tlight pole vault-
ers who could be counted on tor points. The stocky
McGuire doubled in the shot and discus, and he
made several tine showings in the latter event.
Forbush ran the 440 and doubled in broad jump
and high jump. Davis and Groh also high jumped.
Stoeger was a promising miler who developed into
a winner. Hilgendort was a consistent quarter-miler,
while Lueck ran the dashes. Groh and Wes Bunks
were elected captains.
With this nucleus and a tlock ot iine candidates
with less experience but lots ot ability and determi-
nation, the Terror thin-clads pulled through a hard-
tought win in the annual Wisconsin Rapids Relays.
The meet was decided in the relay tinale, by a
crack Terror combination ot Rosenthal, Forbush,
Williams, and Hilgendort. Every man on the sguad
scored, and some latent talent was unearthed,
namely, Ben Rosenthal, Frank Sanders, Don Wil-
liams, Carl Dohr, and Chuck Wallens.

Varsity tennis entered its most trying year as a
major letter sport with its brightest prospects in
years. This season the Terror netters pointed toward
a conference championship with tive returning
lettermen to till the tive positions on the team.
Coaching reigns were taken over by able Ade
Dillon, and he had his charges on the courts as soon
as spring had decided it was here to stay. Coach
Dillon announced to his team that their ettorts
would be pointed toward winning the conference
crown at the Fox Valley League meet at Manitowoc,
Dual meets were planned with Neenah, Menasha,
Oshkosh, and Lawrence college. All ot these squads
were tough, but Appleton's material was such that
victories were expected over most ot the opponents.
Returning lettermen were Captain Bill Younger,
lohn Lindberg, Wayne Lonsdort, Bud Falatick,
and Dick Boon. Younger and Lindberg were exe
perienced seniors, while the other three were
veteran and tournament wise juniors. ,
Some ot these boys had competed in the con-
ference meet in 1942. Lonsdort, as a sophomore,
had fought his way to the semi-finals and fourth
place. Falatick had gone to the consolation semi-
tinals. Lindberg played in the singles, Younger in
the doubles. Boon played in most ot the dual meets,
and gained valuable experience for this year's

Up, down, up, downp onestwo-three-tour. This
is a tamiliar retrain that can be heard any hour ot
the day emanating from the high school gymnasium.
lt's the exercises that boys and girls alike are hav-
ing as a part ot the physical education program
instituted tor the second semester. Gym work has
been increased to live days a week to prepare the
students physically as well as mentally tor much
exertion in the armed torces or on the home tront.
Exercises scientitically designed to tind every mus-
cle in the students body and to build it until it is
taut and strong are enthusiastically done. For the
tirst tew days there were many aching and protest-
ing students, but they were pleasantly surprised
atter a weelc to see how their endurance had in-
creased and how much more tit they telt.
Much emphasis is placed on being outdoorsg so
bundled up well the gym classes have been in-
dulging in long crcss country hikes. There are also
the ropes and rings on which to show ones prowess
and coordination. Every piece ot eguipment has
been utilized to the tullest extent.
The girls under the direction of Miss Callenloach are learning military drill . . . The boys are getting a taste ot commando training
in the gym on the parallel bars and on the ropes.
Silliman, Mullen, Horn, Osinga, Vander Linden, Karras, and Hilgendorf swing across the gym on the rope to toughen their arms and
shoulders. The man on the flying rings exhibits some fancy maneuvers.
Some day the boys who are swinging on the
ropes in the picture will be doing that very thing
only not tor enjoyment. Commando tactics such as
these help to build strong and healthy bodies, which
are needed these days. Even the simple exercises
done in all the gym classes help to build muscles.
Due to Wartime regulations the gym program
was revised to meet the demands. A general tough-
ening up course was set in motion. Both boys and
girls did about the same set of exercises. The classes
had an obstacle course which was used primarily
by the boys to get them used to such training. The
girls went over it only once in a while for it was
much too strenuous for constant use by them.
A demonstration was given by a chosen group
of boys and girls before the Physical Education
teachers during the Northeastern Wisconsin Edu-
cation Association's convention here on April 3rd,
A first aid course was given to seniors during
their gym periods once a week by Mr. William
Pickett. ln these classes, they learned the funda-
mentals of bandaging, splinting, and general first-
aid. The thing which was worked on the hardest
was artificial respiration. Tests were given, and
those who passed received a Red Cross First Aid
Certificate. These certificates are highly sought after
by the seniors.
The care of infants was an important unit in the
l-lomemaking class. The proper methods of bathing,
clothing, feeding and keeping a child happy were
learned by the girls. Nutrition and diet was another
important study. Balanced and delicious meals
were planned in order to give the girls practical
experience in meal planning.
The most practical and economical ways of
clothing a family on a limited budget was also
taught to the girls. Budgets were also worked out
and imaginary families lived by them.
This training helped the younger generation to
adjust themselves to life in a war world. All this
added up to the fact that Appleton High School is
going all out for the war effort,

lf you happened to visit the small gym on a
Tuesday during the year you were probably treated
to some rare sights. Under the direction of Mr.
David Black a group of boys and girls are learning
how to become amateur contortionists.
At the start of the year there were but a few
veterans from last year returning. The club really
became popular when it went on exhibition be-
tween halves of a few basketball games. Everyone
saw the kids at work and it looked so easy. Next
week there was guite a turn out. But it wasn't as
easy as it looked. They had to Work hard and take
a lot of knocks and bumps and failures. They
touched upon the art of swings on the rings. With
Clayton Silliman, who was probably the best tum-
bler of the bunch, leading the host, they greatly im-
proved their technigue and were awe inspiring out
on exhibition. Another up and coming tumbler was
Bob Robinson, famous for his front flips. He also
performed on the rings.
Except for the few veterans of last year, every-
one had to start from the beginning. Coach Black
began by teaching them the plain front and back
rolls. After several weeks of progress he started
the members with the fish flop, a take off on the
- Next on the list was the head stand, thence to
the hand stand and the art of walking on the hands.
Some were better than others, but they were all
learning, slowly but surely. Those that could stand
on their head and hands found the front head flip
and hand flip very easy. Others had a little more
difficulty, but all got it.
This was accomplished about mid-year. Their
"Basic Training" completed, they were ready to
go on to more intricate stunts. Next on the line were
the flip-ups which were used as a finale, generally
by the performers in their routines. Even at the end
of the year they were still working on the back flip.
From here they branched out into separate die
visions and specialties known as routines. Each had
a routine which was his performance and he added
some new things each time. Some of the fellows
learned so many new things that they considered it
appropriate to drop some of the others and let those
that were not progressing so rapidly use them. lt
was like this all through the year. An atmosphere of
friendliness reigned throughout the gym. Nobody
was ever considered better than the next fellow.
Each helped the other and thence the remarkable
lust ask any of these boys or girls who are in the
club what they think of it. They'll tell you almost to
a person that they will be back next year trying
again. And they really think a lot of Coach Black.
He should be given a good share of credit for com-
ing here new at the beginning of the year, starting
almost from scratch, and developing such a fine

This year because everyone was so busy in so
many other extra activities, and the school was
going out for the war effort, the Girls' Athletic
Association has not been able to accomplish all
the things which they have intended to do. How-
ever, the girls have still been able to play field
hockey in the fall and basketball in the winter.
The G.A.A. does not limit their work only to
their own organization, but they also do things for
the students of Appleton High. This year as usual
they sponsored the banquet for the varsity and the
B sguad basketball teams. They polished up all the
trophies in the trophy case, and that is some job.
They sold ice cream and candy bars at all football
and basketball games every year. Everyone cer-
tainly appreciated this.
The chairmen of all the sport tournaments were
selected at the beginning of the year by the club
advisers and the club officers. The club advisers
were the gym teachers, Miss Callenbach and Miss
Robarge while the president of G.A.A. this year
was Beverly Schuh.
After the members have earned their thirty
points to enter the club, they do not stop but con-
tinue to earn more. Every game in which a girl
participates gives her a certain number of points.
Such activities as hiking, swimming, bicycling and
so forth are individual activities. These also count
toward the number of points to be earned. At the
end of the year all of the points are added up and
the girls with the greatest number of points are re-

The high school has been drafted. At first this
may seem like a strong statement but that is literally
true. The students have been instructed to assist in
the war effort whenever possible. The facilities of
the school have been placed at the disposal of the
general war effort.
Students are acquainted with the different meth-
ods of conservation which are vital during times
like these. They are familiarized with these methods
not only for their own use but so they can pass this
information to others.
The art classes have constructed a shield upon
which those boys who attended Appleton High
School and have died in action are recognized.

As leaders of the policy of Appleton High
School and all the other schools in the city, the
administrators have had a particularly trying
year. As the war increased in fury, the demands
made upon the schools became greater. The
school board was hampered by shortages and
increased costs, but by dint of hard work, they
came through the year with flying colors.
lt was particularly hard for the adminis-
tration of the schools to advise every student as
to the wisest pursuance of his uncertain future.
Many long hours were spent planning to make
each moment of each students school year help
him in the preparation for his chosen vocation
and for his future living. Many students were
preparing to join the armed forces so new
courses had to be instituted to help them be well
prepared. With so many of Appleton High's
boys going into the service it is only natural
that the administration should be called more
frequently to vouch for the character and the
scholastic record of boys.
Cur administrators have seen to it that all of
the latest data on the trends of the armed forces
insofar as enlistments and occupational possi-
bilities are concerned have been available to
the boys at all times. Due to this foresight, many
mistakes have been avoided concerning enlist-
ments. Boys have been better able to select
their branch of service after first consulting the
pamphlets which have been made available.
The administration had also the bulk of the
duties of rationing for gasoline and canned
goods for which they were responsible. Added
to his many duties, each member of the board and of
the school authorities was active in defense of his own
neighborhood and throughout the city at large.

Because civilians and lots of them are neces-
sary to the war effort and because these civilians
must be instructed in regard to their duties, the
faculty has played an important part in the
organization of civilian defense agencies. They
have devoted many hours instructing and taking
an active part in all phases of the local war effort.
A committee composed of faculty members
have started a war scrap book. They have com-
piled records of former students who are now
in the armed forces. Many of the teachers are
air raid wardens and auxiliary firemen. Aside
from being active in these groups they also
instruct courses along these lines.
ln answer to the urgent need for citizens
trained in the rudiments of first aid and home
nursing some of the faculty are instructing
people in these courses. With the advent of the
ration setup the teachers prepared to assume
the responsibility of the public registration. This
work involved many hours of tedious work.
As a result of the teachers instructing civil'
ians, many of the students went home to find
that their parents had become very familiar with
the faculty. This produced more cooperation.
Mr. Babler and Lieutenant Thorson are exchanging reminiscences.
Lieutenant Thorson is a member of the high school faculty who is
now in the marines . . . Miss Brooks, Miss Smith, Miss Ritchie, and
Miss Carter are attending to their overwhelming duties as members
of the War Records Committee.
Like all the other teachers, Mrs. Olson is helping to register civilians
The war has been responsible for an acute
shortage of teachers. Many of the male teachers
have left for the armed forces, and many of the
others have taken more attractive government
positionsg consequently this year has seen many
new faces on the faculty. ln order to recruit
more potential teachers we have had several
assemblies stressing the need for qualified in-
structors. Teachers prominent in their fields
have outlined some of the special inducements
in these respective fields. They also urged stu-
dents who thought that they were gualifiedlto
investigate the teaching field immediately.
Class work this year has been much more
unstable and shifting than for many previous
years. The teachers and students have taken
this change in their stride, and instead of allow-
ing standards of education to drop or evaporate
completely, they have been considerably raised.
Students have begun to realize that they need a
thorough education as well as native ability to
succeed in any endeavor. Boys who have tried
to enter officers' training and girls who wanted
to become nurses or enter officers' training have
discovered this from their own experience.
Teachers have accepted the challenge for more
and better students by increasing their own
work and giving as much individual help to
their students as was humanly possible.
The result of this close cooperation between
student and teacher has been an understanding
and knowledge that is difficult to achieve.
Through mutual understanding students and
teachers both have been able to work up to their
capacity not only in classes but also for the com-

records with a smile. Students are well looked after,
and the many finances are properly balanced. The
people who keep our splendid building looking so

Girl Reserve traditions must be carried out in
wartime as well as in peacetime, and so the Gleam
was tollowed by a group ot exuberant girls during
the year. According to tradition, the year was
started with a "get acquainted" party tor all students
new to the curriculum ot Appleton High School. ln-
tormative talks were given by various representa-
tives ot our clubs and extra-curricular activities.
Some of the G.R. initiates take the induction quite calmly. They are

Because ot the war the annual tall initiation
banquet was eliminated, but the new members
were tormally initiated into G.R. early in November.
instead ot the traditional pencil sale at Christ-
mas time, the members sold as many boxes ot at-
tractive stationery as possible in order to carry out
the club's main goalf--helping those who need
help. Clothes, tood, and other essentials were pur-
chased with the money earned by the sales.
Soon the whole group turned out en masse to
make aighans tor wounded servicemen. These

The Senior Class of 43. lt will long be re-
membered as having graduated in one of the
most hectic years in the history of our country.
When we entered high school, little did we
anticipate the tremendous change which was
to take place before our graduation, a change
which was to change our lives entirely.
Little did we realize that the same students
who were entering high school with us would
be in far off Army camps and battlefields when
we graduated. Probably no senior class in the
history of the school will have been so corn-
Wayne Reichel, Bette Schlintz, and Laura Bell DeLong
are preparing for a better post-war world by studying the
bulletin board on peace,
pletely dispersed as this one has been in such
a short time.
For many of us the preparations which
we have made in high school will have to be
pushed into the background, and an entirely
new course will have to be pursued until the
world is again back on a normal basis.
Thus we are going out into a world which is
seething with turmoil, but whatever the case
may be we still had the experiences that only
high school can afford. We've formed friend-
ships which will never be forgotten. We've
compiled a library of memories which will
never be exhausted. Our experiences in ath-
letics, school plays, dances, football and
Members of the cast for a senior English class play are
Ruth Herberg, Natalie Bolduan, Lois Deschler, Bonnie
Van Handel, Bernice Ellefson, Lois lohnson, and lean
basketball games, publications, clubs, classes,
and in the office have all become a part of us
and will never be forgotten.
Yes, we are not graduating under the most
desirable conditions, and the result will no
doubt affect our future lives. But we still have
the memories of a normal high school educa-
tion, of three years which will never be re-
lived but which will never be forgotten.
Financial and advertising managers of the senior class play were
larnes Kluge, Yvonne DeDecker, Robert DeWet, and Ray Bleier.
