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." L, - V 194 PP LET SENIOR HIGH CHOCDL CO-EDITORS JAMES LUECK WILLIAM TORNOW ASSOCIATE EDITOR ELAINE HAMILTON PHOTOGRAPHER KATY BENTON co-BUSINESS MANAGERS MARY KETTENHOFEN JANICE WICKESBERG 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. Page 6 Hx 1 l T 0 T?

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 each week. 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. Table Cf Contents LANGUAGES ........ .............,.,.

I xixX Xx ixXxXxXi X . ,xXxXXOxXxX t 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- Word Technicians 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 own life-time. 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 ADELA KLUMB: English head, Girl Reserves . . . FLORENCE ROBINSON: English, Talisman, Quill and Scroll . . .

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.

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.

Page 12 Literary Lights 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.

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. Student librarian Eleanor Van Dyke prepares ti new set of books for circulation. Page 13 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 Haase. 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.

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. ELSlE KOPPLIN: Latin, Latin club . . . SOPI-HA HAASE: German head, German club, English . . .

Classicists 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, leanne Gallaher. On February 4, the 'llfoedus Latinum Club" held its annual open house for the mothers of the members. This open house is held so that the teachers and mothers may become better acquainted. 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.

Linguists The national emergency really hit this year's advisers, Mr. Henn. Then the new college program German club hard. First the long arm of selective which was instituted to rush the education of senior 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.

Goodwill Ambassadors The Spanish club, Amigos Siempre, is under the supervision of Miss Lila Locksmith. The meetings are held every second and fourth Monday of the month. The club, which was organized in November, is now recognized as a full-fledged language club of Appleton Senior High School. The Spanish students who have res ceived the reguired standings are eligible for club entrance. The officers elected were Ruth Robertson, president, lim Kluge, vice-president, Shirley Buesing, secretary, and lune Gerhartz, treasurer. The purpose of the Spanish club is to develop a deeper interest in Spanish, to bring the teacher and students together in a sociable manner which cannot be achieved in the class room, and to bring out the cultural side of the Spanish language. lt also serves as a hospitality group of the school.

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 Worldly Wise 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 courses. 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. KENNETH EDGE: History, oratory . . .

Page l8 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 natural resources. 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- morrow. ----------- H------H ----- f-4. sv---W -- --- -f - , , H - Social science, history, assistant football and basketball coach . . .

Speakers All 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 lapan. 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 orators were outstanding, however, and their knowledge of world affairs was amazing. Their speaking ability was above that of the usual high school student. lames lunge, Charles Wallens, Maury Rosenblatt, Karl Hoelzel, Bill Younger.

Point Stressers 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 and argument, 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 outside competition. 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.

Safety First 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 Page 22 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. Formula Finders 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 X xwlg . .k1'xQ',' O Q, X fm, gr 6' 'H' PJ l 1:51 .Ete- ' ' O I D ?E?r 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 radio work. MARGARET RITCHIE: Biology . . . WALLACE COLE: Chemistry, wrestling . . . MRS.

Experiments are the things that liven the chem' istry and physics departnioiits. They give the stu- dents a better understanding ot the work. ln the chemistry room the students work with the little glass tubes and experiment on the chemical content ot matter. ln physics the students are taught the laws ot gravity, theories pertaining to ligl1t, the laws ot heat, vacuums, and numerous other phe- nomena.

Nature Lovers The Nature club has accomplished a great deal plant life, etc., to the lives of various animals. The in this past year. They have finished a dark room members feel that they not only enjoy their meetings, for the personal use of all the Nature club photog- but they also obtain valuable information and ex- raphers. All of their equipment is kept there, and perience which they can get in no other way. the windows are blacked out. The club is divided into two parts. Everyone is considered a mem- ber of the Nature club, but those who are pri- marily interested in photography deal specially with that subject. They take pictures, develop them, and enlarge them. Some members also take portraits. This year the club had a very original and patriotic idea. Instead of making the usual round Christmas wreaths, they made them in the shape of V's, and decorated the doors of all the classrooms. The club now consists of fifty members. Each year since the club began there has been a decided increase in members. One of the dis- tinctive features of the Nature club is its field trips. Practically any nice day you might see the group starting out to Center Swamp, their favorite outdoor meeting place. The members have their share of good times. They are noted for their frequent parties and pleasure jaunts. For club meetings they discuss subjects ranging from the formation cf rocks, taxidermy, hm, Vice-president Don Jury, Secretary-treasurer Eleanore Van Dyke, and President Roland Rehfeldt look over the books in preparation for a meeting.

Ground Work 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 general. 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 Barbara Harkins and Helmut Kruger are calculating with a caliper. Page 26 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 to come. Flying Fingers "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. 14 H Y ' Alirxl 04" Q p ul r -c. ,il ,'E 5E!2g A or , F .4 ff - o 'vllllilii 4 L :Egg Q Q ' I5 in -2 5.

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. BRUNO KRUEGER: Commercial head, Talisman, Commercial club, Quill and Scroll . . .

Page 27 Mr. Krueger carries out the typewriters given to the government assisted by volunteers Ellis Batley, Duane Rector, Earl Ehlke, and Wesley Backes . . . The busy office practice class is turning out work for war agencies daily. Another contribution to the war ettort by the commercial department was the selling ot ten type- writers to the government. Because ot the acute shortage ot typewriters, the government gladly 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 ways. Constantly striving to maintain the high place it holds in this liberal arts school, the commercial department has continually followed the career oi a student through and beyond high school. Every effort has been made to tind a position tor the com- mercial graduate. Well-rounded personalities and pleasing secretarial smiles come out ot the depart- ment and its tine commercial club. The training is divided in two sections, a general training group tor business theory, and a vocational division tor more technical and advanced study. The stress was on practicability in our com- mercial department this year. Placements in Apple- ton and Valley business circles ot Appleton com- mercial students have always been high due to this policy. Two tormer Appleton High School commercial instructors, Miss Eleanor Tredinnick and Miss Mar- jorie Stritzel, have lett the school tor work in direct contact with the war. They have taken positions in Madison as civilian radio instructors tor the Army Air Corps. Very capable replacements, Miss Frances Millis and Miss RoseAnn Rigney, were brought in tor them. With the addition oi so much war work to their every day duties, the commercial department ot Appleton High School is setting a splendid example tor education everywhere. Because oi the critical shortage oi typewriters juniors who are not majoring in a commercial course will not be able to take typing next year. This is a torerunner ot the many restrictions which the com- mercial department expects next year. However the department expects to have enough machines on hand to carry on most ot its business courses during the coming year.

Commercialists 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 printing of football programs for the homecoming game, the donation of a large basket of food to a needy family at Thanksgiving, and at Christmas, and of course, their annual picnic. The club, which was organized in 1934, is open only to seniors majoring in commercial Work. An unusual feature of the club is that there are no dues. All the club's money is raised by their sponsorship of programs for the homecoming game. The sponsors of the club are Mr. Krueger, Miss Livermore, Mr. Simon, Miss Rigney, and Miss Millis. The officers of the club are president, Marcella Coppens, vice-president, Catherine O'Neilly secretary, Wayne Reichelg and treasurer, Laraine Ulman. lanice Wickesberg, Wayne Reichel, Earl Ehlke, Laraine Ulman, Marcella Coppens, and Catherine O'Neill are planning a club program. Page 29 Economy Wise 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 best advantage. 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 fighting. The boys in these classes fully realize by this time just how important this course has been for i,,l-. .111- 11, i...-...-1-v .i 4, i ara, , tv ,yi L ., x 5' If "', -e is : 5 .2 A s T - . ax- - J 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 School.

Lavila Diemer is getting ready to cut out her dress. 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. Lorna Porath has discovered that proper pressing plays a large part in good grooming . . . Mary Monaghan is mastering the difficult art of pattern-pinning.

Bernice Kern, Betty Klapper, Patricia Kavany, and Delores Brockman present their vitamins for winter consumption. 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 Page 32 supplies provide the classes for the remainder ot the year and usually last until the tall ot the next year. 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. Craftsmen 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.

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 model planes. 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 SIDNEY COTTON: Sophomore drawing, auto mechanics, printing . . .

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.

Model Airplane club was organized two years ago for airplane enthusiasts and has progressed steadily until now it has a roster ot twenty members. 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 History Department. 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- plane spotting. The club has grown in importance until this year it has become a first-rate war project. Wayne Reichel, Dick Bock, and Eugene Tischhauser are making a model airplane display for the library. Page 35 The Arts 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- KENNETH KUEMMERLEIN: Art, lighting crew . . . RUTH MC KENNAN: Speech head, declamation, dramatics . . .

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.

The-spians All 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. These two-thirds rarely get applause, but there isn't a production possible without their whole-hearted co-operation. Acting as a clearing house tor all dramatic pro' ductions, Curtain Call members assisted in the plan' ning and execution ot all the dramatic programs ot the year. loyce Flynn is making lack Adrian look dashing and romantic for his role in the senior class play.

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 beautiful memory. 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 Page 38 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.

Young April 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. Page 40 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 "right one." 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 . . .

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 Page 42 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- out fear. 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, Page 43 The tloradora girls, loan Gage, lanny Frawley, Nancy Schuetter, and Onnalee Laabs, provided a decorative background tor the musical numbers . . .

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 Page 44 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 new auditorium. .fig .fn Wg 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 Declamatory recital. The speakers, introduced by Mr. Herbert Helble, principal, were chosen from twenty-six students who tried out. Gloria Enger gave a cutting from "On Borrowed Time," by Paul Usborne in which the author attempted to reveal the undying love of a small child named Pud for his grandfather. Hlllu- sion," by Anizie Strickland was chosen by Elaine Hamilton in which she portrayed a young woman whose husbands image appears to her after his electrocution. The selection of Gloria MacGregor was i'Wingless Victory," telling of the worldly am- bitions causing a man to lose everything which he holds dear, which was written by Maxwell Ander- son. Marilyn lens read 'Dark Victory," by George Brewer and George Emerson displaying the cours age of a woman given a few months to live, The story of Nazi Germany and a poor German girl who tries to help her lover escape to Austria was given by Harriet Krug. ludges elected Miss Tens as first place winner, and her name will be engraved on the "Hall of Fame" plague.

Moore, director ot the Appleton High School Band. Atter all, what is a school withs out a band? A band that rehearses in the summer as well as the school yearg a band that plays at 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 Page 46 Harmony degree ot musicianship attained in past years was upheld in all concerts and parades ot the band again this year. 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." Bill Younger and Tom Watson, soloists tor the spring concert, are practicing diligently.

Sweet Strings "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 formals of the orchestra together with the blue and gold robed choristers in the background and the Mr. Ennio Bolognini, famous South American cellist, offers inspira- tion for Carmen Eisner and Mary Lou Trautman. second chorus in the stage balcony was truly an impressive sight. A preliminary concert was pre- sented to the student assembly on Thursday, De- cember lO. 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. Filling in the intermissions of the senior class play and playing for the district teachers' con- vention plus a spring concert for the students made the spring season a busy one for the or- chestra. The string ensemble made up of various mem- bers of the orchestra contributed its talentto vari- ous civic organizations and rallies throughout the year. The orchestra members and the entire stu- dent body were given a rare treat when a ly- ceum number included a child violinist who had won a national contest in music.

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 they do. Soloists for the Christmas concert were Carol lury, lean Risse, Donald Waterman, Marion Baer, and Margery Schoene- beck. Page 48 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 country. 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 hour anyone walking by the chorus room could hear strains of HThe Caissons Go Rolling Along," or some other army or navy song coming out of the door. Qur school is duly proud of its chorus and director, and well they might beg for it is organiza- tions like our chorus that have built the reputation of our school to the height which it has attained. ...-.

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 Physical Fitness 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. MARY ORBISQNZ Nurse, home hygiene . . . LAWRENCE WITZKE: Physical education, cheerleaders . . .

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 years. 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.

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 the conference." Of the 14 seniors, 3 were given conference recognition. Captain-elect Norb Horn was honored with the all-conference fullback position on the first team. lim Lueck was given an end berth on the second team. Don I-lilgendorf was chosen as a guard on the second team. Other seniors were Bob Mullen, lim Groh, Bill Brinkman, lim Kimball, Le- land McGuire, Norb Horn, Don Hilgendorf, Wes Bunks, loe Offenstein.

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 Page 54 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. NGN-CQNEERENCE 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. SHEBOYGAN CENTRAL 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 Terrors lost, 38-31, here.

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. SHEBOYGAN NORTH Pre-season dope rated the Golden Raiders of dwindle in the last guarter to a well gained 31-24 Appleton victory. OSHKOSH 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. Seims is smiling, Appleton must be winning . . . los- applauds a teammate's basket . . . What a beautiful back you have, "Dutch." 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. At East the Seimsmen ran up a 26-9 lead to see it Page 56 MANITOWOC A feared Shipbuilder sguad got its ears pinned back by the sharpshooting Orangemen, 45-30, at Appleton. lim Lueck, who has found the Manty defense to his liking for two years, produced 17 points and a great floor game. At Manitowoc the Terror 5 bowed to an inspired group of Manitowoc veterans, 32-29. lim Lueck bowed out his career with 14 points and a fine game. l'Dutch" Bleier netted nine and played excellent ball. As the annual basketball banquet wrote finis to this successful cage season Cour second in wartimel, Coach Seims awarded letters to the following boys: lames Lueck, Ray Bleier, loe Offenstein, Harold Timmers, Bob Schrimpf, Roger Popelka, Carl Dohr, '43, Duane Bates, '44. Bates, the only junior letterwinner, was named captain by his mates for next season. 1-le is a hard driving, fighting type of player, and should make a fine leader. Post season honors were showered on Appleton basketball men this year. For the second consecutive year our outstanding center lim Lueck, wound up his season with a forward berth on the first all- conference team. 1-le was the only repeater on the first sguad. Second team all-conference honors went to Appleton's flashy guard, Mickey McGuire. Ray Bleier, loe Offenstein, and Duane Bates were ac- corded honorable mention. The Blue and Orange prospectus for next year is probably not as bright as was that of this season.

Present as guests were the members of the varsity, the Bee Sguad, Manager Bob Pekel, Sportswriters Dick Davis and Chuck Wallens, and Coaches Seims and Briese. Mr. Witte expressed his appreciation of the fact that Appleton's team has acguired a reputation of sportsmanship and fair play among the referees and member schools of the Fox Valley Conference. 1-le also said there was every hope that basketball would continue in the league next year along the same lines as this season, that is, travel by train or occasionally bus, and home and home series.

Iayvees 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 lahnke, sophomores.

Fleet Feet 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. Page 60 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. Shawano, Kaukauna, New London, Fond du Lac, East Green Bay, Oshkosh, Manitowoc, Neenah, and the conference meet rounded out a heavy war- time schedule.

Netsters 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, May 21. 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 competition. ,,.,--"' Captain Bill Younger spikes another ball across the net.

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. Page 62 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, Virginia Heule administers first aid to a victim of the splint corps, while Ioyce Flynn with her arm in a sling watches Marion Dins bandage a cracked skull . . .

Tumblers 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 backward roll. - 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 Page 64 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 progress. 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 organization.

Girl Athletes 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- warded. The leaders of girls' sports for the current year were Vivian Schmidt, loyce Wilson, Ruth Schwandt, and Ethel De-eg. Page 65 Roy Bongers and lack Took are painting the shield which will hang in the auditorium with a gold star on it for every Appleton High School graduate killed in action . . . Mr. Helble explains fine new patriotic emblem to Robert Nolan, Dick Bailey, and Bill Tornow. 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. l The library has cooperated with its fine display of victory gardens which is being studied by Virginia Kamps and Eleanore Van Dyke .. , The boys who work in the cafeteria are helping Mrs. Heckel flatten cans for the tin salvage drive.

Leaders 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 Page 68 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. HERBERT H. HELBLE: Principal . . . MARY BAKER: Dean of girls, Girl Reserves . . . WERNER WITTE: Assistant principal, faculty ath- letic manager, social science . . . 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 for rationing. 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- munity welfare. Page 69 VIRGINIA NABBEFELD: Clerk . . . EMILY INDERMUEHLE: Clerk . . . MRS. CHARLES HECKEL: Cafeteria . . . Morale Builders Keeping the wheels of the school running smooths ly is a major job. There is not only the building to keep in order, but there are also records to keep, attendance records to compileg and the students must be well fed and happy. The office has taken over the job of keeping 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 shining and new should receive a special Word of gratitude from all. Their cheerful helpfulness does much to brighten up the day for everyone. Harry Muench, one of the most popular of the janitors, is planning cn leaving for a job on the Alcan Highway in Canada this summer. In the cafeteria, lunches are served every noon. In this time of War when everyone needs every ounce of energy, it is especially important that we eat properly and scientifically. For the many stus dents and teachers who stay here at noon, the cafeteria fills this need. All these departments contribute not only to the morale but also the well-being of each student in school.

To start with, the council assumed Because the war has curtailed most of the social the bond selling duties of the school.

They handled the situation by sponsoring several dances at the council's expense. The councilors also were placed in charge of recruiting students to aid in registration for all ration programs. Some two hundred students volunteered to help. This year the council started what might turn out to be an annual event. They decided to com- memorate Pearl Harbor Day by an all out effort in buying defense stamps. Each student was asked to buy at least one stamp. The idea was so successful that it will probably be repeated next year. At their first meeting the representatives of the student body elected officers for the year. Tom Watson was their choice as president. Reed Forbush was elected vice-president. As their gmia Kampsl president Tom Watson, secretary-treasurer they selected Virginia Kamps. its Left to right: Vice-president Reed Forbush, secretary-treasurer Vir- Page 71 U Upper picture, standing: Frawley, Schaefer, Schuetter, Hooyman, Gebhardt, Clapp, Gage, Reider, Callahan, Trautman, Archer, Wood, seated: Laabs, Letter, Enger, Miss Klumb, Gmeiner, Vande nberg, Benton . . .

High Idealists 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 Barbara Carlson, Bette Rogers, Alice Ann Hammer, Helen Farrand, Marilyn lens, Ann Hauert, Marion Schulze, leanne Gallaher, leanie Wheeler, loAnn Riedl, and Donna Travers. Page 72 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 quilting bees tor the Red Cross were held in the Early American Room and proved to be a lot of tun. Mothers and daughters were royally enter- tained at a tea in the Early American Room one evening in March in order to introduce the mothers to the lite ot a Girl Reservist. Again in the spring, a new group ot sopho- mores and juniors were inducted into the club, and last but not least, the junior members bade the seniors tarewell at the traditional farewell party. Betty Shimek, lean Flanigan, and Audrey Young have learned to make their own clothes. The clothing classes have learned to conserve by remaking clothes and have served by making Red Cross afqhans. Classes The aviation science class has been an innovation in the curriculum. Some ct the members ot the class, Carl Neid- hold, Gordon Lillqe, Lyle Hoett, Dave Van Rossum, Lee Lemke, Roger LaMay, lames Olson, Frank Diehn, and Wesley Courtcis, gather around Mr. Cameron while he explains the function of an airplane engine. vocabularies.

Page 86 Seniors 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 Risse. 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.

Gloria Enger, the winner ot this year's award, has been outstanding throughout her three years. She has been active in Curtain Call, declarnation, Girl Reserves, Latin club, and Quill and Scroll. She also was executive editor ot the TALISMAN, had one ot the leads in the senior class play, and was a delegate to Badger Girls State, and elected to the National Honor Society. For all her service and many worthwhile activities Gloria has received this highest award. Gloria is pictured in three of her many activities: in the declamatory recital, as editor of the newspaper, and as the lead in the senior class play.

It is the most desirable finis that one can write to a high school career. The members of this national society are selected on the basis of their scholarship, character, leader- ship and service to the school. In this selection, the three year record ot the candidate is considered Commencement speakers: Gloria Enger, Bill Younger, Kathryn Cavanaugh, Richard Goree. Page 112 and the final decision is made only after the most careful scrutiny of each student's record has been completed. Each student must have proven in some way that he has contributed materially to the welfare of the school and the community in which he has lived. This year's National Honor Society members may indeed cherish the emblem of their achieve- ment, for the grade average of the class of 1943 was considerably higher than for several previous years. This fact made competition much greaterg thus the award is more valuable than it has ever been. This year for the first time the award was made to a student who was not present at the ceremony. The award was made to Ralph De- Decker who had left to join the Army Air Corps. Commencement Speakers Four seniors who are in the top part of their class are chosen each year as commencement speakers. They discuss a current topic before the audience on the night of graduation. This year the speakers were Gloria Enger, Kathryn Cavanaugh, William Younger, and Richard Goree. Their speeches were based on the four freedoms. Gloria spoke on "Freedom of Wor- ship," Kathryn Cavanaugh's topic was "Free- dom ot Speech," William Younger spoke on "Freedom trom Want," and Richard Goree discussed "Freedom from Fear." All the speak- ers are members of the National l-lonor Society and have been very active in many organiza- tions. Science Award The Bausch and Lomb honorary science trophy was awarded this year to Helmut Krueger in recognition ot his superior ability in high school science. Helmut has taken biology, chem- istry, and physics and has distinguished himselt by outstanding accomplishments in each.
