The Curtain Parts-revealing against a
backdrop of Appleton High School the activities
of the players-students and faculty. For three
full years the drama continues until even the
lowliest sophomore reaches the climax- gradus
ln the following pages we have tried to
portray for you a cross-section of life in our high
schooleits gay moments and serious. The ac-
tivities have fallen naturally into three actsw
organizations, athletics, and events. There are
stars and outstanding players, but everyone
down to the bit players and stagehands are
essential for a good production. Enough of this
On With the Play.

As we, the seniors, pass down the aisles
of the auditorium, memories of the past
year pass in review. First there were those
warm fall days when all were gathered at
Whiting Field to see our boys carry that
pigskin down the thoroughfare. Then
measurements for caps and gowns, and
ordering announcements were two big
The coming of cold weather and snow
brought Friday night basketball games
and dances or a jaunt to the "Terrors'
Den," high school youth center. We recall
senior assemblies and student council
dances, Easter vacation and spring when
seniors' fancies turned to thoughts of final
exams soon to come. "And Came the
Spring"-teen age, romantic fantasy marked
the senior class play, and lastly appeared
the senior vaudeville when many seniors
took last curtain call at A.H.S.
As we finally reach the last steps to the
stage, clad in our caps and gowns, many
empty seats remind us of senior class-
mates who left for service during the
course of the year.
Bobby socks, plaid shirts return in full swing
for another year. Among the array of sport
clothes we find the seniors coming through
for the last round. All those fond memories
behind will be wound up in one night, when
strains of Pomp and Circumstance can be
heard, and caps and gowns donned.

Olympia Tri-Y '
Olympia Tri-Y under the capable leadership of Mrs. Hagene, meets every Wednesday of the school
year at the Terrors Den. Discussions at their meetings include the sponsorship of dances at KP. and parties
at the Den, and service work. Ardice Witt, president of the Olympia's, ably presides over their meetings.
The Mercury Hi-Y of basketball fame holds weekly meetings which are ably handled by Dick Schmidt.
At these get-togethers they talk over projects and air opinions.
The mighty Foxes, whose meetings were presided over during the first part of the year by Glen Kirch-
ner, and during the last semester by the newly elected president Norm Wassman, get together every Wednes-
day at the Y. Discussions include sponsorship of social affairs and timely subjects.

S C The Great Middle Class
6 '52 A 5
The class of '46 was nobly repre-
sented in debate-declam-student
councilqand such dramatic pro-
ductions as Why the Chimes Rang
and others . . . Many of us sport a
flaming HA" on royal blue sweaters
representing hard work and perse-
verance . . . We produced the zany
Zephyrs, tenacious Trojans, spirited
Stags, and also the Spartan Tri-Y . . .
We dominated the "Den" while
cramming for chemistry, slaving
over Spanish, or griping about Ger-
man . . . We were found giving vent
to our feelings while kicking at the
KP. or-in the case of the males-
gaping at the gals . . . Yes, it has
been fun to "lord" it over the sophs
and look at the temporary seniors,
knowing that they must soon go
while we have another glorious year
Between the silly sophs and the sophisticated
seniors . . . the class that never does anything
. . . except study Cwhat are we saying?l . . .
Regardless of reputation you will find our
worthy contributions recorded in the annals
of Appleton High School history.

We really took advantage
of the soph talent show which
ranged from "Silly sunnies"
Bethke, Shiff and Kepler to
some eye-filling numbers of
music and beauty, all led by
M.C's Tony Kuehmsted and
Not only on the stage, but
also on the playing field, we
sophs promise a bright future
with such muscle men as
Bruce Nelson and Bill Karras
on the gridiron, lack Schom-
mer and Luther Rogers shin-
ing in basketball, while the
class of '47 holds its own in
track. ln the classroom we
have shown our ability to
reason and concentrate as
well as our predecessors.
Digging into school work,
making new friends, joining
extra-curriculars, and taking
on responsibilities kept us
whirling all yearg but we are
looking forward to another
two years to prove our worth.
"It's so big!" "There are so many kids!"
"Oh, I'm lost!" These are the expressions
heard by bystanders in A.H.S. on the
first day of school last September. Who
said it? Not the seniors, not the juniors,
but the sophomores. We innocent babes
in arms who came to A.H.S. humble and
retiring and will leave like seasoned vet-

The meetings of the rising Badgers are held every Tuesday during the school year at the Terror's Den.
The Badgers under the leadership of Howard Ruth elected two sets of officers this year. Basketball, dances
at K. P. and parties at the Den were among their many activities.
The ambitious Tritons hold their meetings every Tuesday during the school year. These meetings are
presided over by the president of the Tri-Y, Phyllis Avery. The meetings are started by the repeating of
the Tri-Y purpose which is "To help maintain and extend throughout homes, school, and community high
standards of Christian character,"
Sponsoring dances at K. P., parties at the Den, Red Cross work, making scrap books for servicemen,
and fixing up toys for the needy at Christmas time were among their many activities and their first year
as an organization in our community ended successfully.

September to represent each Home Room for the school year, acts as an intermediary between the students
and the administration. Councilors aid in making school laws and upholding old traditions. In an adminis-
trative capacity they intermittently schedule student assemblies and supervise dances. At the beginning of
each school term they turn out a hand-
book for orientation purposes in the
home room and sponsor "get acquainted"
teas for newcomers to Appleton High
School. Not the least of their problems is
the collection of fees for the finance plan.
In their meetings they discuss propo-

and the administration deem best for us.

Under the new name of S.P.Q.R., meaning The Senate and the Roman People, the Latin Club held
its meetings on the first and third Thursday of every month. Some of these meetings were of special sig-
nificance, as has been the custom for many years in the past. The first of these was the initiation of new
members, which started the year in full glory. The Christmas party, patterned after the Roman l'Saturnalia,"
proved interesting from the beginning to the end. ln accordance with the Roman custom of having a slave
rule for one day, lohn Hockings, a sophomore, was chosen "King for a Day." Taking advantage of his
privileges, he had everyone doing his bidding. He ordered people to entertain him and even ordered the
teachers not to give us any homework over the vacation, and
they obeyed. Also during the Christmas season, the club par-
ticipated in the high school radio program. They sang familiar
Christmas carols and songs in Latin. The songs were: UAdeste
Fidelisf' a very noted carol in Latin, UFairest Lord lesus," and
'lloy to the World."
On March l5, an Open House for the mothers was held.
A short patriotic skit was presented, and as a background a
small group sang four songs in Latin, including 'lAmerica,"
'lGod Bless America," 'Battle Hymn of the Republic," and
"America the Beautiful." Later in the year a party was given
in honor of a select few from the ninth grades. The students
were selected by their teachers according to their scholastic
standings. The last party of the year was the Senior Farewell,
which was a really happy and successful ending to a prosper-

"Siempre Amigos," meaning "always friends," is the motto of the Spanish Club which is sponsored
by the Spanish instructor, Miss Patricia Kelly. The foremost interest of this group is the study of Spain and
the South American countries from the standpoint of history, culture and national characteristics. At its
meetings, the Spanish Club enjoys discussion and films on the Cabellero countries or listens to speakers
who have come into direct contact with such environments. President of the club is Eugene Pietteg vice-
president, William Knapp, secretary, Virginia Schrimpfg and treasurer, Violet Franzke.
Membership of the club is recruited from the Spanish classes. At the end of each first semester, initi-
ation takes place. individuals in order to be eligible for membership must have an M at the end of the
half year of work.
The Spanish Club has two meetings per month. On the second Monday, a business session takes place.
Social get-togethers are held on the fourth Monday of the month at the students' homes.
This school year the Spanish Club undertook the special project of contributing money and food to
several poor families of Appleton during Thanksgiving season.
An annual tradition of the organization is caroling. ln the third floor corridor and floating to the rooms
below, during the last few days before Christmas vacation, can be heard the familiar sober strains of 'Noche
de Paz," "Oh Pueblicito de Belen," and other well known Spanish carols.

"Sprechen Sie Deutsch?" You may have an opportunity to gargle guttural vowels and practice
conversing in German at the meetings of the business-like yet gay Appleton High School German Club.
Everything happens at such gatherings, assembled at the home of one of the members. lf it's initiation night,
the neophytes will struggle through a play, probably based on a fairy tale like "Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs." On other occasions advanced students present drama of the more dignified sort. Cn the programs
appear topics and films on German life and customs or on Germany in the present conflict and in the post-
war world, a talk and demonstration on the education of the deaf. Of course there are songs-f -l'Schnitzel-
bank," "Die Lorelie" and "Ach du Lieber Augustine."
During the Christmas season the German club carols in the corridors of the school. A special project
financed by contributions from German classes and club members is the preparation of baskets for desti-
tute families in Appleton.
Each year one of the senior members is elected German honor student. Qualifications for such respect
include leadership, scholarship, and service.

Nature Club is an organization open to those who are interested in plant and animal life of the great
out-of-doors. Started in l938, this club stimulates interest in nature by means of hikes, films, slides, reading,
discussion, and lectures. Among the activities of the group are the planting of trees, feeding of birds, and
care of the flower boxes and the natural history museum.
Field trips in early autumn and spring afford members an opportunity to make actual observations of
subjects about which they hear and talk. These trips are made interesting by the abundance of material at
hand. Readily found in this section of the country is an unbroken chain of plant life from the simplest forms
of algae and lichens through ferns and flowering plants. Hikers learn easily to recognize varieties of plenti-
ful or nearly extinct wild flowers and to use their influence to preserve these. Another delightful aspect of
such journeys is the acquaintance made with the birds which no longer remain birds but well-known friends
called by their first names. lt is easy to become intensely interested in their songs, habits, nests, and migra-
tions. These harbingers of good cheer become recognized both by their songs and appearance.
The club's museum curators and classifiers of specimens for club and classroom use, Lyle Pollard and
Bill Sack, have this school year assembled a varied collection of deep sea life, a gift of an alumnus, Herbert
Karrow, who is in the Coast Guard.
Not to be forgotten among the Nature Club's

"Commercialites to Prepare Basket for Needy Family" or "Business Group Sponsors Printing
of Homecoming Programs" are headlines frequently found in the paper about one of the most industrious
organizations in A. H. S. -the Commercial club. Membership in the group, which has as its chief purpose
the promotion of a better knowledge and understanding of the business world, is open to all seniors who
major in commercial work and have satisfactory grades.
Prompted by functions of other clubs mentioned in a shorthand magazine, "The Gregg Writer," the
club was organized in 1934. At present there are six officers of the club president, Almita Sousekg vice
prexy, loan Van Rooyg secretary, Shirley Meyer, treasurer, Rita Huhng reporter, Lois Balzag and historian,
Ever since the first year of its organization, the club has done charity work. lt chooses one particular
family and helps it at Thanksgiving and Christmas time. Besides this yearly project and that of assuming
the responsibility of printing programs for the Homecoming game, the club this year had charge of ticket
sales for the Kryl AllfGirl Symphony Qrchestra, which gave a concert-lyceum in the high school audi-
torium in fall, and entered a novel walking-float in the Homecoming parade under the banner "Bowl 'Em
Qverf' Another animal custom is the spring picnic given for the group by the junior commercial majors a
few weeks after their initiation into the club.
Two meetings are held each month a business meeting on the second Monday and a social gathering
at the home of a member on the fourth Monday. A guest speaker, usually a well-known business man or
woman from the city, often addresses the members of the club at the social meetings, A sleighride, a Christ-
mas party attended by Santa himself, who distributed gifts, and the participation in a broadcast of the Com-
mercial department on the "High School of the Air" series kept the club well occupied during the '44345

The Appleton High School Band precise in its playing, infectious in spirit and colorful in uniform
is one of the school's most active organizations. lt inspires and lends a harmonious atmosphere to homo
basketball and football games, to pep sessions and to the annual homecoming parade.
Cn the concert stage, the group consisting of sixty-five members under the direction of Mr. E. C.
Moore artistically performs such compositions as Fauchet's "Symphony in Bb," Flatow's "Stradella Qvor-
ture," Bennetts "Rhythms of Rio," Newell's Hlimerican Rhapsody" or Strauss' UTales from the Vienna
Woods." This season's schedule included appearances before the noon luncheon clubs, on a Lawrence Col-
lege convocation program, at junior high school assemblies and for specially sponsored band concerts to
which the general public was invited. Annually, the band has participated in district music festivals. How-
ever, due to war conditions such activities were temporarily suspended by the Wisconsin School Music
Association. The band is more than just a high school ensembleg it is a civic institution.

Choral activities at Appleton High School center in the Chorus and the Girls' Glee Club. The former
organization, directed by Mr. Glockzin and accompanied by Bonnie Riehl, regularly schedules several
assembly programs at the junior high schools and senior high school, as well as public concerts and appear-
ances before local service clubs.
Ninety-five voices make up the Chorus, which practices daily the second period. Melodious strains of
harmony drift to the upper floors to inspire students engrossed in Latin, English, and art. Humming groups
of students still caught in the spirit of the vivacious melodies can be glimpsed pouring out of the music
section every morning.
lnterpreting beautiful choral works entails more than a mere cursory reading. Exact rhythm, correct
pitch and phrasing, pure and uniform pronunciation of vowels, balance of parts, emphasis, intonation and
expression, plus a spirited vitality, comprise not the least of the study of this choral group. As a result boom-
ing basses, lyric sopranos, mellow altos, and soaring tenors become blended into a harmonious whole.
A part of the course in singing is devoted to voice training and music appreciation. One day a week
is set aside for listening to records, classical and modern, including the various forms of musical composition.
The Girls' Glee Club offered opportunity for feminine voices to star. This group, which is made up of

Devotees of the Dance
Guided by President Iune Robertson and advised by Miss I-Ieebink, this modern dance group, Orchesis,
swung successfully through the first semester of this year. When Iune left for Texas, Bette Rogers was elected
presidentp and Barbara Carlson, secretary and treasurer, continued to keep the money and meeting records
Much credit should be given to Iune, for she originated the idea of a Christmas program and pains-
takingly thought out many of the ideas and planned much of the work which went into the making of this
In making up the dances which were presented, the girls chose a piece of music and danced to it
according to their particular theme. For instance, the girls who danced the Chinese dolls interpreted their
music in colorful, handsomely embroidered costumes as they felt Chinese dolls would. Sixteen girls in
Navy blue shorts, white shirts, and red caps marched and lunged as they thought toy soldiers might, a
trio glided smoothly through the Skaters' Waltz. Six girls in red and green costumes and tiny Elaine Hoff-
man as a fairy queen interpreted Iingle Bells, and Elaine also portrayed the little match girl in the final,
arresting angel scene.
As soon as this program was over, plans and practices began for the annual spring program. The
underlying theme of this was the holidays. Starting with gay New Year, sentimental Valentines Day, satiric
April Fools' Day, dancing through a happy

In previous times the boys were often envied
by the weaker sex because of the athletic oppor-
tunities offered them. Now this feeling has been
practically completely dissolved due to the fact
that clubs such as the G.A.A. have been organized.
The G.A.A. offers such athletics as basketball,
volleyball, hockey, badminton, tennis, bowling, hik-
ing, biking, and swimming. They also go in for
sleigh rides, hay rides and other similar activities
which encourage friendliness and leadership among
the girls. The girls choose their own sguad leaders
in each of the sports using certain gualifications as

according to the point system. These points are given
for the participation in many of the different sports
offered by the organization. Members of the club whose points rank in the highest fifteen per cent get awards.
Play days are the highlights of the G.A.A. social season. Two play days a year are sponsored by the
club, one for the benefit of the junior high schools of our city and the other for the senior high schools of
our surrounding community. The Girls' Athletic Association contributes a service project to the school
each year. The nature of the project is decided by a vote of the organization.

Terrors of the Turf
The great god Football smiled approvingly on Appleton High School as the gridiron Terrors of '44
copped second place in the Fox Valley Conference for the second consecutive year. Under the inspiring
and capable leadership of Coach Ade Dillon and his assistant, Harold "Pete" Briese, the Terrors ended
the season with only one defeat to mar their record. The words of Coach Dillon: "We want to establish a
tradition of winning football teams at Appleton High School" urged the gridmen to feats which surprised
many of its followers and stabbed the hopes of no few Fox Valley schools.
At the beginning of the season, Appleton boasted eight returning lettermen, seven of these playing
in the line. Thus the potentiality of an experienced line and a speedy, but inexperienced backfield, gave
the Terror fans something to look forward to. Although the backfield had but one letterman, the prospective
candidates for that position were numerous. Several boys were beginning their first year of high school

football. These same soph boys had gained valuable experience from their junior high school competition.
Others, too, had come up from the "B" sguad of the previous year. This fact somewhat alleviated the back-
field trouble and increased the hopes for a winning team.
This optimistic point of view was soon given a pair of feet to stand on when the Blue and Orange eleven
defeated their non-conference rivals, St. Mary's of Menasha. lt was in this game when the loyal Appleton
fans received their first glimpse of the team in action. Because strong inter-city competitive spirit had de-
veloped between the Appleton and Menasha boys, both schools eagerly awaited the game. Although both
teams' fundamentals were ragged, the Terrors held the stronger hand and rolled over the Zephyrs by a
count of 13-7, with fullback Bob Eichinger scoring both touchdowns for the victors. This was the same score
as that of a previous year, but at that time the Terrors were on the short end of the final tally.
Spirited by this victory, the Appleton aggregation prepared for its first conference tilt-an out of town
game with Sheboygan Central. As was predicted, the Terrors lashed into their foes and didn't let up until
the final minute. Roger Brandt and Wayne Weinfurter, Appleton's speedy junior, halfbacks ran wild in this
game, dashing around end and slashing through the line for several long gains, each scoring a touchdown
on one of their distant jogs. Locklin caught a pass from Don Boya for a score and kicked two of the extra
points to give the Blue and Orange a 20-O victory over the inexperienced Central team. All of the reserves

that traveled to the game were given valuable experience as Coach Dillon substituted them quite freely.
Although Sheboygan was greatly outclassed, the spectators were given a welcome treat as Leve, Central'S
star passer, shone like a diamond in the rough by completing several long passes.
The second conference game was at home with a strong Oshkosh eleven. This was the first home game
and proved to be one of the biggest thrillers. Appleton went into a five-man line with the aim of stopping
Oshkosh's passing attack. This change of defense was successful, the visiting team failing on numerous
passing attempts. The most memorial event was a ninety yard run by Wayne Weinfurter after Brandt had
lateraled to him. This, however, was called back because the lateral was forward. ln spite of this bad break,
e errors managed to score three touchdowns to two for Oshkosh, the final score being l8-l3.
ln their second home game, Appleton ran up against the always powerful West Green Bay school.
West d' l ' ' ' '
, isp aying good downfield blocking, scored first on a long run by Buresh after Appleton punted. It
wasn't until the second half, following one of Mr. Dillon's famous pep talks, that the Terrors got down to
business and pushed over a marker. Once again the dependable place-kicking of Stu Locklin saved the
game. Appleton was behind 7-6 after they made their fourth quarter touchdown and needed the extra
point to tie the game and keep their conference standing clean. When the smoke of battle cleared the tally
was 7-7, the exact score of a year ago when West played Appleton.
The next week found an overconfident Terror team journeying to Fond du Lac. Early in the first quarter
Locklin caught a pass for Appleton's only score. From here on it wasn't even a contest. Appleton let up and
the Red Cardinals scored three touchdowns to win l9-7. The Terrors came back with a momentary threat
when Bruce Henning, fullback, intercepted a Fond du Lac pass on his own five and dashed sixt five ard

A Glorious Finale
spectacle of the game was the huge Appleton following that came to see the gridiron performance. So
enthusiastic were the Blue and Orange followers that they even brought a miniature band along.
Disheartened after their first defeat, the Orangemen grimly set about to revenge it and put the final
stitch on the homecoming celebrations. Coach Dillon gave the once-defeated Terrors a week of practice
that was many times more difficult than any they had ever endured. Nothing was omitted as the Appleton
eleven prepared for their homecoming game with North Sheboygan. After one of the best homecoming
parades in a decade, the Terrors defeated North l3-O in a sluggish but exciting and successful game.
The second last game of the year found Appleton playing their best football against East Green Bay.
East, again fielding a great team, hadn't been defeated and was riding alone on the top of the conference.
The Terrors wanted this game for a farewell present for Bob Eichinger, first string fullback, who had to
leave for the army shortly after this game. With the odds against them the Terror squad put into practical
use the long weeks of practice they had endured. Appleton's fundamentals were slightly less of excellent.
Playing before a huge following crowd Coach Dillon's charges took the upper hand and crashed the East
Red Devils 13-7. Claude Radtke, playing his first game, displayed an outstanding defensive game at end,
downing two fumbles and spilling many an East back. The rest of the team also displayed alert and "heads-
up" football-the Appleton line taking the situation in hand and stopping everything East threw its way
and the backs' running and blocking being par excellence. Eichinger climaxed an enviable career of
athletics at Appleton High School by plunging over for the winning touchdown.
Returning home for their East game, the Terrors sank the Manitowoc Ships in a 9-6 game. Although
the Blue and Orange aggregation failed on several occasions to score when they were in scoring position,
Manitowoc's score came on a long run of forty yards. Appleton had one touchdown and a safety which was
scored when Locklin blocked a punt and it went out of the end zone. This was Appleton's only safety of
the year. Bruce Henning took over the fullback spot vacated by "Ike" and performed admirably, as did the
rest of the team. This victory was exceedingly tasty to the second year men who, the preceding year, had
taken their only conference defeat from the Ships, this loss depriving the 1943 edition of the Orange and
Blue of the championship.
Although the Manitowoc victory was something to cheer about, many of the Appleton boys were sad
as they filed off the field. Seventeen of these boys were seniors, undoubtedly destined never more to don
a football suit.

And Thus They Leave
The high calibre of the coaching and talent of Appleton
was proved when three of the Terrors were given conference
recognition. Stu Locklin, junior, was placed at end of the
all-conference first team and Don Brockrnan, senior, re-
ceived center honors on the first team. Don Pawer, senior
tackle and the team's punter, was given a second team
berth at guard.
Although almost all of the glory and honor goes to the
first team, much credit must be given to the second and
third teams. The team that has the strongest "punch" at the
end of the game is usually the team that wins. Since good
reserves provide this last quarter strength, it is obvious that
they are as necessary as good regulars. Then, too, a prac-
tice session couldn't be successful without at least two teams
i to work against each other.
Thus, the 1944 football season ended in a blaze of
Don Bova blocks. glory. Each player, from the first to the last, felt in his heart
that the all-too-fast months of practice had given him some
added experience of life. This experience ranged from respect of one's opponent to the virtue of application
of one's learning.
This year's football team witnessed a decided growth of interest by the students and townspeople in
high school football. Larger crowds than ever before assembled to enjoy the gridiron contestsg and when
the team traveled to neighboring cities, the following crowd took up a large section of the bleachers. Several
times a few of the musically inclined carried along their horns and drums and formed a visiting band. Such
an exhibition of school loyalty gave the team an added effort when the going began to get tough.

The future football greats ot Appleton High School received their groundwork under the experience-
wise Mr. Cole. Again, as in past years, the "B"-squaders were out on the practice tield three times per week
learning the fundamentals ot the game. This year the Colemen played six contestsatwo each with Menasha
St. Mary's, Neenah, and Kaukauna. The percentage ot wins and losses was considerably better than that
ot a year ago.
The series with St. Mary's was somewhat an event. Three quarters ot the tirst home game were played
in a virtual downpour. The game finally had to be called ott and played the next week. Up to the third
quarter ot the untinished game, the score remained a dead-lock at O-O, however the Appleton boys topped
the Zephyrs' "Bee" 7-6 in the replay. The other game ot the series ended with Cole's charges holding the
upper hand by a 6-O count.
After such close contests, the junior Terrors tound an easy match when they played Neenah. The
"B" squad gave the Neenah "B's" a pair ot trimmings, defeating them in the tirst game 28-6. ln both ot
these games Coach Cole tound many reasons to be pleased. The blocking and tackling ot his players were
sharp and ettective.
The twin bill with Kaukauna bore a truit not quite so tasty. Because Kaukauna didn't have a UB" squad,
the Blue and Grange "B's" had to play the second and third
strings ot their opponents varsity. This proved too much tor
their ability, and the Terrors were downed 2l-O in the first game
and l3-7 in the last contest.
As usual the B squad crashes through
for a touchdown.

Valley Champs for 44-45! The Terrors smash Manitowoc, 39-3l! They capture the Valley
crown for Appleton, the first time in eleven years. With a record of twelve wins and only two losses
in conference play, the Grangemen swept through the second round of the season without dropping a
game. They took special satisfaction in beating Manitowoc in the final game of the season, as the Ships
were the chief rivals of the Terrors in the race for the title.
Coach Seims was blessed this season with a smooth-passing, hard-fighting club that didn't want to be
beaten by anyone. True, they had several bad nights, but they always came back fighting in the following
The starting Terror squad was built around three lettermen: Captain Norm Wassman and Dan Steger,
forwards, and Stu Locklin, center. Dick Boya and Roger Brandt, excellent floor men, capably held down
the guard posts. Of these five players, Locklin was the third high scorer in the loop and all-conference,
center, Steger and Boya made the second team of the conference pickings, and Wassman and Brandt were
given honorable mention. Dan received recognition for his outstanding rebound work and team play, and
Dick Boya was acclaimed as the best floor man in the league. Since the whole sguad was composed of
seniors, with the exception of Stu Locklin and Roger Brandt, next year's defending champions will have
to come through with plenty of class to match the record set by this year's Orange and Blue cagers.
ln a review of the season, the class and ability of the Terrors show up clearly.
ln the opening game of the season, things didn't go too well for the Terrors. Playing on the Kau's home
floor, the Grangemen just couldn't do a thing right, and came out on the short end of a 29 to 24 score.
lmproving greatly the next week and playing before a much larger crowd, the Terrors squeezed a
victory out of Neenah 32 to 31. Dick Boya's floor play was exceptional in this game, and his exchange of
long shots with Darrel Schultz, Neenah guard, will long be remembered.
FOX VALLEY CONFERENCE GAMES
Fond du Lac
ln Appleton's tirst conterence game, Stu Locklin showed he was headed tor an All-Cfoiiletwnrre islol.
While his mates were having hard luck at the hoop, Stu dumped in ll buckets and 2 tree throws lor a 24
point total. The Terrors had the stutl to keep punching and came through with a 30 to 28 win. ln the faecfoncl
round home game, the Terrors had an oiinight. The boys just couldn't hit the hoop, Fortunately the Foncly
lads were colder on the rim than were the Terrors and could score only 17 points to our 28.
The Terrors met their second conference toe at Sheboygan North. Greatly improved over the preced-
ing week, the Orangemen began to roll in the second halt and beat the Raiders, 28 to Ql.
On the Appleton iloor the boys showed who was boss as they drubbed the North Qllltliti, Q27 to Lltl.
The Urangemen were unable to hit the hoop during the tirst halt, but in the third and fourth giiai'ter'1:, they
rolled up enough points to win.
East Green Bay
ln the lirst game with the Red Devils, nothing seemed right lor Seims' cagers. Thr- Lil'lt'lli1t'Lll1illil work,
and all ot the boys seemed to have lost their "shooting eye." The Terrors dropped the gamr- 263 to lfi, tall'
ing into second place as a consequence. At East, the story was nearly repeated, but the CDl'clllfjf'IIIt'Il began
to rally in the tourth guarter and smashed East, 37 to 28. Stu Locklin and Dick Boya lcd thc- scoring spurt
early in the tourth period and kept it going the rest ot the game.
The lndians provided the Appleton crowd with one ot the year's most thrilling games. With the two
teams nip and tuck all the way, it was in the tinal tew seconds that Dick Boya dropped in a tree throw tor
a Terror win, 31-30. At Qshkosh the Terrors played their best ball ot the year and smashed the indians,
49 to 35. Stu led the attack with 19 points, and Boya's tloor play stood out again.
Green Bay West
Another thriller, at West, was won by the Terrors with a one point margin, 26 to 25. A hot game all
the way, the winning point came when Captain Wassman sank a tree throw which had been granted on a
technical foul. On the home floor, the Qrangemen showed us little doubt ot who was master, downing
West, 36 to 27.
The Central games provided two ot the toughest, closest, and hardest played games that the Terrors
experienced. At Appleton, it took the Terrors two overtimes before they downed the Central men 44 to 40.
As our Soykfgiocklin takes a shot, "Goofy" Wassman eyes the ball and Boya . . . Telling stories, boys? . . . May we have the next

At Central, the thrill story was repeated, minus the ovortimes. Staying ott a late rally by the Sheboygan
sguad, the 'terrors held on to a two point margin long enough to win 39 to 37. Norm Weissinqiii led the
attack until ho lolt the game in the third quarter.
'lwho 'llerrors dropped the lirst game to the Ships, 42 to 40, on what is called the "touch net" rule. When
Stn l.oc'klin went up tor a Manty rebound, he touched the Manitowoc net, and the referees awarded the
basket, and consequently the game, to the Ships.
At home, playing betore a crowd ot 2,300 spectators, the Terrors tought hard in the tirst halt but couldn't
keep up with the Ships. Behind at the start ot the second halt, the Terrors began to roll when Dick Boya
went the lull length ot the tloor tor a basket. Alter that there was just no stopping the boys in Blue and
Orange, and they took the Ships 39 to 31, along with the Conference Championship. During the game,
Dan Stoger showed excellent work on rebounds, and Dick Boya demonstrated a magnificent tloor game
as lie ttribblect around tho entire Manitowoc team to score several baskets.

The Rough Riders
Coach Brie-se, Dresang, Ketchum, I. Schommer, White, Lundstrom, P. Schommer,
Weinfurter, LaFond, Sheehy, Gerhartz, Coach Seims.
The 44-45 Jayvees played well through most of the season and finished with
the record of 9 wins and 4 losses. Hindered somewhat by the lack of trans-
portation, the Bees traveled to Kaukauna, Menasha, Sheboygan Central, West
Green Bay, and Oshkosh.
lt was at Qshkosh that the Bees acquired the name "Rough Riders." Soon
after the game started, it developed into a combination of football and mass
wrestling. After the game Coach Briese, who did an excellent job of handling
the boys bestowed the title, "Rough Riders," on his crew.
Due to the difficulty of travel, no games were played with 3 of the confer-
ence B sguads. The highlight of the season came for the Bees on the same night
that the Varsity Terrors won the Valley crown from Manitowoc. The Bees at
gaged the Freedom Varsity, co-champs of the Little Nine, and came away on
the best end of a 38 to 25 score. This game marked the last appearance for

occupied with fast, spirited games of touch-

and tumbling. The fairer sex also
indulged in sguare dancing, a
more graceful form of exercise.
During the winter the boys had
many things to keep them busy.
They had their usual toughening-
up exercises at the beginning of
their classes, and then they entered
into games of volleyball, basketball,
and handball. For a few weeks
tumbling and workouts on tho

lt you had dropped into the gym on a Monday night, you wouldn't have seen "The Man on the Flying
Trapeze," but certainly some reasonable facsimiles. The Tumbling Club, which is co-educational, is under
the guidance ot Mr. David Black.
The club starts its activities at the beginning ot the winter months and extends through to the spring.
For some ot us the only chance to see these athletes at work is at the halves ot basketball games. They work
hard to put on exhibitions, and you can always hear ah-ing and oh-ing by the students at some daring stunt.
The stunts done on the rings are ot college caliber. With the coordination and agility ot Al Fisher, Bob
Robinson, Tom Orbison and Bernard Engmann, the sophomores have advanced quickly. One promising soph-
omore is Don Greb. This year the sophomores in the club are hard working and the most promising of any year.
The interest in the club, the purchase ot insignia, and hard working spirit are representative of the

One motto you might hear from a tumbler is
"l'd rather tumble than eat." Coach Black, a really

The 1945 track team of Appleton High School really showed its mighty power by copping its first six
meets by a very high margin.
The track team this year suffered with the loss of men like Paul Nelson and Don Brockman, but we still
found a great amount of power in men like Roger Brandt, Captain Les Ulman, Tom Lundstrom, and Stu
The Terror thin-clads broke all kinds of Appleton
High School records. Records that were broken were
the 200 and 100 yard dashes, both were broken by
the versatile Roger Brandt. His time for tne new school record
for the 200 yard dash was 20.1 seconds. This topped the
state record by three tenths of a second. His time in the 100
yard dash was 10.1. Bruce Henning set a new school record
for the 100 high hurdles in 15.4 seconds and the 200 yard
low hurdles in 23.9 seconds. Wayne Weinfurter shattered
the 440 yard dash state record.
One of the Terrors' best days was in their meet with
Green Bay West when the Appleton boys set five new records.
All in all this year's track team should be one of the best the
Fox Valley Conference has ever seen. They have one of the
strongest teams in all events that Appleton High School has
had in many years.
Looking back at the results of the last six meets of the
Terror track team of '45,' we see that the boys have won all
of their meets by large margins.
The track team crashed through to capture the Fox

Along with the awakening of spring comes the beginning of the tennis season. Although the weather
with its wind and rain this year was anything but good weather for playing tennis, the sguad got off to an
early start in its practice.
Clad in their new gray sweatsuits, the Terror netsters were soon out on the tennis courts every night
working hard to get in shape for the opening match of the season. In the game of tennis it is necessary to
have strong legs as well as to be able to hit the ball over the netg so often the netmen could be seen taking
a few laps around the track.
This season was Coach Dillon's third year at the helm of the tennis sguad. The squad was led by the
only returning letter man, Captain Ray Schultz, and by hard hitting Phil Schommer. The rest of the players
who rounded out the sguad were: Bill
Knapp, a steady playerg placement hit-

has improved greatly since the begin-

The tennis team was faced with a
heavy schedule this year. Although the
first few meets were called off because
of rain, the schedule finally got under-
way with an average of about two matches
per week. The squad lost guite a few of
its matches, but the players were always
in there fighting and many of the matches
were more closely contested than their
scores indicated. With the conference
meet coming up the sguad will be ready
to send its best men to the meet to bring
back some of the titles which Terror net-

On the more humorous side was comedy iuggler, George De Mott, presenting an eye-catching exhi-
bition ot triclqs. Former secretary to Chiang Kai Shek, Colonel Tchou, gave a glowing speech on what
China means to us as an Ally. 'Pinging in the Groom" was one ot the many plays Curtain Call presented
to us this year. Two ol the comedy plays which were greatly appreciated by the audience were "The Bracelet
ol Doom" and the "The Strange Hathaway Murder." These were combined mystery and comedy plays.
More serious but egually as ettective was the Christmas play l'Why the Chimes Rang."
Topping all the season's plays was 'iAnd Comes the Spring," presented by the senior class. Eleanor
Sickes Peters lascinated the audience with the excerpts from famous plays in a program entitled, "The
Will ol the People."
Community singing would have taken tirst place in a popularity vote with the pep sessions tollowing

the rugged Terror team came through with a l3-O victory. Music filled the gym all evening for the student council dance and every

The annual Christmas program was sponsored jointly for the first time this year by the orchestra, chorus,
and drama department. This program was given on a Sunday afternoon in the Appleton High School audi-
torium tor the general public and again several days later for the high school student body.

Bob Robinson and Katherine Koerner are
ti part of the crew that built the set for the
Christmas songs which concluded its portion of the program.
ln the vocal part of the program three groups participated. To
begin this section of the program a tenor solo, Hlesus of Nazareth,"
was sung by Raleigh Williams. Following this the newly formed
A.D.O.U. club sang two carols.
The Girls' Glee Club opened with a patriotic number, "My
Qwn United States," and then sang four more patriotic and religious
songs. Next the mixed chorus sang various Christmas carols. Ac-
companied by the chorus, Pat Ryan sang a solo, "Lost in the Night,"
All of these choral groups were under the direction of Mr. A. A.
"Why the Chimes Rang" was the name of the short play put on
by the drama department. The scene of the play was in a peasant
hut at the edge of a forest near a cathedral town. lt was on a Christ-
mas night many years ago, and people from all around were bring-
ing gifts in hopes of ringing the chimes for the offering of the perfect
gift. After many rich people had offered their gifts to no avail, a
poor little girl came up and rang the chimes with her gift of a few

Fentnor's selection was "The Snow Goose," a story
of the Dunkirk invasion, while lean Gallaher inter-
preted the thoughts of four flyers' wives in her
selection, llWomen Who Wait." A cutting from the
uproarious farce, 'llunior Miss," was given by loyce
Tacobsong and the heart-stirring story of a convict at
his mother's deathbed was told by Bob Nolan in his
selection, 'lAnother Spring."
Debate is a forensic activity in progress during
the autumn and winter months at Appleton High
School. This season's squad was comprised of
sixteen members, all classes being represented. The
question for the argumentation was "Resolved:
That the legal voting age be reduced to eighteen
years." After a period of research, briefing, in-
formal debating and intensive work on rebuttals,
the affirmative and negative teams met squads from
New London, Clintonville, Neenah, and Kaukauna.
A miniature debate was also given over WHBY as
part of the "Appleton High School on the Air"
series. Advisers of debate were Mrs. Marlyn Olson

lt's love! Alice Hammer and Bob Nolan are giving lessons in handholding, and it doesn't seem Rita Olson and Audrey Schmid approve.
Once again the senior class play proved a success. This year's comedy, "And Came the Spring"
was about the gay, carefree and sometimes complicated lives of high school students. The Hartman family
was the center of interest. Teff Hartman, the father, played by lim Oliver, had difficulty understanding his
wild children. Audrey Schmid's job as the mother was to console the confused Mr. Hartman and to interpret
his children for him. ln the family were three unusual children: Midge, Marilyn lens, who loved- people,
especially Buzz Lindsay, but when trying to help them, she caused only trouble, Elliott, the only intelligent
one in the family Cso he thoughtj and the abused one, was Paul Dohr, to complete the family circle, Rita
Olson played the part of Virginia, the beauty of the family.
The first act opened with everyone hustling about, preparing for Virginia's houseguest, Carolyn Webster
CAlice Hammerl an "artificial flat-faced glamor girl." But, no, Carolyn was Wise and stayed on the right
side of the law. The "Face" proved to be a menace to the three children for she tried to get Virginia's heart-
throb, Keith Martin fBob Nolanl, and even the bookworm Elliott to fall for her charm.
Midge was faced with two problems: first she had to find a job for Buzz so he could buy a clarinet, second,
she had to get Keith to take Virginia instead of Carolyn to the spring prom. Together with her friends Gabby
Uoyce Tacobsonl and Freddie CDon Kuesterl Midge thought of some blackmail. By making use of her trusty
camera, by taking club money belonging to Christine Meyer Uanice Garveyl, Midge succeeded in con-
vincing Clancy and Edna, the gardner and maid, who were played by lim Campbell and Peg Schneider,
to elope, and succeeded in buying the clarinet. Buzz worked for Mr. and Mrs. Field, Nick Schaefer and
Tean Gallaher, but they were dissatisfied with his effort. Alan Fields CBill Knappl persuaded his parents to
have pity on the new gardener. All the problems were solved, and the girls went to the spring prom.
