As you, the members of any graduating class, begin your venturesome journey along uncharted trails, most of you will be leaving the halls of formal learning for good. Perhaps no other years will leave a stronger or more lasting impression upon your lives than those you spent in high school. Here your latent skills and budding attitudes began to flower. Here you practiced daily applications of neighborliness, friendliness, and brother- hood. Here you learned to plan, work, play, and live with others of differing races, creeds, colors, social and economic status. Here, at high school, you can truly be a good American, a co-operator with good will- towards allwthe true essence of democratic living. As you leave these hallowed halls you will have to face life's tests fearlessly and success- fully. Your very existence and that of our beloved land may depend upon how you will meet those tests. T As this issue of the 1948 CLARION embraces the record of your significant school experi- ences of the year now closing, so your three years as student should embody a rich heritage which you have acquired. May the memories of your life at Appleton High School always serve you as personal inspirations, as stimuli to greater individual achievements, as challenges to greater service to humanity, and as fuller measures of happiness.

Wisconsin is perhaps noted for its modern agricultural methods and ideals more than anything else, it has been a pioneer in the soil conservation program by introducing crop rotation to even the most .secluded farms. Dairy and malt products, corn and wheat, apples, cherries, tobacco, and hemp are a few of the various crops. The organization of farm forums and 4H clubs has helped to educate the farm population to the ever changing theory of agri- culture. The industrial progress of Wisconsin has given her good cause to hold her head high. Paper products, machinery, modernized farm equipment, and iron and steel products are all manufactured abundantly. Her factories were highly praised for their outstanding activity in wartime production. She rates as one of the best vacationlands of the nation, her. North woods, thousands of sparkling lakes and streams, and general scenic beauty are visited by hundreds of tourists every summer. Many of the famous H1611 of the world have hailed from this, our native state. Some of the more commonly known are Hamlin Garland, writer, Robert M. LaFollette, statesman, William CBillyD Mitchell, soldier, Christopher Latham Sholes, inventor, and Frank Lloyd Wright, architect. ln the field of music whose songs could be more loved than those of Carrie Jacobs Bond, Dr. William S. Pitts, Eben E. Rexford, and Charles K. Harris? Yes, many of us have forgotten, have taken our many blessings for granted. Let us remember as we celebrate this centennial year to renew our admiration, our gratitude, and our interest, let us strive to make the future of this mighty state, which we so humbly hold in our hearts, a future of which we may always be proud. awk li f fill' i f 4' 5 3 lvl f . 5- V W1 5 fl V r- fi., - IIN jydfv' f fail.-luunfv f..

School life isn't just a merry-go-round'----it'snot just an up and down ride in 21 contmuous Circle. A look at some of the following informals will prove that We work as Well as play. So turn the page and look atvyourself. Standing: Mr. Hannagan, Mr. Weber, Mr. Schaefer, Mr. Albrecht, Mr. Manng seated: Mr. Wilkinson, Mrs. Hagen, Dr. Benton, Mrs. Troyer. Mr. P. Mann Superintendent of Schools Mr. John P. Mann, as superintendent of schools, coordinates the activities of the entire Appleton Public School system. His task is no small one and it requires the full time efforts of a capable Worker to keep our school system running systematically. P r 1 n c 1 p al The respected leader of school activities, Mr. Herbert H. Helble has guided A.H.S. through another profit- able year. His ideas regarding our education and as Well as his activities as our principal are well outlined by the same single word which is the motto of our stated Forward. Page 8 Board of Education These are the civic-minded citizens who set"the policies for the Centennial Fair of Appleton High School. Some of the various duties of the Appleton Board of Education include the selecting of teachers, making recommendations for finances, and choosing the curriculum. By their diligent efforts the problem of the ever-increasing number of students is ably handled. The members give freely of their time and energy to see that the youth of Appleton have an adequate guidance program. Attending contests of basketball and football in the athletic arena is a vvell-earned reward for the hard-working leaders of the Appleton school system. Let us, the recipients of this great effort, appreciate the thought and work put forth by our school board. Mr. H. H. Helble Administration DEAN OF GIRLY Guiding each girl in school is the biggest problem for Miss Marie Port, dean of girls. Her oflice is the mecca for any girl with a question or a problem. Be- sides lending a helping hand to everyone, Miss Port is a faculty adviser for the Student Council and assists them with all their functions. In her first year at Appleton High School she has won the hearts of all and amazed everyone with her boundless energy and enthusiasm. LIBRARIANS lt is no easy task to administer efficiently a library as large and as busy as that of A.H.S. As we know, Miss Ruth Mielke and Miss Ethelwyn Baerwaldt have successfully accomplished that job. Moreover they are always willing to help any student, whether a sopho- more getting acquainted with the library or a senior who has forgotten his way around, to find the right book or magazine for reference work or just enjoyable reading. Miss Port Mr. Witte ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL Besides acting as assistant principal Mr. Werner Witte is also the dean of boys. Always available for consultation, he is busy at every hour of the day planning someone's program or advising some boy about a job. The many intricacies of the oflice ad- ministration are dealt with swiftly and efficiently by him. Mr. Witte also teaches psychology and sociology in the social science department and acts as the manager for the whole athletic department. OFFICE GIRLS Seeing that the wheels of the office turn smoothly is the job ably performed by Miss Mildred Nussbaum and Mrs. Richard Gruentzel, who was succeeded at the semester by Miss Marion Belongea. Their duties, which are many and varied, include keeping atten- dance records, bookkeeping, typing, and general office work. Greeting all questions with a smile is the diffi- cult task so well accomplished by the ofiice girls.

ENGLISH DEPARTMENT A thorough preparation in the mechanics of reading, writing, and speaking, as well as the acquisition of an appreciation in the best of American and English literature, by every graduate of Appleton High School is the lofty aim of the English department. In his sophomore and junior year the student is encouraged to read widely and with discrimination of the classics and more modern books through the free-reading system. Even though much has been added to enrich the English curriculum, the fundamentals have not been neglected. Each student is required to take two years of English in high school, but when he is a senior the course is elective. He may have his choice between college preparatory English, which is a thor- ough review of English grammar and a survey of Eng- lish literature, or non-college English, which is less for- mal work in English usage and current literature. This program should provide a basis for any student to be able to know what to read and then to choose the worthwhile material out of what he has read. LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT The study of Latin, German, or Spanish provides much more than just a reading or even a speaking knowledge of these languages. Everyone learns some- thing of the customs of these countries as well as the famous people and works of literature which those countries produced. Foreign origins of English words, Language as a tool of thought, reading foreign news- papers and hearing outstanding foreign language re- cordings receive the greatest amount of attention of the language students. SCIENCE DEPARTMENT Science-the study of how and why things in the world about us act as they do under certain conditions -encourages the student to think for himself and to reach conclusions from his own observations. In biology he learns the intricacies of the human body, the animal and plant world. In chemistry class he is concerned with the permanent changes matter under- goes, and in physics with heat, light, sound, electricity, and mechanics.

SOCIAL STUDIES DEPARTMENT It is through the economics, political science, world and American histories, psychology and sociology classes that the social studies department reaches the student and acquaints him with the problems of the dav. In addition to understanding political, economic, cultural, and social problems of today and of the past, the student learns to know himself and the traditions and backgrounds which affect the conditions under which he lives. Films and transcriptions are invalua- ble aids for producing these results, showing pupils their places as citizens of the community and of the world. With the rich curriculum offered by the mem- bers of the department, every student should improve his citizenship. In addition every opportunity is presented to en- courage independent research in the fields of history and current events. This type of work produces a more tolerant and quick-thinking individual. MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT The mathematics course at Appleton High School is most complete for a school of this size. From the geometry of Euclid, which greets the sophomore, to the analytical geometry, which bids the senior fare- well, the courses are designed to show the individual how to think and reason by orderly methods, as well as to show the important role which math plays in our daily life. COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT The skills used in every business office and the knowledge necessary to carry on the business of life are developed by the commercial department. The classes offered to the student body are those of every day business, business principles, shorthand, typing, bookkeeping, oflice practice, and salesmanship. Practi- cal experience as well as theory are gained by com- mercial students. .

Faculty FINE ARTS DEPARTMENT Many students at A.H.S. give vent to their energies through musicMband, orchestra, or chorus. These teachers led their respective groups in radio exhibitions this year, as well as a Christmas program and programs for other schools. The musical festival, held in Menasha this year, was another highlight of the season. Speech Work covers a Wide range of activities also. The speech classes provide the basic material, that is, experience in many different types of speaking and in the correction of speech difficulties. Dramatics, oratory, declamation, debate, and extemporaneous speaking are the other activities in which students can gain valuable speech experience. Art provides many services which benefit manAin- dustrial, educational, cultural, and creative. Art work at the high school is designed to allow each individual as much freedom of expression as possible. The art worker can develop his course either as a means of his own expression or as a preparation for future work. INDUSTRIAL ARTS DEPARTMENT The modern shops of A.H.S. provide the best of opportunities for students to find their own interests and aptitudes in the industrial arts. The carefully pre- pared courses, including some of the more specialized types of work for seniors, are intended to enable stu- dents to make a wiser choice in their life's work. In addition a knowledge of industrial processes and the knowledge of the arts themselves are taught in this department. HOME ARTS DEPARTMENT The art of home living and working with others is one skill which we all need. Our instructors' projects include food preparation, a special course for senior boys, clothing, sewing, and a study of consumer buy- ing. The management of resources, the rearing of children, and a place in which to live are a few of the topics which come under consideration in the courses offered in this department.

Faculty HEALTH DEPARTMENT A recreation for the most exacting taste and physical fitness for all are the provision of the physical educa- tion department. All those exercises have their purpose in correcting faulty posture or other physical defects. No student finishes a course in this department with- out basic knowledge of several sports. In addition to the valuable ability of learning to relax through sports, it is hoped that each student may learn to care for his body and understand it as the perfect piece of machinery that it is. The department obtains the health record of each student through the physical examinations of sopho- mores in cooperation with the Appleton Medical As- sociation and the Mantoux skin test administered with the aid of the Wisconsin Anti-Tuberculin Associ- ation. CAFETERIA Feeding hundreds of students and teachers every noon is a superhuman task accomplished by Mrs. C. P. Heckel. Much of het time is spent in planning well- balanced, nutritious, as well as tasty, meals. With her corps of student assistants she serves meals daily both promptly and with a smile. CUSTODIANS The efficient group of nine custodians keeps the build- ing and landscape of Appleton Senior High School spotless and free from maintenance difficulties. The duties of the custodians vary from doing electrical work, firing the huge boilers, making repairs about the building to arranging furniture and giving final touches to clean classrooms.

Everyone contributed in some way to the whole realm of experiences: student council dances, the plays, sportsgthe most successful year in football-club meetings and activities, the new people and the new friends we've met. And of course the senior class play and the vodvil are still fresh in our minds. The whole show was finished in three incredibly short actsfthree flying years. t wasn't always like a fair, we received a sound education, but still some of the new experiences did have the effects of a first-tried ferris wheel ride or a dipping, thrilling roller-coaster. Some of us perhaps even became a little dazed and lost our way in the fun-house atmosphere of it all. Nevertheless, we always came out none the worse for wear and still ready to try again. An abundance of challenges have been left behind for those who next year will Call themselves seniors, Swiftly the final days crept up. Commencement came, and as the day itself arrived, the mighty seniors felt both happy and melancholy beneath traditional outward calm, as for the last time they passed beneath the sign that says . . .

After the first week, the school did not seem so terrifying as we began to take it in our stride. As we approached the midway of so many at- tractions to be absorbed, we were impressed with the multitude of things to be accomplished in such a short span of three years. Beginning with the Sophomore Talent Show, we started to demonstrate to the upper classes what We had to add to the display of talent and ingenuity offered by the school. We were applauded and encouraged by the enthusiastic audience. Many of our classmates made a creditable performance in the athletic arena and in the classroom as well as in the many extra-curricular activities. We bore with dignity the many slighting remarks of the juniors and seniors, which ranged from a sneering, "Are you from the kindergarten, or are you a soph?" to a laughing misdirection to the fourth floor "coke bar." Let us remember the old adage that if little acorns may make mighty oaks, so sophomores may some day progress to the "supreme" height of seniors. 95 re" 'I oe' 0506 " ,5 .

Often are these questions heard in the halls of A.H.S. Good entertainment is the rule rather than the exception, and the varied programs of the past year proved this statement. The loud cheering resounding from the gym during the pep sessions had good results. For the first time in 25 years, A.H.S. won the football conference champion- ship. The high morale of the school was much in evidence in our basketball, track, and tennis teams also. The lusty-voiced sophs joined the golden-throated upperclassmen in numerous community sings. Events of the year ranged from travel movies to stellar dramatic productions and scientific demonstrations. The year proved to be full of entertain- ment and edification for one and all.

The Debut of the Sophs j We're off to the mystic land of Langri-Sha and the court of King David and Queen Nita. Here in the enchanted atmosphere of a make-believe kingdom we watch the antics of two ex-confidence men, Mike Hammond and Dic Moriarty. After almost getting themselves beheaded, the two villains decide to appease the king and queen b j entertaining them with their variety show which they just "happened to have along." The jester, Leon Hamiltonl belittled their efforts. j A charming cello solo by Kaaren Maesch soothed the irate royal family. Now that the royalty was in a recep-j tive frame of mind, the brigands pressed their advantage with a short dramatic skit entitled "A Mystifying Mysf tery."

Dick Zimmerman read a selection, much to the enjoyment of the audience. A group of eight singers furnished the background for Marie Koller when she sang "Alice Blue Gown." Tumblers Donna Maas, Betty Werner, Gladys Lavine, Jean Ziegler, Gloria Gross, Marilyn Radtke, and Marjorie Smith went through their contortions for the gratification of the king and queen who were by this time in a mood to pardon anyone, even the co-emcees. Several senior girls assisted in the writing of the theme and in coaching the production. Mr. Jack Burroughs and his backstage crew furnished wonderful effects for the staging and lighting end. Miss Ruth McKennan was the dramatic coach for this new type of soph show. Page 52 .ff Pribnow fishes for a the parade . . . The enjoy their ice cream.

With Laughter and Tears The Dame Declamatory Contest was held on December Fourth of the 1947-48 school year. The participants displayed an excellent knowledge of their subjects and were well versed in the art of public speaking. Every decla- mation was well done and attested the prowess of Miss Ruth McKennan, coach for this forensic activity. Martha Benton, a senior, placed first with her most impressive presentation of Robert Knipes' play, "The Heritage of Wimpole Street." The cutting centered around a visit of Robert Barrett Browning to his grandfather, Edward Barrett. Robert feared his grandfather's reception and tried not to show it. Mr. Barrett was impressed with the boy's timid but courageous spirit, and by the end of Roberts visit, both were firm friends. Emmy Bunks, a junior, gave an impressionistic cutting from the book, Mamma and Her Bank Account by Kathryn Forbes. Using a Norwegian accent at times, Emmy gave a vivid portrayal of a closely knit family. Mamma sent her children through school and gave them a few luxuries by carefully saving the money brought into her home. The family never worried too much because of the bank account, and when prosperous times came, Mamma admitted the account was a hoax and had never existed. By this subterfuge she saved everyone from financial worry. One of Edgar Allan Poe's best stories of horror, "The Tell-Tale Heart," was presented by Alan Hoppe. This hair- raising story told of the dreadful fascination of a madman for the eye of his friend. Impelled by an insane desire to put the evil eye out of his sight, the madman killed his riend and buried the body under a bedroom floor. All would have ended well for the insane murderer if he had not fancied the beating of the corpse's heart. Unnerved, he confessed and was arrested. Robert Reetz used as his declamation "The Valiant" by Galsworthy Hall and Robert Middlemess. This sketch related what took place when a condemned criminal, James Dyke, was visited by his sister, who was looking for her long-lost brother, but didn't recognize James. He kept his secret and told her that her brother had died a hero in the army. Ginger Starks' selection was "A Mother of Manville" by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.

The Chimes of Normandy When the curtain closed on the "Chimes of Normandy," Saturday night, December 13, another excellent operetta had been presented by the A. H. S. Chorus. The romantic plot centered around the adventurer Henri, who, returning from exile to his ancestral home, fell in love with the maiden Germaine. Henri was portrayed by Keith Jahnke and Germaine by Helen Zeh. Ger- maine's supposed uncle Gaspard, John Bloomer, had arranged to have Germaine marry Baillie, an elderly man portrayed by Jim Jahnke. Stanley Sharpe acted the part of a cowardly fisherman whom Germaine had secretly promised to marry. Serpolette, Nancy Van Rooy, kept everyone in a stir with her gossip. Much credit is due Miss Marion Gerlach, musical director, Miss Ruth McKennan, dramatic director, and Mr. jack Burroughs, production director, for a Finished production.

With Logic Toward All Resolved: That the federal government require arbitration of labor disputes in all basic American industries This was the question on which the Appleton High School debaters based their speeches for the 1947-48 debate season The season started late in October and ran through February. After the tryouts were held, the coaches, Mr. Wetak, mathematics instructor, and Mr. Edge, social studies teacher, assigned students to the various squads Varsity debaters were Warren Belanger, John Kloehn, and Pat Wassenberg, alternate, aflirmative, and Nancy Play- man and Sue Nabbefeld, with Erik Madisen, Jr., alternate, negative. N A streamlined debate, cut to fifty minutes, was held for the students in the auditorium. The Kaukauna John Kloehn takes the stand while Warren Belanger looks on anxiously and the Kaukauna debate team, Dave Derus and Mary Foxgrover, await the argument. Page 56 negative team opposed our affirmative speakers. Late in February our negative team met Neenah's affirmative squad for a radio debate which was cut to only 28 minutes. On January 17th the "B" squad debaters went to Kaukauna to take part in the district tourna- ment. Two weeks later the district "A" tournament was held at Lawrence College. The Appleton var- sity members met six teams from northeastern Wisconsin schools. The "A" aflirmatives won three and the negatives won one for a total of four out of six and a tie for second place. This year the alternate system of debating was used. This placed three members on a squad, two speakers and an alternate. The alternate's job was to analyze the constructive speeches of the oppo- sition and to write rebuttal material for the two speakers. Hammond, Leonard, Younger, Gallaher, Hamilton. Words with a Punch The extemporaneous recital is given annually at Appleton High School to honor Ted Bolton and Carlton IRoth two outstanding students, who were drowned in Lake Winnebago while hunting. On the day of the annual recital, the five participating students drew five subjects and then chose one from among them as the topic for their speech. An hour was given to them to prepare their speeches. Each talk was rapproximately seven minutes in length and was given without notes. t l r 1 jim Youn er, the first speaker, summarized the possibilities for the 1948 "Presidential Election." He discussed each party an the men it was considering. Leon Hamilton talked on the third World War. He said that it would definitely be an air battle and it would be started in Europe. Stuart Gallaher compared democracy and communism. He pointed out the individual loses all rights Bill Leonard, Leon Hamilton, Jim Younger, Stuart Gallaher, and Mike Hammond take a curtain call. under a communistic government. When dealing with Russia, the United States must be firm. Great Britain's economic situation since the last war was discussed by Bill Leonard. He said it is hard for Britain to compete with the mass production methods of the United States because of high cost of production and low efiiciency of production there. The winner, Mike Hammond, talked on "Italy and its Coming Election." The United States has begun to change Russia's moves through the Trieste situation and others. He thinks what Italy needs is the assurance that the western European countries will unite and be backed by the United States. hiikc will have his name en- graved on the "Hall of Fame" where all the names of winners in forensic contests are inscribed. To conclude the program the ive speakers received the oHicial forensic key from Mr. Helble. The coach, Miss Elizabeth Plowright, social studies instructor, directed the whole recital.

Upholders of the Constitution Under the supervision of Mr. Kenneth Edge, the William Heiss Oratory Recital held its annual session on February 15 in the Appleton High School auditorium. This contest, the 27th of its kind, originated in honor of William Heiss who graduated from this school in 1916 and was killed while serving his country during World War I. The first speaker on the program was William Leonard, whose oration, "The Rights We Defend," tell lated the ways in which the Constitution of the United States insures the liberty and freedom for which ou country is noted, and the benehts we get from this code of laws. "The Average American citizen regards freedom like his health," stated William. "Our country is a stronghold of freedom and a guide for people of other lands who come to America to find the justice which our country insures." john Bloomer, who spoke about an Americans responsibility, centered his talk on the quotation of Thomas Gibbons, "That man lasts, but never lives, who much receives, but nothing gives, whom none can love, whom none can thank, Creation's blot, Creation's blank." John's oration stressed the importance and need for every citizen to understand the Constitution and to support our government. jack Hendricks' "Our Greatest Treasure" uncovered many facts of the greatest law of the world, the Constitu- tion, and by what means we can defend and protect it. "Our laws are flexible, and our liberties are safeguarded now and in the future," explained Jack. As a result, the Constitution is the most amazing document in the world. In his speech, "The Rights and Responsibilities of American Citizens," Alan Hoppe outlined how we can prevent a third world war. "This could be accomplished," explained Alan, "by being better citizens. One of these ways is by voting wisely for the candidate who would fill his job to the maximum of his ability and who would have the interest of all the people in mind. Another way is to be friendly to everyone regardless of his race or creed. " In the last speech of this 27th oratory recital, Robert Hubbell discussed in what ways we can make ourselves better people before we try to improve others and their countries. In his talk "Our Challen e in the Age of Con- fusion," Robert said, "There should be more men like Abraham Lincoln who are concerned with what they can contribute rather than what they will gain. There must be a change in the individual before we can establish all that our country stands and lives for." As a result of the contest, the faculty judges awarded Robert Hubbell and Alan Hoppe with the first place honor, and both of the boys will have their names engraved upon the Hall of Fame plaque. Robert represented our school in the district and sectional American Legion oratorical recital.

Budding Thespians Oscar Wilde's 19th Century opus, "The Importance of Being Earnest," led the season of dramatics. Bob Hubbell lived a dual life as a man-about-town in London under the name of Earnest, and in the country as the respectable guardian of his pretty niece, Emmy Bunks. Jack's friend, Alan Hoppe, was the only one Who knew. Emmy, bored vvith country life, fell in love with her uncle's description of his i'brother" Earnest. Alan visited Worthing's estate to meet the lovely ward, and Emmy, believing him to be Earnest, captured his heart. Bob's fiancee, Jeanne Jacobson, arrived and complicated matters by announcing that she, also, was engaged to Earnest. Barbara Hauert, who was Alan's aunt, did not approve Bob's marriage to her daughter. The situation was solved when Emmy's governess, Carla Heller, revealed that Bob vvas Alan's long-lost brother. Barbara then permitted both marriages, and the tvvo couples planned the ceremony with the minister, John Bloomer. "Wild Hobby Horses," by John Kirkpatrick, centered around Mike Hammond, a domineering businessman recuperating from an illness.

"Come Over to Our House" The audience grew silent as the curtains parted for the dramatic treat of the year, the senior class play. The class of 1948 did a magnificent job of putting on the comedy, "Come Over to Our House," written by Marijane and Joseph Hayes. - The plot centered around Jay Eldridge and his twin sister, Lindy. Jay was a serious-minded young musician who had almost achieved his ambition of auditioning for a scholarship to study under one of the greatest musicians of our time. Lindy and her friend Hugo were jazz hounds and often appropriated the piano when Jay wanted it or played loud swing records, much to his disgust. Marion, Jay's other sister, considered herself a great dramatic actress. This opinion was shared by no one else but her boy friend Butch. To complicate matters, two girls were in love with Jay, Evie Cannon and Madge Wilkens. Madge liked Jay for his character and great musical ability, Evie liked him for his personality but tried to change his personality and bring him out of his musical "shell."

Amanda, the mother of the Eldridge household, was being wooed by Mr. King and Mr. Reynolds, father of Butch and Hildred, a precocious child always in the wrong place at the wrong time. Grandma Thompson, who loved murder stories, quietly kept the family straightened out in its somewhat mad charge through life. The talent of this family did not remain undiscovered. Sascha Sevinsky, a volatile Russian, appeared to audition jay. Then, out of the blue, Damon Gottschalk, a Hollywood scout, arrived with an offer of a screen test for Jay. The confusion this created added to the complicated, but hilarious plot. Eventually all the love affairs ended amicably and classical music got the attention of the prodigy instead of Hollywood. A large part of the success of this dramatic venture was due to the direction of Miss Ruth McKennan, and the devotion to duty of Mr. Jack Burroughs and his lighting and production crews, and Miss Gene Warzinik with her make-up crew.

Next in order is the basketball team doing its part for A.H.S. Let's not, however, forget the B-squads, Appleton's future varsity teams. The next act of Appleton's athletic show includes the many intramural events and the Satur- day Morning Basketball League. For those who want to build bulging muscles, tumbling is offered. The athletes with a sharp eye and a good touch like to direct their efforts toward bowling and archery. With the coming of spring and warm weather we can view the third act, which has its scene on the tennis courts and the cinder track, The participants of the athletic show are many, and the only re- quirement that they must meet is one of interest-enough to take advantage of the extensive program. l l Back row: Coach Hamann, Hauert, Mauthe, Rettler, Buss, Notaras, Oehler, Hendricks, Reetz, Brandt, Locklin, Campbell, Fischer, King Hamilton, Schuessler, Dashner, Forrest, Coach Dillon, Middle row: Hammond, Sonkowsky, Steger, Cooper, Olfsen, Asman, Balliet, Hammond Verkuilen, Bartz, Henning, Cridelich, Belling, Belangerg Front raw: Liethen, Groves, Landis, Hauert, Kimball, Otis, Pumroy, Bodway, Spangen berg, Bodway, Leonard. Undefeated! Untied! With a host of returning lettermen 'to work with, coaches Ade Dillon and Ray Hamann led their charge, through a season of blasting and decisive victories without having tied or tasted defeat. This is the first time ii the 25 year history of the conference that an Appleton team has won the championship. The first game was the annual non-conference tilt against St. Mary's of Menasha. After two minutes Doi Bodway took a punt on the visitors' 47 yard line and carried the ball across the goal for the first touchdown The final score was Appleton 32, St. Mary's O. Fond du Lac, a team rated to place in the second division, gave the Terrors a good fight right up to the end Bill Campbell stopped a Fond du Lac ball carried on the two yard line in the last play of the game and held tht opponents to 19 points while the Terrors tallied 20. Traveling to Green Bay the squad overtook the purple and white West gridders 20-O and gave an exhibitior Coach Hamann, Co-captains Owen Balliet and Jim Hammond, and Coach Dillon plan the strategy for the homecoming game. Page 64 of strength and perfect teamwork attainable only by 1 championship team. This was the first time since l93f that Appleton had defeated the West Bays. In the third conference tilt the Orange and Blue upset Sheboygan North 28fO in a game which pre sented little trouble to the championship seeking Ter- rors but did give a great deal of experience to the re- SCI'VCS. The homecoming game against Green Bay East was one of suspense from the beginning to the end Marv Verkuilen, playing one of his best games of thc year, made the only score of this contest on a brilliani end run early in the initial quarter. Both teams threat- ened to score after this but were always stopped shora of the double line. This 780 victory gave the '47 Terror: another distinction-that of being the first Appletor team to beat both Green Bay schools in the same season On a hot summer-like afternoon the Terror ll per spired through its last home game and came up with z final tally of 19-6 against Sheboygan Central. The scor- ing started in the first quarter when Hammonc 'W Ley"t: The new champions display broad smiles as they hold their dpennant. Right: The boys give championship coach Ade Dillon a happy ri e off the field. tossed a pass to Mory Locklin, who was waiting in the end zone. This was repeated for the second score, and Don Bodway raced through the line and for 44 yards for the last six points. This was the last chance for the 17 seniors to play on their home field, and they all turned in a supreme performance. Next, the Terrors traveled to Oshkosh to meet the host team at their homecoming game. Although it rained throughout the second half, this did not dampen the Oshkoshllndians' spirits as much as the 12-O defeat they took from the Terrors. Appleton kept up their tradition of making a touchdown the nrst time they got the ball and from then on they overpowered the Indians on the ground and in the air, despite Weather conditions. Winding up the season in true championship style, the Orange and Blue traveled to Manitowoc and sank the Ships 34-14. This last game was a typical one of eleven outstanding stars working together for the team and for victory. ' When the honors were passed out, the Terrors placed two of their players on the all-state 11. Jim Hammond was given the nod for his consistent play at the quarterback slot. Throughout the season Jim proved his ability in calling plays, running, passing and kicking. Don Hamilton was given a berth on the all-state team for his powerful line play from the guard position. He was continually in the oppositions' back field and handing out losses of many yards to them. The Appleton Exchange club topped off the season by giving a banquet for the champions. At this time it was announced that Jim Hammond had -been unanimously chosen by his fellow team mates as the most valuable player on the squad. Dick Rettler and Tom Cooper were chosen as the co-captains for next year to replace Dooley Balliet and Jim Hammond. Coach Dillon also handed out 29 letters and the prized gold footballs, emblems of championship. Lefrsjim Hammond has started and he doesn't look like he is going to be stopped.

Champs a La 1950 When assistant coach G. A. Ediger called the first B-squad practice, early in September, between 30 and 40 hopeful boys, mostly sophomores, responded. After the first few weeks were devoted to the learning of general football fundamentals, a schedule of six games was played. In their first game the junior Terrors were beaten by a l3f6 Count as the Neenah jayvees got off on several long runs. The Appleton B's squared things in the second encounter coming out on top 15-13. An alert Appleton lineman tackled a Rocket man in his own end zone during the last minute of play for a safety. Appleton also played two games with the Clintonville B's. At Clintonville, Appleton kept the Truckers with one foot in their own end zone throughout the first half but couldn't hold out as the Clints won 6-0. The score was reversed when the Terrors were on their home field Appleton 6, Clintonville 0. Appleton lost a heartbreaker to the East Green Bay B-squad 7H0. The Terrors were on the Bay's 1 yard line three times but couldn't push it over. ' The Terrors traveled to Green Bay's West side to meet the junior Red Devils. West scored three touchdowns before Appleton settled down, but the Terrors found the deficit a bit too much as they were on the short end of a 25-13 score. At the season's close, Coach Ediger awarded 22 numerals to boys who played and practiced faithfully.

Saga of a Successful Season In past years there have been many outstanding Terror basketball squads, but the boys who played in '47 and '48 have been labeled by all as the greatest team ever to play for the Blue and Orange. In a pre-season meeting the Fox River Valley sports writers chose Appleton as the team to take the honors. The boys immediately seized this as their goal and throughout the year they lived up to and surpassed everybody's expectations. When tally was taken at the end of the season it was proudly announced that the Terrors had broken a record set by Appleton teams in the early 30's by winning 22 successive games. Coach Seims built his team around seven returning lettermen: Captain Bob Brandt, center, Mory Locklin, Jim Hammond, and Bill Campbell, forwards, and Jack Pribnovv, "Dooley" Balliet, and Tom Steger, guards. Three of these boys, Bob Brandt, Mory Locklin, and Jack Pribnow, were placed on the all-conference team for their excellent play throughout the year. Jim Hammond narrowly missed the first all-conference team but was rated the number one forward on the second team. The Terrors, not having reached the perfection that they displayed throughout the conference season, lost their hrst game to Menasha in a non-conference Warm up tilt. In other non-conference games the Orange and Blue edged out Wauwatosa 42-40. A week later Neenah High School fell victim to the Terrors by a score of 41-30. Page 69 CONFERENCE GAMES Conference play opened with a flourish when the title-seeking Ter- rors trounced West Green Bay 43-16. When Appleton traveled to Green Bay for the second battle, the Wild- cats failed to show much more fight than they previously had and were dropped 42-25. Continuing with their well- known team Work the Terrors downed Fond du Lac 40-23 in another easy contest. The second game, how- ever, which was played on the Cardinals' floor, proved to be much more of a challenge. In the third quarter, the Terrors were trailing 30-15 when sud- denly the great rebound work of Brandt, Ham- mond, anhd Locklin began to click and in a fast and furious second half the score was reversed. A tally of 45-41 was recorded when the game ended. When Appleton traveled to Sheboygan North, they met a scrappy team which almost upset the Terrors with a fourth quarter rally. Final score: Appleton 37, Sheboygan 31. Revenge was taken, however, when the Orange and Blue played host. The Golden Raiders easily dropped to a 51-21 score. Using the subs throughout the game, the Seimsmen dropped Green Bay East 49-23. When the East Boys traveled to Appleton, the subs again saw action throughout the game and turned back the Red Devils 40-23. Displaying championship style the Terrors held Oshkosh to 11 points while they tallied 41. Traveling to Oshkosh the Orange and Blue found hardly more resistance than in the first encounter. Final Score: Appleton 53, Oshkosh 29. Battling Sheboygan Central in a rough contest the Terrors took the game in the last few minutes by a score of 41-32. Central traveled to Appleton for the "big" game of the season which was played before a capacity crowd of over 2,000 spectators. Playing against a strong team which averaged 6' 3" in height the champs secured their title with a 42-38 win. Led by Mory Locklin and Jim Hammond the Terrors easily defeated Manitowoc 39-28. The final game of the season was also played against the Ships. Before a crowd composed entirely of Manitowoc boosters, the Orange and Blue lost their only conference game 37-29.

Out of these boys who tried out, Coach Vernon Thorson picked fifteen whom he trained and drilled in order to accomplish a good season. The team ended its season with a total often wins and seven losses, nine wins and hve losses made up the conference standings. The junior basketeers played two pre-season games. First they traveled to Menasha and nosed out their foes by a 32-18 count. Next, Kaukauna visited Appleton and the B squad took it on the chin for their first loss, col- lecting only 19 points to Kaukauna's 22. The Bees played three conference games before the Christmas holidays. In the first game they met Green Bay West and crushed them by a score of 45--22. With high hopes they met Fond du Lac and barely skimmed by them with a tight 36f35 score. They next buried Sheboygan North's 22 count with their 26. Here they quit the conference tilts for a few weeks and turned to Neenah in a non-conference game but were handed their second defeat by three points, 3Of27. The Neenah game was the last non-conference tilt, and now the team rolled up its sleeves and dug into the pile of conference games which lay ahead of them. The hrst on the list was East Green Bay whom they defeated by a short 18-16 f count, and then keeping in their winning stride, they put Gshkosh away with 27 points to Oshkosh's 21. But all good things have to end sometime, and Sheboygan Central stopped them with a slim 29128 victory. The Jay Vee's were still staggering from the first blow when they were hit again. This time against Manitowoc's 28 points they could collect only 23 counts, and that ended the first round with five wins and two losses. The second round of return games started in the same manner as the team smashed West Green Bay for the second time by a 30 to 19 score. The boys couldn't repeat the first round win with Fond du Lac as Fondy gently pushed our junior varsitymen further down in the standings with a 39 to 26 whaling. Now, with three conference losses, they matched ability and skill with Sheboygan North and squeezed out in front with a 23f22 win. Green Bay East came along for the second time and Appleton totaled 38 almost smothering East's 14. Oshkosh didn't like the idea of being beaten twice by our B-team, so they handed us another loss, this time by a score of 38 to 36. The B-squad considered the season a success after they handed Sheboygan Central a 33 to 23 defeat, thereby ending Central's win streak which had run into the thirties. In the last game at Manitowoc the Bees were nosed out 31 to 27 and ended the season with a record of nine victories and hve defeats. EaCl1 1HC1T1lD6I' of the ICZIITI received UumCI'alS.

The Third Crown Winners When coach Marvin Babler was questioned as to the prospects of the 1948 cindermen he replied, "If we don't run into any hard luck such as injuries, the boys should make a good showing." The team was again hindered by the weather this year and could not get out of doors until rather late in the season, but once out the boys pro- gressed rapidly and showed every intention of backing up coach Marvin Babler's prediction. Coach Herbert Simon, in charge of the sprints, worked hard with the following boys trying to improve the newer runners of the squad: Purdy, Bestler, Temple, and Spangenberg. Coach Kenneth Kuemmerlein, in charge of the distance runners, reported that Zwicker was shaping up into one of the better quarter milers in the conference. Other quarter milers were Holtz, Thornton, and Murphy. Running the 88O yard race were Hussey, Cooper, Podzilni, Asman, and Koehn. The milers included Ford, Heinrich Staple, Krueger, Hoel, and Brockhouse. Boys who were working to repeat the relay championship that Appleton won last year are Purdy, Spangen- berg, Bestler, and Zwicker. Featured in the shot put were three of the outstanding boys in Appleton's history. Heading the list was co- captain Bob Brandt, who is the defending conference shot put champ and who has been putting the shot over 48 feet in practice. Completing the powerful triangle of shot putters were Campbell and D. Bodway. Other boys working on this event were Rettler, Notaras, K. Bodway, and Sondovvski. Another outstanding athlete on the squad was Pribnow, who works with the discus and set a record of 145 feet 9M inches at Manitowoc. Other discus throwers were K. Bodway, Mattes, Hendricks, Sambs, Moriarty, and King. In the hurdle events co-captain Verkuilen was regarded as the best in Appleton's history. Closely . following him was Jim Hammond. Supporting these T boys in the hurdles are Brandt, Kienitz, Locklin, Piette, Fredericks, Belling, and Olfson. Jim McGee set a new school record in the pole vault by clearing ll feet 6 inches. Other vaulters were Henning, Hauert, O. I-Iouser, and M. Hammond. Featured in the high jump were Boen, Defferding, Spencer, and Juneau. Broad jumpers were Dashner, Fast, Miller, and Von Drosek. During the last three years Appleton has lost only one dual meet, we Wish all the boys and the coaches good luck in continuing this record. We congratulate the tracksters on completing the first triple crown in conference history. In the 1947-48 season the Terrors gained championships in football and basketball in addition to the track title. c Mike Hammond, Bob Murphy, Russ Podzilni, jim Thornton, and Walter Zwicker take an extra lap around the track. 1 Page 72 PM ..,...

Smash Hits Tennis practice started early in March this year for the defending co-champion Terrors. For Coach Ade Dillon :he prospects of repeating as champs were dimmed as six letter winners from last year's squad had graduated. Captain Stuart Schaefer and Jim Rogers were the only lettermen remaining, and these two formed the body of :he 1948 team. Between 25 and 30 boys reported for indoor practice. Conditioning exercises, basic strokes, and footwork were stressed until the team got outdoors late in March. Henry Dupont, a Lawrence College player who is rated iumber one player in the state, conducted a tennis clinic in the high school gym on March 16. During spring vacation a ranking tournament was played to give Coach Dillon a better idea of what new material he had. Stuart Schaefer won the tourney by defeating Gene Stecker. He reached the finals by beating Tom Lemons, Gene Heller, and Jim Rogers. Stecker passed Ken Parker, Dick Faas, and Jim Garvey. The first match of the year was played against a group of former Terror netters. Among these were Jack Young, Lee Cotton, and N orb Van Dinter, members of the champion 1947 team, and Doug Robertson, Bob Schmid, and Shuck Miller, all players from past years. Dillon's hopes were enlightened as the Terrors trimmed the alumni Ey a score of 7-3. Stuart Schaefer started things off by defeating Young at the number one position. After Gene tecker lost to Cotton, the Terrors walked away with the next five singles as Jim Rogers downed Robertson, Soph lerry Ristau took Van Dinter, Jim Garvey beat Schmid, Dick Faas beat Millet and Gene Heller won over Don Sreb. ln the doubles Young and Robertson defeated Dick Peters and Bob Rosenberg, Cotton and Van Dinter won Lawrence net star Henry Dupont shows Captain Stuart Schaefer, oach Dillon and onlookers the line points o tennis. l from Lowell Tornow and Ken Parker, Jack Fielkow and Bill Courchane came back with a win over Schmid and Tom McKenzie. Appleton's first conference match was played at Oshkosh, but darkness prevented the completion of the doubles. Oshkosh was leading in the singles 3-2. However, a bright spot was the showing of sophs Jerry Ristau and Jim Garvey as they both came through to post wins. Dillon's charges surprised West Green Bay as they won 741. Gene Stecker and Jim Rogers won easily. jim Garvey and Jerry Ristau completed the first five. In a non-conference match Appleton lost a 4-3 decision to Neenah. In the singles Stuart Schaefer won at the number one position. Gene Stecker and Jim Rogers lost at the two and three positions respectively. Jerry Ristau tied the match two up as he won. Jim Garvey lost his match and Neenah led 3-2. Appleton dropped one double match and won the other. After seeing his team in action, Coach Dillon looked to the future with high hopes and looks with pleasure on the prospects of next year's team. , Page 73 UPPER PICTURE, standing: Muenster, Faas, Nygren, Burmeister, Mr. Black, seated: Gust, Kraus, Jimos, Konitzer.

Bow Benders Though the origin of the bow and arrow is lost in antiquity, the sport as we know it today is as exciting to enthusiasts as all other modern sports. Coach Black has proved this to the neophytes, "mid-men," and "better than that's" in the 1947-1948 season. Everyone knows that women are of the weaker sex, so naturally differences have to be made in such things as the drawing power of the bow, shooting distances, and the circumference of the bow. The girls usually use a twenty-Eve pound drawing power bow while the boys handle a sixty-five pound one. Women shoot fifty and sixty yardswmen's distances range from sixty to one hundred yards. Girls also have the handicap of a queerly shaped arm. Instead of being straight, like a man's, there is an obtuse angle at the elbow. This is why girls have less strength and why their arms get in the way when shooting. The school furnishes the bows, arrows, strings, finger tips, targets, and bracers for the archers. If you have joined the W.I.A.A. insurance plan, you will have nothing to worry about. "Safety first" might well be the slogan of this organization because archery is a dangerous sport. Remember before archery was outmoded by guns, it was considered a major weapon. Looking at sports from the practical viewpoint, we find archery among the best. Good archers can, during the hunting season, shoot deer, strap the venison over their vehicles and say, "I shot that buck myself." A few A.H.S. boys have done this already, much to the delight of Coach Black. Archery is also good for one's posture and poise and a fine year-around sport which can be carried on both indoors and outdoors.

Every Friday the club met t the Arcade bowling alleys. The officers for the 1947-48 season were Bill Leonard, president and jerry Reider, secretary-treasurer. 1 Team captains were Dennis Laux, Erv Kopischke, Jim Rogers, Hank Liebzeit, Leroy Zeigler, Lowell Tornow, Lod Coon, and Bill Leonard. 3 Throughout the winter, regular league matches were played. There were also several special tournaments and latches, Bud Everts took the singles crown while Bill Leonard and Jim Endter captured the doubles title. In March the two top teams competed in a district meet with high school bowling teams from around this part of the state. i One of the highlights of the year was the choosing of all-star teams to roll against the A.H.S. faculty. This ill-star team is composed ofthe top bowlers in the league as determined by their averages. l The "Honor Societyii of the bowling club was the ZOO club. Any regular bowler who had a single game score f 200 or more automatically became a member. These boys were Erv Kopischke, Rod Coon, Dennis Laux, jim ogers, ,lim Jentz, ,Ierry Reider, Red Tornow, Bud Everts, Don McCollum, Louis Precourt, Jack Pankratz, Delmar Henning, Jim Ertl, and Jim Shebilske. Trophies were awarded for the high individual game and series. Team captains chose a most valuable player 'ho received a 15 inch trophy and a most improved player who received a 13 inch trophy. After the regular season there were playoffs. The winners of these playoffs were given miniature gold bowling alls, and the second, third and fourth place teams were given pins or medals.

At the beginning of each school year, for the period of about five weeks, students try out for and by a process of elimination are admitted into the organization The girls are judged by their ability to perform various exercises and dance steps After this test 1 required to present a dance of their ovvn making from the exercises they have learned A group of five judges mines their worth, and applicants arelthereby admitted into the club. This year eight nevvimem- bers were accepted. The usual procedure for induction was carried out at a combination Christmas party and initiation. The group met once a week, and the meetings were conducted by the president, Helen Taylor, the vice-president, Joanne Jansen, and the secre- tary-treasurer, Barbara Hauert. The main feature of the club's activities was the annual spring concert. This year the group of sixteen members presented a program which drama- tized the United Nations. The girls formed groups and picked out a country they Wanted to portray. Appropriate music was selected, and then the work began. Interpreting the music and moving their agile bodies to create a dance were the next step. Some of the groups were advised by Miss Foster who came from a different city to help the organi- zation. Some of the costumes were ordered from out of the city, but the majority of them were made by the members. The entire production was directed by Miss Aphrodite Thanos, physical educa- tion instructor. Several of the girls, who are mem- bers ofthe orchesis club, also did special work with the Civic Ballet group, under the direction of Beverly Lemke.

Enthusiasm Unlimited This year the Girls' Athletic Association underwent a few new changes in the process of reorganization. among the changes was the newly installed point system. Each girl earned a certain number of points for partici- sating in the games. Extra points were awarded for winning. At the end of the year awards were given to the hree persons with the most points. The first award was an emblem, the second, a letter, and the third prize was , pin. The organization met every Thursday under the advisership of Miss Pauline Gaertner. Meetings were con- lucted by the president, Virginia Lowell, who was assisted by Joan Eggert acting as the vice-president. Other iflficers were the secretary-treasurer, Gladys Lavine, and Margie Smith, the point recorder. Short business meet- ngs have been the common practice. Besides using all their energy in playing games, these girls sold pop, candy bars, peanuts, and stickers at all tome games. Repairing hockey sticks and cleaning trophies were two other activities out of the regular category. Zach year, it seems, the task of cleaning trophies takes nore and more time. Among the regular activities participated in were uasketball, soccer, speedball, volleyball, tennis, soft- iall, and bowling tournaments. The last pep session of the year was conducted fy the G.A.A. Five of the girls imitated the A.H.S, hampionship team, five others represented the losers. Besides gaining sport skills and better physical onditions, the members learned the principles of good portsmanship. Like most clubs of this sort, a party vas a climax to the year's activities, This year was a revival as the membership was he largest in years. This was due, primarily, to the ncoming sophomores who brought back the interest n sports that had been lacking. Although every team and individual took her hare of bumps and bruises, this was a very successful l3.A.A. year. Pat Webb, Janis Rowan, Edith Gust, Betty Werner, and Virginia Lowell plan the bowling tournament.

Artistic Acrobats Skill, self-confidence, perfect timing, and more than enough practice: these are the fundamentals of tumblin Some students have the skill, the timing, and self-confidence that help to make a good tumbler and would lili the chance to better themselves. This they can acquire from the Tumbling Club of Appleton High School, whicj is under the able direction of Coach David Black. This year the club had 25 members, 12 of them girls, and out c these Mr. Black has produced a dozen or more expert amateur tumblers. During the basketball season the bes tumbler performed at the half-time period. The Tumbling Club met weekly after school on Mondays. The first few weeks the club met in the small gym' nasium and worked on getting in condition and straight ground tumbling such as the forward and backward flip Though these floor tricks may appear easy, it takes skill and training to form them. Later the club took to the big gymnasium where they used the rings, the horizontal bar, and the parallel barg Don Koskinen demonstrates the use of the trampolin. Page 78 On the rings, tricks such as the dislocate, swing rise, kip, cut-o and fly-away were learned. The horizontal bar was used for th pull-up, knee circles, Wiggle up, and kip. On the parallel bars th members learned to do shoulder stands, hand stands, forward an- backward rolls, and also the swing rise. These tricks were the mos- daring and spectacular part of tumbling and the ones most enjoyei by the students. All of these tricks help to perfect timing and muscl coordination. This year the tumbling club has added a trampolin to its lis of equipment. The trampolin is a large piece of canvas fastened ti springs, and the springs are fastened to a support. The part of th apparatus that is used stands about three feet from the floor ani enables tumblers to bounce high in the air and do many skillf tricks. It takes even more skill to work on this device since the peld former must stay on such a small area for every trick. The trampolii was used between the halves of two of the basketball games thi year and will be used more in years to come because the performanc were enjoyed greatly by the audience. This year's tumbling du? deserves much credit for its accomplishments. The completion of this successful year leaves a challenge ti future club members.

Future Pros Saturday Morning Basketball was played again this year under the able guidance of Coach Witzke. After ponsors were found for all the teams, two leagues were organized, the National and the American. No varsity ,layers were used on any team, but one member of the B-squad could play on each team. After the regular season, a play-off tournament was held with Unmuths' winning the championship over the Dairy Queen quintet while Sherry Motors took consolation honors. Miniature basketballs were to be given to he first and second place team, and medals went to the next four teams in the play-offs. In the National League Carl Stumpf led the scoring parade with 174 points. He was followed by Orv Koepke vith 169, Bob Murphy 131, Delmar Henning 120 and Jimmy Hoel with 118 points. Don Bodway ran off with ionors in the American League by throwing in 208 points, next came Jim Belling with 111, Bob Koehne 87, Dick Dehler 86, and Bill Lemke, who scored 82 points. Sherry Motors, winners in the American League, topped the team scoring with 478 points. The Lutz Ice five howed the edge in defense allowing only 237 points to be scored against them. In the National League Ponds Lport scored a total of 542 points. The winning Unmuths' Drugs were first of the defense column with 274 points going into the basket by their opponents. The games were odiciated by several varsity players or other members of the league with refereeing ability. icorekeepers were Jim Kositzke, Eugene Kositzke, and Cliff Juneau.

Within the Walls Intramural sports for 1947-48 in Appleton High School included boxing, noon-hour basketball, handball volleyball, tennis, and softball. The intramural boxing tournament followed a five-week unit on boxing during class periods. Additiona instructions on boxing were acquired on Wednesdays after school during the five-week unit. Any student wht thought he was swift and skillful enough to meet good opposition could sign up for this sport. Usually there wer from 70 to 100 or more students. There were 10 weight divisions with about a six pound advantage. The decision of the fights were made by two judges and a referee, and the winners received small gold boxing gloves. The noon-hour basketball tournament came after a short period of basketball fundamentals taught durin, Class periods. This year the league had 10 teams with each team playing one game a vveek. No B-squad or varsitj basketball members could play on the noon-hour teams and no awards were given. Handball was played by teachers and students almost the whole school year. There were tournaments i handball going on all the time in class periods as well as after school. Volleyball was also played during class periods followed by a tournament. The tournament started soon aft spring vacation with eight or ten teams consisting of six players each. The games were played during the noosl hour, and each team played twice a week. There were no awards given, but the competition was spirited. Every fall there is a tennis tournament for sophomores and upper-classmen. The sophomores had instruction and drills on tennis every day during the fall weeks. The tournament was played after school, and this year 4 sophomores and 24 upper-classmen participated. There were two winners, a sophomore and an upper-classmar who received miniature gold tennis rackets. During the closing weeks of the school year the softball tournament was scheduled twice a week. Six t eight teams entered with the regular 10 main teams. Awards were given to each member of the winning tear by the Amateur Softball Association. Each year the Marx Award is given to the oustanding boy and girl who have participated in all the intramura sports and who have shown unusual work in all thegsports.

Behind the scenes of every success there are those groups which work faithfully toward one common goal, and so it is with a Fair. Now you will meet all these people who have, with their varied interests and abilities, quietly but continuously worked to make this Fair an event which will live in the hearts of its patrons for many years to come. These diligent students have supervised the publicity, adver- rising, mechanics, entertainment, and the many other details which are necessary for a Well-rounded exhibition.

The wishes for iir provements in various departments are conveyed from the individual student to his councilor and by the councilc to the meetings. At these meetings the new suggestions are thoroughly discussed, and if made into a motion, ar voted upon. Several new projects have been adopted by the council this year. One of the first was the adoption of a Lette Day every Friday to give due credit to those wh had excelled in any of the four major sports and ha earned a letter. In this way the athletic as well a the scholastic ability of the typical student i stressed. ' It was decided early in the year to have a serie of student forums or round table discussions. Th first of these concerning the subject of "Edu.catio for Today," was presented on the radio and befor the student assembly, after which the student: asked questions. The council maintained the traditions of pas years by providing a friendly and informal receptio for new students and teachers. The revision of th student handbook is an important project every yeal The council is ably led by Jim Hammonc president, Bill Campbell, vice-president, joa. Schroeder, secretary-treasurer. This organization in under the helpful guidance of Mr. Herbert Helbl and Miss Marie Port. Bill Campbell, Joan Schroeder, jim Hammond, and Marty Benton rehearse their round table discussion.

The Latin Club entered a float in the home- coming parade, and it also sang Latin carols in lthe halls at Christmas time. To study the ancient Romans and their customs 's just one of the many purposes of the club. The eetings are conducted in much the same way as was the Roman government with Warren Belanger and Lenore Buth as co-consuls. The treasurer was Frank Freeman, secretary Shirley Silliman, and program chairman John Bloomer. Meetings were under the supervision of advisers Miss Elsie Kopplin and Miss La Verne Kniebusch.

Gesellschaft der cleutschen Stuclenten The members of the student body who make up the German Club are ambitious and hard-working studentsl who are studying German this year. To stay in the Club a student must be able to maintain a grade of M average for the entire year. If the member's grade drops below this standard, he is automatically dropped from the club. The second Monday of each month is the day on which the club meets. A member's house is usually the place of meetingfdbut sometimes the meeting isgheld-at school. Each meeting, which is called to order by the president,l includes a short procedure of business, and then some form of entertainment. Sometimes movies are shovvn, puzzles are worked, or the club participates in singingj The officers who were elected by the club for this year are Clarence Meltz, president, Bill Campbell, vice-president, Germaine Werner, secretary, and Jeanne Haug, treasurer. One of the nicest, best liked, and outstanding social events of the club is the singing in the halls of the school at Christmas time. The stu- dents spend time at their club meetings preparing for it. They sing some of the best loved Christmas carols in German, for the benefit and delight of the students and faculty. Special programs are prepared by the stu- dents of the club for other holidays. Sometimes this club gets together with the other language Clubs and they prepare programs such as the one that takes place at Christmas time where all the language clubs participate. The main purpose of the German Club is to have a time once a month where German students can get together and have some fun, but at the same time learn many useful things about the German German Club members sing Christmas Carols in the halls. language. Mr. John Doerfler is the very capable adviser of the Club.

Spanish Club members of Appleton High School meet on the second and fourth Monday of every month. At these meetings the students participate in both entertaining and educational feats. For instance, at one meeting they may divide the club into two teams and see which one knows the most about Spanish. Other meetings might be social and then refreshments are served, and the group is entertained by skits in Spanish or occasionally movies with guest speakers who have traveled through South America. The aim of this organization is to understand the Spanish speaking peoples, particularly Latin Americans, better. Through a study of customs and ideas of our Southern neighbors in a very informal manner a feeling of kinship is achieved. Membership in the club is determined mostly by Spanish grades. One must have an M+ semester rating to be eligible for membership. Any student who continues with Spanish the second year and was not inducted during his first year automatically becomes a member. The main events of the year are the Christmas party, the initiation of new members, and the Spring Party. The Christmas and Initiation parties are both informal gatherings in the Early American Room. Refreshments are served and some type of entertainment is provided. The "Spring Party" is the traditional "Wienie Roast" at Pierce Park. This is the event perhaps most enjoyed by the members for then they can all don their jeans and old shirts and tramp over to the park for a real get together. The Club is under the supervision of Miss Rosemary Heenan, Spanish teacher, and is guided by Bill Leonard, president, Jim jentz, vice-presi- dent. Joan Furstenberg, the secretary, records the minutes and Noel Ford, treasurer, watches over the funds. "Hasta luego, adios!" ofthe Spanish Club.

Green Thumbs . The Nature Club's meetings were brought to order by the president, Bob Koehler, and under the supervision of Mr. Charles Scribner. These meetings were held twice a month on Friday. At many of these meetings the members saw films and heard speakers on various phases of science. Field trips were planned as often as possible to acquaint the members with out-of-door life and to link the club's activities with the community. The club is affiliated with thejunior Academy of Science, which throughout the state promotes individual research in all the phases of science. This year our Nature organization published one issue of the Teri Tube Timer, the oflicial publication of the Junior Academy. The social events of the year were the Christmas party, the annual picnic, and the meeting of the repre- sentatives of each organization associated with the The club members contributed much of their time and effort to jobs taken over by the Nature Club. Tree planting was a task looked forward to by all the students. This job required a full day in which the members planted from one thousand to one thousand five hundred trees. Bird feeding which is done in cooperation with the Outagamie Conservation Club, demanded daily attention by the students. The care of the museum was another task of the organization. Each year at Christmas the students gather boughs and decorate the windows and halls. The flower boxes were also tended by the students. This year the Nature Club broke one of its records. For the first time in its history it won first prize for having the most attractive float in the homecoming parade. Other officers were Peter Notaras, vice-president, Carol Peterson, secretary, Jean Steinfest, treasurer. Ofhcers Peter Notaras, Bob Koehler, Carol Peterson, and Harry Arthur examine some of the specimens from the museum.

Keyboard Specialists The Commercial Club, organized in 1934 by a group of commercial majors, is open to seniors who are major- ing in the commercial field and maintain at least an M average in all of their academic subjects. Meetings are held twice a month, and the club devotes the first meeting to business. At the second meeting of the month, which is often held at an individual's home, business is discussed and social activities follow. Fre- Delores Gelbke, Myrtle Schroeder, jean Caldie, Dorothy Spilker, Shirley Pockat, and Betty Wiegand do some job research. quently the club secures a well-known business man or woman from the city as a guest speaker. The purpose of the meetings is to increase their knowledge of the busi- ness world through personal interviews and observation. The Commercial Club, in keeping with its tradition, plans and prints Homecoming programs every year. Members of the club are also on hand to type entries for students who desire to enter articles for the "Pat- terns of Star Dust." Heading the list of officers this year was Dorothy Spilker, president and Jean Caldie, vice-president. Betty Wiegand took the minutes of each meeting, and Myrtle Schroeder was trusted with the club funds. "Tally" reporter was Delores Gelbke, and Shirley Pockat, the historian, kept this year's records. Mr. Bruno Krueger, Mr. Herbert Simon, Miss Laura Livermore, Miss Leone Robichaud, Mr. Harold Briese and Mr. Vernon Thorson are commercial depart- ment members and acted as faculty advisers.

Literary Lights The Student Library Staff is comprised of twenty very able seniors, who have worked completely, enthusi- astically, and energetically to serve the student body as a whole and the faculty. Some of the various duties of these very busy students are as follows: checking in and shelving the books that are returned, filing the many clippings that are needed by students, taking care of the fifty or so periodicals which come into the library, mend- ing the badly torn and much used books, clipping important articles from the newspapers, and charging out the books which are taken by students during the day. - Each month the first and third Wednesdays are devoted to staff meetings conducted by the head librarian, Miss Ruth Mielke, and her able assistant Miss Ethelwynn Baerwaldt. At this time the students bring up puzzling X questions concerning their work. Plans for coming events are thoroughly discussed. New books are always a source of de- light and interest to the students and faculty, The books are discussed and credited as to their merits. They are then priced and if they meet the approval of the staff are then ordered. These books include every type of reading material which would prove to be both enjoyable and helpful to us. A The various bulletin boards which are situated in the library call for various topics such as Book Week, Christmas, Easter, and many other holidays and social events. The staff first design the display and then busy themselves in getting the material and information needed. The hours after school are devoted to preparing the boards and straightening the whole library after a hard day of use. c A large tea in celebration of the Wisconsin Centennial was a successful social event for the library staff this year, It was held in the library and members of the cooking classes served the tea and cake. Pat Willoughby and Janet Brietrick admire -the Christmas bulletin board. Page 88 l so W UPPER PICTURE, standing: Hubbell, Mr. Babler, Madisen, Weiss, seated: Neider, Stapel, Roehm, Darling, Pesetsky.

The Educational Viewpoint Organized in 1945 by a group of boys interested in bettering film conditions at Appleton High School, the Visual Aid Club has developed into an outstanding organization and is highly recognized and appreciated by the entire student body. To become a member of the club, one must pass a test to indicate just how much he has absorbed from the instruction given to all interested students by Mr. Marvin Babler, faculty adviser. The test involves such things as operation of cameras, skill with various other pieces of movie equipment, and the safe handling of film. The boys learn how to operate the slides, movies, film strips, art projectors, and opaque projectors, also hovv to take care of play backs and the school recorder. The boys are always on call to aid the teachers in the opera- tion of any audio-visual aid. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Wed- nesdays of every month. After many of the business meetings, the group enjoys entertainment provided for the club by Mr. Babler. A . Ofiicers of the club this year were President Delton Roehm and Vice-president Carl Stapel. Archer Neider was responsible for the club funds, and Stephen Darling acted as this year's secretary. Sergeant-at-arms was Archer Neider, ErikLMadisen, Delton Roehm, Carl Stapel, and Bernard Pesetsky. Bernard Pesetsky service one of the projectors. .

In the Spotlight Lights! Curtain! Action! These are the familiar words that proceed each and every successful Curtain Call production. This year, as always, the group presented two very successful one act lays, "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde and "Wild Hobby Horses" by John Kirkpatrick. Besi es these productions the annual Sophomore Talent Show and Senior Vaudeville were also produced and coached by members of Curtain Call. This year's senior class play, 'ACome Over to Our House," by Marriyan and Joseph Hayes, was a three act comedy which portrayed the troubles and the hectic life of a typical American family. In order to become a member of this worthy organization a student must prove his ability by preparing and presenting a short dialogue as a tryout either in the fall or spring when these opportunities arise. If he doesn't pass in this first attempt, he may try again. Club meetings are held the second Thursday of every month. At these meetings short skits and dramatizations are presented in order to give the members stage experience. They also learn acting techniques and vroduction angles through constructive criticism. The meetings were calle together and conducted by Helen Zeh, president. Martha Benton, the vice president, presided in Helen's absence, Charlotte Gallaher recorded the minutes, and Leila Hamilton handled the financial affairs. Miss Ruth McKennan was the sponsor and adviser of the group.

Producers Curtain Call Production has a larger membership than any other one club. It is not a social organization but rather a service club dedicated to the school. In order to gain membership an individual must attend several lectures pertaining to the stage and its properties given by older members. Then the tests based on these talks must be passed. The club meets semi-monthly to discuss problems that arise during the staging of a play.

Designers The Art Workshop is composed of those students who are interested in any phase of art Work and Wish to do recreational projects outside of class. The club, under the guidance of Mr. Kenneth Kuemmerlein, has proved its success by the many activities it has undertaken and carried out throughout the year. The only requirement for membership is the student's real interest. Weekly meetings are held.each Wednesday after school in the Art room, and members may work any other time during their leisure periods. The range of work is proved by the various mediums the students work in. The most popular include metal Work, clay modeling, chip carving, leather tooling, sketching and painting. Advertising posters for the various dramatic presentations are designed by this group and movies depicting the works of numerous well-known artists are carefully studied. Outside speakers are frequent features of the club meetings. The organization is regulated by a board of direc- tors consisting of Jeanne Thibodeau, president, Margaret Schultz, assistantg and Jack Nygren, treasurer. The other board members are Bud Kinnard, lris Kippenhan, Bob Koehler, and Marilyn LeMoine. Page 92 l Jack Nygren admires the art exhibit. Back raw: Schabow, Geenen, K.

With Full Voices The Chorus of Appleton High School is generally regarded as a very successful and highly esteemed organi- zation. The spirit, cooperation, and devoted allegiance of the songsters have made the fame of the daily singing classes wide-spread for their enjoyable, as well as profitable, sessions. Actually there are two choruses. A smaller group, consisting of about forty female voices, meets during the first hour in the chorus basement. This group, although composed primarily of sophomores, is nevertheless privi- leged in having its share of upper-classmen. This assemblage of students not only sings but also receives instruction in the fundamentals of music, For example, at one time they were required to identify the themes of each of the four movements of Tschaikowsky's Pafbetique Symphony. These exercises give them not only a knowledge of some of the classical works, but a good musical background too. The better-known ninety-voice mixed chorus congregates each morning between nine and ten o'clock. The best known of a number of vocal contributions of the year was undoubtedly "The Chimes of Normandy" by Planquette, an operetta even topping last year's M. S. Pinaforef' Given by the latter group, its success was deeply signihcant of the time and effort so willingly given by the participants. Had one been a member of a certain hilarious party journeying to Green Bay to attend a concert, he would have heard "Ding Dong" and other familiar choruses previewed. Another important event of the year was the participation of the mixed chorus in the Wisconsin Music Festival this spring at Menasha. The chorus presented its outstanding soloists, ensembles, quartets, duets, and glee clubs. They competed against repre- sentatives of nine Fox River Valley schools, and Appleton took its share of the honors. The entire chorus itself took one of the two Firsts in the class A T competition. The competent, respected, and very popular director of both groups is Miss Marian Gerlach. As A she laughingly says, "The strength of the chorus is 7 probably stimulated by the raisins eaten by many of Miss Gerlach puts the girls' chorus through its paces. the members-U Page 93 ' Back Row: Faas, Bunks.

Strings Supreme If you have ever been anywhere near the music room during the third hour, you have heard the orchestra of Appleton High School playing the familiar strain of the "Fugue in G Minor," by S. Bach. This number has been a frequent warm-up piece with the orchestra in its regular morning rehearsals. The strings have met each morning without the winds and brass to practice, not only their orchestra music, but also the string ensemble works with which they have entertained many private and civic functions and church gatherings. Miss Constance Clark directs this organization. Among the varied selections for strings which they have performed are: "Pastoral Symphony" from the "Messiah," by George Frederick Handel, "Holiday for Strings," by David Rose, and "Our Waltz," by the same composer. Early in the year, this ensemble assisted the girls of the first hour chorus in a half- hour radio broadcast. This program was built around a Stephen Foster theme, and the chorus and orchestra joined in performing a number of his pieces. The woodwinds, brass and percussion rehearsed with the strings each Wednesday at the special noon re- hearsals. The full orchestra combined with E the band and chorus in the annual Christ- ' ' A K mas concert. Its program included the following numbers: "It Came Upon a Mid- night Clear," by Sullivan, "Jingles," by Zamecnik, and Gounod's "Nazareth" Perhaps the most important season for the orchestra has been the spring, - I because then they submitted three im- portant performances. The first was play- ing for assembly in mid-April. Secondly they played on the Spring Benefit Concert, given by the music department of Appleton High School. Finally came the most im- portant and climaxing event of the year, the music festival in Sheboygan on May 8. Ten schools participated in this tourna- ment, and numerous soloists were entered .. , Compeuuvely' The string section has a noon rehearsal.

Its apparent capacity has been tested and proven by the ovations it has received at its numerous appear- ances on various programs in 1948. E. C. Moore was the competent director, and trained his pupils not only in music, but also with a background in social discipline. The minute he stepped onto the podium the members of the band were at attention and awaited his signal to start. An important feature of the band schedule was the sectional rehearsals held each noon. Every section met once a week. At Christmas the band participated in the annual concert given with the orchestra and chorus. A similar concert, also with the orchestra and chorus, was presented in the spring. The proceeds from these benefit con- certs went to the Music Mothers of Appleton High School to aid in sending the three musical organizations to the annual music festival at Sheboygan in early May. This year the band was very well represented at the festival, not only as a whole but in solo and ensemble work too. There were about thirty such entrants. The band played two compositions at this event. The first was "Finlandia," by Jan Sibelius. The second was an impressionistic work reflecting the violent pace of modern life, "Headlines" CA Modern Rhapsodyb by Carleton Colly. In January the band broadcast a Wisconsin Centennial Program. The music played on this broadcast was written by contemporary Wisconsin composers in honor of our centennial year. Also this year, the Wisconsin Bandmasters Convention was held here, and Mr. Moore, the out-going president, planned the program. The high school band played in collaboration with the Junior High Honor Band, and the Lawrence College Band. The various members of the bandmasters association acted as guest conductors for individual numbers on the pro- gram. As a finale to the first portion of the concert the chorus joined the band in the singing of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," by Peter Wilhousky. A regular feature in the band program is its trips to the three iunior high schools of Appleton, where entertaining programs are played for the youngsters. The mentioning of the Pep Band must not be omitted here. Credit is due to each member who gave his time to this cause, as its playing at the football and basket- ball games was an important morale builder. Sonny Meltz devoted his time as leader of this indispensable group. Our high school band is undoubtedly a successful r fr organization, and we hope it will continue to keep up Clarence Meltz directs the Pep iBand for a student pep session. the high Standard it HOW euloys' Page 95 UPPER PICTURE, standing: Zierke, Cary, Koleske, Olson, Gieschen, Olson, Fiellcow, Crowe, Kraus, Wells, Beelen, Ballard, Kasten, Thibodeau, Ney, Boettcherg seated: Knoke, Matz, Gallaher, Austin, Williams, Doerfler.

To become a member of the "Tally" staff one must show outstanding work in English, and a keen interest in journalism. A lot of outside school time must be given to the work the Tally requires, so the stu- dent must be on his toes in his daily class assignments. The paper is always open for new talent from the student body. Under capable leadership of editors Ed Holtz and Delores Gelbke meetings are held every Tuesday. Other staff leaders are Lynn Casper, feature editor and Jack Prib- now and Don Wolff, co-sports editors. The success of the paper depends not only on these fine leaders, but also on the work- manship of all the vvriters. The Tally is advised by Miss Marjorie Williams and Mr. E. John Goodrich.

Book Balancers Much of the success of the Talifmfzn depends upon the hardworking advertising and business staffs. In order to produce a school paper it is necessary to have the patronage of Appleton businessmen who advertise in the paper. It is up to the advertising staff to solicit ads. Louise Worchesek, assisted by Ruth Goldbeck, directs this staff. The duties of the business stali' are numerous. The staff supervisor is Dorothy Spilker, assisted byjoyce Kriplean. The circulation staff is under the leadership of Betty Wiegand and Jean Thibodeau who distribute "T4lb1J" to the homerooms. All three business staffs are advised by Mr. Bruno Krueger.

During the dog days of August when every one was relaxing in the Warm sunshine or taking a quick dip in a refreshing pool of water, the editors and adviser of the Clarion editorial staH were already hard at work planning and organizing the Appleton High School '48 yearbook. September and the beginning of school found the staff decided on the main theme, the State Fair, With this Bob Barlament, Sally Schaefer,'Marty Benton, and Erik Madisen solve a weighty yearbook problem. Page 98 thought in mind, conferences with the engravers and printers, and photographers were held. As soon as assignments were given out, the writers hopped around school collecting the needed information to Write the articles. With the idea of the State Fair theme in mind the artists gathered their paint brushes and palettes and sketched the cute little cartoons and caricatures you can see scat- tered through the book. Taking the formal pictures of the clubs, teams, and organizations of Appleton High School is not the only task of the staff photographers. They also must take informals of typical school life, snap the games, assemblies, student council dances, and other student activities. Try-outs for all three branches of the editorial section of the Clarion writing, photography, and art are held in the fall. Candidates submit samples of their ability, and the chosen students are placed under a department head. This year's Clarion was under the direction of an edi- torial staff with Martha Benton as editor-in-chief, Sally Schaefer, organizations editor, Erik Madisen, events, Warren Belanger, classes, and john Kloehn, sports. and also sold subscriptions along with the other members. 191.

Early in the school year the staff head, veteran solicitors, and promising new members get together and plan the year's work. After subscribers of previous years have been assigned to the various students, the students proceed to ap- Iproach these business men and townspeople hoping that they will again support the book. They met with a earty response again this year. Membership on the staff is gained when a student has acquired ten sponsorships. The staff reports to Miss Eliza- beth Plowright, faculty adviser, for a meeting once a week. Two social events are outstanding on the organization's :alendar. They are the Christmas party and the spring pic- nic when frivolity prevails. The staff this year was headed by five competent girls. ois Madsen and Pat Patience, co-sponsorship managers, ook charge of assigning names to be solicited, checking on the responses of each member, and classifying the con- racts as they came in. Beverly Brehmer, business manager, ept the complete double ledger of all receipts and expen- ditures. Eileen Luedtke was in charge of circulation and was responsible for the collection of payments received through the mail. Janis Weller, subscription manager, supervised the circulation of the yearbook in the spring he leadership and reliability of these girls have been an incentive to the new members to carry on in a like fashion i , n the coming years.

A Way Wlith a Pen The Edward Weismiller Chapter of Quill and Scroll is the only active honorary society in Appleton High School. The national organization was founded on April 10, 1926 by Dr. George Gallup. The Appleton chapter is named in honor of an outstanding Appleton High School graduate who has made his mark as a poet of note. i Students who show outstanding ability and originality on either the editorial or business staffs of the Clarion or the Talisman, high school publications, are recommended for membership in Quill and Scroll by their faculty advisers. The candidates must also be in the upper third of their class scholastically to be eligible for membership' Officers are elected in the spring of the year to serve for the following year. The president's office was filledj this year by Louise Worehegekg B111 Leonard was vice-president, Lois Madsen secretary, and the treasurer was, Pat Patience. l Meetings are held on the third Monday of each month. Programs this year included talks on college entrance problems presented by Mr. Marshall Hulbert, admissions i director of Lawrence College, and contemporary poetry by Professor John Hicks of the English department at Lawrence. Miss Borghild Anderson, one of the club's -i advisers, gave an enlightening and entertaining talk on her last summer's trip to Norway. Mr. Prank Pechman, a ml H local photographer, told about photography's part in making an interesting and successful yearbook. The traditional Christmas musical was given in the form of a diversified program. The mothers of the members and the club's advisers were invited as special guests. Patterns of Star Dust is a major project of Quill and Scroll. This creative writing booklet, which publishes the best student short stories, poems, essays, translations, book reviews, and illustrations, is made possible through the cooperation of the English, language, art, and printing departments. Members of Quill and Scroll are in charge of sales, advertising, editing, and proofreading. Each member receives as a part of his membership a subscription to the society's national magazine. In it are articles which aid and develop the students' interest in journalism and allied fields of Creative work. Miss Anderson is the active Club adviser.

Film Fiends Last fall the football season brought Appleton High not only the first undefeated team in the conference, but also the first camera club. Because of an ambitious group of boys vvho took pictures at the games, an unorganized club developed into the Appleton High School Camera Club. "To increase and improve proper handling of photo- graphic equipment, to give constructive criticism on photog- raphy" is the motto of every member of this recently- established organization. Every other Tuesday found the club members and their temporary adviser, Miss Ruth Mielke, discussing techniques, taking pictures, conducting a business meeting, listening to a speaker or seeing movies or slides. The initiation party, which was held after spring vacation, and various contests were the high lights of the year. These contests, which any student could enter, were subdivided into different classes of photography such as people, Work and play, pets, and still life, to oHer every contestant a subject he favors. The Winners received awards, and the prize pictures were exhibited for the public. The students elected to fill the offices were John Cridelich, president, Delmar Desens, vice-president, and Jim Coley, secretary-treasurer.

Mike Mad The use of audio-visual education methods has increased by leaps and bounds at Appleton High School. On very important phase of the audio program is the production of a radio program by a group of students known a the Radio Players. This group consists of students drawn from the social studies classes, speech classes, Curtain Call, and forensic s groups. Mr. Kenneth Sager is the director of the players. Q To the many listeners of the Fox River Valley, these parting words of the announcer are familiar: "Be sure tc tune in next Thursday evening at seven-thirty when yo will hear the Radio Players present a comedy . . . ove station WHBY. Goodnight." The chorus of Appleton Chimes of Normandy" on one program. In these days of international crises, what could be more suitable than the views of our future citizens on peace? A round table discussion on this subject was the theme of one program. A closely related topic, "How Can Social Tensions Be Reduced in a Modern Democratic Society?" was presented on tolerance. A rich galaxy of other entertainment awaited a spin of the dial on programs of the series. Tense voked laughter, and of course drama entertained its followers. Choral, orchestral, and band music soothe the music lovers. A hearty well-balanced diet wa provided this past year by the Radio Players fo Appleton area residents.

S they begin to tire ofthe host ofevents, entertainment, and exhibitions, the students of Appleton High School slowly make their way to the judging stand where they find the climax of the year's efforts. Taking their seats among the cross-section of American youth they await the final weighing of the all-important events. Con- testants in the language, science, athletic, and citizenship fields are all judged fairly and the tabulations are made. A breathless silence precedes each announcement, a shattering round of applause follows each. As typical members of an average Ameri- can high school we rejoice with those who receive these honors and resolve to improve ourselves to be good leaders and followers of the world.
