ARE You WITH ME?
Five, ten, fifteen years from now probably social, school, and civic affairs will be going strong
in Arbor Vitae and Woodruff.
Someone will be taking the place of Arthur in such matters.
Harley, Fred, Georgia, James, Edith, Earl, Kate, and others will be turning community duties
over to someone else.
To Arbor Vitae-Woodruff students now in school.
So, Freshies, Sophs, Juniors, Seniors:
Un your marks!
Be ready when they say HGOU!
The world today, probably more than ever before, needs men and women of knowledge and skill
and, what is more, the courage and faith to face life squarely, with determination to make this a better
place in which to live for themselves and their children. No doubt many of the unsolved problems We
now face will be solved by the young men and Women in our schools today. These young men and
Women, not the atom bomb and armaments, are the guarantors of our countryls future peace and hap-

- THE LOG W
Students who consider their lot a hard one have but to examine the tasks assigned to the educa-
tional administration to revise speedily their conception of hardships. If the position of class officer is
deemed exaction, compare it to the endless responsibilities which compose the places held by our princi-
pal, grade advisors, faculty, and other officials.
Heading any Woodruffite is, of course, Mr. Wilbur Hagen on whose sturdy shoulders rest the
care of school affairs. Qther aides to lighten Mr. Hagenls burden are the class advisors, our secre-
tary at the office, and our school board.
With such leadership, the faculty has inspired and guided Woodruff students to seek choice jobs
and to continue on through the doors of knowledge.
Yet, even with all their various duties, many ambitious teachers are not satisfied with simply
instructing their regular classes. They assume the additional tasks of being advisors for the classes,
sponsoring clubs, and heading our paper. Without the willing assistance and cooperation of the
faculty, our semi-monthly publication and clubs would not be able to function. The students are grate-
ful for the time, energy, and effort the teachers have spent in making their classes popular.

Mrs. Knickelbein, lwrs. Clay Klr. Lyons, llr. VVoods
Have you ever wondered at one time or another what makes a clock tick, but how many times
have you stopped to think about What makes the school tick? There are furnaces to be fired, students
to be fed, halls to be swept. Who is responsible for attending to these tasks? They are the men and
Women of the business administration, of course!
The lunch room, for instance, is carefully and expertly managed by Blrs. Knickelbein and her
assistant, Mrs. Clay. They see to it that the school cafeteria serves good, wholesome food to furnish
energy for our eager, growing boys and girls.
Then think for a moment, how long would students be able to endure the cold if there were
no janitors to Hre the furnaces, or how long could one wade through the drifts of paper that would
accumulate in the halls if the janitors were to leave?
"Doc" Lyons and his assistant, hir. VVoods, who just came to AV-XV this year, are responsible
for keeping the boys and girls warm and keeping the school clean.
Then, have you ever wondered how all the children would get to AY-VV if it weren't for the
bus drivers, who do such a good job of bringing the children to and from school.
So, let's give a "Hip, Hip, Hooray" for the work they do making :XY-XV a better school.

LIN KOLS DISGROWELS
We all have the privilege of going through High School at one time or another. Everyone
can pass through eight grades fwe hopej, and Linkols Disgrowels Wrandvangilmolkets Cwe shall call
him Linkie for shortj was no exception. Linkie was an ordinary little boy with a crew cut, glasses,
and a big smile for everyone except the teachers and the other little boys. He was a smart fellow-
well, at least he could read Well enough to copy someonels paper. The eighth grade wasn't hard for
him, no sir, he studied nearly every night-well, fnyway his book was in front of him-so was the
little brunette next door. His mother and dad told him that he was going to college, but he didn't
want to think about it, after all, it was so far away. He had better things to think about. for in-
stance, Linda, the little brunette next -door. 'Well, spring came and so did graduation.
Summer passed very quickly, and then came fall. Linkie fell right into high school the
stumbled over the hrst step as he walked inj. We l, now that he was a Freshman he could choose his
subjects, he thought fha, ha, wait till he finds outj. ln the classroom he was told that he must take
English, Science, and Geography. He could choo'e one other subject. Everyone seemed to pick on
him now that he was a "Freshie". What did he -fo to deserve this? He had been good all his life
and had done nothing drastically Wrong, hmmm! The Seniors initiated him. The subjects weren't
too hard, and he went to a lot of football games and parties. Naturally, Linda was always with him,
but it seemed to him that she was keeping an eye on one of the Sophomore boysg he had better treat
her better, he thought. Well, spring had rolled around again, and he sprang right into the Sopho-
more class with all the characteristics of a baby elephant.
All summer he worked hard and saved money faithfully. This year he could laugh at the poor
little "Freshies", and that he did. He still didn't have much choice in his subjects. but he under-
stood now that they were put in especially to make him squirm. School rolled along smoothly, and
Linkie was getting along fine. He liked all his 'teachers and was getting good marks. He still rt-
tended a good many parties. He went alone, for Linda had finally snagged her Junior fellow. He
was beginning to look much better now, his hair had grown out, and he had added a couple of inches
to his height. ln early spring they had ordered their rings, he looked forward to getting his in the
fall of the next year.
Well, another year rolled around, and he was a Junior. He felt very good, for this summer
Linda had broken off with the other fellow, and they were going together again. Another thing which
made him feel very good was that his fellow classmates had chosen him as the class president. and
that meant he would be Prom King, Everyone knew who would he his Queen. ln November they
all got their class rings. He didn't keep his very long, Linda soon had it. ln spring everyone had
"Junior Promn fever, and thoughts of it were all over school. The gym was the center of all this
commotion, and the Seniors seemed to be getting quite a charge out of it. They criticized it and said
that it Wouldn't work. Well, they would show them, and show them they did, for the Prom was a
grand affair., everyone had a wonderful time.
Now, he was a Senior, and he had the pleasure of torturing the poor Freshmen. Now. he
seemed to have pity on them. He had a great many things to think of, for he was again the president
of the class. The class started to plan the annual, and Linda was the editor. Everyone knew that
Linda and Linkols would lead the Senior -:lass with dignity. They decided to have their pictures
taken in November so they would have them by Christmas. By January everyone was in a dither
about the class play. Linkols and Linda had small parts in it, for they were not good enough to take
the leading roles. By March Linda had the annual sent out, and she could rest awhile. The class
had their gowns paid for, and graduation was very near. They didn't have school the last week.
At the class picnic everyone had a grand time. Class night came and went and then Graduation. It
was an honor to get his diploma, for some of his friends had dropped out. He knew that they would
be sorry now. Linkols was sorry to be out of school for he had learned a lot and enjoyed the social
life the school had offered at the many parties.
High school was only the beginning, for now in order to be a good lawyer, he must go to col

My Most Embarrasing Experience
It was a cold, winter morning, and very early when I was dynamited out of bed at my uncle's
hunting shack. II gathered up my weary body from the floor and feebly wondered what had caused
this outrage. Then I remembered. We were supposed to go rabbit hunting.
After we had answered the need of inner man, we plowed our way into the brush and entered
The swamp-what a horrible place to spend a morning. I donlt have anything in particular
against swamps. As far as I'm concerned, swamps can go their way, and I'll go mine. But, when-
ever we come in contact, I develop a dislike for swamps.
We spread out and settled down to wait for the dogs to scare up a rabbit. Suddenly, I heard
a howl, and one of the dogs swept by. Gut of the brush a rabbit hopped. He hopped within two
feet of me, sat down, and started to chew a leaf. I released the safety. Bly gun didn,t go off. Again
and again I tried-no luck. Finally, the rabbit left. They tell me I had buck fever.
This is a story of f'Me". The reason I write about "lVIe'l is because "llc" is the most fascin-
ating person in the world. Ch, "Me,' doesn't like 'fMell too much!!!
Let us turn time back to the date, December I-I, 1930. The scene is a small apartment in Blil-
waukee, Wisconsin. As we enter the room this is what we see. A man's face is green, and it isn't
with envy. A woman, who has passed out from exhaustion or fright, is lying on the floor. The
police have arrived and have taken the man away.
Qver in the corner, we see a little baby's crib. Let us lift back the little blue cover. XVHAT
IS THAT THING????' QUICK BRING A Srosmcn PUMPH!! lt is none other than "Me".
The man that they carried away was Ulkiel' 's father. The woman was "ble" 's aunt.
Just think what the poor mother has to face the rest of her life. hlaybe it would be better it
we just hit her over the head with a hammer before she awakens.
At the age of five, "Me" started to notice girls. In fact, "Me" liked one girl very much. She
was in the first grade at the time. Being the romantic type "Me" asked her to marry him. "He"
said that they could live in the chicken coop. The rooster wouldn't mind, so "Me" said. The answer
was UNO". It almost broke his heart.
As "Me" grew older, he showed possibilities of becoming a politician. "ble" knew the only
way to make money is to jip the public.
When "IVIe'l was six years old, he decided he needed more money at his command. So he went
from neighbor to neighbor gathering bits of news from each. He was now ready to start his cam-
paign. Over to Mrs. Brown's house he would go as fast as his big feet would carry him. Hllrs.
Brown, do you want to know what Mrs. Smith raid about yon? If you do, give me a dime." "KIe"
made more monev that way.
From then on "Me" seemed to be a normal boy, then at times he has us fooled. "Me" is
rapidly growing into manhood. It looks like someday he might even become President of the I'nited

Well, we are at last the progressive class of 1948. Who would think to look at us now, that
four years ago we were green Freshies entering the Portals of Higher Education. Today we are
polished young men and women.
When we entered in September, 1944, we were all looking forward to the new opportunities
that higher learning would give us.
The members of our class that year were: William Anderson, Roland Bakemeyer, Florence
Behn Rita Beller, Sallv Birkholz, Thomas Brown, Jean Buck, Orlando Chada. Donna Eschenbauch,
Edith Gehrke, Willard' Hagstrom, Bernice Haling, Donald Harris, Robert Kassien, Robert Knapstein,
Paul Knickelbein, Carol Melang, Norris Oxley, Doris Rudolph, llarjorie Sawyer, Patsy Schuman,
Janet Stewart, Velna Yocum, Jean Young.
When we chose our class oHicers we thought we were very much grown up as it was the first
thing of any importance that We had undertaken, and our first step toward being adults. Our officers
were: President, Norris Oxley, Vice President, Robert Kassien, Secretary, Rita Beller, Treasurer,
Orlando Chada, Student Council, Thomas Brown and Jean Young.
In 1945 we were the great Sophomore class. A few of our classmates left us that year. Jean
Buck, Patsy Schuman, Roland Bakemeyer, Jean Young, and Orlando Chada. The new members who
came to join our ranks were Betty Hartman from New Paris, Ohio and Opal Fellenz from VVest
We again elected class officers. This time they were: President. Sally Birkholz, Vice Presi-
dent, Thomas Brown, Secretary, Norris Oxley, Treasurer, Carol hlelang, Student Council, Janet
Stewart, and Robert Knapstein.
When we became Juniors in 1946 we were very enthused over getting our class rings and
preparing ourselves for the following year when we were to become Seniors.
There were more new students who entered our class that year than left it. In fact there
were six new members and only two left us. The new students were: Dorothy Swanson and Eris
Ochmann from Chicago, Marioti Urewsen from Wisconsin Rapids, Theodore Kuehl from the Navy,
Anita Lehman from Rhinelander, and Verdaine Sosseur. Orlando Chada again returned to our Claw
and left at the end of the year. Those who left us were: Bernice Haling and Florence Behn.
Our class officers that year were: President, VVilliam Anderson, Vice President, Robert Knap-
stein, Secretary, Norris Oxley, Treasurer, Carol hlelang, Student Council, Sally Birkholz and Thomas
In the fall of 1947 after three years of hard work we had obtained our goal and had become
the Senior class of AV-W.
This year three of our classmates left us, they were: Anita l.ehman, who went to llilwau-
kee to go to school, Verdaine Sosseur, and Velna Yoeutn. The new students to join us were: hlarilyn
Sass, from Milwfaukee and Jayne lVlargitan from Park Falls. Marilyn left after the first semester of
our Senior year.
When we began our Senior year we knew this would he our last. Also we knew we were the
ones to initiate the Freshmen class, and initiate them we did.
When we started in the fall we looked forward to eonnneneernent day, but as it drew nearer
there were those among us who were not so anxious to have it come.
mf' THE LOG WJ
For the last time we elected our class officers who were: President, Norris Oxley, Vice
President, Robert Knapstein, Secretary Jayne Margitan, Treasurer, Dorothy Swanson, Student Coun-
cil, Sally Birkholz and Thomas Brown.
We had only three of our classmen in the football squad this year, but we are proud of them.
They were Thomas Brown, Norris Oxley, and Robert Knapstein.
Two of our Classmates, Dorothy Swanson and Thomas Brown, were chosen for the Pepsi-
Cola Scholarship tests.
There are twenty-two students leaving AV-W this spring, to go out to different walks of
Iifeg some of us are going on to college, some to good jobs, we hope. There may be some who will
enter into happy wedlock. The members of our class are: William Anderson, Rita Beller, Sally
Birkholz, Thomas Brown, Marion Drewsen, Donna Eschenbauch, Opal Fellenz, Edith Gehrke, Wil-
lard I-Iagstrom, Betty Hartman, Robert Kassien, Robert Knapstein, Paul Knickelbein, Theodore
Kuehl, Eris Ochmann, Norris Oxley, Jayne Margitan, Carol Melang, Doris Rudolph, Marjorie
Sawyer, Dorothy Swanson, and Janet Stewart.
We may be leaving AV-W, but our hearts and minds will always be with our school. We
all want to thank our estimable teachers and our fine principal, for the patience and fortitude they
have shown with us. Whatever we may become, we can thank AV-W.
One cool, windy night, when the moon was peering out between low, scudding clouds down
through the branches of the ghostly trees, I became lost in an old woods. As I stumbled through
the tangled undergrowth, I seemed to hear a faint, eerie voice calling me on. I Hnally arrived at an
old cave which I timidly entered. In the center of the cave there was an old cauldron which was half
filled with water and the eerie voice told me to ask what I desired. So I asked the cauldron what it
could tell me about the futures of the class of WIS". As I asked the question, the water in the cauldron
began to glimmer and boil, and I gazed into the future.
The first news is sad. Paul Knickelbein and Bolz Knapstein are only fond memories. They
have shot each other in an argument over who had short-changed the most customers for that week.
Another bit of sad news is the death of Bill Anzlerron. A box of Wheaties fell off the shelf at the
Woodruff Mercantile and crushed him to death.
Some of the class has been more fortunate. Norris Oxley is president of the large grocery
concern known as Oxley, Oxley, and Oxley Inc. One of their biggest customers is lllfzrion Drewsen
who owns and operates the largest string of resorts in the north woods. Her chief hostess is Opal
Fellenz who has surprised everyone by losing her timidity.
Rim Beller is now living in Chicago where she operates the Beller Meat Packing Plant. Ac-
cording to the society column written by Eris Ochnmnn, Miss Beller is about to announce her third
engagement to Tom Brown who is head bartender at Ted Kuelzlk "The Longest Bar in the Worldw
night club. One of Ted's most colorful waitresses is Doris Rudolph who dishes out quite a line to
the cash customers.
Dorothy Swanson has opened a beauty shop where she practices on Carol lllelang and Janet
Stewart, the two leaders of society.
Another up-and-coming business man is Willard Hfzgstrom who has taken over the Fuller
Brush Company. One of his salesmen, Bob Kossien, was recently acclaimed the perfect example of
a Fuller Brush salesman.

Elinor, the oldest daughter, is married to Merle Potter, an explosive young man who packs up
and leaves on the slightest provocation, knowing only too well that Elinor will come after him before
he gets to the bus and beg him to come back hom
Gladys, the middle daughter, married' Edwin Westrate, a poor radio technician. They are sure
that Gladys' Wealthy Aunt Cynthia will send them a thousand dollars for a Wedding present, but are
surprised when a package arrives from the aunt, and all they find in it is an antique lamp which, Cyn-
thia explains in her letter, will bring them luck when rubbed the right Way. Angry and discouraged,
Gladys gives the lamp to Allen for his junk collection.
Then Cynthia arrives and tells how she placed ten one hundred dollar bills inside the lamp.
Then the fun really begins!
The family runs around in circles trying to find the lamp. First the lamp is in one place . . .
then in another. Things get more and more confusing until the lamp finally turns up in a most un-
expected manner and brings a happy conclusion. BK

Mr. W. Hagen
to AV-W in hopes of starting a band. When
Two and one-half years ago Mr. Hagen came
he arrived, he indeed found a group who were interested, but who had little or no experience in
playing musical instruments. VVith so little material to start with, he worked very hard to establish
what is now known as the AV-W Band. The band has earned much credit under his management.
The band has represented the school at three music festivals. Several of the members entered
in soloist contests at these festivals and did a wonderful job.
Mr. Hagen has taken the band to Rhinelander to broadcast over station XVOBT this year.
They have also helped to make memorial parades in Flambeau and lVIinocqua a success.

The TTS was organized in 1946-7 and has continued in full swing this year of 1947-8.
ln 1946-7 the enrollment of this club consisted of about twenty-five members. lt was de-
cided that this club should not at any time have more than thirty-three members. lVIany students de-
cided they would like to join, but only the first applicants were accepted. These new members
were initiated in grand style.
ln this past year of 1947-8 several members were dismissed from the club for various reasons
such as failing to pay their dues or not attending meetings.
Several trips were taken by the TTS, and the members, 'lfield of Sciencen has increased much.
The Sniffers also presented a very enjoyable play in November entitled "Kay Beats the Band".
Having accomplished this much in two years, the TTS should really have a sound organization
in the future.
Four Seniors are leaving their places in this club to whomever is fortunate enough to fill them.

This year the Library staff has done much to make our library more attractive. Hand-colored
curtains have been put up, book jackets of the new books have made the walls more attractive, and a
lovely hanging, on which are mounted pictures of famous writers by Aurthor Lidov, hangs on one Wall.
New metal chairs and a new table also have been added this year.
Each member of the staff is required to spend at least one period a day in the library. They
see to it that everything is kept clean and help students in the library. They have had five social
meetings this year.
The staff has accessioned all of the books. They have sent books away to be mended and have
acquired about sixty new books. We are indeed fortunate to have had some fifteen books donated to
us from various sources.

W THE Loo fe
The sweetest 'lgaln of our great school
ls the Homecoming Queen, as is the rule.
She's five feet five with eyes that shine,
And the fellows say her figures fine.
Her one hundred twenty pounds, and blonde hair
Could not help but make our queen so fair.
She'11 be a Commercial artist if things go right.
Travel, as a hobby, is her delight.
Guy Lombardols her favorite for dancing slow,
But where there's chicken and french fries she's
sure to go.
Her heart belongs to well-mannered males.
And with foreign correspondence she never fails.
But all in all as you can see
Welre as proud of our Jayne as we can be.
So come on gang, strike up the band
And greet the prettiest girl in the land.
Give her the throne, and all that would seein
Proper and fitting for our Homecoming Queen!

The Homecoming King of our school this year
lt tops with all, that is cleat.
He's five feet nine with eyes of brown
Hels our boy--he'll wear the crownl
XVith weight one hundred and forty and blonde
Place the crown, students, place it with care.
He likes his sports, but that isnit his aim.
By being a business man ht-'ll win his tame.
He likes his music hor and fast
XVith llarry James there to blast.
Blondes and brunettes are his choice for girls.
'l'hey inustn't be niouthy and have pretty curls.
But now you'x'e all guessed that he's a boy thatis
So come on, give the King a rousing hand.
Hurry, NVoodruttites. the jewels do bring.
And crown our 'lied the Homecoming King!
Ml' THE LOG W
JUN IOR PROM 1947
The 1947 prom was sponsored by the junior class of that year and was considered a huge suc-
cess by all. The theme was 'lDeep Purpleu. The decorations varied from a lovely blue to deep
purple. The setting was a garden, with trellises entwined with beautiful, pastel roses. The lawn
chairs were set among banks of co'orful tulips. The subdued light cast shadows over the floor giving
the surroundings a moonlight effect. This all added to a very unusual and romantic scene. The
large crowd had a very enjoyable time.
King, Bill Anderson, and his lovely queen, Sally Birkholz, reigned over this gala event The
queen was dressed in a billowing white gown.
The soft, ultra-modern music was supplied by the Orl Polege orchestra of Tomahawk.
Qn Friday, the 12th of September, we saw the Freshmen girls clad in bathing suits over
long underwear, their dadys garters, long wool socks and heavy work shoes, only one side of their hair
put up, and make-up on only one side of their faces.
The Freshmen boys had to wear girls' shorts or their own swim trunks, rayon hose, one bed-
room slipper, and one high heeled shoe, make-up and earrings. To top it all, they wore ladies' hats.
All of the Freshies wore tails with a big green bow tie at the end. It was Freshmen Initiation!
Both boys and girls had to bow to the Seniors and repeat the oath:
' Hail, almighty Senior!
Thou shall be master hereafter!
After a morning of carrying the Seniors, books, the Freshmen, equipped with toothbrushes and
milk bottles of water, went to scrub the sidewalks on Main street. All of this provided a good laugh
for the rest of the students, but the Freshmen took it well. They found out that the Seniors certainly
had some fiendish ideas.
To repent for their sins, the Seniors held a party in honor of the Freshmen that evening.
More activities brewed as the Freshies played "leap frogm around the gym. Several of them didnlt
know how to spell HSENIORH in capital letters and as punishment, they had to find a penny with
their tongues in a pan of flour.
That day will never be forgotten either by the Seniors or by the Freshmen.
Colorful balloons, mistletoe, red paper bells, and pine boughs all added to make the Seniors'
Christmas party an enjoyable event. Strings of red and green Christmas cord were strung across the
gym. Where the strings met in the center, large paper bells hung. Tinsel and balloons adorned these
strings. The stage was decorated with red streamers and pine boughs. At either end stood Christmas
At the other end of the gym were a fireplace and a small tree with lights. The benches were
covered with red and green paper. For excitement, mistletoe was hung in the doorway. Everyone
seemed to enjoy himself very much at one of the most gala events of the year.
