Mr. Lond Rodman, principal, contributed this bit of philosophy in the 1960-1961 Student Handbook which provides a suitable explanation of the educational program of Delnvan-Darien High School. His written address to the student body went as follows:
"The educational program of the Delavan-Darien High School is concerned with stimulating and motivating learning so that its students will possess the skills and knowledge necessary for a happy, useful, and successful life while they are attending high school and after their graduation from high school. In addition another essential part of the educational program is the development of interests, ideals, attitudes, and appreciations which will foster the spirit of American Democracy.”

-s. a j a
7r. m f
Although it is always heartbreaking to be so close and yet so far from the championship in any sport, we must say that this football season has been a successful one for the Comets. Our 5 1-1 record placed us third in the conference behind Badger and Whitewater who were tied with 6-1 records.
The worst break of the season came in the Whitewater game when Bob Greene suffered a dislocated hip. Although he played only 5 quarters. he was the Comets fourth highest ground gainer and third highest scorer.
Junior Bill Moyle led the team on the two most important departments, scoring and rushing. Bill scored 62 points on ten touchdowns and two extra points and was followed by Dick Wer-bel with 18 points and Bill Wagner and Greene with twelve each.
Moyle carried the burden of our running attack: all the rest of the Comets combined the ball 144 times and Bill carried 142 times and gained 667 yards. Wagner. Werbel, Greene, and Joe Bell followed in rushing.
Captain Mike Hayes was the leading pass receiver with six catches for 155 yards and one touchdown. He was followed by George Woodard and Chuck Anderson.
It became obvious that much of the heroics of the season took place in the line when Lon Liddlc and Ron Holsman were elected All-Conference. Other stalwarts in the line all year were Jim O'Donnell, Wayne Brown, Verylc Bridges, and Keith Klawes.
Our defense line, which did very well most of the year, was anchored by O'Donnell, Holsman. Liddle, and Woodard. Hayes and Werbel were the linebackers and after trying many boys, Darrell Stickney stood out as the most adequate middle guard. The defensive secondary consisted of Bell. Phil Lindloff, Wagner, and Moyle. The defense was helped many times by Klawes. Anderson. Phil Vinci, and Paul Shimkus.

The Girls' Athletic Association is happy that Mrs. Berkompas and Miss James arc willing to give their time Tuesdays after school, to supervise this organization. They are the teacher advisers.
Last May the GAA executive board (composed of the officers and advisers) nominated girls for this year’s officers. Winning the presidency was Myrtle Klaske. the vice-presidency was filled by Judy Danielson, Sandra Morgan was chosen as secretary, and Rachel Wile-man was given the job of point secretary.
This year the girls chose baseball as their fall sport. But the weather became much too chilly for them before the schedule was completed. Winter, not only brought snow and freezing temperatures, but it also brought basketball, to GAA at least. When spring rolled around, the outdoor sports again became popular.

As representatives of the school, the student council members have a job that is both a responsibility and an honor. Elected by the student body, it is their job to bring up the student’s views at the meetings and to vote according to what they think is best for them. As one can imagine, this is not the easiest job in the world at times.
In order to be eligible for election to student council the students must keep certain requirements such as maintaining a grade average of at least C‘.
This year the student council has run the canteen. sold student ID cards, sold book covers sponsored five paid assemblies, and performed many other services for the benefit of the students.

Journalism as taught in the high school is citizenship training, not vocational training. Motivated composition through the use of journalistic subject matter will be just as useful to future business men. teachers, lawyers, and secretaries as to future journalists. Since newspapers and other mass media have such powerful influence on our lives it is imperative that we all learn to read and listen diseriminately. High school journalism should teach the student to read the newspaper intelligently and thus support the better type of journalism by selecting newspapers, magazines and other publications with discrimination.

Behind the Scenes
These three pictures show the various backstage activities that take place In the final statics of a play before the “big night' .
Mr. Strassburgcr contributed his services in the scenery department. A successful play must have an efficient stage crew. Without Mr. Hoskins, the director, the play would not hove been possible. Of course the biggest essential for a production are the member of the cast. Everyone excelled In this orea. All in all the play was one everyone could Ik proud of.
The cast consisted of: Dino—Harold Olson. Tony—Don Beresh. Mr. Sheridan—Joe Bell. Mr Mandel— Ron Armantrout, Mr. Folcaro—Jim Foreman. Danny- Gene Mustln, Steve—Dave Koepnick. Shirley Sue Nauseda, Jackie - Margaret Fleming, Sylvia- Bonnie Bolt . Della—Lynn Gregg. Pat— Kheta Merrill. Miss Haines—Betsy Gibson. Mr. Mikula- Toni Kilkenny. Bea—Susan Gallagher, and Mr . Folcaro—Barbara Willard
The story was about a boy who ot the age of seventeen had already spent four years In reform school for a very serious crime. Dino’ brother at the age of thirteen hopes to become a miniature Dino. Mr. Mandel tries to help Dino before he becomes a full-pledged criminal by taking him to a psychotherapist, but Dino objects. In the end he Is finally launched on the path of self-understanding and rehabilitation.

As the largest class in the school (183) the Freshmen entered D-DHS in the fall of 1960 somewhat apprehensive and excited about the start of school. Soon they caught on to the schedule and rules of the school and became a part of it all.
Homecoming preparations soon began. Doris Glazik was elected homecoming representative for the freshmen with Bob O'Brien as her escort. "We'll Cook Their Goose" was selected by the float committee as the theme for the freshmen float and many freshmen began to work eagerly on the float.

106'61 ALUMNI RETU RN
By Evelyn Swcts Correspondent, Daily Times
Roads leading into Delavan were packed as the 1%1 alumni of Delavan-Darien Union High School were returning 20 years after graduation for a weekend filled with an Olde Timers' Homecoming. Arrangements for the busy three days were made by the former class officers and student council members. Fat Varoni. Karen Olsen, and Teresa DeWolfc contacted former classmates and informed them of the plans. Reservations for everyone were made at Lake Lawn Lodge by Kathy Bruce. Pam Woodford. Bob Speri. Tom Skelton, and Dick Ilallet.
Festivities began Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. sharp. Main Street was lined wth people as floats, built and decorated by alumni, passed by in the annual homecoming parade. Special recognition should be given to Sue Nauseda for the magnificent job she did in directing the building of the floats. She was assisted by Carole Ellis. Pat Good-ger. Judy Jordon. Nancy Lipps, and Joy Mover. Riding the floats were Chuck LeRette. Mike Me-Sorley. Joe Neumeier. Tim Chally. Jerry Stangler. Lillian Meyer. Shirley Kay Oberla. Irene Peters. Darlene Robb. Laverne VanDyken. and Nancy Vorpah!.
That evening at the Homecoming Game the Athletic Field was a bit foggy as the team did pregamc warmups. Bruce Cutting, who was doing the announcing, was hoarse at the er.d of the second quarter. Suiting up for the game were Joe Bell. Mike Hayes. Bob Greene. Ron Ilolsman. Veryle Bridges. George Woodard. Ixm Liddle, Jim O'Donnell. Keith Klawes. Wayne Brown. Richard Itoutellc. Irv Beier. Steve Mestan. and Jim Stur-tevant. The men in the faded blue and gold jerseys looked good as they boat the alumni of Elkhorn. 86 to 12. Donning their moth-eaten cheerleading uniforms were Bonnie Bolt . Rheta Merrill. Sandra Polasik. Sue Schipper. and LaVon Scholl. During halftime the homecoming queen was crowned. She and her court were driven onto the field by Don Beresh. Jim Foreman, and Harold Olson, all of whom are part-owners of a taxi service in Delavan. The queen's gown was from a dress shop run by Michelle Schcurell. Joyce Rieser. and Lynn Gregg.
After the game Carolyn Oliver invited the alumni to her house for a party. Everyone enjoyed food prepared by Betsy Gibson, dancing, games and talk:ng to old friends. This party proved to be a very successful ending to an exhausting day.
Saturday morning everyore was taken on a tour of the hallowed halls of D-DHS. Leading the tour were alumni who are back teaching. They were Donna Bellman (Chemistry), Barbara Will-aid (English). Ron Lonze (History). Mary Ann Seely (Spanish). Joan Smith (American Problems). Mary Ann Knight (Home Economics). Sandy Morgan (Trig), and Carol Wendorf (Latin). Few changes have been made around D-DHS in the past years. Several classrooms have been added and these were seen on the tour. The alumni were given a chance to watch Coach Gene Mus-
tin working out the school basketball team in the gym. and Alberta Krause rehearsing the synchronized swim club in the pool. Sheryl Craig. Margaret Fleming, and Judy Truckenbrod were also at the school working out physical fitness tests for the seniors. The tour was conducted by school nurse Sandra Thomas and golf coach Rolfe Egenes. The tour bi-ought back many memories to the former students.
Saturday afternoon the whole clan descended on the Boy Scout Camp nt Delavan Lake where Sue Deschner is hostess and Barbara Wilear cohostess. Former FHA members. Carol Wilkins. Sandy Steinbicer. Sally Roc , and Millie Hallberg cooked the meal.
That evening the commons area was filled to capacity as the alumni danced to the strains of music played by Frank DeVoy and his Royal Delavanites. Members of the Band were Chuck Anderson. Paul Francis. Larry DuBois. Art Zoell-ncr, Dave Koopnick. Jon Yungerman. and Patti Graber. Vocalist was Miss Myrtle Klaske. who gained her singing experience in two D-DHS musicals. The commons area was decorated with the theme “Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White”. Those who worked on the decoration were Becky Britt. Joyce Jones. Julie Rosenwing. Sue Gallagher. and Karen Glenn. Directing traffic for the dance were Fred Baun, Darryl Brewer. Jon Kemp-ken. and John Ritcher. who are all partners in a gas station. Food and beverages for the dance wore furnished by Butch Jones. Larry Lindloff. and Larry Busche. A welcoming speech was made by Leonard Logterman who is now running the YMCA. Other speakers were Ron Nordstrom and Jeff Olson who own a barber shop.

Judy Christiansen, Janice Los. Nathalie Alien, Beverly Yant, Joanne Delaney. I ouise Trott. Dorothy Mawhinney. Clarice Ix s. Diane Semmerling. Velma Hammerstrom. and Bernice Bartlet. Mary Kilkenny was given the Mother of the War Award. (Maiden names have been used for the sake of clarity.)
Sunday evenrg the class of '61 met for the final time in the school lunchroom for a banquet. The room was decorated in green and white, the class colors. The food, steak, baked potatoes.
