Coach Karl Ulichny was in his first year as head coach, and his assistants were Russell Iaycox and Donald Disrud. The Elks were just below the .500 mark, as they won three games while losing five. Two of the three wins were at the end of the season, and thus you can see that the team was at its peak when finishing its schedule. Elkhorn opened its schedule against Walworth and came out on the short end of a 20-6 score. The locals then traveled to East Troy and easily won by a score of 26-12. The team next went to Lake Geneva for the first conference tilt and was beaten by a score of 25-13. The next game was also a conference game and the Elks played their worst game of the year, being defeated by a score of 40-6. Iefferson was the next stop for the local eleven and they lost 8-0 to the Rock Valley Champs. Next came the crucial game with Delavan. The game was fairly even in the first half, but the Comets showed too much power in the second half and won 19-O. The Whitewater game was to see who was to be in the cellar of the conference. The Elkhorn boys decided they weren't going to be and played their best game of the season in defeating the red and white 6-0 in the homecoming game. The final game of the season was played with the Delavan Deaf, and the Elks won 7-0. LETTERMEN D. Ellsworth Co-Captain, I. Walters Co-Captain, E. Sorenson, B. Belknap, C. Dunlap, L. Reid, C.

The football game with Whitewater was the keynote of the season, and even the weather could not dampen the spirits of the team and spectators. During the half Helen Watson was "'f ' ' f 1- ' wi r -.,, ,' ,- WM""'f,f,',Q,I., W " " .M r ,rf 'M l f 19 si , wt 4 3 4 ' r r crowned Homecoming Queen by May- or Thorson. She was attended by her court of honor, Margaret Lanser, Bev- erly De Voy, Isabelle Bronson, Ioan lVlcQuality, and Betty Clauer. The game became spectacular dur- ing the last two minutes when Robert Nitschke made a touchdown bringing Elkhorn through on top with a score of 6-U. Alumni and students made a great turnout for the dance that evening when Don Ellsworth was crowned Helen's king. Don had been chosen in the locker room by the football boys after the game because of his brilliant P C1Ymg. ,.

Athletic Program This year in Elkhorn we have an athletic council which rules over all major sports. This council is composed of the coaches of the sports, an elected member from each class, and the principal. Its duties include awarding of letters, making and enforcing training rules, and bettering the athletic program of the school. Elkhorn now has a thoroughly developed athletic program, taking in the grade school and the high school. Boys from the third grade up are taught the fundamentals of the various sports. This plan makes it much easier for the high school coaches, as the boys are already partially trained. In the high school there are four major sports in which the boys participate. These are football, basketball, baseball, and tennis. A boy rnust participate in one-third of the quarters, innings, or sets of football, basketball, baseball, and tennis to earn a letter. 1 www- """"'-su.. -...tb 'X COACHES xx Left to Right: Mr. lVlcNaughton, Freshman Basketball and Baseball: Mr. Ulichny, Football and Tennis: f X Mr. Iaycox, Basketball and I Football: Mr, Disrud, Second Team Basketball and Baseball I K FSA e " F ft , tl Q ' 'f ?

The team was eliminated from the Elkhorn Regional tournament when they were defeated by Milton Union by a score of 25-22. The Elks finished in the cellar of the Southern State Conference with two wins and six losses. The season, however, did have its high spots. On the night of December llth the Elks defeated the mighty Comets from Delavan. It was the first time in seven years that Elkhorn had been able to lick its keen rival. The game was won in the last few minutes of play when the Elks put on the pressure. The team had one of the strongest outfits in this part of the state, but lost many games in the last half by close scores. The season ended with four wins and thirteen losses. The Elks scored 399 points to 477 for the oppon- ents. Ioe Walters was high scorer for the season with 115 points. Sorenson followed with 82, Iones 73, and Belknap 55. Bottom Row: W.

QQ' Debate Club The Pros and Cons of all contemporary problems are brought up and discussed by Mr. Uh1's debaters during the half-hour club periods. Fiery remarks are directed at the opposition, and tempers are aroused as the negative and affirmative struggle with this year's question: Resolved--That a Federal World Gov- ernment Should Be Established. These students, through their experience in debate work, have acquired the technique of argumentation and have developed an alertness for current issues. f PROS AND CONS Affirmative Team Mr. Uhl H.

Declamatory and Oratory Those students taking part in serious, and humorous declamation, and oratory have received their training from Miss Ieanne Bennett and Mr. Paul Uhl. Through their experience in forensic Work, they have become better acquainted with good literature. The study of diction and pronunciation have aided the group in presenting their readings. Audience-contact and self-control have been developed in the after-school classes at which time all of their training has taken place. Seated: M. Lanser, C. MacLean, V. Cody, M. Williams.

Extemporaneous Speaking and Reading Mr. Paul Uhl heads the extemporaneous speaking group this year, and Miss Ieanne Bennett is in charge of the reading group. With the help of Mr. Uhl, the students have gathered much information on various subjects of current importance, which will be used as background material for their extemporaneous speeches. Not being able to prepare a definite speech ahead of time, the students, therefore, have become a well-read group on international affairs. Miss Bennett's readers have worked toward mastery in reading inter- pretation with emphasis this year on current news. 28 4 , s Q Bottom Row: C. Voght, B. Woodman, R. Nitschke. Second Row: C.

The Girls' Athletic Association The Girls' Athletic Association was founded by our former coach, Iack Beattie in 1940. A point system was established whereby the girls were given a definite number of points for participating in the various sports activities. Upon reaching the total of points required the girls receive a G.A.A. letter. The senior girls are required to have 900 points before receiving a letter and 1500 points for a medal. All members ot the other classes have to accumulate 1500 points for an "E" and 2000 points for a medal. Points are awarded for participation in soccer, volley ball, basketball, baseball, and bowling. The girls on the winning team receive 25 extra points plus the 100 points given for taking part in the sport. The 2nd place winners receive 20 extra points, members of the third team 15 extra points, and players in the fourth place group receive 10 extra points. Points are also awarded for participation in any of the other G.A.A. activities, such as hikes, ice skating, and tobogganing.

Vocal Music The vocal organizations of 1943 have carried on the tradition of good music in Elkhorn High. The A Cappella choir is the largest group consisting of forty-six members. The group has appeared very successfully in four concert performances. Miss Torhorst also has the direction of the Girls' Chorus. This group has been given rec- ognition for excellent tournament and concert performances. A smaller organization, in pre- paration for members in the choir and chorus, was formed this year. In order to give the boys and equal chance with the girls, a new organization, the Boys' Chorus, was started this year with assistance from Mr. Robert Schroeder. After Mr. Schroed- er left for naval duties, Mr. Lawrence Steidl took over the group. Although they did not go to the tournament they turned in several fine local performances. Time, effort, and talent combined have resulted in excellent vocal demonstrations. -mf 1 -V Girls' Chorus Seated: Miss Torhorst, D. Hart, C. Smith, I. Dunham, D. Harry, M, Enright, M. Ferguson, D.

International Club Miss Bennett, organizer ot the International Club, realized the necessity of closer contact with our foreign neighbors. Those be- longing to this educational club indulge in a study ot the different customs, sports, foods, and types of products typical of each indi- vidual nation, and people of for- eign lands. One of the chief aims of the club is to stimulate interest in the South American countries. Librarians The management ot our school library depends upon the capable work of our librarians. Perched upon their stools be- hind the counter, they charge the students with the many fine books and magazines our library posses- ses. Behind the closed door of the library, the librarians are kept busy recording new books and keeping the old ones in repair. Library science is being studied by several of the girls for credit towards graduation. The others work in the library during their free periods. Sealed: G. Kistler, D. Gums, N.
