May you, our readers, see in this book a picture
of the days we have all spent together in
Elkhorn High, days of work and play and days
of disappointment and triumph, and may you
have as much fun in reading The Elk as we of
the Staff have had in making it.
This book is affectionately dedicated to our
classmate, Shirley Nelson, whose absence be-
cause of illness has left a vacant place in
many a class and activity, a place not readily
filled. Although she will not graduate with
us and could not contribute to The Elk, we
want her to know that it is her book as well

What Happened To The Class Of '44
In the merry month of May in the spring of '54 my colleagues and I had a wild urge to return
to Elkhorn and see what our former classmates were doing. The war being over, we had plenty
of gasoline and tires to make the trip. L
As we reached the city limits a siren sounded and a police car drew up beside us. To our
astonishment we saw it was "ZlTCH" RIDGWAY, chief of police of Elkhorn, welcoming us back
to the scenes of our childhood pranks. We asked "Zitch" what NORMA BURNS was doing, and
he informed us that RENA LASCH and NORMA were in Hollywood resting after their third big hit
After leaving the chief we went in search of a lodging for the night. We decided to stay at
the Hotel Weaver, formerly the Loraine Hotel. We were met at the door by the owner GORDON
WEAVER, and found he was doing a prosperous business. .lust then MARY FERGUSON, his as-
sistant, popped in to show us to our rooms. When we had unpacked our bags we went in search
ofa beauty salon. Just down the street the "Do-Re Salon" caught our eye. Upon entering we
were greeted by the KARGES twins, LORRAINE and DOREEN. After a facial and manicure we said
goodbye to the twins. Outside, the aroma of food wafted on the spring breeze, sharpened our
appetites, and we were forced to make a decision. should we patronize The Villa or the Eat Shop?
We compromised and decided to have dinner at the Villa and to lunch at the Eat Shop the next
We walked into the Villa and IONE McKENZlE, Elkhorn's number one hash-slinger, came up
to take our order. As we were paying the bill we asked who had made the delicious pie. lone
informed us that our old classmate, HELEN PALENSHUS, had been chief cook and bottle washer
at the Villa for the past five years.
We left the Villa and thought we would bowl a game. RUTH SCHOENBECK and TILLIE
KOOPMAN were running the bowling alley as partners. They told us that the fact their business
was dropping off was explained by the competition of the pool hall across the street, owned by
BOB EISTEDT and CLARENCE THOMPSON. We found that our pin boy was Clarence Freitag Jr.,
son of our former classmate, the DEACON. His work proved iust as satisfactory as his father's
had. A wild yell issued from the next alley and we saw that the red head who had iust made a
strike was MARIAN ENRIGHT, another member of the class of '44,
We weren't surprised to see that RUTH IVES and DORIS HARRY were the other bowlers. We
greeted e 1 ther ioyously and on inquiring, found that the three were nurses at the Walworth
County Hos al and were spending their evening off duty in Elkhorn. They told us that we must
see the movie that was showing because DELORME GETCHELL, current screen idol, had the lead.
We arrived in time for the second show. The girl in the ticket office was BEULAH WOODMAN,
with a sparkling diamond on her left hand. We offered our congratulations and asked her who
the lucky boy was. She wouIdn't tell us his name but confessed that he was another member of
our graduating class. GLEN OLSEN, owner of the theater, greeted us at the door and took our
tickets. He told us that he had remodeled the building two years ago and the seating capacity
was now doubled. An usher came to show us to our seats and it was none other than BOB
KOONS. The movie was exceedingly good and we were very proudiof our old classmate,
Out on the street again, the gay lights ofthe "Juke Joint" caught our eye. We were glad
to find that the ice cream parlors and drug store stayed open until midnight, a great improve-
ment over the old days when we were in high school. We felt like having a double rich choco-
late malted and went in. The proprietor, BILL LUDTKE was behind the counter. He insisted
on treating us and led us to -a table. The girl who came to take our orders was DORIS
WARREN. Bill confided that she had been working for him for a year and was the best soda
ierk he had ever had.
By this time we were tired and the comfort of our hotel room was inviting. In a few min-
utes we were in deep slumber. A tap at the door awaked us next morning and Mary Ferguson
brought in our breakfast on a tray. We were eager to examine the tray and found a weekly
edition of the "Elkhorn lndependent", now edited by NANCY CORY. After breakfast and a
shower we decided to go out to the "Schneck Dairy Ranch." We had already heard about BOB'S
latest book entitled "Three Easy Ways to Milk a Cow." A drive in the country at this hour
of the day was most invigorating. As we progressed we heard the hum of airplanes. To our
right was the "Loupitz Airport." We drew up to the side of the road and watched a plane come
in for a landing. Pilots MARILYN OPITZ and DOROTHY LOUKOTA stepped out of the plane.
Our time was short so we speeded on. All of a sudden a boy dashed into our path after
a stray baseball. We swerved to miss him and struck a telephone pole. Luckily, we were un-
iniured, but the car was badly damaged. The frightened boy told us his name was Johnny
Pierce. Because of the resemblence we knew that he must be the son of GENE PIERCE, now
a prosperous farmer. We went into the farmhouse and called a garageman to come for our
car. When a wrecker arrived, who should be at the wheel but KEN KEHL. He told us that he
now owned the Standard Service Station. A farm truck came down the road and the driver
offered us a ride to Elkhorn. lt was another old schoolmate, DON BABCOCK. After a breath-
taking ride he deposited us at our hotel.
This eventful morning had gone fast and it was lunchtime. We had an enormous appetite
and hoped that the Eat Shop served good food. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw
who was running the place. lt was those three former sailors, GORDON REDENZ, DON EN-
RIGHT, and DANNY MILLARD. GORDON was the manager, DON did the cooking, and DANNY
took care of the money. They told us that this combination had been working fine for three
As we left the Eat Shop we felt that we should see a doctor for a check-up after our
accident. We walked along and saw the name Dr. ROBERT GETZEN, M.D., on a shingle. Well,
well, so BOB was a doctor, we'd have to go up and see him. He checked us over and declared
that we had not been iniured in any way. He also advised us to go and see ED CASEY if we
wanted a good lawyer. We weren't surprised that ED was defending people because he
always had liked to argue, but our insurance company would take care of the damages so we
had no need for Ed's services.
Back at the hotel again, everyone proceeded to write letters and cards. We walked to
the post office to mail them and JIMMY MILLER greeted us through the bars of the stamp win-
dow. It reminded us of the good old days when JIM used to deliver mail. As we turned to
leave, the door lettered Postmaster opened and a young woman came out. We couldn't be-
lieve our eyes, but it really was GLORIA SCHRAMEK, postmistress of Elkhorn.
The JONES' monument works was still situated next to the post office. TREVOR was lifting
a small tombstone as we passed by. He informed us that he had half interest in the business.
It seemed that he and BOB REED had a business agreement. BOB was running a funeral home
and the two professions worked very well together.
As we walked along we noticed the printing on a window which read, ISABEL BRONSON,
"Advice given in all matters." At last IZZIE had found an outlet for her ideas. We went in
and found her sitting behind a desk and looking very businesslike. lt seemed
only gave advice but also knew all the news in town. She told us we shouldn't
gram at the Municipal Building that evening, for there would be many important pe
That evening we went to the Municipal Building and found a seat in the theater. The mistress
of ceremonies turned out to be NANCY SELTMANN, who had been touring the country and
speaking to the Women's Clubs of America. With a snappy speech she introduced Elkhorn's
mayor, the honorable PHILLIP WELSH. He was the youngest mayor that Elkhorn had ever
elected. lt was rumored that the women's vote had put him into office. Judge JOE NEWMAN
followed the mayor with an inspiring speech in which he demanded a law to prevent heli-
copters from landing in the city park.
This concluded the serious side of the program and it was time for the big attraction.
WAYNE STEARNS and his All Girl Orchestra had been playing at the Riverside in Milwaukee and
had traveled to Elkhorn for this program. lt was quite an honor for the city because WAYNE'S
orchestra was in demand in the most exclusive night spots of the country. Singing with the
orchestra were the "Swing Sisters," better known to us as MARY ALICE ZWEIBEL, MARILYN
VOGLE, and JOANE HAMPEL. When the "Swing Sisters" finished several selections came the
featured attractions. ALICE McVICAR began to beat it out on the drums and WILMA SCHMIDT
and JUNE McCABE stepped into the spotlight to do their famous dance, "The Barrel House
Boogie." When the dance finished we took time to look over the other members of the orches-
tra. ELEANOR SCHULZ was slappin' the bass, BETTE ANNE BURNS was givin' out on a licorice stick,
NANCY BARTELSON was blowin' a mean trumpet, HILDA PAPENFUS was literally all over the
piano, and JUNE NEWMAN was playing a sweet sax. With all these accomplished artists we
knew why Wayne's band was such a success.
The program was over at eleven and we hurried to our hotel to pack, for the next day we
had to leave Elkhorn. We were up bright and early the following morning. GORDON brought
our car to the front of the hotel. As we drove away we were filled with satisfaction, for our
mission had been successful. The knowledge of WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CLASS OF '44 was ours.
