They con- sistently toresow our need and made both our elementary and secondary education possible. lt was through their earnest co- operation that these twelve years have been made productive, enjoyable, and worthy of remembrance. llllllllL llllilllll A very important element in any school system is that group of five public-spirited citizens technically called the school board. On their shoulders rest the responsibility of hiring the teachers, paying the bills, considering new ideas, eliminating some of the old, and, in general, seeing that the school is running smoothly. Their iob is one that requires lots of thought and work and very little thanks. The students would like to take this opportunity to extend their deepest appreciation and an earnest "thank you" 'to them. , ss:.x.S?EXY3ii.. 5 LELAND K. FORREST SUPERINTENDENT B.A. Eau Claire State Teachers College M.A. University of Iowa Additional study at Oshkosh State Teachers College and University of Wisconsin The success of a high school and the future of its students rest primarily upon the Superintendent. We have been fortunate in having a Superintendent who is always willing to give advice and who is interested in all of our activities. It is unusual to find a person with a good sense of humor, who is also an effectual disciplinarian when nec- essary. We, the class of " '45", wish to extend our sincere thanks to Mr. Forrest. if VICE PRINCIPALS E. GIESE D. DISRUD HELEN WARD, Secretary ELK STAFF .

JUNIOR CLASS Fifty-nine students enrolled as Juniors in the fall of 1944. When votes were counted after election, it was announced that Bill Seymour was victorious in campaign for president. Bill Morrissey received the office of vice-president, and Gertrude Hirn became keeper of records and money. Don Getzen was appointed Athletic Council representative and Ellen Tess cheerleader. The Junior 'class play, "Johnny On the Spot.", with Bill Seymour and Kay Thum carrying the leads proved to their audience that the Juniors were talented actors and actresses. The play was one of the high lights of the school year. Early in the school year the Juniors selected their class rings which are to be of one design. The rings are similar to those of the class of "45". ln November the Juniors sponsored the annual "Sadie Hawkins" dance which is becoming a tradition of the school. The Junior Prom of i945 was a huge success. The orchestra was Raye Block, a band which we have had before, and which now plays on numerous radio programs. The decorations were unique and cleverly carried out. The Grand March was very impressive, led by King Bill Seymour and his Queen, Shirlee Gardner. The Junior and Senior Reception with the Juniors acting as host to the graduating Seniors was a gala occasion despite the fact that several members of both classes were absent due to their joining the armed forces. This was the finale of the Juniors' eventful school year. CLASS OF '46 First Row: Miss Sullivan, G. Hirn, R. Brown, D. Green, M. Steinbicer, H. Bowyer, Miss Chapin. Second Row: V. Finley, P. Amon, N.

SOPHOMORE CLASS Weathering their first year of High School, the "Sophs" continue to carry on with the same success they had in their Freshmen year. At the beginning of the year, they elected Douglas Dexter, a newcomer to Elkhorn, as their president along with Agnes Leach as vice-president. Vivian Bass was elected Secretary-Treasurer. Frank Eames was chosen to represent them on the Athletic Council and Phyllis Field won out as Cheerleader to help keep up our school spirit. To help them in time of need and strife, Mrs. Van Epps, Miss Karberg, Mr. Hastings and Mr. Paulson are their able class advisors, As is the usual custom, the "Sophs" honored the other classes with an all school party, April seventh. Although they have been with us but a short time, the "Sophs" are well along in gaining honor for their class what with their members taking part in several school activities including Music, Sports, Forensics and Dramatics. Several of their girls were chosen to take part in the all-school play. Many of them have brought home honors in Music, Debate, and Dramatics in competition with other schools. Not to be outdone by any class, these twenty-seven boys and thirty-five girls seem to more than enioy their share of popularity. They have traveled only half the way to their goal, and we know that in their last two years they will continue to show more of their ability and success.

FRESHMAN CLASS On the first day of school Elkhorn High was proud to open its doors to one of the largest classes for many years, the class of "48". lt was composed of 67 "Freshies", 33 boys and 34 girls. Under the able assistance of their "Big Brothers" and "Big Sisters", the upper-classmen, they soon became accustomed to life at Elkhorn High. Mary Piper was the winner of the election for President. Assisting Mary were Carol Tess, vice-president, Betty Erickson, secretary, Bill Dunbar, Athletic Council Representative, and Phyllis McKenzie, Cheerleader. Many of their members soon became active in band, chorus, and many of the other school activities. The Freshman class as a whole seems well interested in sports and many of them show great promise in the field of basketball, baseball, and football. Romance and dates prosper in every class and this class of "48" was no exception as we soon found out at the all-school party given in honor of the Freshman soon .after the opening of school. The "Freshies" now became a part of the social life at Elkhorn High and entertained at an all-school party on May 25 which was well attended and much enioyed by all present. Under the able assistance of Miss Mertens, Miss White, Mr. Steidl, and Mr. Disrud, Freshman class advisors, the Frosh are well along the way to success and we are proud to say to them, "Welcome to Elkhorn High." .swmnw qu.-M.,.,,,W CLASS OF -N. f an First Row: Miss Mertens, M.

The Dramatic Club, under the supervi- sion of Miss Chapin, and the very cooper- ating club members have done a very good iob in organizing and putting on plays during the year. The club has put on "Nine Girls" an all-school play which went over as a success. The girls were in charge of the stage, property committees and all the make up. Money from this play will go in the Dramatic Club treasury. They have also decorated a room in the basement of the hi'gh school as a dramatic room for meetings and for make up. Club members have worked very hard painting it and redecorating it themselves. During the whole year they had nine plays and the pupils acted and put them on themselves, also under student direc- tion. During Christmas the club put on a very interesting play called, "The Per- fect Gift". lt was enioyed by all. First Row D Clauer B Ellsworth M Rathbun R Brown M. Roetter, P. Dasher, Miss M'ertens.

The school spirit is reflected back to the Pep Club and for their achievements we say a very grateful "thanks". The Club composed of twenty- two members, chose Leora Anderson as president, and Miss Lorraine Mertens is their director. Among the many activities of the Pep Club the most important is instilling school spirit into the student body. To maintain this spirit, which is the encouragement to our teams, the members are always composing rousing cheers and are respon- sible for the pep meetings. One of their accomplishments of the year was the annual homecoming program. Starting with a mass pep meeting, snake dance and free movie, it came to a climax with the homecoming dance and coronation of the homecoming king and queen. Homecoming was a great success. X. a X ii?
