Under the direction of Mr. Lester Schulz the 1948-
49 A Capella Choir began its season with the Armistice
Day Program on November 11. The following week,
on November 18, they sang tor the County Historical
Society Meeting. On December 8 and 13 the patrons
of the Sprague Theatre were entertained by the music
of the choir.
With the aid of several of the alumni the choir
presented the very difficult Handel's "Messiah" as their
Christmas concert. The gym was beautifully decorated
for the occasion.
On February 3 the Pure Milk Association played
host to the choir and gave them lunch. Several ot the
members were chosen to attend the Massed Choir
which was held at Lake Geneva February 28. Faure's
"Requiem" was presented by the group on April 10,
at the Kinne Gymnasium. On May 3, the A Capella
choir entered the Music Festival at Whitewater.
The choir brought a spectacular close to their
season of activities with their annual "Music Under
The Stars" on Iune 6, at the Band Shell.

This year. new uniforms were a great addition to
the band. They boosted the moral of the members and
added to the appearance of the group.
For the first time the group elected officers for the
purpose of making many of the major decisions for
the band. They were as follows: President-Mary
Ellen Babcock, Vice-President-Charles Coleman, Sec-
retary-Nancy Reid, Treasurer-Mary Matheson.
During the year they gave a dance for the neigh-
boring schools with the hope that the project will be
continued in the future. New music was added through-
out the year to give a wider selection of marches and
overtures as well as popular music. The following are
important dates for the band: December 16-Christmas
Concert, Ianuary 31-Mass Band at Lake Geneva,
April 9-Solo contest at Whitewater, May 7-Band
tournament at Whitewater, March 4-Dance sponsored
by the Elkhorn band.

On the night of Ianuary 15, 1949,
the Senior Class of Elkhorn proudly
presented the winter formal. They
followed the theme of "Winter
Wonderland" by decorating the gym
with sparkling snowflakes. The
snowflakes adorned the ceiling and
added color to every table. Every-
thing was in white, with only blue
lights for radiant rays of winter fun.
We danced to the smooth music of
Lennie Layton and his orchestra.
Everyone went home pleased with
the success of our efforts.

usual summer vacation. Mr. Grayson was
the editor of the town paper, but he had
little control over it because the owner,
Iulia March, was always filling his head
with orders. Iulia had a very spoiled daugh-
ter named Rosemary. At the request oi her
mother she was to stay with the Graysons
for the summer. Glenn Grayson, Ir., was
secretly in love with Rosemary for several
summers. Their neighbor, Mrs. Sparks, be-
ing a typical gossip, informs the Graysons
of a playhouse being built in an old mill.
She lets them know how she feels about
the morals of acting. Surprisingly enough
the director of the play, Dan Lyons, was
hired by none other than Iulia March.
Throughout the play there are several
love afairs between-Iac Grayson, Dan
Lyons, Glenn Grayson, Ir., Agnes Holden
and Rosemary March. Feelings were hurt
when Anne Barry enters and tells of her
secret engagement to Dan Lyons.
But the play ended happily as Iac Gray-
son leaves with Dick Clements and Glenn
Grayson, Ir., with Agnes Holden. Iulia
March gives Mr. Grayson the paper, while
spoiled little Rosemary is left all alone.

The Senior Class Play of 1949 called "Pig-
tails" was the story of a little western girl
who came to stay with some friends in a
large New England city. She gets them
into several major incidents but of course
there is a happy ending.
Under the very capable direction of Miss
Elizabeth Hubbs the play was performed
The ones who really made the play suc-
cessful were all behind stage. This included
Trevor Anderson as stage manager, Bob
Harrington and Darrell Brellenthin as prop-
erty chairmen, Bob Schmidt as publicity
chairman, Dick Waite took care of lighting,
Dale Heisley was the ticket sales chairman,
tickets and programs by Carol Flynn, Marie
Swatek, Nell Ames and Betty Lauderdale.
Prompters were Carol Flynn and Barbara
Peterson. Makeup was skillfully put on by
Maribel Heisley, Barbara Mitchell, Betty
Iutte, and Ioan Wolters. Usherettes included
Nell Ames, Hazel Hull, Betty Lauderdale,
and Arlene York.
The play took place at 8:00 P.M. in the
Municipal Auditorium on April 7.

The debate squad had a very pro-
fitable year of training, under the
direction of Mr. Luther. The squad
was divided into teams. The affirma-
tive was made up of Evelyn Liebnow
and Ted Welch. The negative con-
sisted of Mary Matheson, Carol
Thorson, and Donna Weston. They
arranged practice debates with sev-
eral of the surrounding towns.
First hour each Friday, the Span-
ish Club had its meeting and served
refreshments. All members sub-
scribed to the Spanish newspaper
"El Eco" which they read during
the meetings. The school purchased
a group of records to help the stu-
dents learn to pronounce the lang-
uage better. During the course of
the year, the group saw various
movies on South America. Some had
the narration in Spanish. At the end
of the year the advanced members
of the club had a Spanish banquet.

The "49-ers" began the social activities of
their final year at Elkhorn High by giving
the Homecoming Dance in October. A large
crowd attended to see Betty Iutte and LeRoy
Harry reign as queen and king of home-
coming. In Ianuary the "Winter Wonder-
land" formal was sponsored by the class.
During the year the Seniors sold refresh-
ments at games to raise money for their
class. In the spring the Class Play took the
spotlight. The many dramatic talents of the
seniors were demonstrated on that night.

CLASS -.-Q PROPHECU
On the 20th floor of the New Super Bell
Telephone Company of Elkhorn we find
head operator MISS BEVERLY DUNLAP,
speaking to assistant manager, MISS BEV-
ERLY IBUBBLESJ LAST. As they sit deeply
engrossed in conversation they are interrupt-
ed by the operator's warning bell. "Number
please." "Long Distance, calling 417."
"Here's your party." "Mann Sister's Con-
struction Company, PEGGY MANN, head
grease monkey speaking. What can I do for
you?" "Hello! This is the SCHMIDT G
WAITE Construction Company. Your ma-
chine which we borrowed to build our one
way alley between Elkhorn and Reno,
twhich is not wide enough for trucks and too
rough for carsl has broken down." "Okay,
I'll be right out."
Having overheard this conversation be-
tween several of their old classmates, the
operators begin to think of the changes that
have taken place since graduation. "Did
you ever realize how far our class has gone
in the world?" "You know that HERBERT
PAPENFUS has taken over Power's Models
and has changed it to 'Herbies Models'."
"Yes, and I hear CHUCK WIGHTMAN has
two more discoveries to add to the agency,
CAROL COLLINS and IOAN WOLTERS."
Beverly interrupts, "Have you seen BETTY
IUTTE and MARVIN WALBRANDT in 'Ro-
meo and Iutte'?" "Yes, I read about that in
the New York Times. And just think, SALLY
GREGERSON is now the editor of the Times
and famous for her 'blue sheet' comic strip."
"Speaking of newspapers, ROGER HOLLI-
DAY is the new crime photographer for a
small newspaper in Gu1liver's Gulch. Yes,
our class has done pretty well in the news-
paper business. I hear DON MATHESON
has made a large fortune on his comic strip
'Lill' Andy 6: Big Sam', and also has done
well with his book 'How to Mix Drinks With
Scotch.' They say he has acquired the pen
name, Lavish McTavish."
The operator's warning bell rings and
again it is another '49 graduate CAROL
BRELLENTHIN. "Would you connect me with
VOGT df ROBSON interior decorators".
"Hello, Vogt 6' Robson, interior decorators.
CAROL FLYNN, secretary speaking." "Hello,
you recently papered my living room pea-
green with orange stripes. The stripes were
supposed to go up and down, but instead
they go around. This must be taken care of
immediately!" "I'll speak to DALE HEIS-
LEY who is in charge of paper hanging."
A deep lull comes over the telephone of-
fice until Bev says "Speaking of our former
classmates, some of them really have gone
places. Take those fellows that now own the
Spanish Cocktail Lounge-LARRY BURNS.
IIM COLLINS, and DON KEHL. They have
MIKE QGRAYJ and his Merry Musicians play-
ing there nightly. DON BRELLENTHIN is
vocalist with the band, and BARBARA BAR-
TEI.-SON is featured on the french horn."
Bubbles continues "Someone else who has
nrogressed is ROY BLACKWOOD. I hear he
is managing the LAUTA and LIEBNOW
Trucking and Engineering Company. Thev
have just begun to sponsor the "Ma Perkins"
radio serial program. KATIE KNAPP is still
playing the part of "Ma". "Katie always did
have a knack for dramatics, didn't she, Bub-
bles? "Say," Beverly continued, "l ran into
CHARLES GRANT last week, and he is an
engineer over at the new radio station. He
said Bill Wuttke is an announcer now. He
has been broadcasting the races from Arl-
ington Park". Bubbles interrupts, "And I
heard that MARIBEL HEISLEY is a veteri-
narian down there at Arlington. I wonder
if she makes money on her long-shots? And
Beverly, guess what I heard on the radio the
other day? You remember LEROY HARRY
and BOB HARRINGTON, don't you? Well, I
heard them broadcasting. "Yes," answered
Beverly, "I heard them once, too. Their spon-
sor is the lake-kist tsilent crunch! celery farm
owned by BETTY IACOBSEN. Her farm is
near the headquarters for the famous Drum
and Bugle Corps that "Dinky" DARRELL
BRELLENTHIN has charge of now. They all
broadcast over station Q.U.E.E.R., you know.
"Yes, I heard the 'Thespian Hour' after work
the other night. I didn't know PAM BAKER
was president of the National Thespians,
did you? The Thespian hour is sponsored
by BILL DORAN'S Gambel Store. "I did
know, though, that MARY ELLEN BABCOCK
composed their theme song "Waite Till the
Sun Shines Me-Me". RAY PADDOCK is chief
engineer for all the programs on Q.U.E.E.R..
and NELL AMES is his assistant.
"Do you remember the day we went to
Janesville and saw MARION DORN'S school
on the way? She was out there teaching all
the little ones to drop their hankies and run
for their lives! We noticed DON OLSEN'S
convertible parked out in back of Haybecks.
that day and wondered why it was there.
Now I know! He polishes spitoons and does
all the janitor work up there.
"Oh, did you know-lust a minute", inter-
rupted Bev, "I'd better answer this light
on my board. Number Please." "Would you
give me the Railroad Depot please?" "Here
you are ma'am." "Who was it Bev?" "MAR-
ION GENENS. I think I'll listen, she's pro-
bably going on another moose hunting trip
to Canada. I wonder who she will leave to
manage the watermelon farm. ALICE LAR-
SON and RUTH HAMMEL are in charge of
the people who pick the seeds out of the
watermelons, so I suppose they will take
over don't you?" "Yes, I suppose they will.
They always are quite capable, you know.
until they start laughing and can't stop.
"I remember when BETTY LAUDERDALE
and I were in Home Ec. together," remarked
Bubbles. "She cooks out at Nutty Knoll now
you know." "That's the new asylum for mad
people isn't ,it?" "Yes, you know IRIS
GROVE is the proprietor and her friend
STEVE SCHRANZ is head baker there. IDA
BULOW is the Doctor for those mentally
mad ones. I hope the atmosphere out there
doesn't affect Betty. I think she should take
that job MARY LOU SHEPARD offered her
as chief cook at one of her eat shops. She
bought a whole chain of restaurants and
named them Mary Lou's Eat Shops. I talk-
ed to ART LUEBKE, the famous wrestler, he
says he gets all his vitamins from Mary
Lou's vitaminized food. He's still a bachelor,
"Last week on my day off we went to Mil-
waukee," remarked Bubbles. "My girl friend
and I went down to Third and Wells and
saw BARBARA PETERSON and ROSALIE
MISHIER selling school sweaters at Johnnie
Walkers. That was the day we took in
MARY FOSTER'S one ringed circus, featur-
ing 'Bo-Bo' CIANE GRUNEWALDJ with her
mystic powers from the north end. MARTIN
DOEBERT is chief bouncer at the elephant
circus. Mary told me she was thinking of
auitting the circus business and accepting
the position offered her by Walt Disney.
MARIE SWATEK is already in Hollywood
writing for the Disney Studios. I suppose she
writes only about 'Woodchucks'."
"Do you remember last week's paper? I
think it was Sunday when we read about
the Stork Club being robbed? Well I just
heard today that BETTY HULL was involved
in it! I knew that she was in New York but
I didn't think she worked at the Stork Club."
"Why, of course, Betty is hat check girl. I
heard that she got the most money from
IOHN MEYER. Evidently his new invention
'The Meyer Mobile' has been a huge suc-
cess. But what is he doing so far from Flint,
"Oh, did you know that ARLENE YORK
and MARILYN BABCOCK tGabbyl were go-
ing to buy out the White Cab Company. Of
course, they're still hoping for the same pas-
"lust a minute," remarked BEV, "here's a
call from the IONES G IONES Pallbearers,
Funeral Directors, grave-diggers and expert
monument makers, office on the east side.
Their motto is 'just drop dead and we will
do the rest'. I think I'd better listen in on
this one. Oh, it's Phil's secretary MILDRED

staff. With the receiving of their special assignments
they commenced work filling these pages with in-
teresting memos of the school year "48" and "49".
It was because of the efforts of these people, led by
our editors Sally Gregerson and Don Matheson, that
the preceding pages were completed and presented
to you. The staffs' special thanks go to Miss Miller
who has guided us all the way to the presses.
