Basin Announcing On the pages which follow, the editors and their staff try to present the highlights of the school year of 1949-50, along with the individuals and groups responsible for mak- ing this a fine and pleasant high school to attend. In an effort to avert from the bore- dom which cold facts sometimes carry, we decided to plan our book as if our high school was one massive radio station oper- ating five days a week. The faculty and school board operate from the control room with the student body forming the audience and the special events and highlights taking place on stage. We hope the reader will be pleased with the record of the accomplishments of this year, and that in years to come it will bring back to mind many pleasant recollections of personal experiences. ED.

To those who did not know him he is only the big, tall boy with the coal black hair for whom there will be no graduation-ever. So it is here that we of station E-L-K pause for a moment to pay tribute to our departed class- mate, Iack Rathbun, with the dedication of our nineteen-fifty annual. Board of Supervisors Iohn Voss Dean Enloe Dr. E. D. Sorenson Arthur Iones Rev. C. A. Burmeister The backbone of our radio station is the board of super- visors, composed of five members. They do a great deal of work in order to keep our school system running smoothly. It has occurred to us that most of the time their efforts go un- noticed by the student body, so at this time we would like to thank the school board for everything they have done to aid both the school and the students. DIRECTGRS Chief Engineer To Mr. Helms, as Chief Engineer of E-L-K, belongs the credit for keeping our station on the air. His gui- dance and personal interest in our problems has brought our high school career to a successful conclusion. STANLEY B. HELMS, Superintend t B.E.. MJ-X., Oshk h Teachers Colleg Un ty f Iowa.

She acts as personal secretary to our chief engineer and keeps all the school records. She can always spare a minute to help a stu- dent, and never a day passes that she doesn't have a friendly smile. Assistant Engineer DONALD DISRUD B.Ed., Platteville State Teachers College Principal, Mathematics For the past four years Mr. Disrud, our assistant engineer, has guided us successfully through our hardships and accomplishments. The network of E. H. S., through its students, has cov- ered a Vast area. This of course could not have been done without the aid of our assistant engineer, to whom, at this time, we wish to show our appre- ciation for his guiding hand. 7 In Charge of 0n The Air ORLAN ANDERSON B.M.E.

Under the guidance of Miss Miller and the efforts of our Editor, Bill Getzen, and Co-Editor, Ronnie Borland, our staff has tried to present the high lights of the past school year. Much able assistance came from our business managers, Mary Matheson and Ierry Cervenka, who started out the year with a big campaign to sell our 1950 Elk. Gerry Waltman served Well as our art editor. Phyllis Anderson and Peggy Deacon were our photographers, and two underclassrnen, Murray Wheeler and Eugene Frank, deserve much credit for working with them to turn out the pictures for our 1950 record. 10 Seated: I.

A news flash hot off the wire has just been handed me. It states, "At 8:31 this evening, Iune 2, the Senior Class of Elkhorn High School passed on. Their last will and testament, which was written While they were attending Elkhorn's ivy-covered portals of learning, was published immediately. They chose to present to the Iuniors, their ability to cooperate and their initiative: the Sophomores receive their brains and good looks, and to the Freshmen they leave their brilliant and successful career. To the faculty they return their unusued demerits to be passed around individually. ALDEN WAY leaves his eye lash curler to Le Roy tLaddJ Frietag.

I say there, olde chappie. And with the conclusion of our last will and testament, we of the class of nineteen hundred and fifty regretfully sign off and quietly move from the roof of E.H.S. and prepare to go out into the Great Beyond. Busy Iackson Avenue has become a quiet country lane. The entire town of Elkhorn has settled down to recuperate and return to a peaceful life.

It consists of volunteer members from the regular band. So let's all get together and give them or hand for a job Well done this year. TI-IE SOCIAL HOUR Homecoming Royalty i, ave e0 Huw XN OXH The festivities of Homecoming week were started on October 24 with the building of a huge Homecoming pile of refuse, which was prematurely burned by some arsonists of unidentified origin early on the morning of October 27. Many students were involved in the reconstruction of the new pile, which eventually dwarfed the former pile. After a pep meeting, which was held in the auditor- ium, the bonfire was lit on schedule. Many of the oldsters claimed this to be the largest bonfire in the history of Elkhorn High School. A Homecoming parade was held on the Friday afternoon of the game and displayed the fact that the students put forth a whole- hearted effort toward the construction of their floats. At the game that night the Elks showed their superiority over Harvard by the tune of 20-B. The Homecoming festivities were con- cluded With the annual Homecoming dance, over which Bill Iensen and Ruth Wolff reigned as King and Queen . l l 40 QUEEN'S COURT H. Hurry, M. Ragland, R. Wolff, I.

Winter Formal , lt, W l 1IP-" ,,,....-I 42 N '- On the evening of Ianuary 28, the Seniors put on the annual Winter Formal in the school gym- nasium. The gym was illuminated with reflections from the crystal ball on blue and white streamers and snowflakes, which adorned the walls and ceiling. Everyone was very much pleased with the music, which was furnished by Howard Emerson's orchestra. The dance was well attended by stu- dents as well as alumni. Junior Prom 1 QUEEN EDNA HINTZ It was on the evening of May 20 that the big social event of the year was held, it being the annual Iunior Prom. The Iuniors chose as their king for the big affair, LeRoy Freitag. He, in turn, picked as his queen to reign beside him, Edna Hintz. KING LEROY FREITAG The theme, around which the decorations were built, was "Dutch Dream". The Iuniors monopolized on every opportunity to carry out this theme, which, when coupled with the fine dance rnusic of Bob Stevens and his eight-piece orchestra, led to a very beauti- ful and equally enjoyable evening.

Betty Bowyer "A Date With Iudy" was a modern three act comedy, familiar to everyone since it has been an outstanding radio program for sev- eral years. Iudy Foster, the teen-age daugh- ter, was determined to beat Tootsie White- man by soliciting contributions to the com- munity Relief Fund and, therefore, become Queen of the school dance. Soliciting was too slow, however, so she entered contests involving her parents and friends. The re- sults were disastrous and amusing, espe- cially since Randolph, Iudy's precocious kid brother, was constantly badgering Iudy in the project. The audience was introduced to the Fosters and their friends throughout this play and learned to understand the problems of each of them. It was a heart warming story that appealed to young and old alike. Seated: M. Sperry, I. Dunlap, R. Borland, M. Ragland, D. Wilson, C. Lightfield, B. Bowyer. Standing: B. Clauer P. Deacon, I.

As the story progressed you found you became acquainted with every member of the Hartman household, and their problems and interests became yours. The story seemed so real because the incidents portrayed in this play could happen in any American home.

Monitors The librarians have been doing a wonderful job in keeping the library in order. We especially appreciate their friendly help and co- operation in finding books and locating material on certain topics. A club was organized at the beginning of the year. Thelma Adams was elected president: Ioanne Papenfus, vice-president: and Marlene Klebe, secretary. Their ac- tivities throughout the year included a field trip to Mil- waukee and a Christmas party. The club met once ct month. Studio Maintenance Librarians These people were ap- pointed as monitors at the beginning of the year by the study hall teachers. The monitors work in pairs each hour, it being their duty to collect attendance records from each class room and turn them into the office. These people receive very little credit for their efforts, but wewant them to know that we appre- ciated the time they gave from their study periods to perform these duties.

There was a broad selection of projects to choose from, includ- ing maps of Spain and Latin America, scrap books, and foreign correspondence. In addition to the purchase of a new linguaphone series, the Spanish newspaper, "El Eco", was subscribed for.

During the week of April 17 to 24 a banquet was held in honor of National Latin Week. Bulletin boards in the halls and library were decorated with pic- tures and articles showing vari- ous Roman customs and dress. The officers of the club are: President, Donna Weston: Vice President, Gilbert Church: and Secretary-Treasurer, Carol Thorson. 51 In the llrchestra Pit . . . Stardusters At the beginning of the year, these six. ambitious musicians got together and un- precedentedly started an all-school dance orchestra with the assistance of the school band director, Mr. Steidl. Since that time they have played at school for various dances as well as playing for numerous non-school functions. They had the added distinction of Winning first place on an amateur television show contest in Milwaukee. It should be noted that the only organized practice they had was attained through the relinquishment of two noon hour periods a week. lst Row: R. Barlelson, E. Frank, R. Clauer. 2nd Row: D.
