sense. lust as all people of the twentieth century are living in an
international world, so too we the members of the Fond du Lac Senior
High School are experiencing here within the confines of our building

BOARD OF EDUCATIO
Standing: Mr. R. E, Miller, Superintendent H. C. Bauer, Mr. W. M. Meyst, Mr. N. Peters.
Seated: Mr. N. F. Kelley, Mayor Edwin Weis, President Roy W. Thiel, Mrs. I. A. Nemick,
Mr. Odin Olson.
The moral power of a community or of a nation is measured
by the ideals, thoughts, and deeds of the individual citizen com-
posing the group. As each of us recognizes high spiritual values.
and as each of us practices the homely virtues of honesty, integ-
rity, and basic intelligence, so do we determine the level of pub-
lic morality in government, in business, and in society. The influ-
ences oi Fond du Lac students will be felt in far places, and others
will also make their contribution here.
BCY W. THIEL, President
Fond du Lac Board of Education
Vividly and convincingly does the faculty exemplify the theme of the 1952
Chatterbox for its members daily present in classroom, in laboratory, and in
shops the Here . . . the There . . . and the Everywhere.
Here . . . in the classrooms. Chemistry teaches us the power of com-
pressed gases: corks are shot at unsuspecting students by the use of dry ice
gas. In English, we are taught the truth of Shakespeare's immortal words:
"brevity is the soul of wit." How to measure buildings and towers is taught
to us in trigonometry when we learn the use of a transit. Quiet finally comes
to a Latin party when a rule is enforced that limits all speaking to the Latin
language. History makes us realize that today's events, since they are merely
outgrowths of the past, can be judged by past events.
Th87'e . . , from the alma mater of our teachers. Westminster College
methods are imbibed by our Triple Trio in choir. Anecdotes from Bread Loaf
School of English keep us smiling in English. Plaudits go to Colorado College
of Education which provides our boys with a guiding hand while Ripon College
is responsible for another of our administrators. St. Olaf College, San lose
State College, Stout Institute, University of California . . . all represented by
our home economics department. Our dramatic talent in the Silver Masque
is finely polished thru the teachings presented by the Pasadena Playhouse.
E7Je1'ytwhe1'6 . . .thru the world travels of our teachers we too visit old
coffee houses of England and see Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-on-Avon.
By the borders of Belgium during the First World War and in search of chem-
icals and minerals thru Canada we travel vicariously with our science teach-
ers. Tales of geographical sights from never-forgotten memories of the British
Isles are made vivid for us. Mexico and Cuba bring us tales of Latin America
color and dash. Memories of our nation's capital linger . . . memories that
never will be forgotten. Off to Europe, 'round the world . . . a survey is made
for us thru the eyes of our instructors.

PRINCIPAL H. H. THEISEN.
Chatterbox Editor Iudy Kaluzny explains to Mr. Theisen plans for 1952 year book.
Since the beginning ot your school days, the destiny of
your future has changed many times because of World
affairs. The Korean conflict, commercial aviation, televi-
sion, medical research and the United Nations are but a
few developments that effect all of you. Soon you will
share in the responsibility for helping solve these World
problems. Are you prepared and willing to assume such
obligation? Leaders are needed in business, government,
religion, education, medicine and in many allied fields.
Will the graduating class of 1952 furnish its share of lead-
ership? The answer depends on you.

Darryl Goldberg: Good evening, people. This

bringing you the game between Bill Brunet's
Maulers and Dirk Van Pelt's White Faces.
We'll be right back to bring you this game after
a word from our sponsors, Bill and Margaret
Hoffman's Cold Cream.
Iohn Shennan: Ladies, is your face full of wrin-
kles, crevices, Holland tunnels? Then use Hoff-
man's Cold Cream. This cold cream is so cold
that it freezes to your face. Put it on at night
and in the morning just peel it off. If it doesn't
peel off, just put your head in a blast furnace
to melt it. If that fails, try a sledge hammer.
. . . If your face is not completely changed after
Iohn Sherman Delores Axotis Daryl Goldberg one treatment. we offer YOU Y0l-11' IIIOIIGY lDC1Ck.
Now back to Darryl.
Darryl Goldberg: The teams are in their respective dressing rooms getting last minute instruc-
tions from their respective coaches. We give you Iohn Sherman to give you the pre-game dope.
Iohn Sherman: Leading the Maulers into this game will be Richard Nehls, son of Donald Nehls
and the former Iune Harmer. Their star passer, lack Kennedy Ir., is the son of lack Sr. and
Darlene Fritz. Guarding the water bucket for the Maulers is their great trainer, Leigh Taylor.
Leading the White Faces is Ioseph Safford, son of Emory Safford and Mary Hitzler. The White
Faces' aches and pains are being taken care of by David Blanke, ace masseur. Important
celebrities here today are Leslie Robert Maze, scout for Iohn Zahn's Distillers and Wayne Par-
man, Secretary of the Treasury. Now we switch to a unique portion of our broadcast. Delores
Axotis, our gossip expert, will now spread it.
Delores Axotis: Thank you. I hear tell that Margaret Schultz has finally hooked a man for
keeps. The marriage depends upon the day he graduates from high school. He is only a
sophomore. The Huberty trio has taken over for the Andrew sisters. They are Ianey, bass,
Ieanne, alto, Mary, baritone, and Dick Neumann, messo soprano. Carolyn Cohen, who planned
to take up child welfare work, is planning a big party for her next child. It will be her twenty-
first child. Baby expert, Conrad Fritz, is filing through the record books to see if this sets some
sort of a record. Now a comment from the father, Howard Hobbs.
"Well, I ........
"Thank you, Mr. Hobbs."
Margie Libke has just arrived in town fresh from her big picture, Frcm.kenstei.n's Mother
or ...... ...... ...... - ..... , w hich co-starred Arlene Nichol as Grendel's mother. Teach-
ers, Ioan Bartell and Lois Ianke. took their students to the city where the students spotted a
slot machine. Ioan, in trying to show the youngsters what an evil that type of entertainment
was, put in cr silver dollar. She hit the jackpot and class was dismissed. Iohn Covill's program
of sarcastic remarks will follow the game. Now back to the game.
Iohn Sherman: Thank you Delores. Now I wish to thank the following firms that relinquished
their time that we might bring you the game: Mary Deitz' Popcorn Factory: the Iaber, Beyer,
and Rady Corset Sales: Buch, DeLorme, and Venne Reducing School, where you reduce while
you eat: "Honest" Alex Barthuly's Auto Shop for used Black "37" Plymouths: The Women's
Christian Temperance Union, headed by Fay Deuster and Nick Kalabolasg and the Kiltz, De-
moski, and Hanisch Athletic Club. Now back to your friend and mine, Darryl tPlay by playl
Darryl Goldberg: Other celebrities that I see are Senators Ierry Miller, Ioyce Miller, lake Mack-
lem, and Ierry Kreuger. We will have a few words from the two opposing coaches for today's

Dirk Van Pelt fLow voicel: We'll smear them all over the field.
Darryl Goldberg: Thank you for your unintelligent remarks. The teams have not come on
the field yet so we take time out for station identification.
Iohn Sherman: This is station R. O. S. E., owned and operated by Wayne Rose incorporated.
Excuse me folks. Mr. Rose just dropped his 1000 pound bar bell on his foot.
Advertisements: Send your clothes to Gahnz, Scott, and Breitung Laundry. If we fade any of
your clothes, we personally guarantee to fade the rest of your clothes to match the first
batch. Single men, are you looking for more telephone numbers? If so, send your suits to us,
leaving your address book in your pocket. We promise you we will add to that list twelve
names. Thank you. Now back to the game and Darryl.
Darryl Goldberg: The teams are all lined up for the kick-off, and the game is on I l ! ! ? ? ?
KOne hour later!
Here is the picture, folks. The score is 676W to 676 in favor of the Maulers with thirty
seconds remaining to play in the game. The White Faces have the ball on the one yard line,
fourth down, goal to go. Hold it, folks. Here comes a substitution for the Maulers. Ohh!! he's
a big fellow. What's his number? I can't see it!! It looks like 63715. "Sherm," who is that?
Iohn Sherman: Iohn Buch Ir., son of Iohn Sr. and Shirley Ledbetter. He is wearing his dad's
old uniform but it's too small around the waist. The Van Pelts will never make it. They cannot
go around him nor through him.
Darryl Goldberg: Hold it "Sherm": who is this coming in for the White Faces? It looks like
number IA.. Yes, it is!!! Little Richard Brams Ir., son of Richard Sr. and Ioan Hiester. Brams
has the ball. He goes between Buch's legs. Buch can't reach him: so he falls on him. Did he
score??? The officials, Robert Michler, Iohn Smith, Duane Stoegbauer, and Ralph Spoerke, are
unpiling all of Buch now. Ianet Gilbertson and Ieanie Fisher, two secretaries for Iurgensmeier
Bottling Works, are here today and cheering for the Maulers. They were voted by office man-
agers the G. I. W. M. L. T. B. O. M. K. D. D. C., The Girl I Would Most Like to Bounce on My
Knee During Dictation Club. President of the club is LeRoy Halle.
They have called two ditch diggers onto the field to excavate Buch. They are Iohn Straub
and Dick Weisbach. They have Buch off now and are now looking for Brams. Two archae-
ologists, Mark Whelan and Elton Wegener, are exploring for Brams . . . they have found
him, I think. Is he over? Gordon Hammes has his slide rule with him and is calculating Whether
Brams is over or not. Hammes rules he is . . , over!!!! Brunet's Maulers protest, but to no avail.
Hammes just beats them off with a used piano. Besides, Gordon has replaced Einstein's
Theory of Relativity with his own theory. The final score was 683 to 676Vz in favor of Dirk Van
Pe1t's White Faces over Bill Brunet's Maulers. I will now turn you back to lohn Sherman
for a few words.
Iohn Sherman: They are tearing down the goal posts, but promoters, Gary Penn and Rodney
Swalby, don't care because they got the posts at Smither's Secondhand Shop. The band.
under the able direction of Bob U-lrturo Tuscaninil King, is now leaving the field. George Greg-
ory, "Bugs" Mitchell, Wayne Hoffman, and Kirk Rodman are the policemen who are circling
The final score today, once again, was the White Faces 683, and the Maulers 676Vz.
We now turn you back to the studio. Stay tuned to this station for the important campaign
speech to be delivered by Les Wilhelms for presidential nominee, Carol Lampl. Thank you.

"Between the innocence of sophomores and the dignity of seniors, we find a delightful
creature called a junior." '-
To be exact, there are 358 of these delightful creatures absorbing knowledge at Fondy High
this year. And very important they are, too, for among them are found possessors of some of
the outstanding talents of the school.
They certainly were pleased at those basketball games when they saw Glen Snyder at
guard winning everyone's admiration.
The entire school just couldn't get enough of lunior Ruth Hunke's singing. Not only did the
juniors realize that we have a budding opera star in our midst, but so did all of Fondy High.
Although the seniors think they have all the dignity in their class, the juniors will "pit"
Paul Schultz against them any time. Paul was lucky in having an opportunity to attend a
Boy Scout Iamboree in Europe last summer. Since his return, he has given many speeches
before city organizations. That's our Schultzie!
Our boy Bestor tGlen, that isl made quite a name for himself in football this year. A few
more like Glen and we'll really play football next year.
We wonder at the speed and exactness with which our welcome additions to the junior class
have learned English. Of course we mean Adriana Torre, Nina Skeliarsky, and Irene and
Elfrida Zallevits. You "native" Americans, is it really true that they get better grades in Eng-
lish 5 than you do?
The junior girls had a problem last fall. What was it? . . . Only 168 boys to 190 girls. That
situation was soon remedied. fAfter all, the New Year brought Leap Year, and just look at
all the nice senior and sophomore boysll
And now. it is the time of year when the juniors walk on little pink clouds. Spring? Yes,
that is the reason partly, but mostly because of that brand new class ring which shows they
have acquired the dignity of full fledged seniors-well, almost.
Here's hoping the new junior class will be bigger and better, and will enjoy their junior year
even more than we did-but, after all, is such possible???
DO YOU LIKE THE lUNlOR CLASS RINGS. GLEN?

The sophomores are an up and coming group. Rightfully they may boast
of great accomplishments. Football, basketball, track, tennis, and golf have
had the active support of the sophs both in actual play and in the cheering
crowds. As one casts his eyes over the participants of Fondy I-li's music activi-
ties, he will find many sophs in the choir, band, orchestra, and chorus, and
in other musical organizations. The sophs are members of the fine Boy's
Quartet. The sophomores make up a large percentage of the membership in
German club, Spanish club, and Silver Masque. The sophomore girls are busy
with parties and picnics. Many members of this class are planning on going
into interesting vocations: such as, the Armed Forces for both men and
women, journalism, construction work and engineering. Home economics and
social service are favorites of many girls. Certainly any one of these fields
could take the sophomores everywhere to the four corners of the earth. Scho-
lastically, the sophs have had an average of fifty members on the honor roll.
Altogether with their fine record, the class of "54" seems to give great promise
of good times for Fondy High in the next two years.

The future will find us scattered over the globe, but no mat-
ter where we may be found the senior girls will always remem-
ber the wonderful Mortar Board parties they had at Senior
The year began with the Ha1lowe'en costume party. The
members, dressed in costumes ranging from a "drip" portray-
ed by Helen Degner, to an old lady, depicted by Ianice Fried-
rich together with the appropriate autumnal decorations gave
the cafeteria a festive air. A peanut hunt which sent these
strange creatures scurrying about the cafeteria like squirrels.
and a horror room which held the remains of an "old friend"
caused shrieks of laughter and blood-curdling screams to echo
through the empty halls of the school. To complete a most
lively evening, well deserved and well received refreshments
were served by Ianet Gilbertson, Ioan Bartell, and Diane Peters.
Cold December came and brought with it the annual Christ-
mas dinner at the E1k's Club. Although the setting had been
changed, the air of gaiety was still present, as the happy laugh-
ter and ceaseless chatter of the girls plainly demonstrated.
Dressed in their holiday best to grace the occasion they looked
as if they had just stepped from the pages of a fashion maga-
zine. The tables were decorated in snow scenes. Each guest's
place was marked by an unusual and very attractive marsh-
mallow skier. The decorations were made by a committee of

ity singing, a reading by Iudy Kaluzny, the exchange of gifts,
and the reading of the comic verses which had accompanied
the gifts. Prizes were awarded to Nancy Hall, Donna Hennert,
and Kathleen Herr for having the cleverest verses.
March winds blew in the initiation of future members. For
two days the junior girls came to school with their clothes on
inside out and with their hair done up in pigtails. tThat is, one-
half of their hair was in pigtails.l They were forced to carry the
senior members' books and were obliged to bow upon meeting
them any place in school. The initiation was concluded on the
evening of the second day by parading these "beauties" up
and down Main Street. "Nose bag lunches" fumished by the
new members were then eaten in the school cafeteria. Punish-
ments were given to those girls who had not conformed to all
April arrived with flowers and the spring formal. In the
beautifully decorated gym the starry-eyed girls danced with
their escorts to soft music, and sighed happily as a most com-
plete year drew to a close.
Wherever these girls may be in the future--New York, Lon-
don, Rome, Paris, or Fond du Lac-the Mortar Board parties
always will be a cherished memory.

Probably every woman of note who once attended Fond du Lac
Senior High School had her start in the Sophomore Girls' Club.
Former members have gone into many fields. Some have become
nurses, office workers, and homemakers. Some traveling farther
afield are now in Europe with their husbands who are in service.
The Sophomore Girls' Club has made its presence felt in the
world by assisting in packing boxes for the Iunior Bed Cross.
These boxes have helped to develop favorable relationships be-
tween our people and the people of other countries. The sopho-
more girls have gained many friends through writing letters to
people of other countries. These friendships aid in finding out the
characteristics of people of other countries and in comparing other
countries with our country. We hope this better understanding of
other people will play some part in promoting world peace. To
help the people right here in the United States, the Sophomore
Girls' Club has made tray covers for the Veteran's Hospital at
Wood. Last year the girls sold tags for the heart campaign. The
campaign was sponsored by the Wisconsin Heart Association
which is affiliated with the American Heart Association.
The club is very fortunate in having as one of its members Rene
Torre. Rene came to the United States from Milan, Italy in Ianu-
ary of last year. Rene says that there were no organizations such
as the Sophomore Girls' Club in the schools of Italy. The schools

the many interesting stories which Rene has to tell.
This year the club had a program committee which has been
in charge of arranging the meetings and parties for the entire
year. The girls who were on this committee are Darlene Stein-
barth, Kay Pfeil, Lois Gainacopulos, Mary Ann Kohlman, Barbara
Pike, Donna Conway, and Louise Buch.
One of the most successful meetings of the year was the lovely
Christmas party, where the girls played games, danced, and had
a wonderful time. Betty Pemberton took charge of making the
cafeteria look very festive. Marilyn Bradley, Mary Bock, Sonya
Nelson, Mary Woodbury, Mary Coulahan, and Shirley Hicken
took part 'in providing the entertainment for the evening. The
group concluded their party by going to Mi1t's where they had re-

One of the most valuable cmd interesting of our school activ-
ities is our school paper, published eight times this year. Many
of the students may think that the I-Ii-Eye is just our school
paper and that is as far as its influence extends. But, in
this, they are mistaken. The Hi-Eye not only goes to such state
high schools as Sheboygan Central, Sheboygan North, Ripon.
Two Rivers, Merrill, Platteville, Wausau, Green Bay East, and
Green Bay West, but even to out-of-state high schools in Benton
Harbor, Michigan, Menominee, Michigan, and Scotts Bluff, Neb-
raska. The Hi-Eye in turn receives papers from all these schools
and in addition receives the publications of Oshkosh State
Teachers' College and Colorado Women's College. Numerous
students in our schools who subscribe to the paper carry out the
international idea of doing things these days by sending their
own copies to friends in foreign countries. Among the countries
on the list We find Iapan, Sweden, Norway, Germany, and Eng-
land. This gives the teen-agers of other lands some idea of
what we do in our school.
The Hi-Eye staff was very proud of the special six-page edi-
tion they were able to give the students at Christmas. Lack of
funds prevented this from becoming the regular policy of the
paper. The front page of each issue was set up differently

each time to give it variety and add interest to the paper. One
of the most popular features of the paper because of its great
general interest to all readers was "Snooper's Scoop". A new
column called "Girl Talk" soon became a great favorite with
the girls because it was concerned with girls' athletics. The job
of getting it together was in the capable hands of Iudy Kaluzny
and Marilyn Cotter, who alternated in writing up the column.

"Here, there, and everywhere" indicates the whereabouts of pres-
ent cmd former Chatterbox staff members. This edition of the Chatter-
box concludes a busy year for the students and faculty advisors
"here". We, of the present staff, have gained a great satisfaction by
successfully concluding in Iune, a project begun last September. But
this reward for us doesn't end "here" in Fond du Lacy it goes on "to
there and to everywhere". Many former students who received their
first practical experience on the Chatterbox staff have gone on to re-
ceive positions on college yearbooks and newspapers. Some former
staff members have utilized the experience gained "here" by receiv-
ing positions on city newspapers and on university faculties.
The production of this yearbook is a long, tedious task occupying
much time for various faculty advisors and the editorial staff. Since
September, the editorial staff under the supervision of Miss Teresa
O'Brien, faculty editor, has been at work on the Chatterbox. Outside
photographers and our art teacher, Mr. Wegener, have been present
at all the school functions taking pictures. With the beginning of the
second semester Miss Katharine O'Brien and her staff began work
on the literary phase of the Chatterbox.
May you enjoy looking thru it as much as we, of the staff, enjoyed
having the experience of helping to make this Chatterbox possible.

MR. WALLACE EKVALL
The F. F. A. is an intra-curricular activity having its origin in a def-
inite part of the school curriculum, vocational agriculture. Members
learn through active participation how to conduct and take part in a
public meeting: to speak in public: to buy and sell cooperatively: to
solve their own problems: to finance themselves and to assume civic
responsibility. The foundation upon which the F. F. A. is built includes
leadership and character development, sportsmanship, improved agri-
culture, organized recreation, citizenship, and patriotism.
Field trips are taken to members' farms where new or improved farm-
ing methods are being used. The boys go on practice judging trips
each fall and spring where they judge livestock and cattle. The state
judging contests held at Madison each spring, and the Iunior Livestock
Show at Green Bay, are attended by representatives of the F. F. A.
Two delegates are also sent to the state F. F. A. convention, a three day
meeting held at Lawsonia, Green Lake, Wisconsin each spring.
The boys are active in the sports field too. They have a basketball
team with A and B squads and compete in intra-school F. F. A. basket-
ball. The teams in this F. F. A. League are: Brandon, Rosendale, Ripon,
Chilton, and Oshkosh. This season the A squad lost only one game
and the B squad won every game.
This year the F. F. A. and the fifth hour agriculture class are particu-
larly lucky. They have studying with them Herbert Guethlein from
Germany. He was sent here through the National Grange, an agricul-
tural organization, to study agriculture in the mid-west. The boys are
doing all they can to give him an accurate and overall view of Wiscon-
sin agriculture. The boys of this national organization feel that the
club's activities really fulfilled its purpose as expressed in its motto,
"Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, and Living to Serve."

"Here, there, and everywhere" very fittingly describes the activities
of our dramatic club, Silver Masque, this past year. The members
didn't actually travel "there and everywhere", of course. But rather
they let their imaginations travel by listening to the readings of drama-
tic works of noted playwrights.
"Here", the club activities commenced with an initiation party in Sep-
tember. Last year's president, Ray Papenfuss, officiated by pinning the
Silver Masque pins on each of the new club members. The officers
elected for this year were Eugene Scholler as president, and Iudy
Kaluzny as secretary.
During the spring season, the club members were buzzing with activ-
ity. The group listened to the reading of Death of cr Salesman at a
meeting held at the public library. They also enjoyed a meeting and
game night at Luella Skillbred's home, a theatre party, and a club sup-
per at Schreiner's restaurant. This latter event was followed by after
dinner speeches by several members.
Because of conflicting meeting dates, the club wasn't able to put on
any plays for the student body and faculty. The members, under the
supervision of Mrs. Phyllis Lahti, faculty advisor, gained much knowl-
edge in dramatics through the course of the year, and shall continue
to go "there and everywhere" with the knowledge which they received

The German Club whose membership is open to all students study-
ing German, began its activities in October at the Willkomen lwelcom-
ingl party. An election was held and seniors won the offices of presi-
dent and vice-president. The office of the secretary-treasurer went to a
sophomore. The club was fortunate in having two foreign students as
guests, at this meeting. They were Nina Skliarevsky who came from
Czechoslovakia, to make her home in Fond du Lac, and Herbert Gueth-
lein who came from Germany. Herbert is in the United States as an
exchange student sponsored by the National Grange. Both of them, as
well as Paul Schultz Ir., who traveled to Europe last summer as a Boy
Scout representative at the International Scout Iamboree, gave mem-
bers interesting information about Germany.
At the Christmas party a German skit was presented, Stille Nacht
tSilent Nightl was sung of course, and German cookies . . . Pfeffernusse
. . . were on the menu. Three members of the club, Ioyce Freiberg, Car-
ol Brown, and Amber Rosenthal enlivened the meetings with piano
selections. Cupid was a guest at the Valentine party which the group
sponsored. Homemade valentines, on which verses were written in
German, were exchanged. Eileen Laird gave a German reading, Ger-
man songs were sung, and refreshments were served. The lebe wohl
tfarewelll party for seniors brought the year to a close. A skit showing
the seniors ten years from now was most entertaining.
On the more serious side the club members donated enough money
so three Iunior Red Cross boxes could be sent overseas.
The German club gave members an opportunity to make new friends,
to increase their German vocabulary through games and other activi-
ties, and to become pen pals of students in Germany.

The culture of Spain and the other Spanish-speaking countries is
stressed in this club. The club members learn not only the Spanish
language, but also the customs, traditions, and history of these coun-
tries. The club members gave proof that they had learned something
of life in these countries by the program planned for their annual
Christmas party. The party concerned itself with the singing of carols
in Spanish and playing games that dealt with the usage of Spanish
words. The pinata which Anne Shafer designed and made into the
form of "El Toro", The Bull, was the center of interest. Anne was assist-
ed in filling it with "goodies" by Betty Baier, Mary Hitzler, and Iohn
Harlow. Others who contributed to the success of the party were Robert
Eder, Fred Hanson, Nancy McGown, Margie Libke, Carolyn Cohen,
Mary Carol Opgenorth, lean Abraham, Arlene Nichol, Donna Magin,
Amber Rosenthal, Sharon Nussbaum, and Elizabeth Ridgway. tFor a
little American flavor, they had quite a time passing life-savers from
person-to-person with the aid of toothpicksl. Inexpensive gifts were ex-
changed and everyone had fun.
Miss Vivian invited the club to hold one of its meetings in her home
to listen to Spanish records. On another occasion, Miss Christopherson
showed her interesting moving pictures which she made on the trip she
took to Mexico recently. Some of the former members, because of the
interests they developed in Spanish class and club have gone on to
learn even more about the Spanish-speaking countries. In this age of
easy and speedy travel by air many oi us may have an opportunity to
visit our Spanish-speaking neighbors to the south. Then while we are
learning more about them, we will perhaps appreciate more fully how
valuable and practical our membership in this fine club really was.

This year the fifty girls in the Iunior Girls' Club were directed by a
council of eight girls: Gail Podeweltz, Carol Keys, Sally Radtke, Sharon
Schultz, Marsha Lankau, Sally Caird, Kathy Barnes, and Carol Har-
bridge, with Miss Louise Haack as their faculty advisor. These girls
had the responsibility of planning the meetings of the club held during
the noon hour on the first Wednesday of each month.
One of the nicest events of the year was the Christmas party held
in the cafeteria where the girls danced, played games, and of course,
Most of the members are active in other clubs also. Some of the
girls belong to German Club, Spanish Club, and Silver Masque.
Several of them are valuable members of the Hi-Eye and Chatterbox
staffs, and have contributed much to the success of these publications.
There is much musical talent represented too, for many belong to either
the Band, Orchestra, or Choir. The Club also has its "songbirds":
sopranos, altos, and even a few tenors.
The girls are lucky to have as one of their members Adriana Torre,
who came to live in this country from Italy. They have learned many
interesting things about her country and now she is even teaching
some of the girls how they dance in Italy. Another way some of the
members are helping to promote international understanding is by
having pen pals in other countries. They have joined such clubs as the
Iapan L.P.F. Club and may have as many as three or four pen pals
in that country.
The season's activities closed with a wonderful picnic in May.
l'm sure the girls feel that they will be better senior citizens of Fond
du Lac Senior High School because of their membership in this group.

The 1952 Senior High School orchestra, under the direction of
Mr. Lawrence Skilbred, is one of the best that senior high has ever
had. There are many countries represented in the music which is
played by the orchestra. The group plays selections by composers
from Germany, Belgium, Austria and England. All sections of Amer-
ica also have representative music in the orchestra's repertoire.
Early California. the number which was presented at the festival in
Berlin on May 3, gives a colorful picture of the period of the early
settlement of California. The music of the southern Negroes was
also featured in the colorful harmony of Song of Bayon which con-
tains haunting negro spirituals. Music from Broadway and Holly-
wood was represented by Over the Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz.
and Look for the Silver Lining by Ierome Kern.
The orchestra has as one of its members, Ligita Birzgalis who is
from Latvia. Ligita is the orchestra's cellist. She also plays the piano.
All the members have enjoyed hearing stories which Ligita has told
about Latvia and Latvian music.
The senior high orchestra has had many members who have gone
on in music after leaving school. Some have become music teachers
while others have played in bands and orchestras.
This year on April 3 the orchestra, choir, and band gave their
annual joint concert. The orchestra program consisted of Early Cali-
fornia Overture, Song of the Bayon, Deep Purple and The Waltz-

MR. IAMES NELSON
Since democratic principles are applied in our high school, one
naturally would expect to find a form of student government func-
tioning here. This organization directed by Mr. Nelson is the student
council. The council, consisting of a representative from each roll
room, provides a means through which every member of the student
body is able to voice opinions. The council also attempts to estab-
lish better relations between the students and the teachers.
Although the student council has been in existence for the last
few years only, it has become quite active in school affairs by
accepting many responsibilities. Taking tickets and organizing
school dances, planning and decorating for homecoming, ushering
for the open house, assisting on Career Days, and selling football
and basketball pencils were all duties which the council members
assumed this past year. None of these activities were ever regarded
as burdens, for council members realized these were opportunities
to be of real service to their school. With the money raised from the
sale of the football and basketball pencils, two valuable and useful
articles, a camera and a school flag, were purchased and donated
to the school. This flag which has a red cardinal on a white field is
the first of its kind at Senior High. The members know that all these
experiences are valuable as a preparation for future responsibilities.
The ability to assume responsibility is a great asset, and if properly
developed in high school, will help one to pave the way to success.
This the council has tried to do.

For the common things of everyday
God gave men speech in the common way OFFICERS:
For the deeper things men think and feel
God gave the poets words to reveal
For the heights and depths no word can reach
God gave men music, the soul's own speech.
The 1952 A Cappella Choir retained its reputation established
during the past five seasons, as one of the finest choral groups in
the State of Wisconsin. Personnel again this year consisted of ap-
proximately eighty members, a majority of which ranked high in
scholastic ability. Membership, first of all revolves around a natural
interest in vocal music. With this interest and necessary cooperation,
the choir members tound they were not only enjoying themselves,
but creating beautiful music for others to enjoy as well. Some of us
know we have acquired more poise, self assurance, dependability,
and appreciation for the finer things of life due to the activities of
the Choir. '
Highlights of this year's work included a Christmas Concert, a
radio broadcast, and the fifth annual production of the "Minstrel
Revue." The Revue was presented to packed houses two nights.
The cast for this celebrated show was made up of Choir and Glee
Club students, appearing either as soloists or in one of the groups
known as the "Dixie Dandies," "Dixie Sweethearts," "Dixie Sisters,"
"Mammies," "Pickaninnies," or "Swanee Citizens." In this year's
production the entire cast sang such favorites as "Rise and Shine,"
"Great Day," "Old Man River," "I Got Rhythm," and "Camptown

Wegener of the Senior High School Art Department gave countless
hours of work to make this show a COLOSSAL PRODUCTION. Thus.
the show was, as in previous years, a big success.
During the course of the year the Choir presented many fine num-
bers including such works as "All Breathing Lite," "Listen to the
Lambs," "Lost in the Night," "So's I can Write My Name," "Let Us
Break Bread Together," "Tenebrae Factae Sunt," and "Hodie
Christus Natus Est."
Outstanding soloists during this season's concert appearances of
the Choir were, Darryl Goldberg, David Blanke, Ruth Hunke, Iohn
Boettcher, Catherine Smithers, Marilyn DeBusha, David Sherman,
and Bonnie Farr.
The well known Triple Trio, and Sophomore Boys' Quartette, all
members of the Choir, appeared before many church and civic
organizations of this city to entertain people with their harmony.
In Ianuary the Sophomore Quartette appeared on a Milwaukee
television show. .
On March 29 the annual District Music Festival was held at Berlin.
Entered in the contest from the Choir were thirty-three soloists, five
duet teams, the Sophomore Boys' Quartette, and the Triple Trio.
Those who received star, first place ratings, went on to the State
Festival in Madison. The entire Choir journeyed to Berlin on May 3
to participate in the District Festival held there.
How many ot us ever stop to think of music as a wondrous magic
link with God, taking sometimes the place of prayer when words
have failed us 'neath a weight of care. Music knows no country,
race, nor creed, but gives to each according to his need.

Mr. Jost-nh Schmitz. Director,
Here, there cmd everywhere one can detect the lasting influence the Senior
High School Band has had on its members. Organized "here" in 1922 by Mr.
loseph Schmitz, the band has grown from a membership of fifteen boys to that
of seventy girls and boys in 1952. At the time of organization, its survival and
success depended on the twice a week after-school sessions: meeting every
day, it now carries full scholastic credit. Further evidence of the influence
projected by the band was proved three years ago when the Parents' Music
Association generously assisted in purchasing the exceedingly attractive cardi-
nal and gray uniforms.
We have, here, in this organization a wealth of talent. Donald DeLap and
Dennis DeMets have developed amazing abilities in playing trumpet duets
and saxophone duets. Outstanding also in progress made is Clifford Lange, a
sophomore. Cliff has achieved the respect of all the band for his accomplish-
ments with his trombone.
A band of any caliber, of course, depends on all of its members and a
capable director. Mr. Schmitz, acknowledged here to be a top-notch leader, has
also been recognized everywhere to be one of the top trumpet players in the
United States. His splendid work with our band has been responsible for its
The band has influenced not only its members, but also the public by its
appearances here, there, and everywhere. All football and basketball games
were enlivened by the band's playing. Our assemblies, too, have been pepped

up by the presence of this musical organization. A KFIZ on-the-spot radio
broadcast from our gym, of the band playing lively marches and impressive
overtures proved the skill of these musicians. Civic celebrations, such as
parades and holiday programs, gave the band further opportunity to prove
that it is ct real asset to the community.
Recordings have often been made during regular class periods.
A fall concert and a fall festival were presented by the band. This spring,
the group undertook two major projects: the annual spring concert was pre-
sented at Roosevelt Iunior High and the organization entered the annual district
touranment held at Berlin May 3. As a result of preparation for and participa-
tion in these many activities, the band has developed into a fine musical
Everywhere blankets a wide-spread territory, just as our band covers many
fields. Probably the most distant point touched has been Korea. Boys who a
few years ago played for high school credit, are now playing in Korea for the
entertainment of our armed forces. Religious meetings have also been the
beneficiaries of talent developed in this organization. Then there are those
who take music seriously enough to make it their life work. A number of these
are now studying at universities all over the United States. One can be certain
to find that many of the members of local orchestras were members of our

of the school. It extends, as our Senior High Band does, to here, there and

The "52" Triple Trio has, as the groups before them, entertained for many
community organizations. They sang over KFIZ during National Education
Week, and again presented a broadcast during the Christmas season. A par-
ticularly heavy schedule of singing was undertaken during the week before
Christmas when carols were sung for many sundry groups, large and small.
The substitutes joined the "nine" along with Iohn Boettcher, David Blanke,
and Darryl Goldberg, to give their fellow students a splendid, varied assembly
program. This was the first ot the assemblies put on by students, during
In February "Mood Indigo," "Shortnin' Bread," and "Cla A Yo' Hands," all

The Girls Athletic Council, with Miss Andrew as the director, has served
the girls of our school in sports throughout the year. This group consists of
senior girls selected by the preceding council. However, there are other require-
ments that have to be satisfied to be eligible, some of which are an S average,
leadership, and an interest in sports.
This group strives to' get every girl in school to come out for at least one
sport. This year participation has been very good. The members have achieved
an exceptionally high record, but the 100 per cent goal is still to be reached.
However, each member will work continuously until it is attained in the future.
The capable leaders, Darlene Fritz and Lois Tilly, led speedball for a very
successful season. Bowling, one of the most popular sports, was led by three
hands: Carol Brown. Audrey Schultz, and Lola Whitby. Swimming is watched
over by Betty Wagner. Basketball, an always popular sport, was directed by
Donna Becker and Mary Hanson. Volleyball, a winter sport, was under the di-
rection of Dolores Axotis and Grace Hartl. The bats kept swinging under the
guidance of Ianet Rodden and Ianice Coulahan. Mary Hitzler, Margaret Hoff-
man, Anne Shafer, and Diane Peters directed Spring Sports.
Girls who stay at school at noon enjoy noon hour sports under Diane De-
Lorme, Alice Hensel, Nancy Hall, and Kathleen Herr.
G.A.C. is fun although it does require some work. The girls enjoy many
social events, and most of all have the satisfaction that they have helped
contribute something to the school during the year.
This group, since its organization in 1943, has achieved a high record and
deserves praise. Let's hope next year they can hit the 100 per cent mark.

Those five alert, enthusiastic students you saw sitting in the cheering section
rooting for Fondy were the Senior High School cheerleaders. Attired in their
snappy red and white uniforms, they did their job of cheering the team to
victory. Besides providing spirited leadership at basketball and football games.
they produced outstanding pep assemblies. They have contributed much to
the athletic success and co-operation of Senior High this past year. Most
of all they have accomplished the art of leadership which will aid their lives to
succeed as did such great cheerleader specialists as Kirk Corbeille and Esther
Halverson of the past.
This activity is fun although it does require hard Work and co-operation.
With practice held every Thursday noon, stiff and sore joints were common at
the end of each week. But still the cheerleaders say they've enjoyed every min-
ute of the work and fun.
The cheerleader most familiar to us is Ianet Gilbertson, the only senior and
three year member of the group. Other members of the "A" squad included
Ioan Wempner, Shirley Lueder, Sally Zellmer, Robert Cotanch, all juniors.
Let's congratulate them on a job well done despite occasional lack of school
spirit. The only substitute, Kathy Diedrich, did a very nice job, too.
Sorne time ago tryouts were held for those interested in making next year's
team. Since Ianet Gilbertson is the only senior there is room for one more. The
cheerleaders with the help of others, unable to make a clear decision, picked
both Charlene Newton and Marlene Schaetzel to fill Ianet's place-big shoes,
eh? However, next year there will be no substitute so the whole squad Will be
out there cheering at every game for victory.
The cheerleaders give their thanks to Miss Kneip for her advice and as-
sistance. She came to the practices, she took charge of the cheerleaders, and
she fulfilled these responsibilities to their fullest. We, too, thank her and the
cheerleaders for a successful season of cheerleading for 1951-1952.

With a promising nucleus from last year's team we ap-
proached the football season with high hopes of turning out
a winner. Nevertheless, it took a lot of juggling of personnel
and a tremendous amount of intensive drilling before any signs
of power and deception began to show up.
As always the first two Weeks reduced themselves to a
"grind" that was endured by only those candidates who like
the sport and are willing to go at it in the right spirit. Because
this year's aggregation went into those first several weeks with
the same desire has some of theother good teams we have had,
much was accomplished which set the stage for the great
showing we made at Kenosha. Many of us remembered the
shellacing, 45-12, by' the Big Eight Champs in the '50 season.
Coaches Capicik and Gores had the boys keyed for revenge-
and it was sweelfto the tune of 27-18.

Another game was needed to prove what sort of team we
really had. The Manitowoc game gave us the answer, a deci-
sive 15-8 victory. Infractions of the rules because of over-
aggressiveness prevented a greater margin. This victory gave
every indication that we might go all the way.
The Appleton jinx once again dashed our hopes against
the jagged rocks. After outplaying Appleton 'in every depart-
ment of the game we ended up on the short end of a 7-6 score.
We saw several scoring opportunities fade into thin air because
of penalties. The fourth game on our schedule turned out to be
a spirited and hard fought game and one of the greatest
comebacks ever witnessed on Fruth Memorial Field. East led
off with a 14-O lead in the first five minutes. lt gave Fondy

backers the feeling that this was the complete routing of our
Cardinals. It was everything but that. The hard work and
training in the previous weeks paid off. The Cardinals finally
got started and crushed a highly rated East eleven 28-14.
After winning the next two games against North and Central,
the "big one" against West was here. When the smoke cleared,
two exhausted teams and coaches left the field with a 20-20 tie.
The last game against Oshkosh was a clearcut win of 14-0
closing the season. We finished in second place with six wins,
one loss, one tie and still cussing that Appleton jinx.
The Iunior Varsity under the guidance of Wally Frook turned
in a creditable season, chalking up four wins against two
losses. Central, Oshkosh and Sheboygan North ltwicel fell

Many Card supporters thought that with the return of six
lettermen Coach Menzel's hoopsters would be strong con-
tenders this year. It seems, however, that they didn't take into
consideration that all the other teams of the valley were
equally or better fortified with experience. The 51-52 season
offered some of the toughest competition the Fox Valley has
The Cardinal five got off to a slow start, but as the season
progressed they developed into a well knit machine. Best
efforts were against Pulaski, Central, Manitowoc 127, Appleton
C27 and Port Washington. Although poor marksmanship bogged
us down offensively and was disappointing at times, we can
cheer about the defensive record that was one of the best in
recent valley play.

Players showing unusual improvement during the course of
the season were Hobbs, Wallin, Maze and Snyder. An impor-

For the first time in many years Fondy participated in the
W.I.A.A. State Tournament. We were eliminated in the finals
of the sectional by a strong Sheboygan Central team.

They were much more impressive than their 5-9 record. Their
success against the top teams is ample evidence of a strong
determined spirit. Team members were Elliot, Puls, Radtke,

Coach C. H. Merriman developed this year one of the strongest tennis teams ever to represent
Fondy Senior High. Up to this point the team remains undefeated in the seven matches played
thus far even against such high class competition as Oshkosh and Sheboygan North.
Players of this year's winning squad are Gordon Hammes, Iohn Covill, and Ierry Capelle, sen-
iorsg Bob Cotanch, Dennis DeMets, Donald Valin, Richard Wyatt, and Iohn Lueck, juniors: Rich-
ard Radtke, Ronald Ahner, Ierry Sebranke, and Dick Wischnewski, sophomores: Iames Moore
and Kenneth Larish, ninth grade.
Teams yet to be played, some for the second time, are West Bend, Manitowoc, Oshkosh,
North, Neenah, and Waupun. The Conference meet will be held on May 24 at Manitowoc,
while the State Meet will be on Iune 6-7 at Wauwatosa.
We all certainly hope that the team's good fortune continues throughout the remainder of the
tennis season and hope to see all the promising underclassmen back with their rackets next

The 1952 Fond du Lac Senior High School baseball edition is headed
toward o: successful season with a record of 6-3 to date.
The Cards defeated Waupun in the opener with Iaber and Murray
combining to hurl a no-hitter. They then defeated North twice, 7-3 and
19-0, the second game being a no-hit, no-run game by Tom Murray.
Fondy was then beaten by Manitowoc 2-0 and 5-1. They came back
strong in a double-header trouncing Central 5-1, 6-4 and then stopping
Ripon 5-1. They then lost to the undefeated state powerhouse, Men-
asha, 6-5. Only a twin bill remains-that with our arch rival, Oshkosh.
Coach lack Putman welcomed six returning lettermen for his 1952
squad. Fondy's hopes were pinned on a strong pitching staff composed
of Iaber, Murray, Olson and underclassmen Elliot and Tulledge. Rather
weak hitting had to be compensated for by good pitching. Iaber and
MLu'ray did most of the chucking.
The Fondy infield is composed of juniors with Sipple at first: Parker,
second: Snyder, short: and Rosenthal, third. Stephany was used at
first when Sipple was injured and is the utility man capable of playing
the infield or outfield. The outfield is made up of Ambroso, Kalabolas,
Kremer and versatile Iaber when he isn't pitching. Shennan, Barthuly
and Kohlman make up the catching staff. Reserves are Fox, Zwicky
Fond du Lac had an eleven game schedule, the most ambitious in
history. They picked rough competition for their non-conference tune-

successful season. Of the group that returned, the following nine were letter-
men: Les Wilhelms, Bob King, Mark Whelan, Glenn Demoske, Bob Michler,
Wayne Rose, Gordon Kimpel, Glenn Bestor, and Al Baumgardt.
The conference relays and the qualifying district meet for the state were held
at our F ruth Field while the conference meet was held at Appleton. Other com-
petitions were dual meets with Sheboygan Central, Sheboygan North, Oshkosh

competition in the state, Les Wilhelms placed third in the pole vault with ll'
10", while Glenn Bestor took fifth with ll' Z". Bob King placed second in the
low hurdles. To date King has been undefeated in the hundred yard dash,
two hundred yard dash, and the low hurdles.
Besides King, Bestor, and Wilhelms, Whelan has come along fast and is a
sure point getter.
Newcomers on the squad who have been doing outstanding work are Bill

Golf, being revived in 1951 after a lapse of ten years, was put on
a much expanded level in the 1952 season. Several additional
matches were scheduled for the '52 campaign. The following teams
were played this spring: Oshkosh, Central, North, Manitowoc, and
Waupun. The matches were played as doubles, quadrangulars and
For the first time in Valley history a conference meet was held on
May 31 at Oshkosh.
This year's interest was high with many of the boys back from the
1951 season. Among these are Howard Hobbs, and Dick Weisbach,
seniors: lim Stoegbauer, a junior: and Tom Puls and Ed Kiltz, soph-
omores. Others showing much promise who came out for the first
time this year are Bob Eder and Iohn Harlow.
The 1952 season will give the boys much needed experience, and
with the excellent group of sophomores returning for next season We
hope to break into the win column more regularly.
Both the managements of the Fond du Lac Country Club and the
South Hills Club were very cooperative in offering the use of their
facilities for practice and meets.
On Iune 5-6 the W.l.A.A. is sponsoring a State Golf Meet at lanes-
ville. Along with a number of other Fox Valley teams Fond du Lac
will be there a-putting-away. Good luck, fellows.
