It is the function of our Board of Education to employ a Superintendent of Schools and
cofoperate with him in securing teachers and other employees to properly conduct adequate
schools in the community.
The Board of Education should act as a policyfforming body rather than 1n an executive
capacity. The Board should adopt a general course of procedure and place its execution directly
in the hands of the Superintendent of Schools. The Board should see to it that workable poli-
cies are carried out by the Superintendent.
It behooves parents to cofoperate with the teachers, especially in problems involving ques'
tions of discipline. The Board should choose school executives and teachers with the utmost
care and then back them to the limit during their tenure of office.
Pres. Board of Education.

preserve and care for it and thus keep green its branches in memory of these true sons of the
republic Who nurtured the tree of liberty with their blood.
To MISS BERTHA SEWARD, who, with her pracf
tical knowledge and quiet ways as class adviser, has guided
us through our three years in high school, we, the class of
'38, appreciatively dedicate our year book.

I. Boese, Mr. Bray, L. McKeand
In Appreciation To Supt. F. C. Bray
In the spring of 1922 Mr. Bray held his first commencement in Fort Atkinson High School.
Then sixty-nine graduates received their diplomas. This year, we, numbering one hundred and
five, help to make this his seventeenth commencement. On behalf of the class, we wish to ex'
press our appreciation to him as a teacher, a wise counselor, and a loyal friend. His long term
of service here is a record of achievement that in itself should bring inspiration to those with
whom he has worked.
Our school is justly proud of the fact that Mr. Bray's abilities and accomplishments have
won for him the presidency of the Southern Wisconsin Teachers Association. The wide circle
of friends with whom he has worked in the state these many years have helped to bring this
honor to him.
Last but not least of his accomplishments is the one of which he frequently boasts. Six of
his former students are now cofworkers with him. Oscar Bienfang, Laura Wagner, and Irene
Boese were among those who greeted him as students when he arrived, Lucille McKeand, Edna
Northey, and Mary Ludeman followed laterg these six with the other teachers are listed among
the "tried and true" of his faculty and ofHce staff. Has any other school such a record?
Woaewaacf , , ,
Words form an inadequate picture to the
eye, and so the class of " 'ESM in compiling
our volume of the "Tchogeerrah" have tried
through words and snapshots to review the
events of the past year. If, in the eyes of
our readers, we have done this, we shall feel
that we have succeeded in our task.

Although memories may fade,
And remembrance may grow dim,
Still my thoughts of you, dear classmate,
Shall never, never end.
Your love is a precious treasureg
Your smile has made me gladg
Your sympathy is my greatest pleasure.
In fact, you're the grandest pal I've had.
When the midnight of life draws near
And you look back to this high school year,
May you remember our friendship,
As a treasure to hold most dear.
When the sunset of life approaches
And the stream of life flows slow,
May you look upon your school days,
As a morn of brilliant glow.

The Senior class of '38 started out on its High School journey with President
Willard Pitzner, Vicefpresident Shirley Case, and Secretaryffreasurer Bob Johnson
as our officers. Ruby Stearns was the advisor for 193 5 . E
Ivliss Seward took Miss Stearns' place as advisor for the next three years.
Willard Pitzner was refelected president for our Sophomore year, Marjorie Fisher
was chosen for vicefpresident, and Joseph Urban for secretaryftreasurer. Our class
was well represented on the debate team in 1936 by Bob Zenk, Jean Ward, and
Joseph Urban. On April 24 Carl Trieloif and Joyce Kuenzi were crowned king and
queen of the 1936 prom at the Sophomore prefprom.
The Junior class elected Robert Feller, Willard Pitzner, and Joseph Urban for
its leaders. The main event was the junior prom, of course. Frank Gshwandtner
and Shirley Case were the cofchairmen of the prom committee and Willard Pitzner,
as king,' chose Barbara Hagemann for the queen. Our class played an important
part on the athletic and debate teams in 1937.
For our last and most important year, the class of '38 refelected the oflicers
of the preceding year. Cofcaptains Dean Helwig and Frank Gshwandtner under
Coach Freudenberg led the Fort Cardinals through another successful football sea'
son. Captain Willard Pitzner did the same for the basketball team. Preparations
for the annual started in full swing with Dorothy Schloesser as editorfinfchief and
Betty McKoane as assistant" editor. We decided to make our graduation more im-
pressive by wearing caps and gowns. In a very short time our journey as the class of
'38 will be over, but we shall always recall with pleasure the four years we spent to'
gether in the Fort High School.
,Tis hard to break the tender cord
When love has bound the heart,
'Tis hard, so hard, to speak the words
"We must forever partf,
Thy memory will he cherished
As on through life we go.
Oh, we all have missed you,
For we loved you so.

One day the Senior class went on a picnic. Before they entered the woods, they
came to a fence and EVELYN said, "I will TELT the BAR down so we can go
through." BOB the SON of JOHN helped SHIRLEY carry the CASE of sandwiches.
They were very heavy and at first MARIE wanted to hire a DRAEGER to bring
I After the group had walked down the path through the woods for some distance,
they missed a FELLER. It was GERLOFF, he was lost in the FORREST. Everyone
began to look for him. MAXINE climbed a CRABTREE to see if she could sight him.
At last a MARSHALL by the name of LUCILLE found him with EDGAR. They
were about to ROL OFF a log.
GENEVIEVE lost the key to her GAR LOCK on the path and couldn't find it.
AGNES was rather RUDE because she wouldn't even aid in the search. Then JAMES
found a TU QRJ TTLE on the river bank. WARREN wanted to PARKER in the
lunch basket, but James wouldn't let him. He wanted to eat. MARION found a
SNELL too, but no snakes. HARLOW lost his POUTSCH and HELEN never had
one-she used a pocketbook.
CHARLES scared up a COVEY of quail while he was looking for GRAOIE but
JOSEPH said she had left for a more URBAN atmosphere.
When lunch was ready, SHERER was going to HERTEL a huge pile of logs,
but ELLEN JEAN decided to WARD him off to see some sheep and ram in a nearby
pasture. ANITA saw one and called, "Oh RAMSEY, RAMSEY, come and let me see
your big horns." But she soon changed her mind.
Several hours passed and it was time to go home. LLOYD stamped his foot and
said, "I HAKE to go home!"
DORIS replied, L'Be good or you KNOERR come again."
Then RUSSELL asked, HWENHAM I going to get home. It's getting dark. Alf
ready on this JUNE night I can hear the HINKLE of the church bell."
' While going out of the woods, DOROTHY saw a bird with a strange looking
BIECK. "What a funny looking CLOUTE he is," said PEROY.
L'Does the ENGAN in his wings make him go?" asked BETTY.
Said RUSSELL, "His color is a funny GREEN."
"I know why it is," said JEAN. "That's because it lives in a HOLLABUSH that's
the same color".
Then ISABELLE saw a LEHMAN who said it was time for all good children to
go home. So oif went DONALD and the rest in TEWS and threes. The picnic was
Resolved: That all Monday classes be terminated in the interest of the bettering of social
conditions of the Fort Atkinson High School.
Affirmative Speaker: All ye honorable judges, my most worthy opponent, and friends!
Due to the woeful lack of sufficiency of space, we, who are burdened with this cantankerous
question, have agreed to the use of only such evidence and opinions as are provided by the
members of the school who would be directly affected by such a proposal, fbreathj and there'
fore may I present the following in support of the question as stated.
I Miss Rita Leinfelder: "I arn thoroughly convinced that this is the type of thing needed. It
will also give an extra day a week with those 'collich guys'!"
Miss Aida Larsen: "I thought about the same as Rita as concerns the boyfriends and I
should like to add that the adoption of such a proposal is bound to make history."
Mr. Ernest Holmberg: "Greatest thing yet! Now I can really get at this spring house'
Miss Laura-Wagner: "After viewing this proposal from all angles, I must say that it's plane
to be seen that it's bound to give us a square deal because it is based on such a solid bases and,
all in all, I must say that it certainly is acute idea."
Dean Helwig: "In this Case I'd say it Shirley is a good idea cause it'll give me a chance
to recouperate from those weekends."
Eugene Ludeman: "Swell idea! A three days' sleep is always better than two."
Bob Ganser: "Oh Goody! Then I'll be able to help my mother wash!"
I Betty McKoane: "An excellent idea. That'll only leave four days a week of that terrible
Therefore I appeal to you to come to the only ultimate conclusion that can possibly be
reached and declare yourselves loyal supporters to the cause of so definitely noteworthy a prop-
osition and show the entire-time!
Negative Speaker: All ye honorable judges, most worthy opponents, and friends.
In opposition to the adoption of the proposal of the affirmative, I, as negative speaker, ask
you to reconsider the proposition in the light of the quotations and opinions which I shall ad'
vance directly and which, I must inform you, were as carefully and meticulously selected as were
those of the afhrmative, fbreathj and represent a like crossfsection of those who would be affected
by the adoption of their proposal.
Mr. Frank C. Bray: "Impossible We have a required number of days to be made up each
year and we must Hurry, Hurry, Hurry as it is."
Mr. Raymond F. Beach: "I consider this a direct attempt to eliminate the possibility of my
famous 'Blue Monday Tests' and wish to state that I shall oppose this most emphatically."
Mr. Arthur Freudenberg: "What! And miss a whole day of boys' gym and football or
basketball-I should say not."
Miss Irene W. Base: "I should say that the missing of a day of Lab. would bring complif
cated reactions among the students. The properties and proportions of this proposal are too
elementary to succeed. Such things must be taken with a grain of Sodium Chloride."
Bill Neilly: "We'd only have to make it up anyway and I. for one, am for getting this over
with. If this results in somethun' awful don't say I didn't 'toad' you so."
"Chuckyfboy" Udey: "I don't see the need for a Monday rest. If I can take it I don't see
what Helwig's got to hollar about."
Eugene Tilton: "Oh no! Not till Freudenhergs send their clothes to the laundry. I've had
too many threats."
Miss Emogene Haferman: "Gracious! Vfhy that would be simply awful. Think of only
being in school four days a week."
And in view of the evidence just presented I ask you, as the clear thinkers that you are,
to reverse the decision as suggested by the affirmative speaker and prove yourselves to be trust'
worthy in matters of great importance bv declaring your undivided. wholehearted, complete sup'
port of the present system as it stands and thereby-time!
Judges' decision: "Never saw anything like it. They both lose!"

Ta me its turribly new.
Sence it seems I can't avoid it
I might's well git ta writin'
But I gotta decide on a subjick
That's worthwhile and excitin'

JUNIOR CLASS FAIRY TALE
Dob's son was a Merrifman who felt very Friskfy one day, for it was really the
first day of the season and the Sommerfeldt good compared to the winter. He decided
to go into Deforest because he was tired of Urban life. Although the day was Dargfej
and Heese, he kept on walking until he came to a Black Poole. Standing near it was a
Wolf and a ram. He got scared so he ran to Heide behind a Sengbuschg anyway he
thought the bush sang but it was only a Siegel. He started to run toward his Covey'
hole but he was Kunkelfed on the head and fell down. He got up Gumblefing and
Habelfed on his way. He was almost home when Nell's son came to meet him. They
played the Slaght machine before they went home to Donkle doughnuts in their coffee,

ROCKTON GAME 21f0--HERE-SEPTEMBER 21
Coach Freudenberg's Fort gridders certainly looked good in the first game of the
season. Fort scored in each of the first three quarters. The first score was made on a
neat pass from Cofcaptain Gshwandtner to Roloff, who snared the ball on the twofyard
line. Roloff again scored in the second quarter. The final marker was made by Pitzner
after a steady march to the fivefyard line. As a whole, Fort played well, the line
opened holes that aided the backiield in gaining some speed. Rockton's large and
scrappy team closed up those holes at the line of scrimmage. The Cardinals made
twelve first downs and gained ninety yards on passes. One of the amusing sidelights
was that time when Rockton's fullback with practically an open field, was stopped by
Johnson who simply hung on to the sleeve of his jersey.
BURLINGTON SNAPS FORT'S WIN STREAK 7f6-HERE-SEPTEMBER 24
A touchdown on a "sleeper" pass on the first play of the game was too much for
Fort, even though the Cards outfplayed Burlington. Coach "Dinty" Moore's boys
startled the spectators almost as much as they did the local gridders. Coach Freudenf
berg's Cards came back, and after an exchange of punts, Friedel took a pass from
Gshwandtner to cross the goal. Fort's defense tightened after the first minutes of play
and not once for the remainder of the game did Burlington get inside of the fortyfyard
line. As the second quarter ended Fort had the pigskin on the opponent's sevenfyard
line. The fourth quarter started slowly and not until the last few minutes of play did
Fort uncork a mass of passes, most of them incomplete. Fort threatened to score three
times in the final period, but Burlington succeeded in checking each, once on the six'
teenfyard line. The game ended with Fort trying desperately to complete a pass for a
score. The offensive work of Gshwandtner and Covey stood out for Fort.
FORT OPENS CONFERENCE WITH EDGERTON 3210 VICTORY-HERE-OCTOBER 1
With a complete "reversal of form" Fort's Cards got off to a swell start in the
Southern Six Conference. The linemen charged hard and the backs mowed down the
opponents which gave Fort the victory, Tilton and Covey starred. Tilton shifted from
center to quarterback, Ganser to center, and his tackle post was occupied by Johnson.
Fort registered twelve first downs. Pitzner showed more drive than ever before when
he got away on a cut back for thirtyfthree yards. The Cardinals scored their first
touchdown on a steady march down the field. Before the first half, with only five sec'
onds to go, Gshwandtner tossed a pass to Ed. Miller, he lateraled to Covey who ran
fortyfeight yards to a goal. Before the second half was over Fort scored two more
touchdowns, and Fort's victory of 32f0 will go down in history.
FORT TRIMS MONROE 40-6-THERE-OCTOBER 8
Monroe bowed to Fort as Fort defeated them in a "freefforfall" lateral pass game.
Fort took an early lead and stayed there. The Cards worked well, both offensively and
defensively. Monroe, at times, showed excellent offense, but at no time made a good
defensive showing. Fort's scoring streak was led by Gshwandtner with three touch'
downs, Roloff two and Pitzner picked up the other. Fort piled up twentyffour first
downs. Monroe lost one golden opportunity when it fumbled over Fort's goal line. It
was the first time in the season that the Cardinals looked like champions.
FORT LOSES TO STOUGHTON 20f19-THERE-OCTOBER 15
The football game between the Stoughton eleven and the Fort Cardinals, in which
Stoughton won 20 to 19, was the type of game you read about in fiction magazines but
seldom see. Bill Neilly, fighting left guard, covered himself with glory as he smashed
over the opponent's line.
Page'Fiftyfeight 1 ,
At the end of the first half Stoughton led Fort 7 to 0, but Fort tallied two touch'
downs before the second half was ten minutes old. Kvitle followed by tearing Fort's
line to shreds in four plays and Christopher plunged over the goal on an end play of
seventeen yards. The boys-really blocked with a bone rattling crispness, and opened
holes big enough to drive a wagon through. The 'Burlington Special" displayed by
Luebke, tightened and kept Stoughton constantly in hot Water. In the fourth quarter
Gshwandtner went over for another goal. The next play, in which Stoughton took the
ball on the kickfoff and raced ninetyfeight yards to a touchdown, cost Fort the ball'
game. It was Fort's first conference defeat since 1935 when it lost to Watertown four'
teen to seven.
FORT UPSETS WATERTOWN 2Sf21-HERE-OCTOBER 22
The Fort Cards handed the Watertown Goslings their first defeat this season at
jones Park. The Cards went after the Goslings' scalp right from the start. They took
the ball on the opening kickfoff and marched uninterrupted to a touchdown by Pitzner,
who smashed over from the threefyard line. Watertown came back, received the ball,
and went down the field by runs and short passes, to tie the score. Bob Ganser, who
played the greatest game of his career, all but tore the Watertown backs apartg and
"Toad" Neilly, who had been injured, was the "sparkplug" of the Fort line that
stopped Watertown from scoring on the eightfyard line in the last minutes of play.
Fort's brilliant triumph sent a crowd of 2,5 00 spectators home buzzing and lifted the
Cardinals back to the top of the Southern Six Conference. .
WISCONSIN HIGH 19f6-THERE-OCTOBER 30
Fort took its worst beating in years when Wisconsin High of Madison whipped
the Cards 19f6 on BreesefStevens field. The team just couldn't click and the harder the
boys tried the worse they got. The most pitiful part of the showing came early in the
fourth quarter when the Cards couldn't push the ball over on the fivefyard line. Fort
outfgained the Badger preps four to one and did score a touchdown in the final minf
utes of play on a perfect pass from Gshwandtner to Luebke, who raced fiftyfive yards
to score. Bill Neilly suffered a broken bone early in the game and Bob Feller did not
don a suit because of a wrenched knee received in practice earlier in the week. With
the two regular guards out, chances were slim for the Cards.
JEFFERSON AND HORICON GAMES CANCELLED
One of the oldest rivalries in Southern Wisconsin, involving Fort and Jefferson,
has terminated with the decision of Jefferson school oiiicials to call off the gridiron relaf
tions. Reasonsz' Many protests from the followers of the Jefferson team. The, injuries
of the lighter Jefferson squad necessitated the end of their rivalry before the final
battle on Armistice Day.
The game with Horicon was cancelled because of the serious condition of Robert
Ganser, regular center, who was in the Watertown hospital due to injuries sustained
in a previous football game. All festivities for homecoming, including the dance, were
Fort tied for second place and led the conference in scoring with a total of 122
points. Frank Gshwandtner took second place in individual scoring with fortyfone
points. Fourteen of Fort's fifteen men graduate this year. j
Our popular cheerleader team consisted of Evelyn Bartelt, Dorothy Wolfram,
Marion Habel, and Doris Knoerr. Under the direction of Miss Larsen these girls did
much to increase the pep and enthusiasm of our student body. Their costumes of
white skirts and red blouses were earned by selling FORT emblems.
Doris and Evelyn, the senior members, were awarded i'F's" this year, in the future
tryouts will be held to fill vacancies.
SEPTEMBER 17, 1937
It seems that we have real talent in our school. At least we think that Charlie
McCarthy has nothing on Barbara Hagemann who was Carl McCartwheels in a cute
skit presented before the Main Room. It has been said that Eddie Bergen could get
some good pointers from Lillian Trottier as the manager of a "Dummy," QNO off
fense, Barbaraj Marie Willitz imitated W. C. Fields to a "T" as Wobblefu Free
just like the real McCoy, Carl Lee McCartwheels pulled some funny boners
by laying a finger on some of the football boys and teasing them about their "big
moments." Here's a sample. "Frankie, Doesn't Min know the way home at noon
in broad daylight or do you have to guide her?"
Ready Burnen burned up Dean Helwig by reading a not.e from him. This is
the last part:
"My only weakness is a case of S. C."
Wobble-u Free Wheels lived up to his "rep" by riding a bicycle on the stage.
When asked how he got there, he replied, "Oh, I just rolled in."
As a messenger, Gertie Wagner couldn't have been better if she'd been trained
by the Western Union.
Anyhow, we all had a lot of fun while it lasted. More power to Emogene
Haferman, the "thinker upper" of it!!
SEPTEMBER 24, 1937
For a little while all of us thought we would really have some "extra special"
excitement in the main room. While Mr. Beach was giving announcements at 3 :36,
a low, grumbling could be heard from the back of the room. Eugene Ludeman and
Joe Urban were lighting.
Glaring at each other, they were muttering threats back and forth. They
raised their voices and became tense with anger. Finally, as each one's anger rose,
their voices became audible. This is what we heard:
Joe: fhissing between his teethj I'll make you eat those words, Ludemann.
For two cents I'd take a poke at you right now.
Eugene: Come outside and say that.
Joe: I won't go outside for anybody. Let's have it out right here. A swell
sport you are. Why, I've a mind to knock your head off.
QThe room was tense. We knew that wouldn't last long. It didn't eitherj.
Mr. Beach: Listen here, you two. I'll not tolerate such stuff in this school.
Pack your books and get out! tHe acted as if he meant it. Eugene went.,
Joe: fln his best pleading voicej But, Mr. Beach, he said things that weren't
true. He said that Mr. Freudenberg wasn't even trying to make the boys work. And
he said that we were going to lose the game tonight. Why, everyone knows we're
going to run the score so high it'll take a pair of field glasses to see it.
Mr. Beach: That will be enough. Come on, you cheer leaders, let's show the
boys we all aren't so pessimistic as Eugene is.
And did that little hoax ever put pep into the old F. H. S.!! We nearly yelled
our lungs out and I'm sure we raised the roof at least 6 inches!!

ROBERT PARSONS .............. Secretary N. O. ECKLEY ...........,............ Advisor
Last June, twenty members of our local chapter of Future Farmers of America
went on a five day camping trip to the Big Lakes region near Chetek, Wisconsin. The
caravan consisted of four cars, four trailers, and four leaders with twenty boys.
The following boys made the trip: Richard Northey, Harvey Regelein, Edwin
Gumble, Robert Van Horn, James McGowan, Franklin Borchardt, Robert Mehltretter,
Glen Schwemmer, Russel Klement, Edwin Miller, Herbert Gumble, Robert McIntyre,
August Vollmar, Billy Schreiner, Allen Hetts, Harry Miller, Eugene Smith, Harlow
Wisch, and Billy Hoffman.
We were accompanied by our adviser, N. O. Eckleyg H. W. Hoffman, L. C.
Leak, principal of Emery Junior High School, Russell Frost, Junior Editor of Hoard's
Dairyman, and Edward Binkert.
On the way to Chetek we visited the State Brown Swiss picnic at Tomah, and
Irvine Park at Chippewa Falls.
Our chapter was fortunate in that our adviser is part owner in a large logffaced
cottage in the woods on the shores of Lake Chetek, and therefore we did not have to
pay any rent. This cut down our expenses a great deal and each boy had to pay only
five dollars for a five day vacation which will never be forgotten.
The work of preparing meals was divided equally among all the boys, a different
committee serving each meal. Dairy products-milk, cream, butter, and cheese, were
used in abundance. The boys brought much of their food from homefhomemade bread,
cookies, cakes, canned meats, potatoes, apple sauce, canned fruits, jellies, pickles, eggs,
"There's too much feed in the lakes. It's too windy. The weather's too cold. The
water's too rough." You know the line. It's the usual fish story. The fishing always
was better last week, or last year or any other time except when you are there. But we
didn't mind this. We had the time of our lives. And anyhow, we didn't call it a fish'
ing trip. We called it a camping trip. Our five days were packed with fishing, games,
picnics, swimming, storyfswapping, relaxation, and sightseeing.
Things always to be remembered about the trip:

The COMMERCIAL CLUB under the direction of Miss Seward had twelve
members and met on Tuesday evenings to discuss various forms of commercial papers,
business activities, and business relations.
A large group of girls, calling themselves the CHARM CLUB, met once a week
to discuss various subjects of interest to the modern girl. This group was under the
direction of Miss Leinfelder. Dorothy Wilcox, Pauline Urban, and Dorothy Wolfram
acted as oilicers.
The SEWING AND KNITTING CLUB, a group of seventeen girls, feel that
they have accomplished much in the way of sweaters, dresses and scarfs. Miss Graper
and Miss Converse directed the group, Johanna Pagels was president and Jean Mullen,
Twentyfone students with twentyfone cameras organized the CAMERA CLUB un'
der the supervision of Miss Aslakson, and Lois Krauss, president. The big event for
the club was when the faculty allowed them to take candid shots while in classes.
The STAMP CLUB, consisting of only six members under the direction of Mr.
Freudenberg was organized for the purpose of trading and selling stamps and in this
way building up their own collections. Robert Luedtke acted as president.
The BOYS' COOKING CLASS under Miss Boese, seems to have had the most fun.
They made many good things and feel that they will be a big help to their future wives
because of the experience they have had in dish washing. fEspecially Homer Mertf
schingj Champion eater of the "goodies" made proved to be Carlyle Urban!
A group of students, feeling that a school of our size needed a school newspaper,
formed the Journalism Club which started publication of the,"SEfHI". The members
were as follows: William Hedberg, editorfinfchiefg Ruth Nemitz, assistant editor,
George Pfefferkorn, Walter Pagels, Evelyn Schloesser, Robert Zenk, Robert Feller,
Emogene Haferman, Lucia Mack, Lillian Trottier, Russell Berkley, Jeanette Loga, Joan
Black and Jean Crerar, department editors, Marjorie Fisher and Gladys Zickerman,
A student publication, the staff feels, does much to create school initiative, sponsor
school spirit and keep townspeople, as well as students, informed regarding school ac'
tivities. Our goal is to have printed issues in the future instead of the present mimeof

When clubs were again organized this fall, the Dramatic club, much to everyone's
surprise and Miss Larsen's great pleasure, was found with about one-hundred prospecf
tive members. Since such a large group would be a trifle hard to manage, even for Miss
Larsen, it was decided that the organization should be divided into smaller divisions and
as a result nine groups with approximately eleven or twelve members in each were
started. The following were selected as chairmen of their respective groups: Joseph
Urban, Dorothy Schloesser, Marion Snell, Betty McKoane, Shirley Case, Dorothy
West, Marion Yackels, Mary Ann Kelley, and Doris Knoerr.
Formerly the club's sole objective was the presentation of plays. This year, with
evidence of so much other talent the activity of the club was changed so as to include
other forms of entertainment as well, and so was born the "Forum Club".
Officers were next chosen, and the following were selected to serve: Bob Zenk,
President, Barbara Hagemann, Vice President, Shirley Case, Secretary, Ellen Jean
Ward, Treasurer, Elmer Cberleitner, Property Manager, June DeVoll, Make Up,
Dorothy West, Wardrobe Mistress.
The purpose of the club was to give each individual member an opportunity to
present himself before an audience and to display his or her various talents. At the
regular Tuesday meetings each successive group was given complete charge of a prof
gram and usually a play and several additional numbers were given. As a result mu'
sical numbers, humorous readings, various bits of vocal work, and tap dancing were all
included thus practically every member of the club was given a chance to show what he
This year an additional activity was included. Through the cooperation of the
Lions Club, which furnished transportation, many outside programs were given. These
included an afternoon's entertainment for the wives of visiting Boy Scout leaders at
the Legion rooms, P. T. A. programs at the Royce, Black Hawk, and Tamarack View
Schools, a Senior High P. T. A. program, a number in a rural drama program, a Cath'
olic Women's Club program, a Cleaners program. These programs were made up of
musical selections and one of the ten one act plays presented this year.
The Club has now in its possession a fine makefup kit purchased with money
earned at the highly successful Christmas party. The school very kindly furnished the
materials for a stage setting which was built by Mr. Sundt with Robert Zenk and
Elmer Oberleitner assisting.
We consider this year an unusually successful one for the Forum Club, and Miss
Larsen and the club appreciate the splendid cooperation of each member and of the
community in helping us to carry out our motives.
For the first time in years an intramural program was started among the boys.
Coach Freudenberg and Mr. Bienfang were the faculty advisors. Throughout the year
the boys took an active interest and besides having a great deal of fun the participants
developed unlocked for skill in the various sports.
In the fall a touch football league was organized in such a manner that each gym
class was represented by four teams. After class eliminations the championship team
of each class entered a round robin tournament to determine the champions of the
school. The team headed by Robert Teed took first honors because of their ability to
run as well as pass.
A Wednesday night basketball league was then organized for boys who were not
out for Varsity.
The six teams with captains are as follows:
A Bears .....................................,.... ... .,...,,..,, ......,. D EAN MATTHEWS
Creamputfs ....... ............. J OHN GATES
Eagles .......... ,..,... D EAN PETERSON
Cardinals .,..... ......... W ALTER PAGELS
Lions ......... ...... R OBERT ROBERTS
Badgers ........................,.....,,....................,....................... RUSSELL BERKLEY
The Bears won the championship by defeating the Badgers. Russell Berkley, Rob'
ert Nelson, and Warren Parker were high scorers of the league.
The farm boys who played noon hours had a league consisting of four teams and
they, too, proved that they were real basketball players,
An interfclass elimination tournament consisting of the best players of each class
was then held. The juniors won the championship game by defeating the seniorsg the
freshman won consolation honors by defeating the sophomores. Medals were given to
The climax of the intramural program came on March eleventh, when a crowded
gym watched the champion juniors play the faculty team led by the great Freudenberg.
He, with Ross, Sundt, Bienfang and Holmberg, played a fast game and surprised
everyone by their stamina. They just wouldn't stop running and couldn't miss. The
juniors went down in defeat when the game ended with the score 33 to 27 in favor of
the faculty. Russell Berkley was high scorer for the game and Coach Freudenberg was
next in line.
Following the basketball season the intramural sports program consisted of volley
ball, kittenball and horseshoe. As the year ends, the enthusiasm for the year's sport
program is undiminished.

It was the first day of school. After a rather hectic day of meeting strange faces
and of trying to "it in", Miss Frey had a vision.
More than a hundred girls were packed into a room of the high school. They
called themselves the G. A. A. What could they be doing? From all appearances, they
were electing oflicers. Evelyn Bartelt was chosen president, and Arlene Klassy the
treasurer. Maryann Kelley was the "Point Secretary", and Doris Knoerr the "Corref
Then that mental picture vanished.
The scene changed and she saw the various heads of sports participating in that
particular sport over which each presided.
Down in the high school gym, Dorothy West, as referee of the basketball game,
was blowing a shrill whistle! Dorothy Wolfram had just made a home run while play'
ing kittenball behind the school. Marion Yackels was high jumping, her favorite of all
track and field events. Marion Snell was "spiking the ball" in volleyball. Marie Willitz
was hiking around the two bridges. Barbara Hagemann was sending across an "ace"
at the tennis courts, as usual. Down at the pond, Marjorie Fisher was proving her
ability at ice skating. Sally Ann Linke rode past on a bicycle, which suddenly became a
horse. Jeanne Hollabush was sliding down hill 'ibellyfflopf'
just as quickly other visions appeared and vanished. Eunice Darge had just scored
a 'Lbull's eye" while practicing archery. Kathleen Kelley had made a "killfshot" in
ping pong. Helen Poutsch had made a strike in bowling.
Then those scenes, too, vanished. Suddenly a group of girls was going on a hike, gig'
gling, and yelling all the way. Quick as a wink the same group was sliding down hill.
Then they were dancing. Evidently they were hostesses to scores of students at a school
party. Tournament games galore were being played in basketball and volleyball.
Then Miss Frey started. She looked around her. Had she been dreaming? Of
course she had, but what a wonderful vision. The best part of it was that the nine
months of the school year brought reality to this pleasant dream.
Pleasant dreams in the future, Miss Frey!

Although outscoring a veteran Cooney five the last half, the
inability to work the ball into a shooting range of the basket caused
the defeat of the Cardinals in their first nonfconference game of
the season. The score was 19f17. Gshwandtner was the spark'
plug in the Fort attack and connected for ten points to lead both
teams in scoring.
A desperate Cardinal five failed to collect valuable points the
first three quarters of the gameg trailing then 18f7 they began
hitting the hoop but too late to overcome the large lead Cooney
had. The final score was 2Ofl 6. Gshwandtner played best for Fort,
scoring three field goals.
WISCONSIN HIGH-THERE-DECEMBER 17
In its first conference game of the season a very impressive
Fort Cardinal five humbled a stubborn Wisconsin High Hve to the
tune of 25322, at the University Field House. Playing by far the
best game of the season the Cardinals started off witha bangg
Wisconsin High led at the half by a 12f11 count.
Fine ball handling and fast breaks finally downed the power'
ful Madison aggregation. Scoring honors were evenly divided with X
Captain Pitzner and Gshwandtner leading the team with seven k, N
points each. Tilton and Kammer were right behind with six and lan le
five points respectively.
Fort rolled up its second league victory of the season with a score of 3918. Until
the last quarter it was anybody's ball game but then Fort scored fifteen points while
holding Edgerton to three. Luebke's great passing in the last quarter enabled the Fort
forward line to collect as many points as they didg Pitzner was high scorer with thirf
teen pointsg Kammer and Gshwandtner followed with seven and six points respectively.
An overconfident Fort five barely escaped with a Z9-Z2 victory from their tradif
tional rivals at Jefferson in a nonfconference encounter, after exhibiting a fine brand
1 f of basketball against their two conference opponents.
In a rough and tumble game at Monroe, the Fort Cardinals
suffered their first conference setback, by the score of 3402. Fort
was guilty of seventeen personal fouls and four technical fouls,
while Monroe committed only ten personals.
So evenly matched were these two teams that it took a field
goal in the last minute by "Tilly" to decide the winner. Most of
l the time the game was a defensive battle. Pitzner gathered twelve
points and Tilton six while Nyhagen led the opponents with eight
points, making three field goals on sensational left handed hook
shots. The score was 23f21.
WATERTOWN-THERE-JAN UARY 28
By handing Watertown a 24 to 20 defeat the Fort Atkinson
Cardinals jumped into a tie with Monroe for first place. Playing
his last game of high school competition Frank Gshwandtner scored
seven points, while holding his own man scoreless. Capt. Pitzner
and Tilton each turned in a fine performance scoring eight and six
WISCONSIN HIGH-HERE-FEBRUARY 4
Playing before the largest crowd of the season, and opening
up the second half of the conference season Fort again demon'
strated their tight defensive tactics by downing the luckless Madif
son Cagers 20 to 15. Pitzner was high scorer.
JEFFERSON-HERE-FEBRUARY 8 I
In the last athletic contest ever to be played between the two
schools Fort put the finishing touches on Jefferson in a nonfcon-
ference game by a score of 41 to 20. Twelve men saw action for
the local team. However, a fact to be remembered is that jefferf
son was leading 10 to 4 at the end of the first quarter!
The Edgerton five led Fort during this whole game, playing
an airftight defense the second half, the Cardinals gained possession
of the ball and were able to overcome a large lead piled by the op'
ponents during the first half. Final score was 23 to 20. Tilton took ' fa
scoring honors for his team by ringing up seven points.
This game turned out to be a different story from the one
played at Monroe a month previous. Fort led in scoring in every
quarter but the third. Twentyfhve fouls were called in this game,
twelve being for the home team. The score was 21 to 13 in Fort's
favor with Pitzner as high scorer again with eight points.
Erratic ball handling and failure to control rebounds caused
the Cardinal five to bow in defeat to a powerful Stoughton five by
the score of 34 to 30. Kammer paced the Fort attack with nine
points closely followed by Tilton with seven and Pitzner with six.
The largest crowd of the season, over 700 people, saw Fort
High gain undisputed conference championship for the first time
in the history of the school. It was a ball game many fans will
never forget. The lead changed hands many times, with Fort tak'
ing the lead in the last thirty seconds of play to finally eke out a
22 to 20 win. It was the combination of Kammer and Tilton as
forwards, Pitzner at center, and Neilly and Luebke as guards that
clicked to put the Cardinals back in the lead after they were trail'
ing 18 to 14 with four minutes left to play. Pitzner scored half the
local points and Kammer was second with three baskets.
WATERTOWN DISTRICT TOURNAMENT-
MARCH 9, 10, 11
Playing a defensive brand of ball rather than offensive, the
Cardinals defeated West Milwaukee by the score of 21f13 in their
first game. They led their opponents throughout the game, Tilton
was high scorer with seven points.
Coming through in the last half with fourteen points, a pow'
erful Cardinal machine defeated Watertown for the third time
and won the championship of the Watertown Class B tournament.
The score stood 1Of9 at the half but rangy Eugene Tilton took
things in his own hands and in the third quarter scored three sucf
cessive field goals and a free throw, thus giving Fort a commanding
lead of 17f11. Final score was 2448,
Eugene Tilton, Robert Luebke, and Willard Pitzner were named on an all star
tournament team by the jefferson County Union after their brilliant performances in
the Watertown tournament.
WATERTOWN REGIONAL-MARCH 17
By defeating a highly favored Delavan five 3927 the Fort team earned for themf
selves a chance to enter the state tournament. Kammer and Pitzner stood out offenf
sively scoring twentyffour points between them, while Luebke's fine dribbling and
Tilton's and Neilly's great defensive play were the highlights of Eort's victory. During
the last two minutes of the game the entire second team was given a chance to play.
MADISON-CLASS B TOURNAMENT-
MARCH 29-APRIL 1
After leading all through the game the
Cardinals bowed to Tomah in their Hrst con-
test of the state meet. Sensational shooting by
Tomah the last quarter and a onefhanded push'
shot by a substitute forward in the last 44 secf
onds brought victory. Fort led 17f14 at the
half and 2Of16 at the end of the third quarter.
Pitzner led the Cardinals in scoring with
twelve points, while "Henry," tall Tomah cenf
ter, collected eight points for the victors.
Playing in the consolation bracket against
Evansville the Fort Cardinals lost a thrilling
overtime battle by a score of 2423. Again
Fort was leading by a wide margin with only a
few minutes to play but they could not keep
the pace and had to suffer another defeat. In
the overtime period both teams scored a field
goal but Evansville also made good on a free
throw, while Fort missed three. Luebke and
Kammer collected eight and seven points

The "F" Club was organized November 1, 1937, to promote cleaner and better Athletics.
Every member must have earned an F in some sport. The following officers were elected: Eugene
Tilton, presidentg Willard Pitzner, vice presidentg Robert Luebke, treasurerg and Robert Feller,
The club meets every first and third Tuesday of each month. Wearing an "F" and being a
member signifies that the boy has taken an oath promising to keep in training. Each member
wears his "F" on Friday.
This group chooses the captains of the bootball and basketball teams. For the coming year
Wendell Friedel and Harry May are the respective captains elected. Also at the end of each
season the club votes for the player who they believe has been most valuable to the team. This
honor was bestowed upon Eugene Tilton for his work in football and upon Willard Pitzner for
his line basketball showing.
The "F" Club was resumed this year after being discontinued some years ago and has
twentyffive members with Coach Freudenberg as faculty advisor. Their initiations and suppers
provided an opportunity for lots of fung their high school party was enjoyed by all who attended.
During the past school year we have had the opportunity to gather in the gym on
the average of once each month for a school dance. These dances have been sponsored
by various organizations.
On September 17 the "Senior Swing" was held after the Rockton game. The gym
was prettily decorated in red and white, and a large crowd of students and alumni en'
joyed the first dance of the season.
The club sponsored our second dance, which was held on November 24. The
fall colors of orange and black were used for decorations.
Cn December 23, the Forum Club was host at an allfschool dance. The decoraf
tions consisted of silver stars on a blue background. A large tree occupied one corner
of the gym. A floor show consisting of a tap dance by Helene Hodgden and Valerie
Roessler, a vocal duet by Bob Zenk and Joe Urban, and a solo tap dance by Lillian
Blankenship, was the high spot of the evening. The largest attendance of the year was
present as many alumni were home for the Christmas vacation.
The members of the Girls' Athletic Association, under the direction of Miss Frey,
were the hostesses at our next dance held January 21. They decorated the gym in black
and white and used silhouettes on the basketball boards. A "skate dance" was the
novelty of the evening. The dance was well attended and the girls realized a fine profit.
After the Monroe game on February 18, the Sophomores sponsored an allfschool
dance. Decorations were carried out in a red, white, and blue color scheme. "We had
a good time," was an oft heard comment following the dance, and the Sophomores and
their advisor, Miss Leinfelder, are to be highly complimented.
At the beginning of the school year a Social Committee, consisting of representaf
tives from all three classes was organized. The people chosen were: Seniors-Shirley
Case, Betty McKoane, Robert Fellerg Juniors-Mary Bradley, Eunice Darge, Harold
Mittagg Sophomores-Janet Dexheimer, George Pfefferkorng advisor, Miss Larsen. The
duty and purpose of the committee was to arrange for social events during the ensuing
year. This committee of eight members very effectively laid out plans for decorations for
Homecoming and of the main room before the Christmas season.
Second Row: Clyde Morris, Robert Zenk, Mr. Holmberpf, Joseph Urban, Robert Bemus

With the debate season over, the next thing up for consideration was the Forensic contests,
This season an unusually large group showed interest in the various divisions.
Elimination contests were held in both Junior and Senior High Schools and the following
were chosen to represent Fort Atkinson in the League contest at Watertown: OratoryfClyde
Morris, extemporaneous speaking-Robert Bemus and Joseph Urban, extemporaneous reading-
Sally Ann Linke and Ircene Runiary, serious declamationfRuth Ross, and humorous declamatory
iEllen Jean Ward. The coaches, Mr. Holmberg, Miss Aslakson, Miss McKeand, and Miss
Leinfelder, then concentrated their efforts on those contestants.
On April 8, seven worried contestants sallied forth to Watertown to do or die for F. H. S.
-and they did! Results were:

The next contest was the SubfDistrict at Elkhorn on April 19, where Fort Atkinson was
represented by those who won first in the League Contest. There Clyde Morris again placed
Hrst in Oratory and he went on to the District contest at Whitewater on April 22. There he
placed 3rd-and so Fort Atkinson's Forensic season was closed,
Resolved, That the several states should
adopt a unicameval system of legislation.
Sounds interesting, doesn't it? We Debaters thought so, too. But with a squad
like the one F. H. S. had this year, not even a thing such as that could daunt us.
We attended the annual Debate Clinic at Madison on November 19th. In the eve'
ning the debate between Northwestern and Wisconsin Universities proved most enjoy'
able for the girls, when they heard the southern accent of the last affirmative speaker.
Following this we competed with Illinois High Schools at Beloit college, no decif
sions were given, but we received valuable criticisms.
Our first round of league debates at Whitewater State Teachers' College took
place January 22. Here we tied for first place with Elkhorn-winning three out of four
To establish the winning team we literally swam to Madison during one of the
February rains, for the eliminations were then held between Elkhorn, Baraboo, and
Fort Atkinson. After three rounds of "Scotland's Burning" the affirmative team was
out of condition and consequently we placed second, surrendering first honors to Baraf
boo. This ended our season.
No doubt it would be Htting and proper here, to add a good word for Mr. Holmf
berg. He's really a swell coach and he could not help it if Bemus persistently mislaid
material, if Ireene and Bob Zenk quarreled over "whose gonna have which book", if
Lillian forgot rebuttals, if Joe insisted on those three little words, if Parker blissfully
wrote notes during speeches, if Clyde "blew up", if Ross cheated ffairly? D with the
time cards, and if Ward at the last minute couldn't find the 'Lone necessary card".
If you have survived this, we suggest you turn the page, and forget to tell your
friends all about it.

-They put some chocolate over the soap,
Some bit, 'twasn't you I hope.
6-Mae West has wisdom in what she expressed,
At least that's what Dr. Vander Lugt stressed.
7-Forensic contests were held at Watertown,
Morris, Bemus, and Ross claimed their crown.
-Dr. Gage came and told us about the knowledge
We would get if we went to Beloit College.
-The basketball "F's" were given today,
And all the girls began their play.
The most valuable basketball player was "Pita"
He's never heard of the word "quits".
The basketball boys will look up to Harry May
When next year he leads them in their play.
14-The rabbit was coming,
To bring the eggs here
So when vacation was called,
The students did cheer.
19-When the Juniors voted, it was to be seen
That 'LLindy" was the king and Ruth the queen.
23-The G. A. A. introduced the king and queen,
At the Cotton Ball where they reigned supreme.
In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to L'The Prom."
Whether his name be "Wee" or 'LDuckie" or "John"
30-To Whitewater they went, Fort honors to bring,
Our talented folks who play and sing.

"Who shall win" did I hear you say?
-The boys are out running, jumping, and throwing,
And our splendid track team is steadily growing.
8-The Operetta now is drawing near,
For the Glee Club is rehearsing, as we all can hear.
-All the classes are hoping and they know they'll have fun,
At the picnics this year, with a Wiener and bun.
-The announcement will be made and we'll all .give a shout,
For today is the day that the annual comes out.
30-We all will go out under the sea
Cf the bright blue sky, to rededicate the tree.
-The Baccalaureate service, of course, will be serious
And our duties in life will be made very clear to us.
For twelve long years we have waited to rate
A diploma on the night we graduate.
10-The boys and girls will come just to see
The alumni celebration and how they used to be.
' "The Late Christopher Bean" is the story of a New England doctor and his family.
Dr. Haggett, played by Warren Parker, is constantly nagged by his wife fBetty
McKoanej and his ambitious daughter Ada fGraee Feldschneiderj. Ada fancies her
baby prettiness and babylike manners throughout the play. Dr. Haggett has another
daughter Susie CEllen Jean Wardj who is in love with Warren Creamer, the village
painter, played by Robert Zenk. The plot centered around the Haggett's maid, Abby,
played by Emogene Haferman, who of all people in town, alone sensed the aspiration
of Chris Bean and staunchly defended the great artist. The play is brought to a climax
when Abby turns out to be Chris Bean's wife and her Chris Bean canvases, which
are worth a fortune and which the Haggetts have taken and been on the verge of sellf
ing, are returned to her. Joe Urban proved an able Rosenberg-dialect and all, while
Wilbur Klernent did just as well as the villain. Dean Helwig was the art critic.
Charles Covey and William Neilly were our valuable stage managers and Dorothy
West and Barbara Hagemann our efficient prompters.
Of course, the most credit goes to Miss Graper and Miss Converse for their patient
Un Saturday, April 23, the members of the Girls' Athletic Association were again
the hostesses, this time at the Cotton Ball for the purpose of crowning the Prom king
and queen. Cotton balls hung from the balcony formed attractive decorations, in keepf
ing with which, all the girls were required to wear cotton dresses and the boys to come
in shirt sleeves. At 9:30 Wendell Friedel and Ruth Covey were crowned as king and
queen in a very pretty ceremony.
The Junior Prom of 1938 will go down in the annals of Fort Atkinson as one of
the most successful proms ever presented. The Juniors and their sponsor, Miss Larsen,
feel that their work was not in vain when it was discovered that the treasury of the
class was greatly increased.
The deep sea motif was the theme for decorations with colorful murals of fish and
mermaids on a background of green sea weed. A false ceiling was created by using
green paper and fish nets strung here and there, to add to the illusion. As souvenirs
each couple was given a dance program with pencils attached.
On the stage Eddie Thiessen and his ten piece band held sway and gave us some
of the finest dance music in the modern manner.
An interesting and unique feature was the broadcast of the prom, starting at 9:30.
At ten o'clock the prom king and queen, Wendell Friedel and Ruth Covey, marched
down the center of the floor with their court of honor which included Robert Heide,
Mary Bradley, Robert Feller, Doris Knoerr, George Pfeiferkorn, Archie Leigh Alley,
William Hedberg, and Jean Crerar. The orchestra then changed the tempo from the
Fort Loyalty song to a dance number and dancing followed until one o'clock.
The patrons and patronesses were Mr. and Mrs. Kerschensteiner, Mr. and Mrs,
Rohde, and Mr. and Mrs. Black.
For the past nineteen years the orchestra has been directed by Miss Leila Snell.
Those who pass by the residence of Miss Snell on Monday evenings may see and hear
the twentyfone members holding their weekly practice. 'This home has become one of
the most popular, wellfknown, and mernoryfholding spots in our city.
The orchestra contributes its part to many programs and entertainments during
the school year such as class play, operettas, and commencement.

Stuart Anhalt is the director of our high school band which consists of flftyfseven members.
One concert was given this year at the community building. We are proud of the record our
band made at the Whitewater Music Festival. They placed in division one in both sight reading
and concert, and in division two in marching.

B B SOUSAPHONE:
The department of vocal music in our High School continues to show steady de'
velopment both in excellence of work and in the increasing number of those
There are now several divisions working regularly each week, in spite of the fact
that they must meet outside regular school hours. The Junior Girls' Glee Club of forty
voices, last year presented the Cantata, "Hiawatha's Childhood." This year, aided by
the Junior Boys' Glee Club, a newly organized group of ten voices, they will present
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" the third week in May. V
The Senior Girls' Glee Club of fifty voices is aided by the Boys' Glee Club, a
group of sixteen voices, to form the Choral Club. From this group of young singers
is drawn material for various programs throughout the year, such as P. T. A. meetings,
Safety meetings, Christmas programs, Memorial Day programs, and Forum Club pre-
sentations. The Choral Club also furnished three numbers for the 23rd Convention of
the Second District of Women's Clubs. The larger groups are organized, and the
Senior Girls' Glee Club last year acquired simple white robes which lend dignity and
uniformity to the organization.
This year our musical section was entered in the Music Festival held at White'
water. The mixed chorus sang two numbers, the Boys' Glee Club sang one number, a
group of nine girls sang one number, and Doris Knoerr, Robert Zenk, Henry Prust,
and Dorothy Schloesser sang solos. Dorothy Schloesser received a iirst in the Class C
soprano section. Two seconds and a third were received by the other soloists.
In the last three years these combined groups have presented two operettas, "The
Prince of Peddlersn, and "The Gypsy Rover", and the one to be presented this year is
"Hollywood Bound." The cast of characters is led by Robert Zenk as Bob Kent, Dorf
othy Schloesser as Marcia Norton, and joe Urban as Windy Bryan. The following
have speaking and singing parts: Donal Tews, Lillian Trottier, Suzanne Weidemann,
Warren Parker, James Tuttle, Charles Udey, Sally Ann Linke, Elmer Oberleitner,
Henry Prust, Clyde Morris, Barbara Hagemann, Harold Witte, George Pfefferkorn,
John Romoser, Mark Kerschensteiner, and George Linberts. The production is under
the direction of Mrs. J. A. Hagemann, Miss Aida Larsen, and Miss Virginia Johnson.
With the exception of Memorial and Commencement programs this will conclude the
activities of the groups for the year.
About a dozen students reported for tryouts in tennis this spring. After the elimf
ination games Robert Heide, Willard Pitzner, John Kammer and Mark Kerschensteiner
were selected to represent Fort Atkinson. Only one match against Stoughton has been
played and we then won the match over Stoughton by 4 to O. Mr. Bienfang, the coach,
hopes to repeat last year's record.
In the spring of 1957 both Whitewater City High and Stoughton teams were def
feated twice and Beloit once. Janesville, the winner of the Big Eight Conference, also
lost its match with us.
Track has been started after a lapse of six or seven years, A great deal of interest
has been created in the sport and thirty boys have been trying out for the twelve events.
The month of May will be devoted to many meets in which the boys can earn their
About forty boys have reported regularly for a period of four weeks for spring
football practice. Considerable time has been spent on the fundamentals of the game.
The boys out for practice have been divided into an Army and Navy squad and on
May 4 the two teams will play an exhibition game to end spring training.
