The 1946 Tchogeerrah
P ll ll I l Il e ll ll t
F. H. S., Fort Atkinson, Wie.
June 1, 1946 0 Volume XXIX
ln this year following the greatest war in
man's history, the current of life is boiling
over rapids of unrest and fear. May this
book provide a pool of quiet filled with
happy memories of carefree school days.
With this hope we present Tchogeerrah in
the year of our Lord, one thousand nine
hundred and forty-six.
The senior class of 1946 dedicates this
Tchogeerrah to Mr. Gordon. In the past three
years, as our Superintendent he has taught
us the true value of good citizenship, and
has helped to prepare us for the tasks which
lie ahead of us.

One of the best friends any
student of the school could possi-
bly have is Georgia McGowan,

something is wanted or lost,

With our schools for 25 years, Mr. Beach is now the Princi-
pal of both the Senior High and Junior High Schools. Because
of his wide interest in everything concerning school, he is the
friend of both teachers and students. He gets his greatest
enioyment out of watching all phases of development of the
student, particularly the mental growth, and observing how
well they take care of their responsibilities. It gives him a
great deal of satisfaction to see the youth of today looking
torward to their future.
Smiling and cheerful, Mr. Gordon has been the friend of
many of the Fort Atkinson High School Students during his stay
here the last three years as the Superintendent of Schools.
Mr. Gordon attended the University of Wisconsin, and also
the University of Chicago, coming here in 1943.
Always ready with a helpful solution to any problem that
is presented to him, he seems to understand his students, and
is as willing to help them along when they come to trouble, as
he is to set them on the right track when they do go wrong.
These things, coupled with his fine democratic spirit, have won
for him many friends out of school os well as in.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
The senior class of this year has progressed
through as varied a history as can be found. As
freshmen they had Mr. Jack Burke as adviser and saw
to it that their life was as full of fun as they could
provide for. They took an active part in all the
general school activities and provided floats for the
Homecoming and Fall Festival parades. The sopho-
more year comprised a very, very busy one getting
settled in a new building, getting acquainted with the
MRS- PARKER teachers, and above all new codes of behavior. Miss
Meyer was the class adviser that year.
As Juniors they handled the prom with the same alacrity and ease they had
shown before. With a successful Junior Luncheon and a unique prom behind them,
they set forth on their senior year.
The class of 1946 consisted of 102 pupils when school began in September.
After losing five of our "men" to the navy and two to the army, we feel a little at a
loss, but were fortunate in getting a veteran to replace at least one of those we lost.
On September 28, the seniors held a dance at the high school following the
Fort vs. Reedsburg game. Decorations included red and white streamers and large
red and white footballs signed by the Cardinal team members. There was also a
pep meeting given by a group of senior boys who presented music accredited to
Coach Perkins. The assembly was thrilled by the music presented by this talented
collection of concert musicians.
The float entered in the. annual Homecoming
parade by the class of '46 received top honors. That
negro washer woman lWally Hubbardl really meant
to "Clean up on the opposing team".
Being lucky is really a trait with this graduating
class. We had for our adviser, Mrs. Warren Parker.
With her advice and Mr. Williams helpful assistance
how could a class fail to gain recognition! Seems like
the two of them were always doing something in an
attempt to increase our bank account. Then of course,

The iuniors have survived almost three years of high school. At the beginning of the year we
were told by Mr. Beach and Miss Jones, who is our class adviser, to elect our officers for the year.
Jim Baird, who is talented in more ways than that of business ability, alone was elected president.
He's done a swell job, and our hats off to him! Then that tall, handsome boy, Jim Fuller, was elected
to fill the post of vice-president. And we must not forget our money man, Ronald Gess, or that cute,
little girl, Shirley Behl, who is our secretary.
The iuniors' "coming out" party was held after the Jefferson football game. Another highlight
of our dancing career was held after that rousing basketball game with Wisconsin High. Though
defeat marked the faces of everyone, it was soon a minor detail at the dance.
A prizeless, not priceless,
I float that represented the
2 lunior class was the wagon

One of the two main
highlights of any iunior class
is the Junior Luncheon. This
year, the class was very
lucky in having excellent
cooks for mothers, because
that food that was brought
was, -l well, all we
can say is "Yummy",

I guess every iunior who will graduate in i947 will never forget the happy times we've had
during our junior year. lt certainly was a prosperous year for us, and we'll never forget it.
Beneath a striking ceiling of blue crepe paper, and amid a setting of quaint little fairies and
elves, King Denny Ankomeus, with his attractive little queen, Marge Haferman, led the annual
promenade. The eight beautiful murals excellently depicted the fairyland theme. Under the capable
direction of their adviser, Miss Jones, along with that of their officers, the Junior Class certainly made
a success of the most important social event of the year.
A big surprise in the life of every Junior Class, toward the end of the year is the announcement
of the two top history students. This year's history students were a well kept secret until that
memorable day when no
one was more surprised
than Mary Wahl and Jane
Aspinwall. Mary, who won
top honors, is an "A" stu-
dent, the editor of The Bul-
letin Board and also takes
an active part in A Cappella
Choir, and Glee Club as ac-
companist. Jane, another
"A" student, is active in A A
Cappella Choir, Glee Club, 1
Forensics, band and G.A.A.
Sincere congratulations to
these two deserving stu-

Contrary to the usual opinion that Sophomores are underclassmen, and should stay that way, this year's
bunch didn't let anything stand in their way. They started the year by electing Bill Holmes as president, Carol
Liddle, vice-president, Bob Wilde, treasurer, and Velgen DuMond as secretary. To help them through the
remaining High School years, they chose Miss May as their adviser.
Their first project was to construct a float for the Homecoming parade. After discarding various ideas,
and running madly around working on the float, their efforts were rewarded. They received second prize that
featured a well cooked Edgerton Goose, being turned, seasoned, and watched by the Fort Chef, Jack Stanton.
Tragedy struck as the New Year turned. The death of Bob Becker is one thing that none of his friends
will ever forget. lt is a loss that is deep in the minds and hearts of each and every one of us, his class mates.
But though he is gone, we will always remember his happy smile, and his gay, carefree whistle.

In honor of George Washington's birthday, the Sophomores decorated their dance appropriately with
large red cherries on the gymnasium walls, and smaller ones for tickets, and called the affair, "The Cherry
As a class they have contributed their efforts to the various organizations of the school. They shine in
Forensics. Velgen DuMond and Jim Mahon were members of the Debate Team, while Carol Liddle, and Mary
Klitzkie represented the Fort Atkinson Sophomores in the League Forensic contest at Watertown.
There are several excellent athletes in the class, as well as some fine cheerleaders, who promise to keep
the air ringing for the games and pep meetings.
The class of '48 is an up and coming class, who promise to make something of their future.

The destiny of the Freshman class was guided by Miss Tommerson, as adviser. Her success is apparent
in the many and varied activities of the 103 Freshmen. Officers of the class are Albert Krause, president, Keith
Draves, vice-president, Paula Cornish, secretary, and Kay Koester, treasurer.
One of the first proiects the class undertook was to construct a float forthe Homecoming Parade. We
selected "Ye Old Slaughter House" for our float with two butchers busily chopping up our opposing team.
This proved to be very effective and we won 3rd place amid stiff competition.
In January our class was saddened by the loss of a popular member, Lewis Scheiwe.
A large number ofthe "forty niners" are athletes promising good teams for the coming years.
This year our pep meetings were led by our own cheerleaders. Those participating were Cormae
Hathaway, Janice Stannard, Kathleen Callum, Ramona Fullmer, Kathleen McCune, Paula Cornish, and

Keith Draves, drums, Albert Hartel, piano, Marilyn Anderson and Dean Geldard, Cornetsg Ramona Fullmer,
trombone, and Duwayne Gilkey, clarinet. Miriam Richter is well known as the vocalist. Along with the
musicians, this is a good place to mention that james Zimmerman is a member of the Senior High School A
Several students competed in Forensics. Paula Cornish won second place for a serious declamation and
Florence Haberl placed third in the Extemporaneous reading contest.
The outstanding party of the year was a costume party on December 'l?th. Games were played by
everyone. Keith Draves acted as master of Ceremonies and did his specialty number, a Hula-Hula dance.
Music was furnished by the Freshman Orchestra. Bill Eckhart and Betty Rumary won the costume prizes.
Roy Vershure handles the journalism in our class. He writes the Freshman Dispatch for the Cardinal
Well, that about covers us, we hope to make ourselves a bigger, and better class in the years to come.

After graduating from
Platteville State Teachers
College, where he was a
star athlete, Forrest Perkins
entered the marines. After
being over on Guadalcanal,
he returned later to take up
the position of assistant
coach at Lancaster. Last
September, he took over the
position of head coach at
Fort High. His exacting and
persistant drills and exer-
cises produced winning

teams. Coach Perkins, by
dint of his amiable charac-
ter, has popularized himself
among both the students
and players of Fort High.
Starting with football and
continuing on with basket-
ball, baseball and track,
Coach has instilled into our
boys true sportsmanship.
His willingness to help his
boys gives them the will to
go out there and win for
their Alma mater. The per-
sistent aggressiveness of
Perkins, and his squad's will
to work, made them title
contenders before the sea-
son closed. Here's a big
hand for Fort High's physi-
cal education instructor,
As a cooperative, faithful
member of the Fort High
faculty for many years, Art
Sundt is also to be lauded
for his unceasing and excel-
lent assistance in the direc-
tion of our athletic teams.
Little do we realize, per-
haps, the invaluable help
Coach Sundt has given our
boys and students. To see
one of his carefully-coached
backs crossing the goal line
ought to make us conscious
of the splendid work of this
arduous helper of the High

ence. Pre season ratings named the Cards as second
division ball club, but the fighting spirit of Perkins and
his squad made them title contenders before the
In the inaugural ofthe 1945 grid-iron season, a rugged, raging, football team welcomed their
new coach, Forrest Perkins, and prefaced a brilliant season with a glorious 20 to 7 victory over their
traditional rival Jeffers.
On the twelfth play following the kick-off, Jim Hensey passed to fullback Jerry Kutz in the end
zone, for the initial touchdown of the season. Jim Justus kicked the extra point from placement. ln
the second quarter the Eagles knotted the count, before the Cards opened wide their bag of tricks to
baffle their guests, moving the ball into scoring position on a series of razzle-dazzle plays. From the
9-yd. line, Hensey again flipped to Kutz for a touchdown. The extra point try was wide, but had no
bearing on the outcome as the Cards scored again on Hensey's off-tackle smash in the final quarter.
Justus converted the. extra point making the final score Fort 20, Jeff. 7.
Scoring two touchdowns in the first half the out-weighed Cardinals defeated Reedsburg's
battling Beavers 13 to 7. Playing in a field of mud, the Cardinal squad was handicapped by illness
of both regulars and reserves. The first Cardinal touchdown came as Jim Yackels took Henseys short
lateral and raced 46 yds. to the pay off strip on the 5th play of the ball game. Their final touchdown
came in the 2nd period when Mel May taking a lateral pass on the 3 yd. stripe, raced wide and
crossed the goal line untouched. Hensey passed to Justus for the extra point concluding the Card
scoring. ln the second half the Cards staged a last ditch defensive battle and after the Reedsburg
team had scored once, the heavier invaders were held in check.
Monroe's mighty Cheesemakers ground out a 19 to 6 victory over a battling Cardinal machine
that in the final period scored on the Monroe giants and were again threatening at the final gun.
The game, a grueling, bitter fight, added prestige to the Cardinal team that asked no quarter.
Jerry Kutz was lost to the squad three hours before game time to further handicap the team which
was pounds lighter at each position. Fort's touchdown came on the lst play of the 4th quarter
when Jim Yackels' passing from Monroe's 42 stripe, pitched a perfect strike to Hensey beyond the
Monroe secondary, who raced all the way to score the Card's lone touchdown.
A Cardinal comet flashed twice across Breeze Stevens Field in the closing minutes of a foot-
ball battle to give Forrest Perkin's gridders a thrilling I3 to 12 victory over Coach Clyde Knapp's
Badger Preps. For the first 44 minutes of the game, it appeared that Wisconsin High was a cer-
tain winner. At that point, the temper of Jim Yackels, Cardinal fullback, flamed and the entire
Cardinal team caught fire. Changing from an average football team into a destructive force that
punched holes into the Prep's forward wall, the team catapulted Jim Hensey into the secondary,
and he raced 35 yds. to score untouched. Hensey passed to Justus for the all-important after-
point, and the Cards trailed I2 to 7. Wisconsin High was forced to punt after receiving the
kick-off, and Jimmy Justus taking the ball on the Fort 45 started to his right, handed the ball on
a criss-cross to Hensey who raced 55 yds. to a touchdown and victory.
ln the final home game of the year, the team cracked a six-year homecoming iinx by de-
feating Edgerton 25 to 6. The contest was decided in the lst minute and a half when Mel May
broke over his own right tackle, and out-raced the entire Edgerton team for a 59-yd. touchdown
run on the 3rd play of the game. Justus placekicked the extra point. Hensey, on the receiving
end of a pass into the end zone, racked up the second Fort touchdown in the closing minutes
of the lst half. ln the 3rd period, May raced 28 yds. to his second and the Card's third touch-
down. Jerry Kutz, fullback, plunged for the fourth and final touchdown. The lone Edgerton tally
came in the lst period.
In their only Northern appearance, the gridders saw their title hopes blasted by the resorters
of Wisconsin Dells 20 to 6. The Cards took the opening kickoff and marched 54 yds to score on
the 9th play of the game. Jim Hensey scored on a quarterback sneak from the l-yd. line. In the
same period Fort's second scoring thread was snapped when a fleet-footed Dell's back intercepted
a Fort pass and raced 95 yds. to score, and greased the skids for the title hopes of the Cards.
The resorters completed their scoring with touchdowns in the second and third quarters.
In a brilliant finale to a successful season, the giant-killing Cards blasted Stoughton from a
share of the southern 10 conference title when they gave the favored Vikings a 19 to O lacing,
effectively spoiling the Soughton homecoming. The Card's -lst touchdown came in the second quar-
ter when Hensey scored on a quarterback sneak. ln the 3rd period, John Venning blocked a
Stoughton punt that the Cards recovered on the Viking 15. On the 3rd play, Yackels rammed
through for the final 3 yds. and the Card's 2nd touchdown. The afterpoint was made on a quar-
terback sneak. Fort's final touchdown came on Mel May's run from the 8-yd. line. The Southern
Ten Conference in the 1945 season produced a number of outstanding fullbacks, but Jim Yackels
in the final game of the year turned in a performance as brilliant as any seen on conference g
rid-iron. Even in a game in which the playing of a team as a unit was exceptional, Jim's play on
both offense and defense was outstanding and noteworthy.

JIM HENSEY, quarterback, was the
teom's spark plug in combined know-
how with daring in piloting the team
to a successful season. An exceptional
runner himself, in the signal calIer's
position, Jim made fullest use of all of
the team's material in his play selec-
tion. ln addition to his ball-toting
ability, he was a nifty pass hurler who
found his mark with enough consisten-
cy to keep off-balance every defense
in the conference.
JERRY KUTZ, during the season,
performed both as o fullback and at
on end and in spite of being kept out
for a portion of the season by illness,
turned in outstanding performances in
both positions. Light in weight, he
cracked the line with power on of-
fense and backed up the line on de-
fense in grand style.
MEL MAY, will-o'-the-wisp right
halfback, raced and danced his way
for long gains and touchdowns in a
manner that left potential tacklers
strewn on every gridiron in the confer-
ence. Giving away pounds to every
line and secondary that he raced
through, his elusiveness as well as his
speed made him a touchdown threat
every time he took the pigskin and
started on his end sweeps or cut
sharply through tackle. On defense
he gave no recognition to size and
was one of the most vicious tacklers
on the squad.
JIMMY JUSTUS, the Cardinal's fast'
est straight-away runner, also carried
the squad's conversion load. It was
his educated toe and pass-snatching
ability that set up the afterpoint for
the Cardinals. A terrific blocker, Jim
had the speed to stay in front of the
ball carrier and clear the path.
Although KENNETH KRAUSE was
probably the smallest man on the
squad, Kenney made up for it in fight.
His reckless play won for him many
friends as well as bruises. His inter-
esting style of play will be missed
CAPTAIN RALPH JUNG, from his
guard position, was the terror of op-
posing linemen. On offense he
opened gaping holes or pulled out to
lead the interference and on defense,
opposing teams soon learned that al
though small in stature, he was mighty
in strength, endurance and courage.
FRITZ LUEDTKE, who started the
season at tackle but early moved to
his favorite position at guard, liked it
best when the going was the roughest.
Opposing ball carriers who tried their
luck against formidable Fritz, soon
learned the error of their ways and
directed their attention elsewhere. No
matter what the odds, he stayed in
there to fight it out until the final
JOHN VENNING was shifted to
tackle early in the season after having
played the first two games as an end.
In the tackle spot he was where he
wanted to be as he knew it best and
it suited his talents and it gave him
the opportunity to get action in a spot
where the going was consistently the
most rugged. Quiet and mild-man-
nered, his play was clean and hard as
he asked and gave no quarter. An
alert, heady lineman, he ranked num-
ber one on the squad in the recovery
of oppanent's fumbles.
WALLY HUBBARD. Probably no one
on the squad enjoyed football as
much as Wally Hubbard. He was al-
ways in there on every play, playing
it hard all the way. Though handi-
capped by broken ribs during the
season, Wally refused to quit. His
fighting spirit won admiration from
both coaches and players. I
CLAUDE HAFFERMAN was a capa-
ble end, performing in every game
this year. He was one of the best
tacklers on the squad as well as a fine
pass receiver. These things along with
his punting ability made him a valua-
ble asset to the team.
BOB GUNTZBURGER was one of the
most likeable players on the squad.
He was a steady workman, almost
never missing with his passes from
center. As regular center, he played
almost every minute.
BILL GANSER was a dependable
center whenever called upon. Though
very qiuiet, he was a hard worker,
well-liked by all. His fine height was
a great asset on pass defense.
BOB WEBER proved his value in the
Edgerton game. His touchdown pass
started the Cards rolling to a home-
coming victory. Another feature of his
fine play, was his fearless line back-
LAVERNE KLIETZ. Opponents soon
found out that they couldn't roll over
LaVerne Klietz. His height and weight
stood him in good stead when the
going got rough up front and he
proved to be a hard man to stop.

FORT "BEE" TEAM
The Bee team of the football squad, under the capable coaching of Coach Forrest Perkins, enioyed a
fairly successful season. At the first practice in September about twenty boys reported. At guard posi-
tion were Norman Hathaway and Ronald Cloute. At tackle were Bill Holms, Bob Wilde and Tom Knoll.
At end position were Durwood Maas, Gene Raddatz and Bob Becker. The center was Raymond Roe.
The backfield included either Dick Simmons or Richard Statz, at quarterback, Stanley Dempsky and Denny
Ankomeus and Loren Rheinick at halfback, and Donn Fry or John Lonsdale at fullback. The manager
of the team was Rodell "Pete" Olson.
The team played games with Jefferson and Watertown this year. Many of the players on this year's
team will be regular members of the varsity squad next year. Let's wish them lots of luck.
Jim Yackels, iunior fullback, was elected captain of the 46-47 football team at the annual football
banquet put on by the American Legion. Jim has won letters at both end and fullback in his two years
on the varsity squad. This year he developed into one of the finest fullbacks in the conference. Always
a hard fighter, Jim likes it best when the going is rough. His peak performance was in the Stoughton
game when he repeatedly smashed through for long gains. Jim's fighting leadership should do much to
make next year's team a good one.
Jim is also active in basketball, track, and baseball and he was selected as an alternate to Badger
Boys' State. We are certain that Jim will do a swell iob, and wish him a lot of success.

The "F" Club started the year with a bang by initiating fifteen new members. The initiation
lasted two weeks during which the initiates enioyed themselves carrying out tasks for their masters.
The initiation was climaxed by a night of fun in the gym. During the course of the evening a light
lunch was served to the new members as a reward for their faithfulness. The leading marksman of
the evening proved to be C. F. Mueller, prominent sportswriter.
The "F" Club again co-sponsored the annual Homecoming Dance with the G.A.A. Much en-
thusiastic work was exhibited by members of both organizations, and the one-sided win over
Egderton made the dance a huge success. The "F" Club float highlighted the Homecoming parade
with its striking musical ability.
As their leaders for the l945-46 season they chose John Venning, president, Ralph Jung,
vice-president, and Jim Hensey, secretary-treasurer.
This organization, which consists of all lettermen, was founded topromote clean sportsman-
ship and fair play. The group is under the capable direction of Coach Forrest Perkins, Card mentor.

Four letter winners from the 1944-45 cage squad formed the foundation of the group of
almost 50 who answered the call of coach Forrest Perkins for the initial cage practice. Jim Justus,
Jim Hensey, Mey May, and Jim Rumary, senior members of the squad, were the only holdovers.
Added to this group were stellar performers on last year's B's, R. Engler, W. Wegener, J. Yackels,
J. Pfafflin, Skip Lueder, and E. Martin. Jerry Kutz, a senior, was making his first bid coming up
from the intramurals as was powerful Fritz Luedtke.
Seniors on the squad were playing under their 4th coach and Perkins in his 1st year had but
3 weeks to ready his squad in an entirely different system.
The Cardinal Cagers opened at home against conference opposition when they squared off
against Baraboo. The Circus City Quintet grabbed the opener by a score of 33-22. The Cards,
not impressive, staged a stubborn vain uphill fight against their towering opponents.
On Dec. 7 at Richland Center the cagers increased their percentage to 500 when they robbed
the Hornets of their sting by a 20-23 margin. Ronnie Engler paced his mates with 8 pts. in a game
in which the entire squad saw action.
Stoughton's Vikings, still smarting under the defeat suffered in the grid season finale, gave
the Cards a stormy night in their second consecutive game away from home. Using their size to
advantage the hosts pounded out a 36 to 30 victory. After having the short end of the scoring in
the 1st 3 quarters. the Cards made it a thrilling battle in the 4th quarter as they outscored their
hosts 12 to 0.
Going to Jefferson for their 1st non-conference tilt, our team, after trailing by one point at
half-time, bogged down in the final two periods, and the county seaters romped off with a 42'to
27 victory. .
On Dec. 21 the 1945 portion of the season closed with a thrilling overtime game in which
Edgerton gained the nod by a 32 to 30 score. The Tobacco City team, undefeated, took the floor
as top-heavy favorites, but a gallant, fighting Cardinal team matched them point for point in the
regulation time. The brilliant Cardinal defense allowed the vistors but one shot in the rugged over-
time period, but that one 'spelled defeat.
On Jan. 7, the team opened the 1946 por-
tion of the schedule by dropping the argu-
ment by a 27-22 score. Failure of the Card'
to hit the basket cost them the verdict.
The Badger Preps furnished the opposition
for the next league encounter and measured
our team 33 to 24 on the Fieldhouse floor.
The king-sized court proved too big an ob-
stacle to the Cards who were unable to find
themselves until the final period, in which
they outpointed their hosts 6 to 2 in a gallant,
but vain counter-attack.
A record crowd iammed the municipal au-
ditorium to see the sizzling Monroe Cheese-
makers race to a lop-sided 65 to 22 victory.
The driving speed of the visitors was too
much for the Cards.
The Watertown Goslings in a bruising
battle hammered out a 37 to 25 win at
Watertown in the 2nd non-conference game
on the schedule. Size, not basketball, de-
cided the issue. Ronnie Engler scored more
than half the team's points, counting 13.
A 14 to 3 spread in the 3rd period gave
Wis. Dells a 32 to 26 victory at Ft. Atkinson
in a league encounter. The team had out-
scored their guests 13 to 12 in the last half
before slumping, and their 10 to 6 rebound
in the 4th quarter was too short to turn
Jefferson in a return engagement here,
was unable to stem the rush and the high
flying Red Birds scored their second victory
of the season by defeating their guests 47
On our final northern invasion, Reedsburg
proved to be too formidable an opponent,
and the Cards returned from the 180-mile
trip on the short end of a 40 to 34 score.
Wegener sparkled for the Cards with 15
The Watertown Goslings in a return en-
gagement, staged a terrific 4th quarter rally
to force the game into an overtime, and
snatch apparent victory from the Cards by
a 38 to 34 score.
Continuing their drive to the conference championship,
Monroe again speeded to victory, this time ringing up 68
points to 32 for our team. Every member of the Fort team
shared in the team total.
Wisconsin High moved ahead in the 3rd period by
2 points in their game here and the courageous Cards fell
one point short when in a driving 4th quarter finish they
outscored the preps 9 to 8, but lost the decision 35 to 34.
Five seniors and sophomore Ronnie Engler made their
bid against Edgerton in their final conference game away
from home, and after 32 minutes of the season's most
thrilling basketball, left the floor defeated by a 34 to 32
score. lt was a brilliant battle but Cardinal prestige suffered
nothing in defeat.
The Cards were perfect hosts in the final home game of the season, and visiting Stoughton
again shot their way to 38 to 25 victory. The guests in racking up the win scored 'l5 times from
the floor while the I2 Cardinals were able to make only 8 of their short stick.
On Feb. 28 we met Edgerton in our first game at the Stoughton Regional tournament, and 2
previous defeats were forgotten as we won our way to the semi-finals with a 42 to 36 win. Jim
Rumary led the Cards to victory with 13 points followed by Engler with ll.
Janesville co-champions of the Big Eight proved to be too big a bite in the Cardinals final
game and the team bowed out the season with a 52 to 30 defeat.
Although the 1945-46 season proved unimpressive, it left us with a feeling of pleasant antici-
pation for things to come. The sophomores Ronnie Engler, Wally Wegener, Mort Cloute, and Jun-
iors Jim Yackels, Skip Lueder, and Jerry Pfafflin in combination with Freshman Jim Gordon,
Loren Rheineck, Jerry Mason, and Tom Knoll, are all rich in ability and have picked up enough
experience to make the forthcoming cage teams a threat to the entire conference.

BASKETBALL "B" TEAM
With a large sprinkling of Freshman among his "'B" squad, Coach Forrest Perkins opened
his Jay-V season. The squad spent most of the time on fundamentals and showed continued im-
provement throughout the season.
In the inaugural game, the Bees started the season with a 20 to I4 triumph over Baraboo.
An 8 point bulge was the decisive factor.
The Bees routed Stoughton 4I to 24 for their second straight win. Scoring in the second and
third periods accounted for 30 points and placed the game in the win column.
Edgerton's Bees showed too much speed and finesse for the Jay-V's as they copped a 39 to
27 win. Gordon's II points couldn't turn the tide.
Again encountering too much height and speed, the team dropped a one-sided encounter
with Wisconsin High 44 to I3. Wisconsin High was in complete command throughout.
Monroe, with a "B" team resembling its fine A squad, outsped and outshot the Bees for a 46
to I5 win. The Cheesemakers led by I3 points at the end of the first quarter and drew steadily
ln a great uphill battle that fell iust short of victory, the Jay-V's were edged by Watertown
I6 to I5. The game was lost at the free throw line as there were only 5 conversions in I7
Wisconsin Dells' rangy ball club handed the still off-form Bees a neat 22 to I6 defeat. The
Resorters were held on even terms throughout the second half, but the early lead stood up.
Jefferson still showed too much for the Frosh-Sophs and the underclassmen succumbed 28
The long seven game losing streak was finally ended with a smashing 27 to I3 triumph
over Watertown. Gordon and Knoll sparked the attack with nine points apiece as the team led
in every quarter.
Monroe's fine ball club again won' handily 33 to I2. As before, the Cheesemakers were too
fast and accurate.

The revising of the "A" squad caused all remaining "B" games to be cancelled. All members
of the "B" squad were then moved to the varsity. While the season was not a success from the
won and lost standpoint, it will undoubtedly provide much material for next year's varsity.

Eight lettermen formed the nucleus for the i946 track team. The team appeared weak in most of the
field events with strength concentrated in the running events. Veterans were led by Captain Jim Hensey
who ran the dashes and relay. Other lettermen back were Jim Justus and Mel May, dashes and relay,
John Venning 440 Yd. dash, Jim Fuller hurdles, broad iump, and 440 Yd. dash, Jim Yackels high iump
and shot put, and Lester Wurtzler and Wally Wegener in the mile. Other likely prospects included Dur-
wood Maas, half mile, and Donn Frey in the dashes and relay.
The first meet of the year was at the Madison West relays, April 20th, wit l3 schools competing in
the Class B Section. A
Other meets were as follows:
April 24th--Triangular meet at Stoughton with
Monroe also competing.
April 26th-Baraboo invitational meet.
May 3rd-Triangular meet at Whitewater with
Oconomowoc third team.
May lOth-Southern Ten Conference meet at
May l7th-Sectional meet at Janesville.
May 24th-State meet at Madison.
A green inexperienced tennis team was present for the 1946 season. All members of last year's cham-
pionship team graduated, leaving no returning veterans. The long winning streak built up during the past
years was broken last year by Madison West. But our fine team easily won the conference championship.
Due to his many coaching responsibilities, Coach Perkins was unable to devote much time to the tennis
squad. Brightest prospects appeared to be Wally Wegener, Jerry Pfafflin, Eldon Martin and Jim Rumary.
No matches had been definitely scheduled but the conference meet was scheduled for May-llth at
Madison. ' , E ' gi

A large squad of veterans reported to Coach Perkins, as the Cards prepared for their third year of
baseball. Nine lettermen reported from last year's championship squad. Lettermen, led by Captain Jerry
Kutz, were available for every position except on the mound. Veterans were catcher Kutz, infielders Dick
Bauer, Ronnie Engler, Mey May, Skip Lueder, and Jim Hensey, and outfielders Jimmy Justus, Ralph Jung
and John Venning. Jerry Schlegel and Jim Hensey appeared the likeliest pitching candidates and Ray
Menzel appeared likely to break into the outfield.
Two new teams, Edgerton and Milton Union made their first entrance into the league. Other old mem-
bers were Lake Mills, Jefferson, and Fort.
Whitewater City High and Columbus offered opposition on the two open dates of the conference
ln their first ball game on April 22, the Cards easily defeated Edgerton behind the fine hurling of
Jerry Schlegel 12 to l. Bauer led the hitters with three hits, one a triple.
Traveling to Lake Mills, the Cards suffered their first defeat as they were unable to hit the pitch-
ing of Eddie Rehm consistently. Bauer's home run accounted for the only Fort tally while Lake Mills
Jefferson's Eagles handed the Cards their second straight defeat 9 to 6 in a game played at Jeffer-
son April 29.
ln a non-league contest, the Cards routed Whitewater City High by a score of I8 to 2, A I3 hit at-
tack, featured by four home runs, gave the team an easy victory.
ln one of the best played games of the year, the Cards edged Milton Union 4 to 0. All the team's
runs were scored in one inning and Schlegel protected the lead nicely.
Edgerton was again easy prey for the Cards in the return engagement this time losing l7 to 4.

G. A. A.
During this year the G.A.A. has been more active than ever guiding the Fort Girls in sports.
These sports teach the girls more than just physical education, they have fun while learning team
play and god sportsmanship.
With fall, began the initiating of the unlucky new members, who took pranks played on them
with real good sportsmanship Girls in brightly clashing colors, mismated shoes, scads of iewelry,
and numerous ribbons were a familiar sight, laboring along under a pile of books, while their
fellow G.A.A.'ers looked on gleefully. The climax came at school in the gym and the initiates
became regular members at last. But not until they had walked in mud, kissed molasses and flour,
and eaten cold spaghetti.
The first sport in the fall was kittenball, with many hard and loud battles. Evelyn Winter's
team came out the final victors and earned the title of kittenball champs. With the cold weather,
basketball began, many of the girls favorite. Mary Klement's team was the conquerer in Basketball
and they really played hard.
The G.A.A.'s capable president was Ruth
Schumacher, who planned the banquet and
kept things running smoothly all year. Mary
Sievert was vice-president, and Margaret
Baird was secretary-treasurer.
And if a vote were taken for the most
popular member of the G.A.A. it would of
course be Mrs. Brown. No hike or party
would ever be a success unless she were
along to make us laugh and put everyone
at ease. Mrs. Brown is more than iust a
gym teacher in our school, she's everyone's
mom and has helped many more than a few,
boys as well as girls, over a rough spot when
the going was hard. She spends many hours
with us out of school, and always sticks up
for us when we need it and we love her for
it. The G.A.A. girls, and all the girls in
Fort High think she's tops!
The G.A.A. banquet was held in May,
for the members of the board and their
mothers. The home economics department
furnished the food, and it was as fine as
it always is, and everyone enioyed her
During the half at one ofthe league games
at the municipal building, the Junior girls
played the Senior girls The crowd seemed
to enioy the game, and the girls liked to
play. The Seniors managed to save face,
and won I0 to 7.
On Wednesday nights after school, during
part of the winter, the G.A.A. volleyball
games began, with great vigor, especially
on the part of Betty Finger's team, who were
With the coming of spring, Badminton,
tennis and kickball began and again the
girls were able to be outside and play in
the sun again.
ln the fall and spring, the G.A.A. went
on hikes, which were very popular with the
girls. On the fall hike, we walked for sev-
eral miles and then returned to Margaret
Baird's backyard to roast weiners-and marsh-
mallows and sing around the dying camp-
Three cheers for our
cheerleaders! Under the
supervising eye of "Ma"
Brown, girls' physical edu-
cation instructor, this year's
peppy group of cheerlead-
ers have done a great iob.
Present at every game,
whether on a wet, soggy
gridiron, or on the crowded
basketball court, this squad
has faithfully led us through
both victories and defeats.
With five enthusiastic young
leaders like these, our spirits
had no chance to bog down.
Not only is the "A" squad
deserving of such a hand,
but also the eager, up-and-
coming "B" squad.
The "snappy five" that
were to be seen most fre-
quently at each and every
game were Aggie, Jenny,
Jerry, Jo, and Margie. Agnes
Carmichael is the vivacious,
witty, little senior, who is
among the first to bounce off the bench at a touchdown or basket. Then our other senior is Jenny
Stannard, tiny blonde who was our Prom Queen last year. Jenny's voice can really give out when
needed. The only masculine character of this renowned group is Jerry Knoepfel, a member of
'47. With his cartwheels and somersaults, Jerry has been an important factor on the squad.
The other iunior is the lively miss who loves to tumble, Joan Taylor. The pretty, dark-haired indi-
vidual who represents the sophomores on the "A" squad is Margie Henry.
Genevieve Stannard, Margie Henry, Jerry Knoepfel, .loan Taylor, Agnes Carmichael.
Those girls who will
soon take over the num-
ber one positions of
cheerleaders are the
members of the "B"
squad: Mary Klitzkie,
Zella West, Trela Cole,
Mariorie Haferman, Har-
riet Schroeder, and Col-
leen Cook. We're proud
of all of them!

MR. ANHALT MISS LEA MISS STEIL
As far as one can see, from the musical standpoint of F.H.S., this has been a very successful year. The old
Shakespearean saying, "The man that hath no music in his soul is fit for stratagems and spoils" is applicable
to the students during the past year. With 60 enrolled in the band, 67 in the A Cappella choir, 40 in Glee Club,
12 in ensemble, and others in numerous other solo and ensemble events, it is clearly evident that music is on
the upward trend among the students today.
Much of the credit is to be given to our music leaders, Mr. Stuart Anhalt, Miss Margaret Lea, and Miss
Mr. Anhalt is the director of both the band and the orchestra. Many a morning before school called, the
band members could be seen marching around several city blocks. After many long years of instructing Mr.
Anhalt has found that "Practice makes perfect". Besides the fine work the band has done, the orchestra has
provided a great deal of entertainment at commencements, baccalaureates, class plays, and other activities.
Miss Lea also is to be congratulated on the wonderful work she has done with the A Cappella Choir, the
Glee Club, and the Ensemble. Every fourth period on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, with the transom
closed, the choir would begin their rehearsals. Although at times countless sour notes and heaven-rending
discords were evident, Miss Lea's hopes never diminished, nor did her patience ebb. Then there were those
12:30 noon dead-lines at which she had to meet with the ensemble girls. And never a dull moment.
To build up the Junior High music division this year, we have Miss Steil. This young teacher spent many an
hour after school hours working on her music. Thanks to her enthusiasm and ambition the Junior High
orchestra was originated. She also directs the Junior Girls' Glee Club.
We must not forget our faithful accompanists, Mary Wahl and Norma Langholff. Mary has willingly
given of her time to attend all A Cappella choir practices, and later on in the year she took over the task of
accompanying the Glee Club. Norma, for the maior portion of the year, was accompanist for our Glee Club.
Orchids to both the leaders and accompanists for their meritorious work in our music department.

This year our band numbered sixty in all. We have a right to be very proud to have such a band and
they certainly have never let our hopes down.
On the regular band morning, Wednesday, and Friday, in the fall or spring, the band may be seen
outside practicing its marching. ln the fall, it practices for the football games, and in the spring, it practices for
the Music Festival. On rainy days, the band practices it's concert pieces in order to secure a first at the contest.
ln the beginning of the year, the band elected officers as follows: Wally Weber, President, Bob Emerick,
Vice-President, Don Chapman, Treasurer, and Margaret Hyde, Secretary.
Around the Christmas vacation the band held a dance. At the beginning of the second semester, uniform
inspection was held and if Johnny had grown, he was either shrunk or supplied with a new uniform.
ln their snappy maroon and grey uniforms the band attended the Music Festival in Whitewater on May
18, and they made a very fine showing, both in their parade work and in their concert work.
The high school orchestra has been reiuvenated this year, and has surprised quite a few with its new life.
They have added several new members also. They have played at many banquets and gatherings during the
year. The F.F.A. organization and the Co-op have called on them frequently for music for their gatherings.
At Bacculaurate they played the "March of the Meistersingers" as the long column of grey gowned and
capped marched to their seats.
The night of the class play the strains of "l'll Walk Alone", and etcetera sounded in the Community
Building, much to the delight of the younger generation.

Keeping in tide with the Christmas spirit, the A Cappella Choir gave a Christmas Concert on Thursday,
December 20. Before a background of church-windows and two huge Christmas trees, the Choir in their white
surplices, sang, "Lord of Hosts", "Today There is Ringing", "Yule Song", "Good News From Heaven", "White
Stars Their Vigils Keep", "Jesu, Priceless Treasure", and "Sevenfold Amen".
The Choir went to Whitewater on May l8, where they competed in the District Contest.

The Girl's Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Lea, meets every Monday and Friday morning at 11:00
o'clock, at which time they practice their songs which are presented before the High School assembly and at
various public programs throughout the year.
The following numbers before the High School assembly at a Christmas program: "Christmas Bells",
"Carol of the Bells", and "Sheep and Lambs".
Many of the members of this year's Glee Club took part in the Whitewater Music Festival last year at
which time they won first place.
After the Christmas program, the Glee Club practiced diligently and instead of meeting only once a
week, they found themselves practicing twice a week. But they enioyed it immensely, and their director, Miss
Lea, saw them through, deserving high honors for her good work in directing and rehearsing with them so that
they might win first place in the Whitewater Music Festival. They sang B class music for their choice in
presenting themselves before the public at the concert.

activities. Early in the year they elected their officers as follows: Rosa Lena Bauman, president, Sue Toussaint,

sponsored several successful dances following football and basketball games. The social highlight of the year
was undoubtedly the Redskin formal to which each and every loyal Redskin who could beg, borrow, or steal a
This year's initiation antics, although probably not as severe as those of some preceding years, were some
of the funniest yet seen around old F.H.S. The girls were appropriately garbed in feather headresses and long
white shirts, but, alas, no warpaint!
The Redskins have certainly earned a reputation for good work this year. They have unstintingly helped
sell stamps, managed school drives, pass out iodine pills weekly and attend to a dozen other necessary evils of
everyday school life.

This year's Press Club was composed of 25 of the most enthusiastic newshounds ever to hit Fort Hi.
The iournalists elected Phyllis Vosburg and Mary Wahl as co-editors. The remainder of the editorial
staff consisted of Mary Klitzkie, News Editor, Jessie Walters, Activities Editor, and Norene Frentzel, Social
Editor. Miss Armstrong served as faculty adviser.
Mr. Leroy Gore, editor of the Jefferson County Union, conducted iournalism classes every Monday. These
classes culminated in an observation tour through the press and editorial rooms of the Jefferson County Union.
The product of the club's labors was the Cardinal Bulletin Board, published weekly in the Fort Bargains,
and closely followed by members of the community. The reporters learned a great deal about newswriting,
editing, and newspaper composition through the efforts of Mr. Gore and their own experiences.
Students soon became accustomed to seeing copy-laden reporters streaking down halls, or to being
efficiently approached by the lnquiring Reporter. There was never a dull moment in the lives of the editors,
who were constantly on the alert for news sources, and who were usually trailing their reporters the minute
before the deadline. There were desperate moments, too-when the stencil ripped, or when a writer was
asked to read his hasty composition before the class. The high point of the year came when the class was
asked to put out the Jefferson County Union for one day.
The Press Club met weekly as a iournalism class. Scholastic credits were given for membership in this
class. "Professor" Leroy Gore, of the Jefferson County Union, faithfully and successfully conducted these

F. F. A.
This year the F.F.A. proved their worth as potential farmers of America.
The biggest event of the year was the annual plowing contest, which was held at the Hetts' farm, iust
outside of the city limits. The plowing contest is the climax of the F.F.A. season even though it does come in
The contest which lasted two days consisted of a horse race, horse-pulling contest, corn husking, milking
contest, horse show, and a parade. The husking, milking, race and pulling contests, held on the farm,
constituted a very busy day. The noonday meal was prepared by the Home Economics girls under the
supervision of Mrs. Donkle.
During the Fall Festival days the down town windows were gaily
decorated by the students of the surrounding rural schools with the
results of their school proiects. The students of the Junior and Senior High
decorated the floats for the parade. These students were assigned in
pairs, and they worked with the merchants who sponsored the floats.
Not only are the boys good farmers, but they have also won
recognition as musicians of worth. The F.F.A. Quartet, this year, consists
of Leonard Donehower, first tenor, Phil Hagen, second tenor, Donald
Gottschalk, baritone, and Vernon Merrifield, bass. At Oconomowoc
these boys took first place and at Columbus they received a fourth place. 'X f
The boys are under the direction of David Downing.
Each and every member has worked hard this year and they deserve
a lot of success next year as well.

The play chosen this year was "Spring Green", a comedy in three acts, under the direction of Misses Laura
Graper and Louise Converse. The story centers around the Cassell family, the neighborhood children, and
their visitors. Nina Cassell, the mother, is a widow with two children, Scootie, a mischievous ten year old, and
Tony, a typical sixteen year old. Grandpa, Mrs. Cassell's father and Genevieve, a neighbor, add much humor
to the story.
The boys, Bing and Dunk, mean romance to Tony, Eula, and Pinkie. Major Todd, an old friend of Nina's
and his son T. Newton Todd come to make their home with the Cassell's while he is supervising the work on a
new army airfield nearby.
After a humorous tangle concerning Spring Green perfume, angleworms who thrive on arsenic, and
carnival costumes, everything ends with a smile.

The Home Economics department has done itself overly proud. They have
proved for once and for all that where there is a will there is a way.
The girls have canned a goodly share of the produce of their garden
which was planted last spring. The care of the food obtained from it occupied
a good deal of time in the early part of the fall. Among the produce canned
were tomatoes, carrots, dill pickles, and rhubarb marmalade. Parsley was
dried for future use. The faithful few who attended the garden during the
summer months got the results ofthe radish crop while the birds made off with
the corn leaving the girls to mournfully collect only two nubbins.
The younger girls of the Freshman class have turned out some fine
cooking. They have furnished the food for the two teachers parties and during
the Forensic contest here they fed about 150 contestants. They have also
prepared and eaten several "brunches", so called because they were
breakfasts eaten for lunches at noon and named by the ready wit of their
instructor Mrs. Donkle.
The seamstresses of the group gave a fashion show on April 12 called
"The Easter Parade" which demonstrated the results of their work in that line.
The show featured clothing for a teen-agers spring wardrobe. Special
attention was placed on suits and blouses for dress-up and for school and
everyday wear. Afternoon prints, date dresses and house dresses were
modelled by the girls and received hearty approval by all.
If the smells that have been transmitted to the noses of the school via the
ventilating system have been any indication of the cooking then we envy the
persons who eat the food. The fashion parade of sewing results and the mouth
watering cooking smells certainly are proof of a successful and worthwhile
During the year the school has been called on many times to contribute to national drives. ln whatever
they have been called on to do they have not failed to meet the quotas which have been set for them.
Perhaps the most important activity in this line is the selling of war bonds and stamps. This is a weekly
function and has occupied the first period of each Thursday. The stamp sales started on October 4th with Miss
Wagner at the head of the program and with a corps of competent salesmen under her.
Miss Wagner has been the head of this program for several years and continued in this capacity this year
also. "Distinguished service rendered in behalf of the school savings program." These were the words that
were included in a citation from the United States Treasury to the Fort Atkinson City Schools. The credit for this
honor should rightfully go to Miss Wagner because without the spark of her determination and her will for the
program to succeed it is doubtful if it should have succeeded to the extent that it has.
The total amount of the stamps bought in the 7th War Loan Drive amounted to S2'l5.3O. Students and
Teachers purchased S3l50.00 worth of bonds making the total 53365.30 for the entire year.
March of Dimes
The March of Dimes was carried on in the Fort High Schools during the week of January 28th. The
minimum was a dime per student.
Many contributed 5 dimes thereby getting their names on the March of Dimes Honor Roll.
The Senior High students contributed 552.90 while the Junior High students gave S32.40. This total
exceeded that of last year.
The students also made a good showing in the Russian Relief Clothing drive and in the European Food
Drive when they were asked to contribute canned goods to a store of food to be sent to the countries of
Europe. The Junior Red Cross Drive was also carried on through the schools as it has been in the past years.
