THE NEW SCHUUI.
We, the student body and faculty are very happy
to have this new addition to our school. For many
years it has been our wish to have more room for our
classes. Students and faculty alike, have been await-
ing the opening of this building all year and on
January thirty-first, the gym was opened for the first
There are three floors in our new school. Above
the second floor there is room for another floor if
necessary for future use. Arrangements have been
made for a band room to be built out on the front of
the building in years to come and room was left in
the basement for a swimming pool.

The greatest compensation any school administrator can have
is to see the boys and girls of his school system conduct themselves
in a manner that is worthy of the great investment made in public
school education. I have confidence in the youth of our schools and
l will do all in my power to see that they have the opportunities to
develop to the fullest extent of their abilities.
To our underclassmen I say, "Carry on to make our school the
best." To our seniors, "We hold our graduating seniors in high
esteem. Your splendid contributions are firmly woven into the
fabric of your alma mater. Your influences follow you, thus making
Nowhere outside of the United States could you have acquired
them Your generation is an improvement over ours. It is your
responsibility to see that the generation that follows you is likewise
you a continuing part of F. H. S."
and Best Wishes to you all."
The School board for this past year consisted of five members:
Mrs. Walker, Mr. Moore, Mr. Hein, Mr. Rogers, and Mr. Knox. The
students of Fort High appreciate the time and effort the school
board has spent for our benefit.
The experiences you have had here will live with you always.

The method of organization of the Student
Council was different this year. One repre-
sentative was chosen from each home room,
making a much larger group than ever before.
With Mr. Shreve as their advisor, the council
elected Roger Lalk to serve as president, Eileen
Stevens as vice president, and Sally Zaspel as
secretary and treasurer.
One of the first proiects on their list was to
plan a noon hour program. Mr. Wade served
as noon recreation director for the year. With
his help, teams were divided up for touch foot-
ball, archery and horseshoes. During the winter
months, checkers and chess were played in the
Another important task of the council was
planning the homecoming parade which proved
to be a great success.
Everyone had a ringing good time at the
Student Council's "Bell Hop." lEveryone was
required to wear a bell to gain admission.l
As the Tchogeerrah now goes to press we are
about to move into the new addition which
will present many more problems before the
The Youth Council started their year by
electing new and very capable officers. They
are Kathy Shook, president, Mary Ann Nowak,
vice president, Dan O'Brien, treasurer, and Lou
Ann Behrend, secretary. The council was under
the leadership of their capable and co-opera-
tive advisor, Mr. Herdendorf. Helping in the
November election was one of their activities
of the year. On January 3 they sponsored a
community formal which was a huge success.
The group put on a March of Dimes dance with
proceeds going to the March of Dimes Fund.
Representatives of the organization were sent to
the District Youth Conference at Monroe and
the State Conference at Madison. One of the
main purposes for sending these people was to
teach them how to better the community. The
Youth Council, hoping to see their dream of a
youth center come true, is continually helping

We will never forget Mr Hunsader who gave his time and
his interest so unselflshly to our class He has been our class
adviser for the three years that we have been in Senior High
and has made our problems his problems Now as we see our
graduation day approaching we give him the many thanks
that he has so long deserved and so seldom received His
assistance and wise guidance helped to ease the problems of
prom and also helped to make it and our many other activities
the successes they were Mr Hunsader has been our guiding
light for the last three years and he will always be a main part
of our memories of Senior High
SENIUR CLASS HISTORY
Just think graduation day is here at last
Doesn t seem like we ve been together for four
years does it? lll always remember all the
fun we ve had and some hard work that we ve
done too Now we are prepared to meet the
world with a much more serious outlook
This last year certainly has flown hasnt
it'9 With Whitey as president Glenn vice
president Gessl secretary and Dusty hand
ling the money we did all right We certainly
struggled under that new schedule I thought
we d never catch on to those x and z periods
Remember when Lou Ann was always going to
her fourth hour class on Tuesday lust because
we were following Wednesday s schedule For
about two weeks we wondered who was the
Homecoming queen That night Theresa was
crowned by co captains JO Heth and John
Fry Joanne Ehlers and Jane Scheppert were
her pretty senior attendants And we won the
game that night tool Wasnt the class play
and the whole cast would have everyone rolling
in the aisles with laughter lt sure was a lot
of hard work though I thought that Joanne
Ehlers surely deserved the DAR award didnt
Dont think I ll ever forget our Junior Prom
lll See You In My Dreams on May 9th Lou
Ann Behrend and Jvm Gessl were good chair
.. . . . funny? I thought Joanie Bienfang as Laurie
I I i ' .
men, helping all of us to do something towards
its big success. I can still picture 'King Peter'
and lovely Lou Ann leading the big grand
march. Who were the guys who were sent to
Badger Boys' State? Oh, yes, Hanson, 'Whitey',
Steinke, and 'JO', and Lou Ann went to Badger
Girls' State. They say it was really a worth-
while experience. Orion, as president, finally
got us to decorate a Homecoming float, didn't
he? Our theme was 'Operation Killer', and we
won second prize too! Got a free bus ride and
ticket to the Stoughton game. Let's see, Carol
Severson was vice-president that year, Jerry
Vail secretary, and Marilyn Gess, treasurer.
"We were kinda scared sophomores when
we came to big Senior High, weren't we? But
with Mr. Hunsader as our adviser, we came
through with flying colors. Doesn't seem now
as if too much happened, but we were busy.
First of all we elected Dave Wollet as president,
Frank Zeckel, vice-president, Barbara Boese,
secretary, and Shirley Johnson, treasurer. It
was our first year to have a voice in Student
Council and to join other various organizations.
Of course, we entered a float in the Homecom-
ing parade, and wasn't that the night when
Wollet scored a touchdown in the last few
moments of the game to make us the winners?
Boy, were we proud of him, lust like we were
of all our other athletes.
Remember when we were little freshmen
back in Emery Junior High? Ah, yes, those were
the good old days! Now let's see- 'twas
so long ago l can hardly remember, but I think
I can recollect Lloyd Knoepfel leading our class
meetings, Glenn Weist as vice president, and
Roger lalk running after class dues. Mr. Mer-
riman was our adviser. Oh, yes, can't forget
that class party when Sylvia got 'JO' to dance!
'We'll Sail to Victory on the Crimson Tide' is a
slogan that'll always remain close to our hearts,
isn't it? We got first prize for using it on our
Homecoming float. Just think, this happened
only four years ago. Does it seem like it?"

here rn thus classroom us no longer a dream Dld
you hear me? No longer a dream I Professor
Hunsader know ut s true
The excitement In hrs Ilned face IS now very
evrdent Even hrs grey haur and beard are be
grnnlng to curl He IS nervously fumbling wlth
has bufocals In one hand and sample atoms un
Ott what In duce are you thmkrng about?

The senior band sponsored a dance in De-
cember called "On the Ball", named after the
well known march, "On the Mall". With the

The Fort Atkinson Chapter of the Future
Homemakers of America began their work of
the year by electing Shirley Behm, president,
Joan Weckler, vice-president, Norma Telfer,
treasurer, Mariorie Erdman, secretary, and
Evelyn Lehr, Student Council representative.
Miss Devine very capably advised the group
in their many activities. Their main event of
the year was sponsoring the Homecoming Dance
with F. F. A. Cookies and punch, made by the
homemakers themselves, were served.
National F. H. A. week of November 2-8
found members busily making crepe paper roses
forthe party they gave for F. F. A. The organi-
zation was in the limelight so much that week
that their picture appeared in the Union.
The Homecoming Dance was not the only

chili and "dandy dog" luncheons. The initia-
tion, to which mothers and friends were invited,
was very successful.
The year was not all work, as bowling and
a roller skating party proved to be much fun.

The Fort Atkinson Chapter of the Future
Farmers of America is now in its twenty-third
year. The purpose ofthe organization is to pro-
vide educational, social, and recreational op-
portunities forthe rural youth of this community.
Their motto is "Learning to do, doing to learn,
learning to live, living to serve."
The chapter this year has been very active
under the leadership of Mr. Bergemann, their
advisor. Officers for this year are Bob Draeger,
president, Jerry Vail, vice-president, Harlow
Block, secretary, Roger Draeger, treasurer, and
Jerry Fleck, reporter.
One of the year's highlights was helping
the local merchants put on a barbecue and
auction to raise money for the much needed
swimming pool. They conducted a scrap drive
with half of the proceeds going towards the
new pool, and the other half for the erection
of new cattle barns at Jefferson Fair Grounds.
The F.F.A. boys also trimmed the trees around
the school yard and planted thousands of trees
throughout the community for the purpose of

The G.A.A. presented a full year of sporting
events for the feminine side of F.H.S. Those
initiated as new members this year, although
forced to undergo a series of gruesome tasks,
will admit it was truly worth it. This year's
program introduced various new sports including
table tennis, and basketball, while those such
as kickball and volleyball remained as annual
favorites. A tribute is due Mrs. Kiellenberg and
the senior officers who helped make all this
possible, president, .loan Weckler, vice-presi-
dent, Nancy Bielefeldt and secretary-treasurer,

"A " TEAM BASKETBALL
The Fort Atkinson High School basketball
team, under the direction of Coach Dave Jones,
wound up the season with a bouncing record
of eleven wins and three losses in conference
Our Cards also had the honor of having
the best offensive team in the new Badger Con-
ference. The team scored a total of 857 points
during the season for a single game average
of 61.2 points per game.
Dave Wollet was the top point-maker for the
Fort High team. "Whitey" Knilans and Frank
Zechel were the other high scorers for the Cards.
In the non-conference games, Fort lost to
Edgewood. The last game of the season was
played at Watertown with our boys setting a
new record for the highest score ever made by
a Fort basketball team. The final score was
At the tournament the Cardinals finally beat
Edgerton for the first time this year. Bob
Knilans scored a last second free throw to
cinch the game by one point, 54-53.
When the squad took on Stoughton the fol-
lowing night, the powerful team of the previous
evening failed in their attempt to continue their
wins and took a severe trimming, 61-47.

"8" TEAM FUUTBAU.
The Fort High "B" team started out the year
with much pep and vigor, even though a ma-
iority of the team was composed of boys who
had played football on the "B" team before.
The first game of the new season was played
at Edgerton. The Edgerton boys came up fast
and scored one touchdown in every quarter to
win by a score of 26-0.
Stoughton submitted the next problem for
our gang. The game, which was played at
Stoughton, ended up with the home team on
top of a lopsided 27-0 score. High winds and
dust hampered the passing attack of the Fort
The first home game was played against Lake
Mills. Fort's offense and defense played very
good football until the L-Cats scored their first
touchdown. The "B" team boys then lost their
enthusiasm, and went on to lose the game 18-0.
Before the last game of the year, with Milton
Union, Bill Frentzel and Jim Buchholtz were
elected co-captains for that night and for the
Although our team played better football
that night with Milton Union than they had ever
played before during the season, they lost l9-

five yards to a T-D.

"B" TEAM BASKETBALL
Coach Al Hanke's Bee team has finished the year with a mediocre record.
The Junior Card's final record was nine wins, six losses, and one tie.
Paul Ramsey was the high scorer for the Bee's. He was followed closely by
"Big Obe" Wogsland and "Big Em" Ehlers.
Many of the boys on this year's team will play on the varsity next year. We
hope they continue with their clean sportsmanship and fine team spirit.
Spring has arrived and about twenty-three boys are out for baseball. As
this book goes to press, seven games will be played, not including the tourna-
ment games. Coach Jake Eulberg has hopes of a fairly good team this year.
Seven lettermen are returning and if the pitching holds up, our team should be
right up in there.

The peppy popular quartet that led F.H.S. this year in cheering, is said by the mega-
phone to be, Judy Hanson, Wava Burkhard, Sharon Ashley, and Nancy Bielefeldt.
They were selected by a few chosen faculty and Student Council members. This year's
squad was coached by Mrs. Sa Loutos and Miss Berg.
Snappy Nancy Bielefeldt was known throughout the conference for her zip. As this
is her last year we wish to send her off with a cheer for the gal who's been a pal to the
cheerleaders and students of F.H.S.
Next under our spotlight is Sharon Ashley. Her eyes how they twinkle, Her dimples
how merry, Her cheeks are like roses, For she's our gay "Sharie," No kidding, she's a great
cheerleader and one of our best.
Five foot two, eyes of blue, and oh what those tive feet can do. Yes sir, she's our
"Cookie" and Wava is always ready to cheer the team on to victory.
Last, but by no means least, is that "purky" little "SOPH", Judy Hanson. Although
this is only her first year as an A-team cheerleader, she added a great deal of pep and
sparkle to this year's cheers.
The "A" team cheerleaders always seem to get recognition but we're also very proud
of our "B" team cheerleaders. Our lively "B" team squad includes, Jean Ament, Judy
Burns, Beverly Hartwig, and Judy Fry. They are to be applauded for their undaunted spirit

"THE LITTLE D06 LAUGHED T0 SEE SUCH SPORT"
Things were bound to happen as Laurie Hunt-
ington, a college sophomore maioring in psy-
chology, came home for the summer! And they
did, as the Senior class presented "The Little
Dog Laughed," on Feb. 12. She decided her
younger brother, Wally, her mother and dad,
and everyone in town was mentally unbalanced,
and felt it her duty to straighten them out. Sid
Huntington, her dad, was petulant because Ted
"Deadwood" Wood, his hated rival in the
used-car business, was about to snatch a
dealership from him. Her mother, Martha, was
over anxious about the tea to which she had
invited five of the town's most social-minded
So - Laurie goes zealously to work convinc-
ing her family that they must find their "energy
peaks." Soon, they and "Gus", the maid, were
walking around with thermometers in their
mouths taking their temperatures every hour.
Things became more complicated when Laurie
insulted her mother's female society set.
That night, while Laurie was on a date with
handsome, but moody, Mark Bradford, Wally
read her notes. That did it! They decided to
teach her a lesson when she came home. So
they put on a "show", carrying to extremes the
characteristics Laurie had "psychologized"
them, even demonstrating an unforgettable
- Mother Goose
"Purge Polka" with Mother and Dad Hunting-
ton in their brightest night clothes.
Laurie, very much embarrassed, left home. The
distressed family spent many hours worrying.
Meanwhile, Wally invited "Deadwood" and
Lillian, his wife, to the Huntington house.
When Laurie came home, she was relieved to
find that her father and "Deadwood" were
prospective new partners. Wally and cute Joan
Wood could at last go steady, Mark's and
Laurie's romance blossomed too, and Gus fin-
ally netted Horatio P. Honeywell, bird fancier.
This is only part of what the seniors have to
remember of their class play with capable Miss
Frye as director, assisted by Nancy Uherr. The
many hours spent at rehearsals, the outbreaks
of laughter, the "Ok, start all over!" and Verna
June spraining her ankle added to the excite-
Joanie and Rog are still trying to figure out
how a doorbell can ring without even putting
their fingers on it. Just ask sound man, Jim
Gessl. He can tell you!
And then the post-play party! John Steinke
found his "energy peak"-with the help of
the girls. But then, they all had a big success
