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 time. 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. a ' ' - 4 lk 5- Q! 91 ' il 0 f L uf ,, 4 1,954 .. in L5 , M' 5 Y 4 5,3 , Q xy - , V ew L, 4 '32 , ' fi A 5 an 4, Q "in wzKiW'?'4YA ' 'WP' .

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. R. W. Hunsader 8 R. H.

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 main room. 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 council. YUU TH 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. 60UN6ll. 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 the community. Seated: Mary Ann Nowak, Kathy Shook, Lou Ann Behrend.

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 J 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 you? 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 ' I - , , , . .. . . . funny? I thought Joanie Bienfang as Laurie I I I i ' . I , , . 52 . 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?"

This year the iuniors re- ceived their rings sometime in the first part of May. Miss Graper's 'Starlits', homeroom of tal- ented Juniors, were rewarded for their efforts by receiving honorable mention for their home- coming float. The theme was "Defend Our Fort". The strong pillars of the class were the offi- cers: president, Tom Smrekar, vice-president, Beth Harrison, secretary, Janice Tutton, and treasurer, Diane Becktell. They have done a good iob of holding our class together.

THE FURT ATKINSON HIGH SCHUGI. SENIUR BAND The band got its start this year by keeping in step to some of the world's best marches. With Mr. Wegener leading them through the year, the band elected Sylvia Speer as president, Wava Burkhardt as vice president, Marilyn Matson as secretary-treasurer, and Janice Tut- ton as librarian. Mr. Wegener divided the large group into two bands for the first time. The seventh and eighth graders formed the iunior band and the remaining bandsmen from freshmen through seniors formed the senior band of about sixty members. Both bands presented a mid-winter concert in January. Don Gilkey played a clarinet solo and Roger Lalk, Don Wahl, and Dwane Kamla played a trumpet trio accompanied by the band. The senior band received their new uniforms in April, iust in time for the spring music festival in Whitewater. They have maroon trousers with gray iackets. The junior band will acquire the old uniforms. The senior band sponsored a dance in De- cember called "On the Ball", named after the well known march, "On the Mall". With the money taken in from the dance, the band hopes to take in a musical event in Milwaukee. Our band was also well represented in the massed band concert in Pewaukee. The nine participants from Fort were Don Gilky, Janice Tutton, Evelyn Lehr, Barbara Pihl, Don Wahl, Dwane Kamla, Jim Frisch, Nancy Fullmer, and Roger Lalk. ff F 1?deEA W3 ml ufwa 'FX fm Pmswgwt nh 7' 42:2 'S N 'x "Q N I I ugvv rzvfa' 1 35 sm? aQfwfw7 lid 2aqPW I ,f'l my .,, fx A VV' if .5 , 4 lr X4 4 'x A 'iz 2 4 -I warm ,rw ll J First Row: Mr. Wegener, Irene Sandvold, lynn Prange, Judy Hanson, Sandy Vail, Pat Brummond, Betty Baker, Bonnie Jackowitz, Colleen Holleran, Lucille liebe.

"Yes, and talking about having a good time, how about the trip we took to Milwaukee to see the Milwaukee Journal go to press?" "But don't forget the staff who was respon- sible for our success! Let's see, there's a Miss Drummond, advisor, Joanne Bienfang, editor, Lois Nitardy, business manager, Lorene Rein- hard, art editor, Mary Nelson, advertising man- ager, Joan Ehlers, distribution manager, and Tom Mason and Harry Hoffman, photogra- phers."

This year has proven to be a most successful one for the Future Business Leaders of America. Many new members were received into the club as well as a new advisor, Miss Cates. To- gether with Mr. Kammer, she guided the club through the year. One of the main goals of FBLA is to help to bring about better understanding and co- operation between business, industry, labor, the home, the church, the school, and among the people of our own and other lands. Chosen as officers for the first semester were: president, Donna Rohloff, vice-president, Shirley Behm, secretary, Jean Weckler, and treasurer, Dorothy Albrecht. Officers for the second semester were: presi- dent, Phyllis Koch, vice-president, Dianne Sie- vert, secretary, Joyce Weckler, and treasurer, Lois Nitardy.

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 activity, for much time was devoted to their chili and "dandy dog" luncheons. The initia- tion, to which mothers and friends were invited, was very successful.

F. F. A. 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 stopping erosion. ,f G' X " X ca. Y .14 q xv 5 1 A lv 2 I.

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 Cul 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, Donna Rohloff. :Mfg , 3, 2 My A if :Q I YE ii if J Q XSQIKX in gf 154 Sf 'Z H, ' Af? 1' 'if 4 4 'I..1. rp lollnoo no an 4 or 4 J as, s u Cl ' 1 54 f Q.. .X sms.- J H ..., pl ol I ,. . . .. gn 0 ....., .. ,.,.. ,... .. . ,Ju .

"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 play. 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 66 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 90-75. 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. PURK -1-s J.o."

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 team. 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 year. Although our team played better football that night with Milton Union than they had ever played before during the season, they lost l9- 6. The lone touchdown was made when Jim Buchholtz picked up a fumble and ran twenty- 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. 69 K U .0- BASEBALL Spring has arrived and about twenty-three boys are out for baseball.

With Mr. Hanke as the advisor, initiation consisted of carrying CLUB out "constructive" duties assigned because the boys didn't show up at the regular planned initiation. On February 10, the F Club had a party, to which they invited the G.A.A. girls. The boys also sponsored an all-school dance. i"l"':,-.. 5+ John Hanson Stan Koch Dick Krause John Fry Jerry Vail FO0T8Al.l. CARDS A powerful center. A great asset to the team.

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.

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 women. 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- ment. 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 to celebrate. Gee! . . . to think this all happened iust be- cause "The Little Dog Laughed." Oct.
