They started making plans early in January but actual work didn't begin until sometime in February. Then for a month the library walls enclosed the snap of scissors and the smell of glue almost every night while hilarious fun accompanied the industrious struggle to finish by March lst. March is here, and here's your book. We hope it unfolds the memories of this year as you want them. Editor Norris and business man- ager Peep talking it over.

The High School Chorus has been the most active large musical group of G. H. S. It has aver- aged three concerts a year, Christmas, Spring Concert, and Baccalaureate, for years past. This year it presented a Vesper Concert on October 27, the Christmas Concert, and has plans to tour several neighboring schools March 18. The Musical Festival in Mobridge April 18 is on schedule besides the Spring Concert April 15, and the chorus is hard at work on such numbers as "Donkey Serenade," "Dark Water," and t'Flow Gently, Sweet Afton." Mrs. Greeves directed the chorus until the fall of 1945 when Miss Costain led for a semester. Miss Dell took up the reins the second semester and directed the organization to a superior rating at the 1946 Contest. This year, all music groups are under Mr. Urban's direction.

Originated for the Carnival in December, the comical and crazy, "Village Band," staggered on to give five more performances at Rotary, Agar, Onida, Cheyenne, and before the GHS Student Body. The play will stand forever in the memories of the audiences and cast alike. The girls have three trios this year instead of one triple trio similar to the group which rated superior at the music contest last year. The boys ensemble is an octet busily engaged in "Shortin' Bread," and they plan to defend their last year's superior with success. A mixed octet of four boys and four girls has been formed and has a bright future ahead in the contest. Two band ensembles, a woodwind and a brass ensemble, have been organized also, and these too are highly optimistic. FIRST TRIO SECOND TRIO Ardys Becker, Betty McNeely, Joan Tobin.

For three years prior to losing our first band master, Mr. Schuster, to the armed forces, the band placed first at the Hickory Stick Music Contest in Mobridge. In 1942, after winning at Mobridge, it went on to the National School Music Competition Festival at Aberdeen where the beautiful plaque which hangs from the north assembly wall was awarded to it for placing second in the Class C size schools. For over a year during the war there was no Gettysburg Band until Mr. Jerome Urban came at the beginning of the 1944-45 school year, and began to rebuild the organization. A Spring Concert was given in 1945, and the outstanding Unfinished Symphony by Schubert was the crowning per- formance. With the beginning of the 45-46 school year the band dug in in earnest for the Spring Concert at Mobridge. It presented a War Bond concert in December and the Spring Concert in April with the overture Orpheus the outstanding numberg and went on to Mobridge to take first itself, and one ensemble and eight soloists also placed first. . This year the band is again preparing for The Spring Concert and Mobridge. Two ensembles and fourteen instrumental solos are being prepared by the band members and Mr. Urban for this spring's sessions. The Pep Band, composed of fewer members than the Concert Band, has been active at home basketball games for years. For the last two years it had joined with the Onida Band to play for the District 16 tournament. This year, players from the newly organized Agar band came into the Tour- nament Band in addition to Gettysburg and Onida musicians. Mr. Urban has directed this tourna- ment band for all three years. FOOTBALL With a team loaded with eight returning lettermen the Battlers opened a seemingly successful 1946 football season by handing the Highmore Pirates a 14 to 6 licking. The Pirates were first to score with a quick drive over the goal early in the first half. The Battlers returned with a touch- down with Donald Miller going over for the six and Dana Peep skirting the end to put the Battlers in the lead with a 7-6 margin. Highmore then started the last quarter threat driving down into Battler territory, only to have Jim Combellick, Battler end, grab a Pirate pass and scamper for a 64 yard touchdown. Uncle Sam then stepped in and took one of GHS's key backs, Don Miller, for his own use. The next game did not prove as successful as the iirst with a weakened Battler team receiving a 52 to 0 walloping at the hands of the potential champions, Miller. Miller finished the season un- defeated and unscored upon, and was rated number one football team in South Dakota. The Battlers were again shut out ine their third game of the season when Cheyenne's Braves handed them a 12 to 0 defeat amongst snow and mud. Cheyenne's first score was started by a pass intercepted in the early stages, then with a series of runs and a final pass into the end zone setup their first touchdown. The try for the extra point failed. Then at the change of quarters a Battler punt put the Indians on their own 9 yard line. Then with a triple reverse that completely stymied the home team Cheyenne picked up a 91 yard run which provided the second 6 pointer. The Battlers then took to the air but could not put the pigskin across and Cheyenne won with a two touchdown lead. Mobridge spoiled GHS's Homecoming by slipping past the Battlers in a tougher game than the score indicated-18 to 6. The Tigers' first score was sent over in a series of line plunges, and they sent their fullback over in the last stages of the first quarter. The Battlers then took over on their own fourteen and following some outstanding field running by Chuck Newland, Battler Q-back, set up a pass by Chuck to Jim Combellick for the Battlers only score and to tie up the game. The Tigers came back to run back two Battler punts for touchdown in the second half and to provide their 18 to 6 win. In the final home game of the 1946 season, the Battlers were downed by the Pierre Governors in the Battlers 5th straight defeat. A heavier Governor ll, outcharged the Battlers for 4 touch- downs and 3 extras to set up their 27 to 0 win. In the last game of the season the Battlers were guests of the Faulkton Trojans, with Faulkton edging the Battlers out with a one point margin, 7 to 6. The game started out to look like an easy win for the Battlers as they staged a first period drive into Trojan's territory only to lose the ball on a fumble. In the second period the home team completed a pass for the six points of the game, with an end run to extend their lead to 7 points. The Battlers were held scoreless until the final minutes when Peep completed a pass to Chuck Newland in the end zone. Then a determined Faulkton squad held the Battlers try for the extra point to win the game 7 to 6. 11 sg 5 .... ES!

Two of the the three years were spent on the first eleven and this year he was elected as one of the co-captains. Francis Glodt, better known as "Fritz," was one of the team's mainstays as he was always trouble to the opposing team. Fritz is also a three year letterman, with two years on the starting squad. As a token for the good work in his football career, Fritz was elected the other co-captain. u l lst Row seated: Chuck Newland, Jim Combellick, Edward Glodt, Maynard Westphal, John Cronin, Howard Kunstle, Fritz Glodt, Dale Smith, Dana Peep, Rollie Hinckley. 2nd Row left from right: Arnes Thompson, Calvin Huber, Dean Voltz, Martin Nold, Jack Moore, Harvey Huber, Duane Nichols, Neil Neyhart, Larry Swift. 3rd Row left from right: Darrel Thompson, Robert Spicer, Verne Wager, Jim Tays, Coach Novak, Ronnie Olsen, Robert Houck, Morin Keltgen, Richard Klein, and Keith Keltgen. 35. BASKETBALL W With one returning regular from last year's conference co-champs, the Battlers opened the sea- son with an inexperienced quint. The season was not as record-making as its precedent but the Battlers won ten games while losing thirteen. They were consolation champs in two tourneys and successfully defended the championship of their invitational tourney defeating a favored Cheyenne Indian team. In the conference tournament at Pierre the Battlers were eliminated in their first game by Mil- ler. This putting thefn in the consolation bracket they defeated Faulkton, and then lost to Ipswich in the Consolation finals. The Battlers drew Ft. Pierre in their opening district tourney game, and after 32 minutes of rugged basketball the Battlers yielded to the Buffaloes who went on to the championship. Gettys- burg went the other way in the tournament bracket to defeat the Pierre Indians and Harrold for the consolation championship. The record made by the 46-47 team was not so impressive, but with 5 returning lettermen, Gettysburg is looking forward to a better court season next year. 36 CO-CAPTAIN t I X 'X 1 ll Jinx Cork Jim Combellick-Jim's height and supreme accuracy, made him the mainspring of the Battler quint. He is without a doubt one of the toughest players in the Central Conference, which gave him a natural bid as one of the Co-Captains in the 1946-47 Basketball season. Maynard Westphal-Corky, a southpaw with a lot of height and plenty of speed. His left handed accuracy couldn't be beat as he proved in the past season. Cork was elected as the other Co-Captain for the season. A big cheer goes up as the game gets Maynard, Jim, Dana, and Walt under way. - start their last home game.

Contrary to pessimistic prophecies, the weatherman joined forces with Gettysburg festivities to make our big day one of the most beautiful days that fall. Several other novelties tended to make it particularly different from others. The Marshal and his attendants, and the Queen and her attendants decided to carry out the idea of "Roundup Day," and rode horses in the parade. The football to be used in the afternoon game with Mobridge was dropped from an airplane by Bob Clark. Reigning over the day were Betty McNeely as queen with Betty Norris and Verla Manfull as her attendants and Dana Peep as marshal with John Cronin and Jim Combellick as his attendants. Winning first prize in the class floats were the Juniors with their idea of a battleship and their slogan "Moppin' Up Mobridgef' Placing first among the club floats was the Home Ec Paper Doll Pa- rade. The grand finale of the day was the Homecoming Dance held in the Legion Hall. DECLAM AND DEBATE Loi! to Right: Louann Nauman, Dottie Olsen, Dana Peep, Cath- erine Hall. A large number reported to Miss Bates this year for Declam and so at the local elimina- tion contest it was a tough assignment for the judges to pick the best candidate for the District meet in Hoven. Louann Nauman rated tops in the poetry division. Dana Peep nosed out Mil- ton Starks by a hair's breadth in Oratory. Dotty Olsen surpassed a field of six contenders for the Dramatic spot and Catherine Hall moved ahead of Keith Keltgen to place first among the five giving Humorous selections. Dotty, Catherine, Louann, and Dana made good use of the day in Hoven, bringing home three excellents and a good - which predicts a good chance of taking' the blue ribbons next year, as Dana is the only Senior. son to engage in debating the question, Resolved the State tourney will be held in Huron.
