BLACKHAWK STAFF This year, twenty-seven seniors and two iuniors served on the Blackhawk Staff. They were required to file application papers, and were then given the iobs they desired. These were as follows: Editor-in-chief-Kathleen Myszewski, Assistant edi- tors-Sally Shadel and Jacquelyn Werfal, Classes edi- tor-Priscilla Arnold, Art Editor-lzetta Page, Drama and Forensics editor-Kathleen Strieglg Clubs editors-Don- na Murphy and Marian Extrom, Sports editor-Roger Gottschalk, intramural editor-Jeanette Hilts, Business managers-Earl Young, Don Coleman, and Gordon Drake, Assistant business managers-Dorothy Getchell, Patricia Schumacher, Shirley Wenham, and Doris Mas- terson, Photographers-Jeanette Hilts, Wayne Bauer, Gerald Fredrick, Charles Robertson, Donna Kumlien, and Catherine Corkhill, Typists-Joanne Thomson, Evy Joe Goessling, Donna Foreman, Betty Rudisill. The editor and assistant editors met second hour during the school day and did preliminary planning. Some picture panels were made during "second hour" also, and it was not an unusual sight for Miss. Agnew's typing classes to see a table littered with literally hun- dreds of pictures and three editors trying to pick out the best for our annual. There were also meetings of the entire staff at the home of our adviser, Miss Agnew. Group pictures were taken by the Krueger Studio of Hartford, Wisconsin. Students took the snapshots of sports, school life, music, intramurals, teacher inform- als, and many others. Special thanks go to student pho- tographer, Jeanette Hilts, who took the great maiority of the snapshots. Our business managers planned a paper drive in the fall. The whole staff canvassed every house in Milton and Milton Junction. A magazine subscription drive was another fall project, one in which the whole student body participated. In March we sponsored a "Courier" subscription drive and again the whole student body participated. The business managers solicited support from the local businessmen, who proved to be most generous patrons. ln April we had another successful paper drive. We would like to thank Miss Agnew, for the splen- did help and advice she gave us in planning and printing YOUR l953 BLACKHAWK. PAGE THREE This is your yearbook, a book of memories of your lite at Milton Union High School from September, 1952, to June, 1953. ln this annual, you will find things to think about and talk about, and remember. For those of you who are underclassmen, there will be more memories to gather, and more events to come. But, you who are Seniors will prize your 1953 BLACKHAWK most, for in it are memories of your last year at Milton Union. . .HW W Q NX Y xxxXXb , Qc V , . by g 5. J - :-gs-SN .L Q MRS. ROXA PRITCHETT We, the Senior Class of l953, dedicate this book to Mrs. Roxa Pritchett. We sincerely hope that this will show, in some small way, the great love and respect we have for her, for, she has taught us more than music, through playing our solos, we learned self-confidence, from reporting our practice hours, we learned the value of honesty, and through her policy of student government, we learned self-discipline. As a tribute to her, we dedicate not only this book, but our future efforts as useful citizens of our community. PAGE FIVE x . . 4 We hire cnd fire.

BOARD OF EDUCATION For the first time, the board of education was in- creased from three to five members last year at the an- nual school meeting. The past year the board has been busy completing plans for the new gymnasium. After many public discussions, sponsored by the board and the P. T, A., led by A. P. Loomer, president, the pro- iect was officially approved at the school meeting in July, l952. A bond issue of 52l0,000 was authorized. Supt. Charles H. Dorr The contract for the remodelling of the old main room into a study hall, band room, and two classrooms was completed after school started in the fall. A new science room was furnished with modern equipment. Adequate lockers were installed in new areas. An in- tercommunication system was installed. The remain- ing interior changes will be done when the facilities in the new gym are finished. lt was hoped that we might have a new manual arts room also, but the additional cost prohibited it for the present. The board hopes in the near future to pro- vide kitchen facilities, for public use as well as for a hot lunch program. There is need for the appropria- tion of more funds to take care of seating, lockers, and equipment in the new gym. When comparing with oth- er communities of our size, we expect our gym to be as fine as any in the surrounding territory, and one of which our student body and taxpayers will be iustly proud. We wish to pay our respects to the late William Trescher, who, as a member of the board, saw the need for additional facilities and worked hard for their realization.

PAGE ELEVEN Our famous lost words: Donna Murphy, Gerald Fredrick, Don Coleman, Malcolm Astin CLASS OF 1953 In the fall of 1949, we entered Milton Union high with fifty-seven members. During the year Robert Da- vis, Darlene Gierke, Kenneth Schroeder, Peggy Schultz and Donald Starks withdrew. Later three new students, Donna Wunder, James Cockrane, and Helen Johnson entered. At our first class meeting, we elected: Sally Shadel, president, Gordon Drake, vice-president: Mal- colm Astin, secretary, and Donna Kumlien, treasurer. Our faculty advisers were Coach Anderson and Mrs. Benn. When we started our sophomore year, fifty-one stu- dents enrolled. New students were Shirley Craig, Jeanette Hilts, and Paul Evans. During the year LaVerne Ostrander withdrew and William Schellenberger was admitted. Class officers elected for the year were: Don- na Kumlien, president, Betty Rudisill, vice-president, Phyliss Sarow, secretary, and Patricia O'Brien, treasur- er. Donna Kumlien was elected candidate for queen to represent us at the Christmas Formal. Our faculty advisers for the year were Mr. Colbert and Mr. Netzel. At the beginning of the Junior year, there were forty-four students in our class with one new member, Don Coleman. During the year Patricia O'Brien, Phyllis Sarow, Richard Henze, and William Schellenberger withdrew, Ronald Stubbendick, and Francis Boston ioin- ed us. We elected Gordon Drake, president, Evy Jo Goessling, vice-president, Marilyn Jones, secretary, and John Griffin, treasurer. Donna Kumlien and Patricia O'- Brien were chosen cheerleaders for "A" squad. In De- cember, we put on our class play, "Footloose", under the direction of Mrs. Curtis Hotlen and it was a huge success. On May l, we gave the seniors a banquet and dance which is known as the annual Junior-Senior Ban- quet and Dance. Miss Stockman and Mr. Hotlen were our faculty advises for our iunior year. When we began our senior year last fall, forty-one students enrolled. Two students withdrew, leaving thir- ty-nine to graduate. This year our faculty advisers were Miss Agnew and Mr. Mongue. Don Coleman was elect- ed president with Malcolm Astin as vice-president, Donna Murphy, secretary, and Gerald Frederick, treas- urer, his helpers. Donna Kumlien and Patricia O'Brien were elected cheerleaders. This year, the seniors sponsored the homecoming dance, two paper drives, one in November and one in April, for the benefit of the Blackhawk, a "Courier" drive in March netted a nice sum for the Blackhawk, the senior class play directed by Mrs. Gill was also very well oresented by the many seniors participating, and the class trip in May was an event on which everyone had a wonderful time. Our picnic on June 12 closed our last year at Milton Union. Malcolm l.

Gerald Decker, Beverly Blute, Dolores Pieterek, Mary Gotchling. CLASS OF 1955 the prosperous Sophomore class of i953 began the yi-.rr with another money making endeavor. We spon- -,iirilrl ont- of the first dances of the semester. Of inrrrse our "Mixer" was a success! Why? Because we irrrlrniir-cl our treasury We found some capable and dependable leaders in mr rlass officers' Mary Gotchling, President, Beverly itlrrre Vrie President, Jerry Decker, Secretary, Dolores Pri-ri-rek, treasurer, and Janice Dittmer, Youth Center aarnrnrrtee Mary did a fine ioh for us, and should get mrnrre ri-ioiiiritiorr for all those trips between the Siipliornnri- home roorns, keeping us informed of the lrrti-st rlasr, prolulems. lhe fall seemed to slip right along into "Homecom- ing" and vve had our float committee, Beverly Blute, Warren Spangler, Donald Burkett, Gerald Richardson, Donna Bowden, Nola Gray, Eleanor Burdick, and Anne Flarrdolph hard at vvork. They came up with a unique idea, a red "manure spreader" vvith the caption, "Mile ton l1nron's Nevv Spread Formation Will Make Stough- ton Smell". Hovvever, vve did not rate a prize. December' found us half vvay through the school year, and sponsoring our second event. All students of Milton Union were invited to a roller skating party at the Ace'Hi rink in Janesville So, the Soplromores scored again. Everyone had a grand time and no one suffered a single mishap. Being an aggressive class, vve decided to try some- thing nevv. And vvith a great deal of help from Mr. Marsh vve held a "Movie Dance". The feature "Sitting Pretty", starring Clifton Webb, Maureen O'Hara and Robert Young, was follovved by a comedy with Abbott and Costello. All in all our gate receipts showed that over 250 tickets had been sold lvvo students left our class during the year. Gerald DeWar moved to Edgerton and John Fiedler is now serving his country in the Navy. The last impression vve left on the community, was the aroma of freshly baked goods. On April ll, at Desen's Garage, we sold pies, cakes, donuts, bread, cookies, candy, and anything else our mothers would provide. Believe it or not, Carol Erank, Helen Holmes, Kay Arnold, and Thomas Vogel, sold every crumb. PAGE TWENTY We are not as innocent as we look.

PAGE TWENTY-ONE l l 9 Q' We sto rted school not long ago, ,,,..f- xi' Judith Hall, Jean Gregoire, Ellen Munson, Judith Murphy. CLASS OF 1956 This year the Freshman class had seventy-three pu- pils. They came from Milton Graded School, Milton Junction Graded School, and the surrounding rural schools, Three came from the surrounding states- Union Mills, Indiana, Hyde Park, Illinois, and Chickaska, Oklahoma. At the beginning ofthe year we had seven- ty-five pupils, then six left school, and four more en- rolled, leaving seventy-three, the largest class in school. There were three Freshman homerooms with Mr, Colbert, Miss Juneau, and Mrs. Kaney as home- room advisers. We elected Ellen Munson, President, Judy Hall, Vice- President, Jean Gregoire, Secretary, and Judith Mur- phy, Treasurer. To earn money for the class, we sponsored a Sadie Hawkins Sock Hop which took place on Saturday night, December 6, netting 524110. At the last basketball game, the Freshmen sold candy bars, gum and fudge sickles which added 54.05 to our treasury. At the beginning of the year we voted 25C dues per month, later the pupils thought them too high and voted to make the dues S125 per year. We also voted to have our meetings every other week, but due to the fact that there were so many other activities, meetings were not held. Freshmen boys and girls took part in the annual class basketball tournaments. A large percentage of the pupils played in the A Band, Six girlsetwo from Mr. Colbert's room, Judith Hall and Suzanne Goessling, and four from Miss Juneau's homeroom, Jean Gregoire, Mardell Cashore, Judith Murphy, and Sheila Decker, were chosen as cheerleaders. Two of our classmates- Frank McCulloch and Jack O'Neil, played on the bas- ketball squad. Our members contributed very well to the March of Dimes, sold a large percentage of the magazines during the annual magazine campaign with Hildreth Moberly as top seller ot the entire student body, and in March two Freshmen, Donald Link and Catherine Hanauska, were top salesmen for the "Courier" in the "Courier" drive for benefit of the Blackhawk. We planned many activities, but due to inexperience these were not carried through, but when we are sophomores our plans will probably be carried out. PAGE TWENTY-TWO With open mouths and eyes oglow.

When school opened last fall, we were all in hopes of occupynig a new bandroom, but when building com- plications set in, we once more crowded ourselves and our instruments into the "old" bandroom. Shortly, af- ter we were organized in the "old" room, word came to us that we were to move into our new quarters on the third floor so the agriculture classes could meet in our room We were all greatly amazed at the amount of room we had in our "new" bandroom, We could actually stretch our feet out in front of us! We were in such a hub-bub that we completely for- got about electing officers, but Donald Dorr and Gerald Fredrick were selected as color guards and our twirlers 9 ffli. larilyn Kildow, Jean Gregoire, Patricia Schumacher, Dorothy retchell. lc lbnrntliy th-ti'lii-ll, l':iti'ir-in Si'litiin:ii-livr. were Marilyn Kildow, maior, .lean Gregoire, Patricia Schumacher, Dorothy Getchell, and Mary Ellen Dickhotf. Football season was soon upon us and naturally we played for the Homecoming parade and game. Mrs, Pritchett, our very able and enthusiastic director, ob- tained a book of special formations for ball games and other such occasions, and we chose "The Compass" and "The Jack o'Lantern" formations to perform during half-time. "The Compass" consisted of a huge circle and a dial, made up of band members. The dial moved to the North and the band played "Jingle Bells", then it moved to the East and "Sidewalks of New York" was played, then to the South with the playing of "Swanee River" and finally to the West and the band played "Home on the Range." The other formation was a huge Jack-o'Lantern. The band first formed the eyes, nose and mouth, as "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin - Eater" was played. The members in the eyes and nose dropped their caps where they were standing and formed an outside circle around the face. When in their places, the drums began to roll mysteriously, the cymbals clanged noisily and the rest of the band ioinecl in ghost music as the mouth of "Jack" turned very sad. A great deal of credit for this exhibition should go to Gordon Drake, who worked with Mrs. Pritchett to make it a success. Soon the basketball season was underway and the Pep Band played at every game and was asked by Milton College to play at one of their home games. About fifteen members were present and every mem- ber did his best to make a good showing, which they did! respected by oll who know her. i T otitis S i 5 c f 5 I E?

The annual ioint Christmas program with the choir was held in the gym iust before the holiday recess. Many religious chorals, carols, and traditional Christ- mas music was played. The program was brought to a close with "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town," and, for an added touch, real sleigh bells were used in the piece. There had been rumors flying concerning the 1953 Music Tournament, but nothing was settled until Mrs. Pritchett announced that Milton would be host to as many bands and choirs that could and would com- pete this year. This made all the music department ioyous and preparations were under way before we realized it. Of course, the first thing to do was to elect officers. During a band rehearsal, the following officers were elected: President, Gordon Drake, Vice- President, Roberta Randolph, Treasurer, Don Colemang Secretary, Nancy Davis, and Business Manager, Donald Dorr. The biggest item seemed to be financial backing, for the rental of buildings, payment of iudges, and transportation. The most logical thing to do was present a concert. So, on March 5, the band and choir presented a ioint benefit concert in the gym. No specific means of advertisement was used, but the band was divided into two teams, Brass and Percussion and Woodwinds. The main idea was to see which team could sell the most tickets and the losing team had to "throw" a party for the winners. The brass team won by three dollars, but a good time was had by all the members. We tallied an amount of about 5200. Not bad at all! The tournament days were set for April 23 and May TA. The first day was for all solos and ensembles, Mil- ton having about seventy. On May 14, the bands and choirs made their showings. Bands attending the tournament were: Clinton High School, South Wayne High School, Salem High School, St. Catherine's High School of Racine, Wisconsin Acad- emy of Columbus, Milton Union High School, Milton and Milton Junction Graded Schools. The pieces played by the band at tournament were: Symphony in E Flat, Saint Saensg Overture-Jolly Rob- bers, von Suppeg March-Footlifter, Fillmore, and March-Show Boy, Huff. All in all, this was a very inspiring year for the band, full of activity and good times. l A X a .1 if s 1 1, l viii? A 1 'T gfliftig 2 7 i ff.

At this concert, some of our favorite numbers were sung including Russian Picnic, The Pilgrims Song, Battle Hymn of The Republic, and May The Good Lord Bless and Keep You, ln April we gave an exchange concert with the Lake Mills choir. Next year, many more of these ex- change concerts are being planned. lt gives us an op- portunity to listen to other high school choirs, to meet other boys and girls, and to gain new experiences in the field of music. On April 24, the festival for soloists and small en- sembles was held in Milton and Milton Junction, with many other high schools participating. Then, on May TA, the choir and band festival was held. For many FRESHMAN GIRLS' QUARTET Lucy Gray, Nancy Hulett, Jeanette Babcock, Marlene Hahn years in succession, our choir has been in Class A rat- ing, and we hope to keep it in that class. Beside the choir, there were small groups, ensem- bles, and soloists, who sang at the festival and at dif- ferent concerts given throughout the year. These groups met noon hours, during their free per- iods, and after school to practice. The climax of our choir year was singing at the high School Commencement exercises. Although we regret- ted losing many Seniors, some of whom were prize soloists, we were thinking ahead of the Freshmen who will be with us in the year of T953-54. Officers for the year were as follows: Donna Jean Chatfielcl, president, Leo Manogue, vice-president, and Lelia Manogue, secretary-treasurer.

Milton Union opened the season in a non-conference game at Elkhorn and lost by a 13-7 score with the extra touchdown coming in the last few minutes of the fourth quarter. The following week, the Redmen initiated play in the new Badger Conference, meeting Wisconsin High at Breeze Stevens Field, Madison, playing in Madison for the first time in the history of the school. We were defeated by the highly-rated Badger Preps, who went on to rate third place. A polio quarantine stopped all activities for three weeks. The loss of two polio victims, "Art" Arnold and Anthony "Tony" Guernsey-both regular guards dealt a severe blow to the squad. Games with Lake Mills and Jefferson were forfeited. With only one day of practice, the Unionites re- sumed play against Evansville and forced the Blues to go all out in nicking the Reds I2-6. Edgerton, the next opponent, was forced to forfeit the game to Union when a member of their team be- came ill with polio and the quarantine ban was placed on them. Our next contest was the homecoming game with Stoughton who won the Badger Conference Champion- ship. The Redmen held them to a O-0 half-time score, but were unable to cope with the Vikings reserve X Parade 'mer' .

'A' Basketball When the 1952-1953 basketball season opened, forty boys reported to Coach Richard Marsh and assistant Coach Carl Anderson. Among the group were five let- termen, only two of which were regulars on last year's championship team. The team won two conference games during the season while losing twelve. The sea- son record was three games won and sixteen lost. The climax to the season was the double overtime victory from a highly-rated Jefferson quintet on the last night of competition, 48-46. Warren "Punk" Spangler, sophomore forward, was elected captain and most valuable player on the team by his teammates. He scored 238 points in conference play to take second place in total scoring. "Punk's" 314 points in nineteen games for the season helped him set a new school record of 16.5 points per game. He added to his laurels when the conference coaches voted him honorable mention on the all-conference team. The team scored a season's total of 940 points and a conference total of 697 to their opponents 891 points. Their seasonal average per game was 49.4 points to their opponents 60 points per game. Milton Union's lone mark upon the Badger Confer- ence record book is the most number of free throws rnade during the season, 283. Major letter winners were: Seniors-Malcolm Astin, Wayne Cashore, Gordon Drake, John Griffin, "Ron" Stubbendick, manager, iuniors-Kenneth Chase, Ar- lington Guenther, Wendell Kumlien, and sophomores- Warren Spangler.

'B' Basketball Team The Milton Union "B" Basketball squad won eight, lost eleven, and tied one, out of a schedule of twenty games. This record is not impressive, but the team hustled and played an interesting brand of basketball. Four iuniors-George Astin, John Knight, John Ol- son, and John Prox, three sophomores-Donald Burkett, Michael Myszevvski, and Thomas Vogel, six freshmen- Lawrence Johnson, Peter Johnson, Frank McCullock, John O'Neill, Jack Ritchie, William Steitzer, and James Zigler received considerable training and experience to prepare them for the T953-54 varsity. John Knight was elected captain and John Prox was voted the "most valuable player" by his team- mates at the end of the season. The team scored 560 points on l57 baskets and 946 free throws. They took 749 shots for an average of 20 per cent, they missed 235 free throws and averaged 5l per cent. Burkett, McCulloch, Astin, Knight, O'Neill, and Prox were the outstanding players. Prox was the leading scorer with T18 points, Knight was second with 98, and Astin was third with 92 points. Carl Anderson, B team coach, remarked, "A fine squad of boys who were easy to coach because they were interested in improving themselves for the wel- fare of the team and school." Minor letter winners were: Seniors-Donald McMil- lan, Paul Link, iuniors-John Prox, George Astin, John Knight, sophomores-Michael Myszewski, Thomas Vo- gel, and freshmen-Lawrence Johnson, Peter Johnson, Frank McCulloch, John O'Neill, Jack Ritchie, and Wil- liam Steitzer PAGE THIRTY-FIVE In the spring a young man's fancy turns to - - - nlill gum!! pi gdw'll .folks alll! if if Ui' 11 W ' l cgmgg ION " 'Q yr - .iii Whit: X L' Q 5 J i T :ji sq, ' 'Y 'fha' H ' fs .iii Row one: Richard Mullen, John O'Neill, Frank Jones, Thomas Vogel.

As the i953 baseball season opened, the starting nine had not been selected, since graduation had re- moved many ofthe regulars of past years. Five lettermen form a nucleus around which the team will be built. They are seniors, Wayne Cashore, John Griffin, and Ronald Stubbendick, all outfielders, a iunior, Kenneth Chase, lb, and a sophomore, Lester l-lartzell, Qb. A new pitching and catching staff has to develop through playing experience to cope with the competi- tion they will face. The candidates showing the most promise in their various positions are: pitchers-Kenneth Chase, Charles Kildow, catchers-Wendell Kumlien, Paul Wixom, first base-when not pitching, either Chase or Kildow play- ed this position and John Prox saw limited service, second base-Lester Hartzell, Robert Rouch, Frank Jones, shortstop-George Astin, Lawernce Johnson, third baseAWayne Cashore, captain, Thomas Vogel, left fieldAJohn Griffin, Jack O'Neill, Richard Mullen, cen- ter fieldADonald Olson, William Steitzer, rightfleld- Ronald Stubbendick, Frank McCulloch, and Robert Ro- gers, Managers--Ralph Wardman and James Zigler. In losing non-league games early in the season to Jefferson, 4-2, and Johnson Creek, 7-3, the team show- ed plenty of hustle and spirit which was inspired by Wayne Cashore who was elected by his mates to cap- tain them through the schedule.

They were: Eva Mae Ar- nold, President, Janis Dittmer, Vice-President, Sally Shadel, Secretary, Donna Foreman, Treasurer, Vera Hartzell, Point Secretary, Orpha Johnson, Historian, Ro- berta Randolph, Reporter. Shirley Wenham, Sally Shadel, Carol Frank, and Janis Dittmer went to Green Lake for a F.H.A. state convention during the summer. They were gone about five days and really enioyed themselves. They learned more about F.H.A. and brought new ideas back to the club. tn the fall we elected our Student Council represen- tative and alternate which were Evelyn Goessling and Carol Frank. The new freshmen members were told what to do and wear for their comic initiation. They all looked crazy and felt funny as they walked about with their clothes on backwards, carrying a big doll. At night they went through a series of pranks. They felt humiliated but they had fun and will be eager to help initiate the freshmen next year. Most of the girls in F.H.A. went to a rally in Edger- ton one afternoon. We enioyed an interesting program and a demonstration on cheeses. Alice in Dairylad was there, too. In November we started working and planning the annual F.l-l.A. Christmas Formal. Everyone worked hard and we put on a beautiful formal. It was on Saturday, December l2. Our theme was "Winter Wonderland." This year we voted to have the queen from F.H.A. and she was to pick her king from the F.F.A. The court was a girl from each class and her escort. The king and queen were Gordon Drake and Sally Shadel. The court was Doris Masterson, Ronald Stubbendick, Donna Chat- field, Warren Spangler, Kathleen Manogue, Donald Ol- son, Judith Hall, and Leo Manogue. The Home Econo- mic kitchen was decorated as a snack room which everyone enioyed. Some girls brought cookies and served. The formal was a success and everyone had a good time. We sponsored a skating party at Ace-Hi during January. At one of the F.H.A. meetings in January we voted to sell homemade candy during the noon hours. Each girl took her turn at bringing candy during the weeks we sold it. We made some money and the candy was enioyed by those who bought it. On March ll, we held our formal initiation for the freshmen. lt was a pretty affair as the officers alt wore white and red, the F.l-l.A. colors. On April 20, 21 we sponsored a style show. The home economic girls displayed their work during the year. The girls worked hard and the style show was very pretty. Two girls were chosen by Mrs. Kaney to go to the Green Lake Convention and enter the style show there. Then they have a chance to go to the state fair. Our Future Homemakers of America Club accomplish- ed quite a bit this past year, but we hope to accom plish more in l953-l954.

We started in September by electing our officers. These officers and Mr. Benrud attended an Officer Training Leadership School at Oconomowoc, learning how to better perform their individual duties. The float which the FFA. made for the homecoming parade was given first prize by the iudges. We held our initiation in the fall. The boys who were beginning in FFA. this year are not likely to forget this, although we did not do anything that was actually harmful. The greenhorns who had sold a certain amount of Christmas cards were spared the most vio- lent part of the initiation as a reward for their efforts. One of the most important projects we had was the co-sponsorship of the Christmas Formal where Sally Sliadel reigned as queen with Gordon Drake as her king. Late in February we held our FFA. speaking con- test. Donald Coleman was the winner with John Good- ger, Eugene Wenham, Frank Jones, and Edwin Green as the runnersaup. In March several boys from the club went to Mil- waukee to attend the annual carcass contest. Here we were given information on the production and buying and selling of meat from several men who are promina ent in the meat industry. Our banquet, held in the Methodist Church honored the boys who had done outstanding work through F.F.A. in everything from milk testing to giving speeches. The club could not have done these things with- out some way of making money to finance them. A share of the money was given to us from Mr. Ross Johnson who was interested in the advancement of Vo- cational Ag. We did, however, have our own method of raising funds, one of which was selling refresh- ments at various auctions and meetings such as hog sales, beef auctions, etc. Another method we used which was quite effective was the selling of Christmas cards. Another thing that is worthy of mention is the Supervised farming practices which the boys have been and still are carrying out, All totaled we have: five beef cattle, forty head of dairy stock, three hun- dred chickens, seven sheep, twenty sows with litters, and three hundred and two acres in crops. These pro- iects are all a possible beginning in a farming career.

King Gordon and Queen Sally Winter Formol On December l3, 1952, the annual Christmas for- mal sponsored by the F.H.A. and F.F.A. was held in the high school gym. Harmoniers furnished music using the theme of "Winter Wonderland", much decorating was done with pine boughs. The railings were decorated with green pine tied with red ribbon. The door was an arch framed with pine boughs sprinkled with snow. The throne of white lace furniture was beautifully set off with a solid background of dark green pine with blue lights interspersed in the green, The long wall had a drawing dealing with the theme of Winter Wonderland. Two trees covered with snow decorated the stage where the orchestra played. A big cotton snowman hung in the middle of the ceiling held the white i Donna Chatfield, Warren Spangler, Donald Olson, Kathleen Manogue, Gordon Drake Sally Shadel, Judith Hall, Leo Manogue, Doris Masterson. Ronald Stubbendirk streamers that went out to the wall. This year something different was tried. The queen was chosen from the F.H.A. and she chose a king from the F.F.A. Each class chose one girl to represent the class in the court and she in turn, chose her escort. The kitchen was decorated with white snowflakes, then drawings of colored chalk were on the black boards. At one end of the kitchen, decorated tables were placed to look like a small cafe. A few of the F.H.A. girls, as waitresses served cookies, pop, and ice cream. Beverly Schultz last year's queen crowned the queen in an impressive candlelight ceremony. Many spectators watched the grand march led by the king and queen.

The Girls' Athletic Association was organized as soon as school opened last fall and we boasted a mem- bership of sixty-four girls. Darlene Knott was elected our "Prexy", Lelia Manogue, Secretary, Janet Drake, Treasurer, and Gwendolyn Stebbins, Student Council Representative. Mrs. Dortha Grovert was our adviser. The 30th of October found the club in the middle of Homecoming preparations. Our float committee of six girls: Patricia Holliday, Donna Kumlien, Donna Decker, Helen Holmes, Adeline Nitz and Patricia Gre- goire decided on the theme "When The Deep Purple Falls", as we were playing Stoughton, whose school colors were purple and gold. We thought our purple tree with falling leaves outstanding for the occassion, but evidently the judges did not. However, we did come up with one money making proposition. During the Homecoming festivities the group made and sold red and white pom-poms, which raised our bank balance approximately forty dollars. Twelve brave Freshman girls were initiated into our organization this year. They were Sandra Carrol, Mar- dell Cashore, Grace Coleman, Sheila Decker, Jeannie Gregoire, Hildreth Moberly, Judith Murphy, Janet Powers, Ann Schrneling, Marlene Stein, Margaret Zahn, and Marlene Hahn. They were very attractively dressed for our informal initiation during the school day. Each girl was required to wear the following apparel: short skirts above the knees, long brown stockings, make up on only one side of the face, one side of the hair in steel curlers, and the other side in rags. They were also instructed to repeat Girls' Athletic Association backwards to every active member they met. That evening, we held our formal initiation in the gym, which began with a pot-luck supper and ended with a basketball game, The awards for each class are: Freshmen, a G.A.A. pin, Sophomores, a guard which may be attached to the pin, Juniors, gold bars indicating how many years they have been a member, and Seniors, a Minor Mil- ton Union letter with the G.A.A. lettering inscribed on it. This year for the first time, we are giving an award to the outstanding Senior girl for her work in the club. The girls decided to try something new and benefi- cial, so we started dancing classes for any interested fellow who wanted to learn how to dance. The classes were held during Activities Period on Tuesday and Thursday, and believe it or not, 52 boys signed the roll. We feel the class was well worth our efforts and sincerely hope that more fellows will attend our school dances. Our organization sponsored the girls' Class Tourna- ment after school, the second week in March. The Freshmen class gave the Seniors a "run for their money" and were beaten by only three points. The winners of the tournament were the Seniors, runners- up Juniors, and consolation title went to the Freshmen. Luckily we were invited to two play days, one at Whitewater City High and the other at the University of Wisconsin. Ten girls were chosen by the G.A.A. Council to attend Whitewater Play Day. They were: Jeanette Hilts, Donna Murphy, Marilyn Kildow, Carol Brown, Pat Sarow, Joan Roberts and Dorothy Howland. All the Seniors were invited to the Madison Play Day. The girls laundered and starched their gym suits and ended their G.A.A. activities by playing basketball, volley ball, badminton, shuffle board, and ping pong with many girls from other schools. This was a won- derful opportunity to practice the skills they had learn- ed during the year, to carry on good sportsmanship and gave us an opportunity to meet many new friends.

Nothing is too good for Union's Redmen! This is what Mrs. Grovert and the cheerleaders thought when they began to organize a Pep Club last fall. The only available meeting time was at 12:30, thus a peppy group of girls assembled in the math room, one noon, This meeting, and the following two, was held primarily to set up rules, regulations, purpose, and uniformity. Mrs. Grovert presided over these meet- ings, but at the fourth meeting we elected Shirley Wenham as our president. The other officers elected that day were Elaine Kumlien, vice-president, Nancy Davis, secretary, Jeanette Hilts, treasurer. New yells, songs, and even a chant were initiated by the Pep Club members. To help the cheerleaders put them across to the student body, a section of bleachers in the gym was reserved for the Pep Club during the pep sessions, and after the members had yelled the new cheer through with the cheerleaders, the other fans got the general idea. If you ever wondered what that outstanding sec- tion on the south side of the College Gym was, well- that was the Pep Club in action, wearing their white sport blouses and red scarf ties. This year the Redmen had more "downs" than "ups", but everybody yelled their lungs out. Just ask the teachers who had first, second, or third hour classes the following days! Ot course, the Pep Band was on duty, too, and a new "Cheer Song" was added this year which really went over in a big way with the kids land Chieflj But, do not forget who was behind this peppy group of girls and who put up with most of the unending chatter of fifty girls. That's right! Mrs. Grovert was always on her toes with new ideas and her Coe College spirit. So here goes three mighty cheers from her Pep Clubbers RAH! RAH!

Our dues were fifty cents per year. Officers elected at the first meeting were: President, Charles Robertson, Vice-President, Jacquelyn Werfal, Secretary, Priscilla Arnold, Treasurer, Kenneth Chase, At one of the meetings Charles Robertson showed us the different parts of a camera and explained how to develop pictures. Then during the Activities period, we went into the dark room and learned how to develop pictures ourselves. We also learned how to enlarge pictures. ln order to learn how to take better pictures, we went on a field trip in the early part of February. We walked from the high school to the Milton House and took pictures of interesting things along the way. Af- terwards, we developed our own pictures and com- pared the quality of them. Jeanette Hilts took flash pictures of some of the students at the Valentine Dance. She and several other members were on the Blackhawk Staff and many pic- tures for the annual were taken by them, especially by Jeanette. We are sponsoring a photography contest this spring that will be open to all students. These pictures will be iudged and small prizes will be offered for the best ones.

"The Sleeping Beouty of Lorelond" Y ,Hs If 5 "Who is it who has shunned my invitation?" "You've ripped your dress and ripped it badly." SENIOR CLASS PLAY The Sleeping Beauty of Loreland by Frances Homer was staged by the Class of T953 on the evenings of May 18 and I9 in the high school gymnasium. Mrs. Gill directed the play. Its excellent presentation was the result of her fine interpretation and direction. The action of this play took place in the Main Hall of the Palace of a Great Kingdom across many seas. This Kingdom was ruled by a strong Queen and a weak King. The Queen bequeathed her daughter, Princess Beauty, to a wealthy, but stupid, Prince Rupert. Nanny, the nurse, rescued the Princess from the wedding at the. last moment by placing an evil spell of sleep on the Castle. They all slept until Prince Delmar came to waken them and to rescue them all from the evil spell. This play, a highly comedy, full of music, dancing and laughter, with all of the color and pomp of a royal court, was enjoyed by the many people who at- tended the two performances and the matinee on the afternoon of he 18th The cast was: The Queen Jacquelyn Wertal The King . .

"Tony", a sixteen year old guard on the "A" football team, was a iunior student this fall. He contracted polio on September 22, 1952, three days after our first football game at Wisconsin High. He was tak- en to Mercy Hospital at Janesville, for treatment. He returned to school the week before Christmas vacation. We were all very glad to have him back again and hope he will soon be completely well. "Art", became ill with polio on October 8, l952. He was also a guard on the "A" team and is sixteen years old. He was first taken for treatment to Mercy Hospital and was assigned the same room as Tony. Later, when Art took a turn for the worse, he was taken to the Ortho- pedic Division of Wisconsin General Hospital at Madison. We hope that next year he will be well enough to come back to school. We will all be glad to see him again. PAGE FIFTY-SEVEN V0llEYBAlI. "CHAMPS" Row one: Annette Olson, Lou Ann Gunderson, Marilyn Jones, Nancy Flood, Marilyn Hunt.

Mouse is driving a dull blue GMC truck with faded letters, "Getchell's Resort" on the side. Darrel gives "Mouse" a few tips and they're off for Dubuque on the first leg of their iourney. Passing through Dubuque, "Pat" notices a sign along the side of the road which reads "Toot Robertson- Justice of the Peace." Seeing a long line in front of his house they don't stop but go on towards Omaha, where they hope to see Cathy Corkhill, now Mrs. Don Dorr. They find Cathy at home, but fail to see Don, as he is at the gymnasium instructing his muscle-building classes. After spending the night there, they head for Oklahoma City, where they see Shirley Craig, now married to a rich oil well owner. Shirley tells them that "Jerry" Fredrick and Don Coleman own a big dude ranch near Amarillo, Texas, only a few hours drive from there. They stop at the ranch and "Jerry" and Don invite them to take in a rodeo in a near-by town. Much to the surprise of all, they see Donna Kumlien and Jeanette Hilts ride into the ring on wild steers. They talk to the girls after the rodeo, and Donna tells them that after their failure to get on television, as women wrestlers, they took a iob with the rodeo. The girls bid them farewell, and go west, towards Las Vegas. Outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, they stop at an ln- dian stand to buy a few souvenirs. Seated near the stand is an Indian and an Indian maiden. The Indian steps up to wait on them and "Pat" notices that it isn't really an Indian at all, but "Ron" Stubbendick in dis- guise. Looking closer, they recognize the Indian girl as Kathleen Striegl. The two tell of the hard luck they had as a dancing team and are trying to scare up some money so they can return to Wisconsin. "Ron" tells them to stop at "Bung" Young's gambling casino as he has employed many of his classmates. Upon stop- ping there, they are surprised to see Gordon Drake, and his assistant, Kathleen Myszewski, lzetta Page, and Joanne Thomson, running a roulette table. "Bung" has employed Della Fern Lippincott, Esther Hoge, and "Jackie" Werfal as Cigarette Girls. Here they are in- formed that Wayne Bauer is running a sight seeing boat over Boulder Dam. And Betty Rudisill and Donna Fore- man are conducting tours through Death Valley. When last heard from "Ken" Marshall and "Don" McMillan were testing A-bombs at Yuca Flats. Next, the girls go to Hollywood where they find Shirley Wenham who has a iob in the movies as an extra for Elizabeth Taylor. Shirley tells them of Sally Shadel's success as head dress designer at RKO stu- dios in Lost Angeles. They are surprised to see Marian Extrom and Doris Masterson driving a taxicab for the Goessling-Murphy Cab Service, owned by Evy Jo Goes- sling and Donna Murphy. As of yet there have not been any casualties, but "Dorie" is still trying. "Pat" and "Mouse" go to the beach and find Paul Link running a concession stand there. His experience at the R 81 B Market really came in handy. He tells the girls that Marilyn Jones is the star soprano in Darlene Knott's all-girl chorus. Paul has also received word from John Griffin that he and Wayne Cashore were now Admirals on the Battleship Missouri, thanks to "Mac" Astin, the new Secretary of the Navy. This completed the long iourney. "Pat" and "Mouse" happy to find all their classmates in good health, started homeward. PAGE SIXTY-EIGHT time to toke our finol bow.
