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
We would like to thank Miss Agnew, for the splen-
did help and advice she gave us in planning and
printing YOUR l953 BLACKHAWK.
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.

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.

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
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

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.
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.

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

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.
We are not as innocent as we look.

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-
We elected Ellen Munson, President, Judy Hall, Vice-
President, Jean Gregoire, Secretary, and Judith Mur-
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-
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.

During the l952s53 school year, the Milton Union
High Band had a healthy membership of seventy-two.
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
larilyn Kildow, Jean Gregoire, Patricia Schumacher, Dorothy
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
respected by oll who know her.

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
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.

the choir and band festival was held. For many

Lucy Gray, Nancy Hulett, Jeanette Babcock,
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
Our next contest was the homecoming game with
Stoughton who won the Badger Conference Champion-

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.

'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

ln May, i952 the F.H.A. held their election of offi-
cers for the following year. 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
tn the fall we elected our Student Council represen-
tative and alternate which were Evelyn Goessling and
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
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

The F.F.A. club had an interesting and varied pro-
gram this year. 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
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
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
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.

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

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
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
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
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
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! RAHl
"Watch the birdie!"

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

"GOOD NIGHT LADIES"
"Good Night Ladies", a farce comedy in
three acts, was presented the afternoon and
evening of December 9, 1952, under the di-

of Helen and Jane Raleigh to save their home
from foreclosure. In the process of solving
their problem, they induced their brother,
Sam, and "Jug" Brown to pose as their maiden
aunts. The aunts were to serve as house moth-
ers for the college roorning house which the
girls decided to run in order to raise the
money they needed.
In the end, after much fun and mischief, the
identity of Sarn and "Jug" was disclosed, but,

FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS OF 1952
This year, we have been inspired by the courage and bravery of
Anthony Guernsey and Arthur Arnold in their fight against polio.
"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.

The girls who made the most points on
serves should not be forgotten. Jeanette Hilts

na Chatfield, twenty-three, Marilyn Hunt,
twenty-one, Donna Murphy and Sandra Car-
roll, twenty. The teams' standings showed
that Marilyn Jones' team was the undisputed

that each team plays the five remaining teams.

Nitz, Janet Drake, Janice Dittmer, Beverly
Blute, Suzanne Goessling, Hildred Moberly.

and it showed up to their advantage during
our noon hour games. Jeanette Hilts was high
scorer with fifyt-eight, Donna Kumlien, fifty-
three, Carol Brown fifty, Virginia Link forty-
seven, Dorothy Howland forty, Clara Dorr
thirty-nine, Darlene Knott twenty-five, and
Marilyn Kildow twenty-four.

game, dependable, and who deserve a great
deal of credit for the winning teams. We
commend Patricia Sarow, Kay Cashore, Gwen-
dolyn Stebbins, Janet Soergel, Grace Cole-
man, and Mardell Cashore,
Jeanette Hilts, a very busy girl, found time
to be our intramural manager. She did a fine
iob, and always had the nets, balls, and
equipment ready, which helped to make a
successful program during our noon hour.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
'Tis a balmy June day in 1963, when "Mouse"
Getchell and "Pat" Schumacher pull into Darrel Rup-
now's service station for a tank of gas before starting
on their westward trip to look up their classmates of
l953. 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,
time to toke our finol bow.

bodies and weak minds hereby make public our last
will and testament.
