FIVE School Board Wayne Davidson, Mrs. Stuart Shadel Archie Striegl, Mrs. Gilbert Birky Harold Martin All citizens of Milton and Milton Junction are proud and happy about having a new gymnasium, one of the finest in Southern Wisconsin. Such a fine building does not iust happen or spring full-grown from somewhere. Many citizens had an active part in making it a reality. A lot of hard work and plan- ning went into it. A lot of promotion, education and urging brought it into existence. Among those who did a great deal in this direction were: the members of the P.T.A. under the leadership of Prof. A, L. Loomer, the Board of Education of which Archie L. Striegl is president, and the student body. Suitable exercises accompanied the breaking of ground on March 25, 1953, with Mr. Striegl turning the first shovelful of dirt. Dedication exercises were held between games on December 3, 1953, with Supt, C. H, Dorr acting as Master of Ceremonies. A basketball tournament was held in the new building on February 22, 23, and 24 which was a big success. A Physical Education program utilizing every student in the high school was given on April 8.

Although the enrollment dropped to fifty- eight due to the loss of Jake Schock, William Alex- ander, and Richard Holiaphel, by the end of the year the treasury had expanded to meet the goal of 3500. The first meeting was devoted to electing class otlicers They were: President, Michael Myszewski, Vine President, Janis Dittmer, Secretary, Karen Ap- pleby, and Treasurer, "Jerry" Richardson Beverly Blute was elected Student Council Representative. Kathleen Manogue was in the Homecoming Court and the iunior class float received second prize in the paiade Five new students registered in the class last fall, They were Sandra Trickle from Janesville, Mae Penre from Walworth, Karen Appleby from Milwaukee, James Dawson from Rhinelarider, and Lester Henning from Watertown, As usual the class had some great ideas for mak- ing money. "Bow Week", during which time each class had a certain colored bow to wearegreen for freshmen, red for sophomores, blue for iuniors and yellow for seniors- and two profitable dances were sponsored. Charles Bauman, assisted by Linda Bing- ham and Kay Arnold, sold candy during noon hours which netted S50 for the class. ln the spring the iunior class removed the tree stumps and carried out the ashes from the rear lot on the left of the school. An odd iob service, washing windows, cars, etc, was also performed. A nice profit was reaped from the iunior class play, "Cheaper By The DOYGITH, Although there were many excellent entries from the iunior class in the forensic contest, Anne Ran' dolph was the only iunior to score an A' with her Serious declaination, "The Whole Town ls Sleeping." The Junior-Senior Banquet was held April 211, the theme being "April Showers." The Methodist Church, where the banquet was held, was decorated very beautifully. The decorations and the planning for the church were under the direction of Charles Bauman and Rose Vickerman. At the dance the pool of water, the "Italian Cafe" effect, the daffodils, and pastel clouds lent a "neva er-to-be-forgotten" atmosphere. The music, furnish- ed by Arny Johnson's band, gave the hnishing touches to the desired effect. Kathleen Manogue and Carol Frank directed the preparations for the dance. Mrs. Grovert and Mr. Gale were our helpful and very emcient class advisors, TWENTY-TWO ,Z A . , . 1 A e A -- Row I: Karen Appleby, Joan Hinkle, Karen Birky, Donald Burkett, Carol Frank, William Alexander, Eleanor Burdick.

The freshman class was well represented in the "A" band, on the basketball and football squads, the baseball team, choir and forensics. Several fresh- men are on the "B" cheerleader team. We have all had a lot of fun during our fresh- man year and are looking forward to three more years of good times at Milton Union High School.

BAND During the T953-511 school year, the Milton Union High School Band membership reached seventy, which was very fine. Activities got off to a roaring start by playing for all the home football games, Members were led onto the held by our drum maiorettes, Marilyn Kil- dow, Jean Gregoire, Mardell Cashore, Helen Holmes, and Mary Ellen Dickhoff. With them were the flag-bearers and color guards: Leo Manogue, James Zigler, and Wayland Arnold, The band fol- lowed and went into the formation of an "'Vl" for the home team and the letter for the visiting team, The football season was high-lighted with Home' coming, The night before the day of the game, a pep session was held in the "old gym", The Pep Band played for this event. On Homecoming after- TH IRTY noon, the band marched through Milton and Milton Junction and also at the game in the evening. Between Football and basketball season, election of ofhcers was held with the following results: Donna Chatneld, President, Roberta Randolph, Vice' President: Nancy Davis, Secretary, James Harrison, Treasurer. Next on our schedule came a most eventful bas- ketball season, The Pep Band took the lead at all home games, but the entire band in uniforms was present on the night the "new gym" was dedicated. Another memorable basketball event of the sea- son was the Varsity-Faculty game for the March of Dimes. The Faculty got the lump on the Varsity by asking the Pep Band to be the Faculty Band for that game, which they did. 'U is UNIQV Row I: Janet Soergel, Anne Randolph, Eileen Geiger, Grace Coleman.

BAND Meanwhile, the band was hard at work on the recording of a class B piece, Andante, by Ingalls for the University of Wisconsin Band Clinic. The band and choir presented a ioint Christmas program which was well attended and well present- ed, even though Mrs. Pritchett was braving a severely broken wrist. This was also the first public appearance in which the new tympani were used. Everyone was very enthusiastic about them, pos- sibly Clue to the fact that they raised the money for the major portion of their cost. After Christmas vacation, work began on tourna- ment pieces, "Italian in Algiers" was the Class A required number, "Bugle Boy" was the march, "Grand Festival," the selected number, and "32nd Division March" was the warm-up march. After about two months of steady rehearsals, the band appeared before the PTA, This program included the tournament pieces plus "Trumpet Pol- ka," "Bell of the Ball," and "Marching Men." The tournament was again held at Milton. Schools participating were: Clinton, Racine St. Cath- erine, Salem, Deerfield, Rock County Rural, and Milton Union. Everyone did very well on solo day, April 29, and on band and choir day, May l3. All in all, the band kept its regular rapid pace this year, Next year it will be minus more than twenty of its members, who will all be missed, but all have iust one thought regarding Milton Union's Band, which is "Thanks, Pritch!"

The Christmas season was fast approaching when Mrs. Pritchett stepped in to organize a Christmas Girls' Trio Nancy Davis, Patricia Holliday Roberta Randolph bert Grelschmann program. The choir was very grateful to her for this task particularly because she was braving a severely broken wrist, but the choir was as determined as Mrs. Pritchett was, so the ioint Christmas program was presented with the band, This was a great success and also a thrill to each member of the organization.

FOOTBALL Milton Union's battling Redmen finished their second season in the Badger Conference with a record of two wins, three losses, and two ties, which placed Union in a tie for fifth place. The seasons total was three wins, three losses and two ties. Throughout the season, Union played a rugged spirited brand of football. ln three of their games they came back from behind to beat or tie their opponents. ln the final two games this was es- pecially true. In a battling game with Evansville, Union came back in the second half to tie and al- most defeat the Blues. In the final game of the season with Jefferson, the Redmen tied the game in the second quarter and then held Jefferson score- less the rest of the game. With the play calling and passing of Ken Chase, the long runs by Jack Goodger, the short timely gains of Ralph Rogers and the very helpful blocks and runs by "Howie" Schmeling and Don Olson, Union made life rugged for their opponents. A solid line which made this possible was made up of: Paul Wixom, Roger Gottschalk, Jerry Richardson, John Prox, and John Knight. For his consistent running and team play, Jack Goodger was elected most valuable player for l953. This honor he most certainly deserved. Due to the loss of eleven seniors the i954 foot- ball prospects are much hampered. The graduating seniors are: backs: Jack Goodger, Ken Chase, Ralph Rogers, Don Olson, Howard Schmeling, George As- tin, and "Pete" Kumlien, Linemen: Paul Wixom, John Knight, John Prox and Roger Gottschalk, Paul Wixom, captain and defensive field general was elected to a position on the second string of the Badger All-Conference team, Those lettermen returning are: Juniors: Jerry Richardson, Jerry Decker, Jim Dawson, Charles Kildow, and Willard Godfrey, Sophomores: Jack O'Neill, Robert Rogers and Jerry Patterson. A young and inexperienced "B" team, coached by Calvin Gale, won one and lost six games. A- mong the candidates for next year are: Jerry Chase, freshman back, and Wallace LaVeen, sophomore guard.

VARSITY BASKETBALL This was the first year for Rollin Natter as cage coach at Milton Union. Although the team won only one game, while losing eighteen, and finished last in the Badger Conference, Coach Natter did a very good iob with the material he had. The team this year was small and inexperienced, but what they lacked in height and experience they made up in spirit and fight. With this determination they forced most of their opponents to play to their fullest ability. Milton Union's spacious new gymnasium was completed for the first home game. It was dedi- cated on December 3, after the Monroe game. Supt. Charles Wetmore, Sun Prairie, president of Wiscon- sin Interscholastic Athletic Association gave the ad- dress, and the high school band, under the direc- tion of Mrs. Roxa Pritchett, played several numbers. One of the highlights of the season was the Faculty-Varsity game. The Varsity squad whipped the Faculty Al-39 in the March of Dimes benefit game which kept a capacity crowd in an uproar all evening. Kenneth Chase, high scorer and playmaker for the team, was elected Captain at the end of the season. He was very deserving of this honor as he sparked the team throughout the season with his offensive and defensive skills. John Prox, a forward, also played some very good ball. He had a good eye for the basket and a keen defensive skill. A transfer from Watertown, Lester Henning, proved to be a good player and did some fine bas- ket shooting. The best prospect for next year's team is Jerry Chase, a freshman forward who worked his way into the starting line-up way through the season after starting on the Bee squad. He was the third highest scorer on the team and was a fine rebounder. Other boys coming back next year are: Frank McCulloch, a guard who played fine ball all season picking up experience as the season progressed, Don Burkett, Larry Johnson, Jack Ritchie, and War- ren Bauer. The major letter winners this year were: Kenneth Chase, captain, John Prox, Pete Kumlien, Lester Henning, Don Burkett, Frank McCulloch, Jerry Chase, Larry Johnson, Jack Ritchie, Eill Steitzer, and James Watson, manager.

B TEAM BASKETBALL Coach Anderson's battling "B's" this past year went through the season with a won three, lost sixteen record. Union's B's started out the season on the night of November I7 at Whitewater where they were defeated 36-35. Throughout the game Union was "sparked" by two hustling sophomores, "Jack" Ritchie and "Bill" Steitzer, who because they put forth so much effort were later advanced to the varsity squad. On December 15, Union, still looking for their Grst victory, traveled to Janesville where they de- feated the Janesville freshmen team 38-32. Throughout the rest of the season Union was defeated all but twice. They defeated Lake Mills 29- 14 and Evansville 29-27. Probably one of Union's best and hardest games to lose was the one with Elkhorn on February 22. Union played very good ball and racked up Al points only to have Elkhorn come back in the fourth quarter to get 45. Sophomore forward, Jerry Patterson, led the in- dividual scoring with 104 points for the season. 'I-2-3-4 Knock! Knock! I-2-3-4 Who are we for? Team! Team! Team! 5-6-7-8 Who do we appreciate? Coach!

General co-chairmen were Janis On December l2, the F.H.A. and F.F.A. iointly sponsored the annual Christmas Formal, The theme for the dance was "Snow Ball". To select the queen, something a little different was tried. The F.F.A. elected two iunior girls and two senior girls for queen candidates. Then a school election was held to select the queen. The results of this election were not disclosed until the queen was crowned at the dance. The three girls who did not win, plus a fresh- man and sophomore girl would make up the court. The girls would choose their own escorts. The king and queen were Gerald Decker and Janis Dittmer. Members of the court were Eva Mae Arnold, Ken- neth Chase, Lucille Staller, Anthony Guernsey, Janet Drake, Waylond Arnold, Jackie Kennedy, Richard Potter, Sue Shellestacl and Gerald Chase. "lt Happened on Fifth Avenue" was the title of the March of Dimes movie the F.H.A. sponsored January 27.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The beginning of the fall term found the G.A.A. ready to recruit new members and to get an early start earning points. New oFlicers had been elected last spring before school was out. They were: Pres- ident, Lelia Manoguep Vice-President, Virginia Link, Secretary, Helen Holmes, Treasurer, Patricia Sarow, and Student Council Representative, Grace Coleman. Mrs. Dortha Grovert was the advisor. Seventeen brave freshman girls were soon initia- ted into the organization. They were: Marsha Gandy, "Connie" Gavigan, Janice Jessup, Jean Jewell, Judy Kennedy, Adella Klemp, Sue Shellestad, Sally Shell- estad, Kay Wright, Mary Lindmark, Joan Jiresek, Carol De Bock, Karen Hillestad, Althea Soergel, Mary Lou von Falkenstein, Laura Sayre, and Sally Slowey. A committee of very cruel upper classmen recommended the article of clothing for the initiates to wear on this important day, Blue ieans tied above their dimpled knees and a man's shirt worn back- wards were the basis of their outfits. Boys tennis shoes fno socks, of coursei and no make-up added a great deal. This was topped off with a head sham- poo the night before-you guessed it, no pin curls, no comb, no ribbons, no nothing, Although it was horrible to observe, all had a good time. The next big event was the Homecoming Parade. The previous week was spent making enough red and white pom-poms for the band members and other students to wear during the parade and game. Although the G.A.A. fioat didn't win a prize, all had a lot of fun working on it, Additional funds were needed to finance the a- wards so a bake sale was held at Lukas Hardware in Milton Junction after Christmas vacation. The girls in the G.A.A. decided to organize a bas- ketball team and invite some neighboring towns over for a game. As luck would have it, the White- water City high girls had the same idea, so it was agreed to exchange games. Several practices were held in anticipation of the first meeting. The guards worked on a zone defense, they learned to use the three different types of zone guarding equally well, FIFTY I s S i .

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION and then went on to prove it in all of the games. The forwards were iust as aggressive during these practices, and they began practicing pivot shots, using a pivot player. They drilled again and again on pivoting, passing, and shooting and their ability to score improved a great deal. By February 9, they were ready for the first game. The girls from Whitewater City High made the trip to Milton Union to play in Union's new gym. Mil- ton's Freshman and Sophomore team won by the large majority of 41-19. Grace Coleman couldn't miss that night and piled up 25 points. lt was soon evident that the Whitewater girls could play bas- ketball, too, and they defeated the Junior and Sen- ior team 22-15. The guarding on both teams was good as was shown by the low scores. Carol Brown led in scoring with 12 points. Two nights later, the Freshman and Sophomore team played the Junior and Senior team at a 6:00 game prior to the boys league with Fort Atkinson. The Juniors and Seniors came out the victors by a score of 21-15. The return game at Whitewater was played March 9. The team plus some of the students made the trip on a school bus. At the end of the Freshman- Sophomore game the score was tied, but White- water came out victorious after a two minute over- time, 26-24. Grace Coleman scored 14 points and Sheila Decker, 7. ln the second game the luck seem- ed to be with Union and Milton's Juniors and Seniors defeated Whitewater, 21-20. Virginia Link scored 11 points and Carol Brown had 10. Members ofthe G.A.A. teams are listed below. Seniors-Clara Dorr, Dorothy Howland, Marlene Edwardson, Gwen Stebbins, Carol Brown, Eileen Geiger, Ginny Link, Jo Anne Roberts. Juniors-Pat Sarow, Mary Urban, Kay Cashore, Jane Roberts.

PEP CLUB Does Milton Union need a Pep Club? Does Milton Union want a Pep Club? These two questions were being asked by many of the girls and Mrs. Grovert. lt was decided that such a club was needed and for the second year began its organization. This club gave the girls an opportunity to get some organized school spirit and help to support the athletic teams. Rules were set up to govern the organization: l. No member could be absent more than three times for the weekly practice on Monday noons. 2. No member could miss more than three of the home basketball games. 3. Each member must wear a white blouse, with a red scarf at all games. Forty-four girls remained loyal to the Pep Club during the basketball season, and got into the spirit of things by voting on a name for the club-the "Red Peppers." Time for a large group to meet was scarce and hindered the membership, but finally Monday noon hour was chosen. The cheerleaders met with it and worked to make the old cheers more effective and to learn several new ones. The "Red Peppers" hope the classes to follow will learn them and use them in backing the future Milton Union Athletic teams.

LETTERMEN'S CLUB After being inactive tor several years, the Letter- men's Club was reorganized as a club tor maior letter-winners in school sports, At the first meeting officers were elected: President, Anthony Guernsey, Vice-president, Donald Olson, Secretary-Treasurer, Carl Klemp, Jr. Mr. Natter was the advisor. At the start of the school year the club was com- posed of only twenty members. The membership was raised to thirty-one with tive new members ioining after the football season and six new mem- bers atter the basketball season, Refreshments were sold at the football and bas- ketball games and members ot the club ushered at the sub-district basketball tournament which was held in the new gymnasium. A committee was set up to look into the pros- pects ot presenting a gift to the graduating seniors. The club unanimously decided to present a cardinal pullover letter sweater to each graduating senior in good standing at the end ot the year. The club de- cided to make this the standard award to the seniors for the years to come. This year the lettermen tried to make their club desirable enough so that every letter-winner would want to take some part in its operation. A set of rules and regulations were set up to protect each member, and plans were made to insure an even better club in T954-55. A trip to the Milwaukee County Stadium was taken early in May. A lot of credit was due Mr, Natter for his ex- cellent help and advice which was very much ap- preciated.

CHEF'S CLUB The Chef's Club was organized this year by fif- teen boys interested in cooking and baking. The meetings were held Wednesday and Thursday dur- ing the activities period. There was no credit given for this class. Planning and meal preparation was done by the boys under the direction of Miss Margaret Weiss, home economics instructor. The Wisconsin Power and Light Company sent a representative to give a demonstration on broiling meats, different fruits, and vegetables, The meat prepared that day was some of the best the boys had. In March pies were made. After the crust was mixed and thrown around the room several times, Carl Klemp, la Verne Staller, John Prox, Michael Myszewski, Anthony Guernsey. it seemed that it would never be anything but it turned out flakier than some of the home economics girls made. lce cream, candy, and a complete meal were made at other meetings. Every member in the Chef's Club enioyed the work of the club this year and learned many new methods of preparing foods. In the homecoming parade Chef's Club float won second place.

The matinee was given on the afternoon of May 7 and two evening presentations on May T0 and ll. Mrs, Natter and Mr. Mongue were co-di- rectors of this hilarious mystery, with Kay Christian- son as student director. The play was centered around two typical, teen- age boys, Wilber Maxwell and Hercules Nelson. The boys surprisingly find that Herc's uncle, whom they visit for a week-end, is a mortician. Not iust that, but there is a walking, talking corpse. The boys are naturally terrified, but they evolve a plan to solve the mustery. There are a few unexpected incidents when Granny and the girls, Celeste and Nina, de- cide to help them. To add a few laughs to the play, Claude, the caretaker, continually tries to pro- pose to Daphne, the maid, who is very set against marriage to him. Finally she weakens to make Claude a very happy fellow. The cast was: Production Crew Publicity: Patsy Gregoire, Patricia Holliday, Adeline Nitz, Roger Williams, Elaine Kumlien, Dorothy Howland.

BLACKHAWK STAFF The Blackhawk staff this year was composed of twenty-seven seniors, four iuniors, and several un- derclassmen.

The informal and school life pictures were taken by the student pho- tographers. Financing the yearbook is always a big problem. ln September a magazine subscription drive was sponsored ending with Carol Powell the top sales- man. ln March, a "Courier" subscription campaign was waged. Carl Fuchs was top salesman. The busi- nessmen of Milton and Milton Junction also con- tributed generously. The editor and asistant editors met after school and nights at Miss Agnew's home to plan The Black- hawk and to "set it up." After the "dummy" was assembled and the copy typed, Miss Agnew, Priscilla Arnold, Kay Christianson and Charles Bauman took it to the Howe Printing Company in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. There they went over it page by page with the printers. The covers and binding were done by Bookcraft, Inc., Milwaukee. Working on this annual certainly benefited all of us greatly, and taught us many things which may prove to be helpful in later years, Much thanks go to all who have in any way helped to con- struct this yearbook and a special thanks to Miss Agnew for her untiring efforts in the production of the i954 Blackhawk. Carol Brown, Paul Wixom HOMECOMING "Harvest Moon" w as the theme of the Home coming Dance which was h l ed October l7, 1953.
