This being the thirtieth anniversary of Milwaukee
Country Day School, We, the editors, have tried
to present the sound environment of the school
with its varied activities-scholastic, athletic, and
extra-curricular. It is our hope that the 1947 Arrow
will be of interest and enjoyment to those who
scan its pages.

ln grateful recognition of the twenty-eight
years of loyal and devoted service which he
has given to Country Day School, we dedi-
cate this 1947 ARROW to Ray Ritzler, our
Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds.
Not only has he kept in excellent condition
the beautiful material equipment and campus
of our beloved school, but he has proved
through the years an unswerving friend of
the school and the students. We sincerely
hope that this small recognition will help to
reward him for his unstinting loyalty.

"Birdseed", as he is known to all, has received a deserved tribute from his
classmates by being elected president of the Senior Class. More than anyone
else in school he has the friendship and respect of the entire faculty and
student body. Although unobtrusive in manner, he always turns the laugh
on those who kid him. Active in student government since his election to
the Council as a freshman, he is the backbone of the prefects this year
because of his common sense and integrity. He has done much work for
the publications. He was business manager of the Ledger last year, and as
editor of the 1947 Arrow he is greatly responsible for its success. His special
forte is the art department. His Mexican murals were one of the best
attractions of last year's very successful Junior Prom. Dick can also draw a
bead better than anyone else in the school, having won the annual Rifle
A hard worker in everything he undertakes, he does a creditable academic
job, especially in mathematics, in which he is a whiz. For the last two years
he successfully managed the football team. For his devotion and spirit he
deservedly received the Pierce Bitker Loyalty Prize in his junior year.
Dick hopes to go to Yale University next year: we feel that he will be
successful in whatever field he chooses for his life's work.

Mark has established himself as the big,
strong, and silent man of the Senior Class. ,
When not retiring into his shell, he can be
seen trailing the masters with pink card in
hand. In truth, Mark and Heise share dis-
tinctive honors for the greatest accumula-
tion of make-up cards over a four-year
period. During the winter Mark serves as
manager for the hockey team, and many
thanks have been given him for keeping
those sheds warm. Being cr muscle man,
Mark also puts his brawn behind the shot
and the discus as a member of the track
squad. Although Mark sidesteps activities,
he is always willing to lend a helping
hand whenever help is needed. Undoubt-
edly, he will make his "mark" wherever

his Iuicy Fruit during recitations. His beau-
tiful blushes and uncontrollable laughter

In sports Iim won his letter in football and
then turned his talent to the basketball and
track squads. He is fairly reticent around
school but, nevertheless, sounds his "do-re-

Charlie, the musical prodigy of the Senior
Class, never ceases to amaze us with his
skill, knowledge, and endless puns. He is
an accomplished pianist and clarinetist-
like Benny Goodman, Charlie switches
easily from classics to boogie-and some-
what of a composer as well. His musical
talents have been put to good use in the
glee club, Gamboliers, and assembly pro-
grams. By no means does Charlie's skill
end with music. Scholastically, he ranks
among the top brains, and he is a Student
Cotmcil member as well. In the winter
Senior Leagues claim his time, and he is
an all-season and well-seasoned man in
chess club. With this versatility Charlie
should shine in musical and intellectual
circles at Harvard.

footsteps by establishing a successful law-

Whether he answers to the name of
"Monk", "Warrey Boy", or "Chapman and
his boyish beauty", Bob is still the Casa-
nova of the Senior Class. His reputation
for entertaining fair damsels is widely-
known throughout this area and even in
St. Louis. Bob has also made a name for
himself around school. He won his letter in
football, braved the cold to go out for
hockey, and then held down Mr. Church's
third base. In addition he has been active
in glee club, Gamboliers, and rifle club.
With his scintillating personality and
quick wit, it is certain that he will be a wel-
come freshman at Lawrence next year.

A look of bewilderment, hair standing on
end, tie askew, collar unbuttoned, and
shirt-tail drooping-that's I. C., despite this
photograph! Iohn is not only the class
clown but with his friendly smile and
genial manner he is easily one of its most
popular members. I. C. is very active in all
school affairs, being a member of auto me-
chanics, rifle, glee club, and Gamboliers.
His sports program is equally as full as his
social program, for the football, hockey,
and tennis teams claim him as a regular.
Next fall I. C. plans to follow his brothers
to Princeton-it's getting to be a habit. It is
certain that our jovial Iohn will be Prince-
ton's gain and C. D.'s loss.

Don is one of the more serious members of
the Senior Class, but once his reserve is
penetrated he is friendly and appreciative
of the wit of the class clowns. An extreme-
ly conscientious worker, he keeps up a
good scholastic average, though his neme-
sis is "Wee Wi1lie's" physics class. Don is
also active on the athletic field, playing a
good game at tackle this fall. In the winter
he throws his weight around in the notori-
ous Senior Leagues, as captain of the New
York Celtics, which gave Charlie Cahill's
Harlem Globe-Trotters a good fight for the
title. Along with Charlie, Don is the chief
exponent of "long-hair" music at C. D. He
has also done a great deal of writing for
the Ledger this year.
Don plans to go to Harvard, where we feel
his abilities will be appreciated.

Tom is one of the most versatile young
men in the Senior Class. Besides being re-
nowned as the possessor of an original
sense of humor and the creator of Q. Mont-
gomery Pfuffnique, he is one of the
school's most all-round athletes. Co-cap-
tain of this year's football team as well as
left halfback, he did a large part in helping
C. D. share the conference crown with
Wayland. In the winter he uses his foot-
ball tactics to good advantage in the
Senior Leagues. But, come spring, this
young man's thoughts turn to-baseball,
his favorite sport: for he is captain of the
Green and Gold nine.
Scholastically, he is high in the upper part
of his class. '
Tom plans to follow the family tradition at
Harvard, where we feel his varied talents
will lead to great success.
PAUL HENRY HEISE
Entered 6th form: Rille Club 8: Manual Training 8,
9, 10, ll: Auto Mechanics ll: Ledger ll, 12: Circula-
tion Manager 12.
Paul is one of those people who really
enjoy ill health, for he is absent almost
every other day. Seriously speaking, he
holds down the man-sized job of Ledger
Circulation Manager, having to send out
every two weeks almost a thousand copies
of that publication. In addition he is al-
ways willing to write last minute Ledger
and Arrow articles. His activities have
been Auto mechanics and Manual Train-
ing. "Pugnacious" Paul also excels in that
peculiar brand of basketball, Senior
Leagues. But Paul's greatest love is polo.
at which he played hard all summer. His
two steeds are named "Scotch" and
"Soda". Paul is liked by all for his friendli-
ness and irresponsible charm.
Paul hopes to enter the University of Ari-
zona: we wish him luck.

Reigh is an important cog in the machinery
of Country Day life. A versatile athlete, he
was fullback and co-captain of this year's
football team. He has done a good job on
the basketball team, while in spring he
really shows his mettle by starring on the
tennis squad as captain and by performing
on the C. D. track team.
As far as academic matters are concerned,
Reigh consistently makes the honor roll,
part of his success being due, undoubted-
ly, to his mastery of the art of "the gran-
deur of generality". He is active in extra-
curricular activities, for he is a Gambolier
and an assistant editor of the Arrow. He is
one of this year's prefects.
Reigh plans to go to Yale, where we wish
him the best of luck.
RUDOLPH EDWARD MAYER

Rudi entered Country Day two years ago
and has accomplished a great deal since
that time. Scholastically, he ranks in the
upper half of his class: moreover, he has
displayed his athletic prowess in varsity
football, varsity hockey, and varsity track.
Rudi was elected to the Student Council
this year and did as fine a job on the
Council as he has done in every other field
in which he has participated. During the
course of the school year Rudi has proba-
bly taken more kidding than any other
member of the class: but, as might be ex-
pected, Rudi received it with a good-na-
Next year Rudi will attend either Cornell
or Brown. There he will be as successful
as he has been at Country Day.

Larry is one of the most well-liked mem-
bers of the Senior Class. His chief charac-
teristics are bow ties and a shy manner,
punctuated by uproarious bursts of good
humor. He is fairly active in extra-curricu-
lar activities: he goes out for Glee Club.
Auto Mechanics, and Art Club. He was a
former class president and was elected to
the Student Council as a sophomore: as
one of this year's prefects he takes his
duties seriously. Because of a dislocated
shoulder he could not go out for football.
but he was the manager of the I. V.'s this
year: in winter he goes out for varsity
hockey and, in spring, for the track squad.
He is a conscientious worker.
Larry is planning to follow his brother Dan
to Princeton. We all join in wishing good
luck to a swell fellow.
HERMAN FEHR MERKER
Entered first form: Rifle Club 8, 9, 10, 11. 12: Manual
Training 8, 9. 10: Auto Mechanics 12: Football 12.
Herman has the distinction of having en-
tered Country Day in kindergarten and of
thus beginning the climb up the Country
Day scholastic ladder which ended with
his graduation this Iune. Herman used his
tremendous bulk to good advantage on
coach Laird's football team as well as in
Senior League basketball. Spring found
Herman tossing the shot on Mr. Oviatt's
track squad. In the field of extra-curricular
activities Herman has shown interest and
has participated in both rifle club and auto
mechanics. This winter Herman joined the
newly-created ski team, whose snowy
gambols he greatly enjoyed. Next year
will find Herman at Wisconsin, if he does
not decide to go elsewhere.

Soap-box Iohnny, one of the few remaining
members of the old guard, would give
Demosthenes and several others a run for
their money if they were alive today. He
has maintained a remarkable scholastic
record at C.D. Iohn has brought recogni-
tion to himself and to the school by twice
winning the Milwaukee Sentinel Hearst
History Contest. If he were to be with us
longer, it is likely that we would need
an addition to the library in order to house
the I. Meyer History Collection. In the
extra-curricular line lohn has served as
editor of the Ledger and assistant editor
of the Arrow, contributing much to the
success of these publications.
Iohn will be a member of the class of '51 at
Harvard, where he undoubtedly will make
his contribution to scholarship.

Bob came to us from Whitefish Bay High
School last year and quickly painted him-
self into the Country Day picture. His
cheery disposition and genial personality
have won him many friends. In the sports
line he puts his bulk to the Senior Leagues.
and extra-curricularly speaking, he is one
of the camera clickers for the Arrow. He's
a numismatist at heart, and all his spare
cash goes into rare and ancient coins. His
presence is easily recognized at noon by
his familiar and continual lunch-room con-
tention of every boy at the table, for the
emarks are usually humorous.
Bob is interested in attending a business
school in the East. We wish him the best
of luck and know he will succeed.

he has at Country Day.

Iim has been a member of the class of '47
since the fall of '41, when he entered C. D.
in the eighth form. He quickly adapted
himself to his new environment and made
his way toward the top of the class, schol-
astically, where he has remained ever
since. Iim's talents are not, however, lim-
ited solely to school work, for he has done
a fine job in varsity hockey and he has
been an important member of the glee club
for the past two years. A list of Iim's ac-
complishments would not be complete
without mentioning his work on both the
Ledger and Arrow. He has been business
manager of the Ledger, editor of the
Ledger, and a contributor of articles for the

Steve joined the class of '47 in his fresh-
man year. During his four years at Coun-
try Day he has proved himself to be a
swell friend to all those who have been
associated with him. He has been a hard
worker and is very deserving of all the
credit he has earned. In the fall Steve con-
tributed to the success of the football team,
and in his Senior year was given the Most-
Improved Player Award. During the winter
he has employed his fighting ability in his
daily skirmishes with the Senior Leagues.
The glee club and the Ledger were his
choice of extra-curricular activities. Steve,
also prominent in student government, was
elected to the student council in his junior
year and served as a prefect this past

Bill, or Sully, came to Country Day in his
freshman year. In his four years at the
school he has been prominent in extra-cur-
ricular activities including the glee club,
rifle club, and auto mechanics. For his
hard work in the tackle position he won
the distinction of being elected to the All-
Conference Second Team in his Senior
year. After a winter season of fighting in
Senior League basketball he joins the
track squad as a weight man in the spring.
Bill also maintains his fighting spirit in
the classroom, where he has waged many
a battle with a faculty member. Of course,
the teacher always won, but Bill must be
congratulated for his aggressiveness. Bill
did, however, win many an argument with
the freshmen, while he was serving as
chairman of the initiation committee.
So far, Bill is undecided as to the college
question: but, wherever he goes, he has
our best wishes.
MARSHALL ALFRED STAUNTON
Entered 12th form: Glee Club: Religious Discussion:
Football 12: Varsity Hockey 12: Varsity Baseball 12.
Marsh entered Country Day as a Senior
this year and rapidly established himself
as one of the most popular boys in the
class. His amiable disposition and good-
natured smile are always welcome as are
his humorous remarks which, incidentally.
are made at the most unexpected times. In
the fall Marsh devoted his time and talent
to varsity football. Winter found Marsh
braving the elements on Mr. Church's
hockey squad, and spring discovered
Marsh out on the baseball nine. Besides
these athletic accomplishments Marsh be-
came a bulwark of the bass section of
Country Day's glee club. Unless there is a
change in plans, Marsh will probably en-
ter Brown University next fall, where we
are certain he will make as many friends
as he has made here at C. D.

Rusty, who entered Country Day in the
sixth form is one of the few musically-
minded members of the Senior Class.
Being a jazz enthusiast, he has written the
jazz column in the Ledger for the past two
years. He really knows his artists and
titles, and he can play the piano very well
himself. His athletic ability shines in the
spring, at which time he is a mainstay of
the varsity tennis team. In his Senior year
he also served as assistant manager of the
football team. Rusty, one of the driving
members of the class, has been commend-
ed by his classmates for getting himself
out of several "traffic jams". At any rate
the old green Buick will be missed on the
parking lot next year, when Rusty will be
attending Yale University.

George, or Bill, has been recognized as
one of the outstanding athletes of the
Senior Class. He came to Country Day in
his freshman year and since that time has
won six major letters. In the fall he played
guard position on the football team. In the
winter season he proved to be a good
shoveler as well as an excellent goalie on
the hockey team. Spring has found Bill an
important part of the recently revived

Iohn is the only Titian-haired boy in the
class of '47, but unlike most red-heads Iohn
does not possess the proverbial short tem-
per that legend attributes to them. When
one thinks of Iohn, one immediately envi-
sions a good-natured, reliable young man.
His work on the business staff of the '46
and '47 Arrows pleased Mr. Devine and
even P.W.W., when he saw the statements
of profits and no losses.
Iohn's outside interests are music,-classic
and boogie,-les femmes fatales, and driv-
ing. A staunch member of Senior Leagues,
a manager of the C. D. nine, and a life-
member as well as manager of the glee
club, Iohn leads an all-round life at C. D.
Brown University will welcome Iohn, when
he arrives in Providence in September.

Griff, or the self-appointed "average boy",
came to Country Day in his sophomore
year. He is undoubtedly one of the most
popular boys in the class, having made
many friends in his brief career at Country
Day. In the athletic line Griff has played
varsity football, Senior Leagues, and var-
sity baseball. He has demonstrated his
vocal talent in both the glee club and that
select group, the Gamboliers. He served
as the vice-president of the glee club this
past year. Griff has been one of the chief
contributors to the popular luncheon con-
versations, at the same time managing to
eat his share of the meat allotment. In his
spare time he may be seen giving his
many female friends thrill-rides in his
ever-shiny convertible. Next year Griff
will probably be at Brown University: but,
wherever he goes, C. D. will certainly miss
his always-smiling face.

It is always interesting to observe on.e's
classmates and wonder what each will be
doing twenty years hence. With your permis-
sion we, the humble editors of the '47 Arrow,
shall make our predictions with regard to
what the future has in store for the members
of our class.
If the readers should have occasion to visit
the thriving metropolis of New York in 1967,
he might very well meet the eminent physi-
cian, Dr. Mark Bach, at some exclusive bach-
elor's club, enjoying every comfort of life,
with the exception of feminine companion-
ship, which Mark apparently considers any-
thing but a comfort. The visitor is perhaps so
overcome by the rich elegant splendor of
Mark's habitat that he fails to notice two
other distinguished gentlemen at a corner
table, but a glance in that direction will be
rewarded by a businesslike nod of recogni-
tion from two of the most respected business-
men in the nerve center, Mr. Stephen Seidel
and Mr. Herman Merker.
Although one does not wish to leave the
congenial atmosphere of the club, the day is
drawing to an end, and one more visit has
been promised. The visitor leaves the heart
of the city and directs his footsteps toward a
fashionable studio on the outskirts of a swank
residential district. The knock on the door is
answered by an immaculately dressed recep-
tionist who leads the weary visitor upstairs
into a brilliantly sun-lighted room. Here,
Richard Griffith, a wealthy, unmarried engin-
eer, and his good friend, Dr. George Weg-
mann, are indulging in their mutual hobby.
painting. A talk with the two gentlemen con-
vince the visitor that both are happy, and he
is amazed to learn that Dr. Wegmann is the
proud father of three children. Reluctantly,
the visitor leaves the two gentlemen, for he
has a dinner engagement at a fabulous New
York night club. As the visitor enters the
dining room, his attention is immediately
drawn towards a table directly in front of the
stage. The manager of the club, Mr. Anthony
von Wening, is gaily chatting with two well-
dressed couples which closer scrutiny reveals
to be Dr. 6: Mrs. Thomas Whitney Grossman
and Mr. 6: Mrs. Iohn Wood. The visitor joins
the group, talks over old times, only to be in-
terrupted by a fanfare from the orchestra. All
eyes are directed toward the stage as one of
America's best young comedians, Griff
Winnie, makes his entrance. Winnie's act is
a laugh riot, and the audience fails to restrain
its hearty applause until Mr. Robert Chap-
man, an insurance man, and his charming
wife agree to perform an original dance
which they have created in their leisure
hours. Mr. Chapman is at first rather hesitant,
but the genial von Wening finally persuades
the flustered Chapman to perform. The dance
is a success, and upon its completion the
Grossmans, the Woods, the von Wenings,
and the Chapmans decide to retire to the von
Wening penthouse to discuss old times.
Those members of the class not mentioned
heretofore are situated in various parts of the
country. One contingent which has remained
faithful to the old hometown includes Dr.
Iames Schwartz, Dr. Willis G. Sullivan, Ru-
dolph Mayer, an engineer, Donald French,
a promising young attorney, and Robert
Rosenberg, a renowned restauranteur, cater-
ing exclusively to the diet conscious public.
Two other class members are living in
nearby Chicago. They are Iames Boyd and
Lawrence Maclver, both well-to-do manufac-
turers with lovable families. Still another
twosome may be found doing research work
at M.I.T. I refer, of course, to the brilliant
physicist, Dr. Iohn R. Mayer, and his capable
associate, Dr. Iames Burlingame.
Two more representatives may be found on
the West coast, enjoying a good deal of suc-
cess. One is Dr. Paul Heise, a skilled phy-
sician, who plays polo in his spare time: the
other is one of the finest coaches in the coun-
try, Arthur Miller, whose teams in both foot-
ball and basketball have done remarkably
well. Four members of the class have not
as yet been mentioned, but their time has
come, at last. Professor Charles Cahill is
slated to become Harvard's next president.
Chapman Chester, a wealthy businessman,
has become one of America's greatest agri-
cultural enthusiasts, still delighting in slaugh-
tering chickens and roosters in his spare
time. Marshall Staunton, and Reigh Klann,
both unmarried, have temporarily aban-
doned their respective occupations, law and
business, in order to tour the world with no
particular resting place in mind.
Thus we conclude our prophecy based
partially on present plans and guesswork,
but at any rate we are certain that regard-
less of whatever we may become we shall
all get our share of enjoyment from life.

The current school year of 1946-47 has proved to be a banner year for the junior class,
scholastically, academically and athletically.
As usual, Frank Wyse walked off with scholastic honors. Dick Crittenden, our notorious
chess fiend, and Ron-Ron Laskin also represented the class more than a few times on the
The class officers were Nimbo Enzer, president, and Skip-Dime-a-Ride Swisher, treasurer.
This year was Skip's third term as treasurer, and he certainly has done a very fine job. A
large part of the Student Council was made up of juniors, to say nothing of the Ledger staff,
whose ranks were filled by several of our members.
On the athletic field the class of '48 was well represented. Bob Kloppenburg, Maurey Reuter,
Skip Swisher, Nimbo Enzer, Bert Oviatt, Bud Woody, Ierry Bischoff, Bob Sullivan, and Dan
Gute played a good deal of varsity football for coach Laird. Representatives of the junior
class in hockey and basketball were numerous, also. Bob Kloppenburg, Nimbo Enzer, Skip
Swisher, Bill Howland, and Butch Meyer played some fine hockey. On the basketball squad
were Iim Windsor, "Colonel" Toepfer, Maurey Reuter, Bob Sinclair, Ierry Bischoff, Dick
Crittenden, and Bud Woody, all of whom played good ball. At this writing it is impossible
to tell just what will happen during the last quarter of the year, but we could do a little
prophesying. Bob Kloppenburg, Art Toepfer, Bob Sinclair, Bud Woody, Nimbo Enzer, and
Bill Howland played some baseball last year and will probably repeat their performances
this year. Herman, "the chemist", Frentzel, Steve Swisher, Ierry Bischoff, Maurey Reuter,
and possibly Nimbo Enzer will compete on the track team. In all probability, Dick Crittenden
and Steve Swisher will head our candidates for the tennis team.
As a parting note we of the class of '48 have already begun to groom ourselves for our roles
as "grand old seniors", and extensive plans are well under way for Freshman Initiation

We, as sophomores, feel pretty proud. With a few exceptions we are all sixteen years old.
Not only are we old enough to know better, but above all we are old enough to drive, and
most of us have obtained our licenses. By the way, these licenses are certainly a boon,
because no longer do we drive with that constant fear of the law in our minds. It would
be a silly question, of course, to ask us if we really knew how to drive. We guarantee that
we shall equal if not surpass this year's juniors as "car fiends".
Three new boys were added to our class this year: Iohn Bird, Tom Seymour, and Bob Slensby.
We still have the largest group in the upper school, thirty-two to be exact. ln athletics we
are well represented in all varsity groups due to the fact that we have a number of good
all-round athletes such as: Iim Reuter, Pete Kuelthau, Phil Krueger, Iohn Gesser, and Bob
Scholastically, we do fairly well. Henry Blume has kept a close pace with Frank Wyse of
the junior class and names like Tom Frank, Iack Bruce, and Karl Hettwer are often crowding
the honor roll.
One interesting bit of news is that Chuck Squier "resigned" as our class president at
the beginning of the year. He had held that honorable position ever since our first elections
in the junior school. Yes, Charlie was beginning to remind us of our present governor,
Walter S. Goodland. "Bashful" Iim Reuter has taken over Chuck's job and, with the assis-
tance of Mr. Waterman and Mr. Devine, he has kept everything running smoothly. lack
Bruce is still taking our hard-earned money away from us.
Concerning the annual freshman-sophomore pull, it was natural that we were the victors.
In fact, we had the freshmen halfway down to the junior school.
Now that we can drive legally, we are becoming more socially inclined. We promise you
that next fall the parking lot for non-seniors will be full of cars, whether they be powered
by a gasoline engine or a rubber band.

After electing our class officers, Dan Swisher, president, and Dick Mellon, secretary-treasurer,
the freshman class was ready to begin the new year. New faces were welcomed into our
class on the first day of school, bringing the total number of freshmen boys to twenty-eight.
Our first task was to survive the freshman initiation. On the third day of school the seniors
"dragged" all the poor freshmen into back rooms to determine which boys were "smart-
alecks". This unlucky reporter fell into that category. Although a few boys were kept on
freshman rules longer than others, the class as a Whole performed very well the duties re-
quested by the seniors.
The class is keeping up its good record of last year. Again there are usually seven or eight
members on the honor role each time the Ledger publishes the list, with Dan Swisher and
Bill Dickens leading the class.
Met with equal enthusiasm at school are the athletic contests. Football found Dan Swisher,
Dick Mellon, Tom Reuter, and Norm Wigdale best representing our class on the Iunior
Varsity, while Kearney Carpenter and Puck Worden plugged for us on the Iunior Leagues.
When winter rolled around, Mellon, Reuter, Wigdale, Alon Winnie, and Dick Bourne often
played in the "B" games along with the rest of the basketball squad. Carpenter and Worden
represented the class on ice. With the prospect of skiing being installed as a new sport,
there seems to be possibilities of a large freshman turnout. Considering last year's talent
and the new material from other schools, our class should make an excellent showing in
the spring in baseball, tennis, and track.
The various activities receive whole-hearted consideration from our boys. The Glee Club
claims such crooners as Norm Wigdale and George Toepfer. Rifle, chess, and manual
training-all have enthusiastic supporters, while Dick Mellon frequently writes articles for
Our new members are: Bob Ausman, Fred Bury, Marsh Clark, Bucky Peirce, Tom Reuter.
Kasten Tallmadge, Hugh Teweles, Pete Vilter, Norm Wigdale, and Iohn Thayer.

The eighth grade, twenty-six strong, welcomed six new members to its ranks. The new boys
are: Don Allan, David Blume, Henry Blommer, Edward Brumder, Phil Mayer, Iim Sullivan and
Nelson Wild. The entire class succumbed to the power of the Royal Order of Muki, an old,
old society of the school.
The eighth formers are well represented in all phases of athletics. In football, Tom Evinrude,
Pete Wegmann, lim Sullivan. and Henry Blommer were members of the undefeated Iunior
Varsity. The Iunior League football squad played two games against Hawthorne High with
a 7-6 victory in the first game and a l3-l3 tie in the return engagement. Tony Gallun.
Captain, was the team's spark-plug in both games.
Under the direction of Mr. Wilson and Mr. Ramaker, the basketball team trounced Fox Point.
Nine eighth formers have made the freshman team . what it is???? Ted Gviatt, Charlie
Bourne, and David Blume are using their special talents on the hockey team.
The strong baritone voices in Glee Club belong to Iim Sullivan and Henry Blommer. Other
boys have organized a Iunior Glee Club under the direction of Miss Von Rohr.
The pistol-packing eighth graders are the "big guns" on the rifle range.
Scholastically, we are proud of the number of boys consistently on the honor roll. Iim Weber
was elected president of the class with Ted Gerhardy as secretary and treasurer.
It is evident that the eighth grade has made itself felt in the school and, when l95l comes
around, the graduating class will be proud of the record it has left at the School upon the Hill.

There are two main goals of Student Government at Country Day School: to supervise student
discipline by the students themselves, and to train the students in the duties of citizens in a
As far as organization is concerned, there are two groups in Student Government: the Prefects
and the Student Council. The Student Councillors are elected by each class to serve until
graduation, each class electing additional Councillors every year. The Prefects are chosen
as follows: at the end of each school year the outgoing Prefects choose about two or three
Iunior Prefects, with the consent of the faculty, these Iunior Prefects become Prefects the next
fall, and, with the consent of the faculty, they choose two or three new Prefects to help them.
The duties of Council members are to supervise discipline in study halls, on busses, and
generally, to report infractionsg every Friday there is a Student Council meeting, then there
are discussed ways of handling study halls and proposed changes in the rules governing
discipline and in the Constitution which is the basis of Student Government. For the past
few years the penal code governing student discipline at Country Day has been the ndemerit
system". This has Worked very successfully, although some changes have been adopted
every year. The basic ideas are a definite number of "demerits" for each type of offense -
an infraction of study hall rules, etc. If more than five demerits are received by one boy
during a two-week period, he must work them off on Saturday afternoon. If a boy goes
without demerits for a certain period, he receives "merits" which cancel demerits, but he
must have demerits before he can receive "merits", for otherwise someone might bank up
a lot of "merits" and go on a "demerit spree". At the same time, a certain number of demerits
will put a boy in various stages of probation, which might lead in the end to expulsion.
But there is not only punishment for the wrongdoer, but incentive for the law-abiding, since

Swisher, Kloppenburg, Howland, S. Swisher, T. Frank, Squier, Huebsch. Front Row: Critten-
den, I. Reuter, Enzer, Cahill, Wood, Burlingame, Lown, French.
if a boy goes Without demerits for four Weeks, he will get out after his last class on the last
day of that period. Also, if a student receives less than five demerifs in a "term" fbetween
vacationsl, he receives an extra day of vacation.
Some changes in the rules have been made this year. The rules for probation have been
changed, with the lower limit of probation lowered and the expulsion limit raised. Also,
at the beginning of the year the Councillors had a hard time keeping order in Study Hall.
New and stricter rules were adopted, some interpreting indefinite parts of the demerit laws,
others aiding the execution of existing laws.
The duties of the Prefects are to judge infractions of the rules reported by Councillors, to take
charge of chapel and other programs, and to take a general leadership in Student Govern-
ment by forming a bridge between Council and faculty, just as the Council is a means of
revealing the ideas of the Student Body to the Prefects. To this end, the Prefects meet with
members of the faculty every Friday before Council meeting.
Above all, it is true, as Mr. Pick, the Student Government advisor, has stated time and time
again, that to have good leaders We must have good followers. In this respect the past year
has been an extremely successful one for Student Government because of the great interest
shown by the students themselves. As everyone knows, Student Government will never be
perfect, but every year attempts are made to improve it. An amendment has been intro-
duced and widely debated this year to make Student Government more democratic by
having one year Council terms instead of election "for life", the final outcome is not known
when this goes to press, but a remarkable interest has been shown by the students, even
in details and side issues. All in all, it has been a good year for student improvement.

. The Arrow
As the Arrow statt knows, the publication ot the Country Day yearbook is quite a major
undertaking for those boys who find the brunt of the load on their shoulders.
A great deal of the work has been done by Dick Griffith and Iohn Wood, the two editors
this year. To Dick the Arrow is indebted for the many cartoons and for much ot the planning
ot the layout. Iohn has taken on the executive duties: organization of advertisement solici-
tations, arrangements with the photographer, Mr. Platzg and other business arrangements.
These boys have been ably assisted by Reigh Klann and Iohn Meyer, assistant editors ot the
Arrow, and by Iim Schwartz, who has given a helping hand with the writing. Due credit
must be given to Robbie Williams, our hot-shot photographer, who is always available to
snap informal pictures, around-school pictures that contribute a large part ot the school

The Arrow is supposed to be a pictorial review of the year, supplemented by quantities of
written material. We have tried to picture the school as it is-at work, at play, at athletic
events, and at activities, and in so doing to capture the inimitable atmosphere oi the school
upon the Hill. Also in the Arrow there are informal pictures of the teachers and classes and
ol the graduating seniors.
The Arrow Staff of 46-47 hopes that this year's Arrow lives up to the reputation and standards
established by previous editors. It is our hope that we have given an accurate and true
picture of liie at Country Day School, a picture ol this memorable year that will last in
years to come.

Probably no boys receive less credit lor more work than the members of the Ledger staff,
the fellows who are responsible for the appearance of a mature, well-balanced newspaper
every alternate Wednesday ot the school year. A member ot the Ledger statt not only writes
articles late at night after the completion of his regular homework but also is frequently re-
quired to spend Saturdays and Sundays writing his articles or going over the "next issue"
with the printer.
This year the Ledger editors were Iohn Meyer, Tom Grossman, and Iim Schwartz, each of
whom has done cr commendable job. The work of these editors entails far more than acting
in a supervisory capacity, for if every article is not presented on time or it anything goes
wrong, it is the editor's job to remedy the situation, even if it means writing an additional

wrote several articles apiece for each Ledger and who are being groomed for editorship
Besides the editorial department just mentioned, there is a business staff that is responsible
for the Ledger's financial success. Dan Gute, the business managerg Bob Sullivan, the adver-
tising manager, and Paul Heise, the circulation manager with his assistant, Steve Seidel,
have done a fine job in their respective positions this year and certainly deserve a great
deal of credit for their work.
The remaining praise can be directed in no better direction than toward the two faculty
advisors, Mr. Devine and Miss Bossort. Both have done a tremendous amount of work this
year, especially in proofreading, and their advice and inspiration have immeasurably aided
the members of the Ledger staff when difficult situations arose.
We feel that the members of this year's staff have done an admirable job and that next
year's staff will further the progress of publications at Country Day to an even greater
Of the many activities offered at Country Day none is more popular than the Glee Club.
The organization at present includes approximately one-third of the students in the upper
school, and from all indications its popularity and importance are increasing every year.
Mr. Clayton, the director of the group last year, left the faculty of the lower school this year,
and, consequently, many people wondered who would direct the organization and with what
degree of success. Although the more important concerts are yet to come, we feel that
from early performances Mr. Clayton's successor, Mr. Earl Morgan, and the members of the
club have more than fulfilled pre-season expectations. Mr. Morgan has had a great deal
of experience with choral work, especially at his church, and has succeeded in winning
the friendship, admiration, and cooperation of every boy in the club. Much credit is also
due to Miss Von Rohr, who acts as accompanist for the group both at rehearsals and at
The Glee Club began Work shortly after school opened last fall with one-half hour practice
each Monday and Thursday with the exception of those weeks during which examinations
were held. The boys deserve congratulations for their industry and perseverance after
learning that because of a change in program at the senior school their rehearsals would be
fifteen minutes shorter.
As yet the Glee Club has performed only once, at which time it sang a Negro spiritual, "Go
Tell It on the Mountain", for the Women's Club at the Athenaeum. Of course the most im-
portant engagement is the annual Spring Concert when the Country Day Glee Club and
the Downer Glee Club appear jointly. The Country Day group has already begun work on
songs for that concert, and unless plans are changed, the organization will probably sing
such songs as: Cole Porter's "Begin the Beguinen and Vincent Youman's "Halleluja" in the
semi-classical field, a few Negro spirituals such as "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel", "All Day on
the Prairie", a cowboy song, and a group of religious works. Certainly such a program
would provide variety, melody, and choral charm in the abundance so necessary for a
successful concert. In addition to the Downer Concert others may be scheduled for the future.
At any rate the Glee Club will deserve every bit of praise it may receive, thanks to the skill
of its director, Mr. Morgan, to the cooperation of both its president and vice-president, Tom
Grossman and Griff Winnie, respectively, and especially to the untiring efforts and serious-
ness of purpose of all its members.
Glee Club Concert
On March 21 and 22 another Glee Club Concert was offered by the combined Downer and
Country Day Glee Clubs. The selections on the program differed a little from those of pre-
vious years, for we boasted of a soprano solo by Gwenne Duquemin, a soprano and tenor
duet by Gwenne Duquemin and Griff Winnie, a new female sextette, The Racketeers, and
the ever-popular male group, The Gamboliers.
The boys, under the direction of Mr. Earl P. Morgan, offered a group of popular numbers,
among them cz tricky arrangement of Ioshua Fit de Battle ob Ierichoi and the girls, under the
direction of Miss Cecile Ustruck, offered a group, whose high point was I Heard A Forest
After the various specialties were given, the combined Glee Clubs with Mr. Morgan directing
sang Star Dust, Goin' to Heaven Anyhow, and Begin the Beguine. The spiritual in the group
was done a cappella and showed the natural qualities of youthful soprano, alto, tenor.
and bass voices.
The concert was another high mark on the long list of past successes.

One of the more important extra-curricular activities and certainly one of the most enjoyable
for its members is the Gamboliers, an octette composed of fellows who are interested in
singing the harmonious songs of their grandfathers' day in the barbershop fashion that made
the songs famous.
This year the Gamboliers consist of Bob Chapman and Reigh Klann, at first tenor, Griff
Winnie and Tom Grossman, at second tenor, Chapman Chester and Charles Cahill, at first
bass, and Ierry Bischoff and Bob Sullivan, at second bass. Chapman, Klann, Winnie, and
Grossman are completing their second year in the organization, while the other four mem-

As one may infer, this article is being written before the first public appearance of the group,
however, the songsters have raised their voices at a few school functions, and if one may
judge their worth with a reasonable degree of accuracy from the way in which they sang at
those times, we predict that their future engagements will be successful.
Although the boys have not as yet decided upon what their songs will be or what pattern
their program will follow, We wish the fellows the best of luck in carrying on a tradition that
began eight years ago and has every appearance of continuing as long as there are eight
fellows at school who enjoy singing together.

The Rifle Club last year holds first place in popularity among all the activities. The Club
meets every school day except Wednesday, under the direction of Messrs. Waterman, Wilson
and Hughes. The members shoot for National Rifle Association awards ranging from Pro
Marksman to Distinguished Rifleman. The boys shoot with guns supplied by the school
or with their own guns.
During the war supplies of shells were rather scarce, but now we receive them from the
War Department through the National Rifle Association. The targets are N.R.A. official fifty
foot targets. The maximum possible score is fifty points, and shooters who have achieved
this score are members of the exclusive 50 Club.
One of the most popular events in riflery is the contest which takes place late in the year
and is open to everyone in school regardless of whether or not he is in the Rifle Club. The
competition includes shooting in the prone, kneeling, and sitting positions, and the winner
is awarded a gold cup.
Training in riflery is invaluable in these times, not only because some of the members may
enter the Army or Navy and put their experience into practical use, but also because everyone
at some time will come into contact with firearms and early instruction is worthwhile. In
addition, members learn the mental and physical discipline necessary for good shooting.
In the final analysis, however, shooting at Country Day is fun rather than discipline.

The most recently formed of the clubs, the Chess Club, completes its fourth year in l947-48.
The club is the third most popular, after the Glee and Rifle Clubs, with twenty-two members.
Once more the club was supervised by Mr. Hughes, who has consistently routed many
members who doubted his supremacy at chess, although the more outstanding players such
as Dick Crittenden, Frank Wyse, Henry Blume and Bill Howland have often pitted their skill
The club has met on Tuesday of each week in the fifth form room of the Iunior School and
now takes this opportunity to apologize for any confusion in the arrangement of the desks
in that room after the meeting. The boys have brought their own boards and men and have
paired oif differently each week to enjoy the game so often considered the exclusive pastime
of long-haired professors.
An annual tournament is again planned for this year and is last becoming a custom, it will
be open to all players and will serve the dual purpose of classifying the members according
to their skill and of giving each member the opportunity to play each of the other members.
A match or two with other schools are also in prospect, and we have even more and better
material to choose from this year. Our team had the remarkable record of one match
lagainst Elginl, one win and no losses.
It is to be hoped and is indeed quite likely that the Chess Club will continue to grow in
importance, for a large portion of the players come from the younger group of Country Day
students. The club is undoubtedly greatly increasing the interest in the "game of kings"
in the school.

The main reason four industrious students joined the Art Club was to avoid the sixth period
study hall. All four expected to have a gay time with the new art instructor, Ervin Nowicki.
Much to their surprise they found Mr. Nowicki prepared for them with a full program. Before
the year was over, they learned much about art and its appreciation.
The first phase of art to which the students devoted their attention was drawing. By means
of gesture drawing the student gains a certain freedom in working with drawing materials.
At first glance gesture drawing looks like scribbling, but in reality it is the basis of good
drawing. Gesture drawing also helps the student observe the human form only as action.
This perspective helps make the picture more interesting.
The second phase of art explained by the instructor was mass drawing-that is drawing
without lines. Mass drawing helps gain such effects as folds and shadows. This type of
drawing can be contrasted with pen and pencil drawing. The latter satisfies one's desire
to depict fine detail. In order to improve their techniques in these three types of drawings
the class studied the paintings of noted artists whose works exemplified these three kinds of
drawings. All this work was two dimensional in expression. Three dimensional expression
was considered by working with clay. In this medium the boys made pottery and figures.
In the spring the class studied landscape drawing. This venture appealed to the boys be-
cause it allowed them to be free from sixth period study hall and to be out in the open air.
About once a month Mr. Nowicki allowed the boys to express themselves artistically by
creating anything that came into their heads. The four students tKearney Carpenter, Dick
Bourne, Ioe Cutler, and Peter Wegmannl proceeded to express themselves in various and
sundry ways. As a result of this course four boys had a good time and learned much about
art as a creative expression of one's personality.

The 1947 manual training group is once again very ably headed by Mr. Cal Cooper. As in
previous years "Cal" does not instruct the boys but merely lends a talented hand with some
ot the more difficult jobs of the shop.
The boys are working on various projects, using several different types of materials to con-
struct them. Hunters Marsh Cushman and Ed Hipke are completing their gun cabinets, while
Ronnie Laskin continues to work on his screens. Lamps have been started by Iim Weber
and Fred Buryg Peter Wegmann's work on a beautiful lucite utility box comprises the only
work in the field of plastics. In one corner of the shop the Tom Evinrude shipyards are turning
out model boats. Working directly across from the shipyards, Dave Tallmadge has devoted
his time to the repairing of the new machine lathe, which was damaged shortly after its
arrival at the school. There are quite a few other articles which are nearing completion, such
as bowls, trays, novelty reminders, cigarette holders, and ash trays.
Several boys have found it necessary to drop out of manual training because ot a contlict
of activities, which could not be avoided. For the most part, however, the boys who chose
this activity have been able to take advantage ot the opportunity to use the modern machines
which are not available at home.

The auto mechanics course was organized again this year under the capable leadership of
Cal Cooper. The group was composed entirely of the members of the B-Senior Physics class.
The boys who participated received extra credit for the work which they accomplished. The
group met every Wednesday during the second period.
During the first several meetings, Mr. Cooper explained thoroughly several individual parts
of the automobile engine such as the fuel pump, carburetor, distributor, and induction coil.
The members were then divided into groups of two and assigned to separate motors. The
various groups took the engines apart and re-assembled them, rearranging such important
parts as the pistons and crankshafts while doing so.
For the most part, the engines used were old model T Fords, which were bought cheaply at
various junk yards.
The course took a great deal of time, but the Work was very interesting and certainly pro-
vided a valuable education for the car and driving enthusiasts. Much credit must be given
to Mr. Cooper for the great help which he gave the boys.

The Country Day eleven of the past year proved itself one of the best in recent school history.
The members of the team compensated for their lack of size with speed and precision, but
above all with clean aggressiveness. As has been the custom at Country Day, the team spent
a week at Red Arrow Camp with conditioning, bull sessions, and basic fundamentals being
stressed. Following the final scrimmage at Red Arrow, the team returned to Milwaukee,
eagerly awaiting the first game.
Undoubtedly the most dismal day of the entire season unfolded as Country Day met its first
opponent, a comparatively weak Lutheran eleven. The blue-clad Lutheran aggregation
dominated the play throughout the afternoon, and as the day came to a close a tired, spirit-
less Day team found its way to the dressing room on the short end of an 18-13 score.
The melancholy attitude quickly transformed itself into one of revenge, however, and after a
week of hard practice a wary but determined Green and Gold team took the field against an
exceptionally large Lake Forest outfit. At first the game appeared to be a defensive battle
with a tie in the offing, but the Lake Forest eleven suddenly sprung an elusive halfback
into the open thereby scoring the first marker. Although the conversion was missed, it looked
as though the hard-fighting Day team would lose its second game. Then what most observers
believe to be the most inspiring, if not the most thrilling, play of the season occurred. Bill
Miller, who had an injured shoulder, trotted out on the field with instructions to attempt the
one pass play that had thus far been most successful in practice scrimmage. The play was
calledg Miller faded back, heaved the ball forty yards downfield into the waiting arms of
Steve Swisher, who had long since passed the safety man, and the score read 6-6. Miller
split the uprights with his place-kick, and the half ended. The second half was a see-saw
affair with no apparent advantage on either side, and at the sound of the final gun, the
Dayites were ahead, 7-6.
A week later the slow starting Day eleven reached full speed and never slowed down. A
bewildered Northwestern Preps team was literally blasted off the field by the speedy, hard-
charging Dayites, who racked up 27 points in the first half. The final count was 39-l2 with
the Green and Gold out in front.
The fourth game was played on the Northwestern Military's Naval Academy field against an
inexperienced cadet team. The Day backs scored practically at will and built up a substan-
tial lead. The first team saw little, if any, action in the second half, partly because the other
boys deserved a chance to play, but mostly because a world-beater Wayland team was to
invade the Country Day gridiron a week hence, and therefore injuries in key positions would
mean almost inevitable defeat. The cadets never threatened and were easily defeated, 26-U.
The season reached its climax as the Dayites took the field against a powerful, weighty Way-
land team that was unbeaten and untied. The Day eleven played its finest game that day
with the unbeatable combination of machinelike ball-handling, vicious tackling, and brilliant
blocking. Country Day was outplayed but not outfought in the first half, which ended with
Wayland in the lead, 14-12. The second half was a lesson in contrast. The Green and Gold
struck out with a fury that failed to let up as the crimson Wayland team crumbled under the
onrush, never to rise. The Day backs swept the ends, piled through the center, and passed
until the Beaver Dam team completely yielded in utter confusion. A weary, happy Day team
left the field that Saturday with a sweet 32-14 victory that will never be forgotten.
Coaches Laird and Hughes, though delighted with the team's performance, nevertheless
realized the pitfall of over-confidence and handled the ticklish situation with care, while pre-
paring for the last game of the season against Day's arch-rival, M. U. S. The M. U. S. game
was played on a slippery turf, and the first half saw an overly-confident Country Day team
pushed all over the field, although the Day team held a one-point margin as the half ended.
As in the Wayland game the second half proved to be the turning point. An aggressive
Country Day eleven completely out-maneuvered the ill-conditioned M. U. S. team in every
phase of the game, and the final score placed the Green and Gold on top, 34-12.
And thus the books are closed on one of Country Day's most successful football seasons,
however, the season was not a joyous one in entirety because one of the scrappiest, hardest-
fighting members of the team failed to finish the season physically, although his influence did
more to guide and inspire the team than any other factor. Indeed, Country Day legally used
twelve men on the field for the last five games, and that twelfth man's name is Bert Oviatt.

This fall the Iunior Varsity had their most successful season to date. The 1946 team of
Coaches Wilson and Oviatt found themselves undefeated in their five-game schedule. Rigor-
ous practice began with the beginning of school, although seven members of the team had
been at football camp with the Varsity the preceding Week. The squad included forty boys:
one senior, seven juniors, nineteen sophomores, ten freshmen, and three boys from the eighth
form. At the end of the season we found that the following boys had played fairly con-
sistently through the year: guards-S. Swisher, Wigdale, G. Meyer, Hanson, tackles-
Sokol, Windsor, Rove, Bruce, ends-Krueger, Slensby, Iohnson, R. Bourne, centers-Baum-

The I. V.'s opened their season on September 27 and closed it on November 7, playing
Lutheran High School on both dates. Strangely enough, the score in both games was S-U
in favor of the Green and Gold, and the single tally Was pushed across in the first quarter
of both contests, largely due to the efforts of Iohn Gesser. In the first game Gesser returned

showed improvement in the second contest and more fight in the remaining three periods,
although neither was able to score again.
The I. V.'s easily beat the Rufus King gridmen by a score of l3-6 in their second game. The
team showed a great deal of sparkle and polish over their first contest and left the field
On Friday, October 18, the Green and Gold crushed its arch-rival, M. U. S., to the tune of
33-0 in a frosh-sophomore game. Since the juniors were not allowed to play, a chance was
given to some of the younger players to prove their prowess. This, Tom Reuter and Tom Evin-
rude did to good advantage, scoring 12 and 13 points, respectively.
Perhaps the crowning victory was the defeat of the Whitefish Bay freshmen. Country Day
I. V.'s had never beaten the Bay in all the years of competition until Tuesday, November 5.
The Dayites journeyed to the Bay field where, after a scoreless first half, Tom Reuter ran up
three touchdowns, while the Bay gained one. Credit for one of our goals must go to Bob
Slensby for his beautiful shoestring catch on the 2-yard line, from where Reuter scored.

Country Day's basketball team failed to measure up to pre-season expectations and did not
enjoy an overly successful season. Captain Miller, however, won individual scoring honors
for the league in addition to a position on the all-conference team. Almost all the boys were
young and comparatively inexperiencedp but they should form the nucleus for better teams in
years to come.
The season opened on the Day floor against a well-balanced Lutheran aggregation. Despite
better than average play by the Dayites. the score was 46-35 in favor of Lutheran.
Country Day lost its second game on the home floor when Wayland's Redmen defeated the
boys in green and gold by the close score of 33-30 with Windsor contributing 14 points.
A mediocre Lake Forest quintet succeeded in beating the Days on the Lake Forest floor by a
score of 37-24. The game was exceptionally rough and Lake Forest used the home floor to
The team won its first game against a poor Northwestern Prep team i.n the Country Day gym
on Friday, the thirteenth of December. Miller scored 29 points, and Windsor made 22, thereby
contributing 51 of our 65 points. The final score was 65-29.
The team dropped the next two games against its arch-rival, M. U. S., and a good Port
Washington combination by respective scores of 38-29 and 45-39.
Country Day won its next game against Lake Forest on the home floor by a score of 49-40,
but lost its game against Port Washington a Week later by the score of 40-19.
The following day the team met defeat to the tune of 51-43 at the hands of a machine-like
North Shore outfit.

A week later the team travelled to Watertown for the game with Northwestern Preps. Miller
and Windsor played good ball, and the Day team won handily, 45-32.
Unable to carry out a winning streak, Coach Wilson's quintet played Northwestern Military
Academy and lost by a score of 35-34.
The next game found Country Day on the short end of a 47-38 score against M. U. S., although
the boys played better ball than they had been playing throughout the year. The game was
rough and fast, and Country Day lacked the versatility, balance, and reserve strength
of the University School.
Country Day won its return engagement against the Naval Academy the following week by
a score of 48-34, as Captain Miller dropped in 22 points.
On Friday, February 28, the Dayites met Wayland for the second time and, after a hard-
fought battle, lost 42-27.
The team lost the last two games against North Shore and Lutheran by a score of 69-38 and
51-28, respectively. The defeat at North Shore came about largely through the efforts of
their high-scoring forward, Ralph Harper, who contributed 32 of the winner's points. The
Lutheran game was a different story in that the Green and Golders played mediocre ball,
whereas their opponent's play bordered on the spectacular.
The season officially ended with the'annual hockey-basketball banquet at which awards of
all kinds were made.
Bill Miller received the award for the most valuable player and Iim Windsor won the award
designating the most improvement. Although this season was not too successful, almost
all the boys are returning, and we wish them the best of luck.

When the weather turns cold and the snow starts falling in early winter, shouts of joy and
pain can be heard from the little gym. Their cause? The notorious Senior League has
started in on its season. Since so many Senior Leaguers are former gridiron stars, it is not
strange that the Senior League brand of basketball resembles a combination of tackle foot-
ball, soccer, and lacrosse. The rules as to fouling are blithely ignored, indeed, the practice
is so common that Referee Ken Laird can only catch a small percentage. The Senior League
style of basketball relies more on vocal chords and brawn than on tricky playing.
This year the Senior League was divided into four teams. These teams played each other
alternately all season. Leading at the beginning of the season was Charlie Cahill's Harlem
Globe-Trotters. But Charlie's team, Whose other star was the great Griff Winnie, fell behind
at the end of the season to third place. The New York Celtics, captained by Don French.
whose efforts were buttressed by those of Carl Weigell and "Terrible Tom" Grossman, worked
its way from second place to champion, winning 16 games and losing 7. In second place
was Steve Seidel's Redskins, with 14 wins and 9 losses. One of this team's stars was "Pug-
nacious" Paul Heise, who is Senior League basketball at its best-most typical. Bringing
up the rear was Iohn Wood's All-Stars, who had for an ace shooter "Charlie" Sullivan.
At the end of the season Mr. Laird offered a gallon of ice cream for the winning of a tourna-
ment between the teams. The Celtics came through again, Winning 3 and losing none. The
Redskins won 2, lost l, while the other two teams lost 2 each.
The next event on the intra-mural basketball calendar was a struggle between the Varsity
"B's" and a choice team composed of Senior League stars. After a hard struggle the Senior
Leaguers went down to defeat, 38-34.
The season closed with the annual class tournaments. The various class teams were com-
posed mainly of the flower of the Senior Leagues. This classic was won by the Sophomores,
with 3 Wins and no losses. For second place there was a three-way tie, the Seniors, Iuniors,
and Frosh each losing 2 and winning l.

The Iunior League basketball teams were made up of the freshmen and eighth-formers.
These boys were divided into two teams. The more experienced played in the big gym,
and the less experienced played in the little gym.
The boys in the little gym were divided into four teams which were matched evenly. There
were two games during each afternoon, and the teams were changed frequently in order
to make the playing combinations more uniform. These games were refereed by Mr.
Ramaker, who always managed to be impartial in his decisions. There were numerous
occasions when teams consisting of three or four boys played against a team of five boys.
Sometimes the games were very close, for the winning score was often made in the last
second of play. Other games were obviously push-overs.
The highlight of the year, as far as the boys in the little gym were concerned, was a series
of games played against the Iunior School's quintet. The first of these games ended with
the Iunior Leaguers on the short end of the score, but in the second game the Iunior Leaguers
were victorious. The third game was very exciting, as the score see-sawed back and forth
many times. The game went into overtime after the score was dead-locked, 29 to 29, at
the end of the fourth quarter. The coaches decided to play a sudden-death period, conse-
quently the Iunior Leaguers won, 30 to 29, on a free throw by Kasten Tallmadge.
This game brought to a successful conclusion the Iunior League season, during which all
boys had fun playing and learning the game.

This year the Country Day hockey squad copped second place in the Southeastern Wisconsin
Prep Hockey Conference. The undefeated St. Iohn's Military Academy sextet placed first,
and Country Day was followed by Messmer, Shorewood, Marquette, and St. Francis, re-
spectively. The record this season for the C. D. pucksters was five wins, two ties, and three
In the beginning of the season Coach Church's sextet was fairly green and young, although
there were four lettermen on the team. Enzer in the nets and Rudi Mayer at right defense
were new fixtures.
In the first game of the season the Days trimmed Messmer, 2-l. The Bishops played good
defensive hockey and stopped the C. D. boys for two periods, but Chester drilled the biscuit
into the draperies twice on assists by Kloppy. Romanski sneaked the puck past Enzer for
the only tally of the day for Messmer.
The second game saw a tough Marquette team hold Country Day to a 2-Z tie. Marquette
scored twice before the Days were aware of what was happening. Then Chester and Klop-
penburg slapped the rubber into the cage in quick succession to tie the score. A third C. D.
goal was nullified by an offsides penalty. It was apparent from this game that the boys
were not ready to work as a unit.
In the game with St. Francis the Dayites easily won, 8-6. It was a game characterized by
high scoring and not very good hockey. Although the C. D. offense clicked at times, the
poor condition of the ice turned the contest into a game of shinny. Kloppenburg and Howland
each scored three goals, while Chester and Butch Meyer racked up two tallies.
The boys in Green and Gold took Shorewood into camp, 5-U, in the first game after the big
snow. The Country Day pucksters had the advantage in that they had been able to practice
after the storm, whereas Shorewood had no ice. The Days' offense was really clicking and
everybody played heads-up hockey. Swisher scored three goals and Butch Meyer slammed
home two scores.
A week later the Red Men of Shorewood came back and held Country Day to a draw, 4-4.
There was a change in the C. D. front line. Kloppenburg and Chester exchanged wing and
center positions, respectively. Chester, Howland, Swisher, and Kloppenburg each racked
up one marker, and the two Kruegers of Shorewood slapped the biscuit past Enzer for four
goals. This game was really the best game seen on the Day ice this year.

St. Iohn's Military Academy came up with another crack team this year, one of the best seen
around here in recent years. They invaded Country Day for the first game and went home
with a 4-0 victory. Farrell and Schwalba, their sterling right defense, each scored twice.
The boys from Delafield had a pressing offense and a large number of capable reserves.
Suffice to say that Country Day was no match for the Cadets.
In the return engagement with Marquette the Country Day sextet pushed their opponents all
over the ice to the tune of 5-2. The team had been laying for them due to the earlier dis-
heartening tie. The Marquette boys, in addition, were not in condition, and although this
was not the peak point in their season, the Dayites did a very finished job on the boys from
12th and the Avenue.
The return tilt with the Cadets at Delafield was even worse than the first game. The Days
came home on the short end of a 6-l score. Swisher scored the lone Day tally of the day
when he dribbled through the entire St. Iohn's team early in the first period. St. lohn's wore
out the Dayites - again there was a very evident lack of depth of material on the C. D. team.
The finale to the season was against St Francis. Again the boys in Green and Gold out-
skated and outplayed an inexperienced team, the final score standing at 8-3. Chester pulled
the "hat-trick" with four goals, and Swisher and Kloppenburg had two apiece to their credit.
In the final period everybody was working hard feeding the puck to Mayer and Schwartz,
but neither of the "sure-shots" could hit the cage.

The outcome of the baseball season this year is at present doubtful. As is the case with
most of the athletic squads this year, the baseball club is heavily beset with losses arising
from last year's graduating class: however, the team has potential power if adequate sup-
port is supplied in various key positions. The infield is strong and presents no problem
with Bob Chapman at third base, Bob Kloppenburg at shortstop, Bill Howland at the
keystone position, and Pete Kuelthau at the initial rack. Unfortunately, the remaining posi-
tions with the exception of Tom Grossman in center field are as yet comparatively weak.
The other two outfield positions may have to be filled by a couple of lower formers, in which
case lack of experience could prove a serious handicap. As for the catching position that
was so excellently handled by Bert Oviatt, the choice lies between Phil Krueger and Nimbo
Enzer. The pitching chores will apparently be handled by a two-man staff consisting of Bob
Sinclair and Bud Woody, although lim Windsor may do some hurling. If some of these prob-
lems can be satisfactorily solved, the team may well be of championship calibre: if not, the
team should still win its share of victories.

What the future holds in store for this year's tennis team is as yet uncertain. Of last
year's better-than-average team only three lettermen are returning, but the prospects are not
so gloomy as they seem, since many of the underclassmen have thus far shown a great deal
of improvement and determination. Capt. Reigh Klann, Rusty von Wening and Dick Crittenden,
each of whom has won at least one letter in previous seasons, are expected to fill the singles'
positions. The doubles' combinations, on the other hand, have not been selected, although
pre-season performances indicate that Bob Sullivan, Chapman Chester, Tom Evinrude, Ierry
Bischoff, and Dan Gute will see their share of action. As usual, the schedule consists of
matches with those schools comprising the Wisconsin Prep Conference in addition to several
non-conference encounters with Lake Forest, Rufus King, and East Division, Not much more
remains to be said, since everything is at this time rather doubtful, but we nevertheless feel
confident that Coach Laird and the team will do their best to make the season a success.

Although track lost several star performers through graduation, it is hoped that seven
lettermen returning from last year's undefeated aggregation will provide the nucleus for
another successful team. Captain Bill Miller is expected to continue his record-breaking per-
formances in the hurdles and pole vault, and he may add the shot and high jump to his list
of events. Swisher and Gesser should repeat as consistent point winners in the dashes and
440: and Frentzel should dominate the 880. Bischoff and Wegmann are counted upon to carry
the main burden in the shot and discus, and Maurie Reuter is the best prospect in the broad
jump. If Iimmy Reuter recovers from his ankle injury, he will give us strength and experience
in the Sprints and relay.
There are many non-lettermen whose early performances give evidence of considerable
promise: Chuck Squier and Heise in the dashes: Bird in the 440: Mellon in the 880: Bud Gross-
man, Paul Meyer, and Krueger in the mile: Seymour and Bury in the hurdles: French, Merker,
and Bach in the weights: and Lown in the hurdles and pole vault. A team composed of seven
lettermen and an unusually strong crop of new prospects should make a creditable show-
ing in its six meet schedule and should make a strong bid to retain its conference cham-
' Track Review
Led by versatile Captain Bill Mil-
ler, Country Day's undefeated track
champions of 1947 made history by
completing the second consecutive
undefeated season and retaining the
Conference track and field title. An
ever-increasing interest in track was
emphasized when fifty boys answered
the first call for track candidates,
and from that group emerged a
point-winning combination which
would be difficult to equal.
The Marquette meet, which C. D.
won 62-51 gave a clue to the squad's
potential caliber. Nine first places,
Miller's 22 points, a 440 record by
Gesser, records in the low hurdles
and pole vault by Miller, and gratify-
ing performances by Merker, P.
Meyer, Lown, S. Swisher, J. Reuter,
and M. Reuter revealed a balance and
depth which surprised even the
The following week St. Francis was
taken in stride 68-45. Notable in this
second victory were the slams in the
440 and 880, Reuter's equalling of
the 100 record, and Miller's record-
breaking shot put toss of 46 feet 5
Against Wayland the Green and
Gold display of power was even more
impressive. In winning 8556 to 2756
C. D. slammed the 100, 200, 880, and
discusg Miller took five first placesg
and Squier, Seymour, Wyse, Gross-
man, Seidel, and Heise were added to
the list of men who could be re-
lied upon to garner vital points. Al-
though whispers of "undefeated"
were frowned upon by superstitious
coaches, the team fairly oozed con-
fidence and determination.,
A mid-week encounter with MUS
proved to be a breather, which re-
sulted in an 81-32 C. D. victory.
Maurie Reuter provided a sparkling
10.2 in the 100 and a broad jump of
20 feet 8 inches to establish two new
school records, and Captain Bill ran
17.2 in the college high hurdles for
a new record in that event.
The team next traveled to Lake
Forest, prepared for some rugged op-
position in a triangular meet with
Lake Forest Academy and MUSg but
the score--C. D. 7916, LFA 35,- and
MUS 22 'ia-proved any misgivings
to be unfounded. Country Day's su-
perior balance complemented the
eighth first places scored by Captain
Miller, Reuter, Frentzel, and Frenchg
and the combination proved unbeat-
Examinations and miserable weath-
er failed to dampen the enthusiasm
of the boys as they prepared for the
Conference meetg and this enthu-
siasm was apparently shared by C. D.
followers, for almost a hundred
Green and Gold rooters were present
at Beaver Dam to witness the final
competition of the year.
In the morning field events Cap-
tain Miller won three firsts in the
high jump, pole vault, and shot put-
establishing new Conference records
in all three. At noon C. D. led the
field with 39 pointsg Wayland had 22
and MUS 14. Miller started the run-
ning events auspiciously with a 15.1
high hurdle performance to break the
Conference and school records. Mau-
rie Reuter, with Jimmy Reuter close
on his heels, broke the Conference
record in the 100 with 10.2. Swisher
and Gesser were forced to be content
with second and third in the 4403 but
Frentzel and P. Meyer ran first and
second in the 880. Maurie Reuter
and Chuck Squier followed with first
and second in the 200, Miller won the
low hurdles, and' Mellon and Wyse
placed fourth and fifth in the mile.
To climax a day of fine performances,
C. D.'s relay quartet-Jimmy Reuter,
Chuck Squier, Steve Swisher, and
Johnny Gesser-sprinted to a new
Conference and school record of
1:36.7 to add 10 points to our score
and to make the final result Country
Day 99, Wayland 5756, and MUS
Captain Bill Miller-with a phe-
nomenal season's total of 140 points
and seven school records-and Mau-
rie Reuter-with 73 points and two
school records-spearheaded Country
Day's successful drive to a second
undefeated season. But an equally
vital part was played by the large
number of veterans and newcomers
who provided the balance necessary
for a consistent winner.

This year's seventh form has received three new members: Fred Miller, Tom Clemens,
and Dave Moore, all of whom have proved a welcome addition to the form.
The Class of 1952 does well scholastically, being led in this respect by the "brain trust",
composed of Elser, Snapper, and Steelman. Mr. Desmond, the seventh form teacher, teaches
English, while Mr. Nowicki teaches social studies, and Mr. Ivins teaches mathematics. In
connection with the English course the class undertook a newspaper project consisting of
making a scrapbook showing how a daily newspaper is put out-showing all the steps
from the reporter going out on his beat to the finished product. The project was capped by
a visit to the Milwaukee Iournal Building.
Besides these regular subjects, there are the other activities such as music, art, and
manual training, taught by Miss Von Rohr, Mr. Nowicki, and Mr. Cooper, respectively.
In sports the seventh form has done a good job. In the annual football series against
Fox Point, the Country Day boys won one and lost one. In the winter the boys' time is
divided between basketball, hockey, tobogganing, and sledding. The basketball series with
Fox Point was called off because of the great blizzard. However, the seventh formers played
a series with the eighth form of the Senior School. They won one game and lost two after
a hard tight.
In preparation for the Student Government activities at the Senior School the seventh
form has meetings every Friday at which they learn the fundamentals of parliamentary
procedure and discuss various problems of school life and discipline.
The class did a fine job during the Community Fund Drive, coming out on top of the
Iunior School. It also did a creditable job in the Red Cross drive.
The class has a fine record in the matter of ribbons. At the time this article is written,
14 out of the 23 boys have their green ribbons, and 5 of those have their gold ribbons.
All told, the class has received a thorough prepaartion for the Senior School, and we
will welcome it next year.

This year's sixth form has shown itself to be a well-rounded group. It was strength-
ened by the addition of two new boys, who happened to be cousins, Harry Kaiser and
The class held up its end scholastically. Mr. Ivins, the class advisor, taught mathema
tics and geography, while Mr. Desmond, the seventh form teacher, taught English. In con-
nection with the English course the class held a Hobby Show, as last years sixth form
did. Each boy wrote an essay about his hobby and read it to the class, and there was a
display case in the corridor to show the hobbies to the other classes.
The sixth formers did a good job in sports. The sixth form football team defeated the
Fox Point team, but the Fox Pointers downed the class's basketball squad in return. A few
of the sixth formers were good enough athletes to make the seventh form, or "A", team
in both basketball and football. In the winter term, besides basketball, the boys played
intramural hockey games and tobogganed.
Besides the regular class subjects, the sixth farmers received instruction in manual
training from "Cal" Cooper, in music from Miss Mary Elizabeth Von Rohr, and in art from
The class was fairly active in participating in Red Cross and Community Fund drives
and in various special fund drives for school. Of the twenty-two members, three have gold
ribbons as this article goes to press, while seven others have their green ribbons. No doubt,
the number will grow toward the end of the year.
All in all, the form is well fitted to proceed to the seventh form grade, where it must
set an example to the rest of the Iunior School.
