Senior Class History
Four short years ago, as freshman, the class
of 148 began its high school career at Mt.
Horeb. After our royal initiation we seventy-
four freshman felt we were truly students of
what we can now call our Alma Mater. Ber-
nard Trainer and Dick Osthoff went out for
basketball and won their letters. More tried
their luck at forensics, and others were in
senior band. These facts proved to the upper-
classmen that even as freshmen we were not
to be ignored.
The fall of 1945 found us decreased in num-
ber but advanced in dignity and knowledge.
This year Lowell Kiely proved his outstand-
ing ability as a cheerleader and put pep and
spirit into the whole student body. Dora Gross-
en and Trygve Thorson were head waitress
and waiter at the Junior-Senior banquet.
On September 3, 1946 we advanced another
step and sixty nine pupils returned as Juniors.
A three act comedy, ttAccidents Will Happen,"
was given under the capable direction of Miss
Biddick. Many boys took part in football with
Jimmy Murphy having a real place with the
first eleven. We also took quite a part in
basketball and track.
May 17 was the most glorious and elaborate
evening of the entire school year. It was the
evening of the Junior Banquet and Prom. The
theme was itHitch Youire Wagon to a Starfy
and Dan Garsonsi orchestra furnished the
music. Bernard Trainor and Vergeane Collins,
as King and Queen, led the grand march. Un-
der Mr. Winkleris supervision the gym Was
decorated in colored streamers with a mam-
moth star in the center of the false ceiling.
We mave now completed our fourth and
final step in high school life. This year, more
students than ever, won distinction in some
phase of school life.
We presented d320 College Avenue" on
April. 15, under the able assistance of Miss
As we leave good old Mt. Horeb school days
behind and enter into lifest school we remem-
ber the many good times and regret that we
must leave so soon.
These pleasant four years have been filled
with little things we will always remember,
such as: Marvinis never failing to arrive two
minutes late for class, the three Bashful Boys-
Jimmy G, Kenny Z, and Jim F. tbut were they
really bashfuliU, how some of the fellows
were so obliging when it come to getting a
ride up town, the English class the week they
put out the school paper,. and a hundred and
one other things.

Junior Class History
On September 4, 1945, seventy freshie,s en-
tered the portals of Mt. Horeb High with
strained faces and trembling knees, but With
a determination to make good. After the sen-
iors gave an initition party in our honor we
began to settle down a little.
In the fall of 1946 we entered as sophomores,
the most intelligent people in the worldetwe
We were well represented in athletics. In
football Vern Komplin, Wayne Austin, Char-
les Swingen, Ervin Beiri, and Dean Smith
won letters. In basketball Charles Swingen won
his letter. Dean Smith, James Ulrich, and
Charles Swingen received letters in baseball.
Now we are juniors. On October 29 we pres-
ented the play HJUSt Duckeyh under the cap-
able direction of Miss Biddick. James Ulrich
and Donald Arnold won their first letters in
basketball. Wayne Austin led the grand march
at the prom on May lst while Jackie Lynch
acted as toastmaster. Jo Ann Holmes and
Marilyn Holum have become cheerleaders.
We would like to know whye-
it is that Roger Jenson has gotten to be such
a woman hater. Dean Smith has such trouble
with keeping his ttChevie" on the road. Could-
ntt be the cars fault, could it?
Jo Ann Holmes has to chew gum in English.
Bob Peterson never gets more than three
wrong in a history test. Richard Schaller en-
joys working at the Cave. Do you really like
work that well, Dick, or was it the girls?
We hope to make our last year better and
more interesting when we return next year
to fill the place of the class of i48.

Sophomore Class History
In September, 1946, our class, as perplexed
freshmen, enrolled in high school. During the
first few weeks our time was spent running
into the wrong room at the wrong time. Soon
however, we were invited to an mltlation
party given in our honor by the seniors. After
we survived this ordeal we were pronounced
students of Mt. Horeb High School.
When school resumed in 1947, sixty-seven
sophomores, now refined and distinquished,
returned for more education.
Seventeen athletes from our Class turned
out for football with Vance Hermann and
Norris Gammeter winning letters. There were
thirteen boys who tried their luck at basket-
ball in which Rodd Hustad, Vance Hermann,
and Ronnie Einerson won letters. Norris Gam-
meter also won letters in track and baseball
in the spring of l47. Donna Rothmann rep-
resented our class as cheerleader.
Representatives from our class in forensics
were Carol Olson and Daniel Farrell.
Twenty members of our class are musically
inclined. Seventeen of these musicians are in
senior band, and three are in junior band.
We really would like to know what our girls
haven't got that these junior and senior girls
have. Rodd Hustad and Vance Hermann, will
you tell us? Several of our girls seem to think
the junior and senior boys are "just all rightfl
too. The rest of us would like to know how
Betty Badetscher always manages to get those
We also have some champion gum chewers
in our class. Girls, don't your jaws ever get
tired. Boys, you don": get out of it that easy.
Some of you are guilty too.

Freshman Class History
On September 2, 1947, sixty-eight bewilder-
ed freshmen climbed the steps of M.H.H.S.
to begin the first of their four years in these
imposing halls of knowledge.
As most freshmen do on the first day of
school, we made the usual errors of attending
the wrong classes and in general, being in
the wrong places at the wrong times.
But the climax of our troubles this first year
in this well known institution of learning
came on November 19, Initiation Day, when
we got a full years exercising course in Phy.
Ed. on one day. We were told to kneel to the
"sophisticated" seniors and utter in our humbl-
est voice, ttPardon me for living."
The girls certainly had ttthe new look." This
particular ttnew lookh being a flour or burlap
sack over a pair of shorts, long black stock-
ings, a pair of rubbers, a hair style consisting
of numerous pin curls scattered about on their
heads, and wearing no make-up.
The boys may very well have had next
year,s "new look," for they had make-up, a
girls blouse on backwards, gym shorts, long
black stockings, and high-buckle overshoes.
On the evening of the same day we were
ttentertainedt by the seniors, the entertain-
ment consisting of us doing everything from
rolling peanuts with our noses, eating raw
eggs, eating what we were told were angle-
worms, and transporting water by the latest
modern convenienceean eyedropper.
Later, during the second semester, 3. return
party was given by us in honor of the seniors.
The fresmen class was well represented in
extra-curricular activities this year: we had
seven members in Senior band and twenty-
one in chorus. Nineteen of our boys were out
for football, and several tried their luck at
basketball. Vivian Ayen and Marlene Kalsch-
eur made their debuts as cheerleaders. Others
participated in forensics. The class was well
represented in various clubs.
During the next three years, we wonder
Ed Chancellor will make up his mind-A's
Which one will get the most meneVivian
Ayen or Joyce Lewis.
Duane Conant will break his freshman record
for getting detentions.
Elizabeth Schlapback will still prove so
great an attraction for the upper classmen.
And so we leave you until next year when
we hope to return as sophmores.

The Student Council consisted of represent-
atives from home-rooms, clubs, and the pres-
idents of each class. There were 20 members,
and they held weekly meetings.
The Council sponsored social hours after
basketball games, gave suggestions to help
the school, and purchased records for the
juke-box. A few open council meetings were
held, therefore everyone could see what was
being done. This year a handbook was pre-
pared to give general information about
everything in school. On December 15th our
Council members were guests of the Wisconsin
High Student Council where we gained much
knowledge about the work.
Nine issues of the Cardinal Highlights were
put out this year by the staff which was under
the capable guidance of Miss Skaife. The

toward editing the paper. The publishing of
the paper was done by the commerce class
under the direction of Mrs. Baird.
Our aims this year were to improve the
paper and to mention every student at least

killed Lee. J udy, with whom the boy was danc-

to get anywhere with the case, Judy convinces
him to turn the case over to her. Judy uses her

killed Lee when Val is murdered. Now every-
one is frightened. Many interesting incidents

All the scenes were enacted in the living
room in the Maxwell home. Mr. Maxwell has
just been chosen as the new head of the citi-
zens committee, but in the meantime Betty
Lou and Bernadine get an idea and write a
letter to Vester Blayne, editor of the love-lorn
column. Instead of answering their letter in
the paper, Miss Blayne comes to the house
to talk it over with Mrs. Maxwell. The situa-
tion becomes quite "tangled upt When Mr.
Moore and Mr. Marshall come for an inter-
view with Mr. Maxwell. Everything is finally
straightened out in the end.

The first official football practice was held
the week before school started. Of the 90
boys who reported to Coach Steensrud, 10
were returning lettermen; namely, Lloyd Hen-
derson, David Albert, Richard Rindy, Charles
Swingen, James Greenwald, Robert Larson,
Harlan Oimoen, Kenneth Zingg, Wayne Aus-
tin, and James Murphy. Every fellow who
reported decided he was going to do his ut-
most to make it a successful season.
Getting into condition, learning how to
block and tackle, and mastering plays was the
main work of the first few weeks. Sports
writers rated Mount Horeb as a "darkhorse"
in the league race, but they were forced to
change their opinions after the Vikings won
four straight games and defeated Darlington,
the team favored to win the championship.
Since lights were installed on the athletic
field this year, all of the home games were
played at night. The first appearance of the
team under the new lights was in a non-
conference game with Stoughton. After a
rough and exciting game, the Vikings of
Mount Horeb had been defeated 19-12.
The following week conference action start-
ed with Mount Horeb playing at Cuba City.
The Vikings returned home victorious by a
margin of 26-6. Four other touchdowns were
scored by Mount Horeb in this game, but each
was nullified by a penalty. By scoring a
touchdown in the fourth quarter, the Vikings
also defeated Boscobel. This time the score
was 7-0. The next week Mount Horeb
trounced Fennimore 18-6 for their first vic-
tory under the lights. This win also made the
team a definite threat for the championship.
The setting for the next game was perfect.
Mount Horeb was scheduled to play Darling-
ton in the Vikings homecoming. Each team
was undefeated in 3 league games, and the
Vikings were out to avenge last years loss
to Darlington, the loss which deprived the
team of the championship. By game time a
crowd of 3,000 people, the largest crowd to
ever witness a football game at Mount Horeb,
was assembled. The crowd, as well as both
teams, was very tense as the game got under
way. Once the battle was started, both teams
settled down and played good, hard football
the rest of the game. The Vikings scored in
the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th periods, with Murphy,
Eckel, and Tollefson scoring the touchdowns.
The final score of 20-0 shows that the Mount
Horeb defense was also very effective.
The game with Lancaster was the roughest
of the season. Mount Horeb became the first
team to cross Lancasteris goal this year, as
they scored a touchdown on the first play of
the game. Lancaster came back strong, how-
ever, and won by a decisive 19-6 score.
In the last home game of the season, Mount
Horeb had to stave off a desperate last half
rally by Platteville. By so doing the Vikings
were once more victorious, this time by a
narrow 20-13 margin. Dodgeville was host to
Mount Horeb for the last game of the season
for both teams. Mount Horeb outplayed
Dodgeville in every phase of the game, but
the Vikings came out on the short end of a
Thus ended a very successful season for a
team which was not expected to win hardly
any games. The seasonis record stands at
five conference wins and two losses, and one
non-con.ference loss. Most of the credit for
this record goes to Coach Steensrud and As-
sistant Coach Westland.

ed Co-Captains by the letter winners of this

Since basketball is a game in which ex-
perience counts a lot, Mt. Horeb was not ex-
pected to win many games this year. Only
6 lettermen, Marvin Zwickey, Lloyd Hender-
son, Henry Eckel, James Fosshage, Charles
Swingen, and Roddy Hustad, were returning,
and only one of these, Marvin Zwickey, was a
regular the year before.
Practice was started the week after foot-
ball was over with about 40 boys reporting.
Everyone worked hard to get into condition
and to get football out of their systems.
The first appearance of Coach Steensrud's
team resulted in a decisive 40-23 victory for
Stoughton. Game number two was also a
non-conference affair. It was with Mazo-
manie, and the Vikings lost their first home
The conference opened with Mt. Horeb play-
ing at Cuba City, and losing 38-21. The
Vikings gained their first victory of the
season at the expense of Boscobel. The final
score, 47-33, showed that the team was start-
ing to work together, and that they were go-
ing to be a tough team to beat. Fennimore
provided the opposition for Mt. Horeb in the
next game, but they also met defeat 39-34.
Mt. Horeb fans were treated with the first
home victory of the season as Darlington went
down to the Viking scorers in the next game
By means of a long underhand shot in the
last five seconds, Jefferson tied the game at
36 all and then went on to defeat Mt. Horeb
40-36 in the overtime in a holiday double-
header at Dodgeville, The next night Fort
Atkinson routed the Vikings 49-28. Then
Verona outscored the Vikings in each of the
four quarters to win 56-26 at Verona. In a
good defensive game, the Vikings outscored
Lancaster 30-23. for their next league victory.
Neither Black Earth or Platteville gave Mt.
Horeb much trouble, as they both went down
to defeat on the Viking court, 45-32 and
40-33. By means of fourth quarter rallies,
Mt. Horeb lost their next two ball games to
Dodgeville and Cuba City. The scores were
39-34 in favor of Dodgeville, and Cuba City
35, Mt. Horeb 31. The next game developed
into an overtime as Mt. Horeb outscored Bos-
cobel 17-5 in the last quarter to tie the ex-
citing game. The Vikings went on to win
47-46. The team had to come from behind
again to Win the next game from Fennimore
in an overtime 38-37. Two more Victories re-
sulted for the Vikings as they licked Darling-
ton 44-38 and Lancaster 42-37. A revised Mt.
Horeb lineup was downed by Platteville on
the Platteville home court in the next game
48-41. In the last game of the regular
season, Mt. Horeb was in the lead until the
last minute. Dodgeville then scored a basket
and went into a 38-37 lead. By stalling out
the remaining time, they gained the victory.
As soon as the weather made it possible to
be outside, about 30 boys reported to Mr.
Wainwright, who was the track coach. The
first weeks were spent in getting into con-
dition and fitting the boys into the event to
which they were best fitted.
The first meet was scheduled to be run at
Mt. Horeb with Stoughton. acting as the in-
vaders. The Vikings of Mt. Horeb were
soundly defeated 99-15. In the second meet,
in which the winner was not decided until the
last two events, Dodgeville emerged the Vic-
tor by a score of 63-50. On May 2, the team
motored to Platteville for the League Meet.
A heavy mist and a cold wind hampered
everyone. Mt. Horeb finished in fourth place
behind Platteville, Dodgeville, and Cuba City,
who finished in, that order. The boys who
scored Mt. Horeb's points were: Henderson,
3rd in 440; Murphy, 1st in 100 yd. dash;
Zwickey, 5th in the mile: Eckel, 2nd in 200
yd. dash; Ulrich, 5th in 200 yd dash; Lavik,
3rd in 100 yd. low hurdles; Albert, 4th in 100
yd. low hurdles; and the relay team placed
third in the one-third mile relay. Edgewood
ran over the Vikings by a score of 97-16 in
the last meet of the season.
The following boys were awarded letters
for scoring over 5 points in these meets:
James Murphy, Melvin Lavik, Henry Eckel,
Lloyd Henderson, Norris Gammeter, Marvin
Zwickey, John Feller, Louis Grossen, Robert
Grinder, Jack Farrell, David Albert, and Al-
Coach Steensrud,s call for baseball candi-
dates was answered by 56 enthusiastic boys.
The boys were aiming at winning the champ-
ionship again, as Mt. Horeb was the only
team that had ever won the championship of
the league. This year was an exception, as
Prairie du Chien defeated Darlington in the
play-off for the championship.
Rain caused postponement of the first
game, which was with Black Earth. Mt.
Horeb had scored 5 runs, and was leading by
a score of 5-0 When rain halted the game.
Scores of the league games are as follows:
