NEEN H SCHOOL
MR. LEO SCHUBART
After serving on the Board of Education for nine years, seven of which he was the
president, Mr. Leo Schubart retired from active duty.
Mr. Schubart is not the native of Neenah that many people believe him to be.
He was born in Denmark, but has lived in Neenah since 1905 and is a graduate of
Neenah High School.
Active in Boys' Brigade since 1919, he still serves in an advisory capacity. He
also was a member of the Police and Fire Commission for twenty-four years.
During his nine years on the Board, the Athletic Department was reorganized,
a survey of building needs was made, the plans and specifications for Wilson School
were set up, and Mr. Brien was put in charge of the school maintenance program.
Among other things, Mr. Schubart was always on hand on Commencement Night
to present the diplomas and extend a hearty handshake to each senior after his
long trek across the stage.
For his long period of service and for his genuine interest in the improvement
of the Neenah public schools, we, the students of Neenah High School, dedicate
this 1949 "Rocket."
We're proud of Neenah High School! We're proud of our expansive
athletic field, the field house, the beautiful trees, the lawn, and shrubs
that enhance the beauty of the building. But these are all material
things. Let us turn now to our "friendly facultyi' and the "studious
students," the human element with t which no school can exist.

MR. HAROLD B. MENNES
Superintendent of Scboolx
Our Superintendent of Schools, Mr. H. B. Mennes,
has had a very active year, supervising the erec-
tion of the new Wilson grade school building,
along with all the other routine activities which
keep him very busy. It is the aim of Mr. Mennes
and the Board of Education to have more "ade-
quate service" for Neenah students in the way
of buildings and equipment. With this in mind,
they have made surveys of population trends in
our city, and they have made spot maps of the
number of children in the age groups of one,
two, and three. By doing this, it is possible for
them to estimate and forecast what the schooling
needs will be in future years.
The members of the Board of Education, recog-
nized leaders in the community, are elected by the
citizens of Neenah for terms of three years. On
the first Monday of every month these representa-
tives meet with Mr. Mennes to discuss the many
problems which arise concerning our school
This year has been an extremely busy one for
this group, too, because of the new school build-
ing which is being erected. Each problem which
would arise dealing with this construction had
to be discussed and solved.
It is the board which must give the final "okay"
on all plans concerning the Neenah schools, sug-
gested for their approval by Mr. Mennes.
BOARD OF EDUCATION
Mr. Ridgeway, Mr. Bloom, Mr. Hrubecky, Mr. Epps, Mr. Sund, Mr. Vclte.
Absent: Dr. Quade.
The principal of our high school, Mr. Harley Borgen, is
a very active man. His job is directing the activities of
the students and of the teachers. He is adviser of the
Student Council, thereby meeting with the students to
discuss their problems and listen to their ideas on school
life. With the help of the Council, he selects the assem-
bly programs for the following year. Mr. Borgen de-
cides policies of the school, helps students arrange theii
programs, and is always ready to be of assistance. This
year it has been among his aims to improve the curricu-
lum, which has been done in the commercial depart-
ment, home economics classes, and English classes. Mr.
Borgen is a member of the Research Planning Com-
mittee of the State Secondary School Principals' Asso-
ciation. This spring he attended a meeting of the
reviewing committee of the North Central Association
of Secondary Schools and Colleges at Chicago. These are
a few of the many things that the man at the "head"
has been doing for Neenah High School.
Mr. George Christoph, who acts as Dean of Boys in
Neenah High School, has a very big job checking at-
tendance, issuing make-up cards, excuses, and permits
to all the boys.
Under the direction of Mr. Christoph, the hall
monitors must check to see if bikes are parked in the
racks and if cars are parked in the correct places. This
year hall monitors have been checking to see if students'
lockers are locked.
In addition to this, he teaches three general science
classes. Mr. Christoph deserves a great deal of credit
for his understanding work with the boys of Neenah
High School as well as for his line work with the hall
Miss Margaret Griffiths, who is our Dean of Girls,
is of great help to the girls in Neenah High School.
She not only checks absences, gives make-up cards,
excuses, and permits, but offers excellent advice and help
where it is needed. Miss Griffiths holds conferences with
each girl individually, doing her best for better adjust-
ment in high school. This year Miss Griffiths has tried
to call at the homes of all freshman irls, so that eventu-
ally she will have made contaclp sonally with all the
parents. The Girls'

is also a senior counselor in cooperation with the guid-
Mr. Floyd Cummings is the Guidance Director in
Neenah High School. He talks with the students about
their problems of social, educational, and vocational
nature, and gives tests to determine intelligence, abilities,
preferences, and aptitudes. This is for the purpose of
enabling students to be better adjusted and to find a
future vocation for which they are best suited. The
seniors are given special attention along this line al-
though vocational guidance is started with the freshmen.
Mr. Cummings can also offer advice on iobs and help
students End them. He spends much time talking to
various community groups about his program of guid-
ance in Neenah High School. He attended a meeting of
the National Association of Guidance Directors in Chi-
cago. The Psychometry Club, a group of girls organized
for the purpose of assisting with tests and doing clerical
ganization headed by

Senate, she sponsors
tact with the
work for the guidance department, is under his super-
vision. He is the co-ordinator of all the guidance activ-
ities of all the members of the faculty who are counselors.

We thought the class of '48 was largeg however, we
surpassed it and came to be the largest freshman class
to traverse the halls of dear old Neenah High School.
Appreciating this fact, we elected very capable class
ofhcers. For president we elected John Neubauer. David
Martin, Peggy Blank, and Verlyn Thomack were elected
vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, respectively. It
was also at this time that we elected Mr. Leaman to be
our class adviser.
We were extremely immature, inexperienced and
naive, but it wasn't long before the school began to
depend upon us for our ideas and opinions. At last we
had become orientated in the intricate life of Neenah
After a well-rounded freshman year, we returned in
the fall, eagerly anticipating the majesty of our sopho-
more year. During our second year at Neenah High
School, we elected Frank Meyer, presidentg Thad Epps,
vice-president, Joan Hagen, secretary, and Verlyn
Thomack, treasurer. We not only proved ourselves to
be able athletes but able geniuses as well. We likewise
proved our ingenuity when we sponsored the sophomore
dance on February 15, for it turned out to be one of the
highlights of the year. It was also in our sophomore
year that we became well-known for the laurels heaped
upon us on Awards Day.
When we came back in the fall for our junior year,
we exhibited our new-found poise and became more
stabilized academically as well as athletically. Almost
immediately we began making plans for the prom. To
carry out these plans we elected Richard Olson as our
president, with Howard Palmer, Gloria Philippi, and
Jean Zaumeyer completing the slate as vice-president,
secretary, and treasurer, respectively. We then settled
down to really working on the prom. To direct these
activities we chose Kurt Gross to head the planning

committee, with Patricia Ryan, jane Aldinger, and joan
Hagen directing the orchestra and decorations com-
mittees. Gloria Phillipi, Kirk Lawson, Eva Mae Mueller.
Karlene Sawyer and Patricia Zenisek were chairmen of
the chaperones, invitations, publicity, refreshment, and
ticket committees, respectively. We always felt that the
committees worked to capacity, for we had a wonderful
prom. We danced in a paradise known as a "Night in
Dreamland." We know that those who attended the
prom will never forget the grand march and especially
By the end of our junior year, we had developed a
large group of capable leaders so that when we came
back in the fall, we were prepared to meet the many
problems of our senior year. After the election returns
came in, we found that Kirk Lawson had been elected
presidentg Earl Page, vice-president, Lorraine Rohde
secretaryg and Nancy Thorson, treasurer. School had
barely begun when we realized it was time to start
preparing for graduation. The numerous commencement
committees started to function. We were measured for
caps and gowns, and in almost no time we found our-
selves preparing for graduation pictures, as well as or-
dering our cards and announcements. By the time prom
night arrived, which was May seventh, we began to
fully realize that our school days were soon to be over.
On the whole, we were quite proud of the many
things our class had done for our school, such as the
two representatives we had on the state debate team,
Charles Diestler and Kirk Lawson. We were also very
proud of the fellows who played on our Northeastern
Wisconsin championship basketball team, not to men-
tion the many seniors who helped make Neenah High
School's numerous clubs successful.
On May twelfth, the much-awaited "career
day" arrived, a day on which we all received
inspiration and information regarding the fu-
ture. Our guest speaker, Mr. john Wrage, gave
us some priceless information and valuable
advice about the future, which was reiterated
in the groups that followed later. Then came
the senior banquet, that occasion when all the
seniors gathered together for an evening of
more dignified but genuine pleasure.
On june fifth we donned our caps and
gowns for baccalaureate, that solemn occasion
with the entire class participating in a program
of solemn reverence. It gave us a grand feeling
of "oneness," and then more than ever we
realized that school meant more than just
books, classes, and education. It meant foot-
ball games, dances, clubs, speeches, tourna-
ments, the usefulness of semester exams, the
wild excitement previous to the Neenah-Men-
asha games, and last, but certainly not least,
the prom. It meant that we had finally com-
pleted those preparations for an adult life
upon which we were entering. We had ar-
rived at the cross roads. For some it meant the
completion of one more step of education
before continuing in college. For others it
i meant the end of school days and the entrance
into the "work-a-day" world. But for all of us
it meant the building of friendships which will
always be held dear in the years to come.

Now come the outside activities. Remember the Con-
servation Club party where we nearly froze to death? The
Biology Club hikes and the exhibit? The Candy Ball
where we had such a good time?
How about the Halloween party with its polkas and

At the close of the school year, the thing the students
look forward to most is the "Rocket." This perhaps
gives one of the most accurate pictures of school life
from all angles.
Not all the work put into this publication is known
to the students. They donft realize the many tasks which
have to be done before it is placed in their hands. Our
new "Rocket" adviser is Mr. Charles Shepard. Miss
Meyer is the capable editorial adviser. She has the
immense job of checking and editing every printed word
in the Rocket.
The work of editor was done very efhciently by
Clara Albert. The associate editors were Mary Engel and
Geraldine Hase while other members of the editorial
staff were Natalie DeRoche, Howard Heckner, Merlin
Mulvey, Marilyn Eckstein, Carol Gullickson, Mary
Abendroth, Mary jean Rutter, and Barbara Kuether.
The official "Rocket" work period was fourth hour
in the morning in Mr. Shepard's room. There, the
students could work on whatever had to be done toward
the publishing of the annual.
Unlike the other groups, the business staff finishes its
work early in the year. They gather advertisements from
the local businessmen who cooperate with us in every
way possible, and are a contributing factor in the pub-
lication of the annual. Members of the business staff
are Nancy Thorson, business manager, Margaret Steller.
Nancy Hall, Leila Schmidt, Charleen Brandt, and Mary
All of the pictures in the annual comprising student
life are taken by our own photography staff. Kurt
Gross heads this, assisted by David Martin, Sue Martin,
Carla Sylvander, Dianne Anderson, and Shirley Kruse.
Among the many mysteries concerning the "Rocket,"
the biggest is that of the cover. Only vague hints are
given out as to the colors of it or for the theme of the
book, for the cover usually reflects the theme of the
complete annual. But no matter how great the mystery
we are always assured of wonderful results, for our art
staff is one of the very best. They do an excellent job
of designing the cover and also the small drawings
scattered throughout the book. Members of this group
are Ann Andersen, Leone Ganzer, Richard Cramer.
Patricia Coghlan, Nancy Neller, Doloros Huebner, and
We sincerely hope you enjoy the "Rocket" as much
as we enjoyed publishing it for you.

A surprise issue of the Cub was issued during the first
week of school for the benefit of the freshmen, giving
them information on the extra-curricular activities of
At the Cub mixer, the first big event of the school
year, it has been the custom to initiate some of the
freshmen. The initiations were as follows: joan Tuch-
scherer directed the orchestra, james La Fond recited
a serious poemg Clyde Douglas had to sit on the dunce
stoolg a group of freshman girls were asked to wear
football helmets all evening and those caught without
them were made to sweep a portion of the floor with
The Cub sponsored a design contest for the purpose of
getting a new insignia. Mr. Borgen, Mr. Poellinger and
Kenneth Foster were the judges and they liked the de-
signs of Richard Cramer and Richard jelinski so well
that they combined the two designs and divided the
award of five dollars between the two winners.
At Christmas time, with holly wreaths and pine
houghs and a gaily decorated Christmas tree furnishing
the atmosphere, the Cub staff officially ushered in the
Christmas season. This is an annual affair, the party
being held in the cafeteria on December 14. A good time
was had by all as the group played party games includ-
ing charades and several novel relays. Entertainment
was furnished by the members of the staff also. A
clarinet quartette presented a medley of Christmas
Carols. Other members of the staff presented skits and
stunts, but the highlight of the party was the exchanging
of humorous gifts. Light refreshments of ice cream and
cake were served.
On April 1, the Cub published a typical fool's paper
full of foolishness and printed on gaudy pink paper.
At the annual spring party the ofhcers for the next
year are revealed. They are chosen by the advisers,
Miss Lila Andrew and Mr. Al Poellinger.

Discovering the literary abilities of Neenah High School
students was the purpose of the "Rocket Echoes" staff.
They selected the best short stories, essays, picturesque
speech, poems, editorials, and black-and-white sketches
that were written and drawn by the students.
This year's publication, as in previous years, contained
contributions from all the students whereas last year
the book contained only articles written by seniors. An
art section was introduced as a new feature this year.
There were full-page illustrations selected from entries
during a contest at the end of the first semester. The
"Rocket Echoes" staff has expressed the hope that this
art section will become a permanent feature of this
booklet as an incentive for more creative drawing as
well as writing.
Much credit goes to Miss Peterson who guided the
staff and helped them select the best articles and sketches.
After Miss Peterson and the staff finished, the book went
to Mr. Poellinger and the printing staff, who did a fine
job getting the book ready to present to the students.
Honors go to Gloria Philippi for her cover design.
"Rocket Echoes" contained a number of articles, in-
cluding contributions as varied as Christmas poems to
the last word about life at Camp Onaway!
By publication of their literary efforts, recognition
was given to the following: Jane Aldinger, Donald
Ayers, Richard Baer, Gretchen Beglinger, Peggy Ann
Blank, Marigen Braun, Jacqueline Brooks, Germaine
DeKeyser, Charles Diestler, Jeanne Fandrey, Joan Ha-
gen, Kurt Hagen, John Hahn, Lester Johnson, David
Kent. Charlotte Larson. Carol Meartz. Nancy Neller,
Junior O'Neil, James Owen, Gloria Philippi, Kathryn
E. Schultz, James Smith, Charles Stroemer, Robert
Thomack, and Jean Zaumeyer.

Every girl is automatically a member of the Girls,
Senate when she enters school. Because of the difliculty
of the entire group meeting, five girls are elected to
represent each class at board meetings. This term, be-
cause of a tie, the sophomore class was represented by
The board elected the following officers: president,
Kathryn E. Schultzg vice-president, Peggy Blank, secre-
tary, Nancy Dieckhoffg treasurer, Katherine C. Schultz.
The girls on the board are divided into the following
committees: the Sunshine Committee whose chairman
is Billie Throne, the Activity Committee with co-chair-
men Nancy Dieckhoif and Peggy Blankg the Getting-
New-Students-Acquainted Committee whose chairman
is joan Hagen, the Scrapbook Committee with Donna
Schabo as chairmang and a Sellers Committee.
Under the able direction of their adviser, Miss
Griiiiths, the Girls, Senate has done many things. Early
in the year a "pot-luck" supper was held for the board
members. Later in the year, the freshman girls had a
tea for their mothers while still later on the sophomore
girls also entertained at a tea for their mothers. The
juniors entertained their mothers on "junior Night"
with a style show and refreshments. The senior girls gave
a dinner party for their mothers on St. Patrick's Day.
A "Big and Little Sister" party was held for girls
acting as big sisters to the freshman girls. The "big
sisters" helped their "little sisters" get acquainted, and
many of them displayed their talents by dancing, sing-
ing or doing skits.
The Girls' Senate's main event of the year was their
dance, the "Candy Ball." Red and white streamers
formed a false ceiling, with paper peppermint sticks and
cotton candy at the main entrance. There was a candy
shop with peppermint sticks around it, and the walls
were covered with paper gingerbread men, candy canes,
lolly-pops, gumdrops and lemon drops. The king,
elected at the dance, was Roy Petersen who chose
Patricia Getschow as his queen. The "gingerbread"
dance prize was won by Al Leveranceg the "lucky candy
bar" was won by Glen Klemang and Janice Handy won
the door prize. Kenneth Foster was master of cere-
monies. james Retson's orchestra from Lawrence Col-
lege played for the dance.

meets each week during a different period.
The Student Council has been responsible for many
projects during the year. One of these was a very suc-
cessful tea given for the faculty just before Christmas.
Council members were responsible for the collection
of the "Rocket" subscriptions and for their distribution
at the end of the year. The Red Cross drive was taken
over by the Council, as was the filling of Red Cross
boxes. Each home room filled as many boxes as it could,
the total being 84 boxes.
As you noticed at Christmas, the halls and front entry
of the school were colorfully decorated. This was an-
other project of the Council members. They did this
during their free time and had fun doing it.
One of the most popular drives during the year is
that for the senior scholarship. The Council sponsors at
Tag Day when every one is given the opportunity to
contribute toward the scholarship fund which helps a
deserving senior finance his college expenses. Any stu-
dent in the upper third of the class who really needs it
is eligible. The Council makes the decision, but it is
subject to a final check by a faculty committee.
The Student Council was also instrumental in the
formation of the Teen-Age Advisory Board. This group
was formed with the idea of getting more and better
recreation for students. Our assembly programs have
been very ably announced by members of the Council
As in previous years, the Council has sent delegates
to the Wisconsin High School Student Council Associa-
tion convention. This year our representatives were

When the call came in December for contestants for the
forensic contests this year, many Neenah High School
students responded. After the contestants had practiced
and had been coached, an elimination all-school contest
was held in january, and the following students were
selected to continue: extemporaneous reading, Carol
Buchanan, Marigen Braun, Gloria Mortensen, Nancy
Neller, Mary Remmel, Donna Lange, and Rosalie Olson,
serious declamation, joan Hagen, Ruth Pedersen, Gloria
Philippi, Leone Ganzer, and Peggy Blank, humorous
declamation, Audrey Blank and Kathryn E. Schultz:
extemporaneous speaking, Geraldine Hase, Howard
Heckner and Robert Jung, and oratory, Charles Diestler.
In the latter part of February, another all-school
conference was held and the following participants still
continued: extemporaneous reading, Carol Buchanan,
Marigen Braun, Gloria Mortensen and Nancy Neller:
serious declamation, joan Hagen, Ruth Pedersen, and
Gloria Philippig humorous declamation, Audrey Blankg
extemporaneous speaking, Geraldine Hase, Howard
Heckner and Robert jungg and oratory, Charles Diestler.
At Appleton, Kaukauna, and Menasha, there were
league and conference contests at which all the Neenah
High School contestants were finally eliminated except
Audrey Blank, who gave a humorous declamation, and
Howard Heckner, who was in extemporaneous speak-
ing. These two represented Neenah High School at the
State Forensics Tournament. Accompanied by Miss
Paulson and Miss Hughes, they went to Madison where
Audrey Blank received an "A" rating and Howard
Heckner received a "B" rating.
Several of the Neenah High School teachers gave their
valuable time to coach the students who were partici-
pating. These teachers included Miss Helen Hughes, who
coached extemporaneous speaking, Miss Edna Mae
Harris, who coached extemporaneous readingg Miss
Helene Peterson, who helped with declamationsg Miss
Edith Broetzman, who coached declamationsg Mr. Robert
Stouffer, who had oratory as his coaching assignment,
Mr. Kenneth Poulton, who helped with extemporaneous
reading, and Miss Helen Paulson, who coached declama-
tions and was chairman of all Neenah High School
Forensics really play an important part in Neenah
High School activities for they teach the students to
have more poise and assurance when speaking before
a group. The forensic students are deeply grateful for
the time and effort their coaches spent with them, for
without their aid and guidance, it would not have been
possible for the students to advance as far as they did.

Early in September, the senior band started practicing
marching maneuvers to do on parade. The band per-
formed at home football games as well as at Clintonville
and Menasha. This year the band marched in new
uniforms identical to the ones bought in 1937. Now the
hand can completely uniform 115 members.
When the football season ended, the band settled
down for its concert season. The first activity was pro-
viding the music for Miss Paulson's fall play. The next
appearance was made at the Christmas concert given for
the students at an assembly December 21.
After Christmas, the band started work on its mid-
winter concert. Both the Kimberly Junior High School
band, with fifty-five members, and the Neenah High
School senior band, with ninety members, participated
in this annual event. The junior band did not participate
because they were working on band fundamentals and
toward promotion to the senior band. Mrs. H. K. Stuart
and the Kiwanis Club were instrumental in starting
the lirst band in Neenah twenty years ago and this
concert marked the twentieth anniversary of the band.
Some members of the first Neenah band live in Neenah
and can frequently be seen at concerts and at other activ-
ities of the band. Many instruments have been added
and others replaced since the first band was organized.
The alto and bass clarinets have been added while the
mellophone has been replaced by the French horn:
some of the metal clarinets have been replaced by wood
clarinets, and the trumpets have been replaced by
For the evening performance of Miss Broetzman's
spring play, "A Date With Judy," a selected group of
band members played a medley of teen-age melodies
appropriate for the theme of the play.
After the mid-winter concert, the band worked on
music for the annual tournament which was held at
Appleton High School. Many students played solos or
were in ensembles while the senior band played in
concert in class A.
Another successful year can be credited to the band
through the untiring efforts of their talented and patient
director, Mr. Lester Mais.

izations in school is the Conservation Club with 220
members. The following officers were elected to be
responsible for the club activities: president, Karl Saw-
yerg vice-president, Patricia Zenisekg secretary, Jane
Aldingerg treasurer, Alice Wedewart. There is also an
assistant treasurer, Richard Kresse, and assistant secre-
tary, Gloria Philippi. The board members are Richard
Cramer, Fred Gerhardt, Ronald Kuchenbecker, Sarah
Muttart, and Karlene Sawyer.
Members of the club elect the board
members to control the activities because of
the difficulty of the entire club convening
at one time.
The members get credit for hours of
participation in activities of the club. This
year each member got fifteen points as a
starter to encourage them to participate in
more activities. Seventy-five per cent or 165
of the members are in the "A" or "B" group.
The "A" group includes people having
credit of at least l20 hours, and the "B"
group includes those having credit of at
least sixty hours.
There is the rabbit-trapping group. who traps rabbits
and takes them to the rural areas so they can not do as
much damage to trees and bushes in the city. The person
who trapped the most rabbits received special recogni-
tion. This year Audrey Blank trapped the most, eleven
rabbits, and this year is the First year that a girl has won
this recognition. Altogether seventy-four rabbits were
trapped. The club's other groups include the horse-back
riding, bird feeding, tree-planting, photography, seashell,
scrapbook, art, archery, selling, and public school speak-

The horse-back riding group enjoys many rides with
other members of the group. The bird feeding group
places bird feeders in the general vicinity of the school
and keeps them filled for the birds, especially during the
winter season. The tree planting group procures trees
to plant around their homes or other places where they
might be desirable, but because of a shortage this year
there were few trees to be planted. The scrap-book
group keeps a scrapbook of pictures or stories of the
club's activities while the art group makes posters for
the club. The public-school speaking group gives talks
to the public school children on conservation subjects.
This year the subject was on pets. Sea
shells are collected and named bY the
people in the sea shell group. The archery
group had many archery matches this
year, and the group has had Rod Harmin,
an "ex GI" who does exhibition shooting,
to help them.
This year the officers and board mem-
bers received small gold pins as tokens
for their time and effort spent in helping
the club. Being a very active and aggres-
sive group, the Conservation Club had
stationery printed with its name, motto, oihcers, board
members, and its adviseris name.
Some people join the club but never do any of the
club's activities, but most of the members have lived up
to the clubis motto, "Be a good sport and you will be
known as such."
Under the capable leadership of its adviser, Mr.
Armin Gerhardt, the Conservation Club has a full and
varied program which has general appeal to students
with a variety of interests and who otherwise might
not be included in any other group. The Conservation
Club is certainly to be commended for this achievement.

The club had several money-making projects this
year to earn money for their treasury. The sale of "hot-
dogs" after school on several occasions proved to be
very popular as well as profitable.
At an assembly program for all the girls on May 26,
they presented a fashion show. For this program there
was a total of one hundred and thirty models, all of
whom were members of the home economics classes
who displayed the clothing which they had made in
their sewing classes.
The models displayed night wear, including pajamas,
robes, and housecoats. Carrying tennis rackets, roller-
skates, and other sports equipment, they created a very
pleasing picture with their beach wear and sports clothes
as they were modelled along with cotton skirts, blouses,
and slacks. As the girls modelled date dresses, school
dresses, tailored dresses and suits, they wore hats and
carried purses and gloves showing the general effective-
ness of a complete costume.
The stage was attractively arranged for the appear-
ance of the models with potted palms and bouquets of
fiowers adding to the general setting. With appropriate
music as the girls entered, they stepped upon a green
carpeted, elevated platform where they modelled their
original creations" and then walked off stage followed
by a hearty round of applause.
Each year the Biology Club has been enlarging its
membership. This year there is a membership of seventy-
five, fifteen more than last year. Along with the enlarg-
ing of the club, its activities have increased too.
The club year started with the annual fall hike to
Nelson's Woods. Election of officers was held in the
fall also. Ronald Basken was chosen president, and
joan Smith, vice-president. The ofiice of secretary was
held by Eva Mueller and Sherrell Mallang jerry Chris-
toph was treasurer. In addition, there is a board of
directors as a steering committee, composed of Robert
Ebert, jack Neubauer, Nancy Olski, Richard Kresse and
Billie Throne. Mr. John Gundlach, biology instructor, is
the faculty adviser of the club.
Members participated in many varied and interesting
activities such as taxidermy, something new and different
at Neenah High School. They started first with sparrows,
then pigeons, and later to more complicated forms of
animals. Bird study, wild flower study, tree study, and
insect study and general experiments, are also new this
year. Other activities are tropical fish raising, micro-
scopic study, and the green-house project.
Social life in the Biology Club consists of the fall hike
and a "hot dog" roast at Nelson's Woods, the annual
Christmas party, where it has become the custom to see
how many "black cows" one can consume without be-
coming green in the face, and at which there is an
exchange of gifts and games are played relative to
biology. Last but not least, is the spring hike to River-
side Park, where the annual baseball game is played.

to those of other clubs. The idea was designed to keep
the students active in the various activities. Not that
the members ease up on the job, but some do lose
interest occasionally, and when they have something to

A pep club is an asset to any school, but when we have
such a splendid group, such as we have in Neenah High
School, we certainly can be proud. This is especially
true considering the numerous obstacles they were
forced to overcome in an effort to keep an adviser.
In fact it was quite a while after Mr. Thom left that
the club had to run without any adviser. Finally Mr.
Stouffer came to the rescue.
The officers and members likewise did a fine job in
keeping this all important club operating. As chief
executive, they chose Tom Thomsen, and their vice-
president was David Kent. Nancy Olski and Carla
Sylvander were secretary and treasurer, respectively.
Doing an excellent job as boys' chairman was Howard
Palmer. The girls' chairman was Nancy Dieckhoff who
likewise did a Fine job.
assembly. This year Mrs. Gundlach and Mrs. Martin
presented a short skit expressing the "Mom's" view-
point on football. As their names were called, the boys
pinned roses on their mothers. Each year the fathers of
the team members have a special day, so now the Club
has instituted a method of honoring the mothers.
However, merely sponsoring a "Mom,s Day" and a
vaudeville show were not the only items of importance
accomplished by the club. They also sponsored our
annual pep parade. It is the duty of the club to arrange
for the burning of the "M," the positions of the numer-
ous floats, and to award prizes to the lucky entries. The
club also takes care of bus arrangements for out-of-town
games, arranges for "Mom's" and "Dad's" day, and last
but certainly not least, plans for the weekly pep assem-
blies. These call for ingenuity and hard work. We

We are indebted to the club for establishing two
grand institutions, the first being that of the vaudeville
show. It was started in the 1948 school year, and it
proved to be one of the highlights of the year. So again
this year we repeated the performance. Extraordinary
talent was displayed, and a good time was had by all.
Their second institution was "Mom's Day." On this
occasion, the mothers of the football team members
were secretly brought to school to participate in this

the assemblies aren't peppy enough, but who, then,
except we of the student body can make them more

cheer. How are they going to know if they can be
sure of our support except by examples of our faith and
enthusiasm? So next year when football season comes,
let's come prepared, prepared to show the team and
the Pep Club how much we appreciate their efforts.

The president of the Thespians for this year was Howard
Heckner. The secretary and treasurer were Kathryn E. Schultz
and Joan Hagen, respectively. To become a Thespian, you
must take an active part in dramatic activities or in committee
work. At an initiation held in December, Leone Ganzer,
Joanne Lobb, Junior O'Neil, Katherine Frazee, James Lewan-
dowski, and Caryl Laflin became new members of the
Thespians. Another initiation was held for the following stu-
dents who became Thespians following the spring play:
Jacqueline Brooks, Thad Epps, Nancy Neller, Gloria Philippi,
Allen Nollan, Carol Sorensen, Sally Springer.
The fall production, "Anne of Green Gablesf' directed by
Miss Paulson, was the story of an orphan girl, Anne, played
by Peggy Ann Blank, who got into many adventures due to
her vivid imagination. The supporting cast included Natalie
DeRoche, Carole Ammerman, Leone Ganzer. Joan Hagen,
Mary Engel, Sally Madsen, Junior O'Neil, Katherine Frazee.
Robert Ebert, Audrey Blank, Robert Lund, Mary Abel, and
Dallas Anderson. The prompter for the play was Dianne
Anderson. This play, a decided success, brought back mem-
ories to many people who had read the book. The cast did a
fine job as did the committees behind the scenes.
Miss Broetzman directed the spring play, "A Date With
Judy." Judy, a well-known teenager, was played by Sally
Springer. Other well-known characters were Mr. Foster, the
patient father, played by Thad Eppsg Mrs. Foster, the under-
standing mother. played by Nancy Nellerg Randolph, the
precocious little brother. played by Allen Nollan, and "Oogie"
the boy friend, played by Patrick Murphy. Other members of
the cast were Jane Loehning, Patricia Ryan, Jacqueline Brooks,

for this play was Carol Sorensen. The play was very successful

Resolved: that the United Nations should now be
revised into a federal world government was the
debate issue for this year, and certainly an appro-
priate topic because of its timely importance.
Our "A" squad did an excellent job this year, for
they were the first team in three years to have the
honor of participating in the state tournament at
Madison. They made a fine start by taking first place
at the Northeastern Conference Debate Tournament
at Kaukauna. Taking a step farther, they won
first place at the district meeting in Appleton. Ad-
vancing to the sectional meeting they won second
place, thus winning the right to participate in the
state meet, truly the goal of every debater. At the
beginning of the year, which incidentally is August
for some schools, one hundred-twenty-five Wisconsin
high schools worked on debate, and of all of these
schools only eighteen were chosen to go to Madison.
After a hectic day in Madison, the judges finally
turned in the decisions, giving our team a fine
record. We certainly can be proud of our "A" debate
team. This "A" team consisted of Howard Heckner
and Robert Jung, the first and second afiirmative
speakers respectively, with Charles Diestler and Kirk
Lawson, first and second negative speakers.
Our "B" team likewise did a fine job when they,
too, won the title for the Northeastern Wisconsin
"B" debaters. This is the team whom we hope will
win first place at Madison in the future. This team
consists of Dorothy Heckner, Donald Cowling and
Doloros Huebner afiirmative, and james Lewandow-
ski and Warner Wilton negative.
Of course a debate team, no matter how good,
would be impossible without a coach. Our debate
coach, Miss Hughes, spent many Saturdays and Sun-
days literally buried beneath newspapers in an effort
to help the team find material. No wonder our de-
baters did so well with someone as inspirational as
Miss Hughes to guide them.

The 1948 varsity gridiron players participated in a
total of seven games including non-conference play this
year. They won three of these and lost four.
Under Coach Paff, the team started practicing August
28, one week before school started. Their first game
was a decisive victory as they defeated Wisconsin State
High 19 to O. The victory was in a non-conference game.
In another non-conference game held at Two Rivers,
Neenah lost to the Purple Raiders' team by a margin
of 45 to 32.
Conference play started with a game at Shawano
which the Neenah Rockets dropped to the tune of a
Z0 to 0 defeat. Next Kaukauna traveled to Neenah and
overcame the Rockets I9 to 0. Neenah visited the
Clintonville Truckers and suffered a case of I9 to 0
The Northeastern Wisconsin conference picture
brightened when Neenah took a thrilling, hard-fought
game from the New London Bulldogs. The final score
rested at I5 to I2 in favor of Neenah. The final confer-
ence game with Menasha was a walk-away for Neenah.
This most important game of the year wound up with a
final score of 7 for Menasha to 52 on Neenah's side of
Neenahis Rockets captured fourth place in the North-
eastern Wisconsin conference by merit of their victories
over New London and Menasha. In conference play
the team had two victories and three defeats. In non-
conference play they won one and lost one.
The honorary co-captains of the team were Bruce
Berg and Robert Thomack.
The end of the season was highlighted by the football
banquet held at St. Patrick's School in November.
The team worked hard for their school this year and
won the admiration and backing of
the student body. Much credit should
go to the coach, Mr. Paff, the team,
and its backers for the fine season and
cooperation which was evident.
Many of the members of the team
will be back again next year, and we
are looking forward to seeing more
of them. The senior members of the
squad did an excellent job on the
gridiron this year and well deserve
our recognition for their efforts.

This was a very exciting and successful season for the
Neenah varsity basketball team. Coach Ole Jorgensen
led the Rockets to their tenth Northeastern conference
championship in the twenty-two year history of the
loop. Verlyn Thomack and Neil Christofferson, both
seniors, captained the Rockets to their championship.
Neenah took its opening tilt from Ripon in an over-
time 35-26. In the next game, Oshkosh defeated us
with 56 points for us, and 44 for the Oshkosh team.
Two Rivers fell in defeat as Neenah beat them with
the score 38 to 35. In other non-conference tilts through-
out the season, Neenah was defeated by Appleton 28
to 47, by Two Rivers 39 to 44, and by Shorewood
57 to 45.
When the Northeastern conference play began, Nee-
nah defeated the New London Bulldog team 41 to 30.

rival, Menasha, by the score of 58 to 55. The Kaukauna
Galloping Ghosts fell victims to the mighty Neenah
"five" by the score of 48 to 58. The Shawano Indians
were driven out of their first place tie with Neenah
when the Rockets defeated them 55 to 43 in the Neenah
gym. The next week, the Rockets downed the Clinton-
ville Truckers 55 t0 39, to end the first round of confer-
ence play. Beginning the second round, Neenah humbled
the New London Bulldogs 53 to 54. Menasha, in a
closely contested match, was edged out by the Rockets
52 to 31. This win put Neenah's conference record at
seven wins and no losses that far. Kaukauna then put
an end to Neenah's hope for an undefeated season by
tripping our Rockets by a score of 43 to Neenahis 41.
This was really a heartbreaker for the Neenah boys.
The next week, however, the Rockets resumed their
winning ways and downed the strong Shawano team by
the score of 43 to 40. This put Neenah in undisputed
first place. In the final conference game, Neenah crushed
the Clintonville Truckers, 52 to 54, to take undisputed
possession of the Northeastern conference basketball
crown with a record of nine wins and one loss.
Neenah entered the regional tournament at Menasha
and began by defeating the Omro entry by the score
63 to 57. Menasha was then defeated by Neenah for
the third time this season, 41 to 33, and then Neenah
went on to play Kimberly. The tall and speedy Kimberly
boys outclassed Neenah, but barely edged us out 45 to
40 in the final minutes of play. Kimberly went on to
win the regional tournament and the sectional tourna-
ment to qualify for state. At Madison, they took fourth

Menasha "B" team down, defeating them with the score
40 to 28. Resuming their winning streak, the reserves
crushed Kaukauna, who beat them earlier in the season,
44 to 24. Shorewood fell before our boys, losing 31 to
35. Revenge was sweet for Neenah as they put down
the Shawano reserves, who had beaten them at their
previous meeting. The score was 32 points for Neenah
and 24 for the Shawano team. Winding up their success-
ful season, they clinched the championship by getting

The 1947-48 tennis team won 15 non-conference matches
losing only 4, besides winning the Northeastern Wis-
consin conference and tying for fifth place at the state
tourney in Madison. A very successful season is evident
in this very impressive record. Under Coach Ivan Wil-
liams, the boys started practicing in the gymnasium in
March. The net team opened their season with 4-5 vic-
tory over a strong Manitowoc squad. This match was
decided by the final doubles match which was played in
near darkness. The squad followed this victory by sweep-
ing over Two Rivers 7-0. Reserves were used in this
match but all the Neenah players won easily.
The Rockets continued their winning ways as they
traveled to Shawano and came home with a 6-1 verdict.
Then they played host to Appleton and won by a 4-3
margin. The squad posted a victory over Menasha on
our courts by a 7-0 score and followed it by defea'ing
Wauwatosa, the previous year's state champions, 7-0.
Next they traveled to Fond du Lac and came back wi h
a 7-0 victory.
Later, Coach Williams used a team of reserves which
toppled Kaukauna 7-0 without the loss of a single ret.
'l he varsity then turned back the Lake Geneva squad 5-0.
On May 6th the Rocket netters went to Two Rivers and
gained a repeat victory over the squad. Shortly af er-
ward, the team went to Kaukauna and scored another
victory over the inexperienced Ghosts.
The Rocket tennis team met its first defeat of the
season when they dropped a 6-1 decision to St. Mary's at
Menasha. Most of the matches went into extra games or
sets as the play was close all the way.
Neenah scored its lone victory in the number 5
single's position. With Pat Casperson winning the
single's title and the team of Earl Page and Tom Miller
taking the double's honors, Neenah took the North-
eastern Wisconsin conference championships held in
Neenah on May 15. They amassed a total of 27 points
to 18 for Shawano and Menasha, 14 for Two Rivers and
none for Kaukauna. Verlyn Thomack, the other Neenah
entrant, was defeated in the first round, but he then
went on to take the consolation honors.
In the State Tourney Friday and Saturday May 21st
and 22nd, the squad tied for fifth place. Of the four
boys entered, the double's team of Miller and Page ad-
vanced the farthest as they captured third place honors.
Pat Casperson was defeated in the quarter finals by the
lad that went on to take the single's title. Pat forced
him to go three sets in a very close match. Fred Solomon
played hard but was defeated in the first round.
Neenah turned back the teams of Menasha and
Shawano but was upset by Appleton in post tournament
play. The Rocket net team completed its season with
matches against St. Mary's and Oshkosh which it drop-
The final tally on this impressive record stands at 15
wins to only 4 losses in non-conference play. This ex-
cellent team certainly deserves our sincere congratula-
tions and praise.
A form of recreation for all, no matter how athletically
inclined, or whatever students like to do, is intramurals.
The purpose of this program is not only to provide
recreation for those students who remain at school dur-
ing the noon hour, but also to help everyone develop
into stronger and better individuals. It offers a large
variety of activities throughout the school term, both
indoor and out, and for individual and team competi-
tion. The faculty adviser of this activity is Mr. Ole
The first activity that was started in the early fall

with the juniors and seniors taking honors. Tag foot-

Waldemar Thorson led the two leagues.

son's team and Fredrick Gerhardt's team took the junior
and sophomore honors respectively. The freshmen went
all out to beat the sophomores while the seniors defeated

exciting and close game with the seniors taking the
crown by a narrow two point lead. The score was
twenty-six to twenty-four.
In the basketball free-throw tourney, the senior cham-
pion was Bruce Berg, with james Jacobson, Jack Geiger
and Donald Schultz winning the honors in the junior,

sophomore crown. Daniel Haufe won the junior title,

for the school. This honor went to Bruce Schumacher's
team. B division honors went to Ronald Blohm's
team while C division honors were shared by Merlyn
Lee's and Waldemar Thorson's teams.
