LEO SCHUBART DEDICATION 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." Page Five Page Six 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. .ff-ft""c-P infix W eff aWq SX , i f fyffW'V'fle c sw Y. N' A X ,gs Page Seven EDUCATIONAL 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 system. 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. ,,.fffW' x 'vi Page Eight EXPERTS 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 monitors. 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' MR. HARLEY O. BORGEN Principal mother-and-daughter teas and dinners. Miss Griffiths is also a senior counselor in cooperation with the guid- ance department. 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 her n more friendly con- Senate, she sponsors -Q Miss Griffiths 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. Christoph, Miss Griffiths, Mr. Cummings Page Nine PATIENT JOSEPH BRAUN B.E.

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 High School. 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 CLASS OFFICERS Earl Page, vice-president, Nancy Thorson, treasurerg Kirk Lawson, president, Lorraine Rohde, secretary. 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 "On Wisconsin." 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. i Page Fourteen CLARA ANNE ALBERT "Clare" Band 1, 2, 3, 4: Biology Club 4: Commencement Committee 4: Conservation Club 4: Cub Stal? 4: G.A.A. 1: Home Economics Club 2, 3: Latin Club 2. 3: Library Club 1, 2: Pep Band I, 2, 3, 4: Pep Club 4: Psychometry Club 3, 4: Rocket Staff 1, 2, 3.

I can't possibly mention them all here, but come along and we'll find the rest of them. cf J .lf fn se M e M ' 3 O Page Thirty-seven 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 "ANNUAL" 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 Osborne. 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 Lotus Blank. We sincerely hope you enjoy the "Rocket" as much as we enjoyed publishing it for you.

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 toothbrushes. 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. The officers for the past year included the following: co-editors, Peggy Blank and Kirk Lawson, front page editor, joan Hagen, Kirk Lawson, sports editorg jane Aldinger and joanne Lobb, co-feature editorsg business manager, Leila Schmidtg co-advertising managers, Nat- alie De Roche and joan Smith, Doloros Huebner, copy readerg proofreader, Clara Albert, Patricia Ryan, special feature writerg exchange editors, Duane Kuehl and Sally Madsen, there were fourteen reporters, eight typ- ists, and a mechanical staff of five members. jOVIAL jDURNALISTS Back Rau'-james Lewandowski, Duane Kuehl, Donald Hagman, Kirk Lawson, Howard Heckner, Kendrick johnson.

J. Poellinger Assistants-Kenneth Arndt, Ernest Gauger. Brian Burr, LeRoy Sauer, Edwin Rosenow CREATORS 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.

Page F orly 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 six girls. 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.

CANNY COUNCILORS Our student Council is the democratic reliection of the students' opinion in Neenah High School. The adviser of the group is Mr. H. O. Borgen, principal. President of the Council is Kenneth Foster, vice-president, John Gundlachg treasurer, Bruce Berg, and secretary, Nancy Dieckhoff. Each of the home rooms has one representative, ex- cept the study halls, which have two. Representing them this year are Peggy Blank, John Gundlach, Earl Page, Richard Frakes, Robert Schmidt, Richard Jorgen- sen, Judith Croy, Joan Smith, Beverly Martin, Warner Wilton, George Rasmussen, Kenneth Foster, Tom Kerri- gan, Shirley Swichtenberg, Bruce Berg, Nancy Dieck- hoff, Ann Andersen, Emanuel Woeriier, Mary Engel, Margaret Steller, Leorman Konitzer, Ronald Kuchen- becker, Doloros Huebner, Duane Kuehl. This group 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 this year. As in previous years, the Council has sent delegates to the Wisconsin High School Student Council Associa- tion convention. This year our representatives were Ann Andersen, Kenneth Foster, Nancy Dieckhoff, and Bruce Berg. Page Forty-tu-'o FORENSIC COACHES Back Row-Mr. Poulton, Miss Broetz- man, Mr. Stouffer. First Row-Miss Harris, Miss Peterson, Miss Paulson, Miss Hughes. 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. 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.

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 cornets. 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. MUSICAL Back Rau'-A. Ribble, D. Meyer, D. Horn, D.

CAUTIOUS 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- ing groups. i Puge Iiorly-eight CONSERVATORS in-um1u.na+ '.

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 party was given on December 17, from three-thirty until five o'clock in the sewing room and included twenty children all of whom were eight years of age or younger. As they gathered around a large beautifully decorated Christmas tree, they sang carols, played games, and had delicious re- freshments of hot fudge sundaes and frosted animal days of the month at which they discussed their old cookies which the girls had made. business and made plans for future activities. .

The stockings and mittens were purchased by the club members while the toys were donated by the members. Each year the club finds a great deal of joy and pleasure in giving this Christmas party for these small children. On December 20, the club had a dinner for its mem- bers, served in the home economics room after which they had entertainment, and they also sang Christmas carols. Later in the evening, they journeyed over to Theda Clark Hospital where they sang carols for the patients. 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. Page Fifty-one BUDDING 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.

Page Fifty-two BIOLOGISTS It is traditional to be a place winner among the pep Q parade floats. This year their float received second place, Q ki my with the theme of "cooking Menasha's goose" and mga 1-PM "getting their goat." This year the club has added a point system similar 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 work for, it usually encourages them to work harder and do better work. The upper one third of the club will receive pins at the end of the year for outstanding work.

PEPPY PEPSTERS 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 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 often groan at the jokes or complain because we feel the assemblies aren't peppy enough, but who, then, except we of the student body can make them more peppy? It is up to us to get behind the team and really 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.

AMBITIOUS ACTORS 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, Tom Thomsen, Kathryn E. Schultz, Ollie Mae Salmeen, Gloria Philippi, Curt Borgen and Nancy Llewellyn. The prompter for this play was Carol Sorensen. The play was very successful with full houses for both the matinee and the evening per- formances.

DAUNTLESS DEFENDERS 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. Page Ififly-seven PERSISTENT PSYCHOMETRISTS Back Row-Jean Zaumeyer, Clara Albert.

The bio-chemistry group conducted experiments in vitamin deficiency diets, using white rats and hamsters. Five-tube radio sets were built by members of the radio group, nrst constructing crystal sets and later SCIENTISTS Taking, developing, and printing their own pictures was studied by the photography group. They also learned how to make enlargements, colored photo- graphs, and to make colored slides. Before Christmas holidays, Christmas cards were made by the members, by putting favorite snapshots on cards. There was also a chemical analysis group who experi- mented with compounds, mixtures, and alloys, and later worked on the growing of plants without the use of soil. Members were responsible for the bi-monthly meet- ings at which time they demonstrated the different projects they had been working on. building more complicated sets. Later this group worked on aeronautic experiments. Back Row-Orrin Bredendick, Douglas Kramer, Kurt Gross, George Rasmussen, James Sarafiny, Earl Page, Tom Thomsen, David Martin.

GRIDIRON GLADIATORS 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 defeat. The Northeastern Wisconsin conference picture brightened when Neenah took a thrilling, hard-fought GRIDIRON COACHES 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 the scoreboard. 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. Page Sixty-four 3 ? . 9 "ii ,.

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. The next week saw Neenah nipping their foremost 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 place. All in all, Neenah had a very successful season and deserves the praise of all the Neenah High students for so ably representing them on the basketball court. N. E. W.

The next game brought defeat from Oshkosh. The score was 23 to 30. The following week, however, they retaliated with a win over Two Rivers, 41 to 37. New London went down in front of the Neenah jayvees, losing 24 to 22. Neenah then threshed the Menasha Blue jays, 31 to 21. The Kaukauna Galloping Ghosts defeated Neenah in the following game with a score of 24 to 21. The next week Neenah again whipped the Two Rivers team, winning by a score 31 to 26. Appleton barely edged the Junior Rockets and beat them by the close score 33 to 32. Defeat came again in the next game at the hands of Shawano. The Indians beat our boys 31 to 25. Neenah bounced back from these two defeats to wallop the Clintonville "B" team 54 to 25. Neenah then breezed past the New London Bullpuppies, licking them 37 to 19. The reserves kept on winning as they put the 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 edge over Clintonville, winning 28 to 26. COMING CAGERS Page Sixty-seven Bach Ron'-G. Bahrke, W. Cramer, P.

ROCKET RACQUETEERS 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- ped 4-3. 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. Page Sixty-nine INTERESTED INTRAMURALISTS 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 Jorgensen. The first activity that was started in the early fall was tag football. This year there were two leagues, with the juniors and seniors taking honors. Tag foot- ball evolved into flashball in which Robert Hase and Waldemar Thorson led the two leagues. Next came the fall tennis tournament under the direc- tion of Mr. Ivan Williams. Earl Page defeated Fred Solomon for the single's crown, while Earl Page and Tom Thomsen outpointed Gordon Payne and Fred Solomon to sweep the double's victory. Moving inside, class basketball got under way as winter succeeded fall. The tourney ended with the juniors, sophomores, seniors and freshmen winning in this order. This year basketball was divided into four leagues. Three leagues played after school in our gym while the freshman league played at the Roosevelt gymnasium. Frank Wiesner's team was freshman champs while Gor- don Payne's team took the senior crown. Charles Thomp- 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 the juniors, leaving the freshmen and seniors in the finals. The championship finals turned out to be an 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 and freshman classes respectively. Basketball golf honors went to Gerald Kuchenbecker, senior: James Jacobson, juniorg Fred Solomon, sophomoreg and Donald Metz, freshman. The rapid-fire crowns went to Harold Mentink, Keith Forsythe and Fred Solomon. senior, junior and sophomore winners respectivelyg the freshman title was shared by Peter Thomsen and John Kalfahs. In checkers, the class champions were as follows: Gene Lee, seniorg Harold Miller, juniorg William Gresenz, sophomore, and Melvin Olson, freshman. Har- old Miller defeated Gene Lee in the finals to take the school championship. Page Seventy INTERESTED INTRAMURALISTS In chess, William Wiberg and Warner Wilton advanced to the finals. Lloyd Kleinhenz, Warner Wilton, Robert Jung, and William Wiberg were class champions from freshmen to seniors, respectively. In the shufffeboard tournament, Ronald Hunsicker, Robert Schmidt, Phillip Wilms, and William Wiberg won in the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes respectively. Ronald Hunsicker defeated Robert Schmidt and William Wiberg defeated Phillip Wilms for the preliminary round. In the finals Wiberg topped Hunsicker for the school championship. Champions have been determined in all four classes in the ping pong single's tournament. Richard Jorgen- sen took the frosh event while Fred Solomon took the sophomore crown. Daniel Haufe won the junior title, and Edward Tourtellotte was the finalist in the senior class tournament. Playoff for the all-school champion- ship ended with Jorgensen defeating Solomon, Edward Tourtellotte defeating Daniel Haufe, with Edward Tour- tellotte winning over Jorgensen for the school cham- pionship. The noon hour volleyball tournament drew a large number of boys. There were three divisions, A. B, and C. The winners of A division were also grand champions 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. An activity that was very popular was the noon hour mixed volleyball tournament. The winners of the eight leagues were as follows: Verlyn Thomack-Audrey Blank, John Gundlach-Carita Blankg Donald Hagman- Carol Berensg Michael Drew-Nancy Kressg James Shan- non-Mary Abendroth, Donald Metz-Margaret Stellerg Richard Jorgensen-Patricia Steffeng and Richard Schmidt-Marjorie Thomack.

The activities that were popular in the spring were horseshoe, handball, wrestling, softball, track, archery, and spring tennis. As can readily be seen from this account, the intramural program provides healthful recreation for a large number of students.
