During this timc, our athletic program, under his direction, has grown steadily and has indeed proved very successful. Ever since he began teaching in his home town of Neenah, Coach Iorgensen has placed an emphasis on good sportsmanship and fair play, both determining factors in everyonels life. He has made Neenalfs teams, basketball, football, and track, teams of which we can be proud, this especially being true of basketball, always the sport in which Neenah has excelled. In 1930, Neenah won the state basketball championship. Ten times Neenah has won or tied for first place in the Northeastern Confer- ence. These are only a few examples which prove the success of our athletic program. To show our appreciation to him and to prove we are and have been his loyal supporters during his quarter century of teaching, we, the students of Neenah High School, dedicate to Coach Ole jorgensen this 1951 i'Rocket.', 3 Table of Contents SECTION SECTION SECTION SECTION SECTION SECTION ADMINISTRATION GRADUATES CLASSES ATHLETICS ORGANIZATION ADVERTISING 4 Q' 0 6 ' 5 sv, ,luring 50 'mp lp -., lb ' X - -f -Q , .

RIDGEXVAY June 29, 1950, marked the passing of a loyal friend of Neenah High School and a faith- ful member of the Board of Education. Mr. Merlin L. Ridgeway came to Neenah in 1937 from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to join the staff of the Equitable Reserve Association. A year later he became assistant secretary, and in another year took over the actuarial duties. In April of 1943, Mr. Ridgeway be- came secretary, the position he held until his untimely death. On july 1, 1950, he would have become vice-president, an office to which he had been elected twenty days pre- viously. Mr. Ridgeway, born at Plymouth, Iowa, November 4, 1894, a graduate of Coe College, served in the United States Army in France during VVorld War I. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, Neenah Ro- tary Club, a Thirty-Second Degree Mason, and a member of the Board of Education for six years. Although Mr. Ridgeway was not well known to some Neenah High School students, his influence was felt through his work on the Board of Education, and his loss to the com- munity has been greatly felt by all who knew him. Board of Education MR. MOLZOVV, MR. EPPS, DR. QUADE, MR. SUND, President MR. IIRUBECKY, MR. IIOCIIIIOLZER, M. MORTENSEN Administration 2 is MR. HAROLD B. MENNES Superintendent of Schools MR. BoncEN, Mn. CHRISTOPH, As in the past, Neenah High School has en- joyed the untiring efforts of an able and hard-Working administration. The responsibility of supervising Neenahis entire educational program from the grades through high school falls on the school board and Mr. Mennes, our Superintendent of Schools, who also acts as executive officer of the board. Mr. Borgen, Principal, directs and advises both students and teachers, decides upon general school policies, and advises the Stu- dent Council. This year, he also served as an executive member of the State Secondary School Principals' Association. Checking the attendance of the boys, direct- Miss CRIFFITHS, MR. STONE ing the parking of bikes and cars, and super- vising the hall monitors are the duties of our Dean of Boys, Mr. Christoph. Miss Griffiths has given Neenah High School cause to boast of a distinguished faculty, for she received an invitation to the President's White House Conference on welfare which was held in Washington, D. C., in December, Miss Griffiths has shown through her work as Dean of Girlsi, through her counseling, and as advisor to the Girls' Senate that this dis- tinction is well-deserved. Mr. Stone, a newcomer this year, has capably performed his duties as Guidance Director, advisor to the Psychometry Club, and as freshman football coach.

" rg aw 'Q i Seniors For several years, Neenah High Schooi was gifted with extremely large classes, but in 1948 the class of "51,' arrived, very small in number. XVe made up in ,other Ways what We lacked in number. After the first shock, the Cub Mixer, we really got into the swing of things. To get started, we elected john Cundlach, president, james Shannon, vice-president, Mary Os- borne, secretary, and Carol Berens, treasurer. With these competent officers to lead us, we had a successful first year. We joined the various clubs, the boys went out for sports, and the girls cheered them on. In October, the freshman girls gave a tea for their mothers. It was the first of its kind and started a successful practice. By Christ- mas, we were ready for a vacation to forget our school work and have fun. After Christ- mas, we all enjoyed the CAA "Hawaiian Hol- idayv dance with Tony Winters, orchestra. In April, we had a freshman party. Music was provided by "ray-cordingf, It really pro- vided a good time for everyone who attended. Many members of our class participated in the annual band tournament in Sheboygan in May where they made a good showing as usual. In june we waded through our first final exams, all the while looking forward to a three months' vacation. We were no longer "greenhorns" and would be back the next year to gain the prestige we would need as upperclassmen. In fall, we returned to school to resume the activities started during our ,freshman year. . t QL' r Q, ggi gx ight ix ilgim . 'HI Class Officers Robert Schmidt, President, Melvin Blank, Vice Presideni Melba Steen, Secretary, and Georgian Kopvlas Treasui We started by electing some efficient lead- ers who were William Gresenz, president, Dean Wistoff, vice-president, Mary jean Rut- ter, secretaryg and Charleen Brandt, treasurer. We chose wisely and started out for a good year. That year we began to become more active in the various clubs in school. The boys took over the B-squads in sports while the girls gave their loyal support. After basketball games that year, TABS began sponsoring dances at the 'Reef' These proved very en- joyable and became the meeting place after games. The sophomore girls held a tea for their mothers in December. Some of the girls en- tertained by singing or playing musical in- struments with Christmas music being fea- tured on the program. In April, we held an all-school dance the theme of which was "April Showers." The gym was transformed to an April day. Every- one had a good time and went home think- ing of April showers and May flowers. Mr. Kenneth Beger, Class Advisor Awards Day brought the end of school and an- other vacation. When we left school for our sum- mer vacation, we had begun to show signs of so- phistication. In September we returned to school with the air of sophistication that marked us as upper class- men. We were ready to take our places as leaders in school. When the election returns were counted, we found Richard Kresse as our president, Ronald Lange, vice-president, Shirley Mickelson, secretary, and Donna Bastar, treasurer. VVe looked ahead to an active year when we chose these leaders. To start the season, many of our boys played on the varsity football team. The girls again gave their loyal support by cheering and playing in the band. We were very active in the clubs in school and had some juniors in important oflices. In Oc- tober we ordered our class rings. A good choice was made by the ring committee and everyone was happy. Several junior boys, john Gundlach, Deon Wis- toff, and john Gieger, played regularly on the var- sity basketball team, where they made a good showing. Early in the year we started work on the prom. The committees worked hard and had everything underway early in Ianuary. The theme was a "Mariner's Dream." It pictured an underwater scene with a ceiling of waves. When the day final- ly came, May 6, we danced to the dreamy music of Tom Templeis orchestra. It was really a suc- cess, and everyone had a good time. James Levan- dowski and Olive Salmeen made a charming prom king and queen. Our Iunior class president, Rich- ard Kresse, and his partner, Marjorie Tulis, were the attendants. Awards day came and the end of the school year with it. We saw many juniors go forward to re- ceive honors scholastically and athletically. VVe left school thinking of our vacation and returning in the fall as Seniors for our final year. Considering the importance of the occasion, we elected good leaders for our final year at Neenah High School. Robert Schmidt was elected presi- dent after a vigorous campaign. His running mate, Melvin Blank, was made vice-president. Our sec- retary and treasurer were Georgian Kopvlas and Melba Steen respectively. Our football team, led by Seniors, tied our Blue- jay rivals to end their season happily. Many other Seniors were taking an active part organizing the various clubs in which they took an active lead. Christmas vacation brought fun for all. There were many dances and also some basketball games where our team proved its high caliber. Shortly after Christmas vacation, the G.A.A. held its annual dance. It upheld the tradition of fine C-.A.A. dances. In February, the band gave its winter concert. For many Seniors in the band, it was their final concert showing. A Girls' Senate dance was also held early in F erbuary. Early in March, Senior Career Day was held. This gave many Seniors the inside view on what was coming after graduation. Later in March, the Sen- ior girls had a banquet for their mothers. The next big event of the year was the prom. We danced to the music of jimmy James' Orchestra in the gym decorated to the theme of "Blue Moon." King Bob Schmidt and Queen Larena Behm led the grand march. On May 24, the annual Senior Banquet was held. It was held at the Valley Inn. A few days later many Seniors went forward to receive honors for the last time at Neenah High School. This was for Awards Day. Those much dreaded Senior exams came on May 31 and June 1. The end of school was at last in sight. Baccalaureate was June 3 and graduation was Iune 6. We left school thinking about the many things we did and the things we would remember the rest of our lives. Neenah High School will not long remember us, but we will long remember Neenah High School. sw - ev f, if 4 ee I .Mu 'T 'I Y? ke Q . 32, f I U r A we Q 1 K-Sim. ' Fa n !in-..

VARSITY FOOTBALL The 1950 football season of the Neenah Rockets resulted in a 2-2-2 Northeastern Wisconsin Confer- ence standing and a 3-2-2 season record, A fine season, coached efiieiently by Coach Art Paff and paced by john Cundlachis sixty points, was on the roster for Neenah High School football. Robert Schmidt, fight- ing guard, along with john Cundlach, were named co-captains. The first game of the season, a home game and a non- eonferenee tilt, was against Kewaunee September 16. The Rockets tripped them 27-14, starting the season with a bang. The following week the Rockets met Clintonville in their first game on the road, their first NEW tilt, and their first loss of the season. In this game it is well to mention that the Rockets outdid and outplayed their opponents, but a few bad breaks lost the game. On September 30, the Rockets played their first NEW home game against Two Rivers and won their first victory against one defeat in NEW play. B FOOTBALL Neenah reserves had a successful season winning two out of their three games. 'l'he "B" team, coached by Mr. Charles Shepard, heat Clintonville 6 to 0 on Frank VViesner's touchdown. They won over Appleton 24 to 6 with touchdowns by jorgensen, Rine and IViesner, but lost to Nlenasha 8 to 12. Ralph Kemps made a touchdown in the game on a pass from Donald Metz, the other two points were scored on a safety. Then the Rockets ehalked up their second victory in conference play with an overwhelming 33-0 white- wash against the New London Bulldogs October 6. The biggest and best game of the season then fol- lowed, the Neenah-Menasha tilt. Played on October 13 under the rain and lights of the Butte des Mortes Field, the underdog eleven from Menasha held the favored Rockets to a 13-all deadlock. In this battle, john Cundlaeh made the longest NEW run of the season, a 98-yard sprint. A week later, October 20, the Rockets as the under- dogs pulled the cat out of the bag to tie Shawano in the last two minutes of the game, making two touch- downs in two minutes for a 20-20 tie. The last game of the season, Saturday, October 28, the Rockets lost to Kaukauna in their homecoming game on the Rocket gridiron. Kaukauna tied with Clintonville for the Number One spot in the confer- ence, thus ending the season for the Neenah gridiron boys with a fine record and some excellent playing. FROSH FOOTBALL This past season our freshman football team was coached by Xlr. Dale Stone. The frosh played six games winning four and ending in third place for the season. They defeated Roosevelt, Kimberly, McKinley, and Kaukauna but lost to XVilson and Menasha. During the season there were two casualties as Barry lfrazen and john Owen were both lost with leg injuries.

Captain Dean VVisthof-f who scored a total of 98 points during the conference season was fol- lowed closely by John Cundlach with 95. In the regional tournament at Menasha, Neenah lost its first game to Kaukauna, won over East DePere in the second game, and lost to Kimberly for consolation honors, ending in fourth place, with Kimberly in third, Manawa in second, and our Blue Jay rivals in first place. "B" Basketball Back row: Coach Williams, Thomas Kerrigan, Kenneth Bemoski, Cordon Beck. Second row: David Miller, Stuart Rassmussen, Timothy Morgan, Donald Foth, William Wiesner. First row: William Kutscher, Robert Kuehl, John Schiebler, Donald Fisher, Thomas Ryan, Anthony Koehn, Once again our junior-varsity team had a success- ful year. Coach Ivan Williams led them to a sec- ond place position in the league, ranking second to Menasha. Out of the sixteen games they played, they lost only 6 while winning 10. Neenah got off to a bad start losing their first two games to Appleton and Wisconsin Rapids, but they soon came back with a 35 to 12 victory over Brillion. In the following game, the Iunior Truckers from Clintonville defeated Neenah 33 to 32 in a very close game. Once again Neenah came back with a flying victory over Kaukauna, scoring a total of 34 points to Kaukaunzfs 24. De- feat came again when they met the Shawano In- Freshmen dians, who defeated the juniors 33 to 28. The junior Rockets came back from their defeat breezing past Two Rivers 45 to 28. In the next game our boys defeated Ripon by the narrow margin of two points in a close 32 to 30 win. N ee- nah carried its winning one farther by whipping the New London Bulldogs 41 to 22. However, on the fateful january 12 the team had the wind knocked out of its sails at the hands of those Menasha Blue Jays who came through with a 43 to 25 victory. Once again Neenah came back, winning over Clintonville and Kaukauna by 6 point margins. In the next game, the junior Rockets edged past Shawano in a close 44 to 43 decision. Our boys came through in the following games with wins over New London and Two Rivers. The season ended with the Neenah-Menasha game February 22, Neenah being defeated 41 to 30. Thomas Kerrigan, Anthony Koehn, and Kenneth Bemowski led the "B" team in scoring. These, with the other members of this rapidlyimproved team, will make fine material for the varsity team next year. Lacking experience proved to be a decided handi- cap to the Neenah High School freshman basket- ball squad this past season. Although they won only two games and lost ten, they profited by their instruction under the patient and able coaching of Mr. Paff. I 5 ww. . saw? as EE in 43? 46 COACH BRAUN r' ' -V Q Baseball The 1949-50 varsity baseball team had a very successful season as the Neenah Rockets played their second conference season. In 1948, Neenah had a total of three wins, and five setbacks. This year they secured five victories with only two losses. In mid-April about 40 boys reported for the team, and Coach Braun had the diffi- cult job of cutting it down to only 18 players. Neenah made an impressive start as 16 of the 18-man squad played as Neenah trounced Ripon 15 to 5 in an exhibition game. The team went on to win from the old Blue Jay rivals, 5 to 3. Shawano also was defeated 13 to 9. Next, Coach Braunfs team went on to beat Kaukauna 6 to 5 and New London 4 to 3, two very close, exciting games. Then came Neenahfs first defeat, a close 6 to 5 loss to Clintonville. The powerful Neenah Rockets ended in a first place deadlock with Menasha, each having four wins and one loss. The big guns of Neenah kept the wins coming behind the great pitching of Tom Hawley. Keith Forsythe led the batters with a strong .-350. He was closely followed b Roger Kleman .304, and James Bachman .300. Other included Donald Metz .277 an Jim Shannon 273. John Cundlach came through with two homers in the Shawano gamf Tom Hawley was the leading pitcher. He has a record of 4 wins and 2 losses, but in 34 ii nings he allowed only 19 safe blows and struck out 43 batters. However, in the tournament Neenah failed to come through, and lost to Menasha 3 to 1 Letter winners were James Bachman, Roger Kleman, James Jacobson, James Shannoi Keith Forsythe, Douglas Kramer, John Gundlach, Thomas Hawley, 'Roy Peterson an Paul Parsons. Coach Joe Braun is going to be minus most of his players as the many valuable sei iors graduate. He predicts that pitching will be his weakest spot next year. After a very successful season, Coach Braun should be given a great deal of credit fc his tireless efforts used to bring baseball back to Neenah High School.

Thomas Hawley, Douglas Kramer, Wallace Webb, 48 Track As usual, our 1950 track team had a successful season. Rocket cindermen won 2 of their 5 dual or triangular meets and finished as very strong competition in all of the rest. Even though we lost many of the lettermen from the 1949 track team, the coaches, Jorgensen, Paff, and Dunwid- die, did a spectacular job and produced another great team. The Rockets got off to a flying start by defeating our neighboring rivals, Menasha, by a score of 62 to 51 on April 28. Six firsts were won by Ger- hardt, Miller, Kuehl, Laflin, Marquardt, and Wist- holf. Our next meet was with Two Rivers on May 4. We came out second best as they won 6434 to 4835. Neenah had only one first, but we had many sec- onds and thirds. The next meet was a dual meet with Ripon, who, as usual was tough. Again we lost, this time 68 to 45. However, Laiiin, Cerhardt, and Wisthoff, came through with firsts. Next came the Northeastern Wisconsin Confer- ence meet on May 11. Out of the 9 teams Neenah came out fifth. Dean Wisthoff got Neenah's only first and Douglas Potratz and Kuehl came through with seconds. The Rockets returned to the victory column in a triangular meet with Clintonville and New Lon- don on May 15. Neenah took 6 firsts out of a pos- sible 12. Cerhardt, Potratz, Kuehl, Laflin, and Wisthoff came out with firsts. Final score: Nee- nah 8916, New London 6012 and Clintonville 46. A good job! Our next meet was the all-important sectional on May 19. Out of the 17 competing schools we tied for fifth Csame as last yearj. Fredrick Cer- hardt, in the 440, Doug Potratz, in the half mile. and Dean XVisthoff, in the high jump, all qualified for the state jump meet. Our last meet was a dual meet with Kaukauna on May 22. We lost it. 68 to 45. Cerhardt, Blank, Potratz, Kuehl, and WVist- hoff got firsts. Other individual stars were Joey Cerhardt who ran in both the 200 yard dash and the 440. He won 4 firsts and 2 seconds in the 440. Mel Blank and Ronnie Garfield were the "hurrying-hurdlers," both taking many seconds and thirds. Douglas Potratz took 2 firsts and 2 seconds in the half mile, and Duane Kuehl was our great miler, tak- ing 4 firsts and 2 seconds in the 7 meets. Neil Laflin took 3 firsts in the high jump. and he and Bill Labre were our leading jumpers. Dean NVist- hoff took 6 firsts and one second in the seven meets in the pole vault! Dick Broas was our shot- putter and A1 Carpenter and Eddie Faulks were our discus throwers. Our relay tearn was usually made up of Stilp, Laflin, Schultz, and Cerhardt, The only Neenah boy to place in the state meet was Ioey Cerhardt, who got a first in the 440. Thus, Neenah ended a very successful track sea- son. The captain of the 1950 team was Duane Kuehl. The lettermen elected Frederick Cerhardt the captain of the 1951 team.

Tennis The 1949-50 tennis team, under the capable coach- ing of Mr. Ivan VVilliams, again put Neenah High School up among the leaders in state competition. In dual competition our squad was undefeated in thirteen matches for the season. This record in- cludes a clean sweep of the Northeastern confer- ence as well as wins over squads from larger schools, such as Appleton, VVauwatosa and Mani- towoc. N eenah defeated the strong Appleton team twice, 4-3 and 6-1, The Rockets were victorious over Green Bay VVest 7-0 and 6-1. ln these two matches Captain Tom Miller and Don Rondou, the event- ual state champion, each won once. Wauwatosa, always a strong team, was defeated 7-2. In a match between probably the two best balanced teams in the state, the Rockets defeated Mani- towoc 6-1, stopping Manitowocis string of twenty- COACH VVILLIAMS three consecutive dual match victories. The Rock- ets also beat Menasha 7-0 and 7-0. Milwaukee Country Day, undefeated during the previous sea- son, was bested 5-4. Other victims were Shawano twice, Oshkosh and Fond du Lac. Neenah walked away with the conference cham- pionship. Tom Miller defeated Fred Solomon in the singles championship, and Dick Iorgensen and Dick Rine teamed to win the doubles. ln the state tournament, with Neenah acting as a good host, we allowed Milwaukee East to pass us. We Hnished second in a field of twenty-eight schools with 21 points, one point behind the win- ner. Letter winners were Tom Miller, captain and number one singles player, Dick Rine, Fred Solo- mon, Dick Curtis, Iunior O,Neil, Dick Jorgensen, Bill Gresenz and Don Hagman. Much credit should be given Mr. Williams for leading the team through another successful sea- son. 1 fi-NM Intramurals began in the fall with tag football. The team captained by William Gresenz won first place in the Sen- ior League. Donald Konitzer's team was iirst in the junior League. The Gresenz team was also first in the Senior in Hashball.

The winner of the checker game between Robbin Bonnin and Peter Clausen was to play Alfred Mills for the cham- pionship. Howard Iohnson,s basketball team won six games and lost one to take the championship in the Freshman Basketball League. The teams captained by Ammerman, Biolo, and Zenisek tied for second, each winning live games and los- ing two. The results of many more sports, such as chess, basketball, ping-pong, shuilleboard, handball, and the shooting of free throws, were not available as the "Rocket', went to press 52 X T, fy I Vi , My - . ..., S , f .3 .. , ' .

Conservation Club The Conservation Club is one of the schoolis largest and most active groups. This yearis membership of 246 is the greatest in fourteen years. The officers of the club this year are president, Ronald Kuchenbecker, vice-president, Vernon Jankowski, secretary, Sarah Muttart, and treas- urer, Mary Abendroth. The board members are Ronald Lange, David Gerhardt, John Gund- lach, Barbara Brown and Dorothy Schabo. Each club member receives a B rating for every 60 hours of actual work he does and an A rating for 120 hours of work. These ratings are entered on his report card. Inactive members receive 15 points per year just for joining the club. In this way a member can accumulate a B rating in four years. Rabbit trapping, archery, bird feeding, hikes and other fields pertaining to conservation are some of the activities in which students may participate. Last spring, twenty Neenah High seniors went to the Trees for Tomorrow Camp near Eagle River. It was the second year that students from this school have attended the four day session. There the campers were given instructions in everything from fire-fighting to tree planting. This group of students does a great service to our school and to the community. Their fine work could not be accomplished, however, without the able assistance of the club's faculty advisor, Mr. C-erhardt. 1 i Nfl Q?

Resolved: That the American people should reject welfare state was the debate question for this year and the subject of much contro- versy this season. This year,s "A" team consisted of Dorothy Heckner and Ralph Frakes debating on the negative side and jane Loehning and Donald Cowling on the afbrmative side. The team's combined "Af "B," and "Cn teams elected ofH- cers for the first time. Donald Cowling was chosen presidentg Dorothy Heckner, vice-pres- ident, and lane Loehning, secretary-treasurer. The season was begun with practice debates at Two Rivers, Port Washington, VVest Bend and Sheboygan Central. A conference debate was held at Neenah at which the Neenah "An team won four out of Five debates. On February 3 at the district tournament at Appleton, the "A" squad won four debates of en, Aubrey Fowler, jane Loehning, Beverly Ralph Kinzel, Timothy Morgan, john Millar, the six. This made them eligible for the sec- tional tournament at Stevens Point on Febru- ary 10. At this tournament the team failed to make the needed four out of six debates and thus was not eligible for the state tournament. Mr. Dunwiddie coached his "A" team on to a total of 21 wins and 21 defeats in seven tourna- ments. The "Bn team, under the coaching of Mr. Dun- widdie and Miss Hughes, won six out of six debates at their tournament at Kaukauna on February 17. At the same tournament the "C" team won three out of six. To round up the season the "AU team gave ex- hibition debatcs for several Neenah service clubs, Kiwanis Club, Rotary Club, and the Nee- nah Club. These served as a Fitting close for a very successful season for the Neenah debate team. BTW R593 'll' Back row: Katherine F razee, Beverly Braun, Bruce Davis, jane Loehning, Ralph F rakes.

Cub Staff The first edition of the "Cub," a special mimeo- graphed copy, came out on the first day of school to greet the returning students and give ominous warning to the nfreshiesv about the "Cub Mixer." As usual, the first Saturday of the school year saw a trembling freshman class initiated into N.H.S. school life. Carol Sorensen, one of the co-editors acted as emcee for the Mixer. December for the "Cubn staff meant the special six-page Christmas issue and the party for staff members where ridiculous gifts were exchang- ed. Next came the popular April Fool edition which brought to light many hidden facts and fancies about pupils and teachers alike. Participation in the State Tuberculosis Essay Contest earned an honorable mention for the "Cub" The annual "Cub,' picnic was held to conclude the year at which the 1951-52 staff was an- nounced. Special mention should be made of the capable iob done by Carol Meartz and Carol Sorensen, co-editors, the advisors, Miss Andrew and Mr. Poellinger, and the entire editorial and mechan- ical staff. an BQ Back row: Darlene Snell, Shirley Collier, Eileen lungenberg, Shirley Knaaclc, Lavila Kuether, Di- anne Anderson, Ioyee Freier, Shirley Porath., Alo- anne Boehm.
