MR. RIERLIN L. 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-
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

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.

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
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
In fall, we returned to school to resume the
activities started during our ,freshman 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
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-
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
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
Several junior boys, john Gundlach, Deon Wis-
toff, and john Gieger, played regularly on the var-
sity basketball team, where they made a good
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
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
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.

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
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.
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.
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.

Lacking experience proved to be a decided handi-
cap to the Neenah High School freshman basket-

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
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

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.

thirteen matches for the season. This record in-
