It is with sincere gratitude lor his fine
coaching, his loyal service and his under-
standing support that we dedicate the
l952 ltloclzet to Mr. Art Paif. Since he
joined the Necnah coaching stall, he
and his gridders have huilt up an en-
viahle winfloss record and earned the
respect and admiration ol' the whole
student lnody. Although his health neces-
sitated his resignation from the high
school llaculty, we wish him every suc-
cess in his grade school teaching, and we
are sure that his hoys will come to high
school as good athletes and good sports.
YVe, the class ol' 1952, wish to dedi-
cate our Rocket to Nliss Meyer, who in
the past, has served so capahly as its
editorial advisor. We want to express
our appreciation and gratitude lor the
hard worlt and the time which she has
devoted to the annual. Good luck and
good health in the future, Miss Meyer.
Vve hope that you will soon he hack in
school with us.

The seemingly impossible has happened. Only
four years ago we had been inexperienced "green-
hornsv stumbling around the halls of N. H. S., now
we have become alumni with our goal-graduation
-behind us. lt was a good four years with many
happy memories to look back on.
As freshmen we were oriented into high school
life with the annual Cub Mixer. After that first
plunge we lived through the shock to carry on
happily the remainder of the year. We elected john
Kalfahs as class president, with Frank Wiesner as
vice-president, Marlyn Anderson, secretary, and
jack Schaefer, treasurer. The girls elected to the
Girls' Senate for that year were joan Zaumeyer,
june Reynolds, Kathryn Pheifer, and Muriel
Schneider. The boys started going out for sports,
and we all began to join the various clubs. As
freshmen our major class activity was putting on a
dance exclusively for freshmen.
After a satisfying freshman year we were glad,
nevertheless, to return in the fall to find an entire
class younger than we were. This really made us
determined to show our maturity, and it was then
that our boys began to take over the "B" teams in
sports. Not to be outdone, everybody began to show
a little more leadership in the different school
organizations. Our class sponsored numerous after-
game dances that year which proved to be very
successful. We also sponsored the all-school "Fizz-
Festn where everybody had a lot of fun at a slightly
"different" dance. Our sophomore class president
was Don Metz, with jim Murphy as vice-prcsidentg
jillene Raisler, secretary, and Ronald Garfield, treas-
We returned the next fall as upper classmen with
the one big job cut out for us that is always con-
nected with being a junior-the prom. The officers
we elected to lead us in this task were jerry Kuehl,
president, jim Sturgis, vice-president, and Nancy
Owen and Dennis Strey, as secretary and treasurer,
respectively. The prom committees were formed
almost immediately after class elections, and work
was begun. After much doubt and anxiety on the
part of all those concerned as to the outcome. the
great night, May 5th arrived. The "finished product"
was successful, however, and several hundred
couples had a marvelous time dancing to jimmy
james' music under the "Blue Moon."
The prom, however, was not the only item on
our junior social calendar. The varsity teams were
now comprised largely of juniors, and many club
leaders were also from our class. We were, in addi-
tion, active in such organizations as forensics,
debate, band, and choir.
The following fall we returned to N. ll. S. ar '
with some surprise found ourselves to be the real
school leaders in our own right. To lead us in the
final all-important year we selected Dick jorgenscn
as president, Pete Thomson, vice-president, Dorothy
Schabo, secretary, and Donna Burr, treasurer.
Career Day was held in October, and helped
many of us on some career problems that had been
bothering us. It was this year, too, that we led
both the various teams and many clubs and organi-
zations. However, early in the year we found our-
selves busy with activities labeled "for seniors only."
These, of course, included preparing for graduation
pictures, being measured for caps and gowns, and
ordering our cards and announcements. Almost be-
fore we realized it, our last prom was upon us.
Enjoying it fully we then found ourselves at the
Senior Banquet. This preceded our last participa-
tion in any N. ll. activity-baccalaureate and
graduation. These were held on june l, and june
4, respectively and marked the close of our N. fl.
The four years that had seemed so endless when
we started school in 1948 are now gone, and wc
soon will have new goals to be striving for.
We will never completely forget Neenah High
School. however. lt will remain forever in our

consin conference with a record of four wins, two
losses and one tic. The Rockets lost to Green
Bay West in a non-conference tilt. Coach .ferry
Thompson, in his first year at Neenah lligh, did

enced squad into a first-division team.

Green Bay West 33-O on September 15. The
Rockets fought hard throughout the entire contest
but Wests power proved too much for them.

game, defeated Kimberly 13-0 in their NEW con-
ference opener. Neenalrs defense was outstanding
as Kimberly ended up with minus eight yards
gained on the ground and only 74 yards through

way to a 20-20 tie with the Clintonvillc Truckers.
Coming from behind three times. the Rockets
picked up almost half of their yardage on passes.
Still undefeated in NEVV conference standings,
Neenah tipped Two Rivers 9-6 on October 5. ln
that tight game, the winning factor was a second-
quilrter field goal by Dick Rine.
Completely dominating the gridiron, Coach
rllhompsonis gridders decisively beat New London
27-O on October 12. Bill Kutscher paced the
Rocket offense with three touchdowns.
The following week Neenah met 1Nflenasha in
the thirty-sixth football battle between the two
schools. liighting valiantly all the way, the Rockets
lost to the Bluejays 13-6.
ln their final home game of the season, the
Neenah Rockets tipped a stubborn Shawano lndian
team 14-12 on October 27. Dick Rine starred for
Neenah as he scored both touchdowns and kicked
both of the extra points.
Neenah finished up a very successful season al-
though they lost to Kaukauna 25-7 in their final
game. Playing hard throughout the entire contest,
the Rockets were simply out-classed by the more
powerful Ghost gridders.
