'L' 5?3ll?33?3l 'Q' CIQIFTSQN HND 'VVIAIIIE HISTORY OF CLASS OF '26 It is hard to tell how many members we had enrolled when we first started on our notorious career. I guess none of the members of our society could ever tell you, nor can anyone else, but at the time the Seniors of the Crlass of '23 put out their Annuals we were said to have sixty memlbers. Between that time and' the time the Annual of '24 was published the following students dropped out: Olga Botnen, Bab- ette Brauer, Lester Langraf, Florence Pollnow, Clara Poziombka, Harold Riedel Emil Reisner, Ruth Slocomfb, Mildred Stanley, Reginald Wagner and James West. Two of -these, namely Ruth Slocomb and Babette Brauer returned to us. We also received some new members when we entered as Sophomores, who were Carl Aegerter, Arthur Linfglfeman, Byron Smith and Jean Sharratt. This made our total membership equal to ty. During our enjoyable Junior year we lost Carl Aegerter, Edward Betz, Hazel Bremer, Blair Bronstad, Perry Herian, Arthur Lindeman, Merton Lynch, Harry Reese, Franklin Reindel, Ella Stucki, Emma Swanson and James Treska. But as each loss receives its compensation, we were lhonored by Margel Andrews, Vivian Drake, Sara Sample, Hulda Snyder, Ethel and Douglas Walters seeking admittance to our class. H In our. Senior year we lost and again received members. Margel Andrews, Stephen Kopecky, James Vincent, Kenneth Wallace and Guy Lloyd left us. Those that came to us during our Senior year were: Anabel Davis and Ruth Kurtzweg and four Post Graduates from Greenwood, Granton and Neillsville-Geneva Davis, Grace Lastofka, Innis Snyder and Marian Ure. Until we now 'have a total enrollment of forty-four members. Those who are still enrolled have remained true to our motto, whidh is "He con- quers who conquers himself". Our fiower is the Lily of the Valley, and our colors are blue and silver. We are proud of our choice of motto, Hower and Icolors. We are aslo proud of our class as a whole, and proud of the members individually who have rendered their services and brought honors to N. H. S. In our memories still cling the many good times which we as a whole class en- joyed. Among the most noted festivities and gatherings which we enjoyed are: the Sophomore and Junior Sleigh Rides, all the Weiner Roasts, our First Class Meeting, the Junior-Senior Banquets, the Freshman Receptions, our Class Plays, the inter- class ibasket ball games, and many other good times. Our class is noted for its many romances. Even when the girls wore hair rib- bons and the boys their knee pants, we had our cases. We have not all -stayed within our class boundaries, but have gone in search of our divinities in the realms of the upper or lower classmen. Of fcourse, there are a few, for instance---oh well, I'll not mention any names, 'but if the 'coat doe-sn't fit don't put it on. We can remember the teachers whom we had when we were Freshmen. Miss Morse, our English teacher, was a real pal to us, Miss Hartnell we remember as a real shark in Mathematics, and Mr. Swanson, who asked us for a joke every day. Then too, we have had many good laughs. I can well remember when we were studying "The 'Merchant of Venice" in English, when Miss Morse asked Ed. Betz what the forfeit was that Shylock demanded, and how Ed. was "kicked" out of class for answering, "A pound of hide", instead of a pounfd of flesh, also the time Vilas said he hardly expected to take the room with him when Miss Mills asked him to "Please leave the room". Oh, we had many a good laugh in our Junior and Senior years too, but we all admit that our Freshmen and Sophomore days were the real days. They are gone, but not forgotten. In spite of all those triHing aifairs, such as getting those goose eggs, fiunking, staying after school for whispering, we have icome through our 'four years of High .School with few blemishes, some deep scars, and loads of vital experience. It is time for our god-bye to the "Halls of Knowledge" and our lower classmates. In leaving we shall say that "All that we have, and all that we are" we owe to our teachers, and to Mr. Hansen's hand which has guided us all of our four years of Neillsville High School Days. A. E. '26 21 :sake of the hitherto high morale, enthusiastic school spirit, leadership in athletics, CRIMSQN HND VVIA ITE g SENIORS' FAREWELLI We lhave come to the end of a four year journey-a journey which looked im- mensely long to us when we started on it in September 1922, but which, as we look back upon it now, seems to have passed with the rapidity and taunting celerity of mercury. Oh, the ambitions we had, the majestic air castles We built, the gossamer designs we wove of the tlhings we would do while in high school, especially as Seniors! But have all our desires been realized and all our goals reached? Probably not: but 'whereas some of us have failed to accomplish what we desired so far, we will be de- termined to achieve definite ends in the life which we will encounter outside of our beloved school, for we are still dreaming and planning to do wonderul things in the future. There have been studies-a myriad of them it seems. Oh, how tiresome an-d exasperating they seemed' at times. Some of them we loved -and others-well others we didn't love, but, to look back upon them as a whole, they appear to have -been more like play than drudgery. And Why shouldn't they be? We had instructors whose sole work it was to help us along the sometimes diilicul-t path to knowledge and a num- ber of fellow students to work and 'compete witfh. There were many of us bound to- gether, by the strongest ties-work and the constant striving for common aims. Where will we again be members of a group with the sa-me hopes, same ambitions, and the same aspiration-s as we had in high school? When will we again find that we are workin g only for the cultivation of our minds, unhampered by .sordid financial worries? And where will we find people as interested in us and as willing to help us in our work as our teac'hers have been? Where will we find work as fascinatingly .absorbing as the study of numerous important and broadening subjects taught in the 'clearest and most interesting manner that professional educations can devise? Where will we find conditions, both physical and moral as care-fully worked out as in the .school? When will we find so-cial gathering, athletic contests, plays and other forms of recreation and enjoyment so closely connected with and intimately related to our work as in our high school days? When in short, will we find so much pleasant in- structive work, coupled with such enjoyable activities as We have 'participated in our good old N. H. S. Is it any wonder that we are loathe to say "Goodbye" and that we envy those who will continue to attend this school next year? We only ask of them tlhat, for the and untiring efforts of the facutly, they will, in the future, do their best toward mak- ing this school one of the best institutions of its kind. Iff we can be sure they will do this, then, although there will be a certain sadness at parting, we will be content, be- cause we will know that the school's fhigh standards will fbe upheld by those who will .follow, when we say "Farewell".

Forty-one have dropped from our list, Now they are no more in 'our midst. Alice Alden, the first in our mob, Is now appearing with a boyish bob. Her sister, Mable, next with a sigh, With Merlin Steuerwald very near by. Emily Arndt is very small, But Esther Baird is not at all. Julius Berlin from California came, Leo Barton is not so tame. To the Swastika belongs Clara Bartell. Just ask Eleanor Kissling to yell. Albertine Barton is a 'country resident. Florence Bradford is our Vice President. Alice Braun, in turn, is very meek. Edna Bruss has found a different shiek. But as a Junior, I must admit,, Gretchen Ferguson is showing her wit. Jimmy 'Gates looks after the girls. Rosaline Hartung has the curls. Othilia Hauser to the Pine Tree does belong. And Walter Keller is NEVER wrong. Walter Hemp is our great athlete. Laura Lautenbach has always someone to meet. Kenneth Keach has just finished his -lunchg It takes him all noon to greet the bunch. Vera Rollins and Harold King Since this year have entered our ring. Laager, 'Linster and Loberg are with us still Each under the grind of the same old mill. "I'm giving Helen McDonough a zero, you see". "Oh, Mr. Irnislund! 'That will mean nothing to me". Then there's Ruth Moen or rather "Carrots" Medick and Nort-hup are talkative as parrots. Gene and Violet O'Brien are improving each year. Helen Po-ler usually brings up the rear. Of studious, intelligent twins we have a pair- Emma and Mida Quinlan. Such are very rare. Emma Scherer is Imislund's pet? Next Frieda Schroeder-s1he's of another set. Geralda Thompson, a typewriter can touch, Forty per for her is not very much. Frank -Stelloh is never known to be late. Bill Terman would never jump a freight. Skipping school Agnes Wagner ne'er did. Elliot Warlum is a "classy kid." Last of all, except my name comes Arthur Zank, Who makes it a daily practice a Ford to crank.

We started from the town of Seif to Walk .o the station at Neillsville. The way was through the forest in which we saw a lovely cool, looking Glenn, around which grew Ferns and Roses. At the edge of the woods was a grove of tall slender Hazel trees and all round spread the green Grass. After 'passing the grove we reached the station where we boarded a train going North-up to Sault St. Marie and Port Arthur, where we met those famous movie stars Norman and Vera. We were delighted to meet them but we soon left this place for Boston. At Boston we were delighted to make the acquaintance of several famous people. First we were taken to a literary meeting where Frances E. Willard and Alice Free- man Palmer were sicfheduled to speak. Next we met E. Everett Hale, th-e statesman, Cooper, the famous author, and Hale, the noble martyr, all of whom will long be re- membered as great Americans. Of coursc, after meeting all these characters of History we were somewhat ready to enjoy our-Selves, Therefore, that evening we all attended- the musical com- edy "Irene" in which the actor starred. The next morning we board-ed the good -ship,Minnie May, and resumed our jour- ney to France. In "gay Paree" we had the fortune to make ourselves known to Louis, the kingg after a few days. stay he accompanied us on a trip to Florence. At this Italian city we had many surprises. We arrived in the afternoon and the first sight that met our eyes was a Pan-ett acting as Harold for Commander Nelson, who was just entering the city. "Ray! Ray! for the general," he shouted. That evening we saw the Italian tragedienne, Eleanor, in a stirring drama in which a Pearl was the cause of the tragedy. As it started to Raine the next day we left this place and made our way to Mt. Ida and Troy to view the homes of the handsome Paris and Helen of Troy. Helen Scheel dropped her il-Iantke into a river on the mount and this, we all said was an omen that history was to repeat itself. "Shawl I do:n't believe it", said Helen and we can- not yet tell the truth. After leaving Troy we took a hurried trip to the Holy Land where we heard many stories of Joseph and other Bible characters. Now we turned our steps homeward and arrived in Washington just in time to travel with Theodore Roosevelt. To shorten the time he told us stories about Wetzel, the Indian hunter in Zane Grey's stories. Erma told of how she had once Kalsow- mined for her mother and did so poorly that it helped her mother in a very Schmoll way. ' That afternoon we visited the Chicago Tribune Building and saw Casper, a comic personality whom I am sure everybody knows for he plays in Toots and Casper. Cas- per and Toots are-well, you ought to know. After this we turned our steps homeward and at last arrived at the good old N. H. S. and the Terman-ation of our travels. 30 . . - C Il-8, I Tff 5 Q N '- 'N ut bn? - 0L'F2'.2"22 ' -12 2 '5,5 2' 2' HND VVI IITE BZ IIIBII 3I ' FRESHMEN 32 ' Cl?.lT'l5C3lXl HND VVIAIITE ' FRESHMEN Mr. Sharp, Advisor Edward Frantz, President Carol Matheson, Vice-President Leona Barton, Secretar X Ruth Hucksetad, Treasurer Class Color-Blue and Silver Class Motto--Work and Win Class Flower--Lily of the Valley Lynch, Walter Malamphy, Irene Matheson, iCarol May, Florence Neff, Harriet Nenahlo, Verona O'Brien, Harold Pagelsdorf, Milton Prock, Lucille Redmond, Ruth Reindel, Helene Reinhard, Florence Rowe, Fern Schlinsog, Alma Schlnisog, Ruth Schmidt, Clarence Schweinler, Ione Schwellenbach, Bennie Smith, Helen Sonheim, Philip Spry, Dorothy Steuerwald, Eileen Suckow, Vern Vine, Anita Wagner, Alma Walter, Francis Walters, Mildred Weaver, Walter West, Leland White, Clarence Wildish, Donald Zaeske, Eflmer Zille, Leona Andersen Frederick Anderson, Ruth Baird, Mildred Barton, Leona Braatz, Erwin Braatz, Helen Braatz, Leonard Cattnach, Kenneth Davis, Ione Dietrich, Loveilla Donahue, Harry Ehlers, Evelyn Ferguson, Alice Ferguson, Louise Frantz, Edward Gaden Genevieve Gall, Alex Gerhardt, Irving' Gress Gertrude Hagen, Erna Higgins, Owen Hiles, Rachel Horsvvill Hulbert Huckstead, Ruth Junchen ,Harold Junchen, Lawrence Kedlac.

They were out for a little recreation while the going was good, for the follow- ing week brought the fatal examinations. They started to Verona which, incedental- ly, is a little town down by our state capital, where one of our number used to re- side. They were going to go by Way of Merrillan Juncheon, 'but decided to take the road through Owen instead, because the road going west was poor. As they were riding along they saw a dog Wagn'er tail so hard that they thought is was coming off. They had just gone a little way farther when the car got stuck in he mud. Some one suggesed winding a Vine around each of the back wheells, but as this did not work Harriet had to Wade through the mud and push. She pushed so hard that she had a Schwel-len-bach all the rest of the day. When she stepped into the car she said to Mary: "May Eileen on you?" Mary said she could if she didn't lean too hard. Asxthey weren't out of the mud yet, Dempsey got out and pushed the car clear of all the mud in the vicinity. A :little way farther they met Ruth And-er-son. Then said Frances to Mildred, "She seems very Spry, doesn't she?" Irene answered for Mildred by replying -that she did. Along about supper-time they came to a group of trees. Milton pointed to one a.nd said: "Is that an Elm-er a White Oak?" Vernie replied that it was neither one, that it was a Maple. In this grove of trees there were two boys with Schlin- 5085, shooting at a Harry Woodpecker up in a tree. "You Braatz quit that", said Helene. "Oh, We'av'er already", said one of them, "but you don't need to Lynch us for it". In a pasture nearby there was a horse eating very fast. Rachel said, "That Zille Hors-will eat all the Gress there is if somebody doesn't do something". "I-one -that horse", said Harold, "so you needn't worry". It started to rain then and Helen said, "I Wish I were in Frantz where there is' always Sunshine, but seeing that we are not -let's Carol for a while". They all agreed, but had to stop in a flittle while because the farmers threatened to have them arrested for disturbing the peace. When they finally reached Owen, the show was just starting, so some of them went to the theare. Alice said to Louise, "Wil-ma let us go" "Oh, I guess sog let's go anyway", said Louise. The comedy was about Mutt and Jeff. It was so funny that Harriet reduced tweny pounds laughing. In the- show there were many Letwon words used that they could not understand. While these -members of the party were taking in the show, Clarence and Alex to-ok th e car and came back right before the show ended. As Irving and Kenneth were left be- hind ,they said, "Die-trich was a fine one". Evelyn, Lucilfle, Leona, and Florence- didn't go to the show, but took a walk around town. The next morning they decided not to go to Verona, but to return home, which they did without mishap. 34 I TE - . Q ..- ' IIIIIIIIIIA gi. Ilvrtlrlilll .v. 'IIPIDJFIIYI . . - .. - . fin 'T 'V I rf .

The team is very unfortunate in losing Ben from the squad. A man of his abirlity will be hard to replace. OLSON "Gib" HERIAN Gib playing his first year at quarter made a great showing. ,His speed made up for his size. HDOUM Herian held down the position of left half for the period of two years. Although he was handicapped with a sprained shoulder, he came through in good standing. HEMP "Adolph" BARTON BRULEY Hemp playing his first year on the squad proved to 'be one of the most consistant ground gainers in the backfield. We expect great things of "Adolph" next season. Barton, another new man on the team, was good at bucking the line and a great defensive player. Barton will also be back with us next year. Hvileyry Bruley, one of the veterans of the team, was a great center and an accur- ate passer. Bruley, graduating this year, will leave a position hard to be filled. , SCHROEDER "Majority" ZAESKE "Majority" taking Vincent's place, due to injuries, filled the position with great success. "Majority" has three years left in which to make a name for himsevlf. Zaeske, one of the mainstays of the line, with his great eye for following the ball, picked up many fumbles one of which was turned into a touch- down. Zaeske is also 'leaving us this year. BRADBUNRY "Babe" "Babe", one -of the best pass catchers on the -team, gained many yards through his pass catching ,and made one of the few touchdowns of the season. SOHWEINLER "Doc" "Doc's" first year on the team proved to be ,very successful. He was known for his ability to make holes for the backfield. HUBBARD "Lyndie" Hubbard played hard and steady in every game in which he participated. Hubbard also leaves the team this year. 37 , - - , -, -,- ....-::::v:: -l- :w::....... -s- w:::e:::2.: -2 FOOTBALL SEASON '26 With 'the opening of school this year, the usual call for football players was sen: out. Everyone in school seemed to be interested and there were a great number of possible candidates for the squad. Coach Olson started right in with real footbal. training. With five of last year's men on the field the prospects of a good season were at hand. Coach Olson was deltermined to have a good team, and he arranged things so that the practice would start at 3 o'clock. Everyone was out early and for the first cou- ple of.weeks the pracftice lasted until late. After things got started, prac- tice was shortened a little. After things were rounded into shape a little the team went by car to Tomah for the opening game of the season. Some of the cars had a hard time getting through some of the roads, but everyone goft to Tomah in time for the afternoon's perform- ance. The day was one of the hottest that anyone could imagine for playing a hard football game. The game started out with a bang, and due to ignorance on the part of some of 'the players, Tomah got their first touch down. The game ended with Neillsville on the short end of the score, the score 'being 19-0. The second game of the season was with Augusta at Neillsville. This game was very close all the way through. Augusta carried the ball to Neillsvllle's one yard line several times, but here Neillsville's stone wall defense held them for four downs, Augusta's back field was very good at line plunging, but was stopped repeatedly by the Crimson line. The game ended with a score of 10-0 in favor of the Crimson and White. In the third game Neillsville met Black River Falls on the home field. The game was played on a mud covered field which made a fast game impossible Against all rules of football Neillsville staged a brilliant pass attack, which in the third period of play resulted in a touch dovsm In the last quarter Black River Falls carried the ball to the four yard line, but here again Neillsville's stone wall defense held the Orange :and Black for four downs, and then punted the oval out of the danger territory. The .score at the end of the game was 6-0 in our favor. The fourth and last game of the season was with Owen at Owen. The Crimson and White squad left Neillsville for Owen in cars and arrived at Owen about a half hour before time for the game. The game took place on a field of ice. The field did not bother the 'Owen squad in the least. Neillsville had a lot of backing from ihome, and that helped a great deal, but not enough. The'lOwen team started out 'with a touch down and 'then a drop kick. Then later on in the game Owen made their next and last touch down of the game. Neillsville did not get a point through- out the game thus giving Owen a decisive victory with a score of 13-0. ' 38 -.

DONALD HERIA-N 'Center Donnie in his fourth year of basket ball proved to be one of the best men ever turned out in N. H. :S. He was shifted from forward position to center but this did not hinder his playing. We lose Donnie this year as he is graduating. GIL-BERT OLSON Guard This is 4Gib's first year of high school competition, but he proved to be one of the most dependable and consist- ent players of the team. We will also lose Gib through the graduation path. 1 MARION BRADBURY Forward Babe was one of the few veterans on the team. He was one of the main- stays, and was a great help in stea- dying the team. In losing him it leaves open a forward position which will be hard to fill. CAPT. ELECT WALTER HEMP Guard Adolph. playing his first year on the high school team proved to be a great player. He started the season "t forward, but due to the injury of Zaeske was shifted into guard. Big things are expected of Adolph next year. HARRY DONIHUE Forward Playing his first year of high ,school 'basket ball, Donihue proved to be a valuable player. Due to injuries to the squad he was passedin as a regu- lar and more than held his own. Be- fnfr very short and light, as our en- tire team was this year, Garby was handicapped but his grit offset this and he always showed himself super- ior to his larger opponents. Being placed on the team late in the season his picture was not taken. udiifxiiiifxi-3156152561-'idilflnunuf'a N E W I I I T E ALFRVEND ZAESKE Guard Zaeske, another one of the veterans of the team, was a great defensive guard and also broke into the scor- ing column quite frequently. He was lost at the middle of the season due to an injury. This left a great gap to be filled. Alfred also leaves the team this year due to graduation. RAYMOND SXHAW Forward This is Ray's first year on the squad. He played in most of the games this year and showed a great amount of fight in those which he participated in. Ray has two more years in which to show his stuff. VILA,S B-RULEY Guard "Viley" was one of the few left from last year's squad. He played in quite ia number of the games during the season and alwlays gave every- thing that was in him. Villie's loss will be greatly felt next year. COACWH OLSON Coach Olson during the second year at Neillsville turned out an excellent team considering all of the hardships and losses. It was through his ef- forts that the Neillsville High School made the showing that it did. We hope that Mr. Olson will be with us next year. - A CZl:?.llVl5tDlXl HND VVFIITE Basketball Games N. H.S. vs. Merrillan at Neillsville The first game of the season was on the local floor played with Merrillan. It took some time for the boys to get into their stride, but after the beginning of the second half we scored whenever it was deemed necessary. The fourth quarter :Coach Olson put in his second team and they held Merrillan scoreless. The game ended 21- 3 in our favor. N H. S. vs. Marshfield at Marshfield No doubt the hardest fought game of the season was played at Marshfield. First. one team led and then the other when in the last minute a basket by Capt. Herian and another by Hemp gave N. H. S. their second victory of fthe season. 'Those who witnessed this game say it was one of the fastest and best of the season. When the final whistle blew, we were on the long end of a 13-9 score. N. H. S. vs. Greenwood at Greenwood. For our next game we journeyed to Greenwood to meet the highly touted Green- wood teani. Led by Capt. Herian the Crimson and White played one of the hardest games of the season, and owing to the small floor our team was greatly handicapped. Itcould easily be seen that our boys out-played Greenwood, 'but for some reason oc, other we failed to find the loop. It was Neillsville's first and only defeat of the sea- son. The score was 5-6. N. H. S. vs. .Merrillan at Merrillan. Returning a week early after Christmas vacation, Coach Olson sent his squad, through two weeks of hard practice to prepare for the Merrillan game in that city. Again Merrillan was forced to take off their hat to a better team. The boys fought hard and found little difficulty in scoring whenever they thought it necessary. At the end of the game our boys lead 27-5. N. H. S. vs. Owen at Neillsville. When Owen came to Neillsville the school was out to avenge themselves for the defeat which was handed them by Owen in football. With that in our minds wg went to the game determined to win for our Coach and school. After the first few minutes of play we took the lead and from then on our opponents never threatened to take the lead. The score a the end of the third quarter was 22-4 in our favor. The fourth quarter Coach Olson sent in his second team, and did real well. The fin- al score was 22-9 in our favor. N. H. S. vs. Greenwood at Neillsville . i Greenwood High came to Neillsville with a clean slate, and N. H. S. had been de- feated but once. We were determined to send Greenwood back defeated and it was. accomplished.. Grenwood team never threatened to take the lead and we came through with a victory. Greenwood went home with their clean slate a little bit dir- ty for we won an easy victory with a score of 22-13. 42 . ,.......... . , , ........... , . ........... . ,. . - , , , m-mem.:-.- sw:wmvs-.- N. H. S. vs. Granton at Granton The 'boys left by car for Granton to meet the Granton quintet. As the roads were open he long wait to make train connection was eliminated. Granton put up a real battle. Granton had a light team but their speed made the ,Neillsville squad move to keep them covered. After the game the score iboard showed Neillsville on top with a score of 9-4. N. H. S. vs. Marshfield at Neillsville. Marshfield came over to get revenge The fastest game up to this time was at Marshfield. Marshfield had a team that outweighed the Crimson squad .by several pounds and the Neillsville players found this fact out in a hurry. Ask Gib for partic- ulars. The game was close all the way through and Neillsville was up against a real tough proposition. Neither team had the game won until the final whistle blew. The last minute of play or two won the game, when one of the Crimson players sunk in the one that counted. This ended the close game with a score of 17-16. N. H. S. vs. Granton at Neillsville. ' " Granton came to Neillsville with the usual determination to bring .the Crimson's line of victories down a notch. The home team had control of the ball at any time and most of the time. Neillsville defense held the Granton cagers scoreless much to the surprise of the Granton followers. Granton knew after the game that some one had to lose. Granton has all but one man back next year, so they ought to be able to make the Crimson squad move to keep.up the standing of the fNeillsville squad. We leave Capt. Elect Hemp and his team mates to do up the job in a good manner. Granton made their three points all on free throws and so the Crimson sharp shooters handed them a defeat with a score of 20-3. , . N. ,H. S. vs. Pittsville at Neillsville. I 1 ' . Last year Pittsville came to Neillsville forptheir first time and put up a good bat- tle. This year Pittsville came up strong with a lot of spirit and boosters. They start- ed o'ut with a basket right off the tip-off and started things off with a bang, but they couldn't keep up the pace they had started. Pittsville kept things moving throughi out the game and made the home quint move. Next year Pittsville hopes to come to 'Neillsville and take home the bacon. We will have to leave that to Coach Olson and the team that he will have developed at that time. We hope that Neillsville will en-- large on this year's score of 34-6. N. H. S. vs. Owen at 'Owen The last game of the season was to be played at Owen. The Neillsville quintet was quite badly broken up, Zaeske having left the squad on ac'count of an injury re- ceived early in the season. and Don had the mumps. The remainder of the team went to Owen and played with all the fight and determination that was possible. The Neillsville cagers came out on the big end of the deal 11-10 This game ended the season with 10 victories and 1 defeat, with just the tournament in view. 43 CIF?.llVl5CJlXl F-XND VVIAIIIE GIRLS ' BASKET BALL Although we did not have a girls' High :School team we had class teams whicn were just as much fun.

The After some time the tournament was being talked of and everyone was wonder- ing which class had the best team. The first game of the tournament was between the Freshmen and Sophomore teams. The game was not very exciting, but that was due to the Freshmen girls be- ing a little frightened. The game ended the first half with a score of 18-2 in favor of the Sophomores. The second game was between the Juniors and .Seniors. This gave proved to be a rather lively one, for there were many disputes before the end of the game. The Seniors won by a score of 16-14. The third game was played for championship. It was a hard fought game but the .Sophomores came out smiling with a score of 11-3 in their favor, thus winning the tournament. Although the tournament was over, .basket ball was not so easily forgotten and several games are played in the -Physical Training 'Classes almost every week. ....i.......i.-1- TENNIS TOURNAMENT The first Tennis Tournament in the history of our school was held in May.

However, as time went on, we began to lag on our attendance so Mr. O'.Neill decided! it would be 'better if we would have our rehearsals right after school. This plan seemed to work better, because we have continued with it ever since. - At present there are thirty-three members, but by next fall we ought to have a least ten more. By the way, why don't some of the girls become ambitious and in- dulge in music. We made our first public appearance Feb. 12 in the main room, the occasion being Lincoln's Birthday.

The team met at Madison on November 22 at the Stock Pavil- ion where they competed against seventy other teams of the state. Thursday morning they went to the Stock Pavilion where there had been a Little International Stock Show. This was given by the lboys and girls throughout the state, and this is largely the stock that they judged except dairy cattle and horses which were furnished by the Universiy of Wisconsin. The classes as a whole were rather hard to judgeg therefore, we did not stand in very well against the other sev- enty teams. Nevertheless, Arthur did do pretty well in sheep judging. It seems as though N. H. S. always has some very good sheep judges. After the judging there was a banquet served in the Park Hotel for the boys, and there is where everyone did very welll. K. L. K.

One of their chief aims is to endeavor to live up to their law, which is: seek beauty, give service, pursue knowledge, be trustworthy, hold on to health, glorify work, and be happy. One of the rules of the Camp Fire 'Girls is to earn part of the money needed to 'carry on their activities. They have done this through giving benefit shows and -candy sales. The money derived from these sales will go toward the summers camp- ing trip, which is annually taken by the girls, and toward part payment for the girls' -ceremonial gowns. The girls meet once a week, at whcih time they have a general business program, .after which a social time is had. One of the chief social features this year was a big -Christmas party, after which the girls all went home happy with their exchanged gifts. 52 - . .. . .... . - V .... . ...,. ,,, ,- . - ..

C'Tl1at listens nice for advertising pur- poses, you knowj. But there are to be things not found in all minstrels, such as genuine Hawaiian music, light- ning cartoon drawing, along 'with all the coon songs and coon jokes, and coon jigs. Don't forget the jigs-the Hi-Y is importing a special jigster for the occasion. Watch for the ads in the meantimeg and plan to save that eve- ning for the Hi-Y Minstrel Show. TIMELY TOPICS Guy Lloyd has quit school. The Northup boys had car trouble again recently. Kenneth Smith got a passing grade in one of his subjects one day last week.

HI-Y PUTS ON PRAYER PROGRAM This week, from November 8 to, 1'4, is known as "Prayer Week", so Friday morning the Hi-Y put on a Program giving the purpose and value of prayer.

This not only applies to athletics but to every- thing that the school should -attempt. "Gee, you never can do anything around this old school" is often heard. What is that. If certain individuals aren't always picked to do something with a little honor, it's because they have nev- er shown the rest of the student body and the faculty that hey have any spe- cial talent. Don't knock. At basket- ball games, for instance, or declama- tory and oratorical contests don't say "'What're they trying to do anyway? Drag 'em out". That's not doing any GOOD or boosting the school. You couldn't do as well yourself, or else you'd be right in the front ranks. "Our school is the best school. Everything it attempts, it is fully able to accomp- lish". That's the old spirit". Extracts from fwture "WHO'S WHO" VILALS BRULEY, Age 62.

She takes the money, and her two daughters to the city, leaving the niece. The money is spent foolishly and a letter written to Robert for more. Uncle Bob, however, doesn't like the quick action with his money and tells them to meet him at the farm. He arrives ahead of them, assumes the role of an old negro and is a witness to their shameful, unkind treatment of Rosalie, his niece.

Merritt S-chweinler was the only person who attempted the Speaking Contest. One hour 'before the contest he was given -a swbject which was chosen from some Literary Digest issued during the last three months. His article happened to be on China. As he had no opposition he wias given fthe first place. Merritt showed much ability in his manner of delivery and repre-sentd 'our school at Augusta in this phase of forensics. , V In the Reading, -as in the Speaking Contest, the contestent was obliged to take some story or novel given her by the director of the contest just one hour fbefore the contest and read it 'as best she could. ' Albertine Barton, Ethel Walters and Marie lShort tried .their luck. The judges decision flavored Marie Short -and Ethel Walters second, which made them eligible to 'aattend the District Conest held at Augusta April 23. These new contests proved to be very successful. DECLAMATORY Owing to 'the small number that participated in iDecl'ama.tory work this year no primary contest was needed. Those who entered were Alice Alden, Jessie Brooks, Aniabel Davis and Mable Alden. Anabel Davis who spoke, "The Alien" receiv-ed lst place 'and Alice Alden giving "Over the Banister" 2nd place in the Local Contest, Thursday, April 15-th. Aniabel and Alice spoke .at Augusta April 23rd. The contestants owe much of their success to Misses Gates, Hill and Nelson. , ORATORY , Thursday, April 15th, the Local Oratorical Contest was held at the High School. 'Alfred Z-aeske, Clifford Nelson and Douglas Walters took part. The judges decision was Alfred Zaeske who delivered, "Spartacus to 'the Glad- iators" first and Clifford Nelson who gave, "Lafayette, 'We Have Come!" second. 'These 'two boys represented the N. H. S. at Augusta Aipril 23rd. Credit for the coaching and drilling of thse lboys is due Mr. Hansen and Mr. llmislunid. 60 Cl:L',llX'l5lDIXI fl'-ND VVIAUIEI DISTRICT COMMERCIAL CONTEST The District Commercial Contest of 1926 was held in 'Marshfield on April 12, in which Neilsville entered with nine other towns, Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, Stevens Point, Waupaca, etc., which make up the district. 'Neillsville entered two contest- ants in each of the following contests: Bookkeeping, :Senior Shorthand, Junior and Senior Typwriting and Penmanship. Places were .taken 'by the contestants in Pen- manship, fourth place by Erena Kurthg in 1Senior Typing, second place by Agnes An- dersong Shorthand, fifth 'place by Ruth Wahl and in Bookkeeping, fourth place by Fern Olson. Neillsville High School rankd fourth in the district. iii- THE FRESHMAN SLEIGH RIDE PARTY It all started as usual, the sleigh was half an hour late and the 'last of the bunch came straggling in about half an hour after that. At about 8 o"clock the team left for iSuchow's and- on the way out there was hil- arious excitement. Donald, Alex and Wade came in a small sleigh after the rest of us were there. Mr. Sharp and Gertrude Gress fell off the sleigh and suffered quite serious injuries. I think 'th-at Mr. Sharp was asked to get off or else honorably -discharged because we noticed that he stayed oii' after his fall. At last we arrived at Suchows and made ourselves at home at once by pounding the piano and playing games. After the -games had been :played and the lunch, which was a real dinner, was served we decided it was time to go home and so we went. We all deci-ded that our sleigh ride party was a great success. CHRISTMAS SEAL SALE The annual sale of Anti-"1'u'berculosis Christmas Seals began about two weeks be- fore Christmas this year with Mr. Hansen as manager and Jessie Brooks as student manager of the Campaign. 'The proceeds, which go towrd the maintenance of health centers, have increased rapidly throughout the past few years. The record for the sale in Neillsville shows that the sale has increased from 397.27 in 1923 to 3133.65 in 1924, to 3167.43 in 1925 and to 3244.68 in 1926. The four classes in high school competed for the title of winner in the sale. This coveted honor was bestowed upon the Seniors who outdistanced their lower classmates by a great deal. 61 -3- 352. .- -31 -2' BT22222323 -3' 5?32?2!B'2! -3' 'Cl?.lT'l5CJlXl HND VVIAIIIE LINCOLN PROGRAM ' Lincoln's birthday anniversary, February 12, was :commemmorated by a program held.1n.the high school main room. The program began with the singing of a few patriotic songs by the school. A talk on .Lincoln was given by Mr. Hansen, who showed some ofthe less prominent qualities of Lincoln as revealed in a few of his letters. A few of the winning essays on Lincoln, written by members of the English classes, were read. The school band made its initial appearance at this program. Singing by the school between some of the members lent variety. 4 , The afternoon was -given as a holiday in celebration of the day. ' Among the essays read was one written by Julius Berlin who was awarded a medal by the-Illinois Watch Company whichis given annually to the high school stu- dent writing the best essay on Lincoln. The essay is give below. i - A i LINCOLN WAS NOT A TYPICAL AMERICAN I The typical American parallels Lincoln in a very few ways, if any, in either his fine qualities and ambition or his life. Lincoln was born in extreme poverty, while the typical American is generally born into a home of modest -comfort made and preserved by thrift. Perhaps if times had been different, Lincoln would not have been born in such poor surroudings, but even in that day, I think the average American boy was' born in more security and comfort than Lincoln. . Then there is Lincoln's thrist for knowledge. He overcame great obstaclesg he never became discouragd enough to quit when he was getting an education. lf the typical American boy of now-a-days had toovercome the obstacles that Lincoln had, probably nine out of every ten would go without an. education. Lincoln would never sleep until he had solved big problems or big words that bothered him. He was al- ways thirsting for more knowledge. The typical boy is satisfied to take an educa- tion as it comes, and is glad when it's over with. Many quit before they have a com- plete high school education and still more never get a college education even when their parents are well-to-do enough to provide one for them. ' Abraham Lincoln had an inordinate sense of honesty. The average Ameri- can too, has a fairly strict sense of honesty in big deals but he is sometimes content to leave some small, slightly shady deal rest if it is in his favor. Certainly not many store-keepers today would hunt a town over for aglady whom he had short changed by a few cents. Abe Lincoln was as honest politically as in financial transctions. In kindness few people come up to Lincoln's standard. The story is told than once when Lincoln was going to a party in full dress attire he had to stop his carriage and pull a pig out of mud hole in which it was hopelessly stuck, thereby, spoiling Lin-- coln's evening. There are few young men today who would do that kindly act. Here again Lincoln scores above the average American. Lincoln had power to overcome by words and sincerity the awkward impression ihe made on his first appearance. He convinced people against their will that he was right. Lincoln did not have a convincing voice of an orator, but he had a sincerity that was convincing. ' Show me one man out of every thousand or ten thousand today who has the pow'- orto think or act with Lincoln's preciseness. Lincoln had both these qualities. It is easier to express one's views sometimes than to put these views into being, when thc -chance comes to do so. Lincoln was a great man, but I suppose he had faultsg although, in my opinion he comes closer to being a perfect man than any other in Americanchistory,excepting perhaps, Theodore Roosevelt, who is certainly not more than a parallel. Not that I .mean in greatness, but in character. v . Rather than the typical American I think Abraham Lincoln is the ideal Ameri- can. He is the man whom we should like to have stand as the typical man in Ameri- ca, but he is certainly greater than the average. 62 -3- : :v::::::':: -3- ::v:::v::::: -3- :?:b!?:::v2J -3- L . JUNIOR --- SENIOR PROM The Junior 'Class gave their annual Prom on Saturday, May 1, 1926. 'The table in the lower hall was tastefully and rather unusually decorated in the Class colors, green and white. Miss Connell's ingenious mind furnished the idea. for the attractive place cards. After the guests had satisfied themselves with the deliciously prepared food, and after they had listened to several interesting and inspiring speec-hes made by mem- bers of the faculty and school board, they were ushered to the main room. There amidst the beautiful decorations, which everyone pronounced perfect, they danced to their heart's content. g ' ,After the last strains of the orchestra had floated through the room, the Seniors stating that the evening had been a success, regretfully made their way home, to bear in their hearts a memory of a wonderful time. A V THE FRESHMAN RECEPTION A . This great event started 'at eight and la-sted until ,ten and proved to be very in-- teresting to everyone concerned. It began with ia program consisting- of tricks, jokes- and all the rest of the paraphernalia. When- the program was over, the eats were dished out. These consisted of ice, cream, and wafers, one dish per capita. After all were served, what was, 'left was: left was eaten by whosoever desired it until the ice cre'am freezer was licked c-lie-an and the wafer lboxes were empty. After the frosh were through eating, and even before some were through, danc-- ing began. The music was furnished by the "Wisconsin Seren'ad'ers" and was enjoyed. by all. 'THE SENIOR PARTY On Friday evening, January 15, the Seniors felt as .though it was their turn to. thrust their worthy .hands into the slapti-'tuderous pockets and slowly draw out 35c- The party started about 8 o'clock with Mr. Imislund doing his stuff in manufacturingg thimbles with his ear and eggs with his mouth. About nine o"clock the orchestra. came and everyone danced to his heart's content. At 10:00 ia lunch was served con- sisting of ice cream and biscoes. Everyone danced until 11:00 and then slowly' walke-d home with the feeling, I had such a good time, I wish it could have lasted! longer. E. K.

You never have to re- member datesg and to study for an examination of course is out of the question! That's a lot of bunk-unless of course you want to get an UF". N It was twelve o'clock at night and I was still studying history. "James I ruled from 1603-16259 Charles I reigned from 1625-16403 Petition of Rights 1628, it coin- cides with the Magna Cartag 1640 Long Parliamentg 1642 the outbreak of the Great Rebelliong 1648 "Prides Purge"g Charles I was executed in 16495 1653-58 Cromwell as Lord Protectorg 1660-1685 Charles II reignedg Habeas 'Corpus Act 16795 James II 1685-1688". I had gone over these dates at least six times. My eyelids were droopingg my 'head was as heavy as leadg but I could not go to bed until I had this "Struggle and Restoration" line memorized. The clock struck one as I closed the divine 'history book for the first time that morning and went to bed. William C. Hansen was just coming to the throne. He was a believer of divine right and zvbsolutism. Almost immediately he began to quar- rel with parliament or the student body. The king's attitude at last led parliament to draw up the Petition of rights. Five of the points in this Petition were as follows: "They do therefore humbly pray your most excellent majesty, that no student hereafter be compelled to wash windows, make up time or be expelled from school without the common consent of the studentsg and if the .Spring Fever attacks any pupil he may 'be excused from school until the disease has been curedg and that hereafter the pupils, while in the main room may get up and go out whenever they please-fresh air is good for their health's sakeg and that your Majesty will be pleased to remove the said teachersg and that your students may not be burdened 'by long iassignmenfts. Mr. 'Hansen signed the petition as .the only means of securing parliamentary con- sent for co-operation with the students to keep people off the grass around the school. A few years elapsed and the king was still on the throne, .but he was leading the school back to its old ways and forced cruel punishment on the members. One of his devices to get revenge was to have roll call at the end of the day and those missing were severely punished the next day. But the personal rule of William was now drawing to an end. He wanted to in- troduce high school reforms by trying to make the girls use their hall and the boys go out of t'he boys' door only and he also worked on the whispering project by which he could mia-ke whispering go out of existence. Rebellion quickly passed into the open war. William was forced to summon' the student body in session which resulted in Long Parliament. Long Parliament thus far had acted along the line of reformation rather than revolution. Had the king been content to accept t'he new arrangements there would have been little trouble, but the proud and imperious king was only watching his chance to strike a blow at parliament. War immediately broke out. The opposing parties seemed to be evenly matched. Around William rallied all the teachers and the school board who received the name "Cavaliers", The parlia- mentarians, or the "Round-Headsu were the students. The "Cavaliers" had their camps pitched on the South Side, at t'he end of Main Street. A great wall made of Welbster's dictionaries surrounded their tents which were made of English, history. and Latin books. 72 im-mnw: -2-:w::w::::: -1- w::w:::v:: -2- The "Round--Heads" were to meet the "Cavaliers" on the banks of Goose Creek near the high school. Mr. Olson, the general, of the "Cavaliers" had his army march- ing around town to get them limbered up, although it was a very trying 'and tedious job for him. Echoes of General Olson's voice were heard miles around. l "'Clarence! Stand up straight and walk lifting your knees high." "Get into step", whispered Miss Nelson who was walking beside him. "Why Miss Nelson," shouted General Olson near the condensery, "Can't you ,leave your uniform alone and march up there with Miss Gates?" Mr. Imislund in a piping voice, "My shoe string came open." W'hen .the army reached the North Side, Miss Terwedo exclaimed, "I forgot my handbag." The "Cavaliers" by this time were out near the Indian School when Miss Connell shrrieked, "I left a pie in the oven." I heard a thumping and pounding at the door and mother was calling, "Get up, breakfast is ready!" SEMESTER EXAMS If a stranger had entered Neillsvi-lle High 'School about January 18th or 20th he would, perhaps, have been surprised by the studious atmosphere. So that no wrong impression will be given we will explain immediately what is the cause of this air. - Well, it is semester exams! To anyone who has attended high school that is,, doubtless, sufficient informaion. Semester exams are the dread of the pupils, even the digs. Of course, the Seniors try to pretend they do not mind them and -walk around' with knowing smiles and pitying glances. However, we kno-W better, for some day' we will be Seniors. For the poor little Freshmen we are all sorry, for such frightened expressions' you never saw before. And at four-ten Friday everyone breathes a sigh of relief, hopes he passed and resolves that next year he will not allow the exams to come when he is unprepared.

"Ain't"-G. L., O'Neil St. It is proper to use "ain't", for yesterday while coming down the stair "Red" fSmith was heard to remark, "Imislund ain't fair in giv- ing History examinations." "Have went"-AG. C. S., Division St. "Have went" may be used because our honorable History Professor, Mr. Imislund told one of the History classes that M. Schweinler and "Gita" Olson "h-ave went" home. "Gilt"-A. E. E., Willow St. It is proper to use "git", for while going down the stairs Helen Gerhardt said, "Git out of here, you poor fish". CEvidently some- one was blocking the traffic. "Forgi't"-H. C. G., Willow St. We say that it is proper to use "forg'it", be- cause Mr. Imislund insists that the Senior History classes don't "forgit" to study the catch words. "Supercalopsious"-M. G. K., Grand Ave. We believe that everyone should use this word more than he does since 'Vilas Bruley insist that his girl at Loyal is: Usupercalopsiousn. WP minus forty"-A. Z., Grand Ave. Ycs, we feel that it is proper for you to use this expression, for very often we hear the mighty m-embers of the Senior class- say they received "P minus forty" in Physics. "Them girls"-L. H. F., Fourth St. Very often this expression is avoided, be-- cause the students often 'doubt its correct useg but now you may rest assured that it is proper, for Mary Ketel insisted, "It was 'ithem girls" over there that were doing all the talkingg so Mr. Imislund had no right to change my seat. "Their"-I. V. W., Oak 1St. You may use the word "their" meaning they are, in your composition since we know that Erena Kurth wrorte, "Their still going back and forth to school." "Kuenning"-B. S., Fourth St. Evidently your spelling' of the name is correct, but it is sometimes doubted since Vernie Suckow wrote on his -excuse blank, "Went to Menononie with Mr. Canning". "Sure thing"-R. NW., Grand Ave. This expression has been used since Shakes peare's time. We feel that it can be used correctly for we often hear it said in that matter of fact voice of Marian Hantke's. "Physical Training"-G. M. S., Prospect Blvd. Yes, yours has always been the- correct spelling of physical training, 'but since October 1924 we have begun to, doubt whether it is correct, for at that time Leland West hand an excuse signed be-. cause he was absent from" fiscal training".

This wonderful organization is under the supervision and direction of Mr. O'Neil Chimselfj. You've probably heard of it. If you .haven"t you're hard of hearing. LBut, anyway, I'll further enlighten the tired business man as well as ,the beloved students and co-eds of the activities of the aforesaid band in the last few month. By the way of introduction I will say that .the band fclassed by some as ranking next 'to mosquitoes as ia sleep destroyerj was organized early last fall and .that no one has been 'able to completely annihilate it so far. At first the puvblic in the beau- tiful and industrious city of Neillsville was di-stunbed only once a week, every Wed- nesday night by the deluge of blue, but now the tired housewife faces the music every Wednes-dlay and Thursday afternoons. On th-e afternoons mentioned the mem- bers gather in the much abused shop and pick up skill in the genteel art of handling- ianid blowing different varieties of horns under 'the able direction of Mr. O'Neil. I might also mention here .that skill is-n"t something that grows on bushes to be easily' plucked 'by anyone. Although the band does not own any great and renowned name like the "Twenty Tune Shooters" it has high hopes of a greet future. Not fbeing satisfied with desecrating W'ashington's and Lincoln's birthdays by playing at the High School, the fband swindled the public out of a rightfully deserved rest 'between the acts of the Junior Cl-ass Play and the Opere't't'a "Polished Pebbles". Lest I forget, the aspiring musicians entertiaine-d the grades a couple of times and rendered two or 'tfhree lvively marches at our last basket ball game. No doubt 'these aforesaid marches had great influence in making our score so high. I have now exhausted the past of the Neillsville School Band, and will leave the future for someone else to decide, but before closing I would leave the comforting thought with my dear readers that in due time fthe law will make fit punishments. for all such crimes as schools, bands, etc. J.

THE JUNIOR---SENIOR PROM The Junior Class gave their annual Prom and Banquet on Saurday M-ay 1. 1926. The t-able in the lower hall was tastefully and rather unusually decorated in the class colors, green and white. Miss Connel1's ingenious mind furnished the idea for the attractive pl-afce c-ards. Afer the guests had satisfied themselves with .the deliciously prepared food, and after they had listened to several interesting and inspiring 'speeches made by members of the school board and faculty, they were ushered to the main room. There amidst the beautiful decorations, which everyone pronounced perfect, they danced to their heart's content. After the last strains of the orchestra had Hoafted 'though the room, the Seniors, stating that the evening had tbeen a success, regretfully mode their way home, to bear in their hearts a memory of a wonderful time. v ' G, T, '27 V 83 CIFQUVTSKDIXT F-XND VVIAIITE TAKEN FROM THE ,LIBRARY FILES FOR THE YEAR 1925-'26 These are the books that have been drawn at least twice during the school year by some Junior of N. .H.
