During the first semester, our number was reduced to sixteen as Corlinda Eide left school. y ln our Sophomore year, we were minus five more: Herbert Blager and Roger Brommer, who left to assist their parents on the farm: Mary Jane and Dale Owen transferred to Durandg Darlene Paulson, who later became the bride of James Hogan of Pepin. ln the second semester, we lost Darrell Kindschy who transferred to Cochrane. We entered our Junior year as a class of ten. We sponsored the Christmas party and the annual prom. Our prom theme was 'Mood lndigo' with Rube Floyd and his or- chestra furnishing the music. Glenn Schamaun was Prom King and he chose Lois Owen as his Queen. Mrs. Erpelding was our advisor. The following September we found that we had lost three more members, leaving our class with an enrollment of seven. Genesse Paulson became the bride of Robert Brommer: Betty Baader became the bride of Elroy Brommer: Lois Owen transferred to Durand. Our first project of the year was to properly initiate the Freshman class into N. H. S. This was carried out successfully. Soon we had our pictures taken, chose our announcements, cards, caps and gowns, etc. All the things that make the Senior year a busy one. A11 too soon, the year will end and we will have' arrived at graduation day. I The following are present members of our Senior class: Jerome Brunkow, Merlin Carothers, Glen Kimmel, Gladys Rustad, Glen Schamaun, Valoris Schmidlin, Harriet Stoll. We will always be grateful and remember the great effort our parents and teach- ers put forth for us to arrive at this graduation of our educational career. - -Val or is Schmidlin . News of 1966 Mr. and Mrs. Richard Wilson QValoris Schmidlinj are visiting her parents at Nelson for a few weeks with their two sons, Johnny and Al. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Nelson fl-larriet Stollj and their daughter, Vicky Lynn, and their son, Donald, have just returned from a trip to California. It is rumored that Gladys Rustad, a professional dancer at the Stork Club in New York, is planning on coming home for a vacation at Nelson soon. Quite a change from New York! Merlin Carothers and Glenn Schamaun are now engaged in making Hot Rods' and model cars. They recently made a new world record of 267 miles per hour with one of their models. H Jerry Brunkow's marriage license had just been published in the paper. One of his old schoolmates has won his heart. Seems like she was a Sophomore in 1951. 13 Glen Kimmel is now Principal of Nelson High School. I hear that he had laid down quite a few new rules. The Seniors do not have to take English now. --Harriet Stoll Class Will We, the class of 1951, in the town of Nelson, the county of Buffalo, and the State of Wisconsin, being in our usual mental condition, hereby make this, our last will and testament, rendering void and of no avail any former will or wills that have been pre- viously made by us during our four-year period. And in this manner do we dispose of our possessions: To the Junior Class, our rightful heirs, we leave our desks and the wads of gum under them, our teachers, and our books. We also leave them our importance, and our wisdom, all of which we possess in great quantities. To our good friends, the Sophomore Class, we leave our patience. It will be found useful as the only means to endure the Juniors. To the young and green Freshmen, we leave a map of the school building so they won't get lost going from class to class. We also leave them a book on how to get along with the teachers, which no doubt, will come in very handy. To our fellow classmates, we leave the following: INDIVIDUAL WILLS: I, Gladys Rustad, will my pleasing smile to Donna Benjamin. I, Harriet Stoll, will my ability to dance to the struggling beginners. I, Valoris Schmidlin, will my straight teeth to anyone who has to wear braces. . I, Glenn Schamaun, will all my girl friends to--Qchanged my mind - I decided I had better keep them. I, Merlin Carothers, will my money, looks, and wolf whistle to the shy bashful beginners. I, Jerry Brunkow, will my lover tactics to Duane Brommer. I, Glen Kimmel, will my wise cracks to Gerald Reinhardt. CLASS TES TATOR Gladys Rustad 14 5 5 2 , ,A V A V 'MM K M ,wwf A xneemo H r.

He gave us a pep talk on salesmanship and set our quota at 5500, the school to receive a percentage of the subscription money for the activity fund. The student body was divided into two teams, the White and the Green. Captains were selected as follows: Gerald Reinhardt, Merlin Carothers, and Donna Benjamin for the White side, and Jerry Brunkow, Glenn Kimmel and Judy Anderson for the Green side. The Curtis representative promised the five high salesmen each a ticket to a Laker Basketball game in Minneapolis if the quota was reached. The con- test closed September 20th with the Green team winning by a large margin. The high salesmen were: Robert, Gerald, and David Reinhardt, Merlin Carothers and Mary Lou Meier. Magazine Party Since the White team proved to be poor salesmen during the contest, they put on a party for the winners in the High School gym, November 3, 1950. Games and dancing were the evening's entertainment. Refreshments consisting of pie, ice cream, and pop were served. All had an enjoyable time. Minneapolis Trip On January 10, 1951, five boys journeyed to Minneapolis to see the Lakers play the New York Nickerbockers at the Minneapolis Auditorium. This was the finale to the annual magazine contest and these boys were high salesmen. Merlin Carothers, Jerome Brunkow, Gerald Reinhardt, David Reinhardt, and Robert Reinhardt made the trip with Mr. Sobota furnishing transportation and acting as chaperon. They arrived in Minneapolis in time to drive around and see some of the places of interest before eating and going to the game. The game proved very exciting with the Lakers on top at the end. All the boys agreed they had a very good time and would like to take the trip again. Freshman Initiation Once again the day of torture for the Freshmen had rolled around. As soon as the Freshmen reached school, Friday, September ZZ, 1950, the Seniors started painting and dressing them up. When this was over, they were ready to give a performance in front of the assembly. The main event of the day was a mock wedding. Cletus Bauer, the bride: Joan Meier, the groom. Their attendants were Gene Carothers as Maid of Honor, and Addie Breidung as best man. Reverend Merlin Carothers performed the ceremony. At noon the Freshmen paraded downtown with the band. In the afternoon, they were kept busy polishing shoes, counting the books in the library and running errands' for the Seniors. In the evening, a party .was held in the gym where all forms of tormenting was done. When the Seniors felt the poor Freshmen had suffered enough, dancing started. Cake, ice cream and pop were served. The Freshmen went home feeling that initiation wasn't so bad after all. 36 Ch ' Party The Junior class sponsored a very lovely Christmas party in the gym on December 19, 1950. The class had the gym beautifully decorated in Christmas colors with a large decorated tree in the center of the floor. d d in were enjoyed until Santa arrived fMr. Rosendickj and distributed Games an anc g V gifts. A well-laden lunch table stood at one end of the gym floor where all could help themselves. Sandwiches, cookies, candy, and punch, which was introduced for the first time at a school party was enjoyed by all during the evening. Although the party was a lot of work, the Juniors felt rewarded by the fact that everyone had a good time and voted the party a big success. 37 i .., F. F. A.

Last year's champions were Ardys Landsverk and Jerry Lyngdal. The checker champ is Raymond Beck. Mr. Ellis supervises this activity. 38 - WQVMHQ ' fm ,151-Ef,g?, rjx s JA' 'Gigi C ,, xg Xa N kv S' '7- z. 'Q X, K ff .. . N ' 42 ,X X iw mi ,4 X 6' ' Qi? 40 L. BLAGER, G.
