The Class of 39 entered the d1gn1f1ed halls of hlgher learnrng as freshres
1n 1935 We d1d so wtth a record enrollment of 147 As usual we wandered
about as 1f lost However under the able gu1dance of M1ss Ahce Howard
class offlcers were elected Peter Laux led the class for the f1rst lap of the
four to come Many answered the call to school act1v1t1es Some decrded to
try football others were lured to forensrcs Then came basketball and four
boys turned to that Eleven turned to mus1c and Mary Dawson was chosen
By the fall of 1936 our number had decreased to 139 Alan Fonstad
took hrs place at the head of the class We were less pan1cky and certalnly
very hopeful Our pep was exempl1f1ed by our s1x members 1n the Pep Club
Mary Dawson Audrey Dean Evelyn Frrtz Douglas Hanson Iane Huebner
and Douglas Zernrcke As evrdence of our contlnued pep we were awarded
the School Splfll Cup at the end of the year
The 1un1or year began w1th a decrease to 123 but We were st1ll deter
mrned We felt We were 1nd1spensable to the school The Iun1or Prom was
the most outstandtng soc1al event It was planned by Harold Berman Douglas
Hanson Iane Huebner Ela1ne Sa1ndon Mary Saterstrom Eugene Warnecke
charrmen and lack Cole Ruth Sawall Audrey Dean Arthur Davy class
offtcers A deck scene of a large l1ner greeted the many students and towns
people who attended the prom The grand march was led by lack Cole and
We closed the year by aga1n w1nn1ng the School Sp1r1t Cup makrng two
consecut1ve years of und1m1n1shed sp1r1t That year we lost a most prom1s1ng
student Erv1n Bohlman He was a good worker enthusrastlc 1n school GCl1V1
l16S espec1ally football HIS death left a deep gap a frlend had gone
Ah' sen1ors at last' After three years of worktng and p1ay1ng together we
are ready to step out to take our place rn the great w1de world One hundred
f1fteen of the freshles who entered 1n 35 have reached the1r sen1or year Many
of the students 1n our class have been on the honor roll throughout the1r
four years These students deserve no st1nted amount of pra1se for the1r stead
fast 1nterest 1n the1r work and the1r school Deta1ls have been taken care of
and all that remalns IS graduatton Even these plans are under way to
make us full fledged alumn1 on May 29

Our Classmates trs the end of school
The years have reached therr close
Well say our farewells go our ways
For hfe holds no repose
The bell no more shall r1ng for us
Untll we meet agarn
And sweet may our enjoyment be
Between lh1S t1me and then
Our rneetrng here from day to day
Has kn1t us 1n a tre
Of fnendshrp krndness and good wrll
Whlch t1me w1ll sanctrfy
We've labored hard to learn so well
True knowledge we d lmpart
To tram the mrnd rn w1sdom s ways
To educate the heart
We've lard foundatrons sure and strong
On whlch to bulld a hfe
That 1n the future t1me w1ll shrne
And trlumph over stnfe
But oft our thoughts w1l1 backward turn
To the school of our youthful days
Where oft as boys and glrls we met
When l1fe was all ablaze
And oft well th1nk as days go by
Of all our frrends so dear
Our thoughts w1l1 wander back to them
Through every comlng year
The t1me to say last words has come
But as we do depart
Our thanks to you for krndness shown
We glve w1th all our heart
Our separat1ons long or short
There s only one can tell
But what He does IS always best,
We know rt all full well
And now, farewell' The day declrnes,
The sun IS on the wane,
The shadows fall, the curtarn drops,
We break our school days' cha1n

sen1ors Doug Hanson and Walter Thorn at the ends For a set of tackles
they used jumors Wallace Hammerberg and Ray Baerwald Then takrng
Paul Knapstern and Bud Mavrs they found a good pa1r of guards They also
drscovered that Iack Cole managed the center pos1t1on very effrcently Other
boys who drd therr share of playmg were Ken Poppy B Houk I Prahl A

It IS believed that the seniors have done much to make the orchestra
what it is We could almost have a full orchestra with the seniors alone
There would be Hartquist Fonstad and Stern sawing away on the first v1ol1n
parts wh1le our second violins Otis and Cram would be fiddling away at
Turkey in the Straw Our harmony in the string section would come from
our celloist Huebner now and then sl1d1ng up or down to the note she is
seeking with the faint accompaniment of after beats from the viola played
by Ploetz Our flute section would be made up of Dawson with her trills
heard clearly Sanders with his eyes everywhere but on the music listens
to our oboe player Miller as she toots away on the Hoola Dance wh1le
the other players have a grand pause St George tries to play and hold
her tenor sax together at the same time wh1le on her cornet Dean blows
furiously in an effort to be heard Chegwin our percusslon player has
many measures rest Last but not least IS our French horns Gehrke and
Runge bnngmg in their umph pas so they are audible
All make mistakes but we think our sweet notes exceed our sour notes
If the seniors should suddenly drop out what would become of the
orchestra We are sure you w1ll all say it will cont1nue as usual but you
would hear that something was amiss
The underclassmates 1n the orchestra deserve much credit for the xnterest
they have shown and for the1r help rn making the orchestra what it is today
Many of them will deserve the first chair pos1t1ons that they will inhent
next year There they will become seniors and w1ll have the pleasure of
working with other as conscientious workers as they themselves have proved
to be Because of the splendid cooperation of everyone with Mr Zahrt the
group won a first rating at the Music Festival which was held in New London
The orchestra members wish to thank the Band Boosters for their coopera-
tion in making our organization a great success. They purchased a cello
and viola because we needed them.

Each feels a sh1ver from head to toe
he hesrtates and looks around
1 St1ll all the pup1ls are look1 g dowi
Drscuss the lesson she says at last
And at every pup1l a glance IS cast
A name IS called and the heads all rars
On the unlucky student they hx therr gaz
In a lrttle wh1le the class IS done
And back to the1r lockers th students ru'1
Th1s IS the way th days all pass
Gorng from room to room and class to cla s
Another bell and the clock says to go
ell come tomorrow and get some more

A STUDENT S DREAM SCHOOL
Ill tell you what we puplls would do
It we had a teacher s nght rn school
In each class room we d furn1sh a treat
Let everyone s1t 1n the very last seat
Those who l1ked could talk all day long
Throw1ng sprt balls would never be wrong
Sleeprng and dreamlng 1n school s all r1ght
Really all that cant be done at nrght
S1ng1ng and 1unch1ng IS good for one
We hke to see grrls chewmg gum
The Phy Ed class would cont1nue all day
For those who cared to go 1n and play
Hrstory too-a th1ng of romance
Would be lust a date for a show or a dance
The bands own tunes are those of sw1ng
We d teach the students to slng l1ke B1ng
In Engllsh we would teach them slang
L1ke O K Toots or What tha hang'
Subjects w1th geometry s or algebra s rule
Would f1nd no room 1n our dream school
All that IS what we k1dS would do
If we had a teacher s nght 1n school

ROMANCES N OW FOREVERVP 'P
Thrs 1S Walter Wmchell from I C U
To tell of romances rn Washrngton H1gh School
Ill explarn very clearly so youll know where you r
For hrst we see Anne and Vorba 1n a frlendly chat
In some corner are Krng Bud and Pat
Most lrkely havtng another spat
There goes Alrce scootmg down the hall
Look1ng for her Wally so very tall
Now Mane and Paul must D9 somewhere
And there s Kenny and Marrlyn a cute lrttle parr
And there goes Mary and Former Kmg Coke
She ll strck to h1m rf he s dough or broke
The freshmen are by no means shy
A couple worshrp 1un1or grrls and my my
Lrttle Screwball and Sh1rley may be seen
Or hmrny and Marron or Bob and lean
Trme means nothrng to Vrnce and Stern
Harry s1ghs Th1s year I wrsh Audrey d be mme
Any trme of day Valda and Lyle are together
Our basketball hero Spook 1S usually seen w1th Elleen
And another hero Stewre 1S somet1mes w1th lean
Mary may be wrth Bernre another athlete more or less
And Salt once w1th Lo1s then Alrce now guess?
Now Percy has no heart throb
But 1S usually around some gals
And Dan and Eunrce Cla1rrnont and Ethel
Are the greatest of pals
I guess 1t s tlme to srgn off and say good bye
But I could tell you more rt I wanted to try
So you can now forget the romances around here
And Wllh oceans of love Ill be back next year
PLEA TO THE A CAPPELLA CHORUS
O please St Cecelra dont smg qurte so loud
In the mornrng from erght untrl nlne
After Calm Be Thy Sleep I cant get my chem
As for hrstory I cant learn a l1ne
Yes the Study Halls peaceful t1ll frve after erght
Because then you re gettlng your mus1c books stralght
I suppose you w1ll thrnk we ve no cause to complaxn
But your scales and your trllls gxve us all quxte a pam'
' ' , ' ' e at
And Pues changes around-just like the weather.
