TO ROBERT KOENIGER AND
There are two open spaces in the ranks of the
Freshman Class which are hard to close. The
memory of our two schoolmates and friends, with
their pleasant smiles and Cheerful sincerity in all
their associations, is instilled in us forever.

Those Who Serve
Due to the tireless efforts of Miss Alice Mulroy, many
students of New London have been able to face life with a
much greater foresight and with the ability to overcome any
obstacle thrown in their path. She has moulded and influenced
innumerable lives through her public service. This splendid
work has been accomplished in her twenty-seven years of
teaching, nine of which were in New London. Later she was
called back into public service to work with our schoolboard
for ten years.
And as Miss Mulroy has given her years of service-so are
the boys in the armed forces giving their services and their
very lives that our freedom may be preserved. On every
fighting front and in every corner of the world our boys ar:
performing almost unbelievable tasks, thinking not of them-
selves, but only of us. They are determined to keep the enemy
and the horrors of war from our shores. They willingly gave
their services when the call came. Let us so serve!

Superintendent of Schools
To build all the things we have in America has taken a long time. Our
America is the result of hard work, brains, dreams, and the ideals of
millions of people. You just can't get an America like ours for nothing.
Our America will be kept intact only if we are wide-awake, strong, and
courageous. It is the hope of the Board of Education and myself that each of
you who is about to graduate from Washington High School, and you who
will still be in attendance, will be in a better position to defend America
because of the educational opportunities offered you.

What a year! Never having lteen so be-
wildered and green in our lives before, we
entered this huge abode with these Words
stimulating us "Enter to learn." This we
did or at least tried our best to do.
We almost had a bitter feeling towards
those "know it all seniors" as they strolled
.ny while we struggled with our "coms",
massive pools of perspiration forming on the
floor. lXevertlieless we didn't let them bother
us for we soon lost our inferiority complexes
and were "one of them" at last fwe
We donated a number of our members to
the football, basketball, and track squads
and thus caused even senior lassies' hearts
to flutter. The Band, Mixed Chorus and
G'ec Club caplured quite a few of our miifaia
cal minded colleagues. 'the F. F. A.. U. A.
A., and B. I. A. A. found a nui1ib:r of ua
on their roll, Forensics and debate kept
some of us busy, too.
We shed our books long enough to take
part in the Commando Raid and had ai
Fred Astaire must have influenced some
of our more graceful lot for we actually
saw some of our rookies keeping perfect
Our war bond and stamp sales increased
rapidly, which makes us feel that our first
exciting year has been successful in more
ways than one.

"l'leyl loyce. the style show is next week. Now, we can show-off the new plaid skirts

Well. the Sophomores really fell in line With their U. S. O. Talent Day program with
acrolialic tricks. Hlileanor lfowellzzln. cpeszm rngers, Upadrewskisn, and the "pepsi-cola"

their "Clark Gables" and "l'lefly Lamarrs' fenionstrating their acting ability in the oneaact

"Say, loe, l donlt feel so well. lets Slip school tomorrow." "Tomorrow", answerezl
loc, "are the Semester Exams." "Chl I net it, Aw, clon't be scared: we'll pass." And the
"l5ig Shots" sailed through the tests like the "Quiz Kids," and the results showed that
tlze fieniuses bragged about their names being on the Honor Roll.
Spring rolled along and with it came the happy thought of vacation, girls, and no more
home work. As "taps" was heard in the distance they looked forward with eager eyes to
the time when they would become Iuniors and have charge of the Prom.

The local troupe of Thespians No. ll9 started things off with a "bang" by drawing
up a new constitution and initiating a group of amateurs.
The "stars" sponsored the one-act play contest, giving each class a chance to show its
acting ability. The winning class had its name engraved on a placque presented to the
school by the Thespians.
Under the direction of Miss Schielke, the Thespians presented a comedy of youth
entitled. "Life Begins at Sixteen." The central characters were Paul and Frannie Hollis,
sixteen-year old twins. The mother won a radio contest and with her husband had been
rewarded a trip to Havanna. During their absence, Paul decides the Hollis Shoe Store will
undergo a modernization and turns his talents to the private life of his sister Marjorie
To aid him in these schemes, he enlists the "secret Seven." a society of sixteen-year-olds
ol which he is president.
Officers of the Troupe this year were: Donald Huebner, Pres., Carl Boettcher, Vice Pres.,
Mary Ritchie. Sec., and Treas. Maxine Maxsted.

"Crash" went the cymbols, the flutes begin to
twitter, and all the budding Dorseys and
Iames leaped for their places as another re-
hearsal got under way. Convinced that only
"practice makes perfect," the members settled
back for another session, directed by Mr.
W. B. Wright. The new members caught on
quickly and it wasnt long before we heard
"The Knightsbridge March" being clashed oil
:imply as routine.
Came Spring and able soloists appearegl
lighting for practice rooms as the annual
Music Festival neared. Honest toil was re-
warded once more. Finally, being able to
relax, they did shyly but surely bring out thc

i'Heyl Whos got any rosin?" "Oh
darn, my E string just broke!" "Hey.
Glenna. what did you do with my
music?" Thus did the sixteen members
of our Orchesta convene every Mon-
day, Wednesday, and Friday to re-
hearse their selections. iiThe Serbian
Peasant Dance" was chosen as an eye
operer and all nine violins proceded to
fill the air with fiery music. Piano
chords supplied the hackground as
lovelv melodies floated through the
veniilators into every classroom.
A select group formed an ensemble
and hecame a familiar sight in the en-
tertaininent world. Appearances were
made at the style shows, the plays,
and for various other programs.
Favorite selections included "Th:
Bohemian Girl," "Viennese lVlemories"
and "A Russian Episode."
Several nienihers of the hand organfe
ized a dance orchestra which played
for various dances during the school

The "Home" Front
The Future I-lomemakers association consisting of sixty-live members
was under the direction of Pres., Anna Mae Iagoditsch, Vice-Pres., Audrey
Leppla, Sec., Lucille Harmon, and Treas., Verna Mae Rieckman. This or-
ganization provides opportunities for leadership training and an appreciation
of homemaking as a vocation. As the members progress in leadership and
in their ability as homemakers they may become affiliated with one of the
three circles-candle, home, or flreside.
During the year, the Future l-lomemakers under the supervision of Home
Economics instructors, Mable Nock and Alice Goodrich, held regular social
and business meetings, sponsored two style shows, and entertained the eighth
grade students of the surrounding communities. The girls also contributed
their bit toward the war effort by their Red Cross work.

Bureau of Records
After the first few weeks of school, the "Classmate" staff was selected and assignments
were handed out, under the direction of Miss Iohnson and Mr. Krause. ln due time the
editor and co-editor had planned a war-time book with a military theme. The business man-
ager worked out financial conditions under wartime conditions. The artist went to work
at military designs, while the photographers were kept busy snapping pictures of all-school
events. The rest of the staff worked laboriously over their write-ups to be handed in later
or late! The typists hands then flew over the keys and off went the "Classmate of 1943"

Bureau of Information
The School Daze was started in 1936 as a project of the Iournalism class. Under super-
vision of Miss Krueger, it is published weekly with the purpose of keeping students in-
formed of all school activities.
Sections of the paper contain news of athletic contests, classes, and the various organi-
zations. A. book review column was published to get the students acquainted with new
library books. The Usenior spotlight" characterized seniors. The inquiring reporter Ob-
tained opinions of students on certain questions. The "News from our Neighbors" column
acquainted us with what other schools are doing. And last but not least-the humor page-
which made many a student chuckle. Along with the regular issues, "extras" were produced
with colorful cover designs for special occasions,

Smith, Vice-Pres., Marguerite Gehrke. and beet-Treas., lane Knapstein, assisted with many
of the activities of the school year.

activities and two parties were also given. The one in the fall was a "war time" party
which featured a scrap metal drive, commando tactics and a blackout,

Schulz, Coach Charlesworth,
The first day of school Coach Charlesworth welcomed
forty-five with football suits. Seven lettermen were back to
form the nucleous of the football team, making the outlook .
bright for the season's maneuvers.
The Bulldogs were about-faced in the first game by a
strong Kaukauna team, 13 to O. Our revenge was macle at
the Homecoming game by defeating Clintonville with a
score of 26 to 12. A giant Shawano team beat us 25 to O. all 1
West De Pere tied us by a score of 7 to 7 with a lot of
passes thrown by both teams. The East De Pere eleven
went over the top to win 34-13. The last game of the sea-
son was played at Neenah. Neenalrs homecoming made
them a determined team and we lost this encounter, 13 to O.
Sixteen letters were awarded at the end of the season
and lim Bodoh was elected captain of next year's team. Al-1
though our team did their best, they were hit with hard luck
on their "advances" to the "enemies" front line. -

After a practice game with Wisconsin Rapids, the Bulldogs won their first conference
game by beating Clintonville 18 to 7. Then came three losses: to Kaukauna 23 to 20, to
Neenah 37 to 19, and to Shawano 27 to 23. The alumni, however, found our team too fast
as we won 34 to 21. The next was an encounter with West De Pere in which we won 26
to 12. Our boys were defeated by St. 1V1ary's 21 to 20. but won from Kimberly 41 to 25.
An amazing victory was taken at Menasha by a score of 32 to 26. Then we came back at
St. Mary's by winning 26-25. Clintonville defeated us 20 to 17 in a hard played game,
Kaukauna was beaten 26 to 21, but we lost to Neenah 33 to 27 and Shawano 25 to 16.
Again we defeated West De Pere with a Score of 25 to 23. A determined Menasha team
feat us 33 to 20. The cagers traveled to Shawano for the tournament and defeated Pulaski,
but lost to Shawano and Bonduel. We finished in fourth place. Four seniors-Huntley,
Graupman, Crain, and Pingle ended their basketball careers this year.

Now we have reached the final round, knowing that it has been a successful one, es-
pecially "The Night of Ianuary 16",
