The Senior Class of 1944, through this yearbook, has attempted to por'
tray life as it exists in Washington High School-that hidden chapter which
lies between the first frightened day and the final glorious night of commence-
ment. Thus, personalities, classes, activities, and many other phases of
scholastic life are brought out in this volume, in an effort to preserve the
memory of the trials and hardships, joys and successes, which characterize
those happy years.

The crop of freshmen harvested in the fall of 1943 proved to be of bumper proportions.
One hundred and forty-eight strong, these stary-eyed frosh enrolled to set a new high for
dear old Washington High.
These "Frosh" gave to us many illustrious personalities who proved to be outstanding
figures in school life. The so-called "youngsters" were well represented in all phases of
school life, particularly in athletics and in music.
We really must give credit where credit is due: the Frosh certainly have a lot of pep
and school spirit, which was shown by the Freshmen float taking first place in the Homecom-
ing parade with "Victory Weds New London."
We pay homage to the Freshmen because they have so successfully passed the test.
They came through with flying colors. They've passed the days of anguish in which they
didn't know their locker "coms" and how to find their next class with the least possible diffi-
culty. They really did "enter to learn" and having done so they now enter the realm of
the upper-classmen. May they do as much for the school in succeeding years as they have
in the past.

With the familiar sayings of "Look at those scatterbrained Frosh running around," and
'AI-low about a Coke at By's?" the Sophomores entered their second year of work and play
at N. L. H. S.
The Sophomore class has a very high scholastic ability proved by the large number of
students on the honor roll. In addition to being a scholastic group, they are well represent-
ed in athletics and all other extra-curricular activities, not excluding the "Top Hats."
Among the ranks of our gallant Sophs we have numerous speech students. These ener-
getic persons spend their time attempting to learn how to argue the shirt off a Scotchmans
back. Then, too, this up and coming class turned out a very good performance in their
one-act play, entitled, 'AAn Eye For Business."
This class has now passed through the horrors of algebra and biology and the girls now
utter a prayer of thanks that their gym days are over. And so good-bye to the underclass-
men days and hurrah for the Iuniors!

The "know it all" luniors, who will next year occupy the seats now held by the mighty
Seniors, have prepared themselves for this honored position through the year 1943-1944.
Early last fall the football season brought out such athletes as: Bob Ioubert, Carl Bellile.
Marvin Dent, Wallace Bergmann, Ercel MCPeak, and Bob Frank.
Then, too, the following were donated for the basketball season: Ercel Mcpeak, Bob
loubert, lack Lemke, Clifford Cverndt, and Edward Iagoditsch.
The Iuniors also did their best in dramatics and Forensics. Iim Cristy and Margorie
Breitung making up a debate team. Three luniors were initiated into Dramatics.
Last, but not least, the music department was favored with: lim Cristy, Neva Kuppernus,
Lois Linberg, Gloria Fisher, Delores Smith, Gordon Rusch, lack Lemke, Vernon Voltz,
Ioyce Krause, Maxine Gaddis, Eugene Krause, and Valois Krueger.
As in previous years, the problem was the prom. After much discussion they finally
came up with the theme "Apple Blossom Time." Many hours were spent making apple
blossoms and painting a picket fence. Harold Ferrons orchestra was engaged for the prom.
Because of a slight deficiency in the treasury, the luniors sponsored a Sadie Hawkins
Day Dance with the added feature of a basketball game between the faculty and the Iuniors,
We can truthfully say "the luniors did 'Enter to Learn', and will 'Go forth to serve'."

Thc Thcspians is the National Honorary Dramatic Society for high schools. The aim
of the Thespians is to create a spirit of active and intelligent interest in dramatics among
boys and girls of the secondary schools.
The Thespian Troupe of our school, Troupe 119, guided during the past two years
by Miss Schielke, is an organization of which we can be proud, On February 24th this
chapter presented their annual three-act play, entitled "Papa ls All." The oneaact play con-
test in which all four classes participated, also was sponsored by this organization.
One of the highlights of the activities of the Thespians this year was a beautiful and
very impressive formal initiation, held in December, in which thirteen new members were
admitted to the Troupe.
May the traditions of the Thespians live on in years to come and may all future mem-
bers succeed in upholding the Thespian motto-i'Act well your part-,Therein all honor lies."

"PAPA IS ALL"
The play, chosen by Miss Scheilke, the director and troupe sponsor, was one of tre-
mendous originality. It was of a type which had never been presented on our stage before,
and we must give credit to the cast for the fine job they did with it. There were only six
characters in the entire play, thus giving major roles to every member, which they portray-
ed with perfection. The play was written entirely in Pennsylvania Dutch dialect. lt was
the story of a family which was ruled by the iron-hand of "Papa". Kept from modern in-
ventions and their own personal freedom, they grew rebellious. Papa is "accidently killed".
but in the third act mysteriously returns to the dismay of all. The Hpoleece-man", comes
to the rescue of the family and takes Papa oil' to jail, so all is well with the "Aukamps".
Eeninr Class Play
After weeks of screaching their lungs out, hitting each other with stove-pokers, and
opening closet doors concealing dead bodies, the all-girl cast was finally ready. due to the
coaching of their director, Miss Thompson, to give their final production of a blood-curdl-
ing drama, "Nine Girls". The cast was a most unusual one, but one of extreme ability.
The story centered around a girl of an unfortunate background and who had been taken
camping with some of her sorority sisters of considerable wealth. Murder stalks the cabin
and the climax was one very surprising to an audience of nearly 700 people.
The cast of characters for "Nine Girls" is pictured on the next page.

All Schnnl Play
"EVER SINCE EVE"
The curtain was drawn, Nlarch 30, to reveal a newly constructed office of a high
school newspaper, "The Penguin." The plot evolves around the typical example of an editor
of such a paper. l-le and the rest of the masculine staff are oblivious to the whims of the
weaker sex, but not to those of a "Southern Belle" who is a new arrival at their school.
However, as the story deepens and the difficulties expand, the fair "femmes" are found to
be the most reliable. Outside of an epidemic of measles, and illegally operated pin-ball ma-
chines, everything turned out to the best advantage of everyone concerned. Between the
second and third acts, flowers were presented by the cast to the director, Miss Thompson.

The song birds of New London High School have practiced diligently and strenuously
under the guidance of Miss Dorthy Edkins. While the soloists worried over their tone
quality and pitch, the rest of the chorus practiced their harmonious chords until the thirty-
seven voices blended as one. An outstanding event in the years activities was the presenta-
tion of the Christmas Concert which was held December 14.
At the beginning of the second semester the Girls' Glee Club was organized to carry
the work begun by the Mixed Chorus to a successful close.

Archery and soccer opened a new season which was to be cramed with fun and spirit
for all G. A. A. girls. When winter threatened the soccer field, things began to happen on
the basketball court, with Mshootu and "steps" becoming the passwords. Soon bowling got
under way, with a well-balanced diet of strikes and gutterballs. The evening of April 21.
found many of the girls doing a fine job of displaying their talents in Gym Night. Balmy
spring breezes brought several teams onto the softball field, where a very successful season
was brought to an end.

The N. F. L. fNational Forensic Leaguel is to high schools what Pi Kappa Delta and
other honorary forensic societies are to colleges and universities. The work of the N. F. L.
is to provide the incentive for 'itraining youth for leadership."
The first place banner appearing in the picture below was won by the New London
chapter at the State N. F. L. Debate Tournament. This is the highest honor any chapter
in the state could win and one of which New London can well be proud. The affirmative
team in this tournament was composed of William Fitzgerald and Glenna Murphy, and the
negative was supported by Lorraine Ieffers and Ieanne Gaddis. Charles Mattka was alter-
nate. Mr. W. F. Donnelly is the N. F. L. Chapter sponsor.

ning ll out of 12 debates. Later, at Merrill. they tied for first place. Next, at the tourna-
ment held at Wisconsin Rapids. they repeated their tournament success by again tying

ing them eligible for the State tournament at which they took third place. Perhaps the most
outstanding piece of work accomplished was at the State N.F.L. tournament held at Mar-
quette University, Milwatlkee, at which the teams tied for first place, something New

The "School-Daze" is the bi-monthly publication of the high school journalism class.
under the direction of Miss Krueger. The "School-Daze" is edited by Dorothy Giebel and
George Hanlon, and some of those amusing cartoons found in the various copies this past
year were drawn by Bonnie Lercher. Copies of the paper are distributed throughout the
school through the energetic efforts of the members of the staff.
This organization has proved very beneficial to the school in that it has brought our
students in contact with the activities of other schools through the exchange system em-
ployed, and has improved the morale of the servicemen by the copies sent to them.
May the "School-Daze" continue it good work and produce many Hbudding young
lournalistsn in the future.

Then the time came. The first game saw the Bulldogs out on top, 18-O, against Neenah. The blocking

ln future years, when you are alumni and are looking in retrospect at your high school days. one ol the
most memorable items will be the success with which the basketball team of '-l-l met.

New London would finish in the upper division. Few foresaw the culmination of the season at Nladison in the

Track and Field
The New London tracksters have high expectations for "44" with one letterman, other
experienced boys. and the supplement of some good "green material". It will be hard to till
the shoes of such able boys as Don Kringle, Bob Rossey, Leon Graupman, Don Crain, and
a host of others who carried the Bulldogs banner on high last year. But with Louie Stern,
Carl Bellile, Marv Dent, and lim Bodoh as a nucleus. the outcome should not be down-
There are four meets on the ledger for this year. They are: A dual with Clintonville, a
triangular with Waupaca and Menasha, the conference meet, and the District at Appleton.
Maybe some of the boys will be good enough to qualify for the state meet.
Track is by far the best body conditioner of all varsity athletics and requires as much,
if not more, stamina as any other type of athletic activity. Mr. G. M. Charlesworth is
coach of track.

GEORGE HANLON IEAN PRAHL DOROTIIY Bounm SYLVIA RLINGE
The scene was Washington High School in the year 1940, and wide-eyed freshmen
were trying frantically to lind the hidden process that would open their lockers. Ahh, how
far we have come since that day, four long years ago. Even as frosh we began setting the
standard which we have followed during this time, To the astonishment of our A'elders",
the freshmen produce the "B" team of the debate squad, and took first place honors in the
one-act play contest.
As sophomores, we contributed a large number of "men" to athletics-men who later
excelled in this same field. It was at this time, too, that the young Romeos and Iuliets began
taking part in the major dramatic productions offered by the school.
To our great surprise, our class, as Iuniors, took first place among the Homecoming floats.
But the spotlight points with pride at the truly spectacular event-the Iunior Prom-made
especially beautiful by the Statue of Liberty rising above all else, and the large American
flag looking down from the ceiling.
llow often the scene has changed since that Hrst day in 1940. Now we are seniors. and
our class has been slightly depleted by those serving their country. But by this time, we
have added a large number of attainments to the rapidly growing list. An excellent debate
squad was composed of seniors: the "first five" on the championship basketball team were
seniors: and many of our seniors took high honors in forensics and music during the Spring.
Yes, our days have been successful ones, but all too short.
It is our fond hope that the Senior Class of 1944 will never be forgotten.
