"Howdy, folks! Are you ready to begin the
. tour of the N.T.H.S. Bar Ranch? It shore is a
grand day and the weather is just dandy, so let,s
Q get goin'.
. First we'll see the Ranch Foreman and his
Ranch Hands who are always busy.
. The main stem of interest on a ranch is the
horses, so off to the corrals and the Roundup.
One of the main side attractions will be the
Rodeo. After the sun disappears from the hori-
' zon, we shall gather 'round the Campfire for re-
laxation and hear the Cowboy Serenade.
Last but not least we'll read the Diary of this
. here ranch.
So come on, all of you, as we'uns are all ready
. to go."

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
The Wranglers, consisting of nine members
and their adviser, really "pitched in" and did
their job faithfully this year. First of all, they
supervised the Football Carnival, a grand success
both socially and financially. Next came the Stu-
dent Council Dance. Tommy Roscoe's orchestra
furnished the music and really made the dance
"go over" with a "bang"
This year, as every year, they gave activity
awards to the girl and the boy with the highest
rating, supervised the class elections, and chose
the cheerleaders. The selling of tuberculosis
bangles and the Junior Red Cross membership
drive was left to the Student Council. As usual
they also took care of the distribution of the
individual pictures that were taken here at the
N.T.H.S. Bar Ranch, were in charge of the col-
lection of clothes to be sent to the needy, and the
"March of Dimes." The president, Pete Paesani,
presided at many of the assembly round-ups and
was always ready to help where he could. Indeed,
the Wranglers of N.T.H.S. Bar Ranch have had
a big year.

"Whoa there! We've come to the Roundup now. The Ranch Hands
are worn out as they have been workin' all day long. Just about all of the
horses are settled peacefully in their corrals.

Two-Years-Olds, then the Three-Year-Olds, and in the largest one over
thar are the Thoroughbredsfl

HISTORY OF THE YEARLINGS
On August 26, 1945, fifty-two of us freshmen entered N.T.H.S. At the first class
meeting we chose the candidates for offices. Gloria Kausic was elected presidentg Doris
Polley, vice-president, Delores Weber, secretary, Hazel Smalley, treasurer. The class
sponsors are Mrs. Ballinger and Mr. Myers. At the second class meeting our class mot-
to, flower, and colors were selected.
Early in the year an all-school party was given to Welcome us. The sophomores
did the initiating, the juniors did the entertaining, the seniors did the feeding, and all
we had to do was come. Later the sophomores gave us a party, and we in turn gave
In sports we were represented by E. Poliak, J. Saatkamp, D. German, and L.
Edgecombe. The chorus is credited with 13 of our girls. Dolores Cavaletto and Delores
Weber were our contribution to the All-School play, "The Life of Riley." Two freshmen,
Gloria Kausic and Charles Schweizer, were on the first quarter honor roll.
Let's all work for a very prosperous year as sophomores. D.C.-W.S.

HISTORY OF THE TWO-YEAR-OLDS
Late in August, 1944, we enrolled as freshmen-52 strong. Miss McGee and Mr.
Myers guided us through that year.
In the fall of 1945 We came back, 50 in number. We chose Miss Pircher and Miss
Amyx as our sponsors and elected Jerry Shalbot, Patricia Morgan, and Lou Ann
Schaefer as our officers. Our number was soon increased to 51 when Donald Meisen-
heimer joined us.
In late September the seniors, juniors, and sophomores gave a "Welcome Party"
for the "freshies." At the party We had the pleasure of initiating the freshmen. Our
Harvest Queen candidates were Frances Landers and Victoria Novak. We are very
proud that "Vic" was not only a candidate, but the Harvest Queen. For Carnival Queen
candidates we chose Gloria Bellaver and Marilyn Oltmann. Jerry Shalbot, Bill Pechnik,
Orville Rhodes, Tony Stolsek, John Coady, Harold Schneider, and Paul Vansack repre-
sented us in sports, and Marilyn Oltmann and Lou Ann Schaefer acted as two of the
school's five cheerleaders. Louise Storm and John Short represented our class in the
All-School Play. On February 11, we entertained the freshmen at a Valentine Party.

HISTORY OF THE THREE-YEAR-OLDS
In the fall of 1943, we were fifty-two freshmen just entering N.T.H.S. We carried on admirably
having representatives in music and sports, and we participated in social affairs.
We returned the next fall as sophomores and as the smallest class in schoolg but small as we
were, we entertained, were entertained and did our bit to help the school.
This year we are juniors with forty-one members. We lost four but added four. We chose Mrs.
Gent, Miss Shortenhaus, Ray Johnson, Betty Swaney, Margie Bangert, Eleanore Schneider, Isabelle
Masilonus, and Osmar Lehenbauer to be our bosses. Just to mention a few of our celebrities We have
B. Zueck, G. Zueck, R. Bertolino, L. Warnsing, B. Kirkpatrick, and R. Menin in sportsg Robert Bender,
the movie projector operatorg nine students serving on the "Ojibwa News" and "Old Nokomis" staffsg
two members of the septet, Adell Myers and Adienne Myers, the accompanistg and J. Schneider, L.
Warnsing, and Jim Brackenhoff in the All-School pliay.
We were guests of the seniors at the Senior-Junior Christmas party and hosts to the seniors and
faculty at the Junior-Senior Prom. We presented the successful play, "The Old Crab," and sponsored
the Harvest Dance, an all-school affair.
Since our motto is "The Door to Success Is Labeled 'Push'," let's all push hard for a very
successful senior year.

, A GALLOP OVER THE YEARS
VVe, the Thoronghbreds of '46, started out as Yearlings in '42 with a herd of ninety. Our ranch
bosses were Miss Myerscough and Mr. Rademacher. and our foremen were Coady, Oltmann, Shalbot, and
Thornhill. We were well represented in athletics and the twirling corps, Our outstanding player, Thorn-
hill, won a letter.
After a summer on the range we returned eighty-six strong. This time our ranch bosses were
Miss Cocks and Mr. Rademacherg our forernen were Johnson, Kennedy, Vancil, and Shalbot. An out-
standing year brought us honors as one of our classmates, June Lancaster, was crowned queen. This
year we had four lettermen and the majority of thee majorettes.
Three-Year-Olds and proud of it! Thornhill, Macek, Guidish, Lewis, Paesani, Schaefer-what
would we have done in sports without them? Again we lassoed the royalty-Janet Kennedy was rodeo
queen. Our class officers were the "big four" and Johnson, and our ranch bosses were Mrs. Gent and
Miss Fagan. VVe were entertained by the seniors at a lovely Christmas party and in return we honored
them with the spring "prom."' Now we were ready for our last roundup. 14
We, the best trained Thoroughbreds, seventy-two of us, are ready to round up another long but
wonderful journey. This year our ranch bosses are Miss Yackle and Mr. Rademacher. Our foremen
are Lancaster, Kelly, Johnson, and Lewis. Again we had a fine representation in sports, in music, and
in drarnatics. All good things come in threes, so we had the honor of seeing the third one of our mem-
bers, Gladys Ciberey, crowned queen. We entertained our Three-Year-Olds with a Christmas party, pro-
duced a good play, and completed the year by putting out the best yearbook ever published. So long
everyone! The class of '46 bid all farewell.

To Donald Tooley we will a space on this page for his picture to

"Every ranch is known for its music, and our ranch is no exception.
"The music for this hyar ranch is furnished by the Ranch Band to
which our Majorettes step high and twirl, and the Melody Makers known
as the Chorus, the Girls' Septet, and the Boys, Quartet. The finest mu-
sical show out here is our operetta, the 'Rancho Grande'.

MAJORETTES N.T.H.S. MUSIC DEPARTMENT
, The music department of N.T.H.S.
under the supervision of Mr. Mc-
Gregor is composed of four sections:
The band and majorettes, the chorus,
the girls' septet, and the boys' quar-
tet. The band plays, and the major-
ettes perform at many basketball and
football games. This adds color and
"pep" to the evening and cheers the
players on. The chorus, girls' septet,
and the boys' quartet furnish enter-
tainment for parties, class plays, and
many community activities. The "big
affair" each year is the operetta in
February. From the Illinois District T
High School Music Competition Fes- l
tival held in Highland, Illinois, on
March 2, Mr. McGregor and his con-
testants came home with honors:
Louise Storm, Wilma Smalley, Mar-
gery Coady, and the boys' quartet
placed firstg the twirling corps, the
girls' trio, and Lillian Swarbrick Won
second place, and Jim Brackenhoff,
third. Forty-three schools were rep-
resented in the festival. The entire
music department has done a fine
job this year, and we are proud of l

"LIFE OF RILEY"
What a life poor Riley led! Try to imag-
ine just what you would do if your car
broke down just when you were eloping,
and you left your wallet in your car. Try
to please a newly acquired wife, her
mother, and sister, and at the same time
keep your own independence, especially
the habit of singing each morning before
breakfast. Try to help your brother's wife
find her lost child, and during your ab-
sence force your pal to take your place in
your home as your sister-in-law doesn't
want anyone to know she suspects a kid-
napping. Try to satisfy the curiosity of a
new maid and a nosey neighbor. Try to
imagine the complications that might oc-
cur if a dog is given your name and if a
notorious criminal with a name like yours
is traced right into your home by a G-
man. Try to feature your position hiding
in a trunk when a champion swimmer
comes to have you give a demonstration
of a newly-patented life belt that you have
invented and want to put on the market,
and your pal who can't swim a stroke re-
fuses the demonstration. This is the kind
of life poor Riley led!

It was Commencement time! A career or a husband? That was D0rie's big ques-
tion. Her innermost feelings answered, "Career" Her numerous boy friends said, "A
husband." To earn a career Dorie disguised herself as a boy, but later she made known
her true identity, incurred the wrath of her prospective employer, and chose Bart to
share her life in the little house for which she had drawn plans, Dorie's spry old Aunt
Amity, her moody mother, meek father, would-be glamorous little sister, and four high
school friends all did their part to help or hinder Dorie in making her decision, and all
ended well for everybody.

VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE IN N.T.H.S.
In an effort to provide the community in general with a better understanding of crop production
and its relationship with chemical fertilizers, a rather extensive program of crop variety and fertilizer
comparisons has been started in cooperation with the Litchfield Ag. Dept. Our work with crops recently
won national mention in the December issue of THE AMERICAN FARM YOUTH. ln the February issue
of this same magazine appeared Dwain Hagemeier's picture and his story, "My High School Farming
Business." The magazine offers three cash prizes each month for the best stories of the boys' farming
programs. Dwain's specialty is the production of certified seed soybeans. The "Ag" department is hope-
ful of securing some surplus army machinery which will put the farm mechanics course on a more
The four areas of subject matter in our Vocational agriculture course are mechanics, animal hus-

THE NOKOMIS FUTURE HOMEMAKERS 0F AMERICA
Our club was organized in September under the supervision of Miss
Shortenhaus. We sent Betty Kosko and Gladys Ciberey to Springfield as
our representatives at the sectional meeting of the club in October.
in the fall We prepared and served a dinner for the principals and
coaches of the Midstate Athletic Association and had a food stand at the
Football Carnival. We sold every bit of food that we had which included
forty pounds of Wieners and twenty cases of "pop." Everybody really
brought his hearty appetite along.
Each member 1nv1ted a guest for our valentine party February 14th,
and We had a Tea in May to which We invited our mothers.

Two gala affairs on our Ranch are the Harvest Dance and the Carnival. With the
Ranch House resembling an autumn festival hall the Three-Year-Olds open the social
season each year for all the Ranch Hands with a
dance. At this time a queen is chosen to reign
Their Majesties one year. Following close upon this affair, the
Ranch House changes into an amusement hall
where the members of the entire community join
the Ranch force for an evening of fun and frolic.
The climax is the Coronation of a King and Queen
who rule over the Rodeo.

komis Redskins defeated the Pana Pan-
thers by the score of 12 to 0. This was
one of the season's biggest upsets. No-
komis, playing the best football game of
the year, showed how a small and fight-
ing team with the determination to Win,
could beat a big and heavy team. The
Redskins scored on a pass from Toschak
to Bertinetti. The score at the half was
6 to O. In the latter part of the third
quarter Thornhill ran for 16 yards for a
touchdown to put the game on ice.

tie, 7 to 7. The Arthur Knights scored in
the first half on a long pass. Guidish

the five-yard line. Bertinetti dropkicked

score was Nokomis 19, Shelbyville 0.
Nokomis Wins Again

thrilling game 18 to 13. The Redskins
played a good game against Waverly. The
attack was led by Paesani who made
some brilliant runs. In the late third
period Thornhill passed to Bertinetti for
a touchdown. The Waverly Scotties scored
in the first and third periods. In the early
part of the fourth period Thornhill threw
a touchdown pass to Guidish to end the
Nokomis Loses to Hillsboro
For the first time in four years No-
komis was defeated by Hillsboro by the
score of 37 to 0. This was one of Nokomis'
worst defeats in many years. The first
play of the game was a touchdown for
Hillsboro. After Hillsboro found the Red-
skins' weakness they took to the air and
kept up the air attack to the very end.
Nokomis Loses Last Game of the Season
Nokomis went to Springfield and was
defeated by Cathedral 12 to 6 in one of
the best games of the season. The Ca-
thedral boys were outplayed in many
ways. In the early moments of the game
Nokomis scored but was called back be-
cause a Nokomis lineman was offside.
Cathedral scored in the second half and
again in the third period. Nokomis scored
on a pass from Thornhill to Warnsing in
the last few minutes of the game.
