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.

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 them one. 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. . L.S.-C.B. Fifteen Jwn- -01114, . . . 4 .

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. D.P. Sc A.M. Twenty +f4f-k.7fl0fl01l4h5Md-4-ffxaff MISS YACKLE MR.

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. J.K.-D.J. Twe-11 ty-one Jhnmughbfzeda HELEN ADAMS Dec. 22 "Ojihwa News" Typist and Stencil Cutter 43 Pep Club 3. D'0MINlC BERTINETTI, JR.

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 Jiiiiii-limlililiii'z'lLTiz'i 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 them. B.W.V. Thirty-four ffxfx+f97Zal0dq, ffffff i 4 N.T.H.S.

"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! Thirty-nine ffxaf 'Jz.flaM.Plaq,4ff4 Standing: Adi-ll lVIyf-rs, .lim l4i':1a'k4-'l1l1ol'f, Miss iiflllliiil Amyx rlliri-1-lo1'l.

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 practical basis. The four areas of subject matter in our Vocational agriculture course are mechanics, animal hus- bandry, crops and soils. and farm management.

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.

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. Til Nokomis Ties Arthur Nokomis went to Arthur and played a tie, 7 to 7. The Arthur Knights scored in the first half on a long pass. Guidish went on an end run and started for a touchdown but was called back for being out of bounds. The Redskins came back fighting at the half and Thornhill scored from the 10-yard line.
