Educational growth like city growth is de- pendent upon continuous development. A city may have passed from the period of enterpris- ing frontiersmen to the stage of contented re- tirement. Attending the growth and develop- ment of all life, individually or collectively, there is the maturing process. The fully ma- tured animal or ripened fruit ceases to develop Many of our revered institutions and pioneer communities have been so completely matured that contentment supplants progress. The youth of today matures very rapidly and very early. This early maturing progress frequently feline quishes the motive of sustained improvement. Instruction stimulates and guides the learner, but only etfort and study develop the individual. Massage cannot be substituted for experience. Neither can instruction be substituted for study in attaining an education. Graduation should not be allowed to adjourn our efforts of growth lest we be like the prematurely ripened fruit. This yearbook has been dedicated to the spirit of the pioneer. It is a Fitting ideal for an out- standing group of young people, This spirit is essential for every generation in every forward looking nation. lt enabled our grandfathers to conquer a continent. It stimulated our fathers to delve into the mysteries of the physical sciences and to bequeath to us a marvelous machine age. Our generation must utilize this spirit to make man master of his machines rather than vice versa. Our present pressing social problems-such as abolition of war, law enforcement, the capital and labor strife-cannot be solved by an "it never has been done" attitude. All those noble qualities of vision, courage, creativeness, faith, strength and determination-which embrace the spirit of the pioneeremust be called into play. The need for the pioneer in America has not passed.

School, being of a sane mind and with a perfectly legitimate and sincere motive in view, do with positive reverence and solenmity bequeath to the junior Class of 1930 all our earthly claims heretofore entertained on the following principles of divers moral ethics and idealistic quali- ties of human character. The aforementioned party may take full and complete possession of the above be- quests only when our not-to-be-criticized principal and godfather, Mr. Falk, ceases to refer to our beloved advisor, Mrs. Florence Donahue as Miss Klenert, when addressing the assembly. lvVe now proceed with the bequests: 1. To Anna Harried, we bequeath Ralph Atkinson's great, big, beautiful feet. 2. Ulaf Roe asks that his bombastic bass voice be left to Norris l,inderud, 3. Bjarne Romnes leaves his derby and cane to Mahlon Kroener. 4. To Bertha Aslackson we bequeath Harriet Hales back number of f'VVhizz Rang." 5. Martha Kvalheim and Hennrika Skaarness leave their knowledge of the deaf and dumb language to Martin Toay and lloward Ehle. 6. To l.ars Kaupanger we leave Alf Christenson's powerful physique. 7. Mary l.ouse Hermanson leaves her "lint and Grow Thin" volumes to Kath- erine .-Xlexson and Robert Chase. 8, To Donald -lohnson. we leave an old pair of overalls belonging to Malcolm Stogdill. I...g.- in 0. Verna l.uraas leaves all her "old flames" to Margaret Nordlie. 10. "-loe" Onsrud leaves a lock of hair and a couple of pansies to Elizabeth Long. 11. Dorothy Anderson bequeaths all her "old lady" parts in school productions to Roberta Smith. 12. To anyone who is honest enough to admit they need them, we bequeath some of llhil Klaesson's brains. 13. Mary Bjoin bequeaths 2,000 gum wrappers to be used as a first payment on a Shetland pony, to Vvilbur Keegan. 14. Dorothy Hatzinger leaves all of her "it" to George Schuster. 15. Clarence Yttre bequeaths his ex-- tensive vocabulary to Hazel Bratvold. 16. To Harriet Kvalheim and Nancy Kliristenson. Ruby and Mayre leave their ratings on the Edgerton social register. 17. Mary Hale leaves her love for the 8 o'clock schedule to Gregory Anderson. 18. To Elsie Felland, Clarence Nicho- last bequeaths his quiet reserved nature. 19. Garfield and Florence leave a cou- ple of secrets with the study hall clock and l-larriet Larson and Henrietta Ons- rud wish to make it known that if they have anything that anybody wants, those wishing something may call around and try and get it. ln conclusion. we leave our heartiest congratulations with all members of the school administration with whom we have come in contact. Their broad- mindedness and tolerance has been posi- tively remarkable. They have made us what we are today. Xvondrous indeed, are their works. irry two beninr Qres TC -as Class Prophecy of '29 The words which follow on this page are thereby placed with one cardinal ob- jective in mind: that being to take you away from our little hamlet on the magic carpet of imagination to that mystic realm of spires and minarets for a briei' glimpse into the dark and forboding fu- ture. The following came about thus: Being cast in the role of prophet of the Senior Class by the powers that be, I thrust my fears behind me and with my mission well in mind I left post-haste for the four corners of the earth in search inf light into the future. It was at the court of the Sultan of Persia that my guest was unexpectedly terminated. Here I seized upon the op-- portunity of gazing into the gracious Sul- tan's far-famed and all-knowing ball of crystal. As I peered into the magic sphere, unforeseen events appeared be- fore my vision that were wondrous strange. My eyes filled with awe as I beheld my own classmates in their every- day pursuits of twenty years from now. According to the ball, which I whole- heartedly take as being authentic, this is what is to be: Alf Christenson is editor of a joke magazine: he got his experience on the Yahara. Bjarne Romnes is a big lawyer. He's knocking the juries dead with his VVeb- ster-like oratory. Inga Sivertson is a cigarette girl in a Chicago Cabaret. They can't resist her vampish methods. Phil Klaesson is barking out com- mands at VVest Point. He is a hard-boil- ed top sergeant there. lfrank Currier is peddling fish. llis herring is of the best grade. Dorothy Hatzinger is President of the W. C. T. U. Prohibition is here to stay. Johann Onsrud is a missionary in the Far East. Yes, Dorothy is still with him. Olga VVigsmoen is an artist's model in New York. Her specialty is Venus. "Tessa" Halverson is leading a choir in a big church in Boston. Harold reels off a mean hymn. Ruby and Mayre are teaching school in Edgerton. They like their location very well. Mathew Gregerson is Champion Flag Pole Sitter of the VVorld. VYe always knew that Matt would come through. Mary Bjoin has gone in for dramatics. She's known as "Anierica's Sweetheart." Clarence Yttre is in jail for selling "phony" oil stock. Clarence's slick ways caused his downfall. Martha Kvalheim and Henrikka Skaar- ness are a dancing team in a New York night club. They're said to be a wow. "Shorty" Nicholas is a teacher in a school for the deaf. He seems to be hap- py in these quiet surroundings. Elsie Onsrud has gone in for cattle raising. One of her calves recently cop- ped national honors. Herman Gjestson has taken Mr. lialk's place as principal of Stoughton High. He makes bad boys mind. I.eobelle Hagen is private secretary to the President. They say the I'resident is always happy when he goes to work. Harold Gerard has made good as a pitcher with the Yankees. They can't hit 'em when they can't see 'em. Mary Hale has a job as Ifat l,ady in a circus. She's attracting thousands. Harriet Hale is preaching on the evils of modern youth. She has already res- cued hundreds of wayward souls. Boris Schuster is director of the Chi- cago Symphony Orchestra. Millie Staff and Beatrice jensen are conducting a modiste shop on Broadway. They now set the styles in place of Paris. Malcolm Stogdill and Garfield Thorpe are touring the country. Thorpe is the middleweight champ and Stogdill is his manager. Florence Rowe is cooking at the Eat- more. Her hash is delectable. Austin Holtan is head football coach at Stoughton. His team soundly trounced Edgerton. It was at this point that the crystal be- cade clouded and being unable to see more I hastened back to my native shores with the precious information which I have disclosed at this time. page thirty-four Junior Class Oflicers Vl'CSifll'!lf ,,.. ,.. ,A v,,f'ctL'1' Yea Yicc Prcsirlcnt ,,,,,.

The Prom was a tremendous success. Vthat more could we ask for? Of course the greatest asset to our banner year was our most worthy and dependable advisor. Miss johnson. She not only fulfilled her work as leader but did a great share of the work. VVe wish to thank her for her whole-hearted co- operation and help. Our tirst class meeting was a fast one and we stepped forth with a clean slate. Peter Yea was elected President. and Oscar Olson was elected Vice President. Christine hlenson, a former office holder, did her work as Secretary with ease and also helped with the Treasurer's job. Dorothy Carpenter kept the Treasury books without mishap and we feel that none could have done better. In fact all the officers went at their jobs with the idea they would work for the welfare ot' the class and with a prestige fitting their jobs. The nrst big doing of the year was the class play, given at Christmas time. Miss Gregerson directed the play and she worked hard with us, so that we could have a Prom. Wie wish to thank her for her generosity in giving her time to the class. The "Youngest" was put on in the Auditorium on December 18th with Ingolf Turnio and Elizabeth Long taking the leading roles, which they did with ease fitting only professionals. The other members of the play were: Constance Olson, john Mcliercher, James Scott, Anna Harried, Dorothy Carpenter and Ardith Dersch. The play was not what we might term a financial success. be- V i ., , , . A . Juniors J J ' ' is ' o Q in 1 - .Q i . in . V e . . . . .

Having surpassed the "green stage" of the 'tFrosh" and not having attained the indifferent attitude of the Juniors nor the superior attitude of the Seniors, we were in the prime of our career and determined to make the most of our abilities. Realizing that we could accomplish nothing without first being organized, we elected Harry Kirby, president: Louise l.3.I1g'6lI1O, vice-president, Mildred Ons- rud, secretary, and Inez Hanson, treas- urer, Then, with Miss Haven "to guide our footsteps," and later Miss Bentson, we were ready to start a Hbooming year." Now, after reviewing the events of the past year, we feel that we deserve some credit for our efforts. In football, Olaf Sundby. Orlin Ausse. and Gerry Halverson were our Ubright, shining lights." Howard jones and Orlin .-Xusse proved their worth in basketball. Our Girls' Basketball team was a 'gspunky bunch," and, even though they didn't win many games, they never gave up without first putting up a hard fight. All in all, our class has shown some remarkable athletic prowess. As for our intellectual abilities-well, never before has a Sophomore class had five of its members on the real Debate Squad! Frederick Henderson, Katherine Halverson, Muriel Larson, Virgie VVall- ing, and Mildred Onsrud represented our class in this activity. Alfred Olson and Frederick Henderson were chosen as representatives in Ora- toryg Katherine Halverson and Arline Criddle in Declamatory. Even now we are ready and eager to "cop that cupf' Because "all work and no play makes jack a dull boy" we have made it a prac- tise to take part in social activities, also. Therefore, we are well represented in every club in the school, page forty Row lfllyrold. l.. jolinson. Jacobson, l,:illy. Xorst-tier. jones. Olniam. x. oim. E. oism, xi. 1.fim,.i. Row 2-O.

Treasurer The Athletic Board is for the purpose of superintending and managing all ath- letic concerns in our high school. lt en- deavors to create an interest in athletics which will benefit the entire school. The principal, the coaches and captains of the school sports. the G. A. A. advisor and president are all automatically on the Board, lloweyer, each year the student body elects four students who complete the Board, The president is elected by the student body: then the other mem- bers elect the three remaining officers. lt is also our duty to co-operate in de- termining who have fulfilled the require- ments for earning the letter S. This year we haye introduced a new system of inter-class basketball. ln or- der to eliminate the old feeling of enmity between the second team and first team Dorothy H atzinger .,,,,,Elizabeth llrotning ...,,.Harriet Hale ,,,,.,,,,Ulaf Roe of the various classes, we have put the teams on an equal basis for the trophies which are awarded to the class repre- sented by the boys' and girls' teams with the highest percentage. 'lihe Senior boys and the Senior girls won the trophy in their respective leagues. Another interesting enterprise staged by the board was an interclass skating tournament, which uncovered a crop of young skaters with a great deal of natural ability. NVith the support of the student body and the enthusiastic backing of our townspeople, we have succeeded in bringing an unusually successful finan- cial year to our school. page forty-nine 'ss S Football Staff The football team had a successful sea- son, despite having lost several main- stays from the previous year's team. Coach VVilke, ably assisted by Ray My' rick, turned out a team made largely of green men that came through the season with very creditable showing. 'fEarl" and f'Ray" showed their superior coach' ing ability by developing players out of such men as Alf Christenson, Harold Christianson, lngolf Turmo, and Harold Thorpe, who had no real previous ex- perience. Rain or shine, these men were out there with the boys, giving their best to make a good team out of them, and succeeding. The practice sessions were long and hard. sometimes in two or three inches of mud. and sometimes on the cement-like dried mud of the Ath- letic field. but the boys came out every night and practiced faithfully. Another big factor in the success of our team this year was the line work of Malcolm Stogdill as manager. Malcolm was faced with the difficult job of filling the shoes of the capable Randecker twins, but he accomplished the job in a manner which would do anyone credit. Garfield Thorpe, chosen captain of the team last spring, lived up to all hopes and expectations and provided the spirit and light that every good captain must be able to instill in his team-mates. One more thing we can't forget is the splendid work of the Athletic Board in taking care of the financial burdens of the team. The greater share of the credit belongs to the business manager, Olaf Roe, who did the most work and worry and carried the most responsibility. page fifty l Row 1-Mr. XYilke. Ness. Halverson.

The team came through with three wins, two loses, and a tie, to hnish in third place in the new conference, the Southern VVisconsin Six, consisting of Stoughton, Edgerton, Monroe, VVatertown. University High, and Fort Atkinson. ln the Jefferson game, one of the two non-conference games of the season, the Purple warriors were at their best. going through Jeffer- son line and around their end at will, and winning by a score of 19 to 6. How- ever, it was in this game that Turmo in- jured his leg and left us with a hole to lill at his end for some time. Injuries were frequent occurrences and handicap- ped the team badly. Sundby received an internal injury in the Fort Atkinson game and was out for several games. "Bobby" liverson hurt his hip and Alf his knee in practice sessions, while John McKer- cher hurt his hand in the game. Had it not been for these injuries, Stoughton probably would have stood still higher in the list. Captain "liar" Thorpe. playing his last year of high school football. led the team well and kept up their spirit and fight. The burdens of the captaincy did not lower the standard of his personal play- ing, for brilliant snatching of the ball from all parts of the zone on aerials still remained a mystery to opposing teams. and his low tackling was a thing to XVOH- der at. "Gar" finished his football career in a blaze of glory. Regretting his loss as we do, neverthe- less, we feel that Captain-Elect "Greg, Anderson can Fill his place and lead next year's team through. we hope. a still bet- ter season. Prospects for the team next year are bright, since there will be left seven letter men-Turmo. Ausse, Mc- Kercher, Harold Thorpe, johnson, Sund- by, and Anderson, together with lots of promising new material and numeral ITICTI. page Mty-one T, page Football Robert Everson--Fullback Bob was another valuable man to have in reserve. He was a good passer and blocker and carried the ball like a professional. When Sundby was laid up, Bob stepped in- to his shoes and proved his worth. Boris Schuster-Tackle "Budda" was another green man, but his everlasting light and spirit made him a re- spected and a feared opponent to all the op- posing men, Backs and ends steered clear of his iierue tackling and blocking. Orlin Ausse-Tackle .Niiother very important cog in the ma- chine built up by VVilke was Ausse. Ausse's natural ability. aided by his 180 pounds of muscle, enabled him to open holes for the backiield men in almost any line. Harold Christianson-Center This year was "I-lella's" first year to re- port for football, but VVilke discovered in him a center of the first water. His steady passing and hard hitting defensive game kept the backheld from worrying about his end of the game. Frank Currier-Quarterback The responsible position of quarterback was held by Frank Currier, a heady Held general with an eye for weak spots in other teams. He also proved a good ball carrier in his numerous and unexpected quarter- back sneaks. Alf Christensen-Guard f'Christy" playing his first active year of football, showed all the other teams some' thing new in speed, both on offense and de- fense. As a blocking interference man, he had no superior in the league, and was se- lected li 'en. for a berth on the All-Conference tifty-two Football Gregory Anderson-Halfback The king pin of the offense, 'fGreg's" dazzling speed and wonderful side-stepping simply couldn't he equaled. "Give Greg the hall l" became the slogan of the rooters. His extraordinary ahility gave him a place on the All-Conference Team also, giving Stoughton two representatives on the myth- ical eleven. Ingolf Turmo-End "lug" developed into a wonderful defen- sive end this year. The way he threw him- self into the opposing interference men was a sight worth seeing. An injury to his knee incapacitated him to some extent during the latter part of the season, and he was sorely missed. john McKercher-Guard -Iohnnie fulfilled expectations and came through in great shape this year. He was a hard-hitting forward wall man with plen- ty of fight and "guts" Scotch, as his name suggests, he lived up to his nationality's reputation, and refused to "give" an inch. Olaf Sundby-Halfback "Ole" is another man with a couple of years of playing ahead of him. His speed and snakiness enabled him to dash through the line continually for good gains until an internal injury put him out of the game for some time and bothered him all season. Donald johnson-Halfback "Don," alternating at half and end, proved a valuable utility man in either position, filling the end position, left empty by Tur- mo when "Ing" was injured, in a very satis- factory manner and performing well in the back-held also. Harold Thorpe-Fullback Another green man, Thorpe, proved him- self worthy of his name, which is synonym- ous with "athletic ability." His accurate passing and kicking provided something to fall hack on in time of need. The coaches can he thankful they have a man like him remaining for three more years. page fifty-three Football Games Lake Mills ln the first game of the season between the two agefold rivals a score of 13-6 re- sulted in a game featured primarily by fumbles and penalties by the proteges of Coaches Vvilke and Myrick. The locals reeled ofif a yardage game from the line of scrimmage nearing 400 yards, and com- pleted 7 passes, In short, it was a lop- sided affair. Fort Atkinson The next Saturday the Purple and XYhite waved bravely over the field of Fort Atkinson while her staunch sons battled fiercely to overcome a pair of obstacles in the form of the Fort men and misfortune. ln yardage gain and all around form those from the banks of the Yahara excelled. The score seems to show otherwise, ending in a l3-6 defeat, Wisconsin High The following week-end the VYilke men crashed through, to the Badger preps grief, to the tune of 13-0. Wiisconsin High started out in a grand manner, but they soon lost their importance, the last half being a series of retreats toward their own goal, however, the score, de- spite that, remained close, since the Bad- gers became desperate on several occa- sions. Monroe The following Saturday the giant, but hitherto unsuccessful team from Monroe, battled with Stoughton to a dead-lock. Assault after assault was launched and repulsed in succession by each machine. The Stoughton forward wall functioned smoothly and the back-field was its stel- lar self, but it had no effect whatever on the inspired cheesemen and the game ended in a 7-7 tie. Jefferson A hapless team carrying the hopes of jefferson met the attack of a purple team out for vengeance. The baffled enemy were at the short end of l9-6 marker after the fury had spent itself. "Greg" Anderson continued his unprecedented ball-toting with the aid of the rest of the agile and hard-hitting backs. Edgerton After two weeks' rest the NYilkemen met Edgerton in the Homecoming game. Feeling and confidence ran high before the game. XYe were sure that the age-old lndian sign which Edgerton has held over Stoughton teams so many years would be broken, but VYallmow and R. Miller of the Trailers deemed it otherwise. The Stoughtonites were way oft form, and the game ended with Stoughton on the short end of a l3-O score. page nftyvfonr . 1 0 aan, rail-mlm, lyme. caafii ily,-me ie nson cm-I-at-f. '1ih.if,w. wa. .xiki.iw.i Basketball The cagers, with only one letterman from last years live, had a comparatively poor sea' son. The unexperienced players could not stand the stern competition furnished hy the more experienced opposition. Our fellows played an admirahle game for a certain inter- xal, then hecame more or less "lagged out" as a result of being forced to their utmost limits in tighting the length of the game against the gigantic hasketeers that predominated the other schools. Although of smaller stature than their nature-favored opponents, their "grit" was unparalleled. and the game was never in the bag until the final whistle. Moreover, Madamoiselle Destiny was ever cool to them. Coach Rlyrick again proved his unexcelled ahility in imparting the technique of the cage game to an outtit handicapped in size and ex- perience. The lioys' faith in Mr. Nlyrick, lmoth as a coach and as a man, was unsurpassed. "Vic" Falk as manager was an inspiration to the teain. He was always on hand to help the hoys when in the slightest dilificulty. His eternal cheerfulness was contagious. The prospects for a successful team next year appear bright. Four lettermen are re- turning hesides four other promising warriors out for their tirst taste of hlood. page lifty-five -ir-X-f' , " Basketball Garfield Thorpe-Center Captain "Gar Thorpe played a smashing. brilliant game throughout the entire season. l-lis only rival in hrilliancy at the pivot posi- tion in the circuit was "Stretch" Scharfen herg, 6 ft, 3 in., who surpassed him only in reach. Frank Currier-Forward Currier was a very hrilliant floornian dura in the last season, being most elusive for the opposition to cover. Stoughton High laments the loss of this forward through graduation. Herman Gjestson-Forward "I-lansy" Gjestson played havoc with the enemy who always feared his deadly eye and flashing activities near their net. He was a colorful personality who was always "on" when the going was toughest. An- other forward, he also graduates. Ralph Atkinson-Guard "Raf" Atkinson was the stellar guard who broke up many of the pet plays of the op- ponents. He kept the Purple players in many a game by his defensive aggressive- ness. He is also a senior. Howard jones--Forward jones, with his extremely business-like hands, kept the opposition in desperate straits in trying to keep said hands from encircling the much coveted sphere, since they knew his accuracy. Stoughton claims him for two more years. Peter Vea-Guard "Pete" was a cyclone of activity during the last season, His fine work was an un- equalled asset, combining an intense energy and unerring accuracy. He is a Junior, who will he even greater next year. page fifty-six Basketball Games Stoughton-18 Wisconsin High-24 Stoughton met XN'isconsin High in the hrst basketball game of the new South Central League. This proved to be a closely contested game: the decision was rendered only in the last few minutes to the llreps of Madison. Stoughton-23 Evansville-13 The next game, a non-league atlair, ended in the Vikings' running ronghshod over the valiant Evansville team by a sat- isfactory score of 23 to ld. The oppon- ents received most of their points via the free throw route. Stoughton-6 Fort Atkinson-15 This was an otl game for both teams. but more so for Stoughton, Both teams relied most on defensive measures, but Stoughton couldn't connect satisfactorily on their long shots. Stoughton-12 Fort Atkinson-25 ln a return game between the two teams a better showing was made by both, but the sphere refused to connect with the hoop defended by the rivals of the Klyrick-men. Stoughton-16 Watertown-22 The next Friday Stoughton and XYater- town lligli came together to decide which should occupy the cellar for the present, The huge Sweitzers had an exeeptional night, but barely won the tilt. Stoughton-18 Evansville-8 ln the return tilt with livansville the local basketeers for a change met a team of their own size in physical build, but not in basketball technique. since they gained a victory to the tune of lg to 8. Stoughton-16 Edgerton-32 This game was all "Stretch" Scharfen- berg. the giant center of Edgerton. lle page titty over lowered and over-ran the rest ofthe players of both teams. llowever, Stough- ton put up a game tight as usual against overwhelming odds. Stoughton-13 Monroe-16 The game of basketball with the Klon- roe gallants resembled that of the toot- ball game, being an extremely hard fought atlair. The gameness and persist- ence oi our boys was remarkable, how- ever. Stcughtcn-17 Wisconsin High-25 "l'neasy rests the head on which lies the crown." Captain Thorpe proved this to the prospeetixe ehampions of the cir- cuit in the thrilling last lO minutes when he gained lZ points before the flash of the gun. Stoughton-15 Edgerton-17 lhis the Nlyrickmen lost, due to the free throwing ability ot' their bitterest rivals, lidgerton, who won the margin of vietory by their live gift shots, Stoughton proving superior otherwise. Stoughton-15 Monroe-19 The return game with Monroe was one which Stoughton was determined to win, but destiny decided it otherwise. since tive seconds before "tinis" two baskets ot the enemy slid through the netting. Elimination Game To determine which school should be represented at the Yvhitewater Tourna- ment, Stoughton and XYhitewater fought it out at XYhitewater in what was essen- tially a defensively played game by both, The score was ll to 3 in favor of XYhite- water. -seven Keir., , Q I kid: P' ' ,L li -wf' A Y -S' vu an W K .1 i D77 5 -L - wwf, f up -if .4 1 Q, fs?-'f S 1 4gY?nr"'Xy 5' I fi Q rg wx - Alf 55" ' y F Lf' wi' W ,, UL .

The seemingly endless days of waiting' are brought to a thrilling climax when the date of distribution arrives. Needless to say, much is expected of this four- teenth volume of the Yahara and the stali' sincerely hopes that this book gives a fairly accurate conception of the calibre of our high school. No student realizes the tremendous amount of work involved in the publica- tion of an annual-and certainly a suc- cessful one.

This club is a xlunior division of the Y. XY. C. A. Although only in its second year of existence, this club, under the supervision of Miss Leach. has become an active organization in High School. This year the club has been divided into two parts-a junior and Senior club. The members of the junior club consist of most of the Freshman girls, who next year will certainly be lit to become Sen- ior members. The Senior club was under the supervision of Bliss Haven. VVhen new members are taken in. any high school girl may become a member if she wishes to live up to the purpose of the club. The club has done a number of things to make itself known. When the wen' ther was at its best, a sleigh ride party .mllorotliy Carpenter . .. .Adelinc lloxc .. .Alildrcd Klnsrud was held. Hot lunch was serv ed by the town board who have done much to make the club a success, To help bring out the school spirit, members of the Girl Reserves made poms poms of the school colors. These were sold at the football games, and sureli made a big hit. Un the twenty-seventh of lfebruary the Annual Mother and Daughter Banquet was held. A very interesting nrograin was given in the presence of about two hundred and twenty-tive mothers and daughters. As each day goes bv. the purpose of the Girl Reserves is becoming more firmly planted in the hearts of high school girls. page sixty-three -x Howl-f-Everson, Slbzinner, Ness. Chapin.. Turinn.

The Hi-Y Club continued its existence with a good year. :Xlthough we lost our old advisor, Mr. Nelson, we found an able and welleliked successor in Mr. Andersen. The Hi-Y Club is maintained for the purpose of extending high standards of Christian character throughout the school and community. Although we don't pre- tend to be perfect, or even expect to ever be, we think that we have clone quite a bit in upholding this platform. Perhaps the high spot of our Hi-Y year was on February 23-24. On this weekend the Dane County Older Boys' Conference was held in Stoughton at the Central Christ Church. Although wea- .....,Alf Christenson ......Nlalcolm Stogdill .....l'hilip Klaesson ....Robcrt l'aliner ther conditions were bad and roads worse, the conference had an attendance of about one hundred boys from various parts of the county. The conference was very interesting, its best points being the talks given by Mr. Roberts, of New York. a man high up in the Y. M. C. .-X. work. Of course, all our meetings are not en- tirely serious, as we still hold to the old rule of paddling all our tardy members. Then, too, during the year, the l-li-Y "slung" several parties, both "with and without." So, on the whole, we feel we can say that Hi4Y has justified its existence and we think it will continue to do so. page sixty-fnnr Ron I--ll. Larson. llzilxerson. lamg. Rowe. Anderson.

K lrs, Tlnompson liven though we are a llome lic. club we have not done much toward the development of the domesticated arts, due to the ex- tremely large membership. Our main ob- jective has been to develop the spirit of friendliness and we feel we have been suc- cessful in our undertaking. The tirst part of each meeting is devoted to business. after which a program follows. The responsibility of the programs has been under the direction of a committee which was appointed at the beginning of the year. The chairman of this committee apportioned the responsibility for the program to a com- mittee composed of representatives from the four classes. The object of this was to arouse a spirit of competition between the members of the groups. with the result that each group tried to present a better pro- gram than the one given at the preced- ing meeting. The majority of these programs have con- sisted of impromptu entertainment provided by the members of the club, and some very excellent talent has been discovered by this method of entertainment. This year for the first time the members of the Home lic. club had the privilege of buying a pin showing that they are members of this club. After much discussion one standard pin was voted upon and now Cach member who wears one leels very proud of her possession. Much of the success of the organization has been due to the excellent advice and guidance which our advisor, Mrs. Thomp- son. has so generously given to us. I am sure the members ot the organization are all very grateful for the assistance she has given the past year. page sixty-sex 1 n Row I- Scott, 5lcKc-rclu-r. Tliorpu, Currier, Turmo.

The main purpose of the Girls' Athletic Association is to develop greater interest in athletics among the girls ot our high school, and to give them a true spirit of sportsmanship. Any girl is eligible for membership when she has fulfilled certain requirement. She must earn one hundred points. This can easily be done in various ways. She may receive twenty-live points for sixteen hours of swimming, or skating. or sliding, or any other sport, whether outdoor or indoor. She may also receive one point a mile for hiking. Each girl must earn at least twentyffive points each semester in order to remain in the club, XYhen she has earned three hun- dred points she may wear a G. A. A. pin. . ,... ,,... A Iarion Hove b earned six hun- dred points is entitled to a letter US."

On March twenty-second the operetta, "Purple Towers," was given by the com- bined Girls' and Boys' Glee Clubs. The operetta was a distinct success and a great deal of time was spent to make it so by the boys and girls under the diligent and patient supervision of lvliss Kiress. The Girls' Cilee Club was requested to take part in many entertainments. The first event was the Mothers and Daughters Ban- quet given bv the Girl Reserves. The Glee Club sang "NYake Bliss Lindy" and "XVhen Through the Night." The sextette finished the program with the beautiful selection, "Mother of Kline." ln the spring a concert was given by the tiirls' tilee Club, assisted by the orchestra. The last event of the year for the Lilce Club was the liaccalaureat services given in one of the churches. The Girls' Sextette was reorganized this year and the new members are: Pearl Seamonson.

The orchestra was reorganized last year. and under the competent direction of Miss Gress, has improved greatly since that time. She has spared no amount of pains to make it what it is now. The orchestra practices only once a week, the performances are really commendable. There is much sentiment to the effect that orchestra should be made a regular school subject. "Other schools do it, so why shouldn't we P" Such an action would un- doubtedly improve this organization a great deal. The orchestra furnishes entertainment for class plays, glee club plays, and other pro- grams. This spring it gave a concert in collaboration with the Girls' Glee Club. .....,.l-loward Severson ..........Howard Jones .,......,.Miss Gress Last fall Stoughton High School sent four orchestra members to the All-State High School.Orchestra at Milwaukee. This or- ganization, functioning annually, was a two hundred and fifty piece symphony under the direction of Prof, E. B. Gordon of the Uni- versity of XVisconsin, It played for the State Teachers' Convention and broadcasted its programl. Membership to this organi- zation should be, and will be. something to strive for in the future. Perhaps the greatest function of the school orchestra is what it does for its members. The orchestra makes them capable sight readers, teaches them simple harmonies. teaches them ensemble playing, and, best of all, teaches them to appreciate the better type of music. page seventystwn Ruwl -kltlderelier, li.

Agriculture OFFICERS President ,,,,,,..,,,,... Yice-President ,.,..,,,.,,,, Secretary-Treasurer ,,,,., Advisor ,,,..,................. The Agriculture Club was formed a year ago for the purpose of giving its members a few practical suggestions on becoming better farmers. Under the leadership of Mr. VVilke, our advisor, our meetings have been very in- teresting as well as enjoyable. With the aid of moving pictures and data gathered by members we have been able to under- stand the why and how of cows, hogs, and also corn, barley, and other crops which are familiar in this locality. All of the members would readily pass as first rate farmers. Our meetings have been liberally con- tributed to from the fertile brain of t'RaffU Atkinson, who, by the way, is considered an authority on all farm sub- jects except the line art of milking cows. This year we decided to restrict our ,,.,,,,Henry Hansen .....Stanley Sivertson .......Lyle Hougan .r.,.,,,M1'. VVilke club membership to those boys who were residents of rural communities. Having a practical background as we have, the discussions naturally have a better mean- ing. "Stub" Hoover, the half-pint farmer, enjoyed his initiation to the fullest ex- tent-and will not mention the details. Farming has rapidly risen in the minds of American people and therefore one of our main objectives is to increase the interest in farming. However, it hasn't been all seriousness in our club. After a little digging around for money, mostly out of our own pockets, we put on a hot party. VVith this chief purpose of the club in mind, we hope that future members of the "Ag" Club will have as much of a success as we have. page seventy-four '- ' , a a. t Houounv i Ax U. 1 1' i X ? 1 1 i 2 T - w 5 i i JZAHR.. , rn, , X it 'EYE I:::2:.f?iH""' 'fin m iii ' " '7 ""'4 'f1Tn::.,.

The standards, of great scope, are four- fold: scholarship, leadership, character and service. Since l9l9, the Honor Society has been a national institution, and today is very popular in Unite dStates schools, 350 popular in United States Schools, 350 schools having charters. A common em- blem is used throughout the U. S., and gold pins may be obtained by members. Students oi the 'Iunior and Senior classes, who rank in the upper quarter of their classes in schoalrship. are eligible to membership. From this number, l5 per cent of the Seniors and 5 per cent of the Juniors, who rank highest in the four definite standards, may be elected. The principal, with four faculty mem- bers, make the selections. This year seven members of the upper third of the Senior class were chosen -- Philip Klaesson, Harriet Hale, Mary lijoin, Frank Currier, Elsie Onsrud, Alf Christenson, Bjarne Romnes, and Olaf Roe. Another Senior member is Dor- othy Anderson, who was a member from the previous year. Only one junior was honored in membership 7 she is Josie Harried. One ol the chief motives of the organ- ization, which is not prominent socially, is to encourage interest in school work. Each memher of this society. so reward- ed with this recognition. has every rea- son to be proud of his achievements and should earnestly endeavor to uphold its principles. page seventy-six I-'4-atifaa.

E is 5 ,a Lions Club Scholarship Awards lt has been the custom ol the l,1Ull' Club of Stoughton to avvard medals each year to students who excell in each major study. 'l'hen a silver cup is awarded to the student ranking highest in all sub- jects. This is deemed a great honor in schol- arship and the Senior Class feels very' proud of the high averages in their class. Philip Klaesson, vvith Sl grade points. had the distinct honor of receiving the cup, XN'ith this marvelous record, Philip can be given the distinction of being one of the best students our high school has ever produced. The honor is determined by adding up the grade points of students in respective majors and that is divided by the number of semesters the major has been studied, to get the percentage. ln regard to grade points. three points are given for every .ix1tXYlJ for every li: and one for every Ci. The students receiving the medals this year rank high in the scholarship of the class and arc highly deserving of this honor, They are as follovvs: linglish. Mary lljoin. 24 grade points, average .ilzvl Mathematics. Frank Currier. 13 grade points. average 2.lo7'k: Language. Flor' ence Rowe, 22 grade points, average 2.75W: Science, llorothy ,-Xnderson. 18 grade points, average 313 Social Science, lijarne Ronines, 20 grade points, average 2.76fQ-1 Yocational. Martha Kvalheim. 17 grade points. average, ZJZSW. Since the awards are based on the four years' scholastic record, they create a stimulus for higher scholastic standards throughout the high school period and also create an ideal which is certainly vvorthvvhile striving for. page ee-veutyssl-ven GREGORY ANDERSON The Yahara Staff of '29 conceived a plan that carried out the unique idea of choosing a Representative Student of Stoughton High School by allowing every subscriber of a Yahara one hun- dred votes as a contribution to the suc- cess of his or her candidate. Each of the four classes chose a candidate, that qualitied for the stand- ards required by the Faculty and the Yahara executive committee, to repre- sent them in the campaign. The cam- paign became a spirited atlfair with each class trying to win for their can- didate the coveted honor. Not until the linal minutes of voting was the deci- sion, which brought a victory to the -luniors and Gregory Anderson, certain. YX'e wish to congratulate the Junior class upon their enthusiastic support of "Greg," a student that so well rep! resents the worthy ideals of courage, honesty, determination, sportsman- ship, and courtesy. ' EDNA GANDER Our school was singularly honored this year when one of its lfreshmen, Edna Gander, brought a state prize to S. H, 5. During the 1927-1928 school year. a contest was held to discover hidden talent in the art of free hand drawing, and to promote a greater ap- preciation of good art among school pupils. To carry out this motive the XYisconsin Federation of VVomen's Clubs held a Helen Farnsworth Mears contest for original free-hand drawing among all the eighth grade pupils of the state. Edna Gandens drawing, "'l'he Garden," received first honors in the local, the district and Hnally from all the contestants entered in the state contest. The judges based their de- cision on its merits of originality in ideas and pleasing choice of colors and subject matter. She was presented with a very beau- tiful bronze base relief, which she in turn kindly presented to our high school. page seventy-eight ,- Fl 1 ZOE ANDERSON There is one whom every member of '29 will never forget--one who will come to our minds when we think of high school days. She came to Stough- ton High as a ul:l'CSl1I1lZ1llU with the class now leaving. We feel proud that we have been fortuante in cherishing such a true and loyal friend. For what has Mrs. Anderson been but a friend- with always a cheerful "Good morn- ing" and a comforting word for the late sleeper probably tardy for the third time. There was always sincere sym- pathy for a headache but occasionally a suspicious glance. She is esteemed and respected by every single student, and it is through this realization that the Senior Class can in no way give her enough praise, XYe would like to show her in a very small way how much we, the class of '29, do appreciate her untiring and faithful work. An auntie to one of our flock, she is as much to all. S. 4- sl FLORENCE DONAHUE To be the Senior advisor is not the easiest of tasks. There are many dut- ies, many bothersome ones. that she must perform. XYe feel grateful to our efficient helper, Xlrs. lJonahuc. She always is willing at any time to do her utmost for usfnot only as a class but as individuals. liven l'at doesn't re- quire her personal attention all of the time. She deserves ample credit when she condescends to help individually any careless or unfortunate Senior who needs her advice, especially when she could be passing' happy and bliss- ful hours with Pat. She has initiative in abundance. Once in a while when somebody under her guidance fails to act according to duty. we see Mrs. Donahue coming down the main room aisle to "jack him up." VYe. the "twenty-niners." can only say that we wish her continued years of happi- ness and really want to thank her for all her "love" and consideration for our meek selves. page severity-rminr Debate Squad Affirmative Lillian livanvik Mildred Onsrud George Schuster Muriel Larson tQAlt.j Negative Frederick Henderson Boris Schuster Catherine Halverson Yirgie Vvalling CAlt.D Coacli-M r. Andersen Debating is one of the activities in our school which at the present has brought out only a minor interest among the stu- dents. but which is slowly but surely hnding its due rank as an educational feature. Unlike other organizations it develops primarily alertness of the mind, self confidence and bearing, and ability to see great problems through the impartial public eye. The question for debate was: "Re- solved, That the Direct Primary System for Nominating United States Senators. Representatives, and State Officials Should Be Abolished in the State of XN'is- consinf' The negative was upheld by Frederick Henderson, Boris Schuster, and Katherine Halverson. The affirmative was upheld by Lillian Kvanvik, Mildred Onsrud and George Schuster. Muriel Larson and Virgie VValling acted very creditably as alternates.

LX rdith Dersch The junior Class play, K'The Young- est," was presented December 14, 1928. with great success. "The Youngest" is a typically Ameri- can story of a wealthy New York fam- ily. The youngest son, Richard, a young inan of literary inclination, has been tyr- annized over by the other members of the family until he has developed a most serious case of "inferiority complexf' Al- though his youngest sister and his bro- ther-in-law invariably take his part in whatever quarrels arise, while his mother tries to maintain a neutral attitude, his brothers and his married sister abase him in everything he undertakes. Oliver Winslow, the oldest and head of the family in the place of his deceased father, huniiliates Richard in a thousand ways. Hrs. XYinslow, still grieving over the death of her husband, willingly sub- mits to Olivers dictations. Martha XYinslow sides with Richard as much as she can with hcr love for what's funny. .-Xlan and Augusta Martin, recently mar- ried, intrude at this point. and cause inuch dissension witn mother and brothers-in- law. Katie, the family maid, silently aids Richard in his distress. Finally, just when Richards affairs have reached the height of complica- tion, a good angel, in the form of a lovely heroine, appears upon the scene and with the aid of Richard's friend, Alan, dis- covers a technicality in the will of Mr. VVinslow which places great financial power in the hands of the youngest son. Armed with this weapon and with the knowledge that Nancy loves him and has confidence in him, Richard eclipses his domineering brothers and wins a much- deserved place of importance in the fain- ily circle. pam' eighty-four Senior Class Play "THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING" "The XX'hole 'l'own's 'l'alking'," a com- edy presented by the Senior class on May 3rd, was a complete success in every respect. Malcolm Stogdill. as Chester Binney, played his part perfectly as an absent- minded drudge, who has never given a thought to the opposite sex. He is the business partner of Henry Simmons, tlirank Currierp a quick and ready liar, always oozing with good humor. Mrs. Simmons lllorothy .-Xndersonj is vain and romantic but uncultured and is, of course, susceptible of flattery. Being ol a nagging disposition she prides herself on being possessed of all the virtues of a lady. Ethel Simmons Qhlary Bjoinj who likes everything that is ditterent, has just returned from college and has brought with her Roger Shields tflarence Nicho- lasl a foppish and snobbish type whose attentions to the ladies are so marked that he would be classed as a ladies' man. ln an attempt to arouse his daughters love for his partner, Henry Simmons tangles up affairs and in so do- ing causes l.etty l,ythe tlienrietta Ons- rudj brilliant and worldly, who has all the poise and self-assurance of a profes- sional star, and Donald Swift, fBoris Schusterj who is elemental enough to love prize-fighting and artistic enough to be a picture director. to come to his home. The taxi driver, l,Olaf Roej lacks the power of understanding and makes the situation worse instead of bet- tering it. Lila XYilson tllorothy Hatzin- geril and Sally Otis l'lDoris l.arsonl are of the usual small town flapper type, They are giddy and foolish. but both pos- sess a superior social sense. Harriet Hale as Sadie Bloom is gaudy, coarse. and vul- gar: her philosophy is to trust no one and to iight for what she gets.
