THEN ETEE FURTY-TIIREE
This Gymnasium-Armory was dedicated on May 1, 1942, after two years of construc-
tion, From a pile of dirt, an insignificant excavation, the roar of a riveter, the grind of a
cement machine, arose an imposing edifice, our "New Gymf,
The building has wrought many changes in our high school. It has housed daily noon
cafeteriasg rabid ping pong sessions and tense games of pool, right facings, and forward
marchesg a fun-packed variety show, ration board conferences, club gatherings, the Dandruif
Sisters and Drita Lundeworth in a hilarious pep program, band concerts, forward vaults
and birds, nests fgyni-nasticslg exciting wins and losses-and many a solid after-game dance.
The students of Stoughton High School have taken best advantage of this storehouse
of things to do. "Meet you over at the new gym!" has become the panacea for our
A nhangoutl' in the finest sense of the word, we point to the Cymnasium-Armory with
pride. It was a much needed, and is a much appreciated, addition to our campus-and to

Even in wartime school life goes on, altered
and somewhat curtailed, yes, but homework and
football games, class plays and American history,
dances and detention are still in order. Things
have changed, however, military drill, scientific
courses, and the Victory Corps are preparing us
for what is to come.
Leaf through the pages of your Yahara and see
Stoughton High School students at war. They
are students still having fun, still griping about
assignments, and still singing in every Wednes-
day assembly, but they are students sobered by
the times and eagerly looking foiward to Victory.

"Say, Stink, did you hear that one about-iw
faithful little group which meets then 18 whit
is known to all students as the Yllllllfll Staff.
Now, a word about what goes on at regular
meeting. Every Monday night, and any other
night we choose, the members of the staff bid
fond farewell to their friends on the outside and
pass through the sealed door into the room in
which their sacred secrets are developed but are
not allowed to escape. No stranger has ever en-
tered and not come out faster than he went in,
and with a little help.
How this annual ever emerged through all the
telling of those jokes. the gossiping about so-
and-so's date. the concocting of those renowned,
supercilious Yalmra announcements, is more
than even we can imagine. But, somehow, each
member seems to attend to his individual tasks.
All of the members of the staff sincerely hope
that this annual will bring back fond memories
to those who wish to look back on the year 1942-
1943 many years from now.

enlor Honor Students
Here are the brains of Stoughton High School
-or at least, of the graduating contingent. In-
stead of the now almost passe and admittedly
undemocratic valedictorian and salutatoriau
tfirst and second smartest. respectivelyj, Senior
Honor Students have again been chosen this
year. From the top one-third of the class, the
senior boys and girls, with the help and guidance
of the faculty, elect the twelve they consider to
be honor students.
This system has proved more fair and quite
as satisfactory as did the older arrangement.
The Senior Honor Students choose a gradua-
tion speaker from among themselves. And their
voice is strong, brave, and above all, intelligent.
ational Honor Society
The prime and the pick of the leading students
in high schools all over this country form the
National Honor Society. To be elected into this
exclusive organization, you must be in the upper
one-third of your class scholastically, must be a
leader in some sort of extra-curricular activity,
and should have desirable personality and char-
The majority of N. H. S. beneficiaries are sen-
iors, although a few outstanding juniors are also
selected each year. As its name implies, the so-
ciety is entirely honorary, but each year the
new members are initiated. They sit. blush pret-
tily, and look modest while an older member ex-
pounds upon the initiateis virtues.

graduate from high school, but it takes constant, diligent
xvork to graduate among the honored-aniong those who
have accomplished something really fine. Besides those
high honor students pictured on these pages, other Ullt'
standing leaders have been acclaimed hy civic organiza-
tions. Byron Crosse and Bill Everson were last sunnner
sent to the "Badger Boy's Stateu by the American Legion
and Auxiliary. The Auxiliary also sent Marylis Showers
as S. H. Sf representative to "Badger Cirl's State." Each
year the W. C. T. U. awards a silver loving cup to the
boy and to the girl in the senior class who have upheld
the finest scholastic, and Inoral standards through their
high school careers. III the essay contest on thc sub-
ject, "United We NVin,,' which the V. F. XV. sponsored,
lslbelle VVene won the first prize. Furthermore, scholar-
ships are annually awarded to outstanding scholars.
Awards and honors are won as a result of inspiration
couwled with perspiration. All these students should be

E IOR CLASS PROPHECY
The year is 1960. Today, we are going to take a holidiy jaunt to Mars on a class of 1943 reunion. We are travel-
ing to the McFarland metropolis where Col. Richard SPGJI6, appointed Colonel by President jean Paulson mana es
the original Earth-Mars Interplanetary Stratoliner. Her highness, Pres. Paulson, is going to christen Col. Sper e's
new ship today. However, she won't be able to make th: trip to Mars herself. The chief executive is too busy try-
ing to make up her mind between the first, second, and third men of the land.
There is a huge crowd over by the ticket booth, a converted pig sty. And right in the midst is the lovely Mrs.
Sperle, the former Barbara Olson. She is selling tickets, right and left, for the journey f28c round tripj. Barb is her
husband's biggest drawing card.
Pres. Paulson, who managed to tear herself from her debate for a minute, is now cracking a bottle of "Howdy"
over the bow of the ship. The motor is being warmed up by Pilot joe Hansen and Pilot joe Hansen is being wamied
up by Co-pilot Delores Loftus. The two pilots canit seem tw agree on which route to take. At last, after mechanics
Robert Hildebrandt and Claryce johnson Cbest dressed me,-hanic of the dayj give a few final tinkers with the engine,
the huge Sperle Stratoliner soars od into the blue.
As we come aboard ship, the personable ticket taker, El.vood Listug, efficiently punches our pass. Smiling host and
hostess, Edwin Lunde and Marian Seamonson, now both dmwn to a sylph-like 120, greet us sweetly and pass out
chewing gum to equalize our air pressure.
Inside the super-streamlined and magnificently decorat.-d rocket ship Cdone painstakingly by wife Sperle's little
handsb we see a dimly lit corner brightened only by that very pulchritudenous, platinum blond, screen star known as
Lily LaLove. Lily is just plain Ida Alme to you and me, but Ida bleached her raven tresses, downed a few Rye-Krisps,
and went to town in the movies. Having completed her latest picture, "The Shape of Things To Comef, Lily is going
to make a personal appearance tour through Mars. Right naw she is ignoring Sannny Eggum, the world renowned
guitarist, who is serenading her with, "Back In The Saddle Again," and she is paying no attention to Carl Dyreson,
All18I'1C1l,S playboy, who just stands and drools. The great L11Love is in deep conference with a distinguished man
whom she keeps coo-calling "Lloydikins.,'
Not since Don Hutson has there been such a super sensationxl pro football player as Frank "Flash" Anderson and
over there, sunk in a deep lounge chair, lies he. Although he is fairly surrounded by bevies of beauties, including
show girl Mary Anne Arnesoin Cpronounced Ar-na-shwal, and professional model Bessie Dahle, who gives with the
skin you love to touch under the nom de plume, "Whata Dollyf, the handsome athletic star just sits pulling his
hair down over his eyes and mumbling, "Shucks, twarn't nothin' 1"
In case you didn't know-Lorraine Brandt, Eldorae Barber, and Dorothy Evenson, after twelve years of continu-
ous eight hour speed tests, still remain deadlocked at 256 words a minute with no mistakes. The national typing
champions, under the coaching of Miss Mabel Anderson, just couldnit forego their rivalry for the holiday and are
now gaily pounding away. It could go on forever.
Howard Anderson has worked himself up to be the owner of a large chain of papers among which are his own
Union Times, the Cooksoille Union-Dispatch, the Utica Union Gazette, and the Stoughton Union-Suit. But still, to
while the time away, the distinguished newspaper magnate sits alone contentedly folding papers like he used to
when he was a child. He sips something from Baumgartnefs Root Beer Carden. Ed has built up quite a business
right here in the rocket ship using for furniture rehabilitated cushions out of the old wrecks he used to buy. Even
now Ed is tinkering around in the motor of a ludicrously antique 1942 Buick convertible behind the bar. Anna Mae
Bennett, who got her experience at Hotel Kegonsa-well, at least part of her experience-is taking care of the root
beer bar, although the business isn't rushing.
Those lovely refrains floating over the Grand Ballroom are supplied by james jorgens and Jeanne Ba LaLeike, who
have combined Ieanne's all-man choir and Corbett's Copa-Cutters into the top band of 1960. Corbett's theme song,
"Oh, Leona," provides the setting for the floor show which is just getting under way.
Alvhild Lein and her dancing dolls, Clara McCarthy, Cecile Norseter, Dorothy Quale, and Merrie Lou Lyon come
These sage words reveal the turnings of the clock,
out and do their routine for us. The grace and beauty with which the Rocket-ettes dance amazes all of us. Rumor
has it that a new singer, Mary Ellen Haugen, will join their troup.
The first to be introduced is Richard Jacobsen who gives a spirited lecture on how to appreciate a full moon. tWe are
now nearing the lunar satellite, and we must appreciate it! lj We can hear Dick shouting in his bubbling, over-
joyed way, "jus' look at that moon! Oh baby! Babyli'
We wonder who or what is making that terrific noise? We'll soon know-it,s coming closer. And here he comes,
the great lover, Byron Crosse, jumping over chairs and swinging from the chandeliers. Behind him, breathing hot on
his neck, is Franny Holte, still in good form after all these years. She has that gleam in her eye. Running a close third
is a woman that almost everyone affectionately calls "C0okie". "Cookie,' is wailing something about "wanting her
Lockheed." She also has a gleam in her eye.
The racket arouses Mr. and Mrs. David Drotning who have been drowsing on a streamlined divan. Mrs. Drot-
ning says sweetly, "Quiet please," and husband Dave says, "Yuh." They look sweetly at each other and relax again.
The Drotnings, three Bonnie little lasses, who swarm at their feet, do not annoy them at all.
From over in the corner comes a muffled guffaw, and we observe Milford Dary, the foremost Fuller Brush sales-
man of the day, and Donald Dahl, the fastest traveling salesman of the era. This fellow generally whizzes about in a
Nash-O-Rocket coupe which he slung together with the help of-you guess-who embroidered the seat covers.
The two traveling salesmen are exchanging tales of their own experiences and are laughing heartily. Something
about a farmeris daughter, we think.
Now, as effervescent Ann Lorraine begins ,to entice our old friend, Phil Nordlie, to join her in reviving her favorite
dance, the cherry hop,-the floor is trembling-disaster seems eminent-we rush out and run right into Marion Bovre
and Elizabeth Christopher who are just coming out of the Stratoliner's Beauty Shoppe, which is run by none other than
Henri Aubi. The girls still have on their mud packs and, literally, crack a smile. In passing, they wheeze ec-statically
about Henri's own cloud rinse-"It puts a curl in your toe nailsf, We decide to go in and see our old friend-but
glimpse Henri-hands dripping with mud, mustache twitching-just in time to say weakly, "Hi!', and dash out. We
meet Henriis manicurist, Karen Erickson, in the passage, looking frightened and mumbling, "He asked me to polish his
hair with Ruby Red." Hmmmmm.
After resting in the root beer garden for a while, we tire of taking other peopleis cokes and drift into the lounge
to see what's cookin'. Suddenly we hear a booming, oratorical voice that sounds suspiciously like Ellis Flint. Flint is
standing CPD on a streamlined soapbox giving a lecture on the evils of not reading comic books. With a talent that
is a carry-over from his childhood days, "Silver Voiced" Flint has talked his way into a monopoly of all the world's
comic books. Now he wears a flowing cape and big, bulging muscles. tSears-Roebuck 81.981
We silently steal away, only to collide with Ken Halverson who is agonizingly pleading with Bill Everson to give
up his mad interplanetary chase after "Red Painev and resume his profession of painting Stinka girls. Says Bill, "I
seemply con't paint weethout my eenspirationlv Ken begs, "But my boys won't play without Stinka pin-up girls in
their lockersf' tKen is now head checker coach at Cooksville U.l
Speaking of sports, there is a rumor spreading as fast as fire that the ex-four horsemen are on ship today. Rob-
ert L. johnson, Stanley Midtbo, Burlyn Nelson, and Clarence Vindedahl, all from our dear Alma Mater, claim that
And another rumor has it that Alvin Kaupanger, another Anderson protege, who has established himself the
World's Champion shorthand writer with the phenomenal speed of 365 words a minute, has received a call to a
job on Mars where they are shorthanded at this time.
A roar of the motor and screech of brakes is heard as Margie Linn breezes up in her own little cocktail-serving car.
As Barb Lysager steps out and hands us huge glasses of refreshing lemonade, we ask Margie how she ever learned to
drive in such a crowded place, and her on y reply was, "I got my practice in the good old days when I drove the
"Whoopee, I made itli' This shout comes from Nels Halverson who missed the rocket ship, so he equipped "Syl-
vester" with a pair of silver wings and has just breezed in. Nels tells us that he really shouldn't take so much time
off from his business of making "Sylvester,, cars. 'ijust donit let it bother you, Nelsln says Joyce.
just now "Wild Bill" Halverson comes striding in. He acquired a secure reputation for the worldis most reckless
driver during his high school days, but now has diverted his talents to flying and has succeeded very well. He is now
test piloting for designer Aldon Heggestad who specializes in the newest model nfiivver planesf'
A moment later, her hair askance and inky, Shirley Halverson breezes up to the group and asks if anyone needs some
letters written because she only has fifty left to write, and she doesn't want to waste any time. Artistic Shirley draws
little pictures to illustrate her epistles and closes with, "I love you." "I'm just trying to win 'my letter!" cries Miss Hal-
verson, B. A., M. A., B. S., and P. S.
Once more we head for the root beer garden and, in the doorway, we see Professor Arlee Furseth, who, having
made history for years, is now teaching it. Professor says she gets all her Wim, wigor, and witality from wanilla phos-
ww pa 'X
Our future, our actions, our looks-f-Yike, what a shock!
Now that we mention teachers, isn't that the noted scientist, james Bjerke, who discovered, after long hours of re-
search and experiment, how to eat grapefruit without having it squirt in one's eyes? Yes, it must be, for, surrounding
him are his chief testers, joan Foss, janet Sproul, and F em Simonson.
ln the root beer garden, laid out on the tables we find--samples of clothing made by the Hansoneva Sportswear
Company, with john and Palmer on hand to waylay unsuspecting customers. They took this over back in 1950 after
one of them married the bossis daughter. Helen Heggestad, Atlantic City beauty contest winner, is modeling the
sports costumes created especially for her by Hansoneva. We can't describe it here, but, ,...,,. confidentially, it's
sensational! Bob Grefsheim and his wife, the former Dorothy Visaas, are joint tailors in this clothing firm. Dorothy
still cuts a fine figure and sews a straight seam, while right at the moment Bob is trying to revolutionize a garment
for the younger generation by making something to replace the former three cornered style.
A little farther on, Doris Hoel's "Best in the Westn malted milk concern is doing a rushing business tonight. When
Dick Sperle and jim Smithback left Stoughton High, Uncle Ole willed Doris his secret formula for malted-making,
for it was of no use to him anymore. Doris has made good use of the formula and soon expects to retire in searci
of a more adventurous occupation-she says she might even get married.
As we down the last drop of our fifteen-center, Barbara Lewis breezes past us. By the pink in her cheeks, it looks
as if she and Howard have been "at it" again. Of course this is an old story by now, and we know that they'll be
back together again "holding hands in the dark."
Over at the far table Dick Huston and Vernon Humberg are discussing the possibilities of their chain of Dairy
Bars along the Milky Way. Vernon's "Humbergers" have been such a success that he is looking for new worlds to
q"Long john Silver" Iverson has left his career of pirateering to be with us tonight. There are rumors being cir-
culated that he is going to settle down with his boyhood ideal, Betty Terry. CThat is, if she can corner him.D
Shirley Jacobsen and her all girl football team, the "Purple Panzers," are preparing to blitz the undefeated "Mars
Manglersn in the Lava Bowl on New Year's Day. Shirley's brilliant quarterbacking has astounded grid experts.
All Iolting Jake will say is, "Tomorrow, weire going to get out there and fight." Ruth Lacy and Geraldine Larson, the
famed Touchback Twins, have shined their brass knuckles and sharpened their fingernails in preparation for the
encounter. With these two the odds are 10 to 1 against the Manglers.
Admirals Bob Montague and Jerry johnson are traveling to Mars to promote universe solidarity between Mars
and the United States. These gentlemen distinguished themselves in the defeat of the Jap Navy fifteen years ago.
They have been asked to remove their medals tonight as the glare is injurious to human eyes.
The whole upper suite of the Sperle Stratoliner is occupied by Virginia johnson, Eleanor Kalland, and Lois Frey,
whose affinity for children has caused them to open the "Rock-a-bye" Adoption Agency. One of the girlis first customers
was graying, bachelor, Orlin Kong who says: "I want to hear the patter of little feet and know that there will be a
little one to follow in my footsteps after I'm gonef' Iim afraid the little tyke is destined for a bad end.
Marylis Showers, the editor of that popular turf edition, Good Horsekeeping, finally ditched the Navy to become
better half of that turf trainer, Bud Scheldrup. Mr. and Mrs. Scheldrup have just returned from South America, where
Bud looked over some good thoroughbred prospects and his wife, just some prospects.
Let us meander into the Sky Room where we see a little friendly four-handed poker game going on. The two old
salts with the C. P. O. ratings are Norman and Lawrence who left the dear old Alma Mater for careers in the Navy.
That man with the long black mustache and a gun in his hip pocket is Bob Sundby and lo and behold, if that gentle-
man dealing himself off the bottom of the deck isnit Duane Wee Thorson-Duane almost didn't get to make our
party.. He was in the middle of court proceedings for his third divorce.
Ah, here's a friendly little circle of alumni sitting around the table drinking root beers. Who are they?????? Well,
I'll be darned! That gent with the beard is jim Smithback and even though he uses a cane, he still is the main-
stay of the Chicago Bears as their fullback. fWonderful thing, these vitamin pillsl. And there are David Natvig
and john Nelson gazing quietly at El Doris Hagen. She has been telling them about her new job with a circus. She
and Bernice Neilson do a trapeze act. They fairly Hoat through the air. Bemice, she says, was unable to come to the
party as she missed her cue, fell three-hundred feet, and broke her fingernail.
Up at the har, Dorothy Greig, June Quale, and Gail Sveum are engaged in deep conversation with bartender
"Burge" We hear Burge say, "Oh, I could have had the Rocket tonight, but I didn't want it." The same old Burge.
Incidentally, we notice Eileen Rein and Marian Reirson, supervised by Burthe Slinde, as they help take care of the
guests. And now and then we catch a glimpse of Barbara Kline as she graciously smiles upon everyone.
But as we have seen, nearly everyone from t e class of 1943 has made the rocket ship for the trip to Mars where
will be held our 1960 reunion. If we had time to report that history-making epoch, we would be able to give you even
more gossip about our old classmates. However, Donald Swingen, the one who swallowed the printing bug as a small
boy, has just finished his apprenticeship as a printer's devil on a large southern Wisconsin newspa er and promises that
the first edition of the newspaper which he is about to print will carry a complete account ofP the pecularities and
achievements of the Class of 1943. Impossible--you say? Could bel

September 14, 1942, dawned bright and cheery,

which they were supposed to be. The boys

A CAPPE LLA
Second hour on Mondav, Tuesday, and Thurs-
dav alwavs finds the air filled with strains of
sweet music coming from the new gym. This is
produced by the hard-Working, fast-learning,
gently melodious A Cappella choir.
This year the choir has more advantages than
ever. In the new gym they have a sunny room
all by themselves. Here other classes canit bother
the choir and the choir canit bother other classes.
Miss Paulson can also give exercises on how to
lead a choir.
The girls greatly outnumber the boys but this
doesnlt seem to bother the boys. VVhen music is
forthcoming, Miss Paulson, the skillful director,
waves her baton as "Buddy', Becker pounds the
ivories. Miss Paulson is very busy because she
also directs assembly singing. Our voices, iive-
hundred strong, warble the gamut from "Three
Blind Micev to "Solomon Levin to GVVhite Christ-
The A Cappella choir presents an impressive
Christmas pageant which is given every year.
They also go on a musical tour. This is looked
forward to by all the members, and not only be-
cause they get out of school for it, for they always
have great fun.
The robes Worn are long and grey. The girls
Wear White collars While the boys wear white
shirts and ties. They look very smooth. Bright
red stoles give a medieval dash to their costumes.
President 'fliinv Smithback rules with a strong
uirony' hand. It Miss Paulson is called out of the
room, njinf' takes over. Often the choir sings
swing music under "Ii1n,s', orders, although they
don,t need much prodding. The other oiticers
are: vice-president, Margie Linn, and secretary-
treasurer, Barbara Olson.

all we, the cast of Ever Since Eve, heard for
about two months, but we believe our time was
not wasted. Only one play was given this year
instead of the traditional two, because it seems
the War has also caused a shortage of teachers
who could serve as coaches.
The play selected for the junior and senior
classes to present was a refreshing story which
proves-or tries to prove-that woman has been
causing trouble for man "ever since Evef, The
story centers around Johnny Clover, editor of
the Preston high school paper, the "Penquin.',
Johnny, a studious boy who takes life rather more
seriously than do most of his classmates, is sev-
enteen. Iohnny,s one great problem is Susan
Blake. She is only fifteen, but has caught up in

of the "Penquin,', much to the dismay of johnny
and his best friend, Spud Erwin. Susa11 is on the
verge of being ousted from her position when
both johnny and Spud contract the measles.
Susan then takes over and, with the assistance of
Spud's sister, Betsy, succeeds in putting out a
very mixed-up edition of the paper. Through
Susanis misdirected efforts, the "PenquinD causes
Martha Willard, the journalism teacher, and
Henry Quinn, the principal, to find that they are
supposed to be married. After thinking it over,
they discover that it's not such a bad idea and
Matters are further complicated by the pres-
ence of Lucybelle Lee. Lucybelle is a typical
southern belle who writes some putrid poetry on
the side. She is not a vamp in any sense of the
word, but she will always attract men because
she is so pretty, sweet, and brainless. Johnny,
Spud, and Preston Hughes all vie for the chance
to take her to the Christmas Prom.
Between Spudls need for a new muffler on his
car and a stolen pinball machine, these mischie-
vous young people keep Officer fCappyQ Sim-
mons very busy.
By the end of the third act, Susan shows
johnny and Spud that she doesnit belong to
another generation and that she, too, is a desir-
able young lady with whom to attend the prom.
WVe hope you enjoyed our play as much as we
enjoyed presenting it to you.

GIRL RE ERVE
Pienics, and hay-rides, and mid-winter sleigh
rides, all make up part of the Girl Reserves, cal-
endar. But even in the midst of all this fun we
girls know how to work. This year the Senior
Girl Reserves got into the scrap by making scrap-
books filled with cartoons to send to the men in
the armed services. The Junior Girl Reserves
have also helped the war effort this year by con-
ducting a "Bundles for American drive. The
clothes collected in this drive were sent to chil-
dren in our country and to those of our allies.
However, besides the time we spent doing our
helpful tasks, we still found time to have our
annual parties. In October we held our tradi-
tional Hallowe'en party. Ghosts and goblins met
the girls at the door and conducted them to the
'LHouse of Horrors." WVe girls came dressed in
costumes, and a prize was given to the girl with
the most original costume.

With a nose or news, Parrot knows the news.
Our school paper, the Parrot, has gone patriotic for the
duration and now appears in a small four-page paper
which comes out every other week. Advertisements cover
the spaces where the Parrot cloesn't.
Those of our high school population who want to find
out the latest in school gossip and corny jokes in the so-
called humor column, have to contribute a dime a se-
mester to do so. Then you can find a quiet corner and

If someone were to open the door of the art room in
the high school about eight olclock on a Monday night,
what a sight would greet his eyes. Leaning over the
tables, some students are ferociously working on pieces
ot' drawing paper on which figures are mysteriously tak-
ing form, and there is one who is putting the finishing
touches with his paint brush on what seems to be a
peaceful country scene.

There's something about
a uni orm!
As you stroll onto the foothall field, or enter the new
gym on your way to witness a good game or shed a
tear at graduation, you are confronted hy an usher in a
handsome purple and grey uniform who immediately
hands you a program and eonduets you to a good seat.
Or the usher may help you in other ways, for he can
giye you information about almost anything. Ile fre-
quently answers such questions as "VVho,s playing?U or,
"VVhere's the drinking fountain?"
The advisor of this organization is Mr. Lee, our or-
chestra and history conductor. It is his jolm to train the
memlvers, to see that the cluh always has eight memhers
in it, and to find hoys to replace those who have grad-
uated. This organization, a mere lmalme in years, was
started last year hy Mr. Netterhlad, hut has now grown to
he a giant in usefulness and seryiee.

on at foothall and haskethall games little realize all the
work that has to he done hetiore the lads in purple can

Boy, what footworkl and Oh, what a punch!
On March twenty-second, the 1943 boxing
tournament was presented. The slug-fest Was
enthusiastically attended by a record crowd. The
boys out for boxing this year were in top condi-
tion. The credit goes to Mr. Davis and his stren-
uous exercises-plus some good, well enforced,
training rules. Many boys tried out, but some of
these were eliminated.
There were fourteen fights, each consisting of
three exciting rounds. Many of the bouts were
very close but, because of the rules, Referee Joe
Steinhauer gave no draws. After the lights, the
judges named Duane "T0ny,, Thorsen as the
Kfightingest Hghterv and presented him with a
handsome gold trophy. The judges Were: Dr.
Schoenbeck, Dr. Gregerson, Mr. Rolfe Hanson,
and Mr. Harold Mennes. The fights were really
swell, and all of them were fast and clean.
The boxers and their classes were as follows:

In September and October, football practice leads to games.
September 14-Good morning, students! All glad to be back? fLong, low groan.j Seniors looked
as though they came back to the curriculum to recuperate from their summer, juniors looked rather
droopy, sophomores looked bored, and the freshmen just looked, and looked, and looked.
September 15-It certainly doesnit take these new pedagogues very long to get into the swing of
things. Assignments come very easily for them.
September 16-Today we got in our Wednesday groove again as we warbled "School Days" and
"Smiles.,' Buddy B. did his best to drown out the blue notes by pounding on the piano.
September 17-Grover Cleveland Alexander, that great, great, great, great American ball player
attempted to talk to us today on his career of pitching. Nuf sed.
September 18-"Well,,' quoth Marshall M. after hearing the annual gale of moral threats from the
Menace, "I guess I'll have to forego my noon fag. Shucks and stuff."
We also consider it necessary and essential to tabulate the score of the Delavan Deaf game. Twelve
to noddings, our favor.
September 21-Frowns and ominous looks of gloom furrow our brows of late. Conditions, far be-
yond somebodyls control, have amputated our morning and noon assembly bull sessions, et cetera. We
are very unhappy.
September 22-Piggy-penny banks are being ruthlessly smashed by the score. This tax business for
stamp book is taxing our bank accounts.
September 23-As we lustily sang, "The Army Air Corps," in assemblage this bitter morn, seventeen
local lads, a roaming mongrel, and Miss Anderson were carried away by the music and joined the
Army Air Corps, which, incidentally, nothing can stop.
September 24-Happy Birthday to you, dear Delores!-we would say if this were only March, but
it isnlt. So I guess welll have to let it go at that.
September 25-The most successful dance of the season was given by those enterprising Hi-Y men
with a mere pittance for admission. We trudged in the general direction of home through a snow-
P. S.-Philo pitifully reminds you that it was the first dance of the season.
September 28-The teachers were to listen to an interesting and educational radio program after to-
day's session. In the rush of preparations for this occasion someone forgot to obtain the admittedly es-
sential factor of a radio. No program!
September 29-Mr. Lee's jokes. Ha-Ha!
September 30-jokes, what reeked, were rattled off by our old standby, Nick the magazine ped-
dler, who came around again. Marylis and Byron are the team leaders. Yahara submits a "Rah, Rah"
just for the spirit of the thing.
October 1-Hot and heated elections today. Dick Onsrud is king. Long live the king!! The junior
gals falso a few seniors who insist they can dream, canlt they??j have besieged the poor defenseless
Only eighty-eleven days until prom.
October 2-Oi-yoi! What a stinker! Well, as we've said before and will say again, no doubt, we
can't win every time. Portage "trimmed us 27 to nudding. Nudding?? Nuddinglli'
October 5-These senior girls are objecting violently to the rule which requires they take showers.
Says a bright grey haired co-ed, "I take my bath every Saturday night. Showers ain't not a necessity.
It ruins my curls."
October 6-Super salesman, Robert Evans, "Youdonwannabuyamagazinedoyo'd" twenty-six bucks
worth of periodicals today. Some line!!
October 7-A few senior lads looked very bedraggled this bright, blue October morn. What does
Evansville do to them? VVhat do they do to Evansville? What does-oh, never mind.
October 8-Our sentimental principal got all choked up about something in assembly. Won't some-
one inquire and comfort him in his sorrow, his difficulty, his bereavement?
Dates and dances in N ovemberg gains and losses with favored dames.
October 9-Apples, potato chips, chocolate doughnuts, candy f30c worth! and Royal Crown Cola
comprised the continuous menu for those lucky kids who got out of school all day to be detrimental
in the progress of the Yahara pictures. You all looked very pretty.
October 12-The fact that we crushed Wisconsin Dells by rushing for five touchdowns and two
extra points which makes-let,s see, uh ,,,, ah, ,.u.,c hmmmmmm, ah ...... THIRTY-TWO to nothing,
made up for the bitterness caused by Philo's hop. The prices were too high, the nickelodeon too silent,
the dance too brief, and the Philo girls too-too!
October 13-It seems the freshies have been instructed in the ways of a transient. Mr. Lampman
knows how to take a three-thousand mile trip for two on 38 bucks. Now, don't rush! He'll tell you
all about it.
October 14-The pictures taken of you and me to grace our stamp books were so awful, the com-
pany sacrificed and burned to spare us from the FACTS. However, chin up, we submitted to photog-
raphy again today. Me--Without my hair set!!
October 15-Although we suspect bribe and graft, Robert Duane Grefshiem was the magazine
salesman who was drawn out of the hat-his name, that is. He won five dollars in defense stamps.
October 16-Not only for the sport of it, but also for academic reasons, seventeen-eighteenths of
S. H. S. sped to Madison to see the team-yea, team-squeeze out a 13-12 victory over Wisconsin
High. The ensuing evening was spent in games, etc. A good time was had by all?
October 19-The atmosphere this Monday morning was so blue that Navy jackets would look pas-
tel by comparison. We have a list of six weeks tests staring us in our pale, blank, scared-stiff faces.
October 20-Holte just read that saying that goes, "The way to a man's heart is through his stom-
ach. " She tested the proverb by presenting a Luther League pumpkin pie to several senior boys.
Said pastry was mushy and flat.
October 21-Smithback is certainly giving Margie the rush, rush, rush, rush, rush, forl-P?
Dates tonight, also next Friday and Saturday. P. S. Margie does not go steady.
October 22-A voice, with long eyelashes and padded shoulders, was mobbed by female admirers
-even seniors-who begged for autographs after he had sung to us in assembly. Silly, isnit it?
October 23-Dnuthing is so disbal as a die id a foodball gab. We died Edgertud sevid to sevid.
Pardud by cod which I pigged ub ad the gab. Id was very cod oud.
October 26-Dancing to sweet and hot jive, the students agreed that the dance we, the super-efficient
Yahara staff, gave last Friday night will go down in history at Stoughton High.
October 27-Our very patriotic scholars are contributing to the war effort by purchasing war
stamps regularly. To heck' with Hitler! 'Evidence of our education.
October 28-Our rugged football heroes submitted to tuberculectomies today with an excellent
record of only six faints and two nervous breakdowns. We are proud of them.
October 29-Either we just don't give a darn or our teachers are unjust, for we all came through
with a maximum of laundry marks. SF!!
October 30-We don't care what you say- the Monroe game was miserable. We lost, 7 to 6, and it
was very cold and wet. C. A. A. put on a spasmodic dance. The nickelodeon worked-then it didn't
work. Monroe boys livened up the party by exhibiting their powers at leap frog and marching drill.
N ooember 2-Poyem:
Flint has given up all hope
Of ever serving that ball with dope,
For against opponent-Cook,
Well, conHdentially, he got took.
November 3-Our mathematically-minded students ventured back into the grade schools and once
again trod the old familiar halls as they measured the buildings in preparation for fuel oil rationing.
November 4-Goodbye. We're off for four days of fun and sleep, because our instructors are off-to
be instructed. On our way we will stop and see the football game at Fort. .
Comes December'--we greet the snow and jolly ol' Saint N ick.
November 9-Back again! We stopped too long at Fort and lost 7 to 6.
Miss Haas was taken out of circulation over the holidays. According to the most reliable report, she
got married to the Army Air Corps!
November 10-Females are frantic. Hoodies are bawling in the streets. Bob, Jerry, Lugs, Johnny,
and Mort have enlisted in Uncle Sammy's Navy. Tsk, tsk, girls--the odds are increasing.
November 11-Armistice Day, 1942. Remembering. Remembering the dead and maimed and
crippled and armless. Remembering war-in the midst of another, greater, more terrible war.
November 12-We thought the program, "This is Worth Fighting F orf' by the 6th hour social
problems class was stupendous, colossal, magnificent,-also, very good.
Incidentally, Stink fye ed.j was the author.
November 13-Lucky, lucky seniors got out of class to register farmers, doctors, lawyers, thiefs for
gas rationing. Confidentially, class is simpler.
Friday the thirteenth! Sally Kleven broke a mirror.
Did you hear about the moron wh
November 16-Went into the closet to change his mind?
November 17--Took some whiskey to bed with him so he could sleep tight?
November 18-Took some oats to bed with him so he could feed his nightmares?
November 19-Cut out his eyes because he heard he was going to have a blind date?
November 20-Put bird seed in his shoes so he could feed his pigeon toes?
P. S. Due to uncontrollable circumstances, the calendar for this week was misplaced, and we
thought you wouldn't mind being reminded of a few of this year's favorite moron jokes.
November 23-Flash! The local news sheet, "The Parrotf, replete with Psittacosis, Corbett's Corny
Corner, and Whois Who, was with us for our news-hungry eyes to feast upon. The fact that "The Par-
rot" has finally gone to press was the biggest and best news.
November 24-The wages of sin are death, and that's darn near what Smithback got for hanging his
pin. Margie L. was the lucky recipient-in case you didnit know. Confidentially, we think the boys
really took it a little easy on Smithback's-er, ah, Smithback. Afeared, maybe, huh?
November 25-Upon losing a bet with the basketball players, Mr. Iarvis, with all the fortissimo
and allegro and largo of an operatic, warbled, "I've got 57 varieties of sweetheartsf' dedicated to Mr.
Lee. We drooled all day, dreaming of turkey and dressing, pumpkin pie, golden yams, et cetera.
November 30-We are recuperating from several "last flingsv over the weekend. This is the last
:lay before gas rationing. Amen.
December 1-Bud H., Seamon M., Chuck N., Paul B., and all the rest of the velocity maniacs are
drooping around with drooping countenances. Cas rationing has curbed their Jimmy Lynching
Deviling Driving . . . Well, almost.
December 2-Flash! A school bus with two students, one boy, one girl, was stranded in the ditch
today. Isabelle and her pappy drug it out-with the aid of a snow plow and a Wrecker.
December 3-Hearts were beating fast as our big, strong, football heroes received their letters to-
day. They were sternly warned not to pass ,em around lightly.
December 4-Were we excited, kid! Twenty-four to twenty-four and fifteen seconds to go. We
finally squeezed out a . . . - over Richland Center, 27-24. Weire still breathless.
The Hi-Y dance was a huge success, from a social point of view, in spite of the fact that the fire
alarm fvery loud and very frightening! rang at least a dozen times.
December 7-Blackout! One doesnit appreciate electricity until one is plunged into total darkness,
really one doesn't. The lay-en-ess employees had shotguns and clubs to ward off students who might
be tempted to creep around in the blackness and snitch boxes of candy or pipes or toothpicks.
December 8-The Ach Choir is frustrated because they don't know their new song, half of them
donit know whether they're coming or going, and they're losing tenor after tenor to the Navy.
Qay parties and dull mornings, bleak january has its kick!
December 9-"Were part of the Nation's Victory Corps. Weire proud to bear the namef' Jane
Smithback composed the winner in our Victory Corps song contest. We thought that one to the tune
of "jingle Bells" was cute, too.
December 10-Cot those nasty yellow cards again today. On the whole, they stunk! Too much
December 14--Messrs. Krunkenberg, Sweeny, Stiff, Olson, and Shearer shall be our bitterest ene-
mies for life. They drubbed us, very efficiently, 34-21. The manager of the Badger was very bitter to-
December 15-Local hags swooned at the handsome "Hoosier Schoolmasterv as the movie of the
same name was shown Cwell, Art K. did his best to show it to us! to all the English classes. The two
heroines were corn and caused no flutter. P. S. Whippetis back! Yi-hoo!
December 16-That thing called Christmas Spirit pervaded the student body, as we fa-la-la-ed all
the airy carols of the season.
December 17-Hector, that inimitable perp, paid a visit to the A Cappellists today. General up-
roar was the result.
December 18-Confidentially, it stunk! On the inside track it smelled! just between me and you-
it was putrid! The Wisconsin High nifties whipped us 27-24. And so to the Philo Dance-by 9:45.
December 21-We dragged into the Philo Christmas Dance. Gene Hanson's band was-well, not
solid, but plastic, the floor was smooth as glass, and twice as slippery. Regardless, we enjoyed our-
selves. Mr. Lee's sax solo was the high spot.
December 22--We're all watch-outing, we're all not pouting-,cause Santa Claus is coming to
town. Weire off for a week and four days of snoozing and something-that-rhymes.
January 4-Judging from the barrage of ski sweaters and sweatersanskirts, Santa Claus came to
town and did very well by us.
January 5-Maidenly hearts are a'flutter-for all the local gobs are home on leave. Oi-yoi! When
they see a man in blue-clear the decks for action. Miss Wade came back to us with another name.
january 6-Oh, Yahara! What sacrifices are often made in thy name! Stink yodeled, "Home on
the Rangen C just for a gag! over the loudspeaking system. This was coupled with a garbled announce-
ment about blsnogovitch for 81.50 and see bllllgudohimmdseedk and Iohn Carroll. Oh well, we tried!
Ianuary 7-We were all left weak after sitting through a session of, "Somewhere l'll Find You," with
Gable and Turner. MMMMMMMM! Corbett drooled all the way home.
january 8-Monroe arrived in gas rationed forces to watch their sharpshooters trim us neatly 31-35.
We danced and had a very fine time afterwards while the chaperones knitted.
january 11-Spectacular Hi-Y pep program overlooked so we will record it now: Exceedingly hila-
rious, Drita Lundeworth was charming in her flesh colored gown, the Dandruff Sisters were attractive
if not harmonious, and "Hot Lips" Luedkestrongis solo stunk on schedule.
January 12--Yahoo! Hooray! Our basketball bumpkins came through once more. Twenty-seven to
nineteen was the tally, and Portage was the defeated aggregation. We are delirious!
January 13-We dood it again! Yahara ground out one of those super-sillious announcements again
-this time with dancing, yet.
January 14-Dr. Stumpyu and Dr. Yerdun attempted to stump the geniuses geniei U! gemini
C ?!-oh nuts! of Hi-Y and Philo in a competitive quiz on things and stuff in assembly today. Hi-Y
triumphed ! ! Cof course! 'Pj
january 15-The Art Club was anything but artistic in its impersonation of our pedagogues in their
first childhoods. It was fun, though-especially Kleven as Coach Jarvis, Becker as Mr. Lee, and Kittle-
son as Miss Anderson. Our team was good but not good enough. We lost 39-28.
january 18-"South American men are the same as yours, only they admit they're wolves," says
Commando Fallon, the handsome Colombian who spoke at a special assembly. Cold, isn't it? 490
in Latin this morning.
Basketball in Februaryg holidays, too---thank george and Abe.
january 19-Brrrr, so cold Mr. Mennes says we'll have no school for the rest of the week. But on
top of this good news he reminds us of semester exams next week.
january 25-Meyer of Baraboo set a new record Friday night, 23 points. Too bad he wasn't on our
Ianuary 26-Larry R. thinks that an adaptation for a "dear" Qsupposed to be 'ideerwj is long slender
legs and a streamlined body. We thinks the man is correct.
January 27-Assembly singing rolls around again and-Yahara ffor oncej didn't interrupt with
one of those hilarious Q ?j announcements.
january 28-Needles and yarn are flying these days as the home management class purls and drops
to finish their projects.
January 29-The seniors were conspicuous in their absence at the "Senior Dancei'-perhaps we
should say "Senior Ping Pong." Half to three-quarters of S. H. S. jumped and jived with Gene Krupa
and his Marijuana Maniacs at the U. W. Swing Concert. He was better than the nickelodeon.
February 1-We heard an ugly rumor-donit spread it around-that Monroe beat our "Basketeers"
32-15. Remember! A rumor may lose a life.
February 2-Mid girlish screams and boyish shrieks, the sophomores are now dissecting frogs and
February 3-"Moonlight Becomes You" brought that far away look in a lot of eyes. Gone are days
when you could just drowse along a country road by a lakeshore under a big yaller moon. Ah!
February 4-We're in a bad way. Received those nastly little cards again and not very many of
us are in 1-A. Still, we didn't hear of any 4-F's, either.
February 8-Well, this time we lost, 31-25, to good old Fort. Regardless of gas rationing a big
bunch of kids struggled through the drifts. Wethinks the lads who went to Madison had a more
exciting, if less esthetic, time. Flint says he went to a movie.
February 9-The wonders and mysteries of enchanting India were revealed to us today by a "sil-
ver tongued sahibf' The boys catcalled a little as johnny P. modeled the latest Indian modes. Very
February 10-Mr. Lampman says he is a very bright man because he is a Lamp-man. Isn't that il-
luminating? Uh-huh. We thought so too.
February 11-Oooh, did they stink! We all went up to see the Four Ink Spots, minus one who had
pneumonia, warble three tunes and disappear. We could stay out real late because those teachers con-
vene again tomorrow!
February 15-Here it is Monday and we still havenit recuperated from that killer-diller game. We
won, you know, 33-30. Reedsburg was our unlucky foe. We would have liked to see more of that
February 16-Have you noticed that lovely shiner that D. Thorsen is wearing? Most lovely purple
we've seen since the basketball team got new uniforms.
February 17-Even though we made more noise than Wisconsin High, they were hot as fire and
whipped us 39-24. Most of us had, fun, regardless.
February 18-Philo did its best but the best was none too good in giving the pep program today.
But-what can you expect with such short notice?
February 19-Apparently the team saved its reserve energy from the Wisconsin High game to pull
us through to victory against Lake Mills. So we will be in the tournament next week.
P. S. The game was in Edgerton and ,,,,u,,uu,. the town remained in one piece.
February 22-We were very happy that George W. was born. Happy birthday, George, and thanks
for giving us a half-day,s vacation. Sperle and the boys spent the day in Calory City.
February 23-Don't be cheap! Buy a jeep! Our war stamp jeep campaign went over with a bang.
:'Simon', bought a small fortune's worth, as usual.
February 24-Imagine Flint's embarassment when all was quiet in Latin II and out came a little
loud burp! Everybody's fingers went up immediately, and Miss Lowry was the pig.
The March winds blow and skirts arenft low---oh, babe!
February 25-ZZZZzzzzzzzzzz! The Freshmen tried to put over a lengthy discussion of newspapers
even though all sixteen of them had ularynjitisv or something.
February 26-Those incomparably insane teachers of ours presented a melee of basketball, football,
bedlam, and murder as a pep program. First time we ever saw a chorus girl, a clown, an acrobat, a
"matron,,' an 1890 bathing beauty, and a kindergartner play such a rugged game of ball.
March 1-"Teach me how to swear in Latin!', said Phoebe S. after seeing the Edgerton game. We
cheered and screamed and kicked and tore our hair, but some sloppy joe swished one in for the To-
bacco City in the last five seconds to triumph, 83-32. We nearly died!
March 2-We're getting into the heat of the jeep campaign, thick and fast. Hi-Y has bought a
bond and challenged the other organizations to follow suit. Seniorbiscuit is racing junioraway, Soph-
O'War and Froshalsab are racing madly. Who will win?
March 3-The great contest has begun. Her majesty, the Queen of the Jeeps, will ride in state in
her royal carriage after we have elected her from the two candidates from each class.
March 4-We traveled "en masse" to Bagtown today to scream and yell to see our fighting cagers
get squeezed out by Madison West, 28-26. Well, it's been a good, tough pull all year. We left Lyntis
battered, but still breathing.
March 5-We put on a repeat performance last night in Edgerton-that is, the boys did. As pre-
arranged, we met the janesville women, but noddings happened. Ask jake about: "Phht! What a
March 8-Everyone spent a rather dull evening last night. Movie, cokes, and jokes at the jay-an-
Ess. Oh well, it's fun to be homey now and then.
March 9-The interclass tournament started tonight in all its glory. The games are attracting huge
crowds of females cheering their rugged Romeos on to victory. The two Cinnys, frosh babes, seem
to cheer loudest for the sophs.
March 10-Everyone is excited about tryouts for the junior-senior class play, "Ever Since Evef' So
if you come across some starry eyed thing mumbling something about "love and the newspaper"-
forget it. She probably just has hopes of being a great actress.
March 11-"Oh, Leonan surprised a lot of hep cats today as Corbett's Cwartette swung and sweeted
in assembly. We're all humming "Oh, Leona, she's the sweetest gal about! Oh, Leona, everybody
takes her out!"
March 12-Dick's, Wippet's, and Stink's "Private Party" on joe turned out to be a raging success.
Despite competition, the boys raked in a few Shekels and had quite a celebration the ensuing evening.
March 15-Did you know that rich cloth can be made from skim milk? Well, Mr. johnson knows,
and much other stuff too. He interspersed his amazing facts with corny jokes-but cute.
March 16-Let us hope that the audience for the class play gets as big a kick out of Lucybelleis
1 Shirley BJ and Iohnny's f Bill EJ barter scene as they did at practice last night. They all had
heavy lids this morning. Forensic contests today. More fun!
March 17-Weary Willie and his junior high pals brought back to some of us fond memories of the
days when we were excitedly performing for the "high schooool kids."
March 18-"Oh, phooey, I just got an old straight 'Al average againf' That is one of those things
that has never been said in S. H. S. Afterthought: Unless by Dick S.
March 19-junior High Plays, the cinema, and Madison's attractions entertained the majority of
us tonight. Wethinks the Madison bounders had more fun. Ask Flint!
March 22-After the "wust winter wutheri' in history, spring has come at last. CWe,ve got our fin-
gers crossedlj Here's a little poem we just heard.

for four bouncing baby jeeps.

'n Cirlv party. Half the attendants looked lovely in overalls, tramp suits, or sack cloth and ashes.

her speech-but she put it across. Three cheers for the Victory Corps!

Some Ioe from somewhere talked about rabbit and ermine and skunk and fox in assembly today.
March 29-Poor, poor Terry got dragged off to Madison and into its various places of attraction by
no less than five glamour boys last night. She is still present and accounted for with apparently no ill
effects. Flint and Sandsmarkls dance Wasnit quite as successful as its predecessor, but almost every-
one had a fine time.
March 30-,Tis spring and you know what. The air is fair and it looks as though March will go
out like a lamb. Thatis enough proverbs for today.

day. We hope they keep them.
