Gymnasium-A rmorry 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 nothing-to-do blues. 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 our city.

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.

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.

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- acter attributes. 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. Spoon and Spade From the six girls rank- ing highest scholastically in the junior class, Bev- erly Hocking was elected by her classmates to re- ceive the traditional and be-ribboned spoon. Robert Thompson Was chosen from the six high- est ranking boys iII the junior class to hold the spade. AWARDS ALMOST ANYONE of average intelligence can 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 cozigratulated. l Lions Club Awards The Lions Club at the close of each school year recognizes the students who have maintained the highest grade aver- age throughout their high school studies. Medals are presented to those students who rank highest in each of the different fields. The following are the winners: Mathematics H , RICHARD SPEIILI: Science W, , RICHARD SPIsnLE Vocational no josIsPH IIANSON Social Science , . , , BILL EVERSON English , , or BILL EVERSON l Lions Club Awards J.

The winner of the American Legion Award is determined on the basis of athletic ability, character, scholastic ree- ord, tlllfl leadership. jim Hts thc quali- fications to a "Tv, llis records oII the football and basketball fields of battle will long be reinembered.

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 21 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 title. 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 Sub-Debs aroundf, "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- phates. eff? 'bf 43- I-':."' 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 con uer. 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.

September 14, 1942, dawned bright and cheery, but for the new "freshies" it was a day of mis- fortune. Mystified, the new students run from one room to another trying to find the room in which they were supposed to be. The boys would dash over to gym only to be sent ont, very embarrassed, when told it was the girls, period. The girls would wander into the machine shop While looking for their home ec. classes. However, these are natilral mistakes und, after taking everything into consideration. this year's class is one of the best so fur. The boys We tried but only blundefred. are very prominent in sports. and the girls are doing a swell job in C. A. A. and Girl Reserves. Being thrown off the main street bridge is a very unpleasant sensation. At least many frozen "frosh" lads tell us so. but it is all a part of the The sophomores gave their party first.

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- masf, 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.

PROM Though slightly curtailed, fthere were no tails! D Formals still swirledg there were still handsome males. Long, full skirts swished and swirled amongst the fresh blossoms of flowers and the green leaves of spring. The white picket fence and the apple blossoms overhead gave the effect of a garden party. The room was furnished with lounging chairs for the chaperons and the couples who preferred to sit this one out. To add to the beauty of the atmosphere, there were sparkling lights of gorgeous colors everywhere. This, in a very brief fashion, describes the decorations of the 1943 Prom. The annual formal dance was, for the first time, held in our new gymnasium. The couples danced to the smooth music of Norm Kingsley's orchestra and throughout the evening they were soothed by the "Pause That Refreshesf, "King, Richard Onsrud and his "Queenn, Mildred Benson, added their majestic touch as they led the couples in the grand march, the big event of the evening. During intermission, Marylis Showers pre- sented Beverly Hocking with the Spoon, and the Spade was given to Robert Thompson by Ken- neth Halverson. The Class Will was read by Barbara Lewis and james Iorgenson, and the Class Prophecy by Robert Sundby. The beauty and splendor of the Prom of must be credited to the junior class, Miss Beck, and the hard working committees of the junior class, which were as follows: Decoration commit- teer Robert johnson, Phoebe Smithback, chair- meng Sue Rippchen, Karen Rustad, George Becker, Vergene Sandsmark, Mary Lacy, Patsy Amundson, Georgia Halverson, Paul May, Car- eth Ray, Fred La Leike, Carol Kittleson, Mary jane Riley, june Waunhaugen and Lorraine Visaas.

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 school with young people two or three years older. Susan has been appointed girls' editor The crowd liked it so well they hated to leave. 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 elope. 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. The Cast of Ever Since E ue "My new formal Mother sent me-and my silver slippers with high heelslv Voice: "Oh, no, john! No!

"To find and give the best" 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.

The best men of all carry the Stoughton High ball. FRED LALEIKE-"Junior" was the guard who was used at backing up the line. He was always in the right place to stop them. JOHN LUEDKE-"Ludv was in there plugging, both physi- cally and mentally, and filling any hole at tackle. He will be back next year for bigger and better things. ROBERT JOHNSON--Slll7Stltllte fullback, "Bohn showed speed and deceptiveness, proving to be one of the trickiest runners on the squad. HARLAN METZLER-A seasoned veteran while only a junior, Harly covered his job like the sixty minute man he was. RICHARD ONSRUD-"Dick', was the sparkplug of the for- ward wall and played like the all-conference tackle he was. LEE ONSRUD-'KUIlCl6 B." fought at tackle and was a tough man to move out of plays and to break through. WILLARD STUVETRAA-KKWllllB,, was the only sophomore who won a letter, and he really earned it as a hard- running halfback. IAMES SMITHBACK-Line plunging fullback "jim" was the key to our offense as an all-conference repeater. DAVID NATVIG-"Captain Davey called signals and was on the bottom of most of the piles. FRANK ANDERSON-"Frankie" was the speed merchant on the squad and was pass catcher extraordinary. ROBERT SUNDBY-"Bob" was the small boy on the team and was exceptionally good at getting behind the sec- ondary. Howaan H0LT,xN-"Abe" always took out the interfer- ence on end runs and never lacked the fighting spirit. DURCESS SAMPsoN-"Burg" was a bulwark of the line and always in the opponents' backfield. I.xxIEs joRcENs0N-"Corbett" seldom failed us on center plunges or on runs through guards. EDWIN LUNDE-A real giant in the line, "Eddie', was immovable as far as opponents were concerned. RICHARD SPERLE-"S arrown was a defensive enius P and could always sense just where the play was going. LAWRENCE SKOIEN-uLllg,S,, passes from center were effect, and his linehucks left nothin to be desired. P i. ROBERT GREFSHElhI1g4Bilbbl8,, was a first string quar- terback and was especially artful on the returning of punts.

RICHARD JACOBSEN-"Jake" was a hard running halfback who combined s eed and ower to ain manv recious d P P . var s. BYRON CRossE-Playing with an injured knee, "Crosse" was elusive enough to slip through for much needed yardage. CHARLES MCCARTHY-"Chuck', combined speed and full spinners to set up many touchdowns. CLAIRE NELSON-"Curly" looked after the equipment, the towels and the water pail, and answered the wails of all the players. He worked hard for the benefit of the team.

KENNETH HALXVERSON-A1lOtll6l' senior who will be sorely missed, Kenny was always a valuable rebound man and, with his spirit, he led the team in the tournament. ROBERT JOHNSON-B0b, a junior, was the best shot on the team. Playing either guard or for- ward, he used a one hand push shot for many timely buckets. I IAINIES SMITHBACK-Captain jim closed a great athletic career as he led the "Purple,' in scoring. As Coach Jarvis puts it, "I never saw a high school player with more endurance and fighting spiritf, HOWARD CUNDERSON - Our best offensive guard. While only a sophomore, Howie was our best dribbler and floor man and always kept cool in the tight spots. FORD HORN-AllOthC1' sophomore. Frosty's drive for rebounds and his all around defensive play could not be denied. CLAIR NELSON-Curly, the Manager, got the least credit, but did the most dirty work, and perhaps could be counted as the teamls most valuable all around man. BASKETBALL LETTERMEN l . als . MESS. 5 .

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.

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.

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- storm. 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 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 man, already. 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.

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 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.

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 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 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.

FEBRUARY 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 puing formaldehyde. 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.

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.

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.

MARCH March 1-"Teach me how to swear in Latin!', said Phoebe S. after seeing the Edgerton game.
