Text from Pages 1 - 80 of the 1954 volume:
Since desk tops have a tale to tell, we have chosen them for the theme of your 1954 Yahara. We hope that this device will aid in bringing back memories of your days at S.H.S.
STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL STOUGHTON, WISCONSINIn the fall of 1949, Mr. Wayne Shumate accepted the position of American History teacher in Stoughton High School. Along with his teaching duties, he coached boxing and baseball, and was assistant coach for football and basketball.
Though we miss Mr. Shumate in our school, we wantto wish him success in his new position.
Thus we take pleasure in dedicating our 1954 Yahara to Mr. Wayne Shumate.
The school has three governing organizations, Student Council, Youth Council and the Athletic Board.
Student Council, advised by Mr. Gibbon, is made up of the vice president of each club and two representatives from each class. The officers this year were: Beverly Johnson, president; Barbara Olson, vice president; Jackie Wright, secretary; and Gail Grieg, treasurer.
This year Student Council sponsored the Homecoming events, planned assemblies , made basketball programs and investigated certain projects, such as, student recognition.
The Youth Council under the direction of Mr. Brandt, made the recreational plans for this year. Their main job was to keep the Youth Center open on Saturday nights.
An old-time Halloween dance, a Christmas dance, and the annual Twirp Season were among the activities sponsored by Youth Council.

Hello there! This is Dave Zemke on Station SHS on Viking's Air Base at Stoughton, Wisconsin, recently made the capital of the Universe. Today June 7, 1994, the Senior Class of '54, is having a double celebration; their 40th class reunion, and the unanimous victory of Rose Ann Loftus.who has just been chosen the firstwoman president of the Universe, and the election of Ann Sveum as Vice President.
The first arrival here today is Dave Torgeson.now running the Universal Taxi Service, (I'll take you from Here to Eternity), with his passengers, Mme. Laureen Klongland, famed instructor of "Space Ballet", accompanied by her pupils, Ken Kuehni, Arne Halverson, Howard Gyland, Howard Clemens, and Wayne Gunderson. They came early to practice a new dance step.
The next rocket ship has just landed (this one from Jupiter), and Richard Ved-vig, David Sundby, Jackie Peterson, Delbert Dahl, and Wayne Larsen exit. They now own the Jupiter Jive House, where they sell their Jupiter Joy Juice. Wait! I hear loud voices and it sounds like it is Wayne Nelson, Peter Jarvis, and Paul Bitter arguing over a card game. Just like the good old days.
Here come the entertainment for the day, provided by the Jive House; the two planeteers, Audrey Spilde and James Stai.with their accompanist, Corrine Alsmo and her space-accordion. I hope they brought along their new hit record, "Swingin From A Star." Doreen McKercher, professional comedian at the Jive House, is now proceeding from the rocket ship with Kathleen Linderud, hat check girl at the Jive House.
In the distance I see Arne Dullum andArlyn Waag racing with comets and falling stars in their urami im plated jet mobiles. I sure hope they make it on time.
Descending on Stoughton is a beautiful space ship, bearing the name "Moonlight Cruise." At the wheel, I see Paul Paulson, now co-partner with Nancy Ot-teson, proprietor of "Moonlight Inn" on the moon.
Rumor has it that Marcia Onsurd and Curt Hoffman are still fighting over who can concoct the heaviest "moonshakes" at the Inn.
Through the air comes the "flying basketball champs, "Hawk's Amazons." They are captain Audrey Oncken, Jean Helly, Arlene Quam, JoAnn Brandt, Gladys Anderson, and Florence Stanford. This all-girl team is coached, of course, lay none other than Marvin Hawkinson.
Captain Royal Severin, Bob Iverson, Ronnie Vike, Bob Severson, and Thayne Anderson will be a trifle late today due to heavy traffic. They're the new space cadets, you know.
The distinguished and dignified Frank Burger, brilliant inventor of the new space rocketthat women cannot drive, and sole occupant of Pluto, (he lives alone and likes it) is now descending from his rocket ship.
From Uranus comes multi-millionaire Fred Moore, who owns, among numerous other investments, a factory which produces his well known assets to the movie industry, "The Morescope". Accompanying him, are Bill Veum, archictect, whose brilliant designing made Stoughton buildings so ultra-modern and Frances Obrect, girl wonder, who invented "Toothless Tooth Powder". Piloting this ship are Roger Nygaard, Charles Hardwick, Bob Moll, and Bruce Doane.
Roaming among all these celebrities is Gene Ehle, covering the event for his newspaper, "The Daily Chronic."
Ken Kluever, captain of Interplanetary Athletics, has just made his appearance at the air base. This time he is alone.
20The next rocket ship is owned by the well-known Pat Edwards, who made herself famous by designing a new and different space suit. Sharron Havey and Jeanette Scheldrup are here to model them for the crowd. Also with them are Marshall Wake and Robert "Boob" Miller, now owners of the "We Make 'Em Spacious Modeling School".
Landing next at the base is a ship from Saturn bringing Pat Hvam, Frances Joint, Donna Nygaard, Helen Burgoyne, and Wilma Schulter. They are the discoverers of the "diamond" mine on Saturn.
Arriving in their ship from Neptune, famous for its space resorts, are the King and Queen of the Aquacades, Duke Radecki and Marlene Skaar.
It looks like someone has become seasick from the trip. The space-maids from Neptune, Nancy Julseth, Barbara Crawford, Suzanne Slinde , Yvonne Wilberg, and Joyce Quamme are frantically holding Ralph Gullickson's head who has become desperately ill. As always, he's surrounded by beautiful girls.
Bob Eddingsaas rushes from his rocket ship which has just landed, to hurry over to Utica, to get a "supersonic permanent wave" at Madame Erma Staff's Masculine Beauty School. What happened to his waves?
Donavan Seamonson, who now writes the "Dear Donavan Dix" column in the "Daily Chronic," whose most faithful correspondents are Ann Iverson and Sonja Homme, has arrived with Judy Havey, editor of the "How To Diet" section for over-weight woman.
Zooming in on their twin rocket ships are Roberta and Robert Murkve from Earth's twin planet, Venus.
It seems as though everyone is here, except JoAnn Wethal, Joanne Koch, Jackie Wright, Beverly Brunt, Joan Anderson, Marilyn Brickson, and Joan Trembly. Wait! I just received a message from the control tower at the base. It says that these girls send their regrets that they couldn't come, but they were having a party out on Mercury and they just couldn't get away.
The last arrival is Beverly Johnson, queen of the universal cheerleaders, who had been giving last minute instructions to next year's yellers.
As I walk back to the capital building, I hear the five-piece band, "The Moon-liters", Tom Hooker, Dean Horner, Ronnie Sperle, John Onsurd, and Blenner Hoffman blowing their lungs out.
Also I see Donald Spilde and Don Swenson, practicing up for their boxing match this afternoon. They are both holders of fifty-four boxing titles.

FOOTBALL. This year the Stoughton Vikings has a very successful football season. The team, which had 17 returning lettermen won 6 games, lost 1 game and tied one game. The Vikings only defeat was by the Conference Champs, in a very exciting game which kept the opponents on their toes all the time.
This defeat made the Viking lose their chance for a tie for 1st place and put them in second place which still was quite an achievement.
The success of the season was due to the fine spirit of the team and the excellent job of coaching.
The Viking captain this year was Marvin Hawkinson, and Duke Radecki was voted most valuable play er by the members of hts team.
On the 1st team Duke Radecki and Ken Kuehni were elected for both the offensive and defensive teams with Pete Jarvis, for offensive team while both Dave Utter, and Ronnie Nelson were elected for the defensive.
On the second team Jim Quam was elected for the defensive team and Dave Utter, for Offensive back.

BASKETBALL Practice for basketball began on Nov. 9th with the returning of four lettermen, Duke Radecki, Ken Kuehni, Pete Jarvis, and Don Hoverson.
Even though the Vikings lost some of their games, they gave their opponents a very rough time. One of the most thrilling games of the season was the one with Middleton. It was a very exciting game, with the Vikings coming out ahead by one point. Also the games with our rivals, Edgerton, were very exciting, close games, as they have always been. Even in the games they lost, the Vikings put up a hard battle.
The Vikings had a successful year, due to the fine coaching of Leif Holm.Row Is C. Overland, J. Peterson, R. Grady, P. Hawkinson, Barton Barr, Bruce Barr, J. Broughton, R. Horner, D. Asleson, Row 2: Mr. Matthias, J. Skoien, E. Anderson, B. Doane, P. Turner, G. Thorpe, W. Atkinson, T. Pliner.

This year with the start of the publications class much of the work on the Parrot and the Yahara has been done during the school day. The class taught by Mr. Thiel, adviser of Parrot and Yahara, meets every day. This set up permits fixing of responsibility and greater care in the preparation of the Publications.
The Parrot issued about every two weeks, contains school news, fashions, gossip, and features. Class time is used by the Parrot staff to plan issues, copy reading and writing, making layouts, and typing.
The Yahara Staff is kept busy writing articles, planning page layouts, cropping pictures, and doing anything else required to meet deadlines.
There are many members of the Parrot and Yahara staffs who are not in this class since this class is not a requirement for staff membership.

The Stoughton High School Band under the direction of Mr. Lee had a very successful year. The Band played at the football games, and the pep band played at the basketball games. The Band displayed some very bright and snappy marching during the halves of the football games. At Homecoming they put on a special skit depicting costumes of by gone eras. The Band made the number8 of the years of the era, and while they were playing music to fit that time a few members of the band would parade in front dressed as they did in those days. The Band had a lot of fun doing this and the audience had as much fun watching it. The pep band played at all the home basketball games. They kept the spirit up with their peppy marches and their arrangement of the song "Dragnet" which the students and audience enjoyed.
This fall the Band was invited to march during the half of the Whitewater fotoball

The activities of the Band are numerous. Some of their appearances were the Christmas program, Massed Band Concert at Lake Mills, and the annual spring concerts, one in March, and the other in May. Also this year the Band participated in the Open House that was held in March. The Band was given a piece of music that they hadn't seen before, and showed the audience how they go about practicing a new piece. Other occasions for which the Band plays are Memorial Day, and any other important occasion.
The Band also participated in the White -water solo and ensemble contest and participated in the annual Whitewater contest that is held each spring.
The Band and Mr. Lee should be congratulated on the fine work that they did this year.

G. A. A.
The 1953-1954 G.A.A. activities started off with a bang when the officers, Night G.A.A., Pres. Bev Johnson; Vice Pres. Jackie Wright; Sec. Jeanette Scheld-rup; Noon G.A.A. Pres. Rose Ann Loftus; Vice Pres. Ann Svuem; Sec. Carmen Haley, and Janet Johnson who is the treasurer of both, who were elected last spring, planned our annual "get acquainted" party. This party included both noon and night G.A.A. After this party the two groups started their volleyball elimination contests.
This year the winners of the Noon G.A.A. volleyball contest were the members of A. Quam's team and L. Lockwood's team who took the Championship in Night G.A.A. The Grand Champions were the Noon G.A.A. players.
The pins worn around Homecoming time were sold by G.A.A. On these pins was a picture of the team.During the latter part of the volleyball tournament the officers were spending their time working out a theme and plans for a float for the Homecoming parade. The theme that they agreed on was "Grind 'Em Up". Committees were chosen to work on the actual decorating of the float. Miss Reek, our very worthy advisor, did much toward helping our float to become a success. Our float was rated as the third prize winner.
The basketball tournament was then started. After captains were chosen for each team, the same eliminating procedure was followed as in volleyball. The winners of each G.A.A. group played each other determining the grand champion.
At the final meeting of the joint groups of noon and night G.A.A., a fine meal was served after which the officers handed down their office emblem to the new
officers which had been recently elected. We all enjoyed the very fine speaker and entertainment which was provided. This banquet closed the activities of this 53-54 school year.

This year the Junior Class chose as their Class play a comedy in three-acts, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay," written by Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough.
Too much credit cannot be given to Miss Miriam Glocke, whose capable direction made this play a complete success.
The story is centered around two A-merican girls who are on their way to Paris, France, to take voice and acting lessons from anoted French teacher. Their parents were also going along, but on a different ship. The era in which the play was written was 1920's; therefore, the costumes added much to the amusement of it. All in all the play was enjoyed by everyone.

The play takes place in London in the St. James Theater where Sir Charles Jasper, an author, and his wife Beatrice are giving a party to celebrate Sir Charles' 40th birthday. If Sir Charles was alive at 11:00 P. M. O'clock on his birthday, she would inherit 2 million dollars. Maurice Mullens, a relative of Sir Charles, will receive the money if Sir Charles dies.
Then at the party where Sir Charles and Maurice Mullen are alone working on Maurice Mullen's book, Maurice tricks Sir Charles into writing a suicide note and then poisons him.
Sir Charles also has written a book that said that the night that he is to be murdered a dumb woman will appear. She will talk and then die a horrible death. From her body the ghost of Sir Charles appears. Then when Maurice Mullens, the murderer, sees this he goes insane and confesses to the murder.

The A Cappella opened its season this year in a new location and under the direction of a new conductor. It is now located in the community building and is under the capable direction of Miss Dorothy Strommen.
This year, as in other years, the A Cappella was made up of approximately fifty students, who all share a mutual interest in music. They all enjoy singing in general and therefore made a very entertaining group.
This year there were more entrants in the Whitewater solo and ensemble festival than in the past few years. They consisted of solos, duets, quartettes, a triple trio, and a double quartette. They all did a very fine job.
During the rest of the year, the A Cappella members and Miss Strommen gave several performances at various places. In December they participated in the annual Christmas Pageant and in the high school Christmas assembly. The month of January was spent selecting and rehearsing music for the two spring concerts. During the first part of February, the A Cappella sent fourteen of its members to Fort Atkinson for the Mass Chorus Concert. In March the entire choir went to Fort to present a concert.
A combined concert by both A Cappella and band was presented in April. The rest of that month was spent rehearsing the music for the festival in May. The final performances of the A Cappella were at Baccalaureate and Commencement in June.
In all the A Cappella had a very successful year.
