PIPER It is with mixed emotions that we, the class of '55, leave the portals of Thorp High School. The past four years which we have spent here have been a milestone in our lives, and, as the years pass, we will look back with fond memories to the days when we found work and play alike so enjoyable here. So, it is that we, with sad hearts, but high hopes for the future, bid thee a fond farewell, Thorp High School. F O W s It is with a deep sense of appreciation for your many unceasing efforts, that we, the class of '55, gratefully dedicate our Seniorian to you, Mr. Wenninger. THE SEN IORIAN STAFF S1fnm'z'ng: MR. KORPAL, NANCY LINDQUIST, ANNRTTE HOKKANEN, BERNICR BUTTRRFIRLD, KATHLRIQN BADZINSKI Seated: DOROTHY BADZINSKI, GORDON CZYZRWICZ, NEIL BROEREN, RUTH BOOUMILL, RICHARD ALGIR IJONFLDA KARNOPP. With the presentation of this, the annual of 1955, we, the Seniorian Staff, hope that our work in preparing the year book will bring you much satisfaction in looking back on the happenings of the past school year. Early in the fall Mr. Korpal, as the advisor, chose his staff. Ruth Bogumill was chosen as Editor-in-Chief and with her assistant, Nancy Lindquist, began planning the Work to be done. Kathleen Badzinski, Literary Editor, was aided by Donelda Karnopp and Annette Hokkanen in preparing the various write-ups. Neil Broeren as the Sports Editor ably handled that department. With the guidance of a circus theme, Dorothy Badzinski called upon her artistic talents in the capacity of Art Editor. Gordon Czyzewicz, Photographer, took charge of handling the all-important pictures. Mr. Doyle, of Medford, was responsible for the photographing of group pictures, which add so much to the annual. For the ve1'y important job of getting money for the publication, Richard Alger was selected as Business Manager. The entire staff chose Bernice Butterfield as Junior Editor, whose job it is to learn how this book was put together to guide the planning of next year's Seniorian. At this time we wish to express our thanks to all other persons who have aided us, for we are truly grateful. And as you now look through your annual, We hope that ours may be commended as a job well done.

Publication time reminds us that another school year is soon history. The highlights and events of interest are made a matter of record on the pages of the Seniorian. I feel positive that the Editor-in-Chief and her lieutenants have been wide awake to the happenings of this school year that have been worthy of reporting. Thus The 1955 Seniorian provides the record that the Seniorian StaH deemed worthy of recording' for future years. This record is made in both picture and script to add interest and variety. Time will fade the memory but the pages of The 1955 Seniorian will ever remain authentic and reliable in retaining' the true record. Again it is my happy privilege to extend congratulations to Mr. Korpal and members of The Seniorian Staff upon the completion and publication of The 1955 Seniorian. I can assure you that your eHorts are appreciated. Congratulations and sincere thanks. Sincerely, NEWELL E. QUALLE MR. ROY BREDE, B.S.

COLORS: Red and White FLOWER: Carnation SEN ICR CLASS HISTORY We, the class of '55, entered the portals of Thorp High School on September 5, 1951. We numbered 62 and were as green as they come. Mr. Chrapla, acting as our advisor, guided us through our first year. It was with pride that we elected our class officers. The first event was our initiation which officially made us underclassmen. We were justifiably proud when Patricia Kuester was the high salesman of the Curtis Drive, having sold over S161 worth of subscriptions. Several of our boys went out for basketball and football. Thus ended our first year at Thorp High School. The following September we returned as en- thusiastic, ambitious sophomores. With Miss Dunn as our advisor, we again elected our class officers. We were quite at home in high school now. The biggest event, we thought, was the fresh- man initiation, which, in our opinion, was the most terrible yet. Several Sophomore boys won letters that year in football. They were: Neil Broeren, Robert Benz- schawel, Gordon Hansen, and John Maier. A few went out for basketball, too. And then at last the long awaited day arrived and we were Juniors. Upperclassmen! Under the guidance of Mr. Amundson and Mr. Witzig we elected our officers: Neil Broeren, Presi- dent, Robert Benzschawel, Vice Presidentg and Kathleen Badzinski, Secretary-Treasurer. We had a good representation on the football and basketball teams from our class and many re- ceived their "T's." The next undertaking was the Junior paper, the "Thorp Hi-Sign," edited by Kathleen Badzinski and Nancy Lindquist, with Mr. Wenninger acting as advisor. The Junior class play was the next important undertaking. "Arsenic and Old Lace," was presented under Mr. Wenninger's direction and proved to be most successful. The biggest event was the Junior Prom, beauti- fully decorated to the theme of "Madame Butterfly." King Neil Broeren and his queen Cathy Conway were attended by Robert Benzschawel and Kathleen Badzinski. We had made another Prom a success and also history. The year finally ended, and we were dignified Seniors. The year began with the Homecoming. Neil Broeren reigned as King, since he had been chosen football captain. Shortly after, we began work on the Senior class play, "For Love and Money," a three act comedy, under the direction of Mr. Wenninger. It proved to be a fine production. The "Cardinal Hi-Lites" staff was chosen, and the paper was edited by Donelda Karnopp. Mrs. Swanson advised the staf, which published the column every week. The Seniors sponsored or worked with such things as "Anything Goes," Girls' Prom, and the Mardi Gras. Our most important undertaking this year has been the year book. With Ruth Bogumill as Editor- in-Chief and Mr. Korpal as advisor, we produced a Seniorian of which we are very proud. And so, having completed a memorable four years of our education, we bid Thorp High School a fond farewell, and hope that our future will be as bright as these past four years have been.

School Orchestra at the Christmas Ball Page Eighteen CLASS PROPHECY Mr. Korpal, the retired business teacher, de- cided to fly down to Milwaukee in his helicopter for the Ringling Brothers' Circus, which is hold- ing its centennial, the year being 1969. On the way down he had to stop off at the Schultze Air- port to refuel. To his surprise, he found that Ronald "Dutch" Schultze had bought out the United Airlines and had a thriving business. His top mechanic turned out to be Leon Kotecki, who had just invented a 600 horse power motor for a car. It was getting late, so he bade them goodbye and started once moreon his trip to Milwaukee. He arrived there late that afternoon, and parked his helicopter on the Schroeder Hotel. He was soon settled in his room. The head bell hop, Dean Liazuk, brought his luggage in to him. Dean told him that Donald Mikolainis was there at the hotel too, and he was giving lessons in dancing. He had far surpassed Arthur Murray. The next morning, he went out to the circus grounds early to look around. He was very much interested in the strong woman, who turned out to be Patricia Kuester, and the fat man, Richard J arocki. It is rumored that they are to be married in the fall. Mr. Korpal left them then to discover a side show that looked very interesting, indeed. It was Phil, the lion tamer, and for several seconds, he didn't recognize that it was Phillip Soper, the quiet boy from Thorp. His companion was Ruth Bogumill, who with her quick wit and vitality makes his work much more pleasant. Several boys were feeding the elephants, and Mr. Korpal stopped to watch them. A young man approached him and introduced himself as Bob Benzschawel. The truth of the matter was, Bob Benzschawel, formerly from Thorp, had married Annette Hokkanen and had come to work for the circus. It was time for the afternoon big top show, so Mr. Korpal proceeded to the tent. He bought his ticket and was ushered to his seat by cigarette girl, Estelle Wargolet. Looking around, he found that Richard Alger was sitting behind him. Richard happened to be in Milwaukee for a Medi- cal Convention. The show began, and Mr. Korpal centered his attention upon it. The bare-back riders were the first attractions, and to his surprise he saw Dorothy Deutschlander on the first horse. Richard told him that Dorothy had recently married the well-known horse doctor, Gordon Czyzewicz. From the side of the tent came a parade of circus clowns in all their hilarious costumes. Mr. Korpal soon found that Casimir Pawlicki and Jude Schmidt had been voted the "funniest clowns in history." The next event was the trampoline act, a husband and wife team, Alice Sciezor and Chester Przybylski. They are well known for their per- fectly timed stunts. The afternoon performance was soon over. Mr. Korpal found himself very hungry by this time, so he decided to find a reputable restaurant. The first one that caught his eye was Carl's Steak House. He was shown to a table by head waiter Bernard Dobrzynski. He told Mr. Korpal that the owner of the restaurant was none other than Carl Johnson, Jr. Having completed his meal, Mr. Korpal de- cided to see some sights. The first building he came across was the Milwaukee Braves Building. The Braves had won the pennant for five con- secutive years and had just signed a contract with "Fireball Maier" alias John "Huntz" Maier, as pitcher. Then who should he bump into but a tall thin- faced young man who was none other than Edward Bieno. Ed told him that he had just won the Nobel Peace Prize. He was on his way to see Neil Broeren, U. S. Ambassador to Russia, to dis- cuss a recent trip that Neil had just made there. The next thing that Mr. Korpal saw was a tiny building set off from the street. Upon inquiry he found that it belonged to Louis Carpenter and his wife, the former Marjorie Kodl. He found that Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter had recently started a small tooth pick factory and produce thousands for Milwaukee's use. Milwaukee had certainly grown, and with it grew Robert Smith, well-known politician, who had recently married the former Pauline Kramicz. He was running for Governor in the coming election. Mr. Korpal was about to start back to the hotel when he heard someone yell, "Extra, Extra." Of course, it was George Welciek peddling his evening paper. Mr. Korpal bought one and, glanc- ing hurriedly through it, found that the well- known newspaper columnist Donelda Karnopp had just returned from Borneo. He was approaching the Schroeder Hotel when he saw a low limousine draw up in front of the hotel. From it emerged Justin Jakowicz, the millionaire. He was iiying to Reno in the morning to get his fifth divorceg this one was from the former Nancy Lindquist. Just then a cab drew up and a voice asked, "Cab, mister?" To Mr. Korpal's surprise he found that the voice belonged to Archie Soborowicz. Archie told him as he got in that Gordon Hansen had purchased the yellow cab business from Florence Przybylski. Florence, it seems was buying oil stocks in Texas. Archie stopped in front of a 26 story build- ing. Mr. Korpal looked up and saw the name on the building which reads UMICKE 8z MICKE, BADZINSKIQBADZINSKI INCORPORATED." Joanne and Armon Micke and Dorothy and Kath- leen Badzinski had started the "BADMICKE" corselet factory, which has zoomed in popularity. Father up the street was a theater. The star billing for the evening was James Winger's dance band and his famous chorus girls: Jean Vetter- kind, Lillian Maziarka, Dorothy Grabowski, and Gertrude Barth. Feeling that he had seen enough of the sights, Mr. Korpal decided to go back to the hotel and pack his suitcase to start back for Thorp, where he has told all his friends about his encounter with the class of '55. Page Nineteen . ef M DONALD RYNIEC JAMES BISER JOSEPHINE HMIELAK President Vice President Secretary-Treasurer JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY With the aid of our class advisors, Mr. Witzig and Mr. Nuskiewicz, we, as new upper classmen, elected class officers as follows: Donald Ryniec, President, James Biser, Vice President, and Josephine Hmielak, Secretary-Treasurer. David Guell and Bernice Butterfield were chosen to rep- resent us on the Student Council. Dave Guell was selected as the attendant for the first big event of this year, the Homecoming. He chose Bernice Butterfield as his partner. We did very well by winning first place in the float contest. Roger Benzschawel, James Biser, David Guell, Bill Harycki, John Klick, Donald Ryniec, Rex Schmidt, Eugene Wilhelm, and Jerome Wnek gave a good representation for our class in foot- ball. Of these, David, James, and Bill acquired letters. James Schauer, Louis Platt and Michael Bogumill gave them aid as managers. David Guell, Bill Harycki, Paul Harycki, James Schauer, Donald Ryniec, and Rex Schmidt participated in basketball, and Rex, James, Bill, and David won a "T" in this sport. Several boys also went out for baseball. In spring a large group of us took part in Forensics: Roger Benzschawel, James Biser, Michael Bogumill, Dorothy Gollhardt, David Guell, Darlene Gulczynski, Jackie Hedler, Josephine Hmielak, Dorothy Kliminski, Mary Ellen Pabich, Ruth Smigaj, and Mariane Staniec. During the year we put out several editions of our paper, Card Clips. Darlene Gulczynski and Bernice Butterfield directed an able staff. Mr. Wenninger most capably directed our class play "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court." The cast is to be congratulated for a fine performance. The most important event of the year for us was the Junior Prom, which was held on April 30, and was reigned over by Donald Ryniec and Mary Ellen Pabich, With this we closed our Junior year and look forward to next year when we shall return as "lordly" Seniors.

Sophomore Class Officers 'Y :if DONALD SODERBERG ALICE GIWOJNA YVONNE KRUPA President Vve President Secretary-Toceasvlreo' SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY Having completed one year of high school, the Sophomores returned with eager- ness and enthusiasm to continue their education. With Mr. Korpal as their advisor, the class of '57 elected the following class officers: Donald Soderberg, President, Alice Giwojna, Vice Presidentg Yvonne Krupa, Secretary-Treasurer5 and Daniel Winger, S.A.F. Representative. The first big undertaking of the Sophomores this year was the annual initiation held on October 22. The aHair was enjoyed by all - onlookers, that is! The Sophs did very well in the Curtis Drive this year. Under the guidance of their captains, Anne Hedler, Kitty Kenney, and Ray Price they rated as the class which sold the most subscriptions. Daniel Winger was chosen as Homecoming attendant from the Sophomore class. He chose as his partner, Janice Jacques. Anne Hedler was promoted from a B-Team cheerleader to an A-Team cheer- leader, and Kitty Kenney was chosen by the Booster Club as a new B-Team cheerleader. The Sophomore class was well represented in the school sports. Dan Winger, Donald Soderberg, John Klouda, Keith Glasshof, Dale Hokkanen, and Bob Hmielak earned a letter in football. Donald also earned a letter in basketball. John Klouda took high scholastic honors in the Sophomore class by placing on the first semester honor roll. So, with two years of high school already behind them, the Sophomores are looking eagerly, yet seriously, ahead to their next two years as upperclassmen. Page Twenty - two Freshman Class Officers HAROLD HALLANGER BONITA STEWART INGRID LINDQUIST Pfresfrlent Vice Preszdent Secretary-Treasurer FRESI-IMAN CLASS HISTORY The Freshmen began a busy year by choosing their class officers with the help of Mr. Amundson. The officers are: Harold Hallanger, President, Bonita Stewart, Vice President, Ingrid Lindquist, Secretary-Treasurer3 Gerald Boardman, S.A.F. Repre- sentative. Gretchen Parks and Michael Sneider were selected as representatives for the Student Council. They began shortly to prepare themselves for the ordeal of initiation. It wasn't as bad as they thought it would be, so they gladly returned the favor by giving the Sophomores a successful return party. The Freshmen should be proud of coming out among the top of high class sales in the Curtis Drive. Virginia Hendricks helped by becoming the school high salesman, with 35136.78 Their captains were Michael Sneider, Susan Baldeschwiler, and Ingrid Lindquist. Harold Hallanger, Frank Kotecki, Merlin Nevela, Gerald Boardman, James Borowick and Robert Olejniczak took up the part of the class on the football team. Harold was rewarded with a "T" for his work. He was also chosen as Homecoming attendant and escorted Ingrid Lindquist. The Freshmen were happy to have their float take third place in the float contest. Brian Hendriks, Gerald Boardman, and Harold Hallanger participated in basket- ball, and several others went out for baseball. They were proud to have Ingrid Lindquist and Karen Izydorek chosen as B-Team cheerleaders. Just after Christmas vacation the Freshmen began learning their declamations and later came out with seven winners: Jane Conway, Harold Hallanger, Ingrid Lindquist, Michael Sneider, Rosalie Tomkowiak, Brian Hendriks, and Rose Mary Bryniarski. Jane, Harold, and Michael, placed first, second, and third respectively. Thus ended their first year of high school, and they now anxiously await next year when they will no more be plagued by the term: "Green Freshmen." Page Twenty-four X 9 Q3 .4-mf .

A recital was held in March in which all students participated who were to compete in the solo and ensemble contest at Eau Claire on March 25. The Band was also called upon to play at many of the other school activities, such as, pep meetings and at ball games. This year, with the help of the newly formed Band Booster, which took the place of the former Band Mothers, a new set of much needed street drums was purchased. Also purchased was a new drum major outfit. This outfit was purchased to fit Ralph Sherberg, who in the future will lead the band. The band will lose the following seniors through graduation: Richard Alger, cornetg Dorothy Badzinski, saxaphoneg Kathleen Badzin- ski, saxaphoneg Gordon Hansen, drums, Donelda Karnopp, French horny Patricia Kuester, clarinet, and Nancy Lindquist, clarinet.

HOMECOMING COMMITTEE To arrange for the annual Homecoming fes- tivities two members of each class were chosen to serve on the Homecoming Committee. They were: Larry Short, Carol Micke, Anne Hedler, Gerald Olson, James Schauer, Bernice Butterfield, Joanne Micke, Donelda Karnopp, and James VVinger. Under the direction and supervision of Mr. Boehm and Mrs. Amundson, this committee was broken down into several sub-committees. Each member was thus in charge of a task in preparing MIXED The 1954-55 Chorus, directed by Mr. Roy Brede, is composed of T4 members, 51 girls and 23 boys. The number of students in chorus is an indication of how this extra-curricular activity is gaining yearly in popularity. The Chorus gave a Christmas Concert in mid- December, and in May entered the music festival at Eau Claire. for Homecoming. Upon the shoulders of these committee mem- bers fell the responsibility of such things as ob- taining firewood for the bonfire, arranging the parade, getting judges, selecting the orchestra for the Homecoming dance, and many other behind- the-scene items. We wish to thank the committee for the fine job they did in assuring the success of another Homecoming. CHORUS To supply the money for the much needed choral risers this year, each member of the chorus was obliged to sell at least one box of Christmas cards. As a result, the choral risers were pur- chased in the spring. The ofiicers for the year are as follows: Carl Johnson, President, Nancy Lindquist, Vice Presi- dent, Bernice Butterfield, Secretary-Treasurerg Anne Hedler, Librarian.

The plot and characters of this three act mystery and comedy are as follows: The entire play takes place in the Brooklyn home of the Brewster family, where Abigail fAnnette Hok- kanenj and Martha Brewster fDorothy Deutsch- landerj, old maid sisters, carry on one of their charities - namely, helping "poor, lonely old gentlemen" to find peace and contentment by offering them home-made elderberry wine with arsenic, strychnine and "just a pinch of cyanide" mixed in. To add to the situation, another Brewster - Teddy fNeil Broerenl who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, buries the victims in the Panama Canal which he has dug in the cellar. The plot thickens when Jonathon Brewster fCarl Johnsonj returns to the home of his youth bringing two friends with him, Dr. Einstein fRichard Algerl and Mr. Spanalzo 1Roger Podholaj, a corpse. The only sane member of the family - Mortimer Brewster fEdward Bienoj, who is in love with Elaine Har- per Cliathleen Badzinskij, rushes madly around getting doctors' signatures on legal papers to commit his family to "Happy Dale Sanitariumf' Other characters, such as the police officers, fRonald Schultze, Chester Przybylski, Leon Kotecki, and Nancy Lindquistj, Mrs. Witherspoon fFlorence Przybylskil, and Mrs. Harper CDonelda Karn0PPl all helped to bring this play to a hilarious and action-packed climax. Much credit must be given to the production staff, consisting of Ruth Bogumill, Dorothy Bad- zinski, Gordie Hansen, Jude Schmidt, Louis Car- penter, Robert Benzschawel, Dean Liazuk, and Estelle Wargolet, for their many hours of work. This play, under Mr. Wenninger's direction, was a great success, and the crowd which attended was the largest in years. Page Thirty-two Stzuuling: Nliss Ronnei, Ruth Bogumill, Sllllllfil llziines.

LIBRARY CLUB The Library Club was formed this year under the direction and guidance of Miss Ronnei. Membership in the Library Club brings with it the responsibility of working during free periods and after school as an assistant librarian. An assistant librarian has such tasks as checking out books, keeping the library in good order, and supervising discipline in the library. Student librarians lighten the load of the chief librarian while they also learn many new things. lingo Thirty-tlirrc STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council, the governing body of the high school was organized five years ago to bring democratic principles to the school. Three seniors are elected to serve on the council. Two students are chosen from each of the other respective classes. This year's work began by electing Ruth Bogumill as President, Bernice Butter- field, Vice President, and Catherine Conway, Secretary-Treasurer. Guided by Mr. Amundson, the council undertook many projects, such as the student handbook, dances, and the Christmas Ball. A great accomplishment of the Student Council this year was the installation of the hall monitor system. This system necessitates every student, upon leaving a classroom during a class period, to present the hall monitor with a colored pass from the classroom teacher. The purpose of this system is to eliminate unnecessary traffic in the halls during classtime. Each student on the Student Council is trying to develop a better understanding of government and its procedure, thereby, making our school a better place in which to live and work.

CURTIS DRIVE Although we did not surpass our set quota in sales dollars this year, we again experienced a very successful Curtis Drive sale which ended with a grand total of Sj52,212.41. As in previous years, the Seniors and Sopho- mores competed against the Juniors and Fresh- men. At the end of the drive we found the Sophomore and Senior team netted a total of S1,112.29, and the Junior and Freshmen team netted a total of 351,100.12 The outstanding class in sales dollars was the Sophomores with a total of 567511. Top sales honors went to a Freshman, Vir- ginia Hendriks. Vir,Q'inia's sales amounted to 513678. As a reward Virginia received a wrist watch and ensemble. At the end of the drive the customary draw- ing was held at which Bonita Stewart was the lucky winner of a beautiful Benrus wrist watch. The winner of the individual salesmanship trophy was Janice Jacques. With the aid of the class captains: Nancy Lindquist, Patricia Kuester, Dorothv Badzinski, Bernice Butterfield, Fred Kenney, Jo Hmielak, Anne Hedler, Kathleen Kenney, Ray Price, Ingrid Lindquist, Susan Baldeschwiler, and Michael Sneider and the two competent secretaries, Ruth Bogumill and Kathleen Badzinski, Thorp High School concluded another successful year of Curtis Drive Sales. 3 T S2 3 Stzimliiigt Bliclizncl Sncimlcr, Ingrid ldiiilquist.

JUNIOR PROM On May 1, 1954, the Thorp High School gym was the setting for a very colorful prom. The gym was decorated with yellow and white streamers, generously sprinkled with butterflies, and strung between Japanese pagodas. White picket fences, literally covered with pink and blue morning glories, bordered the dance floor. This, added to the huge scene which made the background for the volcano at the far end of the gym, carried out the theme for "Madame Butterfly" very well. King Neil Broeren and his Queen Catherine Conway led the grand march and were attended by Robert Benzschawel and Kathleen Badzinski. Very appropriate music for this occasion was furnished by Billy Uthmeier and his Band. Much credit must be given to our advisors, Mr. Amundson and Mr. Witzig, for their many hours of work and all the advice which did so much to make the Prom a success. llugz- 'l'llirtyL-iglit 1 l if ss, M WEL, Upper left: Grand March. 61?

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATIO This year, for the first time in the history of Thorp High School, our school organized a Girls' Athletic Association, under the guidance of Mr. Tetzner. The purpose of the G A.A. is to provide athletic activities for all girls who are interested. Each girl must participate in a set number of inside and outside school sports. This organization is based on the point system, which credits a girl with a designated number of points for each sport in which she participates. When a girl attains the designated number of points, she receives an oiiicial G.A.A. letter. These girls were chosen at the organizational meeting to guide the newly formed club: Kathleen Badzinski, Presidentg Joanne Micke, Vice Presidentg Anne Hedler, Secretary-Treasurer5 Yvonne Krupa, Point Secretary. As members of the executive board the following girls were chosen: Nancy Lindquist, Seniorg Maxine Turenne, Junior, Alice Giwojna, Sophomoreg Ingrid Lindquist, Freshman.

The plot and characters are as follows: Edna Claire iKathleen Badzinskil is a nurse and receptionist who is secretly in love with her employer, Doctor Ralph Emerson fRichard Algerj a young man who has recently finished his internship and is having a hard time building up his practice. Ralph's sister is Gale Emerson tAnnette Hokkanenl, a somewhat sophisticated young lady who is a talented actress. Gale thinks she is in love with Arthur Storm fRonald Schultzel who is a self-centered young television writer. Arthur knew nothing of the plans of Stuart Kingsley QNeil Broerenl who is a likeable young fellow. He thinks he is sincerely in love with Audrey Ward fNancy Lindquistj, a sophisticated and hard-boiled young lady. Audrey doesn't like Stuart's spinster cousin, Myra Kingsley fDonelda Karnoppl. Gertie Mack fRuth Bogumilll is a huskily built nurse who makes short work of Jack Blair CEdward Bienoj, a self-assured young newspaper reporter. All these characters combined brought this play to a fast moving and hilarious climax. A very large and appreciative audience attended the play. Much credit must be given to Mr. Wenninger and the production staff who worked many long hours to help make the play a success.

VETERANS DAY PRQGRAM Again this year the Speech Class presented a program for the newly named Veterans Day. After the presentation of the Flag by the American Legion, the band played the "Star Spangled Banner." Under the direction of Mr. Wenninger, members of the Speech class presented a short one-act play entitled "In Recognition of Democracyf' Those who took part in this play were: David Guell, James Biser, Ruth Smigaj, Darlene Gulczynski, Mariane Staniec, and Dorothy Grabowski. James Biser gave an appropriate oration entitled "An American Tragedy." A quartet consisting of Jacqueline Hedler, Dorothy Kliminski, Dorothy Gollharflt, and Mary Ellen Pabich, sang 'tThe Holy Grail." Following this, the band played a medley of songs suitable for the occasion, and the flag was retired by the American Legion to close the program.

FOOTBALL SCHEDULE Timm' AT SPRING VALLEY The Thorp Cards traveled to Spring Valley where they played their first game of the season in a downpour. Spring Valley scored a 12-0 lead in the first half, and only mid-way through the fourth quarter did the battling Cards begin to even this score. The first touchdown of the season for Thorp was made by our captain, Neil Broeren. The attempted extra point failed to meet its aim, and the game ended a few minutes later with the Thorp Cardinals on the short end of a 12-6 score. CHIPPEXVA FALLS AT THORP Our first home game of the season was the stage of a rough and tough battle between our own Tho1'p Cardinals and Chippewa Falls. On the second play of the game the Chippewa Cards ran 65 yards for the first T.D. In the first quarter the Chippewa Cards successfully broke through the Thorp line for three more touchdowns. However, none of the attempted extra point kicks were successful. It wasn't until the final quarter that our home team managed to put a dent in the scoring column by accurate passes from Don Soderbergg the first to John Maier, and the second to Gordie Hansen. Of the two attempted extra points, we gained one. Thus, another non- conference game ended with Thorp again on the short end of a 24-13 score. T1-IORP AT STANLEY For the traditional rivalry game this year, the Cardinals traveled to Stanley where, in a steady downpou1', the home team met their first conference defeat and their third straight loss. The Orioles copped their first seven points in the first quarter and six more in the second quarter. Although the boys fought hard to hold the record by again defeating the Orioles, the Stanley squad plus the rain proved to be too much for them. Page Forty NEILLSVILLI-1 AT THoRP Next on the agenda came Neillsville. This may be cited as our best game, as the weather was perfect, and we copped our first and only win of the season. Our home team racked up two touchdowns. The first came mid-way in the second quarter on a 10 yard pass from Don Soderberg to Gordie Hansen. The extra point kick failed to reach its mark. The second T.D. came on a sneak play by Soderberg f1'om the 2 yard line. With a successful kick for the extra point, the Cards completed their scoring. The Warriors staged a comeback by immediately breaking through the Cardinal line and scoring a T.D. The extra point attempt was not successful. This game was a bruising defensive battle on the part of both teams, but our own Cardinals proved to be too much for the Warriors. TI-IORP AT CORNELL Next we journeyed to Cornell to play their Homecoming game. This was a sad game indeed, for it seemed our boys couldn't get a start. The Cornell Chiefs hammered out a decisive victory by completing five T.D.'s and two extra points. So, the game ended with our home team short 32 points. OWEN AT THORP Rain again plagued the Cards as they went into battle with Owen. Owen scored six points in the second quarter and seven in the thirdg but Thorp failed to come through and score. Owen copped their first win from the Cardinals in ten years, on a rain-flooded gridiron. CADOTT AT THORP fHonzef-mningy Again the weather was against us, for snow and freezing temperatures prevailed throughout the day. The Cardinals received the opening kick- -eight FCOTBALL SCHEDULE oil' from the Cadott Hornets and rolled T0 yards for the first T.D. A pass from Don Soderberg to John Maier moved the ball to the Cadott 10 yard line and from there Dan Winger romped over the goal line. However, the extra point failed. On the next kick-off the Hornets roared back for a 75 yard touchdown. The point was good, and at the half the score showed no favoriteg standing, Cadott- 7, Thorp - 6. In the third quarter, Cadott came back with the winning touchdown, and the game ended with a sad score: Thorp - 6, Cadott - 13. Although the Cards did not live up to their previous standards in wins and losses, it can be ala ' 1 iq, ,rm-A L said that, win or lose, the team practiced good sportsmanship at all times. The following Senior boys will not be avail- able for service next year: Neil Broeren, Carl Johnson, Bob Benzschawel, Richie Alger, Gordie Hansen, John Maier, Ronald Schultze, Leon Kotecki, Chet Przybylski, Justin Jawokicz, and Bernard Dobrzynski. But as stars leave there are more to fill in the vacated positions, so it is with confidence that we look to our underclassmen to take up where we left off. Congratulations are due Coach Gripentrog and the boys for a fine hard-fought season of football. mt' , . J . K b v vw H' ,W xg Q., 'Q....

Immediately following t.he finish of the football season, Mr. Tetzner called together all the boys inter- ested in playing basketball. A large number of boys responded. At the first meeting, our new coach found that Gordon Hansen was the only returning regular from the previous year's squad. Two reserves, Richard Alger and Richard Jarocki, also returned from the re- serves of the preceding year to fill in the vacated posi- tions. Donald Soderberg and James Schauer, who had also had some previous experience on the regular squad, completed the starting line-up. Later in the season, Coach Tetzner added and substituted freely with John Maier, VVilliam Harycki, David Guell, Rex Schmidt, and James YVinger filling in. VVith the help of the two will- ing and faithful managersg Michael Bogumill and James Biserg Coach Tetzner and a group of hard-work- ing boys, a highly successful season of basketball was enjoyed by Thorp High School. Basketball Schedule Nov. 19 - TIIORP AT ALTOONA. The Cards got off to a bad start in their '54-55 season when they lost the non-conference opener to the Altoona Railroaders, 51-64. The Cards were behind by quite a margin until a third quarter rally brought them within 2 points of a tie. In the fourth quarter Altoona made double the amount of points that our Cards made, to win the ball game. Nov. 23 - Tuonr AT COLFAX. The second non-con- ference game of the season was played with the Vikings of Colfax. The Cards had their first taste of victory when they defeated the Vikings, 61-49. in a nip-and-tuck battle. Trailing 43-41 at the end of the third quarter, our Cards successfully broke through the Viking defense to cop 20 points in the last eight minutes. Hansen took scoring honors with 27 points. Nov. 30 - CIIIPPEXYA AT THORP. Our Cardinals faced defeat as the Chippewa Cards overcame a stub- born Thorp defense on our home court, to win the ball game 39-57. The game was a close one although the score gives a different impression. A Chippewa rally in the fourth quarter proved to be too much for the Thorp Cards. Richard Jarocki paced Thorp with 16 points. 11190. 3 - Gamzxwoon AT Timer. With Gordie hit- ting for 243 points, the Cards defeated Greenwood for lhigi- another non-conference victory. The 41-19 lead at half- time gave Thorp fans an added incentive to cheer our boys on to a 67-37 victory over Greenwood. DEC. 7 - THORP AT OSSEO. The slim 24-21 margin by which the Cardinals led Osseo was no indication of what the outcome of this game was going to be. It seemed that our Cards couldn't get back into the ball game after the halftime period, when the Osseo quint outscored us by a 20 point margin. DEC. 9-THORP AT NE1LLsv1LLi-3. This win over the VVarriors made our record three wins and three losses. The 50-41 victory over Neillsville was a hard fought defensive battle on the part of both teams, but the fine shooting of Rich Alger and Gordie Hansen in the third quarter proved to be too much for the VVar- riors. Hansen scored 13 points and Alger 12 points to lead in the scoring column. DEC. 17 -- WITH!-:E AT THORP. By defeating Withee in this game. the Cards slipped into a 3-way tie for the division leadership with Stanley and Owen. The Cards took a 27-15 point lead in the first quarter and stretched it to a 47-24 score at halftime. The third quarter swelled the score to 68-40 and the game ended with an impressive 81-52 victory for the Cardinals. Our quint two ,, if' its 9 .W . - 'JI i. . , . 'ami A X - X -A . . .

Although Owen lead at the end of the first period by a 4 point margin, the Cards out-scored them in every other quarter to beat out a 72-55 victory. Hansen again led in total points with 23 points. JAN. 24 --THORP AT GREENXVOOD. Meeting the Greenwood quint for a second time this season, the Cards turned the tables on them to come out with a victorious 51-60 score. Although our Cards trailed by 2 points at the half, the well-placed shots of Gordie Hansen, Rex Schmidt, and Don Soderberg brought Thorp another victory. Hansen was high with 18 points. JAN. 28-NEILLSYILLE AT THORP. In this game the Cards defeated Neillsville for the second time in the season, by a 72-44 score. The Cards were out in front by one point at the close of the first quarter. The score was tied 28-all at the halftime. In the last two quarters, the Cards outscored the Neillsville quint by a large margin. Don Soderberg took scoring honors with 23. A - Q FEB. 4-THoRP AT WITHEE. The Cards upheld their winning streak to defeat Withee 70-86. Hansen, with 30 points, led our team to an easy victory. The game was not in much doubt, as Thorp led by a sub- stantial margin at the end of each quarter. FEB. 8-ALTOONA AT THoRP. Though the Cards led by 4 points, 16-12, at the close of the first 8 minutes of play, the Railroaders had gone ahead by a 31-33 score at the half-time. The second half was a hard-fought de- fensive battle, but Altoona proved to be too much for the Cards. The game ended with Thorp on the short end of a 63-80 score. The highlight of the game was Gordie Hansen who hit for 33 points. FEB. 10 - THORP AT STANLEY. Although the boys went into this game ready to fight their hardest, they found it quite difficult to overcome a stiff Stanley de- fense. The Cards led briefly in the opening moments, but the Orioles out-scored them in every quarter to de- feat our team 87-62. Don Soderberg scored 19 points. FEB. 15-WISCONSIN RAPIDS AT THORP. In this, the last scheduled game of the season, the Cards did not find it too difficult to defeat Assumption High School 87-60. Thorp took the lead early in the first quarter and stretched this lead to come out victorius. Hansen and Soderberg led Thorp with 24 and 29 points respectively. l Burl-c Rout Von-'li 'llctziii-r, Roger Podliolzi.

"B" TEAM The 1954-55 "B"-Squad, under the fine coaching of Mr. Gripentrog, ended the season with a highly impressive record. Many of the games were close, but it seems that the B-Team's last quarter rallies saved the day for them. Since many of the B-Team players have experience on the A-Squad and will soon be permanent members of that team, it seems safe to say that we will have a well-trained and experienced' squad to occupy the vacated positions on the A-Squad in the future. Congratulations to Coaches Tetzner and Gripentrog and the members of both squads on a job well done. fkppositc Page: Don Sodcrbcrg, Ricliic Alger, Gordie Hansen, John Maier, Rich jarficki, ,lim Winger, Rex Schmidt, jim Schauer, Bill Harycki, Dave Guell.

M., the Thorp Public School held the dedication of its new addition. Preceding the dedication, members of the Student Council conducted guided tours of the school for anyone interested. Following the tours, the high school band presented a short concert. At approximately 2:45 P.M., Reverend Francis Piekarski, of St. Hedwig's Catholic Church, recited the invocation. Mr. Corwin Guell, Director of the School Board, presented the members of the school board and the members of the building committee. Mr. Guell also introduced all other speakers in their turn. Directly following the Greetings extended by Mayor Nolchek, Mr. LeVee, architect of the new addition, presented the key of the school to Mr. Qualle, principal. Reverend Arnold Muckerheide, of St. Bernard's Catholic Church, presented the prayer of dedication. At this time, a mixed quartet, consisting of Nancy Lindquist, Diane Zaborowski, Don Soderberg, and Richard Alger, presented a musical selection. Mr. Francis Conway immediately int1'o- duced the guest speaker, the honorable W. P. Knowles, Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin. Following the Lieutenant Governor's address, Ruth Bogumill, President of the Student Council, extended thanks and appreciation, on behalf of the entire student body, to all who were concerned in any way in the construction of our new addition. A boys' quartet: Eugene Wilhelm, Don Soderberg, Jim Schauer, and Leon Kotecki, then presented a vocal selection, after which Mr. Wenninger, a member of the faculty, spoke in behalf of all faculty members. Reverend Robert Olson, of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, offered the benediction. Following the dedication program, more guided tours were conducted, and free refreshments were served in the new cafeteria. From the Student Body: We, the students of Thorp High School, feel it is a great honor and privilege to be attending such a fine high school as the one just recently dedicated. Although we cannot express the thanks we feel, we are well aware that it took a great expendi- ture of money, time, effort, and sacrifice to bring such a fine building into existence. It is a debt which we can never hope to repay. But what we can try - and TRY we will - will be to continue through our efforts, to uphold the traditions and accomplish- ments of the Thorp High School in ways which will, we hope, make you proud - proud of us, proud of Thorp, proud of our school. This much we pledge with all our hearts - "We'll do our very best!" Page Sixty-four ff QQ Ae! XJ I ,jr-df '- ADVERTISEMENTS "' x .SN . I N '-L ,-ri? 'X . 3 .
