N publishing this, the White and Gold Hamot, we
of the staff have endeavored not only to equal
the previous publications, but to better them. The
school year has been a notable one. We have
won high honors in all activitiesg we have led
the social life of other classes and have accom-
plished many memorable events during the last
year. We earnestly hope that this, the record of
our class, may reflect to you the good nature, loy-
alty, and willingness of the students of th-e Tomah High School.
If the contents of this book bring to the readers a better un-
derstanding of the school life and activities of the studentg if
this book makes clearer to them the history and undertakings
of this class, and if it combines the ideals and interests of our
school with other schools, then the purpose for which it was un-
dertaken shall have been successfully accomplished.

I believe that I should at all times endeavor to show my
loyalty and respect for Tomah High School wherever I may beg
That I should faithfully and conscientiously do my work
from day to dayg ,
That I should never shirk extra tasks, but cheerfully and
willingly give my best to my school at all timesg
That I should walk in the way of honor, guarding the purity
of my thoughts and deeds in ord-er not to lower the standards
of my school,
That I should believe that my given word is binding and that
I should be honorable, courteous, and generous toward allg
That I should attend and support all school enterprises and
activitiesg and where possible take an active part in themg
That I should cherish the traditions of my school, protect
her interests, and do all in my power to promote her welfare.

The faculty in Tomah High School
Is our bright and guiding star,
It wins above all faculties,
In near lands and in far.
Take Mr. Shaw, for instance,
A man who's bright and square,
But he'll be a few shades brighter
If you'll stop to consider his hair.
Now, then, just take Miss Murphy,
A staunch Irish lass,
She's always ready for a good time,
I But she makes you behave in class.
I Take little Miss McAdams,
Better teacher can't be f-ound,
But sometimes she resembles a chimney-
Gets red hot, then quickly cools down.
Miss McConnell, who knows Latin
From A to X Y Z,
But she'll get her fame by dancing,
So I think-you wait and see.
And Johnson, our athletic coach,
Just tits in any place,
He's more than a jolly good fellow,
Though he takes up a good deal of
Yes, and then there is Miss Gardner,
Who in school is very sedate,
But every-shall I tell it?
- Yes, each night she-has a date.
Now, here's some advice that's solely
For the benefit of Miss Clark
After you're married and get your Ford,
Don't ever forget where to park.
Miss Flaherty, who is always
As busy as a bee,
And everyb-ody likes her,
She is music from A to Z.
There are urgent pleas for mirrors
By the girls every day-is that strange?
But, if any of them are desperate-
Use Mr. Trentlage's head for a change.
I am sure 'twfould be very convenient,
For his bald spot's as round as can be
And shinier than a mirror
As nearly as I can see.
Now, there is Miss Bradfield, the singer,
Who performs for us m-ost every night.
We're standing outside "Markies"' window
Well hidden, and quite out of sight.
And then there's Miss Drowatzky,
lNho has helped to better our High,
She must have eyes in the back of her head,
To see some of the things that "get by."
Not many of us know Miss Beeckler,
But the teacher's course girls, great and small
Laud and praise her far above anyone else-
I'm sure that she's liked by us all.
And here's to the lady from Lawrence,
She's loyal as ever can be,
But I believe in her heart she loves Tomah
Almost as much as we.
Miss Rowan, we wish you happiness,
And we hope in the future, that we
May help and honor you and "Red."
With a noisy charivari.
Mr. Bush, we've kept you busy,
But we're loyal to you still,
And we'll think of you and T-olmah High,
When we've left the school on the hill.

To you, oh cherished Mother of us all,
We bid a lingering, lasting, fond farewellg
Our hearts, at parting, ever rise and fall
With sentiments for you, we cannot tell.
We realize at parting what strong ties
We've formed around the old school on the hill,
Within your walls each sight that met our eyes
VVe now record, its peace nought else could fill.
The smiling faces of our friends each day
That greeted us, and friendship's chain was forged
Upon your anvil, welded in your way
By standards high, and ever helpful words.
Now we are leaving, and 'tis with a sigh,
Remembering happy days we've left for ayeg
But we will ne'er forget dear Tomah High,
We'll try her glorious spirit to repay.

You can tell the Freshmen
Because they are so greeng
I fear the cows would eat them-
Were they in the pasture seen.
You can tell the Sophomores
They feel quite supremeg
Though they're not much above us
By their acts 'tis plainly seen.
You can tell the Juniors,
They hold their heads so high,
They think they'll make good Seniors,
Though we fear it is a lie.
You can tell the Seniors,
By their stately ways and such,
Yes, you can tell us Seniors,
But-you cannot tell us much.
CWith apologies to Kiplingj
If you can keep your books, when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can get high marks, when all your paper
Has disappeared, and pens and pencils, too,
If you can bluff, and not be called for bluffing,
Can stutter through a passage strange and new,
And being called on, make a recitation,
With accusing eyes directed straight at you,
If you can read the Red Book for a period
And giggle over jokes and cartoons rare,
If you can slip notes to the girls behind you
And can keep the Main Room teacher unaware,
If you can use the reference books unhindered
And leaving, slip a note between the pages,
If you can show a well worn Latin grammar
Which is not covered with the dust of ages,
If you can spend your time in writing letters,
And notes -o-n fancy paper blue and green,
If you can hum, or sing or raise a rumpus,
And still remain in Row 3, Seat 19,
If you can borrow knowledge from your seatmate,
And copy all the work you have to do,
You may not be set up as an example,
But what is more important, "You'll Get Through."

"Gee, Maw, the Carnival sure was great. It even beat the parade, and
that's going some, 'cause the parade sure was a peach. You would a-thought
there was a circus or somethin' in town. All folks a-standing in the street,
and pretty soon we heard a noise, and here comes a band a-playin' away an
then two girls dressed funny ridin' in a cutter, an' schoolhouse on a truck,
and basketball girls, I guess they was, a-yelling and a truck with signs all
around it and people typewritin' and stuff. Then comes a big man with a
whip and he cracked it at some poor old niggers, then a white truck with
a big eagle on it-'twasn't live tho', an' then some Indians and then a truck
what was a wireless or somethin' and then a swell clown band and a fella
with a horn and he said that you should come to- the carnvial, and gee, Maw,
I'm sure glad I went, 'cause 'twas sure great. First when you went in the
door, ya could buy candy and pink lemonade and lollypops and all kinds of
funny side shows where they cut some hair off a girl. And, mother, they
made things go through a table and in one corner they sold balloons and all
kinds of stuff. Then I goes down stairs to a submarine that was in the gym,
ya know, and good gosh, 'twas kinda scarry at first, but then it was swell.
Then I went clear back upstairs again to the main show 'cause there was so
many folks and I wanted a good seat an' pretty soon the lights went out and
the curtain went up an' the whole stage was full of niggers-real niggers,
too. An' they sang songs an' one big fat one had a gun. Then pretty quick
in comes an old nigger woman pushing a little nigger baby in a buggy. Then
they sang some more an' told jokes an' then the curtain went down. An' next
there was some kids dressed like some teachers an' they looked jest like 'em,
an' they jest told some jokes an' stuff an' there was gypsies what had a fire
an' sang, an' one of 'em danced and then a funny little Scotch boy comes and
he sang an' sounded jest like a record what we got. An' then some Japanese
girls come in an' sang an' danced an' had their eyes all squinted an' funny
little parasols. An-an' then some girls come in what had on paper dresses
an' there was a girl in a funny old time dress an' a boy what had on a white
wig an' then one comes in carrying a hat an' she walked a little an' they
all sang and then they put down the curtain an' a big tall fella comes out with
a little short girl an' they sang s'more songs an' told some jokes. Gee, they
was good. And then-they said they was going to crown a king an' queen.
And then some girls and boys all dressed in white come walkin' out an' they
had some hearts on sticks an' then there was a girl an' boy come in an' they
was the king and queen. They said they was Ann Steinmetz and Leonard
Madden. An' they had some crowns put on their heads an', an' then the
curtain went down, an' that was all. But gee, it was swell."

This year the orchestra was a great success. It furnished music on many
5 occasions throughout the year. The first public appearance of the orchestra fl
, was at a Parent-Teachers' meeting. Later the orchestra played for debates, 5
and at the Monroe County School Board Convention.
The year was closed successfully by playing at the class play and at the '
commencement programs. A notable improvement of the orchestra was the N
addition of the baritone, melophones, and bass.
The orchestra loses four of the class of '22 this year-Kenneth james, L
Milton Lenz, Alva Sweet, and Ruth Reinhold, the last three having played
VVith good material from the grade orchestra, we hope to have another
successful organization next year.

"Yea, music is the prophet? artg
Among the gifts that God hath sent
One of the most magnificent."
Music is becoming more and more important in Tomah High School. This
year the various musical organizations have progressed very rapidly and Won-
derful results were obtained.
VVe owe all this to our musical instructor, Miss Flaherty, and we wish to
thank her for her co-operation and untiring efforts.

Ninety-eight girls entered the tryout for the Glee Club. Of these Miss
Flaherty chose Hfty. They furnished music for various programs, among
which were the Monroe County Teachers' Convention, debates, and Parent-
Teachers' Association. They also played an important part in the Commence-
ment Exercises, furnishing beautiful numbers. The girls have attended re-
hearsals regularly, have worked hard and have obtained results. At the first
meeting of the Girls, Glee Club the officers were elected.

This popular organization was formed last year under Miss O'Leary who
was instructor of music at that time and was again organized by Miss Fla-
herty at the beginning of the 1921-1922 school year. Fifty boys tried out for
places on the Glee Club and twenty were chosen. The club took prominent
parts in many of the programs and entertainments held during the year,
among these being the Hamot Staff Play, Rural Club Meeting, Parent-Teach-
ers' Meeting, the demonstration given by the Physical Educational and Mu-
sic departments, the Carnival and Class Day exercises.
Girlz' Ennhlr Quartet
It has always been the custom in Tomah High School, to keep the mem-
bers of the former year in the Girls' Double Quartet, and add new ones in
place of those who have graduated. This is done because it is necessary to
make a very careful choice on account of the limited number. The following
is a list of the members:
First Soprano- Second Soprano-
Eva Thom Helen Steinmetz
Henriette Marshall Mildred Anderson
First Alto- Second Alto

The Girls' Double Quartet has appeared a number of times during the
year, assisting on various programs. The girls do good tone work and sing
with good expression. They have presented some very pleasing numbers.

The Teachers' Training Course was established in Tomah High School in
1913. Since then 135 have graduated from this school as teachers.
There are 16 Seniors and 16 Juniors in the department this year.
Last year, Miss Hutson and the junior and Senior girls in the Teachers'
Training Course organized the "Rural Life Club" for the purpose of making
the girls better acquainted with rural life and rural problems. This club has
been continued by the members in the course this year.

The Forum is an organization formed for the purpose of furthering inter-
est in debate and public speaking. From the very beginning this association
has been active. At the beginning of the first meeting the olihcers for the
year were elected.
On the Hrst and third Tuesdays of each month regular meetings were held.
At each meeting the society held a debate with variations of a mock trial, a
round table discussion, or a musical selection. The number enrolled in this
club is forty-two, comprised not only of boys, but also of girls.
On December third 'the dual debate with Baraboo took place. The Tomah
team won at Baraboo, but was beaten at Tomah. Un December 19th the try-
out was held, and the regular team was chosen to represent Tomah in the
Lawrence League Debates and has since won the League Triangular Debate
Championship with Sparta and Viroqua.
The organization of the Forum was of great benefit to the members in
that they learned the essential elements of debate and received valuable train-
ing and experience in the art of debate.

The Commercial Club is one of the few clubs having a full membership.
The thirty members making up the Commercial Club are all Seniors and
those taking Shorthand and Typewriting.
Last year at the Commercial Contest held at Tomah, representatives of
the high school won first place in Shorthand, and First and third places in
junior Typing. Having thus made one of the first three places the represen-
tatives Were eligible to participate in the State Contest at Vlfhitewater, but due
to lack of experience they were unable to do anything noteworthy there.
Perhaps one thing which no other class or commercial student can boast
of is the possession of a Go-ld Medal from a Typewriter Company. This
year Robert Drescher won a Gold Medal from the Remington Typewriter
Company for writing 64 words per minute for ten minutes with less than five
errors. In addition to this many members have card cases for 40 words per
minute, while some hold Bronze Medals for the same amount.
The ofhcers of the Club have endeavored to plan programs that will be
both educational and interesting. Members of the Club have learned to use
all of the latest commercial machines and have also a good understanding of
business training in addition to the regular commercial studies.

The Home Economics Club chose the following subjects to discuss at
various meetings of their club:
Home making should be regarded as a profession.
Home foundation is built on all that is good in state or individual.
To show that right living is the fourth "R" in education.
That the most profitable and interesting study for women is the home
and what is in it.
That spending money is as important as earning money.
That the home worker should be as alert to meet progress in her life as a
business man is in his life.
The club has had a very successful year, both socially and industrially,
due to the working and the co-operation of all the members.
During the week of the art exhibition an apron sale was put on by the club
members. About S35 was realized, which will be used for the benefit of the
Home Economics Department of the Tomah High School. Some useful
piece of equipment is being considered as a gift to the department.
The club met every second and fourth Friday of each month. Interesting
programs were given at these meetings which were generally concluded by

The Science Club is organized on the plan of a tribe. We have our coun-
cils, chiefs and medicine men. Our council Fires bring out many credible
topics and discussions along various branches of science. NVe have had talks
on various scientific industries and their leaders. Among them were Ford
and Edisong radiuni and the work of Madame Curieg magnetism and induc-
tiong radio operation, telephone and telegraph units. The underlying princi-
ples of each have been studied and talked over. VVe have demonstrated many
of these subjects with suitable experimental tests, especially in electricity and
the gas and steam engines.
The members show their interest from time to time in bringing to the at-
tention of the club facts and fancies in the realm of science, that they have
discovered in their outside reading.
Re-election came at the semester end and now George Blackwood is Chief,
O. V. Vandervort is sub chief, and V. Fredericks is secretary and treasurer,

The junior English Club consists of members of the Junior Class who are I
interested in reading good literature, in dramatic interpretation, and in gain-
ing a knowledge of contemporary drama. The aim of the programs was to I
develop the initiative of the members along dramatic and literary lines. The
main project for the year has been the study of the American one-act play.
with supplementary programs including a comparative study of contempor-
ary poets and novelists.

The History Club was organized to further interest in history. At each
meeting various topics were discussed. Among those discussed were the
japanese Question, Disarmament, and the Inland VVaterway Project. In
this way the members gain valuable information and become more interested
in current events. The Program Committee has succeeded in having each
member give a topic. The Refreshment Committee should receive credit for
their various spreads. A club of this sort helps in school work and should be
kept up in Tomah High School.

The purpose of the club was to teach its members the art of photography.
In order to carry on this work, the programs often consisted of topics of the
various methods and stages of photography, such as "Flashlight Picturesf or
"Time Exposures." Some meetings were also devoted entirely to the work
of printing exposures. But, nevertheless, it was not all work, and at some
of the meetings the greater part of the time was spent in entertainment and

The purpose of this society is to encourage the development of character,
to create enthusiasm for high scholarship, to promote leadership, and to stim-
ulate a desire to render distinctive service to the students of Tomah High
Membership in this society is based on character, scholarship, leadership,
and service within the school. The student must have spent at least one
year within Tomah High School and must have a scholarship rank in the
hrst fourth of his respective class. Not more than ten per cent of any senior
class may be elected after the beginning of the senior year. An additional
five per cent may be elected in the second semester of that year. The election
of members shall be by the High School faculty or by the principal, and a
committee of faculty members appointed by him.
The one big objective of this year has been the publication of the school
paper, the "Owl," which has served as an organ for voicing school interests,
in chronicling school activities, and in creating school spirit.
It is the wish of the charter members that from each Senior Class, mem-
bers who deserve the honor and credit will be admitted to this society, and
that it will be the aim of each student to make himself or herself eligible.

"History repeats itself 5" this is an adage as true as it is old. VVhen, in
1915, Tomah High came within one step of the championship, it was thought
impossible that such a thing would happen again. But our boys stepped out
again in 1919 and raised our laurels. And this year we can boast of a
team which has never before been equalled in the history of Tomah High
School. Although we did not get a chance at the state title, a glance at the
records will show that we certainly deserved it and will bear out the fact that
Tomah debaters can present a strong opposition to any team.
An unusual amount of interest was shown in debate activities this year.
Shortly after school started came a challenge from Baraboo High to a joint
debate. Tomah accepted the challenge and arrangements were made for two
debates on the question: "Resolved, That the eighteenth amendment should
be repealed." Because of lack of time it was decided to hold no tryout for
these debates, but to leave the work in the hands of the six old debaters and'
to select two seniors, who had had some previous experience, as alternates.
The debates were held on December 9th, Our affirmative team, com-
posed of Noth, Clark, and Fieting lost a hard fought contest to an experi-
nced team from Baraboo. This debate was held in the afternoon at Tomah.
But, to compensate us for this defeat, our negative team, composed of Lenz,
McCaul, Marquart, and Drescher falternatej, went to Baraboo and on the
same night administered to the affirmative team of that school a defeat which
they will never forget.
The Baraboo debaters left Tomah on a fifty-fifty basis, but in a confident
attitude for the league debates.
Lawrence College submitted the following question to be debated by all
schools in the League: "Resolved, That the reduction of national arma-
ments to a status of adequate police forces, within a period of ten years, is
The tryout resulted in the selection of these six debaters: Thomas
McCau1, Milton Lenz. XVill Fieting, Orin Noth, Francis Clark. and Le Roy
Jourdan, with Lester Gordon and Warren Sowle as alternates. These fellows
compose an octet hard to beat.
The negative headed by Thos. McCaul, the phenomenal find of the year,
followed by jourdan and Fieting, formed a formidable trio. They argued
that the world was not yet ready for disarmament, but that a limitation of
armaments was welcome. T-hey proposed a plan with these features: 1.
Reduction of armaments to a defensive basis. 2. Settlement of disputes be-
tween nations by mutual concessions. 3. Immediate discontinuance of all
armament construction for ten years. 4. Guarantees by most interested na-
tions of the political integrity of all nations liable to unprovoked assault.
The affirmative, three old debaters, composed another combination of wit,
brains, and oratorical ability that held the audience. The first speaker,
Clark, interpreted the question, explaining that any agreement, international
organization, or other arrangement which results in the elimination of all
means of international warfare satisfied their case, and that any similar ar-
rangement which results in the maintenance of arms satisfied the negative.

He also showed that preparedness for war means war. The second speaker,
Noth, took up the question from the economic standpoint, showing that a
peaceful nation is always a progressive one, and that wars are conducive to
unstable financial conditions in a country. The last speaker, Lenz, then out-
lined a workable plan for a union of nations patterned after our own United
Statesg this union of nations to adopt as their plan for elimination of inter-
national warfare the one suggested and demanded by the question. This
showed that the plan could be carried out in the time limit of ten years.
The first debates were held on February 17th. Our negative went to
Sparta while our affirmative stayed home to meet the pride of Viroqua. Both
of these debates were won and this double victory gave Tomah the right to
meet the winners of other districts.
On March 10th we met Stanley and Augusta in the second triangular con-
test. Our negative stayed here and scored a brilliant victory over the Au-
gusta affirmative. But at Stanley our affirmative met their Waterloo, while
Augusta beat Stanley at Augusta. This left a tie which was to be decided
by the ratings of each team. The original grades were as follows:
At Tomah At Augusta At Stanley
Tomah . . .. ......... 90 Augusta ........... 90 Stanley ........ . . . . .90
Augusta . . .. ........ 85 Stanley . .. .......... 84 Tomah .... .. . . . . . . . .86
IN THIS CASE TOMAH WOULD WIN
There is a clause in the Rules for Debate which states that the winning
team shall receive 100 per cent and that the losing team should be graded
accordingly. If this ruling were lived up to, the grades would be:
At Tomah At Augusta At Stanley
Tomah . .. .......... 100 Augusta .......... 100 Stanley .......... . .100
Augusta ........... 95 Stanley ........... 94 Tomah . . . . .... . . . . . 96
IN THIS CASE TOMAH WQULD WIN
The judges at To-mah and Augusta raised their grades. The judge at
Stanley was also requested to raise his grades to conform with the rule,
but this he refused to do, stating that if anything was wrong, it would be
rectified by the Governing Board of Debate at Lawrence College. This fail-
ure on his part to record the grades correctly cost Tomah the triangle. The
grades as submitted to Lawrence College were:
At Tomah At Augusta At Stanley
Tomah ............. 100 Augusta .......... 100 Stanley ............. 90
Augusta . . .. ........ 95 Stanley ........... 94 Tomah .... .. . . . . . . . .86
LAWRENCE COLLEGE AWARDED THE TRIANGLE TO
McCaul, Clark, Gordon, and Sowle are all underclassmen, and with them
to uphold the laurels of Tomah High, prospects are bright for a successful de-
bating season next year.
Declamatory received a rather late start this year. As was the case last
year, there were so many aspirants for the honors that it was found necessary
to hold two tryoutsg the speakers to be chosen on the elimination plan. At
the first tryout ten were selected to compete in the finals on April 3. Follow-
ing is a list of these ten contestants and their selections:
1. The One Hundred and Oneth ................... Nellie Sullivan
2. Dolores Defies the King .... ...... -I essie Taylor
3. The' Theatre Party ...... .... F lorence Sutton
4. The Coward ....... .... M ildred Anderson
5. The Death Disk ...... ..... G enevieve Gabower
6. The Littlest Rebel ..... ...... R achel Kelley
7. Madame Butterfly .... ...Isabelle Martin
S. Bobby Shaftoe ..... ..... A nn Steinmetz
9. The Swan Song .... ....... M ae Bailey
10. Cherokee Roses ............................... Viola Fredericks
Nearly all of these speakers have had some previous experience in this
field, some of them having represented Tomah High before, and prospects
are very bright. On April 3 at the local contest, Genevieve Gabower won
third placeg Mildred Anderson, second, and Rachel Kelley first. At the dis-
trict contest held at La Crosse on April 21, Mildred Anderson won first place
and Rachel Kelley third. These girls will represent Tomah High at the
league contest at La Crosse May 5.
The oratorical tryout was held on April 18th. Third place was won by
Miltos Lenz, second by Roland Kelpe, and first by Tom McCaul. Honorable
mention was given to Will Fieting, John Fieting, and Norman Lueck. The
winners of first and second places represented Tomah High at Viroqua on
April 21 at the district contest. Roland Kelpe won second place and will
represent us at the league contest.

CAPTAIN LEONARD C'TuEer"j MADDEN, Fullback and Tackle-Into every
play. A hard, consistent player whose offensive and defensive ability makes
one of the mainstays of the team. "Tuffer" is a four-letter man and his loss
will be felt greatly next year.
ORIN CHK. Ofij NOTH, End-Another Senior whose playing won, for him
a steady berth at end. He performed creditably, overcoming a serious handi-
cap due to injuries received in the La Crosse game. HK. O." played two
years at end.
LYLE C"Tommy"j THOMPSON, End-Another Englishman who had the
heels of the "Flying Dutchman." TOmmy's foot-work was exceptional,
especially when opposition is considered. He is the second regular end.
ROBERT C"Bob"j O,LEARY, Quarterback, CCaptain-electj-Little but
mighty in all that goes to make a football team come to time. Whenever
some one was needed to put punch in a team Bob could always be relied upon.
To further prove his worth as a leader his team-mates chose him to be their
captain next year.
RAYMOND f"Buster"Q SOWLE, Quarterback and Halfback-With perfect
interference our hero of the Baraboo game ran sixty yards for a touchdown,
surprising himself and his teammates in his last year of High School football.
CHARLES C"Chuck"J COMPTON, Halfback-"Chuck" was the hoodoo. of
the enemy. VVith him in the fray, Tomah always counted a touchdown. He
played a fast, consistent game whenever called upon.
VICTOR C"Tubbs"j OLESON, Tackle and Fullback-A regular steam roller,
flattening opposition with ease. A rare combination of speed and weight
combined with a playing intuition which labels him as a real artist.
WILLIAM C"Bill"J OLSON, Tackle and Guard-The doughty Dane whose
unconquerable smile helped him to overcome his enemy with ease. "Bill's"
greatest delight was rolling on the ball in the snow. He will be back to
don the moleskins next year.
RAYMOND C"Ray"j SMITH, Tackle-"Ray" went into the LaCrosse game
and "recovered" He is fast when in the game and his "golden toe" usually
accounted for Tomah's drop-kicking scores. This is his last year and he
played to the limit. He never missed a goal kick.
FREDERICK C"Fritz"J WALTMAN, Halfbaek-A whirlwind in speed and
endurance. It was always said that "Fritz" never would get hurtg but old
man jinx camped on his trail this year and put a hole in New Lisbon's field
for "Fritz" to step in, thereby keeping him out the remainder of the season.
His loss will be greatly felt next year. "Fitz" graduates with the class
FRANK C"Shanks"J FUCHS, End--The only Freshman to win the coveted
"T," He replaced either end as the occasion required. His favorite play
was the right shift, and he worked it well.
LAUREL f"Diek"D DICKINSON, Halfback-Our season's find and the fastes
man in the backfield. "Dick" and "Fritz" made the fastest set of halfbacks
His loss will be greatly felt next year. "Fritz" graduates with the class
ROBERT f"Slather"j KERN, Guard--Here is the one man on the team who
could always be depended on to make room for a short gain. "Slather" tipped
the scales at 200 pounds and he used his weight to good advantage. We'1l
remember his work in the Sparta games this year and at Chippewa Falls
KENNETH f"Brick"D BORROUGHS, Guard--A red-headed Irishman, talking
Huently with 160 pounds of fighting instinct. A junior and a whirlwind guard
who has another year to heap glory upon T. H. S.
GEORGE Q"Shorty"l HERMAN, End-Another regular end. "Shorty" played
in all except the last Sparta game. Injuries received last year necessitated
his retiring before the season closed. His work is of the highly meritable
type and he will be back to hold down his regular place next year.

N September 19th Captain Madden gave the first call to all
,f,.,1i-.. . football men. School had not reopened, but all the material
Q ff available was handed out and practice started. Fifteen men
I reported for practice regularly the first week with Charles
nfl -,Rf Wright assisting Captain Madden as coach. Vere Murray
ll gfilimn 1 one of last year's regular ends, had the misfortune to break his
li 4 111.1 shoulder during one of the scrimmages which prevented him
1 3 from playing the rest of the season. Our new coach arrived on
lf' Saturday and on Monday the opening of school practice began
in earnest. Ten old men from last year's squad reported for
practice. Coach Johnson had only two weeks to round the squad in shape
for one of the biggest games of the season with LaCrosse on October Sth.
He worked wo-nders with the squad. He perfected three formations off
which any play could be called and he is to be congratulated on the results
shown by this year's team with only such a short time to work. Out of
five games played, Tomah won four and lost one, scoring 106 points against
our opponents' 57. Two of the victories were over Sparta, a feat which has
never been accomplished by a Tomah High School Team. As a whole the
season of 1921 has been a great successg not only in a financial way, and in
the number of games won by the team, but also in the support of the students
back of the team. VVith the class of twenty-two five regulars will graduate,
Madden, Waltman, Sowle, Noth, and Smith. With ten old men back the
1922 team will certainly be contenders for the State Championship.
On Saturday October Sth, Coach johnson, and Manager Shaw, with a
squad of 18 men left for LaCrosse to start Tomah Football Season. Fumbles
are sure to occur in the first game with any team and this proved to be true
for Tomah. The ball was advanced 5 yards on the kickoff and in ten minutes
more LaCrosse pushed the ball over. Injuries caused many substitutes for
the Tomah team, but this only seemed to put more fight in the team and we
finally crossed to LaCrosse goal twice. Madden proved to be the mainstay
to the end. The final score was 42-12.
After another hard 'week of practice the team met Baraboo. -Tomah
kicked to Baraboo but lost the ball on downsg Tomah took the ball on the
fifty-yard line and marched straight down the field. VValtman and Madden
gained at will through the line or on tackle smashes. Tomah took the ball
to the one yard line only to lose it. The ball see-sawed back and forth with
neither team being able to score. Although Tomah was able to gain at will
she lacked the final punch to put the oval across. The second half opened
with Tomah receiving the ball and, after an exchange of punts with Mad-
den gaining five yards on every kick, Sowle received one of the punts in the
middle of the field and ran for a touchdown, aided by perfect interference or
the entire team. The ball changed hands several times, but neither team
were able to score. The game finally ended 7-l in favor of Tomah.
The next game was with New Lisbon. The whole team went down in cars
and a few rooters went along with the team. Tomah kicked to New Lisbon
and after a few downs were compelled to punt. The uneven ground made
fast running impossible although Dickenson and Waltman uncorked some

ended with Tomah in possession of the ball on their own forty-yard line.
Tomah tried to schedule another game but failed in the attempt, but the
squad was out on the field or else in the gymnasium when the weather was
not favorable. Tomah was supposed to play Winona on Thanksgiving, but
Winona couldn't do so on account of the unfavorable weather.
Although it was a very short season, Tomah had one of the best teams it
can expect to have. We lost at LaCrosse only because of lack of time to
round the team into shape. With our old lettermen back, Tomah should
have another successful year ahead of her.
THE PEPPY THREE
CAPTAIN ORIN UK. O."j CNOTIID. Running Guard-Noth's speedy drib-
bling, dazzling Hoorwork, and ability to whirl away from any opponent
made HK. O." an ideal floor guard. He was down the Hoor like a bullet,
following up long shots, and then whirling back to guard.
'A JOHN Culkynj FIETING, Forward, Center-The find ot' the year in basket-
ball. Although a new man, he proved to be the leading pointgetter.
ROBERT C'B:ob"j O'LEiiRY, Forward-"BOb's,' sensational dribbling in
all the games was a feature. He was a dangerous man under the basket, and
could always be relied upon when we were in need of a point.
LEONARD C'TUFFER'lj NIADDEN, Center-J'Tuffer," although not a spec-
tacular player, was a very dependable floor-man, and was dead on follow-up
RAYMOND fHRay"D SMITH, Guard-"Ray" held the scores of TOmah's
rivals to a minimum. Smith's accurate passing and cool guarding made him
one of the best defensive players on the team.
GEORGE C4'Shorty"j HERM.eXN, Forward-'lShorty" at forward, had a keen
eye for the basket. He was especially adept at dropping in long throws
from apparently impossible angles. He was a dependable player.
GEORGE QHBlaekyl'j BLAOKWOOD, Forward-HBlaeky," although the light-
est man on the team, showed he had fight by making the squad. He had a
good eye for the basket. VVhen he ran up against large opponents, he usually
managed to score to the amusement of the crowd.
VICTOR C4'Ole"D OLESON, Guard-t'OleH was the team 's heavyweight. He
is an A-No. l defensive man and a rugged, aggressive player.

of the season was a sensation, but due to injuries received later. was out of
the game the remainder of the season.

HIS vear Tomah had an exceptionally good basketball team.
'sf-4 'fr' ' The team made good use of the new gymnasium and the show-
, ers. After getting away with a poor start Tomah came back
. T and won six straight games. VVith four old men back, Tomah
J '- was sure to make a name for herself. She went through one
PSX A of the hardest schedules known, playing practically two games
',:"g'H' on every week end. The first game was with Friendship, a
new town on Tomah's list. The game was somewhat slow,
xi. due to the stage fright of some of the men and the smallness
of the hall. But Tomah lived up to her name and the score
at the end of the first half was 5-4 in favor of Friendship. The second half
was 10-10. A five-minute overtimeperiod was played and Tomah lost 14-10.
The following week Tomah played New Lisbon at home. Due to the in-
eligibility of nearly all of the first team, we went down to defeat 22-37. This
is the first time in history that New Lisbon defeated Tomah on her own fioor.
Prairie du Chien, another new Tomah rival, came here confident of win-
ning. and due to the game at the tournament, Tomah had stiff opposition.
The game proved to be the fastest seen on Tomah's floor so far this season.
The final score was 16-13 in favor of Prairie.
The next game was the La Crosse game at La Crosse. Tomah went there
with the anticipation of winning, but the big floor and the circling balconies
somewhat bewildered her men. After a few rallies which were stopped by
La Crosse, Tomah went down to defeat 30-10. A
Tomah returned home the next night and defeated Mauston 7-36. This
was Tomal1's first victory and she well deserved it. Mauston was simply lost
with Tomah's first victory and with Tomah's strong five-man defense and
her wonderful offensive. This was the beginning of Tomah's Saturday night
After another hard week of practice Tomah went to Granton. This game
was an exhibition of fast basketball. The first half ended 9-9. Tomah came
back and scored a basket. It seemed as though Tomah would rush her op-
ponents off their feet, but their rally was soon stopped short. The second
half ended 16-16. A five-minute overtime period was played. A foul was
called on Tomah which Granton made. There was no further scoring and
Granton won 17-16.
The follownig night Tomah went to New Lisbon, ready to make up for
the defeat handed to her on her own floor. Tomah made up for lost time.
The game see-sawed back and forth, and no team was sure to win until the
final whistle blew. The game was fast from start to finish and many substi-
Page Seventy fi
tutions were made on both sides. Tomah finally emerged the victor by a
score of 18-16.
On Jan. 27th the Tomah five left on another two-game trip to Prairie du
Chien and Winona. The game at Prairie was fast and exciting, although
Prairie romped away with Tomah the first half. The score was 13-4. The
second half Tomah came back and started playing basketball, rushing their
opponents off their feet and scoring at will. Their rally fell one point short,
The next night Tomah played Cotter High of Winona. The game was
slow and loosely contested, but Tomah lived up to her Saturday night luck
and won 17-26.
A week later Friendship came to Tomah with the idea of an easy victory,
but they changed their minds before they went home. The game was a walk-
away for Tomah. The second team was used during the last half, but Friend-
ship couldn't stop Tomah from scoring. The game ended 44-19.
The next night Tomah played La Crosse. This game proved to be the
fastest exhibition of basketball yet played in Tomah's gym. The score see-
sawed back and forth and at the half-mark La Crosse led 13-12. Tomah
started scoring immediately after the whistle blew for the second half, but
La Crosse always managed to come back with a few baskets. The game was
so exciting that everybody lost count and it wasn't till the referee announced
the score that anyone knew that Tomah had won 25-22. The old Saturday
night was too much for La Crosse.
February 11, Winona came to Tomah handicapped with the sickness of
one of her regulars. The game proved to be a pure walk-away for Tomah,
and when the final whistle blew the score was 46-6. The close guarding of
Tomah allowed Winona only one basket.
February 9, Tomah went to Mauston. On account of the smallness of
the hall and without the proper light Tomah could not hit her stride. The
game was slow and rough, ending 16-11 in favor of Mauston.
Granton came to Tomah confident of a victory. The first half was a walk-
away for Tomah, the team scoring at will. The second half Granton came
back strong and the game was more exciting. It seemed certain that Gran-
ton would win, but Tomah emerged the victor by a score of 39-31. Tomah
Went to Baraboo March 3rd, The game was fast and exciting, but Tomah
was handicapped due to the smallness of the hall. The first half ended 9-6
in favor of Baraboo. Tomah immediately scored a basket after the whistle
blew for the second half and it looked as though Tomah would win. But the
team seemed to lose its shooting eye all of a sudden. The game ended 16-11
in Baraboo's favor. Coach johnson immediately started preparing for the
tournament. He gave the team new plays and drilled them night and dayg
but due to the ineligibility of five of the first squad Tomah was unable to
participate in the contest. This year Tomah loses three men, Captain Noth,
Madden and Smith, by graduation. Six men are left to build a new team
next year which ought to be a winning combination.
This is the first year that Tomah has had a girls' basketball team. Al-
though the girls played only four games this year, they had an exceptionally
good team, defeating Mauston on their home floor. This was the first game
that Mauston lost in two years, and they are now claiming the state title.
Much credit is due to the coaching of Miss Rowan. The girls worked under
many disadvantages, having to practice before school and in the evening.
Next year Tomah ought to have a championship team.
ln Captain Edna Pingle and Gertrude Graham, Tomah had a combination
of fast forwards, that no guards in the state could break up. Nettie Strandt
got the jump on all her opponents, and she was a great aid in working the
ball to the basket. Hattie Walslager was a very fast moving center and she
was a lighter from start to Finish. In Mae Moore and lreane Walslager,
Tomah had two guards that could not be scored upon. They got the ball
away from under the basket without the least hesitation.
Since Tomah loses only two girls she ought to have a wininng team next

THE STORY OF THE THUNDER AND LIGHTNING
VVithin, the reflection from the fireplace flickered fitfully in fantastic shad-
ows upon the opposite wall in the living room of this old colonial home. It
cast its ruddy glow upon the locks of the Boy who sat, cross-legged and 'with
head bent, playing with his mechanical toys. He was very quiet and ab-
sorbed in the mechanism of placing a wheel upon an automobile of his own
construction. He breathed heavily, unconscious of all else. There was only
one other noise to disturb the quiet of the room. Beside him, in a big wicker
rocking chair, sat the Boy's grandmother. She had a kindly face, rendered
even more attractive by the white hair that waved up from a brow which was
almost free from wrinkles. Her thoughts were pleasant, for her lips were
curved in a half smile. She was knitting on something soft and red, and as
she knitted, the clicking of the needles was audible.
Without, the storm continued in all the fury with which it had begun.
The rain came down with such force that the flowers were all bent to the
ground and the water formed miniature pools in the road. A Hash of light-
ning crossed the sky and was gone. A clap of thunder broke the monotony
of falling rain, and the house shook from the shock. Even the Boy looked
"It's raining awful hard, grandma."
"Yes, mon petit, it is," she said in her pleasing voice.
Carefully the Boy placed his automobile upon the hearthrug and went
over to the window. He drew the curtain aside and looked out. The light-
ning blinded him for a moment, and was followed by a crash of thunder. Half
afraid, he drew his hand across his eyes and went back to the fire. He picked
up his toys and took a position nearer his grandmother, prompted, perhaps, by
a fear of the thunder. He did not immediately continue his work on the
automobile, but looked up at his grandmother and said, "Grandma, what made
She paused in her knitting. "Are you afraid of it, mon petit ?"
"The noise, it bothers me," the Boy said. "But how did it start, grand-
This time the knitting fell into her lap, and her hands rested one upon
the other over the soft, red material.
"Once, a long time ago," she said, "before there were houses like we have
now, and when the 'people lived in huts which they had built, or in caves
which they had chiseled from rock or found unoccupied by wild beasts, Satan
was dissatisfied with the world in general. He disliked the beautiful earth,
and he hated above all else, to see the people worship, in their simple, un-
doubting fashion, the Creator. So Satan thought and thought. At last he
hit upon an idea. He called all his helpers, and to them he disclosed his plan,
and bade them go and do his will.
Quickly they departed to the heavenly regions where the blue skies and
the white clouds Were. They rode upon the clouds, and the clouds became
dark. Of such great strength were the helpers of Satan that when they rolled
the clouds across the sky, and one cloud struck against the other, a great
Page E1ghty three
creaking and crashing, like the clashing of cymbals, filled the whole heavens,
and the echo sounded down upon the earth, and the echo was not less ter-
rible than the crashing above. The people came out from their caves and
huts, and their faces were white with fear. 'Surely,' they said 'we have
done some awful thing to have deserved this.' And they went off to the
altars and offered sacrifices to appease the wrath of the God they had wronged
by sin. But the thunder did not cease, and the people became more afraid.
The' crashing of the clouds caused a rain which continued for many days and
nights, and the people began to lose faith in their Creator and ceased to offer
' "W'hen God saw this, he became angry, and he called Satan to him and
said, 'VVhat hast thou done ?'
"Satan trembled at the sound of the voice for he knew that the God who
had banished him was more powerful than he. But he made no answer.
Then the Creator spoke again. 'Because, Satan, thou hast sought to take
away the faith of my people by Fear, I will send down the lightning to the
earth, and the lightning will kill. Every man has a span of life which he
must live, and the lightning will take none who have not lived their span.
Satan, thou hast done nothing to thine own good. Thy thunder, which thou
has wrought from power given thee by me, shall be a herald for the coming
of the lightningf And Satan departed.
"Then God sent the lightning. Each time the thunder echoed down to the
earth, a flash of light cleaved the heavens, and a bolt of fire buried itself in
the ground or sent a huge tree to destruction. Then the people remembered
the thunder and that it had harmed no one. And they knew that the light-
ning had been sent because they had doubted the Lord. And they were glad
in their renewed faith and went out to the altars and again offered sacrifices.
"VVhen Satan saw that the peopl.e had renewed their faith, a great envy
filled his heart. There was longing, too, but the pride that had doomed him,
kept him a prisoner. He called back his messengers and the heavens became
calm. The lightning ceased, and the rain stopped falling. The sun came out
and shone upon the earth and made it beautiful again. The flowers smiled
and the trees were even more beautiful than before. Then the people came
forth from their huts and looked at the earth around them and said, 'Surely,
God is good'."
lfVhen his grandmother had finished the story, the Boy was leaning against
her, and his head was resting upon her knee. Her hand had shifted from
the soft, red material to the Boy's hair. She thought he had fallen asleep,
but with the last word of the story, he sat up.
"Grandma, why do we always have the thunder, then P"
She smiled. "That isn't in the story, mon petit. I do not know."
By that time the storm without had stopped, and the sun broke out, light-
ing up the room, and its bright rays rivalled the light of the fireplace. The
Boy forgot about the thunder and Satan and the people, and, ridding himself
of his shoes and stockings, he went out to play in the miniature pools of

MY FUNERAL AS I PLANNED IT ONE DAY WHEN I
I certainly thought that I was the most abused girl in the world on that
delightful day in june. At that time I was just a little pug-nosed, red-
headed, freckle-faced kid of eleven and nobody knew how great my desire
was to go fishing. Most girls don't like to go fishing because they are afraid
of snakes, toads, and grasshoppers, but I'm not, and maybe that's why I like
fishing as well as any boy ever did. Furthermore, nobody seemed to respect
my desire in the least. Father strictly forbade me to go near the water and
mother seconded the motion. She told me to get the carpet beater and get
at the rugs, which were hung in a brilliant array on the clothesline.
I pleaded with her, beseeching her to allow me to go just that once, try-
ing to persuade her by telling her how many fish I was conlident I would
bring back. But as my powers of persuasion were of no avail my only choice
was to obey. Thereupon I got the carpet beater, and by giving vent to my
feelings, began to beat the rugs unmercifully, because I felt as though I
would do something desperate if I did not let off a little of the surplus steam
and energy in some way. For awhile I felt as though a good cry would
make me feel better, but I soon convinced myself that a girl as old as I was,
would never be guilty of such a thing. I kept on getting more pouty all
the time, convincing myself that I was badly and shamefully abused. I be-
gan to think to myself how sorry everyone would feef if I should suddenly
and mysteriously die. Of course, the more mysterious were the circumstances
concerning my health, the more excitement there would be in our little village.
At that time to my childish fancy ptomaine poisoning sounded like a very
romantic kind .of death, at least it would have looked good in the paper, al-
though I knew not what ptomaine poisoning was. Then I began to imagine
if I should die suddenly what manner of a funeral I would have. I knew that
if I died, everyone would feel pretty bad about it, and the thought made me
feel very happy. I could just fancy all my friends, neighbors and relations
standing about my coffin, gazing upon the angelic countenance of one who
had left her earthly home, and sobbing and sniffling and feeling sorry for all
the mean things they had ever done to me. I fancied I could hear the way
Mrs. johnson, the village gossip, would have said in her wheezy voice, "Yes,
Rachel was certainly a fine girl, and we all liked her 3- my, how natural she
looks." This would be followed by an outburst of violent sobs.
I also imagined I would have one of those white coffins with, "Our Dar-
ling" on it, like Willie Jones' little sister Betty Jane, had when she died. I
planned, too, that it would be an occasion when I would be all dressed up,
my face and hands immaculately clean. I supposed I'd have to have my ears
scrubbed, too, like I always did when I went any place. I thought I would
have a calla lily in my chubby hands Cthat flower being the one which I
always thought was particularly suited to my style of beautyj. I understood
that these were a few of the necessary evils connected with a funeral, but
they were only minor ones compared to the keen delight I would feel as I
. Page Eighty five
thought of the bereaved ones' remorse, while I would be enjoying myself in
heaven by playing hide and seek among the large clouds, teasing the fat
cherubs or monkeying with the angels' crowns and harps.
These were a few of the things I imagined while I vigorously thrashed
the carpet. Presently my mother came out, her face lit up by a smile on
account of her pleasure on seeing me so unusually diligent and said, "Rachel,
your father has brought home some ice cream and I've saved a dish for you.
After dinner you may go fishing if you like, as long as you've tended to your
business so well this morning."
At that I forgot all about such things as funerals and when I saw the
dish of delicious chocolate ice cream which was waiting to be devoured by
me, I was again glad to be numbered among the living.
DEFINITION OF A CHUMP
fAs seen by The Hamot Staifj
If someone says that we didn't work,
And tried in all ways our duties to shirk,
He's a chump!
If someone says that we didn't toil,
And nightly burn the midnight oil,
He's a chump!
If someone says that it was all fun,
To work every night, till the clock it struck one,
He's a chump!
If someone says the Hamot's all junk,
And says he won't buy one, because it's so punk,
I-Ie's a chump!

A very delightful and successful Prom was given by the Class of '23 in
the High School Gymnasium, April 28th. -
The decorations were unique as well as pleasing, with the colors of the
Senior Class, silver gray and rose, predominating. A piquant touch of color
was added to the lattice work, arches, and bowers by the use of yellow roses,
the Senior Class Hower.
At the head of the receiving line were Mr. and Mrs. VV. E. Bush, who
were assisted by the class officers. The grand march was led by Henriette

AN IMPORTANT SUBJECT
The most important subject in the world is
It can safely be said that millions of people are thinking about HIT."
A great many people go abroad for "IT,"
A great many people are doing HIT." Nobody knows how many, but too
In some society circles "IT" is the sole topic of conversation.
It seems the women are getting ready to wear HIT." Or a good imitation
of HIT." I
Nine-tenths of the magazine stories are written about HIT."
A great many movie films deal with HIT."
Three hundred songs are written about "IT" every week.

They say that nine men out of every ten underesti-
mate their power and ability to accomplish. The tenth
One man out of ten saves money. One man out often succeeds.
Could the lesson be plainer? Do you want to succeed? Of course
you do. So do the other nine. But one out ofthe ten decides that he
will Work and save, and that one Wins. You 'can do the same. Our
Bank is ready to open an account with you and to offer you every
encouragement. It is not an easy matter to save money, but it is
the price that success demands.

In the policy which governs our relations with our customers, there are three
which we believe are vital:
Price: The honest pricing of merchandise, to allow a fair profit, and no more. I
Quality: Dependable goods, backed by the responsibility of a national manufacturer.
Service: A sincere attention to the individual, which subordinates selling to service.
D In putting these principles above all others, we must depend for success on your apprecia-
tion of fair dealing. Will you not give us an opportunity to vindicate our policy?
