.lv K ii ,rv- 4 it is 7 'N i ' ni Vice President, Thomas Curry, and Secretary and Treasurer, Shirley Benjamin. We at once made our debut in school activities. R. Davis, D. Hess, W. Rose, F. Erpenbach, T. Curry, R. Spangenburg, R. Pingle, D. Eckelberg, R. Gilbert, R. Aller, M. White, were out for tootball. D. Davis, T. Curry, R. Gilbert, W. Lind, R. Aller, were out for basket- ball. j. Meyers, D. Eckelberg, E. Gerke, R. Soderstrom, and j. Ris- chette in debate. The musical organizations were also well repre- sented by the sophomores. We enjoyed studying ancient history under Miss Schuelke and English II from Miss Reiser. These classes were really interesting! Meanwhile, we were looking forward to our junior year and planned on making a good showing. As juniors the class continued to hold up its good record. In football R. Spangenburg and T. Curry were on the first team. R. Davis and T. Curry were on the first five in basketball. R. Aller and T. Curry won Golden Gloves in boxing. The musicians of the junior class spent an enjoyable day in La Crosse at the Music Tournament. Many juniors went out for declamatory, reading, and speech contests. Awards were given to a number of these students. Under the leadership of the officers: Robert Gilbert, Thomas Curry, joan Barnharst, and Robert Aller, our class held the annual junior Prom on April 26, 1945, with the theme "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows." The Prom King, Robert Gilbert, chose Mary Ellen Reisen- auer to reign as Queen. We have tried to be good citizens and show our loyalty to our dear school by supporting things for wlfich she stands. Striving to do its best for the school, the class of '47 is looking forward to its last year in Tomah High School as a culmination of all its hope and ideals. We are the class of '47, We have chosen our officers: Thomas Curry, President, Richard Davis, Vice President, Gertrude Thom, Secretary and Treasurer, Donald Hess, Sergeant-at-Arms and con- ducted all our enterprises in a manner worthy of note. Through a committee of five, with the help of the faculty, we chose our Hamot Staff. The time we have passed in Tomah High School has been short, but we have learned many of its traditions and teachings. We have learned the need of sportsmanship in our everyday work, and we have learned to cultivate and apply these qualities in all our school activities. Again, as in other years, we have an excellent representation in school activities. Richard Davis and Thomas Curry are on the first five in basketball. In football, R. Davis, R. Pingle, W. Hoag, R. Aller, T. Curry, D. Hess, R. Spangenburg, played on the first team. In music organizations the Seniors again are outstanding. In the different speak- ing organizations we also did well. joan Barnharst was chosen to represent Tomah High School in the Daughters of the American Revolution, Good Citizenship Contest this year. What A Life, the senior class play, was presented on May 15, 1947. We didn't know our class had so many actresses and actors until we saw them in action. High scholastic honors were earned this year by Donald Eckel- berg and Olive Willgrubs, with averages of 97, and Ruth Uischner, with an average of 95.7855 Berniece Miller ranked third with an average of 93.785. We came to school the last day as Seniors on May 29, 1947, Commencement Day, and then it was all overg but even though we did weep a little, we smiled a great deal more at the thought of the wonderful years which had passed while we were in school, the silly things we had done, the big things we had accomplished. 5 S l t I i - Q Q fa
