SENIOR CLASS '42
Once more we fill in a page in the ever increasing
volume of Tomahawk High School's History Book.
The graduating class of '42 started in '38, a group
of eager students from the Department, Parochial,
and rural schools of surrounding vicinities, filled
with hope and expectation. They had heard many
tales of that long sought for place, High School.
Many of them with ideas of all play and no work,
had soon come to the conclusion that they had to
work as well as play and many turned out to be
some of the best that have ever been turned out of
This class, after graduation day, will be alumni.
They were active and prominent participants in all
sports and extra-curricular subjects.
Nineteen hundred and forty-two finds the world
in somewhat of a turmoil. To a pessimist the world
looks very black and ominous, but we are proud
to say like all American Youth: there are no pessim-
ists in this body and being armed with courage,
hope, belief in themselves, and a fighting heart,
they will make any father's chest swell with pride
as they go forth to take on responsibilities that are
being placed in their hands.
The first Senior Formal ever to be held in this
school was held this year. The dance was a story
Top to bottom-E. Behling, A. Daigle, R. Koth, K. Smith.
Three of the girls-S. Stoke, V. Ball, L. Whipple.
Officers-B. Kluball, Mayer, G. Owen.
Class brains-A. laesehke, D. Redmond.
book fancy, the gym was decorated like never be-
fore. The trimmings were orange and black in a
scalloped design. The fairy-like couples swayed to
the music of that master Cliff Hoene and his orches-
tra. The spectators were mystihed at first. Some
thought they were at a Hollywood style show or
banquet because of the colorful review.
The' officers of this noble class were G. Owen,
president, R. Kluball, vice president, and M.
Mayers, secretary and treasurer. The class advisors
were K. M. Cherry and L. Brady.

,. JUNIOR CLASS 2.
Itthappened about the second of September in the
f ar 1941. Three bells called an assembly at the
omahawk High School at which about seventy
juniors rather cheerfully enrolled. Please get that
"cheerfully". Of course, that was the first day.
Classes got under way the second day.
Deciding to follow the pattern cut out by the last
year's juniors, we held our first class meeting No-
vember l3th to choose candidates for our presi-
dency. The person elected would automatically he-
come our prom king. The number of persons to be
nominated was set at five. The following day the
real McCoy took place. We voted by secret ballot
and it was not until that evening that votes were
Our junior class engaged Orl Polege's Orchestra
for our annual dance at which we announced Jim
Ellis, our president. A very small but lively and
anxious crowd turned out for the "big night".
After vacation another class meeting was held.
Robert Riedel was elected vice-president and June
Higgins, secretary and treasurer.,
Miss Larson, Miss Floyd, Mr. Joas and lvlr.
Rasmus were our class advisors who helped enthusi-

Twenty years hence visit your school,
Stranger than fiction is the general rule.
Brick and mortar and structural glass,
Esculators whisk you to your class.
Teachers are gone, and you'll miss his faceg
Discs and dials have taken his place.
A voice teaches and dismisses the class
VVith a tone as cold and as hard as brass.
Headlight news is, llleet the gym,
Neon lights flare, then fade dim.
Everyone's dancing, each heart is gayg
Kitchee-hoo-de-doodle is the modern way.
Once the kids were jitterbugs
And spent leisure time in cutting rugs,
And boys asked girls in a bashful way,
But now it's leap-year every day.
After the dance they're still fresh and spry,
They hop into scooter planes, away they all fly.
The stratosphere is the choicest ride,
But the Pacific isn't so very wide.

Zoom up, nose down, and give her the gun.
How you yearn for legs that walk,
For eyes that twinkle, and lips that talk.

Weened on icicles, sleep in frigidaires.

A FRESHM AN LAD
On a clear September morn, ij , "
A Freshman lad, O'Toole, A
Left his cheerful home,
And started out for school. .
His first day was a busy one,
He selected all his studies,
He met most of the teachers, X . Y.
And hailed his Freshman buddies. ' , '
The days crawled slowly but surely on,
The first dance rolled around,
Jim took a bashful blue eyed girl,
To whom his heart was bound.
He joined the school Debate Club,
And argued half the night.
"He ought to make a lawyer",
Said Mr. fLatinl Heidt.
He made the friendship of president Norm,
The days skipped merrily by,
He passed the tests in all subjects,
He passed without half a try.
So, raise your cheers you Freshmen all,
And praise this Jim O'Toole,
Yes, take your hats 05 to
A Freshman that's nobody's fool.

Still a little inexperienced, Coach Derscheid pick-

High school boxing was still in the experimental
stage in most schools. In order to keep it a clean
sport W. I. A. A. rules were enforced. As an ex-
periment, no decisions were given in the last fight
with Wausau on April 18, at Tomahawk. This
was done to promote better feeling between the box-
ers themselves as well as better exhibitions and
cleaner fighting rather than wild swinging, do-or-
die slugfest. Wausau had a very fine group of boys
who fought hard and clean. Tomahawk, having
more experience than at the beginning of the year,
showed real spunk and ability in close and hard

When Coach Vincent Derscheid-blew the whistle
for the first practice session, thirty-five willing boys
answered the call. The inexperienced squad train-
ed vigorously for four weeks before they played
their first game. There were many new positions to
be Hlled. The squad from the year before had lost
heavily' by graduation. To make matters worse,
the Bauer twins, who each played end, gave up foot-
ball in preference to baseball. Also our substitute
end, Gareld Ellis, abandoned school for a tour of
the United States and Canada. Then the day be-
fore practice began, Mark O'Malley who played
right half the year before and was elected co-cap-
tain, moved from the city. So with a light inex-
perienced squad, Tomahawk faced its opponents
who were usually big and rugged. Other bad
breaks, such as injuries and wet weather kept the
team from being in top form. Bob Kluball, George
Bartelt and Ray Cychosz were all injured in the
beginning of the season. Despite the injuries Tom-
ahawk came through with a fairly good season of
two wins against three losses. The last game,
scheduled for November first, was called off because
of snow. Six inches of snow had covered the Eagle
River field making it impossible to see the white
lines on the field. Graduation claims the following

Carl Siesennop was elected captain and most valuable
player of the squad by his teammates. He played the center
position and played it very well. Nine of the ten lettermen
returning next year will be Juniors. So watch them roll next
year and the year after.

MOSINEE 13-TOMAHAWK 0
The first game of the season brought Mosinee
here. Last year Tomahawk held Mosinee to a
scoreless tie. This year Mosinee proved to be the
stronger. With speedy backs and a hard charging
line, Mosinee kept up their attack throughout the
game. Tomahawk threatened only once, but was
stopped dead near the Mosinee ten yard line.
Mosinee scored in the second and third periods.
PHILLIPS 6-TOMAHAWK 13
Tomahawk played Phillips on a very muddy and
slippery field. This victory brought back Toma-
hawk's spirits. Because of the slippery and muddy
condition of the field, there were many fumbles.
Phillips threats were stopped by Tomahawk's hard-
charging line. Tomahawk kept Phillips guessing
throughout the game, by mixing reverses and passes
with a fine running attack. Our first marker came
in the first period after a blocked kick. Our second
touchdown was scored in the third quarter and
Phillips followed with a long touchdown pass in the
MINOCQUA 6-TOMAHAWK 13

eleven. They kept the Islanders constantly in hot
water. Missing many opportunities to score, our
boys marched up the field only to lose the ball near
the goal line. Coach Derscheid substituted very

first and second periods on long steady drives. Min-
ocqua scored on a long touchdown pass in the clos-
ing minutes of the game.
MEDFORD 20-TOMAHAVVK 0
Medford kept its big guns unhindered through-
out the game. They were seeking revenge from the
previous year, in which the score was just reversed
with Tomahawk on the long end of the 20-0 count.
The Red Raiders gained ground almost at will.
Only in the third quarter was the Tomahawk team
able to stop their heavier opponents. llfledford scor-
ed in the first, second, and fourth periods. Toma-
hawk threatened seriously only once during the
third quarter, but Medford's heavier line again
proved superior. Despite this defeat, the annual
homecoming was quite successful with a parade in
the afternoon and a dance at night.
PARK FALLS 27-TOMAHAWK 0
Park Falls kept up their hard driving attack the
whole game. Outweighed heavily in every position,
Tomahawk just couldn't pull the trigger. Park
Falls combined speed with deception and weight to
run up four touchdowns. The Tomahawk boys
never even got into scoring position. Handicapped
by the injuries of five starting men, the boys just
couldn't stop the powerful Park Falls team. With
ten lettermen back, Tomahawk should really roll

With four lettermen back from the previous year,
Coach Cherry started practice a week after football
season. Because of a football injury one of the
lettermen was laid up for the first two games. To
fill the vacant posts left by the seniors of the pre-
vious year, two promising sophomores were placed
in the regular lineup. After practicing three weeks
the inexperienced squad journeyed to Mosinee.
Here the Hatchets beat a scrappy lllosinee team
24-19. The following week they beat Phillips in
another non-conference game by a score of 22-16.
The week after that the boys were all set for their
first conference game with Stevens Point.
The game was a ding-dong affair with one team
leading and then the other. The Point finally
squeezed out a two point vi-ctory in the closing
minutes of the game. It was a tough game to lose.
The next few games Tomahawk flashed hot and
cold at different intervals. By Christmas the team
held a 500 percent rating in conference play. After
Christmas the Tomahawk boys just couldn't find
the basket for a few gamesg making less than
twenty points per game. At Nekoosa the boys were
definitely on. They raked up eighteen points in the
first quarter and held a comfortable lead through-
out the game. The forty two points made in this
game were the highest score Tomahawk made dur-
ing the season. The last few games the boys played
fast and hot one quarter and very cold the next.
The team ended up in fourth place in the Wis-
consin Valley Conference. All the games except
the Nekoosa game were low scoring. The total
number of points for the whole season was 349.
The total for the opponents was 392. Tomahawk's
average per game was 21.8 points, while their op-
ponents averaged 24.5 points.
There were only sixteen boys out for basketball
this year excluding the freshmen. Out of these six-
teen, four are seniors who will graduate this year
and two are juniors. So with plenty of good ma-
terial back next year, and some promising freshmen
coming up, the team ought to do better than this
Entering the Rhinelander tournament with a' 500
percent average for the season, the boys played a
hard fought game against Antigo. With the lead
changing hands many times in the first three quar-
ters, the crowd went wild. At the end of the third
quarter the score was tied at 18 all. During the
fourth quarter three Tomahawk men left the game
via the personal foul route. During this quarter
the Antigo boys got hot and threw in six baskets
to beat Tomahawk 34-25. The second night a de-
termined Tomahawk team faced Crandon. Play-
ing six minute quarters the team was nosed out by
a 20-17 score.

The annual Band tournament was held in Mer-
rill, May second and third. The band was entered
in Class C. They were awarded a "second" in con-
cert, zi "first" in marching and in sight reading. As
a warm-up number, the band played, "The March
of the Steel Men" by Belsterling. The required
number was, "The Crusaders" by Buchtel. As a
selective number the band gave "The Scarlet Drag-
on" by Hanneman.
The instrumental soloists did right well for them-
selves, likewise. Evvie McCor'mick for the third
successive year won a first in saxaphone solo. Norma
fljaderewskij Krueger was chosen top pianist over
sixty-four other contestants to play at an all-star
concert Friday night at Merrill, the first day of the
tournament. Needless to say, she got a "first".
Her selection was "Impromtu" by Rienhold. Lilas
Whipple, for the second successive year, won a first
for a flute solo.
Norma Krueger, by virtue of her excellent show-
ing in Merrill, played her solo in St. Paul. After
much delay we found she was awarded a 2nd di-
Right here and now I think we should stop and
give a nice big bouquet to that band of ours, a really
worth while crowd. Their volunteer playing and
summer concerts, in fact, every thing they do is a
credit for us to be proud of.

"Something new has been added", that's the

annual Winter Concert was held this year on jan.

of Alphonse Tudesco, the new leader, the band put

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
When l'm calling yooo-ooo-ooo. No, My friends
this is not the Chattanooga Choo Choo. lt's mere-
ly the Girls Glee Club. The gals sang at the tour-
nament May 2 and 3 at Merrill. They rendered
"June Rhapsody" and "The River", the required
number. While drifting on the river, they drifted
too far and received a "second", but that's pretty
good too. It is not perfect, but who wants perfec-
tion anyway? If everyone was perfect there would
be nothing to criticize. Think how many people
would be thrown out of a job, and of how many
more would be very unhappy, because they would
not have anything to moan about. Oh now, l'm
off the track again. Let's see, where was I? Oh
yes, the tournament.
Well, the soloists were really cooking with gas.
Two "firsts" and two "thirds": Jean Orcutt and
Marge Hebert, Darlene Morren and Phyllis
Kropla, respectively. The one quartette, Orcutt,
L. Bronsted, E. Martin, V. Ball received a first
and the triog C. Stoke, L. Kuehling, G. Lambert
likewise. The other triosg M. Feind, L. Thomp-
son, V. Coey and M. Wurl, D. Neumeyer, D.

BOYS GLEE CLUB
Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! Are the Boys Glee
Club some fishermen. They went in the "swim"
at the Tournament "Waters" on May 2nd and 3rd,
at lvlerrill, Wisconsin, a well known resort. How
they did it I'l1 never know, but while they were
casting in "The Sea" they caught a "2nd".
The boys quartette, seeing the Glee Club go,
were not satisfied with the streams around here and
began singing fgood, tool "I lVIust Go Down to
the Sea Again". They sang so loud that they
caught a first fand that's no minnowj. Nice catch-
in', eh what?
The soloists weren't the fishing type, although
George Bartelt did go "travelin" and received a
first. Gordon Mitchell went to find "Where His
Caravan Had Rested" and found a second. Leland
Helgeson stayed home with his "Vilia" and received
a second also.
Speaking of George Bartelt, and I was a few
minutes ago--he not only "Traveled" around Mer-
rill, but the vagabond spirit really got him. He
"traveled" clear to St. Paul to the National Music
Tournament, where he received a "2nd" which
means practically perfect!
The Boys Glee Club has never been very large at
any one time, but they have always turned out a
grand performance. If I had a hat on, I'd take it
off to them!

-HI 30 Ili--
About the fifth week of school the debate teams
begin slinging their pros and cons at this years ques-
tion: "Resolved: That every able-bodied male
citizen in the United States should be required to
have one year of full-time military training before
attaining the present draft age."
On Dec. 16 the Rhinelander teams journeyed
over for a practice debate. For this Mae Crapeau
and Leland Helgeson composed the affirmative
team and Marlie Grube and Joe Theilerg Roger
Bronsted and Bruce Bishop, the first and second
Due to misconception, misinterpretation, etc. of
the question the debate club began to dissolve in-
stead of resolve.
The disbanding of formal debate teams was to
result in a round-table discussion-patterning after
King Art and his knights. Possibly the table turn-
ed out to be square 'cuz we've heard very little
about it since.

Ushering in the '41 sessions of thefnhen gang"
were fourteen women. The first thing to do, after
electing V. Ball, S. Stoke, and J. Mayer, Pres.,
Vice., and Sec., respectively, was to draft fifteen eli-
gible females. The way the males around here talk,
you'd think this was an impossibility. Anyway, we
got the fifteen and proceeded to initiate them with
an initiation party on Oct. 23.
The club, as usual, had charge of Homecoming
-getting preparations in full swing, at least the day
before. What with an ultra-torrid bonfire, multi-
colored goal posts, super delux cheering, a colossal
parade, and a dance, they followed precedent and
broke all records.
Getting back to facts again, but still listening to
the cheerleaders cheer Cthey ought to cheer-we
paid 31.35 for each "THD We had to raise some
money. For this we decided to follow tradition and
sell candy at all the home games.

about 7:30 Cwe don't have to come at 5:30 with

AN N UAL BOARD
Under lNIrs. Brady's guiding hand the Annual
Board whipped up a creamy good start on the pro-
duction of the '42 annual.
Our meetings are held every Tues. in any room
in which the biggest gang of us gathers. This is
the usual procedure: Big QU Chief Theiler is hand-
ing out unclean looks for this, that, etc. while Hill
is reminding us to "Remember Pearl Harbor"g Pat
and Marlie are talking or listening to Shirley N.
and Althea giggle at puny Pertmer who is worry-
ing about the snaps Cnot napsj he hasn't yet taken.
Waltzing around is Marge Hebert-trying to get
us all to vote on cover designs. Our financier, Bob
Fitze, in the Bkkg. room staring, while Sal Stoke
is on her prayer bones praying for more typing.
Kluball and Stahl don't contribute much 'cuz they
never quite get to the meetings.

Miss Floyd, the junior class advisor, had another
success this year in the Junior Prom. The gym was
decorated in varying shades of rose. The music was
supplied by Ted Gaye's Orchestra from Oshkosh.
In addition to the students, there were many ex-
grads and out-of-town kids. The juniors played
silent this year and their choice for king was not
known until November. It finally was announced
at a dance, that Duane Alberg would be "King",
The Grand March was really "scrumptootiful".
The queen, Pat Ball, looked really lovely in a filmy
dress of net over pink taffeta, decorated with velvet
bows and pink roses. Norma Krueger had a white
lacy dress, pale blue accessories and was ably es-
corted by Bob Dean. Next in line came Marlie
Grube in a white dress of Cshe doesn't know what
kind of materialj looking very pert with Harlan
Kuehling. Blossom Schlottke looked very quiet and
cute in a blue embossed marquisette dress with
Lester Dean. Shirley Nyberg and Bob Hansen,
those two steady-steadies, were next. Shirley Wore

cha! La Conga! Ohh-Si Si Sallee Stoke's Latin

chiffon-she was with Harry Lund.

weren't there-What, you were? Oh, excuse me!
Breaking the ice for this season's "rat races" was
the Debate club who sponsored their dance on the
nineteenth day of September.
The second happening of this sort was the Home-
coming dance of Oct. 18, given by the Pep Club.
The gym was decorated for the celebration with
four hoops with net hanging from them, each sus-
pended on a snowy-white backboard. On the floor
were painted a number of black and red lines in a
most artistic design.
On Oct. 30 the Sophomore Class swung out with
a barn dance. Everyone came dressed for the occas-
ion in straw hats, gingham dresses, overalls, pig-
tails etc. Along with the usual jive came a few
square dances and the like.
The Juniors gave their dance on Nov. 14. At
this time Jim Ellis was proclaimed Prom King for

Jam Sessions when the Seniors came out with a

ANNUAL BOARD PLAY
time was the early fallg the occasion, the
Board play. In "The House of Greed",
Marge Hebert took the part of Letitia Roberts, a
wealthy and ancient spinster who thought there was
no better sport than hoarding money. For this rea-
son she persisted in making life miserable for Ma-
mie, her maid CPat Ballj and her nephew Cedric
Roberts, alias Lloyd Stahl. The latter had a girl
on the string that L. didn't approve of. The girl
was Gwenda Lee, an actress, in real life Marlie
Grube. Sally Stoke as Carlotta was almost sen-
tenced to death by Detective Brooks, an imposter
and Bob Fitze, for the murder of her sister Letitia.
The partner in crime and also Mamie's brother was
Jerry MacArthur, a Vacuum cleaner salesman and
Joe Theiler. Rather involved .... but good!!??
Shirley Nyberg had charge of the properties. The
cookies were the object of a mad dash after every
practice. Albert Pertmer was prompter and Hill
was backstage doing nothing. He did manage to
get in free!
Miss Floyd donated her services as director.
