The Junior Prom
Perhaps one of the most unusual proms that Waukesha High School
has ever seen was put on by the Junior Class of 193 l. The plan of decor-
ation was carried out in black and white, the design consisting of huge al-
ternating triangles and a dropped ceiling, throwing the pattern on the
floor-a most effective and striking background for the array of brilliant
dancers. A prominent member of the Junior Class, Betty Laing, reigned
with charm and dignity as queen and leader of the grand march.
The committees Were: Executive, John Smith, Magna Werra, Eliza-
beth Hopkins: Decoration Chairman, Mildred Barnhart: Program Chair-
man, Martha Belle Beaty: Orchestra. Chester McCann: Refreshment,
Mary Jane Jeffrey: Entertainment, George Shellestad.
John Davies proved a most efficient chairman, and under the direc-
tion of Miss Hawkins and the aid of the committees the prom was most
original and memorable.

With as able a supervisor as Mrs. Harkness and as energetic a group
of hustling advertisement solicitors and news-gatherers as the 1929-30
journalism staff proved to be. the weekly XVaukesha High School paper.
the Cardinal Star, could not help but be a success either from a financial
or from an informational standpoint.
The students were taught to realize that the advertising section of the
paper was the framework on which the news had to be hinged. Down-
town business shops were solicited by members of the classes, and the ads
came in by the dozens. Thus from Journalism. students learned not only
the two essentials needed for all good news stories-how to write interest-
ingly and accurately-but also the young journalists developed business
sense and had a real practice in salesmanship.
ln forming the Cardinal Star. which came out on Thursdays, the
Journalism Classes did all the work but the printing. the "B" class gener-
ally having charge of most of the news gathering. and the "A" class
handling the advertising, circulating papers to subscribers in home rooms,
and planning the paper.
The 1929-30 Journalism was as interesting as it was instructive, every
pupil in both wide-awake "A" and "B" classes being on his toes and
ready to write news any time called upon. The further advance of Jour-
nalism in Waukesha High would be assured if all forthcoming journalists
had as much energy, initiative. and willingness as those who have been
in the Journalism Classes for the last two semesters.
