1950 Glass gfistory
Yes, the freshman class! Remember the days when we handy freshmen car-
ried the green books of directions around by the order of the senior patrol? All
the things in the green book were soon forgotten, as we were accepted into the
student body. We all rushed from class to class, fearing we would be late if we
stopped for a drink of water, or to speak to a friend. We soon learned that we
had lots of time between classes, and if we were late, all we had to do was to go
to the office. We were all a little brighter when we went into our sophomore year.
While we were sophomores everything happened! Good and bad-mostly
bad. We started to do many more things of "interest,', such as having a most
clever music box for our homecoming float, a float which would never have
been finished were it not for Miss Beattyis unselfish help. We didn,t even get
recognition for it. Why? The scotch tape could not withstand the "mild" gale
blowing that day-we found, but too late! Then came the "Fiesta de Mexicov
which turned out fair except for the loss of one ceiling, slightly fallen, due to?
Again: scotch tape! But Miss Pfeifferis quick thinking and again Miss Beatty's
sparkling wit pulled us through. The rest of the year We spent selling candy, pen
and pencil sets funder the direction of Mr. Edwards! and anything that would
make money for our Junior Prom, and having learned the hard way, this year
we'd at least gained lots of valuable experience. QWe hoped!!
When we were juniors, we worked like mad to make enough money so that
we could have a fine prom. We sold hot dogs at the games and made our millions.
Our prom with the music by Bob Stevens was a great success treason: no scotch
tape!! and we even made a few cents. We used the theme of a Dutch Pollenaize,
and had a windmill and stream with a bridge, all in the Dutch Carden. We must
mention, too, that our ingenious "Beat That Tigerii float, for homecoming, brought
home second place honors for us. QWe had used thumb tacks.!
Last, but not least, our great senior year came. Boy! By this time we really
felt like big shots, and after all, we were!! Our senior year brought us many
things to do and it was here that we really learned to appreciate the assistance
and guidance of our advisors, Mr. Edwards, Miss Beatty, Miss Pfeiffer, and Mr.
O'Hara. First we made another float, and were greatly disgusted when it didn't
win first or second or even third prize falthough it had honorable mention!, but
this soon passed and we were thinking of other things. Next came our great
Rose Dance. Now, past-masters at the art of decorating, we efficiently carried
through our plans and had lots of fun breaking the profit record-by some 358.
Our senior class play was soon decided upon and we CMr. Edwards! selected
Snafu as being a good one. It was worked on and over, and over again, but
f 1' 'Q'

finally given to a good attendance and many laughs. One day all the seniors
dressed up fand really looked swellj for their senior pictures. Cheese!-Then we
had the excitement of ordering our announcements and cards-plus the "grande
exchangef, We all looked forward to our class trip in the spring and loved every
minute of it.
The closer June came the sadder we felt-as you lucky underclassmen will
some day realize-and we gals participated in the Mothers' Tea with slight lump
in throat. Then-it was here-we had made it! Graduation-in all its conglomer-
ate emotions of relief, excitement and sadness. Here-and gone-We all hate to
leave, but guess it just caift be helped, as all good children must move on, fso

fffistory of the Glass of 1951
In September, 1947, we made our entrance into XV. C. H. XVhen the election of class officers
was held, we were not too "good," so we were only allowed to elect a president, Bob Clark,
As sophomores we accomplished more. The officers elected for the sophomore year were: jerry
Cillett, president, Tom Benton, vice-president, Mary Durkee, secretary, Bill Iloerbert. treasurer. XVc
made a lloat that won third prize in the llomecoming parade, and we put on our first dance entitled
"Old Heidelberg," with Sue Tresch reigning as Queen.
Last fall we became juniors and elected XVayne Schacht, president, Balph Stork, vice-presidentg
jerrf' Cillett, secretary, and Ann Abraham. treasurer. Again this year the class of ,51 captured third
place for Homecoming floats with the idea of suckers and the motto, "Lick 'Emf' Along with the prize
money from the winning Hoat, we were very busy selling hot dogs and candy in order to sponsor our
great event-the junior Prom. Besides the excitement of the Prom, we got our class rings that will remind
us of our happy days spent in good old XV. C. H. S. The junior class was well represented in all of the
activities of XV. C. ll. S. such as: band, orchestra, chorus, track, the basketball team, football, and base-
ball teams, G.A.A., and dramatics.

The Class of '52 entered the halls of good ole
NV.C.ll.S. last September with the usual Ways of
freshmen, some of us very shy and timid, while
others were always ready for a practical joke Qon
someone elsel. .-X few were on the paths of knowl-
edge and the rest. well-on other paths. After the
Freshman Reception. when our day of dressing
as washer-women and Indians was over, and
book carrying and allahing in the halls had come
to an end, we headed for more serious things:
girls for fellas. and yice versa. Poor Mr. Edwards
really had a tough time with us, as I suppose he
does with all freshmen, but we finally made the
grade fmost of us, that ish.
The freshman football team really went to
town. especially with Dick BCSSUI' as one of th:
top stars. The basketball team did all right, too,
winning almost every game.
Of course, the girls know this class history
wouldnt bc complete without mentioning the
fond ways in which our senior sisters took care
of us all through the year and proved to be truly
XVith all the trials and tribulations the year af-
forded us, it is one we always keep as a favorite
memory, our freshman year at XV.C.lI.S. Our

Once we, the worker hees, of the 1950 1Vo01I--
eohi were chosen, we were all set to get to work.
As early as last june. the initial plans were made
when a group of the executive staff took a trip
into Chicago to confer with the engravers on the
plans of the hook, and to start the preliminary
work of choosing the color. the theme, and start
NVhen fall rolled around. that poor layout or
dunnny, went through various stages of change
and improvement, as we planned and replanned
our pictures. Then we took them like mad, with
the photographer's help. of course, conferred with
the represelitatives from the engraver's and the
printers planned our covers and type style. XVith
this done, we were set to lay out our Hnal, or
At the end of the semester, we took time out
to plan and produce the annual Rose Dance,
and to plan for the regal court. The night of the
hall found Noralielle Chenoweth, the queen-bee.
XVith this dance over, we again hihernated
each sixth hour to our hive in Room 208, hattling
Thrown in somewhere is the money prohlem.
Sweet as honey was the candy we sold after
school, hut, sweeter still was the profit it showed.
Following the standards set hy the '24 1Voozl-
colzi, we proceeded to sell space to the local mer-
chants and professional people. NVe found that
this, with the candy money. and the money left
hy the '49 hook. accounted for ahout half of the
requfred amount. This is where you, the suh-
scrihers came in. NVe started our suhscription
drive, and guess what? NVe found that we were
not going to he in the hole this year. That made
us all huxz-most happily.
Then, with the money, the plans. the pictures,
and the copy, we were all set to "Put it to hed,"
as they say in the journalism trade.
YVe had on hand next the most agonizing pe-
riod of all. This was the time we had to wait for
the hooks to come hack. XVe did, however, make
use of this time hy sponsoring a record dance,
and a Pow-XVow, to welcome the 1951 staff,
and to give them "sage-'i advice.
At long last, the hooks arrived. XVe patiently
passed out the hooks to the suhscrihers and then

There is much accomplished under the superh
direction of Mr. Olson. The hand holds concerts
in the fall, winter, and spring. The hand is al-
ways a welcome sight as they march down the
foothall field at the home games. Their clever
formations show lots of hard drill work. They
also play at the halves, and between games, at
the haskethall games.
In the spring of '49 the hand was represented
in the district contest, which was held at Elgin.
XVoodstock can he very proud of the fact that the
hand came ont in first place. The solos also went
to the district, and later were represented at the
state meeting in Canton. The solos did very well
at the state meeting. The results are as follows:
The clarinet quartet, second, the woodwind
quintet, first, the French horn solo, first, the
trombone solo, third, the piano solo, secondg and
the French horn quartet, first.
The hand did not go to Canton. Instead. they
chose to take a trip to the XVisconsin Dells and
Devils Lake, which they really enjoyed. Each
year the hand tries to take an organized trip in
to Chicago to see a symphony orchestra play.
This year in March they went to hear Francis
Scotti and were really thrilled hy his perform-

This organization is usually called an orches-
tra, but because there are very few violins, it has
been called a bandestra. This very fact has
caused the smooth. almost symphonic whir-like
strains produced by these melodic hummers.
Practice is held every sixth hour on NVednes-
day. Bandestra holds concerts in the fall, winter,
and spring. They also play for Mothers' Tea,
graduation, the all-school play and senior class
play. This year they are concentrating on popu-
lar songs so they will be able to play for assem-
The bandestra is also under the direction ot
Mr. Olson. This year there are twenty-three mem-
bers representing this organization.
This is a national honor society organized for
the purpose of promoting dramatics in the high
schools. Our troop, number 991, was organized
this past fall after our sponsor, Miss Young, re-
turned from the National Thespian Meeting at
Bloomington, Indiana. the home of the Univer-
sity of Indiana.
To become a member, one must attain ten
points for performances in various productions.
The point scale is set up in the constitution. He-
eently initiated were members not pictured:
Marilyn Thomsen, joan Vannick, Ralph Stork,
and Ronald Braukhoff. It is expected that sev-
eral others will qualify by their participation in
the senior class play. Honorary members are
Miss Pfeiffer, Miss Beatty, Miss Himmler, Miss
NVitt, and Miss Czarnecki. Mr. Edwards is the co-
sponsor. Pictured below are: standing, jerry
Cillett, Ken Merwin, Miss Young, Fred Pope,
Harry Beardsley, seated, jean Fitpold, Mary
Haager, Diane Hunter and Pat DeXVolf.
The officers are: Kenneth Merwin, president,
jerry Gillett, vice-president, Mary Haager, sec-
retary, Diane Hunter, treasurer.
For our money The Man Who Came to Dinner
by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman was a
honey of a class play, given by the class of '49
on April first and second. It was one of the more
modern plays presented by the students. It is a
Broadway play and is a take-off on Alexander
Woolcott and how a man comes to dinner.
Through an accident, he has to stay for weeks.
He has a very irritable personality, but does
manage to help the boy and girl in the family
work out their romantic affairs satisfactorily.
It takes place in a small Ohio town at Christmas
time. Those in the cast were: Mickey Thayer,
Ruth johnson, David Frisbie, Diane McMahon,
Lloyd Carlson, joan Heisler, Alice Schroeder,
Diane Collins, john Dobbs, Sue Eversmeyer,
Ernie Bohn, Ronald Burmcister, jane Kennedy,
Bud Henricks, Don Kaiser, Arnie Miller, Ferd

Everyone made a bee-line to the auditorium
last October twentieth and twenty-second to sec
the all-school play, junior Miss, which is a hila-
rious up-to-date story of our buzzing younger
generation. This little miss tried to grow up be-
fore her time. Judy and Fluffy, two main char-
acters, portrayed by Diane Hunter and Mary
Haager, tried walking in their first high-heeled
shoes, almost disastrously, and conspired to
wrangle young men to be their escorts. Others
in the cast were Ronald Braukhoff, joan Dorn-

Stork, Sue Tresch, Ken Merwin, Roger YVhiting,
Ierry Gillett, James Hecht, Dick Besser, Todd

F. T. A. stands for Future Teachers of Amer-
ica. It was organized in April, 1949. Phyllis Mc-
Cannon is president. At the county meetings,
which are held once a month, there are speakers,
movies, or discussions. fSome of the topics this
year were: "Opportunities in the Teaching
Field," "High School Requirements Before En-
tering the Fieldf' "College Curriculum," and
"The Appearance of Teachersflj These are held
in the various towns that have membership in
this club. Besides the county meetings, occa-
sional local meetings are called.
For the local activities, the members visit the
local grade schools and junior high school for ob-
serving and assisting the teachers.
Our organization was established to promote
interest in teaching and to supply information
about teaching. XVe are trying, in some small
way, to lessen the teacher-shortage in our coun-

Every girl is automatically a member of Girls,
League. Each incoming freshman has a senior
sister, a special friend, throughout the year. On
December 19, the seniors entertained their sis-
ters, and Christmas gifts were exchanged. At
graduation, the freslnnen held a party in honor
of the seniors.
During the course of the year the Girls, League
holds small dances. On February 18, the girls
gave a combination Sadie Hawkins and Valen-
tine Sock-Hop. In many ways this is the most
hilarious party of the year.
The outstanding event, however, is the Moth-
ers, Tea given on the Friday nearest Mothers'
Day. In honor of their mothers, a musical pro-
gram is given and the May Queen is chosen. The
most enchanting moment is when the queen of
the preceding year rises from her throne and
places her crown on the newly elected queen.

elected by student vote. Bliss XVitherell
was our advisor. Each Week we were al-

was at home. XVe want to thank the stu-

collect a little nectar through new cheers.
Also we are very grateful to the C.A.A.

The Varsity Club was founded in 1946, with
all the athletes who had Varsity letters at that
time being charter members. The first president
was Dick Lappin in 1946, in 1947 it was Jim
Mackey. in 1948 john Polizzi, and in 1949, Har-
old Beardsley. The officers are elected at the be-
ginning of the school year. The laws and rules
are governed by a constitution. The faculty ad-
visor is O. C. O'IIara.
The annual Homecoming is sponsored by this
organization. This event was a tremendous suc-
cess this year and years previous, both in splen-
dor and finances.
The Varsity Club beneHts the Whole school. It
gives an athlete something to look forward to
and gives members a chance to better themselves
in their athletic ability. All funds remaining in
the treasury at the end of the year usually go for
an addition of athletic equipment, to be used by
This spring a new group of letter-winners were
initiated into the club. This initiation consists of
mild hazing and a party afterwards. A boy be-
comes a member after he is initiated, although
he can attend meetings and take part in activi-
ties when he receives his varsity award. Mem-
bers take a trip to one or more athletic events
during the year, free-of-charge.
Things were really humming in the hive around
Homecoming time. Everyone was anxiously
awaiting the hour of the big game, and after-
wards, the traditional dance to celebrate victory
or mourn defeat, as the case may be. But liter-
ally speaking the festivities never take a turn for
the worse, victory or defeat. The girls were bom-
barded with invitations, and nearly everyone had
a date and a chance to attend, date or no.
The gym was simply decorated for the event,
with school pennants hung decoratively around
the dance floor, and a huge "W" of blue crepe
paper in the center of the arrangement. live in
the hive came from Spaldingis orchestra, and
everyone glided to its rhytlnnic pulsations.
On the night preceding the game, the bonfire
was lit on the school grounds and the rowdy
snake-dance wound through the darkened town.
The afternoon before the game was the big
Homecoming parade which toured the square
and streets of Woodstock. Included in the pa-
rade were twelve floats, representing the four
classes of W.C.H.S. and the various school or-
ganizations. The floats were entered in a contest
and five townspeople were the judges. The CAA,
Cheerleaders, and junior Class took the top hon-
ors by winning first, second, and third places, re-
spectively. Honorable mention went to the Sen-
ior Class-Hurrahl! P
The float contest was not the only rivlary,
however. The queen had also to be chosen. The
candidates for this position were Muriel West,
Marilyn Thomsen, Phyllis McCannon, Dorothy
Stogstill, Shirley Whiting, Wilna Ohlrich, Lor-
raine Schmarje and Beverly Westerbeck. After
the votes had been tabulated it was decided that
"Minnow West was to be the mistress of the
crown. This was the third time "Minnow had won
a queenship, and it is evident she is an extremely

After two days of working like busy bees, the
W oodcolzi staff at last opened the doors of the
auditorium. Unfolding before the eyes of the
many awaiting couples was the traditional set-
ting of the liose Dance. The students had a spe-
cial reason to enjoy this dance. It was the twenty-
first of january and the semester exams had just
been completed. But the sting wore off soon, as
the dance progressed and the alumni kept things
buzzing as they enthusiastically spotted long lost
pals of years before. Mixed in with all the excite-
ment was the sweeter-thai1-honey music of Don
Adams and his orchestra, and while the dance
was still young it was obvious that the lVo011col1i
staff had scored another success.
About 10:10 came the long awaited moment.
The gym fell into a silent hush, as each member
of the qneen's court made her appearance in the
rose covered trellis. Finally the queen, Miss
Noral3elle Chenoweth, appeared in the archway,
where she was greeted with a bouquet of roses,
presented by the editor, Kenneth Nlerwin. Flash-
bulbs popped, and the audience clapped in over-
whelming approval. The grand march which fol-
lowed led into the cafeteria, where tasty refresh-
ments were served from gorgeously decorated
Following the refreshments, the crowd re-
turned to the Hoor to dance till 12:00, when each
couple slowly left the school, each on their way
to the popular after-dance-spots.

VVhen we BEES wuz still drones we dreamed
up a super colossal honey of a ball for the buzz-
ers around school. The affair was, of course, the
junior Prom. The theme for the dance was a
Dutch Carden and the event was appropriately
called "THE DUTCH POLLENAIZED
The couples whirled to the melodious rhythm
of Bob Stevens and his orchestra, who hail from
Milwaukee. By the time the second dance had
begun, the shyness had left the crowd and the
dance floor was packed to capacity. To enter the
floor the dancers had to cross a bridge. A stream
ran from the old windmill-on one end of the
walled-in Dutch garden-to the other end of this
Five lovely misses vied for the title of Prom
Queen. The tabulation of the votes found the
queen to be "Minnow West. The court was: Bar-
bara Thurow, NoraBelle Chenoweth, Barbara
Harrison, and Marilyn Thomsen. As Ann Frisbie
was the class president, the crowning of the
queen was undertaken by the vice-president,
Harold "Harry,' Beardsley, who, with the queen
on his arm, led the grand march.
After the crowning, punch and cookies were
served in the cafeteria, which was decorated in
true Dutch style, with wooden shoes and wind-
mills. The dance will remain uppermost in the
memories of all those who attended it, and the
class can truthfully be proud of itself for this

Woodstock's Varsity football team finished in
sixth place in the North Suburban Conference.
A big upset of the season was NVoodstockis gal-
lant victory of 20 to 0 over Zion-Benton, who
finished in second place in the conference. While
NVoodstock absorbed six losses, they were all
close, hard-fought games. Many of the players
will be returning next fall and everyone hopes
for a better season.
The co-captains of the team this year were
two seniors, Harold lieardsley and john Polizzi.
Bob Clark, Bud Tryon and Wayne Schacht re-
ceived honorable mention for the All-Conference
Team. Tryon was also high scorer for the team.
Dick Ceister was the first freshman to win a var-
sity letter in many years.

XVoodstock Varsity basketball this year
was not as good as it was expected to be.
The first five consisted of all juniors, and
there were only two seniors on the whole
squad QLarson and Framej. Clark and
Dermont were the only two first-team
players back from last year. XVoodstock
lost six games in a row and then turned
in their first win against Iluntley, in the
Nlcllenry County tournament. Then, in
the Nlooseheart Invitational Tournament,
YVoodstock won by an upset against
Lockport. In the second game of that
tournament XVoodstock lost to a very su-
perior team. Geneva. They stalled so el'-
fectively in the last quarter that XVood-
stock didnt make one point.
In conference play this year we only
won two games and lost ten. YVe were
very disappointed to lose bloc Schroeder
fbecause of illnessj after the last Crystal
Lake game. Near the end of the season,
We acquired a new tall center by the
name of Clmck Davis, a big help. Lead-
ing scorer for the season was Ralph

The 1949-50 junior Varsity team last
year was aeereclitecl with eight wins anal
four losses. In the North Suburban eou-
ferenee they tiecl for thircl plaee. There
were six sophomores and two juniors on
the squad. Later in the season four fresh-
men joined the team. Une of their best
games was against Crystal Lake at the
beginning of the season, when they were
hitting almost every shot. Naturally,
there's no other team theyacl rather beat
than Crystal Lake.
Next year we expect a few of these
boys to join the Varsity. As far as the
teams go, in prospect for the coming
season, it is not doubted that XVooclstoek
will have two better-than-average teams
on the floor.

XVoodstock's Blue Streaks were victorious last
season with a 12 and 5 record, which has not
been equalled in previous years. In the newly
organized North Suburban conference the Blue
Streaks Hnished in second place, behind Zion-
Benton. One of the highlights of the season was
the winning of the District Tournament. In the
finals of the tournament they whipped Zion-Ben-
ton to the tune of 8 to 4. Advancing to the Sec-
tional. they lost their first game to Maine 9 to 4.

As for the predictions of next season, the

underclassmen. To begin their season, they held
their animal inter-school cross-country track
meet. The course of two miles was won by Lloyd
Carlson with a time of 12:39.-1. But this spring it
was beaten by "Red" Iohnson in a time of 12:13.

enthusiasm. They later had meets with other

llere it is 1960 and we are walking up Main Street of VVoodstock, which has
really grown into a metropolis since that High School Class of 1950 cut loose on
the world. Neon lights flashing everywhere. "Oh, excuse me,'i I was so busy
looking around I didn't watch where I was going. And who did I bump into,
why JANE METCALF, and just look at her, a very successful businesswoman.
She tells me she is part owner of the new Button Factory outside of town. As
I inquire about some of our other classmates of W.C.H.S. she says BARBARA
TIIUROW is a very prosperous private secretary to EDDIE BOTT, who owns
a large size brewery. Jane goes on to tell us NORABELLE and DAVID were
married as soon as they graduated from college and DAVID is Mayor of Wood-
stock while NORABELLE is kept busy with the three children. CAROLE
TOIVNSEND and DANNY BORGEN have taken over the booming Chevrolet
business. YVAYNE JOHNSON and BILLY LANG are also the town,s big wheels
since they succeeded in producing the long needed S450,000 new auto. The
famous primadonna, JOAN VANNICK has signed a contract for the lead
in II Trovlltorc. A N N FRISBIE, BARBARA HARRISON, and DEVONA
NELSON a1'e planning a reunion of the class of "1950,', to be held in "The Grand
Ball Room" on the Country Club Road, donated for the use by BOB MOORE,
the proprietor. The reunion is being publicized in "The Scntinclfi which
is edited by the shrewd businessman HAROLD BEARDSLEY, and world-
renowned printer, FRED POPE, with them, naturally, is head-paper-boy BILL
REESE, chief folder for him, one JIM PIERCE. Statc's Attorney KEN MERWIN,
who is recently prosecuting ex-classmate DON KNAACK on charges of grand
larceny, will honor us with his presence at the grand reunion.
Although the popular competitive commercial artists, BOB LARSON and
MURIEL WVEST, are demanded constantly in New York for their unusual tal-
ents, perhaps they may be able to tear themselves away long enough to join us.
The much loved counselor and advisor at Woodstock High for many years,
MISS COULTAS, has just retired. We are all extremely sorry to see her go, but
after all these years of faithful teaching she well deserves a rest. The prominent
and learned JEAN ENGSTROM will fill this position quite adequately. Speaking
of education, FRED DeCOOK, WAYNE FRAME, and BUD YOUNG have just
completed the first four-year course of college after many long years of hard
labor. BUD OUGHTON is milking his millions on the large dairy, while DICK
TRIEBOLD is giving him much competition from White Water.
DICK RICHARDS, now head of M.I.T., has just translated Einsteinis latest
theory. VIRGINIA HOWELL ???? will be here for the reunion-if she
can find a baby-sitter for her two kids, as will LAVERNE B. HELM, I've no
RONNIE HOCH, now head of the Electric Auto-Lite Company, can loaf
now-more legally, that is-as can BILL LUEDTKE, while he invents the latest
t.v. set. LES SCHMARJE is coming from New York, having achieved a new
triumph in the construction of those amazing sets for the new hit, North Atlantic.
XVell, Jane, we have really enjoyed this conversation a11d hope to be seeing
you at the reunion, along with the rest of our class that we haven't time to men-
tion here and now.
