Our Big Top, the Woodstock Community High School, Woodstock, Illinois
- presented by the seniors of 1951, who, in the succeeding pages, hope to
bring you the Hgrrrreatest show on earth" - our l95l Woodcohi - actually
patterned this year fto demonstrate our conviction in the worthiness of this
projectl after the McHenry County Iunior Fair, held in Woodstock in Iuly of
1951, the second successful revival of the old county fair of 25 years ago.
So, hitch up your wagon, and hurry to join the fun and the gala atmos-
phere as the seniors board their special merry-go-round and start oft on their
last dizzy whirl.

SPECIAL AWARDS FOR THE
MOST OUTSTANDING EXHIBIT - THE SENIORS
With awe and dread we left our familiar
grade schools and ascended to the great brick
building on the hill. Because our class was the
largest in the school, it was only natural that
it should be the noisiest. As freshman week
drew near, experienced juniors and sopho-
mores were pelted with questions about the
fate of freshmen who had gone before us. ln
spite of our fears, most of us pulled through,
with only our pride injured. Because of our
"over-eagerness" at our first class meeting tat
which time Bob Clark was elected class presi-
dentl we were allowed no more meetings for
the rest of the year.
Needless to say, when we took our places
a year later as sophomores, we were more
eager than ever -- in a somewhat quieter way.
With Ierry Gillett as our president, we started
slaving away on a float for the homecoming
parade. tWe won second prize, tooll As the
year wore on, we came upon our first great
undertaking - the sophomore dance. With
Susan Tresch as queen and "Old Heidelberg"
as a theme, our dance was a howling success.
We even made money! As everyone well re-
members, the football, basketball and baseball
varsities included a large number of sophomore
After electing Wayne Schacht president
of the class as juniors, and winning another
prize for a good float tthird, this timel, we
settled down to the serious task of choosing
a theme for our Iunior Prom. Money was
no small problem, but with candy, hot-dog
sales and record dances we managed very
well. Our theme? ASouthern Plantation! We
broke the record again and made a profit.
Wayne Schacht, Ralph Stork, Bob Clark, and
Ierry Gillett were given the honor of attending
Boys State, while Ann Abraham represented
us at Girl's State. Wayne Rockstead's name
goes down in history as the first of the 1951
class to join Uncle Sam's large family.
lmagine! Seniors! . . . finally for some
of us, and so soon for others. No one can say
we didn't try to make the inferior freshmen treat
us as their superiors. Our floats must be
doomed to win! Once again, second prize.
lt seemed that before we knew the school
year had begun, everything started happening
at once. First the Rose Dance occupied our
attention, then meeting yearbook deadlines, or-
dering cards and announcements, exchanging
pictures, the senior class play, the music fes-
tival, and band contest. Finally, Miss Coultas
began the well-known hustle-bustle of arrang-
ing the annual tour lastl Mothers Tea. For

shall we? Well, what do you know, there's
Phyllis Mitchel taking tickets at the grandstand.
"Hi-Phil. What's new?"
"Not much, just been going to Chicago a
lot lately, for my husband works there, you
know. Have two more children since the last

a new way to count the number of hairs in a

McConnell, he's a brewer. He, too, received
most of his education in Europe, in the vine-
yards of France. I heard he married five times.
I guess most of the class are married and have
families, but, of course, Bruce Schildt is still a

woman lawyer and has won most of her cases,
too, and obtained all the degrees she could get.
"Red" Iohnson became an aviator, but after
he made his expedition to Crystal Lake, he
stayed on earth, fell in love and marriedg now
he's a promising young farmer. Sally Stock
won all the typing and shorthand tests and
was made the presidential secretary.
"And did you know that Hans Hinner is a
big manufacturer in Plymouth Rock? About
four years ago he married Wanta Cornsilk, and
his children go out and advertise his business.
Mary Ann Cameron settled in the art field,
I hear she was educated somewhere in Texas
and her pictures found their way to the Nut
Gallery. In l958 she married Wayman Rob-
ertson and they lived as happily as could be

He never went on to further schooling because
he knew more than the teachers of his day. You
can find him in the slums of Chicago delivering
his flowery speeches among the laboring

the 'Balland Chalk' Pool Association. And, as
rumors go, I heard he has been married and
divorced more than once. Talking of mar-
riages, Dorothy Stogsdill became the wife of
Bert McCannon not long after school was out.
I guess that's the third one that was married
right away, for Mary Ann Rainsford and Harriet
Ebert - married, too!

an athletic coach, but was married and now

As freshmen we were known as a class of characters, but
in our second year everybody thought we had graduated a
little bit into ladies and gentlemen, however, as juniors, We
became known as the class of characters again! We
were still trying hard, though, Cto be ladies and gentle-
men, that isl for when the junior girls weren't trying to be
peroxides, strawberry blondes, or blueberry blondes, they
were selling hot dogs and candy at football and basketball
games, so we'd have funds to put on our successful Iunior
Prom. Two of the prettiest girls were homecoming queen can-
didates this year: Sue Kemp and Shirley Whiting. Oh, Yes!
We took great pride in receiving first prize for our float in the
But we can't leave out the boys. Look who ran the junior
classi President Tom Brody, Vice-President Bob Roush, Sec-
retary Ioyce Ballard, and Treasurer Wally Schuett. The boys
were good in sports, too. We had six out for football, two

Krein, Sue Kemp, Beverly Westerbeck,
Woody Hildebrandt and Sue Hecht.
They are elected, by student vote, at
the beginning of the school year. Each
Week our barkers have a pep meeting
if the game is at home, and really sell
their Wares - our teams - as the
cheers reverberate throughout the big-
top. Peggy Shaw captained the cheer-
leaders during the football season and
Ioan Krein during the basketball
season. Miss Witherell advises this
invaluable and loyal group.

A show Within a show V our Thespians, who entertain us
by the hour, saying "the play's the thing," to bring us from
our studious slavery to the colorful World of the drama. Grease
paint - laughter - tears - hard labor -- good humor -
combined for more fun than a three-ring circus - especially at
Christmas, Armistice Day and other special occasions when
they perform for allot us.
This group, number 99l ot the National Thespian Society,
is growing rapidly, having l5 members this year, who have
earned the necessary points by taking part in the various the-
atrical and speech activities in school. The sponsor is Miss
Young, assisted by Mr. Edwards.

Queen Ann Abraham with Ierry Gillett. Co-Editor
Top billing for the most stupendous showeof-shows on the fair grounds
went to the fabulous Winter formal given by the Woodcohi staff. Beauty reigned
supreme as the queen and court of the 1951 yearbook were presented in all
their majestic splendor. When the magic moment arrived, midway through
the evening's gaiety, Don Adams' orchestra furnished a soft melodious waltz
and each member of the court, with her escort, came slowly from the traditional
rose garden, through the rose trellis - out to the applauding spectators. They
Were: Dorothy Stogsdill escorted by Bert McCannon, Mary Durkee escorted by
Ioe Schroeder, Ioan Krein escorted by Bob Westerbeck, Shirley Zimmerman
escorted by Chuck Berlin, and Peggy Shaw escorted by Wayne Schacht, At
last came the lovely and regal queen, Ann Abraham - with her escort, Tom
Neubacher - to receive her bouquet of roses from Ierry Gillett, co-editor of
l95l Woodcohi. M. C. for the occasion was Ralph Stork. After the Royal Dance
and the Grand March, Ann, and her court, took their places at the queens
candlelit table in the cafeteria, Where punch and cookies were served midst
the lovely rose decorations.
Later everyone returned to the dance tloor Where they lingered until mid!
night, and then proceeded to their after-dance spots. All in all, this glamorous
sideshow proved to be one of the many, through Which our students become
better all-around performers.

Breathtaking, colorful, thrilling - the weekend of Homecoming. A show
of many sides - of varied entertainment, This spectacular event began Thurs-
day, October 5, with a pep session in school arousing school spirit for a snake
dance that evening. Students rallied around a huge bonfire at 7: 15, before the
big snake dance which twisted its way through town, under the leadership of
lack Sorenson i who managed to exhaust everyone.
Friday afternoon each organization and class tried to out-do the other by
entering a float in the colorful parade which wound through the main
streets and around the square. Prizes were given for the most interesting
and original floats. The juniors walked away with first prize, seniors second
and cheerleaders third. That night was the main attraction - the big football
game - when our Blue Streaks upset Warren 27-7. This put everyone in high
spirits for the dance Saturday.
The dance was held in the gym, and a huge crowd of students, alumni, and
friends danced to the tunes of Theldon Meyer's orchestra. The highlight of
the evening was the crowning of the Homecoming Queen, Mary Ann Cameron,
by Bob Clark, president of the Varsity Club. The members of her court were:
Dorothy Stogsdill, senior, Sue Kemp and Shirley Whiting, juniors, Beverly Wes-
terbeck and Barbara Roskie, sophomores, and Sue Hecht and Ellarie Shaw,
freshmen. The auditorium was aptly decorated with the large blue and white
surrounded by the penants of all the Conference tearns. The dance cli-
maxed a glorious Weekend of thrills.
One of the most glamorous sideshows of all was the "Southern Plantation",
sponsored by the fabulous class of '5l.
As the gentlemen and their belles were great showmen, the dance floor
became a whirl of gaiety. This picture was not hard to imagine because of the
many billowy skirts, reminiscent of the old south, the lovely stone walk bor-
dered by flowers, and in the background the large white mansion of colonial
tradition. Trees hung with moss, clipped shrubbery, and Mississippi River
scenes, with a steamboat fading in the distance, completed the sides of
the transformed gym. .
The climax of the joyous evening of May 20, 1950, was the crowning of the
Southern Queen, Phyllis McCannon, by our gracious host and class president,
Wayne Schacht. Qne dance was reserved for the Queen with her court and
their escorts. Following this, George Edwards and his orchestra had a nice
long rest, while mint juleps and cake were served in the cafeteria by colored
Phyllis and her court of Libbie Barber, Dorothy Stogsdill, Shirley Zimmer-
man, Mary Ann Cameron, Peggy Shaw, and Mary Durkee would never have
been able to rule without the helpful advice of Miss Coultas, Miss Czarnecki,
Mr. Dale and Mr. Sparks, our advisors.

A hot and windy May fifth Cl95UD, was
the setting for the star-studded all-girl revue,
which was the main attraction at our "fair-
grounds" - a private show for all the
mothers of th WCH
e S students, staged by all
the girls enrolled.
To officially open this gigantic event, Nora-
elle Chenoweth, president of the Girls'
League, gave the welcome. Then fashions of
the past half century were presented, along
with songs and dances of each period. To
complete the spectacle, there were wedding
gowns, war uniforms, and graduation dresses
of yesterday and today. As a high point of
the program Shirley Whiting and Barbara Kuhn
danced the Charleston, as popular today as it
ing while pages Cindy Schwabe and La Von
Hoch sedately started down the aisle. Then,
the queen's court followed - N
Chenoweth, Marianne Draffkorn, Beverly Ehl
s, nn Frisbie, Virginia Howell, Eleanor
Miller, Devona Nelson, Barbara Thurow, Car-
ole Townsend, and Ioan Vannick. As suspense
heightened, the queen candidates and last
year's queen, Claire Staas, took their places on
the stage. The orchestral accompaniment
changed, the melodious strains of "A Pretty
Girl ls Like a Melody" were heard, and then it
was known! Claire rose, took leans nervous
hand, and crowned her Queen of the May and
Star of the Show.

BEFGRE THE GRANDSTAND
OUR BLUE-RIBBON ENTRIES
S P 0 R T S
They're Off . . . to set a fast pace.
The baseball race of 1950 was "in the
money." For the second year in a row Guy
Curtright coached the Blue Streaks through
a successful season, having a 13 and ll
won-lost record. ln the regular conference race
Woodstock placed tby finishing third? with 2
wins and 2 losses, and won 3 and lost 3 of the
Star performer was Bert McCannon, having
led all our batters with a healthy .474 batting
average. That's really "laying the wood to it."
In the flinging department Roger Dermont
topped all our pitchers by winning 6 and losing
4 games. His earned run average was 2.56,
also high. Bud Tryon fielded a nifty .975 to
lead that department.
New, last season, was the New-Six Sum-
mer League, in which the Streaks took third
place. They were tied for first place all the
way, only to lose the play-off game to Marengo
6 to 5, in extra innings, which dropped them
down to third place. Again it was Bert Mc-
Cannon, who not only led his team in hitting,
but also won the New-Six batting champion-
ship with a .454 average. Bert, up till then,
was known strictly as a pitcher. Roger Der-
mont was the only other .300 hitter on the team,
finishing 6th in the Summer League with a
.379 average. All in all, the team showed the
spirit and determination needed for this excit-
ing grandstand attraction.

Odds are always low when Larry Dale's
pacers and jumpers come out of the paddock.
The track team ran well in the county meet
held at Crystal Lake in the spring of 1950, when
Dennis Larson won the mile, "Red" lohnson
won the half-mile, and Tom Reichardt led
the way in the high jump. The team, as a
whole, scored thirty points in the meet, losing
show money by a nose for one-half of a pointl.
ln the Palatine Relays, later in the season, the
two mile relay of Schacht, Iohnson, Larson, and
Gaylord placed, for six points.
Cross Country is rapidly becoming a fav-
orite sport at Woodstock. This year our trot-
ters won the County Meet over the Woodstock
Course. Always a sure betg Red Iohnson set
a track record of 10:43 for the event. Wood-
stock took first money by scoring twenty-eight
and a half pointsg McHenry showed with thirty-
one and a half points, and Richmond placed
with sixty points. Cross Country is scored
differently than other sports. As the first six
men on each team come under the wire, their
finishing positions are added together and the
lowest score wins.
Something new was tried this year. A
cross country race with Zion was brought be-
fore the grandstand between halves of our
homecoming game, which delighted the huge
crowd of spectators at this annual show of

The big attraction everyone was Waiting
for finally came and really set a terrific pace,
for this year the Streaks took the blue ribbon
of the North Suburban Conference. Our pow-
er-laden team, under the fine leadership of
Coach Guy Curtright, took an early lead and
held it most of the Way to the finish line. The
high-light of the Whole race was the threat of
our old rivals, Crystal Lake, Whom We routed
by the score of l8-6.
ln the final game of the season, the
Champs beat Zion 37-7 in a blinding sleet and
snow storm. Selected on the all-conference
team were Center Don Iessup, Back Wayne

leading scorer in the conference.
A thrilling race, not soon to be forgotten

The future champions at Woodstock High
School had a very successful season. The I. V.
team, made up mostly of freshmen and sopho-
mores and coached by Bob Menke, Won all but
one game. They were halted by a tough Bel-
videre team. Several of these boys will be
moving up to the varsity when football rolls
around next fall. The have the makin s of a
great team and we hope they will lead the field
next year as the varsity did this year.

Woodstocks varsity basketball team was
favored to make a good showing in its race.
Following the odd-makers theories, they won
more than half their games. Robert Menke,
graduate of the University of lllinois, became
the coach of the Blue and White stable for
1950-1951. The Streaks broke fast from the
gate to whip Lake Geneva 48 to 24. A week
later, the gallant team was "passed-up" by a
powerful Hebron squad.
ln the McHenry County Tournament, the
Streaks had the bad luck of drawing Hebron in
the first heat. They were defeated after a fast
race, 61-41. ln the Mooseheart lnvitational
Tournament they were upset by St. Thomas of
Rockford. Again, in the Woodstock Regional
Tournament, the Streaks were paired with He-
bron only to lose a hard fought battle, 68-56.
ln the Conference race, they had a won-
and-lost-record of 6 and 6, and tied for 4th
place in the Conference. The Streaks were a
favorite at the beginning of the season, and
still were fighting for first until the last four
games of Conference play.
The Streaks lost the services of Ioe
Schroeder, to the service, and Chuck Davis at
Ralph Stork led the Conference and the
team in scoring with an average of l4.92 points
for the 12 games in Conference play and l4.59
points for the total of 22 games. He was also
chosen for the All-Conference team for the sec-
ond consecutive year. Bob Clark won the free-
throw trophy with a percentage of .7U4.
ln general, the Streaks had a good season.
They Won l2 games and lost ll.

The junior varsity had one of the best seas-
ons in the history of the school. The young
Streaks took oil for a last start, and held a safe
margin to the finish-line, when they Won the
North Suburban Conference Championship.
The I. V.'s had the terrific record of 20 wins
and 1 loss. Leading scorer for the champs was
big Dick Geister with an average of 13 points
for 21 games. Bringing about this line team
was a combination of brilliant teamwork, sharp
ball handling, and tremendous spirit.
As all of these boys will be returning for
two and three years, they should be leading
contenders for the Conference championship in

ln the spring of 1950, another feature event appeared before the grandstand
and was added to the sports agenda. ln t2nnis, We had a ladder-tournament for
both boys and girls. Matches were held with Hebron and McHenry. We won
both matches with Hebron and split with McHenry. The girls who received cer-
tificates were: Mary Ann Cameron, Glorla Crone, Marlene Steinke, Patsy DeWolf,
and Nora Belle Chenoweth. Boys receiving certificates were: Fred Howell, Ulf
Kahl, Bob Larsen, Ralph Stork, and Don lessup.
ln l95l, matches were held with Lake Geneva, McHenry, Hebron, and Belvi-
dere. The top ones in the ladder-tournaments represented W. C. H. S. in
these matches and presented lots of thrills for the eager spectators.
ln the fall of 1950, Lee Grebner conducted golf practice at the Woodstock
Country Club for boys interested in learning to play golf. Plans are under way for
having a golf team, but due to the crowded spring sports schedule it may not be
possi le this year. There is such great enthusiasm that we hope that golf will soon
become one of the feature races.
One of the great attractions of our grand-
stand show Was the intramural sports races.
Among the main heats were basketball, co-
recreational volleyball, boys' volleyball, soft-
ball and tennis. The entries seemed to enjoy
them as much as the spectators. First, and most
enjoyed, of these was basketball. The boys
team, with Bob Westerbeck as their master.
After the gun sounded, the "Cannonballs" be-
came grandstand champs. High scorers in the
"A" division were: Gene Boyce with 4U points
and Leonard Carlson with 28 points, both were
on the same team, the "Question-Marks". ln the
"B" division, it was Steve Ryan of the "Greeks"
always put on a good
lunch hour. Many of
them showed promise
and might appear in fu-
ture years in the "big
time". Leonard Carl-
son, Steve Ryan, and
others attracted much
interest. Of course,
there were the clowns,
such as Tom Benton
and lim Baker, who
often livened up the
show with their antics.
Among the array
ot cage teams were
such names as the
and "Dubbers". There
were sixteen teams in
all, six in the "A" divi-
sion and ten in the "B"
division. The latter was
divided into the Na-
show for the crowd at
with 37 points and lim

Hecht of the "Gazelles"
with 25 points.
After the basket-
ball season ended, vol-
leyball was the next
heat in the spotlight.
Many of the boys who
had been out for var-
sity basketball had a
chance to enter this
with the rest. There
were over thirty teams
in two divisions. The
"A" class was for the
"stars", and "B" class,
for those who Hjust
played". Mr. Curtright,
the judge and official
starter, had an elabor-
ate tourney set up.

tional and the American Leagues. All three di-
visions raced close, down to the wire. At the
finish it was the "Cannonballs" in the "A" divi-
sion, "Playboys" in the National League, and
the "Gazelles" in the American. In the play-off
for the Class "B" Championship, the "Playboys"
came out on top. The great day had finally
come, The "Cannonballs" headed by Bert
McCannon now had to defend their four-wins
and no-loss record against a good "Playboy"
tThis was because these two heats seemed to
interfere with track, for the boys would wrestle
instead of runningll
At last! Spring! Softball was then under
way. As in basketball and volleyball, there
were the inevitable clowns, but there were also
some who showed promise for the regular sport.
And so, with this, the extensive intramural
race came to a close.

the first time we realized how close our school
days were to being over. Pictures to be entered
in the Hall of Fame for this year are: Mary Ann
Cameron as homecoming queen, Herbie Kemp
as class president, Ann Abraham as queen of
the Rose Dance, and Libbie Barber - the first
of our class to marry.
With the help of our advisors, Miss Coultas,
Miss Czarnecki, Mr. Sparks, and Mr. Dale, we
managed to reach the somewhat painful night
of graduation. Our footsteps leading away
from our now-familiar schoolhouse into such a
questionable, uncertain future were as slow as
the dreaded steps we took up the hill at the
beginning of our first green year.
