Business places, lodges, and churches offered rooms for the use of the school. A special meeting of the board of education was called and the president appointed a committee to secure rooms. Most of the offers already made were ac- cepted. The Palace theater was used as an assembly hall for the whole student body, Plans for a new building were discussed at once and Robert Messmer, a Milwaukee architect, was asked to prepare plans and specifications for a high school building to cost not more than Sl00,000. On May 18, 1916, the building contract was awarded to the Immel Construction Company of Fond du Lac, for S96,000. The contracts for heating, Ventilating, and plumbing were let to the General Heat- ing and Ventilating Company of Milwaukee and L0ui5 Peters of Amigo, The cornerstone was laid with impressive ceremonies in July, 1916, The building was 61-st used in the spring of the MX!

Typical of the natural beauty in which Amigo is placed the game Sim 35 the present One, The Sire was presented to the city of Antigo for educational purposes by the Honorable H. F. Deleglise. The block was covered with a thick growth of trees at the time and a few of those trees are still standing. Between 1890 and 1902 our lirst high school paper, "The Mercury," was published. During those years also, Latin and German were added to me curriculum. ln the summer of 1902 the build- ing was improved by the addition of several class rooms and the enlargement of the main room. ln the year 1905-1906 our school was placed on the approved list or the North Central Association of Universities, which meant that graduates of this school could enter any one of several colleges and universities without taking entrance examinations. This fact was something to be proud of in those days when camparatively few high schools in Wisconsin were so approved. Between 1897 and 1906 live wooden school buildings were erected in addition to the high school building. The first frame school building was moved to the fourth ward to make room for the public library. The need for a new building and especially a new gymnasium, was felt for some time before the old high school building burned. The building was destroyed by fire on the bitterly cold morning of January 6, 1916. Many valuable school records and trophies were burned, most of which could not be replaced. Antigo is an abbreviation of "Nequeantigo," meaning "green balsam river." Page Six

Nor without places in which is still lovelier learning time also. In 1923 the Slate Department of Publis! lnSIrllCtion made a survey of Antigo schools including sug- gestions for improving our school facilities. Several of these suggested improvements were carried out, especially in the senior high school building where numerous changes were made in class room schedules in order to make the best possible use of the present building, In 1924 the junior high school building was erected and in the school year 1928-1929 the high school was reorganized to form the present junior-senior high school system, The extra-curricular activities in the high school have had a very interesting history. From the earliest days the students were interested in athletics, especially football and basketball, and debate. The popularity of other activities has changed from year to year but almost every conceivable type of activity has been given a trial in our school. Our success in athletics has varied greatly from year to year, of course, but we have a good record of championship teams in football and basketball. Track and baseball have been important in some years. Soon after debate work was begun, by 1905, the the idea of an annual Junior-Senior debate was con- ceived and that has become a tradition which is as eagerly supported today as it was in the beginning. The Hrst school paper, "The Mercury," has already been mentioned. After the publication of it Page Eight.
