State Volleyball Over the years, the Wilmot School and community have kept abreast of the times as they have experienced growing pains, constructed new buildings, and made important decisions to make their school the best possible place of learning for the area students. The first school building was believed to have been built prior to 1884. The location of that building was one block west and a block north of the present school. The first class of seven seniors graduated from Wilmot in 1895. This building was moved and a larger school was built in 1899 in the same location. Cost of this building was $5,000. This building burned January 31, 1914, destroying all school records, books, and furniture. When the first school building become too small, they built a larger school house to accommodate the increased enrollment. In March of 1914, the Board of Ed. purchased a two-acre square from C.F. Porter for the sum of $1,250. This site is where the present school stands. The contract went to Gray Const. of Watertown for $13,781.00. Plumbing went to Cole of Redfield for $4,459. In 1936, the city felt the need for a gymnasium-auditorium and constructed a building on main street where the present community center is located. Many people in the community have fond memories of the old fire escape that was on the top floor of the old school house. For years students played in this and had lots of fun!

Hunting Information for Minnesota: Hunting Information for South Dakota:

A Difficult Challenge By R. Addy

You want to purchase a hunting knife, but you don’t know what kind to buy. Buying the wrong knife could ruin a perfectly good hunting experience, so before you go knife shopping, you need to ask yourself a few questions. What type of hunting will you be doing? Will you be going after large or small animals? Do you want a knife you can use when you’re not hunting? Answering these questions will help you choose the knife that is right for you. There are two basic styles of knives: fixed blade and folding. On a fixed blade knife, the blade is fixed in the open position permanently. For safety, the knife comes with a sheath. A folding knife has a pivot point and lock mechanism that allows the

blade to close at the handle. The knife is good for the occasional hunter, works well for everyday use and is easier to carry and store. However, it is not as strong as a fixed blade knife. Blade design is important, but what about the handle? Classic handles such as wood, leather and bone are nice to look at and are functional. However, newer materials such as rubber and other composite materials give hunters more control in adverse conditions, which means added safety. Clean your knife after using it. Even on stainless steel blades, the acid from your fingers can cause rust. Wash your blade by hand with soap and water and dry it immediately with a soft cloth. To remove stains, use a clean wine cork and a mixture of salt and vinegar. Apply light pressure when cleaning so you don’t mark the blade. Wash immediately with soap and water and dry with a soft cloth.

VHS Tapes

Q: I have almost a dozen VHS tapes, six that have never been opened. They are mostly Walt Disney movies. How can I sell them? -- Sue, Alton, Ill. A: VHS tapes are becoming difficult to sell. In fact, most modern players do not even have VHS ports. Since you live fairly close to St. Louis, one of the better stores that might be able to help you is Record Exchange, a super outlet that specializes in vinyl, CDs, VHS tapes and even a limited number of 78s. The address is 5320 Hampton Ave., St. Louis, MO 63109. ••• Q: I was given a set of four water tumblers made by the Hazel Atlas Glass Company. Do you know anything about this company? -- Carol, Albuquerque, N.M. A: The company was established in Clarksville, W.Va., in about 1902. A sales brochure from 1928 claimed that the company was the "World's Largest Tumbler Factory." It is, perhaps, most famous for the iconic blue Shirley Temple glassware produced during the 1930s. Collectors should be aware that the Temple items have been reproduced. ••• Q: While sorting through some old magazines, I found several I think could be worth money, includ-

ing Batman & Robin No. 403, The Phantom No. 39, and Superman and Lois Lane No. 105. -- Jere, Brownstown, Pa. A: I found your comics referenced in the Official Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide compiled by Robert M. Overstreet (House of Collectibles, $22). Your comics are valued in the $3 to $10 range, depending on condition. •••

Roy Christenson

Killed In Action January 23, 1943 Lieutenant Roy Christenson was a member of the Appleton School Faculty from September 1939 until he left here with Co. M., 135th Infantry, for training at camp Caliborne, Louisiana, in February of 1941. He was reported killed in action on the Western European front on January 23, 1943. Notification of his death was forwarded to his nearest of kin, Edward A. Johnson, an uncle, of Edmore, North Dakota. Lt. Christenson transferred from Co. M., to an air corps unit in October 1941. After training in camps in this country, he was commissioned a lieutenant, assigned to a bombing squadron and served overseas for about three months. He was a graduate of the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and taught the Industrial Arts Department in the local school. Christenson Avenue is the frontage road off Highway 7 west of Appleton.
