Ever wonder where that came from? The high school band director presents the tune of “College Boy” to his students in 1927. He then asked them to come up with words to go along with the melody. A school wide contest was held. The judges were unable to decide the winner, so they took the first part of one song written by Gordon McNown and the last part of another song written by Dorothy Cole, Alice Christensen, Vera Grown, and Leota Plunmkett to combine into the traditional song we still sing proudly today.

Don Leicht continued to publish the New Lisbon Times and Juneau County Argus until 1913 when his father again took over the publishing of the newspaper. In 1922 his son, C. A. Leicht, Jr. became associated with him and after the death of Mr. Leicht, Sr., in 1932 his son continued in the publication of the newspaper until January 1950, when the plant and good-will was sold to Larry Arnold. The Leicht family was part of the publishing business for over 60 years.

In 1857, the Juneau County Argus was founded in New Lisbon by J. H. Wells and edited by him until February 1862. R. B. Rice, founder of the New Lisbon Republican, was associated with Mr. Wells for about six months. In 1862 N. V. Chandler became its publisher but the paper suspended publication in November of that year.
