This inspired missionary enkindled the fire of faith in the hearts of men and fed the flames with the fuel of the Sacraments and his own burning love of God. The success of his efforts is manifested in a lasting memorial to him-the embodiment of his love for God, his zeal for souls, and his forceful initiative. Materialistically this monument is the sturdy structure of the school bearing his name but in a higher sense it is a structure "not built with hands," a structure that will live forever in the hearts of God and men. Father Alleman was born in 1806 near Strasbourg, Alsace. Little is known of his youth but it is believed he was employed as a foreman in a French linen factory. At the age of twenty he gave up worldly pursuits and began studying for the priest- hood. He emigrated to America when he was twenty-six and went at once to the Dominican novitiate of St. Rose, Spring- field, Kentucky. There he was clothed with the Dominican habit and continued his studies for the priesthood. On June 8, 1834, he was ordained a priest in St. John's Church, Zanes- ville, Ohio, and was assigned to work in the missions of Ohio. He then began his long career as an itinerant missionary. Most of this time was spent in the Mississippi Valley. He traveled throughout Ohio, Iowa, and southern Illinois. Urged by Rt. Rev. Wm. Quarter, the first Bishop of Chicago, to give himself entirely to this portion of the diocese, Father Alleman selected Rock Island as the center of his apostolate. Arriving in 1851, he sought out several German Catholics, among them Ignatius Huber and John Zeipgler. The project of building a new church was broached and taken up with such enthusiasm that he soon had in his possession the prop- erty where St. Mary's church and rectory now stand. A struc- ture, 30 by 50 feet, of limestone brought from the Morman 6 Temple at Nauvoo, was erected by Father Alleman with the assistance of the Littig, Meisner, and other Catholic families. lt was dedicated to St. James and the cornerstone was laid on August 31, 1851. Catholicity was making such rapid strides that in May, 1856, Father John P. Donelson was sent to assist him in his labors. With characteristic unselfishness and tireless energy Father Alleman turned to a new field of activity. Having laid a firm foundation for St. Mary's, St. Joseph's, Sacred Heart, and St. Paul's churches, he placed his iob in capable hands and once more became itinerant. Before this time, however, he planted the roots of the Catholic Church in Moline, where in 1857, the first church, a frame structure, was dedicated to St. Anthony. Following the com- pletion of St. Anthony's, St. Mary's, Sacred Heart, and Holy Trinity churches, as well as St. Mary's, and St. Anne's churches in East Moline were founded. Also in this area Father Alleman organized Immaculate Church in Hampton in 1852, Holy Name, Coal Valley, in 1858, St. John, the Baptist, Rapids City, in 1857, and St. Patrick's, Edgington, in 1858. The racking labor of twenty-five years of constant traveling and privations was taking its toll and in 1863 Father Alleman retired to assume a chaplaincy in St. Louis. He died there July 14 1 in Calvary cemetery in an he had lived, a humble friar intent not about a name or record. lt was trait that made him what blending of the best which made him him and by all who ,f .ff rw... ,.,, Mepwf Q' ...Q X is""f-sum., .. 7 STAFF Editors MARY ANN LAMPO KATHLEEN CONNORS Business Manager LLOYD COOPMANS Arf JOYCE BAKER Circulaiion DONALD SLEEZER BOB DEBREY ED VERCAUTREN Phoiography NEVA MURPHY TOM VALIQUETTE Classes ANNA MAE VROMBOUT CATHERINE TULLY Sports TOM FLATLEY DAVID MILLER Literary MARIE BILLESBACH MARY CATHERTNE REDECKER JOYCE PUTNAM 'MM T51?'f,sg'f5w Ny - - srmiqw A ig, "" is -f A 7-3 wr W ,Www Q .

SCHLARMAN D.D., Ph.D., J.C.D., Bishop of Peoria Bishop Schlarman has been the spiritual leader of the Peoria diocese for twenty-one years. His Excellency, who has done much work in advancing the progress of the Church in the Middle West, has become to us, the youth of his diocese, the ideal leader whose generosity toward God is prompting us, too, to be ardent workers in the noble cause of spreading the faith. 10 Administration The administration of Alleman High School is under the supervision of Father John O'Connor, principal. His direc- tion combined with the guidance of His Excellency, Bishop Schlarman, and Monsignor F. P. Blecke, diocesan director of schools, make for an efficient functioning school plant. The board of directors, composed of pastors of the area once again assumed the burden of finances as well the over-all planning for the school. When it came to details, however, it was Father O'Connor who took over. In addi- tion to his many duties as principal, Father found time in his busy day to meet the pupils, discuss their problems with them and yet took a keen interest in the school's social and sports activities.

Naturally the Catholics of this area look back with satisfaction upon the wonderful growth of the Church here during the past century. Not among the least accomplishments ofthe Church in this community has been the erection. of our own magnificent school which bears the name of the giant pioneer priest, John George Alleman. The work that Father Alleman initiated a hundred years ago is being carried on ever more magnificently through the parishes, the schools and the homes of Rock Island County. lt has been your privilege toattend Alleman High School for half your high school career. Here we hope that you have advance in "wisdom, age and grace before God and man." Your parents, your pastors and your teach- ers have worked and sacrificed to give you the best that Catholic education can offer. Rightly, do they expect you to be the highest type of American Catholic men and women. We are certain that if you live up to the ideals taught at Alleman, the Church will progress even more rapidly than she has in the past, a vigorous Catholic family life will flourish, parishes and schools will multiply and the Kingdom of God will increase. Principal, Alleman High School Administration . 1 N X x The Reverend J. POWERS The financial affairslof Alleman are under the direction of Father Richard Powers. Father adds to his full schedule by teaching Latin and directing the Glee Club. Reverend SYLVESTER PALACZ Building for the future, Father Sylvester Palacz, athletic director, has helped to lay a firm foundation for the Alleman sports program of tomorrow. ln ad- dition to his sports activities, Father has classes in Mechanical Drawing, Mathematics and Religion. Miss CATHERINE COLLIGAN Miss Colligan directs the efficient serving of hundreds of lunches daily. Her generosity and kind- ness produces an atmosphere "almost like home."

They served as spiritual counselors. No matter how busy they were in their own parishes, they always man- aged to be at Alleman to hear confessions before First Fridays and to teach their weekly religion classes just as they also willingly gave up their time during retreat to advise the students in their problems and help them to start their lives anew.

They con- centrated on preparing for the future leadership that they hoped would make the world a better place, a world free of strife and prejudice. Although the year was spent in earnest study, the seniors did not forget the gaiety that is so much a part of this final scholastic year. Once again they set the pattern for social functions, taking the lead in arranging dances and Student Council activities. They aided in the formation of the clubs initiated this year. The Staff of the 1951 PIONEER was composed almost entirely of seniors. The monthly school publication, the ALLEMANEWS was edited by a group of senior iournalists during the first semester, with the iunior iournalists receiving their first experience in the Fourth Estate during the second semester. 4+ y T sr t get iffgtf: of ' r , . , . , ,, , .

Meeting stiff competition this year, the football and basket- ball teams have records of which they can well be proud. The seniors leave Alleman with memories of two short years in this new school. They depart with the knowledge that they have had access to the finest facilities and have been taught by the most capable faculty in the world of modern education. Their un- derstanding of the truths of Catholicity will light the path into the future no matter how darkened it becomes by world conditions. The realization that God is their constant companion gives them the con- fidence so needed to face the life beginning at com- mencement.

" 1 Bishop Schlarman gives diplomas and de- livers address to the graduating class. Graduation It seemed like the end-but they called it the commencement-the beginning. Of what? Careers in nursing, religious life, married life or a college education in a world filled with turmoil and un- rest. Because of the unstable situation of the world the seniors looked to the future with un- certainty. Upon their shoulders rested the great responsibility of world leadership. "Marshall Seeking 27-Month Service For Men, Age 18-Navy Steps Up Reserve Call-Announce Orders Will Go To 47,000"-so ran the headlines as this class of 1951 stepped from the threshold of Alleman High School. But with the Christian principles of a Catholic education to guide them they were equipped to meet all these challenges steadfastly and courageously. .ln ,., Some of the crowd who attended first commencement exercises. jf l A' J ,MQW 'XT i , . gt.-EQ Juniors The temperature was low but spirits were high as the juniors braved cold December winds to conduct a paper drive-the first step toward the financing of the annual Junior-Senior prom. lt was a long way off, this important social function, but the juniors believed in being prepared. They seemed to meet all of their school situations in this ahead-of-the- times stride. Born-to-be-leaders, the group fused scholastic aptitude with social ingenuity and interest with the result that class spirit was kept consistently high and school spirit on a par with it. Being "upper classmen" had its responsibilities and the juniors were well able to meet them never losing their youthful vivacity, yet tempering it with just a touch of dignified restraint. Research papers came in junior year and the reference shelves were well rifled as the literary adventurers explored the mys- teries of subjects ranging from volcanoes and atom bombs to Mozart and Euthanasia! Lab sciences had many of the group experimenting and obtaining the most amazing results. With the Holy Ghost as their patron for the year, the juniors concentrated on the application of His Gifts to their life in the scholastic, social and business world. The future was a bit uncertain but they were prepared to meet it. Junior Presidents: David Miller, Phil Mitchell, Mary Jo Dauw, James Hunter, William Lavery. Secretaries: Joe Wood, Judy Hendricks, Janet Anderson, Mary Lou Reidy, Phyllis Windy. 34 W e.. W " if 11 it Row One ..m,i,. 1 .,. , v-' be , gg, M. J. Breuwet ,':' ? -. I ' A fx? C.

Under the leadership of James Hunter, president, committees di- rected the social, spiritual, and extra- curricular activities of the group. Holidays were observed in festive spirit with games, stunts, and music. Group planning and participation in religious practices ac- cording to the season, oFfered an incen- tive for working more seriously at self- sanctification. Panel discussions of cur- rent issues and problems' helped to mold the thinking of future Christian citizens. Junior Room 203 reflects on the achieve- ment of a happy fruitful year and antici- pates "Senior Year" with eager expec- tancy. One J. Anderson J. Bonne M. Cervantes R. Creen V. DeBel F. DeWaele P.

Other highlights of the homeroom activi- ties were, mental prayer and a novena for Christmas, vocabulary contest, marsh- mallow roast, and a ping-pong tourna- ment. 38 One T. Banaszek J. Bosso K.

Wallace "We are sure that from homeroom 306 will come good Catholic leaders and what is equally important-some who can fol- low, too." This statement is typical of 306. Not only is leadership shown by this homeroom but also scholarship, musi- cal talent, and sportsmanship. As we turn the pages of our scrapbook, we will recall the bubbling laughter be- fore 8:25 in the morning, the frantic last- minute reviewing of the H2O's of chemis- try, and "sum esse" of Latin. This room is proud to be a part of Alleman, in their daily prayers they ask continued blessings for the faculty, school, and students. ,sm w is, M L Juniors' Room 306 A A ' -Q f ww .i"'x,.. 39 'FQ Sophomore Presidents: Judith Anderson, Barbara Noppe, Evans Grigsby, Richard Fitzpatrick, David Westemeyer, Richard De Witte.

And that's iust where the sophomores seemed to be most of the time. The "school daze" of the freshman year had been supplanted with an exuberant participation in all school activities from the incidental classes to the glorious round of athletics, dances, skating parties, marshmallow roasts and between- class gab-fests. The gaiety and exhilarating joy of living that belongs only to sophomores prevaded the six sophomore homerooms and overflowed to both upper and under classmen. Class schedules were pretty well settled now. The courses that appealed to various talents and abilities of the second year boys and girls were marked by a lively intense- ness that was felt even in the required Eng- lish, math and religion classes. With sopho- more boys playing on the first string of the Varsity football and basketball squads, in- terest in the school sports program ran high and wide. Some of the heartiest cheering and sincerest backing for the teams came from this eager and loyal group composed of TOT boys and TOO girls. Row One Row Row Row Row Row D. Beatty A A. Behrens F.

Here they combine the study of the Life of Christ with guidance proiects, and hold active discussions on the application of Christ's life to their own. These students are preparing for active Catholic citizen- ship now, in order to become Christian citizens ofthe future-the aim of a Catho- lic high school. Class meetings follow parliamentary pro- cedure. Class officers are: June Koos, Bob W Garrison, and Joyce DeSmet. Judy An- derson represents the Class in the stu- dent council.

Leadership in social activities, religious life, and scholastic ratings-they concentrate on the theory during activity periods and then put it into practice in school-and outside, too. Leadership in the sports field is also a must for these snappy sophs. Be they spectators in the stand, cheering lustily, or the high scoring athletes-they aim to do it well with that school spirit that marks them "all-out for Alleman." 45 .J H. .ny I X...

Something new been added to Alleman . . . to be exact 176 Freshman girls and boys had come to help swell the school enrollment to a total of 616 for its second year. ln spite of the cards grasped firmly in each freshie's hand that read "You will be in homeroom x with Sister Mary ........,.. as your adviser," befuddled youngsters roamed the corridors utterly lost and perfectly miserable. Where was the glory that had been theirs just two short months ago when they had been THE PEOPLE at the nearby grade school? No- body seemed to know or care that they had been chief patrol boys and sodality perfects and school yard directors, and no sooner would they find the right room for algebra, than a bell would ring sending them out into the endless corridors in search of Latin 214. Even the Student Council officers who helped them make sense out of the puzzling sched- ules, were a bit frightening . . . they were so big and so sure of everything. And the Sisters . . . all different varieties and in spite of their friendly smiles so very inscru- table . . . October 8, 1950 . . . Just one month had passed and the freshies had definitely "or- rived." Even Schedule Six on First Fridays couldn't fool them any more. They were "Hi"ing everyone in corridors iust like the smoothest seniors and making the next class right on the buzz of the second bell. Of- ficers were soon elected, Student Council activities entered into the fresh scholastic, and social life soared to new and exciting heights . . . The green faded and freshies took on the true-blue Alleman spirit. Row Row Row Row One F. N. M. H. R. M. .rv Barrett Cant fu., W ., .

"The Hall of Mirrors" is Homeroom 127- the name the freshies gave it. They saw themselves not only in the glass on the cases, but also in the acting of their class- mates as they dramatized rules of eti- quette, methods of acquiring leadership, and scholarship. There was no activity-not even guidance movies, sports, nor singing-which gave more joy to them than the daily visit of a dignified senior who gave that "first call to lunch." .,.. g -.:....,.

They started their scholastic year with a program in- cluding discussions of the opportunities and ideals offered them at Alleman, fol- lowed by discussions on scholarship and school citizenship. Less serious activities included holiday programs, farcical skits, and games. By participating in all sports and social affairs and by attending classes, retreat, and weekly religious conferences, the members of homeroom 207 have had op- portunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually into true Allemanites.

A two year plan organized to develop the skills and ideals of Catholic homemaking was initiated by Sister Mary Francile, BVM. instructions included the planning and prepara- tion of appetizing and vitaminizing meals: selection of becoming clothes to fit every occasion, child care, first aid and the correct thing to do in any' and all social situations. The practical elements of good homemaking were ever stressed, of course, but more than this were the instructions and actual practice in the social refine- ments so necessary for the cultured Catholic woman. Up-to-the-minute equipment including all the home appliances from a deep-freeze and electric sewing machines to modern stoves enabled the girls to put into practice the principles of good homemaking. ,W-puff-1 Bonnie Lievens and Marlene Pauwels give first aid to Luella Vyncke and Marie Tanghe. s , .. , X , ,I -M .

Qibfgywr F o With the front pages screaming of "Strategic Re- treats," Alleman students took renewed interest in the word which to them meant three days of with- drawal from the world. As a general leads his troops, Monsignor Raymond O'Brien of Blessed Sacrament parish in Chicago led the youth of Alleman during the conferences held in the gym, November 14, 'l5 and 16. A retreat confession by each student was Monsignor's primary aim. If the long lines that formed outside the numerous confessionals were any indication, he was most successful in achieving his desire. To help the students keep the spirit of retreat the senior Journalism class edited "The Retreatantf' This paper came out each day of retreat. It included a summary of each conference, retreat schedules, and articles designed to keep spiritual matters in the foreground! During the retreat the students kept silence for three days. Three days of recollection -recollection of their lives, lives which per- haps often offended God. Retreat ended with Mass- On the altar were placed the retreat resolutions of each stu- dent. Monsignor took these sealed resolu- tions with him promising to return them dur- ing the latter part of the school year so that the students could check them to see how they had lived up to their retreat resolves. Although retreat ended on November 16 the grace and ideals that the students gained at that time did not cease but would continue on through the years and would help them long after the retreat of 1950 had been for- gotten. l Resolutions.

Each month Catholic Action finds a place in the lite of students at Alleman. In October it was the ros- ary, November the Poor Soul's and December the ioyous season of Ad- vent. At Christmas the Home Eco- nomics class packed Christmas cookies and stulted toys to send to orphanages. As 1951 dawned the students again kept pace with Catholic Action. In February the AllemaNews spon- sored an oratorical contest on "The Catholic Press in America." Stations of the Cross were said every day throughout Lent. All during the month of March thoughts turned toward vocations and the future of Alleman students. From September until June one of the foremost thoughts in the minds of Alleman students is "What can we do to promote Catholic Action?" r rg it 131-1,2 4 5 h - f ChristmOS H on and BGHY Mumn P ack Cookies OV vestad, NanCY Com' Pol og Catholic Action l October Rosary 64 Choir Freshmen and Sophomores glorify God with their group has given evidence of great promise for the voices at all the religious activities of Alleman. future.

In order to familiarize the parents of Alleman students with its faculty and school facilities the Alleman Home and School Association, under the direction of Reverend Richard Powers, went into its second year of activity. The monthly meet- ings, being not only social but also at a business nature, made it possible for the mothers to meet the teachers and discuss with them the problems of their children. With this in mind the initial ac- tivity ot the year was Parents' Night held on October 6. The parents followed their child's schedule through a "day" of fifteen-minute pe- riods. To aid the school financially the Association spon- sored a card party and bake sale at the LeClaire Hotel in Moline in November. On February l2, the mothers attended a Day of Recollection con- ducted by Rt. Reverend Monsignor Murray Haas, rector of St. Mary's Cathedral, Peoria.

Joyce Baker was chosen President and Don Bookman secretary. One of the first projects they engaged in was the making of linoleum blocks, not just in one color, but in two. This took precision and patience but the results were satisfying. Club members used gt lg 7fjt these blocks to make Christmas cards. They also made spattered greeting cards. After lettering in an appropriate verse, they made envelopes to match, thus completing the project. In February they made posters for Catholic Press Month. They decided this year to do the unusual. They did. One poster was done in plastic wood fwhich they made themselves, of wood flour, a little glue and flour and water pastel. It was in bas relief and very effective. Another they did all in cut paper. The soft gray effect of the news- paper background, with the black and white of the letters, made a striking poster. Their next project was in ceramics. They planned ro make murals representing Father Alleman's coming to Rock Island one hundred years ago. ln February the club visited the Municipal Art Gallery in Davenport, Iowa, where they enjoyed seeing and discussing the various displays of paint- ing and ceramics. Joe Drefchinski, Tom Wangler, George Baumgarn, Charles White, Gayle Hewitt, and Joyce Baker make Christmas cards from linoleum blocks. S' Y T X ax J ,le--' " .

Meetings of the club were held regularly on Tues- .GW 0 day from 3:30 to 4:00 P.M. to study the theory and to learn how to build radios, lt is the ambition of all the class to become a "ham" operator. The closest to this goal is Alfred Wannepain, a sopho- more, who is in the above picture. Much of the equipment, which the club used, was loaned to them by Father O'Connor-an amateur radio technician of the nth degree. Camera Club Click! Click!

"Food for thought" is fine for sev- eral periods each day but there comes a time when active teen- agers yearn for something a bit more substantial. Probably fifth and sixth periods which meet in the cafeteria are the most popular ones in the entire school day. Variety being the spice of food as well as life, students find their menu well seasoned with tempting nutritious meals suited to meet the demands of healthy and definitely hearty appetites.

Included among the phases of work taken over by Father Palacz are head baseball coach, assistant football mentor and teaching duties besides handling all athletic business. While at the Peoria school for boys, Father Palacz produced and promoted great sports squads among which was a third place state winner in the T948 baseball tdurnament and a "sweet sixteen" entry in the 1950 Illinois state basketball finals.

Both Morris and Lucas are all-time greats of St. Ambrose college. Their addition with the athletic director and Maloney laid the concrete to an outstanding athletic department. Mantor Maloney served his second and final term as grid coach while Don Morris took over the basketball and track reins while being an assistant football coach in addi- tion to this. Coach Lucas served as assistant in football, basket- ball, baseball and track. Joliet Catholic Champaign Marquette St. Ambrose St. Bede Burlington Schlarman Spalding Mooseheart H FOOTBALL EASON Daring to venture into the realm of powerhouse play by undertaking a schedule few schools would try in their second football season, the Alleman Pioneer grid squad ground out a four and five record in 1950 under the guidance of head coach Bob Maloney. Starting off slowly and picking up momentum as the nine game schedule rolled on, the Pioneers hit the top when they edged Schlar- man of Danville 27 to 26 in a real thriller-diller. Alleman's initial triumph was a 7 to 6 nudging of Joliet Catholic. Coach Maloney's pre-season work paid off as Cork Wietlispach scored the lone Pioneer touchdown while Dick Bell converted to supply the margin of victory. Champaign's supe- rior speed whizzed past the Pioneers in the second game as the Maroons won, 29 to 0. lt was the first whitewashing in Pioneer grid history. Paced by Wietlispach and Jim Breuwet, the Alle- A 34 to 0 score is little indication of the fine type of ball the Pioneers played in the finale. Mooseheart had their best team ever and capi- talized on speed to overthrow the superb Pioneer blocking and tack- ling. 44 Cqfbobfssoroyyo 90156. man gridders dazzled Marquette of Ottawa 32 to 6 in the third tilt as the Maloneymen raced for 389 yards on the turf. St. Ambrose stopped the Pioneers a week later, however, with a 19 to 6 defeat. Mentor Maloney whipped his gridders into shape the next week, and they overpowered St. Bede in every department except scoring as the Bedans won 7 to 6. Burlington, Iowa extended the Pioneer losing streak by administering a 31 to 6 blow a week later. Then came Schlarman. After holding a 20 to 7 third period lead, the Schlarman crew was caught in the Pioneer ava- lanche of 20 points in the fourth quarter to lose, 27 to 26. Spalding of Peoria couldn't stop the Allemaneers in the next game as 20 points was enough to overcome Spalding's 13 in a tight game. 70rdo 9e 09012, S, Jef. ref Be tt if Alleman end Chuck Frizol fields a fumbled Joliet Catholic bail.

Les attended East Moline High in his junior year and played on the Panthers' wall. Maloney switched the speedy Massarollo to fullback and he was caught in the indiscriminatory iniury machine but still was able to boot-his specialty. On sev- eral occasions Les punted over 60 yards and his seasonal average was 32. Coach Maloney also did some changing with Clint Westemeyer who was a Pioneer co- captain. Westemeyer moved from halfback to a wing spot. Clint was the pace setter on pass defense and aerial receiving, his spirit marked the team leadership. Chuck Frizol, who operated at the other end, highlighted his final year in Alleman football with an impressive showing against Mooseheart.

Basketball After a highly successful sports career at St. Ambrose College, Daven- port, Iowa, Don Morris moved his polished coaching wares to Alleman High where he is now serving as head basketball coach. Morris is one of the chief plums in the revamped Pioneer athletic department. He reached his greatest height with the Ambrosians after gaining coach- ing experience during the last war as player-coach of the 390th bomb group. An All-Iowa Conference honor, an All-Midwest honor and an All-Slate honor have highlighted Coach Morris' playing career. These recog- nitions along with a natural coaching ability make Mentor Morris stack up as one of the finest coaches in the area. 96 Showing real improvement all along the line over the first season of play, the Alleman basketball quintet carried an even slate in 24 games for a seasonal record of twelve wins and twelve losses. Under Don Morris, yearling mentor, the squad made fine impressions by jumping to a good start before tapering off in the center of the season with a series of narrow losses, only to revive strongly at the final stage of the year. Team work and spirit are chiefly credited with the improvement. Statistical improvement is the prod- uct of the spirited hardwood activity. Rolling up 1203 points, 397 more than in the initial season, the Pioneer squad used the fast break for most of the season. About 1619 shots were taken from afield by the Islander Irish, an increase of 664 over the 1949-50 schedule. Of- fensively, the Morris club potted an average of 50.1 points per game as compared with a 38.3 average during first year competition. Four hun- dred and sixty-seven field goals were racked up by the second season crew as bucked by 290 in the initial season. Floor leader and captain, Frank Coopman, in co- ordination with high scorer, Tom Hoogerwerf, paced in the Pioneers in setting plays and working the fast break.

For their record-setting efforts in the Erie Holiday Invitational Tournament, the Morris squad re- ceived the first hoop trophy in Pioneer basketball history. In winning the laurels a new Alleman high scoring record was set as Geneseo fell before the Islander attack 84 to 69. It was with this game that Hoogerwerf developed into a potent and proven scorer. From the Erie tourney to the Regional meet the Pioneers scored over 50 points in eight different games, a feat done only twice in the entire first season. Hoogerwerf played a maior role in this scoring as he set an Alleman individual scoring record of 250 points. The agile sophomore took 284 shots, a record, and made 101 field goals, another record. Coopman set a free throw record by potting 68 tosses in 102 charity attempts, an- other mark. Bill Lavery, Ed Rodts, Gene Oliver, Hoogerwerf, Jim DeWulf, Jim Wells and Dick Pingel are likely actors for the 1951-52 basketball scene, while such commendable performers as Clint Weste- meyer, Don Anderson, Jerry Forslund, Terry Hew- itt and Coopman will pass from the Pioneer camp.

On April 15, 1950 in the first half of a doubleheader, Corken twirled a five inning no-hit, no-run tilt.

Miss Vann, physical education teacher, has a program worked out for the girls that is different and has endless variety. All kinds of sports are played. ln the fall the girls compete in volleyball, soccer, and bowling. Right in the winter, basketball is being played fast, and furious.l As spring comes on, baseball and tennis and swimming capture the spotlight. Throughout the year, various tourna- ments are played. The four classes so enioy play- ing each other to decide who's tops! Then in the spring the girls held a program to which the public was invited. This climaxed the work the girls had spent throughout the year on rhythm and original folk dances. S O foyoflie- Baseball: AIWUY 102 Bowling and Rhythm The Paladium and Bowladrome were popu- lar places for Alleman girls on Thursday and Friday nights this year. There was the ear- satisfying crash of ten pins as many strikes and spares were chalked up on those nights. There were some crack bowlers among the girls. Mary Ann Morris, Senior, claims the top honors as she maintained a consistent 120 average. Top individual score goes to Shirley Strobe, sophomore, when she rolled a game of l72. Of interest this year was that some of the better bowlers competed in the State-Mail- Tournament. They rolled a 3-line game at the Bowladrome, and the five best scores were sent in. The lucky winners were: Shirley Sheridan, Bunny Sladek, Mary Lou McEnany, Gloria Castelein, and Mary Ann Heydeman. Rhythm constituted an important part of Miss Vann's gym program. It taught the girls to be light on their feet, and to have grace and poise. The girls might have felt silly run- ning across the gym floor on their toes, but it made new women of them. The basic dance were also taught to the girls, so they steps could cut a pretty caper on any dance floor! These included the waltz and the polka. Exercises are wonderful, and the girls had plenty of those, too. The ones to belittle the waist, and straighten the shoulders were two among many. Th M S Cho or mps of fh V E G e , 09' ef!

The girls took to it like ducks to water and really enioyed it. The soccer team consists of forwards, backs and a goalie to watch the goal posts. The for- wards of each team can maneuver over the whole floor and try to kick the ball between the opponent's goal posts. This is a fast game, and many a girl was panting before it was over. There were constant clashes as a forward and back rushed toward each other. But the girls gallantly picked them- selves up and returned to the game with renewed vigor. The game was played in tournaments after school, on a homeroom basis. The Senior champs were homeroom 324, captained by Pat Hutton. 308 was the tops of the Juniors. Among the Sophs, 217 triumphed. And homeroom T29 claimed the honors for the Freshies. rf J ARQFSZ LQ? 74 S: 53752235539 More Sports Basketball was always the consistent favorite of the girls. Though their games were not as fast and furious as the boys', they were every bit as exciting. However there were some hot-shots among the girls and these played the forward positions. This is because only the forwards can shoot in the girl's rules. Miss Vann let the girls use the unlimited dribble for the first time this year. Excit- ing tournament games were held after school. The girls owe their thanks to Miss Vann, and Sister Vera, their competent ref- erees. Volleyball proved another popular sport. The girls soon became adept at setting up the ball and spiking it over the net. At times, play became so exciting the girls just yelled and hopped up and down. ln tour- nament play, Neva Murphy's team of 301 was champ of the Seniors. 302 claimed honors for the Juniors. Among the Sophs, 310 was tops. Homeroom 225 won the hon- ors for the Freshmen. Champs of the Volleyball Tournament.

On this occasion the band made its in- itial appearance to entertain the excited throng. Father Palacz crowned the King and Queen who then proceeded to light the bonfire. In the glowing light of the flames the pep rally was staged and with the backdrop flickering light in the brisk autumn winds, the students ioined in a long, loud cheering session.

In the afternoon twenty-five cars paraded through the business dis- tricts of Moline and Rock Island accompanying the queen and her attendants, who rode in converti- bles. Tension mounted as game time approached. Hearts were heavy at halftime with Alleman trail- ing Schlarman 20-7 but the Pioneers came back and with two minutes left in the game, tied the score 20-20. Schlarman promptly scored again, but determined to win, Alleman made another touch- down and the conversion and the final score was Alleman 27, Schlarman 26. Amid tears of lusty shouts, and wild cheers, the team ran off the field. Alleman's first homecoming was one that will never be forgotten. i0Yf OMIN COMING Crowd grew Winds blew If i The Snowflake Soiree The committee decorates for the Pioneer Prance Parties The social activities at Alleman got under way this year the first day of school when "The Fledgling's First Flight" was held in the gymnasium. The purpose of this dance was to welcome the freshmen to Alleman. Something new was added to Alleman's social activities as the first annual homecom- ing dance was held in the gymnasium on October 26. The dance climaxed the first day of homecoming festivities which con- tinued for two days, October 26 and 27. As usual, witches and goblins dominated the scene of the "Costume Caper," the Hallo- we'en dance held on October 31. To start the Christmas vacation off with a bang the second annual "Sox Hop," which was sponsored by the iournalism class, was held on December 20. Tom Flatley, senior, and Lou Rae Colman, sophomore, were chos- en king and queen. On December 29 the iunior and senior class welcomed the alumni to the "Snowflake Soiree," a dance that it is hoped will become an an- nual affair. The first dance to be held in the cafeteria this year was the "Pioneer Prance" on February l, sponsored by the Pioneer Staff. Despite the brisk wind and snow the cafeteria was filled with iuniors and seniors. The dance was a great success.

Pastel shades on decorations rivaled bright Easter outfits as the Easter Bunny hopped in to greet the dancing couples. These festivities make it evident that "all work and no play" did not characterize the typical Alleman student. Junior - Senior Prom ' Blue moons and twinkling stars high- lighted the Junior-Senior Prom held May 'I7 at Short Hills Country Club. Arrangements by James Hunter, Jun- ior class president, made the evening a complete success.

NO 1-X 1 w jf uux 5 X ff ff 5 X sf X Catholic Press ln cooperation with the Catholic School Press As- sociation and the Commission on American Citizen- ship sponsored by the Catholic University of Amer- ica, the staff of the AllemaNews strives to keep the paper as timely as the encyclicals, as Catholic as the church and as thought-provoking as the par- ables. Writers aim to give the news in the light of Christian principles realizing that it is through the press that Christ can be brought back into secular life, and a strong Christian culture can again predominate in the modern world. Student journalists strive to become competent writers in order that they may wield effectively this "sword of the spirit" . . . to restore all things in Christ. "There is only one tragedy in life," says Leon Bloy, "and that is not to be a saint." lt is the aim of the Catholic press to assist both re- porters and writers in the attaining of this end. AllemaNews reporters realize that they are their brothers' keepers. The opportunity to lead Joe and Bob and Marian to Christ is theirs. The Stu- dent newspaper is a powerhouse. Propelled by the motor of Christianity within, it is a dynamic force. Catholic writing should be the best writing since it alone is based on solid fundamental teachings. Therefore the young Catholic journalists enter into competition with fellow writers from New York to San Francisco, from Anchorage, Alaska to New Mexico. The winning results are gratifying because they prove that your writing is only as good as your message and motivation. tf?1a.f:f? MA 3 -C. MARY KAY GLYNN The Extension Magazine national contest for teen- agers has been a powerful incentive to good high school writing during the past few years. Last year, Jackie Whitacre had a poem published in the magazine. This year, soaring ahead in the national competition, senior, Mary Kay Glynn rated as one of the four teen-board editors of the publication. This entitles Mary Kay to the thrill of editing an issue of Extension and having published her origi- nal short story for children, a character sketch of Miss Catherine Colligan, a series of interviews of student opinions on the effects of television on modern critical thinking and a survey of the trials and thrills of a yearbook production. Pat Minard shows the Catholic press certificate to Jean Purcell, Sara McGinty, Jackie Whitacre, Judy Hendricks, Phil Clark and Dave Miller. f' C H TH 01- fc ' PIPE sg . s, 1 f V milf W' 2 0 A ,,, KJV!!! f 'Q J , 1 i , , . r fs!

The purpose of the contest was to encourage in- terest in and enthusiasm for the Catholic Press in America. The contest was open to any Alleman iunior or senior. Eliminations were made through the English classes. Acting as judges in the finals were Mrs. Mary Haelvaert of the speech depart- ment of Marycrest College and Misses Jacque Fass and Kay O'Connell student teachers of dhdmatics. Contestants were judged on poise, personality, delivery and message. This year saw the opening of Alleman's initial speech department, which consisted of three classes. The dramatic coaches of these classes were the Misses Jacqueline Faas, Pat Byrnes, and Kay O'Connell. The play, "Don't Tell a Soul," a satire based on gossip, was presented by all three classes during the various study halls. The aim of the Alleman Dramatic Club is to promote interest in dramatics and to un- cover previously hidden talents. Topics ranged from the history of the Catholic Press to its necessity in the modern weary, war torn world. The weaknesses and strong points of the press were shown as well as present day out- standing Catholic writers. All the talks led to one conclusion. With conflicting reports on current news only the Catholic Press can be depended up- on to give the truly Christian outlook on the happening.

Vocations Undoubtedly, the most important decision that a high school student must make is his choice of a vocation. Will he choose as 95 percent of all American youths do, the marriage state? Perhaps his life is to be spent doing God's work as a diocesan priest, or in a religious order. A few will find happiness in the single state with lives dedicated to the work they have chosen. Realizing that student life was their vocation of the moment, Allemanites concentrated on making each day, each class, each assignment a stepping- stone to vocational plans of the future. With the war situation making an in-service term almost inevitable, the boys determined to make the best use of this period by studying the military situa- tion and striving to enter into fields for which they knew themselves to be best equipped. During Vocation month movies, panel discussions, bulletin board displays and homeroom activity programs emphasized the qualifications necessary for the successful and happy living of each of the three states. In addition to the prayer for voca- tions recited each morning before religion period, a special Mass celebrated in the gym on the feast of Our Lady of Dolors had religious vocations at Alleman as its main intention. Since the regular Alleman curriculum is geared to fit the student for life not only in this world but also in the next, vocational guidance emphasized the necessity of the individuaI's thoughtful, and prayerful consideration of a vocation and of his own private way of life he was to follow. Terry Hewitt, Don Sleezer and Bob De Smet inspect vocational display. Music Contest Fourteen Alleman music-minded students en- tered the 1951 District Music contest on March 31 at Abingdon, Illinois. Entering both the vo- cal and instrumental divisions, the students found the experience both challenging and en- joyable. This is the second time Alleman has participated in the music event. Vocal entries were Jeanne Meersman, Jackie Whitacre, Louise Cassini, Neva Murphy, and Dave Miller. lnstrumentalists were Louise King, Barbara Noppe, Bob Brown, Virgil Morrissey, Nancy Sleezer, Audrey Geiger, Richard Czupka, Dixie Lee Bellinger, and Bernadine Czupka. r Contestants in the band preliminaries: Audrey Geiger, Margaret Julius, Nancy Sleezer, Dixie Lee Bellinger, R i c h u r d Czupka, Tom Brown, Virgil Morrissey, V Jerry Humphrey, John Brandmeyer, Bill Humphrey, Joe Loontiens.

The luniors enjoy a movie while Terry operates. The ever-present lure of the chemistry and biology laboratories, the home economics and industrial arts departments is being rivalled by a spacious room done in deep green way up in the northeast corner of Alleman. The spot is designated at Room 301. An assignment to Room 301 was welcome news to the Alleman- ites during 1950-1951 for Room 301 housed promises of the mysterious, the unknown. To the students Room 301 meant movies. And every American loves a show. But the movies of Room 301 are only part of the visual aids used by the Visual Education Department which claimed Room 301 as its center. And even the movies of Room 301 had a definite "Schoolish" purpose, namely, to help the Allemanites learn faster and better. The military personnel of World War ll had succeeded in accelerating its educational pro- gram up to fifty and sixty per cent with visual aids, so healthily modern Alleman provided its students with the same learning helps. To pro- vide the necessary devices, Father O'Connor asked Sister Mary Arthur to organize the Visual Education Department in the fall of 1950. Helping her were Larry Vander Vennet, a sophomore, who kept the department rec- ords, and Tom Valiquette, a senior, who man- aged the equipment. The original skeleton staff of operators trained in-service some thirty operators who care for the operation of de- vices within their own classes and during their free periods. Audio-visual As part of the program, Room 301 was changed from a bright white classroom of 1949-50 to a deep green, sound-proof, shaded proiection room where movies and filmstrips could be shown under the best possible con- ditions. As the center of audio-visual activities during 1950-51 school year, the room felt its cupboards filling with equipment-a 16 mm. movie projector, a strip-film projector, one per- manent and two portable screens, a wire re- corder, two record players and complete al- bums of records for Macbeth, Merchant of Venice and Julius Caesar. Rental service of films, strips, records was made available to the teachers through the catalogs found in the conference room of the library. The ordering and arranging of schedules was done by the department. The coming years promise further expansion of the department's activities. Q ,"w if -M Q- 4' f' J I 4.2.

Ever-increasing in size, the Alleman library, in its second year of existence, added many books and magazines to its growing collection. More extensive reading, reference, and study were made possible by the addition of bi- ographies, fiction, poetry, and other types of books as well as encyclo- pedias, histories and general refer- ence materials. The rack near the desk was consistently filled with current is- sues of news, science, sports, and popular magazines for research or enioyment. Sister Wilfrid, O.P., and her assistants were constantly on hand to provide an inexhaustible source of information for those students doing research.

He was honored as possessing an unusually high aptitude for future achieve- ment in science in ,the 'lOth annual Science Talent search conducted by Westinghouse. Tom, a Senior and an all around honor stu- dent, submitted a project dealing with a new method of color photography, and a multiple enlarger for color photography. His was chosen among the winners on the basis of its showing in a science aptitude test, his scholastic records, and the teachers' rec- ommendations. As one of the winners, Tom will be awarded an honorable mention citation and will be recom- mended for a scholarship for college work.

Announcement of the appointment of Monsignor T. J. Jordan as president of the Alleman High School Board was made on February 1 by the Most Reverend Joseph H. Schlarman, Bishop of Peoria. Monsignor Jordan is also replacing the late Monsignor P. H. Durkin as Dean of this area which comprises four counties. As Dean, Monsig- nor Jordan is responsible for the spiritual and temporal welfare of the clergy in 'this district. This appointment is considered a distinction be- cause there are only five other Deaneries in this diocese. Not new at this work, Monsignor Jordan was a Dean while serving as pastor at St. Cecilia's, Peoria. The Rev. Francis J. Casey of Odell was appointed to succeed the late Rt. Rev. Msgr. P. H. Durkin 123 as pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic Church. Father Casey was formerly pastor of St. Paul's parish, Odell, where he had served since April 30, 1946. He was born August 2, 1900, in Peoria. He re- ceived his education at Spalding Institute in Peoria, St. Viator's college in Bourbannis, and Kenrick Seminary, St. Louis. Ordained a priest on May 29, 1926, in St. Mary's Cathedral, Peoria, he served first as an assistant at St. Catherine's parish, Aledo, and then at lm- maculate Conception Parish, Streator, and was appointed pastor of St. Anne's Parish, Toluca, in 1930 and pastor of St. Malachy's, Geneseo, in 1939. He also served as a Lieutenant Commander in the navy from 1943 to 1946. 1 , .Q ml.. .....eC.. -M --.-4 I Af---I Faculty Game ZW "FFT, I 2 Q ll f , xff it , fl at 'f i f Q ,- ll Ur A .1 ' Ili' ' 6 0, ' ,ff Rolling, rumble tumble floor play highlighted the tirst annual Faculty All-Star basketball game in the Pioneer gymnasium on February 14th, 1951.

Erdman, pat- tern-maker and designer, john Deere Van Brunt Com- pany, Horicon, W'isconsin.

It's the kind of magic that enables the com- poser to hear a melody in the silence of the night, and to turn it into sound . . . that permits the artist to lure a landscape from the spectrum, and fasten it to canvas . . . that enables the artisan to see an image in a block of oak, and to free it from its prison.
