Dedication Besides his regular teaching duties which include classes in both gym and iunior high mathematics, Coach Mittlestat also serves as faculty advisor for the Varsity Club. He is well known for his promotion of school spirit, stressing that the ideas of good sportsmanship, fair play, and consideration for the other fellow be prac- ticed not only by the players but by the spectators as well. School spirit does not stop on the athletic field but should be carried over to the classroom, to school activities, to the organizations, and to everyday life. To "Coach" Mittlestat we express our deepest appreciation for the fine work he has done in athletics and in helping to promote good sportsmanship among the stu- dents of Flat Rock. The long hours he has put in working with "the team", his principles of fair play and his unfailing belief in "Flat Rock Spirit" have been a great factor in the athletic records of Flat Rock High School. Coach meets both victory and defeat with equal determination, the elations of triumph never over- shadow his criticisms for perfection. He interprets defeat as an experience in good sportsmanship and an incentive for improvement. Young men of Flat Rock gain much through these many fine experiences in athletics under his direction. Of the many fine records achieved by Flat Rock the most outstanding have been made by the baseball teams which over a period of thirteen years have won l6l games, lost 55, and tied 3 for a .745 winning per-centage. ln addition to this the Ram 9s have taken 8 Huron League Championships and twice finished second. The football records are iust as outstanding. In the last five years Ram grid teams have won 31 games losing only 9. ln his one year as basketball coach the Ram 5 posted a l0 game winning record while losing 5. xi y, 5. , Table of Contents Faculty Seniors Underdassmen Organizations R Sports Actrvrtres FA C UL TY AND ADIVINIS 779A Tl ON , WL .-f" If ,f-'f ,fjj!f pp, iff 1 f x S Faculty and John C.

In ? T Very soon now the Class of June, 1954, will be leaving Flat Rock High School. Three things we will carry away with us: our diplomas, a symbol of education, memories of the past four years, and the thoughts of what is before us. It was a warm September morning, when we left home in high spirits, eager to launch forth upon our high school career. Our enthusiasm vanished as we approached the bleak door, and were frightened freshmen. When we finally got to our home room and a little more accustomed to our surroundings, we again became the same old smart alecks. This was the first time so many schools had been fully represented at Flat Rock. This was a great opportunity for students to meet new and interesting friends from Flat Rock, Hand, Maple Grove, and Carson Schools. In all ninety-two students started at Flat Rock in the ninth grade, but with all the toil, hardships, and homework only forty-nine students have survived the last four years leading to graduation. Sixteen young-brave students have been in Flat Rock for a total of thirteen years. To get the boys and girls better acquainted with each other, we held our first Freshman Dance. The kids were a little bashful at first, but all ended as a gala affair. We elected .Terry Pichan as our president to lead us through the first year. Towards the end of the year we went on our first big trip. Our biology class took a trip to the Toledo Zoo, on a chartered bus, accompanied by Mr. Marvin Mittlestat. One short year later much to our amazement we were Sophomores. At last the boys and girls had classes with each other. Boy! What a change. We elected Bill Kurtzhals as president. This year a small portion of the history class went on a trip to Greenfield Village. Many of the kids furthered their interest in school by participating in band, glee club, Varsity Club, G.A.A., and Student government. After a short vacation we became Juniors. Quite a big year was ahead of us. Committees were chosen to take care of most of the important duties. Gordon Parker was elected as pres- ident. We received our rings from Josten and all the Juniors were walking around with outstretched hands. After much discussion and consideration we selected our play, 'Spring Green,' directed by Mr. John Barnes. It was given on May 7th and 8th. Toward the end of the year we got to- gether with the Seniors and gave our big dance of the season, the Junior-Senior Prom, called 'La Cabret". In June we gave the Seniors a very nice banquet and we escorted them during Bac- calaureate and Commencement. We finally became Seniors. The big year was here. Everyone seemed in a rush. Leo Angelos was elected as president to lead us through our last hectic year. Class pictures were taken, di- plomas and graduation announcements picked. Our last big play was put on, 'Home Sweet Hom- icide," directed by Mr. Thomas Jones. It was given on December 2nd and 3rd, To help us under- stand the system of courts, Mr. Henry J. Van Wyhe took us to Detroit to visit the courts. To increase the portion of the small pile of coins in our treasury, we sold Christmas wreaths, had bake sales, paper drives, sponsored dances, and had concessions, and sponsored various other projects. But to get the kids together for these projects was practically impossible, but all came out okay. At the present we still have many things to look forward to, Junior-Senior Prom, Fad Day, Teach Day, Skip Day, our Senior Trip to Washington, D.C., the Junior-Senior Banquet. And then we will reach the goal for which we have striven for four years--graduation. May our future days be as happy as the days we have spent at good old Flat Rock High. Ye Old Historian Janet Britz C ass Prop ecy The senior class of '54 had graduated on June 17th, and now ten years later, we were all to meet at Flat Rock for our first reunion. As I walked down the main street on my way to the high school, I couldn't keep from noticing the changes that had taken place in Flat Rock in the last ten years. The town had grown so that one would hardly recog- nize it. I had a little time before the reunion was to start so I decided to look around and see if I could recall any familiar names or places. The first building that I came across was a large department store. The sign over the door read Briese's Dept. Store, owned and operated by Betty and Barbara Briese. On a smaller sign to the right of the door was a list of the sales personnel, the names of Jane Martin, Kay Bloomfield, and Betty Monske being among them. Across the street from the department store was the Gerald Pichan Sports Stadium, named after the famous Flat Rock athlete. There was to be a special program tonight. The world famous Brownstown Globe-Trotters, managed by Robin Cooke and Dick Van Dusen, were to play an exhibition game. The team consisted of such famous basketball players as Donna Simpson, Margaret Bain, Lois Lee Williams, Virginia Cerny, and Alice Schoen. A little farther down the street I came upon the Flat Rock radio station, station F.R.H.S. In front of the door was a large poster advertising one of their radio programs "John's Other Brother-in-Law,' star- ring that famous radio personality Glenna Dutton. The program was co-sponsored by the Acme Sweater Company, owned by Margaret Brillowsky and Carole Wagar, and Watson's Shoe Center owned by Louis Watson. On the corner of the next block was a newspaper stand, and as I stopped to buy a copy of the local paper I realized how much Flat Rock had grown, for what used to be a small weekly paper was now a daily paper with a circulation of over five thousand copies. On the newspaper staff were some very familiar names: Joanne Neifert, editor-in-chief, Robert Vaughen and Pat Bick, co-editorsg and Barbara Washburn, art editor. Besides these, the paper also had such famous columnists as Grace Younglove, with her advice to the love-lorng Judy Beer, the famous dramatic critic, and articles by such famous reporters as Ethel Yielding and Tom Griswold. The front page of the paper carried a story about Joyce Renaud, the world famous explorer, and her recent trip to darkest Africa where she had been searching for the Zsa-Zsa head hunters. On the next page was an ad from the Flat Rock Super Service Station owned and operated by Jerry Norrix, Bill Karoly, and Don Whisler. The next building that I came upon was a large office building, which I might add had been built by the Nelson Brown Construction Company. In the building were the offices of several of my former classmates: Norma Comfort, the world famous brain surgeon and her assistants Phyllis Swan and Helen Vaughen, and Leo Angleos, the great criminal lawyer had their offices on the first floor. On the next floor was the office of the Easy Sleep Mattress Company, Fraser Simpson president, and the K. and M. Dancing School, managed by Bill Kurtzals and Dick Morris. This is a very famous school for among its graduates are such famous celebrities as Carol Jenkins, Jeanene Tennier, and Carolyn Crooks. On the third floor is the office of Sally Sarver and Janet Behm song writers extra-ordinary whose latest song hit 'Men, Men, Men' is sweeping the country. Also in this building are the offices of those world famous detectives Howard Rowe and Joe Artley. I hear that they're trying to track down that famous international gambler Oscar Beckner. Well here is the school and there just ahead of me are Margaret Kenosian and Janet Britz, who the last Iknew were teaching in Detroit. I guess I'd better hurry if I don't want to be late and miss seeing all my fellow graduates again. By Gordon Parker 77V .9455 L-4: XX tvs, Q.. f X K' gi?

K ' s HIGH SCHOOL AT WORK ELEMENTARY AT WORK JoAnn Neifert---NEWSP APE R EDITOR NE TPAPER smfr Flat Rock High School has this year organized a news- paper. This school has not had a paper since l937. All the students have wanted the paper to start again, so on February l5, 1954 a meeting was held for all students who wished to work on a paper. At this first meeting we elected officers, decided to have a contest to name the paper, and decided when the first edition was to come out. The contest was held for one week, and over eighty names were submitted. The staff chose "Rockazette," after careful consideration. The papers first edition was to come out on March 4th, The staff co-operated nicely and worked hard to make the first edition a huge success. At the present time we are using the Ditto machine to print our paper. On Thursday morning the news room is full of action. If you ever come in this room you will probably see flying fingers typing the last page, people counting papers and others scurrying in and out getting supplies. As the clock approaches 'l'l:3O students get staplers ready, line up the papers and begin clipping them together. Deadline is 'l'l:45, so the whole staff is very busy. As the lunch hour bell rings our sales- men begin selling the paper. When the last few papers are sold, the staff can relax again, but that is only for a short time, because they must start again preparing for the next edition. l The newspaper staff hopes to purchase its own duplicat ing machine. This machine which is very much needed will help us make a bigger and better paper. lf the students next year, and the year after that like working on the paper as much as we did, we know that Flat Rock's "Rockazette," will always be a success.
