Down through the streets of town, led by cheerleaders Judy Mohrs, Joann Clemens, Barbara
Prusinski, Doris Novotny, and Gerry Kopko, comes the weaving line of about fifty enthusiastic
Hobart fans from the second homecoming pep rally in Brickie Bowl. Led by a police escort, the
fans shouted favorite cheers such as "Beat Merrillville."
Homecoming enthusiasm started with a pep rally
in Brickie Bowl and a snake dance through the
town. Plans were made for a bonfire, but were dis-
pensed with because of dry weather.
Weeks before the Homecoming game, the clas-
ses schemed, planned, and worked on their
displays. The seniors came out on top, making this
the second time for the class of '57. Displays were
iudged during a pep session the morning before
The colorful floats built by the iunior and senior
classes caused so much attention that a special
parade, including the Hobart High Marching Band,
was organized at noon. The sophomore and fresh-
man classes did not have floats because they could
get no one to drive them. Their displays were erect-
ed on each side of the scoreboard in the stadium.
The floats were also pulled around the track be-
fore the kick-off at the game for the Merrillville fans
to observe and as an extended welcome to the
Joann Clemens, junior, was crowned homecom-
ing Queen by Mayor Dennis Williams during the
Following the grand march at the dance, Joann
Y was presented with a white football, autographed
with the players' names.
The school spirit which was noticed from the
very first, continued through all the Homecoming
events to boost the Brickies in their seventh vic-
tory, beating Merrillville 55-14.
