HISTORY-CLASS OF I954 Tn September, 1950, sixty green, inexperienced and timid Freshmen entered the doors of Moore High School. Each memher was ucordiaffyn wef- comed hy upper cfassmen on initiation day. The hoys wore 1ong underwear, onions around their necks, marshmallows on their shoes and their hair in curfers. The girls fafso appropriately dressed, were clad in pajamas and housecoats and carried dolls. Their ffoat entry in the Homecoming Pa- rade was "Stack 'em, Stuff 'Em Tn, R011 'Em Over." The Freshmen entered the Annual Stunt Show with the stunt, UTic1cets Pfeaseu and ran away with the honors- third place. Shirley Wheeler and Jerry Rau were the Freshmen at- tendants to the King and Queen. The cfass of- ficers were: President, Rex Cragog Vice-President, Joan Leemong Secretary, Don Tayforg Treasurer, Don Goodaffg Student Council, Lois Walker. Miss Joy Ann Price was the cfass advisor. A party ended the school year. As Sophomores, another year was begun un- der the direction of Miss Joy Ann Price. "We 1'1aven't Finished This, But We Will Unity" was the title of the Sophomore float which pfaced second in the Homecoming Parade. Qur Sopho- more stunt, "Grandmother's Final Victoryf, didn,t do so well, as it pfaced fourth. Lois Walker and Rohert Reynolds were Miss and Mr. Sophomore. The class officers were: President, Carolyn Hieronymusg Vice-President, Shirley Vvheeferg Secretary, Jessie Mae Warren, Treasurer, Lois Wafkerg Student Council, Joan Leemon. A trip to Turkey Run, Indiana, ended the 1952 school year. The fan of 1952 proved to he the beginning of a husy year for the Juniors. After class elec- tions: President, Shirley Vvheeferg Vice-Presi- dent, Jerry Rau: Secretary, Doris Shaffer: Treas- urer, Carofyn Hieronymusg Student Council, Shirley Vvheefer and Arviffa Dawson, pfans he- gan to progress for the year's schedufe. "VVe're . . . Treasury of the familiar Expecting a Victoryu was the title of the Home- coming ffoat which copped second place honors. Through the ahfe assistance of the class advisors, Miss Catherine Carter and Mr. Paul Durbin, the 1952 Stunt Show proved to he a success. The Junior Stunt, "Acid and Old Lace", wasn't quite as good, as it took fourth pface. Joan Leemon and Don Tayfor were Miss and Mr. Junior. En- joyable dancing throughout the evening was pro- vided hy Bot: Normans Urchestra. On May 17, the Juniors presented the annual prom, "Gay Fiesta", for the Seniors. Todd Howard and his orchestra played for the dance foffowing the han- quet. The grand finafe for the 1954 Seniors hegan in Septemher, 1953. Qfficers elected were: Pres- ident, Don Tayforg Vice-President, Don Goodall: Secretary, Rex C1-ago: Treasurer, Dan Trenfdeg Student Council, Rex Crago, Shirley Wheeler, and Carofyn Hieronymus. Mr. Connolly and Mr. Smith very expertly guided us through another year of arguments, discussions and selections. Our class float for the Homecoming Parade was entitfed, "Hopping to Victoryn. Excitement arose again during Stunt Show Week. Popular vote proved Jessie Mae Warren, Queeng Dan Trenfde, Kingg Shirley Wheeler, Miss Senior and Jim Hammer, Mr. Senior. The stunt, H1V1cGi11yfuddy Writes Home", was our most enjoyahfe and most rewarding stunt throughout the four years-a first pface honor in our fast presentation. An early he- ginning and a good follow-through provided hy 'Miss Elaine Dickson, advisor, and many others resufted in the completion of OUR UWT. The haccafaureate address was hy Rev. Fred Harrold of the Christian Church. Commencement exer- cises were held on May 27, with Cari S. Winters, D.D., of the First Baptist Church of Gal: Park, 111inois, as speaker. His topic was "The Fine Art of Livingn-a most definite part of our memory.

The new Student Council tool: over for the last few weelcs of school and one of the first things the Council did was to elect Carolyn Hieronymus and Jerry Rau to attend the State Student Council Convention with Mr. Smith in Chicago. The next activity the new council sponsored was Student Control Day. A principal, assistant principal, and office secretary were elected from the Senior Class. The students taught all the classes during the day. During a meeting ol: general discussion a ques- tion was raised concerning the system of electing cheerleaders. A committee was appointed to meet with Miss Grosh and Mr. Smith to discuss various systems of election. The committee, with the ap- proval of the Council, decided to have high school cheerleaders elected each year. They were to he elected lay the Student Council representatives of classes, with a group of teachers, following a try- out which all attended. During the preceding spring, corrections, changes, and additions were made on the 1952-53 handhoolc. That summer the Student Council arranged, typed, and compiled the 1953-54 Stu- dent Handhooli. Following a general assemhly, each class was divided into sections and each rep- resentative in the Council lead a section in a dis- cussgim of the handhoolc. this year hy the Student Council. Talent and stunts from the freshmen students and teachers, talent from upper classmen, and games provided the evening,s entertainment. An activity that was new to the Council was that of choosing the Junior High cheerleaders. They were chosen hy the same system as the high school with the addition of the Seventh and Eighth Grade Council memhers and teachers.

This year the Future Farmers of America has been a very active organization. Under the leadership of their new adviser, Mr. Elliott, they completed many tasks. The EEA. has many projects. On the first and second of December the club took its annual trip to Chicago. While there, they went to the International Live Stock Show and visited the Chicago Stock Yards. They also went through the packing house of Swift and Company. The group has also done some work in judging. They went to Gakiey, Illinois, in the fall Where they won third place in a land judging contest. In February seven EEA. hoys attended a Grain and Poultry Judging Con- test at Vvarrenshurg, Iliinois. They won sixth place in poultry and ninth place in grain. Delmar Thom placed sixth in the top ten in individual judging. The hoys who went to judge poultry were: Phil Dolhert, Oris Miller, Jerry Rau and Mike Trenkle, and for the grain: Delmar Thom, Jim Reynolds and Larry Thomas. This year for the first time in some years the hoys picked up corn. The F.F.A. took half of the proceeds with the rest going to the farmer. This proved to he a profitahie project. The EEA. held a party for the F.H.A. chapter in March in return for the party the F.H.A. gave them in December. The Club is working very hard to improve its small shop area. The boys made many improvements, one important one being the painting and rearranging of the tools. They are hoping that a new shop will he huilt for them hy next year. cc 522 . . . give me 200 acres and a woman The Club has a chart in the agriculture class room which is heing used to lceep a record of each looy. When a boy has earned a certain numher of points required, he receives a letter award. The money-malcing projects for this year have been making and selling hog troughs and selling garden seeds. The money macle goes for use in the Chapter. The group has had a very prosperous and interesting year. F. F. .A.

The M Cluh is made up of hoys in high school who have won a major letter playing on the varsity team of a high school sport. The cluh has two main purposes it is trying to achieve: 1. To let the varsity team of every sport get together. 2. To promote and improve school spirit and sportsmanship in our high school. The hoys in the cluh were very active this year. They sold popcorn at all foothall and haslcetloall games that were played at home. As one of their first activities, the clula organized a volley-hall tournament for all the high school looys. They later sponsored a haslcethall tournament for looys especially those who didn't get to play on the high school team. The hoys used their money from selling popcorn to talce a trip to Chicago. They saw professional hoclcey and wrest- ling. The two coaches, lVlr. Jerry Slaclc and Mr. Leo Bray, went on the trip. The laoys also invited the government teacher, Mr. Duane Gronau, and Mr. Rex Minnie of Farmer City, who owns the popcorn machine the M Cluh used dur- ing the year. e572 OFFICERS President .................
