These memories began on the warm Tuesday morning of September 8th, when 940 students thronged into a newly painted school building, some eagerly and some reluctantly. Now summer vacation was officially over, and a never to be forgotten year was under way. With the coming of the crisp fall weather, the gridiron heroes of M.H.S. made their appearance at Heinz Field; and another successful football season was brought to a close with the annual Homecoming celebration. Before anyone realized it, Christmas vacation was here again, and school was dismissed for two full weeks. Shortly after their return from vacation, Musky students found that school was in the second semester. Amid the flury of homework, part-time jobs, and other activities, students still found time to attend the Friday night Fun-Nites and other social events. Of course, students never complained when assemblies interrupted the regular routine of classes. The crowning highlight of the year was the winning of the coveted State Tournament by the Little Musky Basketball Squad. With the approach of Spring, 188 seniors turned their thoughts toward graduation and the all important future. ile of SEPTEMBER Administration and Faculty Custodians and Cooks Freshmen Freshman Senate OCTOBER Football Homecoming All School Play October Occasions NOVEMBER Sophomores Library Club Devotions DECEMBER Pi-Type Club Chorus Auroran Yearbook Auroran Newspaper Curia Regia December Doings JANUARY Basketball FEBRUARY Hiey Hi-Tri Juniors ontents Amicae Glee Club MARCH G.A.A.

Johnson has served as superintendent of Junior College, High School, Junior High School, and the seven elementary schools of Muscatine for seventeen years. Before taking over the position that he now holds, Mr. Johnson taught school and was also a coach, He taught social science, phys- ics, and biology. He took his under- graduate work at Morningside College, received his M.A. at the State Univer- sity of Iowa, and did his post-graduate work at Iowa State College. Mr. John- son's hobby is playing golf. PRINCIPAL Mr. Fred G. Messenger, our principal, has the responsibility of taking care of our large high school. This year there were about 980 students and 40 teach- ers under his guidance. He taught com- mercial subjects, social science, and was track coach for five years until 1930 when he took over his present position. He received his B.A. at Iowa Wesley- an. Mr. Messenger’s one time ambition was to become a doctor, but in time he decided to make Education his career. His favorite food is steak, and he is always ready for a good game of golf. Standing: Superintendent A. A. Johnson; Mrs. Corrine Marx, secretary. Seated: Mrs. Dorothy Toborg; Dr. Robert Asthalter; L. D. Krueger; George H. Jacobs, treasurer; Clifford E. Worst, president; Kenneth Schreurs; Robert Hahn, vice president. il of (eee ehor ayer ie Members of this committee and the departments they represent are: Seated: Mr. Mike Edie, commercial subjects; Miss Florence Hahn, home economics; Miss Eula Downer, mathematics; Mr. Mearl Wood, English. Standing: Mr. Gordon McLean, music; Mr. Jim Maas, science; Mr. Lindley Hoopes, vocational subjects, Chairman. Even though this is Mrs. Kuppe’s first year at M.H.S., I think most of us know her for her help- fulness. Mrs. Kuppe came to M.H.S. from Portland, Maine to replace Mrs. Ruthenburg. Among the varied duties of our secretary are keeping the permanent records up to date, making out the new schedules, and checking the dictaphone work. This year Dixie Lee Erkson was our student secretary. Dixie typed tests for various teachers and ran them off either on the ditto or mimeo- graph machine, took dictation, typed the morning bulletin, wrote admits, signed work permits, and ran the switchboard. () LCe The functions and duties of the office of M.H.S. are numerous. Mr. Ulum, boys dean, has charge of keeping attendance records and giving admits and excuses. In order to help the regular office staff, a number of girls from the study halls are trained to run the switch board, deliver telephone messages, file the excuses, and pick up the attendance slips from the classrooms. Any teachers who have letters to be typed may dictate them on the phone and then a commercial s tudent will transcribe the letter on one of the two new dictaphones in the office. A system has also been set up to take letters for businessmen down town. ery Tep ALLEN Biology Science JoHN Bairp Biology Mary BIELEFELD Home Economics JOHN BREADY History THOMAS BRUNER Algebra Economics Civics 10 acully Max COo_LLins Vocal Music Choral Groups EuLa DowNeER English Mathematics Dean of Girls EuGENE EDIE Commercial Coach Mitprep FoGARTY English EarL GANTENBEIN Physical Education Coach MH.

S. Two of our new teachers this year were Dorothy Marcue and Marjorie Hoff. mann who shared an apartment across the street from the high school. Here we see them sampling some of their home cooking. Tom Bruner caught John Bready just as he was leaving for home after a tiring day at M.H.S. If we could hear their conversation it might be that they were making plans to attend one of the big tournament games at Iowa City. Three teachers who make it a habit to eat together every noon are Eula Downer, Mildred Fogarty, and Hetty Kemble. No doubt they find this short social time a welcome break after a long morning of classes. iw acully | | Our Musky photographer caught the three home economics teachers; Evelyn Ls Schultz, Florence Hahn, and Mary i‘ | Bielefeld planning their spring outfits a with the aid of one of the new pattern books that are available in the home. making room. Charles Shook and Lindley Hoopes, who have been faculty members at M.H.S. for many years, have witnessed many distributions of the annual Au- RORAN. Here we find them looking through some of the old yearbooks. “This is Your Life, Jim Maas’’ was the theme of one of the pep assemblies for the football season. Participating in “Moose’s” past were John Bready, Fred Messenger, John Mc- Areavy, Lee Miller, Max Collins, and John Goudy. - Five people who help keep things running smoothly at our school are the custodians pictured above, glancing at their daily schedule. Left to right they are: Gertrude Steele, Bob Schmidt, Ernest Gullekson, Ralph Flake, and Harold Marx. This efficient staff has many duties which they perform every day; such as keeping halls clean, painting, emptying waste baskets, and cleaning class rooms. These custodians of M. H. S. have a job which requires more responsi- bility than most of us realize. (Gans e cleria Three familiar faces to students who eat in the M.H.S. cafeteria every noon are pictured at the lower left preparing for another busy noon time. Left to right they are: Mrs. Lila Hilde- brand, Mrs. ;,Martha Carlson, and Mrs. Alta Allen. Every day approximately 175 students are served in our cafeteria. Pictured at the lower right are two of the students who help out with the work in the cafeteria. Here we find George Long dipping ice cream, and Ed Ware drawing orange juice. oa eS Last fall as the freshmen came out of the auditorium with their class schedules, David Timm, president; and Eddie Ware, vice-president, tried to help Linda Schroeder, secre- tary-treasurer, find her first period class. Here are only three out of the two hundred and eighty-one students who found the first day of their high school life a little bit confusing.

Freshmen students at Muscatine High School were given a chance to use and observe parliamen- tary procedure first hand through the Freshmen Senate. This program was set up through the speech classes and has been very successful in giving the students a chance to put their knowl- edge of parliamentary procedure into use. When the Freshmen Senate met on April 13, 1954, there were thirteen community problems on the agenda. Pictured at the left are a group of students who authored these bills that were presented to the senate. Seated are: Marie Holtz and Marilyn Korte, Standing are: Snow Hilton, Dan Ross, and Jerry Devin.

Musky Express Takes Two To Tango vothall The Muskies started the 1953 season with twelve letter- men and three new transfer members which later proved to be very helpful to the Musky cause. The Muskies opened the season against the Roughriders of Cedar Rap- ids Roosevelt at Heinz Field. It seemed that in this game, Don Schmeltzer and Bernie Roth just could not be stopped on the ground. On the first score, Don carried from the two-yard line. The point after the touchdown was fum- bled; but just a little later, the Musky machine struck again. Beri Roth took the ball on the twenty-four-yard line and danced between left tackle and left end, broke into the clear and raced into paydirt. This time the point after was made and it gave the Muskies a decisive 13-0 victory. . . . The Muskies then traveled to Burlington to win a bruising battle in the rain and break a sixteen-year losing streak. It was the first time since 1937 that the Muskies had beaten the Greyhounds. The Muskies scored on a pass from Long to Schroeder, and they later scored again when Don Schmeltzer picked up a fumble and raced forty-four yards to paydirt. The Greyhounds scored only once to give the Muskies a 13-6 victory. . . Next on the Musky agenda were the Keokuk Chiefs at Keokuk. The Chiefs proved to be very strong as they rather easily ripped the Muskies 13-0, The following Fri- day was disastrous for the Muskies also. This time they traveled to Washington to meet the strong Demon team that was later to win the undisputed Little Six crown. Washington took the lead on a beautiful fake and a pass by their all-state quarterback, Doug Whitehead. The Muskies later scored but missed the point after a touch- down to give the Demons a close victory of 7-6. . . . The following Friday, the Muskies took the role of spoilers by snapping a Mt. Pleasant winning streak of 14 games at Heinz Field before a colorful Homecoming crowd. With one minute and 30 seconds left to play in the first half, the Panthers scored on a tricky play from scrimmage and it looked as though they would go to the dressing room at Al Stopped by Two Bulldogs 26 Piel the half leading 7-0, But George Long 's throwing arm had other things to say about this. In one minute and eleven seconds, he threw three quick passes to tally and make the score 7-6, Evidently, the last second touchdown in the first half gave the Muskies renewed spirit because they wasted no time in scoring another touchdown and going ahead in the ball game 12-7. They added a cushion for victory in the fourth quarter in the form of a touchdown pass from Long to Maeglin to make it 18-7 in the Muskies’ favor. ‘The Panthers scored in the final nine seconds to make the final score, Muscatine 18, Mt. Pleasant 14. A week later, the Muskies invaded Ft. Madison and made it two in a row by romping by the Bloodhounds, 20-7. Bernie Roth raced around right end ‘in the first quarter to put Muscatine out in front to stay. A few plays later, George Long inter- cepted a pass and raced to the eight-yard line setting up another Old Gold touchdown to make the score at half- time 14 to 0. That was the margin of victory, as in the second half both teams scored, making the final score 20-7 favoring the Maasmen. The Purple and Gold continued their winning ways by humiliating the Fairfield Trojans at Heinz Field 33-14. The Trojans, year in and year out a gridiron power in the Little Six, were the victim of an inspired Musky team de- termined to break the Fairfield jinx. Fleet-footed Al Hol- land ran rampant over the Fairfield charges, scoring three touchdowns himself and setting up another one. The final score 33-14, a tremendous Muscatine victory. Entering the final game with Ottumwa, the Muskies had a very impressive 5-2 record and a chance for a share of the Little Six crown. In a thrilling action packed game at Heinz Field, a game in which the lead changed three times in the first half, the Ottumwa Bulldogs outlasted the Muskies to win the verdict, 19-7. This game ended a thrill packed season for the Muskies, giving them a record Beauty and the Beast of five wins and three losses for a successful season.

The 1953 recipient of this trophy was Don Rogers, who is watching Jim point out the four traits that Don demonstrated to his teammates in order to have been selected by them for this honor, The four traits are sportsmanship, team spirit, courage, and per- severance. Each year the recipient has his name engraved on the trophy along with the names of Musky football greats selected for this honor since 1937. 29 omecoming For the past three years, one of the highlights of the school year has been the homecoming parade. This year, approximately fifty floats paraded the streets of Muscatine. These floats were decorated by the vari- ous departments and activities of Muscatine High School and Muscatine Junior College. About two weeks before, they start planning and working on their floats, They worked before and after school, during their study halls and in the evenings. On the day of the parade they are excused all afternoon to complete these floats. Many students think the homecoming parade has increased the school spirit to a higher level. 30 omecoming Of course, all the homecoming festivities point to a Musky victory in the annual homecoming football game. The Maasmen charged onto Heinz Field at 7:00 Friday evening with one single purpose... . to beat Mt. Pleasant! When the dust rose from the field after the grueling battle, the Muskies emerged the victors 18-14. Above, the cheerleaders clear a path through the enthusiastic crowd for the team. Har- lan Ziegenhorn took a partially blocked punt up the sidelines and ended up with a punt return of 15 yards. Some of the team members and the coaching staff, pictured at the left, seem well satisfied about the night's proceedings. ai omecoming The homecoming dance puts the finishing touches to our homecoming celebration. This year's homecoming queen, the candidates and their escorts are: Sue Shepard, Don Schmeltzer; Betty Scannell, Sid Stark; Jo Ann Worst, Bob Tanner; Linda Carlson, Doug Coder; Diane Fairbanks and Jim Misel. The queen of the festivities is crowned in the Jefferson gym after the homecoming game with Mount Pleasant. Each queen candidate rode in a convertible in the parade which was donated by Henderson's garage. As is the custom, last year’s queen, Delores Nordeen, placed the crown on this year’s queen, Jo Ann Worst. 32 Aieataonenesonsgasth ects geosntons The comedy ‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ was chosen to be the All School Play for this school year.

Morning Cae Every morning is started by the reading of devo- tions which consist of some passage of scripture and occasionally a little poem or thought for the day. It usually has a connection with the season of the year such as Christmas time or Easter. For many years Mrs, Marie Ruthenberg selected the scriptures, but now a booklet is printed by a com- mittee from various churches of different faiths. Following devotions Cynthia Timm, Sue Shep- hard, and Louis Ash take turns reading announce- ments for the day.

During the regular season the Muskies won 13 and lost only | in conference play. In noncon- ference play the Muskies won 3 and lost 2 dur- ing the regular season. With this marvelous record the Muskies won the Little Six crown. They opened this great season with 3 noncon- ference victories over Iowa City, Clinton, and St. Ambrose in succession. The Old Gold started on the road to their conference title by walloping Burlington. The Muskies then tra- veled to Ottumwa to meet. their first and only defeat in conference play, 61-51. The next op- ponent was the Washington Demons on Wash- ington's beautiful new floor. The Demons proved to be a very good contender for the con- ference crown as they gave the future titlists a run for the money, but the Muskies squeezed by them 62-60. After a thrilling game with Burlington on the Greyhound home floor in which the Muskies barely escaped, 48-45, the Muskies were hosts to the heralded Ottumwa Bulldogs. In this game the Muskies were out to get revenge. They trailed by a few points most of the game until the final stages when they pulled it out of the fire, 58-56, as a result of a tremendous comeback. With this victory they moved into first place in the conference, never to be moved out. After this, the Old Gold had very little trouble in the conference as they rolled on, beating Washington, Mt. Pleasant, Keokuk, Fairfield, and Ft. Madison by decisive margins. In the last half of season play they played two non-conference games meeting Clin- ton and Davenport, losing both games. au Scorekeeper, get your finger on the button Betcha Perk hits it first What goes up, must come down MUSKIESI eye eo IOWA CHIN a ea MUSKIESS en) BURLINGTON ae MUSKIE 95 ee ener OTELUMWAS S55 be The Muskies after winning the Little Six crown, moved into the district tournament against the Iowa City Littlke Hawks. The Muskies met them earlier this season and rather easily tore them apart 62-48. They proved to be just as tough in the tournament as they rolled by them this time, 56-40. With this victory, the Mus- kies moved into their first round sub-state game against Burlington. The Muskies had previously beaten the Greyhounds twice during the regular season and were up against the hardest task of all, beating a team three times in a row. Burling- ton came on strong during the first half displaying sharp shooting ability. At times they led by as much as 9 points, but the Mighty Muskies, as al- ways, came back strong in the second half to move into the finals of sub-state by defeating the Hounds 65-51. In the finals of the sub-state at Ottumwa the Muskies met the home-town Bull- dogs, who previously had downed Oskaloosa and Keokuk in the tournament. This turned out to be one of the most, if not the most exciting games of the season. The Muskies took an early lead but lost it before the first quarter was over. Ottumwa led until the final minutes of the second quarter when the Muskies went ahead but then lost it again before the half 40-36. But the “second half” Muskies come back with 7 straight points in the last half to take the lead which they held the rest of the game. Stylish ball-handling and good team- work led the Muskies past Ottumwa gaining a “Sweet Sixteen” berth, 77-65. 58 | | Huff scores against Slater MIUISKIES See ec LU Sy EE Rages ete tena MUSIK Se ees en 00 aL ERE OC ease 50) WIEISII Seay 5) OS COUNCIL BLUEES ABER UINGOLN Ts 162 For the first time in 9 years the Muskies gained a berth in the “Sweet Sixteen”. This was the first time since the Muskies got beat in the final game against Ames in 1945. In the first game the Mus- kies got paired against Slater, a class B school. The Old Gold entered the tourney with a record of 19 wins and 3 losses against Slater's record of 29 wins and 2 losses. In the game this better rec- ord of Slater proved nothing. They turned out to be no match for the Muskies as the Old Gold romped, 70-45. This victory moved them into the quarterfinals of the tournament against East Waterloo, coached by Murray Weir, a former “Little Musky.”’ This game turned out to be more of a ballgame than a runaway. It was a very close game all the way until the end of the third quar- ter. ‘The Muskies led the whole game by not more than 6 points until the 3rd period when they jumped to a 10 point lead. From then on it was just a matter of time and fouls. The Muskies ended up on the top of a 66-50 score. This placed the Muskies in the semi finals against Abe Lincoln of Council Bluffs, one of the tournament favorites. This game proved to be the toughest game of the tournament, but the Muskies pulled it out of the fire in the ‘‘old reliable” third period as they finish- ed with a 68-62 victory and a chance at winning the State Title. a7 Whushios in Esa OSes George up for 2 Hump’s jump shot OK, who did it?

The student committee was organized at M.H.S. with the idea of promoting good sportsmanship. Its purpose now is the start of a long range pro- gram, the final outcome of which will be student government. This group provided half time enter- tainment at one of the basketball games. During school hours members of this committee acted as hall monitors to discourage loitering in the halls in hopes that students would learn to assume more responsibility. Officers of this committee are Ray Gaddis, president; Dick White, vice president; and Jim Misel, secretary. Mr. Messenger is fac- ulty advisor. 78 oe ea eRe Poop pile A familiar scene for anyon e attending the tournament games was the parade of Musky Picketers with their odd hats and large signs who marched before each game. By the expression on Nancy Hahn, Janet Hahn, and Jo Ann Worst’s face any observer could tell who had just won the 1954 State Basketball Championship. The purple and gold carnation corsages for the cheer- leaders were courtesy of the J. E. Kranz Floral Shop. Ursula Grundman, our exchange student from Germany, spent the school year with Mary Lou Hahn and her parents; and Ma ry Lou became an ardent student of the German language. Janet Hendrickson shows Jo Ann Worst and Nada Fuller the directions to make sure they know how to give her a home permanent.
