Tod Honlrmrigneel, and She' Y .109 gefi ,A449""' or the 5 fnony me chedule lceepabove ore Sok a for the year 1948, the class of '49 decided to sponsor the project this year. This was a huge responsibility for it not only en- tailed the gigantic task of raising S2,000, but the planning, writing, and photog- raphy needed to be blended together to achieve a smooth, complete picture history of the year. Money was raised for the PIONEER by selling magazine subscriptions for the Curtis Publishing Company and by giving the annual All-School Carnival on November 12. Advertising also made up a large percentage of the funds. The theme, the hundredth anniversary of the trek across Nebraska, was carried out on the division pages by pen sketches drawn by Jack McNeel. Under the very able supervision of Mrs. Florence Barta, the staff members worked together as a team. No task was too great, no time too limited, no responsibility too gigantic for these untiring, faithful workers. Early morning, noon, and night found them busy in the Pioneer office or on the street collect- ing ads or arranging for pictures to bring enioyment to the readers of this year's annual. Members of the staff are: Editor- in-Chief, Mary Hinrichs, Business Manager, Mary Ann Boerner, Art Editor, Jack McNeel, and Photographer, Bob Crates. Almost all of the Seniors and many underclassmen contributed to the completion of our 1949 PIONEER! ghe S hown .

Boys octette, girls octette, girls sextette and the mixed octette are chosen from this mass choir. The annual Christmas Vespers, Spring Concert, and The VOCGl Clif1iC, held under the direction of Mr. David Foltz of the University of Nebraska, were the outstand- ing events presented by the group during the past year. To help pay choir expenses, they sponsored four dime programs, which were offered to the school. Proceeds from the programs helped considerably in paying for new music and other minor expenses. The choir and its small groups also sang before many of the local and civic organizations upon their request. Besides talking a prominent part in various School activities, eqgh year they por- ticipated in the local and district music contest and regardless of the high competition, rated well among the best. Pictured above are the 1948-1949 choir officers. Jim Lightbody, Treasurerg Marilyn Baucke, Presidentg Jim Skinner, Secretary, and Bob Hoback, Vice President. Stanley Sipple and Marilyn Baucke are shown during one of the Dime Pro- grams which were given during the year. Swinging their way through all the catchy tunes were Barbara Grundman, Marilyn Engh, Marilyn Baucke, Wandeen Hirst, Sally Ross, and Norma Tritsch under the title of Girls Sextette.

Bfs. This society was formed in 1946, organizing the Wonderful Basses of the N. C. H. S. Choir, On one momentous day the basses created a trivial disturbance which brought on the extraordinary trial. After the verdict of "Gui1ty" was announced, the W. B.'s walked out. This first event which was followed by a strike is shown above.

The second annual Carnival for the T949 Pioneer was held on the night of Friday, Nov. 5, the proceeds amounted to 5200, which will be used to help finance the PIONEER. The highlight of entertainment was the Den of Horrors from which emerged many frightened patrons. The crowd also enjoyed the vaudeville acts, refreshments, and other concessions. The cooperation of both faculty and students made this carnival possible. Marilyn Baucke was honored at the Carnival during the coronation ceremony in which she was crowned "Queen of the Carnival" by Jack McNeal, one of the PIONEER editors. Runner-ups for Queen were Bobbie Grundman and Margie Roser.

Ray Bachman and his ten piece orchestra from Omaha furnished the dance music for 125 couples at the annual Junior-Senior Prom, Friday, May 7, in the Memorial Building. The colors, Chinese pink and iade green, were used to carry out the Chinese theme. The stage resembled a large Chinese temple with a gold buddha on either side of the door. Black steps covered with white gardenias led down from the temple. Silver Chinese symbols were mounted on the balcony which was covered with black paper. Above this was a canopy of Chinese pink, white, and jade green. Colored lanterns furnished the light. At nine o'clock Mary Donna Wier sounded the symbols which started the grand rnarch. Two other coolies held open the doors of the temple as Junior Class President Dayton Murphy and his partner, Maralee Helfer, led the procession followed by Curtis Conley, Senior Class President, accompanied by .lane Borcherding. - OZZIJU, CUZCE fit 'ff Max Kitzelman and his partner Barbara Westfall standing by the mammoth Christmas tree.

The Junior Class presented to the public for their approval "Night of January Sixteenth" in the Senior High Auditorium, November 19. This play was very unusual for a high school pro- duction in two Ways. The play was centered around the court room and all acts were parts of a trial. Another feature was the large cast with twenty-six members. Karen Andre tMary Ann Stoll? was on trial for murder. As each witness testified the plot thickened. A jury was selected from the audience. Opposing lawyers Flint 1Char1es Peterson? and Stevens fTad Hammondh provided much merriment during the questioning of the witnesses, especially when Mrs. John Hutchins 4Clara Greenrodl, a negress, and later Roberta Van Rensselaer tNorma Tritschm, a night club dancer, testified. The play was coached by Miss Marylouise Kennedy, aided by Stanley Sipple, student director. A large and enthusiastic audi- ence attended. Proceeds were used to finance the Junior-Senior Prom.

Many top honors and ratings have been won by Ne- braska City High School students under the very able supervision and direction of Miss Kennedy.

The 1948-49 Pioneer football team coached by Dale Harvey had the most successful season in Pioneer history. The gridiron players finished the season with a record of six wins, two losses. and one tie. The Purple and Gold eleven came out on top of the Southeast Conference with four wins and one tie in conference battles. The Pioneers were also rated as the fifth team in the state, Lanky Roger Stucken- holtz received the honor of being placed on the World-Herald's All-State class B team. Several other players received hon- orable mention. Coach Harvey's Pioneers were also the dominating factor of the All-Conference football team, picked by the coaches of the schools of the conference, by placing five members on the first team, four on the second, and two honorable mention. For the past eighteen years Nebraska City has consistently fallen to the all- mighty Falls City eleven. Our offensive was touched off when Murphy intercepted a short pass and ran eighty yards for a touchdown. From then on to the final gun it was all Neb. City. Those who made the trip to Falls City. last fall, experienced a much different story as the boys literally romped over our ancient foe of Conference Play. The situation looks bad for Pilmore as two Benson players close in fast for the tackle. .fam EQETUE LLQC - .

The Links could man- age only 11-2 quarter lead. and a 20-6 half-time margin amassing most of their points in the final stanza. Phil Hall paced the Links with nine points with Joe Good setting them up with his accurate pin-point passing, Jim Light- body was the spark plug of the Pioneer crew, scoring five counters.

The gun is first 'fired for the North- east meet and then in order for: Southeast Conference at Syracuse, Hastings College Invitational, Southeast Intramural, Peru Invitational, Southeast Conference, and the Beatrice Invitational.
