SCHOOL SECRETARY Donna Ellis M655 TOMAHAWK BOARD OF EDUCATION Our Board of Education is the group of men who set the policies of our school. To do this these men give their time freely in leaming the answers to numerous problems which must be solved if the schools are to function. They must have an understanding of the pur- pose, philosophy, and functions of the public schools 3 the methods and materials of modem education, the basic laws which govern the activi- ties of the school board, and an understanding of the economics of the school system. SEATED Qleft to righry: At the same time these men must take the com- munity pressure which is applied and at all times act in accordance with their best judgment. To all this they must have an open and inquiring mind, attempt to do that which is for the good of all children, and keep their minds free from bias or prejudice. We say thank you to our Board of Education for the fine work during the past year and for the new program to be put into operation in the near future. Glenn Albin, Carl Wilson, Robert Woolery. STANDING fleft to iighrp: Charles Marshall, Nathan Stewart, Clayton Doll, Rex Hasketr. STUDENT COUNCIL A new organization which was added to our school activities this year was the Student Coun- cil. The organization was in its infancy, so had to feel its way along this past year. The purpose of the Student Council is for more student government and for the fostering of a more democratic atmosphere in carrying on the program of the school. Mr. Curl and Mr. Voris served as advisors for this group during the past year. SEATED fleft to rightj: Mr. Voris, Betty Bar- rett, Bob Swengel, Lylah Schutte, Larry Green, Marilyn Lawrence, Mr. Curl. STANDING: Bob Wilson, Gary Freeland, Betty Kritz, Rex Lindley, Phyllis Oakley, jim Law- son, Bill Wilson. I v g T-O'MAl-IAWK FACILITIES In the 1951 Tomahawk two complete pages were used to show the need for better physical fa- cilities in our school. These pictures and written facts were so honestly and accurately presented that the voters of the community ,tiirculated a petition during April of 1952, requesting, the Board of Education of our unit to hold an elec- tion which would call for remodeling thelpresent plant and for adding .a new physiaal j education building. On Saturday, May 24, 1952, this propo- sition along with a request for the inoney to pay for such work was voted on by the voters-sand was passed. The proposed plans call for a complete voca- tional agricultural department in the present physical education roomg a cafeteria and music department over the farm shop. The cafeteria room will be used as a commu- nity room, a study hall, and as a general assembly TOOIIL A new physical education building will be built to the east of the present building. By using roll- away bleachers this room may be so divided as to conduct two classes at the same time, thus provid- ing opportunity for all to meet this requirement. By the building of these additions, more class- rooms will be made available to take care of pres- ent crowded rooms and will take care of the expected growth in school population during the years ahead. I These improvements will enable our school to provide the educational opportunities which our present and' future standard of living require. We, the Class of '52, are proud of the progress that has been rnade during the past year toward making ours a better school. We wish to com- mend all who helped make this project possible. We are glad that 'we, too, were able to have a small part in helping to meet the needs of our school through a new building program.

W have had many memorable activities during our past four years, the highlight of which was the Prom of '51, "Blue Hawaii." Also as juniors we presented "Maid from Alex- isoj' a three-act comedy.

As Seniors. we presented "For Pete'.v Sakef, a three-act comedy.

The senior class realizes the experiences gained in their four years at N.H.S., by social and educa- tional, will aid them in the pursuit of their re- spective careers. G Class flower: red rose.

H. S. appoints someone to go to the great fortune teller, Swami Riva, and ask him to peer ten years ahead and predict the future of the graduating class. This year, as your reporter waits breathlessly, type- writer in hand, the Swami bends over his crystal ball, goes into a trance, and sees . . . Juanita Ballinger at the "Little Theatre Off Time Square," working on her revival of the play, "When Mother Screams, She's Not Cranky." Shirley Dow as head of stenography at the Clark School of Better Business. Shirley Wright as head of the Foreign Department of the school, and Evelyn Snodgrass as school nurse. Jack McKibben and Don Kimery have gone to- gether and are billed as "The Deep Valley Boys." Joanne Bell and Joan Gilbert as co-owners of the "Zombie Theater," where the double feature, "Champagne for Caesar" and "The Big Hang- over," are now showing. Fern Morton as Golf Champion of 1965. She and Virginia Fuller have collaborated and have built a huge golf course in Los Angeles. Dave Casstevens and Jack Doll, owners of the "No-Crop Tomato Company," have added to their civic betterment program by building a new high school. Beverly Salzman has been hired as head librarian in the S500,000 library and Eloise Konrad as head of the language department. She is now working on her book, "Learn Spanish in Ten Easy Lessons-or Five Hard Ones." Betty Stuckey is modeling Pierre de Fume's gowns in Marshall Field's store. Max Gilbert is foreman in Ken Grubb's Worm Gear Division of the Peoria Caterpillar plant. Donette Ferris has been voted America's pin-up girl. She is president of the Lullaby Diaper Com- pany. George Shuemaker and Eileen Ingram Shue- maker are the No. 1 poets of America, having written such inspiring poems as, "He Slew His Parents So He Could Go to the Orphans' Picnic." The best selling book of the year, "The Low- down on the Upside-Down Cake" or "Turn It Over, It's just Burnt on the Bottom," was written by Shirley Stewart, who has her Master of Edu- cation degree in the fine art of cooking. After having unfortunate luck with his Here- lords, Jim Wilson is now raising Aberdeen Angus. He's also forming the Wilson Packing Company. Jim already has a contract to supply the beef for Hank Bray's troupe of Japanese wrestlers. John Chester Flood, president of the Chester- flood Cigarette Company, has hired Leroy Fox, the leading nose and throat specialist, to make ex- haustive tests on cigarettes. Judy Parker has given up her Fountain of Youth job 'cause she wasn't getting any younger. The Bob Wilson School of Brute Force is offer- ing to you, our dear readers, a set of biceps, a set of triceps, and the ability to wiggle your left ear, all for the amazing sum of 84.98. George Grube as Jerry Lewis's understudy. George is coming into his own since Jerry is re- tiring. Joanna Sue Morgan as a famous lion tamer in Larry Green's circus, and she has Larry almost tamed, too! Darletta Fosbinder has captured the hearts of millions on her singing tour abroad. She has also captured the heart of King Kamin Gandhi of Arabia, to whom she sang. "Diamond" Don Parker, the greatest promoter since Bamum, is now raffling off Brooklyn Bridge. Only five bucks a ticket. And now as Swami comes out of his trance and extends his hand murmuring in a deep romantic voice, "Cross me palm wit silver, Bub," we take a regretful leave of the great Swami Riva. THE END TOMAHAWK WX ' 1 xx. X E , ,A , JUNIURS SOPHOMORES FRESHMEN TOMAHAWK JUNIORS The "Class of '53" has progressed to its Junior year and has graduated from the sponsorship of Mr. Ledbetter and Mr. White to that of Mrs. Bell and Mr. Palmer. On November, 8 and 9, we presented in the high school gymnasium our play, "Stranger in the Night," a comedy-mystery in three acts. Our main attraction was the Junior-Senior Prom and Banquet which was held on May 8, 1952. The banquet was held from 7:30 to 9:00 P. M., in the Homernaking Room. Immediately following the banquet Gary Wilson's orchestra opened the Prom with the theme song, "Wishin'.', The decoration theme was "Wishin'." As a final notation the class wishes to thank its sponsors for timely advice and for putting up with a class that was determined to kill tradition and do things its own way.

Then with the guidance of our class sponsors, Mr. Grubb and Mr. Reiman, we chose our class offi- cers. President, Phyllis Oakley, Vice-President, Betty Barrett, Secretary, Shirley Deadmondg Treasurer, Jim Haskettg and Reporter, Diane Jones. Then approximately three weeks later on the sad day of October 5, the Freshmen were init- iated. When that day was over I'm sure we all felt we were full fledged members of Neoga High School. The green little freshies were made a real pretty bright red. Especially that night when Professor Marian Oakley popped up with some real super questions for us to solve, I think we all passed with flying colors. Throughout the course of the year the Fresh- men Class has become well acquainted with this new high school life and has joined in with most of the school activities and organizations. The future class of '55 wants to thank the fac- ulty for helping us through our first year of high school. ROW ONE Qleft to rightl- Advisors: Mr. Reiman and Mr. Grubb. Presi- dent, Phyllis Oakley.

On Sunday night they started out with a Christmas Concert which proved very successful. The following Wednesday led to the exciting basketball game with the Dutchmen taking anoth- er victory by just one point. On Friday evening the doors opened to the 1951 Homecoming Dance. The gym was dec- orated to the theme "Christmas Island." The or- chestra was placed in front of a large back drop which held a moon and the sparkling letters of our theme. Stars hung from the drop ceiling of blue and white. A Santa Claus in his canoe filled with packages and lighted Christmas tree in one comer completed the decorations. Once again at 10 P. M., Norma Barrett and Dick Grisham, Queen and King of 1950, crowned Sue Morgan and Jim Wilson, Queen and King of 1951. Attendants to their majesties were first, Donette Ferris, Larry Green, second, Betty Stuc- key, David Casstevensg third, Juanita Ballinger, Leroy Foxg fourth, Darletta Fosbinder, Jack Mc- Kibben. Little Judy Wilson and Jimmie Short carried the crowns on satin pillows. Linda Grisham and Mike Henry carried baskets of confetti and flow- ers to be dropped at the feet of their majesties. Jim Henderson's orchestra played for the main highlight sponsored by the senior class of 1952. This event will be well remembered by the class and all who attended. , 0 410- 'qN,r 'K HOMECOMING- 19 N I'-5 GPN as 0 W 11 ayne NEW' 'fo u 0 47-2. 4 e'Y,4G'XgL, 'Vi-J, NSE-Q JIFJU .W w"' -f 1- :-nu SUN ofwfa cnrxre-vefvs BE l'fY 5 I UCKE Y 2ND ATTtNDAN pun c.

TOMAHAWK OCTET The mixed octet is a special group chosen for voice blend. This group sings at various events both in school and community. All of their work this year included: District P.T.A., Presbyterian Men's Club, Lions Club Variety Show, County Teachers Meeting, Senior Class Play, Basketball Banquet, and Spring Concert. It is considered to be an honor to be chosen as a member of this group. The members of octet are: Soprano: Marian Oakley, Darletta Fosbinderg alto: Martha Kraft, Phyllis Oakley, tenor: Don Claybaugh, Bill Alex- ander, bass: Jim Wilson, Leroy Fox. BAND At last it happened after about 23 years with the same band uniforms we finally received some new ones. Most of the money needed to buy them was donated by interested citizens and communi- ty organizations. The school board made the down payment and the band members made their con- tribution by having a Hobo Day. The jacket is red, trimmed with gold buttons and braidg white webbed marine belt 3 grey trou- sers with a red stripe 5 grey visored military cap with red braid. We have six-inch red feather plumes which we wear on special dress occasions. The picture was taken on the night of April 27, 1951, the first time the new uniforms were worn. Each appearance finds the band members proud of the uniform they wear, and we hope future stu- dents will feel the same pride at being privileged to wear the school colors in a military cut.

This was Dave's first season on the varsity. He played both for- ward and guard positions to take advantage of scoring ability. He was voted the most valuable Senior on the squad. JIM WILSON, Senior. Jim was the quickest man on the team and also an accurate shot al- though he concentrated mainly on ball handling. Jim was elected honorary captain of the team. HENRY BRAY, Senior. "Hank" joined the squad in mid-season. His rebounding skill, fight, and his constant chatter served to stimulate the team to better play. BOB SWENGEL, Junior. This was "Greek's" third year of varsity play. He led the squad in goals and free throws and with this rough season- ing and experience Neoga's hopes for a big season in '52-'53 rest squarely on his shoulders. STAN ALBIN, Junior. The workhorse of the team. A bright prospect who had to gain experi- ence the hard way. Stan probably averaged a game and one-half against each competitor. This paid off in Stan gaining confidence and expert- ness. The last few games showed a marked im- provement in his rebounding and shooting. REX LINDLEY, Sophomore. Rex was the only- Sophomore letterman and he showed great prom- ise all season. Rex was always there in the clutches and proved to be our brightest prospect for an all- around player. He held down the regular forward position all season. BOB MCKIBBEN, Junior. Bob played "B" team and considerable varsity. His uncanny shoot- ing in one or two games makes us hope he'll be a consistent threat next season. DELBERT BELL, Junior. Aggressiveness and love of the game always makes Delbert a. con- tender. Finishing off in fundamentals should make him a tough customer. HAROLD PATRICK, Sophomore. Another Sophomore who has his sights on the starting five in '52-'53. He's aggressive, and has no fearg this combined with greatly improved skill should make one guard position put up a "sold out" sign. DON CORDES, Sophomore. The "Duke" is that natural who throws the ball and for some un- explained reason it goes in. "Duke" came along the fastest of any prospect this season and it's a cinch he'l be seen a lot next season.
