In behalf of LOWER PICTURE: the annual staff, I would like to give my sincere thanks to all those persons who so willingly con- tributed pictures, write-ups, copy, and advice. The staff for this year was, left to right: Bob Swengel, business manager, Stan Albin, assistant editor g Bob McKibben, advertising manager, Marian Oakley, junior editor 3 Sandy Adkins, edi- tor and Violet Schoby, art editor. Making and putting together a school annual represents a lot of work. It is something that could never be done without the help of all those per- sons behind the scenes, those "unsung heroes," the reporters, the typists, photographers, and the fac- ulty members who lend their help in so many ways. These are the people who bring so many pleasant memories to you when many years have passed since your high school days.

JANITOR The janitor for this year is William Steger with Walter Odle as substitute. SECRETARY Our very capable secretary for the year was Gertrude Greeson, who hears eve1yone's trou- bles, gives good advice, and never looks per- turbed. She is a graduate of Eastern Illinois State junior College and of Sparks Business College, where she took a secretarial course. 1 i I , f hx 'E-I V f .-.f fi 'Uh rv . a .gf Q J - - ,K N , N-ws, Ng A K3 A XJ TOMAHAWK Hats Off to Our Board of Education One of the greatest honors and privileges a citi- zen of a community can have is to be elected to serve on the Board of Education. It is a job which offers nothing but long hours of work, a lot of criticism, and the satisfaction of knowing that he has had a part in handling the investments in the future of our community and nation, our children. To be a good board member one must be very calm, a good listener, to place the interest of the majority of the people and pupils in the unit ahead of the interest of a few and to be firm in all issues which will affect the unit as a whole, a great interest in the education of the people. The men who made up our Board have dis- played these qualities during the past two years in working out the plan for the building improve- ments of the unit. Rex Haskett, whose term expires in April, has served on the schoo1's board three years. The last term he was president. To Robert Woolery secre- tary, and to the other members, Clayton Doll, Carl Wilson, Charles Marshall, Glenn Albin, and Nathan Stewart, we extend our thanks for a job well done. In order that there will be a good rec- ord of the past year for the future, we offer the following record: l. May-Board voted for new building and re- modeling of old gym. 2. June-Paint inside and out of Trowbridge center. 3. August-Paint inside of Etna center. 4. August-Rebuilding of Junior High School rooms. 5. September-New gym started. 6. September-New heating plants in Etna center. 7. September-New stoker in old furnace- heat. 8. ,Ianuary-Fire escapes in Junior High room. 9. March-Rooms painted. 10. April-New gym completed. 11. May-Remodeling of old gym completed. 12. May--Fire escapes completed. 13. May-Open House. We, the staff, wish to take this opportunity, on behalf of the student body, to express our sincere appreciation to the Board of Education for the great accomplishment of the year. We have only one regret, we will not be here to take advantage of the new building and the remodeling of the old one. We are sure that there must have been times when you, as Board members wished that you could forget about some of the problems which have had to be solved. We also realize that your great interest in our school and its improvements has kept you on many long hours with a determi- nation to see the program completed regardless of praise and criticism. Student Council The Student Council has been active for only two years but it has made considerable progress in those two years. The purposes of the Student Council are to promote understanding and co- operation between the students and the faculty and to represent the student body in matters con- ceming student activities. The council's main "claim to fame" this year was the planning and supervision of the two and a half "mad days" in March that were appropriately designated as Work Days. During these days the whole school helped with Spring cleaning, painting rooms and refinishing desks. Several of the Student Council's activities this year have aroused the interest of other schools in this area.

At that time it was doubt- ful as to when the answers would be achieved. The Class of 1953 can just about give the correct an- swers to all of these questions because in the spring of 1952 the citizens of the community voted a S225,000 bond issue to be used in improving the physical facilities of the school so that today the question discussed in the 1951 Tomahawk can be answered. In 1951 and on through this year we have had to use the lower hall as a cafeteria and recreation room. In a short period of time we will be eating in a new, well lighted, and ventilated community room located on the second floor over the old gym. In 1951 the road around the building was too bad to travel. At the present time a. nice parking lot is being constructed in front of the new physi- cal education building which will do away with the road going around the building. In 1951 the old study hall had been made into two large rooms and one small one. The large ones were combinations of study hall and class room. In 1953 this area has been made into four Junior High class rooms with a library between the two grades. The high school study hall will soon be in the new community room. In 1951 there was little equipment in the science department. In 1953 much new equipment has been added including five microscopes. i In 1951 the old curtains to the stage were in a frightful condition. The classes of '52, '53, '54, '55, and '56 went together and bought a new curtain which was used in 1952 and will be used in the new stage in the physical education building. The new study hall will be the community room next to the library which has been moved and will be enlarged. In 1953 about 120 new books were added to the high school library. In 1951 the locker rooms were very crowded and dirty as they have been during most of 1953 but the new locker rooms are now in operation and that situation is cleared up. The Vocational Ag. department is now housed in a beautiful new room, with an office, laboratory, wash room and farm shop. Nothing like what wa.s used in 1951. A In the new building plan a room is set aside for the use of the Tomahawk, the Messenger and the Student Council. The competition between the music and science departments will soon be over. The music depart- ment is now located at the south end of the com- munity room with sound proof practice rooms. This will be a blessing for the science department which will have its lecture room back. The faculty will have a new room for relaxa- tion, provided they have the time. The new, beautiful physical education building is large enough to enable two P. E. classes to be conducted at the same time, and during the basketball season to seat about 1,100 persons. It seems like a long time and yet very few of the persons who helped write the material in 1951 thought that the changes they were suggesting would be completed by 1953. Where there is a will there is a way, and prog- ress will not be stopped, delayed' at times, but not stopped. 'We are anxious to see the changes that will take place in the next few years.

TOM1AH'A W.K ' Senior Class History t Q' In September, 1949, fifty-two green Freshies entered Neoga High School. We now have thirty- six, although allfgof them are not the same stu- dents that entered. Among the ones we have lost are: Bill Andres,"Davicl Badertscher, Neta Brown, Ruth Flood, Josie lHatten, Margaret Bueker, Berdina Clinton, fBetty Dent, Mary DeLong, Mari- lyn Horn, Doris Karch, Bob Mesnard, Nancy Russell, Marilyn Scott, Alice Wente, Karl Wente, and Norma White. The ones we have gained are: James Knox, John Knox, and Bill Thompson. The business of this senior year has been effi- ciently guided by Stanley Albin, president, Pat Wright, vice-president, Jeanie Walk, secretary- treasurer 5 Betty Floyd, reporter, Larry Sanders, parliamentarian. Mrs. Bell and Mr. Leming were our faculty sponsors. We have had many memorable activities in the past four years, the highlights being the Prom and the '52 Homecoming. The theme of the Prom was "Wishin'," while at the Homecoming we danced to "Silver Bells." ' The Homecoming King and Queen were Stan- ley Albin and jo Meyers. The attendants were Betty Floyd and Bob McKibben, first g Sandra Ad- kins and Bob Swengel, second 5 Barbara Stewart and Don Claybaugh, third, and Eloise Adkins and Norman Anderson, fourth. As Juniors we presented the mystery-comedy, SLTHE STRANGER IN THE NIGHT." As Seniors we gave UOUTWARD BOUND." The financing of the Tomahawk has been ac- complished by selling advertisements, the Senior class, play, the, Homecoming dance, magazine sales, an outdoor carnival, and a variety show. The Senior Class realizes that the experience gained in their four years at N. HIS., both social and educational, will aid them in the pursuit of their respective careers. Senior Class Will . . .

The conductor took our tickets and made us comfort- able for the long trip ahead. As we were survey- ing the passengers in our car two men entered and sat across from us. We stared at each other for a minute, then burst out with surprised laughter. It so happened that these men, DELBERT BELL and BILL THOMPSON, were returning from South America. We got into a big conversation with them and learned that they had just com- leted their second exploration of the Amazon in search of a Zoodo Beetle. Bill told us he was re- turning to his wife, the former ANITA JONES, and that "ol' Romeo" Deb was still a bachelor. During our conversation we reviewed our high school days and wondered what happened to our many classmates. They told us that their old buddies, the KNOX brothers, were still motatin'. had recently tak- en over Ken Grubb's position as manager of the Phillies. John was traveling with the "Lethal Blades Ice Hockey" team as one of their best players. The conductor brought us a newspaper and as we looked through it our attention turned to an article which stated that REGIS MCCLORY had just received a promotion from Major to Lieuten- ant Colonel. The promotion was awarded for his valiant heroism in combat with the 6,759th divi- sion in Kukalamunga. Looking at the headlines more closely, we noticed that the scientist men- tioned was DR. ROBERT "GREEK" SWENGEL. His newest discovery, "How to take a bath in a fur-lined tub without being tickled to death," was being publicized. We told Deb and Bill that BLANCHE WHITE was getting ready to make her third attempt at swimming the English Channel. Her old friend, RUTH BURTON, was her manager. We decided to watch television so we moved to the club car. The program just beginning was "DON CLAYBAUGH'S Night Club Review." As we watched his chorus girls we recognized four familiar faces. Looking closer we found these to be PAT WRIGHT, CLARICE GOAD, CAROL EVANS, AND DORTHY LANE. We leamed that Don was also making Johnnie Ray recordings as a pastime. The next program was "The Latest from Paris," a fashion show, headed by BETTY FLOYD. We recognized her top model as ELIZA- BETH GAMMILL. Looking through a Television Review Maga- zine we noticed a picture of DON BEALS. Of course, we read the paragraph about him and found that he was being honored for his new TV show featuring his wife JEAN GILBERT. Also catching our eye was the review of VIOLET SCHOBY'S and LAVONNA TRUE'S Cooking School. We were now half way home and transferred to an airplane. The stewardess looked familiar and turned out to be JEANIE WALK. She told us that we were flying in one of MARILYN LAW- RENCE'S planes. We learned that Marilyn grad- uated from the University of Illinois in Aviation Engineering and now had an airport near Neoga. Getting situated in the plane we discovered that the two gentlemen sitting in front of us were BOB MCKIBBEN and NEIL NICHOLS. Bob told us that he was returning from the Liar's Club con- vention. He was made president of the club after winning the Liar's contests two successive years. Neil was resting after his bout which proclaimed him Featherweight Boxing Champion of the VVorld. They told us that TONY SHEEHAN was now big wheel of the "Sheehan Lumber Co." NOR- MAN ANDERSON, now married to the former ELOISE ADKINS, was a manager of one of Tony's big branch offices in Etna.

EOL TOMAHQAWK Tuning in the radio we heani the familiar voice of CHARLES SCHUTTE as top comedian on Neoga's own station ZVTS. He took this posi- tion as a replacement for Jack Benny. Our plane landed and we were home at last! The Lawrence Airport was quite a change to the old Neoga we used to know. We had been told what a classy hotel LARRY SANDERS had, so we went there to be guests for the second week end. The bell boy who stepped forward to show us to our room was DON MEHL. After unpacking we went out to do some window shopping. When we got out on the street we noticed a man carrying a sign on his back that said: "Eat at Jo's." Getting closer to this person we recognized him as our successful businessman, STANLEY ALBIN. Talking to him we found that he was for JO MEYERS who owned the working "Greasy Spoon" down the street. We had a chat with Jo then continued on our journey. We passed a beauty parlor and saw a sign that was oH'ering a special rate on the new "Shingle Bob" hair cut. The operator was wearing this cut and turned out to be SHERRY WHITE. Catching our eye was a big neon sign - HEATON MOTOR SALES. We stepped up to see the display in the show window and saw the new "Super Sonic Heatonette" fone of BOB'S own creationsl. At the end of our tiring day we returned to the hotel and immediately visited the Beauty Salon to be refreshed. We instantly recognized BAR- BARA STEWART sitting in chair number 2. She told us that she was now head director of Physical Education in the Trowbridge Academy for girls. We glanced around the parlor and saw SAN- DRA ADKINS seated behind a desk. While talk- ing to her we learned that she had been cashier of this establishment for the past three years. Returning to our rooms to retire we recalled our experiences of the past forty-eight hours and both agreed that the Class of '53 was well on the way to success. TOMAHAWK JUNIORS SOPHOMORES FRESHMEN TT' V l i L E -5 TOMAHAWK Junior Class History Another year has passed for the Class of '54. This year has been a very active year for us.

LARRY "TINY" SANDERS One of those big boys you find hiding out some place. Larry proved to be a very important part of this year's ball tea.m. Despite his inexperience he copped the free throw shooting average and cap- tained the Indians. His leadership and rugged re- bounding were an important factor in the team's success this year. DELBERT "JINGLE" BELL The ruggedest 160 pounds of fight we've seen in ages. He never gave up and was a stalwart both defensively and offensively. Proving his worth early in the season against Cumberland, "Jingles" went in the game with a 24-point deficit and in one and a half quarters changed a rout into a mere 11-point defeat. BOB "GREEK" SWENGEL "Greek" has been the mainstay the past two years for Neoga. He played top ball all season and in several games played outstandingly to the tune of "honorable mention" "all state." Greek's versa- tility gave other teams a headache. He could play th posts, forward or guard, equally well and be- ing our tallest, 6-4, he was used to draw out the opponents' rebounding strength. Greek was beaten .15 of a per cent by Sanders for free-throw honors. He led the team in scoring with 311 points in 24 games. STAN ALBIN It was a sad day December 28, 1952, when we lost Stan for the rest of the season with a fractured skull. Sounds gruesome and it is when you realize that Stan had been our leading scorer in the previ- ous three games faverage 21 pointsj. Our season record was definitely affected by Stan's absence and we think he took the "no play" news like a true athlete and sportsman. REX LINDLEY A Junior forward converted to guard. As a Sophomore Rex was one of the first five and this year his past experience really paid off for Neoga. He was second high scorer with 309 points in 25 games. In one game Rex shot a sizzling 80 per cent and in another 75 per cent. His was the "nev- er die spirit," for some last minute baskets by this rugged technician put the Indians ahead at the sound of the horn. A lot will be on Rex's shoulders next year but we feel sure that we haven't seen anything where this Lindley boy's concerned. HAROLD PATRICK Our fighty mite who saved us upon losing Stan Albin. Pat jumped in with 23 points, then 21, then 18. My, what a buzz saw on fast break and against a man to man defense. The tougher the shooting the better he can hit. Pat was a very important cog on the team this year and we expect him to team with Lindley for a rugged season in '53-'54. BOB MCKIBBEN Bob was that guy who was needed for a few quick baskets or free throws. He started regular at the first of the season but it was soon proved that he worked better in a relief spot. His good re- bounding and corner shooting came in handy, especially in our last few games. DON "DUKE" CORDES Duke held down number seven spot this season. A deceptive ball handler and passer, Duke is try- ing to find his shooting eye and if he does, watch out for "razzle dazzle." DEAN WALK Sophomore forward, he played a lot of "B" team ball and toward the end of the season a lot of "A" team. Dean always landed in a close game and generally carried a responsibility of at least two free throws and a stall offense. His success as a game saver is pretty well established in the minds of the fans. CLARENCE "TOUGHY" SCHUTTE A Junior transfer from Sigel, Clarence showed a lot of promise in "B" team ball and his last minute tie score encolmters in "A" team games proved his merit as a ball player who'll give Neoga a great deal of strength next season. 1 DEB mmzrc PHT E-REEK, LFIPPI-4 5T'F-IFL X-' iff? -f-an ,. ....-... 1. ,inosi- REX DUTCH 'TUF-TP'-4 ......... - -- "ae TOMAHAWK "N" Club The "N" Club has completed its fourth year as an active organization of Neoga High School.

The reason is, you must win the letter "N" or the numeral which is given the freshman year. After this you are automatically in the organization. The officers that were chosen for this year are as follows: President-Stanley Albin. Vice-President-Rex Lindley. Secretary-Treasurer-Norman Anderson. Reporter-Larry Sanders.

Baseball The baseball season this year was not very suc- cessful as far as the won and lost record indicates. The Indians did not win a ball game this season, but with one or two positions taken care of this year we could give someone a rough time.

Band Every Memorial Day you ca.n hear a roll of the drums, the military cadence of the marching feet, and then you see the red and gray of the Neoga Band. You'l1 hear them again at Neoga Day in August, and all through the basketball sea- son. Then comes the high point of the season with their Concert Band appearance in the spring. This year at Spring Concert, the band played three good, snappy marches, "Bamum and Ba.iley's Favorite," "El Capitan," and "Golden Bear," also a concert march, "American Patrol? The audience liked the Gershwin selections from "Porgy and Bess" and "Ma1aguena." And we don't want to forget the novelty they presented, a modem ver- sion of "Little Red Riding Hood." These num- bers and many, many others made for a most suc- cessful season. 4? Q Q ai Q 1 7 E' Q 2, 5 - 45 H A 'Q' ll if f 2 1-I '17 ' 5 A 2, A A5 , Q 461-:'5?"S gi ff "" '7 A' '!J ,N .

This year the group pre- sented familiar Christmas music in a holiday con- cert and appeared on the Spring Concert with a group of Negro spirituals and American folk tunes. The season was closed with appearances during Commencement week. We bid our Seniors farewell and welcome next year's new chorus members. The boys' chorus division of the main chorus appeared on the Senior Variety Show. One of their favorites was a Spring Concert number, "Where the Blue of the Night." The girls' chorus section gave a rhythmic ren- dition of a spiritual, "Rocka Ma Soul."

Harmonic Dozen This group is a special honor group chosen from members of our main choral group. Their music is in a more popular vein than the other groups and is used for appearances at many community functions and for radio work. Two of their favor- ites were "The Gandy Dancers Ball" and a "South Pacific" selection, "There,s Nothin' Like a Dame." Two other numbers were also fun to work with, swing versions of "Comin' thru the Rye" and "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean." The Harmonic Dozen also worked under an alias-"Jughead and the Dirty Dozen Plus One." This doubtful group formed a Jug Band and tooted away on jugs and bottles to create a very unique though most popular effect. This group is to be commended because the main part of their hard work and rehearsing was during the noon period.

At 6:30, the In- dians again met the Dutchmen from T-Town in the Homecoming game with the Dutchmen taking another victory. At 10 o'clock the doors were opened to the 1953 Homecoming dance. The gym was decorated to the theme "Silver Bells." Blackwell's Orchestra, who played for the event, was placed in front of a white backdrop which held various colored Christ- mas balls and the silver letters of the theme. Sil- ver bells hung down from ropes stretched across the ceiling. Sprigs of cedar were placed at inter- vals around the gym and were interwoven in the white fence in front of the orchestra. The throne was also placed in front of a white backdrop cov- ered with Christmas balls and tinsel. At 11 o'c1ock Sue Morgan and Jim Wilson, Queen and King of 1951, crowned Jo Meyers and Stanley Albin, Queen and King of the 1952 Homecoming. First attendants to their majesties were Betty Floyd and Bob McKibben5 second at- tendants, Sandra Adkins and Bob Swengelg third attendants, Barbara Stewart and Don Claybanghg fourth attendants, Eloise Adkins and Norman An- derson. James David Mayhall and Dermis Albin carried the crowns on satin pillows. Connie Mettendorf and Carolyn Adkins carried baskets filled with rose petals which they scattered at their majesties' feet. The Homecoming is one of the highlights at N.H.S., sponsored by the Senior Class, and will always be remembered by all. FIRST HTTERURYLT ' 5 HH15 nnn quEEn.

Next year, with the experience that the 7th grade boys received this year, and the fact that we will be able to practice every day, there should be quite a difference in the success of our future teams.

CHEERLEADERS This year's Junior High cheerleaders held true to Neoga's standards and proved to have those same qualities which have always made our cheer- leaders outstanding, a lot of pep, a lot of rhythm, and good sportsmanship. They really did a fine job and in the future years as cheerleaders for the senior high squads they should be able to develop these skills to a point of perfection. lx :1YQEf- MGB- '! fl.
