The Senior Class wishes to thank all of you citizens of our New Knoxville School District for your friendly reception and fine cooperation when we ap- proached you for contributions to help publish our 1952 Memoir. We also want to thank the business men of New Knoxville and surrounding communities for their additional help so that our yearbook has become a reality. The publica- tion of our 1952 Memoir has indeed been an educational and pleasant venture. We hope that in years to come our lives may reflect the appreciation of your school and community good will and spirit and that some day we may aid in providing the educational instruction and facilities which we have enjoyed in the past twelve years.

Our class opened the year with nine girls and ten boys. High school life seemed rather complex but we quickly adjusted ourselves as we took part in the many school activities. There were many musicians among our group. Nine members of our class joined the chorus and eight played in- struments in the band. Our class was also sports minded, being active in both baseball and basketball. Dorothy and Lois Sholler moved to Ywapakoneta during the year, reducing our class membership to seventeen. We began our sophomore year with fourteen members, losing Carl McCune, Valgene Phillips, and Virginia Rostorfer during the summer. The class roll had additional changes during the 1949-1950 school year. Don Prueter dropped out of school and Dorothy Keiber moved here from Dayton and became a member of our class. Our class again played an important part in the extracurricular activi- ties of our school. One of our girls, Marilyn Henkener, became a cheerleader. We entered the junior year with a total of fourteen members. We presented the Junior Class play, "Clementine", which was a great success. ln january we received our class rings, of which we are very proud. We also had the honor of presenting the junior-Senior Reception for the Class of 1951. Our class membership was again fourteen when we came back in the fall of 1951 as dignified seniors. Dorothy Keiber moved to St. Marys during the sum- mer. but Elaine Kuck moved to New Knoxville from XVisconsin and we were very happy to have her graduate with us. Our musicians made up an important part of the band and chorus. Four of our boys played on the baseball team, and three were on the varsity basketball team, all received letter sweaters. Marilyn completed her third year as a cheerleader. The Senior Class play, "Spring Fever", was a great success. We will long remember and cherish the week of May 11, 1952 as the beginning and end of our graduation exercises. 20 11,2 ,.,. ,, ,. ,,:5.-EE: r xg : .... f. : .,,,"i sz ,si Liberty Union: Band l, 23 Chorus 1, 23 Class Treasurer 25 G.A.A. l, 25 F.H.A. l, 25 F.H.A.

As we glide rapidly through space, our attention is attracted by a magnificent glass home in the very center of the metropolis of Shinbone. As the clock strikes eight, the shade rises, the bed automatically folds into the wall, and LOIS SCHROER steps on the escalator and slowly descends to the kitchen. Upon her arrival at the kitchen, she presses a panel of buttons, and immediately her breakfast is placed before her. She is preparing to leave for her position as Head Superintendent of "The Schroer Sanatorium". A short distance away, we see the homestead of the noted Heavyweight Wrestling Champion, JAMES MCCULLOUGH. Twenty-five years ago, this small-town boy left his home to embark upon a career in wrestling. Today he is known to millions as "Curly Kid McCullough". Suddenly to our amazement we encounter a gleaming rocket ship. It is operated by MARILYN HENKENER, a sales lady of sawdust products, made exclusively by a great lumber company. Through Marilyn's sales technique. sawdust products are rapidly becoming a part of every American home. From there, we proceed to Dayton, Ohio. Here we find our friend and classmate, ALLEN KUCK, who is practicing his career in veterinary medicine. His business is continually thriving because horses are again becoming prominent in this part of the country. In this city, we also meet NORMAN WIERWILLE, who tells us that he is now working as an orderly at a prominent hospital in Dayton. He is the one who is re- sponsible for this hospital being known as one of the cleanest in the country. In his sparetime, he spends many pleasant hours with his favorite nurse. As we continue on our journey, we soar above a Kentucky Army Hospital and see another of our former classmates, ALLEN VORDERMARK. Allen is recovering from a wound inflicted while on K.P. duty for which he received the purple spleen. As a renowned news commentator, he is awaiting his dis- charge so that he may return to his program, "Vordermark's Predictions of Things To Come", featured on television. Quickly, we guide our plane to Chicago, where we have a short visit with LEE KUHLMAN, owner of the largest chewing gum company in the world. He tells us of his new chewing gum, "Atom Apple", the only gum made with atomic energy. Upon our departure, Lee gives us samples for his teachers and friends, assuring us that it will give them added vim and vigor. As we stop for lunch in a Chicago restaurant, we pick up a newspaper and find a column written by Pouella Larsons, who is really our classmate, ELAINE KUCK. Her column, full of all the latest gossip, is read by people all over the country. As we turn the page, we see a large picture of the noted matador, HENRY TELLJOHANN. He is now working on his second million zigging and zagging the bulls of Mexico. We hope he does not zig when he should zag. From there we proceed to Hollywood, where we find RAMONA ESCHMEYER, photographer for "Modern Scream Magazine". Taking pictures of her friends during her high school days has greatly con- tributed to her success. Hollywood has it that LaBelle Eschmeyer's romance with Gregory Gable is on the rocks. We now find Ramona photographing FRANKLIN SAWMILLER, better known to us as "Doc". He can now be seen playing "Tarzan" in his new movie, "Tarzan and His Wife". Quietly, we enter the Louvure Theater, located in Paris, France. The lights are dim, a hush prevails over the audience. Slowly the curtain rises and soft lights flood the stage. The music begins and from the background, Madamoiselle CAROL SCHROER, the world famed ballet dancer pirouetts across the stage. She is greeted by tremendous applause. Her debut in France has ended with great success. As we make our return to New Knoxville, we see large bill boards procla'ming the appearance of MELBA HENSCHEN, a renowned colortura soprana of the Metropolitan Opera. She is scheduled to arrive at the New Knoxville Airport where a huge crowd is awaiting her return. New Knoxville has become famous the world over for its one and only law office. Since LEE ANN WALTERS moved in with her excellent debating ability and knowledge of law, all of the other law offices have been forced to close. And now as we stop and look back over our trip in search of our classmates, we find that we have enjoyed it very much and we are sure that all of them have made a great success in life. 28 lu n , , 5, , Y-A E IORS LEE ANN WALTERS NORMAN WIERXVILLE Band 1, 2, 3, 4g Chorus Basketball 1, ,2, 3, 4g 1, 2, 3, 49 Librarian 1, 2: Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4g F.F.A.

During the year we lost Harold Moellenkamp who found interests else-where. We received our class rings of which we are all very proud. The class decided on an entirely new design which is very beautiful. Our class presented a three-act play "Great Scotts" which was a great success. On May 9th we gave the Junior-Senior Reception in honor of the Senior class. It was greatly appreciated by the graduating class of 1952. Our class is well represented in basketball, band and chorus. We also have two cheerleaders in our class. OFFICERS Roger J.

Musser, enjoyed a successful fall season, winning eight games and dropping one. The graduation of three regulars left the Rangers inexperienced in several positions. Due to good weather conditions, which allowed for more games and practice, the Rangers improved steadily, and gained much valuable experience. Highlights of the season were Henkener's no hit, no run game against Cridersville, and the combination of good pitching and errorless fielding to defeat a strong St. Henry team. 64 VAR ITY BASEB LL 1951 FALL PLAYERS AVERAGES PLAYERS POS AB H BA FA Bill Henkener. . . . p 81 3b 29 11 379 920 Lee Kuhlman .... . . 2b 8: c 21 3 143 980 James Niemeyer. . . . lf 24 4 175 800 Allen Vordermark ss 28 9 321 947 Henry Telljohann ..... . . cf 26 5 193 400 Roger Bambauer . .. lb 21 4 190 902 Norman Wierwille .... . . c 11 l 091 936 John Schroer ..... ., 3b 84 p 25 6 240 882 Glenn Williams . . . . rf 16 5 187 800 Bill Beickman .... .. rf 16 3 187 833 Wayne Bambauer. .. cf 0 0 000 000 Lee Clausing ..... . . lb 4 0 000 1000 Larry Clausing . . . rf 1 1 1000 000 Dean Hoge .... rf 10 1 200 1000 SPRING BASEBALL The varsity baseball squad is anxiously looking forward to the spring season. With the return of the experienced veterans, the Rangers are looking forward to a successful season. Their immediate aim will be to ready themselves for the Auglaize County tournament. The Rangers won the tournament last year and hope to duplicate that feat again this spring. FRESHMEN BASEBALL PLAYERS The call for fall baseball practice was ansswered by eight ambitious freshmen. Four of them saw limited action in the fall of 1951. Continued practice has helped them considerably to improve themselves. Learning the rules and the finer points of the game may land them a spot on the varsity squad in the future. First rou-: fleft to right! Larry Clausing, john Hole, Lee Clausing, Dean Hoge.

The Rangers needed experience and teamwork early in the season and began to reach their peak about midseason. They were feared by all their opponents after up- setting a highly favored and undefeated Spencerville quintet, 64 to 63. A New Knoxville built up a five game winning streak just before the end of the season, defeating teams from Allen, Auglaize, Mercer and Shelby County. They were all set to end the season with an upset over highly favored Minster in the last regularly scheduled game and missed by only four points, 58 to 54, in a very well played game. LEAGUE SEASON ' The Rangers finished in third position in the Auglaize County League. New Knoxville lost to their perennial competitor, Minster, early in the season and to Cridersville in a very close game by three points. The Rangers had no trouble defeating the teams in the bottom half of the league and finished the season with three league victories and two defeats.

I 5 23 ll 478 115 7.66 AUGLAIZE COUNTY TOURNAMENT The Rangers drew an opening round bye in the Auglaize County Tournament. Their opening game was against Buckland who had defeated New Bremen. The Rangers played like champions against luckless Buckland and won their game 76 to 39. The fortunes of the Rangers changed in the final game of the tournament. Both Schrolucke and Kuck were out of the lineup because of an appendectomy and sprained ankle respectively, and the Rangers became the luck- less team, as they were outshot and outguarded by a much taller Minster quintet. The Rangers lost 70 to 47, but received the runners-up trophy, and also advanced to the Northwestern District Tournament at Celina. NORTHWE STERN DISTRICT TOURNAMENT The New Knoxville Rangers drew St. Henry for the opening game of the Northwestern District Tournament at Celina. St. Henry was the Mercer County Tournament Champion. The game was very close. The lead changed hands many times throughout the evening. The Rangers were leading by three points 16 to 13 at the end of the first quarter and held on to their slim margin of three points at the half, when the score was 30 to 27. It looked like the Rangers might get revenge for their one point loss to St. Henry in the opening game of the basket- ball season. The game was close and hotly contested throughout the third quarter. The Rangers held on to a two point lead when the quarter finished, 38 to 36. The final quarter continued to keep the fans on the edge of their seats until St. Henry forged ahead in the closing minutes, winning the game by one point, 50 to 49. This game ended the New Knoxville Ranger basketball season and the high school basket- ball career for the three graduating seniors. 69 L E ER E BASKETBALL First row: flefl to right!

The New Knoxville reserve team had difficulty finding a winning combination as players were shuffled back and forth all season. The squad included many freshmen who were inex- perienced and lacked the speed to compete with the teams of neighboring schools. The team finished the season with a record of eight wins and nine defeats. Many of these defeats came in the latter half of the season when members of the varsity squad playing on the reserve team were recalled. The reserve players received valuable experience, with the hope that they will gradually improve, and fill in the vacant spots created on the varsity by the graduating lettermen.

St. Rose eventually won the state the Northwestern District Tournament. In The Rangers lost to Lima St. Rose in the championship. This year also marked the end of the coaching career of V. E. Katterheinrich, who was baseball coach of the New Knoxville Rangers for fifteen years. It was Mr. Katterheinrich who revived the sport of baseball in the spring of 1937. During his period of tenure the New Knoxville Rangers won the County Championship eight times beginning in 1940 with six consecutive championships. The Rangers missed out in 1946 in the finals of an extra-inning game and again in 1947 by a score of 1 to 0. The Rangers came back with the championship in 1948, only to lose again for the next two years. In 1951 the Rangers won both the Auglaize County Championship trophy and the Northwestern District Runners-Up trophy. The Rangers played a total of 166 games during Coach Katterheinrich's career, winning 118 while losing only 48 for a percentage of 710. Highlights of Mr. Katterheinrich's fifteen years of coaching include the six consecutive Auglaize County Championships, playing against Ney in the second game of the 1943 District Tournament with Ned Gar- ver now star pitcher of the St. Louis Browns pitching against the Rangers, and playing Lima St. Rose in the finals of the Northwestern District Tournament in 1951. 72 A Gi ' ax . iff? :gf , ,it Taz? , V iii?
