In September of 1946, 139 green freshmen crept past the doors of NHS and gazed with awe down the long halls filled with bustling upper- classmen, and up at the serene statue of Abe Lincoln who seemed to rule the Lower Hall. They blundered into the wrong classes at the wrong times the first few weeks, but they soon became accustomed to the new routines. They chose for leaders the firs semester Dick Barger, president Charles Bugenhagen, viceJpresident' Vey Reineccius, secretaryg and Mari lyn Clark, treasurer. During the course of the year th debaters brought many laurels t their class through their outstandin performance. The second semeste elections brought Charles Gomon presidentg Bob Barnes, vice-presi dentg Marilyn Clark, secretaryg an Janet Burkhardt, treasurerg to th front as leaders of this class. As eager and hard-working fresh- men, they took part in debate meets, declam contests, sports and many other school activities. One of their most outstanding fields was music. Many joined the band and orchestra, choir and glee clubs and a girls' Triple Trio was organized which car- ried on all four years of their high school. The fall of 1947 found them back as ready sophomores. There was no stumbling around this year but a confidence which fits only an upper- lower classman. They tried hard to learn Caesar and struggled bravely through geometry under that super teacher Miss Walker. As sophs they capably lived up to their name of "wise fools" and joined in the hustle- bustle of school events. First se- mester officers were Bill McGarry, presidentg Clark Hoffman, vice-pres- identg M a r i l y n Clark, secretaryg Marla Harms, treasurer. ladies of Leisure -Marilyn Volk Susan McClelland, Joan Fuesler Shirley Ferris, Janet Burkhardt Marie McDuffee, Marilyn R i c e Joan Pflug. Nature Boys--Mel Freeman, Don Johnston, Perry Sirong, Bob Spaude, Tom Scheurich. Good Joke?-Jerry Harkrader, Jerry Vrzal, Virgil Baker, Kerwin O'Dey, Leon Lauver. At the close of the year the "silly sophs" were entertained royally by the frosh at a picnic at Ta-Ha-Zouka, as is the custom. Leading the sophs through the second semester were Dan Gimbel, president, Bill McGarry, vice-president, Marilyn Clark, secretary, and Janet Burkhardt, treasurer. When the junior year began they took up their duties as only lower-upper classmen do. There was the Hare and Hound race which, as is quite the custom, was given to the Senior Class. But of course they had the disadvantages of a cloudy night and a very high wind. The first semester Dan Gimbel was again chosen as presidentg Bill McGarry, vice- presidentg Marilyn Clark, secretary, and Janet Burkhardt as treasurer. Then there was the job of preparing the decorations, food, and entertainment for that memorable night, the Prom. After much de- bating the Prom committees and sponsors finally decided to use Showboat as their theme. Hard-working committees s p e n t hours, days, weeks, yes, even months plan- ning, building, making table decorations and practicing for entertainment. But when the big night was over everyone knew it had been worth the work and worry. Field Day was another fight for victory between the two upper classes but their superiors again came out victorious after a fierce battle with those never-say-die jun- iors. For the third consecutive time Dan Gim- bel was elected president, Bill McGarry, vice- Senior Smoothies-Marilyn Rahder, Grace Burkhardt, Mary Ternes, Frances Uecker, Sue Palmer, Elaine Perrigo. president, Marilyn Clark, secretary, and Janet Burkhardt, treasurer. Now they are mighty seniors, the upper- upper classmen of the school. First semes- ter officers were Bill McGarry, president, Charles Bugenhagen, vice-president, Mari- lyn Clark, secretary: and Pat Patterson, treasurer. Once again the time rolled around for the annual Hare and Hound Race. After care- ful and very secretive planning for a good hiding place the Hares set out to lose the Hounds. After running for what seemed like miles and miles Qand it almost wasj up and down hills, the seniors finally came to the designated hiding place. Then as a wel- come rest everyone plopped down on the ground and nervously awaited the end of the chase, before the juniors would find them. At the end of the tramp back to school there was a delicious lunch awaiting 250 tired and hungry students. In observance of the Christmas holidays Christmas Vespers was again presented at the city auditorium. This service held a special meaning for those seniors who knew it would be the last time that they would sing in such a program in high school. Second semester elections again brought Bill McGarry to the top as president while Fred Gakle was elected vice-president, Vey Reineccius was secretary and Jeanne Skill- stad, treasurer. This year's Prom was extra special as all the honored seniors had to do was spend hours dressing and then enjoy the evening with no thought of work, The evening was climaxed when three senior girls were pre- sented as Prom Queen and attendants. Sneak Day found the halls completely empty of the high and mighty seniors who had stolen away for the last meeting for their own class before graduation day ar- rived. On May 23, just before Commencement, Senior Day was held in which scholarships and honors were presented to the graduates and they in turn presented a program for the entire school. Then as the last strains of "Pomp and Circumstance" die away the Class of "5O" leaves NHS for the last time with mixed feelings of happiness, regret and triumph.

The class began its active year by electing class officers. Those selected to lead the class through the first semester were: Bob Raasch, presi- dent, Bob Nelson, vice president, Kay Mathews, secretaryg and Jean Steffen, treasurer. Trouble's A'Brewin' - Bob Raasch, Lonny Bottorff, Wayne Mavthes, Art Pendergast, Gordon Gakle, Jerry Musselman, Don Ennis, Ronnie Burns, Larry French. Boogie Woogie Concerio-Ruth Kellner, Nancy Hoile, Betty Wolske, Kay Weich, Pat Harmon, Jackie Mills, Gabby Girls-Marilyn Deibler, Lorraine Dieter, Shirle Spence, Kay Mathews, Phyllis Erb, Jean Steffen, Lor rayne Bricker, Maxine Froding. The Student Council, still in its infancy at N.ll.S., had its share of brains, beauty, and brawn, when the juniors sent Marilyn Deibler, Lor- raine Dieter, Ronnie Burns and Rex Menuey as their representatives. "Oh so near, and yet so far," could well have been the cry of the juniors after this year's traditional Ilare and Hound Race. As the final minutes of the race sped by, the junior scouts were only 250 yards from the hiding senior llZ11'6S. After they had vainly but enthusiastically climbed every barbed wire fence, and jumped every gulley in Madison County, for so it seemedl, the juniors plodded wearily back to the school gym where wel- comed refreshments were awaiting them. Y In mid-winter, production was started on the class play, "Jenny Kissed Me." The much-sought-after roles went to: Rex Menuey, George Schipporeit, Marilyn Deibler, JoAnn Peters, Noreen Alderman, Carol Weidner, Bonnie Solfermoser, Kay Mathews, Shirley Spence, Bob Haasch, Amy Brown, Nancy lloile, Maraleen Callies and Ronnie Burns. Student Directors Jean Steffen and Bill Christian were assisted by hard- working juniors who served on the various play committees, necessary for making the play a success. The first big taste of the lives of upperclassrnen was felt when the juniors put in orders for their class rings. The rings, those with the school seal on them, were ordered in the late fall and arrived at the end of the first semester. When the second semester rolled around, the following were elected to act as class officers: George Schip- poreit, president, Bob Nelson, vice president, Kay Mathews, secretary, and Jean Steffen, treasurer. Then in the spring there came that day of all days-Field Day-when all grudges were settled between the two upper classes. Distressed young gals were worrying how to get egg and tomato out of their eyes and hair. But why worry? It was no time until both were washed off by a dunking in the lagoon. The kids and their sponsors did have a good time however, even if the general atmos- phere was anything but party-like. Then all of a sudden, it was upon them. The night all had been waiting for. Their first prom. The fellas hid their excitement behind an air of nonchalance and indifference. The girls didn't try to hide their feelings. The excitement and expectancy they felt radiated from them. Best of all, the hugely successful banquet and prom turned out just as all had dreamed and planned. Serving as sponsors for the Class of '51 were: Miss Nadine Catron, Buford Grosscup, Miss Ruth Hell- man, Luther Heller and Miss Anna Moehring. Whether it was in athletics, music, cheerleading, dramatics, or any other of the numerous school activities, you could always find some energetic juniors out there giving their "all" for their class, their school, and their community. This Junior Class of 1951 has set a pace which will be hard to beat, their excelling ways and active school life, leave behind a challenge to all who follow them as juniors at N.H.S.

This year's sophomores-members of that bright and shining Class of '52-have rapid- ly proven that this part of the poem quoted above is not true. With that year of 'experience' as fresh- men under their belts, the sophomores read- ily entered into the spirit of Norfolk High School and took active part in the various extra-curricular organizations. Sophomores proved outstanding in Nor- folk's three major sports, football, basketball and track. There were members of the class in the choir, choralaires, band and orchestra, while others were excelling in debate and journalism. The clubs also drew their share of sophomores in their memberships. Membership in the service clubs, Minute Men and N'Ergettes, is a high disinction at Norfolk, and several sophomores were hon- ored by being active in these two groups. Minute Men included: Darrell Buettow, Jim Carson, Gerald Moore, Gale Musselman, Jack Putters and John Wisenstine. N'Ergettes included: Marlene Barritt, Cherrill Holmes, Daphine Jones, Margaret Weber, Marlene Tews and Shirley Keeney. Guiding the destinies of the sophomores were five very capable sponsors, Gerald Danskin, Miss Lillian Durkop, Edgar Hamm, Miss Gertrude Nolte and Kenneth Woolsey. These five faculty members took the class under their wings and aided them in holding elections, planning parties, etc. Drink It Dry-Jack Putters, Gail Musselman, Wally Walker, Mickey Gray, John Wisenstine, Jim Carson.

Other officers were: Dorothy Stevens, vice presidentg Shir- ley Keeney, secretaryg and Marlene Harritt, treasurer. Musselman was re-elected as head of the class at the mid-winter elections, while John Wisenstine was elected vice-pres- ident. Dorothy Stevens was chosen as sec- retary and Marlene Iiarritt was re-elected treasurer. Sophomores also had an active part on the Student Council with Daphine Jones and Jim Carson serving on the students' governing body. ln their studies, the sophomores excelled f?J in studying "A Tale of Two Cities" as well as Parliamentary Law. An added fea- ture to their classroom activities was a pup- pet show of Folklore characters, which proved very interesting and was well pre- sented. The juniors and seniors aren't the only ones in the limelight at the annual Junior- Senior Prom, for the dinner was served by members of the Sophomore Class. Each six weeks and at the close of each semester there were a large number of sophomores on the honor roll. The event that really wound up the school year for the class was the annual Freshman- Sophomore picnic. It was a big hit for all who attended and everyone claimed to have a lot of fun and plenty to eat. Now the members of the Class of '52 stands at the halfway mark in that climb towards the treasured diploma. It has been a long climb, and the next two years will be steep, but it won't be too long before we too are high and mighty seniors. Recently these sophomores were nonde- script freshmen-now check them over. You may not be able to recognize them immedi- ately, but in this group is a Sports King and Queen, Milestone Boy and Girl, llomecoming Queen, Honor Society members, football and basketball captains, and other leaders of Norfolk lligh School-all are assembled in this class, you'll see!

A suc- cessful future for these green members of the Norfolk High student body is predicted by the time they receive their diplomas in May, 1953. Just because some went to the gym when a convocation was called in the auditorium doesn't prove they can't learng and maybe the 301 study hall teachers did get tired of explaining that they couldn't have gym classes there. But . . . oh Well . . . experience is the best teacher. After a few hectic weeks of countless mis- takes, not to mention the faculty and upper- classmen, the freshmen soon got used to the new routine and settled down to business. By the end of the year, they had gained re- known in both class work and extra-curricu- lar activities. For the first semester they elected Pete Berge to lead them as president. Other offi- cers were: Dick Farner, vice-presidentg Ne- ola Clark, secretaryg and JoAnn Lenser, treasurer. This quartet did such a good job in leading their class that they were elected for a second semester. In addition to their class election, the freshmen selected their five representatives in each of the service organizations. First semester members of the N'Ergettes were: Janet Barry, Neola Clark, Mabel Lee, JoAnn Lenser and Joyce Scott.

Associate Minute Men members were: Gary Adams, Gary Gettman, John Butterfield, Dick Farner and Craig Swoboda. When the second semester rolled around there were several changes in the two serv- ice groups. N'Ergettes included: Janet Barry, Neola Clark, JoAnn Lenser, Bonnie Spence and Joy Wilson. Minute Men were: Don Benson, Pete Berge, Jim Dreyer, Gor- don Johnson and Lynn Johnson. Even if the Ninth Period Book statistics showed a large number of freshmen gracing the seats of 301 throughout the year, an equally large number of this class made the six weeks and semester honor rolls. This past year the freshman class was second only to the seniors with the largest number on the honor roll. Green Generals-Richard Farner, Jo Ann Lenser, Pete Berge, Neola Clark.

The skit, based on the story "Little Red Rid- ing Hood," kept the student body in an up- roar throughout the performance. Then of course, there were newcomers in school thought our pep rallies were 'pepper alleysg' and don't forget the freshman who hopefully put down 'vacuum cleaner' for a 36 collective noun. All of these added to the success of the class. This was the second year for Norfolk High to boast a Student Council and the freshman representatives were Janet llarry and Gordon Johnson. The annual Freshman-Sophomore picnic, held each spring, was judged a great success by all who attended. Keeping tab over the t 1 freshmen at the picnic were their sponsors: Miss Fay Gordon, Miss Mary Guendel, Miss Ruth Schini, Miss Elaine Boney and Merton Welch. Looking over the freshmen and their past year, outstanding debaters are among the group. Many members were active in the glee club choir and orchestra. Others were C !

This from Merton V. Welch, instrumental music instructor in Norfolk Public Schools for the past eight years. The band, led by drum major Rex Menuey, participated in all home football games, and took out-of-town trips to Lincoln and Madi- son. The band also led the parade which cli- maxed Norfolk's Hallowesta celebration, and participated in another parade for promotion of season football tickets. The following were selected by the band personnel to serve as band officers: Marian McClelland, managerg Vivian Meierhenry- Joanne Ruehter, librarians, Patty Brt-Joyce Johnson, secretaries, Harold Bussey-Jim Asmussen-Larry Hanson-Dennis O'B rien, property boys. There were two full time instrumental music men in the system this year. Merton Welch was assisted by James Johnson, for- merly of Scottsbluff, who taught in the grades and in junior high. The first step in the concert series came when Norfolk played host to the Nebraska Music Educators Clinic, which brought 800 student musicians and 250 educators to the three-day convention. Band representatives were: Noreen Alderman, Jim Asmussen, Bernie Braasch and Don Tarr. The Concert band's first appearance as a unit, was on December 21, when it presented a Christmas Concert for the high school student body and faculty. This concert was the initial concert ever given solely for the students. During the winter, a selected group from the concert band furnished the music at the pep rallies and basketball games. Student director of this pep band was Jim Asmus- sen. On February 28, the band presented its Winter Concert, under the direction of Mer- ton Welch and James Johnson. Featured in this concert were the band's cornet section and French horn section. In the spring two events completed the band's program for the year. First was the All-City band festival, with bands from Senior Iligh, Junior High, Junior College, Grade Schools and the American Legion.

Highlight of the orchestra's season was the annual Winter Concert. Featured on this year's program were the four first vio- linistsg Betty Plahn, Lorraine Dieter, Mari- lyn Hutton and Norma Bossard, who played Bohm's "Perpetual Motion." Hard work and love of music enabled the orchestra to live up to their standard of "top performance." ami. ...A-14 The Marching Band-Forms an "N" during a practice session at Norfolk's new Memorial Field. l Choralaires--ROW l: Helen Davis, Shirley Miller, Jeannine Gutzmann, Jackie Watland, Jo Ann Peters, Betty Plahn, Elaine Perrigo, Kay Mathews, Jean Steffen.

With the Junior High Treble Choir the Hi-Note Club gave a fine performance at the Christmas Vespers. The numbers they sang included: "Praise Ye the Lord," arranged by Oldsg "Gesu, Bambino," by Pietro Yong "Lullaby of the Christ Child," an old French Carolg "How Sweet the Bells of Christmas," by Gustav Klemmg and t'Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones," a 17th Cen- tury German. ln the Spring Concert they gave another fine showing as they sang many songs which blended with the theme "Music by Rodgers and Hammerstein."

Under the skillful direction of Eu- gene Yeager, the choir has worked hard and by this spring had accomplished a great deal. The first big event of 1949-50 for the choir was the annual State Music Clinic, which was held in Norfolk last fall, Nov. 17-19. Over 800 students came from all parts of Nebraska to take part in the clinic, either vocally or instrumentally, and to lend their talents to the concert which climaxed the three-day festivities. Fifteen members of the Norfolk choir took part in the 400-voice clinic choir, which was directed by Warner Imig, choral director of Colorado University.

The second red-letter day for the vocal group was Dec. 18th, when they joined with the Junior College choir, Hi-Note Club and the junior high choir to present the annual Christmas Vespers at the city auditorium. The program opened with the traditional candlelight processional after an introduc- tion by the junior high choir and the Hi- Note Club. Then the Junior College and high school choirs combined to sing Christ- mas selections from three different periods of musical history. A nativity scene was situated between the choirs on the stage. Another important event for the choir was the annual Albion Music Clinic, held Jan. 20-21. About 40 students from Norfolk's choir traveled to Albion both days to sing under the direction of Chester Francis, choral director at Oklahoma University. The girls' Triple Trio, made up of nine senior girls, also boast an active season. They sang for many clubs, churches and ra- dio programs during the year, as well as at high school convocations. With the exception of Jackie Stansberry, who replaced Marla Harms in her sopho- more year, all nine girls and their accompa- nist have been together throughout high school. The grand finale for all choral g1'oups at Norfolk lligh School came in the spring with the presentation of the Spring Concert. State Music Clinic- Nearly 800 high school students from all parts of Nebraska took part in The annual State Music Clinic, held in Norfolk on November l7-l9. Four hundred students formed the choir, which combined with band and orchestra students to present a concert the final night. Fourth Estate Heads-Jean Steffen and Pat Patterson discuss a recent issue of The Panther. The Panther "Where's the typing paper ?" "llow should I start this story '?" "Got any idea where Cliff is?" "No. lJon't tell me that story was due this morning." "What can I say in this editorial?" "How do you spell . . . " So went the conversations in lloom 313, the journalism lab of Norfolk lligh, as preparations for another issue of the Pan- ther got underway. For one hectic week each month there is no peace in the abode of the Fourth Estate. Then, after the copy has gone to press, the lab again becomes a scene for fun and merrimentg a place for heated arguments over tests, who took whom to the show, and why we should have won Friday's contest, the setting for Junior Class play practice, and even a music center as staff members presented their interpretation of such clas- sics as Hllaggmoppf' This spring marked the completion of four years of publication for the Panther, however. Norfolk has boasted a school pa- per for 33 years. In 1917 the Telital was first published-printed by the Daily News. In 1938 it became a mimeograph paper and remained such until 1946 when the Panther was started. Guiding the fortunes of this year's publi- cation was Pat Patterson, who also held that post the second semester last year. Help- ing her with editorials, headlines and page one was Jean Steffen, who served as as- sistant editor. The financial problems were handled by Marilyn Deibler, busines man- ager, and Lorraine Dieter, assistant business manager. For the second straight year, Don Tarr and Dan Gimbel turned out the sports page, while Lorrayne Bricker, Sue Pflug and Shirle Spence handled the feature writing. General reporting was handled by Noreen Alderman, Joan Calvert, Jeanne Skillstad and Janet Steffen. Serving as adviser for the paper was Luther Heller. N...-f 54 .

After months of planning, picture-taking and writ- ing, the 1950 Milestone has been completed. The 52nd issue of the Milestone is no longer a mystery behind the locked door of Room 313, but a reality. When school opened last September, Mari- lyn Clark was named editor of the Milestone, while Marilyn Hutton was selected as as- sistant editor. With Luther lleller, Mile- stone adviser, the girls spent long hours working on themes, covers, page plans, pic- tures and yearbook sales. Marilyn Deibler, business manager, and Lorraine Dieter, as- sistant business manager, handled the ad- vertising. Don Tarr, co-sports editor on the Panther, virtually made 313 a second home, since he also handled the position of sports editor on the Milestone. Feature writers for the an- nual included Noreen Alderman, Joan Cal- vert, Elaine Perrigo and Janet Steffen. By mid-October the plans for the Mile- stone were complete and later in the month over two-thirds of the pictures were taken. December marked the deadline for junior and senior portrait pictures and in January the rest of the pictures were taken. In January and early February the staff worked hard to make the copy deadlines and by Febr. 15 only the basketball resume and Planning Your Annual-Marilyn Hutton and Marilyn Clark discuss pictures and copy and planning the l950 Milestone. individual Writeups remained. Considerable work was done the second semester by mem- bers of the advanced journalism class, which assembled the index, copyread and proof- read. Undoubtedly the most informal class room in the building, the journalism lab was the scene of both hard work and fun. With the Milestone complete and the final edition of the Panther put to press, the members of the two staffs marked "thirty" to the year with a party.

Since the Council was just organized last year, it didn't really get a good start until this year when its fourteen members began their work by electing Charles Gomon as president. Dan Gimbel was chosen to assist him as vice-president. Lorraine Dieter took over the duties of the secretary and Janet Steffen remained treasurer for another year. The president appointed standing commit- tees for special functions of the councilg among these being the social activities com- mittee, the school history committee and the policy investigating committee. The council brought two speakers for con- vocations who were Norfolk High graduates. The first was Russell Caauwe, who told of Board of Awards-Dan Gimbel, Jeanne Skillstad, Mr. Fletcher, Mr. Skillstad, Dr. Burkhardt, Mr. Wodder, Bill McGarry. his trip to England. The second was Duane Sellin, who talked to the students about his visit in Finland. The council sponsored or delegated the sponsorship of all of the school dances, char- tered buses, and pep rallies. It assigned the job of sponsoring the Homecoming fes- tivities to the N'Ergettes and Minute Men. They themselves sponsored the Sports King and Queen crowning and dance afterwards. They had charge of the mixer held for the State Music Clinic members in November. They sold concessions to the musicians on a non-profit basis. In February, the Council held a reception for the faculty members and refreshments were served to the teachers. In response to some requests the Council investigated the school activity fund system and found out how the money is distributed. They posted a chart showing their discoveries. They discussed regulations for school dances and sent representatives to Dr. Burkhardt to make requests for the changing of some of the rules. They succeeded in receiving permission to in- vite alumni with high school dates. All the work of the Student Council was aimed toward achieving their pur- pose which is to promote school spirit, s C h o o l activities, understanding be- tween the students and faculty, and to set a good example for inspiration of the students. F.F.A. Learning To Do Doing To Learn Learning To Live Living To Serve That is the motto of the Future Farmers of America. Any boy who has taken one year of vo- cational agriculture and has invested S25 or more in a project may belong to this national organization. In it the basic principles of farming studied in vocational agricultural classes are applied to the individual projects. The Norfolk chapter of F.F.A., under the leadership of Edgar Hamm, vocational ag- riculture instructor, boasted 32 members this year. Of the group, 14 were freshmen "Greenbacks" initiated into the F.F.A. last fall. In October the fellows decorated a float for the annual Hallowesta parade in Norfolk and also attended the national plough con- test, held in West Point. During the winter the group organized a basketball team and met the Stanton High F.F.A. team in the "crucial" game of the year. F.F.A.

Tri-l-li-Y Only seven girls remained in the Tri-Hi-Y Club from last yearg however, with the ad- dition of new members in September and January, over 30 girls took part in the ac- tivities during the year. The club's program was exceptionally fine, including book reviews, addresses, as well as trips to Columbus and Fremont for Community Concert programs. Among the outstanding personalities the group saw were Conrad Thiebault and Alec Templeton. On Febr. 25 the second semester officers went to Omaha for a Tri-Hi-Y conference and later in the spring the entire club at- tended a stage play in Omaha. Trips were also made to Columbus, Fremont and Oma- ha for volleyball matches. The team won its share of games and a good time was al- ways had on the trips. They also got new suits this year. Then there were parties. In the fall the girls held a picnic at Ray's Park, with soft- ball highlighting the program. In October they held the annual Hallowe'en date party at Ta-Ha-Zouka Park, which featured the 'spookie rooml' The big dance of the year came with the annual Christmas party on Dec. 28 at the YMCA. The girls took their Tri-Hi-Y Volleyball Team dates to dinner, either at their own homes or to some restaurant, then to the 'Y' for the dance. The Tri-Hi-Y wheels for 1949-50 included: First semester-Joan Pflug, presidentg Jean Steffen, vice-presidentg Marilyn Deibler, secretaryg and Carol Weidner, treasurer.

Science Club One of the newest, if not the newest, or- ganizations in Norfolk High is the Science Club, which was formed by the science in- structors in late November and boasts 15 members. With ,'Live and Learn" as their symbol, these students are striving to improve their knowledge of science through p r o j e c t s. Each member must complete a project dur- ing the year to remain in the organization. Following the completion of a project, it is brought before the club for discussion. Each year Westinghouse offers a Science Talent Test for senior members of science clubs in high schools throughout the United States and scholarships are awarded the winners. Clark Hoffman served as president dur- ing the past year. Other officers included: Marilyn Hutton, secretary, and Ken Raschke, librarian. Sponsors were: Harvey Holcomb, James Manning, Niels Wodder and Ken Woolsey. Projectionists Club The Projectionists Club, this year under the direction of Kenneth Woolsey, visual ed- ucation instructor, was designed for the pur- pose of operating the audiovisual equipment for the high school teachers. The 21 members, two of whom were girls, also made plans for the organization of a Motion Picture Club in the future. This is the third year the club has been in existence at Norfolk High School. During the past year the club sponsored many activities, including films for the stu- dent body and a noon-hour program for stu- dents that have their noon meals at school. Also on the list were various social events for the club members. Officers of the Projectionists Club during the past year included: Charles Gomon, presidentg Everett Van Doren, vice-presi- dentg Don Tarr, secretary, and John Wisen- stine, treasurer.

Minute Men One of the most active boys' groups in Norfolk High this past year has been the Minute Men organization. The members wore the traditional maroon and white jackets proudly on the days of all games and did their share to promote spirit in the school. The major activities of the Minute Men included working at all athletic events, mak- ing money, boosting school spirit and spon- soring dances. One of the first things the boys' pep club did was to assist the N 'Ergettes in sponsor- Sophomores - Gerald Moore, Darrell Buerlow, Gale Mussel an Jim Carson. ing the Homecoming ceremonies and the dance following the Homecoming game. They ushered at all home football and bas- ketball games and were very busy working on the night of the dedication of the new Memorial Field. In October they handled a coat-and-hat check stand at the annual district teachers' convention, held at Norfolk High on Oct. 28-29. In November the boys sold maroon- and-white pencils, with basketball schedules printed on them, to the students and faculty members.

In the afternoon they put in a masterpiece in melodrama, "The Shooting of Dan McGrew." Following the victory over Fremont that night, the Minute Men spon- sored an all-school dance in the high school gymnasium. Charles Bugenhagen was elected to the position of presidency for the Minute Men during the first semester. He was assisted by Bob Barnes, vice-presidentg Harold Die- ter, secretaryg and Conner Abel, treasurer. In February the group elected their second semester officers, namely: Charles Gomon, presidentg Bob Raasch, vice-presidentg Con- ner Abel, secretary: G e o r g e Schipporeit, treasurerg Virgil Baker, sergeant-at-arms. N' Ergettes "We put the 'N' in energy" proved to be an appropriate motto for this year's N'Er- gettes. They were those vivacious girls run- ning around the halls in white skirts and maroon corduroy jackets on the days of any athletic events. The N'Ergettes are elected by their re- spective classes each semester. The group has seven seniors, seven juniors, five sopho- mores and five freshmen. The pep club was led by Janet Steffen during the first semester. Other officers included: Jackie Stansberry, vice-presidentg Lorraine Dieter, secretaryg Jeanne Skillstad, treasurerg and Marilyn Deibler, sergeant-at- arms.

The N'Ergettes participated in and spon- sored a great number of activities during the year, including ushering at games and con- ventions, putting on skits and holding dances and parties. One of the first activities of the N'Er- gettes was the sponsoring of the llomecom- ing ceremony along with the Minute Men. They also decorated the gym for the Home- coming Dance after the Hastings game. The group ushered at the annual district teachers' convention, held in Norfolk on Oct. 28-29. They worked at all football games and had an important role in assist- ing at the dedication of the new Memorial Field. In November they ushered at the concert put on by the students taking part in the State Music Clinic.

Debate debate between Nebraska and Illinois Unl- Resolved: That the President of the United States should be elected by the direct vote of the people. This was the subject debated by the mem- bers of Norfolk High's debate teams this past year. Under the guidance of Dean Graunke, debate coach, the squad had a very active year and posted many honors, both in team and individual competition. On Nov. 5 the squad took part in its first debate of the year, entering the Omaha Tech Invitational. Rex Menuey and Bob Raasch posted three wins in four debatesg Bob Hawes and Charles Gomon won two out of four roundsg while Mary Johnson and Craig Swoboda won one and dropped three matches. The following week-end, on Nov. 12, the debate squad attended a debate clinic held at the University of Nebraska. All mem- bers participated in a general discussion of the topic and later witnessed an exhibition versity teams. Norfolk debaters swung back into action at the Nebraska Wesleyan Invitational on Dec. '16-17 in Lincoln. Mary Johnson and Charles Gomon won four out of five rounds, while Craig Swoboda and Bob Hawes won two out of five contests. In this tourney, Gomon was the outstand- ing debater and was awarded a medal a n d scholarship to Nebraska Wesleyan. Hawes and Swoboda came within a point of besting the Missouri Valley Boys' champions of the previous year. Their initial competition of the second se- mester came with the Hastings College In- vitational on Febr. 10-11. At the contest Charles Gomon and Craig Swoboda, and Syl- via Johnson and Chuck Rossow, were rated as outstanding teams, while Gomon received the nomination of the outstanding speaker. Other trips included the Fine Arts Fes- tival at Lincoln, the NFL speech contests at Sioux City and Omaha, and the Sioux Falls Invitational.

Thespions As Tiny Tim raises his crutch with a cheery "God bless you every one!" the final curtain closes on the Thespian's presentation of Dicken's "Christmas Carol." The organi- zation presented the play just before Christ- mas vacation as one of their yearly projects. Four phases of dramatic work were car- ried out by the members in the production. They were acting, directing, stage-work and make-up. Members of the cast were chosen from any students in high school who wished to try out. Also in the cast were Elaine Danskin and Jimmy Marrow from the first grade at Lin- coln School. With Frances Uecker and Miss Hellman, the organization's sponsor, di- recting, the play proved to be a great suc- cess. At the beginning of the year there were only twelve members but later several new students were tapped and initiated into the club.

Upon organization the Thespians voted to be active this year instead of purely an hon- orary society. They also ordered silver pins and keys containing the National Thespian emblem. Throughout the year they studied different fields of dramatics and presented several productions, one of which was a one- act play for a pep rally. Two vitally important crews in the suc- cess of any play production are the hard- working stage and make-up crews. Marlene Schmidt is chairman of the make-up crew and has about sixteen girls h elpin g her. Clark Hoffman and Everett Van Doren head the crew of eight stage-hands. The make- up crew is responsible for seeing that the actors are made-up in character for the pro- duction. The stage-crew must put in many hours setting up the stage in preparation for a performance. They also have charge of lighting, curtains and radio broadcasts. 'Sei-Z! Junior Class Play Cast-Miss Hellmann, Jean Steffen, Bill Christian, Ronnie Burns, Bob Raasclw, George Schipporeit, Amy Brown, Carol Weidner, Marilyn Deibler, Rex Menuey, Maraleen Callies, Shirle Spence, Kay Mathews, Nancy Hoile, Noreen Alderman, Bonnie Solfermoser, JoAnn Peters. Junior Closs Plciy Comedy at its peak held the spotlight on Valentine's Day when the Junior Class pre- sented "Jenny Kissed Me," under the able direction of Miss Ruth Hellman. Rex Menuey starred in the lead role of Mr. Trobridge, a rector in his late middle years. Marilyn Deibler portrayed the part of Mrs. Deazy, Mr. Trobridge's housekeep- er. Jenny, played by Amy Brown, is Mrs. Deazy's niece from the country. Jenny comes to visit her aunt and Mr. Trobridge is very put out over having a 'jazzy flapper teenager' in his home. When Jenny becomes interested in Michael, a young educator who boards and rooms at the parish house, Mr. Trobridge decides to get Jenny married off to Owen, a callow type of youth. Thanks to the efforts of Mr. Trobridge, the triangle between Jenny and Michael, played by George Schipporeit, and Owen, played by Bob Raasch, becomes more and more involved. However, everything works out successfully for Jenny and Michael. Rounding out the rest of the cast were: Carol Weidner, Ronnie Burns, Noreen Alder- man, Bonnie Solfermoser, Kay Mathews, Shirle Spence, Nancy Hoile and Maraleen Callies.

From last year's record of two wins and six losses, the Panthers dropped to a black- looking total of one tie and seven defeats in 1949 gridiron warfare. The greatest feature of the Maroon-and- White gridders was that they played in spurts of halves. Outstanding perform- ances included the first half against Boys Town and the second half against Yankton. Highlighting the Panther season was the brilliant punting of Jerry Harkrader. He punted 1149 yards on 29 kicks for an aver- age of 39.6 yards per try. His best punt was for 60 yards. - Guiding the Panther gridders for the sec- ond year was Gerry Ellyson, while his as- sistants were Cleo Schroeder, John Sher- lock and Jerry Neely. Sh e rlo c k was in charge of the reserve squad, while Neely bossed the junior high eleven. ISLANDERS COP OPENER The season opened with a 19-0 loss to Grand Island on Sept. 16 at Grand Island. Sparked by Bud John, who tallied two touchdowns and passed to the third, the state champions started to roll late in the first period. John punched over from the one-yard line to climax a 30-yard drive as the period ended. A 40-yard march in the second period ended with John scoring from the four. Grand Island finished its scoring late in the fourth quarter on a four-yard pass from John to Smith. FREMONT WINS DEDICATION TILT Norfolk dedicated its new Memorial Field on Sept. 23 with impressive ceremonies and beautiful girlsg however, Fremont put a damper on the affair by taking home a 6-0 win. The Bengals tallied the game's only score late in the first period when Tucker raced 15 yards to paydirt on an end-around play. The touchdown was set up by one of 13 fumbles which marred the game. Two last period threats by Norfolk were nipped via penalties. LATE RALLY FALLS SHORT AT YANKTON Fighting a huge first-half lead at Yank- ton on Sept. 29, Norfolk struck twice in the final stanza to wind up on the short end of a 28-12 contest. Andrews was the big gun for the 1948 South Dakota state champions, scoring two touchdowns and passing for the other two. Andrews scored once in the first period, then guided his team to three more tallies in the second stanza. A fired-up club took the field the second half and started rolling late in the third. Bill M c G a r r y passed to Jerry Harkrader for the first score and Wally Walker sprinted 58 yards through the line for the second Panther touchdown. BOYS TOWN POWER TOO MUCH An inspired Norfolk eleven gave Boys Town the fight of the season during the see the Omahans' reserve the second half, 33-0, on The famous West Dodg- even terms during the only in the final minutes.

Ronnie Ilart plunged over from the one-yard line as the half ended and Bruce Edwards raced 55 yards off tackle in the third period for Hastings. Norfolk struck back in the final period on a 44-yard march with Harold Ker- ber scoring from the four. Jerry Harkrader added the point. Time ran out as Norfolk drove to the Tiger 19 in the final minute. DISCOVERERS GAIN 20-20 TIE Lady Luck was with Columbus as Nor- folk outplayed the host club, only to come up with a 20-20 tie on Oct. 28 in the final Eastern Big Ten game for both teams. The score was tied at each quarter. Norfolk tal- lied in the first on a two-yard plunge by Jerry Harkrader. Wally Walker scored late in the second period and Ilarkrader scored again on a two-yard plunge in the fourth. Harkrader and Harold Kerber each posted an extra point. In the final minutes with a 20-13 lead, lIark1'ader raced 80 yards on an intercepted pass, only to have a penalty nul- lify the score. The Discoverers then punched across the tying touchdown. HAIDERS POST 20-0 VICTORY Sioux City East's Black Raiders made it a bad Dad's Night for the Norfolk Panthers as the lowans went home on the long end of a 20-0 score on Nov. 4. East scored early in the second period after blocking a Nor- folk punt on the Panther 11. In the third period Dwaine Miller scored from the six- yard line and added his second score late in the fourth quarter on a short pass play. ROCKETS TAKE FINALE Lincoln Northeast duplicated Sioux City's feat on Nov. 11, posting a 20-0 win over the Panthers on the Capital City gridiron. A fumble set up the first Rocket score in the second period and straight power accounted for third and fourth period scores. The Panthers marched to the Northeast five late in the game before losing the ball on downs.

He especially liked the end-arounds and will be a leading candidate on next year's eleven. BOYD CHILDERS - A big boy, Boyd made the op- position back down more than once. His replace- ment will have to dig in and pull to plug up the holes like he did. GENE EAKES-Gene did a bang-up job at quarter- back when he was in the game. The seasoning he got in 1949 should make him outstanding next fall. DON ENNIS-Running from halfback, 'Pops' lo o k e d like a vet in his varsity appearances. A l t h 0 u g h light, he runs hard and is always alert. Watch him next year. MEL FREEMAN - Mel showed his s p e e d from halfback and turned into a fine pass-c a t c h e r.

G4 DAN GIMBEL - Returning to the sport after a year's forced absence, Dan won the starting center s p ot and played guard and line- backer on defense. He was also elected co-captain for 1949 and won the Granada award for his stellar play- ing. MICKEY GRAY-As a rug- ged tackle, Mickey can ex- pect to see considerable action the next two years. He's big and the football know-how he has accumu- lated will be an asset. JERRY HARKRADER- As a hard-running fullback and a stellar punter, Jerry was a vital cog in the Panther backfield. The college that gets him will have an outstanding play- er on its team. E H D D JOHNSON - A small, hard-hitting guard, Eddie will be missed next year. He showed considerable improvement as the sea- son progressed. AROLD KERBER - De- spite some early season difficulty, Harold bounced back to play an important role in late season games. A senior, he handled both halfback and fullback po- sitions equally well. UANE Kl'lSTlNG-- Duane was one of the reserve backs who saw consider- able action during the sea- son. He should be a val- uable asset next year. U5 LAWRICNCIC KOl'lLLl'IR-A second-string center, Law- rence lost some teeth in practice, but continued to show lots of fight.

He moved from nothing two years ago to a good player this year. GG first season on the team, Bill turned into a fine field general and put on a show of his own with his passing at Northeast. If he could have had more experience, he would have been one of the best in the conference.

NEIL MCDANIEL - 'Red' was always trying hard and managed to break into the scoring column con- stantly in reserve contests. Although he is light, a good future lies ahead for this fiery halfback. EOR NELSON - 'Peanuts' tried out at quarterback, but was shifted to the fullback slot, where he looked impressive. He will do a good job in handling Harkrader's vacancy next yea1'. RONNIE SANDERS - Out for the first time, Ronnie turned into a good guard. He liked the roughness of the game and added plenty of his own fight to it. CLIFF SCHOEI' - Cliff is one of the fine sophomores who gave a good account of himself this year and will be carrying a lot of the load in the line for the next two years. DICK SWOGGER - 'Sub' turned in his usual fine performance this year, his fourth on the varsity. As a leading pass-catcher, he will be greatly missed next year. John Sherlock and Cleo Schroeder tape ankles for Bill McGarry and Jerry Harkrader while Gerry Ellyson looks on WALLY WALKER - With two years still left, Wally promises to be one of Norfolk's "greats" in foot- ball. His brilliant running from the halfback spot was a highlight in every game this past season. He will be a great leader next year. LLOYD WERNER-A rough boy on the gridiron, Lloyd opened plenty of holes at the tackle slot. His ab- sence next autumn will put a big load on the boy who tries to replace him.

Bosketboll Norfolk High's 1949-50 basketball cam- paign shows a record of five wins against 10 defeats, however, these figures fail to tell the complete story of the past season. Nearly every contest found the Maroon- and-White cagers giving away a height ad- vantage, however, what they lacked in height they made up for in fight and spirit. Only once was the Panther quintet de- cisively beaten, by powerful Lincoln North- east, Neb1'aska's state champions in 1949 and 1950. Over the 15-game schedule, Coach Bu Grosscup's cagers were outscored by only 67 points, 494 to 561. With only two weeks of practice following football season, the Panthers had a cold opening night on Dec. 2, dropping a 30-17 contest to Yankton on the local court. The Dakotans jumped to an early lead and held a 20-6 halftime advantage. Bill McGarry hit six points to lead the Norfolk offensive. The following week-end found Norfolk hitting its winning stride, pasting Pierce, 38-30, on Dec. 9 at Pierce. Sparked by Bob Sullivan and Fred Gakle with 12 and 11 points, respectively, Norfolk rolled to a 23-10 halftime margin and was never in serious trouble.

Wayne's Blue Devils played host to Nor- folk on Dec. 10 and the Panthers turned in a near-perfect contest, chalking up a 40-22 win. Bill McGarry paced the Panthers with 11 points as they romped to an 18-11 lead at the intermission. Gene Eake's short shot with 10 seconds left gave Norfolk a 35-34 th riller over Creighton Prep on Dec. 16 at the city audi- torium. The contest was actually two games, Norfolk building up a 25-15 halftime lead, then Creighton Prep dominated the second half until the final seconds. Bill McGarry again headed Norfolk with 12 points. Northeast's defending state champs ended the three-game winning streak for Norfolk, handing the Panthers a 46-24 setback on Jan. 6 in Norfolk. Paced by all-state Paul Fredstrom's 26 points, Northeast rolled at will. The Rockets led by 23-10 at the half. tFred Gakle hit seven counters to pace Nor- olk. The top thriller on the local court came on Friday, Jan. 13th, when an underdog Fre- mont five fell before a late Norfolk rally, 47-44.

Bouncing back from the Grand Island loss, Norfolk dropped an overconfident York quintet in a 41-40 thriller on Febr. 4 at York. Bill McGarry hit 13 points as the Panthers pulled away from a 21-21 halftime to ice the game in the final two minutes. Failure to hit consistently at any time during the game resulted in a 40-25 setback for the Panthers at Beatrice on Febr. 10. The Orangemen grabbed an early lead and held a 24-13 halftime margin. Bill McGar- ry's nine points were high for Norfolk. A spirited second-half rally fell short as the Columbus Discoverers pulled a 39-35 de- cision out of the fire in an Eastern Big Ten game with Norfolk on Febr. 17 at Columbus. The winners held a 24-14 halftime margin, then Norfolk rallied to pull within 37-32 with two minutes left. Dick Swogger hit nine points to pace Norfolk. Pulling away in the final minutes of play, Lincoln Central's rangy quintet throttled a scrappy Norfolk five, 36-31, on F ebr. 24 at Lincoln. The Panthers made it a thriller for 28 minutes, enjoying an 11-11 tie at the quarter and trailing by only 18-'15 at the half. They trailed by 28-22 at the three- quarter mark, but pulled up to a 31-28 deficit with four minutes left. Bob Sullivan was high scorer with 10 points. After leading the touted Golden Vikings of Omaha North until early in the third period, Norfolk's defense fell apart and the Omahans pulled out with a 46-38 win on March 4 at Norfolk. Sparked by Bill Mc- Garry's 12 points, Norfolk rolled to a 22-14 halftime, then North caught fire and went into a 28-25 lead as the third period ended. The contest ended regular season play for Norfolk. The best game of the year was turned in by Norfolk in the opening round of the Class A district tournament at Grand Island, how- ever, Lady Luck frowned upon the Panthers in the dying seconds and Hastings came out on top in a 34-33 thriller. Norfolk played brilliant ball as the Maroon- and-White moved to a 6-5 margin at the quarter and held a 16-16 tie at the half. The Panthers moved to a 25-24 lead going into the final period. Trailing by 31-28, Nor- folk moved ahead on the shooting of Bob Sul- livan in the final minute, 33-32, only to have a substitute center hit a jump shot in the final 10 seconds for Hastings. Bill McGarry was the season's leading scorer for Norfolk with 115 points, while Bob Sullivan was runner-up with 90. Fred Gakle had 77, Dick Swogger hit 72 and Dick Barger had 36 to round out the top five. DICK BARGER-A senior, Dick played center on the first five during the latter part of the season and made an impressive showing in floor play and re- bounding. In addition to his fine defensive work, Dick poured in 36 points during the season. GENE EAKES-One of the tallest players on the team, Gene was on the starting five until sick- ness sidelined him mid-way in the season until the final game. A Junior, Gene will be counted on for his ability to hold down the big scorers next year. FRED GAKLE-Another senior is Fred, who wound up third in the individual scoring race at Norfolk. Besides being a lead- ing scorer, Fred was a rough man on defense. The Maroon- and-White will miss his all- around playing next year. VERLIN GLASS-Although Verly didn't start many contests this year, he did a fine job when he entered a contest. He made a good showing against Grand Island and with that type of playing he should be a leading candidate for a starting berth next year. GORDON JOHNSON - Gordy dropped in seven points and played good defensive ball be- fore a knee injury forced him to drop the sport after the third game. Only a freshman, Gor- don may develop into one of Norfolk's finest if his knee heals properly. NEIL MCDANIEL-Red was on the traveling squad and divided his time between varsity and reserve competition. He has gained much valuable experience that should be an asset next season. He makes up for his lack of height in spark and fire. BILL MCGARRY-A member of the starting five for the third straight year, Bill led the Pan- thers in the scoring department and was the outstanding spark plug of the team. His long shots kept Norfolk in the run- ning throughout the year and earned him all-Eastern Big Ten first team honors. He was elected co-captain by the team. JERRY MUSSELMAN- Another up-and-coming Junior is Jerry, a substitute who saw plenty of action during the year. He hit his peak at York when he sparked the Panthers to an up- set win over the Dukes. His height and shooting will be a big threat to opponents next year. WALLY ROBBINS - A transfer from Albion, Wally wound up his prep career wearing the Maroon-and-White. He played at all three positions and cap- tained the team in the Lincoln Central contest. BOB SULLIVAN - Making the starting five as a freshman was the honor attained by Sully, who showed considerable prom- ise as the season progressed. He hit his peak with 17 points against Hastings in the district tourney and will be a leader next year, DICK SWOGGER-A dependable and steady player, Sub poured in 72 points this season, his last for the Panthers. Sub was noted for his co1'ne1' shots and fine defensive rebounding. His place will be hard to fill next year. Sub was elected co-cap- tain of the team. WALLY WALKER - Showing a lot of promise through his speed and deception, Wally will un- doubtedly be a standout in his two remaining years at Nor- folk. He is a cool player and smart on both offense and de- fense. 'Unsung Heroes- Nortolk's student managers, Dan Gimbel, Bob Hawes and Gordon Johnson, check in equipment for the Panther cagers. g , Reserve Cagers-Dick Best, Pere Berge, Bob Nelson, Don Ennis, Dennis O'Brien, Gale Musselman, Duane Lenser, Mark McCoy, Neil Anderson, Don Benson, Gerald Moore, Dick Knudson, Coach Cleo Schroeder. Reserves Handicapped by a lack of height, the Nor- folk reserves made up for this with speed and fight as they battled their way through a winning basketball campaign. During the 1949-50 season, the Cubs posted five wins against two defeats, and both losses were by two-point margins. Norfolk's reserve cagers opened their sea- son by dropping a heartbreaking 18-16 de- cision to the Y a n k t o n reserves. They bounced back by drubbing Pierce's reserves, 211-8, and edged the Wayne reserves, 27-19. A powerful Leigh varsity rallied to cop a 25-23 thriller. The Cubs then wound up their season with three straight wins, stopping the Meadow Grove varsity, 25-18, Fremont's reserves, 22-213 and the Columbus reserves, 20-19.

Pep Clever and witty rallies at which every- one becomes hoarse trying to outyell his neighbors . . . Wacky skits that featured the 'talent' of Norfolk High . . . Game nights when students sat together, some with their 'one and only' . . . Others sitting by them- selves but watching 'their' heroes become 'our' heroes. Such events are made memorable for the average high school student because of one thing-pep! Heading the production line of pep at Norfolk High this year were the five cheer- leaders, along with the Minute Men and N'Ergettes. These morale builders held pep rallies prior to every football and basketball game, turned out en masse for all home games and chartered buses for several out- of-town contests. In the fall they held the annual Snake Dance and bon-fire, the night before the East game. When September rolled around, Jean Stef- fen was the only returning veteran cheer- leader. Marilyn Rahder had been elected by the students last spring, so these two girls formed the nucleus. Bob Tawney, Sue Pal- mer and Shirle Spence were elected by the student body prior to the Fremont game and these five carried on as Norfolk's Big Five in pep for 1949-50. Tawney was selected as head cheerleader and under his direction new yells were added to the pep programs. The pep band, under the direction of Merton Welch, played a val- uable part at all rallies and home games. This has been a great year for pep and with Jean and Shirle back next fall, another year of outstanding rallies is on tap. Yeah Team-Head Cheerleader Bob Tawney takes off during cheerleading practice. RoundIng out the quintet of cheerleaders are: Marilyn Rahder, Sue Palmer, Jean Steffen, Shirle Spence. Sprint Veterans-Coach Bu Gros scup discusses the take-off form in running the s rint 'th W I p s wi aly Walker, Virgil Baker, Duane Lenser, Mel Freeman. Hurdle Form-Ronnie Burns, Dick Swog- ger, Gene Eakes and Lloyd Davis watch while Coach Bu Grosscup checks Rex M f ' ' enuey or the proper form in hurdling. Truck As the Milestone went to press, Coach Bu Grosscup issued his first call for track can- didates. Norfolk's prospects for the 1950 cinder campaign were of the unknown quali- ty, however, with 12 major and minor let- termen back to spark a large squad, the Panther outlook was promising. Five veterans were back to carry the load in the sprint events, including: Virgil Baker, Mel Freeman, Jerry Harkrader, Duane Len- ser and Wally Walker.

AND BOY OF THE YEAR . . DON Homecoming Norfolk High School's fifth annual Homecoming celebration was held on Oct. 21, with the coronation ceremony high- lighting the halftime activities of the Nor- folk-Hastings game. The halftime ceremony began when the Norfolk band marched onto the field and formed a large "H" for Hastings, then a large "N" for Norfolk and played the school song. Then, while the band formed a large heart, the lights on the field were turned out and red hearts, handled by the Min- ute Men, appeared at each end of the field. The Queen and her attendants were then driven onto the field in two con- vertibles. Marilyn Clark, a senior, was revealed as Norfolk's 5th Homecoming Queen, while her attendants were Jeanne Skillstad and Janet Steffen. i , , Q Crowning Ceremonies - Football Coach Gerry Ellyson places the crown on Norfolk's i949 Home- coming Queen during the half- time ceremonies of the Panther- Tiger contest.

Miss Clark and her attendants were then intro- duced and crowned by Coach Gerry Ellyson. The Queen received a gift and a bouquet of red carna- tions from the students, while the attendants were presented smaller bouquets. The royalty was then driven around the field while the band played "Let Me Call You Sweetheart." Although Norfolk failed to win its Homecoming battle, the Panthers punched across one touch- down in the final period and were headed for an- other just before the game ended, 13-7, Hastings. After the contest, a dance was held in honor of the Queen for students and graduates at the high school gymnasium. Decorations included a large maroon crown and streamers from the ceil- ing. so Sporis Royahy-Marilyn Clark and Bill McGarry reigned as Sports Queen and King for i950 at Norfolk High.

The theme was well-presented in the decorations, arrangement of the dinner and dance, and the presentation of the Prom Queen. Officers of the Junior Class, under the direction of President George Schipporeit, headed the various commit- tees. Members of the Senior Class, faculty and school board were guests at the an- nual affair. Serving as waiters and wait- resses for the event were members of the Sophomore Class.
