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
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
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
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-

bel was elected president, Bill McGarry, vice-

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,
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-
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-
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.

"Exciting and excellingf' Those
are the words best fitted to describe
the life and times of this year's Jun-
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
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
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
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
This Junior Class of 1951 has set a
pace which will be hard to beat, their

"He that knows not and knows he knows
not . . . is a sophomore, teach him."
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
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.

In the fall, the Class of '52 elected Gale
Musselman as its president. 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
Sophomores also had an active part on the
Student Council with Daphine Jones and Jim
Carson serving on the students' governing

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-
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

Again we say, "watch this class!" A suc-
cessful future for these green members of
the Norfolk High student body is predicted
by the time they receive their diplomas in
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-
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

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

ln February the lowly freshmen joined the
ranks of great UD dramatists when they put
on a clever skit for one of the pep rallies.
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
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
freshmen at the picnic were their sponsors:
Miss Fay Gordon, Miss Mary Guendel, Miss
Ruth Schini, Miss Elaine Boney and Merton
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

setting the pace in G..-X..-X., F.F.A. and the
stage and make-up crews. They dirln't win
every game in football and basketball, but
there are several who should have a great
future in these sports.
Yes, 1949-50 has developed a fine class of
freshmen and the 183 members loom as pace
setters at Norfolk lligh in future years.

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-

four years of publication for the Panther,

At long last an objective has been accom-
plished, a dream has been realized. 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-
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.

The Norfolk High School Student Council
has had a busy year during 1949 and 1950.
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

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
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,

tween the students and faculty, and to
set a good example for inspiration of

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

tended a stage play in Omaha. Trips were
also made to Columbus, Fremont and Oma-

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-

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
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
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

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-
At the beginning of the year there were
only twelve members but later several new
students were tapped and initiated into the
club. Marlene Schmidt was elected presi-

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.

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
A Scene from "Jenny Kissed Me"
Strategy Board-Head Football Coach Gerry Ellyson diagrams
a play for his assistant coaches, Jerry Neely, Cleo Schroeder
and John Sherlock, and the Panther squad at an afternoon
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
LATE RALLY FALLS SHORT
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

TIGERS WIN IIOMECOMING TILT
A late bid fell short as Norfolk dropped a
13-7 contest to Hastings in the Panthers'
Homecoming game on Oct. 21. 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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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-

Moore, Dick Knudson, Coach Cleo Schroeder.
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-

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
Such events are made memorable for the
average high school student because of one
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.

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. Middle-distance run-
ners were headed by five vets: Ronnie
Burns, Lloyd Davis, Gene Eakes, Rex Men-
uey and Dick Swogger. Carrying the load
in the field events were Mickey Gray, Leon
Lauver and Harkrader.

Mary Johnson, Shirley Krause, Delores Cook, Marilyn Weihe, Gayle Palmer, Lois Frohloff, Jeanette
Gordon, Sylvia Johnson, Daphine Jones, Cherill Holmes, Shirley Korschgen.
Little publicity was accorded the activi-
ties of the G.A.A. members of Norfolk High,
however, under the leadership of Miss Ger-
trude Nolte, girls physical education in-
structor, the group had a very active year.
Twenty girls joined G.A.A. the first se-
mester, the largest number to ever enroll in
Norfolk High history, while 10 joined for an
extra class the second semester.
Heading the girls was Arlene Tomasek,
president, Violet Tews, vice-presidentg and
Marilyn Weihe, secretary.
Their fall activities opened with a Weiner
roast at Johnson's Park, followed by several
long hikes around the nearby countryside.
The sports season opened with softball and
touch football games at the city park.
During the winter they played volleyball,
meeting the junior high team and women
faculty team several times during the sea-
son. The trampoline was added to the G.A.A.
schedule and when the icy weather set in,
members enjoyed ice-skating at Ta-Ha-
During the late winter, basketball headed
their activities and they played the junior
high team several times. Pacing the senior
high girls were Arlene Tomasek and Violet
Tews. In the spring, softball, hikes, arch-
ery and parties headed the agenda.
Individual plaques were awarded to Violet
Tews and Arlene Tomasek, four-year letter
winners. Shields were awarded to Jeanette
Gordon, Daphine Jones, Cherrill Holmes,
Mary Jo Barnes, Sylvia Johnson, Marilyn
Weihe, Gayle Palmer, Delta Klug, Delores

late registration, will not receive awards.
