Under them, our high school career was brought to a successful close. Under the capable leadership of our Freshman officers, Dean Zellar, Darlene Clark, Norma Miller, and Wanda Rhoades, we started out our high school life with the Freshman Mixer held on October 9, 1848. The enthu- siasm which has made our class one that will be long remembered at S.H.S. was shown by the large attendance of the members to our first "high school party." Our freshman year ended on a gay note with the Freshman picnic held at Sinnissippi Park in June. The occasion was a happy one for all of us as we had finished our "pro- bation period" as freshmen and looked forward to the next year when, as Sophomores, we could take a more active part in the life at S.H.S. Don Knight, Nancy Kunde, Beth Myers, and George Schneider directed our class our Sophomore year. The "Soapbox Serenade" was another successful activity sponsored by the class of '52, This was the first all- school dance given by us, and again we showed our ability to work together as one group to produce a well- organized project. Six members of the class were inducted into the Na- tional Honor Society the last semester of our Junior year. The Junior-Senior Prom, "An Enchanted Eve- ning," was the highlight of the year. The theme was fairyland, and everyone really seemed to have an en- chfnted evening. During this year our class was led by Bob Smith, Karl Kilberg, Wallie Pepper, and Jeannie Sterenberg. eniofzs Bvisofzs Miss Doris Burritt and Miss Ruth Welle 4167 Olgficefzs Left to right: John Walton, President, Lyle Dirks, Treasurer, Barry Musgrove, Vice- President: Arlene Book, Secretary. Our Senior year has been a busy and exciting one. December 16th was set aside as Senior Recognition Day. We all wore our best clothes and were given a pin in the shape of a mortarboard and scroll. In the after- noon, we Seniors gave an assembly depicting all of the activities of our high school career. In the evening a special section was set aside for us at the basketball game, and following the game a dance for Seniors only was held in the girls' gym. Several members of our class were inducted into the National Honor Society which showed that we, as a group, not only think of social life, but also believe that school work is important. The annual Senior picnic held in the latter part of May closed the door to our high school life, but as we look back, we cannot help but remember that along with the fun there has gone a lot of hard work. The class of 1952 has excelled in many different school activities, including band, choir, debate, the Script, and, of course, we have added our share of athletes to the various athletic programs. While looking back at our Senior year, we realize that we owe a vote of thanks to .lohn Walton, Barry Mus- grove, Lyle Dirks, and Arlene Book for the splendid leadership they have shown in directing the activities of our last year at S.H.S. 4177 118 JEAN ALLEN Band: GAA: Jr. Red Cross: Campus Club: Latin Club: Prom.

The Prom, as everyone at S.H.S. knows, is the biggest social event of the year. The Juniors were kept busy working on decorations, programs, publicity, etc., for this exciting night. But even with all the hustle and bustle of working on the Prom, there were still some Juniors who found time to be outstanding in other activities, such as athletics, vocal and instrumental music, dramatics, and various clubs. The Juniors built up their treasury funds by selling candy during fifth period lunch hour and after school. The officers who led this class were: Leone Wolber, Ken Kraft, Billie Huenzer, and Carlyle Cameron. 132 Left to right: Miss Marie Dickson, Miss Jan Head, Advisors, Leone Wolber, President, Billie Huenger, Secretary, Ken Kraft, Vice-Presidentg Ann Farver, Student Council Repre- sentativeg Carlyle Cameron, Treasurer. uniofzs fllfiffp N'-744 05444 04" 164-v-L fart T ' I 4'f 9.14 I44-P.

This might well be the inscription on the first page of this ye:ir's Blue and Gold. Under the leadership of Pat Batcheller and .Iohn Sunday, the seniors published the 1952 edition of the Blue and Gold. Early in the fall the committees for the annual were organized. First came the big job of working out a schedule for the publication. Then the club sponsors had to be interviewed for the write-ups, pictures had to be taken, and the lay-out decided upon. This resulted in worried seniors busily scurrying about in order to finish their particular job by the dead-line. Next came the job of listing the activities of the seniors. From the eno1'mity of this task, it might well be concluded that the class of '52 has led a busy and active high school career. Although the job of publishing a yearbook requires a lot of hard work, last minute changes, and numerous difficulties, let it never be said that the staff did not enjoy their work. Much was learned from the exper- ience that yearbook writing provides. The staff would like to express their appreciation to all those persons who gave their time to help make this year's Iflue and Gold possible. After all the pictures were taken and the articles written, everyone gave a sigh of relief. Another annual had been succssfully completed.

They marched at tour ot' the home football games, executing Varied and in- teresting halt'-time maneuvers which were designed by mem- bers oi' the band. Aside from their marching ability, the band exhibited their talent in presenting concert music. The annual winter concert, which was dedicated to Abraham Lincoln, was presented on February I2 in the field house. This was one of the first programs ot' its kind to be given in the new building. Outstanding selections of the concert in- cluded compositions ol' Tchaikovsky, Bach, St. Saen. Paless irina, and Gould. A trip to Beloit Vollege on March 7 was one ofthe highlights ot' the year. On April 29, the band journeyed to Belvidere where they played a conce1't forthe high school student body. A spring concert was given May 25, when the band presented llershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue." Playing at Commencement m irlced the end ot' a busy season.

"You 7 Can Help" was the slogan of the Junior Red Cross Coun- f cil during their campaign to collect clothing for needy s- V X families in the United States and Korea. This project -' hi, was in compliance with the National Campaign for cloth- ing for the Indian Reservations, other needy social groups in the United States and Korean Refugees. Other projects included enrolling students in the Junior T xlx Red Cross, publishing a bulletin about Red Cross activ- ' 9 ities in the area, and collecting money to help pay doctor and hospital bills for a student who received injuries at school. The home-rooms each added a foot to the March of Dimes this year. Each group was presented a card- board foot which had slots for 18 dimes. This novel idea proved to be very helpful in the success of the drive.

"The Book Rack," "Dial Your Style," and "Hits by a Miss" were added features which were topped off by specially illustrated headings. Unusual baby pictures of students aroused the readers' curiosities. Because of capable reporters, the news stories had that certain "wow." Co-editors Nancy Rothstein and Marlene Metzner were ably advised by the new sponsor, Miss Margaret Ramsey. After a neglect of several years, membership into Quill and Scroll, National Honorary High School Journalistic Fraternity, was renewed, thereby automatically elevat- ing the standards of the staff.

The high-light of the year was, of course, the initiation of the members which was held at Sinnissippi Fark with the coaches acting as "chefs" Mr. Scheid is the sponsor of the group.

'Po pw 95 A L DY ,fm Q , Recfzeational Gounci The noon-time recreation activities which took place this year were under the direction of this group. It is composed of a representative from each of the home rooms. Co-chairmen for the Recreational Council were Nancy Kunde and Earl Bailey. Mr. Scheid was the sponsor of the group. The recreation program included tournaments of all kinds. The home rooms organized teams to compete in each activity. By process of elimination, a champion of each sport was chos- en from both the boys' and girls' home rooms. The winner of each tournament was awarded a trophy which they kept until the completion of the next tournament, when it was pre- sented to the new winning home room. This, in itself, was a tournament to see how many times each home room could win the trophy. This year's program proved to be a big success, and it is hoped that the recreation program can be duplicated next year.

The 1951 Varsity football team finished with the very creditable record of five wins, two ties, and one loss, and a third place in the NCIG race. Glenn Alderfer, Carlyle Cameron, Wayne Hussung, and quarter- back Barry Musgrove shared the scoring honors, with Wallie Pepper as our defensive line-back- er. Ilick Lyons was the "educated-toe man" this year, and our outstanding linemen were Don Shontz, Raouland Howe, and Larry Letch- er.

Of course, we're speaking of our fine new fieldhouse, which is really the front-line showplace of Sterling Township High School. The first basketball game, and, in addition, the first public activity of any kind to be held in it was the Tilden Tech-Sterling game on December 1. Superintendent Eades con- ducted a short dedication ceremony preceding the game. Although the Coliseum used to be well filled for all of Sterling's home games, the same number of spectators in our fieldhouse looked rather insignificant due to the vastly increased seating capacity. Sterling High was fortunate to have the sectional tourney assigned to the fieldhouse this spring, since it gave a very large number of people from other localities a chance to see the new structure with its amaz- ingly complete facilities.

The boys who paced the offensive threat were Herhy Reed, who scored 122 points: John Wolf, who collected 1443 and the leading scorer, with 181 points, John Carrillo. As this 21-game slate which our Frosh-Soph team plays is a rather long one, the future basketball stars of SHS are gaining' a lot of fine experience. Another advantage is that they come up against the same teams now that they will compete with in Varsity play. The Frosh-Soph Papooses furnished us with some excellent preliminary contests out at the fieldhouse this past winter, and we look for- ward to seeing many of these hoys gaining a berth on next year's Varsity team. l"lliS'l' ROW: Jim Eshleman, Sam Mylin, Herb Reed, Leon Neece, Lyle Nailor, Walter Garriott, John Marshall, Bill Kempster, manager.

The .Iunior Varsity lmasketlrall team, or, as they are com- monly known, the J-V's were the "winningest" lmaskctliall team SHS possessed this past season. Coached by Rernie Mitchell, the J-V's racked up ll wins against 3 losses, heating such teams as the East Rockford .I-V's, the Free- port J-V's, and the Franklin Grove varsity. The out- standing players were Gray, Cameron, Marquis, and Letcher. This team had the honor oi' lmeing the first Sterling team ever to win a game in the new fieldhouse, when on Deceniher 8 they defeated Freeport 538-333. At one time this team had a 7-game winning streak going. Although this is one of the SHS teams which 'receives little attention, it is still very important, since it gives many boys who want to play, and otherwise could not, a chance to have a well-organized outfit, and it also is a developing and proving ground for rising players. 1955 qrfzesizman gaslzefim ff'N '- .953 'Z The Freshman basketball team, coached by Holm McMurray, managed to win one out of seven games this past season, Dixon being their only victim.

However, hard work and great improvement of several individuals . and a fine team spirit resulted in another fine Varsity track team which came through with the 5th successive . Conference title and the third District Championship in a row. We also scored our 14th successive dual meet . victory over Dixon, and our star pole vaulter, Bob Gal-- loway, placed third in this event at the State Champion- . ships at Champaign. The Frosh-Soph outfit also carried on ap1'opos of Sterling 9 High in squeezing out a 345 to 335 victory over Ottawa in its Conference meet, while winning 4 out of 5 regular g season meets.

A few years ago wrestling was unknown at SHS. In fact, when it was first introduced as a inter-school competitive sport, our coaches had a very difficult time finding suitable foes for the boys. But, as you all probably know, this problem has disappeared, and our matmen wrestle a long, interesting, and difficult schedule. The Sterling Township High School Wrestling team coached by Homer B. Musgrove and Chester Sherman had a very successful season this past winter. Five members of the team participated in the State meet which was held at Proviso High in Maywood. Although Sterling was not award- ed with a place winner in the big meet, the Golden Warriors did excep- tionally well against very keen competition. The team took fourth place in the Davenport Invitational, second in the Beginners' Meet, won five and lost four matches during the regular season against teams including Maquoketa, Peoria Woodruff, Peoria Manual, and Molineg won the NCIC Meetg and tied for third in the Sec- tional Meet. The outstanding performers included Bob Kosier, John Fassler, Earl Beck, Don Rhoades, Phil Beach, Ken Kraft, and Art Kraft. Art went undefeat- ed for the season until the State Meet, many times wrestling boys above his own weight classification. Wrestling has obviously become a major spo1't as SHS, and, as such, is attracting a bigger following each year. We can all feel proud of the fact that the "grunt-and-groan boys" have made such rapid strides to gain the place they now occupy as interscholastic representatives of our school. whestlin VARSITY SEASON'S RECORD Davenport Invitational Tournament: Sterling 4th Beginners' Tournament: Sterling 2nd Sterling ISS Maquoketa 5 Sterling 22 Rock Island 28 Sterling 10 Moline 233 Sterling' 38 Pekin 52 Peoria Woodruff 23-1 Sterling 15 Clinton 250 Sterling 28 Ottawa 5 Sterling' 28 Peoria Manual 17 Sterling 123 Peoria Woodruff 16 Sterling' 38 Genesee 15 NCIC Meet: Sterling 1st place Seetional Meet: Sterling' tied for Ilrcl pluee "B" SQUAD Sterling 45 Dixon Varsity S Sterling 12 Moline HB" 16 Sterling 23 Lyons Varsity 233 O I O O I O I I I O O O O O I I O I :1: m's0urv:r:'g1q1f:.:w-im 11 ,ff 2 1: ,yr " i' w"mnm-wswryfv V I 1 l"lliS'l' NUVVZ Alvin Ilixnond, Gerald Ifrimodt, Morchol Flynn, Riulmrd Allvn, .Iohn l,0l'SOIl?l.

In regular season matches, our racket-men won only one out of eleven bouts. However, they managed to place third in the five-team District Meet. The 1951 tennis Warriors were led by such men as Jerry Frimodt, Bob Baither, and Jon Surratt. Tennis as an important inter-school sport is definitely on the up- swing at SHS, and with the further de- velopment of the above-mentioned boys, plus a few others, 1952 could easily be THE year for tennis at Sterling High. Gall The Golf team from SHS completed a not- too-successful season in 1951, winning none of their matches. They met such teams as Dixon, Rochelle, and Freeport. The leading players were Ervin Lobaugh, Dean Zellar, and Jack Schafer. Golf, one of the minor sports at SHS, is coached by Peter Hoogeveen. gaselzall The SHS Baseball team in 1951 played a rough 15-game schedule and finished with a very creditable record of 6 wins, 8 losses, and one tie.
