Senior Recognition Day, class meetings, invitations, and
plans for Baccalaureate and Graduation were all care-
fully explained and carried out under the co-guidance of
the Misses Ruth Welle and Doris Burritt. 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-
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
Miss Doris Burritt and Miss Ruth Welle

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.

The Junior class, supervised by two of our most capable teachers, Miss
Marie Dickson and Miss Jan Head, honored the Senior class with the an-
nual Junior-Senior 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.

"As you read this annual, let you be reminded of the valiant students
who gave their sanity for this publication."
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.

The Band had a very successful year in 1952. 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.

"Over here is the cheering section, kids!" That was a common state-

special student cheering section.

The Council, under the guidance of Miss Mary Harris, ?
had a busy year, undertaking many new projects. "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 officers for this year were: Carol Benson, president:
Lowell Hunsberger, vice-president: Norma Miller, secre-
tary: and Jean Bloomquist, treasurer.
SEATED: Floy Allen, Norma Miller, Miss Barbara Larson, Advisor.
STANDING: Don Stewart, Earl Bailey, Ann Farver.
"In view of these facts, we of the Negative conclude that you must
agree that the American people should reject the plan presented by
the Affirmative that all American citizens should be subject to con-
scription for essential services in time of war."
The debate club had a busy schedule this year, attending many tourn-
aments in various parts of the state. On January 26, a practice tourn-
ament Was held at Northern Illinois State Teachers' College in prepar-
ation for the annual invitational tournament held at Augustana College
on February 1. On March 1, the team attended the N.C.I.C. tourna-
ment which was held in Mendota.
The team this year consisted of Norma Miller and Earl Bailey, Nega-
tive, and Floy Allen, Ann Farver, and Don Stewart, Affirmative.

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.

This year's edition of the Golden Warriors was
indeed typical of the fine teams that Bernie
Mitchell has turned out over the span of time
that he has coached here. 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. With many great performers back next fall,

It took a long time, but we finally got it. 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.

This year's Frosh-Soph basketball team, coach-
ed by Curt Brandau, played a total of 21 games,
winning 11 and losing 10. 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.

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.
The Freshman basketball team, coached by Holm
McMurray, managed to win one out of seven
games this past season, Dixon being their only
victim. Leading nlayers were Johnson, Schue-
ler, and Galloway. This team of the younger
basketball players at Sterling serves as a testing
ground of talent and as a chance for these boys
to gain valuable experience which they will
need when they move up to the Frosh-Soph

UThe 1951 Track teams from Sterling Township once
' again came through in the clutch and gave us our tra-
ditional victories. With the passing of many stars from
. the 1950 team, one of the greatest ever to represent SHS,
. the outlook for 1951 was not too promising. 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. This team is coached by Chester Sherman
and his assistant, Gene Hall.

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-
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

Sterling's 1951 Tennis team fared little
better than any of the last few years'
teams, since they finished last in the NCIC
Tournament. 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.
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
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. Musgrove and Williamsen
we1'e our leading pitchers, while Pepper led the offen-
sive threat with a batting average of .309. Since only
four players were lost by the graduation route, Coach
Musgrove and his baseballers are looking forward to
the approaching season with much anticipation.
