As freshmen we had a very successful year under the leadership of Ann Farver, Carlyle Cameron, Ramon Gonzalez, and Ann Lahman. Our "Freshman Mixer", which gave everyone an opportunity to get acquainted with his many new classmates, started us out on our new way of life for the following four years. A picnic held in the spring at Sinnissippi Park climaxed our initial year at Sterling Township High School. It wasnit very long before we had shed our "green freshien titles and had begun our second year at S.H.S. One of the highlights of the year was "Cupid,s Caper". Also, our class was the one to inaugurate the Sophomore Mixed Chorus. That year we were under the capable guidance of John Dillon, Dick Ohnen, Sylvia Bawden, and Doris Woessner. By the time we became Juniors, we had gained an abundance of valuable ex- perience in the art of giving successful partiesg and we used this information in making our Junior-Senior Prom, "The Starlight Plaza", a real success. During the last semester, eight members of our class were inducted into the National Honor Society. This very busy year was led by Leone Wolber, Ken Kraft, Billie Huenger, and Carlyle Cameron. 16 V I D , .

Early in April we sponsored the Senior dance, and Senior Recognition Day was another of the highlights of the year.

The class scored a hit in the homecoming parade with their original float, and, in February they ordered their class rings, which were of modern design. Also in February the sophomores held their annual Valentine Dance, to which the whole school was invited. As always, the dance was one of the social successes of the school year. We are sure the sophomore class will continue along this successful path of business and social accomplishments in their future years at S.H.S. 4?

Before you, you see the faces of those who made this annual possible, those who have planned, written, inter- viewed, taken pictures and so laboriously compiled this book. If you had passed by Mr. Branclauis room during the eighth or ninth periods of any day, you would have heard music playing softly, along with the mumbles of those so ardently working out the most minute details of the annual. The music was not all for pleasure, however, for it served as a sedative to soothe the frazzled nerves of those working within. lt was while listening to the soft music that the inspiration for the theme of the annual was derived. N The work began in the fall by giving assignments to the staff reporters. After that initial step had been taken, no one seemed to know where to start. Having no previous experience made the work difficult for the staff. For this reason, the co-editors for the 554 annual were selected at the beginning of the second semester, and they worked with the editors of this year's book so they might have some advanced information and experience. At this time, the staff led by Billie Huenger, Lauren Frazier, Pete Dillon, Mary Lou Oglevee, and Ramon Gonzalez would like to thank all those who have so conscientiously worked and given their time in order that this annual might be published. 56 413 GL: Row l: David Clark.

It was started at Sterling High School in 1951, and only students who are on the Script staff are admitted. Members, who are inducted at an annual candle lighting cere- mony, must have the following qualifications: they must be juniors or seniors, in the upper third of their class in scholastic standing or creative abilityg and they must be recommended by the advisor, Miss Hayn. ational Honor ociet liow l: Nlrs.

The local chapter of the society was organized in l949. There are four main qualities which a student must possess to be chosen for membership by the faculty. They are scholarship, which is determined by grades for the four yearsg leadership, which is the ability to actually lead others or to inspire them towards good thinking and worthwhile actiong service, which is helpfulness and willingness to serveg and character, or one's moral standards and ideals. The new members, upon being received into the group in a very impressive utap- ping" ceremony, recite the pledge of the Sterling chapter of the National Honor Society: Ml pledge myself to uphold the high purpose of the National Honor Society to which l have been electedg l will be loyal at all times to my schoolg and will maintain and encourage high standards of scholarship, leadership, character, and servicef, There are scholarships open to one-fourth of the membership of a school7s society . and four of our students competed for these awards in the latter part of March. The officers this year were Ramon Gonzalez, presidentg Mary Lou Ogleyee. secre- taryg and Ken Kraft. treasurerg with Mrs. llavis acting as club advisor. 61k Momtors Sterling High School is very proud of its monitors and the part which they have played in our school government. halls and in the commendations which they received from 'bac' many visitors. To be a monitor a student must be a senior in good stand- 09 ing and a responsible and co-operative person.

The Science Club was a new organization this year, and membership was open to those students who showed an interest in science and attended three meetings in succession. Their aim was to promote interest in science and to increase their knowl- edge in that field of study. This proved to be a very active club, and the members joined the Junior Academy of Sciences. .The group visited the Cylinder Cas Company and other industries in Sterling, and a trip to the Museum of Science and lndustry in Chicago was one of the big events of the year. Students gave demonstrations on the oscilloscope, atomic energy, and the electron tube, and occasionally qualified speakers from various con- cerns presented talks and programs. Also, part of the group attended the Science Fair in DeKalb. Dick Drane was president of the organization, and he was assisted by Lee Tyne, vice-president, and Colin Stewart, secretary and treasurer.

CN The Frosh-Soph team was composed of a large number of freshmen, and one of the major problems was inexperience. Many of their losses were due to 'Y mistakes made because of this inexperience. There was also a jinx of injuries that hampered the team. The team had fair size, good speed, and was con- N sidered good material for the future varsity football squads. 64 XX XXX .

They were small in stature, but they had the fighting spirit and the desire to win. ln most of their games they were out-weighed, but they were never out- played. Coach Youngberg expects many of his boys to come through and make fine material for the var- sity in the future. 108 Row 1: John Carrillo, Jim DeZul1a, Dick Wilson, manager, Gene Hall, coach, Al Dimond, Ron Michel.

They won the Sterling Regional Tournament with victories over Milledgeville, Dixon, and Rock Falls. It took a highly rated Rock lsland team, two ref- erees, and one official scorer to defeat the fighting underdog Sterling team. Sterling finished second in the tough N.C.1.C. Conference and also played good ball in capturing second place in the First Annual Sterling Holiday Meet. Dick Ohnen, Chuck Mitchell, John Marquis, Ray Gehhardt, and Larry Letcher formed the nu- cleus of this years team. The only thing lacking on this years team was the element of luck which every team needs. Co-captain i'Chuck" Mitchell, a transfer student from Fairfield, set a new seasoxfs record by scoring 525 points in Sterlingis 27 games. He averaged 19.4 points for the season. He also finished third in the N.C.l.C. individual scoring race with a total of 165 points for a 13.3 average. 'lchuckw was also chosen for the first team all-con- ference team. Co-captain Dick Ohnen won the Curt Brandau Free Throw Trophy. The Sterling senior set a new rec- ord hy making seventy-eight out of one hundred and fifteen attempts. This was good for the record- breaking percentage of 67.82 per cent. Dick was placed on the sec- ond tealn of the all-conference squad hecause of his stellar defen- sive xsork and floor play. i Co-captains Al Dimond Dick Cebliardt Don Puterbaugh Larry Li-tclwr Lyle Wolher .lohn Marquis Ronnie Newell Rofmiff Mifhfll Laffy MCCOY .lolm Carrillo Jim IJvZuba Fresh-Soph Basketball Row l: Dick Nice, ,lim Johnson, John Marshall, Jim Austin, Bill Kempster, manager.

The Frosh-Soph basketball squad won 12 games and lost 7. They won 6 out of their first 7 games before falling into a mid-season slump. During the latter part of the season, they snapped out of their slump and played fine ball. The team was composed of a mixture of freshmen and sophomores. They are fine material for the future. 112 Sterling Sterling, Sterling, Sterling Sterling, Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling Sterling a v Q v SEASONS RECCRD 41, Morrison, 29 38, Freeport, 4-4, Dixon, 40 45, Newman, 38 46, DeKalb, 51 47, Mendota, 41 42, Rock Falls, 215 44, Caleshurg, 49 41, Dixon, 42 30, West Rockford, 45 40, Rock Falls, 3.3 62, Rochelle, 39 41, Princeton, 50 35, Ceneseo, 45 43, Newman, 49 70, Hall Twp., 22 41, East Roekform , 49 44 Ottawa, 38 Frosli-Soph tournament at Hook Falls Sterling, 31, Morrison, 36 Junior Varsit 81 Freshman Basketball Row I: Les Weinstine, Neal Bressler, Bob Cox, Charles Cox.

They placed third in the quad- rangular meet at Moline, fourth in the Davenport In- vitational, and second in the beginners tournament. Sterling walked off with the first place in the N.C.I.C. meet held at Sterling, and we were nosed out of the district championship by one point, 4-5 to 415. Sterling split two HBH team matches and the "B" squad also wrestled several practice matches with Rock Falls and Dixon. By placing second in the district, we sent 6 men to the state finals in Champaign. Kraft, Fassler, Alde fer, Beck, Dettman, and Kilberg were the boys whc brought Sterling to a fine tenth place showing in the big meet at Champaign.

He represented' Sterling in the state tourney at Champaign the follow- ing week. The N.C.l.C. tournament at Rochelle was won by Rochelle, and Sterling finished sixth. Sterling failed to win any of their dual meets but played good golf at times. In 7 dual meets in 1952, the Sterling team won 3 and lost 4 for one of the best records they have com- piled in recent years. The tennis picture is looking up at S.H.S. Thomas and Frimodt played fine tennis in the tough district meet at Moline. We played host to the N.C.l.C. tournament and placed third behind Dixon and Rochelle. Flynn, Stewart, Surratt, Allen, Smith, Schueler, and Weinstine were the other major letter winners. The Sterling Township High baseball team, under the direction of Coach Homer Musgrove, won 8 games and lost 6 while completing a tough schedule. They lost their chance for the conference championship when they dropped 2 games to Ottawa by one run each. Anderson, B. Musgrove, and Lyons led Sterling's at- tack, while Musgrove won 3 and lost 23 and Dillon won 4 and lost 3 to lead the moundsmen.
