The Senior Class of 1954, being the first class to complete our high school career in the new
building, has many memories of the school, its system, and our own numerous accomplishments dur-
ing the past four years.
Because of the lack of space, we were unable to hold a class mixer, but by the spring of '51 we
knew each other well enough to thoroughly enjoy ourselves at our first class picnic held at Sinnissippi
Park. Mary Saunders, Craig Castle, Nancy Graham, and Nancy Kosier led our class with the en-
thusiasm which never died throughout our last four years together.
uThe Candy Carousel," our first chance to show the school exactly what we could do, as far as
entertainment was concerned, turned out to be a real success. This dance, and many other events, made
our Sophomore year one to always remember. John Carrillo, Fred Sinroll, Jean Bloomquist, and
Merle Johnson formed the nucleus of the class, and passed along much information valuable to us
during our first year out of "probation"
Two years of experience, and the capable guidance of Neil Brown, Herb Reed, Janet Williams,
and Larry Larson gave us, as Juniors, the spirit needed to excell in our many endeavors. This spirit
seemed to shine more intensely during October of 752, as we won the Homecoming Parade fioat
contest and held our second highly successful dance, '4The Jack-O-Lantern Jurnpf' A combination of
ideas and skills formulated NFantasia,', the Junior-Senior Prom, and our largest project thus far.
Eight of our classmates earned the honor of being inducted into the National Honor Society in the
spring of '53.

Miss Doris Burritt and Miss Ruth Welle assisted and guided our class 'and our
officers, Margo Dillon, Joanne Dettman, Sandra Smith, and Virginia Allison, in their usual
congenial manner, which in itself gave our Senior year a finishing touch only friendship
can add. Again in October, as was the year before, our class had a close race in the float
contest in the Homecoming festivities, and finished with second place. Our boys, with the
help of the entire coaching staff, credited the school and class with many high honors in
the sports field. More classmates achieved success in Various competitive spheres, a few
being music, debate, and essay contests. The Senior dances, Senior Recognition Day, the
Senior class picnic, Baccalaureate, the Junior-Senior Prom, and last but not least, Gradua-
tion, highlighted our fourth, and last year in the halls and classrooms of Sterling High
School-our Alma Mater.

Blue 81 Gold Staff
Moans, groans, and screams of sheer agony were heard during the past two semesters when a
person passed through the northeast corridors, near the art room. Under these circumstances, the '54
Blue and Gold was carefully laid out and processed into the book which lies before you.
Although many hours were spent in concentration, never let it be said that the members of the
class of '54 were all work and no play. Many laughs and jokes accompanied the difficult work of
composing a presentable annual.
The co-editors, Billie Speer and Eileen Eberhardt, under the supervision and understanding
guidance of Mr. Nehring, quickly disposed of the many problems which became apparent during their
employment as head of the annual stall. Les Weinstine, business manager, Margo Dillon, club editor,
Joanne Nicholson, social editor, Allan Hall, art editor, Lee Tyne and Joe Burkholder, photographers,
along with their various committees and equipment aided the editors in every way possible in making
the annual of this year complete.
Because of the fact that this book is our last contribution to the school, we, the annual staff and
class of '54, sincerely hope that you, the readers, will enjoy our annual as much as we have enjoyed

The Quill and Scroll is an honorary organization for
students with a high ability in the journalistic field. To
become a. member, one must be on the Script or Annual
staff, a junior or senior in the upper third of his class in
scholastic standing or creative ability, and he must be
recommended by the advisor, Miss Hayn.

The National Honor Society was established in 1921 because high school
principals believed that there was not enough attention and recognition given to
students with high scholastic standards. In 1949 the local chapter was organized.
ln order to become a member of this honored society a student must possess
these four qualities: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. The individ-
uals are recommended and selected by the faculty, and their names become
known to everyone else during a very impressive 'itappingn ceremony.
The members traveled to Walnut in December to induct new mmbers into
their society. Also in December they inducted seven members of the senior class.
They were: John De Wind, Margo Dillon, Herb Reed, Mary Saunders, Larry
Larson, David Swehla, and Charlice Buyers. They also inducted some seniors
and juniors in May. They presented a beautiful plaque to the school in the form
of the societyis pin, only larger.

A touch of Christmas was added to the halls of S. H. S. in the
form of a beautifully decorated tree. The Student Council was re-
sponsible for this. It is one of the most important functioning groups
of the school. The organization also operated the school supply store
all year for the convenience of the students. Building school moral
and attitude was one of the most important projects undertaken by
the council during the 1953-54 school term along with the collection
for the polio benefit and backing the other school clubs.

Once again the student librarians have contributed to
the efficiency of the school. To become a librarian a stu-
dent must fill out an application blank and have two of
his teachers sign it.
A Christmas and gift exchange party was held in
the library during the Christmas season. In the spring
they held their annual picnic.
The organization elected Joann Dettman, head librar-
iang Laurel Larson, desk librariang Charlotte Meiners,
magazine librarian, and Ruth Pelton was in charge of
decorating the bulletin boards. They were under the

Council have paid dividends. The number of 'ccowboyv
drivers around S. H. S. has decreased considerably.
In the meetings of the club State and City policemen

sity of caution in driving and walking. The organization
has also been the incentive behind the numerous posters

Among its activities of the past year were picnics, pot-
luck suppers, and evening meetings at which various
demonstrations were given. The main activity was enter-
ing a float in the Homecoming Parade and receiving
first place. Their money-making projects included the
selling of Christmas cards and F. H. A. pencils during
National F. H. A. Week.
The club plans to send a delegate to the F. H. A.
State Camp which is held during one week in the summer.

In Memory Of
A friendly smile and greeting are two goals in life which
many people never achieve. Rikus Luebbers mastered these
essentials of friendship early in his short life, just as he achieved
many high honors in all F. F. A. activities during his three and
one-half years at S. H. S. These recognitions included the
Greenhand Degree in his freshman year, Chapter Farmer dur-
ing his sophomore year, and an all around honor of presenting
and maintaining, for three years, the largest Supervised Farm-
ing program of any S. H. S. Agricultural student in the past
ten years. Rikus also received honors in 4-H. His untimely
death prevented him from gaining the many awards awaiting
him, one being the State LLH Master Dairyman, the highest
honor given to a member of the 41-H.
His fine personal qualities gained many friends at school,
at home, in clubs, and most important of all, at church where
he was an active member for years. His short life was filled
with a goodness which made him a most memorable classmate
of the students of S. H. S. and of the Senior class of 19541.

They were much in demand as a performing group in the community.

Every day during the noon hour, the band could be heard practicing
laboriouslyg whether it be for a half time show at the football games or
for a formal concert. As a result of this labor, the band completed a very
successful year. They marched at all the home football games, proving
their ability to demonstrate many interesting formations. The band also
journeyed out of town on various occasions to march in other parades.

speedball, bowling, volleyball, basketball, swimming,
stunts, tumbling, skating, aerial darts, and softball were
the activities offered to the members. ln October the
members made preparations for the Homecoming bon-
fire, dance, and parade. A few of the other social activities
on this busy schedule were: a Chili Supper, Mother-
Daughter Tea, and the annual W. P. A. dance. The high-
light of the year was the Mother-Daughter Banquet and
formal initiation and installation of officers for next year.

The Pep Club completed its second year at S. H. S.
with a perfect record. The club is the "spirit" behind the
student cheering section at all competitive activities.
The members worked out many skits which were pre-
sented at pep meetings and at a few games. The skits
contained both humor and a moral-usually the idea
'4Warriors scalp them" was used.
The officers for the year were: Nancy Kosier, presi-
dentg Gale Dillon, vice-presidentg Beruta Benkitis, treas-
urer, Judy Hoogeveen, membership chairmang and Sylvia
Scham, program chairman. The sponsors of the group
were Miss Phillip and Miss Neal.

The USv Club this year was divided into two parts:
the major and minor. Some of the clubis activities were
selling football and basketball season tickets, being spon-
sors for the homecoming parade, bonfire, and dance,
buying film for the purpose of taking movies of the
Warrior football and basketball games, and having an
initiation picnic for the new award winners. A few of
the money-making projects were providing ushers for the
football and basketball games, selling pencils, and print-
ing the football programs,
Lyle Zimmerman led the group as president followed
by Ray Cebhardt, vice-president, ,lobn Carrillo, secre-
tary, and John DeWind, treasurer. Mr. Hunsberger and

ln spite of pre-season predictions that the Warriors
would have a losing season, they came through in a
manner usually shown by Sterling teams. Instead of a
losing season, the team turned the tables and came
through with a very successful one. They won the inter-
city title and finished second in the N. C. I. C. The
Warriors placed several men on various honor teams
throughout the state. Bernie Mitchell should be compli-
mented on his team's success even though they were for
the most part inexperienced.

Freshmen dominated the Frosh-Soph team this year,
as a large number of sophomores were on the varsity.
Because of inexperience, they had just an average season,
winning three, losing three, and tying two. The squad
should be strong next year because of the large number
of freshmen. They have excellent potential for the future

Coach Hunsberger's Pee Wee squad was as usual,
small and inexperienced but showed promise this year.
They played a total of five games, losing three, winning
one and tieing one. They are expected to play many more
games for the Blue and Cold. If these boys continue to
grow and improve in their playing as much as they did
this past fall, they will be fine material for the future

the season with 14 wins and 16 losses. They were small,
but played very well against teams that were often taller.
They won third place in the Sterling Holiday Tournament
and in the New-Mor-Roc-Ster Tournament. They finished
the season strongly, winning the Dixon Regional by beat-
ing Franklin Grove, Rock Falls, and Dixon. They lost
out to a smooth-playing Moline outfit in the finals of the
sectional held here at Sterling. The team was young and
inexperienced having only three returning lettermen.

The golf team had a rather poor season even
though they did show fair golf at times. They finished
Hfth in the N. C.I.C. meet. Chuck Mitchell was the
outstanding member of the team. The other members
showed improvement as the season developed.
Curt Brandau's tennis team had a season that
was neither exceptional or poor. The team captured
third in the N. C. 1. C. meet. Jim Scheuler received
second place in this meet. The team showed improve-
ment as the season lengthened and showed some excel-
lent tennis at times.
Coach Homer Musgrove's baseball squad had a
very successful season. They won 12 and lost only 4.
Every team that defeated Sterling, Sterling gained
revenge and defeated them later in the season. They
finishd second in the N. C. 1. C. summer baseball pro-
gram. Sterling's attack was lead by Carrillo, Puter-
baugh, and Ohnen while Pete Dillon turned in some
very fine performances on the mound.
