Presented by the students of
STILLNLAN VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL
Stillman Valley, Illinois
On the pages of this book are written the
many events and activities of '52, We hope that
this yearbook will serve as a permanent record
of your school days. In years to come when you
glance back through this record, may it bring back
many pleasant memories of your high school life.
As a means of thanking Mr. and Mrs.
Roe for a year of hard work and unselfish
devotion, we wish to dedicate the Cardinal
of 1952 to them.
We are extremely grateful for the hard
work they have done to make certain that
Stillman Valley shall always be able to
support a modern, and progressive school.

Macalester College Instrumental Music
Can you imagine Stillman without Hub?
He has just completed his 23rd year at
S. V. H. S. This year he moved into a new
room, formerly the tool room of the old
shop. Here he gave about 100 music students
lessons each week. Both 'Hub' and the
students like this new location. Can you
visualize what his work has meant to this
Whitewater State Teachers College Commercial Library
Room Z5 at the head of the stairs is always a center

part of our school experience.

,Q The nammous Declaration
F, Of The Senior Class of 1952, S. V. H. S.
When in course of school events, it becomes necessary for
the Senior Class to dissolve the educational bonds which have
connected it to the other classes, and to assume the duties of
citizenship for which their school life has prepared them, a
decent respect to the opinion of the other classes requires that
they should transcribe this history leading up to their grad-

gf? L '. .5 7
It has been ten years since I've seen any of my former classmates so l've decided to get in my jet plane
and see what I can find out about my classmates.
May 2 This was the first day of my trip. Today I went to Stillman Valley where I found Glenn Halsne
who has become principal of S. V. H. S. Some of the teachers are Nonle Foster who teaches history and Betty
Smith who teaches English Lit. I asked Betty if she liked Lit. better than when she was in high school?
She admitted she didn't. Both Nonie and Betty were anxious to tell me about their families which fill up
their spare time.
I left the school and went out South of Stillman where I found George Glendenning who was very busy
raising pigs. He had very little time to talk. He did tell me, though, that he was happily married but,
not to his school days' sweetheart.
May 3 Today I flew out to Cinncinati where I found Freddie Schieble leading a band. Some of the
members of his band are David Magnuson, Jim Hilliard and Dick Reiken who are still just as good
friends as they were in high school. They have a very find band. Freddie is just as he was In high school.
His wife is Donna Herring.
May 4 Today as I landed my jet who should come to take care of it but John Swanson. He's still a
bachelor and full of fun. lwent into the cafeteria and there I found Mary Ellen Fischer and Bonnie
Hendrickson. I found they were co -owners of what they call Homer and Bon's place.
May 5 Today I went to New York City. ln New York I heard that Carol Vaupel was a teacher in one
of the schools so I decided to go visit her. Carol is a French teacher. She is still unmarried.
May 6 Today I flew to a small town on the coast of Maine where I found Gloria Metheny and her
husband. I found that Gloria's cook was Reberta Knight. Gloria said she just loves Maine.
May 7 I decided I would fly to Florida today. When I arrived in Miami Beach I was greeted with
the news that Audrey Hayes had finally caught Dick Amour and they were down here enjoying their
At the hotel I met Donna Bolthouse. Donna's husband owns the hotel. She made me feel very much
at home. .
May 8 Today l flew to New Orleans. At New Orleans l heard Elwyn Sanders was farming just a few miles
from there so l flew to his fami. I found that Lois Glendenning and her husband were visiting Elwyn. Lois
told me that Carolyn Manus had finally found a man to suit her tastes and had settled down near her old
May 9 Today 1 flew to Kentucky to see Allene Blume who has changed her name to Fraley. Allene is
the proud mother of twins.

OVER THE RAINBOW
Under a pale blue sky, girls in various colored pastel
evening dresses and their escorts danced over a multi-
colored rainbow to find a gleaming "Pot of Gold". This
event took place on the night of May 4, 1951 at the annual
junior senior prom. The background music for this attract
ive setting was under the direction of Jack Sweeney. The
theme-song, "Over the Rainbow", introduced the first
dance set. Refreshments were served, at a booth bedecked
with multi-colored crepe paper streamers. Two very able
sophomore boys, Ricardo Navarro and David Hendrickson
served the punch.
The evening's festivities were brought to a close as the
orchestra played the theme-song, "Over the Rainbow".

dozen, ranging from Anne, the oldest, down to little Lillian, L
the youngest. Mr. Gilbreth tries to teach his children to get

He believed silk stockings, nice clothes, dates, pets, pop-
ular music, and dancing were all a waste of time and effort. r
His growing daughter, Anne, a Senior in high school, i
rebels, deciding she has been a wall flower long enough. As
a result the family life becomes a turmoil of clashing wills.

The music department has had an in-
crease in members. The mixed chorus
membership reached a total of forty-eight.
This group sang for various programs in
the fall and at the christmas season.
Occasionally, the girls sang without the
boys, thus forming a girls' three-part
chorus. The latter showed a marked
growth in sight reading, phrasing and
interpretation of different types ofmusic.
From the full chorus developed two
special groups that spent extra time on
music. One was the double mixed quartet
which sang for several community prograrris
and out of town for special occasions.
The boys' quartet upon request sang
for several affairs around town and in
neighboring communities. 40

For several years the Stillman Valley area has dreamed of an athletic field with adequate lighting for football, softball, track
and community projects. About a year ago the wheels began to roll to make this dream a reality. The land adjoining the high
school in the west was purchased from the landowners. Late in the summer of '51 a call was put out by Mr. Roe and Mr. Getschman
for help to clear the land. Many boys volunteered for this work and in a few days the fences were cleared, trees cut down, and the
ground leveled and plowed. Finally after days of grading and rolling, seed was planted and everyone settled back to watch it grow.
Before winter had set in they were rewarded with a thick teen coverin of B h
g g grass. y t is time the field was beginning to take on a
look of reality.
ln the early fall of 1951, a meeting of the representatives of all the clubs and organizations of the area was called to discuss
ways to raise funds for the field lights. Mr. Eno Wiltfang and Mr. Parkinson were elected to head this group. They decided to
sponsor fund raising activities and to solicit donation in ff
mately 35, OOO of this amount had been obtained.
The first major problem of the group was to locate poles, which needed to be 75 feet long. After many delays these were
located and ordered from a firm in Kansas, and on a cold January morning these arrived and were promptly delivered to the field.
T e next obstacle was to find a way to dig the holes and raise these tremendous poles. As spring approached, these difficulties
were overcome and the group put on its final drive for funds to purchase the light fixtures. Some of the activities sponsored were
box socials, dances, square dances, plays, a donkey basketball game, and a Carnival and minstrel show. By June the entire area
was looking forward to a lighted athletic field for the fall football games.

The 1951 season's opening game was
a night tangle with Byron on their field.
This being the first game of the season,
our team was tense and nervous. Our pass
defense by our halfbacks was very weak
with two lettermen, returning from last
year, out. The game
ended with a score
of 48-7 in Byron's favor.
The second game was with Monroe
Center, played on Byron's gridiron. The
Cardinals took a lead of 6-O in the first
quarter. Then, in the second quarter, the
Panthers marched downfield to score two
touchdowns and an extra point. Stillman
managed to score in
making the half titne
of the Panthers. The

The Cardinals third attempt was with Kirkland. Stillrnan

was looking for a
tough contest with the Comets because of the past record that Kirkland had. The
defense against ground game was very good, but Kirkland's good passing offense
made the score 24-6.
The Cardinal's fourth game was with Elburn at Byron. In this game our defense
was quite effective, against E.lburn's big defensive center coming through the line,
making the score O-0 at the half. In the last quarter Ellburn scored 8 points ending
the game 8-0 in E.1burn's favor.
On Oct. 13, Stillman met with Winnebago in an afternoon game. Sti1ln'1an's
offense and defense were very weak: Winnebago made 20 points in the second
quarter making the score 20-0 at half tinue. Then in the last quarter Stillxnan
rallied 25 points and the game ended with Winnebago leading 40-25.
Pecatonica was the next opponent in another afternoon game. Stillman went
downfield scoring 7 points in the first quarter. Pec rallied for 6 points in the
second quarter, and at half time the score remained at 7-6 in favor of Stillrnan.
With Stillman coming within inches of the goal line several times they were pe-
nalized heavily. The game ended with Pec out in front 12-7.
On Oct. 25, Leaf River had its home coming with Stillman playing. Stillman
started off with the first touchdown of the game but Leaf River came back with 26
points at the end of the first quarter. Leaf River also scored another touchdown in
the second quarter making the score 32-6 at half time. With Stillman's offense very
weak they poured on 12 more points in the second half making the final score 44-12.
The last game of the football season was against Genoa on their gridiron. With
the ground frozen and about zero degrees: the game began. Genoa was ahead at half
time 26-14. Genoa, running end runs and passing, tallied 6 points in the final quarter
to end the game with a victory of 32-14.

The l95l-52 basketball season was entered into with a squad of small and
inexperienced boys with no returning lettermen and no one over the 6 foot mark
Despite these handicaps Stillman Valley finished in the Route 72 Conference
with a 5-9 won-lost record for fifth place in the conference.
They started with a 62-34 defeat from Kirkland and a 58-42 loss to a highly
rated Mr. Morris quintet. The Cardinals came back for their first conference
game with a win from Ashton 36-28. After winning from Oregon 50-48 in a
closely fought game, the team dropped four conference games in a row. ln the
first game of the Route 72 Tournament, in one of the best games of the year,
Monroe nipped the Cardinals with a long desperation shot from the middle of
the floor to win by a score of 62-61. Later Stillman reached the semifinals of
the Monroe Center District Tournament by defeating Durand 49-39, only to end
the season at the hands of the Monroe Panthers, 64-41.
