Published by THE SENIOR CLASS of SWANTON HIGH SCHOOL SWANTON, OHIO THE PIONEER 1953 O... 11... 1 .1 As a means of thanking Mrs. Nell Kline for her many years of hard work and ser- vice as member and clerk of the school board, we wish to dedicate the "Pioneer" of 1953 to her. She taught one year at the old Center- ville School. From the years 1912 to 1920 and 1932 to 1952 she was clerk and board member. She is a member of the first family to have three generations to graduate from Swanton High School. She, her son Stanley, and her grand -daughter Car ol have obtained their s econdary school- ing here. We are extremely grateful for her many efforts and hope this volume will be a reminder for years to come of her accomplishments.

Hicksville Holland Malunee Ottawa Hills Anthony Wayne Wauseon Bedford Rural Montpelier Delta THEY 0 7 12 7 O 7 13 0 0 Coach Dunmeyer The 1952-53 Bulldog football team was one of the outstanding organizations of Swanton High School. Their record shows that much hard practicing and fine coaching went into those few weeks. Never before in the history of this high school has a re- cord been made to top Coach Dunmeyer's Eleven. Eight wins and one loss will be hard to surpass in the years to come. The Swanton Bulldogs opened their football season with an impressive 65-0 victory over Hicksville, The team went all out on a scoring spree, tallying 10 touchdowns . The Holland gridders nipped Swanton's M. V. L. hopes witha 7 -6 victory over the Bulldogs . Swan- ton's only score came when Lloyd Raker intercept- ted a Holland pas s . Contention over the extra point kick continued for long after the final whistle. In the next game, S, H, S, trampled a confident Maumee team, 34-12. Touchdowns were made by Raker, Dunbar, Mason, and Hallett's passing. The Bulldog's went touch-dovm crazy for the sec- ond time in four starts to whip Ottawa Hill'sElev- en 51-7 on the Hill's gridiron. One of the high- lights of the game was Jim Mason's 70 yard punt return, anda similar play by Captain Bruce Vau- ghan of 65 yards. Anthony Wayne's defeat 20-0 was the Dun- meyer Eleven's third win in four starts. Dun- bar and Mason tallied the TD s. During the half Bonnie Myers was crowned as the Homecoming Queen. Her attendents were: Deanie Jascur,sen- iorg Joyce Brodbeck, juniorg Marcella Zientek, sophomore: and Barbara Perkins, freshrnan. Swanton racked up its fourth win of the season by defeating the under -rated Wauseon team. Raker and Mason did the honors in the scoring field. Dim- bar connected for three extra points. ws X bf ff X 1 'JC Y x xix ,hx ?z N, fl: X 7 7x ii 4 Kick 'em high! Pass 'em low! In what many considered the top game of the sea son Swanton's Varsity Eleven edged Bedford Rura of Michigan 14-13. The Bulldogs took the lead i the second period on a 27 yard sprintby Lloyd Rak er. Dunbar's PAT was good to give the S, H. S. boys a 7-0 half-time advantage. Bedfordbounder- back in the third period with two quick tallies t plunge ahead 13- . Swanton recovered in the las quarter, however, on a three yard plunge TD an the extra point, both being registered by Larry Dunbar. It was Bedford's second defeat in 19 starts, and Swanton's fifth straight victory. The Bulldogs racked up their sixth straight victor and third shut-out of the season as they soundly trou.nced Montpelier's High School Locomotives Z7-O. Dunbar, Mason,and Hallett were given cre dit for the touchdowns. .I X I , xx MV Am. 16 IW, Dick Runnels and Bruce Vaughan gi fs! ,P 5 -I Yeh, Team! Fight!Fight! The Bulldogs swamped Delta's Panthers 54-0 in a contest in which all the backfield men played a prominent part. With the score standing at 1,3-O at the half,the Purple and White continued to blast away led by Mason's three touchdowns and a 79 yard Mason-to -Raker pass in the final period. The 54 point total exactly doubled the 1952. 27-O drub- bing inflicted by Delta. Besides hours of practice, another factor that might have made the Bulldogs a Winning team was the practically new bleachers and loudspeaker system. These new conveniences could very well have inspired the team to new glory. The b1eaCh.. ers with their cement block windbreak encouraged and held more spectators who, in turn, gave heav- ier support to the team. The loudspeaker was a great convenience to the spectators who were not familiar with the players, These aids were made possible by the Booster's Club. In recognition of the season, the annual football banquet, sponsered by the Swanton Commerce Club, was held in the Knights of Columbus Dining Hall on December 10, 1952. The most valuable player award was given to Jim Mason who was veryworthy of this honor . Sam Monetti presented 1 x 'V' .. 2 -LN I wi "5 as X?

This was the second straight year that the team has gone undefeated. Due to the excellent coaching of Coach Byron Rad - ebaugh, the S. H.

The proceeds were used for sound -proofing . When the football season was over, the Band Moth- er s presented them with the annual band banquet. At the banquet those who were outstanding in appearance during the season received cash awards. All of the seniors were given pins, according to the number of years that they had been in band, The band gives an annual concert in May. Besides this concert we played before the student body in as- sembly. Also the band played for the March of Dimes program. From the concert band members are chosen to play in the Fulton County Music Festival, The band program for school students is a year round event. Many become outstanding musicians, and go on in music as their life work. f x , ' Ns, Rxstsfs Q - I-in ff an X 1 With the end of the school year, the band members begin to think about the summer marching that is to be done. Mr. Girten makes up a schedule, with a practice every Tuesday night. The band members then start to get in shape for the parades and concerts. The first parade of the season is the Memorial Day parade. Then as the surnnier goes on the band participates in other parades. At the Holland weplaced second. At Jackson, Michigan and Delta we received first ratings. A concert was played in Metamora, and other parades were held in Bryan and Lyons. At the Fulton County Fair the band played a concert in front of the grand stand. Con- nie Rinkle, our faithful druxn rnajor, received a trophy for the best twirler in the county, in stiff competition. Because of their faithfulness to the band and to Mr. Girten, the Band Mother's rewarded the students with a picnic at Pokagan State Park, where swirnrning and games were enjoyed. As school started the band members began their marching practice for the football games. There was a practice held every Tuesday night plus the period set aside for practice during school hours. The banddid some very fast marching and played some very difficult pieces, besides their formations.

After trailing by 14 points at the half, the Bulldogs began to click in the second half and won out in the final hectic minutes. Carl Buehrer tied the score at 61 all with 2 minutes to go, Then two foul shots each by Blayz and Kling and one by Buehrer clinched the champion- ship. Blayz hit for 18 points and Buehrer for 17 in this game. Dunbar was also outstanding. The Swanton Bulldogs defeated the Scott Bulldogs by a one-point margin, 52-51, on the Scott court. After a see saw struggle Langenderfer broke the tie with a foul shot in the last three seconds of playing time to give SHS its second win of the season. T he s e c ond game with Holland was decided in a h e c ti c 3 - minute overtime. The regulation game ended in a 52-52 tie. Buehrer and Carroll came Swanton was eliminated from the sectional tourna- ment when they were defeated by Wauseon, 51-46, in one of their poorest performances of the year. Larr y Dunbar sparkled for the Bulldogs with 21 points but he got little help from his team-mates and that ended the 1952-53 season for SHS . Larry Dunbar was awarded a trophy for proficiency in foul shooting and Robert Carroll received a trophy for being the varsity rebound champion. The Toledo Blade's all M VL first team included Carl Buehrer and R ob e r t B l ayz , and the second team included Jim Mason.

Hills' Baunach hit two fo ul s ho t s with 5 seconds remaining to hand SHS their only league defeat. Blayz collected the highest points made by any player of S HS in any one game in 1952 at the Perrysburg game by racking-up 25 points. The game with this GNC memb er was the best and smoothest game played all year by the Bulldogs who had their fast break working to perfection, and virtually ran to a 69-58 decision. The combined scores of Swanton, 76, and Ros sford, 60, established a record in the Rossford fieldhouse for th e lar g est number of points obtained in any game. During the season Swanton tackled three GNC teams, and defeated them with ease. Besides Rossford and Perrysburg, the Bulldogs also defeated Whitmer of the Great Northern Conference, 64-45. The team's over-all 12 won and 9 lost record was the be st since the 1947-48 season for a SHS cage squad.

This championship is shared with Anthony Wayne, who tied our team for first place with identical 7-1 records, The team started out slow breaking even in the first two games but then they went into a four game winning streak including a victory over Toledo Central, After that the roof caved in as they were upset by Norwalk in the tourna- 50 ment and drubbed by DeVilbiss. Although they had lost two in a row the boys came back and won the last four games and a tie for the M. V,L, crown.

The next two meets were dropped to Maumee and Liberty Center, but not by a. wider margin than eleven points . The 1953 track season ended in a blaze of glory as Jim Mason and Carl Buehrer won the M, V.

A beauty and modeling school has been instituted in Swanton by Miss Donna Franklin. Her top models include Anita Hagerman, Marilyn Matheny, and Bonnie Mohr.
