Seniorian Staff It is with much pride and satisfaction that we, the Senior Class of 1953, present this yearbook to you. After many long and hard hours of work spent on this, "The Seniorianj' we can now look back and see Very plainly that our effort has not been in vain. Within a short time after the beginning of school the Seniorian Staff was chosen by Mr. Gaffney. Allene Kenney was selected Editor-in-Chief with Richard Wiater serving as her assistant. The work progressed rapidly with these two acting as our editors. Under the guidance of Mr. Kitch, Bernadette Cukla, Literary Editor, together with her assistants, Rosann Ebben, Margie Reichert, and Joan Romanowicz furnished the Seniorian with Write-ups. Tom Qualle and Robert Badzinski, two sports enthusiasts, edited the football and basketball sections. No annual would be complete without some art workg to do this Jean Cook was chosen. Pictures are by far the most significant part of any year book. Richard Vanderhyden was our on-the-spot photo- grapher. Delores Parks sat in on our meetings as a Junior Editor to gain experience for the next year's Seniorian. Every one knows that a book cannot be published without financing. Susan Harycki and Armon Schmidt worked together as Business Managers. They did a great deal to provide sufficient funds for the publication of this Seniorian. We were fortunate to have Mr. Gaffney as the advisor of our Seniorian. To- gether with Mr. Kitch, who was Literary Advisor, it was a pleasure working on this yearbook. We hope this - The 1953 Seniorian - fulfills the expectations of all those who leaf through its pages. Page Four I-1Il5'l'Rl1'l0Il Letter To The Student Body It is a happy occasion to commend another Seniorian Staff upon the completion of the 1953 year book. It signalizes the end of another school year and the addition of one more volume to the growing shelf of Seniorians. Every Seniorian published is different with respect to theme and yet there is a common format which prevails. This is in keeping with the accepted standard of good yearbooks. For after all the yearbook is a record of significant events that have occurred during the school year. The year 1952-53 has been a memorable year and thus has provided ample material for another outstanding book. The editor has been fully cognizant of the opportunities offered and has incorporated them into The 1953 Seniorian. I take this opportunity to congratulate the Seniorian Staif and advisors, Mr. Gaffney and Mr. Kitch, upon an outstanding accomplishment - the preparation and publication of The 1953 Seniorian.

At that time we numbered sixty-two, "eager, green, freshiesf' We took initiation in our stride and spent our Freshmen year just getting aquainted with Thorp High School. Our first year passed before us very quickly. In no time we found ourselves "Sophisticated Sophomoresf' The first thing we did was revengefully initiate our innocent successors. We gave them what, we thought, was the most terrible initiation yet. That year the Booster Club honored us when they chose Rosann Ebben, Rosanne Conway, and Margie Reichert as Junior Cheerleaders. Our first year as upper classmen was a very eventful one. We "Jolly Juniors" began a year of much success by winning first place on our Homecoming float. Our Junior Class Play, "Too Sweet For Sixteen," under the direction of Miss Dunn, proved to be very successful. Then came the biggest social event of our high school career. King Tom Qualle and his Queen, Virginia Kinas reigned over one of the most beautiful and most success- ful Proms Thorp has ever had. The theme, "Moonlight and Roses," was beautifully portrayed with an artificial moon, thousands of roses, and a large rock garden. We were justly proud to have three of our classmates, Tom Qualle, Jerry Phillips, and Bob Mertens, on the basketball team that came within one game of the State Tournament. A dream had become a reality. - In September, 1952, we began our last stretch in high school as "Sedate Seniors." We were now the leaders in an institution of learning. Our major task as Seniors was that of publishing a year book. With Allene Kenney accepting the responsibility of Editor-in-Chief we produced, what We think, is one of the finest annuals in the state. Our Senior year was not entirely made up of grave responsibility and hard work. There were the lighter activities and events that provide enjoyment for all, such as, our Senior Class Play, the Christmas Ball, the Girls' Prom, and "Anything Goes." We have now completed a miles-stone in our rocky road of life. We can look back Evitlh satisfaction over four memorable and successful years! together at Thorp High c oo .

Class Prophecy After numerous unsuccessful attempts to get his three dimensional television set focused, Mr. Gaffney relents to an ancient source of information, the news- paper. He picks up the May 5, 1978 issue of the nationally known, Nobel and Pulitzer Prize Winner, "Kitch's Katastrophej' edited by David Kitch, a former fellow-faculty man of his. Incidentally, it has been whispered that this periodical is in the running for the Congo Cultural Citation. After quickly scanning through the first forty- seven pages of Kitch's Political Sorespots, his atten- tion is immediately drawn to the lower left hand corner of the forty-eighth page, where he finds his favorite column, "Believe It or Not," by D. Kitch, Jr. He begins reading enthusiastically. Robert Badzinski, the famous Intelligence Di- rector at the Grand Psychiatric Institute, founded by the famous Neuro Psychiatrist, Dr. Edmund Sabas- tain Grendzinski, left for Las Vegas for a long needed rest. Lenard Burzynski, better known to the public as "The Legs," is now employed by the Piwoni Non- Slip, Non-Slide, Non-Run, Cosmic-Proof, hosiery Corporation. Mr. Burzynski's duties are to convince the ladies that these stockings are Non-Slip, Non- Slide, Non-Run, and Cosmic-Proof. Eugene Norysiewicz, now featured by Barnum Sz Bailey as the Human Cannonball in their daring television show, shocked the entire United States in his last appearance, when he accidently forgot to fasten his safety belt and shot through the top of the big tent, landing in a patch of poison ivy. He is now confined to his bed with a severe rash. The society playboy and heir to the Tinker Toy Industry, Bob Butterfield, was granted a divorce from his tenth wife, Eleanore Scziezor Butterfield, the breathtaking Broadway fan dancer on the grounds of incompatibility. Francis Grabon has organized the Grabon Order of Friars, and is spending his remaining days in constant prayer and penance to atone for his pre- vious wicked, ill-led life. Don Dobrzynski, famed artist, was given a contract by Genevieve Lasiuk, the highway commis- sioner for the State of Wisconsin, to paint the yellow stripe down the center of the new super highway running from Chippewa Falls to Eau Claire. Frances Kmieciak, who has just completed her latest movie, "Water Babe," is now preparing to undertake a deep-sea diving excursion in the Carib- bean waters. Her husband, Richard Vanderhyden, a prominent New York Dentist, hopes she will find an adequate supply of pearls so that he may finish the upper plate for the sensational revival singer, Joe Siegienski, who has captivated Broadway with his newest release, "It's in the Volumes." The Indianapolis Speedway record was broken by the fearless, daring, speed-queen, Kathleen Hazuga. After a startling finish, she rushed into the clutching arms of her husband, Tom Qualle, the leader of the Underworld, alias - the oil can of the big lrnachine, and sighed, "We finally got a getaway car. Susan Harycki, of Ft. Sam Houston, Texas, re- turned from Chicago, Illinois, with her Chesterwhite Hog, Nigger. For the third consecutive year she has presented a prize hog to the National Swine Judge, James Chester Haas, a former student of Thorp High School, who has just completed his best selling book, "How to Raise Rindless Side Pork." Gerald Phillips, sometimes referred to as J. P. Morgan the second, revealed to the press how he made his first billion. It seems the seventeenth year he worked as a janitor for the Truse Slaughtering house, he became quite chummy with the proprieter's lovely and rich daughter, Helen. With her 'encourage- ment and his past knowledge of animal hides, heire- leased a new product to cure falling hair, "Ph1ll1p's Hair Delight." Al Kotecki is working for his second cup of coffee by selling apples on the corner of Skidrow and Madison Street in the Windy City. Richard Teclaw, a Harvard lawyer, is currently working on a Writ of Habeas Corpus to get Irene Jasket, the lady wrestler, out of the cooler, for strangling her opponent in a fit of anger. The City of Thorp is in a mild state of confus- ion, a new business has been introducted and is advertising under the slogan, f'Drains plugged? Try the Con-way." Miss Rosanne Conway, the instigator and chief un-plugger, has added a personal and feminine touch to the unpleasant task by doing the job by herself. Allene Kenney, whose picture has recently ap- peared on the Bull Durham Tobacco packages, has been traveling the United States with .the rodeo rid- ing wild bulls. As you notice by the pictures, travel has certainly broadened her. l The new sensation, who succeeded Johnny Weiss- miller as Tarzan, Don Nevela, has been offered a million dollar contract by Metropolitan Opera to sing the part of the Toreador in Carmen. I Armon Schmidt, now luxuriously residing on the island of Capri, has recently opened a Honeymoonerfs resort. His first set of lovebirds was Ruby Buss, presi- dent of the Lonely Hearts Club in New York, and Florian Szatalowicz, who was voted the most eligible bachelor in the United States. Miss Margie Reichert narrowly escaped death when the Nitroglycerine truck, she had been driving for 24 hours, accidently left the road and hit a farmers cow, Miss Reichert got a big bang out of this incident. Sylvia Cieslek explained to a group of professors recently her new book, "The Birds and the Bees." The professors were astounded at the knowledge she has acquired from taking a four year course in Animal Husbandry. Richard Wiater has lived up to the expectations of his classmates and teachers. He is now working for the Federal Government in Washington, D.C. His 24 hour job is replacing burnt out light bulbs in the Pentagon. I Senate action for the bill, Butrym Beef Price Supports, introduced by the wealthy Texas rancher, Jeanette Butrym, has been delayed due to the fili- bustering by Norbert Teclaw, the proprietor of Sam's Corner Fish Market.

Page Thirty-seven CURTIS TROPHY Curtis Drive This year, once again, the Curtis Drive proved to be a huge success. We surpassed our quota of 32500, ending up with a grand total of S2,941.61. As in previous years the Freshmen and Juniors com- peted against the Seniors and Sophomores. When the drive Was over, We found that the Freshmen-Junior team was the victor with a total of' 351,398.04 The Sophomore- Senior team had 351,315.34 The Juniors finished in first place among the classes. This made them the Winners of 6B50.00. Top salesman honors went to Dorothy Badzinski, this year. Dorothy's sales amounted to 213164.25 This record will definitely stand as a challenge to future students. Justin Jakowicz was the lucky Winner of the Bulova Wrist Watch in the drawing. There was also a drawing' for an individual salesmanship trophy. All top salesmen who had sold S30 or more were eligible to compete in this event. Marylin Plansky became the possessor of the trophy.

Student Council Now in its third year, the Student Council of Thorp High School has become a very active working body. Officers of the nine-member council were Tom Qualle, Presi- dent, Allene Kenney, Vice-President, and Julia Kaminski, Secretary. Other members were Diane Zaborowski, Mary Ellen Pabich, Neil Broeren, Ronald Schultz, Pat Maslow- ski, and Arnold Zaborowski. Mr. Gaffney ably served as faculty advisor. Allene Kenney, Tom Qualle, Neil Broeren, and Pat Maslowski were delegates to the State Student Council Convention held in Eau Claire, October 18 and 19. Here such things were discussed as, "problems Within small schools," "Vandalism," and Hstudent cooperation." Allene Kenney also attended the National Student Council Convention last summer in Evanston, Illinois. She was chosen on her leadership ability and her past experience with Student Council Work. Allene returned with many new ideas and suggestions for our council. Nineteen-fifty-two being an election year, the council emphasized one's voting duty to his government. They sponsored an Election Poster Contest, in which many students took part. In a mock election held November 4, it was found that the majority of the high school students voted Republican. i A constitution for the Student Council was a project successfully completed this year. The major project undertaken by the council this year was that of.writing a handbook for high school students. Upon its completion this book contained much information that will be of use to the students, especially freshmen. Page Forty-one 1952 W P, ' Homecoming l l- l f ii l l K.

Assistant Librarians This year the Assistant Librarians took the place of, what had formerly been, the Library Club. These girls, under the guidance of Miss Dunn, offer their services one period of the day to work in the Libra1'y. Besides being a help to their fellow I students they also gain valuable experience for themselves. The Student Librarians assist in the cataloging and accessioning' of books and I posting magazines and newspapers. With the aid of these students the High School . Library has been quite efiicient. 3 i 1 l l l l l l l l Page Forty-four I II IETICS V First Row: Donray Izydorek, Gene Zaske.

Page Forty-seven HOMECOMING GAME Football Under the direction of Coach I-Ialdy, who has proved himself to be one of the outstanding football coaches in Northern Wisconsin, the Thorp Cards began pre-season football practice on August 18. Though the number of candidates to report was small, the boys were willing to work and make sacrifices necessary for a winning team. For three weeks they practiced, doing tiresome calisthenics and drills with spirit and determination. This hard work in the summer was soon to prove its worth in the coming season. Sparked by the outstanding efforts of our Captain, Jake Phillips, we became the first team in the history of Thorp High School to come through a football season undefeated and untied. During this spectacular season, which was high- lighted by a 26 to 0 win over our arch-rival, Stanley, Thorp had the honor of placing two players on the All-State Honor Rolls. Nearly every week the name of Jake Phillips could be found on this list of star performers in the State. Harley Nerdrum, next years captain, also received mention on the list of Honor winners. -' At the end of the season Phillips was placed on the "Eau Claire Leader's" "All-Northwest" grid team. Harley Nerdruni and Tom Qualle also received mention. SEPTEMBER 12 - In our first game of the 1952 season we journeyed to Osseo where we started out our season with a 19 to 6 win over a strong Osseo team. The first touchdown of the season was scored when Gus Haas, Thorp's outstanding fullback, crack- ed over in the first few minutes of play. Phillips converted to make the score 7-0. Qualle got a TD in the second period and Phillips added a clincher in the third. SEPTEMBER 18 - Entering conference play at Cornell, the Thorpmen rolled up an impressive 27 to 7 win. Thorp marched for a score the first time they got their hands on the ball with Tom Qualle going the last 20 yards into paydirt. Jake Phillips gave the fans a thrill they will never forget when he broke loose on a quarterback sneak and raced 60 yards for a touchdown. Phillips and Qualle each added another marker and Phillips kicked three out of four conversions. SEPTEMBER 25 - In the first game on our home field the now red-hot Cards downed a stubborn Inde- pendence team 28 to 6. Jake Phillips had another spectacular night as he scored one touchdown and kicked all four extra points. Gus Haas gave the fans something to cheer about when he carried half the Independence team over the goal line from 25 yards out. Tom Qualle broke loose on a 45 yard scoring jaunt and later he passed to end Harley Nerdrum for another TD. N erdrum's touchdown came on the play called H27 running pass," which became a stand- ard in the games to come. OCTOBER 2 - Disaster for Owen! With Jake Phillips and Tom Qualle setting the pace and a mar- velous line doing a clean up job up front, Thorp sent Owen home with a 51 to 0 defeat. Phillips start- ed the whole thing out when he made a beautiful 80 yard touchdown return of the opening kickoff. Jake scored twice more on runs of 11 and 53 yards, and kicked three extra points. Qualle also scored three times on runs of 3, 10, and ci14fyards anddflipiqnid a scoring pass to Ner rum goo or 45 yar s. e game was highlighted in the final quarter when Len Zukowski burst through center for a 45 yard touch- down run and became "Mr, Touchdown." OCTOBER 10 - Thorp beats Gilman 1 to 0. fforfeitj Page Forty-eight Football OCTOBER 16 - Cadott, displaying a fine brand of football, came as close as anybody could to the Rampaging Redmen as they bowed 21 to 6. Thorp scored the first time they had the ball, marching from our own 43 to the Cadott 2 where big Gus Haas powered over. Phillips converted to make it 7-0. Taking to the air for the second touchdown, Phillips passed to Turenne from twelve yards out and Rog stepped into the end zone. Passing again, Phillips hit Qualle on a play covering 45 yards and scoring. Phillips converted both times to make it 21. OCTOBER 23 - STANLEY! Thorp journeyed to Stanley in one of the most publicized games in the State. Both teams were unbeaten and both teams boasted speedy backfields and stalwart lines. Stanley received and after an exchange of punts which put the Orioles deep in our territory the stubborn Thorp line began to hold. Then Harley Nerdrum saved the day for the Cards when he recovered a Stanley fumble on our 5 yard line. With Qualle and Phillips throwing, Thorp marched in the second period for a score. Qualle went six yards around end to the 2 and cracked over on the next play making it six to nothing. Near the end of the half Phillips made a beautiful interception of a Stanley pass and re- turned it 39 yards to the Stanley 21, but Stanley held at that point. Both teams were scoreless in the third quarter but in the final period Thorp began to roll. With Phillips sparking a touchdown drive Thorp scored on Gene Zaske's pass to Harley Nerdrum. Zaske scored on a short buck over center and the final counter came on a pass from Qualle to Zaske in the end zone. The Thorp line played the best game of the season against Stanley. To try to name the wonderful plays exhibited by our linemen would iill ten pages. OCTOBER 31 - Homecoming Day 1952! The un- defeated Cards made it a perfect season before a large homecoming crowd by trouncing Neillsville 52 to 0. It was a perfect afternoon for football and Thorp proved it by displaying some of the best foot- ball seen around here as far back as anyone can remember. "Homer" Vanderhyden blocked a punt early in the game and on the first Thorp play from scrimmage Tom Qualle raced 17 yards and scored. The rout was on! In the course of the game Phillips and Qualle scored and passed for touchdowns almost at will. Tom scored four touchdowns and Jake three and they each passed for two more. The last score came when Qualle, appearing to be trapped, raced back the way he had come and iiipped to Gordie Hansen in the end zone. The rugged Thorp line, with Jack Dallas doing a terrific job at backer-up, held Neillsville without a first down and a minus seven yards rushing. Congratulations to Coach Haldy and the boys on a job well done and a host of records for Thorp teams to shoot at in the future. CLOVERBELT CHAMPIONSHIP FOOTBALL TROPHY Page Forty-nine ' DONALD RUBISCH Rubisch Memorial Trophy In the memory of Don Rubisch, Stewart North has dedicated a beautiful trophy to be placed in our trophy case. Mr. North was Grundy's coach all through high school, and through his diligent coach- ing, Grundy developed into an expert center. This trophy will remain in our trophy case and each year the team's "Most Improved Player" will have his name engraved on it. The player will be selected by a vote of his teammates, his coaches, and two prom- inent business men. This year Harley Nerdrum was chosen to have his name engraved on the memorial. We Wish to thank Mr. North for this trophy. We hope that in years to come it will inspire boys to work harder in basketball. Dedication We, the class of 1953, proudly dedicate the basketball section of this "Seniorian" to the late Donald "Grundy" Rubisch. Grundy, as he was known to all his friends and classmates, was probably the greatest basketball player ever to wear the colors of Thorp High School. His individual scoring records for Thorp will probably stand for many years to come. He was a Wonderful Captain and he led the basketball team of '51-52 to an Eastern Division Cloverbelt title and on to the finals of the Spooner Sectional, where Thorp was beaten by a powerful Superior squad. Grundy was a good student and was liked by all who associated with him. It was a cruel fate that took his life in an auto accident in early November of 1952. Had he lived, Grundy would have carried the name of our school to even greater heights, as he was planning to enter college at the time of his death. His jersey number, "25," has been retired and placed in the trophy case, never again to be worn by a Thorp basketball player.

Basketball '52-53 Turning in their cleats for gym shoes and their pads for trunks and jerseys, the Cards began to pre- pare for their 52-53 basketball season. With Captain Jake Phillips, Tom Qualle, Bob Mertens, and Roger Turenne returning letter winners to form a nucleus, Coach Haldy began to form a winning combination. Big Bill Urban filled in well at center and Harley Nerdrum rapidly improved to fill a forward post. "Butch" Izydorek and "Pee Wee" Badzinski proved to be able reserves as the season progressed. After a heart breaking loss to Chetek the Cards began to find themselves and displayed a line brand of basketball throughout the season. Winning all their Eastern Cloverbelt games, the Cardinal Clad Warriors went on to beat Fall Creek and take home their fifth Cloverbelt trophy in the last six years. In their bid for State honors the Thorp Cardin- als reached the Sectional Tournament for the second Basketball Nov. 21 - CHETEK AT THORP - The Cards got a bad start to their 52-53 season when they lost a heart breaker to Chetek 42 to 41.

NOV. 25 - THORP AT LOYAL - After losing their first game of the season the Cards came back to beat an out-classed Loyal team. Hitting the nets for a 15 to 4 first quarter lead, the Cards were never threatened, as the reserves played most of the second half and went on to win 62 to 27. Tom Qualle paced the winners with 27 points. straight year - only to lose out to a strong Eau Claire ball club, which went on to take State con- solation honors. The Cards have nothing to be ashamed of, as their season ended with an impressive 19 and 8 record. Leading his teammates to the Cloverbelt and District titles, Captain Jake Phillips scored 428 points for a 15.9 average. He was followed by Tom Qualle with 416 for 15.4 average and Bill Urban with 354 and a 13.1 average. We say congratulations to Coaches Haldy and Amundson for a job well done and congratulations to the boys who worked so hard to give Thorp another great team in a long line of Champions. Many records were set by this team and the boys who played on it. It is our hope that the teams of the future will continue to play the kind of bas- ketball that this team made famous.

Cheerleaders "We're backing the Cardinals 100W !" When you hear this yell, you know it can be none other than the snappy Thorp Cheerleaders trying to get up some pep and school spirit to back their team on to victory. They have added that little extra that some- times meant the difference between victory and defeat. The Cheerleaders on the '52-53 squad are Rosanne Conway, Rosann Ebben, and Margie Reichert, who are graduating, and Margie Cook and Marylin Plansky, who will be returning next year. Besides the A-Team Cheerleaders, there are the B-Team Cheerleaders who have backed the B-Team to a very victorious season.

For the past several years our high school has been overcrowded and, to a certain extent, inadequately furnished. This problem will be remedied by a new addition and a complete remodeling job, which is planned to be finished by the second week in September. A new domestic science room will be added on the ground, or first floor. A completely furnished cafeteria will be made out of what is now, the agriculture room and the laboratory. A kindergarten will be added on the ground Hoor. The Superinten- dent's office, consisting of' an outer office and a waiting room, will also occupy the first floor. On the second floor there will be teachers' restrooms and a girls' restroom. New rooms for the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades will be built. Girls' lockers for both the grade and high school students will be added. A modern science laboratory, adequately furnished will be on- the third fioor. Here there will also be new social science rooms and a boys' washroom and lockers. A new domestic science room will be added on the ground, or first, fioor. A a new ticket oiiice will be added. A fire tower, which will run from the first to the top fioor, will be erected in the south east corner of the building. There will be fire doors in every room. A new heating plant will be installed. The English room, library, and health room will be remodeled. From this brief glimpse of our new school it is obvious that it will alter the previously overcrowded and inadequate situation. We wish to express our appreciation to everyone concerned in providing these modern conveniences for our school system. Page Fifty-eight Page Sixty Page Sixty -one 1. The Lucky Winner . . . 2.
