It is with a mixed feeling of pride and relief that wc, the graduating Class of
1954, present our Seniorian to you. Many long hours have been spent in the planning
and preparation of our annual for publication. We, as members of the Seniorian Staff,
feel humble and honored at being entrusted with the task of preparing the Seniorian
This year's staff was chosen by Mr. Gaffney soon after the opening of school.
Pat Maslowski was selected as Editor-in-Chief, assisted by Roger Turenne. In charge
of writeups, Dorothy Boardman was placed as Literary Editor. We feel that she and
her assistants, Julia Muenich, Beverly Polansky, and Genevieve Guell, have done an
excellent job in the Literary department. The underclassmen were ably represented by
Ruth Bogumill, who served as Junior Editor. Our Art Editor, Margie Cook, and our
Sports Editor, Gene Zaske, have added much to our annual by expertly handling their
Everyone knows that pictures make the annual. With this in mind, Arnie Smith
and Dolores Parks were chosen as photographers. On the surface, it would appear that
that is all that's necessary for the completion of any annual, but there is always a
minor problem of money. To keep us suiiiciently supplied with the necessary cash, Tom
Hirsch, as Business Manager, proficiently handled the finances.
Through the able guidance and assistance of Mr. Gaffney, our advisor, and
Hirzy, our Literary advisor, the job of editing the Seniorian was made much easier
and pleasanter for the staff.
VVe wish to thank the members of the faculty who so willingly co-operated in
any way they possibly could. We hope that you will enJoy looking through this, our
Seniorian for 1954, as much as the Editor and the staff have enlioyed bringing it to you.

Letter To The Student Body
April 19, 1954
As another school year nears the end, The 1954 Seniorian is taking form.
Activities around the publications oifice indicate a rush to meet the deadline with
editorial copy. Soon the Editor-in-Chief and her staff may breathe a little easier as
the final copy goes to the printer.
It is always interesting to anticipate a new year book. Naturally the year book
mirrors the ideas and philosophy of the Editorial Staff. Recorded in script and picture
are the significant high lights of the school year. Later to be perused and recalled as
former classmates gather for reunion. It is, indeed, a worthy activity and one that
requires long hours of exacting planning and preparation.
I know that the planning and preparation for the 1954 Seniorian has been
thorough and complete. I take great pleasure in congratulating the Staff, Mr. Gaffney
and Mr. Hirzy on a job well done. You can be justly proud of your accomplishment as
The 1954 Seniorian takes its place among the Seniorians of the past.
To Mr. Gadney, Mr. Hirzy and the Staff' a sincere thanks.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
We, of the Senior class, entered Thorp High
School on September 4, 1950 as a group of 72 timid
but eager Freshmen. Aided by Mrs. Giere, our class
advisor, we proudly elected our class officers.
A big event for us as Freshmen was our initia-
tion. As frightened as is possible, we suffered the
consequences without losing a single student in the
Of course, we were all eager for the declamation
contest to get underway, and it ended gloriously
when Marylin Plansky placed first in the school
Having completed our first year, we returned as
enthusiastic, ambitious Sophomores. Under the guid-
ance of Miss Dunn, we again elected our class officers.
This year we were on the giving end of the
initiation, and we really did it up in style.
The Booster Club honored us by choosing Mar-
gie Cook and Marylin Plansky as Junior cheerleaders.
With a busy year ahead of us, we entered school
as hard-working Juniors.
Mr. Amundson guided us through this rugged
year. As our first business, the class ofhcers were
elected. Roger Turenne was chosen to be president.
This meant that he and the Queen of his choice,
Josephine Hmielak, were honored to reign over the
annual Junior Prom.
During the year, Betty Ann Neiman was chosen
as a Junior Cheerleader, while Margie Cook and
Marylin Plansky entered the Senior cheerleading
Next on the list, the Junior Class Play, "Stranger
in The Night," directed by Miss Dunn was presented.
Since this was our first chance as actors, we felt we
performed the feat well.
Soon it became time for our Junior Prom. With
"Stairway To The Stars," as our theme, music by
Howard Sturtz, and enhanced by a beautifully deco-
rated auditorium with a large gathering, we thought
this was the nicest and most enjoyed prom staged at
Our long awaited Senior year finally arrived.
This has brought about many responsibilities for us.
We helped sponsor the Homecoming Dance, the Sen-
ior Class play, "Maid to Order," the Christmas Ball,
the Girls' Prom, and the Seniorian.
Perhaps the greatest responsibility was the
edition of the 1954 Seniorian. With Pat Maslowski
as editor and a fine staff to assist her, Mr. Gaffney
as Chief advisor, and Mr. Hirzy, Literary advisor,
we feel, and trust that you will feel, that our Senior-
ian maintains the high standards of those produced
in the past.
We, the graduating class of 1954, have now
layed the first, and perhaps the heaviest stone in our
path of life. We will strive for only the choicest
stones and make our path one on which we can be
proud to travel.

Professor Hirzy, now enjoying' his retirement in Eidsvold, the beautiful suburb
of Thorp, decided to fly to the World's Fair of 1979 at Chicago.
Leonard Zukowski, P1'OfCSS0l"S chauffeur, drove him to Uncle Louie's Airport,
now owned by Arnie Smith. Professor Hirzy purchased his ticket from Elaine Kodl
and was on his way to the plane when he heard someone yell, "Extra! Extra!" Of
course, it was Jimmy Pabich still trying to make his million by selling papers.
He boarded the plane and was greeted by the smiling hostess, Harriet Malecki.
l.Iuch to his surprise the plane was piloted by Alex Grendzinfski and co-piloted by his
charming wife, the foi mer Pat Maslowski. The Professor was resting comfortably and
looking out the window when suddenly he saw Ed Ciolkosz drift by with his parachute
and rifie. Ed was just bird hunting the modern way.
The time passed rapidly and he soon found himself at his destination, Chicago.
From the airport he took a taxi, driven by Donald Zukowski, to the Van Loo Hotel,
owned by Don and his wife, the former Gertrude Marek. Hotel Clerk. Gene Zaske. gave
him his key to room number 70589 and Rog Turenne, Bell Hop, carried Professor Hirzy's
six suitcases to his suite.
Professor was fascinated by the head chamber maid, Julia Muenich, who was
cleaning' his room at the wrong time. fOr was it the right time?J
Delicious food, cooked by Chef Ed Natzke, was served to him by the head waiter,
Peter Lukasiewicz. The Professor retired early after an enjoyable day. He was awakened
early the next morning at 8:00 A. M. by a sharp knocking' at the door. It was only Toni
Hirsch, making his daily rounds winding the hotel clocks.
Page Twenty 'one
Immediately after breakfast the Professor made his way to the fair grounds.
He walked up and down the midway, not knowing what to do first. Even though the
lady wrestling match between Nancy Giwojna and Beverly Polansky fascinated him,
he decided to go to the horse races. Professor Hirzy placed his money on Harley
Nerdrumys, "Smiling Bill," ridden by Roger Hoffman, but the crowd's favorite "Morgy
Mick" ridden by Bill Urban and owned by Butch Izydorek, the city morgue proprietor,
again placed first.
The next attraction that caught his eye was the beauty contest. The judge, Ray
Gutowski, named the four finalists as Florence Kolodziej, Lorraine Tomkowiak, Phyllis
Zurakowski, and Doris Reichert. He didn't have time enough to stay until the winner
was announced, for the stock car races were soon to get under way. The races were
featuring Guell's Grave Gamblers, known world wide for their death defying driving.
Professor happened to have sat down by one of the more successful alumni of our class,
Donald Rogalski, who is a prominent lawyer in Rogalskiville.
It was extremely hot that day and after the races, Professor went for a glass of
Walter's Beer, which was served to him by Joe Czernicki. Incidentally, he and his wife,
the former Oleta Kramicz, own the Walter's Beer Corporation.
VVhat's this over here? Of course, it's Cy's Side Show with acts from different
lands. His main feature is Dolores Parks, Estelle Pawlak, and Marylin Plansky, the
world famous hula dancing trio from Hawaii. Over in the corner is that great juggler
from Italy, Louis Burzynski and his assistant, Chester Karpinski. By the way, they
are now juggling account books.
As he was leaving, the Professor had difficulty in getting out the door past
the fat woman, Margie Cook.
Once again Professor Hirzy was off down the midway bound for the bullfight.
The main attraction was Marion Andruszkiewicz and his bouncing Brahma. Bouncing
Brahma was a vicious bull and Sir Marion was unable to control his vitality. Soon
Marion was carried off the arena on a stretcher with his fiance, Joan Langiewicz and
an attending doctor at his side. The Professor felt he had enough of this manslaughter
and made his way forward to the fortune teller's association. Dorothy Boardman, the
head fortune-teller, directed him to the witches, Lucy Soborowicz and Audrey Rhyner,
who together told Professor's fortune.
To climax his day at the fair, the Professor took in the Paris fashions and was
surprised to see the three models were Caroline Szczech, Kathie Papierniak, and Darlene
Leaving the fair, he walked down Sobol Avenue, named after Bob, the man
One of the first things that caught his eyes was Depa's Used Car Lot, owned
by the master salesman of Used Cars, John Depa.
Right next door was Pool's Pit, specializing in the serving of prunes, owned
by Bill Pawlak.
Business was booming and while waiting for Ray Stroinski, the headwaiter, to
give him a table, he bought a package of cigarettes from Valencia Marek, cigarette
girl, who was famous in her trade.
After dinner, the Professor went to the back room where "Rake 'em and Take
'em" Bill Darge led him to the roulette wheel. After playing for over five hours he
cashed in his chips at the door with the checkout girl, Betty Ann Neiman, who counted
out his winnings.
Feeling that he had a fine time, Professor Hirzy started back to the hotel. On
his way he was tapped on the shoulder by Arnie Zaborowski, who asked him for a
After returning to the hotel, he packed his suitcase and took a plane home.
His happy thought of home was soon changed when Marion Sierocuk met him
at the plane to collect for past due bills. Mr. Sierocuk represented the John and John
Bill Collecting Agency, operated by John Smigaj and John Larson.
After returning home, Professor Hirzy took a week's rest. During this time
he thought about the people that he had met on his way to the fair. Strangely enough,
he had known all of them before in the graduating class of 1954.

We, at Thorp High School, have learned that it is almost impossible to be good
citizens without being good, worth-while Christians. We feel that it is necessary to
know the truth about the Author of our rights and the norms which he meant us to
follow. Our four freedoms come to us from the God which our Constitution recognizes.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Qualle and the Board of
Education for allowing us one hour a week during which we can learn these truths
which are so important to our spiritual life, Fathers Piekarski and Zoromski of St.
Hedwig's and Father Muckerheide of St. Bernard's for so ably and efficiently in-
structing us in this significant phase of our education.

In behalf of Father Piekarski, Father Muckerheide, and myself, I wish to
sincerely congratulate the graduating class of 1954. It was our great privilege in
instructing the larger portion of Thorp High School and it is my earnest prayer that
you carry into practice what you have now learned. Please always remember, whatever
you do, you are not doing it alone. It is always 'God and myselff
May God shower His choicest blessings upon each and every member of the
Class of 1954. You have shown wonderful spirit and given a fine example throughout
your years in Thorp High - carry that same spirit throughout life, if you do, that
life will be worthwhile living.
My heartiest congratulations with a sincere wish of future health and success.

Beginning their first year as upper classmen, the Juniors started the year's
activities by electing the following class officers under the guidance of Mr. Amundson
and Mr. Witziz Neil Broeren, Presidentg Robert Benzschawel, Vice-Presidentg and
Kathleen Badzinski, Secretary-Treasurer. Richard Alger and Ruth Bogumill were
elected to represent their class on the Student Council.
For Homecoming Festivities, John Maier was chosen attendant and we were well
represented in the parade by a beautiful float that placed first.
Several boys took an active part in sports this year, and the following received
their T's: Neil Broeren, Robert Benzschawel, Carl Johnson, John Maier, and Justin
Jakowiez in football, Gordie Hanson, Richard Alger and Richard Jarocki in basketball.
The Junior paper, Thorp Hi-Sign, was edited by Nancy Lindquist and Kathleen
Badzinski, with Mr. Wenninger acting as advisor. The paper was published bi-monthly
and enjoyed immensely by the readers.
At the end of their first semester, Ruth Bogumill, Annette Hokkanen, Richard
Alger, Lillian Maziarka, and Estelle Wargolet placed their names on the honor roll.
"Arsenic and Old Lace," a mystery-comedy was presented by the Junior Class
and directed by Mr. Wenninger. A very large audience attended.
With "Madame ButterHy" as the theme for the Junior Prom, 'the class worked
industriously for the big event which was held on Saturday, May 1. With music by
Billy Uthemier, and Neil Broeren and Cathy Conway as King and Queen, another
successful prom is again history.
After an eventful year filled with successes, the class of 1955 is looking forward
to summer vacation and will return as dignified Seniors next fall.

As in other years, we, a class of seventy-nine students, entered Thorp High

overcame this and established our place in the school.

The Speech Class again prepared the Armistice Day program under the direction
of Mr. Wenninger. It featured a one act play, "The Unkown Soldier," which took place
at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Many of his possible acquaintances through life
confessed the wrongs they had done him by encouraging war. At the climax of the play
the Spirit of Christianity told them they must forget their past doings and unite to
prevent future war.
The band participated in the program playing music appropriate for the occasion.

The trophy, given to the student whose name was drawn from

The Student Council was organized 4 yea1's ago to demonstrate democratic prin-

Since the president of the council is to be a Senior, 3 students are chosen from
the Senior Class to serve on the council, and two students are chosen from each of the
This yearls work began by electing Bill Urban as President, Richard Alger for
Vice-President and Betty Neiman as Secretary-Treasurer.
Guided by Mr. Gaffney, the council completed many successful projectsg the
main one was the bringing about of noonday movies.
Suggestions for improvements in the school are collected by the members, brought
up at the meetings and acted upon. This not only gives the students a chance to prove
themselves as fine citizens and good leaders, but also makes our school a better place
in which to live and work.
To arrange for the annual Homecoming festivities, two members of each class

Under the direction and supervision of Mr. Boehm and Miss Olsen, this com-
mittee was broken down into smaller committees and each member was in charge of a
certain phase of preparation. -
Upon the shoulders of these committee members fell the responsibility of such
things as obtaining firewood for the bonfire, arranging the parade, getting judges,
selecting the orchestra, and many other behind the scene items.
We feel that the members of this year's committee did a commendable job, which
was illustrated by the proficient handling of another successful Homecoming.

"Stranger In The Night"
On April 23, 1953, the Class of 1954 presented
their Junior class play. This presentation was a
three act mystery-comedy entitled 'tStranger In The
The plot was centered around the two co-owners
of the Boulevard Hotel Book and Gift Shop, played
by Marylin Plansky and Beverly Polansky. A murder
was to take place in the hotel where the shop was
located, and the murderer, who turned out to be the
house detective, was to get the identity of his victim
from one of the gifts in the shop. Gene Zaske comes
along at the right time and prevents the deed. The
plot was generously sprinkled with humor and in-
cluded everything from a romantic book written
under a mysterious pen name to the appearance of
a lady wrestler, played by Kathie Papierniak, mak-
ing her entrance at a most opportune moment. The
play was under the direction of Miss Dunn, assisted
by Mr. Wenninger.
"Maid To Qrdern
"Maid To Order," a three-act comedy, was presented by the class of '5-1 on

Mrs. Hirsch was helped with her Work by the club members who acted as
assistant librarians. The main duties of the assistant librarians were to check out
books and magazines during their library periods, to assist the students in finding
reference materials, and to keep the library neat and clean and the shelves in order
at all times.
By being assistant librarian, not only is it beneficial to the school, but a lot of
valuable experience is gained for ourselves.

"Stop Thorp's Powerhouse." As the season start-
ed, that seemed to be the necessary slogan for all
of our opponents. With Coach Haldy at the reins,
our boys set out to answer that battle cry.
Things did not look very heartening at first,
because the conference as a whole was much strong-
er and we had some gaping' holes to fill in our line
up. But the team set to work with vigor and deter-
mination, and proved their right to be called
MR. HALDY MR. AMI'NDsoN
l'ou1'l1 Asxzxfmii' Couell
Although the season started dismally with a
loss, the new boys received valuable experience they
needed and fought through the rest of the season
without another loss.
The season was highlighted by our win over
a favored Cadott team that guaranteed us a share of
the title. Up to that time the "Hornets" had not been
scored on and were undefeated and untied. With the
line blocking furiously, the backs running hard, and
some brilliant kicking, the Cards rocked Cadott back

on their heels to the tune of 9-7.
After their outstanding effort against Cadott,
the boys suffered a letdown and Stanley fought them
to a 6-6 tie in the Homecoming game. However, it
gave Thorp its second straight Cloverbelt Title.
Ed Ciolkosz and Butch Izydorek brought back
further honors to our team as they were named to
the first and second "All-Northwest" grid teams
All in all, it was a highly successful season, and
although next year's team will miss the services of
such outstanding Seniors as Rog Turenne, DonRay
Izydorek, Harley Nerdrum, Bryon Bogumill, Leonard
Zukowski, Gene Zaske, Roger Hoffman, Peter Lu-
kasiewisz, Ed Ciolkosz, and Bill Pawlak, we are sure
that they will carry on in the Thorp High tradition
of fine sportsmanship and bring' even more honors
to our school.

A: our boys reported for their first basketball practice, they knew what was
expected oi them, for in order to live up to Thorp's tradition of winning basketball
teams, they would have to come through with another exceptional season.
As in football, the caliber of the conference was higher than it had been in pre-
vious years, and we were playing much stronger non-conference opponents. XYith
otanlev as our rival for lst place in our division of the Cloverbelt, we set to work to
tiring nome the conference championship. As the season progzressed, our team topped
some very strong opponents while losing to teams considered to be the best in the area.
After splitting with Stanley in our regular season games, we played them for
the honors in our division. Losing a heart-breaker with a score of 59 to 5-3 in an
overtime, Stanley was eligible to play for top honors.
As the team hit the tournament trail, we looked for a possibility of reaching
the sectional and maybe even state. After winning our first game with an improved
Loyal five, the Cards lost to a tall, rangy, fast-moving Greenwood team.
Thus the curtain was drawn on another fine season of play.

Thorp's basketball future appears to be rosy, as the members of this year's "B"
Squad ran through, up and over most of their opponents.
Since the future stars are found in the "B" Squad, one can get a glimpse of
Thorp's Varsity of the future by looking at this year's "B" team.
By observing' this year's "B" team's play and standings, you can readily see that
the Varsity team of the future will take its place among the many fine teams of the past.
We say congratulations and best of luck in the future.
