SENIORIAN STAFF 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 for publication. 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 departments. 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.

A 1 -. ,- .1 Letter To The Student Body Thorp, Wisconsin 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.

'X ww Mr THOMAS Hmscn, I'o-esiflent ROGER HOFFMAN, Vice-Piresiflent BETTY ANN NEIMAN, Secretary 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 torture. 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 finals. 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 section. 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 school. 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. Farewell, Thorp High School, Farewell.

Class Prophecy 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 Frese. Leaving the fair, he walked down Sobol Avenue, named after Bob, the man of concrete. 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 quarter. 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. Page Twenty -twd Religious Instructions 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. sh-nmzmil FATHER FRANCIS PIEKARSKI FATHER HERBERT ZOROMSKI FATHER ARNoLo lVll'CKI-JRHFIDI Sf H0!,Zl'Z..Q'S C'r1H1oI1'r' C'll1l7'l'fI Sf.

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. Csigneclb FATHER HERBERT P.

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.

They elected Jon Pitt as President, Joan Grucelski, Vice- President, and Mary Ellen Pabich, Secretary-Treasurer. Then came the time to put the green Freshmen into their places. The initiation was regarded as a great success by all concerned, and the Freshmen came back with a grand return party. Homecoming was the next big event of the year. James Biser was chosen by the class as its attendant and with "Sailing To Victory" as our Hoat theme, we won second place in the parade. James Biser, David Guell, Roger Benzschawel, Paul Harycki, Bill Harycki, Don- ald Ryniec, Eugene Wilhelm, and John Klick represented our class in football, those in basketball included: James Biser, David Guell, Paul Harycki, Bill Harycki, Donald Ryniec, James Schauer, Rex Schmidt, and Eugene Wilhelm. We were proud to have Mary Ellen Pabich, Ruth Smigaj, and Joan Grucelski to represent us in forensics. Mary Ellen won second in the school serious declamation contest and traveled to Stanley and Eau Claire to participate in the area contests. Diane Zaborowski and James Biser represented the Sophomore Class in the Student Council. The Class of '56 led by Bernice Butterfield, who became the high salesman, did its best to make the Curtis Drive a success. We also took an active part in many other extracurricular activities.

With Mr. Hirzy, our class advisor, we met and elected our officers for the year. We chose Danny Winger, Presidentg Jean Mattes, Vice Presidentg and Kitty Kenney, Secretary. We also chose Ann Hedler and Elaine Fortek to represent the Freshman Class on the Student Council. The Sophomore Class held the annual initiation for us on October 16th and made us official members of Thorp High School, and we responded with the usual return party. Ann Hedler was chosen Junior Cheerleader by the Booster Club. The Freshman Class is very proud of its accomplishments in the Curtis Drive, for we worked hard and came out on top under the leadership of our captains Ann Hedler, Kitty Kenney, and Ray Price. Our class chose Keith Glasshof to be Homecoming Attendant. In the Freshman Declamation contest, Cathy Conway and Kitty Kenney tied for first place and will have their names engraved on the trophy. Others taking part in the finals were: Ralph Sherberg, Susan Rusch, Jolanta Mikolainis, Alice Giwojna, and John Klouda. We took a great interest in all sports and had boys out for football, including Don Soderberg, who earned a T. Several boys also went out for basketball and baseball. We were also active in other extracurricular activities. We felt that we have made a good start and look forward to the future soberly, yet eagerly.

It also presented a solo and ensemble recital on March 30, in which twenty-nine solos and ensembles were brought forth to the public. On April 2, this same group journeyed to Eau Claire to participate in the District Music Festival. The pre-festival tournament, consisting of bands from the surrounding area, was held in Thorp this year. This tournament is held each year to prepare for the district tournament. The band also took part in the concert and parade at the Music Festival in Eau Claire on May 8. The band will lose 10 students through graduation this year.

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.

Booster Club Under the guidance of Mr. William Witzl, the Booster Club again took its place as one of the more important clubs in our extracurricular system. Our school spirit is hinged on the activities of our Booster Club, for here is where the cheerleaders are chosen, skits for pep meetings prepared, and new yells are learned, among other things. Members of the Booster Club sold Homecoming Pins as well as pencils with the schedule of the basketball season engraved on them. Our Senior Cheerleaders this year were Margie Cook, Betty Neiman, and Marylin Plansky. Ann Hedler, Jackie Hedler. Ruth Smigaj, and Maxine Turenne backed our B Team.

However, even with the inevitable support of the Freshmen, Thorp High School was unable to top this mark, but the receipts at the end of the drive showed a respectable fE2,6T'T.49. The high Salesman for the 1953-1954 season was Bernice Butter- field with 35120, a diHicult mark for other students to reach in the future. Her prize was a beautiful Benrus wrist watch. At the end of the drive, the customary drawing' was held at which Arnold Smith claimed a handsome Benrus watch. The trophy, given to the student whose name was drawn from a pool made up of students selling over 3330 in subscriptions, went to Edward Bieno.

Student Council The Student Council was organized 4 yea1's ago to demonstrate democratic prin- ciples in the school and has advanced rapidly. 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 other classes. 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. Page l7ort5'-two Homecoming Committee To arrange for the annual Homecoming festivities, two members of each class were chosen to serve on the Homecoming Committee. They included: Jolanta Mikolainis and Bruce Soli, Freshmeng Marlene Burkhardt and Jim Schauer, Sophomoresg Donelda Karnopp and Jim Winger, Juniorsg and Arnie Smith and Dorie Reichert from the Senior 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. liHl'L'li!lgI .I 1.6 1 Stzmilingz . ill' bllt' .

The theme, HStairway to the Stars," was well portrayed by live huge stars act- ing as entrances with beautiful blue and white crepe paper streamers attached to the floor. A glistening globe hung from a lovely ceiling of stars casting its colored rays of light into a pond of goldfish which was the centerpiece. Reining over the gay affair were King Roger Turennc and Queen Josephine Hmielak.

This presentation was a three act mystery-comedy entitled 'tStranger In The Night." 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 Page Forty 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. -SIX "Maid To Qrdern "Maid To Order," a three-act comedy, was presented by the class of '5-1 on Boveinber 3, 1954, before a large audience. It was supervised by Mrs. Swanson.

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. Page Forty-nine f 1954 Mardi Gras D . Athletics XX 3 Z?

Football "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 champions. 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 FOOTBALL STANDINGS Won Lost Q Tied Thorp .. .. 5 0 1 Cadott .. .. 5 1 0 Stanley .. .. 4 1 1 Cornell .. .. 3 3 0 Neillsville .. .. 2 4 0 Owen . . . . . 1 5 0 Gilman .. .. 0 6 0 20 20 2 l':15:e Fifty -two vldallltn-I af. asks Football 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 respectively. 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. wrwFww3ua":"W " 4f'f'15""".'g ' -55,6 'wi J"-"".f' A ' I' Fifty-llircu TOP: STARTING LINE-UP: Backielfl: ROGER HOFFMAN, GENE ZASKI5, ROGER TURENNE, LEONARD ZUKOWSKT, NEIL BROEREN.

Basketball 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. l':igt- lfiitg -iii HARLEY I, Roc S P' Vev lzzv IM COAC H HALDY J CAPTAINS URBAN AND NERDRUM GENE RICH SQUWRREL -- RICHIE l':xg1-Fifty-xix Sitting: llill llzlrycki, -lllllll Maier, .lim SL'llZlllC1', Ricliard hlnrovlci, llziviill Ciucll. llonzllil Sorlcrlxerg, I Stundiiigi lirucc- Soli, .lzimes Ulu-rlc. llonzild Ryniec, ltugcnc xVllllGll'll, Richard Cizulmzlkowski, blames Blscr, Rex Sclimic Keith iilznsslmf, Mr. Amumlson. "B" Team 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.
