Il IIIUATIII - moss CUUNTRY
They pound down the stretch - our exhausted
cross country boys - fighting on for a victory,
knowing'their effort will scarcely be recognized
by their classmates. A cross cotmtry runner
doesn't receive glory. He doesn't run to make
a hit with the crowd, but because he loves it.
Competition and the thrill of knowing that his
accomplishments are earned on his own are
incentives to him. .
This year's team won all of their dual meets
to extend their consecutive wins to 25 Cthree
years without a lossj. Team balance was the
deciding factor in these wins. The team did a
fine job in that they competed against city
schools as large as ten times the size of Tre-
mont. Much credit for this fine record goes to
Coach Kisellus for his efforts in training and
coaching these boys.
The staff considers it a great honor to dedi-
cate the 1954 'Echo' to this fine group of fel-
lows and wishes to say forthe whole school

K. Koch,M. Beutel, P. Sum-
merlot, R. Riggenbach.
The members of the Echo staff hope you enjoy
reading our 1954 yearbook as much as we have
enjoyed putting it together under the capable
leadership of our co-editors, Marilyn Beutel, Kay
Koch, Patsy Summerlot, and Rachel Riggenbach
and our advisor, Mr. Shryock. We wish to thank
everyone for the interest they took in our snap-
shot contest and for the fine pictures which they
submitted, many of which are included on our
snapshot pages. It is our desire that the different
sections of the Echo may always bring back pleas-
ant memories of 1953-54, your last school year
in the present Tremont High School.

Scene. Tremont Space Station
Time: 1975, New Yearfs Eve
On this cold, wintry December 31, there is a large
crowd gathered at the Tremont Space Station to witness
the thrilling take-off of the first traveling circus to
the moon. The circus is to leave in the famous Flying
Dutchman, the big cruising space ship designed by
Prof. Richard J. Connell.
I can now hear a voice announcing over the spaca-
phone that the Flying Dutchman will leave Tremont
Station at 1:11 P.M., A. S. T. CAtomic Space Timej.
This announcement seems to stir the crowd. Suddenly
we notice someone breezing past us to get to the
space ship. Why I should have known it would be the
famous tmpeze artist - Lois 'Emily' Stuber and her
flying saucer. Everyone rushes to the scene of an
accident as we hear nurse Gay Herron's name blurted
over the spacaphone. It explains that she is wanted on
the northeast corner of the south field going west.
Eertmoed must be ready to leave on the space ship
this afternoon because of an appointment he has on the
moon with the Moongraph Architect Company. Will he
be ready to go in sixty minutes? As nurse Herron
bends over his crumbled body and shoots one of her
specialized supersonic shots into his arm, he immed-
iately rises to his feet and is spry as a 'spring
chicken' in November.
Larry 'Rocket Nose' Hild, chief of the clowns,
hurries over to his equipment and to his sad despair
finds his three little Hilds - Eenie, Meenie, and
Minie - tangled up in Donna 'Soph' Sauder's loose,
tight wire. Genevieve Abell, the reporter of the circus,
asksnhim where Moe' is and he says, 'There ain't no
Shirley Hebner, the housekeeper of the space ship,
and Barbara Steiner, the cook, come rattling and bang-
ing through the crowd with all their equipment. Suddenly
'Cook' Steiner drops a jar of molasses and Morris
'Burrhead' Wildermuth, the trainer of the circus
animals, unconsciously steps into the gluey mess
and his pet tiger, 'Ferdinand", pulls free from him
and heads for the wide open spaces.
After co-captain Stan 'The Man' Riley and Riley
"Rinse" Renfro have tugged and pulled on Morris for
five minutes without budging him, they call on pro-
wrestler, muscle man jim Koch. jim grabs him with
one hand and pulls him out, shoes and all, with no
trouble at all.
As soon as Morry is freed, he notices 'Ferdy' is
gone. 'Ferdy' has to leave with the rest of the circus
within the hour, so something must be done. They
realize no one could capture him as fast as Henry "jr.'
Dill, the brave man who singlehanded explored the
planet Pluto. Of course, he's our man,.but - Madam
Dorothy Lay arrives on the scene just in time to ex-
plain that explorer Dill is on an expedition through
the glass house and is lost in the House of Mirrors.
Then she tells us that Roy 'Midget' Neville, midget
of the meteor men, is searching for him. Suddenly Roy
and Henry both appear with "Ferdy", dragging him by
his silver plated collar. Roy has found both explorer
and 'Ferdy' lost in the House of Mirrors.
Now it seems everyone is ready for the big take-off,
and it is nearing 1:11 P.M., A. S. T. The atomic door
is being closed as Madam Lay lets out a loud shriek.
Everyone rushes to see what is wrong. She tells them
her crystal ball is missing. Everyone is furious. Genny
Abell suggests that they call Dale Pflederer, the
Chief of Police of the cit of Tremont, and maybe with
his automatic squadmobile he can locate the ball. He
is notified, and he arrives shortly after this with his
two favorite Z-Men CZoom Menj, Frederick Craddick
and Robert Wiseman. They bring their equipment, a
space net and a book on a '202 . Their job is to get
This theft has just been flashed over the ATC Met-
eorvision System, when jerry Sauder, who is an astro-
nomy engineer, says he has just seen a crystal ball
floating through space about 100 miles southeast of
Immediately Dorothy 'Fingers' Laidig is contacted
to type a message on her atomic-run typewriter, Cwhich
types 999 words a minutej, to Wayne Connell, Dictator
to jupiter. He is told to keep a close watch for any
flying object resembling a crystal ball. Dictator Con-
nell, being well educated in astronomy, knows the
crystal ball won't stay in one place very longg and as
the wind is blowing from the north, he thinks perhaps
it will go to the vicinity of Pluto. After studying the
matter, he spacaphones to the Ambassador of Pluto,
Ila June Sauder, telling her of the missing ball. She
calls one of her most eligible plutomic speed men
with his souped-up plutersonic space ship, Merle
Merle is entertaining Kay Koch, a Saturnalian cander-
stern of the Morterates, for the afternoon with soloist
Sally Strunk singing 'I see the Earth' accompanied by
Marilyn Beutel's Venus-version orchestra. just then
Ambassador Sauder plutogramms to Merle to go on duty
immediately. Kay decides to go along for a souped-up
ride and a thrill. First he has to stop and fill up on
some atomic energy at Roger Ropp's Energy Station.
They begin looking for the crystal ball. Suddenly Kay
spies a queer object floating around in outer space. Is
that the crystal ball or is that Beverly Hutchison's
moonomatic ball her gym class plays with? It is the
missing ball. Now wait a space second, the ball is
found but how are they going to catch it? Kay quickly
pulls her Saturnian Z-ray gun from her purse, pushes
the button to open the space ship window,and stretches
as far as she can, aiming the rays of the pistol at the
ball. The crystal ball, being made of Jupertian glass,
doesn't seem to be attracted to the z-rays. Suddenly
she remembers the shoes with the magnetic buckle
that she has on, designed by Shirley Wagenbach.
Reaching out of the window again with her shoe in her
hand, she can feel the magnetic force attracting the
ball. In a split second the crystal ball is in the space
ship - safe and sound.
Immediately Kay and Merle space the crystal ball
back to earth and again Madam Lay has the important
object that is holding up her circus journey. It is 5:55
P.M. CA. S. TJ and the circus is ready to leave for
the moon at last. Merle and Kay are still talking to
their circus friends when Dorothy Laidig typeogramms
a message saying that Marilyn Baurer, wife of the late
Dictator of the Moon, wants to borrow the crystal ball
for a few hours that evening in a presentation of the
Nobel Prize to Kay Koch for finding the crystal ball.
When Kay hears the message, she is so excited that
she decides she'll have to have a new dressy so she
and Merle fly to Saturn to Arlene Rowell's famous
dress shop and buy a green one with florescent cando-
spern nitrate for the trim.This is a new natural resource
Ezliscovered by Miss Rowell which has brought her to
The circus people are so excited about the crystal
ball being used in the presentation that they decide to
fly to the moon for the presentation and postpone their
performance until the next day.
They finally reach the moon just in time for the
presentation at 8:88 P.M. CA. M. TJ. Kay Koch just
barely makes it because the trim of her dress on one
side won't glow until she pumps more oxygen into it.
Madam Baurer is in front of 90,000 people who have
come to see the great presentation. She holds the
prize-winning crystal ball tightly in her hand. Kay
marchs in after a fan-fare, and the presentation of the
Nobel Prize is made. The crystal ball is given back to
Madam Lay and the circus is free to put on their per-
formance the next day as planned.
After spending afew hours with this ambitious class
of 1954, I imagine you'll agree, WHAT A CLASS!
The moral of this prophecy is:
If you see a crystal ball
Floating around in space,
Don't hesitate to pick it up
No matter what its pace.
Do not try to keep it,
No matter what its size,
Because it may win you
The great Nobel Prize.

A great event for the Junior Class this year
was the presentation of the play, 'Home Sweet
The three act mystery takes place in the gar-
den of the Carstairs home. The Carstairs young
people - Dinah, April, and Archie - are trying
to run the household while their widowed mother
writes mystery stories. The children feel that
Marian Carstairs .... . . . Rachel Riggenbach
their mother needs publicity on her next novel
and then two shots ring out next door. The child-
ren plant false clues for the police lieutenant,
who turns out to be a bachelor. The play ends
with the kids solving the murder and also catch-
ing a husband for their mother.
Many thanks to Miss Schneider Cdirectorj and
the cast for a wonderful play.

the Senior Class presented the play, 'Cheaper by
the Dozen', written by two of the Gilbreth child-
The play takes place in the Gilbreth living room.

are talking together, reminiscing about certain

insisted on wearing silk stockings. Frank and
