Homecoming King and Queen
Marie Esposito and Dennis Jacobs were elected as the 1954 Homecoming King and
Queen. As Miss and Mr. U. T. H. S., they presided over all Homecoming activities.
Mary Ellen Duffy and Bill Gingerich, runners-up, crowned the King and Queen at a
colorful assembly. The beautiful pageantry of the Coronation assembly was preceded
by inspiring talks by Dean Stone, pitcher for the Washington Senators and former
studentg and Bob Austin, a big league referee.
That night a slow drizzle didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the students, who par-
ticipated in the Homecoming Parade and bonfire. Homecoming activities were under-
way. Friday night the U. T. H. S. football team defeated Canton's Little Giants 15-0
in a thrilling game. Then came the highlight of the October weekend, the Homecoming
Dance. Now all that remained of the Homecoming festivities were happy memories.

U.T. H. S. Presents
The plays of John W. Stevens were well-known in the Com-
munity for the enjoyment which they provided. Mr. Stevens'
plays this year showed variety as he presented a farce, a sophis-
ticated comedy, a melodrama and a light comedy. Mr. Stevens
and the cast spent four to six weeks on each production. This
was a season of well rounded entertainment.

to promote and entitle the students to participate in
the administration of the school, to develop more
interest in the activities and accomplishments of this

The Advisory Board is a member of the Quint-
City Student Congress, which represents the ten
Quint-City schools. lfast Moline sent five representa-
tives along with Miss Fehrman to the meetings. The
purpose of the Congress was to create a better feeling
of friendship and to promote sportsmanship among

adopted a "Code of Sportsmanship."
Eight members of the Advisory Board attended
the Pekin District meeting in Quincy. Four dele-

McNutt's accident and hospitalization, the group shouldered many of the responsibilities
of the library. Fulfilling their duties as officers were Bill Meyers, president, Rebecca
Howell, secretary, and Pat Achilles, treasurer. The twenty-one members of the club made
ready the books for circulation. Each assistant was privileged to recommend ten fiction
books and five non-fiction books. The members of this club helped maintain the order
and the quietness necessary to a good library.
To be eligible for membership in this club, a student must have a C+ average in
his grades, be of regular attendance in school, be interested in library work, and also

the Rifle Club. The club, under the leadership of the officers Blake McKahin, jim De Pauw,

The club sponsored a successful shutileboard booth in the Carnival, which was the source
of much fun for many outsiders.

The Girls' Athletic Association is one of the larg-
est organizations in our school. The group promoted
interest in all sports through intramural activities. It
boasted an excellent varsity tennis team. During the
football season the G.A.A. girls handled the pro-
grams for the games. With the proceeds they pur-
chased award letters and sent two girls to a G.A.A,
summer camp. The main event of the year was the
G.A.A. King and Queen coronation, climaxed by the
gala girl-ask-boy dance held May 6.

In its second year of operation the Lettermen's
Club did much to make themselves proud and most
of it was work. Each Letterman worked one Satur-
day in town and turned his earnings over to the club
for a swirl pool bath. They collected money for the
polio drive. The Lettermen also collected money- at
the Moline-East Moline football game to help send
the American Olympic team to Melborne, Australia.
The Lettermen received an extremely appreciative
letter from the Olympic Team Fund offices in Chi-
cago thanking them and telling them that they were
the only high school group in the state to support
The Lettermen's Club officers
were: Bill Gingerich, treasurerg
Gary Wieneke, secretaryg Os-
borne Branch, presidentg Mr.
Ernest Kivisto, sponsorg and
X Dick Sahr, vice-president.
The Lettermen, sponsored by Ernest Kivisto and
joe Dhondt, held two successful dances, the "Letter-
men's Hop" and the "Panther Whirl.', Near the end
of the year came the payoff for all Lettermen, the
award assembly, where all boys who earned letters
during the year received their awards. The boys de-
cided to award a trophy, called "The Lettermen's
Athletic and Scholastic Award," to the senior athlete
who maintained the highest scholastic average. This
trophy will be kept at school.
This newly organized group is certainly one of the
most active at U.T.H.S.
Dick Sahr received the Lettermens Athletic and Scholastic
Award from coach Ernie Kivisto. Dick was a member of
both the varsity basketball and tennis teams. Dick, an honor
student, kept a scholastic average of 91.0395 during his four
years at U.T.H.S.
Enjoying the relieving effects of the schools new swirl bath
was Gary Dobereiner. Looking on were Bill Gingerich, Roger

East Moline's go-go Panthers wound up a very suc-
cessful season with a very disappointing loss to end the
1954-55 basketball season. But one cannot complain
as Coach Ernie "Bucketbal1" Kivisto, in his fourth year
at U.T.H.S., led the Panthers to an 18-6 record.
The Hilltoppers wound up in second place in the
Northwest Conference with an 8-4 record and were in
a 3-way tie for second in the Quad-Cities with 2-4.
The Orange and Black also boasted a pair of record
breakers in john Ward and Harvey Carr. Ward, against
Monmouth, set a new Northwest Conference record by
scoring 38 points. In the last regular game with Gen-
eseo, Carr broke the regular season scoring total, by
netting 41 points, only 4 away from breaking the all
time high of 45.
Guard Ron Sergeant, second in Panther scoring with
307 points, was voted honorary captain by his team-
mates. Ron Bohls and Gene Leibovitz, both leading
the way in the rebound department were voted most
Carmon Mest, junior sub forward, won the Ray
Holmes Free Throw Trophy by netting 47 of 54 free
throws for 87272, highest percentage on the trophy.
"Out of my way big boy!" East Molines Harvey Carr
drixes around St. Ambroses Pete Schebler as Gene Dully

In 24 games, East Moline scored 526 field
goals in 1,275 attempts, for an average of 41QQ,
first in the Quad-Cities. 447 free throws in 629
attempts were made for an average of 7122
also a Quad-City high. The team scored 1,494
points for an average of 62.4 points per game,
second high. Defensively the team held their
opponents to 50 points a game, first in the
Quad-City. Ron Bohls had the best eye, as he
hit 82 of 162 shots for a 5094. average.

to try out individually by leading two cheers before
the group. From the tryouts the teams plus two alter-
nates were chosen. These girls practiced twice a week
during the football season and once a week during
the basketball season. Miss Martha Boley coached
all three cheerleading teams. Our cheerleaders need-
ed and had poise, coordination, rhythm, acrobatic
ability, and enthusiasm. They also had to keep a C
average in all classes.

basketball cheerleading uniforms, were: Mary
Ellen Duffy, Joyce Turner, Sheryl Smith, Mary
