BASKETBALL 195 3-54
As the final buzzer rang the end to the 1953-
54 Basketball Season, Central had a pretty de-
jected l'Bunch" of players for a varsity team.
The Varsity Redwings felt that they had let
their Alma Mater and their school mates down
by not winning a game out of the seven played.
But then, too, maybe we let our team down.
When they went out onto the court, there were
only a few Ca very fewl friendly faces to be
seen in the stands to cheer them on. There was
no one out there to give them that added cour-
age and zest, so necessary to win. An excited
yell might have helped the Redwings when they
were putting on a sudden spurt that could have
been a winning score.
I don't think we have our team to blame for
their bad showing, nor was it Coach Carlisle's
fault. We, the student body, are the only ones
who can give our school a winning team. The
players come from us, and if we give our whole-
hearted support, they'll win for us. l'Come on,
Central, let's go".
Special mention goes to Lajuan Kirk and
Harold McCracken for their showing during the
Although we have to go to press before the
l954 Track Season is Hnished, we can include
a brief account of its activities under Coach Kirn
and the new Assistant Coach, Mr. Thuet. The
team won three of its first six meets. Cuene Pill-
man tied for third in the pole vault in the very
tough District Meet. In the middle of the sea-
son the team was given a very hard blow by the
injury of our star mile runner, Max Tarpley.
The team includes about twenty-five boys, and
all but six of them will be back next year. Fol-

The June Glass "WilI,'
We, the June, 1954, Graduating Class of
Central High School, being of minds
and sound bodies fwe hopelj, do hereby will
and bequeath our following "acquirings" of the
past four years to the remaining students.
To the fool who is willing to take it Che's
not particular, in fact, -he's glad to get rid of itj
Elmer King leaves his ability to "sing", The
Tony Martin of C-entral, Bob Eollin, leaves his
singing voice to Charlie Morgan, while Gloria
Kruse bestows her voice upon Myrna Wray.
Doug Creemens wants Bill Root to have his
sense of humor, and Irene Mirth gives Gail
Jewell her speaking ability. Marlene Understall
receives Shirley Baldauf's friendliness, and
Sharon Bresley, Joan Allen's personality.
'iGenerous" Dave Reynolds and Ted Gawlak
leave their height to Dave Grewe and John
Pendleton. Could you spare it boys? In the
event that Richard Smith should need them Cwe
doubt itj Gene Ethridge leaves him his brains.
Jackie Myers shares her intelligence with anyone
who needs it, while Nancy Graf specifically
leaves her smartness to Jerry Barfield, because
she thinks that he could use it.
Some of the teachers will benefit from the
graduating class too. Norm Wanger wants to
give Mr. Cartwright the "birdies" from his
camera. Joe Crowe gladly gives Mr. Powell his
chair in chemistry, and Bob Lukitsch wants Mr.
Chapman to have all his undone homework in
Retailing. Three vacant seats are left to the

Mayberry. Thavius Lewis, Dennis Trimble and
Wayne Burkhardt leave the fun they had in the
Mike Club. Betty Parker, Karen Wray, Jean
Pervorse and Luellen Whitney leave their home-
work to any other studious individual. The
"unusual" sayings of Bob Panosh go to anyone
that has the nerve to take them. '
Betty McReynolds, Osa King, Pansy Nicho-
las and Shirley Richardson leave all the men at
Central to posterity. This took a little doing,
but Pat Kiel finally agreed to share her boy-
friends with the rest of the girls. Mary Ellen
Weaver bestows her pleasing smile upon Willo-
dene Drake: and, if Pat Shumacher,wants it,
she can have Bonnie Jones's laugh. Barbara Bell's
absent-mindedness goes to Mary Huermann.
Norma Bronsky bestows her sweet ways upon
The time and space they took up while at
Central are left by Joe Monterosso, Ron Suer-
man and James Wolfe. Those happy to be just
leaving are George Brown, Jerry Gunn, Max
Mayberry, Doyle Raylield, Floyd Baumbach
and Joe Benwell. Rich Allison and Max Tarp-
ley leave to the rest of the track team, the many
miles that are ahead of them in the coming
season. Larry Smith receives from Jim. Hogue
a pair of water wings with best wishes for a
successful season in swimming next year. Erank
Pisciotta leaves the entire baseball team his
wishes for continued success. To Al' Holtman
goes one dozen slightly used tennis balls from
Ed Gray and Harold McKeever.
Tom Dierzbicki, Andrew Marshewa and Lee
Riebling bequeath their shyness upon Qof all
peoplefj Art Moser, Eugene Brunk and Perry
Newman. Earl Costephens is leaving behind a
sign "Hands Off" which he plans to pin on Bar-
