Here comes Miss Heimer in a stunning frock. They say she '
is part owner of a dress shop in Miami. -
Who is the young lady with the notebook and pencil? Why
of course, that's Lorraine, now a private secretary to the govere-
nor of Minnesota. . '
That chap that just walked by was Mr. Knutson, president of
the National Bank at San Francisco, and the man down in front who
can't be quiet is Wilbur Koloen, now better known as Billy Kel
whose orchestra is heard every Wednesday night on the air.
Doesn't Miss Barthelme look cute in a nurse's costume and
cloak. Being head supervisor at a Los Angeles Hospital cer-
tainly keeps her looking fine. ,
Juletta Winkels enters the bleachers now, She certainly
knows the law now, for she is private secretary for a very
prominent attorney at Dallas. A ' ,

He is a prosperous farmer near Owatonna, and his corn won the

Martin is an Ag. teacher at Seattle, Washington. I
Down by the south goal post are two men deeply engaged in
conversation. I believe that is Mr. Gosha, a dairy farmer near
Racine, Wisconsin, and he is talking to Mr. Schaefer, who owns
a filling station in Racine, 9
Look at the sailor, girls! Well, one boy from our class
took to the sea, That's Roman Winkels in the spiffy uniform.
Listen to that pep band. It is quite a treat for them to
have as their guest director, Miss Frieda Amble, who now swings
a baton at Roosevelt H. S. in Washington D. C, .

What a homecoming!

lt 18 the big event of the year! Homecoming at dear old
Adams High on November ll, 1944. It is a huge success, for
beside winning the football game, most of the 1959 seniors are
back to witness the football ability of the 944W team.
Passing down the sidelines and walking through the newly
constructed bleechers, a young man could be seen sitting very,
tense and looking very proud. It was Dr. James,A. Erckenbrack.
Why was he so proud? He had pulled a tooth for Judy Garland
just two days ago, and he isn't over the thrill, M
Beside the doctor sits a good looking chap. It is Terry
Canney, who hltchhlked all the way from Florida to be here for
homecoming. Terry now has the title, known the world over, of
nLadies Gentlemann. ,
A young lady now raises her voice to call the popcorn man.
Well, if it 1sn't that famous dress designer, who ls at present
a fashion councellor at Marshall Field's in Chicago. Isabel 4,
always said that was her goal. The series of articles she wrote
after her trip to Paris certainly is tops in the fashlon world.,
Sitting next to the young lady is a handsome man. Yes, it
is John Sorflaten,' He's really a success as an accountant with
a salary simply enormous. He has just been promoted to business
manager of a large firm in Maryland..
- Say, that voice sounds familiar, Of course, it's James
Krebsbach. He has that rather dignified look now, for he is
teaching school at Duluth, Minnesota. ,
The game ls to start in five mlnutesg and in rides Mr.
Lawrence Georgen, king of the speedways, with his H1926 Jalopyu.
Lawrence has just returned from Indianapolis where he took
first prize at the tin can derby.:
The girls with the1r hair just so, why of course, that's
Miss Iverson, now the owner of the Star Beauty Salon at Albert
Lea, and girl with her is her assistant, Madonna Kiefer, who
has a very promising future in beauty culture.' P 1
That can't be Eunice Torgerson, can,1t? How she has
changed! She must have done something to her hair lshe got her
last permanent at the Star Beauty SalonJ. Eunice is quite proud
of herself and has reason to be for she is a Home Demonstration,
agent up North. Now she is making plans of using her Home
Ec. knowledge in a home of her own.f All congratulations to her,
