I A P ' THE 1959 JUN1oa..sEN1oR BANQUET W ..A, 5 N il' --W - - A . N.. V .-5 'L As IL .l.., The traditional Junior-Senior banquet was given at the Fox Hotel in Austin on the evening of May 20, 1959. The theme of the banquet was the New York World's Fair. The senior class colors, old rose and silver, were carried out in the table decorations. The center piece on each table was formed by miniatures of the two main buildings at the Fair, the Trylon and the Perisphere. The place cards were also outlines of these two buildings, and each guest was provided with a means of transportation which were toy cars, ships, airplanes, and busses. A three-course dinner was served, consisting of the following menus: Fruit cocktail, Assorted relishes, Roast Loin of Pork, , Apple sauce, Buttered peas and carrots, Whipped potatoes, Waldorf salad, Hot dinner rolls, Coffee, Milk, Pineapple Sundae, and Cake.

h,.,,, 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 ' , U A The man who just drove up in the blue packard is Bill Wiste 0 He is a prosperous farmer near Owatonna, and his corn won the blue ribbon at the state fair last year. , , " There are Ruby Anderson and Pearl Knutson together. I hear .these girls now have a novelty shop in Toronto, Canada. , ft lThat distinguished looking gentleman on the left is Mr. M. Prescott. He took his Ag, boys with him too, I see, for 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, . ' There's the president of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. of the Washington branch. Kevin really made a name for himself. A Here comes Alton Johnson, now known as the WAr1zona Cattle Kingn. He owns a thousand acre cattle ranch in Arizona. .Time marches on, and so does Mr. Thompson. He has a,very business-like manner and is carrying a brief case. No wonder, he is a salesman for a large concern in Detroit, Michigan. , And so the whistle blows and the game starts with a bang! What a homecoming! A' n VIsabel Wohlers

THE 1959 SENIOR TRIP TO FARIBAULT On May 10, 1959, Mr. Sorknes took his senior Social Problems class to Faribault, Minnesota to visit the state institutions. We have studied, during the past year, the education of the blind, deaf, and the feeble-minded. It was very interesting to visit these state institutions. The institution for the feeble-minded was the first place we visited. A social worker took us through the administration build- ing and then to the various buildings where the different types of the feeble-minded were kept. She explained to the class the dif- ferent types of inmates, those where heredity was the cause and those where the mental defectiveness were a result of secondary causes, such as high fevers, accidents, and injuries. We visited the industrial classes where those of higher mental ability were working. , ' We next visited the institution for the blind. We gathered in the chapel where Mr. Burhow, the principal, gave a talk on the education of the blind. He had a girl from the second grade read for us from her readers. The librarian showed us the school lib- rary. She explained the system by which the blind throughout the state may receive books from the library. She also told us that no postage is charged for carrying these books through the malls. We then visited the school for the deaf. The principal, Miss Quinn, took us to the first, second, and third grades. She explained the process of teaching a child to talk who,1s unable to hear, The process is a purely mechanical one and a great deal of patience is necessary in teaching the deaf to talk.' She showed us a girl they have there who was born both deaf and blind. Her, case is similar to that of Helen Keller. They have worked with this girl for three years before any noticable progress was made. She will be sent to Boston next yean'where more specialized instru- ction for both the blind and deaf is provided. We were then taken through the upper grades and high school. The principal took us through the various trade schools where the students may learn EL trade 0 On our way home we stopped at the Woolen Mills, where we saw how Faribo Blankets are made from the time the wool is carded to the packing of the finished blankets in boxes. Most of the wool in this factory is from our native land, about one-fourth of the wool used 1s imported. Our next stop was at Owatonna where we visited the Josten Company. There we saw the process of making rings and trophies for schools. No matter how small or how large a ring is, it must go through the same process in making,
