In 1946 we started school. Successfully passing through the first eight grades, we soon ound ourselves awaiting high school with great anticipation. Our freshman class consisted of 34 students. Steven Nichols was elected President, Stuart Ring was elected Vice President, Linda Herman was elected Secretary, and Bonnie Van Epps was Treasurer. We gained Francis Overton, Lawrence Remington, Ruth Reming- ton, Lewis Draper, and Stanley Shelmidine, Nancy Bovay. We lost Lawrence Remington, Nelson Butler, David Tamblin, and Carl Moffett. Upon entering our sophomore year our class consisted of 38 students. Jim Groff was President, Carol Switzer was Vice President, Linda Herman was Secretary, Jim Elliott was Treasurer. One of the most thrilling moments of our sophomore year was ordering our class rings. At the end of the year we lost Donald Lennox, Francis Overton, Steve Nichols, Jim Groff, Charles McGrath, Ruth Remington, Marlene Stone, Jackie and Joan Halleck. Lewis Draper, Madeline Block. Lyn Simmons, Henry Pitcher and Billy Pratt. In our Junior year we presented our play “Abigail Goes Haywire” under the direction of Mr. Jack Roberts, which proved to be very successful. We held one of the most suc- cessful Junior Proms in the history of Adams High School. That year we elected Leonard Cool as President, Stuart Ring was Vice President. Linda Herman, Secretary; and Bonnie Van Epps, Treasurer. We gained Glyn Brown and Richard Brown to our class and lost Truman Gleason, and Pat Henry. Starting our senior year we found we had dwindled to only 18 students, all eager for graduation. In October we presented “Her Kissin’ Cousin” which proved to be very profitable. We put on a Christmas Ball with the Junior class. In the Spring we had a tea dance, ham raffle and a food sale. 10

PROPHECY Last week. I attended a private reunion of the class of 1959. And as could be expected, I canie upon some rather surprising facts about my former classmates. Calvin O’Brien holds controlling interest in the Berry Lumber Company. It still goes under the name of “Berry,” however. We understand that Ruth makes him toe the line. Carol Switzer won first prize recently in a “Miss Giggles” contest. She received a laughing hyena to keep her company during her laughing spells. Hollis Flaherty couldn’t make the reunion either. He is a top scientist in Russia and wasn’t allowed out of the country. His name has been changed to Hollinski Flaher- vitch. Stuart Ring has written a book on “Practical Jokes.” It is reported that Stu has the most extensive collection of humorous devices in the United States. The industrial arts department is now headed by George Hallett. He has Mr. Scholtz beaten—George has lost five fingers. Glyn Brown wasn’t there but someone had a picture of him and his family. It was very nice except for his 2-year old daughter whose engineer’s boots were slightly large for her. Dorothy Berry is private secretary to the President of the Pineapple Growers of Hawaii. Like most secretaries, she is married to her boss. However, instead of a salary she gets 5 cases of canned pineapple a week. The Shelmidines, under the leadership of Stanley, have staged a revolution. What used to be Lorraine is now called Shelmidinia and is a limited monarchy. The hopped-up car bug of our class, Lyle Seaman, is truly at home in his occupation. He sweeps the track at Indianapolis. Earl Remington is still trying to work his way up from the janitor’s job at the drug store. In the meantime he is making posters to earn some extra money. Bruce Dobbins holds the title of champion stock-car racer. Evidently his long locks impaired his vision when he was trying to take the inside curve because he now has a brush-cut. Richard Brown has been arrested by local authorities upon complaint from the Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. It seems that he was kicked by a cow and was observed chasing it around the barnyard with a pitchfork. Bonnie Van Epps was head of the English department in one of the larger New York City schools. Through her efforts a law was passed that raised teachers’ salaries in the state. It didn’t do her much good, though. She was fired. Leonard Cool has combined his basketball, musical and West Point backgrounds into one. He plays lead trumpet in the pep band at West Point basketball games. Jim Elliott, who went to Alaska after graduation, spends the majority of his time building additions onto his igloo in order to house his growing family. Bonnie Sheley, now a full-fledged dental hygienist, has married “Mr. Tooth Decay.” She has the science world completely stumped, though. Her children cut their teeth complete with silver fillings. Richard Walden has left his old shy self behind in favor of being an aggressive business man. He is running a rest home for those between the ages of 2 and 40. II
