Cfarid MOP QC? Since my graduation in l95O, over twenty years ago, it has been a great consolation to me to be able to keep in touch, from time to time, with my classmates by means of that wonder- ful and scientific instrument, television. Not long ago, l heard that famous speech of Alta Robinson, Senator, which was said to have changed the entire vote of the U. S. Senate. Ronald Willnow has been studying Chemistry for some time and is now trying to extract the raisins from the Raisin River. That very popular book, "Sleep, Slumber, and Snooze," was written by John Hancock. lt is especially enjoyed by his classmates as they realize that he gathered the material in his high school days. Pat Brockway is a missionary at Wild Water Beach, Devils Lake. As the name signifies, she has much to work against. Mildred Emery, Helen Keller, and Reo Melville are her assistants. Roger Miller has just invented a lipstick that he guarantees to last as long as barn paint regardless of the wear and tear, or weather conditions. His travelling salesman, James Patterson, is giving extensive demonstrations with the help of his partner, Joan Littrell. A Victor Long, a towering 6' lO" ex-Physics star, is now playing center for the "Addison ggets." Carl Tubbs and Bill Brown are operating a whiskey distillery in Canada, and they are making a very large fortune. They found that their whiskey also cures adenoids. S h Bert Carmichael is now holding that enviable position of Truant Officer of Seneca High c oo. Raymond Roop is receiving popular acclaim for his book, "Then the Little Birdies Built Their Nests" Barbara Timmins and Robert Miller are touring Kentucky where they are collecting ma- terial for their play entitled, "Eating Corn With a Glass." Howard Yost is still playing the part of the stationmaster in that great mystery, "The Ghost Train." Marlene Barnes and Gloria Masteller are still bringing down the house at the Fairy Frolic with their hula dance. Dr. John Charles Tolford, graduate of the Palmyra School of Home Economics, is head butcher and chief seamstress of the Painville General Hospital. Clarke Wilson, contender for the heavyweight championship of the world, is suing the Dick Thompson Sporting Goods Store because the last horse shoe fwhich he purchased purely for lucki splintered his hand in a fight with that powerful light-heavy Joan Randolph. Victor "Sweepy" Skeels has been hired as Assistant Custodian of Sanitary Cleansing Ele- ments lJanitor's helperi at Moldy Bill's Military Academy. Charles Richard, the shrewdest private dick in the business, has opened a school for police detectives. Bob Knechtel is appearing at the Croswell Opera House with his magician show. Barbara Vogel is giving advice to the lovelorn in her column in the Pine Bluff Bi-weekly Buzzard. Roy Andrews has replaced Mr. Davidson as boys' counselor. Bob Bournes has successfully defended his title of Mr. America which he has held for the past twelve years. l have heard that Robert Riley is a prosperous bull rancher down in Texas. Vincent Agul, that well-known baseball personality, is now holder of a new world's record. He has sold more peanuts than any other salesman in the history of Briggs Stadium. Seymour Warner, the sought-after playboy, is seen around New York night clubs with June Allion, Hollywood movie actress. Ahh . . . such is life. Alta Robinson and Carolyn Sharp are editors of the society newsheet, "The Social Gab Blab." Wayne Berridge is still wrestling on television. One of his partners is a certain ex-teacher who was reportedly from the South. Phil Bailey is long-distance star of the U. S. track team in the Olympic games. Now l am content. My television set has served me well, for l have learned something of many of the Class of l95O. I have to quit now to go and see my lifelong friend Professor Rich- ard Lackie, author of the book, "How to Play Tennis in 738 Easy Lessons." This page is sponsored by MORRIS 5 AND 'IO CENT STORE 23

CAM IM We, the class of nineteen hundred and fifty, the most noble and distinguished class ever to have trod the halls of learning in Ye Olde Adrian High, County of Lenawee, State of Michi- gan, having at this time, certain knowledge of our death iprobably in June? and being of sound and rather determined mind, do hereby make this our last will and testament. Amen. We, the Senior Class do will: To the Junior Class our exalted positions as senior. lEvery dog has his day, and so will the Junior Classll To those who frequent the "Boiler-room Lounge" we will a year's supply of second hand chewing gum which we have carefully placed under seats and desks. And to the faculty in general, we will the lasting memory of the illustrious Class of '50, "Naow then," we, the Senior Class, will to Mister Roy "MouI-e-cule" Keller a booklet en- titled "How to Yodel in Three Easy Lessons." We also endow the southwest corner of the study hall as a habitual residence for the ghost of Phil Bailey's dignity, said ghost to be kept there for the moral effect upon the school. I, Herb "Woody" Hood, do will my trick of looking innocent at the right moment to Dave "Fred" Fisher. I, Vic Long, will my overworked brain to Dick Mott who will give it a rest. I, Jim Ham, do will my agricultural interests to Pat Fox who "ad-Myers" a certain farmer. I, John "Tarzar" Hancock, will my way with the teachers to Chuck Skala who already has a good start. I, Clarice Jones, will my quiet ways to Elsie "l've got a jokel" Hansen. I, Tom "I only go steady for two days" Cooper, do will my position as a political B. T. O. CBig Time Operator? to Dale "Never Fail" Fleming. I, Barbara "I'm always in a hurry" Pasternacki, do will my small, dainty hands to Walt "I'm all tuckered out!" Glover. I, Rick "DaredeviI" Powell, will my mania for speed to Pat Proudfoot. I, Jim Fetzer, will my speed on foot and otherwise to Larry Goodes. I, Bob VanSickIe, will my ability to get along with ninth grade girls to anyone who likes to get in by ten o'clock. I, Don "Hairy" Winters, will my ability to grow a mustache to Paul Hook. l, Jack Clark, my partial plate to Ronnie Briggs. I, R. J. Miller, will my seat in study hall to anyone who can't find a softer place to sleep. I, Barbara Vogel, will my ATO garter to anyone who wants to get a snap out of life. I, Marilyn Schmidt, will to the faculty all the information that I have furnished them from time to time in various examination papers-knowledge which I am sure must have been entire- ly new to them, too. We, the bridge fiends lCarI, Elaine, Dean, Marlene, and Mary Alicel, will our worn out cards and late hours to any Juniors who like to keep their homework a month behind. In Witness Whereof, We, the Class of Fifty, the testators, have to this our will, written on one sheet of parchment, set our hand and seal, this eighth day of June, Anno Domini, One Thou- sand Nine Hundred Fifty.
