Good evening friends. This is Station A. H. S. broadcasting from its
studios in Alba, Missouri, under the sponsorship of G. E. Overman.
On this evening's program, we want to introduce to you the dignified
Senior Class of 1950, who will give you the latest highlights and the many
events which have taken place during 1945-1950.
We have with us Charles Honey, who is acting as Preisdent and has
done a splendid job in the behalf of his classmates. Also, we have lnis
Crutcher, Vice-President, John Rider, Secretary and Irene Blotter,
Our mistress of ceremonies will be Freida Minkler, who is our class
reporter and is also our Annual Queen, with .Terry Brown as King. She
will give the highlights--
This is Freida Minkler bringing you the main events of this class
for the four years we have attended the Alba High School.
Our Freshman class officers were: Jerry Miller, President, Zena
Lee Allison, Vice-President, Veva Storm, Secretary and Treasurer, and
John Rider was our Student Council representative. Mrs. Allison was our
sponsor..Of the many events, we shall remember most vividly the Riverside
Weiner roast held on Spring River, given in honor ofthe Sophomore class.
Upon inquiring as to which was the best class that year, we decided
that we, the fascinating Freshman class should win the award.
This brings us to the Sophomore class of forty-three students from
which class we lost four prominent students. We were fortunate to again
have Mrs. Allison as our sponsor. Our officers for the year were as
follows: President, Max Page, Vice-President, Jerry Miller, Secretary
and Treasurer, Jackie Cook, and Lois Bennett was the Student Council
member. Our activities consisted of aChristmas party, given at the home
of Shirley Bowman, who with her splendid hospitality made it enjoyable
for everyone. We took top honors in the queen contest and took great
pleasure in crowning Zena Lee Allison, Queen Zena Lee.
The Junior Class was led by Jerry Miller, President, Jackie Cook,
Vice-President, Veva Storm, Secretary and Treasurer, Shirley Bowman,
Reporter, and Charles Honey, Student Council member. The events of
this year were the class party held at the home of Ann Oliver, which we
enjoyed immensely, the Jr. Class play, and, of course, the Junior-Senior
Banquet under the direction of our class sponsor, Miss Troy. This event
was the most highly praised of the year.
As Seniors we are indeed proud. We have had many honors bestowed
upon us as a class. A brief list of these honors are: Annual King and
Queen, Basketball and Football Queens, Football Captain, Basketball
Captain, and editors of the ALBAMO and Chatters. We presented the
Senior class play and it was acclaimed a great success by all these
attending. ln May we were entertained as guests of the annual Junior-
Senior Banquet. We brought our senior year to an end with the
Commencement Exercises, and now, as we file through the closing doors
of Alba High, let us keep our class motto forever before us: Now we
launch, where shall we anchor?
And now a word from our sponsor:
The class of 1950 has been one ofthe most co-operative and agreeable
Senior Classes it has been my privilege to sponsor. With deep regret I
see them pass into history. Best of luck and smooth sailing 'kids'.

Dear Alba High School,
It has been exactly ten years since the senior class of 1950 graduated. On a recent
canvass of the world we found them living their lives in the way theythemselves have
As we walk down the streets of New York, we find a sign which reads 'LOIS BEN-
NETT,M, D., , who is now chief owner of the New York Researchlnstitution. Deciding
to visit her, we ask the head nurse, who is none other than MARTHA HEGER,where
Lois can be found. Learning from Martha that two of our former classmates, BILL
DAVIS and DICK LUMAN, are patients in the hospital, we decide to visit them. Upon
inquiring further into the matter,we learned that their racers collided head-on while
racing at the famous speed-way in New York.
As we go down Broadway in New York, we find none other thanthe 'Kackling Twins',
WANDA BENNETT and IRENE BLOTTER, starring inthe hit production 'Honey Will
Always Be True, Well, whose familiar faces do we see here ? It's the dancing team,
BILL ALLEN and DON WITHERSPOON, We decide to go backstage and who should
we see but CHARLES HONEY,who is nowbasketball coach of Yale University, pacing
the floor, waiting for Wanda, his half interest in the Kackling Twins.
Later on as we are driving through the countryside,we see a beautiful farm home
with a large silver-colored mailbox out in front. On the mailbox we see the name
'WILLIAM DODSON, This name attracts our attention and we decide to visit him.As
the door opens,we see the familiar face of the former INIS CRUTCHER, We also see
their little twin boys sitting in their highchairs eating dinner,
We go driving downthe streets of Webb City when we see the former VEVA STORM
coming from a grocery store pushing a baby carriage with little Junior in it,Tagging
along behind are her little boy and little girl fighting over who gets to carry the cookies.
Oh! Oh! Look out for thattruck! The owner should be sued for employing such reck-
less drivers. As the truck stops, we could swear the driver had blood trinkling down
his head, but, alas, it was only JERRY BROWN'S familiar red hair hanging down in
his eyes. Inquiring further, we learned that the United Transportation Company,with
which he is employed, is owned by none other than CHARLES MOSS, We walk into his
office and who should be sitting behind the bookkeeper's desk but ROBERTA HOOD,
Now we take time out to rest and go to a movie and guess who has taken Bob Hope's
place ? None other than our dear old Alba comedian, LAWRENCE HOWARD,
On our summer vacationthrough Tulsa, Oklahoma, we see a woman entering a small
house. Agreeing the face looks familiar, we realize it is the former SHIRLEY BOWMAN,
We were walking down the streets of Chicago when we heard a newsboy, the son of Mr,
and Mrs. ALBERT GUNLOCK, calling out, 'Extra, Extra , We bought a paper and read
the 'Big Story' of the day. Who should be the reporter that got the story but ANN
Later as we visited the Atlantic Coast, we saw a ship coming in. Deciding to wait
and see who was on it, we ran into CECIL HAMILTON, who we later learned has a
beautiful farm home near Carthage, Missouri and is waiting for CAROL GUNLOCK
who is returning on the ship from Europe where she has been going to school. Looking
over Carol's head we see the familiar face of JOHN RIDER who has been on an ex-
peditionin Europe. We boarded an airplane on our way to Jefferson City to visit the
Governor who is now TWYLLA WINCHESTER. Standing outside is the pilot, LETHA
LAWRENCE, and the stewardess, PAT WEESE, Entering the plane we see the famous
dress designer, BEVERLY WILLIAMS, Sitting with her is the novelist KATHLEEN
MOSER. Traveling through the Ozarks,we stopped ata hotel resort, There to greet us
were the co-owners, GRACE SMITH and DELORIS SPENCER, Learning from them that
two more or our former classmates lived near by, DON FULLERTON and the former
FREIDA MINKLER, we decided to visit them, Stopping at a farm-home to learn directions
to the Fullerton re sidence, we find ITRICE CONWAY busily cleaning house, Arriving
at the Fullerton farm, we notice it is one of the prettiest farms in this part of the
country, We learnfrom them that JERRY MILLER and the former JACKIE COOK also
have a farm home near Alba. Our curiousity as to how they are making out gets the
better of us and we head for Alba, Upon our arrival they inform us that little Junior
is now in the first grade at Alba where MAX PAGE is now teaching,

. . Alba,
The ALBAMO Staff has reached their goal in
completing the 1950 annual. This goal has been attained
by working together under the patient and able guidance
of our sponsor, Miss Martha Hyde. Our thanks to you,
Miss Hyde! Our thanks also to: -
Mr. Perl Dunn, who handled the financial matters.
The advertisers, who so generously backed us.
The entire student body, who worked and played
together to make this a year never to be forgotten.
Our sincere thanks - - - The Editor
'A little work, a little play
To keep us going--and so good-day!
A little warmth, a little light
Of love's bestowing--and so, good-night.
A little fun, to match the sorrow
Of each day's growing--and so, good-morrow!
