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, Treasurer. 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'. 14 IHIY WERE 'Q ti . Q xxx . Hx .2 + K-.. , E . f Q X -Q L 'z' V - lf' .f. . W .. 4 5 b Lg?

On a recent canvass of the world we found them living their lives in the way theythemselves have chosen. 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 OLIVER, 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, Sincerely, The snoopers of the Class of '50 17 Sl lllll PIAY THE PROFESSOR GOES HAYWIRE Scott Bunting, a young professor . .
