Before Uncle Sam took the small fortune that Great Aunt Mary left me, I de-
cided to visit ny classmates of 1962.
I stopped at the East Chemung High School to reminisce with Jim Durkee, Head
of the Discipline Department, and to come Hup-to-daten with my old buddy, Sylvia
Weiberg, who was trying to teach math. She told me that Mary Aylward was in
business in West Chemung. I surprised her at her Lite 'N Brite Beauty Shop where
seven girls were dashing around taking care of the clients.
My next stop, Harvard, found Paulette Schmarje managing the WM U T.V. Sta-
tion. She took a few minutes to tell me that Gen Coe, Karen, and their four
children were engaged in dairy farming at MEADOWEROOK FARM.
Jim Behrens, owner of the Walwortl1Gazette, had a cute red-headed co-editor.
That explained why he was so busy! As I went through Alden, I stopped to see
Beverly and Al Schuett, who now reside in the northern suburbs of Alden. As I
got out of the car, their five little boys almost ran me down. Bev informed me
that they are planning on having six more in order to have that eleven-man team
that Al is always talking about.
After leaving the Schuett's, I went on my way bound for Hebron. I first
stopped off at the high school, and who should I see there behind a big desk, no
other than Mike VanderPal. You see, Mike is now disciplining the students of
H eron against smoking. Ron Garrison finally took ovrr Mr. Schmidt's job in the
I went to Richmond, where I stopped off at Whiskey Corners to see Jean Price
and his family. Mrs. Price told me that Jean, after ten long years, is still
trying to win a race at Uilmont. At the new Richmond Memorial Hospital, I saw
Sharon Halbmaier, the head receptionist. ,
At O'Hare Airport I saw Aneta Flynn, on her way to NBC television studios
to make a speech on how she broke the world'S talkathon record-
Feeling very tired, I decided to get a hotel room and stay overnight in Chi-
cago. I saw the Bottcher Bay Hotel, owned by no other than or own Joe Bottcher.
He gave me the best room with a television set--in the basement. I sat back
and watched the newsreel on T.V. They were telling of the man who was running
for Pope, one of my classmates! It was none other than his nExcel1encyU Dave
I went u stairs to talk to Joe. I asked him if he knew of any classmates
in chicago. He said Gordon Johnson was now the owner of the Patricia Steven's
Modeling School and J.C. Ellison is the top professional twist instructor at the
Arthur Murray Studio.
Ny next stop, Hollywood, found R. Schulz blowing bubbles on the Lawrence
Walk Show. I left Rusty and at the movie lot, Chuck Elliot just finished a
ju gle picture with his favorite co-star Shila. Jim Stewart, a great actor in
Hollywood, has other side interests in a chain of production lines in Gerogia.
Dolores Wyse has finished her first movie called WHow Time Flies.U I was unable
to see Tony De Marco, the world's most famous movie producer,on vacation in some
I went back to Madison where Pete Knutson, a hair designer at Vassar's, a ,
woman's college, was vacationing. At Whitewater Janice Gile Evers was busy with
her little professors and cheerleaders.
When I reached home I decided to give Uncle Sam the money I had left. So I
mailed m 32.00 to him.

We started our freshman year with SO eager scholars. Jim Stewart lead us
through the confusion as our president. He was given support by our vice-
president Jim Jorgenson. Beverly Gritmacker, our treasurer, balanced the books.
Records of this turbulance were kept by Maureen Wyse. We had two candy sales,
a roller skating party, and saw the movie NGreen Mansions.n Somehow our advi-
sor, Mrs. Hill, survived the year and was able to teach again. Dave Benoy and
Mary Aylward were sent away to represent us on the Student Council.
Fifty less eager students tackled the sophomore year with the help of their
advisor, Mrs. Tibbitts. Jim Durkee was our ambitious president. P te Knutson,
no less enthused, was our vice-president. Janice Gile, our treasurer, was busy
straightening out last years books. Jim Stewart took over as secretary. Dave
Benoy couldn't take it, so we sent Jim Behrens along with Mary Aylward to the
Student Council. We had a real swinging dance called the HBeatnik Bop.n At the
end of the year we saw, some of us did, the movie nPlease Don't Eat The Daisies.W
Thirty-two reluctant students wandered in after summer vacation to see their
junior year through with or without the help of their advisor, Mr. A.N. Schmidt.
Tony De Marco showed us the way in his new capacity as president. Jim Behrens,
on his way up, moved into the vice-president status. Jim Stewart, refusing to
hand over his unkempt books, remained secretary for another year. Sylvia Weiberg
thought she could handle the job, so she was elected treasurer. Jean Braun
and Jim B211I'2I1S were Student C01-111011 representatives . Behrens, eager for easy
executive jobs, was elected vice-president of Student Council. NSome Enchanted
Eveningn was the theme for the prom. The colors were blue, coral, and white.
Bud Wilbur provided the musical atmosphere. The Queen was Beverly Gritmacker
and the King was John Ellison. The court was composed of Janice Gile, Sylvia
weiberg, Jim Stewart, and Pete Knutson. Dave Benoy was business manager of this
Twenty-four students were rounded up and compelled to follow Mr. Brown, our
advisor, through our senior year. Jim Behrens was elected confusion organiser.
Dave Benoy was elected to stand in the wings so as to support Jim and to help
him retain his sanity. Sylvia Weiberg was again given the job of counting our
num rous stores of wealth. Beverly Gritmacker was our able secretary. Jim
Behrens was finally squeezed out of Student Council and replaced by Jim Stewart
who became its able president. Janice Gile took Jean Braun's place on the
Student Council. We made lots of money selling magazin s, having bake sales,
dances, and putting on our successful class play. A good and rewarding time was
had by all on our class trip. we visited New York and Washington. Many points
of interest were forever being explored. Then came the reward, GRADUATION!
