party were: Harlan Opdahl, Orville Simonsen, John Rasmussen, Harlyn Schewe
and Co-Captains Norman Emerson and Daryl Johnson. The biggest event of the
year was being the Border League Football Champions.
We have been rushed taking senior pictures, going on our trips and
presenting our class play in the spring under the direction of Mrs. Guenther.
We were honored by a beautiful banquet and prom sponsored by the Junior
class. It's almost over, and it seems wonderful, but I wonder how many of
us would like to go back and start over again.
Now only Baccalaureate and Graduation lay before us. It seems a little
strange when we think that this is the last time the Class of 56 will be
together as a class and a part of A.H.S. But we've finished our work in high
school and are now ready for the next step--to find our place in the world.
And now we've got to start our climb all over again--reaching for success!
We, the Senior Class of 1956, of the Alden High School, Alden, Minnesota,
do hereby proclaim this to be our last Will and Testament.
To the faculty, we leave the faces of a new senior class, who are striving
for the same goal we tried to attain.
To the Juniors, we leave our seats in Social class, in hopes that they'll
make better use of them.
To the Sophomores, we leave our ability to obey and abide by the rules of
this institution. '
To the Freshmen, we leave everything the Juniors and Sophomores do not want.
To each of the Juniors, each of us leave the following:
I, Judy Casebolt, leave my safe driving lin the ditchl to Larry Young.
I, Virginia Conn, leave my angelic character to Jean Brayland, in hopes
that she will keep out of mischief.
I, Norman Emerson, leave my ability of getting athletic awards to Robert
Eastvold, in hopes that he'll make good use of them.
I, Marlene Gabel, leave my ability to cast eyes at the boys to Reta
I, Douglas Guenther, leave my excellent posture to Barbara Jean Butenhoff.

One cold morning in January 1966 we hopped aboard a rocket ship that
was destined for the thriving metropolis of Alden.
Upon landing, who should we see but Marlene Gabel riding in a u66n
Buick Convertible with her ermine flying behind. She tells us that she
is on her way to her horse ranch in Baroda.
For some reason there is an unusually large crowd in town, but we
soon learn the reason. It seems Grizzly Guenther of the Ozark Jubilee
and his partner Judy Casebolt, who is the star clarinetist for the Jubilee,
are performing in the town hall. We are anxious to see our two old friends
again, so we buy tickets for their performance. The ticket sellers are
Barbara Ramsdell and Sharon Kleven who attend the University of Bull Run
where they are cheerleaders.
Who is that distinguished looking gentleman? Oh, now I know! It is
Professor Johnson who teaches bacteriology at the University of Minnesota.
He has his M.D., D.A., P.O., B.C., and B.O. degrees. Why, there's Norman
Emerson! He is now business manager of the Rockefeller Estate. Three of
our old friends are acting as ushers. They are Anne Jensen, Dorothy Streyle
and Cathy Troska. As Anne leads us to our seats, she tells us that she ls
a soloist at nJoe'su in Blackhawk Junction. She also tells us that Dorothy
is the secretary of City Hall in Armstrong and Cathy is the nurse and
receptionist in Dr. Nelson's office.
Well, what do you know! There's little Beverly Nash, but she isn't
little anymore. She is now 6' 5U and is now star center on the Flying
Blackhawks Basketball Team. Are those two fellows that just sat down who
I think they are? Sure they areg none other than Orville Simonsen and
Russell Sorenson. Orville told us that he is a big game hunter and that
he has just come home from Africa. Russell is a uranium hunter. He just
returned from Tia Juana, Mexico, where he found about S10 worth of uranium.
That cowboy that just walked in looks quite familiar. Why it's
Hopalong Opdahl, the star of the new western movie produced by MGM, Indian
"' Anita Teufert and Charlotte Smith just came in and are walking this
way. Anita is a cartoonist at the Mansfield Gazette. Charlotte is a big
dress designer in her fashion shop in Conger.
What is Dennis Jacobs up to? He says he is a missionary to Walters,
Minnesota. He said that he had just seen John Rasmussen and that he is
now Captain of the Rawhide Ramblers Football Team.
The class of U56N is really having a reunion today.
Here come two more celebrities! Allan Petersen and Harlyn Schewe
are tap and toe dance actors in their latest movie Soft Toes and Hard Heels.
Last but not least we see Virginia Conn come in with her shorthand
pad. She is secretary of the Radio and TV Repair Shop in Alden when she
isn't campaigning for Stevenson.
Well, what do you know! We have been so interested in talking to
all our old friends that we talked clear through the performance. I
guess we'd better get back to our rocket ship.
