rom Aiexis To Times Square
About five o'clock on a June morning the senior class of '53 boarded the bus for
our trip to New York. The first stop was at Peoria to change bus drivers. At the end
of the first day we stayed all night in Columbus, Ohio.
The next day we left the hotel at about 7:30, saw the Ohio University, and con
tinued traveling until we reached Gettysburg, where we retired for the night after
a tour of the famous battle site.
On Wednesday and Thursday we toured Washington, D. C. and Mount Vernon
seeing the Congressional Library, Congress in Session, The White House, The Su
preme Court Building, Ford Theater, Smithsonian Ins.titute, Lincoln Memorial and
Arlington. Going on our way, we arrived in Annapolis after lunch Thursday. We got
off the bus and saw the chapel, museum, gym, and Bancroft Hall at the Naval Academy
We were also in time to see the Dress Parade.
ln Philadelphia we saw Constitution Hall and the Liberty Bell. We arrived in
New York via New Jersey Turnpike through Lincoln Tunnel. We stayed at the well
located Hotel Chesterfield. Many points of interest were near us.
'I'he next day we took a tour of the city, and ended by going on top of the N. B. C
building to see the city by night.
The following day being Sunday, some of us went to church. Our group left the
city about 1:30 in the afternoon and drove out to West Point. We stayed all night
at Poughkeepsie where we saw famous Vassar College.
We left early in the morning and took a route where we could see Hyde Park
We arrived in Niagara Falls, N. Y. in the evening and had reservations at Hotel
Niagara, a very nice hotel. The falls were surely beautiful at night when the colored
lights were on.
On Tuesday we left Hotel Niagara and drove to Goat Island. At the end of this
day we stayed all night in Detroit.
The last day of the trip we left Detroit and drove all day arriving home about
9 in the evening.
That was a nice dream, wasn't it? I guess I'm thinking too much about gradua
tion and the trip. Oh well, this is going to happen to us this June.

From Stand-Ins To Stars
On August 27, 1949, thirty-five newly-hired Stand-Ins entered the maze of the
ACHS-TV station to gain experience and, therefore, become Stars. All was well ln the
first three weeksg then came the initiation of the new members of the cast. How at-
tractive we were in our outlandish costumes and somewhat smeared faces! To lead us
in this first year of training we chose Dick Lafferty as president, Dean Staley as vice-
president, Pat McCormick as secretary and treasurer, and Mrs. McKie as advisor.
During the remainder of the year, we often found ourselves lost in the intricacies of
algebra and English, but were sufficiently recovered to attend a banquet given in our
honor by the Feature Players.
Vacation being over, thirty-four Feature Players flocked to the doors of ACHS-TV.
To guide us in this second training period we chose the following leaders: Alice Conn,
Dick Staggs, Carole Corbin, Virginia Armstrong, and Mr. Mills. The year was a busy
one involving various parties and money-making schemes to finance the annual Fresh-
man-Sophomore Banquet. Having safely passed through this year, we were now-ready
to accept the responsibilities of being Understudies.
At the beginning of our third year in training, there were thirty-two Understudies
striving for the role of Stars. Officers were Margaret Bruington, Virginia Armstrong,
Donna Armstrong, Bob O'Brien, and Mr. Sturm. Most of the major activities were
planned for the purpose of making money to finance the Junior-Senior Banquet and
Prom. During April the cast of "Strictly Formal" could be found practicing frequently.
The play was successfully staged on April 16 and 17. On May 24, the Understudies were
hosts to the Stars at the Prom and banquet.
Now, at last, we had achieved the esteemed positions of Stars. To guide us through

station were ready for their entrance on the world's stage.

We proudly present to you the,Unders-tudies, who next year
will step into the spotlight and become Stars. Welcoming the
title of upper classm-en, the Juniors have worked diligently to
become honor students and to acquire skill and leadership in
extra-curricular activities. All year was spent in making money
and plans for both the Junior - Senior Prom and, of course, the
Senior trip. ,
Special recognition was given to these outstanding Under-
studies: Roxie Olson and Pat Moore, Ch-eerlleadersg Rose Ann

-I-bis Is Your Lite
As I sit here in front of my television set, the year 1963
flashes across the scre-en and the master of ceremonies comes
out and announces the program "This Is Your Life." In this
show the Seniors are still starring. I'll just sit back and relax
and watch what my old "cronies" are doing.
In New York I see Dorothy Anders-on as ileading soloist of
Gene "Ozzie" Osborn's all girl orch-estra, the Ozzatonies.
Donna and Virginia of course had a double wedding and Don-
na now has a "Rhoring" household of three little sailors and
Virginia, who married Coach Dick Lafferty of Alexis, is raising
little "All Stars."
Shirley Bloomfield always interested in libraries, opened up
a new one-guess where --in Kirkwood!
Next time I need groceries, I'll have t-0 go and seo Barbara
Jean Brown, who now 'IS proprietor of Cash's Store.
In Chicago We find that Margaret owns the "Maggy-Jane"
Boxing Arena which features "Big Al" Conn as the IIe:1vy
Weight Champion of the world.
Carole Corbin Purlee, a traveling salesvvoman, does all her
business in a little blue Ford while Dudley stays at home mak-
ing blueberry muffins.
Not too far from here in Rio, Marlene Elliott runs the Rio
Ball Room and gives David Waight, who is still a frequent at-
On another channel 'is Vernita Haywood who to-ok over Ann

Give And Take
Before us is a group of articles which the seniors wish to give away. We decided
to have a quiz program making Dudley Purlee master of ceremonies, teachers and

Any boy who thinks he can excell Winford Legate in playing Romeo with any

Another prize offered that no one chose was Marilyn Lundeen's nickname of
"Lucy" which was given to anyone "fortunate" enough to have the name of Lucille.
Irvin Ray's title of "Derby" was offered to anyone who wanted it.
Next year's senior girls won Marilyn Reynold's mischievous antics in home ec.
Dean Staley's interest in Moline went to anyone who thinks he can get it.
To anyone who can afford to buy the gas, Stanley Tyrrell will gladly give his job
of chauffeuring the sophomore girls.
Dave Waight's temper will be awarded to anyone who thinks he can control it.
Then came the time for the teachers to come forward. In this section of the pro-
gram the questions were, of course, more difficult. The teachers didn't choose their
prizes. The seniors decided on them.
To Mr. Staggs we gave our frequent trips to the office after we have "left"
Mr. Clark was given our sincere thanks for being such a helpful friend and class
We awarded Mrs. Yeager our white gym suits and "good" sportsmanship.
Mrs. Hussey won all of our vocabulary books, since we have the words clearly
imprinted on our minds.
Miss Boley smilingly accepted our "dear suits"
and our messes in the kitchen in
girls' and boys' home ec.
To Mr. Zimmerman we gave our noise in first
. period study hall. Maybe it will
be quieter next year without us.
Mr. Manley smiled as we gave him our undiscovered musical talents and our
thirty minutes a day practice.
Mr. Sturm accepted our athletic abilities to strengthen next year's team.
Our tamperings with the office equipment went to Mary Jean
Mrs. Sparrow was given our commercial "understandings" and a few chicken
scratches from the "large" shorthand class.

The Mad Hatters
The Hatters! What a family! Mad as March hares! Crazy as loons! Dippier than
the Big Dipper! And nuttier than a fruit cake! In fact, they are all nuts! Margaret
Hatter, the mother, is nuts about drarnatics. Joe Hatter, the father, is nuts about fish-
ing. Gigi, their daughter, is nuts about athletics. Bunny, their son, is nuts about
photography and Angelica, the housekeeper, is just plain nuts. '
Grandma Hatter supported them for years and suddenly decides it's time to quit.
She gave them all three months to prove they can make their own living. And from
then on, things happen fast when they decide to commercialize their hobbies. At the
end of the three months all failed but Joe, who brings home the bacon.
Can you imagine a young man, over twenty-one, who has never seen or talked to
a girl? Well, Romeo Montague was in that predicament. His parents died when he was
a child and his uncle, a scientist, took him into the wilds of Canada, where he reared
and educated the boy. Larry McNeil and Rex Simonds, two Americans, ran across
Romeo and asked him to visit them in the States. Romeo arrived at the McNeil estab-
lishment, by airplane, still unacquainted with women. But, in this household were
Larry's sisters, two young ladies who were anything but shrinking violets. There also
were the Spanish maid, La Reina, and Orpha, Larry's fiancee, to say nothing of young
and vivacious Aunt Rachel. Romeo was young, handsome, and unspoiled, and all the
women fell for him and how! Larry and his inheritance problem - Rex and his smashed
auto - all these problems piled together kept the McNeil home in an uproar, but
Romeo adjusted them.

In order to meet successfully life's situations, the Future Homemakers decided
to profit by working with a small budget and a big aim. Monthly meetings were held
for discussing problems and hearing speakers. An all-school Christmas party was held
after a basketball game. The group also went Christmas caroling. Many members
attended Rally Day at Gladstone-Oquawka. A Come-As-You-Are-Breakfast helped make
a profit, but the highlight of the year was the annual tea and style show given for the
members of the Woman's Club.

The second semester Miss Boley successfully taught a new subject, Boys' Home
Economics. During the seventh and eighth periods, all A.C.H.S. could smell the de-
licious food which the Happy Hermits were cooking. The boys also studied etiquette,
family relations, and sewing. Although they realize they are not like Betty Furness, on
television, they know that they have accomplished many of their aims. All of the girls
feel confident now that there will not be many hermits left in the club after a few
years-Reason? The race is on! Who does not covet a man that can stir a potent brew?

On the evening of May 16, the juniors were
hosts to the seniors at a banquet and prom. The old
hall of ACHS-TV had been transformed into a mini-
ature Hawaii. The Stars of the evening were wel-
comed in true Hawaiian style with her colorful Leis
and her gay "Aloha"
Against a background of soft music and moon-
light the festivities began. The banquet, served by
a group of sophomore girls, dressed appropriately
for the occasion, was prepared by the E. U. B.
church. Groups of four, seated around small tables
on the balcony, enjoyed a delicious four course din-
ner. In addition to the honored guests, the board of
education, faculty, and friends were present to
participate in an evening pf gaiety. The Hawaiians
entertained them with characteristic songs and
toasts. In return the seniors read their will and
prophecy, which produced much fun and laughter.
After dinner the guests assembled in the gym,
which had for the evening been converted into a
dance pavilion. The dreamy music of Brad Wil-
liams' orchestra was surely suggestive of faraway
Hawaii. At intormission fruit punch and Hawaiian
cookies were served. At the stroke of twelve
thanks were given the juniors for a festive eve-
ning and good luck and Aloha were extended to the

We enjoy several social activities through our secret pill palsg we have a

she must keep the fans yelling to encourage the team to fight onward to victory.
This year the students elected Carole Corbin, Virginia Armstrong, and Patty

ville pulled another upset as they really played good ball to the tune of 13-0, which
caused the Cardinals a bad loss in the Little Six Standing. The Cards went on to win
the rest of the games defeating R.O.V.A. and beating for the first and only time a
Corpus Christi outfit, which could really pass the pigskin.
This year's hardwood team had a shortage of players but they were fairly tall
and had plenty of fight.
The Cardinals really got hot as they ran up a season high score of 88-54 decision
The highlight of the year was with the Aledo boys as we worked hard and long
for a very sweet victory to the tune of 57-52. This is the first time in many years that
Alexis has defeated an Aledo basketball team. Dick Lafferty was top point winner for
the Cards with plenty of help from Tyrell and Staggs.
Track has just started but the returning lettermen are making the season look
bright already. Lettermen are Dick Lafferty, Dave Waight, Dick Staggs, Jim Jones,
Larry Anderson, Bill Lafferty.
George McConnell received first team honors in All Star ratings and Stanley
Tyrrell, Dudley Purlee, and Bob O'Brien received honorable mention These boys
earned the honor given them by working together and by working hard. I
Alexis has a new trophy as a result of last year's efforts. The Little Six Cross
Country team won the last meet to be held in the Little Six and also the only one
Alexis has won for a long time. These boys won it and here is how they finished:

gather- Daughter Qanquet
On February 24, all the G. A. A. girls invited their fathers to
be their guests for dinner and an evening of fun. The girls di-
vided into groups and decorated the tables into 8 sports respec-
tively: shooting for baskets, darts, pitch, bowling, ping pong,
badminton, checkers, and shuffleboard. After the dinner, the
men played all 8 sports competitively. A box of candy was given
the group winning the highest score. To complete the evening,
a king, Bernard McGuire, and 2 attendants, Lyle Tyrrell and Os-
car Tournouist, were chosen by means of lucky numbers. A tie
pin with "Dad" initialed on it was given the king, the attend-
ants received boxes of candy. They reigned during a small en-
tertainment put on by classes: freshmen, pyramid building,
sophom-ores and juniors, basketball quarter, seniors, 2 square
dances. The fathers left proclaiming the "Welcome Dads"
greeting on th-e wall really rang sincerely in their hearts.
As we climbed the ladder of success from Stand-Ins to Stars,
we have had many hardships to overcome. These hardships
would not have been overcome with-out the help of our teachers
and our parents. They have played a great part in all of -our
lives. It would take pages and pages to te'l you all the things
you probably know - how these people, OUR SUPPORTERS,
helped us through our trials and tribulations. In a few words we
are trying to thank them for everything - little and big. It's
very hard to do, but Mother, Dad, teachers, and friends, thank

We See Cari Sandburg
One of the highlights of the year for the junior and senior English students was
the day they greeted Carl Sandburg, the noted novelist and poet, at the Galesburg
depot, January Sth.
his life and literary works. The bulletin board was arranged attractively for Sandburg's
birthday. The board was headlined in black letters. "We Proudly Present Carl Sand-
burg." Below the headlines were pictures, magazine and newspaper clippings. A re-
view of his new book, "Always The Young Strangers," was also given. In order 120
complete the study, the classes toured his birthplace on East Third Street. In 1947,
the cottage was bought and refinished in honor of the poet. The so-called Lincoln room
was added for the purpose of keeping Lincoln relics, which Sandburg had collected.
This 19th century decorated room holds items such as powder horns, several Lincoln
portraits, famous letters and speeches, and a replica of a covered wagon. On the
bookshelves between a fireplace, which is made of historical bricks, are placed Sand-
burg's books as "Remembrance Rockf' a volume of Lincoln's "War Years," "Ameri-
can Songbag," and his latest book called "Always The Young Strangers." In the
original three rooms where the Sandburgs lived were old-fashioned dishes, irons, and a
coffee grinder. The quilts of the trundle bed were hand dyed and woven.
One can read his literature, study his biography, and visit his bir-thplace, but
still can't really appreciate this extraordinary man until one can talk to him and watch
his kind face as he calmly speaks in his friendly voice. The students can now really
appreciate Carl Sandburg and his works, because they talked to him when he arrived
unexpectedly at Galesburg from Chicago. The students were photographed with the
poet for the "Life" Magazine and "The Galesburg Register Mail."
This, indeed, was a highlight of the year.
11, To help celebrate Sandburg's 75th birthday, Mrs.-Hussey's English classes studied
