The EQ13-195. Qf 1950
Half-way between the centuries 1
Ah, me, how time does fly!
Six years ago these boys and girls
were new to Alger High,
Eleven young Americans,
And none just like the rest,
Exceptlng that they all love life
And fun, fair play, and tests.
They never, never, whisper
Or talk out in study hall,
And labor on, both dey and night
Models for younger students, ell.
They always are so desolate
If business calls them elsewhere,
And they are forced to miss e class
While they play base-ball, or attend e fair.
f-A - -
The Eollies of 1950 CON'T
But let's consider the individuals-
Each boy and girl by turn-
Brilliant scholars, angels ali,
Eager to see and hear and le 1'!
Take them one by one, and ayl ii all
An exceedingly hard-working gangj
A difficult task to coax tier no stoo
When the class bell finally lang,
The girls love our old mimeograph,
They'll turn the crank for hoursg
And every Friday afternoon
They sing of love and flowers.
Kathleen's a shy, sweet, charming lass
who hides behind her glasses.
The longer we know her, the better we like her,
And enjoy her in our classes.
Ruby's a girl to rely on,
Ever cheerful and gay-
A good dependable character
T6 work, or put on a play.
No matter how many lines she has,
She learns them with gust and vim,
She andfifadleilin HIt's a Deten-
Ruby's distinctly in the swim.
A friend who does not shrink from work
And lets her voice ring out,
Is Ginny Lawrence, a true straight shooter,
Never known to pout.
The shortest gal in the class this year
Is little Marcine, bless her heart 2
Dreamy eyes, and charming ways,
CMajor always takes her part.D
Now these four girls,
They seem to think the world of one another,
Always presenting a solid front,
Each for all and 'tother.
You're familiar with Buster Nichols
and his pack of gum or more?
Just ask him how the highway man
Rode up to the old inn door I
We're glad that Norman stuck it out,
Long time he kept the teachers dizzyf
Off again, on again, gone again-
Finnegan Cramer's technique is a tizzy.
Qhe Follies of l95Q CON'T
With us for the past five years
Has been Faurot, the business man,
Treasurer of this and that,
The magazine drive he ran.
And then, besides, time after time,
He went out and brought in ads.
His system of getting slips always white
Is the envy of all other lads.
Lloyd Lawrence has a specialty-
His pose as the strong silent typeg
But stick arou d, and the mischief you'll see
Dance in his eye, when the time is ripe.
In every class, there always is
A boy like Ralphie Dyer-
Fond of taking the other side,
And stirring the teacher's ire
And yet, you have to like him,
For he's proved a friend in needg
More than once, he's helped us out
And shown a fine spirit, indeed.
The president of this senior class
Is Gerald, with his tuneful harpg
The brown-eyed guy, with the wistful smile
Can play it flat or sharp.
Pretty good in theatricals, too,
Remember Runaway Jim?
And Andrew's Uncle in the Junior play?
We can't get along without him.
Good gracious me 1 I almost forgot
That golden-hatred blonde, Paul Wischmeyer,
He used to write his.memory work
And blush like a four-alarm fire.
Now, Paul, we've always liked youg
We are soothed by your quiet nays.
It's been fun to have you with us
Don't get red at this well-earned praise.
I've called this the Hfollies of fiftyn
A verse for my girls and boys,-
nNot at the top, but climbingu-
Here's wishing success and all joys.
HNot at the top, but climbing,N
A pretty good motto, it seems,
Always look up and not backward,
Keep your eye on the star and its gleams,
t Mrs. Helen D. Sherburn

- SENIOR GRUMBLER
Boy were we glad this was the last semester of this school
year. We no more than got over our midterm exams than we started
on other tests. Don't you think we ever got tired of studying?
It seemed that everything went hay-wire for us Seniors. At
first we couldn't decide upon a studio to go to have our pict-
ures taken. Our motto could have easily been Wwe agree to dis-
agreen. After about two weeks of debating we decided upon the
Failor Studio, and we are glad we chose them as we were all
very well pleased with our pictures. '
Then our class began to dwindle. Our classmatt Shirley
Kirts moved to Florida. Later one of the Senior boys cou1dn't
make up his mind as to whether he wanted to finish school or
not. We are glad you decided to graduate with us, Norman.
After years of agony, they fixed the auditorium seats.
Thanks to Mr. McCoy and the Industrial Arts boys we can now
For the benefit of the High School students, they should
have put either a stoo-light or a sign reading, 'Beware of'
the 7th graders. Travel at your own risk.W I believe they
are putting Jet-propulsion on them now-days. Honestly, the
way they tore through the halls.' It was hardly safe to go
from one class to another.
What is this younger generation coming to? We had sev-
eral cases of puppy love this year. Especially the case
Myrtle and Ernie had on each other. Gosh, they were insep-

No wonder we didn't win very many of our besketball games
last year. Some of our better players were checked most of the
time. How did you expect us to get our lessons and play good
basketball et the same time?
There was one course in school that seemed to have been
open for only the Junior and Senior boys. nS19GD1hg!n What
would have happened if the girls of' both classes did the same
thing? Why d1dn't you boys try going to bed earlier for a
Why did We have to study that hard English Literature,
Mrs. Sherburn? Hardly any of us ever reed it and we d1dn't
understand it when we did read it.
What were you trying to do to us, Mr. Soesh? Those exers-
cises we took at the beginning of the gymn classes didn't
develop muscles for ue girlst It only made us stiff.
By the way, Earl, did you ever try heating the gymn? Oh!
now I know why we took all thoses exercises Mr. Soash, to get
warmed up. '
In spite of all the grumbling we've done, we did really
enjoy our senior yeer in dearnO1d Alger High' and we will
miss it very much come next fallt

Ralph Dyer Joined our class in the Third Gradeg Norman Cramer

meyer and rald Johns in the Eighth Grade.
The greatest event of our Grade School life was our Sixth
Grade Commencement. We received our d1ploma's and then were
to enter the ner building.
Some of our former classmates thvt have left us since we enter
ed High School are: Nancy Keith, who moved to Florida in her
Freshman yeorg Chnlmer Holliday left us and Joined the Army at
the beginning of his Junior yearg Lloyd Hopkins moved to Michi-
gan st the end of his Junior year: and Shirley Klrts moved to
Floridr st the beginning of her Senior yesr.There are now elev-
us left to graduate, '
In the Sophomore yenr, Morcine Underwood and Shirley Kirts
were chosen for the Honor Societygbut when Shirley moved, Ruby
was chosen as the new member.
Ralph Dyer played basketball and baseball in his Sophomore,
and Junior years. Lloyd Lawrence played basketball and baseball
in his Sophomore,Jun1or, and Senior years.

' Class Historian,
Kathleen Moore. ,
Having spring fever a little early this year, I decided I
would beging my spring cleaning and since the attic had became
pretty cluttered up in the last few months, I thought there would
be a good place to start. J 1
As I began moving boxes and trunks around I ran across a
large box marked USehoo1 M1scellaneous.N The memories of my
school days came back to ne. I thought it would be fun to stop-
a few minutes and look through the box to see what was there.
On top of the box was lying my grade cards from my first to
the twelfth grades. I can still remember how excited I was on
grade card day. Among the other things I found in the box was ny
sixth grade diploma, certificate from the eighth grade tests,
favors and memory books from the Honor Society Banqu ts and the
Junior and Senior Proms, play books, my Senior diploma and other
articles that brought back memories. The article that interested
me most was our '5O' Annual. I hastily turned to the Senior page
As I sat there looking at the pictures of my classmates I thought
how far we Seniors had cone since we graduated.
There at the top-of the page is Ruby Preston-Campbell now.
She and Bradley were married two years after she graduated.' They
have a large farm and two children. .
I understand that Virginia Lawrence has recently been pro-
moted to a Lieutenant in the N.A.F,'s. She Joined the WAF's a ,
few months after she graduated. She had a military wedding last
spring. Both she and her husband are members of the Air Foreex
, The other girl in the senior class was Kathleen Moore. She
was a stenographer for three years to a good looking lawyer.
They are now married and have twin girls.
