We hereby will the following possessions to the underclassmen: I, Barbara Marcoe, leave my ability to play volleyball to Jo Don, my old book reports to Roger Kinney so he won't fail in English. I will my figure to Larry and My Assistant Editorship on the Paper and Annual Staff to Bill Meyers so he won't have to work so hard. I, Beverly Stolz, will my volleyball position on the front line to Vernie, my Editorship on the paper and annual to Ralph Nickel, my desk behind Ralph to Kenny, so he can get good grades next year, and my ability to have my lessons on time to Karl so he won't always be late with them. I, Bob Lipskey, will my long legs to Richard Morgaridge so he won't be so little, my good looks to Karl, my ability to fight Larrie Bell to Ted, my desk to Dick Clark and my beloved play book to Cliff. I, Bernice Rueter, will my extra time to Jeanette Rueter so she won't have to spend next year studying, my left over envelopes to Ted, so he won't need to borrow any, my desk to Larrie Bell so he'll have room for all his books next year. Last but not least, I will my position on the volleyball team to whoever plays it next year. I, Jeanette Fischer, will my artistic ability to Junior Weichel so he can make his own biology Scrapbooks, especially the cover page, my diamond to Leila Nickel to go with her wrist watch, and my giggles and bubble gum to Jeanette Rueter so she won't be so quiet. To my brother, Lee, I will my desk so he will have a place to sit for the next three years. I, Lucille Taylor, will all my old pencils to Bill Meyers so Vernie won't be accusing him of thugging hers, and l will to anyone anything which will help them out in the next few years in school. We, the Senior Class, will the stage to Mr. Miller for fire wood: a typewriter to the Garden Club so they can type their own programs, and our class rings to the Freshmen and Sophomores so they won't have to wait or pay so much for them. 11 Class Prophecy As we return to Alvo in 1972, we notice that a great change has taken place, for there is now a large zoo. The name is the Alvonian Zoo. So we, the Senior Class of 1951, decided to visit this added attraction. The first person we saw was the aged zoo keeper. Much to our surprise, we saw the one and only Vernie Roelofsz, under a bright red wig. We asked her if she had very many interesting and unusual specimens. She said, "No, we haven't any foreign specimens but we do have some local ones". The first cage we came to, disclosed a large ferocious looking bull. Vernie told us that this was big bull Meyers and that he wasn't nearly as mean as he tried to be. In the adjoining cage there was a big fat coon. Bob Lipskey exclaimed, "There is my old friend Larrie Bell". Larrie looked at Bob and sighed, "Don't you wish you were in here, I'm very lonesome!" We hurried on to the next cage for fear Bob would join him. As we came upon it we were astonished by the unusual looking panda bear. Lucille looked at it in astonishment and she ex- claimed, "Why it's our beloved superintendent, Mr. Baker". Mr. Baker answered, "As a matter of fact, yes". Moving on, Vernie warned us to stay away from the next cage for there was a wild and woolie pussy cat. This was none other than Karl Clark who, in the past few years, had grown old and fierce with long crooked claws. When we saw Karl we all exclaimed what a pathetic sight. Beside him was a little coon who was for- ever teasing the wild pussy cat. Bernice's face grew white and she said, "Oh, Ted, it just couldn't be you could it? " While looking at the little coon we heard a deep croaking sound. There on a log sat Cessor Bullfrog Nickel. Vernie spoke up and said, "This is the only per- son who turned out to be a musician in tne Junior Class". Much to our surprise we saw the laughing hyena laughing insanely at the croaking that came out of Cessor Nickel's throat. We saw a dark green Chevie parked in back of the zoo so we knew it must be none other than Cliff Tegler. Pacing ut and downthe aisles between the cages was the animal feeder. When Barbara and Beverly inquired as to who it was, Vernie informed us that it was Oliver Mayfield, the former Alvo coach. He was now engaged in coaching the animals to do their tricks. Chasing Mr. Mayfield up the aisle was an ornery little porcupine. He was trying to test his quills in Mr. Mayfield to see if they were sharp enough. Jeanette backed away and screamed, "It's that dangerous Kenny Gamlin again". This trip through the Alvonian zoo was getting more unusual the further on we went. The next and last cage we came to had a trio of little monkeys with a mother monkey. The little monkeys were sitting In a straight row. One had his hands over his ears, another had his hands over his eyes, and the last had his hands over his mouth. We asked Vernie what it was and she answered, "That's Jean, Opal and DeVee. Mrs. Miller is teaching them to "Hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil". Since this was all of the specimens in the zoo, we decided maybe it was time to put an end to this day of surprises and so journeyed back to our modern homes on the outskirts of Hollywood, California. IZ Class History The Senior Class of l951 did not enter Alvo High together. The first one to enter the class was Bernice Rueter when she started in the second grade. In the fourth grade, Lucille Taylor and Beverly Stolz, two other members of the present class joined her. Jeanette Fischer entered the class in the eighth grade. At the eighth graduation exercises, five members of the eighth grade were graduated into high school. They were Jeanette Fischer, Beverly Stolz, Lucille Taylor, Bernice Rueter and James Crowe, who left during the summer to start high school in Chicago. Our first day in high school found another member of our class, Barbara Marcoe, who came from Springfield, Nebraska. During our Freshman year, Beverly Stolz was chosen to be in the Junior play "I-le Cou1dn't Marry Five". Barbara Marcoe was also chosen to be in the Senior play "Mama's Baby Boy". Another highlight of our Freshman year was the Initiation, when we all dressed up in odd looking clothes and did stunts for the amusement of the Seniors. Our Sophomore year, all members of our class were chosen to be in the Junior -Senior play "Backwoods Romeo". They were, Lucille Taylor, Jeanette Fischer, Bernice Rueter, and Beverly Stolz. An operetta was also given that year, in which all the members of our class took part. The title of the operetta was "Moon Maiden". The Junior year, was the big year for our class. The last member of the present class joined us. He was Bob Lipskey, who came from Walton to round out the class to six members. The Junior-Senior play "Six Wives On A Rampage" was one of the main events of the year. Bernice Rueter was the stage manager. All the rest of the class had parts in the play. Another highlight was the Junior -Senior Banquet which was held at the Lincoln Hotel. The theme was centered around volleyball which was forked out by the Juniors. Last but not least came the biggest year--the Senior year. Many things happened that year, too numerous to mention. Some of the main things were football games, which our only boy took a big part ing the football rallies and victory dances, in which the whole class took part, the dramatic club banquet, the dramatic club play, "Life of Riley"g the Junior-Senior play, "Red-Headed Royalty From Arkansas"g the Junior-Senior Banquetg and finally Baccalaureate and Commencement which is our final school program in which our class, The Seniors of '51, will take part. 13 STANDING: Left to Righti Kenny Gamlin Bill Meyers Mr. Baker Karl Lee Clark Larrie Bell SEATED: Left to Right: Ted McNeese Vernadean Roelofsz Ralph Nickel Sophomores un iors K STANDING: Left to Right: Dick Printz Junior Neichel Mr. Mayfield Roger Kinney Robert Kellogg SEATED: Left to Rightg Jeanette Rueter Phyllis Marcoe Leila Nickel Jo Don McKinnon Freshmen CLASS OFFICERS FRESHMAN President ....... . . .

When the news of his arrival is announced, the girls immediately mistake his given name of "Prince" for a royal title and believe that his il 'fitting clothes and his awkwardmanners are merely an eccentricity. Much to the - iscomfort of the bashful young hillbilly, the girls fawn upon him. That is, all exce at one, Ethel, to whom Prince is immediately attracted. Naturally, because of his fe. ninine attention, Prince is not in high favor with the boys. For a year or more, a llackmail scheme has been perpetrated on some of the students. It has been the cus :om of the blackmailer to get a snapshot of the in- tended victim and then super mpose the photograph on the background of the school office. A letter is the 1 sent to the victim, asking for five hundred dollars, and if the money is not forthc oming, the photograph is sent to the school officials after the office has been looted. Thus the innocent party is expelled from school. Believing Prince Michaels to be of royal birth and therefore in command of unlimited money, he becomes an immediate prey of the blackrnailer. But with the help of Fordyce Green, an.-ther intended student victim, Prince sets to work and unravels the mystery and tcgether they catch the culprit. The criminal turns out to be a person that no one would ever suspect, for it is Hans, the music teacher. The trick used by Prince and Fordyce to capture him and get his signed con- fession is one of the numerous things that make the play a hit. 5. . l K V , C CAST OF CHARACTERS Prince Michaels Dale Nellis .

Although heavily favored to capture the deepest most part of the cellar, the Orioles six-man club rose to seize the county championship. Games played by the Orioles during the season of 1950 were as follows: September 15-- September 29-- October 6 ----- October 13-- October 20-- October 25-- November 3- November 10 -The Orioles beat a hard playing Union six 44 to 8. -The Orioles won their second victory by swamp- ing a weak Ceresco six 46 to 0.

Oh boy! This is fun!! The Orioles won another easy victory over an un- prepared Gretna six 47 to 0. The Alvo Orioles raced over a hard fighting Elmwood bunch. The Orioles clinched a tie for the Cass County Championship by winning 46 to 0. The Orioles clinched the Cass County Champion- ship by whalloping last year's champs, Nehawka, to the tune of 59 to 12. The Orioles suffered their only loss of the season. losing to a hard fighting Sterling club 34 to 20. Track 89' Field For the first time in many years Alvo is resuming track and field activities Since the date of this publication is too early for coverage of our meets, there isn't much we can say about it, except that all of the boys are participating. We are sure to have as good a track team as our football and basketball teams were because the team is under the coaching of "Ollie". A couple of baseball games will be played. Several interclass games will be played also. 'Ex sp' X .., .X , 1 'f' . ff. gl, 4 'W' - J- f 25 Volleyball The volleyball team was under the coaching of Mr. Baker this year.

When the men of the town hear that a new barber is coming to town, they are angry and resentful, holding a hate for anyone who tries to clean up their personal appearance. The last barber had been shot. Speedy received one reply from an I. M. Brown and hired the person with- out having first met him. When the new barber arrives and is a lovely lady, Mrs. Ida Mae Brown, a widow, the men are delighted and eager to patronize the barber shop. But the ladies of Roarin' Creek are not a bit happy about it, for they believe Ida is beating their time. Bess, Speedy's housekeeper and cook is especially jealous, for she has been sweet on him for years. So the girls hold an indignation meeting and decide to dress up and become "citified" to win back their wandering boy friends. The results of this are hilarious. Then Ida meets Alan, a former boy friend, who has migrated to Idaho and is working a claim back in the hills. Having heard of the pretty barber, he comes to town to get a shave. Both are speechless with surprise when they meet, and realize there is still a spark of the old flame burning. But matters are compli- cated by a fiery Spanish girl, Carmen, who Alan has been "settin' up to". The enraged Carmen even makes an attempt on lda's life which Alan foils. But in the end, Carmen realizes she has lost Alan to Ida and gallantly gives him up. So Alan and Ida decide to marry and settle down in Roarin' Creek. This is heartily approved by all, especially the men, provided lda will continue running the barber shop for "She't the best danged barber we ever had in these here parts .
