Annawan High School
During the summer of 1948, the interior of Annawan
High School was redesigned. The study hall was reduced
in size and an additional room was made in the front of the
former study hall. There is now an enclosed hallway run-
ning along the north wall of the old study hall. The janitor's
room was moved and a boys lounge now is in place of the
old janitor's room. A girls lounge was made by redecorating
the grade school shop room.
ln behalf of the Senior Class of 1949, we wish to dedi-
cate the 1949 Tom Tom Echoes to Miss Roberta W'alters,
who has been our advisor for the past two years.
Because she has been loyal to our class through the busiest
years of our school life, we are proud to acknowledge her
VVe feel, therefore, that it is proper to bestow this honor
on Miss VV alters for her service to the class and to Annawan
High School. H

The team work in our class was proved
when basketball season came around, each
was given a special assignment that had to
be completed the night of a game and saw
to it that it was. All this work helped
boost our financial condition enormously.
Not everything we undertook ran along
so smoothly. For example our experience
with corn picking. The bad weather was
just too bad.
After all our trials and joys we came out
on top of the world but promised our-
selves to make up for those unseen games.

packed auditorium. It is the mirthful story
of Susan Blake, a "career girl," and the
troubles which beset those two loyal mus-
keteers, johnny Clover and Spud Erwin,
editor and business manager of the Pres-
ton High School Penquin. .Every charact-
er in the cast has a good part and all the
seniors enjoyed playing their parts.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY'
VV hen school opened, there were twen-
ty-one seniors enrolled, but we were sor-
ry to lose Shirley Thompson and Pat
One of the first things we did was to
choose our class colors, American Beauty
Rose and Gray, and our motto, "Each for
the other and all for the class."
In October we had a closed class dance.
The purpose of this dance was to teach
the boys how to dance fast. The dance
was for seniors only and we were fortun-
ate enough to have jerry De Vrieze play
At Christmas-time, Miss VValters and
Miss Anthony threw a shin-dig at their
home for us. lVe drew names and ex-
On january 21, the seniors sponsored a
"Sweater Swing" and let the boys show
their new dancing techniques to the blare
The class attended High School Visit-
ing Day at lVestern State Teacher's Col-
lege, in March. VVe had a lot of fun ex-
ploring the tantalizing buildings of the

Because of a bad case of spring fever
we were allowed to have a one-day class
trip in May, so we went to Lake Storey
and had a picnic.
Baccalaureate was an event of May 22,
and on the great day of May 27, nineteen
proud seniors received their diplomas at
Last Will and Testament of the Class of '49
NVe, the Seniors of 1948-49, after pass-
ing four yaers in Annawan high school,
do proclaim this our last will and testa-
All chewing gum found under chairs
or desks, unclaimed pencils and handker-
chiefs, discarded notebooks and notes,
obsolete textbooks, candy machine rules
and regulations, to under-classmen who
must solemnly swear to put them to good
I, Dolores Ufheil, leave my ability to
be late for Home Room to Carol Nowers.
I, Vernon Bollengier, leave my athletic
ability to Bud Brown. Here's hoping you
win lots of games next year, Bud.
I, Greta Gail Peart, leave my ability to
talk more and say less to Marlene Gripp.
I, Phyllis Decker, leave my dimples to
I, Thomas Dhamers, leave my motor-
cycle to Leslie Stockton. Don't have too
many spills, Les.
I, jack I-Iulslander, leave my witty re-
marks in class to IN ard jolmson. Careful,
XV ard, don't get thrown out of class.
I, Rita Croegaert, leave my black bal-
lerinas and my flashy scarfs to Gretchen
I, Stanley Billiet, leave my "art of
speech" to john Gripp. Don't enter any
speech contests though, john.
I, Wayne jacobs, leave my speedy vi-
tality to Betty Thompson.
I, Helen DeDecker, leave my ability
to get a diamond before graduation to
I, Louis Teerlinck, leave my black hair
to Marilyn DeMink.
I, Barbara jean I-Iouch, leave my gift'
of "grab" to Rose VVancket.
I, Frank Seyller, leave my manly physi-
que to Mr. Ehrig-not that he needs it,
and my good looks to john Gripp.
I, Norma Bollengier, leave my art of
playing the clarinet to Geraldine Fronk.
I, Eugene Vandersnick, leave my
charming ways to Elaine Van Hyfte, and
the title of "heartbreaker" to Bud Brown.
I, Shirley Fronk, leave my ability to get
along with the teachers to Charlotte
I, Edward jorgenson, leave my ability
to shave not more than twice a week to
I, Eugene Eilers, leave my ability to go
steady with a sophomore girl to Ralph
Vande Voorde, but not my girl, Ralph.
I, Lowell Gerber, leave my ability to
get on the principal's "B" list to Marilyne
Signed and sealed this twenty-seventh
day of May in the year of our Lord nine-
teen hundred and forty-nine.
Wfhile attending the New York
lVorld's Fair, with my exhibition of Lid's
for Kids, l chanced to see Louis Teer-
linck, the famous architect, who had a
huge exhibit there, and he told me about
all the other graduates of 1949.
It seems that Dolores Ufheil is teach-
ing Algebra, Geometry and Trigonome-
try at her Alma Mater. She also assists
Mr. lihrig in her spare time.
Gene Eilers, the famous lawyer, is
busy in his office with the Scragg vs.
Scragg case. He predicts that Scragg will
win, provided that no other Scragg inter-
Norma Bollengier is the head nurse at
Mayo Brothers in Minnesota, we hear
that there is a certain l'Swede,' involved.
The first Republican President for the
past sixteen years is Frank Seyller, who
gained his experience in presidential af-
fairs when he was a senior at Annawan
Ed Jorgensen, president of the HYVC Do
Nothing Club," has his trained flea cir-
cus here at the fair-we hear that he is
drawing large crowds.
Stanley Billiet has excelled Arthur
Murray's methods, in his Graceful Girlies
School of Dancing. He says that his
classes are so large that they make all of
New York tremble when they are prac-
I saw a huge tower in the distance, and
Louis told me that VVayne Jacobs, the
world's greatest astronomer, has his ob-
On entering the journalism Display, I
found Phyllis Decker acting as head
guide. She is editor of her own magazine
called "Frilly Filliesf'
Here on the Midway I see another
familiar face, it is none other than Gene
Vandersnick. I-Ie is selling "Snicker's
Sneakers for Peeker Seekers."
Another Midway attraction is Barbara
jean Houch's Souvenir Stand. She had
made key chains by filling small marbles
with water from the Illinois river.
Rita Croegaert has a booth next door
to Barb's. She is a handwriting expert, it
seems that she can tell your present, past,
and future by looking at your handwrit-
Lowell Gerber and Shirley Fronk are
grandstand performers every day. Their
act is a very daring one, performed on
wires 500 feet in the air. They also hang
by their feet on sky hooks.
jack Hulslander, Tom Dhamers, and
Vernon Bollengier, "T he Three
Scroogesf' are featured at the evening
performance in the grandstand. The
highlight of their act is when they bal-
ance a fish egg on their noses .
It seems that Helen DeDecker intend-
ed to come to the Fair, but she is on IOLII'
in England with her husband and his
As the sun sinks slowly behind the hor-
izon, and the carousel music fades away,
in memory I see the passing parade of
the Class of '49 of Annawan high. Each
in his own way has achieved a relative
degree of fame and fortune, and has
proved himself a credit to his Alma Mater.
Greta Gail Peart.
A poem we've endeavored to write,
Upon our class to throw some light,
lVe've meant no harm so please don't
Let laughter all your troubles drown.
Now and in days we've left behind,
A better class is hard to find.
Our noted elass president sees all things
But along with it all Frank will have his
Dlackls chemistry knowledge makes good
He answered a question once. 'Member
Helen is always willing to help everyone
That she'll make a success there is cer-
tainly no doubt.
Gene llilers' interests seem to lie
In the sophomore class-we couldn't guess
No nerve to say it, but a lot to say,
XVhen Lowell gets that nerve, he'll talk
till Doom's day.
Phil Decker has plenty of vigor and vim
And of music she is full to the brim.
Norma Bollengier is as jolly as one could
You never hear her complain of the blues.
Tom Dhamers would rather stay home as
And read a good comic 'stead of goin' to
Houeh's get-up-and-go many people de-
At the rate she's going she'll set the world
lid, our football player, needs no intro-
W'here he has fought there lies destruc-
Fleet-footed Louie is always rarin' to go
Be it to a party, a dance, or a show.
That Shirley Fronk says little all through
the day, '
ls certainly no sign she has nothing to say.
Snicker's on the job from New Year's till
Of the heart-smashers' club he's an ar-
VVayne goes calmly about his own work,
l doubt if he knows what to means to
Uppy always back her ideas strong,
Be her answers right or wrong.
And you should see Greta Gail dance,
She'd make a professional if she had a

'Tis there his idea of heaven lies.
Rita, from Hooppole, is quite an addition,
A real young lady with a sweet disposi-
Stan, our football star so brave and so bold
Is a great big lad with a heart of gold.
Public, teachers, school, and friends,
Here it is our poem ends.
If its liked, 'twill give us joy,
VVe want no praise, no, we're not Coy.
But if you've nothing else to fill the time
Then praise the class of '49,
