19 6 Clam Wi!! we, the Class of 1956 of Benton Harbor High School in the city of Benton Harbor, County of Ber- rien, State of Michigan, United States of America, Western Hemisphere, being of sound mind and body at this writing, and realizing that our days at Benton Harbor High are rapidly coming to an end, do hereby make, publish, and declare this last will and testa- ment, hereby revoking all former wills and testaments made by us in the past: To Benton Harbor High School, we leave and bequeath our greatest gratitude, with best wishes that this great institution of learning continue its glorious work. To our principal, Mr. Semler, and the learned faculty, we leave our most sincere appreciation and thanks for their efforts, and wish to assure them that these efforts were not in vain. To the student body, as a whole, we leave our many athletic accomplishments, our beautiful singing voices, and our incomparable academic record. Being a perfect class in all respects, we wish to remind the Juniors that it will be impossible to duplicate our feats, but we hope that when they become seniors they will not be discouraged. We advise them to always strive for perfection, a goal which we proved can be reached. For Mr. Hynd, our worthy class advisor, we could not find anything valuable enough to repay his patience and kindness, so we leave him a hearty "Thank you." To the underclassmen is left the new addition in which they may pursue higher grades and more basket- ball records. They are also left the unenviable task of converting the aroma of the old gym into an atmosphere more suitable for a cafeteria. Unto our heirs, the mighty seniors, we relinquish the numerous positions of authority held by our successful class and it is our wish that they may work, prosper, and perspire as we did. The senior members of the football team leave their ability to run, pass, kick, and block to next year's players and wish them and their new coach the best of luck. To the class of 1957, the senior boys leave their pegged pants, pink shirts, and "Mr. B" collars, as they are all going "Ivy League." The senior girls reluctantly leave Mr. Rock to the Juniors with a plea to "take good care of him." To Miss Meyn and the dramatic talent of 1957 we will the school auditorium which has earned its niche in the theater world as the site of the hilarious "Time Out for Ginger," our famous senior play. Our sense of humor and priceless collection of jokes, we will to Benton Harbor High School's num- ber one comedian and guidance director, Randall Perry. The senior band members leave Mr. Kuschel with fond memories of their musical ability, flawless marching, and neat appearance in their new uniforms. The following personal wills are also to be made at this time: Sandra Cayo wills her talent on the football field to Don Marler. Pat Petruschke leaves her ability to play the flute to jim Hawkins. To the new cafeteria, jim Reynolds wills a one- year supply of toothpicks. Ron Treichel leaves his knack for accumulating traflic tickets to Tom Garland. His cheerleading ability, john Null wills to Bar- bara Ginter, Karen Gobiel, and Virginia Froehlich. Ruth Ann Chambers forces her quiet, shy ways on Mary Morgan. To Chester Walker goes Jerry Bellenger's book on "How to Grow Tall." jerry Kirshenbaum and Elden Butzbaugh donate their noses to the drama department which is sorely in need of new curtains for the stage. Bob Finch leaves a pair of bright red suspenders to jim Culverhouse in the hope that jim will be saved from any more embarrassing moments on the basket- ball court. Sue and Jerry Light leave their knack for getting along to Margaret and Gwen Rahn. Leroy Goff leaves his unquenchable thirst for knowledge to Jerry Barchett. John Bridgham leaves to save his father's face. We, the Class of 1956, do hereby set our seal on this, the sixth day of june in the year of nineteen hundred and fifty-six.

I :s' s 'n: 50. l--Z1-'P X "n..l',: W STN l x N Class Prophecy: Efhr mu lgetllahinm VOL. 1 NO. 1 JUNE 8, 1976 PAGE I SEEK TWU MEN IN CIJNNECTIUN WITH PRETZEL EXPLOSION Sax Announces Desire for John King and Presidential Nomination Kermit Sliter sought WASHINGTON, june 7 - CAPJ - Michigan's senior senator, Larry Sax, informed reporters today that he will definitely be a candidate for the Prohi- bitionist presidential nomination when that party holds its convention later this month in Willow Creek, Arkansas. Sax has outlined a four-point platform which he plans to use as campaign am- munition: C11 To eliminate all taxes, C21 To build a linking bridge from Hawaii to the United States: CBJ 'Ib ban all text books in the nation's high schools, and C41 'Ib relieve traflic congestion by re- moving all police cars from public highways. Sax's campaign manager, Miss Sandra King, claims that "Larry will win the November election easily, and will bring a glorious end to the corrupt administra- tion of President Bob Blackburn." Sax, whose vice-presidential running mate will probably by Arthur fBuddyJ Alberts, also stated that his campaign slogan will be "Make Merry with Larry." Mayor Delivers a "Knock-Out" Address A distressing incident occurred at the Chamber of Commerce banquet last night. The toastmaster called upon Robert Westin, the mayor of St. joseph, to de- liver an impromptu speech. Westin re- sponded, but after four hours, Bill Dal- ziel, prominent Benton Harbor industrial- ist, suddenly arose and began beating Westin on the head with a ping-pong paddle. This assault inflicted many bruises on Westin's bald head, and Dr. Bruce Conybeare pronounced Westin's condition this moming as "fair." "I couldn't stand it any longerj' was the only explanation Dalziel would make from jail today. PROMINENT BUSINESSMEN PERISH IN DESERT CAIRO EGYPT, june 7-CAPJ-Amen ica's foremost correspondent to the Sa- hara Desert, Beverly Pape, reported to- day that two prominent businessmen have perished while on an excursion in this desolate land. The two, jerry Ragen and Jim Ham- mond, are reported to have drowned in a mirage while on the last leg of their ambitious journey to install a coca-cola machine in the middle of the Sahara Desert. LOCAL MAN SEEKS EMPLOYMENT Doyle Lancaster, who until recently was employed to bathe the gold fish at the new Benton Harbor Civic Aquarium, has resigned his position as it was too strenuous. He is now looking for a job which is pleasant, congenial, and not so hard. Two Local Men Make Hot News in Alaska A telegram was received yesterday by Bill Molter, stating that two former Ben- ton Harborites, Gary Lewis and Leroy Hickmott have successfully struck coal in the Klondike region of Alaska. Originally planning to prospect for gold, Lewis and Hickmott stated in the telegram, "We are a bit cool, but the coal will keep us warm!" john King and Kermit Sliter are being sought by local and state authorities in connection with last week's explosion at the Twin City Pretzel Company. Damages to the company's main building were estimated at SB300,000 by Fire Marshal Carl Brown. King and Sliter were first suspected of having a hand in the explosion when the two fled when Benton Harbor Police Chief Ron Schroeder began a routine questioning of all employees of the com- pany. The two men had been employed for four years as apprentice pretzel- benders, and in two years they would have become eligible for advancement to the coveted position of chief-pretzel- benders. The firm's president, Terry Weiss, told reporters yesterday, "King and Sliter have been dissatisfied with their jobs for some- time. They have constantly complained that our pretzels are too salty, and have rebelled by bending them square instead of round." Police strongly suspect sabotage as a copy of Dr. Frank Zindler's book, How to Construct a Hydrogen Bomb, was found in King's workbench. Woman Cited for Work with Blind LOS ANGELES, June 7-fAPJ-Carol Faber has been cited by several Califor- nia newspapers for meritorious service in aiding the blind. Carol has served for seven years as America's leading trainer of seeing-eye dogs. About her occupation, Carol com- mented, "I have always felt sorry for people who can't see too well, and I really enjoy helping them." Sixty-three
