rien, State of Michigan, United States of America,

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

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
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
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
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.

to jim Culverhouse in the hope that jim will be saved
from any more embarrassing moments on the basket-
Sue and Jerry Light leave their knack for getting
along to Margaret and Gwen Rahn.
