I. Joe Ray Tolar, will my ability to skip study halls to Jim Stockard, knowing that he will use it to the best of his ability. I, Betty Ann Bowman, will and bequeath by clarinet to John Ra mos in hopes he will learn to play it better than I. And to Molly Esselstyn I will my red hair in order to make hers a little brighter. I, Janette Catherine Ellis, hereby will and bequeath my drum to Kathy in hopes she will learn to roll off better than I did. And I also leave my place among the "Singing Stenographers" to my future pupil in the shorthand class. I, Cyril Kaye McAtee, leave my silent determination to never do anything I don’t want to do to Bob McVickers. And to Dayle Highly I will my short straight hair in hopes he will like it as well as I do. I, Katie Lorene Marlnee, hereby will and bequeath my temper to Betty Jean Marlnee in order to keep it in the family. And to Charlotte L. I leave my ability to drive in hopes she will learn how. I, Harriett Grace Abercrombie, will and bequeath all of my office work to Dorothy W. in hopes she doesn't have as much trouble with the census report as I did.

Signed: Signed : GREEN HORNET SQUIRLEY MAC BIG DICKSenior Class It is now the year of 1960. Echo is quite a booming town, and all the graduates of the class of 1950 are returning for a reunion to recall the days of dear old Echo Hi. As always, we are meeting at the Echo Hotel. It is still owned by the Burnetts. As I am standing at the door greeting all my old classmates I am really in for a surprise. First to arrive is famous Argel Collingsworth, who is now an all star baseball player on the Yankees. He has now been playing as a pitcher for the last six years. In his days. Joe DiMaggio was really a hit, but now everyone is a Collinsworth fan. Next to arrive is Betty Bowman who is now Mrs. George Campbell. As I was talking to her she tells me she and her husband now own five different Safeway stores all located in Eastern Oregon. Betty is having a fine time with the saddle horses and going along on hunting trips with her husband and two fine red headed boys. As I gaze through the door I now see a tall, dark, nice looking fellow enter. Of all people. Lawrence Berry. From what I hear the B.T.C. (Berry Tolar, and Correia Gravel Co.) was really the hit in the 50’s. Lawrence is now a retired gentleman at the age of 27 and still leading a daring life looking for a woman who can live the same speed. The Office Practice Class really did that kid good. We should have followed some of the advice. Nearly all the guests have now arrived and as I mingle with the crowd I meet none other than Jeanette Ellis who is now a speed typist and working as private secretary for the president of the Alfred Cunha Law Firm. She now finds shorthand is a very useful thing to know and doesn’t regret the nights when she stayed home and studied for long hours. I now see a couple whom I could never forget. Dick and Shirley are married and Dick is president of the Cunningham Sheep Co. Dick is very busy with Prophecy the business, besides trying to teach the two boys to play basketball on the side. Shirley I know is having trouble because the boys would rather play ball than play a trumpet. Nevertheless, she still has courage and patience and says she will keep trying. She never would give up. There is a loud crash and bang and as we rush to the door, we see a young man stepping from an old car. Oh yes, Kaye Me-Atee. He is now the owner of a large auto sales company and still driving his old Chev. I guess it’s just for memories. Oh, yes, now we see his wife; as usual she is shaking like a leaf. You know it’s very queer to go by and see all the little football players riding horses and twirling batons at the same time. There are now four little Macs. As I am chatting with all the the kids I now see none other than Grace Abercrombie. How nice she looks. Everyone thought she would be a secretary but here she tells us she now owns her own beauty salon, and has five girls working for her. She is planning on opening a dress shop in Pendleton. Joe Ray Tolar after becoming a millionaire with the B.T.C., is now the owner of four logging mills. Joe Ray always was fond of huge trucks and I hear that is why he went into the logging business. Joe Ray still isn’t married and is leading a fast life. He was very pleased to get the family Studebaker while in dear old Echo Hi. but now he has four cars of his own. Oh. yes, all Studebakers. Last but not least I shall give you a few hints about Katie Marl-nee. She always did like motorcycles and cars and is now a racing champ in both. But she still likes the little Ford for speed. All in all I would say she has led a very dangerous life and is still chatting with the dear old friends. Well, kids we will say so long now and much better luck in the future. We will all remember Echo High and the teachers who had so much patience with us.Junior Class The junior closs of "50" started out Juanita Ayers Kathy Ellis Mary Lou Farrens Jeanne Jordan Charlotte Laughlin Dorothy Wiglesworth Richard Fullerton Ten of these were original members year and Mary Lou Farrens, Kathy Ellis, vith fourteen members.
