Text from Pages 1 - 44 of the 1958 volume:
Long before we seniors started to school, a man closely ident
ified with our school system, was hired as our school custodian H
is Howard Kramer, affectionately known as Joyn
For the past sixteen years he has kept our school spotlessly
clean, and the luster of his highly polished floors reflect the twinkle
in his eyes, the kindness in his heart, hls wit, his pleasant person
ality, and above all, his willingness to serve
Mr Kramer is one of the most Llportant people on the school'
staff, and certainly one of the busiest yet he is never too busy to
stop and lend a helping hand whenever ft is needed, whether it be fix
ing a locker door, or helping a little tot remove stubborn galoshes
To think of our school without the presence of Mr. Kramer would
be like thinking of it without school desks and other fixtures. So it
ls with deep pride and appreciation for all of hiswkindnesses, his
sincerity of purpose, and his faithfulness in the execution of his
numerous duties, that we, the SENIORS OF '58, dedicate to him this
yearbook of E.H.S. Memories

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
Last night I dreamed that
and I was making a trip to see
then I had to travel quite far
I dreamed that I began ny
it was 1983, twenty five years from now,
all of my classmates of 1955 Some of
to see, and others were just a short
trip right here in Edgewood First I
went to see Wayne Thurn, then ouis Rowell Wayne and his wife, the
former Annadell Nanke, lived on a farm northeast of Edgewood Annadell
told me that since they had so many little Thurns, they had to trade
their Ford sedan for a Ford tation wagon When I came to Louis
Rowell's farn, I was very surprised All there was on the farm was a
shack for a house, a broken down barn, and a 'MB Ford Louis explained
to ne that he had fallen into poverty, when he started a reducing plan
that added pounds instead of tak' v a
My next stop was at Greeley where Charles Col Ins was runnlng a
brewery After he discovered he couldn't hide all he wanted to make
on a still at home, he decided to do it legally and in the open
Charles was slowly becoming rich by selling to all his friends
At Guttenburg I found Vayla Kramer, the girl who was once going
steady with two bovs at the same time, searching the beaches for a
man in a sleeping bag whom she stumbled over one night
As I was traveling through Thorp on my way to Manchester, I found
a small circus that featured Regina Vaske as its leading lady She
was the fat lady Regina told me that while she was younger she had
taken so many pills that she now weighed S80 pounds
When I arrived in Manchester I founa that Joan Elliot, now Mrs
Gary Hartbeck, lived in a brand new house Joan explained that she
always did like Gary, so after Ronnie left for the service, she and
Gary started r1d1ng to work at Manchester together After about a
year of riding together they decided it would be cheaper to get married
and build a new hore in Manchester
St Luke's at Cedar Rapids was my next stop Verona Sherman was
still employed by this hospital It seems she had been successful as
a nurse, but not successful at landing Charles Collins, so she settled
for an intern of similar qualities
Now I dreamed that I had to leave the state of Iowa and go to
Missouri to see Robert Everett sing on Ozark Jubilee Bob had a long
string of girl admirers, but he brushed them aside and said, I still
plan on marrying Evelyn Elledge, when I get Elvis's top rank N
My destinations were getting farther apart now and I had to travel
by train to Chicago where Pat and Howard Hansel were running a dancing
school Pat and Howard agreed that they had been considering it ever
since the Jr Sr Banquet when Howard proved to be such a good dancer
From Chicago I went to New York to s Rob t M
ca led umalk all the Time He holds a tglkjngegecog egnoghfsprogram
program which no one has broken for three years when I talked to Bob,
he said I proably wouldn't get to see Robert Timmerman because he goes
from town to town selling medecine to make you grow tall Bob Maier
said that the last tine he had seen Bob Timmernan he was six and one
half feet tall
Bob also told me I wouldn't get to see Nancy Lewis either Nancy
was traveling with the Harlem Globetrotters and was fast becoming one
of their star players
I dreaned that by airplane I went to Germany to see Mardell Greve
and to get some of the sleeves out of vests that she was giving away
free. Mardell decided the United States was no olace for her after she
and Larrv broke up so she went to Germany to live with ner slster.
James Cole tried out for major league baseball but didn't make it.
He then 1oined a girls' softball team that toured Russia. While on thi
trip, he became so involved in Communism that he took out naturalization
papers. So my next journey was to the Kremlin to see Jim in his new
he Marines had sent Ronald Fousek to the Hawiian Islands, so
that was my next stop. Upon my arrival I found that Ronnie had
become infatuated with a cute, little Hawiian girl who was now his
wife. She and Ronnie were now making grass skirts to send to the
a .nr the way.

In California I killed two birds with one stone. Harold Tegeler
was serving out a sentence in prison for making question marks out of
fly specks on the State Capital Building wall when he served as an
usher at the Jackson Day Dinner. As I talked with Harold, Vera Romig
From California I went to Mexico to see Vine nt Fangman in one of
his famous bullfights when I asked Vince how he liked it in Mexico
he said, nFine, especially the girls
Marlene! Marlene! Someone was calling! Nas it one of the other
old maids that lived in this home for forgotten treasures where I
was stav ng after Jon gave me the bum's rush? Or was it nv old
Tabby cat mewing that sounded like Marlene, Marlene ?
opened my eyes Mother stood in the doorway She said, Marlene,
get up! You have so much to do today and class night is this evening
I crawled out of bed slowly and as I reflected uoon this dream I
was so very thankful Mother hadn't interrupted my dream before I
learned the outcome of everyone in class, for, being an old maid, m
curiosity would surely have killed me had I not learned the outcome
1 I asked her whv she was there and she said Harold is mv
Love and I've been taking in washings these twenty five years to
money to buy hardware to smuggle in to him so he can break out of
all ry old classmates
