Long Principal, High School and Junior High OFFICE PERSONNEL Left to right: Inez Harwood, Virginia Leach at typewriter, Merilyn Van Epps, Joyce Bonebright, Dolores Valentine, Beverly Barkley, Jeannie Smith at telephone, and Joan Riddarsporre. These girls were chosen from the present senior class to assist Mr. Long in his office. They have a schedule of certain periods during the day that they work in the office. For their work in the office, they receive one fourth credit. Some of the things they do are: sell typing pads and shop cards, type and run off the hot lunch menus for this building, answer the telephone, type eligibility lists for athletic events, and make up each day the attendance sheet summary. At the beginning of the fall, the girls helped also with the rental of books to the students. This is the first year that we have used students in the office and it has worked out very nicely. The girls have done their work very conscientiously. I think the people that have called while they were at work in the office have found them to be courteous and helpful. The girls themselves have also received some valuable experience.

Our school has often been complimented by visitors and inspectors on the well kept appearance of our buildings. We have our maintenance force to thank for this. Mr. Harry Olson is the member that has worked for the school the longest, having started in 1927. Besides helping with the buildings, and driving a bus, he has been re- sponsible for the mechanical work on our busses for a number of years. He seems to have that "mechanical touch" that can fix things for us. Mr. Merle Wyland is in his 10th year here and besides helping with the mainten- ance of the high school building has charge of the heating of the high school building. The fact that we get through the school year with the minimum of discomliture speaks well for his work. Merle is always willing to help with the little things we ask and never refuses to look for boxes of things we have tucked away in the stock room. Mr. James has been with the school for about three years as bus driver, custodian and official "locker-up-er" after meetings. He is always pleasant in spite of the fact that we often linger in the halls talking after our meetings. Mr. Onstott has charge of the care of the new building and he certainly takes a lot of pride in making it look nice. You can see his car parked outside the building late almost every evening. Our bus drivers: Irvin Bame, Henry Bonebright, Nathan Metcalf, Rollo Click, Virgil Swaim, William Babcock, John Overholt, George Stack, Thurman James, and Jesse Onstott have done a very good job of transporting our children safely to and from school. It is really a job with the buses so crowded. Mr. Stack and Mr. James also help in carrying our athletic teams to events in the evenings. So, to all the people that make our school a success, we give a big vote of thanks for their splendid co-operation. Y W9 ' Qenior Play SENIORS , HISTORY FIRST GRADE The year was nineteen hundred and forty-one, A. D. It was a very special day for the citizens of Edwardsburg, Michigang as it was enrollment day at Edwardsburg's Consolidated School. We were all standing real close to our mothers as this experience of school was entirely a new one and not exactly to our liking. The class-roll that year was: Marge Gunn, Faye Standiford, Burt Blanchard, Kent Claire, Inez Harwood, Bob Beopple, Jim Griffen, Chuck Fox, Lois Akin, Laverne Ward, Zane Torrence, Louis Huffman, Robert Fisher, Joyce Bonebright, Ronnie Gordon, Dick Shanahan, Virginia Parker, Martha Geiger, Benny Starkweather, Gordon Swinehart, Janet Baily, Mary Johnson, Lois Beckman, Bion Carpenter, Gloria Shetterly, and Barry O'Neil. Everything was pretty much routine this year. We'll never forget the daily occur- rences of Bob Beopple skipping down the hall clutching his rompers for Mary Westfall to "button-up." Our favorite song this year was "I Am A Monkey." If we practiced real hard and sang the song all the way through, we received the honor of standing up in front of the class and singing a solo. Marge had long curls that were very tempting for little boys to pull. More than one of the boys stayed in a week of noons regretting his hasty action. SECOND GRADE Our teacher this year was Hazel Westfall. We lost three classmates and gained Marilyn Van Epps, Donna Leist, John Molnar, Virginia Leach and Bette Davis. Being exceptionally well-behaved children, nothing very serious happened during the year. That is if you don't count the time Dick Shanahan was paddled and the one "small" misunderstanding when Chuck Fox had to stay in for swearing. Our favorite su-bject was arithmetic with "Jo-Jo, the Monkey," a little character that held the balls we had to count. Our favorite sport was "Boy chase Girls." It's very odd how that was to continue to be our favorite sport for ten more years. THIRD GRADE Mary Montgomery, Inez Harwood's aunt, was our teacher this year. Inez per- sisted in calling her 'Aunt Mary," so in order to form a more "homey" atmosphere, we did likewise. However, we were dreadfully misunderstood and along with Inez, we were firmly reproved for our efforts. This year was rather uneventful as we discovered there was more to school than just play. FOURTH GRADE Inez Harwood, in order to break the monotony, told Mrs. Padbury she had gone to Paris. A very convincing yarn that had to be corrected a bit forcibly by Mrs. Harwood. Shirley Sokock was in our class for a while. Jim Hanson, Joe Jones, and Jeanne Fetters entered, but otherwise it was a rather quiet year. FIFTH GRADE This year our teacher was Fleata Cornwall. We lost Virginia Parker and gained Patsy Spenner. This was the year that Virginia Leach received boxes of candy and loads of Valentines from the male section of our class. The top contenders for fair Ginny's attentions were Burt Blanchard, Kent Claire, Jim Hanson and Ronnie Gordon. As for the girls, they were more or less concerned with the gallant Stanley Weiler of the sixth grade. Especially Jeanne Fetters and Donna Leist. We'll never forget the time Jim Hanson stood in front of the room making like an airplane, with wide swooping gestures and a motor sound. He had to do this as punishment as he had been doing it quite cheerfully before then to impress his classmates. Strange how airplanes lost their charms to Jim after that! We were so accustomed to seeing Lois Ann Beckman stand in front of the room with a wad of gum on the end of her nose, that it almost seemed unnatural if she wasn't there. Reading was our most difficult subject this year. and also the most strenuous. .Lois Ann fainted from read- ing too much. Mary Lou was drafted in her place and fainted also. Being a brave man to the end, Burt Blanchard carried on until he felt a trifle "whoozy" and the teacher decided we'd gotten enough out of reading for one day. SIXTH GRADE This year we gained the Morris twins, Joyce Swanson, Joan Kerr, Dick Cates, and Jackie Mitra. We'll always remember the excellent acting of Duane Muff when he used to gaily smile after being thoroughly pounded with a razor strap almost daily. One day we noticed Faye looking rather pale up by the pencil-sharpener. After all, Duane had only sharpened a grasshopper in it before. If anyone ever wanted to find Jim Hanson, all they had to do was to glance up at the front of the room. and locate him perched on Mrs. Van Dusen's cheesebox. SEVENTH GRADE This year, Frank Bickel, Leonard Kmitta, Stanley Weiler, Toby Osler, Richard Mackling, Truman Potts, Ray Langguth, Laverle Hatch, Barbara Sturges, and Ada Hole entered our class. We lost only one of our other classmates, Janet Bailey. We had gained the reputation of the largest class Edwardsburg ever had. We organized the Junior High Youth Council this year and everyone in the high school realized we were there, too. This year, we learned square-dancing in addition to our other studies. EIGHTH GRADE In this grade, we gained Nina Armstrong, Pat Canty, Barbara Long, Brownie Bottom, Chester .Kqmitta and Joan Riddarsporre. We lost Toby Osler and Duane Butrick. This year we were superior over the seventh grade and received the pleasure of initiating them for Youth Council. NINTH GRADE To enter our class this year were: Janice Johnson, Delores Reinoehl, Genevieve Persing, Delores Valentine, Pat Poling, and Colleen Phillips. We lost Joann Kerr, Bill Neff, Joe Jones, and Lois Beckman. The beginning of the year started off rather badly as the boys and girls had different home-rooms. We protested loudly Cas usuall without any success. Our ability in sports began to show this year. We were very proud of Ray Minix, when he got to play on the Varsity team as a reg- ular, much to the upper classmen's envy. Our girl's "Freshman" basketball team won every game they played, while the regular girl's team lost some of their games. Our boys got to go to their first track meet and came back red as beets from the sun, and happy over making a good showing. This year we had a high, school minstrel show, consisting mostly of freshmen. We'll never forget Mary Lou's part: "Stay out of the garden, boys." There were two freshmen cheerleaders this year-Marge Gunn and Virginia Leach. TENTH GRADE This year Lois Beckman returned and we lost Joyce Swanson and Stanley Weiler. VVe began pairing off in twos this year. There was Marge and Jim, Ada and Wayne, Frank and Nina, and Mary and Ray. Most of these couples are still together. We'll always remember the "line-up" of the couples at noons and between classes. The football team was rapidly depending on the sophomores. Our first "I-Iayride' was after a victorious football game, with Frank Bickel as the hero. This is the year that our class was best united. We had a lot of good times and consider it our best year in High School. ELEVENTI-I GRADE The ones to enter this year were Chuck Reinks, Beverly Barkley, and Ed Daniels. We lost Pat Canty and Pat Poling. This was our first year to have a Romeo in our class, being no other than Ed Daniels. It was both amusing, and very, very inter- esting. We gave our Junior Play "Cheaper by the Dozen." We had a double cast of characters and poor Miss Yeager felt as though she had a double head when it was all over. A few of the Senior girls and Miss Yeager went to Constantine- to see their play, which was the same as ours, and decided ours was the best. Aside from Miss Yeager forgetting to bring along any money the trip was more or less un- eventful. The Saturday night, cast had a party at Ada's house. Between listening to "The Three Bells' and playing dirty hearts and eating with our guest of honor . . . Lindy Howe, we had a very nice time. This was a year of different opinions and ideas. Although it was rather a high-tension year, we all had a goodi time and learned a lot. We won the King-and-Queen contest with Wayne Barr and Nina Armstrong. We gave a Prom for the Seniors at the Four-Lakes Country Club. Re- member the dark porch? Oh, wasn't that you? Ohhhh, dear! TWELFTII GRADE Our class enrollment at the beginning of this year was forty-eight but we lost Mary Hiatt, who brightened many a dull classroom and now have our present forty- seven. Ours is the largest graduating class in the history of Edwardsburg. Going completely against "Tradition" we wanted green gowns for graduation. However, we were unable to get them so settled for blue: We did get green on our announce- ments though. Contrary to what happened in the past, we won the King and Queen contest again with Tony Kujawski and Genevieve Persing. Our drive was assisted by one wrecked car and a minor scrap drive, much to the Sophomores and Fresh- men's dislike. Thank you, Juniors for your help! Our Senior Play this year was "Beyond Reason." We'll never forget the try-outs, the surprises, and play practice, will we Mrs. Andrews? We have done more work this year than ever before and once again had unity in our class. We wonder what the under-classmen will do when we are out of Mr. Lewis' assembly. You'll have to take the blame yourselves next year boys. We are looking forward eagerly to graduation, our Senior Prom, and our Senior trip to New York City. CLASS WILL We, the class of '53, being of outstanding intelligence, brilliant mind, and ex- ceptional ability, do hereby lovingly bequeath to the faculty and subordinate masses, our most treasured possessions. .

We also will to you, the Juniors, hoping they will be as efficient an Annual staff as we've been. Isn't that right, Miss Yeager?

CSignedl Wee R. Leaving fSignedJ Wee R. Glad CLASS PROPHECY It is January 20, 1972. The group gathered in the home of Mrs. Jeanne Smith represents the small number of graduates of the class of '53 who still reside at the "Burg", and who 'are not part of the huge crowd gathered at Washington for the in- auguration of President-elect Kent E. Claire and Vice President-elect Clyde R. Minix. The group includes other than Jeanne, the former Gloria Shetterly, Joan Riddar- sporre, Dolores Valentine, and various little representatives of their happy homes. Others are Truman Potts, Dick Shanahan, Tony Kujawski, Lyle Pontius, Ray Lang- guth, Russell Garl, Don Jetter and their wives. They have gathered to watch the inauguration of the former members of their class. Jeanne snaps on her CV Ccolorvisionb set and hears the deep resonant voice of announcer Charles Fox who is to cover the inauguration. They settle back in their chairs as Chuck begins: This is Charles Fox bringing you a report of the inauguration of President- elect Kent E. Claire and Vice President-elect Clyde R. Minix. First however, I shall give a brief resume of the election last November. The President-elect had little difficulty winning the election. it was smooth sailing most of the way. For a short while the Democratic candidate, Robert Boepple, seemed to be quite a serious threat, but that old phrase, "It's time for a change", failed t.o'work in his case. If the Democrats are to win the next election, Ada Hole, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and wife of Admiral Wayne Barr, will have to coin a new slo- gan. The one used in this past election had already been worn out by another party years before. Due to the brilliant administration of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower and capable Republican followers, the former Senator Claire was converted from a tried-and-true Democrat to a Grand-Old Republican. The same may be said for the Vice President-elect. Now to continue with news of the inauguration. After breakfast at the classy new restaurant "The Buffet" owned by Patsy Spenner and Faye Standiford, Claire and Minix will begin their trek to the Capitol steps to take their oath of office. Because of the experience gained at "The Cupboard", a restaurant at Eidwardsburg, Michigan, their home-town, the girls became fine connoiseurs of food and decided to open the restaurant. It is rumored that the President-elect has already picked a few members of his future cabinet. Although not official, these are a few of the members believed to be chosen: Secretary of State, James G. Hanson, noted for the diplomacy with which he handles problems concerning foreign affairs C?Jg and Ronald Gordon, an old, high school friend, as Secretary of the Treasury, Franklin J. Bickel, President of Colonel Motors, will most likely be Secretary of Defense. However, it is feared lby some that if he accepts the position, he will have to sell the enormous amount of stock he now owns in the company. Admiral Wayne Barr will probably be under-Secretary of the Navy. Burton L. Blanchard will most likely be Postmaster General. Due to ex- perience gained at old E.H.S., Blanchard has proven himself quite capable. Virginia Leach, faithful party worker and Representative from Michigan, is favored to be Treasurer. As a result of the efficient management of the various funds at E.H.S. in former years, there is no doubt in Claire's mind as to her capability. Yvonne Bottom and Barbara Long will probably be Food and Drug Administrators. As a result of a high school course in Home Economics which also involved nutrition, the girls, genuinely encouraged by a cake which turned out better than anyone elses ialthough that's not saying muchl, became deeply interested in the correct and sanitary preparation of food. As we sit here on the rostrum erected on the steps of the Capitol, I am sur- prised to see so many members of the class of '53 among the crowds lining the streets. Lois Akin, Merilyn Van Epps, Gloria and Phyllis Morris, Inez Harwood, Genevieve Persing, Joyce Bonebright and Dolores Reinoehl are but a few. These girls, bored with domesticity, decided to come to Washington and secure office jobs during the election. They wanted a little change of pace. The President-elect and Vice President-elect have arrived at the Capitol and are now on the rostrum preparing to take their oaths. Mrs. Claire and Mrs. Minix are seated close by. Mrs. Minix is the former model, Mary Bigelow. The crowd is now silent as opera star, Janice Johnson, comes to the head of the rostrum to sing the national anthem. Miss Johnson's voice is beautiful. It's a shame, however, that we are unable to see her. She is so small the top of her head is the only thing visible. Strange, how this inauguration reminds us of one in the past. Dean Bidwell, owner of a large hat firm, has made millions from the sale of "Inauguration Day" hats. The President-elect, going completely against tradition, had ordered green Derbies for the occasion. It seems he had been very disappointed be- cause he, along with others, couldn't wear that. particular color at some high school activity his senior year at E.H.S., his Alma Mater. In this way he is getting even. As we glance into the crowd standing below the rostrum, we are amazed at the great number of celebrities, many of them graduates of Edwardsburg High School. I can see from here, Nina Armstrong, popular musical comedy star who will appear at the Inaugural Ball tonight, Chuck Rienks, former football hero, John Molnar, ace movie cameraman: Leonard Kmitta, matinee idol, and Beverly Barkley, wife of Franklin Bickel and popular lady wrestler. "Break their Bones Bev" it seems decided to become a wrestler when after a high school basketball tournament, she emerged the winner of a fight with some poor soul who had the audacity to swing at her. I also see the popular artist, Ri-chard Mackling, who's beautiful painting of President-elect Claire appeared on the cover of America's leading magazine, The Monday Morning Prop. Also an article by the well known columnist, Barbara Stur- ges, appeared in the same magazine. Miss Sturges, encouraged by the 'popularity of a gossip column she wrote in high school days, dedicated her life to printing the latest "dirt" about the politicians. The Chief Justice has just finished administering the oath of office and the orchestra below us breaks into the strains of "Hail to the Chief". The orchestra is conducted by the brilliant young conductor, Chester lAuturol Kmitta. The benedic- tion will now be delivered by the "Five Dollar Dog". Oops, I mean the Reverend James Griffen of the First Presbyterian Church of Edwardsburg. It was a per- sonal request of the President that Reverend Griffen, an old friend, deliver it. The President and Vice President are now preparing to leave for the White House where they will rest until time for the Ball. Incidentally, the Inaugural Ball will be colorvised tonight at 10:00 P. M. Both the "First lady" and Mrs. Minix will be wearing dresses designed by that fashion genius, Margery Gunn, who is wife of James G. Hanson. Mrs. Claire's will be Rem- brandt red taifeta and Mrs. Minix's will be Picasso pink satin. Both are truly masterpieces. This is Charles Fox leaving the air for station CNS-CV which has just brought you a complete coverage of the inauguration of President Kent E. Claire. Tune in tonight at 10:00 P. M. for a complete coverage of the Inaugural Ball. The small group gathered in Jeanne's living room were silent, each deep in his own thoughts. It is safe to say each was probably thinking of the same thing, namely, the fact that so many members of their class of '53 had, in one way or another, been apart of the inauguration of a great President!

For a small school we seem to be fortunate enough to have boys that are good in all types of athletics. Track appeals to certain boys that don't. care for football, baseball, or basketball. A boy that is too light for football, or not. large enough for basket- ball can find a place in track events. Bill Campbell is the coach of the track team and in the several years that we have participated in this sport, we have done very Well.

The regular team will be found in the calendar. Let's support our school baseball team by all coming out to the games. Who knowsAsome future big league stars may come from Edwardsburg. There is probably more of a career in the professional line in baseball than any other sport. Our team is coached byRobert Mette and with the good material coming on we are sure that he will turn out some good teams. We can use a cheering section at baseball games as well as any other sport.

However, we have several juniors and a large group of sophomores that show promise for next year. Due to the hard work and excellent team work of the girls, we were able to win all our games this year. GIRLS' BASKETBALL - NINTH GRADE First row: Norma Bigelow, Judy Kehoe, Gayla Pontius, Joyce Minix, Janet Kinzie, Norma Gauvreau, Jean Robinson. Second row: Doris Standiford, Mary Lou Funk, Nancy Leiser, Sandy Click, Judy Gibbons, Elizabeth Westfall. Although the 9th grade girls don't get to play on the regular team, they were very interested in basketball and almost every Friday night after school they worked very hard practicing. They were very co-operative and will be a big help to the team next year. ACTIVITIES est Ray-Town Hall E 3?

Gordon, D. Klopfenstein, C. Keck, D. Bigelow, K. Clair, Ed Griifen, and D. Duck. We hear that Deloris Reinoehl got a sudden yearning for a truck ride during the 6th period assembly. Faye S., Patsy Spenner and Miss Yeager burn the midnight oil to try to finish the annual. Time: 11:30-Well, there's always another time. When the director of the P.T.A. show came into Mr. Long's room to be introduced, we don't think he knew it, but he had a lot of ink smudges on his face. But wait-on the other hand maybe he was trying to im- press her for a part in the minstrel. SENIOR CLASS MEETING-We really did want green gowns for commencement, Mr. Long. What ungrateful person could have put that tack on a teacher's chair after she had just said that they had been such angels while she was out of the room????? Wheeeeeeee Jackie Krecioch and Ann Padbury won Hrst place in the speech contest at St. Joseph. We also got 2 seconds and 2 thirds. Mr. Mette's so nice.

We have a large group of girls that are interested in library work this year, and are glad that so many of the freshmen and sophomore girls are helping out. Next year we plan to give quite a bit of training to the girls that are working in the library. Some of the senior girls will be greatly missed as they have been working in the library ever since they were freshmen. We have added a number of new fiction books this year and have a good assortment of magazines for the students to' read. The girls have had several parties this year, a wiener roast in the fall at Mrs. McNabb's and several others. We are getting quite a lot of enjoyment out of our secret pals, and find this an opportunity to learn to do thoughtful things for other people. F. H. A.

In October we attended the Michigan State-Penn State football game at East Lansing. We sent delegates to the Regional convention at Kalamazoo. It was decided there to sponsor a war orphan and each chapter in this region donates toward that. At Christmas time we had a gift exchange and went caroling. March 10th and 11th was the state convention at Michigan State College and we sent two delegates. We gave an Easter program for the old people at the County Infirmary this year. GLEE CLUBS QUBD 51153 Mmrse 1'42"3, VSAT!! Music Dirastor DEBATE AND SPEECH Our debate topic for this year was RESOLVED: That the Atlantic Pact Nations should form a Federal Union. This year our debate team consisted of Ada Hole, Beverly Berkley on the Affirmative and Jerry Toth and Bob Bopple on the Negative. We will be very sorry to see Ada, Bev, and Bob graduate this year as that leaves us with only one experienced debater. Jerry Toth is only a sophomore though and has two more years and there are a number of other people interested for next year. Our first debate this year was with Berrien Springs at Edwardsburg. This time we won the affirmative and lost the negative and with our next debate here with Hopkins we were very happy to win both decisions. Next came our debate with Homer, the school that proved out Waterloo last year-well, Waterloo the Second. They really are good debaters though and go into the state finals each year. Our last debate was with Comstock and we won the affirmative here and lost the negative. The total was four and four. Of course we would like to win them all but that is one thing that debating teaches you that the people with the best arguments and constructive points Win. C.Of course we don't always argee with the judges, but then neither do the others when they lose.D We have found that in debate you can't bluff, but you have to have the evidence and the proof for it. The climax of the debating season is the annual Debate Day at Ann Arbor with the championship debates of the A and B divisions. The students that attended this year were Beverly Barkley, Jerry Toth, Sonny Sanders, Jackie Krecioch, Sandy Click, and Ann Padbury accompanied by Miss Yeager. The students enjoyed their tour of the campus and also hearing the state debate championship contests in the afternoon. The day was climaxed by a dinner sponsored by the Detroit Free Press at 6:00. SPEECH ACTIVITIES This year we did quite well in the District Speech Contest at St. Joe High School. Edwardsburg, St. Joe, and Berrien Springs competed in this event. Our contestants were Ada Hole and Beverly Barkley in the dramatic divisiong Jackie Krecioch and Sandra Click in the declamations, and Ann Padbury and Charlene Eggert in the hum- orous division. Ann and Jackie placed first in their divisions and in the dramatic division a second count to break the tie was made with Beverly getting five points against the other girl's six. Our total score was two firsts, two seconds, and two thirds. Sandra Click, Jackie Krecioch, and Rowena Shank entered the state T.B. speech contest and, although they didn't win any place, got a chance to give their speeches over the Benton Harbor Radio Station. Shirley Fetters and Jerry Toth tried the con- test on the United Nations. It involved a lot of study and the test covered three hours. We haven't heard any results yet but Jerry and Shirley undoubtedly are the two best informed people in the community on the United Nations. Our junior and senior girls were glad to help out when the chest X-rays were taken. The girls worked in shifts giving the announcements over the loudspeaker in the town hall and operating the record player. About 15 girls participated in this. We also enjoyed giving a panel discussion at the November P.T.A. on the current debate topic. The girls also gave their T.B. speeches at this meeting.

J im Konrath Sponsor, Miss Yeager ACTIVITIES The juniors have kept quite busy this year and have worked hard to bring their treasury up to pay for the expenses of the Prom and to have a good amount left over to apply on their senior trip. We started out by selling sandwiches at noon twice a week before hot lunch started and then have sold all year at football and basketball games when it was our turn. We had a very successful scrap drive in November and another in April. Several bake sales throughout the year also helped out. As another project, we sold hosiery from the Hi-Stocking Club and under the management of Shirley Fetters were quite successful. It hasn't been all work as we had a party at the school in November and one at Miss Yeager's house in December. Our junior play "If Mother Only Knew" can be classed as both work and play. The juniors all co-operated very well and enjoyed presenting their first play. Of course the highlight of the year was the Junior-Senior Prom at the Elkhart Hotel. It was held in the Athenian room and the music was furnished by Bobby Wear's orchestra of Elkhart. A group of the juniors picked the place out for the prom one night after play practice and were quite thrilled with the ballroom with its long carpeted hall. Of course it looked even better when filled with our guests in their lovely formals escorted by- fcan those be the boys we see at school every day?l SOPHOMORES 5 CLASS ROLL Top to bottom: Andresen, Beckwith, Krecioch, Bigelow, Bonebright, Barker, Eg- gert, Griffen, Hoffman, Kantz, Klopfenstein, Wishart, Pontius, Mains, Mattox, Mortimer, Morse, Wolfe, Lunsford, Overmyer, Padbury, Proctor, Runkle, Sanders, Sharp, Shoe- maker, Toth Worrell, Windbigler, Stover.
