The seniors started in Mgh school by way of c ulnr tradition, in-
itiation, in the fall of 19 7
Starting out the year with twenty-four nenbers, they -"anared tc ach-
ieve nuite a number of activities, among them being, the play,"Aunt Cath-
ie» s Cat.” They selected William Weathersroon, president; Hazel Pruitts,
secretary-treasurer; J. D. Carlson, serjeant-at-arms; and Mr. perrruson as
class advisor to lead their class this year.
The sonhomore venr started with the all important event of initiat-
ion for the new frosh. Initiation was held in the library with a party,
honoring the frosh, after initiation. The class enjoyed such things as,
parties, dances, and many picnics. Officers for the sonhomore cl-ss were
as follows: Caryl Hug, president; David Townsend, vice-president; Pc ri -
cia Buschke, secretary; Clinton Dalgliesh, treasurer; and advisor, Mr.
During the year of 1948 the class presented a comedy play entitled,
”The Inner V illy.”
The year of 49-50 was a bi year for the class not only in work but
also in the many pleasures and enjoyments that come from the junior year.
The junior class of 50 started the year with Y illiam ’'eathers oon ns
president: David Townsend as vice-president; Kathleen Culver ns secretary
and Caryl Hu as treasurer. Mr. Peeters was class advisor.
The juniors were very busy se!ling nop and candy at all home caries.
The proceeds from thin and the play, "Listen to Leon,” a comedy, added
much to the class funds.
In May the luniors honored the seniors with the annual Prom and Ban-
nuet. The" Prom theme, "Spring,” ws very brilliantly portrayed in green
and blue with red and yellow flowers.
The seniors of 51 v ho have completed their twelve years of education
in the Elrin public schools -re Merrill Perry, Alroy Rasmussen, William
Weatherspoon, Caryl Hug, °nd David Townsend.
The senior year is, of course, the greatest year in the life of any
hirh school stu’ent.
Tlie seniors started this year with eleven members but were glad to
have two new members join during the first week of school raisin the en-
rollment of the class to thirteen.
The class chose as officers o4' the final year, Clinton Dalgliesh ,
president; Merrill Perry, vice-president; Caryl Hug, secretary; Kathy
Culver, treasurer; Mr . Lorraine McCoy was advisor.
During this last year of high school, the class enjoyed several par-
ties. They also participated in many activities; the girls in ft A A and
other organisations while the boys participated largely in snorts.
The seniors found time to nut on a play, "The Charm Shop," a costume
drama in three acts, '"hey also attended the Alumni Banquet and Dance, the
Annual Prom and Bannuet, and a very interesting and exciting sneak.

Willene Weather spoon, and we fin'd in her the sane traits as her parents,
Kathy (Culver) Weatherspoon, and V illiam Weatherspoon as when they took
social economics in 1951.
It so happens that Willene v s assigned a report on Patous people of
With a small amount of inherited intelligence she headed toward the
library and Who1 s " ho.
As she thumbed through the "C's”, the first name tht caught her eye
was Patricia (Buschke) Culver. This was her aunt Patricia. She is famous
for her inter-nlanotory exploration she had made on an all out search for
the nan she intended to marry. This trip took her as far as Mars, but
finding nothing of interest there, decided to come back to earth and is
now hapoily married to the red-headed Culver she v as so fond of in 51.
She now lives the life of Reily with her six kids.
Looking on through the ”D s”, Willene finds Clinton Dalgliesh, great
writer and producer of the modem period n American Literature and ormer
of two reat studios n the he°rt of New York. His first rreat show on
the screen was his ”Dance of the Ripples”, st rinr Alroy Rasmussen and

Dud Lockett, a distinguished political leader in Russia. He was the
first political leader in this country to elevate the wo nan shortage, an
awful thing for Dud, and to denote all his communistic principals of col-
lective sharing. His philosophy is "If you have a wife, I have a wife.”
Willene has heard her father speak of Don Ruttan and wonderinr if he
was given credit for his miraculous invention to take the Place of the

Willene copied her notes and closed the book.
That night when she arrived home, Willene found that her parents
had com any; ' Mrs. Bud Wyler, the former Hae.el Pruitts. It seems that
she and her wealthy husband were tak n' a vacation and v eve on their way
around the world. Mrs. Wyler had been a model for several years in New
York and had married the president of the company.Mrs. Wyler told of meet"nr several of their old classmates. Ono of
them, Miss Caryl Hug, a successful business woman. She 5s manarer of a

Nadine (Larson) Hotchel is Miss Hug's favorite des' ner. She studied
for two years and is now sought by many largo firms.
Mrs. ’Vylcr also told that she had been to Carnegie Mall to Merrill
Perry s debut as a concert oianist.
Tt seems that in soite of his objections against music, after aradu-
ation he studied intensely and is now ''amous for his skill.
Willene was very interested in this news because there were all ra-
untes of 1951. TTpon looking thro gh her notes she found that she had in-
formation cn the entire graduating class of EHS in the year of f51.
Mr. Lee was orite nleased with Willene s renort because it brought
