This is thetwenty-sixth edition, and we are striving towards the UECHO'sH Golden anniversary. This year because of high prices our small senior class has decided to put out a cheaper annual. After much debate we thought that a mimeo- graphed yearbook would be more appropriate. We are going to publish our own book in this manner: The articles are gathered, corrected, and typed. They are then put on a dummy sheet and typed on a stencil by the typist. Then the pages are run through the mimeograph. Although the engraved annual is nicer, please bear in mind that this book will cost about one-third as much as an engraved one. We shall still try to put into this 1951 UECHOU all of the precious memories we hold of ECHS and pictures of all our friends so dear to us. 1-7 -V V I 'il Q SC H O Q L Cf? A R D We of the Echo staff wish to express our sincere appre- ciation to our board. This community-minded groupcf men has fully met their responsibilities and solved many problems. We wish to thank the Board for a good building, a beautiful lawn, and modern equipment. The Board has supervised our plant in such a manner that our community, faculty, and school feel very proud of it. These men of the Board should be appreciated by all for their wise guidance. Mr. DUrWO0d Lanterman is the only original member of this group. Mr. Albert Awe was appointed to the board when Mr. C. Kershner moved out of the school district. In the spring the school patrons gave Mr. Awe a vote of confidence by electing him to his temporarily appointed position. Mr. Maurice Dee has served on the board for several years. Mr. John Dansher, who is now president of the school board is the son of Mr. Michael Danaher, who was one of the original board members. Mr. Danaher is ever planning for the future welfare of the school, and should be congratulated on his fine work. Mr. Stephen Walsh, the fifth member, came into office at the death of Mr. Clarence Van Meter. Mr. Walsh has been faith- fully serving the com unity on the board for the last six years. These men have all been very civic minded and have served their community in many ways. Top picture, left to right: Mr. Maurice Dee, Mr. Stephen Walsh, Mr. John Danaher, Mr. Durwood Lanterman, and Mr. Albert Awe. The lower picture is of our ever faithful janitor, Mr. Charles Smith. Mr. Smith replaced Mark Hunter when the latter was called back into service. Mr. Smith has kept the lawn mowed, the building clean, and has done any other job asked of him. We wish to express our appreciation to Smith for his care of the building, grounds,znd his splend cooperation when the stage needed to be set, chairs moved, and the doing of the other thankless jobs that arose.

The much looked-forward-to event was initiation, which came and passed without mishaps. Clarence Davis was chosen as president, Vernon Plummer as vine-president and James Dennison as secretary-treasurer. The WFreshiesW had usual booths at Homecoming consisting of fish pond and pop corn concessions. . In the fall of l9h8 twenty-one sophomores returned to school. James Ward was elected president,while Vernelle Dennison was chosen vice-president, and Dolores Hinds was named secretary-treasurer. At Homecomingall of the students were busy with shooting gallery booths and selling chances on a basket of groceries. The NClass of '5lH closed their second year with a trip to St. Louis. Miss M. Neill, the sophomore class sponsor, was in charge of the trip. As upperclassmen 19 young people claimed the title of juniors. Larry Wilham was elected president to guide them through a big year. Dolores Hinds became vice-president, and Walter James Hickey, secretary-treasurer. The sale of stationery and Christmas cards swelled the class fund. WGlory to Gold n was their first big venture into the field of dramatics. This production netted a profit ofSW3 to help in the biggest event of the year, the Junior-Senior Prom. The UClass of '5lN as juniors were saddened by thecbath of one of its members, John, WJackU, Pickett, who died from tetanus, November 9, 19h9, just before the junior play wasto be given. The class,as did the school, missed Jackfs ready wit, his fun and laughter. . Two of the class were transferred to Athens, and UJimU Dennison went to the Navy. The "Class of '5l" in September 1950, was down to 13. The seniors voted for class officers. Vernelle Dennison became president,UJiggsHDavis, vice-presi- dent, and Walter Hickey returned to the office of secretary- treasurer. The seniors initiated the freshies without any bad results. The class put on the play, NAntics of Andrewu, a three act comedy to help with the expense of the annual. The juniors held a banquet in honor ofthe seniors, May 5, at the Leland Hotel. The graduation was held May 31. Thirteen seniors bade a fond farewell to good oldl HB.

Then, I happened to remember about my good friend, Dr. Wonmug, the man who time- machined Alley Oop into the present. I went out to Nevada to see if he could time-machine me ahead a few years. He told me that he thought he could. He sent Alley Oop with me. We dressed in the fanciest clothes of l95l.'- We were time-machined ahead to the year 1965, and our clothes were nothing fancy at all. The people were prospering well and our clothes were out of style compared to the Ulynolyten disposal-type fabric clothes people were wearing then. When they got dirty they were thrown away and new ones purchased very'cheaply. Let me tell you what the people in the class of 1951 were doing. Pete Boyer: The president and founder of the Boyer Swine Association and after several years of cross-breeding had come up with an almost perfect swine called the Buroc. UJiggsU Davis: Owner of uo,ooo acres of land in and around Elkhart. He has made a cool 5 million an is now turning over all profit to charity. Vernelle Dennison: Establisher of one of the newest and most profitable ideas in recent years. He has set up a chain system of barber shops throughout the United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. Bill Dennison: The owner of the Ruby Horseshoe, the biggest and best night club in the world. Also the owner of the Dreanon, the most beautiful ball room. Carl Ebbersten: Taking life easy on a large farm near Cornland. Also owning several thousand acres he does not farm. Georgeann Gieseke: Owner of the best-equipped and largest beauty parlor in the United States. Permanente are turned out in mass production. Georgeann has also made a new home permanent kit called UGoneH. Harriett Hall: After much success in the music world is celebrating the longest run in Broadway history of the stage show, HSome Unenchanted Morningn, which is a howling success. Walter James Hickey: After a short time of truck driving and wise use of his money, is now owner and manager or the P.O.E., Pacific Overmountain Express truck line, the biggest and best in the nation. Dolores Hinds: After studying nursing for some time has become the leader of all registered nurses throughout the U. S. and is a very important figure. Vernon Plummer: never knew. Through now running on atomic Margaret Sanders: much of her nursing now in charge of the children. ' Has found out things Albert Einstein Vernon's knowledge many factories are energy. An industrious person that has given career to crippled children. She is world's largest hospital for crippled Larry Wilham: After a fabulous career in race driving has retired winning more championships than anyone. Larry at the time was president of the Indianapolis Speedway. Some of these fortunes may be far fetched, but I really do have great hopes for this grand group of classmates. I hope to be a prosperous oilman or businessman of some sort. The class of 1951 will be prosperous, successful and happy as they take over their positions in the world.

David Dains dropped out, but Barry Nordyke moved in from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to keep the number of class members at an even sixteen. A three-act play, HPlease, M Nervesu, was presented by the class and,before rehearsals were over, Mr. Grohovsky was saying, UPlease, my nerveslu The class made a profit of 377.75 on the performance. After the play, the class and Mr. Grohovsky, Miss Giger, Miss Self, and Miss Neill enjoyed a party given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Steve Walsh. The class had fun again at a party given for Bernardine and Bernard Bertsche on their sixteenth birthday, October h. This party was at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Bertsche. The juniors sponsored a booth and check room at UHome- comingu, and sold Christmas cards and stationery to add to their collection of money. Jean Davis was chosen to repre- sent the class as their queen at UHomecoming.H At Christmas the juniors gave a party in the study hall for students and faculty. The study hall was decorated and a lighted Christmas tree was placed in front. Entertainment was provided by the uSalliesH, a swing band made up of the junior girls. Gifts and cards were ex- changed and refreshments of home-made candy and cookies, and cokes were served. f After much debating,the class decided to use part of the funds they had made to honor the seniors with a banquet. Each junior, senior, and faculty member was allowed to in- vite a guest to this main event of the school year. The banquet was held at the Hotel Leland in Springfield on the fifth of May.

One member of our channel, Marshall Dennison, moved at the beginning of the years' program to leave us with fif- teen actors. The girls took charge of the program with Julia Plummer as president, Jeannette Buttell, vice-president, and Dolores Parks, secretary-treasurer. In order to raise money for their annual trip to St. Louis, the channel sponsored a scrap paper and iron drive which profited them 335.62. , At Homecoming, Channel Two was responsible for the shooting gallery and Coco-Cola booths. They also sold pen- cils with a chance on a basket of groceries. From this they gained 3h2.92. From the girls in their class, the channel chose Julia Plummer as their candidate for Homecoming Queen. The profit from this was 38.39. The other three channels and Senders CFacultyl were en- tertained at a costume Hallowe'en party given by Channel Two on October 27.

However, Clarence Ritchhart of Pleasant Plains enrolled in school in the latter part of March, in- creasing the total number of boys to five. Frances Payne, a classmate, left school the second semester and entered Mt. Pulaski high school, In September the class had a closed hayrack ride, end- ing in a weiner roast at Fred Johnsonfs. 4 The freshmen took chargeA6f.the'fish pond and sold pop- corn at Homecoming. The officersvwere Sandra Smith, president, Donnie Hinds, vice-president, Ann Smith,secretary and Doris Awe,treasurer. The freshmen had heard many tales of the agony of form- er initiation days and were looking forward with dread to their reception into the ECHS tribe. When they received their instructions, they were to dress as Indians. The girls were to wear bright-colored blouses and long bright skirts. The girls also had to tan their faces and braid their hair, and wear headdresses. Some of the boyshad tomahawks and the others had bows and arrows. The freshmen attended the initiation party that evening given by the seniors for them, They all enjoyed it very much, Because the freshmenyianned their school party too late in the season, they decided to entertain the eighth graders on visitation day at the high school, The date was set for April twenty-seventh, The freshmen took the eighth graders to their classes, and had a noon recreation program planned for them that included both games and refreshments.

BASKETBALL The HRedbirdsH finished their '50-'51 season with a 15 won, ll lost record. The team was made up of l5 boys, which meant that everyone had to work hard all the time. The loss of the graduates from last year's squad was great, so many people didn't expect much from this small team, but Coach Cain gave the boys some added pepper and drive which helped them to win the Logan County tournament and second place in the Logan-Dewitt conference. It won't be forgotten how the Redbirds came from behind and scored 9 points inabout a min- ute to win the semi-final game from Hartsburg-Emden, then came from behind again in the finals to beat New Holland. In the Williamsville Invitational Tourney the team was beaten in the semi-finals, by Mt. Pulaski, who went on to win the tourney, and thenvas beaten by Riverton in the third place game. In the District tourney at Armington, the Redbirds met their old foe, Hartsburg-Emden, again. The HStagsH won this game, and went on to win the district meet. This was the last game of l95O-51 season for ECHS.

Z Q BASEBALL The fall baseball team was one with little experience. The pitching staff cf last spring's team was hit hard by graduation. Three boys were lost from this position. New pitchers were developed which meant that new players had to fill many of the other positions. Thescores are as follows: A wg THEY THEY 7 Middletown 6 15 Atlanta 1 7 Hartsburg-Emden 3 O New Holland 5 15 Beason 15 2 Mt. Pulaski 3 The spring baseball team was very small. Only 12 men reported. Again, regular positions had to be filled. Three changes around the infield were filled from the fall team. The addition of Barry Nordyke toihe mound staff helped .con- siderably.

The Echo, we knew, would in- volve considerable expense, So, from our freshman year on we worked to save money for the yearbook. However,our class dropped so much in enrollment that we couldnit even scrape up enough for an engraved yearbook, yet we did not want to drop the publication of an annual. We hope that you will find this book over which we have labored long hours, sat- isfactory. This year the seniors have sold popcorn, candy, Coca- cola, and greeting cards. we have sold things at every pos- sible opportunity. What we charge for an annual,even though it is a cheaper book, still represents about one eighth of the total cost of the production. 'Wesell advertising space, which appears in the back of the book, but that pays just for the picture pages. We still have to pay for covers, binding, stencils, paper, ink, and all camera supplies. If our labor of running off the printed pages was figured into the books, it would been a costly one, indeed. Although the Echo is considered a senior project, the juniors, a sophomore, and a freshman reporter helped with the publication. So, we, the seniors, wish to take this op- portunity to thank the students, the faculty, the board, the mothers of the seniors, and the community for their help and cooperation that made this 1951 Echo possible, Upper picture.

THE Ecsomt The Eohoette, which is published bi-monthly by the sen- iors is distributed free to students, faculty, school board, and homes of people in Elkhart who haven't any children in high school. The Echoette staff consists of seniors with the except- ion of the two issues published before the senior play. These issues are put out by the juniors who did a very nice job this year. One issue, the Easter edition, was done in color by the juniors. The Echoette is a member of the NSPA and NDPA which are National Organizations. The Echoette is rated high by these groups. The classification has not been received for'this spring as yet, but it is believed to be very good. This year the Echoette has a mailing list of SS, which includes former grads of ECHS, school exchanges, and other people interested in ECHS. These people pay a small sum for their paper which just covers the cost of mailing. Mr. Joseph Grohovskyamd Miss Lucy Giger are sponsors of the Echoette. We, the seniors, wish to thank them at this time for their help and co-operation. The identification of the Echoette picture is left to right: James Ward, Clarence Davis, and Walter James Hickey.

The story had to do with a young boy who had a talent for musical cmnposition, but whose taste ran to waltzes instead of swing. He was derided by all of his friends and family, but he finally wrote a song which was a success.

But soon a big modern hotel opened up, and nowthe only guests are Ralph Wilson, a young doctor who loves Alice, andvho wants to turn the hotel into a rest home with himself the resident physi- cian, Althea Coldwater, an old lady who isn't an old lady at all, but an escaped kidnaper in disguise, Madam X, a fake fortune teller who cannot get a license to operate in town so sells everybody Umagic wishing ringsu with hilarious re- sults, and Igor Petroff, a so-called Russian dancer, who isn't a Russian at all, andvhose partner quits him before he can do his act in the local theatre. He, then, has to hire Tildy Mae Jenkins, the rattlebrained chambermaid ashis danc- ing partner. Others living in the hotel are Cinny, Mrs. Higgens' teen age daughter, andthe teen age son, Eddie, both of whom are comic situations in their own Wquaintu way. Ralph, the doctor, has a wealthy, good-looking friend, Jimmie Washburn, who comes to town to consult Ralph upon the advice of his Chicago doctor that he go some place where it is nice and quiet to recuperate from a nervous collapse that he has suffered in an accident. Ralph thinks Jimmie will save the day for Mrs. Higgens by paying a big board bill all summer. He might even put money into the hotel so they can have their rest home. But every time Ralph brings Jimmie to the hotel something exciting is happening which only makes Jimmie's condition worse! Thenin comes Jimmie's sweetheart, Gladys Burr, who is followed by her fire-eating widower fa- ther, eager to kill Jimmie outright because J. M. Burr wants his daughter to marry someone else! With all the confusion the play ends in hilarious re- sults for everyone except the characters in the cast whose nerves are all practically shattered. The juniors old tick- Ets ag hop and 254. This production netted them a profit of 77.7 . SENICDRT PLAY When the question, HWho wants to be in the senior play?N arose, quite a problem presented itself to Miss Giger. Everyone in the senior class wanted to be in this annual affair. That meant that a play for nine boys and four girls would have to be found--a very difficult task indeed! After considerable scanning through play books, a farce, UThe Antics of Andrew,U was selected. This play had nine boys and five girls which meant that one girl would have to be selected from the underclassmen. Because there were but four senior girls, Dolores Parks, a sophomore, was chosen to play the other girl's part. The cast was as follows: Petunia....................... . Andrew Browne................ Jacques........ Willie Waldo .... Althea Thorne... Julia Boynton... Betty Boynton.. ........ Harold Hadley ...... . .... Dean Socrates Boyntbn..... Isaac Zimmerman .... . .... Miss Prunella Thorne.... O'Flarity..............

The class reported that 3117 was taken in. Federal tax amounted to 3l8.82, and production expenses were 8l3.5O. This left a total of 38h.68 for the senior fund.
