Aloysius Eames stood alone looking over the many graves in Hazel Ridge cemetery. Here
were buried many of the illustrious personages his great great grandfather had told about.
These people seemed almost legendary and their exploits were superhuman.
He first noted the huge marble slab inscribed with the name GERRY MCGAHEY. He had
been one of America's greatest flag pole sitters and this monument was erected through public
acclaim. Near it was the stone of DOLORES ANSTEDT whose song "Mother Climb Down
From the Rafter, That's No Way to Get on the Beam" had made Hit Parade fame. She had
been famous the year MARY HARDING had had her novel "Love on a Barbed Wire Fence"
selected by the Literary Guild. Mary had settled down quietly to spend her large fortune.
One of the less pretentious markers was that of EARL PAPENFUS who had been a
gentleman farmer famous throughout the Midwest for his odorless onion. The PALENSHUS
Grocery had been the sole selling agent and cleaned up a fortune. The military grave of BOB
PATEK, General of the Armies, rested next to that of ELEANOR PFAFFENBERGER who had
been a notary public.
Probably the largest marker was that of DON JONES who had made a lot of wealth
through his radio program, "What I Like Most About Me". Yes, it was sponsored by the
Jackson Monument Works.
As Al wandered around he saw many familiar names and thought of many other celebrities.
There was JIMMY LEE who had played the piano at John's and sent three persons to Mendota
after hearing his rendition of the "Boogie B1ues". And there was RUTH MARSH who had
won acclaim as the Singing Lady. Her program had the highest Hooper rating for 1967. That
was the year JIM PADDOCK had won the running meet in the Olympic Games and BETTY
PLAUTZ had been named music instructor to the king of Siam.
From under his arm, Al pulled out the scrapbook of clippings great great grandpa had
made. There was the notice telling about VIVIAN BASS'S latest album of chi1dren's stories
for Decca. A page of cartoons made by DORIS BARTELSON after winning the Lena the
Hyena contest. She had gained her bit of notoriety and had formed a partnership with Al
Capp and Chester Gould.
He read how VIVIAN BECKER had enrolled in Stout Institute and had succeeded very
well. He glanced at the picure of MELVIN BROCKMAN in "'Hamlet" and his other re-
nowned Shakespearean performances. Here was one of HELEN BURN'S beautician ads and
one for JIM POTTER'S Elite Junk and Second Hand Store.
There was the feature story on the elopement of VIOLETTE CERVENKA, the pretty United
Milk secretary, with her boss. One could read how PHYLLIS DASHER had returned to
Elkhorn and been hired as the girl's athletic coach. Not, however, until she had defeated
challenger BOB WEIR in the battle of the century. Also on the faculty was the name of JOHN
FUCHS who was teaching American History.
A new gown by ANN GREGERSON had been all the rage in Hollywood according to the
October, 1977 issue. Model MARILYN DESING had worn it in a style show here sponsored
by the LORRAINE WALBRANDT Garment Mills.
A clipping from the Milwaukee Journal told of the SANDERS Girls 69th week at the
3rd Street Theatre. They were said to have set dancing back one hundred and fifty years as
they had been compared with the Dolly Sisters.
A notice in one corner of the Independent told us that the GRUENWALD Antique Em-
porium had just received a collection of those sought after ink bottles which had long been
gone from the scene with the invention of the pen that wrote for eight hundred years without
refilling. This, by the way, had been invented by AGNES LEACH in her off moments from
A huge picture of JIM HOLDEN and the gigantic swordfish he caught off the Florida
coast covered one page. Since he had become so skilled a fisherman he had opened up his
DONNA IKE had taken a job as Ju Jitsu instructress at one of our large Western uni-
versities and was said to be very good. BARBIE HART, also the athletic type, had become a
teacher at La Crosse after finishing school there.
Many of the class had become radio personalities. JACQUE REMER was made famous
by his renditions of French songs and MARGARET ROETTER had been given her own
radio show after she left the "Golden Slippers" number at the Copacabana.
WARREN RIECK and BILL STOFLET had begun their own plane service and in 1969
bought out Lockhead. GLEN REDENZ had taken a job as bookmaker at Random House or
was it Hialea?
LILLIAN RUPP had become a housewife but her cooking was rumored to be the best
in the state. BARBARA WEAVER had settled down too, but gave many hours to home
demonstration for the Fuller Brush people.
HAROLD SCHMIDT had become an engineer and was called back home when the
bridge over Bakers Creek gave way and a new one was needed. He was accompanied by
DAN SEYMOUR as there were a few legal matters to be cleared up, and Dan was noted for
his clear thinking. 1
DON WUTTKE was now coaching the combined Delavan-Geneva football teams, and had
the most powerful team in Southern Wisconsin, which had never won a game.
In a New York paper appeared the ad for MIKE REED, the society mortician, and also
an article telling of his popularity with the opposite sex. It seems he had a new date every
night. This latter was mentioned in PAT SHARE'S weekly column of gossip. She was the
girl who could get news if anyone could.
WALTER SKOINE had won the Mr. America contest for 1950, and made so much money
from endorsements that he was able to retire to his home in the West before he was thirty.
BEVERLY SOMMERS had risen from bank clerk to president of the State Bank of
Elkhorn. BOB MORRISSEY had become a famous specialist and had entered the firm of
Morrissey, McDermott, and Goldstein. It was rumored he gave a shamrock to every patient.
Al put the book aside and continued his journey among the marble slabs. Perhaps the most
pretentious was that of the class's most illustrious personage, ALICE KIRCHHOFF. She had
been elected Congresswoman from Wisconsin on the Nacilbuper ticket, and was made famous
by her reform whereby all the dirty factories were moved to the country and all the farms
to the city. She had given up her political career, however, to go on the legitimate stage and
had been lauded for her performance in "Blithe Spirit" with the Belfry players.
Al glanced around at the few remaining stones. There was the one for GERRY KURICK
who had been the state's only female cobbler. And BILL BURNS who had opened up a truck-
ing line across the Sahara which later failed, forcing him to come back home.
This had accounted for most of the class. There was still BOB SORENSON who had
come to be known as the Singing Surgeon over WCLO and MARRIANNE DILL who, as in
real life, accompanied him in romantic duets. And also PATTI BUTLER who had been with
Photoplay for years and had married a Hollywood playboy. Then we must not forget NAN-
NETTE LARSON who had been a good secretary, noted for her not removing the creases in
the bosses' pants while sitting on their laps.
Oh, yes, there was DAVID LANSER who had gone to Notre Dame, and was teaching
their football team. He was particularly noted for coaching the four motorcyclists who were
said to be better than the four horsemen. DONNA FORREST had become a prominent
writer and later gone home to the huge family estate in England. CHARLES STRONG had
entered commercial advertising and some of his ads had been compared with Varga.
Al started to go but paused for a moment in front of the marker of great, great grandpa
FRANK. He had taken over the Independent and, in time, bought out the Chicago Tribune
and New York Times. How astounding what this class had done, almost incredible. It was
growing dark so at last he left carrying with him the memory of the class of '47.

Gloom spread over the once gay brick
building on North Jackson and filtered
through the halls. Inside, the many students
were gathered to hear the reading of the
will. The once proud class of 1947 was now
Slowly the probator descended to the plat-
form. He had helped this class along in two
of its four years and felt very sad about its
passing. The students, particularly the Jun-
iors, sat on the edge of their seats awaiting
his every word.
"We, the class of 1947," he began, "being
of quite sound mind ffor who could have
their full senses after four years in high
schoolj and generous heart, do hereby be-
queath our gold qualities to the underclass-
men. To the frenzied Freshmen we leave
our progress and initiative. To' the sophisti-
cated Sophomores we leave our spirit of
cooperation and to the juvenile Juniors we
leave our will to work."
This being over the students relaxed a
little until the second part of the will was
Individually we bestow our most out-
standing qualities to various individuals in
the class below us.

to Jeanie Matheson.
Vivian Bass bestowes her stature on Jack
Ames to do with as he pleases.
Doris Bartleson gives her wistful look

vitalis to Dean 'Burns.
Helen Burns leaves her freckles to Rose
Thompson for her collection.

Crosby. There's a lot of life in her yet.
Ann Gregerson moves from the front
seat of a certain convertible to make room
for Phyllis McKenzie and K-ay Schmidt.
Harold Grunewald leaves his avoirdupois

Geraldine Kurick leaves her shyness to
At this point the probater paused and took
a drink of water and then continued :
"David Lanser leaves ,those bulging
muscles to David Sanders and Frank Blesser.
If that doesn't work, try Wheaties."
Nannette Larson leaves her "Chevie" to
Howard Wheeler. Do you think it's better
than what you've got?
Agnes Leach gives her ability to get into
homeroom just as the bell rings to Myrna
Genens. That should make it just about
Jim Lee leaves his tact with the teachers
of the fairer sex to John Weaver. Be careful
how you use it, John.
Ruth Marsh leaves her musical ability
to Jim Jacobson. It can be an asset to the
Gerald McGahey leaves his blondes to

Claude Seaver. You can be a soprano next
Bud Palenshus leaves his genius to Eddy
Elaenor Pfaffenberger leaves her "short
hand" to Joe Icke.
Betty Plautz withdraws her foot from the
pedal to make room for Joan Martin. You
will get plenty of practice in the school song.
Jim Potter leaves his good old truck to
Bob Hanny. Well, it gets you places.
Mike Reed leaves his wolf call to Don
Amonn. You can pick it up at the nearest
Jacque Remer leaves his priority on the

bakery to Avis Junge and Barbie Clauer.
Just don't eat up all of the profits.
Pat Sanders leaves her characteristic walk
to Betty Temlitz.
Polly Sanders leaves her ability to know

Catlin and Betty Erickson. You can write
a weekly gossip column girls.
Danny Seymour leaves his technique in
chemistry to Bob Schmaling. He is taking
his other technique with him.
Harold Schmidt leaves his assuredness to
Virginia Reed. Need we say more.
Again the probator paused and swallowed
the remaining contents of his glass, took a
deep breath, and continued:
"Pat Share leaves her little black book
to Margie Schultz. Should be good reading.
Walter Skoine leaves his wavy black hair
to Patty Enright.
Beverly Sommer bestowes her ability as
dancer upon Marion Matheson.
Bob Sorenson leaves his "Dill" to Bar-
bara Newman. For canning purposes nat-

to Carol Kurtz. All of it.

homecoming queen to Beatty Noble. Make
good use of it, Beatty.
Barbara Weaver leaves her "Wait for me"
to Al Hobbs, Bill Rowe, and Bill Dunbar.
Bob Weir leaves his beard to Ken Amonn.
Look out Monty Wooley.
Don Wuttke leaves those strong shoulders
for Carol Tess and Doris Grundman."
The probator was near exhaustion but
gathered up enough energy to finish the
third and last part.
"Lastly, but not leastly, we, the class of
1947, bestow our thanks and gratitude upon
our advisors, Miss Oliva, Miss Sullivan, and
Mr. Tolles. We leave our utmost thanks to
our principal, Mr. Knudtson and the many
teachers who have aided us these four
The probator colapsed, the students left,
but now the will had been read. Then in
September the building opened again, though
many familiar faces were missed the old
school continued right along.
