Sen zor Prophecy
You know I had the strange st dream last night' It was about my class the
Semors of 1950 I seemed to see them all as 1960 will find them' I don't know if
dreams come true or not what do you think? ? 'P
I saw Councilman Jack Swanson at the Svea Town meeting With Mr Swanson
as guest of honor was the distinguished Senator B S Quinn who has risen to
great heights in politics Helen Janisch was in Washington D C serving as Mr
Qu1nn's private secretary Then I saw Don Krause coaching his own pygmy basket
ball team in South America It seems they wouldn't let him coach in this country
he d1dn't want to go by the rules' Joy Seyforth was head trombomst for Spike Jones
and his City Slickers Bonnie Bjornson and Beverly Marklevxts were livxng in a
two family house both happily married There were so zrxany kids running around
you couldn't tell the Mernmans from the Parmeters' Merlin Garl1d had become a
successful mouthpiece for the underworld of Ellsworth He became proficient in
such matters during those days spent 1h "ball and chain ' in Ellsworth High' Vernon
Allie was a very successful Doctor of Psychiatry For some unknown reason the
greatest number of his patients were women Joe Klingensmith had a popular flow
er shop in New York and he had done extremely well Violet Muhlhausen was his
right hand helper It seemed Bernie Giebler had his own bowling alley in California
and a large one thirty one alleys Betty Gipford had her own home bakery She
was selling wonderful pies made with her own little hands Audrey Bloomstrand
was chief operator at Pierres exclusive beauty salon in New York I saw Beverly
ing for Daisy Mae in the comic strip You know Mary got her start 1n Ellsworth
High School Carol King was running the most exclusive restaurant in Beldenville
doing fine' Clair Hove was selling cars for the Hove garage Alice Gutting was the
new owner and operator of the Ellsworth Farr Grounds Pavxlion fSt1ll there every
Friday night' Arlene Wiskerchen was playing drums for Vernon's Orchestra
famous in the Bay City area An outstanding Ellsworth farmer I recognized as
Alfred Betterly on his eighty acres Lila Jean Kinneman was the wife of General
Hobbs now stationed in Washington D C Mrs Dewayne Huber the former
Millie I-Iulverson was a happy farmer's wife and mother of ten lovely boys Ralph
Lindstrom had a large horse breeding ranch out West and was the owner of many
famous racing horses Maxine Hines had a trucking business and was followmg
in her father's footsteps She knows now that bookkeeping was good for her
Elsie Sward was running a day nursery using Mr Fredr1ckson's technique for
putting kids to sleep Shirley Swenson was head nurse of the Prescott hospztal and
seemed very happy 1n her work She likes to talk to the inmates Vivian
Anderson was runmng Riverside Roller Skating but it seemed she had lost some
of her interest of late Dick Bjornson was a carpenter at F1sherman's Rest fixing
chairs and part time bouncer at Tommy's Rosie Nelson was the most famous
bubble dancer at the Alvin and 1S a great crowd drawer The secret of her suc
cess is a bathing suit under the bubble Marlys Bohn was speaker of the House
of Representatives first woman to achxeve this position Elroy Sanford was
coachmg six man football for the El Paso Professional team Kathleen Geibler was
touring the world in her new rocket ship and seeing the wonders of the world Mary

Ellen Kopp was assistant 'Geometry ' teacher in the University of Beldenville Jim
Johnson was operating a dancing school called "Carol and J1m's School of Popular
Dances " Miss Roberta Wider was the Marshall of Beldenville she d1dn't have a y
trouble keeping track of the local boys there Bonnie and Ritchie Peterson had
formed the Peterson's Perpetual Protective League I d1dn't quite get the reason
for setting up of the League clouds seemed to block my vision Ronnie Anderson
had just been named Mr Multiple Muscle Man of 1960 In Times Square I saw a
sign "Charity Kisses Under the sign were Juanita Parameter and Kathy
Brookshaw busy as bees Bonita Young was a lady missionary 1n the South Sea
Islands her biggest Job being to keep clothes on the natives It seems David
Huber keeps setting fire to grass skirts Tom Sequin was the head of Elevated
Shoes Company in Michigan And there was a Pond s girl named Frances Ortwerth
in Woolworth's 5 and IOC modeling Pond's face cream Frances was happy to an
nounce that she started her career when she was in high school at Ellsworth
found Mari Raebel and Doris Altaffer engaged in teaching the Arthur Murray's Dance
the hopefuls flying" around the gym! Then through the haze I saw an imposing
building inscribed "Eaton's Escort Agency" of River Falls Doris had left the
management of the place to a fellow named Pachachek Donna Fleming was secre
tary to the secretary of the under secretary of Camne Control Week of Bay City
David Sobottka is now head of the United Mine Workers taking the place of the bo1s
terous John L Lewis who kicked the bucket Neil Cady was Secretary of Agriculture
in the Pres1dent's cabinet and he told me that Senator Quinn was the one who used
his pull ' to get him the Job Gilbert Northey was head of salesmen's un1on they
sell the Toni Gilbert got into the Toni business when in high school Mary Jane
Haessly has now set up her own studio in River Falls and she colors pictures while
Jerry works for her 1n the darkroom Helen Green had pulled down a great honor
as the first Mayor of Tr1mbelle Brian Kirby who we hardly recognized in that
red wig was playing the part of Father in the stage play "L1fe With Father"

Tune We Just Couldn't Say Goo bye
We knew that school was over
That we were really through
We sa1d we d1dn't care much
That we'd beg1n anew
And you can all belleve us
We re st1ll 1ntend1n' to
But 1t's so hard to say good bye
The books and desks and lockers
They broke r1ght down and crled
The wlndows started calhng
For us to come 1ns1de
We ll tell you conf1dent1ally
But we just had to say good bye
The clocks were strlklng four o'cloek
They smxled on us below
Twlth outstretched hands they seemed to say
We ll m1ss you when you go
But we'l1come back to see her
And look around once xnore
Remernberxng games and part1es
And fun at every door
And we re not very happy
Although we knew before
That we d just have to say Good bye

Homecoming! The biggest event on the E. H. S. school calendar more than
lived up to expectations! The many planning, decorating, and entertainment committees
all helped to make this a bang-up celebration. "Rush 'Em With Ruhsam" was chosen
as our slogan for this year and adorned our Homecoming pins, which were students
Admission Badges to all the festivities. Strut and Fret Club directed all Homecoming
On Thursday night the Bonfire and Snake Dance were held and, being the night
before-Homecoming, a lot of pep was shown by the students. Talks were given by the
Senior football players and coaches, and pep-yells and songs made the night air ring
with enthusiasm. Coach Dave Ruhsam introduced the Homecoming Royalty - Queen
Doris Eaton, King Ralph Lindstrom, Attendants Arlene Wiskerchen and Don Murphy,
Carol Place and Ronnie Anderson. Following the Bonfire the cheerleaders led the
Snake Dance through Ellsworth to East End and back. After this exertion the "kids"
crashed the gates at the theatre for the late movie.
At last Friday came - the day everyone had been looking forward to! The stu-
dents were busy in the forenoon, putting the finishing touches on their floats. At two-
thirty everyone reported to the gym for the biggest pep-meeting of the year, which
consisted of a "Midget Quartette" pep stunt, talks, formal introduction of the royalty,
and more songs and yells. After the pep-rneeting students lined up their floats in
front of school and the impressive parade began, led by the band, the majorettes and
cheerleaders, and continuing to East Ellsworth. Every club and class was represented
by a float, making one of the biggest and best parades in E. H. S. history. The Queen
and her Royal Court rode in state on the beautifully decorated Strut and Fret float.
The Seniors took first prize on their float, and the Juniors second. Float chairmen
were: - Seniors - Mary Jane Haessly, Juniors - Jim Quinn.
Next on our busy program was the event which all the others had been leading up
to - the GAME! Our team, which had won from all opponents so far, was finally
taken by the powerful Menomonie team, 7-0. Our boys put up a wonderful fight, how-
ever, and every Homecoming fan was justly proud of our outstandingly "game" team.
A very large crowd attended the Homecoming Dance, held in the attractively
arrayed gymnasium after the game. Those attending danced to the music of "The
Falconaires", an excellent orchestra from R. F. S. T. C. At eleven P. M. Coach
Ruhsam crowned Queen Doris and King Ralph at the throne platform along the south
wall. Refreshments were served throughout the dance, which continued until midnight.
All in all, our 1949 Homecoming celebration proved to be a lot of work, and a
lot more fun! ! It was one we'll remember for a long time!

real success Sponsored by the Junior Class this dance was held at E H S for the
first time Judgmg from its popularity however we are looking for it to become an
annual event Our gym walls were decorated with "little brown Jugs ' corncob pipes

of a mountain cabin At intermission a lunch was served and a contest held to select
Mr and Miss Dogpatch" They were Vernon Allie and Mary Sheldrew whose pic

who attended especially as the boys transferred financial responsibility to the girls
for the evening and had a lot of fun with this turn about" plan!

Ellsworth vs The Purple vs
Our third conference v1ctory was at the
expense of lowly Baldwin Remembering
our defeat of the previous fall the Pan
thers were out to redeem themselves
and they d1d just that by rolling over
Baldwin w1th their best score of the year
Z7 0 After taking the opening kickoff
the Hubbers marched down the field to
take the lead with tail back Allie going
over for the s1x pointer and addlng a
mce kick Although the Hub had an
early 7 O lead the Baldwin team was
coming fans a good game and when they
took the offense they began to riddle the
powerful Purple line for good gains
Only after putting together several f1rst
downs were they stopped The Panthers
sounded again in the second quarter
this time with Jim Gxlbertson crashing
off tackle for the counter They scored
their extra point on a pass from All1e to
Snooks to take a 14 0 lead at the half
Ellsworth scored again in the tlurd quar
ter with Jim G scoring that touchdown
The try for point failed so the score
stood at Z0 0 In the last half Jim
Gxlbertson went over for our fourth
touchdown of the n1ght Lafe kicked the
ball squarely over the goal and the score
read Z7 0
The Panthers traveled to the Valley de
termined to show Cub Brookes that
Ellsworth had more spirit and guts ' than
Spring Valley could handle since Cub
had broadcast his confidence of an easy
Spring Valley victory The Purple boys
took the Valley 7 0 and with a l1ttle
help from Lady Luck it could have been
better' After flndlng out that the Valley
forward wall would be hard to pierce the
Panthers caught the Valley flatfooted with
a quick kick As a Valley back tried to
Snooks was on the ball The Hubbers
crossed the Valley goal with J1m
Gilbertson carrying the mail around
three plays later and Murph crashing
through for the extra point While their
stubborn defense held the Valley in check
the Panther backs went to work although
they lost much good yardage on penalt1es
In the second half the Panthers continued
to rack up yardage and the Valley line be
came a stubborn bunch to crack Spring
Valley threatened to score in the final
quarter but there the Ellsworth line rose
to great heights The Valley boys could
n't counter against the Purple on four
attempts' The game ended 1n the locals
favor as the score read 7 0 The Pan
thers deserved much credit for defeat
ing the b1g Valley eleven and pre serving
the1r victory string

Panthe r s vs
After scoring four consecutive conference
wins the Panthers took on a non-confer-
ence foe in Boyceville However it took
excellent defensive work by game captain
Jim Johnson to keep those boys from get-
ting away on some dangerous jaunts The
Panthers scored early on an end run by
Lafe Allie who put on a good running
display in this particular play An Allie-
to-"Snooks pass scored the extra point
and the I-Iubbers took the lead 7-0 I
the second half the teams played even
ball for a quarter, and then E H S
started to move down the field After a
sustained march which took them to the
visitors' two-yard line the attack bog-
ged down On fourth down Allie threw a
pass to Snooks which was taken in the
end zone but was nullified Snooks'
taking a Nilssen-aerial sped thirty
yards to make the score 13-0 Next
year's team received some valuable ex
perience during this contest especially
since Brian Kirby and Bill Quinn regu
lar left guard and quarterback were out
of the game with injuries Let it be said
that Boyceville had one of the scrappiest
teams to play here m a long time!
Ellsworth's r0ugh'n tough football team
lost their big game of the season to a rug-
ged Menomonie eleven Prior to the game
both Ellsworth and Menomonie were tied
for first place but after the struggle
Menomonie was left on top of the roost.
The weather played a big part in the final
outcome of the game as the mud and a
stiff wind limited both team's passing
attacks However the game proved to
an interesting one as both teams knew it
was The One they had to win Menomonie
took no chances and scored their line
touchdown in the first quarter looking
far superior to the E H S. eleven This
touchdown seemed to pep the Panthers
up and now they began to play ball some
what up to par The rest of the game was
pretty much of a standstill as neither team
became a scoring threat. Although
Menomonie came out on top they knew
they had been in a battle Let it be said
that our team never gave up fighting al
though few of our fellows were at their
peak for the game
