Warren Bates, Student Council: Shirley Thomas, Reporterg Eleanor Bane, Secretary -Treasurerg David O'Neall,
President: Larry Lucas, Vice-President.
In the fall of 1954 we entered Ellsworth High School as twenty "Green Freshmen."
We elected Larry Lucas as president.
We came back the following year with a class of eighteen. The school year began
by initiating some very frightened freslnnen. Marla Gaines was president.
We went into our junior year by living up to our name as "Jolly Juniors." Dave
O'Neall was elected president. For money-making projects, we picked up corn and
sponsored a "Snowball Dance." We were happy to have Eleanor Bane and Carroll New
berry elected Queen and King of the Sweetheart Ball. For our class play we chose
"Boarding House Reach." The theme of the junior-Senior Prom was "Spring Fantasy,'
and Don Hubert's orchestra furnished the music.
We returned to E.C.H.S. for our last year in the fall of 1957. David O'Neall
was elected class president. For the class play we chose "Her Kissln' Cousin."
Shirley Thomas won the Betty Crocker Award, and Marla Gaines and David O'Neall
were chosen D.A.R. and S.A.R. winners.
We, the Senior Class of 1958, being of sound mind and forgetful memory hereby
make, publish, and declare this to be our first and last Will and Testament.
To Ellsworth High School, we, the Senior Class, will a larger candy machine to
prevent the "line-up" between classes .
To the Junior Class, we will a special pop cooler so they won't have to use the
snow, as we did.
To the Sophomore Class, we will our technique of getting at the right place at the
right time--especially on tours .
To the Freshman Class, we will our ability to set a good example as blameless
students. Our record has been spotless.
I, Larry Lucas, will my ability to get along with Junior boys to Jerry Williams.
I, Shirley Thomas, will my nickname, "Sam," to Maxine Emberton so she may
carry on my name for being so well behaved.
I, Kenny Herman, will my good looks to Janet Brent.
I, Raymond Killian, will my ability to skip classes to jeff Adams.
I, Don Crutcher, will my train whistle to Jim Knight.
I, Marla Gaines, will my flats to Helen Woodford so her feet won't get so tired.
I, Warren Bates, will all my black strips I have around Ellsworth to Dick Young.
I, Don Coale, will my ability to get along with Mr. Somers to Glenn Stille.
I, Harvey Brent, will my ability to stay out of trouble to Loren Carter.
I, Betty Davis, will my shyness to Margie Parker.
I, Carroll Newberry, will my ability to be a good kid to Alice Carlson.
I, Dale Walden, will my ability to stutter to Nancy Keene.
I, Dean Sturgeon, will my cigars to George Scott to smoke on school trips: and to
Jackie Wall I will my height.
I, David O'Neall, will my ability to keep out of fights to David Young.
I, Eleanor Bane, will my safe driving in the "50 Special" to Barbara Newberry
and hope she will be a better driver than I am.
Signed, sealed, published, and declared as their
last Will and Testament by the Class of 1958.
Recently I received a letter from my old classmate, Eleanor Bane, inviting me to
a television show in New York City. Eleanor had just returned from Europe, where
she had been starring in some operas.
I was on vacation, so I decided to see the show. As I was boarding the plane to
New York, I was surprised to see that the pretty stewardess was Shirley Thomas.
After we were in the air, Shirley asked me if I would like to meet the pilot. I said I
would, so we went up front. I was glad to see that I was in such good hands, for the
pilot was David O'Neall and the co-pilot was Donald Crutcher.
After we had landed in New York, I called a taxi to take me to my hotel which was
owned by Kenneth Herman. When I was registered and was given my key, I discovered
that the bellboy was Raymond Killian.
I shopped the next day for an outfit to wear to the television show. On the front of
the shop was a sign which read, "Marla Gaines' Dress Shoppe," so I went in and bought
That evening when I arrived at the theater, the usher, who was Donald Coale, sat
me as close to the front as he could. It wasn't long before the show started . When I
saw that the emcee was Dean Sturgeon, I just couldn't believe it. He introduced such
acts as Warren Bates and his Bongos. Since Elvis has gone to the Army, Warren has
the teenagers rolling in the aisles. Next was Betty Davis with her trained chimps .
Her husband, Larry Lucas, assisted her. Harvey Brent then sang a song dedicated to
me. I was thrilled.
After the show, a party was held in honor of the 1958 Ellsworth High graduates. I
left the party in gay spirits and hailed a taxi. The driver was Carroll Newberry, who
told me the president of the taxi corporation was Dale Walden.
I had only a few days of my vacation left, so I thought I would go home and get some
rest before going back to my job. '

The Juniors all agree that this year has been a happy one as well as a successful
one. They received their class rings at the beginning of the year and were quite pleased
For money-making projects, they sold candy and pop at ball games, took part in
the annual magazine drive, and sponsored a dance, which was the most fun of all. Our
dance, The Stardust Ball, was held near the Christmas holidays. They had a new band,
Don Smith and his Stardusters, whom everyone liked. The Junlors also put on a play,
"The Able Miss Cain," in December. They all hope that they enjoy the next year at
E. C. H. S. as much as they dld this one.

Christmas cards and had a scrap iron drive which added dollars to their class fund

tary, Nancy Walter, Vice-President: Barbara Parker, President.
In the fall of 1957 a group of 13 new Freshmen entered school with a new light,
for this was their first day in Ellsworth High. They all were pretty nervous, but
surprisingly, they made it through the day. The first day of school they had a class
meeting to elect officers .
During their Freshman year they have sold magazines and statlonery and have
also had a paper drive.
Unfortunately, they lost four members of their class: Donna Boitnott, Ilene Mar-
tin, Bernard Lane, and Clay Haney. Since that time they have received a new addi-
tlon to the class, Harold Davis from Macon, Illinois.
They are looking forward to their remaining three years at Ellsworth High Schoo
and are hoping they will be as much fun and as enjoyable as this year.

ing chapter officers: President, Nancy Keeneg Vice-President, Eleanor Baneg Secre-

Chairman of Public Relations, Marla Galnesg Reporter, Margie Coale: Historian Bar-

The main events of the year were the Pledge Service in September, the Formal
Initiation in January, the Sweetheart Ball ln February, a potluck luncheon in mid-year,
and a Carolling with a Chili supper following, during the Christmas season. A tour of
Bloomington proved to be very enjoyable and educational. A gift shop featuring imports
Klemm's Linen Department, and Stern's Furniture Store were visited. Later in the
year a scavenger hunt was planned.
Helen Woodford, a Junior, will attend State Camp at Lake Bloomington.

"Her Kissln' Cousln" is a play about high school people and by hlgh school people.
It ls founded on the theme that people seem different when they are not ln the same
homogenous group. "But deep down lnslde, " as Randolph Fltzhugh sald, "they are
alike." Lucy Lee comes up from the deep South and works her charms on the North-
ern boys, much to the disgust of their respective dating partners and her cousin. A
plot develops that puts Lucy Lee where she belongs and the glrls back with their old
dates. Randolph Fltzhugh is ready to take Lucy Lee back down home where she belongs.
