After a few weeks we went on a class trip to Poinette, Wisconsin, where we visited the game farm. As Sophomores we returned to school the following year. At the end of the year we sponsored the high school picnic. During our Junior year we put on a class play, 'The Skeleton Walksn. Then came the prom. Our theme was WSomewhere over the Rainbown, with Lou Ann Leist and Richard Olson reigning as king and queen. Entering our Senior year, A9 strong, we made our plans for a success- ful Homecoming. We sponsored the Homecoming, presented a class play, took our Senior class trip, and graduated on May 26, 1955. 17 1, 'Y n S ,Mm W fig- ,, ' 2 f .51 53 slla , , N, ,,..

Nobody 45 CLASS PROPHECY As the year 1965 rolled around I left my New York home for a visit to Wiscon- sin. I was interested in looking up some of my old classmates of the class of 55'- I was preparing to board the plane when I heard a familiar voice say 'You may take the car home James, I shall call you when I return.W I turned to see who the familiar voice belonged to, and much to my surprise it was Elaine Ander- son. I learned that she is now a famous interior decorator. She was 'en route to Elroy on vacation. As we boarded the plane together we saw another of our class. It was Coral Downing. She informed us that she and her sister Emogene are head stewardesses over more than one hundred planes. She also told us that Arnold Steffen and John Singletary are the top pilots of the line. The plane was almost ready to take off when we heard a commotion. A lady came in with six children. It was Elaine Retzlaff. She always wanted twelve. When we landed in Madison who should we see but Carl Ballenger. He was leaving for the far east. It seems the President delegated him to look over the situation there. We found that our plane was to be delayed overnight so we headed for a ho- tel. As we hailed a taxi the words on the side of the taxi WPreuss Taxi Ser- vicen caught our eye. We asked the driver if it was our old classmate and sure enough it was Roger Preuss and doing all right for himself too, the big- gest taxi line in Madison. The taxi took us to the Madden Hotel. As we checked in, a tall handsome man walked over to us. It was none other than Jerry Madden. That night we went out to dinner at a fashionable restaurant called ULee's Lodgen. We were honored to receive an invitation from the owner, Eugene Lee, to dine with him in his private dining room. The charming hostess of the rest- aurant was Gleva Gerken. From there we went to the exclusive 'Klep's Kountry Klubn, owned and oper- ated by Jon Kleppe. There we danced to the music of the WJohnson Swingmastersn featuring the leader, Tom Johnson and his trombone. Later we were entertained by the lovely singing of Beverly Biermeier. Then we went back to the hotel to get a good night's sleep. The next morning at breakfast we were astonished to meet Paul Rebelein. We found that he is now basketball coach at the University. After breakfast we went for a swim in Lake Mendota. As we watched a beauti- ful yacht cruising by we learned that it belonged to Verna Fowler and Barbara Pofg who were spending a week end of leisure in Madison. hen we left the beach to go shopping. Passing a newstand we noticed the headlines of the paper 'JET PROPELLED CAR COMPLETED.' Taking a closer look we read, THE FANTASTIC JET-PROPELLED AUTO OF THE AGE, UGINNY'S JET JOB' HAS BEEN GIVEN ITS TEST RUN. VIRGINIA SCHWEIGER, DARING AND SKILLED TEST DRIVER YESTER- DAY TORE UP THE SALT FLATS IN UTAH BY CRUISING ALONG AT A SPEED OF 600 MILES PER HOUR. THE CAR WAS DESIGNED BY THE NOTED DESIGNER, CHARLES HUSCHKA. We proceeded on our trip to the Heller and Young Beauty Salon. We had a good talk with Dick and Pahl about the good old days in EHS. As we walked on down the street we heard a booming voice from inside an un- dertaking establishment. It was the voice of Richard Olson, who said, 'You stab em---We'1l slab em'. Playing funeral music was Marx Rose Miller. Richard told us that Ferdon Crawford is minister of the largest congregation in Madison and often performed burial services for him. Walking down the street with a French Poodle dog, we met Pat Sterba, who is now the biggest star of Twentieth Century Fox. As we were talking, her dog dashed in front of a car and was injured. The nearest vetinarian was on the far side of town. As we went into the office we found that it was run by Pat Burdick and her assistant, Bob Rogers. We left the dog for treatment and went back to our shopping. A huge neon sign, WIKE'S FASHIONSW, caught our attention. As we went in we were greeted by Arlene Knutson, the owner. She invited us to attend the fashion show. Her most noted noted models are, Helen Ormson, Lou Ann Leiet, Dorna Mae Miller and Marie Schauer. It was almost time for our plane to take off for Elroy, so we went to the air port. After a flight of fifteen minutes we landed at the Elroy Municipal Airport It is owned and operated by Barb Fowler and her husband. Just as we were leaving the airport Barb came skimming across the runway in her private plane. At lunch time we went to a huge new restaurant set up where the old high .46 CLASS PROPHECY CONTINUED school used to be. It is run by Shirley Bentz and Bethel Duell, and very approp- riately called, WThe Hilltoppern. There we saw Rita Cleaver, who is now the ed- itor of the Elroy Leader Tribune. From them we learned that Carole Radl and Ramona Tracy are co-supervisors of the new Riverside Hospital, built on the banks of the beautiful, scenic Baraboo River. As we were driving through the countryside we noticed a beautiful farm with a sign reading, 'Oeikes Acresn. We stopped to see Gene, and he told us that the Clark brothers, Paul and Nevada, have taken to exploring. Their latest expedition was to the deepest jungles in Africa. On our way back to town we stopped at the home of Marge Pliner and her hus- band. Marge greeted us at the door with their three children. We asked them how EHS is getting along these days and they said they like the principal LaVere Leverenz real well. Then we went to the Tessmer residence. It seems that Marge and her husband have taken over the Elroy Dairy. They told us that Dorothy West is now happily married and owns a large department store in Elroy. Georgenne Van Hecker and Darlene are the supervisors of the ten story building. The only class member we hadn't located was Jo Young. We learned from friends that she is in Paris designing clothes. Now that we knew where everyone was we decided to have a reunion. After much concentration we decided to have it at 'Klep's Kountry Klub', in Madison. by Arlene Knutson Elaine Anderson 47 Jerry -i f 25 if Marle DIAPERS TO DIPLOMAS Dornd i H.. . as George Carl, M.R., Pahl X Ji il 55Mmf.1 - -:zu - d.-k, i Wi gnu V '1,k Y ' .VVV I A qs. , V 2 I :W ' ,, gwif " -kagwgwy L 5 .
