McKinley's beautiful brcwn hair gots to Suzanne Maas. John Waters walks away from his Driver's Ed. Class with no regrets. Richard Walsh leaves his skating ability to Barry Bennett since he spends most of his time on the floor. JoAnn Varone gives her nostalgic memories of E. H. S. to Clarice Pemberton, who has plenty of her own already, al- though she has only been here one year. Susie Gudermuth donates her beautiful complexion to any girls who want it. Bill Rowe is glad that he is departing so h-2 can join Margaret Kincaid. Garnet Wunderlich gives her typing speed to anyone who can use it. Mary Sue Goodner contrib- utes her baton twirling to Janet Benton. Bob Hacke leaves his "bomb" to Melvin Polkinghorne who definitely could use a change from his scooter. Joyce Hinds wills hier dimples to Sharon Funk. Kenneth Harris leaves his wavy hair to Mark Haley who has plenty of his own. Wayne Harness passes on his quick answers in chemistry to all the chemistry students of next year. Dave Monroe gives his hcight to Bill Weintge. Dennis Nolde wills his black hair to Mary Gudermuth. We wonder how she will like the new color. Irene Rackovan leaves behind her hook shot in basketball to all the future Billikin players. Gerald Pemberton and Bill Rowe leave their mechanical brains to anyone who can repair Mrs. Stenerson's "rod" when it's out of whack. The Senior Class as a whole bequeaths the choice seats in assembly to the Juniors, who have been waiting for the chance to sit in them for three years. To the sophomores we leave our determination to enjoy every minute of our High School experiences. To the Freshmen we leave our ability to arrange our schedule to get out on first bell all of the time. Departing seniors in band leave behind a memory of four active and pleasant years filled with activity, musical and social, and kinda wish in a way that they could take more than the memories with them. To the many juniors waiting with bated breath, the American Problems and Bookkeeping classes l-:ave their empty classrooms. The bookkeeping students might like to pass on their completed workbooks, but wary Miss J. says no. The speech classes leave an empty stage and an un- touched assembly schedule to the next year's assortment, The "advanced" girls having profited from a year of "laboratory" work in the office, are naw ready to turn over their experimental sta- tions to the new class of aspiring office workers. The publications class, all seniors, leaves as a record of a year of hard but pleasant work, this 1956 Eurekana, trusting the students will enjoy the efforts of the class. All dispositions are final and binding. Attested this 24th day of May in the year of our Lord 1956. Pattie Parker, Secretary Witnesses thereto: Ruth Ann Atwell Doris Vernell Wright 'D

went off the air. Nancy Lee Taus was working on Betty Crock2r's pro- gram, but now she has her own hornemaking show. On Search For To- morrow, we find Fayfe Schubel in a very serious love entanglement which threatens to ruin her young life if things don't get better. Victor Smith is now teaching shorthand and typing at EHS and among his pupils he finds brothers and sisters of his own class- mates. Barb Ferguson, Judy Fritz, and Karen Fick are singing together and their sister act is now playing at the Palladium in London. They have been there for a month and are still wowing them. Dave Edington went West to seek his fame and fortune and is now one of Hollywood's top movie producers. Ronald Flentgen is an eminent minister and is now traveling around the country lecturing on "Man and His Struggle To Exist In a Hostile World." Mary Sue Goodner has just been crowned Baton-Twirling Queen of the World at the annual contest in Miami. All you cats look out! Susie Gudermuth and her partner, Barb Flagg, are fingerprint experts with the F.B.I.. and they have the prints of all their classmates. Vincent Howard's debating ability has stood him in good stead. He has been active in Washington for a long while and is now our ambassa- dor to Italy, France, Poland, and Russia. Bob Hacke and Ken Harris are still up to their monkeyshines. But that's because th'y're working in an auto body shop as grease monkeys. Wayne Harness and Lorraine Hart- mann are in Rome studying to be sculptors. Wayne's first effort, which he entitled "Nothing", won a blue ribbon at a recent exhibition in Paris. John Johnson, John Paul Jones, and Jim Miederhoff are now getting their 56 piece orchestra ready for their opening at the Copa Cabana. This engagement will mark th-eir fourth anniversary On the nightclub circuit. David Messerla is a barber. It took him a long time to get here, because he couldn't learn to shave the balloon without breaking it. His specialty now is th-e Hollywood Haircut. Dave Mulvaney is a tap dancing instructor at Arthur Van Muriel's Studio and is so good that he is bringing tap dancing into the ballroom. Bobby Schimsa became mayor of Eureka three years ago and has been mayor ever since. He attributes all his campaigning success to Miss E. Johnson's speech class. Dennis Nolde and Dave Monroe are serving life terms in the French Foreign Legion. And why? To get away from the girls who were chasing them so furiously. They joined the Legion just last year. Joyce Hinds is now Dean of one of Missouri's top universities. Allan Koebel is giving flying lessons-kit-e flying, that is. His plane went down two weeks ago and he is trying to earn enough to buy anoth- er plane by giving these lessons. Bill Lyons is now modeling eye lashes for the "Our Own Oddities' Company. He has worked for them since they saw his picture in the Eurekana. Jo Ann Konneman answered the 564,000,000 question on last week's program and went out and bought Texas the next day. By the way, Hal March had to quit because he started slipping the contest- ants easy questions and Bill Lewis took over his job as M. C. on the program. Doris McGee and Pat Lanpher took jobs as cigarette girls at Cir0's so that they can get free all the cigarettes they want. Doctor Jim Murray is now the physician at EHS. His specialty is broken noses, but he will repair the minor damage done by the reckless here. Irene Racko- van, a stewardess on the EFE Special-Escape From Eureka, is engaged to the pilot of her plane. Very soon she is going to give up her job and get married. She wonders what kind of stewardess her husband will get once she is on the ground. Dorothy Robfrts is using her talent for twisting pretzels at the Sally-No-Good Company. She is the originator of the delightful new shapes in pretzels these days. Bill Rowe is running a used car lot. "Here today. gone tomorrow" is his motto. And he is certainly right. He has a complete turnover every day. Of course, he has only two cars on his lot at a time and that may account for it. Ruth Rufkahr has taken over Martha Cur's column in the Sunday Evening Post. People from all over the world write to her, and she answers all of them personally, writing an average of 300 letters a day. Myrna Sparks has married h-sr Texan and they have moved to the Sahara Desert where they are caretakers of the oases. Allan Stroud now owns a Turkish Bath. Through a dense fog we see him at his occupation of chief masseur. James Umphres was one of his best customers for so long that Allan took him into partnership. Jo Ann Varone is still work- ing her way through college studying to be a licorice twister. Must be a tough course. John Waters is now a Professor of Fine Arts at the Academy of North Africa. He teaches the natives how to play a congo drum like Brandy Marlo. We see that Nancy Wendell owns her own Rhythm and Blues record shop on Hollywood and Vine. Her most frequent customer is that real gone gal, Sandy Duff, who buys all the newest records as soon as they are released. Last of all, we see through the crystal ball that Gloria Webber is modeling Goggle-Lu eye glasses for the Oop Shoop Spectacle Company. Now that we have seen what the Senior Class of 1956 will be doing 10 years from now, the haze returns to cloud the crystal ball for anoth- er year. We hope that the members of the class will go out immediately after graduation and apply for their respective jobs.
