Well, I finally got back into the swing of
things by going back to school today. I was
really glad to see all of the gang. I got
stuck with the top shelf of our locker again!
I don't know why I always decide to have a
shorty for a locker partner. The muscles in
my arms are aching from carrying so many books
to my classes. I got lucky for a change 'cause
I have at least five cute boys in every class!
The usual thing happened - a freshman
walked calmly through the guarded seniu'doors1
The seniors were there ready and willing to
explain why he shouldn't walk through them
again until he becomes a senior.
Well, this day has really proved exciting.

ADVICE FROM THE COACH BEFORE THE GAM VOLLEYBALL GIRLS IN A HUDDLE
GETTING READY FOR REPORT CARDS
STUDENTS GOING HOME ON THE BUS
I went to the most exciting volleyball game
tonight. Both the A and B Teams won. If they
play as well all year, we should have a good
season. The pep squad sounded swell! It
gave me the old school spirit!
Our report cards will be due soon, and I
have the same old worry. . . nmking the honor
roll. We tried to explain to our teachers that
the warm weather keeps us from studying. They
just don't understand because they say test
tomorrow, and so we have a test! My history
notebook is due and I'm in the same old rut,
I'm behind two chapters.
I have a date for the dance tomorrow night
with the cutest boy! The seniors are having
the dance to welcome the freshmen, and I think
I'm more excited than they are. If I don't
have time to write tomorrow, it is because I
have to spend the day planning what I'll wear
tomorrow night. Maybe Mother will let me get
a new dress. Wish me luck---.

COACHES DISCUSS IMPORTANT PLAY CHEERLEADERS LEAD A YELL
We won!! We beat Ste. Genevieve in a swell
footballgame tonight. I think the pep assembly
we had today gave the fellows extra pep. They
played as hard as they could and they really
looked great! Confidentially, I don't think
the team or the coaches could be any happier
than I am at the present moment. A game like
that makes you forget all of your worries
Qlike failing a testl.
I worked in the junior stand at the half
and after the game. My feet aren't what you
would call rested, but it's worth it! When I
go on the senior trip, I know I'll be glad I
did my share of the work. Cleaning up the
field was fun because I could watch all of
those good-looking football players walk away
with a bright smile on their happy faces.
I saw Hhimn play in intramurals today and
he really looked swell. Here's hoping he'll
ask me to go to the next football game.

At last it is over! All this excitement and suspense gets
you down. Harriet Boswell was crowned queen and Don Neavill
was crowned king in our annual Farmington High School Carni-
val. The other candidates were: Donna Farnham, Janelle
Highley, Betty Criteser, Jerry Sebastian, Roy Troutt, and
Herbert Crites. The gals in their beautiful formals and the
fellows in their best suits were enough to make your eyes pop
out. They didn't look like the same people we see at school
every day. The theme of the Coronation was Cinderella, and
everyone thought it was very clever!
We had our parade this afternoon with all of the class
floats and king and queen candidates. Our float looked like
one of the best, but I'm not prejudiced or anything, am I?
Donna Farnham fell off the float during the parade, but she
wasn't hurt fthat is, nothing was hurt except her dignityl.
I really worked hard in the eats stand all day, but I en-
joyed it. Cooking the food was the most fun because I got
out of school all day. Maybe I shouldn't admit this, but who
doesn't like a free day now and then!
I'm glad it's all over because now we can rest awhile, at
least until time to get up tomorrow.

LARRY SULLIVAN DECORATES ROOM NATIVITY SCENE IN LIBRARY :Z
The Christmas season is so much fun! About a week
ago we started decorating oucrooms and planning parties.
The whole school smells like cedar because almost every
room has a tree in it.
The Cantata was very pretty. We wore our choir robes
and marched down the aisle, each of us holding a small
lighted candle. It really gave me the Christmas spirit.
Then, on Saturday night, the Student Counci.had their
Christmas dance. We double dated with another couple and
had lots of fun. Mother made me a new red dress for the
occasion. The Christmas tree was standing in the middle
of the dance floor and all the presents were placed
underneath it. About ten o'clock we gathered around the
piano and sang Christmas carols, and then, before we
knew it, Santa was there to give out the gifts. I got a
huge peppermint stick and Jim got a corncob pipe. We
did enjoy the candy - that is, Jim did! He ate practi-
cally all of it when I wasn't looking.
We didn't do a thing this morning. Almost everyclass
had a party. We played records, talked, and ate. We had
doughnuts, cookies, sandwiches, candy and soda - And
Mother wondered why I didn't eat any lunch!
This afternoon we had our assembly. Carole Eberhart
read the Christmas story as it was shown on the movie
screen and we all sang Christmas carols. I think every -
one enjoyed it a great deal.
Then, at last, we were dismissed for the holidays.

We had a basketball game last night and won both games.
Everyone is proud of our team this year. They always play a
good game. The pep squad really supported them even though
it was an out-of-town game. I'm looking forward to the
tournaments - they're always so exciting! We have the region-
al tournament in Farmington this year, so I can go every
night - don't have to worry about finding a way.
I hate to see the basketball season end, but then there's
track. We always make a pretty good showing in track--maybe
we'll win a trophy this year.
I have to study for a test, write a paper, and read a book
so I'd better get busy. The semester is almost finished so
we're having tests in almost every class. Oh, how I hate
tests!! Why couldn't we have school without them? This first
semester has seemed short, and I suppose next semester will
go even faster with track, the senior trip, and graduation.
And, as always, when it's all over, I'll look back over the
year and say - Gee, it's been fun!

The Student Council has been very active this year in
both school and community. The most publicized project was
the Planned Progress Program sponsored by the Union Electric
Company. The plans from this project are to be carried out
by the community in the future and the Council sincerely
hopes that it will be successful. The Student Council does
many Nbehind-the-scenen things that most students don't know
about. Of course they know that it gives a Christmas Dance,
sponsors Christmas decorating, helps make rules, etc. but
they don't know the many seemingly small things that are

A member of the Honor Society is chosen because he has proven himself
to have four qualities--scholarship, leadership, character, and service
to his school. The first initiation of the 1953-195A school year was
held February 12. Only seniors were eligible and four people: Harriet
Boswell, Margaret Johnson, Carole Westerhold, and John Burmeister were
elected to the Society. After the ceremony, a tea, under the direction
of Mrs. McCall and the Home Ee. Department, was given in Miss Tetley's
room for the initiates, their parents and friends.
The Honor Society had a busy year. It gave a radio program, sponsored
an assembly dedicating a memorial plaque to the war dead of our school,
and presented two initiation ceremonies. The officers elected for this
year were: Gretchen Karsch, president, Larry Meyer, vice-president, and
Barbara Foster, secretary. Membership in the Honor Society is one of the
most coveted honors in our school.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB
The International Relations Club came into its
own this year and became one of the most interest-
ing clubs in school. Programs of special interest
to youth in regard to international problems were
presented at the monthly meetings, offering a
sounding ground for thoughts and ideas that no one
would have considered otherwise. The club, with
its sponsors, Mr. Bell and Mr. Chaney, has been

MEET THE M M ERS OF THE ANNUAL STAFF
The poor people you see flying around with a harried expression on thet'faces
are, you can make a safe bet, members of the annual staff. So many small jobs
come up in making an annual that everyone on the staff has to be willing to ac-
cept responsibility. This year our editor was Barbara Foster, who keeps wonder-
ing why she is turning gray. The associate editor was Pat Stover, who, besides
keeping our spirits up,also got a great deal of work done. To the photographers,
Dorris Coley, Pat Yeager, and Kathryn Carnahan goes a lot of special credit for
getting those extra scenes that really portray our school. Shirley Kropp and
Larry Sullivan can get an art award anytime in our book. Those cartoons and
illustrations were tops! The reason these annuals are here to read is that the
ad salesmen and subscription salesmen, Pat Yeager, Dorris Coley, Joy Stone, Lor-
etta McLaren, Jerry DeForest, Janis Short, Connie Osher, Barbara Burmeister,
and Barbara Miller, all practically lost their voices from asking, HWon't you
please buy an ad?U and HHave you bought your annual yet?H Joy Stone and Dorris
Coley got a little sad as they started thinking back over the Senior Class and
its doings in order to write the history, while Harriet Boswell and Connie Osher
went to the other extreme when they wrote the prophecy. What imaginations!
Talking about imagination, just take a good look at the class pages and give the
credit to Dianna Farnham, Loretta McLaren, Carole Jenkins, Sheri Sue Denman, and
Add all this together and you've got the combination that makes high school,
lasting memories, and an annual, wg hope!

Every month of every school year an edition called the Knight Life
is published. Good material, bad material, rain or shine, Knight Life
always comes out as scheduled. The staff strives to work together as
a team, believing cooperation is the

All these things combined make working on the paper rather nerve
racking but as the staff becomes a part of the wild mad, fury of meet-
ing a newspaper deadline, the feeling
of achievement well makes up for
all the trials and tribulations suffered.

One of the organizations that serves the stu-
dent body all year without much recognition is the
library staff. The staff assists the librarian in
her many duties. Without the group the library
would be open only when the librarian is able to
be in the study hall.
Miss Bird is the librarian and sponsor of the
group and they meet once out of every month on
During the Christmas holidays the staff dec-
orated the study hall in typical holiday fashion.
The following people were elected as officers
for this year: President, Mary' Lou Hoehng Vice
President, Frances Brewsterg Secretary, Rachel
Smith, and Reporter, Mary Lou Ratcliff.

Leading the way for the Halloween parade, performing at basketball
and football games, and playing for pep rallies have been a few of the
activities entered into by that organization in our school known as
the Farmington High School Band. Two special activities which were a
part of the band's program were the radio program which was presented
at Christmas and an assembly which was given February lOth.
Under the direction of Mr. Raymond Estes, this group has been an
active addition to the pep life of our school. The band has effected
a new way of organization this year. Officers were elected to govern
the group and special officers were appointed to care for the uniforms
and other business. Private instruction was given during the students'
free time. The band has made a lot of progress during the past year
and looks forward to next year with much enthusiasm.
The band officers as
they meet to talk
over the business
and activities of
Practice makes per-
fect--at least these
boys hope so.

Here's a hard working organization made up of the yeygiest girls in F.H.S, if you want
proof of this, just walk down the apstairs hall some Tuesday aTter school when they're
The Pep Squai's purpose is to spread good sportsmanship among schools and also to pub-
licize the games. They do all this wi5h the many pep meetings and assemblies they plan,
supporting their team at games, and of course, planning the ever popular Snake Dance. ln
order to raise money for transportation to the games, the girls held a Spaghetti Supper
and cleared 3137.
The Knight Howlers Qthat's their namel is open to all girls in F.H.S. The club is or-
ganized under a constitution and this year elected Harriet Boswell as president and Dianna
Farnham as secretary. The sponsors are Miss Halter and Mr. Miller who deserve a lot of
special credit for putting up with the girls on the busses.
What do you say? Let's give fifteen for the Pep Squadl

In the game of football, the Knights again proved to be outstanding. Maybe not in
the won and lost column, but on the field our team played hard and clean and spread
the fine sportsmanship reputation of F. H. S. one step further.
Each game was played with the fullest ability each member could exert. Coaches
Lingle and Schuster not only found the weaknesses of this year's team, as a method of
improving those of the future, but gave that added game play to many young stars of
Much praise should go to: the graduating players of this year for the good foot-
ball they demonstrated before the local fans and followers, the coaches who worked so
hard to condition and secure the best athletes to perform, and you, the supporters,
backbone of all high school activities.
Here's wishing next year's squad the greatest of success and thanks to the men who
carried the black and gold to the gridiron last season.

Climaxing the regular schedule of play with the
Class HAH Regional Tournament in Farmington, our
basketball team closed another good season of the
Finishing in third place at the Desloge Invita-
tional Tourney, the Knights held their own against
the more outstanding teams of the local area.
Using the characteristics that have left an in-
delible mark with the Knights, they played one ex-

The Volleyball Team of 1953 had a very successful season. The A
Team lost only one scheduled game and one tournament game. Both losses
were to the same team. The B Team also lost only two games. This
sounds very promising for the future.
The girls displayed a wonderful fighting spirit whether they were
winning or losing. The other quality that was partly responsible for
their successful season was their ability to keep calm under pressure.
If the future teams will carry on these traditional qualities,
success is assured. But remember--a successful season does not always
mean winning all the games.
Members of the A Team were: Phyllis Haile, Shirley Kropp, Shirley
Klepzig, Betsy Lynch, Margaret Johnson, Joan Stroud, Connie Osher, and
Carole Eberhart. Members of the B Team were: E ma Lee Davis, Jean
Womack, Louise Redmond, Pat Womack, Wilma Archambo, Marilyn Gordon,

Listen to that rain, Ma. Just sitting here, rocking, listening to that
rain on the roof really brings back memories. Just can't help thinking about
the things I did when I was just a young boy ........ remember those great
times we had in high school, Ma? Those were really the days! Not a care in the
world ...... What a class we had! .... seems as though there were about a
hundred of us scared freshmen ........... Believe Andy Kono was elected
president of the class that year. That's not so hard to remember since he was
elected president all four years. What a guy he was! .... Yeah that's right,
Ma, Carole Eberhart was vice-president, the only girl officer that year, and
Marshall Mell was secretary, and one of those twins, Bill Zieba, was treasurer.
Yes sir, Miss Rickus, Mrs. Nelson, and Mr. Lingle were our sponsors that
year. I remember the day we elected our first Student Council representatives.
We really thought we were important. I remember those three kids, Hummmmm--oh
yeah, Larry Meyer, Carole Eberhart, and Andy Kono really did a great job letting
everybody know how we UFreshiesN felt about things .... Ma, remember that dance
the seniors gave for us? First dance we'd ever been to. I think I must have
stepped all over your feet that night ...... We were a little smarter about
things like that when we gave our dance for the seniors at the end of the year
Hmmmmm that was the year we put up Shirley Klepzig and Chuck Cozean for carnival
king and queen ...... Seems to me that Sylvia Matthews served as cheerleader
that year and was reelected for the next year. . .Yep, believe you're right, Ma,
Carole Eberhart was the only freshman to receive a merit award. . . Yes sir, and
Larry Meyer and Phyllis Haile were selected as the most courteous boy and girl
in the class.
Yep, then we were sophomores, big as anything Cso we thoughtj. . . believe
we elected that home economics teacher, Miss Rose, and. . oh - that physical ed.
teacher, Mr. Schuster, as our sponsors ..... Andy Kono was elected president
again that year, and Jim Woods Cremember we used to call him HWoodyH?D was
elected vice-president. Let's see ....... Marshall Mell was secretary that
year, and I'll never forget Harriet Boswell, the treasurer, always trying to get
us to pay our dues! .... Then there was the carnival, yeah, Ma, I believe the
sophomores did put up John Burmeister and Joyce Brubaker .... and if I remem-
ber right, Larry Meyer went on the Sophomore Pilgrimage that year. You know, I
kinda' believe he was on the Student Council again with Carole Eberhart and Andy
Kono .... Oh yes, Shirley Kropp, Barbara Foster, and Carole Eberhart received
merit awards that year too ........ And how could we forget our dance the
HBunny Hopn .... What a time we had!
And you know, Ma, we were juniors before we ever realized it! .......
That was the year we had Miss Bird and Miss Halter for sponsors. They really had
a hard job trying to control that upperclassman spirit! ..... That Andy Kono
did a good job again that year as president. Chuck Cozean was elected vice-
president ...... and I believe Harriet Boswell was the secretary and Carole
Eberhart was treasurer. She had a rough job handling all that money ......
Hey, Ma, remember that junior stand we ran at the games to get money toward our
senior trip? We sold those artificial flowers for the trip too ....... and
remember the junior play? . . . Believe it was called HTwexteenH ..... . . .
You know,I still can't help but brag a little when I think how we put Bill Zieba
and Carole Eberhart in as Carnival King and Queen. That class really worked . .
It seems to me that Andy Kono, Cwhat a boy he was! D was vice-president of the
Student Body, and if I remember right, that was the year Phyllis Haile, Paul
Byrd, and Chuck Cozean were on the Student Council ........ Chuck Cozean,
Larry Meyer, and John Burmeister went to Boy's State that year too. Yep, Ma,
Phyllis Haile was the lucky girl to go to Girl's State ...... Can't seem to
remember the merit award winners that year ....... but it seems to me that
Carole Eberhart and Shirley Kropp received them again, and I believe Chuck
Cozean and Phyllis Haile got their names added to the list ........ Connie
Osher did a great job that year as cheerleader, she really had the pep .... .
Yeah, those first Honor Society members create a lasting memory. Seems as if
Carole Eberhart, Dorris Coley, Chuck Cozean, Andy Kono, Gretchen Karsch, Larry
Meyer, and Barbara Foster still live up to that honor, even though times have
changed a lot.
Our Senior year was here before we realized it ...... I remember how we
felt all mixed up, proud to be the oldest ..... but kinda' sad it was our last
year. Miss Rickus, Mr. Wright, and Miss Halter were excellent sponsors .....
I'm a little rusty when it comes to remembering all this but I believe Andy Kono
was president again, Larry Meyer was vice-President .... Marshall Mell was back
again as secretary and Carole Eberhart was treasurer ........ Yes sir, Ma,
I'll never forget our history-making experience when our carnival king and queen
won for two years straight ........ Harriet Boswell and Don Neavill were
the candidates our senior year .... That was the year that Joan Sebastian was
cheerleader ...... Remember when we sold magazines and Christmas cards and
pencils? ..... We never would give up on the senior trip. Hey, remember we
got an extra break when we got a percentage of the proceeds from those student
pictures ........... Ma, remember when we finally went on that senior
trip? . . .That alone was worth all we had worked for and ever hoped to achieve.
Then, by golly, Ma, it was all over ..... Remember when they played taps and
lowered our flag of 'EL ...... Yep - Leaving behind those senior doors . ..
underclassmen .... Yeah, Ma, it was kinda' sad .... graduation, diplomas,
honors, and a big challenge as we went out in life ,,,,,,,, guess we can
only reminisce now. . . But you know, Ma, you and I have kept a lot of F. H. S.
here with us in memories ...... Thinking about those good times, friends,
classes, teachers ...... I know we'll never forget F. H. S. and all it meant
Q f f
The following are letters received by the Committee Chairman in reply to notices sent to the
195A graduates of Farmington High School in regard to a Class Reunion to be held in the spring
Washington D. C.
February 8, l963
So glad to receive your letter. I notified
everyone in the Capitolabout the reunion. It's
about time we're all getting together again.
It might be hard for Bill Tessereau, star pro-
fessional basketball player,to make it because
he is touring the nation urging students to
keep their scholastic standing high. Ron
Sutton has just received a special award from
the President for his fast, effective, and
energetic work in the investigation of the Man
from Mars found last month near Washington.
His investigations proved the Man to be none
other than Floyd Lawson, test pilot for the
new square saucers. You've probably heard
about Senator James W. Ogle. That speech he
made entitled HWhat School Has Done to Me and
What I Have Done to Schoolu has certainly
brought him up the ladder to fame. By the way,
Shirley Cunningham, his number one secretary,
will be able to come if James gives her per-
mission. Do you know Joyce Simpson is chief
of the Women's Navy Division? Her main pro-
blem now is learning to swim. Bob Stone, a
member of the State Department, has just been
sent on a secret mission to Moroccog but he
hopes to get back to the States in time to
attend the reunion. Margaret Johnson, rec-
reational director of the Congressmen's Wives
CluQ.is teaching her pupils the art of playing
volleyball. Chuck Cozean, voted by our class
most likely to succeed, is now working as head
janitor of the Smithsonian Institute. He is
happy in his work for he is close to his wife,
the former Carole Eberhart, trusted feather
cleaner of the Stuffed Birds Division. As for
myself, I've realized my life long ambition to
be in politics. I am the only girl messenger-
carrier in the Senate. See you soon.
New York, New York
February lO, 1963
Everyone here in New York is certainly
pleased with the idea of a class reunion.
Leonia Moore and Mary Lou Hoehn, who own the
famous La Parrie Hair Styling Shop, are now
working to perfect the women's crew cut. You
remember Betsy Lynch don't you? She is seen on
all the billboards of New York advertising
Krispy Krunchy Krackies. Jim Bollinger plans
to take off work for the reunion. He has been
cleaning the outside of the Statue of Liberty
for the last four years. You've heard of Don
Neaville, of course, and his No. l band of the
land. Well, besides being known for his
clarinet and band, he is also known as New
York's most famous playboy. Bill Anderson has
just returned to the Metropolitan Opera Comf
pany after being in London where he did a Com-
mand Performance for the Queen. Critics all
over London praised his golden tenor voice.
Are the children in Farmington using the Bloom
History Book? Shirley Bloom married New York's
leading historian and became so engrossed in
his work, she decided to edit her own edition.
I couldn't get in touch with John Burmeister.
His secretary said he was in Egypt trying to
construct a building more substantial than the
pyramids. Larry and I are operating the Star
Light Night Club here in New York. Our main
attraction is a chorus line composed of our
seven daughters. So long for now.
Shirley Kropp Sullivan
February ll, 1963
I've been able to get in touch with almost
everyone on the coast. It's really hard to
understand how our class got so strung out. Do
you know that Don Zieba is running a date bur-
eau in Los Angeles? To be sure everything is
proper, he personally chaperones every date.
You've heard about Dolores Straughan, I guess.
She has taken Sophie Tucker's place and is now
billed as HRed Hot Mama the Second.H I was
really surprised to find out that Bob and Bill
Zieba are running a private detective agency
in San Francisco and are doing very well. They
say the secret of their success is HWe confuse
the criminal.n Bud White makes his home in
Africa and is the chief explorer for the East
Africa Big Game Company. His company's motto
is HHelp us bring him back alive.H Connie
Osher is married now, but boy does she have
troubles. It seems she uses the baseball dia-
mond theory when changing Junior's diapers and
she can't figure outwhich corner is home plate
and which is the pitcher's mound. I turned on
the T.V. the other night and whom do you think
I saw? Barbara Fosterwas subbing for Liberace.
Hollywood is really a swell place to live.
Besides the wonderful climate we have lots of
beautiful women here. I am quite happy in my
job as Marilyn Monroe's chauffeur.
February l2, l963
It takes quite awhile for the mail to get
up here because these dog sleds are so slow. I
suppose almost everyone up here can get back
for the reunion. You should see our super
highway! Three dog sleds at a time can travel
on it. Donna Lewis is up here in Alaska to
gain experience as an Army nurse but she isn't
getting much experience as a nurse because she
has been devoting too much time toone patient,
a soldier from Tennessee. Incidentally, Norma
Cook has been marooned on an iceberg
Arctic Ocean for two days. She's been trying
to hook a ride with Admiral Robert Byrd who is
in charge of the Navy Forces here. The igloos
all come installed with modern conveniences
now because Jerry Chatman has taken over the
plumbing. Well, my ink is freezing so I must
close for now. I am becoming famous up here
for my trained seals. I train them for zoos
all over the world. Until I see you!
Terre Haute, Indiana
February l3, 1963
Sure was swell to hear from you. Everyone
here in Indiana plans to come back to Missouri
for the reunion. I guess Jim Woods will get
home in time from the army. Folks say he wrote
his wife he was wounded in battle, but really
he cut his finger while peeling potatoes. Re-
member Carole Westerhold? She finally became
the National Twirling Champion, and now that
she is, Norman Black does nothing all day long
but shine her batons. I had a hard time trying
to get in touch with Joy Stone. You know she
started out in Social Work, but she took her
job so seriously, she ended up in the County
Poor House. If we buy her dinner for her, she
has agreed to come. John Ratliff has recovered
enough to attend the reunion. He says the
next time he attempts to go over Niagra Falls,
he'll do it in a stronger barrel. Harold
Miller is one of the most famous horse owners
in Indiana. He has made millions with his
thoroughbred stallion, Water-Bread,named after
Seabiscuit. Well, I'd better close for now
and wash the kids for supper. You know my
husband is one of those farmers who wants the
house to be as neat as a pin., We'll be at the
reunion early if Homer can get someone to feed
the pigs. Be seeing you.
February IL, 1963
Boy, I sure was plum glad to get your let-
ter. It's a right good idea to have this re-
union. I've notified everyone out here 'cause
we kind of keep in touch with each other. You
know Shirley Klepzig is president of the State
Cattlemen's Association here, but she thinks
she can get away for awhile. Anna Ruth Chilton
married an oil heir, and she said she just
couldn't come unless she could bring herFrench
poodle. By the way, I saw Oscar Govro last
week as he passed through town with thecircus.
He was billed as the most daring fire-eater of
our famous singing
all time. Bob Chilton,
cowboy, is making a new
entitled HHortense, I Love You.N My dude ranch
has been keeping me pretty busy,but nothin' is
keepin' me from that reunion.
St. Louis, Missouri
February 15, 1963
I've taken care of my end of the reunion.
Everyone here will come, I believe. Andy Kono
is very busy with the executive part of his
bubble gum factory. What a blow! Phyllis
Haile, now Mrs. Wayne Schurter,was the hardest
person to get in touch with because her social
life keeps her very busy. Her husband just
wrote a book on HThe Technical Way to Reach
The Moonn and now she is well supplied with
diamonds, minks, and cadillacs. I saw Rachel
Smith in St. Louis when she stopped over for
the night. She is driving a trailer truck for
the East Texas Motor Freight. Incidentally, I
saw Dayle Barnes in the city when he came up
to buy test tubes for his experimental work in
nuclear atomic energy at the secret government
testing grounds. He was wearing dark glasses
and built-in-shoulders, but I recognized him
anyway. Did you know that Pat Windsor has just
returned to St. Louis from South America where
he was doing color sketches of the birds. His
work will be on display in the St. Louis Art
Museum all this week. Well, business is call-
ing me. You know I own my own chain of tooth-
I, F.. '
- - --
February l6, l963
Aloha! Think of hearing from you after all
these years. I just can't wait to see all
those familiar faces at the reunion. The trop-
ical climate here is super. ,Dorris Coley and
her husband have been doing deep sea fishing
from their yacht. You know she always had an
inferiority complex about her heavy weight so
when she caught a swordfish that weighed lO
lbs. less than she did, she threw him back.
Dorris McClaskey's husband is stationed here.
Since he is a four-star general, she is kept
very busy entertaining the five-star generals.
Do you know Donald Hibbits is running a
Cadallac Company down here. His firm's slogan
is NBuy one of our Cadallacs with a Ford
motor.n Thomas Huie is down here vacationing
after completing his latest motion picture
HToo Many Loves Have I.N Naomi Burch and her
husband are doing sky-writing in Hawaiian.
They both seem to be a little dizzy lately.
George Jones practices his water skiing every
day. No wonder he is water ski champion of the
Americas. Pat Thurman and Marilyn Wiley have
been taking hula lessons from the natives so
they can come back to Farmington and open up
their own dance studio. I've made quite a
success of making leis for the visitors to the
Islands. See you in Farmington.
February l9, 1963
Hi you all! My, was I surprised to get your
letter. Ever last one of us down here will be
coming to the reunion, I reckon. That is un-
less Marcel Quesnel decides to stay up on the
flag pole for another month. He is on strike
because his wife insists that he walk the cat
every night. Jo Ann Sebastian has fitted into
the pattern of Southern living just fine.
She's one of the happiest housewives in town.
Betty June Parker has just quit her job as
head nurse at the City Hospital to marry a
former patient. She plans to devote all her
time in helping her husband in his career as
State Senator. Pat Windsor has just returned
here after touring Africa studying
niques of Tarzan. I think I smell my
burning so I must close for now. I
a Southern mansion here and make my
opening it to tourists in the summer.
February 28, 1963
Everyone will be able to come to the reun-
ion according to your letters. The local group
of '5A has made all the plans. Gretchen Karsh
has just received her Doctor's Degree from
Columbia and is now working as an exchange
teacher between Knob Lick and Doe Run. Larry
Meyer will be here over the weekend of the re-
union, but he'll be expected to return to New
York to broadcast the World's Marble Tourna-
ment. Everyone in Farmington was terribly ex-
cited when Pauline Harrington found gold on
her farm. Shirley Haynes and Bernice Marshall
have opened up an amusement park on the out-
skirts of town. It's certainly a popular place
with the young crowd. Paul Byrd is the game
warden for the surrounding area. He won't be
able to sit down for awhile though because he
was mistaken for game. Norman Marshall has
just built a new T.V. station here and plans
to use local talent in all his shows. Frances
Brewster started out as Farmington's Home Ec.
teacher and liked her job so well she decided
to go into homemaking on her own. Pat Yeager
has taken over the band department at school,
and her band is considered the best marching
band in the state. When asked how this was
possible Miss Yeager replied, UIt all comes
from my own love of marching.N As for me, I'm
just a plain old dirt farmer, but I raise
prize geraniums. It will be wonderful to see
all our old friends again. I'll be looking
forward to seeing you.

Well - here 'tis the end of my sophomore year. Last Sept-
ember when I come up here from the Ozarks to get some learn-
in', I never thought I wuz gonna have this much fun. The
first thing they asked me wuz if I had my books. I telled
them why shore, me Ma wouldn't send me up here without no
books. I shore wuz dumbfounded when them there teachers said
books dated as late as l9OO were out-dated. I ain't goin' to
tell ya how proud I was of that purty Janelle Highley and
King and Queen
school had the
that cute Roy Troutt as our candidates fer
'cause I ain't one fer bragging. That thar
purtiest program ya ever seen at the end of their carnival.
It was a real honest to goodness Coronation!
We had some purty smart young'uns that were our class
officers. They were Richard Kono, president, Phil Boyd,
vice-presidentgFrances Shirrell,secretary3 Kathryn Carnahan,
treasurer, Mary Mackley, parliamentariang and Roy Troutt,
Sgt.-at-Arms. Miss Corken and Mr. Estes were our sponsors
and they were really swell. we had some of the best Student
Council members there ever wuz. They were Mary Lee Womack,
Edith Walker, and Richard Kono. I shore wuz mighty proud of
them sophomore gals on the volleyball team and them there
sophomore fellers on the football, basketball, and track
Ever 55 minutes chimes, or something that sounded like
Bossie's cow bell, would ring. Them there kids would jump up
and run into them halls like a herd stampeding. Shore was a
One time our class held a shindig in that buildin' called
a gym. They gave this here shindig a purty name and called
it a dance. Boy, let me tell ya us young'uns really had
us a time!
Well - guess I better go home and help Ma and Pa do them
chores so we can go to that thar graduation tonight.

Well, here we are,wandering around the halls of the Farm-
ington High School. You all stare at us while we slam our
locker doors and stumble to our next hour class.
We suppose you have gone past our door and stopped--,
startled--,to see a quiet group of green freshmen being con-
ducted by just a student. Believe it or not, it's our class
president, Tommy Swink. Look there! Assisting him is our
vice-president, Robin Cozean. The girl taking notes is Carol
Jenkins. Oh, boy! Look who is getting all of our money--,
it's Grace Kono, the treasurer. Whoops! Crash! Bang!
There goes someone being thrown out by our Sergeant-at Arms,
We were very proud of our Freshman King, Herbert Crites
and Queen, Betty Criteser. We enjoyed showing them off.
See those Hwheatie eatin'U kids? Well, they are our
volleyball girls: Janis Short, Grace Kono, Patsy Tessereau,
Phyllis Belken, Jean Womack and Pat Womack. Our basketball
boys are Danny Giessing, Ira Eaton, Wayne Sherrill, Billy
Hill, Scott Sutterfield, George Fraser, and Larry Kropp.
Also on the football team we have Jerry Pigg, Ira Click,
Wendell Hickus, Orley Whitner, Jim Nickelson, Ward Overall,
and Charles Belken.
Oh! What's all that noise? Why it's our Senior High
cheerleader, Patty Mackley, and our Junior High School lead-
er, Patsy Tessereau, practicing their yells.
At last we had our chance to see all of the High School
by looking down over the audience when we gave our freshman
Please excuse us for stepping on your toes at the senior
dance given for us freshmen. We enjoyed it very much and
maybe next year when we step on toes, we won't step as hard.
As we sit and wait for our repongcards from our sponsors-
Mrs. McCall and Mr. Riggs, we wonder if we will have such
a struggle next year. Boy, we hope not!!! We take much
pity on the freshmen next year.
