Hi! Say, I was just rereading my diary--living over fun we had in
high school and--gosh! you know we did a lot!
There was the Get Acquainted Dance on September 17. Were those Freshmen
shy! They certainly have changed.
Did you go to the night football game at Birmingham, September 26?
That was a swell game-- close. We won 12-7. The fellows had a good season,
except Tom Quisenberry, who broke his knee.
Where did you ever find that costume you wore to the Glee Clubs'
Masquerade Dance October 25? Black Sambo-H-pretty sharp.
I read Booth Tarkington's NSeventeenn after I saw the Seniors dramatize
it November 21. All through it I couldn't help visualizing Phyllis Bunge
as Willie's NBaby-Talk Ladyn and Tom Taggart as the irritated host,
J-Hop decorations CDecember 61 were so realistic that, every time we
spoke, our words bubbled out.
What a time we had at the New Year's Eve Dance, especially while the
balloons were lowered!
And next-M-we sweat and slaved over our mid-year exams on January 20
and 21. That's written in my diary in big black letters because I felt I
was doomed, but, when I got my card, I wasn't so doomed as I had thought
Maybe life isn't so rugged after all. No, in fact, I think now it's rather
sweet after that Valentine Valse on February l4. The Class of '50 certainly
knows how to entertain.
The Student Council did a fine job with their party also. The Inter-
Lakes Student Council put on the Inter-Lakes Leap February 28. Milford,
Keego Harbor, Walled Lake, and Northville came to our gym for a great time
dancing to the music of Les Shank and his orchestra.
The most exciting game of the basketball season was ours with St. Mary'
of Orchard Lake in the tournaments held in our gym March 4, 5, 6. We lost
Q26-285, but the game was tied right up to the last split second of play.
I can still remember how grand those Seniors looked as they were
initiated into the National Honor Society. I think everybody at that
assembly was impressed with the dignity and seriousness of the ceremony.
Written down here several times are incidents when the Yearbook staff
'made moneyn. The best one was the Talent Show on March l3. Jim Martin,
who planned the show, kept up a steady mike chatter as M.C. Eileene
Whitehead accompanied most of the kids. Not many people were aware of just
how much talent we had in Farmington until then. You should have seen
Elbridge Dunckel as Madame Chaune de Fraune. He was a lusty Carmen all
Among other unusual things that we had this year was a Carnival April
lO, directed by the Juniors. It was the first one in a couple of years, but
it was certainly worthwhile. That came only a week before the Senior Prom.
Timothy, you and the other fellows looked so smooth in your tuxes. We girls
looked pretty nice, too, I'd say.
Those Juniors are a swell bunch. They went all out to give us a wonder-
ful banquet in May.
Just as the Freshmen told us goodbye at the Aloha Dance, I must close
for now, but not before I include Mom's invitation for you and your family
to come to any of the commencement activities you can: Swing-Out on June 43
Baccalaureate on the following Sunday eveningg and the big day--Graduation
-- Thursday, June IO.
Come when you can.
