We, the Class of '49, dedicate this Rollcall to the students of
Farmington High School, who are both the actors and the
spectators of our school drama.

Farmington, Mich., June I7-
ln a recent interview exclusive with this staff, the renowned stage family, Class of '49, ably backed
by their technical advisers, described their four-year struggle for stardom.
The first production in 1945 featured Bill Goers, president, Dick Martindale, vice-president, and
June Hunt, secretary-treasurer. The boys of the family, billed as the Falcon Frosh, proved themselves
worthy of their supporting roles by trouncing the opposition to win most of their football games. The
final show of the season was the Farewell Dance, which received the Critics' Award for '45-46.
In preparation for their future conquests the group spent the '46-47 months in dramatic schools under
the direction of Fred McLean, president, Betsy Udell, vice-president, and Dorothy Cutter, secretary-
Managed by Velma Goers, president, Fred Allen, vice-president, Dick Martindale, secretary, and
John Buck, treasurer, the troupe benefited by their two years' previous experience when they played in
several outstanding hits of the '47-48 season. Climaxing weeks of planning, they presented their first
really big performance, the J-Hop, "Underwater Fantasy," on December 6. The Carnival, a circus barkers'
heyday, featuring the Sweetheart of F.H.S., was staged on April IO. On May 15 they satisfactorily
carried out their greatest undertaking, the Junior-Senior Banquet. Actors receiving special honors were
Velma Goers, Girls' State, Dick Martindale, Fred McLean, Dick Wheeler, Boys' State, Fred McLean, Out-
standing Athlete of the Year, and Sue Sugden, recognition for exceptional work done in the Scholastic
In the fall of T948 the more daring members appeared in a rollicking comedy, "Brother Goose," on
November 20 before a full house. For recreation between shows the boys who had not joined the
Athletic Union played some of their directors in a rip-roaring Senior-Men Faculty basketball game. The
proceeds were donated to the hard-working Trip Club. One of the highlights of the spring period was
the Senior Prom on April 30. The property men and stage hands achieved almost incredible South Sea
Island atmosphere. During the weekend of June fourth, the family went on a cruise to Mackinac Island
before returning for the finale. Commencement Week began on June 'IO with Swing-Out, when the
group first wore quite different costumes, blue caps and gowns. This was followed by the Baccalaureate
Service on June 'I2 in the F.H.S. Auditorium. On June I6, in the last scene of the last act, the Class of
'49 received their individual certificates of merit.
This famous cast, after these present engagements, will no longer act as a unit of eighty-two. Each
player will try for a part in some drama particularly suited to his own interests and ability.

ll liltllllllllil I THE SPllTllliHl
The curtain arose on a typical scene-
A senior rushing to his junior queen.
His heart was happy and filled with glee,
For today a graduate he would be.
"Today" was June 16-a day of cheers,
Of laughing and singing, and maybe of tears.
The time was eight-with dusk coming on,
And deep in his heart there was born a great song.
First place: the gym, second: Home Ec.
Went Jake with a smile and no sign of regret.
He donned a blue cap-with a tassel hung low,
A gown to match in color just so.
His heart was pounding, his knees gave a knock,
He trembled as though suffering electrical shock.
With nerves on edge and eyes all wet,
He joined the others in the hall where they met.
Friends were seated, the lights were all dim,
There wasn't a sound all over the gym.
The music began more slowly than slow,
At first he couldn't move-his legs shook so.
The lines were so even, the steps all in time,
He felt like a poet composing a rhyme.
Up to the center, then turn to the right,
Find your seat and just sit tight.
Who was speaking from up on the stage?
His curiosity almost turned to a rage.
"Turn and look!" said conscience to Jake,
"No, just sit still-for Heaven's sake."
A student was speaking, with voice toned high,
On subjects of interest to seniors nigh.
The notes rang clear, the words were distinct,
Jake sat on his seat like a statued sphinx.
Then came the applause, it filled the whole gym.
He thought surely it was the moment for him
To get on his feet, off that hard seat,
And march across stage his fate to meet.
Surely enough he had figured right!
It was time for him to show his might.
He stepped from the wings at just the right time
To hear his name called, which made him feel fine.
He walked across stage with a strut in his stride
And received a diploma and a sense of pride.
No longer a senior was Jake now,
For this spot a junior would stand and bow,
But memories are left of that happy date
When Jake, a senior, became a graduate.

D. A. R. Honors
For the eighth consecutive year the Three Flags Chapter of
the Daughters of the American Revolution has sponsored the Good
Citizenship Pilgrimage Contest among senior girls.
Lore was elected by her classmates as the 1949 representa-
tive for Farmington High School because they believed she
possessed to an outstanding degree the qualifications specified by
the national organization: loyalty, patriotism, leadership, and
Lore is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Leidig, 28955
Orchard Lake Road.
She plans to enter the University of Michigan in the fall of
1949, where she will be enrolled in the College of Business Ad-
Keith .Iohnson Memorial Award
Presented by the Class of 1940 in memory of their class-
mate, Keith Gordon Johnson, the Keith Johnson Memorial plaque
commends that boy or that girl in the graduating class who most
closely approaches the type of citizenship which Keith always
practiced. He was known for cooperation, dependability, initia-
tive, leadership, promptness, honesty, giving the other fellow 'his
due', courtesy, clean habits, stability, and scholarship.
By class and faculty vote the name of Velma Goers, daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Goers, 22720 Brookdale, will be in-
scribed on the bronze plate for 1949.

The Folconaires, consisting of twelve members chosen for their musical ability from
the glee clubs, was formed in the tall of 1948 by Mr. J. W. Henderson. Besides joining
the glee clubs on special occasions, they sang over the radio twice and frequently
provided music for P.T.A. meetings.
Reorganized in September 1948, the Mixed Chorus now includes seventy-six boys
and girls in its membership. Although no credit is earned, the club meets two days a
week during school hours and one evening. Its activities have been similar to those
of the other vocal music groups.
