We, the Class of 1954, are proud to dedicate this mnual to
a teacher who has for the past seven years served as fifth and
sixth grade teacher in our Fernald Consolidated School. We are
the first class to graduate who have benefited from the loving
guidance of this grand person. It is with great pleasure that
we dedicate the 1954 "Echo" to Mrs. l-ouella Wendell.
Remember those thrilling baseball games,
All the slim-hipped dazz'ling damesl
Remember those parties, "Wow" how late
Remember how nice our very First date.
Remember the humor in study nall,
Our wonderful fast break in basketball.
Remember themes, those office iaunts,
All the girls that we did taunt.
What we thought of teachers, too,
What they did to me and you.
Remember our stirring picture day,
Getting out ofstudy hall my ol' way.
Remember the solo's, chorus'es, bancl,
We were the best in all the land.
Remember the stories, cakes, and gals,
All the guys we had as pals.
Remember our speeches and our plays,
ln our ne'er forgotten high-school days.
Remember algebra, our dear prof. Don,
With hair the color of a new bom Fawn.
Remember bus rides, festivals, shows,
Why our dear grades didn't 'glow'.
Remember Christmas, New Year's Eve,
What happy times, We hate to leave.
Wnen school bells ring out every fall,
Yes, l'll remember Fernald best of all.

September 1, 1941, begcn a new era or unrorgerrawe wwe- .e....e. for the teachers in the Fernald
Public School. On that day fourteen cngels with aug halos slippinglentered the doors to the future af
our still young lives. We were greeted by Miss De Vries, who was to guide us through our kinder-
garten year. This group consisted af: Herman Corbin, James Crosser, Howard Myers, Wyvanna Davis,
Gladys Fincham, Mariorie Fish, Carolyn Gilreath, Wanda lenn Mooers, Darlyne Myer, Donald
Oxley, Esther Peterson, l-ois Ann Picht, Mary l.au Wise, and laretta Woods. later in the yearwe
were ioined by Gerald Hitchings and Gerald Klonglan. During the year Mariorie Fish, Vlkmda Lenn
Nooers, and Donald Oxley dropped out.
The first day of our first grade year found twelve of last year's class back. Loretta Woods had
decided she liked the grade behind better so she stayed back to continue an with them. Trudy
Christensen came in November. Trudy didn't stay with us very long, two days to be exact. Dur-
ing this year Howard Myers and Ether Peterson left. .brry Springer also entered our class this year
from the class just ahead of us. He also left us at the beginning of the second semester.
Nine loyal students came back for their second grade to be greeted by Miss Picht. Herman
Corbin stayed back to fain the class behind us. At the beginning of this year we were ioined by:
Albert Dem Barton, Louise Gull, Marilyn Black, Kelly Haws, md Neoma Hagen, md at the
end of this year we found ourselves minus: Albert Barton, Wyvanna Davis, Carolyn Gilreath,
md Louise Gull, who had left to gain their schooling elsewhere.
Again under Miss Picht's guiding hand we started our third year in school to find that Marilyn
Griffith had ioined us from the class ahead. Gerald Hitchings, Neoma Hagen, md James Crosser
left for greener pastures during the year. Kelly Haws also left because he had his eye an a girl
in a lower grade md wanted to stay behind, lee Dadismm 'md lbsalee Corbin entered our class in
March. We ended up that year with Marilyn Black, Gladys Fincham, Gerald Klonglan, Darlyne
Nyers, Lois Ann Picht, Nlary Lou Wise, fvhrilyn Griffith, Lee Dadismm, md Rasalee Qarbin.
This year the class was looking forward to traveling upstairs to their fourth grade but since
they took kindergarten out, we had fourth grade in the same room as we were to have left, md
thus had Miss Picht as teacher for the third year in a row. Gary Sutherlmd and Shirley Breezley
moved into the community and thus added two pupils to our class.
ln 1946 we found our legs nimble enough to climb the stairs md spend the fifth grade year
mder the tutorage of Mrs. Foote. The class remained the some except that Bob Severson ioined us.
Gary Sutherlmd also left this year to find his education elsewhere.
Sixth grade found the class increased with the addition of Bonnie Gerlach, Marilyn McNatton,
Nblvin Mundell, Charles See, Mary lee Sodders, and Dem Sodders. Bob Seversan decided that
he liked Nevada better so he moved to attend school there. Ms. Vtbndell was our teacher.
h seventh we found that Bonnie Gerlach, Shirley Breezley, md Nblvin Mundell had left to
seek their education in other schools, but thirteen of us walked up the other stairs to get a back-
gomd in Bmglish md arithmetic that we will never forget. Mich was gained mder the teaching
of M. Talbott. At the start of the second semester we lost Charles See, Dean Sodders, and hkmry
l-ee Sodders. However, Lelmd Riley, Leslie Riley, and Donald Bums came to our doorstep to
even up the number of students in our class.
Lelmd md Leslie Riley didn't come back to start eighth gade with us md Donald Bums had
decided to take seventh grade over again. Mrs. Talbott had the following ten pupils that year:
Marilyn Black, Rosalee Corbin, Lee Dadismcn, Gladys Fincham, Marilyn Griffith, Gerald Klonglan
Marilyn McNatton, Darlyne Myers, Lois Ann Picht, md Mary Lou Wise.
ln the fall of 1950 we entered the doors of the high school building at F. H. S. A group of
very green freshmen, after suffering through initiation so willingly administered by our beloved
upper-classmen, became full-fledged high school students. Ray O. Forbes was our superintendent,
Ms. Forbes our music instructor, Mr. Martin our coach, and Mrs. Chitty was in charge of home
ec. Darlyne Myers had moved to State Center during the summer md Rosalee Corbin had decided
that four more years were iust too many. Kathryn Kendall ioined us at the beginning of the year md
Gerald Hitchings re-entered at t'he beginning ofthe second semester of this, our, freshman year.
Nary Lee Sodders cane in for a short stay of about twelve weeks.
The same ten cane back to start our sophomore year, to beincreased in February by Forrest
Petrus. With the exception of Mrs. Chitty our whole faculty was changed. This year Mr. Don
Begg was our superintendent, Mr. Miller our coach md Ms. Miller was in charge of music.
Vtb ended the year with the following roll: Nurilyn Black, Lee Dadisman, Gladys Fincham,
Marilyn Griffith, Gerald Hitchings, Kathryn Kendall, Gerald Klonglm, Marilyn McNatton,
Lois Am Picht, Mary Lou Wise, and Forrest Petrus. The biggest feature of this year was in itlation
of the freshmen who were even greener than we had been.
During the summer Kathryn Kendall moved to Mcfherson, Kmscs, and Nhrilyn Griffith left
is to change her schooling from homework to housework. We started out our iunior year by work-
ing extremely hard on our .kmior Clms Play, "Quit Your Kiddin"'. The rest of the yea' was spent
planning the Junior-Senior Banquet which was held at Lloyd's at Marshalltown. Our clcssmember-
ship was changed by the addition of Frmcis Miller from Nevada and the substraction of Forrest
Petrus to Milford. Ms. Cummings came to join the high school teaching staff to teach busines
while the rest of the faculty remained the same.
The fall of 1953 found us at the final step of our golden school days. Nr. Begg retumed as
superintendent, as did Mr. Miller as coach, Ms. Miller as music teacher, and Ms. Cumming as
business teacher. Among the numerous events of our senior year were: Picture Day in Ames, Skip
Day in Des Moines, a lovely banquet at the Airport in Des Moines, md our class play "Out of the
Mist". Francis Miller moved during the summer of '53, so there were eight of us to receive our
diplomas on May 17, 1954. lncluded in this number were three girls who had started together cmd
gone to school at Fernald for thirteen years. They were Lois Ann Picht, Mary Lou Wise, and Gladys
Fincham. The other five were Gerald Klonglan, Gerald Hitchings, Lee Dadismm, Marilyn
McNatton, and Marilyn Black.
Senior Class Prophecy
The spring of 1964 blossomed down upon the growing city of Fernald, Iowa. l"ernald, lowa,
richest city - richest agricultural community in the world. lt was a bright, sunny day, filled
with the fragrant odor of lilacs fa day in which the marvels of mother nature were at work de-
veloping the green of our trees, the young of our animals, a day which was the beginning of a
beautiful new lowa summeri. It was on this day that a mcn, his wife, and teenage son came
down the steps of a vine covered building on the comer of 127th Street md Happiness Avenue.
Who are they? Well, maybe the inscription engraved on the building would clarify their signi-
ficance to our story. The inscription read "Cummings Combined Music and Business Education
Schools". Yes, Nr. and Ms. Cummings, after having taught at the Fernald Public Schools for a
period of four years, had decided to establish their own school in the flourishing suburbm area
of the Fernald Community. So, after building their school md acquiring stemdards of the utmost
quality, they had decided to take a long deferred trip to the For West, and also to the lands of
ice and snow, Alaska md Canada. And so we ioin them as they bid their school md students
good-bye. Their new 1964 Buick "Car King" stood with magtificent grace md beauty on the
street as they came with their touring equipment to embark on their summer-long trip. They were
soon prepared to leave and with the press of Mr. Cummings' foot on the accelerator of the car,
the Cummings' were off to follow the setting sun, leaving the fertile fields of lowa, which they
called home, behind them.
From lowa, across the Missouri River into Nebraska, their wheels kept rolling. While iour-
neying along they noticed numerous road-side sigws advertising the National Dog Show being
held at North Platte, Nebraska. Since Gary, the Cummings' son, was quite interested in the
showing and hmdling of dogs, they decided to attend the even ing session of the show at which
time the grcnd champion was to be announced. The even ing's events proceeded rapidly md
finally the climax was reached when the champion dog of the nation was to be named. The
Master of Ceremonies blared forth, "The winner is Duke lll, a Labrador Retriever from "Abbie 's
Kennels", located on the banks of the Mississippi River near Erie, lllinois, owned and operated
by Nr. cnd Mrs. Albert Miller". Mrs. Cumming appeared thunderstruck. lt surely wasn't the
same Millers who had taught at the Fernald Consolidated School in i952-53-54. However, to
find out, she and her husband went quickly to the winner's platform where, sure enough, they
found the Millers hovering over the prize winning Retriever. After the introductions had taken
place md the four foot trophy was shined and placed in the Miller's traveling trophy case, the
Cumming' and Miller's went out for a late dinner. During the meal they refreshed their mem-
ories of the bygone school days at F. H. S. After a ioyous evening, the former teachers bade
each other adieu and proceeded on their different ways.
And so they ioumeyed on across Nebraska, crossed the North Platte River and entered
Wyoming. They stopped at Cheyenne for the night and the next moming went shopping. While
walking down the street they heard two small boys arguing about a coming sports event to be
held at the new Cheyenne Coliseum, which would seat 200,000 people. During the argument
the words "Globemasters", "World Champs", and "Famous Players" flew freely. Wondering
what the coming event was, Mu Cummings asked the boys, "What is this great attraction that
you're talking about?" "Well," said one of them, "The world famous Globemastersp you know,
that baseball team that made the whirlwind performmce lest year in Europe, well, they're
going to play the Maior League All Stars tonight, and we were trying to decide who is going
to win. " Gary popped up. "Say, Dad, that would be a great game to see. Why don't we spend
the evening at the Coliseum '?" "Okay," was the elder's reply. So the Cumming' were off to
the ball game.
The stands were packed in the lighted arena as the famous players were announced. First
came the All Stars and their manager the great Casey Stengel. Next the "Globemastels ", the
most sensational sporting attraction since the famous Globetrotters Basketball Team. First the
players were introduced and then the announcer gave recognition to "The Greatest Personality
in the sporting world today, the famous manager of the Globemasters, the marvelous Donald
Begg". As the crowd thundered their ovation through the stcnds, Mr. and Mrs. Cumming md
Gary looked at each other in astonishment. lt couldn't be! No, not the Donald Begg who had
been superintendent of the Fernald Schools in their teaching days. But after the game, in the
runway to the lockers, they met him as true to life as ever with hat cocked on one side of his
head, pipe in his mouth, and with a grin a mile wide on this face ithey had won the game 6-
21. He didn't recognize them at first but as Mrs. Cummings remarked, "How are Ginger and
Helen?" he got a funny far away look on his face as he stopped stock still. "Mrs, Cumming,
is it you?" "Yes. " "Really?" And so another evening was spent reminiscing over past
memories. However, all pleasant things must end, so, with the saying of good-byes, the
Cummings' left them to move on toward the western horizon.
After leaving Cheyenne, they again headed toward the Great Northwest and what might
lay before them. Unfortunately, they could not foresee the excitement and thrills awaiting
them on their trip over the rugged Rockies. They spent a ioyous week climbing the mountains and
then started the downward path. They slowly descended down upon the foothills of westem lddwo.
Driving along the scenic pathways they suddenly were confronted by a sign pointing out across
the low lying hills. lt read "Picht's Peachy Pines" - Famous Tourist Resort-60 miles. "That name
sounds very familiar, " said Mrs. Cummings' to her husband. "l wonder if that could be the girl
whom ltaught back in F. H.S. " They drive on when suddenly, sputter, sputter, choke, sputter
went the car. "Oh, no," momed Nh. Cummings, "l knew we should have filled up at that
last gas station. " Suddenly Gary called to his folks from the back seat, "Hey, is that a light
over there ?" Sure enough they saw the glow of many colored lights off to the left. "l wonder
how far it is to those lights?" said Gary. Suddenly car lights loomed up behind them md an
old prospector in an old Model T got out md asked if they were in trouble. Mu Cumming re-
lated the happening and asked him what the lights were up ahead. l"le told them it wm Picht's
Peachy Pines the best eatin' ioint in the far west. After finally getting some gas, they de-
scended upon the Peachy Pines to spend the night. They went to the office md found a yomg
lady sitting at a desk. Mrs. Cummings asked for reservations and when she told the girl what her
name was,on astonished look crossed the face of Lois Ann as she recogrized Ms. Cummings, her
fonner teacher at F. H. S. They talked of the many things that had happened in their years
together in high school and then as it was getting late, they went to bed to get some rest.
After spending a week of relaxation here, the tourists again set out for the Pacific Coast where
they planned to take a boat to Aslcska.
After a beautiful trip across the rolling hills of Oregon, they at last arrived in Astoria, a
quiet seaport town overlooking the blue expcnse of the Pacific. They were excited as they
stopped the car in front of the office where they were to buy their tickets for their ocean trip
to Anchorage, Alaska. The boat was leaving at 2 o'clock that aftemoon of a beautiful summer
day. The tourists then boarded the boat and, after getting their car stationed on board, took
their luggage md at once proceeded to their cabin. The whistle blew its note mnouncing the
beginning of the voyage md with it came the demmding calls of the ship's captain. "Man
the ropes, pull the mchor, tum the wheels". The voice sounded familiar - yet it seemed odd
to be heard here on this ship, especially her voice. But when Mrs. Cummings spied the blue
clad figure in high hat md starstudded vest, it was who they had expected. Yes, Gladys
Fincham another member of the graduating clcss of i954, who was now captain of the steamer
"The Oregon Belle". During the ocean trip northward, many hours were spent discussing
the happenings of each during Gladys' high school days'cnd the years intervening.
Arriving at .Anchorage they left the boat and found a quiet lodge at which to spend the
night. Early the next morning they begm their ioumey to Mt. McKinley where they were
to be taken on a guided tour. One of the high points of the tour was actually seeing a way-
station and learning the purpose of one. They were preparing to leave after thoroughly look-
ing the station over when a group of mountain climbers came into the station. Mr. Cummings
commented on the fact that there was a girl in the group. The guide overheard the statement md
explained that this particular girl had come from a small town in lowa, where the countryside
is relatively flat, and she had always had the desire to climb. Through further inquiry, Nlrs.
Cumming was astonished to find that it was none other than Marilyn NlcNatton. Since neither
of the two were pressed for time, they sat down md begm reminiscing about their golden school
days. Typing, shorthand, and literature classes fumished them with a lengthy discussion which
had to be discontinued as Miss McNatton had to retum with her companions to the foot of the
mountain to plan a new way to ascendMt. McKinley.
The next moming they left Mt. McKinley to continue on to Fairbmks. While in Fairbanks
they went on a tour of the main industries and buildings of the city. While TOUFFHQ one of
these buildings the guide told them about the large F. H. A. convention that wcs being held
there that week. At the present time there was a lecture. going on in the auditorium so they
couldn 't go in. When passing the door of the auditorium, Mrs. Cummings noticed a poster hmg-
ing by the door telling about the lecturer. She was surprised to see that if was one of her stu-
dents from F. H.S. , Mary Lou Wise to be exact. When she told the guide that she knew her
md would like to see her, he said it could easily be arrcnged. After the lecture, Mrs. Cummings
md Mary Lou sat down to discuss everything that had happened in the past ten years. Nkxry Lou
told of how she had gotten interested in lecture work. Mrs. Cummings was sorry to see the dis-
cussion come to m end but as she said, time waits for no one.
The next stop on their itinerary was White l'brse in the Yukon territory of Canada. They
arrived there about noon md went directly to a hotel for dinner. As that was the busy secson
of the year, there were no empty tables, however, at one table there was a man dining alone.
From the looks of his clothing and the instruments he had with him he reminded them of some-
one connected with the scientific research. Nts. Cummings thought it would be interesting to
talk to him, md besides in doing so they would have the opportunity of ordering cmd eating
their meal. So they approached him and asked if they might sit at his table. When the mm
looked up, Mrs. Cummings recognized him immediately as Gerald K. from Fernald. After they
had ordered their meal, Gerald told them that he was here doing research work for l.S. C. on
the study of uranium. They talked of many of the good times at F. H.S. and what each had been
doing since Gerald's graduation . They spent the remainder of the day at his research center
looking over the experiments md laboratories. But, as they had to be moving on, they bade him
farewell and started on their now homeward bound ioumey.
Again Mrs. Cummings regretted having to leave one of her former students, but Gary was
mxious to make it to Calgary in time for the famous rodeo, so good-byes had to be said. All of
Gary's impatience was unneccessary because they reached their destination in plenty of time.
After purchasing their tickets they went in and seated themselves as comfortably as possible on
the wooden plmks. Mrs. Cummings prepared herself for a boring evening, by settling back md
reading a magazine. She read during the broncho riding md steer raping. She was iust getting
ready to read mother article when her attention was drawn to the loud speaker's mnounce-
ment of the trick rider for the evening. Mrs. Cummings was very startled to hear that Marilyn
Black md her Golden Palomino were to be the main attraction.
After a very thrilling performance the Cumming strolled to the performers stand and
congratulated Marilyn on her wonderful md thrilling achievement. They then talked over
old times md memories together. Once again our now weary travelers retumed to their trip
because their time was now growing short.
The next week was spent ioumeying eastward across Canada. lt seemed no time at all mtil
they approached the United States border. Upon reaching this line, as is always customary,
they had to have their car and luggage inspected. As this delayed them they complained to the
custom officer. He explained to them the necessity of it md apologized for the delay. A they
were about to leave the way station another officer shouted, "Hey, Ching, you had better
tell those people they have a flat tire." This nickname rmg a bell md as Nr. Cumming,
assisted by the officer, chmged the tire, Mrs. Cummings inquired cs to the source of this
familiar nicknane. She found that, just as she had suspected, it was none other than Gerald
Hitchings. Mrs. Cummings talked to Gerald for awhile and found that Gerald would be off
work in an hour or so. She was very anxious to talk to him so they decided to spend a little
more time visiting in the vicinity. The next day, however, they continued on their ioumey.
Ps they cane down across the beautiful green pastures of Wisconsin they began seeing many
dairy farms. After passing through Milwaukee, they again came to the fertile pastures and
modem dairy farms. One especially caught their attention. lt was cn extra nice farm with
beautiful white fences and building. The pcstures were dotted with hundreds of Guemsey
dairy cows. On the gate hung a sig1, worded, "Headquarters for Dadismm Dairy Drean Fcxms.
Once again fate seemed to chance upon the Cummings' for on this trip they had come in con-
tact with each member of the graduating class of i954 and were with them for a short time in
each of his or her professions. So they drove up the long winding lme and came upon a beauti-
ful lmdscaped yard md home. Afknock on the door brought to their service a maid who in tum
led them to Mr. Daniel Lee Dadisman in person. The day was spent touring the famous farms
and the evening spent conversing about the trip to date, and l.ee's success in the dairy business
But already September had rolled around on the calendar, and the Cumming' had to retum to
their school in the heart of the combelt.
A summer's ioumey wcs at an end, a ioumey filled with wonderful memories. Memories
that would stay with them, as the high school memories had stayed with each graduate of the
class of I954. 1

ur Own Way.
Senior Skip Day, l954, was held on Wednesday, April 28, in Des Moines. The eight
seniors md Mr. and Mrs. Begg arrived in Des Moines at approximately 9:30 and upon
arriving went to visit the Mmicipal Court House. Our guide showed us the various depart-
ments connected with the operating of a city government as well as the city iail . With
this tour completed we drove to Bishops for our dinner. The afternoon started with a visit
to the Capital where we learned about many interesting historical things. None of us were
satisfied until we had tired ourselves by climbing to the dome. Then to change the atmos-
phere we went to the Airport Driving Range to try our hand at golfing. From the golfing
range we traversed to the Coca-Cola Bottling Plant. Then to rest our weary legs we attended
the RKO-Orpheum Theatre. After viewing a double feature we drove to the Municipal Air-
port where we spent an enioyable dinner hour. At 9:00 o'clock we departed to the minhlfure
golf course. From there we went to the East l4th Drive-In-Theatre where we saw"'Stalag l7"
and "Roman Holiday". After a long fit was then 2:00 A.M.i but joyous day, we began our
Changing the trend of the past few years, the Seniors of 1954, had their graduation pic-
tures taken at the College Town Studio, Ames, Iowa, rather than iourneying to Eldora or
The date was February l9, o day that started with bright sunlight and a glorious atmos-
phere but ended in a deluge of downpouring rain.
We arrived, the eight seniors and Mr. and Mrs. Begg, at 9:30 and proceeded at once
to have our photos taken. After having our pictures taken, we rummaged through the College
Town Music Shop playing records. Just before lunch we were taken on a tour through the
WOI-TV Station by the wife of the photographer. After seeing "behind the scene" action we
traversed the campus to the Memorial Union where we ate our dinner. After thus refreshing
ourselves we spent the greater share of the afternoon bowling and playing billiards at the
Union. From the Union we went to the College Dairy Farm to watch them ready and milk
their dairy herd. Having toured the farm, we iourneyed to the Sheldon Munn.Hotel for an
unforgettable supper. Again filled to capacity,we attended a movie and then ioumeyed
on our different ways.
And so ended our picture' day. A day that brought us a number of results. First, of
course, it meant pictures for all of us. It also gave us a few more experiences to add to our
long list of high school memories. And last, and truly the most disastrous of all was that
the day after we had our pictures taken Mr. Begg came down with an unusual illness and
missed two weeks of school. lHe always said the cause was from the riotous meal and wise
cracks, plus the rain which was just too much to take.,

Jerry and Nancy have iust returned to their former home in the foothills of the Rockies
to convert the old mansion into an inn. With several hardworking friends, George Larkins
and Bill West, they manage to complete their plans, even though the grim, silent house-
keeper, Mrs. Smith, gives them warning to dire happenings should they proceed with their
Cheerfully ignoring the awesome hints of disaster, Jerry and Nancy fill their hotel
with guests, and then all sorts of baffling events occur.
On Saturday evening April 24, 1954, the Juniors entertained the Seniors and the teachers
with the traditional Junior-Senior Banquet in the "Cloud Room" at the Des Moines Airport.
The theme "Blue Hawaii" was carried out with Ul46l6l6S as favors, Hawaiian Girl Nut
Cups, and appropriate music. After the Juniors presented each Senior and teacher with Or-
chids and Boutonnieres, a delicious three course meal was served consisting of the following

After the program we all went to the Des Moines theater to a movie "Executive Suite".
It was on September il, that the Freshman Class of 1954 was welcomed "Ha" into the Femald
High School. The Sophomore Class took over the reins of the green freshies and eagerly led them
through their day of "reckening". As usual each member of the new class wore his own "delight-
ful" costume to school. During the day the "Greenies" carried out the Sophomores every wish.
That evening the Freshmen, still in uniform, assembled on the lawn in front of the school-
house to leam clearly what Initiation truly is. The first course served them was the tantiliz-
ing paddle line. Second course found the Freshmen walking by a table on which several differ-
ent "dishes" were placed and each in tum felt the ingredients in each one. The third course
consisted of a Truth or Consequences program with the record "Dragnet" being played during
the proceedings. After each Freshman Knot very green now, had been officially welcomed into
high school the sophomores furnished the entire high school lunch which brought the curtain
down on a very hilarious evening.

Freshman Return Party
On September 26, l953, the Freshman Class held their
return party for the high school. A hayride and wiener roast
were planned for the evening's entertainment.
At 8:00 the hayride was on its way. We were lucky to
have a clear evening and fairly warm weather. We went to
Hall's timber For the wiener roast at 8:30. The refreshments
were wieners and buns, kool-aicl, potato chips, and marsh-
mallows. The remainder of the evening was spent on the hay
ride, which we hope everyone enioyed.
