' HISTORY COMF lFlLATlHIlEAlD
Fifty years ago Kalispell did not have
a high school building. All students from
the first through the twelfth grade attended
school in what is now Central lunior High.
ln l899 state funds were made avail-
able and a grant of Sl0,000 was secured
for consrtucting the first Flathead County
High School. This was a small frame build-
ing which stood at the intersection of what
is now Eighth Avenue and Seventh Street
West. In later years the building was
moved to Main Street and Sixth Street and
became the main part of St. Matthew's
Mr. E. A. Steere, the first principal, with
the aid of another instructor, taught the
forty students. Some ardent member of the
student body rose early enough in the
morning to stoke the stoves and stayed
late enough at night to sweep the floors.
There were probably several reasons
which lead to the conclusion that a new
building should be constructed. That the
plaster on one side of the assembly room
completely gave way, covering one row
of seats and beautifully powdering the
second must have had its influence on the
decision. Another even more pressing rea-
son was that enrollment had more than
doubled in three short years. At any rate
a new building, a part of the present one,
was erected in the summer' of 1903.
When the classes began in the new
building, the number of teachers employed
had risen to eight or ten. Mr. E. A. Steere
was still acting as principal and lim Phil-
lips, destined to become a familiar figure
about the building, had taken his job as
Elathead's first track and football teams
were organized soon after the completion
of the new building. Both boys and girls,
believe it or not, enjoyed track, but foot-
ball was a "man's" sport and a strange
game it was. Many of the football rules
differed greatly from those of our modern
game. Imagine seeing a football game with
no forward passing or one with only five
yards to gain in three downs.
Travel seemed to be the track team's
main difficulty. Cars were of course not
available, and if they had been, there
would have been no roads, so on a trip to
Missoula the team took a stage coach as
far as Demersville. From there to Polson
they traveled by boat. The remainder of
the trip was divided between coach and
train. Result: a team which should have
placed first got only as far as fifth.
By 1906 students were enthusiastic about
the new game, basketball. This was an-
other sport in which both boys and girls
participated, in spite of strenuous objection
from the faculty. The girls not only played
against other girls, but they also tangled
with the boys, and at that time there was
no such thing as girls' rules. lncidentally
the boys did not always win their games.
Outside of athletics there were only two
extra curricular activities, the Olympic and
Athenian Literary Societies. Every student
belonged to one or the other. The two so-
cieties debated between themselves, gave
plays and parties and in general carried
on most of the students' social activities.
Through the years new activities were
added. lnterschool debate became popular.
ln 1916 the first Arrow was published.
After the first World War, enrollment
gradually increased to such an extent that
in 1935 the school had to be remodeled
and enlarged. Through the efforts of Mr.
Templeton, principal, at that time, and the
school board, a WPA grant was secured
The original building of 1908 now makes
up the north wing of the school. The old
shingle roof was removed and replaced by
the flat modern roof. The entrance tower
was greatly enlarged. The interior of the
old building was completely refinished
with new plaster, wiring, heating and
plumbing. A partition dividing the assem-
bly room, now study hall, was added.
On the exterior the bricks were stained
and stucco paint was applied to make the
coloring harmonious with new parts of the
The boiler room was expanded and a
new boiler installed. ln later years this
boiler was converted into an oil fired fur-
Altogether eight classrooms, a shop and
the auditorium were added to the old
The gym, then a shop, had too low a
ceiling for use as a gymnasium so the
roof trusses and tower were removed. Walls
were heightened by new windows and
the roof was replaced with steel trusses.
The balconies, shower and locker rooms
were added, and much of the floor was
replaced. The brick work on the outside
was, of course, stained to match the rest
of the building.
Extensive as the remodeling of l935 was,
many classrooms and laboratories are
again crowded as the enrollment increases
each school year.
So as the years have passed from 1898
to 1948, each graduating class carries with
it into the future nostalgic memories of
cherished days at "Our Old High."

In the fall of l944 a new class was wel-
comed into the F. C. H. S. domain, ruled
by the seniors, class of '45, with a pace
set by the juniors, class of '46, and humor
from the sophomores, class of '47,
This new class which we shall refer to
as the class of l948 was not aware at the
time they entered the halls of higher learn-
ing that they were to be the fiftieth grad-
uating class or in truth, the Golden Class
The first day at Flathead was an eventful
one. The little nuggets were welcomed into
the school by lim Robischon, Student
They were then issued schedules which
proved complicated to the greenies. ln a

Miss jean Mack, music instructor, and
Charles Keith, shop department, were as-
signed as our faculty sponsors. With their
guidance and help we selected Iohn Robi-
schon, as chief prospector, who has garn-
ered many honors since. His assistants
were jimmy Clark and Eva jean Kirkpat-
The day finally arrived when the yet un-
discovered nuggets could prove their worth.
They had been given their first assignment,
to whiten the school emblem on the hill to
the west. A multitude of gleaming students
picked their way to the top of "Old Baldy"
and the "F" has not glistened the same
The Youth Fair, now an annual project
was in its second year and altogether new
to us. We nominated Arlene Skiftun, a
polished and shining nugget, as our repre-
sentative for queen. We originated the tele-
gram booth which has been used every
The greenies of "48" came in amid much
razzing and hazing. After our initiation, all
such foolishness was discontinued.
"Pepiness" was our outstanding quality
and we sent Shirley Morton, Eva jean Kirk-
patrick, George Duffy and johnny Robi-
schon as our candidates for Pep 'n' F. This
club was under the sponsorship of Miss
Della Ve Carr, former dean of girls, and
did much to bolster the school spirit.
The football team scalped Whitefish 33-6
and captured the Northwest champion-
Iustine Mather and Io Anne LeFevre were
invited to join the ranks of majorettes,
Frosh boys who were taken into the
Flathead Chapter of F. F. A. as greenhands
were Einar Brosten, Howard Glazier, Phillip
Kiser, Keith Kohl, james Leighty, Bob Pat-
terson, Robert Peters, Bob Powell, Francis
Van Binsum, Carl Wurst, Don Olson, Dale
Mahlum and LeRoy Baker.
Our first special party was given us by
the Sophomore class. lt offered lots of good
food and fun for all.
Four freshman girls were elected by the
home rooms as cheerleaders to replace the
four senior girls who were to leave in the
spring. They were: Clarice Parr, Eva jean
Kirkpatrick, Ianice Ludwig and Ieannie
Yaple, who later moved to Libby and was
unable to assume her duties,
"Norwegian Nights" the story of Edward
Greig was presented in operetta form as
the all school dramatic production. Frosh
contributors to the cast were: Arlene Skiftun,
Leroy Baker, joan Baldwin, justine Mather,
Dorothy Root and Mary Anne Wormley.
The class then presented their assembly
program which was a musical comedy. The
plot centered around a New York night
club whose entertainment displeased the
owner. He sent some talent scouts out West
to find a new and fresh show. A cornfield
produced a number of farmers' daughters
who danced and were sent to New York.
The assembly was greatly enjoyed by the
entire school, mainly because it lasted
only 30 minutes and school was let out
Betty Ann Kaus, Sally Waller, janet
Gould and Phoebe Huggins were selected
by the Ushers to wear the orange and black
uniforms in the Flathead auditorium.
The class of '45's graduation terminated
our frosh year. We were then ready to re-
turn as sophomores with less roughness
and a little more knowledge.
Our Sophomore year sarted with peace
and prosperity and the gold and good
qualities of the class beginning to show
through. The first act was to elect Willis
McClarty, president, Carl Naurnann, vice
president: lanet Gould and lo Anne Le-
Fevre, as secretary and treasurer. Phillis

Yes, indeedy! ! Here we are. The proud
and honored 50th graduating class! And
50 years from now some group ot fellows
and gals will be proud and honored to be
the centennial graduating class of Flathead
County High. Don't you wonder what all
of us will be doing then? Let's have our
Flathead "Nosterdamus" turn time ahead
to 1998 and give us the scoop. Ready?-
Flathead! Statesman GORDON VINIE fi-
nally located after 50 years disappearance!
Mr. Vinie claims to have found the mythical
Shangri-La. He stated that he has been
searching for the place ever since he first
learned ot it while a senior in high school.
He left after finding that LYNNE NEWELL
didn't live there anymore.
Last night over my television hookup I
saw and heard that famous Montana
senator, ANTON AMUNDSON speaking
against a fifth term for U. S. President,
IOHN ROBISCHON and vice president,
RUSSELL BILLSBOROUGH. Senator Amund-
son stated that our country could be pulled
out of its present chaos only by electing
his candidate, Miss GWEN SHAW, well
remembered as "Miss Fire Hose of l950."
This month I had the good fortune to
read the recently published diary of
BOBBIE ANNE DYER and ELAINE CLARK.
This masterpiece is entitled, "My Memoirs

Yep! It's the truth. That streak you saw in
the sky in September wasn't Hally's comet.
It was TED VAN and RITCHEY OSTROM
taking oft in their new planet plane. The
idea for the device which catapults the
plants into space was originated by former
acquaintances DON LEITCH and BOB
JOHNSON who got similar results with
sling shots and spit wads in high school
The "Martin City Monitor" owned and
published by Miss IEANNE TRIPPET just
announced the opening of four new super-
markets scattered throughout that booming
metropolis. These ultra modern stores are
to be managed by Kalispell's HARLAN

STANFORD and DALLAS DUNHAM. Roof-
top helicopter parking lots were designed
by OSCAR KEMNIS and Sons.

ln 1916, the Flathead Arrow was organ-
ized as the student newspaper under the
editorship of Mary- Laux.
The first issue was a ten-page print. A
gradual metamorphosis has changed the
appearance of the paper. Finally in l944
the present four page, seven column form
was adopted. Editions of the Arrow are
published every two weeks with printing
handled at a downtown shop. The general
management is done by the advanced
journalism class. The first year journalism
students meet thrice weekly to learn the
fundamentals of writing.,
To possess ability and willingness to
work are the only qualifications necessary
for eligibility on the Arrow Staff. The staff's
purpose is to afford a means of expressing
student opinions and perfecting writing abil-
ity. This standard is effectively carried out
through the changes in the staff. The organ-
ization of the staff is determined by the
recommendations of the faculty advisors.
The new positions are announced each se-
mester so that more students may have an
experience on staff positions.
ln an effort to add to the social activities
of the school, the Arrow has arranged an
annual ball. With Ianice Ludwig as chair-
man in l947, the Arrow Ball was termed
The Arrow is a member of four journal-
istic organizations. They are the Interna-
tional Quill and Scroll Association of North-

As the '47-'48 school year draws to a
close, it is again time to summarize the
accomplishments of Flathead's governing
body, the Student Council.
The first semester council was guided by
the capable hand of Gwen Shaw, president,
and aided by Willis McClarty, vice presi-
dent: lanet Gould, secretary, and ldonna
Lindsey, student treasurer. This term was
highlighted by the successful completion
of the Youth Fair. Many beneficial projects
were completed, dominant among these
were the Christmas decorations in the study
halls and the all-school mixer following -the
Butte Central game. This, the government
of Flathead County High School, owes its
success to the willing cooperation of .home
room representatives and their leaders.
Tom McLeod succeeded in winning the
second semester Student Council election as
president, Carl Naumann, vice president:
Lynne Newell, secretary, and ldonna Lind-
sey maintaining the treasurer's position,
were elected as Tommy's right hand help-
ers. Acting in conjunction with the .Teen
Page 50 Butlreys
Town committee, the council gave the need-
ed support to the Teen Town dances. Aid
was given in the managing, publicizing and
selling of tickets and coke for the first Teen
Town dance. Skids for the study hall seats
were bought by this governing body so that
noon dancing could be enjoyed. The Teen
Town Committee provided a juke box and
ping pong tables for noon hour activity.
These are under the supervision of Mr.
Weingartner and the Student Council.
Many thanks have been given to the
Teen Town committee composed of repre-
sentatives from the local P.T.A. and a dele-
gation of the city.,These members are Mrs.

From whence came THE QUIVEB, our
high school literary magazine? Delving into
year books, we learned that in 1910 and
1911 Flathead County High School had one
general publication ,a quarterly magazine
called THE QUlVER. ln February 1924, THE
QUIVER emerged as a strictly literary pub-
lication, published at the end of each se-
mester and containing only creative work.
The name QUIVEB was revived by Wil-
liam jellison who explained, "A quiver is
always full ot unshot arrows." Dr. jellison
is now on the staff at the U. S. Public
Health laboratory at Hamilton, Montana
and did research work in China during
World War ll. Quoting from this issue we
read, "The leading colleges and some oi
the largest high schools of the country are
publishing such magazines, but Flathead
is the first high school in the state to at-
tempt so ambitious a venture."
Through the years THE QUIVEPL has
been sponsored by a literary society called
THE SCRIBBLERS. This club met on Thurs-
days alternately atter school and evenings.
The members studied lives of authors and
their works, regional poetry, or one-act
plays. Some years the club kept a scrap-
book and subscribed to a literary maga-
zine to which the members submitted their
stories and poems.
A 1928 issue of THE QUIVEB is composed
entirely of original essays contributed by
the junior English Class. Quivers oi 1940
and 1941 are illustrated by Robert Buck,
who has since become nationally renowned
tor his art work.
ln 1946, THE SCBIBBLERS' CLUB func-
tions only to edit and publish the QUIVER.
Three editions a year are being published
and because oi the high price ot paper are
being sold for iiiteen cents per copy. Typ-
ing and mimeographing are done under
the direction oi Mr. Christison of the com-
The aim of THE QUIVEB in 1948 as in
1924 is to preserve worthy stories, essays,
and poems written by students: to give
others the opportunity to read and enjoy
these selections, and thus to be a stimulus
to creative efforts.
The College Club is an informal organ-
ization which aims at vocational and social
guidance for students planning to further
Various faculty 'members lead discus-
sions on such topics as expense, what col-
leges to choose, vocaitonal and profes-
sional opportunities, methods of grading,

The Flathead Chapter was organized in
l928 and received its charter from the Na-
tional Association in l93U. On winning the
state and National Chapter Contest in l942
it was awarded the silver emblem. Since
then it has won the gold emblem for five
consecutive years which is a record-break-
ing achievement. By doing this the chapter
has broken two national records: 1, the
only chapter to win the gold emblem more
than three consecutive years: 2, placing in
the gold division of the national chapter
achievement contest the greatest number
of times throughout the years and being
the winner ot the top satte awards for six
The chapter achievement program is
without doubt the most important ot all
F. F. A. enterprises because it includes all
activities under the complete chapter pro-
gram. The complete program is made up of
many projects that help develop character,
leadership, and farming abilities of future
farmers. The program is classiiied under the
following categories: 1, supervised farming
program: 2, cooperative activities: 3, com-
munity serviceg 4, leadership activities, 5,
earnings and savings: 6, conduct ot meet-
ingsg 7, scholarship, and, 8, recreation.
Since the first Youth Fair, the chapter has
cooperated with other youth organizations
in making the fair and festival a success.
The chapter has assisted the farmers in
the surrounding communities in various
ways, such as building projects, repairing
farm machinery, constructing time and la-
bor saving implements.
This organization owns a woodlot which
is operated by the members and a harvest
of products is realized each year. Some of
the projects that are carried on by the
members include dairy, beef, swine, grain
crops, poultry, and several miscellaneous
projects such as Christmas tree farming.

A dramaiization from the world-famous
novel "Lost Horizon" by Iames Hilton was
presented by the Senior Class of 1948
December 4 and 5. The play was directed
by David T. Anderson, drama instructor.
The movement of the play is centered
in Shanqri-La. Four victims of a plane crash
are kidnapped and brought to the lama-
Conway is immediately entranced by
Helen, as Lo Tsen likewise fascinates Mal-
linson. When the secret of Shanqri-La is
revealed in a climatic scene, Conway is
torn between faith in Shranqri-La and his
desire to help Mallinson leave.
The play was readily received by both
students and adults.

Moving from Class A to AA was a big-
qer step than the varsity could take in one
year. The powerful competition they met
in this tougher conference marked their
first AA season as cellar contenders.
Highlights of the season were the Mis-
soula, Butte Public and Whitefish games.
Each was played on the Braves' home field
and brought out their best. On the tougher
side were the Anaconda, Helena, and Great
Falls meets. They were bitter defeats that
brought many heartaches to the Flathead
gridsters and fans.
With only five returning lettermen the
team was composed of 17 inexperienced
players. Because of this factor it took the
first five games before they were able to
score. As the season drew to a close, the
team played far better ball because they
had gained that ever-valuable experience.
To the Braves' credit was the fighting
spirit they had kept throughout every game.
Regarless of what the score, or how tough
the competition, they always kept fighting
till the gun ended the game.
The Papooses followed in the Braves'
footsteps by turning in a season of straight
loses. The closest our Reserves came to
taking a scalp was the 7-7 tie with Colum-
All the games played by the Reserves
were with the varsity squads of the sur-
rounding class B schools. They made a
good showing of pep and spirit throughout
the season and managed to hold the ma-
jority of their opponents down. Even if they
didn't come out on top, they gained "ex-
perience" which will come in very handy
when they move up to the varsity next year.

This organization for althletic lettermen
was formed in l900. Then in 1908 it was
changed to include award winners not only
in athletics, but also in forensics. This sys-
tem was retained until l932 when the or-
ganization became solely an athletic club
as it is now.
The "F " Club became inactive during the
war years but has now been reorganized.
A new constitution has been drawn up and
ratified by the present lettermen.
The aims of the club are to unite all the
lettermen of the high school as a body for
the purpose of helping in anyway they
might to keep a high standard of athletics
in this school. Some of the tentative proj-
ects include raising funds for specially

Keeping their state rating as cellar
dwellers, the Braves ended their hoop sea-
son with 14 straight conference losses. At
times it looked like victory scalps for the
team but they always lost out in the last
minutes of play.
The Braves' best game was the season
closer with Havre. ln the fourth quarter
the Braves led 29-25, but Havre hit a
scoring streak and won 36-33. There were
numerous other games where the scores
ran close and the lead alternated through-
out the game but always the closing sec-
onds found the Flathead five trailing.
Next year, six Braves will be back to
put Flathead on the conference map and
make up for the many "low" seasons.
The younger generation of the Braves
promise to be good varsity material next
year, after an exciting season of 10 vic-
tories. They gave the school a feeling of
triumph deep down inside, even if their
elders didn't put up as much of a fight.
Next year their war paint will be deeper
and brighter making them a threat through-
out the state.
They suffered their greatest loss in a
clash with the Eureka 'Varsity but the pain
of defeat was lessened when Eureka took
the District 13 class B championship. The
Papooses' greatest win was Butte Central
with a score of 27-47.
The Reserves look forward to next sea-
son when they don the varsity suits and
set out to make their mark in the state.
TUNIGR RESERVE BASKETBALL
The Reserves' junior partners also proved
to have a good team this year. Making
many wins they put up a good show ex-
cept for the game over at lunior High. The
members of the lunior Reserve are all
freshmen and ended their first season of
high school basketball on top.
Next year our Alma Mater should have
a whopper of a fighting Reserve squad.

Baseball, the sport for which America is
noted, was established this year as a ma-
jar sport in the high schools throughout
the state. The first Flathead baseball team
was organized two years ago and had a
short season of several games with Colum-
bia Falls. Last year, athletic "F's" were
awarded the seniors who made the team.
This season the Flathead team has before
them an organized state high school base-
The state is divided into five districts.
ln Flathead's district are Anaconda Cen-
tral, Hamilton and Troy. On April 23 and
24 the team played Troy for the semi-
district championship. The winner of this
match traveled to meet the winner between
Hamilton and Anaconda Central. The team
coming out on top then traveled to Great
Page 90 Kalispell Hotel-G. and
Falls on May 21 and 22 for the state finals.
Due to the long lasting snow and rain,
the team could not start practising very
early and the fellows were forced to work
in the gym. The team's chances at the
beginning of the season looked good with
material which had developed in American
Legion ball and three seasons of high
school games. Seniors who were out the
first year baseball was established at
Flathead and who have played three sea-
sons of ball are lim Clark, Bob Neitzling,
Bob Peters, Bob Pettit and loe Redfield.
Returning from last year's team were
Bob Abbot, lim Clark, lim Holler, Bob
Neitzling, Don Olson, Verel Overton, Bob
Peters, loe Redfield, Bill Redmond and

4448" TRACK TEAM
Looking forward to a change in the
weather, seventy boys turned out for Spring
Track. Because of the lingering snow they,
like the baseball team, were forced the
opening weeks to practice in the gym. Of
the seventy who turned out, there was only
one returning letterman, Iim Hutcheson,
high jumper. The material was abundant
but it was mostly green.
The highlights of the season were meets
with Bigfork, Whitefish, Columbia Falls and
the Helena relays in April The final
State Scholastic Meet was held at Missoula
on May 13, l4 and 15.
Coach Greitl stated that track men are
made and not born. Usually a good track
man has Worked and trained for three
years to come out on top the fourth. The
qualifications for a good track man are
patience and endurance. He has to work
and wait for his laurels.

"The Golden bells tonight shall ring,
O'er this our last that we shall bring."
With this quotation as their keynote, the
fiftieth graduating class were hosts for the
annual Senior Ball at the l. O. O. F. hall,
December 21, l947.
Streamers ot blue and white, the class
colors, and gold bells symbolized the theme
of a fiftieth anniversary. The pulsating
dance music was provided by Tracie Iohn-
son's eight-piece orchestra. The grand
march, one of the largest in many years,
was led by class president lohn Robischon
and Gwen Shaw, student council president,
followed by vice president Torn McLeod
and Betty Ann Kaus.
Dolores lnstenness sang several selec-
tions as a special entertainment feature.
The punch room, located in the base-
ment of the hall, was gaily decorated with
gold stars and streamers but didn't receive
much attention until word of the location
plus the expert quality of the punch pierced
the minds of the uniformed.
Chairman of the decoration committee,
Lynne Newell and the hard working com-
mittee composed of Bob Pettit, Barbara Olm-
stead, Gerry Lee Phillips, Eva lean Kirk-
patrick, lohn Robischon, Idonna Lindsey,
Betty Ann Kaus and Kyrol Kirkpatrick
made the arrangements for the ball.
The partons and patronesses were mem-
bers of the faculty and the parents of the
various committee chairmen.

On our scandal sheet appeared the news
that the last race at Santa Anita, February
28, was disqualified due to the fact that
the famous horse HFRUSTRATED FANNYH
jointly owned by DOROTHY ROOT, SARA
DROLLINGER, GERRY KAY HARDY and
Pl-IYLLIS KEMNA, was accused of having
been fed atom charged feed produced by
EINAR BROSTEN, PAUL IAOUETTE, IIM
LEIGHTY and LEROY BAKER.
Scoop! 1 LARRY ELLEFSON, chief chef
at IANET GOULD'S "LaRitz Cafe" an-
nounced that tonight's specialties will in-
clude "Frustrated Fanny" soup, chicken
ala Frustrated Fanny, and choice atom-
charged spare ribs.
Saturday, April l0th, the metropolitan
opera house was filled to overflowing with
fans and friends of aging DOLORES IN-
STENNESS, MARY KAY OLSON, and
HAVEN SNYDER. This famed trio gave
their farewell performance to grand opera
before sailing to retire in darkest Hindustan.
Among the many nostalgic songs of yester
year which they sang, were "Beat me
Daddy with a Solid Eight," and "I Don't
Want Her, You Can Have Her, She's Too
Fat For Me."
Finally! "DONNA BRUMBAUGH Univer-
sal "Three Dimensional Films" have found
a star for their horror pictures. Not since
Boris Karloff of the l94O's has anyone been
found who can so terrorize the general
public. When asked by radio commentator
EVA IEAN KIRKPATRICK how she came
by her talent Miss PEGGY GREIG an-
swered, "Dunno. lust came natcherly I sup-
Professors IAMES WISHART and RICH-
ARD MILLER have iust perfected a method
for putting smashed atoms back together
again. However, they stated grimly that
things in general would be less complex
if people wouldn't go around smashing
atoms in the first place.
"Fashions are changing," stated noted
dress designer PI-IOEBE HUGGINS. Young
girls of today will soon be dressing as
their grandmothers did when they were
girls. This will include lengthened hernlines
which will strive to imitate the "New Look"
of the late l940's. Daughters of renowned
former National League baseball stars,
IIM CLARK, IOE REDFIELD, IIMMY HOL-
LER, BOB NEITZING have alreay blossom-
ed forth in new creations whipped together
by the "Madamoiselles WANITA NESTON
and KYROL KIRKPATRICK Dress Shoppe."
At a recent ski tournament held at the
world famous "Big Mountain" winter resort
four oldsters got into a terrifying snowball
fight over whose personally coached grand-
child displayed the most skiing ability.
KEN ERICKSON, BOB PETTIT and DON
OLSON lost the battle to the former NORMA
BELL of Kalispell. Norma claims that she
used to beat this same trio in both skiing
and snowballing while a wee lass in high
Miss KATHRYN O'NEIL'S sanitarium for
the mentally pixilated has taken another
unusual case. Sixty-eight year old RONALD
MEYERS seems perfectly normal except for
the fact that he walks about day and night
murmuring, "I knew Lincoln. I Knew Lin-
coln. I Knew etc." Famed psychologist
"BUMPS" WINTERS traced the dilemma
back to speech activities in high school
when young. Says Dr. Winter, "I have high
hopes for Meyers. I myself knew Napo-
At a class reunion held at F. C. H. S. in
December of 1997, many well known White-
fish socialites were present. Or didn't you
know that Mrs. Egbert Scrumple was for-
merly MARYLIPPENS of Kalispell? Also
present were the former BEVERLY HEIL-
MAN, AVA and KATELYN STENBERG,
ELAINE STAUDACI-IER, and also ANITA
TIMM and ARLENE SKIFTUN.
Another triangular sky accident came
before the air traffic courts today. It seems
that helicopters flown by EARL I-IOLST,
KEITH KOHL, and IOI-IN ULRICH came to-
gether at a sky intersection and in doing
so became tangled in the flying gear of
airdestrian RAY IENSEN throwing him I5
miles through space. Although no one was
hurt seriously, Iudge EUGENE SEMPF fined
all three. The judge stated that none of the
old codgers could even drive a car de-
cently when in their teens, let alone a heli-
Frail and tottering old ladies recently
gave a party in joint celebration of their
golden anniversaries. While talking over
old times in high school, they smilingly
remembered the day in their senior year
on which they received and displayed their
diamonds. At that time, these women were
known as IUSTINE MATHER, MARION
EASTWOOD, SUNNY KNOX, DOROTHY
GILDER, BARBARA OLMSTEAD, MARY
ANN STILES, ARLETTA COLLINS and

entertainment of the year for their floor-

What's this? The time machines going
on the blink? Then your Flathead "Noster-
damus" had better shoot back to 1948-
but fast! ! But I can see one more pre-
diction coming to pass. No Senior class in
the past has ever equaled that of '48, and
it's Written in the stars that no class Within
the next 50 years or so will be able to do
so either-and THAT is all! I
