When we returned to school last fall, we noticed many improvements, Let us take a tour through the building a
see what some of them are,
First, I would like to direct you to our study hall, It has been equipped with approximately one hundred new des
Mr. Le Count's office has been moved to the front of the study hall. The old stage has been removed and the library l
been placed in that space, To see all of these improvements, we take notice of the new fluorescent lighting syste
These lights have also been placed in the bookkeeping, typing, and old ag rooms.
Now let us move down one flight of stairs and look into the English room, New desks have taken the place oft
old ones. We find a new tape recorder sitting on the back table, It is used a great deal in our speech work which is ni
a part of our Senior English.
Further on down the hall, we venture into the mathematics room, New tables have been set up and bulletin boai
installed. These bulletin boards have been placed in almost all classrooms,
The ground floor of our school has quite a few improvements. Several new lockers have been installed and a us
ful coat rack has been placed on both sides of the entrances.
A new firedoor has been placed between the gymnasium and main building. It automatically comes down when
certain degree of heat hits the activators.
Last year, toward the end of school, we were very happy to see the very modern scoreboard installed in the gyn
nasium, It is a Fair Play board which cost approximately Ssoo. It was purchased by the Board of Education.
The foul and name assembly was purchased by the Forman fans. I. L. Thomas and Hal Willet headed the campaii
and approximately S500 was contributed, A white light on the foul and name assembly denotes the player is in the gan
and the red lights denote the number of fouls each player has. The board tells the time by the changing of numera
Soldwedels has loaned an ice cream storage freezer to the high school for all of the organizations to use, A popco
machine was purchased last year to be used at basketball games. It has proved quite useful and it really does make got
This fall a new section was added to the ag shop. The building was insulated and divided into five rooms. Tl
largest of the five rooms will be used as a work shop. The boys will study woodworking and care of farm machinery ar
will complete various projects using the tools and equipment in this room. The other four rooms will be made into a
office, a storeroom, a rest room, and a classroom. The ag classes moved into this building March 2.

In the fall of 1949, a group of thirty-one freshies was welcomed into M, C,H, S, by the sophomore class, A short
,stance south of Manito, a similar group of nineteen new students was welcomed into F.C. H. S. by the class of 1950,
he going was pretty rough for the first two or three weeks, but we finally learned where our classes were held and things
:gan to go a little easier. ln Manito, we were initiated for two weeks and in Forest City, for one day, After the in-
iation, we were honored with an initiation party, A few weeks later, we gave a return party for the class who initiated
s. At the end of our freshmen year at Manito High, we lost Tom Schmick and Shirley Thomas from our class,
During our sophomore year in Manito, we had the honor of initiating the freshmen, and in retum, we were given
party by the freshmen class, We sophomores of both towns found high school to be a lot easier once we got the knack
fit, At the end of this year, we lost Martha Bale from Forest City and Donna Callaway and Wilma Vale from Manito.
The two schools became consolidated before our third year, and the new school was named FORMAN. Our junior
lass gave the first play to be given by the Forman Senior High School, It was called, "If Mother Only Knew, " Mrs,
awlis was our director, and the play turned out to be a great success. Our class also edited the first FORMAN FLASH
:hool paper. One of the main events during our junior year was the 31st of December when our class rings arrived. We
ere very happy to receive these rings and were very well pleased with them. We were kept pretty busy in the middle
F the year with the selling of concessions at the basketball games. Our biggest worry was keeping up with the crowd on
rurnament nights, This job helped a great deal in making money for our class trip, We lost four juniors form our class
:is year, They were Danny Knackmuhs, Margaret Purdy, Jean Callaway, and Dallas Hawkins.
August 29, 1952, forty-four of us returned as seniors. We presented our class play, "We Shook the Family Tree, "
gain having Mrs. Lawlis as our director, We also sponsored two square dances and a chilli supper. Many a hard night
as spent at the high school working on the 1953 annual. May 29, 1953, we forty-four seniors marched down the aisle
r the strains of "Pomp and Circumstance" and received our diplomas.

Dear Mr. LeCount,
We had our annual Class-of-'53 reunion last week, Each person gave a short report of what he had done since
graduating from FORMAN HIGH, These reports proved quite interesting, We decided that perhaps you would be in-
terested to know what each '53 graduate did after leaving the halls of FORMAN and what each is doing at the presen
Several of the '53 graduates decided to attend Westem College at Macomb, Among these were ARLA IEAIN
FOSTE, who is now a junior high teacher at Canton, Illinois, ELOISE WAHLFELD, who is teaching home economic:
at Pekin High, and JOHN DOSIER, who is now a member of the faculty at Purdue University.
DENNIS WOIWODE and ELOISE WHITAKER both attended Normal University, Dennis received his Ph, D, in twc
years and can now be found cleaning the streets of Manito, Eloise taught at a Pekin grade school for a while but is
now married and has a two-year old son.
FRANK VAUGHN has really come up in this world, for he has become known as the world's greatest basketball
manager, He hasjust developed a method of starching the players' suits so that the members stand out, PARK LAWLIS
is also well known in the basketball world. He attended college for four years and is now touring the country with the
great "Earth Worms" ball team, Another well known name is this catagory is DALE DARNELL who attended U, of I,
for two years and dropped out to accept an offer as a T, V, sports announcer. ANN HEYL also attended U. of I. After
obtaining her bachelors degree, she began teaching commercial studies at Washington, Illinois,
Since this is a farming area, many of our boys belong to the farming group. Several of them seem to be doing
quite well, VERGIL BORTELL tinkers with electricity in his spare time and reports that he should have his shock proof
electricity ready for production within the next few months, LEROY JAMES has recently discovered a method by
which he is able to do all his farming by T,V, and remote control, He finds it quite simple to do his farming and
raise his three sons by merely using "switches," GEORGE LONG and RICHARD MIDDLETON both farm southwest of
Manito, George is married and has a son, but Richard has decided to stay single. Cheaper, you know!
SHIRLEY PALMER and ARVIN JOHNSON have both come up in the science world. Shirley has just recently be-
come the head nurse at Methodist Hospital in Peoria, and Arvin is the friendly undertaker of this area,
Ouite a few graduates went to work at Caterpillar. DON WILSON became a foreman in a machine shop after
completing his apprenticeship, JAKE SMITH also took an apprentice course and is now a specialized machinist,
BONNIE O'HARA worked in an office at Caterpillar and later married. She is now living in Pekin. JOY RISEN and
NORA MAE GOLDEN both worked in a Caterpillar office after graduating from FORMAN, Joy later married and she

The boys got to play more baseball together this year because they entered a summer league formed with teams o
the surrounding area. Our summer season was very successful as we won five and lost only one. This one loss was t
Delavan when only half of our varsity team was there. The Frosh-Soph team did a fine job of subbing for the varisty
but the powerful Delavan team couldn't be stopped. The fall season was even more successful. The Braves made a
sweep of nine games scheduled and three in the Abe Lincoln Tourney, They brought home two beautiful trophies fo
the Abe Lincoln and Mason County Championships,

Forman did very well in basketball this year. After showing great promise in the first game against Bath, the Brave
took four straight before losing their first in the season to Athens.
The next game was one of the most important games of the season. With Coach Brodman called home because o
the death of his mother, Mr. Lawlis took over coaching duties against Easton, The first half of this game was a clost
battle, but after a good rest at halftime, they took the game an captured the Green Duck,
After this game the Braves lost to Havana and then took an easy one from Hopedale.
The sailing wasr1't so good for a while after the Hopedale game. The Braves lost two straight, one to Delavan, ant
the other to Mason City. y losing to Mason City, we also lost possession of the Green Duck,
Forman then took another mage from Bath before the County Tourney.
The Braves fared pretty well in the Toumey. Our first game was with San Jose. lt was a tough battle all the way
With about four seconds left, Parker Lawlis, on a nice pass from "Coonie" Golden, sank one to break a 45-45 tie. B1
