Senior Class of
Forreslon Communily High School
Opening Day of School
Seplemher 1, 1961
GIRLS BOYS TOTAL FRESHMEN 26 39 65 ii
A score of years, one fifth of a century, is a reckoning not uncommon for the length of one genera-
tion of mankind. To have effectively served in a responsible public position in one community for 20 years
is an achievement realized by only a few. The subject of this sketch, Willard VanNess, was employed in
the late summer of 1942 to teach commercial subjects at F.C.H.C. Mr. and Mrs. VanNess and their three
year old daughter, Kathleen, then moved to our community. He was a mere stripling, "six-one" in height,
and weighing exactly twenty pounds less than the 1962 scales records.
In the summer of 1943 Mr. Sprague,our head coach, heard the "call to the colors" for World War II.
Mr. VanNess, with no coaching experience, agreed to take charge of softball and basketball, while Mr. Poe
handled track. The "Rookie" assumed the added duties in stride along with the regular full-time class-
room schedule. He produced championship teams in both sports. His basketball team compiled the best
record earned by any Forreston basketball team in 20 years.
The next year he also handled track to make him a three-sport coach. He continued this heavy
schedule until the fall of 1948 when Mr. Brinkmeier arrived.
The commercial department has consistently been a strong one in our school. More students go
directly to gainful employment from this department than from any other in F.C.H.S. Many girls go to
Freeport offices. A number of boys have held positions of trust and responsibility in the armed forces
due to their commercial training at F.C.H,S.
Meanwhile Mr. VanNess is like "Old Man River,"--he just keeps rolling along, and he does have
second generation students in his classes. The family has an attractive new home in "Sunrise View"
addition in the southeast corner of town. From that base each morning the family issues forth to three
destinations: Mrs. VanNess to her teaching position at Leaf River, Mr. VanNess to F.C.H,S., and son
Jim to the eighth grade rooms at Forreston Elementary School. The three year old daughter of 1942 is
now completing her second year teaching Girls' P.E. at Barrington High School.
Mr. VanNess is crowning this twentieth year in our school by serving as senior class adviser
and by coaching track. He also maintains that major interest in the commercial classes. He does admit
that the first 20 years are probably the most difficult and he thinks he will retire just before the 40 year
mark arrives. But he wears well and rolls with the punches. He could make the 50 year mark!
In view of the above record, and for the promise of the future, we, the class of 1962, are happy
to dedicate this twenty-third volume of the CARDINAL to our class adviser, our commercial teacher,
our track coach, and a trusted adviser at all times---Mr. Willard VanNess.
What is so rare as a day in June!
If winter comes, can spring be far behind?
Once again here as schoolmates assembled,
We fain would lift our hearts in song,
To our high school, our dear Alma Mater,
Let gladness the moments prolong.
We are proud of our lads and our lasses,
Of honors won in days gone by,
So here's a cheer for our old High School
For Our Old High School, Our Dear O
Here's to our classes, Here's to our lasses,
Here's to the lads they adore,
Here's to the seniors so mighty,
Juniors so flighty, freshie, and sophomore,
Let mirth and gladness, banish all sadness,
Then as the days go by
You'll find us ready and steady
Boosting for Forreston High.
Soon for us will our schooldays be ended,
The dreams of youth that fade so fast
But we know that our hearts oft' will
In memories of scenes that are past,
There are joys that will long be remembered
And friendships too that ne'er can die,
So here's a cheer for our old High School
For Our Old High School, Our Dear O
Cheer, cheer, for Forreston High
Cheer for the red and cheer for the
May the odds be great, or small,
We'll be the victors over all.
Cheer, cheer, for Forreston High,
Raise your mighty cheers on high,
We'l1 stand by our Alma Mater,
On boys to VICTORY!

STANDING -Paul Moring, Lester Schneiderman, Robert Smith, Howard Scott. SEATED - John I. Masterson
Gerald Duitsman, Onne A. DeWall, Earl J. Link, Edward Ackerman.
The Forreston Community High School, District No. 219, was organized in the spring of 1937. The
five board members elected then were: Onne A. DeWall, Earl J. Link, Herman Frey, Walter Kaney, and
Clarence Rademaker. J. E. Fisher was employed to serve as clerk. Two of the original five are still mem-
bers: Onne A. DeWall and Earl J. Link. Oscar Vietmeier replaced Clarence Rademaker in August, 1940,
when the latter moved to Polo. Warren Kaney was elected in April, 1948, to succeed his father, Walter,
J. E. Fisher served as clerk until April, 1944, when he retired following 44 years of consecutive
service on Forreston school boards. He was succeeded by B. H. Unangst who served until May, 1954.
G. R. Duitsman, the present secretary, succeeded Mr. Unangst.
In 1954, a new state law became effective whereby two members were added to make a seven man
board. In April, 1954, Warren Kaney was re-elected to a three year term and two new men were added:
Paul Moring and Howard Scott. Glen McGraw replaced Herman Frey in 1956g Edward Ackerman took Warren
Kaney's place in 19575 and Lester Schneiderman replaced Oscar Vietmeier in 1958. In 1959 Robert Smith
replaced Glen McGraw, who was planning to move to Rockford. In 1960 Moring, Scott, and Ackerman were
re-elected for three year terms, and in 1961 Lester Schneiderman and Onne A. DeWall were re-elected for
three year terms.
SEATED-Mrs. Lusardi, Mrs. Grande, Mrs. Amsrud, Mrs. Ellis, Mrs. Ziegler, Mrs. Frederick, Mrs.
Capps, Mrs. Brinkmeier. STANDING- Mr. Carpenter, Mr.Brinkmeier,Mr. Erickson, Mr. Finch, Mr. Egan,
Mr. Frederick, Mr. Kickert, Mr. VanNess, Mr. Farley, Mr. Masterson.
Thirteen full-time instructors and four at part-time make up the FCHS teaching staff. Mrs. Ziegler
and Mrs. Frederick come each morning-the former to teach freshman English plus one class of junior
English and the latter to handle girls' PE classes. Mrs. Ellis comes in the afternoon to teach shorthand,
economics, and general math. Mrs. Amsrud is here each day at 11:30 for band or boys' chorus and parts
of other days for chorus and lessons. She also has band practice every Wednesday night.
Mr. Farley and Mr. Kickert are new to our school, having succeeded to posts vacated by Mrs. Mc-
Avin and Mr. Hendee. Mr. Farley has a master's degree and Mr. Kickert is well advanced on his require-
ments for the master's degree. Seven teachers have master's degrees and three more have made marked
progress toward that goal.
Mrs. Brinkmeier is the capable and efficient office secretary. She also has charge of the Board of
Education bookkeeping this year.

enior Class History
August 29, 1958, was a memorable day for one of the largest classes of freshmen ever to enter
Forreston Community High School. There were sixty-four of these vivacious freshmen whose names
were: Gary Abels, Norma Anderberg, Judy Asche, George Baal, Leon Bogue, Jerrene Borchers, Steve
Borchers, Joann Bornemeier, Kathleen Brunson, Lyle Coffman, Esther Dale, Kermit Daniels, Robert
DeVries, Neil DeWall, Jane Duitsman, Lloyd Folkerts, Carl Forney, Sandra Gagliardi, Diana Genkinger,
David Graff, Bonita Greve, Carol Hagemann, Judith Haijenga, Sandra Hammer, Karl Harmon, Virgil
Hayunga, Karen Hoch, Leona Hoch, Larry Janssen, Carlton Johnson, Linda Kaderly, Gerald Kaney, Pamela
Kramer, Helen Krum, Patricia Lambrecht, George Lamm, Barbara Link, Gale Ludewig, Cheryl Malott,
Larry Meyer, JoAnne Miller, Karen Moore, Diane Nesemeyer, Linda Nevenhoven, Leta Pierce, Marlene
Pierson, Dorothy Ratmeyer, Donna Raymond, Lyle Raymond,Roseann Raymond, Darlene Ross, Faye Ruter,
Paul Sanders, Gayle Schneiderman, Michael Scott, Leland Shellhouse, Beth Smith, Larry Stein, Carol
Stukenberg, Gerald Stukenberg, Rita Suess, Franklin Wahl, Frederick Wiederholtz, and Dianne Wiley.
During the year, we lost JoAnne Miller, Leta Pierce, Paul Sanders, and Rita Suess, and we gained Randy
Babcock, Norman Newbury, and Nancy Rogers. JoAnne Miller returned later in the year after spending a
few months in Florida. Our class officers for the freshman year were:
President .... ..... L yle Coffman
Vice-president .... . . . Barbara Link
Secretary .... .... C arlton Johnson
Treasurer .... .... M arlene Pierson
During the year we entered a float in the Sauerkraut Day Parade, sold magazines, and had several
bake sales as money-making projects.
In the fall of 1959 our class roll showed sixty-five members. George Baal, Leon Bogue, Esther Dale,
and Lyle Raymond had not returned,but Randall Bolen, Curtis Newbury, Leta Pierce, and Edgar Ruter were
new members. During the year, we lost Kathleen Brunson, Sandra Hammer, and Leta Pierceg but we gained
Jay Koeller. Our sophomore officers were:
President ....... . . . Larry Meyer
Vice-president . . . Bonita Greve
Secretary . . Norma Anderberg
Co-Treasurers .... . . . Sandra Gagliardi
We again entered a float in the Sauerkraut Day Parade and had a stand. Other activities to fatten
our treasury were magazine sales, bake sales, and car washes.
In the fall of 1960 our class enrollment dropped to fifty-five. Norman and Curtis Newbury, Edgar
Ruter, Leland Shellhouse, and Franklin Wahl had not returned. A pair of Lyles, the Towering Tempel and
brunette Robinson, were new members. During the year we lost Linda Kaderly. The Junior Class officers
President ........... Dianne Wiley
Vice-president . . . Karen Hoch
Secretary . . . Pamela Kramer
Co-Treasurers ......... Cheryl Malott
We entered another float in the Sauerkraut Day Parade and had a food stand. During the year we
sold Cardinal folios, had a car wash, sold food at the football and basketball games, had bake sales and
several "sock hops" after home games. On November 11 and 12 the Junior Class presented three one-
act plays which were directed by Mrs. Capps. They were "The Uninvited Ghost," "The Storm," and "Don't
Kiss Her Now." We were hosts for the 1961 prom which took place in the beautifully decorated gym. The
theme was "Hawaiian Holiday" with the music by the Ray Bianchi Orchestra.
In the fall of 1961 we entered school with fifty-three seniors. New members of our class were Carol
and Richard Allen, and Sharon Henry. These three members were with us for only a few months. Four
others made up deficiencies to be eligible for graduation by May. The Senior Class officers were:
President ....... . Gayle Schneiderman
Vice-president .... .... L arry Stein
Secretary . . Joann Bornemeier
Co-Treasurers ....... Norma Anderberg
Our class Adviser for all four years was Mr. VanNess.
During the year we had several bake sales, sold ice cream at basketball games, sold Cardinal folios,
and served the Alumni Banquet. The Homecoming Dance theme was "Black Magic" with music provided by
Ray Bianchi. An artistic job of decorating was done in the gym.
Our many activities gave us a fair-sized treasury and we made plans for our senior trip right after
Easter to Washington, D.C. Our senior class play, directed by Mr. Farley, was presented April 6 and 7.
Thus we leave 'fdear old FCHS" as a class of graduates looking forward to a brilliant future with
these treasured memories to carry with us.
ienior Class Prophecy
It is a warm autumn daywhen two '62 Forreston graduates enter the Gala Davine, an elegant restaur-
ant on New York City's famous 5th Avenue. As Pat Lambrecht and Neil DeWall enter they are greeted by
the manager, Gayle Schneiderman. The following conversation is quite revealing in regard to members of
the illustrious Class of '62,
Gayle: Well, hi, Pat! Neil! It surely has been a long time! What are you doing in New York? How's
the star reporter for the New York Times?
Pat: Just great! I've been assigned to cover the opening of the "Gala Davine."
Neil: Yeh, and I've assigned myself to sample the cooking. I've just finished the drawings for the
Interior Decorating School. Norma Anderberg is going to be the general manager.
Gayle: She's come a long way in the six years we've been out of high school.
Pat: Yes, she has. Gayle, did you hear that Lloyd Folkerts is in town, too? He's opening at Carnegie
Hall next week, giving his star performance on the cornet.
Neil: What happened to Larry Meyers and Kermit Daniels after they finished college?
Pat: They both started a business of their own.
Gayle: Pat, did Carol Hagemann and Judy Haijenga get the secretarial jobs that they applied for?
Pat: Yes, a month after graduation. Jane Duitsman, Leona Hoch and Helen Krum are employed in
an office, also.
Neil: What happened to Mike Scott and Darlene Ross?
Gayle: I got a letter last week from Mrs. Michael Scott saying that they are in Wisconsin. Mike's
drawing plans for General Motors, now.
Pat: How's Lyle Temple doing at Cordova?
Neil: He's still tramping the old gas pedal. He came in first place two weeks ago in the Grand
Gayle: Say, I read in the Times that Bob DeVries raised and showed the World Champion Landrace
Hog. Speaking of FFA boys, what happened to Lyle Coffman?
Neil: Lyle owns his own cattle ranch now.
Pat: From the news I hear, he and Joann got married.
Neil: Carlton Johnson is running his own barbershop in Forreston. Coach Carl Forney is scheduled
to appear at the Rose Bowl next month. Bonita Greve is going to be featured there, too, on the International
Pat: I received word from Lyle Robinson last Monday that he likes the Navy quite well. He's been
promoted to Chief and is awaiting orders to embark for Hawaii.
Gayle: Is Steve Borchers enlisted in the Navy yet?
Pat: No, he's back in German Valley. He's running Borcher Bros. now.
Neil: What ever happened to Jerrene Borchers and Larry Stein?
Gayle: Jerrene is doing experimental work as head lab technician at Iowa State. Larry took over the
Stein Bros. after his father retired. I received a letter from Faye Ruter last Wednesday. She said that
George Lamm, Gale Ludewig, and Randall Bolen have farms of their own back in the old home state. Faye
is enjoying the farm life, too.
Pat: We've got a big wheel in Washington, D. C.
Neil: Who's that?
Pat: Barb Link. She heads the National FHA Department.
Neil: Did Judy Asche ever make it to Canada?
1 Pat: She surely did. She's teaching Phys. Ed. classes in that new iron ore region near the Arctic
Gayle: Has Sandy Gagliardi graduated from nurse's training?
Neil: When I stopped at the Standard Station in Forreston Jerry Stukenberg told me she is working at
Dixon State Hospital and she is really happy with her work.
Gale: Pam Kramer is working at Rockford Memorial Hospital. Is Linda Nevenhoven or Cheryl
Malott working at Freeport Memorial Hospital?
Pat: Linda is, but Cheryl has become a surgical nurse and is working in Chicago.
Pat: I read an article in "Look" Magazine featuring outstanding beauticians in America. They gave
honorable mentions to JoAnne Miller, Diane Nesemeyer, Marlene Pierson and Carol Stukenberg. They all
have their own shops.
Gayle: When will that program for the armed forces be put on here in New York City?
Pat: I'm assigned to cover that, too. It's scheduled for December 23. It is supposed to be quite a
spectacular with the "Ladies in Uniform" giving the performance. Donna Raymond, Karen Moore, and Beth
Smith are to participate and Dianne Wiley is going to take time out from her Corrective Speaking School
to M.C. the program. Karl Harmon is stationed in the Phillipines at our Air Force Base there.
Gayle: Out of a class of fifty-four, we have three who went into the field of religion.
Neil: Who else besides Gerry Kaney, an agricultural missionary?
Gayle: Well, Roseann Raymond is in the foreign fields, and Dorothy Ratmeyer is teaching and helping
to preserve Freedom of Religion here in the States.
Neil: What became of Dave Graff's jokes?
Pat: He's still leaving his friends in stitches.
Neil: How is Virgil Hayunga?
Gayle: Virgil owns and operates his own garage.
Pat: Karen Hoch is teaching now, isn't she?
Gayle: Yes, she teaches an elementary class in a small school in Texas.
Neil: Are Diane QGenkingerJ Murray and Nancy fRogersJ Waack still arotuid Forreston?
Gayle: Yes, they have their own families now and are very happy. And did you hear about Fred
Wiederholtz? He began to help his father repair rifles and now he has developed a special rifle that our
next astronaut will take along to the moon.
Pat: Look at the time. I've got to run. I've got a story to write. Sure glad we ran into each other,
Neil. Good luck on the restaurant, Gayle. I'll see you around. Good-bye.
Neil: Bye, Pat. Say, how about my food!
Gayle: Coming right up.

The 1961 Cardinal Cross Country Team "flew" through a highly successful season by winning six
out of seven dual meets and placing second to Pecatonica in the Route 72 Conference Meet. The boys also
placed second in one triangular meet and third in another.
The frosh-soph did equally well by climaxing their season with an impressive victory in the Route
72 Meet. Larry Sluiter was the top yearling for the season, but Wayne Miller deserves much credit for
his stellar performance in the Conference Meet. Wayne was a regular footballer, but he willingly traded
heavy football gear for running shoes and was the first Forreston runner to enter the chute. He was
third among all the conference cross country boys.
Varsity letter winners were:Sen-
iors-Bob DeVries, Gale Ludewig, Lar- U
ry Stein, and Lyle Tempelg Juniors-
John Kitzmiller, Gerald Vietmeier, and
DuWayne Everts. Tempel and Ludewig
were probably the most improved run-

The Conference Meet was held at
Forreston on October 18. The results
were as follows: VARSITY: Pecatonica

FROSH-SOPH: Forreston 47, Franklin

"Cardinal Footballers" had a successful year. They ended in 3rd place in the Route 72 Con-
ference and 7th in the Journal Standard Top 10 ratings. The first game at home was with Mt. Morris. We
played hard but lost 27 - 6. Then we played a powerful Winnebago team. We were behind 6 - 0 at half-time.
The second half wasn't as good, for Winnebago outscored us 19 - 0 in the rain and mud. Then came Stillman
Valley and a 0 - 0 tie. After that game we really played ball, winning the remaining games. We played
Pecatonica at Forreston, outscoring them 21 - 14 for our first win of the season. We then traveled to
Franklin Center,where we wonby a 27 - 0 score. Then came the game which everyone had been waiting for,
our Homecoming game with Leaf River. Our boys were fired up for this game. In previous years Leaf
River had often overpowered us. 1961 was different. We won 34 - 12. Byron was next, at Byron. In this game
Carl Forney finished his high school football career, because he became 19 years old a few days later. We
won this game easily, with Carl ruzming for 3 TD's, or 18 points, before his 19th birthday.
Don Schneider replaced Forney for the last game. He did a great job, scoring three touchdowns.
We won this game 29 - 0 over Ashton on our field. Bud Coffman scored his only TD of the year in this
game when he ran 30 yards in the last quarter. So all-in-all it was a very successful year. Besides having
a five game winning streak to carry on to next year, there will be 12 returning lettermen. Through gradua-
tion we will lose many fine players. Fromthe backfield will be gone Carl Forney, the team's leading scorerg
Jerry Stukenberg, the able field general, and Lyle Coffman, a hard running flanker. In the middle of the
line we will lose Fred Wiederholtz and Carlton Johnson. These two were capable on defense as well as
offense. Virgil Hayunga was a lineman who proved his worth throughout the past season. Mike Scott played
capably at end. He was a very good pass catcher, although he was one of the smallest Route 72 flankers.
The returning lettermen for next year are Leighton Duitsman, Mickey Dwyer, Rich Gronewold, Tom Kriens,
Paul Ruter, Don Schneider, Gene Simmons, Paul Swalve, Bob Bowers, Lee Coffman, Bob Raleigh, and Dick
Stocker. A number of others will develop to help out next year's team.
FROSH - SOPH REVIEW
The Frosh - Soph won the Rt. 72 championship via a rare display of courage and skill in their final
game at Byron. The score was 0 - 0 at the half. Stocker was not to play in the second half, being kept out for
the Varsity. Raleigh could play only the third quarter. Then the roof fell in. Byron ran the second half
kickoff down the north side line for a touchdown. Then the extra point made the count 7 - 0. Bill Black, the
Baileyville flash at our right end spot, said, "I saw that Byron speed demon whiz by, but I couldn't catch
him." Things looked dark for the Cardettes. Stocker and Bowers were gone, and Raleigh had only minutes
to play. But the whole gang got busy.Raleigh did more plunging, lunging, and twisting than ever before. That
tough line of Black, Brass, Faulkner, Frisbie, Coffman,R. Schneiderman, Janssen, Miller, Frank, and Mor-
ing really dug in. Walt McIntosh threaded the needle with several passes to glue-fingered Randy Schneider-
man. Mighty Mite, Gary Ross, Dennis Meinert, and Jim Schneiderman did their share in the backfield and
these stout-hearted lads gained one of the greatest victories of the year -- a fine 12 - 7 win over a good
Byron club. These boys are the toast of the present and the hope of the future. The sophs will help next
year's varsity and the frosh will keep the '62 yearlings rolling. What won't they do in '62?

Pep Club, the organization which cheers the
Cardinals on to victory, was designed to encour-
age enthusiasm among the Forreston fans and to
give positive and dynamic leadership for student
school spirit - "Cardinal Spirit."
All the members sit together at every game
to project more volume in voice and spirit to the
team whether they are on top or whether they are
Club dues and a ten cent fee for riding the

The 7 9-piece FCHS Band began another banner year by playing between games and at halftimes of
the Varsity football games. The band marched to the theme of "Droodles" on Homecoming night during half-
time of the Varsity game. Many fine performances were given by the band, and also Pep Band, for the home
During the summer of '61, the band presented excellent concerts downtown every Wednesday night.
The FCHS Band and the Leaf River Band presented a combined concert in the FCHS Gym, November
29. The 120-member combined band played four selections. Also, individual selections were presented by
each band. During the second semester, the Forreston Band traveled to Leaf River to help present a similar
concert there. Both band groups enjoyed the group activity.

1961 - '62 brought another large group of girls to Girls' Chorus. This group serves an important

There were forty-eight members in Boys' Chorus this year, with Dave Buttel serving as pianist.
Mrs. Amsrud has commented that this is the most well-balanced boys' chorus to represent us in several
years. At the Ogle County Institute at Oregon on February 9 they royally entertained the county teachers
and received many fine compliments. They sang like professionals, holding tmdivided attention from this
Choice selections rendered by the group during the year included: "Be Kind to Your Parents,"
ffnown the Open Road," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Chisholm Trail Days," "Rock-a-My Soul," "Rollin'
Down to Jordan," and "Climbin' Up the Mountain."
This Boys' Quartet has been one of the best
that ever represented FCHS. They won several
substantial money awards and had more calls
during the school year than they could meet.
They also sang at the Ogle County Teachers
Institute in February, being well received by that
group. It will be difficult to replace this great
quartet since the three seniors will be gone:
DeWall, Johnson, and Coffman.

The '61 - '62 year has been another success story for the Choir and their veteran director, Mrs.
Amsrud. Forty-four girls and twenty-nine boys blended their vocal talents to make this another outstanding
musical organization. They sang at the community Christmas program December 17 and the Easter Cantata,
"Were You There?" They also sang at the Baccalaureate services on May 27.
The fine harmony from this group has been heard in and near the music room every Friday during the
ninth hour and on the first and third Tuesdays during the seventh hour.

The Instrumental Contest this year was held at Freeport. Even though there was stiff competition,
Forreston received several seconds, and the marimba duet of Gayle Schneiderman and Darlene Ross
' received a first which entitled them to compete in the State Contest at Macomb, Illinois. Congratulations to
everyone who competed in this contest!

The Vocal Contest was also held at Freeport the same day as the Instrumental Contest. Carl
Forney received a first rating on his vocal solo, and the boys' quartet-DeWal1, Johnson, Coffman, Duits-
man - received a first. This entitled both numbers to go to the State Contest at Macomb, Illinois.
The other contestants won seconds and thirds at Freeport but this did not qualify them to go on
to the State Contest. All participated and did well. Our hearty congratulations go to each one of them

BARBARA LINK, STATE PRESIDENT
One of the finest honors our school and
community has had in recent years was the elec-
tion of Barbara Link as state president of the
Illinois Future Homemakers of America. As such
she was the elected leader of 29,628 girls who
were members of 592 local FHA chapters in
Illinois. Nor was she merely a girl with a
"tit1e." She was an acknowledged leader and she
effectively directed the work of the organiza-
tion. Gov. Otto Kerner and other youth leaders
at Springfield were impressed with her ability
to handle a meeting and her presentation of
She addressed numerous chapter meetings
in Northern Illinois, attended two national con-
ventions in Chicago and two state meetings at
Springfield. She closed her term by presiding
at the three day State Convention in June at
Normal. She also excelled in the many commit-

Association by G. R. Duitsman, F.C.H.S. '41, and now cashier of the Forreston State Bank.

ence by handily winning their division of the Rt. 72 Conference Meet.
The varsity letter winners were Bob Bowers, Tom Kriens, Leighton Duitsman and Fred Wieder-
holtz. Tom Kriens was high point man and so has his name on the track trophy for 1962. He has a chance
to repeat in 1963 since he is a junior.

McIntosh, Wayne Miller, Bob Raleigh, Jim Schneiderman, Randy Schneiderman and Dick Stocker. Bob

On November 10 and 11, the Junior Class presented as their class play the hilarious three-act
comedy entitled "Lock, Stock, and Lipstick." A fine group of juniors under the expert direction of Mrs.
Capps gave two commendable performances. The same cast appeared both nights.
The action of the entire play took place in the guidance office of Pembroke High School. The play
opens with Mr. Warren, school guidance counselor, who is very much opposed to women, discovering
Miss Gardner, a girls' counselor, is going to live right in his office. To complicate matters, a large sum
of yearbook money is reported missing. In the end right triumphs, the yearbook money is recovered, and
Mr. Warren changes his mind about women. In fact, he decides to marry Miss Gardner!
The cast of characters was as follows:
Mary Lou Brennan
Rose Marie Roach,
Joanne Forney, Paul Ruter,

The entire action of the play takes place in a bright cheery room in a private hospital where Jonathan
Puckett, anelderly man who is the pet of the hospital, and Henry K. Dodson, a new patient, are staying. When
Mr. Dodson first arrives at the hospital he is very cranky and unruly, but after his stay there his personality
is greatly changed. He becomes very kind to everyone, and he even apologizes for the way he acted previous-
ly. All of the other characters add comedy to the play, and from the response of the audience the play was
