After becoming a little more acquainted with the ways and customs of the school, we elected the following' officers to steer our auto: DRIVERF-BOB PHI LLI PS5 ASS'T DRIVER-BOB HAt'Kl'IHg SIGN READER-Mt PNA Pt It lllltl. The backseat drivers were Miss Niekamp and Mr. llenuner. To repre- sent us at the Uompah we selected Sandra Douglas and Jack Pike. The BB. Attendants were Mona Poole and Sandra Douglas. Our social life in our green years was eontined to a scavenger hunt which included the whole town. Boy! were we tired! ! ! lVe returned the next year minus eleven ot' our erewinates. 'llhey were Wendell Bray, Buddy Burke, Kenneth llinds, Ruth llarmon, liohhy Joe Douglas, t'arol Jean Dyson, Doris Allen May, llenrietta t'ohh, Wayne Sturgeon, Junior lioyles and tllen t'henoweth. ltalph Gentry and Anna lieu Kelly joined us. lint this did not discourage us as we kept el111g'gi11g':1long'. Hur crew which tried to regulate our steam were: l1INtllNl'll+IR-HUB l'llll,l.lI'Sg FIRIGMAN-B014 IlAt'Kl'IIig SIGNALMAN-SANDRA lltilttl-IAS, SWl'I't!llltlAN--l5tlNNlI+I IIUNKIGI.. Our hrakenlen who tried to control us were Miss Skelton and Mr. Lockwood. Hur tloinpah candidates were Mona Poole and Boh Phillips who were crowned king' and queen. tlur B.B. Attendants were Jessie ltohinson and Alice Ann Purcell. ' Hur Sophomore year was higllligrlited with a "kid" party. Such original costumes that were displayed!! With our Sophomore year ending' so gaily, we anxiously looked forward to our Junior year. We took off with soaring hopes for a super year. Four members bailed out: Alice Ann Purcell, Hugh Mounts, Lillian Hickrod and Cecil Hurt. The crew was increased by twonew fliers, Janie Meredith and Bob Yeager. Our Junior year flew past with the following crew: PILOT-SANDRA DOUGLAS, CO-PILOT-RUTHANN FAIRCHILD 5 BOMBARDIERF-BOB YEAGER5 1 RADIO-MAN-BOB JACKSON. - Our instructors for '45'46 were Mrs. Brown and Mr. Weaver. Abe Dilbeck and Mary Allene Mason were our Oompah candidates while we chose Faye Hasselbrinck and Sandra Douglas for our B.B. Atten- dants. This year we received our class rings which we considered the prettiest ever worn around F.B.H.S. We also received our green and white sweaters in time for the Invitational Tourney. My, were we Proud! ! This year we celebrated with a Christmas party a11d named our team i11 the class tourney, "Bubo's Bobcats." Having had great success with our Class Play, we splurged by having a super reception. We cruised through our Senior year with full steam ahead. Those who fell overboard were Anna Lou Kelly and Janie Meredith. lVe welcomed Jack Pike back from the Navy. The officers of our ship were: CAPTAIN-J ACK PIKE 5 CO-CAPTAIN -BOB HACKER, N AVI GATOR-BOB J ACKSON 5 TORPEDO-MAN-DAVIG HILL 3 RADIO-MAN-BOB PHILLIPS. Our supervisors were Mrs. Brown and Mr. Baker. Our Oompah candi- dates were Janie Meredith and Bob Jackson. Faye Hasselbrinck was the basketball queen with Sandra Douglas and Loretta Weber as at- tendants Our final year was started off with a chili supper and a hayride. Br - - This year fairly tlew--Class Play, Annual, etc., and we found we were really busy. Our team this year was called "The Green Hornets" and the other teams really felt our sting. We hate to say goodbye to the old school but each is anxious to see what awaits us after gradua- tion. So, so long. ? , fass Cgvroplzccy 0 '47 As I walked up the steps to the old "Alma Mater" who should open the door but JOHN ROBERT HACKER. Immediately I wondered if Bob had succeeded Mr. Baker as the principal of the great high school, but after conversing with him for a few minutes he enlightened me on the subject. It seems that Bob 's main occupation is farming while he devotes a little time to an Owensville girl. Yes, kids, he finally decided to settle down and save wear and tear on the Plymouth. As we continued to saunter down the hall, I bumped into another classmate, RALPH FRANKLIN GENTRY, JR. Bud told me that he was preparing to run for president in a few years, but in the meantime was hunting for a brunette who was not a Hboogey-woogey-ite." Leaving Buddy, we went down the still dark and dismal stairs into the old gym. Upon entering this beautifully decorated gym, my heart turned ha flip-flop. There was something so familiar about it and that song that the orchestra is beating out-where had I heard it before? ? Suddenly it dawned on me that these are the same decorations we had used for the J unior-Senior Reception in 1946, and the "Victory March" was the theme song of our orchestra. What a perfect setting for our 10th class reunion. I was startled to hear a voice behind me. When I turned around, I thought I recognized the face, but still no one in the class had been so handsome. Suddenly I realized that it was BOB JACKSON. Bob told me that he was now an actor in Hollywood, under the name of Robert Powers. He also told me that another classmate had gone west too. MARY ALLENE MASON is playing opposite Roy Rogers in her be- loved cowboy movies. Suddenly something hit me on the head. When I glanced up at the ceiling, I saw that it was just BENN Y McINTYRE trying to fasten the crepe paper back. Later I learned that Benny had succeeded Mr. Mc- Intire as janitor of the one and only school. Just then the orchestra struck up another number. It sure was grand to see so many of our old classmates all together. There was RUTH- ANN FAIRCHILD at the piano. Although the outstanding music teacher of the state, she chose to return to F.B.H.S. to teach. And there 's the former SANDRA LOU DOUGLAS. Having had me as her first partner, she is now playing the bells with her husband, Yehudi, the famous violinist. They have a small son named "Doug" so maybe she isn't playing second fiddle to the fiddle. The music is interrupted by JACK PIKE. Jack has made the Navy his career. I accidentally heard that Jack has a girl in every port but no special girl in any port. Jack is announcing that the trio will now render "I'm Only Ninetten." After a minute I realized I had belonged to that so I found my way to the stage. There I found J ESSIE ROBIN- SON and IRIS ANSLINGER. These two girls had been leading much the same type of lives. Iris is on the "Hit Parade", while Jessie is featured on "Waltz Time." After finishing our number we three re- returned to our seats to discussiold times. V KENNY PAUL DODDS, who has his own orchestra at the Stork Club, is our next soloist. We came to the conclusion that the 1947 Senior class certainly had talent that got places. ELMA DORSAM is the head cook at the Stork Club and is very' famous for her Southern Biscuits which she learned to make in Home Ec. at F.B.H.S. I noticed that the lights were dimming and the music was very soft. Out on the stage steps our school-day crooner, ABE DILBECK. While listening to his arrangement of "Stardust", I learned that he is co- starring with Iris on the Hit Parade. So tune in every Saturday night at 8:00 and listen to the famous students of F.B.H.S. My attention was suddenly diverted from the stage by a group of voices at the table next to me. There I found ELOISE BUCK, NORMA SOLLMAN and GEORGIAN N GRAPER. Norma is a famous hair stylist while Eloise is alworld known designer. Eloise told me they were soon leaving for Hollywood to work at a studio. Sure seems that Ft. Branch 's population is decreasing while Hollywood's is increasing. As for Georgiann, she is the world's champion typist. She now occupies her spare time by writing 11ew speed test books, and when completed, they will be presented to her beloved old institution. Actually the school is getting some different speed tests! ! . When I turned around there stood CHARLES MCREYNOLDS and DAVE HILL. Charles told me that he had married that little blonde We tried to find out about in our Senior days, and recently was crowned "Wheat King" of Gibson County. Dave is the editor of the Evansville Courier, now a democrat paper. I thought that paper had a familiar twang to it! ! 4 The drum section aroused our interests and as we looked to see who was doing such a good job on "THE MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS" I saw that it was the former FAYE HASSELBRINCK. Wonder if Faye uses those same sticks on Bill Jr.? Swinging the bass drum stick was the former MONA POOLE, now the wife of Indiana's governor. Seems that Mona has gotten to be quite a prominent social lady. Playing the clarinet was YVON NE WILHITE, who is now an air hostess on the HTWIGS TWITTERH of which BOB PHILLIPS is the pilot. Talking to them later, Bob hinted that there were special rates for any old classmates who were brave enough to go up, to which Yvonne add that she had a good supply of air-sick pills. Seems that they know their old classmates pretty good! I strolled over to a table where BESSIE SMITH was sitting. Bessie has turned out to be quite glamourous, having won the "Miss America" beauty contest in 1952 down in Florida. I heard rumors that Bob Jack- son would like to have her as his leading lady in his next movie. Here's hoping! Also at the table was ROBERT LEE MAAS, who is now the mayor of Evansville. Although he may be the boss of that progressing city, a certain little blonde reigns over his household. ' I continued over to the next table and there sat two of my old pals. LORETTA WEBER is now the wife of an Evansville professor and seems to enjoy society life. JOYCE CARTER is the now well-known professorite of Purdue University. A glint in her eye told me that there was perhaps another professor that is helping her to build dreams in- stead of bridges. At the next table was the former BONNIE DUNKEL and JUNE WALLACE. Bonnie and Perk took the fatal "step and now have a couple of little "Perks". June is about to tie the strangling knot with a Poseyville guy. June just decided she couldn't or wouldn't live any- where but in Poseyville. Bonnie told me that PATRICIA SCHMIT was the only Senior absent. Pat and her sailor are now residing in Hawaifi. Better be careful of those little hula-hula girls, Pat! ! Just then a booming voice diverted my attention. It was none other than ROBERT YEAGER. Bob is now traveling salesman and usually he can arrange his schedules to fit wherever "Army" Ls playing. He told me that he had met up with another classmate while touring the wets. WILMA SCHUESSLER is sawed in half every night. Now don 't get alarmed, she .married a magician. BILL JACKSON strolled up and I learned that he had married Lois and they were living west of town on the farm. Bill was recently elected "Corn King". Now you can see our class had talent. As it is getting late, I had better hurry, As for myself, my love for traveling has gotten the best of me and to date I have flown around the world twice. In my free time, I write the feature stories for the New York Times, having had my first experience on the "Twig Twitters". This reunion has been wonderful for each of my classmates has gone far beyond the goals I had set for them. Woiicler what tl1e next ten years hold for us-well-we'll see at our 1967 class reunion.

'14 X .x garewell gram a Qjenior When We close our school books with a sigh At the end of twelve perfect years, We wonder what problems ahead do lie But each will be met without fear. When we entered as Freshman, we were fifty strong We wanted to see these four years fly past But now'as Seniors we realize how wrong For the time has flown so fast. We 've grown strong in body and mind. We 've worked and studied for days On lessons that were due at a certain time But we received more than just grades. We 've learned to work and play together And to willingly help each other. N o matter the kind of weather ' We considered our classmates as brothers. Much honor goes to our teachers Who so patiently tolerated us. It wasn't all cream and peaches To them a salute is a must. And to our many pals and friends ' Who in the future will fill our places. We hope you will remember our grins And speak to us whenever you see our faces. A -AILEEN HOFMAN Ngf 8071 5Kate""3 - ' u 1 1 f ll I E lun. I . M ' :QQ as is 5' f .

Fort Branch High School Baseball Team was Gibson County Champs of 1946 with three other teams, Owensville, Haubstadt and Patoka in the league. Fort Branch was tied in games won and lost at the end of the season with Patoka, so a play-off was necessary to decide the winner. After dropping the first one at Patoka by a score of 8 to 6, they came through in fine fashion to win the next two. The second- game was played at Fort Branch and the deciding contest at Lafayette Park in Princeton.

Norma: "Yes, they say his mother feeds him marble cake, rock candy, and brick ice cream." "It says here in the paper," observed Mr. Weaver, "that a man is run over in New York every half hour." "Tak, Tsk!" murmured his wife. "Poor fellow!" Eddie Bales, looking at his report card, said: "I'm famous like George Washington now." "How's that?" asked Jughead. "Well, I just went down in History." Mrs. Brown: "Are you sure those lobsters are fresh?" Fishmonger: "Lady, they are positively insulting." Mr. Baker: "I would like to know why it is that whenever I leave the room for a short time and then return I find no one working." Donnie Wallace: "It's because you wear rubber heels." Jessie: "Does the moon influence the tide?" Kinko: "I wouldn't know, honey, but it sure influences the untied." Heredity is something everyone believes in until his son begins to act like a fool. Mrs. Elpers demanded of a bright-eyed 13-year-old how long he had studied for aapoorly recited lesson. "Well," drawled the little boy, "I studied from 'Blondie" until 10 o'clock news." A thrifty man went to Mr. Lockwood for advice. After the interview the man ran into an acquaintance and told him about it. "But why spend money on a lawyer?" asked the other. "When you sat in his office, did you see all the law books there? Well, what he told you, you could have read in those law books." "You're right," admitted the advice seeker, "but that lawyer--he knows the page it 's on." Freshman: "Some upper classman was just telling me that we are to have a new concrete stadium next fall." Sophomore: "Yes, the alumni have at last decided to use their heads." Aileen: "Can you telephone from a submarine?" Bessie: "What do you think I am, a dumb-bell? Anybody can tell a phone from a submarine! !"
