" CLASS MOTTO-We'1l dc our best and God will dc the rest. i CLASS FLOWER-Yellow Rose I v- I l CLASS HISTORY FRESHMAN YEAR After eight years of hard campaigning, our 1951 Legislature which consisted of fifty three members was finally in session. To begin our four year tenure, we elected the following officers: Jerry King, President, Bob Huelsman, Vice-President, Arlene Mayer, Secretary 8: Treasurerg and Kenneth Odom, Reporter. Our cabinet was composed of two members, Mrs. Virginia Callis and Mr. William Hopping. Naomi Pitcock and Jim Veach were elected to the student legislative body, better known as the Student Council. We the Legis- lature approved Bill 41, Republican candidates Mary Ann McCloskey and Bill Martin for the annual Oompah festivities. They were elected by popular vote of the people to reign for that fiscal period. To aid her high- ness, "Miss Basketball, " we elected Barbara Westerman and Jackie Fulton. Thus ended our first year inpower, SOPHOMORE YEAR For the second year Jim Veach headed the administration with Barbara Westerman as his assistant. Serving in the administrative post of secretary and treasurer, respectively, were Lora Lou Harmon and Lela Mae Soll- man. Our faithful cabinet members were still with us from last year. Again our party proudly watched while Larry Georges and Lora Harmon were crowned Mr. Sc Miss Oompah. Our party was further honored by having Donna Turping elected as one of the cheerleaders. She will keep this position until she graduates. Rita Chandler and Larry King were our Student Council representatives. Naomi Pitcock and Phyllis Meier were our class attendants in the annual basketball queen coronation. This year it was not a strange sight to see one of our members proudly showing off our class rings and jackets. We had a swell time trying to relive the old days in our Roaring Twenties party. As in any legislature, some members resign. The following members of our party resigned during our second year: Judy Hooker, Mary Reed, and Bill Mason, but we gained a new legislator, Daisy Mae Prince. JUNIOR YEAR In our third year as the party in power, we had added responsibilities on our young shoulders--the Jr. -Sr. Prom and the Junior Class Play. The theme of our prom was a, "Garden of Memories." During the reception, Donna Jo Lutz and Richard McGuire were chosen from the senior class to reign as king and queen. Bill 43, Father Was a Housewife, proved to be the most successful accomplishment of the year. As in previous years, we maintained the tradition of electing aides to the basketball queen. These aides were Peggy Gwaltney and Lora Harmon. As student council representatives, we had Charles Maas and Mary McCloskey. Of course, we could not keep everyone together during four year period. Mr. Robert Lochmueller replaced Mr. Hopping as our new cabinet member. We we had roll call, we found that Genevieve Weber, Alberta Elpers, and Daisy Prince were absent. To help balance the exchange, we welcomed back an old representative, Gene Boyle. We were privileged to have two of our members, Judith Lockwood and Mary McCloskey, to have the honor of attending Hoosier Girl's State. We had some administrative changes: Charles Maas, President, Barbara Westerman, Secretary of Stateg Jackie Fulton kept our recordsg Lela Sollman, Secretary of Treasury, and Kenny Odom reported our news. On the day after our class play, we journeyed to Indiana University to at- tend a football game. SENIOR YEAR -After four years of hard administration, we are finally on top. As with all promotions, more responsi- bilities are added. For our final year we chose the following to put forth our laws and principals: Larry Trible, President, Jim Veach, Vice Presidentg Jackie Fulton, Secretaryg Judith Lockwood, Treasurer, Rita Chandler, Reporter. We had another new face in the cabinet, Mr. Wayne Norrick, who had taken over the post formerly held by Mr. Lochmueller. We had lost Adrian Reinhart, but gained Delbert Oldham. For bas- ketball queen this year, our own legislative member, Arlene Mayer was elected with Naomi Pitcock and Peggy Gwaltney as her maids of honor. We had another queen in our ranks, Phyllis Meier, who was chosen Snow Queen at the annual Christmas Dance. Arlene Mayer and Naomi Pitcock were her attendants. Lela Sollman was very deservingly chosen as the Good Citizen of our school. Our last few weeks at old F.B. H.S. were filled with many pleasant memories. We'd worked very hard to make enough money to go to Washing- ton to see our government at work. Our senior play, "Girl-Shylj proved to be very successful and we were kept quite busy in general, trying to sell our annuals, working on the school paper, attending the various parties held in our honor by the colleges, and getting ready for the four main final events- -the Prom, the Alumni Banquet, Baccalaureate, and Commencement Programs. 17 H 1 S 1 .

HITCH PACKING COMPANY "fb-+.,Q . Custom Slaughtering and Processing" Princeton, Indiana l as 1 Pnornfcv f AX ,N Ten years ago today we graduated. Since this is the anniversary of the Class of '55, the plans for the class reunion are in the final stages. We were chosen to notify everyone of the time, place and date of this great occasion. After getting in touch with all of our former classmates, the day of the reunion has finally arrived. As we arrive, BARBARA WESTERMAN is preparing the table for the food. After a friendly greeting the subject turns to all the good times we had in school and many of the life-long friends we have made. We are sorry to hear from Bobby that RAYMOND SEIB, DELBERT OLDI-IAM, MARLA REYNOLDS, and BARBARA GEISELMAN will not be able to attend because they are now serving in Uncle Sam's Air Force. She mentions that she is now secretary to JERRY SCHMITS famed engineer. She adds that SHIRLEY KRAMER, MARY ESAREY, and PHYLLIS MEIER work as secretaries in the same building. The rest of our old classmates then begin to put in an appearance, so we leave Barbara and join the rest of the group. Y We begin a conversation with BOB HUELSMAN and LARRY KING, two well-known lawyers. As the conversation progresses, Larry tells us that JERRY KING has joined the Foreign Legion. As we stand talking, NAOMI PITCOCK joins our group. She tells us that MILDRED SCHUSSELER and JOANN JENKINS work as nurses in the same hospital as she. After talking to Naomi for awhile we wander over to the next group, who seem to be enjoying themselves tremendously. We soon discover why, SONNY STALLINGS, now a millionaire is the center of conversation. We look around and are not sur- prised to see wedding bands on the hands of ARLENE MAYER, LOIS EMGE, MARY DEWEESE, DIXIE LIKENS, MARCIA HOAR, and MARILYN MICHEL. We are sure they will make outstanding careers in marriage. As we three stand talking, DONNA TURPIN joins us. We can tell by the way she is dressed that she is president of a ladies' fashion shop in New York. Donna informs us that KENNY ODOM and JAMES DILBECK are in the Marines, and GENE BOYLE is in the Navy. We also find out that JACKIE GREGORY and CAROLYN WEISS are airline hostesses. We are shocked but pleased to hear that WAYNE BEELER is a big game hunter, and LARRY GEORGES is now coach at Fort Branch. Also on the teaching staff at Fortsie are LELA SOLLMAN and ELIZABETH FERRY. We're glad to see that RITA CHANDLER and JACKIE FULTON are able to close their beauty shops for the reunion and JUDITH LOCKWOOD has managed to get away from her jewelry store. LARRY TRIBLE, JIM VEACH, CHARLES MAAS, and BILL MARTIN have fulfilled their life-long dreams and become successful engineers. It seems that DICK EPPERSON and GENE LEISTER are now prominent farmers. PEGGY GWALT- NEY is a social worker and MARY ANN MCCLOSKEY is working at Riley Hospital as an occupational therapist. JIM WOLLSTON is salesman for General Motors and JOHN STONE is a test pilot for the Lockheed Jet Corporation. As darkness begins to fall we separate and go our own ways: SANDRA, back to teaching her primary classg KATHERINE, to herjob as buyer for Macy'sg and LORA, back to her nursing career. We all leave with the same thought in our minds. We are glad to see that all our old classmates have gone so far and accomplished so muchg still we can not help but wonder what the next ten years holds for us. We only hope that it will be as wonderful and just as exciting as the first ten years after graduation.
