However, the complete class met at the Hill Top for the party and reunion. what follows is an account of the doings andlives of the class of 1950 since their high school days. First of all, let's start off with Celia Hentges. The kid we used to call WCitz' came clear from Los Angeles where she is an airline hostess. I never really thought the airforce wouldhave that much affect on her back in 1950. She certainly was looking fine with her trim suit and all. However, she's not married as yet. I wonder why? David Zeller is now practising electronics in Winona. If I remember correctly,he was very much interested in both electrical work and Winona at the time of graduation. The only difference in Dave was a few gray hair and a couple of wrinkles causedby the trials of married life andthe raising of three boys. As for the boys--they certainly seem like their father. It's funny about Betty Jean Kujak. I always hadthe idea that she would be the first to leave Fountain City and the first to be married. But time shows that I was wrong. Lizzy has taken a controlling interest in what used to be the Ahts Cafe and has started a nice business. Her excuse for not marrying was, and I quote, 'Well, Paul, what I wanted I couldn't get and what I could get I didn't want.' So you see she still has the same way of thinking things out for herself the same as she did back in Fountain City High School. ' Newton Mathis is really the most educated one of all the fourteen. He is now doing very well at his practice of medicines, for animals that is. Yes,Newtie is now a veterinarian with a very good practice builtup in Alma. We always did suspect that his main interest was at Alma. when he was in school, but little did we expect he would set up a practice there. Ruthie Haeusen the one who used to do her shorthand in social problems class, is now the wife of a prosperous grocery man here in Fountain City. It seems as if Ruthie marrieda few years after graduation andis now raising a nice family,now numbering three. Ruthie still looks fine and has the same twinkle in her eye that she had back in 1950. Evelyn Karrow, who was the editor of our annual, is now residing on a farm out on the Fountain City Ridge. She and her husband have a large and very successful chicken farm. WEppien said she went to nurse's school for a year but love ovendame her, and she took on the duties of a farm lady. 12 1 Mark Semling has taken up his high school nightmare as e lifetime job, trucking and the repairing of cars. He has a large network of trucklines and a super-service garage down on the lower street of Fountain City. Mark isn't-married yet andexplains that if he hadtaken the 'fatal move' he might not have what he now has. Delbert Grossell is now an engineer in rect, and not in boots only, as he was in 1950. He has worked himself up so that he owns half interest in the 'Mountain Moving Engineering Co.' As far as the married life of Gus is concerned, he has a nice young wife whom he met on one of his engineering trips to Boston. Wally Mades went to the airforces for three years after graduation and upon coming out he hooked up with Lyle Haney andlormed the nationally known 'Hot Rodders' all Lyle married heart. Lucky for providing us with of those old time modern band. Their headquarters is at Chicago. a young Chlcagoan whiJs Wally married his higm school sweet- all of us that they brought their instruments along, thus lots of fun andmuslo. It was certainly grand to hear some pieces, especially 'Mule Train'. Warren Beohly is a prosperous farmer. The factis thathe is the nearest neighbor of Eppie andher husband. That certainly is nice as they can always talk over old times whenever they care too. Warren married one of the home town girls three years after graduation. We had noticed a little of such a future in 1950, but certainly didn't expect it to really come true. He had Abeen blessed with four little farmeraone girl and three boyawhich insures- not so much work in later years for Warren. Nellie Duellman now is the private secretary to a prominent Winona business man and is still free, fancy, and unmarried. Can't figure it out as back in the old days it was very evident that soon she would have a hus- band. However, maybe the story of the next senior will help to explain. The only one of us that was unable to c me for the great celebration was Robert Sing, who sailed for Hawaii a month after his graduation. Some of the kids received letters from him,and it seems that he is now the owner of a large pineapple plantation. After graduation Paul Kafer went back to his former home, Littleport, Iowa,-where he married his childhood sweetheart. Paul now owns a large and prosperous shoe store. He says he also has five little shoe-makers to help him. Thus we all went our own way in life again, probably never to meet all together. we really had a grand time and lots of old memories were brought back to our minds. 13 J Q K2 fe Q Q 65 9 wwwgxggmsymgm if g' 4, x Z Q Always-- SQNGS THAT REMIND US It's Been a Long, Long Time ---- - In the Good Old Summer Time----- By the Light of the Silvery Moon The Stars Will Remember--- ----- - April Showers -------- --- ----- --- ---- ------------ ------------ Our Alma Mater were freshmen --Vacation ------------------------------Prairie Moon - ------- ------ ------ Since we -- ------ ----- - --------------- --Prom of '49 -------------------------------Prom of '50 lrnis Is The Army------------- ---------------------------------- ---Celia H- Mary Lou So in Love ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- Someday- opgoogqg--mucus-qpognnq That's for Me--------- ----- ----- Don't Cry, Joe- -------------- --- Hang on the Bell, Nellie -------- Dear Hearts and Gentle Peop1e--- I Said M Pajamas and Glimbed In Jealous Heart -------- - ------ ---- Put Your Arms Around Me ----- ---- It's Love, Love, Love ---- - ----- - Seeing Nellie Home-------------- Slipping New That Somebody So Tired I Get Up Skirts-- Ubhb Donut---Q 1 Need You----- ------- Q ------ -- ----------- ------ -----------------------------Warren Bechly ------------------------Wally and La Vonne --------- ------------Kenny and Betty Jean ----------------------------------Diplomas ----------------------------Mr. Biersteker -----------f---------------------Wynell D. -----------------------------Fountain City to My Prayers -------------- --After a dance --------------------------------John Brose -- ----- - ----- - ---- - ------------- Paul Kafer -------------On school bus from B.B. games -------------------------------Robert Sing -------------------------------Hr.

A dingyl basement has been transformed with almost magical suddenness into a glistening area of chrome and white. Mrs. Vern Hendrickson, wife of the Buffalo County Agent, was persuaded to take up teaching duties again and become the instructor in this new and fascinating department at Fountain City High School. Under her supervision, girls .have already come to feel right at home in their new surroundings, which are set up as two complete kitchens, with room for eight girls to a section. Stoves of all types are available-apartment size, full size, gas and electric. There are two apartment size stoves and two regular size, two sinks, a hot water heater, a refrigerator and built-in cabinets in places ordinarily left as waste space in a room. Under contracts set up by the school, the stoves will be replaces as new models are turned out, assuring that classes will have the most modern of equipment at all times. Across the room are four new electric sewing machines, with several large sewing tables. Built into one corner is a fitting room,with full-size mirrors--three of them--that fold un into a closet when not in use. The kitchen units have been designed by the state as the mostefficient type now being planned. Blueprintsdrawn to statespecifications were carried into actuality by a local contractor,Adolph Schwark, and the cupboards were built by the H.8F. Roettiger firm. A style show and tea was presented December 21, 1949, when the girls were given a chance to model clothes made in the new sewing room. SHOP Much of this year wasspent in building up the shop under the direction of Mr. Martin, our shop instructor. Benches were constructed at the beginn- ing of the year,and as soon as the machinery arrived, a number of boys vol- unteered to set it up. The electric tools now consistof an eight inch table saw, a jig saw, a lathe, a jointer, a portable sander,and a home-made table sander. There is still room for a drill press and an emery'wheel which we hope will be added in the near future. JUNIOR-SENIOR PRQM 'The.Stars Will Remember' was chosen as the themesong for the Junior- Senior Prom of 1949. Dancing wasfrom nine o'clock to one o'clock withmusic by Henry Burton and his orchestra. The grand march was led by Prom King Warren Bgchly and Queen Jo Ann Richtman. The prom was presented by the juniors under the supervision of Mrs. S.C.
