Lrsten now IU solemn wonder
As my story I shall tell
Once a class of D1gn1f1ed Semors
Wlthm the halls of F H S drd dwell
L1sten carefully whlle I tell you
Of the1r deeds both great and small
Thus I 11 put them here 1n wrmng
So that years hence we may recall
Let us mentlon flrst the presrdent
ROBERTA HOUSTON you wlll say
She her farthful band of semors
Led toward graduatron day
In her three years as presrdent
V1ce presrdents two had she
OTTO WUETHRICH and BILLY BEISWANGER
D1d they help her? Yes slr ee'
In the1r frnal year of schoollng
Otto kept the records true
Whxle KAY KOEBCKE as the secretary
VIRGINIA El-IRLICH was our reporter
A regular fem1n1ne Wlnchell was s e
If a Feller pulled a boner
It was rtght there rn prrnt to see
There was among our classmates
A g1rl by the name of IRENE
And also a fellow named FRED
Who wrth her was always seen
RAY CORY was edrtor of the Banner
And I tell you that paper was some
W1th CORINNE SANDERS as able asslstant
Ray was pralsed to Kmgdom Come'
There was also a g1rl named DONNA
Her brother was rn our class too
But now that 54 has amved
KENNETH and DONNA wrll soon say adreu
In our class was an ARNOLD and GERALD
ELSTON and KRUGER you know
And also a HAROLD JOHNSTON
Who drove a black Ford so slow
PAT HOUSTON and CHARLENE ROGERS
Were two of our classmates dear
We shall th1nk of them so often
And wrsh that they d always be near
HERMAN SMIDLER and CHRIS LEE WUETHRICH
Were two of the semor boys
And 1f you heard them srngmg
You d say II wasn t just nolse
MARCIA FARNEY and BERTHA GARLING
Were dear frlends good and true
And everywhere one would go
The other would be there too
BOB HARTUNG and CARL ANDERSON
Both were our classmates too
They both seemed rather happy
And then there were two other grrls
BURNETT and FISHER I do declare
ARLOS was always the qulet type
Bur you always knew JACKIE was there
There rema1ns but DONNA ROCKWELL,
LILLIAN GUTWEIN and GLORIA GETZ oo
Our class started out somewhat larger
But the rest just d1dn t come through
So my story now IS ended
And the class of 54
In the halls ofFrancesv1l1e Hlgh School
We shall m1ss forevermore

The lessons the play are over at last
But we llnger awhlle at the door
For the world presses on to the work of the day
And we know as we turn our faces away
We'll pass through these halls no more
The teachers we know may vamsh away
The frxends we have made w11l be gone
But our love w1ll ab1de and 1n memory we ll see
Our Alma Mater as mt used to be
