First Day of School
Here We come-with faces bright
Freshfclean with healtlfs appeal
We think that weware just all right
And hope the same-you'll feel.
lt's our first day-we're not too sure-
But eager and expectant.
Hand in hand-new friends to lure
And learn to be more gallant.
Just kids today-Ngrown ups" tomorrow
So teach and mold our lives
Show us the way-to rightly grow.
Friendship-will be,-your prize.

Sam Senior, forgetting his dignity and bearing as a member of the class of
MSO", slumped down into his seat.
It was class day!
The class historian was droning on and on with a dull speech.
He was saying, "And so in the year of 1946 our ship of education was launched
by our faithful and distinguished sponsors who had called us together for our first
class meeting in the stately halls of dear old French Lick High, therefore, it was -"
and so he droned on and on - and Sam snored on and on. ln his sleep Sam went'
over the history of his class. The worn out speech of the class historian told nothing.
The history should have gone something like this:
Three years and eight months ago a group of students first set forth in Room
20 to conceive and dedicate the proposition that if the teachers could stand us, we
could stand them.
The class has made its mark on this school, especially on the study hall desks.
In 1946 the 49 dignified seniors of tofday were 73 humble, puzzled, and green
freshmen. Green, though they were, they managed to elect their candidate for the
Basketball Queen of l946f47, Norma Ann Denbo.
During their first class meeting, the class, aided by their sponsors, Mrs. Knight
and Mr. Aylsworth, elected the following class officers.
President ......................... Bernard Seybold
VicefPresident ......... . . . Richard Morgan
Secretary and Treasurer . . . . . . . . . Norma Denbo
Class Reporter ................,..... Robert Drake
The class started off their career as sophomores by electing the following off
President ............ ........ L eon Hopper
VicefPresident .......... .... N orma Ann Denbo
Secretary and Treasurer ............ Shirley Crowder
Class Reporter ........................ Mary Hicks
This year Mr. Claxton and Mrs. Lindsey, class sponsors, were on hand to help
us over the rough spots.
Try as they might, the sophomores couldn't squeeze into one room. So they
were assigned to two roomsg rooms 15 and 16.
Barbara Lynch was chosen to represent the class in the election of the l947f48
lt's September 1, 1948 and the poor, weary Sophomores of last year are firmly
entrenched in room 16, All is in readiness, for thev are preparing themselves for
the next two years in their hopeless battle for education.
This year we were placed under Mr. Wiggs and Mrs. Hamilton.
Norma Ann Denbo was selected as our candidate for basketball queen this year.
The following officers were elected to reign over us this year.
President .......,..............,.... Leon Hopper
VicefPresident . . . . . . Muriel Freeman
Secretary ..... .... N ancy Miers
Treasurer .......... ........ N orma Denbo
Class Reporter ....................... Phyllis jones
For the next five weeks the Juniors could he found each night preparing their
class play entitled "Tumblin' Creek." Although it didn't sound possible judging by
our first feeble efforts. the play was finally given November 17, The following were
in the play: Pauline Henson, Leon Hopper, Muriel Freeman, Kenneth Jones, Mick
Hagan, Martha Sue Harrison, Norma Ann Denbo, Pat Pinnick, Jackie Tarr, Lee
Hoxverton, Frankie Leonard, Phyllis Jones, Mary Hicks, Verla Flick, Norma Kellams
and Donald Clark.
EVCYY JUUIQY received one Christmas present in common, his class ring.
- Mrs. Hamilton left school at the end of the first semester to accept another
J0b- She WHS replaced by Miss Bush, who ably carried on as our cofsponsor.
Q NOW the tune for the JuniorfSenior Reception rolled around. After weeks
of-preparation the big event was near at hand. The reception was carried on in a
different way than had been customary, Huge wall murals were painted and there
was a dance .after the dinner. And so ended our junior year.
Here it was at last, the apex of our ambition. We were dignified Seniors!
'- The bigwigs elected this year were:
President ......................... Richard Morgan
VicefPresident . . ......... Jackie Tarr
Secfeta-YY ..... .. Norma Ann Denbo
Treasurer ......................... Norma Kellams
Class Reporter ....................... Phyllis Jones
The class sponsors were Mr. Wiggs and Mrs. Edwards. Q
We started out the year by electing our candidate for Basketball Queen, Mar'
tha Sue Harrison, and later won first prize for the best painted window at Hallowe'en.
Santa Claus fin the disguise of George Rosej was good to us again this year.
This time in the form of our class pictures. Some found that they were better looking
than they thought they were, and some that found they were - but let's not go
into that. ,
The next round on the Senior merryfgofround brought us to the Senior Class
Play. After a little discussion it was decided to present an English mystery entitled
"Moonstone" The following displayed their acting ability on March Sl: Verla Flick,
Norma Ann Denbo, Pat Pinnick, Frankie Leonard, Kenneth Jones, Jackie Tarr, Bob
Mills, Richard Morgan, Donald Clark, Lee Howerton, Norma Kellams, Phyllis Jones,
Mary Alice Kearby, Pauline Henson, Leon Hopper and Bernard Seybold.

In the year 1960 while working as special feature reporter and photographer
for the "All Planet Daily Newsn, I was given an assignment to Mars. After asking
a few questions I learned that the French Lick High School Class of 1950 was holding
a reunion and as there were so many famous people in the group several pages of
the paper were to be devoted to stories and pictures.
I arrived at the field early enough to watch the first celebrities board the space
rocket, and as I watched them I couldn't help but think of their rise to fame since
The first to venture up the gangway was none other than Niarguevite Anderson,
who after a humble start as a waitress in a home town cafe now owns the largest
chain of night clubs in the universe.
Arriving in a streak which proved to be a red Rolls Royce, was Brooks Bm'

beck, just in time to be the second to board the ship. He was the man who proved
that farming in Jackson Township was highly profitable.
Brooks mentioned that Walter Burton would be delayed in reaching the airport
as he was conducting a religious revival in Madison Square Garden.
Looking toward the entrance I beheld a charming lady bidding goodbye to her
devoted family. It was the former Ioann Collins, recently chosen "Model Mother of
I decided to interview the distinguished looking gentleman approaching me.
He was Donald Clark, father of modernfday printing, in which mimeographing plays
no part! I found that he was only too willing to supply me with volumes of informaf
tion. Having finished my interview I was startled to discover that the passengers
were aboard and that we were about to be launched on our journey.
Shortly after leaving the strata of air covering the earth, a fellow passenger,
Robert Drake, president of the Drake Business College, became airsick. Norma
Denbo, of the Denbo Infirmary, Newton Stewart, soon came to the aid of the ailing
After this episode I managed, with some difficulty, to strike up a conversation
with Verla Flick, who was seated next to me. She presented to me a gold bound
volume of her latest book entitled "Famous Football Stars". As I opened the book I
discovered it was dedicated to none other than one of her classmates, William Ernest
Flickner, the most outstanding football player of all time.
Since everyone was growing weary we stopped for refreshments at a satellite,
where we were pleasantly entertained by the boy with the golden voice, Fred Goldman
After a delightful evening of reminiscing, Criminal Lawyer Marion Hagan
very tactfully suggested that, since he owned a large summer estate on this satellite,
we might as well spend the night there.
Before leaving the next morning we decided to visit the local Cathedral, who
should we discover there but Virginia and Virlee Haefling. The sisters had planned
to take a space ship to Mars the following day but we managed to persuade them to
As we were about to board the ship to resume our journey, we were joined by
classmates Alta and Donald Hardin. Alta had been acting secretary to Donald who
is president of the InterfPlanetary Travel Commission.
On the last lap of the journey we were entertained by the world famous im'
personator, Donald Harris, He imitated stars of yesteryear such as Bob Hope and
Bing Crosby. He ended by asking starlet Martha Harrison to sing our old school song.
Not to be outdone by these performers, boxer Ralph Harrison challenged somef
one to a bout, but failed to arouse enthusiasm. After Ralph had sparred for a few
minutes we were very glad to hear the stewardess calmly announce for us to fasten our
safety belts for the landing on Mars.
Upon alighting from our ship we were greeted heartily by the mayor of the
capital city of Mars, Phyllis jones, now Mrs. Phyllis jones. When she decided to
marry she spent a great deal of time shopping around and finally found a man by the
name of Jones.
Our attention was then drawn to the sound of stirring music drifting from the
other end of the air field, As we approached the band stand we were amazed to see
the uHowerton Hotshotsn, conducted of course, by Lee Howerton.
As we were ushered into the jet cars that were used as taxis, we noticed that
jack Leonards name appeared on the sides. It seems that through jack's ability to
trade cars every other day he had finally acquired a great fleet of taxis.
While driving to our hotel we passed one of the local baseball stadiums. It
was just like the baseball stadiums at home but for one added point of interest. This
was the home stadium of the "Mighty Mars Men", who are coached by Richard
Morgan, and boosted in morale by that peppy cheerfleader, Miss Patricia Pinnick,
We were registering in the hotel and talking with the manager, Sam Wininger,
when we made the startling discovery that the hotel was owned by Norma 'Young
and Wa5'ne Zimmerman. Now just Mr. and Mrs. Zimmerman.
Upon remarking at the marvelous construction of the building I was pleased
tc learn that another of the famous graduating class, Kenneth jones, had constructed
That evening at eight as we assembled for the climax of our reunion in the
Emerald Room, it seemed like old times seeing the old familiar faces, To our com'
plete astonishment we were served a delicious dinner by the Class of 1951 as their
tribute to our greatness. I learned that the entire reunion would be broadcast over
station MfAfRfS, owned by Norma Kellams, whose slogan is: 'Broadcast the news
before it happens." The star announcer for this station is Franklin Leonard, who,
incidentally, got his start selling peanuts at basketball games. The only advertisement
to be carried on this great program was one advertising the Ptomaine Super Market,
owned by Leon Hopper. This advertisement was one of great art and was sung by
that rich baritone, Bernard fMotej Seybold. Could it be that this Super Market and
the local Mortician, Pauline Henson, are in some way working together.
First on the program was Cenieve Walters, now a very distinguished poet, who
began a most enjoyable evening by reciting her masterpiece, "Ode To The Class Ci
'5O1'. This was followed by the L'Singing Vagabond Quartetteu, composed of jean
Royer, Norma Kerby, Don Wilkinson and Robert Mills, who gave with a new rendif
tion of our class song. 1
This ended my assignment on these famous people, and by interviewing one
of the guests I learned that some of the members were not present.
Among those not present was Mary Kearby who is now the owner of a beauty
salon in New York City, "The West Side Face Lifter."
Lois Mathers and Delores Palmer, as missionaries are trying to instill their
ideas of civilization in the minds of the inhabitants of Pluto.
just outside the city is the wellfknown Simmons Poultry farm, owned by Gene
and Marlin Simmons. Dut to the fact that they had just developed a new breed of
chickens that lay golden eggs, they were much too excited to attend.
Ilene Smith has become a noted home economist and has established a school
for underfprivileged girls in japan, where she is teaching them how to make and care
for a home.
jack Tarr is very busy completing the blue print of a new sixfstory school
building fequipped with elevatorsj to be constructed between French Lick and West
Baden. We learn that Rena Lee jackson is to coach the world champ girls' basketball
team of the new school.
After years of debating the merits of the Dodge and Chevrolet, Marvin
Thompson and Ivan Wineinger have finally compromised by combining ideas and are
now manufacturing a super new car, the i'Thompinger."
Glenn Walters and Carl Riley just recently heard of Davy jones' Locker. Now
they are on their way to the South Seas, where they hope to make their fortune by
recovering the treasure they believe the locker contains.
As we parted to board ships that would take us back to our various stations
in life, the strains of "Till We Meet Again" were wafted to us on the soft evening
breeze. Looking over the smiling faces we knew that the smiles were just a reflection
of the warm glow around the heart of each person, because they had once again been
reunited with old and true friends, Surely each must be thinking-'Lhow great this
reunion", and even though we be separated by space these friendships we had revived
would never be broken.

The Class of 1951 started the school year with an enrollment of 63. The
first major activity of the year was the class play, "Take Your Medicine", which was
presented on November 16. The popularity of the play is demonstrated by the ticket

We will work to promote the welfare of children and youth,
In the HOME:
By raising the standards of home life through improved family living, offering
opportunities for parents to gain self confidence as they obtain the necessary knowf
ledge to do a better job, creating experiences that draw parents and children closer
together, recapturing those values that give dignity and worth to the individual mem'
bers of the family.
In the SCHOCL:
By bringing into closer relation the home and the school through intelligent cof
operation, emphasizing the school's responsibility to share with the home the continuing
education of youth, as it relates to human behavior, encouraging parents and other
citizens to assume their full share of responsibility for the financial support of public
education and for a participating interest in it.
Through the CHURCH :
By securing for youth the highest advantages in spiritual education, strengthenf
ing his moral and ethical standards so that he may function at the highest possible
level, partcipating in church activities as a family, developing programs designed to
serve family needs, in the realization that "The home is the greatest teacher, and the
church has the greatest teachings."
In the COMMUNITY:
By coordinating the thinking, energies, and plans of all groups working with
children, assuming the duty of seeing that every child becomes a well balanced, emo'
tionally strong and constructive member of society, becoming informed about existing
child welfare legislation in the field, and the importance of eternal vigilance in seeing
that good laws are enforced and bad ones repealed.
In conclusion, we recognize the development of public attitudes favorable to
our professed belief in the rights of all children everywhere is paramount for the
Parent Teacher movement. It is our efforts in our communities that will contribute
to the sum total of all endeavors toward our common goal of world understanding and
security. To establish peace in the world we must begin at our own doorstep.
