MAROON GOLD We dedicate this book to our parents for their sacrifices and understanding that has made it possible for us to graduate and pre¬ pare us for the future. 2 Class History The class of " ’50 " started its long climb one fall day in the year 1937. It is rather inter¬ esting to note that of all those who started that year, only the following members will graduate. They are Francis Bell, Russell Howes, Norman Crittenden, Nick Carson, Jim Freer, Stanley Haist and Carolyn Wagner. Dick Wheaton and Lula Jane Holston joined us in the second grade, after an uneventful first grade encounter. Alice Wearmouth left us this year to take part in the social life in Otsego. Then in September of 1940, we started our third year. Miss Olive Kugel was our teacher. We started the year with Alex Banghart, Francis Bell, Tom Brennan, La France Bresson, Phyllis Bunce, Nick Carson, Don Chiverton, Ray Councell, Norman Crittenden, Ronald Fitzpatrick, Jim Freer, Stanley Haist, Frances Hendrick, Lula Jane Holston, Roger Horn, Russell Howes, Loretta Lowe, Shirley Rawlson, Dick Wheaton and David Neal. Before the year ended we added Sylvia Knight to our roll call. Tom Hamilton, George Hoover and Frances Hendrick left at the end of the year. In the fourth grade Jack Tibbitts and Dick Perkins seemed to like Mrs. Snow pretty well and stayed over another year just to be in our class. We also added Giles Burton, David Frank, Lenore Isham, Allen Palmer and Richard Walsh. But Richard evidently didn ' t like our company so he left in the third week of school. Phyllis Bunce must have had the same idea be¬ cause she left a short time later. Carolyn Lance and Susan Smathers joined us, but left a few weeks later. David Neal decided he would rather attend a school in Kalamazoo so he left us that year also. We ended our fourth year with a total of twenty-four students. During the fifth and sixth grades there were a few changes. Tom Brennan and Lula Jane Holston left us and Carolyn Wagner rejoined the class; she left previously at the beginning of the third grade. Joan Keown also joined us. Stanley McMickle fell madly in love with Mrs. Livingston and thusly joined our class. Lenore Isham left us at the end of the sixth grade. Mrs. Sauer was our teacher for that grade. The seventh grade was really a big year. We had jumped from the grades into Junior High School. We found it a little difficult to get used to the new surroundings, but at the end of the year, most of the teachers realized that we weren ' t as bad as we looked. Mrs. Livingston couldn ' t stand to be left behind so she moved up with us and became our advisor for that year. Charles and Max Harrison left during the year and Barbara Melvin took their place. Finding ourselves seated in the eighth grade, we decided that we should be better, but we had quite a hard time convincing Miss Willets that we were reformed characters. Leaving Jack Tibbitts and Stanley McMickle behind to suffer, we added eight new members to our class. They were Sidney and Gerry Geddings, Louise Book, Guy Rundio, Reggy Kissenger, Gus Klahn and Harlan Yager. Mrs. Morrison was our class advisor. After a hard struggle of eight long years we finally made it into high school. This year most of the boys went out for football. We can still hear ' em talking about how tough the coach was during practice. Some of the kids found that they couldn ' t take the stiff schedule this year and left in the middle of the first term. They were Jim Haney, Roger Horn, Giles Burton, Joan Keown, Harlan Yager and Shirley Rawlson. Sylvia Knight also left to go to Portage. Rodger Offet and Charles Short came to take their places. Our tenth year brought few changes, although we did gain a few new members. Sylvia de¬ cided that s le couldn ' t get along without us, and with her came Charlie O ' Brien, Clair Belland, James Gillispie, Ronna Crocker and Rose Marie Pierce. Rose Marie left in November along with Merle Allen, who had also joined us that year. We rounded out the year with twenty-one students. Then came our all important Junior year. Mr. Elmore was our advisor this year, and with his help and advice we were able to tuck away quite a sum of money for our Senior year. This year some of us had the notion that we might be competition for Hollywood. We decided to show everyone by putting on a play, with Mr. Benjamin as our director. We also enter¬ tained the Seniors with a prom and banquet. Guy and Russell decided that they needed a va¬ cation, so they both took a trip to Florida, returning before the year was over. Ronna Crocker attended school off and on, but finally resigned from her school work. The only new addition to our class this year was Virginia Beebe, who left at the end of the year. At last the long awaited year has arrived. We are at long last, Seniors. Our advisors for this year are Mrs. Hilliard and Mr. Tannenbaum. The graduating class of 1950, after many additions and subtractions, now consists of the following: Clair Belland, Francis Bell, Louise Book, Nick Carson, Norman Crittenden, Jim Freer, David Frank, Stanley Haist, Russell Howes, Reggy Kissenger, Sylvia Knight, Chuck O ' Brien, Rodger Offet, Dick Perkins, Guy Rundio, Carolyn Wagner and Dick Wheaton. Ray Councell left us at the end of the first semester to join the Army. So we leave Galesburg High and become members of the Alumni. But as we do so, we shall not forget the past, the games, dances, plays and most of all the friendships we have made with our fellow students and teachers. As we proceed on through life there will always be a warm spot in our hearts full of fond memories of our past high school days at Galesburg. So, good-by and good-luck to all of you.

CO-CHAMPS The Galesburg High School Rams started off their season with a roar this year instead of their usual gentle bleating. Fighting to defend their K. V. A. crown, they chalked up a rousing 25-7 victory over the Kellogg Aggies. After the rout of the Aggies, the Rams ran into much tougher opposition from Mattawan. The Wildcats took a quick lead but could not hold it as the Rams forged ahead and overpowered them to win 25-6. With a 2-0 record and perched atop the K. V. A. standings, the Rams ran into their toughest opponent of the year in the Vicksburg Bulldogs. In a seesaw battle that saw the lead change hands three times, the Rams eked out a 14-13 victory with a placement kick by Norman Crittenden. Playing in the rain and mud the Rams lost their next game to Way land 13-0. Regaining their winning ways, Galesburg dropped Portage and Colon in quick succession, 13-0 and 26-7. Then playing again on their home field, the Rams lost to their old rivals, White Pigeon, 19-7. The White Pigeon teams, by the way, are the only ones which Coach Krumpa has not been able to defeat in his three year stay here. In the real heartbreaker of the season, Galesburg lost to Comstock, 12-7, being with¬ in two feet of the winning touchdown when the gun sounded. On the whole, the season was a fairly successful one, the main trouble being the lack of reserve strength to keep the opponents running. 20 STANDING: SEATED: ABSENT: Boys 1 Basketball FIRST TEAM Norman Cirttenden, Nick Carson, Richard Wheaton, Mr. Krupa.
