Out of a class of 22, who enrolled at that time only 7 members will graduate with the class this year. They are Margaret Bell, Mary Cutler, Virginia Kirk, Jack Knetsch, Genevieve Perkins, Jean Conor, and Shirley Smith. At the beginning of our next year, the only new member was Darlene Darrow. Everyone seemed to get along with each other, so no one left us. The next year we found ourselves in the hands of Miss Lunekey. The following students were our chums and classmates: Donald Austin, Margaret Bell, Dennis Bresson, Jean Conor, Mary Cutler, Darlene Darrow, Willa Fitzpatrick, Howard Kimball, Virginia Kirk, Alice Klepper, Jack Knetsch, Alan Fry, Billy Gumtow, Marcella Henson, June Monroe, Genevieve Perkins, Harry Shirley, Neldon Spencer, Barbara Weaver, Mary Jane VanAvery, Arthur Gregg, Richard Raison, Shirley Smith, Duane Srackangast, Joan Pierman, John Reardon, Marilyn Norton, Nelda Jensen, Mary Jane Lucas, Edna Dowling, Tom Hamilton, Albert Meyers, Harriet Yound, Frank Morris, and Jim Hayney. In our third year, as we really began to get acquainted with the other members of the class, Miss Kugel took over. The class enrollment remained the same as it had been in the second grade, except for the loss of Jim Hayney, who left us to go to Richland. As we entered the fourth grade we were quite shocked, Mrs. Snow really clamped down on us. But she wasn’t as bad as we had expected. However. this year we added 8 new members they were: Ron Block, Clayton Cline, Richard Dick, Cleta Holbrook, Ron Ingraham, Beverly Winkler and Joyce Hewitt. This made a total of 32 members. During our fifth year Richard Dick and Beverly Weaver decided that they no longer liked our company, so they left to go to another school. But in their places came Alan Fry and Jim Newsted. Mrs. Livingston was our teacher. In our sixth year our school term was saddened quite a bit by the death of one of our classmates Joan Pierman. Mrs. Howell was our teacher. During this year we had a few more additions to the class. They were, Howard Kimball, Norma Langs, Joan Proudfit, Bill Schrieber, and Jack Love. As we came back to school this year we were quite excited as we entered Junior High with our class, consisting of, Fred Baldwin, Margaret Bell, Ron Block, Gene Book, Barbara Bullard, Wanda Burton, Dick Carter, Don Chiverton, Jean Conor, Mary Cutler, Darlene Darrow, Robert Doty, Ronald Fitzpatrick, Willa Fitzpatrick, Alan Fry, Billy Guntow, Marlene Harley, Joyce Hewitt, Cleta Holbrook, Ron Ingraham, Howard Kimball, Virginia Kirk, Jack Knetsch, Norma Lang, Forrest Lantis, Jack Love, Lorretta Lowe, Marilyn Norton, Genevieve Perkins, Joan Proudfit, Lois Reams, Duane Srackangast, Bill Schrieber, Shirley Smith, Jack Tibbetts, and Mary Jane Van Avery. During the eighth grade the only thing that changed was our class advisors the class remained the same. As we entered the ninth grade we were quite excited and scared too, as we had heard so much about school initiations but as it turned out we had nothing to worry about. The only new persons that came were Jackie Ball and Mary Lou Newton, otherwise the class remained the same. Our class advisors were Mr. Norlin and Mrs. Edwards. 14 During our Sophomore year Mary Jane Van Avery and Virginia Kirk left us. But in their place came Barbara Stewart, Ella Wortinger, Virginia Griffith, Jo Stecker and Shirley Smith. Shirley decided she just couldn ' t get along without us so she came back to graduate with our class. Mrs. Edwards and Mr. Swanson were our class advisors. As we entered our Junior year, our interests were centered mostly on the fact we would get our class rings and the Junior-Senior Prom. Our class advisors were Mr. Swanson and Mrs. Edwards. Next came the year we had all been working and waiting for we have reached our final goal, we are Seniors. This year we were put to the test of being able to co-operate as 15 Augusta students came to Galesburg because of the crowded conditions at their school. This made a total of 40 graduating students. They are as follows: Marian Allen, Joyce Bailey, Jackie Ball, Margaret Bell, Joanne Brown, Wanda Burton, Patsy Chapman, Jean Conor, Mary Cutler, Darlene Darrow, Eddie Deview, Robert Doty, Robert Duggan, Marianne Eldridge, Joan Flach, Norma Gordon, Ethel Halliwill, Marlene Harley, Ruby Hines, Cleta Holbrook, Doug Holdridge, Ron Ingraham, Virginia Kirk, Jack Knetsch, Jack Love, Loretta Lowe, Genevieve Perkins, Lois Reams, Arthur Richardson, John Rogers, Grethel Shafer, Clara Smith, Leo Smith, Shirley Smith, Duane Srackangast, Gene Stewart, George Tennant, Doris Waldorf, Bruce White, and Ella Wortinger. So now we close the book of our school days at G.H.S. and they become only memories that will always be remembered. The activities, our teachers, and most of all our friendships. Some day as we look back they will be remembered as the best years of our lives. So, we say to all of you good-bye and good luck. A Day With The Class of 5T On the morning of May 13, 1961, my BRUCE WHITE inventions robot; after having shut the window, fixed the shades, started the coffee, and turned on the radio; awoke me; The peaceful quiet of early morning was suddenly shattered by an argument in the alley. The milkman, LEO SMITH, and the garage man, JACK LOVE, were at it again. Ho Hum. My robot brought me the paper which was delivered faithfully by BOB DUGGAN, JR. every morning. JOHN ROGERS came with the mail shortly afterwards. While I was drinking my seventh cup of coffee, flavored with cream from the INGRAHAM CREAMERY, the phone rang. It was RUBY, as usual, greatly concerned about little Eggbert’s marks in school. She asked me to visit the principal, MARGARET BELL, with her at 9:30. Margaret advised us to talk to Eggbert’s teacher, JOANNE BROWN. After our session, we decided to look ever the school. We ran into JACKIE in the gymnasium, coaching the girls’ basketball team. MARIANNE rushed in, sobbing wildly, ’’The music class is too much for me.’ I’m going crazy! 1 can’t take any more!” and turned to Ruby for consolation. Leaving Ruby gently patting Mattie on the back, I went to pick up two old class¬ mates, MARILYN TENNANT, (whose husband GEORGE had decided to make a career of the army) and VIRGINIA Tussing to make a shopping trip downtown. On our way, I stop¬ ped to pick up my other car, a 1961 Cadillac convertible, which I had purchased from BRESSON’S Famous Auto Mart, with its electronic controlled gas pumps. Our first stop was the Stewart Building, owned by GENE STEWART, famous millionaire playboy, to buy some stock from DOUG HOLDRIDGE, whose office was there and who was a successful stock broker. Upon entering, JO FLACH, the Recep¬ tionist, casually removed her feet from the desk and asked us to have a chair. Seated at the typewriter was GEN PERKINS, with a stack of forms in one hand and a full wastebasket in the other. She was ready to break into tears and told us that this was the one hundred and eleventh time that she had typed the same thing over to please Doug. ELLA WORTINGER rushed up with three shorthand books full of letters. She handed them to Gen, who threw up her hands and left the office with MARLENE, another secretary, trailing after her. WANDA, switchboard operator, said she just received a call from EDDIE DEVIEW, who was the teen-age idol. He was looking for a good investment. It was at this time that Doug walked in and started to crack a whip, so we left. After escaping from Doug’s office, we went to a late lunch at an out of the way Italian Restaurant. As we waited for our lunch, which was served by MARY CUTLER, we thought we would enjoy hearing some of our favorite popular recordings We played ”On a Slow Jet to Mars” by the Moonbeams, PAT, DORIS, and LORETTA, and then heard DARLENE DARROW’S arrangement of ’’Atomic Blues”. At a small table in the corner we spotted Gene and a mysterious blonde. It looked if they were having an argument, but just then our food came and when we looked again, they were gone. After lunch, we continued with our shopping and ended up at a fashion show. CLARA welcomed us and told us that she had just been promoted to a position as floor manager. Two clerks, SHIRLEY and ETHEL, showed us to our seats. Sitting a short distance away were NORMA and GRETHEL, with their husbands. We watched each model and noticed among them, MlCKfeY ALLEN , one of the John Robert Powers leading models. We made our last purchase anti decided to return home. 16 Once outside, our attention was immediately attracted by the shouting of newsboys. Gene had been Kidnapped. ' We quickly bought a newspaper and read that Chief-of-Police, JACK KNETSCH , had his most valuable men working on the case. The chief suspect was ARTHUR RICHARDSON, Bookie, better known to police and the underworld as Richie the Rat. DOTY the Dip, Richie ' s best known stooge, is also being sought for questioning. It is believed by the police that Richie ' s girl, Doll BAILEY, has some connection with the case. She is a blonde torch-singer at The Roadside dafe. Also under suspicion is WESLEY BURRELL, an escapee from the state hospital. He was formerly a brilliant teacher but was committed shortly after the graduation of the Class of 51. Very worried, I listened to all news broadcasts. About 10 o ' clock, it was announced that Gene had been found and rushed to the hospital by DUANE SR AC KANGAST, ambul¬ ance driver, and is under the care of two capable nurses, LOIS ktAMS and JEAN CONOR. It is believed that the new miracle medicine, discovered by CLETA 6LBROOK, win- save his life. By this time I was a nervous wreck, so, as I finished by 60th cup of coffee, I staggered off to bed. Student Activities The first assembly of the year, we had a speaker that talked on Russia. He had been there several times. We all found Ivan Ivanavitch Sheriff very interesting. He made us all think a lot more seriously about the evils of Communism. Just before Christmas Vacation, the Student Council brought in a horse act with the star named Star-Baby. It was very interesting and entertaining for most of the students. Early in January the first party of the school year was held. It was sponsored by the Student Council with each class responsible for ttye music, refreshments, entertain¬ ment, etc. Co-operation of the students in the way of attendance wasn ' t very good, but otherwise it was a fine party. Later, a man who had been with Admiral Byrd on his trip to the South Pole, talked to us about his trip and showed us various souvenirs which he had collected. Student opinion was taken on this assembly and it seemed to be the general agreement of the student body that this was the type assembly they would like in the future. With a Senior dance in March, added to the Prom and Banquet in April, the year ended with a feeling of satisfaction of a year filled with not only education but also a good number of entertaining activities. 17 Class Will Marlene Harley wills and bequeaths her quiet manner to the entire eighth grade.
