ideas which all Freshmen possess, and thrilled to death because we could now choose our subjects to suit ourselves, and our interests. As we began that year, our class advisors were “The Burrells " . We started that adventurous year with Aurelia Alaria, Bruce Barker, Dorothy Beatty, Shirley Blackney, Jim Bolton, Leon Book, Frank Hasty, Frank Bowen, Bob Bradley, Martha Brown, Jim Call, Sharon Champion, Duane Doty, Don Haist, Dave Henson, Edwin Horn, Dena Imus, Harriet Johnston, Howard Kimball, Nellie Knetsch, Carol Knight, Ted Lewis, Jerry Lorio, Doris Martin, Doris Meade, Norma Neifert, Dale Scott, Joan Streling, Jim Tibbitts, John Turson, and Eleanor Welling. After having a rip-roaring time and seeing to it that nearly all the teachers in high school had started to get their gray hair, we entered our Sophomore year with a very spirited feeling. This year Edwin Horn, Howard Kimball, and Bob Bradley left us and we added Arlene Collins, Bob Crawford, John Cutler, Marcelin Day, Patty Dunnithan, Mary Dunn, Bob Godde, Elizabeth Hollaway, Henry Johnson, Edith Jones, Doris Manning, Dave Noud, Donann Pate, Christene Perkins, Jeanette Pervine, Mary Richardson, Marvin Richardson, Raymond Sharp, Harry Shirley, Martha Smith, Dick Sosinski, Gene Stuifbergen, and Imogene Pate, thus making our class about twice as large as before. This year we started taking more interest in making money for our Senior trip. However, we still managed to get a lot of fooling around done also, but as a whole we had a great year. Then there was the three months vacation ending again and we found ourselves back in school for our Junior year. That year Arlene Collins and Dick Sosinski moved away and Frank Hasty joined the Air Force, and Imogene Pate, Marcelin Day, and Shirley Blackney decided they wanted a ' Full-time Job , instead of an education. In place of those we lost, we gained Kingsley Newcombe, and Bob (Let s take a vote on it) Sharp. During that year we had many new and different experiences, among them the Prom and the Play. However, by May and even before that, we were ready for a vacation, most of us planning to work. When school once more took up in the Fall, we lost Carol Knight, Ted Lewis, Bob Crawford, Harry Shirley, Mary Dunn, and Donann Pate. And we gained Ruth Dean and Jack Jordan. This year we really lived it up!!! We really thought we were Big Shots!!! pur graduating class of 1953 will be Aurelia Alaria, Bruce Barker, Dorothy Beatty, Jim Bolton, Leon Book, Frank Bowen, Jim Call, Sharon Champion, John Cutler, Duane Doty, Patty Dunithan, Bob Godde Ruth Dean, Don Haist, Dave Henson, Elizabeth Hollaway, Dena Imus, Harriet Johnston _e nry Johnson Jack Jordan, Edith Jones, Nellie Knetsch, Jerry Lorio, Doris Manning, Doris Martin, Doris Meade Dave Noud, Norma Neifert, Kingsley Newcombe, Christene Perkins, Jeanette Pervine, cry Richardson, Marvin Richardson, Dale Scott, Raymond Sharp, Bob Sharp, Gene Stuifbergen, Martha Smith, Jim Tibbitts, John Turson, and Eleanor Welling.

We as the Class of 53 will and bequeath all our good times at Galesburg-Augusta High to all the Underclassmen. We, the class of 1953, do declare the above to be its solemn Last Will and Testament Class Prophecy It ' s a beautiful day and the class of ‘53 seems to have planned a picnic-reunion. And, as at most public meetings, there is a main speaker. I am the speaker here, me, Father Time. As I look over the athletic field where the reunion is being held I see different little groups of people gathering together and discussing ‘old times " as it has been nearly ten years since they were last together at Graduation. Glancing through the crowd I see Franlin ‘Boggie " Bo en; he has just been appointed principal of the Galesburg-Augusta High School. Standing beside him is his quiet, efficient, little secretary, Patricia Dunithan. Off to one side I see Henry Johnson, talking to Bruce Barker, proprietor of the three restaurants in Galesburg, about his latest dish-washing machine invention. Doris Manning and her five offspring are just arriving, and are greeted by Christene Perkins who is telling them of just finishing her probationary training in her nursing career. Bob Sharp didn’t quite make it inside the gates and is tinkering with his car, trying to find out what made it run. Ray Sharp, his cousin, came with him and he too is baffled by the car’s good running condition (or was before it broke down,) and he should know, being a big automobile producer. Eleanor Welling, | see, is talking to Ruth Dean, editor of a ‘Love-Lorn Column " of the Galesburg Argus, about all her dates with Carl and they are deciding upon a good wedding date and all the trimmings. A few minutes ago I heard an airplane circling about in the sky. It finally landed in a nearby field, and the first one off is Sharon Champion, one of the new Hollywood starlets. Here comes a big shiny red Cadillac convertible, Stepping out on to the running board is Dena Jean Imus, now a Big Bank Executive, all dressed up in a fancy pair of pedal pushers and a silver blouse. I see the Upjohn Special Bus driving up now and dragging off are two puny-looking girls whorr I recognize as Dorothy Beatty and Qoris Martin. During the course of the day | see they will plan to take their pills, as they both carry some with them. Since it is a picnic and everyone brings something to eat, all of a sudden | smell a peculiar odor coming from the section of the tables where the food is. Seems Duane Doty, the Big Time Scientist, has just cooked up something he expects the crowd to eat and test for him. As Nellie Knetch, the famous basketball player, arrives she is greeted by Marvin Richardson, square dance caller. They must be discussing old times at the dull school dances. Glancing throughout the crowd again I see Harriet Johnston has just arrived back from Europe, where she has been studying the English Litera¬ ture. After the picnic she is going on a lecture tour of all the countries. Standing with a bunch of gals is Kingsley Newcombe; even in school he was always quite the ladies ' man. At one of the smaller tables I see four fellows through a cloud of smoke. From here they look like Jim Tibbits, Don Haist, Jerry Lorio, and Dave Noud playing cards, just like old times. (Poker, no doubt!) I notice Jim Bolton has appeared with his little blonde wife and their twin boys; from the looks of things they aren’t too easy to manage. Over with the cooks is Doris Meade, owner of the restaurant that Henry Johnson invented the dish-washing machine for. She is busy talking and doesn ' t notice anyone as of yet. Out on the field is Norma Neifert, World Woman ' s Golf Champion, showing an admiring group some of her techniques. Aurelia Alaria just ran in the gate carrying a bunch of white roses, the class flower, that she raised from her now famous Floral Gardens. I just heard a rattle of milk cans and who should drive up but Leon Book owner of the famous L- Bar-B Ranch. Elizabeth Hollaway just came marching onto the field, looking very slick in her Wave uniform. Guess she must have been just promoted to Lieutenant. She is greeted by Edith Jones, secretary of the Bob Godde Insurance Company. Sounds like she is trying to sell Liz some insurance for sea-sickness. Bob Godde, who has just joined them, is trying to convince Liz of his good (?) insurance. You ' ve all certainly heard of the book that author Gene Stuifbergen wrote about the Civil War. I heard it was a best seller. Well, anyway, Gene has just arrived! From the University of Michigan comes John Turson, star full back on the football squad. Dale Scott, another football star from Michigan State, is talking with him. Jack Jordan, another Grandma Moses, is busy sketching Mary Richardson, an alert student of his; she doesn ' t do so badly herself. see where Jim Call, well-known garbage collector of Galesburg and vicinity, has just arrived in his new disposal unit truck. Quite the thing! I heard the click of a shutter and glancing up, I see Dave Henson photographing pictures of the picnic for the Kalamazoo Gazette. Lover boy Cutler (John, that is has just arrived with his many women from Plainwell and Otsego trailing behind him. Augusta ' s telephone operator, Jeanette Pervine, called in to say she might be a little late, but she would be there before too long. Luella Martha Smith Parsons is busy with her microphone, collecting old gossip of the ' class of 53 " over the GAHS Broadcasting System. And that, dear readers, concludes the picnic of the " Class of 53 This is Father Time, signing off!
