COMPLIMENTS OF LEWIS DRUG STORE COMPLIMENTS OF COX GRILL COMPLIMENTS OF EYERLY GROCERY STORE GQJS Jlglsfory In the fall of '52, 25 promising young students entered Gardner High School, and were duly initiated by the senior class, who also treated us to an all school party. The class officers were: President, Bob West, Vice President, Carl Gordong Secretary, Martha Boyd, Treasurer, Barbara Ormsby, We had several class parties. Our class sponsor was Mr. Ralph Wedd. The king and queen candidates for the senior carnival were Bob West and Delores Dye. New students were Lawrence Harrison and Ethel Nelson. Those who left us at the end of our freshman year were Barbara Bell, Darlene Bell, Martha Boyd, and Carroll Dohrn. In our second year, the usual number of good times were had. Our class officers were: President, Carl Gordon, Vice President, Marilyn l-loffineg Secretary, Theresa Van Goethemg Treasurer, Mary Ethel Klamm. We chose for our class sponsor, this year, Mr, Dale Jones, The candidates for carnival king and queen were Carl Gor- don and Marilyn Laquet, Our homecoming candidate was Barbara Ormsby. This year we had a cheerleader chosen from our class, she was Marilyn Hoffine. The sopho- more girls also served at the Junior-Senior Banquet. Our junior year started off with a bang! We proved ourselves good salesmen by selling magazines for the Collier Magazine Campaign, The high salesmen decided to give awards to the class. We also sold pencils with the basketball schedule on the side. That was also the year we were to give the Seniors a prom and banquet, We chose, 'Chapel in the Moonlight" for the them of our prom, Our class officers were: President, Mary Ethel Klammg Vice President, Bob West, Secretary, Marilyn Laquet, Treasurer, Georgie Dana, Our class sponsors were Mrs. Thelma Skinner, and Mr. Conrad Bowen. The carnival king and queen candidates were Larry Clark and Barbara Ormsby, and our homecoming candidate was Barbara Ormsby. Again there were cheerleaders chosen from our class: they were: Marilyn Hoffine and Barbara Ormsby. Our junior play titled, 'Leave It to the Girls, " went off pretty well, too, All in all, the only thing we didn't like about our junior year, was that we lost two students, Roy Thomas and Sharleen Stewart, but we also gained one, Roxy Crane. In our last year, we initiated the "Green Freshies' into GHS and gave them a party on the evening of the same day. We have chosen for our class officers, President, Georgie Danag Vice President, John Velisquezg Secretary, Theresa Van Goethemg Treasurer, Mary Ethel Klammg Class Reporter, Barbara Ormsbyg Sergeant-of-Arms, Bob West. Our class sponsors are Mr. Conrad Bowen and Mr. Edward Gaughan.

Marilyn Hoffine, Marilyn Laquet, Jerry Neal, Ethel Nelson, Barbara Ormsby, Larry Pierce, Gary Rush, Myrna Shreve, Rogene Stemple, Gene Stricker, Theresa Van Goethem, John Velasquez, and Bob West. We only lost two students our senior year, and they were Wayne Murray, and Carl Gordon. We are looking forward to our Senior trip, play, camival, class night, Baccalaureate services, and then finally, Commencement! COMPLIMENTS OF GRIFFIN HARDWARE STORE 77 09122 When we entered Gardner High School four long years ago The time toward graduation seemed to tick away so slow. The preparations over nowg our school days all are past, And here we stand, approaching life's long curving road, at last. Back on our high school years each one of us will fondly gaze And find that these were actually our truly "heavenly days." With glimpses of the memories which we hold as a class We marvel now at how the time so quickly had to pass. Freshman initiation was a feared and dreaded day Each one of us poor Freshies had to dress a certain way. Sophisticated sophomores on the following year Still we were underclassmen to the Seniors we do fear. Our Junior Prom and banquet was enjoyed much by all No finer had been given that one could well recall April fourteenth was the date that we set, For 'Chapel in the Moonlight," we'll never forget. As dignified seniors our year's story we'll relate And mention first the senior prom as a most important date. This entertainment furnished by the class that's just behind us Has helped to draw us closer, and to their hearts entwined us. Our Senior Celebrations were loaded full with fun And each Senior was included, left out not a single one. Graduation from G.H.S, we all love so dear We always will recall the days we spent together here, Our teachers and our parents a debt we'll always owe And through our life our gratitude we'll ever try to show. So from the Class of '56, farewell to each and all From us a wish for happiness strong, and wide, and tall High school days for each of us come to an end this year But graduation isn't sadg it means a new career. Ohm ZQJ17f We, the Senior Class, being of sound mind and body, do hereby make the following bequests To Lois Ahlenstorf, we leave Roxy Crane's position on the office force. To Phyllis Andrew, we leave Rogene Stemple's talkativeness. To Glenn Bonar, we leave Larry Clark's athletic ability. To Judy Clark, we leave Jerry Nea1's wittiness around GHS. To Jack Cloud, we leave Georgie Dana's hair styles. To Bob Cordell, we leave Marilyn I-loffine's lasting romance. To Mary Beth Davis, we leave Myrna Shreve's giggles. To Henry Davis, we leave Mary Ethel Klamm's school spirit. To Victor Fonseca, we leave Gary Rush's seat in American History. To Fred Garcia, we leave Barbara Ormsby's leadership ability. To Cread Hogan, we leave Larry Pearce's car techniques. To Sue Jensen, we leave Charlotte Cloud's sweet singing voice. To Norlea Klamm, we leave Theresa Van Goethem's 'foot juggling ways." To Wayne Knabe, we leave the freshman girls, favor of Gene Stricker. To Bill Leeker, we leave John Velasquez's shyness toward girls. To Myron Plank, we leave Dorris Donaldson's 'Valentino ways." To Lee Peters, we leave Reta Hamilton's quietness. To Joan Randall, we leave Marilyn Laquet's faithfulness to one boy. To Celia Thompson, we leave the directions to Bob West's parking spots. To Judy Wildman, we leave Ethel Nelson's and Harriet Hick's date books. Compliments of SHARP-JONES GROCHIY STORE Compliments of GARDNER VARIETY STORE ,Z f .KZDFOPAKQCY As Jerry Neal and Georgie Dana packed their saddle-bags and put the finishing touches to their X N plans for a horseback trip to Califomia, they received a letter from England. Very curious - to find who it was from, they tore it open and discovered the writer to be their old school- mate, Roxy Crane. She is living in England and has married an Englishman with a long title. While getting a supply of groceries for the trip, Jerry asked to talk to the manager of the store. The manager turned out to be John Jones, the husband of Rogene Stemple. Rogene, who was working in his place. said they owned a whole chain of grocery stores. The evening before our travelers left, they made the rounds, visiting old friends they might not see for some time. Among the people visited was Mary Ethel Klamm, who was an English teacher in Olathe High School, They also saw Theresa Van Goe- them who was vising from Texas where she is Rodeo Queen. They met the former Marilyn Hoffine Ford and Bill who were visiting homefolks, and Myma Shreve, a model at Hartzfelds in New York. They made their last call at the home of Bob West, who was living happily on his large ten-acre farm with his wife and eight kids. Larry PBGICB. a hot rod racer, gave them the startling news that Johnny Velasquez has a girl friend and a car, and has joined the foreign legion. One evening about two weeks after our travelers started on their trip, they rode into a town in Westem Kansas to see a circus. Were they ever surprised to find a circus poster featuring Gene Stricker as a strong man in the same show that was featuring a fighter, Gary Rush! After a few weeks of riding, they received a letter which was forwarded from Charlotte Cloud, Qwho was teaching high standards of living to the mountain peoplej, and she said she had heard that Dorris Donaldson was attending West Point and making high marks. Just as they were about to leave Colorado, Georgie's horse fell, she was injured and taken to the hospital, The nurse in charge of her room turned out to be Reta Hamilton. She told Georgie that Ethel Nelson had married, returned to Georgia, and is raising kid goats. As they resumed their trip, they came upon a little hermit. Of all people, it turned out to be Harriet Hicks who had come west prospecting for a man. They finally reached the border of Califomia and were attending a football game between Califomia University and TCU. The TCU coach's wife, the former Barbara Ormsby, gave them a hearty welcome, She said Marilyn Laquet had just retumed to South America, where her husband is a petroleum engineer. Finally, their destination was reached, and as they were walking down the streets of Los Angeles, they noticed a poster advertising a very popular show, 'Guywires and Doll Dresses," starring Larry Clark, a double of Sunset Carson. Their mission completed, they returned to Kansas and lived happily ever after, Compliments of WESTERN AUTO Products of Saunders Compliments of MARJE'S BEAUTY SHOP Compliments of PHILLIPS 66 SHIVICE STATION .E ss.: ts MP' 'E' 'R fx? gww, ' X ,Q fm ,N Q.. , 'W A sts 2 ' B L A A ' Y lf A ,W 2-5, 'E A sssl l i :, 5 :LE A Compliments of E 8s R CA FE Compliments of GORSAGE CLEANERS Compliments of SMITH'S SERVICE STATION 'li I LOIS AHLENSTORF Treasurer PHYLLIS ANDREW Secretary GLENN BONAR JUDY CLARK JACK CLOUD BOB CORDELL MARY BETH DAVIS HHSIRY DAVIS VICTOR FONSECA FRED GARCIA CREA D HOGA N ALBERT BROWN NANCY SUE JENSEN NORLEA KLAMM WAYNE KNABE BILL LEEKER LEE PETERS MYRON PLANK Sgt. of Arms JOAN RANDALL CELIA THOMPSON President JUDY WILDMAN Vice President Compliments of 'B' SQUARE ELIIITRONICS Compliments of BRUCES FURNITURE Malcom Koller Pat Cairns Pat Chesney Gaye Cole, Secretary Donna Dunlap Thomas Emberton Renetta Fajen Sid Fraser, Vice President Charles Freund Jackie Gay, President Henry Hadle, Treasurer Karen Hedrick Arnold Johnson Bill Klamm Agnes Leeker Peggy Lintner Winnona McClaugerty Donald Moll Shelby Moore Jay Newton Mason Dean Ormsby Bob Ray Dean Ray Dennis Ray Jon Reuck Dorthy Soetaert Loren Sternple Cecil Stroud 'F-2 if 2 ,.., ' 'gs me :., fl .
