Walkup The Lord Bless You and Keep You CLASS PROPHECY As I look into the future and traverse the stairway to the stars some ten years hence, I see be- fore me the cream of the Milky Way. Some of the thirty-eight senior stars have attained higher heights than others, some are brighter, while still others are more beautiful: but each shines ra- diantly in its own way. The first star is a famous wrestler, Curly Curt Meyerhoff by name. He now has his own Used Car lot. You can't say he hasn't had "a lot" of experience. There shine Harlan DeB0er and Douglas Bruns. They have really built themselves up in the world. They have just constructed a 103 story building. Talk about reaching the heights! Shirley Stubbe has paved the way inT1er waitress career. She has just become the head wait- ress "to" a Brown Derby in Hollywood. Hereqre two of our stars--star basketball players from George High--Pat Meester, forward, and Nadine Kruse, guard. When Pat graduated from school she got a car and said, "I'm going to take this "Forward" to New York. Now she is editor of the New York Fashion Magazine. Nadine Kruse--Hey, where is she? Ah, there she is, guarding the gold at Fort Kruse and it's all hers. She got it singing on the NAK Television Show. Ah, I see Dorothy Reiter is still cheering. Cheering because she finally landed a fish with her line. Nice fishing, Dorothy. Lloyd Ossenfort has met and married his Harriet. Now on television, Ozzie and Harriet have competition. Every Friday night Ozzie and Harriet Ossenfort and Ir. and Slicky may be seen. At present Dorothy Bruns is at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York testing a new waffle. She's one of the best cooks in America fa rival of Betty Crockerj. I guess that medal she received in high school inspired her. Clarence Jurrens owns a cookie factory in Manchester, New York. There he is making "Kooks" Cookies. Louise I-lansmann is making her living selling kisses but not the kind you think. No, I see she is the proud owner of Louise's Yummy Candy Kiss Factory. Harlan Stubbe has just opened his own hatchery. He has been saving eggs for a number of years now. One who has worked her way up in the field of art is .Toann Sprock. She nowlhas gone through Greenwich Village and is drawing portraits of the President and other important "dog-catcher" officials. Next tirne you're in the "dog house" call on her--you might see her working. I just received a news flash from France. Jean Groenewold has received her first vote of con- fidence from the parliament as woman premier of France. And now to Hollywood where we find J'oe Klinkenborg as successor to Marlon Brando. As it was written in a Hollywood gossip column, he is noted as, not the "Lone Wolf" and not the "Lone Ran- ger" but, ---- as Tonto might say, "Ugh, him got much silver and many squaws." Of all the things Stanley Rypkema has been called, he has been named outstanding baseball play- er of 1962. Klaas Voss and wife are using their geometric knowledge in building a new home in California, one of those that hangs on a mountain. Another star is the former Betty Arends starring in her role of farm wife. During the day she looks after all the little Hansmanns and at night she teaches 4-H classes. Kenneth Hinsch, after trudging in the Sierra Madre for five years, has just discovered uraniu.m. He left on his prospecting trip the night he received his diploma. Wayne Krahling became a famous driver in the racing world. Didn't think.he would make it be- cause his name is often pronounced "Krawling." People want a driver who makes his car do much more than crawl. Nina Blau has cut her appetite. She is sword swallower for Ringling Brothers Circus. Rudy lvleyer owns a ranch in Alaska. He raises red-nosed reindeer, each endowed with the name, "Rudolph." In a farmhouse south of town we see Alma Duin and Johnnie. It seems the family pocketbook is subplanted more by accordian playing than by raising chickens. Henry Duin has been doin' just plenty. He is proud father of twins, "Nothin' Duin" and "Plen- ty Duin." He also sings at the Metropolitan Opera House. All that yelling across the study hall finally paid dividends. Texas clairns a dude ranch owner, Jackie Hilbrands. Jackie was a stewardess aboard an airplane that crashed in the rich oil fields of Texas. She later married the doctor who took care of her in the hospital after the crash. fBy the way, he owns ten oil wells., Guess who's the foreman ofthis classy dude ranch. None other than "The Dude," Den "Tex" Hilbrands. He made his fame in the role in his senior class days. Remember that "rock" Shirley Van Westen got for her finger in her senior year? Well, she's still collecting rocks. She and Stanley have a rock garden at their new home. Kenneth Harpham, the jet ace of the air force, is recruiting passengers for his tenth trip to the moon. The price has been cut to the astonishingly low price of Sl00,000 per person for a two week cruise in outer space. A new highway market has sprouted up. The sign says: "See Gene Thorn for the thorniest thorn bushes in town. A place where you'll get stuck if you don't watch out." 'I' l l l 4 i w N m David Morkrid is taking life easy in California. Dave owns the Morkrid Do-It-Yourself Dry Cleaning Company. There's a beautiful big Cadillac going down New York's Sth Avenue. In it are Helen Schneider- man and Carol Kruger, dress designers for Jean Groenewold of Paris. Carol Hollander, by the way, is an outstanding model working for the Carol-Helen Shoppe. Joan Schoonhoven's work in the F.B.I. offices is really exciting. Her favorite quote is, "I'm a lady detective looking for a man." Rose Duin?---Why, she's been named Miss Red Top of '65. Yes, that lovely red hair has final- ly won fame for her. The whole world is enjoying Glenda Van Briesen's beauty shop. Just try and tell me you can't make "headway" in the world by starting on the top. Carol Van Iperen has just realized her life-long ambition, to be a wife. There's no particular subject in her searches, all she wants is a plain ordinary man. The president of the senior class now works with the underworld. Byron Schrick says, "You know, I have a grave undertaking but actually business is dead." He's Edna's mortician. And so it is with the class of '55 ------ still shining so brightly--but oh, so differently than it CLASS WILL Be it known that we, the honorable members of the class of '55, on this the 24th day of May, be- ing of sound mind and body, declare this to be our last will and testament: Dennis Hilbrands wills his "way with the women" to Gary Abels and Ronald Winkel.

Shirley Stubbe gives her "boy cut" hair style to Betty Bos. Carol Van Iperen bestows her giggle to Marilyn Straatmeyer and Helen Athens. Clarence Jurrens wills his motto, "Women are so, unnecessary," to Orville Willemssen. Rudy Meyer contributes his reserved manner to Verdell Groen. Joan Schoonhoven bequeaths her long tresses to Mavis Goldhorn. Glenda Van Briesen wills her"come hither" eyes to Lorena Meinerts and her "Levis" to Mic- key Kramer. Lloyd Ossenfort leaves his ability to be heard to Dwayne Reibling. Stan Rypkema gives his position on the baseball team to Roger Harms. Nadine Kruse leaves her place on the basketball team to Judy Veenker and her pleasing person- ality to Janie Nagel. Kenneth Hinsch wills his cousin to Lois Tjepkes. Jackie Hilbrands leaves her height to Eileen Rypkema and Marcy Kix. She also leaves a few dates, just a few, girls. JoAnn Sprock leaves her art editorship to Phyllis Walkup.

Helen Schneiderman gives her extra-curricular activities to Connie Speake. Carol Kruger bequeaths her shorthand ability to Martha Geick. Nina Blau leaves her ability to remain unattached to Ruth Dirksen. Betty Arends wills her male companions during the noon hour to Marla Hinsch and Colleen Wil- lemssen. Henry Duin leaves everything he has to those Juniors who feel they have been cheated by the preceeding will. Divide among yout Signed, sealed, and declared by the Honorable Class of 1955 to be their last will and testament.

Encouraged by a "dude" he meets, he be- gins to give himself airs, as he sees a young gentlernan with his beautiful sister and girl friend. They start talk- ing and George takes the name of a prominent horse owner. The girl and George fall in love, but she must leave soon. However, she'll write: she knows the address of his estate. George is crushed. Her letters will all be sent back. "There ain't no such guy. Gosh amighty. I hope I get cancer and die."

The crowd watched two tense games with Rock Rapids as George's ri- val. After a hard fight Rock Rapids won both games by small margins. Between games the queen's attendants were ushered into the gym by their escorts. Following came the queen, Jackie I-Iilbrands, who was later crowned by the duke, Joe Klinkenborg.
