'l'he llutfaloes opened their 19-18 football season at lcfrbana and won their fourth game in a row
from their llig 12 rivals. 'llhe llutfaloes were without the service of their Captain Rus Alexander, but
his position was capably tilled by Sophomore "Chuck" llolmes, whose running, passing, and tackling
along with Blclienzids running stood out as high caliber. The line play of the lluffs' was excellent for
an opening game.
GEORGE'l'OXX'N 33-CllARLES'l'ON 0
,-Xfter a ragged first half in which the Charleston boys opened great holes in the lluffalo forward
wall, the Georgetowners went to work and gave Charleston a good exhibition of football. lliava w'as
running well on end around plays and Alexander ran well from the tail-back spot.
GEOR GETOVVN 12-fDECA'l' UR 18
ln their lirst home game the llutfaloes met the llig Reds from llecatur and held the fans spell-
bound with their blocking and tackling. Klany fans have said this was the greatest prep game they
have ever witnessed. Vie will say that it was the game in which the blocking and tackling was the most
deadly that we have seen in many moons. Long runs featured the game with Klclienzie's 72 yard touch-
down being a highlight in a game which all of us will remember as long as high school football is
GEURGE'l'OX'VN 7-llO0l'ES'l'ON 7
For the tirst time in many years the annual game with lloopeston at lloopeston was not played on
Armistice llay. Hoopeston pointing for the game, trying to break the chain of defeats covering 17
years, were at their best and Georgetown was definitely flat following their keying for Decatur. 'llhe
Cornjerkers of lloopeston. tied the game in the last 30 seconds and played their best game of the year,
but couldn't break the "jinx" and win from the llutfaloes.
GE! BRGETOWN 6-fllRADLEY 6
Still suffering from a let down, the lluffaloes met a once defeated llradley team at llradley and
were played to a standstill by the rugged llradley line. 'l'he llutfaloes were not sharp on their blocking
and could put on good drives for yardage, but kicked away their opportunities by penalties when it
seemed they could go on to score. 1t was hard played and could have been won by either team, but
ended in a deadlock.
GEOlQGE'l'UXN'N 34+IXlAR,Sl IAL1. 6
llarshall came to Georgetown with an undefeated team and was soundly licked in a rough and
tumble game, marred by many penalties and sideline hsticufts. lt was not an interesting game from
either the spectators' or players' viewpoint. .
t1Et7lQGl2'l'OXYN 25-PA RTS 0
Rain ruined the lluffaloes Homecoming festivities as well as the ball game with their friendly
rivals from the E. l. l,eague. l'aris was no match for the sharp-biting llutifaloes and never threatened
to score. 'lihe play of llildilli, Long, and llerkins in the line was very good for the lluffaloes and the
running of tirider, Spang, and Alexander looked sharp for the Georgetowners.
CEI 3lQGE'l'OXN'N 15-XN'ES'l'X'lLLE O
.-Ns has been said many times before, "when these two get together, all else is forgotten and it is
.1 battle all the way." Playing this traditional game for the first time on a day other than the tradi-
tional 'l'hanksgiving date, these two bitter rivals went after each other in typical Ceorgettmwn-XVestville
fashion. .-X muddy tield slowed down the scoring somewhat, but the tackling was better and there was
no quarter asked. 'l'he llutfaloes played the entire game in Westville territory, but could score only two
touchdowns and a safety for a margin of 15 points which, by the way, was the most lopsided score in
I0 years. lt has been said that when better high school football is played you will see it in the
Getmrgetown-1Yestville game. and this 1948 was no exception.

BILL LONG-Senfor-Tackle-4th Letter. Only four GEORGE SI'ANG-St'uiur-Q.B,-2nd Letter. Faste
boys in the last quarter of a century have earned four
letters in football at Georgetown. That fact speaks
for l3ill's ability. Always a fighter, although some-
what handicapped by lack of speed he was never out-
charged or out fought.
RUSSELL ALEXANDER-'Senfor-L.H.-3rd Letter.
Captain '-18. An unassuming boy who gave his best at
all times in practice or on the held of play. The type
of clean athlete and boy that you and l would like
our sons to be like. An unusual leader.
CHARLES RlcKlfNZlli-Seliior-FB.--Znd Letter.
"Deacon" improved steadily from his Sophomore year
to reach his best form during his senior season. A
hard runner with a line straight arm. XYe will long
remember his terrific driving runs on reverses and
especially his 72-yard ruu against Decatur.
CHARLES BlLlJILLl-Senim'-Tackle--2nd Letter.
Although handicapped by lack of speed and size for
a tackle, Charles was one of the best tacklers on the
team and dependable at all times. Did not miss a
practice in four years which is certainly a tribute to
his spirit. Truly a team man.
BILLY RUTKONYSKI -Senior-- Guard-Z:id Letter.
Billy has natural speed and a quick charge. A good
blocker and tackler. He always played aggressive ball.
Sometimes had ditiiculty remembering assignments
but made up for that by "scrappy" play.
MARCUS THORIPSON-Junior-Tackle-1st Letter.
Yery light iu weight but can hit very hard for a
small boy. lf he can pick up ten or fifteen pounds
during the coming year, he will be a headache to
opponents next fall. Doest:'t know fear and loves
DON l'liRKINS-Senfor--Guard-2nd Letter. Don
started his high school football as a halfback but
transferred to the line his junior year and here he
found himself. Light and fast was this boy whose
calm appearance on the field made him seem lacking
in spirit. A strong tackler and shary blocker.
VIRGIL l3lAVA--St'r1ior-L.F.-lst Letter. Yirgil
spent a year and half at another high school so
played only one year for the Buffalos. Tall, raugy,
good pass catcher, good blocker but not too strong
as a tackler. Rau well when carrying the ball on end
ALFRED MORRIS-Senior-R.E.-Znd Letter. "Al"
transferred from guard to end and became the teams
top defensive end. A good pass receiver and although
slow, he seemed to overcome that handicap by being
in the right position. Used his hands well to keep
blockers off his legs.
boy on the team. An expert blocker but only average
as a defensive back. His pass interception in the
Marshall game was a most sparkling play of its kind
and his touchdovru run against Decatur was beautiful,
Truly a team man. XYon the Sportsmanship trophy.
RONALD GRIDER - Jtntiur -- R H. - 2nd Letter.
"Ronnie" developed considerable poise this year.
Started to work on puutiug and set kicking. His
punting became quite commendable and his kickoFf
ability has had no equal for many years on Buffalo
football. A sure tackler and fair as a blocker. His
running on the quick opening quarter back sneaks
was something to gladdeu the heart of football fans.
LIELAND HL'KIRICHOUS-Junior-Q.B.-lst Letter,
"Hamer" missed his Sophomore year because of
eligibility but came along fast this season. His punt-
iug has improved steadily and his blocking and
running greatly improved during the last month of
the season. lf he starts in next fall where he left
off this season, he will be a tough boy to stop.
JOHN THOMPSON - Junior - LF. - lst Letter.
Although rather slow, John is rapidly developing in-
to a first-class end. He is a good tackling end and a
fine pass catcher. lf he can improve his speed by
track work, he should carry on to great heights
PHIL NVILLIAMS - .S'r'ni01' - Center-2nd Letter.
"Kelly" was the third of the XVilliams brothers to
play football for the lluffalos and we believe the
"Great Roman" of them all. Although weighing only
140 pounds, he backed up the line on defense and was
a deadly tackle. Although slow on foot, mental
alertness gave this boy the ability to get in front of
the runner. '
JOE BODART - Sultlmmorr' - F.l3. - lst Letter. joe
came out two weeks after the season started and be-
came the most improved player on the squad, A
terrific tackler, and can this boy run. Fastest Sopho-
more we have seen on a Buffalo squad and learns
quickly. VVe will predict that this quiet, unassuming,
serious, blonde lad could become one of the school's
best running backs if he continued to work as hard
as he has this season.
CHARLES HOLMES-Sofftomorr-l,.H-l st Letter.
A very versatile back for a youngster. One of those
boys who seems to have a knack of using his inter-
ference to the best advantage. A good passer and
learning to punt. Did outstanding job filling in for
Captain Alexander in the opening game at Urbana.
Should be a triple threat back before he finishes his
high school football.

KENNETH ST,AliKS-m,h1t'IIft?I', Captain
' 2nd Letter-Guard
A good captain of a good team. Led the scoring with
.300 points in 25 hall games. Was usually high point
man in games. Scored 18 points against Danville. Very
accurate free throw shooter, and has the hest long
shot in the county. Although small, he was one of our
hest rehottnders. XYas selected on the second team All-
County. We will miss his deadly shooting.
YI RGIL IEIAVA-Senior
Yirgil controlled the hankhoards for us. Usually lead
the team in rehounds, This is very important for you
must get the hall hefore you can do anything with it.
He played a Fine game against Danville, out rehound-
ing their center most of the hall game. Received honor-
ahle mention on the All-County team. NYC will miss
his rehounding and height.
2nd Letter Forward
The "workhorse" of theiteam. Always plays his best
in every game. By the end of the season was very
clever with his left hand shots and faking. Tom was
usually assigned the opponents' hest offensive player,
which indicates that he is a good defensive man. The
hoys were wise in selecting him as captain next year. for
his high standards make him a natural leader. He
should he tough next year as it will he his third year
of varsity experience.
PHI L WEAVER-Senior
A very accurate left hand shot, hitting a high per-
centage of these shots from certain spots on the Hoor.
He lead our fast hreak down the floor very effectively
scoring many haskets. He was always cool and calm
while under fire, which is one of the characteristics of
a good hall player. One of the nicest hoys I have ever
worked with. VVish he could he hack with us next
season for we will miss him very much.
Another small hoy, hut very clever. I don't believe
there are many guards that work hetter together than
Bildilli and Bratton, if they can only elongate them-
selves hetween now and next season. Bildilli, has a very
:tice shot from out on the tloor. lf he perfects his
drive-ins and defensive play he will he hard to stop
next season. His real name is "Dillhilly."
,X nice hoy to work with, always has a goot attitude in
practice. A rangy hoy who gave us some of that much
needen height. Has a nice shot from out on the floor.
Was very "hot" with these shots against Hume. Needs
to work on "driving in" so he can pick up more foul
shots. lf he perfects this he will he one of the leading
scorers. Has speed that euahlcs him to move on
offense and get hack on defense. Should he tough next
year as he will he after his third letter.
Has hig hands that are very helpful to a haskethall
player. He uses these to advantage in tapping in many
rehounds. He has height that we need, He should have
a good season next year, if he will work hard on his
"lay-ups" for I think this will make him one of our
leading scorers. Vvas very effective against Danville: a
few minutes after entering the game he racked up
two quick haskets.
A small hoy hut very clever with the hall. He can
turn on a dime, and give you nine cents change. A very
accurate free throw shooter as is proved hy his win-
ning of the free throw trophy with a very high per-
centage of .728. l've yet to see a defense that he can't
penetrate, if he will only learn to make his lay-ups after
getting through. Once he perfects this he should he a
very good scorer. He loves haskethall which is very
ALFRED MORRI S-Smziur
"Alfy" was usually one of our leading scorers. Was
very deadly from various spots on the fioor with his
one-hand push shot. Also a very accurate free throw
shooter. Always had plenty of "pep and scrap" in the
game which is one of the characteristics of a good hall
player. Received honorable mention on the All-County
team. We will miss his shooting and height.

TRACK 'I948 AND 1949
At the time this book goes to press, this spring sport has just well started.
Two meets have been' held with Capt. George Spang and sixty teammates working
hard to defend their county championship.
The Buffaloes have won the Vermilion County Championship five of the last
six years and tied for it once. This season they will have to come up with some
stellar performances to keep that championship crown at G. H. S.
Outstanding on the 1948 championship team was Kenneth Pearson, who set
a new county record in the mile run. His mark of 4 min. 40.5 sec. erased the
record of 4 min. 43.4 sec. held by Neal of Danville set in l9l4. Pearson qualified
for the state finals and won fourth on the state at the University of Illinois track.
Dale Smith tied his brother Don's 200 yd. low hurdle record for the county,
running the low hurdles in 24.2 sec. in the county meet. Dale also placed fourth
in the 100 yd. dash.
Gene VK'illiams won second in the S80 yd. run in the creditable time of 2 min.
and 5.5 sec.
Carl Dawson won the high jump and placed third in the high hurdles for
seven big points in the county meet.
Tom Maudlin, a sophomore, won third in the shot put.
Carl Thompson placed second in the 100 yd. dash, fourth in the low hurdles
and fourth in the 220 yd. dash for five points.
Ronald Meithe placed fourth in the S80 yd. run and George Spang won sec-
ond in the 440 yd. dash with Virgil Biava placing third in the same event.
Billy Maskel placed second in the discus throw to round out the winning score
for thirty-seven points in the county meet.
VVhile this 1949 season is still very young, several good performances have
been registered. Capt. Spang has turned in a record time of 53 sec. flat in the 440
and 2:05 in the 880 yd. run. Virgil Biava has run 2:04.7 in the 880 and 54.4 in
the 440 yd. dash. Joe Bodart has run the century in 10.5 in both meets with
Rutkowski at his heels. These two boys have each defeated the other in the 220
yd. dash in the creditable time of 23.5 see. At this writing Carl Dawson, Ronald
Grider, and Don Perkins are running good times in the hurdle races and Dawson
has cleared 5 ft. 8 in. in the high jump. Tom Maudlin has been showing good
form in the shot put at about 42 to 43 ft. and is undefeated thus far. In the mile
race 'lim Bratton and Joe Tanzey are now under 5 min. and reducing their time
each meet. Jim jones and Richard Jeffers are underclassmen looking good in the
half mile run.
lt appears that the varsity relay team of Bodart, Spang, Biava, and Rut-
kowski may come close to the county record in that event and the freshman relay
team of T. Grider, Thompson, Botkin, and Brooks might uphold the Buffalo
tradition of winning the "Yearling S80 Relay" but we must wait until the 1950
"Buffalo" goes to press to give you the outcome.

' ' ' 'wi? f -Y-S----W
Wednesday: The new look is certainly domi-
nant in this school, new teacher, new principal
and many new students-and we are the gloating
seniors. What's the matter freshmen? Do you
need a road map?
Thursday: Nominating committee from each
class for class officers were elected today. We
hear two old flames have been seen together a lot
the past week. Eh, Erma? What does Jo think
Friday: School is finally getting organized.
The freshmen are getting around a little bit bet-
ter. Everyone tired of school already, including
Monday: Hurrah! A well-earned vacation at
Tuesday: We elected our cheerleaders for '48-
'49 today. "Pistol" Cimino, Elenor Smith, Bill
Stevenson, and Lois Gallagher were the lucky
ones. Mr. Kriviskey finally learned how to use
GAD's P. A. system, broadcast of 6k Krivisko-
Wednesday: Say, Shag, they say you're a
Democrat. Don't you and Mrs. Humrichous agree
on certain political questions? We hear Erma
spent the afternoon in Charleston. It couldn't
be the scenery she went to see could it?
Thursday: Several seniors were seen playing
tag on the lawn at noon. Some kids never do grow
up do they? First Buffalo staff meeting was held
today to start planning for the '49 Buffalo. Wel-
come home, Caudill. How was California and
Friday: The first Student Council meeting
was held today: The officers elected for this year
were: President, John Flynn: Vice-President,
Tom Maudling Secretary, Belva Whitaker.
Monday: We had an assembly for changing the
school colors. A two round bout was held between
Rees and Burch with John Flynn as referee.
Those who didn't agree with Bill Long on the
matter were quickly thrown into the bushes. By
the way, I hear they're very sticky. If you don't
believe us, just ask certain freshmen boys, or
even some sophomore boys. Isn't that right,
Tuesday: Bill Long was seen passing out
cigars. It couldn't be because of that new baby
sister could it, Bill? We hear our Frosh-Soph
team really gave some Catlin kid a rough time.
Think what our varsity can do. WOVVH!!
Wednesday: All Iettermen wore their sweaters
trying to get the good out of them before the
colors are changed. Do we detect a new romance
on the campus between John Hayward and that
little freshman, Pat Mitchell?
Thursday: Scrimmage at Oakwood. No broken
bones this time though. We had a matinee dance
from 2:00 until 4:00. There were lots of scared
freshmen there. No smooching in the corners at
matinees is there, kids? Darn it!!!!
Friday: Have yon noticed how the seniors are
walking around as if they own the world? Classes
were shortened today for an assembly. We were
all glad to see Mr. Deland back today. Seems
like old times to the upper classmen.
Monday: Football players have been walking
on air this last week-end after they mopped the
earth with Urbana with a score of 30-0. Kay W.
must think it's summer. She's going around school
without her shoes. Better get out your red fian-
nels kids, it looks like winter is just around the
iorner. Ole Jack Frost will be here before you
Tuesday: Band and Chorus were measured for
new uniforms and robes. Pat and Belva enjoyed
their vacation, didn't you, kids? Bill Long had
a quick recovery after his recent illness. Pictures
were taken for the annual. Mr. Burdzeus has
been contracted to do the work. Now, we're sure
of having a good Buffalo.
Wednesday: Half a day of school for students
today. Whoops! Teacher's meeting this afternoon,
tough luck, teachers. Who is the Bob, Elenor S. is
always wanting to see from Westville? You bet-
ter watch her, Pee Wee.
Thursday: Pat Woodard's all excited about her
new niece. Say, Casanova Humrichous, which is
your latest heartbeat, Belva or Erma? Rook came
to school with a banged-up nose. He wouldn't tell
whether it was his wife or his small son. I bet
you can guess, though.
Friday: To hear Adele H. tell it, she has a lot
of dates, and late ones, too, in Ridgefarm. How
about it Adele? Get rid of that gum kids and
1et's have no more necking on the campus, so the
new rules .and regulations say. We found we had
a lot of hidden talent at the assembly program,
including "Hammer" and "Sixty." Good luck
with Charleston, fellas.
Monday: Same old grind. Sure would be nice if
they would move the classes out onto the campus.
That's where most of the kids are anyway.
Tuesday: Frosh-Soph lose to Danville 18-12.
Sure could tell there was a Buffalo meeting today.
You could hear the stampede. CA composition by
Wednesday: Some kids sure can work it to
get out of study hall. For instance, Kelly and
Thursday: F.H.A. Meeting was held at noon.
Something new. By the way, Student Council,
it's something we like, too. A certain little fresh-
man girl was heard to say in the halls that they
didn't have a chance around here with all the
big seniors. Now, that isn't true. Is it, seniors?
Friday: Kids found out that even seniors were
to blame for the untidy appearance of the school.
Everyone is aroused over the big game of the sea-
son tonight with Decatur. Wow em, kids!
Monday: Ronald Grider can't seen to carry on
Tarzan tactics very well-so we found out this
morning. The boys played a thrilling game but
they beat us 18-12.

-even the brand.
Wednesday: Our secretary, so we hear, was
absent today because of illness. That's only the
beginning though. Wait until she gets back to
school and Hnds the mess the Shorthand II girls
made out of her office. Student Council finally
gave in and let us have a dance. Couples after
the dance were: Biava and DeMott, Edwards and
Weaver, Grider and Wilson, and our old stand-
bys Williams and Baldwin, Williams and Dukes,
and Murray and Bildilli. Seniors of '49 sure
looked lonesome without the class of '48.
Friday: Poor teachers have to suffer out two
days at teacher's institute. Play cast met at
Stoltz's both evenings. Found out that Stoltz can
sling a mean skillet.
Monday: Familiar sight around school on Mon-
day-bags below the eyes, girls with straight
hair, sounds of snoring drifting from the study
halls, and yawning. But there seemed to be more
than usual after the 4 day's vacation.
Tuesday: F.F.A. and F.H.A. hay rack ride.
Two senior couples had to be stopped from the
art of necking by their chaperone. Some kids
just never do grow up, do they? Seniors are all
walking around with their noses in the air be-
cause they got to see President Truman today.
Ask Mrs. Humrichous how she like him.
Wednesday: Hey, Alf, what's Superman been
doing lately, or have you been caught reading
comic books in class again? Shame, shame, Al-
Thursday: What's the romance that is bloom-
ing between Betty Sleva and Hammer on a
stool in the drug store?
Friday: June's wedding and the football game
both kick off at 7:30. Good luck, teach, and by
the way, Hoot, we'd like to tell you that you're
getting a peach.
Monday: Football game turned out to be a
prize fight. If anyone wants to know what a foot-
ball game looks like to a player from the sidelines,
just ask Alfy.
Tuesday: We hear that a Westville boy was
caught halloweening. You wouldn't know who it
was would you, Rosmary? Mr. Kriviskey seems
to be getting some pretty bad reports about 3
certain seniors boys. I wonder who they could be!
Wednesday: A lot of kids seem rather pale
after report cards were given out this morning.
Band has a halloween party and we hear every-
one is supposed to come prepared to eat plenty
of barbecues. That's for me!
Thursday: Gene Williams seems to be having
plenty of competition with his red hat from
Dominic Bildilli. Candidates for the Homecoming
Queen were elected today. They were: Belva
1-- - .Q .,,,,,.
Whitaker, Jewel Sheets, Jeannie Hearnly, and
Margaret Whitaker. Too bad they can't all win,
Friday: It looks as if Joe Louis will have to
give up his belt to Johnny Thompson in a couple
of years if he keeps up his noon hour practicing.
It must run in the family. Brenneman gave the
first assembly program today which proved there
was some hidden actors in school including
Barker and Biava.
Monday: Juniors are racking their brains over
U. of I. tests. Must be some very popular kids
in school today the way everyone is trading
pictures. The romance between Sue and Bob
seems to be one of those on-again off-again af-
fairs. At present it seems to be definitely off.
Tuesday: Several students in school seem to
be rather politically minded as was shown by
their campaign speeches. Truman proved to be
the best man much to certain people's regrets.
The country seemed to feel the same way as the
students, so Lee is preparing to leave our demo-
cratic country and move to Canada. So long, Lee.
Elections for the Homecoming Queen were also
Wednesday: If the student council doesn't get
on the ball, there's going to be some hair pulling
and some kids don't seem to have any to spare.
How about it, Whitaker? It seems as if five sen-
iors are getting called into the office quite often
for conferences with Kriviskey. We killed off
Deacon Sweeley in Mrs. Craig's assembly pro-
Thursday: What's this new romance blooming
between Mary Ann Dukes and a senior man-
about-town. We think Gene VVilliams deserves
a hand for all the newspaper articles that have
appeared each week in the Georgetown News.
Friday: The weather man was against us but
we sure walloped Paris anyhow, didn't we, kids?
26-0 mind you! Jeannie Hearnley made a cute
queen and we were all glad to see the old alums
back for a get-together in spite of the rain and
all the bad weather.
Monday: Everyone has a week-end hangover
as usual. That cute little freshman, Sharon
Walden, seems to have a one track mind, and you
probably know what track it is. That's right-
Tuesday: There's a ten-round fight going on
about Jewel. It isn't certain yet who the winner
will be--Gene or Kenny. Did you ever see such
cute freshman boys?
Wednesday: Music often heard floating through
the air at noon-couldn't be the trio practicing
could it? Johnny T. and a sophomore cheer-
leader fwonder who it could be?j seem to enjoy
each other's company quite well lately.
Thursday: Everyone got jerked to pieces at
the snake dance. It seems funny not having
them the day before Thanksgiving, doesn't it?

Friday: Lucky seniors getting out of school
again. Doesn't Mary Ann look lost around school?
Couldn't be she's lonesome without Gene, could
it? We skunked Westville good and hard in a
down-pour 15-0. Think what we could have done
if it hadn't rained!!
Monday: History and English classes enjoy
slides taken by Mr. Stoltz. Some kids seem to dm
more harm than good. Ask Charlotte G. and
Adele H. if you want to know more about it.
Tuesday: Erma's angry because her lover fwe
wonderl won't be home for Thanksgiving. You
better investigate that, Erma. We all feel sorry
for Pat and Phyllis with dishpan hands.
Wednesday: Football banquet was a big suc-
cess. Corky got the coveted sportsmanship trophy
and Ronald Grider has the difficult task of filling
Alex's shoes for next year. Good luck, Ron.
Thursday: Fights-fights-fights. That's all
there is around school anymore. Today it was
Alfred and Humrichous.
Friday: Not much happened at school that
was unusual, therefore, we won't say anything.
Monday: It seems as if jeans worn to school
cause quite a disturbance among the boys. If you
don't believe us, ask a certain senior girl. VVe
hear it's a lot easier to play a horn without a
towel in it. How about it, Donna?
Tuesday: What's the big attraction at Junior
High, Georgie? Couldn't be a Miss Lewis, could
lt? It seems as if the senior could at least act
grown up when being measured for gowns, but
Wednesday: Miss Henderson gave her assembly
program with the tradition of Thanksgiving. It
sure looked good to see some familiar faces from
last year around school today. To climax this
short week, a dance was held and pumpkin pie
was enjoyed by all even if the S. C. did go in the
hole. See you in four days!
Monday: Everyone back and anxious for
Christmas vacation! The band and choir mem-
bers who took part in the all-state band and choir
llilave 'been talking about their trip all day. Ho-
Tuesday: Cousins sure took a beating today.
Isn't that right Phyllis C. and Rosemary D. The
serving of milk sure seems to be causing quite a
mess downstairs and also developing muscles.
How about it, boys?
Wednesday: I wonder why Joy C. is all smiles
when she comes to school in the morning?
Couldn't be because Westville was down the
night before could it? How about that, Joy?
Thursday: Boys are hard to get these days.
Girls have to chase them all over the school. We
understand, Bernice. It's all in the act. Looks like
the Junior play is going to be pretty good, but,
of course, not as good as last year's.
Friday: Junior play proved to be a riot. Mr.
I-Iouts was given the honor of pulling the curtain
on his own assembly program. Intramural basket-
ball games started today. Looks like there is go-
ing to be some stiff competition.
Monday: Seniors were glad to see their old
classmate, Tommy Rice, back home from the serv-
ice. Welcome home, Tom!
Tuesday: Two girls joined our clan from
Cayuga. Their names-Zelma and Esther Miller.
Welcome, kids. Student Council meeting today.
I wonder what they find to talk about at those
meetings. Westville beat us 36-35. Too bad!
Wednesday: Many sad faces were seen around
school after report cards were handed out. Stu-
dent Council members visited other schools, and
found out that our's is still tops.
Thursday: More pictures were taken for the
annual. Sorry to learn of the death of Janet and
Carolyn Golcynski's father and also of Charlotte
Canaday's Uncle "Doc."
Friday: We were again beaten in basketball
this time by East Lynn with a score of 58-38.
Library students were disturbed by the heated
debate in American History. Lois W. was nearly
suspended from school activities because her feet
didn't reach her seat in time. Couldn't be she was
talking to Gene W. in the halls. Come now, con-
fess, Lois. .
Monday: Juniors are all aglow. They got their
rings today. There are more on-again and off-
again romances in this school. This time it's Bill
Long and Gayle Llewellyn.
Tuesday: Everyone seems to be getting the
high-hat from Belva. Couldn't be something to do
with Christmas, could it? Wallopped Ridgefarm,
Wednesday: Seems to be a scandal sheet oing
around school with all the latest news on it. There
surely will be some future homemakers as all the
girls are seen around school with their knitting.
Members of music department are all excited
over the arrival of the new band uniforms and
Thursday: Band and choir kids are all spruced
up in their new attire and ready for their con-
cert. A little bird told us that a new romance
has sprung up between Bernice Kocanda and
Friday: Mrs. Humrichous' assembly program
was given which showed people from Mars look-
ing in on C.H.S. I wonder what they really
thought of it. Beat Cayuga 42-21. All that's heard
among the seniors is, "Are you going to Pat's
Monday: Man, the sleepy-eyed kids after Pat's
party last Firday night or should we say Satur-
day morning. Oh! these seniors.
Tuesday: Kirby seen riding to school with Hen-
derson. What's this? Dreams of a White Christ-
mas have sure vanished over the week end. '

Wednesday: Seniors all excited over senior
pictures while all the lower classmen look on
big-eyed. Miss Husted's assembly program and
gift exchange. Quite a few silly gifts. Huh, kids?
Everyone showed up at the dance in new Christ-
mas clothes. Going back to the old days now and
doing the "Virginia Reel." It was fun even if we
were all a little, shall be say, rusty? All of us
were shocked and hurt to hear of the death of our
most faithful and appreciative band patron-
Phyllis' dog was killed today.
Monday--January 3. With visions of Santa
Claus and New Year's Eve hangover, GHS stu-
dents end a pleasant and memorable vacation fwe

Tuesday-January 4: Donna R. doesn't have
to look at clock's anymore because of the watch
she received from a certain Ridgefarm guy.
J. Thompson quit the bench squad. Rook seems to
resent it. Result-Goodbye. Raining cats and dogs
outside. Some seniors are moving to Sahara if it
doesn't stop--so they say.
Wednesday-January 5: Kids skipping school
used to be a common occurrence. Seems like the
teachers are taking over now. How about it
Houts? Shirley Wilson surely wears a wide as-
sortment of colors, or have you noticed?
Thursday-January 6. P. Edwards was seen
walking around outside at noon with right arm
extended and blowing vigorously. Someone ought
to tell her you call 2121 to report a fire.
Friday-January 7. Houts comes back to school
with a haircut above his mouth. Quite an im-
provement, wouldn't you say? Or would you?
Rossville really trims us, nuff said. Kirby gives
his assembly program. It seems as if Alfy has
lost his case-if you know what we mean.
Monday: Ron, we know you like blondes, but
which one? Band and Choir pictures were taken
for the fourth time. Here's hoping! Ping-pong
seems to be the fad right now.
Tuesday: The Buffaloes finally stampede. Hav-
ing a good field percentage, we beat our friendly
Uh foes of Westville with a victory of 54-30.
Phyllis C., whom did you ask to the Sadie Hawk-
ins dance? And, may we ask, why so soon?
Jewel's going to lose her sweet Qahemlj disposi-
tion when she finds this out. Pat W. looked up
the wedding ceremony in the Bible. Any par-
ticular person, Pat?
Wednesday: GAA had a swell swimming party.
Everyone had sniffles and running noses the next
day. Does this remind Kay W. and Corky S. of
anything? Does it seem like a year, kids?
Thursday: What did Von Del and Shirley do
to make them so scared of Gene W. All evidence
points towards blackmail.
Pete Caudill, applying for a job, filled out
all the necessary questions. Were you ever
arrested? Pete answered, "no," The following
lun . . pu ,
question WHY? pertained only if the answer
was in the affirmative. Pete's was: "I never
Friday: Bismarck and Georgetown played a
close game all the way, but our 38 points bettered
their 35. Bill is all smiles again. Dance followed
our victory. Kay and Cork dissolve a beautiful
friendship or shall we say-romance. Too bad,
kids, but we still have hopes.
Monday: Three senior girls had to lower them-
selves and sit with the freshmen during Miss
Henderson's movie on flowers. Can you imagine
anything so disgraceful?
Tuesday: Seniors all craming for history exam
and the freshmen look positively scared to death.
School dismissed early because of bad weather.
Boy, why don't we have this more often? Game
with Sidell was postponed.
Wednesday: Dominic B. and Jim B. prove to
be real competition to our cheerleaders. Cork
really sems to be a man about town. His latest
fiame is Charlotte C. Played Sidell and beat them
with a score of 39-24.

We beat Oakwood in a thrilling game. It really
made your blood pressure go up.
Wednesday: Played Catlin and beat them
again. I think everyone is getting tired of basket-
ball, but are all still inquisitive as to what has
happened to our team. Did you ever in your life
see Bnygvgilrl that has as many aches and pains as
Thursday: Last night's game was too much
for Rook. Another teacher absent. Shame!
Shame! Good thing we don't have school on

Our calendar is all finished now, and before
we go to press we just want to say that on
Saturday, April 9, Mr. Houts took his band and
choir to Hoopeston to compete in the District
Music Contest. Both groups returned home with
first place in their division. On April 30, they
will go to Charleston to compete in the state
contest. We are sure that they will also take first
place there. Mr. Houts has done a grand job in
teaching and advising these students, may they
continue with their music in later years. We hope
that the band and choir of GHS will continue to
take first place for years to come.
"INSIDE DOPE OF G.H.S."
G.H.S. is the school that we love best,
Because it's better than all the rest.
