This year was the beginning of our quest for education and we started down the trail of knowledge which would extend over a span of what then seemed to us, twelve long years of hard toil. As we look back upon this twisting, winding,path,,up hill and down, and over many obstacles, we will note numerous changes in the members of the class and also in varied types of guides who were so ably chosen to direct our wandering minds, that we may safely reach the end of the trail. In September, 1938, we found a timid, bashful bevy of ten tots in the first grade, beginning the first lap of our journey under a very competent guide, Mrs. Lula Blair. The following members assembled at the starting point and began the long, weary tramp: Gerald Blank, Conley Daniels, Dean Hoag, Joan Jergens, Tommy Law, Marilyn Whittlessey, Marilyn Neilsen, Audrey Seaman, Doris Nelson, and Marjorie Wolcott. This first year had brought us through considerable swampy ground and undergrowth, nevertheless, we began to make some headway and we lost only one of our number, Marilyn Whittlessey, but two others joined us at the start of our second year, Elden Lanning and Deila Mae Sinclair, and we continued onward with the same expert guide. After a short period of rest, June North took the responsibility of guide. Another member of our company, Conley Daniels, pursued a new course and Evelyn Zeman joined our party. We were slowly but surely making progress and with the same guide and party, with the addition of two new members, Virgil Burris and Lois Gatch, and for a very short way, Jimmy Fox and Leroy Gist, we advanced down the fourth year on this trail of knowledge. We were apparently getting our bearings and learning the fundamentals of education and as we pushed on, we recall many joyous occasions and happy times together. In this, our fifth year, we lost the companship of Gerald Blank, Evelyn Seaman, Jimmy Fox, and Leroy Gist. We adopted no new members but a new guide, Annabelle Johnson, led us down the trail. Soon after the next start, Lois Gatch departed from our midst but later on Eldon Jacobsen joined our happy party to make eleven and we trudged on to explore still more of the unknown possibilities of the trail ahead and with Margaret Larsen leading us through this treacherous strip, we emerged to another opening where for the time being, we sought rest and enjoyment from our wearisome travels. Before we reached the end of our next hike, we found our number dwindling and four of our group, Tommy Law, Marilyn Neilsen, Audrey Seaman, and Delia Mae Sinclair, left us to follow other lanes of adventure. The remaining seven struggled on greatly encouraged by the capable support of an older and more experienced guide, Mrs. Nora Hecht, who was deter- mined we would all reach the end of the trail in good standing and with this goal in mind, we resumed our travels under her guiding hand. Then, in the eighth year of our tedious trip, we bade farwell to Joan Jergens but we still had the same efficient guide. On May 13, 1946, we adopted as our motto "Do Your Best" and our small group of six valiantly completed the elementary training of this course and perhaps covered some of the most important phases of the trail. We were now at the crossroads but we dare not tarry long, we must continue with eager anticipation for the new adventures we would meet down the winding trail that leads only to the security of Success. As our courses became more difficult to pursue, we were required to have more guides along the way. We were fully supplied by the aid of Superintendent G. W. Berrier, Kaleb Sunwall, Mrs. Clappison, and Edwin Jones. Our members were again increased part of the way by the addition of Joan Jergens, Frank Jensen, and Richard Seaman, and before we completed the freshman drive, we gained the acquaintance and friendship of Gladys Odland, who stayed 6 with us to the end. As we call the roll at the end of this lap, we find Frank Jensen and Richard Seaman have fallen by the wayside. Again we our adventurous way as sophomores but found Joan Jergens was absent from our file at the starting line. We continued under the same supervisor, G. W. Berrier, with Mrs., R. A. Holm, Herman Wilken, and Erwin Jones, his helping staff. Our company, now only seven, assembled to proceed down the trail through our junior year but were confronted with a complete change of guides, Superintendent O. B. Taylor, Clarence Hartman, and Jean Blessing. The same party continued down the homeward trail but here we reached our goal another member, Virgil Burris dropped from our group. Another change in guides gave us the efficient leadership of Superintendent Robert Bellis with the aid of Herman Wilken, Roy Roed, and Mary Garver, whose physical condition forced her to abandon the trail and her duties were placed in the hands of Mrs. Hein. Now with the never failing interest and assistance of this faculty, we, the class of 1950, numbering six, three girls, Marjorie Wolcott, Doris Nelson, Gladys Odland, and three boys, Elden Lanning, Dean Hoag, and Eldon Jacobsen, are approach- ing the end of the trail. We will climax this journey's end at our commencement exercises, May ll, 1950.

Sarah Boggs, from Willow Springs, identified Cryder as Potter, who swindled her father in a deal at her home town. Stan knew that Cryder was the man who swindled him. Sarah found a mineral spring and Sid Pressley decides to become mayor of the town. A mayor should have a wife. This brought up some exciting incidents. The land where Sarah found the mineral spring was owned by Cryder. Fast work was preformed to get the option to the land. Peggy secured it and all was happy, Stan soon finds out that he can drive a racer for a thousand dollars. Stan's racer won the race. The land was paid for and preparations for a hotel were being planned. As the curtain falls there is prospects of wedding bells to ring out for Peggy and Stan. 8 Junior-Sen ior Banquet The Junior-Senior Banquet of '50 was held at the Warden Hotel on May 6. It began at 7:00. After everyone was seated the pictures were taken. Our theme for the evening was "The Garden of Tomorrow". The table decorations were water sprinklers filled with a variety of flowers as the center pieces. The nut cups were miniature pink and silver sprinklers. A small "memories" book was used for the programs, menu, and the names of the faculty, Seniors, and Juniors. The girls were presented with corsages of two carnations and sweet pea. Boutonniers were given to the gentlemen. Following the banquet, everyone attended the dance at the Laramar Ballroom. The Menu: Fruit Cup Swiss Steak Whipped Potatoes Green Beans Perfection Salad Hot Rolls Celery Olives Ice Cream Rolls Coffee Program: "To Tomorrow", Darrell Benjamin: Response, Elden Lanning: Solo, "Garden of Tomorrow", Phyllis Curry, Poem, Delmar Lanningg "Planning Life's Garden", Mr. Bellisg Song, "Moonlight and Roses", Boys' Quartetg Group Singing. 9 Senior Trip The Seniors and Mr. and Mrs. Bellis started out at five for a long journey to Chicago. We were all interested at the various sites on the way. Our first stop was at Dubuque. We were thrilled to ride the Fenelon Place Elevator, the world's steepest, shortest scenic railway. From top we could see the Mississippi River, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa. We arrived in Chicago at two o'clock. Our first night in the second largest city in the world. That night we walked to the lake and also visited the large aquarium. For enter- tainment we went to the Oriental Theater and floor show and the movie, "Captain Caray U. S. A.". Friday we went to the radio program "Welcome to Travelers". This program was very enjoyable and interesting. Mr. Bellis and the boys went to the baseball game in the afternoon. Mrs. Bellis and the girls went to the show, "Three Came Home". That evening we went to the Trianon Ballroom. Ian Garber was the orchestra. Everyone was very thrilled and enjoyed the evening immensely. Saturday morning was spent visiting zoos and the navy pier. In the afternoon we visited the Museum of Natural Science and Industry. That evening was spent at the movie "Riding High" Sunday morning at nine we started for home. We were all tired after an exciting week end at the large city. In speaking for the Seniors, we enjoyed our Skip Day trip, for it was both educational and a lot of fun for all of us. One of the rooms of our hotel suite? ?

I'm so excited, Can't even think, Put milk in my pen, I drank up my ink, I chewed up my books, And gave my gum a slam, All because I've passed my exam I sat on the aisle, And walked down my chair, I oiled the earsers, And dusted my hair, I spread on my coat, And buttoned up the jam, All because I've passed my exam I'm so glad ----- my head Is spinning around and round When I climb up the stairs, I meet myself coming down. I punched Mr. Bellis, Greeted the gong, I'm still all here But I won't be for long, I kissed Mr. Roed And called him "honey lamb", All because I've passed my exam 12 Bradgate High School BACCALAUREATE, SUNDAY, MAY 7 Eight O'Clock P.M.

Reverend Share Class Poem Twelve long years ago, we started off to school , To us it seemed like, an awful foolish rule. We cou1dn't see why, our folks could treat us so, When they stayed at home, and "simply made" us go, But now as the years have quickly slipped away, It's like a dream back, to only yesterday. We wouldn't think of trading our fun for our tears, Since we've leaned that teachers are friends and not our fears So through the task of lessons, tiresome, dull, and hard, We managed to raise cane, while teachers weren't on guard. I bet we missed a lot we should and out to know, While playing tricks on those who sit across the row. Doris took up home economics to learn to cook real well, She's tried most everything, and it turned out swell. When she serves potatoes, she has a secret nack, For not a one of us can soak them in a sack. Now Marge don't have to study hard, it's easy as can be, I guess that's why she always smiles at everyone she sees. Of all the things she's learned about, spelling is the best, But please leave out "Bologna" or she'll surely miss her test Gladys always had a dislike sitting in a seat, After all, it's better than standing on your feet, To Mr. Roed's amazement, when coming through the door, Is to find that she would rather sit down on the floor. Jake doesn't like the color green, I'm positive, I know, Because it says to hurry up, don't drive so awful slow. He really likes the color red, it always takes his eye. If you will look, you'll see I'm right, Oh: What a pretty tie. Dean takes to sports, I think the best of all, He goes all out, while playing basketball. But' when he plays at Rutland, somehow he fails to think, I wonder, do you suppose, it's just "time out to wink" ? Flick is our president, a handsome guy is he, He won the vote of every girl as you can see. To hold this office long, would pain and ache his head. He would far much rather go with the gang instead. By now I know you're thinking, have we really gained success. So speaking for the entire class, I think the answer's yes. And may we proudly say to you, about that foolish rule, We are so very happy that our folks sent us to school. 14 Sophomores Norman Madsen Lowell Jennings Richard Jarvis Farrell Wright Leona Anliker Mrs. Hein Junzors Darrell Beqiamin Mr. Roed Donald Lanus Denny Hildman Phyllis Curry Delmar Lanning 1 5 w Q F5Qx?5Ay 3 Q KJ we Bb Q SE g Mmm fzamsymgm N Q5 Q E1ghth Grade Tommy Jolliffe Daryl Sittig Marvin Olson Paul Anliker Gary Fallesen Esther Gehrt Clarice Nelson Arlene Benjamin Roberta Foley Patty Jacobs Janiece Larsen Mary Dall Fresh m en Marvin Anderson Larry Pederson Mr. Wilkin Duane Fuller Paul Jennings Stanley Benjamin Muriel Foley Edwin Sittig 4th 89' Sth Miss Kruse Larry Bellis Gaylen L.

Gladys Odland Henry and George Breckenridge, with more ideas about how to spend money than how to earn it, find themselves in a state of financial embarrasement when their landlady, Mrs. Lennox, demands a deposit of a long overdue rent. Available money arrives when an old family friend sends money to entertain the friend's two daughters, Cecile and He1en,,over the week end. Henry's father is on a trip so they have to find a chaperon. This problem is solved, however, when they produce "Grandma" for the perfect chaperon. While every- thing is going fine, Mrs. Lennox finds her false hair missing, and suspeets the boys. Henry begins introductions and explanations - each one becoming more involved and farther from the truth. "Grandma" has many narrow escapes of which a few involve the police. Finally "Grandma" disappears permanently - in order that Mrs. Lennox can have her clothes back Then Delicia, who has decided to make a matrimonial excursion with P-Sam, demands to be an honest woman if there had been no real chaperon during the week end. The cur- tain falls as there are prospects of three sets of wedding bells ringing - or three sets of necks wrungf Mr. Bellis, Mr. Crosby, Mr. Hannah, Mr. Wilken, Mr. Roed Miss Hansen, Mrs. Jensen, Mrs. Hein, Miss Kruse 30 Z fylT?R35 in 5 3 X Hb SGW?
